Today it seems some Mayors and local elected officials have forgotten what their job really is. Emperor Bloomberg of New York City apparently thinks he knows best in all things from diet to smoking to gun ownership. In reality he is just a spoiled little rich guy with a Napoleon complex. Why the people of New York put up with this clown is beyond my comprehension.
singer/songwriter James Taylor said in a recent interview that maybe it
would be best if we all just gave up some of our freedoms for the good
of the many. I think this moronic interview had something to do with gun
ownership. Whatever. I don’t think people like Taylor would like it
very much if the socialist utopia they see in their pea brains actually
came to pass and they had to live there. When they faced the reality
that their wealth would be taken from them for “the good of the many,”
they might have a different opinion of utopia.
state and local governments seem to be getting tired of being dictated
to by the Feds. All across the country several states are crafting laws
in an effort to stifle the heavy hand of Washington. Laws are being
passed easing gun regulation and specifically neutering new Federal gun
laws. Texas has passed a law making it illegal for any police agency to
enforce any new Federal law restricting gun ownership or possession. The
officer could be arrested. Utah has passed a law making it lawful for
any legal citizen of Utah who was otherwise not restricted by previous
convictions, to carry a weapon openly or concealed with no permit
required. Many other states are busily working on new laws to control
state officials are overtly inviting businesses to move their
operations out of the heavily taxed states to more business friendly
areas. Texas is leading the way offering special consideration to gun
makers and ammunition producers as well as other businesses. And it’s
working. Texas now is the fastest growing state in the Union. California
and other big tax states are losing jobs and revenue from this exodus.
right-to-work states are siphoning off companies and jobs by offering
automakers and airplane builders a much more business friendly
is trying to get pro golfer Phil Mickelson to move from California to
save big on his state income taxes. Florida already leads the way for
many wealthy people’s southward move because of the absence of a state
income tax. Imagine if you made a million dollars a year and you could
save ten percent by just moving to a different state. What would you do?

issue facing us today is the runaway monolithic reach of governments.
We are a free people. Government is the servant of the people.
Representatives, Senators, and Presidents are hired civil servants who
are hired by the people to do the business of government. We are their
boss, not the other way around. They have a book of rules, a manual of
operations you might say. It is called the U.S. Constitution. We have in
place a system to deal with the great issues we face. All we need and
all we have ever needed is for all of us, and that includes the
government, to follow the rules and obey the law. Let the only special
interest be the good of the American people. When that simple rule is
followed, life will be much simpler for all of us.
