Shiloh Brew & Chew Owner Sharma Floyd Says … “Guns are Welcome on Premises”

If you thought Shiloh Brew & Chew was a Honkey-tonk, redneck bar that served up beer, Bourbon, sold chewing tobacco and had spittoons at every table, you would be wrong and a judgmental liberal. Welcome to one of Eastern Tennessee’s most safe restaurant.

Guns Are Welcome

In Fact ‘Shiloh Brew and Chew’ is a family restaurant in Maryville, Tennessee where the “Brew” stands for their coffee and the “Chew” for their food menu from burgers to steak to pizza and the owner, Sharma Floyd, believes in the Second Amendment with a sign posted outside that says,  ”Guns are Welcome on Premises”. The owner of this Eastern Tennessee eatery put up the sign after she read an article about a store in North Carolina that put up a sign that said no weapons allowed and was robbed two days later.  Sharma says that the patrons response has been far more positive than the lone negative one.

Rolling Stones … The 5 Most Dangerous Guns in America … Reads Like a 4th Grade Essay

Hey Rolling Stone … please stick to reporting on music, because this article is nothing short of embarrassing.

Rolling Stone has a list of the top 5 most dangerous guns in America as per By Kristen Gwynne. In other words, basically any gun that actually shoots a bullet or buckshot is dangerous. HUH? Looking at the title one might think that Ms. Gwynne was going to provide us a list of the actual brand name and type of guns that are used in most crimes or murders, rather than providing us a 4th grade essay on “Most dangerous Guns in America for Dummies”. My apologies to 4th graders across the United States. How exactly can all guns be the most dangerous guns in America. As The Truth About Guns opines, “In other words, guns are the most dangerous guns in America. Small ones more than big ones, although really small ones not so much. Well that’s just dumb.” YES IT IS. I cannot even call this media bias. it’s media stupidity.

Guns for Dummies

Rolling Stones list of the 5 most dangerous guns:

  1. Pistols
  2. Revolvers
  3. Rifles
  4. Shotguns
  5. Derringers

You have got to read the article to get a true appreciation of just how far Rolling Stone has fallen and what passes for news in today media. With regards to a revolver: “Some grenade launchers, shotguns, and rifles also have rotating barrels, but the term ‘revolver’ is generally used to describe handguns. Revolver types include single and double-action firing mechanisms, the latter of which does not require a cocking action separate from the trigger pull”. Rifles on the other hand, “were created to improve the accuracy of smoothbore muskets, for which the musket ball was often an bad fit due to manufacturing complications. Accurate and easy-to-aim, rifles are now the most common hunting weapon.” GOOD GRIEF.

Some one might want to tell Rolling Stones that knives, hands, fists, feet, clubs and baseball bats are more dangerous and actually killed four of the five “guns” referenced above. And look here, for 2012, clubs, blunt objects, hands fists and feet all out-pace firearms.

Sarah Palin Uses the “I” Word for Obama & Fires Back at Attorney General Eric Holder at Western Conservative Summit … “I Don’t Need Lectures From Eric Holder”

PALIN SHREDS THE ALL …

At the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, Colorado former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin slammed President Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and the gutless GOP establishment Congress who do nothing about a lawless president. Palin stated, you hear politicians these days denouncing Barack Obama saying he is a lawless, imperial president who ignores court orders and changes laws by executive fiat. And refuses to enforce laws that he just doesn’t like.” Palin went on to say, “That is true, but the question is … hey politicians what ya going to do about it?” Then she went there with the “I ” word. Palin said, “we need a little less talk and a lot more action …  There is only one remedy for a president who commits high crimes and misdemeanors and it’s impeachment.”

Then Palin fired back at Eric Holder, “I don’t need lectures from Eric Holder, a guy, get this, so incompetent that he denied voter fraud existed even after someone claimed that they were Eric Holder and they got his ballot and they voted in D.C.”

“Oh dear, Eric. Not many cabinet members in U.S. history have been held in contempt of Congress, but he still wants to weigh in,” Palin said.

Palin pushed back on Holder’s claim that race might still be a major factor in America, calling it a “disgusting, false charge.”

“Try to get it,” Palin said. “Illegal immigration hurts all Americans – all races and backgrounds.”

Western Conservative Summit: 7-19-14

The Hill:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin hit back at Attorney General Eric Holder on Saturday for criticizing her call to impeach President Obama over the border crisis.

“I don’t need lectures from Eric Holder, a guy – get this – so incompetent that he denied voter fraud existed even after someone claimed that they were Eric Holder and they got his ballot and they voted in D.C.,” Palin said at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver.

Palin was referring to an April 2012 video by a conservative activist that showed a man entering a Washington, D.C., polling center and requesting Holder’s ballot, offering up the official’s mailing address. The video did not actually show a ballot being cast in Holder’s name.

Earlier this month the former Republican vice presidential candidate called for the president’s impeachment for his handling of illegal immigration. “This unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say ‘no mas,’” Palin wrote on the Breitbart website.

Holder said in an interview aired Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that Palin “wasn’t a particularly good vice presidential candidate” and “an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.”

“Oh dear, Eric. Not many cabinet members in U.S. history have been held in contempt of Congress, but he still wants to weigh in,” Palin said.

Palin pushed back on Holder’s claim that race might still be a major factor in America, calling it a “disgusting, false charge.”

“Try to get it,” Palin said. “Illegal immigration hurts all Americans – all races and backgrounds.”

AG Eric Holder Bashes Sarah Palin on ABC’s ‘This Week’ Says … “She Wasn’t Particularly Good VP Candidate, She’s an Even Worse Judge of Who to Impeach”

Hmm, one might say Eric Holder isn’t a particularly good Attorney General and an even worse judge of what scandals should be prosecuted …

Eric Holder, Barack Obama’s attorney general took to ABC’s ‘This Week’ to bash Sarah Palin stating, “She wasn’t a particularly good vice presidential candidate. She’s an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.” Really? With all the scandals that Holder could be prosecuting and getting to the bottom of, he is bashing Palin? Where is Holder on Benghazi-gate, Fast & Furious and IRS-gate? Where is Eric Holder in enforcing US immigration laws? HOLDER IS AWOL. Holder is the most political, partisan attorney general ever. This political hack will do nothing to investigate an out of control Obama administration because his allegiances lie with Obama, not America and the US Constitution. While we are at it, Eric Holder should be impeached as well. Make it a two-fer.

Administration efforts to pass comprehensive immigration reform, for example, have failed. Asked about calls by Sarah Palin to impeach Obama over the administration’s immigration policies, Holder said: “She wasn’t a particularly good vice presidential candidate. She’s an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.”

Holder similarly dismissed calls for himself to be impeached for declining to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS scandal. Holder insisted that a special prosecutor isn’t necessary, with “career people” and FBI agents “doing a good, professional job” investigating the matter.

As per Breitbart, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and other senior “establishment” Republicans have dismissed Palin’s calls and instead have opted to file a lawsuit against Obama’s executive overreach. Also, House Judiciary Committee chair Rep. Bob Goodlatte, (R-VA), said on “This Week” that he won’t push for the impeachment of President Obama, despite recent calls by some Republicans. Of course the GOP won’t, they are gutless.

“We are not working on or drawing up articles of impeachment,” Goodlatte told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on “This Week” Sunday. “The Constitution is very clear as to what constitutes grounds for impeachment of the President of the United States. He has not committed the kind of criminal acts that call for that.”

WANNA BET!!!

Eric Holder is hardly a credible source to talk about a poor candidate for a job or being able to judge anyone. Holder has been a disaster as AG.

VP Joe Biden Makes Disparaging Comment on CNN … ‘Tea Baggers’ Preventing New Gun-Control Laws

How about enforcing the gun laws that already are on the books before you start making more?

According to Vice President Joe Biden on CNN, the NRA and Tea Party patriots are responsible for upholding the Second Amendment and preventing an overreaching and imperial government from passing new laws that would take away “We the People’s” right to bear arms. Of course Biden said it in a much more disgusting and disparaging manner. Who knew that it was “Teabaggers”, individuals  who slaps another person in the face with their nad sack, that were responsible for preventing new gun control laws. Nice, eh? But what else would be expect from this vile, divisive Obama presidency?

Biden_gun

Vice president Joe Biden has disparaged gun-rights advocates as “tea baggers,” CNN host John Walsh told reporters today. Walsh, the former host of America’s Most Wanted, recounted that he bonded with Biden over the need for more gun control and their distaste for the National Rifle Association..

“I said to Joe Biden, ‘90 percent of Americans are for a responsible background check for a gun, and you know what this Congress has done? Not voted on it, not brought it to the floor, not introduced a bill,’” he recalled to reporters during an event for his upcoming program, a crime show called The Hunt. “I said, ‘They’re all scared shitless of the NRA, aren’t they?’”

“‘John, every one of them,’” the vice president replied, according to Walsh. “‘Because the NRA will run a tea-bagger against you. . . . They’ll put 5 million bucks against you.’”

Imagine being called names and the VP using a slur like “Teabagger” for some one who finds it important to protect the 2nd Amendment to the Bill of Rights of the US Constitution. But use any type of slur against Gays, transgenders or even call someone an “illegal” and you are condemned as being hateful.

On another note, hey John Walsh, you have been a tremendous victims rights advocate, but don’t push it. I can respect John Walsh for all that he has done for missing persons and being a victim advocate, but that does not give him carte blanche on opinions on crime.  Just because you claim you can see both sides, does not mean you are not bias. Case and point, you claim that it is ludicrous for the NRA’s solution to arm every grammar-school 80-year-old teacher with a gun. Really John, an 80 year old teacher. Who is being ludicrous? Walsh went on to say, politicians are “scared sh*tless” of the NRA. One might say it’s about time these individuals are scared of something. But let’s get your facts straight John, it is not the NRA that politicians fear, it is the millions and millions of gun owning voters who are doing nothing more than using their Second Amendment rights. I would have expected more from some one of John Walsh than take the lazy, liberal way out of wanting new gun control laws that the LEFT uses as a direct assault on individuals legal rights to bear Arms.

“I am the guy that has seen both sides of the issue,” Walsh told reporters Monday. “I own guns. I’m the father of a murdered child. I’ve done nothing but track violence in America since my son was murdered. We have a serious problem with guns in this country. And we refuse to address it. And the NRA solution to arm every grammar-school 80-year-old teacher with a gun is absolutely ludicrous,” he said.

Walsh said the NRA is so deeply in the pocket of the gun industry that “they’re not a lobbyist on Capitol Hill, they’re a gun manufacturer rep.” He also said Vice President Joe Biden recently agreed with him that politicians are “scared s—less” of the NRA.

SCOTUS Decision Day on Hobby Lobby Challenging ObamaCare’s Contraception Mandate … Major Decision Just Hours Away (Update: Hobby Lobby Wins 5-4 Over Obamacare)

1st Amendment and Freedom of Religion at stake this morning at the SCOTUS …

It is decision day for The Supreme Court of the United States on the issue before them of Holly Lobby challenging the Obamacare contraception mandate. Holly Lobby, the for-profit businesses is challenging the requirement in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) that employers cover contraception for women at no extra charge among a range of preventive benefits in employee health plans. As the National Journal reports, SCOTUS  won’t strike down Obamacare’s contraception mandate completely because that is not what the two companies, Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties, have asked of the Court. They haven’t asked the justices to ax the entire policy; however, a ruling for the law’s challengers could still render the policy toothless for millions of women.

FOX News:

The court meets for a final time Monday to release decisions in its two remaining cases before the justices take off for the summer.

The most contentious is that brought by Oklahoma City-based Hobby Lobby and a furniture maker in Pennsylvania. The for-profit businesses have challenged the requirement in the Affordable Care Act that employers cover contraception for women at no extra charge among a range of preventive benefits in employee health plans. It is the first major challenge to ObamaCare to come before the court since the justices upheld the law’s individual requirement to buy health insurance two years ago.

Supporters of Hobby Lobby cite a few factors potentially leaning in their favor, including the tone of oral arguments in March and a unanimous decision last week finding President Obama overreached in making recess appointments to a labor board.

“Absolutely, we win — we are very confident after oral argument in March that we will prevail in this case,” Hannah Smith, senior counsel for The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which represents Hobby Lobby, told Fox News. She suggested this, too, is a case of government “overreach.”

CNN – Jonathan Turley, Professor of Law at George Washington University discusses the ramification of today’s SCOTUS decision.

CNN VIDEO

I predict 6-3 in favor of Hobby Lobby. Then again, this SCOTUS has disappointed me before.

UPDATE I: Hobby Lobby wins SCOTUS decision 5-4 over Obamacare.

Justice Samuel Alito wrote the major opinion and said, it was difficult to distinguish between closely held corporations and the people who own them. The religious liberty law was not intended to discriminate “against men and women who wish to run their businesses as for-profit corporations in the manner required by their religious beliefs.”

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday ruled that owners of private companies can object on religious grounds to a provision of President Barack Obama’s healthcare law that requires employers to provide insurance covering birth control for women.

The decision, which applies only to a small number of family or other closely-held companies, means an estimated several thousand women whose health insurance comes via such companies may have to obtain certain forms of birth control coverage elsewhere.

In a 5-4 vote along ideological lines, the justices said the companies can seek an exemption from the so-called birth control mandate of the law known as Obamacare. The companies in the case said they did not object to all birth control but certain methods they said were tantamount to abortion, which they oppose for religious reasons.

In their last decision of the nine-month term, the justices ruled for the first time that for-profit companies can make claims under a 1993 federal law called the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that was enacted to protect religious liberty.

Democrats go mental over the decision and threaten to respond to SCOTUS decision. But wait, isn’t it now law of the land? Isn’t that what Democrats, including Obama, say when the GOP tries to end Obamacare?

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX 36) Bill: “The Dog Ate My Tax Receipts Act” Allows Taxpayers to Use Same Lame Excuses as IRS

WHY SHOULDN’T THE AMERICAN TAX PAYERS BE ALLOWED TO USE THE SAME EXCUSES AS THE IRS?

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX 36) is introducing a bill to Congress that would allow “We the People” to be on the same footing as the IRS. After all, it is supposed to be a government of, by and for the people. The bill titled, “The Dog Ate My Tax Receipts Act” would allow taxpayers who do not produce documents for the Internal Revenue Service to be able to offer a variety of dubious excuses similar to the same ones that the IRS offered to House investigators in the IRS scandal where the IRS purposely targeted conservative non-profit groups.

Feel free to come up with your own, maybe they can be submitted as amendments.

Dog ate my homework

“The United States was founded on the belief government is subservient and accountable to the people.  Taxpayers shouldn’t be expected to follow laws the Obama administration refuses to follow themselves,” said Stockman.  “Taxpayers should be allowed to offer the same flimsy, obviously made-up excuses the Obama administration uses.”

Under Stockman’s bill, “The Dog Ate My Tax Receipts Act,” taxpayers who do not provide documents requested by the IRS can claim one of the following reasons:

1.         The dog ate my tax receipts
2.         Convenient, unexplained, miscellaneous computer malfunction
3.         Traded documents for five terrorists
4.         Burned for warmth while lost in the Yukon
5.         Left on table in Hillary’s Book Room
6.         Received water damage in the trunk of Ted Kennedy’s car
7.         Forgot in gun case sold to Mexican drug lords
8.         Forced to recycle by municipal Green Czar
9.         Was short on toilet paper while camping
10.       At this point, what difference does it make?

Congressman Charlie Rangel Compares Tea Party To Hamas Terrorists (AUDIO)

If there was aver a reason for term limits or competency tests for politicians, the below audio of Charles Rangel is exhibit one.

In an interview expected to air tonight on Talkline Communications with Zev Brenner, Congressman Charlie Rangel (D-NY) compared the Tea Party to the Hamas terrorist group. Really Charlie, comparing the Tea Party to a terrorists group who kills innocent people? In a discussing with Rangel, who could barely make sense and struggled to connect the dots,  Rangel went on to say that the Tea Party wing of the Republican Party is equivalent to the Hamas terror group as part of the newly created Palestinian unity government.

Who knew the the principles of Our Founding Fathers were like Hamas? In the mind of a radical Leftist like Rangel, Constitutional Conservatives are terrorists. Who knew that a balanced budget, being fiscally responsible and spending withing your means with no deficit spending, protecting free markets, eliminating the national debt, eliminating excessive taxes and allowing the people spend their money not the federal government, reducing the size of government, promoting  civic responsibility and actually abiding by the United States Constitution was a terrorist act?

And Rangel says you can’t talk rationally to the Tea Party, eh? Sadly, this 84 year old fossil ethically challenged and tax cheat has been a Congressman since 1971 and will be reelected again.

JP Updates:

“We know that these victims these kids are being held by people that have no moral standards… the question is how do we handle these types of people who don’t mind dying. They hate so much that they don’t mind dying themselves,” Rangel asserted. “And you have to admit this complex to have someone to think that attacking human beings and innocent by missiles, and destroying the lives of children that they are going to get some reward after they die. That’s worst than the tea Party’s thinking.”

At this point, the radio host interrupted the congressman, “You can’t compare the Tea Party to Palestinian terrorists!”

“Well, i am just saying that is a cult type of thinking-its’ a poor analogy when you talk about terrorism-but when you talk about not recognizing the United States as a nation, not recognizing the president, trying to repeal bills that are already law and sticking to the principles of the civil war, you know these are people that you cannot talk rationally to and the president can’t,” Rangel explained the comparison. “And at some point, if the Palestinians come to the table and say they can’t control the people in the backroom, the same way Republicans say they can’t control the Tea Party — the Republican Party would no longer exits because they can’t control the Tea Party — and the Palestinian Authority… if they believe in this partnership with terrorists.. then they cannot come to the table.. You cannot talk to a person who says their primary goal is to have you distinguished. There is no conversation there.”

UPDATE 17:30:

“Comparing a vicious terrorist organization responsible for the murder of innocent civilians, including children to the Tea Party is offensive to the families of Hamas’ victims and to all Americans and Israelis,” Espaillat supporter Assemblyman Jeff Dinowitz told JP. “I find the Tea Party beneath contempt and disagree with their extremist policies on every issue, but it is reckless to put them in the same category as Hamas. I am surprised that the Congressman would make such a senseless statement.”

“This comparison minimizes the magnitude of the evil acts of Hamas and should be retracted,” Dinowitz added.

United States Patent & Trademark Office Cancels the Washington Redskins Trademark Registration … Says Football Team’s Name “Disparaging to Native Americans”

JUST CURIOUS, HOW WAS THE NAME “REDSKINS” CONSIDERED OK FOR 82 YEARS?

Don’t ask for things, you might just open Pandora’s box … The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office canceled the Washington Redskins’ trademark stating that Federal trademark law does not permit registration of trademarks that “may disparage” individuals or groups. However, the action does not prevent the NFL’s Washington Redskins from using the name, with no patent protection, the team could lose revenue from preventing others to produce and sell merchandise using the same name.

But of course it is only a coincidence that this issue has grown with the presence of a community agitator as president.

Washington Redskins

 The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office canceled the Washington Redskins’ trademark registration on Wednesday, a move that won’t force the NFL team to change its name but fuels the intense fight by opponents to eliminate what they view as a racial slur against Native Americans.

The 99-page decision by the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board said the team’s name and logo are disparaging. It dilutes the Redskins’ legal protection against infringement and hinders the team’s ability to block counterfeit merchandise from entering the country.

But its effect is largely symbolic. The ruling cannot stop the team from selling T-shirts, beer glasses and license-plate holders with the moniker or keep the team from trying to defend itself against others who try to profit from the logo.

From Eugene Volokh at the WAPO: 2-to-1 decision, Blackhorse v. Pro Football, Inc. (USPTO TTAB June 18, 2014). A quick excerpt:

[T]hese registrations must be cancelled because they were disparaging to Native Americans at the respective times they were registered, in violation of Section 2(a) of the Trademark Act of 1946, 15 U.S.C. § 1052(a) [which bars, in relevant part, registrations of marks that "may disparage ... persons, living or dead, institutions, beliefs, or national symbols, or bring them into contempt, or disrepute"]. This decision concerns only the statutory right to registration under Section 2(a). We lack statutory authority to issue rulings concerning the right to use trademarks.

Hmm, so who is next, the Cleveland Indians? And those of you at Atlanta Brave games doing the “tomahawk chop” will be arrested and cited for a hate crime.

Legal Insurrection opines, if the “Redskins” trademark is cancelled by USPTO as “disparaging,” are  “Negro” and “Colored” next? So does that mean the United Negro College Fund and National Association for the Advancement of Colored People should have their trademarks revoked?

Other names up for consideration, the Washington Scandals, Washington Tyranny, Washington PC’s, or my personal favorite the Washington Waste.
