    It has been said so much...too much...that it is becoming cliche to say that gun control only affects the law abiding. It's not even debatable, unless you're not smart enough to understand common sense.
  • Lautenberg aides deny report that senator has decided to step down

    01/11/2013 6:03:18 PM PST · by SMGFan · 29 replies
    Aides to five-term U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg are rejecting a report by NBC tonight that the 88-year-old senator will not seek re-election in 2014. "NBC 4's report that Senator Lautenberg has decided to retire has not been confirmed by our office or anyone in our organization. The Senator has not made a decision on his re-election." said Lautenberg spokesman Caley Gray, adding the report "is simply not true." The report came from veteran local NBC reporter Brian Thompson who cited un-named sources.

    Thank you for using the White House's online petitions platform to participate in your government. In a nation of 300 million people -- each with their own set of deeply-held beliefs -- democracy can be noisy and controversial. And that's a good thing. Free and open debate is what makes this country work, and many people around the world risk their lives every day for the liberties we often take for granted. But as much as we value a healthy debate, we don't let that debate tear us apart. Our founding fathers established the Constitution of the United States "in...
  • Washington Post prints's Mike Stollenwerk's letter re Biden work group

    Letter to the Editor Find legal avenues for gun policies Published: January 8, 2013 Several of the policy initiatives being considered by Vice President Biden’s working group [“Broad strategy on guns weighed,” front page, Jan. 6] appear to be plainly unconstitutional (e.g., to “stiffen penalties for carrying guns near schools” and to ban “ammunition magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds”). In 1995 the Supreme Court held in U.S. v. Lopez that the federal government did not have the power to ban people from carrying a gun near a school, and in 2008 the Supreme Court held in District...

    Article I, Section 9, Clause 7 of the United States Constitution states: "No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time." This is the "Power of the Purse" clause, which Article I, Section 7, Clause 1 makes clear is exclusively held by the House of Representatives: "All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills."...

    America continues to lose ground in economic libertyThe United States is no longer a beacon of freedom to the world. Countries once looked to America for inspiration on how to escape poverty and embrace prosperity, but now they can find better examples to follow. The Heritage Foundation on Thursday noted our fifth consecutive decline in its annual Index of Economic Freedom. It’s a sad day when countries such as Chile and Mauritius can outdo the red-white-and-blue when it comes to opportunity. U.S. economic policy has broken faith with the Founding Fathers, who preached the value of property rights, sound money...

    Fewer young men in the US want to get married than ever, while the desire for marriage is rising among young women, according to the Pew Research Center. Pew recently found that the number of women 18-34 saying that having a successful marriage is one of the most important things rose from 28 percent to 37 percent since 1997. The number of young adult men saying the same thing dropped from 35 percent to 29 percent in the same time. Pew’s findings have caught the attention of one US writer who maintains that feminism, deeply entrenched in every segment of...
  • Whew! Huge Asteroid Apophis Won't Hit Earth in 2036

    The Earth is safe from the giant asteroid Apophis when it flies extremely close to our planet in 2029, then returns for seconds in 2036, NASA scientists announced today (Jan. 10). The chances of an impact in 2036 are less than one in a million, they added. Asteroid Apophis — which is the size of three and a half football fields — was discovered in June 2004 and gained infamy after a preliminary study suggested it had a 2.7 percent chance of hitting the Earth during its 2029 flyby. Subsequent observations ruled out an impact in 2029, but astronomers were...

    To the editor: A recent editorial called for unlimited gun ownership to defend against the government. I hear this argument a lot, but what good is your AR-15 when you're fighting the full force of the United States military? All they have to do is drop a smart bomb on your house from high above and you're done. You wouldn't even see it coming. Alternatively, they could simply run over your house with a Kevlar-plated M1 Abrams tank, or shell your dwelling from cannons positioned far away. I support the right to bear arms to protect your home and family...
  • Getting Murdered: Where in the World?

    01/11/2013 5:10:22 PM PST · by marktwain · 19 replies ^ | 13 January, 2013 | Dennis Sevakis
    A couple of days ago I received an email from one of my correspondents, Shirley C. to be specific, and therein was a list of countries with murder rates greater than the U.S. Quite a few there were. But my curiosity was piqued, and I was sucked into another paroxysm of impulsive number crunching. Well, something to that effect. Here are the results. First, there’s my reconstruction, reordering and summarizing of the murder rates from various regions of the world: A couple of minutes’ scrutiny of the table makes it obvious that the highest murder rates are in sub-Sahara Africa...

    I had an interview with a major software company today. It was quite the experience. At no time in my life I have had a company (MS) provide as much background, profiles, schedules, etc. on an interview process. This day was set up to be golden ... maybe, if I wasn't a conservative. Two days ago, I was sent an email on the interview. It included a schedule, how to dress (business attire), profiles on who was interviewing me, LinkedIn accounts and other information that made this interview seem like the most open and transparent process I have ever been...

    NEW DELHI/ISLAMABAD: New Delhi on Friday reacted to Pakistan's protest over the killing of one of its soldiers in cross-border gunbattle the previous day by asserting that Indian troops had resorted to "controlled response" in retaliation against unprovoked firing by Pakistani troops at Mendhar. With Pakistan persisting with its disdain towards the outrage in India over the beheading of its soldiers and tensions spiking, Indian troops were stepping up their "alertness levels" along the entire 778-km LoC. Indian Army threatened Pakistan with "dire consequences" if the latter refused to mend its barbaric ways. Indian high commissioner in Islamabad Sharat Sabarwal...
  • Washington D.C.: Where People Watch Twice As Much Online Porn As The Rest Of The Country

    01/11/2013 4:56:28 PM PST · by SMGFan · 16 replies
    There must be something in the Potomac— According to a popular adult site, Washington D.C. has won the dubious title of America’s porn capital. D.C. residents reportedly watch almost twice as much online porn per capita as people living in the 50 states. It is a highly charged city, so who are we to judge how people relax? ******.com says D.C. residents watch 14.18 videos per person per year, followed by Hawaiians at 7.5.7 videos per person annually in the No. 2. spot. Other notables include Massachusetts (7.52) and New York (7.5). The Washington Post tries to take a crack...

    If your daughter was an actress doing a sex scene in a movie or television show, would you want to watch? On the CBS Late Show Thursday, Girls star Lena Dunham said that not only is NBC's Brian Williams often on the set for the filming of this sex-packed HBO program, the cast jokes about having a "BriWi-cam" on him to gauge his reactions to his daughter Allison's sex scenes (video follows with transcript and commentary):
