Take this for what it is worth. A wonderful rant by a Texan.
Hello once more from the Regional Headquarters Of Conspiratorial Right Wing Jingoistic Conclusion Jumping Constitution Supporting Conceal Carry Believers Of West Texas.
Within the past week we have seen the reports of the Muslim Terrorist attacks on one British and one French soldier in their respective countries.Keep in mind that both France and England have been two of the European countries who have welcomed the believers in Islam with open arms. As I understand it, the French soldier was still alive but of course the British soldier was beheaded by two Muslim Terrorist Extremists.
Then on the following day, 5/24/13 I was listening to a morning news report when they played the tape of a 9-1-1 call to the Oregon State Police. In this audio a lady had called her local 9-1-1 responder which was the local Sheriff's Department and found that the Sheriff's Department was closed and no Deputy available at that hour and the call was forwarded to the State Police Operator. The lady told this operator that her ex-boyfriend was breaking in her home and she was alone and was afraid that he was going to harm her. According to the news report this boyfriend had beaten up this caller in the past.
The operator told this lady that she had no one to send and suggested that the lady ask this ex-boyfriend to just leave. WOW! What great advice.
Now, it seems as the reason for the Sheriff's Dept. being closed during certain hours was being blamed on the "Sequester" and lack of funds for this Oregon Sheriff's Department. I personally am surprised that they did not blame George Bush, whom we all know is responsible for Hurricane Katrina and many other mishaps.
BUT, the point of all three of these stories is this. England and France have laws which prohibit firearms ownership by most citizens,
much less the citizens being authorized to carry these firearms. And I am surprised that this dispatcher never even asked the lady in Oregon if she had a firearm in her home. I would have to believe that the answer would have been NO.
Now I am not saying that the attacks on those two soldiers could not have happened here in the U.S. BUT, I am saying that attacks such as these would probably incite bystanders to act a bit more aggressively than just filming the murder with their cell phones. I would imagine that an armed attacker in almost any location in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Oklahoma, North Dakota, South Dakota, Louisiana, Arkansas, Florida, and a number of other states would be met with armed resistance and the likelihood of them beheading anyone would be highly unlikely. BUT their being shot would be HIGHLY PROBABLE.
I just wonder if any of these three people who were victims of attacks would have had a Liberal/Progressive/Democrat/Socialist view of firearms possession by honest people? I will wager that they wouldn't.
BUT, the Obama Administration and the rest of the Socialist jerks in our country have the typical view that since they don't own or carry or desire to own a firearm that NOBODY should be able to do something other than what they approve.
AND, if they get their way, firearms ownership and self protection aren't the only things which will be taken from us.
A couple of days ago I was passing through one of our rooms and looked at the TV screen and thought that perhaps the Turner Classic Movie Channel or the A&E Channel were showing a repeat of the old Annette Funicello - Frankie Avalon movie, "Beach Blanket Bingo". Then I took a closer look and found that I was watching a news channel showing the new love affair between Barack Obama and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
I don't know how many people still believe that Chris Christie is a Conservative Republican, but I'll bet I could fit them all into a telephone booth.
I wonder just how many people in New Jersey really believe that Barack Hussein Obama really gives a damn about their particular problems?
It is amazing how many people watch this phony operator of the world's largest shell game make a television appearance in Oklahoma and actually believe that this vermin gives a damn about the people in Oklahoma which was maybe the reddest of the red states. I read in one report that not one single county in Oklahoma was carried by the Obama/Biden ticket in the 2012 election.
BUT apparently the voters in New Jersey, who seem to be confused as to what a Conservative Republican really looks like, are totally enamored by the appearance of the world's most articulate and intelligent human who shows up on the Jersey Shore for no other reason than a political one.
And of course in my estimation the love scenes between Barack Hussein Obama and Chris Christie are much more torrid than those between Frankie and Annette.
And no, I am not discussing the weight loss of the aforementioned Chris Christie. I am referring to the SIZE of our FEDERAL
We have all watched various politicians and members of the Mainstream Media tell us for several weeks that we can't expect Barack Hussein Obama OR Eric Holder OR the various musical chair directors of the IRS to know what every single person in their departments is doing.
REALLY? Funny, but I DO EXPECT these heads of government and governmental agencies to keep abreast of major investigations and of major
policy violations by the people working for them.
Do not in one sentence try to tell me that Barack Hussein Obama and Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano and Hillary Clinton and a myriad of other Obama appointees are the most efficient and knowledgeable people on the planet and in the next breath try to convince me that they are just folks like us who cannot be expected to be aware of everything going on under their supposed leadership.
The truth of the matter is that our federal government and the expanded bureaucracy promoted by the Obama Administration has, in fact gotten way out of hand and needs to be DOWNSIZED.
If you have been watching any of the reports of Benghazi; the IRS; and the Justice Department scandals then you will come to the same conclusion as me. First of all, I do not believe that Barack Hussein Obama has appointed ANYONE who would have the balls to make a major decision without first getting his approval.
Our government has grown way too many arms and legs and while I don't believe for a second that these scandals were put in motion without the knowledge and approval of Barack Hussein Obama there might not be any way to prove that he is culpable in any of them. That, of course depends upon his underlings having the guts to take the blame themselves. We shall see.
One thing that this administration is downsizing is our military. And, in my opinion, that is the one area where we can least afford to be short with the world situation being what it is today.
On May 27th, when all the banks and government offices were off for the Memorial Day Holiday, I was drinking coffee with a friend at a local coffee shop. A young man walked up to place an order and my friend told me to look what it said on this man's shirt. It had the name of a U.S. Military base and when the young man turned, my friend asked him if he had been stationed at that base and the young man answered, "Yes Sir". This was a young Hispanic man who looked to be in perhaps his early thirties. He was very clean cut looking and very articulate.
My friend told him that he had been stationed for awhile at that base during the Korean War. We learned that this young man had just been discharged from the U.S. Military after having served 12 years. We asked him about his reasons for leaving and he told us that he had to have some surgery on a tendon in his leg and that although his surgery had been successful he had been medically discharged, although he actually wanted to continue his career in the military. He said that his branch of service was caught in a move to DOWNSIZE and his position was abolished. Without asking him to commit to any political views we inquired as to his thoughts about the
downsizing of the U.S. Military and he was obviously dead set against it. He said that there were many people who did not wish to make the military their career who were still in the service. He was pretty disenchanted with the present situation regarding the leadership in the top levels of the U.S. Military. This young man had served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. It seems to me that there are a bunch of government which could do with a good dose of downsizing or complete elimination BUT NOT OUR MILITARY.

"What is a tax loophole? It is a provision in the law that allows an individual or an organization to pay less taxes than they would be required to pay otherwise. Since Congress puts these provisions in the law, it is a little much when members of Congress denounce people who use those provisions to reduce their taxes.".................THOMAS SOWELL

On May 23rd, Obama in one of his public appearances made a statement about respecting STATE SOVEREIGNTY in dealing with foreign countries. Wonder what his views are on the SOVEREIGNTY of the FIFTY STATES which compose our own country? It doesn't seem to me as if he is all that concerned with our individual states having any rights or input in governing the citizens of that state.
I imagine we have all heard the female supposed heckler interrupting Obama's speech and calling for the closure of the prison at Guantanamo. She went on ranting for a good while before she was removed from the room, at which time Obama said that we should all be listening to what that heckler had to say and that he supported what she said. First of all, I don't believe for a second that she was a dyed-in-the-wool, garden variety heckler. I am convinced that she was a PLANT in order to try and convince the American people that the prison in Guantanamo which holds ONLY TERRORISTS is a really important issue with the American people. Forgive me if I have the opinion that the vast majority of Americans don't give a damn about the prison OR its occupants.
I also listened to Obama make a comment about how the Muslim-American Community has sided with law enforcement in fighting Muslim Extremist Terrorists....... To that I politely say BULLS**T!
I don't know about the rest of you but if I have to listen to another in depth report of John McCain going to Syria to meet with the Syrian Rebel Leadership I will probably do like Michael Jackson in a Pepsi Commercial and burst into flames. The first few reports I heard made it sound like McCain had at great risk to himself gone deep into Syria to meet with the Syrian Rebel leadership to try and determine just what level of assistance the U.S. should give the rebel army.
A little later in the day one reporter said that the meeting location was LESS THAN A KILOMETER inside the Syrian border. Now I am not saying that going anywhere in Syria is not dangerous but I am of the same belief as retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and believe that we need to keep our asses out of that conflict lest we end up backing the same brand of folks we backed in Libya and Egypt. I guess what I am saying is that in Syria, I am not sure there is a right side. I feel sure that the Rebel leadership will be just as one sided and as hard on the Syrian people as is the turd who is now in power.
Please contact your elected Representatives and Senators and let them know in no uncertain terms that any weakness on their parts in the gun control debate will result in you working against them in their next bid for re-election. Right now, I am pretty darn pleased with Texas Senator Ted Cruz since he is being branded as a bully by Harry Reid. Of course I would imagine that in Harry Reid's eyes, Pee Wee Herman would be a bit of a bully. Reid is pure sissy in my opinion.
Oh, before I forget, I would like a show of hands from everyone who believes that George Zimmerman will receive a fair hearing in his
trial for shooting; "LITTLE TRAYVON MARTIN". I do hope his attorney does his job but I am forming the opinion that the District Judge
hearing this case is a liberal squawk which is not good for the Zimmerman team.
