protein wisdom "Everybody knows that protein is one of the building blocks of life, and you will find no finer protein in the blogosphere than that produced at protein wisdom" -- Bill Quick, Daily Pundit

"It's a real shame," Briscoe commented, "We were both out there trying to win the Indy 500 today and, when it's time to go, we have to go. But, from what I can see, there was still plenty of room on the right side for her to get around.
"There are people pointing fingers, but that's not the way we are. We both have a brake pedal in our cars and, from what I can tell, there was still plenty of room for her to get around me. I was trying to get around Wheldon, and I was staying in the middle lane. I got ran up in the back, and it's a shame."
I've watched this shunt several times and Danica had absolutely no where to go. She had already swung so far right she almost kissed the wall. Briscoe absolutely and definitely fucked up. I wish she hadn't been stopped from clocking him.
ADDED: I think what I'm saying is that Briscoe should just man-up and accept responsibility.
Instead of saying "whether you're on the side of the gun lobby," Rendell should have said "whether you're on the side of the criminal and the courts, prosecutors, prisons and parole boards that cut soft deals with criminals and release them to prey upon police officers and law-abiding citizens."
RTWT. Blaming the Gun Lobby and guns for crime is a waste of time and effort. And if you can't even enforce the gun laws you do have of what use is another??
Most of the great problems we face are caused by politicians creating solutions to problems they created in the first place. Politicians and a large percentage of the public lose sight of the unavoidable fact that for every created benefit, there's also a created cost or, as Nobel Laureate Milton Friedman put it, "There's no free lunch."
All of us indeed. How many law-abiding gun owners are killing cops? Or launching murderous killing sprees? Breaking into homes and terrorizing the residents? I just want to know, Jill Porter, just what is it that frightens you about my guns?
