Killing Innocents, The Saddest of All Sadness

3 dead, 12 wounded in Belgian day care stabbings (AP) AP - A man went on a rampage at a Belgian day care center Friday, stabbing two young children and a female worker to death and slashing 12 others all over their bodies, officials said.

Here we go again. Two additional adults were there, but not a single one had a firearm to defend these children. The assailant took his time and, when he finished slicing up these innocent children, rode his bicycle to the grocery store where he was arrested. The absolute topper to this horrible incident is the man has a history of mental illness according to local residents. There will be no closure to this for the parents.

I would rather the headline have read, "Deranged Man Armed With Knife Shot And Killed By Daycare Workers Before He Could Harm Any Of The 21 Children In Their Care."

Instead, this will be the announcement, "Will it never end!!!! We need knife serialization legislation now! Knife sales should only be authorized for women and only after a full FBI background check. Parents found with knives in unlocked kitchen drawers should fined into penury and be liable for any cutting event caused by these most dangerous weapons. President Obama needs to find someone to write an Executive Order for him to sign that requires covers with locks on all pointed instruments to include swords, spears, scissors and the pointy heads of elected officials."

I wonder if Cher is going to be invited to sing Gypsies Tramps and Thieves at the opening session of Congress? (No disrespect to honest gypsies, tramps and thieves intended.)

Divorce Tax

The government already has a Marriage Tax that makes it more expensive to stay married and the divorce rate is about 50%. If the government would establish a corresponding Divorce Tax of 1/3 of the total assets of both parties as a counterbalance, the divorce rate would plummet to near zero over night. As a plus, giving government a share in a marriage guarantees somebody is always going to be getting screwed.

Greatly Troubled

January 15, 2009

Dear Senators Shelby, Sessions and Representative Aderholt,
I am greatly troubled by the direction our country has taken and those plotting the course. If America is the "country of the people, by the people, for the people" that Lincoln described at Gettysburg, then why didn't "the people" have "standing" to view, question and determine the validity of documentation and the qualifications of anyone aspiring to govern them before this recent tidal wave of financial and political dishonesty swept over this country and left the damning details buried under a layer of muck? I am further disturbed that the "republican loyal opposition" has surrendered and not bothered to unravel the webs of deceit to get at the truth.

I find no constitutional requirement for political parties, congress, the states or the administration to verify a candidate’s qualifications. It appears this is one of the tasks to be done by the people. For it to be otherwise opens the door to chicanery and tyranny. For the Supreme Court to rule that a citizen has no standing to demand a candidate prove he meets the constitutional requirements for the highest office in the land adds yet another layer to infamy. I don’t recall the decision specifying just who has the responsibility if not the people. Is the electorate obliged to take the word of a liar as proof of eligibility?

The near total disregard for federal statute that seems pandemic in the democrat congress at this time has utterly destroyed their credibility and my respect for that institution. It seems steamroller legislation and in-your-face lawlessness is the order of the day. Must honest citizens just sit down and shut up while the government of the congress, by the congress, for the congress makes a mockery of justice, shreds the Constitution and empties private bank and savings accounts to preserve the political power of the democrat legislature, reward its bankers and plaster over its glaring failures? Is that what our founding fathers would have done, just let lawlessness run unchecked, accept injustice as beyond our control and turn our faces away from political dishonesty and chicanery? Is it? Would they have ceded America to liars, scofflaws, cheats, self preservationists and thieves? There must be no mirrors in Washington DC. I cannot fathom how many in the current administration and anyone taking any office in the coming administration can look themselves in the face after swearing to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic”.

We once fought a bloody war to force the King of England to recognize our rights as free men. We fought another even bloodier war among ourselves to establish the supremacy of God given rights over state’s rights. Have we learned nothing from those conflicts? Must we fight yet another devastating civil war to reestablish the superiority of the electorate over government and reset the limits of government to those which existed at the birth of this nation? Must it be as Thomas Jefferson has said:

"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty.
...And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."

I pray God it isn’t so. If it is, we are more than a century and a half over due and the reckoning will be horrifying. Surely there is another way.

I look to you for leadership. Tell me what I must do to return honesty, decency and lawful, ethical behavior to Congress. What must I do to remove the power of the press and elected officials to destroy with impunity any opposition by lie and innuendo that forever sullies a reputation? What are my options to ensure blatant congressional lawbreakers are investigated, indicted, tried and jailed and not just those members not in power? What can I do to get Congress to abide by the Constitution that I am honor bound to support and defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic? I need specific answers, gentlemen, not empty words or platitudes.

Obama's Big Chance

Israel is threatening to strike the nuclear facilities in Iran. GREAT!!! I can't think of a better opportunity for the head of the Office of the President Elect, Barak Obama, to unleash his great rhetorical and diplomatic skills to give the Iranians hope and change their outlook on Israel. If his diplomacy fails, he can send over "No Nonsense" Hillary to cuss them like the dogs they are and throw lamps, MilCon Feinstein to divert all of their money into her husband's businesses and "Honest Nancy" Pelosi to ethically and transparently undermine their government. Obama will then have enough ugly on the ground in the Middle East to utterly destroy it. The final victory will come when the three Wicked Witches of Washington suddenly strip naked during negotiations in Teheran. Those who do not immediately die by their own hands will pluck out their eyes and suffer mentally scarring nightmares for life.

Tree Ornaments

Everything coming from the incoming Obama administration now is just talk. They want to subjugate us, but don't quite know how without a major rebellion ending with them being tree ornaments.

Cutting The Middleman

Since the government has long been distributing our property to those who didn't earn it we should not be surprised at the rates for property related crimes. It is simply the indiginent, grown impatient with formalities, cutting out the government middleman and dealing directly with the supplier.
