All Da King's Men

Born Free

By David King Published: March 31, 2013

George Mason University's Mercatus Center, a libertarian think tank, conducted a study and ranked the freedom of our 50 states. New York was ranked as the least free state, to which NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg responded, 'That study should be banned !".

Okay, I'm joking about Bloomberg, but the George Mason study is real:

Political Reasons

By David King Published: March 27, 2013

For this blog post, I'd like to introduce you to the liberal voice inside my head (yes, there are voices inside my head) , who I'll refer to as Lib-erace. He screams left-wing talking points in my ear whenever I write anything that goes against progressive theology.  As you can imagine, Lib-erace screams at me A LOT. Befitting his name, my Lib-erace is a whiny, flamboyant fellow. He is prone to shrill fits of hysteria and rage. Unlike his namesake, however, my Lib-erace doesn't have any talent, which is unfortunate. If he could play Moonlight Sonata or a few Chopin nocturnes in my ear, he'd be a lot more welcome.  Sometimes I  laugh at and talk back to Lib-erace, which causes people on the bus to shy away and look at me funny. I am currently NOT taking any medication for my disorder, which I call Liberal Irritable Howl Syndrome (LIHS, pronounced "lies"), though once I drank a little too much and started talking to the portraits of former Presidents hanging on the walls of my big white house. No wait, that was Nixon, not me. Hmmm. Maybe I should be on medication...oh well.

On to today's content.

Mandatory Cruel And Unusual Punishment

By David King Published: March 25, 2013

In 2004, 24-year old record producer Weldon Angelos sold eight ounces of marijuana to a government informant. Angelos had a gun strapped to his ankle at the time. He did not use or brandish the weapon, which Angelos said he carried for self-defense. Later, the same transaction was repeated. Angelos sold another eight ounces of pot in another government-arranged sale. Angelos carried his ankle gun for that sale as well. A third government-arranged eight ounce marijuana sale took place at Angelos' home. The police then arrested Mr. Angelos, and found guns in his house.

Angelos was convicted of three counts of selling drugs, and for carrying a gun in commission of his crimes. There was no violence involved in any of these crimes, and Mr. Angelos had no prior arrests.

Rare Democrat Sighting In Senate

Another Mass Murderer Of Children

By David King Published: March 23, 2013

But this is one mass murderer about whom President Obama will remain silent. There will be no calls for congressional bans, no "if there's even one life that can be saved" rhetoric. There will be no legislative attempts from the Democratic party to prevent this from happening again.

The perpetrator of these mass killings is Dr. Kenneth Gosnell, who ran an abortion "clinic" in Philadelphia. Here's a brief description of what was done at Gosnell's "clinic":

Trying to make left wingers understand that their policies depress economic growth, inhibit job creation, shrink wages, and raise prices is no easy task. It requires some heavy lifting. Left wingers are so focused on providing feelgood direct assistance to the "little guy" that they miss the larger implications of their economic policies, which ironically harm the little guy the most. I suppose this is what happens when emotions trump logic in decision-making, and it's why I refer to left wingers as Level One thinkers on economic matters. They desperately need to get to Level Two. Perhaps then people like Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) won't go around saying ridiculous thinkgs, like how unemployment is such a big economic stimulus (correct answer - EMPLOYMENT is a big economic stimulus). I try to keep hope alive, but it ain't easy when so much iNANity is being spouted.

In my ongoing public service efforts to educate liberals about economic matters, I turn today to ObamaCare and it's effect on business. The New York Times attempted a case study on ObamaCare's impact on one small business, a bakery called Baked In The Sun. Here's what ObamaCare will do to this business:

The Case Against Gay Marriage

By David King Published: March 21, 2013

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America" -  Preamble to the Constitution of the United States of America

The Preamble states the reasons we establish government. Most of those reasons boil down to one overriding reason - in the American tradition, government exists primarily to secure our liberties. We have a military to "provide for the common defence" in order to secure our collective liberty. We have police departments to "insure domestic tranquiity" in order to protect both our collective and individual liberty. We "establish Justice" through our court system to protect liberty.

Budget SNAFU

By David King Published: March 15, 2013

For years, I've wondered why anyone takes House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) seriously. Virtually every time I hear the woman speak, I want to cringe at the vapidity emanating from her blowhole. Her latest utterance was no exception. Here's San Fran Nan opining on the budget:

“By and large,  the approach the Republicans take is that they are there to shrink the role of government to the point where it really recalls to mind a statement of President Washington who cautioned about a political party at war with its own government...we [Democrats] don’t want any more government than we need,  but we respect the public role: public private partnerships, and putting a referee on the field . . . to monitor clean air, clean water, food safety; a cop on the beat for the protection of our neighborhoods.”

Thursday...Or Is It ?

By David King Published: March 14, 2013

On the same day the new Pope was chosen, physicists announced the discovery of the God particle.

Coincidence ? Heck no. It's more likely the new Pope's first miracle, akin to Moses parting the Red Sea, Jesus walking on water, or Democrats coming up with a non-government solution. Such miracles are exceedingly rare outside the Las Vegas magician community, and should not be taken lightly. I, for one, am happy to get this confirmation that Catholicism is the one true religion. It means I didn't waste my childhood being exposed to those other religions, the false pagan ones. What a stroke of luck.

Real Gun Agenda Of The Left

By David King Published: March 12, 2013

I wrote a few weeks ago that I was onboard with common sense gun legislation, like background checks. I still am, but let's not pretend we don't know what the real agenda of the left is regarding guns.

They want to ban them completely, and when they pretend they don't, they're lying.

The No-Information Voter

By David King Published: March 10, 2013

A few months ago, I read this:

"I would be willing to wager that if an average citizen of Athens of 1,000 BC were to appear suddenly among us, he or she would be among the brightest and most intellectually alive of our colleagues and companions," Crabtree wrote in a study that appeared in Trends in Genetics. "I would also guess that he or she would be among the most emotionally stable of our friends and colleagues."

Republican Rift

By David King Published: March 8, 2013

Following Attorney General Eric Holder's controversial statement that allowed for the possibility of the President carrying out drone strikes on American citizens here in America, Sen. Rand Paul began asking questions. He asked if "the President has the power to authorize lethal force, such as a drone strike, against a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil, and without trial". I really wanted to hear the answer to that question myself.

Holder responded:

Chavez Dead, His Politics Alive

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is dead.

Because the man represented the kind of totalitarian socialist politics I despise, you won't hear any Chavez compliments here.

The Problem With Politicians

By David King Published: March 4, 2013

Try to name the politician who said the following words:

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government can’t pay its own bills..It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government’s reckless fiscal policies.

Rumors Of Senate's Life Greatly Exaggerated

By David King Published: March 2, 2013

With the sequester looming at midnight last, the Senate awakened from it's coma, blinked it's eyes, took a bleary-eyed look around..and then laid down and went back to sleep.

Thanks, Senate. I know you're supposed to be the world's greatest deliberative body, but you distinguished gentlemen and gentlewomen have been deliberating on budgetary matters for almost four years now. It's time to make some choices already. Y'all make turtles look like Usain Bolt.

Looking For The Austerity...

By David King Published: March 1, 2013

As the sequester is poised to take effect at midnight, the word of the day is "austerity", as in "America is embarking on a path of austerity with the sequester spending cuts". That's what I keep hearing from our nation's vaunted deep-thinking experts, most of whom coincidentally look very attractive on television.

I've been looking all over for this alleged austerity, and with all due respect to our politicians and hell. We're nowhere near to austerity. I'm forced to repeat some numbers to refresh the memories of certain people regarding spending.
