STILL a Gun Free Zone- Ft. Hood ATTACKED AGAIN

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

FT 1When will it finally dawn on this administration that gun free zones are prime targets for those who don’t give a damn about other people’s lives?

Ft. Hood 2009.

A number of schools.

A movie theater.

The DC Navy yard.

The Navy Yard again.

And yesterday…Another shooting at Ft. Hood Texas.

Early reports regarding yesterday’s shooting had 3 dead soldiers, 1 dead shooter, Ivan Lopez, a U.S. Army Specialist who shot himself and some 16 wounded.

Those numbers may change but the key to those early reports was the manner in which the shooter was taken down.

By his own hand.

At Ft. Hood nearly 5 years ago, the terrorist Hassan was cut down by a civilian contractor Security Officer.

At the DC Navy Yard in 2013, Arron Alexis was killed by the DC Police.

That is because, on all MILITARY installations…Those on them are NOT allowed to carry weapons.

This is NOT a new regulation by any means and those blaming this on Obama need to step back. The regulation banning guns from our military basses is some 20 years old…

Shifting Focus From Malaysia Back to Obama’s Malaise

Monday, March 17th, 2014

pitch 1With the world focused on a missing Malaysian airliner and the dire consequences associated with its possible use…Nobody can be happier than Obama.

The news cycle, all 24 hours of it for the past 9 days, has centered on what happened to flight 370 and NONE of those 24 hours have been used to shine the light of truth on Obama.

It’s high time we use that particular spotlight.

While Russia and Putin were busy holding a mock referendum regarding the fate of Crimea and preparing their plans to take Ukraine into the old Soviet fold…

What exactly was Obama doing?

He was whining to Ryan Seacrest that he has been unfairly maligned for…

Wearing mom jeans.

Yes…You read that correctly.

“I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans.”

“The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans. There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans, mainly because I was out on the pitcher’s mound and I didn’t want to feel confined while I was pitching, and I think I’ve paid my penance for that. I got whacked pretty good. Since that time, my jeans fit very well.”

The Soviet Union is reforming under the boot of a former KGB agent and OUR Dictator wants to be cut some slack for wearing MOM JEANS???

They’re bad enough and to make it worse…

From a Constitutional to Banana Republic

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Tuesday evening, the Dictator delivered his State of Future Mandates speech to a 60% ungrateful nation.

Don’t they realize what the remaining 40% who approve of his highness have embraced?

BIG GOVERNMENT is WORKING in their minds.

There are now more people collecting welfare than ever before.

Big government works.

There are more Americans than ever utilizing food stamps.

Big government works.

More and more Americans have applied for and received disability compensation than ever before and, it doesn’t even matter whether or not they actually need it.

Big government works.

More Americans have been thrown off the health insurance plans they had and, would have liked to have kept, than have signed up for the propagandized, “BETTER” and more “AFFORDABLE” Obamacare and, of those who have signed up, the overwhelming majority are those signing up for expanded Medicaid along with those Americans who are older and more in need of healthcare than those who are young, healthy and NECESSARY to carry the financial burden.

Big…Government…

Obama Promised Transparency – Robert Gates Delivers!!

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

Well, now…Retired Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has written a book, “Duty” which will be released within days and IN that book, he lets loose on several things but, the one that is raising the most eye brows, is the revelation regarding both Hillary and Obama and their opposition to the 2007 surge in Iraq.

Let’s get a few things straight here before we delve into the ramifications and the meaning of that bombshell.

First…Robert Gates has served this country through various administrations. He was the Deputy CIA Director for Reagan…The Deputy National Security Advisor and later, the CIA Director for Bush 41…And, the Secretary of Defense for Bush 43…A position he was asked to continue, by Obama.

Gates became the only career CIA OFFICER ever to rise to the level of CIA DIRECTOR and the only questionable activity in his record was due to the Iran/Contra affair but…

In the final report from the Independent Counsel for Iran-Contra Scandal, Gates was deemed, “close to many figures who played significant roles in the Iran/contra affair and was in a position to have known of their activities. The evidence developed by Independent Counsel did not warrant indictment…”

Gates’ service clearly, was driven by patriotism rather than partisanism.

There are those who claim he is doing nothing in this book except grinding an old axe but…

Camouflage and Christmas Lights

Tuesday, December 24th, 2013

Every year, it seems, somebody asks me what I want for Christmas.

Over the years, the list has changed.

As a boy, my list included toys, maybe a new bike or a sled and maybe, just maybe, a puppy.

Such a list, I believe, is still the norm for kids today.

As I grew older, the list included more, substantial items.

A calculator, a new stereo, hiking boots and maybe, just maybe, a puppy.

By the time I was in college, my Christmas list had evolved to include a new camera lens, something for my first car…a 1977 Chevy Chevette,  money for spring break and maybe, just maybe…

Morally Bankrupt Budget Screws Our Veterans

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

In what may well be THE most hideous, shameful action taken by the 113th congress…

A budget bill PASSED in the senate yesterday that KEEPS INTACT, an IRS credit of $4.2 BILLION DOLLARS for ILLEGAL ALIENS while it CUTS pension benefits to RETIRED, WOUNDED MEMBERS OF OUR MILITARY!!!

Livid doesn’t begin to cut it.

For the next 20 years, the retirement cost of living benefits of those who have voluntarily worn the uniform of our nation and were forced into retirement due to the grievous injuries they received while defending OUR freedoms…OUR liberties and those of others in places half a world away are being CUT and, in some cases, those cuts could amount to a total of up to $124 THOUSAND dollars over the 20 years in question.

How in the world those who voted FOR this budget can look themselves in the mirror…Sleep at night or, better yet…FACE A WOUNDED WARRIOR…Is beyond comprehension.

These courageous heroes, men and women, were promised these benefits.

They knew the dangers going in. They faced their duty with the sort of steadfast courage most of us will never know or understand and far, far too many came home with the scars, seen and unseen to now discover that the very government that vowed their duty would be rewarded…LIED to them.

This is OUTRAGEOUS!!!!!

Veterans Day: Thanks is Not Enough

Monday, November 11th, 2013

On the eleventh hour or the eleventh day of the eleventh month…

That was when, in 1918, the fighting ceased in WWI.

It started as Armistice Day…The recognition of WWI Veterans at the time the war to end all wars…Ended.

Over the years and the decades, the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month came to be a day of recognition for all veterans of the United States military.

Today is that day.

There are those, thankfully few and far between, who can’t for the lives of them bring themselves to honor our veterans, and shame on them.

They are the most ignorant of fools and the most foolish of the ignorant.

They are of the ilk bent on burning the flag to make their statements and far, far too knot-headed to realize that those for whom they display their disdain are the very reason they have the right to do so.

To hell with the fools and the ignorant.

Today…

Liberal Gun Policies Just Killed 12 More People

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

In the wake of yesterday’s horrific events in Washington DC, we have learned one thing.

We have learned that liberals haven’t learned one damn thing.

What happened on November 5th, 2009 at Ft. Hood happened again yesterday at the Navy Yard in our Nation’s  Capitol.

Before the shooter was dead and before the smell of gun powder had cleared from Building 197, liberals, those elected, those who sell socialist snake oil via the MSM and celebrities who think they are so important that they MUST open THEIR pie holes were once again, beating the GUN CONTROL war drums.

They need to shut the hell up.

I have a couple of questions to pose to those knot-heads.

WHY do they think Hasan opened fire at Ft. Hood?

WHY do they think that freak opened fire at Sandy Hook?

WHY do they think Aaron Alexis opened fire yesterday at the DC Navy Yard?

I’ll happily tell them why…

Aiding and Abetting al Qaeda in Sryia is TREASON!!!

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

Today is September 10th.

Or, to be more precise…9/11 eve.

On the eve of the day we were attacked by al Qaeda, not once but TWICE, I find it beyond disgraceful that our current occupier of the oval office is trying to gin up SUPPORT for bombing Syria and, thus ASSISTING…

AL QAEDA!!!

We are at war with al Qaeda.

Al Qaeda is our enemy.

Obama is trying, in desperation, to find enough votes from congress to launch an attack on Syria to aid and abet al Qaeda in taking control of yet another country.

It is, in no uncertain terms…

TREASON.

Obama says it will not be another Iraq or another Afghanistan.

Is he sure?

I’ll tell you what it WILL be…

It will be the same situation as it was the last time our government interfered in another country’s civil war.

It will be another VIETNAM.

Has John McCain slipped so far that HE doesn’t remember VIETNAM???

He was held captive there for more than 5 years. He was tortured there.

To this day, McCain is unable to raise his arms above his chest because of his injuries and yet, there is John McCain, willing to start the NEXT Vietnam…

Bombing Syria – “FOR THE CHILDREN!!!”

Monday, September 9th, 2013

It’s absurd.

It has, for decades, been the whining cry of socialists and it has been as overplayed as that stupid race card.

“Do it for the children.”

“Oh…DO it for the CHILDREN (sob, sob) do it for the children.”

Whenever and wherever, common sense and logic interfere with socialists and their agenda…

“WE MUST DO IT FOR THE CHILDREN!!!”

As soon as all their unsubstantiated rhetoric is proven false…

“HOW CAN YOU SAY NO??? DO IT FOR THE POOR LITTLE CHILDREN!!!!!”

Millions…HUNDREDS of millions…BILLIONS…HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS…TRILLIONS of dollars have been goaded out of We the People because simpering elected officials are wetting their collective beds over the possibly of NOT “doing it for the children.”

“OH…THE HUMANITY…

“DO IT FOR THE CHILDREN!!!!!”

No matter the situation. Regardless of the circumstances. In SPITE of the degree of NONSENSE and in the FACE of any reality…

It has become as predictable as an ACME anvil falling on Wile E. Coyote.

A long, drawn-out slide whistle, pitching down…a second of silence…a faint…boom…
