State Senator Slams ‘Asinine’ Newspaper
Editors Who Published Gun Permit Map

New York Observer, by Hunter Walker

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 12/27/2012 7:52:28 AM

Over the weekend, The Journal News newspaper published maps with the addresses and names of pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties. The information for the map was legally obtained by the paper through a Freedom of Information Act request, however it sparked a nationwide controversy among those who considered the map a privacy violation. This morning, State Senator Greg Ball weighed in by proposing legislation to keep gun records private and prevent the publication of similar stories in the future. He also blasted “the asinine editors at The Journal News” who published the map.

We are proud of our State Sen. Greg Ball. In this move he has pointed out the obvious--legal owners of firearms have been plunged into the category of sex offenders; they have been placed within the reach of those wishing to acquire those firearms by theft, etc.

I am not amused at the reckless behavior of the publishers of that newspaper who have placed me in danger!

How about publishing a list of those who have had taxpayer funded abortions? How about the names and addresses of those on welfare?

I´d like to know which of my neighbors have EBT cards that I pay for. I was shocked the other day when I got some cash back when making a purchase at the grocery or Target or wherever, that the cash back limit with a debit card was $60 and the cash back limit with an EBT card was $30. What?!? Why should anyone be allowed to get cash with an EBT card? I thought those were for groceries to help the "poor and hungry." But now you can get cash back to gamble, buy drugs, pay for prostitutes, whatever. And that´s OUR money!! Hell´s bells, no wonder Obama was re-elected.

Actually, I think this is beneficial to the gun owners. Besides telling the bad guys that this home is not a soft target, it tells the neighbors they should be polite.

Did the newspaper think the non-gun owners were going to show up with their pitchforks and demand people surrender their firearms?

The editors of this paper got their just desserts when that blogger published the names and addresses with phone numbers of the employees of this newspaper. This should happen everytime these lunkheads try this garbage. I notice they are very careful with the privacy of those who follow their lib agendas though.

Crime and Punishment and Obama
New York Times, by Bill Keller    Original Article

I doubt any president has been as well equipped as Barack Obama to appreciate the vicious cycle of American crime and punishment. As a community organizer in Chicago in the 1980s, he would have witnessed the way a system intended to protect the public siphoned off young black men, gave them an advanced education in brutality, and then returned them to the streets unqualified for — and too often, given the barriers to employment faced by those who have done time, disqualified from — anything but a life of more crime. He would have understood that the suffering of victims

Make Jobs, Not Propaganda
Washington Post Writers Group, by Robert Samuelson    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 2/24/2014 8:16:11 AM     Post Reply
The great virtue of the Congressional Budget Office´s recent report on the minimum wage is that it injects a much-needed dose of reality into the debate over job creation. The Obama administration and its congressional allies have taken the position that raising the minimum wage almost 40 percent would have little, if any, adverse effect on jobs. The CBO rejects this view as unlikely. The gap between the administration´s claim and plausible outcomes reveals larger inconsistencies in the White House´s boast that job creation is a top economic priority. Under the proposal, the federal minimum wage would go from today´s $7.25

ObamaCare and My Mother´s

When my mother was diagnosed with carcinoid cancer in 2005, when she was 49, it came as a lightning shock. Her mother, at 76, had yet to go gray, and her mother´s mother, at 95, was still playing bingo in her nursing home. My mother had always been, despite her diminutive frame, a titanic and irrepressible force of vitality and love. She had given birth to me and my nine younger siblings, and juggled kids, home and my father´s medical practice with humor and grace for three decades. She swam three times a week in the early mornings, ate healthily

Labor must learn from its setbacks

In the early days of Barack Obama’s presidency, the union movement believed it had the wind at its back. Big Labor had spent lavishly on the Obama campaign from its earliest days – and expected remuneration. Despite favoritism from the Obama administration – privileging the United Auto Workers over secured creditors in the GM and Chrysler bankruptcies; steering stimulus funds towards unions; taking legal action against Boeing for opening a new plant in right-to-work South Carolina, etc. – it has turned out that a union renaissance isn’t in the cards.Labor’s biggest wish, the Orwellianly titled “Employee Free Choice Act”

Mr. Obama backpedals on
entitlement reform
Washington Post, by Editorial    Original Article

PRESIDENT OBAMA has not released his budget for fiscal year 2015, but he has already let it be known that one good idea won’t be in it: Unlike last year, Mr. Obama will not propose the use of a more accurate inflation factor, “chained CPI,” in the government’s annual adjustments to Social Security and other benefits. This is a huge disappointment. As far as anyone can tell, the president’s view on the merits of chained CPI hasn’t changed. The measure would save $162.5 billion over the next decade, according to the Congressional Budget Office, thus helping to trim the entitlement costs

ObamaCare Joblessness

ObamaCare: Secretary of HHS Kathleen Sebelius claims "there is absolutely no evidence" that health reform is killing jobs. Liars are legion in politics, but they usually stop short of claiming the sun didn´t rise this morning. In George Orwell´s "1984," "Doublethink" was the government´s "conscious deception while retaining the firmness of purpose that goes with complete honesty." Maybe Sebelius really believes it when she says "every economist will tell you" there is no "job loss related to the Affordable Care Act," that it is all "a popular myth." Maybe Congressional Budget Office Director Douglas Elmendorf, with a bachelor´s degree in economics from Princeton

On the "Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon, First Lady Michelle Obama explained that it was more important than ever for young people older than 26 to sign up for health insurance. "A lot of young people think they´re invincible, but the truth is young people are knuckleheads," she laughed, pointing out that they often cut themselves while cooking or injure themselves by dancing on bar stools. Obama added that thanks to Obamacare, coverage for young people was much cheaper. "Now young people can get insurance for as little as $50 a month, less than the cost of gym shoes,"

Liberals have bubkes on Scott Walker

On the night of June 5, 2012, as it became apparent that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker would fend off a $22 million recall effort lodged against him, dejected MSNBC host Ed Schultz found a silver lining for liberals: “Scott Walker could very well be indicted in the coming days.” The following March, a nearly three-year secretive investigation was closed, without any charges filed against Walker. Walker became a leading hate figure among the American left for having the temerity to challenge public sector unions as part of his efforts to avert a budget crisis. Over time, his reforms gained popularity, and liberal

Is Ukraine on the verge of civil war? Or is the Putin-backed Yanukovych government’s attempted crackdown on a strong and resilient opposition of many thousands of protesters and countless other sympathizers more like the Jaruzelski communist government’s imposition of martial law against Solidarity in 1981 or the Soviets’ invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968 or the Red Army’s massacre of Hungarians in 1956? History moved slowly, but by 1989-1991 it was clear which side in the end had prevailed, and it wasn’t the Soviets. History now is moving faster.

President Obama, fresh off a three-day weekend of golf and “climate change” scare-mongering in California, has once again turned his attention to the issue Americans care most about: Raising the minimum wage to $10.10. Just kidding. Actually, Gallup did a poll just last week on what Americans feel is the country’s biggest problem. The Top 10 list went like this: • Unemployment and jobs • The economy • Dissatisfaction with government • High cost of health care • Federal debt • Illegal aliens . Family decline • Poor education • Lack of money • Poverty Shockingly, raising the minimum wage

   

 



 
Why Kerry Is Flat Wrong
on Climate Change

In a Feb. 16 speech in Indonesia, Secretary of State John Kerry assailed climate-change skeptics as members of the "Flat Earth Society" for doubting the reality of catastrophic climate change. He said, "We should not allow a tiny minority of shoddy scientists" and "extreme ideologues to compete with scientific facts." But who are the Flat Earthers, and who is ignoring the scientific facts? (Snip)We are among today´s scientists who are skeptical about the so-called consensus on climate change. Does that make us modern-day Flat Earthers, as Mr. Kerry suggests, or are we among those who defy the prevailing wisdom

Watching Season 2 of “House of Cards.” Not to be a scold or humorless, but do Washington politicians understand how they make themselves look when they embrace the show and become part of its promotion by spouting its famous lines? Congressmen only work three days a week. Each shot must have taken two hours or so—the setup, the crew, the rehearsal, the learning the line. How do they have time for that? Why do they think it’s good for them? “House of Cards” very famously does nothing to enhance Washington’s reputation. It reinforces the idea that the capital has no room

Julie Boonstra, a cancer patient who was kicked of off her health plan due to Obamacare, lashed out at Rep. Gary Peters (D., Mich.) on Saturday after lawyers for his campaign demanded that Michigan broadcasters cease airing ads featuring her story. Boonstra, a Michigan resident, was diagnosed with leukemia five years ago.

On Sunday evening, award-winning actor and prominent left-wing activist Alec Baldwin announced that he was leaving "public life"--and blamed "Roger Ailes. And Fox. And Breitbart." In an extended rant to Joe Hogan, posted on vulture.com and published in New York magazine, Baldwin recounted his run-ins with paparazzi, his gay slur controversies, and his ill-fated talk show on MSNBC--but he reserved special resentment for Breitbart. "There is a core of outlets that are pushing these stories out. Breitbart clutters the blogosphere with ´Alec Baldwin, he’s the Devil, he’s Fidel Baldwin,´" Baldwin claimed.

The Obama administration is launching an “attack” on the Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D programs as part of Obamacare that will result in higher costs and fewer health care options for seniors, according to a U.S. House subcommittee. The administration is quietly introducing “policies that would undermine the integrity and success of the Medicare Part D program” according to the subcommittee. President Bush signed Medicare Part D into law in 2003 to subsidize prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries. The Daily Caller has learned that the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Health will hold a hearing Feb.

The head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, which monitors diversity in the NFL, expects the league to institute a rule where players would be penalized 15 yards for using the N-word on the field. John Wooten, the head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, anticipates that the NFL´s competition committee will enact the rule at the owners´ meeting next month.

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

The Obama administration warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday not to react too aggressively to the fast-moving developments in Ukraine, where pro-Western demonstrators forced the nation’s Moscow-backed president from power over the weekend. National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the situation unfolding in Kiev “reflects the will of the Ukrainian people and the interests of the United States and Europe,” and that Russia would be making a “grave mistake” if it sends in military forces to try to reverse the developments — or to seize control of pro-Moscow eastern Ukraine.

WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to announce on Tuesday the opening of two new manufacturing institutes in the Chicago and Detroit areas as part of a larger plan to use public-private partnerships to advance his agenda despite opposition from Republicans in Congress. Several federal agencies will join forces with companies and universities to run the institutes, which will be devoted to bridging the gap between applied research and product development, according to an administration official familiar with the plans. Each institute will function as a “teaching factory,” the official said, and will provide training for workers while also helping companies get the

Chaos in Kiev could set off a tsunami that will toss Western Europe from its moorings too. It is a mistake to think we are watching from a safe distance.
