Joshua Boston wrote a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein, declaring that “I am not your subject,” which has drawn plenty of attention in the post-Newtown political arena. Boston appeared on Fox and Friends this morning not just to talk about the letter, but to rebut Feinstein’s response to it.

Here is the letter the marine wrote to Senator Feinstein:

“Senator Dianne Feinstein,

I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government’s right to know what I own.

Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma’am have overstepped a line that is not your domain.

I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.

I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.

I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.

I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.

We, the people, deserve better than you.

Respectfully Submitted,
Joshua Boston
Cpl, United States Marine Corps
2004-2012″

    These worthless tits of a bore hog commie Democrats and ebabeing RINO’s will shit on Americas fighting men one time to many.

    As IF keeps pointing out, the people panic-buying everything out there are not doing so just turn it all in when asked to. The NRA is a measely 4+ million people, but there’s literally scores of million more behind them.

    It’s interesting how the response from Feinstein’s office talks about the rights of “hunters and sportsmen.”

    Too bad hunting has nothing to do with the subject at hand.

    Let’s see, for starters, destruction of 12acres of alfalfa on Dad’s farm. Along with pasture destruction, ruining barley crops and other destruction. Harboring bubonic plague is just a bonus.

    Destructive and persistent little varmints that we never had when I was growing up. Suspect some kind-hearted developer relocated them to dad’s place and they multiplied.

    One would have to ask a Coon-ass on that one and there isn’t any prairie dogs in Coon-ass country. I wonder if they taste like squirrels? They eat those around here.

    Also, they’ll be needing some time to work their warfare magic and demonize gun owners and the NRA -- after all “Occupy Trigger Finger” can’t be built in a day…

    You can make Brunswick Stew with squirrel meat too.

    I’ve never understood they objection to eating squirrel. They’re not rats, they don’t eat garbage, they eat healthy natural stuff like nuts, acorns and seeds.

    The Environmental Protection Agency collected $252 million in civil and criminal penalties in fiscal year 2012 – an all-time record amount, and more than twice the $168 million assessed in fiscal 2011, according to the agency’s annual enforcement results.

    The agency touted the fiscal 2012 fines and other enforcement actions in a Dec. 17 news release, calling them the result of “vigorous enforcement.”

    For example, in the past year, school bus contractors have been fined more than $400,000 for “excessive idling,” and landlords have been penalized more than $40,000 for failing to hand out “EPA-approved” pamphlets on the dangers of lead-based paint.

    Need to ask someone from Louisiana besides me…for how to cook those up so they don’t taste gamey and full of buck-shot. It’s an art in how to cook them around here.

    I’ve heard they’re pretty tasty if cooked properly. Glenn Reynolds over at Instapundit is always talking about eating the “nuisance species” like nutria and zebra mussels and it sounds like a good idea.

    I’ve had rattlesnake here in AZ and was not impressed. Kind of like a very dry bony fish.
    Maybe it was the chef but I thought alligator was better.

    rattlesnake is really good…nuggets…but BBQ was the only time I’ve had it…a fine, white meat, very tender

    I had it fried. It might be better marinated and BBQ’d

    Tastes just like chicken!

    The rattlesnake, not the dog. The dog is more like beef. I don’t know what the steamed cicadia larva tasted like because I do draw lines in some places. Sea cucumber tastes like boiled snot. About what I’d image the texture to be, too.

    My father in law had a GREAT gumbo recipe and it included chicken, shrimp and sausage. He gave me the recipe so I could make it when we left Louisiana.

    Of course, it costs over $100 to make it correctly, since I have to send away for the andouille sausage and the Gulf shrimp. However, it feeds an army.

    RED BEANS AND RICE!!

    My mama was born and raised in New Orleans and New Orleans will always mean red beans and rice. It’s taken me a few tries, but I think I have it down now.

    Lily, do you believe this? There’s this new cookbook out Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking. One of the authors worked with Julia Child. I was SO exxcited when my copy arrived.

    Guess what. There is not ONE recipe for red beans and rice. Okra is mentioned twice.

    The thing is huge -- doorstop huge -- so don’t tell me they couldn’t find room.

    I’m donating it to the library.

    quite often, coconut milk is used in baked goods as well….this is country cooking…it enhances everything it’s used for…a very slight sweetening, and with rice it even alters the texture….just a wee bit

    Looks like they’ll be abandoning it for now….they’re hoping that they’ll get a House majority in 2014 and will revisit it then, of course.
    Also, they’ll be needing some time to work their warfare magic and demonize gun owners and the NRA — after all “Occupy Trigger Finger” can’t be built in a day…

    Now, the White House is in full damage-control mode, telling the Washington Post that “the report is false.” According to a White House spokesman, “the president has been clear that Congress should reinstate the assault-weapons ban and that avoiding this issue just because it’s been politically difficult in the past is not an option.”

    Doesn’t sound to me like they’re abandoning it. Biden apparently let leak the WH plans for the executive orders. Longer more intrusive background checks, ban on 30 round mags, limitations on certain types of ammo, reinstatement of the Klinton “assault” weapon ban, and basically shutting down gun shows to stop the imaginary loophole.

    My favorite fish is bluegill. The bones are a lot of trouble but no other fish tastes as good.

    Here are two foods I have never tried, and don’t plan to:

    Fuligo septica, a slime mold a/k/a caca de luna

    Corn smut a/k/a huitlacoche
