Evil does exist in our world. It always has and always will. Throughout history evil people have committed evil acts. In the Bible one of the first stories is that of Cain killing Abel. We cannot legislate “evil” into extinction. Good people will abide by the law, defective people will always find a way around it.
Take a moment to reflect on the real purpose of the Second Amendment- The right of the people to take up arms in defense of themselves, their families, and property in the face of invading armies or an oppressive government. The argument that the Second Amendment only applies to hunting and target shooting is asinine. When the United States Constitution was drafted “hunting” was an everyday chore carried out by men and women to put meat on the table each night, and “target shooting” was an unheard of concept, musket balls were a precious commodity in the wilds of early America, and were certainly not wasted “target shooting”. The Second Amendment was written by people who fled oppressive and tyrannical regimes in Europe, and refers to the right of American citizens to be armed for defense purposes should such tyranny rise in the United States.
December 29, 2012 marked the 122nd Anniversary of the murder of 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. These 297 people, in their winter camp, were murdered by federal agents and members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms “for their own safety and protection”. The slaughter began AFTER the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms. When the final round had flown, of the 297 dead or dying, two thirds (200) were women and children.
Wounded Knee was among the first federally backed gun confiscation attempts in United States history. It ended in the senseless murder of 297 people.
Get ready for a "shocker", Nuh! I agree with every word you've said!
Even though I don't THINK it will ever happen...or maybe, I just don't want to believe that it will or could, neither did the Ones in the past think that it would happen to them.
The Gov't. does things almost every day that I never thought it would, be it small things or major Ones. So, I'm not willing to take the chance that the American People might not one day have to fight to keep what little Freedom we have left or to save our Lives. Our numbers and our weapons, small though they might be compared to the Military's...without them, we would be completely helpless.
And frankly, I don't like the direction that the Country's going in right now and has been since 1980! Nothing with the Gov't. EVER happens overnight, it's always the result of Long-range Planning and we don't know what Long-range Plans are in the works right now.

Niebla is a member of the Sinaloa drug cartel whose trial keeps getting postponed.
Niebla has special immunity from the DEA because of a deal between US federal govt. and Sinaloa.
In exchange for the Sinaloa providing intellegence on rival Mexican drug gangs the US govt.permits Sinaloa to ship drugs into US through Chicago.

"The Enemy of my Enemy, is my Friend". Isn't this exactly what we do in our Foreign Policy and have for many , many years?
Of course, our "Friend" usually turns on us, eventually, when we no longer have a use for them and, they can no longer get anything out of us.

And it's been done for most of my Lifetime and I don't see any sign of it changing. As a Nation, we tend to "buy" our Friends. It's just the way the world seems to be and has been, at least, since WWII and maybe before that.

As many times as Obama's Life has been threatened, some right here on this Forum...I can see where he might need it because if the Racism that still exists in this Nation. But, I can't for the Life of me, see why Bush needs it, unless it's to protect him from being captured and taken to other countries that have convicted him, in abstentia, for War Crimes. Neither can I see why Future Presidents might need it, when we don't even know who they will be or what they may do.
I wonder if it's all because of the rising violence in this Country and the Country's Leaders are well aware of it. Yet, they don't seem to have the capability of knowing anything to do about it, other than to protect themselves.
Notice that it was a Republican that sponsored the Bill, not President Obama. And I certainly fail to see how it's going to save us money.
And I certainly don't think the Taxpayers should foot the Bill forever, when all the Presidents can well afford to provide their own Lifetime Security, if they deem it necessary! I think 10 years was sufficient and necessary, but NOT a Lifetime!

How could they have been Ford's Secret Service Agents, if a former President only has them for 10 years , as the Article says? Ford hadn't been President for more than 10 years, in 1998...alot more than 10 years. He hadn't been President since around 1975, I think.

OK, I Googled it and here's the answer I found:
----------

How long do former presidents receive Secret Service protection after they leave office?

In 1965, Congress authorized the Secret Service (Public Law 89-186) to protect a former president and his/her spouse during their lifetime, unless they decline protection. In 1997, Congress enacted legislation (Public Law 103-329) that limits Secret Service protection for former presidents to 10 years after leaving office. Under this new law, individuals who are in office before January 1, 1997, will continue to receive Secret Service protection for their lifetime. Individuals elected to office after that time will receive protection for 10 years after leaving office. Therefore, President Clinton will be the last president to receive lifetime protection.
