You know, for being a supposed “constitutional scholar / teacher / professor / lawyer / whatever-the-hell-else-he-claimed”, Our Glorious President does not have a damned clue about what his job entails, or what limitations are imposed on it by the Constitution:
"In this year of action, the President will seek out as many opportunities as possible to work with Congress in a bipartisan way. But when American jobs and livelihoods depend on getting something done, [...]
A lot of people whinge about how useless Twitter is and what a waste of time it is, and, generally, they are probably right; however, personally, I have been using it as an exercise to try and condense my normal, verbose writing style, with occasional success. For example, I never would have written something nearly as concise as this on this weblog:
Apparently Vice President Joe Biden thinks women are too stupid to use [...]
The simple truth is that unless you placed your order for one at least three months ago, and if not six months ago, you are not buying an AR-pattern rifle in the near future. The parts simply do not exist, the companies cannot produce parts fast enough to even keep up with their direct orders, and I can only imagine how long the total backorder list is.
However, if the time were to ever [...]
You may not know this, but one of the ways Traction Control pays the bills is by running an FFL; this is his stock level from nine days before Election Day to 51+ days after:
Yeah, he is basically out of ammunition.
One can only assume that his numbers are fairly representative of what transpired at other FFLs, accessory companies, and firearm-related stores across the country if one remembers what happened about [...]

I just voted for Gary Johnson in early voting about an hour ago, but here is a good reason for me to know I did the right thing:
What is he talking about? The Federal Election Commission spells it out, at least when it comes to the money:
The Presidential nominee of each major party may become eligible for a public grant of $20,000,000 plus COLA (over 1974). For 2012, the grant [...]
I do not agree with the Roman Catholic Church on… well… a lot of things, but I find this commercial absolutely fascinating:
Our Glorious President has never really placed a whole lot of emphasis on appeasing the religiosity types (at least, when it comes to Western religiosity types… if you happen to wear a cloth wrapped around your head or believe marrying prepubescent girls is a-ok, he is all about keeping you happy), [...]

Just take a look at this conversation:
@willspencer: Most "Libertarians" want Obama to win, because they are angry at America. @RedheadAndRight @glennmw @KurtSchlichter @tnacgal
@linoge_wotc: I assume this was sarcasm. RT @willspencer Most "Libertarians" want Obama to win, because they are angry at America.
@willspencer: Unfortunately, no. Instead, it is an honest evaluation of what I am seeing. @linoge_wotc [Note: Tweet successfully Memory Hole’d. Replicated from memory.]
@linoge_wotc: Your perception is wrong. I suspect [...]
I do not know who the speaker is, and I do not know whose horrific idea this was*, but this aired on the big screens during the recent Democrat National Convention:
We are committed to all people. We do believe you can use government in a good way. Government is the only thing we all belong to. We go to different churches, different clubs, but we’re together as a part of our city [...]
People have asked me why I choose to support Gary Johnson in his current bid for the Presidency, rather than the arguably more-familiar third party candidate with approximately the same leanings, Ron Paul.
This is why:
Paul is occasionally right, but he is always a loon.

… Because now I am seriously considering acquiring a “real” AK-pattern firearm just because I can (and, no, Vera does not count; she may look the same, but damn).
So what brought about this sudden interest? Only Our Glorious President mouthing off and proving himself to be the petty “gun control” authoritarian we always knew him to be:
“I – like most Americans – believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the [...]
If Our Glorious President is simply going to will into existence the laws he wants – laws that are directly in violation of the standing laws of the land, laws that were not voted upon by our duly-elected Congress, and laws that directly harm our nation and its lawful residents – then why do we bother having a Congress at all?
More to the point, if our elected representatives allow this rule-by-Presidential-fiat to stand, [...]
It is a long-accepted fact that the media – especially "print" media, whether it is actually on newsprint or in bytes – is generally a water-carrier for the anti-rights cultist organizations of America and abroad. The documentation is lengthy and comprehensive, and the only people really arguing the point are those organizations themselves and those who are already known supporters and sycophants of the same.
Moving right along, Politifact is an outgrowth of the [...]
Still not doing it.
I do not care if Romney has the Republican nomination sewn up in a bag – he is just going to drown it in the River of Obama-Light.
How is that for mixing one’s metaphors? And, damnit, I am only a little late…
If I ever had the misfortune of paying to be taught about Constitutional law by the now-President Barack Hussein Obama, I think I would be demanding a refund:
The president spoke at length about the case at a joint press conference with the leaders of Mexico and Canada. The president, adopting what he described as the language of conservatives who fret about judicial activism, questioned how an "unelected group of people" could overturn a [...]
