    An analysis of mass shootings in the United States since the year 2002 shows that gun wielding mass killers are more likely to strike where the Second Amendment right to bear arms has been supplanted by "gun-free zone" ordinances; be they federal, local, or specified by the owner of the property. The Stanford University Libraries' dataset of mass shootings ("Stanford Mass Shootings in America, courtesy of the Stanford Geospatial Center and Stanford Libraries") was analyzed for mass shootings over the past 14 years.The definition of a mass shooting for the Stanford database is three or more shooting victims injured or...

    Part One is exactly as advertised. If you are going to be offended by Profanity go read something else. There, I've done my part. Profanity serves a purpose in the military. General Patton explained; "When I want my men to remember something important, to really make it stick, I give it to them double dirty. It may not sound nice to some bunch of little old ladies at an afternoon tea party, but it helps my soldiers to remember. You can't run an Army without profanity; and it has to be eloquent profanity.

    I think we now know why Ben Carson and his campaign are making such a fuss over Ted Cruz’s campaign. The Cruz camp took advantage of the Carson campaign’s misstep in Iowa. The Carson campaign generated headlines that Carson was packing it up after Iowa and heading back to Florida. It read to a lot of people, including the Cruz camp, that Carson was dropping out.No, according to Carson, he just needed clean clothes.But since then, the Carson camp has bludgeoned Ted Cruz’s campaign for daring to rapidly respond to Carson’s news far more rapidly than Carson walked it back....

Once that violence ebbs, a new strongman will emerge. But not a peaceful, democratic state of Palestine. This week, the UN’s Ban Ki-moon said Palestinian terrorism...

    Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who served during the Obama administration, has turned into a harsh critic of the president, saying that Barack Obama always thinks he's the smartest person in the room. Gates also bashed Obama for bringing on advisers who do little else but constantly agree with his proposals, fostering a group-think environment where dissenting opinion essentially does not exist, The Free Beacon reports. In other words, there are no "strong" people around the president. And when there is dissent, Obama tries to crush it. Back in October, Politico reported that Obama's advisers urged him to deal with...

    "...Truth be told, he is a prodigal son of the establishment. In no real sense is Cruz an outsider. He graduated from Princeton and Harvard. He worked for the George W.

    Conservative talk-radio stars gleefully watched as The Donald rubbed everyone in media and Republican circles the wrong way. But now that he's turned his fire on Cruz, they're picking sides--and it's not Trump's. In a gentler, tenderer age--an age long gone--Donald Trump brought talk radio hosts together.
