Columnist to gun owners: Next time, just
let your friendly neighborhood burglar in

Hot Air, by Ed Morrissey

Is this satire, or can an English major at the University of Florida really be this clueless? I’m … torn. Dallin Kelson says the lesson of the woman who barricaded herself and her children in the attic and then shot an intruder five times when he approached them isn’t that a handgun provides effective self-defense, or that higher-capacity magazines actually have a purpose. It’s that the problem started when the woman didn’t welcome the burglar in the first place: There’s an important aspect of this story

Fool! I do not open my door if I am not expecting anyone..to open the door would make it very easy for a bad guy to force his way in.
It is MY house, I don´t have to open the door if I don´t want to.

This is satire. I´m surprised so many folks at the original site´s comments missed it. And that Ed missed it.

However, it does accurately reflect the view of many on the Left.

The left will justify anything to make their point. For example, Whoppie Goldberg resently set a new standard for rape with this comment in regards to Roman Polanski: It Wasn´t ´Rape-Rape´. Seriously, how do you argue with that????

Or, just try to state/imply the President´s new cabin is too white or too male...ESPECIALLY ON CNN! Whoa, to do so makes YOU A RACIST!

Okay, I´m going with satire. Those last two lines seem a bit clumsy but they could be an indictment against government interfering where it does not belong.

Sometimes it is easier to ask someone just what the hell they think they’re doing rather than wait for them to do it.

I´m going with the "they really are that stupid" tack and guessing this is not satire. Those throwaways about "selling crowbars" and "in the name of the proletariat" I see as feeble attempts to show that he is not a leftist moonbat, just an ordinary reasonable guy ( "see, I make fun of everyone--but seriously, why didn´t she just answer the door?). Either way, he´s pretty stupid.

Had a housemate once who always left the door open because his view was that he couldn´t think of anything in the house that he wasn´t willing to share. Half the housemates were women. We were to be exposed to danger so he would not have to accept that his principles were foolish and needed a deep re-think.

The ACA: Still Falling Short
National Review Online, by James C. Capretta    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/1/2014 5:24:37 PM     Post Reply
The Obamacare open-enrollment season (supposedly) closed yesterday, so it is good time to step back and assess where things stand with the law and its first-year implementation. Interestingly, Obamacare remains something of a Rorschach test for journalists and health-policy analysts. Looking at the same set of facts, two observers can reach very different conclusions. For instance, Noam Levey of the Los Angeles Times writes that Obamacare “has spurred the largest expansion in health coverage in America in half a century.” Meanwhile, health consultant Howard J. Peterson, writing at the Philadelphia Inquirer news site, says “the first four years of Obamacare has led to

Obamacare Takes a Life

Posted By: StormCnter- 4/1/2014 5:20:41 PM     Post Reply
Yesterday the Obama Administration boasted that six million people had signed up for Obamacare. There was not a word about Frank Alfisi. Frank Alfisi was killed by Obamacare. His daughter, Amy DiFrancesca, is furious. And yes, she quite specifically blames the President of the United States for her father’s death. As did the doctor who told Amy: “You can thank Mr. Obama for this.” Before we get to the specifics of how Frank Alfisi died, let’s begin with the who of this story. Mr. Alfisi was not a statistic. He wasn’t a guinea pig or a lab rat. Frank Alfisi was a real person.

I never wanted my father to open the sandwich shop. Visions of spending my afternoons preparing, cooking and serving food swirled in my mind when my father first mentioned the idea, and I didn´t want any part of it. I just wanted to come home after school, relax a bit then do homework just like other seventh-grade girls. Since our family had arrived in the U.S. a year earlier, in 1984, my father had tried hard to look for work. He was almost 60 and spoke little English, and he was turned down for a series of jobs.

House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan released his annual budget blueprint on Tuesday morning, and it looks like a fairly familiar iteration of a lot of the deficit-reducing measures we’ve seen in his past proposals. (Snip)But of course, the mere mention of such a vastly more sustainable long-term fiscal plan almost immediately inspired Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to launch into yet another of his unhinged Koch-addled rants that seem to be dominating his floor speeches lately, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Last month, Amrit Singh, an adjunct professor at Hostos Community College in the South Bronx, received a letter from the New York City Marshal, advising him that he owed $10,000, due within 20 days. If Singh did not pay, the letter said, money would be garnished from his paycheck. “It got me worried, because I knew I didn’t owe this amount of money,” Singh said. Singh called the Marshal’s office, and they told him Atlantic Credit, a debt collection agency, secured a judgment against him for the $10,000. Singh had never heard of Atlantic Credit and had no contact with

GOP´s 2016 Hopefuls

Presidential campaigns are long and complicated, and getting more so, but they all start in the same way: Hopefuls jockey for position in a handful of lanes that open up for specific types of candidates their party seems willing to consider. That is precisely what is happening now as Republicans begin serious contemplation of the 2016 presidential race. The party is changing and soul-searching after two straight presidential defeats, and its coming nominating contest may well be the most crowded and wide-open in a generation. To sort through that forming crowd, think of the potential candidates as falling into five different lanes.

When it comes to mocking a sitting president, the world’s most dangerous leaders have apparently taken up the traditional role played by late-night comics. It started last August when the 11-year-old son of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad took to Facebook with this message for President Obama: “I just want them to attack sooo much, because I want them to make the mistake of beginning something that they don’t know the end of it.” A few days later, Papa Assad tells Charlie Rose that Obama runs a “social media administration.” Next came Vladimir Putin. It wasn’t enough to annex Crimea. In an address to

President Obama´s endorsement on Monday of Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) in a Democratic primary is a big deal. Until now, Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-Hawaii) sported the most notable endorsement in the race: That of late senator Daniel Inouye (D), whose dying wish was for her to succeed him. But if there´s one endorsement that could carry as much or more weight in what promises to be a contentious campaign, it´s Obama´s. The broad unpopularity that has has turned Obama into a political albatross in many states does not extend to Hawaii, where he grew up and enjoys iconic status. Obama

Making up good news about Obamacare

The Obama administration is celebrating that it has achieved its (downwardly revised) goal of signing up more than 6 million Americans for Obamacare by 11:59 p.m. March 31. Mission accomplished! Not quite. The administration has not revealed how many of those 6 million people have paid their premiums. If you have not paid, you have not actually “enrolled.” It’s like putting merchandise in your Amazon cart but never clicking “buy.” Besides, the number that matters is not how many Americans signed up for Obamacare but rather how many previously uninsured Americans signed up for Obamacare. By that standard, Obamacare may be

President Obama sees himself following in the footsteps of the creator of the modern Democrats, Franklin D. Roosevelt, who launched the “New Deal” in the 1930s to protect the interests of working and middle class Americans. Among numerous other programs, Roosevelt’s New Deal included Social Security for the elderly, a massive program of public works for the unemployed, subsidies for farmers and government recognition of labor unions to raise wages for private sector workers. Shortly after Obama’s 2008 election, Time ran a cover story picturing Obama as the next FDR with the title “The New New Deal.” President Obama and his

Weeks ago, Malaysian authorities said the last message from the airplane cockpit was, "All right, good night."

Israeli Minister: Pollard

JERUSALEM -- A hard-line Israeli Cabinet minister says convicted spy Jonathan Pollard opposes being freed from a U.S. jail in exchange for Palestinians prisoners. Uri Ariel says people close to Pollard have told him that he opposes such a "shameful deal." Ariel, from the hard-line Jewish Home party, spoke to Army Radio on Tuesday. He says he, too, is against the release of "murderers" for Pollard. Talk of the possibility of Pollard´s early release has arisen as an incentive in the troubled Mideast peace negotiations. The idea is that if he is freed, Israel would make concessions and release more Palestinian prisoners.

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats.

Obamacare, the plan purportedly created to provide health coverage for the uninsured, has enrolled just 1.7% of America´s 48.6 million uninsured. News of the disastrous numbers comes as nervous Democrats and President Barack Obama, ahead of the November midterm elections, did their best on Monday´s enrollment deadline to put a positive spin on the deeply unpopular Obamacare program. (Snip) The White House now claims an Obamacare enrollment figure of six million people. However, according to The New York Times, at least 20% of those never paid their premiums to activate coverage, leaving them uninsured.

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in

A RAND study pours buckets of cold water on the Obama administration’s claims that it has nearly reached 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. The whole point of Obamacare, supposedly, was to insure the uninsured and bend the cost curve down. Those who had insurance were supposed to be able to keep it. Families were supposed to start saving about $2500 a year. If you believed the Obama administration. Reality, according to RAND‘s study, is that the Obama administration’s 7 million figure is deceptive. Supposing 7 million have actually signed up and paid their first premium — which is not a given,
