Winston Churchill said
Si Vis Paceum Para Bellum

Sam Adams, more than beer

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen”
Samuel Adams

Lincoln on power

"We must prevent these things being done, by either congresses or courts — The people — the people — are the rightful masters of both Congresses, and courts — not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it —" Abraham Lincoln

Where has my country gone?

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, United States Declaration of Independence.

The ass holes in Washington need to get some history books and read up on a little war that took place 235 years ago. A bunch of shop keepers and farmers took on the world’s greatest super power and put them in their place. Think it can't happen again? Just remember, there are 80 million gun owners in this country. Most of them believe in the Constitution and believe it to be the law of the land. And a lot of them have had enough. It's about time to run all the posers and wannabe kings out of DC and take our country back to a place where the Constitution is the supreme law and our rights are again secure. Throw the U.N. out of this country and secure our borders. Pull all of our troops out of places like Germany and Japan. If they want to duke it out. Let them have at it. If Germany wants to invade France again, have a good time. If North Korea wants to take over South Korea, have a good time.

We put up with the invasion of our country because the bunch of crooks we have elected refuse to seal off our borders. There are over 30 million illegal aliens in the country and the number grows more every day. But as long as the government allows this to go on, their corporate sponsors will keep benefiting from the cheap labor. It's time to start locking up the CEO's and every other HR executive and shop Forman that allows this to go on. If we start holding the people in charge responsible, the illegals will not be able to find work and they will go back to where ever it is they came from. We could take all of the troops we have spread across the world and our borders would be secure.

Some history. On Saturday, 12 August 1961, the leaders of the GDR attended a garden party at a government guesthouse in Döllnsee, in a wooded area to the north of East Berlin, at which time Ulbricht signed the order to close the border and erect a wall.

At midnight, the police and units of the East German army began to close the border and by Sunday morning, 13 August 1961, the border with West Berlin was closed. East German troops and workers had begun to tear up streets running alongside the border to make them impassable to most vehicles, and to install barbed wire entanglements and fences along the 156 km (97 miles) around the three western sectors and the 43 km (27 miles) which actually divided West and East Berlin.

Don’t tell me our borders can’t be secured. If the communists 48 years ago could do it, why can’t we, with all our manpower and technology do the same thing? We shouldn’t be apologizing to one of the most corrupt governments in the world. We should be rounding up their citizens that seem to be lost and help them home. The problem they have in Mexico with the drug lord is their problem. It is our fault that the drug lords have automatic weapons. It’s our fault because our own government is the biggest arms dealer in the world. We ship hundreds of thousand full automatic M16s to Mexico for their army and they end up in the hands of corrupt politicians that sell them to the drug lords. The other source for their arms is the overseas black market. You can go to the Middle East and buy a full auto AK47 for $200.00. They smuggle those into the country by the container full. Obama going to Mexico and making some treaty that is going to infringe on my rights is a load of BULLSHIT. I’m to blame for Mexico’s problems because I’m a re-loader? Or because I’m a gun owner. Hey Mr. President, Your dead buddy Kennedy has killed more people that all the guns I have ever owned. I’m not the criminal. Most of the criminals I have ever met live in Washington DC. They are called politicians. That’s how we spell criminal in fly over country. You know that place you have to go every few years to appease the peasants. Someplace you stay away from as much as possible. Here in the heart land where we still believe in law and order and The Constitution. At least most of us do. That would be the ones that didn’t drink the kool-aide you were serving up. Those of us that still think for them aren’t buying the communist claptrap you’re peddling. Some of us are smarter than that.

Here’s a novel idea Mr. President. Instead of running all over the world and kissing the ass of every tyrant and despot you can find, why you don’t stay home and act like the leader of the greatest country in the world. Right now, the only place we need to be involved is Afghanistan. We need to be there until we root out and kill every terrorist we can find. Fill those smart bombs full of napalm and fly them right down the rat holes to the rats. You fill enough holes in those mountains with burning gas and I guarantee that you will get rid of Bin Laden and a whole bunch of his buddies. And if you think we are going to have world peace? Guess again. As long as there are two people in this world, they will find something to fight about. So let all of those radicals over there in that hell hole kill each other off. As long as they are doing that, they aren’t killing Americans.

Gun Owners Tell Mayors The Truth About "Mayors Against Illegal Guns"

When New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino--both virulently anti-gun mayors--formed a new anti-gun group a few years ago, they envisioned the creation of a powerful force to lobby for new gun control laws. But in assembling their coalition, they failed to take two important things into account: first, the response of gun owners to this new threat, and second, that many mayors would not take kindly to being misled regarding the real purpose of Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG.) Over the past few years, even as they continue to claim they are only concerned with “illegal” guns, MAIG has worked to impose new restrictions on law-abiding gun owners by regulating guns shows, supporting reckless lawsuits against the firearm industry, and opposing the right of self-defense for law-abiding Americans with carry permits. Mayor Bloomberg, who sets the agenda for this radical group, is dedicated to the passage of highly restrictive gun laws. In an appearance on “Meet the Press,” Bloomberg announced that he would raise money to counter the influence of the NRA.

There’s a good reason people call Bloomberg “Bloomingidiot” He’s a whack job. He’s running NYC into the ground and it seems like he want’s to take other cities with him. Our own Mayor, the Hon. Frank Cownie has fallen for bloomys crap. All law abiding citizens should write and call the Mayor and ask him to resign from this obviously anti-freedom organization. Bloomberg doesn’t want to control crime. He want’s to control guns and the honest people. If crime was under control he wouldn’t have that issue to put in front of the people. And why do the people of NYC keep re-electing this fool anyway?

A number of mayors have provided the same reason for leaving the group: MAIG was not what they represented themselves to be. In her letter of resignation, Mayor Patricia Shontz (R) of Madeira Beach, Florida wrote, “I am withdrawing because I believe the MAIG is attempting to erode all gun ownership, not just illegal guns. Additionally, I have learned that the MAIG may be working on issues which conflict with legal gun ownership.” She goes on to add, “It appears the MAIG has misrepresented itself to the Mayors of America and its citizens. This is gun control, not crime prevention.” Mayor Shontz’s concerns were echoed by Mayor Josh Nowotarski (D) of Mount Penn, Pennsylvania, who wrote, “I recently learned of the misrepresentations of the group and regret having joined in the first place.” These sentiments were shared by a number of other mayors who have removed their name from the MAIG list.

And yet, our Mayor has not resigned. Someone that is supposed to be for the people. We don’t have near the crime problem that they have in NYC. That’s because here in Des Moines a honest law abiding citizen can get a permit to carry a firearm. His continued membership in this anti-rights group is a affront to those of us that believe in personal freedom and responsability. He’s showing us that he doesn’t care one bit for the people.

Bloomberg is well known for his antics in trying to sue gun manufacturers. The most regulated business in the country. His audacity is only second to his idiocy. He even want’s the State of New York to change their laws on term limits so he can be Mayor for life.

If your mayor is listed, contact the Mayor’s office and let them know the truth about MAIG and ask them to resign. If they say they are on the list in error, let them know they need to contact MAIG and have their name removed. If your mayor agrees that MAIG is not a group that he or she wants to belong to, encourage your mayor to resign and let NRA-ILA know that they have done so. Help your mayor make the right choice between protecting our Second Amendment rights or continuing to be associated with those who actively oppose and undermine your firearms freedom.

Hre’s how you can contact the Mayor.

675 Harwood Drive

Des Moines, IA 50312

Home Phone: (515) 255-3644

City Hall Phone: (515) 283-4944

Lets flood his e-mail and keep his secretary busy with the phone calls. It’s funny that the only other Mayor in Iowa is Cedar Rapids. Iowa City, that bastion of liberalism isn’t even participating.

Here’s where you can see all the current members, members that have quit, and Mayors listed as members that are not Mayors of the locations listed. The fun part is the member Mayors arrest and conviction section. It’s no wonder some of these Mayors don’t want to control criminals. They might end up in the same cell. That’s just too funny.

McCain-Finegold is unconstitutional

From a editorial in todays Register

The First Amendment is based on the principle that the truth will emerge from a vigorous debate in the public marketplace of ideas. There is no place for the government to choose which speakers can participate in that debate.

McCain-Finegold should be struck down as unconstitutional. Where does the government get off telling anyone, even a corporation what they can and cannot say. The 1st Amendment is not selective. The Supreme Court would be wise to act on this. It's time to show these politicians that the Constitution is more than a bunch of words on a old piece of paper.

The 1st amendment is a absolute right that is given by God. The Bill of rights does not give any rights. It protects the rights that everyone is born with from a government that would control every thought and every move we make. Congress is forgetting that they serve at our pleasure. It's time for a major house cleaning and send people like McCain and Finegold packing. The government is getting too big and is wanting more and more control over what we do and say. It's time to clean house, starting from the top down. Especially Obama's 30+ czars that answer to no one. Most of them don't even have to be approved by the Senate. Government is supposed to be accountable to "WE THE PEOPLE".

Next year we are going to elect the whole of the House of Represenetives and 1/3 of the Senate. It time to start listening to candidates other tha the encumbants. It's time we threw a bunch of these carrer politicians out. They are only there because of the power the can wield over the "commoners". It is past the time for us to take our country back. Of course most of them will be re-elected because everyone thinks thier congresscritter is doing a fine job. It's all the others that are the problem. This is the attitude that keeps all these people entrenched in thier positions.

Look at the health care debate. What ever they come up with, it will not apply to them. Why is that? If it's good enough for us, why isn't it good enough for them? Because they have thier own special plan. a plan that takes care of them for the rest of thier lives. Why would they give that up. They will force something on us that may or may not be a good plan, yet they won't join in. That proves that they don't care about "WE THE PEOPLE" at all. Give the masses something to shut them up so we can go back to our overseas junkets and high dollar vacations.
