I haven’t been posting here lately, mostly because I’ve been dealing with this, and this. So now that I am finally starting to get back in the swing of things, well, lets just say, I want to just close my eyes and ignore it all. Is it just me? Or does it feel like we are getting hit from all sides so hard and so fast, it’s almost impossible to keep up with everything that’s going down right now?
There’s the assault on the second amendment. Look up the “Blair Holt Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009″. It’s a bill designed to force everyone to register their weapons with the Fed. That way the Fed will know who has what when they come knocking.
The Un-Fairness Doctrine. Don’t be fooled. They are pushing this one under the guise of “locality”. Read this. Definitive.
The total lack of respect for the American Military & Military Families, in the the form of allowing photographers to publish photos of the caskets of dead military. (source, one of many)
CPSIA. I recently got word that local charities are just throwing out huge amounts of merchandise (books, clothing, & toys meant for th 12 & under set) rather then risk being in violation of this one. Sad. (source, CPSC website)
The mortgage bailout. Wait. Didn’t we do that once already? Join a #teaparty if you can find one and fight this thing.
The porkulus bill. Did you realize that Nationalized Health Care was hidden in there?
Nationalized Health Care.
President Barack Obama proposed spending $634 billion to expand U.S. health care, financing the “down payment” with increased taxes on wealthy Americans and less government money for some drugmakers and health insurers. (source)
Did you see the Tax Increases in that last item? Don’t think it won’t affect you in our trickle-down economy.
And don’t forget about the States, which are all starting to get really pissed at the Obama Administration’s overstepping boundaries with their Urban Affairs Cabinet guy (source) and so much more. A few governors are refusing to take federal money from the prokulus. Several states are even reasserting there State Sovereignty powers. There have been whispers of secession if the Feds don’t back off. (source)
The truly frustrating thing is feeling extremely useless. They have the power. All of this stuff will happen. And as long as the Democrats in congress continue to ignore thier constituents… Well… All we have left is prayer.
