Only sociopaths/psychopaths would refuse to acknowledge the difference between legal immigration/immigrants and illegal immigration/immigrants.
We now have an entire federal government with leadership so thoroughly preoccupied with promoting homosexuality, Islam, racial divisiveness and political correctness that federal employees cannot perform the simple tasks that comprise the job they are employed and paid to do.
What they won't tell you is that those places have the lowest per capita murder rates.
More guns, less murder.
Bill Whittles YouTube video Number One With a Bullet illustrates this very succinctly.
Here is a link to it.
Here are links to the three data sources that he references.
Here is a graph of the data showing the decline in murder rate with increasing gun-ownership rates.
Fact is, states and countries with low gun ownership rates lead the nation and world in per capita murder rate.
They also lead the world in violent crime rate.
Gun-controlled Britain has a low homicide rate, but it has the highest violent crime rate in the EU, a violent crime rate that is higher than even South Africa, and much higher than the United States.
The only first-world nation with a higher violent crime rate than Britain is Australia, a nation that also banned and confiscated firearms, stripping its people of their ability to defend themselves from violent criminals.
A Congressional Research Service report published in 2013 counted 78 mass-shooting incidents over a thirty-year period in which 547 people were killed.
In other words, on average, 20 people a year die in mass shootings.
There are varying estimates from the CDC, FBI, Harvard and Northwestern studies that say there are between 300,000 and 3,000,000 defensive firearm uses every year, and no shot is fired in 99% of those incidents of successful self-defense.
A lot more than 20 of those 300,000 to 3,000,000 people will wind up being murder or violent crime victims if you deny them the most effective tool for self-defense that there is, a firearm.
So if you like high violent crime and murder rates, by all means advocate taking guns away from law-abiding citizens.
One-third of black babies are now aborted. The dream of Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, to use abortion to exterminate the black race is finally coming to pass. If black lives really mattered theyd be burning abortion clinics to the ground instead of 7-Elevens.
Outsiders cannot fix what is wrong with America's indigenous urban peoples. The systemic maladies of racial separatism, anti-intellectualism, sloth, criminal behavior and perpetual victimhood must be corrected from within their own community. More welfare-reparations cannot overcome their moral and intellectual bankruptcy.
(1) The Gentle Giant boosted a box of cigarillos used for making marijuana blunts from a convenience store and shook the convenience store clerk like a rag-doll. http://i.imgur.com/DYehQUx.jpg (2) Minutes later The Gentle Giant shoved the door shut on a police officer as he attempted to get out of his vehicle. The Gentle Giant then punched the officer and attempted to take his firearm. The firearm discharged during the struggle, wounding the Gentle Giant in the hand, as evidenced by blood and empty cartridges in the vehicle. (3) The Gentle Giant was high on marijuana at the time that he stole a box of cigarillos, roughed up a store clerk, assaulted a police officer and attempted to take his firearm, as evidenced by forensic blood analysis. Is there anything incorrect about the above statements?
...In South Africa during the era of apartheid, white labor unions urged that a minimum wage law be applied to all races, to keep black workers from taking jobs away from white unionized workers by working for less than the union pay scale.
...Some supporters of the first federal minimum wage law in the United States the Davis-Bacon Act of 1931 used exactly the same rationale, citing the fact that Southern construction companies, using non-union black workers, were able to come north and under-bid construction companies using unionized white labor...
...In the United States, the last year in which the black unemployment rate was lower than the white unemployment rate 1930 was also the last year when there was no federal minimum wage law. Inflation in the 1940s raised the pay of even unskilled workers above the minimum wage set in 1938. Economically, it was the same as if there were no minimum wage law by the late 1940s.
...In 1948 the unemployment rate of black 16-year-old and 17-year-old males was 9.4 percent. This was a fraction of what it would become in even the most prosperous years from 1958 on, as the minimum wage was raised repeatedly to keep up with inflation....
There were 726 homicides committed in 2011 alone with hands, fists and feet, and the majority of those homicides were committed by young black males.
The US Supreme Court has decided that a person is any race or gender that they wish to be.
If I as a white male decide that I am a black female, I expect the affirmative action laws to be applied to me just the same as they would be to any black female.
Anybody who disagrees is a racist homophobe who belongs in a prison cell.

Physics is science. Chemistry is science.
Climate-forecasting with computer models is soothsaying.
Climate models cannot possibly encompass all the variables involved in global climate, because they are as infinite as the universe.
We know from chaos theory that, unless your model encompasses every last variable, its predictions will diverge more and more from reality over time.
You do believe in mathematics, right? That's all chaos theory is.
You make fun of people who believe that they are not the center of the universe and that there are things that we do not and cannot know much less control, but it's a lot more insane, not to mention malignantly-narcissistic, to believe that you know everything and can control things like global climate.

After a few human-torchings, stonings and beheadings, "gays" are going to be longing for the good old days when the worst thing they had to worry about was some Christian baker not baking a cake for them.
Government is the greediest, most corrupt and murderous force on Earth (governments murdered 262 million of their own citizens in the 20th century alone*), but there are those who have a religious faith in government and think that government should inherit all wealth.
Do they believe that government officials and employees are somehow intellectually and morally superior to mere peasants who don't work for the government? That somehow they will do something magical with the wealth, other than find a way to get it into their own pockets?
Those people deserve the totalitarian state that's coming.
Man is responsible for 3.4% of that 0.04%
The total amount of CO2 In the atmosphere due to mans production is just 0.00136%
People who spend every cent they can get their hands on the minute they get their hands on it will never have wealth no mater how much of other peoples' money you steal and give to them.
For one of the studies google: criminals target criminals trend shows usatoday In fact if you are not a felon or prior criminal, you and your household members are 25% safer if you own a gun than equal demographic unarmed homes. Indeed your risk of being murdered in the US, if you are not a felon, gang ember or prior criminal is 20% LESS than the developed nation mean.
Five of the 29 members of the Common Core Validation Committee refused to sign a report attesting that the standards are research-based, rigorous and internationally benchmarked. The report was released with 24 signatures and included no mention that five committee members refused to sign it, a highly deceptive and unprecedented act. No member of the Validation Committee had a doctorate in English literature or language and only one held a doctorate in math, and he was one of the five who refused to sign off. Only three of the 29 members had extensive experience writing standards. Two of the three refused to sign off, including the PhD mathematician. In other words, no math expert or English literature expert approved the standards, and only one of the people who wrote it had extensive experience writing standards.
Common Core was not "written by the states."
It was written by five Left-wing activists, one of whom proudly-admitted that his goal was to "end white privilege."
That means, out of 118 million gun owners, 78 or 0.00007% of the gun owning population are potential mass murderers.
Now compare that number to 10,076. According to MADD, thats the number of people killed during drunk driving crashes in 2013 alone. In fact, every day in America, another 28 people die in drunk driving crashes. Every. Single. Day.
If I bolt a corkscrew to my forehead and call myself a unicorn and you agree that I am a unicorn, you are just as loony as I am.
In 1973, The American Psychiatric Association (APA) removed homosexuality as a mental disorder from the APA's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-II).
This decision was a significant victory for homosexual activists and they have continued to claim that the APA based their decision on new scientific discoveries that proved that homosexual behavior is normal and should be affirmed in our culture.
This is false and part of numerous homosexual urban legends that have infiltrated every aspect of our culture. The removal of homosexuality as a mental disorder has given homosexual activists credibility in the culture, and they have demanded that their sexual behavior be affirmed in society.
What Really Happened?
Numerous psychiatrists over the past decades have described what forces were really at work both inside and outside of the American Psychiatric Association---and what led to the removal of homosexuality as a mental disorder.
Dr. Ronald Bayer, a pro-homosexual psychiatrist has described what actually occured in his book, Homosexuality and American Psychiatry: The Politics of Diagnoses. (1981)
In Chapter 4, "Diagnostic Politics: Homosexuality and the American Psychiatric Association," Dr. Bayer says that the first attack by homosexual activists against the APA began in 1970 when this organization held its convention in San Francisco. Homosexual activists decided to disrupt the conference by interrupting speakers and shouting down and ridiculing psychiatrists who viewed homosexuality as a mental disorder. In 1971, homosexual activist Frank Kameny worked with the Gay Liberation Front collective to demonstrate against the APA's convention. At the 1971 conference, Kamney grabbed the microphone and yelled, "Psychiatry is the enemy incarnate. Psychiatry has waged a relentless war of extermination against us. You may take this as a decleration of war against you."
Homosexuals forged APA credentials and gained access to exhibit areas in the conference. They threatened anyone who claimed that homosexuals needed to be cured.
Kamney had found an ally inside of the APA named Kent Robinson who helped the homosexual activist present his demand that homosexualiy be removed from the DSM. At the 1972 convntion, homosexual activists were permitted to set up a display booth, entitled "Gay, Proud, and Healthy."
Kameny was then permitted to be part of a panel of psychiatrists who were to discuss homosexuality. The effort to remove homosexuality as a mental disorder from the DSM was the result of power politics, threats, and intimidation, not scientific discoveries.
Prior to the APA's 1973 convention, several psychiatrists attempted to organize opposition to the efforts of homosexuals to remove homosexual behavior from the DSM. Organizing this effort were Drs. Irving Bieber and Charles Socarides who formed the Ad Hoc Committee Against the Deletion of Homosexuality from the Dsm-II.
The DSM-II listed homosexuality as an abnormal behavior under section "302. Sexual Deviations." It was the first deviation listed.
After much political pressure, a committee of the APA met behind closed doors in 1973 and voted to remove homosexuality as a mental disorder from the DSM-II. Opponents were given 15 minutes to protest this change, according to Dr. Jeffery Satinover, in Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth. Satinover writes that after this vote was taken, the decision was to be voted on by the entire APA membership. The National Gay Task Force purchased the APA's mailing list and sent out a letter to the APA members urging them to vote to remove homosexuality as a disorder. No APA member was informed that the mailing had been funded by this homosexual activist group.
According to Satinover, "How much the 1973 APA decision was motivated by politics is only becoming clear even now. While attending a conference in England in 1994, I met a man who told me an account that he had told no one else. He had been in the gay life for for years but had left the lifestyle. He recounted how that after the 1973 APA decisiion, he and his lover, along with a certain very highly placed officer of the APA Board of Trustees and his lover, all sat around the officer's apartment celebrating their victory. For among the gay activists placed high in the APA who maneuvered to ensure a victory was this man--suborning from the top what was presented to both the membership and the public as a disinterested search for truth."
Dr. Socarides Speaks Out
Dr. Charles Socarides has set the record straight on how homosexuals inside and outside of the APA forced this organization to remove homosexuality as a mental disorder. This was done without any valid scientific evidence to prove that homosexuality is not a disordered behavior.
Dr. Socarides, writing in Sexual Politics and Scientific Logic : The Issue of Homosexuality writes: "To declare a condition a 'non-condition,' a group of practitioners had removed it from our list of serious psycho sexual disorders. The action was all the more remarkable when one considers that it involved an out-of-hand and peremptory disregard and dismissal not only of hundreds of psychiatric and psychoanalytic research papers and reports, but also a number of other serious studies by groups of psychiatrists, psychologists, and educators over the past seventy years..."
Socarides continued: "For the next 18 years, the APA decision served as a Trojan horse, opening the gates to widespread psychological and social change in sexual customs and mores. The decision was to be used on numerous occasions for numerous purposes with the goal of normalizing homosexuality and elevating it to an esteemed status."
"To some American psychiatrists, this action remains a chilling reminder that if scientific principles are not fought for, they can be lost--a disillusioning warning that unless we make no exceptions to science, we are subject to the snares of political factionalism and the propagation of untruths to an unsuspecting and uninformed public, to the rest of the medical profession, and to the behavioral sciences." Dr. Socarides' report is available from the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality: www.narth.com.
The Importance of The DSM.
The DSM(Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) is the most widely used diagnostic reference book utilized by mental health professionals in the United States.
It's a manual by which all diagnostic codes are derived for diagnosis and treatment - every single physician (an estimated 850,000*) in the United States refers to this book in order to code for a diagnoses. In plain English, what does this mean? It means that for over 30 years physicians have been prevented from properly diagnosing homosexuality as an aberrant behavior and thus, cannot, recommend a treatment for these individuals.
Prior to that time, homosexuality had been treated as a mental disorder under section "302. Sexual Deviations" in the DSM-II. Section 302 said, in part: "This category is for individuals whose sexual interests are directed primarily towards objects other than people of the opposite sex, toward sexual acts...performed under bizarre circumstances...Even though many find their practices distasteful, they remain unable to substitute normal sexual behavior for them." Homosexuality was listed as the first sexual deviation under 302. Once that diagnostic code for homosexuality was removed, physicians, including psychiatrists, have been prevented from diagnosing homosexuality as a mental disorder for more than three decades.

Satellite temperature measurements are much more accurate than surface measurements, but you climate change hysterics refuse to use them because it doesn't give you the result you want.
And as if that weren't bad enough, a quiet solar cycle is just around the corner.
Seems like you poor climate change hysterics just can't catch a break.
Makes sense, since your "science" isn't even science.
