And, of course, who can forget his record as one of the most corrupt governors in the history of the state?

"Once again we see the leftist spin and victim mentality turning the freedom to assemble into a discrimination issue. Again, never mind the fact that no court cases were cited much less any background on those cases. All that matters is that the NCWO and Burk want their way and they want it NOW - or else!"

"First, biographical information about the TIA project leaders ...disappeared from the Defense Department's site last month. A mirror that one activist created from Google's cache shows the deleted information included four resumes listing past work experience but no addresses or contact information." ...

"Then, sometime in the last week, the TIA site shrank still more and some links ceased to work. The logo for the TIA project--a Masonic pyramid eyeballing the globe--vanished..."

"Yet it now appears that the military contractors, united with allies in the Pentagon and Congress in a group known around Washington as the Iron Triangle, stood up to Mr. Rumsfeld — and won. Weapons systems that had been on the chopping block have been saved, and others that many critics say should be consigned to the dustbin of history are about to receive millions, and in some cases billions, of taxpayers' dollars."

"A massive public surveillance system under development by the Pentagon - called 'Total Information Awareness' - could help lay the framework for a police state in America and should be halted immediately, Libertarians say.

" 'This is Big Brother on steroids,' said George Getz, Libertarian Party communications director. 'The government of a free country shouldn't want surveillance powers like these. And the fact that the government wants them is proof that it shouldn't have them.' "

Yes, rapists do indeed prefer their targets to be unarmed.

-------
"On a desolate fringe of a Queens, N.Y., park, a gang of homeless men set upon a woman and dragged her into their squalid encampment, raping her for two hours while police began a frantic search. The 42-year-old victim finally was rescued when a police dog picked up her scent, tracked her to the hobo jungle and sank his teeth into one of the men who brutalized her, authorities said."

"While not all of these incidents are gang-related, they have a common thread: They all involve young people and shootings. Experts say the weak economy, the release of gang members from prison and the fact that law-enforcement officials are devoting more attention to terrorism than to street crime all contribute to the increase in youth violence." ...

"Last week in a court opinion that went on for 86 pages, a federal appeals court ruled that people do not have a constitutional right to keep and bear arms."

"That decision means California's law against making or selling assault weapons can stay on the books."

"San Diego's 10 says that law is not only legal, it's right."

"People can argue the need or desire to own a gun until their are blue in the face."

"But you will never convince us there is a need for an individual to own a grenade launcher."

Someone needs to educate KGTV General Manager and Vice President Darrell Brown that the definition of "right" precludes anyone from justifying their "need" to socialist swine.

"The BB gun, like the classic Red Ryder celebrated in a popular holiday film, is a traditional Christmas gift that has always come wrapped in a certain risk. Now the toy carries a threat that has nothing to do with putting an eye out: a $500 fine and two months in jail."

" 'We're dealing with a different element now,' Council President Sheila Dixon said. 'If you give it to a minor and we trace it back, that person will be fined or charged with a crime.' "

"The United States edited out more than 8000 crucial pages of Iraq's 11,800-page dossier on weapons, before passing on a sanitized version to the 10 non-permanent members of the United Nations security council. Allegations made by US Secretary of State Colin Powell that 'omissions' in the document constituted a 'material breach' of the latest UN resolution on Iraq. Bush gave the go-ahead to double the current 50,000 US troops deployed in the Gulf."

"Why, if carrying guns is so safe, so necessary, such a great tool for stopping crime, and such a deep-rooted constitutional right, are some state lawmakers afraid to let concealed handgun carriers near them during the day?" -- Because they're paranoid loons, who don't trust the constituents who elected them to office in the first place? Just a guess.

Saddam could use NRA on his side

"Under the prevailing NRA philosophy that no amount of weapons is too many, Hussein's membership will also entitle him to resume full production of tanks, but only if they are henceforth classified as 'Light Trucks' under U.S. DOT specifications applicable to SUVs. The resulting loss in fuel economy will deplete Iraq's oil surplus, thus rendering moot any question about continued sanctions against Iraqi oil exports."

Yes, let's not allow a little thing like a Constitutional right stop states from enacting whatever gun control laws they want. What is a Constitution, after all? It's only the law of the land.

It's not about addressing the root cause of the suicide; it's all about suing the city for not doing more to stop it. Just follow the money trail.

"The city ...recently beefed up its firearms ordinance to ban minors from brandishing toy guns that look too real. Realistic toy guns are often used in hold-ups, and for years have concerned the nation's police officers. But in recent months, Carrollton Police Chief David James said, teenagers -- some of them gang members -- have increasingly been found with replicas too difficult for his officers to distinguish as fake from afar, placing them and the officers at greater risk."

"For our collective failure to rein in the butchery, Chicago perennially boasts the highest murder rate of the nation's biggest cities. The best, most enduring ways to cut that intolerable rate are to improve the educations, resources and job prospects of those who now are tugged into dangerous lifestyles. Tougher federal gun laws also would help, as would extensive drug rehabilitation to quell the persistent demand for narcotics."

Original title: Coffee, Tea, or Should We Feel Your Pregnant Wife’s Breasts Before Throwing You in a Cell at the Airport and Then Lying About Why We Put You There?

"Later I found out that in addition to touching her swollen breasts – to protect the American citizenry – the employee had asked that she lift up her shirt. Not behind a screen, not off to the side – no, right there, directly in front of the hundred or so passengers standing in line. And for you women who’ve been pregnant and worn maternity pants, you know how ridiculous those things look. 'I felt like a clown,' my wife told me later. 'On display for all these people, with the cotton panel on my pants and my stomach sticking out. When I sat down I just lost my composure and began to cry. That’s when you walked up.' "
