If it’s something on the Progressives’ “I want” list, it’s “un-democratic” for a president to abide by his constitutional limits, to honor the Bill of Rights, and to respect the will of the People.
We have no obligation to wait to see what the intentions of a madman with a gun might be. On the contrary, we arguably have a societal responsibility to draw our own deadly force weapons and use them to stop the threat with as many well-aimed shots as it takes to end that threat to the lives of everyone in the area.
What matters is if the Curve will sell, and as Taurus has already proven with the stunning success of the Judge family of .45 Colt/.410 revolvers, they know how to market and sell tons of handguns that industry experts feel are absurd.
… as absurd as they look, they may be the “gateway drug” to draw people into our gun culture.
I hope that Taurus is successful for that reason alone.
Personally, I like it. But then, of course, I’m the one still holding out for a cell phone with a rotary dial.
Two men suspected of buying explosives they planned to detonate during protests in Ferguson, Missouri, once a grand jury decides the Michael Brown case, were arrested on Friday and charged with federal firearms offenses …
… this isn’t politics. Liberty is at stake here. It doesn’t matter what the unconstitutional power grab was about. It was still an unconstitutional power grab, should be called such and should come with consequences.
Look how far we’ve come, America. A president who, by his own admission, would need to be an emperor to pass amnesty through executive order, just passed amnesty through executive order, and the media gives a warning to Republicans. We’re living in the Twilight Zone.
According to Obama our immigration system is broken because it doesn’t allow illegal aliens who illegally crossed the border to take American jobs. That’s not a broken system, that’s what the system is supposed to do.
If the tattered shreds of the immigration system still keep a single Democratic voter from legally cashing a welfare check and casting a vote, then immigration must be reformed and helped and fixed until it is completely destroyed.
Our immigration system made perfect sense back when we were opening factories everywhere. It made sense when new ranches needed hands and land needed working. It makes a lot less sense when the government is fighting a war on carbon, when ranches have to get out of the way of the spotted red toad and farms are starved of water in the name of the environment.
Declining industries tighten their belts by cutting costs. They find the cheapest employees they can. Those cheapest employees become a constituency for the nanny state. The nanny state makes it even more expensive to operate. The cycle spins on until the only industries left are state subsidized and everyone directly or indirectly works for the state. And the only items of collateral with which to borrow more money to subsidize them with are the land and the people. That’s not America. That’s Africa.
What broke the system was making it as open as possible to those who had the least to offer while closing it tightly to those who had the most to offer. Now Obama wants to import illegal aliens while deporting American jobs. He wants to trade American jobs to illegal aliens for Democratic votes.
You, in fact, have said many times that you could not legally act in this manner because you are not an emperor. So what changed? Are you the emperor now?
Most disappointing is that you slapped legal immigrants in the face. You looked in the eyes of all those who followed the law and did things the right way, and you called them suckers.
You sold out your nation for political gain and to provoke Republicans into committing hara-kiri. It was done for all the wrong reasons, and you sold it to the American people as a noble action. Mr. President, you ought to be ashamed of yourself, but, unfortunately, you don’t have enough integrity to feel shame.
To adapt a line from Thomas Frank, we might today ask ourselves, “What’s the matter with Congress?” Last night, in Las Vegas, the head of the executive branch announced what amounts to a remarkable usurpation of legislative authority — and a significant portion of the legislature applauded. Before his speech, a raft of House Democrats had urged Obama to go as far as he pleased, comparing his impending behavior to that of Abraham Lincoln and Harry Truman and recording for posterity that they had his back.
Bravo. An entire story and commentary on state of affairs, all wrapped up in a single-sentence headline.
After CBS News aired a damaging report which suggested Attorney General Eric Holder had lied to Congress, the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) press director worked overtime to suppress reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s story and called her CBS superiors to complain.
“I want you to remember that once upon a time, feminists fought for the access — basic right — access of girls to education,” …
“That’s what feminists used to fight for — the access for girls to education … They used to fight for the recognition of girls as fellow human beings and recognition of their personal liberty.”
“… I condemn whole-heartedly the trivial bullshit it is to go after a man who makes a scientific breakthrough and all that we as women — organized women — do is to fret about his shirt?”
we should not throw away feminism, because that would be like throwing away the civil rights movement. Instead, feminism needs to fight the real war on women: Radical Islam and other parts of the world where women don’t even have the right to an education or to leave their home without a male guardian.
“The American people deserve honesty, transparency and respect from those who forced the federal government into their healthcare. I expect Mr. Gruber and Administrator Tavenner to testify publicly next month about the arrogance and deceptions surrounding the passage and implementation of ObamaCare,”
An important point has been buried in the avalanche of commentary about Jonathan Gruber’s indictment of the electorate as intellectually deficient. The “father of Obamacare,” as he was known in his salad days, inadvertently acquitted nearly half of us with his reference to “the stupidity of the American voter.” The professor’s condescending comments can only apply to those people who actually believed the empty promises our President made on behalf of his health care “reform” law. A large plurality of the voters always knew that Obama, his congressional accomplices, and creepy little hirelings like Jonathan Gruber were lying to us.
As for the voters who believed all the misrepresentations, they were more credulous than stupid. Though it was obvious to millions of us that the ironically named Affordable Care Act was never going to increase access to care while also improving quality and decreasing cost, Obama’s supporters thought he was a “post-partisan” politician who could be trusted. They failed to subject his implausible claims to serious scrutiny and therefore missed what was wrong with the rosy picture he was painting. It is these voters who should be most insulted by Gruber’s remarks. It is their naïveté that the President and his co-conspirators cynically exploited.
Jonathan Gruber and everyone he has ever worked with, is about to suffer catastrophic hard drive failure.
… your assets can be seized simply because the state does not like the way you are depositing your own funds into your own bank accounts. The IRS is now seizing the bank accounts of businesses and individuals because they regularly made deposits of less than $10,000, which is a perfectly legal practice.
Under U.S. civil asset forfeiture laws, IRS agents can seize property they suspect of being tied to a crime even if no charges are filed, and the agency can keep a share of the property whether a crime is proven or not.

If anyone still has any doubt about the utter cynicism of the Obama administration, a recent agreement between the federal government and the Minneapolis Public Schools should open their eyes.
Everything causes global warming.
…but have conveniently changed their tune with the recent record-breaking lake-effect snow in the Buffalo area to claim global warming increases lake-effect snowfall.
It would be hard to choose just one quote as the stupidest thing Hillary Clinton ever said, but this one is definitely cringeworthy.
In fact, if she were a Republican, the Internet would have blown up bigger than Kim Kardashian’s butt.
… no way that’s true. Zero. Hold on–MARIA! More wine por favor!–now where were we?
