Comments on Recent Supreme Court Actions
There are four things of interest to come out of the Supreme Court the past few days. Obviously, the first one is the decision allegedly striking down affirmative action in Michigan. It should be mentioned straight up and foremost that the decision did nothing of the sort. The Court upheld the right of the people of Michigan to pass a state constitutional civil rights amendment which prohibited discrimination | Read More »
The Misogyny of John Paul Stevens
Numerous authors and diarists on this site have pointed out the abject hypocrisy of the “War on Women” trope that played no small part in re-electing President Obama to a second term in the White House, noting that the Left is an all-too-frequent perpetrator of its own War on Women. However, a week and a half ago – just shy of the anniversary of the original | Read More »

The Rich Man and Lazarus’s Big Gulp
It is always sad when you realize someone is on the road to hell. There is a sense of foreboding in it. For Christians, we should be fearfully in prayer for others — even our enemies as the Lord tells us. There is no better time than Holy Week to be reminded of that. A great case in point is Mayor Mike Bloomberg. He is | Read More »

RI State Senator says “go f**k yourself” in response to question
Just happened to find this posted on twitter and found it interesting. The guy’s name is Dan Bidondi who has a radio show called TruthRadioShow. The left whenever you get in their faces about gun control really get pissed off. I guess tyrants always do when you ask them legitimate questions like this. In this case, Bidondi asks a RI State Senator by name of | Read More »
Dr. Carson’s prescription for gun control
Dr. Ben Carson came in third on the CPAC straw poll for president, making him the not-Paul not-Cruz winner. Not to sound flippant, but that’s a significant position, since the top two spots were pretty much pre-ordained. Run through a mental list of all the folks Dr. Carson beat out for that bronze medal, and you can see why it matters, even if you don’t | Read More »
The Washington Times twists the knife on the Connecticut gun registration law.
They had to set it up, though. First, the Washington Times hammered the Connecticut legislature for passing a law that maybe three hundred thousand gun owners are deliberately flouting. Then they noted that Connecticut doesn’t have the resources for putting all those people in jail. After that, and gently hinting that the recent problem that we’re having with over-militarized cops is not exactly compatible with | Read More »
Connecticut to gun owners: hey, did you *try* to register? …SUCKERS!
Well, isn’t this just a fine how-do-you-do: After tens of thousands of defiant gun owners in Connecticut chose not to register their semi-automatic rifles to comply with a hastily-passed gun control law, the state is now taking some action. Officials are reportedly notifying gun owners who submitted late applications that they have one last chance to get rid of their “illegal” weapons. State officials did | Read More »
Piers Morgan is fired (finally)
Well Piers has been given the ax finally due to horrible ratings. I doubt anybody will be missing him. He’s a (words I can only use on twitter) and about time he’d get punished. He was always a horrible debater against really anybody who went up to. We don’t have cable or satellite so I don’t watch CNN. Though even we did I wouldn’t be | Read More »
My #NextPiersMorganJob And #PiersMorganReplacements Tweets
Consider this a palate cleanser. I normally don’t go on twitter just to tweet nonsense, but the news of Piers Morgan’s Primetime Departure and two great hashtags had my creative juices flowing. Enjoy: #NextPiersMorganJob: Joins some third-rate cable start-up, then quickly burns that show, and finally gets a show on @FOXSports1. #tcot #p2— BigGator5 (@BigGator5) February 24, 2014 #NextPiersMorganJob: Starts a restaurant in #Chicago, #Illinois. | Read More »
Connecticut discovering that Scary Gun control is harder than it looks.
Both Reason and Instapundit have both roundly castigated the Hartford Courant’s faintly hysterical (in all senses of the term) editorial calling for Connecticut cops to harass Connecticut gun owners into providing something better than a 15% registration rate (at best) for their Scary Evil Devil-Guns “military-style assault weapons.” Goodness knows the editorial deserved it, given that it seems to have been written by one of | Read More »
Andy Cuomo’s Dirty Laundry
Andy & Infanticide – Infants no right to life On Sept. 13 of 1984 of that year, another Governor Cuomo, Andrew’s father, Mario, famously laid out his contention that being personally opposed to abortion – the taking of innocent human life – and being a public advocate for its legality and subsequent policy accommodations was a morally sound position for a Catholic in politics.

If you like your concealed-carry permit, you can keep it
There’s a good reason people are growing nervous about the huge amount of information our government is amassing on its citizens. The strange story of John Filippidis should put a chill in the hearts of everyone concerned about protecting their Constitutional rights, especially their gun rights. Filippidis is a Floridian with a concealed-carry permit, who drove to visit family in New Jersey over the Christmas | Read More »
Mike McIntyre cuts and ru… what’s that? CAROLYN MCCARTHY (D, NY-04) is out?
Carolyn “I’m blaming my lung cancer on my father being around asbestos and not my pack-a-day habit?” McCarthy? Carolyn “I used Heath Shuler’s money-laundering-for-lobbyists scheme” McCarthy? Carolyn “PMA Porker” McCarthy? Ayup. Announced it at the same time as McIntyre. My response? “O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!” He chortled in his joy.
