Re: “The Skinny

Here was NV Sen. Cathy Cortez Masto on Twitter yesterday: "Theres no room for hate or discrimination in the White House. I will be an outspoken voice against that every time." Would be so easy for Rep. McSally to do something similar. The fact that she refuses is very telling.

"unwavering commitment to her constituents?" Hilarious.

Re: “Guest Opinion

To the boneheads who think this was the right thing to do. First, if you had a clue who the 75K SSA recipients were and how they were treated, you might understand. SSA finds out that someone is not taking care of themselves, investigates, then goes to court to have a Conservator appointed as the individuals have proven not to be able to take care of everyday business, such as paying rent, buying food, keeping themselves clean and healthy. Their funds are then put in the hands of the Conservator who is required to report how the money is used. To put guns in the hands of someone declared incapable of handling day to day living simply belies common sense much less the implications of legal responsibility should these individuals commit a crime. These are not the hundreds of thousands of disabled on SSA benefits, but a small portion of the whole.
Further, the same is true of Veterans Administration beneficiaries with mental illnesses. So, what Flake is saying is that it is OK to have someone with mental illnesses such as PTSD of such severity that a representative payee is appointed to be able to own guns. Do you want someone like that next door with your children running amok outside? Again, this is a small subset of veterans receiving benefits.

Re: “Is Antisemitism Rising to the Threat Level?

Jewish American teen living in Israel arrested for JCC bomb threats, including the ones called in to the Tucson JCC. Trump vindicated. This entire thing is a hoax. Oy Vey!

Re: “Guest Opinion

So much misrepresentation, hyperbole, and blatant falsehoods in this article that I will not lower myself to try and respond point by point.

However, this kind of hit piece is to be expected from the left.

Do I like Flake? No, for many reasons. But he got this vote right.

Re: “Guest Opinion

And every time an illegal rapes or murders, a democrat comes forward to defend the whole group. Isn't that odd?

Re: “Guest Opinion

Thank you for this Pat, it beggars belief that a public servant such as he is can be such a blatant hypocrite and not be called out on it more widely. Ridiculous too that there should be any support for these repeals of sensible laws.
