How Will You Celebrate?

Caution: Urkel Content. I'll keep it brief.

Watching the news this morning on one of the networks...
"(Nothing But Communism" as they called it in Beijing this summer.)
Seems like all they are talking about today, and by logical extension, probably all through the weekend and next week, is the upcoming Anointment Ascension Coronation Sickening Display of Hypocrisy* slated for Tuesday.
The historical aspect isn't lost on me...
Yes, The American People elected a black President.
Well, a half-black President was elected. Not so impressive to me, but then, I'm not hung up on the race issue. Want to impress me more?
Elect a qualified black person of slave descent; a 4th Generation Black American man or woman from the streets of Philly or St. Louis or Detroit.
Now you're talking.

No, I'm more concerned with Urkel's bonafides... His complete lack of experience in governmental leadership, not his vast experience in ACORN-style community activism.
And worse than that, his position on several Constitutional issues.
Free speech, freedom of the press, the right to assembly, and the one that means the most to me...
Second Amendment rights.

His nomination of Holder as Attorney General and Urkel's known position on gun control and the desire to "remove guns from the hands of criminals" by removing guns from the hands of law-abiding citizens is disturbing.

Doubts? Check the facts for yourself:

1. Ban use of firearms for home defense.

2. Pass Federal laws eliminating your Right-to-Carry.

3. Ban the manufacture, sale, and possession of handguns.

4. Close down 90% of the gun shops in America.

5. Ban rifle ammunition commonly used for hunting and sport shooting.

6. Ban and confiscate rifles and shotguns commonly used for skeet, trap and hunting.

7. Increase federal taxes on guns and ammunition by 500 percent.

8. Restore voting rights for five million criminals including those who have been convicted of using a gun to commit a violent crime.

9. Expand the semi-auto ban to include millions more firearms.

10. Mandate a government-issued license to purchase a firearm.

And as a bonus:

11. Appoint judges to the U.S Supreme Court and
Federal Judiciary who share his views on the Second Amendment.

Hey- how about doing something about the criminals instead?

I'm trying to figure out how to celebrate the event myself...

I think I'll go to the range and run through a hundred rounds or so, then head home and raise a glass in mourning for the demise of the Bill or Rights.


1993 Clinton Inauguration= $33 Million
2005 Bush Inauguration= $42 Million - and huge protests about effrontery of having a party in light of economy and an on-going war in Trashcanistan and Iraq.
2009 Urkel Shindig= $145 to 160 Million.
And not a peep from Mark Cuban...

Get out the photo shop out and fix the headstone - 1 20 2008. Do you really want someone with a gun who doesn't know what year it is?

Jeebus, I screwed that one up!
Was so concerned with finding the date for the creation of the Bill of Rights I got a case New Years Amnesia.
Thanks for pointing out my fuckup.
