Here´s a plan. Let´s prohibit the use of guns in movies and video games. Then let´s allow mental diagnosis to be made part of a person´s background that is checked before they are allowed to buy a gun.

What a collection of ugly mugs. How many of you brain dead twits have armed personal security? I´m guessing 90-100%. You disarm first. Then walk the streets of South Chicago after midnight. If you do that then we can talk.

Well, they can demand a plan and expect prompt compliance why?...because they pretend on film? Sorry, this gives them no credibility.

Freedom and the Constitution trump Hollywood ignorance every time.

As William S. Burroughs once said, “After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn’t do it.”




People don’t stop killers. People with guns do.

Who cares what these vacuous dingdongs have to say? All of them are so far removed from the realities of real life that they probably still don´t know what they were talking about, long after the PSA was recorded.

Shove off, girlies. You´re annoying enough just doing what you usually do.

Liberals can´t find much they like. They don´t like gun owners, white guys, christians, oil companies, the military, capitalists, independence, responsibility, budgets, truth, integrity, ethics, states, car owners, babies, Christmas, Easter, Pledge of Allegiance, or America. I don´t like Hollywood, their movies, videos, or music.

We don´t hear anything about the carnage at the Clackamas Mall near Portland Oregon just two days before Sandy Hook School!!

A man with a semi-automatic weapon entered the Mall and began shooting random people.

Fortunately, another man with a concealed carry permit was in the mall, after helping his companion and her child hide, he ran toward the sound of shots.

He hid behind a column, and peeked out, aiming at the gunman. He hesitated, there were innocent civilians in the line of fire, he couldn´t shoot.

But the gunman saw the aimed weapon, dropped his rifle and pulled a gun to shoot himself.

Good guys with guns stop bad guys with guns!

Each day, at least 99.9999% of legal gun owners do not shoot their weapons in a crime.

Every year, 2.5 million legal gun owners stop/prevent a crime with their legal gun, the vast majority never actually shoot that weapon at the time.

These publicity seekers have no more standing to "demand a plan" than any other citizens of the United States.

Beyonce ought to have a dialogue with her husband Jay Z about the violent hip-hop culture on which much of his and their fortune is based.

When Beyonce recently had a baby, she had a wing of a hospital cordoned off and protected against the hoi polloi by ARMED GUARDS. Paltrow hates the USA so much she chooses to live in Europe. That renders comments from those two invalid. Aniston I only know as a bimbo who makes the front pages of the supermarket tabloids bemoaning the fact that she lost her man to another bimbo. None of them has the brains to make a cogent statement about anything.

Message to Beyonce, how did your husband make his money. Didn´t he initially make his money via drugs and gun violence, then by glorifying drugs and gun violence.

To the rest of these useful village idiots, you have no ground whatsoever to stand on and preach to anybody. Your industry has greatly contributed the the deviancy in this culture. The lack of morals and perversion in this culture comes from many sources, one of them being the movie and music business.

Everytime ANY of these fools speak up, remind them of what they have done to become so wealthy and hateful at the same time. These vile creatures have been laying low since the shooting because they are desperately looking for the talking points to put them on some moral high ground. Those talking points DO NO EXIST.

They think they can be embolden by the media and their master´s latest action. To Jennifer, get married and pregnant, you are pathetic. To Beyonce, not buying your pregnancy bit. To the rest of these parasites, get on your knees and pray.

Yes. If we had just put armed guards at our schools like like we do at our movie studios this wouldnt have happened.
Liberals have declared our schools to be ´Gun free zones´. If your a mental loon hellbent on killing people where are you going to go? Places with armed guards or Gun free zones?

Liberals have sullied our culture...their vile
Life styles, drugs, immorality, violence laden films...they hold much of the responsibility ...they have irresponsibly sold that lifestyle to our children.

I think there needs to be a cap on their salaries at one million dollars...Not ever over that amount per year . ......and a special tax on them and all their films ...to support guards in movie theaters and schools as punishment for what they have wrought on our children and society...it´s for the children after all... They should certainly approve of that...let Beyonce and Gwennith and Jennifer lead on that one... They live to blather so have at it Libtards.

Why does society including liberals like these twits put a higher value on white kids than black ones. I haven´t heard an PSA´s from them about gangbanger shooting sprees. They have to have pat downs at gangbanger´s funerals now.

One of the main reasons for these school shootings is the shooters involved were bullied themselves and internalized the anger an resentment. This turns to plans to get even.

It looks to me like this Conn. kid had a very extreme case of social phobia and his mom was pushing him to inter act with other people which he rejected so much,he went off half cocked.

Way back in the mid 80´s my daughter was afraid to walk down the hallways at schools because of thug name calling and sexual harassment.I can just imagine how much worse it´s gotten the last several years.

You have teachers unions who fight tooth and nail to keep kids trapped in their ugly schools.Obama opposed the school voucher system in DC before congress reinstated it.Of course his pearly kids go to a safe private school.The ACLU is always there to say government money can´t be used to indoctrinate a kid to a religious school.What they really hate is the kid learning values.

Here are some hard facts. Jennifer Aniston employs security from Screen International Security Services. She has 24x7 armed protection, she right now has a two-man team at her residence, and ANOTHER two-man team at her new residence. She has a special team that comes with her when she travels. ALL are armed and with her day and night.

As far as "assault" weapons are concerned, the Sandy Hook a-hole used a Glock and a Sig Sauer handgun, both are 9mm. Neither is an assault weapon. These are typical guns used by police and security guards. And by Jennifer Aniston´s armed security.

Screw you Hollywood.

Eric Holder strays from planned remarks

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

WASHINGTON — An attorney for Rep. Bobby Rush said Wednesday that the South Side Democrat is cooperating with an inquiry by the Office of Congressional Ethics. Scott E. Thomas, a Washington lawyer, said Rush had retained his firm, Dickstein Shapiro, and “asked that we be cooperative and provide the information requested.” Thomas, a former chairman of the Federal Election Commission, did not disclose the subject of the inquiry. But he did say: “We believe that the circumstances being reviewed do not warrant any ethics sanctions, and we are hopeful that this inquiry will be concluded relatively soon.” At the Office

Two days after stunning new revelations about his role as an FBI informant, the Rev. Al Sharpton proved Wednesday that he can still draw a crowd - and the praise of powerful politicians. Mayor de Blasio hailed the civil rights activist as a “blessing,” and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder spoke as well, as Sharpton opened a three-day convention of his National Action Network at a midtown hotel. The White House said the new details about Sharpton’s cooperation with the FBI would not change President Obama’s plans to give the keynote speech at the gathering on Friday. “Rev. Sharpton and

In a major new development in the IRS scandal, House Republicans voted on Wednesday to send a criminal referral to the Department of Justice for former IRS chief Lois Lerner. None of the networks covered the vote, however. The letter sent to Attorney General Eric Holder stated that "findings" from the Ways and Means Committee "suggest that Lerner may have violated multiple criminal statutes." The letter went on to add that "the Committee asks that you pursue this evidence." The networks ignored this letter, however, although CBS and ABC talked about Hillary Clinton´s presidential aspirations. Other developments in the letter

When President Barack Obama arrived in Houston about 3:45 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, former President George H. W. Bush was there to greet him. "When the president comes to your hometown, you show up to meet him," said Bush, who chatted with Obama and the first lady for about five minutes at the foot of the steps next to Air Force One at Bush Intercontinental Airport. Obama greeted about 50 well-wishers behind a barricade and chatted and shook hands for about 10 minutes before leaving for a meeting with about 30 members of the Democratic National Committee at the Museum District

As new details emerged about his four-year stint in the 1980s as a confidential informer for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Rev. Al Sharpton thought enough of the attention to hold a news conference to address what became front-page fodder for New York tabloids for two days this week. But to use Sharpton-esque language, the revelation was nothing but an elevation. At the annual convention of the organization he founded in 1991, the National Action Network, there was no hint of any discord or doubt. The United States attorney general, Eric H. Holder Jr., and Mayor Bill de Blasio

PORTLAND -- She´s the talk of her school and the entire city. After a speech from Hillary Clinton, a 6-year-old Portland girl asked a question that had everyone in Keller Auditorium on the edge of their seats. The moderator read from a card during a question-and-answer period. The final question: "This is from Zola Demarco, she is 6 years old and she addresses this to H.R. Clinton and she says, ´In 2016, would you prefer to be called Madame President or Mrs. President?´" Watching the footage on an iPad in her kindergarten class Wednesday morning, Zola got a first look

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) sent tax documents on a targeted conservative group to Democratic staff on the House Oversight Committee, newly released emails show, despite previous denials by ranking Oversight Democrat Elijah Cummings (D., Md.) that such contact had occurred. Emails released by the GOP-led Oversight Committee show Democratic staff requested information from the IRS’ tax-exempt division on True The Vote, a conservative group that monitors polling places for voter fraud. Republicans and conservative activists say the IRS tax-exempt division, led by former official Lois Lerner, targeted dozens of conservative groups because of their politics while ignoring similar progressive

The Treasury Department has raised $2.38 billion after selling a large chunk of its stock in Ally Financial Inc. as part of the government´s ongoing effort to recoup the billions of dollars spent bailing out companies during the 2008 financial crisis. Treasury said Wednesday that it got $25 each for the 95 million shares it sold in an initial public offering. The pricing of the IPO came at the low end of the forecast range of $25 to $28 per share. The sale brought the amount it has recouped from the bailout of Ally to $17.7 billion, slightly more than the

SEATTLE- Amanda Skorjanc was watching videos with her infant son when the lights in her home started to flicker and shake. She looked outside and saw a terrifying sight: a massive mudslide crashing down the hillside, and nearby houses "exploding" from its force. A neighbor´s chimney was barreling toward her door, so Skorjanc gripped her son tightly and turned away. "I held onto that baby like it was the only purpose that I had," she said. "I did not let that baby go for one second." When it was over, the powerful river of mud and debris had laid waste

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
