TEN REALLY GOOD REASONS TO BAN GUNS - HUMOR

AND YOU SAY WE NEED SOCIALIZED MEDICINE?

 

 

 

 

THE BILL OF NO RIGHTS


We, the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid any more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our descendants, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional, and other proponents of socialism and or authoritarianism. 

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that many people are confused by the Bill of Rights and apparently require a Bill of No Rights.

ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.

ARTICLE II: You do not have the right to never be offended. This country was based upon freedom, and that means freedom for everyone-not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc., but the world is full of dolts, and probably always will be.

ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free of harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful; do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.

ARTICLE IV: You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who will achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.

ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to free healthcare, regardless of what Hillary thinks. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we're just not interested in public heath care.

ARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.

ARTICLE VII: You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don't be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you won't have the right to big screen color TV or life of leisure.

ARTICLE VIII: You don't have the right to demand that our children risk their lives in foreign wars to soothe your aching conscience. We hate oppressive governments and won't lift a finger to stop you from going to fight if you'd like. However, we do not enjoy parenting the entire world and do not want to spend so much of our time battling each and every little tyrant with a military uniform and a funny hat.

ARTICLE IX: You don't have the right to a job. All of us want all of you to have one, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.

 

 

 

 

 

THE VICTIM GETS THE MURDER CHARGE?  WHAT ABOUT THE PERPETRATOR WITH 47 ARRESTS?

We now take you to the Bronx, New York.  54-year-old Victor Vicenty's car was vandalized last week.  So he sat up on Monday night with binoculars and a rifle nearby, waiting for the vandal to come back.

At 2 a.m., Vicenty spotted a man trying to break into his car.  He grabbed the rifle, ran down from his third-floor apartment, and fired six shots.  The burglar is cooling on a slab.

As it turns out, the dead perpetrator was 41-year-old Kevin Bethea, a drug addict who was notorious for breaking into cars.  His rap sheet included 47 (yes, forty-seven) arrests for petty crimes!  So you can bet there weren't many neighbors mourning Kevin Bethea.

Victor Vicenty has been charged with second-degree murder, reckless endangerment, and criminal possession of an unlicensed rifle.  His neighbors have vowed to be character witnesses for him at his trial.

Is there anyone else out there who thinks Victor Vicenty deserves a medal for removing Kevin Bethea from the gene pool?  And what is wrong with defending property?  That car represents a part of Vicenty's life.  He spent a part of his life working to earn the money to pay for that car.  Why shouldn't he be allowed to use force to protect it from burglars?

The streets are a little safer, thanks to Victor Vicenty.  It's a shame that the powers that be in N.Y. don't see it that way.  Put me on the jury.

 

 

 

 


LAZY IRS WORKERS

So...what do IRS workers do with their Internet access at work?  They use it to visit sex sites, gamble, trade stocks, participate in chat rooms, and do other non-work-related things.

That's according to the Treasury Department's deputy inspector general, Pamela Gardiner.  She and her staff looked at the Internet usage of more than 16,000 IRS employees and found that they spent more than half of their time online doing personal business.

Bottom line: IRS employees are goofing off...on YOUR dime.  That's your taxpayer money that pays for those computer terminals, the Internet access, and the chairs these IRS workers sit their butts on while they give the country poor customer service.  Remember, 37 percent of taxpayers who called the IRS for information during this year's tax filing season didn't get their calls answered, and those who did get a response got wrong answers 47 percent of the time.

Add one more item to the list of reasons why we should get rid of the IRS.

 

 

  

NO QUICK FIX FROM BUSH?

We hear this morning that President Bush is not going to propose any “quick fixes” to the problem of steadily increasing gas prices.  He’s looking to long-term solutions from a sustainable national energy policy.

What?  No quick fixes?  What is Bush thinking?  Doesn’t he know that the people of this country expect the Imperial Federal Government to step in with a solution – a quick fix – to each and every problem that rises up to smite us in our daily lives?  That’s what government is for!  To solve our problems!  We’re supposed to be able to live our lives without ever having to address any severe problems without the help of our wonderful friends in government.

God forbid Americans should have to adjust their spending and driving to deal with high gasoline prices!  Cut back on my cell phone usage to save money for gas? Are you nuts!  Combine trips?  Why should I be inconvenienced when government should be solving the problem?

Bush, of course, has it right.  The federal government doesn’t exist to step in every time an inconvenience lands on America’s doorstep. 

There is supposed to be some degree of self-sufficiency in the American spirit.  Hopefully it isn’t completely dead.

 

 

 

 

Ten Really Good Reasons to Ban Guns By Bruce Gold

Humor


  1. Guns are used in self-defense over 2 million times a year.  However, this makes the attempted crime a "non-event," which necessarily complicates the Police investigation.  Without civilian ownership of guns, these Police investigations would not have been compromised. Civilians should leave crime prevention to the Police who are properly equipped to investigate following the crime's completion.
  2. Some .004 % (4/1000 of 1%) of guns are used in crime each year.  This is way too high.  All guns should be banned
  3. Guns are unnecessary.  In 98% of civilian gun Defenses, no shot is Fired.  If you are not going to fire a shot, you clearly don't need a gun.  This proves that the guns are unnecessary.  Banning guns will prevent these unnecessary defenses.
  4. Guns cause criminal migration.  In tough gun law Washington   [D.C.], violent crime rates are very high.  This high crime rate is caused by the migration of criminals from gun havens like Virginia.  This migration is caused by the criminal's cowardly avoidance of armed householders and concealed carry civilians.  This criminal migration is detrimental to helpless unarmed citizens in no gun areas and must be stopped.  Guns should be banned everywhere.
  5. Inner city gangs and drug dealers commit most gun crimes.  These relatively small and geographically restricted groups consistently commit the majority of gun crimes, which usually peak as turf wars erupt over Drug War changes.  The best way to prevent this is by denying guns to all law abiding people everywhere.
  6. No woman needs to protect herself from rape, assault or murder.  The Police will protect them by investigating the crime after the fact.  Remember, Police paperwork is all the protection anyone really needs.
  7. Gun owners are disrespectful of authority.  Good citizens should completely rely on the authorities.  A failure to do so is an invariable sign of improper and overly independent attitudes.  Failure to completely and absolutely trust and depend on the authorities is excessive democracy and sends a bad message to children.
  8. Guns owners engaging in self-defense are taking the law into their own hands.   This is wrong.  Only the Police and Criminals have the right to take the law into their own hands.  It should be kept out of the hands of citizens.
  9. Children and young people should remain ignorant about guns.  Real guns and real gun knowledge dissipates the fantasies created by violent video games and TV. Ignorance once lost, can never be restored and needs to be protected. Not to mention the lost sales of all the violent movies, TV shows, video games, etc!
  10. Guns reduce people's reliance on the Police and Government. This fosters a mistaken belief in "rights." No person has the right to question authority.  No person should be less then 100% dependent on authority.  This is fundamental to social order.  Banning guns will help to establish the Order the authorities want.   This is good.

 

 

 

 

AND YOU SAY WE NEED SOCIALIZED MEDICINE?

Government regulations are putting a strain on the medical profession.

A survey conducted by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons shows that medical doctors nationwide are becoming disillusioned and disenfranchised, thanks to more and more regulatory burdens placed on them by the Imperial Federal Government.

Look at some of the poll's findings:

--66.2 percent of doctors said they will "retire from active patient care at a younger age than they would have considered five years ago" because of "increased government interference in the practice of medicine."

--56 percent of doctors said decreased fees were a reason.

-64 percent cited "decreased control" over medical practices" as a reason to retire early.

--64 percent said increased bureaucracy from Medicare was a reason.

--61 percent said they were increasingly fearful of federal prosecution or unwarranted investigation as the reason they were considering early retirement.

Does this sound like an industry that needs more government regulation?  Do we really need socialized medicine in this country if doctors already feel overburdened by the system?

Look to our neighbors to the north if you want to see the reality of socialized medicine.  Emergency rooms nationwide are overcrowded.  Patients have died waiting for basic procedures we Americans take for granted.  According to author David Gratzer, who wrote a book on Canada's failing health care system:

--The average American waits no more than 10 days for radiation therapy.  The average Canadian waits four times as long.

--In the U.S., you can get a MRI scan in about four days.  In Canada, you'll wait 150.

--The life expectancy for Canadians has actually decreased since 1978.  Women can expect to live 2.3 years less, and men 0.4 years less.  Life expectancies in other parts of the industrialized world have been increasing steadily over the same period. 

--Budget cuts by the Canadian government show little improvement.  Under nationalized health care, prices have jumped 33 percent in this decade alone. 

--Canadian Medicare takes 21 cents out of every payroll dollar.

Is this what we need in America?  Of course it is not.  But that won't stop people like Hitlary from trying to cram it down our throats.
