Bill Clinton to Democrats:
Don’t trivialize gun culture

Politico, by Byron Tau

Original Article

Posted By:nota bene, 1/20/2013 8:45:25 AM

Former President Bill Clinton warned a group of top Democratic donors at a private Saturday meeting not to underestimate the passions that gun control stirs among many Americans. “Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them,” Clinton said. “A lot of these people live in a world very different from the world lived in by the people proposing these things,” Clinton said. “I know because I come from this world."

Why MUST we hear from this pile of phlegm once or more times every single week. "We´ll because he´s in the news." If the newspapers would stop writing about him, then he´d no longer be in the news now, would he?

Right, don´t trivialize:

“A lot of these people … all they’ve got is their hunting and their fishing,” he told the Democratic financiers. “Or they’re living in a place where they don’t have much police presence. Or they’ve been listening to this stuff for so long that they believe it all.”

I agree, #1, but when you are a liberal "journalist", every story has to include WWBCD.

The comments following the article are interesting. Liberals who see themselves as very intelligent, better than everyone else and oh so sophisticated are convinced that the Government should be running every aspect of our lives. The two views contradict each other. I don´t know of even one politician at any level of government who I think is smart enough to run my life.

This treacherous bum broke the law on posse comitatus and sent a military tank armed with deadly gas into the compound at Waco.

He incinerated men, women, and children, to save them.

He used our military against our own citizens.

If you doubt that the current president would do the same, you are sadly mistaken.

The "opponents" better stop thinking that future elections will be anywhere close to legal. They won´t be unless the "opponents" figure out someway to stop the dismantling of our election system as it is today. We need to go back to voting on voting day & a thumb dipped in India ink.

Hatred of the gun culture is not about guns. The centuries old set of middle American values is the final obstacle on the road to collectivization. Zippy has let this slip out with his infamous "clinging to guns and god" comment. Bubba knows this only too well...

Tell you what, Bubba. Let us gun whackos secede and all the rest of y´all can be gun-free States if you want to be.

Then we shall see who instantly snaps up all the guns they can to protect themselves from the criminals who can still get guns past your confiscation and gun-registration laws.

When the criminal with a gun enters your precious gun-free house with intent to rob, rape and murder, will you still be so enamoured of your gun-free ´tude?

"an emotional, divisive and difficult issue that the cool and pragmatic Obama would usually avoid."

get the author some knee pads and a bib.
i cannot believe the drivel that is published as news.

Obama thrives on emotional, divisive and difficult issues.

Please don´t forget that Bill Clinton was named father of the year for 2012 (a honor shared with the 2007 winner, John Edwards). Can the Nobel be far behind?

KIEV/BALACLAVA, Ukraine - Ukraine mobilized on Sunday for war and called up its reserves, after Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened to invade in the biggest confrontation between Moscow and the West since the Cold War. Ukraine´s security council ordered the general staff to immediately put all armed forces on highest alert, the council´s secretary Andriy Parubiy announced. The Defense Ministry was ordered to conduct the call-up, potentially of all men up to 40 in a country that still has universal male conscription.

A provision of President Barack Obama’s health-care reforms requiring group insurance plans to cover contraceptives violates the constitutional right to religious freedom, a federal appeals court in Washington said. A three-judge panel ruled yesterday in a lawsuit filed by two brothers who are Catholic and, on religious grounds, excluded coverage for contraceptives from the health plans of their produce-distribution companies in violation of the Patient Proctection and Affordable Care Act. “We must determine whether the contraceptive mandate imposed by the act trammels the right of free exercise -— a right that lies at the core of our constitutional liberties -—

Illinois´ old law banning the concealed carry of firearms took another hit Thursday. A federal court already found it unconstitutional last year. Now the Illinois Supreme Court has taken the same position. Alberto Aguilar was 17 when Chicago police arrested him for having a loaded handgun with the serial number scratched off. He was convicted of unlawfully possessing a firearm and sentenced to 24 months probation. While his appeal was pending before the Illinois Supreme Court, a federal court in Chicago struck down Illinois´ ban on public gun possession, finding it violated the U.S. Constitution. The Illinois legislature also legalized concealed

According to Senator Chuck Grassley, the IRS’s tax-exempt division director Lois Lerner refused to resign after she was asked to do so by the agency’s acting commissioner: “My understanding is the new acting IRS commissioner asked for Ms. Lerner’s resignation, and she refused to resign. She was then put on administrative leave instead. From all accounts so far, the IRS acting commissioner was on solid ground to ask for her resignation... The IRS owes it to taxpayers to resolve her situation quickly.

Sharyl Attkisson in talks to leave CBS

Sharyl Attkisson, the Emmy award-winning investigative reporter, is in talks to leave CBS News ahead of contract, POLITICO has learned. Sources familiar with the situation cite disputes between Attkisson and network executives, including CBS Evening News executive producer Patricia Shevlin, as the cause for the talks, though the specific issues could not be confirmed. "I am under contract at CBS and I have not quit," Attkisson told POLITICO in a written statement. She declined to comment further. CBS News declined to comment; a request to speak with Shevlin was redirected to the press office.

It’s a cliché, of course, but it really is true: in Washington, every scandal has a crime and a coverup. The ongoing debate about the attack on the United States facility in Benghazi where four Americans were killed, and the Obama Administration’s response to it, is no exception. For a long time, it seemed like the idea of a coverup was just a Republican obsession. But now there is something to it. On Friday, ABC News’s Jonathan Karl revealed the details of the editing process

There has been a lot written about a Politico piece that ran Wednesday in the wake of a Washington Post profile of CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson. The Post profile was mostly positive, painting the picture of an intrepid reporter willing to take on the story of a terrorist attack in Libya in the face of enormous pushback from the Obama White House. The Politico piece, however, was nothing more than unsubstantiated gossip meant only to tarnish Attkisson.

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

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

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

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in.

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.

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

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
