Firearms are a tool. Like any tool, guns can be used for good or for ill. I’ve seen guns used in positive ways thousands, if not tens of thousands, of times in my life. On the other hand, I’ve seen them used for ill less than 10 times.

The media certainly plays up the negative uses of firearms, but rarely shows any kind of positive use. Its obvious the main stream media has an agenda, and that is to create a sense of fear around guns and people who own them.

Bunker Hill

I don’t know why it is, but I’m annoyed when people call today the “Fourth of July.” The actual holiday is Independence Day.

Here in the United States, we do not celebrate the date, but the events that happened around this single date in history. The Revolutionary War began in 1775 – some 15 months prior to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Unfortunately, this basic fact has been lost in the modern educational system and many of the adults walking around are ignorant of it.

dump trump

The lack of civility in the political process is disheartening to say the least. While Trump would appear to be the poster child for schoolyard bullying tactics, Sanders supporters have been equally vile – and sometimes violent – toward Trump supporters.

And let’s not forget Clinton. She has lied about everything, claiming that those that disagree with her are the real problem.

So, any chance we had at getting a candidate that had the Constitution and freedom at the core of his or her campaign died with the Libertarian Party over the weekend.

Instead of nominating a freedom minded candidate, the LP instead went for a guy who thinks it is ok for the government to force a Jewish baker to make a Nazi cake.

So, I was reading a new article over at Fox (a news source that has less and less credibility with me) about Iraqi soldiers trying to retake Fallujah from Isis.

Quick geography lesson: Fallujah is smack dab in the center of Iraq, and next door neighbors to Baghdad, the country’s capital city and location of our $750 BILLION embassy. (Yeah – 3/4 of a TRILLION dollars.)

Trump Election

So here we are, hip deep in the 2016 presidential campaign season. The two main candidates are probably the weakest candidates ever fielded by either party. Both are New York 1%-ers that most people in the country can’t really relate to.

Clinton Presidential Campaign

Granted – Clinton has a lot of baggage while Trump is more or less a clean slate, but both candidates have astronomical negative polling. Seriously, it almost looks like a race to the bottom.

obama oopsHmmmmmm . . . . . . .

In his convention speech in Charlotte, President Obama vowed to block the Republican Medicare reform plan because “no American should ever have to spend their golden years at the mercy of insurance companies.”

But back in Washington, his Health and Human Services Department is launching a pilot program that would shift up to 2 million of the poorest and most-vulnerable seniors out of the federal Medicare program and into private health insurance plans overseen by the states.

The administration has accepted applications from 18 states to participate in the program, which would give states money to purchase managed-care plans for people who are either disabled or poor enough to qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid. HHS approved the first state plan, one for Massachusetts, last month.

You know the God and Jerusalem vote the lefties took last night at their little convention thingie? This would be the one where they had to use a bit of voter fraud in order to force amendments so they could claim they acknowledge God and the fact Jerusalem is the capitol of Israel during their pow wow.  Supposedly the Dem’s change in attitude toward God and the capitol of Israel came about because of Obama’s personal views on both and his intervention to get the amendments passed.
