Government overreach is certainly no Fluke

As I always say, when the going gets tough, the tough get going to Facebook to see what in the heck is going on with this country. After the last few days — who am I kidding, years — I can say without a doubt that what is going on is a steady decline.

I was going to spend a fair amount of time to give readers the background they needed on Sandra Fluke — the wide-eyed, 23-year-old, naïve, coed from Georgetown University — so folks could understand her agenda and where she’s coming from in what’s certainly not a debate about the availability and affordability of birth control. Wait, she’s 30? She’s a “contraceptive activist?” She went to Georgetown on purpose to get the government to force the university to change its insurance policies? I’m shocked to find out there’s gambling at Rick’s! If only there was a way to Google a set of words to vet just who Sandra Fluke really is and find out the truth about what’s going on in D.C. over this made-up emergency.

Then I decided I was going to write about the battle of our State Senator, Steve King, to get the Democrat dolts in our Legislature to gain a basic understanding of “inalienable rights.” Steve has the

far-fetched notion people should be able to arm themselves for protection. He believes this is true when people are having a peaceful day with their family at home and when they’re going about their daily business. But you see, Steve also has the radical idea people should retain that right, one that can’t be taken away as it is endowed by our Creator. And everyone knows that during an emergency is when our government grabs the most power … er, shines. If only there was a document that has proven to be the most successful, God-inspired source that has allowed a bunch of castoffs to become the greatest society the world has ever seen.

I was then going to take on that across-the-aisle-reaching, comprise- riddled, well-beyond-any-usefulness U.S. Senator from Arizona, John McCain, and his little speech on the floor of the Senate telling us we need to go to war with Syria. By the way, do you think he sounds more like Beavis or Butthead? As far as I’ve been taught — before many of our schools achieved their original design (Google it, I dare you) — a U.S. senator can’t declare war on another nation. Their job is to represent their state at the national level.

I also believe that allowing for the popular vote to elect senators is a huge mistake and garners the people the “service” of great political minds like Mark Udall, Olympia Snowe, Diane Feinstein, Hillary Clinton, a bunch of corrupt thugs from Illinois and John McCain. If only our founding fathers would have set up a plan to prevent that from happening.

I’d expand on these, but it’s easier to say nobody cares about the rule of law.

For the Democrats on the Colorado Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee, obviously the Constitution means nothing. The Constitution and Bill of Rights are the absolute law of the land, inalienable and above reproach by little, state, self-serving minions of a progressive attitude. But for some reason, these elected elites think they know better than the men whose shoes they haven’t earned the right to shine. And if you don’t think they’ll hide behind the Constitution, just try to take away a woman’s right to abort baby No. 55,000,001. These kinds of public servants serve a very select public and that public is not you. They are dangerous, purposeful hypocrites.

As for U.S. Sen. McCain — I think he sounds more like Butthead, particularly when you actually listen to what he’s saying — it’s time to pack up all nice and snuggly in the canoe and get pushed out to sea, or to one of your wife’s several homes across the country. Your reaching across the aisle to compromise is the reason this country is in the shape it’s in. You can’t take a God-driven, moral and ethical foundation and work around it. Documents like the Constitution don’t demand to be adhered to, their brilliance commands it. Our leaders have soiled its brilliance over the years and it’s time to stop. Because when you compromise what’s good and right in God’s eyes with the evils of those we elect — hidden under the guise of “helping others” — the result must be a move towards evil. It’s time to start moving the other way.

As for the Facebook Einsteins over the weekend, you win — to a point. I was hit with so many talking points I almost offered to replace Joy Behar on “The View.” There’s no birth control emergency in terms of an accessible, affordable supply. Rush Limbaugh has the right to say whatever he wants. And taking government money comes with strings — actually, it comes with a rope. Just remember this column when the government actually causes the first shortage of contraception in this country, someone in the government doesn’t like what you have to say and the life Nazis invade your humble abode.

Margaret Sanger in sheep’s clothing is still Margaret Sanger.
