***Knee Jerks: There's nothing the Left won't exploit.
After he booby-trapped his apartment with explosives, James Holmes walked into a theater Friday night and opened fire on a crowd waiting to see the first showing of the new Batman movie. He shot scores and murdered a dozen. Holmes acted for reasons unknown, but his actions were pure evil.
His actions also were his alone.
It doesn’t matter if he was bullied as a kid, recently dumped or whatever else anyone comes up with as a possible motive. Nothing “caused” him to do this other than whatever evil lives inside him.
But that hasn’t stopped many progressive liberals in and out of the media from speculating wildly, and seemingly hopefully, as to his motives and his political affiliation. It hasn’t stopped them from using this event as a platform to score political points on the issue of gun control. It’s sickening … and typical.
***Fast and Furious stonewalling looks like guilt. Of course it does. And if this were a Republican administration, it would be all over the news, there would be special reports, special committees, etc. etc. etc. As it is? Barely anything.
***Obama: Put more people on welfare!
The Obama Administration has a one-size-fits-all solution for our nation's problems: put more people on welfare!
We've just seen moves like running radio soap operas to encourage people to sign up for food stamps and claiming the right to waive welfare's work requirements.
But that's just the tip of the iceberg!
The federal government actually runs 126 separate anti-poverty programs. They're managed by 13 different agencies.
We use the word "welfare" to describe money that goes to needy people. But the government's war on poverty is a whole lot bigger. And it's rife with waste and redundancy.
