US Paradrops 50 Tons Of Ammo To Syrian Rebels; A Fire-Breathing Obama Calls For Legislation Curbing Ammo Availability

The first half of the title is true. The second half, while fake, sounds kinda plausible in our wholly irrational day. One envisions the teleprompter loaded with:

I am shocked and disgusted by the indifference our society displays toward the rising tide of global violence caused by the free availability of arms. The only thing worse is the mindless conservative rejection of even the simplest efforts at curbing rodeo artillery sales and the rampant distribution of plastic explosives at county fairs. I blame un-educated revanchist neo-Confederate Tea Partiers for this sordid situation.
It is my intention to do whatever it takes, even going so far as to toy with the idea of putting Congress in time-out, to stem the tide of this plague with the remaining time I have in office. Our society has been too patient for too long with people clinging bitterly to 18th century agrarian notions.
Won’t somebody think of the children that escaped Planned Parenthood?

Really, #OccupyResoluteDesk needn’t worry, with the Chamber of Commies out to eliminate any chance of real reform.

Update: I’d like to vary Scott Ott here. Given all of the shrill cries about getting rid of firearms, and the need to revere The Law of the Land (e.g. ObamaCare), were one to pass a law explicitly allowing Liberals to disarm themselves, would the tension between the desire to conform and the gross stupidity of their ideas trigger a meltdown? I confess a morbid curiosity to find out.

Paco is on board.

    I am so sick of arming “rebels.”

    Every time we arm “rebels” they turn out to be worse than the previous regime. But we’re told, “No, they’re just like George Washington!”

    Time to tell the world, “You’re on your own. If your country is screwed up, figure it out and fix it yourself.”

    I say we cut the torch hand off the Statue of Liberty and install a huge hand that’s got the middle finger thrust up into the air.

    I am more generally sick of the total lack of a coherent strategy.

    Did you mean “allowing” or “requiring”? What’s keeping Liberals from voluntarily disarming themselves right now?

    C’mon, Liberals, set the example. Show us The Way!

    Oh, and while yer at it, give up yer fossil-fuel-burnin’ planes, trains, ‘n automobiles, too….

    Then you have more faith than most. I believe this IS the stinking strategy if you’re convinced that “God Damn America”, and “if the political winds change you will stand with Islam”, while you’re creating chaos globally and “fundamentally changing” the U.S. I can think of a better place to thrust Liberty’s middle finger than air.

    There is nothing ”morbid” about any thing like meltdown or self mutilation that afflicts liberals. The word you were looking for was delightful.

    Middle finger thrust up into the air? Yes, please! If you think we suck, stop taking our money and expecting us to help you. We can’t help ourselves, let alone you; we have an inmate running the asylum.

    For pity’s sake, if this society and government is not God’s judgment upon us, I don’t know what it is.

    I don’t think a coherent strategy is possible in our system. One POTUS can have one, but the next idiot changes everything because he thinks the last guy is simply a preening fool who couldn’t poor water from a boot with the instructions on the heel. All too often, things are coherent in the same administration.
