    My prediction for 2014

    On Gun Control, there is still ( I Think) this pesky little thing called congress that any laws (are supposed to) pass first?

    Or at we now at the point that that as well can be by-passed? :-)

    I have to have some kind of income before my old age Social Security (which will be broke by then) comes due

    By the way can someone direct me to a site showing where a gun has shot someone by itself? I can’t seem to find one

    Come on gun owners and NRA members are not one and the same.


    You could ask pretty much anyone in the media (outside of Fox) about Republican pollster and Fox News Contributor Frank Luntz and they’ll all say something to the effect of: “Ha!”Many — probably most — established journalists think he’s a fraud, more of a showman than a serious pollster. But in light of the massacre at Sandy Hook elementary, previous work of his is being cited like it’s the standard-bearer of objective truth in surveys.The survey in question looked at gun owners and their thoughts on gun control. Surprisingly or not, large majorities were in favor of some forms of gun control.The Los Angeles Times‘ James Rainey cites the five-month-old study in a column about gun-rights groups laying low after the massacre. (This, even though last year Rainey penned a separate column accusing Luntz of supplying his focus groups with “misleading information.”)Newsweek‘s Elanor Clift also cites the study in a column today pushing for President Obama to “seize the moment on gun control.” (This, even though in 2010 she wrote that Luntz’s work “can make governing very difficult.”)At ThinkProgress, Igor Volsky cites the study in a post headlined “The 5 Gun Safety Regulations That Even NRA Members Support.” (This, even though in 2009 Volsky criticized “wordsmith” Luntz’s construction of “straw man” arguments against Obamacare in at least four different posts.)Lots of new love for Luntz.

    Some teachers are not taking it anymore. Teachers (those taking these classes) must be right wing nut jobs. ;)


    CLEVELAND/SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) – School teachers in Texas and Ohio are flocking to free firearms classes in the wake of the Connecticut elementary school massacre, some vowing to protect their students with guns even at the risk of losing their jobs.


    In Texas, an $85 Concealed Handgun License (CHL) course offered at no cost to teachers filled 400 spots immediately, forcing the school to offer another class, one instructor said.

    I bet this will make a lot of folks happy. ;) Only in America.

    SS is not broke. It is the rest of Gov that is broke. By law the Treasury has to pay us first. Ron Reagan did this.so Ronny saved us.

    I have one where a dog shot his owner. They did not charge the dog by the way

    Greenburge is suing the Gov. AIG could have filed bankruptcy on that division of the company and would have stayed in business. Stockholders would have been winners and it was legal.Goldman Sacs and others, would have lost billions, we could not have that.32 X-employees worked for BHO and 18 worked for Bush.

    Current TV Staffers Blast ‘Bulls—ter’ Al Gore for Selling Out to Big Oil

    Yesterday morning, the still shell shocked staff at Current TV was called to an all hands staff meeting at its San Francisco headquarters, which was teleconferenced to their offices in LA and NYC, to meet their new bosses.

    That would be two of Al Jazeera’s top guys: Ehab Al Shihabi, executive director of international operations, and Muftah AlSuwaidan, general manager of the London bureau.

    Ominously missing was the creator of Current, the self proclaimed inventor of the Internet and savior of clean energy, Al Gore, although his partner, Joel Hyatt, stood proudly with the Al Jazeera honchos.

    “Of course Al didn’t show up,” said one high placed Current staffer. “He has no credibility.

    “He’s supposed to be the face of clean energy and just sold [the channel] to very big oil, the emir of Qatar! Current never even took big oil advertising—and Al Gore, that bulls***ter sells to the emir?”

  • Ratboy

    So they broke the law coming here why would they follow the law and get insurance once they got a drivers license? Plus they are illegal so they are trying to stay OFF the grid, why would they get a license and go ON the grid??

    Illinois Idiots!!!! any wonder why they are broke???

    Illinois House Approves Licenses For Undocumented Immigrants

    The Illinois House on Tuesday approved legislation allowing undocumented immigrants to obtain temporary driver’s licenses. The bill was passed by a vote of 65-46.

    Under the plan, drivers would get three-year licenses, called Temporary Visitor Driver’s Licenses, but would be required to take a driver’s education class and carry car insurance. Lawmakers believe there are as many as 250,000 undocumented immigrants on Illinois roads and that more than 40 percent of deadly Illinois crashes involve drivers who don’t have a license
