Hogg’s Mouth and Missiles



The protest march over the weekend has caused a good deal of chatter, most of it negative from the political right. Look, David Hogg’s parents ARE proud of him. Why are you surprised at how he behaves? Where do you think that he learned to talk that way?

If 69% of the people believe that Gun Laws need to be “tightened,” should we be trying to figure out why they think that way? Shouldn’t we be discussing the ideas and merits rather than the language of one un-cultured 17 year old?

While 60 Minutes and the press salivate over the titillating idea that Trump and Stormy watched a shark week documentary, the Houthi’s are launching MRBM missiles at Saudi Arabia.

In case you are saying “the Who?” the Houti’s are allied with the Iranians and so they are fighting ISIS and Sunni’s everywhere. And where did they get their hands on a bunch of Burkan-2 (SCUD) missiles? And how long will it be until the missiles are armed with more than TNT?

Mad Mike Hughes is a huckster who managed to convince a bunch of sincere flat-Earthers to give him enough money to launch himself 1875 feet into the air in a “attempt to prove” that the Earth is flat. By the by, it wasn’t his first launch, but the last time he did it he didn’t care about the shape of the planet.

Evil Knievel tried the same thing once upon a time. Frankly, Evil’s was far more entertaining…

  1. Parkland is not a slum area, so I’m wondering why that 17-year old isn’t cultured.
    I own guns, but agree that assault rifles are not necessary for civilians and the background checks should be tightened up. So what am I classified as? left? or right?
    Mad Mike just went and proved that PT Barnum was right – fools are born every minute!


  2. Why do you think cultured is limited to “not slum” areas? Culture is a matter of upbringing, not a matter of affluence.

    Not that he strikes me as uncultured in the few videos I just checked out. He rather resembles somebody who has had Precisely Fucking Enough and no longer cares what people think of him.

    As to why we’re not having a sober discussion on the merits? That would be a question to ask the gun nutters. Not that you’ll get a reasonable answer mind you, they have no interest in a sober discussion on the merits. Fanatics rarely do. That’s why they’re attacking and mocking the students. That’s why gun nutters invariably go off into arcane trivia about weapons classification to “prove” their opponents wrong. Etc… Etc…

    As happens all too often, the fanatics on both sides drive the discussion. Sane voices on the right and left are drowned out by the louder voices of the nutters and the gun grabbers. (Not helped by the fact that many are at least sympathetic with the extremists of their side and thus tend to spread their memes and propaganda.)
