A political science professor, of course, declared in The Guardian, of course, that the D.C. court, who ruled the Obamacare subsidies for those on the Federal exchange were illegal, were engaging in “judicial activism” because they followed the letter of the law. In contrast, political science professor Scott Lemieux praises the 4th Circuit Court for ignoring the letter of the law and embracing an obviously acceptable extra-legal tweak that was necessary due to those evil Republicans. Because typo or “speak-o” or something.
Fun on Twitter resulted.
Not content to simply be able to travel backwards and sideways through time, Obama has declared his intent to bend the universe itself to his mighty will!
Typical Leftist, wishing to twist all of creation to some delusion of utopia.
A little mood music:
Freshman Democrat member of Congress Robin Kelly wants to outlaw all gun related merchandise or political goods that are targeted to children.
This would effectively outlaw goods related to the NRA’s Eddie Eagle program that promotes gun safety, or their annual youth day. It would also ban any advertising or weapon aimed at persons under the age of 18. If a parent of guardian wants to teach their child how to shoot, then why is that such a problem, and why shouldn’t companies be able to cater to those parents needs. A day out shooting at a gun range can be good clean family fun.
Admit it. This is cute.
While some may just make a parallel with cigarettes, the parallel is a false one. There is nothing wrong with a child being taught gun safety, or even using a gun legally. It would ban “youth-oriented colors” for firearms… so no more “Hello Kitty” Kalishnikovs! Unlike with cigarettes, the right to keep and bear arms is a Constitutionally protected right.
The aim of the proposed bill is clear: To do whatever it takes to further the keeping of dissenting thoughts away from children so that all the children hear is anti-2nd Amendment propaganda. In other words, it seeks to demonize and denormalize firearms.
Prohibiting pro-2nd Amendment goods and messaging is also an attack on the 1st Amendment. But then, some people just don’t like people exercising their fundamental rights in a way that deviates from what the anti-2nd Amendment crowd.
Now, in the glorious People’s Republic of Berkeley, the great unwashed masses shall by law receive free marijuana of the chronic variety! Free! Absolutely free! That’ll stick it to the “man”!
“Medical marijuana dispensaries in Berkeley must give some of their pot free of charge to low-income patients under an ordinance approved by the City Council.
“At least 2% of the marijuana each dispensary doles out needs to be given free to dispensary members who have ‘very low’ incomes and are Berkeley residents, the ordinance, approved Tuesday, says.l Related
“The ordinance also stipulates that free pot must be the same quality, on average, as the pot that other members buy.
“…[The] City Council has defined very low income as $32,000 a year for one person and $46,000 a year for a family of four.”
$32,000 a year? Sounds like the typical Berkeley student… or ex student who has been hanging around for decades.
Dispensing with the outmoded ideas of “profit” it is only a matter of time before all “medical” marijuana dispensaries become anarcho-syndicalist communes where the toilers of the fields of chronic sticky green goodness will be paid back by the communal wonder of naked hippies and bongo drums!
A little mood music:
Remember the narrative on how conservatives and the GOP are waging a “War on Women”? Clearly the only way to combat this is to… offer a $100,000 reward for naked pictures of a teenage girl???
Virginia Democrat Mike dickinson has offered a $100,000 “reward” for a nude photos of teenager Kendall Jones, adding that “She deserves to be a target.”
