McCaskill: Without Federal Government, Only Rich Would Go To College (Video)

Today Sen. Claire McCaskill visited Northwest Missouri State University to talk about student loans.

She started the talk off in spectacular fashion, telling the students if it wasn’t for the benevolence of the Federal Government, only the rich would go to college.

When she mentioned she’s had three 17 year old sons but wouldn’t loan them money, I had to laugh at of the irony of it. She wouldn’t loan them her money, but she’ll gladly loan them yours.

Mayor of Minneapolis Lies During DNC Speech Regarding Bridge Collapse

I’m doing my best to watch the Democrat party’s convention.

The mayor of Minneapolis, R.T. Rybak just gave a speech about all the fantastical things Dear Leader has done for us.  In the speech, he talked about how a lack of infrastructure led to the collapse of the Interstate 35W in Minneapolis.

Keder on Twitter noted exactly how much bull this guy was full of:

 

It was the design, not the maintenance:

Investigators said Monday that the Interstate 35W bridge in Minneapolis, which collapsed into the Mississippi River on Aug. 1, killing 13, came down because of a flaw in its design.

The designers had specified a metal plate that was too thin to serve as a junction of several girders, investigators say.

The bridge was designed in the 1960s and lasted 40 years. But like most other bridges, it gradually gained weight during that period, as workers installed concrete structures to separate eastbound and westbound lanes and made other changes, adding strain to the weak spot. At the time of the collapse, crews had brought tons of equipment and material onto the deck for a repair job.

Think about all the lies that will be told if they can’t even tell the truth about a bridge.

Thomas Friedman Calls Himself a “Planned Parenthood Democrat,” Here’s What That Means (Video)

Newt wields his brickbat like Babe Ruth.  The only thing better is if Newt had somehow called his shot:

Thomas Friedman says he’s a “Planned Parenthood” on the issue of “choice,” and thinks “that is where the country should be.”

What does that mean?

Gun Advocates Offer More Money at Police Buy-Back Event

How many beautiful collector’s items have been destroyed in programs like this?

Gun advocates went on the offensive in Detroit when the police department decided to hold a gun buy-back event. They stood across the street with signs, encouraging people to sell them their guns for more money than the police were offering.

Not to many took them up on the offer:

Between the activists and residents awaiting to sell their unwanted guns, stood a row of five police in the center of the street.

“The police are obviously putting a wall, a barricade, between us and the people who are in line,” Ector said. “It’s a form of intimidation.”

Ector and others said gun buyback events unfairly “demonize” guns.

We want “to send the message that guns are not evil, despite what the government and police are saying,” Ector said “Guns do not cause crime; bad people cause crime.

“There’s a lot of reasons (gun buybacks) are flat out wrong. For one, it’s not going to change anything with regards to violent crime in the city of Detroit; two, potentially you have criminals who are destroying evidence along with the Detroit Police Department.”

In the church line stood Rick Ward, 47, who was selling his grandmother’s 410, bolt-action shotgun, which has sat dormant stored at his home for years.

I wonder how many drive by shootings that 410 has been a part of. How many robberies has it been used in?

What crime will this prevent in the future?

I would love to see this kind of event spread. If I had a pawn shop, I would send reps to every one of these I could find.

Some of the guns might be junk, but there might be some collector’s items being destroyed too.

Today’s Stabbing Stopped By a Concealed Weapon Carrying Citizen Brought to You By San Antonio, Texas

I suppose in the mind of a gun-grabber, a knife ban is in order:

The attack happened around 10:00 a.m. Tuesday outside the Bonham Academy on St. Mary’s Street. Teresa Barron, 38, had just dropped off her child at the school when the child’s father showed up, and the two got into an argument. The child’s father, 38-year-old Roberto Barron allegedly then stabbed the woman several times in the upper body and neck area.

Police say a bystander who happened to be a concealed handgun license holder pulled his weapon and ordered Barron to drop the knife. Barron surrendered and was taken into custody by the bystander and a school district officer.
