    Acting U.S. Attorney William Fitzpatrick and state Attorney General Christopher Porrino will announce several initiatives to combat gun violence in New Jersey, including a two-day statewide gun buyback program in three cities this summer. A formal announcement is expected at 1 p.m. in Trenton, but the gun buyback initiative being planned would include locations in Newark, Camden and Trenton, according to a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's office. The joint federal and state announcement comes after a deadly start to the summer. The amount of money made available for buybacks was not disclosed ahead of the annoucement.

    Offended? Go hassle Merriam-Webster, not us Apple fanbois are officially sheeple. So says American dictionary Merriam-Webster.The American lexicologists added the term of endearment to their tome yesterday, a mere 72 years after its first recorded use in the English language.Helpfully, and entirely non-inflammatorily, Merriam-Webster's people gave two examples of "sheeple" being used in a sentence. The first was a fairly neutral example of a farmer being rude to his neighbours. The second... well, here it is for your amusement/enragement (delete as appropriate):Apple's debuted a battery case for the juice-sucking iPhone Ė an ungainly lumpy case the sheeple will happily shell...
  • United Airlines and our culture of perpetual outrage

    UMassd Daily Collegian ^ | 4/17/17 | Polumbo
    But we have to ask, do the facts really justify this level of outrage? After all, United approached this overbooked flight in the same way that airlines across the country do every day. Dao was given many chances to leave the flight peacefully, and blatantly refused to do so. In airports post-9/11, this type of behavior is not tolerated as there is a greater emphasis on the expectation to comply with the instructions of airline personnel for safety reasons. After Dao dug his feet in, all United did was call the airport police. Anything that occurred after that point was...

    It was the most awkward and divisive of questions that I would ask of other parents, usually new acquaintances, but also of old friends. We‚Äôd be on the phone, discussing our young children, laughing, and the subject of play dates would come up. The other mom might say, ‚ÄúCan Chloe come over here tomorrow to play with Maddie?‚ÄĚ I would ask, ‚ÄúDo you keep guns in your house?‚ÄĚ Always it would lead to the most illuminating of answers, whether yes or no. If the response was negative, the parent would answer immediately, following up with something like, ‚ÄúNo, never. We...

    Several of Syed Farook's neighbors told ABC News they noticed "suspicious activity" at the home of the San Bernardino shooter, as well as his mother's home at another location. No reports were made, however, for fear of being accused of racial profiling. One of Farook’s neighbors told ABC 7 Los Angeles that "he was friendly" and "good with children." Another seemed dumbfounded, saying he "just wouldn’t expect" Farook to commit a mass shooting. Dane Adams mentioned a police presence at what looked like a "domestic violence dispute" a few months prior. Otherwise, he said, nothing happened in or around the...

    Massachusetts: This Wednesday, Boston Police Commissioner Bill Evans went on Boston Public Radio to discuss how he wanted the anti-gun discretionary provision restored in Senate Bill 2265 so that he could strip law-abiding gun owners of their rights to possess rifles and shotguns in Boston. Completely out of touch with reality, Evans stated: ďFor the most part, nobody in the city needs a shotgun, nobody needs a rifle, and I donít know a lot of people who are into hunting who, being lifelong residents, would actually want that who lives in the city, but, especially here in the city I...

    Tools.One year into his second term and already 71% of DEMOCRATS regret voting for this Keynesian wreck. Washington Examiner reported: Over seven in 10 Obama voters, and 55 percent of Democrats, regret voting for President Obamaís reelection in 2012, according to a new Economist/ poll. Conducted to test the media hype about a comeback by 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, the new poll found voters still uninspired by Romney, but also deeply dissatisfied with Obama who has so far failed to capitalize on his victory over 15 months ago. The poll asked those who voted for Obamaís reelection a...

    Gallup ^ | 11/12/2013 | Andrew Dugan
    With momentum building at the federal and state level to increase hourly base pay, more than three-quarters of Americans (76%) say they would vote for raising the minimum wage to $9 per hour (it is currently $7.25) in a hypothetical national referendum, a five-percentage-point increase since March. About one-fifth (22%) would vote against this. Voters in New Jersey amended the state constitution last week to raise the minimum wage $1 to $8.25, by 61% to 39%. Yet a Gallup poll conducted Nov. 5-6 shows that an even greater percentage of Americans would vote for an even higher minimum wage. Of...

    When you place power in the hands of inept idiots, then you foster the rule of ďineptocracy.Ē You give power to the least capable and the least deserving. In the process, you may wonder why there is less and less in society to admire and enjoy. Itís because the idiots given the power they never deserved are not capable of producing anything. I ran across a t-shirt that says everything about the state of our country today: Ineptocracy: A system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members...

    A person needs to understand how ďPowerĒ is distributed among the levels of the Triad.

The Second or middle level (the Congress, the courts, the states), who implement corrupt policies and trample liberties, and the Third level are the masses (sheeple), you and I that get NOTHING.

    1. The single most depressing thing to watch is the 36 hour news cycle of the populus. I can't understand it. I can't understand how it is that you people just collectively let massive, massive crimes go as soon as the media spoon-feeds you the next "big story". This has to be a function of the diabolical coupled with God withdrawing His grace. Memory is a gift from God. To choose to not use it, to choose to suppress it is a sin. 2. Um, yeah, it was reported about 48 hours ago (now outside the window, apparently) that the...
