PETITION URGENTLY REQUESTING THAT CONGRESS LAUNCH AN INDEPENDENT AND COMPREHENSIVE INVESTIGATION INTO UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES ON THE PART OF PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA
To: All members of the U.S. Congress:
Whereas, top constitutional attorneys from across the political spectrum now agree that Barack Obama has committed certain specific offenses that unquestionably rise to the level of impeachable “high crimes and misdemeanors”;
Whereas, one of these offenses – that of illegally conducting war against Libya – has been deemed by a bipartisan panel of constitutional experts to be “clearly an impeachable offense” and “gross usurpation of the war power”;
Whereas, Obama’s policy of targeted assassinations of U.S. citizens without any constitutionally required due process – including the drone assassination of an American-born 16-year-old as he was eating dinner – is unanimously deemed by experts, both liberal and conservative, as “an impeachable offense”;
Whereas, Obama’s Justice Department has presided over the disastrous “Fast and Furious” operation in which approximately 2,000 firearms were directed from U.S. gun shops across the U.S.-Mexico border and into the hands of members of Mexican drug cartels, resulting in the deaths of as many as 100 people, including U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry – a scandal that constitutional experts agree constitutes, at a minimum, clear grounds for impeaching Attorney General Eric Holder;
Whereas, Obama has – in clear-cut violation of his oath to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed” imposed by Article II of the Constitution – refused to defend the Defense of Marriage Act, which was passed into law in 1996 under President Bill Clinton;
Whereas, Obama usurped the authority of Congress by issuing an executive order in June 2012 declaring that illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. before they turned 16 and who are younger than 30 would not be deported – essentially duplicating the DREAM Act which failed to pass in Congress;
Whereas, Obama made several recess appointments in January 2012 while the Senate was still officially in session, actions the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit recently ruled violated the Constitution because they weren’t made when the Senate was in recess;
Whereas, Whereas, the Obama administration’s multi-faceted scandal in Benghazi, Libya, which resulted in the murder of the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans, is not only proof of what legal experts call tremendous “deceit” on the part of Obama and his top team, but a serious constitutional violation as well;
Whereas, Whereas, numerous other constitutional outrages characterize Obama's presidency – from his administration’s abuses of citizens’ civil rights under cover of the PATRIOT Act; to the Obama Justice Department’s refusal to prosecute the worst case of voter intimidation in modern times, perpetrated by club-wielding New Black Panthers; to Obama’s appointment of more than 30 unelected “czars” to positions in federal agencies when the Constitution requires such appointments be vetted by Congress; and other instances of clear contempt for Congress, the Constitution and the American people:
SIGN THE PETITION
Therefore, Therefore, we the undersigned urge Congress to immediately undertake a full and impartial investigation into the many blatantly unconstitutional actions of Barack Obama, with particular focus on the illegal war against Libya and the illegal “kill list” of U.S. citizens – offenses universally condemned by top constitutional experts as both unprecedented and unquestionably impeachable. For members of Congress, who have also sworn solemn oaths to uphold the Constitution, to allow a president to routinely flout the Supreme Law of the Land without being held accountable is equally repugnant to a free country and a free people.

@ElevatorLady: First of all "Pit Bull" is NOT a official breed, it is a generic term used to describe dog breeds.
More children are killed every year by doctors and big pharma than by "bull dogs". So save your selected anger for the idiot in the whitehouse and quit blamming a dog for the failures of the owner.
More willing goons goose stepping in the continued escalation of the tyrannical police state.
I wonder how many weeks of training was spent on respecting the rights of the citizens they serve. Do they swear an oath to uphold the constitution or do they swear an oath to the state and the brotherhood.
From what I have witnessed in the past; these folks have spent the last eleven weeks being stripped of their humanities, reinforced by a "us vs. them" mentality. A dominate and intimidate attitude towards their communities all while using military tactics against an unsuspecting population.
Throw in a couple of days of dog shooting and you have created the perfect jack-booted thug, mindless, souless, and violent.
Welcome to the Police State.
"People are attacked by other breeds of dog all the time. The media focuses on the pit bull attacks only"
Yep, in the 70s it was Dobermans, In the 80s it was German Shepards, In the 90s it was Rottweilers, the 2000s brought us the "Pit Bull Attack".
When another breed "attacks" it a dog bite.
With a Bull Dog it is always reported as a "attack".
I own a beautiful 70lb Staffordshire Terrier, highly intelligent, loyal and very hard working. Only type of dog I would ever own.
But..If he were to become aggressive and bite me or anyone else, he would be killed. No question
another victim of the illegal and unconstitutional drug war.
After 50+ years of failure, why do we tolerate such a waste of human life and tax-payers money? Education and treatment better serve the community.
Legislate and violate and incarcerate do not work.
When dealing with Law Enforcement:
Remember; Do not consent to searches.
Do not engage in conversation with LEOs
Know your rights
and Flex your Rights

That point is a matter of perspective.

So you are paranoid then, or do you speak from experience (history).
so its OK for you to protect your junk with a method of your own choosing.
What right do you have to tell anyone how they may choose to protect their loved ones and possesions.
[quote][b]Ben Had[/b] - I don't live in fear.[/quote]
You sure do, you fear your neighbors who are gun owners.
Fact is your a hypocriet, the worse kind, because you fear the truth.
Be aware and Beware.
Here is a question for BenHad and the other liberals on this forum.
Do you lock your doors at night?, do lock your homes before you leave for work? Do you lock up your car in the parking lots when shopping?
Do you keep your precious items in a safe? If so then WHY?
@Ben Had: Typical liberal logic; If you disagree with my opinion you are either a mental case or racist.
Democide in the 20th century....look it up.posted @ Monday, January 21, 2013 - 11:38
Let a man never stir on his road a step
without his weapons of war;
for unsure is the knowing when need shall arise
of a spear on the way without.
Heed the words of the ancestors, I know I do.
One should never journey out unarmed, for one never knows what dangers the day may bring.
Sorry but Inalienable right trumps "regulated " every time.
The Constitution is for regulating government powers, Not the peoples freedoms.
@broomsedge: History dictates otherwise, gun regulations lead to gun confiscations lead to democide.
Ask the a Native American how surrendering thier guns worked out for them,
Govt sure to care of them...almost to extinction.
So all you gun-grabber-nut-cases can just suck it up.
Inalienable right: look it up..... My gun rights are not up for discussion...ever..by you or anyone else..ever...period
@E.J.: "I'm sick of this extremist talk!"...LOL can't handle anothers point of view...resort to calling them "extreme"
[in-eyl-yuh-nuh-buh l, -ey-lee-uh-] Show IPA
not alienable; not transferable to another or capable of being repudiated: inalienable rights.
Shall not be infringed upon.
Get used to it and get over it
December 29, 2012, marked the 122nd anniversary of the massacre of 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. These 297 people, in their winter camp, were murdered by federal agents and members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms “for their own safety and protection.” The slaughter began AFTER the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms. When the final round pierced the air, of the 297 dead or dying, two-thirds (or 200) were women and children!
Around 40 members of the 7th Cavalry were killed. Over half of the dead were by friendly fire from the Hotchkiss guns, which were in the hands of their overzealous comrades-in-arms. Twenty members of the 7th Cavalry were deemed “National Heroes” and awarded the Medal of Honor for their acts of cowardice.
We do not hear of Wounded Knee today. Historians do not mention it in our history classes or books. What little does exist about Wounded Knee is normally the sanitized “Official Government Explanation” or the historically and factually inaccurate depictions of the events leading up to the massacre on the movie screen. Wounded Knee was among the first federally backed gun confiscation attempts in United States history. It ended in the senseless murder of 297 people.
Before you jump on the emotionally charged bandwagon for gun-control, take a moment to reflect on the real purpose of the Second Amendment--The right of the people to take up arms in defense of themselves, their families, and property in the face of invading armies or an oppressive government. The argument that the Second Amendment only applies to hunting and target shooting is asinine. When the United States drafted the Constitution, “hunting” was an everyday chore carried out by men and women to put meat on the table each night. “Target shooting” was an unheard of concept. Musket balls were a precious commodity in the wilds of early America and were certainly not wasted “target shooting.” People who fled oppressive and tyrannical regimes in Europe wrote the Second Amendment, which refers to the right to arm American citizens for defense purposes should such tyranny rise in the United States.
As time goes on, the average citizen in the United States continues to lose personal freedom or “liberty.” Far too many times, unjust bills are passed and signed into law under the guise of “for your safety” or “for protection.” The Patriot Act signed into law by G.W. Bush, which was expanded and continued by Barack Obama, is just one of many examples of American citizens being stripped of their rights and privacy for “safety.” Now, the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is on the table and will most likely be abolished for “our safety.”
Before any American citizen blindly accepts whatever new firearms legislation that is about to be voted upon, they should stop and think about something for just one minute—Evil does exist in our world. It always has and always will. Throughout history evil people have committed evil acts. In the Bible, one of the first stories is that of Cain killing Abel. We cannot legislate away “evil.” Good people will abide by the law; defective people will always find a way around it.
Furthermore, evil exists all around us. However, looking back at the historical record of the past 200 years across the globe, where is “evil” and “malevolence” most often found? They are found in the hands of those with power—tyrants in governments. We can attribute the worst human tragedies on record and the largest loss of innocent human life to governments. Who do governments target? They target “scapegoats” and “enemies” within their own borders…but only after they have been disarmed to the point where they are no longer a threat. Ask any Native American, and they will tell you it was inferior technology and lack of arms that contributed to their demise. Ask any Armenian why it was so easy for the Turks to exterminate millions of them, and they will answer, “We were disarmed before it happened.” Ask any Jew what Hitler’s first step prior to the mass murders of the Holocaust was—confiscation of firearms from the people.
Wounded Knee is the prime example of why the Second Amendment exists, and why we should not be in such a hurry to surrender our Right to Bear Arms. Without the Second Amendment, we have no right to defend ourselves and our families. “There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by the sword. The other is by debt.” ~ John Adams, 1826
Viked from anothers blog......makes you go hmmm???
SOURCE of the PROBLEM:
In 1957 there were over 500,000+ institutionalized in State Mental Institutions and we had reasonable involuntary commitment laws. We had no modern "gun control" laws, could buy your M1 Carbine through the mail along with all the 30 round magazines you wanted- yet mass random shootings NEVER HAPPENED!!! Was 1957 America a police state? Doctors and judges made the decision who to keep in the loony bin, and they could not get out until they were no longer a threat to self or a public threat. You still had the rights to a lawyer and judge to prove your sanity and get out if there was no basis for the decision.
Today we have emptied and closed the State Mental Institutions, created the homeless population, made involuntary commitment impossible until AFTER you commit a crime- and then try and blame guns for the actions of the mental patients!!! Jared Laughner- parents tried to get him help at least twice but were turned down for la#$%$ insurance, neighbors said he would ride around on his bike talking to himself, school said he was unbalanced- in the PAST he would have been institutionalized long before he shot Gabby based on his obvious illness! Virginia Tech- school teachers said he was unbalanced- in the PAST he would have been institutionalized based on his obvious behavior!!! Colorado- His college psychiatrist was so alarmed by Holmes that she had him banned from the campus, but nothing else. Colorado media, including the Denver Post, reported last month that Fenton rejected a law enforcement offer to involuntarily confine Holmes for 72 hours after he told her six weeks before the shooting that he fantasized about killing "a lot of people." In the PAST- she could have had him involuntarily committed BEFORE he hurt anyone, you didn't have to wait until they were an imminent threat to themselves or others!!! What was even the POINT of him trying to get help from the psychiatrist when all she did was ban him from the school???!!! Even Charles Whitman in 1966, the first of these crazed mass-shooters warned authorities before hand by seeking help from Texas University's school psychiatrist- repeatedly! He had severe migraine headaches and extreme anger that HE knew was irrational, turned out he had a BRAIN TUMOR- discovered AFTER his death!!! He even told his psychiatrist he was fantasizing about shooting people from the tower!!! If his school psychiatrist had remotely done his job he would have gotten the help he sought. To this day Texas University won't release all of Whitman's medical records, claiming the deceased "right to privacy"- so the school won't be SUED!!!! Newtown CT- Mother was so scared of her son she told sitters not to turn their ba#$%$ on him even if they went to the bathroom, but with him not having committed a crime involuntary commitment is virtually impossible and there is no where to send him. 40 years ago he would have been institutionalized in a State Mental Institution based on his behavior. You know where the largest State Mental Institution in Connecticut is? NEWTOWN- its been CLOSED for DECADES! This is NOT a "gun control" issue!posted @ Wednesday, January 16, 2013 - 12:14
@stpaisleyblue: I was given a drink of the precious mead that flowed from Odrerir.
I began to quicken and be wise,
I began to grow and to prosper;
One word found another word for me,
One deed found another deed for me.
The heron of forgetfulness hovers over the ale drinking,
he steals mens wits;
with the feathers of this bird I was fettered
in the court of Gunnlod.
Obviously these youths are products of a thug culture and broken homes.
Not until these folks decide to take responsibilty for their own lives and the lives of their offspring will anything ever change.
You are your deeds.
@Ravenbear: Hail Ravenbear,
Since you are allwise in all things Heathen, and have a deep understanding of Heathen Weltanschauung.
I will challenge you to come before Thing this summer,
there you can run your mouth and test "my" knowledge.
Be prepared to put-up or shut-up.
If you do not accept this challenge, I will publicly call you out as a coward.
The Georgia Heathen Society typically holds a summer Moot and Thing every year.
I look forward to our meeting.
Oh and if you need help with directions email me.
And in response to your "stomped out" comment.
Nothing can be further from the truth. WE ARE STILL HERE.
christianity is dysfunctional, your god was treated like a lowly prisoner, then killed by his own people.
Despite the best efforts of the church to destroy our Northern Folkway.
WE ARE STILL HERE!!
We will not quietly be taken prisoner and led to slaughter like your sheep god.
Should the subduing talisman, the Cross, break,
then will come roaring forth the wild madness of the old champions,
the insane berserker rage of which the Northern poets sing.
That talisman is brittle and the day will come when it shall pitifully break!
The old stone gods will rise from the long forgotten ruins
and rub the dust of a thousand years from their eyes;
And Thor, leaping to life with his Giant Hammer will crush the Cathedrals!"

@shrapnel: Just like a christian; ready to blame a Heathen. This act was clearly done by teenagers as a prank.
Bu dont let that stop you from blaming someone you fear and misunderstand.
By the way. We don't need to be forgiven by your puny god and his prisoner son.
Hail the strong and Tru folk.posted @ Tuesday, April 26, 2011 - 10:24

Rep. Regina Quick, R-Athens, was one of two local delegates to score less than an "A+" in the Chamber of Commerce's annual legislative score card. She and I played phone tag Monday when I was reporting the story and I wasn't able to get her comments in a timely fashion. Instead, she sent over this statement Wednesday morning and she did not mince her words. (Links and italicized portions are my own; otherwise, it's as she wrote it.) Dear Friends: read more
The committee opted Tuesday night to put off deciding on the ordinance until, at the earliest, its next meeting. Of note: The Athens-Clarke County attorney highlighted that the proposed times are, in essence, placeholders for the commission to change or keep as it pleases.
