Sign the Petition: Make the
White House a Gun-Free Zone!

Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:markinalpine, 1/12/2013 10:11:45 PM

Via InstaPundit, we learn of the latest citizen-generated petition on the official White House site: Eliminate armed guards for the President, Vice-President, and their families, and establish Gun Free Zones around them Gun Free Zones are supposed to protect our children, and some politicians wish to strip us of our right to keep and bear arms. Those same politicians and their families are currently under the protection of armed Secret Service agents. If Gun Free Zones are sufficient protection for our children, then Gun Free Zones should be good enough for politicians. Heh. But really

Comments:
Ban politicians who are anti-gun or anti-2nd Amendment from having concealed carry permits too.

I don´t think anyone would consider a member of Congress or of the Administration to be more precious than a child.

#2 don´t worry. We´re all on the ´list´. We voted against 0bama. We post on this site. We e-mail Congress. We´re NRA members. We own guns, legally. We pay taxes. We live in a Red State.

This is our version of MLK´s ´principle of non-violence´.

The difference is that when this doesn´t work, we improvise, adapt and overcome....at times and places of our choosing.

Then they get worried because they are on our ´list´.

I didn´t waste a second to create an account and sign it. I can´t wait for their feeble attempt to explain how guns make them more safe at the same time they would make the rest of us less safe.

the left is devoid of ethics and logic.

Hopefully, concerned progressives have directed this to AttackWatch so that no one takes Dear Leader´s massive firewall of guns away from him. Guns protect him from bitter clingers, who are violent, racist, and cling to their guns. Obama is a gun-free zone in our hearts, and that´s what matters.

Barry believes in gun free zones, just not for himself. He just granted life-time SS protection for himself & Bush. Barry had to include Bush because Bush was the 1st president affected by the limited life ban and Barry couldn´t very well just give protection to himself. He´s special you know.

Signed it and will be alert for other petitions representing conservative ideas. Even though they scoffed, the press couldn´t help reporting on the secession petitions. Perhaps this one will attract enough attention to generate some news.

As for fear of "being on a list", remember John Hancock, the first president of the Continental Congress and first signer of the Declaration of Independence. He and the other representatives risked their considerable fortunes and perhaps very lives when signing. Legend says Hancock signed boldly, "So fat George can read it without his spectacles". With these men in your history, how can you possibly hesitate to petition your government out of fear of being added to some government database and then think of yourself as a free member of the republic rather than a government serf?

It´s a whitehouse dot gov website petition. No way do I sign this.

I DO think these gun grabbing politicians SHOULD have their secret service protection stopped. In a perfect world...

THIS would be what´s called "social justice".

Sochi - There is no shortage of official memorabilia for the Sochi Olympics. Everything from ballpoint pens to T-shirts and table wear comes with codes that can be checked to make sure they are the "genuine article." One thing you couldn´t buy, however, is a beer bearing the Russian president´s name and poking fun at Russia´s anti-gay propaganda law. Until now, that is. "Hello my name is Vladimir" is the latest offering from Aberdeen-based novelty beer company BrewDog (snip) "I am a beer for uber hetero men who ride horses while topless and carrying knives.

MINNEAPOLIS — Even as President Obama and progressive activists are trying to sell the nation on hiking the national minimum wage to help restaurant workers and other low-wage employees, the Internal Revenue Service is seemingly determined to make life harder for those same workers. A change in tax policy implemented Jan. 1 will prevent restaurant workers from collecting automatic gratuities — the added 18 percent fee many restaurants charge to groups of eight or more — as part of their tips. Instead, that added fee will be included in their payroll, meaning workers have to wait up to two weeks

   

 



 
Vatican´s Consultant Firm Warned

The private U.S. management consultancy firm hired by the Vatican to advise it on its media operations is the same firm that warned the White House of serious problems with the Obamacare rollout. (snip) The White House requested that McKinsey assess possible Obamacare rollout scenarios. The company ended up finding a range of problems with the healthcare exchanges and warned the Obama administration as far back as March that the federal website for enrollment into Obamacare, Healthcare.gov, could very well fail. Reuters had reported in November that McKinsey, in its 14-part slide presentation, told the White House that the tight window

An Obamacare Milestone
National Review, by Ed Haislmaier    Original Article
Posted By: markinalpine- 12/18/2013 9:08:30 PM     Post Reply
This week Obamacare passed an unflattering milestone. As of today, the Obama administration has spent longer botching the implementation of Obamacare than the Roosevelt and Truman administrations spent fighting and winning the Second World War. America’s involvement in World War II began on December 7, 1941, with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It ended 1,365 days later on September 2, 1945, with the surrender ceremony aboard the U.S.S. Missouri anchored in Tokyo Bay. President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law on March 23, 2010. Today, December 18, 2013, marks the 1,366th day of post-enactment Obamacare implementation.

Are too many kids taking
antipsychotic drugs?
Consumer Reports, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: markinalpine- 12/15/2013 12:49:29 PM     Post Reply
The number of children taking powerful antipsychotic drugs has nearly tripled over the last 10 to 15 years, according to recent research. The increase comes not because of an epidemic of schizophrenia or other forms of serious mental illness in children, but because doctors are increasingly prescribing the drugs to treat behavior problems, a use not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). And a disproportionate number of those prescriptions are written for poor and minority children, some as young as age 2. Doctors are prescribing antipsychotics even though there’s minimal evidence that the drugs help kids for approved

DUBAI - Iran is moving ahead with testing more efficient uranium enrichment technology, a spokesman for its atomic energy agency said on Saturday, in news that may concern world powers who last month agreed a deal to curb Tehran´s atomic activities. Spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi was quoted by state news agency IRNA as saying that initial testing on a new generation of more sophisticated centrifuges had been completed, underlining Iran´s determination to keep refining uranium (snip) Some experts believe the IR-2m can enrich uranium 2-3 times faster than the IR-1.

Short-cut to produce hydrogen

OSLO - Scientists have produced hydrogen by accelerating a natural process found in rocks deep below the Earth´s surface, a short-cut that may herald the wider use of what is a clean fuel, a study showed on Sunday. Used in rockets and in battery-like fuel cells, hydrogen is being widely researched as a non-polluting fuel, but its use is so far hampered by high costs. A few hydrogen vehicles are already on the roads, such as the Honda FXC Clarity and Mercedes-Benz F-Cell, and more are planned. Researchers in France said aluminum oxide speeded up a process by which hydrogen

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
