There are glitches in the recording, that give that "Tivo Thunderstorm Jamup" look, unfortunately, in the middle of patches of the meat of the speech.
Thanks, Scoop, but I will find his speech, then comment, (techie thingie probably not your fault).
The problem with believing that there are no absolutes is that you can never be absolutely sure that there are no absolutes.
Love this guy, LaPierre, why can't Republican House Reps stand up to obama like he just did. Are they that scared of him...
Barack Obama is saying that the only principled way to make children safe is to make is to make lawful citizens less safe and violent criminals more safe.Statist (a.k.a. Liberal) irrational rationale in a nutshell.
There's[sic] only two reasons for a Federal list on gun owners. To either tax 'em or take 'em.I expect Benghazi Obama wants to do both.
Brilliant of LaPierre to take Obama's attempt at insult (Absolutist) and embrace it for the virtue it really is.
Federal gun ban being introduced:
"(absolutism)...is the basis for all civilization."
Liberals are uncivilized savages so it is no wonder they dismiss absolutes.
If believing that God-given rights CANNOT BE INFRINGED by the Government makes me an 'absolutist', then I R 1.
Doesn't this headline reference one of our biggest problems as a country? 'Reid may allow...'. This guy has too much power.
O'Bammy sees the Constitution as a document of negative liberties. That his buzz phrase for his thinking that our rights come from government not from God. He wants all political power to rest with the President not with the people, the states of Congress. He is a totalitarian wanna-bee in the mold of Chavez and Castro. If we are going to tell the Kenyan usurper "molon labe", he needs to understand that those words....unlike his... are not empty.
God given 'inalienable'. not 'unalienable' rights. Obama knew the difference. Unalienable means 'no rights'.
I saw a iberal reporter say how ridiculous it was that the rightwing would want more guns in schools instead of fewer. I would say to that reporter, "You don't consider putting yourself in the position of being defenceless while someone, or two or more gunman are after YOU or your child in school. You would soon change your mind about having your own gun in a circumstance like that, instead of possibly dying where you stand.
St. Pierre said the same thing he always says, but the stubborn heads have an agenda. Too many liberals cannot even contemplate that Obama is out to remove democracy as we know it now, from America. They have a respect for the office of the Presidency, but can't get past their ideological blind loyalty, to see the danger Obama is taking them to.
I wish St. Pierre would have talked about that. Yet, maybe he thinks more about the politics than a possible agenda.
No, it's "unalienable".
Thank you for sending the Declaration of Independence copy to me.
It sure is heartwarming to know that those who wrote it, and in the times they lived in,are considered, today, as having lived in times as 'not modern' I would prefer their times than today's 'new normal' that reeks of immorality and mockery of our Creator.
Wayne spoke of principal and absolution. Obama's absolution is that he refuses to allow any principal to enter into his or his families lives. This is extremely sad when you consider that the two girls in that home, if you can call it that, have had every single choice they ever though they had, DICTATED TO THEM. They will always know conceit and fear as that has been my experience when dealing with those of this type of mind set. My eldest sister thinks that this BOY is the next best thing since sliced bread. We can be quip and jovial about this at this point, but that would be a form of oblivious acception which can not be tolerated!
He called Obama President. I have not and will not call him that. I do call him Od1ldo or Mr. Obama but nothing else nor will I. Ronald Reagan, while in the Office of the Presidency never removed his suit coat while in the White House. In fact from the time he dressed himself till he went to bed, he wore that suit and coat.. He exclaimed that the reason for that was because the office and the White House belonged to the people. That the people were his employer and they deserved his utmost respect!!
Will the walking pile of vile do that for his employers?
A quote from President Lincoln, from a speech given in Baltimore, April 18, 1864:
"The world has never had a good definition of the word liberty, and the American people, just now, are much in want of one. We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labour; while with others the same word may mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men's labour. Here are two, not only different, but incompatible things, called by the same name--liberty. And it follows that each of the things is, by the representative parties, called by two differnt and incompatible names--liberty and tyranny.."
Ok I just got a failure to send notice on one of my emails to a senator...what's that generic address for senators and congressmen, anyone have it? thx
This was an amazing speech. I dearly hope many, many more in positions of influence will come out and give speech after speech after speech like this. This is heartening.
The most devious thing Obama has ever said (he keeps topping himself) is that those who disagree with him are "absolutists." This from the man who wants to register and confiscate guns--the next most absolutist thing he could do, next to ordering the military to open fire and shoot on American citizens. What's this technique called, ie. calling the kettle black?
Other posters put these below up, and I am forwarding them to every senator and congressman, to let them know WE know, and they better respond unequivocably.
Just one quick note to point out about your comment. When you said "...-the next most absolutist thing he could do, next to ordering the military to open fire and shoot on American citizens."
He's already doing that. Drones are part of the military and he is currently using them to kill Americans abroad without due process.
Does that include the 2250+ Patriotic citizen's that have either disappeared or been tossed in jail, with our cause. By means of drone computer programs designed to SPY on good God fearing American that have the, according to the imperial leader, to speak their mind against this tyranistic putz!
In fact at last count that number had reached 2362 American's locked up for speaking up. Zuckerberg's new search engine is part of this imperialistic NAZI party!
Just so you know. I am not in different to your view, I am merely augmenting it.
Charlie Rangel says, "Some of Southern Areas Have Cultures We Have to Overcome". What arrogance! Northern areas have the highest concentration of Black Americans who have out of wed lock babies, and those who are more educated are moving to the South. So perhaps it is the Northerners that need to re-evaluate because you are losing your population. In fact Southereners see the slow confication of of their rights, in particular of their right to bare arms and Northerners don't even see it. So now who has the culture to overcome, Charlie Rangel.
Wayne LaPierre speaks the truth. Freedom is not free and we are finding it is going to take a fight to keep it. Giddy up!!!!
If you have wondered why so many US Military Generals have been relieved of command lately, here is your answer. This is UNREAL!!!! Pass it on.
It is indeed disturbing. Did Gen Petraus not pass the test? Did General McChrystal not pass the test either.
The progressives have been inside the military complex for years. Warping the system. They are now coming out of the closet and revealing their agenda.
If I read the article right, this question has been around since 1995. No General's name was specifically mentioned, and no one came forward.
I do believe Obama would use this questionnaire to his advantage though.
Good question.I would put nothing past this America hating regime.If this is true,then more of these officers need to step forward and speak up.
Why can't the GOP grow some cojones like LaPierre has? My gosh if they could just stand up & speak the truth, the left would never stand a chance!
I heard Senator Barrasso tonight explaining why we had to give fighter jets, weapons, and billions to Moris of the Egypt Muslim Brotherhood. I thought Barrasso was a good guy, but he made me sick tonight. We won't give Tiwan any help but Muslims is OK.
It is going to come down to We the people and not congress to set thing straight.
And this needs to be demonstrated against. Pres. Morsi is the first, I believe, head of state scheduled to come to the US to see O. for his second term...coming in March. Needs a show of protest. It's necessary, don't you think??
Barrasso is an establishment RINO. Has been for a number of years on a host of issues.
Republicans in solid red states are some of this biggest RINOS out there. Corker and Alexander from Tennessee come to mind as I write this.
McConnell from Kentucky.... Good lord, you would think these guys were Republicans getting elected by the skin of their teeth in the Northeast.
GOP is worthless.
La Pier tells the truth, but he always falls short of being specific as to the reasoning behind the right to bear arms. I have never heard him speak about government tyranny, and the citizens right to defend themselves from government. He is on the politician side of things, so I suppose that he keeps it mild for that reason.
Litmus Test for Top Officers: Willingness to Fire on Americans
It would be consistent with Obama's actions. It seems necessary to ascertain this before enacting gun confiscation.
I wonder then, why these removed officers are not speaking out publicly?
I think it's more important to know where the NCO's and enlisted stand on this subject, officer's can scream orders all day long but , they only matter if the "men" follow them. Besides, "bad" officers are easily dealt with, if you get my drift.
If they are high ranking officers they probably have some idea of what the CIA is involved with, and don't want to be a target. They could also be stripped of their benefits.
