In spite of all the predictions by Republican activists that Barack Obama would snatch away their guns, nothing of the sort has happened. Six years into the Obama presidency, and there are still guns all over the United States, and no significant gun ban in sight. We can’t prohibit guns in the USA, because of [...]
Yesterday, the House of Representatives witnessed a twisting knot of self-contradiction from Reverend Patrick J. Conroy, the government-established, First Amendment busting, Chaplain of the lower house of Congress. Chaplain Conroy prayed:
