WHAT? But all the Republicans said he was going to take away my guns! – ‘Obama’s 23 Planned Executive Actions On Guns’

executive action

How anybody could be against these actions is beyond me.

But allow me to introduce the Republican Party.

If President Obama does ANYTHING – it’s unConstitutional.

1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.

4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.

  1. Reblogged this on American Liberal Times and commented:
    As I see it, there are a lot of people on the fringe right who are always waiting for the Obama-Centric tyranny that never actually comes. I think it is some form paranoia but I am not sure just how treatable it might be. I do think it must be an awfully uncomfortable way to live.
    Thanks to Fatherkane for another excellent post on this intruguing problem.

    YOU – ‘There he goes again, using children as mere stage props.
    ME – (The children or ‘stage props’ as you called them, were 4 that had written President Obama re: the shootings’.
    Please see America Blog where there is a wonderful story over how Republicans have used children in photo ops also.)

    YOU – (Remember the fake doctors in white lab coats?)
    ME – You mean the 150 real doctors who some forgot/didn’t bring ‘lab coats’ as requested?
    See : http://www.newser.com/story/71082/obama-gave-out-white-coats-for-doctor-photo-op.html

    YOU – Hey, The One’s in good company; Stalin, Mao, Hitler and others did the same thing to great effect. So, why shouldn’t he do the same, right?
    ME – (GRINS!) The only people who refer to the President as ‘The One’ are uninformed right wing fanatics. Look in a mirror if you wonder who they are.
    Terms like that add nothing to the conversation so why do you use them?
    Makes you feel like a big man?
    It does show you have nothing intelligent to add.
    Now as to Stalin, Mao and Hitler – Did they also have doctors wear ‘lab coats’?
    It’s the only reason I can see you mentioned them.

    YOU – Instead of providing these kids the same armed security his own children get, Obama exploits them to advance his own liberal political agenda.
    ME – Actually the agents in the school are unarmed. Also, we the people via acts in Congress are the ones, knowing the importance, provide family members of the President with protection.
    I’m confused as to who you think President Obama is ‘exploiting’ – his children or all other children?

    YOU – Sadly, these kids will have to return to schools that are gun-free, except for predators, naturally. No armed guards or teachers allowed to carry concealed protection, and none of his 23 legislative proposals and executive actions will provide them.
    ME – You’re right. We don’t live in a perfect World.
    But do we want to raise our children in an America that stands for ‘freedom’ and ‘liberty’, the ‘greatest Nation in the World’ where we have to have armed guards in our schools?

    OK. You really need to learn how our Government works. President Obama’s 23 Executive orders and not legislative proposals.
    And if you were not blinded by ideological hate and ignorance, he does propose funding for additional police that can/will be used to add security to schools.

    YOUIf, God forbid, we have another Sandy Hook, the blood will be on his hands.
    ME The blood will be on the hands of the shooter. A shooter with a weapon.

    YOU And why no mention yesterday of the rampant violence which permeates the movie industry? No “executive action” or proposal to at least consider that may be part of the problem. Oh, I forgot, it was his pals in Hollywood who helped get him reelected, and who received all those juicy tax breaks to avoid paying their “fair share.” What a blazing hypocrite.
    ME Again – learn how our Government actually works. Any action such as the ‘Practice Range’ app the NRA just put out, allowing the players to ‘shoot’ at coffin shaped targets, would fall under regulatory.
    And that has to be legislative.

    It is good to be passoinate about what you believe in. With your rant however, you show a good deal of ignorance re: the workings of our Government.
    Also flaming ideology adds nothing.
    Check it at the door.
    Try to get informed and present intelligent arguments.

    The One, and yes, I WILL call him THE ONE (or should I genuflect and refer to him as Our Lord and Savior Barack Obama, as Jamie Foxx did) does have a long-time habit of shamelessly using human stage props whenever he gets his mug in front of the camera with his trusty teleprompter crutch. (except, of course, if it’s a woman wearing Muslim headgear, then she’s hastily shuffled out of camera range). Try to deny it’s an addiction of his, Mr. Liming. I dare you. And the reason I mentioned Stalin, Mao and Hitler is because they DID use children as props for propaganda purposes. If you want, I can direct you to ample visual examples to support my claim. Sure, all politicians on both sides of the aisle have used people as visual aids, but the current occupant of the Oval Office has made it an art form.

    Speaking of calling That Person The One, It seems you’re fellow liberal lowlifes had no problem referring to George Bush derisively as “Dubya.” Did that make YOU feel like a big man?

    Of course I don’t object to presidential children (or, as Michelle refers to her offspring, “Senior Staffers,” in order to have us taxpayers cough up the $432,142 for her to take them on her little African junket a couple of years ago). Clean the wax out of your ears, Johnny—I’m talking about his hypocrisy that his kids deserve protection but he thinks mine don’t.

    And I see you simply sidestepped the whole Hollywood connection issue with your inane response, “learn how government works.” What in the hell does that have to do with what I asked? The left-wing jackasses out here in Tinseltown have got their hands in his pockets, and vice-versa, and have no hesitation to flaunt it in our faces. Just look at the outrageous comments made recently at the Golden Globes Awards.

    You can throw meaningless words at me like ignorant and flaming ideology, and calling me uninformed and unintelligent til the cows come home. Give it your best shot, pal. Doesn’t faze me. My mother used to say calling others derogatory names only shows your lack of intelligence. Thanks for proving her right. It’s high time you took a sobering look in the mirror.

    • Oh I know my words have no effect on you. Nor, like you, do I care.
      You are just one of the babbling little fringe freaks out there.
      But start asking yourself.
      Does anybody except those like you, fringe freaks, listen to anything you have to say?

      No.

      You have nothing intelligent to add so no one intelligent is going to listen to you.

      Oh and I’m so sorry you have a reading or maybe a comprehension problem :

      You : “And I see you simply sidestepped the whole Hollywood connection issue with your inane response”.

      Yesterday : YOU And why no mention yesterday of the rampant violence which permeates the movie industry? No “executive action” or proposal to at least consider that may be part of the problem. Oh, I forgot, it was his pals in Hollywood who helped get him reelected, and who received all those juicy tax breaks to avoid paying their “fair share.” What a blazing hypocrite.
      ME Again – learn how our Government actually works. Any action such as the ‘Practice Range’ app the NRA just put out, allowing the players to ‘shoot’ at coffin shaped targets, would fall under regulatory.
      And that has to be legislative.

      But THANK YOU Jimbob for simply sidestepping the long list of other Presidents using children in photo ops, your so called ‘fake doctors’ debunked, your naming Stalin, Mao and Hitler which you still won’t explain (except to repeat an ideology hear but really can’t explain), your ‘armed’ guards that really aren’t, your ‘ 23 legislative proposals and executive actions’ which neither exist. (there were 23 Executive Orders and 5 legislative proposals. Again at least make an effort to inform yourself so you can talk intelligently.)and finally simply sidestepping your reference to movie and game violence while sidestepping the NRA’s ‘Practice Range’ phone app.

      You are making a fool of yourself (something I imagine you have a lot of practice at) by keep diverting to different topics and then not responding when called out on it.

      It makes you and your opinion irrelevant since you won’t defend what you say.
