[The Tea Party] has to be the first “Totalitarian” movement in the history of mankind that, if it gets everything it wants… will leave you the hell alone.
Will the extremist Democrat Demagogues in Washington be financially responsible? Will the sun go dark at noon tomorrow? This week the President has reached a new low in demagoguery.
The President demagogues about the rich and their jets while a Democrat controlled House and filibuster-proof Senate passed with President Obama’s signature, the very provisions President Obama is complaining about.
This goes to show how far the extremist Democrat demagogues in Washington go to hold on to their own power instead of doing what is right and responsible.
The extreme spenders in Washington are more concerned about their own power rather than financial responsibility. The height of extremist foot-dragging has come from the President this week.
Rick Hernandez Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and Jim Coats of Pinellas County disgraces to the badge
Here is video explaining how some Sheriffs in Florida intend to infringe upon the rights of law abiding citizens in the State of Florida, if Florida becomes an open carry State. Rick Hernandez, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, and Jim Coats of Pinellas County are disgraces to the badge for making statements like this. Hernandez states that anyone open carrying will be stopped. “When someone is walking down the street with an exposed gun, nobody knows if they’re legal or not legal. Do they have a permit? Maybe they do maybe they don’t.” No mention of probable cause. There are millions of people driving in Florida every day no one knows if they are legal or legal. Do they have a license? Maybe they do, maybe they don’t. Imagine if you could be stopped in your car just to verify your license? Sounds like a police state.
Jim Coats goes so far as to say “rights need to be granted in a responsible way.” Sheriff Coats, I think you have the United States confused with a Fascist country, perhaps Hitler’s Germany. In the United States, rights are not granted to the people. Rights are retained by the people. Privileges are granted, rights are not. Hernandez ends with “If we think that people carrying guns openly makes you safer, I think that is a bad assumption.” If we are operating on assumptions, I think Sheriffs like these two individuals carrying guns openly makes the entire State of Florida less safe.
Sheriff Rick Hernandez says it will be “very, very cumbersome, and very, very scary” if Florida becomes open carry. “Very cumbersome”? Sorry, Sheriff, if doing your job is “cumbersome” perhaps you should find a different profession? We wouldn’t want to have our rights make your job more difficult now would we. He goes on to state that “our stress level is very high at this point.” Well excuse the public for making you do your job. You don’t like the stress level? Pick another profession.
I do not know who is hiring these Sheriffs and police officers in Florida, but the quality and caliber of the men involved is so low as to be disappointing to anyone in the State.
Remember: when seconds count, the police are just minutes away. Exercise your rights or lose them.
I can see good in anything I see, even if it’s bad or not too good. I can see a goodness of potential, the truth of what it is I’m viewing.
Meatloaf’s a good guy, he just went off the handle. … I’m a fan of everything. I can see good in anything I see, even if it’s bad or not too good. I can see a goodness of potential, the truth of what it is I’m viewing.

“There’s a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say to FOX and to MSNBC: ‘Out. Off. End. Goodbye.’ It would be a big favor to political discourse; our ability to do our work here in Congress, and to the American people, to be able to talk with each other and have some faith in their government and more importantly, in their future.” Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV)
1. FoxNews and MSNBC are not on the airwaves, consequently the FCC has no jurisdiction.
2. Senator Jay Rockefeller must have missed at least part of the First Amendment to the Constitution, not to mention the entire Constitution itself.
What are the people of West Virginia thinking electing a clown like Rockefeller? He is right, without a press that is able to publish the truth, the Federal Government’s big-government, power-hungry politicians, would be able to ‘get away’ with a lot more. The First Amendment protects the country against the likes of Rockefeller.
The News & Observer of Raleigh, North Carolina reports that at least in some cases that the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation (NC SBI) lab has “ignored evidence” and “twist reports and court testimony when the trust threatened to undermine their cases.” ”At the bureau’s crime lab, agents charged with using science to solve crimes have hidden test results or withheld notes that suggested the opposite of findings presented to the courts.”
The police anywhere must be above reproach incidents like this impact individual defendants and the trust that police officers have to rely upon. The North Carolina SBI should be embarrassed and must take steps to immediately clean up the mess. Power corrupts. North Carolina SBI Officers that took part in this should be charged and in jail themselves. Behavior such as this is completely unacceptable. Read the full story.
In a somewhat related story, the science of DNA test statistics has come under scrutiny. In part, the article states:
“The DNA analyst who testified in Smith’s trial said the chances of the DNA coming from someone other than Jackson were 1 in 95,000. But both the prosecution and the analyst’s supervisor said the odds were more like 1 in 47. A later review of the evidence suggested that the chances of the second person’s DNA coming from someone other than Jackson were closer to 1 in 13, while a different statistical method said the chance of seeing this evidence if the DNA came from Jackson is only twice that of the chance of seeing it if it came from someone else.”
For the details, please see here, first they take your guns, then they take your rights.. When you cede control of your life to the socialist, fascist, power-hungry politicians, they want to control every part of your life, all for a good cause of course.
CNN’s John King said to Axelrod that a job offer for Rep. Seststak “marches up into the gray area, perhaps into the red area of a felony. It is a felony to induce somebody by offering them a job.” Sestak has alleged on multiple occasions this year that he was offered a job to refrain from running. Gibbs has acknowledged that such conversations have taken place (“Lawyers in the White House and others have looked into conversations that were had with Congressman Sestak, and nothing inappropriate happened.” and”Whatever conversations have been had are not problematic.” On CBS’ “Face the Nation” Gibbs said, “I’m not going to get further into what the conversations were. People who looked into them assure me they weren’t inappropriate in any way.”).
The offer would appear to violate federal criminal laws, including 18 U.S.C. 600, which prohibits promising a government position “as consideration, favor, or reward for any political activity” or “in connection with any primary election or political convention or caucus held to select candidates for any political office.” Likewise 18 USC 595 prohibits a federal official from interfering with the nomination or election for office and Section 18 USC 211 says that you can’t accept anything of value in return for hiring somebody in the Federal government.
Either the Democrat candidate for the Senate has lied multiple times or a felony has taken place. One would think that the media would care to investigate and a Special Prosecutor should be appointed.
Axelrod replied to CNN’s King that “If such things happened they would constitute a serious breach of the law, and when the allegations were looked into there is no evidence of such a thing.” And when Ted Bundy was asked to look in the killings of which he was accused, he found that there was no evidence that he had been involved. Thankfully other people investigated Bundy. We don’t give the people accused of a crime the responsibility and authority to investigate the allegations themselves. Hence the Special Prosecutor.

The definition of IRONY:
U.N. Elects Iran to Commission on Women’s Rights … “handing a four-year seat on the influential human rights body to a theocratic state in which stoning is enshrined in law and lashings are required for women judged ‘immodest.’”
On the 235th anniversary of one of the greatest calls for liberty – “Give me Liberty, or give me Death!” - the President of the United States signed one of the biggest curtailments of human freedom in United States history. The irony may have been lost on Washington leadership today, and perhaps the quotation from Washington, DC, today would have been “Liberty or death? Why so extreme? Screw the liberty, just give me health insurance!”
Remember this quotation, it is all the more relevant today:
“It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace — but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775
