Cain and Abel in Modern America

Adam and Eve live in middle America with their two young sons, Cain and Abel.

Cain keeps a gun hidden under his mattress.  His brother Abel hides an old Playboy magazine under his mattress.

Eve is making their beds one morning and discovers their respective contraband.
Adam is not pleased with his sons.

Adam to Cain:  
Son, don't hide your weapon.  It should always be within easy reach.  What if you needed to shoot a few loads in the middle of the night?  And don't ever be ashamed of your hardware.  It's a sign of your strength and a symbol of your manhood.  In fact, you should display it in public at all times.

Adam to Abel:  
I can't believe you would threaten the entire family with your dangerous literature!  That's precisely why we need strict government rules -- to protect us from bad things like sex.  I am shocked and appalled and you must be punished for this reckless behavior.

Adam to Cain:  
Cain, shoot the son of a bitch.

Knowing What We Know

"Knowing what we know now, would you have authorized the [Iraq] invasion?" Fox News host Megyn Kelly asked potential presidential candidate Jeb Bush.

"I would have," Bush said.

And knowing what we know now, no one in their right mind would vote for Jeb Bush.

"Utah might bring back firing squads, combining two things American has an abundance of:  guns and bad ideas."

Is Cat Scratch Fever Fatal?

Aging rocker Ted Nugent is a sitting Board member for the National Rifle Association.  According to Raw Story, Nugent recently ranted against President Obama in rather inflammatory terms:

[Nugent] went on to apologize to members of the military for allowing “a commander in chief who is the enemy” to take over the country.  “I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod, if not shame enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America.”

It is unlikely that this sort of stage performance will have any impact on his status as a NRA Board member.  Nugent has been saying outrageous things for years.
