NRA - National Rifle Asses

 

Think Iraq is violent? It is. In March alone, 600 Iraqis died. During the same period here at home, 3,000 Americans died in gun-related violence. It's the same every month. Eighty gun deaths a day. Thirty-thousand a year. Over 30 years, more Americans will die from gun deaths than died in all the wars this nation has ever fought...In chilling testimony to Congress in the wake of Sept. 11, former Attorney General John Ashcroft revealed seized documents in which terrorists were urged to take advantage of America's lax gun laws to easily buy large volumes of deadly weapons.

Weapons like the Barrett .50-caliber rifle, which can pierce armor, hit a target more than 2,000 yards away, and could easily bring down a commercial airliner. Thanks to the gun lobby, the Barrett can still be purchased by anyone age 18 or older who passes a simple background check. Happy hunting.

Brownie's Legacy

 

FEMA exposed taxpayers to significant waste - and possibly violated federal law - by awarding $3.6 billion worth of Hurricane Katrina contracts to companies with poor credit histories and bad paperwork, investigators say.Among the winners was joint venture PRI-DJI, which received $400 million worth of contracts. DJI stands for Del-Jen Inc., a subsidiary of Fluor, one of the original, no-bid winners which has donated more than $930,000 to mostly GOP candidates since 2000.

"More terrifying news on the 2008 presidential election front ... John Edwards has taken the lead in the Iowa polls. What's really frightening about this is Edwards' socialist rhetoric [on screen: Edwards talking about eliminating poverty.] That's class warfare, folks. Eliminating poverty? Who's going to pay for that? Not the poor. They don't have any cash. " --Stephen Colbert
