$20 says they confirm the asshat anyway.

No bet as I believe they will confirm him, too.  He is exactly the kind of person the anti-gun Democrats want leading the BATFE.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

I heard the judiciary committee was half R's and half D's.  If he is not voted out of the committee, D's have said they will use procedural means to bring the nomination through for a floor vote.

The man could have said F America, pledge his allegiance to China, then pulled down his pants and wiped his butt with the constitution during the hearings and I would still expect him to be confirmed

I'll buck the trend and question whether he'll be confirmed. It seems ATF Director is one of those positions that has often gone for very long periods with an acting in place as the critters bickered.

I hope you're right. The cynical side of me keeps coming out more and more lately.

I recently got an ONN keyboard which is a typo generator. The keys are low on the surface so that the slightet touch generates a character.  It also seems to miss characters, epecially the space, and the sligthest error in typing an
A kicks the caps lock on or off.

I remember having an identical problem when I switched from mechanical typewriters where you had to put some energy into the keys, to elecric ones, but I don't think it was this bad.  I think its design has been influenced by the modern keyless keyboards; at least I think so.

I really have to go over every paragraph and correct stuff, which impedes the flow of the creative juices.

Butr I'll muddle through. <<  I left that one in as a demo.  I barely brushed the "r."



My bet's FOR confirmation.

That's an exact quote. What he meant to say, I think, was "self-deprecating humor."

What do you think about the notion that "well-regulated militia" refers to a well-organized (trained) militia? 'Course, it says you need free access to weapons in order to have that, so Chipman is wrong either way...

What do you think about the notion that "well-regulated militia" refers to a well-organized (trained) militia?

That is what it means. It means organized, trained, and uniformly equipped. And since the M16 and M4 are the primary rifles of the U.S. military, the intent of the various revisions of the Militia Acts (going back to 1792) would be that in today's world every member of the "unorganized" militia (that's every able bodied male between the ages of 17 and 45) should be required to own an AR-15-type rifle or carbine, four 30-round magazines, and a 200-round battle pack of M193 or M855 5.56x45 ammunition. That's the rough modern equivalent of what the early militiamen were required to provide according to the militia acts of 1792:

Quote
That every citizen, so enrolled and notified, shall, within six months thereafter, provide himself with a good musket or firelock, a sufficient bayonet and belt, two spare flints, and a knapsack, a pouch, with a box therein, to contain not less than twenty four cartridges, suited to the bore of his musket or firelock, each cartridge to contain a proper quantity of powder and ball; or with a good rifle, knapsack, shot-pouch, and powder-horn, twenty balls suited to the bore of his rifle, and a quarter of a pound of powder; and shall appear so armed, accoutred and provided, when called out to exercise or into service, ...

Then it seems the amendment does have training in mind, only not the way Chipman suggests it does.

Correct. It means the old dudes who wrote it would have wanted (and expected) us ("the people") to regularly do just what the liberal bed-wetters want to claim is illegal -- go out in a field somewhere and practice militia stuff.
