"...attempts to regulate the civilian possession of firearms have five political functions. They (1) increase citizen reliance on government and tolerance of increased police powers and abuse; (2) help prevent opposition to the government; (3) facilitate repressive action by government and its allies; (4) lesson the pressure for major or radical reform; and (5) can be selectively enforced against those perceived to be a threat to government." ~ Raymond Kessler
War of Assumption
Exclusive to STR
January 25, 2007
Last night the Presidential moron inadvertently showed how little he and his buffoons in Congress think and care about people in general and US military people in particular. Boy George said in his 2007 State of the Union speech concerning the soon to be four year old war in Iraq, 'We went into this largely united, in our assumptions and in our convictions.' (!) CAN YOU BELIEVE BUSH AND THE POLITICIANS STARTED A WAR BASED ON ASSUMPTIONS???!!! How can this be??? This is a war crime if there ever was one! A definite crime against humanity! This spoiled little rich kid, this former cheerleader, has the criminal audacity to send young people off to kill and to be killed on assumptions! He said it himself! And all the political whores in attendance didn't bat an eye! They know it's true, too! This was and is truly a bi-partisan crime! Remember when he was at the Press Club dinner pretending to look for the lie he told the world in order to get this terrible war started, the Weapons of Mass Destruction??? He looked under tables and he looked under chairs saying after each fake attempt with his girlish little smirk, 'Not here, no, they're not there!' to the laughter of the hollow human beings who were, and are, pretending to be journalists who made up the crowd. When I saw that on national television, I thought it would spark a mutiny in the armed forces, but instead there was nothing. It appears the marines, soldiers, sailors and airmen are great non-thinking. orders-following menial servants to this gang of privileged war-pig politicians! It's sad to see the real American spirit, the spirit of defying and overthrowing established government with guns and bayonets, appears to have died. We're no longer Americans, we are only consumers who're occasionally used as cannon-fodder.
Looking up the word 'assumption' we find, 'the act of taking for granted or supposing.' Can you imagine starting a war, a war that has claimed the lives of over 100,000 Iraqis and over 3,000 US military personnel and that costs over 2 BILLION tax dollars PER WEEK on assumptions??? I know I go out of my way to avoid making assumptions. The saying goes that if you assume anything, you're making an ASS out of YOU (U) and ME. Bush and the soulless kosher plutocrats in Congress are making an ass out of all the grunts and all the military people who've taken part in this deadly assumption, the living and the dead and wounded. They're making an ass out of all of the American people (especially those who are stupid enough to vote) and all people who take part in the Iraq war. As Americans, we should never forget the lesson George Washington taught us and the world, especially the British government: governments cannot win guerrilla wars if the guerrilla fighters are determined. It's impossible. If we had remembered that in the past, the Vietnam War never would have happened. We are losing the guerrilla war in Iraq, just as we lost it in Vietnam. When the politicians attempt to win yet more political favor with the powerful Israeli lobby and start wars on Israel's behalf in Iran and Syria, we will lose those, too. The only ones who will benefit are the politicians and Israel. Israel will have key enemies defeated, or at least thrown into chaos, at our expense and the politicians will carry on their profitable political careers as if nothing happened. They know the American people are too selfish to really rebel against the government. The most the American people will do to show opposition to a corrupt and deadly kosher regime is to vote one group of cowardly sell-outs out of office and vote another gang of cowardly sell-outs into office. They'll scream, 'Vote the bums out!' not being bright enough to realize that they're voting the same kind of criminals in! They probably justify it by thinking that it's easier and safer than starting a real revolution. Many people think we have the Second Amendment for people to go duck hunting or for people to have gun collections. This is not the case. We have the Second Amendment to make it possible for people to alter or abolish a corrupt government, just as America's founders did in 1776. As Thomas Jefferson wrote, 'The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in Government.' Jefferson also wrote, 'Where then is our republicanism to be found? Not in our constitution certainly, but merely in the spirit of our people.' Based on the passive response of the American people to the crimes our government is committing in our name, even when the plutocrats and media elites are openly making fun of us and our dead and wounded children for their own base amusement, I'd say there's not much spirit left in us. Jefferson warned Americans of his day as well as us that after the Revolution, people will not care about society and right and wrong. They will instead primarily care about money, and while they're chasing after the dollar, their country will be sold out from under them. He wrote: 'They (the people) will be forgotten, therefore, and their rights disregarded. They will forget themselves, but in the sole faculty of making money, and will never think of uniting to effect a due respect for their rights.' This has already happened. Anyone who honestly thinks the politicians have any respect whatsoever for us or our children has had his or her head plugged into their television for far too long!
