HuffPo Isn't Totally Worthless

While I may think that Arianna Huffington is a parasite whose political leanings change with the wind and that her Huffington Post is usually full of tripe, it does have its uses. For example, in a story about a local Tea Party group, I found out that they are having a machine gun social.

I have shot at Bear Arms a number of times and it is a really nice range. Moreover, the prices for shooting the MP5 are cheaper than a lot of places that I've been. Sadly, I won't be able to attend it as I'll be at the Gun Rights Policy Conference in Orlando on that day.

It is instructive to read the comments. For people who profess peace and love and gun control, they are amazingly violent in their thoughts and rhetoric.

From Sushigirl:
Oh how quaint. I have an idea, blindfold all of them and let them shoot away.
Actually I don't mean that, I don't want anyone to be hurt. But how stupid can these people be. Disgusting.
From FredSanders who has 1910 fans which must mean he comments a lot:
I hope they all blow themselves away defending each other from each other.
 From Cacey with the tagline "ignore rudeness, honor discussion":
How boring is Asheville if this is the best fund raiser they came up with. A boring event for obviously boorish people.
You get the idea. I'm glad Cacey thinks Asheville is boring because it will mean one less tourist clogging the streets with their Obama bumpersticker-covered Priuses.


  1. I resent that. The Prius handles like a dream and is very pleasant to drive.

  2. Huffpo should be judged by the same criteria as other 'newspapers'. Once it is understood that the content is pure BS the only question remaining is: Is it good for lining the birdcage or wrapping fish? No
    Hence the Huffpo truly is worthless. IMHO
    ( except of course for the HUGE entertainment value, we all need a good laugh from time to time )
