So, you’ve stumbled onto my humble little blog. Perhaps you are a Millenial wondering why most of your friends aren’t fully employed. Or wondering why ObamaKare is being shoved down your throat. Or why your generation is on the hook for a national debt that stands at $17 $18 Trillion and counting. Maybe you are scratching your head wondering why your President thinks Global Warming the weather is more worrisome than Islamic Terror. And perhaps you’ve started to become aware there might be something the corrupt and biased lame stream media isn’t telling you. The answer, to these and other existential questions, is ... the Left - specifically, the modern American Progressive. Think of this site as a portal to a richer understanding of this answer, a portal purposely designed with a consciously cock-eyed bent to keep it entertaining. Because the First Amendment is forever and the Internet never forgets. (Plus you better figure out FICA isn't the name of a Swedish bikini model, before she eats your entire paycheck.)

How to use the portal? You could dive into my archive*. I was most active here 2010-2012, but that matters not. How many times do I need to demonstrate the central point? To wit, the political / ideological Left is a menace to the constitutional republic and must be resisted lest the American experiment in liberty devolve into socialist dystopia. If it's the more pointed hand-to-hand combat of the comment board that whets your appetite, click the 'My Disqus Comments' widget. I continue to visit that world from time to time as a light diversion. Or you could browse through my blog roll. It's a very representative collection of center-right blogs, though hardly exhaustive. I can't do the political / ideology thing 24x7, and you probably can't either. Leave that to the hysterical, talking point chanting, mob agitating, race baiting, election stealing, gaia worshiping, straw man torching, Islamic Terrorist appeasing, organized Left (aka OFA, MSNBC, UAW, SEIU, Think Progress, Media Matters, most of legacy media, the politically correct faculty lounge, anybody who belonged to Journolist, anybody connected to Occupy Wall Street, anything funded by George Soros or Tom Steyer, their paid Internet trolls, and the rest of the usual Team Leftie suspects).

Demotivational Gun Control Politics

The Progressive Ideologue In Chief is keen lately on pushing gun control. And not above stooping to the exploitation of cops and victims as political props, either.

Well, the cops have been polled, and they don't seem to be down with the progressive agenda. (This poll result, incidentally, makes the point I made in my footnote to my previous post - mass confiscation is an impossibility because the guys who would have to do the dirty work would never follow through. Not American law enforcement - and definitely not the all-citizen, all-volunteer, American armed forces.)

As for the grieving Newtown parents who have allowed themselves to be co-opted as lobbyists for the progressive agenda ... I guess it's a "no harm, no foul" situation. By which I mean ... if the reports are accurate that the only change in law from the Left's exploitation of their sad testimony is a relatively small expansion in background checks, I can't get all worked up about it. Because one armed good guy on premise at the school that day would likely have saved a large number of those innocent lives. Because Gun Free Zones Free Fire Zones For Criminals is the real problem.


This debate has also revealed yet another member of Congress to be a complete moron and contemptible elitist. It seems Diana DeGette, US Representative from Colorado, has been working feverishly on limiting 2nd Amendment rights, yet thinks high capacity magazines are as disposable as a smoking joint. This kind of abject ignorance on the subject matter on which someone works daily falls under the simple heading "dumb as a brick." She reminds me of a meeting management rule of thumb given to me by an old mentor: "Better to keep your mouth shut and let people assume you are a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt." But, then again, he wasn't mentoring me for Congress.

While pontificating know-it-alls demonstrating foolish ignorance is always good fodder here, I was prepared to ignore this example because, well ... is pontificating foolish know-it-all Democrat even worth noting as an exception anymore? But my assessment of worthiness was tipped over the line by this enraging bit of dismissive elitism reported by the linked article:
At the same forum, DeGette also mocked a senior citizen who said the state’s new gun laws would put him at a significant disadvantage in a firefight.

DeGette replied that he was lucky to live in Denver, where the police department could come to his aid “within minutes.”

“You’d probably be dead anyway if they had that kind of firepower,” DeGette continued.
Thus, she joins the pantheon of demotivational posters created here.

Update 4:30 pm

Something needs to be done about this provision in the pending legislation: "The proposal will allow a doctor to add a patient to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) without ever telling the patient he or she has been added."

As clear a violation of the constitutional right to due process as you will ever see. And, btw, an obvious stimulant for medical malpractice litigation. And since they wouldn't let us reform that when they shoved ObamaCare down our throats ...

Update 4/11/13

A random comment on the Political Brambles site, kind of summing up my position on today's DC clown car wreck. What, nobody could just close one loophole without making it a national crisis?
