(Feel like a slave to the federal government YET? Are you broke? Have you lost your home, job, business? The 1st and 2nd Amendments are the last bastions of freedom for sovereigns. Democrats Carolyn McCarthy and Robert Brady want those too.)
“NEVER LET A GOOD CRISIS GO TO WASTE” – Saul Alinsky
I’ve been keeping on eye on the clock since the Giffords shooting to see how long it would take for some form of gun control legislation (that was probably written by a left wing think tank) to be introduced. What did it take; 26 hours? And all because of a liberal leftwing moonbat with no sense of personal responsibility decided it was a constructive idea to gun down a bunch of people to prove whatever delusional point he was suffering from, (or was he a liberal leftwing moonbat?).
How about we have gun control for registered democrats and any other granola eating moonbat, and just leave everybody else alone. Better yet, let’s move all the kumbaya leftists and democrats to Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Massachusetts and let them fend for themselves. We would only need a few states as more and more Americans open their eyes and ears, do the math, and flee the Democratic party and blue states.
One of the fiercest gun-control advocates in Congress, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), pounced on the shooting massacre in Tucson Sunday, promising to introduce legislation as soon as Monday targeting the high-capacity ammunition the gunman used.
“My staff is working on looking at the different legislation fixes that we might be able to do and we might be able to introduce as early as tomorrow,” McCarthy told POLITICO in a Sunday afternoon phone interview.
Gun control activists cried it was time to reform weapons laws in the United States, almost immediately after a gunman killed six and injured 14 more, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, in Arizona on Saturday.
Many said that people with a history of mental instability, like the alleged shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, should not be able to buy a gun — and no one should be able to buy stockpiles of ammunition used by the 22-year-old assailant.
McCarthy said she plans to confer with House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to see “if we can work something through” in the coming week.
McCarthy’s spokesman confirmed the legislation will target the high-capacity ammunition clips the Arizona gunman allegedly used in the shooting, but neither he or the congresswoman offered any further details.
“Again, we need to look at how this is going to work, to protect people, certainly citizens, and we have to look at what I can pass,” McCarthy said. “I don’t want to give the NRA – excuse the pun – the ammunition to come at me either.”
Pennsylvania Rep. Robert Brady, a Democrat from Philadelphia, told CNN that he also plans to take legislative action. He will introduce a bill that would make it a crime for anyone to use language or symbols that could be seen as threatening or violent against a federal official, including a member of Congress.
Another vocal supporter for gun control, Illinois Rep. Mike Quigley, told POLITICO that he hopes “something good” can come from the Arizona tragedy – perhaps discussion on a new assault weapon ban, sales at gun shows and tracing measures.
And how about Robert Brady’s grand infringement of free speech at it’s best? “A federal crime to use imagery or language intended to threaten or incite violence against a Member of Congress or federal official“, and presidential level protection for the very criminals derailing the country whilst they go about their business turning America into a third world banana republic. Bobby obviously has no clue how many Americans are completely AWAKE AND PRESENT, and how many more are waking up each and every day as they lose everything they have spent their lives working for. Bob also does not understand that the hate speech is coming from his very own political base, the left – NOT conservatives; and yet, we are vocally protesting for their right to speak their minds. Imagine that? Can someone send Judge Napolitano over to Bob’s house to explain the Constitution to him?
Bob; you are a frakkin’ dumbass, a fascist, and you need to find a real job creating something, not controlling something.
Rep. Robert Brady is trying to put new Members and their spouses at ease by introducing legislation that would make it a federal crime to use imagery or language intended to threaten or incite violence against a Member of Congress or federal official.
“The spouses are in an uproar,” the Pennsylvania Democrat told CNN on Sunday. “They are panicking.”
He said he plans to introduce the legislation on the first day the House reconvenes. It would expand protections now afforded to the president to other civil servants.
Brady specifically criticized former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s online “hit list” of Members whom the Republican wanted defeated in 2010. Giffords was on that list, which used crosshairs on a map to identify districts to target during the midterm elections.
Members “are as out there as much as anybody else, and we are trying to criminalize behavior that puts bull’s-eyes over Members of Congress and their districts,” Brady said. “We’re going to make that a federal crime.
“All we’re doing is trying to protect ourselves and protect our staff members,” he continued. “I’m not going to hide or not go to my events or public events just because of this incident.”
I dragged this out of the vault for all those lefties that still don’t understand the true spirit of the 2nd Amendment, and why every American should be required to own a gun.
When I read yesterday that Iran had been elected to the UN’s Commission on Women’s Rights, I had to wonder what deal was actually being made in the backrooms for such an anti-woman regime to get a seat on that board. A woman’s true value as nothing more than a bargaining chip in world affairs is evidenced by the deal made to keep Iran out of the UN’s Human Rights Council. The UN could not just stand up and tell Iran to clean up their act before they are allowed a seat? They had to trade women for the deal? Sure, why not; women are just stupid cows; veil or not.
Now the story comes out. Here is just one of the relevant quotes:
Early this week Iran’s foreign ministry said the Asia group had agreed to support Iran’s bid for membership of the women’s rights body, and implied that this was a concession in return for Iran’s agreement to withdraw its candidacy for another U.N. body, the Human Rights Council.
(CNSNews.com) – The United States and 12 other Western democracies kept silent this week as Iran was nominated for membership of the United Nations’ Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), thus enabling Iran to get the seat.
In the four-year period beginning in 2011, Iran will help set U.N. policy on gender equality and the advancement of women.
Pay attention people, the national biometric ID card is part of the immigration reform bill being proposed by those two progressive fascists, republican Lindsey Graham and democrat Chuckie Schumer. As Judge Napolitano states, the Real ID Act was passed in 2005 authorizing a national ID card but the states have resisted it.
If this bill passes with this authority intact, you will no longer be free men and women to do as you please within the confines of the law; you will be cows, or worse, slaves to be kept track of. At what point are we going to tell the government to shove it by either not paying taxes or taking an unpaid one week vacation (also known as a National Strike) – quickly followed by mass firings (of elected officials turned traitors)?
Read the Dems’ outline just released on Wednesday, here. (H/T BB)
I am so freaking p*ssed that my hair is ON FIRE!!!! Not only has Nancy and Dems gone against the wishes of the American public, but they have made the situation even worse for us poor shmucks in Hawaii.
I do not require my loyal readers to watch the entirety of Skeletor’s speech, either with or without their puke bucket as there are so many unbelievable statements that even the Founding Fathers are cringing.
I would like to point out to Idiot Child Nancy that you cannot come to the floor of the House or anywhere else with “great humility and great pride” simultaneously.
I would also like to state that when Nancy Pelosi says this bill is personal, she does actually have one thing correct as this has become even MORE personal to the Monster’s household.
I would like to thank Nancy and Mazie for the Hirono Amendment. When Nancy uses the word “opportunity” to describe this bill, she is lying. Tomorrow, I and my spousal unit will still be unemployed with no cobra, no health insurance, and no insurance for our child because of Mazie Hirono and Nancy Pelosi. In the State of Hawaii, if you wish to have health insurance, you either pay through the nose for Kaiser (the only choice) or you pay through the nose through your employer’s health plan. There are no other options. And for those that do not understand, the choice here would be between health insurance for the family or a home to live in each and every month.
This taxpaying resident of the State of Hawaii would like to thank the Democrats and Mazie Hirono especially for our continued slavery to the insurance companies and our employers (those that have one).
Today’s Are You Freakin’ Kidding Me? Award goes to a british curate that told his female parishioners in a sermon to sit down, shut up, and submit to their husbands because you women are the reason for the high divorce rates (like the husband has absolutely nothing to do with whatever problems caused the divorce).
This would be one of the reasons I am no longer part of a faith that relegates a human being to slave status, and why today’s woman might be thinking twice about getting married…ever. Think about whether or not any woman really needs to get married to a man anymore. As for this curate, allow me to just take a wild guess that this guy is probably a leftist that really wants to destroy the family unit. I swear every single one of their brains is wired ass backwards. (Ladies and Gentlemen? Please let us know exactly what you think in comments about this curate and his sermon.)
Curate outrages congregation by telling women to ‘be silent and submit to your husbands’
With Valentine’s Day approaching, parishioners might have expected a more heartwarming message. Instead, they got a sermon urging women to ‘submit’ to their husbands.
The apparent lack of obedience of ‘modern women’ was blamed for the high divorce rate. In a sermon entitled ‘Marriage and women’ last Sunday, curate Mark Oden, told the congregation at St Nicholas Church in Sevenoaks, Kent: ‘We know marriage is not working.
‘We only need to look at figures – one in four children have divorced parents. Wives, submit to your own husbands.’
Under fire: Vicar Angus MacLeay (left) told his female parishioners to ‘be silent’ and ‘submit to your husbands’. Just days later his curate Mark Oden (right) blamed the behaviour of modern women for the UK’s high divorce rate
It is understood some women parishioners – and even their husbands – have vowed never to attend the church again.
Its vicar is Angus MacLeay, 50, a married father of two who is a leading member of the evangelical group Reform, which is opposed to the appointment of women clergy.
The group has produced a leaflet, called ‘The role of women in the local church’, which uses Biblical quotes to urge them to ‘remain silent’ and telling them ‘wives are to submit to their husbands in everything’.
One woman churchgoer said she was ‘disgusted’ by the sermon, adding: ‘How can they talk that way in the 21st Century?’
Another, who also did not want to be named, said: ‘We’re supposed to let our husbands talk for us and remain silent? What kind of medieval sermon is that?’
Mr Oden a married father of three, is reported to have said: ‘I am passionate about helping people to have healthy marriages. I did not set out to unnecessarily offend people, but I stand by what God has said in his word, the Bible.’
Mr MacLeay, a Scotsman who sometimes wears a kilt to church, said: ‘There are times when the Bible challenges modern society. It recognises that women are fully equal to men, but it also recognises that in certain areas of life they may have different roles.
‘Of course, in marriage, our main concern, it is the responsibility of husbands to show consideration and love for their wives.’
On its website, St Nicholas Church describes itself as a church where ‘we believe that the Bible is the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith.’
Reform believes that leaders of a church should be men and say the leaflet was produced to explain this view. Sources in the group said the leaflet had been misinterpreted.
The source added: ‘People misunderstand the word “submit”. In this context it means saying how can I be most beneficial in this relationship as a helper. To submit does not make you an inferior being.’
A woman of 24 who was at the sermon said: ‘Isn’t it a vicar’s job not to tell you what everyone wants to hear and what society says, but to help explain the Bible says about issues?’
