Try telling that to all those TSA agents at our airports. I realize that his advisors are all probably liberal idiots just like him but doesn&rsquo;t he follow the news to see what&rsquo;s going on for himself? &mdash; Embarrassed in Idaho<br />\n Dear Embarrassed:<br />\n Please remember that with Team Obama everything is politics and Secretary Kerry&rsquo;s ridiculous remarks are no different. Don&rsquo;t forget that George Bush defeated Kerry in 2004 so he and the president both suffer from Bush derangement syndrome. Kerry&rsquo;s remarks appear to be part of a political strategy to shore up President Obama&rsquo;s legacy by trying to tell America we&rsquo;re safer today than when Barack Obama took office after that evil George Bush.<br />\n During his congressional testimony Kerry said the following with a straight face but then again Botox can do that. &ldquo;Despite ISIL, despite the visible killings that you see and how horrific they are, we are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally; less deaths, less violent deaths today, than through the last century.&rdquo; Umm I&rsquo;m speechless.<br />\n Director of National Intelligence James Clapper painted a far bleaker picture of world safety when he testified the next day before the Senate Armed Services Committee &ldquo;When the final accounting is done, 2014 will have been the most lethal year for global terrorism in the 45 years such data has been compiled.&rdquo;<br />\n Not only does Clapper&rsquo;s testimony make Secretary Kerry look foolish but this contradiction in views also exposes the dysfunction in the Obama administration&rsquo;s foreign policy. With unforced errors like this President Obama has the nerve to call ISIL the JV team?<br />\n This is the same John Kerry who is leading the Obama charge to lie down like a puppy in front of the mullahs in Iran to strike a nuclear deal that basically gives Iran everything it wants while Iran blows up a replica of a U.S. aircraft carrier during maneuvers. This is the same Kerry who is leading the Obama charge against Israel, our number one ally in the world. Thank goodness this man was not elected president.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n Well, well the dire NRA predictions that were made fun of by liberals and the mainstream media are becoming reality.&nbsp; Barack Obama is going to ban bullets by executive action. According to various stories, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives is proposing to ban AR15 ammunition because it will classify the round as &ldquo;cop killers.&rdquo; This is just the beginning as Obama has bragged about using his executive powers when congress won&rsquo;t vote his way.&nbsp; Can he do this?&mdash; Pistol Pete<br />\n Dear Pistol: &nbsp;<br />\n Two strategies are at play here. First the president has discovered that he can circumvent Congress and issue executive orders that could be tied up in court for years with the hopes that the damage can&rsquo;t be undone. &nbsp;<br />\n Second the president thinks he&rsquo;s found a loophole in the constitution.&nbsp; The president believes that bullets are not covered in the second amendment when it states &ldquo;the right of the people to keep and bear arms.&rdquo; For the president&rsquo;s information a gun is not an &ldquo;arm&rdquo; if it has no bullets. Unfortunately Obama is willing to take a chance and see if a liberal judge will see it his way. Stay vigilant.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: &nbsp;<br />\n Man I just heard they legalized marijuana in Washington DC. That&rsquo;s the greatest thing I&rsquo;ve ever heard, well since they legalized it in Colorado and Washington State. I can&rsquo;t wait to rub one out in front of the Lincoln Memorial. Is this a great country or what? &mdash; Doper Dave in Denver<br />\n Dear Doper:<br />\n Just when you think it couldn&rsquo;t be any dopier in Washington, voters in our nation&rsquo;s capital do this. As studies have shown, marijuana does have some medicinal value, but I don&rsquo;t believe that having more stoners running around is going to make our country better.<br />\n Oh well, most of the politician&rsquo;s ideas are half baked anyway so I guess now they can be 100 percent baked.
