Breakfast Scramble (Sunday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble Blowing in the Wind, Charles M. Blow whines for yet more gun control, from New York Times [1]:

According to 2005 data from the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime, a comparison of member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development for which data were available showed that the U.S. is in a league of its own, and not in a good way. We have nearly 9 guns for every 10 people, and about 9 out of every 10 of our homicides are committed with one of those guns. No other country even comes close.

What three hundred million guns, and circa ten thousand murder [2]s.  Color me unimpressed.    Guns are  safe.  Disarmed populations [3]are not. 

Dope from Hope, ok Mike Huckabee is a nice guy.   Hucks problem is that he too stupid to know he is a liberal, from Brian  Stewart, National Review [4]:

This afternoon at The King’s College in New York City, former governor Huckabee addressed a full hall in a wide-ranging discussion of public policy.  ;…] Huckabee flatly denied being a “pro-life liberal,” an accusation often made in certain quarters on the right. Not a trace of defensiveness could be detected on this point. To the contrary, the governor gave an all-out defense of his tax hikes while governor of Arkansas on the grounds that they were the only responsible course of action to repair state roads. He snorted with derision at “libertarians” who fail to recognize that “we don’t have a health care crisis in this country, but a health crisis.”

A polite liberal is still a liberal.
