    Start the impeachment proceedings.

      And sharpen the blade on the guillotine

      • bgth021

        Why sharpen blades and stuff? You are not suggesting we kill him?

        • factsobill

          Why not. He has no problem killing Americans with no due process!

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          May the sharp blade of justice come down upon Zero’s head swiftly and decisively. Figuratively speaking, of course.

        • MiketheMarine

          After he is impeached and then prosecuted for treason then found guilty, then Yes. The punishment for treason is execution

          • bgth021

            I just peeped your profile. I didn’t see such comments from you when the Patriot Act was signed. Please reply.

            • MiketheMarine

              Well, at the time I was a bit busy with wounded warriors and military things. We are at war and islam WILL bring the war to our shores again and more frequently. That’s what our weak middle east posture has guaranteed. I don’t mind the patrior act too much as I have nothing to hide and its is muslims that are perpitrating these heinous acts. When metro busses and rail line start blowine up in DC and NEw York on a regular basis because Maobama and the liberasl have no balls, you’ll understand why the patriot act doesn’t bother moe

              • bgth021

                It would have been cooler if you told me you were wounded but I’ll take what i can get.

                In any case you need to read 1984. You have been tricked. Or better yet read my book. This will happen one day and your gun will be irrelevant.

                It’s 2048 and It Happened at Nextfest.

    • neko_dachi

      As I asked on another thread: What would impeaching Obama actually do?

      Bill Clinton was impeached. I don’t recall it actually affecting him in the slightest. In fact, I think most people don’t even realize he was impeached. Why do we think impeaching Obama will be any different?

      • http://twitter.com/SheerPolitics Sheer Politics

        The senate never convicted him. House impeaches, if the Senate convicts (which is unlikely given it’s current makeup) the president is thrown out of office.

        • colliemum

          Change the Senate, then. With impeachment proceedings on the table, it would make a great campaign issue in 2014.

          • E. Lee Zimmerman

            Therein lies the rub: I doubt we could come up with Conservative candidates who’d embrace it in the Senate.

        • E. Lee Zimmerman

          Actually, I don’t think the Senate has to convict. I think the Senate only enforces, but you’re right in that the Senate just chose to not enforce the impeachment. As a matter of record, Clinton’s impeachment does stand in the history books (proper ones, anyway); once you’re impeached, you’re impeached. The problem is without cooperation of both Houses of Congress AND the Department of Justice, you can essentially do little with any impeachment other than send a message … but that’s where I believe a message should be sent EVERY TIME a President violates the Constitution. Force those asterisks to be put next to their name in every history book. That’s the least we can do.

          • http://twitter.com/0z3an Ryan Phillps

          Ahh but Reid is doing local television in his state singing his emotional attachment to Obama for a reason
          Reid is a big 2nd Am guy. and he’s getting ready for what may come

          He either will have to convict or take the fall himself

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          We all know that will happen in Zero’s case. (/sarc)

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        It’ll essentially do nothing but send a message. The point behind sending a message is that we might just force more folks on our side to actually WAKE UP and smell the coffee. Granted, some may see that as inconsequential in the scope of things, but until we actually start taking some kind of action against the boy-king, we’re allowing the Imperial Presidency to continue unabated.

        Doing something is better than doing nothing.

      • ApplePie101

        You’re right, and that’s why any politician shouting ‘Impeachment!’ is doing it just to appease the peasants.

        • factsobill

          Yeah all politicians want it for their resume. Uncle Bill was as lame as a lame-duck can be afterwards!

      • factsobill

        The symbolism is worth the effort as O likes to say!

      • factsobill

        You have a bad memory , Uncle Bill had no choice but live in the infamy of being the only President to be caught in an intern’s mouth and dress. the 1st since, what ,Andrew Johnson to be impeached! Yeah he had a lot of credibilty afterwards. Naught!!

          “The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.”

          — Adolph Hitler, Mein Kampf

          • colliemum

            Yes – and the stomach-turning point about this is that he grabbed the children from their parents, through enforced membership in the Hitler Youth, and then mercilessly sent those precious children to fight and die for him in the last year of WWII.
            Did you know that Allied troops told of their surprise when they found 14, 15 year old Hitler Youth boys fighting in Normandy?
            And of course they were the last ones to be sacrificed in Berlin, fighting the Soviets.

            Stalin abused them in the Komsomol, and scores of them ended up either inside the GULAG, or outside, as guards. Brainwashed and not knowing that what they were doing was wrong.

        It actually has more far reaching impact than people yet realize. If you have a kid on any type of ADD, ADHD medication they may never be allowed to own a gun.

        Technically speaking if you used Chantix for smoking cessation you could also fall under this.

        Think about how many meds fall under that. Ambien anyone?

        • sDee

          Ain’t electronic health records grand? – anyone see why as far back as Bush2 the Feds have been funding the development of EHRs?

            Yep!!! And they will rapidly increase cost under the guise of implementation.

            • E. Lee Zimmerman

              And, as a precedent, this is the start of a long slide down a very slippery slope b/c where do you stop? Say the boy-king requires a psychological evaluation as a necessary component of gun ownership — that means the government has a psychiatric case file on you — where does it stop? Cars can kill; are we looking at a step in that direction, too? A psych eval as part of car ownership? This goes all the way to a psych eval as a necessary component of ObamaCare! That’s the slope we’re on, folks, and, as we’re in the minority, we’re destined to lose this fight.

        • http://www.facebook.com/jgnixdorf John Nixdorf

          In his Friday morning news conference, National Rifle Association chief executive Wayne LaPierre floated the idea of a national registry of the mentally ill as one way to stem gun violence.
          “How can we possibly even guess how many, given our nation’s refusal to create an active national database of the mentally ill?”

          http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2012/12/21/the-nra-wants-an-active-mental-illness-database-thirty-eight-states-have-that-now/

          • stage9

            More importantly, define the threshold of “mentally ill”.

            Is a Tea Partier “mentally ill”? Is an Occupier “mentally ill”?

            Are these political categories of people or clinical categories?

            • colliemum

              To a leftie gun controller, anybody who wants to own a gun has to be mentally ill. This is not a joke, they do say things like that.

              • stage9

                That’s what worries me and makes me paranoid.

              • E. Lee Zimmerman

                Amen, mum.

            • http://www.facebook.com/jgnixdorf John Nixdorf

              You should have asked Wayne LaPierre to define the threshold of mentally ill before calling for a database of them to be created.

              • colliemum

                Is Wayne LaPierre a doctor now?

              • factsobill

                Wayne is a lot like Republicans, he can and may Wilt like in ’92. He i s a lobbyist and a poliltician too! If he shows any weakness or compromise with O, we as gun owners lose!

            Thanks for the heads up and the link.

          • stage9

            I think it’s a great idea. I for one do not have a problem with this SO LONG AS the parameters of “mental illness” are clearly defined and the rules are NOT VAGUE, AND if the person is CLEARED of mental illness by a medical professional can be given a pass if the doctor deems it appropriate.

            The one thing the government is good at is leaving GAPING HOLES in laws so that they can grandfather in further restrictions later. You either define the parameters or kill the idea altogether.

          • factsobill

            Mental illness Evaluation should a Requirement for This President!!!!!He should also be given a Lie-detection Examination on how he thinks he rates at upholding his oath to us and the Constitution. I have no faith he’d pass muster as a PFC, much less CIC!LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

        Do you not see how the information can be used?

    • Gavinsnanna

      It also contradicts the BO Health Plan..

    • http://twitter.com/SheerPolitics Sheer Politics

      In regards to doctors, they want them to INFORM on their patients. This is EXACTLY what the Nazis and Communists did to ferret out the undesirables or those who might cause trouble for dear leader.

      http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/obama-asks-doctors-help-deal-guns_696121.html

      PRESERVE THE RIGHTS OF HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS TO PROTECT THEIR PATIENTS AND COMMUNITIES FROM GUN VIOLENCE: We should never ask doctors and other health care providers to turn a blind eye to the risks posed by guns in the wrong hands.

      Be careful–even now in some states, doctors will ask the children if mommy or daddy has a gun. They should be instructed to tell them, “It’s none of your business.”

      • Nukeman60

        “It’s none of your business” is a trip wire that means “why yes, I do” to them. What you should teach your children to say, and what you should say is, “Heck, no. Those things are dangerous.”

        • http://twitter.com/SheerPolitics Sheer Politics

          We have a conservative radio personality who moved back from living up north. He said that happened to his kid and he told his kid to say just that. Then the doctor brought it up to him and they changed doctors. I thought that was a great idea: It gave the kid an answer that was not a lie and he got a heads up about what was going on.

          This is basically a tact taken out of the Communist and Nazi playbooks of getting kids to inform on their parents.

        • Sara

          How about “what does that have to do with my health?”

            That sounds good, but is still a red flag – whether or not you own guns.

        • ApplePie101

          It’s important to explain to children that while lying is wrong, in some situations (like a fascist regime) it’s necessary.

            That’s why these E.O.s must be fought, now, so that they cannot be implemented, ever.

        • Nukeman60

          Just remember, to this administration, ‘illegal’ only means ‘undocumented’. They don’t think these illegals are ‘illegal’. Illinois just passed a law allowing illegal aliens the right to have a drivers license.

      1. Felons
      2. People convicted of domestic violence or subject to a protection order
      3. Fugitives
      4. Drug addicts
      5. People who’ve been committed to a mental institution
      6. Illegal aliens
      7. People who’ve been dishonorably discharged
      8. People who’ve renounced their citizenship

      Do you want any of those people to be able to legally own guns? Felons? Illegal aliens? People kicked out of the military?

      “The most common federal law that prohibits people from owning firearms is 18 U.S.C. 922(g). This is commonly called the felon in possession law, but it is more broad that just that. For instance, if you have been convicted of a crime punishable by imprisonment over a year, 922(g) says you can’t possess or own a firearm. If you have been convicted of a crime of misdemeanor domestic violence or are subject to an order of protection, same thing. Also, if you are a fugitive from justice or are an addict or unlawful user of controlled substances were adjudicated as a mental defective or have been committed to a mental institution then again, you can’t legally possess or own firearms. Other people not allowed to own or possess firearms are an alien illegally or as a non-immigrant visa, people who have been dishonorably discharged from the military, individuals who have renounced your citizenship.”

          So the argument is that it should be made legal for felons, drug users, and illegal aliens to own guns? Because they’re just going to do it anyway?

        Do you know how many people make false accusations of “domestic violence” or who file phony “protection orders” against a spouse or a boyfriend or girlfriend as revenge or just for “sh!ts and giggles” when a relationship breaks up? Clearly you are unaware of how far some people will go to get even. I suggest you take a full day and go sit in on divorce court proceedings. It will open your eyes.

      • stage9

        yeah, that’s what I’m implying, that I want criminals on the streets. get real.

        My point was that a lot of this is so vague that it could apply to ANY group. We already know that the Justice Department is in possession of a list of suspected “hate groups” and have defined extremist elements that are NOT in fact “extremists”.

        Why would it then be unreasonable to question the vagueness of the list posted above?

        It’s quite reasonable. And since I live by the tried and true philosophy: NEVER, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE, EVER TRUST A LIBERAL, I question the validity of much of this list.

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        Not really. I’ve honestly been saying for years that, politically, folks like you and me, steprock, are in the minority. I felt the tide a’changin’ back in the late 90’s when I was working in medical billing management. It seemed very clear the direction we were heading, but, when you told people (like Rush still points out today), you’re told “you’re exaggerating, you don’t know what you’re talking about, etc.” … and here we are.

        • steprock

          Sure, but does anyone care? Worse, are we heading exactly where they want to go?

          My fear is that America is like a drunk who won’t change until we hit rock bottom. In that case, Conservatives and Liberals alike will be flat broke and blaming each other.

          • E. Lee Zimmerman

            Well, you might be missing my point. My point is that we’re in the minority, so we care … but the majority has hitched its cart to Obama’s wagon. They did so a long time ago. Again, you have to accept that folks like you and me ARE the minority.

            Yes, we’re heading exactly where the majority wants us to go.

            Plus, we’re already flat broke, and neither the Democrats nor the Republicans really seem to care.

            I’d encourage everyone to understand that the WAshington elite on both sides of the aisle are essentially no different that the entitlement majority as the bottom of the pay scale. The elite are just as interested in preserving the state of affairs as are those folks who make their livelihood by sponging off the taxpayers. They’re two sides of the same coin. To both of those classes, you and I don’t matter — we’re exactly what makes THEIR livelihood possible, and they’re both fighting tooth and nail to preserve it.

            • MiketheMarine

              Actually, I will admit it to an officer while “Sir-ing” him to death and “dropping” my military ID in my lap. Frequently, a Former Marine police officer will let a brother Marine go. There are down sides to fearlessness but the upsides are frequently very surprising.

              • poljunkie

                I’ve never had the good fortune. …Im always super polite, all smiles etc…..

                On the freeway about 5 years ago, an unmarked car was tailing me at about 85-88…sort of freaking me out. I would speed up….so would he. Went on for about 10 miles. This was on a pretty vacant stretch, anyway eventually he turned on a red light and pulled me over.

                In my defense ….(Still polite) I said, Mr Officer, the car was unmarked, the freeway was deserted, I didnt know who you were…following me, for so long…
                Didnt matter. He wrote me the ticket for 88. Which meant I had to go to court (Anything over 85 here requires a court appearance)…which was on the other side of his Jurisdiction… …3 hours away.

                I freaked myself out about the appearance thinking it was going to be a big deal, but the day I went – it was like a revolving door- there must have been 500 people – one long line….Walk up to the judge…he would hit the gavel and tell you your fee.

                Thankfully he didnt write it for 90- or it would have been reckless driving.

                • MiketheMarine

                  Yep, our system of government and courts is broken but there are still some sane, normal, logical folks who work in these systems and when you’re VERY lucky you will run into one or two along the journey of life.

                • poljunkie

                  Yes, I know.

                  The police and FIRE DEPARTMENT who make the emergency calls, have my sincere gratitude. Often times they step in to a situation not knowing what awaits.

                  The guys who race to the scene, or come to the house when you dial 9-1-1 or the local Fire/police guys that come to my mom house when she panics and dials for help- They are awesome.

                  I see them all the time at the market. Buy them coffee.

                  Its the ones that write the speeding tickets that are meanies.

                • MiketheMarine

                  There are natural born A-holes who are unable to ever change but I always try to remember that they are just people too and if the cop happened to have an argument with the wife or got an audit from the IRS, he may be a dick when he pulls you over and it has nothing to do with you.

                  I try to remember that life can be a beeatch and you never know what the person your interacting with has just dealt with. I’ve found most cops to be fair and kind with the inevitable exception.

              Excellent answer. For men, how about, “Only the one I was born with.” wink, wink

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      Yeah, don’t hold your breath. Many doctors believe socialized medicine is a good thing. Just ask them how many patients they see who are on either a state-sponsored program and/or Medicare itself, and they won’t want to give that income up. In fact, the point many doctors make (and, yes, I’ve talked to probably two dozen on this matter when I worked in medical billing) is that once we’re a fully socialized country that means that the rates of payment will necessarily HAVE to go up despite my evidence to the contrary.

      I could go on and on and on about how monitoring the payment policies of insurance companies over the last ten to fifteen years showed we were heading this way, but, alas, it is what it is.

      Number 16 is because Harry Reid put in that no healthcare provider shall ask about your guns or collect information of your guns and ammo in the Affordable Healthcare Act. Obama has to make sure that since it was passed without anyone reading that part he can now change it through an executive order without having to scrap Obamacare completely.

      Not in EO. He made recommendations to Congress to ban them.

      • c4pfan

        So, he even admits he can’t do it by EO!

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      He can’t, and, legally, he knows it. He’s going to put pressure on Congress to come up with a proper definition of what constitutes an assault rifle, and then he’s going to put the onus on them to do it.

  • poljunkie

    So word salad then?

  • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

    #16 and #17 are funny. Congress passes a bill, which then becomes an “Act” upon passage.

    Why is it called an “act?” Because it’s an official, declared, “Act of Congress.” I.E., a unique power held by congress, which the President shares in no way, whatsoever, other than the ability to sign it into “Law”, or veto the act.

    Nothing in the Constitution give the president power to declare a law does not mean what it says. He has exactly two options: enforce the law as written, or do not enforce it. That’s it. If he chooses not to enforce the law, he can be impeached. (I’m guessing he can also be found by congress to be “in contempt,” but I don’t know the rules about that.)

  • colliemum

    What about #15 then:
    “Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most effective use of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector to develop innovative technologies.”

    Like – having a lock which must be kept on at all times, so that you can’t use the gun when someone breaks into your house?

    • MiketheMarine

      Well, that one makes sense. His recent experience with running guns to drug cartels makes him uniquely qualified, in Mao’s mind, for that position.

    • stage9

      Yeah, I was wondering about that too. What the heck is that? Gun safety technologies? Innovative technologies? What the heck is he talking about? Every gun comes with a “safety” already.

      What does he want? Something from the movie SKYFALL where the grip is coded to operate only to your hand?

      • steprock

        In short, yes.

      • colliemum

        Precisely. Check out how that worked in DREDD, too.

      They are going to use this to justify the transfer billions of our wealth to the regime’s crony “technology” companies. The ludicrous “technologies” I have heard from talking heads make even green energy sound sane.

      – Individual bullet and/or casing serial numbers
      – Firing pins that imprint a unique id on the casing
      – Electronic finger print rigger locks
      – RFID readers in the grip that read an RFID tag embedded in a ring, braclet or skin to release the trigger.
      – GPS tracking of weapons

      • colliemum

        Omigawd. Sounds like a SF convention!

        And even if they actually did develop such stuff, however long it takes – how are they going to implement it on the guns already in existence?

        Oh, I know – take them all away, make people buy the new stuff (after massive checks, natch): economic stimulus, yeehah!

    That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

    It should be interesting to see anyone try to implement any of this. It’s all vague, open to wide interpretation, and mostly all unconstitutional. I don’t see any of it as enforceable or holding up in court. We don’t enforce the gun laws we have now, I don’t see this making any difference. They try to actually enforce it on the other hand. He should be impeached and removed from office.

    1. In other words, it is completely ok to check people’s data for gun ownership, but not to make sure they are here legally.

    2. In other words have every man, woman and child and all of their privacy in the federal health database.

    3. See number 1.

    4. That would include Veterans, members of our Military, those who have ever participated at a Tea Party event, post political views on facebook/twitter/TheRightScoop, Christians and flyover country Red States.

    5. But don’t dare do this if you arrest an illegal.

    6. And if they don’t comply, send the jack boots in like they did to a certain Guitar Manufacturer. If that doesn’t work, there’s always Fast and Furious

    7. Federally funded and run of course. Private Safety instructors need not apply.

    8. Because there’s so much money that could be spent on reviewing an existing law.

    9. Except those found in Mexico due to Fast and Furious. Move along now.

    10. See above on Fast and Furious

    11. As long as that person is approved by dear leader and Attorney General Himmler.

    12. How about giving them the same ROEs as you’ve given our troops? Wait until shot at, then read them their Miranda rights as they keep on shooting?

    13. Because that’s worked so well in Chicago.

    14. Uhm. Gun violence. Is that the same thing as workplace violence? Or man made disasters?

    15. OK Which of dear leader’s bundlers have a gun safety tech corporation that he can pay back?

    16. Because it’s a doctor’s right to know…

    17. Because that little oath doctors took is about as important as that little oath dear leader took.

    18. Most likely armed with bbs. Because the only schools who get real security are the ones dear leader’s and congress’ kids go to.

    19. But not mosques. they’re exempt.

    20. So they can mass medicate anyone they deem mentally unstable.

    21. Because damn it, this has so much to do with 2nd Amendment rights.

    #14, WTF does the CDC know about the causes of gun violence? Why would they be put in charge of “researching the causes and prevention of gun violence”? Something fishy here.

    • Amy

      The CDC has already declared that we have a gun violence ‘epidemic’ despite evidence to the contrary. They are NOT an impartial agency and already have a set agenda. His ‘declaration’ is nothing more than a feel good.

    What gets me is that *most* of the left and the right have such a conflicting view on most domestic and many international issues. The people of our Country are shifting so far apart it’s incredible to me.

    The delta has increased dramatically over the past eight years, and it has become greater …and become insurmountable, at least in my view over the past four.

    Soon there is not going to be any way to reconcile the two mindsets.

    And honestly I think this President likes it like that.

    • sDee

      Facts and the truth could reconcile, but neither of those have been left to chance by State media and State run education.

      • poljunkie

    • steprock

      I feel you, poljunkie. The Left has been coopted by the Socialists, and the Right has moved so far to the middle that they run one watered-down candidate after the other then wonder why they don’t win.

      How long will old-fashioned Conservatives tolerate being told to sit down and shut up?

      This is why I’ve been laying off the politics – it’s all getting worse and I just get peeved with no real way to do anything about it. I feel so freakin disempowered as a Conservative.

    politicians have guns, rich people have guns, why don’t they want you to have guns?

    politicians and rich, influential people have guns because they say that they need them to protect themselves from people who will do them harm.

    they don’t want you to have guns.

    why?

    who are they afraid of?

    they are afraid of you.

    and, well they should be afraid, because their incompetence, greed, corruption, wanton waste of the u.s. treasury, and political repression of your political participation in your own governance has caused you to be very angry with them.

    although they are stupid, they are not that stupid, and they know this. this is why they are deathly afraid of you, because with guns your violence could unseat them from position and power, and you might even kill some of them because of the wrath and displeasure they have inspired & caused in you.

    that’s why they don’t want you to have guns.

    actually, i think it very healthy that you have guns for the very reasons i have discussed. i think it is only just and proper that they are afraid of you for those reasons, because they deserve to be afraid of you for the way they have behaved, and the way they have governed.

    it is good and proper that they should be afraid of you, afraid that you will tip over the apple cart of their privilege.

    it is well and good that you should have guns, and do this, if you feel it justified.

    …..there, is it all clear now, citizens? they fear you. more precisely put, they are scared shitless of you. they could not care less that you kill each other on occasion. what they fear is that those weapons be turned upon them.

    because of what they have done to us, they are afraid of what we will do to them.

  • steprock

    Huh. Sounds like a whole lot of nothing to me. His plans are to make people come up with plans. The most onerous thing about it is that some of these ideas seem like more government snooping.

    9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.

    Like Fast and Furious, maybe?

    This a load of fluff and feel goods designed to soothe those out there who turn to the government for everything. The bans won’t pass the house and if they do, several states have already said FU to the feds. I give it about a week and you’ll hear the b****ing & moaning coming from the far left that the President just isn’t strong enough on gun violence. He’s all show & completely in to self preservation.

    Now it’s time to ramp up and fortify our 2A rights on the state levels. I firmly believe that’s where this is all going to be played out. Free States vs. Federal Government.

    • steprock

      It all seems very weak to me. If I were a Lefty I would not be pleased by this do-nothing list.

    Just Summarizing:
    So, the good homeowners needs to by another gun and mags. so that they can have their children reload the clips and rack the other gun while mom is shooting the intruder(s). Lest, after the fact, she is jailed for possession of a 16 round clip and charged with a felony.

    The bad guys will be stealing twice as many guns/mags. so that they have an uninterrupted stream of firepower to accomplish their task. The law does not apply to their livelihood.

    OK, I read these actions. Instead of flying off the handle can someone address them item by item and explain to me why they’re bad? I really don’t see where they’re objectionable. Are there unintended consequences that I’m missing? Let’s take #7, Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign. Why’s that bad? I personally took a gun safety class even though I’ve had a lot of experience with firearms including 10 years of service for our country.
    By the way I loath BO.

    • Constance

      We don’t need another Executive Order launching a safe and responsible gun ownership campaign or any other campaign. You answered your own question – you took a gun safety class. This is just a waste of time, perpetrated by Obama and his minions – accomplishing nothing of value. We already have most of what has been addressed in these Orders – this country is legislated to death already. That’s what is bad about all this – the waste of time, taxpayer money, and resources used for utter nonsense. We still have a border wide open, unresolved issues on Benghazi, Iran going nuclear, unemployment at record levels for years, etc….. do we REALLY need these silly Executive Orders that accomplish nothing?

    impeachment is only one angle
    The argument in England was that Now that we have The Police, nobody needs to be armed for self defense. Hey folks. A self appointed aristocracy set itself up and proceeded to disarm the public, by stealth tactics – nobody reading bills, objections summarily dismissed with platitudes, the usual lying with statistics. They get away with it here for the same reasons.
    It is now clear that what Feinstein wants is the same as what the Brits have been doing since about 1902, and she believes the same “philosophy”. Nadler’s statement that he believes “the state should have the monopoly on use of force” is that philosophy. It overthrows popular sovereignty and replaces it with aristocratic sovereignty. Obviously Bloomberg buys it, and so does Schumer. Cuomo just implements it. Frankly I am less concerned with their ideas than their tactics and strategies. We need to know where politicians stand on Nadler’s statement, and why and where do they get this unconstitutional garbage from. Force the issue. Don’t be a day late and a dollar short.

    Response from Gov Rick Perry:

    “The Vice President’s committee was appointed in response to the tragedy at Newtown, but very few of his recommendations have anything to do with what happened there.”

    “Guns require a finger to pull the trigger. The sad young man who did that in Newtown was clearly haunted by demons and no gun law could have saved the children in Sandy Hook Elementary from his terror.

    “There is evil prowling in the world – it shows up in our movies, video games and online fascinations, and finds its way into vulnerable hearts and minds.
    As a free people, let us choose what kind of people we will be. Laws, the only redoubt of secularism, will not suffice. Let us all return to our places of worship and pray for help. Above all, let us pray for our children.”

    “In fact, the piling on by the political left, and their cohorts in the media, to use the massacre of little children to advance a pre-existing political agenda that would not have saved those children, disgusts me, personally. The second amendment to the Constitution is a basic right of free people and cannot be nor will it be abridged by the executive power of this or any other president.”

    So what exact health issues will prevent some from getting a gun? that is an entire can of worms in itself everyone is failing to recognize. So somebody with once diagnosed with situational anxiety, that will pop up on their background and then no gun? what degree of mental illness will they not allow to purchase? will other things in our medical records be used to dictate gun purchases such as a history of cancer since some can metetasize to the brain causing lack of conscience thought and violent outburst)? Will all of our health records eventually be released with a background check? oh yes, that will make people want to seek treatment for mental illnesses… And I don’t know about everyone else, but my medical records are not employers business, you know… if that is now in background checks. How would that effect employment? And doctors having to ask if you own a gun? so what happens if you do? You get reported and put on some type of registry? Ever have emotional problems and get reported because you have previously said you owned a gun? Some of this, fine… Whatever. But some of this is opening up flood gates for more problems, anger, joblessness, lives, and so forth. Not.Effing.Cool.

    “When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

    Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.

    There can no longer be any doubt – the forces of tyranny are running wild across our once great Republic. The time has come for all good men and women to rally to the aid of their country. We have now entered a historic crossroads that will decide the destiny of the United States. Arrogance and corruption has long festered in Washington DC, but the last decade has seen an extreme acceleration of criminal looting and attacks on liberty – every freedom is under sustained assault.

    We the People, the rightful masters of this Republic, will either rise up through Congress and the states or we can trade in our birthright of liberty for the chains of a technocratic slavery. Below we list some of the more egregious acts of seditious treason against the Republic of the United States. Anyone who wishes to continue to live in a free country and to pass that birthright on to their children must research this document and then lobby state legislatures and the Congress to do their duty and remove the would-be dictator.

    The time has now come for a bill of impeachment to be introduced and debated in Congress. Obama’s crimes are public, and the debate in the House will serve as a court in which to display the tyrannical activities of President Obama and his cohorts. As in the case of Richard Nixon, the exposure of Obama’s crimes may cause him to resign in disgrace. If he does not step down, the full House will then vote to begin the impeachment trial in the US Senate. The time has now come to make your decision – to stand up to evil or get on your knees as a willing slave.

    Where is the Don’t give the Mexican Cartel thousands of semi-automatics edict?

    Let me see. Zero’s executive orders read this way to me:

    CRAP
    CRAP
    MORE CRAP
    MORE CRAP
    EVEN MORE CRAP
    EVEN MORE CRAP
    CRAP TIMES TEN
    CRAP ABOVE ALL OTHER CRAP
    CRAP THAT MAKES EXISTING CRAP OBSOLETE
    CRAPOLA
    WORTHLESS CRAP
    USELESS CRAP
    CRAP THAT DOESN’T WORK

    …you get the point.

    It sounds like a list of “plans” by some kid in his backyard treehouse playing “President” all by himself.

    $4 Billion to add 15,000 policemen across the nation means we spend over $250K per officer for a year, or over $50K per officer per year over a 5 year period.

    That’s also only one officer for every 20,000 people in the USA, using 300 million as the population total.

    We’re in a financial crisis and they want to spend more? We treat one crisis by fixing it, but don’t bother fixing the other crisis?!

      Not to mention all those pension that have to be paid. I don’t know how it is in other states, but in California police officers can retire at 50 with 90% of their highest salary per year for the rest of their life. Once they retire, they can go work for another government agency and collect a full salary.

      I’m in the wrong profession! =P

    Start the impeachment proceedings…you can’t circumvent the Constitution and Congress without consequences. That’s how wars begin according to history.

  • chatterbox365

    Very, very disturbing my fellow Americans. I have to admit that after the election, I haven’t been as “active” like I used to be because I knew sh*t was going to get bad.

    I live in California so I am used to this stuff happening…the liberals are always up to no good here. What the rest of you are experiencing today has been happening in my state for decades. The virus of liberalism is spreading like a bad case of anal warts and we are screwed unless the Republicans in Congress get their act together.

    A long time ago Christians would fight to death against the enemy, but now many just turn the other cheek. How’s it working out for ya??

    ‘SMART GUNS’ BEING DEVELOPED THAT ONLY SHOOT IN THE HANDS OF AUTHORIZED USERS — BUT IS THE TECH UP TO SNUFF?

    I wonder, should every citizen, 18 years and older be armed? Every voter required to get training? I cannot be dogmatic and claim I know the answers. I just wonder where some would draw the line, rocket launchers and I am being serious because there are a few of those out there. I also understand that this is also good business. Arms made by American companies are sold to those who would kill Americans, they want to make money. Propaganda is being spread by both sides. If there is a line to be drawn, who decides what it is?

    There are a lot of conspiracy theories, they said George Bush was going to make himself a dictator, now it is Obama. There can never be a dictator here, Obama can’t even get all of his cabinet appointments through, the state would not allow it and if it could it would not be a black man.

    I think something is in our water because people have gone nuts.

    Speaking as a gun owner, I don’t really have a problem with any of these. It’s mostly just common sense stuff, isn’t it?
