"Congratulations to Bobby Jindal for his win of the Governor’s office of the state of Louisiana. Governor-elect Jindal’s first act as chief executive of Louisiana is to call an emergency meeting of his state’s assembly."

"The agenda is to clean house of corruption. I have praised Bobby Jindal in my book – Transfer of Wealth – and I am so very pleased at his win. Congratulations, again, Bobby."

"I addressed the aftermath of Katrina, pointing to the utter disgrace of how the Dems had run things to the point of undermining the American way of life. I had pointed to several disgraces during and post-Katrina, and shown how Jindal’s courage has served successfully to begin to turn things around for his state." ...

"The Supreme Court will consider two petitions growing out of the Second Amendment dispute over a District of Columbia ban on private possession of handguns at its Conference on Nov. 9, according to the Court’s electronic docket on Wednesday."

"The two cases are the city's appeal — District of Columbia v. Heller (07-290) — challenging a D.C. Circuit Court ruling ... and a cross-petition by five city residents — Parker v. District of Columbia (07-335) — seeking to join in the case to add their own legal complaints about the city gun control law." ...

"The earliest that an order on the fate of the two cases would emerge is probably Tuesday, Nov. 13. The case, if granted, would probably be heard in February or March."

"The government's terrorist watch list has swelled to more than 755,000 names, according to a new government report that has raised worries about the list's effectiveness."

"... Some lawmakers, security experts and civil rights advocates warn that it will become useless if it includes too many people."

"'It undermines the authority of the list,' says Lisa Graves of the Center for National Security Studies. 'There's just no rational, reasonable estimate that there's anywhere close to that many suspected terrorists.'" ...

"I meet Justin Moon for the first time in Orlando. We are at Shot Show ... Justin holds court at Kahr's booth, where the company's notorious super-subcompact pistols ... are on display. As I look down one of the guns' six-inch steel barrels one afternoon, Justin slides over and shakes his head. 'You don't know much about guns,' he says, 'do you.'"

"... I didn’t realize it then, but I’d inadvertently aimed the gun at his chest. I put it down."

"'When you picked up the gun, your finger went right to the trigger,' he says, picking up one of his own weapons. It's apparently immaterial that the gun isn't loaded and is missing its firing pin ... '... You never put your finger on the trigger,' he continues ..." ...

"The Miami Student editorial board commends these students for being politically active and exercising their constitutional rights to protest against a law they feel is unjust."

The transformation has been rapid and complete. It operates today to protect the rights of property to the detriment of the rights of man.

"The district attorney, Robert M. Morgenthau, was questioned about why the undercover police officer, Sean Sawyer, was not charged after he turned himself in on Monday, 19 hours after the shooting in Upper Manhattan."

"'Where there is a claim of self-defense, as there is in this case, there is usually no immediate arrest,' Mr. Morgenthau said." ...
