” Back in my teaching days, many years ago, one of the things I liked to ask the class to consider was this: Imagine a government agency with only two tasks: (1) building statues of Benedict Arnold and (2) providing life-saving medications to children. If this agency’s budget were cut, what would it do?
The answer, of course, is that it would cut back on the medications for children. Why? Because that would be what was most likely to get the budget cuts restored. If they cut back on building statues of Benedict Arnold, people might ask why they were building statues of Benedict Arnold in the first place.The example was deliberately extreme as an illustration. But, in the real world, the same general pattern can be seen in local, state and national government responses to budget cuts.”
Of course any thinking person can decode Idiot Joe’s words . By ” critically important ” he is referring to the leftist belief in never letting a “crisis go to waste “* . In other words , ” here’s our opportunity to shove something entirely unsalable down the people’s throats while emotions run high ” .
It’s all politics all the time and is in no way to be construed as having the remotest to do with actual public safety . They think that as long as they strike while the iron is hot that they can ram through yet another high profile policy plank of the democratic party that they know is not only publicly unpalatable but also blatantly unconstitutional .
Recall that the above young lady’s death was at the hands of a man that the democrats referred to as ” the Lion of the Senate”
What , you say ? They wouldn’t do that ? Think Teddy “the swimmer” Kennedy and Obamacare … They’ll do anything to win . Think ” nuclear option” , think recess appointments with congress still in session , think about their present talk of changing the filibuster rules . Need more ? , How about rule changes in NJ when Robert Torricelli dropped out of his senate race and similar shenanigans in Massachusetts for Teddy’s seat .
” The Obama administration is seeking to institute a far more sweeping gun-control agenda than simply reinstating the failed Clinton bans on “assault weapons” and “high-capacity” magazines.
While the administration seeks to ban whole classes of firearms, a working group led by longtime gun control supporter Vice-President Joe Biden is also seriously considering proposals for a national registration database to track the movement and sale of all firearms, and much more. (Please see related story on congressional proposals below.)
After meeting with gun ban activists on Wednesday, Biden said, “This is a problem that requires immediate attention. I want to make clear that we’re not going to get caught up in the notion that, unless we can do everything, we’re going to do nothing. It’s critically important that we act.”
Biden went on to open the door to the option of imposing restrictions unilaterally.
“The president is going to act,” said Biden. “There are executive orders, executive action that can be taken. We haven’t decided what that is yet. But we’re compiling it all with the help [of] the attorney general and all the rest of the Cabinet members as well as legislative action we believe is required.”
When it comes to attacking our Second Amendment rights, this administration will pull out all the stops. “
As a final thought for our readers we must consider the fact of who exactly is in charge of these proceedings and speaks of the need for “critical action” , yes we refer to none other than Joe ” plagiarist” Biden . Who is dumber or more incompetent than crazy ” Uncle Joe ” ?

The party of “science” strikes again .
Is it too much to asked to be governed by reason instead of emotion ?
“New research funded by the National Science Foundation has scientists warning consumers about the potentially harmful effects energy-saving CFL light bulbs can have on skin.
The warning comes based on a study conducted by Stony Brook University and New York State
Stem Cell Science — published in the June issue of Photochemistry and Photobiology — which looked at whether and how the invisible
UV rays CFL bulbs emit affect the skin.
Based on the research, scientists concluded that CFL light bulbs can be harmful to healthy skin cells.”
