2nd Amendment Rights, Debt Ceilings, And Other Stuff

Since the election, for the first time in my life I have been at loss for words. I could not believe it when Obama won the first time, but to be re-elected was a shock. He won, he got the most votes but this does not mean that all of us people who did not, and do not agree with where he is taking the country should roll over and play dead. This article will be just a hodge podge of my observations using famous quotes to make my point.

The first point is, if you take away our guns, only criminals will have guns. Obama can stand for a photo shoot with little kids behind him wanting him(and being brainwashed into thinking) to keep them safe. He doesn’t have a clue about worrying about his daughters. The go to Sidwell Friends school, it has armed guards, and secret service agents to accompany them to and from school. How do you spell hypocrite? He wants everyone to think he is a King, not a president. He is abusing executive orders and for some reason no one will stand up to him. All want to keep their jobs. If by the sweep of his mighty sword a/k/a pen, no citizen is allowed a gun in their house the thugs and crooks will have theirs. They do not follow rules or register guns and they don’t own a house or pay rent so no one can find them like they can a law abiding citizen. The world would be safer if every homeowner bought a gun, took a course in how to shoot it, and if someone started to break the door down, just shoot right thru the door. Why does the guy breaking in to rob or rape or murder you have more rights than you do? It is a real tragedy when a child gets their hands on a gun that is kept in the house but legislation wont stop that. Look at the children that have shot each other with their Daddy’s gun(and he is a police officer). Lets say I go out, buy a gun, get a permit or whatever I need if I have to keep the bullets out of the gun, and I have to have the gun locked up in a safe, its not going to help me when I wake up and see a stranger standing in my bedroom. There has to be some common sense to go with controls, laws and rules. Criminals will never follow rules. Teach the teachers to shoot, and to shoot anyone who barges into her classroom, no questions asked. Better to shoot first and ask questions later, than have your whole class slaughtered. No law abiding citizen is going to do something like that and banning guns and passing laws wont change a thing. When I was a little girl on a big Montana ranch we had a gun rack that the guns were hung on. They were loaded in case you heard a mountain lion trying to get your sheep or cattle. When I rode a horse I took a gun(I was 7 or 8) so I could at least protect myself a little. Not once did one of us shoot each other or ourselves or take our gun to murder the neighbor or shoot up the school.

Now to out of control spending. The balance has been shifted. There are more people being led to believe they “deserve” a nice place to live, good food on the table, all taken care of by the government. This quote by George Bernard Shaw is why I think Obama won twice. “A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul”. There are more Paul’s than Peter’s but this will not work very long because Peter will just quit his job when he sees he has to hand over what he earns to let the government give it to Paul.

You cannot buy friendship for foreign countries either. Most of the countries that we we are pouring millions of foreign aide to hate our guts. They would blow us off the map if they could. If we were really helping some POOR people I would see it totally different, but the people in the little shacks, with the little kids playing in the streets with pigs(four legged kind)never see a bit of the aide we send. Their leaders whether they are called Kings, Presidents, or Sheiks whatever just travel more, ask for more aide, have photo shoots (like Obama with little kids or at flooded places) but the money gets squandered. Look at the Mayor of New Orleans when it was flooded.He made off with millions. A school mate of Bill Clinton’s at Georgetown University, named Douglas Casey said, “Foreign aide might be defined as a transfer of money from the poor people in rich countries to the rich people in poor countries.” If our country is broke, STOP SENDING MONEY WE DON’T HAVE. If Obama really wanted to make a statement that he really cares for people or our debt, yesterday would have been the time. He already had one inauguration so why couldn’t he stand up and say, its time to get our debt under control and I want to start off by being an example. I am going to just be sworn in as president, no parties, no parades, no 120 million spent for my security so all of that money can go to pay off part of the national debt. He has blown thru billions traveling in his little air force one. Michelle has more servants than Queen Elizabeth. They spend more on the White House upkeep than England does on its Castle, etc. One last quote by Thomas Jefferson, “A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take away everything you have.”

I will close by copying what has become known as the FIVE BEST SENTENCES. Read these and think about them when you are thinking about what the politicians are telling you to get you to vote for them.


  1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
  2. What one person receives without working for…another person must work for without receiving
  3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
  4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
  5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work, because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation!

Moody’s Credit Ratings Threat To US

It’s about that time again, when we need to raise the debt ceiling.  Moody’s credit ratings services has stated that they will be cutting our rating if a debt deal is not reached.  Obviously, one will be agreed upon eventually.  Money seems to grow on trees for our Government so whats another trillion dollars to spend? Nobody wants to stand up to really cut any spending here in America as it could put their political career in jeopardy.  To save face our politicians think of ways to pinch the dollars out of us without saying its a tax.  They are no ashamed to propose taxing the 1% because they know the other 99% will be ok with that and their job is safe down the road.  It’s a shame really no one has stepped up (except Ron Paul) who has the confidence and brass to make the tough decisions about spending cuts.

In 2011, our “big cuts” were so small it was pathetic.  In perspective, if a family was in 142,710 in debt the equivalent spend cut was $385 dollars!  What a joke and honestly the proposal of cutting so little should be embarrassing.  Who could review a proposal like this with so little cut per year and not laugh them out of the room.  You would never pay your debt off at that rate so how can we expect to do that with our national deficit if we are making similar cuts?  We can’t and they won’t.  Obama won’t do it nor will Mitt Romney do it.  We need someone who is serious and just cuts a good 20% or more out of the ridiculous programs and tasks the Government shouldn’t even be involved in.

During the last negotiations of raising the debt ceiling our congress agreed upon cutting  38.5 billion dollars (pathetic).  In the 8 days they talked about what they were going to do, our national debt went up 54 billion dollars.  Lets get serious now and get this under control.  It’s beyond me how we even have a AAA rating by Moody’s Credit Ratings and perhaps they are just as wrong as everyone else laying in bed together.

Finally, one last food for thought, our “government stated” national debt is over 16 trillion dollars now and that means each citizens share of debt is over 51,000 dollars (313 million people).  OR IS IT…?  Now if you add in all the federal governments obligations (which we all know are nearly bankrupt) like Medicare, Social Security, Treasury Securitys, and Bonds the national debt is actually over 79 TRILLION DOLLARS.  That is a real number and a number you’ll never hear about from these crooks spenders in office.  With that in mind, every new baby born in this “rich” nation is given a burden of $253,000.

I know it’s hard to hear and the public would probably go crazy if that was broadcasted on TV – but the numbers are the numbers.
