We Need More Gun Control

Police say two truckers pulled over after arguing via radio who had right of way. One was hospitalized after being hit with a hammer.

Politician To Virginia Gun Owners:

You don't need to purchase more than one handgun a month.  Regardless what the Constitution says.

Besides, the one-gun-a-month law in place has reduced crime.

How do we know?

Crime data gathered by the Bureau of Justice Statistics in the United States Department of Justice reveals ...

Because a bunch of politicians and political appointees, without a shred of evidence, said so.

Now there's a cogent argument if there ever was one.

Good News!

The Democrats here in Virginia, with diligent effort, have dwindled their numbers in the House of Delegates down to just 32.  But that ain't good enough.  They won't be satisfied until that number is a big, fat goose egg.  Thus they launch their latest campaign to hasten their inevitable extinction:

Va. Democrats push to enact part of Obama health care plan

Yup.  That should do it.

You Lost. Deal With It.

Virginia's Democrats - what's left of them - are having a snit fit.  Again.  Still.  They just can't accept the fact that they got their asses handed to them in the last election.  Which makes this both amusing and annoying at the same time.

"I would submit that this is a violation of the Constitution of Virginia,” said Sen. John Edwards, D-Roanoke."

And I would submit that John Edwards is lucky to have a job.

(And I'd submit that he not get too comfortable in that big, nice, taxpayer-financed chair of his.)

What's the "this" to which Edwards refers?

Being treated like the minority party that it has become.

Or, as the Republican Party of Virginia puts it:
Senate Democrats Continue Temper Tantrum
Statement of RPV Chairman Pat Mullins on Senate Democrat obstructionism:

"Today's actions by the Senate Democrat caucus are terribly disappointing. For generations, Virginia's elected officials have been able to settle their differences amicably without resorting to frivolous litigation and conducting virtual depositions on the floor of the Senate. Sadly, it appears Sen. Donald McEachin and his colleagues have abandoned the Virginia Way in favor of 'The Washington Way.'"

"The numbers couldn't be more clear - Republicans won November's Senate election by more than 200,000 votes, or more than 15 percentage points. Such a win is not a mandate for divided government. It is a mandate for Republican leadership.

"Both their offices and the Senate as a whole are diminished by the Democrats' short-sighted actions. Hopefully the Democrats will recognize the will of the voters and get on with the jobs they were elected to do."
The Democrats have threatened "further legal action."

The people of Virginia, based on numbers cumulated in the last election, threaten to make them extinct if they don't get back to doing the business the people sent them to Richmond to do.

Or they can keep whining and find themselves watching from their retirement home TV room actions taken by the government.

Either way.  It really doesn't matter.

Same Singer. Same Song.

Obama yesterday:

If you’re willing to work even harder in this election than you did in the last election, I promise you, change will come."

The frightening part?

His audience believed him.  After all these years.

Unlike these lost little lambs, America's businessmen are not taken in by such horse shit anymore.  Take the "jobs" photo op that Obama arranged yesterday in the White House.  The one he'd probably rather wasn't photographed.

How Detached Can You Get?

Good God:

Female Heads of State Discuss How 'Climate Change'--But Not Sex-Selective Abortions--Hurt Women

My guess is, the subject of stoning women (but not men) for committing the blasphemous crime of adultery didn't come up either.

Nor did female sexual mutilation.

Nor the fact that there are imams out there declaring the routine beating of wives to be perfectly permissible according to Sharia law.

But that 0.2° C. increase in global temperatures over the last half century, by golly, well, that's certainly something female heads of state need to denounce.

Quote of the Day

Michelle Malkin to the (empty) head of the Democratic National Committee:

“Tone things down?” Practice what you preach, trash mouth.

Ouch.

Who Would Have Guessed?

I have to tell you, I wouldn't trust Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, or Elena Kagan with my checkbook, much less the safekeeping of the Constitution of the United States of America.

But then along comes a unanimous ruling that gives me pause and makes me wonder if these liberal politicians in black robes might, indeed, have paid attention in Constitutional Law classes.

To wit:

A Huge Victory for Religious Liberty, and a Huge Defeat for the Obama Justice Department

Liberal jurists - unanimously - siding with a religious institution. Who'da thunk it?

My Problem With Romney

I don't know why he's running for president.

Neither does Fred Barnes.

If it's simply "to win," we're all in big trouble.


My Suggestion To Michelle Obama

Before you tell us what we think of you, why don't you come out from behind all those fawning media people and ask us what we think of you?

Instead of asking, though, you tell us what we think?

Really?

Guess so.  Here's Madam First Lady:

"... [T]hat's been an image that people have tried to paint of me since, you know, the day Barack announced, that I'm some angry black woman."

Angry?

I've never heard anyone call you angry.

Condescending perhaps.

Aloof for sure.

Meddlesome.

Out of touch.

Indifferent.

Self-indulgent.

Overweening.

Liberal.

Distant.

Profligate.

And, most of all, unappreciative of the American Dream that was made a reality for you by a host of Americans that came before you.

But angry?

Naaaah.
