60% were suicides. There were 11,000 homicides. two-thirds of those are in big cities. I guess paying people to have babies by random sperm donors as a social experiment has been a failure.

Oh, but abstinence-only edumakashun and defunding Planned Parenthood as a social experiment has been such a success.

Meanwhile, I'll be keeping my guns to deal with their uncivilized spawn should they come my way, thank you very much.

That's a roight good plan you got there, guv. Ship the decent-paying jobs overseas, deny people a living wage because Job Creators, keep 'em barefoot and pregnant because Shameless Hussies and then wonder why their "uncivilized spawn" are resorting to violence.

FTFA: "A spokesman for Feinstein's office told the Daily Dot in an email that the senator has been working with Judiciary Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) the issue of encryption and that Burr's office is taking the lead on potential legislation."

Richard Burr is not in the "Democrat Party", whatever that is. S/h/it is not in the "Democratic Party" either. S/h/it is a tea-partying Republican.

Much depends on what the license actually says. If there's a clause that says that he can revoke your license at any time for any reason or for no reason at all, then this might possibly be legal. Why someone would want to pay for such a license is beyond me.

That said, this guy is cutting off his nose to spite his face.

And this bit, "I want to stress that this license change is not against my colleagues in the USA, but against a small rich elite there that misuses the country's power to rule the world. The USA is our worst enemy,” is the same approach that the "small rich elite" uses to justify the embargo against Cuba, and is just as effective.

1) In a so-called right to work state, if you don't pay union dues, the union still has to back you up if you have a grievance. They're not "right to work" laws; they're "right to mooch off the union" laws. Aren't you Hundred Percent Red Blood Americans supposed to be against moochers?

2) If you don't want to join the union, you don't have to work in a union shop. Isn't that how it works when your boss is an asshole, your hours are too long, there's no vacation and the air conditioning is broken? (But not, for some reason, when a couple of Feelthy Queers want you to sign their marriage license.)
