Ban the murder weapon

There have been numerous killings using the subway. The subway should be banned as that was the method used for killing. The subway is the problem here….

Sorry New York, no more Subway system since it was used as a murder weapon and we are now trying to ban murder weapons. How dumb does that sound?

US of Marx?

These two quotes from Karl Marx sums up our current governmental position:

The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them

Democracy is the road to Socialism

Open your eyes… Ayn Rand (Crazy to some, genius to others) said in a Donahue interview that BOTH parties wanted socialism, and that Americans really don’t have an honest choice when voting.

Gun “Control”

Let us look at how gun “control” has affected the history of our planet by those who understood it:

One man with a gun can control 100 without. – Vlademer Lenin

Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun. The party must control all the guns, that way the guns cannot control the party. – Mao Zedong

I come bearing an olive branch in one hand, and a gun in the other. Do not let the olive branch fall from my hand. – Yasser Arafat

The most foolish mistake we could make is to allow the subject races to bear arms. – Adolph Hitler

Guns, for what? – Fidel Castro

A free people ought to be armed. – George Washington

Arms in the hands of citizens may be used at individual discretion in private self defense. – John Adams

To disarm the people is the most effectual way to enslave them. – George Mason

If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun. – The Dalai Lama

Which version of “control” do you think worked better? History does not lie.

Crazy

The Senate Leader Harry Reid (D) just made the comment that House Speaker Boehner let everyone leave because he is not concerned about the “fiscal cliff”. Let us not forget the House has passed bills already addressing this concern, to which the Senate refused to bring to the table and the White House promised to veto anyway. Sooo, let us not forget the House DID pass bills for this, so Reid’s comments are political and nothing more.

Now to our illustrious everyman President, who himself takes tax deductions while criticizing those who take tax deductions. I just confused myself a little. Mr Double talk himself, Obama, through his Left wing media outlets is trying to portray himself as the hero by CUTTING HIS VACATION SHORT TO DEAL WITH THE ISSUE.

Here is my issue. The idiots out there who blindly follow will never understand this, but I will try to explain anyway. Obama had PLENTY of opportunity to get this done BEFORE his Hawaii vacation. The Senate has actually broken Constitutional and Federal LAW by not passing a budget for the entire time Obama has been in office. Somehow, nobody EVER gets in trouble for this. The average citizen goes to prison for breaking federal law, but not the congressional members.

Harry Reid and Obama are liars, plain and simple. Reid tries to spin the situation as though he has been patiently waiting the Republican answer to a question that was never asked, and Obama is trying to play the hero on a situation he assisted in creating. The bottom line is the Republicans have no negotiating wiggle room, because the Democrats simply allow everything to expire and they get what they wanted from the beginning! Higher taxes, still no budget, military cuts, and MORE government.

The Republicans may as well just stay home now, because the Left is spinning EVERYTHING they try to do as wicked and evil. The Left won this fight, they won it when that Unconstitutional super committee was formed and did nothing. Now we are seeing the results from that! Couple this with the Left now trying to avert the Legislation process and give Obama fiat powers to spend, the Senate trying to do away with the Filibuster, and you no longer have the Republic you know, you have a quasi-dictatorship who is talking about removing guns from the people it RULES!

Think about it folks, Jefferson said this when speaking of freedoms:

When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.

No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

Jefferson knew government was dangerous, and he knew the danger of power as proven in his above quotes. Now ask yourself, do you fear the government? Before you answer, ask yourself now why you follow speed limits, register your car, show up to court when your child misses 6 days of school, and file federal taxes every year. Do some honest self-examination, and I think you will find you are VERY fearful of our Government. This current word salad coming from Washington is highly toxic from both sides, but don’t be an idiot and think all of this is just happenstance. It was planned carefully and will affect you if you don’t speak out.

Convenience Fee

Our local utility office (Owned and operated by the City Corporation) just began offering online payments. There is a convenience fee associated with this option. They are charging almost $10 to pay your bill online! Interesting they would tack on an additional amount given the benefits of less employee involvement, instant payment, and the green agenda being met going paperless. Something else I noticed on my bill was they are now double charging for water-sewer. The bill reflected water usage with a fee, but now reflects 20 gallons used, 20 gallons sewer, both being charged.

What if I water my yard? Does that mean I used those gallons for sewer? No, but I am incapable off providing this for myself, so the city does what it wants.

ANOTHER fee… Go figure. Wonder where that money is going since I am part of the TN Valley Authority (TVA) that paid out more than $94 Million in Christmas Bonuses alone in 2010. That seems fair, I should pay more after all according to our idiot President.

Gun Registration

My wife and I had a discussion about gun registration yesterday that prompted me to do some follow-up research. This is what I found:

The following states require a State permit to purchase a firearm, but nothing else.

Rhode Island, Iowa, Illinois, Connecticut, and New Jersey

The following states require a State permit to purchase AND State registration.

California, Michigan, and New York

Washington state requires the FFL dealer to file paperwork with the local Sheriff’s Dept on what was purchased and by who. After the purchase, there is nothing further required.

Some of the larger cities in the US have independent laws and bans such as NYC and Chicago which require more stringent rules and/or restrictions in the city limits. If your state was not on the list, then you have no gun registration requirements, and most are open carry legal. Open carry means you can wear a sidearm such as a pistol LEGALLY with no permits required – it is your right.

Another gun control discussion

Take em away, no leave em alone. What is the answer?

First let us look at the argument, the anti-gun folks are suggesting M4/AR15 style guns should be banned completely and only available to police and military. Pro gun lobby says you should be able to buy any gun you want as a 2nd Amendment right.

I am not getting into that discussion because I think it is childish. Types of guns do NOT kill people, the person behind the gun does. That is a fact and indisputable. Certain types of guns allow more bullet capacity than others, but there is no current law stating how many bullets a person can own, so that argument is out the window.

Where does that leave us? It leaves us where we currently are. Guns are not the problem, the person behind any murder/genocide is the problem. It is really easy to accuse the guns for the crime especially due to the nature of the murders recently. I concede that fact openly. What I refuse to agree with is that if all guns were banned, this kid would have been a productive member of society. Let me show you how ridiculous this gun is the problem argument is:

What if he would have used an ax to perform this sick act?

What if he would have drown them in a pool?

How about running them over in a car?

What about a knife?

A hammer?

A lead pipe?

My point is this: using the above possibilities to kill someone, you would say that he was a crazy man. You would NEVER come to the conclusion that an ax, a pool, a car, a knife, a hammer, or a pipe be banned or regulated by the government because some crazy killed others with it. So why do we immediately go there with guns? The short answer is politics. Guns have always been a topic of discussion of politics and perhaps that is the bigger story when talking of bans. Instead of blaming guns for the acts of an individual, why not ask yourself WHY the government does not want you to have them? I assure you it is NOT for protection of the citizens or alcohol and tobacco would not even exist.
