Unhinged: "Whether by [Obama] executive order or thru a bi-partisan congress an assault weapons ban needs to be re-instituted. Period!!! Mr. Vice President, do your due diligence when formulating a concise and permanent national AWB plan. … Gun control is no longer debatable, it’s not a conversation, its a moral mandate. Sen. Feinstein, you are doing the right thing in leading the re-institution of a national AWB. The time is now to reinstitute a ban. … I want you to know that I agree with you 100% on enacting stricter firearm laws." –from rogue ex-LA cop Christopher Dorner’s manifesto (Dorner was apparently killed yesterday in a standoff with police.)
Snake oil: "The Affordable Healthcare Act is going to be implemented in stages and these things, just like Social Security when it started, Medicare when it started, Medicaid when it started, they all have some difficulty when they started." –Fox News’ Juan Williams attempting to explain recent revelations about ObamaCare — most notably 1. Obama sold it at costing less than $900 billion and the most recent CBO estimate is now $2.8 trillion 2. The cheapest family plan will cost almost $20,000 by 2016 3. Compliance will take 127 million man hours. So, when Juan compares ObamaCare to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, he may, inadvertently, be on to something!
Nothing to see here: "One of the things that I would like to again try to clear up, and I ask you to please stop adopting the rhetoric of the gun advocates. Chicago does not have strict gun laws." –Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy
We support, but… "We support the Second Amendment. We aren’t trying to take anyone’s guns away necessarily. We’re just trying to get something that’s common sense, a logical reaction to the tragedies that have happened in the past few years." –actor Adam Scott
Submission: "[The] president of the United States is our boss, but he is also — you know, the president and the first lady are kinda like the mom and the dad of the country. And when your dad says something you listen, and when you don’t it will usually bite you on the a$$ later on." –comedian Chris Rock
