And the hits, they just keep coming ….here’s a round up of votes on 9 proposed amendments so far:
Ahhhh the sound of teeth gnashing, and rending of yards of expensive clothes as the staff at the Washington Compost wail in anguish is ….soothing sweetness to my ears.
7 failed – 2 passed.
Background checks failed, 54-46
No registration for you !! Shades of the soup Nazi…..
Republican gun legislation failed 52-48
It would increase funding for criminal prosecution, school safety, and mental health resources and create a task force to go after felons who fail background checks. It would also criminalize trafficking and straw purchasing and increase the penalties for them.
Don’t misunderstand me here – I’m glad almost ALL of it failed, but if we were going to get this crap shoved down our throats – this would have been the easiest to choke down. Despite that, the Donk’s seem to have gotten a sudden and severe case of cut your nose of to spite your face – this was actually backed by the NRA. Sore looser syndrome anyone?
Gun trafficking failed 58-42
Erik Holder – Call Your office….ICE and Customs called – they want to know when they can start shipping AR-15?s to Pedro the Narco Mule again….
Expanding concealed-carry failed 57-43
Another case of Nose cutting by the Donks. And of course one RINO – Kirk. IL With Friends like Kirk – who needs Democrats?
Assault weapons ban failed 40-60
Worst showing of the entire boondoogle — Ouch!! If Diane Frankenstein wasn’t so well embalmed – she’d be icing down bruises for a week…..
Expanding veterans’ gun rights failed 56-44
Yes because obviously those right wing death beast people that have given so much to this country – just can’t be trusted.
A ban on high-capacity magazines failed 46-54
I’ve never quite wrapped my head around this whole ‘high capacity’ mess – what is the message here – 20 Rd Magazines outlawed – but 15 – Rd…that is okay because what? 15 Dead Kids is so much better than 20?
Protecting gun owners’ privacy passed 67-30
Yes indeed I think the Donk’s, or at least some of them, might have seen the light here, because should leftist rags continue to demand to publish law abiding armed citizens private information and home addresses thus turning them into targets for goblins looking to avoid background checks to get their grubby paws on a firearm – is eventually going to piss those same folk off enough that – the leftist rag in question might suddenly have a bad fire or something ….Jus’ sayin’ ….and then who’s gonna carry Obama’s water for him….?
Mental health funding passed 95-2
Nothing to do with Gun control – But okay call it a all too obvious case of “But But….we had to do SOMETHING” !!11!!
So Mr. pResident – Want to come trotting out before the cameras again to wail some more?? Or maybe you should just sit down – man up, shut up, and admit – the 2nd Amendment and the people that support it – much to your dismay – ain’t going down quietly…..in fact Barry O …we ain’t going down at all. Our liberty will NOT be eroded…one step further. Suggest you think about that a bit….
“What could POSSIBLY go wrong with my vote to allow SB 679 to be opened for Debate?!?”
That’s the prevailing wisdom that Bob Corker R-TN seems to be espousing after being brought to task for his recent defection to the Democrats on S – 679.
S-679 as I mentioned on the below post is the latest ‘Gun Control” Legislation brought to the floor of the Senate by Harry Reid D-NV
Corker and 15 other Republicans, or RINOS as they are being called now a days, jumped ship and voted to allow the bill to proceed forward for debate.
After the vote I kept an eye on Senator Corkers Facebook page and predictably, it lit up with comments ranging from bitter disappointment with this vote all the way to calls for his recall. On Friday, possibly realizing the amount of anger over his vote - Senator Corker’s (I am assuming) staff posted this on his FB page:
There’s a lot of confusion out there. Here are the facts: Senator Corker is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and has an “A” rating from the NRA. http://1.usa.gov/ZlPS1J His vote Thursday was to allow S. 649 to be debated and amended and was not scored by the NRA. There will be another vote next week (which will also require 60 votes for passage) to allow a final vote on the bill. Senator Corker has said he will filibuster any legislation that violates our Second Amendment rights.
Browsing through those comments I think I just found the fabled 90% the Main stream media is touting as “for gun control”…but they got it wrong. Easily 9o% plus of the comments on Senator Corker and Senator Alexander pages are Pro Gun and they are in a word …outraged.
Nice try at Damage Control Senator – it didn’t work. Just to be even more of a thorn in your side – I’ve already called the NRA and they are on notice that if your A rating is not withdrawn IMMEDIATELY That they can rest assured any further donations from this life time member are done.They’ll be panhandling in the back alleys of D.C. with the bums and crack whores before I give them one red cent. That gos for you too Lamar Alexander.
I don’t care if it takes 60 or 6 Million votes to pass this bill Senator, the fact of the matter is you both are ON RECORD as voting for a bill that has put the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution directly in the cross-hairs of the very people you were elected to oppose. The Liberal Democrats. You have BOTH ran for office on a promise to the people of TN to protect the 2ND amendment rights of your respective districts. You lied. You will be held accountable.
But hey, thanks too, for further alienating your voters by telling us we’re ‘confused” Really, Let me dispel any confusion on YOUR part Mr. Corker – I’m not confused. Not the least little bit. I know a liar when I see one.
But to help dispel any confusion YOU might have – My rights are NOT up for Debate – Not by Bob Corker, Not By Harry Reid, Not by Lamar Alexander, not by any of you fools in DC playing political games. Your vote on S 649 Was and will remain a clear cut case of ignoring the wishes and will of your constituents in TN and I fully intend – no matter HOW you vote moving forward on this legislation – to give my political contributions to your challenger, and vote against you and your cohort Mr. Alexander. You two political clowns have betrayed the people of TN for the last time if I have anything to say about it.
Does the word PRINCIPLE mean anything to you Mr. Corker? Look it up, maybe it will clear up YOUR confusion.
Sadly? Blue Collar Muse a fellow TN Conservative Blogger I’ve dealt with in the past seems to think this vote or behavior of Mr. Corkers and the other 15 Republicans is okay. It’s not Muse. Not even remotely.
I disagree with both you and Senators Corker and Alexander. Vehemently. And Here’s why.
And the GOP is scratching their heads and wondering why when they call I burst into gales of laughter as they peddle for donations. Really? Here’s your answer….NO!
16 Republican Senators just crossed the aisle to allow S-649 to proceed for debate. S-649 Is the latest and greatest Gun Control bill to attempt to infringe on the right to keep and bear arms.
Kelly Ayotte (N.H.)
Richard Burr (N.C.)
Saxby Chambliss (Ga.)
Tom Coburn (Okla.)
Susan Collins (Maine)
Bob Corker (Tenn.)
Jeff Flake (Ariz.)
Lindsey Graham (S.C.)
Dean Heller (Nev.)
John Hoeven (N.D.)
Johnny Isakson (Ga.)
Mark Kirk (Ill.),
John McCain (Ariz.)
Pat Toomey (Pa.)
Roger Wicker (Miss.)
Lamar Alexander (Tenn.)
Of course the usual RINO suspects like McCain and Collins are there, or wishy washy Graham from SC, but my home state of TN Senators are in RED – To say I’m disgusted with both of them is akin to saying Nuclear Weapons go “bang”.
This bill should have been DOA – But that’s not the worst of it – by crossing the aisle they also threw Senators Paul, Cruz and others under the wheels of the RINO Tyranny Train. Nice job you guys are veritable day Brutus’s – I really have nothing but utter and complete contempt for you people.
Yes, Yes, I know it doesn’t mean the bill is going to become law- that’s not the point. The point is this thing shouldn’t have even been on the floor of the Senate in ANY Guise to begin with. It’s a crap bill and piss poor legislation from the word go. End. Stop. The Government has 300 plus laws on the books to “control guns” why not try to enforce some of those laws why don’t we?
NOT ONE MORE LAW THAT INFRINGES ON THE 2nd AMENDMENT UNTIL THE ONES ALREADY ON THE BOOKS ARE BEING ENFORCED DAMN IT!!
Nothing in these so called “common sense measures” will;
- Stop the James Holmes and Adam Lanza’s of the world from getting weapons and shooting up a gun free zone, as they do NOTHING To stop these sort of mental defects from obtaining weapons.
- Stop Violent Criminals and Gangs from turning the South Side of Chicago, Detroit, LA and other urban centers into free fire war zones.
- Protect one single child – as the bill adds almost nothing to the School Security programs that are needed.
What they will do however is Infringe on Law Abiding gun owners rights, they are intrusive and overbearing, and have mechanics in place that will lead to registration.
Thanks for selling out the Constitution Mr. Corker, you too Mr. Alexander. I’ll make a point of it to make double damn sure come election time I do everything I can to remind people just how traitorous you two baboon asses really are.
The L.A. Times hasn’t ever impressed me as being overly objective – okay that’s the nice way to put it – I wouldn’t use it to line a bird cage for fear my bird would catch liberalitis or some other strange malady that would turn the poor beast into a drooling welfare leech. Wait – I don’t have a bird…never mind.
Having said that it’s a tough situation for me to actually wade through the L.A. Times website and stomach the stupid found there. Alas – know thine enemy and all that …So I saw a link somewhere – and I clicked, and I read, and my stomach churned ….
Reading the following article by George Skelton I simply had to discuss this a bit further.
Here’s a link – fair use and all that – credit for the article goes fully to the L.A. Times
Now for some of the things said in that article.
The nutty notion that a citizen can be heavily enough armed to fight off the government went up in smoke near Big Bear Lake.
80 Million or so gun owners in the country – a majority that believe in the 2nd Amendment and that it’s purpose is to arm the citizenry against tyrannical despots are “nutty” – Well, we’re certainly off to a “respectful and civil” exchange of ideas here now aren’t we George? But let’s continue on with Mr. Skelton’s screed…it only goes downhill from here.
This may sound crazy to most normal people, but there are some obsessed gun owners — although a minority, surely — who believe they need to arm themselves to perhaps combat government oppression.
Well – if it sounds “crazy to most normal people” then is just MUST be – after all who better to know “crazy and normal” then some pampered spoiled beach rat masquerading as a “journalist” that lives in the land of crazy – the land of fruits and nuts – California. Sure.
Guess we’re right back to that civility issue – that one issue liberals are always squatting and sh*tting on the carpet like ill mannered baboons over but refuse to practice in real life. See Mr. Skelton – two can play that game – I’m “crazy and obsessed” and you’re a ill mannered Baboon that leaves feces on people’s carpets…shall we continue? Let’s!
Mr. Skelton, the carpet defiling baboon, then goes on to list a variety of so called “E-mail comments” he has gotten from those “Nutty Crazy” types that believes the 2nd Amendment is about much more then hunting. He goes on to list half a dozen supposed E-mails, none of which look very “nutty” to me – such as:
From John, referring to the 2nd Amendment: “We have that right, primarily, so we can defend ourselves against the tyranny of government. The Constitution didn’t provide for gun ownership so we could shoot turkeys at Thanksgiving.
Johns right , I fail to see the crazy here – But we’re not done yet folks – as sure as the sun rises in the east Ol’ Mr. Skelton has to trot out the race card – with another “E-mail”
Then there are the right-wing racists, like Pam:
“When that redistributionist Marxist [deleted] Obama decides to take away decent people’s homes and businesses and give them to the black criminal gangbangers, the garbage illegal aliens [deleted] and the rest of the low information welfare/food stamp crowd who voted for him, we who have our guns can meet them at the door, loaded and ready.”
Like I said the sun also rises in the East – So until I see the E-mail and that means with SMTP address and IP’s Mr. Baboon – Er I mean Skelton – You’re pushing the limits of credibility here. Seriously; because you said someone named Pam wrote this racist rant – doesn’t make it so. Why heck, I can easily claim someone named “George” sent me an E-mail too …
Then there are the carpet staining baboons like George:
“When President Obama speaks – I get so excited I tinkle in my man panties a little. When he tries to re-distribute from the rich to help the poor I get all warm and fuzzy and my heart goes pitter-patter-pitter-patter…gosh! Obama makes me so happy. When Obama says he’s going to take away everyone guns I just have to go poo on some right wing racists’ carpet. “
Okay- onto some more of this so called objective journalistic masterpiece of a baboon er, damn-it, I mean Mr. Skelton’s After much hang wringing about right wing crazies and racists – Mr. Skelton finally comes to an answer:
And there are many like Bryan, who asked: “What if the German Jews had been well armed” against Hitler?
My answer: They would have been slaughtered by the Nazi Panzer divisions.
Think so Mr. Skelton? – Perhaps you’re right, but your little snide answer probably isn’t correct – at least not when you take various other excerpts from history. Perhaps you’d care to explain why one of those same vaunted Nazi Panzer divisions like the 6th was ground to a halt in places like Elsenborn Ridge during the Battle of the Bulge against a force they out numbered vastly with armor – the Allied Infantry, the 99th infantry division to be specific, fought them to a stand still. The 99th Infantry Division as a whole, was outnumbered five to one, but inflicted casualties in the ratio of eighteen to one. Do you know the main difference between a Panzer division and an INFANTRY division? I’m guessing not. But basically it’s tanks vs. ground troops, and in this case like many others those ground troops prevailed. Against tanks.
Or maybe we should discuss Afghanistan and the Soviet Union? How an armed populace of “crazy and obsessed” people drove a nation that at that time was considered a superpower out of it’s borders. A nation that could wield Jet’s Tanks, Massive artillery pieces and entire armies of soldiers. Probably shouldn’t tho – it’ll make you look even more like a howling baboon if we do.
Continuing on, he guardedly admits but not really, at this point that perhaps there’s some validity to those crazy types argument with this snide little dismissal:
OK, enough. Suffice that too many people think that private citizens should be sufficiently armed to take on not only the local police, but the Army the Navy, the Marines and even the Air Force.
Once he blithely dismisses any actual examples of an armed resistance being able to stand up to the weight of the all powerful state he is so in love with – he launches this gem.
They hang onto the words in the 2nd Amendment about the people’s right to bear arms “being necessary to the security of a free state,” but ignore the part about the militia being “well regulated.”
No, sorry, but we don’t ignore a single word of the 2nd – we damn well know what it says – after all – we’re the ones that are completely “obsessed” with it now aren’t we? The ‘militia” is US you ignorant sand flea infested baboon. Look up the meaning of the word and maybe you’ll get an idea of what a militia is – hint its not the National Guard.
Next is this stinking pile of baboon droppings:
I’m certainly no constitutional lawyer, but it should be obvious to everyone by now that the right to bear arms can be “infringed.” We’re not allowed to bear bazookas. Or machine guns. No automatic rifles. What’s mainly at issue these days are semi-automatics — so-called assault weapons — and mega-magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
Yeah don’t say – Oh the ignorance in that line just makes me want to – well grab my handy bazooka and launch one right through this guys front door. Pity I don’t have one… No one – not a single gun owner, not the NRA GOA, CCRKBA, None of them are advocating for such, All us crazy gun owners understand there is a difference between weapons the US Military employes and what we use. It’s, as you said, obvious, however that still does not allow the Federal Government to strip us even of more arms. Nor should we allow them to do so. Period.
And to up the stupid quotient even further, Here we go again:
We hire cops to protect us against criminals and crazies. The idea that we should allow citizens to be as well armed as the police — and, unfortunately, too many are armed better — is simply idiotic.
Idiotic huh? More civility, this guy’s a fountain of the stuff – so I’ll return it in kind: And perhaps you drooling half wit liberal baboons’ ass you missed the fact that the SCOTUS ruled a ways back that the PD has no legal requirement to protect us? They got all the shiny toys all the scary stuff – fully auto rifles, huge inventories of weaponry – armored vehicles – and they have no obligation under the the law to lift one single finger to “protect us”. Maybe that gives you a warm and fuzzy – but all the same – Thanks, I’ll cling to my guns in the mean time.
And in closing he says this:
The citizens’ militia needs to be better regulated.
Guns for hunting turkeys and skeet shooting, yes.
Guns for protection against bad guys, sure.
Guns to overthrow tyranny, irrational. That’s why our founders gave us the ballot box.
And to that I say, 50 Million Americans rejected you and your man-love bunny Obama’s argument Nov 6th 2102. And as you and your leftist cadres insanely continue to push to strip us of our rights – some have started to think that ballot box ain’t working so well these days – you do know what the 4th box is don’t your Mr. Skelton? The one that has to be used when the ballot box fails? The last one in the list?
Irrational – Crazy – Nutty – Racist – all great ways of demeaning honest Americans that intend on guarding our civil rights – you got them all in there no doubt. The only thing irrational here is your drooling and psychotically needy love affair with the all powerful state yet the utter mistrust of your fellow citizens.
George you get my newly minted baboons’ ass award for the week. Congratulations.
