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.

The ‘Castro Hour’ is about to begin! Grab a chair in the village square..and BE there!

I call it the ‘Castro Hour’ in dis(honor) of Fidel hisself, for all his speeches, sermons and harangues held for hours and days at a time, in the open, village square, perpetually, standing-room only*.  Why?  Because I couldn’t find a TV station that wasn’t showing the ‘Castro Hour’, that’s why!  And I thought the networks had come to their prez-O fatigue moment last year, not feeling compelled to carry every one of his appearances..several times..every day. There for awhile.  Better get those seats, folks, the name-calling begins now.  This is the time when everyone attending is announced so it will be known for eons this-or-that senator, this-or-that representative, this-or-that VIP, not-so-important attendees, SCOTUS, and not a mouse in sight, attended the occasion.  There was a time when I watched the State of the Union Address, filled with pride and hope – not  high on Hopium.  So without further ado…..SEND IN THE CLOWNS!!!.

UPDATE 1:  Grown-ups screeching?
UPDATE 2:  I didn’t know “clapping” came in cans like laughter.
UPDATE 3:  No one’s hands or arms have fallen off yet.
UPDATE 4:  Wow.  CONTRIVANCE EXTRAORDINAIRE!
UPDATE  5:  Phoney-baloney pomp & circumstance fit for a king.
UPDATE  6:  Well. That introduction was o.b.s.c.e.n.e.

Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit, 2013 State of the Union Address – OPEN THREAD

Open-fire, spray SUSPICIOUS vehicle with bullets on open road? You’re kiddin’ me

Since when has it been alright for lahw enfarcement to open-fire on a vehicle on the open roads of America?  (S)

open-fire-on-the-public.sm

Not since Bonnie & Clyde, I’d reckon!  Yes, yes, yes, I know lahw enfarcement are searching for this Dorner character, the 33 year old fugitive suspected of killing three people and injuring two others.  BUT COME ON!  Lahw enfarcement mistake the vehicle for Dorner’s pickup, open-fire on the vehicle injuring 2 mail carriers?!?  HOLY COW. This is nucking futz.

And to think, we all agree it’s outrageous when SWAHT teams kick down the door of the wrong house and spray the inside with bazookas killing innocent people. -oo- But now, Americans have to worry about being gunned down in public by trigger-happy LEcowboys out & about on a manhunt?!?

Megaphone Alert: Lahw Enfarcement to Americans:  PAY ATTENTION. We are conditioning you to the policies and procedures of the impending lahw enfarcement manifesto which may include open-fire on moving vehicles on our highways, pin-point drone attacks and surgical excision of targeted homesteads suspected to harbor ugly thoughts.

Please.professionals with a brain, moderate disposition and common sense, you need to pony up to the big kahunas and put a stop to this madness.  Stop talking about these abuses, lecturing the choir, and ‘safety-in-numbers’ C-SPAN appearances if you can’t deliver change to these lawless practices.  Otherwise, take another hit on your Hopium and ride outta town on your horse with no legs, howboutit?

UPDATE on Prez-O’s “skeet” shot (‘,’)

bamamoderndavycrockett‘I shot the sheriff, I did not shoot the deputy skeet throw-er’

OK, I’ve thought about this photo a little more and have come to the conclusion that it’s possible prez-O shot the clay-pigeon launcher or thrower because he’s put a bead on something directly in front of himself and most skeet shooters try not to shoot the launcher.  But that’s just my opinion *tricksy titters*  Let’s hope this is a “staged” shot.  Sorry, but I’m high on Hopium here.  How ’bout chu?

It’s the Self-Control NOT Gun Control, Stupid!

Let’s get real here, pardner.  This Instant-Gratification Party needs to end.   The Trigger-Tempers need to be reined in, like, now.   Our kids and young adults need to get down to the business of becoming productive, responsible citizens.   Our parents need to put down their toys and self-interests and get down to the business of raising their kids as though they love them.   Not tolerate them.  Not resent them because they require one’s time and attention.   Feed their bodies and their souls.  Teach them and yourselves moderation, patience and self-control.  Get your kids some religion and community service to learn to get over themselves and serve others.   Get off your high-horse and get down to business!  And remember, PopUpCommontater is not full of what your horse leaves behind it, warm and steaming.  Hee Haw.

Good fer you, Bruce Willis!

Nice to see one of my favorite actors, Bruce Willis, get his pat on, coming out publicly with his “..don’t infringe on Second Amendment..” comment.  PuC is a die hard ‘Die Hard’ fan and looks forward to seeing John McClane back in action.  It goes without saying the whole nation is shocked by the Newton, CT school shooting that took the lives of so many young children and school personnel and wish to express condolences to all touched by this tragedy.  And meaning no disrespect, I agree gun control is not the answer.  Willis put it succinctly when he said,

“It’s a difficult thing and I really feel bad for those families,” he said. “I’m a father and it’s just a tragedy. But I don’t know how you legislate insanity. I don’t know what you do about it. I don’t even know how you begin to stop that.”

Willis is correct in saying you can’t legislate insanity, but you can surely curb its impact on society by getting rid of the political correctness chimera and accept the fact that there will always be those a little bit different than the rest of us and we should single them out like we did in the olden days.  Back then, we all knew about the ‘crazy aunt in the attic’ or the ‘strange kid’ on the block and we stayed alert for any signs of aberrant behavior to relay to the parents before things got out of hand.  We also had institutions for the psychotic among us.  Then someone stupid decided to close these institutions and open up community mental health centers that gave out band-aid lectures on how to pretend these people were just like the rest of us – only not so much.   Told us we couldn’t discern oddities nor ‘discriminate’ against those who hadthem.  Well, how did that work out for us?

Then, our nation’s Majestic Chumps took to stripping  our souls by forbidding our God’s sovereignty over us, took prayers out of schools and the pledge of allegiance became so passe and out-dated by our High Nannies.  If that wasn’t enough, it was decided by our families should be destroyed to further alienate us from one another.  I could go on, but you get the idea, I’m sure.

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

bamamoderndavycrockett

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!

I appreciate my gun. Thank you gun. Thank you for standing at the ready. Thank you for saving my life.

On the Occasion of Gun Appreciation Day,  January 19, 2013

Ode to Gun

glock22-sm

Without you, my gun
I’d have no one, not even
me.  I owe you one.

So here’s THAT one, gun;
where I say you are MY gun-
nothing above you

save Heaven’s Father.
Nothing between us except
God and our country.

Have Gun Will Travel
to ends of earth proclaiming
God’s Liberty song!

Please don’t tread on me
world, or I’ll make my gun sing!
rat-a-tat-tat, rat

C’mon gun, let’s get
hell out of Dodge, let heaven
take a crack at it.

From dust are we born,
to dust we shall rest in peace;
me and Blue steel gun.
~

  • There’s something creepy about a president, unveiling gun proposal plans, needing to surround himself with children.  It reminds me of other creepy imaginings like entertainers with arrested development preferring the company of children so they can feel all-mature and powerful-like.  Taking a serious issue and reducing it down to like, say, Mr. Rogers using his index finger to slowly push a tiny truck across a desk….parking it next to the big pink eraser.

  • It’s a joke to learn how FAST & FURIOUS Attorney General Eric Holder and the DOJ are asking a federal court to delay indefinitely a case brought against them by watchdog Judicial Watch.  Didn’t Prez-O just sign an executive order stating “the DOJ will release a report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement”.  Oops to bad timing.  It’s nice to note this irony pointed out by PuC recently hasn’t been lost on other astute observers.
  • Cyclist Lance Armstrong strong-arms his pseudo-conscience in his interview with Oprah Winfrey on his doping, actually says it was “part of the job” . Seriously.  I just can’t understand why Armstrong wasn’t sitting on the floor with the rest of the children during Prez-O’s creepy gun proposal photo-op.  Deceitful Armstrong, just another flawed character.  Another narcissistic headline-grabber.
  • Now I’m reading about the kid’s video at Prez-O’s gun proposal plans photo-op who yelled in unison “NO GUNS! NO GUNS!” while reading their pithy letters, most likely dictated and coached by their parents via the Ministry of Propaganda.  Contrived, through-and-through.  Perhaps by self-appointed ‘knowledge experts’ in knickers.
  • And now, from this ‘self-appointed knowledge leader’, there’s never been a despot who hasn’t surrounded himself by lots of kiddies in a public forum.

Sen. Diane Feinstein, gun owner for *her* own protection vs. wants to take *your* gun! *hypocrite alert*

Here’s a good one to mull over hours before Prez-O takes to the podium to dictate what you are allowed in the World According to Garp, er, Grab-ber, as in, grabbing up all your Constitutional Rights squirreled away in your nest egg.  As Prez-O stands at the podium, backed by all his Enforcers backed by their Big Guns with their own Big Gunners, just think for a moment about how FAST and FURIOUS they are to get their gun ban laws enacted (BEFORE they clean their own house of illegal doings?).  You’ll only have your pitch forx to hold them off at the stand-off corral, ok?  And so, without further ado, here’s Diane Feinstein du jour senator, sitting in her congressional seat (where’s her seat belt??!!), rationalizing why she had to arm herself to her captive *snort* audience because she received death threats – and she was gonna shoot them first!  Gotta love these congressional Ghost GunBusters!

[HERE IS THE SPACE WHERE THE VIDEO WAS STRIPPED OUT ! um]

It’s okay to screeeeeeam.  All is futile.
