Obama Discriminating Against Gun Owners?

It didn’t take long did it?

From: WND

One of Obama’s 63 questions for applicants who wish to work for the federal government is:

Do you or any members of your immediate family own a gun? If so, provide complete ownership and registration information. Has the registration ever lapsed? Please also describe how and by whom it is used and whether it has been the cause of any personal injuries or property damage.

The only discernable reason this question about handgun, rifle or shotgun ownership would be asked is the same reason employers used to ask job seekers about their race, gender, age or ethnic background – that is, solely for the purpose of discriminating against the applicant. Indeed, this marks the first time a president has ever asked potential administration employees if they are exercising one of their constitutional rights as part of the weeding-out process.


Nazis As Virtual Monsters

I just finished reading a very interesting article at Ars Technica in which the author discusses the the way we view history through the eyes of video games. In the new Call of Duty game the “bad guys” are the Nazis. When referring to World War II we separate Nazis and Germans. The author takes issue with this separation stating:

Saying there is a huge gulf between the German people and the Nazi characters would would be like saying it’s okay to kill Republicans in a game, but you have issues with Americans being the bad guys.

The reason we separate the two is because of what the Nazis represented: the Holocaust and their dangerous ideas of fascism.

Sanity in the House

It seems at least one person in Washington has been paying attention these past months.

From Breitbart:

“It may sound a bit crazy and off base, but the thing is, he’s the one who proposed this national security force,” Rep. Paul Broun said of Obama in an interview Monday with The Associated Press. “I’m just trying to bring attention to the fact that we may—may not, I hope not—but we may have a problem with that type of philosophy of radical socialism or Marxism.”

Broun cited a July speech by Obama that has circulated on the Internet in which the then-Democratic presidential candidate called for a civilian force to take some of the national security burden off the military.

“That’s exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it’s exactly what the Soviet Union did,” Broun said. “When he’s proposing to have a national security force that’s answering to him, that is as strong as the U.S. military, he’s showing me signs of being Marxist.”
