The DA for DC decided to not press charges against David Gregory for possessing a 30-round clip in DC (which is illegal) , thus again proving that there is a Club, and you are not part of it.
The DA is also alleged to be a friend of the Gregory family, so it shows that who you know is still the rule of the land.
I’m not agitating for Dancin’ Dave to be thrown in the pokey for a decade for this (though having him off the air is tempting), but I do think this is another example that there are two sets of laws in the US. The next person arrested in DC for possession of a high-capacity clip should scream bloody hell.
If only Dancin’ David Gregory did this more often… but it leaves one with the impression that mowing down little children of white, affluent Manhattan-office workers is the bridge too far for Gregory. The families, in other words, were his people. Still, I’ll take what I can get. It’s a rare day I actually say something… nice about Gregory. Note this on your calendars.
“Bloomberg, LaPierre and the Void FOR a week after the Newtown shooting, the conversation was dominated by the self-righteous certainties of the American center-left…”
Actually, Ross, it was shock and mourning. Remember? Now is not the time to talk about gun control legislation? Anyway, the rest of the column was another love note to Both Sides Do It, on one side gun nuts and on the other gun-restriction nuts. It’s a remarkable piece of tin-eared dissembling, and false equivalencies.
So once again I leave you with the reminder that this is our constitutionally-protected free and unfettered press, fellow citizens. Cherish it.
“Let us accept Rev. Al’s point and the president’s point about fairness,” Fiorina replied. “But equally, it is not fair that public employee union pensions and benefits are so rich now that cities and states are going bankrupt and college tuition is going up 25 and 30 percent or police and firefighters are being cut. There’s a lot that isn’t fair right now.”
For the record, Fiorina is the person who started the first big wave of technology mass-firings and off-shoring to low-wage counties like India and China. During her brief tenure at HP, Fiorina fired over 18,000 employees and coined the phrase Right-sizing to dismiss it. When the Board canned her, she got a very fair $43 Million golden parachute for her troubles.
GREGORY: Do you think that there is something of a war on women among Republicans?
McCAIN: I think we have to fix that. I think that there is a perception out there because of how this whole contraception issue played out — ah, we need to get off of that issue, in my view. I think we ought to respect the right of women to make choices in their lives and make that clear, and get back onto what the American people really care about.
Of course, Dancing With The Gregory does not do the obvious follow-up question asking Walnuts why he voted for the Blunt Amendment that would have allowed employers to veto women’s access to contraception through their health plans.
That’s our fee, er, Free and unfettered Media. Treasure it, people.
