For a three-month period, every American will get a perfect credit score, and the federal government will guarantee all loans made as a result of this "score stimulus."
Survey after national survey demonstrates that fully 91 percent of Americans, including 84 percent of gun owners, strongly support universal background checks. Is there any other issue that 91 percent of us strongly support?
Obama won't pay attention to the petition with 100,000+ signatures from people representing all 50 states demanding to reject the Monsanto Protection Act, just as Congress didn't pay attention to 3rd graders marching for gun regulations.
Now that the Senate's top Democrat, Harry Reid, has made sure an assault weapons ban won't even get a vote has he set his sights on gutting universal background checks?
Here we are, ten years later, Democrats -- commemorating an unnecessary war in Iraq by continuing to allow gun zealots to purchase unnecessary weapons of war. Obviously, Democrats are more willing to vote for a misguided war than to prevent the proliferation of weapons of war.

If you were seeking any further proof that both of our political parties have just as much of an investment in perpetuating the stagnant swamp that is our state of governance, look no further than what happened Thursday.
President Barack Hussein Obama's second inauguration pretty much dominated the political news this week. Oh, wait, I meant to say "a lip-synching scandal" was what dominated the airwaves in what passes for "journalism" in America these days. Sigh.
Anyone who wants to try and give a clear, uncomplicated picture of President Obama and his party this week has to end it a little befuddled.
