Re: SCOTUS kills efforts to protect ballot process at the bo

Once proof of citizenship is required I predict the significance of the so-called 70/30 Dem/GOP "Hispanic" vote ratio will be greatly diminished. I suspect that once safeguards are in place to prevent NON U.S. citizens from voting the "Hispanic" ratio will be revealed to be more like 50/50. I base m...

Re: SB299 to Governor

My own experience with " DISPLAY " while living in Colorado Springs related to " open carry". In other words OWB holster with no cover. Under SB 299 " display in plain view " seems to me to equate to oc. If another person happens to catch a glimpse of a part of my Glock 23 that isn't covered - I don...

Re: HB 56 filed with text

I will not return to my vehicle in a parking lot to store a handgun. There are criminals roosting in parking lots looking for people who make valuable "deposits" in their vehicles.

Re: Obama and his henchmen

When I was young and naive and being nurtured by the public schools in California ( 1952-1961 ) I just slurped up all that neat stuff about the American revolution, our self sacrificing founders, the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and how the " checks & balances" installed by LAW ensured tha...

Re: PRISM: NSA getting everything, not just phone data

I think I will start providing Face Book "post scripts" to the National Security Agency - an agency BTW that I was once assigned to while in the Air Force.

It is time to start calling in "pest control".

Re: Fort Worth police shoot elderly man

Since an INDEPENDENT investigation will ultimately reveal the facts, I will reserve further commentary.

I would simply offer that efforts to COVER UP the facts, and CONTAIN the situation will prove to be more problematic for the FTWPD than any momentary adrenalin induced lapse in judgement.

Re: Update: Support HB972 - debate tomorrow (5/14)

Done - Senator Wendy Davis - I believe that HB 972 is a common sense approach to enabling Texas institutions of higher learning to make the determination of how to most effectively enhance the safety of faculty, and students on campuses. HB 972 will provide Texas colleges and universities with the o...

Re: SB299 to Governor

Perhaps it's kind of like the difference between seeing a car DISPLAYED at a car dealership - on a raised platform with an array of colorful balloons attached , and " Dealer Special" inscribed on the windshield VS my nice looking 1998 4x4 Chevy pickup w/ camper parked in my drive way, and it catche...

Re: Texas CHL stats that prove CHL Holders are menaces.

I like to offer analogies to help understand statistics. Consider enrollment, recruitment, or any "selection" process. If any given sample of a population is large enough a "drop-out" rate will begin to appear. Whether it is the F.B.I. Academy, a police department, a military organization, a truck d...

Re: California Governor Signs Bill to Speed Up Gun Seizures

California has always seen itself as the "smarter sibling" in the family of states. They are convinced that where they go - the rest of the states will eventually follow. Probably just a " Hollywood " hangover.

Truth is most of the other states have given up on California.

Re: If They Come for Your Guns, Do You Have a Responsibility

The sole function of the federal government is to assert CONTROL over "problems" that the state governments themselves are unable, or ill-equiped to CONTROL (border control, air-traffic control, air quality control, gun control, disease control, education control, substance control, air waves contro...

Re: Ted Cruz for President 2016?

The "natural born citizen" issue has been thoroughly settled to my satisfaction by having this British/Kenyan/Indonesian/ non-U.S. citizen being allowed by the Congress, and the courts to proceed with his Marxist insurgency charade for more than 4 years. Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio are eligible. Rand ...
