Sometimes liberals help US in our fight against THEM! Every now and then one of the idiots will open their mouths and say something so stupid, so absolutely ignorant, that it's a "youtube" moment. Consider what the mental midget and uber-lib Tom "Barkin" Harkin yammered back in January 2010, on ObummerKare.

"What this bill does is we finally take that step. As our leader said earlier, we take that step from healthcare as a privilege to healthcare as an inalienable right of every single American citizen."

Actually, Tom, it's UNalienable, which is the legal version of INalienable. (And you're a LAWYER?)

From the Declaration of Independence:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

All men are endowed with certain UNALIENABLE rights.

Unalienable, adj. - incapable of being repudiated or transferred to another; "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights."

So our Founding Fathers so cherished individual rights, not group rights, not the rights of the collective, but INDIVIDUAL rights, that they literally started off their (and our) Declaration of Independence to King George of Britain with that sentence. We are granted by our Creator, certain UNalienable right Tom, not the US Congress or Senate. Indeed, Tom, note that our Founding Fathers used a capital "C" in Creator, denoting that they held the Creator to be real. An entity. A viable life form. A belief that the "Creator" was a deity responsible for creating the universe and thus, mankind. The Creator HIMSELF gave us those rights. We have the God-given right to pursue Life, Liberty, and our Happiness. Congress does not create life, no, rather, they suck the life OUT of America and Americans through their excessive taxation and regulation. In fact, Tom, the only life Congress gives is to NEW TAXES or NEW entitlement programs for their democrat followers and illegal aliens.

And while we're on the subject of Congress (and the Senate) Tom, let the Gunny remind you that YOU derive your powers from "the consent of the governed." Now since you have such a hard time understanding the word "unalienable", the Gunny will break it down for you in a nutshell. You, Tom, work for us. You, Tom, are answerable to us. And guess what? You ain't measuring up.

We the people, Tom, DO NOT WANT your damned ObummerKare. In fact, we want LESS government, not more. However, YOU and your fellow progressive socialist elites seem to be deaf in that regard. So let the Gunny discuss another particularly important sentence in the above excerpt:

"That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it."

What that means, Tom, is that when you piss us off enough, when you ride roughshod over us enough, when you disregard us, ignore us, and downright trample on our rights, WE the PEOPLE have the RIGHT to replace you. Peacefully it is hoped but with force if necessary.

Tom, as a liberal, there can be no doubt of your abject ignorance and willful disregard of the Constitution and what it means but to the American people, it is still a sacred document and the words of our Founding Fathers still ring true. For example, Tom, Patrick Henry stated: "The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government." That means that things like welfare, social suckurity, the Slaughter Rule, mandated health care, etc, are UNconstitutional. In other words, you and the other liberals in the Congress and the Senate are, in a few words, breaking the frigging law of the land.

You see Tom, you and the other liberals are completely and totally out of step with what our Founding Fathers desired for government. For example, Thomas Jefferson stated in his First Inaugural Address:

"A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicity."

The government shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. Wow, what a concept huh Tom? Yet, you and your fellow liberals TAX the hell out of corporations and then wonder why they leave the US for foreign contries and better tax havens, taking JOBS with them. Like, duh.

Tom, you and your fellow liberals, along with your RINO henchmen (yes, they are every bit as guilty as you are) have trampled on Americans, our rights, and exceeded your authority for far too long. For example, who the HELL is the Congress to involve themselves in steroids in baseball? To investigate CEO's for making a profit? Personally Tom, had the Gunny been the CEO of say Ford, and you morons called for me to testify, the Gunny would have told you to get stuffed, as the Brits put it.

Thomas Jefferson laid out EXACTLY your duties:

"To let the National Government be entrusted with the defense of the nation, and its foreign and federal relations. The State Governments with the Civil Rights, Laws, Police and administration of what concerns the State generally. The Counties with the local concerns, and each ward direct the interests within itself. It is by dividing and subdividing these Republics from the great national one down through all its subordinations until it ends in the administration of everyman's farm by himself, by placing under everyone what his own eye may superintend, that all will be done for the best."

Now the Gunny knows that as a lib, as a progressive, as a statist, as a lackey for wannabe emperor Barry Soetoro, you may not understand that very well so the Gunny will explain it to you.

In a simple sentence, let the frigging states run their own affairs. Liberals like yourself LOVE to refer to the fact that federal law supercedes state law but nothing could be further from the truth. The Tenth Amendment, Tom, gives all power NOT specifically designated to the Feds (by the Constitution), to the States and namely the people. So Tom, you and your fellow liberals are wrong with ObummerKare and just about every other law that you've passed without our consent, that seeks to limit us, tax us, regulate us, that takes the bread out of our mouths, and money out of our pockets, to pay for your damned Nanny State.

Senator Tom Harkin, YOU are NOT my Creator. Congress is NOT my Creator. The Senate is NOT my Creator. And neither is the Narcissistic Nitwit in the White House. YOU and the Federal Government DO NOT give us ANY rights as OUR rights come from God, Jehovah, Buddha, Allah, whatever and whomever one's Creator is. THAT is where our rights come from. YOU and your fellow liberals CANNOT take them away, now or ever.

In closing Tom, the Gunny would like to leave you with one quote from Thomas Jefferson and one from Sam Adams. First, Thomas Jefferson stated:

"This is the tendency of all human governments. A departure from principle becomes a precedent for a second; that second for a third; and so on, till the bulk of society is reduced to mere automatons of misery, to have no sensibilities left but for sinning and suffering... And the fore horse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression." Thomas Jefferson

That is where you have us now. You and your myrmidons have brought America to the edge of ruin with your vast entitlement programs and excessive taxation.

Sam Adams wrote (probably in a vision of today's Congress/Senate/POTUS):

"If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."

You'll have to figure that one out on your own Tom but you're seeing it happen right now.


  1. GunnyG,
    They are sniffing around for a fight. Did you see what Moonbeam Brown said?:

    The MOST telling thing is that Liberals want 26 yo CHILDREN to be covered by their PARENTS under Barrycare?!?!?! I started straining at the apron strings when I was 16! How big of wussies are Liberals?

  2. Georgetwin,

    I saw what Moonbeam said. He's an idiot.

    I enlisted at 17 and could not WAIT to be on my own.

    Liberals are breeding a generation of sissies.

  3. GunnyG,

    One of the few regrets I have is not joining the military. I took the Armed Services Test and was in the 95tj Percentile. The USMC and the AF wanted me BAD! I was in a car accident and had grenstick cracks in several vertebrae which tanked my physical. By the time it healed I had taken another path.

    Btw I am STILL looking for a SEIU goon to get in my face. I can't seem to find any. WHY is that ;)?

  4. It was their loss brother and not a regret for you. You can only regret it if you DODGE it like BJ Bubba did or went traitor like Hanoi John did.

    I laugh about SEIU, especially Barry, Gibbs, and Stern with their purple ties.

  5. GunnyG,

    Are you SURE that those ties are support for SEIU? ANOTHER favorite cause of Barry favors purple altho ;).

  6. Harkin,and ALL these libs are showing the rest of the country(well at least those who can tear themselves away from American Idol long enough)just what abject morons they are. Obama on Faux with Bret Baier last night cemented his image as an empty siut on a petulant little boy. WHAT an equinal sphincter.

  7. Gunny,

    Librats think the meaning of something is whatever fits their agenda at the time. The main reason for the shredding of the Constitution. What amazes me is how many people follow these sorry sap suckers blindly.

    My wife was saying to me the other day she is worried the worst is yet to come. I hope she is wrong, but she seldom is.

  8. GunnyG,
    Head to Towery's thread. allison is saying Condi Rice was NEVER depicted as Aunt Jemima and Black Panthers NEVER intimated voters at a polling place.

  9. Right, Tom.
    But, hey!
    Your "leader" believes there are 57 States, right?
    Boy, you're all a bunch of bright bulbs on the tree....

  10. clyde,

    Bret fed the Moron his lunch. I laughed like hell seeing Barry the Dolt get flustered and angry. Just like a spoiled baby.

  11. Charles,

    When Obummer doesn't get his way, you can bet he's gonna raise hell. Probably through Executive Orders.

  12. buck,

    Well said as usual. I would not give a plugged nickel for the lot of them.

  13. Good stuff, Gunny. Former SSG in the USA, myself. Look forward to more of the same.

  14. Gunny,
    Neal Cavuto's speed reader found the "student loan" bill imbedded in the health care bill. Another takeover.
    Also the reader said he can't get the numbers to add up.

    By the way this was an MOST EXCELLENT post. You should have moved from TH a long time ago!!

  15. infidelzealot,

    Welcome to the fight brother. You'll get your wish, I've declared war on Liberalism and liberals.

    One Team, One Fight.

  16. Nanna,

    I SAW THAT about the student loans. Talk about deciding WHO goes to college and where. Sounds like the old soviet union to me.

  17. Methinks these liberals really are itching for a fight. The quote from Sam Adams is right on target. The question is, what is the tipping point? How long will the good people of this county sit by and watch their freedoms stripped from them?
    Anybody silly enough to listen to Harkin and appreciate his comments must also remember that any "right" that a man can give can also be taken away.

    "It's not an endlessly expanding list of rights — the 'right' to education, the 'right' to health care, the 'right' to food and housing. That's not freedom, that's dependency. Those aren't rights, those are the rations of slavery — hay and a barn for human cattle." -P.J. O'Rourke

  18. Gunny,
    I think this is your best post yet. Tom Harkin is one of these parasites that has been in office for FAR too long. He needs to go, period. Sadly, I know too well what a pile of dog squeeze he is... I'm from Iowa orginally. The people there are quite conservative in reality, yet they keep voting for knuckleheads like him, over and over.

  19. Georgetwin,

    who are we going to beleive, Towery or our lying eyes. They also protrayed her as a parrot with very large lips. (Oliphant).

  20. rikdergis,

    I love that quote from PJ. Good post, thx.

  21. JoseyWales,

    Well, I don't blame Iowans in particular. Barkin Harkin tells good lies and the people, who are for the most part honest people, believe him. Just look at Zero and HIS lies. His cultists love him for it.

  22. Gunny- the DIM-o-crats howled in 2005 about the GOPs "arrogance of power" when they tried to change a rule on a filibuster--Now how can the DIMS justify this "slaughtering" of the US constitution??

  23. 8th,

    It's funny huh? And they can't see the hypocrisy of it!

  24. hey Gunny I just heard if the parlemtarian decides the laguage of the bill is not clear it has to go back--that is good for US because then the DARK-rats will have to have 60 votes (this is Mike the Pirate--commenter on TH)

  25. About liberal hypocrisy... Gunny, they DO see it. That's the thing; it's OK because their goals have "us" in mind. "Bush was wrong for doing ____, while Barry Ballsack Obama is 100% justified because ______ fits my agenda."

    Make no mistake, liberals know exactly how to lie and "move goal posts". Where are the anti-war protesters? Oh, I forgot... when BO orders more troops to fight, it's OK. They (libtards) think people are too stupid to have noticed. I noticed. I call them out every chance I get... the responses are usually blaming Bush for the war. It pains me to try to rationalise with people who can't think, or just follow one party or leader blindly.

    I love your blog and thank you for serving our country. Next time I see my friends, I'm going to tell them about this awesome site. Keep writing, I'll keep reading!

  26. Hey Gunny! Found your site again! Now I can get my daily dose of reality. Check out Harkin (Iowa). He claimed, some years ago, to be a no shit war hero in 'Nam. The truth was a long way from his story. Can he called on 'Stolen Valor'? Keep up tyhe good work!
