A close look at the NRA reveals that they really operate much like our own government. Let me ...
|Don't Ban Assault Weapons
The odds of getting an assault weapons ban through this congress are slimmer than a super model. Not only would the battle suck all of the energy out of the political will to do "something" after ...

Maybe it stems from his work as a community organizer.Maybe it stems from not wanting to appear the "angry black man." But Obama is simply not a confrontational man. All one needs to look at is his ...
