I'm not trying to be a fearmonger or conspiracy theorist, but I get a slight sense of dread when I think of the new administration. The president has stated that he supports a permanent assault weapons ban, and part of the hundreds of billions of our dollars he would hand out as part of his stimulus package includes more welfare. I don't pay much in taxes, as I don't make much, but I get angry. I don't understand why liberals are concerned with how much the richest 1% in the country own. It's the American dream. What kind of scum really thinks it's okay to redistribute wealth? Get a job!! If I wanted to, i could go in to the hospital and get 100% disability for hearing and brain injury from a cumulative(sp) effect of explosions throughout my 39 months in Iraq. I know this, because people in my unit who have been through much less have done so. I can't bring myself to do it. It's disgusting to take money from citizens that you don't earn. If I had my way, some members of my family would lose their welfare because they are lazy welfare whores and I have told them so. I don't feel that I should have any more privileges than anyone else, but I posed a question on President Obama's suggestion website. The question I posed was how can they justify denying me the ability to own a civilian version of the rifle I have carried while serving my nation for over a decade. I still have not received a reply. This is a rant, so Marvin or Quinton, feel free to delete it, but I had to get it out.
