D@mned Yankee Busybody

I'm a little hot about something. The all knowing mayor of New York has decided to point out how badly everybody else leads their lives without his guidance. First of all, the myth of the "gun show loophole" has been debunked so many times it isn't even funny. An illegal transaction is illegal anywhere you go. Secondly, what authority does Michael Bloomberg have to send people to other states for the purpose of breaking the law? I'd really like to see an AG in one of those states file charges against the investigators. Too bad he didn't try it in Montana. Or Texas, I think Perry would see it as a chance to really gain some support and separate himself from Kay Bailey.

Lastly, what the hell business is it of Mr. High and Mighty Big Shot Mayor of New York to spend his city's taxpayer dollars investigating other states? Is this why they have a city income tax, to pay for this crap? They can live under whatever the hell laws they want, but what right do they have to expect everybody else to follow their lead? Oh, thanks for explaining it to this backwoods simpleton, somebody might buy a gun in Tennessee(the patron state of shooting stuff) and take it to New York for the purpose of committing a crime(the reverse of sending somebody to Tennessee for the purpose of committing a crime). Guess what, I don't care. The crime is already illegal. Possession of the gun is already illegal in New York. What good is it going to do to force a law down Tennessee's throat? The first nine hundred laws weren't enough, but one more would definitely get crime stopped.

In short, Mayor Bloomberg, you are a poor excuse for the sort of American that our forefathers envisioned. We would all be better of if, upon hearing Samuel Adams say:
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude
greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us
in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down
and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon
you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen"

somebody had gotten fired up and just beat the stuffing out of your great great great grand dad to such an extent that he was unable to produce your great great grand dad. Then we would have been spared ever having you out there, looking for those who will kneel down and lick your hand. It brings me shame that posterity will know you as my countryman.


  1. I think that your post title sums up Mayor Bloomberg perfectly. Watch your visitor log, hopefully he or someone on his staff will read this. Good post.

    PS, I think some authorities in either Virginia or Georgia were going after his "investigators"

  2. So many others have commented on it that I doubt his people will even find mine, but I'll keep my fingers crossed. Thanks.
