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!

Sandy attacks the northeast

Posted by Troy on 31st October 2012 in Political

A lot of people are asking: How is this going to affect the election?

I think that it is difficult for a President to get a boost from handling a storm correctly.  Now, blundering it might hurt them, but doing the baseline of whatever it is they are supposed to do probably won’t help them.  I just don’t see people seeing the Federal government as their salvation.  Also, most of the states affected are going to vote for Obama regardless.

I would like to point out: Romney was criticized for politicizing Libya.  However, the media cheers when Obama politicizes a natural disaster!

For those who say: how dare you!  The President is helping those in need!  Okay… where was he when the entire state of Texas was burning?  Where was he when Memphis was underwater?  He didn’t seem to care.  Was it because those states are “Red States?”  Or does it have to be closer to an election for him to give a damn?

The President is doing nothing about this storm.  If he was put in charge of the relief effort, this thing would be a mess like you would not believe.  No, the head of FEMA and the Red Cross, and others are doing the relief efforts.  All Obama has done is shown up for photo ops and to take up valuable time from people actually doing work so that he can get said photo ops.  Meanwhile, when Americans were dying in Libya, he was no where to be found.  He IS Commander in Chief!  That is an actual duty of his.  Where was he?  Now they say that Obama didn’t order the stand down.  Their story is so convoluted that it cannot be believed.  So which option do you like?

1)  Obama knew nothing and the state department blew it.  Great, so a Commander and Chief that doesn’t know what’s going on?

2)  Obama knew of the attack, but thought it was a protest.  Wait, they said they knew it was a terrorist attack.

3)  Obama knew of the attack but didn’t order help.  So you have the balls to order a strike into an “ally” country to kill bin Laden but not to save our people?

4)  Obama ordered the rescue effort, but the order was cancelled.  This would be a lie unless Obama fires the person that gave that order.  The fired person would immediately turn and rat Obama out, so he can’t do that.

5)  Obama ordered the stand down.  Not good, and he just lied and said that he didn’t order it.

Notice, there are no “win” positions for the man!

Long Live the Constitution!

Bloomberg is a Fascist

Posted by Troy on 4th June 2012 in Current Events, Political

In a world where we throw around terms like extremist and socialist and Nazi, we have lost sight of what a Fascist looks like.  No, I’m not talking about the common definition which basically equates brutal governments to Fascism.  A lot of people say that Fascism is when the corporations run the government.  This too is wrong.  No, what makes for Fascism is when the government decides what the market should decide.  The government becomes the arbiter for all decisions from what should be reported to the price of a gallon of milk or the salary of those milking the cow.

Bloomberg is a Fascist.  Pure and simple.  First, he mandated how much salt you could consume.  Now he wants to control how much sugar you drink in the form of sodas.  He wants to pass a law that will prevent places from selling soft drinks in any size greater than 16 ounces.  The reason for this is that he is sick of obesity.  Obesity increases the amount of health risks the person faces and adds cost to our medical system.  Of course, a better solution might be to allow insurers to cancel your insurance once you exceed a certain BMI, but we can’t have insurers dropping problem clients, can we?  We can’t discriminate on conditions (pre-existing or otherwise).  Such a simple clause, “We agree to cover you as long as you maintain your premiums and do not exceed a BMI of 30.”  Of course, that would be terrible, so instead we are going to make sure someone with a BMI of 21 who is really thirsty can’t buy a 32 ounce drink with their own money.  We’ll also make sure lovers can’t buy one drink and split it between the two of them to save costs.  The fact of the matter is that obesity is almost always self-inflicted.  And yet, we insist on failing to account for personal responsibility.  Perhaps people would watch their weight more if they knew gaining five more pounds would nullify their medical benefits (and yeah, I’d include Medicare and Medicaid).  If someone refuses to do the bare minimum in taking care of themselves, why should taxpayers take care of them?

Bloomberg uses his network to dole out his ideology.  He attempts to impose his will on others.  He seeks to affect the legislation of other states and cities.  He believes that the people are too stupid to see what is good for them.   To Hell with sodas, what if he tried to do the same thing with steak?  The current serving size is three ounces for meat.  Could you imagine ordering a ribeye and they bring out a three ounce hunk of meat?  The argument he uses against sodas could equally be applied to steak or coffee or tea or ice cream or anything else.  What’s to prevent him from dictating that all meals must consist of at least 50% vegetables?  The same logic applies.

I’ve asked this before, and I’ll ask it again..why would anyone want to live in New York City right now?

Long Live the Constitution!
