"[T]o preserve ... independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude." --Thomas Jefferson, 1816
Tomorrow is election day. If you haven't voted yet, be sure to do so.
New York City Mayor Bloomberg has shown his gun hating spots once again. Now he is demanding that the National Guard stay out because, OMG, they carry guns. It's pretty bad when your hoplophobia is so bad you won't even trust the military. One of the groups he claims should be the only ones armed. Now he's decided that the only ones he trusts are the NYPD. http://nation.foxnews.com/bloomberg/2012/11/03/report-bloomberg-denied-national-guard-assistance-brooklyn-because-their-possession-guns
The people are having a tough time with no power and water, yet bloomers is turning away help from the military. Looters are stealing everything they can get their hands on and the subjects of NYC aren't allowed the best tools to defend themselves. The only thing I can say to the people that live there is this, You elected this asshole not once, not twice, but three times. He has stuck his nose in almost every aspect of your lives and wants to do the same for me. I'm sorry that you are sitting cold and hungry in the dark. I truly am. But the situation that your Mayor has caused by denying the NG's help is a bed you made.
Here's Bill Whittle with some more great insight.
Did I mention that tomorrow is election day? Remember the 2 Americans and over 300 Mexicans murdered by the guns this administration allowed to be smuggled to Mexico in the name of "under the radar" gun control.
Of course Executive privilege was struck down in US v Nixon. When is Congress going to demand answers and sue to get the thousands of documents released?
Holder is still claiming he didn't know anything about it. I call bullshit. I find it hard to believe that a lowly government employee would give the go ahead for something like fast and furious without orders from higher up. The cover up continues.
Chicago, at the end of last month, tied the record for the nunber of murders from 2011.
How are those restrictive gun laws working for you there Rahm? I guess I wouldn't be worried either if I was surrounded by armed bodyguards 24 hours a say. One high point is that most of it is thug on thug. It's a shame they don't learn how to shoot better so we have less innocents injured and killed. A record to be proud of. Since Illinois is the only state that has no provision for carrying arms for self defense and it's almost impossible to own a gun in Chicago, why the high murder rate? Maybe the criminals don't care what the law says.
Maybe this election the people that don't live in Chicago will elect enough people that believe in freedom to over ride what Rahm and company want and they will get a good carry law.
I finally got to read Unintended Consequences by John Ross. If you get a chance give it a read. If you've already read it, read it again. I got engrossed and couldn't put it down except for having to do silly things, like work. Be sure to read the Enemies trilogy by Matt Bracken too.
Don' forget to vote if you haven't already and remember what Obama thinks of our Country.
