Illinois and its proposed violence tax!
Only in a whacked out state like Illinois would you see the kind of screwed up politicians as you do there. Now Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle is leading the charge to levy additional taxes on guns and ammo even though he seems hesitant to declare an actual amount. Chicago, with one of the toughest gun laws in the world also boasts one of the highest levels of crime with homicides up a staggering 25% this year alone.
According to a statement made by NRA lobbyist Todd Vandermyde, “Chicago and Cook County has a gun violence problem, Chicago's got a [large] high school drop-out rate, they've got a drug problem, they've got a gang problem, but they want to make legal gun owners, guys like me, the scapegoat”.
Yeah, like this is going to end all the violence – tax the bejesus out of law abiding citizens while doing absolutely nothing about corralling the crooks.
Obama thinks he was too polite during debate!
Really! So what does that mean for the next one? Obama, my man, you going to get like really abusive or what? Or could it be, Mr. President, that the sole reason you lost this debate was a complete lack of anything positive to talk about. You know..the economy, immigration, entitlements... the Middle East…you know, that sort of stuff.
Well perhaps Biden will bale you out this coming Thursday! Perhaps a well placed zinger from Joe will be all that needed to restore the race in your favor. Hey, perhaps we’ll even see a pig fly. You never know.
Space X – A government program that works!
A space capsule loaded with goodies linked up with the International Space Station on Wednesday after a near picture perfect approach. I was amazed that Obama didn’t chortle about this one singularity in a vast sea of failure. It’s give him something to stick in the face of that ‘liar’ Mitt Romney at the town hall styled debate coming up later this month.
Uh, wait a sec…. I’ve just been informed by a friend that the rocket and the capsule were built by a private enterprise company. Sorry, my bad.
