Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) is the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and she has drawn a line in the sand for the United States. She has introduced a bill which would dramatically cut U.S. contributions to the United Nations if that body votes for Palestinian statehood next month. ”Chairman Ros-Lehtinen felt it was important to introduce the bill, which includes a title withholding U.S. funding to UN entities which upgrade the status of the Palestinian mission, in advance of the Palestinian Authority’s statehood push at the UN,” her spokesman told Foreign Policy. Democrats in the House, reports Foreign Policy, are opposed to the bill.

Sorry, but the UN is an impotent disaster.


Look who’s on their “Human Rights” Commission.

We need to sent this to “vault of bad ideas”.

GUNS: Gun owner makes a bad mistake

Arlington man who fatally shot burglar gets 12 years for murder

EVERETT — In the end, a judge decided that the case wasn’t about a murder.

What Keira Earhart did was more akin to manslaughter, Snohomish County Superior Court Judge Larry McKeeman concluded on Wednesday. He sentenced the Arlington man to a dozen years in prison — three years below the standard range.

Earhart shot Ryan Rzechula in the back on Nov. 16, 2009. Earhart, 39, encountered Rzechula about three hours after a break-in at his Arlington house, a quarter-mile away. Earhart had gone looking for the burglar and his wife’s missing jewelry. He suspected that Rzechula, 25, was responsible for the break-in and called 911.

“Shoot, shovel, and shut up” only applies if you can get to shovel without interruption. Humans generally attract more attention. Especially if you call 911.

If you call the donut eaters, you have to be happy with their “service”.

Plus pursuit is dumb since the perp may have acquired a bigger better gun.

That “three hours” is going to weigh against him.

Too bad since now we’ll have to listen to all the anit-gun propaganda.
