Bradley County Sherrif Jim Ruth joins Arpaio and Mack saying NO to Obama gun control

269 SHERIFFS AND 8 STATE SHERIFFS ASSOCIATIONS SAYING ‘NO’ TO OBAMA GUN CONTROL

Posted on February 01, 2013

Sheriffs have risen up all over our great nation to stand up against the unconstitutional gun control measures being taken.

BCN Note: I have to say this is a very proud moment for my county. Sherrif Jim Ruth has stepped out and is standing tall among Sherrifs in Tennessee and across the nation. He along with Jim Hammond of Hamilton County are the first and only to stand against the onslaught of Obama gun control actions from Tennessee. This list of impressive constitutionalists are upholding their oath to the citizens of their respective towns.

When and I do believe the Feds under Obama executive orders or the authorization of the UN will be at our doors very soon to take our guns. Constitutional Sherrifs are the last defense between a tyrannical government and taking your guns. They are really the only ones that can stop them. How you may ask? The Sherrif makes a stand and deputizes every willing person in sight and we simply make a loud and persuasive argument for them to turn around and return to DC. It’s that easy. The trick being our Sherrif has to make the buck stop with him first.

After several people talking with Sherrif Ruth for the last couple of weeks, watching videos and exposing him to the realities of what can happen if the federal government oversteps it’s boundaries he summarized it best when he was quoted as saying ” I don’t think we realize how bad of shape out country really is in!”

If your Sherrif is not on this list, what are you waiting for? Have them contact CSPOA and sign up and stand with Ruth, Arpaio, Mack and many others.

The following is a list of sheriffs and state sheriff’s associations from who have vowed to uphold and defend the Constitution against Obama’s unlawful gun control measures.  I applaud these public servants for their courage and conviction.  

I call on sheriffs all over this nation to add their voices to the growing numbers of faithful protectors of our freedom. -Richard Mack

Constitutional Duty of the Sheriff – Richard Mack

Sheriffs and associations who have made public statements committing to protect their citizens’ 2nd Amendment rights from Obama’s gun control efforts will be added.  Some of these sheriffs are members of the CSPOA, but inclusion in this list does not necessarily mean they are a member.

Congress can take your tax dollar inscribed “In God we trust” but cant wish you “Merry Christmas?”

In Government on December 16, 2011 at 5:10 PM

I am increasingly becoming all to aware that someone is running this country does not need to be there!

What is this country coming to when sending in your tax debt with “In God we trust” inscribed permanently on it and my Congressman cant send me a “Christmas card” with that same money I just sent my taxes in with?

Why have we been castrated by a few elitists? Why do we cow tow to this simple minority who are dictating to the majority the rules? It doesn’t sound sensible to me?

Where are all the real men and women that should be standing up and saying “Stop the madness?” Where are they? Did they get snipped and go into hiding?

You would think that someone in Congress currently would say, ok with near single digit approval ratings, “Americans”, many Cbristian Americans are overwhelmingly shouting, saying we are not doing something right here, we need to change course and fast!”

It would be so refreshing to hear one elected politician at any level say, “Enough is enough!” Near 90 percent of the American people we represent say, “time to do something different!” We are not well liked out there in district land!”

Not a single one, at at any level is willing to make that stand! I long for that one elected official to say “Today, ladies and gentlemen, we have heard you. We are standing up for your rights! Starting today, we are going to start listening to the majority of you Americans who still love this country, we are no longer going to be advised by a few vocal minority that are dead set on destroying this country!”

I would even like to hear it in an official commercial, with band music in the background, lightly playing the star spangled banner, perhaps in a John Wayne voice over, drums come to crescendo, and that voice says loud and boldly, In America, liberty will stand, we are starting today taking our country back from the few elitist, moronic leftist minority! Enough is enough! We are fed up and we ain’t(yes, I said ain’t) gonna take it no more!” What? A guy cant dream and wish this would happen? Would that not be the sweetest sound? Can you imagine the amount of people that would stand and cheer and watch as Nancy, Harry and Barrys hair gets blown back by the collective “whoosh” of air from millions sending that message? I’m getting chills just thinking about it!

Sadly, it’s only a dream, a wish! Will anyone stand up or is it time to elect people that will?

Our people will have to awaken from this sleep that has attacked them first! No change will be created until enough people are hurting and suffering I am afraid!

Soon and very soon I want to watch begrudgingly of course, the eyes of many AmericAns when they finally do wake up and say, “hey, wait a darn minute here! What happened to that great country we used to know? Why didn’t someone tell me?”

What has our country been turned in to?

What about the taxpayer that wants a “Christmas” card and not a “Holiday” card! I’m sure the numbers far outweigh the ones who may be offended by the word “Christ” on a greeting card!

Where are all the Christians on this issue? Where are the Americans? Why are the churches silent on this issue? Why are all the politicians silent? What happened to our backbones? Why do we deny Christ inside the government that is supposed to representative of the citizenry? Why are a vocal minority able to make and implement all the policy? One, I think our Reps have become spineless, two, yes, Im sure they will lose their “tax status” all the while, they lose their “freedom of religion or free speech”, three, Im sure castration hurts! I can’t figure this one out! Or maybe I did figure it out and I am in denial!

Anyway, I can still express my freedom of speech and while I still can without being fined by my government or placed in jail, I am going completely out on the edge here…………here goes…………MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND MAY ALL YOUR CHRISTMASES BE BRIGHT! GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND MAY GOD WATCH OVER EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU! MERRY CHRISTMAS! Have a great weekend! Keep reading and I’ll keep posting!

Please take another minute and read this very depressing article!

Congressmen Can’t Say ‘Merry Christmas’ in Mail
by Mark Tapscott –

Looks like the PC police have threatened members of the House of Representatives against wishing constituents a “Merry Christmas,” if they want to do so in a mailing paid for with tax dollars.

Members who submit official mailings for review by the congressional franking commission that reviews all congressional mail to determine if it can be “franked,” or paid for with tax dollars, are being told that no holiday greetings, including “Merry Christmas,” can be sent in official mail.

“I called the commission to ask for clarification and was told no ‘Merry Christmas.’ Also told cannot say ‘Happy New Year’ but can say ‘have a happy new year’ – referencing the time period of a new year, but not the holiday,” said a Hill staffer who requested anonymity.

Another Hill staffer told The Washington Examiner that “we were given that advice after submitting” a draft mailing.

Members of Congress send millions of dollars worth of mail to constituents every year but there are official rules that govern what can and cannot be said in those mailings. Members are barred, for example, from saying anything that might be construed as advocating their re-election.

But saying “Merry Christmas” is also not permitted, according to a Dec. 12 memo from the “Franking Commission Staff” concerning “Holiday Messaging.” The memo explains:

Members are unable at the current time to use official resources to record holiday greetings, post on social media/website, or send to constituents in franked mail or e-communications.

Member’s Congressional Handbook: GREETINGS-

Expenses related to the purchase or distribution of greetings, including holiday celebrations, condolences, and congratulations for personal distinctions (wedding anniversaries, birthdays, etc.), are not reimbursable.”

Franking Manual:

4(a). Example of Nonfrankable Items
-Birthday, anniversary, wedding, birth, retirement or condolence messages and holiday greetings are prohibited.”

You may make reference to the season as a whole using language along the lines of ‘Have a safe and happy holiday season.’ It may only be incidental to the piece rather than the primary purpose of the communication.”

A franking commission spokesman confirmed to The Washington Examiner that Members of Congress indeed cannot wish constituents “Merry Christmas” in any official mailing.

“Currently, incidental use of the phrase Happy Holidays is permissible but Merry Christmas is not,” said Salley Wood.

So it’s true, the elected representatives of the nation that puts “In God We Trust” on its currency are not permitted to use the greeting that has likely been uttered by every living adult American at least once in their lifetimes.

Just another demonstration that political correctness and freedom of speech, faith and thought are utterly incompatible.
