Quote For The Week

“This is the only advanced country that tolerates something like this. We have, what’s basically a mass shooting, it seems like happening once every couple of weeks: kids on college campuses, kids at home. And we’re not going to be able to eliminate all of that violence, and there’s a strong tradition of gun ownership, wonderful folks who are sportsmen and hunters, and I respect all that. But we should be able to take some basic, common sense steps that are, by the way, supported by most responsible gun owners. Like having background checks so you can’t just walk into a store and buy a semi-automatic…”

-U.S. President Barack Obama, speaking at a June 26 “town hall” meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota

“Like having background checks so you can’t just walk into a store and buy a semi-automatic”

Since 1993, every retail firearm purchase- semi-automatic or otherwise- has required a background check by the Federal Bureau of Investigation via the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS.

So basically, no one has been able to “just walk into a store and buy a semi-automatic” in over two decades.

Quote For The Week

“Are we witnessing right now the most radically, extremely liberal, ideological president of our entire lifetime right here in the United States of America, or are we witnessing the most incompetent president of the United States of America in the history of our lifetimes? You know, it is a difficult question. I’ve thought long and hard about it. Here’s the only answer I’ve come up with, and I’m going to quote Secretary Clinton: ‘What difference does it make?’”

Quote For The Week

“So, let’s recap, kids…this pathetic old harridan, who was willing to stay with a sexual predator indefinitely because she so loved power, who allowed an American ambassador be killed on her watch and American heroes be left behind to die, who looked the family of a man she claimed as friend in the eyes and lied to their faces, who has the cold-blooded gall to tell Congress, ‘What difference does it make,’ who traveled a million miles as Secretary of State and accomplished nothing, who coined the phrase ‘nuts and sluts’ to describe the women her husband sexually abused, who blamed illegalities in her former law firm on her junior associate who didn’t have the power to requisition paper clips, a woman who quite literally has accomplished nothing of consequence in her entire life spent grubbing for power over other people, and she calls us unbalanced?”

-TV producer, author, and gun personality Michael Bane in his personal blog last week, in response to potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s attack on law-abiding firearm owners at a National Council for Behavioral Health conference on Tuesday

Quote For The Week

“The first panacea for a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency; the second is war. Both bring a temporary prosperity; both bring a permanent ruin. But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists.”

Another Quote For The Week

One more QFTW to ponder as the work week kicks off:

I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid. I understand that it’s widely felt that they underperform, but the fact is that this is the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world.

-U.S. Representative Jim Moran (D-VA 8th District), in an interview last Thursday with CQ Roll Call

Members of Congress make $174,000 a year and have their travel and work-related expenses covered by American taxpayers.

Gallup reported back on March 10 that only 15 percent of Americans approve of the overall job Congress is doing.

Perhaps other elected representatives to Congress who think along the same lines as the departing Moran should make way for aspiring civil servants willing to make sacrifices when it comes to salary and terms served. After all, from what I understand, I don’t think it was the intention of the Founding Fathers for citizens to make a career out of serving in the national legislature- which is exactly what a number of these politicians are doing.
