Here They Go, Again!

Have you ever noticed how the left preaches the sermon that they don't want to take away our freedoms and they don't want to rule every aspect of our lives but they just don't have a choice? 

They say they have to have all of this power and control in order to keep us safe and protect us because they are sworn to do so. Actually, they are sworn to uphold the Constitution but they refuse to do that. As a matter of fact, leftist congressmen objected to the reading of our founding document on the floor of the House a few days ago.

They say they are being forced to "touch our junk" in order to keep us safe from a bomb exploding on a plane brought aboard by a terrorist. Did anyone, besides me, notice that there were no bombs on the four planes used in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001?

They say they are being forced to outlaw certain foods in order to protect our health so we won't eat them or feed them to our children. We are now the nation where trans fats are banned so our children can live healthier, longer lives but that's only if they can somehow manage to exit their mother's womb without being murdered by an abortionist.

They say they are being forced to outlaw incandescent light bulbs so we can use mercury filled bulbs in order to save our planet from horrible mankind who daily plots how he can destroy the earth by breathing. This is the height of arrogance: to believe mankind has the power and ability to destroy God's earth.

They say they have to stop offshore oil drilling so there won't be another oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Of course, the loss of thousands of jobs and hundreds of oil rigs is just a by product we have to accept because this action will keep us safe. 

I could go on for hundreds of pages because the list of our government's oppression is endless but I believe I have made my point. There is not a day that goes by that I don't wonder what it was like to live in America when men truly lived free.

And here they go, again...

Carolyn McCarthy readies gun control bill

One of the fiercest gun-control advocates in Congress, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), pounced on the shooting massacre in Tucson Sunday, promising to introduce legislation as soon as Monday.

McCarthy ran for Congress after her husband was gunned down and her son seriously injured in a shooting in 1993 on a Long Island commuter train.

“My staff is working on looking at the different legislation fixes that we might be able to do and we might be able to introduce as early as tomorrow,” McCarthy told POLITICO in a Sunday afternoon phone interview.
Gun control activists cried it was time to reform weapons laws in the United States, almost immediately after a gunman killed six and injured 14 more, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, in Arizona on Saturday.

Many said that people with a history of mental instability, like the alleged shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, should not be able to buy a gun — and no one should be able to buy stockpiles of ammunition used by the 22-year-old assailant.

McCarthy said she plans to confer with House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to see “if we can work something through” in the coming week.

McCarthy’s bill will look to protect ordinary people, she said, but did not offer further details.

“Again, we need to look at how this is going to work, to protect people, certainly citizens, and we have to look at what I can pass,” she said. “I don’t want to give the NRA – excuse the pun – the ammunition to come at me either.”

Pennsylvania Rep. Robert Brady, a Democrat from Philadelphia, told CNN that he also plans to take legislative action. He will introduce a bill that would make it a crime for anyone to use language or symbols that could be seen as threatening or violent against a federal official, including a member of Congress.
