Pick a Master, Slave!

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

In the quote below I’ve removed two insignificant words to help make it more clear what you’re dealing with. And, yes, I do mean “you” as opposed to “we.” I checked out of this ridiculous game long ago.

Tell me if you can come up with any two words to fill in the blank which would make these paragraphs acceptable to anyone who actually respects the Constitution.

Among the Democratic presidential candidates, former Sen. John Edwards (N.C.) and Rep. Dennis Kucinich (Ohio) support a national ban on [REDACTED], though Edwards has expressed reservations about the constitutionality of such a law.

Democratic Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) and Barack Obama (Ill.) both said that federal action is not needed and would be ill advised, though Obama left open the possibility of federal action in the event efforts stall at the state and local level.

“I think we’re making progress at the local level,” Clinton said at a debate at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire in September. “If we can’t provide these kinds of protections at the local level, which would be my preference, I would be supportive of a national law,” Obama said.

So Edwards supports it though he believes it’s unConstitutional. Hillary Rodman and Barack Hussein both want to wait and see if they can enslave you locally. But if that doesn’t work, they’ll drop the hammer from the big house, for your own good. Fools! If only you would listen when they speak, they wouldn’t have to work so hard passing so many illegal Federal laws.

Lest you think I’m picking on Democrats, this was all prompted – and the quote taken – from a news report about Huckabee’s backtracking from his cheerleading about a federal smoking ban. Just in time for the South Carolina primary. Where Big Tobacco isn’t just Big Business. It’s a provider of lifestyles.

I happen to be an unrepentant (but considerate) smoker. That’s not relevant here at all. I only mention it as disclosure. I’m also an intravenous heroin user and have quite a predilection for the Ultimate Bacon Cheeseburgers that Jack sells from the Box, but that’s not what we’re discussing here.

I’m no fan of Rush Limbaugh, but his prescience on this must be acknowledged: He said 10 years ago that if you jump on the bandwagon to outlaw smoking, they’ll come after your food next. He was right and he was ridiculed as paranoid. In case you haven’t noticed, there is much talk in many different places these days about legislation regarding fatty foods. LEGISLATORS debating about what FOOD IS ALLOWED.

There’s also a Federal ban on light bulbs.

Signed by a “compassionate conservative.”

As soon as you abandon principle and agree to the use of force, YOU are personally in danger. When they came for the grossly obese cheeseburger fiends, I said nothing for I was not a grossly obese cheeseburger fiend. Or something like that.

Show me where in the Constitution there is anything that hints at any of this being under the purview of a President or anyone in the Feral Gubmint. When you’re done with that, explain to me why anyone would promote or vote for a known liar.

Then see if you can identify anyone running for President of the United States that isn’t proudly promising to violate the oath of office. If you do, vote for that man or admit you’re a traitor, you hate freedom and you have no respect for the America that the Founding Fathers gave us.
