Obama’s Unserious Gun Proposals
National Review Online, by John H. Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/17/2013 12:22:40 AM

President Obama unveiled his proposals to combat gun violence today, and they turned out to be anti-climactic. There were no surprises, unless you expected him to mention the culture of violence fostered by Democratic-party donors in Hollywood and the video-game industry. He didn’t. The administration’s gun proposals turned out to be retreads. Obama could have tried something new, perhaps something more sweeping: a ban on all semiautomatic rifles, perhaps, or even a ban that includes some handguns. Instead, the White House paper that explains the president’s proposals says the administration wants to ban “military-style

Thank you Comrade Obama for saving new generations from the American way of life. All this time I just thought you were a tax and spend socialist.

I was just reading the headlines on a local paper and the breaking news was some woman had been shot in the leg walking down the street.I´m sure she´s laying in the hospital bed wondering why Obama´s exe. orders didn´t help her.

The pure insanity of punishing law abiding citizens while the criminal element goes untouched is beyond my level of comprehension,just like Obama defenders saying his kids are more important than other people´s kids.

At least Obama didn´t propose putting more signs up around schools..Or did he?

It seems the purpose of all this is simply to cement the messages "Democrats Care" and "Republicans Don´t Care" into the already clouded minds of the electorate. To fully implement socialism with a disarmed citizenry, the pro-Obama majority must be made still larger and unable to "revert" in sympathy back to constitutionalism. Painting Democrats - regardless of their actions or the failed results of their actions - as moral superiors is definitely the way to go, especially as no resistance to this arrogant stance is ever, ever offered by the GOP. Game and match: Obama.

I still think that he´s using the Newtown tragedy to get control of the nation´s debt ceiling. We´ll be SO relieved to get off easy when we were ready to tear the Republic apart by resisting siezure with force, we won´t notice when Obama rescues his "signaure legislation" (Obamacare) by swiping control of the purse strings from a weak and ineffectual congress.

The seminar poster,The Lagomorph, misses the point. Obama´s proposals will do nothing to prevent the types of mass shootings which this E.O. is touted as targeting. If Obama and the left were really serious about killings and violence, they would focus on cracking down on gangs and implementing common sense crime control measures. He´s not, hence these stupid E.O.s. As usual, the left and the Lagomorph eat this up with a spoon. He ´´cares.´´

But does nothing except posture.

And no, Dr.s have no right digging into your personal life on the orders of the government.

Is the Lagomorph´s real name Winston Smith?

#10, Adam Lanza had 3 weapons he stole from his mother: two pistols and a rifle. And you think that´s a lot of weapons? That´s the minimum you should have to defend your home.

The only thing Nancy Lanza did wrong was to not move a day sooner to have her son committed.

"Doctors do need to ask such individuals and their families about weapons; "

0bama´s goal is to deputize doctors in order for them to ask all their patients about guns. My husband and I refuse to answer those questions on medical forms, and we will never have that discussion with any physician. :-)

#10 It´s not uncommon for much of America to have over a dozen guns, and measure their ammo by the *thousands* of rounds. I never would have believed that growing up in NY, but trust me, it´s true in middle America, and my neck of the woods. Oh yeah, it´s much safer where I live now. Imagine that.

Actually, he´s not directing doctors to ask about guns--he´s just saying that they are not prohibited from doing so (which is open to dispute, and disputes are already in the making). I think that "appoint an ATF director" says a lot about what´s going on here--it´s flagrant "padding", just something to give him another another EO to list so he will look like he´s "doing something". I´m kind of surprised, he´s kind of voting "present" on this one and tossing it into Cogress´ lap IMO.

They are setting precedence. By allowing these EO´s about guns to stand because we don´t think they are that bad, he sets precedence for using the EO for gun control in the future with more harsh legislation.

#10, the Newtown and Aurora murderers are both highly intelligent men. They would certainly have devised some other way to cause the mayhem they craved.

You seem to be forgetting, too, that Holmes had rigged/booby-trapped his apartment to explode, in order to distract the first responders. He would have succeeded in that, too, had his trigger device fired off correctly. It took authorities days to clear out his explosives.

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
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

The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

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

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

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.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports.

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast.
