I came across an article today calling for a “firing squad” for the NRA and those who support them. The author cited perceived armed insurrection as treason, and declared that M1 Abrams and F-22 Raptors needed to rain down on these terrorists. The great irony is that someone who is adamant about gun control to protect people, or so they claim, calls for the death of all those who oppose their ideas. This is the new tone of American politics. The very ones who say that those who support the 2nd Amendment want to overthrow the government, are the ones who want the government to stoop down to tyranny at its worst and start killing civilians. The second irony is that people like this, and arguments like this are the very reason the 2nd Amendment is so necessary and sacred. To top it all off, the individual who wrote this is a journalism professor. This is an educator of the next generation. It is scary what America is becoming now, and if the current trends continue, what it will soon become. To all the patriots out there, stand strong against tyranny. Regardless of what the President says, it is lurking aorund every corner.

This blog is based an article I read from the Whitehouse blog, but it actually goes much deeper than just this one event. I will go ahead and warn the reader that I will sound hearltess in this analysis, and that I do not intend to do. I will seem unfair, but that is simply because life is not fair, more government cannot make it so. The article is here: http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2013/05/10/president-obama-explains-how-health-reform-helping-women. It is actually a blog from the Whitehouse, and it talks about how much better Obamacare is already making the lives of women. Here is my problem. As you read these stories, they are the exceptions to the rule, they are rare, they are isolated events. You cannot make a sweeping healthcare law that changes the lives of everyone else to help only a select few. I have no doubt that these parents appreciate this law, and I am sure that it is helping them, but at what cost? Do I like being the voice that some would say is against these sad cases of the unfairness of the human condition? Of course not, but that does not change the crux of the argument. Just as in Newtown, where 26 children and adults were slain by an evil individual, a law cannot stop that. I have no doubt the parents want guns gone, I can’t say I wouldn’t too, but does that make it rational or right? I know what I am saying is tough and I know it is unpopular, but I also feel that it is true. I think our government is arrogant enough to think that it has the power to legislate evil and unfairness out of the world, and it is simply an impossible thing to do. No amount of laws will stop evil, nor will it stop the tragedy of having a child diagnosed with a rare disease. I ran a 5k just the other weekend that raised $32,000 for a little child with a rare degenerative disease. We must depend on the goodwill and charity of the citizens of the United States, not the organized control of the government, to treat these issues. These are isolated issues that should be handled on an individual basis. They are not universal issues that can be legislated against. Government is the problem, not the solution.

It is incredible to me that a week does not go by that our President or someone in his administration has not deceived, intentionally lied to, or duped the American people in some way. We have the most biased media in our history, to go along with calculated lying of goons like Carney, Rice, and Holder. It has produced the most opaque Presidency our country has ever seen. We have Beghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal, hints of voter fraud, etc., from the administration. However, it is really an indictment of the media. There is nor coverage of Gosnell, Benghazi, or the IRS scandal, but instead all the focus is spent on Jodi Arias and the Cleveland kidnapping. While I am sure those are interesting news cases, they do not have national repurcussions that these other stories should have. I, for one, am simply so disillusioned at this point by our political system and the media that covers it, that I just do not know what to do anymore. Each day that goes by my rights are assaulted, my values are belittled, and I am told that the things I hold to be true make me a racist or a bigot. This is simply no longer the America my parents once knew. It feels that we are no longer common citizens with differing views on economics or same-sex marrigae, but it feels as though we are sworn enemies fighting for the fate of our country. I blame this division on our President and on our media. They treat one half of the country as sub-human idiots who have no idea what they are doing with out-dated values. It is infuriating, and I think the patience of many of these Americans and patriots is almost up. I value life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This socialist rhetoric that promises people more freedom is datardly propaganda that must be stopped. Fight the lies and perpetuate the truth. Democracy and socialism are antagonists and cannot exist together. Do not fall into the lie.

I chose the title for this blog because of the comparisons out there between the Watergate scandal of the Nixon era with the Benghazi cover-up going on today. Most of you will probably remember that Watergate was a difficult time for America because we lost trust in our President. The President not only was involved in illegal activity, but also tried very hard to cover it up. It was no doubt a chain of terrible decisions that led to, as they should, his resignation. However, it is almost comical, looking back that Benghazi and Watergate are comparative. Nowadays, no one trusts the President or his administration, or even has the illusion of doing so. Also, no one died in the Watergate scandal. Four Americans not only died in Benghazi, but they were left alone and abadoned by the people they trusted and supported. It is appaling to me that 8 months later we have no solid answers, and that the Obama administration was just allowed to sweep this under the rug and blame it on a Youtube video as the election pressed forward. The most glaring difference between Watergate and Benghazi is the media, and I think that Benghazi is just as much an indictment of the media as it is of the President. In the 70s the media hunted for the truth ruthelessly and wanted to supply the truth to the American people. Now, the media simply feeds and supplies the same narrative that the government feeds to us, all the while hiding stories that may go against the agenda. It is unacceptable that these “news” organizations are allowed to get away will complete deception of the American people, and that they aid an administration in doing the same. Tomorrow answers will start to be heard, people will start to speak, and I hope that the truth will begin to come out. For the four Americans who lost their life on Sept. 11, and for their families who want to know why their loved ones had to die, I want answers. I demand answers, and so should you.

Just last week I was talking with someone about the possibility of 3-D printed magazines for my array of weapons. We discussed the idea of a 3-D printed gun, but felt like it was far off. It seems we were wrong. With the latest release of a 3-D printable gun, known as the Liberator, America is faced with a plethora of problems. A 25 year old UT grad has developed free software that he will make available to the public to use at their will. I know as Americans we love our guns, and we know we have the right to keep them, but this technology is different. It will allow anyone, anywhere, at anytime to print an unmarked, untraceable, non-detectable gun. This is a very scary thought. I understand that terrorists can make bombs in their basement, but that takes time, effort, money, and skill. This new 3-D printer would allow terrorists to print an array of guns with no way at all to catch them doing it. It would essentially make guns available to everyone in society, and I do not know if I am ok with that. I am all for gun rights, but I think this is something that we need to be concerned about. You can read the full story and see a video on the “Liberator” here: http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/3d-printable-gun-153109290.html

On Sunday, Bill Richardson, former Democratic Governor of New Mexico, stated his dislike for Senator Ted Cruz. He even went as far to say that he should not be considered Hispanic. To me this seems to be the height of racism. To define what someone’s actions, beliefs, and thoughts should or should not be based on their race is the very stereotypical racism the Left supposedly is trying to fight. Unless, of course, it messes with their agenda. All Cruz has really done is have his own thoughts and actions, separate from race, to match what his constituency wants. The does not change his race.

The hypocrisy of the talking heads who blame the deaths of innocent people by gun violence on America’s gun culture is astounding.  This weekend my Dad, my uncle, and I went to a sporting clays course.  For those of you who don’t know sporting clays, it is like shooting skeet, but with the throwers at different stations from different directions.  Imagine golf with a shotgun.  So, we had 3 shotguns, over 400 shells, and spent about 3-4 hours out on the course.  It was a great time.  Never once was anyone in danger, never once was anyone threatened, and we had a great time of comraderie and enjoyment. However, in movies, video games, music, and tv shows, none of which are condemned in gun violence, guns are not at all seen the same way.  In all these forms of media guns are used solely to kill, injure, or threaten others.  Yet, the government is only concerned with stopping me from having the weapons and ammunition to have a fun weekend with my family, but not in stopping the prevading desensitizing of our culture, along with breeding a fear and misunderstanding of guns. It is further proof that the gun control initiative is not about stopping gun violence, but it is about control over the American people.  To responsible gun owners out there, I know and you know that we prize safety above all else.  It is the utmost of our cares and in the forefront of our minds when we are using our weapons for whatever purpose.  Media sources never mention, teach, or emply proper gun safety.  We do have an improper gun culture in our society, but it is not from the American people, it is from those who wish to control us.

The discussion on abortion stems from what you believe constitutes life, or what life is.  If fetuses are human beings or not, is the crux of the entire argument.  If they are humans, then they a required to have all of the natural rights that we enjoy, most poignantly, the right to life.  If they are somehow not alive, then the moral dilemma is really no more existent than that of pulling a tooth.  I hope to argue that humans have natural rights, most importantly to life, that fetuses are indeed humans, and therefore, they have natural right, most importantly to life. 

 

Life is defined as the condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth.  To me it is clear that what some would call a “clump of cells” fits easily into this definition. I would think we can all also agree that if scientists were to find single-celled, non-complex organisms on Mars, they would certainly claim they had found life.  The “clump of cells” of an undeveloped human are far more complex than that, so it would necessarily be life. If left uninterrupted, in every pregnancy, throughout all time, that “clump of cells” has developed into a child.  Of course there are tragedies such as, miscarriages, genetic abnormalities, etc., but that does not make these pregnancies non-life, ask any women who has suffered through them.  Abortion is simply the interruption of nature and destruction of life.

Therefore, in difficult situations, say rape, incest, danger to the mother, etc., the decision is still to end a life, and that is a decision that I think no man or woman has the power, or right, to make. Life should be held most sacred, especially the lives of the most innocent and helpless around us.  We would do anything to protect babies and children.  There is nothing that pains me more in life than to see a child harmed or a baby put in danger. So, why do we allow this to happen to children just because they have not left the womb, and gone from a “fetus” or a “clump of cells” and magically become a living child.  I write this, not because it is easy or because it is popular, but because, as our President would say, if it can save the life of even one child, then it is worth it.

I just wanted to write a blog to explain to people out there why it is not only Constitutionally wrong for the government to take my rights to Speech, Religion, Protection, etc., but that is also Naturally wrong.  We as human beings are born with innate rights that are endowed by our creator. Though government may physically take our rights, and many governments have, they do not have the right to do so. The Constitution is not a rational document as seen by the Left today, it gives people freedom that they believe the government should dictate to you. However, the framers of the Constitution understood this, they knew that as government advanced liberty would naturally yield, and that these rights would come under fire.  That is why they made it clear that the Bill of Rights was not Laws that government made, but it was Rights that the government recognized as universally true and applying to all people across all lands. The Bill of Rights was part of the American Constitution, but it is a document outlining the rights of all mankind, we are just blessed enough to live in a country that once recognized that fact.  There is no need in arguing whether these rights are good, rational, helpful, harmful, bad, or irrational, the fact is that they are rights, and therefore, are untouchable.  They are not up for debate, nor for a vote. They belong to the people and empower the people. Liberty is not an American value, it is human value, so the battle we fight is not just for America, but for all mankind.  We must not let the government take away rights that are not theirs to take, we must not allow them to dictate to us our Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness, and we must not allow the sense of liberty and freedom that is distinctly American. Do not argue or debate your rights, they are yours forever.  Instead, try to instill in others the love for liberty that has been lost in this country, remind them of the rights that are theirs and no one elses, and encourage them to fight for these rights with all their will.

I’ll admit it. I have always been a sports nut. From watching the cowboys reel off Super Bowl wins with ease to Michael Jordan soaring to his 6 NBA Championships, I’ve been hooked. Yet in the midst of all these sports one has always stood out to me: Baseball. Nothing can ever quite top the majesty of a walk-off home run, the beauty of a perfect game, or the raw power of a 98 MPH fastball in my opinion. The following post is David Macaray and was originally published at the Huffington Post. If gives 10 Reasons why Baseball is the greatest game ever evented. And I couldn’t agree more.
