Excellent article over at WND that refutes the liberal morons at Brady and their stupid campaign to ensure that criminals are armed and the law abiding citizens aren’t.

Just remember, the average response time for the police from 911 calls is 23 minutes when seconds count.

Screw Brady, screw the Democrat assholes that want to take away my rights, and make me subservient to them. Not gonna happen.

How does your state rate on 2nd Amendment?

(Excerpt, A.K.A. the money quote).

The Brady Center released this latest scorecard with much hoopla and heavy breathing, but their own data clearly shows that there is no correlation between gun control and criminal violence. Crime statistics vary widely – from high to virtually non-existent among the 40 or so states Brady ranks as “poor,” while several of the Brady’s highest ranked states have some of the highest rates of violent crime.

As a matter of fact, a full 25 percent of all violent crime in the U.S. occurs in the Brady’s top four states with the most severe firearms restrictions. Of course the Brady bunch and its political allies argue that the tight restrictions are a response to the high crime, but most of the restrictions have been in place for years, if not decades, and they have proven to be completely ineffective at reducing criminal violence.

Republicans vs. Marxists: How about a truth in labeling law for politics?

Written By: Bob – Mar• 12•12

I don’t think it comes as a shock to anyone that there are just a precious few Democrats left in the Democratic Party. Most of those that remain serve on the local or state level. At the federal level, radicals have slowly but consistently pushed the power structure of the party to the left, to the point that John F. Kennedy was still alive (and hadn’t been sniped by a communist), he would be stunned that the Marxists he almost took us to nuclear war against, have now usurped the House minority, the Senate majority, and the White House.

“But Bob, you go too far.”

“That’s pure hyperbole.”

“Suck it, Trebek.”

No, no, and no.

We have to look no further than the President himself.

And for your enjoyment, a great speech. I learned this speech in 5th, or 6th grade. Not sure if they still teach it, or not. Kind of have my doubts.

Great ad the GOP should play over and over again until the SCOAMF is out of office.

H/T Argghhh!

A fine ship indeed.

Last Lap for Enterprise CVAN/CVN-65

Tomorrow, 11 March 2012, the storied USS Enterprise (CVN-65) will leave home port to ply the world’s oceans for the 22nd, and last time. As she is about to head toward Middle Eastern waters, the Associated Press published a nice piece about her, and the challenges that her crew of 4,000 face in keeping a ship that is older than most of their parents operating and ready.

Since SWMBO reminded me how expensive picture books were to print, I figured I would take advantage of this newfangled internet thing to post some pictures of the Big E, and relate some things about her 52 years in service. A good deal of these pictures will come from familiar places, such as NavSource.org, and DANFS, as well as some others included from various spots.

More.

Gas prices are having an affect. I don’t see gas prices dropping to the levels that they were when the SCOAMF took office, so this is in play for the general election. His illegal use of the military in Libya, his blatant disregard for the Constitution, among numerous other issues, will likely sink him in the general. Most folks aren’t paying attention to what they should pay attention to in regards to Obama, but the gas prices are not something that he can hide. It’s out there every day, day in, day out, and people need to put gas in their cars, and it hurts, more and more. He will pay for that one.

Gas prices sink Obama’s ratings on economy, bring parity to race for White House

By Dan Balz and Jon Cohen, Published: March 11

Disapproval of President Obama’s handling of the economy is heading higher — alongside gasoline prices — as a record number of Americans now give the president “strongly” negative reviews on the 2012 presidential campaign’s most important issue, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Increasingly pessimistic views of Obama’s performance on the economy — and on the federal budget deficit — come despite a steadily brightening employment picture and other signs of economic improvement, and they highlight the political sensitivity of rising gas prices.

Obama impeachment bill now in Congress

Declares president’s use of military without approval ‘high crime, misdemeanor’

Let the president be duly warned.

Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr., R-N.C., has introduced a resolution declaring that should the president use offensive military force without authorization of an act of Congress, “it is the sense of Congress” that such an act would be “an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor.”

Specifically, Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution reserves for Congress alone the power to declare war, a restriction that has been sorely tested in recent years, including Obama’s authorization of military force in Libya.

In an exclusive WND column, former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo claims that Jones introduced his House Concurrent Resolution 107 in response to startling recent comments from Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.

“This week it was Secretary of Defense Panetta’s declaration before the Senate Armed Services Committee that he and President Obama look not to the Congress for authorization to bomb Syria but to NATO and the United Nations,” Tancredo writes. “This led to Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., introducing an official resolution calling for impeachment should Obama take offensive action based on Panetta’s policy statement, because it would violate the Constitution.”
