I think you will find the San Diego Police Chief’s comments interesting – if not infuriating….
Note the quote by George Mason – it was over 200 years ago, but still applies today….
San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne “We Broke the NRA!”
Isn’t it something the difference between the police and the sheriff’s? While many sheriff’s around the country are publicly coming out and telling Obama they will not enforce any new gun laws he may try to jam down our throats here we now have San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne saying, “if lawmakers play it right Americans can be completely disarmed within “a generation.”
The lines on the Second Amendment clearly are being drawn. You have a choice to make. Do you stand with the Constitution and the Founders of this country or do you side with the people who even though they swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution have no hesitation of disregarding it? Where do you stand?
San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne is fully supportive of the Obama/Feinstein gun grab, and says if lawmakers play it right Americans
San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne
can be completely disarmed within “a generation.”
Lansdowne has gone on record saying: “I could not be more supportive of the president for taking the position he has. I think it’s courageous with the politics involved in this process. [And] I think it’s going to eventually make the country safer.”
He made it clear that it may take “a generation,” but new laws could eventually take all guns off the streets.
This is quite a departure from other law enforcement personnel we’ve seen around the country–particularly Sheriffs–who’ve come out firmly against any infringement on the 2nd Amendment. We’ve cheered those officials for standing with the people, and now Lansdowne has taken a position completely opposite them.
Moreover, Lansdowne has also been slamming the NRA in interviews. And he seems overtly thrilled at the money the NRA is being forced to spend to get their message out in the wake of the crime at Sandy Hook Elementary. “We broke the NRA,” says Lansdowne.

Remember what George Mason said back in 1778. Nothing is different today.
“Forty years ago, when the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man, who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually …”
Wow – I just got a copy of this opinion piece in my e-mail and am a new fan of this person. There are so many things in this piece that I have said over and over again about the reasons we are seeing an increase in senseless violence and many other problems in the country and throughout the world. Plenty of people won’t agree – but I still have the right to say I think it is great and simply… have to share. Definitely feel free to let me know what you think….

I was just about to publish my latest editorial as promised, on Canada’s Supreme Court Decision to suspend Freedom of Speech, in favor of promoting one language over all others.
THEN THE CONNECTICUT SCHOOL-SHOOTING HAPPENED.
Next to language issues in Canada, and a failed Judicial System in both of our countries, what happened in Connecticut takes precedence.
I won’t waste words describing my feelings, because how I feel about as many as, and maybe more than 26 people murdered, including 18 children is indescribable.
BUT I WILL TELL YOU WHY IT HAPPENED:
It didn’t happen because of the so-called gun culture, or because of poor security at the school. It happened because of the modern LEFTIST culture that has removed all semblances of personal responsibility and respect.
It happened because of the Hollywood and television types who lecture the Conservatives on how people should live, while they make FORTUNES producing absolute FILTH in their movies and on television programs.
It happened because of reality television shows that demean humanity. And shows that make people laugh at the pain and humiliation of others.
It happened because multi-millionaire computer game producers create UGLY digital scenarios that poison young minds with abject and gratuitous violence.
It happened because the school system doesn’t teach values, and promotes the idea that everything goes. And that all people are equal regardless of the truth. And that no one ever fails.
It happened because LEFTISTS won’t allow concerned and loving parents to discipline their children, or raise their children the way they want to.
It happened because far too many Liberals spend far too much time and effort ridiculing and attacking people who want to live by the lessons of the Bible and the Torah.
In truth . . . this and other horrible acts of violence happen, because our society from our entertainment industry, to schools, to the media, and our governments have created the social and cultural foundation that is eating away at our countries like a cancer.
I know that what I just wrote WILL inflame those on the LEFT, and that’s OK, because if they don’t like it . . . they can ROT in HELL along with the demons of their own creation.
I want my old country values back . . .
. . . when we stood in school when an adult entered the room. When we were really disciplined for bad behavior. When we were measured by our successes and failures. When not everyone had to waste years of his or her life in college studying basket weaving instead of taking a trade course, or going to work right after finishing high school. When your mom was a woman and your dad was a man. And when there weren’t vulgar parades extolling the “virtues” of being gay.
If you want to stop the sickness . . . IT’S TIME TO STOP THE LEFT.
In Sadness . . . Howard Galganov.

I just spotted this and am very curious if other people have heard anything about this. And, if they have, I’d be real curious to see and hear what is being said.
Global Times, a newspaper described as an “angry Chinese government mouthpiece,” recently published an editorial in which it called for “urgent gun control,” in the United States, the second Chinese Communist Party publication to do so within the last month.
The newspaper’s January 17 front page editorial entitled Political inertia hinders gun control action, states that there is “clearly an urgent need for gun control in the US,” lamenting that it will “be impossible for the country to ban guns.”
Striking an authoritarian tone, the editorial notes how, “The difficulties in promoting gun control show that US society lacks authorities willing and able to push forward reform.” Presumably, if the United States were a one party dictatorship like China, such “reforms” would be far easier to implement.
The editorial goes on to claim “how different China is from the US” and how the failure of gun control legislation “has become an institutional defect” of the United States. The piece even uses the gun control debate in the United States as an example of why the power of China’s ruling Communist dictatorship should not be weakened, arguing that, “China’s social transition cannot be developed into a process of decreasing of authorities.”
(Global Times is China’s third largest newspaper with a daily print readership of 2.4 million and a web audience of 10 million.)
I found this on Facebook – if you have conflicting information, feel free to share.
I asked for feedback or conflicting info and there was a comment directing me to this post –
It is a LONG post – but you should take a look. I especially found the distinctions between how the UK and the US describe the various crimes – to be very interesting. You should take a look.
Conservative Hispanic group tells GOP to avoid ‘amnesty’ label
A conservative pro-immigration reform group has issued talking points to Republican lawmakers, telling them to avoid referring to the U.S. citizen children of illegal immigrants as “anchor babies” or calling for the construction of an “electric fence” on the border, among other things.
The talking points, published by BuzzFeed, went out to Republican lawmakers on the Hill as momentum builds for an immigration bill that would legalize most of the country’s 11 million illegal immigrants. The memo urges lawmakers to call them “undocumented immigrants” and to avoid terms such as “aliens” or “illegals,” which are seen as offensive and dehumanizing. Another phrase to avoid? “Send them all back.”
“Conservatives get a bad rap when it comes to immigration reform because of a few people who say things that can be taken to be offensive,” said Jennifer Korn, executive director of the Hispanic Leadership Network, the center-right group that sent the talking points on Monday. “It all means the same thing, but the way you say it matters.”
Korn worked in the White House when President George W. Bush attempted to get immigration reform passed in his second term. Two bills—one in 2006, the other in 2007—died after a vocal grass-roots movement emerged in opposition to what it called “amnesty” for illegal immigrants. The amnesty tag stuck, even though both bills would have required any applicant to go through a lengthy legalization process that required him or her to meet certain requirements, like paying back taxes and a fine and learning English. Lawmakers received thousands of phone calls about the bill, Korn remembers, almost all of them strongly against reform.
Korn hopes theses talking points will help avoid the “pitfalls” she saw then.
“Right now what’s really giving me heartburn is people saying ‘pathway to citizenship,'” she said. “It’s not a pathway to citizenship. It’s ‘earned legal status.’ If you want conservative support you have to explain what it is so there’s not this knee-jerk reaction of ‘No amnesty!'”
Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican from Florida who’s part of a bipartisan group of senators pushing for immigration reform, has used “earned residency” at times in interviews with conservative talk show hosts to describe what immigration reform would provide to qualifying illegal immigrants. Democrats, including Obama, often use “pathway to citizenship” to describe the bill.

This is the full Do’s and Don’ts list – what are your thoughts??
I am all for finding a solution to the immigration situation in the US – and for people who want to be American and to be a productive part of society. But I am also for calling things what they are — if a person broke the law to get here – are here illegally. Also – when you call a person an alien – which is a noun, that is not dehumanizing. This is the definition of an alien –
It seems if you watch parts of the all the “news” channels or programs – you would wander if you’re watching news or a slightly politicized version of TMZ. “Reporters” asked questions and the person they are talking to – waves, smiles and walks away if the question is something they don’t want to answer. If their comment is complimentary enough – the subject of the questioning may come over to the reporter and say something witty or quotable.
Have the American people and “journalists” forgotten what we expect from them? Do they remember what it means to be a journalist?
This is a small excerpt from an interview Martin Bashir did last week and it is part of an article about the ongoing battle the Obama administration is waging on Fox News….
Last week Rolling Stone editor Michael Hastings – who is a liberal and said recently that “most journalists I know are liberal” – discussed his time covering Obama on the campaign trail. Among the things he witnessed was a reporter trying to interview Obama using a sock puppet.
He told MSNBCs Martin Bashir, “That’s the presence of Obama, even on the press corps, even on the people who follow him every day. When they are near him, they lose their mind sometimes. They start behaving in ways, you know, that are juvenile and amateurish and they swoon.”
