So I’m late to the party on this blog post, but hey, you might not have seen it either. Good Ol’ Sly has no problem making money acting like pro-gun Rambo guy, but it turns out that he thinks the Second Amendment is apparently a bad idea
“It [2nd Amendment] has to be stopped, and someone really has to go on the line, a certain dauntless political figure, and say, ‘It’s ending, it’s over, all bets are off. It’s not 200 years ago, we don’t need this anymore, and the rest of the world doesn’t have it. Why should we?”
Sylvester Stallone on Access Hollywood, June 8, 1998
Gee, Sly, maybe the reason we are the only democracy to have had only one civil war is because the people are armed and it’s not so easy for the government to just take over since we have the capability of fighting back if we need too.
Yet, even as he is spouting off about how bad the second amendment is, he went and got a concealed carry permit. That’s practicing what you preach now isn’t it?
As far as ‘the rest of the world’, the Swiss require every man of military age who is either on active, reserve or home guard they are required to keep a gun and ammo in their homes for national defense. Guess that means the Swiss, who have one of the lowest crime rates in the world must be doing something right.
Stick to acting, Sly, at least you are halfway decent at it. Just don’t do any Rambo movies since you are so opposed to guns.
Yes, Nancy and crew can’t seem to give us a congressional budget that isn’t as bloated as Ted Kennedy after an evening out with the boys, but she is giving the House a whole new style of cafeteria food.
I guess when she said that change was needed in Congress she was only talking about the food.
The processed cheese has been replaced with brie. The Jell-O has made way for raspberry kiwi tarts and mini-lemon blueberry trifles. Meatloaf has moved over for mahi mahi and buns have been shunted aside in favor of baguettes
I’m sure this is more along the lines of the way she is used to eating at home since as we all know the Democrats are the ‘party of the working class’ and all us working class people eat mahi mahi for lunch every day.
They just finished updating the House gym with some help from Gold’s Gym, and it only costs them $20 a month to work out there. Funny, I don’t ever remember my gym membership only being $20 a month – has it dropped recently and no one told me?
Face it, the Government doesn’t really give a crap about the people. When they are able to vote themselves pay raises, benefits, and perks which are then paid for by us taxpayers why should they care? It’s not their money being spent and most of them will go home and no one will know about all the wonderful things they voted for themselves.
So, while most of us struggle to watch what we eat and maybe be able to go work out after all the bills are paid, you can rest easy knowing that your congressman is having mahi mahi for lunch and working out at a gym that costs less than 1/3rd of what you are paying for yours and isn’t as crowded in the afternoon either.
Thanks Nancy, for showing us what true leadership is all about. They were given the helm because they said the people voted for change, I don’t think any of the people that voted for these fools thought that this was the change they were talking about.

My misread on the article about the House of Reps gym. Apparently the $20 a month is for the Congressional assistants to use their gym – yes, the Congressional Assistants have a seperate gym from the Congressmen and women. Now isn’t that special? I bet the Congressmen/women don’t have to pay at all then.
Thanks to MeezerMama for pointing out that I can’t read for dog-poop
So I dropped my wife off at the airport on Saturday. She flew home to visit with her family for a week while I stay here and take care of the cats and do some of my own stuff.
Now, I always do the shopping, this is important to know for what comes next, so I always go to the store with a list that we both make and get all the things on it. I then put them in the basket, check them all out at the register and drive my plunder home. So I am well aware of what food we have because I went and got it in the first place.
I was talking with my wife, Intuition, on the phone when she landed in Ohio and it went something like this:
Intuition: Just wanted to let you know I got here just fine. The plane landed a few minutes early.
Me: OK, that’s good. Have you met up with your folks yet?
Intuition: Not yet, I’m still at the gate. Have you eaten dinner yet? There’s some pot roast in the fridge.
Me: Yea, I know. Remember, we just made it the other day.
Intuition: Well, I’m just saying. There’s also some hot dogs in there too.
Me: Oh, really… wow, did I pick those up at the store too?
Intuition: You are so lucky I can’t reach you right now.
Apparently being male and married means I have no memory anymore 😀
