FIREARMS FOES' FUTILE FLAILING ...
YOUR FUTURE UNDER OBAMACARE …
TO TORTURE OR NOT TORTURE

Half of all mass killings in the United States have occurred since the assault weapon ban expired in 2005, half in the history of the country.” – Bill Clinton, January 9, 2013
    That ... is ... a ... flat-out ... lie.

    He could have consulted the FBI's own crime statistics for the truth. But that, of course, was not a factor since his purpose was/is to encourage the hysteria over gun control for political advantage.

    If the former president wants to discuss mass-murder, perhaps he might dwell upon the Waco slaughter perpetrated by Janet Reno's Justice Department under his own administration.

Consider: The same Obama administration that would like to deny U.S. citizens' right to own a gun is sending billions of dollars' worth of tanks and military aircraft to the Muslim government of Egypt which has openly declared America to be its enemy. Mind you, we're not selling this war materiel to an avowed enemy; we're giving it to them!
    Anything wrong with this picture?

A justice department study finds that teenage victims of violent crime were six times more likely to be attacked with a knife than a gun.

The insightful Burt Prelutsky casts a skeptical eye on the anti-gun madness that masquerades as compassion ...
    “You might even say that insanity is a growth industry. For example, the liberals are tripping all over themselves to pass new gun control legislation. To prove how sincere they are, they have put Joe Biden and Dianne Feinstein in charge. Joe Biden is so dumb that schools have renamed dunce caps in his honor, and Feinstein is such a political hack that even after swearing to get to the bottom of the national security leaks to the NY Times, once she realized the footprints led back to the Oval Office, she never again mentioned it.
    “Even people as stupid as Sen. Patty Murray and Mayor Michael Bloomberg know that federal bans on assault weapons were in place for 10 years starting in the mid-90s and did nothing to diminish gun violence. They also know that Illinois has very strict gun laws in place, and yet over 500 people were gunned down in the streets of Chicago in 2012, making it the murder capital of every locale this side of Syria.”

More on what you can expect from government-run health care …
    We keep an eye on news of Britain's National Health Service because it is the model for Obamacare. The Daily Mail, a major British newspaper, reports on that system's pathway to dying, i.e., being denied medical care that could save their lives.

    Here's the frightening news. Some 60,000 patients are currently on that pathway without being told. Neither they nor their families have been given any voice in the matter. It has been decided that they are going to die; decided by a government bureaucracy of the same sort that will have control of your own fate under Obamacare. Doubt it? Just wait ...

The move “Zero Dark Thirty” about the locating and killing of Osama bin Laden has liberals in a tizzy because it portrays torture of Al Qaeda operatives used to obtain information leading to that result.
    They object to torture on principle, even when confronted with the “ticking clock” scenario under which their own family and countless others will die if information about a terrorist attack is not obtained – quickly.

    I am more inclined to place credence in the quote attributed to Al Capone: “Give me a blowtorch and a pair of pliers and I can get anybody to tell me what I want to know.”

The new Miss America says we shouldn't “fight violence with violence.” Sure. Criminals are always deterred by an offer of coffee and a doughnut.
    Miss America, which number is larger? Your IQ or your bra size?

Don't you just love the group hug all the losers give the winner of any beauty pageant? Especially since we know that every one of them is thinking, “I'd love to strangle that bitch with my bare hands!”

Come to think of it … Did you get a Christmas card from Janet Reno?

Dazzle your friends with this knowledge: Actor Tom Cruise's original name was Thomas Mapother the 4th.  Evidently, somebody decided that wouldn't look good on a theater marquee.

We have a new family in the neighborhood. A few years ago Fish & Game undertook a project to reintroduce the Mexican gray wolf, which had become extinct in the desert to the southwest of our little patch of Arizona.
    The plan was to bring some of the animals back to what had been their native habitat. Apparently nobody told the wolves about the plan, because the second generation decided to see more of the country and began migrating northeastward. One couple located a small cave in the side of the arroyo that runs about fifty yards from where I write these words.

    The wildlife expert from Fish & Game told us that if we left them alone, they'd reciprocate. He also warned us, however, that we should never make eye contact, because the wolves interpret that as a challenge and would likely attack. We co-existed with the wolves while they enjoyed a honeymoon, raised their whelps and eventually departed eastward in the mountains.

    Their den stood vacant for a year or so. Now we have new neighbors. Mr. and Mrs. Coyote have moved in. Coyotes are common in these parts; it's a rare day when they aren't seen. They cause no trouble, but newcomers and snowbirds (part-time winter residents) are advised not to leave small pets outdoors unattended, lest they become lunch for coyotes. Or perhaps the bobcats, desert lynx or the occasional visiting mountain lion. Then there are the eagles, hawks and other hungry critters circling overhead …

    But I digress. While coyotes will never become domestic pets, these newcomers seem cordial enough. We have upward of an acre of native vegetation around the house, through which we created a walking trail. Mr. & Mrs. Coyote seem to approve, because the enjoy strolling the path among the various kinds of cacti, ocotillo, mesquite, etc. They're an object of curiosity on the part of Calvin the cockapoo, but he eyes them warily.

    Visitors who are not knowledgeable about the local wildlife, be advised: Those are not friendly German Shepherds lounging in the shade of the mesquite trees. They are, however, excellent singers.

Conan O'Brien --
    "President Obama's inauguration is coming up. He'll be sworn in with not one, but two Bibles. Relax, Mr. President. We get it. You're not a Muslim. You're overcompensating."

Post Script: Wouldn't it be more appropriate for him to place his hand on a copy of the founding document of his own faith? That would be “The Communist Manifesto” by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.
