Baby Got Heat

In about 15 years he’ll be allowed to get a driving permit.

In about 17 he’ll be able to join the military (though he'll be marketed in about a dozen)
.

In about 17 he'll also be allowed to vote.

In about 20 he’ll be allowed to drink alcohol legally.

In about 24 he’ll be allowed to rent a car.

But little Baby Bubba already
has a gun license, as there are no age restrictions on gun licenses in Illinois.

Bubba is 10 months old, in case you were wondering. Is it any surprise we readily give guns to unstable people prone to massacre others if we'll give them to an infant?

If, by now, you don't realize the United States is dominated by misguided gun nuts, you are clearly in a vegetative state.

And if you don't believe there's an unjustifiable disconnect between age-determined rights, responsibilities and privileges in this country, you are nuts.

We are in dire need of a new Constitutional Amendment mandating intelligence and reason in our laws. There's certainly very little right now.

Who are you going to find to enforce that amendment? Congress can't do it, those with intelligence have no reason. Dubya.. HA HA!

Nice idea, but I think there are only about 12 qualified people in the world!

Pete Bogs said...

yeah, I just thought I could lean on it the way Second Amendment slaves do when something important comes up... say "it's my constitutional right" to have it this way...

I can dream, can't I?

but godammnit bogs - if i want my baby to tote a gun, by god, i'll have my baby toting a gun.

if the guvmint is gonna force me to have a baby, at least i can have a baby with a gun!!!!

hah! the anonomaly (look - it's my constitutional right to spell words wrong) is hysterical - but it is just that, an anomaly (better?). how many babies actually own guns?

i think i must be cracking up - i may be losing my liberal stripes - but really, if EXISTING gun restriction laws were enforced - we might not have such a problem as we do.

bang-bang and shoot 'em up!

Pete Bogs said...

bird - existing gun laws are not reasonable... who needs assault weapons? who needs weapons without a waiting period? who needs a gun in their fucking diapers? madness, I tell you... madness...

Bird said...

but bogs - without those guns (especially the assault weapons),what will happen if there is a "red dawn" scenario? patrick swayze will be backed into a corner, unable to defend us (yet certainly capable of executing a few dance steps sans all those weapons...)

and if a gun-toting baby had been on campus at V-Tech - c'mon - problem solved.

seriously, i thought we had waiting periods, background checks, etc. those are the things we need to enforce. and in some places those kevlar tipped bullets are banned, - aren't assault weapons as well in some states?

i need an assalt rifle. and mirror sunglasses. and some of those neat-o camo pants with all the pockets and shiite. and some beenie weenie for my hole in the ground.

in case Iran decides to push the button down

grrrhahaha

bird - Wolverines!!!

there are waiting periods and background checks, but surely you've heard of these "gun show loopholes?" just wait for the next convention if you want guns hassle-free...

I'm not sure about state bans on assault weapons, but I'm also not interested... a federal ban is the only thing that makes sense... we just had a 10-year ban... why? will the guns become less dangerous after a decade? we need a permanent ban... assault weapons are for military use only...

she - funny you should say that... I am wearing camo shorts tonight to the Roger Waters concert...

Fagen's awesome... "I hear you're mad about Kubrick (sic)... I like your eyes, I like him, too..."

A swimmer whose clothing was strewed
By winds that left her quite nude
Saw a man stroll along
And unless we are wrong
You expected this line to be lewd!

Hey Puddin' I'se home again and invitin' ya to the Front Porch Limerick Contest--you bein' a writer an' all. Why, Bawgs, they's even a prize.

Aunty Belle said...

Oh, an iffin' I does make it to the gator hole, I guess we'll know who is who, huh? You'll be the one wif the Guinness an' I'll be the Granny Clampet look-a-like. Hoo-whee!!

Pete Bogs said...

she - got it, thanks...

the show was really good... he's assembled an incredible band... played 95% Floyd stuff... very hi-tech lights and sound...

she said...

great!

have you ever seen david gilmore live? i wonder how the two pink floyds would compare.

Pete Bogs said...

saw Floyd live in '87... 3/4 of the band w/o Waters... this concert completed the deal for me... I've now seen the entire band, in two pieces, spread out across 20 years...

Sanford B. Hines said...

Floyd sucks ass.

Genesis with Phil is the best!

Phil, Phil, Phil!

ahahaaa, ahahaaaa, ahahaaaoyyyy

:)

I'm teasing~

Pete Bogs said...

mayden - bring it... a great conversation piece! ;-)

just poking thru ... oh this is old but its so brilliant ... i hadda put my two cents' worth in here.

well, i personally think the only time one has need for any sort of assault weapons is if they live in rural africa (you know, like the jungle), say ... botswana ... out in the bush ... and some dude comes absustin' thru your door. that's when one of those comes on handy. otherwise ... perhaps we oughta find some other, less harmful way to get ourselves that power/domination orgasm guns seem to give some of us.
