Obama and the Attempt to Destroy the Second Amendment
Pajamas Media ^ | October 6, 2008 | David T. Hardy

Talk about a smoking gun ...

As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama must demonstrate executive experience, but he remains strangely silent about his eight years (1994-2002) as a director of the Joyce Foundation, a billion dollar tax-exempt organization. He has one obvious reason: during his time as director, Joyce Foundation spent millions creating and supporting anti-gun organizations.

There is another, less known, reason.

During Obama’s tenure, the Joyce Foundation board planned and implemented a program targeting the Supreme Court. The work began five years into Obama’s directorship, when the Foundation had experience in turning its millions into anti-gun “grassroots” organizations, but none at converting cash into legal scholarship.

The plan’s objective was bold: the judicial obliteration of the Second Amendment....

C’mon Barak, you pansy coward. Come and take my guns away from me!

You sneer at white people clutching their guns and religion, but you say nothing about armed gangs of blacks and Hispanics that terrorize, rob, murder, and rape people.

You prissy, pansy, coward!!!!!!!!!

Bogus solicited only articles hostile to the individual right view of the Second Amendment, offering authors $5,000 each. But word leaked out, and Prof. Randy Barnett of Boston University volunteered to write in defense of the individual right to arms. Bogus refused to allow him to write for the review, later explaining that “sometimes a more balanced debate is best served by an unbalanced symposium.” Prof. James Lindgren, a former Chicago-Kent faculty member, remembers that when Barnett sought an explanation he “was given conflicting reasons, but the opposition of the Joyce Foundation was one that surfaced at some time.” Joyce had bought a veto power over the review’s content.

I love it when liberals unknowingly describe themselves or their aspirations in language completely free from their normal blathering.

Trying to do my part.

If you spend any time watching PBS, you'll see that The Joyce Foundation pops up occassionally as one of their non-sponsors for shows...most notably, The Jim Lehrer News Hour.

Very much the way Communists seize power, they don’t have to march in the streets or throw Molotov Cocktails, they quitely seize power by infecting Institutions.

This is what happened (IMO) to some of the Mainline Protestant Churches and some Foundations.

comments from the article:

Mike:
Hey; is it just my sat system or what? I’ve had my Dish Network sat receiver tune into Obama’s sat channel seemingly by default. Is the Sat Company doing this as a form of propaganda?. This is Orwellian. Will Dish Network now check on me to determine if I pledge to Obama?, and report me to the Annointed One if I don’t, then direct the “truth squads” to arrest me?, Every morning, and a couple of times daily, the sat switches to Obama.

Mike,
I live in Alabama and have noticed the same thing happening with my Dish Network reciever.
When I turn it on, it comes on set to channel 73(Obama channel) no matter what channel it was on when it was turned off.
It used to come back on to the channel it was on when it was turned off.
Strange, truely strange.

It warms the cockles of my heart to see my fellow citizens preparing themselves. I don’t plan to buy any more guns though. Just lots and lots of ammo so I can keep getting better at shooting my “critical 3”.

Obama is planting the seeds for another bloody civil war, one in which could in the end take him down.

“Funny”, isn’t it? BO has TWO very legitimate claims at executive experience, but in response to taunts about lack of executive experience he won’t mention either organization... because he doesn’t want people to discover what they did!

Yeah, I just started putting together a collection and it has become very addicting as I constantly want to purchase a new gun. I want to play it smart, though, and keep what I got. I have an AR and a XD40 so I'm thinking I should just buy plenty of ammo for both.

I was at a gun show this weekend and had to leave after I bought mags and ammo because the temptation was too great to buy another gun.

He’s much more clever than that.

Sure, you can have ‘em. Sure, you can keep ‘em.
Oh, you want to feed ‘em? Here, fill out this form and pay this prohibitory tax ... IF you can find anyone who can stay in business long enough to stock ammo.
Oh, you want to buy another one? Fill out your expanded NFA forms, pay the $5000 tax, and wait six months for processing ... IF you can find a friend willing to sell, ‘cuz no business can make enough money from ‘em to stay afloat.
Oh, you want to use ‘em? Sorry, not safe to do so ... all the indoor ranges are driven out of business by high insurance costs, and outdoor ranges are verboten.
And never mind the social stigma ostracising you for being an owner at all*.

Remember, BHO comes out looking like the reasonable one in this scenario, and you’re the spittle-flinging nut looking for a fight. What 2nd Amendment?

* - Real life: my niece has learned that “gun” is a bad word and thus won’t say it.

My way of looking at this is that I would not like to find myself with ammunition that I couldn't shoot. That required me to buy at least one firearm capable of firing any of the most common calibers. And for the most common calibers, why have just one gun? It might break.

You do realize that someone monitoring this thread in a BATFE office somewhere just soiled himself.

Heh, wish I had a gun room like that!

Actually, it looks like the machine gun vault at Falcon Field (Mesa, AZ), before the collection was sold several years ago.

Yeah, good point. Like I said I have an AR and a XD40. You’re right, though, I should look at getting a .308 or something chambered for 7.62.
