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!

Conundrums

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.

It is foolish to mourn . . .

When Seconds Count, Baltimore Cops Provide "Room to Destroy"

Baltimore is the largest city in Maryland.

Maryland's nickname is "The Free State".


Seems like the Mayor of Baltimore thinks that means freedom to: burn, baby, burn.


When the Mayor of Baltimore told a justifiably panicked public that she was giving “protesters” “room to destroy” she was speaking truth to powerlessness. Once again, the Mayor of a city abandoned law-abiding citizens to rampant criminality. Once again, peaceable people in an economically-challenged, ethnically-segregated section of a major metropolitan area were on their own, denied direct police intervention, powerless to stop wanton destruction and unprovoked personal attacks. People who could not take the law into their own hands – a regrettable but necessary state of affairs – because they’d been denied the tools to do so. But first, the police . . .

Pro-gun people like to point out the limits of the police’s “thin blue line” with a simple expression: “when seconds count, the police are only minutes away.” In this case, at the sharp end, the Baltimore police were hours if not days if not permanently away. And where the cops were on scene, they gave rioters “room to destroy.” Looting, burning, attacking random people and property – the cops were too busy maintaining a shoulder-to-shoulder cordon on major streets to directly engage and arrest the thugs tearing the town apart.

This is no small point. Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rowlings-Blake had instructed the police to contain the rioting, rather than combat it. Containment served her political needs. It signaled the world that she “understood” the “protesters'” anger at the police incident that “sparked the rage.” It prevented incidents that could lead to accusations of “police brutality” that might make the rioting worse. At the same time, containment prevented the violence, destruction and theft from spilling-out into the city’s more affluent areas, where the real money (a.k.a., political power) resides.

One could point out that these areas have a higher percentage of caucasian residents and accuse the Mayor of racism but I couldn’t possibly comment. But I will say this: when push comes to shove, at that very moment, police and politics has nothing to do with it. It’s a simple matter of self-protection. They attack, you defend. Your life, your property, your loved ones, your community. You do it because no one else will. No one else can. At that point, you want the best possible tool for self-defense. You want a gun. On your person.

Maryland is what’s called a “may issue” state. Free State residents must prove their need for a concealed carry firearm to government regulators. Securing Maryland’s permission to carry a concealed firearm is an expensive, time-consuming, bureaucratic process, prone to delay. And failure. According to abc2news.com , just 2,095 people applied for a Maryland concealed carry license in 2014. Some 227 were denied. “Of that 227, 189 were denied under Maryland State Police code 0060: ‘Lacks good and substantial reason.'” So, what about this?


Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency in the city and activated the National Guard to assist city and state police, calling it a “last resort” to restore order.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake called the rioters “thugs” and said the city was imposing a 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew starting Tuesday. She said she asked Hogan to send in the Guard.

“We are deploying every resource possible to gain control of the situation and ensure peace moving forward,” she said.

Does that constitute a “good and substantial reason” for carrying a concealed firearm? Even if it does, Baltimore residents can’t apply for a concealed carry permit today and get one, say, tomorrow. So if thugs roaming the streets is a “good and substantial reason” for being “allowed” to carry a gun, the government needs to give residents a license before the rioting starts. (You know; again.) Raise your hand if you think the state would consider “I want to be armed against rioters” “a good and substantial reason” for carrying a firearm.

And yet it damn well is, isn’t it? Perhaps not as good and substantial as “I have a natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms subject neither to the democratic process nor questions of social utility,” but perfectly rational nonetheless. As is the idea that the police should maintain law and order when it disintegrates. Before it disintegrates? How do you do that? Now there’s a question.

“In the days ahead, I intend to work with leaders throughout Baltimore to ensure that we can protect the security and civil rights of all residents,” Lynch said. “And I will bring the full resources of the Department of Justice to bear in protecting those under threat, investigating wrongdoing, and securing an end to violence.”

Are law-abiding Baltimore residents reassured by this paternalistic promise? Maybe. But not as reassured, not as protected, as they would be with a firearm.
