Which side of the fence?

June 30th, 2010 . by TexasFred

Which side of the fence?

Have you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on? This isn’t just a re-post of an email we’ve all seen many times. Read past that part. I was sent this again today and for some reason I was inspired to write the post below the email. I hope you enjoy it!

If a Republican doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one.
If a Democrat doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat.
If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a Republican is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A Democrat wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a Republican doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels.
Democrats demand that those they don’t like be shut down.

If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church.
A Democrat non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

If a Republican decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
A Democrat demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a Republican reads this, he’ll forward it so his friends know how to vote in November!
A Democrat will close it because he’s “offended”.

We’ve all seen this come around in an email before, it’s been out there for a while.

I’m not a fence sitter, I’m not a middle of the road kind of guy. I have long felt that standing in the middle of the road only got you one thing, RUN OVER! I stand firmly planted on the RIGHT and I make no apology for doing so.

I am NOT a Republican. I have made that clear on many occasions, but I can agree with this original email because the Republican that is used in the above narrative is a real Republican, not some PC wannabe, or a reach across the aisle appeaser or, the most dreaded of all, a damned RINO.

Re-read the above and replace the word Republican with the word Conservative. Then you have me and MY stand on life in America.

One thing the above narrative doesn’t mention is ILLEGAL immigration.

Conservatives aren’t against immigration, they simply want to see the law of the land enforced.

Democrats welcome, and want to give amnesty to the law breakers.

I have stated many times, I am the grandson of an immigrant. I hold nothing against immigrants as long as they come to this nation LEGALLY, strive to become Americans, work, pay taxes, go about their lives like other Americans, raise their families to BE Americans, in every sense of the word, and make some sort of positive contribution to this nation.

The Democrats, on the other hand, welcome ALL to this land, no matter HOW they got here or to what purpose they came.

They are welcomed with promises of amnesty, a Social Security card, welfare, healthcare, food stamps, free education, (free to them) and myriad other government and social programs that are unavailable to the average American citizen.

Conservatives have respect for the laws of this land. We respect the Constitution and we KNOW that it was written by men far wiser than ourselves.

Democrats want to usurp the laws of the land and either rewrite or destroy the Constitution, the very fabric of America.

Russian agents infiltrated US society, charges say

Russian agents infiltrated US society, charges say

NEW YORK (AP) - They sometimes worked in pairs and pretended to be married so they could blend in as the couple next door while working as spies in a throwback to the Cold War, complete with fake identities, invisible ink, coded radio transmissions and encrypted data to avoid detection, authorities say.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Farbiarz, speaking Monday in federal court in Manhattan, called the allegations against 10 people living in the Northeast “the tip of the iceberg” of a conspiracy of Russia’s intelligence service, the SVR, to collect inside U.S. information, the biggest such bust in recent years.

Each of the 10 was charged with conspiracy to act as an agent of a foreign government without notifying the U.S. attorney general, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison upon conviction. Two criminal complaints outlining the charges were filed in U.S. District Court in New York.

Police in Cyprus said Tuesday that an 11th defendant, a Canadian citizen wanted by U.S. authorities on suspicion of espionage and money laundering, was arrested in the morning at Larnaca airport while trying to fly to Budapest, Hungary.

The days of Boris and Natasha, or Spy vs Spy are NOT over it appears.

Russia angrily denounced the U.S. arrests as an unjustified throwback to the Cold War, and senior lawmakers said some in the U.S. government may be trying to undercut President Barack Obama’s warming relations with Moscow.

Russian SVR folks, read: KGB, they changed the letters in an effort to placate the politically correct among us, anyway, they are not too bright if they believe the U.S. government is trying to undercut Obama’s efforts to warm up relations with Russia.

If there are any real PATRIOTS in the U.S. government, they are trying to tie Obama in to this as a Russian plant, a student of all things anti-American. An operative perhaps, the Manchurian Candidate come to life…

“These actions are unfounded and pursue unseemly goals,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement. “We don’t understand the reasons which prompted the U.S. Department of Justice to make a public statement in the spirit of Cold War-era spy stories.”

I’m going to take a shot in the dark here. Not being privy to this operation and roundup, I am of the opinion that the U.S. Department of Justice made a public statement on this because, oh, I don’t know, maybe because it’s true?? Do you suppose?

Intelligence on Obama’s foreign policy, particularly toward Russia, appears to have been a top priority for the Russian agents, prosecutors said.

Of course Obama is a top priority for Russian agents. They have to keep track of their man in the White House and make sure that he’s doing the bidding of his Communist masters.

The one thing that does puzzle me is this; the DOJ is run by Eric Holder, he IS the Attorney General of the United States. Most Conservatives believe that Holder is Obama’s man at Justice, why would he allow this to take place? Was there a plot afoot that would imperil Obama and his deep cover as a Manchurian Candidate perhaps?

The papers allege the defendants’ spying has been going on for years.

In ALL seriousness, it has been going on for years. Anyone that buys into this Détente BS, or the Communism died fantasy needs to reexamine the way they look at reality. Russia has never had any less desire to destroy the United States. The destruction of democracy is the goal of ALL Russian leaders, otherwise, they wouldn’t BE Russian leaders.

Justices extend gun owner rights nationwide

Justices extend gun owner rights nationwide

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court held Monday that the Constitution’s Second Amendment restrains government’s ability to significantly limit “the right to keep and bear arms,” advancing a recent trend by the John Roberts-led bench to embrace gun rights.

By a narrow, 5-4 vote, the justices also signaled, however, that some limitations on the right could survive legal challenges.

Writing for the court in a case involving restrictive laws in Chicago and one of its suburbs, Justice Samuel Alito said that the Second Amendment right “applies equally to the federal government and the states.”

The court was split along familiar ideological lines, with five conservative-moderate justices in favor of gun rights and four liberals opposed. Chief Justice Roberts voted with the majority.

Two years ago, the court declared that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess guns, at least for purposes of self-defense in the home.

Justices extend gun owner rights nationwide

I am, have always been, and will continue to be a supporter of the Second Amendment, I will be that supporter until the day I die. That will be the day they can have MY guns, the day I die. Not one day sooner!

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

What part of that is so hard for LIBERAL law makers and bleeding heart gun grabbers to fully understand?

Militia – noun
1. a body of citizens enrolled for military service, and called out periodically for drill but serving full time only in emergencies.
2. a body of citizen soldiers as distinguished from professional soldiers.
3. all able-bodied males considered by law eligible for military service.
4. a body of citizens organized in a paramilitary group and typically regarding themselves as defenders of individual rights against the presumed interference of the federal government.

We, The People, we ARE that militia!

We all know that the military is supposed to be the protector of the land, but let me pose this to my readers; what happens when the military isn’t enough? What happens when the military is led by a Commander in Chief that is NOT an American? A CiC that has but one desire in his heart? That desire being the total destruction of the USA as we know it? A CiC that isn’t adverse to destroying the United States military if that’s what it takes to fulfill HIS dream?

An armed American is also a defender of THIS nation. We are the back-up to the U.S. military, and we are the last line of defense against an oppressive regime, one much similar to what we now see in the White House.

If this nation were to be attacked with nuclear weapons, a militia is a moot point until AFTER the attack. A militia will be the survivors, and once we can see what’s left of this nation and our military, make NO mistake, We, The People, would once again be called upon to defend what is ours and what this nation stands for!

Do you know why the United States wasn’t invaded during WWII? It actually had very little to do with our military capabilities.

“You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” - Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto (Japanese Navy)
