If injury/death is the criteria for banning a given tool, then cars should be at the very top of the list – and many rungs higher than firearms.
There was mass carnage yesterday[August 3, 2013] on the Venice Beach boardwalk near LA when a man used his high-powered automobile to run over 12 people – killing one of them and sending the remainder to the hospital.
How can Republicans win the White House in 2016? They could choose Chris Christie as their candidate.
I have to confess I have enjoyed the brief head-banging between Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey. I am New Jersey born-and-bred, having lived here with time out for college and the U.S. Army. I have traveled to most of the other states, but I was always happy to come home. I thought Sen. Paul looked like he was—no pun intended—in the wrong weight division when he got in the ring with Christie.
Rep. Cole: "I’ve always taken every opportunity to speak out against Obamacare and find ways to limit its harmful impact. However, forcing a government shutdown will negatively affect millions of hardworking Americans...."
By Congressman Tom Cole
House Republicans have jumped on every opportunity to fully repeal and change or defund the president’s healthcare law. His signature piece of legislation, President Obama’s so-called affordable plan for healthcare is already showing signs of inevitable failure, and it continues to grow less popular with each passing day. Even the Obama Administration has admitted that the law is unworkable by choosing to delay key portions of it.
So, what makes a model like the 2014 GMC Terrain different from its lower-status (and lower-priced) corporate cousin, the 2014 Chevy Equinox? Are these differences sufficient to justify having “twins” in the GM portfolio?
The GMC division of General Motors is an interesting animal in that it’s one of the small handful of “middle” brands still left on its feet. You remember middle brands: A notch above the mass-market (e.g., a Chevy) but not quite as prestigious as a top-of-the-line brand (e.g., a Cadillac).
Suffice to say, global warming is the greatest hoax of the modern era and is seriously undermined by the fact that the Earth has been in one of its natural cooling cycles for the last seventeen years at this point.
I have always found a stark contrast in the way the forecasts of meteorologists on television and radio are limited in accuracy to about a week and beyond that become more speculative while the claims about global warming are always stated in decades. For example, the polar ice caps were supposed to have all melted by now.
Hear us from heaven, Oh Lord. Forgive us our sins. Please heal our land. We declare, once again, America’s dependence upon You, King Jesus. Kyrie Eleison.
Father God, Son and Holy Spirit, Maker of heaven and earth, You are the First Cause of these United States of America. You are the Author of all that is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy.
At the end of August, Firestation should be ready to begin observations, watching for lightning on Earth, which regularly appears some 50 times a second around the globe.
An experiment to study the effects of lightning flashes on Earth's atmosphere hitched a ride to the International Space Station on Aug. 3, 2013. The Firestation experiment launched aboard a Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s transfer vehicle called Kounotori-4. Firestation will be installed robotically to the outside of the space station, a process that will take about three weeks.
Rep. Sensenbrenner: "Some states have misconstrued their authority to levy business activity taxes, which has resulted in uncertainty for small businesses and state governments alike."
By the office of Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner
Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) introduced the Business Activity Tax Simplification Act (BATSA) today[August 2, 2013], which would limit state attempts to collect taxes from out-of-state businesses and codify the physical presence standard for state taxation of business activities.
It's time to see that reliance on Government has brought us as far as it is going to. Now, we need to return to the original ideas that America was founded on.
As a CT resident I sometimes read the Hartford Courant Op-Ed when eating breakfast out. On Saturday July 27th I read a local pathologist's well lettered Op-Ed piece scorning the American interest in the new born son of Price William and Princess Kate. I share his disdain for all things Royalty. There is no genetic quality in the descendants of Monarchs that make them particularly special. They've had the privilege of inheriting wealth and status and that does not make them any more special than any other family of inherited wealth. But to each his own; if people want to faun over the Windsors then it's their choice and no skin off my nose. However, then the article's author leaps to share his regret that 18 million children in America go hungry each night. I don't know where he gets his statistics and it is not that I'm challenging their accuracy but it reminded me that some people continue to focus on symptoms and fail to understand problems.
It does not take an expert in military affairs to know that the demand to include more women in the ranks will degrade unit cohesion throughout of our fighting forces.
Wars are often unpredictable. The outcome of such conflicts is also unpredictable, but defeat in future conflicts is now being “baked into the cake” and I suspect most Americans are totally unaware of how serious this threat is. You can be sure potential and actual enemies are calculating the odds.
John Stossel thinks the Obama regime has not quite morphed the U.S. into the Roman Empire. He's wrong. In fact, the new Rome on the Potomac has exceeded the decadence of classical Rome by an order of magnitude.
Libertarian extraordinaire John Stossel asks the right questions. He doesn't always arrive at the right answers.
There are those who would pit classes or types of people against each other for political and monetary gain. Nothing could be more totalitarian, because at base, such a view denies the relevance and importance of the individual.
The Racism-Industrial-Complex is as gargantuan an industry as any that has ever existed. And it is more dangerous to life, limb, and liberty than most.
