Pravda newspaper front page (around 1950s). The head article title says: From the Soviet Leadership (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

…it (gun control) is about power and a total power over the people. There is a lot of desire to bad mouth the Tsar, particularly by the Communists, who claim he was a tyrant, and yet under him we were armed and under the progressives disarmed. Do not be fooled by a belief that progressives, leftists hate guns. Oh, no, they do not. What they hate is guns in the hands of those who are not marching in lock step of their ideology. They hate guns in the hands of those who think for themselves and do not obey without question.

The gentleman from the former Soviet Union has it spot on. Control is the issue. Think about this for a few minutes. If the second amendment falls, what of the others? Free speech, illegal searches and seizures (already happening to some in the name of “security”), having a national guardsmen in your home,  and the right to not incriminate yourself just to name a few. A further look at amendments and the constitution suggest that if the 2nd amendment falls that it would also be possible for the 22nd amendment to be ignored as well. Think on the ramifications of that, a president seeking a third term….

Mr. Stanislav’s article discusses the disarmament of the Russian population, particularly the former members of the tsar’s army:

Moscow fell, for example, not from a lack of weapons to defend it, but from the lying guile of the Reds. Ten thousand Reds took Moscow and were opposed only by some few hundreds of officer cadets and their instructors. Even then the battle was fierce and losses high. However, in the city alone, at that time, lived over 30,000 military officers (both active and retired), all with their own issued weapons and ammunition, plus tens of thousands of other citizens who were armed. The Soviets promised to leave them all alone if they did not intervene. They did not and for that were asked afterwards to come register themselves and their weapons: where they were promptly shot.

Trust politicians much? I don’t. Again the idea of the slippery slope applies. If we give up our right to bear arms, what recourse do we have as, “The People,” if some or all of our enumerated rights disappear? I would go into unenumerated rights but Senator Fienstein just wouldn’t be able to comprehend my argument or I would have to direct her to John Locke if she knows who that is.

And now for the Soviet Union’s slippery slope:

… the Reds learned from their Civil War experience. One of the first things they did was to disarm the population. From that point, mass repression, mass arrests, mass deportations, mass murder, mass starvation were all a safe game for the powers that were. The worst they had to fear was a pitchfork in the guts or a knife in the back or the occasional hunting rifle.

Sounds like fun doesn’t it?

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government” – Thomas Jefferson

MATT LAUER, TODAY: So bottom line, would raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans have a chilling effect on hiring in this country?

WARREN BUFFETT: No, and I think would have a great effect in terms of the morale of the middle class, who have seen themselves paying high payroll taxes, income taxes. And then they watch guys like me end up paying a rate that’s below that, you know, paid by the people in my office.

Eat the rich!

Bill Whittle’s Firewall covers the practical problems and why it makes no sense even if the arch-left got everything they want – even if everyone was liquidated, it wouldn’t work:

Though that’s from last year, it’s worth noting that blaming “the rich” is sure easy to do.

Seeing as how Warren Buffet is a multi-billionaire, his idea of pushing for a higher income tax would hurt up-and-coming businesses – not Berkshire Hathaway, which unless you’re rich, you can’t even buy a real share of – is only going to act as a barrier to entry for new businesses.  This is just good ol’ crony capitalism.  The ultra-big business makes deals with government that make it more difficult for new businesses to threaten them.  This is why, for example, Obamacare affects companies with 50 employees.  It keeps small business small, while big business gets a waiver.  The business currying favor with the government gets to use the government’s monopoly on force against the up-and-coming business, making sure they never make it up.

Warren Buffet will never find his wealth taken away anyway, and whatever he earns in income from a salary or wages is meaningless.  He earns money from investments and capital gains.  The small husband and wife business that does $300,000 and that they file together suddenly becomes the target as “the rich”.  He wants to raise income tax on those people as a means to crush them, and prevent them from getting to where he is.  As the expression goes, he’s pulling the ladder up behind him.

The left loves wealth.  Obama’s rich, Boxer, Feinstein, Edwards, Durbin, Schumer, the Kennedy clan, Kerry, the Clintons, and so on and so forth are all incredibly rich.  Boxer made money on oil which she then pushed to tax, Feinstein made money by steering government contracts to her husband (as well as other investments), John Edwards made his in frivolous lawsuits, Kerry made his by marrying a billionaire, the Kennedys made theirs through bootlegging and influence peddling, the Clintons made theirs through criminal deals and now speaking engagements, and so on and so forth.  They have their money, and they love it.  They’re on top, and now they need to tell you how to live.

It’s also like Al Gore, who has a mansion, jets around the country, is a multi-millionaire set up to profit from a carbon exchange, and yet lives by none of his own rules.  Because, you see, he’s too important.

Socialism is for the people, not the socialist.  Taxes are for the people, not Warren Buffet.

They are the Ruling Class.  You are not.  And they set up institutions to keep things that way.  But they want you to hate the “evil rich” as they hold you down –  pitting you against your fellow Country Class citizens who are improving their own lot in life – and yours.

The greatest threat to the social order of the royalty of Europe were the rise of the burghers and merchants, who weren’t peasants or serfs tied to the land and owned by their lord, nor nobility.

President Barack Obama delivers remarks to small business owners, community lenders and members of Congress in the East Room of the White House in Washington, DC. Secretary of the Treasury Timothy F. Geithner has his back to the camera. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back.  They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own.  You didn’t get there on your own.  I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart.  There are a lot of smart people out there.  It must be because I worked harder than everybody else.  Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. (Emphasis added)

Business Owner: Well what if I didn’t have help, what if I am that smart, what if I do put in a 60 or 70 hour week Mr. President? What if I do have the best product out there? What if people like how I run my business better than the next guy?

If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help.  There was a great teacher somewhere in your life.  Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive.  Somebody invested in roads and bridges.  If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that.  Somebody else made that happen.  The Internet didn’t get invented on its own.  Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet. [Emphasis added]

Business Owner: You know what I might have had a good teacher along the way, but did they actually help me start and run my business, their INFLUENCE may have helped me, but did they actually participate in the blood, sweat and tears that got me to the level of success I have experienced today? How did a road and a bridge help me start a business, sir? People had businesses before interstate highways. I did build my business on my own, I planned it, I executed it, I hired others who wanted to work for me, I constantly made my product better and now its the best out there. How dare you sir, tell me that my business is NOT the RESULT of my OWN HARD WORK!

JBH: Ownership of property is the hallmark of the American way. It has made us what we are today, without it we are no better than the next social democracy out there. For the president to make his comment that business owners did not make their own success is a fallacy in the worst sense. It is an out right lie and should be insulting to every business own out there. You business owners are what make the American economy turn without you there would be no American Dream.

Business Owners please remember the following:

  • YOU are the ENGINE of the economy, not government.
  • YOU are the JOB CREATORS, not government.
  • YOU are the INNOVATORS,not government.
  • YOU are the epitome of the AMERICAN DREAM, not government.
  • DO NOT feel guilt, YOU are VIRTUOUS, not government.

For the record on the internet take a look here. For the record I didn’t see the word government mentioned anywhere.

I’ve wondered what it must be like to be a Pageant Queen. All the glitzy 30 pound dresses, ammonia hair dye, spray-on tans that turn ALL your mucous membranes orange, chemical highs from Aqua Net and eyelash glue…it truly sounds like a dream. Not to mention that part where I’d have to pull an intelligent and well formed answer from my pretty little head that is culturally and socially “conscious” and includes the phrases “world peace”, “global village”, and “starving children in Africa.”

I’m exhausted just thinking about it, and I didn’t even have to do all that in 6 inch platform stripper heels! Personal dreams aside, whether they like or believe it or not, these pageant queens and all their war paint, actually do become role models and symbols. We live in a society that is obsessed with beauty and perfect proportion and those girls represent the utmost in both those categories.

Our eyes are glued to these beautiful, graceful, and seemingly smart and ambitious young ladies. Just for the record, any women entering it as a “scholarship contest” is lying; the money they spend on preparing for the event far outweighs what a decent college would charge for a degree. Speaking of financing the competition, our newest Miss America had an interesting way of raising money for her dresses, swimsuits, full body waxes (she is Lebanese after all), etc…The poor girl had to sell her car, strip for money, and ask for money from a Hezbollah supporting terrorist, Imad Hamad. But, I suppose considering she is a Shia Muslim and has terrorist family members back in Lebanon that shouldn’t surprise us. Given all these dangerous seeming ties, and not to mention she tripped on stage and called birth control a “controlled substance”, why on earth did this girl win?

She’s gorgeous, but she didn’t show very much grace and her answer was neither intelligent nor particularly engaging. One particular woman did all these things, though- the runner-up Miss Oklahoma. She was graceful, and her answer was poignant and reflected enough intelligence to actually form her own thoughts. What was the real difference between these two ladies (besides the fact one is an actual American citizen and the other an immigrant)? One can surmise that the difference is strictly cultural and political. One girl is a picture of WASPy perfection and precisely the sort of person demonized these days in favor of cultural diversity and affirmative action. The other is a trendy and exotic minority that happens to be on the winning end of the ACLU and a popular group to receive pity from the liberal set.

Funny, I was sure this sort of thing was called discrimination, but I’m white, what do I know? I do know that it is come time for society at large, the government, and the media to stop dismissing conservatives as yokels with nothing in their brains except Nazi symbols and confederate flags like the pageant judges dismissed Miss Oklahoma for her Arizona answer. The answers to our problems lie in reason, compromise, and moderation. Reason to solve problems stoically; compromise to consider all valid points of view and the ability to give up a want for a need; moderation to keep the government and those others who wish to control in check.

There need not be spades of emotion involved in governing processes. Men have been telling women this for thousands of years; stop crying and solve the problem! Stop crying long enough to see a clear, logical solution. Miss Oklahoma gave a clear rational answer to a judge who was emotionally involved in question; he couldn’t have rationally judged her answer for a second. More and more, our media and culture is headed that direction. Newspapers and TV programs appeal to our emotions: starving children, elderly without medical insurance, poor immigrants that are treated like dogs in their own countries.

Any group that attempts to provide a clear and stoic answer to these problems is labeled as callous, stupid, or ignorant, and worse, compared to the Communist or Fascist regimes the liberal media and our current government much more closely resemble.

We are not extremists; we are the Miss Oklahomas of the world-men and women who simply and clearly voice our opinions only to be out voiced by a sob story with ominous ties and darker skin. I won’t go so far as to call her a decoy for Islamic extremism, although I personally won’t discount it. She’s a young woman with seemingly loose morals (see: stripping for money; you can google the pictures) who happened to be a convenient spokeswoman for the culturally biased, discriminatory, overly emotional and sensitive culture in which we live.

Long Live Miss Oklahoma.

Folks I came across this little website. It has quotes from various leaders and soldiers of the Liberal Establishment. Below, I am going to post a few of the more important ones to me.

“Warren [will] tell you what his preference is…let the market work…and then just tax the heck out of people at the end and just redistribute it. That way you’re not impending efficiency, and your achieving equity on the back end.”
-Barack Obama
from New York Times Magazine

“To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminist and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night, in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism, and patriarchy. When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpet or set our stereos so loud that the walls began to shake, we were resisting bourgeois societies stifling conventions. We weren’t indifferent or careless or insecure. We were alienated. But this strategy alone couldn’t provide the distance I wanted, from Joyce or my past. After all, there were thousands of so-called campus radicals, most of them white and tenured and happily tolerant. No, it remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.
-Barack Obama

“Who really cares about it being unconstitutional?”

“We need somebody who’s got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what its like to be a teen aged mom, the empathy to understand what its like to be poor or African-American or gay or disabled or old – and that’s the criterion by which I’ll be selecting my judges.”
-Barack Obama
Mark Murray Article from MSNBC

On Iran: “They don’t pose a serious threat to us the way the Soviet Union posed a threat to us.”
-Barack Obama
Speech in Oregon

“Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that’s where its really at.”
-Bill Ayers, Mentor of Barack Obama
Memoir Excerpt

“A system of world order – preferably a system of world government – is mandatory…. The proud nations someday will see the light, and, for the common good and their own survival, yield up their precious sovereignty.”
-Walter Cronkite
A Reporter’s Life

“I hear about Tony Snow [and his colon cancer] and say to myself, well, stand up everyday, lie to the American people at the behest of your dictator-esque boss and, well, how could cancer not grow in you? Work for Fox News, spinning the truth into a billion knots and how can your gut not rot?
-Charles Karel Bouley
ABC Radio talk show host

“Our problem today is too little government.”
- Congressman Barney Frank
The American, Article by Tory Newmyer

I think its safe to say that these are not the type of people our country needs. From these quotes you can tell what types of people these are. They want to destroy the America of our founding fathers. They want to replace the values that have made this country the greatest in the world with an all powerful federal government, that will tell us how to raise our children, raise our taxes, destroy traditional families, practice reverse discrimination, tell us what jobs we will work, what schools we will attend.

Independence Day is coming, when we declared tyranny from the abuses of a despot. Now Liberals [progressives] wearing the clothing of both republicans and democrats are trying to bring back the tyranny because they do not believe in the dream that our founding fathers have passed on to us. They want to take care of us so we don’t have anything to worry over. They promise us a good living wage, good government sponsored health care, retirement through social security. None of these things are working. Let a man’s wage be determined by the market. Let that wage be invested properly in private health care and a private retirement plan. Do you want a government official telling you that you aren’t worth the risk to have that tumor removed? Do you want the government to come back in 30 years when your approaching retirement to tell you that social security is bankrupt?

Think about these things on Saturday while your enjoying the time with your family. I wish everyone a happy 4th. Take care and God bless.
