  • To no one’s surprise, accidentally shooting yourself was, during the week of February 7, once again the most popular type of GunFAIL. Because it always is! Of course, it’s not really popular, per se. It’s just the most frequently-seen type of GunFAIL. Others, as we know, include accidentally shooting kids, of which there were seven instances, accidentally firing into the home or property of a neighbor (six), and accidentally shooting a family member (five).

    The top GunFAIL of the week, doubtless, was the story that may have finally shocked some small amount of sense into Florida. Until very recently, Florida’s gun-crazy legislature forbade counties and local governments from prohibiting gun owners from building firing ranges on their own property, regardless of housing density, their proximity to neighbors, children, etc. After a series of close calls, lawsuits, protests, etc., some of the state’s less-than-gun-crazy legislators actually proposed a new law prohibiting shooting on properties with more than one home per acre. But the legislation stalled a few times, and despite the fairly obvious wisdom of scaling back the “freedom” to just shoot anywhere, it was not at all clear that the bill would ever pass.

    Then, on February 7, 21-year-old Herold Lanham of Naples, Florida, taking target practice in his backyard, accidentally sent a round through his neighbor’s window and shot 14-year-old Deborah Ledesma in the arm and spraying her face with shattered glass in the process. As shocking as it must have been, it couldn’t have been a surprise. Lanham had already accidentally shot Ledesma’s house at least three times in the past. But Florida being Florida, he was never arrested until February, and then only because police contended that the three prior accidents should have put him on notice of the dangers of continuing to shoot. That apparently didn’t matter much to him, though, likely because he thought the law protected him. And indeed, his attorney immediately insi

  • The US Air Force is looking at re-starting production of the F-22, a mistake plagued aircraft. What this tells us is that the most expensive piece of military hardware, the F-35, is a failure of YUGGGGGGEEEEE proportions. It is corporate welfare in the line of nearly a trillion in national debt from this aircraft alone, jet the droolers in congress simply cannot get the courage to cancel this corporate welfare queen, made by Lockheed Martin... which by the way, paid zero federal income tax. Droolers think corporations actually pay 35% federal income tax.

    HAAAAA!!!!

    Advocates for the seizure and sale of U.S. parks and public lands are training their sights on marine coastal areas with a new bill that would give state governors unprecedented power over America’s coastal national parks.
    The bill, introduced by Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Bill Cassidy (R-LA), would give governors veto power over fishery management decisions in national parks and, in particular, would enable the governor’s political appointees to undo planned no-fishing zones that would help restore the health of reefs, fish, and other marine species.
    Critics argue that the legislation, S. 2807, would undermine established, science-based wildlife management plans, degrade the conservation protections afforded through America’s National Park System, and is part of a broader anti-park policy agenda that some members of Congress have been seeking to advance.
    This legislation fits largely within the realm of Bundy-style seizing and selling of public land. The National Park System makes wildlife and land management decisions based on conservation science, towards the goal of preserving the natural resources, systems, and processes of the park system for the enjoyment of all Americans. States often prioritize development and extraction over conservation, which can compromise the ecological integrity of publicly-owned lands like national parks and can have serious implications for wildlife.

  • Millions of low-income American students could lose access to free school meals under a proposal circulating among House lawmakers.
    The measure would reverse years of progress on free meals in U.S. schools by setting a much higher eligibility bar for schools to start making meals free to all students. Thousands of schools have expanded their meal offerings in recent years as researchers expose the extent of child hunger — and the dividends that come from curing it inside schoolhouses.
    The changes would take away schoolwide free meals programs from more than 7,000 schools that educate almost 3.4 million students in low-income areas, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities reports. Another 11,600 schools that have not yet taken advantage of the free meals option for all students would lose access to it under the proposal. Instead of using what’s called Community Eligibility, these schools would have to reinstate individual applications and verification procedures for huge numbers of students.
    The draft bill circulating in the House Education and Workforce Committee lists no author. But sources told ThinkProgress that the push to make free meals harder is coming from a specific handful of Republican congressmen on the subcommittee in charge of pre-school, primary, and secondary education issues.

    No, I never ignore the science behind archaeology or other sciences. There is a commonality in their findings of warmer conditions millions and hundreds of millions of years ago. They correlated the source of the heat with the increase temperature. What you and your kind always ignore is the source of the reflected heat. The sun is, of course, source of the heat, but you droolers cannot explain how the reflected heat is being retained in the atmosphere.

    Science and reason always trumps (HAAAA!!!) your delusion.

    Early in Obama's first administration, removing the fake ceiling on SS taxes on all forms of income was thought to be a no-brainer. Republican obstructionism has caused the stagnation in Medicare and SS expansion.

    And droolers that RECEIVE SS vote for the lunatics that vigorously obstruct.
