Sunday Morning Book Thread 07-01-2012: Independence Day Edition [OregonMuse]

fireworks1-65.jpg

Good morning morons and moronettes. I don't know about you, but I'm still pretty bummed out out SCOTUS putting its stamp of approval on Obamacare. In the wake of this ruling, my question is this: is there anything at all the federal government can be forbidden to do?* Between stretching the use of the Commerce Clause to grotesque lengths and the federal power to levy taxes, that pretty much covers all the bases, doesn't it? Anything that Fedgov want to do can be legally argued to be either the one or the latter.

This makes me sick to my stomach.

*I mean, other than protecting unborn babies from being killed, of course

How to blow stuff up real good

Seriously, what's a 4th of July without fireworks?

Actually, the book is about how to make fireworks, it's not a demolitions manual. Although I suppose that with enough Valu-Rite, it could be.

And this collection of Chinese fireworks art looks like fun. I always remember the instructions on the firecracker wrappers: 'Lay on ground. Light fuse. Get away.' Always cracked me up, for some reason. Didn't say we couldn't throw them at each other, though.

That's all I have for this week. Hey, any of you morons planning on buying the new Nexus 7 tablet? I have to admit it looks pretty cool.


I was asked to mention that Ric Locke, author of Temporary Duty, has inoperable lung cancer. Donations can be made on the small link on the left side of this page.

[Update]:

You might mention that he's soliciting donations for a portable oxygen setup as SS has penalized him for making too much money and the IRS of course has swooped in to tax the proceeds from his book sale.

Thanks to moron Bitter Clinger and all that for the update

As always, book thread tips may be sent to aoshqbookthread@gmail.com

Hopefully, you all have been reading some good stuff this week
