"Gun control?" Actually "rights control." And we let it happen.

I have the right to own a gun.  I, along with millions of others, prepaid that right by serving our country.

That right, however, is running headlong into a political realm that's rapidly spinning out of control.

Formerly respected generals band together with anti-gun nuts.  Why would military figures be so intent on disarming us?

Nothing to suspect there, eh?

The politics of deflection rear their ugly head: another muslim killer slaughters Americans and, instead of talking about the root cause for the slaughter (muslim religion) we're deluged with the idea that somehow, it's the gun's fault and those of us who are wise enough to exercise our 2nd Amendment rights are the ones who are to suffer.

We are deluged with the increasingly false idea that we should not judge the entirety of the islamic cult by the actions of those who seek out ways to kill us.

And we are also somehow held responsible for the actions of those very cult members who are spilling our blood.
I remain troubled that those who've led many of our armed forces have come together with anti-gun hypocrites like Gabby Gifford's husband, Mark Kelly, to do their best to convince us that we have no right to own or operate so-called "assault rifles."

As a soldier and an officer, I remain acutely aware of the Constitutional rights I was sworn to uphold.

Words, of course, have meaning.  The phrase "shall not be infringed" is a phrase made up of words which, you guessed it, have meaning. I, along with every other soldier, including the ones involved in this general's coffee klatch, swore to uphold every word in that document.

And yet, they turn their backs on that very language.


We are currently governed by people  at every level who find their agendas to be superior to that of those they ostensibly answer to.


It appears to be part of a pattern I detected a few years back.  It's at all levels of government.

Even local.

Having read the writing on the wall: Stuart bails.

Look: Steve Stuart had no chance of re-election, and he knew it.

No matter what reason(s) he give(s), that's the bottom line.

Stuart cannot win; no democrat can.  The people of Clark County hate the CRC Scam generally and loot rail particularly.  It is impossible for Stuart to separate himself from the pet project he has ignored the people over for so many years: he knew that he was likely to get blasted right between his political eyes if he ran again.

It is equally impossible for any other democrat to run in this county and NOT have the CRC Scam draped around their neck.

Thus, it's better for him to move on than it is to be thrown out.

But make no mistake about it: the excuses he gives will be anything BUT the truth.  He may whine about "ideology" but the "ideology" out of touch here is HIS.  He knows he would lose.  The result?

Walk away on your own terms.
When he babbled this:
"And I've said it before: I don't speak for the people.. I will NEVER speak for "the people," I speak for Steve and some of you are going to agree with me and some of you aren't."
I thought: What a bizarre philosophy of governance.  That he'd actually say this on video must mean that he's not running again, or else he's got a political death wish.

You people... what you need... what you want... none of that means a damned thing to me, Slimeball told us.

It became fairly clear that he was done. This video alone would have found him slaughtered at the polls countywide, because there is no excuse for this kind of rank arrogance.

Well, I appreciate his honesty in the matter.
So MANY politicians are in this school of thought.  

Locally, Sen. Ann "Gas Tax" Rivers, who blatantly lied to get elected and betrayed her district by hanging a $700 million bill around the necks of the people of this county on the gas tax she had pledged to oppose.

The 3 Stooges, who lied to get elected (And who'll lie to stay elected.)

The two RINO goons running against incumbent conservatives.

None of the 5 want to be held accountable to the voters who send them there.  None have a vision.  None have made any promises or plans.  None of shown us a damned thing... because, like Rivers, they don't want to be held accountable.

And that means they are free to vote exactly the way the special interests tell them to vote.

They will, no doubt be successful.  Because the one thing they all have in common is that the last thing any of these scum care about is what those of us they allegedly answer to actually want.

That's why Rivers lied to get elected.  That's why County Clerk Scott Weber lied to get elected.  That's why Tim Leavitt lied to get elected.  That's why Julie Olson lied to get elected.  That's why Marc Boldt lied to get elected.  That's why the US Senate lied to get elected.  That's why they ALL lie to get elected.

To control us.  To manipulate us.  To run our lives without accountability on their part.

And we will reelect them... and elect these RINOs... all.  Because they don't have to answer to anyone... and we, as a people... don't care.
