THE ALPHABET GAME AND KILLER SPEECHES

One of the things President BO (the child president) does is to speak without either thinking or without doing proper research on his topic.

He does it a lot, and seems not to care at all.

In the same sentence he called the Marines a corpse when he meant corps (they ARE two different things, you know).

Now he has done it again.

At the annual National Urban League convention in New Orleans, referring to the theater massacre, he said, “A lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals,” Mr. Obama said . “They belong on the battlefield of war, not on the streets of our cities.”

There used to be a deacon in our church who frequently said, "I'm hearing a lot of people say...." then he would make a statement that he, himself, believed, but that he had really not heard anybody say.

"A lot of gun owners..." is exactly that same kind of statement.

President BO (the child president) probably doesn't know any gun owners, or if he does, he does not know that they own guns. But since he believes his statement to be true, the facts about it are irrelevant to him.

If, as PBO(tcp) says, AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, they do NOT belong in the hands of US soldiers, because US soldiers do not use AK-47s. They use M16s.

The Colorado theater killer James Holmes wasn’t using an AK-47, he was using an AR-15, the semi-automatic, civilian version of the M16.

As far as I know, all law abiding gun owners believe AK-47s shouldn’t be in the hands of criminals.

Obama also spoke of Columbine and Virginia Tech, both gun-free campuses where students were left as sitting ducks before they were mowed down.

Remember to that the Second Amendment isn’t about the American hunting and shooting heritage, it’s about the people protecting themselves from the government. It's also about defending yourself rather than building the kind of police state necessary to obviate the need for self-protection.

President BO (the child president) also spoke of pushing gun control without the help of that pesky thing called Congress.

On this point he is correct. Last summer the Department of Justice, the same department responsible for funneling 2500 AK-47s and .50 caliber rifles to the Mexican drug cartels (criminals) through Operation Fast and Furious, pushed through a new long gun reporting measure for Southwest border gun dealers in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

So let me ask you: If you were president of the United States, the smartest man ever to be president, a former Constitutional lecturer, a former Harvard Law Review editor and the most credible man to hold the office in history, wouldn't you want to get your facts straight before opining on the matter that could remove all vestiges of that credibility from your speech?

Or would you just LIKE speaking like an amateur?

There are two ways to handle this. Either send jackbooted thugs to kick down every door in the country and seize 300 million weapons (always a leftist favorite), or conduct a government buyback program, where semiautomatic weapons can be exchanged for black powder flintlocks.

We know gun bans don't work, because guns were banned in that theater. So, even if the killer had nothing but a single action revolver, he still would have done great damage because there STILL would have been nobody who could shoot back at him.

Ah, but that point requires a sixth sense that liberals do not possess -- common sense.

LR: What? Gun bans don't work? Why I thought they were just like Prohibition.

Oh, yeah...that didn't work, either.

Romney has been in Great Britain, Israel and Poland, and clearly the campaign has entered a new phase of a discussion and debate about America's foreign policy.
At least, Romney has a foreign policy. Obama has NONE! If I'm not mistaken, Obama is the only American President who has not visited Israel in his entire tenure.
As for Syria, the Obama administration is obvious reluctant to get involved, but he didn't wast a nanosecond getting involved in Egypt and in Libya. .. Romney was NOT afraid to say that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel, and we all know what he meant by that!

Romney described Obama's foreign policy as an an appeasement and has said that Obama has been apologizing for America, something that HE will never do. And as an American and as a Veteran, I applaud him for that.

President Downgrade really struggles with his words.
He really shows his true sophomoric self when he goes off Prompter.

See how bland and boring the comment section on your blog is when you start banning liberals?

Just a bunch of nodbots clinging to their guns and religion, parroting Fox News and stewing in their own ignorance, hatred and paranoia.

FREE DUCKY! FREE DUCKY! FREE DUCKY!

Joe said...

XO; "FREE DUCKY! FREE DUCKY! FREE DUCKY!"

I prefer bland and boring to snarky, ad hominous, irrelevant and lifeless.

But to show tht I am a man of good will, if Ducky will send me $121,000.14 I will reinstate him.

Even if it's government money.

Xavier Onassis said...

Joe - "I prefer bland and boring to snarky, ad hominous, irrelevant and lifeless."

Of course you do. Because "bland and boring" is what the conservative, right wing evangelicals think our life on earth should be.

Boring, without earthly pleasure, without fun, always deferring all rewards to some fictional afterlife.

Atheists know better. Life is all we have. We have to live it while we have it. Otherwise we're just wasting it.

Lone Ranger said...

Liberals, always defending the indefensible. Ducky just proved that immaturity and alcohol should not be mixed. XO proves that alcohol is not necessarily needed in the mix.

Darth Bacon said...

XO proves nothing but showing the world what an idiot acts like!

Joe said...

LR: "XO proves that alcohol is not necessarily needed in the mix."

That's not clear.

DB: "...what an idiot acts like!"

Maybe it's no act.

Taking all guns away will not stop violent crime. Those who want to kill, will.

The borders and coastlines are not secure. So just like prohibition....weapons will make their way into the US and into the hands of the bad guys first. Think about how many people cross the southern borders every day. Do people think they won't bring guns because they're banned here? I live in AZ. A 13 yr old brought his cousin's (who was in this country illegally) gun to my son's school, just to show it off

I don't know any gun owner that would give up their guns freely.

Mitt Romney made a comment about how Timothy Mcvey Killed 168 people using fertilizer. Do libs want to ban fertilizer too?

Here is something else to think about. A man fills two water bottles up with gasoline. He enters a movie theater and pours the gasoline out near the exits and maybe pours some on a row of seats or just pours them on the floor and it runs the length of the floor. He waits a few seconds to allow the fumes to mix with the air. He gets up lights a match.

Prior to him entering the theater he takes a couple 2x4s and wedges the exit doors using only the wall on the outside of the exit. Most people wouldn't even think twice about seeing a 2x4 in a alleyway behind the theater.

Point is, if someone is intent on killing, they will find a way.

I also find it interesting that violent crime goes up in places where guns are banned. http://www.justfacts.com/guncontrol.asp
