That’s not what it means



Speaking of ambulance-at-the-bottom-of-a-cliff ’solutions’ that involve setting a billion dollars on fire and not accomplishing anything, our government announced it’s new asinine gun buyback program. As I was shooting the shit with an Aussie pro-gun person, the scheme basically amounts to 95% of the original value if the gun is still in its’ original packaging, 70% if it’s been fired once, or 20% if it’s fired an entire magazine.

This is what we call "taking the piss." Their whole spiel about "market value not retail value" is a complete crock of shit given that the aforementioned weapons are illegal thus cannot be assayed in a regular market therefore should technically be worth more than what they were legally. I fully sympathise with the gun owners either suing the shit out of the government, or like fucking everyone I’ve spoken to down here about it, just not declare their guns and wait for the law to be sunsetted next June.

The whole thing reminds me of why eminent domain is a massive scam, as pointed out here by donoteat1. Hint, if something is important enough to require eminent domain, then the government can front up the fucking cash and not be legalised thieves. This goes doubly-so for you anti-gun cucks: either help front up the cash out of your own pocket, or


I’m not going to tolerate being stolen from just because it makes certain people perceive themselves to be safer.

In my country now, thanks to the govermment, now lawyers can get Guns. This means that my mom, who is a lawyer, can have one. But despite that, she decided to not have one. I asked her why and she said:
" I believe that crimes that involves stealing would certain drop immensialy, i feel concerned about other types of crimes and violence such as traffic fights, bar fights or neighboors fighting agaisnt each others. And theres also the typical concern of pulling the trigger and shot someone by accident".

The actual act of fighting fires may suck, but you get to be the hero. It’s what a lot of kids want to be when they grow up for a reason.

Most firefighters aren’t rushing into burning buildings every other day or spending a week fighting a forest fire. Most see a fire once a month, if that, and it involves standing on the street and pointing a hose at some windows.

I mean, not to shit on firefighters or anything, but let’s not confuse the action-packed dramatic heroics of the silver screen with boring-old reality.

Learned about Proud Boys today.

One of their initiations is to hit a new member until they name 5 brands of cereal.

Why are white supremacists so weird?

Point taken.


@Ereiam
To be clear, I don’t think we’re really on the verge of an actual shooting war here. There’s no public appetite for it. The ones who most want war, like Bolton and Pompeo, are admittedly, the ones with most of the direct authority necessary to make it happen, but they’re alone. Neither the military in general or the country at large support Trump. The cabinet member who probably had the most pull with the armed forces was Mattis, and he’s gone now.

On the Iranian side, we have the IRGC, who are almost a law unto themselves, but they still don’t represent the whole state. The recent Oman skirmish might have been an attempt on their part to scuttle negotiations between Abe and Khamenei (one of the tankers was Japanese), so there’s some internal friction there.
