Obama's suggestion for Preventative Detention

Posted by – 8/15/09

…because of course we have to prevent future crimes if we know they’re going to occur.

It’s good to see that some lefties like Rachel Maddow are sticking to their principles rather than following the sycophantic celebration of all that is Obama.

Judge throws out case challenging Obama's citizenship

Posted by – 10/26/08

I agree that this case should’ve been thrown out, but not on the grounds any harm from an ineligible candidate is “too vague and its effects too attenuated to confer standing on any and all voters.” Considering such an event would be an egregious violation of the Constitution, I’d say having an ineligible candidate for the Presidency actually take the office would give any voter the grounds to challenge it.

SCOTUS upholds 2nd Amendment

Posted by – 6/26/08

Wow. That was a close one. In a 5-4 ruling, the Supreme Court struck down the unconstitutional gun ban in our nation’s capital.

As I’m watching CNN, I’m becoming more and more convinced by the media bias. Instead of reporting on any kind of actual statistical facts that surround the presence of guns in a community vs. a community where guns are banned, they bring on a Chicago police officer whose son was killed around Mother’s day as he went shopping for a gift. Heartbreaking story, I know.

And I don’t mean to dimish the man’s pain at all, but let’s look at the whole news story here. Why did CNN bring him on and conveniently leave out any kind of data on the subject? They seem real quick to report data on anything that upholds their agenda, but in line with classic the current strain of liberalism, they’re right at home with using people’s emotions to change their opinion when facts don’t support the agenda.

Listen, it’s real sad when people die at the hands of a gun. But people: more often than not, it’s not the gun that’s the problem. It’s almost never an accidental shooting. Only in the rare case is it not intentional. In that light, I’d submit that the perpetrator would use whatever means they have. If they don’t have a gun, they’ll use a knife. And in Australia, they’ve banned those as well. Hasn’t really curbed the violence though. (Hell, even Australia’s Herald Sun Times has better coverage on the ruling than our own media.)

Quite rarely do we see stabbings in America. And liberals, being quite short minded as usual, are far too comfortable in their simple math. Lots of murders + Guns being used = Guns are the problem. Get rid of the guns, they philosophize, and you get rid of the problem. What’s the real problem? Lots of people who use violence to solve problems + A Gun Ban = Criminals move on to other means to weaponry.

I’m glad the Supreme Court upheld the Second Amendment. It means I can stop arguing with gun control loonies who have this misguided notion that if you deprive criminals of their weapons, they’ll just be sad and give up.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the only proven deterrent to violent crime is a well-armed public.

“Undoubtedly some think that the Second Amendment is outmoded in a society where our standing army is the pride of our nation, where well-trained police forces provide personal security and where gun violence is a serious problem…That is perhaps debatable, but what is not debatable is that it is not the role of this court to pronounce the Second Amendment extinct.” – Justice Scalia

The SCOTUS Decision on Gitmo

Posted by – 6/13/08

I’d love to comment, to at least have something to say, but when I went to read about the decision in the news, I’m afraid all I found was a slew of editorialists masquerading as unbiased journalists. On both sides. So instead of adding to all the mucky muck, give me some time… I’m actually going to read the majority and minority opinions. Race you!
