The Ghost Knife
The whole thing is fishy
It might be hard to determine what the picture above shows. No need to squint. I’ll tell you that it’s a black ghostknife fish. If you want to learn more about it, you’re on your own. Do a web search, I guess.
In the meantime, I’ll get to the real purpose of this commentary. It has nothing to do with Ichthyology. It has to do with a fishy story that arose in the last few days and a new phrase that Joe Biden’s handlers created out of thin air. They do that a lot by inventing new problems that they alone can solve with new regulations. No need for the regs to be actual laws, actually enacted by lawmakers. But more on that later.
I keep seeing this show on the History Channel called "Forged in Fire." It’s not my favorite show. It bored me after the first episode. But that's okay because I expect it will be canceled soon by a government regulation that prohibits "Ghost Knives."
You know what a ghost knife is don’t you? No? Well, that’s because I just did what the President’s handlers did. I made it up.
Of course they made up the term “Ghost Guns” first, which inspired me to make up “Ghost Knives.” It’s often said, “you can’t make this stuff up.” As it turns out, I guess you actually can.
The new term “ghost gun” is apparently defined as any parts, made of any material, that you can buy online, or perhaps in a Home Depot, and later use to fabricate a weapon. In this case a gun. Or I suppose, a knife.
Since the show “Forged in Fire” is all about taking any piece of metal, heating it up, pounding it with a hammer and making it into a knife, I think the show will soon be outlawed. Or out-regulated, as the case may be.
Who knew that cavemen would have been subject to arrest a few millennia ago? Not for making a knife, so far that’s still allowed even today, I think. No, they would be arrested if they found some metal and sold it to Fred Flintstone so he could make it into a knife. That would have been the violation.
All this is pretty silly. So why do I write about it? Because, that’s what I do. I write about stuff that’s fundamentally silly. And making up new problems, inventing new terms, and passing “laws” that aren’t really laws is definitely silly.
The fundamental law that is being broken here is the law of common sense. Not to mention the real intention, namely the disembowelment of the second amendment with the aforementioned Ghost Knife.
