    since siding with those who support gun control, business has gone down at Dick’s Sporting Goods and the company may have to close Field & Stream: Edward Stack, chairman and CEO of Dick’s, said during the event that the sporting goods chain’s recent 3.9 percent drop in same-store sales was the result of a mix of factors beyond their control as well as some he called “self-imposed.” Specifically, he said, “the decisions we made on firearms” negatively affected their bottom line but the drop in sales was something they expected. They did not, however, regret their decision to change a...
  • satire - Aides Force Ocasio-Cortez To Watch Entire Run Of 'Schoolhouse Rock!'

    11/27/2018 4:40:10 PM PST · by Behind Liberal Lines · 42 replies
    After Ocasio-Cortez entered her office Tuesday, aides gently guided her to a special room they'd prepared with every season of Schoolhouse Rock! prepped and ready to go. The woman furrowed her brow and nodded slowly as the cartoon characters talked about basic concepts like the three chambers of government, the process of a bill becoming law, and how money works. "I thought Bill was the president a while ago?" she said confusedly, causing an assistant to pause the show and slowly explain what a congressional bill is. "See how the singing piece of paper is trying to become a law?"...

    What does it take to get a U.S. House member to...very publicly threaten to nuke American citizens who want to defend their constitutional rights under the Second Amendment? Nothing more than pushing back on Twitter against that congressman, Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.)'s proposal from earlier this year to fully ban and buy back every one of what he wants to designate as "assault weapons" with the added bonus of "criminally prosecut[ing] any who choose to defy it." Rep. Swalwell, willing to make sure the war against any possible American citizen resistance over gun confiscation doesn't fall into the endless quagmire of...

    NBC News ^ | Nov. 8, 2018 / 5:10 PM EST | By Janelle Griffith
    The creators of the show “South Park” have issued a rare apology, reprising the character ManBearPig to make amends for a dis that is more than a decade old. In a 2006 episode during season 10 of the animated series, Al Gore issues a stern warning to the students of South Park Elementary School about the “single biggest threat to our planet.” He was talking about ManBearPig, a creature meant to represent climate change... “South Park” was effectively mocking the global issue at the center of “An Inconvenient Truth.” Now, 12 years later, show creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker...

    ABC News ^ | NEW YORK — Nov 5, 2018, 9:20 PM ET | By DAVID BAUDER, AP MEDIA WRITER
    NBC, Fox News Channel and Facebook all said Monday they will stop airing President Donald Trump's campaign advertisement that featured an immigrant convicted of killing two police officers.

    CBS Radio ^ | 11/02/18
    Two New York lawmakers are working to draft a bill that would propose a social media check before a gun purchase. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and state Sen. Kevin Palmer’s proposal would allow authorities to review three years of social media history and one year of internet search history of any person seeking to purchase a firearm.... The two are hoping to identify any hate speech on social media profiles, which are often revealed only after someone is arrested in a mass shooting.

    New York Times ^ | Oct. 29, 2018 | By Stephanie Saul
    Mr. O’Rourke was perceived by many as siding with the moneyed elite against angry barrio residents, small business owners and even the Jesuit priests who ministered to the immigrant community at Sacred Heart Church. “Mr. O’Rourke was basically the pretty face of this very ugly plan against our most vulnerable neighborhoods,” said David Dorado Romo, a local historian who says the episode resurrected longstanding race and class divisions in the city. Barrio residents feared they would lose their homes through eminent domain, and a city-funded branding study suggested that the residents of El Paso were perceived as “dirty” and “lazy.’’...

    ALBANY — With Democrats targeting veteran Sen. Martin Golden’s Brooklyn seat, the Senate GOP this past weekend offered to put volunteers who came to help the incumbent from outside the district up in hotels. An email obtained by the Daily News sent from the personal account of Michael Ostrander, the special assistant to Senate secretary Francis Patience, urged people to volunteer to do door-knocking in the district this past Saturday. “The opposition is coming after him hard so we’ll need a good turnout for the Senator,” Ostrander wrote. “Please let your volunteers know of this opportunity and the importance of...

    the lib spin is now that Graham had an “unhinged meltdown” because of course it is. There was nothing unhinged about the words coming out of Lindsey Graham’s mouth yesterday. He had more sense in his pinky finger than the entire Democratic party combined. Whatever. The libs are going with crap like this: "Oh my god. This is every woman’s nightmare. This is a terrifying image." https://t.co/mIgEN2ALhj — Maria Shriver (@mariashriver) September 27, 2018 um… "Just asked my wife.

  • South Park Perfectly Captures America's Apathy With Multiple School Shootings

    09/27/2018 8:13:58 AM PDT · by Behind Liberal Lines · 15 replies
    More than 30 children have already been murdered this year in school shootings. It’s hard to even get an exact count of the deaths in classrooms and how many school shootings there have been in 2018, because most tallies don’t account for guns near school property, others just aren’t up to date. And even more outrageous is how routine it is today, that these incidents come and go in the regular news cycle. In the final episode of South Park’s 19th season in 2015—one of its greatest of all time, which it hasn’t recreated since—the show satirized America’s obsession with...

    Fully half of self-identified Republicans don’t believe Democrats are likely to win back the House. And within that group, 57 percent of people who describe themselves as strong Trump supporters don’t believe Democrats have a chance (37 percent believe they do). … “If overconfident Republican voters stay home, Democrats could win a landslide,” Josh Green writes. “The report urges GOP officials to yank their voters back to reality: ‘We need to make real the threat that Democrats have a good shot of winning control of Congress.'”
