VIN SUPRYNOWICZ: Obama ‘bitterly clinging’ to his fake gun numbers

*** begin quote ***

“ATF Special Agent William Newell tells Fox News that between 2007 and 2008, around 11,000 guns used in Mexican crimes appeared to come from the United States and were submitted to the ATF for tracing. Of those, only 6,000 could be successfully traced. Of those, only 5,114, according to testimony in Congress by William Hoover, were found to have come from the United States.

“Obama’s ’90 percent’ number refers, not to the percentage of ‘guns recovered in Mexico,’ as Obama claims, but to the ‘percent of the traced firearms’ according to an ATF spokeswoman.

“Mexican authorities report that in those two years, a total of 29,000 guns were recovered at ‘crime scenes.’ That means 68 percent of the guns recovered by Mexican police did not even appear to come from the United States. That means only 5,114 out of 29,000 guns used in Mexican crimes were found to have come from the United States,” the Libertarians conclude. “That figure would be 17 percent, not the 90 percent repeated by Obama.

During his term in the Senate, Obama earned an “F” rating from Gun Owners of America, as well as from the National Rifle Association. In an April 11, 2008, campaign speech in San Francisco, Obama claimed gun owners are simply “bitter,” racist people who “cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them.”

“Obama is ‘bitterly clinging’ to falsified numbers, hoping he can take away the constitutional rights of ‘people who aren’t like’ him,” The Libertarian Party concludes.

Guns are a right.

But Spooner was right, the Constitution is powerless.

We ordered a bed and scheduled delivery. When we bought it, the sales person said that we’d get a call the night before with a four hour window. OK!

Night before at 9:30PM and no call, I called the store, no answer. At 10PM, we get a call promising 1-4PM delivery.

4:30PM No delivery.

I call the store and get put on hold. She comes back on and says they’ll be here in about an hour. (Too bad if we had plans and commitments.) I complain and I get an attitude. I say “reschedule”. She says: “The paperwork says you have to be home all day!” “barbara streisand” I ask for a manager. “He’s going to tell you the same thing.” I insist; hold. She comes back on “Manager not available; he’ll call you when he can!” Argh!

I wouldn’t do business with them again. You shouldn’t either.
