  • How Conservatism Can Triumph Quickly [vanity]

    12/28/2012 6:47:49 AM PST · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 7 replies
    This will explain: 1. A secret about the human brain. 2. A mistake many people make when they research. 3. How conservatism can spread faster than ever before. 4. How EASY it will be. To top it off, I try to make this fun. When a tree falls ... uh? How does that go again? A tree falls in the forest and no one hears it. Big 'duh', of course it's real. So is serious political punditry, about as real and unnoticed as that tree. Even big names might be broadcast far and wide, but people will mentally tune dreariness...

    Exclusive: Phil Elmore insists gun-hating liberals 'want to murder you' The war has begun. The cultural war, the roiling but barely concealed “cold” war in which you have been enmeshed for years, has exploded into a full-fledged conflict. Where once the libs, the leftists, the Democrats in the United States were content to try to marginalize you – to define you through flawed “studies” and junk “science” as stupid, as uninformed, as less compassionate, as inferior – they are no longer satisfied with this cowardly tactic. Where once the major news media at least went through the motions of concealing...

    People who say racial violence is “random” either do not know what the word means, or they are not telling the truth. The latest “random” attack – that wasn’t random – happened earlier this month in downtown Wilmington, N.C. Four black people decided they needed some money for marijuana and travel, so they decided to look for a “white person in a good neighborhood (because) they’re bound to have money lying around,” said one of the suspected killers to the Wilmington Star News. They tried to break into a home but ran away after they discovered someone was there. So...

    Organization often played legal hardball against accusers in molestation cases, say attorneys and families. When a lawsuit alleged that two young brothers in Michigan had been molested “hundreds of times” by a troop leader, the Boy Scouts denied responsibility and pointed the finger at someone else — the boys' recently widowed mother. The Scouts faulted the woman “for her failure to provide adequate parental supervision,” suggesting in court papers that she was responsible for any harm to her sons. One of the boys' lawyers called that argument excessive. “The day their dad died, the perpetrator began to befriend the boys,”...

    blah, blah, blah... I will work to keep faith with the Newtown community and find a solution to this crisis that is rooted in common sense. I will work with the President, and my colleagues in the Senate, regardless of party, and with any organization that is willing to engage in a thoughtful, constructive discussion about the steps we need to take. Here are some necessary steps: •We must do something to effectively ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. •We need to better prevent mentally ill people and criminals from having access to firearms. •We need to close loopholes that...

    David Gregory needs to please turn himself in to the authorities. Mr. Gregory has been accused of having a piece of metal of the wrong size. We've all seen the video of him waving that metal box and spring about on Meet The Press, a box and spring that is illegal to posses in the District of Columbia. We can debate the logic and sense of the law and how it is interpreted at a later date. There is no time for that now. Mr. Gregory needs to act before this spins out of control. He needs to do the...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.)—author of the federal “assault weapon” and “large” ammunition magazine ban of 1994-2004—has announced that on the first day of the new Congress—January 3rd— she will introduce a bill to which her 1994 ban will pale by comparison. On Dec. 17th, Feinstein said, “I have been working with my staff for over a year on this legislation” and “It will be carefully focused.” Indicating the depth of her research on the issue, she said on Dec. 21st that she had personally looked at pictures of guns in 1993, and again in 2012.According to a Dec. 27th posting on Sen. Feinstein’s website and a draft...

    I carried a gun in New York City for more than a decade -- back when there were thousands of murders a year and the Bronx led the nation in killings. On at least four occasions, that gun saved my life, and in a couple of instances, the lives of people who were with me at the time. For 13 years I had a New York City full carry permit. For a number of years I concealed and carried a gun in my son's grammar school as well. I don't think the world would be a better place without me,...
  • MSNBC Boss Calls Chris Matthews a 'Statesman,'

    The AP gets it right with this headline: “Chris Matthews now the broadcaster that conservatives love to hate.” AP reporter David Bauder begins: “To his boss, Chris Matthews has become a statesman. His critics probably have other words.” MRC assistant research director Geoff Dickens had other words in this piece, but get a load of MSNBC president Phil Griffin on this “statesman” business: "He's as good as he's ever been," said Phil Griffin, MSNBC president. "He's at a place in his life where he's really comfortable in his own skin. He's a statesman. He has so much knowledge and I...

    'People deserve better than this. And that's the bottom line' He single-handedly delivered the swing vote to approve Obamacare and perhaps even crushed the American health system that has been the envy of the world. WND has selected U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. for its first-ever Benedict Arnold Award. “There are lots of bad guys out there who would qualify as ‘Villain of the Year,’ but precious few candidates for the ‘Benedict Arnold Award,’” explained WND Vice President and Managing Editor David Kupelian. “Benedict Arnold, after all, was a good guy; he was an American general in...

  • 11 Amazing Facts about the McDonald's McRib (Reader Reactions Are HILARIOUS!)

    Business Insider via Yahoo!Finance ^ | December 17, 2012 | Dina Spector and Kim Bhasin
    The McDonald's McRib is back, hitting restaurants nationwide today. The legendary boneless pork sandwich, famously molded to resemble a rack of ribs, is both a feat of modern engineering and shrewd marketing. It garners almost as much attention for its pseudo-meat shape as its impermanence on restaurant menus. The barbecue-sauce-smothered sandwich was supposed to return at the end of October, but was pushed back to help boost end-of-the-year sales. Better late than never.

    In just a few days, a walkout by thousands of dock workers could bring commerce to a near standstill at every major port from Boston to Houston, potentially delivering a big blow to retailers and manufacturers still struggling to find their footing in a weak economy. More than 14,000 longshoremen are threatening to go on strike Sunday -a wide-ranging work stoppage that would immediately close cargo ports on the East Coast and the Gulf of Mexico to container ships. The 15 ports involved in the labor dispute move more than 100 million tons of goods each year, or about 40...
