More Music

This is another from Seth’s video archives, a bit of his favorite opera in which he and I both seem to have different icons. His is Maria Ewing (I wonder why) while my favorite here is Gino Quilico, who appears below as Escamillo.

Maria Ewing is the woman in red (Carmen).

Also more than noteable here is soprano Judith Howarth, who plays Frasquita, one of the two bar girls, and whom you see singing that high note near the end of the song.

The only drawback is that it’s in French (the cloud to an otherwise purely silver lining), but the singing and indeed the harmonies are incredible.

Not a surprise, just EgoBama in his usual form

Barack Hussein, speaking at the late Senator Daniel Inouye’s funeral, as usual seems to think that like everything else, it’s all about Obama.

Some things never change, not with the Egomaniac-In-Chief.

Wayne LaPierre/ NRA Response to the School Tragedy

This half hour video is worth watching, especially if you have children and/or value the well being of America’s children, who are our country’s future.

Showing consideration for the families of the young people who were killed by Adam Lanza, the NRA waited, allowing them time to mourn their losses, something Obama, Feinstein and the rest of the anti 2nd Amendment crowd did not do, instead jumping in immediately to make a political issue out of the tragic mass murder.

But then, those people are liberals, so what can we expect, right?

The video is here.

On another, related note, speaking of the usual anti-gun suspects:

Mayor Michael Bloomberg may have risen to become the country’s chief critic of lax firearm laws, but on his weekly radio show, he argued that has nothing to do with the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Indeed, Mr. Bloomberg claimed to be the strongest defender of the Second Amendment around.

“I don’t think there’s anybody that’s defended the Second Amendment as much as I have, Ray,” Mr. Bloomberg said to a caller who asked him why he was “so against” the constitutional passage . “I think you have a perfect right to buy weapons and keep them for protection or for sport. We have tried to make sure that you have it. The Supreme Court says that there are–consistent with the Second Amendment–you can have reasonable restrictions, so, for example, you can’t buy a nuclear-tipped weapon.”

The mayor also offered some possible interpretations of the Second Amendment that differ from those espoused by gun rights advocates.

Right, yeah, sure….

Solid Reasoning

There is no way that anyone without either a blind political objective or who is an Islamic terrorism supporting propagandist (such as those comprising CAIR, the “Council for American-Islamic Relations”, terrorism’s leading PR firm in the United States) could realistically refute what Ann Coulter said in this video.

It’s a testament to how far down the tubes our country’s gone that so many of our elected politicians, purely in the interests of their own careers, readily set policies that ignore the facts, thereby endangering countless American citizens whose lives depend upon our political leaders doing what is necessary to protect Americans.
