A teenage hunter in Montana is facing a school hearing in a few days that could derail her college plans, career hopes and even risk her identification as a "domestic terrorist" after she inadvertently parked in a school parking lot with a hunting rifle locked in a case inside her car trunk.

GOA had managed to win some minor victories in the fight over this legislation last year. At that time, the very-liberal Slate magazine lamented that GOA had won a skirmish over ObamaCare:
Score one for the Gun Owners of America, a lobby group positioned well to the right of the National Rifle Association…. [T]o pacify GOA, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid [has inserted into the health care bill] a section titled "Protecting 2nd Amendment Gun Rights" [which prevents the] disclosure or collection of any information relating to gun ownership. (Slate, December 20, 2009.)
But even after being "cleaned up" for some of its anti-gun problems, the ATF can still use ObamaCare to troll a federal database for your medical information. It can identify people with common ailments such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) -- and take away their guns by sending their names to the FBI as "prohibited persons."
For these and other reasons, GOA is still committed to repealing the anti-gun ObamaCare law.
How about a Constitutional amendment which would add a section to Article I (the Article which deals with the Congress) and states something like: "Congress shall make no law without an accompanying expiration date"
That goes for programs, spending, taxes, loopholes, set-asides and anything else that Members of Congress, Senators and their staffs cook up just because they're allowed to.
And, in the same Amendment, an Article II (the Executive) addition: "The President [and by extension his appointees] shall promulgate no rule or regulation without an accompanying expiration date"
My posted comments --- The House controls the purse strings. Funding is control. We need to shut down their phone lines in January demanding they de-fund all the communism: IRS, BATFE, EPA, Dept. of Education, National Propaganda Radio, paying farmers to grow weeds instead of crops, and on and on...
It will take more than a few elections cycles to fix this mess if it can be fixed. Think Normandy.

Meese: Southern Poverty Law Center 'Despicable' for Naming Conservative Organizations ‘Hate Groups’
Last week, the Southern Policy Law Center announced that it was going to
classify the Family Research Council and 12 other organizations as “hate
groups” because of their positions on homosexuality.
Among the groups being designated by the SPLC are the American Family Association, Concerned Women for America, the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission, Coral Ridge Ministries, Family Research Institute, Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, Illinois Family Institute, Liberty Counsel, MassResistance, National Organization for Marriage and the Traditional Values Coalition.
The SPLC said these organizations will be named to its "hate group" watch list.
My posted comments --- Good, now that the commie front groups are
attacking the more 'mainstream' conservatives maybe they'll wake up to
how evil Morris Sleeze and his ilk have been all along.
They should be escorted to the coast and issued a leaky rowboat and a broken oar and told not to return upon pain of death. It will take more than a few elections cycles to fix this mess if it can be fixed. Think Normandy.

Mexican gun control laws limit citizens to owning smaller-caliber weapons and a handful of bullets for home defense, but group members said they were not going to leave themselves vulnerable and outgunned.

That's what the "Liberal"(commie) freaks have long wanted here. Funny that this commie rag would include such a fact.

House Democrats push through bill to legalize children of illegals
Riding a late White House push and driven by impassioned pleas by children of illegal immigrants, House Democrats on Wednesday night forced through a bill that would legalize hundreds of thousands of children and young adults brought here illegally by their parents.

Pearl Harbor was no surprise
True history is not served if all that is remembered about December 7 is
that it is the 61st anniversary of Japan’s surprise attack on Pearl
Harbor. On that day America lost 18 naval vessels including eight
battleships, 188 airplanes, over 2,000 servicemen — and its innocence
about government lies, coverups, and deceit.
Hundred of books have been written about that fateful day, and yet only a few have dared to expose the whole story. And for the most part, those titles and authors remain unknown even today. A major first effort to understand the relevance of the attack on Hawaii in light of world history was undertaken by Harry Elmer Barnes in his magnum opus Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace. In his piecing together of history to build his conclusion that Roosevelt knew the attack was coming, Barnes quoted Eleanor Roosevelt on the day after the attack: “They hit us harder than we expected.” John Toland wrote in his The Rising Sun about the alleged “mistake” that led to the attack on Pearl. James Perloff’s The Shadows of Power: The Council on Foreign Relations and the American Decline, published in 1988 and updated in 2002, explained the goals and methodology of the men and organizations pulling the strings of political power and gave the serious student of history the background needed to understand the final and most complete summary of what happened in December of 1941: Robert B. Stinnett’s The Day of Deceit.

Fort Lauderdale breaks cold record for Dec. 7
South Floridians woke up Tuesday morning to temperatures hovering around
the very low 40s that sometimes felt like the mid-30s because of the
wind chill factor.
In Fort Lauderdale, a low temperature record of 42 degrees for Dec. 7 that had been in place for 169 years was broken, said Dan Gregoria, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Miami.
"It was at 7:24 a.m. when the temperature reached 40 degrees," Gregoria said.

Sheeple now paying a high price for dealing with the banksters and their shysters
People have always loved to complain about their
banks. The push-button circus that passes for customer service. The
larding on of fees. But the false foreclosure cases are hardly the usual
complaints. These homeowners paid their mortgages — or loan
modifications — on time. Some even paid off their loans. Worse, those on
the receiving end of a bad foreclosure claim tell similar stories of
getting bounced from one bank official to the next with no resolution
while the foreclosure process continues apace.
Many have to resort to paying a lawyer, even after presenting documentation. They say they have to sue not only to stop the wrongful foreclosure but also to attempt to win back their costs.
There are no official statistics for these homeowners, but lawyers, real estate agents and consumer advocates say their ranks are growing. In November, during foreclosure hearings on Capitol Hill, senator after senator scolded the banks about wrongful foreclosures. They said their offices were deluged with complaints from people who had done everything right but were being treated by banks as if they had done everything wrong. And the Florida attorney general's office is also investigating the issue as part of its foreclosure probe.

Best Christmas story ever - via email
When four of Santa's elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as
fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the Pre-Christmas pressure.
Then Mrs. Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa
When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, Heaven knows where.
Then, when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered.
Frustrated, Santa went into the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drunk all the cider and hidden the liquor. In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found the mice had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom.
Just then the doorbell rang, and an irritated Santa marched to the door, yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas tree.
The angel said very cheerfully, 'Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't this a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?'
And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.
Not a lot of people know this.
Quote for the times
"Now that I look back, I realize that a life predicated on being obedient and taking orders is a very comfortable life indeed. Living in such a way reduces to a minimum one's need to think." ~ Adolf Eichmann (1906-1962)
"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should
not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all
experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while
evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms
to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and
usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to
reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their
duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their
future security." -
The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America,
Adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776
(To the Founders, 'state' meant independent sovereign nation state,
that was voluntarily entering into the union and could theoretically un-volunteer later.)
