Snow tires were invented in Finland. Nokia, the company doing the inventing, would become better known in the U.S. as a maker of cell phones. The tire part was split from the cell phone part in 1988. While the cell phones have lost their luster, Nokian snow tires remain respected.

Handguns did not enter common use until the early 16th century. Strangely, the murder rate drastically dropped.

Sane Law Abiding Citizens Need Guns — Why do sane law aiding citizens need guns? Sometimes the sane, law abiding citizen is in danger and he has only seconds but the deputy is four minutes away.
That is why sane, law abiding citizens need guns. The let-government-have-a-monopoly-on-everything crowd never lets a crisis go to waste.
Please keep the reality in mind and not the fiction being presented as news by the globalist-connected media. This is not about safety or protecting children. It’s about self-proclaimed elites controlling the lives of others not in their clique.
You have to rely on yourself and not the government to keep you and those you love safe.
That deputy is only human so please don’t hate him. Remember, though, government is made up entirely of humans and should be trusted only as much as you’d trust another human you barely know.

Court Created Congressional Mess
By Leo Knepper
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court released its version (see image) of the congressional districts map on Monday. As we noted previously, the Court lacks authority under the Pennsylvania Constitution to draw districts. It is likely that Republicans will file suit in federal court to stop the Court-created Congressional districts from being used in the 2018 elections. One avenue for seeking a federal injunction is summarized by Justice Max Baer, the lone Democrat to dissent from the final opinion:
“While I have expressed my misgivings with allowing an election to proceed based upon a constitutionally-flawed map, I continue to conclude that the compressed schedule failed to provide a reasonable opportunity for the General Assembly to legislate a new map in compliance with the federal Constitution’s delegation of redistricting authority to state legislatures.[US Constitution, Article 1, Section 4]
“My skepticism regarding the time allotted the Legislature has been borne out. Democracy generally, and legislation specifically, entails elaborate and time-consuming processes. Here, regardless of culpability, the Legislature has been unable to pass a remedial map to place on the Governor’s desk for signature or veto. Under these circumstances, Pennsylvania and federal law permit the use of the existing, albeit unconstitutional, map for one final election.” [Emphasis added]
A second issue is the Court’s districts do not minimize the number of splits to local governments (i.e., townships, municipalities, counties, etc.). An analysis by Amanda Holt found that the districts adopted by the Court resulted in more splits (79) than the district maps submitted by Republicans (61) and a separate plan offered by the Senate Democrats (60). You may not recognize her name, but Ms. Holt’s research in 2011 was the primary evidence used to throw out the state House and Senate districts for constitutional reasons. Her current finding is significant because the Pennsylvania Supreme Court stated in their original decision that local governments could only be split to ensure equal population. Furthermore, as she notes on her blog, the fact that the Court’s districts are drawn with more splits could demonstrate to a federal judge a lack of “good faith effort.”
The high likelihood of another lawsuit being brought by Republicans to the federal court regarding the Congressional districts means the issue is still up in the air. We will keep you posted as the story continues to develop.

The Rev. Billy Graham, who had done more to preserve this country’s freedom than just about any politician in this generation, has died.
We heard Rev. Graham preach at the Vet in 1992. Ed Rendell was mayor and shared the stage with him. Rendell left early.
Rest in peace, Rev. Graham. We suspect you will.
Billy Graham, R.I.P.
