The nation’s staunchest defender of the Second Amendment has told gun activists in Texas who insist on carrying assault-style rifles in public places to knock it off.
In a statement issued late last week, the National Rifle Association (NRA) called out so-called “open carry” groups in Texas that have been frightening restaurant customers and motorists by approaching them while carrying AK-47s and AR-15s.
The NRA applauded Texas for a “robust gun culture,” but noted that a number of activists had “crossed the line from enthusiasm to downright foolishness.”
Yes it's true, tens of millions of Teabaggers are going to magically appear in DC today and take over the government by camping out and demonstrating. You know, like #Occupy but with old fat nutjob armed Teabaggers riding their Rascal scooters around and waving their misspelled, racist signs.
ADMIN EDIT - taken off the front page for inappropriate post, but kept up as an example of what is wrong.
Finally it is being proven that this is the culture and when I was volunteering at the VA in Ann Arbor this was the norm and not the exception.
I believe the Dept of Veterans Affairs needs to be completely dismantled. A completely new entity needs to be constructed as the current one is so badly broken it is beyond repair.
There is a recording purported to be the voice of Donald Sterling telling his girl friend, [Sterling is married, just not to this very young woman], ordering her, among other things, not to bring African-Americans to "my games." His girl friend is reported to be half African-American and half Mexican.
First of all, let me make it clear that Jeb Bush is NOT the person I want to be POTUS. I want a mainstream Democrat to win the 2016 election. I just believe that too many strongly ideological conservatives are blinded to any candidates other than the Rick Santorum/Ted Cruz/Rand Paul/Sarah Palin types. BTW -- This is NOT meant to be an exclusive nor exhaustive list of candidates "acceptable" to the right-wingers. But it seems as though, Republicans who see some value in compromise on some issues have no chance at all of winning the Republican nomination for POTUS.
Yet another Birtherism post on the front page by yet another right-wing nutjob. Who else is sick of this racism and irrational, idiotic, right wing crap?
Senate Democrats Introduce Tax Cut Bill for Workers
"Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray, D-Wash., and two other prominent Senate Democrats introduced legislation Wednesday to update the Tax Code to help workers and families keep more of what they earn, but also double the penalty on tax preparers who do not follow the Internal Revenue Service’s due diligence requirements for claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit."
What's the definition of insanity again?
Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
Dear "Fiscally Conservative" "Republicans" on SB: Please tell me how the taxpayer dollars spent by the House GOP in pursuit of their futile goal have NOT been wasted and are in fact completely justified.
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.
The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., founder of Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, KS, has died at age 84.
The Westboro Baptist Church is known for protesting military funerals and other sensitive situations while holding signs with anti-gay sentiments, such as "God Hate Fags" and "Thank God for 9/11."
According to the church's website, godhatesfags.com, Phelps and his followers mission is to show Americans their transgressions and abominations.
Barack Obama is president, Michelle Obama is the First Lady and "12 Years a Slave" won the Oscar for Best Picture. Isn't this a great country?
If the Grammy Awards represent the best in musical entertainment, then the recording industry has hit (pardon the pun) rock bottom. Here's my summarized review of the show:
At any point during the festivities, was the host speaking English?
Did the country music kid who played the piano and sang some song about being invisible ever actually hit a note found on any known scale?
Beyonce should appreciate the fact that since she's black, undulating around your husband isn't considered "twerking." (I guess it's one of those double standards.)
Did I hear it wrong or did the lyrics of the new Paul McCartney song include "O-U-T spells out"? (Made me yearn for a Yoko Ono performance.)
On a positive note, I was glad to see that the Star Wars Stormtroopers have taken up a career in music. (Album of the Year--impressive!)
Once again, CNN shows how relevant it really is by not only getting its story wrong, but by getting the hopes of a hard working store owner up. Do you really think CNN would make good with its huge mistake? Nah....
Apparently St. Louis is where this particular crime started. It has now spread nationally:
The national media's message to these thugs is as follows (IMHO): "Keep on keeping on boys, we will protect you. We are experienced at protecting the low lifes in the country. Our motto, after all, is long live 'Separation of God and the mainstream media.'"
Already started on the roads to D.C. Events held this weekend. Wonder if the lamestream media will cover more than 60 seconds of it (??)
Of course, the un-thinkable might happen. BO could always don a Park Ranger uniform and try to stop them.
Both political parties in this country are playing games with the American public. They feud and fuss with each other for public consumption, to try to make us believe they have real differences. They are both the same, controlled by corporate contributions. The Democrats and the Republicans are supported by the same interests whose only interest is in dividing the American people so they can keep their own power. If the public would unite for the common purpose we could topple the powers that are controlling the political process.
Been doing a little arithmetic and found some shocking statistics. As of January 1, 2013, the population of the United States was 316,809,000. The defense spending of this country, approved by Congress, is $638 billion. The SNAP, food stamp, spending is $78 billion. That equals out to $2,013 dollars for every man, woman, and child for spending on defense. SNAP amounts to a spending of $246.21 for every man, woman, and child. The amount being spent for defense outweighs the spending for SNAP by a nearly 9 to 1 ratio.
Ever wonder how all this Socialism and mandate stuff with Obamacare got started? What ever gave Obama the idea he could force you to buy insurance? What makes him think he has the right to subsidize poor people’s insurance with your tax dollars? What Socialist model did he get all these oppressive ideas from?
