Submitted my application & got fingerprinted for the CT 60-day temporary permit yesterday. Assuming that comes through, in 3 - 4 months, I'll then have 60 days to apply for the 5-year state permit.

Hopefully this time around I won't let the damn thing lapse again.

I'm actually unsure whether he'd be worse. I know he's been doing speaking tours, but I don't know his political deal in the modern era.

Now that you mention it... I assumed he was still all-in on American Exceptionalism Foreign Policy, but it's probably been fifteen years since I heard him speak.

Is he still doing talk radio?

Apparently he's retiring from talk radio to take this gig.

Maybe with his own experience he'll teach them how to manage scandal for their benefit.

It's like somebody looked at the Dana Loesch Fascism Commercials, said they couldn't possibly sink any lower, and then his buddy said "Hold my beer."

The left's claim that the NRA is all about selling guns to deplorable people is now pretty much true.

Maybe they were correct and you were incorrect.

The left is wrong about a lot of libertarians. They seem to be right about the right, however. Or at least the Trumpster right.

Punk rock attitude is much more modular and flexible than people apparently realized.

I had 3/4th of a beer and some shit pizza and it's 90 degrees at night in Nola so I'm shitposting for the next twenty or so until I pass out.

The Trumpster right is turning out to be bigger than I thought (and I would freely have admitted that there was a lot of that bullshit already) and the cooler heads of the right are just flailingly ineffectual at reining in or persuading the Trump/Nugent right.
