    Apparently the Nevada Assembly, Judiciary Committee has secretly added SB221 to it's agenda for TUESDAY - yes the day after tomorrow. This is a bad bill and needs to be stopped. SB221 is the worst assault we have seen on the second amendment in Nevada and every gun owner needs to get involved! We are fighting against the infamous Mayors Against Illegal Guns who has spent a lot of money to blast print, radio, and TV with ads in support of SB221. We as NV residents have done very little to oppose this bill and we are about to pay...

    Chief Justice John Roberts initially sided with the Supreme Court's four conservative justices to strike down the heart of President Obama's health care reform law, the Affordable Care Act, but later changed his position and formed an alliance with liberals to uphold the bulk of the law, according to two sources with specific knowledge of the deliberations. Roberts then withstood a month-long, desperate campaign to bring him back to his original position, the sources said. Ironically, Justice Anthony Kennedy - believed by many conservatives to be the justice most likely to defect and vote for the law - led the...

    International travel to the United States took a significant hit after the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, research shows. Efforts to reverse this trend culminated in Senate approval last week of the Travel Promotion Act, which President Obama is expected to sign today. The measure provides close to $200 million annually to create a national agency - the Corporation for Travel Promotion - modeled after successful tourism-advancement organizations in this country and in other developed nations.

    U.S. incarcerates more than any other nation: report Thu Feb 28, 2008 7:20pm EST By James Vicini WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States incarcerates more people than any other country in the world and for the first time in the nation's history, more than one in every 100 American adults is confined in a prison or jail, according to a report released on Thursday. The report by the Pew Center on the States said the American penal system held more than 2.3 million adults at the start of the year. The far more populous nation of China ranked second with...
  • Karl Rove/Valerie Plame Case Indicates Shield Law is Terrible Idea.

    Congress is debating the passing of a “shield law” which would protect members of the press from being forced to reveal their sources. This push for the so-called shield law has taken on new meaning since the Valerie Plame “outing” case has resulted in the jailing of New York Times reporter Judith Miller on a contempt of court finding for refusing to “give up” her sources for a story she never wrote. We should be asking many questions before we grant this kind of sweeping immunity to the “Fourth Estate.” I believe passing these laws would be a dangerous, dysnomic,...

    US tightens ban on Cuban cigars WASHINGTON (AFP) - US President George W. Bush (news - web sites)'s administration has tightened a ban on Americans importing Cuban cigars. "There is now an across-the-board ban on the importation of Cuban-origin cigars," said a notice released this week by the Treasury Department (news - web sites)'s Office of Foreign Assets Control. Previously, the rules allowed Americans licensed to travel to Cuba to bring back to the United States up to 100 dollars' worth of Cuban goods, including cigars. That loophole was closed in the latest regulations. The anti-Cuban cigar rules were already...

    A confluence of cynicism - Steve Williams The combined cynicism of California's Democrat-dominated legislature and a crippled Gray Davis is bringing a flood of laws bereft of bipartisanship, and not coincidentally vastly strengthening the Left's grip on state politics. The worst of the new measures is something called Assembly Bill 503, introduced by Christine Kehoe (D-San Diego). It permits unions to use school resources, funded by taxpayer dollars, to urge the support or defeat of a ballot measure or candidate. Ultimately, the bill gives teachers' unions a free hand to campaign in public schools — using taxpayer resources to foot...

  • Wal-Mart halts N.Y. toy-gun sales

    04/11/2003 8:54:51 AM PDT · by Brian S · 44 replies · 374+ views
    Wal-Mart Stores Inc. on Thursday suspended sales of toy guns in its stores throughout the state of New York, only hours after Atty. Gen. Eliot Spitzer sued the world's biggest retailer, accusing it of selling such toys without required safety markings to distinguish them from real weapons. The toy guns have orange caps on their barrels, as required by federal law, but they don't have nonremovable orange stripes down the barrel's length as New York law requires, Spitzer's lawsuit contends. Safety experts say the brightly colored markings help police officers distinguish toy guns from real weapons, and that the permanent...
  • PA House OKs 'gay' rights -- Will pastors be targeted for preaching against homosexuality?

    © 2002 Pennsylvania lawmakers have passed legislation that gives homosexuals specific, statewide legal protection for the first time, prompting some to predict that pastors in the state will now be targeted for preaching against the "gay" lifestyle. The bill, which passed the House on Tuesday by a vote of 118 to 79, adds ''ancestry, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, gender or gender identity'' to the state's Ethnic Intimidation law, which already raises the grade of crimes motivated by hatred against victims because of their race, color, religion or national origin. According to a report in the Harrisburg Patriot-News,...
