Watch List = No Gun Rights… Again!

It is amazing to me how bad ideas in Washington never seem to die. They are like vampires, that instead of blood want to suck liberties and freedom away instead. They just keep coming back over and over again. You think you put a stake through the heart of one of these freedom robbing ideas, but nope, here it comes again! Here we are after another horrific terrorist act performed by Radical Islamic Jihadist and again the talk moves to gun control. I have of course written about this before.

However this time I wish to report that someone in the Huffington Post of all places actually has some semblance of the problem and what the NRA is against. Let’s see if the dimwits in the Democrat Party can understand THIS time around. I doubt it, but like a hopeful parent I keep hoping the morons will catch on, but they never do.

As pointed out in this Huffington Post article, it explains the issue with the NRA and these ever expanding black lists from government is the absolute lack of due process involved in getting on a list, finding out you are on it, and getting yourself off it if you are innocent.

It seems the government REALLY hates this whole 5th Amendment thing. It is just too hard for them to go out and present real evidence and hold a trial and all that other “hard stuff”. It is so much easier to just pass a law that says we can strip rights, property, freedom and liberty away with no trial because some government thug somewhere thinks it is a good idea to put you on some type of secret list.

Any Libertarian worth his or her salt hates these watch lists for multiple reasons, but as the article above states the NRA is correct on this issue. Lack of due process is completely unacceptable and it holds true in this case as well. You can’t start having secret government lists that strip people of rights!

Now having said that I wouldn’t start cheering these stupid lists even if due process was used. Why? Because ultimately it involves putting someone on a list that strips liberties away for something that someone MIGHT do down the road, but we aren’t really sure.

If someone has ALREADY broken laws and is ALREADY a terrorist who has ALREADY done acts of murder or terror then LOCK THEM UP! Don’t put them on some list! But wait, what about terrorists that are running around overseas right now. Unless they are American citizens they don’t get rights under our Constitution. If they are Americans AND terrorists then catch them like you would any criminal and prosecute them!

The whole concept of taking people’s freedom’s away because of things they haven’t but might do someday is a very dangerous precedent to start. Plus who gets to decide these definitions? What constitutes an actual terrorist? I know everyone has their vision of what a terrorist is, but I guarantee that government will have a different definition if you allow this and it will be one you won’t like or worse the definition will start getting bigger and bigger to include more people.

It is no accident that members of the NRA and gun rights enthusiasts get called “terrorist” every time they stand up to Congress when the scum bags are trying to infringe on our liberties again. These un-American ass hats know damn good and well that a whole lot of freedom and liberties are suddenly granted to the police, courts and government and taken away from private citizens if you can brand some person or group as a “terrorist”. That is like a government magic word for immediately suspending constitutional rights from a group of people.

So, if we let this go through even with “due process” in place what happens when the media and liberals everywhere are successful in branding NRA members as terrorist? Poof! There goes our rights and we help sell the bill that will allow it to happen.

You see as dangerous as it is to strip people’s rights and liberties away for things they might do someday it is even more dangerous when the government has amorphous ever changing definitions of what or who a “terrorist” is and what constitutes “acts of terror” that will justify this loss of liberty. You just have to know that whatever party is in control of the levers of power will try and brand their POLITICAL enemies as “terrorists” so they can immediately throw them on some list and strip away a ton of Constitutional liberties.

This whole “war on terror” and who is an actual terrorist is just giving people that don’t deserve our trust (government) way too much power and discretion with our liberties.

Therefore, I stand where I did before. NOT ONE MORE INCH when it comes to gun rights or for that matter giving the thugs more power under the guise of “keeping us safe” and the “war on terror”.

I will keep myself safe. I don’t need the government to do it for me. First, they suck at it. Second, I prefer to do these things myself so I know what I am getting. All I need from government is to stay away from anymore of my liberties. Just back off and leave me alone. There are millions of other Americans that think the same thing.

Molon Labe!

 

No Fly List Equals No 2nd Amendment

In his most recent tirade, Chairman Obama of the not so free United States called for… wait for it… more gun control in the wake of San Bernardino shootings. Yes, this guy just keeps getting more creative, innovative, predictable by the day!

His most current idea is anyone that is on the “no fly list” should be stripped of their 2nd Amendment rights. The LA Times editorial board even thought this idea was terrible. Not exactly known for the libertarian centered views even these guys can spot a terrible idea when they see it.

However this is just the latest terrible idea relating to the never ending always expanding “war on terror”. Every time some lunatic anywhere in the world does a horrible act of terror politicians in America start talking about another Constitutional right that needs to be removed or watered down to “keep us safe”.

The (un)Patriot Act has almost completely gutted the 4th Amendment with secret courts that rubber stamp broad and sweeping open warrants that essentially allow the government to go on a fishing expedition whenever they want. This of course is secret from the person being investigated and has strict gag orders in place anywhere it is used, i.e. your bank, library, or anywhere else they wish to look.

The wonderful tool of Civil Asset Forfeiture allows the Federalies to swoop in and steal your property without ANY criminal conviction. The IRS can steal money from your home, business, bank accounts, etc. simply for suspecting you of a crime under this wonderful government boondoggle. Their favorite recent toy in the box is something called “structuring” where they say ANY series of deposits NOT $10,000 or above is an attempt by you to avoid reporting laws and hence you are doing something illegal.

Police can pull you over, search your vehicle and help themselves to your cash, jewelry and other valuables under the rule “it might have been used in a criminal endeavor” theory of law. Again, no criminal conviction or even charges required. In cases of Civil Asset Forfeiture you will almost never be charged with a crime and must hire expensive attorneys to get your property back. So even if you end up “winning” by getting your own property returned by the time you pay attorney and court fees you still lost.

Americans decided to fight back against some of this abuse and many people use strong data encryption for their phones, email to keep government snoops out of their business. Then along comes the FBI saying, wait for it… we need back doors in this software for, yes, you guessed it the never ending “war on terror”

The sad thing all of these have in common is an attempt to subvert your Constitutional rights at every turn. Once your Constitutional rights are gone don’t expect the government to just give them back. People need to be aware you are getting a bad deal if you think they will make you “safer” in exchange for just one more infringement.

Obama’s recent one on 2nd Amendment rights is just the latest and certainly not the last “discussions” we will have about this or that liberty all in the name of giving law enforcement the “tools” they need to protect us.

In case you haven’t noticed all the words and phrases they use in describing these infringements are poll tested, spin tested words to mislead you. Hopefully people are smarter than that, but given the amount of infringements to date and the never ending stream of new ideas for more I am not hopeful.

Wake up people, the hour grows very late for you to stop this abuse by government.

The King is Above the Law… Again

Well, here is another story of how the DOJ has ruled it is almost unacceptable for local police to NOT have body cameras now, but they [Federal Police Forces] will NOT use them OR work with any local agency that does wear them! So again, another situation of where the rules for the Federalies is different than the rest of us. Of course they have all kinds of professional sounding excuses for why this shouldn’t apply to them.

Of course nobody at the Federal level ever makes a mistake that should be caught on camera. Nobody at the Federal level could have any racist tendencies, which is why supposedly the local police need to use them. Nobody at the Federal level will ever use excessive force that should be caught on camera. Nobody at the Federal level will ever kick down the door of the wrong house in the middle of the night and kill the wrong person. No, that has never happened. Nobody at the Federal level should ever be held accountable for their actions, but the local police definitely should.

I don’t know about you, but I am getting really sick and tired of this two tiered system in the country of the Federal ruling class constantly exempting themselves from the rules and laws they inflict on the rest of us. As if they are untouchable.

I don’t trust the Federal thugs on ANYTHING and I want them on camera 24/7 raw and unedited so that we can see behind all of their closed doors and secret meetings. It is about time they get some sunlight shined up their asses so the rest of us can truly see what jack booted thugs they really are and quit doing stuff that offers up taxes and support for them to grow larger and more oppressive by the day.

All you people out there that constantly vote for candidates that support bigger and bigger government take note here. The bigger they get the less accountable they become as we can see here. If we truly had a Constitutional Republic and a SMALL Federal government bound by a Constitution this would not be happening, but too many people continually see government, mainly the Federal government as the cure for everything.

I trust my local police far more than I trust those thugs. I want them to have cameras period. We need to apply political force to hold ALL levels of government accountable, not just the local government and police. Enough of this it is good enough for you, but not us crap!

Wesley Clark Calls for Internment Camps for “Radical” Americans

In the below video former General Wesley Clark calls for the creation of internment camps to segregate “radicalized” Americans from the rest of the population as we did in World War 2 with Japanese Americans. This is an interesting position from a man who had no shortage of criticisms for George W. Bush’s violations of civil liberties. Apparently protecting civil liberties is not really the mission here. Violating civil liberties is fine so long as it is your team doing the violating. Watch the video for yourself…

There are a few issues with his “ideas” of how to protect Americans. First, exactly who gets to decide who is “radical?” Today we might say it is radical Islamic terrorists, but as we have seen before people that believe in strong 2nd Amendment rights have been labeled “terrorists” on more than one occasion. Does that group get put into one of these camps? How about people that believe in any of the other Bill of Rights and is willing to fight for them. Are those individuals now “radicalized” and need to be put into a camp?

We actually have people out there that instead of having freedom of speech guaranteed by the 1st Amendment that we should create categories of “hate” speech that is illegal and should be a crime. Wow. Who gets to decide what “hate” speech is? Is that just speech you disagree with?

So if someone says they don’t believe in LGBT lifestyle is that now hate speech and said person needs to be put into a camp for being “radicalized”. When we start deciding what speech is protected and what isn’t and are constantly pointing fingers at each other and saying this person or what they said is offending me and they are a “hate” speech person or “radical” for their idea we are in VERY dangerous waters. Add to that the idea that we should start shoving these people into camps and you have the all the makings of another holocaust.

Maybe those people that believe in a strong 4th Amendment and believe that having a warrant before being able to indiscriminately search someone’s house, computer, library records, phone, business records, car is a good idea. Are those people now “wrong thinking” people that are “radicalized?” Maybe they are hiding something, if they didn’t have something to hide they would just agree to the search, right? They must be a radical, maybe we should lock them up in a camp?

The issue is who gets to decide who is radicalized and a threat and needs to go into one of these camps? What is the process for deciding they have to go? Is it just their position on an issue? Will they have to show they are a danger to society? If so, how exactly does this new Minority Report commission convict someone of a crime they haven’t actually done yet, but may in the future?

If we decide to start shoving people into these camps do they have a trial? appeals? Is there a sentencing system or are they simply put in there until they are no longer “radicalized?” Who gets to decide when that has been achieved? What happens to them in this camp? Do they get re-educated or tortured until they have seen the light? What happens to their property they owned before they got shoved in this camp, doe we just divvy it up among the “non-radicalized” people living outside these camps?

See you start getting a lot of sticky questions when you decide it is a good idea to start labeling various people you disagree with as “radicalized” and “terrorist” and decide to start stripping them of civil liberties and locking them up for crimes they *might* do someday, but haven’t done today and quite frankly may never do.

Depending on exactly what “radicalized” group we are discussing here doing a crime isn’t what is happening so much as standing up for freedom. If their only crime is being “radicalized” according to some person’s definition of the word is then some star chamber of people somewhere get to determine that and shove them in a camp until this group starts thinking the right way? Wow. Just Wow, what else can you say about something like this.

The really scary thing is this clown is actually brought on to discuss this on news shows as it should actually be considered a real policy idea. This maniac should not be given a platform anywhere where his ideas are actually elevated to the level of serious discussion.

In addition, this moron was and may be again a presidential candidate. Finally, at one time he was actually a general in the military, you know, one of only two groups, police being the other one, that should have all the guns according to liberals. Now that should scare every single person.

Martin O’Malley Calls for New “Assault” Weapon Ban…Again

In the spirit of never letting a crisis go to waste Martin O’Malley is the latest flat earth gun control supporter calling for another “assault” weapon ban…again. How does that saying go it is like deja vu all over again. Apparently this clown doesn’t even read his own adoring paper the New York Times, which also admitted that the “assault” weapon ban enacted from 1994 to 2004 didn’t make any difference. Why? Because the vast amount of thugs killing people do NOT use modern sporting rifles, which 2nd Amendment hating, flat earth supporters, like O’Malley call “assault” weapons. The term is a completely and carefully poll tested word used by freedom hating POS like O’Malley to remove rights from us.

It is interesting that he is using the latest crisis in South Carolina to call for this ban. First, the shooting itself was NOT done with a modern sporting rifle. Not that this should make a difference, but it does show how these freedom hating thugs call for any and all types of gun control every time an event like this occurs. Second, the issue in South Carolina was more about mental illness than guns. If we fix the mental illness issue in this country people like this guy in South Carolina should be able to get the treatment he obviously needs.

2nd Amendment hating, anti freedom and anti civil liberties people like O’Malley will never understand the real issue and quite frankly don’t want to. They are more interested in striping freedom from private citizens than actually solving problems, which is what the entire gun control industry is based on.

The formula is always the same. First, wait for “crisis” that involves a gun. Second, don’t wait for the facts and start dancing in the blood of the victims and calling for “common sense” gun laws. Next, try and find a way to work in the words “assault” weapon into every news report the group does on national media, even if the perp uses a knife it becomes a conversation about “assault” weapons. Pull out a long wish list of gun ban laws that are always ready to go in their desk drawer and propose it as THE solution to THIS problem even though they are always the same tired ideas which have been pitched for years. Lastly when you don’t gain traction, blame it your lack of progress on the powerful “gun lobby” and NRA. Rinse and repeat.

In the case of O’Malley work a little fund raising in the issue as well. No point in not squeezing your supporters for a few bucks for your personal coffers at the same time. These guys will never understand we have 20,000 gun laws on the books right now. We don’t need any more “common sense” solutions, which only make it harder for private, law abiding, citizens to exercise their rights and won’t even slow a criminal down. But again, it isn’t about real solutions. It is about control.

The real solution to this latest shooting is two fold. First, fix the mental health system in this country. Of course that is hard and expensive and time consuming so it is easier to just call for some more “common sense”, but useless gun control law and call it a day. Second, eliminate the criminal protection zones like this church was. Gun free zones don’t work and never have. A thug bent on murder isn’t going to change his plans because you put your stupid little no guns sign up. It isn’t like garlic to a vampire, it doesn’t repel criminals. If you really want to stop mass shootings stop creating victim zones where law abiding citizens can’t carry and protect themselves and become prey for thugs like this guy. If anyone in that room besides the killer had a firearm they may have ended this before it became a mass shooting, but hey, let’s just propose another “common sense” gun control law because they always work; full sarcasm intended.

The bottom line is I don’t care how many politicians use the word “common sense” and talk about how this never happens in more enlightened countries like Australia. As a 2nd Amendment supporter I am not giving up one more right for a useless law that won’t solve a damn thing. Not one more inch.

Pending Obamacare Legal Decision Summed Up

The Supreme Court is ready to rule on the question of subsidies for Obamacare anytime this month. Chances are they have already voted on it and the decision is being written up as I write this and will be announced soon.

This will go one of two ways, kind of like a simple decision tree. Either in an effort to again re-write what the law actually says one or more of the Justices will “find” something in there that justifies it and rule in favor of Obama and the subsidies, thus protecting Obamacare yet again from complete destruction, which is where it should have went years ago. Personally, this is what I believe will happen. I don’t trust that traitor John Roberts to rule on what the law actually says. He will go through legal gymnastics as he did the first time and rule in favor of Obama.

However in the very small chance that I am wrong and the Justices rule against Obama the subsidies will be found illegal and the law will quickly begin to cave in, which brings an interesting problem to bear. The Republicans want changes to the law. Obama doesn’t want anything changed. He [Obama] will dig in and throw a temper tantrum and vow to veto any changes to his precious socialized healthcare program.

The Republicans will be able to pass a reform bill, but Obama will refuse to sign it. The only bill he will sign will be one that makes the subsidies legal without any other changes whatsoever. Meanwhile in approximately 37 states the cost of health insurance will streak into the stratosphere for many people that are receiving subsidies. The policies will become completely unaffordable and they will lose them and possibly be fined for not having insurance they simply cannot afford. These people will begin screaming for blood.

Meanwhile the spineless Republicans will become terrified that the Mongol hordes screaming for their government gravy in the form of subsidies are calling for their heads. They will buckle under the pressure as they always do and give Obama exactly what he wants to pacify both Obama and the Mongol hordes.

Amazingly the same thing happened 2,000 years ago in Rome when the barbarians showed up at the gates of Rome and sacked the city. Only this time the barbarians are already in the city gates and the only thing that will pacify them is for the spineless Republicans to throw more government gravy pacify and shut them up for now, but they will be back. They always come back and they want more and more.

This will not stop until we have another party willing to make the tough decisions (Libertarians) or the system collapses as it is doing right now in Greece. Isn’t it amazing how history just keeps repeating itself over and over again and politicians are dumb enough to believe it will somehow come out differently THIS time.

Obama Snubbing France after Terror Attack

Here is an interesting opinion piece about the recent snubbing Obama gave to France after their recent terror attacks. The piece does a good job at outlining the reasons for this. Basically, Obama is more interested in looting hardworking Americans of their earnings in an effort to make the world “equal”. So in the name of equality he continues to ignore serious terrorist threats. Nice. The piece goes on to point out that is has been Obama’s mission since the beginning.

Unfortunately what Obama doesn’t understand is that you can’t have equal outcomes until you have equal inputs. In other words it is a fact of life that some people work harder, longer and are simply more talented than others. Those people will generally put more into life to get more out. Those that don’t will often be on the bottom and stay there. Idiots like Obama want to somehow punish those individuals that work harder and make everyone and everything equal so that regardless of what you put in or are capable of putting in you get the same out as the next guy who didn’t do this. In short, socialism.

Using terms like “JV Team” when describing terrorist is designed to put out the message that these guys aren’t a serious threat so we can go back to his favorite topics of looting, spreading the wealth, socialism and robbing the “rich” to give to the poor. The only thing is the terrorist don’t seem to care what Obama is interested in talking about or doing. They are still plotting and planning and will keep attempting to carry out attacks against the west.

No doubt as in France these attacks will mostly likely be these lone wolf types we have been seeing pop up and will happen both overseas and sadly on American shores, eventually. This makes it even more important that Americans continue to protect their 2nd Amendment rights. Your ability to protect yourself may eventually be all that stands between these terrorist psychopaths and your own life or your family’s life. We certainly can’t count on Obama to take the threats seriously.

And this folks is what happens when you elect a JV guy to be President because of all the free stuff he promises to steal from the “rich” to give to you.

ISIS is the latest PR stunt for the “War on Terror”

Does anyone remember that nasty horrible terrorist group, Al Qaeda? Sure, some people have a foggy recollection of that group, but most are sure it died when Navy SEALS put some much needed lead into Osama Bin Laden. Unfortunately that left the Neocons and big government guys trying to peddle their “security for freedom” wares again with a problem. If people truly perceive that terrorism is shrinking in the world they won’t have the stomach to go back into Iraq or swallow another “anti-terror” legislation pill.

We already have given up so much freedom that we will never see again. We live in a surveillance state where the government watches everything we do all in the name of “protecting” us from those bad terrorists. What these peddlers of anti-freedom needed was a new sexy sounding threat to scare the American people back into Iraq and willingly accepting even more freedom robbing legislation. Enter ISIS. Doesn’t the name just sound ominous? This is just what the spin doctors ordered. They sound really bad and with every news agency in the country pushing stories out daily and the Internet exploding with stories of them beheading Christians and journalists and others they have created the new “bad guys” ta da!

As Ron Paul states in this article the Neocons are screaming for blood again, the Fed is salivating at the prospect of being able to turn the printing presses back on to full speed to fund another war against another horrible sounding, but this time faceless, terrorist organization. No doubt some additional freedom robbing legislation is sitting in a drawer somewhere in D.C. ready to pull out at just the right time to shove it down our throats again when the right news story breaks.

If Americans buy this again, they are truly fools. This is nothing but another PR campaign to sell us another “solution” in search of a problem for a country we should have never been in, will never bring peace to, and will ultimately be back under another new dictator again very soon. I am not convinced people in the Middle East actually want peace or can live together in peace. However even if I am wrong, the bottom line is, it is their problem and they need to figure it out. We can’t force a solution on them. Nor should we try.

We also can’t be jumping at our shadow every time a new and improved terrorist group is peddled to us by the freedom hating war mongers in Congress. Enough is a enough. Stop believing what these people keep trying to sell. Think for yourself and take your own security into your own hands. Stop thinking these idiots are going to sell you a solution that will work. It won’t. If you truly want personal protection you need to make it for yourself.

Own a gun
Learn how to use it
Get some training
Be aware of your surroundings
Set up your house with some common sense security measures
Have some supplies stored up
Build a family response plan to an emergency
Know your neighbors and community

In other words be THE solution; don’t allow someone else to be your security blanket. What they offer will only give you a false sense of security while quietly erasing more of our precious freedom and wasting more money chasing shadows. I don’t depend on anyone else for my personal security and you shouldn’t either. Step up and do it yourself and put a stop to the “terror is everywhere” hustlers in Congress.

Simply Disobey the State – Civil Disobedience

There is an interesting article today on Lew Rockwell about Anarcho Calisthenics. The premise of the article is rather than hold an outright revolution, which usually results in a worse regime than the one that was removed coming to power, instead simply stop following the dictates of the state. He further goes on to say these don’t have to be big acts of defiance, they could be small ones, but exercised by thousands or even millions will reek havoc on state machinery.

Here in the U.S. we have a fine tradition of simply disobeying the state when they have crossed the line. From the Revolutionary War to Henry David Thoreau to modern times we have been a defiant people. It is happening right now in Connecticut with the latest unconstitutional anti gun laws by potentially thousands of people. You see the dirty secret is we the people outnumber the politicians and their thugs by considerable numbers, but people forget that. They need you to just go along and follow their laws for the power to exist.

The reality is despite the number of police, prisons, and laws that exist they simply don’t have enough of them to force every citizen to comply with every law, every minute, of every day. Instead if you don’t voluntarily do it they simply can’t stop everyone. Yes, they can stop some and they do. Unfortunately for those they do stop they usually try and destroy them completely so as to set an example for the rest of the defiant people, but in the end they will still not be able to do that to everyone.

In Connecticut right now the politicians are besides themselves over this latest gun law. They fully expected everyone to simply fall into line and march over the cliff like good little lemmings when this law was passed. It simply never occurred to them that a huge majority of people would simply hold up their collective middle fingers and ignore the laws. These people called their bluff.

Now there are thousands of people who are felons according to the law. Some of them will get caught and the state will crush them with a zeal unlike we have seen before. They will do this for two reasons, one out of sheer anger that so many others have defied them and hopefully to set an example and bring the rest of the herd back into compliance with the state.

This will not work. The harder the state tries to crush them the more evasive and careful people will be to not get caught. Some still will and that is the nature of any war, there are always casualties. The truth is nobody wants to be that casualty, but some will be. However all will live under tyranny or some will fight and some will lose, but in the end the state and their tyranny loving politicians are the real losers. Here is a quote from the Hartford Courant that proves the point…

“I honestly thought from my own standpoint that the vast majority would register,” said Sen. Tony Guglielmo, R-Stafford, the ranking GOP senator on the legislature’s public safety committee. “If you pass laws that people have no respect for and they don’t follow them, then you have a real problem.”

This guy simply doesn’t know what to do now that so many people have simply withdrawn their consent to be tyrannized by an out of control state. However this is not enough. People need to be defiant on a range of things every single day across the entire nation.

Here are some things to consider before embarking on this…

  • Make sure you are willing to “do the time” for whatever rule you are breaking if you are that person who is caught and made an example of. In other words are you William Wallace?

  • Don’t wave flags, banners, or god forbid place your civil disobedience on social media for the world to see. Don’t be stupid. If you tell the state you have withdrawn your consent you will be visited by door kicking thugs in the middle of the night.

  • Be quiet, smart, and careful. Think Walter White from Breaking Bad. He hid in plain sight and didn’t let the world know what he was doing.

  • Don’t post things on social media or tell the world you disagree with the state, at least, not loudly. Such people end up becoming part of a small group of people to “watch” by the state. Rather think needle in the haystack.

  • Make it as hard as possible for the state to see you as anything other than another compliant little lemming co towing to their infinite power, but in reality you are not anything of the sort.

Understand, I am not suggesting you go out and start a career of crime here, although in reality most people commit an average of 3 felonies everyday right now and don’t know it.

I am suggesting you simply withdraw your consent to allow yourself to be placed under the tyranny of the state for every little stupid regulation and law they can dream up, but in the end don’t actually have the power to enforce against everyone. Exercise this freedom regularly. It actually feels good.

Politics of Hobby Lobby Supreme Court Ruling

So the SCOTUS yesterday came out on another famous 5/4 decision to back Hobby Lobby’s case against Obamacare. In short the ruling exempts closely held corporations from having to provide contraception in their health plans as mandated by Obamacare on religious grounds. It is fascinating to see all the groups rushing out in front of cameras today to try and cash in on this one way or the other.

The reality is this is such a narrow ruling that it has almost no effect on the stinking, freedom robbing mess that is Obamacare. However I find it interesting when that traitor John Roberts essentially re-wrote the law and then ruled it Constitutional every statis out there howled from the heavens that it was “settled law” and the courts have spoken. Leave it alone. It was done. etc. etc., but this time they don’t like the ruling so they are asking Congress to “fix” it, which of course will not happen.

It is also interesting how the Democrats are practically killing themselves to get in front a camera and pull out the so called “war on women” playbook again. Really. First of all, it isn’t the Republicans that did this. It was people with religious objections that were being forced to violate their religious beliefs at the point of a gun by Obama. While it can be argued that Republicans were not sorry to see this happen, let’s be clear, it was nothing that the Republican led House did legislatively. To blame them for this is nothing more than crass politics.

Last point, the issue of force. Statis are out there today talking about how the employees of Hobby Lobby and any other closely held corporation that exercises this right are somehow robbing their employees. First off, this medication we are talking about is dirt cheap, $9 per month. So give up one of your latte and buy your medication and shut up. Second, nobody is forcing you to work for this company. If you hate what they are doing by all means find a different job.

If a Libertarian and *some* conservatives don’t like something they simply leave, find another job, change the channel, etc. If they don’t like the gun laws in a certain state, they leave. If they don’t like the garbage MSNBC calls “news” they simply change the channel. Statis can’t do that. If they don’t like what an employer is doing they want the heavy hand of government to force them to change. If they don’t like Fox News they want government to regulate them away. If they don’t like talk radio they want government to ban them. If they don’t like guns instead of moving to a state like New Jersey, New York, Connecticut or California which are all practically gun free states and enjoy their little utopia they go to the Federal government and ask them to ban guns nationally. In other words they are not happy unless they can use the brutal power of government and the government guns to force their world views on EVERYONE. It is sickening.

Many Libertarians who believe in gun rights and freedom have started taking the tact of not one more inch. No, we are not going to allow you to oppress us with your world views. We will at a certain point choose to fight back. We don’t want to do this, but if you keep taking our freedoms and liberties at a certain point this option becomes inevitable. Just look at history and you will see case after case where this was true. So stop already.
