    Growing up without a father has a far greater statistical correlation to gun violence than most sociological factors, including poverty and gun ownership, a statistical analysis of gun homicides in the U.S. shows. “Recent mass murders have given rise to a call for gun control, for the restriction of gun sales. The argument is that fewer guns would result in fewer murders. The data imply otherwise,” concluded Dr. Frederick Costello, an engineering consultant in Virginia, after analyzing firearm-related murders committed in all 50 states in 2010 at the request of state Delegate Ken Plum (D-36th). Virginia is one of 41...
  • Sen. Rand Paul: Why I’m Voting ‘No’ on Syria

    War should occur only when America is attacked, when it is threatened or when American interests are attacked or threatened. I don’t think the situation in Syria passes that test. Even the State Department argues that “there’s no military solution here that’s good for the Syrian people, and that the best path forward is a political solution.” The United States should not fight a war to save face. I will not vote to send young men and women to sacrifice life and limb for stalemate. I will not vote to send our nation’s best and brightest to fight for anything...

    The dead bodies found every day in towns and villages across Syria bearing marks of execution style killing and torture are the grim evidence of mounting war crimes and other abuses being committed not just by government forces, but also by armed opposition groups – some but not all more or less loosely affiliated with the Free Syrian Army (FSA)1 – in the context of the country’s bitter internal armed conflict. Such groups are summarily killing people with a chilling sense of impunity, and the death toll continues to rise as more towns and villages come under the control of...

    HBO’s Bill Maher thinks the Department of Homeland Security has outlived its usefulness. On Friday’s episode of “Real Time,” Maher and his guests debated the DHS’s usefulness during a discussion of the debate between Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul and New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie. “There was a huge verbal slap by the Republican Party this week between Chris Christie, the governor of New Jersey, and Rand Paul,” Maher said. “And it was sort of I think a fight for the soul of the Republican Party — where they’re going to go because, OK, next month is the 12th...
  • Ron Paul: Ryan Budget Plan Doesn't Go Far Enough

    Texas GOP Rep. Ron Paul says that, although he respects House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s attempts to cut the budget, he doesn’t believe the Wisconsin Republican's plan goes far enough. Paul also said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” the Medicare system is going to run into a “brick wall” before the proposal can help alleviate the nation’s fiscal crisis. “Well, I give him a lot of credit. You know, I get frustrated because I don’t think it’s going to last that long to deal with it, because I keep thinking the way we spend money, and the way inflation's...
