Defending, Not Attacking the Constitution

By       (Page 1 of 2 pages)   1 comment

Yesterday, I was e-mailed by a well-known web site to advance their agenda of supporting AZ HB 2586 with the apparent intent of making Arizona a "safer" place to live. Later, Rep. Peggy Judd, R-Wilcox, AZ following protests, reluctantly dropped HB 2586 which would have increased the public's fear of violence within the towns and villages of southern border states to the detriment of citizens and businesses within the proposed 62 mile wide corridor.


There seems no end to the paranoia fertilized and watered by the corporate/ banking world with the sole intention of disarming the public at the same time that billions of dollars are spent for wars of aggression in the Middle East which results in murders of hundreds, if not thousands, of innocent women, children and other non-combatants in night-time assassination raids upon them. This includes rape, and mutilation. Drone attacks indiscriminately murder non-combatants as well. Collateral damage is rife.


Here at home, corporations and banks get away with breaking U.S. laws because of the extreme wealth held and controlled by these "persons." These play little if any taxes while the taxes on the middle class increase as our right to vote is compromised. The multi-millionaires and billionaires do as they please as their purchased senators and congressmen do their bidding.


Who of us can deny that Goldman Sachs exercises major control of the U.S. Government?


Who can deny that ex-Vice President Dick Cheney should have spent jail-time for violating Texas Game Laws and for his wanton disregard for the life of Harry Whittington whom he remorselessly but, accidently shot in the heart several years back?   Whether a "Dick" Cheney, a Rene Strauss-Kahn or a Mitt Romney, the truth is the same.


Money Rules.


The attitude of the greediest of the greedy is: "I don't THINK I'm above the law. I AM above the law."


Liberals and Progressive Democrats do a disservice to us all by embracing the gun-grabbing in Chicago and Washington, D.C.  Obama and Eric Holder's Justice Department illegally and fatally pushed the Homeland Security BATFE and the Border Patrol, in operation "Fast and Furious," to sell guns to Mexican drug lords. The plan was to continue to falsely claim that the guns originated in illegal sales by licensed gun dealers. This would result in increasingly callous gun control and seizures of them. Meanwhile, "War Hawk" Hillary smooches the posterior of thieving Monsanto and is ready to sign the U.N.'s agreement on Arms Control (not nuclear and not control, but rather seizure of small arms) before it is even written.
