Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics

Those cretins over at Err Amerika just can't stop lying to you. Wolfman had his radio tuned to them during a recent visit (what? not enough aggravation in your life? blood pressure too low?) and we heard the old "10 children are killed each day by handguns" line in one of their PSAs.

Too bad we didn't get the phone number, or we would have called to ask: since when are 18- and 19-year-old gang-bangers "children"?

It never ceases to amaze us how the lunatic left can contort things around to couch the debate in intellectually dishonest terms. The same thing happened recently with the execution of convicted multiple murderer Stanley "Tookie" Williams when some fool asked what was to be gained by "executing a children's book author".

The esteemed Neal Boortz gave a good partial answer to that one when he said "the preservation of the rule of law". But even he seemed to have missed the intellectual dishonesty behind the framing of the question. The State of California did not execute "a children's book author"; Williams was not convicted of authoring children's books. He was convicted on four counts of cold-blooded murder, for which he never showed the slightest sign of remorse.

I'm shocked and awed "Kalifornication" had the freaking agates to zilch Williams, since most of its goatee-bearded, coke-bottle-glassed, effeminate-voiced, dope-smoking population and their boyfriends to this day whimper about the "rights" of "poor, oppressed, victims of society" that commit mass-murder.

Thanks, but the prospects aren't very good. :-)

(Where are we all headed, and why are we in a handbasket?)
