Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Not to beat a dead horse (and yes, I know this horse is dead), but just wanted to point out that riders from Reston are paying $17 a day for parking and rail. Imagine how much it will be riding all the way from Ashburn? This is looking like the waste that those of us who opposed it said it would be.

Oh, and WMATA is considering another fare increase…

Well, at least the developers will be happy

I have very little information and will post this article for the time being. I wanted to be the first to condemn the gun that did this. It appears that way too many bad guns are floating around in America. This gun took a 20 year old boy hostage and made him shoot other youngsters. It even made the boy ask students what religion they were before the ban gun blasted them. In the end, the boy being held hostage by the bad gun was forced to point it so that the gun shot at police. The police shot back and killed the poor hostage boy but the bad gun is still very much alive and will probably serve out its years in a lab somewhere instead of seeing the inside of a metal shredder. Unfortunately there were no good guns in the building to stop the bad gun’s rampage. These bad guns need to be found and die. Taking people hostage and making them pull the triggers on these bad guns have to stop. I wish that this incident never happened but you never know when a bad gun will show up and cause this type of havoc. Maybe the bad gun wouldn’t have taken this boy hostage if it knew that there were good guns near by. I’m sure that the Dem governor of Oregon, Congress, Obama and Lynch will be condemning these bad guns quickly and move forward to capture them. Unfortunately, bad and good guns look the same and will be caught in the cross fire (no pun intended. Well, maybe). What can be done?

Wait. What? They are bombing Free Syrian forces? That can’t be right. Here, let me look this up. Oh shit! Are you kidding me? So the Russians lied and are still lying and that buffoon Kerry and Obama do nothing? If it was other countries that this happened in, Kerry would have been thrown off a 20 story building to the street below and Obama would have been jailed, awaiting trial for crimes against the state and humanity. But not in this country because stupidity and naivety in our administration is lauded and hailed.

By the time these clowns finish their tenure, America will be so hated and hog tied that we will never regain prominence and standing in the world again. Weren’t we considered the beacon and shining light of Democracy, that all other countries wanted to emulate? If we go socialist, will the other small bastions of freedom follow suit in short time? Does anyone have a contact for the new Sons of Liberty? I think the time is way past due.

Look at the following video. One has to admit that this was a brilliantly executed piece of propaganda that played right into the outrage machine’s hands. The liberal hivemind was off and running to blame all whites for being racist (except for them of course)

For those that didn’t bother to watch the video, this is a summary of the timeline


So you have a kid tempting fate. A Muslim kid who did the usual “peace be on you if you aren’t an infidel and may your white rug remain unstained” greeting while he did the liberal TV show round robin. What did he do? He built a clock and took it to school. He showed a teacher who told him not to show it around cause it looked like a bomb but the kid didn’t listen. Why not? Tempting fate? Seeing what he could get away with and report back to his handlers? This was a clock attached to a metal briefcase. He knew what he was doing and the school did what it was suppose to do. Except this case is unusual as the kid was released because it wasn’t a gun finger or gun pop tart. And, of course, Obama thinks it’s cool and invites him to the WH with his “clock”. Lively discussion on another thread about refugees and ISIS entering this and other countries. Seems like this would be an example of what kids could do with ill intent. Like I said, maybe he is testing the waters. I wonder if he’ll finish his “clock” before he pays Obama that visit? Only time will tell! Get it? Time will tell? Boy, I crack myself up.

Indeed, it seems that most science is not settled.

If science that actually follows the Scientific Method — with repeatable experiments and control groups — can be so “un-settled”, how can climate “science”, with no experiments whatsoever, and no control groups whatsoever, possibly be “settled”?

Jeb Bush misunderstands the Constitution.

COLBERT: Well, the right to have an individual firearm to protect yourself is a national document, in the Constitution, so shouldn’t that also be applied national —

BUSH: No. Not necessarily… There’s a 10th amendment to our country, the Bill of Rights has a 10th amendment that says powers are given to the states to create policy, and the federal government is not the end all and be all. That’s an important value for this country, and its an important federalist system that works quite well.

Let’s look at the actual amendments in question:

Second Amendment
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Tenth Amendment
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

In McDonald v. Chicago (2001), the Supremes “incorporated” the Second Amendment, which means it applies to the States as well as to the feral government, thanks to the 14th Amendment.

This overrides the Tenth Amendment, because the laws proposed by the gun-bun kooks are “prohibited by [the Constitution] to the States”.

And what, exactly, are we talking about, anyway? Mental health checks:

BUSH: [Florida has] a requirement of background checks, a seventy-two hour waiting period…. We’re not violating any Second Amendment rights. In fact, Florida would be considered a Second Amendment, pro-gun State. Gun violence is way down. But we have simple check to make sure that people who are criminals are not accessing guns, and I think the next step is to figure out ways to make sure that we can know if people have mental health issues, which is really the common denominator of a lot of these violent, tragic cases, where people aren’t getting access to mental health and we don’t even know if they have real issues.

Again, Bush “misunderestimates” the Constitution.

Fifth Amendment
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

And yet it seems that Jeb advocates depriving people of their Second Amendment rights without such “due process of law.”

One last thing. If someone is so mentally ill that the court declares that he cannot have a gun, then he is too mentally ill to have a vote.
