On toting guns and verbose stupidity.

Sometimes I have to the harsh realization that there are people inherently stupid, mean or both. According to Political Radar, Democratic Congressman Alcee Hastings (District 23, Florida) recently tried to scare voters into voting for Obama by saying:

“If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention,” said Hastings. “Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through.”

Basically this mentally challenged politician is waving the banner of THE KLAN IS COMING in order to promote Hossanah Obama into the White House. I am guessing his prejudices are so deep that if he sees a white with a gun he thinks lynching. It is a pity that he does not consider intellectual lynching a crime.

Alcee Hastings has a score of 100 from the ACLU, the same ones that do not recognize the SCOTUS DC v Heller decision.  He is highly regarded by almost every left wing organization in the US although he did not fare well with The Genocide Intervention Network–Darfur Scores or Latin America Working Group. I guess if you are a non-voting minority, you don’t enter in his radar. He did get a 93 from the Brady Campaign but he got remedial from the NRA and Gun Owners of America. In other words he is a bonafide gun grabber and a despicable human being who I guess would be willing to sell his mother for the cool side of a pillow.

British Gun Free Zone Experiment: Another Failure or two.

I bumped into several news items published in Ski News related to the rising gun violence in England and I am amazed that it happens at all! From unarmed police officers being shot by armed thugs to teens brandishing AK-type weapons and scaring the hell out of motorists to individuals making weapons to sell to gangs none of these were supposed to be happening in the Old Country. The Queen’s subjects were guaranteed by their govrnment that banning weapons from civilian possesion was going to keep them safe. The promise did not hold.

One in 10 brits say that they have been affected by gun crimes. The number should be zero according to the gun control “experts” that still insist on spouting their failed theories. And as the gun laws are slowly being eliminated in the USA with a corresponding degree in the number of crimes, England’s viloent crime rate keeps rising.  Still the “experts’s” solution is to add new gun control laws and increasingly more power to the police without realizing that decreasing the number of victims by empowering them to defend themselves is the answer and not disarming civilians and thus creating a guaranteed pool of unarmed product for the criminal consumers.

But what do I know? I am a gun nut and they are Civilized… and dying.

Obama Says: “I don’t have the votes.” and I say let’s keep it that way.

The latest from Hosanna Obama comes from the Wall Street Journal. It seems that during one of those “spontaneous” town hall meetings at a factory in P.A. Obama was asked about a rumor that he intended to ban guns to which he started blabbing the following:

“If you’ve got a gun in your house, I’m not taking it….Even if I want to take them away, I don’t have the votes in Congress,’’ he said. “This can’t be the reason not to vote for me. Can everyone hear me in the back? I see a couple of sportsmen back there. I’m not going to take away your guns.’’

OK, how stupid does he thinks people are? In his elitist case, plenty. And that is because as a good Liberal, Obama thinks the common folk are too stupid to grasp the advanced ideas he has to make everybody equal (read miserable) in his future Obama Nation. Good thing is that Obama does not have the capacity of thinking on his feet and lie properly and we are rewarded with pearls of stupidity like the one above. If you want another example of his verbal trip & falls, here is another quote from the article:

Obama trotted out his standard policy stance, that he had a deep respect for the “traditions of gun ownership” but favored measures in big cities to keep guns out of the hands of “gang bangers and drug dealers’’ in big cities “who already have them and are shooting people.

Now this comes across as insanely stupid since his political hometown of Chicago, one of the most anti-gun in the country is racked with a murder wave that beats imagination. It is easier for a citizen of the Windy City to get cancer than to legally obtain a firearm yet the gang-bangers and drug dealers (already breaking tons of laws for possessing firearms) have no trouble getting guns. Yet Obama plans to repeat the failed experiment across the nation and make us forced victims of his absurd stance. Of course if he becomes president, he will have the full power of the Secret Service to protect him but your Average Joe in Chicago, New York, Boise, Miami, Nashville, etc will have to deal with a criminal working his trade under the sponsorship of the Federal Government.

The Chicago Gun Free Zone Experiment: Failure.

According to CBS 2 Chicago, the 2008 summer has not been kind to the residents of the Windy City. One hundred and twenty three residents were shot dead between Memorial day and Labor Day. Now, this was not supposed to happen, no sir. According to Mayor Daley and the cognoscenti from the Brady Bunch, Chicago’s Gun Ban guarantees a violence-free environment where children can play freely and adults live in peace without the threat of death or maiming by bullets.

This would be risible except for the fact that 123 people died this summer. As the report mentions U.S. Service men were safer in a war zone than citizens were in the Gun Free City.  Chicago Eldermen will answer the same way they always do: with more Gun Control and with less Civil Rights with the inevitable conclussion of more innocent people dead that nevertheless will have a chance for the same old Pro Criminal policticians in future elections.

Bloody Lessons not learned. Stupidity and Ingnorance kills.

Update:

Great article in Human Events about the Chicago Summer of Murder. Best quote is this:

But those options don’t appeal to Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis. What he proposes is a crackdown on assault weapons….As of March 31, there had been 87 homicides in the city. When I asked the Chicago Police Department how many of the murders are known to have involved assault rifles, the answer came back: one.

Oy!

Ike Incoming

My stomach is sounding the alarm big time. The old churning-super-fast-spin-cycle warning of incoming doom tells me Hurricane Ike is going to do a tap dancing act in my neighborhood and I hate dancing in general.

The sucker is ugly as the picture shows and if you take in consideration that he is blowing at 135 miles per hour, what we have is an honest to God fifties horror blob intending on destroying whatever it can swallows.

Tomorrow and the day after are going to be very busy days getting ready for Ike. The shutters are going to be installed, at least in most of the non-necessary openings, generator checked, gasoline hoarded, double check the pantry for items that need to be stocked and of course more water.  Just to be sure I’ll go over Southcom’s Hurricane Survival Kit which is perhaps the best checklist out there.
