Why on earth is this woman now a potential felon? Gun issues are not our main concern here (though they are very important) but this situation deserves some attention.
I had no idea that Houston, America’s 6th largest city, has no zoning laws.

The American Medical Association claims to represent doctors. But it is very much part of the crony coalition which put together the broad outlines of Obamacare in meetings inside the White House.

In fairness, who doesn’t build wind turbines to lower their corporate tax rate? Am I right?
Gee I wonder why.
