Obama Going for Broke?

Current mood: pissed off

Apparently, The Barack, I mean Herr God-Emperor Barack XLIV, is going for broke towards an American version of the Fourth Reich with his “stimulus package,” among other things.

It seems that’s there more in it than Ø815,000,000,000 coming out of our pockets and going to “infrastructure” make-work programs, bailouts for state and local governments, and other goodies for the politically-connected and Ruling Classholes.

For example, there’s the health-care rationing plan and another blow to medical privacy. Hat tip to Rob Taylor of the LP of Coos County, Oregon

Then there’s former Congresscreep Emanuel Rahm’s statement that if you’re on the TSA’s no-fly list, you should be barred by law from owning guns [1].

Now that Rahm is now White House Chief of Staff, he has The Barack’s ear. I wonder if an executive order along the lines of Rahm’s statement is forthcoming . . . ?

Next there’s H.R. 45, a bill designed to outlaw any private ownership of firearms that isn’t sanctioned by the Administration.

That’s a far cry from these campaign-era statements put out by the campaign —

Barack Obama has stated unequivocally that law-abiding Americans have the right to purchase, own, transport, and use guns responsibly, including for the purpose of protecting their families. So this line of attack is particularly scurrilous, as it uses terrifying imagery and outright lies to attack Obama. [2]

Respect the Second Amendment: Millions of hunters own and use guns each year. Millions more participate in a variety of shooting sports such as sporting clays, skeet, target and trap shooting that may not necessarily involve hunting. As a former constitutional law professor, Barack Obama believes the Second Amendment creates an individual right and he greatly respects the constitutional rights of Americans to bear arms. He will protect the rights of hunters and other law-abiding Americans to purchase, own, transport and use guns for the purposes of hunting and target shooting. He also believes that the right is subject to reasonable and commonsense regulation. [3]

Funny that the second quote was featured at BarackObama.com during the campaign, but taken down afterwards [4]
