Interesting article:

Caroline Glick, Senior Contributing Editor of the Jerusalem Post said the Israeli people consider President Obama "a hostile president overall," on "Mornings on the Mall" on WMAL-FM in Washington DC. Appearing with Brian Wilson and myself Wednesday morning, Glick said the Israeli people "can't figure out what he's doing here," when asked about the mood in Jerusalem as the President's plane touched down for the first time in his presidency.

"Essentially his goal is to empower the un-electable, incredibly radical left in Israel to put pressure on the Israeli government for whatever concessions he wants it to make to the PLO," said Glick in evaluating the reasons why Obama will be meeting with university students and members of the Palestinian Government during his visit.

When asked about how the installment of Chuck Hagel as the Secretary of Defense was received by the Israeli people, Glick said, "It's a hostile

If they "ban" a weapon that I already own, will I have to turn it in?

Wow, whar a surprise LaPeirre and Cornyn oppose a treaty dealing with the arms trade. Those two half-wits would see 2nd amendment issues in a jaywalking ordinance.

Read rest at ****thenewamerican.c o m During that speech, LaPierre did not state opposition to the U.S. ratification of any UN arms treaty that does not address civilian firearms ownership. Yet, information posted on the NRA-ILA website demonstrates the danger of U.S. recognition of “international law.” For example:

Can the President bypass the ratification process?

Strictly speaking, no. But an anti-gun administration could still try to use the treaty to impose gun control in the U.S.

Even if the Senate defeats any effort to ratify the treaty, anti-gun activists in the administration could argue that, under customary international law, the U.S. must implement the treaty's restrictions lest we violate its "object and purpose."

This tactic has been used before. For example, the United States has never ratified the U.N. Law of the Sea treaty, but treats parts of that treaty as binding on the U.S.

The Obama administration could

Front door slammed shut, Kerry going in the backdoor. Beware!

A March 15 report in The Hill quoted a statement from Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) in opposition to the ATT. “The United Nations’s Arms Trade Treaty contains unnecessarily harsh treatment of civilian-owned small arms, and I urge President Obama to reverse course and block any further negotiations,” Cornyn said on March 15. “Not only would it violate Texans’ Second Amendment rights, including the right to self-defense, it also raises U.S. sovereignty and national security concerns.”

Reports from Reuters and Fox News noted that the National Rifle Association has warned that the treaty would undermine the right to bear arms and that the NRA will fight hard to prevent ratification if the Obama administration supports the treaty.

The text of a speech delivered by the NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre at last July’s UN Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty is posted on the NRA-ILA website.

This will be easier to read..

Description of democrat party:

Pro big government & control

Pro entitlement

Discourage success & accomplishment

Discourage hard work and earning lots of money.

Pro higher taxes Anti- 2nd amendment & guns

Anti- fossil fuel energy

Pro high gasoline prices

Reward failure

Reward promiscuity

Reward fornication

anti-Christian values

Pro-abortion

anti-founding father principles

anti-traditional American values Argue if you will, but the nation is on the decline both morally & economically.

It is clear that the problem with America is not external, it is internal. The sheeple are simply too stupid to be able to connect the dots.

Im not in favor of gun control. I also did not wait in line at Cabella's to stock up-can only shoot one. The panic of what might happen shot sales up and over pricing. When no control goes through, the value will plummet. The sales of guns should have boost the economy and created jobs.
