The Telegraph – Parents of murdered British students criticise Barack Obama
This should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with Critical Race Theory, of which Obama is a strong proponent.
Washington Times – House rejects Bowles-Simpson, Obama budgets
Buried in the middle of the article is the vote on Obama’s budget: 414-0. Not a single Democrat voted for it, but the White House will still blame Republicans.

Count on the Left to exploit every opportunity to push their anti-gun agenda. Not one to miss such a shot, Gail Collins (NY Times – More Guns, Fewer Hoodies) only manages to demonstrate that she is woefully ignorant or deliberately deceptive.
For example, there is not a single state which hands out CCWs with
no more background check than you need to carry a concealed nutcracker.
That is just the beginning of her repeated mischaracterizations of the current state of gun laws and the positions of gun rights advocates. They appear in almost every paragraph. Please at least get the facts straight before giving us your opinion.
More appalling, she mimics her fellow lefties in the media by convicting Zimmerman even though neither she nor they know all of the pertinent facts. She leaps to the unwarranted conclusion that Martin is the victim in this case. That may be, but on the other hand Zimmerman may be innocent, and alive only due to Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law. Is Zimmerman not granted the presumption of innocence?
The truth is that she doesn’t know which is the case, but that doesn’t slow her down at all in the advancement of her agenda. But she’s not interested in the truth of the case. She just wants to exploit Martin’s death in order to paint a picture of conservative gun owners as hateful, evil, and unreasonable.
I can guarantee you two things:
- If Zimmerman is found guilty, you will hear the NRA—and CCW holders—applaud the system for having served justice. You won’t see that on the nightly news, though, because it doesn’t fit the narrative. Contrary to media-perpetrated belief, gun owners are not fond of those who abuse the right to carry and commit murder or other crimes. Why would we be? It endangers our own right to self-defense.
- If he is found not guilty, you will hear nary a peep from Collins, Sharpton, Jackson, et al, apologizing for having wrongly smeared an innocent man–along with the NRA and responsible gun owners everywhere (to whom an apology is due in either case). Anyone remember Tawana Brawley? Duke lacrosse team?The Jena 6?

You have to love God’s sense of humor. In Matthew, Jesus is running all over the place performing miracles–healing the sick, raising the dead, twice feeding thousands with a handful of fish and bread–all the while teaching in His inimitable way through parables interspersed with incisive “Shock and Awe” indictments of the pious but unholy Pharisees.
Some time shortly after leaving the second Preachin’-and-Po’boys Picnic with the disciples and 4,000 of their closest friends–but without the seven baskets of leftovers, mind you–He has another dust up with the religious elites and warns the disciples about the yeast of the Pharisees. Puzzled, they say to each other, “It’s because we didn’t bring any bread.” (Matt. 16:5-12)
I don’t care who you are. That there’s funny! These guys are seriously dense, and Jesus lets them have it.
Just as I begin to snicker, I have a Homer Simpson, “D’oh!” moment. Yeah, He’s talking to me, too. The disciples may have been simple peasants who were a bit slow on the uptake, but once they got it, they REALLY got it. So well, in fact, that all but two would die rather unpleasant martyr’s deaths.
Maybe some of those “slow” folks–you know, the ones who have less education, haven’t traveled the world, and only think of grammar as the old gal who still bakes pies with real sugar in the filling and butter in the crust–have something to teach us sophisticates about a real, abiding faith that carries you through to the end. Maybe I can drop my pretenses long enough to learn something from them. Just maybe.

Politico – Biden: Bin Laden killing most ‘audacious’ plan in 500 years
And the Left likes to call conservatives ignorant! Good grief. Kudos to Obama for taking out Bin Laden, but what President (other than, say, Clinton) wouldn’t have? It’s not even the most audacious use of American military in the last 100 years, much less the last 500. Whose history books does this clown read?
AP – Report: Just $31B from Buffett rule tax on rich
That’s not even $3B per year. Still think we can even make a dent in the deficit by soaking the rich?
Breitbart – The Vetting: Bell’s Critical Race Theory Promoted in Public Schools
And with the encouragement of Obama’s administration and the expenditure of your tax dollars.
To take from one, because it is thought that his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to every one of a free exercise of his industry, and the fruits acquired by it.

Washington Times – Pool-mageddon avoided — for now
Nothing quite like creating a regulation which can’t possibly be met. Not today. Not in another 60 days. This is exactly what you get when you have unaccountable it-makes-me-feel-good-so-it-must-be-good liberals creating public policy. So in 60 days you’re going to demand that every small-town or mom-and-pop motel close its pool because they can’t afford to install a ramp or non-existent (due to supply) wheelchair lift? If everyone can’t have access then no one can? What an incredibly helpful and mature worldview we get from the Left.
