‘Toaster Pastry Gun Freedom Act’ proposed in Maryland
There have been too many of these incidents lately; we need to legislate common sense. Amazingly, "Park Elementary School officials later offered counseling to other students who may have been traumatized by the pastry." My favorite part of the proposed legislation is this: "The bill also includes a section mandating counseling for school officials who fail to distinguish between guns and things that resemble guns."

A small business owner who has had enough:
Many business owners cannot afford the cost of Obamacare, and to add insult to injury they are being labeled as the enemy.
July 22, 2012
"‘You Didn’t Build That!’ … Oh Yeah?"
Obama said, about people who have small businesses, "You didn't build that!" All that hard work, sacrifice and risk count for nothing - without government infrastructure.
Some argue that it was the other way around — that it was the successful ventures that prompted all the infrastructure.
"If you’re one of the millions of Americans counted as part of the eight percent unemployed, you didn’t get there on your own. Somebody else made that happen. And he’s running for reelection."

NBC will do an "internal investigation" on the way they used an edited version of Zimmerman's 911 call.

President Obama and Democrats have placed themselves on the wrong side of the issue in Wisconsin.
There won't be much sympathy for the striking state employees, who get paid more money than the average taxpayer, and go on strike because they don't want to pay a dime toward their own generous benefits. Obama acted stupidly in picking sides against taxpayers.

Send your old compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) to your member of Congress for proper disposal in hazardous-waste landfills, since they contain mercury.
Forcing us to stop buying incandescent bulbs is hardly a "green" idea. CFL's contain mercury; follow the multiple steps recommended in the EPA guidelines if one breaks in your house. An don't bother with LED's either - they contain lead and arsenic.

Victor Davis Hanson - The Middle East and the Multicultural Nightmare
"Multiculturalism [is] ... a byproduct of Western affluence, which alone provided the margin of safety and affluence to indulge in fantasies."
"Multiculturalism is a fraud of sorts, as the activist who wears the serape to campus never quite agitates for adopting the protocols of the Mexican police or the Mexico City elite's approach to Indian peoples. We do not see signs blaring out: "We want Nigerian speech codes," "Treat women as they do in Saudi Arabia," "Look to the Iranians for gay rights," "Arabs had the right idea about slavery," etc."

The administration is now arguing in federal court that Obama signed a massive middle-class tax increase, in violation of his campaign pledge.
In order to protect the new national health care law from legal challenges, the Obama administration has been forced to argue that the individual mandate represents a tax -- even though Obama himself argued the exact opposite while campaigning to pass the legislation.
