Some thoughts about the recent tragedy in Connecticut. We will be deluged with a host of gun control arguments, saying the inevitable “If there were no guns, this would not have happened.” They’ll be answered by a host of people daring to apply “logic” to the situation: “You can’t eliminate guns to eliminate violence — the only people that have guns will be by definition, the very criminals you hope to disarm”. This will be countered by the Left’s nasty attack that presumes that if you are defending firearms, you are advocating violence. This will continue, and nothing will get done that will effectively solve this issue. Why should it? Nobody’s addressing the underlying issue. Sick people, in a sick, violent culture, aping what they see every day in countless ads. How did we get here? In the 1800’s, people in the American West went around armed to the teeth. It was common in civilized areas for people to have firearms that they could buy at the hardware store as teens. A 16-year-old could go down to the hardware store and buy a case of dynamite with nothing more than the money to pay for it. No waiting period. No… Read more »
Damn, I’d like to post that whole thing on my website, picture and all.

Thanks for the reminder, forgot to ask about putting it out over his ‘name’, kinda jumped the gun.
Ah, I see the answer here.
You got picked up by Doug Ross, too: http://directorblue.blogspot.com/
You’re famous. I suggest hiring drb as your agent.
Does this mean your fee just doubled?
Yes, but the fee is still cheap at half the price. 😉
Watch what you say – you know it’s the end of the year when I do employee reviews.
you already gave me my review a few posts up when you said:
“I suggest hiring drb as your agent.”
Whereabout JP, had trouble finding it?
Search for “JPA” which is his initials for JPAttitude.com, or search for the title, “Some thoughts about the recent tragedy.” It’s just a link to my site.
Outstanding!!! You have my vote for president!!
Whoever gave you a thumbs down is an idiot.
Seriously, Fweetness, can’t you be decent for just one day.
Some people have anger issues.
some ppl need a hug. at least you know he’s reading it.
LOL! Haters amuse me.
Perl, you are 100% correct, and that was brilliantly written! I am not a Christian myself. I am spiritual, and I HOPE that Christ was the son of God, but I just can’t have that faith. I am Buddhist, which is not really a religion, but it’s close enough for me. But, and this is a BIG but, I try to live my life by Christian values, which are also much like Jewish values and even Buddhist values. I try to be good, and I try to not hurt anyone or anything, I try not to be greedy or selfish, I don’t take things that are not mine, and so on. I personally don’t believe that God will smite me because I don’t practice rituals or believe in things that defy logic because some human told me to. That all said, I believe completely that God belongs in schools. Not as a dominant force, but as a moral voice that, as you so eloquently noted, has not been replaced with anything at all. I think that one thing many people get confused about is the difference between God and religion. God is an idea that most people and most religions… Read more »
Thank you. I think there is a lot that can be obtained by living as a Christian* amongst other Christians without having to compromise one’s morals. I take a different view of the Bible than a lot of people — and I think that a welcoming attitude helps people to live better, more meaningful lives, which *is* what it’s all about IMO.
* Note: I do not consider Westboro troglodytes to be Christian in any way, shape, or form.
That is what Jefferson would say and many other Founders of this country (Practicing Christians or not). Jefferson gets hate and lot of the founders get hate, however, they understood the importance of freedom of (all) religion(s) and the importance of Christian principles and attitudes in the public and private realms. Once you remove something benign and it gets substitute by something that is not benign or all that is left is an empty void problems arise. Every single country that has sought to either replace G-d with another humanistic deity or with no deity has found itself to be a country with serious human rights violations.
oh boo hoo what about animal rights violations????
for instance, animals got the right not to be perved on by ppl. planet of the apes notwithstanding.
Well done, Perl, darlin’
Why, thank you. #awshucks.jpg
My friend, I need ask permission to stuff this in my faceboot notes. Guidance pertaining the citation, please? Anon, blog dude extraordinare at ihtm, perlcat or what?
perlcat works fine for me. If I ever take the paper bag off my head, then I can claim my material.
Everyone here has already said it all, you are one cool cat.

Well said. Spot on!
They can talk about mental illness if they want to and fine maybe there is some mental illness involved. But when someone shoots one 5 or 6 year-old after another, then a word liberals are uncomfortable with must also be used:EVIL. The press were said to have rolled their eyes when President Reagan called the Soviet Union, the “Evil Empire”.
All i can think about now is presents for those kids, wrapped up with their names on them under a tree..
I haven’t thought about my gun at all.. I have surmised though, since i tend to assume that Hell doesn’t exist, that Science must now engineer one precisely for this deranged evil fuck
As far as i can tell, from facebook and reddit, liberals are going on more about mental health safeguards then they are about taking anyone’s guns away. On reddit, there is spirited defense of handguns in the main story (ironically, others are calling for my AR-15, just as Piers Morgan was the other day, which wasn’t used today as far as i know..)
My brother and I were just talking about those poor families with presents under the tree. I keep them in my prayers that they find peace. Spot on perlcat!
You two… I caught myself staring across the street at the light display. For a long time. Hug them a little tighter tonight Alien, and StrinaM, hope your guy knows how lucky he is. Bless you both.
One of the docs at the hospital and I were talking about that too.
I have a lot of opinions about that. In an age of moral relativism, a truly sick person like this may not get committed to an asylum like they should — as a sociopath, they may function well enough to “get along” in society for the most part without setting off any alarms for being basically inhumanly evil.
While the divinity of a certain historical character may be open for conjecture, the concept of “good” and “evil” remains a profoundly religious concept. As Voldemort would say, an a world without religion, there is only power, and those who are willing to seize it. (There may be other opinions in the non-religious realm, but this remains as equally valid. It’s only when some form of moral philosophy in the form of what passes for religion is applied that people can say that A is good, while B is evil.)
I’m trying real hard to not think about the presents and such — too much for me.
Something to lighten the discussion up: http://imgur.com/A5Bkv
now cut that out!
We have to be able to laugh at ourselves — when we take ourselves too seriously, we wind up being the fools we are trying to avoid looking like.
I like the t-shirt and your thoughts. I also like this thought copied from a comment section I saw earlier today.
Teaching people that each and every person is created in the image of God and is precious places value on human life. Teaching people that we are all accidents of nature and a plague on the earth makes human life disposable and worthless.
