Our President Has Saved Us For Only $500 Million

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

In the news today, we hear that our wonderful president has signed 23 executive orders to eliminate gun crime.  While we are trillions in the red and are jeopardizing our country's credit and laying huge debt on our descendants, these programs are a bargain for only $500 million.  I am positive that the taxpayers will see the benefit.

High capacity magazines of over 10 rounds will be eliminated.  Criminals will never think of using, say, two or more magazines of 10 which are switched in about three seconds each.  Armor-piercing bullets will be eliminated.  Regular bullets available everywhere cannot kill people.  He has established background checks.  Now, silly me, I thought we were already doing background checks but this time we really mean it.  Criminals can't get guns except from a licensed gun dealer so they'll be stopped in their tracks.  Proposed mental health programs in schools will catch the deranged.  And an officer in each school will catch anyone who slips thru the above cracks.  If you've visited East Hamilton School you will understand how one officer can be all places at once and therefore thwart any threat.

AOL news today says the sudden surge in NRA membership is due to a highly discounted membership.  The White House called the NRA a "bunch of cowards" today.  I am a coward as I joined last week and I failed to know about any "highly discounted" membership.  Rats.

Of course, it's ironic for a person who is constantly surrounded by secret service agents with guns to call normal citizens who wish for protection to use their 2nd amendment right to own a weapon. 

Can't vouch for accuracy but I read today that the Sandy Hook massacre was not committed with an assault rifle.  The article says that the assault rifle was left in the vehicle and that the rampage was committed with handguns.  Can anyone get this information to the White House so they can ban handguns, too?  Hurry.

We're saved.  What a deal for only $500 million.  What a president.

While the SCOTUS may have determined that anchor babies and their parents are subject to jurisdiction of the United States, they missed the intent of the 14th Amendment all together.  All one really needs to do is look at the 13th, 14th, and 15th to reach the conclusion that the 14th was intended to secure citizenship and to provide equal protection under the law for freed ...
