"John McClane: You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Matt Farrell: Then why you doing this?
John McClane: Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Matt Farrell: Ah. That's what makes you that guy. "

Words To Live By
"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

From The INBOX: A Question About Liberal Logic

Here’s a question for your readers…
If passing a law forbidding you to own an assault rifle is all they need to do to make us safer, then why not just pass a law against killing people in schools or shopping malls?
Think about that for a minute.
Great question, which deserves expansion to prove the lunacy of the gun ban logic.

Why do bars have parking lots?

Its illegal to drink and drive, so why do we allow people to drive to bars. (Obviously excluding Minneapolis and St. Paul which have essentially banned driving and parking anywhere in their urban utopias)
Isn’t it pretty much entrapment or accessory to murder depending on “luck” to allow people to so easily do such a deadly, dangerous, and clearly illegal?

(Source STRIB) Drunken-driving deaths in Minnesota last year were down 40 percent from a decade ago, but there’s still a lot of work to do to save needlessly lost lives, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Office of Traffic Safety said Friday.

That calculation was part of the agency’s release of its final 2011 drunken-driving data, in which it said 111 people died last year as the result of drunken driving, compared to 185 in 2002.

The agency also cited these numbers: 29,257 Minnesotans were arrested for DWI in 2011, one in seven state drivers has a DWI on record, and 1,265 Minnesotans have 10 or more DWIs.

From 2007 to 2011, 651 people were killed in drunken-driving crashes in Minnesota, an average of 130 deaths annually. During this same period, 166,962 motorists were arrested for DWI.

If safety of society is going to trump all else, guns are not the primary threat of great bodily harm.
