SCOTUS nomination

Well this is news that I have been dreading since the GOP already stole one seat on the  current SCOTUS bench.

Of course Mitch McConnell wants to get a speedy vote on this. He knows that the country is pissed at his slimy thieving ass.

We are seeing that federal court nominees are not even wanting to answer questions about landmark cases. They are getting away with it, why? because the GOP does not care about justice and constitutionality, just drive the dollars in the correct direction.

We know that the GOP is pushing for the youngest judges that it can get, regardless of qualifications.

Regardless of the damages, Thank you Justice Kennedy for all of the years that you have given to the bench.

GOP Hypocrisy

Time and time again we hear the GOP preach that they want a smaller government and fiscal responsibility.

I would love to see either of those tenets to be true.

I just have not seen it yet. Each GOP administration has expanded the government. We are still early in Cheeto Von Tweeto’s administration. Since he seems to be too mentally challenged to fill out his appointment list, he may achieve this before his impeachment.Time will tell if he is destined to choke on some prison cock, but that may be a debate on another day.

Fiscal responsibility… not from this administration. All of those people who felt that a failed reality show host was a great idea. fuck the hell off. You helped screw over a few generations. It is going to take some time to repair the damages on this tax cut bill. We know that T-Rump will sign it, thinking that it is amazing. well it is kind of amazing. amazing that millions of people were so stupid that they set the stage for this shit show.

We learned from Reagan that his trickle down theory does not work. Later on, we watched in horror as W game away billions in tax rebates. Yes, I cashed mine too. We knew that the country was not in a position for that tax package.

Is the GOP so stricken with tunnel vision that it cannot see what must be done? If you want to cut taxes, great find a way to pay for it. What are you going to cut? Congress (both sides of the aisle) are very happy to raise their pay, benefits, pensions, protections and exclusions. That is the easy stuff for them.  The hard part seems to be doing things responsibly, like oh I don’t know… pay back all of the money that they and their predecessors have stolen form social security over the years? How about they find some pork to trim away?

Sadly this is not the modern GOP way. The new way is to fool the masses in thinking that you have a fucking clue as to what to do, then protect the wealthy.

Want the positive? Here it is, most of the damage is done after the next term is over. So T-Rump will be out of office no matter what. If we the people are enjoying any luck, the next congress or two will undo this fuqtard’s actions. No I am not wanting him to be erased from history. We need to never make this kind of mistake again.

North Korea begs for decimation

Isn’t it interesting that the North Koreans are trying to claim that T-Rump declared war? I am guessing that the supreme leader does not allow for education, let alone the subject of history.

It was after all the North Koreans that declared war by invading South Korea on June 25th, 1950.

That painful war, dragged on until July 27th, 1950 when they signed an armistice, not a peace treaty, but an armistice bringing an end to the fighting.

On at least six occasions, the North Koreans had backed out of the armistice. Obviously I do not want to see nuclear arms in play. Even in the “good guys’” hands, they are a terrible idea. But when a psychopath controls them (yes, in this case, both sides) it is a scary situation.

I am not normally a hawk, but it may be time to finish this one. The current regime appears to be hell bent to see some action. I am not saying that T-Rump is not without fault. The Hyper-Tweeting Orangutan has been bickering with Kim Jong Un like a school kid. If it were just saber rattling, we could just move on as long as the war does not heat back up. The events that led me to believe that we should bring this chapter to a decisive conclusion is that Kim Fatty the Third keeps escalating his testing of weapons that put millions/billions at risk.

It is time for us to make Kim yell out: 이런 벙커 버스터는 어디서 나온거야? (Holy shit, where did all of the bunker busters come from?)

 

Ferguson, yes I have views too

So the world has been watching to see where this went.

Before I begin, I was not there, nor was I in the grand jury, so I know only what the public knows.

I am in a different camp than Wil Wheaton, and others. I am probably in the minority of Anonymous, as the vocal side is stomping their feet that this was such a travesty.

I do not know what factors told the officer that deadly force was the best reaction.  Perhaps he SHOULD have used a non-lethal.

Am I racist? no, will I be called racist, could be.

We knew that the chance was high that there was going to be trouble either way tonight.  How many riots or destruction has occurred after winning a pro ball game or hockey game? People get overly excited and lose their common sense.

The bottom line is that the grand jury did not see enough to compel ANY of them to put forth charges. Not ONE!

We know from the strong arm robbery shortly before his death, that he was not in his right mind. He may have been kind and gentle normally, but not that day.

Sorry, this was blown way out of proportion, and most of us knew it in August. So much money and time spent. I will not call it it a waste, because our society seemed to feel the need for it to be intense. So be it.

We also knew in August that the masses were no going to accept the outcome.

Now it will go to a civil case where you don’t really have to prove a case. At least not anywhere near as conclusively.

God help those who have been directly impacted; family, friends, the community, even the police…

To those protesting: Please do not rip up your communities…

Interesting Reading for the Fourth of July

Do you know how many times God is mentioned in the Declaration of Independence? Once.

Just so nobody thinks that I am taking it out of context:
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the
political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the
earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle
them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes
which impel them to the separation. ”

Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God, that is much more than just God. That is is the equivilent to god, leaving all faiths open. IN fact Nature’s God coule be interpreted to be much closer to Pagans than Chistians. Funny thing isn’t it?

 

How many times does God appear in the Constitution? Zero.
How about the Bill of Rights, is he there? Nope.
How many times does God show up in the Articles of Confederation? Zero.

For a nation that some feel was founded on God, the supporting documents just aren’t there.

Now a country founded on the belief that ALL should be able to practice the religion of their choosing, that is all over the place. The First Amendment does a good job if putting that out there for us.

And we’re on to our next challenge!

Seems North Korea is at it again.

And I will reiterate the last paragraph;
When an unstable communist dictator openly threatens to nuke you, what is the proper response. I’m especially interested in the opinion of left-wingers who reflexively dismiss any sort of aggressive response as only making the situation worse. Fine. What would you do? Pay them a king’s ransom? Ignore them and pray they’re not serious? Go to the Chinese (you might want to bring some money, since we owe them a little) and ask them to get the kid under control?

 

Being moderate, I try to steer away from total destruction. And I’d like to see us (the US) get out of other countries’ business, but this time it is a direct threat on us. We invaded the middle east because of an indirect threat, what will we do to counter this direct threat?

Nullification Lives On

The Michigan House of Representatives unanimously voted in favor of House bill 5768. A bill which states that no state employee can assist in any way with the federal government carrying out actions pursuant to section 1021 of the national defense authorization act. An act which authorizes the federal government to detain indefinitely and without cause anyone. The 2012 NDAA reeks of McCarty era politics, now states are standing up and saying NO we are not going back to that dark time.

http://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2012/12/ndaa-nullification-bill-passes-michigan-house-107-0/

Should the federal government be allowed to bypass all due process in pursuit of their assumed enemy?

Are the states right to fight back against this act that would give the federal government absolute authority in detaining citizens?

Government Oppression

At what point does our government slip from a republic to a police state?

There is an argument that during the Bush years it had slid to more of a monarchy (yes, even with Congress in place.)

So where does this question come from? Well this week we had the protest at the Walmart distribution center where the local police brought out an LRAD (Long Range Audio Device) and it was used as a threat against the protesters. LRAD are deployed on cruise and merchant ships to repel pirates. They will damage the ears and make you physically ill. It is my understanding that they can be fatal if used incorrectly (or perhaps I should say in a manner not for crowd dispersing).

While I was reading more about the LRAD, I found that the Chicago police have one and threatened to use it at the G-8/NATO meeting protest. The Pittsburgh police have one and they actually did deploy it against citizens that were protesting the G-20 meeting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UV88Ndffr1c You can hear what it sounds like there.  This over-reaction has resulted in lawsuit over the hearing damage to bystanders. LRAD have been provided all over the country for use against citizens.  http://www.infowars.com/lrad-sonic-weapons-to-be-deployed-throughout-america-for-crises/

I also discovered a military field manual that was disturbing as a vet, and a citizen.

http://info.publicintelligence.net/USAMPS-CivilDisturbanceOps.pdf

I still have to finish reading this manual, but to this point, I have to wonder where our government is going.

Before you start the Obama bashing, this manual was put into place in 2006, during Baby Bush’s reign. Of course some blame is to be had, but not stopping it after taking office.

We are seeing the pendulum swing back to the direction of the government and local police departments. Rights are under assault, but our legislators are useless fucks and don’t give a shit. Their short dicked club, is in it for their best interests, not the country’s.

We have to pay attention, speak, and be heard.

Why should our military be planning on killing citizens on us soil?

We know that we found out about their exercises to seize the firearms from citizens if we were to get too uppity about illegal immigrants.  They yielded when it was leaked and changed the exercise. Fuck you, government you work for us. You have gotten too big, you are reaching too far, you are spending too much overseas, hell you are spending too much in general.

You are to protect the citizenry, not make plans to eliminate it should it exercise its rights.

2nd Amendment

 

Okay, for the first in a series of posts on firearms and citizenry, lets go.

Why did the founding fathers feel the need for us to have the right to bear arms?

 

The three main reasons were:

  1. To keep a militia at the ready to defend our nation
  2. so that the citizens could regain control of an oppressive government
  3. allow for slave owners to have protections from insurrection, at least the ability to quell them (this point is under heavy contention as bullshit)

We will be looking at more aspects as we progress through our tour.
