Ten reasons to vote Democrat by Letterman:
#10. I vote Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I’ve decided to marry my German Shepherd.
#9. I vote Democrat because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon at 15% isn’t.
#8. I vote Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.
#7. I vote Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.
#6. I vote Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves. I am also thankful that we have a 911 service that gets police to your home in order to identify your body after a home invasion.
#5. I vote Democrat because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive and comfy.
#4. I vote Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away Social Security from those who paid into it.
#3. I vote Democrat because I believe that businesses should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrat Party sees fit.
#2. I vote Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.
… And, the #1 reason I vote Democrat is because I think it’s better to pay $billions$ for oil to people who hate us, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher, or fish here in America. We don’t care about the beetles, gophers, or fish in those other countries.
“The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits”
I know all of you will appreciate this definition. The best description of Obama care so far: Remember when Nancy Pelosi said: “We have to pass it, to find out what’s in it.”
A physician called into a radio show and said: “That’s the definition of a stool sample.”

Written by: Allen West on June 12, 2016
I awoke this morning to learn about the horrific mass shooting in Orlando. I want to first and foremost express my sincere condolences to the families who have lost their loved ones and those wounded and scarred for life. Let me be very clear: I could care less about the nature of the establishment attacked; they are Americans. And as I sit here penning this missive, President Barack Obama has just completed his remarks, and to say they were disappointing would be the most positive thing I could say. We know this was an Islamic terror attack. We know this is the worst mass shooting of Americans in our history — and the number of fifty dead could rise. We know Omar Mateen shouted out Allahu Akbar and pledged his allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
And President Obama’s own FBI has said this was a terrorism investigation. Yet, Obama could only direct his most stringent comments at gun control and for us to “not give into fear and turn against each other.” If anything, we need to turn against Islamic jihadism. However, as he did with San Bernardino, Obama will make this more about gun control. And I’m quite sure Hillary Clinton will blame the gun manufacturers and stores, and seek more fines and regulations against them.
In this world of the reality of our enemy, the worst thing that could have happened for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton just did — an Islamic terror attack on our soil. Perhaps Obama shouldn’t spend so much time “slow jamming” with Jimmy Fallon. And spare me the “he’s killed more terrorists” line with drone usage – that’s not a panacea folks. A drone cannot crush an enemy and its ideology who replaces the ones and twos like the cockroaches they are. Funny, just last week we shared stories about honor killings in Pakistan and the savage butchering of a Christian woman in Nigeria. Little did I know that within the week we would suffer such an atrocity in America.
And why do we hear people struggling with the question of “motive?” Let me clarify something, why does a 29-year-old Muslim man drive from Port St. Lucie, Florida to Orlando, about 120 miles, with weapons to shoot up a club? It’s obviously not because he’d been refused entry. The motive is clear and the time must come to accept the violence and reality of Islamic jihadism, plain and simple.
Something that those of us who understand the culture of Islam and Islamism must share with you all – we’ve entered into the period known as Ramadan. Any Islamic jihadist who kills infidels and dies doing so during this period, is awarded with what is called “shaheed.” It is an elevated status of Islamic jihadism. That’s the reason why you see an increase of attacks during this period — and don’t forget what just happened in Tel Aviv. We now know ISIS has “officially” claimed responsibility for this attack. This is war and there is only one response: the skies must be dominated by our aircraft to pummel ISIS. That’s the only response, not as Obama did with San Bernardino, calling for more gun control. You see, we fight to live, they fight to die. And this is not about someone having a card saying “Member of ISIS since 2013.” There’s a reason why the al-Qaida magazine is called “Inspire” and the ISIS magazine is Dabiq, named after a battle of Armageddon – they’re a call for jihad, designed to spur these attacks.
Let’s be honest about something. Just close your eyes and imagine…what if the assailant in Orlando were a white Christian male? Yes, I think you get my point. The progressive socialist left now finds itself in a real conundrum, set upon the horns of a dilemma.
They’ve been spending all their time of late harping on bathroom usage for transgender people — and attacking Christians, states and businesses for not being subservient based on religious beliefs and principles. Now, what are Obama and Clinton (as the presumptive nominee), going to do, since one of their beloved special interest lobby groups has been targeted – (and not just in Orlando; don’t forget the arrest in Los Angeles). Will this community now see these progressive leftists as they are, incapable of protecting anyone, including from a vile enemy who does not hide its demonic intentions?
Or will we just be like Europe after Charlie Hebdo, the Paris cafe and concert hall, Belgium airport, the mass sexual assaults in Germany and rapes in Sweden and excuse it away until we forget? After all, in due time the left actually blamed the cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo — even our own Secretary of State John Kerry implied that.
Anyone remember what happened after San Bernardino? What happened after the Islamic jihadist attack in Chattanooga at the Navy Reserve Support Facility? Mateen shouted out “Allahu Akbar” the same as Nidal Hasan at Ft. Hood and even after the trial and sentencing, the Obama administration still refers to this as “workplace violence” — is what happened in Orlando soon to be called just a hate crime?
The worst Islamic jihadist terror attacks on U.S. soil after 9-11 have occurred on President Obama’s watch. And he wants to tell us he’s kept us safer than any other president?
There must be consequences and it’s not about us being told to remain calm, seek peace, and be more accepting. No, the consequences must not be imposed on us, America. Who harbors these people? Where do they assemble and get their inspiration to jihad and violence? Who was Omar Mateen’s imam, mullah, cleric? How long was Mateen on a watch list and why was his investigation dropped? I’m tired of seeing the faux aspect of security with the innocuous drills we go through at the TSA while creatures like Mateen, or Syed Farouk and Tashfeen Malik walk amongst us.
I’m tired of an Islamist-sympathizing president who just cannot bring himself to utter the words or realize the issue. It doesn’t bother me one bit to be referred to in denigrating and disparaging terms from the leftist “coexist” crowd and their Islamo-fascist comrades. I know who this enemy is, and the day is coming that I may just be in the position to do as Charles “The Hammer” Martel did at the Battle of Tours against the Islamic invasion — and it would be my pleasure to do so.
How many more Islamic jihadist attacks shall we endure before we all realize these jerks don’t just attack conservatives? In two months, will we remember this atrocity, or will we have blamed ourselves, having been told if we just had more gun control, it never would’ve happened. And give me a break about the “lone wolf” crap. It’s time to start hunting wolves!

MUSLIM “REFUGEES” INTO OUR COUNTRY!!ARE WE THAT CRAZY ???
Clinton Is Only For Her Own Self And The Family's Crime Family-To Hell With Everyone Else!!, Clinton Is Really Anti-Woman!, Clinton Will Stack The Courts With Enemy Judges!, Hillary Is The Worst Choice For America!, Vote For Trump Who Really Loves America!
Very Important Voting Information:
Before You Say You Won’t Vote For Whomever Is Nominated (GOP), Consider This. Something to think about, indeed . . .
Supreme Court Of The United States:
Some people have brought up the fact that they won’t vote for the Republican nominee if the eventual nominee is Trump i.e. not the man they wanted.
I just want to put something in perspective.
Justice Scalia’s seat is vacant.
Ginsberg is 82 years old
Kennedy is 79
Breyer is 77
Thomas is 67.
Data shows that the average age of a Supreme Court retirement or death occurs after 75.
These are 5 vacancies that will likely come up over the next 4-8 years. The next President will have the power to potentially create a 7-2 Supreme Court skewed in their ideology.
Think about that… 7-2!!!
If the next President appoints 5 young justices, it will guarantee control of the Supreme Court for an entire generation. And 7-2 decisions will hold up much more over time than 5-4 decisions which are viewed as lacking in mandate.
Hillary has made it clear she will use the Supreme Court to go after the 2nd Amendment. She has literally said that the Supreme Court was wrong in its Heller decision stating that the Court should overturn and remove the individual right to keep and bear arms. Period. She also supports ALL the societal and immigration policies followed by B.HO. and sees us to be needing added “correctness”
Anyone and Everyone who is saying that they won’t vote for someone if they are the GOP nominee, please realize this. Hear this!
If Hillary Clinton wins and gets to make these appointments, you likely will never see another conservative victory at the Supreme Court level for the rest of your life. Ever. U.S. traditions will end forever.
… VOTE for the GOP Nominee! Whoever it is!
Remember Romney? Three million conservatives who voted for McCain did not cast a vote for Romney …. and the result was four additional years of B.H.O.
AND ONE FINAL THOUGHT , she’s already on the record as saying that her buddy, B.H.O. “would make a great Supreme Court Justice.”
DID YOU JUST READ THAT LAST SENTENCE???????
NOW ARE YOU SCARED????
The Immaturity of Supporting Hillary Clinton as a Woman
Tuesday, Jun 21, 2016
This Article Was Originally Posted On Townhall.com
It is hard to imagine a more immature or morally primitive stance than that of progressive women (and men) who argue how important it is to support Hillary Clinton because, as your local college would put it, she identifies as a woman.
One perfect example of such thinking was the recent statement made by former Secretary of State Madeline Albright at an event on behalf of Clinton. Albright announced that “there is a special place in hell” for women who don’t support women, meaning in this instance, for women who don’t vote for Clinton.
It is important to note that such immature thinking is to be found only on the left. Racial solidarity, ethnic solidarity, class solidarity and gender solidarity all matter to the left, not the right. When Margaret Thatcher first ran for the office of British prime minister, she would have become the first female prime minister in British history. But British conservatives, including women who supported her, rarely mentioned her gender, let alone offered it as a reason to vote for her.
Conservatives in the UK and America vote for their values, not the gender or ethnicity of politicians.
Then there are all those parents who yearn to tell their daughters that with the first female president there is truly no accomplishment in life to which their daughter should not aspire.
But that message is as morally problematic as Albright’s.
Offering Clinton to one’s daughter as a model to aspire to — given the former secretary of state’s long history of lying and recent history of selling the power of her office to enrich herself and her husband — is telling one’s daughter that gender trumps decency. As such, it speaks volumes about how insignificant character is to Clinton supporters.
In addition, putting aside the immorality and immaturity of gender solidarity, having a female president would be as useless to women as having a black president was to blacks.
In 2008 we were repeatedly told that electing a black president would be a tremendous gain for black-white relations and for black life in general.
But black-white relations are worse now than in most living Americans’ memories — in large measure thanks to President Barack Obama and his race baiting, from repeatedly inviting the greatest living race demagogue, Rev. Al Sharpton; to the White House, to insulting the Cambridge, Massachusetts police for its dealings with a black Harvard professor; to his incendiary interventions in the Trayvon Martin and Ferguson, Missouri cases. Consequently, instead of acknowledging that America is the least racist multiracial, multiethnic country in world history, more blacks believe America is a congenitally racist country today than any time since the civil rights era.
We were also told that with an Obama victory, young black men would see a black man in the White House and then model their behavior after his. But despite President Obama’s personal example of marriage and devoted fatherhood, the birthrate of blacks out of wedlock reportedly remains over 70 percent. Additionally, crime rates in the inner city areas of Baltimore, Maryland, Chicago, Illinois and other major cities are up, and black men are committing murders and being murdered in greater numbers than before the Obama presidency.
Furthermore, under Obama’s economic policies blacks have lost ground in every measurable economic category over the last seven years. More blacks are impoverished today than before the Obama era.
In other words, having a black president has done nothing for blacks. Likewise, the dozens of black members of Congress, the first black attorney general, the blacks holding other cabinet positions and the black mayors of major cities have done nothing to improve black quality of life.
Only the left claims that having members of one’s gender or ethnic or racial group in political power is important. This claim is fraudulent. One of the most successful ethnic groups in American history, Asian-American, has virtually no political power. Has that deleteriously affected Asian-Americans?
So, how will having a female in the White House actually help women? Unless you think that rendering more and more women dependent on the government rather than their husbands or themselves is a good thing for women, it will do for women just as black leaders have done for blacks: more harm than good.
Let me end with a heretical thought:
America would be a far better place — meaning there would be many more happy and many more decent Americans — if more parents told their daughters that they might consider becoming a great mother and a great wife in addition to, or even in preference to, becoming a great lawyer, CEO or president.
Our society doesn’t lack women or men who wish to be president nearly as much as it lacks women who want to be mothers and wives, and men who want to be fathers and husbands.

WITH A SLEW OF QUESTIONS ABOUT OBAMA’S RELIGIOUS LEANINGS, AND WITH CURIOSITY’S ABOUT HOW HE SEEMS TO BE VERY SYMPATHIC AND PROTECTIVE IN REGARD TO MUSLIMS WORLDWIDE, AND WHILE HE SEEMS TO OPERATE OPPOSITELY WHEN IT COMES TO CHRISTIANS AND CHRISTIANITY–ONE COULD EASILY WONDER IF HE REALLY IS A MUSLIM! THERE ARE MANY VIDEOS IN REGARD TO THESE AND OTHER THINGS INVOLVING THIS U. S. PRESIDENT! STUDY FOR YOURSELF!
On National Security we should be very afraid of Obama. In his book “The Audacity of Hope”, he says he will side with the Muslims! He is dangerous!
THERE IS NO REASON TO HAVE TO DIG IN DEEPER AND CREATE MORE GUN LAWS AND REGULATIONS! THERE ARE PLENTY OF THOSE ALREADY ON THE BOOKS! DON’T LET THE ANTI-GUN IDIOTS GET THEIR DAMN UGLY NOSES ANY FUTHER UNDER THE TENT! THERE IS NO WAY TO EVER SATISFY ANY OF THEM OTHER THAN COMPLETELY GIVING UP AND GIVING IN IN EVERY WAY BY GIVING UP ALL OF YOUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS TO OWN FIREARMS AND ALL OF YOUR RIGHTS TO DEFEND YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILIES, ETC. WITH A FIREARM! DON’T EVER FORGET THAT THOSE IN THE GOVERNMENTS OF OUR COUNTRY AND ALL CRIMINALS WILL CONTINUE TO BE WELL ARMED!–I SUBMIT TO YOU THAT YOU PROBABLY CAN’T TRUST MANY OF THEM IF YOU GIVE UP YOU GUN RIGHTS–ESPECIALLY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT! BE AWAKE AND BE ALERT TO THE FACTS THAT ALL THEY WANT IS TO NEUTER ALL OF US AND MAKE US HELPLESS AND UNABLE TO DEFEND OURSELVES–MAKING US BE SUBMISSIVE TO ALL OF ALL OF THEIR CONTROLS OVER ALL OF US AND IN A POSITION WHERE WE HAVE TO PUT UP WITH ALL OF THEIR BULL-CRAP!!–AFTER GIVING UP ALL OF OUR FREEDOMS AND LIBERTIES!!! ANOTHER-WORDS–> DON’T EVER GIVE UP YOUR GUNS, OR YOUR RIGHTS TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS!!
Chuck Grassley is a Republican senator from Iowa and serves as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
This week, President Barack Obama announced executive actions related to guns. Here are 10 common myths about firearms.
Myth No. 1: Firearm purchases at gun shows do not require a background check due to the “gun show loophole.”
When the president and others refer to the “gun show loophole,” they imply that there are no background checks being done at gun shows. As a result, much of the public has been misinformed and are led to believe that individuals who purchase firearms at gun shows are not subject to a background check.
In reality, there is no “gun show loophole.” If an individual wants to purchase a firearm from a licensed firearms retailer, which typically makes up the majority of vendors at gun shows, the individual must fill out the requisite federal firearms paperwork and undergo a National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) background check.
The only firearms that are being purchased at gun shows without a background check are those being bought and sold between individuals, peer-to-peer, as opposed to buying a firearm from a gun dealer. These private sales are not at all different from selling a personal hunting rifle to the owner’s niece or nephew down the road. It is a private sale, and no background paperwork is required. The gun is private property, and the sale is made like a sale of the family’s good silver. The one difference is that the location of a gun show is being used to make the private sale.
Under current law, an individual is permitted to occasionally sell part, or all, of his personal firearms collection. These private sellers, however, cannot be “engaged in the business” of selling firearms. “Engaged in the business” means they can’t repeatedly sell firearms with the principal objective of earning funds to support themselves. Some of the individuals who wish to sell a portion, or all, of their personal firearms collection do so at the show and might display their wares on a table. These “private table sales,” however, are private, peer-to-peer sales and, therefore, do not require a background check. The president cannot change criminal statutes governing requirements for which sellers must conduct background checks. His new actions don’t do so and don’t claim to do so.
In a peer-to-peer, private firearms transaction, it is already illegal to sell a firearm to another individual if the seller “knows or has reasonable cause to believe” that the buyer meets any of the prohibited categories for possession of a firearm (felon, fugitive, illegal alien, etc.).
Myth No. 2: Gun shows lack any law enforcement presence and are a free-for-all for felons and other prohibited individuals to obtain firearms.
Local, state, and federal law enforcement are often present both in uniform and/or covertly in plain clothes to monitor and intervene in suspected unlawful firearms sales such as straw purchasing; purchases made by prohibited individuals, including non-residents; and the attempted sale of any illegal firearms.
Myth No. 3: Individuals who purchase firearms on the Internet are not subject to background checks.
An individual cannot purchase a firearm directly from a firearms retailer over the Internet and have that firearm shipped to him directly. An individual can pay for the firearm over the Internet at websites and online sporting goods retailers. The firearm, however, must be picked up from a federal firearms licensee, such as a gun store. In many cases, this is the brick-and-mortar store associated with the website where the gun purchase was made. Once at the retail store, the Internet purchaser must then fill out the requisite forms, including ATF Form 4473, which initiates the NICS background check process. Thus, an Internet purchase of a firearm from a firearms retailer requires a background check.
Individuals from the same state are able to advertise and purchase firearms from one another and use the Internet to facilitate the transaction. It is unlawful, under current law, to sell or transfer a firearm to an individual who is out of state. Any Internet sale, even between individuals, that crosses state lines would have to utilize a federal firearms licensee, such as a gun store, and the purchaser would be required to fill out the requisite state and federal paperwork and would undergo a background check.
Myth No. 4: The president’s Jan. 5 executive action on gun control represents landmark change regarding gun control.
With few exceptions, Obama’s executive action on firearms is nothing more than rhetoric regarding the status quo. Many senators have long argued for better and more robust enforcement of existing laws that prohibit criminals from owning guns.
It is the current law of the land that anyone engaged in the business of selling firearms must have a federal firearms license. The president’s action does not change current law, but merely restates existing court rulings on the meaning of “engaged in the business.
Myth No. 5: The Obama administration has made firearms enforcement a priority.
The Obama administration has used its limited criminal enforcement resources to focus on clemency for convicted and imprisoned felons, the investigation of police departments, and civil rights cases. The latter two categories represent important work, but the Department of Justice lost track of one of its core missions of enforcing criminal law: prosecuting violent criminals, including gun criminals.
The Obama administration is only now making firearms enforcement a priority. Clearly, enforcing the gun laws is a new initiative, or one of the president’s actions would not have been informing all of the 93 U.S. attorneys about it.
Proof of this lack of enforcement is revealed in the decline of weapons-related prosecutions during the Obama administration. As data obtained from the Executive Office of United States Attorneys, through a Freedom of Information Act request, reveal, firearms prosecutions are down approximately 25 percent under the Obama administration versus the last year of the Bush administration.
Myth No. 6: Mental health has nothing to do with gun control.
People with certain levels of mental illness are not permitted to own guns. Many of the recent mass killings were committed by mentally ill individuals. One of the keys to preventing further mass shootings and violence committed with firearms is addressing the issue of mental health.
Background checks to prevent the mentally ill from obtaining guns can work only if states provide mental health records to the NICS system. Too many states have failed to do so. Many of the worst offenders are states with the most stringent gun control laws. For multiple years now, many members of Congress have repeatedly called for and introduced legislation that would provide incentives for states to submit their mental health records for inclusion in the NICS database.
Myth No. 7: Obama’s executive action on gun control will thwart criminals’ ability to obtain firearms.
The president’s executive action regarding firearms is focused primarily on individuals who attempt to purchase firearms through the background check process.
Criminals, however, obtain firearms in myriad’s of illegal ways, including home invasion robbery; trading narcotics for firearms; burglary of homes, vehicles, and businesses; and straw purchasing.
My legislation, Senate Amendment 725, was specifically designed to combat the straw purchasing of firearms as well as firearms traffickers who transfer firearms to prohibited individuals and out-of-state residents.
Myth No. 8: There is a general consensus in America that greater gun control is needed to prevent mass shootings in the United States.
Despite the president’s statement to the contrary, polls have shown that the majority of Americans do not believe that stricter gun control would reduce the number of mass shootings in the United States.
The American public does not believe that making it harder for law-abiding Americans to obtain guns makes America safer. In fact, polls have shown that a majority of Americans think the United States would be safer if there were more individuals licensed and trained to carry concealed weapons. A majority opposes re-imposition of the “assault weapons” ban.
Myth No. 9: The terrorist “no-fly” list is a proper mechanism to bar Americans from purchasing firearms. —Obama, Jan. 5, 2016.
The no-fly list is actually multiple lists, which are generated in secret and controlled by executive branch bureaucrats. The Second Amendment right to bear arms has been determined by the U.S. Supreme Court to be a fundamental right. This puts the right to bear arms in our most closely guarded rights, similar to the rights to free speech and freedom of religion. It is unconstitutional to deprive an American citizen of his Second Amendment right without notice and an opportunity to be heard.
Myth No. 10: Gun retailers need to step up and refuse to sell semi-automatic weapons. —Obama, Jan. 5, 2016.
There is nothing unlawful about a semi-automatic firearm. A semi-automatic firearm simply means that a round is discharged with each pull of the trigger. These include most shotguns used for waterfowl hunting and rifles commonly used for target shooting.
Notes From Wolf:
There Is Now And There Will Always Be A Constant Borage Of Attacks On Our Second Amendment Rights To Keep And Bear Arms! From Our Opposition, we can expect that they will do and say anything to get their way and get our guns with lies, deceits, etc.. Please see that all they want is complete power over all of us! We are the masses!–The Majority! Don’t ever give in to their attempts and demands to grab our guns!
If for some reason, you don’t understand about guns and don’t think you want your own gun, please keep it to yourself! You and our country are safer just because their are many good and patriotic Americans that do keep and bear arms! Don’t go around speaking out that you don’t like guns and advertise that you don’t have one! It’s much better and safer that you keep your mouth shut and take comfort in the fact that your neighbors and friends have guns and are capable of possibly being able to help protect you and your family, etc.. Just like the stupid gun free zones that are posted and advertised in various places around our America where people are subjected to much greater risks of being attacked by some crazed and cowardly nut case because they can have their way without opposition–running your mouth about your distain for guns and letting everyone know that you surely don’t have one and don’t want one could very likely put you and your family, etc. in great danger someday! Don’t ever let anyone know how inept and unprepared you are or may be to defend yourself, anything, or anyone!
Guns Don’t Kill! People Kill People! If People Want To Kill Something Or Someone, They will Find A Way, Gun Or No Gun! Please Don’t Ever Demonize Guns Or The Rights Of Good American Citizens To Enjoy Their ownership And Legal Use Of Guns! Firearms are not only essential but necessary! “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!” (Amendment Two, Bill Of Rights, United States Constitution!)
