Colorado has gone nuts

Posted by Troy on 5th March 2013 in Current Events, Political

When I say Colorado, what do you think of? Mountain men?  Rugged individuals?  Outdoorsy types?  Campers?  Hunters?  So forth?  So, why is it that they are on the verge of passing some of the craziest gun laws in the country that will do nothing to reduce gun deaths?  So why is this?  Well, I know that Colorado has become a Mecca for pot lovers and X-treme gamers and what not.  Maybe the crazies have out paced the rugged individualists?  Oh, Heaven help us.  It is clear that the Democratic party is hungry to make an example state.  What better example state than Colorado?  A state where they have the power to pull it off without opposition?  A state which is synonymous with rugged masculinity?  I hate to break it to them, it is going to backfire and backfire royally.  The normal people are going to slaughter the Democrats in the next election.  You will also see extreme grass roots movements to counter any attempts at gun control.  Finally, you will see NRA membership skyrocket.

Long Live the Constitution!

Gun Genie

Posted by Troy on 19th February 2013 in Current Events, Political

Question:  A liberal woman who has been promoting the banning of all guns is in her bedroom, and a rapist has just kicked in the front door.  A Genie appears before her.  He offers her two choices:  a 12 gauge shotgun or a cell phone to call the police.    Which do you think she will choose?  Of course, a gun control proponent would say, “Of course under those circumstances she would want a gun!”  But the thing is…you never know when or if that moment is ever going to happen.  If it does, it’s too late to arm yourself (Check out the Boar and the Fox Aesop fable).

Rosanne Barr actually came out and promoted women using guns to defend themselves from rapists.  I have to somehow reconcile myself to the unthinkable…that I agree with Rosanne about something!  Guns are a great equalizer.  I personally don’t know why any woman wouldn’t choose to have a gun which would level the playing field between a woman and a possible rapist.

Meanwhile, Joe Salazar and other Colorado Democrats don’t believe that women can be trusted to use a gun judiciously.  They recommend whistles, the buddy system, pepper spray, or judo.  Anyone that encourages a 110 pound woman to learn judo as a defense against a 200 pound rapist is a moron.  A well trained martial artist may defeat a much larger opponent…unless that opponent is also a skilled fighter or just tougher than they are.  At any rate, fighting is survival.  It’s not a game.  It’s kill or be killed.  If the girl loses, she gets raped or worse.  It would be doubtful that someone would be able to devote the time necessary to become skilled anyway.  An hour a week isn’t going to cut it.  The scenario Joe believes in, that women are going to go around killing men who are just trying to flirt with them, is asinine.  This rates up there with people who were outraged that Zimmerman didn’t take the beating from Trayvon Martin for a while before merely assuming that Trayvon was trying to kill him.  If a man had you pinned on the ground beating you in the face, how long do you think it would take you to pull the trigger?

I wonder if a big man was trying to rape Joe, how long it would take him before he was willing to use deadly force.

Long Live the Constitution!

Rahm Emanuel – Fascist

Posted by Troy on 25th January 2013 in Political

I’ve said it before, but now there is proof.  Rahm is asking banks to pressure gun manufacturers to go along with “common sense” gun control by cutting them off from funds if they do not comply.  Okay, this is what happens under Fascism.  You play ball, or you starve.  Could you imagine if bankers tried that against the labor unions?  What if they did it against people for promoting gay marriage?  I could do this all day.  The banks have no right to deny someone a loan because of their political, religious, or any other belief.  If you think otherwise, think how you would feel if you couldn’t get a mortgage because of who you voted for?  In Communist Russia, if you didn’t toe the party line, you didn’t eat.  This is the same thing.  Extortion.  Nothing else.

At least he’s consistent

Posted by Troy on 17th January 2013 in Current Events, Political

On 9/11, a small group of Muslims hijacked a plane and killed 3,000 people.  Rather than focus on targeting likely terrorists or doing behavioral profiling or anything of the sort, we decided to infringe on everybody’s freedom of privacy.  Instead of being unfair to a small group, we will be unfair to everyone, and that is fair.  Now a man used a gun to kill 20 children.  Do we punish that one guy?  Do we try to target those individuals who are likely do do something like this?  Or do we be unfair to everyone by making harder for everyone to get a gun?  Fair is fair!  For the wrongs of one man, let us sacrifice our rights to the greater good!  For the collective!  Proletarians unite!

Warning Signs of Fascist Totalitarianism

Posted by Troy on 16th January 2013 in Current Events, Political

Here’s a couple of warning signs of fascist totalitarianism.  Totalitarianists love to use little children to push their agenda.  This is because seeing children ramps up the emotional side of us and defeats our rational thought.  We will agree to destroy our freedoms to “protect the children” which represents the future.  However, these are false promises.  All that happens is we give up our own freedoms and rob our children the right to enjoy those freedoms.

That brings us to the second issue.  New York is forcing law abiding citizens to register their “assault weapons.”  If they do not renew this registration every five years, it becomes a felony.  Yeah, no one has forgotten to renew their driver’s license, and that’s something that they use daily.  I wonder if criminals are going to bother registering their weapons.  Nope?  Then, again, this is just a law that penalizes the law abiding citizens, and to what end?  In history, registration of guns always leads to confiscation which leads to mass graves (Germany, Russia, China).

No lives are going to be saved by any of these measures that the President took.  If you banned all assault weapons, criminals will just use whatever weapon they can find.  A shotgun will kill ya just as good as an AR-15 any day and twice on Sundays.  Making doctors tattle on their patients will have the possible side-effect of preventing these people from seeking help in the first place.  Doctors have an obligation to notify police if they feel their patients pose a real threat to someone.  Right now, I’m recommending that people lie to their doctors and tell them that they do not own a gun if they are asked.

I’m sick of how this President operates.  Mark my words, when they start marching out kids that have been coached by party liners to advance the agenda, there’s trouble brewing.  Don’t be fooled.  Let’s let our kids be kids, and we’ll be grown-ups and actually deal with the problem.  If you ask a kid, they might tell you we should end homelessness by giving everyone a house.  Kids aren’t equipped to solve grown-up problems.  However, I can understand why Obama would want to surround himself with children.  It must feel like a Democratic National Convention.

Long Live the Constitution!

Obama to Use Kids in His Plea for Gun Control

Posted by Troy on 15th January 2013 in Current Events, Political

From the mouth of babes.

Obama is going to use kids that wrote him letters regarding gun violence as a backdrop for his push for gun control.  Gee, I wonder if these kids were put up to this by their parents.  Just a hunch there, but from the mouth of babes, as they say.

Actually, no.  How about this: lets let children be children, and we adults will talk about stuff and come up with solutions.  How does that sound?  Obama is trying to manipulate people to get his way.  These kids are just a prop, and it is disgusting to see him use children this way.  I still maintain that the Left’s first thought after Newtown was, “Alright!  Now we can get gun control…finally!  Oh…yeah, and those poor kids, you know…”

The thought that banning assault rifles or large clips will stop this is asinine.  If the shooter couldn’t get an AR-15, he would have used a shotgun, or two pistols, or a .22 rifle (also comes with large capacity magazines), order large magazines online from overseas, or any other number of solutions.  This is why the end result of all gun control must be the banning (including confiscation) of all guns (except for possibly single shot muzzle loaders or something) because to do otherwise is absolutely meaningless.

Texas Representative Steve Stockman Threatens Obama with Impeachment

Posted by Troy on 14th January 2013 in Current Events, Political

He must read Swampfoxpress!  Thank you Steve Stockman!  Yes, when a President attempts to curtail a right guaranteed by the bill of rights (in this case, gun control) by Executive Order (bypassing all other branches of government all together), then we have a dictator.  Not even the combined powers of government can legitimately take away our rights.  That has to be done by a Constitutional amendment, but when one person does it, he is a dictator and an enemy of the state and cannot be trusted in the office of the President.  Of course, anyone voting for impeachment will be branded instantly as a racist.  Oh well.

Long Live the Constitution!

Proposed Unconstitutional Moves

Posted by Troy on 9th January 2013 in Current Events, Political

In response to the issues facing us today, some people are proposing broad, unrestrained, executive power as the solution.  In layman’s terms, turning the President into a dictator.  Here are some of the suggestions:

1)  For the debt limit – Let’s just mint a one trillion dollar platinum coin.  This would be used to pay off the debt.  Wow, yeah, the rest of the world couldn’t figure out that this is the same as printing one trillion more dollar bills and paying off debt, monetizing the debt.  Peachy.

2)  For the debt limit – Give the President the power under the Fourteenth Amendment to raise the debt limit as he sees fit.  I still don’t understand what interpretation supports this.  Congress has control over all spending.  That includes the debt limit.

3) Gun control – Use some sort of executive order to work around Congress to counter a right guaranteed by the Constitution.

Here’s an answer to all of these tactics.  If he uses any of these tactics, he is acting in direct opposition to the Constitution.  All of these issues are meant to be addressed by the three co-equal branches of government.  Laws are meant to be written and passed by the Legislative Branch, signed into law and enforced by the Executive Branch, and interpreted by the Judicial Branch.  When one branch takes it upon themselves to make, interpret, and enforce the laws, that is the act of a dictator, and he MUST be impeached.  Of course, people are too chicken to say it.  He could burn the Constitution on live TV, and anyone calling for his impeachment would be called a racist extremist.  Oh well, huh?

Long Live the Constitution!

The Reason for Owning Arms

Posted by Troy on 8th January 2013 in Current Events, Political

Someone recently sent me an article about the pros and cons of gun control.  While I could argue most all of his points, there is one in particular I would like to discuss.  He finds the concept of the original intent of the Second Amendment, that of defending ourselves against an oppressive government, laughable.  And this is where he is wrong.  As it is pointed out in Federalist Paper 46, the largest military a country can maintain is about 1/25th of those capable of bearing arms.  This means that the odds against the military are 1 to 24.  Of that, yes, they have tanks, but the French and the Russians have shown that people can improvise anti-tank weapons.  There is another psychological factor.  You see, it is easy for a military to oppress their fellow citizens when they are not shooting back.  It might give them a bad taste in their mouth, but they will suffer through.  When those same people are shooting at them and forcing the soldiers to shoot back and kill their fellow citizen, the more likely they are to turn on the government that hired them.  Query, if Obama ordered the military to open fire on citizens, do you think the military would be more prone to fight their fellow citizen or act to remove the President from office via force?  Would they they choose to massacre hundreds of thousands for the sake one one man?  Or would they kill that one man?  Without guns though, the military can just show up with tanks and guns, and everyone would be too afraid to do anything to them.  Oppression sets in, and that’s the end.  If the people of Syria and Egypt and Libya can overthrow governments that are willing to slaughter them, I think we stand a fighting chance too.

Five Gallon Bucket Control – Responsible, Common Sense Bucket Control

Posted by Troy on 8th January 2013 in Political

Did you know that 20 children drown in 5 gallon buckets each year?  I call “enough!”  Why is it that we live in such a country where people believe that it is their RIGHT to own a five gallon bucket?  The plastic technology that exists today allows for the proliferation of five gallon buckets in such a way that the Founding Fathers would not have foreseen.  They also probably assumed that parents would be attentive of their children.  Of course, the pro-five gallon bucket lobby would have you believe that parents should be responsible for their children and such deaths are merely accidents while denying the blood on their hands as they get rich selling these instruments of toddler death to the public.  They are so greedy that they actually sell these buckets as containers for other goods, thus forcing these death devices upon people who didn’t even want a five gallon bucket!  This must end now!  I will require funds, of course, to battle their lobby.  Please send me your donations made out to “Cash.”  Thank you.

We could save the same number of kids that died at Sandy Hook EVERY YEAR by outlawing these things.  I believe in the right to transport water from one location to another, but we need common sense bucket control to balance our individual rights and public safety.

Long Live the Constitution!
