I couldn’t help but post this video. FYI there is some vulgar language.

If you’ve not seen it, a bunch of Hollywood d-bags made a video demanding a “solution” to assault weapons. In this video they show what hypocrites these idiots are.

Just another example of liberal hypocrisy. If you make a living off pretending to kill people don’t act like gun violence is your number one enemy. Hollywood has turned into the cesspool of the world and they have the balls to act high and mighty about guns? Wonder what they got paid to do this crappy video?

    Christmas Time In The Real World

    Posted: December 25, 2012 in Rant Time
    Tags: ,

    Warning: this is not exactly my usual political post!

    Well, Christmas is over and most people have been spending time with their families, as I have. But now that it’s over we all go back to our own normal lives. We take down the decorations, finish off the leftovers, and break in our newest possessions. As we leave behind our day of family, friends, and feasts, it is important to reflect on our blessings this Christmas and, since we are closing on years end, our blessings for this year.

    While I was devouring a baked ham at my mother’s house, something that is a blessing in and of itself, some family was digging in a dumpster. While I was having a late Christmas Eve lunch with my dad, some young boy was missing his father who is away fighting terrorism. While I ate an early Christmas breakfast at my wife’s grandmother’s house, someone was mourning the loss of their grandparent. While I was exchanging gifts at my mother-in-law’s house, some mother was remembering a child, tragically lost.

    I don’t mean to be a downer, but I feel that it’s important to keep the poor, hungry, and lonely on our minds, even while enjoying our own blessings. Some people go through life never reaching such a low at Christmas, and for those people it must be harder to contemplate that hardship.

    For me, at the end of the year, I like to look back at how far I’ve come over the last few years. I have to say that, as far as the big four, not much has changed. I still live in the same apartment, in the same town. I still work for the same company. I still drive my ole Chevy. And, of course, I still have the same lovely wife.

    But, though these things matter, it’s the small things that make life worth living. My apartment has nicer things in it. I received, somewhat, of a promotion at work. My ole Chevy is a little ole-er. And, of course, my lovely wife is more beautiful by the day.

    Even though I have nothing to complain about I can’t help thinking about the people who aren’t as fortunate as I am. Now I’m not the kind of person to say someone who is having a hard time is “less fortunate”, because I believe that quite a few of the “less fortunate” aren’t unfortunate, only “less capable of making good choices”. The people I consider less fortunate are the children who are born to unwed single moms in the “ghetto” or the parents who gave all they could to their children only to have them taken away by senseless violence perpetrated by a mad man.

    With all the bad news of the last year there is plenty to feel bad about, but that also means there is plenty to be thankful for, and without the bad the good doesn’t seem quite so great.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

    There have been rumblings that Senator Kerry was in the running for Secretary of Defense for the last month or so, but it seems now that Obama will nominate him for Secretary of State. Since we were all duped by Obama in 08 because no one knew anything about him, I’ve decided to dig a little on Kerry.

    John Forbes Kerry was born in Denver, CO in 1943. He grew up in Europe, living in Berlin until going to a Swiss boarding school at age 11. After getting his B.A. at Yale he served in the Navy as a Lieutenant from 1966-1970.

    Sen. Kerry served in Vietnam as a gunboat officer on the Mekong Delta, and was awarded the Silver Star, and the Bronze Star, but left the fight early after receiving his third Purple Heart. His third was what you may call a “Band-Aid” Purple Heart, that is, it was just a little scratch. Most of the brave men who fought in Vietnam, after getting two Purple Hearts would ignore a small wound so that they could stay and fight with their brothers-in-arms. That would be the honorable thing to do.

    Kerry on the other hand leaped at the chance to get outta dodge. Not only did he take his out, when he got home he joined the VVAW. (Vietnam Veterans Against the War) He left the fight and actually said that American soldiers were more of a threat to America than Communism. He called our soldiers terrorists.

    When campaigning for the Democrat candidate for governor of California in 2006 Kerry had this to say about our military

    “You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”

    Basically calling anyone who joins the military stupid.

    Back in 1971 he made headlines at a D.C. protest for throwing his medals over the fence to the Capital lawn. This makes him sound like a real anti-war guy and someone who holds fast to his beliefs. The fact that he later admitted that the medals were not his own, may diminish that impression.

    After one unsuccessful run for Congress in 1972 he went on to become a lawyer. He has had five terms in the Senate and one failed presidential campaign since, and to this day continues to be a real douche.

    Every once and a while I like to torture myself by listening to Ed Schultz, or some other liberal goober, while I’m at work. Today was one of those days and the “hot topic” is an “assault weapons ban”.

    I listened to Ed’s callers say everything from the NRA should be treated like a terrorist organization, to one guy who said he is so upset about the violence that he would go along with any law that might put an end to school shootings.

    I really don’t understand how people can be so ignorant. These people are willing to let our rights be slowly eroded out of the fear that the media is pushing.

    When we start letting the federal government restrict our rights to “keep us safe” where will it stop? If it is ok to chip away the second amendment because it will keep us all safe, what’s next?

    I’m sure a lot of you have seen these facts before, but being that I like to look back in history when talking about present issues, I’ll share them again.

  • In 1911 Turkey enacted “gun control” and from 1915-1917 around 1.5 million Armenians were slaughtered
  • Soviet Russia established “gun control” in 1929, subsequently, an estimated 20 million “enemies of the state” were rounded up and killed from 1929-1953
  • Under the Nazis, Germany initiated “gun control” in 1938, which lead to the elimination of over 13 million Jews, gays, mentally ill, union leaders, Catholics, and political opponents from 1938-1945
  • Between 1948 and 1953, China rounded up and murdered 20 million dissidents after establishing “gun control” in 1935
  • If you were an educated person in Cambodia from 1975-1977 then you must be dead, because after locking in “gun control” in 1956 over a million “educated” people were killed
  • “Gun control” came to Guatemala in 1964. From 1964-1981 over 100,000 Mayan Indians were hunted down and killed
  • Uganda bought into “gun control” in 1970, in less than a decade, 300,000 people were murdered for their Christian faith
  • What do these people have in common? All 56,000,000 of them were murdered in the last century and were unable to defend themselves because of “gun control”.

    The government should not be allowed to put an “assault weapons” ban in place because we have those weapons to protect ourselves from the government. Don’t let the government tell you what’s best for you. Don’t be another sheep that follows along, all the way to slaughter.

    Anyone who reads my writing knows that I’m not afraid to discuss the race issue and I do, quite regularly. Gov. Nikki Haley’s appointment of Congressman Tim Scott to the retiring South Carolina Senator, Jim DeMint’s seat in the Senate has raised some concern from the NAACP.

    Being that Congressman, soon to be Senator, Scott will be the only black person in the Senate, since 2010, you may think that the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People would be proud. Not so fast, the problem is Tim Scott is a Tea Party Republican. The NAACP is “concerned” that he won’t tow the line, and take his orders from them.

    It is well known what this “civil rights” organization thinks of the Tea Party movement. In a 2010 report they called the movement a platform for anti-Semites, racists, and bigots. Even knowing that in 2010, at Tea Party events liberal organizations were planting people in the crowds with racist signs for their cameras, and that the Tea Party is more diverse than the Democrats and Republicans, the movement has still been repeatedly labeled as the opposite.

    On the issue of racism in the Tea Party Scott told CBS News, in 2010, “There are good people and bad people in all organizations fundamentally however, when you look at the basis of the Tea Party it has nothing to do with race. It has to do with an economic recovery.”

    “Certainly I feel like I’m the tip of the arrow at times because certainly the national media wants to talk about the fact that I’m a black Republican and some people think of that as zany that a black person would be a conservative but to me what is zany is any person black, white, red, brown or yellow not being a conservative,” Scott said then.

    The Daily Caller caught up with Hilary Shelton, senior vice president for advocacy and policy at the NAACP, Monday.

    “It is important that we have more integration in the U.S. Senate,” said Shelton in a phone interview. “It’s good to see that diversity.”

    “Mr. Scott certainly comes from a modest background, experience, and so forth, and should be sensitive to those issues,” he said, referring to Scott’s impoverished single-parent upbringing in Charleston, SC.

    “Unfortunately, his voting record in the U.S. House of Representatives raises major concerns,” Shelton said.

    Shelton went on to explain that the NAACP platform is crafted through an annual voting process which engages grassroots-level delegates who then vote on the group’s national agenda. That agenda calls for an expansive role for federal government spending in black communities.

    Shelton said that the NAACP is worried that Scott won’t promote that agenda, since he “has demonstrated a record of opposition to civil rights protection and advancing those real issues of concern of the NAACP’s noted African-American community.”

    It seems to me that the NAACP is only in favor of diversity when it works in their favor. Shelton went on to talk about trying to convert Scott to the dark side their side.

    While the NAACP focuses on the down side of a black conservative I feel the overwhelming pride in how far we have come in the 150 years since slavery. Tim Scott will be the Senator for a district that includes Fort Sumter, where the first shots of the War of Northern Aggression were fired, in the state that was the first to succeed. Also worth mentioning he will be holding the Senate spot once held by the late Strom Thurmond, one of the few Republican segregationists.

    That’s right, now you have to claim your tooth fairy income on your taxes and pay 10% to the IRS. Thanks to Obamacare.

    20121216-110226.jpg

    Not really,

    Actually, as of January 1 your medical tax rate (if you are under 65) will jump from 7.5 to 10% of gross income.

    You can thank Obamacare for that. That’s only part of the tax increases to be imposed on the middle class to pay for Obamacare. Remember that whole, “I won’t raise any taxes on the middle class” bit? Yea same ole song and dance in the White House.

    It’s not really my style to post or comment about things like this but I would like to share my thoughts on this shooting in Connecticut.

    I’ll start with the most obvious thing, this is definitely a tragedy and my thoughts and prayers have been on the lives that were thrown away and the grieving families that will have to start a new year with a hole in their hearts.

    That being said..

    Anytime you have a tragedy of this nature you have all the other generic responses. You have a wide range of solutions thrown up, only to be forgotten in a few weeks time.

    On the left there are the people damning the violent culture we have in America and the guns. Where as on the right, you have the argument that there should no “gun-free zones”. Then in the middle you have the people who look to the left, then the right, and shrug their shoulders and say, “I don’t know, we should legalize pot.”

    Anyone who reads my writing knows that I’m a staunch conservative. As far as my opinion on “gun control” goes, it’s mostly a right leaning viewpoint. Anything that looks to me like the government restricting law-abiding citizens from owning or possessing firearms will raise my cackles. However, I do think that there is room for improvement on controlling who can legally possess a firearm. I’m hearing on the news that this 20 year old kid had a history of mental problems and that the weapons he used were taken from his mother, who he also killed. I don’t know what can be done to prevent a woman with a mentally unstable son form owning guns but even the NRA supports somewhat stricter gun control. Closing some gun show loop holes, for example.

    I’d also like to see “gun-free-zones” go by the wayside. If you think about it, all these shootings take place in “gun-free-zones”. The only people who abide by those laws, like any other law, are the people who obey the law and won’t be shooting people down for sport.

    I don’t know when Americans will start looking at history and learning from it. I could go into a rant about what happens in countries that outlaw guns but I’ll save that for another day. Let’s just look at our own history when it comes to prohibition. When you hear “prohibition”, alcohol is probably the first thing that comes to mind. If you remember correctly the prohibition of alcohol, nation wide, lead to the rise of the mafia, which eventually lead to the abolition of prohibition. Now with the “war on drugs” we still have people doing drugs, but we also have “ganstas” making money off of it. Which is slowly leading to the legalization of Mary Jane.

    With this in mind, what do you think will happen if we do eventually ban the possession of firearms by citizens? The citizens will turn over their guns, but the bad guys will still be able to get guns and then the people won’t be able to defend themselves. It doesn’t matter what law you put on the books, people will still break it, laws don’t stop some people.

    Just something to think about.

    I’m angry with the GOP and I need to let off some steam, so it’s time for a rant.

    I’m not mad at conservatives, I’m mad at the Republican establishment. They lost the election and now they are trying to blame it on being too conservative. That’s the biggest crock I’ve heard since Obama blamed Benghazi on YouTube.

    We ran Mitt freakin’ Romney, how much more moderate can you be? If he leaned any farther left he’d fall over. It’s almost like the Republicans have decided “if ya can’t beat ’em, join ’em”. If anything we lost because he was too “moderate”.

    What they seem to not comprehend is that conservatism wasn’t the problem. One of the real problems in this election was the campaign’s failure to get out the vote. Even though every minority group in America had an increase in votes from 2008, 7 million less white males went to the polls in November. That could have made the difference.

    Romney’s campaign’s second problem was it’s utter failure to get their message out. With the majority of the mainstream news and Hollywood in the Obama camp, Romney really needed to be creative in putting out his message, by utilizing all the different social media hubs and with a good ground game. Though they did try Obama just completely out did them. He had Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube on lockdown. He had countless celebrities, you know those people that play pretend and get worshiped like demy gods, tweeting and pumping out videos. All I ever saw of Romney on YouTube was someone else making fun of him, and his Twitter game was terrible.

    Another problem, maybe the biggest one, was that Romney-Ryan just didn’t dumb down their message for the average American. (Ignorant and lazy) You can’t expect a nation of government educated people to figure things out for themselves. Obama’s message was dumbed down to the point that even the “Obama-phone Lady” understood it. “everybody, no, minority in Clevelan’ got Obama-phone. He gave us phone, he go’ do mo’. Keep Obama in president, you know?” Yep that sums it up, couldn’t have said it better myself. If you dot think most people who voted for Obama are idiots just bing some of the “man-on-the-street” interviews where the guys ask people about the issues but either reverse Obama and Romney or don’t tell them who’s policy they are agreeing with until the end.
    (As a side note: It amazes me that most people carry around, in their pockets, a device that can give them practically any information known to man, in an instant, and most use it look at pictures of cats. It’s basically like you have a complete library, containing everything man has accomplished, ever, and using it to look at porn.)

    Then you have the debates where Romney and Ryan tried to stick to the message and the facts verses Obama who kept repeating his lies and Biden who just laughed like a jackass and regurgitated the rhetoric that he was spoon fed, and the people who actually watched it, ate it up, and licked their plate clean.

    So taking all that in, it seems like the problem wasn’t with conservatives, the problem was the failure to educate the voters, not to mention the extreme media bias and Obama’s celebrity status that people love so much these days.

    In yet another attempt by the United States to buy friends, we are sending Egypt 20 F-16s as a part of a $1 billion aid deal. A deal that was made in 2010 before Hosni Mubarak was overthrown.

    Despite Mohamed Morsi, the former head of the Islamic Brotherhood before being “elected” “president” of Egypt, attempting to grab dictatorial powers last month, and now pushing through a new Egyptian constitution that would strictly enforce Islamic Shariah law, there have not even been any threats to cut military aid. He has also proclaimed the right to send tanks against anyone who opposes him, and the right to call in the military to arrest protesters without charges.

    Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla) criticized U.S. military aid to Egypt saying, “The Obama administration wants to simply throw money at an Egyptian government that the president cannot even clearly state is an ally of the United States.”

    It’s now known that weapons sent to Egypt in 2010 found their way into terrorist hands in Libya before the Benghazi attacks. Does Obama not know this, or does he just not care? What do you think?
