Feinstein: The NRA is ´venal´
Washington Times, by David Eldridge

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/27/2013 10:47:23 PM

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat who has emerged as the leading proponent in Congress of tough new gun regulations in the wake of last month´s Newtown, Conn., school shootings, defended her proposed assault weapons ban on Sunday. Mrs. Feinstein, in an interview on CNN´s "State of the Union," conceded that the assault-weapons-ban legislation she introduced in the Senate on Thursday faces long odds. "This has always been an uphill fight ... this is the hardest of the hard," she said. She said her new gun-control proposals have broad-based support among mayors,

She has violated her oath of office and should be recalled and impeached. I won´t hold my breath waiting for the good people of Kalifornia to do ANYTHING about this anti-American Twit....

When do you know legislation is an appalling power grab? When the legislators exempt themselves from it.

Enough!

If she really wants to try hardest of the hard, she should sponsor a bill to defund Planned Parenthood. I guarantee she will find out quickly what is actually hard.

The ironic thing is the good senator has done more for gun sales than anyone since Samuel Colt. Or maybe ØDumbø. My crystal ball is cloudy but I think the whole thing will blow over. In order to repeal the Second Amendment it would have to be ratified by 2/3 of the states. And that´s not going to happen.

It was a recall attempt prompted by her gun control policies in San Francisco that make Feinstein politically ironclad.

I really try to like her, possibly because, next to Barbara Boxer, she´s a paragon of common sense. She has also, to some small degree, opposed the anti-military fanatics who dominate SF politics, and supported home-porting the Missouri in SF.

She´s not running for re-election. Like most of the dog-and-pony show that is Washington, she will run with this football as far as she can, and if she doesn´t cross the goal line, no one can say she didn´t try.

#11 it´s 3/4 of the States, plus 2/3 of both houses of Congress must approve it before it even goes to the states. Neither will happen.

The NRA is open to bribery?

I don´t think anyone has to bribe the NRA to support our entire Bill of Rights, including the Second Amendment.

To get a Democrat to support these rights, however, probably WOULD require a substantial bribe.

The sad part is Kalifornia has elected a woman who is attempting to outlaw something due to it´s looks.

If Di Fi had any conscience, she would be trying to outlaw, swimming pools, automobiles and bathtubs rather than guns.

If Gun Free Zones worked, Chicago would be safe. Why don´t they pass another law that says Murder is unlawful. That should solve the problem.

The NRA is nothing but a bunch of like minded people enjoying the same hobby.Leave them alone and they´ll leave you alone.

According to Feinstein and the rest of the gun grabbers,they are outlaws,threatening the future of the country and accessory to every murder.

It´s OK to stereotype and smear these people with a broad brush but you´d better not stereotype minorities and gays,even though they are tremendously like minded,politically.

These people are always looking for something or someone to do an Alinsky on.Now Obama says Limbaugh and Fox are getting in the way of a full blown left wing country. Obama got elected twice with both of them doing their thing.

In fact,talk radio and a cable channel could be getting passed by with high tech communications and text messages to cell phones,from the WH,which is illegal. The groups might be considered neutral on paper but they´re coordinate with the WH which is illegal.
Somehow I got on the WH email list about 3 years ago and got a message from MO.I replied to remove me from the list but my brain was looking for an ice bucket after reading just one sentence of it.

I dunno, I find that I am increasingly disappointed with much of the commentary here on Lucianne. Calling people funny names, and using asterisks to get around the smutty language filter, does little to uplift the level of conversation.

"Venal" is a word usually associated with politicians like Feinstein.

"Showing or motivated by susceptibility to bribery."

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

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

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

Democrats settle on fairness

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

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
