Bu-bu-but guns never solve anything!

(Via the Drudge Report)

One of the many whines of the leftist gun grabbers is that violence/guns/whatever it is they don't like this week never solves anything.  The Sheriff of Butler County, Ohio begs to differ.

"There's a massive amount of employees that are not certified law enforcement officers that could be construed as a part of law enforcement," Craft said.

Those Butler County Sheriff's Office employees, such as administrative assistants, clerks and dispatchers, along with volunteers like citizens on patrol, have all been given the green light to carry their weapons to work as long as they have a valid concealed carry weapons license.

"They do a great service for this community and some of them are scared, and they've asked can they carry a concealed weapon," Craft said.

Their concern was taken seriously. In a memo sent to staff, Sheriff Richard Jones granted their request effective immediately.

Great Bleeding Ghu, an elected official with some common sense!  Quick, I don't care what party the man is, let's see if he'll run for President!

A triumph of socialism

(Via the Drudge Report)

Grocery shopping in Venezuela, er, Columbia.

I remember a class I took, probably 15 years ago now, with an instructor who was married to a Venezuelan lady.  He loved the country.  They spent 6 months of the year there and 6 months in the us.  We ate lunch together 4 out of the 5 days (we were the same age, that is to say 20 years older than the rest of the class) and he told me all the great points about living in Venezuela.

I hope he and his wife were able to get back to the US to wait out the decline and eventual fall in Venezuela.  It's simply instructive for a cold-hearted bastard like me, but for someone who has skin in the game, it's got to be agonizing.

And we should all remember, this doesn't just happen in small countries.  It can happen anywhere.  Even here.

Checked your pantry lately?

In case your nose hasn't been rubbed in it enough

It's not about guns, it's about control, part 1,456.  But very well done and some good quotes you can use to snag people for our side.
