Had Enough of the Democrats Yet?

Hot Air carried three stories yesterday that should make any reasonable person want to take a fire hose to D.C. and wash all the Democrats down the liberal sewer. You may want to take a couple of deep breaths and count to ten before reading further.

Fast and Furious is proof we need more gun control

I guess we had to know this was coming.  Tina Korbe reporting for Hot Air and quoting an article from The Hill tell us what Senator Diane Feinstein is up to:

“This hunt for blame doesn’t really speak about the problem,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein at a recent Senate Judiciary hearing while discussing Fast and Furious.

“And the problem is, anybody can walk in and buy anything, .50-caliber weapons, sniper weapons, buy them in large amounts, and send them down to Mexico. So, the question really becomes, what do we do about this?”

The ranking Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), and Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) have introduced a dedicated firearms trafficking statute, but it has stalled in the House Judiciary Committee.

Excuse me, Senator Feinstein but the only way anybody can do what you describe; they will first need the blessing and funding of the Department of Justice. Please read both articles for more infuriating tid bits.

Politics First, America Second

Remember the Keystone Pipeline Project? It’s the multi-billion dollar project to bring oil from Alberta, Canada to  Texas gulf coast  refineries. The project has been delayed for several years waiting for EPA approval and finally State Department approval; the latter is needed because of crossing of international borders. Approval of this project would mean  an immediate economic shot in the arm that America so sorely needs right now. One couldn’t wish for a bigger shovel ready jobs project than the Keystone pipeline project. The EPA gave their approval nearly a year ago, if my memory serves me correctly, and the State Department promised to make a decision before the end of this year.  But maybe not. You  see this is campaign season for Mr. Obama. The project is strongly supported by Obama’s union friends and strongly opposed by Obama’s environmental friends and he doesn’t want to upset either group. From this Hot Air article we learn the following:

The Obama campaign can’t afford to lose the support of either side. So, in typical slippery fashion, the administration seeks simply to delay a decision. The Los Angeles Times reports:

The Obama administration is considering a move that could delay a decision on the controversial Keystone XL pipeline by requiring sponsors to reduce the project’s environmental risks before it can be approved, according to people with knowledge of the deliberations.

The step might put off a decision until after the 2012 election and be a way for the White House to at least temporarily avoid antagonizing either the unions that support the pipeline or the environmental activists who oppose it as President Obama gears up for his campaign.

Hell, unemployed Americans can wait another year, right? Mr. Obama has a campaign to worry about. He has to set priorities, right?

Who cares if N. C. is a right-to-work state?

That is the attitude of Big Labor and the Democrats as they plan to import out-of-state union workers for the work involved in preparing for the Democrat’s National Convention in Charlotte next year. Screw the non-union workers of Charlotte. Democrats do things the Big Labor way whether you folks in North Carolina like it or not. Read about it here at Hot Air.  This act of stupidity may be one the Democrats will regret.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking.  What are your thoughts?

  1. I’m not surprised in the least that some gun control fool is wanting to use Fast and Furious as an excuse to pass more laws that restrict our 2nd Amendment rights. The only thing that does surprise me is that it took them this long to give it a try.

      1. CoF,

        I can totally see that.

        ((So some Americans got killed…pfft. We have an agenda and a manifesto that must be fulfilled. What’s a few meaningless lives when it comes to bringing forth our Great Society?))

  2. There is an ad on WBT radio in Charlotte that is a “Chicago union guy thanking Mayor Foxx for the out of state gig.” It is a satirical slam on the Mayor and the DNC for refusing bids from non-union workers here in North Carolina. Foxx is on the slate in the Mayoral election today against a Republican named Scott Stone. We’ll know tonight…but earlier today I read the early vote was some 61% democrats…to 22% Republicans and 16% independents. Not looking too great. The demographics in Charlotte have changed over the years and blacks are overtaking whites in population. There has been white flight to surrounding counties as the schools deteriorated and the Smart Growth congestion has taken over the city. We live 25 miles to the west of Charlotte and watched it morph over the last 30 years from a wonderful city to shop and visit, to a difficult slog and now too cumbersome to bother going there. Really a shame, but the former mayor, a Republican, brought a lot of it on, also. Real shame.

    On the gun control issue…the global leftists will do anything to disarm Americans. Holder should be in the cell next to Obama.

    1. We are definitely running out of time, my friend. Corruption and ignorance are going to bring us down if we don’t find a way to wake-up more people. Did you read Cheryl’s comment today? There are many people who are not interested in hearing the truth. It scares me.

  3. These are three very good reasons to get rid of the Democrats and there are many more. To think that the government can implement a program to condition the people for more gun control and then once the program goes bad claim that this is also proof we need gun control shows us how unhinged they have become. They are no longer thinking straight and they are becoming dangerous.

    1. What makes my blood boil is they think we are the ones that are out of touch with America today. I know things have had to change a lot since came to Venezuela but I do not want to believe that I am that out of touch. The constitution is my touchstone and i have to believe it still is for a lot of America today.

  4. I have been reading the comments and I must say I can feel the frustration. Always remember that it is darkest before the dawn. People are indeed waking up. 2010 was just the tip of the iceberg. The Tea Party movement is better organized and working in the trenches on the state levels to turn the tide. The Democratic party of our grandparents is gone and has been replaced by a more Euro Socialistic party calling themselves Democrats. This is a truth we must accept. The actions of the Obama administration and the OWS protesters are the best thing that has happened for the conservative movement. More and more people are seeing the light and beginning to understand how entrenched this flawed ideology is in our system and institutions. The Republic may be on life support, but it is not dead. I will fight for it until my last breath.

  5. Remember that there are two wings to the bird of prey:

    1. Charles Krauthammer wrote in 1996 in the Washington Post a column entitled, Disarm the Citizenry, But Not Yet. A key excerpt:

    “Ultimately, a civilized society must disarm its citizenry if it is to have a modicum of domestic tranquillity of the kind enjoyed in sister democracies like Canada and Britain. Given the frontier history and individualist ideology of the United States, however, this will not come easily. It certainly cannot be done radically. It will probably take one, maybe two generations. It might be 50 years before the United States gets to where Britain is today.”

    2. Rep. Peter King on the Homeland Security committee and past recipient of Sinn Fein monies (ironic, no?) is pushing for more gun control to protect high-ranking feds such as himself.

    3. Chris Christie and Mitt Romney support the tough gun control laws of their respective states.

    4. Both Mitch McConnell and John Kyl moved to block an amendment to the Patriot Act that would protect gun ownership. Now why would they do a thing like that?

    5. It was under the Bush administration that Fast and Furious’s predecessor, Operation Wide Receiver was initiated, and it was under Bush that “right wing extremists” were listed on terror watch list propaganda.

    I would say its easier to call out democrats because their rhetoric is so easily recognizable as UN-american. But there are “republicans” who are working toward the same ends in dissolving American sovereignty and trying to spin it as a great thing. Right wingers are catching on to this, so I think that’s why we see things accelerating.

  6. Good thing folks like Feinstein aren’t smart enough to keep the cat in the bag.

    I mean, we don’t need her admission. We know there could be no other purpose for the operation then to further the political agenda against the 2nd amendment. But now, if I get neighbors arguing “oh, surely it’s not so nefarious,” well.

    I can quote Feinstein, can’t I? thanks for the info, CoF.
