Rape, Knock-Out King and Gun Control.
This time You People are gonna’ learn. Your betters have tolerated your quaint old-fashioned attitudes for longer than you deserve. But now they’ve grown tired of the (expletive)-dance. The Brilliant and Morally Superior Charles Blow tells you how serious serious can get in today’s NYT.
“The White House is weighing a far broader and more comprehensive approach to curbing the nation’s gun violence than simply reinstating an expired ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition, according to multiple people involved in the administration’s discussions.” According to The Post’s sources, this could include measures “that would require universal background checks for firearm buyers, track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database, strengthen mental health checks, and stiffen penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors.”
This is obviously happening because Big Brother loves you. They want to protect you. This is because our government demands safe streets. It’s because, unlike evil gun makers, they care about the children.

The CIA is Not Your Dog. Do Not Wag It.
How badly has this healthcare plan debate gone for the Obama Amatueristration? So badly that they had to start making noises about arresting Dick Cheney. Well, they haven’t sunk far enough down in the polls to go that far, but they all of a sudden decided that NOW! Was the perfect time to take up the issue of CIA interrogations of suspected terrorists. CNN describes the coming witch-hunt.
Attorney General Eric Holder has asked federal prosecutor John Durham to examine whether CIA interrogations of suspected terrorists were illegal, the Justice Department announced Monday.
The move came as senior administration officials said President Obama had OK’d a special interrogation unit to be housed within the FBI, and as a redacted CIA inspector general’s report on interrogation methods was made public for the first time.
