America’s Most Aggressive Defender of Firearms Ownership

 

” I want to provide a context for several of the arguments which are used in the modern lexicon of those who would attempt to separate you from your rights, but first I want to define a term. Many of us who can read the Constitution and understand it’s historical context, have known for a long time that the right to keep and bear arms, was not created by the U.S. Constitution. The Second Amendment says Quote: “the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” It does NOT say, “the right to keep and bear arms is hereby created.” The right pre-existed the Amendment, plain and simple.

The Surprising Details About Sonia Sotomayor’s College Past That You Won’t Find in Her New Book | TheBlaze.com

See on Scoop.itEconomicFactors

Sotomayor’s time at Princeton takes up much of the book, but her account of her alma mater left a lot out, especially her involvement in left-wing politics and an explicitly anti-white club.

Bill McKee‘s insight:

It figures.  This is the sort of racially obsessed personality that Obama attracts.  And hiding her actual background is something that everyone in the Obama administration seems to revel in.  The fish rots from the head down.

Science Fiction and the Dept. of Interior

See on Scoop.itEconomicFactors

So called “Environmentalists” have taken over major agencies in our government and radicalized our approach to common sense solutions to problems.. and make up problems to expand it’s control, infl…

Bill McKee‘s insight:

This video record of a Congressional hearing a few months ago (which is being kept hush hush by leftist media) demonstrates how radical and evil the policies and policymakers have become in the Obama Interior Dept.  On every front, the Obama administration is intent upon destroying the economic foundation of the USA, using specious arguments to carry out the destruction.. and firing any whistleblower who dares to expose their outrageous conduct and plans.

 

This is today’s American Federal Government… a nest of elitists who are determined to bring America down.

DETROIT (Reuters) – At the Detroit Auto Show earlier this month, luxury was in the air. Pricey new Bentleys and Maseratis glittered – including a Maserati 2014 Quattroporte with a $132,000 price tag; U.S.

Bill McKee‘s insight:

Detroit:  This is how an entitlement "economy" ends. Badly.  Very Badly.

 

Even now, the municipal "government" leeches insist they are entitled to a bailout by their State and Federal government cousins.  No substantive reason given for the claim of entitlement to yet another entitlement..

Are increased PERS costs responsible for a $500 per student increase in state spending?

See on Scoop.itEconomicFactors

During his recent State of the State address, Gov. John Kitzhaber defended a proposal to cap the cost of living adjustment for those on the public employee retirement system.

Bill McKee‘s insight:

Funding skyrocketing costs for government schools is compounded by skyrocketing costs for tremendously padded government retirement plans that were ill conceived, at best.  As usual when it comes to government, the problem was masked early on.. kicked down the road.. till now we can no longer kick the can.  The legislators who created the problem have long ago retired, and their replacements are virtually employed by public employee unions now.. so they aren’t about to do what is right.  

 

The best solution is to recognize the error.. go to a system where parents are issued a stipend they can use to educate their children in schools of their choice.  Let private schools unleash their considerable skills.  We would see an immediate improvement in public schools… or else. 

 

As some like to say over and over… the current system is unsustainable.
