Georgia. Why Risk It?

GA.WhyRiskIt

If you’re planning your family’s summer vacation, or your company’s next meeting, then you’ll want to avoid the area of the country that is conveniently labeled on maps as “GEORGIA”.

The Republican governor of Georgia has signed the “Guns Everywhere” law.

Gov. Nathan Deal signed legislation today that would vastly expand where Georgians can legally carry firearms, a proposal that has drawn heaps of praise and scorn from outside groups.

‘People who follow the rules can protect themselves and their families from people who don’t follow the rules,” said Deal, adding: “The Second Amendment should never be an afterthought. It should reside at the forefronts of our minds.’

House Bill 60, which passed in the final hours of this year’s legislative session, allows Georgians to legally carry firearms in a wide range of new places, including schools, bars, churches and government buildings. A recent analysis also said it could let felons use the state’s “stand your ground” rules to claim self-defense if they feel threatened. click here for full story at ajc.com

You’ll want to avoid even changing planes in Atlanta. The Guns Everywhere law now permits people to carry guns in airports. That’s right. You can’t take your gun onto a plane. (Yet.) But if you’re caught going through security at ATL with a gun in your bag or your waistband you’ll be stopped. And sent on your way. With your gun. That’s right. Because NRA.

 


The End (so far)

Creationist Cosmos

In the autumn of 1980, a groundbreaking science series aired on PBS in the United States, and later on the BBC. Carl Sagan’s Cosmos: A Personal Voyage changed the way the we thought about science and the universe we live in. Fast forward to the winter of 2014. Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson does Sagan proud with Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.

It is a magnificent survey of our understanding of the universe and our continuing explorations via the scientific method. So… of course it has attracted the loud condemnation of a band of idiots who style themselves “creationists”. Because that sort of rhymes with “scientists”?? In any case, these nutters want equal time (which even Fox is not inclined to grant them) and bible stories in science textbooks (which textbook companies are not inclined to grant them). But they whine and they whine and they whine. Nutters. Annoying shit-for-brains nutters. But now the very highly evolved folks at Funny Or Die have given us a great gift – by giving the nutters what they want: Creationist Cosmos.

Haven’t seen Neil deGrasse Tyson’s COSMOS? You’re in for a treat! A treat that has been 13.8 billion years in the making. Starting with the Big Bang and continuing in an unbroken chain of cosmic evolution to the moment when a clump of star stuff that answers to your name clicks on this image…

P.S. If you are of the opinion that your biblical stories or any other mythology should be taught alongside, or instead of, science in publicly funded schools (or anywhere really), then you should click here.
