“These anti-gun globalists know that as long as Americans remain free to make our own decisions without being bossed around by big government bureaucrats, they’ll NEVER be able to seize the worldwide power they crave,” said Paul.
Does anyone actually believe this? Like, people have to know that this is all just rhetoric. The UN isn’t actually trying to dominate the world; Obama isn’t trying to confiscate all guns so he can turn the U.S. into a police state. I hear this stuff all the time (from both sides) and to me just seems like a joke. People don’t actually believe word-for-word what these politicians say…right? Why can’t we sit down and have a real conversation about issues that need solving (gun control being one) without over-exaggerated fear mongering? Shit like this stalls the government indefinitely because yelling at each other hoping the other side will back down before you do gets everyone nowhere.
“Secretary of Security Lai Tung-kwok appeared at a Fight Crime Committee meeting Tuesday to discuss the soaring rape statistics in Hong Kong, according to Hong Kong’s The Standard. Instead of pointing the finger at culprits of sexual assault, Lai suggested women’s drinking habits might be to blame.”
"To say this report is disturbing would be a gross understatement," Gillibrand said. "For the second time in a week we are seeing someone who is supposed to be preventing sexual assault being investigated for committing that very act."
“On Friday, Christopher Marshall, a second grader at Driver Elementary School in Suffolk, Virginia and his classmate were playing with their pencils, pointing them at each other and making machine gun noises when a concerned teacher pulled them into the principals’ office. “
Principal Pritchard agreed. “Honestly, I don’t think she meant to ever hurt anyone. She wanted to see what would happen [when the chemicals mixed] and was shocked by what it did. She told us everything and was very honest. She didn’t run or try to hide the truth. We had a long conversation with her.”
Wilmot has been expelled, arrested and charged with possession/discharge of a weapon on school property and discharging a destructive device. Her family was unavailable for comment, but she, according to reports, will be tried as an adult.
“‘In the end it didn’t pass because we’re so politicized. There were some on my side who did not want to be seen helping the president do something he wanted to get done, just because the president wanted to do it,’ Toomey said.”
Because holding grudges comes first, protecting the people comes second.
“Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) floated a proposal last week that would require the U.S. agency that supports non-medical research to certify that its grants were only funding research that is groundbreaking, important, and original. Legitimate scientists said those conditions can’t be guaranteed and contradict basic scientific method.”
In all seriousness, this country doesn’t fund enough scientific research. With grants being impossible to get, NASA’s budget constantly being slashed etc. The last thing we need is more political oversight.
