Our Benevolent Overlords

Monday, March 24th, 2008

Our government, specifically the ATF, has released a request to vendors containing the following (emphasis mine):

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms requires the following items, Purchase Description Determined by Line Item, to the following:

LI 001, EXACT MATCH ONLY – Leatherman Micra Color: Blue – Part number 64340101K Engraved with:… “always think forfeiture”

A “Leatherman”, if you are not familiar, is a Leatherman multi-tool — similar to the once-ubiquitous Swiss Army Knife. The “Micra” requested is a small model suitable for a keychain, presumably to be given out to agents.

How nice of them to confirm where their priorities lie. Never forget — governments always want to tighten their control over their citizens, and it’s a lot easier to control an unarmed populace.

Hat Tip: TJICistan, who has nice idea for a t-shirt.

The Bible on Human Rights

Interesting post from Maynard over at Tammy’s place. A story from the Old Testament, and an interesting take on modern politics.

A manipulative advisor had convinced the King to issue an edict to exterminate the Jews. Upon realizing his error…

7 King Xerxes replied to Queen Esther and to Mordecai the Jew, “Because Haman attacked the Jews, I have given his estate to Esther, and they have hanged him on the gallows.

8 Now write another decree in the king’s name in behalf of the Jews as seems best to you, and seal it with the king’s signet ring ? for no document written in the king’s name and sealed with his ring can be revoked.”

Quick show of hands: Who knows what the new decree was?

Interesting to note that the Jews actually have a holiday to celebrate this.

Go read.
