A proposal to cut into King Barry's re-coronation campaign

A proposed bill would end funding for the signs that say "Project Funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act" or "Putting America to Work." You know, the signs with the Big O on them that remind us that all good things in life come from Barack Obama. If you need a reminder, photo at this link.

Gas was $1.81 when Barack Obama took office

Really, what else needs to be said? I guess with his economic policies, the good news is that fewer and fewer people are affected by the high gas prices. The cost to drive to work doesn't matter as much when you are unemployed.

Moron Alert

New York Republican Rep. Peter King is apparently a complete moron. He plans on introducing legislation to ban the carrying of a firearm within 1,000 feet of a "high-profile government official." This is nothing more than a way to put the screws to some innocent individual who is otherwise legally carrying a firearm, as it will do absolutely nothing to prevent tragedies like the one in Arizona.

Mr. King, could you please tell us why someone who is willing to violate the laws against murdering someone would be deterred by your proposed legislation? Do you really think the criminal mind will say "hmmm, I was going to murder that crooked politician, but since I cannot carry my gun within a 1,000 feet of him, I won't do that"?

Mr. King, I do not care what party you are in. Your constituents should send you packing at the first opportunity as you clearly lack the ability to think logically or rationally. If you so fear "We the People" (i.e., the "little people"), you should go into hiding somewhere and avoid being an elected official. We would all be better off for it.

UPDATE: Instapundit points to a couple of different commentators: Benjamin Domenech expounds on King's "silly idea" and Ann Althouse further points out the idiocy of this gun-free bubble proposal. I especially like the first comment at Althouse's site: "What a wuss." Yep, that about sums it up.

Speed Cameras Take Everyone's Photo

These speed cameras were taking photos of every car that passed by. Unless you can confront the person who maintains the camera that took your photo, how can a court be assured that you were actually speeding? Insist on the right to confront your accuser. Insist on having whoever maintains the camera present and available to testify. The government needs to be able to prove that the camera is operational and not just snapping photos.
