I figure Ob takes the guns within 1 year….
Who’s going to stop him?
Every big city and virtually all big state governments are now in the possession of Washington elites. Usually referred to as Liberals. They have routed fiscal conservatives. They’ve won. Every one agreeing with them will be on bailouts. Those who oppose will be simply vilified and ignored.
Dems do it all the time with highway or school funds.
Libs have been plotting for years for this unbridled opportunity. Their plan is and has been simple: give everybody a check then threaten to take it back. Fall in line or cut off money to anyone who disagrees with them.
Very few politicians and government officials can stand in their way because the economy will suck. wait a year or so and see.
Unemployed or frightened constituents don’t put up much of a fight. And with the cities turning into poverty filled Hell holes who can blame them.
Many of us can remember the 60’s and the widespread big city riots and lawlessness. That’s when the Dems got the Republicans on board and poured money into these rat holes to staunch the violence.
They also ramrodded draconian and unconstitutional gun laws through various legislatures. One side effect was that people who defended their property went to jail or were sued by criminals shot in the act. Criminals when caught went on vacation at taxpayer expense.
Ever hear of “white flight?”
Didn’t fall out of the sky and bite us in the ass. As the media reported minorities robbing and shooting each other white folks bailed from the cities creating huge losses of taxes and spending.
In effect taking out the inner city economies.
Big mess for Washington. This eventually ended up as a guarantee of power for Libs. The cities were bailed out. Leading to today’s unspoken mantra: vote for me and you get your check. Vote for the other guys and they take away your benefits. Good old class warfare.
Guaranteeing these people became in effect, slaves to Government largess. This became the norm in politics where the government divides the loot from our paychecks and gives it to their constituencies.
Why else would anyone vote for these guys. You think the system is on the up and up? I think it’s obvious that our government consists of competing gangs usually financed by rich insiders who manipulate the system to their advantage. Every once in awhile, a Ross Perot or a Ron Paul comes along and puts the fear of God into them. But these distractions don’t last long.
However, what it looks like from the outside is that maybe buying off minorities is self defense after all. Keeping them out of our neighborhoods seems like government policy.
Whether it’s politically correct or not. This has become the norm. Take care of the turf and the turf takes care of you.
Here in redneck heaven Idaho we simply watch these people and shake our heads. Who wants anything to do with the government anyways. They steal your money and give it to crooks and bums who bribe them and their families.
In our own country, we should be ever vigilant against any attempts to disarm the people, especially in this economic downturn. I expect violent crime to rise sharply in the coming days, and as states and municipalities are even more financially strained, the police will be even less able or willing to respond to crime. In many areas, local police could become more and more absorbed with revenue generating activities, like minor traffic violations and the asset forfeiture opportunities of non-violent drug offenses. Your safety has always, ultimately been your own responsibility, but never more so than now. People have a natural right to defend themselves. Governments that take that away from their people should be highly suspect.
