Democrats and Liberals are Mentally Ill

According to a Veteran Psychiatrist, liberal thinking individuals actually suffer from a mental disorder. They are Mentally Ill. An acclaimed veteran psychiatrist is making a case that the ideology motivating liberals is actually a mental disorder.  To my thinking, that makes a lot of sense. I don’t know how many times I have heard a liberal democrat, like Debbie Wasserman Schultz or even Hillary Clinton, making statements that just seem 180 degrees out of phase and I think, “How can she say that? It’s so not so.  She’s totally backward.”  But with Hillary we know that she believes that if you keep saying the same lie over and over that eventually the people will believe it.  That propensity though, may be linked to the problem described here.

Dr. Lyle Rossiter, is author of the new book, “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness”, Liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded. He says, Continue reading

Governor Brown Signs 6 New Gun Control Bills

Governor Moonbeam Removed Some More of Our Freedoms

Governor BrownOn this 4th of July weekend and Holiday, we here in the Socialist State we refer to as the People’s Republik of Kalifornistan, we get to also celebrate the loss of some more of our Freedom; Freedom that we thought was guaranteed by our Constitution and the Second Amendment. But when the people continue to vote Democrat they elect a Legislature that is 2 to 1 Democrat to Republican. As a result the Liberal Gun Grabbers are undeterred. The Republicans can do nothing and they watch the Dems, our Moral Superiors, pass whatever gun control law they want, no matter how much it infringes on our Second Amendment Right. And with an Uber Liberal Democrat Governor, Jerry Brown, they get signed into law at about the same ratio.

This is now Illegal

This is now Illegal

This weekend we celebrate the loss of our AR-15s, AR-10s, AKs and so on.  On Friday before the 4th of July weekend, Governor Moon Beam signed Continue reading

The U. S. A. is Number ONE – in Gun Ownership

Proof Positive for the Liberal Left Antis that we need to Ban Guns.

Every time there is a horrific mass gun killing like we had in Orlando, the rabid left wing of our countries political governance, starts immediately crying for more gun control. They pull out their arsenal of agenda topics, their most favorite rant, Gun Control. House Sit-in (3)This time the Liberals in the House of Representatives weighed in, apparently thinking they were back in the ’60s, as they staged a meaningless and embarrassing “sit in” on the floor of the House.  They point to our sick, twisted obsession with personal gun possession in this country, our fanatical gun culture that is embarrassing to them when compared to their socialist European friends with highly superior gun control laws. We must be the most murdering country in the world, especially after Orlando.

So if we look at the statistics you would expect to find us at the top of the list. Any yes, according to statistics for 2014, the United States tops the list in Glory. We are indeed ranked number 1 in the world with gun ownership at 90 guns per 100 people or .9 per person.  Foam FingerIf you had a random gathering of 1000 people, and you got an honest tally of how may guns they own among them, according to the statistics you would find 900 guns in the crowd. Amazing. The next country does not even come close with almost half as many guns at 58.2 guns per 100 people and that would be Serbia. Even Switzerland, where gun ownership almost required, is ranked fourth behind us with only 45.7 guns per 100 people.

There you have it. Something of which Rick Wyatt, Paige Wyatt and the entire crew at Gunsmoke Guns would be proud.  It is proof positive that the United States with their fanatical obsession with guns tops the list by far and we have far too many guns. This is surely evidence to the Progressive Left that they surely do live in the murder capital of the world with 90 guns per 100 residents. We must be the most murderous country in the world with those numbers.

So using Liberal gun thinking, all we have to do to prove the left wing Progressive case for banning guns is look at the Per Capita Intentional Homicide statistics for the murder rate in the world. Surely we must top that list as well. We should be number 1 again. Right?  Wrong.  We are      Continue reading

Should We Just Give Up Our Rights? Surrender Our Guns?

Today, a week after the horrific slaughter in Orlando, the battle lines have clearly been drawn. Problem is, the Liberal Democrats seem to be better at staying focused on their agenda and hype. They seem to keep the drum beat for Gun Control banging in every direction you look.

The Liberals want to take the guns out of our hands and the Republicans believe we need to fight the war to defeat terrorism – “Militant Islamic Terrorism”.

Obama at PodiumThe idea of people walking around with concealed carry weapons is abhorrent to our President.  Obama actually said “the notion that the answer to this tragedy would be to make sure that more people in a nightclub are similarly armed to take out the killer defies common sense.”, – his words.  More correctly, his statement defies common sense.  People with their own weapons in the club could have     Continue reading

Peruta v. San Diego Loses En Banc

Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Shoots Down Suit to Outlaw California Concealed Carry Law

The Gun Grabbing Libs Had to Lie, Cheat and Steal to Get This One

“There is no truth in the law. Everybody lies. Stop searching for it.” — Al Pacino, “Misconduct”

I was watching Fox News last night when they Constitution & Gavelsuddenly broke from the story they had going, to discuss the decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that had just been handed down.  They broke to get opinions from two panelists they had set up in front of a camera.  In keeping with the Fox motto of “Fair and Balanced” they had one who is pro guns and a gun grabber type.  After explaining the decision had finally been released after about a year and describing how the Court held that the ‘Good Cause’ requirement in California’s Law was ruled to be Constitutional, they broke to get opinions from their two panelists.

I have to admit that I probably didn’t hear a word that either one of them said. My mind was fixated on how under handed, deceitful and dishonest the cheating liberals are.  And this is no exception.  We gun carriers had finally won one last year when the first ruling had opined that the California Law that requires one to have a “good cause” was unconstitutional.  It made sense to us. After all, what part of “shall not be infringed” do they not understand. Requiring someone to show     Continue reading

Gun Free Zones Kill, Again – This Time 4 Marines in Chattanooga

This keeps happening and yet it is predictable, and to some degree preventable. Our lawmakers and politicians continue to believe that our society needs what they call “gun free zones”, ostensibly to keep guns out of the building, arena, or gathering place. But gun free zones are becoming known as “killing zones”.

A few weeks ago, we reported about a senseless shooting in Charleston, S.C. This time the location is in Chattanooga, TN where a Muslim man shot through the windows of a military recruiting station located in a strip mall. Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a naturalized American citizen, born in Kuwait, with citizenship in Jordan, woke up in the morning and decided that this form of terrorism, shooting up two military centers with an AK-47, would be appropriate for his unknown cause. He paid for it with his life.

According to Sgt. 1st Class Robert Dodge,     Continue reading

Gun Free Zones Kill – Now 9 in Charleston, S.C.

Once again liberal law makers have put their own constituents in harm’s way and the unthinkable has happened – 9 innocent victims were needlessly massacred while studying the Bible at their church. When are they going to realize that so called “gun free zones” are no less than a “killing zone” for some gun free killing zonedrugged up or mentally ill wacko who is looking to kill innocents and be assured that no one there will be carrying a weapon and be able to stop him? When are they going to realize that these same wackos intentionally look for gun free zones to carry out their evil plans?

I suppose it’s possible that lawmakers may not even know that they have created a ‘killing zone’ out of a church, but South Carolina statutes clearly state that churches and places of religious study are on the list of places that one may not enter with a gun even if you have a permit for concealed carry or otherwise. They simply created the law to fit their agenda. The thing is that it is not necessary by law for a church to put up a sign with a silhouette of a gun in a red circle and a red line through it. It is not necessary for a church to display a sign stating that it is a “gun free zone” the way schools do. But they may as well put up a sign saying “KILLING ZONE” because that is what is was and is in Charleston, or for that matter, all schools and churches in South Carolina or anywhere else for that matter. A “Gun Free Zone” and/or a sign stating such, will not protect anyone.

Yes, it was indeed     Continue reading

The Most Logical Approach to Gun Ownership

I guess this has been around for some time now, perhaps about 10 or 12 years now but it still makes sense.  I received it as an email the other day and it says that Fred Maslack ‘recently’ proposed this as a bill but for as much as I can tell, he is not even still in the legislature anymore.  It has probably surfaced as a result of the recent new push for more gun control.  But it is still a great idea that came from someone in New England with a realistic head on his shoulders.

Flag GunVermont State Rep. Fred Maslack has read the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as well as Vermont’s own Constitution very carefully, and his strict interpretation of these documents is popping some eyeballs in New England and elsewhere.

Maslack recently proposed a bill to register “non-gun-owners” and require them to pay a $500 fee to the state.  Thus Vermont would become the first state to require a permit for the luxury of going about unarmed and assess a fee of $500 for the privilege of not owning a gun.  Maslack read the “militia” phrase of the Second Amendment as not only the right of the individual citizen to bear arms, but as ‘a clear mandate to do so’.  He believes that universal gun ownership was advocated by the Framers of the Constitution as an antidote to a “monopoly of force” by the government as well as criminals.  Vermont’s constitution states explicitly that “the people have a right to bear arms for the defense of themselves and the State” and those persons who are “conscientiously scrupulous of bearing arms” shall be required to “pay such equivalent.”  Clearly, says Maslack, Vermonters have a constitutional obligation to arm themselves, so that they are capable of responding to “any situation that may arise.” Continue reading

Newt Gingerich Believes All Men Should Have the Right to Bear Arms

At the annual convention of the NRA, Newt Gingerich gave a rousing speech that was met with much laughter and applause from the members attending.  One thing that was most notable in the things he said was that he believes that everyone on earth deserves gun rights and should have their own Second Amendment.

He also said that if he were elected President, he would “submit to the United Nations a treaty that extends the right to bear arms as a human right for every person on the planet because every person on the planet deserves the right to defend themselves from those who would oppress them, those who would exploit them, rape them or kill them.” 

Wow, compare that to our current “socialist in chief”.  He is currently lobbying members of Congress to adopt the U.N.’s proposed “Small Arms Treaty” that effectively would take away our guns and nullify our own Second Amendment.

I briefly digress here but the U.N. Small Arms Treaty that Obama is so enamored with would, “confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms (exempting those owned by our government of course) and that means yours, ban the trade, sale and private ownership of semi-automatic weapons” (again, that means yours), and other egregious things.  I could go on here but I refer you to an article on this in Forbes magazine from June 7, 2011 for more information on this horrific idea Obama wants to foster if he is re-elected to another term.

But getting back to Mr. Newt, he has a more logical idea that is 180 degrees the opposite – imagine that.  This is the man whom I feel should be at the fore front of our Presidential campaign.  I mean if he were to become our candidate for President on the Republican side, he would no doubt mop the floor with Obama.  This man speaks from the heart, unlike the Bam Bam who needs a teleprompter to remember his lines.  Mr. Newt speaks from the heart because it is part of his core, his personal beliefs, and moral fortitude.  He doesn’t need to be reminded what he believes in his sole.

His speech to the NRA members brought them to their feet with applause when he announced his idea for a different treaty that would empower all people.  “Let’s take the George Soroses and Hillary Clintons head on,” Mr. Newt said to the cheering crowd.  “They represent a world in which elites disarm the rest of us so we are then helpless when elites turn sour and when evil reappears.”

He also told the NRA members that “he has been much too timid and moderate in his defense of gun rights.”  I think that perhaps he should have been a little more vocal on these issues before now.  Maybe he might be a little farther ahead in the race for President.  Afterall, this is the man, out of the current stable of contenders that should become our President.  I mean, think of it – President Gingerich.  Sounds good, doesn’t it? Pass it on.  Maybe it will catch on.  It’s not too late.

“The right to bear arms comes from our Creator, not our government.” – Newt Gingrich

Gun Control – Do We Really Need It?

I couldn’t believe it the other day when someone whom I thought knew me, asked me, “So how do you feel about Gun Control?  Don’t you think we really need it?”  As if she didn’t know my answer to that!?  Looking back I now think she was just trying to get me going, but that’s OK too.  But as for Gun Control, let me put it this way.  Another great blog that I link to here, Extrano’s Alley, has this prominently displayed on the top of his front page and it pretty much sums it up.

There are more than 22,402 restrictive gun laws in force.  Of those, not even one has ever reduced crime. In fact, crime has increased after each of these laws, and the amount depends on the severity and level of enforcement of the law.

The fact is, (borrowing from the great movie with Humphrey Bogart, “Sierra Madre”) we don’t need no stinking badges – to carry our guns.  I added the last four words, but what I mean is we shouldn’t need no stinking permit to carry a gun, concealed or otherwise.  We shouldn’t have to show good cause to be able carry a gun, concealed or otherwise.  Let’s face it, criminals certainly don’t feel they need a permit to carry a gun when they are a committing a crime.  They’re already breaking the law.  Why should they worry about a stinking gun permit.

We already have the only permit we should ever need in the Second Amendment. Our Founding Fathers gave us the right to carry guns and they recognized that it was a right that should never be taken from us lest we see ourselves as subjects of a tyrannical government.  Our Constitution was written to restrict what Government can do – not restrict what citizens can do.

Just what part of “shall not be infringed” do you not understand?  And yet, every year, legislators devise some new way to infringe upon law abiding gun owners and restrict their gun right.  These same legislators took an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States”.   But with every new Gun Control law they are further destroying the Constitution.  With every new Gun Control law they are violating that sacred oath and deliberately shifting the balance of power into THEIR hands and into the hands of the criminals.

That quote I placed above is probably a little old in that there are many more than 22,402 restrictive gun laws in these United States.  There are more laws every year, especially in California and New York – and Illinois, and Massachusetts, but I digress.  But not one of those Gun Control laws has ever stopped a murder, a burglary, armed robbery, car jacking, sexual assault – again I could go on.

Gun Control laws do absolutely no good to anyone but the criminals, because they actually make their job easier.  They only restrict law abiding citizens from being able to effectively defend themselves from others who have made crime their career choice.

New gun laws do accomplish one thing in that they secure the liberal legislators in their seats.  They appease their liberal base such that they will vote for them next time, confident that the same liberal hacks will continue to support ridiculous Gun Control laws.

I used to think that these new laws they write and pass must at least make them feel good in that they must feel that they have done something positive to protect society and keep them safe.  But any more I can’t believe that they could possibly continue to be that stupid.  When all of the evidence flies in the face of that notion, how can they really believe something so ridiculous?  Gun Control laws actually work to increase crime in every area or state they are tried.  Every large population center that has strict gun control laws, has violent crime that is out of control and on the rise every year.  It has gotten so bad that the crime statistics that they are reporting are deliberately cooked to try and show decreasing crime so they can continue support their absurd notions that Gun Control laws are working.

Gun Control laws are against the law in my opinion as every one of them goes against the Constitution of the United States and the Second Amendment.  Guns should always have a place in our Society or we will cease to be a free people.   The only laws we should even consider might be restricting those who have mental disabilities and violent criminals, although the latter does absolutely no good anyway.  But guns should never be in the hands of the mentally disturbed.  Although, there is another problem, how do you find those people before they commit some insane act?

Other than that, I believe the Gun Control laws we have now should be repealed.  Every law abiding citizen should be required to own a gun and know how to safely use it.  Crime in our country would amazingly become so much more infrequent that news bureaus would have to look other places for their news stories.  Of course they are doing a lot of that now already by making up new false issues in order to further liberal bias.  But that is another rant altogether that perhaps I will have to take on another day.

A society that does not trust its citizens with guns does not trust its citizens.   When citizens live in a society where only the police and military have guns, they are living in a police state  –  Anonymous

Barbara Boxer Says Republicans Want To Kill People

In a press conference Tuesday, Barbara Boxer claimed that by attaching an Oil Pipeline bill to the Tax Cut Extension bill that Obama wants, Republicans are going to be responsible for more than 8,000 people dying as a result, and they want this as a Christmas present to the people.

An article reporting on this in The Hill.com said that she claims that people would “die from breathing in too much poison in the form of mercury, lead, and arsenic”, as a result of this attachment to the bill.

ARE YOU EFFING KIDDING ME?!?! I want to ask, “Is she really that stupid?”  But that is rhetorical, since I know she is.  The problem is that, since I also know she can’t think for herself, so she is obviously repeating clap trap from the Democrat leadership.  I really wish that I could reach out and strangle the people that voted for this idiot to be re-elected, and the slap them and tell them to wise up.

Liberals tell us that we need to kinder and gentler in our criticisms and comments to the media and yet they are out there spewing garbage like this.  It gets picked by the liberal media and made to look like Republicans are dumb shits when all you really need to do is look at the source of the comment for stupidity.

How many people have you killed Mrs. Boxer with all of your abortion legislation, or gun control bills that victimize people and keep them from being able to defend themselves?

When it really comes down to it, America needs the Keystone XL oil pipeline which is supposed to go from Canada to Texas.  We need it because all sources of energy in this country need to be expanded to lower our dependence on foreign oil and produce cheaper oil from our own continent.

But liberals fight it at every turn and the stand up and say we need to explore ‘alternative energy’ as our new energy frontier.  What, like Solyndra?  Green energy programs are repeatedly turning up as expensive failures.  Alternative fuels such as ethanol cause food shortages and drive up the cost of food to poor people, the very people the Democrats claim to be protecting.

This country is killing itself on Liberal ideas and Democrat legislation.  We are going to politically correct ourselves into socialism and the ultimate death of American Exceptionalism if we don’t turn things around.  People – please wake up.

Rick Perry Wants to Get Serious on Insider Trading

Following is an article by Governor Rick Perry of Texas, who is currently a candidate running for President of the United States.  In the article he makes some points that not only make a lot of sense but should be read and understood by all Americans who plan to vote in November.  While I am not necessarily endorsing Governor Perry at this time, I would certainly vote for him if he becomes the Republican nominee.

The current field of Republican candidates has several fine candidates that would make a fine President and I am still analyzing each of their attributes.  As such have not decided on one whom I would like to be the nominee. I only know that I definitely do not want Mitt Romney.  We don’t need a middle of the road RINO who is willing to kiss liberals butts to get legislation that will only compromise our values, passed through Congress.

Rick Perry’s plan is proposing to establish a “part time” congress to bring it back in line with the fundamental tenets of our founding fathers who believed that elected congressmen and senators should come out of the working class and return there after their term in Congress.  The full time professional legislators we now have become entrenched in the trappings of power and money that influences voting and their mindset.

Read now an alternative idea proposed by a fine American; Governor Rick Perry:

Time To Get Serious About Insider Trading in Washington

by Governor Rick Perry (R-Tx)

Congress is finally feeling the pressure over insider trading, the practice of trading financial securities based on non-public information available to a select few in government.

After a series of investigative reports, including several here at Big Government, the American people are beginning to realize that what is wrong with this country can be diagrammed on a map, with a straight line connecting Wall Street and Washington, D.C.

Now exposed to the light of day, the political establishment is determined to show the American people it is “doing something” to clean up its act.

This week, the House Financial Services Committee held a hearing on the matter, taking what many observers saw as great pains to minimize perceptions of a systemic and bipartisan problem.  But I remain skeptical, as do many Americans, that Congress will actually pass a bill with teeth that requires them to live by the same rules as the rest of us.

The fact is, things will never change as long as the same Washington insiders remain in control.  Washington is broken and needs a complete overhaul, but establishment politicians only want to tinker at the margins.  This is why we can’t ask a Washington insider to fix Washington, because it takes an outsider to overhaul a corrupt culture.
