Never let them forget that while Obama is whining about honest people owning guns,

His clowns were doing this:
According to documents obtained by Senator Chuck Grassley, it appears (ATF supervisor) Gillett purchased a number of different firearms at a gun dealership in Phoenix as part of Operation Fast and Furious. It also appears Gillett lied on 4473 forms by using an address that does not lead to his residence, which is a felony.

Some other people are taking notice that that jerk Arie Perliger says people like us are the BIG threat; screw the islamists(dead hostages, dead ambassador and all), it's us nasty right-wing(doesn't matter if you're conservative, libertarian or liberal, if you don't kiss the ass then you're right-wing) types that have to be worried about.

Someone sent me a list; at #5 was
5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
Which would be a lot more comforting if I didn't know what some of them are thinking.

This morning I saw a pic of Hillary Clinton with some quote about 'Women DESERVE good birth control and health care', with lots of followup "I loooove Hillary" comments, and to the couple of people who didn't agree the statement that "You don't have a uterus(for one 'you haven't given birth') so you have no say in this!"  Along with some names.
Attention: When your call for 'birth control and health care' requires taking money from me by force so as to PAY for it, then I damned well do have a say, ladyparts or not.
Second: If your 'no vagina, no say' policy is good, then I'm going to put together a list of "No testicles?  You get no say" matters.

From the political director of CBS News:
”The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants   to transform American politics, he must go for the throat. … Obama’s only remaining option is to pulverize. Whether he succeeds in passing legislation or not, given his ambitions, his goal should be to delegitimize his opponents. Through a series of clarifying fights over controversial issues, he can force Republicans to either side with their coalition’s most extreme elements or cause a rift in the party that will leave it, at least temporarily, in disarray.”
No, no bias there...

Holder and Obama really don't want those documents coming out, do they?
Attorney General Eric Holder and his Department of Justice have asked a federal court to indefinitely delay a lawsuit brought by watchdog group Judicial Watch. The lawsuit seeks the enforcement of open records requests relating to Operation Fast and Furious, as required by law.

Friend had a link to this Let's Talk Seriously About Gun Control article; which piece rather pissed me off due to some of the crap in it.  A few:
What does seem to increase violence (PDF link) is not concealed carry, but a looser definition of self-defense. So-called “stand your ground” laws increase the number of situations in which it is legal to shoot someone to death, and it appears that they do not deter crime at all, but do lead to about an 8% increase in shootings. Would a MORE restrictive definition of self-defense therefore reduce shootings further? My gut feeling is probably not, but it’s certainly worth looking into.
Those outside gun culture often underestimate just how many people in this country get massive boners at the prospect of shooting cops rather than giving up their guns, or how pants-crazy serious they are about it.
Perhaps an annual tax on registered firearms? Say a hundred bucks a piece, so that I get dinged for a hundred or two, some guy with ten guns gets dinged for a grand, and so on? I don’t know if this is a good idea or not. It might induce people to pare down their arsenals a bit...
He also thinks the GCA of '68 didn’t technically ban a lot of the things it banned, it just taxed them effectively out of existence.; apparently he couldn't be bothered to actually check the history on this before writing.  Which doesn't exactly give me warm fuzzies.

On the 'NICS checks on even private sales' idea, from Tam:
Look, the only way you can have mandatory background checks on private sales is to have a list of all the guns everybody owns so you know when they change hands, and you can't have a list of my guns because #@%$ you, that's why, so you might as well give up on the background check idea.

Son made the trip back to Home Base with no problems along the way, after a lot of visiting with people while here on leave.  Which included attending a couple of fun shows.

And, having had a nice day in which I could do the exercise crap, I'm tired and achy.  And thinking longingly of going to Braum's for some ice cream(which I won't do, but it sounds so good...), so goodnight to you all.

Re: CBS' political commissar: Maybe he wasn't paying attention for the last year and a half, but didn't Re-Elect Barry do just that, demonizing the Republican Party? When they weren't doing the job themselves, sniping at each other and digging up old skeletons, until only one was left, who'd been a wallflower the whole time? Then the complicit media takes over the job-- ooh, Romney tied a dog to the roof of his car; what, Barry admits eating a dog in his "auto" biography? Old news, nobody cares.

I do find it amusing that it's all "keep your laws off my uterus" until it's "my uterus wants free stuff with the law's mandate".

Just like with health-care in general: the moment you make other people pay for it, they get a say in it.
