Contact representatives in opposition to proposals banning concealed carry in State Capitol

NOTE: HR 3 has been set for a hearing in House Judiciary at 1:30pm this Wednesday!

Senate Resolution 1 and House Resolution 3 by Sen. Peter Wirth (D – Santa Fe) and Rep. Brian Egolf (D – Santa Fe) have been introduced in the 2014 session to amend Senate and House rules and ban the carrying of firearms by anyone except a law enforcement officer almost everywhere in the State Capitol. This includes persons licensed to carry a concealed handgun by the State of New Mexico.

Normally, bills which don’t relate to the budget are not germane to the 30-day session and therefore not eligible for consideration. Absent a message from the Governor, they are usually never even debated. But certain types of measures — including constitutional amendments, resolutions and memorials — do not need an executive message and may be considered during the fiscal session. This includes SR 1 and HR 3.

More often than not, committee hearings run late into the evenings during both the 30 and 60-day sessions held in odd-numbered years. Citizens who come to the Capitol to participate in the legislative process often have to return to their parked vehicles well after dark. While we commend the work the New Mexico State Police do to keep the Capitol complex secure, we simply cannot — and should not — be made to rely on them for our own personal security.

SR 1 has been referred to the Senate Rules Committee. Please contact committee members and urge them to oppose SR 1 for the reasons stated above. (Link to Senate Rules Committee)

HR 3 has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee. Please contact committee members and urge them to oppose HR 3 for the same reasons. (Link to House Judiciary Committee)

Mongooses is the plural of mongoose, but I’ve often wondered why it isn’t mongeese.  according to authoritative books and manuals there are thirty-three species:

Epoxied To Politics — Tea Party Sticking To Its Principles

Is this good news from bad messengers?

The following article comes from Brietbart’s Big Government.  Taken from the writings of a couple of progressive “misses,” the message seems to be good news for Tea Party sorts and regular conservatives, but perhaps not so much for liberals, progressives and main-stream or establishment Republicans.

Of course being progressives from Harvard, the originators of the supposition of a long-lived Tea Party movement had to insert their obligatory thoughts (opinions?) about radicalism and prejudice against minorities among the Tea Party members. We know by now that that old dog won’t hunt and never has.

Just below is the first part of the Brietbart piece followed by a link to the rest and links to related articles.

HARVARD PROF: TEA PARTY NOT GOING ANYWHERE, MORE LIKELY TO WIN

by TONY LEE 29 Dec 2013

A government and sociology professor at Harvard writes that the Tea Party is more likely than not to “win in the end” in an age when Americans are becoming more removed from Washington and distrusting the federal government and their elected officials.

“Tea Party forces will still win in the end,” Theda Skocpol writes, unless moderate Republicans can defeat them. Skocpol concedes that the Tea Party “will triumph just by hanging on long enough” as Americans are getting fed up by “our blatantly manipulated democracy and our permanently hobbled government.”

The article, “Why The Tea Party Isn’t Going Anywhere,” was first published in the journal Democracy, and later reprinted in The Atlantic.

Despite the fact that Democrats, the mainstream media, and the Republican establishment again were predicting the “demise of the Tea Party” immediately after the government shutdown ended, Skocpol doesn’t believe so.

“But we have heard all this before,” she writes. “The Tea Party’s hold on the GOP persists beyond each burial ceremony.”

Skocpol and Vanessa Williamson published a book in 2011 that “showed how bottom-up and top-down forces intersect to give the Tea Party both leverage over the Republican Party and the clout to push national politics sharply to the right.”

“At the grassroots, volunteer activists formed hundreds of local Tea Parties, meeting regularly to plot public protests against the Obama Administration and place steady pressure on GOP organizations and candidates at all levels,” they found. “At least half of all GOP voters sympathize with this Tea Party upsurge.”

Though Skokpol and Williamson have their typical biases and describe the Tea Party movement as a “radical” one that may not like minorities–without any evidence of that assertion–they acknowledge that “even though there is no one center of Tea Party authority—indeed, in some ways because there is no one organized center—the entire gaggle of grassroots” and outside groups that support the movement “wields money and primary votes to exert powerful pressure on Republican officeholders and candidates.”

How Liberals Argue

(VIDEO) How Liberals Argue

This short, 7 minute video is absolutely hilarious and if you’ve ever argued politics with a liberal you’ll recognize all of the tactics shown on this video, while you’re laughing out loud!

This scene is a microcosm of how liberals seek to silence the opposition by censorship and leveling personal attacks while avoiding the issues at hand. It further elucidates their ignorance of the issues, their bad habits of changing the subject during the debate, and their wild self-constructed fantasies of the world at large.

Larry P. Arnn is the president of Hillsdale College and has been since the year 2000.  He often lectures on the United States Constitution and other founding documents of this nation.

Dr Arnn was interviewed by Hugh Hewitt the day after the election in November on whether Conservative should forget about participating in the governance of our nation.  Dr. Arnn reasons we cannot get out of the game of politics and forfeit the trophies that would fundamentally change our system of government.

Who Won The Debate

Who won the debate this evening.  I have my opinion, but I suppose there is little need to express my it.

I will say, judging from this image … Obama won the stalking contest:

But, he didn’t come close to closing the gap from the last debate.

In New Hampshire Dead People & Zombies May Vote

This came by way of Ralph Hill.  You may want to donate to Project Veritas since progressives hate the organization and the Demos in New Mexico are fighting against Voter ID with all they have:

Dead People Or Zombies Get Ballots In New Hampshire

That’s “Live Free Or Die.” & And vote whether you’re dead or not!.

Do yourself a favor and access the “Related Articles,” found below and especially the last three to hear the progressive and socialist bloggers and those that comment there squeal like a pig caught in a gate.  By the way, their governor recently vetoed a Voter ID bill.  Wonder why — go figure!

Another thing.  I’m surprised Media Matters is so far out this one, but they may show up yet.  Most all of the progressive blogs and their commenters talk about “dumb,” O’Keefe and many purport to know the law in New Hampshire, along with federal law which may apply. We’ll see, I guess, but I have to believe he has someone (perhaps New Hampshire’s AG) protecting his back and that this was a sanctioned undercover investigation.
