Trump is presumptive nominee. Cruz suspends his campaign. Kasich has nothing else to do. Kasich is out.

And just the Federal department you DON’T want to hear this from:

The current tax code is too complicated. The complexity of the tax code makes the tax law too difficult for taxpayers to understand and for the IRS to administer

No GOPeWell, it looks like Donald Trump may take ALL of Indiana’s delegates right now (at the time of writing, with 73% of the vote in, Trump has 52.9% of the vote).  In listening to Fox News commentators and anchors, the word that has been consistent through out ALL of the states that when Republican primary voters agree to talk to the exit pollsters has been the word BETRAYAL.  A majority of voters believe that on all levels and in all meanings of the word and what can be done politically, the word BETRAYAL best describes how the leaders and elected officials of the GOP have treated them.

And then these leaders and elected officials are in absolute panic mode that Trump may take this?  That they take no responsibility of the utter shattering of the Party that is going on?  Sorry dudes and dudettes, but if the GOP had been doing the job it should have been doing, this wouldn’t have happened.  The TEA Party wouldn’t have happened either and after 7 short years, a TEA Partier will achieve second place in the Prez race (and many agree that if The Donald hadn’t run as a Black Swan event, Cruz might have taken it all) beating all of the erstwhile GOPe-ers.

Why?

Primarily, the GOPe hasn’t Read the whole thing!

OK, one by by reporting TV station and two by a politician who swears an oath to uphold the Constitution (reformatted, emphasis mine):

A bill making its way through the Statehouse could put more guns on the streets of South Carolina.

Rep. Wendell Gilliard said Friday he believes it’s a mistake to pass a bill that would open South Carolina borders to concealed carry permits from other states. He added, it would give almost anyone the ability to walk into South Carolina with a gun. “Everybody wants the right to carry a gun and that’s dangerous in a free society,” Gilliard said. “We should not allow that.” Part of this bill also amends current legislation; It no longer requires South Carolinians to get a concealed carry permit to carry in public.

…”We’re definitely moving backwards,” Gilliard said. “It’s not a great day in South Carolina.”

So this is a bill about implementing permitless concealed carry (open carry is illegal) in SC and extending more reciprocity to other CCW holders across the US.  That’s really it – but ABC4News, in their opening line (“put more guns on the streets“) is a bit misleading. Only if a whole lot of carrying tourists go visit and a whole lot of SC law abiding citizens decide to now exercise their Second Amendment rights, given that SC is one step closer to being true to the Constitution’s “not infringe”. But having law abiding citizen is a problem in ABC4News’ eyes? But it is Democrat SC State Rep Gilliard’s statement that I found quite odd:

The revised New Hampshire Senate calendar for the May 5 session shows that HB 629, the abortion statistics bill, will be up for a vote that day. I was beginning to wonder when it would turn up.

A bill to repeal New Hampshire’s ill-advised and as-yet-unenforced buffer zone law is scheduled for a Senate vote Thursday, May 5, two days after a committee voted 3-2 to give the bill an “ought to pass” recommendation. HB 1570 passed the House earlier this session.

The Senate tabled a repeal bill last year after an ought-to-pass motion failed on a tie vote.

HB 1570 attempts to repeal a law passed in 2014 to discourage peaceful pro-life witnesses from exercising First Amendment rights on public sidewalks outside abortion facilities. While the law delegates to abortion facility operators the right to restrict access to public property, no facility has yet done so. The law is on the books, “protecting” no one. Repeal should be a no-brainer.

The New Hampshire law is not designed to enhance the safety of women entering places where abortions are performed. That’s what laws against criminal threatening and harassment  and simple assault are for. The buffer zone law wasn’t written to discourage blockades or traffic obstruction or trespassing; those offenses are covered  by other laws as well. Those laws apply to people outside as well as inside abortion facilities – unlike the buffer zone law. Read the whole thing!

jennifer_horn_04.15WMUR is reporting that NHGOP Chairwoman Jennifer Horn has decided,

“that in the interest of party unity and “full transparency,” the New Hampshire delegation will meet on Friday at state party headquarters to vote for delegation chairman and important posts on the convention Rules, Platform, Credentials and Permanent Organization committees.”

The Email vote was already complete when she made the announcement so she knows how everyone voted. She knows with a high degree of probability what will happen at the face-to-face.

Will the vote be exactly the same? Will the twelve non-Trump delegates vote to limit what the 11 Trump delegates get to do in the delegation? I think they might.

“The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people.” ? G.K. Chesterton

"Beer Can Brian" Sorahgan

“Beer Can Brian” Sorahgan

Neighbors can sometimes be a pain in the arse. There are some that will do things that will deliberately and gratuitously aggravate their other neighbors. These crafty folks like to do just that one small thing that cannot really bring them a whole host of legal trouble. Often times, (as shown in the video below) its an act of minutia. Some act that, for the most part isn’t worth pursuing on any level…until they become persistent.

Such was the case with Londonderry Fish & Game Club. For the last nine months, beer cans were being stuffed into our front entry gate. This was done two, sometimes three times per week. While it was annoying, I would simply remove them and enter the club…Others would do the same. Pretty soon, members were removing them and sending us emails about it…or texts with photos showing the pictures of cans stuffed into the gate.

It finally got to a point where it was clear that it had become a topic of concern for members and officers alike. The overarching concern is that perhaps a member was having a beer and then using the ranges. Check out the live video after the jump... Read the whole thing!

The Tabloid campaign against Cruz has been nothing if not…amusing. Add Ted’s father–who the Trump-Tabloid Press are now linking to the Kennedy Assassination, and it just gets better. Ted Cruz spokesman Ron Nehring isn’t waiting for another other shoe to drop; he is releasing photos of Rafael throughout history. c/o Twitchy

Alas Poor Lego YorickI can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched something that included these words.

Real People. Not Actors.

So…if actors are not real people shouldn’t the professional left be treating them like unborn babies?

The contests don’t much matter. What really matters has already happened. In both parties, the peasants have revolted. The peasants are you and I, the poor saps who are expected to turn out in every election to put “their” party in power. Only it isn’t their party. Both parties’ elites hold the voters they depend on in contempt. The most important question in this election is what the peasants do when the election is over and they are again shut out. It may turn out that the question of who sits in the White House come January, 2017 is about as important as who became Roman Emperor in 450 A.D.”

Notable Quote – William Allen

If we are not physically overrun by barbarians, what will destroy us?  Not learned quibbles on the nuances of what the Founding Fathers really meant.  Rather, we will ruin ourselves with minimum wage and comparable worth laws; with controls on prices of goods, apartments, and loans; with erratic changes in the price level; with government […]

“Why the Left Loathes Western Civilization”

by Skip May 2, 2016

I think Dennis Prager nails the answer to his own question (reformatted, emphasis mine): …That is why the Left loathes Israel. If the Left actually cared about human rights, women’s rights, gay rights, or freedom of speech, religion, and the press, it would be wildly pro-Israel. But Israel, in the Left’s view, is white, European, […]

And speaking of “higher education”….more gobbledegook masquerading as academic material?

by Skip May 2, 2016

I am afraid that some of the Political Correctness crap is now making it out of the hallowed halls of the Ivory Tower (where “eccentric” is a well used adjective – this is bordering on being an asylum).  And it is becoming clear that we who actually learned useful stuff from college may soon be […]

Overall, women in the Class of 2016 will earn 139 college degrees at all levels for every 100 men, and there will […]
