Mark Kelly says senators voted
down gun legislation ‘out of fear’

Washington Post, by Philip Rucker

Original Article

Posted By:toledo, 4/18/2013 11:50:49 AM

Mark Kelly, the astronaut husband of former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, on Thursday upbraided senators who voted against gun legislation by saying they voted “out of fear.” ”If that vote had been a secret ballot, I bet you it would have passed with 80 votes,” Kelly told reporters. He was referencing the compromise authored by Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) to expand background checks for gun buyers. It failed to advance in the Senate, with a vote Wednesday afternoon of 54 to 46.

Except we don´t have secret ballots in the Congress in this country, Markyboy. For good reason. The Senators aren´t so secret club of rulers. They have to answer to the people and the constitution as much as they would love not to. I hope they fear us and know we have a free vote (much to the chagrin of Barry Sotero) and will vote them out if they choose to infringe on the document they have sworn to protect. So Mark... go cry on someone else´s shoulder.

Well Mark, what were they afraid of? Could it be losing their seats? Don´t you think many voters are tired of having legislation with which they disagree jammed down their throats?
None of what was proposed would have saved your wife. I know its hard to accept, but as an astronaut you of all people should know that doing something even if its wrong never helps the situation.

I suspect Mr. Kelly is a bit desperate about how to maintain his spotlight if there isn´t a gun bill under consideration. He can only trot his wife out or get her ghost-written op-eds into the NY Times if there is an emotional platform.

I almost wish they had passed the bill. There´s not much chance of it getting through the house and it would have gone a long way toward getting Reid out of the Senate Majority Leader position. Thinking of the won with an opposition majority in both the Senate and House for his last two years in office lifts my mood just a little.

Mark Kelly is a disgrace to the uniform he used to wear. Sad what a lust for power does to a person.

Where on earth do these fools get the 90%?

I´m sure that 10´s of millions of folks like me made the call to get a "friendly confirmation" from their senators that they were not going to vote to infringe on my God-given rights.

God bless Alabama

I think it´s pathetic the way they lead her around like a prop.

Does she even know who he is or where she is?

With all due respect left, perhaps so many liberals like you, Mr. Kelly, want stricter gun control .....

OUT OF FEAR.

The rest of us Americans prefer to live fearlessly with the assurance we can, and would, protect OURSELVES first, then call in the authorities to take our statement.

Period.

The End.

The Constitution and its Bill of Rights, of which the SECOND Amendment is - well - SECOND in the list for a reason. And it´s not sport-clay target practice. (Except that it helps improve OUR, um, GUN CONTROL.)

Kelly is proving to be quite the liberal drone. He is correct, there is fear. Fear of voters who will throw these Senators out in a heartbeat. Why should they fear Kelly more than their own constituients? Secret ballots? Really? Now the voters are not entitled to know how their representatives voted? I wonder how Jeff Flake feels about being insulted and patronized by this little attention starved worm.

Your opinions are distorted by tragedy and I´m sorry it happened but for the exact same reason McCain should not be president, or a senator for that matter, you should not be making any judgements either.

The fear Markie Mark is that our second amendment rights will be taken away by neo-Marxists. We convey our fears to our duly electec representatives and they vote accordingly. The fear on their part is that they won´t be re-elected if they disregard our wishes. See how that works?

Mark Kelly, like Barack Obama and like an astonishing number of Leftists and liberals, does not understand how the American system of representative democracy works. Apparently this information is no longer taught in schools and universities. We have an increasing number of citizens who lack a basic understanding of how their government is designed to work and why.

I know there are those who insist people like Barack Obama really do understand the American system but are consciously and knowingly trying to change it. I disagree. Barack Obama has made too many remarks over the years that convince me that he actually does not understand the system. He is frustrated because the system prevents him from getting everything he wants - but he does not understand that this is precisely the nature of the system of divided government and the specific intent of the framers of the Constitution. Journalists and others who complain of "gridlock" similarly fail to grasp that the whole idea of divided government was to made it difficult, not easy to enact major legislation. This is called checks and balances.

Mark Kelly, I am sorry to say, is an ignoramus. Sympathy for what he and his wife have endured can only go so far. It cannot convert an ignoramus into a sensible, informed, responsible American citizen. He is an ignoramus because he cannot grasp that the function of elected representatives is to represent those who elected them. His preposterous fantasy of a "secret ballot" would be more at home in a Leninist dictatorship of the proletariat than the American system of representative government.

Between Two Ferns and a Hard Place

Full disclosure I’m a bit of a fan of “Between Two Ferns,” which is to say it is sometimes very funny and sometimes not. That seems fitting given that it is on a site called “funny or die.” Sometimes it is funny and sometimes it dies. The same can be said of the president’s stint on the show. I think some of it is funny. Some of it is not. As for the complaint that it was unbecoming, I’m a bit torn. I don’t fret overly about the dignity of the presidency. President Clinton arguably did more to undermine the dignity of

Rand Paul’s Plan for Ukraine:

Senator Rand Paul focused his highly popular speech last week at CPAC on his constitutional objections to U.S. national-security policy. But he has broader plans for a more libertarian, non-aggressive foreign policy and he’s considered a contender for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, so he laid out what President Paul would do about the Ukraine crisis in an op-ed for Time. As Jonathan Chait points out, he doesn’t seem to have thought this out very well. President Paul would suspend its plans for this summer’s G-8 summit — which President Obama’s already done. He would urge “our European allies to leverage

I´ve had my eye on Detroit´s bankruptcy proceedings because it is indicative of what´s to come for a lot of cities. How Detroit deals with its bankruptcy could also set a precedent for other cities forced to deal with the decisions of bankruptcy, satisfying pensions and debtors.

A major Democratic donor pleaded guilty on Monday to funneling millions of dollars in illegal campaign donations to federal and local politicians, including an unnamed 2008 presidential candidate believed to be Hillary Clinton. District of Columbia businessman Jeffrey Thompson, who federal prosecutors say financed a “shadow campaign” for D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray in 2010, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to violate campaign finance laws. Thompson claimed some of the candidates, including Gray, were aware of the illegal fundraising. According to prosecutors, Thompson funded a $600,000 shadow campaign “in coordination with and in support for a federal candidate for president of the United States.” The charges

Angry over their children’s Harlem charter school getting the boot from its free public space, parents plan to file a federal lawsuit against the city, a source told the Daily News. Parents of students at Success Academy Harlem Central Middle School contend the city’s decision violates their children’s constitutional right to adequate education. The suit is expected to be filed as soon as Monday. Under the Bloomberg administration, three Success Academy charter schools were approved for co-locations with public schools for the next school year.

Russia´s oligarchs throw their weight

Posted By: toledo- 3/10/2014 12:30:21 PM     Post Reply
Vladimir Putin’s gambit that Russia could change the course of the Ukraine revolution at gunpoint has failed a crucial test as the country’s billionaire oligarchs line up behind Kiev. Billionaire businessmen have accepted appointments from the pro-Western government in Kiev to act as regional governors in three Russia-leaning areas of the country. The fledgling government has also secured the important endorsement of the country’s richest man. Sergei Taruta, a sharp-suited industrialist who was last week named governor of the Russian-speaking Donbass region, bluntly accuses Mr Putin of sending provocateurs to create chaos on the streets to provide a pretext for Russia intervention.

Days before Vladimir Putin´s troops invaded Ukraine, National Security Adviser Susan Rice dismissed suggestions that Russia was about to pounce. "It´s in nobody´s interest," she said. Days later, President Obama declared the invasion to be illegal. "In 2014," he said, "we are well beyond the days when borders can be drawn over the heads of democratic leaders." Two things strike me about those quotes. First, they were right. From the viewpoint of the United States and its allies, invading Crimea made no sense, legally or strategically. Second, it didn´t matter: Putin plays by his own set of rules, and it´s dangerously

"A full stomach — and an empty soul." That scathing synopsis of the Democrats´ pitch will be the crux of Paul Ryan´s message to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday, when the Wisconsin Republican addresses activists. Ryan´s critique, even if delivered in his usual aw-shucks style, will probably stir talk of a possible presidential bid. Politicians looking only to chair the Ways and Means Committee rarely toss out such red meat. In the speech, which the Post obtained late Wednesday, Ryan also urges Republican to craft a conservative reform agenda, and talks up the legacy of his mentor, Jack Kemp, the late

As Obama Delays Obamacare Again,
Julie Boonstra Strikes Back

Posted By: toledo- 3/5/2014 8:52:49 PM     Post Reply
As Scott noted a little while ago, the Obama administration has again pushed back the deadline for individual and small group policies to comply with Obamacare’s requirements. They are doing this, obviously, because they are trying to put off the political fallout when millions of Americans lose the coverage they had, and find that coverage under Obamacare will be more expensive and/or more limited. Which gives a special resonance to the story of Julie Boonstra. Mrs. Boonstra, as you likely recall, is a Michigan resident who suffers from leukemia. She filmed a television ad for Americans For Prosperity in which she

Public discussion on Ukraine is all about confrontation. But do we know where we are going? In my life, I have seen four wars begun with great enthusiasm and public support, all of which we did not know how to end and from three of which we withdrew unilaterally. The test of policy is how it ends, not how it begins. Far too often the Ukrainian issue is posed as a showdown: whether Ukraine joins the East or the West. But if Ukraine is to survive and thrive, it must not be either side’s outpost against the other — it should

Vladimir Putin has won. Of the most likely outcomes in Ukraine, the one most perplexing to the United States and most damaging to President Obama´s legacy is the status quo. Putin could accept Obama´s diplomatic "off ramp:" shift his troops back to their Crimea bases, permit international monitors, and open relations with the interim government. He also could escalate, pushing troops into eastern Ukraine. But he has little incentive to either pull back or push forward, because the current state of affairs favors Putin in two ways. First, his troops are deployed throughout Crimea, a boon to his expansionist domestic politics and an

In a mock online interview on the Funny Or Die website, Obama asks Galifianakis if he thinks First Lady Michelle Obama would marry a nerd: (Video) Zack Galifianakis: "You said if you had a son, you would not let him play football. What makes you think that he would want to play football? What if he was a nerd, like you?" Pres. Obama: "Do you think a woman like Michelle would marry a nerd?"

St. Petersburg, Florida- In the first major ballot box test of 2014, the GOP won. Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House. With national Republicans framing the race as a referendum on Obamacare and a massive infusion of outside ad money to try to influence the outcome, pundits have looked to the Florida race as a bellwether

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state. As for Cinque and the exchange with

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

During the all-night Senate speech about climate change, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said he drove to Hawaii as a teenager. "I just do want to say that right after I turned 17 and got my New Jersey driver´s license, one of the earliest places I drove was a trip — the only trip I have ever taken was to Hawaii," he said on the floor at about 3:00 a.m. "You didn´t drive to Hawaii," Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., said, correcting the freshman senator. Booker laughed weakly. "I did not drive to Hawaii," he admitted. "Thank you for that clarification, I

Sean Hannity introduced last night’s climate change all-nighter session in the Senate by calling it a “waste of time” for Democrats. He then invited Fox’s Bob Beckel and Greenpeace co-founder turned climate change skeptic Patrick Moore to hash it out over what Hannity called “propaganda and a hoax.” After accusing Beckel of saying everyone in the South believes “crap,” Hannity moved on to Moore, asking him “where is the evidence to suggest this is real and not a political agenda?” “There is no scientific proof that we’re causing climate change,” Moore declared, stressing that he does believe the planet is

Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.). With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott. The Democratic Party sunk extensive ad funding into the congressional battle, and DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) tried to paint the loss as a positive. “Republican special interest groups poured in millions to hold onto a Republican

WASHINGTON — President Obama this week will seek to force American businesses to pay more overtime to millions of workers, the latest move by his administration to confront corporations that have had soaring profits even as wages have stagnated. On Thursday, the president will direct the Labor Department to revamp its regulations to require overtime pay for several million additional fast-food managers, loan officers, computer technicians and others whom many businesses currently classify as “executive or professional” employees to avoid paying them overtime, according to White House officials briefed on the announcement. Mr. Obama’s decision to use his executive authority

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas) declared the U.S. Constitution to be 400 years old Wednesday on the House floor, which would mean it was signed in 1614. “Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not,” she said. That would be seven years after
