Anybody who misses more than one question on this thirteen point quiz on political orientation (allowing for clumsiness or misread) shouldn’t be allowed to vote. Yeah, I’m serious.

What you are looking at here, courtesy of Free North Carolina, is a statue of George Washington, hidden from the view of the oh-so-easily-offended audience at a MLK day rally held on the north side steps of the NC Statehouse in Columbia. That’s right, not some lefty California community college campus, but on the grounds of the State government of one of the original thirteen colonies.

How King would have burned to see this done in his name.
The Houston Chronicle puts up W. Scott. Lewis’ unabashedly pro-gun opinion piece advocating changing Texas state law to allow concealed carry licensees to carry on college campuses. As the law now stands, you cannot even have an unloaded firearm locked in your trunk while parked on campus.
