    The Evolution of Clinton Excuses 1. I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky. I never told anybody to lie, not a single time. Ever. These allegations are false. 2. It all depends on what your definition of is, is. 3. Its a vast right wing conspiracy. 4. Its just another thing to throw against the wall to see if it sticks. 5. I dont recall. 6. At this point, what does it matter? 7. We didnt do anything wrong. 8. We didnt know we were doing anything wrong. 9. You cant prove we knew we were...

  • Obama Action To End Civilian Marksmanship Program Sales Of Returned Military Firearms

    08/30/2013 9:56:29 AM PDT · by Sasparilla · 12 replies
    For over a century, the government sanctioned CMP and its predecessor, The Department of Civilian Marksmanship, imported military firearms such as M-1 Garands, M1 Carbines, Springfield 30.06, 1917 Enfield rifes, training rifle .22's and similar rifles, and sold them to members of gun clubs affiliated with the CMP. These rifles had been loaned to foreign governments and were returned by those governments to American taxpayers who footed the bill for their manufacture. The latest government to return such firearms was South Korea which returned M1 Carbines to the CMP. Hillary Clinton, with Obama's blessing, banned the return of some 200,000...
  • California Representative Henry Waxman Introduces Bill to Ban "Assault Weapons" Parts Kits

    As California Congressman Henry Waxman promised, he has introduced a Bill to ban the sale of “Parts kits” for “Assault Rifles, Assault Shotguns, and Assault Pistols." This also includes a ban on Receiver blanks. The Bill defines an “assault weapons parts kit as: “ any part or combination of parts not designed and intended for repair or replacement but designed and intended to enable a consumer who possesses all such necessary parts to assemble a semiautomatic assault weapon…” Which raised the question of vagueness in the law as to which components of an “Assault Weapons Parts Kits” could be sold...
  • New Anti Gun Rights Bills Move Along

    01/10/2013 11:23:53 AM PST · by Sasparilla · 4 replies
    Text of new Bills with new firearms regulations have been published. However, what may be the worst, the full text of Feinstein’s Senate “Assault weapons” Bill hasn't been released yet. From Rep. Jim Moran, (HR 21) what he ironically calls “The NRA Members Gun Safety Act” which proffers “Commonsense, popular, publicly polled, non-controversial gun safety measures that a majority of NRA members support, yet are opposed by the leadership at the NRA.” Hidden in various requirements such as ‘Prohibiting individuals on the terrorist watch list from purchasing firearms,” is an onerous requirement for all states to require applicants for a...
  • Why Armed Security Inside Schools Will Work, And Why Detractors Are Apoplectic

    12/28/2012 11:28:23 AM PST · by Sasparilla · 7 replies
    Rather than even consider armed security being put to use in schools immediately to try to stop another mass killing that could happen as this is read, excuses as to why not to do it are flying off the shelf faster than liberal campaign promises. Those excuses why armed security will not work in schools are astonishing. And, they are factually challenged and pathetic too. “We can’t pay for it.” That’s a real corker from those who use taxes and fees to pay for every social program ever known to man. That’s the same group who enforced payment for Obama...
  • New Illinois Concealed Carry Ruling May Face Big Obstacles

    Although there’s been a breakthrough in the strict laws against concealed carry of firearms in Illinois 1, there may be some dark clouds in an expansion of gun rights in oppressive Illinois. There are several potential problems. The well publicized 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has left the door open to Illinois granting concealed carry permits to carry a concealed firearm just as is it is handled in New York state. Although it’s a giant leap in Illinois gun rights, before anyone gets overly excited, the fact is that the Court left the door open in Illinois to restrictive Concealed...
  • Carrying a gun does not provide ANY realistic possibility of self defense

    08/28/2012 8:53:28 AM PDT · by Sasparilla · 48 replies
    Denying that law abiding citizens have a right to carry a sidearm to defend themselves, an anti gun rights organization has published what has to be the most disingenuous post ever to appear on an anti gun website. The group said last week that, “Carrying a gun does not provide ANY realistic possibility of self defense—the element of surprise ALWAYS defeats the gun carrier.” They call that “Gun fact #1.” The author of the opinion further states that, an armed criminal will not approach you and challenge you to "Draw." They say that the thug will have the "Drop" on...
  • Obama Lied To The Illinois Bar About Barry Soetoro

    08/18/2012 8:41:03 AM PDT · by Sasparilla · 49 replies
    Why did Barack Obama lie about never using the name Barry Soetoro on his Registration with the Illinois Bar Association? "Full Former names" is the second question on the ATTORNEY'S REGISTRATION AND PUBLIC DISCIPLINARY RECORD. However, instead of Listing "Barry Soetoro," he wrote the word "NONE" on the "Former Names Used" line. The Bar wants to know EVERYTHING on the background about its members, and generally do not look kindly on deception by applicants or members. This could have lead to more questions about "Barry Soetoro" if he disclosed that name. Such as, when, where, and how was it used....
  • You Can Keep Your Doctor If You Want To…Unless He Is Run Out Of Business By The ACA

    “A physician shortage was already expected before ACA was signed into law in March 2010, and now that gap could worsen. According to projections released last fall by the AAMC Center for Workforce Studies, there will be a shortage of about 63,000 doctors by 2015, with greater shortages on the horizon—91,500 and 130,600 for 2020 and 2025, respectively.” 1. How will this actually affect the number of practicing Physicians? The outlook is not good. Two of every three practicing physicians oppose the medical overhaul plan... and hundreds of thousands would think about shutting down their practices or retiring early if...

  • United Nations To Convene Month Long Conference For International Gun Control Treaty In July

    As Spain deals with a bailout to "save" the economy and the country, and while the country is engaged in its worst financial crisis in recent memory, the Spanish Parliament took time this week to push for adoption of the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. This is the Treaty that will infringe on the US Constitution, the Second Amendment, and your right to self defense. The United Nations and specially invited anti firearms rights groups who want to eliminate our firearms freedoms will be convening at the UN July 2nd through the 27th to draft a Treaty to accomplish the...

    "Obama is a socialist" seems to be one of the mantras of the right, but while most mantras are grounded in ideology and wishful thinking, this one appears firmly rooted in the evidence. A report by Stanley Kurtz in an upcoming issue of the National Review shows that Obama not only has ties to a leftist-socialist party, but that he also tried to cover those ties in 2008 as he ran for election. LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Kurtz, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center explains in his article that Obama was an active member...
  • Here's How The Obama Campaign Is Trying To Capitalize On The Wisconsin Election Failure

    06/06/2012 12:31:11 PM PDT · by Sasparilla · 15 replies
    Here's the Obama Fundraising email received this morning. 06/16/2012 “What just happened in Wisconsin wasn't an accident. Republican Governor Scott Walker and his allies outspent the Democratic challenger nearly EIGHT to ONE -- and one of the most unpopular governors in the country managed to hold on. This result is direct confirmation that all the outside money that's poured into elections this cycle can and will change their outcome. And it's exactly what could happen on the national stage unless we can close the gap between special interests and ordinary people. Please donate $3 or more to support President Obama...
