The obama in his own words…

February 18, 2010

The epic failure that is known as the impostor in chief does a great job of pulling the wool over peoples eyes. However, some people are not so sheepish as others. You be the Judge.

Hat Tip to Texas Fred!

In another homage to the pointy eared vulcan Fred presents us with this. Real I.D. anyone?

Swamp tactics, reconciliation not Turkey hunting!

February 18, 2010

Well, the thugs in Congress are back at it again, trying to pretend that they are doing what the American people want, while still treating us like red headed step children that are just to stupid to know what is good for us…

“Those unversed in the arcana of Congressional procedure should familiarize themselves with ‘reconciliation.’ It’s just another word for nothing left to lose — that is, it’s the tactic Democrats seem increasingly likely to use to bypass the ordinary legislative rules and railroad ObamaCare into law with a bare partisan majority of 50 Senators, plus Vice President Joe Biden. Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced … that Democrats ‘have set the stage’ for reconciliation. ‘It’s up to us to make sure the public knows that this is not extraordinary,’ she said. ‘It would be a reflection on us if we could not convince people that this is not an unusual place to go.’ Yet the reconciliation gambit really would be unprecedented for social legislation of this cost and scale. And as a matter of procedure, it would also be unusual, to say the least. As Mrs. Pelosi’s senior health adviser, Wendell Primus, explained … House Democrats would pass a series of ‘fixes’ to the Senate bill. The Senate would then pass the House reconciliation bill, sending amendments to President Obama to a bill that — strictly speaking — didn’t exist, because it hadn’t yet emerged from the House. The House would then retroactively pass the Senate bill as is. Democrats say this will all be kosher as long as Mr. Obama signs the Senate bill before he signs the reconciliation bill. ‘There’s a certain skill, there’s a trick,’ Mr. Primus conceded, ‘but I think we’ll get it done.’ So even as Democrats themselves acknowledge that one reason the public hates ObamaCare so much is the corrupt tactics they have used to advance it through Congress, they still plan to try to land this Pelosian triple-handspring-quadruple pole vault to passage.” –The Wall Street Journal

Constitutional Carry Passes out of Committee in Wyoming!

February 18, 2010

On Tuesday, February 16, the House Judiciary Committee passed House Bill 113, which would allow constitutional carry.  HB 113 will now head to the Committee of the Whole for consideration.

HB 113 would allow those who meet the requirements currently set forth in the concealed carry permit system to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense without a permit.  This legislation addresses the current problem of a burdensome and restrictive permit system by removing the training requirement and other prohibitive barriers in Wyoming.

If signed into law, this legislation would also keep the current permit system intact for the residents concerned about carrying in other states with reciprocal agreements.  Those who are currently prevented from legally carrying, be it open or concealed, will still face the same penalties should they decide to break the law.

On Wednesday, February 17, the State Senate amended and passed Senate File 26.  SF 26 will now head to the House.  NRA will continue to work to amend the additional language to SF 26 to further strengthen this important carry reform legislation.
SF 26 as amended, would limit the Attorney General’s ability to determine permit reciprocity by taking away his or her power to determine if a state has similar laws authorizing permits.  If amended to include the additional NRA language, SF 26 would also remove local law enforcement’s ability to reject a permit application if the applicant meets all criteria.


There is still time to add additional amendments as SF 26 moves through the House, so please contact your State Representative and respectfully urge him or her to vote to add the NRA’s amendment.
Contact information can me found here.
