11th Circuit

The 11th circuit unanimously says that Florida’s law restricting gun sales to those older than 21 is consistent with the US historical tradition of restrictions. When I get time, I would love to see the rationale behind that.

Keep a couple of things in mind:

  • A Republican controlled legislature and governor passed the law saying that 18-20 year olds are second class citizens with no Second Amendment rights.
  • In 2018, when the law was passed, Republicans had a 79-41 majority in the Florida House, and a 25-15 majority in the Florida Senate. Rick Scott was the Governor.
  • The 11th circuit is made up of 2 Democrat and 1 Republican judges. The decision was unanimous.

Don’t for one second think that the Republicans are your friends.

Get Woke, Go Broke

The collapse of SVB bank is the second largest bank collapse in US history. It’s stock price lost 90% of its value in less than 48 hours. Most of the depositors and their deposits are uninsured. People are going to lose billions. Just who was in charge of this place?

The CFO was Joseph Gentile. He was the CFO of Lehman Brothers when they failed.

The Board of Directors is filled with diversity hires who are there because of their woke credentials. They all have pronouns in their bios, which are filled with corporate newspeak. The Head of Financial Risk and Model Risk Management was this nutbag:

This is what happens when you allow people to manage your money based on woke principles instead of on their actual skill and competence. I hope the depositors at this failed bank enjoy all of that diversity, because diversity is your strength, eh?

Get woke, go broke.

4 Year Old Dead

A 4 year old died after he was shot in the face in Kissimmee. His father was likely the one who shot him.

I knew it

His criminal record in Orange county shows 14 felony convictions for dealing drugs, 4 convictions for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and ten convictions for misdemeanor battery, domestic battery, domestic battery to a child, possession of drugs, and now he is facing another charge of possession of a firearm by a felon. So tell me, antigunners: how will making guns illegal keep this guy from having them, keeping in mind that drugs are illegal and he has no problems getting drugs wholesale to sell to others?

Other questions I would like answered: This guy has been a legal adult for 14 years. How in the hell is he walking around a free man with 18 felony and 10 misdemeanor convictions? He gets arrested two or three times a year. Consider that some of the J6 protesters are facing more than 20 years in prison for nothing more than trespassing in the Capitol.

MD Dems Seek to Decriminalize Murder

That’s not a typo. Read what they are trying to do: (pdf alert)


OK, so what does subsection (A)(4) say?

(4) SUBJECT TO SUBSECTION (B) OF THIS SECTION, committed in the perpetration of or an attempt to perpetrate:
(i) arson in the first degree;
(ii) burning a barn, stable, tobacco house, warehouse, or other outbuilding that:
1. is not parcel to a dwelling; and
2. contains cattle, goods, wares, merchandise, horses, grain, hay, or tobacco;
(iii) burglary in the first, second, or third degree;
(iv) carjacking or armed carjacking;
(v) escape in the first degree from a State correctional facility or a local correctional facility;
(vi) kidnapping under § 3–502 or § 3–503(a)(2) of this article;
(vii) mayhem;
(viii) rape;
(ix) robbery under § 3–402 or § 3–403 of this article;
(x) sexual offense in the first or second degree;
(xi) sodomy as that crime existed before October 1, 2020; or
(xii) a violation of § 4–503 of this article concerning destructive devices.

If this passes, I am going to have to add Maryland to the “no go” zones list.

Breaking: FBI Caught Lying in Court

Here is the story:

Not only has the FBI been hiding exculpatory evidence, it was also found that agents were altering testimony and documents, as well as destroying other documents, all at the explicit orders of a supervisory agent. Not only that, but it came out during the trial that the FBI was illegally intercepting communications between defendants in jail and their attorneys before then forwarding the contents of those communications to the prosecutor in the case. This is a clear violation of the Constitutional rights of the defendants.

The defense attorneys immediately filed motions in the case, but instead of considering those motions, the judge had the jury leave the room and then “paused” the trial so that the FBI and prosecutors could review this new development, or in other words, work together to get their story straight.

Corruption. The ballot box destroyed on November 20, 2020. Now the jury box is gone. What boxes are left?

More on Defensive Shooting

More information is coming out on the possible defensive shooting at an Applebee’s in Lady Lake, which is near the Villages. The decedent is Dishaun Marquis Hudson, DOB 3/10/1984:

All I could find on him was an arrest last year for domestic battery by strangulation and a request from Missouri for extradition from last January, and an arrest in Scott County Iowa. All records were sealed, but he does have a criminal record. That’s all I know of his history.

This is what is known about the shooting:

Hudson was seated at an outside patio table at the Applebee’s with a group of other people before walking out into the parking lot, where there was some sort of an altercation that involved at least three gunshots being fired before a vehicle left the scene.

After hearing the gunshots, customers still inside the restaurant fled out the back door. Hudson then walked around the building to the side door that employees use and entered the restaurant. Once inside, there was another altercation inside, during which Hudson reached into his pants. A man with a concealed weapons permit who was inside the restaurant shot Hudson, killing him.

The fact that police have released the name of the man who was shot and not the man who did the shooting probably means that the shooter is not a suspect.

More as I can get it.

NHL Players’ Pushback Against Woke Nonsense

Several NHL teams are catching static because their players are refusing to wear rainbow themed uniforms during pregame warmups. The league declared an annual ‘Pride’ month to honor faggotry, and now some of the players are refusing to drop to their knees. (see what I did there?) The left is trying to cancel them, calling them names like “coward” because they won’t honor this woke garbage.

I thought that sports teams were supposed to support the political statements of their players, or does that only apply when they are kneeling during the national anthem?

Garbage, Not Science

I saw this a week or so ago, and wanted to comment, but hey, lots of things going on. There is this study being talked about that claims resumes with they/them listed as pronouns are more likely to be overlooked than other resumes. It’s a garbage study. Let me explain:

The flaw lies in the methods of the researchers. They sent two sets of identical resumes in to prospective employers in an effort to test “whether or not the inclusion of gender-neutral pronouns impacts how employers perceive resumes.” Both featured a gender-ambiguous name, ‘Taylor Williams.’ The only difference between the test and control resumes was the presence of gender pronouns on the test version. The test resume included “they/them” pronouns under the name in the header.

The flaw here is obvious. In order for a study to be valid, you should conduct the test with the control having only one difference from the test. That difference is called the dependent variable. In this case the dependent variable is the presence or absence of preferred pronouns, NOT the presence or absence of “they/them” as opposed to “he/him” or even “she/her.”

So all they have proven is that people who put preferred pronouns in their resumes are less likely to get hired. They set out to prove that nonbinary applicants were being discriminated against, but all they managed to provide was evidence that employers don’t want the drama of assholes who insist that everyone use their preferred pronouns. It’s my guess that, should the study be repeated with the other pronouns, the results would be similar. The last thing that a company needs is some woke gender pronoun warrior running around, creating drama and potentially suing because they were misgendered.

Companies don’t like drama, they don’t like getting sued. Companies are funny like that.

Follow Along

A man died, meaning that his house would have gone to his sister, who was his next of kin. Instead, Javon Waldon produced a signed, notarized document showing that the deceased had transferred title of the home to Waldon for free. The notary, Alfrenecia Perkins, could not possibly have identified the man signing the quit claim deed. He had been dead for a week.

The whole thing started a two year mess that caused the state to uncover that Waldon had been stealing homes by forging deeds for years. Still, they weren’t going to press charges until the Orlando media got ahold of the story. Finally, Waldon pleaded guilty and was sentenced to two years in prison.

Meanwhile, the stolen home had been sold to an investor. The investor insisted that he owned the home. The sister claimed that she was the rightful owner. Complicating the issue, the decedent’s nephew was living in the home and had been evicted by the investor.

All of this came to a head when the courts had to decide who was the rightful owner of the home. No matter what was decided, someone is losing some money. The ownership of the home has still not been decided because the sister is a moron who didn’t hire a lawyer.

The title insurance company is gonna take the hit on this one, in my opinion. The notary should also be charged with a crime, and her bonding company should have to pay out some money as well.
