  • Gun Control and the Stupid Liberals Who Love It

    Guardian lv.com ^ | January 10, 2013. | Todd Jackson
    President Obama seems hell-bent upon foisting bad gun control legislation upon America. And why not? He loves this stuff. Just every other stupid liberal. Many conservatives are quick to ascribe malevolent motives, sometimes to a degree that is bluntly ludicrous. Liberalism is above mental dullness, a way of being carried along by sentiment instead of thought. I don’t care how many degrees the President has. His problem is not that he’s evil. His problem is that he just isn’t terribly bright. In this, he is typical. Terribly bright people don’t get to be President. Middling narcissists do. This is a...
  • Al Gore is now 'richer than Romney'

    Someone finally has done all the math on the recent sale of Al Gore's Current TV to the Arabic language channel Al-Jazeera for $500 million. Jobs were lost, buzz created, employees angered, but the former vice president had little to say about it. He did walk away with a reported $100 million a tidy sum for a man who had less that $2 million in assets when he ran for president more than a dozen years ago, says Forbes magazine. "Taking into account taxes to be paid on the deal, possible earlier debt and the fact that Gore's representatives...

    In the wake of the financial meltdown, President Barack Obama derided Wall Street bonuses as obscene, calling them examples of fat cats who are getting awarded for their failure. But now, Mr. Obama has announced that he will nominate as his next Treasury secretary Jack Lew, a man who in 2009 bagged a $950,000 bonus after his bank, Citigroup, received billions in a taxpayer-funded bailout. Mr. Lew is the former chief operating officer of Citigroups Alternative Investments unita group that bet billions against homeowners paying their mortgages.

    Washington Post ^ | 10 Jan 13 | Jennifer Rubin
    Lost somewhat in the fight over the expiration of the Bush tax cuts and the upcoming standoff over the debt ceiling is the defense sequestration. If you will recall, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said the cuts would be devastating. In the campaign, the president said he would take care of that, and he has consistently argued that it was the Republicans who were holding the troops hostage to protect the rich from tax hikes. The GOP has given on the taxes, but the troops and our national security are still being held hostage by the president, who would only agree...

    President Obama: Where are the Women? January 10, 2013 President Obama has made a number of high-profile appointments recently -- four at last count, and they are all white men. Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the U.N., was in line to follow Hillary Clinton as secretary of state. The right wing unjustly smeared Rice, and despite the efforts of NOW and allied women's organizations, she was pushed aside and replaced with a white male nominee. And now we hear that Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis is leaving her post. Who will be her replacement? Write to President Obama today and...

    CENTENNIAL, Colo.

I am writing to him, other than that, I dont expect anything back, honestly. Because he doesnt know who we are. He doesnt know who his supporters are.

    This week is National Migration Week, a campaign of the American bishops aimed at comprehensive immigration reform in order to legalize 11 million undocumented immigrants. The campaign has five goals: Provide a path to citizenship for undocumented persons; preserve family unity as a cornerstone of our national immigration system; provide legal paths for low-skilled immigrant workers to come and work in the United States; restore due process protections to immigration enforcement policies; address the root causes of migration caused by persecution and economic disparity. Since 1975 the Immigration and Legal Services (ILS) department of Catholic Charities of Dallas, Inc. has...

  • Jersey City mayor appears on CNN to decry 'national plague' of guns

    Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy spoke to CNNs Christiane Amanpour yesterday about gun control, saying illicit guns are a national plague that requires a national cure. Healy stressed that the city doesnt want to take guns from hunters, adding that his problem is with assault rifles and weapons that hold clips of 30 or more rounds of ammunition. No hunter, no collector, no target shooter has any reason to have those weapons, the mayor told Amanpour. They were all banned up until about eight years ago. The bans expired. Wed like to get them back in place. Healy touted the...

    LONDON (Reuters) - The military has changed its standard issue pistol to the Glock after using the Browning for more than 40 years, the Ministry of Defence said on Friday. It said it had awarded a 9 million pound contract to Austrian arms firm Glock for 25,000 guns because their pistol is lighter, carries more bullets and is more accurate than the U.S.-made Browning. "I have seen this pistol demonstrated in target ranges and am impressed that this new lighter, safer generation of pistol provides better value for money for the MoD," Defence Equipment Minister
