  • Sorry Democrats, But There Is No ‘Loophole’ That Allows Terrorists To Legally Buy Guns

    11/24/2015 4:59:57 PM PST · by rktman · 8 replies ^ | 11/24/2015 | Dean Weingarten
    Having overwhelmingly lost the public debate about whether the Obama administration’s Syrian refugee screening policy should be enhanced, Democrats have retreated to more comfortable rhetorical ground: demanding more gun control. Their new secret weapon? A bill that would ban anyone whose name appears on a terror watch list from buying or possessing a firearm. The idea sounds reasonable enough until you dig into the details and realize that the proposed Democratic legislation is a shocking assault on the constitutional right to due process. What makes the proposal even worse is that the Democrats’ assault on due process isn’t necessary to...

(Proverbs 12:17)We see often such claims in the media such as that "millions in people here in American could be staring at an empty plate," "49 million people [approx. 1 out of 6 in American]...face hunger," "millions of Americans go to bed hungry," "1 in 7 people struggles with hunger in the US," (Feeding America) or "1 in 6 people in America faces hunger every day," ( or "50 million Americans—including 1 out of every 4 children—do not know where...

    There is SOME good news for gun owners. Conservative Kansas Governor Sam Brownback just signed new legislation bolstering the right to bear arms. When asked why he passed such a broad bill, Brownback offered great rationale: "Kansans soon can carry concealed weapons without permits or training under a bill signed by Gov. Sam Brownback on Thursday. The new law, which kicks in July 1, makes Kansas the sixth state to allow “constitutional carry.” It will allow Kansans 21 and older to carry concealed firearms regardless of whether they have obtained a permit. Training still will be required for anyone who...

    The Survival Blog ^ | 11/21/15 | TLS
    I have read articles and posts, as well as listened to preppers discuss the use of Calcium Hypochlorite (Cal-Hypo) as a water sanitizer in The-End-Of-The-World-As-We-Know-It (TEOTWAWKI) situations. I owned a swimming pool business for over 20 years, and during that time I used Cal-Hypo, Sodium Dichloro-S-Trianzinetrione (Dichlor), and Sodium Trichloro-S-Trianzinetrione (Trichlor) extensively in both commercial and residential swimming pools. I also installed and maintained many salt-chlorine generator systems. Every time I read about someone planning to use Cal-Hypo for long-term storage to provide water sanitation in TEOTWAWKI, I cringe. Cal-Hypo has many serious shortcomings. The disadvantages are: Cal-Hypo degrades and...

    The chickens of intolerance and communist social justice have come home to roost on the American campus. Decades of Marxist indoctrination by the vaunted communist academia are finally paying off—our cultural heritage is replaced by cultural Marxism and primitive cultures that are deemed superior to ours and worshipped. Academia has been blotting out the past and revising history for a while but with increased vengeance since Jimmy Carter founded the U.S. Department of Education on October 17, 1979. Our children’s education has depreciated considerably as evidenced by test scores and the quality of mis-educated youth in our country who can...

    Gun control is a powder keg of an issue anyway, but selecting an individual as spokesman that reasonable people agree should never be allowed to own a gun, only makes the effort more prone to misfire. And that’s exactly what happened in Virginia. Democrats are convinced the next election is always going to be the one where “gun control” pays off. Except it doesn’t: Election after election after election this favorite issue is a dud at the ballot box. Bitter clingers always manage to out-vote eager grabbers. The problem is particularly acute in off–year, nonpresidential elections. Making gun control’s appearance...

    Why are there so few women killers? Strange enough, almost all killing is committed by men. The reasons vary, but one is most interesting. Men will get very angry about something at work and will go to work and kill a supervisor or coworker. Also, men will get upset about some political issue and will kill a group of innocent people (i.e. recent mass killings in the U.S.). Why don't women do that on a regular basis? Well, some do, but in almost every case those women are living under islam (women suicide bombers). It is the only religion in...

Good scholarship demonstrates the ability to put all aspects of one's research into a broader context. This usually involves a familiarity with the discipline, its literature, and its historiography, as well as its implications in other areas. While Darwin was certainly a master rhetorician (see John Angus Campbell's "Theism, Naturalism, and Persuasive Design: A Rhetorical Analysis of Darwin's Origin"), his scholarship seems more...

    One morning in August, the social science reporter for National Public Radio, a man named Shankar Vedantam, sounded a little shellshocked. You couldn’t blame him.
