Question becomes will Gov. Howler & Co. be smart, or will they decide "We give orders, and you will obey!" ?
Writing at Human Events, Raquel Okyay suggests that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is facing a near revolt over the NY SAFE Act, and that more than 90% of the Empire State’s gun owners will simply ignore the long gun registration requirement in the law. Perhaps just as shocking (to Cuomo’s legion of statists, anyway) is that law enforcement itself does not want to enforce the law.
New Yorkers gauge registration and confiscation of firearms in the aftermath of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s landmark gun control law, the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013.Considering Cuomo, I'm expecting some level of "If we screw enough people, the others will fall into line."
...Low compliance rates will put the governor in an interesting position especially in an election year, said Nojay. “I think registration rates are going to be less than 10 percent.”
County clerks, district attorneys, county sheriffs and local law enforcement do not want to enforce the S.A.F.E. Act which is now the governor’s law, he said. “They regard it as having nothing to do with law enforcement, it will not prevent crime, it will not prevent tragedy, it is a law of pure politics and they don’t want to have anything to do with it.”
And so it matters immensely when we read:
Cuomo is telling people he will enforce the law, he said. “This governor walks into every room looking for a fight and if he can’t find one he’ll start one.”There is a difference between an enforcer, and an oppressor. Frankly, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo doesn’t seem smart enough to know the difference, and therein lies the danger to us all.
“This is a constitutional crisis in the making,” he said. “The question is: Will the governor start pounding the table to force them to be the enforcer.”
Put bluntly, I don't give a rats ass if the EPA approved 15% gasohol; it's an idiot idea that'll destroy lots of engines. Which, from past performance, is what the effing EPA is actually after.
Have a friend who was a big gasohol booster; right up until it trashed the engine of his car, and the mechanic showed/told him exactly how. That slapped him with the Reality™ Glove. And I've known/known of too many people who've had problems because of the stuff.
Plus the most basic thing: If it was worth doing, it wouldn't need all these damned subsidies.
Any respect I had for Cummings went down the toilet when he started saying and doing everything possible to prevent full inquiry into Fast & Furious, and started calling anybody upset by the piles of bodies a racist. This is just a continuance of "Screw the people dying, screw the breaking of law, I have to protect Obama & Co. no matter what."
The one thing I'll say about the current budget deal: Either Ryan is infected with the 'make a deal, no matter what' idiocy, or he got rolled. That he then proceeded to insult and belittle anyone calling him on it(in company with Yellowstain Boehner) just tells me he's become a standard DC dirtbag. Especially with him now playing "Oh, I think the tea party and actual conservatives are important(as long as they shut up and stop causing me problems)."
One more reason to refer to this President as a corrupt, disgusting, worthless bastard:
In an effort to cut defense spending, the Obama Administration plans to cut health benefits for active duty and retired military personnel and their families while not touching the benefits enjoyed by unionized civilian defense workers.
The move, congressional aides suggested, is to force those individuals into Obamacare, Bill Gertz reported at the Washington Beacon.
Speaking of corrupt, disgusting bastards,
We have written mostly about the corruption of Greens in America, where Al Gore has become a standing joke. But the Daily Mail has performed the valuable service of exposing the corruption that is rampant among British environmentalists; specifically, global warming alarmists:
The Mail on Sunday today reveals the extraordinary web of political and financial interests creating dozens of eco-millionaires from green levies on household energy bills.
A three-month investigation shows that some of the most outspoken campaigners who demand that consumers pay the colossal price of shifting to renewable energy are also getting rich from their efforts.
And we're supposed to trust these bastards to be honest and unbiased why, again?
Seems fitting that this shit is happening in the PROM, doesn't it?
