French Border Closure: A Bit Late

Immediately following terrorist attacks in Paris, the French borders were closed.

Seems to be a bit late. 

When will America wake up and secure OUR borders?

How many tens of thousands of terrorists are already here sharpening their knives and arming their suicide vests?

Cicero - not just a Chicago suburb

Marcus Tullius Cicero
Consul of the Roman Republic

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within.

An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.

A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague."

How to Stop Violent Crime

Listen to this guy.
His pitch is short, sweet, and very simple.

There can be no question in the mind of any rational person that crime can be drastically reduced if the Obama Administration would aggressively prosecute and incarcerate violent criminals.
  • Why does the Justice Department not aggressively prosecute and incarcerate violent criminals, and why does the mass media persist in ignoring this gross dereliction of duty?

The NRA isn’t letting any grass grow under its feet when it comes to countering the Obama administration’s stepped-up anti-gun rhetoric these days. Good to see. Here are a few helpful statistics they’ve provided . . .

  • In 2010, federally-conducted NICS checks denied 72,659 transactions. As a result of NICS denials occurring in 2010, BATFE referred a total 62 charges against 33 individuals to federal prosecutors.
  • According to The Chicago Sun-Times, felons in Chicago who illegally possess a gun typically receive a four-year sentence – a penalty on the low end of the state sentencing guidelines. In addition to lax sentencing, most people convicted of these gun crimes serve less than half of their prison terms, allowing them to return to criminal behavior. About a third of people charged with simple gun possession and about half charged with being a felon in possession of a gun in 2012 were rearrested for another crime by the end of 2013. Those charged with simple gun possession had an average of four prior arrests,while those charged with gun possession by a felon had an average of 10 prior arrests. Police have made 12,967 arrests since 2000, yet city attorneys have won just 2,068 convictions.
  • Turning to the Chicago Police Department’s 2011 Chicago murder analysis, one might be surprised to learn that nearly nine in 10 murder suspects have criminal records. That’s right – 90 percent of the murders committed in Chicago involve a suspected perpetrator with a criminal history.
One of the components of the “commonsense gun control” Obama called on Congress to pass includes universal background checks. Illinois has UBC and is home to the most violent city in America. See below on Illinois gun laws:
You cannot own or purchase firearms or ammunition in Illinois without a Firearms Owner’s Identification Card (FOID). There is a 72 hour waiting for handguns and 24 hour waiting period for long guns.
FOID requirements include:
– 21 years old
– no felony conviction
– not a patient in a mental health facility within the last 5 years or for more than 5 years.
– US resident
– Illinois resident
– no orders of protection
– no battery, assault, aggravated assault, violation of an order of protection convictions in the last 5 years.
– not convicted of domestic battery, aggravated domestic battery, or a substantially similar offense (much more to this)
– not an alien with a non-immigration visa (also much more)
– had a juvenile conviction that would have been an adult felony.
– not adjudicated as mentally disabled.
– not involuntarily admitted to mental health facility.
– not developmentally disabled.
Law enforcement agrees that Obama’s gun control agenda is not the answer, according to an extensive survey released by The survey questioned 15,000 active and retired law enforcement officers of all ranks and from departments ranging in size from less than 25 to more than 1,000. The results strongly show that law enforcement officers do not support Obama’s gun control agenda.
“The American people, and particularly our men and women in law enforcement, want politicians in Washington to stop pursuing a failed gun control agenda. Instead, they should work to fix our broken mental health system and get violent criminals off the streets,” said the executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, Chris W. Cox.

Obama: It is common sense to disarm Americans. Allah Akbar!

U.S. President Barack Obama says the issue that has left him ‘the most stymied’ is the debate over gun control.  Obama recently said  that he is "frustrated that the U.S. is the one advanced nation on Earth that does not have commonsense gun safety laws, even in the face of repeated mass killings." Obama says that "while fewer than 100 Americans have been killed by terrorism since September 11, 2001, tens of thousands have been killed by gun violence.” In other words . . .

pay no attention to the jihadi behind that curtain!

Am I the only one who finds it worrying that the President of the United States reckons that gang banging with guns, firearms-related suicides and the occasional mass shooting are somehow more worrying than religious extremists dedicated to destroying our country? Does it bother anyone else that the President is so quick to put the horrific wholesale slaughter of 9/11 into the realm of ancient history when discussing the current threat of terrorism in the United States?

The President says:  
“the nation’s inability to resolve the issue of gun violence is 'distressing' but it is not something that I intend to stop working on in the remaining 18 months.”  

I’m so sorry that the President is “distressed” by his inability to disarm his fellow Americans, leaving them defenseless against both criminals and terrorists and (it should be mentioned) government tyranny. No doubt President Obama will “act out” his “distress” in the legislative arena, emboldened by any and every firearms-related atrocity committed by those with little to no regard for human life.

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one."
- Thomas Jefferson

Mr. Sulu: Set your phasers to dumbass

Better yet, set those ray guns to full-tilt racist retard.

George Takei said that Clarence Thomas
"does not belong on the Supreme Court. He is an embarrassment. He is a disgrace to America”.

Oh My!

This is what Justice Thomas said to set curious George off course:

Human dignity has long been understood in this country to be innate. When the Framers proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence that “all men are created equal” and “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,” they referred to a vision of mankind in which all humans are created in the image of God and therefore of inherent worth. That vision is the foundation upon which this Nation was built.
The corollary of that principle is that human dignity cannot be taken away by the government. Slaves did not lose their dignity (any more than they lost their humanity) because the government allowed them to be enslaved. Those held in internment camps did not lose their dignity because the government confined them. And those denied governmental benefits certainly do not lose their dignity because the government denies them those benefits. The government cannot bestow dignity, and it cannot take it away.

Looks to me like George has forsaken what little may have been left of his own dignity.  He threw it away himself.  It was not taken from him.

Jeez!  Beam this loon up Scotty!

1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.
2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.
3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.
4. Their representatives run the government - yet the "poor" keep getting poorer.
5. The "poor" keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
6. The "poor" have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.
Think about it!  Makes you wonder who is doing the math.
These next three items tell a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:
1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Islamists by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.
 Funny how that works.
2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. But we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money. What's interesting is the first group worked for their benefits, but the second didn't.
 Think about it.  And last, but not least:
 3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens?
Am I the only one missing something?

Burgers, Bureaucrats, and Buttwipe

So, we were having a delicious gourmet luncheon at the Cheney Zips a while back - their Bacon Cheddar Burger Combo with Tater Tots is our favorite.

Anyway, when going for a napkin to sop up some of that oozing goodness, out popped a brand-new dollar bill!

It appears that the rate of inflation is approaching the point where the value of US currency is being eclipsed by paper wiping products.

Don't be shocked - this happened to elected officials in Washington DC quite some time ago.
