In any event, such a net would've caught the Columbine, Aurora, WVa Tech, Sandy Hook, and Navy Yard shooters, just off the top of my head.

Cecil,

I don't think it would have caught the Sandy Hook shooter because he stole his mother's guns. I assume the Columbine shooters didn't purchase weapons because they were underage, but I don't know.

I guess my point is that there are ways of obtaining weapons without going through any background check at all. How many handguns in Chicago are acquired legally? Of course the gun grabbers think availability is the real problem and that's why all guns everywhere must be eliminated.

Extraneus

New York Times gets it wrong, media obsessed with linking AR-15 with Navy Yard shooter

The liberal media is so obsessed with linking the Navy Yard shooter with the AR-15 rifle that it is making up false tales of Aaron Alexis trying to obtain one.

The New York Times attempts to give the impression that a so-called assault-weapon law stopped Alexis from buying a rifle in Virginia, but that is not true.

They made it up. He didn't try to buy an AR-15.

henry

Ext, that article was a failed attempt to give Bloomberg credit for pressuring Virginia into changing gun sales laws. Remember his blaming VA for guns in NYC? We need to nail Bloomie and the NYT for this blatant ass-hattery.

I don't think it would have caught the Sandy Hook shooter because he stole his mother's guns. I assume the Columbine shooters didn't purchase weapons because they were underage, but I don't know.

My response was to a claim that such folks wouldn't be in the database, based on a [Canadian] study that 2/3 of such are misdiagnosed. In any event, I believe a reasonable bill could be written to identify those under mental treatment trying to purchase firearms; and it could easily be paired with guidelines for doctors to counsel family members to secure (or, better, get rid of) household guns. My instinct is that they want to do the latter anyway . . . it's getting 'em to report individual treatment that'd be hard.

Still, IMNSHO, a better approach than another "assault weapons ban" or "closing the gun show loophole" that the moonbats are proffering (again).

It would be easier to list those in Hollywood I do find funny. Certainly not Ferrell, Jim Carrey, Robin Williams. Others like Sandler and De Niro are hit or miss. I can't even think of the last really good comedy I've seen.

James D.

Speaking of security clearances and background checks, can someone who's knowledgable on the subject explain this to me?

A former classmate and friend of my wife's was hired for a job at (Important Fed Gov agency). Said job requires a background check and (some level of security clearance).

Naturally, the friend lists my wife on her paperwork. The friend begins working at her job, and two months after she starts, my wife gets a call from (whoever's doing the background check).

So my question is: what the heck is the point? If the friend were a security risk (she's not; they don't come more honest, or harmless, than her), she had two months to get up to (whatever sort of mischief somebody in her position could potentially get up to).

If you're serious about security, it seems to me that you wouldn't let people be on the job for two months and have access to government computers and information systems and so forth, without first completing your investigation and being assured that they're A-OK. Right?

narciso @ 6:54 AM - that's appalling. But it isn't just the Second Amendment that's rewritten.

First of all, dumbing down the Bill of Rights for AP History students is kind of horrifying just on the face of it.

Second of all, look at the rewritten 4th amendment:

"The government may not carry out unreasonable searches or seizures..."

Students are being taught in that textbook that the protection against unreasonable search is a privilege the government is kindly extending to citizens; one which, presumably, can be withdrawn.

Which, obviously, is NOT the intent of the Amendment (or of the Constitution generally, as originally written). But clearly that's not what our government wants people to know and believe these days.

"The Fed's $2.8 trillion "quantitative easing" program has, among other things, lifted stock prices to record highs, driven interest rates to record lows and put a floor under what had been a reeling housing market.

Yet barely a quarter of Americans even know what it is.

A poll leading up to the Fed's pivotal decision, expected Wednesday afternoon, found just 27 percent of U.S. adults could correctly pick the correct definition of quantitative easing from among five possible answers.

Quantitative easing, or QE for short, is when the Fed buys bonds in order to push down interest rates and boost the economy."

Good Morning and way behind, but this is refreshing--somebody in DC actually admitted they lied:

Elizabeth O'Bagy has said that not only did she not earn a doctorate from Georgetown University, but she never even attended the PhD program there.

'I would like to deeply apologize to every person with whom I have worked, who has read and depended upon my research, and to the general public.

'While I have made many mistakes and showed extremely poor judgment, I most particularly regret my public misrepresentation of my educational status and not immediately disclosing that I had not been awarded a doctorate in May, 2013.'

Unfortunately O'Bagy is still lying:

I never intended to willfully deceive anyone.

Debts would be abolished first; taxes laid heavy on the rich, and not at all on the others; and at last a downright equal division of every thing be demanded, and voted. What would be the consequence of this? The idle, the vicious, the intemperate, would ... sell and spend all their share, and then demand a new division of those who purchased from them. ... anarchy and tyranny commence."

Cecil Turner

Speaking of security clearances and background checks, can someone who's knowledgable on the subject explain this to me?

With the caveat that I'm a former operator, not a security type, and a bit out of date . . . I'll give it a shot.

When applying for a job that requires a security clearance, the applicant is typically given a background questionnaire that he/she fills out (with emphasis on residences/criminal history/drug use, etc). The agency reviews the application and starts a National Agency Check (NAC). If there's no disqualifying information on the application, one can be given an interim clearance up to Secret. Once the NAC comes back (basically checks all the databases and pertinent records for criminal history), and possibly credit checks, it can be upgraded to a Final Secret clearance. One can lose the clearance for bad behavior once it's granted (which in my experience is more common than denial).

Note: almost any operational job requires a Secret clearance. The basic ops military internet runs on a Secret backbone (SIPRNET), and classified material for tech manuals are typically written in a Secret supplement. The cutoff for more stringent security is between Secret/Top Secret. Secret is the most basic clearance, and probably not taken as seriously as it should be.

An application for a Top Secret clearance requires a much more intrusive background investigation (BI) (usually a "single scope" BI or SSBI); where the investigating agency actually sends agents to interview people you know or knew. An interim TS can be given after applying for the SSBI and passing all the Secret checks.

Bottom line: 1) an interim clearance really requires only an application; 2) a Secret clearance is effectively the lowest and least restrictive; and 3) the background parts aren't as critical as ongoing credit or criminal problems.

@James D. | September 18, 2013 at 09:45 AM:

The massive amount of overclassification would appear to reduce the risk of damage the person with an interim clearance can do. Would also assume a conscientious boss (yeah, I know) would account for this in their initial job assignments.

Would be interested in Cecil Turner's experience in this area.

Cecil Turner

The massive amount of overclassification would appear to reduce the risk of damage the person with an interim clearance can do. Would also assume a conscientious boss (yeah, I know) would account for this in their initial job assignments.

Dunno. I'd guess probably so. It's worth pointing out that a clearance is only the first half of the process. The second is access, which is supposedly only on a need-to-know basis. The interim clearance is also constrained from any access to caveatted material (e.g., Secret Comsec), which limits it to more generic information. Managing that access is a pain, which more or less forces the boss to be conscientious.

I'm unaware of any flagrant interim clearance abuse cases. The bigger issue seems to me to be the ability of someone with general access to siphon off vast amounts of information due to "advances" in information technology. As my old boss said: we used to worry about someone getting disgruntled and emptying his safe . . . now he can empty everybody's safe. Certainly the ability to "compartmentalize" information and limit on a need to know basis is getting more challenging. I'm glad to be out of the game.

Has anyone else received their BOzocare quote yet? I ask because mine arrived yesterday. I currently pay $8292 for a $10K deductible (2 people). I cannot keep my current plan because I changed plans two years ago. (The President's lie regarding "you can keep your current plan" pertains to the plan you had when he lied, if you varied thereafter, tough.)

My beneficent provider informs me my current choices are a Bronze Plan with a $6500 deductible for the paltry sum of $13,992 or nothing. I know I'll be able to "shop" at Govins after October 1st but I'm curious as to whether others are already basking in the warm glow of being able to pay only a 70% increase for something they don't want.

OCALA, Fla., September 17, 2013 — George Zimmerman’s highly controversial prosecutor, Angela Corey, is now under state investigation for firing Ben Kruidbos, the Jacksonville Times-Union reports.

“Kruidbos received a letter from the Florida Commission on Ethics earlier this week saying the investigation was occurring,” the T-U’s Larry Hannan wrote last week. “Investigator Specialist Kathleen Mann, who sent the letter, declined to comment on the investigation when contacted by the Times-Union on Friday.”

Kruidbos was the information technology director in Corey’s office until earlier this summer.

“Mr. Kruidbos was the victim of retaliatory action by the SAO … when he was terminated from employment,” his attorney, Wesley White, claimed in a formal complaint with the Florida Human Relations Commission.

From Geraghty's Morning Jolt quoting the NY Times:

"Gun-free zones" are just "free fire zones" for criminals and terrorists. Like shooting fish in a barrell.

I have a vague memory from Bernal Diaz's eyewitness account of the conquest of the Aztec's by the Spanish under Cortez, that relates to the fish in a barrel point.

A sacred dance was to go down at some Aztec religious festival in about 1519-1520, and many hundreds of the Aztec nobility and the leaders of the Warrior class were to be the dancers. Cortez was aware of this and expressed his fear of so many men dancing armed in such close proximity to his forces, so he arranged via Montezuma to have the men dance disarmed. They arrived in the fairly enclosed space disarmed, then in the middle of their dancing they were set upon by the heavily armed Spaniards and completely slaughtered. This was a horrendous blow to Aztec military leadership and resulted in an Aztec rebellion and I believe the capture of Montezuma.

I can't seem to find a decent account of it the way I recall it, and I don't have time to check it out, but my recollection is a bit at odds with what I can bring up on Wiki.

Anyhow, overall point is, that the removal of their weapons made the cream of the Aztec warrior crop completely vulnerable to their enemies, and the Spaniards took bloody advantage of that foolish decision to disarm, culminating ultimately in the loss of their freedom, their lives and their empire.

Walgreen Joins in Exodus of Workers to Private Exchanges

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-09-18/walgreen-joins-in-exodus-of-workers-to-private-exchanges.html

The key bit is this:

While Walgreen said it will provide funding in 2014 equal to what workers get now, the move curtails uncertainty on future outlays, and there’s no guarantee its contribution will rise if premiums do.

So, as ObamaCare drives premiums up, workers will be paying more out of their own pocket.

ObummerCare-- the hits keep on coming. It really is a worse debacle than we rightwingers projected. As you may recall-- I supported Cantor's delay plan as opposed to a defund vote. Well the defund will get a vote, and pass the House ( a few dems may vote for it), and to show voters that defund is not just a nasty political move, the House Repubs will pass a replacement for ObummerCare. Good Plan, the House Repubs doing this with the horrific ObummerCare rate increases and workers being thrown into exchanges is a great way to start the Debt debate.

The College Board that owns AP was heavily behind promoting the John Dewey vision of transforming America ed during the 90s attempt. They have now hired the architect of the Common Core to be their transformative Pres.

The redo of American history predates Coleman but all the social studies frameworks now push the idea that political documents are not sacred and are subject to reinterpretation to fit each generation's needs. So they are teaching the kids based on how they wish the Constitution read.

I'm particularly interested in hearing what's happening to small group policy premiums. I suspect BOzocare is wreaking more havoc there than even in the individual sector.

Is it possible BOzo and the Dems didn't foresee employers would cut hours and reduce staff?

Yes. None of them have run a business, and they think they understand economics better than any person running a business. They imagine the world as static and totally subject to their dictates.

Trumka outright admitted that they screwed up with the 30 hour "full time" idea and "never imagined" that companies would cut hours. Now they want to undo it, but the administration is terrified that once they admit there are 'mistakes' in the law, and open it up to revision, they will lose control. That is why Obama threatened to veto the bill the Republicans passed to provide legal authority to the President to delay the employer mandate. Once the legislative gates on changes to ObamaCare are open, there will be no closing them.

So, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in NYC is having its annual Photography exhibition (2013 edition) and one of the featured photos is.......The Situation Room.......but without Little Princess Eugenie's funny hats.

The rest of Broomberg's portfolio is typical leftwing interpretation of what war is all about.

Dems didn't know?- short answer-- they didn't care. For them it was a power grab-- more control over 17% of GDP and getting more reliable voters by getting them into MediCaid. When ObummerCare collapses, they push for Singlepayer in light of the 'Emergency'... they'll argue we gave the Banks TARP didn't we?

PS: Obummer has become more than pathetic, going to cronies at the Business Roundable and complaining the anti-Debt repubs are bad for the crony business. Disgusting.

At least two parks in San Juan Capistrano have prohibited people from wearing flip-flops.

Did Mike Bloomberg secretly become mayor? Or perhaps this is out of respect for John Kerry.

Is it possible BOzo and the Dems didn't foresee employers would cut hours and reduce staff?

You can’t read the law without coming to three possible conclusions:

1. Its intent is to completely destroy the health care and insurance markets to create a “crisis” that only a government single payer solution can solve.

2. It was written by the most economically illiterate morons ever to walk the halls of DC.

3. Both of the above.
