I didn't 'need' to hear the State of the Union

Insofar as issues swirling around gun and magazine restrictions, I have no problem with debate on the subject; although, I think liberals are focused on the wrong target when they rant about specific pieces of hardware.

They believe the particular weapon idiots carry in their hands is critical. Hardware really doesn’t matter much at all. What is or isn’t between their ears is the real problem.

The most infuriating argument I’ve heard for gun control involves "need." I saw recently somebody making the point that I didn’t "need" an assault weapon or 30-round clip.

Of course I don’t, but what spasm of liberal arrogance deigns to truncate some of my constitutional rights based upon "need?" That’s ridiculous but certainly appropriate of these people.

Did you happen to see Nancy Pelosi’s interview with Chris Wallace? Holy zombie! She’s truly certifiable.

The U.S. Constitution doesn’t bend and sway, furling every which way in the political wind of the moment. It means what it says.

I doubt climate guru Al Gore "needs" a 10,000 square-foot home, but he has every right to own it. That’s as it should be. Good for him.
