When devastating hurricanes struck the East Coast, even houses of worship were
A local television station interviewed a woman from New York’s Harlem area and
asked how the loss of churches in the area had affected their lives.
Without hesitation, the woman replied, "I don't know 'bout all them other peoples,
but we haven't gone to Churches in years. We gets our chicken from Popeye's."
The look on the interviewer's face was priceless.
Now you understand how we got our president!
Federal appeals courts strikes down California's concealed weapons permit rules
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A divided federal appeals court has struck down California's concealed weapons rules, saying they violate the Second Amendment right to bear arms.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Thursday that California is wrong to require applicants to show good cause to receive a permit to carry a concealed weapon. The court ruled that all law-abiding citizens are entitled to carry concealed weapons outside the home for self-defense purposes.
The divided three-judge panel disagreed with two other federal appeals courts that have upheld permit rules similar to California's.
The U.S. Supreme Court often takes cases when federal appeals courts issue conflicting rulings.
The Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that law-abiding citizens can keep handguns in the home for self-defense purposes, but didn't address whether that right extends outside the home.

Two people have been hospitalized after a lunchtime shooting Monday at the Kroger grocery store in Lawrenceville, police said.
Police have arrested one individual in connection with the shootingauthorities said.
The two people injured were taken to Gwinnett Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
One was shot in the leg and the other in the lower torso, Vaughn said.
The motive remains unclear, according to police.
Late in the afternoon, Vaughn said police located the weapon inside the store.
A report of a double shooting was called in to police from the store at 422 Grayson Highway at 12:11 p.m., Lawrenceville police spokesman Capt. Greg Vaughn told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Police were on the scene early Monday afternoon and cordoned off the entrance to the store, authorities said.
Some witnesses fled to the back of the store — even into the store freezers — to escape gunfire, Channel 2 Action News reported.
Some store employees remained outside the store for more than an hour after the shooting, according to Channel 2.
“The scene is a little chaotic,” Vaughn said, noting the unusually large number of customers likely shopping for winter storm supplies. “You can probably imagine with everybody stocking up on bread and milk.”
This is the second shooting in as many weeks in Lawrenceville during the lunch hour, Vaughn said. The previous shooting incident, on West Pike Street near Phoenix High School, ended in a fatality.
All because of the Threat of another Snowfall?....
Shooting happened in Lawrenceville Kroger; which is a suburb of the city.

I REALLY Don't understand Your OBSSESSION with This Board.....Did Etrade Take All of your Money?
In a speech in Wisconsin on Thursday, President Barack Obama insulted perhaps the most fervent members of his political base: art history majors.
The politically clumsy moment occurred during the president’s remarks at General Electric’s Waukesha Gas Engines facility.
After extolling his own economic policies at some length, Obama observed that “manufacturing jobs typically pay well” in the United States. “We want to encourage more of them,” he said.
Then, he began to speak — apparently extemporaneously — about the benefits of working in America’s ever-diminishing manufacturing sector.
“A lot of parents, unfortunately, maybe when they saw a lot of manufacturing being offshored, told their kids you don’t want to go into the trades, you don’t want to go into manufacturing because you’ll lose your job,” the president opined. “Well, the problem is that what happened — a lot of young people no longer see the trades and skilled manufacturing as a viable career.”
So far, so good. Then, however, Obama went on the offensive against America’s most useless major that doesn’t have the word “studies” or “gender” in it.
“But I promise you, folks can make a lot more, potentially, with skilled manufacturing or the trades than they might with an art history degree,” Obama declared.
The president seems to have caught himself pretty quickly.
“Now, nothing wrong with an art history degree — I love art history,” he then swore.
The White House press apparatus dutifully recorded that the gathered crowd engaged in laughter at this point and again right after Obama quipped: “So I don’t want to get a bunch of emails from everybody.”
The president, a graduate of two Ivy League institutions, then said: “I’m just saying you can make a really good living and have a great career without getting a four-year college education as long as you get the skills and the training that you need.”
And the crowd at the gas facility reportedly broke into applause.
Since Obama’s speech, America’s small and tremendously weak art history lobby has sprung into action.
Linda Downs, the executive director of the College Art Association criticized Obama for “denigrating” art history and, she suggested, the humanities in general, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education.
“It is worth remembering that many of the nation’s most important innovators, in fields including high technology, business, and even military service, have degrees in the humanities,” Downs wrote. “Humanities graduates play leading roles in corporations, engineering, international relations, government, and many other fields where their skills and creating thinking play a critical role.”
They offer a setup for "Local News".....as long as it's Sunnyvale California!
YAHOO.....FIX YOUR STUFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They seem to be using Shotguns for their Mass Shootings now!
I just received an audit on my tax return for 2012 back from the IRS. It puzzles me!!!
They are questioning how many dependents I claimed.
I guess it was because of my response to the question: "List all dependents?"
I replied: 12 million illegal immigrants; 3 million crack heads;
42 million unemployed people on food stamps,
2 million people in over 243 prisons;
Half of Mexico ; and 535 persons in the U.S. House and Senate."
1 useless President.
Evidently, this was NOT an acceptable answer.
I KEEP ASKING MYSELF, WHO The Hell DID I MISS?
opps!....Seems we had one here in Georgia too. Somebody was shot in the arm at a High School in Albany Ga.
Add that to the one in Philadelphia.....Hell there are probably more that don't even make the news considering that the Thug mentality is the Law of the Land Today!
Seems you can't Ram it down Everybody's throat.....
Mario Pescante, an Italian who has been an IOC member since 1994, criticized the United States on Wednesday for including #$%$ members as part of its Olympic delegation to Sochi next month.
Back in December, President Barack Obama named three openly #$%$ athletes — tennis great Billie Jean King, figure skating legend Brian Boitano and hockey player Caitlin Cahow — to the American delegation. The move was interpreted as a not-so-subtle statement against Russian president Vladimir Putin and his country's legislative discrimination toward #$%$s and lesbians.
From the Associated Press:
''It's absurd that a country like that sends four lesbians to Russia just to demonstrate that in their country #$%$ rights have (been established),'' Mario Pescante said at an Italian Olympic Committee meeting in Milan on Wednesday, in comments widely reported by Italian media. ''The games should not be an occasion and a stage to promote rights that sports supports daily.''
The Italian Olympic Committee would not confirm or deny Pescante's comments, but his speech was reported by the Gazzetta dello Sport and the ANSA news agency.
Asked for clarification later by The Associated Press, Pescante said he is not against #$%$s.
''Of course not,'' the 75-year-old Pescante told The AP by telephone. ''I just wanted to make the point not to let politics interfere with the Olympics.''
Pescante is not a newcomer to the world of the IOC. He played a big role during the Turin Games in 2006 and even served as IOC vice president before resigning in 2012 when Rome's bid for the 2020 Games fell apart. As such, you'd think he'd recognize that human rights issues have always found a global forum on the Olympic stage.
But even if this was the first time such issues were being brought up during the Olympics, Pescante should be ripped for labeling the mere presence of three #$%$ athletes among a larger group as a disruptive political play.
