Restoring the Second Amendment, Habeus Corpus and Civil Rights

Today was a good day for liberty.

Yes - a small victory in a sea of FISA, wiretaps, and amendment violations galore. This was a small step to legalizing the constitution.

These individual (implicit/god given right to self defense where the second amendment enumerated again the right to stave off authoritarians) firearms rights makes this a lot harder to pull off:

Fidel and Raul Castro shooting someone extra judicially. Notice the victim here is unarmed.

The Second Amendment means the same thing if you write:

Ronald McDonald likes to make hamburgers, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

Or, as the opinion states:

Logic demands that there be a link between the stated purpose and the command. The Second Amendment would be nonsensical if it read, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to petition for redress of grievances shall not be infringed." That requirement of logical connection may cause a prefatory clause to resolve an ambiguity in the operative clause ("The separation of church and state being an important objective, the teachings of canons shall have no place in our jurisprudence." The preface makes clear that the operative clause refers not to canons of interpretation but to clergymen.) But apart from that clarifying function, a prefatory clause does not limit or expand the scope of the operative clause.

There are NO COLLECTIVE RIGHTS. They do not exist. The Militia Act of 1792 says if you do not have a rifle and 20 rounds for that rifle you are breaking a federal law at this moment. This militia is the unorganized militia, and between the federalist papers, the state constitutions, the US Federal Constitution and a lot of early tests in the new Republic, it was a RIGHT, it is your right , the government has a limitation in power than is cannot take the implicit/god given rights away, and its ENUMERATED again, apparently the framers had the foresight to realize tyranny would again rule the day.

Lets review where SHALL NOT is used elsewhere in the Constitution.

Section 9
The privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended

Amendment 4
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Amendment 8
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

Amendment 9
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment 15
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.

Amendment 19
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.

Amendment 26
The right of citizens of the United States, who are eighteen years of age or older, to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of age.

Regulated at the time more or less meant 'well trained.' They WANTED a large group of pissed off minutemen to get rid of a tyrannical regime.

I case one hasn't noticed, piles of rifles really make life difficult for our invading army in Iraq, maybe we should consider doing the same thing to this illegal terrorist government.

"The right of the people to keep and bear Arms SHALL NOT be infringed."

62%+ in this CNN poll agreed with SCOTUS ruling:

Not that I need a democratic consensus in a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC, but gun grabbers are wrong and are bordering on treason.

All too many of the other great tragedies of history--Stalin's atrocities, the killing fields of Cambodia, the Holocaust, to name but a few--were perpetrated by armed troops against unarmed populations. Many could well have been avoided or mitigated, had the perpetrators known their intended victims were equipped with a rifle and twenty bullets apiece, as the Militia Act required here. If a few hundred Jewish fighters in the Warsaw Ghetto could hold off the Wehrmacht for almost a month with only a handful of weapons, six million Jews armed with rifles could not so easily have been herded into cattle cars.

My excellent colleagues have forgotten these bitter lessons of history. The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime routinely do. But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed--where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.

-- Alex Kozinski, U.S. Circuit Judge, 9th District.

The Fed devalues the dollar such that purchasing power is half of what it was in 2005, and the SCOTUS gives back an enumerated right that neither the state nor the Federal government ever had the right to take away, and there are still people pissed about the guns *not* still being banned in a place where violent and gun crime are through the despite the gun ban.

From the opinion.
Undoubtedly some think that the Second Amendment is outmoded in a society where our standing army is the pride of our Nation, where well-trained police forces provide personal security, and where gun violence is a serious problem. That is perhaps debatable, but what is not debatable is that it is not the role of this Court to pronounce the Second Amendment extinct.

We affirm the judgment of the Court of Appeals
Why we need to have power with the people, check out Death By Government:

Cathy L Lanier, the Police Chief in DC [She is already in deep shit by creating military checkpoints and forcing citizens to check in and out of neighborhoods as if she and the illegal police goons are the Schutzstaffel], said that they would work up a spate of legislation to defy the Supreme Court, and would be arresting people despite the ruling. If you shot this woman and claimed you were ridding our country of a Democratic terrorist, I would let you off or hang the jury if I was on your Jury. These police officers never read the 14th Amendment's Equal Proteciton of Laws clause.

Lanier: While the policies are being revised, Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier said, officers who find handguns in residents' homes will "use their discretion" about whether to arrest the owners.

"no state shall… deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

"What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms."
~ Thomas Jefferson

"And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the Press, or the rights of Conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms; ..."
Samuel Adams

"Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence ... from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable ... the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."
George Washington

"To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them."
Richard Henry Lee

"The great object is that every man be armed." and "Everyone who is able may have a gun."
Patrick Henry

"Those who hammer their guns into plowshares will plow for those who do not."
Thomas Jefferson

"Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?"
Patrick Henry

"The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that ... it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; ... "
Thomas Jefferson

"The best we can help for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed."
Alexander Hamilton

"The greatest danger to American freedom is a government that ignores the Constitution."
Thomas Jefferson

Jefferson knew what he was doing when he decided we need to be able to defend ourselves from government, and be the instrument of change and overthrow a corrupt government if and when it happens? He was right. The government should not feel it can walk into our homes and take control. The government should ALWAYS have to fear that such acts would be a significant risk.

Please also note the leading cause of childhood deaths is drowning in pools. Guns dont even register.

Doctors are better at killing you by accident than guns are on purpose ...

Total number of gun deaths in the U.S. in 2005: 31,000

Total number of deaths in the U.S. from medical errors in 2005: 44,000-98,000

The total gun deaths (acccidental and non-accidental) were still lower than the lowest estimate of deaths due to medical errors, with most of the medical errors stemming from flawed paperwork and medication administration.

Accidental gun deaths are below 1,000 a year. In 2005, last year they have numbers for, accidental firearms deaths numbered 789, according to the CDC WISQARS Mortality Reports.

So now that we have the right to guns, when do we get rid of the free-speech zones and get a vote in congress?

At the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on September 18, 1787, a Mrs. Powel anxiously awaited the results, and as Benjamin Franklin emerged from the long task now finished, asked him directly: "Well Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" "A republic if you can keep it" responded Franklin.

MySQL: The worst of OpenSOURCE, The maintainers and copyright holders should be jailed and after put into a pillory where feces are thrown at them

Hello. If you are a maintainer or employee of the MySQL project within Sun, I want you to you to suffer horribly. I really do. I want you tarred and feathered and I want you in a public pillory so I can kick you.

If I don’t see mysql-4.1.24.tar.gz on a mirror soon, you are the worst form of scum. I got the “free” bkf client. I got your 4.1.24 tag. I got everything right. However, I noticed that your source repository has some rather critical files missing. This is disgusting. If Microsoft ever held the world hostage with pay-for updates for bugs they would be decried! However, you hold the world hostage with your bugs. For this you deserve to suffer. MySQL stole contributions from the public domain to try and greedily secure licenses. Since your software has no warranty, then you have no license, and you have no right to call you code stolen if I make derivative works. I’m not modifying your piece of shit database, I’m “using it,” and there is nothing you can do to “enforce” your license because you stole code from the public and held it hostage, and you hold both private and national security hostage with pay-for-bug-fixes. Criminals. Criminals. I seriously would like slash all the tires of all the pig-fucking MySQL developers who work for Sun now. This virus licensing shit has to stop. If I was supreme dictator, I would revoke all licenses for “copyrighted” shit if you hold the world hostage for bugfixes or stop maintaining the code. That’s it. If its unmaintained or buggy, its no longer yours. It turns BSD-free-for-all so engineers can fix the world without you rat bastard fucking marketing and bean counting fuck-pigs destroying our planet one fucking bug at time. Pigs.

For this you deserve severe punishment. Also, MySQL should be sued by the FSF for using the words GPL anywhere on the MySQL site. MYSQL STOLE all contributed code when they switched the license. This was done in bad faith and if you think I’ll every pay you a god damn dime you can choke on cock, I’ll just switch to Postgres - but MySQL simply pissed me off on the way.

To all GPL Nazis, fuck you, I ignore your impossible to enforce license and treat everything as LGPL, and I use the Nvidia binary driver. HAHAHAHAH. How about that, fuckers? And you made no money doing this, and you have no honor.

Your ass, in sterns, now.

America at its Best, The Economist.

The Economist. 6/7/2008. "America at its Best" (Pictures McCain and Obama) I hoped the meant, "America at its best ??? " - They didn't.

June 7th 2008

America at its best (Proper Title: "America at its best ?????????????"
The primaries have left the United States with a decent choice; now it needs a proper debate about policies: leader

Please write into THE ECONOMIST. You'd think it should be called the propagandist.

These two clowns, and HRC, are the worst pieces of sell out trash in American history.

The day after clinching, Obama kowtows to the AIPAC.

McCain is a disgrace. Covering up information on POWS, one of the Keating 5 scum from the S&L crisis, if Kerry flip flops, then this guy is the King of all FLIP FLOPS. This man is a stupid, uninformed MORON, and his predisency will make Bush's look good. He once sung "Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran" to the tune of the beach boys Barabar Ann. He is a civil liberty CRUSHING GUN GRABBER, rated F-- by the GOA.

I hate to use something from Soros (whom I hate), but here:
(McCain has done this several times in several forums. War for him is a funny subject apparently.)

GOA McCain, F--

Anyways, I could admonish on McCain forever. He is a phony, a spineless whimp, and he betrayed the US as a POW, there were lots of POWs, but hardly any of them wrote the anti-American commie screeds like McCain did so believably and with such fervor (there is a Switft Boat movement against McCain, but the information around the issue is classified, and his swift boat vets are silenced completely). Little McCain wanted to save his skin, there was no honor. You know now that McCain will drape himself in the flag so calling him on his gun grabbing anti-American totalitarian authoritarian legacy will likely result in YOU being called a anti-American and your patriotism will be questioned. He will most likely not be swift boated as he deserves. Hanoi Jane there is, Hanoi McCain there will not be. I wonder why is it that the soldiers and the patriots buy propaganda to support those who are constantly willing to expose the military servicemen to MORTAL DANGER.

And Obama. Change. What changes we dont know (He doesnt either, it was obvious he didnt write the speech to the AIPAC). This could go either way, but bombing Iran seems to crop up on his agenda. He predends to not take lobby money, but he has surrounded himself with HIGHLY connected people who, while not taking money from companies, will certainly be at the behest of the Medical Industrial Complex. Look to natural and herbal medicine, off label use, and non-western medicines to be CRUSHED TO DEATH under his legacy.

These two are the death of individual liberty, the death of the middle class. Neither have once made a fucking PEEP about America being completely INSOLVENT, BROKE, OUT OF MONEY and in HUGE FISCAL CRISIS due to the fiat DOLLAR being near COLLAPSE. "They" dont care, they think militarism can still save them.

They want to spend money bombing Iran, playing world police and further making the under classes entirely dependant on the government for everything every day.

Fuck "The Economist" for this disgusting garbage propagandist cover.

Ron Paul for me. I refuse to partake in the systematic establisment of the Orwellian Oceania with Ingsoc as the guiding idealogy.

Read 1984. Now. This eventuality was pegged 60 years ago.

These people represent PEOPLE as an AGGREGATE TERM, there is no personal liberty, there is no individualism.

This represents oligarchal collectivism, mega-corporations, and the military industrial complex.

CHANGE. Indeed. For the worse. If you dont believe me, look at the fight the Democrats put up against Bush in the last 2 years.

CHANGE. Higher taxes through inflation. Less disposable income. Less middle class. Less liberty. Fear being used to allow power grabs to protect your security.

You are property of the United States of America, Inc.

Ingsoc is oligarchical collectivism - Ingsoc rejects and vilifies every principle for which the Socialist movement originally stood, and it does so in the name of Socialism.

The empirical method of thought, on which all the scientific achievements of the past were founded, is opposed to the most fundamental principles of Ingsoc.

The problem was how to keep the wheels of industry turning without increasing the real wealth of the world.

Goods must be produced, but they need not be distributed. And in practice the only way of achieving this was by continuous warfare.

War, it will be seen, accomplishes the necessary destruction, but accomplishes it in a psychologically acceptable way. In principle it would be quite simple to waste the surplus labour of the world by building temples and pyramids, by digging holes and filling them up again, or even by producing vast quantities of goods and then setting fire to them. But this would provide only the economic and not the emotional basis for a hierarchical society. What is concerned here is not the morale of masses, whose attitude is unimportant so long as they are kept steadily at work, but the morale of the Party itself. Even the humblest Party member is expected to be competent, industrious, and even intelligent within narrow limits, but it is also necessary that he should be a credulous and ignorant fanatic whose prevailing moods are fear, hatred, adulation, and orgiastic triumph. In other words it is necessary that he should have the mentality appropriate to a state of war. It does not matter whether the war is actually happening, and, since no decisive victory is possible, it does not matter whether the war is going well or badly. All that is needed is that a state of war should exist. The splitting of the intelligence which the Party requires of its members, and which is more easily achieved in an atmosphere of war, is now almost universal, but the higher up the ranks one goes, the more marked it becomes. It is precisely in the Inner Party that war hysteria and hatred of the enemy are strongest. In his capacity as an administrator, it is often necessary for a member of the Inner Party to know that this or that item of war news is untruthful, and he may often be aware that the entire war is spurious and is either not happening or is being waged for purposes quite other than the declared ones: but such knowledge is easily neutralized by the technique of doublethink. Meanwhile no Inner Party member wavers for an instant in his mystical belief that the war is real, and that it is bound to end victoriously, with Oceania the undisputed master of the entire world. All members of the Inner Party believe in this coming conquest as an article of faith. It is to be achieved either by gradually acquiring more and more territory and so building up an overwhelming preponderance of power, or by the discovery of some new and unanswerable weapon. The search for new weapons continues unceasingly, and is one of the very few remaining activities in which the inventive or speculative type of mind can find any outlet. In Oceania at the present day, Science, in the old sense, has almost ceased to exist. In Newspeak there is no word for " Science ". The empirical method of thought, on which all the scientific achievements of the past were founded, is opposed to the most fundamental principles of Ingsoc [Ingsoc is oligarchical collectivism - Ingsoc rejects and vilifies every principle for which the Socialist movement originally stood, and it does so in the name of Socialism]. And even technological progress only happens when its products can in some way be used for the diminution of human liberty. In all the useful arts the world is either standing still or going backwards. The fields are cultivated with horse-ploughs while books are written by machinery. But in matters of vital importance - meaning, in effect, war and police espionage - the empirical approach is still encouraged, or at least tolerated. - George Orwell, 1984

The new aristocracy was made up for the most part of bureaucrats, scientists, technicians, trade-union organizers, publicity experts, sociologists, teachers, journalists, and professional politicians. These people, whose origins lay in the salaried middle class and the upper grades of the working class, had been shaped and brought together by the barren world of monopoly industry and centralized government. As compared with their opposite numbers in past ages, they were less avaricious, less tempted by luxury, hungrier for pure power, and, above all, more conscious of what they were doing and more intent on crushing opposition. - George Orwell, 1984

The alteration of the past is necessary for two reasons, one of which is subsidiary and, so to speak, precautionary. The subsidiary reason is that the Party member, like the proletarian, tolerates present-day conditions partly because he has no standards of comparison. He must be cut off from the past, just as he must be cut off from foreign countries, because it is necessary for him to believe that he is better off than his ancestors and that the average level of material comfort is constantly rising. But by far the more important reason for the readjustment of the past is the need to safeguard the infallibility of the Party. It is not merely that speeches, statistics, and records of every kind must be constantly brought up to date in order to show that the predictions of the Party were in all cases right. It is also that no change in doctrine or in political alignment can ever be admitted. For to change one's mind, or even one's policy, is a confession of weakness. If, for example, Eurasia or Eastasia (whichever it may be) is the enemy today, then that country must always have been the enemy. And if the facts say otherwise then the facts must be altered. Thus history is continuously rewritten. This day-to-day falsification of the past, carried out by the Ministry of Truth, is as necessary to the stability of the regime as the work of repression and espionage carried out by the Ministry of Love. [The Ministry of Love's charter is to enforce loyalty and love of Big Brother through fear, torture, and brainwashing - maybe even waterboarding.] - George Orwell, 1984
