Triple Crown of Right Wing Porn!

This is an editorial piece in today's edition of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch -or as BEP would call it, "Pravda."

Concerns recent legislative activity in the Missouri State House:

http://www.stltoday.com/news/opinion...eb3189e4b.html

Editorial: Missouri House wins the triple crown of right-wing porn

Let’s leave it to Sen. Brian Nieves, R-Washington, to put into perspective what happened Wednesday night in the Missouri House.

“I just passed the most Hard Core 2nd Amendment Bill, perhaps in the country,” Mr. Nieves tweeted, after the House sent House Bill 436, sponsored by Rep. Doug Funderburk, R-St. Peters, to the governor with a veto-proof margin.

How hard core is the so-called “Second Amendment Preservation Act”?
The bill seeks to nullify any and all past and future federal laws that might infringe upon Missouri’s interpretation of the Second Amendment, which is very different from the Supreme Court’s and which can be summarized thusly: Anything goes.

Seriously. Anything.

The bill — which, if not vetoed, will clearly be ruled unconstitutional on multiple grounds and will never actually become law — seeks to nullify even the 1938 Federal Firearms Act. That law, among other things, made it illegal for criminals to transport weapons across state lines.

Welcome to Missouri, felons. You’re free to do what you wish. But beware, law enforcement officers: It will be a crime now in Missouri (theoretically) for you to take a gun from a criminal.

The House (and the Senate, which had already passed the bill), didn’t stop there. It also passed two of Mr. Nieves’ bills based purely on conspiracy theories. The first, Senate Bill 267, while never mentioning Sharia Law specifically, is meant to solve a nonexistent problem in Missouri, the application of any “foreign” laws that might be “repugnant” to the state in the court system.

The law exists solely to send an anti-Muslim message. It’s hateful. It’s repugnant on its face. It passed with nearly every Republican in the Missouri Legislature voting for it.

The second bill of Mr. Nieves’ that was sent to the governor, SB 265, makes it illegal to enforce a United Nations’ resolution called Agenda 21 that has no force of law anyway. It’s one of the right-wing’s goofiest conspiracies, that jack-booted U.N. forces under the banner of “environmental sustainability” are going to come into Missouri and tell us how to live and, as part of the process, literally take our land using eminent domain.

The goal of Agenda 21, adopted by the U.N. in 1992, is to encourage countries to worry about the future of the planet. It’s purely voluntary. The United States (which barely recognizes climate change) hasn’t signed on to it.

Still, nearly every Missouri Republican voted to make it illegal to enforce a directive which has no power of law and never will.

What makes the entire Wednesday night agenda more absurd is that the House actually had something serious to talk about: education reform. But Speaker Tim Jones, R-Eureka, didn’t bother to start the education discussion until after taking meaningless votes on fantasy bills that will never have any effect on a single job or constitutional right for any Missourian, ever.

The education bill, SB 125, was supposed to be Mr. Jones’ priority, yet he couldn’t pass even the most watered-down version. Keep in mind, much of the bill mimics what the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is already doing in terms of implementing teacher evaluations. Other parts of the bill were very bad. We’re glad it died.

But the discussion was important. Mr. Jones didn’t even let the opponents speak.

Perhaps some of them were wearing blue and he thought they were undercover spies for the U.N.

If you’re wondering how this happens in an actual legislative body, it’s helpful to study Mr. Nieves’ history.

When he ran for the Senate in 2010, the Republican leadership supported his primary opponents, correctly identifying him as an ideological extremist. After winning, Mr. Nieves was accused in a police report by a Republican political operative of holding him in his office against his will, throwing him up against the wall and threatening him with a gun.

Talk about hard core.

Now Mr. Nieves is in Republican leadership, and his paranoid delusions are being passed off as laws.

This is Missouri in 2013: Brian Nieves is taken seriously.

Supreme Court Justice Stewart Potter once famously wrote of pornography that it was hard to define, but “I know it when I see it.”

In many ways, that’s what the Missouri legislative session was on Wednesday night. It was pornography for gun-toting, anti-federal-government, Obama-hating conspiracy theorists.

Hard core.

If true, the state should sue these goofs for the time and money wasted on this bill.

Know your Constitution.

10th Amendment: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The 2nd Amendment, ie the Constitution - gives the right to bare arms. No law that is part of the Constitution limits it.

The entire OP article is complete shit. Don't even have to go into why the "foreign" part is in there ( ie. the recent attempts to yet again bow to the UN ). Just complete trash from a stupid or evil person ( or both ), ie. a liberal.

I don't support the right to bare arms at all.


Especially fatties.
