Democrats: "World To End Tomorrow"

Well folks, it's been a lot of fun to write SACSTW over the couple years.  We have documented and satirized the inanity we all swim through every day, but it looks like the end is nigh.  At least according to the Democrats.

Those who were of school-age during the Cold War, remember all those "hide under your desk from ballistic missile attack" drills?  What a waste of time, the world isn't going to end in some sort of nuclear conflagration after all.

Remember all the hubbub about the end of the Mayan Calendar and the complete destruction of society that was supposed to happen on Dec. 21, 2012???   Pshaw!  The Mayans had nothing on the GOP!  At least according to the Democrats.

Yes folks, tomorrow, March 1 2013, the end of the world as we know it (TEOTWAWKI) will be upon us. The instrument of our destruction?    A 1.2% federal spending cut.  Wait, it gets worse....It's not really a cut in spending.  It is a cut in the spending increases scheduled for this year.

Look at it this way.  Let's say you make $1000 a week at your job.  This year, your pay was supposed to increase to $1100 a week.  The boss comes to you and says..."Sorry Joe Worker, we are only going to be able to increase your pay to $1086 a week this year".  AAGGGHHH!!! you say.  It's TEOTWAWKI!!!!

I would say to you "Joe, instead of howling about TEOTWAWKI, you should be on your knees thanking the boss that you still have a job, let alone one that is going to pay you more this year than last".  Particularly in light of SACSTW favorite Maxine Waters's comments about the effects of sequestration on the US labor force......

Please note Mad Maxine's claim that sequestration will cost the United States "170 million" jobs.  I really hate to bother the lovely and erudite Rep. Waters, but at any one time the US labor force numbers about 155 million.  So.......every single one of you still working out there will lose their jobs because of sequestration. In addition, 15 million of you are going to have to then go and get another job and lose it in order to satisfy Mad Maxine's predictions.  Sorry Max, math is a real bitch sometimes.  

Then there is Rep. Donna "I'll see your 170 million lost jobs and raise you millions of brutalized women" Edwards, D-MD.  In the video here, you can hear her explain how 230,000 calls to domestic violence shelters will go unanswered due to the GOP and sequestration.  Note how at the end, she ups the ante to "millions of women and children", nicely done Donna!

Obviously, domestic violence is a terrible thing.  I don't know about 230,000 calls in the middle of the night going unanswered in the future.  I do know of one in the recent past that went unanswered......the one Ambassador Chris Stevens made to Barack Obama's administration pleading for help as Islamic terrorists savaged him and 3 other brave Americans in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012.  What I don't remember seeing is outrage from Donna and Maxine about that unanswered call.

Racism In A Colorado Elementary School

Aurora, CO is once again in the news.  Parents of students at Mission Viejo Elementary School in Aurora were shocked to discover that the school was instituting an after-school tutoring program for white students only.  A letter sent to parents from school principal Andre Pearson described the program and confirmed that it was for white students only.

Outrage has spread across the country, and Aurora has been descended upon by all the usual suspects.....Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Maxine Waters, etc.  MSNBC and CNN have prominently featured this story, loudly decrying Pearson as "just another cracker principal trying to keep the black kids down".

When asked about the situation, President Obama responded "Obviously, the school principal acted stupidly.  I have asked the Department of Justice to immediately stop giving guns to Mexican drug traffickers and begin a full scale investigation of Mr. Pearson and his blatantly racist policies.  In this day and age we have no tolerance for segregation in our public schools."

I know what you are thinking right about now......"Geez Crew, if this is such a big story, why haven't I heard about?".    The answer is because it isn't true, at least not the part that the liberal race-baiters care about.

Mission Viejo Principal Andre Pearson (a black man) has in fact started a racist after-school tutoring program.  The reason you haven't heard about it is that the program is for "Students of Color" only.  White folks need not apply.

The story has been largely ignored by the mainstream media, as it doesn't fit conveniently into their twisted view of equality.   Discrimination against whites is okeydokey with the Sharptons and Jacksons of the world. The next time you see one of these ignorant scumbags in front of a camera, bloviating about some illusory racism, remember Aurora.  Remember a real racist like Andre Pearson.

The only news coverage I could find of the story is from the CBC station in Denver.  Their report is below...

Will You Fight To Save Our Constitution?

Note to our SACSTW readers-  The following is an excellent article by Dean Garrison.  Originally published on Jan.3 on Mr. Garrison's blog The DC Clothesline, it is a brilliant explanation of our responsibility to defend ourselves and the Constitution. Mr. Garrison has been kind enough to allow us to repost his work here.  Please visit the DC Clothesline to find the original article.
If They Come For Your Guns, Do You Have A Responsibility To Fight?
by Dean Garrison 
I feel a tremendous responsibility to write this article though I am a little apprehensive. Thinking about the possibility of rising up against our own government is a frightening thing for many of us. I am not Johnny Rambo and I will be the first to admit that I do not want to die. The reason I feel compelled to write this, however, is simply because I don’t think the average American is equipped with the facts. I feel that a lot of American citizens feel like they have no choice but to surrender their guns if the government comes for them. I blame traditional media sources for this mass brainwash and I carry the responsibility of all small independent bloggers to tell the truth. So my focus today is to lay out your constitutional rights as an American, and let you decide what to do with those rights.
About a month ago I let the “democracy” word slip in a discussion with a fellow blogger. I know better. Americans have been conditioned to use this term. It’s not an accurate term and it never has been a correct term to describe our form of government. The truth is that the United States of America is a constitutional republic. This is similar to a democracy because our representatives are selected by democratic elections, but ultimately our representatives are required to work within the framework of our constitution. In other words, even if 90% of Americans want something that goes against our founding principles, they have no right to call for a violation of constitutional rights.
If you are religious you might choose to think of it this way… Say that members of your congregation decide that mass fornication is a good thing. Do they have the right to change the teachings of your God? The truth is the truth. It doesn’t matter how many people try to stray from it. Did I just compare our founders to God? In a way I did, but please note that I am not trying to insult anyone. For the purpose of the American Government our constitution and founders who wrote it are much like God is to believers. It is the law. It is indisputable.
Our founders did not want a “democracy” for they feared a true democracy was just as dangerous as a monarchy. The founders were highly educated people who were experienced in defending themselves against tyranny. They understood that the constitution could protect the people by limiting the power of anyone to work outside of it much better than a pure system of popularity. A system of checks and balances was set up to help limit corruption of government and also the potential for an “immoral majority” developing within the American People. We have forgotten in this country that we are ultimately ruled by a constitution.
Why is a democracy potentially just as dangerous as a monarchy? Let’s look at something that Benjamin Franklin said because it answers that question more fully and succinctly than I can.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote. -Benjamin Franklin
Even 230+ years ago our founders were perceptive enough to realize that democracy was a dangerous form of government. How so? Because the citizens of a country can become just as corrupt as any government. We have seen evidence of this throughout history. Ask Native Americans and African-Americans if this population can become corrupt.
I think in 2012 we are seeing evidence of what Franklin was trying to tell us. Just because a majority of people may support certain ideas it does not mean that those ideas are just. In simple terms, just because most Americans love our president and voted for him, it does not mean that he has the power to go against our constitutional rights.
Next I’d like to review the text of the second amendment. It is very clear. This is the law of this land. So when Senator Feinstein or President Obama talk about taking your guns, you need to think about something. Are they honoring their sworn oath to uphold the constitution?
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
supremeThis is a pretty clear statement. The fact is that it took 232 years for the Supreme Court to even rule on this amendment because it has never been successfully challenged. In 2008 a case ofColumbia v. Heller the Supreme Court ruled that a handgun ban in Washington D.C. was unconstitutional. One also has to take this into consideration. The Supreme Court supports your right to own guns. If you want to research this decision further you can start here.
For those who try to debate the spirit of the 2nd amendment, they are truly no different from people who will try to take Biblical quotes out of context to try to support their immoral decisions. The founders were very clear on the intent of the 2nd amendment. Let me share a few quick quotes here:
The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. -Thomas Jefferson
Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence … From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good. -George Washington
The Constitution shall never be construed….to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms. -Samuel Adams
founderspicI could find hundreds of quotes like these.This country was built on the right to bear arms. It was built on the rights of an individual to bear arms, regardless of what his government or neighbor happened to think. This is crystal clear. Ironically the people who voice their opinions against this right have their free speech protected by your guns. Without guns in this country, all other amendments become null and void, simply because “We the People” will lose our power of enforcement.
We need to keep this in mind as our “representatives” try to push gun bans. I don’t care if 99% of people are in support of gun bans (which is far from the case), it is a violation of our constitutional rights, plain and simple.
A constitutional republic protects the rights of the individual even when their ideas are very much  in the minority. If I were the only person in America who believed in the 2nd amendment, I would still be within my rights to call upon it. You would all think I was insane and possibly celebrate if I was gunned down, but in the end I would be the only true American among us.
Our framers were very clear on this. If my government comes to take my guns, they are violating one of my constitutional rights that is covered by the 2nd amendment.
soulonfireIt is not my right, at that point, but my responsibility to respond in the name of liberty.What I am telling you is something that many are trying to soft sell, and many others have tried to avoid putting into print, but I am going to say it. The time for speaking in code is over.
If they come for our guns then it is our constitutional right to put them six feet under. You have the right to kill any representative of this government who tries to tread on your liberty. I am thinking about self-defense and not talking about inciting a revolution. Re-read Jefferson’s quote. He talks about a “last resort.” I am not trying to start a Revolt, I am talking about self-defense. If the day for Revolution comes, when no peaceful options exist, we may have to talk about that as well. None of us wants to think about that, but please understand that a majority can not take away your rights as an American citizen. Only you can choose to give up your rights.
Congress could pass gun ban legislation by a 90%+ margin and it just would not matter. I think some people are very unclear on this. This is the reason we have a Supreme Court, and though I do not doubt that the Supreme Court can also become corrupt, in 2008 they got it right. They supported the constitution. It does not matter what the majority supports because America is not a democracy. A constitutional republic protects the rights of every single citizen, no matter what their “elected servants” say. A majority in America only matters when the constitution is not in play.
I just wrote what every believer in the constitution wants to say, and what every constitutional blogger needs to write. The truth of the matter is that this type of speech is viewed as dangerous and radical or subversive, and it could gain me a world of trouble that I do not want. It is also the truth. To make myself clear I will tell you again. If they come for your guns it is your right to use those guns against them and to kill them. You are protected by our constitution.
Most of the articles I am reading on the subject are trying to give you clues without just coming out and saying it. I understand that because certain things in this country will get you on a list that you don’t want to be on. I may well be on that list. This blog is small and growing so I may not be there yet, but I have dreams. I also have my own list of subversives and anyone who attempts to deny my constitutional rights is on that list.
I am not the “subversive” here, it is the political representatives who are threatening to take away my inalienable rights. If they come to take my guns and I leave a few of them wounded or dead, and I somehow survive, I have zero doubt that I will spend a long time in prison and may face an execution. But I would much rather be a political prisoner than a slave.
If I go down fighting then I was not fighting to harm these human beings. I was simply defending my liberty and yours. It is self-defense and it is what our country was built on. We won our freedom in self-defense. We would not be ruled by a tyrannical government in the 1770′s and we will not be ruled in 2012 by a tyrannical government. There is no difference.
This is a case of right and wrong. As of now the 2nd amendment stands. It has never been repealed. If Feinstein or Barack have a problem with the constitution then they should be removed from office. They are not defending the constitution which they have sworn an oath to protect. It is treasonous to say the least. They would likely say the same about me, but I have the constitution, the founders, and the supreme court on my side. They only have their inflated egos.
I am not writing this to incite people. I am writing this in hopes that somehow I can make a tiny difference. I have no idea how many of my neighbors have the will to defend their constitutional rights. 2%? 20%? I am afraid that 20% is a high number, unfortunately.When push comes to shove many people may give up and submit to being ruled. I believe that our government is banking on this.
What I do know is that this country was founded by people who had balls the size of Texas and Patriotic Americans take shit off of no one, especially our own government. For evidence of that, you might research the Revolutionary War. My question is how many Patriots are left?
I would hope that our officials come to realize that, regardless of our numbers, we still exist because they are calling Patriotic Americans to action. They are making us decide if we want to die free or submit to their rule. I can not tell you where you should stand on that. I do know that it may make the difference between living a life of freedom or slavery.
thinkingYou must start thinking about this because I believe that the day is coming soon and I personally believe it has already been planned. Not all conspiracy theories are hogwash. They may throw down the gauntlet soon and my suggestion is that you prepare yourself to react.
I mean no disrespect to our elected officials but they need to understand that “We the People” will not be disarmed. If they proceed then it is they that are provoking us and we will act accordingly. We are within our rights to do so.
For those who are in support of taking the guns, you need to ask yourself a very important question, and I am not just talking about the politicians, because if you support them, you have chosen your side.
Are you willing to die to take my guns?

Monday Musings With The Crew

  • Breaking News:  The Vatican announced that Pope Benedict XVI would resign the papacy effective Feb. 28, becoming the first Pope to do so since Gregory XII in 1415.  Benedict's successor will be elected by a conclave of cardinals, which interestingly enough is exactly how I got this job.  
  • Here's a question.....if the proper term is "African-American", why is February "Black" History month?
Give Mommy a little smoochie!
  • Kimberly Margeson raised a few eyebrows at a New York prison by laying an open-mouth kiss on her incarcerated son's mouth during a recent visit.  Was she just a little more lusty than current societal norms permit?  Not exactly.  She was actually passing sonny boy a few oxycodone pills via the lip-lock.  It's weird....she doesn't look anything like Alicia Silverstone!

  • It's official....I'm an old geezer.  I listened to the radio news guy list the big winners at last night's Grammy Awards, and I didn't recognize a single act.  
  • Nancy Pelosi made another remarkably incoherent appearance on Fox News Sunday this weekend.  A couple of the highlights...
    • She blamed the current sluggish economy on the previous administration.  I'm pretty sure she meant the one before that.
    • When host Chris Wallace asked Pelosi about gun control, the sage of San Francisco said this...  "We avow the First Amendment, we stand with that and say that people have the right to have a gun and defend themselves".  I feel much better knowing that great Constitutional scholars like Pelosi are entrusted with protecting my rights.  
  • In direct contrast with the idiot Pelosi is SecDef Leon Panetta.  Although he is on the opposite side of the political aisle from me, I've always found Panetta to be an earnest and thoughtful man.  His recent testimony in front of the Senate about the attack in Benghazi was remarkable.  Here is a clip of him answering Sen. Ayotte's (R-NH) questions about Dear Leader's involvement that night.  Take a look....

You can hear in his voice and see in his face the pain and disgust that Obama's dereliction of duty gives him.  Obama showed absolutely no interest in the fact that our consulate was under attack, and our Ambassador and 3 other brave Americans had been murdered.  Five years ago, I would have said that it wasn't possible for the President of the United States to be so callous and disconnected.  Today, in SecondTermica, it barely makes a ripple.  We take a lot of jabs at Dear Leader here at SACSTW, but that 2 minutes of video is all you need to know what a loathsome, traitorous human being currently inhabits our White House.

Hollywood HOs Showdown- Rock vs Bennett!

This week's Hollywood Hall of Shame competition was held on Tuesday in Washington DC.  All the competitors gathered at an anti-gun press conference where they took turns competing for our hallowed award.  Amanda Peet, despite rocking the naughty librarian look, was eliminated in the early rounds.  When the dust had settled, Chris Rock and Tony Bennett were left standing as this week's Hollywood HOs finalists.

First up was Chris Rock:

"I am just here to support the President of the United States.  The President of the United States know....our boss.  He's also, you know, the President and the First Lady are kinda like the mom and the dad of the country.  And when your dad says something, you listen.  Then when you don't, it usually bites you in the ass later on.  You know, I'm here to support the President.  Thank you." 

Why thank you Mr. Rock, for your thoughtful input on Constitutional rights and the problem of violent crime in America.  Forgive me if I don't play along with you "Dear Leader Daddy" fantasies, but I do appreciate your great respect for the office of the President, and for all the men who have occupied it.  You know, like George Bush........(adult language ahead)

Not to be outdone, Tony Bennett tottered up to the microphone to talk about gun violence......

"It's the kind of turn that happened to the great country of Germany, when the Nazis came over and created tragic things.  And they had to be told off....and if we continue this kind of violence accepted in our country, the rest of the world is going to really take care of us, in a very bad way."

Gee Tony, I don't even really know where to start.  I'm not quite sure where exactly the Nazis "came over" to Germany from.  I suppose Hitler was actually Austrian, but most of his demented acolytes were home-grown.  You are right that the Nazis "created tragic things".  One of the first was a disarmed citizenry.  Yep, ole Adolf and the boys were firm believers in gun control.  Der Fuhrer might have been the ultimate whack-job, but he knew that tyranny can only be complete when guns are taken away from the citizens.  

I love the part in Saving Private Ryan when the Allied forces stormed Omaha know, they all ran right up to the Germans and told them off but good!  This might come as a shock to you Tony, but the Nazis were actually defeated by....wait for it......good guys with guns!!    

When the votes were counted, Tony Bennett had won this week's Hollywood HOs award.  His achievements in revisionist history and nation-threatening were just too good to overlook.  Better luck next time Chris!

Ray, It's Time For You To Go

I woke up this morning with a on my face.  It's not just Super Bowl Sunday, it's the last day of Ray Lewis's NFL career.  I've been watching NFL football for a long time, and never have I despised a player like I do Ray Lewis.

Self-aggrandizement is particularly loathsome to me, and Ray is the master of the craft.  Never again will I have to watch his formulaic, ridiculous, So You Think You Can Dance entrance into the stadium.  Never again will we be subjected to Ray prostrating himself on the field in prayer as soon as enough cameras are pointed in his direction.

Ray Lewis was a great linebacker.  He won't be the best linebacker on the field today, heck he won't be the best linebacker wearing #52 on the field today.  My favorite football memory of Ray came in a game against the Chiefs a few years back.  Chiefs All-World lineman Will Shields was absolutely abusing Ray, and he didn't like it.  Cameras showed him on the sidelines, whining to Brian Billick how the Chiefs were double teaming him on every play.  The video footage showed was just a case of one man (Shields) completely dominating another man (Lewis).  By the way, how Will Shields was not elected to the Hall of Fame yesterday is a complete mystery, but I digress.

For late-comers to Ray's World, let me take you back 13 years.  In January 2000, Ray and a couple of his running buddies were involved in a fight outside an Atlanta nightclub.  Two men were stabbed to death in the brawl, and Ray and his homies were indicted on murder and aggravated assault charges.  Ray would ultimately plead guilty to misdemeanor charges of obstruction in exchange for testifying against his companions.  Might I suggest that if your Wikipedia bio page contains the heading "Murder Trial", you are probably not such a great person.

Did I mention he has 6 children with 4 women?  But I digress.

So farewell's hoping you take the butt-kicking of a lifetime tonight.

PS- There is some more good Ray Lewis stuff (and some adult language) here at deadspin.
