Note To Libs: Muskets Were Weapons Of War

Liberal LogicEvery time there is a shooting in this country, that is every time some deranged liberal or Muslim terrorist shoots a bunch of people, there is always a cry to ban guns. The left wants to ban all firearms in this country regardless of what they say.

Make no mistake about that, they want to ban all firearms and all private ownership. They will do it incrementally but their end goal is a complete ban. If you listen to them you can hear them saying it. One only needs to hear them say we need what Australia has to know they want private ownership to end or be so difficult that no one has anything more powerful than a pea shooter.

The issue is not the gun, it is not the background checks, and it is not the availability of guns or the alleged ease with which a person can buy one (this ease all depends on where you live).

The firearm used was not an AR 15 though anti gun nuts keep calling it that and showing pictures of one when they appeal to the masses. They want control and nothing else.

Removing all guns will not end gun violence and the liberal model of Australia shows us that crime will actually rise as all other categories of crime did in that nation. Background checks exist and every time a person who bought a gun legally uses it to harm others liberals scream we need expanded background checks. What do they actually hope to find that government (the entity conducting the checks) does not already have access to? The government has failed in doing background checks when it fails to discover the future motives of people.

Sound ridiculous? That is what government wants you to believe it can accomplish with “expanded” background checks. It wants you to believe that it can tell what a person will do in the future if only we could look a little deeper.

The reality is most of the gun crimes committed are done by people with illegally purchased firearms and legal gun owners account for a small fraction of the murders.

It is also important to note that the government conducted a background check on the Islamic terrorist who shot up the gay night club and said he could own a gun. They said nothing in his background kept him from buying the firearm. If that is true then we just have a case of a person who had not done anything wrong deciding to do so. That happens all the time in our country though the case of legal firearms owners doing so is rare.

When these things happen we get this outcry of people who want more gun control as if restricting those who follow the law will stop those who don’t. It is more convenient to blame a gun than it is to blame the liberal moron, or in this case the Islamic terrorist, who pulled the trigger. Liberals would rather moan about one guy with a gun and claim him as the problem rather than seeing the issue was the 150 people who did not have a gun. Even if half of the club goers were carry permit holders they were banned from having their firearms in the club. Evidently the Muslim terrorist did not follow that law either.

Look, the reality is bad people do bad things and we can’t predict when they will but we can’t infringe on the rights of the law abiding as some feel good measure to make liberal bed-wetters think they are doing good. We also can’t allow liberal (and sadly some alleged conservative) politicians to take away our rights. Doing so will allow them to control us instead of us controlling them.

When they take away your means to resist they will then do as they wish, just ask some old German and Jewish folks about that.

The problem is not the firearm, it is the person using it illegally (and to some extent politicians who refuse to allow law abiding people to carry firearms). We do not ban cars or alcohol because people drink and drive. We don’t say that some person might drink and drive so he can’t own a car or buy alcohol. We don’t do these things even though more people die in alcohol related accidents than are murdered with firearms. In these cases we hold the driver responsible for his actions.

Blaming firearms for the shooting at the night club is like blaming the planes for 9/11.

I am also tired of hearing liberals tell us we don’t need these assault weapons or these weapons of war.

Alan Grayson, a moron politician and wife beater from Florida, claimed that these firearms could shoot 700 rounds a minute. A semi-automatic firearm’s rate of fire depends on how fast the shooter can squeeze the trigger. To shoot 700 rounds a minute the shooter would have to squeeze the trigger almost 12 times a second and that does not include the time to change magazines. Misinformed people are easy to control and government is doing the misinforming because it wants to control people. Though in this case it is likely Grayson, who is unintelligent, does not know.

First of all, there are no assault weapons. Assault is an action and people commit that action. They use many things to do so but whatever they use is not an assault item.

Second, all firearms can be weapons of war. In fact, the musket was a weapon of war and everyone had a musket. Obviously the Founders made no distinction and neither should we.

The important words are shall not be infringed. There is no qualifier, no sentence about weapons of war or only if you need or only if government says it is ok or anything else. The words are the right of the PEOPLE (all citizens) to keep and bear arms (to have and to carry) shall not be infringed.

Remember, the people telling you that you don’t need these firearms are surrounded and protected by people who have these firearms.

How many more Islamic terror attacks are we going to allow before Obama is held accountable?

The gun is not the problem. Anti-gun politicians, Muslim terrorists and bad people are the issue. But keep pushing for gun control and one day there will be pushback and you will not like it at all.

We will not comply.

The Plame Game

Remember back during the G W Bush Administration when some obscure CIA agent named Valerie Plame had her cover blown by Scooter Libby? Remember all the uproar from the left and the demands that Libby be frog marched in chains for disclosing the fact that Plame was a covert agent?

It matters little that the entire deal was a hit on Libby. It is known that Richard Armitage leaked the info and that the special prosecutor knew it but told him to remain silent about it. It is also true one could call the CIA and ask to be connected to Plame and they would ring you through.

But politics needed to be played and the left was all giddy as it dreamed of Libby in jail for disclosing the identity of a covert operative.

I wonder how these very liberals feel today knowing that Hillary Clinton’s home brew server set up put CIA agents at risk. I wonder if they care that the covers of these folks and the nature of operations might have been compromised as a result of Hillary’s decision to break the law and run a server at home all the while allowing classified information to run through it so prying eyes from around the world could hack into it.

Yes, Hillary might be responsible for this data leak as well but will the liberals hold her accountable? Will a special prosecutor be put into place to indict her on charges of disclosing the secret identities of spies in addition to the other crimes she has committed?

You know better. The left does not care about the law or this nation (unless the laws can be used to go after conservatives). It only cares about power and the toadies who support the left only care about getting “free” stuff.

Hillary could cut the head off a newborn baby and drink its blood and the left would still support her. This little wrinkle will not stop her because the left does not hold its own accountable.

Remember, to these people the ends justify the means so what Hillary did was A-OK.

It would be nice to see her frog marched out of DC and locked away for her crimes but not until Obama is out of office.

We don’t want him to pardon her…

Float Like A Butterfly Run Like A Coward

This week the world is mourning the death of Mohammad Ali (aka Cassius Clay) the former heavyweight boxer who converted to Islam and then refused to be conscripted during the Viet Nam War.

There are many stories about Ali being played over and over on the sports shows and there is no doubt the man was a great boxer and an entertaining person. He was also an advocate for several causes and he did a number of good deeds, as outlined in these stories, throughout his life.

All of this is well and good but he refused to serve his nation, the very nation that allowed him to enjoy success. He claimed to be a conscientious objector (but not until the standards were changed and he was eligible to be drafted – he was originally classified as too dumb) and that he would not violate his religious beliefs (anyone who sees Islam on a daily basis knows that fighting is right up their alley).

First off, there are plenty of jobs that CO’s can do in the military that will allow them to serve and remain true to their faith, if indeed their faith is at issue. Ali was first classified as not smart enough to serve but when the standards were lowered and he was inducted he chose not to participate at all, he disobeyed the law and he let better men than he go off and do the nation’s bidding while he stayed home and made money boxing.

Well, for a time anyway. The government would not let him box for a period of time because of his refusal.

The second point deals with the idea that he can’t go to war and fight people. He beat people up for a living. Boxing is not a peaceful sport and engaging in it causes harm (as evidenced by Ali in his later years) so claiming to be non-violent to avoid war rings kind of hollow. Then again, his objections were that he could not fight Christian wars or wars of unbelievers and could only fight a war declared by Allah or his messenger.

Ali was also quite the racist. Read some of his quotes from the time and it is easy to see. Hell, people call Trump a racist (Mexican is a nationality not a race) for remarks about one judge. Ali made remarks about whites in general or other black folks being used by the white man. Hell, look at what he said about Frazier…

Rocky Marciano was a heavyweight boxer in the 1950s. He served in WWII and boxed for the Army IN ADDITION to his regular Army job.

While many folks have changed their views on Ali and his draft dodging over the years I am not one of them. He turned his back on the nation and ignored the law.

For me that act defines him more than anything else he did.

Hillary Performed A Public Service

Hillary Clinton did the nation a service when she set up and used a home brew server for her email. She allowed classified information to slip through and she subverted government archiving procedures but in so doing she helped the nation because she got us all talking about the inadequacies of her process.

She got us talking about government officials who think they are above the law and she got us talking about using non-government systems to send and receive classified information. She got us (most of us anyway) to agree that doing so is not wise and puts the nation at risk.

Hillary should be indicted and face the music for what she has done but we should not forget that what she did caused us to engage in the conversation and that is important. Perhaps a judge can take that into consideration at her trial.

These are not my words, these are the words of former Attorney General Eric Holder.

He did not say them about Hillary, he said them about Edward Snowden.

Holder thinks Snowden did the nation a service by exposing how we are surveilled but that he broke the law in the way he did it and should come home to face the music for his actions.

We can certainly argue about the way in which Snowden did what he did, but I think that he actually performed a public service by raising the debate that we engaged in and by the changes that we made.

~snip

I think that he’s got to make a decision. He’s broken the law in my view. He needs to get lawyers, come on back, and decide, see what he wants to do: Go to trial, try to cut a deal. I think there has to be a consequence for what he has done. CNN

The things Holder said about Snowden are no less true for Hillary. She broke the law, she allowed classified information to spill, and she caused turmoil and endangered the nation.

In essence, Holder is saying that Hillary Clinton should be held accountable for breaking the law.

He just used Snowden’s situation as a proxy…

Bernie Supporters Get A Taste

Socialism has never worked. There is no denying this because everywhere it has been tried it has failed. One needs look no further than Venezuela to see a modern day collapse of a socialist system, the kind of system that Bernie Sanders wants in our country.

Bernie’s supporters don’t understand this. They believe that socialism has failed because no one has ever done it right and they believe Bernie is the guy who can do it the right way.

The reality is these people have no clue. They hear the words free stuff and they are all in (gimmiedats) and they really do not care that the “free” stuff they get has to be paid for by people who work and earn. The money they earn is confiscated by the government and redistributed. These people do not care until one day they are the earners being pilfered.

It is really strange they don’t understand this because they are seeing it and complaining about it every day. They are even getting aggressive over it.

What is it they see?

Bernie has run a pretty good campaign and has a string of wins in state primary elections. Hillary recently broke the string with a win in Kentucky but Bernie ran off an impressive string. Even though he did he earned very few delegates and Hillary, in some cases, got more than he did.

The Democrats have a system where they employ super delegates. These are party faithful and special folks who are not bound to vote for anyone. This system is in place to keep the people from actually selecting the Democrat candidate. The people get to vote and think they are making a difference but the super delegates get to make sure the pick is the person the establishment wants.

So what has happened is that Bernie is winning and he and Hillary are splitting delegates but the super delegates came out long ago in favor of Hillary so she is well ahead of Bernie and close to clinching despite all of Bernie’s hard work and despite Bernie winning a lot of states.

You see, Bernie and his supporters are victims of the socialist philosophy. He and his supporters work hard and earn delegates only to have the super delegates and thus victory go to Hillary.

He works for it and she gets it, just as it is in a socialist society.

His people will complain about the process but they are only victims of the very thing they want to impose on the rest of us.

Yeah baby, feel the burn…..
