Pete King Is Delusional

January 13, 2011

I’m listening to Rep. Pete King on Laura Ingraham at the moment and all I can say is “WOW!, This guy is delusional!”.
The man is talking about his proposal about ‘guns 1000ft from politicians’ and he is clueless. He’s convinced that he can tell who’s carrying a gun by “their facial expressions”.
This is a congressman, we’re doomed.

Tucson, Gun Control, Kooks and Libtards

January 12, 2011

So now, the crisis-parasites are proposing a bunch of unconstitutional new laws to make it MORE illegal to shoot politicians and people in the face. The libtards are HOWLING for new gun control laws. Some of these gems include the “no firearms within 1000ft of a politician” law brought to you by Rep. Pete King (RINO). I would LOVE to hear Peter King’s explanation as to how his proposed law would have prevented ANY assination attempts on any of the politician in American history. Assassins aren’t going to be stopped by a law that says “no guns within 1000ft” if they have already decided to break the “no killing people” law.
If anything, this idiot’s law would make the situation worse. The reason that so many people were killed in Tucson is due to the fact that no ‘good guys’ were carrying in the crowd to stop the further killings. No, the first few victims still wouldn’t have had a chance due to suprise but, alot less people would have been shot if some CHL holder had been in the crowd and could have taken the guy down.
So, if anything, gun control laws probably made this worse. I ask you, how many killing rampages take place on gun ranges?
The REAL cause of these rampages is how our society has declined and now puts victimization and the “self-esteem of rotten kids who develope an overly large sense of entitlement” on pedestals and in general, rewards bad behavior.

Another $58 million Dumped Down The Toilet

January 12, 2011

(CNSNews.com) – A clean energy company is closing its factory in Massachusetts, just two years after it opened the solar plant with about $58-million in taxpayer subsidies, the Boston Globe reported. Evergreen Solar calls itself a victim of weak demand and competition from cheaper suppliers in China.
The newspaper describes Evergreen Solar’s closing a major hit to Democratic Governor Deval Patrick’s efforts to make Massachusetts a hub of the emerging clean-energy industry.

Let’s All Watch Illinois Implode

January 12, 2011

So, Illinois just approved a 66% income tax increase during a depression. Let’s all watch as revenues decline over the next few years and taxPAYERS move away.

The average person just doesn’t get it, the government can tax us all at 100% and they will still spend 105% (Mark Levin)

Yeah yeah, I know there’s a 2% spending increase trigger in the law but I’m betting it will take less than two years for a new law to nullify that provision. The tax-lovers have their foot in the door.

Whoopie Is Lying Again…

January 12, 2011

Concerning Conservative speech: “When I was growing up – people talking – and saying things – whipping folks up – caused a lot of people to get lynched.”

So there it is… The race card. I wondered how long it would take to be played.

If Ms Johnson would please remember, it was the evil Republicans championing for the Blacks and the Democrats who wanted to keep them slaves.

The Myth Of Black Confederates?

January 11, 2011

Walter E. Williams writes-
One tragedy of war is that its victors write its history and often do so with bias and dishonesty. That’s true about our War of 1861, erroneously called a civil war. Civil wars, by the way, are when two or more parties attempt to take over the central government. Jefferson Davis no more wanted to take over Washington, D.C., than George Washington, in 1776, wanted to take over London. Both wars were wars of independence.

Kevin Sieff, staff writer for The Washington Post, penned an article “Virginia 4th-grade textbook criticized over claims on black Confederate soldiers,” (Oct. 20, 2010). The textbook says that blacks fought on the side of the Confederacy. Sieff claims that “Scholars are nearly unanimous in calling these accounts of black Confederate soldiers a misrepresentation of history.” William & Mary historian Carol Sheriff said, “It is disconcerting that the next generation is being taught history based on an unfounded claim instead of accepted scholarship.” Let’s examine that accepted scholarship.

In April 1861, a Petersburg, Va., newspaper proposed “three cheers for the patriotic free Negroes of Lynchburg” after 70 blacks offered “to act in whatever capacity may be assigned to them” in defense of Virginia. Ex-slave Frederick Douglass observed, “There are at the present moment, many colored men in the Confederate Army doing duty not only as cooks, servants and laborers, but as real soldiers, having muskets on their shoulders and bullets in their pockets, ready to shoot down … and do all that soldiers may do to destroy the Federal government.”

I just heard on the radio that Major Dick Winters has died. This makes me very sad.

It Begins: Europe Starts Seizing Private Retirements

January 4, 2011

People’s retirement savings are a convenient source of revenue for governments that don’t want to reduce spending or make privatizations. As most pension schemes in Europe are organised by the state, European ministers of finance have a facilitated access to the savings accumulated there, and it is only logical that they try to get a hold of this money for their own ends. In recent weeks I have noted five such attempts: Three situations concern private personal savings; two others refer to national funds.
