TWW is The Warped Woodturner who is a local artist living in a suburb of Springbrook, WI (pop 87). His mission is to use a wood lathe to make interesting but mostly useless objects from locally-sequestered carbon for tourists to bring back to the city to give to people they had to buy something for but don't like that well. His target market is the senior citizens since their vision is not as good as it used to be so cannot see the defects as well.

enough is enough (defined as what?) -- soapbox of the day

"WASHINGTON -- After a shooting Friday at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, President Obama once again called for tighter gun control.
The president said, "...We have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough." "

Enough of what? Enough BS? What we really need is an analysis of possible solutions that is objective. But that would be common sense which almost all of the entire gun debate lacks. 


Here are two articles attempting to do some of what is missing: 


"For now, the bottom line is this: large-capacity magazines do not lead to higher casualty counts in mass shootingsIt is the desire of the perpetrator to shoot a lot of people leads to higher casualty counts. The choice of a large-capacity magazine may reflect that desire, but it does not seem to facilitate its realization. Lacking large-capacity magazines, the shooters could realize their evil intentions with other widely available means."



"In the end, my point concerning violence broadly and gun violence in particular is the need for specificity over generality. Although we need to have some definition of violence to create a horizon for our disciplined study of the phenomenon, I do believe that fundamentally there is no such thing as gun violence in general. There are specific acts of violence involving guns with specific phenomenologies, etiologies, and outcomes."


Both of the quotes are from David Yamane who is a sociologist.  

The big gorilla in the room is time. Society can give someone permission to get a gun (said to upset the gun people) but how do people know some time in the future the person will not do  something bad with it. It  could be years.  Be watchful for news stories saying the guy in Colorado Springs bought all of this guns legally. If this is true what does it mean about common sense gun regulations?

political thought for the day

White men are the face of terror: Race, Donald Trump, Fox News and the real story of the Minneapolis #blacklivesmatter shooting

Will Donnie the Demagogue put Hillary the Horrible into the White House if he does not get the Republican nomination and and claims victim status saying he was not treated fairly and runs as an independent?

mystery solved

 


The Chinese do not have boots on the ground like Carson first claimed. He meant to say 'sandals' like all the people in Asia must wear.

Source of picture:  https://www.facebook.com/realbencarson/photos/a.143829065783568.1073741825.138691142964027/555567407943063/?type=3&theater


And here is the mainstream media version of the truth: http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/white-house-fact-checks-ben-carson-claims-chinese/story?id=35183114

And more 'proof' from somebody TWW has never heard of fro a few year back:

"Special Report
Chinese Radars in Syria
Sean O’Connor

 As the Syrian crisis continues, new evidence is suggesting a far greater amount of Chinese military assistance to the Assad regime than previously believed. Imagery analysis reveals the presence of Type 120, JYL-1, and JY-27 (GREAT WALL) radar systems at various EW complexes in Syria. The radars are present in imagery dating as far back as 2009. Given that the current crisis in Syria developed in late 2011, the new identification of Chinese military equipment does not represent overt Chinese support of the Assad regime. While China does not support Western initiatives regarding the crisis, it is imperative to note that the 2009 or earlier delivery timeline predates the situation and is indicative only of an import-export relation between the two states."

One thing Hillary does not have to worry about


It is sex education time for TWW. When he heard about the laws against taking pictures up women's skirts he could never make sense of them. Now the next time he sees someone carrying a plastic box in a store he will pay more attention and be sure his fly is zipped up. 

Question: what is the cure for Trumpf?

"In one of the more bizarre speeches that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has delivered this campaign season, Trump went on a rant that lasted more than ten minutes on new frontrunner, retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson. Here in Fort Dodge, Iowa, he accused Carson of being a liar and once again, as he did earlier in the day on CNN, likened Carson to a child molester with a pathological disease.

"There's no cure for that," Trump said."

When does the media start calling Mein Trumpf racist?

white privelege not in Missouri but rather in Yale - can you tell the difference?

"They thought their request for an apology ought to have been sufficient to secure one. Who taught them that it is righteous to pillory faculty for failing to validate their feelings, as if disagreement is tantamount to disrespect? Their mindset is anti-diversity, anti-pluralism, and anti-tolerance, a seeming data-point in favor of April Kelly-Woessner’s provocative argument that “young people today are less politically tolerant than their parents’ generation.” "

This is talking about the student reaction to an e-mail about Halloween costumes but sure sounds similar to the student demands in MO. The only difference is some of the students in Missouri were actually victims but what difference should reality make to the elite college students.

More where does truth lie? (copied from Carson's Facebook page)

Here is an interview my mother did in Parade Magazine on May 11, 1997. Did CNN do any research at all?





TWW says: The real scandal here is how he conned his mother into lying for him in the Parade interview. 

TWW acknowledges his white male privilege but refuses to quit

"Concerned Student 1950 has demanded, among other things, that Wolfe "acknowledge his white male privilege," that he be removed immediately, and that the school adopt a mandatory racial-awareness program and hire more black faculty and staff."

source: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/support-leaps-for-univ-of-missouri-student-activists/

So what are the protesters going to do now?  Holding one's breath until one turns blue does not work well for people in minority groups.  Is not turning blue when some people cannot an example of white privilege?

Great news for gun makers -- as heard on CBS

Don't buy all the BS from the second amendment fanatics.  Smart guns are good for the gun industry.

The anti-gun Violence Policy Center said this in a background report: 

"Would smart guns entice individuals who otherwise wouldn’t buy a gun to bring a weapon
into their home?

Making smart guns available could increase the chances of selling guns to Americans who
currently do not own them. A March 1997 survey conducted by the National Opinion Research
Center found that, of respondents who were “unlikely to buy a gun in the future,” 35 percent
would “consider buying a handgun that would only fire for the owner of the gun.” Packaged
with a strong sales pitch, the technology could penetrate new markets for a gun industry that is
facing long-term declines in household and personal gun ownership, putting more families at risk
from the well-documented hazards that accompany bringing a gun into a previously gun-free
home."

And always remember more guns means less crime.

Whats next? Global warming deniers will be called commies

"Russia's official view appears to have changed little since 2003, when Putin told an international climate conference that warmer temperatures would mean Russians "spend less on fur coats" while "agricultural specialists say our grain production will increase, and thank God for that".
The president believes that "there is no global warming, that this is a fraud to restrain the industrial development of several countries including Russia," says Stanislav Belkovsky, a political analyst and critic of Putin. "That is why this subject is not topical for the majority of the Russian mass media and society in general." "
