Health Care Bailout

Filed under Politics

From an email I received today, original author unknown.  But so very, very, very true.

BAIL’EM OUT!!! ????

Hell, back in 1990, the Government seized the Mustang Ranch brothel in  Nevada for tax evasion and, as required by law, tried to run it.. They failed and it closed. Now, we are trusting the economy of our country, our banking system, our auto industry and possibly our health plans to the same nit-wits who couldn’t make money running a whore house and selling whiskey?!”

“What are we thinking”

Which leads the question… if the Socialist anti-American liberals pushing for this crap (yes Pelosi, I’m talking about you, barry, and harry) are so confident in the government’s ability to run our healthcare, why aren’t they touting the success of the government run health care that already exists?

Oh, right…because it’s not a success.

Socialized Health Care is bad

Filed under Politics

tell your congress critter to vote no on ANY health care bill that socializes our health care.  Look at how “well” socialized care works in Canada…. they come down here and out of pocket their health care expenses, because they don’t want to wait a year for an MRI.  If we go to a fail system of health care it’ll screw up our Country AND Canada.

Bye-Bye Ban!

Filed under Adventures with Maryn, Current Events, Politics

Yesterday the Supreme Court agreed to hear the Appeal by Washington D.C, to try and overturn the decision ruling their unconstitutional gun ban was, well unconstitutional (Parker vs D.C was the orignal case, being heard by SCOTUS as D.C, vs Heller).

This is a good thing, as it should finalize once and for all that the 2nd amendment means exactly what it says, and is the only gun control we need.

From NRA-ILA:

U.S. Supreme Court to Hear First Second Amendment Case Since 1939
Tuesday, November 20, 2007

Fairfax, Va. – The United States Supreme Court today announced its decision to take up District of Columbia v. Heller-a case in which plaintiffs challenge the unconstitutional gun ban in the nation’s capital. The District of Columbia appealed a lower court’s ruling earlier this year affirming that the Second Amendment of the Constitution protects an individual right to keep and bear arms, and that the District’s bans on handguns, carrying firearms within the home, and possession of loaded or operable firearms for self-defense violate that right.

The NRA will participate in this case through briefs as a friend of the court. Oral arguments are likely to take place in early 2008.

In March, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that “[T]he phrase ‘the right of the people,’ when read intratextually and in light of Supreme Court precedent, leads us to conclude that the right in question is individual.” The D.C. Circuit also rejected the claim that the Second Amendment does not apply to the District of Columbia because D.C. is not a state.

The decision marks the first time a Second Amendment challenge to a firearm law has reached the Supreme Court since 1939.

A Sheriff that gets it

Filed under Politics

The Larimer County (Colorado) Sheriff gets it.. he understands that “Gun Free Zones” are equal to “Gauranteed Victim Zones”..nothing like providing crazy folk with designated, unprotected areas to use to kill people… He (and rightly so) is calling for more campuses to allow students who are licensed to carry their weapon, to do so. (Utah has it in their state laws that campuses can’t prohibit licensed concealed carriers from carrying…and they’ve had no all out gun fights over someone cutting in line at the cafeteria like Sarah Brady and her yahoos would have you believe will happen on a daily basis).

If legislators keep making areas where law abiding citizens are unable to defend themselves, then legislators are guaranteeing that we will have another mass killing incident. Apparently, legislators haven’t figured out, that criminals, by definition, don’t care what the law is…

Quotes

Filed under Politics

Let’s compare a couple of quotes:

“Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA — ordinary citizens don’t need guns, as their having guns doesn’t serve the State.” -Heinrich Himmler

and

“Banning guns addresses a fundamental right of Americans to feel safe.” -U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein

See anything common between those two?

VA Tech fallout

Filed under Current Events, Politics

Didn’t take long, on the same day as the shootings, the Anti-Gun Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy started trying to leverage the incident into a political grandstanding act for her Anti-gun legislation (she’s the anti-freedom person responsible for trying to renew the about to sunset gun ban, and she’s trying to modify it to include as many firearms as she can)

You can view her initial grandstanding attempt on her website here.

Protest Impact?

Filed under Politics

So…yesterday all the illegal immigrants (or at least, a good portion of them) decided to skip work, school, etc.. to show us how badly we need them and how everything would come to a complete and utter stop without them…

I noticed exactly NO impact.. I couldn’t tell the difference from yesterday “without (illegal) immigrants” and the monday before when the illegals went to work/school/etc…

Seems to have been a pretty worthless demonstration if you ask me… to bad INS/DHS/Border Patrol didn’t do like I thought they should and show up with buses to the rallies…

Did any of you notice any impact from the Illegal immigrants aren’t going to work day?

Illegal Immigrants

Filed under Politics

By now, I’m sure y’all have heard about all the illegal (and I suppose some legal) immigrants who are planning on not going to work on monday in an attempt to fight immigration reform.

Personally, I think its mighty damn nice of them to group themselves in one (ok several, since they’re doing it across the country) big spot.. ought to make it that much easier for INS, DHS, and Border Patrol to pick them up and ship them back home. I would love to see Media reports of there being big buses and trucks at each ‘rally’ point… and all the illegals that gathered being herded onto a bus and sent the hell home.

Energy Bill

Filed under Current Events, Politics

So, in case you missed it. Today Bush signed the latest and greatest (and I use the term greatest very, very loosely) Energy bill into law.

One of the bigger items in this law, is that Daylight Savings Time is now, no longer when its been for like the last 20 years (assuming you don’t live in Arizona or Indiana where they either don’t observe it, or have some parts of the state observe it, while others don’t). This, according to mainstream media, is going to be the apocalypse for electronic devices, worse even then Y2K was supposed to be.
