The letter below was published on Jan 10, 2013 in The Newtown Bee, the local paper of Newtown, CT, where the Dec. 14, 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre occurred.

Elected Officials Are Fundamentally Dishonest1/10/2013

To the Editor:

This letter was forwarded to Barack Obama, John Boehner, Chris Murphy, Dick Blumenthal, Elizabeth Esty, and Harry Reid

I live in Sandy Hook, CT. My family and close friends weren’t harmed on December 14. That day impacted 26 families with an indescribable, staggering pain and anguish. For most of Sandy Hook, it merely affected us with an inescapable intensity of sadness and grief.

Gun control has long been a focus of many in this country. Though I’m not knowledgeable of all the nuances of the Second Amendment, based on the Founding Fathers’ circumstances, it had far more to do with enabling the citizenry to protect themselves against tyrannical government than against local psychopaths. It is about providing a balanced firepower so when King George’s successor came knocking on your door, you could fight back. Government today is no less inclined to abuse its authority than it was then. Based on the absurd and ongoing power grab that is present day Washington, it’s as threatening as ever.

That so many of you view the NRA with its resistance to further restrictions on firearms as intransigent lunatics has far more to do with how you conduct yourselves in office than it does with the NRA’s actions.

You in public office are fundamentally dishonest people. You lead lives of deception at every turn, structuring your lives as comfortably as you can while governing with an indifference and arrogance that is absolutely maddening. When the country is reeling from financial disaster, you waste a trillion dollars on a health care bill we can’t afford and you’ve never read. You claim it’s critical because health care costs are killing this country… no they’re not, you are! You are killing this country. You endorse the ongoing slaughter of millions of unborn children and whine when terrorists are water boarded. You can’t lecture us right in Newtown High School about not doing enough to keep our children safe, while simultaneously slaughtering the unborn. You fabricate the intense, media laden drama of the fiscal cliff and lack the courage to do anything about truly reforming the obscene gluttony of government. You know you’ll be out of office before the bill comes due… you don’t care and have no integrity nor honor.

You lie whenever and wherever you need to to move forth your agenda. Were you able, you would purge the US of guns… every last gun in the country, if you could. So please forgive Wayne LaPierre and those of us who don’t trust you as far as we can spit. You’re a dishonest lot, motivated by a distorted worldview. If mass murder prevention were truly your goal, you would welcome armed security wherever needed. It is outrageous that we protect our money with far more firepower than we protect our children.

I have never owned a gun, nor wanted to as intensely as right now. You’ll stop restricting guns when only you have them.

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy: If guns “aren’t in the stores, they can’t be bought”

Yeah, just like how cocaine isn’t sold in stores and it can’t be bought.

How smart are the voters that elected her? And they poke fun at us because of Franken?

Amy and Al…two fools whom forgot the Constitution they swore to protect..

Amy Klobuchar & Al Franken are both co-sponsors to the most restrictive gun legislation in American history. But don’t take my word for it, just look at the title of the Bill that bears their names.

Push back from the NRA..

A nice post about ‘numbers’ of hunters compared to overall gun owners numbers..13.7 million hunters. Folks they know how to use them, shoo them and kill with them. Also how to hunt..

Go read it..Is interesting little but of data to chew on and think about, especially those whom want our guns. Remember 13.7 million whom hunt and how many millions are really adept at stalking animals. So when we disappear into the woods and you come a looking for us…Think about that…I knwo a few areas where a person could disappear and make life really miserable for anyone seeking them..

Now add all the ‘gun owners’ who don’t hunt. But are adept at shooting, shoot often..

Just saying…

UPDATE: Xubuntu being installed on TC1000 now…Whilst wandering about…found this!!!  An ALl-in-One Ubuntu box??? Slick..

So I am playing with Linux, an old laptop (Compaq tc1000 tablet) and have Ubuntu on it…am searching for something a bit slicker and faster…Ubuntu runs fine on the desktop, but seems a bit (like damn slow!) laggardly on this old tablet….

Did venture out to fill bird feeders…and see I have 5 plump squirrels enjoying right now….Hmmm…new pellet gun..no one around…Squirrel Stew??

Do have to take the Jak for a walk…may have to dig the long johns out for that!!

Free Books..

I love to read and I have a CRUZ eReader and my smart phone which both have Kindle for Android.
For ebooks I watch..As does MBWITW as she has a Kindle I gave her last year for her birthday, over which the boyz and I debated as she is somewhat adverse to new technology and we were not sure how she would receive it. Well she loves it and takes it many places with her.

But these are good sites to check and I have them both in my Google Feed Reader…
