Ban Stupidity, not Guns

I have to say, some of the news I hear about what some public schools are doing really bothers me. Teachers yelling at a 6 year old because he brought a small plastic toy gun to school (smaller than a quarter, I'm serious); schools with "zero tolerance" on anything gun related are harassing children who wear an NRA shirt, a 15 year old was expelled for having a cap gun on a school bus, or accidentally eat their food in such a way that it might look like a gun. In another instance, a 5-year-old girl was suspended for ten days and reportedly labeled a “terrorist threat” for threatening to shoot her friend with a toy bubble gun.

These Leftist Liberals are people crazy! They are causing more harm to the general public than any of these kids, but they are the ones charging these children with "disrupting the peace", "inciting violence", "being a terrorist threat", etc.

I know, many people in the Democratic party do not support what is happening, but at some point you have realize that your union values, the government is a safety net concept, etc are no longer the true goal of the DNC. There is a gradual erosion of American values happening. Young, teenage girls are allowed to have abortions without parental consent or notification. Religion is being attacked by trying to classify conservative Christians as extreme terrorists. Children are harassed for having a toy that looks like gun. This isn't the America where I want my kids to grow up.

We must re-establish the freedoms that were earned by the blood of so many past generations. End the nanny state and the big brother knows what's best mentality. Socialism is truly about bringing power to the elite class, not equality for all people. And they will enact socialism by gradually castrating the public and taking away your rights as a parent (planned parenthood, public schools), as an individual (right to bear arms; freedom of religion and speech), and as a human (socialized health care).

NewEgg: Patent Troll Slayer

I've read a lot about Lee Cheng, NewEgg's Chief Legal Officer, and each time I see something new, I say, "Bravo!" Patent trolls are going crazy. Attacking everyone over very obscure, often unsubstantiated, claims in the hope that they roll over and settle. NewEgg does not.

This quote is fantastic:
"There's bad news and there's good news," said Cheng in an interview with Ars. "The good news is, we won this case on every point. The bad news is, we're running out of lawsuits. There are fewer trolls for us to fight. I've spent a lot of time over the last seven years figuring out what to do with these guys. There are strategies I think would be really neat and effective that I literally can't execute. I can't make good law because I don't have any appellate cases left. They [the trolls] are dismissing cases against us before any dispositive motions."

IRS Admits to Targeting Conservatives

You are only a conspiracy theorist until the theory is proven accurate. Then it truly is a conspiracy.

In this case, several conservative not-for-profit groups have been complaining about being unfairly targeted for IRS audits over the past 18 months. Dana Loesch, Fox, Breitbart, and numerous others have been fighting to get this uncovered.

Well, the IRS has proven them right. Here is the statement from another perspective via ACLJ.

My question is, will this widen to other news groups and possibly lead to a congressional hearing? Ala Benghazi? (I am aware that the grave differences between these). The fact remains that the IRS should not ever be targeting groups based on their political affiliations?  I can hear the outcry now by Rachel Maddow now if G.W. had the IRS investigating groups because they were pro choice...

ABC Finally Vetting Benghazi

It's finally moved beyond breitbart.com! The main stream is calling out the Obama White House on their intentional attempt to obfuscate the real situation surrounding the Benghazi debacle.

As Mitt Romney weakly tried to explain during the debates, the White House did go on the offensive to cover up the attack and blame some "offensive conservative video" that caused a "spontaneous demonstration". As ABC reports, the White House knew from the CIA that this was a planned attack, they just didn't want to look like idiots.

Too bad Romney didn't do a full court press when he had the chance.

Sadly, I don't think we'll be as lucky as we were with Nixon and Watergate.

Here's the article.

Lawyer Trolls at Prenda: Getting what they Deserve

Judge Otis Wright is my hero. He has no mercy for people who abuse the legal system and he quotes Star Trek. He kicks ass. Check out this quote:
They've discovered the nexus of antiquated copyright laws, paralyzing social stigma, and unaffordable defense costs. And they exploit this anomaly by accusing individuals of illegally downloading a single pornographic video. Then they offer to settle—for a sum calculated to be just below the cost of a bare-bones defense. For these individuals, resistance is futile; most reluctantly pay rather than have their names associated with illegally downloading porn. So now, copyright laws originally designed to compensate starving artists allow, starving attorneys in this electronic-media era to plunder the citizenry.
