Where's my government entitlement AR-15 rifle?

The people who argue that health care is a “right” also believe, because it is a “right", that it is the responsibility of the government to provide them with health care.

Some argue the founding documents of the United States provide support for a right to health care. The Declaration of Independence states that all men have “unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness,” which necessarily entails having the health care needed to preserve life and pursue happiness. The purpose of the US Constitution, as stated in the Preamble, is to “promote the general welfare” of the people. So as part of the government effort to “promote the general welfare,” health care must be a legitimate function of government.

So, let’s call heath care a “right” for the moment. We already know that free speech is a “right", it says so in the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution. How does the government provide this “right” to individuals?

  • Public Radio, Public Television, Public Access Cable, Internet (provided by government or mandated by law to provide access to forums where free speech can be exercised)

So if you want to exercise your “right” of free speech, the government provides each individual with many mechanisms by which he or she can do that.

What about the second amendment? Let’s save that for the end

The Fifth Amendment creates a number of rights relevant to both criminal and civil legal proceedings:

  • The “right” to a grand jury (provided by the government)
  • The “right” to not be subjected to double jeopardy (provided by the government)
  • The “right” to not self-incriminate (provided by the government)
  • The “right” to due process of law (provided by the government)
  • The “right” to compensation when government takes private property (provided by the government)

Let’s look a the “rights” enumerated in the Sixth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, these have to do with the “rights” of criminal defendants:

  • The “right” to a public trial without unnecessary delay (provided by the government)
  • The “right” to a lawyer (provided by the government if you can’t afford one)
  • The “right” to an impartial jury (provided by the government if you can’t afford it)
  • The right to know who your accusers are (provided by the government)
  • The right to know the nature of the charges and evidence against you (provided by the government)

So it appears that if something is enumerated as a “right” (the ninth amendment says that “rights” are not limited to those enumerated in the Bill of Rights), then the government must provide each individual with the mechanism or ability to exercise that “right". A “right” is the same thing as an “entitlement".

Which brings us to the Second Amendment and the “right” to keep and bear arms. Since we have established that the government must provide each individual with the mechanism or ability to exercise their “rights", the government is also required to provide me with the mechanism and ability to exercise my Second Amendment “rights". The government is required to provide me with armaments. I want my arms entitlements. Where are my arms that I am entitled to? I have the “right” to keep and bear arms, I am entitled to them just like my healthcare. Every person in America has the “right” (therefore entitlement) to an AR-15 rifle, and I want mine.

Proof of Hillary Clinton's Classified Emails

07/25/15 | by blogger | Categories: Political

Classified

As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton received thousands of classified emails over the 4 years of her tenure. This is normal, all the Secretaries of State send and receive classified materials. Colin Powell received classified material via email but claimed he did not send any, Hillary Clinton makes the same claim.

She says she did not send classified emails at her private mail address, because doing so would be a crime. Ordering her staff, who did not have security clearances, to search the email on her private email server for emails containing classified material (sent or received) would be another crime. Having her staff delete emails containing classified material (sent or received) on her private email server would be another crime. Lying to congress regarding the existence of emails containing classified material on her private email server would be another crime.

Obviously, as Secretary of State for 4 years, Hillary Clinton received emails containing classified materials, the only question is “To which Hillary Clinton email address were those classified materials sent?” A secure government email address? Or her private unsecure email address? As it turns out, this is an easy question to answer, and we can use the email Meta-data to answer it. You do remember meta-data don’t you? That is the information that the NSA gathers on all U.S. citizens without needing a warrant. It is the “public” information that can be searched without fear of invading anyone’s privacy or security.

The State Department email servers have log files of information identifying where all emails are delivered. Any email passing thru a State Department email server will have left a meta-data trail. This meta-data will contain information such as date and time, the sender of the email, the RECIPIENT of the email, the source email server, the DESTINATION email server, etc. So there is a meta-data record of every email sent by anyone in the State Department who sent Hillary Clinton an email, regardless of where her destination email address may have been.

Since proof of a crime in this instance only requires evidence that a classified email was sent to Hillary Clinton at a non-government unsecured location, the only meta-data required is the RECIPIENT email address. And the only recipient email address of interest is Hillary Clinton’s.

Therefore, it would be very easy to search meta-data of the State department email server logs and find any instance of a classified email being sent to Hillary Clinton at a non-government unsecured location.

This meta-data search does not require that any classified information be revealed or obtained. It only requires confirmation that classified information was sent. The results don’t even need to identify date and/or time, only that it happened!

Now that right there is funny, I don’t care who ya are!!!

I think those are called Automatic Train Derailers.

—-

INSTRUCTIONS: Use a pressurized fire hose to anchor the derailing blocks in place on the railroad tracks. Anchor one end of the hose on a fire hydrant (not shown) and the other end to a fire truck. This insures that when a high speed train hits the blocks, the blocks remain in place thus resulting in a successful derailment.
