Mark Kelly….Lost in Space

It is scary that a former Navy Captain and American astronaut can be so f’n ignorant: 1) 5.56 NATO (.223) was adopted to be LESS lethal than the prior .30-06 of an M1 Garand. 2) Tactically, 5.56 NATO being LESS lethal requires the enemy to expend resources evacuating the wounded during battle. Being a much … Read more

It Appears Diane Feinstein Can’t Understand Normal Thinking

  Diane Feinstein doesn’t appear to understand the lack of logic in virtually everything she says. If she does though, then she certainly understands manipulating people’s perceptions with misdirection and irrelevant statements through an intentional use of fallacious logic.

Obama, Illinois and Handguns

If Obama is so worried about Illinois and guns, why doesn’t he point out that in 2011 only 0.2% of all Illinois murders (452) involved a rifle of any kind when he’s pushing for a new ‘assault weapons’ ban? (the total number for the year being 1) Only 2.6% of all U.S. murders in 2011 … Read more

The families of Aurora deserve a vote…They deserve a vote.” That’s like 150 votes and they already have the right to cast that vote.

Gabrielle Giffords Stars in New Gun Reform Ad (produced by the Giffords’ super PAC)

I feel bad for her, but you shouldn’t fall for this. First, the statement “We have a problem where we shop, where we pray, where our children go to school” is mostly fear mongering.

The United States of America…Where We Punish The Healthy

Regarding the Supreme Court’s decision, I think their Interstate Commerce validation is fallacious. The Interstate commerce clause authorizes Congress “To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with Indian Tribes.” The problem is, you have to have commerce for interstate commerce to apply. In this case they are not regulating the … Read more

For what it’s worth, and because I’m tired of getting into political debates where people create their own facts: You can write this down and see how correct I end up being in the next 5-10 years…frankly, I hope I turn out to be wrong this time. The Euro is going to continue to fall, … Read more

Let me guess… headlines say “Greek Bailout Imminent”

It’s starting to feel a lot like the story of “Peter and the Wolf” isn’t it? At the end of the day, what does a bailout for Greece even mean? What is it that is really being saved in the long run; a World Economy, an Economic Union, a Sovereign Nation, a failed attempt at … Read more
