Follow up to the story is that because of the nature of the video going viral in record speed, the kid stands to profit as much as $250k from this by way of ads and endorsements. Sh*t, I need Mac to kick me in the head real bad as I need some money!

I wasn’t sure where to put this… Fail, Guns, Politics…

Yes, he said these words...

Joe the Plumber: "Your Dead Kids Don’t Trump My Constitutional Rights"



Quote
Joe the Plumber is an idiot. But in his latest idiocy—a crass dance on the graves of the just-murdered mass-shooting victims in Isla Vista—he teaches us all an important lesson about exactly how conservative thought on individual rights has shifted in recent years.

Joe, whose real name is Samuel Wurzelbacher, inexplicably became famous as the moron who "stood up" to candidate Barack Obama in 2008, and he's since made some money as a failed Tea Party congressional candidate and talk-radio ranter. Continuing his tradition of providing answers to questions no one ****ing asked him, Joe decided to post an open letter to the families of victims killed in Elliot Rodger's murder-suicide rampage over the weekend. Just the victims who were shot, though; not the ones who were stabbed.

His message of hope and love: Stay the **** away from my guns.

    I am sorry you lost your child. I myself have a son and daughter and the one thing I never want to go through, is what you are going through now. But:

    As harsh as this sounds – your dead kids don't trump my Constitutional rights.

    Richard Martinez, whose son (Christopher) was among the murdered, choked back tears at a news conference, blaming politicians the next day: "The talk about gun rights. What about Chris' right to live?" Martinez said – and much more...

    But the words and images of Mr. Martinez blaming "the proliferation of guns", lobbyists, politicians, etc.; will be exploited by gun-grab extremists as are all tragedies involving gun violence and the mentally ill by the anti-Second Amendment Left...

    We still have the Right to Bear Arms and I intend to continue to speak out for that right, and against those who would restrict it – even in the face of this horrible incident by this sad and insane individual. I almost said "Obama Voter" but I'm waiting for it to be official...

    In conclusion, I cannot begin to imagine the pain you are going through, having had your child taken away from you. However, any feelings you have toward my rights being taken away from me, lose those.


There's something refreshingly honest in Joe's acknowledgement that this tragedy is all about him. It's the reductio ad absurdum of an ethos that's obsessed with the self and the self's freedom without a concomitant empathy for other selves and their freedoms. Joe's rant illuminates quite starkly how the right-libertarian absolutist interpretation of individual rights comes into direct conflict with the lives of his fellow countrymen and their children. To talk of responsibilities is to water down a right, and we cannot do that, no matter what the cost! (On the other hand: "They talk about gun rights," Martinez said in his stirring press statement about his son. "What about Chris's right to live?")
Father of UCSB Shooting Victim: "When Will This Insanity Stop?"

Richard Martinez, the father of 20-year-old UCSB shooting victim Christopher Martinez, gave a… Read more

It's part of a larger move in conservatism away from appeals to the common good and toward an antipathy for anything but the self. Where conservatives used to justify the free market, for example, in Adam Smith's practical terms—the invisible hand provides for all, a rising tide floats every boat—they now rationalize it in Ayn Rand's fundamentalist terms: Who gives a **** if the market is good or just? It's right. Now get the **** out of our way, you illogical bromide-hawking self sacrificer.

Likewise for gun rights, where conservatives led by lobbyists and luddites like Joe the Plumber have abandoned talk about the good and replaced it with talk about the right. The good can be negotiated as hard cases arise. The right is non-negotiable. It is immutable. It is either respected or infringed. If you believe, as Joe and the NRA do, that the Second Amendment is an absolute right to personal firearms ownership—not merely that it's good for something, like self-defense or recreation, but that it's an immutable right—then even background checks or limits on multiple-magazine purchases or just simply talking about compromise and offering real sympathy to survivors is an infringement on that right.

In this ideology, talk of social responsibility in the exercise of rights becomes synonymous with socialism. This is the ultimate problem with the modern movement that clubbed traditional conservatism to death, squeezed into its clothes, and now traipses around like it owns the place.

Even if you believe that a discussion of social responsibilities is the same thing as socialism—and frankly, only an ignoramus could—you can't fight socialism by becoming a sociopath.

As someone so sarcastically said, "hey they just posted a judges announcement for retirement"

Now, that is funny.

‘Let’s go out back and I’ll beat your ass’: Florida judge allegedly attacks lawyer outside courtroom

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOmzSmHwb3Y

Quote
Talk about the strong arm of the law!

A Florida judge allegedly punched a public defender after the two stepped outside the courtroom to settle a beef.

The brawl erupted after Judge John Murphy began to argue with the lawyer, Andrew Weinstock, in a Brevard County courtroom just outside of Orlando on Monday.

“You know, if I had a rock, I would throw it at you right now,” Murphy is heard telling the attorney in a video recording of the spat, which aired on WFTV.

“Stop p---ing me off. Just sit down.”

But Weinstock — who felt he was being pressured to talk his client into waiving his right to a speedy trial — barked back at the angry judge.

“You know I’m the public defender,” Weinstock said. “I have the right to be here and I have a right to stand and represent my client.”

That’s when Murphy asked the lawyer if he wanted to settle the matter with their fists.

“If you want to fight, let’s go out back and I’ll just beat your ass,” he told Weinstock.

The lawyer can be seen in the video apparently following Murphy out of the courtroom before the sounds of a scuffle can be heard off camera.

 “The attorney said that immediately upon entering the hallway, he was grabbed by the collar and began to be struck,” Blaise Trettis, public defender of the 18th Judicial Court, told WFTV.

“There was no discussion, no talk, not even time for anything. Just as soon as they’re in the hallway, the attorney was grabbed.”

Murphy punched Weinstock in the face before a pair of deputies broke up the fight. The lawyer was reassigned to another area to avoid another confrontation.

He later declined to press charges. But legal experts said the two men could still face disciplinary action.

One witness told WKMG-TV that the argument escalated because Weinstock acted "exteremely rude."

People inside the courtroom applauded the judge as he returned to the bench.

“I will catch my breath eventually,” Murphy told the courtroom. “Man, I’m an old man.”

I always find it humorous that chicks will do the 'duckface' and think THAT is hot. It just makes them look even dumber than they are.

Wow

Just wow

Is this the world's dumbest criminal? Minnesota man logs onto Facebook during burglary (has video)



 First the burglar failed to log out of Facebook after checking his profile on the homeowner's computer. Then he agreed to meet up with homeowner James Wood in an effort to get back wet clothes he'd left behind.

Crook caught by leaving facebook profile open
Wood tells WCCO-TV (http://j.mp/1pO1meq) the burglar has to be the "world's dumbest criminal."

South St. Paul police say the burglar took credit cards, cash and a watch last week.

Wood posted his phone number on the burglar's Facebook page, hoping someone would call.

The burglar himself texted Wood and agreed to meet with the homeowner, thinking he could negotiate for his clothes. When Wood spotted the burglar, he recognized him from Facebook and called police.
