On Tuesday, #LiberalTips2AvoidRape began trending on Twitter. Here´s the backstory: On Monday, Colorado´s House voted to pass HB 1226, which would prevent anyone—including people with permits—to carry concealed weapons on campuses of public universities. State Rep. Joe Salazar came under fire for statements he made during the debate over the bill, which indicated that he felt that fear of rape on campus should not be the motivating factor for the House to vote against the bill. “It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles," Salazar said.
FTA: Three Democrats broke rank and voted against it.
To use an worn out sports cliche, the game wasn´t as close as the score indicated. The three democrats who "broke rank" and voted no had permission from their democrat leadership. If their votes were needed for passage, they would have voted yes, which is how they wanted to vote, but didn´t because of a political price to be paid.
What we have here is a MAN working to keep women unarmed and vulnerable.
Along with relegating women to whistles, call boxes and safe zones, Joe Salazar should come right out and say what he´s obviously getting at: Women who go out in public without a male should be prepared to run for their lives. As Joe said himself, he´s worried armed women just might "pop off a couple rounds" and hurt innocent man, and we can´t have that.

I saw this guy speak. I can´t remember hearing a bigger moron speak. Is this jerk for real. That´s as stupid as Uncle Weatherby saying, "if you are getting raped, lay back and enjoy it". Both are morons. Tex got fired, what´s going to happen Salazar?
Excellent idea, #2! Even if you miss with old slabsides, the noise will scare the water out of the perp. By the way, this article is another good example of who is really waging war on women. Hint: It ain´t conservatives!
During the past 12 months, NewsBusters has chronicled the downward fall of the liberal cable television network known as MSNBC. Not only has the channel dropped by double digits in prime-time and daily ratings, but the network also lost two of its most prominent hosts in very public, very embarrassing ways. As a result, L. A. Ross of thewrap.com noted in an article that the people in the “Lean Forward” channel "might rather forget 2013," which he noted is when MSNBC will end the year in third place among the cable news networks in total day viewers, due to a loss
Stand-up comedy pioneer, film and television star, and best-selling author Steve Harvey scored a big interview with President Obama last week, sitting down for a “man-on-man” interview with the leader of the free world, and crashing a White House tour for good measure. That huge interview for Harvey, though, aired in most markets, today, at the same time President Obama was delivering his end-of-year press conference, a case of Grand Theft Thunder, if ever there was one. As promised, the interview steered largely clear of politics, save a brief portion on the progress with Healthcare.gov, and focused mainly on personal
The political world’s odd couple — conservative Mary Matalin and liberal James Carville — have talked plenty about politics but their latest book — “Love & War: Twenty Years, Three Presidents, Two Daughters and One Louisiana Home” — focuses on how they resolve their differences at home, from moving to New Orleans to sex to cats to Carville’s frustrating ADHD. “I knew Mary was nuts a long time ago,” Carville writes. “But I loved her in spite of it — and probably because of it.” Later he writes, “I’d rather stay happily married than pick a fight with my wife
West Monroe, Louisiana -As the future of their show lies in doubt, the Duck Dynasty clan are still making millions thanks to their megabucks Walmart merchandising deal, MailOnline can today reveal.The Robertson family has a merchandise empire that is estimated by Forbes to be worth about $400million - and their deal with Walmart makes up around half of this.

HATFIELD, Mass. — Massachusetts state police say they´ve stopped a car carrying 1,250 packets of heroin stamped "Obamacare" and "Kurt Cobain" and arrested the four people inside it. Police say a trooper was making a traffic stop in Northampton when another car passed and he noticed several violations.

The four arrested people have been charged with heroin trafficking. State police Lt. Daniel Richard says it´s not unusual for heroin to be
President Barack Obama told reporters Friday that he met as frequently as biweekly with employees responsible for the Obamacare website, Healthcare.gov, in the time leading up to its October 1st launch. "There´s no doubt that when it came to the health care rollout, I was meeting every other week or every three weeks with folks and emphasizing how important it was that consumers had a good experience, an easy experience in getting the information they need and knowing what the choices and options were for them to be able to get high-quality, affordable health care," Obama said during his final press
The Robertson family of A&E’s “Duck Dynasty” say they “cannot imagine the show going forward” without Phil Robertson who the network suspended following a firestorm around the patriarch calling homosexuality a sin. In an interview for the January issue of GQ Magazine, Robertson made several comments on immorality, describing as sinful several sexual practices including homosexuality, bestiality and adultery. Robertson´s comments provoked a storm of responses from the national media and gay rights organizations denouncing West Monroe’s Duck Commander for “anti-gay remarks.” On Wednesday, A&E suspended Phil Robertson indefinitely from appearing on “Duck Dynasty.” Robertson’s suspension from “Duck Dynasty” drew
Is this man simply expressing his beliefs or spewing bigotry?Either way, Phil Robertson, the patriarch in A&E´s "Duck Dynasty," won´t be duck calling on air anytime soon. The network suspended him after slamming gays in a magazine interview. In the January issue of GQ, Robertson said homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity. "It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man´s anus. That´s just me. I´m just thinking: There´s more there! She´s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was hospitalized early Friday morning as a “precaution” after feeling ill, a spokesman said, adding that doctors concluded "everything is normal" after testing. “Early this morning, Senator Reid was not feeling well and as a precaution decided to go to the hospital. Tests have been conducted and everything is normal. He is alert, resting and feeling better,” spokesman Adam Jentleson said in a statement. "Doctors have asked that he remain in the hospital for observation so he will not be working today." The Senate is set to finish its business for the year on Friday.
For a few hours, it looked like Americans would quietly accept the suspension of popular “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson for his unfiltered opinions about sin, sex, gays and blacks in a magazine interview. But then, as if on cue, hundreds of thousands of fans of the openly Christian, duck-hunting businessman took to social networks and started their backlash. As of Thursday night, more than 1.1 million people “liked” the “Stand With Phil Robertson” Facebook page, while about the same number had clicked their support for another Facebook page called “Boycott A&E Until Phil Robertson Is Put Back On Duck
The suspension of Phil Robertson from A&E’s Duck Dynasty is outrageous in a nation that values freedom, according to social critic and openly gay, dissident feminist Camille Paglia. “I speak with authority here, because I was openly gay before the ‘Stonewall rebellion,’ when it cost you something to be so. And I personally feel as a libertarian that people have the right to free thought and free speech,” Paglia, a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, said on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Thursday. “In a democratic country, people have the right to be homophobic as well as they have
The Obama administration Thursday night significantly relaxed the rules of the health-care law for millions of consumers whose individual insurance policies have been canceled, saying they could buy bare-bones health plans or entirely avoid the requirement that most Americans have health insurance. The surprise announcement, four days before the Dec. 23 deadline for people to choose coverage that begins on Jan. 1, triggered an immediate backlash from the health insurance industry and raised new fairness questions about a law intended to promote affordable and comprehensive coverage. “This type of last-minute change will cause tremendous instability in the marketplace and lead
Olympic gold medalist Brian Boitano has announced he is gay. Boitano´s personal news comes two days after the figure skater was named to the official United States 2014 Sochi Olympics delegation by President Obama. "While I am proud to play a public role in representing the American Olympic Delegation as a former Olympic athlete, I have always reserved my private life for my family and friends and will continue to do so," Boitano, 50, said in an official statement. (Snip) Boitano joins tennis player Billie Jean King and Olympic ice hockey bronze medalist Caitlin Cahow as the third openly gay athlete
The A&E Network’s suspension of Phil Robertson, star of the most popular reality show in the history of television, for espousing views on homosexuality identical to those found in the New Testament may not be the first PC lynching in the history of our country, but it is certainly now the most prominent. It is also a singular example of how political correctness, via cultural relativism, is used to undermine democracy and freedom of speech and is, at its core, fascistic. Yes, I just used the f-word and quite deliberately. PC and cultural relativism are the godchildren of Martin Heidegger
