Red River Shootout Rebranded Again

Years ago the wizards of smart decided that the 100 year old name "Red River Shootout" for the college football game between Oklahoma and Texas sounded too violent. They neutered it and began referring to the game as "Red River Rivalry" (which sounds totally gay). Next year they are retiring their new name and taking a step back toward condoning wonton violence by calling it the Red River Showdown.

Oooo... what's the world coming to?

"New York Compliant" AR-15

This is what happens when you try to ban guns based on cosmetic features. Yeah, it's ugly, but its legal.

The company, Black Rain Ordnance, said the rifle would eliminate features that were made illegal under the SAFE Act. The gun will not have a pistol grip and will include a non-threaded muzzle and a 10-round low-capacity approved magazine.

"With the continual trampling of the 2nd Amendment in New York, Black Rain Ordnance is proud to announce their 'New York Compliant' rifles," the company said on its website. "These rifles feature all of the quality and craftsmanship of the standard BRO-lines, but with the added features that allow for legal possession."

This will no doubt be characterized as a "loophole", because after all, the gun grabbers want to ban the guns themselves, not the features. But banning all guns doesn't pass Constitutional muster, and banning guns by name never works because that's just marketing. So instead they try banning specific features that the guns have in an attempt to make them simply go away.

But enter the free market, and voila, you've got NY Compliant rifles selling for a premium price.

ATF to Retards: My bad

The ATF, which duped mentally challenged individuals into committing crimes and then arresting them for it, says they had no idea they were mentally challenged. That's the bureaucratic equivalent of "my bad".

"We do not target the developmentally disabled," [ATF Director Todd] Jones told House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., adding that ATF learned of that the people were disabled as "the result of defense pleadings" in court.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that ATF targeted developmentally disabled people during undercover drug and gun-buying operations throughout the country. "In Wichita, Kan., ATF agents referred to a man with a low IQ as 'slow-headed' before deciding to secretly use him as a key cog in their sting," according to the Journal Sentinel.


Jones told Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich., that "hindsight's 20-20," but said that ATF agents hadn't apologized to any of the mentally disabled people they recruited and then arrested in undercover operations because the individuals are in prison, so "the opportunity for interaction is limited."

Hey, why bother catching actual criminals when you can simply make up crime and arrest people for it?

Twitter TV

I'll be the first to admit I've never liked twitter. I generally have no interest in opening an account nor following anyone. And I've come to hate Twitter TV. I don't know if it's TV channels jumping on the twitter bandwagon or if twitter is paying for exposure on mainstream programming, but I cannot stand inane twitter popups whilst I'm watching my shows.

I've tuned out from more than one show for showing stupid, vapid comments every five seconds. Maybe I'm becoming an old fuddy duddy.
