Interesting ruling on property rights HERE ..(HT: Insty)..Can a landlord prevent his/her tenants from possessing a firearm on rented premises? The Tennessee AG says they can.

Interesting that fourth amendment rights apply to rental housing, but in the opinion of the AG (in Tennessee) the 2nd doesn’t.

I think that the landlord should have the final say. It is his/her property, and they can set the rules for rental. While I am a strong supporter of 2nd amendment rights, I am also a strong believer that the landlord owns the property and can set the rules. Don’t like it? don’t rent from that person.

Post Racial

Anarchangel has some interesting observations regarding racial issues, or the lack therof. Seems that his daughter goes to a well integrated school.

But the comments show that there is a strong belief that there are still discriminatory practices happening…..and also show a lot of white guilt.

Sadly, it is generally culture that holds people back and makes for discrimination, rather than race or color.

Wanna get treated well? Don’t act like a lowlife or dress like a gang banger or rapper. Be nice and polite. Want to get a good job? Learn to speak english well, and not sound like you were edumacated in the deep south or Cabrini Green. Learn to use the word “ask” rather than “axe”.

Vaccine time!

So they are handing out hamthrax* swine flu vaccinations today in my area.

Dire warnings that there are short supplies and that it is first come, first served.

I’m being A Good Citizen and skipping the whole thing in order that some other citizen (like a poor orphan or whatever) can get his/her shot. Risking my life and health for another and all that folderol.

Or maybe I just don’t care enough to get that vaccine. Its hard to give a shit when these dire warnings happen every year like clockwork and yet we never have the big die-off that is promised.

Can anyone explain what the big issue with the Swine Flu is over regular flu?

Is it what the conspiracy nuts think, and this push for vaccination is a secretly hatched plan to infect all of us with some other dreaded disease (to be named later)…?

*hamthrax as a name for swine flu should be credited to JayG, (or so I am informed)

Not by police, but a bystander

Shot by an armed bystander in Boston. A psych patient attacks a doctor, and is shot by an armed, off duty security guard. Not an on duty or off duty cop, but a guy who was armed. Carrying a pistol.

Being a sheepdog, rather than a sheep

Possibly saving the doctors life (stabbed several times, but alive and recovering at this time) by shooting and killing the psycho psych patient. Even though most people in Massechussets are not allowed to be armed (Restrictive May Issue), this man was armed due to his profession, and he was in the right place at the right time.

How many more killings, robberies, or muggings could be stopped if more citizens were armed and able to stop criminal acts?

Humor…Put your coffee down and swallow.

If Email has a good use, it is the perpetuation of good jokes propagated via ones and zeros….

From a much forwarded email which wound up in my inbox…..

How I learned to mind my own business :

I was walking past the mental hospital the other day,
And all the patients were shouting, ’13….13….13.’

The fence was too high to see over, but I saw a
Little gap in the planks, so I looked through to see
What was going on…..

Some idiot poked me in the eye with a stick!

Then they all started shouting ’14….14….14’…

Sadly, I can see many of my friends being the organizer of such behavior at an institution…..You know who you are….
