Detroit police chief James Craig wasn't always crazy about gun ownership among the citizenry. He was your average gun control proponent when he worked for the LAPD for 28 years. He changed his mind in 2009 when he moved to Maine. Regarding his change of heart, he stated:
“Coming from California, where it takes an act of Congress to get a concealed weapon permit, I got to Maine, where they give out lots of CCWs, and I had a stack of CCW permits I was denying; that was my orientation. I changed Read more [...]

During school spirit week at a rural Iowa high school in Marshalltown, students were told to wear the school colors, which are red, white and blue. Each color was assigned to a grade.

Fox News’ Wendell Goler poked some fun at President Obama yesterday when he wondered aloud if the President was enjoying his photo-op!
Last week, Republicans (and many in the media and around the country) were wondering why President Obama wasn’t making his way down to the border to get a better understanding of what was happening there.
Obama’s Press Secretary Josh Earnest explained the lack of interest from the President as stemming from his hatred of “photo-ops.” This while the Read more [...]

A reporter who works for Orlando’s Channel 9 lives in D.C. He was flying out of Orlando’s airport, and when he showed his D.C. drivers license to a TSA agent, the agent said that it wasn’t a valid form of ID.

In his conversation with the agent, Gray found that the agent had no idea that D.C., that is, the Read more [...]
The liberal narrative has always been that Republicans hate women. I don’t think they actually believe it. It just helps them get more voters.
Since the Hobby Lobby ruling, liberals have been saying that the GOP hates birth control.

And of course, liberals are now saying Read more [...]

The article is quite fascinating, but it brings up some very important questions concerning abortion.
The human placenta is apparently very aggressive—one researcher likened it to cancer. “Parasite” was also thrown out to describe Read more [...]
