This post ought to bring in the mental midgets from all corners of the internet……I certainly hope so………the trolls will have a day with this post but first they will have to put down the Cheetohs and do what their Mommie tells them……….that is if I did not use too big of words for them…….(insert smiley face)………..if these words are a problem then ask a 10 year old……they will understand.
I have been watching the news in Texas…..they have this debate going on about the possibility to openly carry a hand gun in public……it is a debate the we should have but it has gone beyond reasonable to the brutish……it appears that thugs from some guns rights group is pushing its way into legislators offices and basically intimidating them into voting for the bill…..they even conned the Lt. Governor into a meeting so he could avoid a scene…..but what can you expect from a spineless politician? (This is a quick definition of what is happening if you want more info then Google will do you proud)
My take on this situation…….
If it is illegal to intimidate a witness or juror in a trial, how isd it legal that such intimidation is legal when it comes to law makers? Okay you do not like that take………Is it legal to intimidate a retailer to get him to do what you want? Then how is it legal use harsh words and maybe a gun to convince someone to see things your way? I believe that is called coercion. And the last time I checked it was against the law as well as the Constitution.
Does the term “Brown Shirts” ring a bell? In case you missed the PBS special…the Brown Shirts were thugs in 20’s and 30’s Germany that intimidated the population to get what they wanted….does it ring a bell now?
Okay another angle…..let’s say you go to a rally or protests whatever you would like to call it and most everyone there were people of color and almost all of them had weapons in plain sight…..what will be your reaction?….I mean besides running to FOX News that is…….
Hey Haters! You dildos do realize there is more to the Constitution than the 2nd amendment, right?
The religious Right has been blowing smoke up Americans butts for years…..especially about the Constitution and other historical events…..but most of the things they, the religious Right, say that were the principles that this country was founded on are…..well…..LIES!
I got this on Twitter yesterday and wanted to pass it along…..
The US Constitution is everybody’s ideal piece of governance…..we pick and choose thge parts that we want to defend or attack…..but there is usually a larger picture that we miss ……sometimes completely.
Has the US Constitution Been Lost to Military Rule? by Todd E. Pierce — Antiwar.com.
Americans are ate up with the “Lawsuit Lotto”.
Then there is the Congress, the most wasteful institution in DC…..not only is it a part-time leadership but it is equally as worthless as a governing body……Obama recently got fed up with the dance that Congress was playing on immigration and took matters into his own hands…..
And of course whatever he does is wrong in the eyes of the GOP….they bitch and moan…..whine and shout……and still cannot come up with a plan…
But now they have their little lap dogs to do their work for them……GOP governors…….
More than a third of the states have joined a lawsuit fighting President Obama’s sweeping executive action on immigration. The suit brought by 17 states against the federal government was filed in Texas and announced by Greg Abbott, the state attorney general and governor-elect, reports the Los Angeles Times. He accuses Obama of “abdicating his responsibility to faithfully enforce laws that were duly enacted by Congress and attempting to rewrite immigration laws, which he has no authority to do.” The filing in federal court says the suit “is not about immigration. It is about the rule of law, presidential power, and the structural limits of the US Constitution.”
The other states suing are Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Supporters of Obama’s immigration order called the suit grandstanding, and the administration says the order was legal and has precedent, reports the Wall Street Journal. “The Supreme Court and Congress have made clear that federal officials can set priorities in enforcing our immigration laws, and we are confident that the president’s executive actions are well within his legal authorities,” a White House spokesman says.
Just what the resident of those states need…..a moronic lawsuit instead of jobs and policies that benefit the people…but NOOOOOOOOOOO! These turkeys want to grand stand and play the Constitutionality card….a term they do not understand. It all sounds impressive but in reality it is a game and a political theater.
Change? A subject that Americans clamor on and on about…..but yet Not one of them can accurately say just what change entails……….most are not looking for real change but rather just a new set of politicians ………..which is NOT change.
When the war of words between the two drag ass parties gets heated someone always brings up the issue of constitutionality…….and then some else has the brilliant idea of a constitutional convention to solve any dispute…..and then everyone takes a step back and calmer heads prevail…….
But in reality is there ever going to be a convention to possibly re-do the constitution or maybe add an amendment or two?
The US Constitution has 27 amendments, all of which have been added in the usual manner laid out in high school civics texts. But Bloomberg catches up with a movement to alter the Constitution in a way that’s never been done—by holding a constitutional convention to draft changes. In order for such a convention to happen, two-thirds of the states need to call for one, and advocates say they’ve already cracked the two-dozen mark on the way to the necessary 34. As Bloomberg’s Albert Hunt explains, most of the push is coming from fiscal conservatives who want to add an amendment requiring a balanced budget or some other kind of financial discipline.
Hunt thinks it’s “still not likely” the movement will succeed, but what has critics and constitutional scholars worried nonetheless is the unprecedented nature of such a convention. Would anything be up for debate? Might the Bill of Rights be endangered, at least theoretically? Robert Greenstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities writes in the Washington Post that everything about a possible convention, from the selection of delegates to the voting rules, is uncharted territory. “That means that under a convention, anything goes,” he writes. The website redmillennial.com rounds up views from high-profile advocates, including Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who calls a convention the only way to “restrain the size of the federal government.”
Lots of bold talk……but who has the cajones to ride this issue to finish….my guess is…NO ONE! It is all talk….making political points…..but No action will ever occur.
Personally, I think that it is beyond time to take a hard realistic look at a new convention……there are so many issues that need to be cleared up and put into perspective.
In this world where many are worried about the first and second amendment rights…………Everybody and I do mean……..EVERYBODY has an opinion on the loss of privacy and such…….but the 4th amendment is being shredded and no matter where you are on the political spectrum………you should be WORRIED!

There has been many battles over the Second Amendment of the US Constitution……many opinions and many debates…..I have given my take on why the amendment was put into the Bill of Rights…..this is a good piece worth a read…….
