And speaking of guns, the most recent Rasmussen poll reveals...prepare to be shocked!...that Americans are buying guns because they "fear President Obama's gun control agenda:"
The Rasmussen telephone survey found that only 23 percent of the respondents believe gun sales have risen due to concerns about rising crime. Twenty-one percent are not sure. The poll also revealed that 63 percent of male Americans and 51 percent of women believe gun sales are linked to concerns about new gun control schemes. Another finding is that 65 percent of Republicans and 66 percent of those not affiliated with either major political party think booming gun sales are connected to fears about increased government restrictions.Well, that makes no sense to me at all, since the inestimable Ray Schoenke of the American Antigun and Harlots Marching Society...excuse me...Hunters and Shooters Association recently guaranteed me that the socialist in the White House just loves guns, and we on the Looney Right should just "stop spreading the lie:"
Let’s get something straight: No one is going to take anyone’s guns away. There is no gun ban coming from the Obama administration.Wowie! I feel all tingly up my leg just reading that! Ray even said that he "staked his reputation" on Obama. That's impressive, but I was sort of wondering, "What reputation?"
The rhetoric about gun bans is ridiculous. Most of us know the NRA leadership and others use the specter of gun bans to raise money. But, it’s divisive, and damaging for all law-abiding gun owners. In too many new reports of late, we’ve seen the prospect of gun ban included as a rational for deranged people who have wreaked havoc.
I don’t want all gun owners tarred by the craziness of a few.
Finally, I'm worried about Colorado, while topping the list as the healthiest state in the union, is falling behind on beer drinking. According to Sloshspot.com, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota and New Hampshire are swilling more than 40+ gallons consumed per capita, while the Rocky Mountain High State only consumes 31-35 gallons per capita. Come on, guys! Get with the program!
