As The Veterans Administration Or ANYTHING Goes The Way Of Liberalism, It Goes Down The Toilet

March 12, 2015

I am a service-connected disabled veteran and use the Veterans Administration as my primary source of health care.

For the most part, the VA has done me well.  I have mostly had excellent physicians and health care professionals attending to me.  And I have been grateful to the VA for the care I have received.

But I have also been watching my level of care deteriorate.

And it is deteriorating because of liberalism.

This week is a marvelous example.

As a service-connected veteran with injuries to both knees and both shoulders, I have a significant level of pain to deal with.  I am prescribed oxycodone for my pain.  And of course that is a Schedule II drug that requires extra-level monitoring.

I have never ONCE been convicted for any kind of substance abuse.  I have never ONCE been arrested for any kind of substance abuse.  I have never ONCE ever even been ACCUSED of any kind of substance abuse.

But, you know, some people have abused their oxycodone.

So let’s treat EVERYONE like a drug abuser.

I got a phone call this week and was commanded to submit a urine sample for a drug test within two weeks of receiving the call.  I’m going in today and I am pissed off about it.

Oh, if I were a welfare-sucking parasite, I wouldn’t have to submit to a drug test.  I mean, they tried to do that in one state and the unholy rabid frothing-at-the-mouth fury on the part of liberals squashed that pretty fast.  I mean, how DARE you insinuate that people might not be getting jobs because they’re abusing drugs, you RACIST!

But it’s perfectly okay to accuse us veterans who fought for your right to be a depraved jackass of being a drug abuser, isn’t it, Democrat?

Thanks to Führer Obama, I get to deal with that insinuation about four times a year.   I was tested in November.  The fact that there wasn’t so much as a trace of a contraband cream puff in my system doesn’t absolve me.  Because where Democrats are involved, the last thing that matters is “facts.”

But I’m not done.

I just had shoulder surgery for my left shoulder.  And I’ve been having physical therapy on a schedule of three times a week, followed by two times a week, followed by three times a week, followed by two times a week, etc.  Well, I had a setback when I strained myself.  The physical therapist and the surgeon saw me and told me I needed to miss about a week plus and heal up.

So I just came back, and during that week plus I’d missed, the physical therapy department changed their scheduling policy.  You see, some veterans aren’t showing up for their appointments, and it cost the system money when people don’t show up for their appointments and leave medical professionals twiddling their thumbs when they could be treating patients.

So does the VA go after the patients who aren’t showing up for their appointments?  Of course not.  That would make as much sense as going after the actual MUSLIMS who are doing all the actual TERRORISM.  So instead, they have to treat EVERYONE like a terrorist, or in this case an appointment-abusing no-shower.

It doesn’t matter that I have NEVER missed a VA appointment in my entire life.

Now I have to get ONE appointment per visit.  The therapist has to spend one-fifth of each appointment writing the paperwork so I can get my next appointment.  And now suddenly I can’t GET two or three appointments a week anymore; nope, I’m lucky to get ONE.  And my recovery is going to suffer as a result.

So because Democrats are running the bureaucracies, we ALL get treated like terrorists.  Whether we’re 95 year-old nuns in our walkers slowly making our way through the airport or service-connected veterans who never once missed an appointment (or abused drugs).  We ALL get treated like terrorists who did something wrong by these power-grabbing dictators.

What is liberalism?  Liberalism is the belief that everybody is “good” while society is “evil” and must be reformed and then “fundamentally transformed,” and so on the one hand they refuse to hold perpetrators responsible for their crimes or their behavior because it’s SOCIETY that is to blame, right?  So we ALL get treated like farm animals while your Hillary Clintons are running around exempting themselves from the laws and regulations and policies that they impose on everybody else.

It would make sense to single out the abusers – whether the drug abusers or the appointment abusers – but Democrats are vile, wicked, depraved people who won’t be held accountable and won’t allow anyone else to be held accountable.  And add to that that Democrats are fascists who want to have total dictatorial control of every system of government.  And you get the perfect storm of me having my health care ruined because the system won’t hold the people who are screwing up accountable for being the ones who are actually screwing up.

Especially if they’re welfare-sucking parasites, for the record.

It’s the same thing with guns, and that’s going on right now, too.  Obama just tried to do one of his innumerable end-runs around the Constitution by banning ammunition for certain types of guns he doesn’t like.  It doesn’t matter if we have a right to those guns because Obama is a fascist and we have the rights Obama says we have and we’re racist if we think we have the rights the Constitution says we have.  In California and other states, Democrats are releasing criminals from prison at a record rate much the way Obama has released terrorists from Gitmo at a record rate (because the fact that I should be treated like a terrorist in any airport in America doesn’t apparently mean that actual TERRORISTS should be treated like terrorist, right?).  And this goes back decades, when during the 1960s Democrats declared that it was wrong to commit crazy people against their will and that the nutjobs who voted Democrat had RIGHTS, dammit.  And so Democrats made it impossible to deal with mentally ill people in America.

And now they demand that we ALL be treated like criminals and nutjobs as a result, and that we ALL have our right to keep and bear arms stripped away from us.

“Democrat” stands for “DEpraved deMOnic bureauCRAT.”  And they have “fundamentally transformed the United States of America” into something truly pathetic and truly despicable.

Now, excuse me.  I’ve got to go pee in a cup.  I’d have a Democrat take the test for me, but you know I’d fail my drug test given the fact that these same hypocrite liberals who are making me take this damn drug test are trying to get the very drugs that I’m being tested for legalized in state after state.

Especially if they’re welfare sucking parasites.

Democrats Have Already Largely Seized Your Rights With Their Twisted, Hypocritical Rationales

March 24, 2014

If you want to know the point of this article in a nutshell it is this: liberals LOVE to call conservatives “fascists” because they are shameless liars.  The truth is brutally simple: fascism is impossible in any society where there is an armed citizenry free to resist it.  Fascism becomes inevitable ONLY when the wicked get their way and abolish the people’s ability to resist fascism.  And if you want to understand where liberals got their trick, turn in your Bible to the place where Jesus’ enemies accused Him of getting His power from Satan rather than from God.  The liberals tactic is as old as the devil.  Did Hitler want an armed people capable of resisting his small, limited government or did Hitler want a giant all-powerful State ruling supreme over a disarmed people?  The founding fathers made the armed people the champions and the government that wanted to take away their arms the oppressor; liberals twist it around to make the government that wants to disarm the people the champion and the armed people the oppressor.

We’re rapidly heading for a truly fascist America, and the people who are taking us there are doing so by twisted, hypocritical rhetoric.

Let me give you some examples.

Blackstone’s formulation put it this way:

It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer

TalkLeft found this quote regarding the fundamental presumption of innocence of an American citizen in our system:

“The principle that there is a presumption of innocence in favor of the accused is the undoubted law, axiomatic and elementary, and its enforcement lies at the foundation of the administration of our criminal law

Okay.  That’s been the principle around which the liberal ACLU has represented pure, unadulterated scumbags.  Liberals LOVE enabling crime and thereby undermining society by wrapping themselves in a sacred principle only to pervert that principle.

But let’s see if these same liberals are consistent when we attempt to apply this reasoning to another fundamental constitutional principle, such as the 2nd Amendment: “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.  That’s the guarantee.  It’s better that ten people with nefarious intent get guns in their hands than that one innocent American lose his right to keep and bear arms in a free nation.

Now, I’ve never been convicted of a single crime.  In fact, I’ve never even been CHARGED or ACCUSED OF committing a single crime.  But when it comes to my ability to actually exercise my constitutionally-guaranteed right to keep and bear arms, well, let’s just throw that “presumption of innocence” liberals claim to love out the window.  Because there AINT any.  I am presumed to be a potential mass-murdering psychopath who needs to have my rights stripped away for the good of the people.  The presumption of guilt is mine.  And liberals will not even LET me prove my innocence.

It’s the Constitution that liberals ultimately presume is truly guilty.  And where the Nazis failed trying to destroy it from outside, fascist liberals have largely succeeded by destroying it from within.

A rape victim – after literally being berated by a Democrat for her audacity in thinking she should have a right to protect herself with a gun – put it this way:

“How does rendering me defenseless protect you against a violent crime?”

For all their “war on women” bullcrap, Democrats presume women who have been violently raped to be guilty and to be unworthy of having one of the most central rights that the U.S. Constitution guaranteed: the right to keep and bear arms, to defend yourself and your property, without being infringed upon by the State.

The very last thing the Democrat Party wants is for a woman who is about to be raped shoot her would-be rapist.  They would MUCH prefer that she be raped and then become a whiny pathetic victim demanding that other women be raped by taking away their rights to defend themselves and prevent their rapes.

The Democrat Party IS the party of fascism.  They’ll talk about people’s “rights” to take sodomy up their rear ends and to murder their babies and to be a welfare parasite for life.  But they don’t give one flying DAMN about your actual rights guaranteed by the Constitution such as your gun rights and your religious freedom.  Far from it.  They want to take your actual constitutional rights away and give you their sodomy rights right up your ass whether you like it or not.

When you read the writings of the founding fathers, there is absolutely no question in the mind of anyone with the IQ of at least a ripe tomato that they intended the 2nd Amendment to be the people’s protection against government tyranny.  And you demon-possessed liberals read those quotes from our founding fathers and try to argue that they were on the side of those who wanted to take guns away from the American people.

But Democrats have been insidiously usurping our rights to have guns in every way imaginable.  Most of us have no idea how Democrats have already largely taken away your gun rights.

Here’s another example: wind turbines kill about 40 million birds including endangered birds – every year.  Democrats don’t mind that one bit; it’s the small price of their insane “green” hatred of fossil fuels – and they frankly don’t care how many human beings they hurt with high energy prices any more than they give a damn about the millions of birds they kill.  But when a few birds die because they ate a carcass that had been killed with a lead bullet, well, we just have to take away your right to use bullets, don’t we???  It doesn’t matter how expensive it is or how hard it is to get the bullets they allow you to have.  The harder and the more expensive it is, in fact, the better.

I used to reload ammunition to cut down on costs.  I have a press and a number of dies to reload various cartridges.  They are nearly useless now, thanks to Democrats following the pattern of the Nazis to strip away guns and the ability to actually use them.

In order to buy just four ounces of gun powder (not very much, I assure you!) I have to fill out a form with the ATF in Democrat-owned California.  I have to state why I need gun powder and describe which guns I need gun powder for.  And then I have to wait for (at least!) twenty days.  And I have to do that every single time rather than just once and have my paperwork on file.

That’s a giant roadblock.  But there’s another, even bigger problem: I can’t even GET primers any more (see here too).  You just can’t buy them.  Anywhere.

And if you don’t reload, not only has your ammunition gone up massively in price, but try to even find it.  It’s like ObamaCare where you pay more and more to get less and less.  And I’m not talking about “dangerous” handgun or assault weapon ammunition: I’m talking about stuff like .22 plinking ammunition or – because Democrats have assured me that they’re not trying to take away my right to hunt – 30/30 Winchester (which has taken down more deer than any cartridge in America) ammunition.

Go to a store and try to buy it.  Good luck.  Hunting ammunition.  Again, even .22 ammo!  Democrats have so regulated it and so undermined ammunition in so many ways that you just can’t get it.  I spent six months in vain trying to buy 30/30 ammo at Wal-Mart and finally managed to snag three boxes.  As I was leaving, a guy went to the counter and asked if there was any 30/30 ammo.  And I heard the clerk say that guy just bought the last one.  And every single time I’d been in Wal-Mart for the previous six plus months I’d gone to that ammo shelf and looked for it in vain.

It’s not that you can’t buy it.  It’s just that it’s ALWAYSout of stock” in Obama’s God damn America.  Which is another way of saying “you can’t buy it.”  Not in Obama’s God damn America.

Democrats’ hypocrisy is simply stunning.

Fascists are always hypocrites.  The two go together hand in steel government gauntlet.

In effect Democrats are saying, “You have a right to your gun – as long as your gun is nothing more than a paper weight.  At least until we can take your paper weight gun away from you, too.”

Think about that logic: if I take away your cell phone carrier but allow you to keep your phone knowing full damn well your phone is USELESS, have I not taken away your cell phone???  You’re damn right I took it away when your phone is nothing more than a paper weight like people’s guns are these days.

Again, where’s my damn presumption of innocence that ought to allow me to exercise my constitutional rights in peace, you know, without being “infringed.”  Democrat fascists took it away from me.

To be a Democrat is to be a DEMOn-possessed bureauCRAT, I keep saying.  And here’s your hypocrite-without-shame-without-honor-without-decency-without-integrity-without-honesty-and-without-virtue-of-any-kind alert: let’s consider another example of Democrats blatantly contradicting themselves by their own twisted rationales with the right to vote.

Democrats tell me that to require ANY form of ID or ANY limitation whatsoever that would restrict people from voting such that only people who are lawfully registered to vote can vote ONCE is somehow a violation of the Constitution.  They tell me that ANY RESTRICTION AT ALL is a barrier to people’s constitutional rights.  You can’t ask for ID; that would be immoral.  You can’t require a voter ID card that has any cost to it even if you have subsidize the price of the card for the poor; that would be evil.

Apply that to my constitutional right to keep and bear my arms and try to stop laughing at the massive hypocrisy.   In order for me to even have a CHANCE at exercising my constitutional right to keep and bear arms, I have to pass so many ID checks I feel like Big Brother lives with me and then I have to pay right out my ass for the privilege of his constant companionship.

The right to vote is actually a dangerous thing: the NAZI Party was ELECTED.  You get more death and more evil electing evil leaders than you will EVER get with people being allowed to defend themselves.  The communists murdered more than 100 million people in peacetime.  The Democrats have so far murdered more than 55 million innocent babies by applying the same moral “logic” that the Nazis used to murder Jews and the Democrats leading up to the Civil War used to enslave blacks (they’re not really “human” so we can do what we like with them).

Do you know why Democrats cited that principle about preferring the guilty to go free rather than have one innocent person punished by the system?  It wasn’t that they give one flying damn about protecting the rights of the innocent – far from it as I have just PROVED.  It was rather that they wanted to create a crisis so they could “Never let a crisis go to waste.”  They wanted to deliberately destabilize the system (see here and here for examples).  They wanted to inflict America with millions of guilty people who would turn the nation upside down so that they could exploit the chaos and unrest created by the guilty to seize more and more power for their beloved fascist State.  In the same way that they want to inflict millions of illegal immigrants on America to overwhelm our system, to inflict millions of welfare parasites on our social support system, to inflict millions of sick people who won’t pay for their health care on our health system.  That’s all they wanted.  It was like ObamaCare: they wanted “to control the people.” Period.  Or to put it in Obama’s dishonest terms when he promised that you could keep your health plan and/or your doctor, “I guarantee it.”  “Period.  End of story.”

It takes integrity to be consistent.  And Democrats just don’t have any of either.

So they’ll implement their fascism in one area with one rationale.  And then they’ll implement their fascism in another area with a different rationale that blatantly contradicts the first rationale.  And they’ll do it over and over and over again until they have all the power and all the guns and the people have no power and no guns to resist them.  Because that’s who they are.

Democrats have been building toward a plan and a purpose for decades now: they want the Antichrist and the Mark of the Beast and they won’t be satisfied until they get the Antichrist and the Mark of the Beast.  They want a big-government liar who will literally be worshipped and they want a fascist State that is so powerful that it can literally take over complete control of all purchases such that no man or woman can buy ANYTHING unless that person has been approved by the State.

We may win in 2014.  I hope – but doubt – that we may actually get our way in the next presidential election as the sheer horror of the Democrat’s fascism begins to be felt (at least the parts that Obama hasn’t waived and waived again to try to cynically protect Democrats from the consequences of their policies on millions of Americans as they lose their health care, get dumped into inferior ObamaCare, and pay huge premiums and suffer amazingly high deductibles for the privilege.  But the same Bible that doesn’t mention America in prophecy because we’ve economically and militarily and politically imploded due to Obama’s incompetent fascism also assures us that the beast is coming and Democrats will deliriously cheer him and receive his mark.  They will ultimately get their way – and they will burn in hell for it.

And thanks to Democrats, you won’t have any guns or ammunition to protect yourself from his tyranny with when he comes.

Democrats In Congress Show Their Contempt For Troops, Steal Their Money

October 16, 2009

Never think you’ve plumbed the depths of how depraved Democrats are:

U.S. troop funds diverted to pet projects

By Shaun Waterman THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Senators diverted $2.6 billion in funds in a defense spending bill to pet projects largely at the expense of accounts that pay for fuel, ammunition and training for U.S. troops, including those fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to an analysis.

Among the 778 such projects, known as earmarks, packed into the bill: $25 million for a new World War II museum at the University of New Orleans and $20 million to launch an educational institute named after the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Massachusetts Democrat.

While earmarks are hardly new in Washington, “in 30 years on Capitol Hill, I never saw Congress mangle the defense budget as badly as this year,” said Winslow Wheeler, a former Senate staffer who worked on defense funding and oversight for both Republicans and Democrats. He is now a senior fellow at the Center for Defense Information, an independent research organization.

Sen. Tom Coburn, Oklahoma Republican, called the transfer of funds from Pentagon operations and maintenance “a disgrace.”

Taking operational funds from our soldiers in time of war is vastly more than a “disgrace.”

Fuel?  Ammunition? Bah!  Let the soldiers – who are warmongers by definition – die at the hands of terrorists while trapped weaponless in their foxholes.  Pork for Democrat re-election campaigns, that’s what’s really needed.

Guns, Ammo, And The Only Jobs Being Created By Obama’s Politics Of Fear

May 21, 2009

People are stockpiling guns and ammunition in a way that no one has ever seen in this country.  And it’s not just conservative rightwing extremists who are bitterly clinging to their guns and religion and racist antipathies as Obama earlier mentioned, either; it’s ordinary people.  Even liberal Democrats are buying guns.

A CNN story puts it this way:

AURORA, Colorado (CNN) — Gun shops across the country are reporting a run on ammunition, a phenomenon apparently driven by fear that the Obama administration will increase taxes on bullets or enact new gun-control measures.

“Driven by fear.”  That’s probably the best way to put it.

Obama talked about “hope” during his demagogic run for the White House.  But a lot of Americans are now finding cause to be very afraid of what Obama hopes for.

I see Obama saying he has no intention of running the auto industry while he fires CEOs, picks boards of directors, converts to common shares of stock so his administration can have an inside presence to change company policies, dictates the advertising budget of an auto company, threatens hedge funds that owned secured debt in auto companies, and changes bankruptcy proceedings to favor politically connected unions.  If that’s what NOT wanting to run the auto industry looks like, I’d sure be terrified to see what Obama would do if he really wanted to run them.  And he’s doing even more to impose his will on the banking and finance industries.

I see such naked displays of fascism, and I am driven by fear.

The Obama administration uses the Department of Homeland Security to contact every police agency in the nation to inform them that returning combat veterans, pro-lifers, and opponents of illegal immigration are not citizens who can be trusted, but should be categorized as “rightwing extremists.”

I see such clearly ideological-driven partisan political branding, and I am driven by fear.

Barack Obama and key members of his administration have repeatedly demagogued guns and the U.S. gun industry by falsely claiming that “90 percent of the guns going into Mexico come from the United Stats.”  If this isn’t demagoguery and propaganda, what is it?

I see such demagogic and dishonest behavior coming out of an administration, and I am driven by fear.

And so we see movements by states to say, “We shouldn’t have to be afraid of our own federal government.”  We see unprecedented movements of states to assert their rights under the 10th Amendment.  And so Montana passes an in-your-face gun law intended to directly challenge the Obama administration.  Utah and Texas began to follow with their own versions of a firearms freedom act.  And the floodgates are opening, as Minnesota and South Carolina are also entering the revolt.  And numerous states are beginning to sponsor state sovereignty resolutions.

States, too, are clearly being driven by fear.

Obama could largely end this fear by simply clearly stating what his until-now twisted and contradictory stance on guns actually is.  The fact that he will not do so only stimulates MORE being driven by fear.

Well, there’s a single good thing coming out of Obama’s politics of fear.  To cite Vice President Joe Biden, all of Obama’s fearmongering is creating “a three letter word”: “J-O-B-S.” In the gun and ammunition industry.

The Obama administration has to make up numbers to justify how its stimulus program has failed.  They have to ignore the 2.6 million jobs they’ve lost and point to 150,000 jobs they can’t show they’ve created.

I think Obama is looking in the wrong place for his “jobs.”  He should point to the jobs in the gun and ammunition industry that he has inspired.

There’s no question that these industries owe their success to Obama and the fear he has created in millions of American hearts and minds.  Obama should take credit for it.

More stockpiling ammunition: Fear of potential Obama laws causing mass sales
By PERRY BACKUS Ravalli Republic

FLORENCE – Every day, Darren Newsom’s three Bitterroot Valley Ammunition facilities crank out 300,000 rounds of ammunition.

It’s not nearly enough.

“I’m going about 100,000 rounds in the wrong direction every day,” Newsom said. “We probably have about six months of back orders right now.”

Newsom has been in the ammunition manufacturing business for more than 20 years and he’s never seen demand this high.

Fearful of the Obama administration’s potential to tighten gun control laws, people from all over the country are stocking up on guns and ammunition.

“I went through the Clinton years and there was a bit of a scare then,” Newsom said. “This is like the Clinton years on steroids.  On the day of the election, our phones started going nuts. It hasn’t stopped since.”

As a master distributor for ATK – the world’s largest ammunition business – Bitterroot Valley Ammunition supplies other ammunition manufacturers around the country with the components needed to make bullets.

“I get a million primers in every other day and most are shipped out the very next day,” he said. “I have 100 million primers on back order right now. We just can’t get enough of them.”

At a recent gun show in Salt Lake City, Newsom sold somewhere between 300,000 and 400,000 rounds in the first two hours.

“It’s just unreal,” he said. “Somewhere in lots of basements around the country, there are millions of rounds of ammunition being stored.”

Local businesses have felt the ammunition shortage.

At Bob Ward’s in Hamilton, Mike Matteson said there has been quite a run on ammunition and reloading supplies like bullets and powder since the election.

“We are especially low right now with pistol ammunition,” Matteson said. “There are four or five calibers that we don’t even have on our shelves.”

Matteson said he didn’t believe manufacturers were prepared for the panic buying that’s occurred since the election.

“They tell us that they’re months behind on some calibers – .22 ammo is really tough to come by,” he said. “Our gun sales are up somewhere between 30 (percent) to 35 percent or better. A good percentage of those sales are pistols.”

Firearm and ammo sales aren’t the only place where concerns about gun control are cropping up.

Ravalli County Sheriff Chris Hoffman has seen a marked increase in the number of people applying for concealed weapons permits since November.

Montana is a “will-issue” state for concealed weapons permits. Any law-abiding citizen who fills out the application and can show they’ve completed some form of firearm safety course can obtain a permit.

The county is averaging about 38 requests for renewals or new permits a month. Last year, the requests averaged about 25.

“It’s definitely a noticeable increase,” Hoffman said.

The sheriff said he’s hearing from people who are concerned about what might happen over the next four years with the gun control issue.

“We are being asked what would be the stance of local law enforcement if the federal government calls for the confiscation of firearms,” Hoffman said. “That’s a very real concern for people.”

Gary Marbut, the longtime president of the Montana Shooting Sports Association in Missoula, said the seeds of the current ammunition shortage can be traced back almost a decade to the Y2K scare.

“Many people became concerned about their ability to get ammunition back then and they stocked up quite a bit,” Marbut said.

In the intervening years, China blossomed and bought up world copper supplies. Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan used up warehouses full of U.S. ammunition that needed to be replenished. That forced higher prices for civilian ammunition and people started using some of the bullets they had squirreled away after Y2K, Marbut said.

And now, with the current economic and political uncertainty, people are looking to restock their supplies at a time when most ammunition manufacturers aren’t willing to expand their operations.

“The whole demand side of this is so flexible and the supply side is not,” he said.

The ammunition shortage is creating a bit of an economic boon for Ravalli County.

Newsom plans to open a fourth manufacturing facility in Stevensville sometime in September. He employs about 50 people right now and could add up to another 100.

“There are a lot of people out of work right now,” he said. “Two years ago, I probably couldn’t find 10 people to go to work for us. Now I have 10 people a day coming in here looking for a job.”

Newsom believes the need for ammunition won’t go away. This scare is creating a whole new group of ammunition customers for the future, he said.

Need proof?

Take the .380 caliber pistol. A year ago, Newsom said there was hardly a demand for the ammunition. Since then, the .380 auto pistol has become very popular with women.

“One year ago, it wasn’t in demand and now it’s some of the most sought ammunition in the U.S.,” he said. “There are more people getting into shooting and that’s one thing about ammunition – you can only shoot it once.”

People need to understand that the Obamamania fear that is creating such an incredibly high demand for guns and ammunition is not merely fear of Obama gun laws; it is fear of the future that Obama’s out-of-control spending will have on our economy.

We may very well have a short-term recovery (which is what happened during the Great Depression following the stock market crash of Black Friday in October 1929); but that recovery will be devoured by the sheer massive weight of trillions and trillions of dollars in debt.  Obama will spend $9.3 trillion and nearly DOUBLE the national debt.  The administration has spent, loaned, or committed more than $12.8 trillion .  This year Obama is spending more than four times as much as George Bush did in 2008.  Obama is creating more debt than every single president from George Washington to George W. Bush – COMBINED.  And the Congressional Budget Office says that by 2019 a whopping 82 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP) will be going to pay down the national debt.

That mind-boggling spending and that mind-boggling debt is a disaster weighting to happen.  It is only a matter of time before a ten trillion ton anvil falls on the American economy.

Trends Research Institute CEO Gerald Celente is on record predicting food riots by 2012 as massive spending creates massive inflation and devaluing of the currency.  If Celente is a nutjob, he is a nutjob that CNN, The Economist, USA Today, CNBC, The Wall Street Journal, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The New York Times, CBS News, The Detroit News, the Chicago Tribune, The Los Angeles Times, and the New York Post have all gone on public record to praise for his incredible predictive accuracy.

People are scared, and judging by the continuing massive purchases of people stockpiling guns and ammo, they’re not clearly not getting any less scared.

So you get your gun.  And lock and load.  Because the beast is coming.

Obama Backlash Beginning: Montana Defies Administration With In-Your-Face Gun Law

May 7, 2009

The state of Montana has drawn a line in the sand by passing a new gun law that virtually thumbs its nose at the federal government’s encroachment on state and individual rights.  If the tea parties were the first shot across the bow of liberal fascism, this is surely the second – and it’s being done with heavy artillery.

Liberals have been employing “sanctuary cities” across the nation that flouted federal immigration laws.  Now conservatives are taking that same idea to have “sanctuary states” to protect their citizens’ 2nd Amendment rights against liberal tyranny.  And Montana, Utah, and Texas are leading the nation in standing up to the federal government’s unconstitutional laws in direct violation of states’ rights.

Montana Governor Brian D. Schweitzer, for what it’s worth, is a Democrat.

Montana fires a warning shot over states’ rights
State is trying to trigger a battle over gun control — and make a point

updated 4:54 p.m. ET April 29, 2009

HELENA, Mont. – Montana is trying to trigger a battle over gun control — and perhaps make a larger point about what many folks in this ruggedly independent state regard as a meddlesome federal government.

In a bill passed by the Legislature earlier this month, the state is asserting that guns manufactured in Montana and sold in Montana to people who intend to keep their weapons in Montana are exempt from federal gun registration, background check and dealer-licensing rules because no state lines are crossed.

That notion is all but certain to be tested in court.

The immediate effect of the law could be limited, since Montana is home to just a few specialty gun makers, known for high-end hunting rifles and replicas of Old West weapons, and because their out-of-state sales would automatically trigger federal control.

Legal showdown
Still, much bigger prey lies in Montana’s sights: a legal showdown over how far the federal government’s regulatory authority extends.

“It’s a gun bill, but it’s another way of demonstrating the sovereignty of the state of Montana,” said Democratic Gov. Brian Schweitzer, who signed the bill.

Carrie DiPirro, a spokeswoman for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, had no comment on the legislation. But the federal government has generally argued that it has authority under the interstate commerce clause of the U.S. Constitution to regulate guns because they can so easily be transported across state lines.

Guns and states’ rights both play well in Montana, the birthplace of the right-wing Freemen militia and a participant in the Sagebrush Rebellion of the 1970s and ’80s, during which Western states clashed with Washington over grazing and mineral extraction on federal land.

Montana’s leading gun rights organization, more hardcore than the National Rifle Association, boasts it has moved 50 bills through the Legislature over the past 25 years. And lawmakers in the Big Sky State have rebelled against federal control of everything from wetland protection to the national Real ID system.

‘Made in Montana’
Under the new law, guns intended only for Montana would be stamped “Made in Montana.” The drafters of the law hope to set off a legal battle with a simple Montana-made youth-model single-shot, bolt-action .22 rifle. They plan to find a “squeaky clean” Montanan who wants to send a note to the ATF threatening to build and sell about 20 such rifles without federal dealership licensing.

If the ATF tells them it’s illegal, they will sue and take the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, if they can.

Similar measures have also been introduced in Texas and Alaska.

“I think states have got to stand up or else most of their rights are going to be buffaloed by the administration and by Congress,” said Texas state Rep. Leo Berman.

Critics say exempting guns from federal laws anywhere would undermine efforts to stem gun violence everywhere.

Hot Air has the text of the law, titled:

AN ACT EXEMPTING FROM FEDERAL REGULATION UNDER THE COMMERCE CLAUSE OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES A FIREARM, A FIREARM ACCESSORY, OR AMMUNITION MANUFACTURED AND RETAINED IN MONTANA; AND PROVIDING AN APPLICABILITY DATE. BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MONTANA:

This is defiance as a thing of art:

It is a determination to keep fighting for one’s freedom no matter how hopeless things might look:

And why is this level of defiance necessary? An image worth a thousand curses suffices by way of explanation:

Don’t think this isn’t a direct response to Barack Hussein.

Gun and ammunition sales have soared out of naked fear of Obama.

And for good reason: Obama is pushing a treaty to ban reloading. Liberals are trying to regulate the components of ammunition as explosives and thus restrict ammunition. Liberals in California are nakedly attempting to circumvent the 2nd Amendment by regulating ammunition, hence making guns useless.

And the liberal campaign to deprive Americans of their 2nd Amendment guarantees (even as they discover “penumbras and emanations” in the Constitution that let them kill babies) is only a distant side issue in the massive government takeover of American society. Obama’s massive spending – more than every president from George Washington to George W. Bush COMBINED – will leave this country with an insurmountable national debt that would exceed 82 percent of the overall economy by 2019 and threaten this country’s very survival. We are now on the hook for $12.8 TRILLION dollars in government spending and commitments in the brave new world of the Obama economy.

We’ve got a president who is firing CEOs, stacking boards of directors, changing the rules for the auto manufacturers’ bankruptcy filings in order to favor the unions that supported him over the secured creditors. And if they don’t like it, they are met with frightening threats from the administration and death threats from union members. If that isn’t bad enough, we’ve also got card check on the horizon, which would allow union thugs to intimidate workers into unionizing with the union allowed to know exactly how each worker voted.

We’ve got a president who won’t let banks repay bailout loans (which in many cases were literally forced on them in the first place) so he can continue to impose onerous terms and conditions on them and control what they do and how they do it.

We’ve got a president who is planning to nationalize health care – and the one-sixth of our economy that it represents – even as he moves to impose costly and burdensome cap-and-trade regulations that would (in Obama’s own words) necessarily cause energy prices to soar.

And we’ve got a president who is attempting to nationalize student loans such that private lenders are phased out altogether. If Obama gets his way, the government will loan directly to families and students, making them directly indebted to the federal government. The government will necessarily get to decide which students, which schools, and which academic programs get loans.  An option for students is to repay their loans by means of “national service,” which already precludes any type of religious service whatsoever. The potential of liberal big government harnessing student labor to staff liberal organizations such as ACORN is becoming all-too real.

We have a new administration that moved to criminalize political differences by targeting Bush officials as war criminals, even as returning veterans and pro-life Americans are labeled as “rightwing extremists” in a DHS report sent out to the nation’s law enforcement agencies and police departments.

I’ve been saying something over and over in different ways. What the liberals are doing now will ultimately result in a “rightwing” backlash. What is true in physics is true in politics: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Liberals are pushing and pushing and pushing through one new massive spending program and one new policy after another that will change and undermine this country forever afterward.

Under Obama, terrorism is now called an “overseas contingency operation” and terror attacks are now nothing more than “man-caused disasters.”  In attacking the CIA as a means to attack Bush, Obama has created a depressed, sullen, and angry morale which promises to transfer into “cover your ass” caution and bureaucratic gamesmanship.  He has undermined our security to a shocking degree.  If we are attacked, this country will swing so far to the right so fast it will be absolutely unreal.

But even if we are not attacked, our country will likely implode under its own weight: trillions of dollars of reckless spending will have that effect as our dollar devalues and our interest payments on the debt begin to soar when inflation begins to take its toll.  Ultimately our taxes will skyrocket due to all of this spending.  CBS News has an article from March entitled, “If China Stops Lending Us Money, Look Out.”  Well, guess what?  They’re doing exactly that.  They’re canceling our credit card.

In a poll of chief executive officers taken prior to the election, 74 percent of the executives said they feared “that an Obama presidency would be disastrous for the country.”  And some of the CEOs predicted that “some of his programs would bankrupt the country within three years, if implemented.”  And with the Congress in nearly total Democratic control, they ARE being implemented.

When Obama and the Democrats bankrupt the country and undermine our entire social structure with massive spending programs and massive bureaucracies that cannot be undone, which direction will the country turn?  And how complete will that turnaround be?

Liberals are ignoring one ominous warning of popular outrage after another, claiming that conservatism and the Republican Party are dead.  And they will likely ignore what is going on in Montana – which is led by a Democrat governor – as well.  They are doing so to both their party’s and their country’s peril.

Montana, you’ve done a great thing for liberty, which is freedom from the growing tyranny of the smiley-face-fascist nanny state.

The backlash against big government liberal tyranny is beginning.  And it will become larger and hotter as Obama’s policies take their toll.  Let us hope that the spark turns into a fire before – rather than after – Obama has done too much damage to recover from.
