This is a clue

When people this stupid are elected to national office is it any surprise nearly all government actions are messed up beyond all hope of functionality? Just think about this:

This FBI investigation of Leland Yee reveals how easy it is to import lethal assault weapons that were previously banned,” said Speier in an emailed statement from the Representative’s office to Guns.com.

“This case should be a warning to us all that even the most trusted appearing among us are ready to do real harm,” she said.

Her solution to fix future instances of potential gun running such as in the Yee case? Call on the White House to ban the import of “assault weapons.”

Furthermore, from her congressional website:

Jackie was appointed to serve as a Vice Chair of a new congressional Gun Violence Prevention Task Force…

Apparently she is one of the best and brightest the anti-gunners have to offer yet says things like:

She is an outspoken advocate for a federal ban on assault weapons, full and complete background checks on all gun sales, including sales at gun shows, and strict limits on high capacity ammunition sales.

“High capacity ammunition sales”? What does that even mean? Is that when I bring a semi-truck to the gun show to haul away my ammo purchases? And that is disregarding all the evidence that restrictions that she is “an outspoken advocate” for do not make people safer and violates the Bill of Rights. She truly has crap for brains.

If someone’s ability to think rationally is so impaired that they are unable to comprehend how stupid the things she says are then it surely extends to every other thing she wants government involved in. If this were someone in management of a private business they would be demoted to a manual labor position, fired, or the business would go broke. As it is people this stupid are still smart enough to get elected, spend your money on stupid stuff, and tell you how to run your life. And it’s not just her. Government is filled with idiots like this and they believe they are your superiors and they “intend to do you good”.

Although Thoreau had an appropriate response when it is an individual with the obvious intent to do you good (run for your life) when it is a government official you don’t have that option available. When they have the power of government behind them they are a threat to society. As Daniel Webster said when talking of those in government with “good intentions”, “They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.”

I’ve said this before but it doesn’t hurt to remind people that good intentions are not a valid defense at a trial. Should, as would be appropriate, Jackie Speier be put on trial we should not let her use good intentions as a defense.

  1. And furthermore, I don’t see any sign of good intentions on her part. Only bad intentions.
    Yes, it is said “never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence”. But I’ve reached the point of concluding that incompetence is not an adequate explanation in cases like this.

  2. Joe, you may have fallen into the most common thinking-conservative’s trap: ASSUMING that because a proposal is both dumb AND unconstitutional, it had to be generated by a dummy for dummy consumption, and we can therefore laugh it off.

    The past two generations have had such poor civics education, the majority of voters in most elections are indeed too uneducated to make proper decisions about anything at question in any election. You can refer to them as “dummies”, but never forget that they are the VOTING MAJORITY now.

    Now, add in the fact that the leaders of the Left KNOW that the electorate is dumbed-down, and ASSUME that all the dumb and unconstitutional crap is DESIGNED for that level of voter to act on, and we, Sir, do not have a laughing or ridicule issue any longer, we have a SURVIVAL issue.

    We, Sir, are about to be VOTED into history, along with our Constitution. The only class of event which could change this outcome must include a force-multiplier working for us. The event is presently known by the dynamic title of ” Revolution”.

    • I mostly agree. I just don’t trust elections any more. Seriously; one of the foundations of Progressivism (or any authoritarian system) is the idea that people can’t be trusted. We can’t be trusted to run our own businesses, make our own life choices, educate our own kids, keep our own money and other property, or own guns. Why on Earth then should we be trusted to vote? No; you can be sure that the elections are compromised if not altogether fraudulent. It’s in the DNA.

  3. I predicted this exact response last week, as anyone reading the Yee story should have done.

    Colion Noir said back in November of 2012 that if Obama does come after our guns, it will be “covert, very insidious and slick”;

    Well here we are.

    I also said; Does this [Yee story] seem kinda Fast & Furious-ish to anyone else?

    • The whole thing is a set-up. Now what are the odds that Yee gets appointed to a panel on gun control? He’s an expert now, see. An insider with experience in international trafficking.

  4. Re: “high-capacity ammunition sales”
    What do you THINK this means, when you hear these jackasses referring to 100 rounds of .22 Remington Thunderbolt as an “arsenal”?

  5. As a Democrat senate aide to Leon Ryan who was killed at Jonestown, Spier survived being shot five times as the massacre/mass-suicide in Jim-Jones’ “socialist paradise” unfolded, so she gets a permanent Free Pass on all things gun-related… But as a BayAryan she’s no less a precious hothouse dimbulb.

  6. I was leaning towards banning corrupt politicians, that alone should shrink government enough that it could do little if any further harm.
