A Target-Rich Environment

Have you ever gone dove hunting on a baited field? It's not much fun. There are so many birds, that you don't get a feeling of accomplishment when you bring one down.


Ever shot a deer from a herd that was enclosed in a small barbed-wire fence? Me neither. Hope I never do.

Have you ever gotten a fishing license, gotten your poles, lures, bait and boat together, and then gone to dip a few fish out of the live well at a Red Lobster restaurant? Well, I haven't either. I can't imagine why anyone would want to do that.

But that's what it is going to be like every time I visit this site.
The cool picture of the guy with too many targets to shoot at came from here.

Well, I know what to get you for Christmas this year.

Oh this will be SOOOOO good. Please, please visit it often, and snark it to death. As you said, it is a target-rich "environment". It will be interesting to read your next post on some tid-bit within that site. Like stealing from the blind, too easy.

Oh, and don't keep this to yourself. That would be selfish. Pass it around to your fellow bloggers, let them share in the fun.

Doctor,
I can't WAIT to see which item you pick out.

In the meantime, with only a few exceptions, the Government Is Good website has posts that are so long, they make mine look like snippets. One can get lost in the wholesome, bloat-loving, regulatory fog.

But I shall do my best.

I confess, though I don't share the antipathy towards government you and your co-religionists do, I did think the site was worthy of your scorn and mockery. Government is a bit like a colonoscopy: a pain in the ass but a necessary one.

That being said, you won't see me putting up a "Colonoscopy Is Good" site.
