Crime rate plummeted after law required firearms for residents
From WND.com, 04/19/2007 – As the nation debates whether more guns or fewer can prevent tragedies like the Virginia Tech Massacre, a notable anniversary passed last month in a Georgia town that witnessed a dramatic plunge in crime and violence after mandating residents to own firearms.In March 1982, 25 years ago, the small town of Kennesaw – responding to a handgun ban in Morton Grove, Ill. – unanimously passed an ordinance requiring each head of household to own and maintain a gun. Since then, despite dire predictions of “Wild West” showdowns and increased violence and accidents, not a single resident has been involved in a fatal shooting – as a victim, attacker or defender.

Reproductive justice ensures that women are healthy, both physically and emotionally; that they can make decisions about their bodies and sexuality free from government interference; and that they have the economic resources to plan their own families. A woman’s well-being requires self-determination, equality, and the respect and support of her society.
Hagel has refused to release documents on sources of foreign funding because he is purportedly receiving donations from “Friends of Hamas.”
From Israel National News, By Rachel Hirshfeld, 2/10/2013 - Republican opponents of former Senator Chuck Hagel welcomed the decision by the Senate Armed Services Committee last Thursday to postpone the expected panel vote on President Barack Obama’s highly controversial defense secretary nomination after he refused to release additional requested financial information, including details regarding compensation for speeches he delivered since leaving Capitol Hill.
While Hagel has provided some information on his personal finances, he said he could not provide all of what has been requested because it was the property of private organizations that he was not authorized to disclose.
It has more to do with what I want than what I need!
I will tell you why I have so many firearms….after you define “shall not be infringed”.

WASHINGTON – The benefits of intact biological families were emphasized on a “Building a Marriage Culture“ panel at the National Review Institute’s 2013 Summit, “The Future of Conservatism.” One of the panelists, Doug Mainwaring, spoke of his personal experience as a gay man who came to realize that his own children need both a mother and a father.
“For a long time I thought, if I could just find the right partner, we could raise my kids together, but it became increasingly apparent to me, even if I found somebody else exactly like me, who loved my kids as much as I do, there would still be a gaping hole in their lives because they need a mom,” Mainwaring, co-founder of National Capital Tea Party Patriots, said.
From WND.com, by Reza Kahlili, 10/31/13 – Two days after WND’s exclusive report on the devastating explosions at Iran’s Fordow nuclear site, Tehran informed the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog it was going to install thousands of modern centrifuges at another of its nuclear facilities in an apparent move to restore its bargaining position.
In a Jan. 23 letter to the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency, the IAEA, Iran said it plans to install thousands of its upgraded centrifuges at the Natanz facility.

IN THE SCHOOL
In the fall of 2012, Tutka quoted the Bible while speaking to a student coming last into the classroom, saying, “The first shall be last but the last shall be first.”
The student questioned Tutka several times about the origin of the quote, and eventually, Tutka used his own Bible to show the student where the quote originated. In one conversation, the student mentioned that he did not own a Bible, so Tutka asked if he would like his, and the student said “yes.”
The Phillipsburg School Board voted to terminate Tutka’s employment for allegedly violating the school’s policy banning the distribution of religious literature on school grounds, and another policy that requires teachers to remain neutral when discussing religious topics.
