Oval Office Tyrant

The man currently working out of the oval office is a tyrant. He has no respect for the constitution he swore to uphold. He does believe in the concept of individual rights.

In a presidential proclamation marking Constitution Day - a day set aside to honor the ratification of the document that should form the basis for our government but no longer does - Obama wrote:

It secures the privileges we enjoy as citizens, but also demands participation, responsibility, and service to our country and to one another. (emphasis added.)

A right is yours. It is inherent in your being. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights it contains do not grant you rights, they protect your rights from infringement by the government.

A privilege is something granted to you, and having been granted can be taken away. That is why the tyrant in the White House refers to your rights as privileges. Because his goal, and the goal of both political parties in Washington, is to take those rights away. To exert power and control over everyone and everything.

Is there a chance this can be stopped by voting? I doubt it. There are too many people willing to hand over their rights in exchange for a taxpayer backed check.

Sic Semper Tyrannis.

Harry Is Not Happy

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid brought a procedural vote to the floor to begin debate on the amendment eliminating the Constitutional protection of free speech. He expected Republicans to block the vote and effectively kill the bill. By a bipartisan vote of 79-18 debate will go forward.

Now instead of moving on to other issues which Reed hoped Democrats could use to their advantage in the mid-term election, they will have to go on record for why they think repealing the First Amendment would be a good idea.

Harry is apparently not happy that the Republicans he routinely excoriates as obstructionist didn't obstruct the debate he never wanted to have.

That's just too damned bad.

Organizing for Freedom

Harry Reed and the Senate Democrats are going to move forward on a vote to amend the Constitution in manner that would allow the Congress to regulate political speech.

Specifically they want to be able to limit the speech of certain organizations involved in the political process i.e. the ones that oppose their statist socialist agenda.

The vote in the Senate will likely fail. Even it manages to pass, the proposed amendment would go no where.

But just in case I am announcing the formation of a new Political Action Committee.

Terrorist Management 101

At a recent press conference, President Obama announced to the world that we don't not have a strategy for dealing with ISIS. This gave me hope. With two years left to go in his administration he had said the stupidest thing I can imagine a president ever saying. There was no where to go but up.

I was wrong.

Speaking at another press conference (and maybe he should consider not doing any more of these) Obama said:

We know that if we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink ISIL’s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point where it is a manageable problem.

A manageable problem? What does that even mean? 

If they only kill X number of people a week that's OK? 

How many heads do they have to cut off before they are considered unmanageable?

The American people have elected a complete idiot to the White House. We need to take steps to make his stupidity manageable.
