Remember the good old days when the Constitution stomping Handgun, Inc. crowd would hold up Great Britian as the prime example of a nearly gun-free society? Or the Leftists that predicted mass starvation if we passed welfare reform? And now that Great Britian is as gun free as it is socialist, where are the bleeding hearts and the anti-gun-pro-statist hacks when news of their beloved example England is not so good?
Mr. Fu does note that thankfully the Leftists have learned at least one lesson, to shut up about gun-control. Mr. Fu suspects this is more from election losses and poll data than from the realization that gun-control does not work. But at least they became silent on one topic.
Trigonometry, Mr. Fu still uses it. Mr. Fu speculates that if you can handle trigonometry, you too can have a successful career in the fabulous world of science and engineering. Or at least software development.
Not posting. Not posting. Mr. Fu has had some very busy days, but nothing that justifies this extreme lack of posting. Life and other things just have a way of intruding into an on-line presence. Funny that. It is nice to have a life that does intrude into an on-line presence. Or at least a Battlefield 2 habit, it’s similar to a life. Actually it is similar to a whole bunch of lives and a lot of spectacular deaths, all lived and lost in a short period of time.
There is a joke about life and camping out at spawn points in there somewhere, but this is a family friendly blog.
Just read a message from COLONEL FU. He has arrived at Fort Benning and hope to be home-home by the end of the week.
Welcome back, COLONEL FU!
In the Yale Law Review. Sounds fair, perhaps even too fair. But no where near the Spanish Inquisition that the leftists want you to believe it is. Then the Spanish Inquisition probably was no where near the Spanish Inquisition in our heads. It was bad, but considering the historical context, not all that unusual.
Gitmo, unlike the early stages of the Inquisition, does not have any “true believers” in the sense that any action is justifiable if it leads to saving a soul from the fires of hell. Mr. Fu would fear the “true believers” of the left far more than the “true believers” among the Christians. At least for the Christians side they do not want you to go to hell. Leftists do not believe in heaven or hell, so they can only serve the interests of the State. And the interests of the State as run by the leftists are usually not in your best interests.
Glenn Reynolds has a rather biting commentary (‘They were a bit bitey”):
