The Good News and Bad News for Hillary

a) The good news - the fact that she (arguably) has plausible deniability as to whether or not she knew that the emails were classified.......b) The bad news - the fact that if she asserts this as a defense she looks like a total incompetent and a moron.

On the Fact that a Sheriff's Deputy Was Shot Point-Blank Execution-Style (By a Black Dude) in Texas the Other Day WHILE PUMPING GAS

His life didn't "matter" apparently.

On the Claim By Numerous Historians that Teddy Roosevelt Made the Food Supply Safer

This is largely another myth. The real truth is that the food supply was getting significantly better well before the government stuck its nose into things and the real heroes in this regard were Nicolas-Francois Appert, Louis Pasteur, Gail Borden, Joseph Campbell, Abraham Anderson, John Henry Heinz, Alexander Twinning, John Gorrie, James Harrison, Charles Tellier, Clarence Birdseye, Frederick Tutor, J.B. Sutherland, T.C. Eastman, Gustavus Franklin Swrift, Andrew Chase, Philip D. Armour, John Plankington, etc. - in that it was these folks who made the major advances in frozen foods, jarring, pasteurizing, canning, transportation and logistics, sanitation, refrigeration and storage, etc.. - this, while TR wasted his time on Coca Cola, rectified whiskey, and corn syrup. What an asshole.

On the Fact that (According to the F.B.I. -, of the 8,583 Total Gun-Related Homicides in 2011, Only 323 of Them Were Committed with Rifles

So, just for some perspective here, there were 1,694 murders committed with knives and switchblades (424% more than with rifles), 496 murders committed with blunt objects such as hammers (54% more than with rifles), and 726 murders committed with personal weapons such as hands, feet, elbows, and knees (125% more than with rifles)....Rifles are not a big part of the problem, folks, and how anybody can continue to assert that we are going to appreciably reduce the murder rate (or even reduce it at all in that the murderer will simply use a different weapon) by banning certain rifles (the criteria being that they look scary) is ludicrous.

On the Fact that (According to Jim Powell's "Bully Boy") Teddy Roosevelt's Reason for Populating the West Was this Crazy Fear that it Would Soon Be Taken Over By a Foreign Power

That is Nixonian and then some. I mean, what, he thought that the British, French, Russians, or Japanese were going to do a Winfield Scott type landing on the shores of California (sending their armadas around Tierra Del Fuego)? THAT IS INSANE!! HE WAS INSANE!!

On the Fact that Seven Out of the Ten Safest Cities in the U.S. (Pertaining to Violent Crime) Have Received Either a D or F Rating By the Hyper-Leftist, Anti-Gun Activist Group, Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence

So, in other words, there is no significant connection between gun control and violent crime in America -
