News of Import 2-4-2013


“No man's life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session.”  Mark Twain

On a personal note I wanted to share this news, that of the passing of an American hero with four tours in Iraq, 160 confirmed sniper kills and named “the devil of Ramadi” by insurgents, Chris Kyle was shot by an American in TX. I come from a multi-generational military family.  You value our veterans and this loss is personal for me as he was a great person who tirelessly gave of his time to mentor vets and help the wounded while tirelessly defending the 2nd Amendment and other rights. According to a local news station, police have arrested a suspect in the slayings. The suspect reportedly shot Kyle at point-blank range while he attempted to aid a fellow veteran. As soldiers say, never leave a man behind and this is what Kyle was doing when he was gunned down.

Quote from Chris, “I began teaching my son how to shoot when he was two, starting with the basics of a BB rifle. My theory is that kids get into trouble because of curiosity—if you don’t satisfy it, you’re asking for big problems. If you inform them and carefully instruct them on safety when they’re young, you avoid a lot of the trouble. My son has learned to respect weapons. I’ve always told him, if you want to use a gun, come get me. There’s nothing I like better than shooting.”

Counting the Ways the Media Lies About the Economy

  1. Poverty's increasing.
  2. Gas prices have almost doubled.
  3. The price of health care premiums has exploded and will only explode more (but-but-but Obama said…!)
  4. Poor and middle class incomes are falling.
  5. One-in-five Americans are on food stamps.
  6. The non-partisan GAO says Obama's exploding deficit is unsustainable.
  7.  Eight million people are looking for work.
  8. Our labor force has shrunk to thirty-year levels (170k more dropped out
  9.  last month).
  10. Chronic unemployment hasn't been this bad since World War II.
  11. The long-term unemployment rate is over 14%, and if the labor force was merely the same size today as it was the day Obama took office, today's unemployment rate would be closer to 11%.

Progressive policy on guns has been to “protect” victims by moving to make more of them. Why the bloodlust? Why the desire to render law-abiding Americans helpless? Dianne Feinstein proposes to dry up 150 firearms, even those cited as legal in
Miller, which is the very definition of disarmament. One lawmaker said during her press conference that those needing help could simply “call 9-1-1.” As I’ve said previously, if you want to gamble your life and the life of your family during the average 10 minutes (nationally) it will take for the authorities to arrive, make that choice for you. Don’t make it for my family. I don’t believe that criminals will stop in their tracks and decide to wait until the cops arrive and it’s an even playing field. I don’t believe in preaching against firearms while depending upon people who possess them to show up and save me when I dial 9-1-1. That’s the other part of the problem with progressive logic: the cops have zero obligation to protect your life. Castle Rock vs. Gonzalez.
