“I want the people of America to be able to work less for the government and more for themselves. I want them to have the rewards of their own industry. This is the chief meaning of freedom. Until we can reestablish a condition under which the earnings of the people can be kept by the people, we are bound to suffer a very severe and distinct curtailment of our liberty.” Calvin Coolidge
“Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it, misdiagnosing it, and then misapplying the wrong remedies.” Groucho Marx
“Screw me once, shame on you. Screw me twice, shame on me.” American saying
Isn’t it amazing how every time controversial issues sprout and there is finger pointing at the politicians that a crisis erupts like NEWTOWN? And now YOU the law abiding citizen is to blame and you should lamely surrender your right to keep and bear arms? The teeth to your liberty! A GOD GIVEN BIRTHRIGHT GUARANTEED BY THE CONSTITUTION! All we need to know about absolute gun control can be learned from Britain’s failed attempts….Britain is the most violence prone country in the European Union. But hey that would take effort on most people’s part TO LEARN something and stop being STUPID or just plain DAFT.
I guess I should apologize in advance because I am about to compare what many might think would be apples and avocadoes (remember this)….I am going to talk about politicians and people. Now the politicos (people on the public dole engaged in legitimized thievery who call what they do work), judges (those who enforce the rules of those engaged in public thievery), attorneys (those who mock defending those busted for defying the public thieves), and other elected folks, as well as just ordinary everyday people, might have reservations about being compared to each other. Many politicians consider themselves “not ordinary people” and the general populace is of course one of two classifications, disdainful of politicians or worshippers of politicians.
Myself, I disdain (something akin to dislike only worse) most politicians, attorneys, and elected folks, there are some, but few, exceptions. I am still looking for them. I am also not fond of stupid, lazy, or ignorant people. As I look around I see that stupidity and daft (stupid and unreachable) thought proliferates (means there is a bunch of em) the world over, or at least in DC. Would be petty tyrants think that they can rule an unwilling independent people and change human nature with just a few laws. People, unwilling to do anything about “it”, think that if they wait long enough things will change for the better.
We ourselves in Teller County have politicians who think that they will change the world by doing things “their way”. We have a Sheriff whose antics will no doubt cost us hundreds of thousands of dollars with at least two lawsuits that have been filed against the Sheriff’s Department. It’s just too bad the Sheriff probably won’t be held personally fiscally liable for his own daftness. That just means I wish that he would have to pay the whole sum of any monies awarded to the plaintiffs himself, instead of us “stupid” taxpayers who voted him into office.
The County Clerk, who has really screwed the pooch, on the election process and cost us “stupid” taxpayers, who voted her into office, a bunch of money because she doesn’t know how to pay the county’s taxes and bills on time. Soon we will have a new group of folks taking POWER in Teller County who think that they can make Teller County a “dry county” as far as marijuana is concerned. I applaud your efforts folks….but what did the voters say and you obviously haven’t done your homework on REVENUE development and if you haven’t noticed the state is looking at banning municipalities from banning marijuana sales. Isn’t that kind of like the stupid trying to control the ignorant? No, the STATE wants its revenues. Ever heard of the war on drugs….ONE BIG FAILURE! Go ahead, make useless new rules that nobody follows if it makes you feel better.
Chicago….here’s a news flash for ya’ll who wanna see “assault rifles” outlawed. More people, or as many people, were killed with baseball bats as with rifles, assault or otherwise, in Chicago last year. Most of the murders were committed with handguns….but of course it is absolutely a difficult task to kill as many people at one sitting with a baseball bat as with an assault rifle, or is it? So I hafta ask, “How are those weapons bans working for you Chicago”? And to think that the daft and stupid politicians really think that more laws will fix the situation. The results are in, the study has been completed….Chicago’s laws prohibiting the possession of firearms in the name of reducing gun violence…..ONE BIG FAILURE!
So as we all sit here watching the politicians spend money that we don’t have, screw our economy to the wall because people don’t know how to be self-sufficient, print money that doesn’t exist, and steal our future and our children’s future through inflation, and watch gun sales going crazy…I fear but one thing comes to mind. People who love politicians and the politicians they love are stupid.
I mean I really tried to give the political process a chance at least at the local level. I supported Polly Lawrence and introduced her to delegates and handed out some political campaign stuff for her. She always answered my calls and had an ear for what was going on, was friendly enough, and at least feigned (pretended) she was really concerned. After she won the election I attempted to call on several occasions to say congratulations, but, her being from Douglas County and me being a simple minded constituent from Teller County I guess, my calls were no longer worthy of being answered. My resulting attitude is so much for the political process and proper representation even at the local level from almost real people.
On other scenes the FBI considered the Occupy Wall Street movement a potential threat, it made some headlines around the country. Now zoom back to 2009 for a moment if you will. Do you remember the Department of Homeland Security report that was released and subsequently “leaked” in Missouri”? Well that document said returning war veterans were the biggest threat to US internal security. Folks, that would be called demonization…a tactic used by despotic/tyrannical government to make anyone who might present a problem to those in power and control, are made out to be a bad guy.
Well here is another real news flash for you! I would contend that Barrack Obama is a threat to internal security with his gun grabbing notion and his cuddly attitude with the Muslim Brotherhood. F-16 fighters and M1A1 tanks to Egypt, who is under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood and classifying the murders at Fort Hood Texas as workplace violence instead of a terrorist attack, how convenient, makes ya wonder. Now Barrack is entertaining a visit from Egypt’s President….the topic? It would appear that Egypt’s president wants the blind cleric released from prison. The same blind cleric who was part of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. It seems the poor old blind cleric man is suffering in prison. I am all about releasing the blind cleric….to a hog farm as slave labor.
I would suggest that General Patreaus is or was a threat to national security for leaking info to the Natalie Khawam who has strong ties with the Muslim brotherhood.
I would suggest that Hillary Clinton is a threat to national security for hiring Huma Abedin Weiner. In 1996, while Bill Clinton was president, he and Hillary met Huma while on a trip to Saudi Arabia. We don’t know how but Huma ended up in Washington DC with close ties to the Clintons. We now know she was Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s deputy Chief of Staff. This is a very sensitive position so we would think Huma was well vetted. Huma Abedin Weiner is a devout Muslim. Her brother, Hassan, works at the Oxford Center for Islamic Studies (OCIS) at Oxford University. He has close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood. The Egyptian Al-Azhar University is well known for a curriculum that encourages extremism and terrorism, and is active in establishing links with OCIS.
I would suggest that Janet Napolitano is a threat to national security for appointing Arif Alikhan to the Office of Policy Development at the Department of Homeland Security. Once Los Angeles’ deputy mayor of homeland security and public safety he now serves as an Assistant Secretary at DHS. Alikhan helped raise funds for an Islamic group that says deadly anti-U.S. terrorist attacks are legitimate operations, referred to terrorists as “freedom fighters”, and equated Muslim jihad with the sentiments of American statesman Patrick Henry…..WOW!
So have we gotten the picture? There is a lot more going on with the “gun grab” it isn’t about guns, it is about control. You simpleton slaves need to do the bidding of the government. The rest who won’t roll over get demonized.
So the anointed Barrack has been elected twice….well, screw you who voted for him again, and don’t worry he has plans for the rest of us too.
Is there a revolution coming? Hell, who knows. We already have a multi-pronged insurgency, a petty would be dictator at the highest levels of our corporately controlled fascist government who is demonizing those who cry foul, and a large part of the populace who is arming themselves along with the Department of Homeland Security who is arming itself…..sounds like a recipe for disaster….where it ends anyone knows. But there will be a lot of smashed apples and avocados (see comparison at beginning of article). The end result will be a mixture no one wants to eat. And now you know why I didn’t compare apples and oranges….the end result isn’t going to be a fruit salad you can show up with at grandma’s house with for Thanksgiving dinner. Speaking of Thanksgiving dinner, maybe the founding fathers should have followed Ben Franklin’s recommendation that we have the turkey as the national symbol for America. It seems that far more people are better represented by the humble turkey than the bald eagle.
So till next week, Mad Dog Murf remains the sheep dog on duty hoping more of you opt to be the guard dogs of liberty rather than just stupid or daft grazing sheeple. So if you find yourself offended by this article maybe you should examine your own modus operandi…maybe denying the truth is what hurts your feelings.
“The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.” Albert Einstein
“There are those in America today who have come to depend absolutely on government for their security. And when government fails they seek to rectify that failure in the form of granting government more power. So, as government has failed to control crime and violence with the means given it by the Constitution, they seek to give it more power at the expense of the Constitution. But in doing so, in their willingness to give up their arms in the name of safety, they are really giving up their protection from what has always been the chief source of despotism — government.” –Ronald Reagan
“One loves to possess arms, though they hope never to have occasion for them.” –Thomas Jefferson
