Angle's Divided House Aided Her Fall

Go to fullsize image
"On the morning of November 2, 2010, Sharron Angle appeared well-positioned to become the next US Senator from the state of Nevada. Numerous polls showed her holding a modest, but steady, lead over one of the most powerful men in the country. Grassroots conservatives across the country gleefully regarded her campaign as reflective of the national mood and expected it to represent a signature win of the burgeoning Tea Party movement. Politicos and journalists marveled at her staggering third quarter fundraising haul of $14 million – a figure that ballooned to a grand total of $28 million by the campaign’s conclusion. As Nevadans cast their ballots that Tuesday morning, Team Angle projected a quiet confidence"

GOA Alert

Feds Seek to Implement Unconstitutional Power Grab
The Obama administration just can’t stop blaming the Second Amendment for violence perpetrated by Mexican drug cartels.
In the latest brazen attempt to circumvent the Constitution, Obama and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) are seeking to implement rules that will subject American gun dealers to even more onerous paperwork requirements.
A new proposed rule will, for the first time, establish the precedent that licensed firearms dealers will be required (by administrative fiat) to report to the government the sale of two or more semi-automatic rifles that are .22 caliber or greater, can accept a detachable magazine, and are purchased by the same person within five business days.
In a move that bypasses the elected representatives of the people (the Congress), the new rules could be instituted by regulatory fiat as quickly as January 5, 2011.
This idea was concocted more than a year ago by New City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s group Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a group that only seems to focus on punishing legal gun owners.
Even worse, the final decision on implementing this plan will be up to the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), headed by Cass Sunstein. In 2009, GOA opposed the confirmation of Sunstein, who would like to ban hunting and allow animals to have legal representation in court.
This mandate will not only violate federal statutory law prohibiting a federal gun registry, it will also give the BATFE another excuse to harass American gun dealers, while doing nothing to address the problem of border violence.

Drug cartels are financed to the tune of the billions of dollars. They finance disposable submarines, tunnels between the two countries, and large shipments of weapons from rogue nations. Cartels have bribed Mexican officials at the highest levels to the tune of millions of dollars, and have taken effective control of entire cities in Mexico. To suggest that adding yet another layer of paperwork requirements to U.S. gun dealers will help to stem the violence is ludicrous. This is simply another attempt to ratchet down on the right to keep and bear arms.
The Second Amendment is not the cause of border, drug-related violence. And as violence increasingly occurs on our side of the border, Second Amendment rights become even more important for self-protection.
Gun Owners of America is submitting comments opposing these new rules and is urging members of Congress to slam the brakes on this proposal.
ACTION: Please urge your Representative and Senators to oppose this abuse of federal power. Click here to send a pre-written letter that includes two specific steps that members of Congress can take immediately, and it also urges them to prepare, if necessary, to push legislation to overturn this unlawful act.
It is especially important for licensed gun dealers to take these actions, so please pass this alert on to your local gun store.

Taxes And Slavery: A Parallel

"We are in danger of being overwhelmed with irredeemable paper, mere paper, representing not gold nor silver; no sir, representing nothing but broken promises, bad faith, bankrupt corporations, cheated creditors and a ruined people."
-- Daniel Webster, in an address to the U.S. Senate, 1833

"Republicans called for a decrease in the increase of slavery – much as modern Republican presidents since Ronald Reagan, never really wanted to cut taxes, but only decrease the increasing amount that is taken out of your paycheck each week. Reagan sponsored the largest tax increase in American history in a move which pleased the pro-tax bipartisan majority in Congress.

Present-day embryonic 'tea partiers' within the GOP are comparable to this 'free-soil' element within the party of yesteryear. They know something is not right about confiscatory taxes and run-away spending but have not quite worked out a comprehensive frontal attack strategy and systematic analysis of the problem.

Now if Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and all the rest of the South wanted slavery – fine. *Lincoln and the Republicans supported a constitutional amendment to permanently guarantee slavery in the South. In fact, this amendment passed the Congress, and was ratified by three states before the war began at Fort Sumter."

Proposed Firearms Ordinance Hearing

Johnston County Board of Commissioners

Proposed Johnston County Firearm Ordinance

As you are aware, the Johnston County Board of Commissioners was scheduled to hold a public hearing on January 3, 2011 at our 6:00pm meeting to review and discuss the adoption of a proposed firearm ordinance. I, as well as my fellow Board members, have received several communications over the last week from concerned citizens regarding the implementation of such an ordinance. In light of these concerns, the Board and I have decided to develop a workgroup, consisting of Commissioner, staff and citizen representatives, who will review the proposed firearm ordinance, address the citizen concerns and develop a revised ordinance that is mutually acceptable among us all.

Currently the workgroup will be comprised of the following members, with the possible addition of a couple more individuals:

Allen L. Mims, Jr. – Chairman of the Johnston County Board of Commissioners

Jeffrey P. Carver – Vice Chairman of the Johnston County Board of Commissioners

Rick J. Hester – County Manager

Steve Bizzell – Sheriff

Berry Gray – Planning Director

Citizens: Jeff Lawrence, Mike Walters, Jake McAllister, Stephen Reeves, Jonathan Parker and Todd Blackburn

Therefore, the public hearing scheduled for January 3, 2011 has been postponed until further notice. Upon receipt of a revised ordinance from the workgroup, we shall re-advertise the date and time of the public hearing.

Thank you.

"Fighting government intrusion into our lives is becoming increasingly difficult for at least two reasons. The first reason is that educators at the primary, secondary and university levels have been successful in teaching our youngsters to despise the values of our Constitution and the founders of our nation -- 'those dead, old, racist white men.' Their success in that arena might explain why educators have been unable to get our youngsters to read, write and compute on a level comparable with other developed nations; they are too busy proselytizing students. The second reason is we've become a nation of thieves, accustomed to living at the expense of one another and to accommodate that we're obliged to support tyrannical and overreaching government. Adolf Hitler had it right when he said, 'How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think.'"

Lee The Matchless Hero

"If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one, subject to particular exceptions."
--James Madison
A venerated American hero, General Lee’s abilities are legendary and even his adversaries would praise him. General Granville Dodge of the Northern military said that Lee’s “unfailing equipoise and sturdy courage prolonged the life of the Confederacy from month to month [and a] dispassionate judgment places Robert E. Lee among the greatest generals of modern times.”

Lee the Matchless American Hero:

“In discussing Pompey’s greatness on the field of battle, Cicero, a master of ordered thought, asserts that four qualities are united in supreme military chieftains. These, as he thinks, are…Military knowledge…Valor…Authority…Good fortune. No soldiers will long fight whole-heartedly for an unlucky chief. Did Lee possess these traits?

Knowledge? How otherwise, with an army necessarily diminishing, did he compel President Lincoln to try McClellan, Halleck, Pope, Burnside, Hooker, Meade, Grant in an effort to match him in the field, and this, too, when these capable officers excelled him in every material equipment of war?

Valor? It is needed only to recall how, with McClellan still lying at the doors of Richmond, Lee sent off Jackson to jar Pope’s complacency and then followed himself with the larger part of his army to complete Jackson’s task, or how, when fighting in the ratio of only two to five, he divided his army at Chancellorsville and overthrew the self-sufficient Hooker.

The last quality mentioned by Cicero, good fortune, is a relative term. Although Lee was fought to a standstill at Sharpsburg, and baffled at Gettysburg, the admiration, even veneration, of his soldiers was undiminished. They still believed that, while circumstances might prove too much for him, no skill of an antagonist would ever surpass his battlefield strategy.

Such was the chieftain the North Carolina troops, in common with the soldiers of the South, were henceforth to follow until Appomattox came. Bomb-proof critics might assail him with shallow criticisms, but the “hardiest troops that ever laughed at hunger, cold or danger,” never wavered in their conviction that their leader was matchless.”
