Judge Not 14 ► The Gun In Granny's Garden

Unretouched pic of Judge Andy
The issue of guns was still foremost on Judge Andy's mind this week, just like the last several weeks. Ever since the Newtown Massacre, in fact. Few other issues seem to engage him these days.

Meanwhile, the Judge Not Desk required no additional staffing, despite the fact that Judge Andy increased his output by 33% over last week. While it sounds like a lot, Larry (or is it Robert?), the child I hired to do this job, has improved considerably and was able to handle the increased Gun Nuttery. With Larry (or Robert) doing so well, the Temp I hired last week (who also has a name, but why should I bother learning it? She's a temp) was able to pick up the slack.

Take it away, Judge Andy:

Targeting the Gun Lobby ► An Aunty Em Editorial

Ever since it became apparent in the aftermath of the Newtown Massacre that 'Merka was fed up, and a consensus was developing to finally take some action on gun violence, Gun Nuts have been muttering, stuttering, and fluttering in the hopes of distracting the public conversation away from the human lives destroyed by guns

When President Obama sat down this week and signed several Executive Orders that might save a few human lives here and there, the Gun Nuts lost whatever was left of their collective minds. And, the Mainstream Media hasn't helped. The 'Merkin people have been led to believe that a Presidential Executive Order is an extraordinary thing. Yet, it isn't at all. Why can't we have nice things? Because "Sloppy Reporting Misleads the Public on Obama’s Executive Orders."

Fox "News" Spin Cycle ► Episode 34

This week's Fox "News" Spin Cycle is similar to last week's in that it's dedicated to guns, guns, and more guns because that was virtually the only news this week that was deemed interesting enough for Fox "News"to report on.

The steady drip, drip, drip on Fox in support of Gun Rights Nuts, unthinking Libertarians, and Second Amendment Advocates becomes almost like poetry, or a steady refrain. I'm sure I've heard it somewhere before. I can name that tune in 3 notes.

Judge Not 13 ► Clinging To His Guns

For the 1st full week of the New Year, Judge Andy doubled his output over last week, causing considerable problems at the Judge Not Desk. 

If you recall, dear reader, when (several weeks ago) Judge Andy reduced his output to a mere 10 posts, I decided to fire all the Judge Not interns and hire a child instead. Larry (or is it Robert? I really need to remember his name, or hire somebody whose name I can remember) was being trained slowly. However, as Vice President Biden's Gun Control Task Force met with more stakeholders this week, Judge Andy became more and more unhinged. Suddenly, and without any advance warning, he doubled his output and Larry (Robert?) couldn't keep up. I was forced to hire a Temp at a much higher rate than it would have cost had I kept the interns in the first place.
