Thumbnail image for What Anti-Self Defense Democrats Want For Your Town

Chicago has some of the strictest anti-gun laws in the nation because they can pass whatever laws they please with little or no opposition from anyone with even a lick of common sense.  It is a laboratory for their anti-gun policies.  And it is a ‘labratory’ with the the highest murder rate in the nation.

Thumbnail image for Are They Imbeciles or Advocates?

Democrats claim that the state can and will protect you.  That you do not need to protect yourself.  It is a legislative priority of theirs, disarming you.  What does that tell us about Democrats? Every time the Progressives, Democrats, Liberals, remark, mock, or complain about the private and lawful ownership of any tool to defend […]

It’s no longer […]

Democrats and Communists…

by Scott Morales May 3, 2013

… usually begets the hyperbole induced eye-roll from many, but stick with me. Breitbart headline: “Dick Durbin at May Day Immigration Rally: Communists?

Black Vote In Question?

by Steve MacDonald October 5, 2012

The fact that I even have to write a title like that is absurd but that’s where we are.  And we’re more ‘there’ now than before the great uniter floated into the Oval Office on a glowing cloud drawn by a color-blind team of bipartian BS.  So why might the black vote be in question? […]

Yeah, this fits

by Skip September 14, 2012

We’ve kinda left the Chicago Teacher strike alone thus far.  To be sure, I think it is rather emblematic of the Blue Social model – large public unions pulling more and more from the taxpayers via in-the-Union-Pocket elected officials. In this case, we have the CTU members earning an average wage of approximately $71-76K / […]
