Today in Washington, May 14, 2010
The Elena Kagan nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court is still in the early stages, but problems are emerging. Meet and greets for Kagan completed Day 2 and more one-on-one meetings are expected in the days ahead. Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Scott Brown (R-MA) sounded like supporters of Kagan after one-on-one meetings and had nice things to say about the nominee. Maybe they don’t even know that Kagan | Read More »

Think Progress tries originalism, fails
Think Progress is alarmed that the coming Constitutional crisis over the President’s newly-signed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). I conclude this because it is unusual to see progressives use an originalist argument for Constitutional interpretation. However Ian Millhiser and Think Progress need more practice at it, because the argument they make is not the one they intend. I’ll start with Millhiser’s last point, | Read More »

A New Assault Weapons Ban – It’s what’s for dinner, along with The Constitution.
Article from 25 February…….. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/story?id=6960824 The Obama administration will seek to reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 during the Bush administration, Attorney General Eric Holder said today. “As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons,” | Read More »
We Have a Right to Carry!
Iowa’s attacks on our Constitutional rights are disgusting. Not surprising, the Des Moines Register put out an article the other day stating their poll shows that 50% of Iowans don’t want to change gun laws. Than they go and quote a “big, big” gun person who doesn’t want the gun laws changed. Well. Guess what. YOU don’t dictate what is and is not constitutional. Currently | Read More »

Rush to Judgment?
Words: 630 The Obama Administration, in the person of Eric Holder, Attorney General, doesn’t want Americans to rush to judgment on the terrorist acts of Major Hasan of Fort Hood, yet is launching an unprecedented onslaught upon Americans’ Second Amendment rights, using the very same attack as justification. Holder wants new federal authority to prohibit any person on the Federal Watch List (reported to be | Read More »
Mandating Purchases to Maintain Constitutional Rights
630 Words Recently, after the House passage of its version of Healthcare, HR 3962, Speaker Pelosi affirmed that not only was health care a ‘right’, but Congress has the ability and necessity to punish people who choose not to participate in the government, rather than the Creator, granting this right. There is a 2.5% penalty assessed for those who choose not to, or are unable | Read More »
Gun Show Report Coming Tomorrow
Tomorrow I’ll be attending the NRA National Gun Collector Show & Conference in West Springfield, MA. I’ll be reporting on all of the terrible, horrible, awful people and their families who according to Dianne Feinstein, Chuck Schumer, Deval Patrick, Mike Bloomberg, Eric Holder and many others are destroying the United States of America. You know the ones — the semiliterate, knuckle-dragging evolutionary castoffs and throwbacks | Read More »
Gun Case Puts Focus on Sotomayor & Future Nominees
The Supreme Court announced today that it will decide, in McDonald v. Chicago, whether the Second Amendment applies to state and local gun laws. That puts the focus on the Court’s newest Justice, Sonia Sotomayor, and on President Obama’s future picks for the Court. Gun owners were alarmed by Sotomayor’s nomination to the Court, because of her “extreme anti-gun philosophy” and record on the Second | Read More »
Louisiana’s Second Amendment Holiday
This weekend, residents of Louisiana, the ‘Sportsman’s Paradise’, enjoyed a sales tax holiday on purchases of firearms, ammunition, and hunting-related equipment, like camouflage clothing and ATVs. And for the first time, I’ve joined the ranks of gun owners.
We are the mob, and WE HAVE COME HOME.
We have come home, back to the realization that we, the mob, the PEOPLE of the United States of America, are the sovereign of this country. We, THE PEOPLE, have come home to the fact that we have certain unalienable rights, not all of which are enumerated in the Constitution. We, THE PEOPLE, those you are supposed to represent, have come home to the fact | Read More »
NRA Expresses “Dismay” over Sotomayor Nomination
While a little late and lacking an official position against her, the National Rifle Association has expressed its “very strong concerns” with the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the United States Supreme Court. In a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy and Republican Ranking Member Jeff Sessions, the NRA used particularly harsh language for an organization often hesitant – to say the least | Read More »
