    “No acknowledgement that VPNs and proxies make physical location irrelevant”


    “Governor Tom Wolf and the State Police…”

    What is the term for this? Hmmm? Oh Yeah, Police State.

    Now that 3D printing has eliminated gun control maybe everyone can now turn their attention to why some areas of this country are besieged with violence, focus on solving that and leave the rest of us alone!

    That Charlie Daniels song has some plot holes in it. The Devil bets “a fiddle of gold” against Johnny’s soul … I play violin and also have some knowledge of material properties, and I’d suggest that it would be difficult to come up with any material less suitable than gold for violin construction. That fiddle would be too heavy to hold up for any length of time. And gold is soft and dense … can’t see getting much if any resonance out of that body.

    No, fiddles are made of wood, and for good reasons.

    Spoken like a true liberty geek, James. 🙂

    I’m sure you’re right about the acoustic properties of golden fiddles. OTOH, you could buy one heck of a lot of nice, resonant wooden fiddles if you melted down that gold one.

    Yeah, I never assumed Johnny was supposed to play the golden fiddle…

    Also, Mona Charon is apparently a very bad person. Disagreeing with the louder feminists is misogynist, everybody knows that…
