Welcome to AnnoyedMan.com, a website archiving the many rants, musings, screeds, and diatribes of The Annoyed Man - the most annoyed man on the Internet. I am, in this order of importance, a Christian, husband, father, grandfather, curmudgeon, and patriot. I am a Liberative Conservatarian, and a registered independent - having at various times in my life made the grave, but fortunately reversible, mistake of having registered as either a democrat or a republican. I consider myself an unbiased observer of people and politics. It is possible (nay, even likely) that something I publish here will offend you. Try and imagine how little I care. The Constitution of the United States of America protects your right to your opinions, including a right to BE offended; but exactly nowhere in that august document is there a section protecting you FROM offense. If you're angry enough about something I write, then you can cart your snowflake ass off somewhere else; or better yet, you can pull up your big-boy pants, try adulting for a while, and get your own website where you can write all you want about what a jerk I am.

If you're not offended, then we'll get along just fine; so pull up a chair, light a cigar, take a sip of that whiskey, and enjoy the visit.

  2. "We just want common sense regulations."

There are some who would say that Jesus in fact did rebuke Peter for carrying a sword, using Matthew 26:52 as their justification. There are 4 gospel accounts of this scene, and Matthew 26:52 is the only one which mentions anything close to a rebuke. Here are the 4 versions for your own view, using the ESV version:

Jesus and the Gun

I began this essay as a response to a "progressive" with whom I exchanged tweets, who throught that Holly Fisher's posing with a Bible in one hand and an AR15 in the other was hypocritical of her. More about Ms. Fisher at the end of this essay, but you can see a little bit of her story HERE.
