He may spend the next six years of his life in prison because anti-gun New York Democrats who know nothing about firearms arbitrarily decided that pistol grips, a bayonet lug, and an adjustable stock make a rifle more deadly.
“It’s not like I’m going to the Hell’s Angels,” McLaughlin said. “I belong to a Catholic church and they raffle off thousands of dollars. This is a safe, legal firearm he’s raffling. I don’t see the controversy, and it doesn’t strike me as odd at all that they’d raffle a rifle at a church.”
Rev. Willie Bacote, pastor of Missing Link AME Zion Church in Troy, who has organized gun buy-back programs in the city, said he considers the raffle un-Christian.
“The fact a church would offer some type of weapon to anyone strikes me as ludicrous and goes against everything the Bible teaches,”
I assume by “going Hell’s Angels” he means not turning the other cheek? Unless I’m mistaken the Biblical quote of Jesus saying to turn the other cheek had some context that is always left out of it’s use.
Establishment Christianity needs to get over the wussy excuse of cheek-turning and inheritance meekness.
And if leftist, tyrannical politicians continue on their citizen-disarmament rampage (and they will) ‘Going Hell’s Angels’ may be a good description of what they’re going to get.
And! not gonna let this slide either: Did Rev. Willie really name his church Missing Link?
“I give my left nut to bang down your door and come for your gun…”
Four central European nations have appealed to the U.S. to increase natural gas exports should Russia cut off its supply to Ukraine. We are the superpower of energy. Time to give Vladimir Putin some gas pains.
I know you don’t need a reminder that if the U.S. is a energy superpower, it is in spite of everything the Left has said and done over the last 40 years.
President Obama says there will be “costs” for Russia’s seizure of Crimea, so it’s time the administration remembered that a crisis is a terrible thing to waste. This is a perfect opportunity to increase our exports, as Obama has pledged to do, and thwart in a non-military way Russia’s increasingly expansionist ambitions.

Imagine the guy on your left is wearing panties and lipstick, the soldier on your right is menstruating and the one behind you is whispering “alah akbar”.
Now try to imagine having any morale, confidence or hope for survival.
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) just announced that it will be providing our military with chaplains for active-duty service.
That’s right–our Pentagon is allowing ISNA (a Muslim Brotherhood affiliate) to supply the US military with full time chaplains.
when questioned by the Clarion Project about its egregious decision concerning ISNA–the Pentagon released the following statement: “The Islamic Society of North America is one of many religious organizations recognized by the Department of Defense that satisfy the ecclesiastical requirements to endorse qualified religious ministry professionals to serve as chaplains within the military.”
I wasn’t aware that having sex with a 9 year old girl was an “ecclesiastical requirement?”
Army will be needing to add a new signal to this list: Military Hand Signals, that indicates a quick time-out so the enemy and portions of your own force can take a few minutes to bop their foreheads on the ground – five times every frekking day.

Like a married man preparing to cheat on his wife, the Republican Party is circling around amnesty while pretending not to, making excuses, professing love for its base and then when it thinks no one is looking, it makes a run for the open border.
Amnesty is a cheap date for Democrats and Republicans.
Democratic and Republican Amnesty supporters, obsessed with feudal dreams of cheap nannies and field hands, despise their base. Democratic feudalists use the language of civil rights and Republican feudalists use the language of the free market, but both are just looking for excuses to cheat on their base with cheap labor and cheap votes.
After the obligatory tug of war, like a man forcing his wife to pay the hotel bill for his mistress, the tab for the cheap votes and cheap labor will be dumped on the middle class which is being forced to fund its own destruction.
Mitch McConnell has been pretty open in the past about his contempt for conservatives. He has referred to conservatives and the outside groups they fund, as traitors, bullies, drunks, and fringe. He claims conservatives “tear up every bar they walk into,” and he wants to “punch” the tea party “in the nose.”
Students are chosen for charter schools by lottery … The Success Academy in Harlem is typical. It received 2,665 applications for 125 spots last year … When the results are announced, a lucky few are jubilant. The faces of the remainder of the children are tear-stained and devastated.
De Blasio bulldozed into office swearing to take aim at the privileged and defend the powerless. If you know anything about leftists, you won’t be surprised that he is actually training his fire on the poorest and most vulnerable. Remember that one of President Barack Obama’s first acts was to attack the school choice program in the District of Columbia.
…. De Blasio, like many in his party, is a loyal servant of the teachers unions.
If liberals cared about minority children, they would embrace charter schools.
Why would anybody who has any concern at all about minority young people — or even common decency — want to destroy what progress has already been made?
One big reason, of course, is the teachers’ union, one of Mayor de Blasio’s biggest supporters. But it may be more than that. For many of the true believers on the left, their ideology overrides any concern about the actual fate of flesh-and-blood human beings.
not just isolated local incidents. The Obama administration has cut spending for charter schools in the District of Columbia, and its Justice Department has intervened to try to stop the state of Louisiana from expanding its charter schools.
Why such hostility to schools that have succeeded in educating minority students, where so many others have failed?
Not all charter schools are successful, of course, but the ones that are completely undermine the excuses for failure in the public-school system as a whole. That is why teachers’ unions hate them, as a threat not only to their members’ jobs but to the whole range of frauds and fetishes in the educational system.
Charter schools take power from politicians and bureaucrats, letting parents decide where their children will go to school. That is obviously offensive to those on the left, who think that our betters should be making our decisions for us.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce vowed to spend $50 million taking sides in GOP primaries for establishment-friendly candidates, and other GOP establishment front-groups vowed to raise and spend millions more dollars against conservative and Tea Party candidates.
“Big Business swore this would be the year it would wrestle back the soul of the Republican Party from the grip of the tea party,” Politico writes. “But with primary season looming, the big threats from Big Business appear to be just that.”
» Hamas unveils rocket statue in Gaza City
What’s the main argument for Israel’s retained control of Golan Heights and West Bank? The same as was for retaining control of Gaza – denial of strategic advantage to the enemy.
But Israel has leftist idiots same as the U.S. and they occasionally let them sit in the driver’s seat – same as the U.S. It was during one of those leftist-driven administrations that Israel thought it would be a good idea to give Gaza, outright, to the Palestinians as a demonstration of their desire for peaceful coexistence. Because that’s what the Palestinians wanted, that’s what it would take for them to settle down and coexist.
Turns out, the Palies didn’t really want to coexist. They just wanted to move their rockets 80 miles closer to the target.
Now,the Israeli versions of Obamabots can peep over the border and see their monument. I’d bet they’re just stupid enough to get all misty about it.
