North Carolina HB2

HB2

Raleigh Constituent files his latest report from North Carolina:

Dear John Jacob,

The only two things I really know about North Carolina House Bill Number 2.

Thing #1: Republican Good Ole Boys in their Smoke Filled Back Rooms believe HB2 to
be
the greatest Legislation since the Magna Carta.

Thing #2: Democrat Good Ole Bolsheviks in their Tofu Filled Back Rooms believe HB2 to
be the worst legal edict since street urchins were executed for treasonous theft of bakery
bread in Dickensian England.

Really. That is all I know.

How this will alter the outcome of November elections is a mystery to me and equally
mysterious (to me) is why Republicans would set land speed records with a special session
to fight this particular battle when SO many other subjects need attention and remedy.

Shut down the Department of Education? Repeal the State Income Tax? Make light bulbs
legal again in North Carolina? How did BATHROOMS move to the top of the list?

Naturally Communist Chatterratti dominate the airwaves and broadsheets
and Internet Tubes with virtually no information beyond the breathless news how
bad, bad, bad this must be and the need for summary and immediate repeal.

To be fair today’s obsession with public restrooms maybe nothing more than
the logical legacy of yesteryear’s obsession with outhouses and privies here in
North Carolina.

In any case to me this seems to be another instance where the Children of Cain
have added complexity to an otherwise easily understood topic.

Just as Urban Yoots need sex education because they never lived in an agrarian
environment surrounded by birds and bees and hogs and horses and even chickens
and dogs in heat, Urban Adults need laws to help them understand why people
need to conduct their private business, uh, privately.

Me? I think I may just follow the example of that Astronaut who drove across
country in Depends to kidnap her lover. Who needs bathrooms?

Bemusedly yours,

My name is Monroe Mann and I used to have a Facebook Account. Used to? Yeah, I deleted it–and all of my 3000 ‘friends’ (who were not really my friends anyway)–irrevocably. I didn’t deactivate: I DELETED IT. It’s gone. Why? Well, I used to live in China. As much as I love China, and 虽然我觉得中国真是非常棒,I […]

Firewood Burn: Hypocrisy of the Social Elites

Canadian Common Sense

(Image Credit: www.sodahead.com) (Image Credit: www.sodahead.com)

“In other words, even though wood is a renewable resource that could reduce our dependency on fossil fuels, it is being systematically outlawed by the authorities.”

This is the third consecutive winter that I’ve heated my home with firewood. We’ve got two stoves, the big one in the basement and the little one upstairs that takes the edge off when it’s -40°C. We don’t burn oil, propane or natural gas. Nor do we use any heaters powered by electricity.

Not only has this saved my family thousands of dollars for our winter heating bill, this oldest of old technological practice of burning firewood still works even if the lights go dark.  Living in a rural area, we are prone to frequent blackouts and rolling outages.

What we save in dollars does cost us in time; it is a long process to block, split, stack and bring…

Socialist Europe Precedes Socialist America

Life In Socialist Germany

Life In Socialist Germany

Read through the list of Socialist Germany innovations – color coded garbage,
automotive restrictions, exorbitant sales taxes – and reflect on how many of
these concepts have already crept into American Culture.

Dennis Rogers Owns a Gun Too!

DennisGunControl

It must be that time of the year! Raleigh Constituent arrives with a new tale of mischief and
mayhem from the Capital City of North Carolina…..

Dear John Jacob;

Remember Raleigh News & Observer Columnist Barry Saunders?

The celebrity cheerleader who never saw a gun control idea he did not embrace
unless it violated the JaneFondian precept of “Rules For Thee, BUT Not For ME?

His reputation as a gungrabber was, ahem, slightly tarnished when he let it
slip that he, in fact, owned a gun, but was not really heavily trained in
conscientious weapon manipulation.

Barry Saunders Owns a GUN LINK HERE

It may be hard to remember Gun Control Barry because the News & Observer has
diligently scrubbed his gun control columns from the Internet.

(See for yourself GRNC LINK HERE )

Annnnnyway, the News & Observer has once again published YET ANOTHER gun control
homily and retired News & Observer Emeritus Columnist Dennis Rogers has stepped
into the cheerleader role on Facebook.

News & Observer Column Link Here

Dennis Rogers steps up to the plate with Facebook praise for Raleigh News & Observer Editorial:

DennisRogersGun2

EXCEPT for one small detail:

In 1998 Dennis Rogers openly admitted he kept at least one (or more!) loaded guns
around his house (WITH NO SAFETY).

Yes, Mr. Rogers joins the vast overwhelming majority of Democrats who were for an idea
before they were against it. (Known on the street as a flip flopper)

Gosh, I love this town!

No Wait NYC Gun Permit

CourtesyCard2

BlueBloodsText

Blue Bloods, the Tom Selleck Police Drama we love to pillory here at the JohnJacobH blog
has provided America with yet another vignette of real world (?) gun control politics.

(Link to previous Blue Bloods harangue CLICK HERE)

Already filled with endless examples of nepotism and oligarchy in a fictional Police
Commissioner’s family at the top of New York City’s Cop Shop food chain,

[[(Tom Selleck, current Police Commissioner, is the son of the
former Police Commissioner, and HIS son is current lead Detective eventually to
be groomed as the future Police Commissioner.) [Wait, there is more. Tom Selleck’s
other son is a Patrol Officer and his daughter is District Attorney, eventually
destined to become highly placed Bureaucrat-In-Charge of some aspect of the Judiciary
in Gotham City)]]

a recent episode details a wonderful moment when the wife of Lead Detective Regan
seeks to bypass that nasty 90 day wait for a pistol permit by flashing her COMMISSIONERS
COURTESY CARD

Yes, if this episode is to be believed, anyone who has access to the secret club of Commissioner
Courtesy Cards has but to wave this modern magic wand to receive all the privileges of rank
denied to ordinary mundanes trapped within the borders of Oz.

Rules for WE, but not for THEE

When you watch this video courtesy of NC Gun Guy notice the furtive glance of the
actress before she produces her magic get-out-of-red tape jail-free card.
A delightful touch and worthy of an Academy Award.

Who would not be afraid to let the great unwashed dumb masses learn not all rules
apply to all people?
