Well, it just keeps getting more insane doesn’t it? This time we get two really stupid ideas packaged together, no extra charge from our ‘betters’.
I don’t know about you but, I wasn’t a particularly responsible voter at eighteen. Neither were my friends, we had other things on our minds, mostly girls. :)
But at sixteen the only thing we cared about was getting our driver’s license, and girls and beer, of course :)
They were pretty good days but neither we nor anybody else thought we ought to be required to decide how to run country.

Well, we haven’t done Bill Whittle for a while, so let’s have a look at his latest shall we.
He here brings us the numbers to back up what any rational man knows, Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. It’s like I always say, the safest place in America is a honky-tonk bar out here in the west, where everyone (and I do mean everyone) is carrying at least one gun, plus assorted cutlery. Here’s Bill.
It’s so simple even a Librul should be able to figure it out, although since they consistently add apples and oranges and get lemonade, that might be wishful thinking.

We’ve kind of gotten away from Bill Whittle lately. No reason, I just haven’t been paying attention (Shame on me!). But I don’t like making excuses, and I do like Bill, so here’s his new one: The Road to Hell.
It’s important, I think, that neither Bill nor I am doubting that the people promoting these schemes have good (often very good) intentions. They want to help people, but instead of just going ahead and helping people, and encouraging others to as well, they think it better to use the power of government to force others to do what they think is good, and that’s where the road to Hell starts, with force.
