Background Checks

Lots of talk about “expanding” background checks for firearms purchases. Lots of reasonable people on both sides of the argument disagree what that would mean. But so far no one seems to have suggested the obvious – probably because so few in the argument have ever actually participated in what goes into buying a firearm. …

Constitution Day

Today is Constitution Day.  Why not take a moment to re-familiarize yourself with it? We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do …

The Imperial Opinion

Bahahahhahaha President Obama’s approval rating of the American public has fallen to an all-time low, according to a new Gallup survey of White House residents and employees. Fewer than one in 10 Americans earned the president’s favor, according to the president. That is down sharply from six in 10—the percentage of Americans Obama approved of …

Justice Served, Texas Style

Until recently I imagine that most of the country, much like myself, knew little or nothing about Humberto Leal Garcia, the illegal immigrant* who became a vicious rapist and murderer back in 1994.  At any given moment there are probably thousands of animals locked up in our nation’s penitentiaries for crimes similar to Humberto’s, and …

Setting the tone

Talk show hosts have nothing in the influence game when compared to the radical left. Since literally moments after the shooting in Tucson last week, the leftists have been screaming against all logic that the senseless violence committed by Jared Loughner was caused by angry political rhetoric.  Of course, it wasn’t, but that hasn’t stopped …

Tragedy in Arizona

This is what they were talking about when they coined the term ‘man-caused-disaster.’  It wasn’t an act of war.  It wasn’t the result of political extremism.  It wasn’t a racist reaction to the country’s first (half) black President.  It wasn’t a statement on illegal immigration nor Arizona’s efforts to combat same. It was one asshole …
