California Democrats Back Marijuana Legalization (full story)

Newsom continued, “This is not a debate about hippies. This is not a debate about stoners. We can’t diminish this issue or the people involved in this debate by belittling them and trivializing them. Let me be clear. You can be pro-regulation without being an advocate for drug use.”

the GOP will retake the White House in 2016 -- reasons why

Some light entertainment, albeit with statistics.

Republicans will once again have have their President in titular control of this nation, next go-round. Well, okay, it's NOT a lock... but if the GOP announced right this minute they were running a large chunk of anthracite coal, & they skipped the whole convention thing & got that mineral on the ticket, I would give it odds right this minute of better than 1:3 payout.

Is Being A Fanatical Gun Nut A Psychiatric Disorder?

I write this with some hesitation since I'm a gun owner. But aside from taking it backpacking, it hasn't seen the light of day for years. So I wonder about those I dub Gun Nuts who share most, or all, of the following traits. They are fanatical about guns and alleged gun rights. They see guns as their security blanket, objects of worship, and the solution to most problems. They want to loosen or even abolish gun laws. They imagine themselves as under attack when there is no political threat. They allow themselves to be easily manipulated by cynical political groups like the NRA.

"Thomas Jefferson contributed $75 to enlarge the church in 1793, and as president in 1806 signed a congressional charter allowing the church to operate as a business."

Delay obamacare AGAIN and save the Senate?

Dexterous's picture

Oddly missed by the newz outlets and radio talking heads.

Think obamacare is not going to be an election issue? Guess again.

"As vulnerable Democrats press for another unilateral delay of a key provision of ObamaCare, surely many in the party have come to wonder if the law is really worth all of this trouble. If it’s not worth enacting, is it really worth losing the Senate over? But that’s exactly what’s happening as President Obama tries to placate panicking Senate Democrats by carving up his own law. The likely result is less ObamaCare and less Democratic Senators."

Texas pushes back

 Texas has come out strong against Liberal and Progressive Ideas in the Primary elections yesterday.The voted for GOd.and Guns,and to drug test people  receiving welfare benefits.

  God Bless Texas.

Legal Gun owners

“Since 1987, the state of Florida has issued 2.5 million concealed-carry permits,” Raso says in his latest opinion piece for the NRA News network. “Of those, only 168 people have committed firearms crimes. That’s .00672 percent of the total amount issued.”*  Seems like current gun laws work good in Florida.

Sign of God

Recently a sign from God was almost ignored in Portland, OR, but for some ordinary people, of course.

Two young, naive Bald Eagles clutched each other in hours of mortal combat, oblivious to everything but winning.

I'm sure God was glad that someone cared enough to stop the youngsters from tearing the life out of themselves, difficult as it turned out to be.

I was glad that a few people saw an actual sign from God, in my lifetime.

Idaho Addresses Animal Cruelty

Idaho addresses animal keeping it out of sight, out of mind with an Ag-Gag law. What can't be reported disappears.

Retired Monk - "Ideology is a disease"

O'really? and Jarret

Valerie Jerret offered a sit down with Bill O', where he solved all the inner city problems by citing with great diparaging tones Kanye Weeesst, and Jay ZZeeee, (thats how he enunciated) as the cause of all that's wrong.

He is a rehash of the Great Comic Book inquisition*.  and later the FBI detailed investigation of the Kingsmen's Louie Louie. Juvenile delinquents are so easily swayed.
