Texas

And…so it begins!

Found this over at Young Americans for Liberty.  Apparently, a Louisiana man was pulled over and detained by the local Ball, LA police department because he had a Gadsden Flag bumper sticker.  So – I googled it and found more on this story:

from Free Republic – Louisiana Citizen detained for Displaying “Don’t Tread on Me” bumper sticker that leads to an article from

The American Vision – Man Detained for Displaying “Don’t Tread on Me” bumper sticker – a little more detail than the link above.

and from The World Net Daily – Suspect detained over “extremist” bumper sticker – a little more detail here.  Apparently, the police officer warned him about his “subversive survivalist bumper sticker” and that it sends a “subversive message.”  He was detained on the side of the road for 30 minutes while this officer ran a background check to see if he was part of an extremist group.

While I don’t generally link back to any articles from the WND since they do sometimes go over the top – this is not a story that originated with them.  However, they did some follow-up and was able to add more detail than the other stories.

People – the crackdown on our freedoms is starting.  Since when is one of the greatest symbols of American independence now considered to be “extremist?”  While Gadsden designed the flag – Benjamin Franklin was very instrumental in getting the message out.  Apparently, according to this administration – it is subversive and extremist to believe in individual liberty and freedom.  I guess not wanting the government to take care of us from cradle to grave amounts to being a domestic terrorist.

There are several measures running through Congress right now that could potentially limit many of the freedoms guaranteed in our Constitution.  The Fairness Doctrine is coming back – but – it’s not being called that – and the government is trying to use a backdoor approach to it.  Here is one story from the LA Times and this one from Human Events and this one from Judicial Watch.  If these new FCC rules get implemented – you can kiss Conservative Talk-radio good-bye.  This would be a direct violation of our First Amendment rights – but – the government controls the airwaves – so – they get to regulate them using the commerce clause in the 10th Amendment.  Funny how they don’t attempt to regulate the print media or TV news to ensure “balance.”

The Blair Holt Act that has been introduced by Bobby Rush in Congress would effectively strip away our 2nd Amendment rights using a backdoor approach as well and then there is this international Treaty that would effectively take all guns out of American hands.  The good news about this is that Montana has just signed in a law that challenges the Federal Government and exerts its sovereignty as a state.  Following closely behind them are Utah, Oklahoma, Texas, and Tennessee.  We need to get all of the states involved in this one and tell the Federal Government to get the hell out of our business.

I am urging everyone to do a couple things here – 1.) call all of your state representatives and tell them you want them to introduce and pass legislation similar to that of Montana’s, 2.) call all of your Senators and Congressmen and tell them to vote against any proposals such as the one’s I’ve outlined above that would infringe upon the 2nd Amendment in any way, and 3.) Joine a 9.12 Project group in your area or some other meet-up group in your area and become active and stay on top of what is going on in D.C.  If WE THE PEOPLE stay vigilant and educate ourselves – big government can’t trample on our rights.

The Federal Government is moving at the speed of light right now on this road to Socialism.  It’s almost impossible to try to keep up with absolutely everything they are doing.  The only way we can stop this is to join together and to talk about it, educate everyone, and keep your eyes on the ball.  This administration is a master of distraction – they get you looking one way while they sneak something in the other way.  While our attention is on the little stuff – they start introducing the big stuff that affects us all…and…by the time we see what has happened behind our backs – it is too late.

This isn’t a Republican versus Democrat thing or a Liberal versus Conservative thing – this is an American thing.  I know our Liberal brothers and sisters out there don’t want their freedoms taken away either – but – unless some of them come to their senses – they will be right there in the same boat with us Conservatives.  Big Government means everything is controlled and regulated – even for you Libs out there that say you espouse your personal liberties and Freedoms.  While we Conservatives may have a different view point on some of the social issues – the fact of the matter is that what it boils down to is that we all want the same thing – Freedom from interference by our Government.

What I don’t understand – since it is an oxymoron – is why you Liberals who so want your freedom to do as you please – also want big government.  That makes no sense to me.  For the last 8 years all you did was complain about every single law passed under the Bush administration shouting that it is an infringement on your rights.  Yet, you elect a President who has just now committed the largest power grab in the history of this country and has nationalized our financial system, our auto industry, and is looking to nationalize our press and energy sectors.  Do you not see what is happening?  You have elected a President that believes in Fascism and Socialism – things that you guys are supposed to be against.  Things that go directly against our personal freedom to choose as individuals our own fate.

Don’t get me wrong here – if McCain had gotten in – we’d still be in the same boat – and – I would still be having the same discussions with you guys.  This two-party system will be the demise of this country – and – Obama is taking us there on a rocket.  If you’re interested – there is another way – The American Conservative Party.  I’m still looking in to this group as well.  As some of you know – I joined the Constitution Party as they were closer in line to my values than any other party thus far.  However – this emerging party could be my final resting place.  Take a look for yourselves.  We can thank Texas Fred for bringing this new party to our attention.

Okay people – buckle up! It looks like the Dems have now decided that since they can’t ban your guns – they will go around the Second Amendment and make it impossible for you to actually use your gun!

First up – h/t to Becky Blanton for this one – The next assault on your rights is called The Ammunition Accountablity Act.  The purpose of this bill is to make it impossible for you to buy ammunition for your guns.  It seeks to have all ammunition encoded for the purpose of keeping track of sales of all ammunition.  This way they can keep track of what type of ammunition (caliber) and the amount.

  1. Nobody can sell any ammunition after June 30, 2009 unless the ammunition has been encoded
  2. If you own any un-encoded ammunition – you will have to destroy that by July 1, 2011 otherwise it becomes a Federal offense to own un-encoded ammunition.  This also includes hand-loaded ammunition for those of you that like to make your own.
  3. And – lastly – it includes a $0.05 tax per round – not per box – per round.

Next up – H.R. 45 – This is legislation that was introduced by Bobby Rush – Congressman from Illinois – you know this guy – he’s the ex-con Black Panther that said the vacated Obama seat has to go to an African American – yes – that racist asshole.  Ironic that he would introduce anti-gun legislation considering he lived by the gun as a criminal gangsta.

The most disconcerting part of this bill is that it would require you to turn over your medical records to be able to purchase a gun.  Here’s what’s in that bill – h/t to Stop The ACLU for pulling it together:

  1. Section 102 (a) (1) a current, passport-sized photograph of the applicant that provides a clear, accurate likeness of the applicant;
  2. Section 102 (a) (8) an authorization by the applicant to release to the Attorney General or an authorized representative of the Attorney General any mental health records pertaining to the applicant; (that sounds rather intrusive)
  3. Section 103 (c) looks to be creating a federal firearms card, with your picture and information. This from the Party that goes ballistic over a national ID card.
  4. Section 104 makes it seem as if all renewals go through the AG of the USA. Does this mean that I have to go to a Federal office to reapply, rather then the Wake Country Sheriff’s office?

Notice how all of this goes through the Attorney General of the USA – you know – that other racist anti-gun Eric Holder.  What do you think the chances are that anyone would be able to purchase a gun while he’s the AG and has total control over the process?

And – some related stories from Texas Fred that will just make your head explode!

As drug violence escalates, Americans in Mexico warned – or as Fred puts it – AG Eric Holder uses LIES in effort to reinstate automatic weapons ban.

and

Mexico AG: 1,000 killed in drug violence so far in ’09 - the implication here is that Mexico is now blaming the U.S. for supplying guns to the Cartels.  Do you think he and Eric Holder have been talking to each other?

and – when you’re done here – go check out The Liberty Sphere Second Amendment Round-up.  A lot more examples of other bloggers out there posting up various stories related to this assault on the Second Amendment.  Make sure you have plenty of duct tape available.

From Texas Fred’s – Iraq-bound guards penalized for breaking apartment lease.

MCKINNEY – A North Texas couple is getting ready for their second deployment overseas.

They’re leaving to serve their country but instead they’ve been served with fees from their landlord.

“It’s a job, we have to do it,” said Chris Horvath.

But they’re leaving with added stress, since they’ve been in a fight with their apartment complex – McKinney’s El Lago development.

The couple, both of whom are sergeants in the Texas National Guard, are soon headed to Iraq.

Full Story Here:
Iraq-bound guards penalized for breaking apartment lease

Go check out the rest over at Fred’s place. He has names, addresses, and phone numbers of the apartment complex and owners as well as more on this story. This is an absolute disgrace that anybody in their right mind would do this to any member of our armed forces deploying to a war zone. Go to Fred’s and show your support – and post this story on your blog to get the word out.

As you may (or may not be aware) last month the idiots in congress passed a law that bans the use of all incandescent light bulbs by the year 2014. The only type of lightbulbs that we will be able to use are called Compact Flourescent Light Bulbs (CFLB’s). I really like Representative Ted Poe from Texas!

Freakin global warmongering assholes in Congress are just going to cause us more problems all in the name of a hoax. They are about to cause a serious environmental catastrophe! How the hell did they get this passed without us knowing about it? Isn’t this just one more step to leading down the path of Nannyism?

If you are a friend and support of Senator John Cornyn..this is some good news regarding his competition! I received this e-mail from TexasFred over at TexasFred.net

I received this from Vincent Harris @ Texans for Senator John Cornyn and he asked me to re-post it on my blog, if you’re a Texas blogger and support Sen. John Cornyn, I am asking you to do the same! I know that not ALL of you are TEXAS Bloggers, no one is perfect, but if you have friends or family in Texas, if you know a TEXAS Blogger, please forward this to them, supporting Sen. Cornyn is a very important matter for us, and ALL help is greatly appreciated…

Bloggers-

If y’all could help us hammer this message home today…it’d be awesome.

Rick Noriega has had it tough over the past couple weeks…

First, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) ranked Senator Cornyn’s re-election campaign as a fourth tier race in the eyes of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

San Antonio Express-News, Democrats hope for gains in Congress, even in Texas

MSNBC First Read, Dems look down ballot

Then, there was this poll which had him 20 points down to Senator Cornyn in his own back yard.

And today, he reported unbelievably disappointing fundraising numbers. The attached backgrounder gives some context to this…please consider it not for attribution.

Suffice to say, Noriega has failed to capitalize on the early momentum his campaign was handed by Mikal Watts’ departure and the undying devotion of left wing bloggers.

RICK NORIEGA: FUNDRAISING FACTS

Today, Rick Noriega’s Campaign Announced Raising $478,547.90 In The First Quarter Of 2008 And Has Less Than $330,000 Cash On Hand

Rick Noriega Believes He Needs to Raise $5 Million to Compete:

· “Noriega, who said he doesn’t know how much is left from the $1 million he raised for the primary, said he would need to raise at least $5 million to compete this fall.” (Elliot, “Noriega relieved to avoid runoff with perennial candidate Kelly,” San Antonio Express News, 3/5/08)

Since making that statement, Rick Noriega raised $367,209.39. In order to reach the fundraising goals he personally established, he will have to raise:

- $4,632,791 between now and election day.

- $661,827 a month…That is significantly more money than he has raised even in his best quarter thus far, approximately $580,000 in 3rd quarter 2007. (Includes $50,000 loan from Noriega)

Noriega and his aides have said that his viability as a candidate will be based on his ability to raise the resources needed to compete:

· Noriega: “Whether we like it or not, people will gauge the strength of our campaign based on how much money we can raise,” Noriega said in the fundraising solicitation. (Suzanne Gamboa, “Watts loans $3.7 million more to campaign,” Associated Press, September 13, 2007)

· Campaign Manager Sue Schechter: “[W]e need to have a strong fundraising quarter to show the pundits we’ll have the resources to go toe-to-toe with John Cornyn…” (Noriega campaign email, 9/27/07)

In the third quarter 2007 Noriega compared his fundraising to the fundraising of successful Democrats in 2006 at the same point of the campaign:

· “Noriega’s fundraising totals put Texas on the map nationally, besting the benchmarks set by 4 out of 5 of the winning Democratic challengers in 2006 Senate races. As the attached chart shows, Noriega’s totals put him ahead of the 2006-October 15th filings of John Tester (D-MT), Bob Casey (D-PA), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), and Jim Webb (D-VA), whose victories last cycle helped secure Democratic control of the US Senate. Noriega’s totals are ahead of all winners except Claire McCaskill (D-MO) who was waging her third statewide race and received much of her support from national donors.” (Noriega campaign press release, 10/1/08)

Using the same comparison now:

· Bob Casey (PA): $4.5 million cash on hand

· Sherrod Brown (OH): $2.7 million cash on hand

· Claire McCaskill (MO): $2 million cash on hand

· Rick Noriega (TX nominee): $330,000 cash on hand (4/15/08, Dallas Morning News)

· Jon Tester (MT): $261,000 cash on hand*

· Jim Webb (VA): $202,900 cash on hand**

*Texas has 23 million residents and costs $1.7 million for a week of television. Montana has 944,000 people and costs $275,000 for a week of television. Additionally, Tester was in the middle of a competitive primary that did not conclude until June of 2006.

**Jim Webb did not declare his candidacy until February of 2006.
