2013: It's going to be a rough year
I candidly confess that I am not very superstitious. I don't care how many cracks I step on on a sidewalk; I don't care how many cracked mirrors I look at; I've never thrown salt over my shoulder; I've never rubbed a red-headed boy's head for luck; I don't carry four-leaf clovers or rabbit's feet in my pocket; and the number 13 doesn't scare me a bit. All of that notwithstanding, however, I can't help but believe that 2013...

..."The issue Mr. Obama wants to solve has nothing to do with stopping crazed lunatics from massacring children. He wants to solve the ‘problem' of citizens possessing firearms that he and his ilk find scary.

Gun owners mad as hell and will not take it!
There is a purge of Congress in the offing. It will be historic in its magnitude. -- Allow me to be as clear as I possibly can about this because the disconnect between the people of America and their government has become so complete, the distance between the citizen and the government has become so broad, that Washington is hearing only a faint whisper (If they hear anything at all!) coming from those of us outside the beltway...
