Say it loud…

If you oppose the 2nd Amendment, you are an enemy of the Bill of Rights.

If you are an enemy of the Bill of Rights, you are an enemy of the Constitution.

If you are an enemy of the Constitution, you are an enemy of The People.

If you are an enemy of The People, you are an enemy of mine.

They’re Liberals…

August 9, 2012

They can’t help themselves…

Replace “Clinton” with “Obama” in the following excerpt and then ask yourself if anything has changed in the last 12 years or so…

What Clinton and his kind want to develop is a population which sees itself as a victim of violent crime, economic injustice, racial and sexual prejudice, and helpless to correct these wrongs without government assistance. People who see themselves as victims look to rescuers, look to those who will help, for a victim is one who is demonstrably incapable of doing things for himself. He wouldn’t be a victim otherwise. And under no circumstances must a victim take action on his own to remedy the evil he suffers from. Never. He should call the government to help.” – Howard McCord in “The Coming Civil War in America”

Why isn’t this front page news?

August 8, 2012

From the Columbus Dispatch

AURORA, COLO. —The psychiatrist who treated suspected movie-theater shooter James Holmes contacted a University of Colorado police officer to express concerns about Holmes’ behavior several weeks before the rampage, ABC News reported, citing unnamed sources.

The sources did not know what the officer approached by Dr. Lynne Fenton did with the information she passed along, ABC said in a report late Monday on its website.

Under Colorado law, a psychiatrist can legally breach a pledge of confidentiality with a patient after becoming aware of a serious and imminent threat that the patient might cause harm to others, ABC said. Psychiatrists also can breach confidentiality if a court has ordered them to do so.

University spokeswoman Jacque Montgomery declined to comment on what, if anything, the university police officer might have done with information provided by Fenton.

So, the gun laws worked exactly the way they were supposed to the liberals demanded (he was legally permitted to purchase firearms)…the psychiatrist did what she was supposed to do, with plenty of time to spare, but a public employee, sworn to protect the safety of citizens, did nothing and people died.

And of course the cries from the left immediately after the shooting, all the way up the chain, were for more reviews of existing laws (read more gun control).

The government apparatus dropped the ball on this one.  That doesn’t give anyone the right to use this tragedy as a call to further infringe my rights.

I have this recurring dream

August 8, 2012

I am gazing at the brilliant full moon. The same one, I think to myself, at which Socrates, Aristotole and Plato gazed.

Suddenly, I imagine they appear beside me. I tell Socrates about the national debate over one’s right to die and wonder at the constancy of the human condition.

I tell Plato that I live in the country that has come the closest to Utopia, and I show him a copy of the Constitution.

I tell Aristotle that we have found many more than four basic elements and I show him a periodic table.

I get a box of kitchen matches and strike one. They gasp with wonder.

We spend the rest of the night lighting farts.

Hippy talk

August 7, 2012

Overheard through the fence on the side by the hippy neighbors’ house:

My kid: “My cousin takes karate lessons!”

Other neighborhood kid: “My sister takes gymnastics!”

Not to be outdone…

Hippy kid: “My sister takes antibiotics!”

So this family was outside the church this morning with a cardboard sign saying they had lost their jobs, had two kids, no food, etc.

So I called the police in to help them out…last I saw, they were getting into the cruiser…I’m guessing the cops were taking them to a restaurant or the unemployment office or something…

Sure glad I could help out…
