In other news, it looks like Ironic Vaping Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) may have used campaign funds to pay for his kids' school lunches. Hunter has voted against increased funding for school lunches. You may recall that Hunter's campaign credit card was also used to pay for numerous video game purchases and a trip to Disney.

Meanwhile, former president George W. Bush is reportedly hitting the campaign trail to help Senate Republicans. The GOP is at a point where Bush may actually be more popular than they are.

Finally, a group of Republican delegates are trying to change the rules so they can deny Donald Trump the GOP nomination. Trump has already called the effort "illegal."

Have a good weekend and happy Father's Day to any fathers reading this.

    I found a rather interesting factoid when I followed a link from a post by a gun owner. The link was designed to gunsplain to everyone the difference between automatic and semi automatic rifle. What I found was a site that said the difference between emptying a full clip of ammunition on fully automatic versus emptying the same clip on semi automatic was …..wait for it,,,,, 4 seconds. Case closed. No one needs this kind of weaponry for self defense or hunting or anything else unless you are facing an army or a drug cartel or one very mean dear.
    That it is more convenient for shooting dear is hardly sufficient to overcome the terrible danger to first graders, movie goers, people at a nightclub, basically anyone from this kind of weaponry being available to anyone maniac off the street. As this person admitted, handguns are more effective for self defense . The contention that changes in gun laws would have no real effect is contradicted by the facts. The experience in Australia was that a ban on such weaponry was very effective, indeed.
