Lots of people like Joe Biden. He´s the zany uncle, the benign bumbler who shows up at Thanksgiving dinner and takes over conversation with confusing stories, not all of them off-color. Joe is from Delaware, a place that´s famous for absolutely nothing. Joe likes to ride the choo-choo trains. He talks a lot, which can be good in politics. He often talks before thinking about the words coming out of his mouth, which can not be good in politics. Obama keeps the harmless guy around because Biden makes the president look smooth and smart.
Yup, followed ol´ Joe´s advice......went out and got the li´l lady a...........10 guage. Sure, she´s only 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighs under a buck but hey, he´ the Veep. He must know what he´s talking about.
Jill Biden is a doctor, right? That means that she should have SOME brains, right? Poor Jill, she just has to be the most embarrassed and humiliated woman in America. She´s actually married to this extremely ignorant, stupid, and barely functional human being.
what stupid people in charge of the country.. their handlers (the EU and Russia) are feeding them all their lines recently.. even democrats - are not believing what they say now... they are stupid... stupid.. at LEAST get back to Rahm and Ayers.. THEY have a clue as to propagandizing the American people.. biden.. stupid.. great video..
Biden is proof positive - your kids don´t need to ´stay in school´ - all they have to do is be a high-profile idiot to succeed...
And - since the Vice President has just ´instructed´ Americans to ´shoot thru the door´ - probably the most stupid piece of ´legal advice´ to come out of Washington in the last century...
It´s gonna´ be really damned amusing when Biden is subpoenaed to the first case where some errant citizen follows his advice - and becomes the first American to use ´White House Stupid´ as a defense strategy.
What the hell is it about liberals and the utter lack of valid thought processes?
My wife and I prefer a handgun - even for home safety. I will confess I just bought a Mossberg 500 police trade-in just for fun....
A hand gun takes one hand to operate (you must practice) and you can hold a flashlight with the other, keeping the pistol at "low ready" until you are sure you are shooting at a threat and not a stupid kid or an inebriated neighbor.
That old wives´ tale about the sound of a racking shotgun scaring away bad guys is just that. Try this experiment: have your shottie behind the bedroom door. Start yelling at your wife when she´s in bed that there´s an intruder and she has to get to the shotgun NOW anad rack it NOW. Keep yelling over and over. Scream at her. Yell in her ear. See if she can do it before breaking down and crying and kicking you in the pants. That´s how the adrenalin dump is going to feel in the real situation. If she (or you) can´t do it under those circumstances, don´t expect to be able to pull it off when your house is invaded.
If I need to use my firearm in self defense in my own home, the only thing the bad guy will hear are the shots AFTER he feels the impact of hollow-point rounds.
Biden is--how can I say this sotto voce?--a blithering idiot, an embarrassment all day long. It amazes me that he could have gotten elected to anything. Those Delaware boobs who voted for him must be as dumb as barnacles.
A gun is the only true equalizer when a smaller person is attacked by a larger, more aggressive one. My best friend´s sister who used to work until after dark in downtown Nashville was given a .25 caliber "pocket piece" by her father. One night that gun probably saved her life. At a nearly deserted 5th and Broadway she was waiting for the light to turn green when a car pulled up behind her and hit her rear bumper, slightly damaging it. Most people´s inclination would be to get out, inspect the damage, and write down the idiot´s insurance information, but she knew that he had hit her deliberately, probably hoping to rob, rape, or kidnap her. So she stayed inside the car, took her gun out of her purse, and waited. Sure enough the guy (who had a pistol of his own) came to her driver´s window and found himself staring down a barrel. End of encounter!
A couple of million times a year the same thing happens in America. As has been said over and over, when seconds count, the police are minutes away. Self defense is one of the most basic of human rights. Any politicians who want to take away our ability to defend ourselves ought to be given a plumeopician (e.g. covered in tar and feathers) ride out of D.C. I´m not kidding about that.
I´m no Joe Biden, but I´d suggest that getting a pistol you can handle and equipping it with a laser or even better, a laser and light, is a good idea for home defense. Then you have a potential hand free and you can shoot from awkward positions without aiming, just using the laser dot. Shotguns are great, but hard to shoot well for most people in a home situation. On the other hand, something is better than nothing and we are picking up sides on those who would fight for their family and those who trust someone like Joe Biden with their life.
The poster who wondered how Doctor Jill Biden, who must be, perforce, brilliant, should know that Doctor Biden is a junior college instructor whose fairly recent doctoral degree is in Education. Not an MD or a PhD. Just an EdD. Nowhere near as rigorous an academic pursuit as, say, Mrs. Cheney´s doctorate, about which we heard nothing,

Joe Biden is a moron. Old Joe is giving very bad advice to anyone that will listen. Never shoot through a door. Only shoot if the perp gets into your home. Then, empty the magazine. Just make sure that the perp is inside of your home. Don´t listen to Joe.
Most days here we´re talking about relatively serious stuff -- politics, political maneuvering, political tactics, political speeches, political gaffes, political scandals. Oh, and politicians. Like the Chicagoan currently inhabiting the White House with his mother-in-law while teaching America about his adopted hometown´s chronic style of political ops. We´re all sorry about that. Anyway, today we´re doing something completely different. It's Sunday, which means the National Football League. And it's December, which means the playoffs are shaping up. We're not writing about the games though. We're writing about the show biz side
Merry Christmas, everyone, and hello, my name is Renee Ellmers, and I represent North Carolina’s Second Congressional District. Like many of you, I’m frustrated with the president’s health care law, especially where jobs and working families are concerned. I say this not only as a congresswoman and chair of the Republican Women’s Policy Committee; I say it as a nurse and the mother of a son in college. After all, it’s often women who make the health care decisions for our families. We put a lot of time and thought into these choices and how they’ll affect our budgets. So by canceling your insurance — despite a promise
The holiday season is a time for remembering the bonds we share, and our obligations to one another as human beings. But right now, more than one million of our fellow Americans are poised to lose a vital economic lifeline just a few days after Christmas if Congress doesn’t do something about it. Our top priority as a country should be restoring opportunity and broad-based economic growth for all Americans. And yesterday, we learned that our businesses created about 200,000 jobs in the month of November. That’s more than 8 million new jobs in the last 45 months. And the unemployment rate fell to its lowest level in five
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
You may have noticed over these past 2,501 days that Barack Obama likes to give speeches, sometimes two or more a day. It´s better than Oval Office work. And yesterday the poor guy gave a particularly revealing one. He´s so desperate now that he modestly likened ObamaCare to the suffrage struggle and civil rights. [Snip] But here´s the largest challenge for Obama´s ObamaCare: He must ensure 40% of all enrollees are under 35 and willing to pay huge premiums for coverage they really don´t need. In the scaled eyes of our nation´s community organizer, that´s a kind of civic patriotism.
As everyone knows, California is the la-de-dah, laid-back land of liberalism that´s been Barack Obama´s political ATM for six years. Hollywood stars have loved him, fronted multi-multi-million-dollar fundraisers for him. The most populous state (home to 12 of every 100 Americans) has a Democrat governor again, two female Democrat senators and a Democrat super-majority in the state legislature that has yet to find a problem it didn´t want government making worse at great cost. In presidential politics California has been trending Democratic since 1992. [Snip] Now comes a stunning new poll revealing Obama’s California base has fallen out of love.
Never let a crisis -- or tragedy -- go to waste. So, here we are now with a weakened ObamaNation building an organizing event around the awfulness in Newtown, where a 22-year-old nut-job killed 20 innocent youngsters and six adult caretakers. No horrified parent or adult watching Connecticut a year ago needs reminding of what a national gut-kick that was. President Obama, of course, went to Newtown to utter another empty vow.
So, Barack Hussein Obama can tell where Americans are from just by looking at their faces. Imagine if he also knew their funny foreign names or detected defective English. How would Obama react if someone determined his birthplace by looking at that face of his? And what evil or good dreams lurk within that obviously wily Chicagoan´s mind. You didn´t see much about this Obama statement in the mainstream media last week. With the ObamaCare disaster all cleaned up, its website humming perfectly and the U.S. economy now roaring strongly, Obama lit out for West Coast fundraising.
According to the Obama White House, the first family consumed a Thanksgiving dinner of turkey, honey-baked ham, cornbread stuffing, oyster stuffing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, greens, green bean casserole, dinner rolls and macaroni and cheese. Then, the family washed all that down with nine kinds of pies: huckleberry, pecan, sweet potato, peach, apple, pumpkin, banana cream, coconut cream and chocolate cream. For years now First Lady Michelle Obama has been pushing her program called "Let´s Move!" for more exercise and better foods. But Gallup reports Americans prefer “Let’s Eat!”
Hello, I’m Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. As we celebrate this Thanksgiving holiday, it’s important for us all to reflect on our many blessings. Family and friends immediately come to mind. But there are many Americans who will not be able to celebrate this holiday season at their home. Some are serving our nation overseas, thousands of miles away. And in their world, the creature comforts you and I take for granted -- things like running water and electricity -- are considered luxuries.
President Obama's weekly remarks: Hi, everybody. On behalf of all the Obamas — Michelle, Malia, Sasha, Bo, and the newest member of our family, Sunny — I want to wish you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. We’ll be spending today just like many of you — sitting down with family and friends to eat some good food, tell stories, watch a little football and. most importantly, count our blessings. And as Americans, we have so much to be thankful for.
The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added which are of so extraordinary a nature that they can not fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever-watchful providence of Almighty God.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay

Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
One definition of a pathological liar is someone who lies where the truth would serve just as well. When President Obama’s uncle, Onyango Obama, was arrested in 2011 for drunk driving, the truth — that Obama had stayed with his uncle years earlier for several weeks as a Harvard law student — would have served the president just fine. No potential Obama voter would have held it against him that an uncle he had stayed with two decades earlier was picked up for DUI. Yet the White House went with a lie, claiming that Obama had never met his uncle. Now that
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
Although the jobless rate in November fell to its lowest level since he took office, President Obama called on Republican lawmakers Saturday to spend tens of billions on unemployment benefits that are set to expire this month. “It shouldn’t be a partisan issue,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. But he said the “economic lifeline” is in jeopardy. “All because Republicans in this Congress — which is on track to be the most unproductive in history — have so far refused to extend it” Mr. Obama said. If Congress doesn’t act before lawmakers leave on their holiday break, about
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
Many people could die as extreme weather becomes common. There will be more freak winds like the October storm, which killed four people. Heatwaves will be lethal and the sea level will rise, leaving coastal towns at risk of being swamped by storm surges. Sir Brian Heap, president of the European Academies Science Advisory Council, said he felt “obliged” to issue the warning after a new study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It comes on the back of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, which has killed more than 5,000 people. Sir Brian said: “Given the tragic events this
