The Sunshine Civil Libertarian.

In my now forty years I have honestly never met a person left, right or in-between who did not claim to be a staunch defender of Civil Liberties.  With that said I have also never met a person who is honestly a true defender of Civil Liberties.  To those who are currently gasping in outrage please continue reading and you may understand my point… maybe, but probably not.  For those easily offended be warned, there is incredibly foul and offensive language in this blog posting… oddly enough something protected as free speech.  Printing foul language is something rare for me I know but you will understand why.

Starve the military! Feed the hungry!

Every so often a person is confronted with the type of naïve bleeding heart idiocy that you are only left shaking your head and wondering how it is a person who considers themselves to be rational can come up with such an argument.  This was a recent experience in my life.  To start off I’m ex-military, my son is in the Army, my father is a vet as is my grandfather multiple aunts and uncles.  Several cousins are active duty or ex-military so I am not completely unbiased in my opinion.  Oh and I function using something I like to call facts and logic so that also impacts my views on such silliness.

545491_10151044314572150_1786870694_n[1]This is an example of the type of inane arguments that we, as conservatives, must face on a daily basis.  The text is simple but the meaning is not.  “The money required to eradicate hunger for everyone in the world has been estimated at 30 billion dollars a year…about as much as the world spends on the military every eight days” with the image of a US Air Force B2 Spirit Bomber dropping bombs on a starving child.  The inclusion of an American bomber wipes out the word World and leaves the impression America in it’s place.  This is, of course, intentional since in the minds of globalist liberals we are the cause of the worlds problems.  Somehow the fact that we are successful causes many other parts of the world to be unsuccessful.  A significant leap in logic which assumes that there is a set level of global wealth and that in order for us to be a wealthy nation other nations must be poor.  Absolutely insane if you take a moment to think about it, but again that is what we have to deal with.

TSA the alternate universe.

There are two recent stories involving the TSA which tell you everything you need to know about where our current Administration stands on terrorism.  First a United States Marine who had lost his legs in combat fighting terrorists was subjected to a thorough search which even went so far as to require him to remove his prosthetic legs for inspection.  Second the DHS/TSA are allowing Saudi Arabian airline passengers to “speed their way” through security.  Continue reading

Insurance for gun owners.

The state of New York would like to force it’s citizens to buy liability insurance in order to own a gun.  This is being push by some as “common sense” measures to save lives.  Not really sure why new regulations, more red tape, spending more money and making it more difficult to legally own a gun will somehow effect criminals in a positive manner.  How many people actually think that a crack dealer will run out and submit to a universal background check, take a gun class, pay for a permit and then buy insurance?  I’m sorry but if you believe that “here’s your sign”.

No charges

According to a recent article on FoxNews.com there will be no charges filed against the father of the child who posted a photograph of his son holding a rifle.  Um… good!  The father committed no crime, the child committed no crime and if there were any crimes committed they were on the part of the person making the false report and the authorities who treated this family like criminals for doing absolutely nothing wrong.

Growth and Opportunity Project

Forgive me but this new Growth and Opportunity Project from the GOP may very well be the final nail in the coffin for the GOP as far as I’m concerned.  I challenge anyone to actually read what this “project” is about and tell me that it is not traditional Democrat Party nonsense rebranded as Republican.  Nothing more than empty “feel good” politics which do not solve any problems other than to keep certain members of the Republican Political Establishment in power.  John McCain, Lindsay Graham and etc.  Those wonderful Progressive Republicans who like to jump on the bandwagon of those who claim that it is us Conservatives and Libertarians who are coopting the party.  The simple truth is that the party used to be what we are now.
