    Watching 3 Gun Nation competition. I’ve gotta get into that once I get past the retinal issues and recover. Looks like fun stuff.

    PRESS RELEASE: True Purpose of Postponing the Employer Mandate

    New York, NY (July 3, 2013)–The Obama administration suspended the employer mandate to divert the disaster of severe under enrollment in the exchanges this October. “The most likely purpose of suspending the employer mandate is not to provide flexibility to employers but rather to compel a reluctant population to enroll in the health exchanges,” explains Betsy McCaughey, former Lt. Governor of New York and author of Beating Obamacare.

    Delaying the employer mandate on the industries that currently don’t offer compliant insurance — such a retail and hospitality industries –will mean that healthy employed people who otherwise would get coverage at work under the employer mandate will have to enroll on the exchanges instead or pay the penalty.

    In short, the result of suspending the employer mandate BUT NOT THE INDIVIDUAL MANDATE, is to fill up the exchanges. Without this change, the administration likely saw it was heading toward a disaster, with a small number of sick people enrolling in the exchanges, forcing premiums even higher than the double digit increases already announced.

    Early heads up for anyone in the area:

    On Sep 21, the Kansas Black Republican Council will hold their 4th annual Freedom Shoot in Topeka. First round is $50, and includes lunch & a t-shirt.

    KBRC can be contacted at PO BOX 4585, Wichita KS 67204.

    I’m going to TRY to make it up this year.

    This is a good post on the Zimmerman trila by Jennifer Rubin:

    Second degree murder requires proof beyond a reasonable doubt that the killer had “depraved indifference to human life.” Former prosecutor Andy McCarthy explains: “In a depraved mind case, motive is superfluous because what establishes the mens rea is the objective barbarity of the act itself, not some fuzzy ‘generalized hatred’ that may have been crawling around the killer’s brain. It is virtually inconceivable that a situation involving self-defense on the killer’s part will fit a ‘depraved mind’ charge.”

    It isn’t good enough to say Zimmerman was foolish to follow Martin. It’s certainly not good enough to intuit that society has a biased perception of single black men. It’s not good enough to say Zimmerman wanted to be a hero. One has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman was not simply a fool, a grandstander or even a racist (which the prosecution has utterly failed to do, and indeed has left a gaping hole where evidence of racism was supposed to be in the journalistic narrative) but had such a general indifference to life as to exhibit an attitude, as a federal case cited by Andy puts it, akin to ”opening the door of the lions’ cage in the zoo.”

    Read the whole thing. I don’t think they have presented a single witness that shows the potential for a “depraved indifference to human life”. Getting out of your car and following a burglary suspect (yes, Martin was a suspect) is nowhere in the same zip code as opening the door to the lion’s cage at the zoo. The prosecution has to prove depraved indifference beyond reasonable doubt to win. I don’t think they have raised a credible suspicion of it. But juries can do anything. The judge should have directed acquittal on grounds that the State hadn’t proven their case. I didn’t eexpect it, though, because of all the racial tension surrounding it. Judges have to face re-election in most states. This judge would rather put an innocent man in prison for the rest of his life than make the right call in the face of hostile voters.
