"Bring It On!"

To paraphrase John F. Kennedy, if the aristocrats make peaceful and necessary change impossible, they will make violent resistance inevitable. It’s not a war they can win, but if it’s a war they are too foolish and arrogant to avoid, bring it on.

Ohio Professor Offers Gun-Control Solution: "Storm NRA HQ & Make Sure There Are No Survivors"

“Look, there’s only one solution. A bunch of us anti-gun types are going to have to arm ourselves, storm the NRA headquarters in Fairfax, VA, and make sure there are no survivors,” adjunct professor James Pearce wrote in a Facebook post on June 13. “This action might also require coordinated hits at remote sites, like Washington lobbyists. Then and only then will we see some legislative action on assault weapons. Have a nice day.

NRA Furious After California Passes "Draconian" Gun-Control Laws, Limits Assault Weapons

“Gov. Jerry Brown today signed a Draconian gun control package that turns California’s law-abiding gun owners into second-class citizens,” said Amy Hunter, a spokesperson for the NRA. "The governor and legislature exploited a terrorist attack to push these measures through even though the state’s already restrictive laws did nothing to stop the attack in San Bernadino." “This makes California the most anti-gun state in America,” said Amy Hunter, a spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association.

No Fly No Buy: Obama's Last Ditch Effort To Cripple The Second Amendment

There’s one thing that all gun grabbing politicians have in common. They are all quite adamant that they don’t want to take your guns. At a recent Town Hall meeting, Obama was put on the spot by gun store owner, who asked him why he wants to restrict gun use for law-abiding citizens. “First of all, the notion that I or Hillary or Democrats or whoever you want to choose are hell-bent on taking away folks’ guns is just not true,” he claims “And I don’t care how many times the NRA says it.” Obama then goes on to make the case for restricting gun ownership for people who find themselves on the no fly list, and cites an example of someone who has been visiting ISIS websites but is still allowed to buy firearms.

Prescription Pain-Killers: "Far Riskier" Than Gun Ownership

One of the most beat to death gun control arguments is “Your odds of dying go WAY higher if you have a gun in the home! No one should own guns, guns are deadly!” Now replace the word “gun” with “opioid-based painkillers” – yes, I mean the Percocets, Vicodins, Oxycontins, and all the others. Now your argument is somewhere between 5 and 107 times as pertinent, depending on the classification of suicide, and addiction/accessibility.

Censored, Surveilled, Watch-Listed, & Jailed: The Absurd Citizenry Of The American Police State

With the help of automated eyes and ears, a growing arsenal of high-tech software, hardware and techniques, government propaganda urging Americans to turn into spies and snitches, as well as social media and behavior sensing software, government agents are spinning a sticky spider-web of threat assessments, behavioral sensing warnings, flagged “words,” and “suspicious” activity reports aimed at snaring potential enemies of the state. It’s the American police state’s take on the dystopian terrors foreshadowed by George Orwell, Aldous Huxley and Phillip K. Dick all rolled up into one oppressive pre-crime and pre-thought crime package.

Secret Service Denies 44,000 Signatories Right To Bear Arms At RNC Convention

Following the amassing of more than 44,000 signatures petitioning for the right to open-carry during the RNC convention in July, The Hill reports The Secret Service released a statement saying that "only authorized law enforcement personnel" working with the agency will be allowed to carry firearms inside protected areas. Petitioners reacted angrily to the decision, "this is a direct affront to the Second Amendment and puts all attendees at risk." The way this cronyist campaign is going, guns are the last thing the GOP should be worrying about.

Life And Times During The Great Depression

I thought the Depression was going to go on forever. For six or seven years, it didn’t look as though things were getting better. The people in Washington DC said they were, but ask the man on the road? He was hungry and his clothes were ragged and he didn’t have a job. He didn’t think things were picking up.”

Washington Post Ran 16 Negative Stories On Bernie Sanders In 16 Hours

The Washington Post was sold in 2013 to libertarian Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who is worth approximately $49.8 billion. Despite being ideologically opposed to the Democratic Party (at least in principle), Bezos has enjoyed friendly ties with both the Obama administration and the CIA. As Michael Oman-Reagan notes, Amazon was awarded a $16.5 million contract with the State Department the last year Clinton ran it.
