  • Are Sig's 1911 less reliable than Colt or Springfield?

    AShooting Journal ^ | 7/26/2016 | J Hines
    Some of our readers and those from 1911 forum were taliking about whether the Sig 1911 is less reliable than Colt or Springfield. Here's some of the conversation taking place: 3RidersApproaching: SIG offers some very appealing 1911s in terms of features (front strap checkering, rounded butts, etc.) And their pricing is attractive. Relatively few models from Colt and Springfield come with front strap checkering (something that I have, over time, come to really appreciate after having bought a number of 1911’s that DON’T have it.) I’ve caught some drift here and there that SIG quality (perhaps regarding their non-1911 models?)...

    Just as Elon Musk’s revolutionary Hyperloop technology was starting to look like a serious business model, there are signs that one of the most promising companies commercializing the technology may be facing some serious internal problems. Hyperloop One is one of the two most prominent companies trying to develop commercial versions of the Hyperloop. The company is now facing an explosive lawsuit from one of its co-founders, which may end up permanently derailing the firm’s ambitions. Hyperloop One is based in downtown LA and claims to be building a fifth mode of transportation based on Elon Musk’s original concept. The...

It is now up to citizens to ensure that the 2016 election is not stolen, like some Third World Banana Republic election The 2016 election is so crucial to America’s future, it appears Democratic Party operatives are willing to break every election rule and law in order to win. California’s June 7 Primary election was tainted by rigged voting machines, forced party affiliation changes of long-time voters, and voter purges of newly registered voters.

    Entrepreneurs looking to open a business in Detroit face licensing fees of up to $1,500 depending on the type of business. If a business isn't licensed or is not licensed properly, it is subject to stiff fines or even a complete shutdown. According to documents on the city of Detroit's website, furniture movers must pay a $178 licensing fee and $25 each for more than one vehicle plate. Anyone looking to open a bathhouse in the city will have to pay a $138 licensing fee while animal hide haulers must pay $35 for the first plate and $12 for the...
  • How Some Cities Dodge the Unfunded Pension Liability Trap

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 7/23/2016 | Josh Paladino
    When a city fails to properly fund employee pensions in the year they are earned, it creates an unfunded liability that will require more money later to backfill the obligation. Since municipalities have limited budgets, they typically cut from police, fire, and other community services to pay the deferred pension costs. Flint is one example out of many. The cost of catching up on past pension underfunding has skyrocketed, and the city now pays $20.4 million every year — a 50 percent increase since 2010. Filling this hole now consumes 42 percent of Flint’s general fund budget. But some local...

    Article V Blog ^ | July 26th 2016 | Rodney Dodsworth
    The pull of democracy often overwhelms societies. As men are naturally drawn to the scent of a woman, passion instead of reason lures societies toward all power to the people. Why shouldn’t our representatives, senators and presidents be popularly elected? Because democracy isn’t perfume but rather a poison that terminates in tyranny. The electoral process of Article II was designed to avoid a popularly derived president. In a recent post I showed how the Framers designed their presidential election process around two goals. First, only men of national stature, wisdom, experience and virtue would be considered. Second, the winner would...

We trusted you!” chanted factions of the audience comprised of individuals who were apparent supporters of Bernie Sanders and were seemingly upset with Warren’s endorsement of Clinton. Loud boos and jeers came soon after, when the Massachusetts senator said it was imperative that Clinton and Tim Kaine, her running mate, were elected to the White House.

Then Sarah Silverman showed up. The comedian was a Sanders supporter in the primary, and she came to the stage with Clinton supporter and fellow "Saturday Night Live" alum, Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.). It was a good idea in theory: Two comedians trying to bring some levity to the situation and defuse it with humor. But feelings were still raw. Silverman argued for unity and...

Blumenthal’s the Clintonista who lied about Monica Lewinsky, claiming she was a “stalker” of the then-president when in reality she was just another of Slick Willy’s flings.

This wealth was accumulated during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as US Secretary of State through lucrative speaking fees and contracts paid for by foreign companies and Clinton Foundation donors.

    You will not soon forget that Hillary laughed about the fact she got Taylor off for raping the 12-year-old child Recently I wrote an article about Hillary Clinton and one of her many scandals: Travelgate. Today, we are revisiting another scandal regarding Hillary regarding her defense of a rapist in 1975. According to a 2008 Newsday story, by Glenn Thrush, Hillary talks about her ‘35 years of experience making change and recounted her work in the 70s on behalf of battered and neglected children and impoverished legal aid clients.’ But, what she did not talk about in her campaign speech...

    Thumb on the scale: WikiLeaks leaves no doubt: Entire Democrat primary race was rigged to ensure Hillary win I don’t know what Rob will do without Debbie Wasserman Schultz, one of his favorite foils. First Jennifer Granholm faded into irrelevance, and now DWS has resigned as chairman of the Democratic National Committee in the aftermath of the WikiLeaks document dump that proves she and the DNC were in cahoots with the Hillary campaign throughout the primary race against Bernie Sanders. Ah yes, Hillary. I’ve often told you that Hillary Clinton is neither smart nor accomplished, and that people constantly overestimate...

    If something hurts the Left, it mysteriously disappears from Twitter or gets suppressed or downplayed Given what we know about Twitter and the leftists who run its Thought Police force, my off-the-cuff guess is YES, Twitter did it. Twitter doesn’t deserve the presumption of innocence in the court of public opinion because it is a serial offender. According to the Washington Examiner‘s Rudy Takala:

    The Coach's Team ^ | 7/25/16 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    The frustration that Hillary Clinton is feeling as she chases Donald Trump around the battleground state must be palpable. Make no mistake, the “scientific” polls showing her ahead of Trump aren’t fooling Hillary. She knows she’s trailing already. Clinton’s situation reminds us of the old story about the dog food CEO who holds an emergency meeting because sales are stagnant. With fire in his voice the CEO screams at his executive core asking: Why, if they have the best packaging; the best placement and the best prices are sales flat? No one wanted to speak but after a minute of...

    The Dems are going into hiding mode, even when there’s nowhere to hide Yo, Malik, now that it’s out of the bag that you intend to vote for Donald J. Trump, you’ll definitely need to watch your back. Many of us know that too many graves vote Democrat. Over there in the charming but remote village of Kogelo, Kenya , you may not be seeing so clearly that your former Democrat Party’s got its progressive panties in a real twist. WikiLeak’s outed Hillary Clinton and The Donald’s coming to get her. In a stampede like never before the Democrats are...

  • Is This The Next Big Headache For Oil Prices?

    When oil analysts look at the markets to try to get a sense of where oil prices are heading, one of the great unknowns, at least in the U.S. shale industry, is the large volume of drilled but uncompleted wells (DUCs). As oil prices began collapsing two years ago, shale drillers increasingly decided to defer the completion of their drilled wells, hoping to wait out the downturn and bring production online at a later point when prices rebounded. But with oil prices suffering from a prolonged downturn, the DUCS began to mount, leaving a huge backlog of potential production that...

    Philly Cops Blast Hillary Over Black Lives Matter & Co. July 25, 2016, Malcolm A. Kline The media and academia may regard them as a source of multicultural wisdom but local police have to look at what groups like Black Lives Matter actually do. “The Fraternal Order of Police is insulted and will not soon forget that the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton are excluding the widows, and other family members of Police Officers killed in the line of duty who were victims of explicit, and not implied racism and ‘being on duty in blue,’” John J. McNesby, President of...
