Long before Joe Biden confirmed their worst fear—that President Obama is planning to go all Mr. Bananagrabber on them—those at the forefront of America's
civil gun rights movement began making their doomsday preparations; and with good reason.
Adding insult to injury, Obama's administration has refused requests by we the people to build a Death Star, purportedly because there isn't enough platinum in the world to pay for it—a claim belied by algebra and science.

The Ku Klux Klan bragged that their recruiting has been finger lickin' good since Obama's election.
"Since Obama's first term our numbers have doubled and now that we're headed to a second term it's going to triple, this is going to be the biggest resurgence of the Klan since 1915," said one of the Klansmen interviewed.
The Klansman have been handing out flyers in a Mechanicsville neighborhood, and neighbors who received them have contacted CBS 6.
"We're not trying to target anybody or scare anybody with hate, we're just using our freedom of speech to drop fliers," said one of the Klansmen interviewed. "Everyone thinks that we're a hate group, we're not a hate group, we don't hate anyone, and we want to see good things come to our race."
Rep. Michele Bachmann betrayed her faith by refusing to pay her campaign workers for services rendered.
Waldron said the staffers are owed a mere $5,000, and that Bachmann has more than $2 million in her campaign account, but has refused to pay unless the staffers sign the agreement. Negotiations over payment with Bachmann Finance Chairman James Pollack eventually broke down and Waldron decided to go public with the news, posting a press release on Christian Newswire this evening.
"I feel a moral obligation to see that my Christian brothers and sisters are paid for worked performed in good faith. I've continually communicated by telephone and email with Mr. Pollack for 1 year but he broke every promise made to me to pay the staff. I appealed to Dr. [Marcus] Bachmann for help. I appealed to Representative Bachmann's Chief of Staff Robert Boland to intercede with Mrs. Bachmann on behalf of her loyal Iowa staff — all of whom are married, all have children," Waldron said in the press release.
"It is sobering to think that a Christian member of Congress would betray her testimony to the Lord and the public by withholding earned wages from deserving staff," Waldron added.
And, in other news...
WorldNetDaily penned an open letter to Chief Justice John Roberts warning him of what will happen if he goes ahead with plans to administer the oath of office to President Obama again.
Your own oath of office, sworn before God and the American people, requires you to uphold the Constitution. (If not you, then who?) If you now administer the oath of office for the presidency to a man who by his own admission fails to meet the natural born citizen requirement imposed by that Constitution, you have violated your own oath of office and are rightly subject to impeachment by any House of Representatives, at any time, now or in the future.
The stupid, it burns!
