    In 2016, SB 1736/HB2033 was passed in the Tennessee legislature. The bill was an attempt to hold businesses that chose to ban defensive firearms from their premises responsible for damages. That was a step to far for the Tennessee legislature. The bill was cut back to say that businesses that did not ban firearms would be immune from lawsuit for actions that resulted from their lack of a ban. In Missouri, Representative Schroer has introduced a bill, HB 96, that is very similar to the original HB 2033 in Tennessee. From news-leader.com: The proposal, known as House Bill 96,...

    Fight for 15 looks down for the count. Andy Puzder understands what almost no liberals have even the slightest clue about: Businesses exist to maximize profit. If an employee enjoys prosperity as a result of providing value to the business and being commensurately rewarded, that’s a good thing that makes everyone happy. But the purpose of the business is not to make employees rich just for the sake of it. It’s to make the shareholders rich. So when dopes take to the streets demanding a minimum wage of $15 with their mindless #FightFor15, Puzder understand exactly what that will mean....

    Whilst Russia and America continue to fiddle - Syria and Iraq bleed and burn. The United States and Russia seem set to jointly confront their common enemy - Islamic State - once President-elect Donald Trump is sworn into office on 20 January 2017. This possibility emerged after a telephone call between Trump and Vladimir Putin following Trump’s stunning presidential victory on 8 November. President Obama’s failure to co-operate with Putin for the last two years in seeking to degrade and destroy Islamic State has resulted in hundreds of thousands of needless civilian deaths and injuries and the internal and external...

    California's Sanctuary Cities California’s new Democrat supermajority used Monday’s usually congenial legislative swearing-in ceremonies to ram through Assembly and Senate resolutions insisting President-elect Donald Trump abandon his immigration deportation policies—at least in California. California is home to the largest illegal-alien population in the country, with 35 sanctuary cities. President-elect Trump has vowed to build a border wall and deport immigrants that have a criminal record, which he estimates to be two-three million.

Sadly, a man named Miguel Angel Villasenor-Saucedo, 40, was driving a truck that night. Hit struck, and killed, both women. He then escaped the scene on foot. Authorities are currently searching for Villasenor-Saucedo, but none of this needed to happen. That’s because they’ve had their perpetrator in custody before. As the DOJ informs us, Villasenor-Saucedo is a known illegal immigrant who has a long history of legal troubles…

And that—along with his recent choice of Ben Carson as Housing and Urban Development secretary—is making advocates across the country worried.

    You’ve likely heard the spin lines and talking points from Obama loyalists claiming Barack Obama’s presidency netted the longest period of job growth in the last xyz years or maybe even “ever.” It’s a shame that people view things through shaded glasses and bias. In the case of this so-called “continued job growth,” we need to examine the claims and determine what has actually “grown.” At this point, we have more federal workers than ever before. More than 1.4 million people collecting government salaries according to the congressional budget. That’s a 10 percent jump from the time Obama took office....

    Sanctuary City policies encourage human trafficking of illegal aliens and whether mayors, supervisors and complicit law enforcement officers are also complicit in those crimes? Every time the issue of illegal aliens or deportation comes up, the Left, argues against something they know isn’t going to happen. But the reason the Left always brings the conversation to the line, “how are you going to round up and deport 15 million undocumented immigrants?” is not to get an answer, It is to get you to feel bad for even thinking about deporting anyone. Because they know it isn’t going to happen the...

    Many people view Texas as an extremely gun friendly state. Texas has been becoming gun friendly, but the image has not been entirely deserved. The Texas Legislature only restored partial open carry rights last year, after banning most open carry for a hundred and thirty years after Reconstruction.  Open carry still requires a permit from the state. The permit fee is $140, putting it out of the reach of many people.  State Representative Jonathan Stickland wants to change that. From caller.com: “It’s time in Texas to restore our Second Amendment rights to their originally intended level,” said state Rep....

As for the fat part, defense contractors are used to the idea that cost overruns are no issue with the Pentagon because whatever they order they have to have, and have right away.

But the way things are set up, there is no way to get the Constitution amended to abolish the Electoral College, she sighed.

Old log books kept by Scott and Shackleton show that Antarctic sea ice hasn’t changed much since 1912 reports Joanne Nova. Experts have been concerned that ice at the South Pole had declined significantly since the 1950s, which they feared was driven by man-made climate change.

    Each year around this time, in Facebook posts and elsewhere, we are certain to be lectured by well-meaning Christians on the "sinfulness" of celebrating Christmas. Their arguments can be persuasive. "In the Bible, God never told us to celebrate Christmas," they say. "Christmas has its roots in paganism," they say. So that must mean we're just dupes celebrating a pagan ritual when we ignorantly think we're gratefully celebrating the birth of Jesus. Who wants to celebrate what God never told us to celebrate and which supposedly has its roots in paganism? Not me! But are those things really true? While...

    By total coincidence I watched two earlier episodes of the Great Indoors last night. It's pretty harsh about Millennials -- they're effeminate, they're lazy, they're addicted to their phones, they want participation trophies just for "trying really hard," they're arrested development children, they get their feelings hurt by everything, etc. After the main character made a Millennial cry, he was taken to a meeting with Human Resources and corporate counsel. The Human Resources woman explained that Millennials are very "fragile" (I think that was the word) and that their are actual corporate consultants who train corporations about how to work...

    As a businessman, his greatest promotional tool is himself, so he will be careful not to tarnish his repute Robert A. Heinlein, in his book, ‘Time Enough For Love’, during an explanation about the many things done in the long life of the main character, wrote, “Reform politicians not only tend to be dishonest but stupidly dishonest - whereas the business politician is honest… I don’t mean that the business politicians won’t steal; stealing is his business. But all politicians are non-productive. The only commodity any politician has to offer is jawbone. His personal integrity - meaning, if he gives...

    Today’s monster, which slithered out from under the bed to follow them through everyday life, is the monster of Marxism, spawn of the devil Calling on the Almighty is no longer encouraged, or even tolerated in the public schools of our day; a day in which no one, other than God can be acceptably insulted. As despairing as it may seem, the way around it is so simple. ‘Prayer proof’ your little one at home before he/she sets foot out the door..

    The CBC owes an apology to Canadians for the video but that is about as likely as Obama expressing condolences over the death of an on-duty police officer. It ain’t going to happen It is the kind of video you expect someone to make and upload to YouTube. It is something completely different when a major broadcaster airs it. And it is more disgusting when the video is made and aired by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation that is subsidized by the taxpayers to the tune of over $1 billion a year. The video on the November 29th episode of This...

    Four years of pain. As I’ve pointed out before, the Democrats didn’t just lose an election in November. Their defeat wasn’t as simple as one presidential race. As I wrote on Election Day, this one was for all the marbles. Generations of liberal progressive ideology - both past and future - were on the 2016 ballot. Had Democrats won, they would have owned the Supreme Court and the concept of the United States as a constitutionally-limited republic would have been decimated. Instead, the left was roundly rejected.

    Things work differently now. Deal with it Get used to this: America elects a president who does not do things in conventional ways, in large part because Americans have lost faith in the political class’s conventional ways of doing things. So here comes the new president, not following convention because he has little use for it. The political class, which despises this man and refuses to accept that there could possibly be anything wrong with the way they’ve always done things, reacts to the new president’s every eschewing of convention by proclaiming: He’s so stupid! He doesn’t know how things...

    Under the presidency of Barack Obama, border patrol agents have been diverted from their duty of securing the borders from border violators, gangs, and cartels that traffic in drugs and even human beings. U.S. border patrol agents have, instead, become uniformed baby sitters. That’s according to Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan who came to U.S. Customs and Border Protection after a 30-year miltary career that included FBI operations in Iraq and leading the agency’s global command for anti-terrorism and border security operations. In a testimony to the Senate Homeland Security Committee he gave lawmakers the disturbing details on what’s going...

    The Village Gun is my name for an old Springfield 84-C.  My father acquired the rifle and a state of the art Weaver 3/4 inch straight tube scope for $7.50 during the Depression. I have written in previous articles that the Village Gun was used by my father and the neighbors for deer hunting. The Village Gun wasn't primarily used for deer hunting. There are dozens of things a .22 rifle is used for on a farm at the edge of wild country.  The Village gun was probably used for most of them, over the roughly 60 years of...

    Chinese robots appear to be bringing to an end a path of "serial industrialisation" across Asia that has run for 60-odd years, says Hong Kong-based Bernstein analyst and ex-pat Kiwi Michael Parker. In a research note entitled Adam Smith vs Chinese Robots...The end of The Wealth of Nations, in one chart (not ours), Parker points out that instead of shedding low cost manufacturing as it develops, China is getting rid of the workers but not the work. Parker notes that Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations, published in 1776, remained broadly relevant to capital allocation decisions globally for 240 years. Basically,...
