NRA President Schools Candy
Crowley: Obama and Feinstein
Are Driving Gun Sales Not Us!

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/13/2013 10:56:28 AM

CNN´s Candy Crowley on Sunday floated the typical media nonsense about how the National Rifle Association is ginning up fear to sell more guns in the wake of the massacre in Newtown, Connecticut. Fortunately for State of the Union viewers, NRA President David Keene was on the set to correctly point out, "The two people who are selling so-called assault rifles are Senator Feinstein and President Obama not us" (video follows with transcript and commentary): CANDY CROWLEY, HOST: One of the big questions here has been

Whatever else he is, he´s the best gun salesman in human history.

#1: LaPierre is the head of an organization that supports the 2nd Amendment rights of American citizens. It is not a government organization, nor is it a mental health organization. He was right. An armed responder would have at least had a chance to stop the carnage early on and all those kids might still be alive.

Feinstein´s statement about her bill was that it would affect any guns that would be purchased after the date the bill passed. Tell me that isn´t an advertisement to "buy your guns now because it´ll be too late soon!" And tell me, when her biggest benefactors -- the California teacher´s union -- has invested in gun manufacturers, that that wasn´t an attempt to help them get a windfall before they bail on the stock -- which they just announced they plan to do (after the buying frenzy, of course).

It was up to Lanza´s mother to keep guns away from him. How many people even knew he existed?

Obama and Feinstein are driving the gun sales. We do not trust government to protect us or even to understand the problem. Put that together with distrust of Obama´s intention to transform our country into what he thinks it should be and the people begin to think about other countries, such as Russia, who disarmed their population rendering it helpless sheep for the shearing and deciding they wouldn´t let it happen here. The guns are just in case.

I used to be anti gun but I came to my senses.

People can see that this president´s policies and attitude are promoting chaos. In the face of chaos, people feel like they have to be prepared to defend themselves, their homes, and their families.

Why do the politicians in Chicago tolerate large hunks of that city in utter chaos? Because it keeps people in fear and keeps them elected.

#1: How many ARMED guards protect the children where Obama´s girls attend - and have been guarding it, BEFORE Obama -

How many ARMED guards protect Obama and everyone else in that administration?

So, apparently having gun to protect them is ok for the ´ruling class´ but not ok for we peons?

Home invasions, where the perpetrator violently kicks down the door and attacks the homeowners in residence are on the rise in my area. I do not plan to go quietly. Perhaps you do. I´m glad you aren´t making the decisions for MY family.

You want to prevent the Adam Lanza´s of the world from getting guns? Easy, commit them to mental institutions. My rights shouldn´t suffer because this person´s mother was stupid. She had firearms in the home, accessible to a mentally ill person. It never ceases to amaze me the stupid things people do that result in someone being killed.

--as has been pointed out on the gun forums, the suggestion of armed guards in schools was proposed as legislation during the Clinton years and of course , wasn´t laughed at and otherwise denigrated because it came from an ´acceptable source´--

--and , had Wayne LaPierre got on his knees , begged forgiveness and agreed to go along with the Feinstein gun grab, the response from the left would have been ´that it didn´t go far enough´ and handguns and sniper rifles would have been the next ´target´---

Important public institutions, such as schools and political leaders should have the same level of protection. If Democrat politicians want schools disarmed, they should disarm and fire their own security.

We will never be able to keep weapons out of the hands of people who want to do harm. To think otherwise is to live in a fantasy. Meth amphetamines, heroin, cocaine, etc. are all "banned". Anyone can get them, anywhere in the world. We as a nation once banned alcoholic beverages. It did not work. In fact, every society in history has "banned" murder. It has not worked. Bans on anything will never work. If you are honest with yourself you already know that. All any ban has ever done is increase demand, spawn black markets and taken away the liberty of law-abiding people. Fact.

#7: One of the possible motives Adam Lanza went berserk was that his mother was allegedly in the process of getting him committed. Retrospectively, we would say she should have done it earlier. I think it is not difficult to criticize the mother for doing a stupid thing like encouraging him to use guns when she knew of his impulsivity, but sometimes, being a parent blinds one to the evil nature of one´s offspring.

The problem continues to fester because society still doesn´t know how to responsibly deal with people with mental illness. Competing interests in protecting society from the mentally ill and ensuring the mentally ill are not mistreated. The solution will not soon be reached because the poisonous atmosphere, for which I mostly blame the progressives, between left and the right kills any good faith discussion.

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center.

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

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

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

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

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. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.
