“Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in my life, I am ashamed of my country. To be watching all of this, to be treated like this, to have our common sense and intelligence insulted the way it’s being insulted? It just makes me ashamed. Seriously, man. Here we get worked up over $44 billion. That’s the total amount of money that will not be spent that was scheduled to be spent this year. In truth, we’re gonna spend more this year than we spent last year.”I know how he feels. it's how I felt on November 7, 2012, though I phrased it much differently.
I am ... ashamed of what America has now become with the re-election of the most corrupt, failed Presidencies in American history, that of Richard Milhous Obama. A majority of voters willing to give up their liberties for the security of "gimmies' that half the population takes, paid for by the other half of us who are told we must sacrifice more. Their leaders (Obama, "Dingy" Harry Reid, David Axlerod, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz) are shrill, angry, mean voices who feed on the victim mentality, shun self-sufficiency, and keep the victim class in line by fear that their goodies will be taken away.Which has me thinking...where does it all end? It's not just the sequester, which (as Rush accurately pointed out) is just another manufactured crisis. It is how this community agitator who occupies the title of "President" uses these crises to motivate his activist army, and goes before his willing lapdogs in the activist media, who regurgitate every word he says and uses to try and instill fear in us that The Sky Is Falling unless we give up more of our hard-earned money in taxes to the god of government, as well as surrender more of our liberty and right to self-defense and security to government.
This sequester is another crisis where Thug Obama holds the nation hostage demanding more "revenue" (i.e. - higher taxes) or an increase in the debt ceiling while those who talk about fiscal sanity are outnumbered by the linguine-spined "leadership" in Congress who are willing to surrender some and kick the can down the road for the next manufactured crisis. Meanwhile, Obama and his liberals tell us they can never do without one penny less that they don't have, while we the American people are supposed to make due with less of our own money.
How about some of these government employees who will be furloughed? Well, maybe we should start with the thugs at the TSA for one, who are a bunch of government bureaucrats who are abusing their power on law-abiding citizens for the crime of travelling for pleasure or business. Did you see the latest abuse by these creeps? What was done to a handicapped three year old girl on a dream trip to Disney World?
I can't even watch this. Any person with a soul will want to shed a tear while at the same time want to break something in anger at this injustice. Oh sure, TSA now has apologized. Too late now! This poor girl isn't the only one. It's happened to other children, it's happened to women who get practically molested by these thugs, all because our government doesn't want to do any kind of real screening for fear of offEEEEEnding someone who might be from a segment of the population where these terrorist attacks have happened.
No, I'm not saying we don't need security, but the government sure is making us feel less secure for travelling by plane with this abuse. The TSA should be sued out of existence, and we should go back to using private security, which wasn't the problem to begin with pre-9/11. It was how lawsuits were being filed to make sure certain people weren't profiled. The airlines and private security companies can do a better job of security, instead of this Regime who seem to get their rocks off by abusing their power over the citizens of this nation.
Speaking about security, what about the right, guaranteed by the Second Amendment, to keep and bear arms? What part of "shall not be infringed" do these liberal morons not understand? A tragedy happens because some unbalanced loon gets a gun and all of a sudden, Dictator Obama and the Democrats use that and a stage full of children as props to convince you to give up your right to defend yourself. Liberals in Colorado talked dismissively of women as potential rape victims being unable to defend themselves with a gun, but should rely instead on a callbox, a ball-point pen, a useless "gun free zone sign," or urinating on their attacker to defend them instead.
Katie Pavlich wrote about Amanda Collins horrifying rape at Townhall.com, and how none of what these Democrats in Colorado proposed as defense measures against a rapist kept her safe.
Amanda Collins is a young rape survivor. While in college in 2007, she was raped 50 feet away from the campus police department office at the University of Nevada-Reno and was lucky to get out alive. Her attacker was James Biela, a serial rapist who raped two other women and murdered another. He attacked her at gun point in a gun free zone. At the time of the attack, Collins was in possession of a concealed weapons permit but was not in possession of her firearm due to university policies prohibiting carrying concealed weapons on campus. She was also a second degree blackbelt at the time and walked to the parking garage with a large group of people. Today, Collins did an interview with NRA News host Cam Edwards to tell her horrific story. She explained why Colorado Democratic Rep. Joe Salazar's comments about call boxes and rape whistles being sufficient self defense for women on campus will only result in more uncessary victims.
"If I had been carrying that night, two other rapes would have been prevented and a young life would have been saved," Collins said. "All of these are just sentiments that give a false sense of security. In my experience I know that the university that I attended, the University of Nevada-Reno, they didn't didn't have any call boxes the night I was attacked. They afterwards installed them but I can tell you that a call box above my head while I was straddled on the parking garage floor being brutally raped wouldn't have helped me one bit. The safe zone? I was in a safe zone and my attacker didn't care," Collins said. "It's known that I could see the police cruisers less than 50 feet away from me, from where I was being attacked but the moment I saw those cruisers, I knew at the same time that no one was coming for me....they were all off duty. The offices had closed. They weren't in their cruisers, there was no one there. A whistle wouldn't have gotten anybody's attention. It was isolated, it was late at night. It's really frustrating that I'm supposed to hand over my own protection to a man but they're not able to guarantee our protection and the comments that this representative made about women not knowing if they're going to be raped or accidentally shooting the wrong person was extremely offensive because he specifically targeted female students. So, is he saying that all women are unable to make sound decisions in the midst of that, that we should go against our God given gut instinct that something was wrong? I knew something was wrong the moment I was grabbed from behind."Meanwhile, Richard Milhous Obama's activist army is out doing their community agitator's work, while he reads off the names of people while saying "they deserve a vote." Well Mister Obama, doesn't Amanda Collins deserve a vote as well? Doesn't Columbine High survivor Evan Todd deserve a vote? Why is it that, in the name of security, you and your liberal allies want to punish those who obey the laws, not the ones who break gun laws and carry them illegally? Why do you want the law-abiding to give up more liberty in the name of security?
Which is why I ask, where does it all end? When will Americans finally say "enough is enough." Quit taking more of our hard earned money for your failed social programs and crony-capitalist payoffs, and quit taking our liberty in the name of security?
