What else needs to be said?

I found this while surfing the intarwebz tubes.  It seems to cover it nicely.

Out of Work for Now

Tough time ahead at Casa de la Simple Man.  My job went away at the hospital I worked at.  Although I am appealing, it takes a long time with  many steps.  The long and short is I need to go through this process as my employer is the only healthcare system in the very large county I live in that provides mental health services, my line of work.    The nearest competitors are well over an hour away.  This didn't pose a problem in the past but now is a concern with the way the world is turning.  An hour in a car translates to forever on foot in a state that will not issue a CCW permit unless you have been murdered already,  you gotta love New Jersey.

Sparse Postings

Sorry for the sparse posting lately.  I have been very active on a twitter campaign for the NJ2AS (New Jersey Second Amendment Society) of which I am an active member and on FaceBook.  I was with them when I went to the Trenton hearings.  The very same hearing where a several members were thrown out for speaking, the people broke out into the Pledge of Allegiance and several of our senators were caught on open mic calling for confiscation.  I have picked up a new to me S&W 40ve I'll report on.  I will be Back.

Also today I lost my job.  Anyone need a psychiatric nurse that can also weld, work on cars, swing a hammer and shoot?

If you are on twitter please follow @NJ2AS

Returned from Trenton

A Simple Man has turned from Trenton.  This was an eye opening day.  Today was a Senate committee with debate on gun citizen control measure.  The hearing was scheduled to start at 9am and committee vote at 4pm.  After arriving we were informed debate wouldn't begin until noon and voting would be 4pm.  Also half of the bills to be debated were put of until this Thursday.  So time for debate was halved and an extra day added.  How many people can take off twice in one week and on such short notice. I feared that this would be a Soviet Kangaroo court and sadly I was correct.  The outcome was clearly predetermined and the debate was merely a public relations exercise.  All manner of constitutional arguments were made against the bills to no avail.  We will see what happens in the full Senate but I am very pessimistic at this point.

Today was a lesson in how revolutions start.
