Of course they are. It’s all about regimentation, you know. The people may not make their own decisions about what they eat. The government must mandate not just nutrition standards but comfort food as well. Comfort food must be eliminated.
The people must not be comfortable.
States are trying to circumvent federal nutrition standards that would limit sugary foods at school fundraisers.
Barely a month after federal regulations for school cafeterias kicked in, states are already pushing back.
Specifically, they’re fighting nutrition standards that would considerably alter one of the most sacred rituals of the American public school system: bake sales.
Twelve states have established their own policies to circumvent regulations in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 that apply to “competitive snacks,” or any foods and beverages sold to students on school grounds that are not part of the Agriculture Department’s school meal programs, according to the National Association of State Boards of Education. Competitive snacks appear in vending machines, school stores, and food and beverages, including items sold at bake sales.”

The story was big news while it was happening. Potentially more fuel for the anti-gun media.
But what’s this? The shooter was stopped by a CCW holder? A doctor was carrying a gun and shot the perp?
“Bury the story.”
Shooting At Pennsylvania Hospital Leaves One Dead, Two Wounded
PHILADELPHIA, PA– (CNN) — A shooting at a suburban Philadelphia hospital Thursday afternoon left a psychiatric caseworker dead and two wounded, including a doctor, local authorities said.
Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan said the shooting happened about 2:30 p.m. in a treatment room at Mercy Fitzgerald Wellness Center in Darby, Pennsylvania, according to CNN affiliate KYW-TV.
Whelan said it appears an outpatient psychiatric patient shot and killed the caseworker, and the doctor, who was carrying his own weapon, shot the patient. Authorities said they did not know why the patient opened fire.”

This happened in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
CALGARY — One of the organizers of a pro-Palestinian protest in Calgary last Friday plans to apologize publicly to pro-Israeli demonstrators who were beaten up during the event.
It was just one of a growing list of marches across Canada and around the world that are being tainted by violence and anti-Semitic slogans.
Over the past few days, thousands of protesters have massed in Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Amsterdam and other European cities in mostly peaceful expressions of support for Palestinians in Gaza.
Some of the demonstrations have taken on a distinctly anti-Semitic tinge, although organizers said they were designed solely to protest the Israeli incursion into Gaza.”
Careful – Language. This is happening in many places. It appears to be a coordinated effort to bring violence into the discussion. In the amateur video below you can see the pro-Hamas demonstrators verbally, and then physically attacking supporters of Israel.
The same thing is playing out wherever these clashes occur. After a while, when they find that they won’t be arrested, they escalate. In Paris the fire bombing and destruction of Jewish-owned businesses has caused Jews to flee the city.
Unless stopped by greater force this violence will become greater. And it will happen in the Untied States.
Below is a brief video that shows it is coming to the United States. The violence hasn’t begun – yet. But it will.
This is in American Thinker. The writer describes her early years as a leftist. She was far, far left. Then, bit by bit she realized that those around her, other leftists, were unhappy, hate-filled people who strove to destroy things, people, and institutions. Surprisingly, for her, the people she and other leftists hated were builders, not destroyers. That was the beginning of her transformation. It took a while but little by little she made an about-face. She says she voted Republican in the 2012 election.
A high-profile example of leftist invective was delivered by MSNBC’s Martin Bashir in late 2013. Bashir said, on air and in a rehearsed performance, not as part of a moment’s loss of control, something so vile about Sarah Palin that I won’t repeat it here. Extreme as it is, Bashir’s comment is fairly representative of a good percentage of what I read on left-wing websites.
I could say as much about a truly frightening phenomenon, left-wing anti-Semitism, but I’ll leave the topic to others better qualified. I can say that when I first encountered it, at a PLO fundraising party in Marin County, I felt as if I had time-traveled to pre-war Berlin.
I needed to leave the left, I realized, when I decided that I wanted to spend time with people building, cultivating, and establishing, something that they loved.”
Maryland is losing those jobs just like Colorado lost jobs when Magpul moved out. Beretta, though, is a much bigger deal. “Beretta U.S.A. anticipates that the Gallatin, Tennessee facility will involve $45 million of investment in building and equipment and the employment of around 300 employees during the next five years.”
The day after gun control supporters [falsely] claimed that the passage of an “assault weapon” and “high-capacity magazine” ban and increased concealed carry requirements reduced firearms-related crime in Maryland, Italian gunmaker Beretta announced that it’s moving all of its manufacturing out of Maryland and into Tennessee. GM Jeff Cooper left no doubt that The Free State’s post-Newtown push for civilian disarmament (a.k.a., Bill SB281) triggered the move . . .
During the legislative session in Maryland that resulted in passage of the Firearm Safety Act of 2013, the version of the statute that passed the Maryland Senate would have prohibited Beretta U.S.A. from being able to manufacture, store or even import into the State products that we sell to customers throughout the United States and around the world. While we were able in the Maryland House of Delegates to reverse some of those obstructive provisions the possibility that such restrictions might be reinstated in the future leaves us very worried about the wisdom of maintaining a firearm manufacturing factory in the State.”

Iowa gun owners are raising a stink here. They have contact information for Burlington Mayor and City Council members.
The Burlington Iowa City Council is moving to pass an ordinance that would require you to get their WRITTEN permission before your kids can play with toy guns, replica guns, BB guns, etc!
If your kids play with these toys in most outdoor situations, or if they play with toy guns in the car while you drive them around, you are looking at a fine in excess of $500 and up to a month in jail!”
NAACP member says they are not welcome there because they don’t spout the leftist NAACP line.
This is remarkable. The NAACP member keeps asking questions and then shouts down the conservatives, refusing to allow them to answer. In her own words she is angry that they are even there.
These are designed by Eleanor Haswell. She describes the line thus: “Why are you so afraid of your own anatomy?” I would say it’s creepy – designed to ensure the wearer remains untouched.
If you are a police officer and you engage in a ‘No-knock raid’ you might be killed. And the shooting may be called justified. This happened in Texas. Henry Magee was the subject of such a raid. He says he thought he was being robbed and acted to protect his pregnant girlfriend and children. The Grand Jury believed him and refused to indict him for the capitol murder charge he was arrested on.
Here are two sources. First is an article in the Washington Post titled, “Some justice in Texas: The raid on Henry Magee”.
Last December 19th, nine of the 10 members of the Burleson County Sheriff’s Department staged a raid on the rural home of Henry Magee. An informant had told Deputy Adam Sowders that Magee was running a major marijuana grow. They’d find 12-14 plants, all over six fee tall, the informant said. Magee also had, according to the informant, a vicious dog and several guns, one of which had been stolen from the Burleson County Sheriff’s Department.
By the time the raid was over, Deputy Adam Sowder was dead. Magee shot him as Sowder and his fellow deputies attempted to force their way into Magee’s home. Magee was arrested and charged with capital murder — the knowing and intentional killing of a police officer.”
Second is an essay written by Jonathan Turley in Ammoland.com. Turley writes:
We have previously discussed our concerns over the seemingly exponential increase in “no knock” raids in the country where police give no warning before raiding a home. (here and here and here and here and here and here)
Now in a remarkable ruling, a Texas grand jury has refused to indict Goedrich Magee, 20, who shot and killed a law enforcement officer, Burleson County Sgt. Adam Sowders, 31, during a no knock entrance into his home. Magee said that he thought he was being robbed and acted to protect his pregnant girlfriend and children. The grand jury “no billed” the case in February.
We have seen other such mistaken self-defense cases arise around the country as police increasingly use these no knock warrants. Magistrate and judges appear to give little thought to approving such warrants despite a ruling earlier by the Supreme Court limiting their use.”
It is time that police departments rethink their use of no-knock raids. Especially if they are based on a sole informant. We have seen this before. People frequently make false claims against others – for many reasons. In this case the informant claimed Magee had six-foot high pot plants, a bunch of guns – including one that was stolen from the police. None of his information was true.
Police officers put themselves in situations like this unnecessarily. Their superiors order them to do it. Their superiors seem to care little for their officers. Entries like these should be reserved for truly violent suspects.
Hint: He’s lying. It happens quite frequently.
Concealed Carrier Defends Herself, Helps Destroy Carjacking and Robbery Gang
Victoria Davison was going to her car when she was attacked by brazen carjackers that had been terrorizing citizens in Milwaukee and Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.
The difference between Davison and the previous victims is that she was able to get her hands on the concealed weapon she kept in her car.
Victoria Davison said two boys came up behind her and one of them shouted for her to give up her keys.
According to Davison, one of the robbers told her, “I want the keys, car, everything.”
Davison said when she didn’t produce the keys fast enough, one of the boys said, “Go get the cannon.”
Thinking it meant a gun, Davison managed to unzip her gym bag, produce her own concealed gun, and fired at one of the boys.
“I shot the one that was in front of me. The one in the back of me, he said a curse word, and then he looked at his friend, and then he ran off while his friend was on the ground,” Davison said.””

From Natural News:
Near mutiny among Border Patrol agents as DHS makes traitorous demands
According to the Guerilla Media Network (GMN), an “exclusive expose” regarding the standoff in Murrieta, California, between local and federal law enforcement and residents opposed to the government’s shipping of scores of illegal aliens to the community, “a confidential informant inside the Murrieta U.S. Border Patrol facility” says “the real reason busses stopped delivering illegal immigrants was due to a virtual mutiny” within the agency’s ranks at the station.
‘They threatened to stand down’
GMN reported further that a recorded telephone interview with “a highly credible and prominent Murrieta community leader” on July 14 “revealed that frontline U.S. Border Patrol agents threatened to stand down if the Department of Homeland Security executed a plan to use force upon protestors if they impeded buses transporting undocumented immigrants into the Murrieta processing facility.
“Most of the Border Patrol agents here at this facility are residents of Murrieta, and when they found out that the DHS was going to come in with riot gear, the agents declared that they would not obey any unlawful orders which violate the Constitutional rights of peaceful protestors,” said the informant, according to GMN. “Our contact inside the U.S. Border Patrol told us that we do not even realize how impactful the protest was….it was a shot heard around the world….all the way back to Guatemala”
Rolling Stone, the hippie magazine, has an article out currently that is titled, “The 5 Most Dangerous Guns in America”, with the subtitle, “These are the firearms causing the most harm”.
Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country’s most dangerous.”
All right. I looked to see which guns are considered by hippies to be the five most dangerous. Here is what I found:
Really. They even have a seven image photo essay to show the evil guns. Why they needed seven images to show five guns could only make sense to a Rolling Stone editor. This is not just clumsy. It’s lazy and poor workmanship.
But what did I expect?

He objects to ‘Xenophobic remarks’ made by Beckel. He may be right, too. Beckel is out of control. More than once he has used the ‘F word’ on air. I guess he can get away with it because Fox News is a cable channel.
Doesn’t that also apply to words like, “Chinamen”?
Lieu must be a member of the Perpetually Outraged Club.
A California State Senator is calling for a Fox TV host to resign after using a racial slur on his show.
Senator Ted Lieu, who represents the Santa Monica area of Southern California was outraged by the comments made by Fox News Host Bob Beckel made racially disparaging comments regarding Chinese people.
“We should all be alarmed by the racist, xenophobic comments by Fox News Host Bob Beckel, Lieu said.
Lieu, a Chinese-American says this was the second time Mr. Beckel used racial slurs.
After Beckel went swimming last year once last year, he said his “eyes blew up, and it made me look Oriental.”
During a Thursday broadcast of “The Five,” Beckel said that “Chinese are the single biggest threat to the national security of the U.S.. Do you know what we just did? As usual, we bring them over here and teach a bunch of Chinamen – err, Chinese people – how to do computers, and then they go back to China and hack us.”

Mike Vickers has a thousand acre ranch in south Texas. Illegal immigrants frequently cross parts of his ranch on their way north. Last year he found an Urdu-English phrase book that had been left behind by one of those illegals. He figures it belonged to a coyote who needed to communicate with he customer as he brought them across.
While local ranchers have to contend with torn-up fences, broken water lines, contaminated wells and robbery on a daily basis from illegal immigrants streaming through, a Texas Border Patrol agent told TheBlaze there is “no doubt” that among the hordes of Central Americans are also crossers from Pakistan and Afghanistan, raising significant national security concerns.”

“We were told we couldn’t take pictures or ask questions of staff or anyone else. We told them we would handle their rules the same way the President handles our laws – We would treat them as suggestions.”
He said the children that actually make it across the border are the lucky ones. There are some that start the journey but never make it.
Bridenstine pointed out that the illegals within the US are in many cases the ones paying coyotes to bring these unaccompanied minors across the border. But in some cases where the coyotes aren’t paid or the wrong one is paid, these children can be subject to forced labor, prostitution, or even sold into the slave trade.
He also mentioned mass graves in northern Mexico where some have been killed.
Bridenstine said he learned that many of these minors are being released in the US to other illegals and not to American citizens.”

Someone just trying to explain the Hamas problem in Israel to an anti-Semite:
I spoke to another person this weekend who was convinced that Israel is just using the rocket attacks perpetrated by Hamas is an “excuse” to further their “holocaust” and widen their “apartheid” against the Palestinian people.
Just so happens, he spends his winters in Apache Junction, Arizona. So I asked him to consider something.
I spoke to him on several points, and asked him to consider this not-too-far-out-there scenario (it has actually happened before):
Imagine, for a second, that you’re in Apache Junction one day, and rockets start falling out of the sky. All told, 400 rockets are fired off over the next couple of days, and just in the area around Apache Junction, you know of 3 children who were killed by a rocket while playing in a park, and two businessmen who died in their office, victims of a direct hit. All told, the death toll in Apache Junction, Phoenix, and surrounding areas approached the death toll of the Newtown shooting.
Now, consider that such attacks occur two to three times a year, and each time it happens, another 20 to 30 people are killed.
It is discovered that a Reconquista movement has strengthened itself, and has become emboldened by what it sees as the United State’s reluctance to engage in direct conflict after Iraq and Afghanistan, and has decided to “take back” the “occupied” territories that were captured from Mexico during the Mexican/American War. Part of its game plan is a terror campaign waged against the people of the American Southwest, and a large portion of this group’s ranks are filled with people who want to see very single American citizen killed.”
How did that work out? You can read the post here
He has seen the truth. The Palestinians have made their point and he has paid attention – finally. It really is too bad that more of the world’s – and America’s – leftists can’t see also.
From Israel Matzav:
In a piece in Haaretz which is thus far only out in Hebrew, Shlomo Avineri, an icon of the Israeli Left… , tells readers, “We were incredibly stupid…. We thought they wanted a state, and a two-state solution, but it turns out that they want to destroy Israel, because they cannot/will not accept any form of Jewish national self-determination.” As my kids like to say at such times “Boker Tov Eliyahu” (Good morning Elijah).
The initiators of Oslo and the process’ supporters saw the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a conflict between two national movements, and believed – as I believed – that in direct negotiations between Israel and the PLO, a solution could be found to the territorial and strategic issues that are the source of the dispute between the two movements. It was not simple to persuade Israelis – and even the Labor party – that there was a national movement on the other side, and that although it had terrorist aspects, at heart it is entitled to fulfill its independent national self-definition, just like Zionism. The viewpoints of Golda Meir on the subject (“there is no Palestinian nation”) have not been forgotten, and the fact that the initiators of Oslo managed to overcome this tradition of denial, to which even the Labor party was a partner, was an accomplishment.
But the basis of this concept had a mistake. All of those who supported the Oslo process believed that we were talking about a dispute between two national movements, and that the other side felt the same way.
We were mistaken.
The Palestinian side does not believe that we are talking about a dispute between two national movements: It believes that we are talking about a dispute between one national movement – the Palestinian – and a colonial imperialistic entity that will eventually die off.”
“If the mayor’s not going to provide security….get yourself some firearms because you’re going to have to protect yourselves”
John Rivera, president of the Miami-Dade Police Benevolent Association, has warned Florida residents to arm themselves because the police are not coming.
Speaking to WSVN News, Rivera said, “If the mayor’s not going to provide security, then my recommendation, as an experienced law enforcement officer for nearly 40 years, is either buy yourself an attack dog, put bars on your windows and doors and get yourself some firearms because you’re going to have to protect yourselves.”
The comments were made after Mayor Carlos Gimenez decided to cut $64 million from his 2014-2015 budget resulting in a possible loss of 600 police jobs to the county.”
Good advice even if the Mayor is not cutting the police budget. Don’t forget the training, either.

It was a federal officer who did the shooting.
Four people were arrested at a pro-Israel peace rally in front of the Federal Building in Los Angeles Sunday after pro-Palestinian protesters also turned up and the two sides clashed.
At least one gunshot was fired by a Federal Protective Service officer, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office said.
Four men were arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The weapons were identified by the department as wooden flag poles.
Witnesses in Westwood said the confrontation included a scuffle between men who drove past the protest displaying a Palestinian flag and pro-Israel protesters.
A man who said he was in the truck said the Palestinian flag was ripped away. When men from the truck attempted to retrieve the flag, there was a confrontation.
As several of the men tried to leave the scene, at least one gunshot was fired at the truck by the FPS officer.”
That officer must have been trained in New York… or not at all. No one was shot. Why do you suppose he started shooting in the middle of a crowd in the middle of town? He, or she, should be severely disciplined.

Albany, New York VA hospital is as bad as any other. Indignant doctors, nurses, and others are stepping forward to tell just how bad it has been. This woman is a hero.
From the New York Post:
Nurse exposes VA hospital: Stolen drugs, tortured veterans
Registered nurse Valerie Riviello has worked 28 years at the Albany Stratton VA Medical Center, most recently in the psychiatric unit. She teaches at two local nursing schools,and has received many honors for patient care and safety, including the Florence Nightingale Award. Last fall, Riviello challenged the treatment of a female veteran strapped to her bed for hours on end, in violation of VA rules. As a result, she was stripped of her nursing duties. Now she’s one of 37 whistleblowers nationwide whose allegations of retaliation are under investigation by the US Office of Special Counsel. Riviello told her story to The Post’s Susan Edelman.”

First there is the story of central American gang members entering the United States as unaccompanied minors:
Illegal Unaccompanied Minors Being Held For Placement in U.S. Admit to Engaging in Torture and Murder
“We have six minors in Nogales who have admitted to killing and doing grievous bodily injuries. One admitted to killing as young as eight years old,” an agent tells Townhall anonymously for fear of losing his job for speaking out. “They are being held for placement in the U.S.”
By U.S. legal standards many gang members operating in Central American countries and traveling north are classified as minors due to being under the age of 18. However, many young males are actively engaged in violent cartel and criminal activity, yet are treated as children when processed through the Department of Human Services or Department of Homeland Security systems.”
The story comes from Townhall
Next there is this story from Breitbart.
TSA ALLOWING ILLEGALS TO FLY WITHOUT VERIFIABLE ID, SAYS BORDER PATROL UNION
MCALLEN, Texas—Illegal aliens are being allowed to fly on commercial airliners without valid identification, according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). “The aliens who are getting released on their own recognizance are being allowed to board and travel commercial airliners by simply showing their Notice to Appear forms,” NBPC’s Local 2455 Spokesman, Hector Garza, told Breitbart Texas.
“This is not the CBP [Customs and Border Protection] or another federal agency renting or leasing an aircraft, these are the same planes that the American public uses for domestic travel,” said Garza.”
If the worst we had to worry about was central American gang members it would be one thing but no one knows who these ‘children’ are. They have to take their word for everything.
Spokesman Garza continued, “We do not know who these people are, we often have to solely rely on who they say they are, where they say they came from, and the history they say they have. We know nothing about most of them, ICE releases them into the American public, and now they are boarding aircraft at will with a simple paper document that anyone can easily alter or reproduce themselves.”
Further into the Breitbart piece we find that the United Nations has noticed that people from other places – like Africa – are among the refugees.
The UN Office on Drugs and Crime’s “Transnational Organized Crime in Central America and the Caribbean” revealed that individuals from the terror-prone Somalia were traveling to Central America in efforts to illegally enter the United States. The report states:
“Central Americans are not the only ones being smuggled through Mexico to the United States. Irregular migrants from the Horn of Africa (Eritrea, Somalia, and Ethiopia), as well as South Asia (Bangladesh, Nepal, India), China, and other African and Asian states are being smuggled through Central America.”
So the TSA, being part of Homeland Security, is allowing these unknown people to travel on scheduled airlines. This is neither how you make transportation more secure nor is it how one makes the homeland more secure. The passengers and crew members on these aircraft are in great danger.

One by one the ancient rules regarding sex are being demolished.
Where is that asteroid when you need one?
From the UK Telegraph:
Judge in Australia says incest may no longer be a taboo and the only reason it is criminal is potential birth abnormalities, which can be solved by abortion
A judge in Australia has been criticised after saying incest may no longer be a taboo and that the community may now accept consensual sex between adult siblings.
Judge Garry Neilson, from the district court in the state of New South Wales, likened incest to homosexuality, which was once regarded as criminal and “unnatural” but is now widely accepted.
He said incest was now only a crime because it may lead to abnormalities in offspring but this rationale was increasingly irrelevant because of the availability of contraception and abortion.
“A jury might find nothing untoward in the advance of a brother towards his sister once she had sexually matured, had sexual relationships with other men and was now ‘available’, not having [a] sexual partner,” the judge said.”
CBS has used the propaganda from the Southern Poverty Law Center to make this article. The SPLC is run by Mark Potok.
Potok’s goal is to paint non-progressives as extremists. Since CBS is using his stuff they are doing the same thing.
There may be some truth to the assertion that militia members are ‘Emboldened’ by the retreat of federal agents at the Bundy ranch.
Far right wing extremists have been emboldened by the standoff earlier this year between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the federal government, according to a study released Thursday by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The report, entitled “War in the West” examines the conflict between the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and militiamen who supported Bundy, who owed more than $1 million in grazing fees and fines to the government, despite insisting that he had “preemptive rights” to let his cattle graze on the federally owned land.
The incident came as a result of a U.S. District Court ruling that he had to pay the fees just as any other rancher would. Federal agents rounded up around 400 cattle on the public land, leading to an armed standoff that lasted weeks until authorities released the cattle and withdrew. That action was seen as a victory among anti-government circles, particularly the “Patriot” movement, the study says.”
That ‘Study’ released by the SPLC is titled, “War In The West”. Their mission statement reads thus:
THE SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER is a nonprofit organization that combats hate, intolerance and discrimination through education and litigation. Its Intelligence Project, which prepared this report and also produces the quarterly investigative magazine Intelligence Report, tracks the activities of hate groups and the nativist movement and monitors militia and other extremist antigovernment activity. Its Teaching Tolerance project helps foster respect and understanding in the classroom. Its litigation arm files lawsuits against hate groups for the violent acts of their members.”
You should read the SPLC ‘Study’. It’s pure pro-government propaganda.

Dante Williams and Jawan Craig entered a Waffle House in Spartanburg, South Carolina with guns drawn.
They ordered everyone to the floor. Everyone complied with the order except CCW holder Justin Harrison. Williams came toward Harrison. Harrison shot him and killed him. Security video recorded the whole incident.
Williams’ family claim their son didn’t need to die. I say armed robbery can get you killed. And now, with more citizens legally carrying, the odds of an armed robber getting shot have increased as we see here.
Nineteen-year-old Dante Williams’ family said there is no doubt he entered the Waffle House in Chesnee back in January of 2012 intent on robbing it, but they say he didn’t have to die.
FOX Carolina obtained surveillance video from inside the Waffle House that investigators said shows Williams and his accomplice Jawan Craig come into the restaurant. Deputies said Williams is the one seen pointing a gun and demanding money.
Sitting at the bar area of the restaurant was Justin Harrison, a concealed weapon permit holder, who was armed the night of the robbery.
“They’re yelling ‘everybody get down, get down’ and I’m not getting on the floor. I am not going to be a victim,” Harrison said.
Harrison said while the men terrorized other customers and staff he was deciding when to act.
“This was the only time,” Harrison said. “If I am going to fight it was that one time. He was approaching me and I saw that as him engaging me.”

Holly is, from her own description, “Christian. Wife of an Army combat-infantry vet. Mom of 3.” She posted this image of herself on her Twitter account and the leftist loons have been going ballistic.
Of course the image of her in front of Hobby Lobby is trying enough for the perpetually butt-hurt, but the image of her carrying both a bible and an AR-15 is just too much. She is actually mocking President Obama’s comments about bitter clingers who cling to their guns and bibles. Can’t have that.
Funny, though, today we find that someone has juxtaposed her image with the image of the ‘White Widow’, a heroine of the left. She is holding a similar rifle and a copy of the Koran. Somehow there must be a difference. How can progressives approve of one but not the other? Can you explain it?
