SECOND AMENDMENT REMEDIES  2:00 pm June 28, 2012

Michigan Republicans’ Ex-Spokesman Wants You To Shoot The Government For Giving You Health Care

by Jeff Wattrick

Remember when your neighbors used to laugh at you for hoarding survival seed kits and gold coins lo these many years? Well, you’re about to get the last laugh because while they’re stuck living under the iron boot of Saul Alinsky John Roberts’ socialist regime like sheeple, you are locked, loaded, and ready for revolution. And today that revolution is upon us.

Now that poors can get health insurance because the demon Supreme Court sided with that commie muslin NOBAMA fella, the only way to defend our freedom is armed insurrection! Mount up and ride to the sound of the gun says former Michigan Republican Party spokesman Matthew Davis.

Matthew Davis, an attorney in Lansing, sent the email moments after the Supreme Court ruling to numerous new media outlets and limited government activists with the headline: “Is Armed Rebellion Now Justified?”

Davis added his own personal note saying, “… here’s my response. And yes, I mean it.”

“There are times government has to do things to get what it wants and holds a gun to your head,” Davis said. “I’m saying at some point, we have to ask the question when do we turn that gun around and say no and resist.

If you have an Obama sticker on your car, you maybe want to avoid the local Wal-Mart or Bob Evans parking lots for a few days. Clearly, this health care thing has angered up the rustics something fierce. [Michigan Capitol Confidential]

Hey Ma, get the shotgun. Dude coming up the road gots a stethoscope.

Hey Ma! There's another one sneakin' up behind you with an endoscope!

Extemporanus June 28, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Careful…Ol' Doc McCoy gots himself a powerful temper.

'Member what happened to yer poor Cousin Red when he found out he ain't got the health insurance?

PEW! PEW!

actor212 June 28, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Red gots a ray gun????

Extemporanus June 28, 2012 at 2:50 pm

That is highly illogical, y'all.

GALLUP! GALLUP!

Ryy June 28, 2012 at 2:04 pm

I hope to god some of these righties start resisting ASAP. I suggest a full armed assault in Tampa. Freedom! Constitution! Kenya!

Terry June 28, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Oh, I hope Tampa is a seriously hot mess. Every frickin GOP and Teabagger malfunction needs to be right up in the open and fighting for attention.

scvirginia June 28, 2012 at 2:21 pm

Staind yer grownd!

actor212 June 28, 2012 at 2:22 pm

I think the SCOTUS guaranteed that today. The large issue that Teabaggers have been up in arms about has been "Obamacare" and that the Supreme Court, with a conservative CJ assenting, affirmed the decision is going to see Tampa make Chicago '68 look like Woodstock

Terry June 28, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Fire hoses versus Rascal scooters?

actor212 June 28, 2012 at 2:28 pm

THE WHOLE WORLD'S IGNORING! THE WHOLE WORLD'S IGNORING! THE WHOLE WORLD'S IGNORING!

Ryy June 28, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Please god let that happen. Just once. Please.

randcoolcatdaddy June 28, 2012 at 2:53 pm

NRA written Florida gun laws, Teabaggers with guns, and the high emotions from the court decision are not a good mix.

scvirginia June 28, 2012 at 3:01 pm

Meh- they'll prolly jus' string up an Obama effigy- they can borrow Pastor Terry's- & sit around the burning crosses toasting marshmallows & swappin' lies…

HeyTampa, get your tactical nukes here.

MittBorg June 28, 2012 at 2:54 pm

Oh, honey, they are DEFINITELY having a shootout at the Tampa corral. Take my word for it. The RonPaulTradz will show up armed and ready to take over the convention, the Republicans will resist, and when the smoke clears, the crying will begin. I want to say something cruel, but I really do believe it's gonna be bad, and I don't have it in me to wish death and suffering on a bunch of people I disagree with about politics.

miss_grundy June 28, 2012 at 6:58 pm

Well, I do. I not only wish death and suffering on them but public humiliation as well. If they shoot each other or other people, then perhaps the greater number of voters, who until now have not been interested in the election, will see these jerks in action and decide to vote Democrat.

So, party down congenital nincompoops! Show everyone how stupid you all are!

actor212 June 28, 2012 at 2:05 pm

Just. Bring. It. Bitches.

stroge June 28, 2012 at 3:24 pm

oh fuck yea. white conservative men aren't the only people with guns or the desire to beat the shit outta somebody for being a dumbass.

PhilippePetain June 28, 2012 at 3:55 pm

Concur. We've got the cities, the smarts, and the numbers. Oh, and teeth. And we don't have to drive little scooters to move.

That can't happen here, I bought cuss insurance

Lionel[redacted]Esq June 28, 2012 at 2:08 pm

Well, you had to, or you would be taxed.

Jus_Wonderin June 28, 2012 at 2:21 pm

Does Rosetta Stone teach curse words?

DemmeFatale June 28, 2012 at 2:37 pm

Wonkette is special that way, isn't it?

CapeClod June 28, 2012 at 2:53 pm

That's why shooting people who don't agree with you is the only rational thing to do.

Negropolis June 29, 2012 at 2:17 am

That's the beautiful thing about the English language. It's so easy to make up new words.

Callyson June 28, 2012 at 2:06 pm

“You can’t have people walking with lattes and signs and think the object of your opposition is going to take you seriously,” Davis said.

Um, what? Since when do wingnuts drink lattes? I thought only commie socialist liberals drank those fancy schmancy drinks, while real Americans drink instant…

GhostBuggy June 28, 2012 at 2:25 pm

I would drink Postum (if they still made it). I'm not sure where that puts me, politically.

BaldarTCrabass June 28, 2012 at 2:28 pm

They really should be drinking Moxie.

actor212 June 28, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Put up or shut up

miss_grundy June 28, 2012 at 7:00 pm

Do Mormons drink this stuff? Aren't they against caffeine?

emmelemm June 28, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Sanka!!

Poindexter718 June 28, 2012 at 2:53 pm

Since when do wingnuts drink lattes?, you ask.
Since Dunkin Donuts started selling giant milk shake versions of them with unlimited Splenda.

MittBorg June 28, 2012 at 2:55 pm

Nescafe?

Mittens Howell, III June 28, 2012 at 2:06 pm

Bath Salt conservatives are really losing their shit today.

MittBorg June 28, 2012 at 2:57 pm

They've hacked John Roberts' page on Wikipedia. The names they're calling the guy! Just this morning, he was a brilliant legal scholar who was leading them to the Promised Land. Now he's a slimy coward who has sold out to support a UNCONstee-TOO-shun-al ruling.

BaldarTCrabass June 28, 2012 at 3:00 pm

Seems old horsey-face called this one years ago. http://www.buzzfeed.com/rosiegray/ann-coulter-saw

MittBorg June 28, 2012 at 3:07 pm

Easy call. Her parting comment to BuzzFeed was "Always trust Ann Coulter."

I'd rather trust a rabid baboon.

Negropolis June 29, 2012 at 2:18 am

Oh, that's good, real gud. Bath Salt conservatives/Republicans, FTW.

Lionel[redacted]Esq June 28, 2012 at 2:06 pm

I think we can all recall the fact that the Founders decided to revolt against Great Britain when the British decided to impose health care on the colonies.

Prolly 'cause he don't have a leg to stand on.

James Michael Curley June 28, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Only a few years ago a public statement would have him upfront the bar in 21 days fighting against a 6 or 12 month suspension.

Dumbedup June 28, 2012 at 2:29 pm

that occurred to me too, isn't armed rebellion a violation of the professions rules? No screwing clients, no stealing and no armed rebellion!

Chichikovovich June 28, 2012 at 3:20 pm

And the third one has even been (up to now) generally obeyed by the legal profession (outside the Treason-in-Defense-of-Slavery states).

MittBorg June 28, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Encouraging OTHERS to take up arms for change in America. But he'll defend them on any charges, after they're arrested. Hey, ten per cent off, what more d'ya want?

Mrs. weejee informs me that all of our splurge gunz are fully loaded with slightly rancid whipped cream. We're ready!

our splurge gunz are fully loaded with slightly rancid whipped cream

Is that what the kids are calling it these days?

We're stodgy traditionalists what can I say?

scvirginia June 28, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Dude, that is super scary- don't point that thing over here!

Terry June 28, 2012 at 2:17 pm

I have dozens of rotten eggs and live on an upper floor of a high rise. I'm ready for a fun time.

actor212 June 28, 2012 at 2:27 pm

I've got fresh cream in mine!

Wait. What's a splurge gun?

weejee June 28, 2012 at 2:39 pm

Rent "Bugsy Malone," a pie-in-the-eye gangstah movie.

starfanglednut June 28, 2012 at 7:42 pm

Oh, just get in your bunk already.

Monsieur_Grumpe June 28, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Kinky.

Chick-Fil-Atheist™ June 28, 2012 at 2:08 pm

From the asshole's email: "In 2008, we the people elected Barack Obama as president, and the 100-year progressive trek to tyranny begun in 1912 with Woodrow Wilson's election was complete."

Yup. Especially the Reagan-Bush-Bush contributions toward a fascist, illiterate society.

MacRaith June 28, 2012 at 2:19 pm

Um, if we completed it in 2008, that would be a 96-year trek towards tyranny. Math is one of those liberal things, I guess.

actor212 June 28, 2012 at 2:23 pm

96, 100, stop being such a liberal, K?

scvirginia June 28, 2012 at 2:26 pm

He prolly meant that the Elders of Zion were already planning the Obama presidency back in 1908.

Tyrannically_Joe June 28, 2012 at 2:37 pm

Yeah, I could totally see Woodrow Wilson being a fan of a black guy being in the White House.

Lionel[redacted]Esq June 28, 2012 at 2:08 pm

Daddy's rifle in my hand
felt reassurin'
He told me,
Health care means run, son,
numbers add up to nothin'
But when the first shot
hit the docks I saw it comin'
Raised my rifle to my eye
Never stopped to wonder why.
Then I saw black,
And my face splashed in the sky.

prommie June 28, 2012 at 2:19 pm

Powderfinger? I should just google, I know.

Lionel[redacted]Esq June 28, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Yes, Powderfinger. It just seemed to fit.

Ryy June 28, 2012 at 2:41 pm

It did indeed fit

prommie June 28, 2012 at 2:48 pm

I thought so too.

CivicHoliday June 28, 2012 at 2:09 pm

Awww shit, I am SO getting keyed at work today

Chick-Fil-Atheist™ June 28, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Park across the street. The walk will be good for you.

James Michael Curley June 28, 2012 at 2:27 pm

I'm worried about my car with the big Obama Forward sticker getting keyed in the parking lot in white bread suburban NJ.

AbandonHope June 28, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Buy a bunch of Obama stickers and put them on random Republican cars.

actor212 June 28, 2012 at 2:53 pm

This is so beautifully subversive, I want to have sex with it.

James Michael Curley June 28, 2012 at 5:53 pm

Sounds like a plan. I already have dozens of the ones they send when you respond to a poll or send in a donation.

Jadetiger79 June 29, 2012 at 1:37 am

Do eeeeeeeet!

MittBorg June 28, 2012 at 7:45 pm

Brilliant! Simply brilliant! (rushes off to put scheme in action)

Jus_Wonderin June 28, 2012 at 2:39 pm

I have lately thought of putting quite a few Obama signs on my car, then parking it at Walmart….with a hidden camera inside.

James Michael Curley June 28, 2012 at 5:52 pm

In Middlesex county NJ’s Wal-Mart it would probably not faze anyone. Six miles south in Monmouth County all the Wal-Martians would get the vapors and keel over.

Jus_Wonderin June 28, 2012 at 5:56 pm

Well, this is Texas. So I have my choice of Wal-Marts north, south, east and west. Seriously though, I get a bazillion YouTube hits if I could get footage of someone taking their Obamarage out on my (paid for) car.

MittBorg June 28, 2012 at 7:46 pm

Ooh, nice idea!

Lionel[redacted]Esq June 28, 2012 at 2:46 pm

Sorry. When I first read your post, I was hoping that was a sexual euphemism.

Jus_Wonderin June 28, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Hey, I bet it could be if the Obama Forward is on his butt.

Chick-Fil-Atheist™ June 28, 2012 at 2:09 pm

Also, is there a liberal arms group? I'll buy a fucking gun and become a lifetime member tout suite if there is… and learn how to shoot it, of course.

Callyson June 28, 2012 at 2:12 pm

I'm going to have to check this one out:

http://www.theliberalgunclub.com/

(Usual disclaimer, in a totally non – violent way etc.)

Chick-Fil-Atheist™ June 28, 2012 at 2:17 pm

Yeah, I just googled. And $25 per month is a bit tight for me… but I guess that's the new paradigm, ennit…?

I can't wait until I buy a fifty cal and show up at Knob Creek in Kentucky… with my Obama sticker. YEEEE-HAAAAAW!!!!

Estproph June 28, 2012 at 2:28 pm

So these fuckers are threatening to kill American cops and soldiers now? When are we allowed to call them traitors?

Mittens Howell, III June 28, 2012 at 2:13 pm

When they register as Democrats. Apparently.

MacRaith June 28, 2012 at 2:13 pm

Oh, you can call them traitors any time – it's your First Amendment right. But now you can call them traitors and have the facts on your side too.

scvirginia June 28, 2012 at 2:16 pm

I hope this link works- it should take you to a Mark Fiore cartoon: http://www.sfgate.com/columnists/fiore/#item-9516

miss_grundy June 28, 2012 at 7:17 pm

Thanks for the link, great cartoons!

Negropolis June 29, 2012 at 2:21 am

I got a head start. I've been calling them traitors for years, especially after 9/11.

Schmannnity June 28, 2012 at 2:10 pm

Matt Davis? Great, great grandfather Jefferson would be proud.

edgydrifter June 28, 2012 at 2:11 pm

Blah blah chest-thumping blah. These overfed Wolverine-wannabes talk a big game, but I haven't seen many of them eager to actually take the field. Either shut up and fight, or just shut up. In any case, shut up. I'm looking at you, too, Texas.

actor212 June 28, 2012 at 2:20 pm

That works both ways. After all, Alec Baldwin didn't move to Canada after Bush won re-election

TribecaMike June 28, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Most of Baldwin's movies are probably filmed in Vancouver, so he's halfway there already.

Chick-Fil-Atheist™ June 28, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Yes, it is funny to consider how the world's greatest volunteer army — the private gun owners of Amercia — is made up of untrained civilians…

No digital prostate exam without representation!!!

Mittens Howell, III June 28, 2012 at 2:12 pm

I remember all these brave patriots, armed to the teeth and marching on Washington back in 2000 to save the nation when the White-House was stolen.

Oh, my mistake, they were the ones cheering.

DahBoner July 3, 2012 at 8:57 am

Yeah, the Supreme Court overthrew the election. So?–2000, Repukes

The interwebs are FULL of cowsuit crazypants hysteria today, AND I LOVE IT. Mmm, delicious schadenfreude!

Jus_Wonderin June 28, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Is it prescience or insanity that my long dead father (40 years this august) said "One day there will be two sides. You have to pick which side you want to be on."

He didn't say that as fatherly advice, he stated in the context of some political belief he thought was radical.

Oh, he was a conservative.

We have yet to hear from Ted Nugent today. Please, pretty please Editrix bring us some Nugent…he's gotta be going double gonzo today.

actor212 June 28, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Sadly, Teh Nuge is on tour and unavailable for comment, unless you're a nubile sixteen year old with a nice rack

Are you?

Terry June 28, 2012 at 2:28 pm

He's playing in Michigan next. He should issue a joint announcement with Matthew Davis.

coolhandnuke June 28, 2012 at 2:38 pm

I am of a legal age. No rack but on occasion I sprout antlers.

MacRaith June 28, 2012 at 2:16 pm

If clowns like this guy really lived in the kind of society they think they live in, they'd all have been rounded up and sent to FEMA death camps long ago. But they're still free to walk around and spew hateful, fact-free nonsense about the government and the president. Ain't America grand?

GemlikeFlame June 28, 2012 at 2:37 pm

Land that I love, but seriously… Is it just me or are there any coherent rationales for why this is a bad thing?

I've read all the rants and even the most recent PalinTwitter on the topic but I have yet to have anyone get down to nuts and bolts about what terrible effect this is going to have on whatever it is going to have a terrible effect on. Does anyone really believe that this mandates death panels and the like? Or is this just more Obama-bashing?

Can somebody explain this to me?

MissNancyPriss June 28, 2012 at 9:42 pm

I dunno.

Baconzgood June 28, 2012 at 2:17 pm

Ummm. Treason isn't very patriotic.

Goonemeritus June 28, 2012 at 2:17 pm

I wish you told me to avoid Bob Evans before I went to all you can eat deep fried Thursdays for lunch.

scvirginia June 28, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Is it a safe bet that a 'Bob Evans' is similar to a 'Golden Corral'?

If them poors get healed, we'll KILL 'EM!

"There are times government has to do things to get what it wants and holds a transvaginal ultrasound wand to your head,” Davis said. “I’m saying at some point, we have to ask the question when do we turn that transvaginal ultrasound wand around and say no and resist."

When we stick it up your ass, Davis!

freakishlywrong June 28, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Crazy fuckers. How in the fuck do mild reforms on a for-profit healthcare system inspire armed rebellion against your own gubbmint? Crazy Mothafuckers.

CommieLibunatic June 28, 2012 at 2:23 pm

Word. I'd like to see these guys' eyeballs explode when they see something REALLY worth getting upset over, like a famine or plague.

Then again, it's hard to imagine anything worse than the horror of an attractive, intelligent, black Democrat taking the White House.

actor212 June 28, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Here's what it will come down to:

1 asshat will be caught carrying a gun to a rally for a Congresscritter. He'll be arrested, and tried and convicted.

That is all.

Terry June 28, 2012 at 2:29 pm

In Arizona, things went much further than that and nothing really changed.

freakishlywrong June 28, 2012 at 2:41 pm

I'd just like to see a member of the vaunted fourth estate ASK that goddamn question.

x111e7thst June 28, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Makes me long for the good old days when the black helicopters of the world government would just have swooped down on this fucker and carted him off to face a death panel.

real_dc_native June 28, 2012 at 5:25 pm

Wait – does this ruling mean we get our death panels now? That's Great because I still have my list!

TribecaMike June 28, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Oh goody, I've wanted to see a replay of Shay's Rebellion for ages! Or is this a lot more like the Whiskey Rebellion?

fartknocker June 28, 2012 at 2:27 pm

I suspect the amount of bullshit currently being broadcasted by Fox News and the WSJ would make John Deere envious. It is fun watching there heads implode over the court's ruling.

MissTaken June 28, 2012 at 2:29 pm

I done read that these so-called doctors like to stick a camera up your butt and take a pikshur. Wut you think the guvmint gonna do with them there picshures, huh??!1/ I ain't lettin nobody take a pictuur of my buttt!!11!!

SorosBot June 28, 2012 at 2:37 pm

But it's perfectly OK to force the doctors to stick a camera in your vajayjay if you want an abortion.

glamourdammerung June 28, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Now, to be fair, have you all thought maybe it is not that they are anti-abortion as much as they just like shoving cameras inside women?

I guess we will have to see what gets added to the Federal Flood Insurance next to see if my theory is valid.

BaldarTCrabass June 28, 2012 at 2:39 pm

Polyp libel!

prommie June 28, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Thats just a cover for what they're really doing, which is planting secret surveillance chips what can read your thoughts up there in your butt.

Crank_Tango June 28, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Let's wait to hear what noted constitutional scholars Chuck Norris and Ted Nugent have to say on the subject.

coolhandnuke June 28, 2012 at 2:31 pm

This might be news to Davis and his paramilitary fantasies, but there are legions of progressives who can (and have) skillfully execute(d) a head shot with an M16 from 500 yards and can deliver some hand-to-hand whoop ass like he has never seen or felt.

Jimmyone June 28, 2012 at 3:11 pm

Yeah, these wackos just don't get it…Some of us older hippie types like guns too, and we knows which end to point. Not all the skills learned during the 60's and 70's have been lost.

MosesInvests June 29, 2012 at 1:34 am

Some of us were soldiers, also, too.

Estproph June 28, 2012 at 2:34 pm

I can't wait for them to try to overthrow the government. This should be entertaining. There's not enough Cheetos for them to supply an army.

I think the southern states tried that once, it didn't go too well for them.

AbandonHope June 28, 2012 at 2:37 pm

Yes, but this time we should just let 'em. I think they greatly overestimate their importance.

glamourdammerung June 28, 2012 at 2:49 pm

How about a compromise of we flatten them, then cut them loose?

weejee June 28, 2012 at 2:41 pm

Oh I don't know, they make out like bandits when it comes to where tax Ameros are spent vrs. where they are collected.

Chow Yun Flat June 28, 2012 at 2:37 pm

When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for right-wing blowhards to whine…Matt Davis will send an email.

scvirginia June 28, 2012 at 2:53 pm

Win!

James Michael Curley June 28, 2012 at 2:39 pm

Obama has destroyed more jobs and ruined my company. I just signed a long term contract for wheel barrow rentals so my employees can cart the bodies of ailing poors off the streets.

FlownOver June 28, 2012 at 2:41 pm

I'm not dead yet!

TribecaMike June 28, 2012 at 2:46 pm

I'm getting better!

actor212 June 28, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Came for the Python references, leaving happy

MosesInvests June 29, 2012 at 1:35 am

You're not fooling anyone, you know.

MosesInvests June 29, 2012 at 1:35 am

Do us a favour, eh?

SayItWithWookies June 28, 2012 at 2:39 pm

But if there isn't needless suffering in America, how will the rich know they're better than everybody else?

BZ1 June 28, 2012 at 2:40 pm

a call to arms from JeffersonMatthew Davis

James Michael Curley June 28, 2012 at 2:41 pm

Need to get out the message that it isn't Obamacare, it's Obama Cares.

Jus_Wonderin June 28, 2012 at 2:43 pm

Isn't it a bit foolish to try to revolt against a country who spends more on its defense than any other country on the globe…ever?

James Michael Curley June 28, 2012 at 2:52 pm

Then every other industrialized country on the globe COMBINED!

real_dc_native June 28, 2012 at 5:19 pm

Those people in the Minuteman costumes with their rifles are going to feel pretty stupid when the government brings out the Nuclear Cannon.

Jus_Wonderin June 28, 2012 at 5:23 pm

Why can't we have Phasers? Just us, not them. But, really, why can't we have Phasers? It doesn't even need a “STUN” setting.

miss_grundy June 28, 2012 at 7:27 pm

Wow, did you watch The Newsroom on Sunday night??????

Jus_Wonderin June 29, 2012 at 6:07 am

Actually….yes. I think I am going to like that show.

Antispandex June 28, 2012 at 2:46 pm

Look, they had all of this champagne bought, the "see we told you so" parties were planned, all of their "I was against Obama care before it was popular" speeches were written…can you blame a guy for being pissed?

glamourdammerung June 28, 2012 at 2:48 pm

I would think that advocating a criminal act would get one removed from the bar.

real_dc_native June 28, 2012 at 5:15 pm

only if you are a liberal or a brown person

MittBorg June 28, 2012 at 7:47 pm

You'd think.

chascates June 28, 2012 at 2:48 pm

Stalwart defender of the poor Rush Liimbaugh opined on today's show that this is going to hurt poor people the most, because the states are broke, BROKE, (since they got rid of all taxes except 'sin' taxes) and the states are the ones who will have to pay for this.
A CATO institute spokesman on NPR said it'll hurt more than poor people because the now insurance companies will be forced to give people with preexisting conditions they worst sort of medical care.

thesuniverse June 28, 2012 at 2:50 pm

What the fuck is going on with my state? I mean, I get the chronic unemployment and rotting infrastructure can make people cranky, but have they stopped pumping Xanax in our water supply?

MittBorg June 28, 2012 at 2:52 pm

Any minute now, some of his fine, upstanding fellow-citizens will be trundled into the ER, having shot off their teensy weensy little dickie-birds by attempting to comply with his call to armed insurrection.

Jeeze, these people are too fucking pathetic for words. What are the penalties for inciting armed insurrection, again?

miss_grundy June 28, 2012 at 7:31 pm

An idiotic HVAC technician on a job site in Birmingham, MI shot off part of his peen when he was moving his Glock around his waistband. It's a shame he missed the femoral artery because it at least would have thinned the herd by one member….

MittBorg June 28, 2012 at 7:42 pm

I was thinking of that fine, not-so-upstanding-any-longer gentleman, actually. Hopefully, he has taken himself out of the gene pool without contributing to its further deterioration.

sullivanst June 28, 2012 at 2:54 pm

Davis, why don't you join your other highly intellectually developed conservative friends and escape the horrible scourge of the government acting to expand healthcare access to as many Americans as possible by fleeing to Canada? You're almost there already!

Allmighty_Manos June 28, 2012 at 2:56 pm

My grandpa didn't fight in WWII to defend my right to stiff hospitals so I could get out of buying health insurance just to see some Commie judge to take it away.

Guppy June 28, 2012 at 2:57 pm

Oh boy! He's about to have long, uncomfortable meetings with the Secret Service and the Marshals Service! Not even the Nuge has pulled that one off (yet)!

sullivanst June 28, 2012 at 2:58 pm

To the reeducation camp with him!

(Can you reeducate someone who has yet to be educated?)

Chichikovovich June 28, 2012 at 3:04 pm

This guy lives in Michigan, but I'd just like to make sure it is noted in the record that he is an Ohio State grad.

real_dc_native June 28, 2012 at 5:34 pm

4 dead in Ohio….

MissNancyPriss June 28, 2012 at 9:48 pm

duly noted.

Chichikovovich June 28, 2012 at 10:31 pm

Thanks, Miss Nancy, I'm counting on you to help spread the word.—

Ben Cisco June 28, 2012 at 3:06 pm

The only thing better than the ruling is this thread.

I'm just gonna take a few minutes and soak in it.

owhatever June 28, 2012 at 3:12 pm

He is so cute when he's mad. Just a fuzzy little muppet with a hinged mouth but an unhinged brain. When I first read his post, I thought he was offering to turn the gun around and commit suicide, and I supported that choice.

elburritodeluxe June 28, 2012 at 3:17 pm

We can call it the Rascal Rebellion!
Crazed teabaggers will turn their motorized wheelchairs into Technicals, mounted with recoilless rifles.
Run (or walk quickly) for the hills, Libruls!

Nostrildamus June 28, 2012 at 3:51 pm

Don't worry. It's just a surveyor's gun.

OurHoboSenator June 28, 2012 at 4:54 pm

I've been avoiding Bob Evans for almost twenty years, since my last grandparent died.

real_dc_native June 28, 2012 at 5:13 pm

I get it now. We've lined the souther border with stupid states like Texas and Arizona. Now Michigan is bravely protecting our northern border with a stupid buffer. We don't need to worry about Canadians sneaking into the country with states like Michigan lining the border!

fuflans June 28, 2012 at 5:14 pm

so i think we're not campaigning for bamz in MI this year.

starfanglednut June 28, 2012 at 7:46 pm

If a liberal had spouted this bullshit during W's administration, he'd have been waterboarded in Gitmo.

randomjnerd June 28, 2012 at 9:44 pm

Looks like the 101'st chairborne has declared defcon 2.

swell65 June 28, 2012 at 10:59 pm

But Matt Davis apologized for sending an errant e-mail that contained what he called unedited work product.
[...]
Davis said he typed his comments and accidentally hit “reply all.”

Todd Palin & Joe The Un-Plumber had a baby?

That's Not-Joe the Un-Plumber to you, bub!

ttommyunger June 29, 2012 at 9:43 am

The Derp is strong with this one.

outragedcitizen June 29, 2012 at 10:00 am

The way I remember my high school civics lessons, it is against the law to promote armed rebellion against the government.

Your move, FBI.

Chow Yun Flat June 28, 2012 at 3:04 pm

I regret I have but one upfist to give.
