Travel And CCW

Oklahoma is a backward jerkwater hell hole. I dislike nearly everything about this place. The alcohol laws are idiotic. Only 3.2 beer in grocery stores, everything else must be sold warm and in a liquor store. The traffic laws are draconian, and the police really seem to have nothing better to do than enforce traffic. The people are mindless sheeple who will do anything a non-Democrat will say.
One thing I like. No love. The Oklahoma CCW permit. With this permit I am able to carry my weapon in the following states:Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and, Wyoming.
It is the the widest accepted CCW permit in the country. When I go back to Nebraska, I can pack virtually the whole way... Except in Iowa. They only accept their own permit. Stuck up those guys are. I guess our backward jerkwater training is not good enough for them.

I am happy that Nebraska finally decided to allow reciprocity. I was worried that I might have to get a State ID or something to allow me to carry. But with reciprocity, no problem.

If transporting a gun through the airlines wasn't such a pain in the ass, I would take it with me to Seattle, but the pain is too great. I won't be packing in Washington. It is too bad, I feel kind of naked with out my piece.

Good work Oklahoma. Good work Nebraska. You suck Iowa.

40 Years of Drug War Got Us??

A trillion dollars poorer, and a stack of bodies. Prohibition does not work. We should have learned that the first time we tried it.

The government's bid to have ownership over what you put in to your body is a total failure. After 40 years of "fighting" the war on drugs, the Government has managed to spend over $1,000,000,000,000 and kill over 1000 people. Not one of the goals set forth by Ricard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Regan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, OR our current President has been met. We have more drug addiction now then at any time in our history. We have more drug related crime now than at any time in our history. We have not interdicted any thing. Drugs are easy to obtain, and are inexpensive.

It is time we end this idiotic "war." It is time the Government realizes what the founders set forth is ultimately true. The answer to the question "Who owns me?" will continue to be answered "I OWN ME." What part of "Secure in my papers, property, and person" does Washington NOT understand?
If the Government wants to get involved, it should extract itself from our daily lives, end the stupid prohibition, and allow people who know how to make drugs, make the drugs. Why would you buy your drugs from Bob the drug dealer down in the bad part of town, when Philip Morris, or Baer are selling it at the corner Walgreens?
Allow the states to set up drug treatment facilities, and treat addiction like what it is, a MEDICAL issue. In return the states will give the Federal Government some of the tax money they will make from excise taxes on the drugs they sell. What an awesome idea. Washington gets free money, and the people get to be that much more free. Everybody wins except the moron Republicans who believe that morality can be forced down everybody's gullet at the point of a gun. So... Everybody wins!

I didn't drink a beer tonight. It was MY choice. Just as I will not smoke the crack pipe when it becomes legal. Why? I CHOOSE not to. Freedom is choice.

The SCOTUS Apointment

It will be a liberal, just as Sotomayor was. The Democrats own the Senate, so there is no hope of blocking the nomination. There is little point in any discussion on the subject.

What are the Republicans bringing up? Her stance on gays. Seriously that is what they are bringing up. That she supported openly gay people in the military. Wow. Way to go opposition. Let's bring up completely irrelevant, non Constitutional idiocy. That will certainly stop her nomination, and make us look awesome. Let's say she likes the gays. Way to go dip-shits.

Gonna get in.
