Observation, Humbly Offered...
As this is written, our Fearless(ful?) Leader, one Mr. B. Hussein Obama, is in Viet Nam to announce that our decades-old embargo against the sale of weaponry to these nice folks is being rescinded. The same folks, you might recall, who killed off a big chunk of an entire generation of our young men and women in uniform back in the 1960's and 1970's.
Yet, juxtaposed against that rather jarring factoid, Mr. Obama is still doing his level best here at home to disarm all of us good, solid, red-blooded, God-fearing, completely vetted and law-abiding 'Muricans.
One simply must ask, "Why?"
He obviously doesn't fear a bunch of communists, who have proven themselves more than willing to strap themselves to a tree branch for who knows how long, armed to the teeth, just waiting for a G.I. to come looking for them, running around hither and thither with the newest, nicest, most powerful and lethal, shiny new made-in-America guns, rockets, bazookas, artillery, fighter planes and bombs, yet continues to pine for a time when Jim Bob and Luther will have to fork over their semi-automatic pistols, rifles and shotguns (how about that for a good long sentence?).
All I can figure is that he is in favor of the Vietnamese form of government and wishes ours was more like theirs. Then, he could simply wave his imperious, un-calloused, carefully manicured hand and all of our three-plus-million guns would simply vanish. He could then have his figurative way with us, you know, the Great Unwashed. It would be soooo much simpler, then, to eliminate our freedoms, crank up our taxes, redistribute our existing wealth and enshrine himself into the pantheon of American lordship without fear that Jim Bob and Luther would come after his imperious little butt.
Or, unlike his anti-gun self, so famous for having said, on videotape, doncha' know, that he didn't believe us ordinary Americans should be permitted to own guns (!), he could take a page out of The Donald's playbook. Don Don has mastered the art of equivocation. Brought it to a new level of sophistication, he has! Just this past weekend, as an example, while being interviewed on Fox New Channel's early morning "Fox and Friends," he was asked whether he thought guns should be allowed into America's classrooms. He said, and I quote:
"I don't want to have guns in classrooms. Although, in some cases, teachers should have guns in classrooms." He went on to add, "I'm not advocating guns in classrooms. In some cases - and a lot of people have made this case - teachers should be able to have guns, these teachers should be able to have guns in classrooms."
Maybe that's why Obama has been named America's Best Gun Salesman of All Time and The Donald just earned the National Rifle Association's endorsement for President of the United States...
