It doesn't help when five of them are start shooting 50 meter away. Go ahead and arrogantly charge them and see how many you can disarm before you look like red Swiss cheese.
Petty thieves and Putin have one thing in common - they both only believe in the stick, not the carrot. When you allow the little crimes to be committed, such as pickpocketing, illegal parking, purse snatching, etc., it generates an atmosphere of permissiveness that the petty criminal reads quickly, and then he moves his threshold of things he'll do, as far as he thinks he can, and not be brought to task for it. Putin is much the same. Let him take little Crimea, and so what if it meant the sovereignty of a nation has been breached. Heck, we all KNOW that the election was 100% true, because Russia and the UN said it was!! They never lie, do they? So, next on his plate?...the rest of the Ukraine, the Baltic states (especially since the reaction by the EU and USA has been pretty much non-existent), and then the old Warsaw Pact countries in Eastern Europe had better be a little more conscious of what is going on...they may wake up one morning and find the Bear's divisions of tanks rolling through their streets... Is any of that work a nuclear war? Better to die on your feet than on your knees, wuss.
The only more whipsawing you'll see, is how she is AGAINST it again, as soon as she is re-elected She'll just say she has received more information and changed her mind, that the XL line is not really needed.
We don't need the Keystone XL Pipeline. After working in the oil and gas industry for over 22 years, I know quite a bit about the systems. Right now there are several other companies that are working to upgrade and change their existing lines (and don't need a Presidential permit) to accept the oil from the tar sands. They will be able to ship it to the Gulf coast through these lines, making the XL line nothing but an extraneous facility. It would definitely add to our infrastructure, but it isn't really needed, given the lines we already have in place.
No, within the last 4 years the DOJ has bought or contracted for over 2.5 TRILLION rounds of human-killing rounds of ammo. You really think only law-abiding citizens are buying weapons and ammo? The feds are buys fully automatic weapons, also.
Very, very bad law. What it really does, is give controls over the gun to the government. It would be very easy for the government to insert a small command in the software that would render the gun useless if the DOJ (or other governmental agency) decided you shouldn't have access to a gun (as in something like is happening in the Ukraine). Then, you are defenseless against the fascist federal government that the founders tried to warn us about.

CPAC 2013: Failing the Next Generation

CPAC was nothing but another Republican Establishment exhibition of self-interest. This article was spot on, and CPAC shows it is really becoming irrelevant in the world of ideas - they have nothing new except new ways to feather the nest of, and ensure control of, the party by current, establishment (boring) Republicans.
I think I love Alana Stewart even more than I did.

She has played any angle she can to get air time on different shows. She tried FoxNews channel in a variety of things, but didn't just gel (primarily due to her rather Moderate to left 'tudes). Now MSNBC is 'her thing' and you can expect more Communist men with big hands to come over to shake hers'.
