So, I had to rent a car recently. And, as always, they hand me the keys. 2 of them. And two of the car door opener fobs. Blus their big plastic tag. All on a ring that can not be opened.
Now, never mind the annoyance factor of having this big wad of plastic and metal to, somehow, fit in a bocket when I’m not driving the car.
The thing that really irks me is… why on earth put both keys and car door unlockers on a ring that can not be opened? That you can not seperate the two sets?
What is the point of forcing me to lose, or lock in the car, BOTH sets of keys?
Does it not make far more sense to give me the keys on seperate rings? Or even give me the option of them maintaining one of the sets?
I can not fathom ANY logic in their action. IT makes no sense. And yet, somehow, at the highest levels of these corporations, it has been decided that this is right way to do things?!
The US Supreme Court has refused to hear a challenge to a Chcicago law barring the sale or possession of semi-automatic weapons that carry more then 10 rounds of ammunition. A law similiar to those in at least 8 other states.
The decision to not hear the case was 7-2, with only Thomas and Scalia dissenting.
It is also interesting to note- as conservative as this Supreme Court often is- they have routinely avoided cases that seek to protect or expand rights to carry weapons in public.
A small victory for sensibility maybe, but I’ll take it.

This Blog Post: 5 Reasons I Will Not Vote For Trump If He Is The GOP Nominee
I am impressed to see a conservative, on a sight so often overrun with nonsense, actually make some decent, rational arguements against Trump.
But of course- the entire thing is negated by this line in the opening paragraphs: “President Obama has been dangerous because he is a partisan (not an ideologue which is actually a positive). He is driven wholly by politics, doing or not doing something because the other side hates it. “
This nonsense just drives me crazy. I am not the biggest Obama fan. In many areas, to be generous, he is in line with northern republicans. He is a far cry from the far left liberal he is often painted as.
And let’s be clear- Obama has been the victim of a congress where the republicans abandoned their duty to our nation- and allowed themselves to be held hostage by a small but loud minority that drug republicans to the right- and ground government to a halt by refusing to do their damn jobs. The spoiled little brat on the playground…”I may be in the minority but if we can’t do things my way I’m taking my ball and going home”. WHAAA!
Honestly- I think the far rights nonsense helped push Obama to do more then he would have otherwise. Without any hope of the normal give and take of a representative goverment…he was foced to take actions so at least something got done in this country.
And- full disclosure: let me say- Erik Eriksons RedState “blog” is a site I love to hate. I’ve been banned numerous times for daring to comment on their anti global climate change articles- and having the brazeness to not only dissect their nonsense but to thouroughly document all of my points (which is far more then I can say for their nonsense).
