  • US Supreme Court gives nod to assault weapons ban

    12/08/2015 9:40:56 AM PST · by Enlightened1 · 41 replies
    In a 7-2 vote, the high court's justices refused to take up a challenge to a Chicago suburb's ban on the sale or possession of semi-automatic weapons or high-capacity magazines with more than 10 rounds of ammunition. The court's move is a small victory for activists against the spread of such guns, which can potentially kill many people in a short period of time. "By rejecting this case, today the Supreme Court sided with a community that has taken action to protect itself from the type of violence we've seen in San Bernardino, on college campuses and in movie theaters,"...

    University advises ‘nodding’ at an assailant will prevent attack Women who are about to be raped at or near the University of Arkansas at Little Rock should nod at their attackers as an alternative to using deadly force, according to that university’s safety expert. Huh? The Arkansas legislature recently gave schools the authority to opt out of the state’s concealed carry laws and thereby ban guns on campus. Most schools have chosen to do so, including Arkansas State University and the University of Arkansas, as reported by The College Fix. The ban extends to even professors and staff members, leaving...
  • Campus bans guns, tells people to nod at attackers

    In lieu of guns, people who find themselves in dangerous situations at or near the University of Arkansas should defend themselves by glancing and nodding, said a university safety expert. Earlier this year, the Arkansas legislature approved a concealed carry law, but gave school administrators permission to override the law and ban guns on campuses. Most Arkansas universities, including the University of Arkansas and Arkansas State University, opted to prohibit concealed carry, according to The College Fix. But disarmed faculty and staff members are vulnerable to attack when traveling to and from campus, according to a chain of emails sent...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) - Finance chiefs from the G7 industrialized countries have endorsed nuclear energy, an increasingly attractive power source as governments confront global warming and over-dependence on fossil fuels. The Group of Seven, following a meeting here Friday, described energy diversification as an important priority for both rich and poor nations. "Diversification can include advanced energy technologies such as renewable, nuclear and clean coal," said the ministers and central bank governors from Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States. The group at previous meetings had been unable to agree on a text citing nuclear power, notably in...

    Again, I am confronted by our yearly PC Celibration of Diversity. Today, I was shuffling through my bosses "to do" list and I found my self, scheduled for diversity training. I am not blaiming him for subjecting me to the one occasion that would get me fired, great guy I was his mentor, he is on the way to achieving all that I saw in him. I have opinions that border on Social Darwinism, every one will achieve what they can, I hate big gov, and I accept people as they are. Damn it, I am a libertarian with out...

    Former US president Bill Clinton wins another Grammy nod 2 hours, 9 minutes ago LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Former US president Bill Clinton, movie star Steve Martin, actor John Lithgow and comedienne Ellen DeGeneres won places alongside the world's top musicians as Grammy Award nominees. An unlikely nominee, Clinton won his second consecutive nod for music's top awards in the best spoken word album category for the recording of his best-selling autobiography "My Life." Earlier this year, the former leader of the free world won a golden gramophone statuette for lending his voice to the spoken word recording of Russian...
  • In the spirit of Debate time, THE NOD -Bush/Gore Dingle-Norwood

    The Nod. Perhaps THE turning point in the campaign came at the 9 minute and 45 second mark of Debate Number 3. In what I believe was a calculated attempt to intimidate Bush, Gore walks up to Bush, sticks his hand in his pocket, gets even closer... Bush is in the middle of giving a good response on HMOs, sees Gore, nods, and then ignores him and proceeds with his statement. The audience laughs. IT DIDN'T WORK! Gore knew it. Look at his reaction as he realizes that Naomi Wolf's latest "Alpha Male" ploy didn't work, as he was looking...

    Chicago-AP -- There won't be any endorsement just yet from the A-F-L - C-I-O. The labor group isn't going to decide right away which candidate to support for the Democratic presidential nomination. At a meeting in Chicago, the group heard this week from Dick Gephardt -- who was hoping to get the endorsement -- and also from his competitors. Gephardt has already put together a lot of support from labor groups. Only twice before has the A-F-L - C-I-O picked a favorite as Democrats competed for delegates. It gave the nod to Walter Mondale and later to Al Gore. Labor...
