Firearms And Franchise

Posted in Politics, Society on March 30th, 2011

American Patriot with MusketAny discussion of gun control is fraught with controversy, angst, and outrage rage; that’s just the way it is in American society where Liberals have consistently tried to disarm the law abiding gun owners while decrying sterner punishments for illegal purchase, ownership, or useoffirearms.

Reasonable minds, however, understand that there is room for debate and even compromise.

For example, requiring backgrounds checks for all firearm purchases and closing the “gun show loophole.” This is reasonable and can, with a little due diligence, be accomplished without trampling the Constitutional Rights enumerated in the 2nd Amendment and protected by the exercise of the same.

I’d be all in favor of this if the following preconditions were met:

  1. Multi-State background check databases were made easily accessible and commercially viable portable checking “kiosks” were developed so that the requirement for a background check didn’t de facto constitute a Prior Restraint on American’s right to keep arms.
  2. The exact same requirement and methodology for background checks is implemented by law at the polls for every election or referendum ballot.

The above are just simple compromises and pragmatic preconditions necessary to ensure that reasonable protective measures are emplaced on two perilous activities that Americans regularly undertake, purchasing firearms and exercising their franchise.

BallotIt seems to me that there’s little, if any, room for rational complaint about making sure the same provisions that cover firearm purchases also cover voting in elections or referendum ballots.

If the requirement for a background check is not a Prior Restraint upon American’s 2nd Amendment right then it obviously isn’t an illegal imposition on American’s privilege of voting.

Similarly, the rationale for such background checks is essentially the same for both firearms and voting. Society has long ago decided and codified into law that felons and the mentally infirm should be denied the ability to do either because either action entails significant dangers to society when undertaken by these individuals.

It’s a simple compromise that has the elegance of solving two problems with a single methodology, thereby increasing efficiency and reducing costs to all. It also has the key benefit of having checks and balances built into it since any changes to the system or procedures that might negatively impact either firearm purchases or voting would similarly affect the other.

Firearms and franchise – the more people understand the similarities between the two, the greater chance there is of a reasonable and rational set of laws regarding either or both.

Religion of Peace?

Go Home Newt

Posted in 2012 Election, Politics on March 29th, 2011

Newt Gingrich is considering running for President in the upcoming 2012 elections – sort of, kind of, maybe…if things look promising.

To that end the politician turned pundit has launched the website NewtExplore2012 to see how Americans feel about his potentially possible candidacy. This an odd move to say the least, especially from an “elder statesman.”

I’m in some doubt as to whether or not he’ll like the response though. Newt Gingrich, once a firebrand and dangerous opponent has, as the years progressed, become more and more “erratic.” Take, for example, his recent speech at the at Cornerstone Church in Texas which included this bit of WTF!?!

“I have two grandchildren Maggie is 11, Robert is 9,” Gingrich said at Cornerstone Church here. “I am convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the nature of America, by the time they’re my age they will be in a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists and with no understanding of what it once meant to be an American.”

I can understand the concern that America might degenerate into Atheism. I can understand the concern that America might be suborned and perverted by Islam. There are forces, well-entrench within our nation, who are actively seeking those destructive goals.

What I’m totally and utterly incapable of understanding is any concern about America devolving into a secular Atheist state that is dominated by radical Islamists.

That’s completely nonsensical! The first thing that the Islamists would do during the course of their rise to power would be to exterminate the Atheists. There’d be none left by the time the Islamists could ever be said to dominate what had replaced America.

Go home, Newt. Go play with those lovely grandchildren; go write some more books; just go while you have some dignity remaining to you and before you embarrass yourself further.

Age can bring great wisdom. It can also, sadly, bring great folly. There’s little joy in watching an American elder suffering from the latter as Mr. Gingrich seems to be suffering.

Stupid Muling Bitch

Posted in Society on March 28th, 2011

Idiots acting as mules for drug dealers often end up carrying vast amounts of drugs inside their bodies, be it in their stomachs, up their asses or, in the case of the female mules, inside their vaginas. It can be more than a little disturbing for the officers or doctors doing the cavity searches. 😉

Now I'm Scared
At First I Found It Fascinating; Now I’m Just Scared.

All over the world this happens and sometimes it’s funny in a sick sort of way. Other times it’s just pathetic and disgusting.

Karin MackaliunasTake, as an example of the pathetic and disgusting, the case of stupid muling bitch, Karin Mackaliunas who crashed her car after allegedly burglarizing the Dunmore Inn in Dunmore, PA.

On March 13, 2011 the sick skank apparently had a whole dealers worth of heroin, transport bags, pharmaceuticals, and money shoved up her vagina at the time of her arrest.

Admittedly, that’s a far better use for her hole than anything that might accidentally results in Mackaliunas reproducing – again – but damn!

Who the hell robs a place and then drives like a fool with their twat stuffed full of drugs?

From The Scranton Times Tribune:

Dunmore police Officer Anthony Cali asked Scranton police Officer Nancy Baumann to detain Karin Mackaliunas, 27, 1609 Mulberry St., at the scene of a crash at the North Seventh Avenue off-ramp Sunday evening.

After her car was towed, Ms. Mackaliunas was ready to leave the scene of the crash when Officer Cali contacted Officer Baumann and asked for Ms. Mackaliunas to be detained because she was suspected of stealing items from the inn.

After searching her for weapons, Officer Baumann found three bags of heroin in Ms. Mackaliunas’ jacket.

But as the officer drove her to Scranton police headquarters to charge her for drug possession, Officer Baumann noticed Ms. Mackaliunas fidgeting in the backseat of the cruiser.

After a struggle with Officer Baumann during a more thorough search at headquarters, Ms. Mackaliunas asked to speak with Sergeant Michael Mayer and told him she had hidden more heroin in her vagina.

A search of Ms. Mackaliunas by a doctor at Community Medical Center turned up 54 bags of heroin, 31 empty bags used to package heroin, 8.5 prescription pills and $51.22.

How fucking stupid or strung out does the piece of filth have to be to rob a place and then drive like a fool, ultimately crashing their car, with their twat stuffed full of drugs?

One is forced to hope that the authorities remove her daughter Kyra from her custody immediately. Who knows who or what this, filth Mackaliunas might get paid to shove up inside one or more the little girl orifices.

Libya – How Long Again?

Posted in Politics on March 27th, 2011

A lot of Americans wonder how long the US military will be involved in trying to decide the outcome of the civil war in Libya. Sadly, it appears that the Obama Regime cannot or will not answer that question. Indeed, they are not even willing to speculate upon the potential range of dates involved – Days? Weeks? Months? Years?

Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Sunday that nobody has “any idea” how long the United States military could be involved in Libya, though he stressed that Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi’s forces have been crippled by U.S.-led airstrikes.

Asked whether he expects the mission to be over by year’s end, Gates said, “I don’t think anybody knows the answer to that.”

Gates discussed the intervention over the course of several interviews Sunday alongside Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. While he declined to give any estimates for how long the United States could be involved, the two officials stressed that significant gains have been made and NATO is taking on a much bigger role.

That makes more than a little sense actually. One would have to have decided upon a set of victory conditions before one could even begin to predict how long it will take to achieve them or have it proved that they cannot be achieved. There’s no visible signs that either the Obama Regime or the UN Security Council has defined those victory conditions.
