I hear this from a lot of Gun Control Advocates. I am a bit confused. What is to “believe”? That guns actually exist, like “I don’t believe in Fairies”? Or that anyone should possess them? Does this include Military personnel or Peace Officers? How about just the plain simple fact that these fanatics do not want Law abiding citizens to possess firearms? Any Firearms. But these same Fanatics cannot seem to admit that if this were the law of the land then criminals would run rampant, being the only ones that possessed firearms.
Until, that is, one of them is victimized. Here is such a story. Notice that the victim states “I don’t believe in guns” but acknowledges his Saviors:
Well, Obamacare is the law of the land. You have heard all the scare stories… right? Maybe not all of them.
For the first time in history, the government has attempted to force Americans to pay for the ending of human life – even if abortion violates their religious beliefs. We have heard about the fights on behalf of the employers (think Hobby Lobby) and rightly so. But do you know what it means to you, as an employee?
As an employee who is morally against abortion, you may now be forced into a health plan that violates your beliefs. Yes, and if you refuse coverage, you will be fined the greater of either the cost of the plan or 1% of your salary for the first year, 2% of your salary the second year, and 2.5% each year after that.
Plus, The Abortion Premium Mandate requires everyone that is enrolled in an ObamaCare-compliant plan in State Exchanges that include elective abortion coverage of any kind (surgical, chemical, late term, etc.) to pay a separate premium straight from their paychecks. . Now, ObamaCare says this separate premium will not cost less than $1 per month per enrollee, but it does not say how much more it could cost. And, because this premium is taken directly from a paycheck and put directly into an abortion-on-demand fund, bypassing the tax process, it attempts to circumvent federal laws that prohibit taxpayer funding of abortion.
Let us not forget the Secrecy Clause. While many of the ObamaCare-compliant insurance plans include this abortion charge, not all do. You think you can just shop around and find a plan that follows your beliefs? NOPE. Insurance companies are not allowed to tell you ahead of time which plans include this cost. It may “only” be disclosed in the fine print of the “summary of benefits and coverage explanation, at the time of enrollment.” (Remember: “You have to pass it to find out what’s in it”?) You can only discover whether or not your plan contains an abortion premium either by reading the fine print once you have enrolled, or if you happen to notice the separate surcharge on your pay stub.
And this does not even talk about what it does for Minors… your children. That is a whole different ball of wax. Children (defined as 0-26 years of age) will receive coverage of free contraception counseling and education, contraception, sterilization and early-abortion pills with NO requirement to inform parents of services. Remember, this includes children in Grammer School!
Now, of course, this is all for abortion. There is NO choice in ObamaCare for choosing to have a child, even for your children. While the law requires that children/dependents receive total coverage for contraception, abortion pills and sterilizations, it does not require that they receive any coverage for live birth.
So, there you go.
We have all seen the stupidity of the Main Stream Media of late, but the prize goes to the Journal News for publishing the Names & Addresses of residents holding Legally obtained Gun Permits. It compounded this atrocity with an interactive map for all of the criminals to use for identification of who’s home to burgle.
Make no mistake, this will be used by criminals. People are no longer safe in these counties!
Additionally, the Journal News is attempting to repeat these actions with more counties. Putnam county has refused to comply with the requests. Kudos to Putnam county! You have to admire them for recognizing the privacy violations of their residents and doing their best to protect them.
The Freedom of Information Act was never intended to abuse the legal rights of citizens. It was never intended to compromise the safety of anyone. The abuse of this process is getting wildly out-of-hand. The Journal News believes that in their quest to ban all handguns, they are doing a service to their cause. Guess what? They have Hired ARMED GUARDS to protect them from the backlash! They are doing what they are vilifying others for doing… protecting themselves!
Additional Kudos go to the blogger for publishing the names and addresses of those responsible for this mess. I can honestly say that I wish I had thought of it first. Give this man a pat on the back!
Gun Control for the safety of our society cannot come at the expense of the safety of our society. The Journal News needs to go. I hope they fold under the weight of the lawsuits that I believe should be filed against them. What they did was Anti-American.
Who is he kidding? He states “What I know in my conscience is 98 percent of the families in Wisconsin are not going to get hit with a massive tax increase.” He did not even read the bill before he signed it! He couldn’t have, no one had a chance to read it.
What about all of us Middle-Class that ARE getting hit with the tax increases? 77% of Americans are NOW dealing with increases that could break us. Between the tax hikes, Obamacare, and the rest, we are being sacrificed for Obama’s narcissistic ideology, and Paul Ryan is making excuses. We do not need more excuses! We need REAL leadership!
Yes, we need to deal with spending. We have been saying all along that the problem is in spending, not in revenue. But, do not tell us that you are happy with your vote when you didn’t even know what you were voting for! That is completely irresponsible!
We now have our ‘European Moment’ as we head down the path of Greece. Obama is as happy as a pig-in-slop, because he gets to do it again in 2 months. This is a Temporary fix! But, at least, Paul Ryan and his Obama-Kissing buddies are happy with what they have accomplished.
Boston Mayor Tom Menino has a promise from Joe Biden and he is spouting it to the world. Americans need to beware. We have been saying that Obama will go for your guns, and here is Good Ole Joe pledging that it will happen by the end of January.
Gun Control Advocates will rejoice, while the rest of America will put Smith & Wesson stock through the roof. We call on the House & Senate Republicans to double-down to stop this madness! Taking away the guns will only leave them to the criminals!
These Anti-Israel zealots are going way overboard. They believe that if they publish it in a textbook, it becomes fact. That simply is not true. I can publish a textbook labeling ‘Hogwarts” in the middle of New York City, and that does not make it fact.
They say this is an ‘Old Textbook”, but that really is no excuse. Old is actually 2003. Israel has been a recognized country since 1947, and God’s Chosen people for thousands of years before that.
These Socialist Extremists will never marginalize Israel no matter how hard they try!
Our elected officials are supposed to be representing ALL of the people, not just select few from their party. Here is an example of Socialism at it’s worst, not that Socialism has ANY Best side. New Hampshire 3rd District State Representative Democrat Cynthia Chase openly suggests crushing Freedom to run Conservatives out of the state. She wants to use her powers to legislate to “pass measures that will restrict” the freedoms of Granite State conservatives. Just the conservatives? I want to see how she is going to write that legislation!
The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways ,but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things.
We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete…
Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.
Remember, to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.
Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
If you don’t share this with anyone….Who cares?
‘Twas the night before liberal Christmas, and in the White House
President Obama was gloating about which liberties to douse;
Fifty-four trees decked with all due colors and pomp,
While Americans suffer, the Obama’s do romp;
The White House is festive, peddling sin and in vice,
Everyone’s drunk on their power, yes, even the mice.
They dance and they dine, with important people and such,
While the rest of us suffer through an economy that sucks.
The Obamaphone Lady, nestled all snug in her bed,
Dreams of more handouts that will pay for her bread,
And Hillary in her ‘kerchief, is happy you see,
She won’t have to answer question about Benghazi –
Out on my lawn, I heard such a clatter,
I sprang out of bed, to behold what’s the matter.
A gang of Obama voters where stealing my car,
Because to them I am rich, and they’re more worthy by far.
So I ran to my cabinet, and grabbed my Mossberg,
I filled it with rounds, and fired, and heard;
Complaints and screams the hoodlums did shout,
Wondering why I was racist – of that they had no doubt.
Up in Michigan, the unions are floored,
Thinking Obama’s new term meant they would get more.
But when confronted with the now enshrined right to work,
They rioted and broke things, generally acting like jerks.
“Socialism forever! Now give us our stuff!
“How dare you defy us! How dare you rebuff!”
They attacked those who opposed them, the press got it too,
How dare they document the chaotic liberal zoo!
Meanwhile Michelle is decked in the fanciest of clothes,
She walks around proud, to the sky points her nose;
Eat veggies she orders with a maniacal grin,
To not do so? It is such a sin.
Once more a slaughter in “gun free” school zone,
The lessons of liberal failure always hit home;
As parents mourn, their dead daughters and sons,
Obama screams gleefully, about taking our guns!
Secretly he’s happy, oh he most certainly is,
Don’t let him fool you, he doesn’t grieve for those kids;
They were just more worries, a drain on the State,
Sucking dry the coffers at some future date.
In January looms the so-called cliff that is fiscal,
Liberals defy reality, their protests oh so primal.
“Give us more taxes!” That is always their plan,
They want their free lunch, and down the road kick the can.
Harry and Nancy and Obama do bitch,
Holding America hostage, because they hate the “rich”.
But what can be done? They’ve shut all the doors.
Our leaders are nothing but pompous asses and whores.
Yes whores! You heard me! Was I not plain?
They’ve sold themselves for fortune, for power, and fame!
They don’t care about you! They don’t care about me!
“To Hell with you all!” That’s their slogan, you see?
Our children’s money Obama wants to spend and not save,
Worst of all? John Boehner seems willing to cave.
So the President proclaims, as he drifts off to sleep,
“Merry Liberal Christmas to all! Now Get ready to leap!”
‘Twas the night before Christmas and Santa’s a wreck…
How to live in a world that’s politically correct?
His workers no longer would answer to “Elves”,
“Vertically Challenged” they were calling themselves.
And labor conditions at the north pole
Were alleged by the union to stifle the soul.
Four reindeer had vanished, without much propriety,
Released to the wilds by the Humane Society.
And equal employment had made it quite clear
That Santa had better not use just reindeer.
So Dancer and Donner, Comet and Cupid,
Were replaced with 4 pigs, and you know that looked stupid!?
The runners had been removed from his sleigh;
The ruts were termed dangerous by the E.P.A.
And people had started to call for the cops
When they heard sled noises on their roof-tops.
Second-hand smoke from his pipe had his workers quite frightened.
His fur trimmed red suit was called “Unenlightened.”
And to show you the strangeness of life’s ebbs and flows:
Rudolf was suing over unauthorized use of his nose
And had gone on Geraldo, in front of the nation,
Demanding millions in over-due compensation.
So, half of the reindeer were gone; and his wife,
Who suddenly said she’d enough of this life,
Joined a self-help group, packed, and left in a whiz,
Demanding from now on her title was Ms.
And as for the gifts, why, he’d ne’er had a notion
That making a choice could cause so much commotion.
Nothing of leather, nothing of fur,
Which meant nothing for him. And nothing for her.
Nothing that might be construed to pollute.
Nothing to aim. Nothing to shoot.
Nothing that clamored or made lots of noise.
Nothing for just girls. Or just for the boys.
Nothing that claimed to be gender specific.
Nothing that’s warlike or non-pacific.
No candy or sweets…they were bad for the tooth.
Nothing that seemed to embellish a truth.
And fairy tales, while not yet forbidden,
Were like Ken and Barbie, better off hidden.
For they raised the hackles of those psychological
Who claimed the only good gift was one ecological.
No baseball, no football…someone could get hurt;
Besides, playing sports exposed kids to dirt.
Dolls were said to be sexist, and should be passe;
And Nintendo would rot your entire brain away.
So Santa just stood there, disheveled, perplexed;
He just could not figure out what to do next.
He tried to be merry, tried to be gay,
But you’ve got to be careful with that word today.
His sack was quite empty, limp to the ground;
Nothing fully acceptable was to be found.
Something special was needed, a gift that he might
Give to all without angering the left or the right.
A gift that would satisfy, with no indecision,
Each group of people, every religion;
Every ethnicity, every hue,
Everyone, everywhere…even you.
So here is that gift, it’s price beyond worth…
“May you and your loved ones enjoy peace on earth.”
