Anti-Gun Crusade Continues by Executive Order: Continued...

"The key here is "sporting," something ATF can define as nearly anything thanks to an extremely broad and loose definition. Back in the 1990s, President Bill Clinton issued an order just like the one Feinstein is calling for. Here's a flashback from the Los Angeles Times:
" The Clinton administration on Friday imposed an immediate ban on the importation of semiautomatic assault-type weapons until the government decides whether they have been modified to skirt U.S. restrictions on foreign-made firearms that are not suitable for "sporting purposes."

Anti-Gun Crusade Continues by Executive Order: Feinstein Asks Obama to Ban Imports of Semi-Automatic Firearms

Katie Pavlich | Mar 21, 2014

'When California Senator Dianne Feinstein’s anti-gun legislation went down in flames last year, those working in the firearms industry knew she’d eventually be back with another proposal cracking down on semi-automatic rifles, or what she calls “assault weapons.”

Americans For Prosperity is struggling to find a way to attack Obamacare that fits the facts.

The Koch-funded conservative activist group is spending millions of dollars on TV ads aimed at undermining the Affordable Care Act and unseating Democratic senators who voted for it in their 2014 reelection fights.

But the ads keep falling flat upon examination of their claims.

Came across this article at henrymakow.com recently. Interesting...

http://henrymakow.com/2014/03/Could-KGB-Agent-Become-US-President.html

Caution: If you don't recognize the names "Philby, MacLean, or Blunt".... you might as well stop reading the main article at that point, because your lack of Soviet history will cause nothing but confusion. [A good starting point would be 2 books: 1) Witness by Whitaker Chambers (1950's), and 2) The Persecutor, by Sergei Kourdakov.] The book "The Persecutor" is available online in its entirety. "Witness" is available at most libraries.

Amnesty so Illegals Can Enroll in Obamacare

"Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) said on Friday that the House should pass comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship for all of the country's illegal immigrants so they could get on Obamacare.

“American citizens are essentially being forced to pay for the health care costs of people who are here illegally every day, until we pass comprehensive immigration reform,” he said. “We’re wondering why rates are going up... It’s no surprise. When somebody doesn’t have insurance, their costs are shifted onto other people that do.”

What happen to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

Well swamp bubblers what are your thoughts on flight 370. My thoughts are it was high jacked by the pilots, and landed. I think the pilot might have been training on the simulator for this possible scenario. Another question is IF the plane ascended to 45,000 feet was that an attempt to kill all the passengers?

Obama Social Security Number Fraud Case Awaits Judge’s Decision

'Back in December, Judge Ellen Lipton Hollander ruled to grant attorney Orly Taitz "an opportunity to file a second amended complaint and add allegations of SSA not doing a proper search and withholding records" in the Obama Social Security fraud case. In that report, I indicated that there should be news on that case in mid-January. However, things had not progressed as planned and part of the problem was an error by the court, which has now been corrected.'

Obama says time to give away the internet...

'The mass surveillance carried out by the U.S. National Security Agency means that governance of the internet has to be made more international and less dominated by America, the European Union's executive has declared. "Given the U.S.-centric model of internet governance currently in place, it is necessary to broker a smooth transition to a more global model while at the same time protecting the underlying values of open multi-stakeholder governance," the group stated.

this st. patrick's day--take the pledge to be more considerate of liberals

Tagged:  

On Saint Patrick’s Day this year, why not try to be a little more compassionate toward non-Christians. Just like the majority of us can feel proud that we have eliminated any reference to “Christ” around December 25, we must learn to remove any religious connotation from all occasions that have their origins in religion.

Give these things a try this March 17 in an attempt to neutralize this tradition:

Instead of saying, “How about going out for a Jigg’s dinner,” try ”Would you like to join me in a corned beef and cabbage meal that is unrelated to any specific occasion?”

Never wear green on St. Patrick’s Day. It’s like displaying a neon sign on your body that screams “I’m celebrating a Christian holiday" to the small percentage of the population who would be offended by such things. How insensitive can you be?

When your co-workers are passing around pitchers of green beer at your after-work gathering, tell them, “No thanks, I’m having the Agnostic Ale.”
