  • The Second Amendment Is Not Negotiable

    A few things need to be clear. First, the Founders of this nation did not put the 2nd Amendment in place to protect deer hunting. Second, the Bill of Rights is not a list of rights granted us by the government. The rights listed exist sans government. This document points them out lest the people in government forget. Third, when you hear that this is a republic and not a democracy that is not merely rhetoric. There is a stark difference between the two forms of governance. In a Constitutional Republic, the Constitution is the supreme law of the land and may not be altered by a mere vote of the government. The majority does not have the power to remove rights from the minority…and some rights are unalienable, meaning they are not in the purview of governments.

    The 2nd Amendment is there to insure the other ones are not usurped. It is there to make certain that any government we elect doesn’t become tyrannical or dictatorial. It is not there for hunters or even self-defense of our home from crime. It is there to provide protection from government seeking to take away freedom and liberty from the people. The Bill of Rights in its entirety will be protected by whatever means become necessary. That there are forces within our nation who have decided that our rights no longer serve them is immaterial to the existence of my right to bear arms. This is not a debate.

    I am not interested in the give and take of opinions about basic rights - others opinions of my basic rights doesn’t matter to me. You don’t have a say in whether I have free speech or the right of self-determination. It was a violent revolution that put the government out of the “granting rights” business. It will take another such action to change that.

    A man walks into a crowded bar pointing a gun around.

    “Which one of you bastards has been sleeping with my wife?” He shouts.

    A voice from the back of the bar replies.

    “I don’t think you brought enough ammo.”

    Dear Santa,
    How are you? How is Mrs. Claus? I hope everyone, from the reindeer to the elves, is fine. I have been a very good boy this year. I would like an X-Box 360 with Call of Duty IV and an iPhone 4 for Christmas. I hope you remember that come Christmas Day.
    Merry Christmas,
    Timmy Jones

    Dear Timmy,
    Thank you for you letter. Mrs. Claus, the reindeer and the elves are all fine and thank you for asking about them. Santa is a little worried all the time you spend playing video games and texting. Santa wouldn’t want you to get fat. Since you have indeed been a good boy, I think I’ll bring you something you can go outside and play with.
    Merry Christmas,
    Santa Claus

    * *
    Mr. Claus,
    Seeing that I have fulfilled the “naughty vs. Nice” contract, set by you I might add, I feel confident that you can see your way clear to granting me what I have asked for. I certainly wouldn’t want to turn this joyous season into one of litigation. Also, don’t you think that a jibe at my weight coming from an overweight man who goes out once a year is a bit trite?
    Tim Jones

    Mr. Jones,
    While I have acknowledged you have met the “nice” criteria, need I remind you that your Christmas list is a request and in no way is it a guarantee of services provided. Should you wish to pursue legal action, well that is your right. Please know, however, that my attorney’s have been on retainer ever since the Burgermeister Meisterburger incident and will be more than happy to take you on in open court. Additionally, the exercise I alluded to will not only improve your health, but also improve your social skills and potentially help clear up a complexion that looks like the bottom of the Burger King fry bin most days.
    Very Truly Yours,
    S Claus

    Now look here Fat Man,
    I told you what I want and I expect you to bring it. I was attempting to be polite about this but you brought my looks and my friends into this. Now you just be disrespecting me. I’m about to tweet my boys and we’re gonna be waiting for your fat ass and I’m taking my game console, my game, my phone, and whatever else I want. WHAT EVER I WANT, MAN!
    * *

    Listen Pizza Face,
    Seriously??? You think a dude that breaks into every house in the world on one night and never gets caught sweats a skinny G-banger wannabe? “He sees you when you’re sleeping; He knows when you’re awake”. Sound familiar, genius? You know what kind of resources I have at my disposal. I got your s—t wired, Jack. I go all around the world and see ways to hurt people that if I described them right now, you’d throw up your Totino’s pizza roll all over the carpet of your mom’s basement. You’re not getting what you asked for, but I’m still stopping by your crib to stomp a mud hole in you’re ass and then walk it dry. Chew on that, Petunia.
    S Clizzy

    Dear Santa,
    Bring me whatever you see fit. I’ll appreciate anything.

    That’s what I thought you little b@stard.

    Given Obama’s “goal” wouldn’t it be a good thing to simply go over the fiscal cliff - no compromise with him? He’s going to attempt to ‘roll’ the house Republicans for the next four years, why not stop him now?

    Besides, if taxes go up on the middle class, Obama will have to come back with a deal to change that outcome.

    On the other hand, do we have anyone in the House leadership that can negotiate worth a damn?

    Male Logic

    A wife asks her husband, “Could you please go shopping for me and buy one carton of milk and if they have avocados, get 6.”

    A short time later the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk.

    The wife asks him, “Why did you buy 6 cartons of milk?”

    He replied, “They had avocados.”

    If you’re a woman, I’m sure you’re going back to read it again! Men will get it the first time. My work is done here.

    The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray:
    ‘Take only ONE . God is watching.’

    Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.
    A child had written a note, ‘Take all you want. God is watching the apples.’

    Hmmm.....interesting comparison between what Gore is doing and Hubbard did. Gore’s efforts do appear to be along the same lines as starting a religion - only in his case only relatively recent events as used to illustrate his point, but none the less group together to ‘prove’ his climate change theory as fact.

    I just watched the Dust Bowl on PBS - Gore would have had a field day in the early 30’s with that event.

    Anyway, what a load of codswallop, but on the other hand very profitable and it seems no end to the line of people that buy into this crap.
