Obama & Dems USE Tragedy, Grief & Guns to Distract
In a recent New York Times article about the Debt Ceiling, Americans were told that the United States already hit the ceiling near the end of 2012, and that Timothy Geithner will have some "creative accounting to accomplish in order to buy some time to raise the limit, yet again.
President Barack Obama already said "there should be no negotiation on raising of the debt limit" and in fact, said "we don't have a spending problem in the government."
Over one trillion dollars in deficits a year is not overspending to Barack Obama.
So, how would Democrats continue to dodge their spending problem while ensuring the people's direct Representatives in Congress will not have time to pressure negotiations, like so many times before?
The President needs a distraction. And the gun control issue is a great one right now. Let's see how ABC's Jake Tapper reacts to this push and the President. Video courtesy Business Insider.
Barack Obama felt this issue was so important he put his Vice President in charge of the administrations position on the gun issue. Biden let everybody talk and then he spoke. With his usual aplomb he said in reference to gun control that there was no silver bullet. What good can come from this man looking at an issue as important as the complete dismantling of the Second Amendment.
There are so many other issues that we could work on in a meaningful fashion without violating the constitution. Things like the House and Senate actually passing a budget, cutting spending at a federal level to bring expenditures into line with revenue.
The Times is right when they say congress is constitutionally bound to pay the bills. But they are also allowed by the constitution to vote for spending cuts and how the money from the American people is spent. But what are we discussing? Whether or not to ban a weapon that can be attributed to less than 500 deaths every year. That would be rifles folks becasue the FBI does not differentiate between a rifle and an assault weapon.
Here is the data from the FBI
The first and most striking thing about this chart is that every year, the death-rate by all weapons are on a steady decline.
This is not reported anywhere when discussing the ban on any one weapon of the strict control of weapons by the government.
- Consider the sleepy town of Kennessaw, Georgia. A few years back the town passed a bill requiring all residents own a gun. As result, this town had no murders in the year 2000 and again, had none in 2010. Zero. None!
- Chicago on the other hand has some of the most restrictive gun laws and the rate of murder by gun is very high.
What you the Amercian people need to remember is a few simple words.
Barack Obama will violate this if he issues any executive order on guns. But how about Congress. Here is their oath.I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
Two quick points, both oaths swear to protect the the Constitution and oddly the congressional one still says so help me God. So God help them, for they have all failed at keeping solemn this simple oath.I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
