Your love life or your guns!


A few months ago I purchased a new shot gun. A rather plain 20 gauge pump. Now I haven't purchased a new weapon in years and years and I was astonished at the paperwork, including finger prints, address, etc.

For a shotgun??

But that is nothing when compared to Canada because when the registration must be renewed, we find that they want to know about your love life.

Before renewing his gun permit in 2007, the authorities decided to inquire into Lemieux's bedroom history. Did he divorce anyone in the last two years? Did he break up with a girlfriend? If yes, use a separate sheet to explain.

Pardon me? Explain?

Well, it was nothing personal . Apparently, Canada's government feels it ought to know the romantic status of all firearm owners.

The Government of Canada has modified the old Mae West line: If you want a pistol in your pocket, you'd better be pleased to see her. Like any self-respecting citizen (if you'll forgive the expression), M Lemieux told the government to take a hike, and for good measure explained his reasons to the Prime Minister:

Now before you think that the person involved was some sort of nut, be advised:

Pierre Lemieux is an economist whose most recent book, Comprendre l'economie, just won the prestigious Prix Turgot in Paris. When it comes to guns, he's a hobbyist, not a lobbyist, but in his spare time he has been trying to make the authorities comprehend something about the relationship between public safety and his love life. Not because he thinks there's a nexus, but because the government does.

Didn't someone say the state had no business in the nation's bedrooms? Who would say something so fuddy-duddy? Oh, the same fellow who actually said fuddy-duddy: Pierre Elliott Trudeau. Well, that was before the Flood.

Watching Canada and Europe for trends coming our way is a hobby of mine. And the more Obamafied we become the closer I watch.

Why? For the same reason I watch the poison ivy patch in the neighbors untended fence row that adjoins me. If you don't nip the damn stuff as soon as it comes across it will spread.

(The above expanded from my post in The Tennessean.)




Tell us who, Janet Napolitano... Obama should fire you


WASHINGTON (AP) — Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano says she regrets that some people took offense over a report warning that right-wing extremist groups were trying to recruit disgruntled troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

But she says "a number of groups far too numerous to mention" were targeting returning veterans to carry out domestic terrorism attacks.

She said the warning report that went out American law enforcement agencies was consistent with reports that were issued before.

Napolitano spoke on CNN's "State of the Union."

Let us be blunt. I don't believe you, Janet. And neither do millions of other Americans.

Let's face facts. You have insulted veterans, tried to invent new words for terrorism and the War on Terror and now you come up with this lame excuse for what can best be described as despicable comments.

Obama should fire you. But he won't.

So you can hang around until his policies bring on the next deadly attack on Americans. You can then resign in disgrace.

My advice is take Door No. 1.




Dividing money vs multiplying...

Got this from Mack E.


"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
~ Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931-2005 ~

Somehow I doubt that the White House reads this blog.... but maybe someone will tell Obamie about the nation wide tax protests. I am sure that chumming around with South American dictators is a lot more fun than watching Nancy and Harry run the country, but he really needs to know!
