So the Senate Democrats wanted to do some new gun laws in the wake of Orlando, despite admitting that none of their new laws would have stopped Orlando. The Democrats wanted new restrictions on law-abiding citizens so that they could feel like they'd done something.

The workings of the modern liberal mind never cease to amaze me.

The shootings in Orlando have proven several things beyond any reasonable doubt...

For my liberal friends:
So, President Nixon had his cronies bug some meetings of his political opponents. He then covered it up. He was threatened with impeachment, took responsibility for the actions of his underlings, and resigned. I am fine with that.
If President Nixon had instead refused to send the military to rescue an embassy staff that was under attack from our sworn enemies, and the staff died, and his administration organized the sanitization of talking points to avoid blaming our sworn enemies, and then tried to cover it up, and got caught, I believe that again, he would be threatened with impeachment, would take responsibility for the actions of his underlings, and would resign. I would be fine with that too.
If President Nixon had also, at the same time, sent the IRS to AUDIT his political enemies, instead of just spying on them, and he had joked about it several years ago, and the IRS was forced to apologize, again, he would have resigned. Again, I would be fine with that.
So, for my liberal friends... Will Obama be man enough to resign for his crimes?
Will you be fine with that?
Or are you just a partisan hack?

Yep, that's right. Certain federal agencies are working hard (commendably, I might add) to reduce the impact of mandatory cuts caused by the Obama sequester on the taxpayers and citizens who need their services.
However, this directly contradicts the Obama agenda of trying to blame the Republicans for Obama's sequester, because for voters to punish the Republicans for Obama's sequester, there has to be enough suffering for the mainstream media to cover.
From the Washington Times:
So, for those of you Obama voters sitting at home, unemployed, trying to find evidence that Obama cares about you, just think about the skyrocketing gas prices, the fact that there are no jobs available, and don't forget the record high stock market!
Then reread the paragraph above. Obama wants to make sure that you FEEL the sequester. It needs to HURT.
That way, the press will blame the Republicans, and you'll believe it - and you'll be more likely to go to the polls in 2014 to solidify his power.

Today, the WSJ points out a fascinating conversation between a CNN reporter and our President:
Yellin: Mr. President, to your question, what could you do--first of all, couldn't you just have them down here and refuse to let them leave the room until you have a deal?
Obama: I mean, Jessica, I am not a dictator. I'm the President. So, ultimately, if Mitch McConnell or John Boehner say, we need to go to catch a plane, I can't have Secret Service block the doorway, right?Why isn't Ms. Yellin asking the President to compromise? Why isn't she urging him that any deal is better than inaction, even if he doesn't get what he wants? Why isn't he being encouraged to 'move to the center'?
Well, it's because 'compromise' and 'move to the center' is code for 'do what the liberals want'. Compromising with Republicans takes things in a direction that CNN finds totally unbearable. Hence, the idea just never seems to come up.

Thanks to NBC New York, we learn that Mayor Bloomberg thinks telecommuting is dumb. Wow. Let me make sure I understand the big picture here.
- Bloomberg taxes vehicles coming into the city, to reduce traffic, emissions, noise, and a lot of other things that are bad for people and nature.
- Bloomberg wants everyone who works for every New York company to come to the office.
- Bloomberg taxes vehicles coming into the city, to increase taxes. He does this under the auspice of reducing traffic, emissions, noise, and a lot of other things that are bad for people and nature.
- Bloomberg wants everyone who works for every New York company to come to the office, to maximize the taxes that are paid.
