Re: “Maker of U.S. Highway Guardrail System Stops Shipments

How much do we expect a guardrail to do and how much are we willing to pay for it?

It's not "that hard of work" to get to these areas, like described above, but the defacement of these natural places is abominable.

Re: “Wyoming Attorney General Says Gay Marriage Can Begin Tuesday

Wyoming is at least saving state money and keeping Court business moving by not filing an appeal. I would suspect the number of applicants to be small but in view of Brokeback Mountain and the horror of the Laramie murder of Matt Shepherd, it is only appropriate that Wyoming fully embrace marriage equality. Congratulations to Wyoming and to its Attorney General for applying legal sense in this decision. Let's all work together to love and respect each other regardless of our personal views on marriage.

Re: “GMO Labeling Foes Spending Big on Elections

Who in their right mind spends hundreds of millions of shareholder profit to cover up their products? Oh wait, tobacco does! I guess if your product kills people, bees, butterflies and all else that's good in the world, you don't want that getting out.

Yes, Native Idaho, they probably did, but I bet you will find they also contributed to AJ Balukoff as well. Most big corporations double down on their donations. That way they can control whomever gets into office.

Great. Just what we need, more government over reach, and this time at state and local level. Gear up folks, lock, load, and don't be afraid.

Re: “Wal-Mart Will End Healthcare Benefits for Some Part-Timers

These employees will be better off because they can get better insurance for less money through the health care exchange. By company directive, employees working less than 30 hours make up 70% of Walmart's total employees. Only 2% chose to take part in the program because frequently, their share of the insurance cost exceeded their total paycheck.

Re: “Oregon Caves May Upend Understanding of Humans in the Americas

It is a bit pathetic if these cave sites haven't been long ago placed on the National Register. True recent radiocarbon dating and aDNA advances have added much to our knowledge of the inhabitants, but the importance of the caves has been widely recognized by American archaeologists since well before the National Historic Preservation Act itself was passed near half a century ago. If the National Park Service & state agencies are trying to spin this as a new discovery, they are just trying to cover their own slothful behinds.

Re: “Former Montana Teacher Re-Sentenced For Rape of Student

The judge has said he intends to retire when his term expires at the end of the year. So the judge will retire with a full pension paid for by taxpayers and will not be held negligent in any way? Sounds like something that would only happen in America.

Re: “With Appearance in Iowa, Clinton Takes Big Step Toward 2016

The question that the deep state controllers are undoubtedly asking here is "will this particular puppet give us the most bang (no pun intended) for the buck?"

In other words, "Will she further our agenda enough to have her be next?"

Somewhere in Switzerland:

"Slick Willie did a great job of furthering our plans, but Junior Shrub, with the guiding hand of Minister Cheney, really got things moving."

"Our plan to completely disgust the sheep by, cynically, sticking Mr. Hope and Change in there, has seemed to work like a charm, so it should be a cake walk for us this time around to toss any other cynical option we want for the top spot."

"Let's see...recently....

we've slotted a southern cracker: Carter
we've slotted an actor: Reagan
we've slotted a spook: Bush senior
we've slotted a horndog: Clinton
we've slotted a moron: Bush junior
we've slotted a black homosexual: Obama"

"After this last one, how is it even possible to take cynicism to the next level?"

"It's hard for most of us to even believe that we had to plug in (no pun intended) this last one in order to get the sheep ready for a woman, but this country is still getting used to getting the women out of the kitchen, so it was necessary."

"This particular puppet may actually give us a bit more military projection than old Hope and Change (no pun intended), although he took us exactly where he was directed to."

"After all, previous women that have been head of state, have demonstrated a very desirable hawkish approach to advancing our agenda....I'm thinking Thatcher and Indira Ghandi now."

"Maybe we should see if Billary can raise some hell like we're ready to see now."

"I can't wait to see those 'Billary For President' stickers."

"By the way, any VP lackey will work, as long as they're bought and paid for."

"Let's have a toast to our next American puppet!"

Re: “Why Do Democrats Keep Trying to Ban Guns That Look Scary, Not the Guns That Kill the Most People?

I find the answer to the title of this article to be rather obvious. Politicians are trying to ban the scary looking guns because there is a chance they may get that to pass. There have been enough mass shootings and media fear mongering at this point that politicians can push a ban on assault weapons without losing to much face, some people even want them to. At least, as Sparafucile so beautifully stated, they could if anyone could agree on what an assault weapon is.

Trying to ban handguns or create an all encompassing firearm ban would be absolute political suicide. This is America, we have the right to bear arms, and we love our guns. If pigs sprouted wings and started to fly and such a bill we to pass, it would be mass chaos in the country. You would have millions of irate gun owners. Would you honestly want to be the one to be in charge mitigating that damage or retrieving their weapons?

It's not rocket science Hell would have to freeze over before you were able to ban handguns or all guns in America.

Re: “Why Do Democrats Keep Trying to Ban Guns That Look Scary, Not the Guns That Kill the Most People?

The story starts off with, and bases its entire premise of public support on a preposterous notion: "Over the past two decades, the majority of Americans in a country deeply divided over gun control have coalesced behind a single proposition: The sale of assault weapons should be banned."

If you can find three people in ten who can agree on what an "assault weapon" is, then perhaps you can start to claim that people want something done with them.

I bet if you asked most Americans if DiHydrogen Monoxide should be regulated by the FDA, most would agree.
