The piece starts this way:
Warning that we need to “get weapons of war and massive ammunition magazines off our streets,” in his State of the Union, Obama kept repeating congress must vote on the three types of gun bills he supports. 
The most obvious thing that was left out of the talk was that none of the laws now being proposed would have done anything to stop the various attacks that Obama cited as justifying the laws.  Nor does the evidence show that the previous Assault Weapon Ban from 1994 to 2004 reduced crime. 
Were some of the killers mentally ill?  Undoubtedly, “yes,” but none of these individuals had previously been involuntarily committed as a threat to themselves or to others. 
Connecticut already had a strict assault weapon ban.  But there is no proposed federal or state ban that would have mattered.  . . . .

"weapons of war and massive ammunition magazines" Obama

Mr. President, I'll tell you what's a "weapon of war" - a missile from a drone on its way to kill an innocent 16 year old AMERICAN CITIZEN who had the misfortune to have been born to the wrong father, and the further misfortune to be overseas. That is a REAL "WEAPON OF WAR!" And, come to think of it, maybe we should have a "conversation" about banning THEM.

OK. I guess I've finally crossed the line. I am now Paranoid. I'm going to have to stay away from the internet for a while. This stuff floating around about a semi-truck filled with "Marshal Law in Effect" signs. The "litmus test" for retention in the military - "would you be willing to fire on American Citizens, if given the order?" My personal aquaintance told me that his BROTHER had knowledge (first hand) of the American Pilot that shot down the plane over Pennsylvania on 9/11. (ever hear THAT one?) The American citizens vaporized by the Administration at any time Obama sees fit to do it. No trial, no "phone call", no warning, no ANYTHING - except (I guess you don't even hear it coming - now your here, now your NOT!) This unlimited "investments"of TRILLIONS of dollars. Discussions about limiting it but always at a vague future date. And, everone acting as if it's "business as usual!" I mean do you remember when people CARED that the President might be misbehaving in some way? - Watergate, a sexual misbehavior, these things were a BIG DEAL! the Mainstream "news" outlets are just arms of the Whitehouse. ANY THING that man does is OK. A N Y t h i n g. Is this the way it felt to be in Germany in 1938? Am I "Chicken Little"?

I had a little revelation last night as I was trying to drift off to sleep. No one is bringing up impeachment for Obama for the simple reason that no one would likely survive the attempt.

They'd certainly fall into the category of "homegrown TERRORIST" - wouldn't they? And, then they could be "dissapeared" or just outright murdered, at the presidents whim.

I guess it's good to be KING!

A lot of people already knew this. I'm sometimes a slow learner - but I "get" it now.
