    VPOTUS Medis Roundup

    Parker Media Roundup The following are recent comments by Vice President Parker on current events. On the China/Russia/Japan unrest: "Our friends and foes alike should understand this Administration is not disengaging from the global stage. America First should not be interpreted as America Only." At the Pearl Harbor memorial ceremony: "Imperial Japan made the mistake of resting American resolve one Sunday morning here. Along with the 2400 casualties, the discredited doctrine of isolationism was soundly and completely buried. Never again can we leave the global stage; this is our responsibility, it is our trust, it is our promise to the honored dead in the cemeteries around the Island and forever entombed in USS ARIZONA. " On the recent election: "I heard someone say that the progressive message wasn't gotten out. I disagree; they did an excellent job and the American People just aren't interested in it."

    I Am Pro Gun Change My Mind

    Context, context, context. The Framers consciously and specifically rejected a standing army. Their idea was that local militias (locally funded if not privately funded) would be called to service in time of emergency. The modern idea of a formally military militia only really dates to 1903 and the Dick Act. Before, militias were generally county based. John Brown Gordon was a coal mine operator in Northern Alabama in 1860; as a leading citizen he was a frontrunner for the Captaincy of his county's militia company in the 6th Alabama in 1861. And up North, some militia companies were fielded and funded by factories or local railroads. Even State provided equipment besides maybe obsolete flintlocks was almost unheard of; the average militia member provided all his own equipment and would only be paid for "summer camp" or if called to actual service. See, in a true militia officers were elected as they were considered to be a para-civil authority; even as recently as the 20th century some rural sheriff's departments required deputies to purchase their own equipment. Some counties were so miserly that Sheriffs and deputies were paid by arrest and citgation; Tennessee's McMinn County War was fought in part over a corrupt Sheriff's abuse of this policy. The real life Barney Fife owned his own uniform, holster, revolver and one bullet. And might have been paid 50 cents (or some amount) per parking ticket he wrote.

    Couple thoughts. Ignoring the fact that "judicial review" is an usurped power, the Dick Act in 1903 unconstitutionally turned the militia into a second-echelon reserve component of the Armed Forces. The "dual role" the National Guard goes on so much about is puerile sophistry. A militia either IS a militia or is NOT a militia. Mandatory background checks are unconstitutional, too. Fourth Amendment? Firearms are private property and as such gun rights are property rights. Dred Scott, as immoral as the conclusion was and as unconstitutional as "judicial review" is, was based on a reasonably sound interpretation of common law. Property is property, and should be left to the owner's discretion to dispose of as he sees fit, in general. I have thought for some time that the Second Amendment was superfluous; as no power to regulate any sort of firearm was delegated to the US Government in the Constitution, the US Government possesses no such power.
