“A wise and frugal government… shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.”
~Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1801

I am angry.
I am angry that no one is standing up to the insanity that is being perpetrated by the progressive-socialist Democrats (PSD) through the government, the mass media, and the schools.
Have Americans become too stupid and out of touch to care or has their spirit been crushed by the constant proselytizing of the PSD establishment? Have we become a nation of zombies controlled by the state or do we still have the courage to stand and fight for what is right and good?
It is time for everyone who cares about what this nation used to stand for to stand up and say Enough!
It is time to take America back.
Do we want an America where a second grader is suspended from school for eating a pop-tart into the shape, the shape, of a gun?
Yes, this actually happened. Glenn Beck reports on The Blaze,
When you’re a kid you do a lot of stuff that might get you into trouble, but do you believe that making a “pop-tart gun” is one of them?
Don’t know what a Pop-Tart gun is? Well, it’s when you eat a Pop-Tart until it’s in an “L” shape and then you hold the short end. So if you really, really use your imagination it looks like a small, fruity gun.
“We have a second grader, another student has been suspended for something that represents a gun but isn’t anything like a gun. Josh Welch, second grader at Park Elementary School in Baltimore, Maryland, suspended for two days because his teacher thought he shaped the strawberry prebaked toaster pastry into something resembling a gun,” Beck said.
If the kid hadn’t been suspended for the “lethal pop tart,” his parents would probably been arrested by the food police for not providing an “approved” nutritional meal.
The insanity continues. According to WFTX-TV Fox 4 in Tampa, Florida,
A 16-year-old Cypress Lake High School student, who wrestled a loaded revolver away from a teen threatening to shoot, is being punished.
The student grappled the gun away from the 15-year-old suspect on the bus ride home Tuesday after witnesses say he aimed the weapon point blank at another student and threatened to shoot him.
The student says he wrestled the .22 caliber RG-14 Revolver away from the suspect, a football player, who witnesses say threatened to shoot a teammate because he had been arguing with his friend.
“No doubt,” the student said, “he was going to shoot him point blank.”
As if this kind of thing wasn’t bad enough, CNS News reports that the Obama Justice Department is arguing in the United States Supreme Court that children do not need — and have no right to — mothers.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Arguments are being presented before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that will determine the constitutionality of California Proposition 8, which amended the state Constitution to say that marriage involves only one man and one woman.
So far, in the history of the human race, no child has ever been born without a biological father and mother. Now, in the Supreme Court of the United States, the Executive Branch of the federal government is arguing that, regardless of the biological facts of parenthood, states have no legitimate and defenisble interest in ensuring that children conceived by a mother and a father are in fact raised by mothers and fathers.
The brief that the Justice Department presented to the Supreme Court discussed children only as items controlled by others, not as individual human beings who have God-given rights of their own. It simply assumes that a child has no inherent right to a mother or father and that the only right truly in question is whether two people of the same-sex have a right to marry one another and that that right encompasses a right to adopt and foster-raise children.
To take this view and be consistent with the principles of the Declaration of Independence — which recognizes the ultimate authority of the “Laws of Nature and Nature’s God” and says that “all men are created equal” and “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights” — the Obama Justice Department must advance the assumption that natural law and Nature’s God give children no right to a mother and father and no right not to be legally handed over by the government to be raised by same-sex couples.
Finally, proof has been unearthed that in order to achieve total control over the population, the Obama Department of Justice doesn’t want to ban guns, it wants to confiscate them.
According to Red Flag News,
The National Rifle Association has obtained a Department of Justice memo calling for national gun registration and confiscation. The nine page “cursory summary” on current gun control initiatives was not officially released by the Obama administration.
The DOJ memo (downloadable here as a PDF) states the administration “believes that a gun ban will not work without mandatory gun confiscation,” according to the NRA, and thinks universal background checks “won’t work without requiring national gun registration.”
Add this to the fact that Vision to America reports
“According to one estimate, since last year the Department of Homeland Security has stockpiled more than 1.6 billion bullets, mainly .40 caliber and 9mm.
DHS also purchased 2,717 Mine Resistant Armor Protected Vehicles (MRAP).”
This should concern all law-abiding Americans. However, before you dismiss this, read my blog post Is Obama Readying for War on Americans? (April 2, 2012) and DHS Source Warns of Government-Incited Violence Against Citizens in United States (May 16, 2012).
It is time to take back America and restore sanity while we can.
