There is no doubt that liberals do not like the Constitution which they view, as Obama said, as deeply flawed. They hate the Second Amendment and the fact that it protects the right to keep and bear arms, a right that preexisted the document. The Founders protected that right because they saw firsthand what a tyrannical government can do to people.
Liberals love to go after law abiding citizens when some lunatic uses a firearm illegally. The left is more than happy to punish the millions of people who did nothing wrong. Their idea on gun violence would be like solving drunk driving by banning sober people from buying cars. The big difference, of course, is that keeping and bearing a firearm is a right and driving is a privilege so even though banning sober people from owning cars is moronic, it would not be unconstitutional.
What government gives you government can take away. Government allows us the privilege of driving. The right to keep and bear arms is a God given RIGHT. Government cannot take away that which was given by God (absent a valid reason like committing a crime in which case one surrenders the right as a consequence of an action).
Obama has always hated firearms (except those used to protect him and his family). He has never wanted people to have them and has worked to get rid of them. Every time some nut uses a firearm to commit a crime Obama calls for common sense laws to prevent such things. No such laws exist and those laws enacted would only harm lawful owners. Obama seems unable to comprehend the fact that criminals do not obey the law. Obama should be aware of this because all the laws against drug use did not stop him and his Choom Gang from using drugs. Would tougher laws against drugs have prevented little Barry Obama from using pot and cocaine to get stoned with his buddies?
Liberals across the nation have trotted out laws to infringe on the right of law abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. In Missouri the Democrats have crafted a bill that would outlaw all firearms designated as assault weapons and all magazines designated as high capacity. People would have 90 days to surrender (render permanently inoperable or remove from the state) all such firearms or face criminal charges (another reason not to have a registry of firearm owners).
I would like to think this bill would not pass but in this day and age the Constitution means nothing to politicians, particularly the progressives/liberals, and government at all levels is becoming more tyrannical. I can only imagine that if this were to pass there would be many clashes between those who try to confiscate and those who say no.
The real danger is that this is an Overton Window. The liberals introduce this outlandish legislation and people revolt. Then they back off to what they really wanted and people say it is OK believing they averted a disaster. It is an incremental approach to banning firearms.
Say NO to this kind of stuff. There are no qualifiers in the Second Amendment that allows government to determine the size or type of firearm or magazine. There are laws that prohibit government from keeping a registry of firearm owners. As an aside, Democrats are willing to ignore those laws while expecting us to believe that criminals (private sector criminals, as opposed to those in government) will follow any law banning firearms, magazines or ammunition.
Many law enforcement officers across the nation are making it known they will not follow any law that infringes on the Second Amendment. This is for federal laws. We need such people strongly asserting that they will not follow state or local laws that infringe.
We, as a people, need to stand up and fight the tyranny. We have the soap box, the ballot box and the bullet box. What we choose depends on what government does.
Do you still think government will not deny your rights or confiscate your firearms? Do you think that it could not happen in America?
How would it have played out if those people were organized and fought back? How would it have played out if they were prepared and had in mind that government might confiscate firearms? How would it have ended if they had been ready before the police and NG organized?
The government is preparing. Are you ready and how will YOU respond?

An 82 year old woman with a 21 page rap sheet dating back to the 1950s has been arrested for burglary. Doris Thompson was arrested recently on suspicion of burglary involving a number of doctor’s offices. She allegedly hid in the offices until they closed for the evening and then stole cash. She was seen on several surveillance cameras.
Thompson, who has been in jail nine times and has at least 25 aliases, had an interesting reason for stealing what belonged to others. She said; “wouldn’t do all this nonsense if the government gave us more money.”
There it is ladies and gentlemen. If government gave her more money she would not have to steal it. Hell, I guess we can steal gasoline until the stations give us gas. Or perhaps we can all steal groceries because we would not have to if the grocers would just give us food.
This mindset is the result of progressive policies over the past century. These policies have broken up traditional families and fostered dependence on government. People who are dependent on government no longer have initiative to go out and earn. They no longer take responsibility for their actions and they expect to be taken care of by big daddy government.
We saw this during Katrina when large numbers of people were unable to accomplish the most basic things necessary to ensure they were safe. People were standing in knee deep water looking at land a mere 50 feet away and instead of moving toward dry land they looked around for help. They looked for help because the ability to help themselves has been removed from their minds by intrusive government and policies of dependence.
Thomson has been stealing from people for nearly 60 years and has gone to jail a number of times. She has not learned and after being caught this time she refuses to take responsibility for her actions. To her, it is the fault of government because it should give her more money.
Progressive polices suck the life out of people and as a result suck the life out of our nation.
People like Thompson are the followers of progressive politicians and their government will take care of you policies.
If Barack Obama had an auntie Doris she would look just like Ms. Thompson…

There is a terrible hurricane beating the hell out of New Orleans while Barack Obama is out holding campaign events. His FEMA is not on the ground and they are not in route. People are stranded and are being rescued by local responders in boats as 18 or more inches of rain causes flooding in the streets. Nearly 650,000 people are without power and Barack Obama has yet to go down there and turn the power back on.
Silly, you say? Definitely but isn’t this the kind of stuff we heard about Bush when Katrina hit seven years ago to the day?
George Bush was not doing anything. He hated black people. He was allowing them to die. FEMA was not on the ground and on and on.
The topper was that Bush caused the storm and blew up the levees to flood the place. Yes, some of the loony liberals actually said this.
Maybe we should blame Obama for bringing this hurricane to the mainland. We all know he did it to disrupt the Republican Convention. /sarc
The truth of the matter is that a hurricane is making its way across that region and there is not a lot anyone, even the great and powerful Ozbama, can do about it. If the people there were not prepared prior to landfall then they are going to be riding out a storm and getting help when it is able to arrive. The same doctrine that was in place during Katrina is in place now and that is the 72 hour YOYO. In other words, you’re on your own for about 72 hours while emergency responders and people from other agencies make their way in. They will arrive when it is possible AND SAFE to do so.
From all reports it looks like the folks in that region of Louisiana are better prepared than they were when Katrina hit. A Republican governor is in place and things are running smoother.
It is fairly ironic that a storm like this is hitting the same region that left an undeserved mark on George Bush (while leaving local Democrats unscathed). It is happening during Obama’s reign and while the place is being flooded he is out raising money for his reelection campaign.
I wonder how many of the Democrat media will take him to task for this…
I hope and pray the folks in that region are OK and that the storm does not cause the disruption that Katrina did.
I know that no matter what happens the media will make it appear as if Obama walked across the water to save those poor folks (though he would really only go there for campaign donations or to get a prime tee time). It just might be possible that this entire mess will give Obama the same opportunity Bush had.
The opportunity to get blasted for things that are not in his lane of responsibility (state issue), the opportunity to get blamed for any federal response that is deemed too slow regardless of the actual response and the opportunity to get painted with a broad brush that does not accurately reflect the situation.
I know I blame him for it all as a matter of fair play (Obama always wants a level playing field and equal outcomes). George Bush was accused of hating black people because of Katrina. I guess Isaac will prove the same about Obama.
You know what they say about karma…

Barack Obama’s regime denied federal assistance to the state of Texas which has been hammered with wildfires. A cynic would say that this is because Texas is a red state and Obama has no chance to win the large pool of electoral votes in the next election. Obama has however, gone to Texas to raise money for the political campaign and I bet there are plenty of liberals there who will give it to him. He will ignore their pleas for help but they will not ignore his.
To get to Texas Obama flew over the Mississippi River and the devastation that it has caused through middle America. The water is at record levels and places are flooded all over and various accounts report that Obama did not even look out the window to get a look at the damage. He was too busy thinking about what to say to Hispanics in Texas regarding amnesty so that he can get their cash now and their votes in 2012.
George Bush was hammered by the press and the liberals when he was photographed looking out the window of Air Force One at the damage from Hurricane Katrina. He was said to be uncaring and Kanye West said that he hated black people.
Obama is only concerned with power and how to hold onto it. His gig in the White House gets him the best tee times on cleared golf courses and free flights to all the hot vacation spots in the world. He needs to hold onto the power he has so he can continue to improve his golf game while working on transforming America into a Socialist country.
And don’t worry about missing anything. The government is working on a mandatory system that will allow it to text your cell phone in the event of an emergency. Of course, it will likely be a plan where those who pay for their cell phones continue to do so while the government uses their tax dollars to pay for phones for those who cannot afford them. It would not be fair, after all, for those poor folks not to get the same warnings as the people who pay for cell phones. Whatever happened to the Emergency Broadcast System?
At least the government will have a way to blast text messages to all of us from Dear Leader.
Wouldn’t want the masses to miss an Obama plea for campaign cash…

Barack Obama is taking a beating over the Gulf oil spill. He is facing the same accusations that Bush did when everything Katrina was blamed on him. I don’t think Barack Obama could have done anything to fix the problem any more than Bush could have done anything to fix Katrina. Bush mobilized FEMA and, all the politics aside, the federal response was challenging but not nearly as bad as depicted. The major problem is that few understand the role of FEMA and the federal government in these kinds of things.
Obama claims he was engaged from day one. I doubt this and there is little involvement right now. Katrina involved a state but the oil spill is already in federal territory. The feds could have ramped up immediately and quite a bit by now but booms still sit unused. Certainly BP is responsible for the spill and has the expertise to fix this, expertise the feds do not have. But Obama took responsibility. He told us that BP does not make a move without the government approving it. He said this was the case from the start.
The problem is that the appearance is Obama is not leading in this issue. The perception of Bush (painted by the Democrats) was that he was not engaged but the Lessons Learned from Katrina shows this not to be the case. It is all about perception and Obama does not appear to be leading, whether he is or not. The perception is that he is not in charge.
Obama has been beaten up over his engagement because it looks like he is not involved and that he is aloof. Perhaps this is because he lacks the executive experience to handle these kinds of emergencies. He has never led anything and he has never been in charge during an emergency and now his inexperience is showing.
So what is the cool Obama to do?
He loses it on TV and says he needs to know “whose ass to kick.”
I don’t sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar; we talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers — so I know whose ass to kick Yahoo News
Looks like Obama is getting his script from Spike Lee.
Exactly what is Obama going to do and exactly how will he kick any ass? How can he kick any ass when he has his boot on their throats? Will he kick his own ass for the failures of government?
Obama is expressing himself in a not so presidential manner because he knows that as each day passes he will lose more seats in Congress. Though he might benefit from losing Congress (look what a Republican Congress did for Bill Clinton), he certainly does not want to be the record holder for lost seats.
That is a distinct possibility because he is looking more like Jimmy Carter during the Iran Hostage Crisis and less like the Hope and Change dreamer people voted for.
Mr. Obama, I know you need to know whose ass to kick but many of us already have that answer. We are going to kick your party’s ass in the next election.
And by doing that we will also be kicking your sorry ass.
As an aside, imagine what it would have been like in the MSM had someone said that Obama needed to have his ass kicked. I bet they would have been howling like scalded dogs and someone might have been visited by the Secret Service.
Obama reminds me of the scene from My Cousin Vinny:
Vinny: Hey, Vincent LaGuardia Gambini–
Lisa: His name’s J.T.
Vinny: J.T., I believe you and Lisa played a game of pool for two hundred dollars, which she won; I’m here to collect.
J.T.: How ’bout if I just kick your ass?
Vinny: Oh, a counteroffer. That’s what we lawyers, I’m a lawyer, call that a counteroffer. Let me see, this is a tough decision you’re giving me here. Get my ass kicked or collect two hundred dollars. Hmm, let me think. I could use a good ass kicking, I’ll be very honest with you. Nah, I think I’ll just go with the two hundred. [more]
Yep, in November Obama is going to find out what an ass kicking really is.
Never surrender, never submit.
