Read, think, compare and contrast carefully, Newsman:
Because we are the government.
with:
government of the people, by the people, and for the people

Because we are the government is more like people of the government, by the government, and for the government?

I am strongly advised against mentioning the name of the company or people with whom I work when posting to the internet, lest I create a bad impression of my company or associates.

I'd strongly advise Althouse Inc. to consider a similar policy.

So, the question on everyone's mind: is big man Meade going to the rally on Saturday, or what?

Also, I need to thank Jason for linking to the "pick songs" thread on Facebook, which is by far the greatest thing I have seen online this week.

My pleasure. The other great thing about Isthmus Beer & Cheese Fest: It's a Montgomery Gentry-free zone.

Here's a gem:

Let it be known, however, The execution of infringing on our Second Amendment Rights and laws on our elected and non-elected servants is considered VIOLENCE against my God, who endowed my fellow countrymen with the unalienable Right to Keep and bear arms and ordained them as His rulers


So now God gave us the right to have guns. Well, case closed I guess.

God's weapon of choice was the jawbone of an ass.

I know about Kodachrome, but not sure about those two.

I'm trying to figure out who the "them" in that last sentence refers to. Is it "arms" or "my fellow countrymen" or "our elected and non-elected servants" or is it something else?

If it's "my fellow countrymen", then I'd just point out that God's ordained rulers chose Barack Obama twice to lead the country.

And God's ordained rulers also support many restrictions on firearms, by wide margins.

Uh oh!

As many as 4,200 We Energies customers have lost electricity in Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood, according to the company.

An outage was reported about 11:15 a.m. and a second was reported just after noon, company spokesman Brian Manthey said.

Crews haven't reported a cause for the outage, but Manthey noted winds were expected to be strong Friday, which could cause problems with power lines.

This has been a big topic of discussion:

1>I will not open carry. I think any open carry will just provide fodder for those wanting to make us look bad. I understand the desire to open carry but at this point, I think it will make things worse.


Pussy. Show us your true colors.

I'd just be happy if the writer was consistent in his or her use of capitalization. Also, correct me if i'm wrong, but aren't the "unalienable" rights, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness (or property if you happen to think Locke was right)? Maybe the right to bear arms is only granted if you used to be an alien and are un-aliened?
