The Muslim cartoon flap

Over on Decrepit Old Fool, I commented on DOF's "Eat My Shorts" entry regarding the fallout from the publishing and republishing of the cartoon in a Danish and other papers. Some good points are made by DOF, who is a friend of mine. In fact, he's such a good friend that I can tell him to "eat my shorts" when I disagree with him, and we laugh together. DOF is a gun-totin', meat eatin' libertarian (well, I guess he owns a gun, I know he certainly isn't very enamored of gun control,) but he is a smart dude. He's sometimes wrong about stuff that that I'm always right about :) but then, I could be wrong about that.

Anyway, GUYK posted a reply which I think is a reply to my comments, so I've asked for some clarification from him. We'll see if he answers, but from just glancing at his blog, I don't think we'll see eye-to-eye on a lot.

GUYK is a smart guy; I wouldn't underestimate him. But you are right not to hold your breath until you and he campaign for the same president.

"DOF is a gun-totin', meat eatin' libertarian"

I like that! I'll have to add it to my list of oversimplifications. My current favorite (from James Old Guy) is "Another retarded f*ing liberal with all the answers". Someday I'm going to put the whole collection on my blog as a set of rotating tag lines.

For the record: I favor strict gun control, and I endorse concealed carry plus real self-defense laws. Since I am right about everything, this makes both the anti-gun lobby and the NRA only half-right.

Thanks for the clarification of your stance on gun control. I'm not even going to try to figure it out!
