What a classy Christmas

It's curious how a good number of 2nd Amendment advocates now don't seem to have any problem with being prepared to stomp on the 1st Amendment by furiously petitioning for the deportation of a British CNN anchor. His major transgression? Having stated his opinion about gun control - an opinion that some people hated in their guns guts.

I guess the best way to summarize this is: STAY CLASSY, AMERICA.

Get him out! Petition to deport Piers Morgan from US over gun control remarks attracts 59,000 signatures

"The CNN host provoked the fury of gun rights activists when he interviewed Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt"

He called Mr Pratt "stupid, dangerous, idiot". Apparently, this warrants him being deported like a common criminal. You know, offending someone is now on par with drug trafficking.

Horizontal Hydraulic Fracturing in NY

This has been the end of two years of a whole bunch of other human beings and I ( not "activists, not "liberals-because anti-fracking goes across party lines) have been fighting the gas/oil companies and the state to ban it. There is so much science out there and so much of the process of fracking that is questionable as to it's safety , that right now, the process by which it is done, is dangerous to our health, our water and our air, not to mention people's lively hoods and property. It is my hope for 2013 that our governor in NY do the right thing and call for a ban on all Horizontal Hydraulic Fracturing.
