Animal’s Hump Day News

Happy Hump Day!

Wow.  John Lott Jr. nails it again:

A week ago, President Biden explained how when you “put a pistol on a brace, it turns into a gun.” Of course, a pistol is already a gun. Or how about his claim that the brace “Makes them where you can have a higher-caliber weapon — a higher-caliber bullet coming out of that gun”? Of course, if you are worried about recoil, why not just use a rifle — heavier guns dampen the recoil, and rifles weigh more.

But while it is easy to dismiss Biden as not knowing what he is talking about, you have to wonder if others are deliberately misleading people.

Hint: They are trying to deliberately mislead people.  And since, when doing so, they are talking to people who A) are committed supporters to The Side, and 2) also have zero knowledge about firearms, they can get away with it, and they’ll keep doing so.  Maddening.

With that said…

On To the Links!

Yeah, equal treatment under the law is dead.

CNN hasn’t fact-checked Biden for months.  Of course not; CNN is still a de facto arm of the Democratic party.

National treasure Dr. Victor Davis Hanson on waking up to woke.

No one is above the law – except Hunter Biden.

And who could blame them?

These things always backfire.

California has been getting jolts of Marxism for decades now.

Maybe try punishing shoplifters?

More on that: No, probably not.

It is unfair and wrong, and the Left doesn’t care.

Hell, I don’t want either of them, either. But if forced to choose, I know which way I’d go.

Where’s Hunter?  Nobody seems to know.

Get woke, go broke.

More interest rate hikes likely.

This Week’s Cultural Edification:

 I liked the work Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn did as Brooks & Dunn, and one of their best albums was the 2005 platter Hillbilly Deluxe.  I suppose I like this album and the song that goes by the same title not only because it’s a fun tune, but also because the song really captures Friday nights in the small towns near where I grew up, in Allamakee County, Iowa.

It’s a great song and elicits memories of good times.  Here’s the official video for Hillbilly Deluxe.  Enjoy.
