Even “reasonable conservatives” forget the first half of the second amendment

Jon Swift has an idea:

It is the Second Amendment that makes our country free. A Global Second Amendment would make the world free. Nuclear proliferation could be the key to making the world safe for democratic proliferation.

We’d have to accept a Nuclear Regulatory Body, being necessary to the security of a free World.

I just find the links Danny, I don’t post the video. Maybe I help you find the link so you can notify the poster by reproducing it here.

P.S. This video deserves to be spread widely.

Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing?

ABC News (hat-tip Monkeyfister):

As President Bush took a question Thursday in the White House Rose Garden about scandals involving his Attorney General, he remarked, “I’ve got confidence in Al Gonzales doin’ the job.”

Simultaneously, a sparrow flew overhead and left a splash on the President’s sleeve, which Bush tried several times to wipe off.

Here’s video (hat-tip Melissa McEwan):

Well, it doesn’t quite match ABC’s telling.

Site news and thanks

So my pal Monkeyfister says he’s going out of town for the Memorial day weekend, tells his readers to come by here because I always have such great films on the weekend.

I appreciate it, really, but I’m going out of town too.

So I put some things on autoqueue, and you should enjoy them I hope. Maybe Whitishrabbit will post some things as well if she’s around. I may be spending a few days away from the computer altogether, but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t consider my readers.

If you’re new to Cannablog, welcome.

I’m still here until Saturday morning, so don’t be surprised to see a few more current event type posts until then.

Monica Goodling admits breaking the law

She didn’t mean to do it.

Remember, she has immunity. Whatever acts she undertook they were not of her own devising, she was working for people who wanted it done.

Immigration bill

Harry Reid (on NewsHour tonight):

“One of the things that I like about this bill is there’s so much disagreement. And I say that because no one’s happy.”

Dude, don’t pass the bill.

The idea that a consensus should make everyone unhappy does not make sense. Not at all. And I’m perfectly stoned enough to say so.

It isn’t Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Unhappiness, after all.

Booman writes:

The Dems have promised to produce something that will be signed by Memorial Day.

I certainly hope that this is not true, and would hope to expose whoever made such a promise as an idiot or a Republican, but I repeat myself.
