Define ‘Doom’



A letter writer accuses the Tea Party of unnecessarily “warning of impending doom” caused by the administration of President Obama (Roundup, Feb. 18). He claims he is free because he can attend any one of more than 30 different churches and worship as he pleases. That’s true, so long as the church does not preach adherence to the U.S. Con­stitution, upon pain of losing its tax-exempt status.

He claims he can state his opinions in public as much as he pleases. That’s true, as long as he doesn’t offend Muslims, or gays, or blacks, or post an Internet picture on a college campus expressing displeasure over midterm exams, or suggest that a certain murderous tyrant should be arrested, prosecuted, convicted, and lined up and shot.

He claims he can travel anywhere he chooses at any time he chooses. That’s true, as long as he doesn’t fly or if he does, he doesn’t have a lapel pin in the shape of a pistol, doesn’t have a fingernail file or penknife, doesn’t have a toy monkey with a 2-inch toy pistol in its hand, etc. And now the TSA is

conducting “grope-a-dope” of men, women, the elderly, infirm, and even infants at some bus and train stations. And shall we ignore the DUI and illegal immigrant checkpoints, conducted without probable cause of wrongdoing, if we travel by car?

He owns a gun and isn’t afraid it will be taken from him by the government, in spite of the U.S. Senate’s attempted passage of a bill a very few months ago that would have outlawed virtually every semi-auto firearm in the nation, and in spite of his Dear Leader’s signature on the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty that will outlaw every privately-owned firearm in the country if it is ratified by the Senate.

He claims the country is still “mostly” run by people who have been elected, not dictated. That’s true, except for those states where George Soros has said, on network television, that “we own the voting machines.”

He notes that this president has issued far fewer Administrative (Executive) Orders than any president in recent times. That’s true, except that at least 29 of those Executive Orders have involved arbitrary changes to the Obamacare legislation he has no authority to make.

He claims his grandchildren can pray in their public schools, yet children have been prohibited from doing so at many public schools across the nation, upon pain of expulsion.

And need I mention the unwarranted IRS attention paid to pro-Constitution Tea Party groups, and anyone who criticizes Dear Leader on network television, such as neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson?

Well said, Don, very well said. And there are even worse things in our society than what you mentioned, that should scare the crap out of every true American.

Yep Tom has a quote for everything, even fear.

"Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear." Thomas Jefferson

It appears that in in the White House, all the lights are on, but no one is at home.

Oh, they are there all right, but they are not "at home." They don't belong there. Their presence there is the result of the most massive con-game the world has ever suffered, and there have been many. There remains only one approach that will save our nation from certain descent into a Soviet-style cesspool of tyranny and oppression, and even that will likely not prevent a knock-down drag-out fight: That is to adopt the position, and present it firmly and implacably and without quarter to every legislative, executive, and judicial official to which we have access, that America is founded upon principles of liberty under the rule of law, and that the U.S. Constitution (as LAWFULLY amended, i.e., not including the 16th and 17th) IS the rule of law, and WILL BE obeyed every time, no exceptions and no excuses. If the power is not delegated in so many words to the federal government in that document, the federal government DOESN'T HAVE IT. We will not comply with color of law imposed without Constitutional authority.

So it's OK for you to pick and choose what amendments you recognize. Then you rant about the rule of law. Both amendments were enacted following the rule of law, in fact Arizona voted yes for both the 16th and 17th.

There is just too much stupid in this rant to justify a reasoned response. It's no wonder this country is in the mess it's in. Boomers are like cancer.

Mr. Wiechmann,

Did someone put a gun to your head and require you to reply? If you want civil debate and respect for your views, you may want to leave the juvenile diatribes somewhere else. Might I recommend the Daily Kos.
