“Just getting very fustrated”


As are a bunch of us but we must maintain discipline.

Do what I “try” to do when I reach that boiling point of wanting to shout out to and expose myself.

Go inventory my ammo....

Go clean a weapon..........

Go burn some powder and launch some lead at some paper or steel

Make some four legged pigs bleed.......

Go clean a weapon...........

I don’t understand why this wouldn’t be legal. It’s a non-profit PAC. I can see if they used tax dollars, then that would be a problem.

It’s seems stupid, and legal, to me.

Way too many of our elected Representatives seem to take the oath to protect and uphold the Constitution with a grain of salt.


The oath is like today’s marriage vow.....it means nothing anymore. It’s simply an outdated ceremony to liberals and those who completely shirk responsibility.

Moderation is a wonderful thing in 99.5% of all cases but when it comes to protecting one’s God given rights I prefer the extreme side as we are battling higher powers and principalities of the forces of Darkness who are not encumbered by being moderate in their speech and actions.

DEMOCIDE: Socialism, Tyranny, Guns and Freedom

This is a recent Free Republic thread featuring a new essay and 5-minute YouTube video titled “Democide: Socialism, Tyranny, Guns and Freedom.” The video has had 19,000 views in the first four days. It features Obama and his mentor Bill Ayers. I wrote the essay with the same title.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/2990161/posts?page=42

http://youtu.be/rmfs_QM0OIA

I wrote the essay and helped to produce the video. It’s an effort to lift the debate from Newtown “small ball” to the big leagues of democide, where these efforts at “reasonable and commonsense” gun control laws always lead to death by the million in the end.

we need to get this stuff out to those who don’t know. the problem with FR and other freedom blogs is that they tend to preach to the choir.

I get blank stares when I bring up the truth about the Tyranny of zer0’s regime. Like “ that’s not possible...this is America” and “ you must be some kind of reactionary nut”

they just don’t get it.....

I wonder what will it take for them to “get it” and if that happens will it be too late?

Obama has long since passed by silly notions of "legal" or "illegal" (e.g. Fast and Furious) into the realm of raw, blatant power.

In the vernacular, he is the "Cracker" lashing the backs of the slave (white taxpayers) with a bullwhip.

Many people are getting fed up - the rebellion will not be the cake walk they imagine.

I am now helping to produce these video shorts expressly to reach today’s screen-bound non-readers. You have to put the material in front of their eyes where they spend their time. YouTube is such a place, so that’s where I’ll take the message. What freepers can do is send the links to their “reachable” but apolitical family and friends.

The Democide video goes with a short (1,500 word) essay of the same title, so if we have grabbed their attention with the video, they might be ready to digest some printed words for a change, and dig more deeply into the message.

It’s all stuff freepers already know, my goal is to get the message beyond our choir. Hence YouTube videos.

perations Security, or OPSEC, is keeping potential adversaries from discovering our critical information. As the name suggests, it protects our operations – planned, in progress, and those completed. Success depends on secrecy and surprise, so the military can accom- plish the mission faster and with less risk. Our adversaries want our information, and they don’t concentrate on only soldiers to get it. They want you, the family member.

However, how about the NRA doing the same? We still have the right to peacefully assemble.

If Obama's doing it than it is legal if he says so. Welcome to the new America. He's destroying this nation on an hourly basis. By 2016 we will not care if the next conservative candidate is for BIG military because we wont be able to afford one. That's sad but true.

1199 SEIU is the "United Healthcare Workers 1199".

"SEIU today represents 360,000 RNs, and hospital, nursing home and homecare workers of every category throughout New York State, as well as Massachusetts, New Jersey, Florida, Maryland and the District of Columbia."

But the amazing part is that the Obamanistas feel the need to astroturf an NRA event in Albany, New York. This is like Last Stand Hill was for Custer. If they're having trouble in New York, this is going nowhere in most of the purple states. (It was DOA in the red states to begin with.)

The last thing in the WH clown's mind, is whether something is legal or not. He has got a lot of TRANSFORMING to do in the next four years - he has made his intentions loud and clear for all the sheeple of America to hear. Most Americans want a socialist nanny state America is the way I read it, and if that means ignoring the laws and shredding the Constitution well so be it - that is the price we have to pay to correct 234+ years of evil.

Obama says he’ll be taking ‘executive actions’ without Congress on ‘regular basis’ to ‘heal the economy’

Unfortunately, the Repubs are joining in ....

The Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said Friday that he's interested in writing legislation this year improving background checks for gun buyers and cracking down on illegal firearms sales.

In an interview, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., provided little detail about his plans. But he said the federal background check system should be fixed to make sure more people with serious mental illnesses don't get firearms.

(Even though...) Criminals and people with significant mental problems are among those barred by federal law from buying guns. (Emphasis mine.)

More here.

But that is what the opposition is counting on. They want to ratchet up the pressure until someone cracks, and then use that against everyone.

Alinski - Insight your enemy to anger, and then use that anger as a weapon against them.

Wait and watch. The left will be the ones who start something. They're overly emotional, and have no foresight. We can then use their anger against them instead.
The democrats/socialists/communists have run out of other peoples money. The dependent left isn't going to be happy when their politicians can no longer steal for them. So, wait and let THEM be the "insane crazies that need to be controled."

If Zero needs to bus in the 1199 to counter the NRA in New York, I'm beginning to feel hopeful that we'll win this war.

I agree. NY is a very liberal state. Why would they have to bus in even one person?

They complain about everything in NY all the time anyway. If it isn't one ridiculous complaint - it's another. The Occupy kids blamed Wall Street because the liberal colleges stole all their money. What did Wall Street have to do with it? It's the liberal professors who are getting rich off these useful idiots.

Liberals are never happy about anything. Self inflicted misery is all they know. Upstate brings in big hunting revenues. They're going to lose that because of the gun laws. NY is already broke because of all the freeloaders it has to feed.

New York hospitals so with the bazillions in Medicare/Medicaid money, that's right. But I still think it's great that the Obamanistas need to astroturf an event in New York, which has led the nation with draconian gun control laws since the Sullivan Act of 1911!

And the democrats have the audacity to say they couldn't possibly cut the government budget. If these people are protesting rather than working, we don't need them. Their jobs - obviously - aren't that important.

Now we know what jobs can be cut. Just get the names of these people.

The more they push, the more people are starting to take note.

At first they were babbling about "reasonable" measures, but they are shedding that husk daily, and getting more shrill as people aren't being manipulated.

The more they tighten down the screws, the more they lose--the more people say 'Wait a minute, that isn't right!'.

So stand your ground, hold fast, stay resolute.

They are the ones who overreach, and they will do so in spectacular fashion if no one on our side wavers.
