    The following is a list, provided by the White House, of executive actions President Obama plans to take to address gun violence. - Followed by my observations on their relevance. 1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system. - Why aren’t they already doing this? And are you including illegal aliens, because something tells me you aren’t. 2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system. - Must be...

    I had to come on to FR and post the following discussion that just took place at lunch that I had with a law enforcement agent that I am currently working with and a general practitioner who happen to be dining at a booth next to ours. The television was on as the President was giving his speech about his 23 executive orders. When the discussion arrived about mental health and giving up personal information under the HIPPA act. The physician stated that if Americans read about Obamacare a year ago they would have seen that the foundation was clearly...
  • Why Are We Paying For A War Being Waged Against Us?

    Why Are We Paying For A War Being Waged Against Us? By Jim Johnson January 16, 2013 Before putting the stamp on that tax return, or hitting ‘submit’ on that e-file, hold on a minute. This could be a lawful way (and perhaps the best way) to send a clear message to governments across the country: Hold up all tax payments to the last moment – maybe even longer. Hear me out, America. This is about more than the Second Amendment issue, and we’ll get to that in a moment. The next so-called ‘crisis’ the out-of-control federal government is facing...

  • New Photo ID Law?

    01/15/2013 12:16:04 PM PST · by MNDude · 18 replies
    Last night I went to a Western Union to send money. There was a young black woman ahead of me who was asked for her ID in order to send money. She became very irate with the guys working there and saying she never had to do that before. The Western Union guys insisted it was a new law made for the IRS that came into place this 2013. They finally had to have a security guard escort the woman from their place of business because she was getting very confrontational about having to show ID. In any case, this...

    3,691 more signatures needed. This petition implements RULES FOR RADICALS #5: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon" against Obama. If gun-free zones make people safe, then why don’t we declare the immediate vicinity of the President and Vice-President to be gun-free zones and send the Secret Service home? Or are gun-free zones good enough for our kids, but not good enough for our overlords? It is the height of arrogance and hypocrisy for politicians to surround themselves with armed guards while insisting that our children be soft targets. There are 8 more days to get the required number of signatures...
  • An Open Letter to Colin Powell

    Dear Secretary Powell: I understand you were a guest on one of the Sunday chat shows and listed a few things that Republicans have said that indicate that they harbor underlying racism. I believe you called it “a dark vein of intolerance.” Your examples were: 1) Shuckin’ and jivin’ 2) Lazy, accompanied by the unspoken but certainly implied “shiftless,” not to even mention that reallllly unspoken third word. I confess that those dog whistles are much too high for my ears, but that could be because I’m in my 60s. I would never have dreamed that using those terms regarding...

    I caught the tail end of a local DC-area radio program last week (Thursday) and I'm pretty sure I heard one of the representatives from the Nation's Gun Show say that they would no longer allow the sale of "assault weapons" at their show in Chantilly, VA. Can anyone verify this? If this is true, I have attended my last Nation's Gun Show.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A massive new federal scientific report says global warming is already changing America from sea to rising sea and how Americans live. The government issued Friday a 1,146-page draft report that details in dozens of ways how climate change is already disrupting the health, homes and other facets of daily American life. It warns that those disruptions will increase in the future. The blunt report takes a global environmental issue and explains what it means for different U.S. regions, for various sectors of the economy and for future generations. The National Climate Assessment doesn't say what should...

    For those of us who were on the fence whether Ann Barnhardt was a taco short of a platter, here's the proof. Seemingly she closed her brokerage business while having a sizable mortgage. The reason she claims to have taken this mortgage is to prevent some near-do-well from aborting her child. Predictably, this had not the desired effect; now there is just one more up and coming near-do-well in the world. She continues to defend her actions despite clear evidence that she was manipulated by satan's spawn. Sad...

    Joe Biden and Barack Obama have an assault rifle with a 30 round magazine pointed at the temples of Congress, the Senate, and America. They have decided that, to achieve the same gun control that only twenty years ago required the consent of both the House of Representatives and the Senate, all they need to do is issue some Imperial Decrees. This Emperor Obama has decided to simply NOT CONSULT and NOT INVOLVE both of the Houses of government, the House of Congress and the Senate, and unilaterally impose rules that only 20 years ago required consent of both of...
