Obama taps Biden to craft new
policies to curb gun violence
in wake of shooting

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/19/2012 1:04:23 PM

Washington - President Obama on Wednesday tapped Vice President Biden to lead an administration-wide effort looking at gun control and other measures in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting last week. "The fact that this problem is complex can no longer be an excuse for doing nothing," Obama said. The move marks the first concrete step by the White House toward crafting new firearms restrictions. The president did not announce any major policy decisions on Wednesday, but said the task force of Cabinet officials and outside organizations led by Biden would submit legislative proposals

Comments:
You knew this was going to happen. Any non important distraction from the real problems facing Washington and US today. Notice, places Holder, "Fast and Furious I & II" to be involved.

I would be okay with Joe Biden being banned from owning any type of weapon. Even a spoon. Other than that, everyone else is off limits.

Anyone with the intellectual capacity of Joe Biden should be restricted to Hyposquirts and Nerfball guns.

Biden? Joe Biden, really? Biden is a very cruel joke perpetrated on our country in the first place. Now this? As said in earlier comment, Joe Biden certainly will be headed for the southside of Chicago to get first had information? Yeh, right!

I´m sure Joe will do as swell a job with this as he did with tracking the stimulus.

Smokin´ Joe was in charge of making sure that all the bazillions of porkulus money was properly funneled into the Obama campaign and he got that done so let´s not be to hard on his executive abilities.

Just pass a law making it illegal to shoot people. Voila! No more gun violence. Nobody would ever dare to break a law, would they?

I wonder if there will be anybody representing Second Amendment supporters on Obama´s task force, or will they all be foaming at the mouth, gun grabber progressives? I want there to be NRA, Gun Owners of America and Jews for the Second Amendment people on this task force so that maybe we can get a word in sideways. I can see it now. Obama will pick morons like that limey scum, Piers Morgan and the raving looney Ed Shultz. Maybe he will get that spittle slinging creep Chris Matthews!

1. A rational [if impatient] mind asks, "Why just violence committed with guns?"

2. A rational, more-patiently analytical mind says, "With over 24,000 ´gun-control´ laws, with laws against murder in every state and jurisdiction, and with police on-call everywhere, all having proved useless in the face of insanity driven by off-the-scale evil, more of the same is mind-numbingly stupid. And more than a little of the same will mean tyranny, not protection."

3. Acknowledged reality understands: a. there will always be the chance of such horrors, as long as humans are what we are; b. too many are reaching for a mythical perfection [a solution that´s non-existent] that is the enemy of the achievable good responses; and c. we ourselves are the best available defense [when present, trained, alert, armed, and mentally pre-prepared].

4. No one in gov´t/politics [the gap or difference between them is small, and shrinks continuously] can or will consider any part of the above.

Since most gun violence is committed by people who could be certifiably crazy. An insane idiot like Joe Biden should be able to clearly understand what motivates these people.

Pistorius Trial to Adjourn
After Hearings Until May 5
New York Times, by Alan Cowell    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/16/2014 11:50:28 AM     Post Reply
Pretoria, South Africa — The judge in the trial of Oscar Pistorius, the disabled track star accused of murdering his girlfriend, said on Wednesday that proceedings would be postponed after hearings end on Thursday, until May 5, two days before South Africa’s national election. The prosecution had sought the postponement on Tuesday to avoid scheduling conflicts with other cases. The Pistorius trial has already run far beyond the three weeks scheduled when it opened in early March, and has generated 2,000 pages of detailed testimony, Judge Thokozile Matilda Masipa said. While May 5 may not be a “suitable” date because

Iraq Shuts Down the Abu Ghraib
Prison, Citing Security Concerns

Baghdad - The Iraqi government said Tuesday that it had closed the Abu Ghraib prison, the site of a notorious prisoner abuse scandal during the American occupation of Iraq, because of fears that it could be overrun by Sunni insurgents who have gained strength over the last year. In a statement, the Justice Ministry said it had moved 2,400 prisoners to other high-security prisons in central and northern Iraq, adding that Abu Ghraib’s location — west of central Baghdad and on the edge of insurgent-controlled areas of Anbar Province — had become a “hot zone.” It was not clear whether the closing was permanent, or if the prison might reopen

Did GM Reject Safer Ignition Switch
Design in 2001 Because of Cost?
NBC News, by Rich Gardella & Talesha Reynolds    Original Article

Newly released internal GM documents reveal that the company in 2001 considered -- and rejected – an ignition switch design that two prominent safety advocates say could have avoided the problem that led the automaker to recall millions of vehicles this year. The company’s decision to reject the safer switch was motivated by cost, the advocates say. They say GM documents show that design was the same one GM quietly began providing years later, in 2006, as a replacement part, and is now beginning to add to all recalled vehicles. (Snip) In the letter, Ditlow and Claybrook say that “obscure but ‘smoking gun’” documents released

Stoned mom avoids jail after
driving 12 miles with baby on roof

An Arizona mother will avoid jail time after she got high and drove nearly 12 miles with her 2-month-old baby on the roof of her car. Maricopa County Superior Judge Cynthia Bailey sentenced 21-year-old Catalina Mariah Clouser on Wednesday to 16 years of supervised probation. She will have to serve 3 months in jail only if she violates the order, a local CBS affiliate reported. Miss Clouser pleaded guilty in February to child abuse and driving under the influence of marijuana after her infant son was found miraculously unhurt in the middle of a Phoenix highway in June 2012, still strapped into his car seat, Reuters reported.

Michael Bloomberg:

Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City, said it’s his work for more gun control — along with his anti-smoking and healthy eating campaigns — that have won him God’s favor and a sure spot behind the Pearly Gates. His exact words, made in context of discussing his smoking cessation and anti-obesity pushes, as well as his concerted crackdowns on private gun ownership, to the New York Times were: “I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.”

A Nebraska mother frantically called the police when she was unable to find her 3-year-old son inside their apartment. Meanwhile, in a bowling alley across the street from that apartment, patrons were marveling at the site of a little boy—surrounded by stuffed animals—sitting inside an arcade-style claw machine. [Tweet] According to a report from Omaha TV station KETV, bowling alley employees called the vendor who unlocked the machine and let the boy out. The boy was unharmed, and quickly reunited with mom, according to the report. The child even got to keep one of the stuffed animals.

Biden to lead $600 million
work force training effort

Sheriff Joe has a new mission. President Obama on Wednesday tasked Vice President Joseph R. Biden with leading a new $600 million White House job training program. The duo will officially announce the initiative during a speech in Pittsburgh on Wednesday afternoon. It’s not uncommon for Mr. Obama to delegate specific programs to his vice president. In 2009, for example, the president dubbed Mr. Biden the “sheriff” of his stimulus package. The program announced Wednesday will funnel nearly $500 million into a Labor Department “job-training competition,” through which partnerships of community colleges, employers and industry can

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

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

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

White babies just 15 months old show racial

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. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than
