My friend from long ago, Thomas Foley, Former House Speaker, Dies at 84 –

There were many Sunday mornings that Congressman Foley was a guest on my program on the old KSPO. The remarkable thing is that, afterward, he would settle down in the break room and we would just talk. It might last hours. I learned so much about government and politics from Tom Foley and he was always considerate. He was very aware of division in the Democratic Party and reminded me that, if we lived in Europe, there would be no Democratic Party. Instead, there would be five different parties that might sometimes work together.

Lesser people tried to dream up some sort of accusations about a supposed lack of devotion to the Second Amendment. That is always a beautiful political stunt because there is just about nothing a regular person can do to satisfy a frothing gun nut. Lee Atwater launched the most despicable of attacks, although Atwater had the good grace to apologize for all his wrongdoing before entering eternity’s iron gates.

Folen was nothing like the current crop of headhunters. He was unfailingly polite and understood that not everybody was born with the silver spoon snugly tucked between the lips. I got to spend so much one-on-one time with Tom Foley and every minute was a gift. He has been sorely missed for a long time.

Open carry? You bet’cha!!!

It is a little surprising to see all of the hesitancy among legislative Republicans about proposed “open carry” laws. They get to Little Rock and otherwise rock solid God-fearing patriots just plain turn to mush. It must be the permissive lifestyle and the free-flowing Hooch served by painted women. Yes, the libertine poison of free thinking and tolerance is flowing freely!

Let me tell you right now that this left leaning, pinko-commie, Obama loving, welfare state upholding, high-speed rail loving, neo-socialist, former ACLU card-carrying, public transit supporter is real big on guns. I would have an arsenal automatic, semi-automatic, assault rifles along with grenades, bazookas and one or two tactical nuclear weapons, except that Marie will not let me buy even one.

But if Marie Lynch would allow her loving and faithful husband the rights accorded by the all ruling and sacred Second Amendment, I would be packing day and night. In church? Absolutely, and let me tell you right here that I do not attend one of those outfits that pours out grape juice. We Anglicans sip on real wine and I take special comfort i knowing that my brothers and sisters are well prepared, just in case we migth ahve some sort of problem. Just like the Good Book says, “praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.”

Hells bells! Have any of you ever watched Gunsmoke? Everybody’s packing there and what could possibly go wrong? Yes, Miss Kitty had a few little rumbles down at the Long Branch, but we should just think of that as another way of straightening out the gene pool. An armed society is a good orderly and respectful society. I’d just like to see some pesky outsider pull into one of my assigned condo parking places without asking first. BOOM! Blow ’em away! End of problem  Magazine salesman shows up at the front door, same thing. Life is good.

Of course, not everybody has my innate common sense and cool headed judgment. Passing an open carry law will not solve every social ill, but it’s a start.

Texas Judge Preparing For ‘Civil War’ If Obama Re-Elected…

Judge Tom Head (credit: Lubbock County)

(CBS) – A Texas leader is warning of what he calls a ‘civil war’ and possible invasion of United Nations troops if President Barack Obama is re-elected.

Lubbock County Judge Tom Head is convinced that Mr. Obama winning a second term would lead to a revolt by the American people and he’s is pushing a tax increase for the district attorney’s office and the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office. He says the money is needed to “beef up” it’s resources in case President Obama wins the November election.

In the event of civil unrest Judge Head said he’s concerned the President would hand over sovereignty of the United States to the U.N. and that the American public would react violently.

“He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the U.S. to the United Nations, what’s going to happen when that happens?” Judge Head told FOX 34 in Lubbock.

Ah, those Tea Party people! How do they always get it wrong? Of course Obama plans to destroy America. Oh what fun it would be to bulldoze the infrastructure, the comforts, the services, and institutions! Yes, that’s what I want. Let me live in an apocalyptic moonscape. Who needs running water? But the Tea Party people cannot see the bitter truth before their very eyes. How sweet and easy it would be to turn America over to the marshmallow soft sissies of the United Nations. Oh, yeah! I want to see those boys in blue helmets roll into beautiful downtown Tupelo! They would be mocked to scorn.

Yes, Obama will hand the country over to his steely eyed masters of doom and destruction – the Martians. It is no coincidence that NASA (unwitting puppets of intergalactic oppression) recently presented the fabricated story of a so-called expedition to Mars. How sad the Tea Party geniuses have missed the true intention of the dreaded left. They must have been taking some classes in constitutional law or care and maintenance of automatic weapons.

Can’t wait for the new regime! Klaatu barada nikto!
