You'll Pry This Sandwich Out of My Cold Dead Hands

Gas giant ConocoPhillips is conducting an experiment in corporate civil disobedience. In its Oklahoma home office, it's expressly flouting a state law forbidding employers from banning concealed weapons in the workplace. The National Rifle Association has retaliated in short order with a call to members to boycott Conoco gas stations and a series of billboards proclaiming "ConocoPhillips is no friend to the Second Amendment."


NRA president Wayne LaPierre notes with characteristic restraint that ConocoPhillips's precedent is permitted to stand, it "could be a blueprint for thousands of corporations across this country to declare their parking lots anti-Second Amendment zones." which could in effect gut 'carry' laws in 38 states and restrict hunters on every hunting trip." The Christian Sciece Monitor's Kris Axtman and Mark Clayton report that LaPierre also claims that it may just be a matter of time "before gun owners would have nowhere to get a sandwich or fill up with gas."

Damn straight. Because you remember the old adage: First they came for the shotguns and I said nothing. Then they came for the canapes. . . .

It's the night before the two-night Democratic primary debate extravaganza, and we're already tired. Turns out having 20 candidates spread across two nights when only six or eight of them matter is not the must-see TV we all thought it was going to be! But that's not to dissuade you from getting excited! We're excited! We're so excited! We're so ...

SCARED!

In case you need a reminder, here is how it's going to go down:

Lately he's been blowing smoke from another orifice.

After a cursory examination of the TWELVE filings in the case against California Congressman Duncan Hunter just in the past 24 hours, we can confidently declare that that guy is a fucking idiot. The prosecutors have him by every last one of his short and curlies -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to pay for hundreds of thousands of dollars of ski trips, video games, tuition, and plane tickets for the family rabbit.

A rational human being would have pleaded down a year ago and given up his congressional seat, since he could cash out and make a lot more money as a lobbyist anyway. But not Duncan Hunter! He made the federal government chase him down and document every last carton of cigarettes, round of tequila, and Uber ride of shame home from his many girlfriends' houses in a 60-count indictment filed last August. And still this dumb sumbitch refused to admit he was caught, even after his lovely wife (and co-conspirator) Margaret Hunter flipped on him this month -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to carry on multiple affairs and you piss off the US Attorneys enough that they put every 7 a.m. Uber ride in your indictment.
