Like a lot of people, I was wathing some sunday night football this weekend when I was lectured by the talking chimp Bob Costas about gun violence. Bob’s theory is that in the fantasy world of his where guns cease to exist, all violence also ceases to exist. Bob’s dream is to eliminate guns and thus eliminate the general populations right and ability to defend themselves. Like a typical lib, Bob likes to take isolated incidents such as the fatal shooting by a Kansas City Chief player earlier in the weekend, and extrapolate that to the normal for all of society.
You see, Bob is a utopian idiot. He takes this incident and makes it the norm to push his ideology, a world without guns. Bob fails to realize that the nature of some humans, much of whom are in our government structure, seek to dominate and oppress their fellow man. Typical of any utopian concept, you end up with an elite ruling class making decisions for the plebes, or the rest of us dopes. I guess Bob sees himself in the enlightened category and thus, would be a member of the elite class. This way, he would be free to participate in the creation of rules that the rest of us would be forced to live by.
The problem is, this was just an isolated incident. Millions upon millions of lawful gun owners go through their daily routines without any incident. There is one thing that stops ideologues like Bob from forcing his opinion and his ideal of life on the rest of us through the force of the federal government and that is the 2nd amendment. For any utopian, the concept needs to be issued by force as most reject this simplistic view of the world. Just as most who pay taxes only do so at the point of the federal governments gun so to speak and not because they feel that it’s the best use of their money. Bob simply feels that he and those of his ilk, are better equipped to make decisions for you and me. One of which being that he does not see the reason or need for us to own firearms. It would be best that they just disappear.
As we are all well aware, this will not happen. The governments meddling in the owning and possession of firearms has only hurt law abiding citizens. The criminal and those who seek to torment and harass others, can easily purchase or steal firearms to commit their crimes. Instead of dealing with the problem of those who need mental help to prevent violent crimes, libs go after the tool used to commit these crimes. If it was not a gun, maybe it would have been a knife, or let’s face it, a football player could probably just as easily have choked this woman to death. If the libs have their way, our society will slowly fall into the same tyranny that we fought a revolution to escape.
Here’s a newsflash: nobody is as smart as Barack Obama. Also, nobody is as smart or selfless as our federal government. They are the ones who watch out for us and tell us how to save money for the future, how to take care of ourselves and stay healthy, what to drive, what power to use, what food to eat, and many other helpful hint to keep us alive. If not for them, we’d be left to blind luck and the path set by our family that came before us. Our skills and talents mean nothing. Or at least, that’s what our president thinks…
We have heard so much about the “rights” of the public sector unions to bargain collectively for things like pay increases, benefits, etc. What we don’t hear much of is the collective responsibility that these teachers should have for their performance. Teachers in Chicago recently went on strike not happy with generous pay increases in pretty bad economic times. Now, I am one who believes in good education, but let’s face it, throwing more money at the problem of our failing school system has not helped the problem.
Where is the collective responsibility that the teachers union should feel for failing your kids? Yes, some school systems are better than others, and some get more funds than others, but should we not look at the performance collectively? When a group decides to be a group and get raises as a large collective of employees, than they should also bear the brunt of the responsibility for the failure of the system. Nobody can argue that public schools in Chicago perform well. Teachers make a decent salary, an average of $76,000 per year. Yet they are looking for increases based on what? Should increase in pay be a result of good performance or the other way around? Employees in the private sector must abide by this basic law of economics that good performance leads to increases in pay and benefits. Unfortunately, I think we are dealing with a process and system that is entirely corrupted by the unions that put the collective before the student and not the other way around.
I have heard a lot of discussion after the recent Colorado shooting regarding the need to ban certain types of weapons because, well, regular Americans just don’t need these types of weapons. Not only do I completely disagree with this premise, but I also see this as a calculated move by our leaders to disarm our population. Their intent is not to make the streets safer, or to really do anything to protect us as described in the Constitution as one of their primary functions. As any rational thinking human knows, the only people that these strict gun laws hurt is the law abiding citizen. Drug lords, criminals and anyone else out to do harm to others have no problem getting any type of weapons, even military grade in some cases.
The reason for the second amendment was, as Ice-T recently stated, to protect us from tyranny. Our government is spiraling out of control and we succumb to a mere 535 persons to regulate our lives for us down to the food we eat, the cars we drive and soon, the air we breathe. Their goal with gun control is to make an easily managed citizenry, no other reason, period. Common citizens should have access to any type of weapon made today. You can’t fight an army of M-16 armed government drones with potato guns, but this is exactly what the government elite want. They cry and moan about making the world a better place, but this is all bullshit. Arming every citizen in the US would do the exact opposite of what they claim which is to make the streets much safer and lessen the crimes of the truly insane such as in Colorado.
The fantasy of a gun free world is glamorous but completely unattainable. Limiting what the population can and can’t have should not be left to any congress anywhere. They can no more limit out second amendment rights as they can our first amendment rights of free speech or freedom of religion. Why don’t they come down this hard on the freedom of the press in today’s ultra liberal main street media?
It seems our current administration loves to help out the little guy. Whether it is the Libyan rebels, or the Syrian rebels, or Al Queda..oops, he tells us that the support is to help to overthrow a dictatorial regime that oppresses it’s people. Well, what more oppressive, dictatorial regime is there than the Cuban on that has held it’s people against their will for over 50 years? The country that lies a mere 90 miles off the coast of Florida has rebels that would love to live the free life if only there were a benevolent government willing to assist. Could it be that our president only desires to help Muslim countries with Muslim rebels? Or is he to enamored with the communist form of government to offer any help to those who live under it’s thumb? I am not sure of the answer but it does seem curious that he has no interest in other areas of the world that also have big issues with human rights.
If I were the GOP, I would wait on any repeal votes until after the election. The stigma from this law that will now be viewed as the largest tax increase in modern times, will ruin any position Obama can claim on the economy. The bill which was already unpopular, will continue to sink the democratic party except for the rats that will desert the ship as it sinks. The more libs that scurry for their political lives, the more isolated Obama will be, and the realization of Jimmy Carter Jr. will be complete. Could this have been the plan of Justice Roberts all along? The thought of this branch of our government having this much power was in no way intended when our government was developed over 200 years ago. Since the common thought was that this bill would be in some way found unconstitutional, everyone seems more panicked by the actual outcome.
So in the end, when everyone was fighting for or against tax increases or decreases, whether on the rich or on all people, the bottom line is that Obama has now created a tax that will directly impact his much revered “middle class”. As with all liberal policies, the outcome is often far worse than the intended benefit.
Nothing pleases a recent grad, newlyweds, or the proud new parents of their first child more that receiving the gift of…
throwing money away by donating it to the Obama campaign. That’s right, you can show just how committed you are to Marxism by giving your friends a gift that really doesn’t give at all. You then could possibly say that you contributed to that ad that was full of lies or better yet, payed off a lobbyist or other large campaign contributor. Don’ hesitate and think about it, just click the link and donate now!
Remember all the ballyhoo about the huge risks that Obama took when he ordered the killing of Osama Bin Laden? if not, here it is:
The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.
Take note of the risks Obama takes, not the seals or the military. Anyway, I digress.
Now, let’s move to Fast and Furious. Here is a case where we see that this could possibly go all the way to the top. Now, as Bill Clinton himself said, it could go horribly bad for Obama. The difference is, now we are dealing with a situation where many are dead including a US border patrol agent. Typical leftists democrats will never take responsibility when things go wrong as I am positive would have been the case if Osama was not there or a Seal member was killed in the raid. They play the good side of any situation and run like the dogs they are from ones that go bad.
Statement from Obama in March of 2011 in regards to dealing with immigration via executive order or other means outside the political system. Seems he’s forgotten this position from just over a year ago or has evolved yet again on his position.
“There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”
