If we want to stop mass shootings — and we all do — we should know two things. First, we know that the popular gun-control proposals almost certainly wouldn’t have stopped a single recent mass shooting. Second, we also know that armed citizens have stopped active shooters time and again. Given these realities, I wonder if Senator Harris gets things exactly backwards. Exposure to the effects of gun crime could well increase our national commitment to gun rights. The desire for self-defense is a reasonable and moral response to the evil men in our midst.
In other words, we are in a revolutionary cycle in which the old idea of Democrat or liberal is being superseded by progressivism — and then going well beyond even that. The new generation of Democrats no longer resents “socialist” as a right-wing slur, and “Communist” may well go through the same rehabilitation.

“What I have recommended to the New York delegation is that you find her a primary opponent and make her a one-term congressperson,” the Democratic lawmaker, who requested anonymity, told The Hill. “You’ve got numerous council people and state legislators who’ve been waiting 20 years for that seat. I’m sure they can find numerous people who want that seat in that district.”
She's challenging the system, man. That's what happens if you challenge the system.

Gilbert went on to press Tran about the requirements for a physician to determine that a woman’s mental health dictated that a woman could receive an abortion for a viable baby in the 3rd trimester. Tran admitted that the physician would not need any special training to make this determination. In effect, it’s a catch-all that means any woman demanding a viable baby be aborted rather than born can legally do so.

And it was bad. By allowing labor unions to hold franchisers like McDonald’s responsible for labor practices of their franchisees, despite having no direct control over those policies, they opened the door to all manner of lawsuits, government fines, and other mischiefs. Analysts at the time predicted that it would have a trickle-down effect on the franchisees, creating a harsher business climate and leading to uncertainty in hiring and other policies. The NLRB under Donald Trump finally blocked that change and began to unwind it in 2017, but much of the damage was already done. Just how bad was it? A new study from the International Franchise Association and Chamber of Commerce reveals that it led to job losses numbering in the hundreds of thousands. (Free Beacon)
Not for unions, it wasn't.
Sanderson alleged that after Paltrow was going too fast and was distracted, resulting in “knocking him down hard, knocking him out, and causing a brain injury, four broken ribs and other serious injuries,” she simply “got up, turned and skied away.”
She continues to be a deep disappointment to me.
It’s been a rough time for faithful Catholics recently in our state government’s frantic rush for “progressive” ideas.
I’m thinking first of the ghoulish radical abortion-expansion law, which allows for an abortion right up to the moment of birth; drops all charges against an abortionist who allows an aborted baby, who somehow survives the scissors, scalpel, saline and dismemberment, to die before his eyes; mandates that, to make an abortion more convenient and easy, a physician need not perform it; and might even be used to suppress the conscience rights of health care professionals not to assist in the grisly procedures. All this in a state that already had the most permissive abortion laws in the country.
If you're so upset, Cardinal Dolan, you could always excommunicate him.
The effectiveness of border barriers is a settled fact. Yet some Democrats, led by the speaker of the House, deny that fact and insist that new and improved barriers would not increase border security. Other prominent Democrats, such as recently declared presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris, have called the Trump barrier proposal a "medieval vanity project."
