This year marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and progressives cannot let him rest in peace, because for liberals, it wasn't just JFK who died on that awful day, it was their dream of a competent government run by popular people.
Since JFK was shot by in Dallas, the idea government could be run by "The Best And The Brightest" has faded from the American conscience. Since then, American liberals have had to put up with liars (Johnson), rubes (Carter), narcissists (Clinton) or all three (Obama) as President.
Obama swept into office riding on JFK coattails. Liberals around the country were ready, willing and eager to clothe him and Michelle with JFK's mantle and Jackie's designer gowns.
But a funny thing happened on the way to the coronation: Not only does our new Emperor have no groove, he has no clothes as well. To borrow from Lloyd Bentsen, Obama is no JFK.
President Kennedy's death was a tragedy for our country, but for the left, it was a tragedy for their political movement as well because it represented their high-water mark in American politics. It is not just Kennedy they mourn, but his politics as well.
Yes, I realize that oodles and oodles of Californians move to Arizona to get away from the nanny statism that is slowly chocking the life out of the Golden State.
But every once in a while, we let someone through the cracks, and they end up thinking that was doesn't work in California should be what Arizona tries.
For example, the owner of J+G Sales, a favorite of gun owners and collectors around the country, wants to build a private shooting range on his ranch in Prescott Valley. The County thinks that is no bueno and is trying to shut it down.
A Prescott gun enthusiast is in a heated battle with the county and some of his neighbors over the construction of a gun range on his property. Brad DeSaye, owner of the Headhunter Ranch off of Williamson Valley Road, is in the process of building a private gun range on his 380-acre ranch. DeSaye also owns J&G Sales, 440 Miller Valley Road, which sells a variety of firearms, ammunition and accessories.
According to a Notice of Violation from the Yavapai County Development Services Department, dated Sept. 6, the gun range violates Section 400 Non-permitted Use or Disallowed Use, and Section 501 Accessory Uses of the county's zoning ordinances.
Court documents filed on DeSaye's behalf contend that the county is infringing on DeSaye's Second Amendment right to bear arms through its attempt to bar him from shooting on his property.
Which brings me to this inane comment from "Barbara Butterfield".
The cracking sound of high-powered gunfire is the last thing Barbara Butterfield said she expected to hear when she moved to the quiet country area. "I don't like it at all. How would you like to get up on Sunday morning at 7 a.m. and hear high-powered gunfire in your backyard? How would you like that?" Butterfield asked. "That isn't the nature of the Arizona that I thought I was moving to. For eight years it was peaceful, but it's not now."
Arizona has a state gun, the Colt Peacemaker. The flag of Arizona is the flag of the state rifle and pistol association (not the other way around). This is the home state to the OK Corral, Geronimo and the Arizona Rangers. And Mz. Butterfield is shocked, SHOCKED that there are guns here.
Welcome to Arizona, Mz. Butterfield. Sorry it took you eight years to figure out where you actually moved to.
Your tax dollars paid for this: Obamacare, The Game!

I swear, who needs drugs, when reality itself is this messed up?
