Bond, McCaskill, and Kagan

This was sent to the Southeast Missourian as  a Letter To The Editor on 7/12/10:

In the near future, Missouri’s Senators will have an opportunity to vote to confirm Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court. The question this time is whether or not Bond and McCaskill will vote with Missouri values or with Washington Politics.

Both Missouri Senators voted to confirm Sotomayor. During her nomination hearings, Sotomayor, under oath, testified that she believed in the 2nd Amendment. “I understand the individual right fully that the Supreme Court recognized in Heller.”

However, in the McDonald vs. Chicago case, which extended Heller to a state-level gun-ban, Sotomayor joined the dissent saying:

“In sum, the Framers did not write the Second Amendment in order to protect a private right of armed self defense.”

Here (http://www.redstate.com/brian_d/2010/07/01/fact-kagan-is-anti-second-amendment/) is a great review of Kagan’s anti-gun stance!

We know that Sotomayor lied during her confirmation about her anti-gun stance; we know Kagan will do the same in dancing around the issue. Will Bond and McCaskill this time face the reality of her views against the text of the Constitution and Missouri’s values?

I pray this time they’ll vote NO! You already have one reason to vote out McCaskill (Sotomayor); her vote to confirm Kagan will just be more fuel for the fire. And, the RINO Kit Bond… …he can’t retire fast enough for me.

Take some time and look into her thoughts on the 1st Amendment if you want a REAL scare!

Founding Bud

If you’ve seen Bud Light’s latest commercial and have any red-blooded American left in you, you were probably pretty annoyed with what you saw:  Bud Light Commerical

In St. Louis they fought to save Anhueser-Busch from the auction block, but stockholders, more worried about a few bucks than a GREAT American company sold out for a few more “Benjamins”.  InBev bought the company on the cheap US Dollar at the end of 2008 , and I’ve watched the downward spiral ever since.  Weeks before Christmas, InBev AB laid off 700 Information Services employees in the buildings near Laumeier Park in Sunset Hills, MO.  And that’s just the start.

More than 1400 firings, reductions in perks and benefits, dwindling philanthropy, changes at Grant’s Farm and uncertainty at Sea World, InBev is putting profits first!

Now, the fact that AB is no longer American-owned shines through in the commercial link above that was played routinely over the 2010 4th of July weekend and beyond:

“Where the blazes is Jefferson?!?!”

“T.J.?  He’s probably still writing [Air Quotes] that Declaration! [/Air Quotes]”

My blood immediately boiled.  How dare the Belgians trivialize my Declaration of Independence!! There is no document on the face of this Earth that had more effect on Liberty and Freedom.  And, now with the demise of the American-owned Anhueser-Busch, the country that hosts the failing EU makes light of our founding documents which, when adhered to, created the most powerful, caring, and free country on the planet.

Thanks to the Dutch for making fun of our [Air Quotes] Declaration [/Air Quotes].  Don’t Worry.  We’ll be sure to be there with our [Air Quotes] Military [/Air Quotes] to help you keep your [Air Quotes] Freedom [/Air Quotes] the next time you are overrun by tyranny.
