In a recent letter to The Alamogordo Daily News this idiot made some pretty scathing remarks about the people that populate this sleepy little retirement town that I can not ignore.
Having friends and family living there, some of whom were at the PERMITTED event, I am compelled to take Jimmy to task in terms that even he should understand. Since he mentions seeing it on video I can only assume that it was a one sided crockumentary aired on one of left leaning "Main Stream Media" cable channels.
What I've seen of the protest video from Saturday's tea party/gun rally makes me ill. This is one of the most un-American protests I've ever seen.
Un-American??? Let me tell you something you ungrateful Dipshit; A large number of the participants were either retired or currently active duty military members.
For your information, Comrade Hipps, a Military member or veteran is; someone who, at one point, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America for an amount of up to and including their life.
Your insinuation that these people, who were exercising their Constitutional Rights, are un-patriotic is an unconscionable insult to anyone who has ever served this great country.
The residents of Alamogordo who participated in this event are an embarrassment to those of us who actually love our country.
You love your country???
My ass Jimmy, you don't have the slightest clue what your talking about. The citizens that participated in this permitted assembly were exercising their inalienable Rights to speak, assemble and bear arms.
So you think Americans being Americans is an embarrassment??? If that's the case Jimmy then pack up you shit and relocate to a country where people share your thoughts. You are the one that is Un-American Kipps if you think Citizens availing themselves of their Rights is an anti-American act.
You have the audacity to call that Un-American???? In my mind that makes you one of the most ungrateful socialist bastards I have ever encountered.
Freedom of speech is great. I'll fight to my death to defend that right, even if I don't agree with you, but we all know you can't yell "fire" in a movie theater.
Freedom of speech is great with you Jimmy?
Yes, sure, right up until someone disagrees with you then they are embarrassing and Un-American.
Do you know how Un-American YOU sound?
Apparently you are not educated enough to realize that freedom of speech also includes freedom of expression.
As for not being able to yell fire in a movie theater; Yes I can, if it is actually on fire OR if it is not I am willing to accept the consequences for my action.
Fight to the death to defend my Right ..... Jimmy I believe you are a Liar of the most pompous sort.
I have heard that bullshit all my life; Mostly from socialist bastards who want the government to tend to their every need and are to COWARDLY or inept to even take measures to support or protect their own families.
People like you disgust me Jimmy. Be gut wrenchingly honest Jimmy you wouldn't even subject yourself to a slight paper cut to defend your own family. Because you sat there at your computer denigrating those that are exercising their Rights, I know damn well you would not put yourself out to defend anyone against anything.
The citizens in the video are what's wrong with America.
Alamogordo is a retirement town of approximately 40,000. A very large portion of that number is made up of currently employed or retired citizens that work for the Federal Government and currently on active duty or retired members of the United States Armed Forces.
These are the citizens that you proclaim are what is wrong with America.
That you would express such derogatory comments about those that served to preserve your Right to be an asshole, I find you to be an ungrateful Bastard. If you happen to be a Veteran yourself I find you utterly disgusting in that you would express this notion about people you may have served with.
How can anyone want to deny people health insurance?
No one wants to deny anyone anything Comrade. What we want is our elected officials to do is honor the oath they took to obey the Constitution. Jimmy I defy you to show me in the Constitution where Congress has the power to enact the current health-care proposal. And don't give me that "for the general welfare" clause either as that dog don't hunt!
"Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare but only those specifically enumerated."
-- Thomas Jefferson
In case you missed it, or likely you were not even taught it in Public School, Thomas Jefferson was one of the authors of the Constitution and I think he explains it in clear English what they meant. Don't you Jimmy?
How does gun ownership play into the debate?
Jim, I guess you are too singular minded to realize that the event was a government approved multi purpose gathering of Patriotic Americans exercising a number of their inalienable Rights . Jimmy are you so ignorant as to think that we can or should only be able to exercise one Right at a time?
What practical purpose does it serve to own an AR-15?
I realize that this may be above your level of intelligence but, who needs a purpose to do anything legal?
What practical purpose does it serve to own a motor car that can go 140 miles an hour?
Comrade Hipps this is America, I am under no requirement to explain to you or anyone else what practical purpose I have for doing anything that is my Right and is legal to do so.
Just because you assume Nanny-ship over me does not make it so. You Sir, are a busy body who's time would be better spent minding his own business instead of worrying how others engage in lawful activity.
What purpose, other than the incitement of violence against a "black president" and our nation, does bringing a gun to a tea party serve?
Excuse me !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Back that up with facts Jimmy. I believe you are a political provocateur.
How dare you make such an assessment of those that at one point, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America for an amount of up to and including their life?
Where in anything written or otherwise can you claim the veracity of that statement? That statement is equivalent to the "yelling fire in a crowded theater" that you referenced in your uninformed letter. Here is an other quote from someone who actually wrote the Constitution;
"That the said Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms ... "
-- Samuel Adams, Debates and Proceedings in the Convention of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, at 86-87 (Pierce & Hale, eds., Boston, 1850)
Bet you didn't learn that in Public School did you?
Last I knew, the president and his staff are Americans, just like those of us who are ashamed of such blatant ignorance as displayed in Alamogordo.
Last I knew Comrade those participating in that peaceful PERMITTED assembly were Americans as well. Many of whom are Military members or veterans who, at one point, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America for an amount of up to and including their life.
Obviously, education is not an important issue in Alamogordo Š a part of America that is truly an embarrassment.
In reality Comrade Jimmy education is an important issue in Alamogordo. We want our children educated in the history of this great country. It is obvious that they are not getting it from public education so it behooves those concerned citizens in Alamogordo and communities all over this country to take the education of their children on themselves.
What better way to educate our youth on the Constitution than to publicly demonstrate The Right to; speech, expression, peaceful assembly and keep and bear arms.
It appears that you, Comrade Kipps, are too stupid to recognize the REAL America when you see it.
I suggest that you educate yourself on the Constitution, our Founding Fsthers and their intent before you pen anymore unfounded drivel.
It is you Sir, that is an embarrassment to this great nation, not those that understand what the Constitution and Bill of Rights really means.
No wonder so many parents are choosing to Home-School their children.
