Who needs more than 7 rounds?

February 15th, 2013 No comments

An unarmed father died earlier this week trying to keep two armed men out of his 11-year-old daughter’s room. You know who could have really used an “assault rifle” with a 30-round magazine? No, tragically, the Left would rather see him dead than able to defend his family.

Across the country an elderly man was attacked by four thugs—all for the $15 he carried. You know who could have used a Glock with 20 rounds? Ah, but the gun grabbers in CA make it virtually impossible for a citizen in L.A. to carry a weapon for protection.

Self defense is a basic human right, folks. The evil among us don’t care what laws you pass—except when they benefit by the disarming of their victims.

Starting Points

February 15th, 2013 No comments

In his State of the Union address (and a follow-up yesterday), Dear Leader said we need to fund preschool and all-day kindergarten for low- and some middle-income families so that,

…none of our children start the race of life already behind.

[Quite laughably, he also claimed this wouldn’t increase the deficit.]

I have a counter proposal that won’t cost a penny. In fact, it will improve educational outcomes, and reduce both crime and poverty—all three of which have the additional benefit of trimming federal and state budgets. It’s very simple, really.

Stop subsidizing illegitimacy and single parenting.

Before the creation of the welfare state in the 1960s, marriage rates were higher, and illegitimacy and poverty rates were lower. Then we made it much easier for poor women to bear children without either the financial responsibility for their support or the presence and participation of the father in the children’s upbringing. Guess what happened as a result?

Look at any inner city and you can see. Urban blight is not an accident, but a direct consequence of government policy at the federal and local levels. When you subsidize something you get more of it. Want less? End the subsidy. Economics 101. Duh.

But Democrats understand this already. Truly effective programs to reduce poverty would end their stranglehold on urban politics because they would reduce dependency on the welfare programs on which the Left thrives. Hence the continued subsidization of poverty.

Poor kids don’t need preschool. They need mom and dad under the same roof working together to provide for them. Instead of spending so much effort replacing literature and history with “Lesbian Readings” and “The Sins of Our Founders,” we should be telling our young people, “Don’t want to spend your life poor? Finish school, get married, have children…in that order.”

That will have a much bigger positive impact on their lives and our nation than having them start preschool a year or two earlier.

Notable Quotables #12

February 12th, 2013 No comments

I can’t get excited by the question of whether Senator Robert Menendez had sex with a prostitute in Central America. It is her word against his—and when it comes to a prostitute’s word against a politician’s word, that is too close to call.

Notable Quotables #11

Voters aren’t children, but too many of them have the childish notion that the best policies are those that pander to their immediate desires. The challenge for the GOP is to persuade them to put away childish things.

LA Times Women delivering newspapers in Torrance shot in manhunt for ex-cop
NBC Lawyer: LA police shot delivery women without warning

These women were shot without warning simply because they were driving a truck the police thought resembled the suspect’s. (It was the wrong make, model, and color!) Remind me again why police can be trusted with guns but I can’t.

Lefty LOL #1

At the National Prayer Breakfast, Dear Leader said,

Those of us with the most power and influence must be the most humble.

I don’t care who you are. That’s funny right there.

Salt Lake Tribune Armed guard disarmed teen in Atlanta school shooting, says police chief
Wait, you mean the NRA was right?

Meanwhile the police waste our money…
Washington Examiner Alexandria cops bust 10-year-old for bringing toy gun to school

The 10-year-old did not point it at anyone or threaten to shoot it…It was silver and had a black handle. It also had a orange tip that went into the barrel, showing that no ammunition was coming out of it.

Oh, so it was obviously a toy rather than a weapon? And you’re arresting him? We’ve become a nation of and led by fools.

The wonders of ObamaCare

February 6th, 2013 No comments

The new IRS regs for determining whether an individual or family is required to purchase health insurance or pay their ObamaCare tax is 73 pages long. That’s not a typo. You know you’ve enacted execrable legislation when there’s zero chance the average citizen can even figure out if he’s obeying the law. You also know it’s a terrible law when the CBO tells us it will do the opposite of what its proponents lied told us it would.
