Posted on 01/15/2013 11:41:53 AM PST by Kaslin
So Congress is not going to pass gun legislation. It doesnt sound as if they need to worry about it as the President is all too willing to take care of that for them. And New York has a deal in the works to begin limiting firearms.
And Chuck Schumer is asking for an end to gun sales until Congress can find a way to limit gun sales. If anyone is still mind-numbingly stupid enough to remain in the State of New York under the leadership of a bunch Hugo Chavez wanna-bes, hey they are free to screw up their own lives as much as they want. But these people should not be free to screw up anyone elses life. By all means, let your government tell you how big your sodas should be, how to manage your pain and control your self-defense. Just dont York-up the rest of the nation.
As of this writing, President Obama is telling his media that the American people want him to close tax loopholes. Im not sure which section of the Americas to which he is referring. No American I know is in favor of higher taxes. But then, I tend to talk to actual flesh and blood people, not someone manufactured by the media.
And now according to the Washington Examiner, the governments highway fund is getting a bit low with the advent of fuel efficient vehicles. And apparently, the Marble Mafia is again thinking about a mileage tax that according to the GAO, could eventually boost the gas tax some 250 percent. Right now you are paying just south of $100 per year. Thats right now. A mileage tax would take about $248 per annum out of your wallet. And with paychecks being on average $50 lighter per pay period Im sure you can afford that. Right?
We could go to our governors, city councils, county commissions, sheriffs and police chiefs and say If you allow unjust and unconstitutional laws and regulations to be imposed on us, we will oust you in favor of people who will not allow that to occur.
We could tell our local stores that we refuse to patronize them so long as they carry newspapers and magazines that advance a Marxist, nation-shredding agenda.
We could fly in the face of anti-Christian organizations and make a point of praying where others can see us, and living as Christ commanded even in the face of a media that ridicules us.
We could send back our cable and satellite boxes and tell the providers we refuse to finance left wing, anti-Christian, anti-family propaganda. Maybe there are some good shows out there, but the checks we write those companies give hypocrites like Piers Morgan, Michael Moore and Al Gore their platform.
We could stop buying from stores and companies that are in bed with this administration.
We could find a way to actively stand by companies that have the rare virtue of courage is facing down an HHS mandate that would force people of conscience.
We can stop going to the local Cineplex that peddles every vice, from a Hollywood that makes millions of dollars from that vice, and then turns around and blames us for the state of affairs.
We could, but we wont. After all, Duck Dynasty is on, the kids love Sesame Street, and video games are fun for everyone, right? We want ease. We ant comfort. We want convenience.
So we will write columns, post cute declarations on Facebook, and ask people to like them if they love America or Jesus, or the Second Amendment. And we will post comments about columns like this, but we wont do a thing.
The Left took power because we ceded the power. In the name of convenience, entertainment, or maybe because we just did not want to come under fire ourselves we ceded power. We ceded power to Marxist labor unions and Trotskyites in our universities. We kept silent because someone pretending to be the majority might call us racists and homophobes.
We got lazy. We got complacent, and we gave power to the political class and we gave the national message to a class of Hollywood prostitutes. And now we bemoan the fate of the nation.
Yes, they will take away our First and Second Amendment rights. Yes, they will regulate us into obsolescence. Yes they will lower our standard of healthcare and our standard of living. Yes they will tax us all into poverty. Yes they can, and do you know why? Because we let them. We have neither the courage or the fortitude to stand up to them or take away their power.
And spare me the comments. Spare me the cut and paste comments from you leftist who are parroting the mantras of your betters in the vain hope that one day you too will have a condo in Aspen. Go back to poring over your talking points and bellowing for your mommy to bring you another Hot Pocket while you try to become a fourth level Orc-Mage on World of Warcraft,
And spare me the comments from the right. This is not Bushs fault, Romneys fault or the fault of the RINOs. This is a collective screw up on all of our parts. We let the country get away and now we are to afraid to take it back. Until we send back that cable box, boycott that theater, or product, and until we engage our leaders mano a mano; until we refuse to submit, we are going to get exactly what we deserve.
Politics: Two 6-year-olds suspended for playing cops and robbers - 'finger guns' to blame
By ROBERT LAURIE - If you outlaw 'finger guns,' only outlaws will have 'finger guns'
Last week, two six-year-old students from White Marsh Elementary School in Maryland, were hauled into the principals office. Their crime was one for the record books. The boys had committed the unforgivable sin of pointing imaginary "finger guns at each other.
Since we live in a zero-tolerance world, where adults are incapable of discerning imaginary violence from the real thing, Principal Marcia Sprankle suspended the children immediately.
You read that right. They were suspended for the illegal use of "finger guns. More at:http://www.caintv.com/two-year-olds-suspended-for-pl
Hell, all the chest thumping and those few of us who still believe in the brilliance of the founders have not even drawn ANY line in the sand so why should these charlatans fear us?
What or where is the line in the sand? We have already allowed them to violate “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”
We have thousands of sluts who demand we pay for their abortions which the Constitution is silent yet the same human debris feels free to INFRINGE on something the Constitution states unequivocally “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”
So no, because a “do not cross” line has not been defined there will be no action and cannot be any action and the damned politicians know it and are laughing at us.
Lincoln Brown hit the nail on the head!
What is this obsession 0bama has with children? Is he a pedophile?
Gun control is DOA in the House. It was DOA when the rats had 3/5 of both houses. The only way he can do it is by illegal fiat.
