Why Jason Alexander's Anti-Gun Twitter Rant Is Hypocritical Nonsense posted 07/22/2012, 11:24 PM (InformationLiberation)
[Category: Commentary]
Actor Jason Alexander of Seinfeld fame penned an anti-gun rant on his twitter account earlier today. The post made the front page of Reddit and it's getting a lot of circulation. It's an interesting read if not just to see the hypocrisy supporters of civilian disarmament exhibit.
This morning, I made a comment about how I do not understand people who support public ownership of assault style weapons like the AR-15 used in the Colorado massacre.

That comment, has of course, inspired a lot of feedback. There have been many tweets of agreement and sympathy but many, many more that have been challenging at the least, hostile and vitriolic at the worst.

Clearly, the angry, threatened and threatening, hostile comments are coming from gun owners and gun advocates. Despite these massacres recurring and despite the 100,000 Americans that die every year due to domestic gun violence - these people see no value to even considering some kind of control as to what kinds of weapons are put in civilian hands.
Note, in "civilian hands."
Many of them cite patriotism as their reason - true patriots support the Constitution adamantly and wholly. Constitution says citizens have the right to bear arms in order to maintain organized militias. I'm no constitutional scholar so here it is from the document itself:

As passed by the Congress:
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
As ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State:
"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not

Drone-Striker-In-Chief to Visit Colorado Over Shooting posted 07/22/2012, 6:09 PM (InformationLiberation)

Drone-Striker-In-Chief Barack Obama is taking a trip to Colorado to exploit the Dark Knight tragedy.

I can't help but laugh at the idea a man who kills as many people as James Holmes did in "the worst shooting in US history" every week by drone strikes and overseas wars is now going to the scene of another slaughter to "console" the victims. Funny, I've never seen him fly to Pakistan, Yemen

Maybe if the police officer had arrived just a minute later, the young man would still be alive.

That’s what the friends and family of Destin Thomas say, after Columbus police confirmed yesterday that it was one of their own officers who shot and killed Thomas while responding to a 911 call he had made on Tuesday morning.

Police gave few details yesterday about what happened between the 21-year-old Thomas and Officer William Kaufman, a 17-year veteran, citing the on

Judge says it's OK to use your seized phone to impersonate you and entrap your friends posted 07/22/2012, 1:52 PM (Boing Boing)
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
A federal judge has upheld the practice of police using seized phones to impersonate their owners, reading messages and sending sending entrapping replies to contacts in the phone's memory, without a warrant. The judge reasoned that constitutional privacy rights don't apply to messages if they appear on a seized device -- even if the messages originated with someone who has not been arrested or is under suspicion of any crime:

Why has America, a nation known for rugged individualism, descended so quickly into submission and a police state?

In 1831, the French political theorist and historian Alexis de Tocqueville received a commission to examine the prison system in  America. His personal purpose, however, was to examine the character of a new America to which many Frenchmen looked as a model. After turning in his official report on prisons, De Tocqueville published his more personal findings: a pivotal

£13tn: hoard hidden from taxman by global elite posted 07/22/2012, 1:50 PM (The Guardian)

A global super-rich elite has exploited gaps in cross-border tax rules to hide an extraordinary £13 trillion ($21tn) of wealth offshore – as much as the American and Japanese GDPs put together – according to research commissioned by the campaign group Tax Justice Network.

James Henry, former chief economist at consultancy McKinsey and an expert on tax havens, has compiled the most detailed estimates yet of the size of the offshore economy in a new report, The Price of Offshore Rev

Socialist drivel. Not having your money stolen by the government is not "hoarding," most everything these people are doing is perfectly legal, what these socialist control freaks want is a global fascist government where there are no "tax havens" and everyone is looted to the fullest extent. The solution to the "problem" in this article is let everyone move their cash off shore and avoid taxes, not bring everyone under a global fascist state. - Chris

If this were a law firm, you would be wise to hire another.

I define puttering as follows: "Unsystematic work that fills time without accomplishing much output." I define frittering as follows: "The refusal to take advantage of opportunities that have been placed in your hand."

SAN FRANCISCO -- A former California transit officer who fatally shot an unarmed man on an Oakland train platform in 2009 urged an appeals court Wednesday to overturn his involuntary manslaughter conviction, saying that letting it stand would place police under an increased threat of prosecution for making mistakes.

Johannes Mehserle, who worked for the Bay Area Rapid Transit, has long said he mistakenly drew his gun instead of his Taser when he shot 22-year-old Oscar Grant to dea

Immigrants in the early 20th century celebrated US citizenship. The threat of illness, death, and separation from their wives and children failed to deter these Europeans who fled their home countries for the promise of a better future.

Many readers will be aware that last week in a speech President Obama said "If you've got a business -- you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." There have been many comments on this already — most of them I’ve seen have been negative — but I’m still going to add a few words, because I find the comment so troubling.

If the credit for a business person’s success belongs to “somebody else,” who is that somebody else?

The 2001 tax relief bill (EGTRRA), drastically reduced the impact of the death tax over the course of a decade, so that it was eliminated entirely for one year in 2010 — a good year to die, joked a number of pundits. The bill lowered marginal rates and increased the applicable exclusion amount, but it also included a provision allowing individuals to carry over exclusion dollars that were unused by their spouse at the time of his or her death. This “portability” measure effectively increased the... (more)
