Bitter Liberals Shoot Skeet

Leave a comment

On a beautiful Fall day, the arsenal comes down. One half of the Bitter Liberals came out to plink and shoot some clays. Aubrey was in the house.

A Saturday in Virginia

So you start with Belgian waffles and bacon, but between the waffles you put puree of paw paw picked a few days before on the farm. Besides butter, you also need some Hickory syrup made nearby.

Then comes some shooting on a pretty Fall afternoon. Shotguns (12 and 16 gauge; no shells for the 20 gauge) for skeet. Then some plinking with 22’s and a glock 9. We decided to shoot a couple of osage oranges with the 243. Blooey. Much fun was had.

Followed by a quick dinner and shower before going to see a world class Dublin-based pianist play Beethoven’s Emperor concerto (so weird about the between movement key change). Gorgeous night and fantastic concert.

Today I had to clean the guns.

NRA Upset over White House Position on Death Star

2 Comments

(apothecarywire 1.14.13) The recent announcement from the White House that the US will not continue to fund Deathstar construction has the NRA up in arms. NRA president David “dead cold heart” Keene claims that not only should the White House be building a Deathstar, but every classroom, school, and evangelical church should have one to remotely control in case of “trouble.”

“If we ban planet destroying spaceships, then the only people with planet destroying spaceships will be brown criminal people that us white people are scared of,” said Keene. “It is clear to me why President Barack Hussein al-Quaeda Obama, as a black man, and probably a criminal, would not want us to protect the country that he runs with a, uh, no wait. Um, nevermind.”

The White House was unavailable for comment.

No Deathstar for you!

No Deathstar for you!

Chernobyl, Verizon red alerts, and well-armed liberals

Marcus goes to Chernobyl. Read about it here http://www.ranum.com/fun/projects/chernobyl/. I was reminded of the Polidori exhibit on Chernobyl (zones of exclusion) that I saw at the Tate a few years ago or maybe it was in Montreal. Human insignificance shines through Polidori’s work in the form of dissolving cities.

Meanwhile, the safety situation here in the United States could not be more different. Some hourly Verizon guys in trucks asked permission to park in our driveway to check a nearby pole. We thought it was great when they set out orange safety cones in case the traffic on our driveway became confused. As if the yellow flashing lights were not enough…

Safety cones in the driveway. I bet their supervisor makes her kids wear bike helmets.

We spent the afternoon blowing as many clay pigeons as we could out of mid air. Jack is a good shot. Fits right in with the rest of us well-armed liberals.
