Sen. Feinstein, the “common thread” isn’t merely guns and ammo. Why do you refuse to take a look at SSRI meds?


US Senator Diane Feinstein (Democrat, California) has recently come out guns blazing, noting the “common thread” between recent mass shootings and the use of high powered assault rifles and high ammo clips.

Never mind the guns she and other vocal libs such as Piers Morgan are attacking number in the millions whilst you can count mass shootings on one or two hands.

Add everything together, make all the necessary caveats, carry the two, and we reach the conclusion that there are somewhere around 3,750,000 AR-15-type rifles in the United States today. If there are around 310 million firearms in the USA today, that means these auto-loading assault-style rifles make up around 1 percent of the total arsenal.

Yes, there’s a lot of gun violence in the US, but the measures being proposed now are even less than a futile gesture.

One thing you can count on, however, is that all of these mass shooters were either on, or had recently come off SSRI medication such as Prozac.

But even then, you have millions upon millions of Americans on SSRIs, and yet, however tragic each and every mass shooting is, still only that handful or two of them.

Sure, do a background check for every legal gun purchase, but be careful on the rest of the liberal proposals.

We all know it’s a leftist’s wet dream to have a world ridded of guns, but that simply is never going to happen. That’s not how our species works.

At best, proposals such as Feinstein’s will make it harder for the good guy, and won’t do a thing to kerb most gun violence, about 3/4 of which is gangbangers and the like (google it if you don’t believe that).

TBH, most of the stuff I’m hearing, from the gun debate to Benghazi, to Obama’s renewed push to combat climate change :roll: is nothing more than a constant media barrage designed to distract America and the world from…

that $16 and a half trillion dollar debt that nobody’s doing anything about.

The new Left: “racist” jokes that actually parody racism, bad. Obvious fat joke cheap shots, OK


Such is the hypocrisy of the Left.

On the one hand, we hear about the increasingly leftist BBC omitting classic segments from the superlative comedy series, Fawlty Towers, produced by and starring, er, leftists.

On the other hand, we have CNN’s Erin Burnett doing a story about FaceBook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerbeg’s endorsement of Republican New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie.

In her intro, she refers to Zuck’s “obese checkbook”.

Weasel all you want, but that was an obvious cheap shot, and a classic case of ever-changing goal posts, opportunism, hypocrisy, selective moralism, and worst of all, partisan comment being passed off as objective journalism.

Not cool for Erin, who’s usually half decent for a CNN host.

Dem threads


Enjoyed watching the POTUS inauguration the other night.

‘Twas interesting to see the CNN commentators tripping over themselves to see who could wax most lyrical.

And when it came to their adulations over the first lady’s garb, well, it reminded me of a certain story.

Perhaps I’m the only person on the planet who thinks this when an adoring media goes on and on (and on and on) about Michelle Obama’s clothes* …

… but I doubt it. :-)

*Or maybe it was their commentary in general …

Occupy Unmasked


It was Andrew Breitbart’s final project before his untimely death.

And the full movie is about to be released.

Meanwhile…

And currently…

Mitt Romney, Jon Stewart, the 47%, and a few sh*ts and giggles along the way


Who doesn’t love a good debate? This one is taken from facebook. It was about Mitt Romney and those entitlement remarks he made that surfaced from the leaked hidden camera video.

It’s a bit long, so I’ll put it below the fold. Hope you enjoy it! :-)

Labor’s dirt machine


They’ve been at it since the beginning of time, and were likely feeding David Marr scuttlebutt for months as he researched his attack on Opposition leader Tony Abbott, and yet the best that they both can up with is that maybe Tony Abbott hit a wall when he was a teenager, as “witnessed” by two people, Abbott haters no less, who weren’t even there.

:roll: :lol:

Sensitive thugs


Sensitive lot, aren’t they, over in northern Africa and the Middle East?

Turn on, say, CNN, and we’re witnessed to violent, inflamed protests in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Iran, Iraq, the Kashmir region, Yemen, Morocco, and Israel and the Palestinian territories.

And why? Well the catalyst for the protests which – no coincidence, surely – began on September 11, are over a crappy, low budget film depicting Mohammed as a thug and pedophile. Most of us would have happily lived out our lives having not the slightest inkling this film ever existed, except that an Egyptian sheik got wind of it, translated the YouTube trailer in to Arabic and, let’s face it, used it to light a fire under the ever-simmering hatred of the West, and the US in particular as the bastion of the West.

The film was ordinary to say the least, but that’s the price you pay for freedom, and in particular, freedom of speech – a cornerstone of free democratic nations (which incidentally, the Left in Australia has managed to dig up). I’d much rather have freedom and be offended once in a while than to live in a country where even freedom of thought is blasphemy, indeed punishable by death.

What we also know – or think we know – is that the bloke who made the film is one Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, FKA Sam Becile; technically a Coptic Christian (they make up around 10% of Egypt’s population), but as information comes to light, it turns out he’s a pretty shady guy with multiple names and social security numbers, has been convicted for narcotics offenses as well as bank fraud.

So basically, he’s a troll – not someone to be liked.

However, what I also don’t like is all the finger-pointing that has gone on “back home”. TBH, I’m not really that proud of my “Bye, Libya” post below (although a number of US lawmakers, both Democrat and Republicans, have called for a washing of hands also). But what really disgusts me is that whilst corpses have been paraded around the streets, and the senseless violence is ongoing, the Left have used this as an opportunity to attack US presidential candidate, Mitt Romney.

Now, for sure, the Right have also used this to attack sitting Democrat President Barrack Obama.

Yet, there is one key difference, it must be pointed out, that does not make what’s good for the goose good for the gander.

Romney has no actual political power, and in no way has been involved in any type of US government decision making when it comes to things such as an effective, appropriate response, coordination with the State Department, and security conditions on the ground which may have at least saved a few important lives.

The opposite is true for Obama. Geneva convention or not (the host country provides most security at embassies and consulates), the situation being what it was leading up to those abhorrent attacks, the Obama administration should have had proper security forces in place.

It did not.

And talk about gaffes in rhetoric – and the Left has been quick to jump on a perceived yet actually non-existent gaffe in Romney’s rhetoric – Obama comes out and says Egypt is neither enemy nor ally; a gaffe which the State Department had to correct and reiterate that Egypt, er, technically is an ally, in the legal definition of the word.

Not that Obama is being punished in the media for that massive faux pas

Double standards? Remember when Obama recently and most irresponsibly inflamed home grown violence by declaring that if he had a son, his name would be Trayvon Martin?

Still, that’s hardly the first example of collective, selective, faux leftist outrage.

But I digress, and fall into the same trap I’m blaming leftists for also doing.

The real bad guy here isn’t Obama. Nor is it Romney. Nor is it that film maker, not in a country that upholds freedom of speech, however offensive.

No, the real bad guys are those thugs who murdered the US Libyan ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens and three others including two former Navy Seals.

The real bad guys are those thugs staging their violent protests all over the middle east and northern Africa.

The real bad guys are people like that sheik who found that obscure video and used it to incite an entire nation, indeed regions, to hatred and violence.

The real bad guys are the ruling Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt who have called for a banning of Freedom of Speech in the West, and who have also called for *cough* peaceful protests this Friday, Islamic prayer day.

While emotions are still running high, can we in the West, on the Left and the Right, please remember who the real bad guys are (hint: it’s not each other).
