Random Roundup is going to my series of articles where there is a bunch of stuff I want to talk about, but don’t feel they belong in separate articles because of length.
Stuff I will be talking about: Super Super Sunday, U.S. President Andrew Jackson and Barack Obama’s nonacquiescence, the upcoming Cambodian-Thai War, and a new Second Amendment bill introduce in the state of Florida.
Super Super Sunday
Yesterday, was indeed, a Super Sunday. Congrats to the Green Bay Packers for a good game.
Sure there was the Super Bowl. Good sports, good food, and good times.
However it was also Ronald Reagan’s Birthday. Honestly, what a fitting way to celerbrate one of the greatest men ever to champion freedom and capitism, than to party with a contest between champions. I am not sure this coincidence or not, but I’d be shocked to learn Reagan wasn’t into football.
U.S. President Andrew Jackson was a right bastard. I can use that word “bastard” here, right? I mean, if I can’t use that word to describe this man, then every other word that I can use falls short. His blatant contempt for the ruling in Worcester v. Georgia (which he said: “They have made their decision, now let them enforce it.”) and his refusal to abide by the ruling, led to the darkest days in American history.
Although not claiming to the high crimes President Jackson committed, Monica Crowley misses the opportunity to link Obama to Nonacquiescence. We need to make this a serious issue. If not now, it needs to come up soon in this election. Does a federal judge really have no power to issue arrest warrents against anyone in the executive branch for contempt? Is the president and the cabinet really that much above the law?
The Fourth Indochina War?
While everyone’s eyes have turn to Egypt, Cambodia and Thailand inch toward war:
The fiercest border clashes in years erupted Friday and Saturday between troops along the border. Sporadic artillery fire in those clashes left at least five people dead – one civilian and one soldier from Thailand and one civilian and two soldiers from Cambodia.
Both sides have blamed each other for the fighting, which also caused minor damage to the Preah Vihear temple near a strip of disputed land that Thai nationalists have seized on as a domestic political issue. …
Tensions between the Southeast Asian nations have risen in recent days because of demonstrations in the Thai capital, Bangkok, demanding that the government oust Cambodians from land near the Preah Vihear temple.
Wonderful. Let’s just hope this isn’t the start of the Fourth Indochina War. But then, with everyone focused on Egypt, why would they care what happens in Indochina?
Florida Senate Bill 402
Senate Bill 402, introduced by state Senator Joe Negron (R-28), has been scheduled to be heard in the Senate Criminal Justice Committee on Tuesday, February 8 at 8:00 a.m.
SB 402 would provide penalties for government officials, local governments and agencies that willfully and knowingly violate the state firearms preemption law. State law [already] prohibits local governments and government agencies from adopting any gun control ordinances or regulations.
There are some who are arrogantly violating the law because there are no penalties currently in the law. SB 402 is a bill to STOP local politicians and governments from violating state law by providing penalties for willful violations.
Excellent. Florida is, once again, on the cutting edge of Second Amendment freedom.

PS: Bit of a programing note, I will be heading to Gov. Rick Scott’s unvailing of his budget this afternoon. This is happening just north of me, so I will try to get video of the event and post it later today.
