Sex Offenders and zero tolerance, both bullshit

Before i say anything, please keep in mind that i DO NOT condone in any way shape or form adults having sexual relations with children. Those people who engage in sexual acts with kids should be tortured in my opinion. My bitch about sex offenses is the extremely wide net they cast.

For example, if a man were to be caught banging a sheep, goat, horse or cow, he would have to register as a sex offender. This is bullshit!! Buggery does not an offender make!

If you look at the sex offender tracking list for Texas, it just gives a name and an address. How do you know if the criminal was with a person or an animal? Rhetorical question, you can't. This is why i think the sex offender reigistry is broken and should be fixed or done away with.

Being listed as a sex offender is too easy now a days. It has gotten to be as bad as drunk driving. Here is another example:

A bunch of guys went to Buffalo Wild Wings one Friday after work. Thye were having a few beers and the men's restroom had to be closed for a couple of hours. The line at the women's bathroom was very long so a guy goes in the alley behind a garbage dumpster to answer natures call. It was dark and he was concealing himself. A family walks by him and calls the cops. Because their was a small child with the family, his public indecency turns out to be a sex offense. Now he has to register as a sex offender. This is bullshit!!

This is exactly what happens when a society does away with common sense and adopts a ZERO Tolerance policy. People don't or can't make intelligent decisions so they defer to ZERO tolerance. This is bullshit!!

If a Boy Scout were to bring his Knife to school to show his friends and was caught with it, he would have to be expelled. Why? He meant no harm. He just wanted to show off his knife that he earned in the Boy Scouts. They would expel him because of the ZERO tolerance policy. So why can't the principal realize that there was no harm done and just talk to the kid?

The reason is because when Jamal brings a 9mm to school and threatens to kill someone, his mother will complain that little Boy Scout didn't get suspended so Jamal shouldn't get suspended as well. So, to avoid being called a racist, they suspend everyone. Zero tolerance is a copout for people who don't have any balls.

It is time for us to stand up and say enough! Let's do away with the stupid laws and pass real laws that make sense.

The Lawyer's Party

This is very interesting! I never thought about it this way. Perhaps this is why so many physicians are conservatives or republicans.The Democratic Party has become the Lawyers' Party.
* Barack Obama is a lawyer.
* Michelle Obama is a lawyer.
* Hillary Clinton is a lawyer.
* Bill Clinton is a lawyer.
* John Edwards is a lawyer.
* Elizabeth Edwards is a lawyer.
Every Democrat nominee since 1984 went to law school (although Gore did not graduate). (Gore may not have graduated from 1st Grade)
Every Democrat vice presidential nominee since 1976, except for Lloyd Bentsen, went to law school.
Look at leaders of the Democrat Party in Congress:
* Harry Reid is a lawyer.
* Nancy Pelosi is a lawyer.

The Republican Party is different.
* President Bush is a businessman.
* Vice President Cheney is a businessman.

The leaders of the Republican Revolution:
* Newt Gingrich was a history professor.
* Tom Delay was an exterminator.
* Dick Armey was an economist.
* House Minority Leader Boehner was a plastic manufacturer.
* The former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is a heart surgeon.

Who was the last Republican president who was a lawyer? Gerald Ford, who left office 31 years ago and who barely won the Republican nomination as a sitting president, running against Ronald Reagan in 1976. The Republican Party is made up of real people doing real work, who are often the targets of lawyers. The Democrat Party is made up of lawyers. Democrats mock and scorn men who create wealth, like Bush and Cheney, or who heal the sick, like Frist, or who immerse themselves in history, like Gingrich. The Lawyers' Party sees these sorts of people, who provide goods and services that people want, as the enemies of America . And, so we have seen the procession of official enemies, in the eyes of the Lawyers' Party, grow. Against whom do Hillary and Obama rail? Pharmaceutical companies, oil companies, hospitals, manufacturers, fast food restaurant chains, large retail businesses, bankers, and anyone producing anything of value in our nation. This is the natural consequence of viewing everything through the eyes of lawyers. Lawyers solve problems by successfully representing their clients, in this case the American people. Lawyers seek to have new laws passed, they seek to win lawsuits, they press appellate courts to overturn precedent, and lawyers always parse language to favor their side. Confined to the narrow practice of law, that is fine. But it is an awful way to govern a great nation. When politicians as lawyers begin to view some Americans as clients and other Americans as opposing parties, then the role of the leg al system in our life becomes all-consuming. Some Americans become "adverse parties" of our very government. We are not all litigants in some vast social class-action suit. We are citizens of a republic that promises us a great deal of freedom from laws, from courts, and from lawyers. Today, we are drowning in laws; we are contorted by judicial decisions; we are driven to distraction by omnipresent lawyers in all parts of our once private lives. America has a place for laws and lawyers, but that place is modest and reasonable, not vast and unchecked. When the most important decision for our next president is whom he will appoint to the Supreme Court, the role of lawyers and the law in America is too big. When lawyers use criminal prosecution as a continuation of politics by other means, as happened in the lynching of Scooter Libby and Tom Delay, then the power of lawyers in America is too great. When House Democrats sue America in order to hamstring our efforts to learn what our enemies are planning to ! do to us, then the role of litigation in America has become crushing. We cannot expect the Lawyers' Party to provide real change, real reform or real hope in America Most Americans know that a republic in which every major government action must be blessed by nine unelected judges is not what Washington intended in 1789. Most Americans grasp that we cannot fight a war when ACLU lawsuits snap at the heels of our defenders. Most Americans intuit that more lawyers and judges will not restore declining moral values or spark the spirit of enterprise in our economy.. Perhaps Americans will understand that change cannot be brought to our nation by those lawyers who already largely dictate American society and business. Perhaps Americans will see that hope does not come from the mouths of lawyers but from personal dreams nourished by hard work. Perhaps Americans will embrace the truth that more lawyers with more power will only make our problems worse. The United States has 5% of the world's population and 66% of the world's lawyers! Tort (Legal) reform legislation has been introduced in congress several times in the last several years to limit punitive damages in ridiculous lawsuits such as 'spilling hot coffee on yourself and suing the establishment that sold it to you' and also to limit punitive damages in huge medical malpractice lawsuits. This legislation has continually been blocked from even being voted on by the Democrat Party. When you see that 97% of the political contributions from the American Trial Lawyers Association goes to the Democrat Party, then you realize who is responsible for our medical and product costs being so high! Now which party is the party of the people?


Way down in Louisiana , Boudreaux’s old lady had been pregnant for some time and now the time had come. So he brought her to the doctor and the doctor began to deliver the baby.
She had a little boy and the doctor looked over at Boudreaux and said, “Hey, Boudreaux,you just had you-sef a son! Ain’t dat grand!”
Boudreaux got excited by dis, but just then the doctor spoke up and said, “Hold on! We ain’t finished yet!” The doctor then delivered a little girl. He said, “Hey, Boudreaux, you got you-sef a daughter too! She a pretty lil ting.”
Boudreaux got kind of puzzled by this and then the doctor said, “Hold on, we still ain’t got doneyet!”
The doctor then delivered another boy and said,”Boudreaux, you just had you-sef another boy!”
When Boudreaux and his wife went home with their 3 children, he sat down with his wife and said,“Mama, you remember dat night what we run out of Vaseline and we had to use dat dere Tree-in-One Oil?” His wife said, “Yeah, I do!”
Boudreaux said, “Man, it’s a damn good ting we didn’t use no WD-Forty.”

Sighting in my .50 BMG

A while back, my brother sent me some ballistic information for a .50 BMG. I went to the website, input the bullet information and it told me where the bullet should hit at defined ranges based on a 500 yard zero. All seemed right with the world.

When i was in Louisiana, we sighted the rifle at 25 yards. According to the charts, i should sight it 4" high at 25 yards and it should be dead on at 500 yards. We played around and got the windage perfect and then set the elevation. All seemed right with the world.

When i came back home to West Texas, a buddy of mine and myself went to his farm and stretched out 500 yards and set up a sheet of plywood as a target. First shot, nowhere on the target. Second shot, nowhere on the target. Something seemed amiss.

I moved up to the 200 yard mark and couldn't hit the target. I moved up to the 100 yard mark and the bullet was about 5 feet high. Just a wee bit off of what the ballistic calculator said it should be.

I zeroed it at 10" high at 100 yards and then moved back to the 500 yard range. The bullet was now on the target. Finally, $25 later no doubt. The wind picked up bad so we had to stop the shooting. I plan on going out to the range when the wind isn't blowing and zero it in tight at 500 yards. We were just fooling around and hit a 1" thick steel plate at 300 yards and put a hole in it with a FMJ. Very impressive.
