Rebellion in California Excerpt: “The dissidents from the northern counties who want to secede from the Golden State are “a bunch of Bible-thumpin’, gun-totin’, wild-eyed pistol-wavers.” And that’s how one of their supporters describes them. Welcome to the…”

Federal appeals court rules ‘assault rifles’ protected under 2nd Amendment

JWR’s Comments: The court’s “in common use” argument is laughably specious. Submachine guns, short barreled rifles (SBRs), short-barreled shotguns (SBSes), sound suppressors, and even belt-fed machine guns would be “in common use” today if it were not for Congress enacting the unconstitutional National Firearms Act of 1934, which imposed a local chief law enforcement officer’s consent, fingerprinting, and a draconian $200 federal tax on each machine gun, sound suppressor, SBR, and SBS transfer. ($200 in 1934 dollars would be the equivalent of $3,545 in 2016 dollars!) In 1933, you could mail order a Thompson submachine gun without any governmental paperwork whatsoever, for around $120. But in 1934, owning an unregistered Thompson became a felony. Don’t be fooled by the manipulative political rhetoric. Whenever you hear phrases like “in common use” , “commonsense gun laws”, and “suitable for sporting uses”, beware! The 2nd Amendment is an absolute. Failure to recognize it as such makes it vulnerable to gradual erosion of our rights. The Second Amendment wasn’t written to protect the right to own deer rifles or duck hunting shotguns. Rather, it was intended as a key safeguard to keep the citizenry always armed on an equal footing with any regular army.

It was recently publicized that Hitlery Clinton was paid $675,000 to give three speeches by the investment firm Goldman Sachs. Assuming those lasted one hour apiece (including the preliminary wine and hor’ d ourves chit-chat), that works out to about $225,000 per hour. Nice work, if you can find it. And this is the same Madame Clinton who refers to herself as a defender of “the middle class”. So obviously she must have slaved for many months to write each of those speeches. Thank goodness there was no quid pro quo for Goldman Sachs and this candidate for the highest office in the land. That, of course, would be unthinkable for someone who is so “ethical”.

Anger: Anti-Beyonce Rally Planned For Next Week At NFL Headquarters

HJL’s Comment: Not being much on football, I didn’t watch the Superbowl. When I heard about this controversy I looked it up on YouTube. I’m afraid I couldn’t see much past the inappropriateness of the costumes, the heavy sexual overtones that pervades commercial TV today, and the irritating grating noise that passes for popular music these days. I was so offended by the performance I must have missed the issues others have been talking about. That’s four minutes and 23 seconds of my life that I’ll never get back. Now where did I put that bar of soap; I’m going to have to scrub the old eyeballs for some time to get rid of those images.
