What Good Can A Handgun Do Against An Army?

Recall when I said this? Do you suppose this would look like great land armies getting into formation at the edges of great fields of battle and marching towards each other?  What do you think such a messy civil war in America would look like?  Bubba would be wearing a Ghillie suit, shooting a bolt action rifle, or a modern sporting rifle, and after the shot you will never hear from him again – until the next one.  And you’ll never catch him.  Police will have to decide what side to take, and if...

The Brains Behind Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Some of you may have seen this, but for those who haven’t it might be a good primer on exactly where she comes from and who created her.  My only issue with it is that he fails to pull the thread on the Soros money that lies at the root of her success.

Apple ad focuses on iPhone’s most marketable feature — privacy

Apple is airing a new ad spot focused on privacy today in primetime. The spot is visually cued, with no dialog and a simple tagline: Privacy. That’s iPhone. In a series of humorous vignettes, the message is driven home that sometimes you just want a little privacy. The spot has only one line of text otherwise, and it’s in keeping with Apple’s messaging on privacy over the long and short term. “If privacy matters in your life, it should matter to the phone your life is on.” The spot will air t...

"I’ve never seen so much hand movement. I said: 'Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?'... Study it. I'm sure you'll agree."

Said Trump, apparently trying to get us to see crazy when we look at Beto O'Rourke.Here you are:Study it. If you studied it, did you agree with Trump? Yes. Beto seems crazy. Yes, it looks crazy, but Beto's just acting that way. There's a lot of hand movement, but it doesn't look crazy, just bad. Eh. Beto gestures. It's not a problem and it doesn't mean anything. Trump gestures a lot and to good effect. He's trying to inhibit Beto and trip him up.   pollcode.com free pol...

"In Clinton v Jones, the United States Supreme Court held that separation of powers concerns did not preclude a federal lawsuit against a sitting President of the United States..."

"... based on unofficial acts allegedly committed by him before he assumed office. The Court expressly cautioned in that decision that different concerns, including the Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution, might influence the result if such a case were brought against the President in state court. However, the Court did not rule that such a suit could or could not proceed. This matter gives us an opportunity to squarely address the question.... [S]ubjecting the President to a stat...

As a parent, the pun didn’t work for me. The lawsuit relates to Make-a-Wish Nor...
