Open Season on Schools (as usual) Shirley Katz Loses Bid to Carry Gun

More later…but here’s the short/sweet:

Shirley Katz…LOSES…before a Medford Judge in the case of whether she can carry a gun to school.
While schools cannot forbid you from carrying your gun to school if you’re a concealed carry permit holder…if you WORK FOR THE SCHOOL …they can. Now…does that make any sense?
We acknowledge the law says you can bring it….but because the school is your employer you can’t bring your gun.

The case boiled down to a “what the meaning of “is” is” moment…in that…the judge said the law states no ordinance can forbid you from bringing your gun into a school.
But the judge reasoned…school boards don’t make “ordinances” they make policies…and so…the law does not apply to Shirley Katz…and therefore she cannot bring her gun.

See…that’s a distinction with barely a difference.

The net effect is the same whether it’s a policy…a rule…a diktat…a suggestion.
The net effect is still the same.

Get the ruling here.

"Tolerance" Crowd Intolerant at PSU. Will PSU Leadership Condemn This?

The children going to Portland State University apparently believe that tolerance and free speech end when someone dares speak about something with which they disagree. As usual, they have vandalized a legitimate bulletin board put up by the PSU COLLEGE REPUBLICANS.
The President of the College Republicans tells me:

On Wednesday November 7th 2007, we as college republicans set up a display case in the main hallway of Smith Memorial Hall (our Student Center). The display included several different pieces of CR literature including announcements of our meeting times and contact information. The display also included 4 posters provided to us by the Young Americans foundation with a variety of content ranging from “The true victims of Che Guevara” to a poster dealing with the death tolls from historical communist regimes. Throughout the week many students have shown interest in the display and some have contacted the group inquiring more. On Friday morning November 9th at about 10am the display was found vandalized. Someone had taken a blue permanent marker and written “F*** THIS” [spelled out–blogger edits for potty talk] across one panel of the glass as well as stuck chewing gum to the outside of the glass. In addition there was a sheet of paper entitled “Bull**** Alert” [spelled out–blogger edits for potty talk] placed into the case in a manner that it blocked the contact information for the group. As a student group we have been in contact with our adviser and other PSU Faculty to get an official letter condemning this sort of unacceptable behavior. However as PSU CR’s we are motivated by this action and will continue our fight in defense of conservative principles and values in higher education. We encourage all of you to share this information and let others know what is happening on the Portland State Campus in response to true conservative activism.

DEMOCRATIC OPERATIVE ARRAIGNED ON KIDDIE PORN CHARGES

Can’t let the week go by without finally mentioning this. I haven’t mentioned it on the air, maybe I will tonight (stream here 5-8pm pacific) but we wonder when the Democrats will require this man to be excommunicated from the church of the democrat, that he be publicly flogged (which,under the circumstances, he should), and when the Democrats, including Ted “Friend of Neil” Kulongoski will speak loudly about the culture of corruption in the democratic party and how they need to end it.
No doubt this will be blamed on Bush.

Scott W. Ballo, a long-time spokesman for various Democratic political campaigns and a former communications director for the Oregon Economic and Community Development Department, was arraigned today in Marion County Circuit Court on two charges of encouraging child sex abuse (both misdemeanors) and one charge of official misconduct (also a misdemeanor), according to the court clerk’s office.

The charges relate to pornography allegedly found on Ballo’s work computer when he was employed by the economic and community development department, according to a person familiar with the case.

Ballo, 36… worked as communications director for America Coming Together’s Portland operation in 2004.

Gee, since ACT was a Soros and Hillary front, can we blame her. Let the games begin!
