I’m not sure* why I post about this stuff anymore, just kind of makes a person sad, but… South Carolina Republican Dean Allen, campaigning to lead that state’s National Guard, had a “machine-gun” social on Saturday. For $25, attendees got yummy barbecue, a clip of bullets, and the chance to win a semi-automatic weapon.
And then Angry Jesus came down from the cerulean Heavens and grew to a great and awful height before the cowering Christians and He said, in an enormous, terrible voice as large as the vaulted universe, “Thou hast corrupted My teachings; thou art makers of war and destroyers of peace; thou hast twisted My words and the words of Our Lord, My father, and thou shalt be punished…” And lo they trembled before his wrath, and he turned them gay and made them move to the coasts, where they discovered the pleasures of decent coffee and a night without television, and yea they were happy again, and put down their weapons, and truly began to do His work.
*Actually, it’s just an excuse to post this video from a
Al Qaida training session “gun show” in Kentucky, which also makes me sad, but at least has explosions.
