Two reasons I never got into Law Enforcement were Child Abuse and Domestic Violence. Having to remain calm and professional after seeing a woman or a child beaten, abused or raped would have driven me insane, chemically dependent or in prison.
And unfortunately, our community is not spared from idiots. TacTissy was the target of domestic violence, but she has come forward and called it.
Whomever the idiot was that hurt her, he must be one scared sumbitch. We don’t take kindly to his brand of macho.
So many acres… so little lime.
Joss Whedon is the screenwriter and director responsible for both Avengers blockbusters as well as television favorites “Firefly” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” Unsurprisingly, Whedon is also an outspoken leftist who uses his Twitter feed to mock and ridicule conservatives. He thinks politicians who deny climate change should be denied penicillin, believes men should be denied the vote on “reproductive health,” and despises Justice Clarence Thomas and organized religion. He certainly hates all the right people — so why are progressives mad at him? It seems one of his strong female characters isn’t quite strong enough for radical, third-wave feminists.

I have not seen the movie (Or plan to unless it comes to USA Network) so I am going with what was said online. Apparently he dared to make the Black Widow somewhat human with frailties and that upset a lot of fans.
This is hilarious since Whedon has a history of creating strong female characters and some people have said that it has inspired many a young girls to grown into a strong female which is great. But there is a problem with that: Strong Women reject Bitchy-Whiny Feminists.
Strong Women are what the want to be. They can be sexy and giggly or Serious and All-Business. They will worry about their figures or about their kids. They may do CrossFit or long-range rifle shooting. But what they are not and never will is purposeful Victims and will not tolerate Gamma Mates. They are looking for a partner, not Pajama Boy (or girl).
It seems that Whedon’s work was not appreciated by the Bitchy-Whiny Feminists who are part and parcel of the political universe he lives in. And maybe that is the reason he creates Strong Women characters: The pickings are slim on his side of the fence. Insecurity is not sexy.
And I found this collage in Facebook. We may need all the cheese in Wisconsin to counter the whine.
….he might be into something.
Because guys have no problems saying “I took one in the chest” but they won’t fess up to take one in the jewels or the ass and those areas are always unprotected.
Just found out about Nigel Terry’s passing. I guess I am one of those weirdos that believe Excalibur was the best movie ever made about the legend of King Arthur.
Many great actors and actresses were in that movie and all gave amazing performances. If you haven’t seen it, you must. But Terry’s best scene was, in my opinion, this one:
I haven’t seen the movie in a while. I guess I’ll be doing that later.
Farewell King Arthur.
Things are still “fresh” or at least the info has not been released in full. But the saddest part so far has been the apologists of the attack because, you know, them drawings were so mean:
Now, if an excuse could be made for violence because cartoons are deemed by a group as to be so insulting they demanded the killing of those who draw them and support them, Does that mean that the Gun Community can go on hunting? We have been insulted over and over by cartoonists in the last 30 or more years, right?
Remember, we have been accused of every kind of madness and insulted in ways that would send chartered planes full of Jihadists to NYC to try to park them inside skyscrapers and in all that time not one single pro-gun control cartoonist, commentator, editorialist, journalist, etc has been killed because of their work against the Second Amendment.
But usually, the people who dislike one right, tend to have little consideration for the others, even when they are protecting what feeds them.
Oh well, I need more coffee.
Mass tort actions, especially those brought by plaintiffs’ attorneys (aka ambulance chasers), depend upon a large number of individuals harmed. When dealing with asbestos or tobacco, it was easier to find potential clients. However, when dealing with gun shot victims, there are many fewer and it was harder to line up potential clients. Thus the alliance with municipalities was critical for both the private plaintiffs attorneys who handled cases for New Orleans and other locales and for those who used Kairys’ public nuisance theory. By taking the focus off the individual and putting it on a mass group, the “blame the smoker” approach of defense attorneys is harder to employ. Erichson noted this in his essay for Suing the Gun Industry.As a matter of causation, plaintiffs in individual gun cases have difficulty proving that different industry conduct would have prevented a particular victim’s shooting. Municipal gun lawsuits, by treating the harm on an aggregate level in terms of cost to the municipality, remove attention from any individual shooting and thus diminish the power of the defense arguments that focus on blameworthy victims, owners, or shooters. Thus, the public entity plaintiff in tobacco litigation is less vulnerable to to the defendants’ “blame the smoker” argument for contributory negligence, comparative fault, or assumption of risk, while the public entity plaintiff in gun litigation is less vulnerable to the defendants’ “blame the shooter” argument for superseding cause or for challenging actual causation.

I just know this is going to be an awesome series of posts. I know it is not as sexy as seeing CSGV members go unhinged or some gun review, but this stuff is where what needs to be learned, specially Gun Culture 2.0 as it was one of the darkest moments in Gun Rights history.
Seriously people, read every single post.
