Control

controlThis is a very good book by Glenn Beck that will be devoured by his fan base and heartily ignored by most everybody else as he exposes the truth about gun control.  In Control, Beck and his coauthors use the most common arguments of the gun control crowd and not only questions the “data” that they love to quote, but shows that their data is wrong.  He also uses many of their direct quotes as an introduction to the sections.  Glenn Beck’s purpose was to give us the ammunition (I couldn’t resist that one) to respond to the lies often used by the Michael Bloomberg’s of our world.

How Many Americans Had This Same Thought?

double-standardExample 1: Nanny MO (Michelle Obama) has been a champion for obesity, okay anti-obesity. She recently came out with some ideas on how to better run supermarkets. She has a special knowledge since she probably hasn’t routinely purchased food for her family for at least five years and probably longer. Certainly her background as a lawyer has prepared her for this campaign and it is a worthy one…up to a point. Education is important, but when she steps into the “government control” mode my hackles rise;

De Bait Goes On

goffordsYou decide on whether the news is slanted against the Second Amendment. This article was front page of Pittsburgh’s “conservative” newspaper. Though it is an Adulterated Press (AP) story it ran in our paper without any attempt to get the facts straight. The use of the contrasting photographs should be enough to let you know which side the AP is on.  It would be very easy to take this bait.  I’d be willing to wager that AP offices have armed guards though they’re probably not armed with assault rifles. BTW Ms. Giffords was not shot with an assault rifle and there is a growing belief that assault rifles were not used in the Newtown school shooting as confirmed by NBC News on January 15, 2013.

Liberal Alters – Main-Stream Media

November 2008 was the liberal, main-stream media’s crowning glory as they were complicit in hoisting an unknown, untested, inexperienced person upon the American people.  The information about Obama’s past was out there, but was not covered in the lame-stream media who were too busy and too left-leaning to offer a balanced view of Senator Obama.  Ultimately it is the fault of the American voters who cast their ballots for Obama/Biden and relied on the media’s fairy tale about the first black president.  Not only was the press fawning over Obama, but they threw former favorite Hillary under the bus to support Barack and pushed very hard for Republican “maverick” John McCain to be the GOP nominee.  McCain was the candidate long before I even had the chance to cast my primary vote.
