Charles Vacca, 39, was instructing the girl on how to use an automatic Uzi on Monday when the girl, who was accompanied by her parents, pulled the trigger and then lost control of the weapon, the Mohave County […]
It’s tough being a criminal, especially when like this team of would-be thieves in Houston, Texas, you pick the wrong target. It turns out the clerk at this gas station, Mayura Dissanyake, is not just a convenience store clerk — he’s also an accomplished MMA fighter. Mr. Dissanyake, a five time national champion in his native […]
Roughly a year after the Supreme Court’s decision in Dist. of Columbia v. Heller ended Washington D.C.’s defacto gun ban in 2008, Tom Palmer, George Lyon, Ed Raymond & Amy McVey filed a lawsuit along with the Second Amendment Foundation in U.S. District Court claiming the District’s total ban on carrying firearms — open or […]
From Rasmussen Reports: Voters strongly believe the United States is a more divided nation these days, and they think both sides are to blame. Most are also ready to do something about it at the ballot box in November. Sixty-seven percent (67%) of Likely U.S. Voters say America is a more divided nation than it […]
In CONGRESS, July 4, 1776. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which […]
From the Wall Street Journal: The Justice Department indicted five Chinese military officers, alleging they hacked U.S. companies’ computers to steal trade secrets, a major escalation in the fight between the two superpowers over economic espionage. The indictment, unsealed Monday, marks the first time the U.S. government has publicly accused employees of a foreign power […]
By now most of you have probably heard the news, CNN is pulling the plug on “Piers Morgan Live”. I’d love to be the better man and say it was fun while it lasted and wish Mr. Morgan luck in the future. But I can’t, it wasn’t fun, it wasn’t entertaining, and it wasn’t terribly […]
About the nicest thing I can say about Super Bowl XLVIII is at least the commercials didn’t suck. The game was awful, an Al Gore speech marathon would have been more entertaining. It was the most lopsided drubbing I think I ever seen. It was ugly. It was embarrassing — the 43-8 score doesn’t begin […]
I’ve seen politicians propose all sorts of well-intentioned but ill-conceived legislation. Florida’s CS/HB 89 “Threatened Use of Force” bill is a prime example: The Florida legislature is considering expanding the state’s “stand your ground” law to encompass “threatened use of force.” Specifically, the bill is intended to shield those who brandish a gun or fire a […]
I haven’t been paying close attention to politics recently so I was a little surprised when an old post about Florida Congressman Alan Grayson started receiving a lot views recently. It got me wondering what he’d done now… What he’s done is completely jumped the credibility shark. Rep. Grayson has always been a bombastic idiot […]
One things for sure, today’s Democrats are not your fathers or grandfathers Democrats… I can’t imaging any of them arguing for tax cuts the way John F. Kennedy does during this interview with David Brinkley and Chet Huntley 50 years: Sadly I think we’re past the point were the traditional method of reducing or adjusting […]
Remember when Democrats mercilessly mocked Sarah Palin’s comments about ‘Death Panels’? Turns out she was right, at least according to Howard Dean and the more than 20 Democrats who have signed on to bills repealing the powers of the Independent Payment Advisory Board to effectively ration health care for seniors. While the IPAB isn’t a […]
This is one of those songs says more in four and half minutes than a 10,000 word editorial ever could; you either get it or you don’t… and if you don’t, I feel sorry for you.
I’ve been enjoying something of an extended hiatus from blogging. It’s not that I’ve lost interest it’s just that thanks to the policy decisions made by the nit wits in Hartford and Washington D.C. I’m working longer hours for less money and that leaves me less time to write. Anyway, since I can’t leave these […]
