Here are some other highlights and headlines that I noticed over at Ransom Notes Radio:

Today is the 25th anniversary of the pro-democracy protest in Tiananmen Square. Authorities have, apparently, shut down most of Google’s servers in China and ordered a news-blackout. It’s nice to see that some things never change with commies. (Daily Caller)

Obama’s approval numbers have dropped into the 30’s in recent polls. However, among deserters of the US Armed forces and former Gitmo detainees, his numbers remain fairly strong. (The Fox Nation)

Many people have compared Obama to Carter. Victor Davis Hanson went one step further, by suggesting that “Our Future is 1979”… This is bad news. I hate bell bottoms. (NRO)

Chuck Schumer (Idiot-NY) said, “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights… he would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” Ok, two things: A) TJ didn’t write the Bill of Rights. And B) the guy risked his life to help write a nasty letter to King George that basically said “You’re not the boss of me!” I think he’s probably a pretty big fan of free speech. (Washington Times)

Bloomberg’s anti-gun group “Moms Demand Action” has asked Target stores to prohibit customers from carrying guns - which might turn out to be a good idea. After criminals begin robbing the store (just like they did with Jack in the Box, Sonic, etc.) the name “Target” will begin to have meaning. (Breitbart)

Remember how Obama said we had Al Qaeda on the run? Yeah, they’re running alright. They’re running guns, they’re running drugs, they’re running insurgencies, and they’re running one heck of a recruitment campaign… (WSJ)
