A Message from President Barack Obama.

‘My fellow Americans, we are faced with an Enemy so nebulous that we cannot name it, an Enemy so sinister that we cannot conceive it, an Enemy so deadly that we cannot understand it.

It has been the mission of this Administration to do everything we deemed appropriate to confront this terror which faces this nation and it’s leaders.

As you have recently heard from the CIA director, the problem has only become worse.

This message is not new.  It is a familiar one we have heard for the last 8-years.

So, It is at this point I must take the next step in our war against this enemy.

I call on you, the American People, to fight with us.

I need your participation and assistance if there is any hope of our winning this war.

Tonight I ask you to make America safer place for us to live.

We must remove guns capable of killing people from America.
We must surrender all of your e-mail and electronic correspondence.
We must provide complete and unobstructed access to all of your communication devices and computers.
We must institute strict controls on the internet and your use of it.
We must punish all dangerous speech and ideas quickly and decisively.
We must strengthen the Federal authority, and enforcement, of our Secret terror watch lists.
And finally,
We must expand our Secret courts through additional taxpayer funding.

If you, the America People, are willing to Submit to this very basic outline for A Safer America, there is a Possibility for Peace in our Lifetimes.

Thank you and, God Willing, May Peace be Unto All of Us.’


Obama Gun Control

As I tap this out President Barack Obama is presenting his Executive Gun Control to the American People.
He is expressing his Deep, Deep, Concern that ‘irresponsible’ people as well as Felons have been able to purchase firearms. He is also Demanding we do something to address the supposed explosion of ‘Mass Shootings’.  And because of these two things, which are not connected and both dubious claims at every level, President Obama has decided to further restrict access, to and make more difficult, the purchase of firearms in the United States.
Meanwhile…

You can continue to be an Overt Jihadist and secure a Visa to come to the United States to commit one of these ‘Mass Shootings’. (It should be noted most of us who are not interested in challenging the validity of the Second Amendment consider such an event Terrorism.)

You can forget about the Drive this Administration undertook to Up-Arm Mexican Drug Cartels with Taxpayer funds in order to convince the American Public that their was a scourge of Death and Destruction occurring on our Southern Border because of American Guns. (While well over 300 innocent Mexican Citizens, and a number of Mexican and American Law Enforcement Officers, died… it was because of the American Progressive Leftist Government desperately trying to do exactly what their current Leader is doing today by way of Unconstitutional Presidential Fiat.) Speaking of Mexican Drug Cartels… and Terrorists…

You can still walk across the Borders of this country and do what you wish without the fear of being stopped, or once in, being deported. If, on the outside chance, you are confronted the odds of your legal status being challenged is extremely low. And furthering the extremely low odds of your legal status being challenged, should it occur may land you being sent out of the country where you can begin the process of walking back once again.

In the End… President Obama may have a point about additional controls needing to be placed upon ownership of Weapons. Now having seen his entire News Conference it becomes clear. Each and Every example of Horror he cites involved a Leftist projecting Force over Innocent Individuals.  Natural Rights, in other words the Bill of Rights, in other words the First Ten Amendments to the United States Constitution, should not apply to those who work so diligently to destroy them, and kill the people who believe in them.

I do Demand something Better…

I demand any variety Leftist being prohibited owning any Weapon… ever… as defined by me.

Gun, Knife, Bat, Club, Motor Vehicle, Megaphone, The Office of the Presidency, etc.

Just like porn, I’ll know it when I see it.  And I’ll be watching.

It’s far past time for Meaningful and Effective Socialist Control!


Balkanization

Or…

Why the IRS matters.

The BIG question is, does the IRS scandal matter?

I say yes, it does.

Here’s why:

For almost 100 years the Left in this country has spent untold treasure, and untold man hours, crafting arguments that pit one group against another.

The creation and nurturing of these groups is called Balkanization.

It is the political tactic of getting individuals to identify with a small group sharing similar interests, then pitting them against other small groups who seem to oppose said interests.  The outcome of this manipulation, they hope, is to gain one or the other small groups support in the form of money, and votes, come election time.  We have all seen this.  While it is certainly found on both sides of the aisle, it is the sole motivator used by the Socialists.  It is the proverbial “Us vs. Them”, whomever that may be.  The reason this is the foundation of Socialist politics can be found when individuals educate themselves as to what Socialism is… then recoil in disgust.  Because of this common reaction to Progressive ideology, they are left with identity politics.

The upside for the Statist Left is it distracts us from the paramount task of protecting our Natural Right to Indivdual Feedom and Liberty as outlined in our Founding Documents… what is otherwise a unifying cause.

There is fantastic writing on this phenomena out there, so will I not bore you.

But, what makes the IRS scandal important is the unifying effect it has on the population.  No matter who you are, if you are productive in any way, you are afraid of the IRS.  They have enjoyed that power, fostered it since their inception.  The rub for Liberals lies in the Unity part…

When your entire political success relies on small groups that you keep mad at those you consider your enemy, things start to fall apart when everybody unites.  And, everybody is uniting in outrage over the IRS scandal.  This makes for a very interesting tap dance the Left must perform in order to retain their base (by feigning outrage along with them) while also trying to defend and preserve the fear the IRS reputation evokes.  They must have a complicated, unintelligible, unnavigable tax code allowing unlimited power over the population and it’s productivity.  Socialism requires “special people” with the authority to redistribute wealth.

If you doubt me, you will have plenty of opportunity to see for yourself over the next week or so.  During the hearings look for your local Leftist and count the number of “but’s” in their statements and questions.  In other words, they will start by saying how unbelievable… horrible… terrible… it is for the IRS to target certain groups “BUT”… and then they will go on to defend its legality, or justify it in some way.  They simply cannot lose the power of the IRS.  Liberals on both sides of the aisle know and love the power they find in the U.S. tax code.

For the Socialists, government exists to take your money and give it to someone else… and you’re supposed to love it.  Or at the very least fear it.  Caligula had a famous quote; “Let them Hate me, so long as they Fear me.”

So yes, this scandal matters.  And I think it matters in a very big way.

In a Global way… in a Macro sense…

In fact, the timing could not be better… well, it could have been better.  It could have happened 50 years ago.  Anyway, it was not long ago that those who supported ideas like the Gold Standard were dismissed (after Nixon) to crazy-ville by the Liberal Left.  But time has allowed for many additional alternatives regarding taxation, from flat to consumption.

Many more individuals have become interested in the function of money.  These two facts only make it harder for those who have anointed themselves the smartest people in the room to do as they wish in regard to our economy.  Education has that effect.

So it brings us to today…

The Left has no choice but to try to shut down this IRS scandal.

They cannot afford all of us getting together and opposing something so important to the foundation of their Ideology.  The power of taxation cannot be modified in any way that reduces their ability to redistribute wealth.

They cannot afford alternative ideas designed to fund government functions which do not require one human forcing their subjective decisions upon other humans.  The individual cannot become more independent through the reduction of bureaucratic oversight and punishment.

They cannot afford to have this discussion continue much longer… particularly now that many of us know Liberals exist on both sides of the aisle and no longer fall for the old trick of party identity, but instead have endeavored to gain some ideological understanding.

While it’s a bit late, I’m happy it’s happening.

Cheers to the IRS and the Elitists who run it!  All the better to see you with…

It appears the current Mayor DeBlasio of New York is also tap dancing…

What if They’re not really joking?

Well, They’re not.

Behold… the Zombie Apocalypse contingency plan.

Our Government has a very real plan to handle, or more accurately “address”, a Zombie Apocalypse.

CONOP 8888

We’ve seen The CDC confront Zombies in the past, but they held fast that they were “joking”, kind of.

In an age where Germ Warfare is Alive and Well… the idea of the Walking Dead is not so far-fetched.

Think more in terms of the Walking Terminally Ill and Hyper-Contagious.

This is the scenario the Government is currently working to confront.  The old “What do you do?”

This planning falls in line with other “revelations” like the United States Military having Invasion Plans drawn up, and regularly updated, to Invade Canada… and Mexico.  Only those have haven’t spent much time thinking about it are surprised.  (If you are one of them, We Do and We Do.)

All the more Reason to be a Living, Breathing, Virulent, Second Amendment Supporter!

Anyway, I can’t resist a good Zombie Story… because there are so many bad ones.

Well, time to hit the Rot Gut…


And yet Another Leftist with a Gun?

Apparently the latest shooting Colorado is another young uninformed leftist with a gun.

At what point will we prohibit Socialists from possessing firearms?

Leftists kill.

And Kill.

And Kill.

It’s time to put a stop to Liberal gun ownership.  Private gun shops must start administering psych profiles with the intent to limit Liberals from owning and having access to weapons.


Alphabet Soupgate.

The IRS, DOJ, DOD, CIA, BATFE and next up is the EPA…

Could the Liberal Blitzkrieg have encountered a Republican Winter?

It looks like they might be stalled right outside of their Social Utopia.

I tapped out a little ditty a while back regarding the pulling out of all the stops by the Leftists in Government.  I accused the Republicans (most of which I hold in low regard) of doing nothing to stop what was evident to every sober American… as well as me.

What I failed to take into account was the ability for the Progressives to over-reach.  And, over-reach they have.

It looks to me like the Republicans have no choice but to confront what seems to be the Hydrant Blasting abuse of power and Supercilious Subterfuge being conducted by the minions of Socialism.  It appears that all that Community Organizing has been a bit too effective in motivating the Useful Idiots.

Given the scandals at:

The IRS – targeting groups with Constitution and Patriot in their names because they are considered “the opposition” to the Administration.

The DOJ – using the power of government to covertly investigate members of the press while intimidated their sources.

The DOD – and it’s ties to the lack of response, and subsequent cover-up, during the assassination of our Diplomat and his security team in Benghazi.

The CIA – and the moving of missiles into Syria for the Al Qaeda backed rebels, possibly leading to a new “cold” war with Russia.

The BATFE – and the up-arming of Mexican Drug Cartels which led to the deaths of our Border and Immigration agents… not to mention hundreds of innocent Mexican women and children.

And now the EPA…  and a fabricated employee.  – Manti Te’o has nothing on Ms. Lisa Jackson who created a Mr. Richard Windsor in order to avoid scrutiny of her actions and decisions while serving as Head of the Environmental Protection Agency.  While she didn’t seem to relate her most intimate secrets through Mr. Windsor, she certainly expressed how she believed government’s purpose was to punish business.

“The  EPA and Ms. Lisa Jackson, its chief, have committed extensive violations of law  that should receive in-depth scrutiny from Congress, law enforcement and the  American people.  Yes the Obama administration has yet another serious  scandal on their hands.”

The full article is found at The American Thinker: here.  It’s absolutely worth the read.

The “surprising” revelations show no sign of stopping anytime soon.  And the Republicans are being dragged to the party in a meaningful way by the American people.  (Those damned TEA party types simply won’t go away… who do they think they are teaching folks about the constitution!)

This fall may exceed my greatest expectations in terms of political theater.

The only part of this I find truly amazing is that the Administration is doing nothing to put out any of these inferno’s.  At some point, someone has to get thrown in front of the bus.  Typically it happens sooner than later, because the longer you wait the more of them you have to throw.  But that’s the part I so truly enjoy…

So, I’ll fire up the grill, while Congress is forced by America to fire up the Special Prosecutors.

Nothing says summertime fun like grilling politicians.  (A helpful hint: They taste better if you tenderize them first.)


Let Me make sure I Understand this…

The people who want you to be homeless,
The people who want to exploit you,
The people who want to own your body,
The people who want you to be sick,
The people who want to oppress you,
The people who want you to die…

Are…

The people who want you to have Guns.


DHS and Their Bullet Binge

(Updated at bottom… 040413)

 

It is not a mystery as to why The Department of Homeland Security has put an order in for 1.6 Billion rounds of ammunition.

This has been the plan from the beginning.

By doing so, they create an artificial shortage (Market Distortion) which does two things.

First, it creates a shortage of ammunition.
Second, it forces the price of ammunition higher which further limits the ability for individuals to afford it.

So why would they do this?

Because it’s always been about the bullets.

All of the “Gun Ban” hysteria has never been about the guns… it has always been about what you put in them.

Control the bullet… Control the gun.  (You have the Right to bear Arms, just not Bullets. Tee, hee, hee… the Liberals are always too clever by half.)

Those who dream of an unarmed populace see clearly that the average U.S. Citizen is not going to give up the their guns. So a “more reasonable approach” and “compromise” would be to put new legal limits on ammunition.  If you doubt me, take a look at the latest polls and the questions that have suddenly been appearing on them… someone thinks of the questions, right?  These are called “trial balloons“.

This 1.6 Billion round order is an attempt (a very succesful one) to slow down the acquisition of ammunition long enough for the Gun Control Folks to get you to see the light of a reasonable compromise. A Compromise consisting of new laws affecting ammunition… amounts, types, prices, registries, licenses to purchase etc.

It has already been pointed out that DHS can’t possibly use all 1.6 Billion rounds in our lifetime… short of an all out domestic conflict, and that would require the by-in of a great number of people who probably would not think it a very good idea.

The Progressives in this country are Shameless. And Dishonest. And Sinister. And in full knowledge of what they are doing.

(In my experience, the U.S. Government is notorious for suddenly cancelling orders. There is no recourse for the producer.  But if you’re an ammunition producer the very last client you want to make angry is the U.S. Government.  So you will do exactly as asked and begin reserving the amounts of ammunition requested… no question.)

So there’s your answer…

Now stop brewing up Black Helicopters and go stop these Socialists from getting the “newer, gentler gun control laws” they truly crave.

Controlling the ammunition is no compromise… it was the goal from the start.

Update: 040413 Or I could be wrong… from Breitbart – “The Great DHS Ammunition Stockpile Myth“.  But keep in mind… to create a market distortion does not require, in this case, an actual purchase by the Government.  All that is required is the release of these numbers combined with an already, and appropriately so, concerned populace with a Department that intentionally drags its feet in delivery logical and reasoned answers.  I will stand by my assertion that there is intent.  Tom Stilson and I might have to agree to disagree.


A Nation of Criminals

They’re Coming to Get Me.

They’re coming to get you too, but I don’t care so much about you… unless you can keep them from getting me.

OK, maybe they’re not coming right this second… but they want to be able to.

It appears our government’s standard operating procedure, at every level, is to make sure everybody is guilty of something… because they never know when that will come in handy.

First, you need a tax code nobody, I mean nobody, understands putting everyone in violation of it.

Second, you need a ton of laws that lay on the books unenforced so everyone forgets about them… until you want to use them.  These laws range from Zoning to Gun control.  And the best part is, when someone complains “there ought to be a law”, even though there is one you simply don’t remind them of it and craft some brand new ones that are even more onerous.  Brilliant!

In a world where your every business transaction is tracked (unless it is illegal… particularly if the BATFE is bank rolling it with your money as in Fast & Furious)… your location is always known through your cell phone, your car’s GPS system, electronically monitored power consumption at your home, your purchases on your credit cards and super computer’s dedicated to reading your e-mail and text messaging as they are sent… it is no surprise that there are many folks out there who don’t trust the Government, particularly those individual, fallible, self-interested human beings who run it.

As I have stated several times before, I believe your Freedom is directly correlated to your ability to live your life anonymously.

We just saw what can happen when the government keeps track of all those individuals holding concealed carry permits in New York.  It is my opinion the only people who should be upset about the disclosure of the names and addresses of these permit holders are those Liberals who support “Gun Control” for Others (read “stupid people” in other words “not them”).  The only casualty here will be their hypocrisy.  So much for being anonymous.

But the point here is that it was a political statement by the Newspaper.  There is no other reason.  Not a single mass shooting was committed by a permit holder.  Not one.  In fact, there have been several possible crimes stopped by permit holders as of late.  But, if you follow the Liberal logic those crimes should have been allowed to continue unabated for the 3-4 minutes it typically takes police to arrive.  If you don’t think that is a very long time try something… get a watch, and time yourself holding your breath for just 3 of those 4 minutes.  Start…. now.  I’ll wait.

That was fun huh?  It’s a long time… and a lot of very bad things can happen in that time.

So let’s all stop pretending that the Second Amendment was placed in the U.S. Bill of Rights to preserve your ability to hunt.  For you Liberals out there, go to Amazon and order yourself a copy of the Federalist Papers.  (You probably will not find it in your local Hippie Book Store as it was not written by Socialist “thinkers”.)  When it shows up, read it.  Yes… yes… I know you will not do this, but for the rest of us it further illustrates my point.  The answer is out there.

There is no mystery in the second amendment’s “meaning” requiring a bunch of poorly educated, hand wringing Ivy League diploma holders to decipher.  (By the way, now you can obtain a law degree, and subsequent law license, without ever taking a class in Constitutional Law.  That’s right… you can practice law without studying the document the law is based upon.  So when you’re listening to an absolute idiot with a law degree tell you that they don’t need you explaining what the Constitution and the Bill of Rights state because they have a law degree, as I did this very day, further explain to them that clearly you do or they wouldn’t be offering such idiotic opinion.)

These documents were written so everyone could understand them.  The only people who can’t seem to understand them are those who simply don’t like the inability to tell you what to do which is enshrined and preserved in those documents.  I recall a lament by President Obama to this effect when he explained how unfortunate it is that the U.S. Constitution is a “Limiting Document”… as it tells those holding office what they cannot do to the population versus what they can do to the population.  If you’re not asking why any office holder, at least one that we would want holding an office, would want to do things TO the population you’re missing the point entirely and leads me directly back to my discussion of the Second Amendment.  Don’t fool yourself, there are a ton of these types on both sides of the aisle… the power of Government attracts them like flies to decay.

The Second Amendment was placed into the Bill of Rights in order for the Citizens to defend themselves… wait for it… from threats foreign and domestic.  If you Leftists are still out there at this point, this is a government document.  A Document designed to LIMIT GOVERNMENT.  “Foreign” means threats to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” of the Individual from abroad (outside of the United States).  “Domestic” means threats to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” of the Individual from INSIDE the United States.  With the only institutionalized right to “force” being possessed by government at nearly every level, the founders were wise enough to know that an armed population would greatly inhibit really crappy politicians from oppressing you.

It sounds simple, because it is.

The Second Amendment is about the unfortunate and ultimate need to resist Tyrannical Government.  And never in history has there been a time when all those residing inside any nation on Earth have unanimously agreed to what qualifies as Tyranny.  There have always been about 30% of every population that is just fine with the subjugation of the others (read “Stupid People” or “not them”).  So don’t think that we are all going to nod our heads in unison regarding the time to resist having arrived.

But aside from the history lesson, what’s unnerving is our apparent consent to be made criminals so when those crappy politicians and their cronies show up they have the tools available to them to “legally” destroy those they disagree with.

If you’re not thinking about these things you should be.

If you’re in Colorado, put the bong down and think real hard about how you would feel if the Fed’s came knocking at your door right now.  While I think the argument regarding the second amendment is a little weightier than that, I’m just trying to relate.  I’m putting it in cartoon form… kind of like MSNBC.

Making sure everybody is “guilty of something” is a very old, and convenient, way of claiming legal authority to apply force to the population… while making sure the population acquiesces.

Not that I think any of the upstanding individuals in DC, or the local Capital near you, would do such things…  But judging by our current crop of politicians… the population who elected them is at a minimum, drunk.  And that same population is setting the stage to be proven stupid.
