Karl Marx summed up Communism as “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” This is a good, pithy saying, which, in practice, has succeeded in bringing, upon those under its sway, misery, poverty, rape, torture, slavery, and death. [Read Here]

While Senator Dianne Feinstein flounces through the ether waving her absurd list of weapons to be banned under her new anti-gun legislation, the nation should be watching the “other hand” in Barack Obama’s unconstitutional gun grab. The regulators and intimidators.
Eric Holder and Rahm Emanuel come to mind.
The Justice Department is taking the first steps toward carrying out President Obama’s executive actions on gun control.
Attorney General Eric Holder on Friday released three proposals to strengthen the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), which was one of the 23 actions ordered by Obama last week to tackle gun violence.
The proposed regulations would give local law-enforcement agencies access to the gun-sale database that is maintained by the FBI. The rules would also preserve records of denied weapons sales indefinitely. [More]
In Chicago, the nation’s gun violence capitol, Rahm Emanuel is now pressuring banks (with plenty of help from the White House) into cutting off financing to firearms manufacturers.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns and the guy in charge of the gun controlled murder capitol of America, is planning to pressure banks into cutting off their business with firearms manufactures according to POLITICO:
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, moving to take a lead role in the gun control debate, is turning up the pressure on banks that do business with firearms manufacturers. Emanuel is sending letters to two major financial institutions, TD Bank and Bank of America, which offer lines of credit to gun makers suggesting that they stop lending money to the manufacturers if they don’t come out for new gun restrictions….
“Doing business with gun manufacturers might benefit the banks’ bottom line, but they put our police officers, our children and our communities at risk,” said the mayor.
This is astounding. Emanuel is using the power of his office with the backing of the White House agenda to not only bully private industries but to eventually kill them off. As Dianne Feinstein said yesterday, the goal is to “dry up the supply of these weapons over time.” [More]
This is frustrating on several counts: 1) A democracy cannot function without an unbiased press to hold the politicians to account, and we no longer have that medium. 2) Obama has already demonstrated his disdain for private enterprise and is sidestepping Congress at every opportunity to control by intimidation companies that depend on government cooperation: banks, pharmaceutical manufacturers, etc.
The United States is the only democracy in the world that has the Right to Bear Arms built into its very foundation. Nowhere else in the world do citizens have this Right.
The Second Amendment is not just an article included within the Bill of Rights: it was second only to Freedom of Speech in the Framers’ minds. Not for hunting, not for home protection. It was built into our foundation as a safeguard against foreign invasion and government tyranny.
The Left has been desperately trying to disarm U.S. citizens for five decades and they now have a leader who is willing to trample the Constitution to do it.
Stand on your rights America and think positive thoughts. Take deep breaths and don’t let your emotions take control. Mental exercises work, prayer helps; God has not forgotten us. Above all, keep a sense of humor.
Memo to Regular Guys: Don’t take out your frustrations on innocents: your wife, children, house pets, the illegal alien who mows your lawn, and so forth. Keep the old karma in lubed.
Instead, whenever Barack gets on your nerves trampling the Constitution you can go to sleep at night knowing you could probably kick his ass.
Which is really something, when you think about it, because Regular Right Guy would hazard a guess that most regular guys could not kick the asses of most guys who draw flies.
Okay, he’s president, so you can’t just go out and do that. But if not for the Secret Service, FBI, United States Marshal Service, CIA, FEMA armies, regular army regulars who don’t mind killing Americans, and Rahm Emanuel (he has a black belt in ballet), you could kick the President’s ass.
Warning: Do even think about this out loud, though, because Barry will have you arrested. Excuse me for a sec; someone’s knocking at my door.
