Remember those punks in high school that would lie about girls that would not go out with them?

I am sure you can recall the type I am talking about. They ask the pretty girl out, she says no, so they start bragging about how they banged her in the back seat of their car, or somewhere else. Those guys were pricks in high school, and they grew up to become Democrats!

Via NH Journal:

New Hampshire Democrats were quick to attack Republican State Representative Marilinda Garcia once she made her intention to seek the her party’s nomination for the second congressional district seat official. Garcia announced her candidacy via a press release on Monday morning; she joins former Republican State Senator Gary Lambert in the race to take on Democratic Congresswoman Anne Kuster.

Within moments of her announcement, prominent Democratic State Rep. Peter Sullivan attacked Garcia on Twitter using sexist language and imagery. Sullivan compared the three-term State Representative, who holds a Master’s degree from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, to reality television celebrity Kim Kardashian. He went on to refer to her as “[Republican State Rep.] Al Baldasarro [sic] in stiletto heels” and “a lightweight.”

Throughout the 2012 and 2013 election cycles, national Democrats launched repeated attacks accusing Republicans of using rhetoric they claimed was demeaning to women.

Democrats do what they accuse Republicans of doing. And poking fun of a woman who dares to think for herself, rather than knowing her place, as Democrats prefer, is typical Democratic behavior.

Yes, it is true that Marilinda Garcia is quite pretty, and smart, and a Republican Democrats just hate that

Your Marxist Moron of the Day Russell Simmons

What an absolute genius Simmons is, I mean he is Hall of Fame stupid folks, and a useful idiot if I ever saw one. 

RUSSELL SIMMONS: OBAMACARE ALREADY SAVED THOUSANDS, POSSIBLY MILLIONS, OF LIVES 

Millions of Americans have already been forced out of their existing health care policies, a number that may skyrocket in the new year.

Russell Simmons sees it differently.

The hip-hop mogul says ObamaCare is already so successful it’s saved thousands, if not millions of lives.

Yes, we initially wanted single payer, and we had to compromise back in 2009 for the Affordable Care Act. But, it is a damn good piece of legislation that has already saved hundreds of thousands, if not millions of lives. So, let us not give up now.

Hell, why not say billions Russell? I mean if you are going to make a complete ass of yourself, REALLY go for it!

Simmons blasted the 39 house Democrats who voted in favor of tweaking ObamaCare, but he saved his harshest words for the GOP in toto.

I know where Republicans stand. They have voted 47 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act, so their stance is clear. If you get sick, you’re on your own. If you can’t pay for your medical expenses, declare bankruptcy. If you have a pre-existing condition, they’ll send you a get well card when you’re on your death-bed. Whatever President Obama stands for, they stand for the opposite. Even if it goes against every principle they have advocated for in the past, they would rather destroy our country, than see President Obama pass policy that is good for ALL Americans.

Note how he totally ignores those that have LOST insurance they had, and that they liked? Note that he ignores the fact that Obama KNEW these people, and millions more, just wait till those employer-provided plans go away too Russell. would have their policies 86ed and be forced to pay far more for coverage now. Forget that many will struggle mightily to find a way to pay those premiums. In short do not bother this idiot while he spouts nonsensical things and pretends to care about working Americans.

As for the millions who already lost their health care plan thanks to ObamaCare’s arrival, Simmons says they should simply say, “good riddance.” He simply knows better than you. Period.

And please don’t tell me this about people whose healthcare was canceled…because that healthcare is predatory and it is unconscionable that we would allow anyone in this country to own such policies.

See, Simmons does not give a flip about you losers who had policies you LIKED canceled. You were just too stupid to understand, but it is OK, Obama will help you, just ask Russell Simmons while he repeats anything his savior, Obama says, no matter how inane it is.

 

The Internet a proctologist’s dream come true

As Stacy McCain explains, so many assholes

Regular readers of this blog need no introduction to Neal Rauhauser, the disgraced former Democrat campaign consultant and associate of bomber/progressive activist Brett Kimberlin. Most recently, Bullyville has vowed to put Neal Rauhauser in prison.

Last month, Rauhauser did something so astonishingly vicious even I was shocked, despite my familiarity with Neal’s evil dishonesty. But I put it aside until today — Veteran’s Day — when I saw Rauhauser using one of his (innumerable) Twitter sockpuppet accounts to talk about his admiration for the military, the lying wretch

Everybody knows how proud I am of my children, and you know that it’s been more than two weeks since we’ve heard from our Army son, who is enduring an ordeal known as “Three Weeks in Hell.”

My wife has been praying constantly, and I’ve been trying to put it out of my mind, because there’s no point worrying about it. But exactly one month ago, on Oct. 11, this is what Neal Rauhauser did on Twitter:

Public Education is just one of the biggest problems America faces

Indoctrination is their game, not education, and if you, as a parent dare challenge them, well the gloves come off you Neo-Nazi

A Pennsylvania father objected when his daughter’s middle-school history teacher assigned a project about a New York Times article blaming Republicans for the government shutdown. His complaint apparently made him the target of an orchestrated response by faculty at Camp Hill Middle School, and an English teacher named Cydnee Cohen left a voicemail message for one of the parent’s Facebook friends:

“We’re having some problems with a parent in our school district and on his page you are one of his friends…but I would like to know, some of it seems like he is a neo-nazi…call me…”

If you are wondering what in the Blue hell is going on here is a solid explanation from Stacy McCain

What’s happening here? Well, for one thing, we have further confirmation of what every intelligent American already knew: Public schools are staffed by Democrats, who not only vote Democrat and contribute money to Democrats through their unions, but consider it their professional duty to teach children to be Democrats, too.

But what about Cohen’s tactics? What’s up with that?

What Cohen was doing is consistent with a method of consensus building known as the “Delphi technique.” Originally developed as a way of organized discussion among experts, this method has been adapted and taught to school administrators. It is used to quell criticism of school policy by isolating and marginalizing critics, while creating the appearance of consensus in support of the policy.

Here’s what happens: You, the concerned parent, raise a question about some element of the curriculum or pedagogy. You contact the teacher who will then tell you there’s nothing to worry about, and that you’re the only parent who has complained. (Isolation.)

Suppose you’re not satisfied with the teacher’s answer, so you arrange a meeting with the principal. By the time you get that meeting, the teacher has already briefed the principal, so that he has a prepared defense of whatever it is you’re complaining about. The principal’s goal for the meeting is to placate you by convincing you that you are over-reacting because, after all, you’re the only parent who has complained.

Well said, but what can we, or more directly YOU, as a parent do? Well get more parents informed. Try to get more parents involved. See if you can find a friendly media member, yes, they do exist in some markets. These thugs respond to pressure from groups of people, and they damn sure respond to media coverage that exposes them. Start a blog, contact some bloggers, call talk radio, do everything you can to bring the story to light. Remember many battles are lost without a fight, so fight!

 

Guess who supported the regulations that forced you to lose your insurance?

Here is a hint, it starts with a D, Donald Douglas has more, via CNN

At Legal Insurrection, “Senate Dems killed (Obamacare) grandfather (fix)“:

They own all of our Obamacare problems, completely. 

CNN reports, Senate Democrats supported rule that led to insurance cancellations:

Senate Democrats voted unanimously three years ago to support the Obamacare rule that is largely responsible for some of the health insurance cancellation letters that are going out.

In September 2010, Senate Republicans brought a resolution to the floor to block implementation of the grandfather rule, warning that it would result in canceled policies and violate President Barack Obama’s promise that people could keep their insurance if they liked it.

“The District of Columbia is an island surrounded by reality. Only in the District of Columbia could you get away with telling the people if you like what you have you can keep it, and then pass regulations six months later that do just the opposite and figure that people are going to ignore it. But common sense is eventually going to prevail in this town and common sense is going to have to prevail on this piece of legislation as well,” Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley said at the time. 

“The administration’s own regulations prove this is not the case. Under the grandfathering regulation, according to the White House’s own economic impact analysis, as many as 69 percent of businesses will lose their grandfathered status by 2013 and be forced to buy government-approved plans,” the Iowa Republican said.

On a party line vote, Democrats killed the resolution, which could come back to haunt vulnerable Democrats up for re-election this year.

Of course they own every Obamacare issue/problem they refused to listen to any GOP input, and recall not ONE Republican voted for this bill. And each time any Republican has said wait, let’s change this, or let’s take this out, the Democrats have shut them out. America, please remember which party gave you forced Obamacare on you next November! Bloggers, share this with everyone, spread this around, the more people are informed, the more it will hurt the Democrats, and winning the next two elections is the ONLY way we ever get Obamacare repealed and replaced with common sense reform

 

Ed Schultz thinks caller is going to criticize Obama Care, meltdown ensues

Here is the audio

A lot of people are linking this story but not so many are understanding what Schultz is actually doing. Yes, he is a rude asshole, yes he is a bombastic buffoon, we all know that. But, what upsets Schultz is that he thinks the caller might criticize Obama Care. Check the transcript out

“I just called to disagree with you about Democrats caring about veterans. I’m a retired veteran with 23 years of service and I don’t know if you know it, but 1 October, 171,000 of us were kicked off our health care. And those ‘evil Republicans,’ as you like to call them, passed a bill in June and it’s been sitting in the Senate and Reid won’t bring it up,” the 23-year veteran began.

At this point Schultz sees a likely legitimate criticism of Obama Care. And Schultz is not going to risk allowing his Left-Wing audience to hear anything negative about President Obama’s “signature legislation. So, as many Libs do, they attack, and change the subject. In this case Schultz looks to change the subject to the shutdown, which is NOT what the caller was talking about.

“First of all, you have, uh, your facts wrong,” Schultz responded, changing the subject and hollering over the caller when he tried to respond. “I’m not going to freaking argue with you, Russell. You’re full of crap, okay? You’re full of it. The government shutdown hurt the veterans. Is that wrong or right?”

“It hasn’t hurt us yet,” Russell said.

Schultz then vowed to “break your idiot argument down piece by piece!”

Schultz gives the caller almost no opportunity to speak, explain himself, or elaborate after this. Schultz freaks out because he fears the truth getting to the ears of his audience. So, Schultz attacks

The caller again reiterated that he is one of the 171,000 retired veterans who lost their benefits, a move that was supposedly intended to “reduce the cost of providing health care to military retirees.” The Democrats refuse to consider the Republican’s proposal to address the problem, he said. The vet also said he didn’t retire from the military for Obamacare.

“You have your facts wrong,” Schultz repeated, without actually explaining what facts were wrong. “You know what, you need a right-wing talker.”

And, again, Schultz goes back to the “Republicans shut down the government” defense, even though he knows what the caller is talking about is not related to the shut down at all.  The caller even says specifically he is not calling about the shutdown. All Schultz sees is the possibility his listeners might here an Obama Care horror story. In short, Schultz is willing to lie, and shut off a caller to defend Obama Care even though is hurting the very people Schultz claims to fight for.

Here is what the caller WAS actually talking about

According to a recent article by Tom Philpott, Defense officials are expected to soon announce that military retirees and their dependents that live more than 40 miles from a military treatment facility or BRAC (base closure) site will lose access to TRICARE Prime as early as next April.

This move could force as many as 171,000 retirees to shift to TRICARE Standard, which would mean an increase in out-of-pocket costs – especially those with special needs dependents or other chronic health issues.

It is important to note that active duty members and their families won’t be impacted. However, military retirees and their families are not the only ones to be hit by the move. In his article, Philpott points out that some drilling Guard and reserve members enrolled in TRICARE Reserve could also see increases in health costs.

In fairness, these cuts are not, as far as I can tell due to Obama Care

These changes have been in the works for some time. In fact, the new TRICARE support contracts were originally drafted in 2007 (during the Bush administration). These contracts were designed to reduce the cost of providing health care to military retirees by constricting Prime service areas.

Philpott reports that “Congress is not expected to block this long-standing plan to tighten access to Prime if the intent is to hold down costs.  Doing so likely would require lawmakers to find equivalent budget savings elsewhere.”

Many may find it disturbing that Defense officials delayed announcing this TRICARE change until after the election out of concern that it could be used by politicians.

The first round of Prime service changes is “tentatively” planned to go into effect in the TRICARE West region on April 1. The North and South regions will see the plan implemented by October 1, 2013.

Of course, Schultz was not going to even risk allowing a caller to tell their story if it did not match the Leftist narrative. So, apparently the Left wants to silence us even if we are NOT going to criticize Obama, or his health care fiasco. 

I guess the rules for trying to debate Schultz are pretty simple

Republicans are bad and always to blame.

Do not say anything negative about Obama Care, even if what you are talking about has nada to do with Obama Care.

Agree with Ed and the Leftist narrative or shut the Hell up!

 

Lying sack of dung with bad hair: Trying to repeal Obama Care nothing short of offensive!

Actually “Debbie Whats Her Name” offensive would be how Democrats, without ONE Republican vote, and AGAINST the expressed wishes of the American people, jammed Obama Care down our throats!

Drew –

Today, our government is shut down for one reason — because Republicans think this is their last chance to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

That is nothing short of offensive.

Thanks to Obamacare, cancer survivors like me and the 150 million other Americans with a pre-existing condition will no longer have to live in fear that our health insurance companies will drop us if we get sick.

So now is the moment to stand up for health care reform:

Show the GOP that the 47th vote to repeal or delay Obamacare won’t be any different than the 46 votes that came before.

The problem is that Republicans refuse to accept that their plan to repeal this law was rejected when they lost the last election.

Already, 47 million women have gained access to free birth control, 3 million young people have had a softer landing into the workforce by staying on their parent’s health insurance, and now millions of Americans are shopping for their own affordable health care in the exchanges.

And that’s the only reason why Republicans have shut down the government.

Thanks,

Debbie

Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Democratic National Committee

Tell you what else is offensive Debs. That millions of Americans are LOSING their health coverage BECAUSE of Obama Care. Also that many more, like me, are not sure if we can afford the HIGHER premiums for coverage we DO NOT WANT. And if we cannot afford it? Well Obama Care will fine us, how is THAT for offensive you loathsome Communist hag?

The Democrats war on kids with cancer UPDATED! Harry Reid’s Cranial Rectal issues

Video via Lonely Conservative 

Good for Dana Bash for asking the question. Reid’s answer exposes his, and his fellow Democrats rank arrogance. Talk about an insensitive response. Other people have problems too, so according to Senator Weasel Dick, kids with cancer can go without help so the Democrats can play politics, and finish forcing Obama Care on people who never wanted it.

Exit question: Is there anything Democrats will not do to gain total control of our lives?

UPDATE! Smitty notes something i should have caught at 49 seconds into the video asks this

0:49 What right do they have to pick and choose what part of government’s going to be funded?

And the Constitution says:

All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.

So if the House, which has remained oddly stuck in size since 1910, and thus may not represent the people with optimal fidelity, originates a bill, it’s kind of odd that the Dim Bulb from Vegas not know from whence that right originates.

OUCH!

Noted douche nozzle @GregFlynn wants Conservative blogger to “shut up”

Ah yes, the favorite two words Leftists use to Conservatives are shut up! Shut up or we will call you a racist, or Homophobe, or sexist, or try to ruin your good name in some other way. In this case it seems that it is shut up or I will “out” you. RS McCain has the details

North Carolina Democrats have apparently adopted the radical motto “By Any Means Necessary” in their war to destroy conservative opposition, as the intimidation tactics employed by Democrat operative Greg Flynnagainst a citizen-activist make clear:

Greg_Flynn_North_Carolina_Democrat

 

So, what has Lady liberty done to draw the ire of miscreant bullies like Flynn? Why she dared to oppose Common Core, so she must pay.

Lady Liberty is a blogger, but she is also a mother worried about herchildren. Greg Flynn (an editor at the left-wing blog BlueNC.com, aformer employee of the state department of education and a Democrat Party activist) apparently decided that identifying Lady Liberty by name would be a good way to shut her up, exposing her family to harassment from his radical Democrat allies. Every conservative in North Carolina — no, by God, every conservative in America — should be mad as hell aboutGreg Flynn‘s vicious intimidation tactics.

Lady Liberty has been a leading voice in the opposition to “Common Core” in North Carolina. You should follow her on Twitter.

Every blogger needs to speak out on her behalf.

Hell yes we do! And I think we have two choice words for the Greg Flynns of the world. When they say Shut Up, we should all answer Fuck Off! 

What is wrong with America? Leftists like Senator Feinstein UPDATED suspect did not have an AR-15

As i documented recently, she hates the First Amendment and wants the government to decide who is a “journalist”, and her hatred for the Second Amendment is just as strong

California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein is renewing her call for new gun-control laws because of Monday’s deadly Navy Yard shooting.

“When will enough be enough?” Feinstein said in a statement Monday evening.

“Congress must stop shirking its responsibility and resume a thoughtful debate on gun violence in this country,” she said. “We must do more to stop this endless loss of life.”

Lets see here. Again, Feinstein the Statist wants to politicize tragic deaths and trample the right of self-defense. Why not look at HOW the shooter at the Naval Yards had security clearance? He had an arrest record after all, and a troubled past.

Aaron Alexis, the Navy vet suspected in the killing of 12 people at Washington’s Navy Yard, had a troubled past that included two previous arrests involving shootings and a “history of misconduct” in the Navy.

Alexis, who friends described as a convert to Buddhism, was arrested in Fort Worth in 2010 after firing a gun into his neighbor’s apartment, leaving her “terrified,” according to a police report.

In addition, he was arrested in 2004 in Seattle for shooting out the tires of a construction worker’s car in an incident he later described as “an anger-fueled blackout.”

So where is Feinstein’s call for better vetting of who is given access to military bases? What of the “multiple weapons” We know he got one of them from a security guard he killed

Two federal officials told the Associated Press that Alexis had an AR-15 assault rifle, a shotgun and a handgun that he took from a police officer at the scene. The two officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss a pending investigation.

Apparently video shows him entering with ONLY a shotgun, so it would seem he got the “AR-15 after he shot the guard as well

Another interesting detail from NBC Washington, which is sadly relevant to the new national conversation on guns we’ll soon be having at the Democrats’ and the media’s urging:

Video also shows the gunman entered with a shotgun, News4′s Jackie Bensen reported. He shot the security guard and continued through the building, but according to what witnesses are telling investigators, by the time the shootings ended, the gunman was seen with a semiautomatic 9 mm pistol and an AR-15 assault rifle.

Authorities are investigating whether the gunman took the security guard’s service weapon – likely a 9 mm pistol – and hid in wait for the first responding D.C. police officers, who would be specially armed with AR-15s, then opened fire and shot one of the D.C. police officers in the legs. It’s unclear if the other officers assisting the wounded officer also were able to retrieve his AR-15.

Details could change, but no matter what the facts are vultures like Feinstein do not care about anything but exploiting this tragedy. They want us disarmed, and they are certainly not above lying.

UPDATE! FBI confirms no AR-15 used in Naval Yard shooting. Via Hot Air

The FBI confirms that the AR-15 was not used in the massacre

FBI Washington field office just confirmed gunman was NOT armed with AR15. Spokesperson says 1 shotgun and 2 pistols recovered

Weapons the shooter seemingly took from guards AT the scene of the shootings. I wonder if David Frum, or Piers Morgan, or Feinstein can tell us what law would have stopped this attack? Maybe if they started focusing LESS on banning guns, and more on real solutions, oh wait, who am I kidding here, that simply is not going to happen. More at Hot Air

Usually after a horrendous shooting, the conventional wisdom on what’s “really” to blame has congealed 24 hours later. Not this time. Alexis didn’t use an “assault weapon,” as you already know if you read Ed’s post. He used a shotgun, the weapon of choice of the vice president of the United States. He was, apparently, seriously mentally ill — paranoia, sleep disorder, hearing voices — but had been treated since at least last monthand hadn’t (yet?) had his Navy security clearance revoked on grounds of mental unfitness. Time magazine published a mini-bombshell last night about a Pentagon IG report that accused the Navy Yard of cutting corners on screening contractors who might pose a security risk (52 convicted felons received routine access), but as far as I know Alexis has never been convicted of a felony. On the contrary, his boss told Reuters that Alexis passed a background check in July after the firm re-hired him and that he had a “secret clearance” and a common access card for the Navy Yard. Presumably that explains how he got into the otherwise highly secure Naval Sea Systems Command building, which houses lots of classified information. Simply put, he had a right to be there.

If only the tragedy pimps were honest brokers who wanted to find out what happened BEFORE screaming for more gun laws they might actually do some good.

 

 

 

And you thought Al gore was nutty about Climate Change!

Meet Rep. Rush Holt, Moonbat, Leftist, Alarmist, Panic Monger, and all around moron

U.S. Senate candidate Rush Holt said his claim made Monday that “millions will die” if something isn’t done to address global warming was reality, not hyperbole.

“I think it’s no exaggeration at all to say that millions will die. And in fact there’s pretty good evidence that millions already have died because of climate change,” Holt, a congressman from central New Jersey who’s seeking the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate, said in a Star-Ledger editorial board meeting this morning.

This is what hopeless political failure looks like, people. Democrats in Texas have been losing so long that, in an insane and futile bid for relevance, they desperately seized hold of the losing side of a divisive issue. Polls show 2-to-1 support for the pro-life (Republican) position. Only evil hate-filled weirdos like Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthoodare in favor of Gosnell-style late-term abortions.

The rabid pro-abortion forces are truly beyond deranged, Donald Douglas has more

Ever feel like cussing Lindsey Graham starts whining??

Yeah, me too

Lindsey, Lindsey, Lindsey, you ignorant ass, do you really think we buy the lie that this will reduce our deficit by $890 billion? Do you really expect us to believe this result in more secure borders? And finally, Lindsey, do you think anyone respects a whiner who sells out their “Conservative” values to get votes? They do not Lindsey, no one respects weakness. So, selling out your soul for votes? Please! The folks who support this sham bill will vote Democrat no matter how much you whimper. Lindsey, you cannot out Democrat the Democrats. Conservatism sells itself, as long as we have people in the GOP who actually BELIEVE in Conservatism, which it is obvious you do not Lindsey.

Why can’t the GOP grasp that Democrats are NOT their friends?

I may be just a blogger, but it would seem I am still a few dozen IQ points sharper than the Republican party is, especially the GOP members of the Gang of Eight

Just what we need, electoral advice from a Democrat

(Politico) Sen. Robert Menendez says Republicans need to accept a pathway to citizenship in immigration reform, or they’ll never take back the White House.

Discussing the debate over border security measures in the bill, the New Jersey Democrat who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee decried efforts to create unreachable triggers on legalization.

“What I cannot support, and what I believe the community cannot support at the end of the day is that we’re going to have triggers that can never be achieved in terms of border security as an impediment to the pathway to legalization and citizenship,” Menendez said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“I would tell my Republican colleagues, both in the House and the Senate, that the road to the White House comes through a road with a pathway to legalization. Without it, there will never be a road to the White House for the Republican Party,” Menendez said.

There we have the VERY BEST reason for every Republican NOT to support amnesty. The Democrats want us to, and here is a hint Senator Rubio, it is NOT because Bob Menendez or any other Democrat longs to see a  Republican in the White House. Let me be clear, if the Democrats are giving us advice, we should do the exact opposite. When a Democrat says turn here, don’t do it. When a Democrats says support amnesty, we ought to say Hell no we won’t! The Democrats want us to fail. they want us NEVER to elect another Republican to any office. Why is this so flipping hard for the GOP to grasp?

 

54 Colorado sheriffs sue to overturn new Colorado gun control laws

Good for them!

A consortium of plaintiffs led by 54 of Colorado’s 62 elected county sheriffs filed a lawsuit in federal court against the state Friday in an effort to overturn two new gun control bills that are set to go into effect on July 1.

The plaintiffs have in their sights one law that effectively bans all firearm magazines, and one that requires a background check for every gun transfer when the gun will be in the possession of someone other than the owner for more than 72 hours.

El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa said the laws are not only unconstitutional, but also confusing and unenforceable.

For example, the ban on magazines was discussed by its Democratic sponsors as applying only to those that hold more than 15 rounds, in response to mass-shooting incidents in Aurora, Colo., and Newtown, Conn.

But the law also outlaws any magazine that can be easily converted to hold more than 15 rounds, which applies to practically all magazines with a removable base plate that can be replaced with an after-market extender.

After July 1, the owners of such magazines cannot sell them, loan them or give them away. In effect, it means that even if they give their weapon to someone else for safekeeping — or, in the case of one wheelchair-bound plaintiff who spoke Friday, to hold momentarily as he gets in and out of his chair — they will be breaking the law.

This is a major issue with so many pieces of legislation, the devil of details are in the fine print, or in the poorly written wording. What a bill says it does, and what it can be twisted to do are entirely different.

 

Senator Pat Toomey is your Gutless Republican of the Day!

Trying to sell us out over “background checks”, and giving the Left EXACTLY what they want. What a damned fool

After Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Pat Toomey (R-PA) held a presser putting forth their background check “compromise” this morning, it was gun shows and internet gun sales are in their crosshairs.

The “compromise” consists of closing the so-called “gun show loophole”–something that Democrats and Republican Moderates like Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) have been wanting to do for years.

This supposed “loophole” consists in the fact that some private sellers rent a table at gun shows and make secondary gun sales. In other words, they set up a table to sell their dad’s guns, or their own guns, or the guns their neighbor doesn’t want anymore. These sales require no background check because they are secondary, used gun sales. 

What Manchin and Toomey are proposing is an incremental expansion of the NICS background check system that would include these private sales too. 

This really is a slippery slope–for once the expansion of background checks starts, where will it stop?

When will the GOP figure out that by caving, they will lose? Take your love of “bi-partisanship and stick it frankly! A bad bill is a bad bill. No matter who backs it! And it amazes me, as it does Bill Quick, that some Republicans want to surrender on an issue we are winning!

Yet another example of how Democrats are the small business owners worst enemy

Warner Todd Huston has the story from, where else, Marxifornia

The State of California has one of the worst proposals of any legislature in the country this year with a new bill that would force every restaurant and food service business in the state to commission an expensive “risk assessment” test for every menu item

Such a test could cost thousands of dollars for every food item sold. This outrageous and cost prohibitive testing would certainly cause all but the biggest chain restaurants to go out of business almost instantly.

In another exercise in nanny-statism, California’s State Senate Democrats want this “risk assessment” conducted to determine whether food being sold “contributes significantly to a significant public health epidemic.”

The bill, Senate Bill 747, is an addition to the current health and safety codes and is currently set for a hearing on April 17. It was written and introduced by Sen. Mark DeSauliner (D, Concord).

The introduction of the bill clearly says that the law would require the food service companies to pay the state for the testing in order to fill state coffers. It notes that without the assessment, the state would have the right to shut an offending restaurant down.

This bill, known as the Public Health Epidemic Protection Act of 2013, would require the department, for every product intended for consumer consumption for which it has credible evidence that the product significantly contributes to a significant public epidemic, to conduct a risk assessment evaluation to determine whether the product contributes significantly to a significant public health epidemic, as defined, and whether the adverse public health risk would have a fiscal impact on the state of $50,000,000 or more. The bill would authorize the department to charge the manufacturer of the product for the reasonable costs of producing the risk assessment and would create the Public Health Fund, to be used by the department, upon appropriation by the Legislature, to fund the program. If the department determines that the criteria are met, the bill would require the manufacturer to create, for approval of the department, a public health impact report (PHIR) containing specified information, including a list of adverse public health impacts and a mitigation plan for those impacts. The bill would authorize the department to enforce the PHIR and would authorize the department to restrict or suspend sales of the product in the state if the PHIR is insufficient or if the manufacturer is not complying with the terms of the PHIR.

Ashley Judd just raped me!

Of course, I am being dramatic, kinda like Ashley herself when she compares EVERYTHING to rape, but I do feel violated by her decision NOT to seek the Senate seat from Kentucky. I mean think of all that blogging gold that has been taken from me? Ashley Judd was not just a Tree of Low hanging Blogging Fruit, she was a grove! Now all that is gone what will I do? And what of Stacy McCain, who has just seen his dream die?

 

No more Puffy Face to mock? No months of endless lunacy as she compares everything to rape? Alas, we have been robbed:

A source close to Judd said that Secretary of State Allison Lundergan Grimes’ interest in potential race made the decision not to run easier. “The timing just wasn’t right,” said the source. …
Democratic Senate strategists have argued that Judd would be a good, if unconventional candidate, pointing to her ability to rival or even eclipse McConnell in fundraising. But McConnell’s path to victory involves savaging his opponent, and Judd’s status as an actress and celebrity would have offered him loads of ammunition.

Loads. Loads and loads. And now . . . nothing.

 

New York Governor calls gun control opponents paranoid, extremists

Your Marxist Moron of the Day

Gov. Andrew Cuomo dismissed the latest lawsuit against the state’s new gun control law, the SAFE Act, as “propaganda” that the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association is using to keep its members in line.

“I think the paralysis in Washington on this issue is sad, frankly. If this nation doesn’t get it after Newtown, Connecticut … people all across the nation are begging their government to respond,” Cuomo, a Democrat, told Susan Arbetter on “The Capitol Pressroom.”

“What the extremists do is spread fear and unrealistic theories of conspiracies and the citizenry that needs to be armed because the government is possibly tyrannical, and they need their arms to defend themselves against the tyrannical government,” Cuomo continued. This is true: at gun rallies, I’ve heard this “slippery slope” line of argument from multiple attendees. They view the right to bear arms as a kind of check against government power.

Gov. Cuomo is a fine one to be slinging mud. What he is is a thug. Really no better than the slime ball who tried to rob me years ago. If not for my being armed that night, who knows what would have happened. To me, that punk and Cuomo are two sides of the same coin. No, Gov. Cuomo will never try to rob me in an alley. But he is all too willing to rob everyone he can of their most basic human right, the right of self-defense. Of course, I am sure Cuomo would lecture me on my “needs”. Well, I am sure it is easy for a man surrounded by armed security to not see the need of  a common American to have firearms for self-defense. As far as Cuomo calling anyone who opposes his unconstitutional law extreme? Statists like Cuomo despise liberty, and Individualism and consider anyone who does not wish to be dependent on the State an extremist, so, that is a badge of honor. Oh and one more thing……….
