Government Shutdown? This is democracy in action. [NPR's Tell Me More interview]

Every Republican in the House of Representatives right now ran on either delaying, opposing or defunding Obamacare. And this is the point where Republicans need to show whether or not they’re going to follow through on their commitments. This is democracy in action, and if you don’t like where we are now with the government slowdown, most Americans didn’t like where we were when Obamacare was passed in the first place.”

Chilling dissent over Guantanamo Policy

The U.S. prison for enemy combatants at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, should not succumb once again to policies that thwart our defense of U.S. citizens and national security interests.

While Gitmo houses 164 inmates who are eager to harm Americans, a group of left-leaning lawyers (colloquially dubbed the “terrorist bar”) is working earnestly on behalf of the Gitmo detainees. These groups include representatives of the American Bar Association, the American Civil Liberties Union, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and Human Rights First.

Under a recent policy change, the Department of Defense allows observers from these organizations to monitor ongoing proceedings at Gitmo. The department’s policy confers privileged status on these five organizations, which have automatic access rights to monitor Gitmo hearings.”

Gun control regulations disarm women

“Guns make women safer. In a violent confrontation, guns reverse the balance of power. Armed with a gun, a woman may even have the advantage over a violent attacker. More than 90 percent of violent crimes occur without a firearm, according to federal statistics. When a violent criminal threatens or attacks a woman, he rarely uses a gun. Attackers use their size and physical strength, preying on women who are at a severe disadvantage.”
