Hornswaggler | The culture, the humor, a bit of the sports, not so much the politics, and the workplace distraction

Hornswaggle is an alternate spelling of hornswoggle, an archaic word that means to bamboozle or hoodwink. I take my pronunciation from the late Harvey Korman in "Blazing Saddles" --

"I want rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, conmen, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswagglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass kickers, shit kickers and Methodists!"

Workplace Distraction

Who would have thought we'd see a day when a black man could parade around with an assault rifle, spouting right-wing nonsense, without getting bothered by law enforcement, outside a town hall meeting held by a black president? What a country!

Seriously though, this gun-nut shit is getting a little out of hand.

UPDATE: I don't think gun-toting guy understands what democracy is:

"We will forcefully resist people imposing their will on us through the strength of the majority with a vote."

This guy is to democracy as Michael Bay is to robots.
