AND ANOTHER THOUGHT ON THE WHITEHOUSE SHOOTING INCIDENT

Handguns are virtually banned in the District of Columbia. A 1976 law passed by the D.C. City Council requires all firearms to be
registered. All gun owners have to be licensed. And the sales of new handguns are prohibited. It's illegal for anyone to bring a handgun into the District or to transport a handgun through the city.

Did Robert Pickett know of these laws when he took his .38-caliber revolver to the fence outside the South Lawn of the White House yesterday morning? Maybe, maybe not. Did those laws prevent him from brandishing the gun at police officers? Of course not!

Will more laws prevent nutcases like Robert Pickett or William Baker from doing what they did this week? Nope.





POSITIVE BENEFITS OF A TAX CUT

Democrats will tell you that a tax cut is a bad idea. They'll call it all sorts of things from "irresponsible" to "extreme." They'll tell you they need to prop up Social Security for another few years while they fix everything. They'll tell you that letting Americans keep more of their earnings will lead to reduced government tax revenue.

It's just not so. Look at these numbers from the Heritage Foundation. In 1964, Congress passed John F. Kennedy's tax cut plan. The top tax rates fell from 91 percent to 70 percent--and between 1961 and 1968, the economy expanded by more than 42 percent, after inflation. And tax revenues grew 62 percent. That's a 33 percent INCREASE in tax revenue after you take out
inflation. 

Ronald Reagan slashed the top tax rate from 70 percent to 28 percent during his two terms. Federal income tax revenue rose from $244 billion in 1980 to $446 billion in 1989. After inflation, that's a 14 percent increase. Economic growth averaged almost 4 percent.

Don't believe the lies, folks. A tax cut puts more of your own money in your pocket. It puts you in the driver's seat. It gives you the power to put more money into your child's college education, or maybe some home improvements, or maybe a new car. And that's what has the big-government Democrats hopping mad--they have other plans for your money. They want social programs and entitlements and all sorts of vote-buying measures to make sure you stay fat and happy on the Democratic plantation.






ANOTHER PC HYPER-SENSITIVE OUTRAGE - "Jesus Loves You" Bricks

This one is from Newburyport, Mass. 

It seems they have a public park there with a brick walkway. Citizens were invited to help fund the park by paying to put messages on some of the bricks. Now it seems that two of the bricks have been removed. One said “For all the unborn children.” The other brick said “Jesus Loves You.”

A spokeswoman for the city said that the bricks made people feel “unwelcome” in the park. 

Anyone who would feel unwelcome in a public park because one 8 inch brick says “Jesus loves you” should damn well feel unwelcome. People suffering from acute obsessive-compulsive-hyper-sensitivity syndrome should just damn well lock themselves in their homes and stay the hell away from normal civilized society. If these people feel unwelcome they should be seeking professional help. They’re sick whackos who are hemlock to a free society. 

Man, we really need some more beds in our mental institutions out there.
