Learn something new every day - I had no idea that you get discounts at a ton of companies if you are an NRA member. how does that make any sense. guess it's a good thing that some of them are dialing back their NRA support now but...

Quote:
Delta and United — two of the largest airlines in the world — have joined a growing list of companies cutting ties with the National Rifle Association amid a growing boycott movement inspired by the Feb. 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School with a legally purchased AR-15 rifle.

Without context, the airlines’ twin announcements on Saturday morning might look trivial: The end of a discount program for NRA members, which few outside the gun rights organization likely knew existed before the boycott efforts.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.b9a1758cd3c6

how many discount programs are there in total in the US for NRA members???

Quote:
But because they follow similar announcements by car rental giants Avis, Hertz and Enterprise, the Best Western hotel chain, the global insurance company MetLife, and more than a dozen other corporations that used to contract, partner or otherwise affiliate with the NRA, the airline’s move is the latest victory for the #BoycottNRA movement — and the latest bad omen for a gun rights lobby that had seemed untouchable less than two weeks ago.

Shit... The FBI really dropped the ball on this one

https://www.infowars.com/fbi-tipster...hoot-place-up/

He said he was gonna be a school shooter in a Youtube comment for crying out loud.

"The FBI also admitted that the Bureau had investigated a school shooting threat made on YouTube last year but could not identify person behind it – despite Nikolas Cruz using his real name to sign the threat which quite literally says “Im going to be a professional school shooter.”


Just pitiful

At least the right-wing's campaign to discredit the FBI means they no longer have to pretend that each successive shooter was actually a team of elite commandos with inexplicably sketchy marksmanship abilities made up for by a real talent for convincing hundreds of eye-witnesses that some alternate universe Brad Renfro did it.

It's literally just cuz of Trump.

Conservatives didn't call out US intelligence agencies for being authoritarian institutions and professional liars when the CIA lied about having evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq to make the Bush administration's war more palatable. Or when the CIA flooded poor LA minority neighbourhoods with crack. Or when the FBI led a smear campaign against Martin Luther King. Or when the FBI violated the civil liberties of many Arab- and Muslim-Americans. Or when the CIA helped overthrow governments in Ecuador, Guatemala, Congo, etc.

No, it's only now that they're investigating Trump that you have Sean Hannity going on about how the FBI are secret police that could knock down the doors of Americans in the middle of the night. They didn't care when they were doing it to powerless people for decades. But now that they are targeting "their guy" in the civil war amongst U.S. elites, they must be stopped. Even though the case against Trump has been totally by-the-book so far, because they know that they can't get away with the same shit they can when they target powerless people, and any minor slip-up will be used to discredit the case (right-wing media made a fuss about a random FBI agent texting his girlfriend that he doesn't like Trump... as if carrying out your job in an unbiased manner means that you can't have personal opinions like every other citizen does).

Of course, there are elements of the right that have always been anti-intelligence agencies, anti-law enforcement, etc. Mostly the fringe conspiracy right. But they're against them for all the wrong reasons, namely that they think they're controlled by the lizard people or the Jews or whatnot, and not because they are instruments of the corporate-state complex to accomplish all of the shady shit that needs to be done to keep state capitalism alive with plausible deniability for elected leaders. I mean, we even saw with TOC how he would wear his anti-state, anti-law enforcement, anti-spook hat when it suited him, but as soon as some black guy was shot by a cop, the cop was always blameless.

I always find it funny how the right says that people need guns to protect themselves from the tyranny of the state and police, but there is pretty much no case of conflict between civilians and cops where they don't side with the cops.

Far be it from me to go all Tiananmen Square over BP pies, but they're actually not too bad as far as service station offerings go.

We're not exactly talking about your plastic wrapping Mrs. Mac's after sixteen hours in a heating unit, here.

Bringing the topic full circle here, you'd think that mass shootings and gas station pies in New Zealand have nothing to do with each other, but you'd be wrong:

https://www.thepost.nz/articles/man-...aiuku-robbery/

Quote:
Man arrested following Z Waiuku robbery

At about 2am this morning, 25 February a man entered the Z service station in Waiuku, presented what was described as a silver handgun at the staff member and asked for pies.

The man was described as approximately 30yrs, wearing pajama pants and no top. He had tattoos on his chest and arms.
