Gun Rights: The Native-American Perspective

Liberal arts professor, columnist and member of the Comanche Nation David Yeagley speaks to the validity of the 2nd amendment from the Native-American viewpoint. Faux-Cherokee Ward Churchill should be as honest.

Next Supreme Court Nomination: We're Watching....

While Roberts prepares to be sworn in, President Bush's next SCOTUS nomination is already boning up to be an interesting event. However, his decision will determine much more than a potential replacement for O'Connor. Huge numbers of the active conservative base will be watching very closely. If he selects Edith Jones or Janice Rogers Brown, he'll win back support from conservatives who are disappointed with his poor immigration performance and penchant for out of control spending. If he chooses an unacceptable candidate, like his buddy Alberto Gonzales, it will signal the beginning of the end of conservative support for the GOP and perhaps lead to big losses in '06. NOTE TO GOP: don't say you weren't warned.

Update

Bush's choice of Harriet Miers to replace SDO absolutely sucks. In fact, it's just about as bad a choice as this.

Blanco Gets A Pass

Yep, Blanco gets a pass from senate Republicans on Katrina. This is just one reason why I'm leaving the Republican Party. Or perhaps more accurately, I'm not leaving the party, the party is leaving me.

Katrina's Lesson

Erich Pratt makes the case for one of Katrina's most valuable lessons. As the amazingly obtuse NOLA city administrators were forced to learn, you can't prevent people from providing for their own defense.

Free Speech Pledge

If the FEC makes rules that limit my First Amendment right to express my opinion on core political issues, I will not obey those rules. Constitutional Conservative proudly presents 'the bird' to McCain-Feingold.

Sen. Chuck Schumer: Identity Thief?

I've always held the opinion that Chuck Schumer is one of the smarmiest scoundrels in modern politics. Michelle Malkin outlines the most up-to-date info on the developing story.

Pack Your Bags, Bette. There's A World Full Of Other Places To Live Out There...

Has-been Bette Midler, John Kerry fund-raiser, hopeless liberal and champion of the stupid, unleashed quite a tirade in the direction of the current administration while speaking at the 'Big Apple to the Big Easy' Katrina benefit concert. I would suggest to moonbat-supreme Midler, who only attracts attention when her name is billed alongside other infinitely more talented performers, that if you are that dissatisfied with the country, please leave. And don't let the door hit you in your adipose rear-end.

'We Are Revolutionaries'

Charley Reese articulates the meaning of the Constitution in less time than it takes to drink a cup of coffee. This is what schools don't teach, liberals can't comprehend and politicians don't want you to know. MUST READ!!!

Guard The Borders Blogburst

Euphoricreality hits on one of the 'unintended consequences' of Katrina. And the article doesn't mention that a large number of Border Patrol agents were pulled from their regular duty and reassigned to the areas hit by Katrina (a move that was heavily advertised on the MSM...). I would be curious to know how much this move has increased the usual percentage of illegal entry?

Mayor Bright Has The Right Idea

Montgomery Alabama mayor Bobby Bright makes no apologies for his comments regarding firearms.
In my opinion, people need to buy a weapon, buy a gun, educate themselves on how to use that gun and they need to use that weapon to protect themselves from the criminal element out there, I will not back away from that concept. It is a sensitive issue. It is simply me as the mayor wanting and caring enough about our citizens here to tell them this may be the best way they can help us protect themselves.

This is especially so, since law enforcement is not legally responsible for public safety.

Hi.

I was invited to blog on Mark's blog here so let's see just how much trouble I can make.

New Orleans Gun Confiscations Creating More Victims?

Perhaps it is. Looks like New Orleans can't get anything right. The only way this city will really recover is if they get rid of this incompetent troglodyte of a mayor. Then ditch the incompetent governor.

'Crescent of Embrace'???

I just picked up on this via Michelle Malkin's blog. Didn't anybody pick up on the crescent/Islam relationship? Didn't this occur to any of the victim's family members? Even if it's an accident, I don't think this design is acceptable.

Update

Here is a follow-up to the above captioned article (yeah, I was 'interviewed'). OK, let me see if I have this straight: a design firm creates a memorial that they know will be open to public interpretation and scrutinized for everything from esthetics to a 'deeper meaning'. Then the architects are surprised when some people interpret the design as an Islamic crescent? Then the apparent solution is simply call it something other than a 'crescent' and the problem will go away? Interesting. Tom Sokolowski, a Stage II jury member and director of the Andy Warhol Museum, seems to think that those who see the Islamic symbolism and are offended by it are "delusional" and that "To take this small-minded, bigoted view is disgusting and repellent." So Tom, according to you, art is interpretive as long as it's your interpretation and anything deviating from your view is crazy, stupid, racist and otherwise unacceptable? Hey Tom, the dry cleaners just called... your Brown Shirt is ready.

UN Smack Down

The latest installment of the Volcker report doesn't pull any punches with regard to the responsibility for the Oil For Food scam. Don't think for a second that 'Oil For Food' is by any means unique among the UN's multitude of ongoing 'programs'. If not for the invasion of Iraq, Oil For Food would have gone unnoticed and the UN bureau-hacks would be lining their pockets to this very minute.

Cars Kill More Cops Than Guns

... and SAF wonders where's Ted Kennedy and why isn't he demanding tort litigation against auto makers the same way he's advocating law suits against firearms manufacturers? My statement is, as always, 'more people have been killed by Ted Kennedy's car than my gun'.

New Orleans: A Wakeup Call For Anti-Gunners

In the wake of Katrina, the MSM is long on Bush-blaming, but short on substantive analysis. This provides the best post-Katrina advice I seen so far. Item 6 deserves special mention:
6. When politicians tell you that only law enforcement and police should own guns in today's "modern society", tell them to go to hell... or New Orleans. There's no difference between either at this point in time.

New Orleans Citizens Defending Themselves

Here is the first reference I've been able to find regarding New Orleans citizens forced to rely on themselves for their own protection. When your city is in chaos, a quarter of the police force has deserted and nobody from the state or local governments are anywhere, what else can the residents of New Orleans do but fall back on the second amendment?

How Often Do Americans Use Guns For Defensive Purposes?

Larry Elder answers the question ‘How often do Americans use guns for defensive purposes’? He provides the sort of substantive evidence that is characteristically absent from the works of the oft-fictitious Michael Moore.

Navy Will Keep Prayer Traditions

Unlike their buckling Air Force colleagues, the US Naval Academy has told the ACLU to take a hike by declining to remove their prayer tradition, which pre-dates the Civil War. Good. It's about time. And until the ACLU is totally outlawed, anything that they don't like is a good thing in my book.
