They went in to scoop a litterpan and ended up uncovering a septic tank! I think the committe is doing great work. The only question ia, what will it take before the DOJ files charges? Lord Barry controls that one, so that may take a while. Still, I think if Biden gets in, Clinton will go right under the bus wheels.

Lies. We know what the progressives want to do. We always have. As usual, they take little steps, each not looking like too big a move. Each in the name of safety. Everytime the see a weakness…. Restricting types of ammo, making it harder for sub calsses of people to obtain their rights. In the end, they won’t need to officially “ban” guns because it will already be imposible to obtain a weapon or ammo. At that point, the confiscation will begin, but there will be too few of us left to stop it.

Considering the family history, he may have made the right personal choice, for all the wrong reasons. There are a loot ways to kill yourself. I suspect many of out single-car highway deaths may actually be suicides since I know of one friend who did exactly that. (Drove into a bridge pillar at highway speed.) No one would have known had he not left a note. Bottom line, there will always be ways to kill people and to take your own life. Blaming a gun is about the same as blaming a hammer or any other tool.
Transparent as a cinder-block. While we are on the subject, time for an audit of the contents of Ft. Knox.

Public location over a property theft issue? Makes no sense. Life issues only. (as in YOUR life.) I am reminded of the Oregon Mall shooting, where a CC pointed his gun at the shooter. Did not fire. Shooter saw that and killed himself. In the news interview the CC stated that he would not have fired unless the shooter took aim. Too big a chance of one of his bullets finding an innocent bystander. That’s called “thinking it through.” Something that didn’t happen in this case.

You might as well be asking an ISIS member to renounce Mohammad. The “Global Warming” religion requires and implements about the same tactics to punish those that dishonor their prophet Al Gore.
The real prophet should be Exxon. Their own scientists were the ones that discovered the potentially devastating effects of excess CO2 back in the 70's well before Gore ever brought attention to the issue.
You mean the Global Cooling, we are headed for an ice age, alarmists in the 70s Welfare?
I am amazed at the number of people that are AMAZED that Global( whatever the flavor of the day is Cooling, warming, changing) is anything but a myth. Have we fallen so far down the rabbit hole we can no longer use REAL science( Geology for one) that Earth core sample PROVE the Earth has gone thru several warming/cooling cycle over the millenniums and if not taken out by Iran's nuclear weapons will repeat this cycle a few more millenniums. The progressive movement uses the heart to interpret facts and the heart will lie to you 100% of the time. I FEEL are two works that like Career Politician should never be used in the same sentence.
@Franklin Nope, I mean Global Warming, we are headed for warmer global temperatures say scientists from a huge oil company in the 70's for christ sake.

800 pound Gorilla:
1) The combined firepower of all the drug gangs in this country constitute the 6th largest armed force in the world.
2) They are at war with each other and we are caught in the crossfire.
You want to clean things up politicians? Then we should focus on taking apart these drug gangs. Get rid of them and you will probably see an 80 to 90% drop in gun violence.
Trump is the only candidate I know of who's specifically stated that he would do just that.
I agree with John 1776 in that the Drug War is a failure and consequently, we should legalize drugs.
From Rep. Lamar Smith citing an FBI report
Any further questions, LbSoc?
The 70,000,000 gun owners are the largest unofficial standing army in the world. If we stick together nothing can stand against us.
Legalizing drugs would at the very least deliver a severe blow to the gang economy. So they would either have to go legit, or wither away with nothing to support it.
Look at Mexico. One gun store and statistics run from 10,000 - 30,000 murdered annually. In looking that up I was really surprised by the murder rate in the US Virgin Islands. Like Colombia and Venezuela.
my issue with the "mental health" regulations are....Who deems someone mentally incompetent to own a fire arm....Is this not creating a Pandora's box? I mean they are already trying to tie guns to health problems....Is this because now the government runs the medical industry, therefore giving them a new platform to preach and regulate from?
The only way to end drug gangs is by taking away their "oxygen supply," drug sale profits. In other words, END PROHIBITION.
The first drug gangs appeared in America when a Progressive government instituted alcohol Prohibition in the 20s. It was the result of simple supply and demand. The government restricted supply of a commodity that was in high demand, increasing the profits on that commodity. And small time criminals immediately stepped in and started making massive profits.
By giving up the regulation of alcohol, the government handed those criminals hundreds of millions of dollars, and they were soon able to purchase any weapons they desired and hire small armies, and that's when the drug wars in the streets started.
When's the last time you heard about a shootout on the streets of Chicago over bourbon? Never in your lifetime, unless you're very old. The gangs all switched to marijuana and prescription drugs after we switched Prohibition from alcohol to those other drugs.
"But taking drugs is bad for society!"
Yes, but drug Prohibition is far worse for society. It doesn't work as intended and it adds harm. We now arrest around 800,000 people a year for simple possession of small amounts of marijuana alone, we've wasted over $1 trillion, and we have far larger prison system than Soviet Russia at its worse.
This is the same issue as welfare; the government is fighting human nature and making things far worse. The solution is clear--END PROHIBITION NOW.
actually you are on to something. the gun debate should go like this. who is committing these crimes? stats show that black males commit most gun crimes in an overwhelming majority. you can fill in the rest.

Not news in the Philly area. More like a typical encounter at Walmart, DMV, Post office, you name it. Entitled Libs are out of control.

He said 57.
Coincidentally, there are however 57 Muslim countries.
I’ve always considered it a slip of the tongue.

Given the limited pool that they must pick from, Chaffetz would be a good choice. Far better then Boehner’s right hand man, who’s view of gun control appears to be how well you can shoot yourself in the foot.
What limited pool? Speaker of the House doesn't have to be a member of congress.
Marnin is correct, John 1776.
Not sure if any non-congressman HAS ever been Speaker, but there is no Constitutional limitation on the office requiring that the Speaker be a congressman.

If the shooter’s last wish would be for me to deliver a package, the first thing I would do once he was dead would be to throw it into a compacter/shredder. Why fulfill his wish? Probably just some ramblings explaining his reasons for his actions. There is no “reasoning” his action, so let his name die to history and his ramblings too.
if he's promotin islam and sharia, then the world needs to know that it's here!!!

What a dreamy idea! To be dropped in the middle of nowhere with Obama!
I think I would say, “You live by your philosophy and I’ll live by mine” and see who makes it out alive! Reality can be a brutal teacher…..
Being respectful; “Remember sir, you do not believe in gun ownership” I would say as the hungry bear approached.
John: What? You don't think Candy Crowley is beautiful? lol
@JOHN-------:)--It truly isn't a pretty site--they always look sweaty and unkept!!!--
MK did a phot spread for GQ or Maxim, one of those trendy metro mags. She's pretty enough and smart enough, but I'm not so sure the trophy is worth the abuse.
After a hard day of working, all beat down and stressed out, I doubt MK (or most liberal women) is the type to bring you a beer and something hot to eat.
I believe "most Liberal men" would prefer another man.
As far as liberal women go, Kirsten Powers on Fox News is pretty (and smart) and there’s the multitude of liberal bobbleheads in Hollywood (not so smart).
So the liberals have their fair share of beautiful women. This is of course offset by hags such as Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Hillary Clinton all whom have taken a rather Palpatine-esq appearance over time (as in Emperor Palpatine of the Galactic Empire in Star Wars). I guess the dark side really ages a person.
"Most liberal men" are women.
Hey Nutz, why you insult women like that? "Most liberal men” are women: And all you yahoo's that gave it a thumbs up, you're idiots.
Viagara was invented for lib women.
Candy Crowley is safe in the midst of an Egyptian mob.
Keaton FTW !
Liberalism: where the men aren't and the women are.
Hillary being their top representative......

Show me charts. When I share these links, visuals get the point across far better than text. Remember, the point of sharing is to help introduce our liberal friends to the facts. The “liberal” mind no longer inputs text, only soundbites and pictures. A picture (at least) may get through in a subliminal fashion before the ideology filter snaps shut and censors the input.

Micro-managing just like LBJ in ‘nam.

Although FF has been a fact of war for the history of mankind, the complete dismantling of our ground intelligence in the entire middle-east has made these incidents far more likely. Although there is some ground intel in Afghanistan, we are operating totally blind in Iraq and Syria.

You need some sort of output device (the explosive), and some type of detonator which is then wired to the circuit. An electronic circuit is not a bomb if you can account for the area it takes up.
The first thing that struck me was it was a commercial circuit board as compared to a breadboard circuit. Wasn’t even G10, just a regular pre-drilled and pre-laid out paper board like you would find in a cheap clock.
Either way it looked like a crappy clock/bomb. I would have given him a d minus for that one. If I were a teacher that is.
You could use a can type high microfarad capacitor to pack enough material to do major damage. So electronics themselves can be made into explosive material. And with cheap microcontrollers available now, you can code in timers and outputs transmitted via wifi or Bluetooth and have no wires showing. Gone are the days of 555 timers, shift registers and logic chips crammed on a board and wired together. Unless you just want to understand logic and TTL. It’s all done with Arduino, Pic, or some other over the counter controller. A little C code and you're off!
