In case you weren’t aware the FDA is once again over-stepping its boundaries and going in to regulate the premium tobacco industry. They are “proposing” to extend their reach – and of course increase the size of their department and budget to regulate more of your freedom away. If you give a crap about the ability to buy and smoke premium tobacco head over to Cigar Rights of America and look at the talking points and send in your feedback to the FDA.
The perception is that its getting worse. This appears to be incorrect. The reality is that our national media feeds on this and devotes oodles of time on it. The progressive agenda uses tragedies like this as a spring board to go on the anti-gun campaigns – never let a national tragedy or event go to waste is their motto.
Because of the hurricane and how it ravaged the north east – politicians are discussing if they can move election day next Tuesday by a week. The president does not have the power to move the election – elections are left up to the states. Congress can have a say but they are not in session. In 2004, Congress passed a resolution on changing presidential election dates stating: “No single individual or agency should be given the authority to postpone the date of a Presidential election.”
GM would love to be able to attract talent that would help it make new cars that people want to buy – you know.. to innovate. But because of the salary cap restrictions imposed by the government they can’t. CHICAGO (MarketWatch) — The Treasury Department is resisting General Motors’ push for the government to sell off its stake in the auto maker, The Wall Street Journal reports. Following a $50 billion bailout in 2009, the U.S. Read more here.
From here. From the this is damn cool archives: Over the weekend, a freighter closer to the Wisconsin side of Lake Michigan caught a rare sight of not one but five waterspouts above the lake. The National Weather Service recorded a total of nine waterspouts cropping up with winds around 45 miles per hour. Freighter captain and storm chaser Eric Treece was able to film a dense grouping of the waterspouts. MLive.com has more from Treeceon the water formations he saw Saturday and his experience with them over the years: “Being out here, I get a really good view of thunderstorms over […]
From the blaze: The White House has released the transcript of President Obama’s recent speech in Roanoke, Virginia, and it holds a number of noteworthy statements. “Channeling Elizabeth Warren,” in the words of Jazz Shaw at Hot Air, Barack Obama said that successful Americans “didn’t get there” on their own. The official transcript relates: There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, […]
Race-baiters and the leftist media narrative is debunked again as we learn that Trayvon indeed was a thug. Not the sweet innocent kid on his way home that they portray him to be. See here: First, Martin’s school suspension record. According to an investigation by the Miami Herald, Martin was suspended twice – once in October of last year for graffiti, and prior to the shooting for possession of a bag with traces of marijuana and a “marijuana pipe.” Martin was also found in possession of some jewelry and what the Herald describes as a “burglary tool,” though these items were […]
From website: Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles. We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior. Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love. Andrew recently wrote a new conclusion to his book, Righteous Indignation: I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the […]
When Adolf Hitler took power there was a congress in Germany so to speak of elected officials that represented the people. Hitler decided that in order to get things done more quickly… you know for the good of the German people, that he should consolidate the power of the executive branch. I can’t say that I wasn’t surprised that he wants to be a supreme dictator and circumvent the constitution. But I am surprised at his ginormous balls to go out and state this in the open, and actually make this request. I guess I’m also not surprised that none of […]
With the EU slapping more sanctions on Iran to force nuclear talks – Iran now is making moves to close the straight of Hormuz. What will happen if we go to war with Iran? We already have a large group of troops deployed in Afghanistan and an additional 15,000 troops deployed in Kuwait. We’re poised to strike. Seriously the idea of getting into yet another war in the middle east sounds really bad. But the idea of Iran nuking the neighboring countries is equally bad.
I agree. But shutting down this site will have little to no impact. Both proposed bills are horrible and have consequences that are far reaching. Sure you need to stop piracy but this legislature is not going to do anything other than hurt law abiding people of many countries. Don’t give our government more power.
From here. Americans received plenty of guns and ammo in their stockings this past Christmas season as gun sales were the highest ever on record for a single month. In fact, the gun buying ramped up just before Christmas, as 102,222 background checks were conducted on December 23rd, making it the second busiest single day of firearms purchases ever. Despite already breaking records, the data doesn’t even reflect the total number of possible guns sold, as in many cases, individual buyers could have gone home with multiple firearms. All of this has sparked a lively discussion in the media and blogosphere about […]
H.R. 1639 / S. 1461 – Traditional Cigar Manufacturing and Small Business Jobs Preservation Act Did you know that on April 26, 2010, December 20, 2010, and July 7, 2011 the U.S. Food & Drug Administration publicly posted their intent to regulate cigars in the Federal Register? Some of the measures FDA could consider, as we believe they are, include: Ban on walk-in humidors, self serve cigar displays, and mail-order cigar sales; Ban on all flavored cigars, that are enjoyed by legal-age adults; Deface ornate, decorative cigar boxes, often considered an art form with grotesque images; Ban on cigar events […]
From here. Isn’t it like a government entity that competes with private sector companies to be over budget, offer worse service, and now slower service to still be in business? Seriously, any other company would have gone bankrupt by now. But not the postal service because tax payers are paying for them to be slow and inefficient.
