Second Amendment rights

From what Marc Danziger says on Facebook, the Supreme Court doesn't agree that the Second Amendment doesn't provide a constitutionally guaranteed right to own a gun. So, at some point, is Supreme Leader Obama (President for Life) going to bring in 20 or 30,000 mercenaries from the Central African Republic and the Congo, give them Viagra, AK-47's, and thousands of rounds of ammunition. They would be sent door to door to collect all the guns and do whatever else they would like. Actually, they would need a much larger force to do the job. Even attempting to confiscate guns would mean a civil war. I know too many guys in Texas with AR-15's or AK-47's and ten or fifteen thousand rounds buried in the back yard. I am sure that there are a lot more in other states, as well. Obama would need the Taliban, Al Qaeda, the Mexican drug cartels, and the big city street gangs to even think about confiscating guns.

The Vought Crusader III

There is some weird political story behind the Vought Crusader III. A small batch of aircraft was built and they were flown from Patuxant Naval Air Station for a time. The pilots delighted in showing the aircraft's superiority to the F-4 Phantom. Those demonstrations angered a political backer of the F-4 and he forced the navy to scrap the Vought Crusader III's so that there was no chance that anyone would want to produce the aircraft as a competitor to the Phantom. I would be interested to know who it was that forced the scrapping.

We seem to be in a bad spot

I joke about this, but I think that President Obama plans to stay in power after 2016. I call him "Supreme Leader Obama, President for Life" only half-jokingly. After another decade or so of his rule, we will be almost as good as Venezuela. I am an odd sort, as I am not a Communist and am not a right-wing extremist. My parents were both Rockefeller Republicans. I am the sort that both the Communists and right-wing extremists want to stomp out. I am perfectly happy to keep living under the "benign" rule of Supreme Leader Obama. I don't want to see a fight. My concern is that when President Obama stays in power, that will provoke a fight. The one really wild card out there is the Yellowstone volcano. I expect that it will blow sometime relatively soon and everything will be devastated.

Dallas-centric stuff

Many people in Dallas hate John Wiley Price. He is the gadfly, black, Democratic Dallas County Commissioner. And yes, he is probably a crook. Obama's justice department has been harassing John Wiley Price for three years. They only want to neutralize him, not to indict him (seemingly). John Wiley Price and some Hispanic Democrat women judges are the only ones in the city of Dallas and Dallas County that are willing to stand up to the white, millionaire Democrats, mostly trial lawyers, who run the city of Dallas and Dallas County now. Their strategy is to gentrify as much as they can to drive out the poor people of color. One of the first things that they had Mayor Mike Rawlings do is to get the Black homeless of the streets of Dallas. If the rich, while millionaire Democrats don't "own you", you will have a hard time getting elected in Dallas. If they do own you, you will be floating in money. John Wiley Price really is "our man downtown", because he is one of the few independent voices left. Even Domingo Garcia is out there begging Lisa Blue to pick him up and he will do whatever she wants. That is the world we live in, whether you like it or not.

The Zimmerman trial

You can tell that I am a low-information person. I did not get the word that I was supposed to think that Trayvon Martin was supposed to be in the gated community. Trayvon Martin apparently did not send the text messages where he said he was going to kill someone. This was a situation where George Zimmerman was out looking for trouble and followed Trayvon Martin (who still looked like he did when he was 13, not as he actually looked at 17). George Zimmerman stalked Trayvon Martin, attacked him, knocking him down, and started beating on him. After a while, he thought it would be fun to shoot Trayvon Martin and he did. It was obviously Trayvon Martin who was screaming for help. The people who want to lynch George Zimmerman and leave his body hanging from a tree certainly believe all that. Apparently, President Obama at least pretends that he believes it as well.

A member of the team

We have a friend who considers herself to be a good left-wing person. What she really is, is a member of the Democrat and Obama team. She identifies with the team and wants them to win. She learns what the current talking points are and uses those to guide her speech and thinking. She doesn't care if the current team talking points violate her principles, because she is only interested in seeing the team win.

Ted Rall is a real left-wing hero. He is not a team member and he is principled and does not want to see his principles violated by politicians. I am surprised that Supreme Leader Obama (president for life) has not either sent Ted Rall off to a Gulag or else has had a drone fire Hellfire missiles at him.

Hey, the IRS business is no big deal

The IRS investigating conservative groups was no big deal. They were only doing what they thought that the president wanted them to do.
