Having now taken some time off to recharge the old batteries and to deal with some rather pressing issues, I am now posting regularly over at Fellowship of the Minds.

I am also going to be getting the Notepad back up and running as well in the coming days, so be sure and take a peek once in a while.

Wanna be Executed in Georgia? Just Have a Miscarriage

Sounds crazy, right? Of course it does, but if one kook of a state rep. has his way, that is exactly what could happen here in my home state.

People like Bobby Franklin give Christianity a bad name, are an embarrassment to my state, and have no business in public office at any level.

The Repubs Aren't Getting It Done


Sorry, but thus far the new Republican-controlled House of Representatives has been anything but promising and stimulating. Okay, so they voted to repeal Obama care. Actually, that was an easy vote. They know it was going nowhere in the Senate, and it is said that happened the past that they knew that The Community Organizer would veto it, so let's just use the word "symbolic" and move on here. Then we have their attempt at cutting the budget. They announce a figure in the neighborhood of $75 billion. Then some reporters, including our own. Jamie Dupree, point out that the Republicans are using the old baseline budgeting trick. That is, they're announcing the budget cut not from present spending levels but from projected increased spending levels in future years. Now that's partially budget cut and partially reductions in future spending increases. This is not the sort of gamesmanship that the tea party voters signed up for last November. The real figure for Republican budget cut proposals? That would be somewhere in the $35 billion range; about one half of what they were trying to pass off to the voters as their grandiose attempt at cutting the federal budget.

The truth here is that we have Republicans that are looking harder at their reelection chances -- harder at protecting their privileges, their perks, and their power -- then they are at doing the job the voters sent them to Washington to do last November.

You will find the rest of Neal's take on things at this link.

While I, too, am disappointed, I cannot say I am surprised. After all, these are still politicians, and they all seem to have only one goal, and that is to win reelection, no matter what letter follows their name.

Neal gives the republicans a C+, but I'm giving then a D- so far. While I'm not yet ready to declare last November's election a bust, I'm getting awfully close.

Let's hope the TEA Party supporters who were so instrumental in flipping the House last November will keep the pressure on those they sent to Washington, as this country is fast running out of time, as well as excuses.

Just Exactly Who Is Barry Hussein Soetoro Obama?

After listening very carefully to what our current POTUS and CIC had to say about the Egyptian uprising yesterday, I think it's time for the House of representatives to put aside the bug hunts for now, and start digging around in a very focused and expedited effort to find out just who exactly Barry Hussein Obama Soetoro is, as well as what foreign influences he may be working under.

This man has done nothing but stick his finger into the eyes of our traditional allies, sided with stinking communists (Honduras, China) and the camel-washing savages (Iran, Muslim Brotherhood, etc.) at every opportunity.

There is no possible way this impostor is an American, I don't care if he was born in the top of the Statue of Liberty.

As I see it, Barry Hussein Obama is the single greatest threat to this country currently out there.

They are Coming for our Guns

Anytime there is a nationally reported shooting you can always count on the lefty gun-grabbers to start falling out of the rafters and, in unison, begin screaming for even more restrictions on law-abiding gun owners.

Notice I didn't say more restrictions on criminals, because the gun-snatchers don't care about criminals and their guns. After all, no gun law ever passed has ever kept a gun out of the hands of a determined criminal, and they know this, but it doesn't matter to them. Besides, the government pretty much knows who and where the criminals are, and they can round them up anytime they like.

No, the guns they fear and are working toward grabbing are the guns owned by you and me.

In the wake of the tragic shooting that recently took place in Tucson, the anti-gunners have wasted no time in pushing for even more restrictions on firearm ownership. Of course, further restrictions will do nothing to prevent future Tucsons from happening, but it does get the American sheeple more and more used to the idea of firearm regulation by the federal government - never mind that the federal government has no constitutional authority to regulate firearms to begin with.

In the days leading up to President Obama's SOTU address, many lefties in the MSM were expressing hope he was going to propose tougher gun restrictions. I, too, was expecting Obama to do so, but for whatever reason, that didn't happen.

That is not to say that the current administration isn't planning on exploiting the Arizona tragedy to further advance their anti-gun agenda. On the contrary, they are presently gearing up to do exactly that.

Via (emphasis mine):

At the beginning of his State of the Union address, President Obama tipped his hat to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who’s now recuperating in a Houston medical facility. But throughout the hourlong speech, he never addressed the issue at the core of the Giffords tragedy—gun control—and what lawmakers would, or should, do to reform American firearm-access laws.


But in the next two weeks, the White House will unveil a new gun-control effort in which it will urge Congress to strengthen current laws, which now allow some mentally unstable people, such as alleged Arizona shooter Jared Loughner, to obtain certain assault weapons, in some cases without even a background check.

Tuesday night after the speech, Obama adviser David Plouffe said to NBC News that the president would not let the moment after the Arizona shootings pass without pushing for some change in the law, to prevent another similar incident. “It’s a very important issue, and one I know there’s going to be debate about on the Hill.”

You will find the rest at this link.

I am not aware of any state that allows people who have a history of mental instability to legally purchase a firearm. I am not saying it doesn't happen, but I would be willing to bet it is a fairly rare occurrence. And even if a background check causes a licensed dealer to reject the sale, that isn't going to stop the would-be criminal from obtaining a firearm from other sources. No law that could ever be written would prevent that.

Many of my fellow conservatives appear to be taking comfort in the fact that the republicans now have control of the House of Representatives, and this somehow means there will be no further restrictions imposed on gun ownership for at least the next two years.

I'm not so sure about that, as if there is one stark lesson history has taught us about government, it is that the larger and more powerful government becomes, the more corrupt and tyrannical it becomes, and the party affiliation of those running it doesn't seem to matter all that much.

Our founders new how evil and tyrannical big government could be, which is why they strove to place limits on it in our nation's founding document.

Sadly, we have strayed so far from that original ideal that we now have government taking half of what we earn and giving it to others, bureaucrats telling us what kind of cars we may own, what kind of light bulbs we may use, what we can and cannot eat, how much energy we may use, what doctors we can and cannot see, and molesting our daughters and feeling up our wives at our airports.

I could go on and on, but you get the picture.

The way things are going in America these days, I can easily envision a day when our God-given 2nd Amendment rights might very well be the only thing standing between us and a tyrannical, oppressive government. However, if we continue to allow said government to chip away at those rights, we are going to wake up one morning and find ourselves to be little more than government slaves.

Don't think it can't happen here. As recently as five years ago, I didn't think something like Barack Hussein Obama could happen here, either.

If Dave were giving the SOTU speech:

My fellow Americans, the state of the union currently sucks, and it sucks worse as each day (hour?) passes.

The state of our union will continue to deteriorate until Barack Hussein Obama has been bounced out of office, and his hideous policies have been reversed in their entirety.

We can either do that now, or we can wait until November of 2012 comes around, and hope we will have acted in time to save this republic as it was founded.

This is one case where good things are not going to come to those who wait.

Thank you, and may God bless America.

Obama Welcomes the Rise of the Chicoms


China's rapid growth is often painted as a threat to American interests. But President Obama said today that the country's economic progress benefits the United States and opens the door to greater international stability and humanitarian progress.

"We welcome China's rise," Mr. Obama said at a press conference at the White House with Chinese President Hu Jintao. "I absolutely believe that China's peaceful rise is good for the world, and it's good for America."

He added, "We just want to make sure that that rise occurs in a way that reinforces international norms and international rules, and enhances security and peace, as opposed to it being a source of conflict either in the region or around the world."

You can read the rest at this link, if you can stomach it.

China is poised to eat our economic breakfast, lunch, as well as our dinner, and it appears the former community pisser-offer just pushed their chair much closer to the table.

Perhaps Nixon's opening the door to China wasn't such a hot idea after all.
