My Response to Marco Rubio's Request for Contribution

By now it is no surprise that soon-to-be-jobless and much despised Marco Rubio has decided to run for re-election to his senate seat, after all.  I just received his email announcement and, of course, a request for a contribution.  My response, typos and all:

"Please remove me from further mailings.  There is no way in hell that I would support that RINO, turncoat, everyone-else-but-Americans first, deal-cutting-with-the-Democrats, faux-conservative Marco Rubio.  He is one reason I no longer donate to the Republican party.  He is party of the problem of party leadership that has sold out to the highest bidder and has absolutely no regard to those who voted for him.  I will gladly contribute to his opponent in the primary.

Thanks, but no thanks,"

One more reason to like Donald Trump

An NBC reporter asks Donald Trump about whether he owns a gun and about gun control:

KATY TUR, NBC NEWS: You're for the Second Amendment. Do you have a gun?

DONALD TRUMP: I have a license to have a gun. Yes I do.

NBC: Do you use it? Gun ranges?

DONALD TRUMP: It is none of your business, it is really none of your business. I have a license to have a gun.

NBC: Gun control.

DONALD TRUMP: What are you talking about? Yes I have a gun and yes I have a permit for it.

NBC: Stronger background checks. What about that? Is there any steps that you would take to make it harder to get a gun in this country.

DONALD TRUMP: The problem is once you get into that you start getting into a situation, the slippery slope, where all of a sudden you are going to violate the Second Amendment. I don't want to violate the Second Amendment. To me the Second Amendment is very important.

Another reason I am liking Donald Trump for President.  He gets to the point.

Trouble in River City: of the Good Kind

There will be a protest in support of Anthony Bosworth, who was accosted by local variants of federal jackbooted thugs for exercising his right to be armed on public property outside the Thomas S. Foley Kremlin Building here in Spokane, Washington.  It will occur on Friday, March 6, 2015 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  A good summation of the details can be had in David Codrea's article, here.

Mike Vanderboegh of Sipsey Street plans on attending.  For that reason alone I am going to try and take some time off work to meet Mike.  Also, probably wouldn't hurt to have a pro-gun attorney around.

Netanyahu: A Leader for His People

Watched Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress from this morning.  Puts his own country's interests first.  A true leader for his nation.  Unlike ours.  The graphic below sums up my feelings today.

Scorecard: Obama has pen and phone; Boehner has Constitution and ......... No Balls

Once again, liberal tooth fairy and temporarily President Barack "Barry Soetoro" Obama is threatening to deliver goodies to his people in the dead of night, using his mighty pen and telephone to issue dictatorial orders if that bad ole' Congress does not march in lockstep with him.  Once upon a time, in the America I grew up in, that bad ole' Congress would put the kibosh on the tyrannical fool in the White House and refuse to fund his executive branch bullies.  Anyone remember Henry Hyde and Todd Tiahrt?  And on extreme occasions the possibility of impeachment was openly discussed.  On rarer occasions acted upon.

Then there is Congressman John Boehner, Speaker of the House.  I won't say defender of liberty, because I just can't see him in that role. Defender of statism, cronyism, and the status quo?  Most definitely.  Mr. Boehner's response to Soetoro-Obama?  "We have the Constitution."  Literally.  Go look at his Facebook page.  Even has a "hero shot", looking up at Mr. Boehner as he holds some document in his hand.  Judging from past experience with Mr. Boehner, he is probably holding his new agreement with the Obama White House for him to personally clean its septic tank for $1,000,000.00, payable by Mr. Boehner.

As I scrolled down Mr. Boehner's Facebook page, I noticed that Mr. Boehner actually has a little bit more to say on the topic:  "President Obama says he has a pen and a phone he can use to bypass Congress. Pens and phones are nice, but we have the Constitution..."  A bit further down the page, I was heartened to see that Americans are not the rubes that Mr. Boehner takes us for.  Commentary was decidedly critical of Mr. Boehner, mostly not in a way favorable to Mr. Soetoro-Obama.  Some of the more recent comments:

"What's taking so long for YOU to do SOMETHING!? Appoint a special committee to investigate Benghazi, already! Impeach Eric Holder for lying to congress about Fast and Furious. And, prosecute those responsible for using the IRS to harass American citizens, all the way up to and including those in, the White House. Do it! Now!";

"When you take action to stop this dictator,then I will start to believe you. When he is impeached then I might start to trust you. Until then it is all blah,blah,blah.";

"Then use it! Impeach him! and read the comments on this post.. The people of the country are tired of your words and no ACTION...Mr Speaker!";

and my favorite:

"Grow a pair and go get him."
