Rep. Louie and the Fear Propagators ...

by: Les Carpenter Rational Nation USA Lib erty -vs- Tyr anny Louie Gohmert - One Scary Idiot As it goes Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) is one slightly unbalanced and therefore rather disturbing individual. His "way out in left field" claim that President Obama's administration has Muslim Brotherhood members is, IMNHO opinion based on one of two things. The fact "good ole Louie" is incapable of accepting we have a mixed race President, or he is simply stirring the pot of fear. Much like Senator McCarthy did in a bygone era. In either case he is doing a great disservice to the American public. As a fiscally conservative social Libertarian I challenge the fear mongering right to provide some significant evidence in support of the delusions they would have us all accept as factual reality. TPM - Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) went after the Obama administration's handling of the Boston Marathon bombing investigation in a radio interview Thursday -- and alon

Fear... Will it Reasult in the Eventual Loss of Liberty?

(Photo John Moore/Getty Images) In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday the country’s interpretation of the Constitution will “have to change” to allow for greater security to stave off future attacks. “The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry,” Mr. Bloomberg said during a press conference in Midtown. “But we live in a complex word where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.” Mr. Bloomberg, who has come under fire for the N.Y.P.D.’s monitoring of Muslim communities and

The Motivation... ?

by: Les Carpenter Rational Nation USA Lib erty -vs- Tyr anny As information surfaces on the possible motivation of the Boston Marathon Bombers and the potential connection to Muslim terrorist organizations it is wise to consider how we best handle the issue of foreign immigration and the method to control it. Our primary interest is this day and age of madness is how to protect the citizens of these United States of America. Terror is a societal issue of the 21st century and determining how to address the deadly threat it presents civilized society must be of utmost importance. Now is NOT the time for misguided political correctness. York York Times - WASHINGTON — With one suspect dead and the other captured and lying grievously wounded in a hospital, the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings turned on Saturday to questions about the men’s motives, and to the significance of an overseas trip one of them took last year. Federal investigators are hurrying to revie

The Next Hurdle for the Obama Administration...

by: Les Carpenter Rational Nation USA Lib erty -vs- Tyr anny Boston firefighter James Plourde carries an injured girl away from the scene after a bombing near the finish line of the Boston Marathon in Boston. (AP Photo/MetroWest Daily News, Ken McGagh) Giving thought to the Boston Marathon bombing and potential political consequences for the current administration the following article from THE HILL points up a very valid concern for the Obama team and far left Libertarians. Just what is the potential impact on the immigration issue. Certainly a valid concern in these times of uncertainty and terrorist madness. THE HILL - The Boston Marathon terrorist attack allegedly hatched by two brothers from Chechnya is threatening to disrupt President Obama’s second-term agenda. Opponents of immigration reform — the most promising priority of Obama’s second term remaining after the defeat of gun control — are already using the attack to try to slow progress on a bipartisan Senate

The Beckman Speaketh...

by: Les Carpenter Rational Nation USA Lib erty -vs- Tyr anny As we here from the Beckman... From RIGHT WING WATCH : Near the end of today's radio broadcast , Glenn Beck declared that the cover-up of the Saudi link to the Boston Marathon bombing makes this the second most important thing (behind 9/11) that he has ever covered in his broadcasting career. And depending on how the media and the government responds in the coming days, it just might be the most important thing he's ever covered because the response "will either save our country or we will be done." Beck then went on to send a semi-coded message to those in the upper level of the government warning that they had better come clean about this Saudi national because The Blaze has information that reveals that he "is a very bad, bad, bad man" which will be revealed on Monday. "I don't bluff," Beck stated , "I make promises. The truth matters. I've had enough of wh

Random Thoughts

by: Les Carpenter Rational Nation USA Lib erty -vs- Tyr anny A iconic American city under lock down. Images reminiscent of the Twilight Zone rushing in. Results of terror on display. Civilization itself on the brink. Respect for the individual and the natural rights associated with with human existence lost. Respect for human life seemingly an afterthought. Right -vs- left and the need for affirmation more important than solving problems.Ideology reigns supreme. Firearm violence, gay rights, reproductive rights, religious doctrine -vs - rational secularism, hyperbole over truth and logic. Mysticism crowding out science and reason. Background checks and the insanity of the NRA. Forms of tyranny. On and on it goes. A nation stands lost as to the cause. As the lights slowly dim. Perhaps there is hope. Time running out... Is the above to be our future? Sometimes one cannot help but wonder.

ATF Revokes Federal Firearm License Without Giving Cause for Its Action...

by: Les Carpenter Rational Nation U S A Libe rty -vs- Tyr anny Reuters - The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms said on Friday it had revoked the federal license of a Connecticut gun retailer that sold a weapon to the mother of Adam Lanza, who killed 26 people at an elementary school in December. The agency on December 20 revoked the license of Riverview Gun Sales in East Windsor, Connecticut, ATF spokeswoman Debora Seifert said. The revocation was reported in The Journal News, of Westchester County, New York, on Friday. "We did revoke their federal firearms license," she said. The agency did not publicly disclose a reason for the closure. A woman who answered the telephone at Riverview on Friday, and did not give her name, confirmed the store had sold a weapon to Lanza's mother, Nancy, and that its license had been revoked. She declined further comment. Nancy Lanza was her son's first victim in the December 14 attack. He shot her in their fa

The President Catches Hell for Speaking the Truth... Appologizes

by: Les Carpenter Rational Nation U S A Libe rty -vs- Tyra nny There seems to be a food fight over just who is the best looking Attorney General in these United States of America. For the opposition view point you can find it here . Kamala Harris Pam Bondi The Winner Is... Drum roll............................ Kamala Harris by a Landslide! I for one Mr. President understand. But as you found out... in this day and age it just ain't politically correct to use such flattering language when talking about a beautiful, intelligent, and accomplished women. Via: Memeorandum

President Obama Acting as a President and the Nation's CEO Should...

by: Les Carpenter Rational Nation U S A Libe rty - vs- Tyra nny President Obama acting like a true leader and Chief Executive Officer of the United States of America should act. Infuriating the progressive wing of his party he has signaled his willingness to address Social Security and Medicare cuts. The New York Times - President Obama next week will take the political risk of formally proposing cuts to Social Security and Medicare in his annual budget in an effort to demonstrate his willingness to compromise with Republicans and revive prospects for a long-term deficit-reduction deal, administration officials say. In a significant shift in fiscal strategy, Mr. Obama on Wednesday will send a budget plan to Capitol Hill that departs from the usual presidential wish list that Republicans typically declare dead on arrival. Instead it will embody the final compromise offer that he made to Speaker John A. Boehner late last year, before Mr. Boehner abandoned negotiations

Making Sense Objectively of the Absurd...

by: Les Carpenter Rational Nation USA Libe rty -vs- Tyra nny Everywhere in today's liberal, or progressive lexicon we hear of the evils inherent in Objectivism, the philosophy of Ayn Rand. Indeed the general consensus, or so it seems to this individual, is that Ayn Rand herself was an evil person. So, perhaps some object liberal, or progressive can explain the evil in the following...

I'd Like To Think So...

by: Les Carpenter Rational Nation USA Liberty -vs- Tyranny Chris Pizzello/Associated Press Patti Davis in 2004.  She says her father would have supported same-sex marriage. None of us know for certain whether President Ronald Wilson Reagan would have supported marriage equality. In the world of politics public opinion is often the prime mover of such things. It shouldn't be. I would like to believe Patti Davis is right. If conservatives accept her belief that her father would have supported marriage equality perhaps it will be easier for them to accept that doing so is, in fact, the right thing to do. For those who truly respect the rights of all to live their life in such a way as to secure their own happiness, which is to embrace individual liberty, the acceptance of marriage equality should be a no brainier. Note: The preceding reference to individual liberty is not meant to imply anything goes without respect to civil society and the r

Socon rEpublicans Proving Yet Again...

by: Les Carpenter Rational Nation USA Liberty -vs- Tyranny Call me stupid if you like. But the looney tune (IMNHO) Georgia "top rEpublican" Sue Everhart, chairwoman of the Georgia Republican Party lives in a totally different reality than any sane rational person. But then again stepping back and thinking about it... Sane and rational is NOT something the present day rEpublican party is into. Fear mongering, yes. Power, yes. Control of the lives of the individual, yes. This inanity from what's her name? Oh yeah, Sue Everhart is the final straw for this independent Classical Liberal and Objectivist who REFUSES to be lead around by ignorant and clueless collectivists. Which by the way folks is something this Classical Liberal, Objectivist, and fiercely individualistic liberty loving person has grown to recognize is precisely what identifies the rEpublican party as well as the current state of conservatism. Here then is the article that elicited my ire. Willfu
