    I used to listen to NPR and have even donated to my local PBS station even though I knew it was left leaning. They do have some entertaining programming like Car Talk. My turning point was when they disparaged the TEA Party having posted a really insulting cartoon towards the TEA party on their web site. I complained but got no response. What made me turn off NPR/PBS forever was an interview with Van Jones where the interviewer fawned over that communist. NPR/PBS is not getting another penny from me except what the government confiscates from me to give to them. Even that I want to stop. NPR/PBS can go find their own money.

    I heard an interview with Mr. Zamperini. He said if you take the religious aspect out of his story, there is no story. Leave it to Hollywood to gut a deep story and leave it an empty shell, particularly when the story doesn’t fit their Leftist bend.

    Not everything can be passed on to customers. At some point in price, sales are reduced, potentially to zero. I like the Egg McMuffin but at its current price, I am not willing to have it more than twice a year. Even then, circumstances must be such that I needed to have breakfast fast food. Any higher than it is now (almost $4 where I live), I will have it once or zero per year. It just won’t be worth it to me any higher than it is now.

    Obama claims to care about we, the people, but he doesn’t. He has never fooled me. He is just a basic demagogue.

    It must be realized that this group is not the trained clapping seals who clap with every platitude that is uttered. So of course this was the response.

    After 5+ years of platitudes and no results, at least if one is not a utopian statist, Obama speeches should be pretty tedious and predictable to most.

    The man flatters himself. The idea isn’t so brilliant and novel that no one else would have thought of it.

    And the media makes it sound like 30 is a long way. If your potential attacker is just standing 30 feet away, then sure that is no threat. But if he is charging you, it will take hardly any time at all to close 30 feet. The mainstream media are dishonest and deliberately trying to mislead people to form a particular opinion.

    You might be on to a good business idea.

    I am not a wealthy man but I do want my 401k to perform the best possible. If companies I own stock in are voluntarily making less money than they can by feeding a voracious Democrat tax and spend government, I am not happy. The Dems and Progressive Repubs will never be satisfied with the tax money that is collected. Even if they collect 100% of what we make, they still won’t be satisfied. I guarantee you. They will spend spend spend whatever they can get their hands on and run up the credit card to the limit. “Economic patriotism”, especially mandated economic patriotism (that really rings of fascism in my ears) is a load of horse manure.

    I looked up the S&W 929. It really is a 9mm. I thought it was a misprint when the article said it is a 9mm since that is odd for a revolver and Mr Miculek is known for using a 357 mag revolver. But it really is 9mm. That has got to be a huge drop at 1000 yards.

    At first I thought the article saying it is a 9mm revolver is a mistake. For one, 9mm in a revolver is pretty strange. 2, I know Mr. Miculek likes to shoot 357 magnum, which is similar in diameter. That shot with a 357 is hard enough, but a weak 9mm?

    My father is from a small town where every home is armed. But more as a tool than for self defense. There hasn’t been a murder or home invasion in that town anyone’s memory. The town is one of those where people literally don’t bother locking their doors.

    My grandparents had a shotgun and a rifle always in a corner in the dining room. But not for self defense, they were tools for taking care of varmints. However, my aunt told me the shotgun had been used defensively by my great grandmother to ward off unruly drunks.

    The range officers at the range I frequent have told me that. I have also seen that first hand. I am 52 and had first shot when I was 12. My daughter out shot me her 2nd time out 3 years ago (she was 13 at the time). She also kicked my **** the first time we both participated in a smallbore silhouette contest. But I have since improved and I now outshoot her in the silhouette contest by a little bit. She is petite and gets fatigued from the offhand shooting.

    Representative Gowdy is a former prosecutor. The man knows what he is doing.

    I isn’t simply a matter of mutual consent between the employer and the employee. There is also the matter of productivity. So Mary Poppins says just $3 more an hour is great. But if that job is not producing at least $3 more per hour of the employee’s current costs, raising the minimum wage by $3/hour will result in that person being out of a job. A job must increase the bottom line, not be a drain to the bottom line. Jobs do not exist for the purpose of redistributing wealth. Jobs are created for the purpose of creating wealth. That is good for both the employee and the employer. Why should an employer create a job that is a drain on his/her finances? A job that reduces wealth = no more job for any sustainably run business.

    Lefties make pretty arguments but they don’t hold up to reality.

    The establishment Republicans seem like they would rather have a quite Leftist Dem win than a TEA party candidate. Witness some Republican politicians in Virginia (McAuliffe over Cucinelli), Georgia, and Alaska (backed a Dem in Hawaii) backing the Dem.

    I find it really disgusting. It is expected to be attacked by one’s opposition, but to be betrayed by one’s own people in favor of someone farther from the publicly stated goals? (Note that I said stated goals. I don’t believe the goals of establishment Republicans are what they state publicly.)

    While the majority of Muslims do not support terrorism, it isn’t fringe in their community to support terrorism. It is estimated about 25% do. That is way high. It only took 19 men to execute the 9/11 attacks. The Palestinians voted Hamas into power – an organization whose charter seeks to eliminate all Jews, not just Israel.

    Who is going to scream not to use their neighborhood as a rocket launching pad? Palestinians are terrorized by their own people. Those who don’t support Hamas are terrorized into silence.

    That one accurate projectile ain’t cheap.

    SOME Jews, not “the” Jews, were directly responsible. Those Jews died long ago. A person is responsible for one’s actions, not what one’s ancestors did thousands of year ago. Besides, Jesus was a Jew.

    Several years ago, my mother-in-law said something anti-Semitic, I don’t remember what exactly. I challenged her on it and asked her why she feels that way. She said that is what the priest taught in the Catholic orphanage she grew up in. Then I told her about individual responsibility and the fact that Jesus was a Jew. She replied, “Oh” and was dumbfounded. (I am not suggesting that all Catholic priests are this way, but that one was at least. But it does illustrate the power a teacher can have over some people’s minds.)

    Entertaining, yes. But it isn’t like Pelosi is an intellectual giant. I think it is natural that she is confounded by a high school student.

    I really do not understand how she is continually reelected to the House.
