Check the news on Obama speech in CA to the wealthy liberals. He slammed small town America for believing in God, gun owners and hunting.

Speaking of Obama and America, I know this is a strech but in a strange way it is related.

Never trust anyone who bowls under 40.

Since the OP isn't proposing anything activism-related in regards to these comments, I don't think this really belongs in the Activism forum. Perfect for APS though.

Funny he removed his plan for "reasonable common sense" plan for gun control. All of the sudden it not found.
I remember one of his plans was to ban FFLs from selling in a five mile radius from parks and schools...
So the only place to buy a gun is in the mojave desert somewhere.

"You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them," Obama said. "And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations." Obama

For those of us too lazy to click links. Funny how these people who "cling to guns and religon" are (in general) the most well-adjusted people I've met.

Any sense of enjoyment I had from seeing the Clintons finally being criticized is rapidly fading with the reality that B. Hussein Osama, er, Obama, may actually become Der Fuhrer. I mean uh, president.

And as to the point of banning FFLs within 5 miles of shcools? I can remember my elementary school principal shooting a percussion muzzleloader in the school parking lot for a demonstration of "colonial technology" right before Thanksgiving break. I was probably the only 3rd grader there who thought he should have used a matchlock to be more historically accurate :D

Just like 2004 - I think middle America picks this one.

(Hopefully no silly gun bans become some new presidents agenda!)

Democrats or Republicans it all the same. Just choose the rights you want to lose first.

No, that's him doing damage control, trying to refine and rework the speech. He's got small-town Pennsylvanians in the San Francisco speech before a bunch of Volvo liberal campaign donors sounding like cave people, but there in Terre Haute he tried to flip it back around. If those people in Indiana had heard his speech in San Francisco beforehand, I'm fairly sure you could have heard a pin drop after he got done.

That's right! His statements in CA very much resemble these:
Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people. Karl Marx

I think Obama has really shot himself in the foot on this one. His comments have come off as extremely elitist. We all know these liberals are like this but now we have proof. They are screaming I am better and know better than you so I can rule your life. I live seeing him squirm now trying to "re-state" or "clarify" what he said to mean something totally different.

His main belief in everything is that government should fix everything for everyone and that people have no ability to improve themselves. What a joke.

This so-called "change wave" he was riding will soon break on the shores. His true colors are coming out. By the time October comes around, we will be saying "Obama who?"

John Wayne:

When I was a high school principal in northern Michigan, our physics teacher and his brother brought their authentic Civil War mortar to the high school property. They and the students applied physics to dropping mortar rounds onto a makeshift “outhouse” that they constructed on the day before. As I recall, they achieved a direct-hit on the second attempt from about 200 yards out. The first attempt landed with-in 8 feet. As he and his brother clarified for the students, the fact that first round did not make a "direct impact” was inconsequential at the receiving end. He clarified, that in a real-life situation, the soldiers would have been using a black powder-packed ball, with a fuse that ignites on being launched. The round would have burst about 50 feet above the ground target, and the air-blast and fragments would have taken out everything with-in at the very least 50 feet.

I call that "applied academics".

As I sit here very seriously contemplating leaving being a graduate professor to return to being a superintendent, I will state unequivocally, I would form and lead an "Apple Seed type club, or a CMP" type club. In addition, I would return to instructing hunter safety courses.

Not only do firearms have a place with-in 5 miles of a school, they have a very appropriate place in school, in the way of a formal process. Wow, I do not fit the typical educator mentality, do I?!
