Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) vs. Common Sense

Listen to Sen. Bill Nelson peppering his remarks today with the words “common sense” regarding the gun control bill that will be voted on tomorrow.  C-SPAN covering the floor speeches concerning the up-coming gun control vote.  Nelson prefaced his remarks with an obligatory “I love guns!” story relating his own pro-gun activities like duck hunting.  Yawn.  Then he went on (and on and on) about “common sense” – regarding background checks and restricting magazines to no more than 10 bullets. No more high-capacity magazines. Saying it’s “common sense” to ban Assault Weapons that the Military uses showing his ignorance on “assault weapons” which has been refuted by  weapons experts for the last…..millennium.  Yawn.  “Common sense” this and “common sense” that.  Enough already.  HOW ABOUT the COMMON SENSE in upholding the gun laws already on the books?!  HOW ABOUT the COMMON SENSE in differentiating between GUN CONTROL vs. CRIME PREVENTION.

CRIME PREVENTION only WORKS if you enforce EXISTING GUN LAWS.  Let’s get off the run-away meme GUN CONTROL and replace it with Common Sense, wait for it, CRIME PREVENTION tactics.  Better yet —

SELF-CONTROL not gun control.

What a novel thought.

Stalin would be proud of the leftists employment of semantic engineering to advance their cause.  Saul Alinsky is doing cartwheels over his little-fisted napoleons reframing the real issue – our law enforcement refusing to engage in CRIME PREVENTION.

Yoo-hoo! Uncle Sam, your contrivance slip is showing and you’re blowing smoke

OK, for starters, skeeters might say this is a novice stance to which I reckon I’d agree.  However, I’m surprised the photographer didn’t show smoke coming from his ears as well, the “smoke” looks like it’s been “photo-shopped”. *tricksy titters*  The barrel needs cleaning…   and backfires come from the rear of a car.  Lastly, not much of a lift there. Waz the prez shooting paper dolls off a picket fence?  Hee Haw!

Prezzes Karzai & Obama White House presser and Karzai at Georgetown University

I watched both the joint news conference and Karzai’s address on U.S.-Afghanistan relations and this is my 2 cents:  I was awe-striken by the difference in Karzai’s speech patterns between the 2 events.  While at the podium with Obama at the White House, decked out in his home country regalia, Karzai spoke hesitantly, displaying micro-stutters at beginning of each utterance, giving the impression his English left much to be desired having all the makings of a goat herder , hesitatant, ah ah ah-ing, etc., compared to his speech at Georgetown University.  Hat’s off!  Karzai seemed like a new man. A man whose speech was unhesitant, sure-footed, and very much like a seasoned American.  What’s Up With That????!!!

(I know his family lives in Baltimore…duh!)

Presentation will secure George Will throughout the annuls of History

George Will’s lecture at Washington University on Religion & American Politics (which is airing on C-SPAN2 right now), is perhaps the Presentation of the Century.  I do not exaggerate.  For those who can’t watch it live, you may view it here.   The text can be found here.

For reasons that will become evident to the listener (or reader), George Will’s lecture on Religion & American Politics finally puts to rest the true intent and meaning behind our Constitution from the point of view of the authors, how the “progressive” movement in America took wings under the auspices of President Woodrow Wilson and defines what today’s progressive movement signifies for the future of our nation.  I can’t stress it enough, WATCH THIS VIDEO.  It covers EVERYTHING and will inspire you to new heights.

Welcome, visitors!

To all recent visitors to my site, WELCOME! Welcome to PopUpCommontater’s lair, where the truth is lain bare, sometimes on a dare, and where falsies are rare. *tricksy titters* Some of you are legit. Others, well, you’ll soon have a fit. My eyes are on you, too. -oo- I’m no Lame Cherry, as Cherry is not lame. Me, on the other hand, am a fool; a toothless crybaby who set up shoppe to ed-u-cate the educable – not to taunt those who possess brains the size of a planet to my marble, but just for crikey roos, if your brain’s the size of a planet, why the hay would you settle for earth when the universe is your milieu! a space limitless enough for your limitless brilliance? Why rule this puny planet when you can go conquer your own ball-and-chain mega-orb, Babylon 5, or 6-ish? Why, oh, why expend your mega-intelligence here, in Blandland. Shoot for the stars! populate Mars! Mensa new frontiers! Abandon us, here!

We. are. a. figment. of. your. imagination. We are not worthy of your presence. Surely you have better things to do than rule us unruly thankless anencephalic nonquislings, no? Why can’t we all just get along???

Yes, why? I think we can’t get along because you don’t want a world without war. Or, without power…money…or sex.

Good luck with that.

So to my visitors from France, Belgium, Macedonia, Sweden et al., if you’re drawn to truth, then I receive you with open arms! if you’re here to monitor me, be warned I’m monitoring you. If you come in peace for knowledge then I mean you no harm and you shall find some thing to take away from here to enlarge your own world of ideas.

If you’re here to administer mischief upon me, well then, PuC you!

3rd Presidential Debate 2012 at Lynn University, New World Ordiversity (**,)

Wellll, here we go, Everyman and Woman. The l.a.s.t. debate before the 2012 Debacle Theatre of the Absurd. Here’s what I see on this important night:

1. Lynn University is a subliminal (wink, wink) introduction into global new (new) liberal world order; a phrase I first heard (aside: I think president Obama just blinked for the millionth time..but I could be wrong) on a C-SPAN foreign policy panel recently. The panel included Thomas Friedman, Robert Kagan, and Princeton University Professor John Ikenberry talking about how our next president ought to engage the world, yada yada. The terms “liberal world order” and “liberal international order” were batted about. Euphemisms for “new world order”? Perhaps. But after the introduction and history of Lynn University, I think president Obama will be in his “element”, which is global governance, global economy and globalization. Obama will once again be wearing that ethereal halo. If Obama knows anything, he knows what Lynn University is a launch pad for a new global order – now that it’s beeen “revealed” to the rest of us. TA DA!

O on a roll…want fries with that?

2. Prez-O knows how to work a room. All eyes are on him – looking alive tonight. Six days rehearsing for this debate actually looks good on him, ya know? He remembers everything on the mind-tape he’s been reiterating for 4 years. He hasn’t waivered from the original script which indicates he learns well by rote.
3. Romney actually looks engaged and always has something fresh and new to say. Romney doesn’t do “going off on a tangent” very well though, wouldn’t you agree?
4. Uh oh – Romney supports drones. Drones are a big no-no domestically.

Who’s ahead?

5. Don’t know…but I DO know who is the arse.
6. Too much stuttering and ‘air-brushing” history.
7. I’m noticing how Prez-O keeps saying things like “we have to do (fill in the blank)”, “we have to go forward (into the breach?)”; all these things Prez-O tells Americans all the things “we” need to “do”. Hey! Drop the “WE”, Prez-O. I’m not president but I thinkI’ve got more done in the past 4 years than you have. You keep telling me what needs to be done – but you haven’t done anything but kick out the legs of hard-working Americans.
8. Prez-O says he’s going to “work” the next 4 years. That would be nice. Does it mean he’s going to skip golf, perpetual vacations, so he can “work-in” dailyintel briefings?
9. Thank Goodness. This debate is over.
10. Why do Prez-O and Romney have a love-in at the end of these debates?
11. What do you think they’re whispering in each others ears while shaking hands at the end?

BRAKING NEWS! Are Senate Democrats Passing Bills without Republican Representation..?

Maybe I have this wrong, but Harry Reid and other Democrats are smiling sheepishly while they are voting very quickly.  I believe Republican Senator Kyle objected and left the floor.  Someone following the votes on C-SPAN tonight. I’m in and out and need assistance and shout out a call for vigilance.
