More State's Sovereignty Talk in the Alternative Media

check it out here.

In My Opinion Pay Pal Sucks

Yep...I said it. First they were anti gun, now it appears that they could care less about the wounded Sons and Daughters of America. As my readers can judge from my past commentaries, this is a huge sore spot for me. I have only used their service once in a restaurant that didn't have the ability to take credit cards. Be assured that was the only and LAST time those sorry excuses for Americans will ever get any business from me. If you want to know what's going on, the fellas over at Black Five, as well as other gun bloggers are discussing this issue.

What Happened to the "Justice" in DOJ?

That is what I was wondering when I read this commentary.

An Interesting View of Janet N's Homeland Security Proposal

You can read it here.

I Have a Solution For the New York City Homeless Dilema

Well, actually a reader came up with the initial concept which I will attempt to embellish. It is a well known fact that many wealthy New Yorkers have winter homes here in Florida. If you don't believe me, the next time you hear someone rudely honking a horn in traffic in any beach town, take a look at the tag, and it is probably from New York. There is an old expression about Florida, which is "The further North you go in Florida, the further South you are". That is because New Yorkers (and other Northerners) have moved in and taken over much of South and Central Florida.

Now here is my twist on a readers proposal. Since many wealthy New Yorkers (including Mayor Bloomberg) possibly have winter homes here in Florida, instead of just giving these homeless people a plane ticket to Florida (to get them out of New York) why not give them a home? These politicians could let them stay in their winter houses that they are paying expenses on, that are vacant most of the year anyway. Since many of these politicians have a socialist slant anyway, wouldn't this action be viewed as good for the collective by their fellow liberals?

Hat Tip to the ever brilliant Steve-o for the concept

Here is a bold little twist from another website

New York Shipping Homeless Called "Shameful"

quote:

Local homeless advocates in Central Florida say New York City's practice of shipping homeless people to other cities is shameful.

Of course it is shameful. The politics of New York City and Mayor Michael Bloomberg is shameful. The politicians of NYC come up with these lame brain ideas, their lackeys in Albany support them State wide, and the other people of upstate New York (past Albany) end up paying the price. Someone needs to flush the toilet that is NY politics, and get some new people in there.

Airport Confiscates Boy's Disney Toys - Cousin Says TSA Agents Went Too Far

quote:

ORLANDO, Fla. -- His step-father just died, so to cheer him up an 8-year-old North Carolina boy's family took him to Disney for the first time ever. But what happened on the way back home soured the trip, and has his family irate. The boy bought toys while at Disney including a Pirates of the Caribbean sword, a light saber and a wooden gun. The boy was headed home from his cousin's house in Ft. Lauderdale when a pair of Transportation Safety Administration agents confiscated his toys because replica weapons are against the rules.

There are some more tourists that won’t be returning to Orlando in the near future. This is what it has come to people. Aren’t we proud? I was at the airport just the other day. I had to wait a while so I decided to assess the TSA employees I saw as to their proficiency in the way they carried themselves. I saw a few seasoned professionals who carried themselves in a manner, that I would have confidence in their ability to handle a critical situation if one arose. A larger number of the employees were just common people trying to make a living, and then there were a bunch of “Barney Fifes” that would instill zero confidence in me or anyone else who had any understanding of security.

Janet N Got Something Partially Right

Napolitano says public should help fight terrorism

quote:

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says the U.S. government has not done everything it can to educate and engage the public in preventing terrorism…

…She said the public has been treated as a "liability to be protected," instead of an asset in maintaining the nation's security…

…Americans, she says, have a role along with local law enforcement, the federal government and the international community. She urged people to prepare their families, volunteer, get free training and join local emergency response teams.


Let me help you out here a little Ms N. First of all, you need to tell your boss in Washington that law abiding citizens need to have their constitutional right to carry re-issued in Chicago and New York City. Next, you need to approach all of your fellow liberal democrats such as Chucky Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Bab's Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Michael Bloomberg, etc, and inform them how a national right to carry law is the first defense against a terroristic act on American soil. Until you do that, what you have said is just feel good political rhetoric, and I really can't take any of it seriously. With all of the former military and law enforcement in this nation, as well as well trained private citizens, if these law abiding Americans are armed, then the balance of power is immediately shifted in America's favor.

Home Grown Terrorists?

Check out this video.

quote from this article:

Prosecutors said Boyd received terrorist training in Pakistan and brought the teachings back to North Carolina, recruiting followers willing to die as martyrs waging jihad, the Arabic word for holy war.

Here is an interesting quote from Mr Obama found here:

..."I traveled to Pakistan when I was in college -- I knew what Sunni and Shia was [sic] before I joined the Senate Foreign Relations Committee."

The article goes on to inform us:

This last part -- a college trip to Pakistan -- was news to many of us who have been following the race closely. And it was odd that we hadn't hear about it before, given all the talk of Pakistan during this campaign.

So I asked the Obama campaign for more information.

Apparently, according to the Obama campaign, In 1981 -- the year Obama transferred from Occidental College to Columbia University -- Obama visited his mother and sister Maya in Indonesia. After that visit, Obama traveled to Pakistan with a friend from college whose family was from there. The Obama campaign says Obama was in Pakistan for about three weeks, staying with his friend's family in Karachi and also visiting Hyderabad in Southern India.


Since American veterans were broad brushed as "potential right wing terrorists", then I guess it is only fair that no one is excluded from the scrutiny. Hopefully our transparent president will be forthcoming with his Indonesian passport, possibly under the alias of Barry Soetoro, to the proper authorities for review so that if there is any question about his travels, any and all doubt can be removed from the minds of the American people.

New York City Mayor Bloomberg Looking Out For Number 1

From the "escape from New York" file:

NYC Buying One-Way Tickets for Homeless to Leave City

quote:

NEW YORK — New York City is buying one-way plane tickets for homeless families to leave the city. It's part of a program by Mayor Michael Bloomberg's administration to keep the homeless out of the expensive shelter system, which costs $36,000 a year per family….

…Families have been sent to 24 states and five continents, mostly to Puerto Rico, Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas.


Here is another article about Orlando.

Maybe Mayor Michael Bloomberg can give a few guns to each of the exiled family member to take with them as well, to lower the number of illegal guns in the city seeing as how all of his gun anal laws haven't done much to curtail gun crime in NYC, and have only served to leave law abiding New Yorker's defenseless and at the mercy of New Yorks numerous street thugs.

Pennsylvania Avenue's "Leg Breakers"

Check out this article by Michelle Malkin:

Bully Boys: A Brief History of White House Thuggery

quote:

At the Justice Department, Obama lawyers are now blocking a House inquiry into the suspicious decision to dismiss default judgments against radical New Black Panther Party activists who intimidated voters and poll workers on Election Day in Philadelphia. The DOJ is preventing Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., from meeting with the trial team in the case. Wolf has been pressing for answers on what communications Attorney General Eric Holder and his deputies conducted with third-party interest groups and other political appointees about the case. So far: radio silence.

In the mafia culture, bully boys depend on a code of silence and allegiance -- omerta -- not only among their brethren, but also from the victims. The victims of Obama thugocracy are no longer cooperating. Perhaps it won't be long until some of the enforcers start to sing, too.

It Must be the Same “New Math” That the Current Administration is Using

Police Agencies Getting Millions From Feds

quote:

CENTRAL FLORIDA -- Police agencies across Central Florida are getting nearly $10 million from the federal government to hire more officers. Eyewitness News talked to one who didn't even want the money. The money comes from the Economic Stimulus Plan and the White House just released which police agencies are getting it and how much.

The big winners in our area are the Orlando Police Department, which will get $3 million and save 15 police officer jobs.


Can someone get out their calculator and divide 15 into $3 million please? According to their website, these are the salary ranges:

Start: $40,348 (after graduation from the Academy)
Top Officer: $64,663

Can one of the readers help me out with this please? This new math is so confusing to me.

An Interesting Perspective on Illegal Immigration

This has been circulating on the internet:

Recently large demonstrations have taken place across the country protesting the fact that Congress is finally addressing the issue of illegal immigration.

Certain people are angry that the US might protect its own borders, might make it harder to sneak into this country and, once here, to stay indefinitely.

Let me see if I correctly understand the thinking behind these protests.

Let's say I break into your house.

Let's say that when you discover me in your house, you insist that I leave.

But I say, 'No! I like it here. It's better than my house. I've made all the beds and washed the dishes and did the laundry and swept the floors. I've done all the things you don't like to do. I'm hard-working and honest (except for when I broke into your house).

According to the protesters:

You are Required to let me stay in your house
You are Required to feed me
You are Required to add me to your family's insurance plan
You are Required to Educate my kids
You are Required to Provide other benefits to me & to my family
My husband will do all of your yard work because he is also hard-working and honest. (except for that breaking in part).

If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my friends who will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my RIGHT to be there.

It's only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than I do, and I'm just trying to better myself. I'm a hard-working and honest, person, except for well, you know, I did break into your house And what a deal it is for me!!!

I live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of cold, uncaring, selfish, prejudiced, and bigoted behavior.

Oh yeah, and I DEMAND that you learn MY LANGUAGE!!! so that you can communicate with me.

Why can't people see how ridiculous this is?! America is populated and governed by idiots. If you agree, pass it on (in English).

If not blow it off......... along with your future Social Security funds and a lot of the former benefits of being an American Citizen.

Concealed Carry Across State Lines

Here is a nice little commentary from a New Hampshire blogger. New Hampshire is a great state for firearms, and overall for personal freedoms as well. In an earlier commentary, I posted some videos about the open carry movement there. Now if the locals can just keep the Massachusetts liberals out of their state, they might be able to maintain some of those freedoms. Gun Shy recommends that the readers spend some time poking around over at the blog, because he has a lot of good commentary posted there.

Personal Safety (home invasions)

Victim ID'd In Deadly Home Invasion - 24-Year-Old Shot In West Melbourne

WEST MELBOURNE, Fla. -- For the third time in a week in Brevard County, a home invasion has resulted in a shooting death. Shortly after 9 p.m. Friday, gunmen broke into a house at 6844 Idlewylde Circle and confronted several people inside the single-family home, police said. Shots were fired, and one person, identified Saturday as Rusty W. Locke, 24, died at the scene, according to police. A second victim -- who remains unidentified -- was taken to Melbourne's Holmes Regional Medical Center in "very critical condition," according to Brevard County sheriff's spokeswoman Sgt. Linda Moros.

Here in O-Town we have the potential to have three home invasions in one day (maybe even one hour). It looks like Brevard County is racing to catch up. Brevard county is a pandora's box that is just starting to open like it did here in 2005 when the homicide rate escalated. They had better get the lid closed before it turns into another Orlando. With all of the criminal activities these days, people need to start thinking defensively, and reinforce their doors and get a firearm (or two) and become skilled in their utilization. This way when the thugs attempt to get get violent, the solution is just a squeeze or two away.

Okay now for a quiz:

Question What do you call three armed violent thugs on your front porch at 3 am trying to break down your door with the intention of robbing your home and doing violence to you and your family?

Answer If you are prepared, and have positioned yourself in a way that you can administer effective fire, then that is commonly known as a target rich environment.

PEOPLE DON'T PREPARE TO FAIL...THEY FAIL TO PREPARE

Special thanks to Steve-o for the Q&A concept

It Appears That They Just Can't Help Themselves...

I am sure the readers remember the document that was originally released by Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) which turned into a media nightmare for Janet Napolitano and DHS. This document cited veterans as people had the ability to be potential right wing terrorists. It also cited Americans who were concerned about unemployment, taxes and the IRS, illegal immigration, border security, gangs, abortion, gun restrictions, FEMA, The Federal Reserve, and the North American Union as also being suspect. The MIAC Document also stated that potential domestic terrorists might also support Presidential Candidates Ron Paul, Bob Barr, and Chuck Baldwin. The Southern Poverty Law Center was cited as a research source for the MIAC Document, which pretty much broad brushed all conservative Americans and Libertarians as potential right wing terrorists. It seems that The Southern Poverty Law Center is at it again, so I would like to link to a commentary about their latest endeavors. You can read that here.

This is what the SPLC was miffed about.

Would-Be Robber Shot and Killed

Orange County Sheriff's deputies say a robbery victim turned the tables on two robbery suspects...

...Deputies say Miguel Jimenez was walking into his apartment at Villa Tuscany near Ocoee when 18-year-old Andri Benjamin ran up, put a gun in his face and tried to rob him. But Jimenez was carrying a loaded revolver and a concealed weapons permit to go along with it. He pulled his gun out and shot Benjamin several times, killing him...

...Deputies rushed to the scene while Jimenez was holding the second suspect at gunpoint.

Sadly, today's generation of younger people have bought into all the hype and movie images of the gansta lifestyle being glamorous and exciting. As this young man learned, it can be over in the muzzle flash of a firearm. As concealed carry permits increase in Florida, there will be more and more incidences such as this.

The Gun Bloggers Have Some Fun With Loose Comments..

...unfortunately, those comments came from the mouth of an LAPD rep. You can read the hilarity here. I encourage the readers to weigh in at say uncle's blog in the comments section.

ATF Finally Gets the Facts Straight

Better late than never. Let's see how many politicians keep repeating the "old" information (lies), and how many media people come clean and report the real statistics.

Take a look at this article.

It Appears That "Pops" Understands Shot Placement

Burglar With Fake Gun Shot Dead

quote:

BRISTOL, Fla. -- Authorities said a burglar with a fake gun was shot and killed by a Panhandle homeowner with a real gun. The Liberty County Sheriff's Office reports that Octavious Barnes, 24, broke into the home of Bradley Harvil, 82, home and tried to steal about $1,100 in cash Sunday night. Authorities said Barnes was waiving around a toy pistol, colored black with a marker to look real, and assaulted Harvil. The homeowner was able to get to his real .357 magnum and shot Barnes in the chest and in the eye.

So Much for the Race Card

Black Officer At Scholar's Home Backs Arrest

quote:

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- A black police officer who was at Henry Louis Gates Jr.'s home when the black Harvard scholar was arrested says he fully supports how his white fellow officer handled the situation.

Mr Obama, who was outraged by this incident is the same person who had no problem with members of the New Black Panther Party being outside of Philadelphia polling places dressed in para military style dress and carrying clubs. When he promised transparency during his campaign, I guess he meant hypocrisy.

As a side note, I find it ironic that the president who is a mixed race person (white/black), who was raised by his white mother and white grandmother, has a problem with white people. Maybe it is because he sat under the teaching of his pastor for so many years.

Now THIS is the American Way

Bystanders Nab Alleged Purse-Snatcher - 75-Year-Old Woman Robbed Outside DeLand Publix

quote:

According to a police report, the woman was using a cane as she was about to enter the store when Shields grabbed her purse and fled. She yelled for help, and three men chased and caught Shields, the police report said. Matthew Ridenour and the other two men held him down, and Ridenour punched Shields when he thought Shields was going to swing at him, the report stated.

Whether he is running a SAW (Squad Automatic Weapon) or a saw (of the chainsaw variety) a Marine will fight like the hounds out of hell, especially when protecting others.

CODY, Wyoming — A Colorado man used a chain saw to fight off a mountain lion that attacked him during a camping trip with his wife and two toddlers in northwestern Wyoming…

…Dustin Britton, a 32-year-old mechanic and ex-Marine from Windsor, Colo., said he was alone cutting firewood about 100 feet from his campsite in the Shoshone National Forest when he saw the 100-pound lion staring at him from some bushes. The 6-foot, 170-pound Britton said he raised his 18-inch chain saw and met the lion head-on as it pounced — a collision he described as feeling like a grown man running directly into him.

"It batted me three or four times with its front paws, and as quick as I hit it with that saw, it just turned away," he said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.

There Goes the Neighborhood…AGAIN

There was another shooting which appears to be random last night, fairly close to the campus of University of Central Florida. According to the victim, the family stopped because they were lost and trying to get directions, when another vehicle rolled up and started shooting through their windows. They had a small child in the car who was unharmed, and the driver was glazed by a bullet. A while back, there was another random type of shooting just down the road at a new mini gold course. The local media never followed up on it (the local media seems to be scattered and weak in its reporting). In an earlier commentary, I outlined the hazards of living in East Orlando, especially for college students who are not aware of the craziness that is occurring on a more regular basis in this once nice area of Orlando. Gun Shy suspects that it could be young gang members trying to get some street rep by doing random acts of violence to demonstrate how tough and or heartless they are.

They also found 500 grenades and thousands of bullets believed stolen from the Guatemalan army, and in mid-June, Guatemalan authorities confiscated nearly 10 million pseudoephedrine pills in a shipping container in Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala's main port on the Pacific. It was the country's biggest seizure of the substance.

Chuckles the Clown and His Understudies Have Entered the Tent

Schumer: I'll fillibuster Thune gun amendment

quote:

A posse of Dems led by Chuck Schumer (D-NY) are threatening to filibuster a controversial amendment that would allow licensed handgun owners to carry their weapons into states that have similarly carrying laws. Schumer, Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Frank Lautenberg are (D-NJ) are trying to block the amendment, sponsored by South Dakota Republican John Thune, that would allow gun owners to supersede state and local laws restricting their transportation.

As we can see, it is the usual cast, or troupe so to speak.

quote:

Schumer: “This amendment is a bridge too far, and could endanger the safety of millions of Americans. Each state has carefully crafted its concealed-carry laws in the way that makes the most sense to protect its citizens. Clearly, large, urban areas merit a different standard than rural areas. To gut the ability of local police and sheriffs to determine who should be able to carry a concealed weapon makes no sense. It could reverse the dramatic success we’ve had in reducing crime in most all parts of America. In the past, the gun lobby has had as its rallying cry, ‘Let each state decide.’ With this amendment, they are doing a 180-degree flip. Whether you are pro-gun or pro-gun control, this measure deserves to be defeated. We will do everything we can to stop this poisonous amendment from being enacted.”

So much for the second amendment and the constitution Chuckles. Here is a picture of Chuckles with his old pal Hillary.

It has always amazed Gun Shy how many liberal Jews in America are vehemently anti gun which makes them against personal self defense. (Shumer, Boxer, Feinstein, Lautenberg, Bloomberg, etc) If the Jews of Europe had been armed and able to defend themselves against the Nazi's, then the holocaust may have been averted. Instead six million Jews were murdered, 1.5 million of them being children. I don't understand how choosing to be disarmed and legislating to disarm others can benefit anyone. Thankfully, tough Israeli Jews have a totally different and realistic perspective clearly understanding the need for personal self defense, and the enemies of Israel understand that nations position on self defense as well. For more on personal defense Israel, click here.

Citizens Save Family From Burning Van

A woman from Tennessee lost control of her van and crashed into a tree.
Neighbors rushed to help -- some broke windows, others grabbed garden hoses…

…Neighbors and drivers were the first people on the scene. Almost immediately, they pulled a little girl from the burning minivan, but that was just the beginning. With the girl’s mother and brother trapped inside, two men banged at the van's window with metal pipes until it broke apart, freeing the mother. That's when two off-duty firefighters showed up and -- with a child still inside -- they rushed into the burning car. Despite the lack of protective clothes and the blistering heat, the men scrambled to free the child from a seatbelt.

As the fire grew, an off-duty Milwaukee Police lieutenant showed up with two fire extinguishers, and neighbors rushed in with garden hoses. Another 20 seconds passed and, just as it looked like the car was going to burn up, one of the firefighters freed the 4-year-old boy. He was badly burned, but alive, and was rushed away from the flames and sprayed down with cold water. Neighbors said they were amazed everyone survived. “I would do it for my kids, so that's why I stopped to get in there,” Lepkowski said. “I’m still shaken, you know, but I’ll never forget it.”


All the readers need to click on the link and read the rest of the story. Gun Shy believes that Mr Obama needs to fly these heroic Americans to the White House and give them the recognition they deserve publicly. If he can take the time to call Michael Jackson’s family, he should surely have time for these fine Americans.

What Else is Written in "the stones"?

I believe that this will be my last installment in examining the Obama administrations policy in relation to what was written on the Georgia Guidestones, which I discussed in earlier commentaries. Maybe it is just coincidence....who knows? Anyhow, these are the last two commandments that were not yet covered in my earlier commentaries found here, here, and here.

4. Rule passion - faith - tradition - and all things with tempered reason.

9. Prize truth - beauty - love - seeking harmony with the infinite.


If you remember from an earlier commentary that I posted, Alan Keyes questioned the validity of Mr Obama’s self professed Christian faith based on statements made in the New Testament that Mr Obama’s actions clearly went against. You can view Mr Keyes discussions here.

You may have also noted that in Mr Obama’ speech in Cairo, he quoted from the Koran (Islam), the Talmud (Judaism), and from the New Testament words of Jesus (Christianity). His speech reminded me of the co-exist bumper sticker that you see all of the new age people sporting on their vehicles. There seems to be many these days who are touting a blended one world religion.

Well, some Jews were watching and when they checked out his quote from the Talmud, it was found that he actually quoted only partially what is written in the passage. Here is a quote from a Talmudic Jewish blogger:

President Barack Obama cited the Talmud in his Cairo speech. Obama may be the first US president to cite the Talmud in a major international address. It was not a particularly deep, meaningful or well-known citation. It was a passage from Gittin 59b, that was tacked on to his speech at the end, along with miscellaneous quotes from other religious texts.

He said, The Holy Koran tells us, "O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another."

The Talmud tells us: "The whole of the Torah is for the purpose of promoting peace."

The Holy Bible tells us, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God."


Soncino translates the citation as: "But the whole of the Law is also for the purpose of promoting peace, as it is written, Her ways are ways of pleasantness and all her paths are peace?" (Prov. 3:17).

כל התורה כולה נמי מפני דרכי שלום היא דכתי׳ דרכיה דרכי נועם וכל נתיבותיה שלום

It looks like Obama obtained his quote from a quick google search.


Here is the view of the Israeli people in reference to Mr Obama’s speech. Watch as Rabbi Chaim Richman deciphers and debunks the Obamanese in that speech.

Obama Coundn't Make Chicago Area "Safe"...

but there are people who can and will.

Read this commentary and find out who they are and what they are doing.

Is it Written in "the stones"?

Let’s examine a few of the other commandments discussed in my earlier commentary found here.

5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.

6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.

7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.


Now let’s examine some more of Mr Obama’s actions, decisions, and appointments.

Obama Pushing International Gun Control Treaty CIFTA

We are all aware of Mr Obama circumventing second amendment rights in Chicago by supporting the banning of hand guns, which in turn took away the right to personal self defense by law abiding citizens in that city. He also endorsed the statewide Illinois handgun ban. One has to wonder if Mr Obama considers what is put forth in the constitution to be petty rights. By signing CIFTA into law, it would make the circumventing of the constitution even greater on an international level.

As I stated in an earlier commentary:

Obama’s beliefs and agendas should be judged not only on what he personally espouses, but also on the beliefs of the people he appoints to high positions of power in his administration.

Because of this we need to examine the Obama appointment of Harold Koh. What does Mr Koh believe? It is touched upon here.

We have some other Obama associates that we should also touch upon as a point of interest.

Here is some conspiritorial bonus video for your entertainment. Read and view everything, sift out the sensational, and you will always find that the truth lies somewhere in the center. This is because from PRAVDA to the New York Times (even though they look a lot alike these days) they all present pieces of the puzzle.

Thinning the Herd Through the Attrition of Obamacare

This is where Gun Shy goes pseudo conspiratorial, and has some fun doing it.

quote from this commentary:

Who benefits most from healthcare? The aging. With aging comes the diseases associated with higher healthcare costs. This is why Obama's first choice to oversee the process (before it was discovered he was knee-deep in a tax evasion scandal), former Senator Tom Dascle, stated in a book he authored that 'the elderly have a responsibility to die, knowing that they are not going to survive their chronic illnesses, so that society can save money and pump funds into caring for younger, more worthy recipients. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner mouthed these words as well. And make no mistake, this philosophy has been propounded for years by 'medical ethicists' and social engineers who wish to create a 'brave new world' where centralized government controls everything, including when you die.

I find this perspective to be interesting, in light of the fact that one of Mr Obama’s latest czars once espoused that he believed in forced abortions and a sort of eugenics program that gave me visions of the third reich. You can read about him here and here.

Obama’s beliefs and agendas should be judged not only on what he personally espouses, but also on the beliefs of the people he appoints to high positions of power in his administration.

There will always be conspiratorial allegations put forth, but that should not preclude them from being thoroughly examined anyway. Let me present to the readers some information that might be of interest, that I touched on in my earlier commentary found here.

THE MESSAGE OF THE GEORGIA GUIDESTONES

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature
2. Guide reproduction wisely - improving fitness and diversity
3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
4. Rule passion - faith - tradition - and all things with tempered reason.
5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
9. Prize truth - beauty - love - seeking harmony with the infinite.
10.Be not a cancer on the earth - Leave room for nature - Leave room for nature.


Now lets examine how some of the above commandments could be interpreted in light of decisions and appointments recently made by Mr Obama in reference to health care:

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature. (#1)

An inadequate socialized health care system where one has to wait extended periods before they can get treated could thin the herd quite rapidly.

2. Guide reproduction wisely - improving fitness and diversity. (#2)

Abortion, whether voluntary or forced is also a means of thinning the herd.

3. Balance personal rights with social duties. (#8)

Could the elderly who are suffering from long term illness be asked to give up their life as a social duty, because it is a burden on the collective society if they do not?

4. Be not a cancer on the earth - Leave room for nature - Leave room for nature. (#10)

How does one “leave room for nature”? Could this be another social duty where one's personal right to life may have to be given up for the collective good of humanity and mother earth?

I will examine the rest of the commandments in relation to the policies and practices of the current administration in my next conspiratorial installment.

Is Obamanese the New "Living" Language That Will Unite All Humanity?

It seems that many are speaking it these days. Listen to Ms Sotomayor give us her form of Obamanese when avoiding direct discussion about second amendment rights.

Gun Shy's reference to a new living language was found here in the third commandment. Read through all of the commandments found on the stones, because there will be a discussion about this in a future commentary. Here is some additional background.

It is a Good Thing That Mr Obama Made Chicago "Safe"...

I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see any more
To know that
I can read your mind, I can read your mind



Larry Summers cites Google search as progress

quote:

Of all the statistics pouring into the White House every day, top economic adviser Larry Summers highlighted one Friday to make his case that the economic free-fall has ended. The number of people searching for the term “economic depression” on Google is down to normal levels, Summers said.

Interesting. So now the current administration has access to Google stats? Does that mean while you are out searching topics, the White House can statistically track Americans search data? I wonder if they tracked how many people read this report? Shades of 1984. I guess when Mr Obama talked about "transparency", he meant yours, because it obviously hasn't been his.

Bonus question:

Who decides what normal levels are and how do they determine that?

A Recap For the Readers

This was sent to me by a reader. I had never seen it all laid out so succinctly:

Observations of the President's 1st Five Months

He has...

1. Offended the Queen of England.

2. Bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia.

3. Praised the Marxist Daniel Ortega.

4. Kissed Hugo Chavez on the cheek.

5. Endorsed the Socialist Evo Morales of Bolivia.

6. Announced we would meet with Iranians with no pre-conditions.

7. Gave away billions to AIG also without pre-conditions.

8. Expanded the bailouts.

9. Insulted everyone who has ever loved a Special Olympian.

10. Doubled our national debt.

11. Announced a termination of the space defense system the day after the North Koreans launched an ICBM.

12. Despite the urgings of his own CIA director and the prior 4 CIA directors, released information on intelligence gathering.

13. Accepted without public comment the fact that five of his cabinet members cheated on their taxes and two others withdrew after they couldn't take the heat.

14. Appointed a Homeland Security Chief who quickly identified as "dangers to the nation", groups including veterans of the military, and opponents to abortion on demand, and who ordered that the word "terrorism" no longer be used but instead referred to such acts as "man made disasters".

15. Circled the globe so he could openly apologize for America's greatness.

16. Told Mexicans the violence in their country was because of us.

17. Politicized the census by moving it into the White House from its Department of Commerce origins.

18. Appointed as Attorney General the man who orchestrated the forced removal and expulsion from America to Cuba of a nine-year old whose mother died trying to bring him to a life of freedom in the United States and approved the pardon of Marc Rich so Clinton could let the felon go free.

19. Salutes as heroes three Navy SEALS who took down three terrorists who threatened one American life and the next day announces members of the Bush administration will likely stand trial for "torturing" a terrorist, who had played a part in killing 3000 Americans, by pouring water up their nose.

20. Flew Air Force One over New York City causing panic at a cost of $400,000 to get a photo you can make with Photo Shop for less than a dollar.

21. Sent his National Defense Advisor to Europe to assure Europe that the US will no longer treat Israel in a special manner and they might be on their own with the Muslims.

22.Began the process of nationalizing the Auto Industry and the Insurance industry.

23 Announced that for intent and purposes the Health Insurance Industry will be nationalized.

24 Sided with Hugo Chavez instead of the Rule of Law as Honduras legally deposed Zelaya and installed Roberto Micheletti as President. It must be noted that the army did so following a lawful order of the Honduras Supreme Court.

And just think only 1360 days to go...if we have anything left.

Saved by a Gun....Again

Take a look at this.

O-Town Ranks High Again (Top Three)

Orlando Ranked Nation’s 3rd Meanest City To Homeless

quote:

ORLANDO -- A new study says the “City Beautiful” is actually the “city mean” regarding how it treats homeless people. The National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty ranked Orlando the third “meanest city” in the nation when it comes to what the group said was, essentially, making homelessness a crime.

7 Suspects In Custody In Slaying Of Florida Couple

As money gets tighter, you will see more low life like these coming out from under the rocks. Sadly, the two who orchestrated this heinous crime had military background, and one was still active duty as an Air Force staff sergeant attached to an elite special operations unit. They have become the enemies foreign and "domestic" instead of defending against them, which means they broke their oath. Gun Shy votes for public execution by military firing squad after conviction.

Democratic Professors and the Students Who Love Them

Gun Shy said in an earlier commentary, that a vast majority of college kids that I saw had Obama bumper stickers on their cars and were voting for him. How can this happen you ask?

Nearly all my professors are Democrats. Isn't that a problem?

quote:

After I posed that question, two faculty railed against me. That's a sure sign that universities should address the lack of ideological diversity.

Eugene, Ore. - When I began examining the political affiliation of faculty at the University of Oregon, the lone conservative professor I spoke with cautioned that I would "make a lot of people unhappy." Though I mostly brushed off his warning – assuming that academia would be interested in such discourse – I was careful to frame my research for a column for the school newspaper diplomatically...

Make sure you read the complete article, and you will understand how popular opinion is shifted in the halls of academia and in the student population as well.

Watch the video.

Lets think about this. The mayor allowed the tolls on all roads to be raised. Tolls are a form of taxes, therefore by proxy he already raised the taxes. Someone needs to call him on this.

Here is a quote from that document:

""Militia members most commonly associate with 3rd party political groups. It is not uncommon for militia members to display Constitutional Party, Campaign for Liberty or Libertarian material. These are usually supporters of Presidential Candidate Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr."

Orlando Gets Top Vacation Title In Forbes

quote:
ORLANDO - Can you name the number one vacation spot in the country? Look around. You're living in it! Forbes Traveler magazine says despite all of our economic troubles, Orlando remains the number one vacation spot in North America.

Riddle Me This…

Bill would let IOUs pay for Calif. taxes, fees

quote:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- State vendors and contractors could use their government-issued IOUs to pay state taxes, fees and liens under a bill approved by an Assembly committee.

The Business and Professions Committee unanimously passed the bill by Assemblyman Joel Anderson during its first legislative hearing Tuesday. The bill requires the state to accept its own IOUs as payment for money owed to the government.

Anderson, a Republican from La Mesa, says the measure would help businesses and others being paid with IOUs. The state began issuing the warrants last week as lawmakers struggle to close a $26.3 billion deficit.


Ok…so California is broke, and they are now issuing I.O.U.s because they have no money to pay their debts. Let’s take this to the next level and peer into the future. What would happen if California has to start issuing I.O.U.s to people in cities that are on public assistance, and the stores and landlords decide that they will not accept that as a method of payment for rent food and goods, because there is really nothing of value to back it up. I am not trying to be the prophet of doom here, but if that did occur, this could create the potential for an outbreak of unrest that in comparison would make the Rodney King riots look like a grade school picnic, not just in Los Angeles, but in other major cities across California as well.

A Little Blurb About Florida and the Right to Carry

You can find that complete article here.

quote:

RTC permit-holders are law-abiding: Florida has issued more carry permits than any state (1.5 million), but revoked only 166 (0.01 percent) due to gun crimes by permit-holders.

Background: Before 1987 there were 10 RTC states: (Ind. Me., N.H., N.D., S.D. and Wash. had "shall issue" laws. Ala. and Conn. had fairly-administered discretionary-issue systems. Georgia's "shall issue" law was interpreted as such in some jurisdictions. Vermont allowed carrying without a permit. In 1987, Florida enacted a "shall issue" law, and gun control supporters predicted "Wild West" shootouts would ensue. However, through 1992 Florida's murder rate decreased 23 percent, while the U.S. rate rose nine percent; thereafter, murder decreased nationally and in Florida. Then-Florida Licensing Division Director John Russi noted, "Florida's concealed weapon law has been very successful. All major law enforcement groups supported the original legislation....[S]ome of the opponents of concealed weapon legislation in 1987 now admit the program has not created the problems many predicted." In a 1995 letter to state officials, Dept. of Law Enforcement Commissioner James T. Moore wrote, "From a law enforcement perspective, the licensing process has not resulted in problems."

I Was Sent This a While Back

Thought I would re-post it:

Clint Smith, Director of Thunder Ranch, is part drill instructor, and part stand up comic. Here are a few of his observations. On tactics, firearms, self defence and life as we know it in the civilized world.

"The handgun would not be my choice of weapon if I knew I was Going to a fight....I'd choose a rifle, a shotgun, an RPG or an atomic Bomb instead."

"The two most important rules in a gunfight are: always cheat and always win."

"Every time I teach a class, I discover I don't know something."

"Don't forget, incoming fire has the right of way."

"Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets. I may get killed with my own gun, but he's gonna have to beat me to death with it, 'cause it's going to be empty."

"If you're not shootin', you should be loadin'. If you're not Loadin, you should be movin', if you're not movin', someone's gonna cut Your head off and put it on a stick."

"When you reload in low light encounters, don't put your
flashlight in your back pocket.. If you light yourself up, you'll look like an angel or the tooth fairy...and you're gonna be one of 'em pretty soon."

"Do something. It may be wrong, but do something."

"Nothing adds a little class to a sniper course like a babe in a ghilliesuit."

"Shoot what's available, as long as it's available, until something else becomes available."

"If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid. That's ridiculous.. If I have a gun, what in the hell do I have to be paranoid for."

"Don't shoot fast, shoot good."

"You can say 'stop' or 'alto' or use any other word you think will work but I've found that a large bore muzzle pointed at someone's head is pretty much the universal language."

"You have the rest of your life to solve your problems. How long you live depends on how well you do it."

"You cannot save the planet. You may be able to save yourself and your family."

"Thunder Ranch will be here as long as you'll have us or until someone makes us go away and either way it will be exciting."

More Excellent Gun Wisdom....... The purpose of fighting is to WIN. There is no possible victory in defence. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

1. Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

2. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

3. I carry a gun cause a cop is too heavy.

4. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.

5. A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was carrying and asked him 'Why do you carry a 45?' The Ranger responded, 'Because they don't make a 46.'

6. An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.

7. The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on his wearing his sidearm. 'Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you expecting trouble?' 'No ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have brought my rifle.'

8. Beware the man who only has one gun. He probably knows how to use it!

If you believe in the 2nd Amendment, please forward. 'The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.' -G. K. Chesterton

The 2009 Small Arms Survey reported that the Untied States alone was responsible for about half of the worldwide increase in legal international gun sales between 2000 and 2006. The U.S. now accounts for over half of the world's imports of pistols and revolvers and 45 percent of shotguns, it said…

…"No other country imports more than 4 percent of the global total," the 344-page report found.

So this is my warning to any rogue nation who thinks we can be easily had. Drop your paratroopers into the mountains of West Virginia or the Carolinas, or in the Adirondacks of Northern New York or the mountains of New Hampshire where the vehicle tag says "Live Free or Die", or in the back swamp areas of Louisiana or the Florida Glades, or in the vast areas out in the West or the rural areas of the Mid-West and see what happens. These are areas where people own many scoped rifles used to hunt and know how to use them very well (they also have numerous handguns and shotguns). At that time, any invading army will learn the hard lessons that the Russians learned when attempting to engage the mountain fighters of Afghanistan. If you announce that you only came to attack the anti gun liberals, many well armed American firearms enthusiasts might consider standing down for that because we would not want to ever go against their anti gun "Americans should not be armed and able to defend themselves" wishes.

A Little Gun Shy Pseudo Science

(click on photo to enlarge)

I wondered what would happen if the Obama supporters did this to protest something they disagreed with...like say firearms.. Would it make as much of a noticeable impact? It seems that I see a lot Obama stickers on the cars of college kids (who aren't employed yet) and quite a lot of people who appear to be on public assistance. For them, it just might be another day of not working anyways. I don't have any hard data to prove this. It is just what I have observed. Mileage may vary.

I made this unsubstantiated statement in an earlier commentary and then received the above picture in an e-mail. Since Gun Shy travels the major highways in the greater Orlando area during rush hour (I don't have an Obama sticker on my car), I am going to conduct a little survey of my own. I will count how many Obama bumper stickers I see on vehicles going to work in the morning and then average it against the number of vehicles that are traveling that route during my time on the highway. I know it is not hard science, but I am curious now, so I will make my best unbiased attempt and report it to the readers.

Federal "Street Cleaning"

Operation FALCON nets 35,190 fugitives in annual sweep

quote:

# Story Highlights
# U.S. marshals team with local law enforcement for annual sweep
# Nationwide operation apprehends 2,356 fugitive sex offenders, officials say
# Raids also net 433 murder suspects, 2,400 kilograms of narcotics
# In Cleveland, Ohio, officials arrest 1,211 people in 30 days


Gun Shy has a suggestion how to make these numbers even greater. They need to start investigating the actions of the politicians throughout the nation, and they may end up a few more on their arrest rosters. If they set up a special division to investigate those who have illegally circumvented the constitution, they might even find themselves removing some from high places.

A Musical Interlude...

Send in the Clowns is an interesting song. Please watch the video here.

This video that someone set to music ties in so nicely with my earlier commentaries where "clowns" are the theme:
