Driving home today I listened to the Jason Lewis radio show.  I usually listen to the local classical station but “All Things Considered” was on and I don’t listen to that…….it offends me. Why? Because “all things” are not considered, if they were the people who report the “news” and their listeners would have to actually think about their hypocrisy, their blanket intolerance and their unwillingness to accept that reality is NOT rainbows, moonbeams and unicorns (doing what they do naturally-If you been here before you know about my apparent fixation with unicorn dung….. which is very good manure if you’re going to plant magic beans for a bean stalk but not so good for grown an economy).

Mr Lewis was reporting on the latest round of Tyranny in the  US.  Seems that someone is offended by Volkswagon’s new super-bowl commercial where a white guy from Michigan channels a Jamaican bobbsledder encouraging people to “drive happy”.  Apparently a white guy pretending to be a black guy is just like blackface, but a black guy pretending to be a white guy (see Eddie Murphy in Trading Places) is flat out hysterical .  Oh and apparently Taco Bells in trouble too for making fun of vegetables.  I wonder if vegetables have a political action committee or union to mount the protests and speak for them?

All of this got me to thinking, pondering actually, about the right not to be offended.  Funny thing, in the 45 credit hours of upper division history classes I had to take for my degree I don’t remember anything in the Constitution or Declaration of Independence, the Magna Carta or the Hammurabi Code, the Hyppocratic oath or the Bible that declared that one had the right not be offended.  While we are encouraged not to deal unkindly with others there is no law or commandment that prevents offense.  How could that be enforced? What one man finds offensive is simply comedy or drama to someone else.

So this got be to thinking about the things that offend me.  (Now I’m sure someone is going to offended by this list but truthfully with all the things I have to be tolerant about I’ve got to say that I simply don’t care if you’re offended.)  I didn’t make you come here you can leave anytime and not come back ever.  That children is the glory of choice, freedom and liberty, something some people in this country can’t seem to wrap their minds around.

Now, what really does offend me.  It’s an extensive list so I’ll just hit the high points.

Tyranny:  This offends me in any way, shape, color or form.  Blanket intolerance, parental over reach, busy bodies, government power grabs, spousal abuse(physical and mental), liberal litmus tests, the rewriting of history to include 21st century sensibilities are just the tip of this iceberg.

Hypocrisy: While all of us have some hypocrisy the over the top attitudes of those in the “adventure movie/dramas” genre who had the gall to decry violence in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting make be want to retch.  How dare they scold legal gun owners who use their weapons for hunting and protection while they and their “peeps” waste thousands of rounds of ammunition just to “get the shot” and even then they don’t get it right.  People whose constant mantra of ” it’s for the children or we have to protect the children” also offend me because without a doubt they are the same people pushing for greater access to abortion and contraception for younger and younger children,  gay marriage and adoption, after all nothing shows how to be a good man like two mommies.  Then there are the TV shows and movies that heap carnage all over the world. I guess they expect only the well adjusted to come to their slasher films.  If that were the case most of Hollyweird would be empty and TV would physically become the vast wasteland that they actually are intellectually, morally and emotionally.

Immorality:  I am tired of seeing on TV (before I can switch channel) in the movies (and trailers for movies) I wouldn’t want my worst enemy to see and in books ( Gray apparently being the color of pornography) half naked women/men prancing around pretending that sex is just a physical response, much like sneezing or coughing.  I’m tired of being assaulted by sexual innuendo, awful writing and poor stories.  I’m tired of their being no one in said media that one could consider a hero or the good guy. In the rush to promote equality, we have lowered the bar so that we are all mediocre. Mendacity.

Filthy language: Guess what my God had nothing to do with whatever you just said “Oh God” about. He is not going to damn someone just because you said so.  Also don’t use F*^as a punctuation mark, it makes you sound stupid and childish  if you’re a man or woman, and cheap and uneducated if you’re a woman. Guess what,  I try very hard to never say that word and the other foul and disgusting curse words that I hear everyday so hearing it is OFFENSIVE.  Also do not tell me the personal specifics of you’re reproductive operations.  I really don’t want to hear about your abortion, sterilization or hysterectomy or prostate exam.  I also don’ t want to hear (in the vegetable aisle at WalMart ) about you’re latest one night stand or you’re cheating heart.

Stupidity offends me. Not ignorance mind you, stupidity.  Sometimes you just don’t know something, which can be fixed.  The idea of doing something patently stupid to get back at someone is asinine in the extreme.  Cigarettes will kill you, that’s not opinion, that’s fact.  Maybe not tomorrow, but sooner or later.  Guns don’t jump off the table and hurt people and people who have no real experience should not be hired to run anything especially not a country and you don’t pick a running mate based on whether or not he’s expendable .  Presidential insurance.  So sad.

Public officials who lie to me offend me.  Don’t bother to lie, just tell me what I need to know and don’t try to take away my rights as a citizen and as a child of God.  I’m offended by men who walk around like they have a load in their britches.  For Pete’s sake grow up and pull  up your pants, and young women you aren’t off the hook either. As my mom used to say ” What street corner are you going for?” Stop dressing like a hooker and maybe someone will take you seriously.

Feminists offend me.  I lay the destruction of our civilization at the door of rabid feminists. They lied to women by telling them that being a wife and mother wasn’t enriching enough, wasn’t good enough, wasn’t challenging enough.  They also claimed women could “have it all”.   Guess what there is NO job as challenging as being a mother, not one. Selfless service, thankless jobs, horrible hours and NO actual pay doesn’t sound like any job I’d like to take but the benefits are eternal and the experience is celestial.  The idea perpetrated by feminists that women and men are the same boggles the mind. For people who are supposedly so brilliant their stupidity is almost criminal.  Men and women are NOT the same, physically, emotionally or intellectually. Saying women and men are the same is like saying a lion has four paws, fur and teeth, and so does a meerkat they must be the same. I dare say the meerkat wouldn’t consider himself the same as the lion or vise versa.  Should women have choices and opportunities, absolutely, as long as they can do the job. As the mother of daughters I would like them to have the opportunity to do whatever it is they are capable of doing.  Capable being the operative word.

I am offended by a lot things. As I said this is just the tip of the iceberg. It seems to me that if I have to be tolerant of everyone else’s foibles they should either have to be tolerant to mine or stop being offensive.

Yeah and coming soon, pigs will fly (first class).

Today on a local radio show the commentator (a personal friend) was describing his run in with one of our Representatives (US House).  This man is a second term Congressman and was bemoaning the fact that Conservatives think he should be able to change how Washington works “right now”.  He complained that people just didn’t understand the pressure, the amount of data, the complexities of the issues.  After all he told my friend, he’s only one person and they (the Congress ) are just trying to do their best for the whole country.

This got me thinking.  What do I expect of my elected representatives?  The ones that I voted for and the ones that I didn’t.  I’ve thought about it all day.  It’s cast a real pall over my whole day because I don’t believe I’m asking for a lot.  I’m not expecting people agree with me, pander to me and go about making my life a field full of sun shine, lollypops and rainbow crapping unicorns.  This applies not just to the gentleman that inspired my pondering but all those who “serve” at the publics pleasure.

So what do I expect:

1. Them not to lie to me.  If I didn’t vote for them I’m not going to be happy with most of the things they’ll want to do.  I didn’t vote for them because of their policies not their personalities or lack there of. I don’t even vote for or against people because of their color or ethnicity.  I vote FOR people not against someone else.  Contrary to black america skin color is not on my list of prerequisites for a job in government.

2. Do what you say your going to do. If you say you’re for term limits, get out after two terms.  If you say you’re against illegal immigration fight for tougher laws and securing the border.  If you think we live in a country that follows the rule of law stand up against the Justice Department and it’s universal disregard for the truth, for facts, for reality.  If you promised to uphold the constitution then do so.  All of it, including the 1st and 2nd amendments.  If you think gun rights are important than fight for them. But by all that’s holy do not tell me one thing and do the other and then have the audacity to patronize me and tell me I don’t know how hard it is to be you.  You don’t know how hard it is to be me either.  So we’re even.

3. I expect my elected officials to LISTEN TO ME.  Not agree but listen. I expect you to live HERE, where you’re elected from. I expect you to spend you’re free time HERE in your district.  I also expect you to go to Washington and then come back here to your home town and get a job.  I expect you to tell the government to take their golden parachute and retirement and put that money back into social security or the military or somewhere else where it’s really needed.

4. I expect you my elected official to fight all foes foreign and domestic up to and including the president of these United States. If someone is a threat to the Constitution, the country and it’s citizens I expect you to Cowboy up and stand your ground.  For pity sake stand for something.  God, Mom, Apple Pie…………there must be something you won’t give up.  I expect you to tell me the honest truth, even if I won’t like it, at the same time if you’ve lied or obfuscated in the past I’m not going to believe you.  Don’t insult my intelligence by making soundbites that you think I’ll love so you can cheat on me behind my back.  I don’t tolerate that in my personal life and I love my family, I won’t tolerate it from you either.

Most of all I expect you to play by the same rules I have to live by.  Balance the government check book, pay your bills, live within your means and for pity’s sake keep your hands and other appendages to yourselves.

Thank you.

I’ve done this before. There are just too many juicy things to write about that I can’t decide which one to focus on so I’m going to spotlight a couple of the most interesting, unbelievable and downright outrageous.

‘I GO SHOOTING ALL THE TIME’  I don’t believe this.  He may shoot his mouth off, he may shoot the messenger, he may shoot pool but this man has never shot a gun in his life unless it was at a photo opt.  He’d wet his pants if he had to actually use a weapon to protect himself.  The lies just get bigger and bigger and more unbelievable.

Government Officials Can Still Own Assault Weapons Under Feinstein Bill… Somebody tell me this is a surprise.  We peons don’t need to be protected that’s what the government is for.  Why have a gun when you can wait 20 minutes for the police to arrive at the school with a gunman inside?  Seriously the 2nd amendment is for our protection from a government run amuck, not hunting.

O blames FOXNEWS and Limbaugh… This guys been in power for 4 years, 2 of them with a demoncratic  majority in both the House and Senate and hasn’t passed a budget in 4 years.  Fox News and Rush Limbaugh are more powerful than the United States government? If that was the case sir, you’d have been out of office in November and on your way back to your homeland (Kenya) where you belong.

LAND OF LINCOLN downgraded… Rated ‘worst’ state in country…  Anyone surprised here? Chicago had the strictest gun control laws in the country and the highest murder rate at 523 murders last year alone.  What with the mob, the welfare queens, food stamp thieves and general moonbattery I’m surprised they manage hang on to any kind of existence at all.

CBSNEWS Runs Segment: ‘Let’s Give Up On The Constitution’…  It’s way passed time to encourage all those journalists to move on to a new country.  They don’t like it here maybe they should move to I don’t know Iran perhaps( Journalists arrested in raids on newspapers…) It sounds like the perfect place for them.

Wave of violence as Compton changes… Latino gang intimidating blacks into leaving… Gee now that it’s happening to the black community we should swoop in and do something?  My parents experienced the same kind of thing in Baltimore in the 1950’s. I guess back them it just wasn’t that big a deal, oh right they weren’t hispanic or black so I guess it didn’t happen.

NYT: Biggest Carbon Sin is ‘Air Travel’… Good let’s ban air travel.  Obama, politicians, movie stars, jet setters all have to stay home or drive by car.  No more travel to Europe except by boat and only those with sails.  Should keep the propaganda purveyors from spewing their vomitis fantasies throughout the world and keep them  closer to where they have to live.  I like it.

A NEW REPUBLIC… Sorry we like our old republic Senator Palpatine. Sorry I forgot Emperor.  Go somewhere else and start your empire and take your droids with  you.

Man threatens Liberty Bell… I guess he threatened to blow it up with explosives he didn’t have.  Of course he might have broken it…..wait a minute………… it’s already broken. Never mind.

Pledges Crackdown on ‘Irresponsible Behavior’… So obama’s going to resign?  Oh he meant other peoples irresponsible behavior not the behavior that has kept the economy from growing or people from getting jobs or important things like that.  No he meant behavior by a insignificant number of, dare I say unbalanced people.  Maybe he should focus on ways for people to get help with their emotional problems instead of giving them an aspirin and sending them home as they plan to do on Obama care. As the country slides into decline we will see more of this and we can lay all of that at the door of the progressive, narcissistic, incompetent nimrod in the White House and the coven of sycophants he has surrounded himself with.

It’s late and I’ve had my fun. Hope it was fun you y’all as well.

…..(add the name of your liberal of choice here).

I have seen a lot of hypocrisy in my life.  I’m been hypocritical a few times in the past, OK more than a few times. No one escapes the clutches of hypocrisy, no matter how good, no matter how kind, no matter how they guard against it.  It is part and parcel of the human condition.

That said this really does take the cake.  It’s makes all hypocrisies pale in comparison.

Feinstein Opens Gun Control Presser with Prayer by Clergyman

Yes, Diane Feinstein Democrat extraordinaire from the fruit bowl of the West, San Francisco (by the bay) began a press conference with a word of prayer.  Of course she found the most liberal preacher she could find to do so, but still a prayer.  A Prayer?  Really?  This is a woman who never met a religious person she didn’t disagree with.  Her causes stretch from gay marriage to no prayer at any event ever in schools to abortion on demand up until the babies head leaves the birth canal.

This woman condones asking God to sort out our problems.  She has turned this issue over to  the Almighty and she really thinks that all she  has to do is knock on the door and God is just going to melt into a little puddle and throw open the windows of heaven because she finally deigns to acknowledge him. After years of ignoring, denying and impeding God, she now wants him to do her bidding.  She is flat out amazing.  The hubris, the gall, the out and out  chutzpah she embodies is almost unbelievable.  When she decides religion is appropriate than “Katie bar the door” as it were.

What  happened to not offending others? What happened to inclusion, political correctness and sensitivity? Pragmatism that’s what. Her advisors, her handlers the people who call the shots finally got it through to her.  The people on the other side of the gun control debate have had to acknowledge that 38 million hunters (yes that’s right million with a large M) plus all the other legal gun owners, you know the ones who don’t hunt, who have weapons for protection from things like a government run amuck. They plus the hunters number somewhere around 80 million (yes again big M) when you add them all together and that could be a real problem for the anti gun activists and lobbyists.  They aren’t simply going to stand by and let government “take” “confiscate” or “infringe” on the 2nd amendment.

No, now it’s time to break up the conservatives again.  It’s time to turn them against each other. They’ve done it before and they aren’t afraid to do it again.  After all it worked so well in that last two presidential elections. It’s time to pit the religious against the religious and what better issue to focus on than guns.  Not everyone likes them, not everyone understands the importance of keeping the few rights we have left.  Most people don’t know or refuse to accept that Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Castro and most other dictators began their reigns of terror by taking guns away from citizens. It is right out of the Alinsky play book.  Learning from history is like sunlight to vampires, for liberals.  They can’t believe they’re not the smartest person in the group.  They refuse to accept that they don’t know everything and they refuse to accept the unintended consequences from their policies, no matter what the outcomes. It’s all rainbows and unicorns except they can’t see the excrement anywhere and they refuse to believe their shoes are covered in dung.

It’s time to retire Ms. Feinsein and her ilk.  She a partisan politician who is interested in nothing except feathering her own nest.  We need to get rid of  her and her companions on both sides of the isle.  If she can’t look out for the good of t he country she needs to be gone.  If she refuses to stand for her own beliefs it would be better that she sat on some board somewhere, where she wouldn’t do any harm.  If she wants to be a hypocrite let her do so on her own dime/ time.


I believe that God could help us with our problems but he won’t make us do anything.  We  have choices, where to go, who to go with, what to do. All of these decisions are put there to hep us succeed buy either doing the right thing or learning what happens when we do what’s wrong.  Diane Fienstein should figure out just what god she’s praying to and then do so.  She needs to be the “whatever” she is and she needs to allow others to make those same decisions for themselves but more than that she needs to dial back the hypocrisy index before she implodes.

I’m sorry.  I should have seen it. My only defense is that I’ve been sick with the flu/upper resp. stuff that’s going around, since before Christmas.  It’s made me somewhat dull intellectually. It takes a while before the B-B goes into the hole whether from lack of sleep or medicine or lethargy, I’m not sure.

I got the imagery of Obama  surrounded by children.  The same kind of imagery used by Stalin, Hitler, Mao Se Tung, Castro and other despots. It was not surprising to anyone who has watched this most narcissistic of presidents. No the imagery I forgot was Jesus in Jerusalem when His disciples tried to keep the children from bothering him. Several accounts of this can be found in Matthew 19:14, Luke 18:16, Mark 10:14.  It was such an important doctrinal teaching that it was repeated three separate times by three different authors.  Even erstwhile christians (small c, the Christmas, Easter types of Christians) know about this event.   I quote from Mark which has the most to say about it:

 13 ¶And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.

14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.

16 And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.

Yes, I totally overlooked that.  Mostly because I don’t see much in common between Jesus and Mr. Obama.  I have never seen him as a messiah, here to cure our ills and bring us to the “Promised Land”.  I can’t get passed the total lack of empathy, the coldness, the aloofness, the detachment, the palatable indifference shown by him except of course during the campaign or when he wants something.

No I missed the imagery and what it was meant to convey because I’m not a shallow thinker.  I look for the deeper meaning in the things people, especially people in high places, people who are supposedly better than I, do and say.  The fact is that Mr Obama as a Senator 4 times, at least, tried to limit restrictions on ” Partial birth abortions”.

Indeed from Wikipedia (not the most Conservative of sources):

In the Illinois state legislature, Obama opposed the Induced Infant Liability Act[6](1) and repeatedly voted against requirements and restrictions intended to stop what opponents label “born alive” abortions.[7][8](2) (3) Obama said his opposition was because of technical language he felt might have “interfered with a woman’s right to choose” and said Illinois law already required medical care in such situations.[8][9](4)(5)

Obama voted against the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, saying “On an issue like partial birth abortion, I strongly believe that the state can properly restrict late-term abortions. I have said so repeatedly. All I’ve said is we should have a provision to protect the health of the mother, and many of the bills that came before me didn’t have that.”[10](6) Obama voted against a bill that would have made it a federal crime for anyone other than a parent to accompany a minor across state lines to obtain an abortion.[11](7) Obama has, however, expressed support of bans on some late-term abortions, provided they include exemptions for the mental and physical health of the mother.[12](8)

There are few cases where a baby already born alive is going to compromise the life of the mother.  No this is a despicable act, this is in fact  murder, whether the head is still in the birth canal or not.  I’ve heard of many things laid at Christ’s door but never that.  As a matter of fact Jesus also said in Mark 18 in answer to the question of who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven, that except one be as a little child they shall not enter there in. It also states:

5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me

6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

So you see the dichotomy in this imagery.  Mr Obama can’t be the protector of our children when he supports the right of women to abort through the birth process and a needle to the back of the skull, a living human being, a child, then choose to wrap around him as a cloak our children while he extolls, the virtues of “saving” them through gun control.  If he had his way many of those children would not be alive to have their pictures taken with him. How many of them have been, through situation, a “punishment” for their parents?  The unexpected, the unplanned, the inconvenient event. No, those parents chose life for their child contrary to Mr Obama’ s stated policies. This is just one of the reasons why his manipulation of children to advance his radical agenda offends me.  The continued support bordering on the fanatical of people who refuse to admit his policies are destructive to the fabric of the country, self serving and egotistical as well as narcissistic in the extreme also offends me.

Then again anyone; religious, government leader or celebrity, who equates themselves with God offends me. Apparently I’m easily offended.

Control……

Well push has finally come to shove.  Our great leader, our wise omniscient overlord has finally gotten what he’s been after for 6 long years.  He has a reason, he believes to disarm the citizenry.  Obama has been after this since well before the election.  It’s not clear whether his motivation is benign or cancerous but it is clear that he has been planning this for years.  Fast and furious didn’t get him there.  Eric Holders incompetence didn’t make this happen. No, all it took was a boy with mental illness to push this debate over the top and into the land of alternate reality.  A reality where guns jump off the table or out of the gun safe and into the hands of mentally unstable people.

In the last several incidences the movie theater, the last several college shootings and yes the shooting in CT, the tragedy was precipitated by someone who should have been locked up.  They were a danger to themselves and society.  They did not buy their guns from reputable dealers, they either stole them or got them  illegally.  They could have used a knife or a bomb they learned how to make on the Internet.  The reason they were out and about can be laid at the door of the compassionate, alternate reality president Jimma’ Carter.  You remember Jimma’ right?  He’s the guy who runs around the world blaming every problem, every issue, every wrong thing ever done to anyone at America’s door.  He is the creator of the “Blame America World Tour.” I’d like to blame that on Obama but the truth is the truth. We are to Carter the “Great Satan”. If it had been closer to the Iranian Hostage Crisis I’d suggest “Stockholm Syndrome”.  He seems to have fallen in love with his abusers. Do we blame the people who have produced the tragedy? No. We blame the tool they used to do it.  Liberal thinking at it’s best.  They love to personalize and humanize all sorts of objects giving them “feelings” and human behavior.  Several generations have been fed the Disney pablum of animals with human emotions.  They’re animals not humans and while your dog seems to love you, stop feeding him and see how long he goes without attempting to eat you.

Why you might ask does our “Great Leader” want to disarm the populace?  Why does the idea of people with AR-15 bother him so?  For the same reason an armed citizenry bothered Mao, Lenin, Stalin, Castro, Chavez and Hitler.  When one is poised on the edge of the greatest power grab since, well ever, one must make sure the populace doesn’t have the means to fight back.  One also wants to make sure that the army, which is made up of good people, doesn’t have to make the decision between the elected officials and their fellow citizens.  It is questionable whether or not members of the armed forces would fire upon fellow citizens.  If however he can confiscate enough weapons from the legal owners only the police, military and criminals will have guns.  He will be declaring open season on America.  People will not be able to protect themselves against the government and it’s parasites.

Mario Cuomo governor of New York is having a hysterical fit. Of course he is, does anyone really know how many disturbed people are running around New York city? Legal or illegal? Armed or not armed yet? That someone hasn’t blown up any number of places, people or things is amazing.  I would humbly suggest to the governor that Chicago has the most restrictive gun laws in the country,and last year they had 523 murders.  Banning guns only made sure that the criminals were the only ones packing and the police won’t respond to calls in certain areas of the city without a task force and heavy duty weaponry.  So we should turn the whole country into a gulag where the citizen get screwed on a daily basis by anyone with enough money or clout or criminality to purchase a firearm, illegally of course.  When guns are banned only criminals will have guns should be the new poster for travel to Chicago.  Quite the reputation for the “home” of the president.

Maybe just maybe we should address the problems, the causes of the tragedies.  Mental illness seems to be a running theme in these atrocities.  A mother who couldn’t commit her child, a person already spotlighted for his dangerous behavior and in therapy. Governor Cuomo is right about one thing no one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer. If you practice it should only take one shot to take down game. People aren’t afraid of bears governor,they’re afraid of fellow citizens.  They’re afraid of predators of the two legged variety.  They’re afraid of an overreaching, out of control government.  They’re afraid of illegals and ex-cons let out because of prison over crowding.  They’re afraid of people who seek to strip from us the rights and privileges guaranteed to us under the Constitution written by a people who knew up close and personal what kind of excesses an all powerful, distant and uncaring government can foist upon an unarmed populace.

So while America burns, Obama fiddles. He and his surrogates make impassioned pleas for sanity.  They paint the gun owner as someone one step from cracking up or acting out or killing us all in our beds.  It of course is the same song and dance they trot out every elections.  Republicans want to push grandma over a cliff, they want to starve children, they hate the poor, or this minority or that minority.  Scare tactics and misdirections so you won’t focus on their other hand.  Enough people apparently believe them because the WORST president in the history of the country was reelected. A man that if his skin were of a lighter hue would have been impeached or imprisoned already. A man who seeks to gut the constitution, enslave the citizens all in favor of his radical agenda and comrades.

It is odd that people who so dislike our system of government don’t move to places where the government is more to their liking.  Of course they wouldn’t be in positions of authority there.  They wouldn’t be able to grab the power from those in charge. Those kinds of governments would just have them removed, whether to another country or to a dirt nap is up for grabs. Here’s an interesting statistic; there are total of  2,221,502 individuals in the military, according to Wikipedia.  There are over 38,000,000 hunters as well. That doesn’t include those who have weapons just to have them or who have them for personal protection.  Sounds like a lot more folks are becoming gun owners as I write this. AR’s are flying off the shelves and ammunition is becoming scarce.  Here’s a clue.  Most sane gun owners have been stockpiling ammo for years.  They have seen where the country is going and want to be survivors after the troubles are over.

We don’t buy AR’s to protect us against animals Mr. Cuomo. We buy them to protect ourselves, our families and our property against the animals you and the nanny state have created. The animals that think it’s “fair” to take from those who produce and give to those who do not produce.  Who think that all they have to do is say “I want” and it becomes theirs.  The people who breed indiscriminately, rob, cheat and steal all in the name of “compensation” “fairness” and ” our turn”.  If you want to stop the violence you should start by figuring out why minorities are multiple times more likely to be raised in a single parent home or in a home where they are not fed or clothed appropriately. Where no one has held a full time job in generations, where having a new car is more important than feeding or clothing your children.  A home where the mother was not underage at the time of she gave birth to her first child and the father is not an adult who has committed statutory rape .  A home where children are encouraged to go to school, learn and grow so that they can make good choices.  A home where there are two sane, sober, parents making the hard choices that become the examples to their children of hard work, sacrifice and real love, not the coupling one sees on television and especially in the movies. A home with a mother and a father working in tandem to raise children to become  productive, sane and free of addiction (to drugs, to sex and to any thing that will hurt them and dull their opportunity to progress).

Maybe we should focus on the cause of the disease instead of suturing the cut on our finger, instead of operating on the body politic to remove the cancer that has been growing for multiple generation. Maybe we should stop making it impossible for one parent to remain at home and actually parent.  Maybe the government should stop spending money it won’t have for centuries and go back to paying as we go.  Maybe we should stop being out of touch, greedy and afraid.  Maybe we should look at the problems facing us today and stop trying to distract and shift blame onto someone or especially some inanimate object that needs someone to operate it.  Perhaps the government should pare down expenses and turn many of these problems back to the states.  But you see Obama and Co. can’t do that because this isn’t about legality or safety . This is about power and control, who has it, who wants it and what are they going to do to get it and keep it.  Obama’s next step after an unarmed citizenry is to throw out the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution and make himself president for life.  After all while 8 years may be long enough  to make the sweeping reforms he’s promised, it’s not enough time to “fundamentally change America”………………into the fascist, socialist utopia he promised, with those who produce producing and those who take taking. What could be more compassionate, more fair and more just?

Don’t forget your heard it  here first.

Wanted:

……Adults, to lead, direct, contain and return government to it’s original boundaries.  This is what “we the people” should be advertising for.  We’ve had all sorts of leaders the good, the bad and the ugly in the history of the United States. We have never however, had a such a huge group of “Peter Pan/ Tinkerbells” in charge of important things like Justice, Immigration, Security, Military, Education and the executive branch.  Seriously the shear amount of tantrums, back biting and revenge taking reminds one of Junior High School with Kindergarten rolled in for good measure. I’ve observed two year olds with brighter moral compasses then these pretend adults.

Apparently the Speaker of the House and the Senate Majority Leader exchanged verbal insults at the White House the other day.  Mr Boehner apparently sunk to a new low in Congressional communications spurred on by Mr Reids typically insulting, insolent and down right offensive jabs and barbs.  One the Speaker needs to grow up and learn that it doesn’t matter what someone says about you, yo’ mama, your job, your taste, or your political party no matter how impotent.  Second Mr. Reid needs to stop being the nerdy, smarmy, smart mouthed, self righteous, 98 lb weakling who spends his time picking at other people’s scabs.

Seriously could we get some people in government who don’t act like kindergarteners who don’t have a clue how the real world works?  Could we get some people who have run businesses, who paid taxes, written checks and who understand that government CAN NOT keep spending billions even trillions of dollars more than we take in each year?

When we’re not hobbled by the kindergarteners we’re faced with the pre-teens.  Those politicians who are so wrapped up in their own ideologies that they can’t see or believe that most people don’t agree with them. Most people don’t think like them and most people can’t live like they do.  The angst that these people experience when “we the people” don’t agree with them is almost comical.  If it wasn’t so serious it would be funny but there is nothing funny about the inability to understand and acknowledge real facts. The numbers don’t lie and that brings us to the most troubling part of this analogy, the two year olds.

The two year olds are the voters who refuse to accept reality. They see it, they can’t help but see it.  They simply won’t accept it.  They categorically ignore the facts, they disbelieve the experts unless said experts agree with them,  they kill the messenger.  They continue to play with their legos, their dollies, their Matchbox cars to the exclusion of all else.  When bad things happen they blame everyone else but themselves and then throw a temper tantrum until someone gives them what they want.  They call people names and when the do get their way they make sure to make their enemies pay to the last mite. Even then they’re not satisfied until their offender is completely destroyed.  There is no reasoning with a two year old.  They have no tolerance for any other point of view then their own.  There is no open minded philosophy here. There is simply do what I want NOW, and if you’ve seen or read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl you will remember that it never ends well. Veruca Salt was a very bad nut.

So it would be great if we could find some folks who are willing to Cowboy/girl up.  People who are not interested in making a career out of politics. People who are not trying to find some cushy job with golden parachute benefits, like retirement after one tour of duty and an exemption to Obamacare as well as raises no matter what the economy is doing.  Someone willing to tell the American people to stop throwing a tantrum and sit down before they get spanked.  Someone to remind us that we are adults and thus responsible to not simply ourselves but to generations unborn.  After all the culture of terminating life in the womb  and getting rid of the units (people over 70) won’t be able to kill all of the future generations.

Not that they won’t try, because you know anything that’s inconvenient must be gotten rid of. We can’t have our sons and daughters “punished by a baby”.  (Don’t want your sons punished- teach them to keep “it” in their pants, don’t want daughters punished- teach them to keep their legs crossed. That is the ONLY way to keep from procreating and even Planned Parenthood /Murder Incorporated should know that but then again see the paragraph on Pre Teens. That explains so much).
