There is no doubt that the Sandy Hook school massacre was an unspeakable tragedy but I doubt seriously that had the murdered children been killed at an inner-city school, Presidential Obama would be holding a conference using children as a dramatic prop for his dictatorial gun control agenda. Nor would there be hysterical politicians calling for tighter gun control laws nor column after column from leftwing writers exploiting the tragedy. The sad truth is that none of these demagogues care one bit about murdered black or Hispanic children unless the perpetrators of these crimes are white
They pretend we´re not serious about this, that we can be bullied into surrendering our God-given liberties because they don´t take God seriously. But God is there. He answers our heart-felt entreaties. He has been kind to this country of faithful believers, and forgives our lapses. Stand strong, Americans. The serpent worms through our midst. He reveals his power, the full extent of it. It is beatable.
To paraphrase a wise Ldotter: Remember those who cry loudest about the 26 who died at Sandy Hook are the same people who allow millions upon millions of children to be aborted in this nation. They don´t give a tinker´s damn about children unless it furthers their treasonous ambitions.
She makes a good point about race in America. However, she gets off-track with this quote, "Most members of the NRA practice stringent safety controls." Certainly, that is correct...but it is also true that most 20 year olds don´t shoot up elementary schools. The challenge is to preserve the rights of the "most" while dealing with the outliers - the few NRA members who may not practice stringent safety controls, the few 20 year olds who might shoot up elementary schools. If the standard were "most", we wouldn´t need "most" of the laws on the books, for "most" people don´t murder, rob, rape, or commit any other significant crimes.
If the Sandyhook tragedy happened at an inner city school it would have been covered and handled the same way. It´s preposterous to think otherwise. The reactions to the tragedy, however, don´t seem to follow common sense. Groupon has discontinued discounts on gun related businesses. Those discounts were all training related. Stupid or does Groupon now hate guns...period?!
If guns didn´t exist these urban savages would kill one another with some other handy weapon. This is a culture problem that needs to be addressed. Quit blaming guns, and the wrong type guns at that. Democrat push for gun control is more about disarming citizens to make their future subjugation by Democrat leftist politicians less hazardous.
FTA: I´m beginning to think a good portion of the nation has been lobotomized and has lost the ability to reason with any acuity.
Yup. And you can´t fix stupid.
FTA: I´m also waiting for the end to race-baiting pundits who shout "racist code words" whenever anybody tries to call a spade a spade. Dream on, Alicia.
Exactly. Instead of freedom from racial differences, as MLK dreamed, race has been turned into a ongoing business.No solutions to problems are really provided because that would eliminate the need for the business. Would you expect a drug dealer to drive his clients to rehabilitation clinics?
It leaves you wondering, how stupid are these people that they keep buying this garbage? Apparently, pretty darn stupid.
Remember when Idi Amin was a big joke? There is a pattern. Let´s also not forget that the roots of gun control in this country were in the reconstruction era to keep arms out of the hands of former slaves.
So many great cultures make up our unique America: construction, manufacturing, high technology, entertainment, medical, farming, ranching, the restaurant and food industry, and add to it one of the most stable of all cultures, citizen gun ownership mixing in harmoniously with all those other great cultures. Is it not a most responsible culture amongst all the other ones? We have a culture of citizen arms, and without it, there would be total chaos. Disarmed cities vividly prove that point. Our gun culture is a vital part of the true wealth of ths nation. The commie opportunists trying to take advantage of the horrible killings to smash this culture apart, are the very same people who want to kill unborn babies, who want the government to pay for the killing of unborn babies. Gun confiscators (to protect the kids) are one and the same propgandists who want to kill, abort, unborn babies. How frightening can this crime level hypocracy get?
Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood to remove Blacks and Hispanics from society in a way that was discrete and/or acceptable. It is nothing less than "Black and Hispanic Genocide". Yet the Democratic Party funds PPH and Blacks and Hispanics vote for Democrats 80% of the time. Don´t you think we need to start educating them and let them know the truth?
Several thoughts. Responsible gun ownership and responsibility saves lives. Was trained on gun safety from a young age, my training prevented me from being shot accidentally by a classmate.
Comments regarding 95% of people in Chicago being killed by handguns and minorities are dead on and can be extrapolated to most major cities. The results of a pathetically stupid and flawed culture embraced by minorities.
How cool would a webpage be that cataloged the number of minority youths killed by other minority youths in major US cities? Maybe call it the race to 26? Insensitive of me I know but,,,,,,,
Let me see if I have this straight. The muslim brothhood is our # 1 enemy in the world. Their broBama wants me to surrender my guns. In the meantime, he is literally forcing the musbros to accept twenty jets and 200 tanks with which to destroy Israel and eventually attack us. Now I understand.
NYC announced today that it is on track for 100 subway deaths this year. Given the gun control advocates´ logic, shouldn´t we be demanding "subway control" (along with knives, fists and clubs)? After all, that is almost four times the death toll from Sandy Hook.
The sad fact is that slave owners denied slaves their second amendment rights because they KNEW that an armed man could easily become a freed man, so there is another racist aspect of the demonrats´ obsession with gun control. Wake up, Black America, and quit voting for these people who continually thumb their noses at you.
Let´s see... The Founders wanted citizens to be armed to prevent tyranny by a federal government gone wild. Now a federal government gone wild wants to ban the weapons the citizens would use (military style weapons). Hmmm... I know I´m not that smart but even I can figure this out. There´s a reason they don´t care about handguns in Chicago.
There is no question that Dems are more proficient than GOP in manipulating numbers. They wail about all the "children" killed by guns, thoughtfully leaving out the fact that they count anyone up to age 19 as a child. And that the vast majority of victims are bigger than the police who work the case, are black or Hispanic , own the guns illegally, and were killed by other black or Hispanic thugs. We need to hire and listen to some really good PR people of our own!
I have been called the most vile names on Twitter and other websites for saying what I know to be true ... That the Democrats are the Real Racists and cover it up by pointing the finger at the Republicans. I don´t care what they call me. I know what I know. The Democrats are the most Racist of Racist and they cover it up, (aided by a corrupt media)by claiming that Republicans are the racists. But look at their records of minority Governors and other representatives. The proof is in the pudding. If only the media was!
There are two Popes. One is Francis as he actually is: spiritual shepherd of the Catholic faithful, the man chosen to defend and articulate the beliefs of the Church. The other is Francis as the liberal establishment would have him be: a crusading humanist on the verge of making the Catholic Church socially acceptable at Manhattan dinner parties. Guess which Pope Francis Time Magazine just made Man of the Year? The Catholic writer Billy Newton has done a great run down of why Time´s Pope is not the real Pope, with two killer observations. First, the magazine calls him The
Turns out nobody likes this budget deal except the press, which loves bipartisan agreements, no matter how puny. The tone of the coverage is as follows: Finally, they’re acting like grownups. Finally, a return to “regular order” (a legislative term no one cares about but which means doing a budget for a year rather than these endless stopgap measures). Finally, both sides have agreed to compromise. Finally, no danger of a government shutdown. All true. But let’s not get carried away: the agreement accomplishes very little. Maybe journalists are just relieved they don’t have to work over the Christmas holidays on another up-to-the-brink
A South African government minister has said that "a mistake happened" in the hiring of a sign language interpreter accused of gesticulating nonsense during the Nelson Mandela memorial service. Hendrietta Bogopane-Zulu said that officials have tried to track down the company that provided Thamsanqa Jantjie but that the owners "have vanished into thin air". Earlier on Thursday Jantjie claimed he is qualified but was hallucinating and hearing voices and said he is receiving treatment for schizophrenia. Millions of TV viewers saw Jantjie interpreting speeches by Barack Obama and other global leaders at the FNB stadium in Johannesburg. His gestures baffled and angered deaf
If it seemed like cable news spent more time covering President Barack Obama’s handshake with Cuban President Raul Castro and “selfie” with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt than they did on the substance of Nelson Mandela’s memorial service, that’s because they did. An analysis put together by Media Matters reveals that on Tuesday night, December 10th the big three cable news networks spent an average 62% of their Mandela-themed segments focusing on either the handshake or the selfie, with 38% of that time spent discussing Mandela’s legacy and the rest of the memorial service. CNN appeared to be the worst offender, dedicating
Nearly 365,000 people selected a private health plan on state Obamacare markets through the end of November — a sign that people are flocking to the patched-up federal website, HealthCare.gov — although the new pace falls short of long-range projections for an inaugural sign-up period that ends in March. The Department of Health and Human Services on Tuesday announced a total of 364,682 enrollees in private health plans from all states in Oct. 1-Nov. 30. The release came shortly before agency Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was slated to testify before Congress about the state of the health care law’s implementation. The new report
Senate Democrats facing tough reelections say President Obama has not done enough to fix the botched rollout of his healthcare law and are vowing to repair it themselves. The Senate Democratic leadership is not on board with lawmaker plans to begin rewriting ObamaCare and have urged for more time to assess the changes made by Obama and his team, lawmakers say.
Rep. Lou Barletta (R., Pa.) introduced a bill Tuesday that will exempt volunteer fire departments from having to pay for their members’ insurance benefits. The current IRS policy defines volunteer firefighters as employees for federal tax purposes. If voted into law, the Protecting Volunteer Firefighters and Emergency Responders Act will redefine volunteers as non-employees, which will relieve fire departments from the burden of paying for volunteers’ health insurance. “Without further guidance from the IRS—which could have issued a clarification immediately if it so chose—we have no choice but to pursue a legislative fix to yet another problem with Obamacare,” Barletta
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
