President Obama’s small-bore secretary of state, John Kerry, has come out to say that he just can’t wait to sign a U.N. treaty on arms control, a major goal of which is, as is the case with most gun-control proposals, to disarm Americans under the guise of keeping weapons out of the hands of terrorists.
Cheap Seats has learned, interestingly, since Kerry’s announcement on the gun-control treaty, that his boss has demanded the phone records of all Americans who use Verizon.
Cheap Seats seems to recall that Kerry and Obama were horrified that President George W. Bush wanted records of calls coming into the United States from potential terrorists. Now Obama wants to listen in on calls made from within the United States.
By the Bush standard, that would make all Americans potential terrorists, would it not?
Kind of makes Cheap Seats wonder what Obama does all day in the Oval Office.
But then Cheap Seats started connecting dots. Kerry likes his gun-control and Obama likes listening on Americans.
Cheap Seats is a bit afraid to find out what Homeland Security Janet Napalm-itano, er Napolitano, does with her free time. Sort of like Scrooge, she probably sits around, counting the bullets she’s been buying with tax money, driving up prices for private buyers.
All of which makes Cheap Seats kind of think Kerry is getting a bad rap. At least Kerry said he was going to sign the treaty. It’s not like he was for it before he was against it.
Kerry, when it comes to firearms, is at least stupefyingly consistent in this case. Not that there’s anything right with that.
