Hurrah!


I finally got my LIFETIME license to carry a concealed weapon.

The end of the four year pilgrimage to the police department.

No more money, no more wasted time while needless paperwork is filled out and ignored, no more fingerprints and stupid FBI checks while some bureaucratic newbe rushes down to check 35 year old files only to find out that there is a file on me because the FBI ran a security clearance on me. No more talking to smarmy civilian employees of the police department who don't know what's going on.

May you put it to good use! Congratulations warren!

The Merry Widow said...

Jackie get hers yet?
Yeah, and after reading Florian's latest post, you may need it!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Jay Tuch said...

If thats a pic of the concealed weapon, Mae West would like to meet you.

Toad734 said...

Only if it was as hard as you say. If 23 year old, non citizen, college students can get guns that can kill 30 people in under 2 minutes, I harldy doubt that it was as difficult to get a permit as you say it was.

nanc said...

and if amphibious creatures had the brains to fill a thimble, they would know just about anyone can get a conceal/carry for only certain periods of time.

warren NEVER has to file for one again as he's waited patiently through the bureaucratic nonsense afforded also to nitwits such as yourself - why don't you go get your own c.c. and challenge him to a duel?

go back from whence you came before a toad princess kisses your bumpy behind and turns you into a slithering creature with NO legs?

nanc said...

that said, CONGRATULATIONS WARREN!

Warren said...

Thank you FJ, I have put it to good use in the past and will continue to do so.

Yes TMW, Jackie is set for life also.

Thank you Nanc.

Jay, my license says, "on my person or in my vehicle, any weapon that I legally posses. I'm keeping it under a tarp in the back of the van! May West came from around these parts! ;^)

Well Toad, I looked at your blog and realized, (heck!), you just ain't very bright!

A man once said, "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Maybe you recognize that quote, (if you haven't destroyed your short term memory with drugs), I got it from your profile.

It seems you live in the peoples republic of Chicago. You know, where the powers that be, your masters, don't allow the simple shits that live there to carry concealed weapons, (well at least the law abiding ones!)

Don't you feel real safe there in chi town where there are no guns, except for the criminals and the cops, (but I'm being redundant}.

Now I usually don't harp on the way that people speak and write but you statement reveals your mental confusion.

"I harldy doubt that it was as difficult to get a permit as you say it was.

Would you kindly tell me what the hell that means? Does it mean that you doubt that it was as difficult as I attested to in my post, or since you "harldy" [sic] doubted it, you have invented a new word to describe a new-age emotion among the retarded leftists in this country?

Perhaps you meant 'hardly' doubted it, which would indicate, (since you used a double negative), that you agree with the veracity of my post.

I have to admit, although the process is a pain in the ass and probably way to difficult for the typical troglodyte cave dweller in the windy city, it was more of an annoyance than anything else.

nanc said...

warren - toad's one of mike's trolls who will now call out all his other (2) troll friends to infiltrate this and other sites - he did it to me a few weeks ago at curtains.

and, he has some real lulus...

nanc said...

why, he's at my "because they can" post at curtains right now!

benosilly said...

congrats warren, jay beat me to the punch-line.

nanc- mike?

nanc said...

this mike, bensosilly...

Eyes said...

Congratulations! I don't think we have such a program in the great state of Texas... 5 year intervals... :>D :>D

Dora said...

Just wondering, if you become committed to a mental institution for some reason, or you are declared a danger to yourself and/or others, does the lifetime permit continue on, as if nothing happened?

If so, that is scary...

nanc said...

please shut up, dora - thank you ahead of time - you're a peach.

Dora said...

What's a matter, Nanc? It's not a hard question. I wasn't implying anything, I was just asking how this works in general. I think it's an important question, don't you? Or do you think that mentally ill people and people declared a danger to themselves and/or others should be able to have lifetime concealed weapons permits?

nanc said...

Young William: "I can fight."

Malcolm Wallace: "I know. I know you can fight. But it's our wits that make us men."

Dora said...

Your protestations about your intelligence and my lack thereof are analogous to this scene, from an American classic:

Waiter: Would monsieur care for another bottle of the Chateau Latour?

Steve: Ah yes - but no more 1966. Let's splurge! Bring us some fresh wine! The freshest you've got - this year! No more of this old stuff.

Waiter: Oui monsieur.

Steve: He doesn't realise he's dealing with sophisticated people here. [Steve realizes with horror what is on Marie's plate] Marie, now just stay calm. Stay calm. Don't look down, don't look down! Look up! Just keep your eyes up and keep them that way, OK.

Steve, to the waiter: Waiter - there are snails on her plate. Now get them out of here before she sees them! Look away, just look away, keep your eyes that way! You would think that in a fancy restaurant at these prices you could keep the snails off the food! There are so many snails there you can't even see the food! Now take those away and bring us those melted cheese sandwich appetizers you talked me out of!

Waiter: Oui, monsieur.

Steve: Can you believe this? First, they didn't have the bamboo umbrellas for the wine, and now snails on the food! Two boobs! That's what he takes us for!

nanc said...

of course it would be a great question if it didn't come from such a multi-faceted person such as yourself.

facetious: "Main Entry: fa·ce·tious
Pronunciation: f&-'sE-sh&s
Function: adjective
Etymology: Middle French facetieux, from facetie jest, from Latin facetia

1 : joking or jesting often inappropriately : WAGGISH -just being facetious-

2 : meant to be humorous or funny : not serious -a facetious remark-

aren't you supposed to have class?

nanc said...

it's too early in the day to be imbibing, dora. put the wine away - and it is never a good idea to drink alone...

Dora said...

You're starting to sound paranoid, Nancipoo. Calm down. I was seriously asking a question. And you're all jumping all over me at this early hour.

nanc said...

i wouldn't jump all over you if you were a "tramp"oline!

Dora said...

Woah woah, you were the one who admitted to having been a "bad girl" previously. Born again or not, you're not one to talk. :)

But I guess that's Nanc's default insult to women she disagrees with -- probably it's something she thinks is a grave insult, calling someone a "tramp." Like some people think calling others Jewish is an insult. I can only imagine what you think a "tramp" is -- prolly every woman in NYC is a tramp by your defintion.

Anyway, must be easier to go to your default insults than to use them brain cells god gave ya and answer my question.

nanc said...

this is warren's post - he does not suffer fools gladly - you are a pest and have a difficult time staying away from people who don't want you around - it is evident EVERYWHERE you go...well, with the exception of your own pitiful blog - you won't make any friends here, little girl - some of us have already reared ungrateful children - you don't want to learn anything from us - so why do you keep coming around?

i can think of approximately 15 people who are either bored to tears with you or avoid anywhere you post - why do you do this?

not that we don't appreciate dissenting voices - we'd just like for them to be coherent. is your side incapable of coherency?

Dora said...

Why all the insults, Nanc? If you want to set a good example for the youth, why piling on the crapheap? It's amazing to me.

Tell me, Nanc, which part of my question was incoherent?

nanc said...

because you only ask questions you know the answers to. you already know the laws vary from state to state. you already know the answer.

c'mon, dora - i worked with attorneys for a goodly portion of my career - they almost NEVER ask a question they do not know the answer to.

warren's in indiana - tell us the conceal/carry laws for that state. show us you are more than a sit-n-spinmeistress.

nanc said...

dang! i thought for sure tmw was going to drop off a meat loaf recipe here this morning - now, i must go hunt her down...

Dora said...

So my question was not incoherent, you just decided to assume some BS so you could insult me. Classy.

I don't know the answer. I thought someone who claims to be as knowledgable as this Warren person might know off the top of his head.

I'm also obviously addressing the prudence of these lifetime licenses, and asking if there's any check/balance on them. These checks and balances are important -- cuz you know crazy people sometimes do crazy things with guns.

nanc said...

yes, that's why they're called crazy! but they'll get guns one way or another and carry them regardless of the laws.

people like warren are law abiding people - there is no reason for him to NOT be able to c/c.

The Merry Widow said...

I don't live in Indiana, so don't ask me.
Nanc-Here is the Confetti Meatloaf Recipe you wanted;

1 # gr. chuck
1#gr. turkey
1 egg
Italian Style Breadcrumbs
Spicy Spagetti Seasoning from Tone
1 onion chopped
1 red/green/yellow/or orange bell pepper chopped
2-3 Roma tomatoes chopped

Mix all ingedients except breadcrumbs, add crumbs to produce proper consistency. Shape into loaf in Pam sprayed loaf pan, top with can of tomato sauce, or use 1 1/2 cups of your favorite spaghetti sauce. Bake on 350 for an hour, test for doneness.
I prefer the green peppers, they make it look more festive!
Enjoy!

tmw

Dora said...

I never said Warren shouldn't be able to carry a gun.

yes, that's why they're called crazy! but they'll get guns one way or another and carry them regardless of the laws.

Ah yes, the same way that people will have sex one way or another, regardless of whether you give them sex ed or condoms or contraceptives, right? :)

Elmer's Brother said...

tmw nanc's internet is out I spoke to her directly

she suggested I ask you if you have a recipe for dolphin

once while deep sea fishing for tuna in Guam I caught a dolphin....I just have two words tobasco sauce

Elmer's Brother said...

that was after I et the baby seal

Elmer's Brother said...

no it's regardless of whether your webcam and credit card machine work dora

The Merry Widow said...

EB-I tried calling both her house and cell phones. It's ALL out right now.

tmw
What does baby seal taste like? Would it make decent sausage? Or is it too fatty?

Elmer's Brother said...

I made a tasty seal soup, but it did have quite a bit of fat

The Merry Widow said...

Nanc is back in contact.
I would imagine baby seal would be a delicate flavor, you would want to use ground turkey or chicken with it.

tmw

nanc said...

baby seal is great! tastes like california condor! bigger bones to pick through though...

The Merry Widow said...

Have you ever had eagle? I only have access to ospreys here, and they taste fishy!
Shark isn't bad, but it needs to be cooked and eaten immediately, the uric acid in the muscle causes it to break down rather quickly.
Now tortoise is another treat here, more like chicken than sea turtle(that's fishy too!)

tmw

nanc said...

nope - only scrambled eaglet eggs benedict arnold...with salsa.

The Merry Widow said...

Anyway, what do you think of the meatloaf recipe?

tmw

nanc said...

i want nancpop to become meatloaf king so will give the recipe to him - of course, he always has to add his own special touches - and you know men - if some is good, more should be better!

i love meatloaf sannies - one of my great aunts - who, btw, was nearly blind most of her life - used to make the most wonderful meatloafs this side of heaven and bring one to our house when i was little - JUST FOR SANNIES!

nanc said...

p.s. - i always used the italian seasoned breadcrumbs...mmm good...

Elmer's Brother said...

uh meatloaf makes me ill unless it's made from polar bear now there's a treat

The Merry Widow said...

Nanc-My Mom used cracker crumbs, and my Dad and I would make war on each other if there wasn't enough for a sammich each!
EB-Try a gr. chuck and gr. turkey mix, it might "set" better in you delicate stomach!

tmw

nanc said...

what type of egg do you use in your recipe, tmw darlin'?

The Merry Widow said...

Osprey. If it's too small. use 2.

tmw

The Merry Widow said...

We have a nest about 3 blocks away.

tmw

nanc said...

mmmmm...sounds yummy~!

wonder where sybil got off to?

dayam - i hate ending questions with prepositions!

Dora said...

Oh yeah, excuse me, I was out. You know, living my real life. Cuz I have a life outside of blogging, and my blog is not the sum of my existence. Unlike some *cough* ...

Guess no one cares about whether mentally ill people continue to have their lifetime permits... don't come crying to me when this backfires.

Elmer's Brother said...

did someone hear something?

my wife just made meatloaf with ground turkey....it's so wrong....yuck

Elmer's Brother said...

sort of like people who think that we care whether they come and go

Dora said...

*dora's boyfriend is making her delicious thai food* mmmmmm muahahaha *dora scoffs at your meatloaf*

Elmer's Brother said...

it's a sure sign of NPD...we're supposed to stop and wait for them to grace our presence again...(tapping foot waiting for her grace to grace our presence again)

Dora said...

Trent: So where to eat? You like Thai?
Homer: Tie good. You like shirt?
Homer brings home Thai food from Thai Palace Restaurant.
Homer: Marge, this is Thai food. From now on, I want it morning, noon, and night.

Dora said...

EB - nanc asked! I answered. i'm nice like that sometimes. :)

Elmer's Brother said...

sybil is dora??? huh

nanc said...

so you do admit to mpd?

Dora said...

Sure, why not?! hahaha

The Merry Widow said...

EB-You know, MPD...me/dora/faith/thomas...
Tell your schweetie to mix gr. chuck and gr. turkey, half and half. You know the neat thing about meatloaf? Sammiches!

tmw

Dora said...

Dora: What do you think about meatloaf?

Dora's BF: You know I hate it...it's just gross...dry...and just pure meat, it's kinda heavy...


*I've never made meat loaf in my life.

And i'm telling you, Thomas -- definitely a totally different person.

nanc said...

yes, at least thomas makes sense once in a great while.

ground, hot and spicy pork and beef meatloaf - now, there's a treat! put some cheese and extra minced peppers in it and wrap it with bacon and cook it slowly on the 'que!

Elmer's Brother said...

let's swap a different recipe please

nanc said...

okay - i want your wife's italian sausage soup recipe - like they make at olive garden - it's one of nancpop's faves and i really like him...alot...even after alllll these years.

nanc said...

dora - this just in - several people are tired of you - they say they'll promise to miss you if you'll JUST go away - what say? but, we cannot if you won't.

nanc said...

i sure wish beamish would come and share his recipe for disaster...

Mr. Beamish the Kakistocrat said...

Beamish's 666 Alarm Chili

1 lb. ground chuck
1 large can Bush's chili beans
1/2 packet William's chili seasoning
1 pound ripe habanero peppers
1 pound ripe jalepeno peppers
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 tablespoon Tabasco Brand Hot Sauce
1 bottle Louisiana Hot Sauce

For millenia, mankind has used water to put out fire. Seems counterintuitive to use water as a chili stock. So, instead of simmering the cooked and drained ground beef in water with the powder ingredients, use a blender or fruit juicer to puree the habanero and jalepeno peppers into a frothy liquid sludge.

Cook down to appropriate consistency. Stir in Louisiana Hot Sauce until the soup retains a "chili looking color."

This high concentration of aerosolized lachrymatory agents may cause anaphylactic shock and immediate death in those with respiratory or cardiac conditions, so season to the taste of someone you don't like and scale back the recipe as needed.

Caution: DO NOT cook without wearing OC gas rated chemical warfare gear protecting all body openings including skin pores. Do not leave burning on a stove in any place you want to live.

Serves 6.

nanc said...

what type of equipment would one use to put THAT fire out?

nanc said...

i'll bet the dogeater has an excellent chili recipe...

The Merry Widow said...

Beamish-I am gasping for breath and sweating buckets just READING your recipe. I won't tell you what my stomach is doing, but I am coughing. Wonder if it will cause my monitor to catch fire...

tmw

Mr. Beamish the Kakistocrat said...

what type of equipment would one use to put THAT fire out?

Well, I've never had a taste tester actually come out of a coma long enough to say.

I bet drinking a tanker truck of buttermilk would do it.

nanc said...

no doubt, a truckload of these would be in order also...

The Merry Widow said...

Why don't you taste it?

tmw

Mr. Beamish the Kakistocrat said...

Why don't you taste it?

I'm biased. I need objective opinions.

Mr. Beamish the Kakistocrat said...

The first 0.035 second of having a spoonful of it in your mouth is pure spicy bliss. After that it's pure hell until you finish the bowl.

For the next week or so.

Mr. Beamish the Kakistocrat said...

I guarantee living through a bowl of Beamish's 666 Alarm Chili will make winning a roofing nail eating contest a cinch.

Mr. Beamish the Kakistocrat said...

Careful not to inhale the fumes while you're eating, though. Nobody likes convulsions and projectile vomiting at the dinner table.

nanc said...

with or without the little orange tabs on them?

nanc said...

i imagine you wouldn't even want to breathe on anybody lest you be sued for their clothing going up in flames?

Mr. Beamish the Kakistocrat said...

Ya'll want a serious, good recipe that's safe for humans to eat?

nanc said...

one that won't kill anyone?

sure.

The Merry Widow said...

Don't breath around cars, babies, small animals or gas stations!

tmw

Mr. Beamish the Kakistocrat said...

This is a delicious marinade that "fancifies" fried chicken.


2.5 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of ginger (sliced)
1.5 tablespoons of brown sugar
1 pinch of mild chili spice
1 12 ounce can of Coca Cola

Boil ingredients in a sauce pan until the stock is half cooked away.

Pour the sauce over pieces of fried chicken, or marinade them in the mix before serving.

Very good on spare ribs and pork steaks too.

nanc said...

i didn't realize how hungry warren's gun post would make me.

Mr. Beamish the Kakistocrat said...

Wars should be fought over culinary treasures.

Mr. Beamish the Kakistocrat said...

Popcorn is a snack the world would have never come to enjoy had the Spanish conquerors not seen fit to pillage the Aztec civilization.

Remember. A world without popcorn is a world with Aztec paganity.

FLORIAN said...

How do you get a lifetime permit? Not fair...mine is every 5 years. I'm going to be carrying 2 in my car from now on. And one on my person everywhere I go (except those church meetings).

Warren said...

Nanc said:
"i'll bet the dogeater has an excellent chili recipe...

Yes, but you have to make it fast before the police start looking for all the missing chihuahuas.

If you follow the mail man around and gather up the dogs he sprays with that purple tinted OC spray they use at the Post Office, you don't have to mess around with habanero or jalapeno peppers!

nanc said...

TEQUILA!

nanc said...

no, really - that's the secret ingredient in an award winning chili recipe an attorney i used to work for told me...zippenzeelippenzee.

Warren said...

Florian,
Its a new state law. I'm hoping for a Federal preemption law that would allow the lawfully licensed to carry their handguns everywhere! (Especially places like San Francisco and NYC).

;^)

Warren said...

Dora/me said:

"

Oh, I don't know. I'll ask the voices in my head!!!

nanc said...

and i thought they gave it to you already knowing those things about you, warren. jeesh. you're good.

Farmer John said...

I've been commited to a mental institution. I guess I'm going to just have to conceal carry w/o the permit (as usual).

Less paperwork that way, anyway.

Farmer John said...

You guys have to much fun when I'm offline. Either I'm going to have to go offline more often, or simply resist posting and lurk.

Dora said...

Oh, FJ, you're trotting out the ole line that Nanc summarized with "but [crazy people]'ll get guns one way or another and carry them regardless of the laws."

So here's my question, and I asked Nanc, but she didn't know the answer, how come with guns, you guys think that restricting them, providing less access to them, etc. won't stop people from getting them (through other means), but with sex, you think that if you don't expose kids to sex on tv, if you don't expose them to sex. ed., if you don't teach them about birth control, in short, if you just pretend sex doesn't exist, the kids will have less sex?

nanc said...

is it ALL about sex with you, dora? i've not heard ONE SINGLE person allude to the fact that we do not tell our children about the facts of life - there is a major difference between giving them healthy answers and choices and letting them find out on their own on the streets, so to speak!

THIS IS A FREAKIN' GUN POST!

we've left all our guns loaded and in plain sight since our children were born - and only unload and/or put them away when they have company. like the old line goes, "GUNS DON'T KILL PEOPLE - I KILL PEOPLE!"

in other words, sex and guns don't mix, well, unless you're phil spector.

think safety, dora - that's where you miss the boat.

Dora said...

Nanc, did you forget to take your meds this morning? Without your drug cocktail, you're unable to make any sense?

Incidentally, have you ever heard of this thing called "analogy"?

If guns don't make violence easier and more frequent, then condoms don't make sex easier or more frequent. You don't see the problem with your reasoning?

"Guns don't kill people, people kill people." ~ "Condoms don't have sex, people have sex."

Dora said...

Oh, and don't go telling me that they are completely different. They are not: Eros and Thanatos, the complusion to sex and death/killing. They are complementary, the alpha and omega of human existence, if you will.

nanc said...

warren? is it time to put up another "internet stalker" post? or is it time for a trollbortion?

Dora said...

Mmm, Nanc, so that's what you do when faced with a question you can't answer?

Pathetic.

The Merry Widow said...

No, dora. It means you are a lousy guest and you are boring and we don't want to babysit you anymore.

tmw

Dora said...

LOL whatever. You're right, it's painfully obvious that you people are not interested in using the brains that god endowed you with. Oh well. I bet god is angry that he wasted those perfectly good brains on you :)

nanc said...

i believe EVERY sane person 18 and older should have access to weapons and the freedom to choose whether or not they want to screw around with anybody of their choosing.

crazies should NOT have access to weapons or the capability to reproduce.

'nuff said. BANG! this thread is now dead.

Dora said...

i believe EVERY sane person 18 and older should have access to weapons and the freedom to choose whether or not they want to screw around with anybody of their choosing.

Agreed. I suggest you go explain this to your friend FJ who wants to make pre and extramarital sex illegal.

crazies should NOT have access to weapons or the capability to reproduce.

Woah. So, how do you plan on doing that? Forced sterilization? ANd i'm sure that TMW, as a certified counselor, does not approve of the word "crazies."

Farmer John said...

Sex programs and reinforces behavior dora. With sex, you can program the individual to be sologamous, monogamous or polyamorous, and w/"thanatos" you want to program against self/ "Ego", not the "other one" (spouse) or the "many" (misanthropist). Masturbation reinforces Ego and self. Sleeping around reinforces indiscrimnate polyamrous behavior.

Sexual Monogamy sublimates Thanatos and keeps it under control. It also enables the "older" individual to self-sacrifice in favor of one's "offspring" as a way of achieving the Holy Grail of existence... eternal life. Homosexuals are "frustrated" in this sublimation and typically die young. They self-destruct.
