Liberals Booted Out Of Hunter Safety Class


Thirteen-year-old Lane Dunkley, of Tulsa, Oklahoma, was looking forward to going hunting with his grandfather. To get an Oklahoma hunting license, he first had to attend a Hunter Safety Course.

After bringing his grade average up to meet his father’s standards, He and his father traveled to Broken Arrow, Oklahoma for such a class.

At the beginning of the class, the volunteer instructor asked if any had voted for Barack Obama. Lane’s father raised his hand, the instructor railed on about Obama and asked the father son duo to leave, threatening to cancel the course if they did not.

While I am no fan of Obama, gun safety training is no place for such partisanship rhetoric. This instructor missed a golden opportunity to show liberals how serious conservatives are about gun safety and to let them see we are not the crazed Bible Thumpers we are often portrayed as.

Rightfully so, the instructor lost his position swiftly, a decision I support.

Story here.

There is a time and place for all of our partisanship and Obama’s performance is a fair target, like others before him.

Taking it out on a 13 year-old is just wrong, as is including such partisanship in a gun safety course.

Obama, Whiner In Chief


It would appear that a slim majority of Americans chose a ‘whiner’ to lead the nation last November, instead of a man of strength.

Just six weeks into his administration, the New York Times conducted an interview with Obama aboard Air Force One.

They report that Obama said,

Look, I wish I had the luxury of just dealing with a modest recession or just dealing with health care or just dealing with energy or just dealing with Iraq or just dealing with Afghanistan. I don’t have that luxury, and I don’t think the American people do, either.”

President George W. Bush didn’t have that luxury either, after the worst terrorist attack in history occurred shortly after he took office.

President Ronald Reagan didn’t have that luxury either when he assumed office in the midst of a much deeper recession and with America’s spirit all but shattered.

What makes this different though, is a stunning statement coming out of Obama’s mouth, but not included in the main article. It is included however, in the transcript that few read. Obama amazingly stated,

Somebody noted to me that by the time something reaches my desk, that means it’s really hard. Because if it were easy, somebody else would have made the decision and somebody else would have solved it.”

What did he expect, a cakewalk?

During the 2004 campaign, President George W. Bush was lampooned for referring to the Presidency during a debate with John ‘F’in Kerry (who served in Viet Nam), that “It’s hard work.” That statement brought cries of

he is in over his head. Way over his head.”

Don’t expect to see any of these same detractors who endlessly bashed President Bush for such a statement to suddenly realize that it took Bush nearly 4 years in office to make such a statement. It took Obama six weeks!

And, Obama hasn’t had to deal with an attack on America that cost 3,000 American lives!

For 8 years, President George W. Bush led the nation while enduring daily assaults on his leadership, his character, his decisions, his intelligence, his performance and his abilities from the media, politicians and BDS infected citizens. Yet not once do I recall him pointing fingers at others or to previous administrations.

Much like the president who preceded Mr. Bush, known for everything being some else’s fault during his 8 years in office, Obama saw fit to telephone the reporter hours after the interview ended with a “clarification.”

Obama said in part,

I did think it might be useful to point out that it wasn’t under me that we started buying a bunch of shares of banks. It wasn’t on my watch. And it wasn’t on my watch that we passed a massive new entitlement – the prescription drug plan without a source of funding.”

No, but they sure passed the largest spending increase in our history, without a source of funding.

Little wonder that in just 6 short weeks, his “Strongly Approve of” ratings has dropped to 39% from a high of 45% and is dropping as people see weakness, not strength in their choice.
