New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg said that there is not “anybody that’s defended the Second Amendment as much as I have.” He made the comments in a radio interview.
“I don’t think there’s anybody that’s defended the Second Amendment as much as I have,” said Bloomberg. “I think you have a perfect right to buy weapons and keep them for protection or for sport. We have tried to make sure that you have it. The Supreme Court says that there are–consistent with the Second Amendment–you can have reasonable restrictions, so, for example, you can’t buy a nuclear-tipped weapon.”
Seriously? He's one of the biggest gun grabbers in office today. It amazes me how these people can lie through their teeth with such straight faces.
***Destroyed Hezbollah weapons depot reportedly had chemical weapons. Why isn't our media interested in this? Why do they insist on protecting terrorists?
Two days after a mysterious explosion at a Hezbollah weapons depot in southern Lebanon, the Kuwaiti website Al Jarida is reporting that Israel bombed the site because Syria had transferred missiles there that were capable of being equipped with chemical warheads. The missiles had been moved into Lebanon from Syria in the last several months and were being held inside warehouses owned by farmers in the area.
It's a scary world out there, and we have Gomer Pyle as our Commander-in-Chief. No, scratch that. Gomer Pyle had integrity.
***Obamas arrive in Hawaii for Christmas vacation. Hey, no problem. Spend another few million taxpayer dollars. I think the perks are why this arrogant jerk wanted the job in the first place.
Anyone offended by public displays of Christmas needs to see a psychiatrist. Are we clear on this? You are a loon if the sight of baby Jesus arouses anger or sadness in you. Get help.
I'm not a big Bill O'Reilly fan, but this column is right on the money.
***Robert Bork, RIP. Great man.
(Just for the record, I didn't caption this one. I know how to spell "dry clean.")
A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked. "Who would like this $20 bill?"
Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you - but first, let me do this."
He proceeded to crumple the 20 dollar note up. He then asked. "Who still wants it?" Still the hands were up in the air.
"Well," he replied, "what if I do this?" He dropped it on the
ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. "Now, who still wants it?"
Still the hands went into the air.
"My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No
matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.
Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless; but no matter what happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.
Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still
priceless to those who love you. The worth of our lives comes, not in what we do or who we know, but by ...WHO WE ARE.
You are special - don't ever forget it."
A man is at his finest towards the finish of the year;
He is almost what he should be when the Christmas season's here;
Then he's thinking more of others than he's thought the months before,
And the laughter of his children is a joy worth toiling for.
He is less a selfish creature than at any other time;
When the Christmas spirit rules him he comes close to the sublime.
