NRA fires back at Michael Bloomberg’s misleading gun control ad with powerful ad of its own
The National Rifle Association on Sunday issued a fierce response to Michael Bloomberg’s misleading gun control ad that aired during the Super Bowl.
The misleading ad claimed that 2,900 children die from gun violence every year. However, as Washington Free Beacon reporter Stephen Gutowski noted, almost half of those “children” are actually adults ages 18 and 19. In fact, the ad merely cites misleading data from Bloomberg’s gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety. read more

It’s that time again; time for Democrats and Republicans to once more lie about how much we need a new immigration bill.
Already, there is nothing new. It is the same old tired argument that poor immigrants are hiding in the shadows and just want to come into the light, be legalized and become productive Americans, just like you and me.
And naturally we know these are lies generated by the Democrats to form an insurmountable voting block – keeping them in power in perpetuity. And the establishment Republicans, controlled by their puppet masters at the Chamber of Commerce, who want a permanent underclass of labor.
Despite all evidence to the contrary, it seems the Republican leadership is still convinced they can curry favor with Hispanics by allowing millions of criminal aliens to become legal.
They have also convinced themselves that lying about their true intentions is both acceptable and will work…this time.
The Republicans have a problem though. Their constituents aren’t morons. They/we are not the ill-informed rubes the press makes us out to be. read more
Bloomberg’s ban prohibits 2-liter soda with your pizza and some nightclub mixers
Take a big gulp, New York: Hizzoner is about to give you a pop.
Nanny Bloomberg unleashes his ban on large sodas on March 12 — and there are some nasty surprises lurking for hardworking families.
Say goodbye to that 2-liter bottle of Coke with your pizza delivery, pitchers of soft drinks at your kid’s birthday party and some bottle-service mixers at your favorite nightclub.
They’d violate Mayor Bloomberg’s new rules, which prohibit eateries from serving or selling sugary drinks in containers larger than 16 ounces.
Bloomberg’s soda smackdown follows his attacks on salt, sugar, trans fat, smoking and even baby formula.
LESS SODA, MORE DOUGH: If you order a pizza, you cannot get a large bottle of soda delivered with it. Already, Domino’s locations across the city are doing away with 1 and 2 liter bottles of soda, deliveryman Philippe Daniba says. They’ll sell smaller bottles instead — costing you more money and increasing plastic waste.
NANNY MIKE’S CAN’T-DO ATTITUDE
The city Health Department last week began sending brochures to businesses that would be affected by the latest ban, including restaurants, bars and any “food service” establishment subject to letter grades.
And merchants were shocked to see the broad sweep of the new rules.
“It’s not fair. If you’re gonna tell me what to do, it’s no good,” said Steve DiMaggio of Caruso’s in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. “It’s gonna cost a lot more.”
And consumers, especially families, will soon see how the rules will affect their wallets — forcing them to pay higher unit prices for smaller bottles. Continue Reading
