Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

The moonbats at Moms Demand Action are pressuring Facebook to ban gun-themed fan pages. Because pictures of guns kill people.
This, at least, is the premise of a new gun-control petition, in which the entertainingly neurotic founder of Moms Demand Action, Shannon Watts, complains that "Facebook and Instagram are currently being used to facilitate sales and trades of firearms between private sellers." In consequence, Watts and her cohorts are calling for the company to "ban gun-themed fan pages on the site," technology website VentureBeat confirmed yesterday. Thus far, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a few drearily predictable celebrities, and nearly 100,000 Americans have added their names to the supplication.
To their credit, Facebook appears to be unwilling to go along. For now.
As a spokesman for Facebook noted with barely disguised irritation, "you can't buy things on Instagram and Facebook, nor can you promote the sale or use of weapons in advertising."
Ah, but the moonbats will have you believe that talking about legal behavior will of course lead to illegal activity.
Federal law enforcement sources . . . view Facebook, Instagram, and other social media platforms "as emerging threats for unlawful gun transactions in the United States."
Next up, Michelle Obama views Facebook, Instagram, and other social media platforms as emerging threats for childhood obesity, because people post pictures of their food. And everybody knows that seeing a picture of yummy buffalo wings makes us run right out and eat a plate of yummy buffalo wings. With extra sauce.
Except, you know, it doesn't. Nor do pictures of guns turn otherwise law-abiding citizens into crazed killers. Listening to Nancy Pelosi's speeches on the other hand...
The moonbat moms are losing the public opinion wars. People like the Second Amendment. They like it a lot more than they like a bunch of harpies deciding who can, and cannot post on Facebook.
But the authoritarians won't be easily deterred. They're hell-bent on control. And they're not content to impose their neurotic nonsense on their own children. No, in their minds we are all their charges, and guns are today's bogeymen. Remember Reefer Madness? Yeah, the hysteria promulgated by Moms Demand Action is even more over the top.
Pictures of food don't make you fat. And talkiing about guns won't turn you
into an extra from Pulp Fiction. The anti-gun people believe you
should live in fear. And I do. I live in fear of them.
