Dancing in the right place…

I am going to preface this by saying it is incredibly obvious that some people haven’t seen the movie Footloose.

In a nation where our government continually shoves “freedom” down our throat, this is what happens.

Earlier yesterday Adam Kokesh and a number of others were detained when they chose to dance at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial…hell what am I saying…”detained” isn’t even adequate. At one point Kokesh was body slammed and choked. Another guy was forcibly pulled away from his wife while embraced with her.

So what was the right thing to do? Protest of course. Some people may mistakenly think this demonstration wasn’t necessary, but after seeing the result…I think it was absolutely necessary.

How many times does their local PD have to waste manpower because a law is simply not protecting the people. Laws restricting our freedoms should be taken seriously, but this? Seriously? THEY WERE DANCING!!!! I just have to say if I meet Mr. Kokesh, I’m buying him a drink. No one deserves to be handled like that when they aren’t presenting themselves as a danger to anyone. I am sure some local attorneys are going to have a field day with this because Kokesh apparently is running for office…and probably just pulled in a TON of votes, as the video above has gone viral.

Cheers People, and don’t ever let anyone tell you you can’t dance. 😉

How to lose a vote. Don’t EVER turn your back on Hillary Clinton…

On February 15, Hillary Clinton gave a speech touting American disdain for other governments’ censorship and restriction of free speech, while at the same time…a peaceful demonstration by a long-time U.S. veteran (Ray McGovern) was met with intolerance and that same restriction on our own soil.

The poor ol’ guy. All he did was stand up and turn his back on Clinton while she was speaking.

Here’s the video, the guy didn’t even say anything until it was evident that they weren’t going to let him stay.

What the hell?!

Look, I understand the need for security. But if everyone was on their game, they should have known there was a protester in the crowd…not only this, but the guy is a vet! This wasn’t just treading on our free speech…this was jumping up and down on it and then spitting in the eye of those that risk their lives for the name of.

Whoops. I was going to say freedom…but apparently that’s only available to people that aren’t directing that at our government. Over the last few weeks our own governments actions, in conjunction with that of a number of private firms are getting outed for only obeying the law when it suits them and when their own reputation isn’t at stake. By this same demonstration of physical censorship…we brand our own country as committing the very same deplorable freedom of speech violations Secretary Clinton was denouncing in her speech while they dragged him away. lame, very lame.

…every year, it seems like the pickins on politicians that aren’t hypocrites gets down to searching for needles in a haystack. I was already tired of Republicans years before Bush Jr. was done…seems the Dems are just out to make my opinion unilateral. Luckily I still know of a few decent people I’d vote for (all Libertarians – go figure)…it’s just too bad how corrupting the government is.

-Stay safe, and for our future’s sake, vote smart people.

Making the right point…with a gun.

Most of my readers already know, I may not have been born in Texas. But I feel like I was born to live here.

Not many people outside the state understand the responsibility and freedom inherent in living here and supporting the state. Many people not altogether mistakenly consider us a bunch of gun-toting loons bent on revolution.

The reality of it is half-truths are closer than the jokes.

I am a huge supporter of the Second Amendment. That said, I think registering guns to owners is essential, and making them illegal in the hands of criminals just the same.

What I don’t understand is under what premise does gun control past what is described above find solid ground?

A friend of mine linked this in FB tonight and I had to share it. It’s spot-on accurate and I fully support the point she makes…and most importantly her last statement.
