Thursday Highlights

Well, after a good almost full day of skiing … my injured knee stiffened. Kids are having a blast which is the important thing.

  1. Obamacare wins an award.
  2. And it losing (apparently) the hard left.
  3. Bio oil from a different source.
  4. Hmmm.
  5. Examining the lack-of-logic behind  the thoughts of those desiring to ban guns.
  6. A case for which shooting drones (as suggested by that Colorado town) makes perfect sense.
  7. Seems to me, when you discuss other’s sins … you should remember 1 Timothy 1:15.
  8. He’s not saying that … he’s saying higher taxes lead to greater economic growth. That’s not right, but that’s what he thinks.
  9. China, children, and economics.
  10. Climate models.
  11. Star Trek mocked.

    So much for respect for private property by the right.

    What higher taxes? Sounds like the premise here is that the only time America had freedom was the few precious years of Bush II.

    I see harassment is fine in the eyes of the left.

    I don’t understand your reply in the context.

    There is no right to not be observed or photographed while on public property. Let’s say you are legally hunting in a public space, I’m legally hiking. Say I want to take a picture of you hunting to show the world how cruel hunting is. Do you have a right to shoot me? I think not. If I’m flying my drone in a public place why would you have a right to shoot it.

    Suppose I make a lot of noise to scare away the animals you’re trying to kill? Again you have no right to shoot me. If you have a few hundred or thousand acres of private property to use as a private hunting reserve, you’re free to do that. Or if you have areas’ approved for hunting in public space you can have that activity protected by law. But a right to do things in public and not be photographed and judged by others doesn’t exist.

  4. Boonton,

    There is no right to not be observed or photographed while on public property.

    You’re being intentionally stupid. This is not “being photographed”. It’s not being stupid. The intention was harrasement. To scare the game away.

    Suppose I make a lot of noise to scare away the animals you’re trying to kill? Again you have no right to shoot me.

    Why don’t you try that sometimes. Make sure your self-defense skills are up to snuff ’cause you’re going to need them. And don’t look to the law. That rural sheriff almost certainly hunts, realizes that there is a deer overpopulation problem and will probably look the other way.

    Look. If you go to a fishing stream where a lot of people are fly fishing and setup a outboard motor attached to a stump and run it in the water. You’re going to get the crap beaten out of you or your tires slashed and rightfully so I offer. This is because being an asshole gets you treated like one. Likewise if you’re flying drones low to scare away game near people in duck blinds and while deer hunting you’re going do get your drone shot down. And again, rightfully so I offer. It’s not public property/photography, it’s that harassment is not righteous and won’t be defended.

  5. It’s not being stupid. The intention was harrasement. To scare the game away.

    How is that harrasement? Unless an area of land is exclusive to hunting because it is private land or it is exclusively set aside for only hunting there is no right to demand that others make it easier for you to hunt on mixed use land that isn’t yours.

    If you go to a fishing stream where a lot of people are fly fishing and setup a outboard motor attached to a stump and run it in the water….

    You seem to be shocked that a public body of water could possibly have two different types of people who seek to engage in mutually exclusive recreational activities on it. Most jurisdictions, though, require licenses for both fishing and boating (esp. speed boating) and that mixed use activity is regulated.

    This is because being an asshole gets you treated…

    Trust me, when a right to treat assholes like assholes is enshrined in the Constitution my name is first on the list to take advantage of it. Till then you’re not getting it unless I get to have it first.
