I had an interesting business trip this past week. I had to fly to Orlando for a trade show. Normally I do not rent a car as I try to make arrangements so I can either take a shared ride van or cab to the hotels and then try to walk to the convention centers. I do this mainly to try to save money and hassles. This time was no different.
After the end of the second day of the show, I had one of my customers give me a ride as I took them out to dinner. We got talking about the parking situation at the Orange County Convention Center. They were upset that they had to pay $15.00 for parking. At first I wondered what their problem was. Then they revealed why the were upset.
They relayed the story that when they pulled in line to park in the rear parking lot of the convention center, they were asked what show they were attending. They replied they were their for the ISS (Imprinted Sportswear Show). They found out later (and told the parking lot attendant the next day, they were there for the Hispanic Business Exposition. The parking fee for attending a special interest or “minority” group show Continue reading Racism Doesn’t Really Exist – As Long as You are White
Tom Zawistowski, Candidate for Ohio Republican Party Chairman, made a statement today concerning news reports about his opponent’s delinquent taxes. Zawistowski said “I received a call from a reporter at the Dayton Daily news asking if I had any comment on a story they were working on concerning Mr. Borges’ delinquent taxes. That is the first I had heard of the issue, but I can say that literally within hours of announcing my candidacy for Chairman on April 2nd, I started to receive calls and emails from people I do not know telling me things that attacked Mr. Borges’s reputation. I told each of those people that I am not interested in their information. In my view, this race is not about Mr. Borges, it is about the future of the Ohio Republican Party. I am running because I am concerned about our Ohio Republican Party and I believe that I am uniquely qualified to address those concerns. I can unify our coalition partners, I can bring new members into the party and I can build the Ohio Republican Party into the powerhouse it should be. I am unveiling to the Republican State Central Committee a very exciting vision for the future of the Ohio Republican party. I am asking the Committee to vote for me because of my ideas, my vision, and my leadership abilities and I believe that they will ultimately do so.”
Zawistowski is the CEO of TRZ Communication, the President of the We the People Convention, the Executive Director of the Portage County TEA Party and the recent Past President of the Ohio Liberty Coalition. He has been running as the candidate that is “uniquely qualified” to unify the Republican Party. Zawistowski believes that he can return Social Conservatives to the Party, while keeping the fiscal conservatives and grassroots groups from leaving the party. Joining them with the core moderate Republicans and then reaching out to Independents, including minorities, to grow the party base.
All we could say is, “this is scary”. People will sign anything. Watch this video on a “mock” petition to take away guns from right wing extremist Tea Party members while leaving illegal guns on the streets.
There’s not much explaining to do on this one expect that it would make law abiding citizens criminals. You can see the actual law on the Ohio Legislative site at this link.
Sec. 2923.171. states that “No person shall knowingly possess or acquire any “assault weapon.”. If enacted and passed into law, this would make hundreds of thousands of Ohio citizens immediate criminals. It would be a felony of the 5th degree to even posses such a firearm.
This is not about assault weapons but part of a total deconstruction of the Constitution. Yes, that may sound alarmist, but consider the ramifications.
What if they tell you it from this point forward you can no longer own an SUV as they are deemed to dangerous? Sound outrageous?
Look at what Obamacare is bringing and tell me we knew everything about that before it became law….

Alex Jones, who started the WhiteHouse.gov petition to deport Piers for his support in subverting the US Constitution, confronted Morgan on his own CNN show. See the video below for more statistics to back up Alex Jones statements. I have a feeling this is just the tipping point for this issue and the people are going to stand united on this against President Obama, Congress, and those who would intend to restrict our Constitutional rights.
This makes a lot of sense… but when does logic and facts make for good agendas? All the data is taken directly from the FBI government website and Britain’s Home Office website. This is NOT what most media outlets are reporting. Why?
At Harold ISD in Texas, they have allowed teachers to conceal and carry. David Thweatt logically spells out why they are allowing teachers to carry weapons on their campus. The reasoning? They are 30 minutes from law enforcement and their teachers are the first line of defense. And there are more than just one teacher carrying. The reasoning here is if only a security guard has a gun and he is killed, everyone else is dead. If one teacher is incapacitated, there are multiple others who can protect the children.
In addition, they point out that most shooters that commit these types of aggression do it in “gun free zones”.
The video is about 15 minutes long, but the reasoning for allowing this in the face of national scrutiny is extremely logical. It seems though on a national scale, logic is trumped by feelings and emotion.
In another attempt at invasion of privacy, our House of Representatives is looking to collect, store, and use DNA collected from people who have been arrested. You can read the entire H.R. 6014 bill at the House of Representatives website.
In the aftermath of the horrendous events last week at the elementary school in Connecticut, it has not taken long for the rally cry to be voiced.
President Obama asked the question over the weekend that “Are we prepared that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?”.
Translation: If America continues to allow the freedom to own firearms that our children will continue to be killed in elementary schools and this must end. Not the killings, but the ownership of firearms and then all killings will cease.
In other words, the current administration and gun control groups are already exploiting this situation to further advance their agenda which is a vile hatred against guns, gun owners and the freedom this country allows. You should not have either freedom to own guns because it wreaks havoc on the children – and you don’t hate the children do you?
This is easily summed up by Benjamin Franklin. We can argue back and forth all the pro gun/anti-gun philosophies. However, Ben Franklin said ”He who would trade liberty for some temporary security, deserves neither liberty nor security.”
I believe that if you check history (See Nazi Germany and Hitler) that gun control was the first step in a much larger massacre committed by those wishing to secure freedom for their people.
Don’t believe that guns are the issue. It is a moral and spiritual deficit issue we face in this country. Nothing more, nothing less. And nothing to do with guns.
