9 Laws requiring
background checks for buyers of guns and ammunition, as well as
requirements that firearms be traceable, could sharply reduce gun deaths
in the United States, according to a study published on Thursday.



Another worthless study done by liberals for liberal and it isn't worth the ink it took to print it.

28 I thought that was a good debate. Not great-- all we got out of Trump was that he'll make deals, no specifics (which is par for the course). But Cruz did well, Rubio almost made me forget what a horrible traitor he is, and Kasich was kind of there, so sure. B+. Would've been nice to have smaller debates sooner, instead of the 37 or whatever all at once, but that ship's sailed and then boarded by pirates, burned, sunk, salvaged and dragged to port.

46 The casket of Taylor Force, the American tourist who was murdered in Tuesday's terrorist attack in Jaffa, was placed in Ben Gurion Airport on Friday morning.

There, a memorial service was held before the US Embassy's Deputy Chief of Mission William Grant, former MK Dov Lipman, friends, and the crowd that came to pay their respects.

Taylor Force's remains will be flown to New York and from there to his family in Texas.

A statement from Force's family read: "Please pass on our profound appreciation to the people and government of Israel for being so compassionate and considerate during the worst time in our lives. Taylor was our entire world, and knowing that Israel mourns with us is comforting."

Credit where it's due, Rubio articulated the anti-AGW position last night better than any national-levelpolitician I've heard so far.

It's a shame, really. Rubio truly is a gifted politician but (it seems to me) his penchant for career-destroying strategic blunders sets him up for disaster every time; e.g., severing his Tea Party roots to become an Establishment guy, for example. Sure, Establishment ties giveRubio access to the big money donors who really are the GOP Establishment, but look where that decision led him: tothe probable loss of his own state in a presidential primary. That's gotta sting.

49 Interesting news on gun background checks

So preventing people from having guns with which to defend themselves would reduce "gun deaths" (which we are to believe are somehow worse than other deaths). But how many of those "gun deaths" are those of the aggressor, and how many of them - if prevented - would lead to one of those lesser deaths to the victim?

And until you stop lumping in suicide and self-defense with all other "gun deaths" (which, of course, you can't because that would show the fraud you're perpetrating), I'm not particularly interested in anything your phoney-baloney statistics say.

52 U.S. to blame for global warming?

Well, in a backhanded way.

THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT 2000:
In 2000 we failed to elect Al Gore to the Presidency, as the result of a handful of butterflied-chad ballots in Florida. The devastation of that electoral defeat caused him to grow a beard, gain 120 lbs and spend 3-4 years out of the public eye, networking with Gaia scientists of all types, honing his scam of carbon credits and narrating An Inconvenient Truth. This energized the movement to where it is today. So, yeah, the whole global warming thing IS our fault.

80 Remember this when the Clinton Foundation re-reports it's "donations" ...


The most salacious corruption case of the past yearis rooted in Downstate Illinois.Dennis Hastert, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and former Congressman from the town of Plano,some 50 miles west of Chicago. Hastertwas indicted by federal prosecutors in May for structuring the withdrawal of $1.7 million dollars in violation of bank laws and for lying to the FBI. According to news reports, Hastert gave the money to a former student of Yorkville High School to compensate him for concealing Hastert's alleged misconduct decades ago when Hastert was a teacher and coach atthe school. Hastert was convicted in October when he pleaded guilty to a felony count of evading bank reporting laws in a hush-money scheme. Heis now awaiting sentencing.


Hastert didn't steal this money. He merely didn't want it reported.

81 So Dr. Ben flips to bird one last glorious time to Cruz. Color me unsurprised. He'll make a great Surgeon General in Vladimir Trump's imperial presidency.

Yeah, I'm officially in the #NeverTrump camp, even if that means The Witch (hint: I live in MA, my vote for President is essentially useless). I won't go so far as to endorse Kitty Softpaws' oft-repeated "con-man" rhetoric, but more Ace's "salesman" line. I work with lots of "mini-Trumps" in my business (software). They will say literally anything to get a customer to sign the PO and then toss the problems to guys like me who work in post-sales to clean-up and reconcile all those beautiful platitudes with reality.

Trump seems to "fight" for anything that is popular and #winning and, like any good salesman, immediately jettisons anything that is unpopular or not#winning. Path of least resistance to close a sale, no depth, no core. In his heart he's still a NYC Lib looking to close a sale with people outside of his traditional base. That's somewhat to his credit, and he's obviously a Tier-1, top-shelf sales machine.

But what happens the day after the election? Yeah, that's what I can't get past.

I could vote for Cruz but won't get the opportunity. Trump could salve that wound by nominating him to the SCOTUS, but I don't think he would. I could perhaps even support Kasich if for no other reason than he might be perhaps reasonably competent in running Big State, unlike the last Republican Governor we elected President. But again, not that my vote in the PR of MA matters at all, I simply can't pull the trigger on the other two. I suppose I'll make a vanity vote for the hapless Constitution Party nominee nobody ever heard of, then swim out past the breakers, watch the world die.

"Salesmen"...

"They will say literally anything to get a customer to sign the PO and then toss the problems to guys like me who work in post-sales to clean-up and reconcile all those beautiful platitudes with reality."


What salesmen do is get the business, so that you at least have a chance at solving the problems. Without them, you wouldn't have a job.

When it comes to government, the president is the Salesman in Chief. He's the one that has to go out and sell the vision to the country, so that everyone gets behind him and something gets done. Without the sale, nothing changes and the status quo continues.

Because a lot of times, they don't have the $40 or so to buy the big box. They buy the package they can afford at the time.

Plus, they're probably buying formula at the same time, which is incredibly expensive.

Michael Yon, who IMO really is off the rails in general......but he was absolutely right about WW.

Lots of nastiness at WW over and above the financials as well. A few years back they cut public ties with firearms manufacturers who made big contributions and sponsored a lot of WW events, because guns are icky and vets are all suicidal PTSD-ridden victims. Disgraceful, especially since if I remember correctly they kept the gun companies' money, they just didn't want any public affiliation.

That one seems easy to me (single parent w/4 children). Low-income people do not have the disposable income to buy the bulk items. So, even if you are paying more in total, you only have $10 to spend and don't have the $50. Another problem is that in the olden days, EBT would not pay for any hygiene (tampons, pads, diapers, laundry detergent, dish detergent, toilet paper, etc) products. Don't know the rules now.

161 Hillary's email adventure (continued) ...


We don't know if "the tech guy" had more than just words.

It is possible that he had a backup of her emails, which would require immunity due to the classified nature of some of the emails. If there is a backup, the lines of investigation open up to additional violations of the Federal Records Act, handling of classified information and possible "quid pro quo" deals using the Clinton Foundation to launder the proceeds.


The other odd item in this regard is the extradiction of Guccifer (real name Marcel Lazar Lehel), a Romanian hacker, to the US.
Guccifer is the guy who revealed Hillary's private email server.

On March 20, 2013, USA Today reported that Guccifer had successfully hacked the e-mail account of former aide to president Bill Clinton, Sidney Blumenthal.

166 117 That makes no sense - why would they pay more,
except if they were not bargain-shopping? And if that's the case, whose
fault is that?

Also, do *they* really pay that, or is that partly subsidized by entitlements like Welfare, food stamps and WIC?




Posted by: Lizzy at March 11, 2016 09:41 AM (NOIQH)

The same things that cause low income people to be low income cause them to make inappropriate decisions of purchasing items. They are lazy and have little education. And yes, where they don't actually sell their welfare cards and food stamps for cash and Thunderbird they use them to buy stuff like diapers.


And it would not surprise me to find out that they are not actually paying those higher prices. They are chalking it up as payment but splitting the added cost with the seller.

171 All sides have treated their political opponents as hate objects. In the end someone will be selected and they will do stuff you mostly disagree with. This has been going on for over 200 years. If anyone agrees that voting does anything then I will state that the vote of the nominal LIV voters will elect the next president of the US of A. Politicians know this and that is why politicians seem so irrational. Trump and Cruz are competent National politicians. Rubio and Jeb aren't. W was a competent National politician. The luck component to getting elected is similar to the luck component in poker.

Nah, I don't think I could agree with your premise. Drudge using it isn't proof it's a turnoff for voters. More likely is, Drudge is using it to otherize Cruz, just like they did Palin and Romney. Icky country woman. Icky Mormon. Icky Christian.

Set up the groups, imply all the smart kids are in the other group and your job is done.

Cruz isn't "doing" anything, other than being himself. If we've gotten to the point where Christianity is so disgusting to America, well, I guess I don't know what to think anymore.

239 The left has put Christianity right along side being white, male and straight. It's pure evil in their book and must be eliminated.
Posted by: TheQuietMan at March 11, 2016 10:10 AM (493sH)


It's the privilege thing. Along with being healthy, young, and not hideously deformed. So while the evil is at times, implied, the genius of this approach is that you can discuss the badwrong of being any/all of the privilege catagories, either from the perspective of how you are a victim of the privileged, or how you, as a member of the privilege class, recognize your privilege!


So the evil only comes in after you REFUSE to renounce your leg up on everyone else.


You have to admire the cleverness of this approach, because NONE of these people have to declare you evil (although some/many do).

I've read all the articles, watched the news and listened to Carson's endorsement and the questions afterward, but not one mention of the biggest foreign policy event in decades.

In case everyone missed it, Trump floated the idea of charging all the other countries in the world for the protection of our military.

This is fundamental. Hundreds of billions in the balance. Bigger than anything that any presidential candidate has ever proposed.

But not a word about it.

If you find yourself moving your lips while reading, you can speed that up rather easily, and then keep pace.
Simply blow a small amount of air between your lips and quickly move your index finger up and down over them.

Of course, your reading comprehension will suffer some, but that doesn't stop the rest of us.

262 The socialist Euro countries really should have to pay for their own defense. Frankly though, they should have their own. I don't particularly like the idea of treating our military like a pack of mercs.

I can't imagine anyone in a country the U.S. has been protecting for decades not feeling like they owe for the service.

When confronted with the option of either sending their own sons and financing a serious military from scratch or making a "reasonable contribution" to the U.S., the answer is obvious.

270 Trump's not really wrong, exactly, but IMO letting, say, Japan be an American protectorate and major trading partner is absolutely win-win.

I don't generally like the "global policeman" role, and there's a lot of nuance to argue about, but keeping shipping lanes free of pirates is a big deal.

Well... (blushing if I could), there's the Blog Heap o'Links (nic link)..

It's got three columns, just like Drudge, but isn't as clever with juxtaposed headlines, or as clean-lined. More colorful, though.

Also, it's a personal, and eclectic, selection of links; doesn't cover all the major stories... but does link to Vic's news, Political Hat News of the Week, Maggie's Farm's links, Gates of Vienna news links... and probably ought to start including MisHum's headlines.

281 Wow. That Reuters article about gun laws had lots of weasel (ha ha) words in it. Such as "could reduce mortality" and "could reduce homicides" in relation to background checks for purchases of guns and ammunition. So it was Boston University researchers publishing in a freakin' medical journal based in the UK. It would be interesting to see the study design and just how they researched such a thing.

Anybody watching House of Cards? The Underwoods are going hot and heavy after gun control. On the episode we watched last night, Frank said in a speech that his SS guy Meacham was killed by an illegally obtained gun, so we need to extend background checks. Um, what? How do you do a background check on an illegal purchase? Are people really this stupid?
