Oh these tangled birth certificates we weave…

BOGOTA — The ex-husband of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s lover told a Colombian magazine Sunday that he plans to sue the former governor, alleging that the birth certificate of the couple’s love child was falsified.

Somehow, the birth certificate was falsified to claim Obama was their child, born in California and therefore, eligible to be president of the United States.

The Last Nail – Ron Paul Floor Speech May 25 2011

An excellent speech by Rep. Ron Paul.  If you click through to YouTube, the video includes the full text of the speech.

The three major reasons for our Constitutional Convention were to:

1. Guarantee free trade and travel among the states.

2. Make gold and silver legal tender and abolish paper money.

3. Strictly limit the Executive Branch’s authority to pursue war without Congressional approval.

But today:

1. Federal Reserve notes are legal tender, gold and silver are illegal.

2. The Interstate Commerce Clause is used to regulate all commerce at the expense of free trade among the states.

3. And now the final nail is placed in the coffin of Congressional responsibility for the war power, delivering this power completely to the President—a sharp and huge blow to the concept of our Republic.

Mossberg 500 One-off Drug Enforcement Administration Special Edition

I wonder if it comes with a built-in Wrong Address Locator!

Mossberg put together a one-off special edition of the Mossberg 500 SPX engraved with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) logo. The gun is being donated to a fundraiser to support their fallen agents

They should make some more and donate them to a fundraiser to support the families of people they kill on accident!

Your brain; it is not anchored in reality

“These are such fearsome weapons, I don’t understand why Congress lets them be sold to the general population,” Gunn says. “When you question these folks [gun-rights advocates], they don’t have a good explanation, except: ‘It’s my right to do it.’ Their right trumps the right of other citizens to live in a safe society? It’s a very selfish view.”

Moving past the irony that the spokesman for the Gun Violence Prevention Center of Utah is named “Gunn,” it is tremendously revealing that the anti-rights crowd does not consider the right of a law-abiding citizen to own private property to be of any value in a free society.

Not to mention the glaringly obvious fact that no matter how many free citizens own any type or number of firearms, it does not have a negative effect on anyone’s safety.  This can plainly be seen by any rational person who observed the passing of Clinton’s “assault weapon” ban, which increased sales of those types of firearms, and increased sales of new variants of the banned models, and then increased sales of those types of firearms again when the ban expired.  And again, with Obama’s election, sales of those firearms shot through the roof!

And how much less-safe is it now?  Why, violent crime is still down lower than ever before!  Utah is still an F-rated state to live in as far as gun control laws go, but an A-rated state as far as crime rates go!

How can the anti-rights crowd be so blind to reality?

Drug cartels caused the credit crash of 2008?

So, Wachovia was laundering money for a drug cartel, and when the bank finally came under investigation, began to reduce the amounts it would accept in drug deposits. In retaliation, the drug cartel withdrew all its money. Suddenly, Wachovia, and other large banks as well, found they had insufficient cash to operate, triggering the credit crash of 2008.

Time to end the war on drugs! That’d quickly put the cartels out of business.
