Really? Police Deployed in Riot Gear -What Are We Becoming?

October 13, 2013

A peaceful protest converged on the World War II Memorial on the National Mall today, Sunday morning. Members of the so-called “Million Vet March” descended on Washington, D.C. (becoming known as the District of Corruption), to protest the Obama administration’s decision to close the city’s public memorials.

The ‘Barrycades’ are down according to WTOP, 103.5 FM and the crowd chanted “Tear down these walls!” and sang “God Bless America” as well as other patriotic songs as they entered the memorial, which has been closed since the government shutdown that began Oct. 1st.

The police showed up in riot gear amid angry shouts from the protesters –

“You are public servants

You took an oath

You work for us!

Protect the people

We’re Americans in a peaceful protest

Where’s liberty?”

Just how far are they going to push us? And just how much can we stomach?

Piers Morgan Takes A Needed Pounding

April 7, 2012

“God created men and women in all sizes, but it was Samuel Colt who made them all equal.”

Standing up to Piers Morgan and standing up for your 2nd Amendment rights.

You Go Ted!

How your 2nd Amendment Rights are being squeezed:

  • The Supreme Court decisions: D.C. v. Heller & McDonald v. Chicago have since been interpreted as only the right to possess a firearm inside one’s home.
  • Foot dragging by the Senate on passing the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act which would treat concealed carry licenses like driver’s licenses across state lines.
  • The continuing support by the Obama administration in support of an UN Arms Trade Treaty.
  • The ACLU’s position that the 2nd Amendment Right is a collective right rather than an individual right and subject to limitations and removal by Congress or other legislative bodies.
  • More and more onerous taxes, registration requirements and fees to license and register guns.
  • Some cities bans on firing ranges, gun shops within city limits, etc.
  • Confiscation of guns by police (Aug 30, 2005, the day after Katrina hit the Gulf Coast)
  • Limits on the number of guns residents can buy

While You Rang In 2012, Obama Was Busy Trashing America’s Liberties

January 2, 2012

Another sneak attack on Americans by their own president.

Hello tyranny, goodbye liberty

On New Year’s eve when most of us were ringing in the new year and trying to forget 2011, President Obama signed while vacationing in Hawaii, the controversial and not very popular National Defense Authorization Act, (NDAA). This law basically throws out the Bill of Rights (hat-tip and my friend Penny on Maui).

It grants the U.S. military the “legal” right to conduct secret kidnappings of U.S. citizens, followed by indefinite detention, interrogation, torture and even murder. This is all conducted completely outside the protection of law, with no jury, no trial, no legal representation and not even any requirement that the government produce evidence against the accused. It is a system of outright government tyranny against the American people, and it effectively nullifies the Bill of Rights.

Remember the Constitutional ‘professor’ (ok apparently he was just a lecturer), Barrack Obama in 2008 characterized the Constitution as

“a charter of negative rights, a charter of negative liberties, saying what the states and federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf.”

This is scary stuff and it’s greatly expanded the nanny-state and the entitlement mentality of our country, not to mention the reach and grasp of the federal government. Hello tyranny, goodbye liberty.

Aloha, Mikie
