No Self Defense Allowed

Two recent news stories have me up in arms. The first is about a Marine who was arrested for carrying a gun on a college campus. (Source) The reason this bothers me is because he has a concealed carry license and was not doing it to harm anyone, but to protect himself and others from the crazies that have been shooting up college campi in recent days. If I were back in college, I would love to know that there was a Marine in my classes packing heat because I would feel safe. A lot safer than some silly zero-tolerance policy that is going to do nothing to stop a madman from carrying a gun on campus intent on doing harm.

The second story is about a rancher on the border who is being portrayed as a bad guy for protecting his property and his country from illegal aliens. (Source) First of all, why can't a man protect his property any more? And secondly, if the government isn't going to protect the borders, then why can't the citizens?

Just more examples of our country heading in the wrong direction, in Hucklebuck's humble opinion.

You Only Turn 200 Once

Today is the 200th birthday of two famous men: Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin. I find it interesting that Google chose to honor Darwin over Lincoln today.

I'm not surprised, mind you, given Google's leftist political views, but I am still disappointed.

Presidential Quote

According to the Associated Press, President Obama told the National Prayer Breakfast "There is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being." So what can we make from that statement?

1. President Obama is lying. He does not believe that statement and he is only saying it to appease to a certain group of people.

2. He believes it, but somehow thinks that it's still acceptable for man to take an innocent life.

3. He does not see that abortion is the taking of innocent life.

I'm afraid #3 is the correct answer. And that's the problem. It has become so commonplace in our society, that we don't see it for what it really is. My prayer today is that President Obama and millions of others in this country would see abortion for what it really is.

Duck Tales Explains Inflation

I sure wish our government leaders would learn this simple lesson about inflation from Duck Tales before they vote on this stimulus pork package.
