Wake up America, listen to his words not what he says; oBummer puts "straw men" in his speeches and uses words that are all inclusive and if you can't see it then he sounds creditable. Ask the question WHO is he talking about when you listen to his speech, because he never answers the question?
I have said it dozens of times. Gun control is just a diversion created by the democrats, it just doesn't work since criminals use illegal weapons. Let's get to the real issues, unemployment, job creation, reducing the deficit and the republicans must NOT CAVE IN to Obamas demands. He thinks he can do anything to this country and he is probably the worst president we've ever had, similar to Jimmy Carter.
We are all so tired of his "bulls--t" about everything. This lying SOB got no attention from the mainstream press over the 4 deaths in Benghazi, but Notre Dame's Teo's lies about his dead girlfriend was ALL OVER every news outlet yesterday and today.
Surprise, they already did when they allowed him a second term. There were a number of ways they could have stopped this. Two of them were Speaker Newt Gingrich or Gov. Sarah Palin. Instead they split their vote between Gingrich and sanctimonious Santorum who is not even on the same hemisphere as Gingrich in terms of smarts and accomplishments. But because he was self righteous and beat on his Bible he peeled away votes from Gingrich who could have beat Romney. After Palin hired an advisor who no doubt measured her lack of support, she didn't even bother to run.
Since conservatives do not know how to stick together and elect someone based on what is really important instead of the intolerant, judgmental attitude, I'd say they got what they deserved.
Republicans are already falling prey to the NRA compromises. Federal background checks for all gun sales is the same thing as registration of all guns. The NRA is wrong, and if I was not willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, I would think that they were just playing their part. The time for playing politics with our rights is over. They are willing to give up ground to these liberal control freaks.
I would love to be able to get behind the NRA completely, but the are soft, and are sucking conservatives into compromise, just like all the RINOs do.
Do you really want the federal government to create a national "no buy" list on guns? Sound familiar? Yeah, if you think that they feds will not start refusing people that they deem to be a possible threat from buying guns with this list, then you are as gullible as the poor suckers who want our guns taken. You already have a homeland security file, and are rated as a certain level of threat. Where do you think that they get the info to deny people to fly?
The NRA is suckering conservatives into giving the feds more power over their freedoms. If you are willing to go down this road, then you may as well hand them in now.
Obama has a King complex. Who said that and what does he intend to do about it?
One GOP Senator has guts - Rand Paul plans to squash Obama's 'King Complex'
Let`s put some Faith in the rookies in congress. Contact them, offer you support and prayers, and make them aware that we are watching and paying more and more attention. Their mission is to TAKE OUR GREAT NATION BACK from those who seek Her demise, so we can preserve INTACT the FREEDOMS we all share for the generations to come. After all, teams around the NFL gave rookies a chance this year, and what a great season it has been for tons of `em !!!
I know Scoop doesn't like people doing long copy and paste jobs but:

2. It's groovy.
From one of our Michigan State Senators regarding "The Michigan Firearms Freedom Act".
Here it is:
In response to national threats against our second amendment rights, I have introduced Senate Bill 63 in the Michigan Senate to create the Michigan Firearms Freedom Act.
Our citizens have a right to protect themselves in their own homes and communities. Sadly, the proposals announced yesterday by President Obama would do little to address those concerns while weakening our Constitutional right to bear arms.
The Firearms Freedom Act, if passed into law, would send a clear message to Washington that the people of Michigan - not the federal government - will decide their own destiny. The act would reaffirm Michigan's right to regulate intrastate commerce, and clarify that firearms, firearm accessories, and ammunition produced, bought, and sold in Michigan will not be subject to federal overreach that would seek to impose new regulations and onerous mandates on states. This is not just a second amendment issue; it is also imperative that we rightfully defend our state's sovereignty as guaranteed in the tenth amendment.
Today, I am proud to stand with hardworking, law abiding Michiganders who rightfully own a gun. I hope you will join me in sending a message to the President and Congress that Michigan will defend what belongs to her.
Moving forward, we will engage in a serious conversation about real solutions that keep our communities safe without diminishing the integrity of our Constitution.
Note: Ain't that somethin'? What's good for the goose is good for the Michigander.
Why? This helps sell it silly. All three branches are Republican in Michigan now, plus the Secretary Of State.

Very interesting reading indeed - do have a look!
One of our favorite Michigan State Senators, Dave Agema, facebooked this morning that he wanted to know where he could get an AR-15.
He used to be a fighter pilot.
Shortly thereafter the Senate introduced "The Michigan Firearms Freedom Act".
Let`s put some Faith in the rookies in congress. Contact them, offer you support and prayers, and make them aware that we are watching and paying more and more attention. Their mission is to TAKE OUR GREAT NATION BACK from those who seek Her demise!!! Find out Agema`s call sign as a pilot if you can and let me know...we may have mutual friends....
This article can be a turning point. Two candidates are essentially eliminating their cadencies- Marco Rubio and Chris Christie. Two politicians from blue States who give lip service to the gun control rhetoric spewed and shaped by none other than Barack Obama. Christie saying he doesn’t think armed guards should be in schools and Rubio saying that he would revisit gun control laws right after the Sandy Hook school massacre. All because of extreme liberal rhetoric led by Barack Obama. As a side note, John Boehner and incidentally Paul Ryan and Romney are all politicians from blue states and we have plenty of evidence showing that these republicans from blue States never work out well in delivering and articulating the conservative message. But the central theme is that they often turn out to promote a watered down version of Conservatism under the slightest bit of scrutiny and challenge.
I mean we scratch our heads asking who and why set-up a Republican debate with George Stephanopoulos as moderator?! Well the person who did that was Rence Prebius. No one who is a real Conservative would even think of doing something as asinine as that- but Prebius did. Moreover, losing a Presidential election with him at the helm means he should resign because that didn’t work out so well. I see that Karl Rove is back. He was on Hannity last night and that is another walking and talking disaster, yet an unelected one. Moreover, what's worse is that the GOP will self-destruct if we continue to take advice from consultants, who were ex-Clinton consultants (Title and link below). It appears to me that if we continue to go down this path of selecting republicans from blue states we give them permission to water down the conservative message to the point of making it none effective. At least have a revolving door were conservative republicans from red states have the opportunity to govern and represent the conservative point of view. This means that republicans from red States MUST be more aggressive and demand that their voices be heard.
Title: Viewed as out of touch, GOP gathers forces to plot rebirth
What is missing is strategy: what to do to get this guy out of office. One grand plan. Do you have it?
A strategy requires new thinking and these RINOs are not capable of new thinking. So with Senators like Sen. Cruz, who bring judicial, legislative, and Constitutional experience a strategy forward can be developed. Simple!
What we've seen though is what happens when we wait for the wheels to turn--it gets worse. Think we need a strategy for immediately. Cruz and legislators, West and poliitical voices need to make one plan--one large Articles Of Impeachment drafted and one giant coordinated campaign to sell it to the public, and large scale public march on Washington by those of us behind it show the mandate?
Can we convince Cruz, West, others to do so? Ginrich attended a rally in Washington and went on TV about last year, remember? They all need to stage it>
XLNT POINT market....I just emailed Cruz, our freshman Senator from Texas, after watching the video of Zo and Allen West at another post on this site, and couldn`t agree with you more!!!! Contact @ cruz.senate.gov
Is there a way to get each Republican congress-member to group sponsor "50 Articles of Impeachment," and get the most impact for all the issues all at once? Then we the public could come out and lend support with all we've got, all at once?
GREAT IDEA!!!The Impeachment pot is beginning to boil. Contact your states Reps in Congress by typing their last name.house.gov for House of Representatives and their last name.senate.gov for senators. Here are 2 from Texas you can contact for a start: thornberry.house.gov for Mac Thornberry, and cruz.senate.gov for Ted Cruz. As far as sites I can give you 2 for a start: teamlaw.net and infowars.
Thanks, TexasPGRRider! I love Ted Cruz and he is the one who made that point! I just hope he doesn't get co-opted by the RINOs!
The problem with most Republicans in Congress is that they always punt on these issues, cause either O or the MSM label them as extremist that want to hurt the country. Every time they cave they are giving up the core ideas and principles of what should be the Republican Party. Everytime a crisis is coming they always talk a big game but end up saying that this is not the time, the next crisis will be more advantageous and when the next crisis comes up they say the exact same thing. Like with the fiscal cliff. The establishment said "oh this not the time, we'll have more leverage during the debt ceiling". Now you hear the establishment saying that the debt ceiling is not the time we'll have more leverage during the continuing resolution. When will it be time?
From Tea Party Command Center
Food for thought!
You're sound asleep when you hear
a thump outside your bedroom door.
Half-awake, and nearly paralyzed with fear,
you hear muffled whispers.
At least two people have broken into your
house and are moving your way.
With your heart pumping, you reach down
beside your bed and pick up your shotgun.
You rack a shell into the chamber, then inch
toward the door and open it.
In the darkness, you make out two shadows.
One holds something that looks like a crowbar.
When the intruder brandishes it as if to strike,
you raise the shotgun and fire.
The blast knocks both thugs to the floor.
One writhes and screams while the second
man crawls to the front door and lurches outside.
As you pick up the telephone to call police,
you know you're in trouble.
In your country, most guns were outlawed years
before, and the few that are privately owned
are so stringently regulated as to make them useless.
Yours was never registered.
Police arrive and inform you
that the second burglar has died.
They arrest you for First Degree Murder
and Illegal Possession of a Firearm.
When you talk to your attorney, he tells
you not to worry: authorities will probably
plea the case down to manslaughter.
"What kind of sentence will I get?" you ask.
"Only ten-to-twelve years,"
he replies, as if that's nothing.
"Behave yourself, and you'll be out in seven."
The next day, the shooting is the lead
story in the local newspaper.
Somehow, you're portrayed as an eccentric
vigilante while the two men you shot
are represented as choirboys.
Their friends and relatives can't find
an unkind word to say about them.
Buried deep down in the article, authorities acknowledge that both "victims" have been arrested numerous times.
But the next day's headline says it all:
"Lovable Rogue Son Didn't Deserve to Die."
The thieves have been transformed from career criminals into Robin Hood-type pranksters.
As the days wear on, the story takes wings.
The national media picks it up,
then the international media.
The surviving burglar has become a folk hero.
Your attorney says the thief is preparing
to sue you, and he'll probably win.
The media publishes reports that your home has been burglarized several times in the past and that you've been critical of local police for their lack
of effort in apprehending the suspects.
After the last break-in, you told your neighbor
that you would be prepared next time.
The District Attorney uses this to allege
that you were lying in wait for the burglars.
A few months later, you go to trial.
The charges haven't been reduced,
as your lawyer had so confidently predicted.
When you take the stand, your anger at
the injustice of it all works against you.
Prosecutors paint a picture of you
as a mean, vengeful man.
It doesn't take long for the jury to convict
you of all charges.
The judge sentences you to life in prison.
This case really happened.
On August 22, 1999, Tony Martin of Emneth, Norfolk , England , killed one burglar and wounded a second.
In April, 2000, he was convicted
and is now serving a life term.
How did it become a crime to defend one's
own life in the once great British Empire ?
It started with the Pistols Act of 1903.
This seemingly reasonable law forbade selling pistols to minors or felons and established that handgun sales were to be made only to those who had a license. The Firearms Act of 1920 expanded licensing to include not only handguns but all firearms except shotguns.
Later laws passed in 1953 and 1967 outlawed the carrying of any weapon by private citizens and mandated the registration of all shotguns.
Momentum for total handgun confiscation began in earnest after the Hungerford mass shooting in 1987. Michael Ryan, a mentally disturbed man with a Kalashnikov rifle, walked down the streets shooting everyone he saw.
When the smoke cleared, 17 people were dead.
The British public, already de-sensitized by eighty years of "gun control", demanded even tougher restrictions. (The seizure of all privately owned handguns was the objective even though Ryan used a rifle.)
Nine years later, at Dunblane , Scotland , Thomas Hamilton used a semi-automatic weapon to murder 16 children and a teacher at a public school.
For many years, the media had portrayed all gun owners as mentally unstable or worse, criminals. Now the press had a real kook with which to beat up law-abiding gun owners. Day after day, week after week, the media gave up all pretense of objectivity and demanded a total ban on all handguns. The Dunblane Inquiry, a few months later, sealed the fate of the few sidearms still owned by private citizens.
During the years in which the British government incrementally took away most gun rights, the notion that a citizen had the right to armed self-defense came to be seen as vigilantism. Authorities refused to grant gun licenses to people who were threatened, claiming that self-defense was no longer considered a reason to own a gun. Citizens who shot burglars or robbers or rapists were charged while the real criminals were released.
Indeed, after the Martin shooting, a police spokesman was quoted as saying, "We cannot have people take the law into their own hands."
All of Martin's neighbors had been robbed numerous times, and several elderly people were severely injured in beatings by young thugs who had no fear of the consequences. Martin himself, a collector of antiques, had seen most of his collection trashed or stolen by burglars.
When the Dunblane Inquiry ended, citizens who owned handguns were given three months to turn them over to local authorities.
Being good British subjects, most people obeyed the law. The few who didn't were visited by police and threatened with ten-year prison sentences if they didn't comply.
Police later bragged that they'd taken nearly 200,000 handguns from private citizens.
How did the authorities know who had handguns?
The guns had been registered and licensed.
Kind of like cars Sound familiar?
WAKE UP AMERICA ; THIS IS WHY OUR FOUNDING FATHERS PUT THE SECOND AMENDMENT IN OUR CONSTITUTION.
"..It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds.."
Just checking in to let everyone know I'm alive. Just not chatty today. Kinda sleepy. SO, howdy all.
Have someone grab a strumpet, I mean trumpet, I mean bugle, and play Reveille in your ear.
It works better than Starbucks.
This entire article can be summed up with a single term: "jamming".
Militant homosexuals have been using these techniques for years. They even wrote a book detailing how they would do it. It's called "After the Ball: How America Will Conquer it's Fear & Hatred of Gays in the 90's"
The media was asleep apparently.
1) The first stage is desensitization --acclimating the culture to the "virtues" of their cause. Even inventing false narratives of oppression and imagined cultural violence.
2) The second stage is called "jamming" -- it's an attempt to paint the opposition as bigoted and hateful thus silencing their position. The idea is to use carefully crafted words and phrases that paint the opposition in the worst light thus keeping them pinned back on their heels. That's why they invoke words like homophobe, xenophobe, racist, intolerant, hitler, et al.
3) The third stage is conversion -- this is when the opposition is defeated through years of desensitization. The scales of public opinion tilt in the sodomite's favor and the "voice of reason" is silenced. At least until the sodomite's behavior catches up with him and the gig is up.
That's why so many people today "approve" of counterfeit marriage. Homosexuals have desensitized the culture to it. Mainly because the media defends it and no one on the other side rebukes it. And because we lack a moral ethic to ground our worldviews in anymore, the door is wide open for them to seize the country including our children's schools with their perversion.
And it works. So why stop?
Can someone tell why the republimorons don't just say f it? I mean if you capitulate you will be destroyed so why the hell not go down in a blaze of glory. Not fighting makes you look weak. When you look weak no one has respect for you which means you're finished. Demand respect and use your power and you will have more of both. Respect and power.
Maybe it's because secretly, in the back rooms of bar rooms and Country Clubs where they discuss these things, they agree with him but they can't be seen publicly fighting against the goads of those that elected them.
If this last election cycle proved one thing, it's that the GOP is just as complicit in the evil and destruction of this nation as any godless radical. They use the same methods and essentially believe the same things. They're just not as militant about it.
Well said, Jen.
One point people must be made aware of: "We’re going to need voices in those areas, in those congressional districts, where the tradition of gun ownership is strong to speak up and to say this is important."
These 'voices' will be 'voices' along the lines of those organisations who find one or two families demanding that prayer, or a picture of Jesus, be removed from their school. One or two voices - huge impact thanks to the ScreamingLyingMeejah.
The POS' aim is not a dialogue, a debate - it is to get 'community organisers' organising the desired outcry against gun ownership - for the kiddies' sake. It is about manipulation and of frightening people into silence.
And then the Beltway pundits will pick it up - and then another little bit of your liberties will be taken away - for the sake of the kiddies.
Btw, seen on twitter: have kids been writing letters to Obama about the debt they will have to bear, thanks to him? If not - perhaps they should! After all, he seems to like to make politics when kids ask him to ...
Although, in a fun relationship, it isn't unusual for one of those actions to lead to the other. LOL
I'll have to check it out but I am quite partial to scantily clad woman. I'd say I'm a lover not a fighter but that would be a lie. I am 50 / 50 on that . I like to do both, but never at the same time. Too distracting.
The MET Office has been caught out, juggling their data, time and again, and they've had egg on their faces for ridiculous forecasts, all based on their AGW computer models. Like saying we'll have a barbecue summer, and it rained cats and dogs. Or this year, when they told us in april it would be hot and there would be draughts until the end of the year. Yeah - second wettest year on record, that was, 2012!
When they tell us it'll be hot, we say - buy wellies and raincoats. When they say it'll be cold, we laugh.
The Daily Telegraph online doesn't have hotties, but the comments are very good, and the blogs are even better. Worth having a look.
The Met isn't much loved, is it? I read Home Mail Online, a Brit site everyday to keep up with your politics and hotties in bikinis which they show lots of.
No, not any more - these Isles were literally covered in the white stuff in2009/10 and 2010/11:
That's an official Met Office satellite photo. We had a foot of snow in the south, the icicles on the roofs were nearly a yard long, it was freezing for days and days.
The housewolf hated it, she was in snow well over her tummy!
People here have been buying sledges like mad; I've got crampons to pull over my boots: we're all very well prepared, we're looking forward to it.
If it doesn't snow, the Met Office will be torched!
We are too. We are expecting 5-6 inches. Of course, in MD we are used to it. I imagine some Brits down south may be confused by the white rain that doesn't wash away.
