Orange County Register (Ca), by Mark Steyn

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/28/2012 4:49:54 PM

A week ago on NBC´s "Meet The Press," David Gregory brandished on screen a high-capacity magazine. To most media experts, a "high-capacity magazine" means an ad-stuffed double-issue of Vanity Fair with the triple-page perfume-scented pullouts. But apparently in America´s gun-nut gun culture of gun-crazed gun kooks, it´s something else entirely, and it was this latter kind that Mr. Gregory produced in order to taunt Wayne LaPierre of the NRA. As the poster child for America´s gun-crazed gun-kook gun culture, Mr. LaPierre would probably have been more scared by the host waving around a headily perfumed Vanity Fair.

Ignorance of the law is no excuse? C´mon, we have millions of laws, and no one person in this whole country knows the law let alone which precedents that will apply or how the law will be interpreted.

Equality before the law - LPs consider it a quaint concept. But we either insist it be observed or we have already reached full tyranny.

Our laws don´t apply to Democrats, especially black Democrats because of CRT, and left wing elite media types pure and simple. Sad day in America but true.

The government has no business punishing everybody for the sins of the few. But the left never misses a golden opportuinty to transfer America and the Constitution to foreign concepts.

Any kind of broad based gun ban should require a repeal of the 2nd amendment first passed by the House and senate and then sent to the states for repeal.

The left has already conducted a war on free speech by mob attacks on people who speak out of turn against their precious sub groups of voters.Illegal aliens aren´t illegal because there´s no such thing as an illegal person.There´s a new theory of black behavior being blamed on an imaginary disease,not a conscience decision to break the law.

They´re killing religious freedoms with their attacks on Christians and their ability to display their faith in public.The only thing illegal is the state forcing someone to adopt a religious sect they don´t believe in,that doesn´t happen except with the left´s imposition of secularism as a form of religion.They punish thought with hate crimes which to me is unconstitutional and arbitrary.

As usual, I enjoyed every word. Steyn and his wisdom are priceless - probably because they are so rare in modern society. This article points out that sad fact in describing how standards and laws are applied these days.

I don´t recall Steyn mentioning any black people. David Gregory is certainly white.

On the same "Meet the Depressed" program Gregory took issue with the NRA suggestion that armed security guards be deployed in the public schools.

At the same time Gregory failed to tell the country that his children attend a high end private school in D.C., that has eleven security guards on staff, who are also apparently armed policemen.

If David Gregory does not go to prison for an extended period of time, there is no justice in this country. Bill Clinton committed perjury before the entire world and was not punished, but should this "celebrity" escape justice because of his notoriety?

He must be prosecuted! When the feds ban semi-auto rifles and many of the people refuse to surrender them to the fascist government, will the people avoid prosecution? Of course not!

All I was mentioning was that Democrats and the elite leftist media are above the law. CRT is Critical Race Theory is being taught in schools, colleges and churches. The basic summary of CRT is that all laws in this country were written by racist white men and therefore are not applicable to people of color. As a result all the laws in this country need to be rewritten.

Most gun owners laugh at anyone who calls that magazine ´high capacity´.

We know it as ´standard capacity´.

Also, magazines and clips are two different things. A magazine feeds ammunition into the firing chamber. A clip feeds ammunition into magazine. Some magazines are detachable, as is the one displayed in this story. But other magazines are internal and therefore cannot be detached from the weapon. Hence the need for a clip to load the magazine.

It´s important to know the difference.

I agree with the Must Read nominations. I was shocked and upset, however, by Mark´s elucidation of the sad and bizarre examples of Good Samaritans arrested & charged by nitpicking do-gooders and judges with no commonsense.

Perhaps after four years of watching The Won, and those in his regime, trample over and ignore the Constitution… why wouldn’t jurists of his inclinations assume they can do the same?!

Reminds me of the quote by Cornelius Tacitus (55-117 A.D.)--"Corruptissima re publica plurimae leges."
"The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws."

In the late 69´s the Air Force was developing the radically new F-111 for combat. A few were sent to Vietnam for penetration missions of North Veitnam to test its new ground hugging radar, which theoretically facilitated high speed runs at 200´ altitude. The plane and system costs were vastly over-run, and when several failed to return, scape-goats were sought. That is when I saw criminal charges brought against a General Dynamics line-worker for "Negligent Welding"

If they want or need to get someone, there are always charges they can use.

Leftists don´t even see a problem with there being different rules for different people.

Leftism is a RELIGION, not a system of critical thinking.

The abandonment of historical perspective allows for each new issue to be explored as if re-inventing the wheel.

So let´s try square wheels.....ya that sounds good !

Our Laws have reached the point where the legalists don´t even bother reading what their name has been assigned to. When we clean out the professional politicians we can clean out their laws - and start fresh. I can think of Ten Laws that were once considered a good foundation...

#16 - I have two SKS 7.62x39 rifles. One has a a non-detachable magazine holding 13 rounds. One has a detachable magazine that can hold 20 rounds. I use a clip to reload the 13 round rifle. It takes maybe 2 seconds longer than it takes me to detach the spent magazine and load a full one. But I can carry a good many more clips than I can carry magazines. Think David Gregory would understand any of the above?

Hillary Clinton today praised a 19-year-old woman who broke down crying at an event today as she revealed that she is an undocumented immigrant. The former first lady, secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential candidate encountered the passionate young woman while taking questions at a “Girls: A No Ceilings Conversation” event at the Lower East Side Girl’s Club in Manhattan, “I have a very different glass ceiling than some of the girls are exhibiting here. For the first time publicly I want to say that I’m an undocumented immigrant,” said the woman, named Nova, who quickly began to tear

The ´War on Women´ Failed in 2012
Wall Street Journal, by Michael Medved    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/17/2014 7:48:13 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is suddenly upset about the alleged wage gap between men and women, but he´s not responding to a national economic crisis. Instead, he is attempting to revive the "war on women" theme that, according to Washington wisdom, helped carry Democrats to victory in 2012 and might do again in 2014. If this narrative were true, the White House could spend the year demonizing Republicans as women-hating creeps, driving women to the polls in November and helping the party hold the Senate. But the conventional analysis isn´t accurate. National exit polls from 2012 show scant success for the war-on-women

Judge Strikes Down Costly
Provision Of Dodd-Frank

Regulation: In a victory for common sense, a federal judge has voided a race-based mandate of the Dodd-Frank Act that would have cost manufacturers and retailers billions in compliance expenses. Marking the first time a court has ruled that a provision of Dodd-Frank violates the Constitution, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that the financial "reform" law´s bizarre rule requiring companies to disclose whether their products contain "conflict minerals" from Africa violates the First Amendment. As we´ve argued, the rule had zero to do with financial reform and was sneaked into the law by Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters

Anyone wondering why the U.S. economy can´t seem to grow at its usual pace should examine one product category where production is booming: federal regulation. Washington set a new record in 2013 by issuing final rules consuming 26,417 pages in the Federal Register. While plenty of government employees deserve credit for this milestone, leadership matters. And by this measure President Obama has never been surpassed in the Oval Office. The latest rule-making tally comes from the Competitive Enterprise Institute´s Wayne Crews, who on April 29 will publish his annual review of federal regulation in

Fiscal Policy: Remember President Obama´s vow that, if re-elected, he´d pursue "balanced" deficit reduction? Either he forgot, or he hopes voters have, because a new report shows his latest budget is entirely unbalanced. When Obama released his budget this March, he said it included "smart spending cuts" and closed "tax loopholes" that benefit only "the wealthiest Americans." Obama added that his budget would put "our debt on a downward path as a share of our total economy, which independent experts have set as a critical target for fiscal responsibility." As with just about everything Obama says, none of these claims turns out be

Corruption: New emails show that both the IRS and Justice Department were involved in a probe of Tea Party and other conservative groups. This is no mere scandal — it´s a major breach of the law. The newly released emails were gathered for a Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch, a nonpartisan public interest law group. They show that former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner discussed with the Justice Department going after conservative groups that she believed lied about their political activities. What´s shocking is that this discussion came just days before Lerner acknowledged that the IRS had

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
