The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

New Jersey is ground-zero in the destruction of any sense of unity in America. The new governor is recklessly creating a "California on the Atlantic" with hare-brained schemes for sanctuary status, onerous increases in taxes, insane healthcare mandates, and worst of all his first but not last attempt at gutting the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution. Unfortunately for New Jersey, the legislature is reliably Democrat, which means reliably progressive and anti-freedom.

What he and his progressive cronies are doing is creating a two-tiered system that has clear delineations between the haves and the have-nots. The governor and the legislature will be protected by gun-toting security, and they will not be restricted to 10-round magazines. But you and I will be, and the storm troopers, with help from the state-controlled health-care apparatus, will gleefully harass previously law-abiding gun owners, and confiscate and arrest and incarcerate at the least provocation.

New Jersey and Gun Control

The gun control conundrum will continue ad infinitum. But what is happening in New Jersey should frighten anyone -- gun owner or not. NJS102 will most likely be affirmed by the Democrat senate majority in the NJ legislature. The NJ Assembly has already passed the following:

A1217, which would create restraining orders in the state allowing family members and others to ask a judge to have a person's guns seized and ban them from buying weapons for up to a year.
A2757, which would require all private gun sales in the state to go through a licensed dealer who can perform an additional background check at the point of sale.
A2759, which would create an outright ban in the state on possessing armor-piercing bullets.
A2761, which would ban magazines in the state that hold more than 10 rounds, with some exceptions.


As if I needed another reason to look for another place to live.

Treacher as movie reviewer....
The Final Act of 'The Final Year' Is the Best Comedy of 2018
But then, in the blink of an eye, the entire tone of the film changed. In an instant, it became much, much less difficult to watch. Suddenly, all the arrogance and pomposity of the previous 72 minutes was worth it. Suddenly, I was laughing out loud and clapping.

Why?

Explain to me why we tolerate the United Nations. And please use small words...I didn't understand the first nine times.
A Week of Infamy at the United Nations
When Syria ascended to the role of presidency of the United Nations Conference on Disarmament for one month on Monday, Robert Wood, the United States ambassador to the conference, called it “one of the darkest days in the history of the Conference on Disarmament.”

The week at the U.N. did not get better.

Syria assumed the role of presidency of the conference, despite committing the war crime of deploying chemical weapons against civilians, by virtue of its place in the alphabet — it followed Switzerland. The New York Times explained that the reason for the rotating scheme was “to prevent major powers dominating the forum.”

It's patently offensive that Syria is allowed any position of honor or authority in the United Nations. In a more sane international peace organization, there would be a stool in the back of the chambers where the Syrian ambassador would be seated, wearing a dunce cap and a ball gag. And periodically he would be pelted with rotten vegetables.
