Keep the Crazy Away from Sharp Objects & Sharp Comments

Turning in gunsI’m strongly in favor of keeping the mentally ill away from firearms and I’m coming around to approving any policy that keeps crazy ‘journalists’ away from a keyboard, too. Case in point is Salon.com writer Arthur Chu. His rant titled “It’s not about mental illness: The big lie that always follows mass shootings by white males” makes Alex Jones sound like Dr. Phil.

Chu and Solon appear to be angry because most of America has a handy rule of thumb for predicting mental illness: Any white loser that goes into a prayer meeting at a black church and indiscriminately shoots nine people in the belief the killings will spark a race war — is nuts.

Besides, everyone knows if you want to create widespread civil unrest it requires a white cop to shoot a black suspect in self–defense while the suspect resists arrest.

Chu begins, “I get really really tired of hearing the phrase “mental illness” thrown around as a way to avoid saying other terms like “toxic masculinity,” “white supremacy,” “misogyny” or “racism.”

He’s more concerned with how the insanity manifests itself than the underlying mental illness. This is like criticizing coverage of Jack–the–Ripper for not pointing out his poor surgical technique.

The Charleston shooter was manifestly a crazy racist. The description has the advantage of being accurate without making the rest of white America, and gun owners in particular, responsible for the deaths.

Chu does have the distinction of being the first soft–on–sanity leftist I’ve encountered. He complains about the lack of “serious policy proposals for how to improve our treatment of the mentally ill in this country,” but he wants to exploit the mentally ill to remove guns from the law–abiding sane.

He contends that pointing out the crazy component of white mass shooters is only an excuse to begin a reign of terror among the mentally ill by requiring them to undergo treatment and possibly recover. “Elliot Rodger’s (Isla Vista) parents should’ve been able to force risperidone down his throat. Seung-Hui Cho (Virginia Tech) should’ve been forcibly institutionalized. Anyone with a mental illness diagnosis should surrender all of their constitutional rights, right now, rather than at all compromise the right to bear arms of self-declared sane people.”

Since Rodger’s score was three killed with knives and three killed with guns, confiscating my guns wouldn’t have prevented his spree. And Cho was so nutty a professor wanted him banned from her classes before he started shooting.

The mental health component of preventing gun violence is to bar gun ownership to anyone who’s been involuntarily committed to a psychiatric institution. Second Amendment rights can reinstate after five years and a doctor’s clearance.

But logical consistency doesn’t matter when the end goal of the left is to control guns by confiscating guns.

To Chu calling someone mentally ill is like pulling a gun on them, so to speak. “When you call someone “mentally ill” in this culture it’s a way to admonish people not to listen to them, to ignore anything they say about their own actions and motivations…”

Sure, just ask Kathleen Willey how that works.

But why any sane person would want to listen to Seung–Hui Cho’s ranting is a mystery to me and that goes for all the rest of the mass shooters and their manifestos.

The entire piece is so full of straw men that the column constitutes a fire hazard, but I think his solution to the problem is getting rid of white men and privately owned guns.

Chu appears to believe that the white, oppressive culture that is America today — President Obama, call your office — broadcasts subliminal messages picked up by the most vulnerable among us, who aren’t crazy, just indoctrinated.

No credit is ever granted to white America. “And hundreds of years of history in which an entire country’s economy was set up around chaining up millions of black people, forcing them to work and shooting them if they get out of line? That’s just history.” The only problem with that is slavery in the US lasted less than 100 years and 400,000 Union troops died to remove that stain from our nation’s honor.

Finally, in full frothing–at–the–mouth mode, he concludes, “We love to talk about individuals’ mental illness so we can avoid talking about the biggest, scariest problem of all–societal illness.”

The entire piece reads enough like a manifesto to make me hope Chu isn’t a gun owner himself. The rational among us can be thankful that outside the fever swamp of Salon this screed will have little influence and we can mark Chu as a Bernie Sanders voter who thought the finest moment in recent history was the Occupy movement.

New Era Companies Increasingly Rejecting Gun Rights

Whether its because they’re based in a liberal bastion or bending to political pressure, next gen companies are increasingly adopting gun-unfriendly policies.

A few years ago, GE (GE Capitol) stopped providing 90-day same as cash financing for firearms sales. Marisa at RAM Arms in Durham said that the change forced them to choose between loan shark-like credit companies and offering layaway only. RAM Arms chose layaway.

Most credit card companies won’t underwrite a firearms business. Gun stores, gun ranges and firearms instructors are considered high-risk.

Physical_Bitcoin_by_Mike_Cauldwell_(Casascius)Some gun stores and manufacturers have turned to next-generation funding sources like Coinbase, a bitcoin processor, to help run their businesses. Now, Coinbase has authored a policy that prevents them from dealing with firearms companies. Their excuse? The regulatory environment… seriously? Is bitcoin regulated … at all?

Uber drivers aren't likedPayment isn’t the only way next-gen businesses are attacking gun rights. Even after a gun-carrying Uber driver saved the lives of several people, Uber has decided to initiate a policy preventing drivers or passengers from carrying firearms. If you carry, take a cab because competing ride service Lyft has had a similar policy in place for some time..

None of the changes make sense. They aren’t driven by changes in federal law or regulation. They aren’t centered in logic. More-than-likely, these actions are the result of pressure from Bloomberg’s “Moms against everything” groups and inaccurate reporting in the mainstream media.

Democrats Push for Nationwide Handgun Purchase Permits

Ban GunsU.S. Representatives Elizabeth Esty, Chris Van Hollen, Senators Chris Murphy  and Richard Blumenthal (all D-CT) have introduced proposed legislation that would encourage states to adopt policies to require a special, renewable permit for all revolver or pistol purchases.

The proposed bill, titled the Handgun Purchaser Licensing Act of 2015 would authorize the Department of Justice to issue grants to states to help them put purchase permit policies in place.

“All states require licenses to drive a car or hunt or fish – so why not handguns, which can kill?” said Blumenthal in a statement.

 

To answer the esteemed senator’s question: driving a car and the taking of fish are a privilege and as such are revocable at the discretion of the issuing authority. The ownership and bearing of firearms is an inalienable right protected by the Constitution.

A study by Johns Hopkins is being used to justify the new legislation. The study shows that firearm-related homicides dropped by 40% thanks to Connecticut’s implementation of a handgun permit policy.

The study is being hotly contested.

Dr. John Lott of the Crime Prevention Research Center said that “In three of the four years immediately after the law was passed in 1995, Connecticut’s firearm homicide rate rose relative to the firearm homicides in Northeastern States.”

Critics of the study show that the permit policy actually slowed the already declining rate of gun-related murders.

 

Bystander Nation

Savvas & Amy Savopoulos: RIP

Savvas & Amy Savopoulos: RIP

For all intents and purposes the Savopoulos family were good, civic–minded residents of Washington, DC.

Savvas, and his wife Amy, were active in charitable causes and contributed $51,800 to both Republican and Democrat candidates since 2006. The Daily Mail reports that even though Savopoulos was very wealthy he didn’t surround himself with bodyguards or other security and the family didn’t hesitate to open the door when someone knocked.

When you live near Vice President Joe “Shotgun” Biden in a well–patrolled neighborhood, what could possibly go wrong?

In this instance, everything.

Today Savopoulos, Amy, 10–year–old Phillip and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa are all dead after someone opened the door to their murderer, ex–con Daron Wint. Over an 18–hour period Wint took the family hostage before torturing, stabbing to death and then setting their bodies on fire.

What’s most striking about this is the sheer number of people who went to the Savopoulos’ home while they were hostages or had unusual telephone contact with the family during and then did absolutely nothing.

The timeline shows there were many opportunities for someone to call the police, yet no one did.

The pizza guy is off the hook. He delivers two pizzas about 9PM Wednesday. He rings the bell and leaves the boxes on the porch. The money was waiting for him and no doubt rich people had asked for stranger things, so he leaves without incident.

Next Savopoulos calls the other housekeeper, Nelitza Gutierrez and leaves a strange, contradictory message, which is understandable when your family is held hostage. He tells Gutierrez his wife is going out, but then says she’s sick and Figueroa is staying overnight, so don’t come tomorrow. He concludes by saying Figueroa’s cellphone is dead and they don’t have a charger for it.

Gutierrez thinks that’s strange, but she doesn’t call Figueroa’s husband. Instead she lets the matter drop.

Early the Thursday morning Savopoulos makes a “flurry” of calls to his banker, accountant and personal assistant wanting immediate access to $40,000 cash. This should have set off alarm bells, particularly since Savopoulos wants his assistant to deliver the 40K to his home and leave it in the garage next to the recycling.

Even Joe Biden could tell this is suspicious and out of character, but again no one calls the police or even insists that Savopoulos meet them to take the money.

Forty thousand dollars is dropped off at the Savopoulos home like it’s another Domino’s pizza.

Later that morning Figueroa goes to the house to find his wife. Although he feels someone is inside, there is no answer when he rings the bell. Still curious, he starts peering into windows. And wouldn’t you know it, his cell rings and it’s Savopoulos saying Amy has gone to the hospital and Veralicia is with her.

The house feels wrong, the timing of the call is wrong and no word from his wife is wrong, but there is no indication Figueroa tried to call Gutierrez to see what’s up.

The last contact with anyone outside the home is a text at 9:30 to Gutierrez that reads: “I am making sure you do not come today.” This is her second bite at the apple. Gutierrez tries to call back and sends a reply but again no answer.

None of these individuals had the entire picture, but each of them had enough pieces for concern. They saw something, but failed to say anything.

But that’s the way society functions in the left’s Bystander Nation. Let the authorities and experts handle it, while you mind your own business. Individual responsibility is something for cowboys from Oklahoma.

If employees in the Bethesda, MD Apple store overhear a woman begging for her life in the adjacent Lululemon store and do nothing as she’s stabbed 330 times, how can we expect DC residents to call 9–1–1 before ransom money is dropped off?

In the left’s social paradise it takes a village to raise a child, but it requires only a handful to let a family die.

Even if Savopoulos had been concerned about family safety and applied for a permit to carry a gun, chances are he’d have been denied. Police Chief Cathy Lanier requires a “good reason” before she’ll issue and concern doesn’t qualify.

The good news is if the two surviving daughters want to apply on their 21st birthday, chances are good Lanier will relent.

Seen it All Now: Michael Moore Supports the Second Amendment .. or something

Has the rabid progressive Michael Moore hit his head? Is he suddenly understanding the true purpose of the second amendment? Not likely, but still fun to watch!

Now Michael, that is what whacky, right-wing nut jobs have been telling you all along. The reason Americans have the right to bear arms is to protect themselves from an oppressive government. A point missed until a heavily liberal-run town started oppressing it’s heavily-democrat populace.

Karma anyone?

It’s not likely that Moore will join the NRA or start attending #2A rallies any time soon, but he’s at least helping others realize that the constitution has always been and is now relevant and .. well.. smarter than him.

Is Colt Going Bankrupt?

Colt_logo

**UPDATE – Colt has filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy as of 6/15/2015.

The New York Times reported last week that legendary firearms manufacturer, Colt, is undergoing something that looks a lot like bankruptcy.

Colt is considering two options to avoid running out of operating capital – a bond exchange and a prepacked bankruptcy.

Existing bonds would be exchanged for new bonds with longer maturities and higher interest rates. Bondholders would also enjoy a rather severe haircut – the new bonds would have a face amount that was 70 percent lower. Ouch.

But because Colt has also announced that the exchange offer is conditional on receiving nearly full bondholder participation, I’m going to assume that won’t happen and move along to Plan B.

Plan B is a “prepack,” or a prepackaged bankruptcy case. An American prepack – the term has a different meaning in Britain – involves solicitation of votes on a bankruptcy plan before the bankruptcy is actually filed. Once the case is filed, the debtor can move quickly to court approval of the plan.

That’s a ton of econo-speak for most, but the lay of the land is straight-forward – Colt is not showing its hand, hoping to bluff bond holders into a debt roll-over (bond exchange) or somewhat less-favorable prepackaged bankruptcy.

The first, debt roll-over is where debt that is soon due, is replaced by longer term debt. Kind of like having a ten year mortgage you can’t make the payment on and you offer the bank a swap for a 30 year mortgage to avoid a default (also known as a re-finance.) The benefit to this approach is that bond holders will be offered secured bonds in trade for their currently unsecured paper. That means that should Colt declare bankruptcy in the future, they would have claim to the assets of the company – right now, they do not.

The second option is a strategic re-organization. Prepack or prepackaged bankruptcy plans allow the debtor to arrange the term of their debt re-organization and solicit debtor votes on the plan before declaring bankruptcy. In essence, there is little threat of debtor opposition and the arrangement can go through quickly.

It would appear that Colt didn’t really bother talking to their creditors. That makes a prepack harder and really complicates a debt roll-over.

The problem for Colt is what happens if bond holders reject both ideas? Colt enters a contentious, ugly, nasty, no good Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

– or Freedom Group (a.k.a. Remington) buys them.

Which one is worse?

Bloomberg – Obama Gun Control Efforts Worry Democrats for 2016

Hillary Clinton anti-gunEven huge gun control proponents like Hillary Clinton and Dianne “it’s legal to hunt humans” Feinstein (D-CA) have been silent lately on the issue of gun control. The Obama-Bloomberg anti-gun push is making all Democrats nervous with 2016 so close.

Il Duce ObamaIn an April 10th interview with ABC News, President Obama issued a warning to Americans that he hasn’t “given up on gun control” and that he is “going to keep chipping away at this.” – Democrats wish he would just stop talking about it.

Michael Bloomberg has led several rich-boy financed efforts to create fake grass roots organizations (astro-turf) to lead some Americans to believe that defending yourself is dangerous. Democrats really want him to stop.

Being anti-gun rights in America is a third rail to politicians. As each push to destroy the second amendment is made, more Americans become gun owners. It has reached the point that just about any sane person understands that the defense of their family and property rests solely on them. The police won’t get their until the crime has been committed, but then they will certainly do everything they can to catch the bad people.

The realization that liberal policies have not made anyone safer is accepted by most Americans. Looking at violent crime rates in centers of liberalism like Los Angeles, Chicago and Detroit, the voting population has discovered that the government cannot protect them.

2016 is approaching and politicians cannot afford to be associated with Bloomberg or other anti-gun groups and initiatives.

Democrats struggle with their anti-gun initiatives because their credibility on the issues is nearly non-existent and they are typically uncomfortable talking about guns. Saying that AR-15’s can launch 30 rounds in half of a second, that magazines are single-use or that standard capacity magazines make murder legal are just a few of the countless terrible and unfounded arguments made by the left.

Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY): “The Second Amendment only protects the people who want all the guns they can have. The rest of us, we’ve got no Second Amendment. What are we supposed to do?

Dianne Feinstein hates gunsSen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) “And yet it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines.”

Democrats would prefer not to be forced to talk about guns and are wishing that President Obama and Michael Bloomberg would just shut-up about the issue.

Proposed ATF AR-15 Ammo Ban Causing Supply Shortages (again)

M855 AR-15 Ammo BanThe Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATFE or ATF) has decided that M855 AR-15 ammo should be banned. The resulting retail chaos has left consumers with no ammo to buy as the spring shooting season comes in.

Consumers aren’t just clearing the shelves of M855, they’re buying any and all AR-15 (5.56 and .223) ammo, 7.62×39 ammo and just about anything that they worry the Obama administration will go after next.

The reason for slippery slope thinking is clear – once the President gets what he wnats, he will take more.

The ATF has decided to start the AR ammo ban with the popular “green-tip” M855 ammo. Their reasoning is that it is armor piercing and can be shot out of a pistol.

First, the pistols they refer to are gigantic. 10.5 to 14″ long barrels, long buffer extension tubes in many cases and HEAVY. The police are not worried about criminals running around with $1100 “pistols.” They can see those things a mile away. It’s the tiny gun in the palm of the hand that kills most first responders.

Secondly, Class 3A (toughest non-plate) armor would be penetrated by just about any modern centerfire rifle cartridge.  The ATF is setting precedent that any cartridge capable of penetrating class 3a armor is dangerous and should be banned. Tell your teenage son to sell his deer-hunting .308 – those Remington Core-Lokt rounds will tear right through police issue body armor.  The ATF will be coming after those soon too under their current logic.

The Springfield News-Leader reported that local gun stores have seen their stock depleted just hours after the ATF press release on the proposed ban:

“We sold out of what we had in stock,” said Ryan Cook, manager of Eagle Armory in Springfield. “We didn’t have a lot in the store but I might have sold four or five cases after ATF’s statement came out. I called our suppliers but they said there was none available to order. It’s like the ammo shortage before. People are going to panic.”

RAM Arms, a leading seller of ammo and firearms based in North Carolina, says that it’s not just AR ammo the proposed ban is affecting:

Our M855 and inexpensive AR ammo got bought up right away. Even a replacement shipment of over 8,000 rounds got bought up in just hours, said J. Hewett, operations manager. Customers are buying anything you can shoot through an AR or AK in huge amounts and we now have whole shelves with nothing on them.

Stopping the AR ammo ban is nearly impossible. The public comment period ends March 15th and the ATF has already made their decision. Contacting your member of Congress is likely the only way to prevent this ban from spreading into other ammunition the President finds unfavorable (which is all of it)

Who’s Killing Who in the U.S. the REAL facts!

Remember when your parents told you to believe half of what you see and almost none of what you hear?

I think of that every time I see a Tweet or Facebook post from people I know never check out their information. These erroneous “posts” get traction mostly because they are received by friends and family who think you would never send them something that wasn’t true. Many have been bitten, including me, because we don’t take time to check it out. Yet it seems when it comes to political issues, especially, we never, ever, ever want to challenge loved ones. Well, it’s time to start!

This week a Tweet floated by asking the question, “What is it with white men in society? Why are so many killing American Muslims, women, blacks and children?” This from a person who has worked in the media and claims that they only speak the truth, but people like me on the Right are wacked!

Low IQ voters and those with the victim mentality eat posts like this up. But it’s all wrong. I didn’t go to any Right-wing sites or Left-wing sites. I went to those highly partisan sites known as the FBI (for crime stats) and the DOJ (for crime reports).

Let’s look at a few:

2012 DOJ – The percentages of black adults and white adults arrested for murder were similar, with 49.3 percent being black and 48.3 percent being white.

2012 Black juveniles accounted for 51.5 percent of all juveniles arrested for violent crimes. White juveniles accounted for 61.6 percent of all juveniles arrested for property crimes.

Doesn’t look like a wide margin to me!

AS I looked for the numbers I found a little known fact. The DOJ combines Hispanic and white in many statistics. Why? They really can’t get percentages

The Real JV Team Emerges!

Talk about a “haunting comment.” This will go down as one of President Obama’s all time.

Can you imagine how thick the book of “Obama’s Greatest Faux Paus” will be? Or how many volumes it will be?  Do I need to list them all or do we have them memorized as some of us do the “Pledge of Allegiance”? (Notice I said some.)

Mr. Obama called ISIS a “JV Team” but now he says he didn’t quite say that. Just like he now says he didn’t quite say “you can keep your doctor” and he didn’t quite say “your health care premiums would be less than you cell phone bill.” It sure seems like we keep hearing him wrong and the internet records him wrong a lot too!

To continue, he called ISIS a JV Team because he felt they didn’t lack the brain power, resources, and commitment that it takes to go after the Pro Teams, like the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Syria and God only knows who else he was thinking of.

You see the reason you have a JV Team is because the players are younger, less experienced, and need more time to practice together. You don’t usually want them on the big boys team because they would drag them down.

That “JV Team” that Mr. Obama tagged, aka ISIS, is now in control of a very large part of the Middle East. They are responsible for the murder of tens of thousands of innocent people. They are part of the reason oil prices are falling as they steal oil, load it up in stolen tankers, and sell it on the open market. They are instilling fear in and around Europe and parts of the U.S. These junior league boys are acting like, and accomplishing, senior league goals.

Why? Because they are committed at all costs, even to the point of death. That’s what makes them senior league. They are willing to give it all for the end game, and when they are up against it, they give some more. Their leaders speak out and stand behind their misguided principles and get the resources they need, by any means, to ensure they win.

Enter the “White House JV Team” (WHJV), the “Coyotes” ( I use coyotes because zoologist say they are the most cowardly animal and only attack when the enemy is well outnumbered.) This administration has gained control of one of the most powerful and feared fighting forces on the planet since the Roman army and has effectively turned them in to the most unreliable fighting force on the planet. And it’s no fault of the capable men and women that serve in the military.

This president knows more about more things than everyone of our great thinkers and philosophers before him. Just ask him and he tell you so!

I say this because he puts together military, economic, and social issue committees and takes little to none of the suggested actions from these committees.

He makes every mistake a first year law or medical student makes. Most students feel they have the answers after their first year in school and are willing to tell you what’s wrong with you before you even ask.

He put together a military commission on how to deal with ISIS and the threats in the Middle East. After they returned with their findings, mind you the committee was made up of seasoned military experts, he decided they were wrong and took it in another direction.  Ignoring the experts. A serious JV move.

To the jobs committee, he appointed the head of G.E. to chair it. The guy who took the majority of U.S. jobs overseas. Makes sense? Not so much. And once again implements almost none of the committee suggestions.

He gathered some well-known economists together for another committee, but none from the opposing side of the economic aisle. And when the committee came back with their recommendations, he implemented some but not the majority.

Support For Gun Rights Hits 20 Year High

Despite the best efforts of the media and politicians, gun rights are more popular than ever.

New polling by Pew Research shows that most Americans support gun rights over gun control for the first time in two decades.

The poll found that fifty two percent of Americans believe that protecting the right of to own guns is more important than expanding gun control laws, while forty six percent supported increased gun control.

Support for gun rights has risen seven percent in the two years since the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The poll reports that there has been a “substantial shift in attitudes” since then.

The poll also found that most Americans believe that gun ownership promotes individual safety. Fifty seven percent of Americans say gun ownership “protects people from becoming victims of crime”, while thirty eight percent believe that it decreases personal safety.

Support for the right to own guns has risen most dramatically among women and minorities. Five percent more women and ten percent more black Americans support gun rights over gun control than they did five years ago.

Public approval of gun rights has been increasing for two decades. In the mid-90s, nearly sixty percent of Americans preferred gun control to gun rights.

What Happened To The NRA’s Opposition To NSA Surveillance?

The National Rifle Association wrote an editorial in the Washington Times last week calling on the Senate to pass the USA Freedom Act, a bill that would have limited the National Security Agency’s illegal spying program.

The article called the USA Freedom Act “badly needed legislation” that should be “sent to the White House as soon as possible.”But the article disappeared just a few hours after it was posted. The only explanation came from the editor of the Washington Times, who said that the article was taken down as a “courtesy” to the authors.The NRA hasn’t said anything about why it had the article removed, and it hasn’t issued any follow up statement about the USA Freedom Act.

The NRA previously stood strong against the NSA’s illegal surveillance practices. In 2013, itjoined a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union against Obama’s surveillance program, saying that the program “could allow identification of NRA members, supporters, potential members and other persons with whom the NRA communicates.”

But when a bill to abolish NSA surveillance actually came up for a vote, the NRA ate its own words. Why?

The day after the article was retracted, the USA Freedom Act failed in the Senate after being filibustered by Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell and other big government Republicans.

The reasons for the NRA’s retraction are unclear, but judging by its close relationship with the Republican establishment, there may have been some backroom deal-making going on.

The Equality Hypocrites are at it again.

You know those hippy throwbacks who think it would be cool if everyone was “equal” like the Constitution guarantees? Just a heads up, the guarantee is for equal access to succeed, not a guarantee for equal success.

This president can’t seem to grasp that truth. He has a hard time grasping many truths. And now, he’s given illegals, yes, the people who came here by breaking the law, a leg up over hard-working, tax-paying Americans.

One of the first in-your-face insults was him pushing states to give in-state tuition to illegals. And once again for clarity… these people are here illegally, breaking the law, and not paying taxes. It just shows his disdain for the American way of life. Veterans can’t even get the same privileges. They have to live in a state for the state’s designated residency period before they are considered a resident who qualifies for in state tuition. Maybe they should renounce their citizenship and run up from south of the border into the arms of California Governor Jerry Brown who recently told all illegals (and anyone thinking about coming to America illegally) to come to California they were welcome here! And Governor Brown won by big numbers in California, they deserve him!

Mr. Obama has opened previously closed military bases (remember, they were too costly to keep open). He flew in medical supplies with staff to treat the recent influx of Illegals coming across the border. This was a “humanitarian act” according to Mr. Obama. Wouldn’t it also have been a humanitarian act to reopen bases to help our vets? But it appears President Obama wouldn’t think of flying in medical personal to help our vets to shorten the time it takes them to get help because of the costs. Really Mr. President? Do you disrespect us that much? I guess you really do believe Americans are stupid.

Mr. Obama, you send Eric Holder into Ferguson to threateningly suggest that there is much more going on there behind the scenes with the police than actually is. How about you send him in to the VA with threats and a guarantee that many will lose their jobs if they don’t get their act together?

Remember when you told us that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) would not pay for abortions? Remember that? Remember you said there was no money in there for illegals to get healthcare? Not to mention all that “keep your doctor,” “cheaper rates,” “better policies,” you know the “Obama bucket-o-lies” bit.

So then we find that there actually is money for abortions in Obamacare in the form of the morning after pill, abortions for “emergency reasons,” “rape and incest.” Mr. Prez, I know you have a word problem, but abortion is abortion. And when the government pays for them that is taxpayer money not yours.

Now you have given 5+ million illegals the ability to take more American jobs and drain the system. Let’s do this at a Sesame Street level so you can understand. You see, once the “illegals” feel free to roam about the country, employers will be able to hire them, and still at a lesser rate than their American counterparts. The jobs they leave open will be back-filled by more people coming over the border because the president will not do anything to secure the borders any more than they are today.

He claims that Republicans wouldn’t sign an immigration bill that included the hiring of over 30 thousand more border patrol personnel. Nice try! Would you have given those new border patrol agents the same “rules of engagement” the current border patrol has? Because if that was the plan, then they would be just as useless as you’ve made the current border patrol. Our poor border patrol agents have their hands tied so badly that even they say they should just stay home.

The president’s claims on “deportation numbers” are bogus. He is counting only those that are caught and released at the border. His numbers are dismal for deporting those here in jail or living in the shadows.
