    Old And Busted: Dems Want To Ban “Assault” Weapons. New And Hot: Dems Demand “Combat-Style” Weapons Be Banned…

    Tim Kaine used to be my governor and now the asshat is my senator. He is such a liar. This statement really pisses me off because, like the majority of what he says, it’s total b.s.:

    “The horrible shooting at Virginia Tech happened after a dangerous young man illegally bought weapons due to a loophole in the records check system.”

    Bullcrap! What happened was the murderer was mentally ill; he didn’t buy the guns illegally. There were warning signs about his mental state long before the shootings occurred, but they were ignored. Is that the “loophole” to which Kaine is referring? I’m betting the answer is no.

    “But too many gaps still exist, and more than 40 percent of gun sales occur with no check to ensure that purchasers are legally able to possess weapons.”

    We’ve already debunked the 40% lie. I guess he didn’t get the memo.

      They’re making up stories to legitimize the registration for everything. Since most gun crime involves stolen or smuggled weapons, Hardly any involve rifles of any kind, and ZERO involve the use of a mounted bayonet, none of this will change anything. Nor is it intended to.
      “Combat style”…. so much for my WW1 Springfield ’03. That was used in combat.
      On the other hand… if I Duracoat my AR15 in dayglo yellow polka dots would that make it NOT combat “style”?
      The liberals love playing word games. “Saturday night special”, “assault gun”, “cop-killing sniper rifle”… it doesn’t matter. Just like the moslems w/Israel… the liberals will not be satisfied until they have it all.

    Thatcher, Reagan, John Paul: What Real ‘Hope and Change’ Looked Like

    *sigh* I miss the ’80s.

    • Good article! We were just talking about the trifecta of awesome from the 80’s at the dinner table last night. Those were good times for conservatism. One of the kids suggested that we have a different kind of Marxist trifecta now, but I think it’s more than three: Obama, Putin, Gillard, Hollande, Kirchner, etc. We could use some real conservatives right now, starting right here.

    Colorado Sheriff Describes Shock Training to The Blaze: DHS-Bound Official Warned Against ‘Christians Who Take the Bible Literally’

    • I think what pisses me off more than anything about this is the idiot’s implication that we Christians are only upset because we have a “black President.” Really? Are we still blaming it all on racism after all that’s happened? It can’t be because he’s a terrible President who’s killing the country? And he’s a Marxist? And the worst liar ever to occupy the White Hut? Which is saying something after Clinton. Just sayin’.

    Did you hear about this going on in New York? Someone in state government accessing medical records to compare prescriptions with gun permits:

    • Oh, great. With the blank check they’re seeking on background checks, is there really anything they can’t use to deny a permit? Medical records. VOTING registration records. Traffic tickets. Since Darden restaurants, and others, are such big supporters of the administration, maybe they’ll supply your tipping history to the gov’t for use in background checks. Or worse, you could get denied because you had 2 “lobsteritas” once when the posted limit is only one.

      Ruh-roh. You can forget about ever getting a gun permit, now, Missy. 😦

      This guy? He still gets a gun permit, because he’s a Democrat … who donates to the Obama campaign.

  9. Steve wouldn’t go to dinner at the White House right now; that’s for sure. And he would make it clear it had nothing to do with the color of the skin of the half-white guy in the Oval Office.

  10. Wait… How does this kid get his cat to go fishing with him?

    From FaceBook. Guess which one was probably the “d” and which one was the “r”

    This girl is a keeper!!!!
    It happened at a New York Airport. This is hilarious. I
    wish I had the guts of this girl. An award should go to the United
    Airlines gate agent in New York for being smart and funny, while
    making her point, when confronted with a passenger who probably
    deserved to fly as cargo. For all of you out there who have had to
    deal with an irate customer, this one is for you.

    A crowded United Airlines flight was canceled. A
    single agent was re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travelers.

    Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket on the counter and said, “I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS.”

    The agent replied, “I’m sorry, sir. I’ll be happy to try
    to help you, but I’ve got to help these folks first; and then I’m
    sure we’ll be able to work something out.”

    The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that
    the passengers behind him could hear, “DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?”

    Without hesitating, the agent smiled and grabbed her
    public address microphone. “May I have your attention, please?”, she began, her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal. “We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him with his identity, please come to Gate 14”.

    With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically,
    the man glared at the United Airlines agent, gritted his teeth, and said, “F*** You!”

    Without flinching, she smiled and said, “I’m sorry sir,
    you’ll have to get in line for that, too.”
