Yesterday, Secretary of State John Kerry signed the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, despite warnings from 130 members of Congress and a vote of 53-46 in the Senate earlier this year to “uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.”
Those involved in the traditional political realm of left and right deem me delusional. I am labeled a “radical” by those on the right and a “reactionary” by those on the left. In fact, I am neither. Rather, I am the dreaded Libertarian who believes that government, if it must exist at all, must be structurally limited. And it is clear that in that belief I am a part of a small minority.
Personal Liberty Digest™ offers a handy primer to prepare you for the big, bad world in which you live. Think of this exercise as if it were Obamacare and as if I were the death panel (sorry: “independent payment advisory board”). The good news is that, unlike with Obamacare, you can survive flunking this one.
President Barack Obama took to the rostrum during this past weekend’s memorial to Aaron Alexis’ victims and completely ignored Alexis — not to mention the victims — to focus on something he and his Democratic accomplices continue to refer to as “gun violence.”
Since I’ve upgraded to the new Samsung Galaxy S4, I have never understood why anyone would want an iPhone, but that is beside the point. Here is a very urgent warning about why you should not buy the iPhone 5S or even upgrade to iOS 7.
Mentally unstable man in the military gains legal access to gun, goes on rampage. That’s the portrait. “Obvious nut job. But still, he was able to buy a gun.” Bottom line: Do whatever is necessary to grab guns from private citizens. Tighten laws. Step up psychiatric interventions across the land, to prevent shootings before they occur.
Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Janet Yellen is said to be President Barack Obama’s top choice to replace Helicopter Ben Bernanke at the Federal Reserve. Progressives are said to be ecstatic, viewing Yellen as someone who will continue if not double down on Bernanke’s money printing policies. As usual, progressives are missing the point.
Witness the newest lapdog media malady: ARDS (AR-15 derangement syndrome). When it turned out that Washington Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis didn’t employ an AR-15 (a semi-automatic replica of a military weapon) in his killing spree, they did what all self-respecting liberal pseudo-journalists did; they doubled down on the wrong bet.
Gun barrels were still warm and smoking and blood was still flowing from the bullet wounds inflicted by Aaron Alexis at the Washington Navy Yard when the gun grabbers began calling once again for a ban on scary-looking guns. One problem: No scary-looking AR-15 was used in the shooting.
The Administration of Barack Obama is so dedicated to the idea of getting involved in Syria’s civil war, despite domestic and international objection to the U.S. meddling in the conflict, that it is willing not only to waive provisions of Federal law prohibiting the arming of terrorists but also to put its hypocrisy on full display.
