I had a great day at the Chestnut Mountain shooting range down in Whitfield County over the weekend. (It's a NPS facility,BTW) And you want to know the best thing? The other shooters were young, old, male, female and at least on person of color.We were having a safe, wonderful time exercising our rights lawfully.To a person, the ones I spoke to were the kind of people that put more into their community than they take out.They work, they raise kiddos,they play by the rules. And they vote. As long as we share the company of such people,Clay can run one of these cartoons til doomsday and it won't make an iota of difference.

Thanks again, founding fathers, for giving us a right that arrogant libs can't take away!

He's NOT trustworthy. Period. Even his former supporters are starting to realize that.

"I think everyone can start practicing saying, "Madam President."

Sign around the neck of a disgusting hobo out at the exit ramp:

Homeless, hungry Husband was 42nd president Please help. God Bless

Reardon-

Well played sir, well played indeed.If I knew who you were, I'd buy you lunch today. But one minor correction...Its Trillions (with a "T) spent, not Billions (with a "B"). We passed out of billions a long time ago.

Prarie Dog nailed it. Everybody wants clean(er) air, clan(er) water and the like,but they want that guy over there behind that tree to pay for it. Helps if he's "rich". We are not even in the first inning of the the changes and sacrifices that will have to happen to satisfy the liberal radical enviro-nuts. The cost has been cleverly shifted,mitigated and hidden to ease the pain. But when people start contemplating 15-20 cent a KWH electricity because it's what renewables cost,there are going to be a lot of unemployed Democrat politicians.We talk a good game about "green" energy,but we go to "Save The Earth" rallies in Chevy Tahoes. Just wait until you have to foot the bill.

It's analogous to that old saying - " Everyone wants a free Tibet, no one wants to free Tibet"

"Now we get t witness a day of finger pointing that most assuredly will involve holding President Obama totally responsible."

Ah, the subtle bigotry of low expectations.Since he seems so powerless,maybe he really wasn't up to the job he ran for.

Parents have 18 years to prepare for the costs of college. The first two years (at a community or junior college) can be nearly free of real,out-of-pocket net cost.The only people that have any excuse to graduate with a high level of debt are doctors.The "student debt crisis" is just another example of non existent planning and an inability to save and invest for a better future for our children

Apparently "giving back" after graduation doesn't include the loan money used to get there.

Love it that Bennett has his undies in a bunch! It means that the system works just as designed.

The founding fathers knew that not every lawmaker would be a Washington or a Jefferson. They knew that there would be a lot of Harry Reid's sprinkled in-men who put their lust for power and fortune above the good of the people. That's why they gifted us the system we have.It keeps a small minority of 51 senators and their crooked Boss Hogg in the WH from just wiping their feet on the country and that makes libs really,really mad.Delicious!

Thanks again,founding fathers!

This all makes for good comment section back and forth,but the reality is:

1)There is no political will to spend the kind of money on the palliative "solutions" offered up by liberals. Government can put some restrictions in place,change or affect this or that behavior,but in the end,the quest for a better standard of living will trump all of this do-good polar bear hugging. Sorry,but we're not going back to some primitive existence so that libs can ride around on their moral high horse.

2) Related to point (1). When the voting public sees Al Gore and his buds getting rich and riding around in tint-window tax tractors spewing out lots of hydrocarbon waste,they'll get wise to the scam and support for carbon taxes and icy homes will...melt like an icecube on Gunbarrel in August.Indeed, a lot of them have sen it and know that they're being conned. At some level, even people that sort of believe the whole "climate change" story know that it will result in a better life only for some people. People like Al Gore. When taxpayers actually have to write a check to "fix" these supposed ills,then all of this stuff will go away.It's like that old saying-Everyone wants a Free Tibet. No one wants to free Tibet. Global Warming theory is charming as long as its a theory that we can believe for free. When it starts costing money, folks might just learn to like it a degree or two warmer in the winter.

So I wouldn't get too worked up about the whole "climate change" boogeyman. Americans (for the most part) are a freedom loving bunch. The amount of government coercion and taxation needed to "fix" the problem would never in a million years get through congress.

For that, we should all say "thank you, founding fathers!"
