There is no doubt that the Sandy Hook school massacre was an unspeakable tragedy but I doubt seriously that had the murdered children been killed at an inner-city school, Presidential Obama would be holding a conference using children as a dramatic prop for his dictatorial gun control agenda. Nor would there be hysterical politicians calling for tighter gun control laws nor column after column from leftwing writers exploiting the tragedy. The sad truth is that none of these demagogues care one bit about murdered black or Hispanic children unless the perpetrators of these crimes are white
They pretend we´re not serious about this, that we can be bullied into surrendering our God-given liberties because they don´t take God seriously. But God is there. He answers our heart-felt entreaties. He has been kind to this country of faithful believers, and forgives our lapses. Stand strong, Americans. The serpent worms through our midst. He reveals his power, the full extent of it. It is beatable.
To paraphrase a wise Ldotter: Remember those who cry loudest about the 26 who died at Sandy Hook are the same people who allow millions upon millions of children to be aborted in this nation. They don´t give a tinker´s damn about children unless it furthers their treasonous ambitions.
She makes a good point about race in America. However, she gets off-track with this quote, "Most members of the NRA practice stringent safety controls." Certainly, that is correct...but it is also true that most 20 year olds don´t shoot up elementary schools. The challenge is to preserve the rights of the "most" while dealing with the outliers - the few NRA members who may not practice stringent safety controls, the few 20 year olds who might shoot up elementary schools. If the standard were "most", we wouldn´t need "most" of the laws on the books, for "most" people don´t murder, rob, rape, or commit any other significant crimes.
If the Sandyhook tragedy happened at an inner city school it would have been covered and handled the same way. It´s preposterous to think otherwise. The reactions to the tragedy, however, don´t seem to follow common sense. Groupon has discontinued discounts on gun related businesses. Those discounts were all training related. Stupid or does Groupon now hate guns...period?!
If guns didn´t exist these urban savages would kill one another with some other handy weapon. This is a culture problem that needs to be addressed. Quit blaming guns, and the wrong type guns at that. Democrat push for gun control is more about disarming citizens to make their future subjugation by Democrat leftist politicians less hazardous.
FTA: I´m beginning to think a good portion of the nation has been lobotomized and has lost the ability to reason with any acuity.
Yup. And you can´t fix stupid.
FTA: I´m also waiting for the end to race-baiting pundits who shout "racist code words" whenever anybody tries to call a spade a spade. Dream on, Alicia.
Exactly. Instead of freedom from racial differences, as MLK dreamed, race has been turned into a ongoing business.No solutions to problems are really provided because that would eliminate the need for the business. Would you expect a drug dealer to drive his clients to rehabilitation clinics?
It leaves you wondering, how stupid are these people that they keep buying this garbage? Apparently, pretty darn stupid.
Remember when Idi Amin was a big joke? There is a pattern. Let´s also not forget that the roots of gun control in this country were in the reconstruction era to keep arms out of the hands of former slaves.
So many great cultures make up our unique America: construction, manufacturing, high technology, entertainment, medical, farming, ranching, the restaurant and food industry, and add to it one of the most stable of all cultures, citizen gun ownership mixing in harmoniously with all those other great cultures. Is it not a most responsible culture amongst all the other ones? We have a culture of citizen arms, and without it, there would be total chaos. Disarmed cities vividly prove that point. Our gun culture is a vital part of the true wealth of ths nation. The commie opportunists trying to take advantage of the horrible killings to smash this culture apart, are the very same people who want to kill unborn babies, who want the government to pay for the killing of unborn babies. Gun confiscators (to protect the kids) are one and the same propgandists who want to kill, abort, unborn babies. How frightening can this crime level hypocracy get?
Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood to remove Blacks and Hispanics from society in a way that was discrete and/or acceptable. It is nothing less than "Black and Hispanic Genocide". Yet the Democratic Party funds PPH and Blacks and Hispanics vote for Democrats 80% of the time. Don´t you think we need to start educating them and let them know the truth?
Several thoughts. Responsible gun ownership and responsibility saves lives. Was trained on gun safety from a young age, my training prevented me from being shot accidentally by a classmate.
Comments regarding 95% of people in Chicago being killed by handguns and minorities are dead on and can be extrapolated to most major cities. The results of a pathetically stupid and flawed culture embraced by minorities.
How cool would a webpage be that cataloged the number of minority youths killed by other minority youths in major US cities? Maybe call it the race to 26? Insensitive of me I know but,,,,,,,
Let me see if I have this straight. The muslim brothhood is our # 1 enemy in the world. Their broBama wants me to surrender my guns. In the meantime, he is literally forcing the musbros to accept twenty jets and 200 tanks with which to destroy Israel and eventually attack us. Now I understand.
NYC announced today that it is on track for 100 subway deaths this year. Given the gun control advocates´ logic, shouldn´t we be demanding "subway control" (along with knives, fists and clubs)? After all, that is almost four times the death toll from Sandy Hook.
The sad fact is that slave owners denied slaves their second amendment rights because they KNEW that an armed man could easily become a freed man, so there is another racist aspect of the demonrats´ obsession with gun control. Wake up, Black America, and quit voting for these people who continually thumb their noses at you.
Let´s see... The Founders wanted citizens to be armed to prevent tyranny by a federal government gone wild. Now a federal government gone wild wants to ban the weapons the citizens would use (military style weapons). Hmmm... I know I´m not that smart but even I can figure this out. There´s a reason they don´t care about handguns in Chicago.
There is no question that Dems are more proficient than GOP in manipulating numbers. They wail about all the "children" killed by guns, thoughtfully leaving out the fact that they count anyone up to age 19 as a child. And that the vast majority of victims are bigger than the police who work the case, are black or Hispanic , own the guns illegally, and were killed by other black or Hispanic thugs. We need to hire and listen to some really good PR people of our own!
I have been called the most vile names on Twitter and other websites for saying what I know to be true ... That the Democrats are the Real Racists and cover it up by pointing the finger at the Republicans. I don´t care what they call me. I know what I know. The Democrats are the most Racist of Racist and they cover it up, (aided by a corrupt media)by claiming that Republicans are the racists. But look at their records of minority Governors and other representatives. The proof is in the pudding. If only the media was!
Following his lengthy interview with President Obama, Chris Matthews attacked his GOP opponents as less patriotic than Nelson Mandela‘s opponents. Mark Levin took Matthews to the woodshed on Friday for this rather strenuous comparison. Levin said at the outset that Matthews is most assuredly “off his rocker,” and took a shot at the “conga line of freaks” at MSNBC before playing the audio of Matthews attacking Obama’s opponents. Levin called him “one sick S.O.B.” and a “little puke” for having the gall to attack any critics of the president when he and his “left-wing kooks” did everything in their power to
The White House on Friday criticized as inaccurate a report in POLITICO Magazine claiming that President Barack Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius met just once since the signing of the Affordable Care Act more than three years ago. “The published report that was written by an advocate is based on a ridiculously false premise,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said during a press briefing. “Cabinet secretaries don’t regularly get entered into the White House visitors logs, [though] they come frequently. Kathleen Sebelius comes frequently, and she meets frequently with the president.”
PACHUCA, Mexico — Federal police blocked access Friday to a central Mexico hospital where six people were reported to have been admitted with radiation exposure. An official familiar with the case confirmed Mexican media reports that the six have been admitted to the general hospital in the city of Pachuca and may have been exposed to a stolen source of cobalt-60. The official, who spoke Friday on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to speak to the media, said only one person was dizzy and vomiting, which are symptoms of radiation poisoning.
One of the patients featured in the TIME cover story I wrote last March--"Bitter Pill: Why Medical Bills Are Killing Us"--was Emilia Gilbert, a school-bus driver. Gilbert was 61 years old in 2008 when she slipped and fell one evening in her backyard in Fairfield, Conn. She was taken to the emergency room at Bridgeport Hospital, where she was treated for some cuts and a broken nose. She left a few hours later with a bill for $9,418, which included $6,538 for CT scans and $239 for a routine blood test. The charges, I found, were based on something called
Fox News Channel host Geraldo Rivera and the hosts of Fox & Friends openly mocked MSNBC and host Chris Matthews on Friday for his performance during an exclusive interview with President Barack Obama. Rivera called Matthews a “fan” of the president and the hosts dismissed the network as a place that does not specialize in “objective” analysis. Rivera reacted to Matthews’ interview of the president by saying that he has worked with the MSNBC host in the past and likes him personally. “But to pretend that Chris is a journalist, per se, I think that’s sort of artificial,” Rivera observed. “He’s a
For almost a decade now, Chris Matthews has served as a barometer for baby-boom progressives´ attitude toward Barack Obama -- from the "thrill" that went up his leg when he heard the presidential candidate speak in 2008 to the utter disappointment following last October´s debate in Denver. That´s why Matthews´ interview with Obama, which takes place at 2 p.m. today and airs at 7 p.m. on MSNBC, is a crucial one for the president, and for MSNBC. For Obama: The last time the MSNBC vet interviewed Obama, at West Chester University in 2008, it was a love-in, the "thrill" having traveled up
After the 2012 presidential election failed to go their way, Republicans were reminded ad nauseam that Barack Obama had built a winning collection of supporters and that the GOP had not. The Democratic coalition, insisted partisans both inside and outside the media, spelled potential death for the GOP and for the conservative ideology that generally underpins it. The Republican party was just too old, too white, and too male — three terrible things to be, naturally — and it was destined to be buried by demographics. As the year came to a close, and everyone tried his hand at a
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
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.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
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
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
