Pretty Routine Tuesday

I was raised in a small town where this type of reporting was very common. i.e. "Mrs. Johnson was spotted getting her hair done at Maggies Clip & Go", while Mr. Jacob's dog chased the mailman, Ralph, for 2 blocks."
I like it. It's a lot more entertaining than the usual gloom and doom.

Pretty Routine Tuesday

Apparently you care. Not only did you read the article(s) but you took the time to post and complain about it.

Kansas Legislature approves bill allowing silencers for outdoor recreation

33 states already allow the use of silencers. When the silencer was invented it was marketed as the "gentleman's way of target shooting". However, don't forget, the possession of a silencer without a federal permit is a felony with a max sentence of 10 years.

I just love this explanation from the Western Criminology Review:
"Professionally-made silencers may screw into a threaded barrel, and continue to allow the use of the gun’s sights (which is not possible with things like pillows)."

Do you think Kansas legislative staff should be included in a proposed pay cut for state employees?

This is the legislature Kansans voted for. Those straight ticket Rebublican voters are getting exactly what they wanted. "I don't care if (insert name here) is a scum sucking, racist, SOB, he's a Republican and that's good enough for me".
We are going to have to live with this until the next elections. Unfortunatly, the majority will do it again..and again.. and again. If you want a better life, best make plans to move to another state.

Gas stations' switch to summer fuel could mean a rise in gas prices

It didn't go up for either of those reason. Gasoline only makes up for 20% of a barrell of crude.

Excellent post. Liberty has used the "inflation tax" arguement as a catch all for any economic/commodity fluctuations. He basically regurgitates Ron Paul.

Gas stations' switch to summer fuel could mean a rise in gas prices

Liberty_One states: "The problem is your government is taxing the heck out of you through inflation.".... This statement is blatantly wrong, misleading and makes no sense.
The current tax rate on gas is about .50/gal. The feds take about $.20, the states (which varies) take around $.30. I'm not an economist so I won't make absurd generalizations about inflation (which is actually lower than last year) or the value of the dollar. Suffice it to say, the tax rate was almost identical when gas was closer to $2.00/gal. There are many factors in play here, but the most influential are commodity investors speculating on a price increase due to the unrest in the Middle East (lower production and supply disruption).
