No matter how loudly the Left claims otherwise, the fact is that armed citizens do stop mass killings.
Heroic citizens stopping someone from killing a large number of people don’t seem to be considered news worthy.

Who says women don't belong in combat? If there's a job that needs doing and they can do it, then send them out there.
Even before women were allowed in combat roles, a group of female soldiers gained crucial information for special operations units.

Please, you're telling me it doesn't matter if LT doesn't send the sleeping bag warmer out on patrol because he might lose his?

Sexual politics has no place in combat units, the easiest way to prevent fraternization, which is actual mutiny that should get people shot, is not to allow women or gays to serve in the first place.

Good. Just like the rest of us, cops have an absolute right to defend themselves with deadly fore if they reasonably believe their lives are in danger.
A white Cleveland police officer who stood on a car and shot the vehicle's two unarmed black occupants in 2012 was found not guilty Saturday in their deaths.

Those howling, burning, looting mobs in Ferguson?

They were supposed to be bought and paid for...except that the people who did the buying aren't paying as they promised.
ACORN's successor group in Missouri has been paying protesters $5000 a month to generate civil unrest in Ferguson, the troubled St. Louis suburb where black youth Michael Brown was killed by a white police officer last August. We know this because some of the protesters haven't been paid and, ...

A former Ivy league law professor discusses how affirmative action works - from the inside. He's been there, done that, and seen the racism firsthand.

Yeah, there's a racial motivation to the rioting: black rioters are setting out deliberately to destroy Asian-owned businesses.

It's not about protest. It's about racism - black racism.
When guests at a North Korea Freedom Week dinner in Northern Virginia learned the Korean-American pastor at our table led a Maryland church, they immediately asked about the situation in Baltimore. It was May 1, and National Guard troops had been deployed to the city three days earlier to help quell the unrest sparked by the death of a man in police custody. The pastor let out a deep sigh before responding. A few members of his congregation had l...

+Jay Maynard: How am I assuming that if I just offered exactly such relations as a likely explanation of why some black men would stand to defend their friends' businesses during a civil unrest?

Why aren't men getting married?

Because there's nothing in it for them.
Where have all the husbands gone?

You gotta be alert when in a box on the sidelines of a baseball game, but this guy went above and beyond.

To br fair, it's extremely unusual for a bat to wind up in the stands, period. Balls wind up there once or twice a game. Even then, no heroics are needed; you just need to watch the game and keep your eye on the ball.

Too many facts about the NSA's metadata gathering have been lost under the shrillness of the Left and of the libertarian Right.

I find these arguments laughably bad.  He claims the Nixon-era programs were worse because they were "targeted."  Clearly it's better to have the Stasi than "targeted" spying.  He claims the Nixon-era programs were "against governing law," even while he admits that the current programs may be illegal.  The author of the Patriot Act certainly believe he authorized no such program.

The constitutional argument comes down to warrants being "unconstitutionally vague."  The fourth amendment states that warrants must be "particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."  That the NSA asked for FISC approval for the programs means they realized they can't just dragnet data from the American public of their own volition, even only metadata (contrary to what the author says).  However, getting a judge to sign a warrant that says, "you can do whatever you want" doesn't pass constitutional muster.  Therefore, the program is unconstitutional.

And really, am I supposed to believe that no one at the NSA has a phone book?  Just because this one database only contains phone numbers doesn't mean other databases with personal identifying information don't exist.  It doesn't mean they can't be electronically or even automatically correlated.  And if the NSA is willing to run an illegal an unconstitutional data collection program, why wouldn't they?

Ultimately, though, I agree that the secrecy around the program helps no one and should be eliminated.  The secrecy around the program bothers me more than the details of the program itself.

Damn. What's Chicago going to do if they can't go through bankruptcy to get rid of the mountain of pension debt?

Yet another day in the big Democrat-ruled city...
A few months ago, winning re-election was Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s biggest problem.

No matter how piously the Left says that government is just asking for the rich to contribute, the reality is that government seizes from the rich - and everyone else - by raw, naked force.

+Rob Shinn: Pretty much.  I think the power on levying taxes is the more important one of these two, in fact; as the history of the Hanseatic League shows, commerce can pretty well, albeit perhaps not in the public interest, regulate itself.

A leftist icon is going down in flames for being honest instead of toeing the current leftist orthodox line.

"Remember: when leftists say they want a “conversation about race,” they mean—you shut up and confess your white guilt. Oh, and raise taxes."

Exactly.
I recall back in the 1980s that you could always count on Duke political scientist and “Sovietologist” Jerry Hough to take the wrong line on everything. Reagan was a dunce, the Soviets are normal f...

A very nice, well-kept indoor pistol range. The people are knowledgeable, the range clean and safe. Definitely worth the trip.
