The driver questioned the 62-year-old about the Donald Trump shirt he was wearing, and then followed him into the parking lot of the Friendly's restaurant on Broad Street, police said. The man then got out of his car with a crowbar, and during an altercation, struck...

    Is N.Y.'s Gun Confiscation Scheme Tied to Larger Federal Plan? Written by Dave Bohon A report from alleges that the state of New York is using its recently enacted NY SAFE Act as justification to confiscate firearms from law-abiding citizens — specifically individuals who have been prescribed anti-anxiety medication.

    Unfortunately, we are saddled with a communist sympathizer in the White House. I don't know whether or not he's an actual card carrying commie, but he's definitely an America-hating, anti-capitalist Marxist leftist who thinks communism is the way to go.

American citizen? hmmmm... that may be a loophole for Obama....

    May 25, 2004, 8:43 a.m. Blue Helmets vs. Prop. 209 A California judge uses a U.N. treaty to discriminate. By Lance T. Izumi & Sharon Browne Ever since Proposition 209, the anti-race-preference initiative, was passed by California voters in 1996, various state and local government agencies have sought a means to save race-based government programs. In a recent ruling, an Oakland judge purports to have found such a means in the form of a U.N. treaty that supposedly trumps Prop. 209....
