My dear fellow Gun Nutters™.

Today I have sum good news fer y’all! Just stop ‘n think bout this fer one darn cotton pickin minute, if’n ya will…

Even if the friggin skaredycat libtards out there take way our guns, we Gun Nutters™ will still have access ta hammers, which our good friends at the NRA tells us are responsible fer more deaths in the US than even sum types o’ guns! (So that means them hammers must be purty awesome weapons, rite?)

Matta fak, did y’all know that even as I rite this here letter ta y’all there are hundreds o’ thousands, probably even millions, o’ semiautomatic hammers available in this grate nayshun o’ ours!

Oh shure, they don't call em semiautomatic hammers, they call em “nail guns”. Sounds harmless, rite? But don't be fooled, these so-called nail guns are really semiautomatic hammers (‘n with the rite knowhow ‘n a little bit a tinkerin could even be converted ta fully automatic hammers).

And while so far there have only been a few fatalities from semiautomatic hammers, it is a wicked fact that each year sum 37,000 people cross the nayshun have ta go ta hospital emergency rooms due ta serious injuries from these (potenshilly) lethal weapons.

And y’all shoud check this one out rite quicklike:

You can own as many o’ these semiautomatic hammers as y’all want ta!

All ya have ta do’s go down to yer local hardware store where’n they‘s freely sold over the counter ‘n ya can buy one on the spot, no kwestyuns asked or background check rekwired. (I ask y’all, “How awesome is that?”)

And so I say to all ma fellow Gun Nutter™ friends out there, I sez, “Don't worry bout it. If'n they take our semiautomatic rifles way from us we’ll still have our semiautomatic hammers, ‘n ah know tha the friggin libtard carpenter’s unions will see to it that we nevah lose those”.

Anyways, hope this here news helps ease any angsiety y’all mite be havin bout losin the luv of yer lives, so’s y’all can rest easy now ‘n have a good day.

Cheers!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
Are you sure you want to remove this diary from your hotlist?
Are you sure you want to remove your recommendation? You can only recommend a diary once, so you will not be able to re-recommend it afterwards.

      tag labeled "satire"?

      Actually, these posts would more properly be labeled as "parody" but I didn't see any tag available for listing them as such.

      Parody defined (fr. Merriam-Websters Collegiate Dictionary)/ 1: a literary or musical work in which the style of an author or work is closely imitated for comic effect or in ridicule.

          read through the rules regarding posting of diaries and comments before even registering on KOS and do not believe that I have violated them in any way, shape or form (e.g., I am not a “sock puppet” as some have claimed).

          In addition, I do not believe the use of the word “libtard” could be construed as “offensive”, especially as it is used to parody conservatives who use this term.

          However, due to your comments I reread the applicable rules. Here are a few that I think apply to my posts and especially your comments re my use of the word “libtard”:

          Some Rules Regarding Participation in Diaries and
          Comment Threads
          •    Do not make threats or calls for violence. Threatening to beat up or kill someone, or suggesting that people should kill themselves, or saying that poison should be put in somebody's crème brûlée, or making similar remarks, even as a joke, is prohibited and can lead to banning. This does not mean that all forms of cartoon violence, literary references, metaphors and the like are barred.

          Admin Moderation: A single warning. Second offense: Banning.

          (As I indicated above, my use of the word “libtard” is meant to be a “parody”, as in “literary reference”. However, if you feel this is not the case, then I suggest you take your problem up with the Site Administrator, and I will abide by whatever decision that Administrator makes.)

          •    This is a site for adults and language is not generally policed here, in terms of "shit," "fuck," "asshole," or any of those other family-unfriendly words. Avoid "fuck" in headlines to avoid triggering browser filters of users who log on at their workplace. Anti-semitic, anti-Arab, racist, sexist, ableist and heterosexist language, however, is unwelcome.

          Admin Moderation: Warning, suspension, banning.

          (I do not believe the word “libtard” can in any way, shape, or form, be regarded as “anti-semitic, anti-Arab, racist, sexist, ableist and heterosexist”. However, if for some reason you feel differently then please refer your complaint to the site administrator).

          •    Thread stalking is defined as having three requirements:

          1.    On multiple occasions, one or more commenters follow a community member into diary threads; and,

          2.    The commenter(s) posts comments that include false information, personal attacks, lies, or implied/express disclosure of private information; and

          3.    The commenter(s) engages in this conduct with the intent to harass, harm, humiliate, frighten or intimidate another poster. This intent may be inferred from the number of times that the commenter follows a community member into threads and/or the nature of the comments posted.

          Stalking does not include the mere expression of disagreement, seeking out diaries or comments of favorite diarists or simply frequent interaction on the boards.

          (Unless you complain to the Site Admin that my use of the word “libtard” in the context of my diaries (i.e., as a “parody”/”literary reference”) is inappropriate and the Site Admin agrees and finds in your favor, then I will consider any further complaints upon your part re my use of the word “libtard” to fall under number 3 of the above (i.e., “thread stalking”) and I may even make a complaint of my own to the Site Admin re this issue.)

          “Accusations of stalking should not be made on comment threads but emailed to Meteor Blades or another administrator together with relevant links to evidence that comports with the requirements cited above. Repeated accusations of stalking in the comment threads will lead to a suspension of posting privileges.”
          Admin Moderation: Warning, suspension, banning.

          (One final comment re “comments”.)

          From Rating Comments:

          •    Note that there isn't a rating for 'I disagree'. If you disagree with something in a comment, post a reply saying so (and why).

          (Which is why I felt compelled to post a reply comment yesterday, on my “Why we need assault rifles” diary, that ended with STFU. I am sure you know the one, as you then posted a reply of your own.)

            you can clearly read things and think about stuff,
            I tried to write a great diary once and got panned so bad I filed it away indefinitely for reworking erased it off the site.
            hunter I think made a witty daily parody of mitt Romney.
            I think what's missing from yours is that I never really believe it's an earnest effort to complain about liberals or change a point of view. People can be really idiotic but still be endearing a bit if they ring true  to themselves and are deluded but earnest. by all means keep posting and see if you make something you like a lot or others do. good luck!

              (in your case at least) because I am not complaining about liberals, I am attempting to skewer gun nuts and/or the NRA.

              It is my belief that these people are so far past rational discussion that the only way to get around them is to take their viewpoints to the extreme and thus (hopefully) totally annihilate theme (their arguments, that is) in the eyesight of more moderately minded people.

              Well some people get it and some don't...

              To tell you the truth, I have posted facsimiles of these diaries on gun nutter type web sites, just to see what reaction I would get, and they either ignored it or, what's even scarier, agreed with it (and even suggested that I check my spelling!).

            One of the few outright victories in Wisconsin this year, for people with disabilities, was a law to change the terminology "mental retardation" to "intellectual disability" in all Wisconsin statutory language.  And much of the need for the switch is the casual "tard" kind of stuff that's gotten so common.

            I know you recognize it as bad, but I'm looking to speak up wherever I see it (and might be listened to!)

Moreover, words like "retard" or "pussies" or "monkies" (referencing black supporters of Obama) should not be avoided merely because they run a particular community the wrong way but because they rub us all the wrong way. Otherwise, we're falling into the politicians' BS "sorry-if-I-offended-anyone" trap. A heterosexist or racist comment should offend us all, straight or gay, white or brown.

          re "literary references":

          (From http://www.wordnik.com/...)

          Question: What is the origin of the word "libtard?"?

          I see it used all the time on YA. Who started this? I get the intended meaning but, frankly, I don't see it. It seems that "reptard" (obviously, republican + retard) would be a better play on words since it's a difference of only one letter between the two.

          Also, do you think any of the people using this term the same people that slammed Pres. Obama for his poorly chosen phrase on Leno?

          Answer: Okay, thanks for the rants. I've been duly insulted but remain, as you conservatives would no doubt joyously point out, uneducated in this matter. I am beginning to think that cons and reptards don't know either but they blindly parrot the words of their leaders Limbaugh, Hannity, etc. What else could explain their apparent ignorance along with their nonsensical and hypocritical spewing of the word.

          forgot Savage. Thank you.

            and gets constant use by, a relatively small group of diehard GOP supporters, and no one else.  Your use of it in a parody of 'Gun Nut-inese' logic is easily and obviously understandable, and again obviously not meant as an insult to anyone but those same GOP supporters.

            Frankly, attacking you for using it compares to the attacks on Tarrantino for using the word 'nigger' in Django Unchained.  My own assessment is that the movie would be diminished, and lose an important historical marker, if he had left it out.  That's how people talked then, and 'Libtard' is how a segment of the GOP talks about us now.  

            That's not a comment on the effectiveness of your satire, I don't think you fully capture the fear and hatred that drives these people.

  •  Traditional Haggis (5+ / 0-)

    Ingredients:
    Set of sheep's heart, lungs and liver (cleaned by a butcher)
    One beef bung
    3 cups finely chopped suet
    One cup medium ground oatmeal (use only steel cut oats, rolled oats will not work--they turn to an inedible mush)
    Two medium onions, chopped fine
    One cup beef stock
    One teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon pepper
    One teaspoon nutmeg
    ½ teaspoon mace

    Directions:
    Trim off any excess fat and sinew from the sheep's intestine and, if present, discard the windpipe. Place in a large pan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for an hour or possibly longer to ensure that they are all tender. Drain and cool.

    Some chefs toast the oatmeal in an oven until it is thoroughly dried out (but not browned or burnt!)

    Finely chop the meat and combine in a large bowl with the suet, oatmeal, finely chopped onions, beef stock, salt, pepper, nutmeg and mace. Make sure the ingredients are mixed well. Stuff the meat and spices mixture into the beef bung which should be over half full. Then press out the air and tie the open ends tightly with string. Make sure that you leave room for the mixture to expand or else it may burst while cooking. If it looks as though it may do that, prick with a sharp needle to reduce the pressure.

    Place in a pot and cover with water. Bring to the boil and immediately reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for three hours. Avoid boiling vigorously to avoid bursting the skin.

    Serve hot with "champit tatties and bashit neeps" (mashed/creamed potato and turnip/swede). For added flavor, you can add some nutmeg to the potatoes and allspice to the turnip/swede. Some people like to pour a little Scotch whisky over their haggis - Drambuie is even better!  Do not go overboard with the liquor, it will turn the haggis cold.

    I have three claw hammers, a tack hammer, a hand sledge, a long sledge, and a rubber mallet. For ammo I have thousands of nails of all sorts and sizes.

    I figure that I can hold them off for a week no problem.

    Gary - I share your negative view of guns, and I agree that some gun enthusiasts display a remarkable ability to parrot the talking points of an industry that values the health of its profits above the health of american citizens.

    However, your posts featuring your imagined caricatures of hill-billys too stupid to get parts in Deliverance is "humor" that misses its mark with those over the age of 14, and I think shows a lack of effort on your part.

    I think you are capable of much better.  Right now, even for people like myself who do not like guns, the main thing we take home from your writings is that the author cannot get beyond their own adolescent stereotyping and caricatures to make an obvious point about guns.
