Overthrow Obama? Not so 'crazy' as it sounds

H/T: WorldNetDaily

Jeff Knox's commentary brings up an interesting point.  What if some one chooses to resort to the Declaration of Independence (image) to correct the absurdities of the current political elite?  Eh? 
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.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
 Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.


In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
(Emphasis added - Gene)

Writing or talking like this might get one thrown in jail these days!  Look at the reaction Glenn Beck is already getting for his restoration of honor rally tomorrow.  You'd think he was the Great Satan come to Washington DC.  As it is, he is a rabble rouser - at worst.  He may even be a patriot andpotential leader of constitutional restoration.  Time and events will tell.

God Bless Ya'll !

More regulatory overreach at the EPA

H/T: The American Thinker Blog

I've heard it all my adult life.  As California goes, so goes the rest of the country.  Or some such tripe.

Now, even the EPA is trying to follow the socialist lemmings idiots off the cliff!
In yet another case of regulatory overreach, perfectly timed to further annoy the electorate, the EPA is considering a petition to completely ban lead hunting and target-shooting ammunition, under the Toxic Substances Control Act.
If the socialist can't disarm us one way, they'll try another.  We DID see this one coming!

God Bless Ya'll !

Obama, Black Liberation Theology and Karl Marx...Revisited

H/T: The American Thinker Blog

Big 'O' and the Big 'C'.  Obama and Socialism/Communism.  What's there not to dislike? 

The newest religion of the day?
It is somewhat difficult to imagine a more contorted blasphemy, with the single possible exception of Hitler himself claiming to be acting by divine decree in the interests of Christianity.  Which is precisely what Hitler did do, while hoodwinking the German people into electing him Chancellor.
Having been a practicing Christian for more than 40 years now, and a practicing Catholic for 26 of those years, I have visited perhaps 100 various Christian bookstores, both Protestant and Catholic.  In all of those places, one thing tied together the books for sale:  Christianity.

Not so in Obama's church bookstore.
Aw, come on guys and gals.  Tell me ya' didn't see this coming.

God Bless Ya'll !

"I think our country is in need of a revolution."

H/T: WorldNetDaily

No, yours truly did not say/write those words.  Ray Bradbury did as reported in Phil Elmore's Technocracy article.

Read it and see what you think.

What If?

A while back I got interested in alternative fiction.  It was something I had been introduced to as a mere youth by Sprague de Camp and others and then forgotten.

First, Eric Flint captured my attention with his 1632 and other stories.  More of late I've been reading some from Harry Turtledove.  All interesting stuff, if you like that kind of fiction.  Right now, I do.

However, I did find that Turtledove has published children's fiction, stacked right-smack-dab in the middle of the adult fiction at my local library.

I picked up one of his Crosstime Traffic books and found interesting if not a bit biased toward a younger mind set.  Oh well.  It was fun.

So, earlier this week I picked up, deliberately, another one.  The Gladiator:  A Novel of Crosstime Traffic.  Here, Turtledove asks:  What if the SOVIETS had won the cold war?

Ouch. It's made me think both about the what-if questions AND the what-now questions we face in this, all-to-real, time line.

Such things as the control of media, the double-speak of our "elite" class and the "elite" wannabes" makes me think we ought to be changing our thinking.

What do YOU think?

God Bless Ya'll !

Firearms and History Lessons Combined

H/T: Fox News Channel

Here is good positive reporting on firearms issues that you might be interested in.
"What we're interested in is climate change," Dailey said. "We want to change the people who vote -- the electorate. And the way we've chosen to do that is to try and put Americans back in touch with their heritage."
Wish I could go to one.  Certain things have to be accomplished/overcome first, though. 

God Bless Ya'll !

Nostaglgia and Ham Radio. What's Not to Like?

H/T: Retrotechnologist

Dang!  Roberta sure knows how to make a guy feel OLD!  hehe

I actually remember being interested, slightly, in the 2m preamp article.  Can't seem to find the commercial equivalent today.  Of course, this kind of stuff is ALL over the internet.  If you look for it.

God Bless Ya'll !

History in the Making

First of all, I have been remiss in my duties here.  Mea culpa!

Secondly,  others haven't.  Once again, I recommend Brigid's Home on the Range

Like Thomas Paine of old, she can stir the rabble.  Ultimately, though her methods differ from Paine's, she will prove to be another voice for freedom and responsibility.  Read her current article and cogitate.

Then consider your next steps carefully.

God Bless Ya'll. !
