No Ma’am Marine Vet Says No to Feinstein

Trying to get this guy on the show. Hope he’s real. His letter to Senator Diane Feinstein

Senator Dianne Feinstein,

I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government’s right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma’am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.

I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.

I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.

I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.

We, the people, deserve better than you.

Respectfully Submitted,

UPDATED! Oregon’s Bow Tie Blumenauer "Wows" Twitterverse With Style Sense During Fiscal Cliff Debate

AN UPDATED BLAST FROM THE PAST BELOW!

Wish I’d seen it for myself, but according to the Twitterverse Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenauer made quite an impression on the nation in a floor speech last night about the fiscal cliff:

And the mockery continued as Blumenauer made an appearance on Washington Journal.


  
Earl loves his bike and bike pin. And he also loves his SUV as you see here from the pics taken in 2008 by Jim Karlock. Blumenauer was leaving a town hall on global warming when this was taken. Good times. See Jim’s original post here.

Only in Washington Is a HUGE TAX INCREASE Considered a Tax Cut

From the WSJ:

The Senate-White House compromise grudgingly passed by the House is a Beltway classic: The biggest tax increase in 20 years in return for spending increases, and all spun for political purposes as a “tax cut for the middle class.”

And from a 5th Listener who has it exactly right:

The federal government has already gone over the spending cliff – to the tune of $16 trillion. Spending is the problem. Debt is the problem. Deficit is the problem. When Obama, Biden, Reid, and Pelosi say they want a “balanced” approach that includes “more revenue,” they are reminding us that they want “more revenue” (higher taxes). And the only reason for higher taxes (“more revenue”) is to support “more spending.” We are already over the spending cliff. The solution is less spending and reduced cost of government. And “less spending” does not require “more revenue.”

Which brings us to this observation by Winston Churchill:

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”
