Its Like A Pirates Treasure Map

If you were a fledgling burglar and this benevolent liberal rag (The Journal News) provided you with this map where would you go?

They published all the names and addresses of people who own handguns indicated by red dots. Thus, the unwitting morons, also made public those that don't. They're trying to juxtapose law abiding gun owners with the deranged psychopath Sandy Hook shooter. Truthfully I don't know who was more unhinged. The shooter or his mother. What was the mental state of the mother teaching her son how to shoot while she's plotting to have him committed to a psychiatric ward?

I understand a blogger got a hold of the names and addresses of the newspaper's employees and published them. I heard they're upset. Possibly their privacy was violated? One thing for certain. 
They damn sure don't own a gun.

Update : 1-3-2013
The Journal News just hired armed security to protect the employees at the newspaper!

Law abiding citizens who own handguns legally...  BAD
Armed security to protect THE JOURNAL NEWS employees... GOOD

This is just like their posture with oil. They're against drilling and fracking but they want their car to start when they turn the key.

Person of the year 2012
Barack Obama

Although I must confess I'm not surprised... nevertheless after the first paragraph I almost had a grand mal seizure.

According to Time... He's one of the Founding Fathers!

BTW…Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood who is currently forming a dictatorship in Egypt was runner-up.

Speaking of Morsi wasn't it Barry who said, "Mubarak's got to go"?

Prepare yourself. This is what they said.

We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes, and Barack Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America. In 2012, he found and forged a new majority, turned weakness into opportunity and sought, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union.

What's the first line in the Preamble to the Constitution again? might need it.

He helped create a more perfect union? 

By creating an environment of "class warfare"?
By insisting everyone pay their "fair share" while 47% of working Americans pay no income tax?
 By calling Bush "irresponsible" and "unpatriotic" when the national debt was $10.6 trillion but wasted no time in  jacking it up to almost $16.5 trillion in 4 years!!!
By being at the helm as the nation's credit rating is downgraded?
The Solyndra sandal?
The Fast and Furious scandal?
The WH Leaks scandal?
Let's not forget about Benghazi.
How about waiting to the last minute to do something about the fiscal cliff  preferring to spend his time playing golf and becoming a regular on TV talk shows. I believe leadership was never a trait he aspired to attain. Choosing instead, lordship... to rule over his people, to which he and is legions of fans seem to adore. He was never a president. He's a celebrity, and that's all he'll ever be.

I am already reading so many pundits and other talking heads analyzing the disaster that was this year's elections. I am adding my own ten cents. Here goes:

1. We are outnumbered. We accurately foresaw the enthusiasm, the passion, the commitment, the determination, and the turnout. Married women, men, independents, Catholics, evangelicals - they all went for Romney in percentages as high or higher than the groups which voted for McCain in 2008. It wasn't enough. What we saw in the election on Tuesday was a tipping point: we are now at a place where there are legitimately fewer Americans who desire a free republic with a free people than there are those who think the government should give them stuff. There are fewer of us who believe in the value of free exchange and free enterprise. There are fewer of us who do not wish to demonize successful people in order to justify taking from them. We are outnumbered. For the moment. It's just that simple.

2. It wasn't the candidate(s). Some are already saying, "Romney was the wrong guy"; "He should have picked Marco Rubio to get Florida/Rob Portman to get Ohio/Chris Christie to get [someplace else]." With all due respect, these assessments are incorrect. Romney ran a strategic and well-organized campaign. Yes, he could have hit harder on Benghazi. But for those who would have loved that, there are those who would have found it distasteful. No matter what tactic you could point to that Romney could have done better, it would have been spun in a way that was detrimental to his chances. Romney would have been an excellent president, and Ryan was an inspired choice. No matter who we ran this year, they would have lost. See #1, above.

3. It's the culture, stupid. We have been trying to fight this battle every four years at the voting booth. It is long past time we admit that is not where the battle really is. We abdicated control of the culture - starting back in the 1960s. And now our largest primary social institutions - education, the media, Hollywood (entertainment) have become really nothing more than an assembly line for cranking out reliable little Leftists. Furthermore, we have allowed the government to undermine the institutions that instill good character - marriage, the family, communities, schools, our churches. So, here we are, at least two full generations later - we are reaping what we have sown. It took nearly fifty years to get here; it will take another fifty years to get back. But it starts with the determination to reclaim education, the media, and the entertainment business. If we fail to do that, we can kiss every election goodbye from here on out. And much more.

4. America has become a nation of adolescents The real loser in this election was adulthood: Maturity. Responsibility. The understanding that liberty must be accompanied by self-restraint. Obama is a spoiled child, and the behavior and language of his followers and their advertisements throughout the campaign makes it clear how many of them are, as well. Romney is a grown-up. Romney should have won. Those of us who expected him to win assumed that voters would act like grownups. Because if we were a nation of grownups, he would have won.

But what did win? Sex. Drugs. Bad language. Bad manners. Vulgarity. Lies. Cheating. Name-calling. Finger-pointing. Blaming. And irresponsible spending. This does not bode well. People grow up one of two ways: either they choose to, or circumstances force them to. The warnings are all there, whether it is the looming economic disaster, or the inability of the government to respond to crises like Hurricane Sandy, or the growing strength and brazenness of our enemies. American voters stick their fingers in their ears and say, "Lalalalalala, I can't hear you." It is unpleasant to think about the circumstances it will take to force Americans to grow up. It is even more unpleasant to think about Obama at the helm when those circumstances arrive.

5. Yes, there is apparently a Vagina Vote. It's the subject matter of another column in its entirety to point out, one by one, all of the inconsistencies and hypocrisies of the Democrats this year. Suffice it to say that the only "war on women" was the one waged by the Obama campaign, which sexualized and objectified women, featuring them dressed up like vulvas at the Democrat National Convention, appealing to their "lady parts," comparing voting to losing your virginity with Obama, trumpeting the thrills of destroying our children in the womb (and using our daughters in commercials to do so), and making Catholics pay for their birth control. For a significant number of women, this was appealing. It might call into question the wisdom of the Nineteenth Amendment, but for the fact that large numbers of women (largely married) used their "lady smarts" instead. Either way, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton are rolling over in their graves.

6. It's not about giving up on "social issues" No Republican candidate should participate in a debate or go out on the stump without thorough debate prep and a complete set of talking points that they stick to. This should start with a good grounding in biology and a reluctance to purport to know the will of God. (Thank you, Todd and Richard.)

That said, we do not hold the values we do because they garner votes. We hold the values we do because we believe that they are time-tested principles without which a civilized, free and prosperous society is not possible.

We defend the unborn because we understand that a society which views some lives as expendable is capable of viewing all lives as expendable.

We defend family - mothers, fathers, marriage, children - because history makes it quite clear that societies without intact families quickly descend into anarchy and barbarism, and we have plenty of proof of that in our inner cities where marriage is infrequent and unwed motherhood approaches 80 percent. When Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, many thought that the abortion cause was lost. Forty years later, ultrasound technology has demonstrated the inevitable connection between science and morality. More Americans than ever define themselves as "pro-life." What is tragic is that tens of millions of children have lost their lives while Americans figure out what should have been obvious before. There is no "giving up" on social issues. There is only the realization that we have to fight the battle on other fronts. The truth will win out in the end.

7. Obama does not have a mandate. And he does not need one. I have to laugh - bitterly - when I read conservative pundits trying to assure us that Obama "has to know" that he does not have a mandate, and so he will have to govern from the middle. I don't know what they're smoking. Obama does not care that he does not have a mandate. He does not view himself as being elected (much less re-elected) to represent individuals. He views himself as having been re-elected to complete the "fundamental transformation" of America, the basic structure of which he despises. Expect much more of the same - largely the complete disregard of the will of half the American public, his willingness to rule by executive order, and the utter inability of another divided Congress to rein him in. Stanley Kurtz has it all laid out here.

8. The Corrupt Media - is the enemy too strong? I don't think so. I have been watching the media try to throw elections since at least the early 1990s. In 2008 and again this year, we saw the media cravenly cover up for the incompetence and deceit of this President, while demonizing a good, honorable and decent man with lies and smears. This is on top of the daily barrage of insults that conservatives (and by that I mean the electorate, not the politicians) must endure at the hands of this arrogant bunch of elitist snobs. Bias is one thing. What we observed with Benghazi was professional malpractice and fraud. They need to go. Republicans, Libertarians and other conservatives need to be prepared to play hardball with the Pravda press from here on out. And while we are at it, to defend those journalists of whatever political stripe (Jake Tapper, Sharyl Atkisson, Eli Lake) who actually do their jobs. As well as Fox News and talk radio. Because you can fully expect a re-elected Obama to try to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine in term 2.

9. Small business and entrepreneurs will be hurt the worst For all the blather about "Wall Street versus Main Street," Obama's statist agenda will unquestionably benefit the biggest corporations which - as with the public sector unions - are in the best position to make campaign donations, hire lobbyists, and get special exemptions carved out from Obama's health care laws, his environmental regulations, his labor laws. It will be the small business, the entrepreneur, and the first-time innovators who will be crushed by their inability to compete on a level playing field.

10. America is more polarized than ever; and this time it's personal. I've been following politics for a long time, and it feels different this time. Not just for me. I've received messages from other conservatives who are saying the same thing: there is little to no tolerance left out there for those who are bringing this country to its knees - even when they have been our friends. It isn't just about "my guy" versus "your guy." It is my view of America versus your view of America - a crippled, hemorrhaging, debt-laden, weakened and dependent America that I want no part of and resent being foisted on me. I no longer have any patience for stupidity, blindness, or vulgarity, so with each dumb "tweet" or FB post by one of my happily lefty comrades, another one bites the dust, for me. Delete. What does this portend for a divided Congress? I expect that Republicans will be demoralized and chastened for a short time. But I see them in a bad position. Americans in general want Congress to work together. But many do not want Obama's policies, and so Republicans who support them will be toast. Good luck, guys.

11. It's possible that America just has to hit rock bottom. I truly believe that most Americans who voted for Obama have no idea what they are in for. Most simply believe him when he says that all he really wants is for the rich to pay "a little bit more." So reasonable! Who could argue with that except a greedy racist? America is on a horrific bender. Has been for some time now. The warning signs of our fiscal profligacy and culture of lack of personal responsibility are everywhere - too many to mention. We need only look at other countries which have gone the route we are walking now to see what is in store.

For the past four years - but certainly within the past campaign season - we have tried to warn Americans. Too many refuse to listen, even when all of the events that have transpired during Obama's presidency - unemployment, economic stagnation, skyrocketing prices, the depression of the dollar, the collapse of foreign policy, Benghazi, hopelessly inept responses to natural disasters - can be tied directly to Obama's statist philosophies, and his decisions.

What that means, I fear, is that they will not see what is coming until the whole thing collapses. That is what makes me so sad today. I see the country I love headed toward its own "rock bottom," and I cannot seem to reach those who are taking it there.

Laura Hollis

If we cannot regain control of those critical institutions ("that instill good character - marriage, the family, communities, schools, our churches"), that Ms. Hollis enumerated, and rekindle the rational, sane and conservative values they once represented,.....WE ARE DOOMED TO CONTINUE THIS SLIDE INTO A LEFTIST, PROGRESSIVE, LIBERAL LED DECAY and ULTIMATE COLLAPSE.

Please share this with as many as you can!!

Los Angeles police offer gift cards to take guns off streets

So if you live in LA, when someone breaks into your home, take aim with your trusty gift card and shout …FREEZE!

Comes in three denominations .22  .38  and .45 Caliber

Tomorrow's headline:

LA homeowner armed with gift card shot dead in home invasion

Los Angeles police offer gift cards to take guns off streets

LOS ANGELES | Wed Dec 26, 2012 8:22pm EST 

(Reuters) - Police traded gift cards for guns in Los Angeles on Wednesday, in a buyback program Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced as a crime-fighting response to the deadly shooting rampage in Newtown, Connecticut. 

Police officers handed out $200 grocery store gift cards to people who turned in an automatic weapon, and $100 gift cards to those who provided a handgun, rifle or shotgun.

Los Angeles has held an annual gun buyback since 2009, and similar events have been organized in years past in several other cities, including Detroit and Boston. Police in San Diego had a buyback earlier this month.

Some experts say the buybacks have little effect in reducing gun violence, but Villaraigosa touted the buyback program as one step that can be taken in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14 that claimed the lives of 20 children and six adult staff members.

The shooter, Adam Lanza, killed himself and also shot to death his mother at the home he shared with her, police said.

Los Angeles normally has its gun buyback in May, but Villaraigosa announced last week that the city would have this special buyback in response to the Newtown tragedy.

"There are a number of things we can do. This is just one of them," Villaraigosa said on CNN. "We've got to also address the culture of violence that we've got in this country."

At last count, the Los Angeles gun buyback had collected 1,366 firearms, including 477 handguns and 49 assault weapons, said Vicki Curry, a spokeswoman for the mayor.

The buyback ended at 4 p.m. local time, but a final tally of guns collected was not expected to be released before Thursday. In May, the city's annual gun buyback program collected 1,673 firearms at six locations, compared to two locations used for the program on Wednesday, Curry said.

At each of the locations where the buyback was held, a line of cars stretched around the block, Curry said. People dropping off their guns were asked to leave them in the trunks of their cars, where officers retrieved the weapons. Those surrendering their guns were allowed to remain anonymous.

While officials in Los Angeles and elsewhere have said the gun buybacks help keep streets safe, a 2004 report by the National Research Council of the National Academies questioned that conclusion.

Among the report's findings were that guns surrendered in buybacks tend to be old or inherited from previous owners, and not likely to be used in crime. Also, gun owners find it easy to replace their firearms, according to the report, which was titled "Firearms and Violence: A Critical Review."

The Gun Did It

We have just witnessed another atrocity. This time in in Webster NY. A lunatic, William Spengler

set the home he was living in with his sister ablaze. He then called the fire department and laid in wait on a nearby hill. When they arrived he shot and killed two fireman and wounded two others. It is believed he also killed his sister. Eventually, seven houses were "totally destroyed" by the fire.

 This shooting occurred amid a renewed gun control debate after the December 14 elementary school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, that killed 26 people, most of them children.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo described the Webster shooting as "horrific." And the state's attorney general called it a "senseless tragedy. I agree. Who wouldn't?

Feinstein, has said she will introduce legislation to reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004. BTW...people like Feinstein.. and Boxer supported the ban barring the ROTC from many college campuses. I also remember her being "outraged" over the White House Security leaks...and how she was going to "get to the bottom of it." We're still waiting.

That said lets talk about William Spengler. Just what kind of man is he? Well, for starters he is a convicted felon, which means he should never had guns to begin with. Convicted of what you say? He beat his grandmother to death with a hammer. Let me repeat that. He beat his own grandmother to death with a hammer. Nonetheless, in Webster NY, the gun did it. Not the actions of the parole board and the judge that set him free. The gun did it. I wonder if they could convince the fireman's families of that? This is like the hammer calling the rifle black.

Liberals... repeal that damn old-fashioned 2nd amendment!

I'll start with the 14th before I get to the 2nd amendment because I want to make a point. Since the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment to the constitution on July 9, 1868, the citizenship of persons born in the United States has been controlled by its Citizenship Clause, which states:

"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."

Now this... liberalism at its finest. They want to repeal the 2nd amendment. It's a "historical anachronism and should be repealed." Yet, merely amending the 14th amendment with just three words "of legal parents" as in..."All persons born of legal parents or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside." How could any true American be against this? Of course, liberals want no part of it. This would put an end to anchor babies or as liberals see it... future constituents. According to a report I read 38% of the federal prison population are illegals. I wonder how many of those used a gun to commit a crime?

LAPD most wanted.

See anybody with the last name Johnson on there?

The Founding Fathers were smart.

The Baltimore Sun

Repeal the Second Amendment

8:00 a.m. EST, December 23, 2012

What does the Second Amendment actually say? "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 Second Amendment has become a part of our history and culture. It was based on the English Bill of Rights of 1689, a measure that itself grew out of conditions between Catholics and Protestants in England more than 300 years ago.

The measure was adopted into our Constitution more than 200 years ago. But today the Second Amendment is a historical anachronism and should be repealed. We should no longer be the only industrialized country in the world that allows its citizens easy access to firearms. 

There are 300 million guns in the U.S. Britain today has very strict gun possession laws. In 2008-2009 it had only 39 fatalities from firearms, while the U.S. had 12,000. In Japan there were only 11 fatalities from guns during that period. Baltimore can have that many on a single bad weekend.

Do we need another Newtown? Another Aurora, Colo., Oak Creek, Wis., Tucson, Ariz., or Virginia Tech? Republican politicians insisted during the last presidential campaign that the prestige and respect of the U.S. had declined during the past four years. Our unthinking tolerance of gun violence may well be one of the reasons. I firmly believe that repealing the anachronistic Second Amendment will lead us to fulfill former President Ronald Reagan's hope for the U.S. to become "a beacon light guiding freedom loving people everywhere."

They conveniently left out more people die every year from smoking, drinking, car accidents etc, then die from guns. I wonder why when Timothy McVey killed 168 people with a bomb made from fertilizer they didn't call for a ban on Scotts Weed & Feed? BTW...Why is McVey dead and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed still among the living?

The Immaculate Concussion

 Artist rendition of the "accident" 

This episode, in some circles is referred to as Benghazi Syndrome. Additionally, an acute case of temporary amnesia has set in. She didn't know who Bill was until she found a picture of  Monica in his wallet. 

Come on now. Tell me the Clinton camp didn't discuss the "accident" before it happened.

 Were there any witnesses to this so-called fainting and concussion? Any records of MRI's, X-rays, etc? Anyone interview the doctor?  If this happened in 2016 do you think she would be able to "pull herself together" to accept the nomination?

Classic Clinton

(Last time she tripped over that "Bosnian sniper")

Her husband ...Well..seeing is believing..

 Bill pimping... I mean campaigning.. for Barry.

Pay particular attention to the last sentence.

The morons he's talking to have a short memory.

These two are so good they could join the comedy club circuit as the Quintessential  Liars.

Hillary admitted to the hospital with a blood clot. 
A Spokesman would not indicate where the blood clot is located.

You'll throw away the Knob Creek

Now that Obama has gotten another 4 years to finish his job of ruining the country, to help us with our despair, I thought I would come up with a helpful suggestion so we could at least make it through the holidays.

I like Kentucky straight bourbon. I tried a lot of different brands but pretty much stuck with Knob Creek. Nonetheless, I was getting a little tired of it and ready for something different. I did a little research on the internet and the premier name that kept popping up was Woodford Reserve. It's rated as one of the best Kentucky straight bourbon's even though it's not the most expensive. I bought a bottle, poured a little in a glass drank it straight and I must admit... disappointed. That's when I put a few ice cubes in the glass and swirled it around a little. WOW!!! What a difference! I don't want to sound like a nose in the air snob connoisseur but the taste is reminiscent of warm buttery carmel with back notes of pecan and they achieve this without a hint of sweetness. Knob Creek (100 proof) has a harsh, burning, peppery, taste compared to the silky smooth (90.4 Proof) Woodford Reserve.

Also comes in several different variations

WARNING: This stuff is like crack. You'll throw away your Knob Creek. Also helps if you suffer, as I do, from "Barry Syndrome".

PS: If you serve this at a party they won't touch the vodka, scotch, rum, etc.

Sandy Hook and Benghazi

When one of these tragic events occurs we often look for someone to blame. The events that really struck me recently was Benghazi, and even more tragic, Sandy Hook. I'm not trying to compare the two or tie them together. Just trying to voice my opinion. 

I saw the handwriting on the wall after Sandy Hook. Our government wants stricter gun control laws. If they could disarm all American citizens they would. They want to disarm you; not the Secret Service and various security forces that are heavily armed and protect these worthless imbeciles. When was the last time you heard of anyone breaking into the Senate or the House of Representatives, let alone the Oval Office, and go on a killing spree? They have about as much concern for your individual safety as they do about the deficit. Ironically Washington DC has some of the toughest gun control laws in the nation. They also have the highest rate of homicide. No one knows the exact number of firearms owned by private citizens. The FBI estimates that there are over 200 million privately-owned firearms in the US. Even if there was no such thing as the 2nd Amendment does anyone truly believe  EVERYONE would turn over their guns?

Concerning Benghazi, Hillary who was about to testify conveniently faints and suffers a concussion. Remember now she is a Clinton. Were there any witnesses to this event?  It's starting to smell like the "Bosnian sniper". I guess it is of no consequence since the government has wrapped it all up in a neat little package issuing a statement trying to put a end to yet another scandal referring to it as  "systemic failures" . Washingtonese for EPIC FAIL. I suppose that means there is so much blame to go around they don't know where to begin; so don't blame anybody? Hillary wants to run in 2016 and is trying  to put as much distance between her and Barry as she can. By 2016 this country will be just about ruined finically. The talk on the street is Moody's will follow S&P with another downgrade.

Enter Sandy Hook. The government can't, more likely won't, figure out Benghazi aided by the MSM, but they have all the answers to solve Sandy Hook. Bottom line. It's the guns. Get rid of them... problem solved. Forget about personal responsibility. Forget about addressing people with serious mental issues.

I feel the need to cast a stone here myself. The Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza  no matter how you slice it or dice it had a history of mental issues to be sure. The last story I heard if it is correct (this story changes more then the weather) the mother Nancy did volunteer work with kindergarden children at the school and her son was jealous because he thought she was spending too much time with them. To further exacerbate the situation he found out his mother was on the computer looking up web sites to have him committed to a psychiatric facility. This is what investigators believed made him snap. I'm sorry but if someone is to be blamed for this point the finger at the mother. Living alone a single mom the mother felt a need to have guns in the home, not a problem. However, when you have a son who resides with you who has a history of mental disorders Asperger Syndrome, and was seeing a therapist, you have to wonder why, as was  reported, she taught her son how to shoot taking him to a shooting range. You really have to question her judgement here. These guns should have been locked up or at least in a safe place where he couldn't find them. Guns in the hands of people with mental disorders usually winds up in a devastating aftermath of which we just witnessed.  The story I read was she was trying to bond with her son. But why not take him fishing, bowling, etc...anything but shooting! 

And finally what gets me about these guys is they usually wind up killing a group of people then turn the gun on themselves. Too bad they didn't do that first.

As far as blaming God is concerned...

It is hard to conceive what was allowed to happen in Benghazi. On a separate note there are no words to convey my sorrow over the 27 dead in Sandy Hook... 20 of which were children. One of the mothers said of her daughter... "the last time I saw her she was blowing kisses at me from the school bus." Talk about heart wrenching. I can't even begin to imagine what the parents are going through. Please pray for them and the loved ones they left behind.
