Attorney General Eric Holder made a few remarks about the massacre at Newtown, Connecticut´s Sandy Hook Elementary School that should raise some eyebrows. "As a nation I think we have to ask ourselves some hard questions. We gather too often to talk about these kinds of incidents. We need to discuss who we are as a nation, talk about the freedoms that we have, the rights that we have and how those might be used in a responsible way. But for now I think we should concentrate on dealing with the situation in Connecticut and we are doing,
Good Grief! Everybody with any Republican/Libertarian leanings knew this was coming! Like a freight train coming down the tracks this was telegraphed from the first stories about what happened in Connecticut.
The Regime screwed up the" Fast&Furious Debacle. It was inevitable that there would be another incident that would happen to create another assault on the Second Amendment. The real shame of this whole incident is that 20 children (and their unfulfilled life promises), and the other eight who gave their lives as well. Become the tools of a shameful, political agenda, and an end-run on the US Constitution. Will those lives be remember for the way they were taken in this Christmas Season, and the grief of their families? Or will they like Zippy´s Photo-OPs become meaningless pages in a record of The Demon´RAT Political Agenda to wreck 230plus years of American History?
I have seen several psychiatrists and psychologists on the news shows yesterday and today, explaining the inadequacies of our mental health system. And they are correct. That is the issue should be discussed after the school massacre. The guns and other weapons will always be available.
Mental health systems funded by the state and federal governments hires ´counselors´ at the entry level of the system, most of whom without appropriate course work to prepare them for the job. And it is at this entry level where the tough diagnoses must take place, quickly. Compound that weakness in the system with the absolute privacy requirements established by dead ted kennedy´s HIPPA (Health Insurance Portabilitiy/Privacy ACt of 1985) and it is forbidden for the mental health provider to speak with family members without the permission of the patient. So a mentally ill patient is able to prohibit the mental health provider from even talking to the family. And the family usually has the best measure of the problem with the patient, and can offer that valuable information to the provider.
What we must answer are hard questions about ulterior motives, the lengths to which the Alinskian Socialists will go to establish a hedgemony of the elite, and the role that disarming the population plays in that whole scenario.
Meanwhile, remember Fast ´n´ Furious, sit yer stinkin´ tail down, and shut yer hypocritical yap, Holder.
Holder: We Must Answer ´Hard Questions´ About Gun Rights´
Me: You haven´t even answered any soft questions about why you sent 2000 weapons down to Mexico resulting in the deaths of 300 Mexicans and some Americans. You and your lying boss are criminals and should be in prison. Yes President Bush sent a few weapons down there, but they tracked them, something you weren´t swift enough to do, or you didn´t want them tracked back to you. The word is out, you did this as a way to ban guns by blaming gun dealers. I´m mow wondering how many random shootings in the USA now are also part of the same sick plan. You should not be reconfirmed for the job. Criminals should not head up the ´Justice´ Department.
There have been guns in the US for a long time. There have been schools here for almost as long. If guns are the issue, why have we not seen a long line of school shootings prior to about 10-15 years ago? Something else is happening and some guesses have been made: It is too hard to commit those who are seriousy mentally ill. The news media lionizes school shooters with 24 hour coverage--something that must appeal to the deranged sociopaths. The entertainment media, including movies, music, video games, and television is graphically violent and pornographic.
Mr. Holder, how about you answer our numerous questions about "Operation Fast & Furious", and operation you authorized, and an operation which has resulted in the deaths of more than three hundred people in Mexico and two American law enforcement officers?
WHY did you FORCE American gun dealers to sell weapons to Mexico´s most murderous drug cartels?
WHY did you make no attempt to trace those weapons, or interdict them before they crossed the border?
WHY are you hiding behind "Executive Privilege" if you did nothing wrong?
WHY do you think you have the slightest shred of credibility when it comes to the topic of gun control?
When will Rupert Murdoch´s wished for politicians "have the courage" to ban guns? Answer: They already have... Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Castro, Pol Pot...
Does Obama´s blinking during his "mournful" speeches indicate tears? Anser: No, eyes are too dry, must blink...
Do zero-population growth liberals want more children to die? Answer: How else do you explain the ever-expanding killing fields known as gun-free zones, where the mass killers repeatedly go for their rampages?
Do the media want more deaths? Answer: How else do you explain the extravagant show of publicity, known to be the primary motive of these deranged murderers?
Many posters already expressed my first reaction to this article-----let´s have a discussion about F and F first. When we get to the bottom of that scandal we can move onto other discussions. Such as an ouster of the scum that occupies the WH, and fumigation of all federal bureaus and agencies.
Oh, one additional question, Mr. Holder: Why do you liberals hate science? When objective analysis shows that more guns equals less crime, why do you and your allies continue to oppose the one thing that is scientifically proven to lead to less crime? (And less mass-murder and genocide by tyrants, as mentioned before.)
When Mohammad Hamedi Rad arrived in the United States last year, he carried his Iranian passport, a hard-won student visa and a backpack containing $14,000 in hundred dollar bills, because there was no simpler way of getting money into the country. "It was scary," Hamedi Rad, a chemical engineering graduate student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, said of his late-night arrival in Chicago, where he declared the funds to airport customs officials. "I´ve never carried that much money before. I was extremely nervous." Hamedi Rad´s experience is by no means unheard of among many of the thousands of
This spectacle had to have the white-hot spotlight, front page, bold type (whoa-oh!) — to quote one of the evening’s celebrated songwriters — because this Kennedy Center Honors gala was a talker. The night might have begun as the latest parade of cultural icons seated in an opera box with their president, but when a rapper and a Supreme Court justice take the same stage, it isn’t your standard lifetime achievement fete. (Snip) The show — hosted by actress Glenn Close — began with a resounding rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” played by Cuban jazz trumpeter Arturo Sandoval. Should anyone
The "Piano Man" who became one of the world´s best-selling artists of all time with such hits as "Just the Way You Are," "Uptown Girl" and "Allentown" is being awarded the nation´s highest honor Sunday for influencing American culture through the arts. Billy Joel joins Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock, opera star Martina Arroyo and actress Shirley MacLaine in receiving the Kennedy Center Honors. All of them have been playing music, dancing or singing since they were children -- and have never stopped. Joel said the honor stands apart from his six Grammys. "This is different. It´s our nation´s capital," he
Couples should not have children if their relationship is not stable enough to merit getting married, a senior High Court judge said yesterday. Sir Paul Coleridge said those couples whose relationship was stable enough to cope with the rigours of child rearing should marry. But the judge, who is retiring from the bench next year after decades as a family lawyer and judge, said those who did not feel ready for children should not have them. He said couples had no right to have children, “you only have responsibilities if you have them”. Sir Paul criticised warring parents’ obsessions with
Thursday’s sad passing of world civil rights icon Nelson Mandela was a frequent topic of discussion at Friday’s White House daily briefing, as several reporters asked Press Secretary Jay Carney to elaborate on Mandela’s influence, and on details surrounding his funeral. CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta asked about “this great impact” that Mandela had on the President, while repeatedly stressing that President Obama had only met Mandela once. Acosta began with a personal observation, telling Carney that “it just sort of struck me that the President talked about this great impact that he had on his life, but
As an unrelenting wintry storm threatens to choke the Mid-Atlantic into Sunday evening, intrepid NFL players duked it out in Philadelphia amid white-out conditions. The potent system battered the South and Midwest in recent days and now, as it creeps East, it has the Eagles and visiting Detroit Lions both battling major snow. While the blizzard has professional athletes struggling to stay ahead of the weather, a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow is delivering a sloppy smorgasbord from the Mid-Atlantic through southeastern Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey.
The two drugs have been declared equivalently miraculous. Tested side by side in six major trials, both prevent blindness in a common old-age affliction. Biologically, they are cousins. They’re even made by the same company. But one holds a clear price advantage. Avastin costs about $50 per injection. Lucentis costs about $2,000 per injection. Doctors choose the more expensive drug more than half a million times every year, a choice that costs the Medicare program, the largest single customer, an extra $1 billion or more annually. Spending that much may make little sense for a country burdened by ever- rising health
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
