Who didn’t see this coming?
Those that voted for Obama.

For most of this year, in post after post, we (along with about a million other folks, so we can’t take ALL the credit…) warned that the Obama Administration via Obamacare was coming after Religious Freedom, and was going to try to make it virtually impossible to both practice your faith AND operate your business.

Heck, that’s what that whole “contraception” battle really was. It wasn’t about access to condoms or the ‘pill’; it was about your faith being ruled out-of-bounds when it came to owning and operating your company.

And, yes, I of course heard that I was being “ridiculous”, …numerous times.

Yeah. SureI was.

Fast forward to the “Hobby Lobby” lawsuit that is STILL going on right now.

“If you are able, save for them a place inside of you and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.

Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may or may not have always. Take what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own.

And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind.

The Memorial

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial stands as a symbol of America’s honor and recognition of the men and women who served and sacrificed their lives in the Vietnam War. Inscribed on the black granite walls are the names of more than 58,000 men and women who gave their lives or remain missing. Yet the Memorial itself is dedicated to honor the “courage, sacrifice and devotion to duty and country” of all who answered the call to serve during the longest war in U.S. history.

The Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial Fund, Inc. is the 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization authorized by Congress in 1980 to fund and build the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. Incorporated on April 27, 1979 by a group of veterans led by Jan C. Scruggs, who was wounded and decorated for service in Vietnam, the organization sought a tangible symbol of recognition from the American people for those who served in the war.

By separating the issue of individuals serving in the military during the Vietnam era and U.S. policy carried out there, VVMF hoped to begin a process of national reconciliation. Two members of the U.S. Senate, Charles Mathias (R-Md.) and John Warner (R-Va.), took the lead in Congress to enact legislation providing three acres in the northwest corner of the National Mall as a site for the Memorial.  It was dedicated on Nov. 13, 1982.

…where the hell was I at yesterday.
I took yesterday off.

I completely avoided the internet, and the news.
Sometimes, a person needs a break from all the bullshit, so I just ignored the world for a day.

I won’t take much to catch up on events.

I lounged around in my robe all day and didn’t do shit.
It was a nice break.

…Obama doesn’t have to hide his anti-gun agenda. Those of you that support gun rights and voted for Obama, are morons. You’ve encouraged the bastard.

Elections have consequences.

Remember this?

Obama: We’re working on gun control “under the radar”

This is a quote from Obama in 2011:

On March 30, the 30th anniversary of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan, Jim Brady, who sustained a debilitating head wound in the attack, and his wife, Sarah, came to Capitol Hill to push for a ban on the controversial “large magazines.” Brady, for whom the law requiring background checks on handgun purchasers is named, then met with White House press secretary Jay Carney. During the meeting, President Obama dropped in and, according to Sarah Brady, brought up the issue of gun control, “to fill us in that it was very much on his agenda,” she said.

“I just want you to know that we are working on it,” Brady recalled the president telling them. “We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

I got this via email today:

Obama No Longer “Under the Radar”
Administration pushing UN gun control treaty once again

He’s ba-ack!

It took less than 24 hours. The votes in Florida were still being counted.

But with Obama firmly entrenched for four more years, the U.S. officially went on record this week to support a new round of talks on the UN Arms Trade Treaty.

Whereas he once told Sarah Brady he was pushing gun control “under the radar,” now he can openly launch broadsides against our gun rights.

On Wednesday, the U.S. joined 156 other countries in voting to finalize the treaty in March, 2013. Russia was the only major country to vote against.

Several media outlets have reported that the Obama Administration temporarily withdrew its support for the treaty this year, amid fears that such support could hurt him in the November elections. According to Reuters, “Obama feared attacks from Republican rival Mitt Romney.”

Gun Owners of America worked with Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) earlier this year to get 50 other Senators — some of them Democrats — to send a letter to the President opposing the treaty.

It was this letter, says Reuters, which prompted the Obama Administration to start “derailing the effort back in July.”

But now, with the President firmly ensconced in Washington for another term, the President is going to press hard for this gun control treaty.

So Gun Owners of America will be working hard with the new Senate to oppose the treaty. And should the President sign it — and begin lawlessly implementing the treaty through Executive Orders — GOA will press the House and Senate to begin defunding his efforts.

We’ve done this before … we can do it again … together.

It’s going to be a long, hard battle. And while we know this is going to be a tough economy, we really need you to stand with us and help us have the resources we need to fight these battles.

Thank you for all your help.
