Word has come that the so-called 'conservative' blue dog Democrats are caving on ObamaCare YET AGAIN.  They have told Pelosi they will have the votes by next Thursday.

In response, Tea Party Patriots have issued an urgent Code Red Alert to get their grassroots members to Washington to stop this unconstitutional assault on our free market system and our liberties. 

Conservative Examiner has the story.

Read it and pass it along.  Thank-you.

SHOWDOWN--Budget Committee Considers ObamaCare, Citizens Descend on D.C.

It looks like a major showdown is in the works over the weekend and into Monday as the House Budget Committee meets to consider how ObamaCare can be passed using the controversial 'reconciliation' manuever.

Meanwhile, citizens from the Tea Parties and 9/12 organizations are going to confront Congressmen in their offices.

Read all about it at Conservative Examiner.

Let the showdown begin.

Second Amendment News Roundup for 3/12/2010

Focusing on guns, politics and news of interesting pertaining to firearms rights, here is today's Second Amendment News Roundup:

Conservative Libertarian Outpost has a special alert from Gun Owners of America concerning the ObamaCare bill, which contains anti-gun provisions (you know, guns in homes are a 'public health' issue?).

Days of our Trailers opines on why the Brady Campaign has its shorts in a bunch and panties in a wad over the Starbucks gun issue.

Alphecca reports that the bill in Minnesota that would have closed the so-called 'gun show loophole' has failed.  Good!

Kurt Hofmann writes on gun safety regulations, Violence Policy Center style.

Say Uncle has the links to today's gun porn.

Tam presents her take on why the Department of Education is buying firearms.  OK, so she makes a good point.  I still want to know why all of a sudden SEVERAL federal agencies are buying up firearms for their employees.  It just seems over the top to me...unless they know something we don't.

Speaking of that issue, Robb Allen has THIS idea for the Department of Education.  I think I have an ever better idea, and this one is serious.  Why not just shut down the Department of Education.  We don't need it.  Education is a local issue, not federal.

Walls of the City has the latest example of the outright bigotry of the anti-gun newspaper Commercial Appeal.

The Ol' Broad has Friday's political cartoon.  Take a look for a chuckle.

"Pearls Before Swine..."

There is a reason why we are losing our liberty in this nation: The willful ignorance of its people.

I would like to say it is confined to the Left and the youth, but I cannot honestly so state. Rather, I find that ignorance also on the Right at every age, social status, and profession. A prime example of this is the deliberate ignoring of history and the lessons of history. It is so very bad it is sickening.

Take the case of so-called “fourth generation” warfare, which is nothing more than guerrilla warfare adapted to modern technology. Now, how can I say that? How about reading numerous volumes specifically written about guerrilla warfare and its history, along with every article I can find — which covers the last 27 years of my life. I have been reading and studying military affairs (weapons, weapons systems, tactics, strategy and history) since about 8 or 9 years old (I am older than 45, so its been a while that I have been doing this). I have decided preference for guerrilla warfare, as difficult as it is to prosecute. So-called “fourth generation” warfare is guerrilla warfare, nothing more. However, leave it to the U.S. military to justify itself and call it something new so they can cover up failing to be prepared for guerrilla warfare.
As a lesson of history, you do not have to be a soldier to recognize what guerrilla warfare is, and is not. All you have to do is be willing to read and heed — something Americans don’t seem to do very well (if at all) these days.

Now, why am I not pleased, and why is this called “Pearls Before Swine . . .”?

Because I finally received a response to the previous post “Incongruence” that was nothing short of willful ignorance. There is no excuse for any American citizen to be ignorant of the foundations of this nation’s form of government. The books and documents are simply far too easy to access and (horror of horrors) READ!

"Morning Bell--ObamaCare at Any Cost"

The Obamanoids are bound and determined to get this 2 trillion dollar monstrosity approved no matter what.

So what's up with that?  Ever wonder why Obama and his minions in Congress are willing to throw away their entire careers over this sham?

Read THIS for more insight.

At THIS Point, It's All Over

Here is what's coming to America very shortly.

Click the graph to enlarge.

And at this point, it's all over for the United States as well know it.  As the saying goes, 'That's all folks.'  And we are getting closer by the minute.

Even Astute Democrats Warn of the Motives Behind ObamaCare Monster

Although nobody says much about it in the lamestream media, some of the more traditional liberal Democrats in the country, such as Pat Caddell, are warning against ObamaCare.

This thorough report, which includes articles and research from several political observers, indicates that the Obamanoids and their minions are pushing this unpopular monstrosity in order to force a Civil War.

Here is an excerpt:

"An alarming crisis" certainly. One that strikes at the legitimacy of the regime. When regimes lose legitimacy, and still try to work their will upon a resisting people, civil wars start. That is why Caddell and Schoen use words like "crisis" and "unmitigated disaster."

Yet Ahab continues to suicidally go after the whale and the bulldozer blindly grinds on.

Or do they?

To believe this is folly is to believe that these people are too stupid to see political realities as outlined above. Yet these are the same people who took a non-entity and crushed the Clinton machine. Can we really believe that they are so feckless, unheeding and stupid as to not see what is around the next political bend?

Or rather, is this what they have been hired to do? Always, always, I ask myself when faced with some otherwise inexplicable government action, the old Roman legal dictum: "Qui bono?" To whose benefit is all of this?

I can only conclude that an American civil war -- which is where this is headed, as Caddell and Schoen warn us between the lines -- benefits only the traditional enemies of the United States.

Another way of putting this is that the Obamanoids and their familiars are "domestic enemies" of the Constitution and the Republic.

The Founders had an idea about "domestic enemies" countermeasures, you know.

And that idea, codified in the Second Amendment, was us -- the armed citizenry.

This is no mere "folly," gentlemen and ladies, this is premeditated evil. And it will not stop until a stake is driven through its heart.

There's going to be a fight.

We didn't choose it, they did.

Let's win.

Electric Cars in our Future?

Apparently not for many more years to come.

In addition, despite the ignorance and/or deliberate deflection of environmentalists who push electric vehicles, you need oil to generate sufficient amounts of electricity for our power needs in America--including that used by electric vehicles.

This is not to mention the fact that North America sits on some of the riches oil fields on the planet, fields that we are unable to tap due to the restrictive laws enacted at the prompting of the idiotic environmental extremists.

Palin Derangement Syndrome

Palin Derangement Syndrome is that disorder, usually restricted to the liberal mainstream media, that manifests itself in such extreme hatred for and fear of Sarah Palin that the victim resorts to strange, over-the-top, and  baseless attempts at character assassination, relentless and mean-spirited lampoons, and attacks on the children and family of the recipient.  Victims of the disorder most definitely need psychiatric hospitalization.

With that in mind, read this latest example of Palin Derangement Syndrome.

Are Government Agencies Gearing Up for Civil War?

As already reported, several government agencies are beginning to arm their employees to the hilt--agencies such as the Department of Education, the Environmental Protection Agency, and of course, the Department of the Treasury.

In this report, David Codrea examines the fact that the Department of Education is buying up short-barrel shotguns.

Now, if the schools are supposed to be 'gun-free zones,' then why the HELL is the federal Department of Education arming itself to the hilt?

"Obama's Private Youth Army--Recruiting 8-Year-Olds"

The danger involving our public education system in America is manifold.  Textbooks are used that delete references to George Washington, the Gettysburg Address, and Ronald Reagan, but teach Che Guevara, Chairman Mao, and Malcomb X.

And now, our fearless American 'Chairman Mao' has launched a secret youth army (like Hitler did) that recruits 8-year-olds!

Read this and get mad for America.  Get livid.  And then get involved to save American from Marxist charlatans.

Second Amendment News Roundup for 3/11/2010

Focusing on guns, politics and news of interest pertaining to firearms rights, here is today's Second Amendment News Roundup:

Brigid has a wonderfully written piece on hunting and why human beings hunt.  A wealth of insight into human nature, guns, and living in the wild.

Western Rifle Shooters Association posts an excellent piece on surviving a gun fight, along with an instructive video.

Tam blogs on pistol-shooting and target practice...and the importance of the regular sharpening of skills.

Mike McCarville reports that Oklahoma has its own version of the Firearms Freedom Act that, like states with similar measures, will exempt from federal law those firearms that are made and sold within the state.

Pax Parabellum wants to know what happened to due process and probable cause in a firearms case in Medford, Oregon.

Robb Allen has a good post on firearms safety.  Take a look.

From Kurt Hofmann: 'If Toyota Made Guns.'

Conservative Libertarian Outpost reports that an online nature hunt can bring wildlife and technology together.

Gun Pundit provides the understatement of the year regarding HuffPo and Josh Sugarmann of the VPC.

Say Uncle reports that 'the Bastard' is bracing himself for a rash of lawsuits in NYC over its restrictive gun control laws in light of what the Supreme Court is likely to do in the McDonald v. Chicago gun case.

The Real Gun Guys provide their roundup of news from the guns and liberty bloggers around the blogosphere.

Yo' Daddy is the Teacher and He Just Gave You a Report Card Full of Fs

That bastion of pro-Obama propaganda, CBS News, has released a report-card-style survey of citizens who were asked to grade Barack Obama on his job performance.

The results are stunning, not simply because of the number of Fs Obama received but because of WHO did the polling and reported the results.

This has to hurt.

It's sort of like getting a report card full of Fs.  Only to be made worse by the reality that your Daddy is the teacher.

We would expect this sort of thing from more partisan anti-Obama agencies, but CBS NEWS?!

Every Single Day It Slips Away Farther and Farther

There are times when news reports hit us hard, right in the gut, jolting us to the stark reality that each day that passes this nation slips farther and farther away from the vision, ideals, and values of the Founders and the principles of individual liberty.

Walls of the City had such an experience recently.  I know the feeling.

Someone in the Federal Gubmint Thinks There's Gonna Be a Civil War

Either they know something we don't, or we the people have scared the ruling class into thinking we are ready to fire the first shot of the Civil War of the 21st Century.

As many of us have said repeatedly, if the first shots are fired in what becomes a Civil War, those shots won't be coming from the citizens.  It will be the storm-troopers of the federal government who open fire on the citizens first.

As Vanderboegh says, 'No more Fort Sumters.'

But be sure to read this post on government employees who think Civil War is coming soon.

"Guns in Parks, Alaska Edition"

Alaska is one of those places that has always intrigued me greatly--the vastness, the beauty, the wilderness, the wildlife, the dogs, and....guns.  It seems that in this Patriot's paradise gun rights are taken very seriously.  I like that.

Paul at Way Up North writes about the subject of guns in parks from the perspective of one who lives in Alaska.  I think you will find it interesting.

All About Women...

...well, maybe not everything, but Standing By reminds us that human beings of the female variety are a civilizing influence in the world.

Be sure to note the connection to terrorism.


Major news is brewing in the heartland at this hour as the 'peasants with pitchforks and torches' are ready to converge on Washinton to confront Congressional supporters of ObamaCare face to face.

As Conservative Examiner reports, Tea Party protesters will systematically enter the offices of Congressmen and Senators to express their outrage over the imminent approval of the ObamaCare government takeover of the U.S. Healthcare System.

Pay attention to these developments, my friends.  Something of historic proportions is afoot in the heartland.


Tea Party protests will kick into high gear, emphasizing confrontation with elected officials in Washington. This is in response to Nancy Pelosi's claim late Wednesday that a deal on ObamaCare in imminent in Congress. The citizens have other plans.

Today's Presidential Poll and Planned National Tea Party Protest

There is rumbling in the heartland, folks.  Barack Obama's poll numbers are plummeting like a lead balloon although he continues to campaign on a daily basis as if he is running for election.  And the Tea Party is going to invade the offices of Congress to demand that elected officials listen to their complaints about the national takeover of healthcare.

Read all about it at Conservative Examiner.

The ire of the citizens is about to hit the fan.  It's about time.

News and Analysis on the Tea Party Movement

An interesting and informative analysis of the Tea Party movement in America has been written by blogger James Shott.  Texas Fred quotes extensively from the article and provides much food for thought.

Mr. Shott's blog is entitled, 'Observations.'

Given that the Tea Party is gearing up for a major initiative in Washington concerning healthcare, this analysis is all the more important.

Hope and Change Becomes Anger and Fear

So how's that hope and change thing working out for ya?  I think most informed Americans, even if they voted for Barack Obama, would have to admit they are now filled with anger and fear.

This key quote over at Pax Parabellum captures the sentiment.  Not only are the citizens turning against Obama, but the rest of the world has taken a good look at our fearless leader and decided that the emperor has no clothes.

A Good Summary of the State of the Nation

From Conservative Libertarian Outpost:

“True rights, such as those in our Constitution, or those considered to be natural or human rights, exist simultaneously among people. That means exercise of a right by one person does not diminish those held by another.” –economist Walter E. Williams

“With their backs to the wall, Democratic leaders are preparing a complicated plan to pass their national health care bill. Standing in the way are Democrats who oppose the bill, whether on principle or out of fear that voting for a wildly unpopular measure will spell defeat for them in November. If you think House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is going to let them off easy, allowing them to kill the party’s top policy priority in more than a generation — well, that’s not gonna happen. Democrats who are considering voting against the bill are about to experience arm-twisting, threats, and pressure like they’ve never experienced.” –columnist Byron York

“In my entire career, I have never been as confounded as I am over President Obama and the Democratic leadership’s obsession with a piece of legislation that not one major national poll has shown to be popular. … So I have to ask, why are the president and the leaders of Congress willing to see their entire party and a multitude of other policy proposals go down in flames over something that the public can’t stand? … Folks, this is nothing more than a power grab. It’s an effort to take one of the most essential elements of every person’s life — their health — and put it under the control of government.” –columnist Matt Towery

“The president cannot show us he is looking out for our interests and our future by forcing a quick, partisan vote on an issue that will impact not only this time but generations to come. This is especially true since he was so adamant in his opposition to using this very parliamentary measure in governance during his campaign. And he cannot show us that he is listening when polls show that only 35-40 percent of Americans support this bill.” –radio talk-show host Michael Reagan
The rest of the quotes can be found at the link above.  They are very telling.  Go.  Read.

"The Collapse of the American Empire: Swift, Silent, Certain"

Market Watch (h/t to Western Rifle Shooters Association) is convinced that the collapse of the U.S. economic system is imminent.  Historians are warning of a sudden 'thief in the night' and an 'accelerating car crash.'

This is NOT the musing of a fringe-element paranoid loon, either.  This is one of the most respected sources of economic news in the world:

Now, Harvard's Niall Ferguson, one of the world's leading financial historians, echoes Diamond's warning: "Imperial collapse may come much more suddenly than many historians imagine. A combination of fiscal deficits and military overstretch suggests that the United States may be the next empire on the precipice." Yes, America is on the edge.

Dismiss his warning at your peril. Everything you learned, everything you believe and everything driving our political leaders is based on a misleading, outdated theory of history. The American Empire is at the edge of a dangerous precipice, at risk of a sudden, rapid collapse.
Ferguson is brilliant, prolific and contrarian. His works include the recent "Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World;" "The Cash Nexus: Money and Power in the Modern World;" "Colossus: The Rise and Fall of The American Empire;" and "The War of the World," a survey of the "savagery of the 20th century" where he highlights a profound "paradox that, though the 20th century was 'so bloody,' it was also 'a time of unparalleled progress.'"
Why? Throughout history imperial leaders inevitably emerge and drive their nations into wars for greater glory and "economic progress," while inevitably leading their nation into collapse. And that happens suddenly and swiftly, within "a decade or two."
Be sure to read this entire riveting article.  It is essential that Patriots be informed of what's coming.  Get ready.

"Don't Look Now, Elmer, but Obama Just Stole Your Fishing Hole"

"Don't look now, Elmer, but Obama just stole yer fishin' hole."

Unbelievable, right? Doubling down on disaster doesn't seem like sensible politics does it? Pissing off EVERYBODY IN SIGHT about something near and dear to them doesn't seem rational, does it? I mean, not if you are trying to get re-elected. What kind of politics is that? Collectivist dictatorial politics, friends. They apparently know something we don't. Like, we're through the looking glass now, and the old verities no longer apply and the Red Queen can have anybody's head lopped off. "Never let a good crisis go to waste," even if you have to manufacture the crisis.

Go read the whole thing on the Obama assault on private property rights NOW!

Second Amendment News Roundup for 3/9/2010

Focusing on guns, politics and news of interest as it pertains to firearms rights, here is today's Second Amendment News Roundup:

Western Rifle Shooters Association says to bring your sidearms and long arms to the banks of the Potomac on April 19, 2010.

Open Carry says that Oklahoma is heating up on the issue of open carry gun rights.  There is a petition you can sign as well.

Conservative Libertarian Outpost reports good news that concealed carry reform is now law in Wyoming.

Kurt Hofmann notes that one year after an Illinois Pastor was gunned down, there is much more that can be done to protect churches against killers.

Alphecca calls our attention to some strange logic that maintains that carrying a gun legally is like food poisoning.  Considering the source, which you will see, maybe I am not so surprised.

Gun Nuts announces that Congressman Dan Burton will be the guest on tonight's edition of Gun Nuts Radio.

Standing By provides Bob Barr's comments on the McDonald-Chicago gun case.

Tam blogs on the subject of 'extreme' tactical training.

Traction Control has some gun porn he'd like to share on the Steyr AUG.  Take a look and follow the link.

Via David Codrea, Dave Workman of the Seattle Gun Rights Examiner highlights the vast intellectual vacuum that exits in the tendency of politicians to enact 'temporary tax hikes' and engage in 'anti-gun politics.'

Yes, Newbius, They Are Watching

We have occasionally called your attention to the fact that the Feds are now watching bloggers, especially the 'right-wing, conservative' variety, very closely.  But they are not the only ones watching.

Apparently the reasons vary.

Newbius discovered this yesterday morning.  And upon further investigation discovered a political motive for the sudden interest in his blog.

"If There is a Hell...."

....then Nicki says this person belongs there.

I have a special place in my heart for dogs--animals in general, but dogs in particular.  They are totally unlike any other creature in that in all likelihood it was they who first initiated contact with humans way back in antiquity in order to secure some of the savory food the humans had cooked on the fire.

And with their winsomeness of wagging the tail, the submissive whine, and so forth, a bond was forged between man and beast that continued throughout the ages.  Dogs became our companions and protectors.  In exchange we gave them shelter and food.  It's like a marriage made in heaven.

And if you ever come across that one single dog who steals your heart away due to a very special bond, then you will know that they sense and understand more about us than we could ever imagine.  I have seen it with my own eyes.

This being the case, I have absolutely no use for sorry excuses for human beings who abuse, mistreat, or neglect these wonderful creatures.

Lindsey Graham the Disgrace

As a resident of the state of South Carolina I can say without doubt that I am fully ashamed of the fact that Lindsey Graham is one of our U.S. Senators.  He is a disgrace to the office and to the conservatives who helped elect him.

The following piece, found at Sipsy Street Irregulars, shows one of the reasons Graham is an embarrassment.

Doubling down on disaster, Lindsey Gramnesty and Chuck "Shithead" Schumer, have decided to make us all get biometric cards in order to insure that we won't get "another wave" of illegals. What about the last five waves they've done nothing about? I know some of you libertarians are all for open borders and don't mind amnesty, but is THIS what you had in mind?!?

MARCH 9, 2010

ID Card for Workers Is at Center of Immigration Plan

Lawmakers working to craft a new comprehensive immigration bill have settled on a way to prevent employers from hiring illegal immigrants: a national biometric identification card all American workers would eventually be required to obtain.

Under the potentially controversial plan still taking shape in the Senate, all legal U.S. workers, including citizens and immigrants, would be issued an ID card with embedded information, such as fingerprints, to tie the card to the worker.

The ID card plan is one of several steps advocates of an immigration overhaul are taking to address concerns that have defeated similar bills in the past.

The uphill effort to pass a bill is being led by Sens. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) and Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.), who plan to meet with President Barack Obama as soon as this week to update him on their work. An administration official said the White House had no position on the biometric card.

"It's the nub of solving the immigration dilemma politically speaking," Mr. Schumer said in an interview. The card, he said, would directly answer concerns that after legislation is signed, another wave of illegal immigrants would arrive. "If you say they can't get a job when they come here, you'll stop it."

The biggest objections to the biometric cards may come from privacy advocates, who fear they would become de facto national ID cards that enable the government to track citizens.

"It is fundamentally a massive invasion of people's privacy," said Chris Calabrese, legislative counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union. "We're not only talking about fingerprinting every American, treating ordinary Americans like criminals in order to work. We're also talking about a card that would quickly spread from work to voting to travel to pretty much every aspect of American life that requires identification."

Mr. Graham says he respects those concerns but disagrees. "We've all got Social Security cards," he said. "They're just easily tampered with. Make them tamper-proof. That's all I'm saying."

U.S. employers now have the option of using an online system called E-Verify to check whether potential employees are in the U.S. legally. Many Republicans have pressed to make the system mandatory. But others, including Mr. Schumer, complain that the existing system is ineffective.

Last year, White House aides said they expected to push immigration legislation in 2010. But with health care and unemployment dominating his attention, the president has given little indication the issue is a priority.

Rather, Mr. Obama has said he wanted to see bipartisan support in Congress first. So far, Mr. Graham is the only Republican to voice interest publicly, and he wants at least one other GOP co-sponsor to launch the effort.

An immigration overhaul has long proven a complicated political task. The Latino community is pressing for action and will be angry if it is put off again. But many Americans oppose any measure that resembles amnesty for people who came here illegally.

Under the legislation envisioned by Messrs. Graham and Schumer, the estimated 10.8 million people living illegally in the U.S. would be offered a path to citizenship, though they would have to register, pay taxes, pay a fine and wait in line. A guest-worker program would let a set number of new foreigners come to the U.S. legally to work.

Most European countries require citizens and foreigners to carry ID cards. The U.K. had been a holdout, but in the early 2000s it considered national cards as a way to stop identify fraud, protect against terrorism and help stop illegal foreign workers. Amid worries about the cost and complaints that the cards infringe on personal privacy, the government said it would make them voluntary for British citizens. They are required for foreign workers and students, and so far about 130,000 cards have been issued.

Mr. Schumer first suggested a biometric-based employer-verification system last summer. Since then, the idea has gained currency and is now a centerpiece of the legislation being developed, aides said.

A person familiar with the legislative planning said the biometric data would likely be either fingerprints or a scan of the veins in the top of the hand. It would be required of all workers, including teenagers, but would be phased in, with current workers needing to obtain the card only when they next changed jobs, the person said.

The card requirement also would be phased in among employers, beginning with industries that typically rely on illegal-immigrant labor.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce doesn't have a position on the proposal, but it is concerned that employers would find it expensive and complicated to properly check the biometrics.

Mr. Schumer said employers would be able to buy a scanner to check the IDs for as much as $800. Small employers, he said, could take their applicants to a government office to like the Department of Motor Vehicles and have their hands scanned there.

Of Politicians and Monkeys

It seems that the old double-standard is rearing its ugly head again with regard to political lampoon and satire.

Remember these constant references to George W. Bush, complete with suggestions that his likeness was akin to a member of the ape family?

Take a look at the double-standard at play by clicking on the link provided above.

"Choose Freedom Over the Nanny State"

Pajamas Media has a MUST-see video on liberty and how close we are to losing it.  Tip of the hat to both Every Blade of Grass and Texas Fred.

With freedom under attack on every hand here in America these days, it is essential that citizens stay fully awake and fully aware.  This video will help keep you informed of what we face.

You Won't Believe Who Said THIS!

Wanna take a wild guess as to who said THIS?:

"Democrats on Election Day 2010 are going to get an ass-whoopin' of biblical proportions if things don't change right now."

Mike McCarville will tell you, and you won't believe your eyes.

Obama's Chicago Mob Hit-Man Rahm Emanuel Confronts Congressmen in Shower Butt-Naked

It seems the Democrats are beginning to implode with infighting and mud-slinging amongst themselves.  The latest involves U.S. Representative Eric Massa, D-NY, who is resigning from the House.

Massa claims he is being forced out because of his opposition to ObamaCare and that Rahm Emanuel was the point-man to intimidate Congressmen into voting for the measure, even resorting to confronting them in the shower nude.

Given that we know of Rahm's connections with the Chicago Mob and that he once sent a dead fish to a journalist who had been critical of him, Mr. Massa had better be thankful to the good Lord above that when Rahm confronted him in the shower he wasn't gutted like a catfish.

ALERT! Obama Misrepresents Healthcare Cost Savings in Speech Monday

More smoke and mirrors and outright lies from Barack Obama on healthcare.

The details are at Conservative Examiner.

If we can't trust our elected officials to tell the truth on something as big as the government takeover of healthcare, how can we trust them on anything at all?  Truth be told, Obama has no idea of what this monster will do to the economy except to push it over the edge into the abyss.

Second Amendment News Roundup for 3/8/2010

Focusing on guns, politics and news of interest pertaining to firearms rights, here is today's Second Amendment News Roundup:

Conservative Libertarian Outpost blogs on the international effort to destroy the Second Amendment.

John Jacob H posts an update on the Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network.  Important!

The Newbius Papers reports that the Brady Bunch had a gun protest but nobody showed up.

Days of our Trailers announces Illinois Gun Owners Lobby Day on March 10.  Take a look.

David Codrea examines the question, 'Is Armed Self-Defense Unwise and Wrong?'

From Kurt Hofmann'Violent Drug Gangs on Public Land--Still Think Self-Defense Not Needed in National Parks?'

In case you missed it, Tam chooses her weapons of choice out of the handgun-shotgun-rifle meme and describes her reasoning for each choice.

Breda describes how she moved from being deathly afraid to go near a firearm to a gun enthusiast who is adept at armed self-defense.  Excellent reading for anyone, especially newbies who may have such fear.

Via Say Uncle, there is more fallout over the ATF's classification of Airsoft guns as 'machine guns', and Pajamas Media has the story.

A Clear Sign Hard Times Are Coming

Various and sundry signs point to the fact that the economy is not in a recovery but sliding further into the abyss.

But this sign, according to the writer, bodes ill and may just be the most telling sign of all that troublesome times are ahead.

I think he makes a good point.

Internal Threat from Al Qaeda--US Muslims Urged to Attack Americans

Al Qaeda has issued a directive to American Muslims--attack American citizens.

"Small Things Easily Lost"

Whether we are rich or have a single possession to our name, we still have those things. It's a voice on the phone, stories muttered by brave men, it's words on pages, ideals passed on from one generation to the next. I have the stories of my father from WW II, told to me on his knee two generations after the War ended. I have the history, the words of my nation, and those men that founded it. "The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed and that they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property, and freedom of press." Thomas Jefferson
This is an excerpt from a classic piece written by Brigid at Home on the Range.  You won't find any clearer statement about the meaning of human liberty and the consequences of letting it slip from our hands.

If you miss reading the entire piece, you are depriving yourself of something moving and special.

'Is Healthcare Worth a Civil War?'

Vanderboegh sent this letter to the editor to a group of newspapers recently on the consequences of Congress' shoving the ObamaCare plan down our throats.  Read it all:

Just blasted this LTE out to a hundred papers or so:

Item: In a recent CNN poll, 56 percent of the American people agreed that the federal government represented a clear and present danger to their liberties.

Item: When asked if the House "Health Care Reform" bill was constitutional, Nancy Pelosi, exclaimed, "Are you serious?"

I can answer that. Yes, Nancy, we are serious.

Distilled to its essence, this is the message of the proposed law that the Democrats are about to ram down our throats:

We, the Imperial Federal Government, have determined what is best for you and you will get it regardless of whether you want it or not. You will be FORCED to play or pay in our wonderful new system of good intentions.

If you refuse, you will be fined.

If you refuse to pay the fine, you will be jailed.

If you refuse to be arrested, you will be killed.

The Founders would have called this "The Intolerable Act."

What Pelosi and these other tyrannical weasels are saying is that we will do what they say or they will kill us -- all in our best interests, of course.

The eternal question is, which is to be the servant and who the master? The federal government, or the people?

What must be said now to such would-be despots is this: "Is your alleged concern for our 'health care' worth YOUR death?" For after they delegate federal police to kill the first few of us who resist -- and we WILL resist -- the rest of the citizenry who wish to remain free and retain control over their bodies will be absolved of any responsibility to obey such a regime. We will then be released to wage a defensive civil war upon what has become an obviously tyrannical system.

It won't be a revolution. It will be a war of restoration against collectivist revolutionaries who have been chipping away at the Constitution of the Founders' Republic for the past century. They are the usurpers, not us.

The Founders would have done so. Indeed, the Founders did so for considerably less provocation. Why should the Democrats expect any different response from us than the Founders gave King George III?

Servitude in Stages, Made Palatable by Distractions

Via WRSA we find this most intriguing and disturbing piece of information concerning the federal government's land-grab of private property:

The sage grouse: A bigger threat to rural Oregon than the Aryan Nations.

A federal decree designating the sage grouse as "endangered" would have potentially lethal consequences for property rights and economic development in eleven states.

But for the untimely demise US Fish and Wildlife Service Director Sam Hamilton, that decision would have been handed down last Friday (February 26), while residents of John Day, Oregon -- an economically crippled community that stands to lose even more because of such a designation -- was being whipped into a froth of sterile sanctimony by two imported "human rights" hucksters over the non-existent threat posed by Paul Mullet and his buddies.
Read the whole thing at Pro Libertate and be very afraid.

Obama Numbers on Economy Prove to be False

For those not convinced that the Obama Administration lies as a matter of routine, here is one more to add to the list.  The Administration's figures on the economy are false, so says that Congressional Budget Office.

Not only that, but the CBO says that the picture is grim.  The full story is at Conservative Examiner.

Thus, the nation cannot afford a 2 trillion dollar healthcare program, nor can it afford to continue with runaway entitlements...not a good sign for those who have come to expect such entitlements.

4 Million Jobs Lost but Taxpayers Fund Gov't Hiring Spree

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced 'good news' this week that 'only 36,000 American workers lost their jobs in February.'

That 'good news' gets even better. Since Barack Obama assumed the Presidency 4.1 million Americans have lost their jobs.

But the good news just keeps on rolling along. As the unemployment figures begin to rival that of the Great Depression (4 million in one year is the biggest jump in unemployment since 1940), the federal government goes on a hiring spree--with your tax dollars.

Conservative Examiner will tell you all about it.

And the icing on the cake is that these taxpayer funded government jobs pay salaries that average $30,000 more per year than comparable jobs in the private sector.

Are you starting to feel all hopeful and warm and fuzzy yet?
