Being a Democrat is hard. There is nothing easy about racing from one outrage to another in the constant search for a Utopia that does not nor will ever exist. Shrieking and wringing their hands in despair over our so called “culture of violence”, they demand zero tolerance. So, we end up with six year olds suspended from school for playing “cops and robbers” on the playgrounds. Really? Does anyone believe this is a serious deadly threat of gun violence?
Feminism was, at one time, a principled belief. Feminists weren’t out to destroy and degrade men, just be equal in society and the work place. It meant being independent and free to choose who and what you wanted to be and do in all aspects of your life. But, feminists have decided there is just too much testosterone floating around in the US, thus the ‘war on men’ began. Now, a five year old can be deemed a ‘sexual predator’ for kissing a little girl on the cheek or even hugging another child. Even young girls are being caught up in this ridiculous haranguing of our children. http://www.parentdish.com/2006/04/06/5-year-old-has-to-apologize-for-giving-hug-on-playground/. Even an innocent game of tag can bring down the school heavies (known to most of us as teachers and principals) “Oswin said his child was kept in the principal’s office for two hours until he confessed. He was suspended, and a sexual battery charge was placed on his permanent school record.” http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2012/01/27/hercules-family-battles-playground-sex-assault-claim-against-6-year-old/
Last week the new issue of American GQ came out and it neatly encapsulated where western feminism is today. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/jan/15/beyonce-photographed-underwear-feminism
Does anyone think the use of children in BO’s announcement of new gun controls isn’t a blatant play for political purposes? Does anyone actually think a government that trafficed highpowered weapons to drug cartels can now claim the moral or righteous high ground? Does anyone really believe that the only people entitled to protection and the means of self defense are the political leftist elite and their friends? Living in an urban environment gives me a different perspective. Since few of us can afford the type of armed security that our “betters” have, we quietly and legally purchase our own means of self defense. Since the thugs have no idea who is armed, they have second thoughts about attacking. Call me cynical, but I really could care less if the bangers and thugs kill each other. In my view it’s a public service.
Crisis mongering is the by-word of this current Preezy and his cronies and the hyper-reactive left. Is it any wonder Americans are so depressed, cynical and discouraged? Honestly, not one day has passed in this miserable pResidency when there hasn’t been a crisis, mostly manufactured by the asshats in the White House. The real crisis we face is our ever escalating debt and a Preezy and Congress who act like the American taxpayer is their personal ATM. The real crisis is in another 10 years federal welfare will climb 80% (according to the CBO) Want to know what a culture of violence really looks like? Spend some time looking at the news outlets of the ME. While the Preezy extolls the virtues of a violent culture on one hand and, even supports the arming of Islamists like Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood with military weapons of war, he wants you to be defenseless. We even support the most violent terrorist states through foreign aid. How damned hypocritical is that?
The Second Amendment is there for a reason. One that rarely gets brought into the debate on gun ownership. Andrew Klavan is absolutely right
In the Second Amendment, the founding fathers sought to protect us against any Rubicon-crossing by granting Americans the right to bear their own arms and form home militias. We own guns, in other words, to defend ourselves from the possibility of government tyranny. It is part of our foundational contract with the American state. This is why, whenever some anti-gun idiot on television cries out, “Why would a hunter need an automatic rifle?” the correct answer is… well, unprintable. The hunter has a 30-06 in his gun cabinet for hunting. The M-16 he hides in the cellar is for the next American Revolution.
As with the death penalty, the argument of the progressives is that times and people have changed. Our democratic institutions and traditions are now engraved upon our hearts, they say, and no longer require the elaborate constitutional safeguards the founders provided for us. Civilized by the years, our leaders no longer pose the threat of tyranny, and guns only serve to give the anarchic power of death to individual lunatics and rednecks when it should be reserved to the state.
The conservative argument is, to put it succinctly: “Not so much.” Once again, we aggravating creatures of the right can’t help pointing out that human nature has changed neither a jot nor a tittle since we hightailed it out of Eden. Those who in ancient days sought to rule us in the name of our own good are still among us, and the only thing that keeps them on their side of the Rubicon is, in the words of that great patriot Neo from The Matrix: “Guns. Lots of guns.”
Gun control is a way of rubbing Middle America’s face in the fact that it doesn’t run things.
