  • Why Are Gun Control Advocates So Racist and Sexist?

    I guess it’s not just violent too. Recently a Brady Board member opined “Angry white men are losing their influence,” and then proceeds to go on a racist and sexist diatribe the likes of which is hard to be believed. Is Tam an “angry white man?” Is Jennifer? Is my co-blogger? The cornered cat? Are the large percentage of my fellow NRA Election Volunteer Coordinators who are women? Is Pastor Ken? On the academic side of the Second Amendment, is Professor Johnson? Professor Cottrol? And let’s not forget about our women who toiled tireless on behalf of the outcome in...

    EurActiv ^ | 23 January 2012
    The latest draft of the fiscal compact to be discussed today (23 January) and tomorrow by European finance ministers increases the isolation of Britain by excluding London from taking part in euro summits and rejecting the UK’s objections over the new role of the Court of Justice. After the first agreement on the fiscal compact, EU diplomats scrambled for weeks over the issue of the participation of member states to the newly institutionalised euro summits, which the new treaty says will be held “at least twice a year”. The most radical option on the table was to exclude non-eurozone members...

    As a way to solve the national debt crisis, North Carolina Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue recommends suspending Congressional elections for the next couple of years. “I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,” Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, North Carolina, according to the Raleigh News and Observer. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.” Perdue said she thinks that temporarily halting elections would allow members...

    New Hampshire --(Ammoland.com)- Recently New Hampshire gun dealers were sent a large manila envelope from the NH Firearms Safety Coalition.

Firearms Are The Leading Method Attempts With A Gun Are More Deadly Than Attempts With Other Methods.” The poster may be viewed here: www.theconnectproject.org/uploads/docs/Posterfinal.pdf .

    Business Insider ^ | 08/06/2011 | Philip Greenspun
    NYT Economix says that the average length of unemployment is the longest ever recorded, up to more than 40 weeks (compared to less than 15 weeks in the downturn of the late 1940s). According to the Census, home ownership rates have been growing gradually since 1950, as has the duration of unemployment. Let’s look at a couple of reasons that increased homeownership could lengthen unemployment periods. Let’s consider mobility. There is a large variation in demand for labor across states and regions. Homeowners are crippled in terms of mobility compared to renters. The homeowner, especially in a state with a...

    St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 11 April, 2011 | Kurt Hofmann
    This past weekend, as has become someting of a pattern, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) accused (via Twitter) me and other gun rights advocates of "insurrection" and "treason." This, despite the fact that there doesn't seem to be any "insurrection" going on in the U.S., and the fact that the Constitution's necessarily extremely narrow definition of "treason" can't possibly be applied to stating the obvious fact that the Second Amendment exists as the last bulwark against tyranny. Much of the weekend's debate was about Professor Robert Churchill's (author of the excellent To Shake Their Guns in the Tyrant's...

    Hoping to position itself as the voice of reason in the middle is a nationwide coalition of more than 550 mayors, including Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and 184 others in Pennsylvania. Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a group founded in 2006 by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, has called for better federal funding and improved coordination between agencies to make enforcement of gun laws a possibility. However, gun lobby groups and pro-gun lawmakers contend the mayors' group has a more sinister agenda. They say the mayors place the burden of tracking illegal guns on law-abiding...

    NEWS FLASH – There is a federal background check required on all purchasers of firearms sold through gun stores which hold a Federal Firearms License (FFL). And you can't operate a gun store selling firearms without an FFL. It seems that journalists, especially those associated with various Buckeye State universities and colleges, are coming out of the woodwork to attack the Second Amendment. If one were to believe in conspiracy theories, the flow of one-sided liberal editorials, thinly disguised as journalistic reporting, couldn't be a coincidence. If you don't believe in conspiracy theories, then the liberal journalists smell blood and...

    There are some issues Democratic Presidents can't seem to win, and gun control is one of them. As a legislator, Barack Obama backed tighter gun laws; as a presidential candidate, he pledged restraint. "I'm not going to take away your guns," he said at a Pennsylvania glass factory in September 2008. He hasn't. Last year the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, citing "extraordinary silence and passivity," graded Obama an F on gun control. During his tenure, the President has also expanded gun rights by signing laws that allow the possession of firearms in national parks and on Amtrak. And...

The document also references the federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) as a threat to religious liberty.

Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives agree on the point. Indeed, Sen.

We respect their reasoned positions, as we do those of Congressman Tom Petri, R-Fond du Lac, and former Gov. Tommy Thompson.

Downplaying the importance of passing laws, the freshman governor said he favored regulatory changes and executive orders to run the state -- neither of which require prior approval by the legislature. The Democratic governor repeated his criticism of a decision by the Senate's Republican majority to go home June 21, the official end of the six-month session, though many bills remain to be considered.

Circuit Court Judge Thomas Barkdull III also returned some of Limbaugh's records to his attorney, Roy Black. Black had argued that the judge should limit the records prosecutors can review because they contain privileged, even embarrassing, details about medical procedures, symptoms and other issues that were unrelated to the criminal investigation.

MSN China, launched last month, is used by the bloggers to post their thoughts. But now words such as "freedom," "democracy," "demonstration," "human rights," and "Taiwan independence" are being blocked, the BBC reported Tuesday. The company said it must abide by the laws and regulations of each country in which it operates. Chinese bloggers already face strict controls and must register their online journal with Chinese authorities. Reporters Without Borders...

    JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel says it will not attend a World Court hearing on whether it should tear down a barrier taking in Jewish settlements on occupied West Bank territory that Palestinians want for a state. Israeli officials say the barrier being erected inside the West Bank is meant to keep out suicide bombers and has thwarted dozens of attacks. Palestinians call it a bid to annex land they need for a viable state since it snakes deep into the West Bank. The stalemate underlined the paralysis in Middle East peacemaking and came a day after Israel killed 15 Palestinians...

    PALESTINIANS today accused former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein of cowardice after the long-time hero to many in the West Bank and Gaza Strip was captured without a struggle by US troops near his hometown. Saddam's support and financial aid to the tune of thousands of dollars for the families of Palestinian suicide bombers during the three-year intifada made the former Iraqi strongman a popular figure in the occupied territories. Palestinians celebrated during the 1991 Gulf War when Saddam's forces fired dozens of Scud missiles at Israel. But today many were quick to draw a contrast between Saddam's meek surrender and...

    Israel's ambassador in London Zvi Stauber boasted this week that his embassy has been "maintaining close relations with the BBC." What is the value of such "close relations" if the result is that this great radio and TV network displays unceasing hostility toward Israel and Prime Minister Ariel Sharon? Ambassador Stauber's strange claim - directed to the Foreign Ministry - was intended to protest Jerusalem's justified official censure of the BBC, which came after a repeat broadcast on the British World Service of a program about the danger Israel ostensibly poses because of nuclear weapons supposedly produced in the Dimona...

    Council passes anti-war resolution Boulder reverses earlier decision to avoid Iraq statement By Greg Avery, Camera Staff Writer January 22, 2003 Boulder's City Council on Tuesday formally expressed opposition to a United States-led war with Iraq, reversing its skepticism about such a declaration last fall. Responding to a growing push by hundreds of people around the city — peace activists, students, business owners, religious leaders, elementary school teachers and others — the council voted 7-2 in support of a resolution urging diplomacy instead of war. Boulder joined a growing list of at least 42 cities around the country that have...

    The upsetting thing about Rasheed Wallace and Damon Stoudamire getting pulled over midway between Seattle and Portland last week wasn't that they were smoking marijuana. It was that they were riding in a Humvee, the 6,400-pound, 11-mile-per-gallon symbol of a bloated, wasteful and self-centered lifestyle. Not that their vehicle choice was surprising in any way. The Hummer and the 5,600-pound, 12-mile-per-gallon Cadillac Escalade are the rides of choice among today's athletes, who don't know Desert Storm from Hannah Storm. If they aren't driving Hummer and Escalades, then they're driving some other bloated SUVs. The real reason athletes have such palatial...

     As the 107th Congress comes to a close, it has the dubious distinction of probably becoming the most anti-freedom Congress in 60 years. Not since Roosevelt forced his unconstitutional "New Deal" programs through Congress and intimidated the Supreme Court into accepting the central government socialist concept for the United States have more ominous anti-freedom bills passed Congress. Most freedom not usurped by the Roosevelt programs, and their subsequent additions over the years, will be usurped by a combination of bills sometimes called the "Patriot Act" and the recently approved Homeland-Security bill.As Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) politely lamented on the floor...

    The Justice Department's vague proposal for a legion of citizen-informants - Operation TIPS - didn't get a warm reception when the DOJ floated the idea recently. Public outcry led House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-Tex.) to try to kill Operation TIPS in his markup of the Homeland Security Department bill. But it's not dead yet. As the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported on July 22, President Bush - Congress be damned - is going ahead with the program anyway. "The administration is continuing to pursue Operation TIPS," confirmed Justice Department spokeswoman Barbara Comstock. Why worry about Operation TIPS? What could possibly...
