What do Packers, San Bernardino, and maternity leave have in common? Climate change!
(page 1 of 2)
You can thank the Squire for my beloved Packers’ amazing comeback Thursday night.
It’s not because your humble bloggeur didn’t have faith. No, it’s not that at all. Honest! He turned off his b&w Philco console at halftime only reluctantly due to the incessant wailing of the sophisticated Dark Matter/Negative Energy Detectors here at the Policy Werkes. The complicated device was sensing bad football juju. Down 17-0 at halftime, the white lab coats determined that a dramatic fix was in order. Technicians initiated an immediate shutdown protocol of the b&w Philco console TV, the Squire retreated to his bedchambers and the season was saved.
You’re welcome, Mike, Aaron, and Packer fans everywhere.
‘But first, the weather’
Now climate change has hit San Bernardino, Calif. Instead of CNN or Fox, the Stately Manor should have been attuned to the Weather Channel. “Cloudy, with a chance of terrorism.”
Got to admit, temperatures in the mid- and upper 40s in December here in Wisconsin have the indentured servants stockpiling ammo at the Stately Manor, as well.
Also checked in on MSNBC, which had dispatched its agents to assess the security of the local abortion mill in San Bernardino. Everyone safe there, it reported. Well, not everyone was safe, but let’s not quibble.
After drawing isotherms in the sand in Paris after the slaughter, the Current Occupant issued this stern warning: “We’re going to have to, I think, search ourselves as a society to make sure that we can take basic steps that would make it harder … for individuals to get access to weapons.” Notice, he didn’t call out terrorists, but … (dramatic ellipses) “individuals.”
Democrats all across the country are recycling the same talking points. Headline from the DailyCaller Wednesday, “With few known details, Martin O’Malley blames NRA for California shooting.”
State Rep. Melissa Sargent, D-Madison, was on the same page. Within hours of the tragedy: “Thoughts and prayers are not enough. We must forego political rhetoric and act now in order to address the epidemic of gun violence facing our country.” By my slide rule, political rhetoric got foregone oh, by maybe one word — that being the word “and” which was immediately followed by the familiar political rhetoric of disarming good people in reaction to the depredations of bad people.
Facebook meme: “That moment when you realize blaming a white, Christian, NRA member for the San Bernardino killings just isn’t going to cut it.”
Irony: California has the toughest gun control laws in the country.
