When you hear that an armed woman protects herself you need to think of all the crimes that have happened against unarmed women.
WBNS-TV carried the story:
Dinah Burns is licensed to carry a concealed gun, but she'd only recently started taking her weapon while walking her dog.
Based on what happened, it looks like she'll make a point of carrying from now on.
"I think if they'd gotten any closer, I probably would have fired,” said Burns.
It was Monday when Burns was on a footpath near Read more [...]
Amid all the other horrible news, we can’t afford to forget about the VA scandal.
The same government that punished whisteblowers for exposing how Veterans Affairs was failing out military is now displaying a new tactic—employing an investigator with a vested interest in making the VA look good.
It turns out that these hospitals, with their secret waiting lists and suffering ex-soldiers who never received a timely appointment, had in some cases been inspected. Somehow they passed these Read more [...]
It should surprise no one that Microsoft takes a stand. They are fighting for their life as a company.
I know some people who really despise Microsoft due to their use of intellectual property. They will insist the company is untrustworthy. But their opinion is based on specific knowledge that many others never bother to acquire. No matter what betrayals they have gotten away with, if any, they cannot afford to appear untrustworthy to their customer base.
The Federal Government is directly Read more [...]
The British independence party is UKIP, the United Kingdom Independence Party. Back in May they won 24 seats on the European Parliament out of 73. This is was a significant message because UKIP hates the European Union.
Now it looks like UKIP is about to win an unprecedented victory over Prime Minister David Cameron. According to the Daily Mail: “Cameron faces Ukip by-election bloodbath: Party set to win first Commons seat after shock poll reveals Farage's staggering 44-point lead over the Tories.”
Ukip Read more [...]
When thinking about the possibility of Planned Parenthood fraud, perhaps it is best to ask yourself: If someone openly promotes baby-killing, what else are they willing to do?
That doesn’t prove anything specific, of course. But it is interesting that, according to Breitbart.com, judges have ruled to allow a lawsuit go forward against Planned Parenthood.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit reinstated a case brought against Planned Parenthood of the Heartland in Iowa by one of Read more [...]
Obamacare death panels are stupid paranoia. No intelligent person believes in them.
Except that they are real.
There is still plausible deniability, I suppose, because this isn’t a direct edict from the Affordable Care Act. But that is a ruse.
The New York Times reports: “Coverage for End-of-Life Talks Gaining Ground.”
Five years after it exploded into a political conflagration over “death panels,” the issue of paying doctors to talk to patients about end-of-life care is making Read more [...]
For years we have heard about Al Gore’s disappearing ice cap. Can we please put him out to pasture now, never to be heard from again?
Yeah, global warming is settled, alright. A settled fraud, designed only to make politicians more powerful, and their crony business friends richer.
Here is the Daily Mail headline: “Myth of arctic meltdown: Stunning satellite images show summer ice cap is thicker and covers 1.7million square kilometres MORE than 2 years ago...despite Al Gore's prediction Read more [...]
As far as I know, the authorities are still calling the murderous actions of Foot Hood Shooter, Nidal Malik Hasan, “workplace violence” rather than terrorism.
I understand that he hasn’t been identified as part of a group. But so what? It might still turn out that the Tsarnaev brothers weren’t part of a larger conspiracy. Does that make the Boston Marathon bombing any less an act of terrorism? (Perhaps the fact that Hasan murdered military people and thus did not really hit a civilian Read more [...]
Movie industry Liberals act like they are such productive people, ignoring the reality of Hollywood corporate welfare. They sneer at anyone who might be described as conservative or traditionalist. They talk about their “work” as if it is some kind of hard task. They sit in judgment over “flyover country” in their own minds.
And they feed off a taxed population.
Thus, the New York Times reports:
Lawmakers and Gov. Jerry Brown of California on Wednesday said they had reached Read more [...]
I call this an Obamacare success because I can’t believe that the people who designed it were unaware of this consequence. They chose it.
We already knew that Liberals were aware of the problem because they admitted to it. They claimed that it was a good thing that we might get a shorter work week. They blamed Republicans for being harsh taskmasters, wanting us to work all the time. But their theory was that, once people no longer needed a job to get health benefits, they would be happy Read more [...]
We’re told by progressives and many public educators Christianity in the classroom is wrong--that God, specifically the Judeo-Christian God of the Bible, has no place in the classroom. Not only, they say, is this a bad idea, but it’s actually breaking the law - a violation of students’ religious liberties. Really?
I was recently invited to teach a 12-week Constitution course using a room at a local public high school in Springboro, Ohio. The class was open to the public – parents, Read more [...]
While seeing our financial elite try to scapegoat Russia, I recall a movie about forced honesty. Remember the 1997 Jim Carrey movie "Liar, Liar," where an attorney was "cursed" with the inability to lie for an entire day? I wish we could see the same thing in the actual halls of finance and political power for at least 24 hours—I bet if we could do it for a week we'd have massive popular revolutions all over the globe.
Speaking of global conflagrations, here is a JPMorgan prediction about Read more [...]
