Beau Biden, the son of VP Joe Biden and the attorney general of Delaware, is at a hospital in Texas known as a leading center for the treatment of cancer. There is no indication that Biden has cancer as news reports indicate he is being evaluated.
Biden, who had a stroke in 2010, suffered a bout of weakness and disorientation on 14 August after driving to Indiana for a family vacation. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago and then went to a hospital in Philadelphia to see his doctor. He is now at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
Beau Biden is now being evaluated to determine what caused his weakness and disorientation. There is no indication as to why he is at a premier cancer center though that is sure to fuel speculation.
I wish him well and will keep him in my prayers. I do not agree with him or his family politically but he is a human being and seems like a fairly decent guy outside the political arena. He is someone’s father, husband and son and it is a stressful time for all of them as they wait to see if a cause for his illness can be found.
I wish him well.

The federal government and a number of states with liberals in charge are working very hard to infringe on the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Yesterday Senator Feinstein introduced a bill that would ban 150 firearms because they look scary and would limit the number of rounds a magazine can hold to 10. That ten round limit is, in effect, a ban of certain types of firearms because the smallest magazine for them holds more then 10.
Joe Biden, the drunkard VP, is in charge of the gun ban effort and he has come out to make it very clear that this is not about gun control, it is about safety.
He also made it clear that the proposals of the Obama regime will not end gun crime but could make a difference.
The vice president fielded questions online in a Google+ Hangout, saying the proposals that he and President Barack Obama have laid out won’t end gun crime, but they still could make a difference. WSJ
It has long been recognized that these kinds of laws will not work and Biden is basically acknowledging that fact. So if what they are doing won’t end gun violence and at best, COULD, still make a difference then how is it about safety? If it does not make it better (which it won’t) then it can’t be about safety because no one will be safer. If it is therefore not about safety it must be about gun control.
Gun control is not about guns but about control so the overarching theme is that the Obama regime wants more control over people.
Basically what Biden is telling us is they want to infringe upon our rights for the possibility of safety (though he admits we won’t be safer). Should we as a people give up our rights for safety?
Ben Franklin, a man much wiser than any in politics now, said it very well:
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
The right to keep and bear arms is an essential liberty and it is a liberty the Obama regime (and minions across the nation) is trying to take from us for a promise of safety (safety that COULD happen). If we give up our liberty for this alleged safety we will deserve neither.
And we will get neither. We will no longer have the right and we will not be safe from the most dangerous threat to our existence.
What are your thoughts on the proposed gun ban?

No, not a gun show which would likely be sold out with long lines. Joe Biden was put in charge of solving the gun violence crisis and he has been meeting with groups that favor some kind of restrictive gun control on the gun owners who have done absolutely NOTHING wrong. <a href="Biden will now meet with representatives of the National Rifle Association (NRA).
Make no mistake; the die has already been cast. Biden knows exactly what he will present to Obama because he was given the mandate along with the assignment. The meetings, particularly with the NRA, are designed to give the appearance that the Obama regime considered all options and opinions. They want to push through their unconstitutional gun grab while telling everyone they talked to a lot of groups, for and against, and this is what they wanted.
Biden, who once famously said that Barack had better not come for his Beretta in an effort to give weight to then candidate Obama’s claims that he would NOT come after your guns, is now working fast and furiously to take our guns away.
For you liberals and other Obama supporters, this means they both lied. Obama assured people that he would not try to take their firearms and Biden told us we could trust the guy. Now they are doing what they said they would not and this makes it a lie.
The people from the NRA will be able to present a very detailed account of what the Constitution says and what the Founders said about individuals keeping and bearing arms. They need to do this because Obama, Biden, and the rest of the gun grabbers have no clue or are deliberately ignoring the Constitution. Regardless, this will fall on deaf ears because Biden already has his marching orders and he thinks he is the smartest man alive (he is a moron).
It matters not what Obama and Biden come up with because it is unlikely any proposed legislation would make it very far in Congress. Besides, no matter what they pass real Americans will ignore any gun grab and will find other ways to arm themselves because gun laws do not keep people from getting guns. No law stops people who have decided not to follow it.
Case in point, by law Congress must pass a budget every year. The House has passed one every year but the Senate has not. It has been more than 1300 days since a budget was passed. This is by design because the first Obama budget was bloated and provided the baseline for all continuing resolutions, should a budget not get passed. In any event, the fact that there is a law that requires a budget has not forced Harry Reid, a Senator who has sworn to uphold the law, to pass one.
No gun law will keep people from getting guns. This has been the case all along as there are over 20,000 gun laws in this nation yet criminals keep getting guns illegally and using them to commit crime. Hell, it is against the law to murder people with or without a gun.
The only thing Obama will do if he passes any kind of gun control is make a whole lot of new “criminals” whose only crime will be to have followed the Constitution.
People will not be disarmed no matter what Piers Morgan, Barack Obama, Joe Biden or any other lying statist does or says. We will not give up our God given right to keep and bear arms.
In other words, if you want them Molon labe, if you are feeling froggy that is…
Never surrender, never submit.

King Putt’s vice President and court jester Joe Biden recently took a swipe at GOP VP candidate Paul Ryan by invoking the wise words of his late father. Biden always tells people what the wise words of his father were as if Joe actually lives by them (or as if his father actually said them). Here is what Jester Joe had to say:
“…But my dad [had] a lot of wisdom. Every time someone tell you, say, ‘Look, let me tell you what’s important to me, what I value.’ My dad would go, ‘No, no. Don’t tell me what you value. Show me your budget, and I will tell you what you value.’” Weekly Standard
I am sure that Biden’s father was talking about people and their personal budgets but Joe made it sound as if ole daddy B was discussing any budget and the assumption is that Ryan has budget ideas that show values contrary to American values. Since Jester Joe decided to apply his pappy’s words to the federal budget I have to wonder if Joe is aware that the Democrat controlled Senate, which Joe is the president of, has not passed a budget in over three years.
If Joe wants us to believe that his daddy said he could tell what someone valued by looking at the budget what do you suppose daddy B would be able to tell about a group of people who passed NO budget?
I also wonder if his daddy would be proud of the fact that Joe is the president of the Senate (OK, he only has one real function there) and that he did not bother to push the Democrats to pass a budget. I would say that it shows the Democrats do not value using a budget or living within its means. I would say that it shows that Democrats value obstruction and cheating taxpayers out of money by not putting in place a mechanism to allocate that money appropriately. I know that it matters little because they do not have to balance anything and they spend as they want regardless of a budget BUT Joe said we could tell a lot about what people value by their budget.
If we accept this as true then we see a lot of things the Democrat controlled Senate values that are contrary to American principles.
To take it a step further, Jester Joe and his wife have donated about 1% of their income to charity while Mitt Romney and his wife have donated about 16% of their income to charity. It would appear as if Joe does not value charity.
That is, of course, unless he is being charitable with someone else’s money. Joe loves spending on social programs to help the folks out but only so long as he is spending money that is not his own.
He really does not value helping others when it comes to his own money
Liberals love to spend everyone else’s money and Joe is no exception to the rule.
I also wonder what his daddy would have said about plagiarism but that is something to save for another day.
Remember this folks when you hear the Democrats call Romney a greedy rich guy…

The news began to leak out last last evening and early this morning it was confirmed that Mitt Romney had selected Paul Ryan to be his running mate in the upcoming save America election. Ryan has some baggage with regard to his conservative credentials but he is fairly solid and brings a lot to the table. Despite a few issues he will bring a lot of conservatives back into the tent.
Ryan and Obama are not quite pals and it is probably still fresh in Obama’s mind that Ryan eviscerated him during the discussion over Obamacare.
Ryan has worked up a budget and it contains some tough cuts to popular programs but those cuts are needed. Liberals portray it as an end to Medicare and Social Security but that is a stretch. In fact, coming from Democrats you know it is a lie.
I think Ryan will do a fine job. He has a sound business mind and a great grasp of economics not to mention he has far more business and government experience than Obama had when the country immaculated him. I know Ryan is not running against Obama but the claim from the left in 2008 (and some on the right) was that Palin did not have the experience to step in should McCain not be able to complete his term (which it looks like he would have). Palin had more experience than Obama so I expect to see the ads claiming Ryan is not ready to step in. In fact, there is already one article making that claim. It is a bunch of bunk (where was this person when Obama was running) so I expect more to come.
The Twitter world was ablaze with condemnation from the left and there were wishes that Ryan would die young like his father and grandfather (even if that happened he would have been out of office for 5 years assuming two terms). Kos pointed out that Ryan is white. I wonder why it is that the people who claim they are the champions of minorities and non racist are always the first to notice color.
Ryan is white, OK. So is Joe Biden but no one screamed about that. So was Al Gore but then again Bill Clinton was our first black president so I guess that was OK.
I guess Kos wanted people to think of Republicans as the party of the white guy but that falls short. The left is full of racists who will play the color game at every opportunity. Even black folks on the left play it. Allen West was portrayed in an ad with every stereotype of a black man you could think of and the NAACP reviewed it and claimed it was not racist. If that had been a conservative ad with Obama being stereotyped the NAACP would have lost its mind.
But I digress.
Democrats are playing games and attacking Ryan but they would be wise to worry. He is no pushover and I think he will wipe the floor with Biden when they debate.
The field is now set for the election and this will be brutal. Obama promised that he would not use attack ads and that he was a different kind of politician. We know that is a lie and we know he will use Chicago thuggery and do everything he can to win.
Obama needs four more years to complete his dismantling of the country. He needs more time to see the dreams of his real father fulfilled. He needs time to help George Soros destroy this great nation. Obama, as he said to the Russians, will have more flexibility if he gets a second term. He will finish the destruction that he started in 2009.
Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are determined to keep that from happening. The left is vile and the attacks will be vicious but that will not stop us from achieving victory.
It is November or never for America and Romney and Ryan know that as do all sane people.
We will stop Obama and the Socialists from ruining this nation.
Energy is on our side, now we need to be vigilant because the Dems are going to cheat.
Not on my watch people, not on my watch.
Never surrender, never submit.
