The brain is made up of three main structures: the cerebrum or cerebral hemispheres, propecia side effects the brain stem, and the cerebellum. The cerebrum is the largest and most recognizable of the three structures and is the one most often involved in epilepsy. The cerebral cortex is the highly folded, neuron-rich outer layer of the cerebrum that is referred to as gray matter. Underlying the cerebral cortex is a layer composed of white matter, which is rich in nerve fibers that are important in transmitting signals from neurons in the cortex to cells in other parts of the body. The cerebrum is divided into right and left halves, or hemispheres, which are connected near the center of the brain by a bundle of fibers called the corpus callosum. The 2009 national data set includes more than 100 Ryan White-funded Part C and Part D grantees (excluding those from New York State) submitting 2009 quality of care data to HIVQUAL-US, representing more than 5,000 chart reviews. Through regional workshops and on-site consultation, providers and staff are offered education and training in organizational development to support quality improvement activities. This approach is designed to assist HIV programs to assess their HIV service delivery system, strengthen their HIV quality program, identify areas for improvement, develop and conduct quality improvement programs, and monitor and sustain beneficial changes over time. HIV providers, and consultations to support on-site quality improvement efforts. The ultimate objective for each HIV program in New York State remains the development of a sustainable independent quality management program that reflects the capacity to dynamically analyze and continuously improve HIV treatment, care, and supportive services.

Platelets are a specialized type of blood cell that is involved in the injury healing process. Human platelets are naturally extremely rich in connective tissue growth factors.

The NR-F Minus

December 23rd, 2012 at 1:10 pm by Brian

Full disclosure:  I am not now or have I ever been a member of the NRA.  Nor do I ever have any plans to be.  It’s not that I disagree with their mission as much as the way that they go about doing it.  Donating money to allegedly pro-gun Democrats who pimp their endorsement to win conservative districts and then shoot them in the back with the gun that they gave them.  It’s like Michael Steele left the RNC and now presides over the NRA.  Just who’s side are you on?

It is time for Wayne LaPierre to retire to some great tree stand far removed from a television camera, microphone or interviewer.  He is no more than a doddering relic locked in 30 year old arguments.  Wholly unprepared and singularly unlikeable, if the NRA would like to lose the current national debate they could do no better than continuing with LaPierre as their face to the public.  He is the Pat Robertson of the 2nd Amendment and, quite frankly, the 2nd Amendment deserves a lot better than Wayne LaPierre.

I say this following his numerous misfires on Meet The Press. A dreadful interview.  Into the liberal lion’s den he went, with literal crap in the corner of his mouth while David Gregory studiously avoided mentioning it to him for the entirety of the prosecution decidedly hostile cross-examination.  While the idea of having an armed guard or allowing a licensed teacher to be able to carry may have some merit, the rote delivery of “what we need is a good guy with a gun x 15″ is some of the lamest rhetoric I’ve heard since Mitt Romney told people to vote for “love of country” contra Obama’s message of revenge.   Like the Republicans selecting Romney to take on the failure of the Obama presidency, the NRA is sending a rusty blunderbuss into a landmined warzone with motion detecting sentry cannons.

This is the best you’ve got?  This speaks nothing of his press conference earlier this week where he dusted of such golden oldies as:

And here’s another dirty little truth that the media try their best to conceal. There exists in this country, sadly, a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells and stows violence against its own people. Through vicious, violent video games with names like “Bullet Storm,” “Grand Theft Auto,” “Mortal Combat,” and “Splatterhouse.”

These are the comments of someone who has no connection to modern culture.  Twenty-year old video games that no one has seen since the Clinton Administration?  I understand the argument.  However, it’s being poorly made and delivered by someone reading it off of index cards who could not extemporaneously produce a more relevant example.  There are ultraviolent video games out there.  Call of Duty, Battlefield, Resident Evil.  They make more than Hollywood blockbusters.  Many more with subversive elements like Bioshock.   Breaking Bad glamorizes meth dealing. American Horror Story glamorized Columbine.  Calling out Mortal Combat or “Kindergarten Killers” is tantamount to demanding Dee Snyder testify in front of Congress again.

The NRA needs a new messenger.  One who’s had a little less surgery and is not locked in the good old days when Charlton Heston could smooth over his bellicosity to those not in the choir.  There are numerous people – Democrat party officials, school teachers and the other Democrat nuts who are making death threats against the members of the NRA with impunity and the equivalent of an endorsement from the media.  Not a word from LaPierre.  We don’t need guns to hunt deer.  We need guns to kill Democrats who want to kill us.

He offered no response to Blowdry’s suggetion that the NRA be responsible for funding guards in schools?  Really?  Why not force Planned Parenthood to pay for abstinence education at public schools?  This leap of demanding a private organization to assume guilt and financial responsibility for the actions taken by someone who was not a member or supporter is downright Soviet.  The shooter is dead.  The mother he killed to illegally obtain the weapon he used is dead.  Eric Holder is ripping a page out of Vladimir Putin’s playbook and providing some sham pretext to raid the store where Nancy Lanza legally purchased her rifle.  A store that did nothing wrong is being raided because someone tried to rob it and the media is painting it as “they were being raided by the feds for other reasons”.

Where is the argument about personal responsibility?  Whether it’s the movies you watch, the pills you take, the car you drive, the gun you buy it is no shock that the party who does not believe in individual responsibility would do so in this case either.  But for the head of the NRA to spew some “it’s as much everybody’s fault as us” is a rhetorical failing.  It’s Hollywood’s fault.  It’s video games fault.  Blah, blah, blah.  There was one person responsible for the Newtown shooting and that person is dead.  If he would have lived Liberals would be arguing that he should get an attorney free of charge, get his Bachelor’s Degree and suckle on the taxpayer’s teat for 70 years until he died of old age.  Every few years one would argue that he didn’t get a fair trial and should be let go like the amateur Norman Mailers they are.

These are serious times and the 2nd Amendment demands a serious defender.  To paraphrase I Own The World’s observation, the people who say it’s impossible to deport 12 million illegal aliens are somehow convinced that they are going to confiscate 280 million firerams.  The notion floated by New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo lets the gungrabber’s mask slip:

In a radio interview on Thursday with Albany’s WGDJ-AM, New York governor Andrew Cuomo said that he plans to work with state legislators next month to submit a proposal for new gun-control laws; in particular, Cuomo said, “our focus is assault weapons,” because current state laws regulating the weapons “have more holes that Swiss cheese.”

“I don’t think legitimate sportsmen are going to say, ‘I need an assault weapon to go hunting,’” he said.

Cuomo continued, “Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it.”

The 2nd Amendment was not written to protect the rights of hunters.  Much less “legitimate” hunters as deemed by the Governor of New York.  It was meant so that a tyrannical government would get its bloody comeuppance when the time inevitably comes.  It was meant to stop Andrew Cuomos and Michael Bloombergs.  Your government is breaking into your home at night.  It is stealing the rings off your fingers at the funeral home.  It is stealing your child’s birthright.  And now it wants to steal the god-given right for you to be able to defend yourself.

You win the argument through debate so that you do not have to win it on your doorstep.  LaPierre has failed at that job.

RELATED:  Did David Gregory violate D.C. law with his extremely violent, high capacity prop comedy ambush of LaPierre this morning?  Video at Legal Insurrection complete with LaPierre’s visible mouth crud.  Spoiler Alert – probably.  But he’d get mad if you showed a picture of an abortion when debating “choice”.

***

Thanks to BigFurHat at the always hilarious IOTW for the linky and the kind words.  As a sidebar, I don’t discount the need to encapsulate one’s message so that it can fit on a bumpersticker.  I do find fault with LaPierre’s numerous attempts to jam the clumsy penis talking point of his test-polled catchphrase into whatever lull in a hostile interview that he mistakes as a hole an opening.  But I say that about everybody.

    The NRA is more than just it’s spokesmen. It is over 4 million citizens who have paid their dues and put their good name down as supporting the Second Amendment. We represent ourselves and 50 plus million gun owners who SHOULD be members of the NRA. In the end it is all about influence and the money to influence politicians. The AARP does what it does and is somewhat effective.
    The more the corrupt leftists like Schumer, Feinstein, and obama do to restrict freedom, the more people will wake up and restrict their future in politics and “leadership”. The American people need to wake up and act for their children’s future instead of waiting for the next government check so they can get a a better Iphone. It’s an ignorant electorate that has resulted in this administration.

    Wayne LaPierre is aware of this

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIdBuK7_g3M

    There is NO CHANCE of debate. America is over.

    keep your powder dry!

  3. Veritas Says:

    The question isn’t whether you have ever been a member of the NRA but whether you are a member of the ACLU.

  4. Brian Says:

    I don’t even know what that means. Maybe when the ACLU files a lawsuit to get Nakoula Basseley out of jail but other than that I wouldn’t support them either.

  5. Robert17 Says:

    I’m less than surprised about LaPierre’s failure in being able to adequately elucidate the issue. There was a time when anyone going into a debate actually practiced the talking points, was aware of the psychology of the other contestant, perhaps even hired a debate coach in order to “win” the day. It appears that BS’ing off the cuff is as good as he’s got. Too weak.
