First of all, I am not a gun nut. Yes, I love hunting more than any of my other recreational activities. Still, I only have three guns, all with the function of hunting. I have been shopping for a pistol, but more because I love shooting than because I feel threatened in my home. Even so, I have a loaded shot-gun just waiting for anyone daring enough to bust down my door. That said, Texas’ new gun law rocks, as does this Washington Post Article:
Sympathy for violent offenders and criminals in general runs low in Texas, underscored by its busy death row. The state leads the United States in executions with 388 since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976 by the U.S. Supreme Court.
A conservative political outlook and widespread fondness for hunting also means Texans are a well-armed people capable of defending themselves with deadly force.
God Bless Texas! With the new law, I suppose it is time to considering shelling out the cash for the HK USP45 Tactical pistol and keeping it safely available in my home. Here is a little video for ya!

What makes me sick are oil company executives who justify their criminal profits by saying America has it good compared to other countries and that high fuel prices help curb demand. In the movie
Failure to Launch How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days there is a really cute part where the two stars are playing a game that requires one party to determine if the other party is lying or not. If they believe the party to be lying they say B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T. Seriously though, these oil companies are full of liers and I am saying Bullshit (forgive me Lord) right now about this horrific approach of winning our confidence.
In other news, ethanol (moonshine basically) is made of corn, sugarcane, beets, wood pulp, switchgrass (prairie grass), and other crops which are high in starch. Maybe the oil companies should realize they are in the business of providing customers fuel for our cars and not in the business of buying and selling black stuff. Sure you have 100 years of investment in your business models which require you to greedily cause wars and corrupt our leaders, but a little investment in the farms of America would go a long way to winning over some customer evangelists who care more about our national economy than they do a pennies difference at the pump. So, to all the oil companies out there… get off your high horses and realize American consumers, while materialistic, are educated consumers. This includes you Senor Bush.
