RANDOM SHOTS - Obama's War On Americans?

FIRST SHOT! 

Are You On Overload Yet?

Lately, I've been asked why I bother to post Old West history or something on livestock or guns when there is so much going on in the News these days?

Well, as for posting more Old West history and the like?

I find that we can learn a great deal from what took place in the past. And yes, too often people ignore the lessons taught us and instead do the insanity thing.

The insanity thing? Yup, the insanity thing!

It was Albert Einstein who said, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

I find that to be a daily occurrence where Liberals are concerned. It seems they enjoy chaos.

Here in California, we have our share of the craziness.

In Sacramento, our state capital, Conservatives are non-existent; and the crazies on the Left are doing everything they can to make California into a Socialist bastion of over-regulation, over-taxation based on a Communist ideology and social engineering.

The result is that the state of California is pushing businesses into relocating anywhere other than here; and with residents paying higher taxes - for the first time in the history of California, more people are leaving than coming in.   

Of course the mass exodus is also due to California's insane Political Correctness as defined by the Liberals who occupy the state capital, San Francisco, and Los Angeles where alternative and deviant lifestyles are looked upon as normal.

California's Leftist crazies in charge of the capital are busy with important work as they perceive it.

And that, well that's pushing an agenda that smacks of San Francisco and Hollywood lunacy - such as declaring that a child who has not yet completely developed mentally can now declare himself or herself whatever gender they please.

Yes, it is now the law of the land in California, a boy or a girl may in fact choose to be a gender other than the one they were born. 

Isn't it amazing that the Liberal politicians in California are amazed to find out that more and parents are Home Schooling their kids just to get them away from the Liberal Indoctrination Camps that California calls public schools. 

As for Washington DC, Republicans control half of Congress, or 1/2 of 1/3 of the three branches of the Federal government - and God only knows how many are really Conservatives versus RINOs.

Since the Republicans in the House of Representatives decided that they were not going to fund ObamaCare until it fixed some major problems - including its exemption of the President and Congress and their staff members from having to abide by the new law - the President and his Democrats are throwing a tantrum and shut down the government.

Of course, that's not really true, the golf courses and Air Force One and the 5 Cargo Planes that it takes to get the President to one of his vacation spots is still operating.

The furlough effects 800,000 "non-essential" government employees who will get paid for staying home in the form of "back-pay"? Yup, that makes no sense to me either!

Of course the guys that should be furloughed is the President and the Congress and the Supreme Court - you bet that that would get them off their dead asses and off their high horses and on the job to fix things!

As for ObamaCare?

Well, the built-in exemption, the one which Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats who controlled Congress at the time made sure they got in the law as a condition for passing it in 2010, subsequently puts politicians above the law they passed.

As a result, President Obama and his fellow Democrat Harry "The Weasel" Reid who runs the Senate allowed the government to shutdown.

They refuse to restore the government until the Republicans relent and give in and allow ObamaCare to go through as stands - problems or not, with exemptions, and screwing the American people.

Yes, Liberals can say screw America, you and me, because there are no consequences to their horseshit behavior.

Fact is, like children, Democrats are a spoiled bunch of brats. And yes, their constituents have allowed them to become the way they are  - abusive of the power they have.

If they were really held responsible for their actions, then maybe we would get better from them? But they're not, and they know it.

They know that the only thing they have to worry about is being re-elected.

They also know with money, power, and people who will vote for them solely on their liberal ideology, that they have no real worry.

For me, I'd like to furlough the Democrats who don't care about the consequences of messing with our government.

I'd like to initiate fines and penalties, and withhold pay or perks until they get their shit together.

Maybe then Democrats would start caring about the job they are doing - instead of only caring about their political party and holding on to their constituents like Slave Masters do their slaves?

SECOND SHOT!

What's Being Unnecessarily Shutdown By Obama and the Democrats to Inflict Pain on the Public

Yes, it is my opinion as well as that of millions of others, President Obama is a very vengeful arrogant individual full of spite and hate for Americans.

He is proving that fact everyday.

He and the Democrat Party have decided that they will wage war on the American public rather than give up their exemptions and special privileges.

Obama has shut down these specifically. He has:

1)  Refused special funding for the treatment of Children suffering from Cancer. 

This move is one that Harry Reid sees has no big deal, even going to the point of saying what makes them so special.

2)  Furloughed Military Chaplains. 

The Obama Administration has even gone so far as to threaten the Christian Chaplains with arrest if they administer religious services to our troops even on their own time - working for free. 

Yes, Obama sees nothing wrong with arresting Chaplains.

3)  Obama has ordered "open-air" memorials which are normally open to the public 24/7 to be closed and those trying to enter them will be arrested by the National Parks Service.

Imagine that? Guards are now keeping Americans away from
  • the Lincoln Memorial,
  • the Statue of Liberty,
  • the Grand Canyon, 
  • Yosemite National Park,
  • Yellowstone National Park,
It was reported that visitors there were detained in the hotel - many believing they were under arrest for some unknown reason.

Obama's modern day Gestapo didn't give anyone a reason. They just did what they were told. Smacks of Nazi Germany! Obama should be proud.
  • Ford's Theatre
The famed Washington theater where Abraham Lincoln was shot has also been caught in the shutdown.

Though the group that operates the theater is a nonprofit - and it survived the last shutdown - Ford's Theatre was closed last week. It is believed the order to shutdown came from the White House.

The group has since moved performances down the street.

"There are no federal employees, no federal expenses. . . . We are just a pawn caught in the game," Paul R. Tetreault, Ford's director, told The Washington Post.

  • Mt. Rushmore
Yes, the Obama administration has given orders to try to stop Americans from even "looking" at Mount Rushmore from afar.

In South Dakota, the park officials put up traffic cones to prevent passersby from pulling over to take pictures of Mount Rushmore. Imagine that!

As chicken shit as that sounds, the Obama administration isn't finished yet.

The Obama administration also closed
  • the St. Louis Arch,
  • the Vietnam Memorial,
  • the D-Day Memorial,
  • the World War II Memorial
We know that a group of seniors, all World War II Veterans, made a trip to Washington DC to see "their" memorial and were at first turned away - but that did not stop them from getting pass barricades (that were brought in specifically to close it to the public) and seeing it. 

The next day, the Obama Administration had made it known that they would arrest anyone, seniors included, if they breach the security at the World War II Memorial. 

The Obama Administration also brought in additional Parks Police with K-9 units to scare away the Americans visiting the site.

"It cost more money to barricade the monuments than it would to keep them open," Rep. Jason Smith, R-Mo., complained on the House floor on Tuesday.

And yes, he's right! 
  • Other memorials, landmarks, and national parks around the nation were also closed, including Valley Forge.
In fact, a Pennsylvania man who went jogging at Valley Forge National Historic Park informed Fox News that he was hit with a $100 fine because the area was technically closed.

He claims he parked his car in an area that was not blockaded. He claims he thought jogging was still okay.

He was met by two armed park rangers and slapped with a ticket.

Yes, when a tyrant says its closed - he means it!

4)  Obama has closed over 100 Privately-Managed Parks that cost no money to run.

5)  Obama has closed Hotels, Beaches, Boat-Docks, Concession Stands, Restaurants, and even Police Parking lots - even though they did not cost a the Federal Government a dime. 

These were located at or near lands, or ones receiving Federal funds.

6)  Obama ordered the National Park Service to close the entire Florida Bay for the duration of the shutdown.

It’s also prohibited fishing in Biscayne National Park.

To enforce these closures, the National Park Service plans to pay agents to stand around making sure no American can enjoy the ocean.

To enforce its closure of Florida Bay, the Park Service will be using more man power and money than it usually takes to keep access to the Bay open - but that does not matter to a vindictive Obama.

Obama has also closed the Thompson Boat center in Washington DC

7)  Obama has closed the Self-sustaining Colonial Farm which has not received Federal Funds since 1980.

8)  Obama has also closed all Military Commissaries which is used by both Military Families and Retirees.

Please understand that while Obama has closed the Commissaries to families, he has made sure that the Golf Course at Andrew's Air Force Base remains open because he golfs there.

No joke! That's for real!

9)  Obama has stopped the BURIAL BENEFITS of our troops killed in action.  

America's military chief's have announced that the Department of Defence will not be able to pay death benefits to families of soldiers who have been killed in combat, even though Republicans in the House of Representatives have passed a bill to restore that funding.

The problem is that any bill passed by the Republican controlled House of Representatives has to go to the Democrat controlled Senate for passing - and Democrat Harry Reid said that he will kill any Republicans attempt to fund the government in any way.

Yes, President Obama has stopped this!

"I think it's disgraceful that they're withholding these benefits," Speaker of the House John Boehner said in an effort to urge President Obama to sign the bill that the House will take up again on Wednesday.

THIRD SHOT!

Obama Kills The Last Wish Of Dying Child 

14-year-old Morgan Jones has a fatal disease and is legally blind but all she wanted was to visit the Statue of Liberty. But thanks to Obama’s shut down, she has been denied that last request.

Morgan is from Ashland, Kentucky and was visiting New York to fulfill a life-long hope of visiting the Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island.

But with the government shut down engineered by the Democrats, the young girl is not going to be able to visit the symbol of American Liberty.

Morgan will be returning home without having visited the symbol of American liberty on a trip arranged by the Lexington Dream Factory, an organization that helps dying kids fulfill wishes.

“She’s heartbroken. Her whole dream was to climb up the 354 steps to the crown,” mother April Keelin said.

Morgan was born with glutaric acidemia Type 2, a disease that impairs the body’s ability to break down fat and protein.

She must eat every three hours or risk a brain hemorrhage. Only 50 people in the world are said to have the disease.

Sadly, the girl may not live long enough for a return trip.

Morgan’s mother is a music teacher and said that they can’t afford to return any time soon.

“We don’t know if we’d ever get back to do this for her again,” the girl’s mother said.

Thank you, Mr President. Your compassion is overwhelming.

LAST SHOT!

A Complete Lack Of Common Sense Has Taken Over Bartow Florida

The Florida city orders residents to remove "God Bless America" signs

flasignflap12.jpg

It's true! Asinine sure, but it's true!

Bartow Florida has a problem with residents saying "God Bless America".

Residents of the small Florida city who have had "God Bless America" signs posted on their front lawns for months have been ordered by local officials to remove them.

MyFoxTampaBay.com reports that the First Baptist Church of Bartow distributed some 300 signs to residents following a Fourth of July celebration.

The city only permits residents to display signs during major holidays is starting to crack down on the displays.

"Being a veteran, I felt like I was just kicked in the gut. I couldn't believe it, that I couldn't display my love for my nation by putting a sign up that says "God Bless America," Bartow resident Marcus Seger told the station.

The Bartow city's code enforcement division recently notified "offending" residents that its temporary sign ordinance has been in place for 13 years and already allows for some exceptions for yard displays.

"They can have those signs out on holidays that are relevant," ," Bartow Code Enforcement Director Gregg Lamb said. "You can have a temporary sign around Christmas if it's related to Christmas. Or the 4th of July. The sign ordinance has exceptions for that."

While the city has obviously gone crazy, some Bartow residents have not and totally disagree with the ordinance - they have no plans to comply with the city's request.

"This is my yard that I'm paying the taxes on. It's my right," Emmett Purvis, an area resident with a sign, told MyFoxTampaBay.com.

Several residents are expected to seek a waiver from the ordinance at an upcoming Bartow City Commission meeting.

The city's code enforcement division does not enforce fines or penalties for non-compliance, according to the report.

City Manager George Long released a statement late Friday reminding residents that code enforcement officers are targeting all types of signs, regardless of the message.

If the message "God Bless America" is in violation of city code in any community in America, we may be in more trouble than even I suspected.
And yes, that's how I see it!
