Food For Thought About Guns

As author and commentator Katie Pavlich reminds us in a recent video for Dennis Prager's online university, "gun rights are women's rights."
A handgun gives a 100-pound young woman the power to stop a 250-pound satyr like Harvey Weinstein.  No wonder Hollywood wants women unarmed.

How Frederica Screwed Our Military

And yet, as she said yesterday, she's a rock star.

Boom Headlines

People who follow politics tend to get excited about potential problems for those on the other side of the aisle. In other words, we thrive on scandal hoping the potential crooks will finally receive their comeuppance. But in Washington D.C. satisfaction for the electorate is rarely if ever achieved.

Case in point. Conservatives have been waiting a few years for Benghazi to come to a final conclusion. Personally, I have no doubt the Obama administration along with Hillary orchestrated a massive cover-up. If you don't believe this then your one of those who thinks a terrible movie did cause the murder of four of our guys.

The next potentially huge scandal is Uranium One whereby the Administration of Obama was allowed to sell 20% of our uranium stock to the Ruskies. The Clinton's garnered millions from this venture.

If you have your shorts tight in anticipation of jail for the aforementioned don't get excited. This is the way D.C. works:

1.) The electorate become aware of a political issue or action; often illegal.
2.)  The electorate become angry.
3.) DC needs to protect itself.
4.) Countermeasures are assigned and deployed to delay, obfuscate and create the illusion of investigation of the illegal governmental action.
5.) Electorate watch.
6.) Investigation goes nowhere.
7.) Countermeasure deployment successful.

Melania Cost Cutting In The White House

Crunch the numbers, folks.

According to a Fox News analysis of White House personnel reports, Melania Trump has significantly reduced the number of aides on the first lady's office payroll in comparison to her predecessor, Michelle Obama.
During then-President Barack Obama’s first year in office, 16 people were listed working for Michelle Obama, earning a combined $1.24 million a year.
This year, just four people were listed working for Melania Trump as of June. Their salaries totaled $486,700.

Why The N.Y. Times Says Trump's Great Economy Is Bad

Folks, these people believe they are influential in your lives. Thank Almighty God Iwas born and raised in fly over country.

The NY Times believes they have their finger on the pulse of the economy and why it's not good for America.

"But a surging economy does more than generate greater income. An industrial economy also pumps out more air pollution as more goods are produced. Polluted air, it turns out, is a major contributor to the mortality-increasing effect of an economic boom. In their analysis of how economic growth increases mortality, David Cutler and Wei Huang, of Harvard University, and Adriana Lleras-Muney, of U.C.L.A., found that two-thirds of the effect can be attributed to air pollution alone.
Other factors contribute to rising mortality during expansions. Occupational hazards and stress can directly harm health through work. Some studies find that alcohol and tobacco consumption increases during booms, too. Both are associated with higher death rates. Also, employed people drive more, increasing mortality from auto accidents.
During recessions, people without jobs may have more time to sleep and exercise and may eat more healthfully. One study found that higher unemployment is associated with lower rates of obesity, increased physical activity and a better diet."
