Escaped Bison put down

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  While I recognize the potential danger such a situation poses, I still look at this as a tragedy. The animals got loose and began wandering, and Bison are very unstable creatures and can be very dangerous. I only hope they don’t go to waste and are rendered properly.

Fox News:  “Three men hired by the farm were cleared to open fire Friday afternoon in a stream in woods in the town of Coeymans, about 10 miles south of the capital.

Police say the decision was made after experts agreed tranquilizers would not be effective and no portable corrals could hold the animals.”

Maine Governor to crack down on welfare abuse

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  Finally a common sense piece of work on the kind of issue that really bothers hard working Americans that foot the bills for welfare abuses.  Maine Governor Paul LePage has unveiled some new reforms that would place tough restrictions on Welfare and EBT cards.  

While I don’t know if my personal complaint will be part of the package, I have always been a proponent of restricting certain food items such as delicacies, high end cuts of meat, soda, pet food, and other luxury items.

Fox News:  Maine Gov. Paul LePage's tough proposals, unveiled earlier this month, would prohibit using welfare benefits to buy alcohol, tobacco, lottery tickets and tattoos. LePage also wants to require applicants to apply for three jobs before being eligible, and ban the use of EBT (electronic benefit transfer) cards to withdraw cash outside of Maine. 

Kansas Republican Gov. Sam Brownback last week signed similar legislation, banning benefits for everything from booze to concerts to lingerie.

Gen. Dempsey makes huge gaffe

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  In what was very likely a moment he wishes he could take back, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey stated that the City of Ramadi in Iraq was “not symbolic in any way.”  Among many others taking exception to that statement was Gold Star Mother Debbie Lee whose son was killed there.  She said in part:

“I am shaking and tears are flowing down my cheeks as I watch the news and listen to the insensitive, pain inflicting comments made by you in regards to the fall of Ramadi."

“The city itself is not symbolic in any way” oh really are you willing to meet with me and with the families who have lost a son, daughter, husband, wife, father, mother, aunt, uncle, grandson, or teammate?”

Sometimes tattered, but never to be trampled

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  The Flag of the USA is not to be disrespected.  The 1st Amendment may offer the “right” to do so, but that doesn’t make it right.  What the student at Valdosta State University have been doing was and is the epitome of disrespect, and is a symptomatic of what our young people are being fed in academia now and during the past several decades.

Clearly, one Patriot, a Veteran named Michelle Manhart was not going to see our flag trampled by these students.  She took action, walked into the area of this despicable act, picked up the flag, and refused to see it trampled and disrespected further.  

She should have received a medal, however she was arrested instead.  The University and students alike should hang their heads in shame for her treatment.

Freedom Outpost:  In a valiant display of patriotism, Michelle Manhart picked up an American flag that was being trampled on by a bunch of young university punks. Keep in mind that this had been going on for three days at Valdosta State University. When Michelle stood up and did what the campus and no one else was willing to do, she resisted turning the flag over to police and stood her ground, guarding the flag until she was overpowered by police and arrested.  

Michelle told what happened in her Facebook post, which as of the writing of this article had nearly 27,000 shares:

“This first picture is what was going on at Valdosta "State" University for 3 days...The campus refused to do anything about it ... So we decided to get the flag and give it the respect it deserved...We just wanted to remove it and dispose of it properly...The American flag represents our Freedom why would you want to walk on that??? Please repost as much as possible make this go viral people need to see the truth...I wonder if "Donors" of VSU are ok with this blatant disrespect of the flag.”

Open carry in Texas soon to be law

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  It looks like the State of Texas is about to make history once again as it readies to allow the open carry of firearms by citizens.  The Texas House and Senate have both passed bills and it is now a matter of preparing and presenting a “squared up” version to the governor who is expected to sign the measure into law.

Fox News:  Austin –  Texas is poised to become the largest state in the U.S. to allow citizens to openly carry handguns, a change long sought by gun-rights activists.

The Texas House of Representatives on Friday voted 96-35 to allow residents with concealed-handgun licenses to openly carry their guns in public in holsters. A similar open-carry measure passed the Texas Senate last month; the two open-carry bills must be squared before being sent to Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, who has indicated support for the idea.

In contrast to its reputation for being permissive on firearms, Texas is one of six states, including California, New York and Florida, that currently bars citizens from openly carrying handguns. People who want to carry handguns in public on their person must obtain concealed-weapons permits and keep the weapons hidden.
