Speaking of rules, seems Hillary broke a big one

When a Congressional committee investigating Benghazi was seeking Hillary's correspondence with aides, it was discovered that she had only ever used her personal e-mail account for conducting business. (If you're conducting government business, you're supposed to use a government account, for one, so everything is on record.)

Anyway, no problem. Tens of thousands of the former Secretary of State's e-mails have now been forwarded to the government. Don't worry. Surely it's all of them. After all, it was Clinton's advisers who went through and chose those to be turned over.

Practice Patience and Understanding: You never know who you are about to reach.

Who I was 25 years ago, does not resemble who I am today. I used to be a liberal. I voted twice for Bill Clinton, a thought that makes me cringe now. I basically believed whatever the news told me. Oklahoma City Bombing, the benevolence of the United Nations, and the need for health care reform. I basically believed whatever history or science class in college taught me. I was proud to be an atheist and heavily relied on science to explain my existence. I was confident that my views were the right views and everyone else was either misguided, selfish, or stupid.

What can I say? I watched a lot of TV.

When 2007 had come along, I had grown slightly more skeptical of those in Washington. However, I went to bat for Hillary, convinced that she was going to bring some sanity back in our Country. Hillary and sanity don't even belong in the same sentence.

Warning lights began to flash for me when the media began to actively protect and make excuses for Obama. They propped him up beyond all reason. The Democratic caucuses and eventual convention were full of corruption. This was a disease that I thought only Republicans were riddled with.

I vowed never to support Obama. Of course then I was called a racist.

Homeless man killed by LAPD in broad daylight.

Los Angeles - (FOX 11) - Tensions were high Sunday in downtown Los Angeles after a 45-year-old black man was killed in an officer-involved shooting.

Police said when responding officers approached the man, he did not respond to orders, and they quickly had to upgrade to deadly force.

"He didn't have no weapon, they just shot him," a witness, Yolanda young, told FOX 11. "They could have just wrestled him down and took him to jail, but they shot him five times. "

These states are poised to allow people to carry hidden guns around without a permit

This may be the year that several states will allow people to walk around in public with concealed guns — no permit required.

Gun rights advocates have had tremendous success in recent decades making it easier to obtain a concealed-carry permit. In most states, the process is now a fairly straightforward: Applicants typically have to pass a background check. Some states also ask that applicants take a gun safety class, and some may reject applications if there is evidence of mental illness.

An Open Letter to RNC Chairman Reince Priebus Regarding His Comments at CPAC

Attendees at CPAC Friday were treated to 13 minutes of vacuous remarks and awkward one-liners by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, the highlight of which was his announcement that the RNC was now in control of how the presidential debates will be handled in the media during the 2016 presidential cycle. Matt Nye, National Chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus, wrote this open letter to Chairman Priebus in response:

Dear Chairman Priebus,

When the Waters Were Changed

Once upon a time Khidr, the teacher of Moses, called upon mankind with a warning. At a certain date, he said, all the water in the world which had not been specially hoarded, would disappear. It would then be renewed, with different water, which would drive men mad.

Only one man listened to the meaning of this advice. He collected water and went to a secure place where he stored it, and waited for the water to change its character. On the appointed date the streams stopped running, the wells went dry, and the man who had listened, seeing this happening, went to his retreat and drank his preserved water. When he saw, from his security, the waterfalls again beginning to flow, this man descended among the other sons of men. He found that they were thinking and talking in an entirely different way from before; yet they had no memory of what had happened, nor of having been warned. When he tried to talk to them, he realizedd that they thought that he was mad, and they showed hostility or compassion, not understanding.

Aborted Fetuses Found In Vaccines, Merck Confirms

Some people claim that some vaccines contain aborted fetuses among its ingredients, and recently pharmaceutical company Merck have confirmed that their MMR vaccine does contain traces of aborted fetuses.

ABC News reports:

A small but growing number of parents who object to vaccinating their children on religious grounds say they do so because many common vaccines are the product of cells that once belonged to aborted fetuses.

There is a grain of truth to this statement. But even religious leaders, including a future pope, have said that shouldn’t deter parents from vaccinating their children.

LOL! Former NSA Director Hayden calls himself a libertarian!

I've got to laugh this is so absurd!


http://youtu.be/Ufpv_Q7yhG8

Michael Hayden, who served in turn as director of the National Security Agency (NSA), principal deputy director of National Intelligence, and director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) from 1999 through 2009, elicited laughs and a loud jeer of “No you’re not!” in response to his assertion Friday morning during a Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) debate that he is an “unrelenting libertarian.”.....
