The Rant

The people of Connecticut can sleep peacefully now that they know that future mass murders can only put 10 rounds of ammo in a high capacity clip for fear of breaking the law.

A begrudging tip fo the hat to the NRA, for its iron grip on our politicians, who cannot approve expanded background checks for firearms … .

It is too bad that President Obama didn't go after the Benghazi terrorists' guns with the same fervor that he goes after the guns of law-abiding American citizens.

A writer says that religious people are “crippled” by their beliefs. And I would say that secular humanists are hobbled by theirs. Their deity is mankind or the elite or the self. Their dream is a utopia that is only attainable in their own delusions. Without God, there is no truth.

How can they possibly put more commercials on these TV programs?

I'm not taking my kids to Parkview Field again. First, they have to hear obnoxious drunks behind us at the game. Then we walk around The Harrison, and more foul-mouth drinkers come out of the bar there. Family-friendly is not the atmosphere around so many places to drink downtown.

New York gun owners must now register certain guns (assault weapons) or face penalties. So you are a criminal for owning a gun unless you give the government the ability to take it at will. But we can trust the government to always do the right thing, right?

A ranter says: Is it possible to be too virtuous and too decent a human being to prosper in capitalist America? The answer is no. Tom Monaghan (Domino's Pizza) and Dave Thomas (Wendy's) are both virtuous and charitable men among millions who have succeeded in capitalist America.
