Pride and Prejudice
The left takes great pride in denigrating anyone who disagrees with them. They take a great deal of pride in “being on the right side of history”, which is rarely proven to be true. The Journal News, and others, which printed with arrogant prejudice the addresses of persons having gun permits is now backfiring.
Republican Senator Greg Ball has proposed legislation that restricts gun permit information to law enforcement authorities and he strongly criticized the Journal News.
‘It is reported that the burglar used the Journal News’ interactive gun map to target a home included on the map,’ Ball said in statement.
‘The Journal News has placed the lives of these folks at risk by creating a virtual shopping list for criminals and nut jobs.
‘If the connection is proven, this is further proof that these maps are not only an invasion of privacy but that they present a clear and present danger to law-abiding, private citizens.
‘Former convicts have already testified to the usefulness of the asinine Journal News ‘gun maps’ yet the reckless editors are evidently willing to roll the dice, gambling with the lives of innocent local homeowners,’ the senator continued.
pResident Tactless again asserts “I WON” so do as I say and raise the debt ceiling. He states there will be no negotiations. He still threatens military pay and Social Security to plant fear. How about a budget that hasn’t been produced for the last four years?
Fear mongering as usual. Nothing like a 40 something man of means threatening our elderly and military personnel, again. BO has such endearing qualities. The longer BO answered Chuck Todd’s question, the lamer and more redundant he sounded. It was becoming more of a Todd interview than a “presser”. BO kept reiterating that we need to “pay the bill”. We know that, duh, but, we also know how much larger the Fed has grown under his administration. We are also aware of the crony give-aways to enable passage of any and every spending bill or new law. In private circles it’s usually known as bribery. BO managed to use a gun reference in his speech, “holding America hostage with a gun to their heads”. Oh yes, he went there. Crass and ignorant. Does anyone think he’ll be called out for it? Major Garrett asked him about his votes in the Senate against raising the debt ceiling. BO said, the American people voted and that is what he wants. In other words, he has a mandate. I do believe 47% of the voting public disagrees with that assumption on his part. He also said that if Congress gave him the power he would go ahead and do it himself. Reid, Schumer and, a host of left leaning journalists are also touting that line. That is totally creepy and a precedent no one of either political party should want to see happen. The executive branch and the Dem run Senate are decidedly doing their best to neuter anyone who has a different opinion of their policies. Rumblings of racism and bigotry are already being discussed as if this really isn’t about cold hard cash. Obama in 2006;
The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.
Obama said Congress would be “irresponsible” if it does not act quickly to raise the debt celing, putting the country back into another crisis. “Time is running short,” he said.
“While I’m willing to compromise and find common ground over how to reduce our deficit, America cannot afford another debate with this Congress over how to pay the bills they’ve already racked up,” Obama said. “To even entertain the idea of this happening, of America not paying its bills, is irresponsible. It’s absurd.”
What a difference a few years makes.
