Opinion: Letter to our so-called president

Sorry Paul, we conservatives are not going crazy over Mr. Pitts' commentary. On the contrary. It is quite entertaining to see Progressives in total meltdown mode. The fact is that Democrats are no longer a driving factor in American politics. Republicans are now 33 Republican governors and 67 state house and senate chambers. Republicans will select up to as many as three Supreme Court justices and over 100 federal judges before Trump leaves office...lifetime appointments, if you recall. Do you really think we will go crazy over Mr. Pitts' and the Left's collective panic attack? I'm going to grab a beer and some popcorn and watch! It's going to be funnier than Animal House!

Whitewater group explains how $70 million Clinton Lake project would be funded; it involves help from the public and a new shopping center

Isn't it a bit ironic to use the names Whitewater and Clinton in the same headline? Is history repeating itself?

Opinion: White terrorism vs. Muslim terrorism

Don't hold your breath Mike. It Mr. Pitts' world you are either a progressive or you are a: 1. Racist/terrorist,
2. Homophobe/terrorist,
3. Misogynist/terrorist, or
4. Conservative, gun owning terrorist.

Well, Dorothy, someone is lying.

Didn't all of those publications endorse Hillary in the election?

Editorial: Biased media? Think again

I find this LJW editorial very amusing. I actually posted something about the political bias of the LJW editors on October 23 of last year. From the end of the Democratic Convention until October 23, I lost track of the number of negative Trump articles. I checked for negative Hillary reporting, you might not recall, but she did make news on a couple of minor issues. Care to guess how many of those stories were in the LJW? But here, reread my original post:

"Opinion: Trump has full-blown victim mentality
I just did a search for Hillary Clinton on the LJW site. The last story I can find on her was when she accepted the nomination in August. I guess we can deduce which candidate the LJW is backing in this election." [October 23, 2016 at 3:42 p.m ]

Fair and balanced reporting from the mainstream media? HA!

Lawrence's Sen. Francisco reframing the gun debate

Actually Ben,
Warren v. District of Columbia
District of Columbia Appeals Court
"[t]he duty to provide public services is owed to the public at large, and, absent a special relationship between the police and an individual, no specific legal duty exists."

Lawrence's Sen. Francisco reframing the gun debate

The "wild west" that was predicted when Kansas passed concealed carry in 2006 has yet to materialize in Kansas. Now, in all honesty, the feared old west (read Hollywood) shootouts do occur Chicago...where they have some of the most draconian and under enforced gun laws in the nation. So, once again, it's not the people who make the effort to follow the law who are the problem. The problem is the people are intent on breaking laws anyway that are the problem. Some examples: January, 2002 - VA Appalchian School of Law; October, 2002 - University of Arizona Nursing College; April, 2007 - Virginia Tech; September, 2007 - Delaware State Univeristy; February, 2006 - Illinois University; July, 2008, South Mountain Community College, Phoenix , AZ; October, 2008 - University of Central Arkansas; April, 2009 - Hampton University, VA; July, 2009 - Texas Southern University, just to name a small number of colleges/universities. The list is far from comprehensive. All Gun Free School Zones.

Opinion: America greatest when it’s inclusive

More inclusive, David? Does your version of inclusive include Christians, gun owners, people who refuse to buy into man made climate change, people who don't care if some snowflake gets offended by a misconstrued view of the meaning of an historical artifact? Somehow, I doubt that. We all know what you want your definition of "all [ex]clusive" is.

Opinion: King Henry VIII pays us a royal visit

This piece is as hysterical as it is hypocritical. We just spent eight years under the most narcissistic and egocentric President in the history of the United States. Go find your safe space, Jaime. It's going to be a very traumatic four to eight years for you.
