In a moment of sanity the Supreme Court of the United States of America ruled against the City of Chicago’s complete ban on hand guns. Evidently the ruling does leave an opening for limited restrictions. With the SCOTUS ruling, they have struck a blow against tyrants and tyrannical groups like the Chicago Daley Machine that seeks to leave the average citizen at the mercy of gun-toting criminals and the strong arms tactics of a police state. If the Daley Machine had its way the city of Chicago, the State of Illinois and the whole USA – would be restricted from owning any firearms that they could use to protect self, family and property. It wouldn’t surprise me if the Daley-like nanny-state statists around the country tried to take away our right to drive. After-all you stand a whole hell of a lot bigger chance of getting run over by a moving vehicle than getting shot. Following this SCOTUS ruling, it would not surprise me to see the Obama tax-the-bullets until the poor people cannot afford them legislation suggestion, to reappear. The fight against tyrants seeking to steal away the gun ownership rights afforded to citizens through the Second Amendment seems to be a never ending battle!

Let The Party and Mudslinging Begin!
Pope Obama’s Choice for the Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor, has made the same mistake so many people that get pushed or drawn into the political arena make – she stuck her foot in her mouth trying to make a cute pundit. In her case she made a statement that I have seen described as racist and sexist. I read the words and no matter how the pundits spin it – it is at the very least bigoted and sexist and in all fairness to reality it is a racist statement – even if it was made as a quip. The questions become: is she a racist and is she fit to serve on the Supreme Court?
The first one is not easy. Is she a racist – in my personal opinion, probably-maybe-who knows! In my opinion she certainly made a racist statement. It goes with the territory when members of a society that wants to call it self one nation yet still refers to themselves as Special-American such as Irish-Americans, Dutch-Americans, Jewish-Americans, African-Americans, Mexican-Americans and etc… and then demand special treatment. Heck I have lost count of the times I have been called a racist -for simply and factually calling Obama out to be the False Prophet of Hope and Change- mostly by the Leftist Socialist Nation Regulators of the Democrat Party. Now that is an actual bigotry of mine –Far Leftwing Progressives- despite my being a former Democrat Party supporter. I once was a Carter and a Gore Supporter – I scorn them both now. Still if you criticize anyone or their constituency that decides the individual is a Special-American you automatically open yourself to the tag of racist or tagged with some ‘ism ending slur. You can’t continue to segregate yourself from the country as a Special-American if you want to defeat bigotry and racism. All you do is deepen the dividing chasm. Democrat and Republican Party leadership realize this – and still they both choose to find ways to widen the chasm. And the lemmings of both parties continue to follow them over the cliffs. It is a free country and they get to make that choice.
The second question is Sotomayor fit to serve on the Supreme Court. Is she who I would want to see sitting on the bench? No. But I have yet to see anything brought out that says she is not as worthy as any other candidate Pope Obama will toss out for the nomination. I seriously doubt if she is any worse than the individual she is replacing. Whomever is President will attempt to choose a nominee that will make him and his political admirers giddy! Then the politicians get to grill the nominee and decide if they are worthy. That is part of the point of the hearing after all: to expose the merit of the nominee. The rest is for the eventual losing side to make their political points and punditry. Some of the politicians -from both sides of the aisle- will be using the process as way of repayment for some perceived past political sin committed by the opposing sides. And yes there will be mud slinging from both parties at each other, the candidates and the party faithful. Some of it will come back to haunt them later in life as Sotomayor’s previous episode of bigotry is now haunting her nomination. This is the somewhat-United States of America after all and a media fed circus full of finger-pointing, name-calling and mudslinging are what our political system is all about. Let the party and the mudslinging begin!
Following this weeks Supreme Court decision to overturn a Washington DC law defying the Second Amendment by banning citizen handgun ownership, the Illinois Sate Rifle has filed a related suit to challenge a similar Chicago law banning the ownership of handguns. May the force be with them! The Supreme Court ruling has not went over well with Illinois Governor Rod Blagodabitch, who stated the ruling scared him or Chicago Mayor Richard Daly —> who doesn’t seem to mind that aldermen can carry weapons, it just bothers him that the citizens of his city might want the same protection. As the effects of the ruling picks up steam, it is evident that citizens across this nation will attempt to reclaim their gun ownership rights stolen by misguided politicians looking to pander to anti-gun lobbyist movements. It was good to see the Supreme Court get this ruling correct. Hopefully the road to reclaiming our gun ownership rights from clowns like Blago and Daly has just become easier!!!!
In a small but clear victory for the citizens of the USA, the Supreme Court has ruled against Big Brother Government attempts at eliminating the rights of self-preservation given to us through the Second Amendment. That amendment assures people the right to bear and own firearms. For years Big Government have tried to legislate away those rights. In this case it was ruled that the District of Columbia’s total ban on hand guns violated the rights give to USAmerican citizens under the Second Amendment. The ruling stated that the Constitution does not permit governments the absolute prohibition of weapons held and used for self-defense in the home. The decision still leaves a lot of unanswered issues in our constitutional given right to own weaponry but it was a victory for the people and a loss to places like Washington D.C. and Chicago that would strip the citizens of this country of the right to protect their family, friends, loved ones and themselves leaving them helpless against criminals. It is a small victory but a big step in the correct direction!!
