The man who wants to ban or restrict certain 2nd Amendment rights, without banning trucks or placing restrictions on the Muslim religion, now says that he wants us to maintain our way of life...

“We cannot give in to fear or turn on each other or sacrifice our way of life. We cannot let ourselves be divided by religion, because that’s exactly what the terrorists want,” Obama said, pledging to be “vigilant” in defending security and liberty.

I hold Obama to this standard when trying to regulate or ban guns in wake of the Orlando attack.

As a side note, Obama seems to be more emotional and ready to fight when the French were attacked rather than American gays... just makin' a note of the apparent inconsistency...
President Obama pledged to “destroy” ISIS following the heinous terror attack at a Bastille Day celebration in France — and used remarks to diplomats at the White House to defend …

Or imagine a world where the president decides to uphold then law. You know, like not dismissing civil rights violations by armed new black panther thugs at polling places... or a president who presents strawman like

Imagine if you are a police officer and you are trying to sort out who is shooting at you and there are a bunch of people who have got guns on them,”

Not like those cops had to sift through law abiding citizens.

Obama, attending a NATO summit, says the weapon in the car of Philando Castile contributed to his fatal shooting by an officer.

Notwithstanding the fact that this is something expressly prohibited by law, is it a $30 mil waste of money? A felony conviction usually disqualify applicants for jobs with the employers - or at least from most positions of trust. That should change for some people, and particularly the civil litigation attorneys who hold employers liable for their employees. This pilot program makes little sense from a business risk perspective to hire. This make the program very questionable at the outset.

There may be occupations more conductive to post-prison occupation. This article doesn't discuss it.

I actually would support the program for those having paid the societal debt. They may need an additional way to make money upon reentry. There would need to be protections for taxpayers to ensure jail isn't just the price for a free education, either. Society just isn't ready for this at the moment imho.

Pell grants for prisoners: Obama to give inmates a second chance at college

The Second Chance Pell grant program will help give about 12,000 inmates access to a college education.

Perhaps more tellingly, the failed steak and vitamin mogul spent nearly a fifth of the money he raised on his own businesses and salaries for himself and his family. One of his biggest outlays was renting out the Mar-a-Lago club — which he owns. Odd.

Why? That is really an odd expendature. You'd think lining the pocket of some poor small businessman would make sense. Seems it's not about the average guy.

Many observers think the real-estate mogul may not be as outlandishly wealthy as he claims.

Yes, this article pretty much sums it up for me. It is sad for me as a lifelong Republican. I am really giving my party a good hard look if it is worth staying, and if there is a viable conservative alternative. (It is too bad Austin Peterson lost the Libertarian Caucus, I would have probably voted Libertarian.)

There is a limit to the amount of jackassery that I can endorse. So I will gladly take Mike Huckabee’s advice to leave the GOP.

If this was an investigation of the abortion industry, do you think the producer would have been prosecuted for breaking the law?

Whew! I am glad the Obama Administration prosecuted the guys in PA for the civil rights violates. Thanks for saving America from these types of radicals!

Of wait...

Obama let them go for civil rights violations which were intimedating white people at the polls.

This pretty much is my opinion

I happen to believe that what we have witnessed with Hillary Clinton over this whole e-mail scandal has been really more of a ‘calculated indifference’ on her part. She basically didn’t give a damn that by her actions she was potentially placing the nation at great risk. She still doesn’t. Following the rules wasn’t convenient for her, and that trumps national security for Hillary Clinton.

....

Plus, however could she hide all of her dirty deals and other shenanigans from prying eyes if she was stuck with using a government e-mail system? The types of systems that require accountability and records. With her private e-mail server it was a whole lot easier to delete any embarrassing correspondence and keep it from federal investigators.

At least we have the most transparent administration in history.*

*History defined as since 2009.
The main character of the successful Hollywood movie Forrest Gump was quoted in that movie on several occasions saying, stupid is as stupid does.

I have not checked all of the links in this article, but this is a good summary of the scandal and why it is a big deal - not just like all of the other SoS that used private email.

I have always wondered what was actually deleted as "personal" email from the server. Was something bigger covered up? It is a question we will likely never know. This is why it is important to have good laws on records handling that are enforced.

Here is a good summary of the problem why Hillary is untrustworthy and unfit for the presidency. She should be run out on the rails. But like my brother in law says, "She and Bill know where the bodies are buried." That is what you get with the Clinton smear machine.

A report by the State Department inspector general determined that her email arrangement violated State Department rules, that she did not seek permission for the setup and that her was shut down at least once because of fears it had been hacked.

Clinton failed to hand over all her work emails, despite being asked to do so repeatedly. She said she is unable to access emails she sent or received in her first two months as secretary of state because her emails were not yet being captured on her server. And in recent weeks, several new batches of emails have come to light that she did not turn over.

Legal experts say investigators could be looking into potential violations of Section 1924 of Title 18, which deals with the unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or material, or even the Espionage Act, which makes it a crime for anyone "through gross negligence," to allow the loss, theft or removal of classified information or fails to promptly report such mishandling to his superior.

No matter how the FBI investigation into the handling of sensitive information on Hillary Clinton’s personal computer server ends, it will hurt her presidential bid.

Nothing like telling someone with a special relationship, like a wife or best friend, "I respect your decision, so now get in the back of the line because of your decision." Even Germany discussed moving forward in positive terms without punishment.

I am not sure what "special relationship" means for Obama. I would hate to be Michelle with a special relationship.

He added: "The United Kingdom and the European Union will remain indispensable partners of the United States even as they begin negotiating their ongoing relationship to ensure continued stability, security, and prosperity for Europe, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the world."

However, the White House on Friday night said that the president stood by his warning that Britain would move to the back of the queue when it comes to trade deals.

"Obviously, the president stands by what he said and I don't have an update of our position," White House spokesman Eric Schultz told reporters at a briefing.
The world woke up to the news that Britain had decided to leave the European union.

I've been seeing all this stuff lately from Trump supporters decrying Liberal antigun nuts for a few days. I shake my head on the people that love Trump and think that Trump is a constitutionalist. He is not. Far from it, in fact. Here is a comment that recently made that demonstrates the falacy of the Constitutionalist Trump:

the logic Trump uses in his immigration reform is the exact language antigun nut use to ban scary looking guns.

_Terrorists use their faith to motivate their actions, so we will ban all muslims. https://www.donaldjtrump.com/press-releases/donald-j.-trump-statement-on-preventing-muslim-immigration_

Terrorist use guns to execute their violence, so we will ban scary looking guns.

Same faulty logic... different presidential candidate. This is why constitutional minded people really don't support Trump.

Oh, and the logic and statement is straight from Trump's campaign website. Notice how he admits taking no time to review statistics before making a stupid unconstitutional statement like basing admissions on religion? What if it were a Christian ban because of hatred by radical Christians of gays?

i probably will not vote. And not because Clinton's policy positions are explicitly immoral (pro-abortion, tax-payer supported.)

Story
Tagline
"No messin' with Sasquatch!"
Introduction
What's with that tagline? Glad you asked. 

Atticus Finch was my profile picture for years.  (I loved the scene with Atticus shooting the rabid dog - "best shot in the county.")  It was time for a little fresher profile picture.  I found an article where a hunter claims to have killed a bigfoot.  It included a photo. "Dead bigfoot.  photo.  How cool is that?"  I knew it had to be the new profile picture.  

Shortly after posting the new profile picture, one of my G+ political friends reminded me of the beef jerky ad. It just seemed apropos. It just had to remain my profile pic and tagline... at least until it gets old.
