I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material there. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. (Please let me know if you do not get such an invitation.) I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:
To post questions or comments about the readings before we discuss them in class;
To follow up on class discussions with additional comments or questions.
To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

Would Obama go after gun rights if he is reelected?

“In a second term, he would be unrestrained by the demands of re-election.” – Mitt Romney

“If we are going to safeguard our 2nd Amendment, it is time to elect a president who will defend the rights President Obama ignores or minimizes. I will.” – Mitt Romney

BUT….. “During his 1994 Senate race, Romney said: ‘I don't line up with the NRA.’” [i]

-That was 18 years ago

-Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said the president's record "makes clear that he supports and respects the Second Amendment, and we'll fight back against any attempts to mislead voters."[i]
