Generally, I don't disagree with you.
One Georgia town put a new twist on things. Apparently, they just passed a law requiring citizens to own guns and ammo. The law contains no penalties and has exemptions for felons and the mentally ill and anyone can opt out.
But the new law requires the head of every household to own a gun and ammo to “provide for the emergency management of the city” and “provide for and protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants.”

What if every town in America followed this example? Talk about a major backfire on the Obama agenda.
The law is also meant to pre-empt any future attempt by the federal government to confiscate guns, according to the council’s agenda.

Lamar Kellett, who lives in Nelson and spoke against the law at a hearing Monday, said the town would never pass a speed limit and allow people to flout it. He said the ordinance was pointless.

“People who want a gun, they already have one probably,” he told WXIA, the NBC affiliate in Atlanta.“There’s been no violent crime in Nelson in the past 10 years. So how are you going to improve on no violent crime?”

The measure is modeled after a law adopted in 1982 by Kennesaw, another Atlanta suburb. Police there acknowledge that they haven’t tried to enforce it.

Sounds like a bunch of backward yahoos.

Many Republicans have long hailed the budgetary prowess of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI). David Stockman, the former director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan, isn't one of them.

Once a leading champion of supply-side economics who took the lead on economic policy in the Reagan White House, Stockman suggested that Ryan is not a serious figure in the fiscal debate.

"He's all hat and no cattle," Stockman told The Atlantic in an interview published online Tuesday. "Beyond that, I think he's intellectually dishonest. His budget plans are bogus."

Stockman said in the interview that he would give Reagan a "somewhat negative" rating "for being so stubborn and insistent" on the build-up of defense. He said that the GOP's memory of the Reagan presidency is too rosy.

"Because Republicans claim that we had this great Golden Age in the 1980s, that there was a boom in the 1990s, and that everything was going well during the George W. Bush era until some mysterious comet came in from deep space and caused a meltdown in 2008," Stockman said. "My argument is that this was mostly a phony prosperity built on massive additions to public and private debt."

Yeah, and preventing tham thar queer folks from marryin' thar dogs and stuff. Bunch of yahoos.

Boot: Obama Should Abuse Executive Power and Drag the U.S. and NATO Into Another War

Max Boot is annoyed that the U.S. isn’t meddling even more in Syria:

Suffice it to say, if the president were remotely interested in a more active American role, legal opinions could easily be ginned up to provide ample justification for such a policy [bold mine-DL]. And if the U.S. were serious about doing something, then NATO could very well be brought along [bold mine-DL]. These are not serious obstacles to action—but rather excuses for inaction.

....If Obama isn’t having administration lawyers concoct fabulous lies to justify an unnecessary war, that is welcome news. If he isn’t dragging NATO into a second unnecessary war in three years, that is something that sane Americans, Europeans, and Canadians should welcome. That Boot considers them to be reasons to complain tells us all that we need to know about the value of his policy recommendations.

Institutionalizing someone under the Baker Act isn't as easy as you might think.

Changing the law to simply detain someone for a short period of time with sufficient reason and enough people agreeing the red flags are there just long enough for mental health professionals to determine if they are a threat to society and themselves would not require any changes in HIPAA or the current privacy laws.

Bush in the Tub and Bush Showering!!! Oh my effing word, yes I have seen them before and they're hilarious.
Perhaps they can mass produce them onto those velveteen carpets that you can hang on the wall that you see in trailers and stuff?

How Ben Carson Got Burned By The Fox News Flame

When political novices fly too close to the Fox News flame, they risk getting burned. Just ask Dr. Ben Carson.

After profiting from a Fox News public relations blitz for much of the past two months, during which he logged at least twenty appearances on the network, the famous neurosurgeon, who has been toasted inside right-wing circles as a possible GOP savior, has suddenly been forced to defend his "trainwreck" interview where he likened marriage equality supporters to people advocating pedophilia and bestiality.

And just like that, Carson has gone from being Fox News' surefire rising star to a target of a widespread backlash. And just like that he's learned the Fox News embrace carries with it grave consequences and that hard-earned reputations can be tarnished in an instant.

As many of my topix friends are aware I have an endless supply of fake ip addresses and topix id's which I use every day of my life that I spend on topix. It helps to pass the time here on the psych ward in my embarrassing hidden location where I am permanently confined.
It keeps me busy and I feel I am doing something worthwhile with all my spare time. My psychiatrists think it is good therapy and basically harmless.

Hallelujah! It's about time someone started fighting back and took a concrete stand against this overbearing and overly intrusive administration.

The Obama administration is precisely the reason our founders included the 2nd Amendment.

States rights are still alive! Praise be!

Maybe it shouldn’t surprise us that the man who brought us a vision of compassionate conservatism would turn to art to express the angst of a crappy Presidency that got us into two wars, used homophobia, racism, and sexism as an electoral tool, crashed our economy, and made the world hate America. This is a man who is obviously feeling his mortality. He sits in the bathtub alone. Nothing to contemplate. Nothing to see beyond reflections of himself and his body. There is almost a melancholy in these images, with their grays, and he is not presented a strong, heroic person, quite the opposite. This is not the George W. Bush of Fox News or Sunday morning talk shows. This is Bush, the old man, with lots of time on his hands. Once the most powerful man in the world, Bush is now alone, exploring his immediate surroundings in these spurts of introspection. If only he had done this all along, maybe he would’ve been a better leader.

Don't you just hate those red lights on cameras? Especially at major intersections?

Then again, I'm a safe driver. But everyone is guilty of rolling through a red light from time to time if the coast is clear. Those cameras don't let you get away with anything.

A person can sign himself out at any time. It's useless. If the person refuses mental health care there's nothing anyone can do about it.
