Members invite victims of
gun violence to Obama address

USA Today, by Jackie Kucinich

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 2/10/2013 5:07:22 PM

More than 20 survivors of gun violence and their family members will be in the House chamber on Tuesday as President Obama gives the first State of the Union Address of his second term. The effort, organized in part by Mayors Against Illegal Guns and congressional advocates of stricter gun laws, may be the first coordinated attempt to pack the gallery with a group of people pushing for one issue, according to House historians and longtime congressional observers. Members who say they are providing tickets to gun violence victims include Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, Democratic Reps. Jim Langevin

Comments:
They are turning the SOTU into nothing more than an Obama pep rally. Will there be banners reading ´´Never Waste a Crisis´´?

Maybe the victims of illegal immigrant crime should have some representation there as well, or maybe those who have lost their health insurance and/or their jobs courtesy of ZeroCare.

There is only "people violence", not "gun violence". A gun is an inert device which can be used by a human being for good (e.g. defending one´s life against an evil human being) or for evil (an evil human being attacking another human being who did not initiate violence).

Gee...they could stage a rally for ´victims of alcohol related ___________´ - if only DC were a tad larger. Say, Georgia-sized. Or just lock ´em in and pour the ´contents´ of the last six months worth of abortion clinic product thru the roof vents...

And of course whatever the occasion, the primary accomplishment will be more Obama-worship.

These guys are quickly reaching Syrup of Ipecac quality.

Kinda weird that the Thuggas-in-Charge are not inviting the survivors and victims of 20 plus shootings in the Chicago-hood every single weekend. After all, aren´t those in Chicago the BO and Holder´s "people" in their backyard? All black victims.


Yet the politicians parade around feigned condolences to a community of lily-white people at their funeral services and then invite them to the White House?

Oh yea. That is right...black politicians do not have to pander or cater to the black people because their "vote is all locked up." Just throw them a bone and have MO on one of her shopping trips and swing by some little black girl´s funeral to get a photo op wearing her latest upholstery outfit.

Do you believe people buy this cr@ap?

Maybe if the folks who purport themselves as "Mayors Against Illegal Guns," which I assume are Mayors of major cities, would direct their police departments to:

1. Enforce current laws and
2. Get the thugs, gangs, and other miscreants with illegal guns off the street and
3. Pressure the local prosecutors and judges to hand out maximum penalties (including time at the iron bar hotel) to the folks above.

But I guess "Mayors Against Illegal Guns" figure it´s sure a lot easier to make it tougher for law-abiding citizens and hey, who´s got time to enforce laws. Time´s gotta be spent being sure union goons are paid off, illegals are registered to vote (more than once is even better), and, oh yeah, we gotta be over at Beyonce and Jay-Z´s place for a fundraiser later tonight.

Why don´t Republicans publicly rally round the woman who shot the thug coming after her and her children in their home? How about the hero veteran sitting in his rocket and saved his life and property from a burglar with a gun? The 76 year old lady cashier who pulled out a gun from under the counter and the ARMED thief ran in terror? These true stories, real people saving lives, and the Republicans can´t honor them OR use the incidents to make our case? FRUSTRATING!!!! BTW, look how effective it would be to use these stories AND the people in a dynamic post-address response!

Russia ´outraged´ as east Ukraine
shootout shatters Easter truce

Slavyansk Ukraine- A deadly gunfight in a town in restive east Ukraine on Sunday shattered a fragile Easter truce, with Russia declaring it was "outraged" at the return to violence in the crisis-hit former Soviet republic. Three pro-Russian militants and one attacker were killed in a firefight at a roadblock close to the separatist-held town of Slavyansk, said a local pro-Kremlin rebel leader, Vyatcheslav Ponomarev. Vladimir, a masked 20-year-old pro-Russian rebel who was at the barricade, told AFP: "Four cars pulled up to our roadblock around 1:00am (2200 GMT Saturday).

Washington - The latest delay to a final decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline will reinforce a White House strategy to energize President Barack Obama´s liberal-leaning base before fall elections in which Democrats risk losing control of the U.S. Senate. Environmentalists, worried about the project´s effect on climate change, have put enormous pressure on the president to reject the pipeline from Canada´s oil sands, staging demonstrations outside the White House and protests in states where he travels. A decision to approve it now could have prompted that vocal group, which was instrumental in electing Obama in 2008 and 2012,

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a
source of deep rifts in Christian religion
Washington Post, by Kimberley Winston    Original Article

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

´8THEIST´ license plate in NJ: Why
states can´t rein in the vanity plate monster
Christian Science Monitor, by Patrik Jonsson    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/19/2014 4:09:21 PM     Post Reply
If you can get a New Jersey vanity license plate that reads “BAPTIST,” why not one that reads “8THEIST”? That’s the question Shannon Morgan, a self-describe atheist, is asking in a lawsuit after the New Jersey department of motor vehicles denied her vanity plate application. Her main complaint is a bureaucracy deeming that “8THEIST” has connotations that offend “good taste and decency,” the bar which the state uses to judge the suitability of personalized plate messages. She also wants the state to adopt a more “viewpoint-neutral” vanity plate approval policy, since when she typed “BAPTIST” into the DMV application it

Grandma Hillary Is a

When Chelsea Clinton announced Thursday that she’s pregnant, it took the media about two nanoseconds to home in on what that really means: Hillary, should she run for president in 2016, will campaign as a grandmother. (Snip) And for another, Hillary’s newfound role as grandmother isn’t necessarily a political boon. As I wrote in the Washington Monthly’s current issue, it could very easily cut both ways. After all, Hillary, who will be 68 in 2016, already runs the risk of appearing old, a vulnerability not lost on her detractors. From the Monthly: (At sixty-six, Hillary is “not particularly old for

Chef says preparing healthy Passover

Chef Vered Guttman braved the challenge of preparing a White House Passover seder in line with Michelle Obama´s healthy eating guidelines and lived to tell her story. "The traditional seder fare is hardly fresh or healthy," Guttman wrote in a post-dinner review about incorporating vegetable sides to "offset some of the Jewish carbs" like gefilte fish and matzo ball soup. And her hard work to keep it healthy paid off, as both the President and First Lady praised her quinoa-kale salad and even inquired after the recipe. Guttman, a D.C. based caterer, worked with White House executive chef Cris Comerford

A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton´s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years. Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance. The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton´s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable. The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46. Other polls have shown Clinton´s numbers --

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is
