Why Carry a Gun?

Filed under: Self-Defense — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 5:00 PM (17:00)

Why Carry a Gun?

Author Unknown

My old Grandpa said to me, ‘Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take a whoopin’.’

I don’t carry a gun to kill people; I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil; I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the World.

I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government; I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry; I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone; I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man; I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate; I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don’t carry a gun because I love it; I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

Police protection is an oxymoron: Free citizens must protect themselves because police do not protect you from crime; they just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

Personally, I carry a gun because I’m too young to die and too old to take a whoopin’!

A LITTLE GUN HISTORY

PLEASE DON’T THINK FOR A MOMENT, THAT THIS COULDN’T HAPPEN IN OUR COUNTRY ALSO !

⋅ In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control:

· From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

———————–

In 1911, Turkey established gun control:

⋅ From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

———————–

Germany established gun control in 1938:

From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

———————–

China established gun control in 1935:

From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

———————–

Guatemala established gun control in 1964:

⋅ From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

———————–

Uganda established gun control in 1970:

⋅ From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

———————–

Cambodia established gun control in 1956:

⋅ From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

———————–

56 million defenseless people were rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control.[1]

———————–

You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

With guns, we are ‘citizens’; without them, we are ‘subjects’.

During WW II, the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

Gun owners in the USA are the largest armed forces in the World!

If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message to all of your friends.

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense.

The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either.

⋅ SWITZERLAND ISSUES A GUN TO EVERY HOUSEHOLD! SWITZERLAND’S GOVERNMENT ISSUES AND TRAINS EVERY ADULT IN THE USE OF A RIFLE.

⋅ SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!

⋅ IT’S A NO BRAINER! DON’T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.

I’m a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment! If you are too, please forward this. If you’re not a believer, please reconsider the true facts. This is history; not what’s being shown on TV, sanctioned by our illustrious delusional leaders in Washington.

H/T Joseph L. Roberts

Paul Krugman, Instructor on Masterclass

Filed under: Economics, Humor, Politics — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 3:52 PM (15:52)

Scrolling through my “News Feed” on Cuckerbergbook, I recently came across this little gem —

<sarc>
Yes, YOU TOO can add to your economics edumication for the low, one-time price of 180!
</sarc>

But seriously, folks, why not simply cut to the chase on this?

<sarc>If we’re going to live the Krugman way, why not go all-out?

Let’s have our friends in the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy (and their foreign counterparts around the world) light off all of their special toys? You know, the ones that give us results like this —

That way, we can all cash in and get rich!</sarc>

Chuck Baldwin on “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation Laws

Filed under: Politics, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:00 AM (04:00)

Chuck Baldwin
Sunday, November 11, 2018 at 11:31 PM ⋅

America has had its first killing in an attempt to confiscate an innocent man’s firearms under newly-enacted “red flag” laws.

Police officers in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, showed up to confiscate 60-year-old Gary Willis’ guns. A family member had called police and asked them to suspend Gary’s gun rights, and the local police department was more than happy to oblige.

When the pounding on the door began at 5:17 am, Gary showed up to his door holding a firearm. When he saw it was police, he put the gun down to talk to them. But then the officers informed him they were there to confiscate all of his weapons.

Imagine how you would feel. You wake up out of a sound sleep to pounding on your door. You grab a gun in case it is a criminal, but it turns out that the police are there to confiscate your guns without even accusing you of committing a crime.

Gary refused to comply with the confiscation order. That is when a fight broke out. During the struggle, police opened fire on Gary Willis, killing the 60-year-old man in his own home.

Gary was not charged or even accused of committing a crime. Police judged him guilty until proven innocent — which is exactly what EVERY “red flag” law does.

All of this happened because one extended family member told police she was worried that he was dangerous. No evidence, no proof . . . just one person’s word. And now, an innocent man is dead.

This is America’s future if establishment Republicans get their way. They are working with Democrats on a nationwide “red flag” bill to authorize these kinds of gun confiscations across the country.

And we already know that Donald Trump is solidly behind these “red flag” laws. His quote:

“Take the guns first, go through due process second.”

Soon after Trump spoke those words, Republicans in Florida (they controlled the House, Senate and Governor’s office) passed their own Hitlerian “red flag” law, (as have numerous other states). Since then hundreds of innocent Floridians have had their guns seized by police.

Now, we have our first American citizen killed by police during an attempt to enforce a “red flag” law. (I predicted this would happen as soon as I heard about these “red flag” laws.) He won’t be the last.

If people value their right to keep and bear arms, they better start banding together in large numbers to make sure these “red flag” laws do not become law in their states — or even in our entire country by an act of the federal congress.

And if you are depending on Republicans to protect your 2nd Amendment liberties, you are totally in the dark about what is going on (neither can we depend on the NRA for help). Donald Trump and a host of Republicans in DC are plotting RIGHT NOW to enact federal “red flag” laws. And Republicans (along with Democrats) are enacting “red flag” laws in State legislatures all over the country.

WAKE UP, FOLKS, BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE — OR ONE DAY POLICE WILL BE BANGING ON YOUR DOOR TO CONFISCATE YOUR GUNS.

Quote of the Day for Saturday, 3 November 2018

Filed under: Philosophy, Principles, Quote of the Day — mikewb1971 @ 7:19 AM (07:19)

Any culture which, in the interests of efficiency or in the name of some political or religious dogma, seeks to standardize the human individual, commits an outrage against man’s biological nature.

Arvin Vohra and Tiffany Diaz De Leon on Education

Filed under: Education, Politics — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 9:09 PM (21:09)

Education doesn’t have to be welfare. It doesn’t have to be paid for by taxes, or administered by government.

As an educator, I consider education to be the second most important part of life. The most important part is food. What if we treated education like food?

Some people would choose to provide education at home, just as today many people prepare meals at home. Some might use prepackaged curricula, like the Ron Paul Curriculum – just as today some people like prepared meals.

Others might find deep interest and passion in education, just as some people love exploring new recipes at home. Others might choose to use private schools, just as today people go to private restaurants. Some might have in-home tutors, just as today some people hire caterers.

Most people would probably use a mix – just as today, most people sometimes cook at home, sometimes microwave prepared meals, and sometimes eat at restaurants.

Separating education from the welfare state will give more choices, better quality, and lower taxes. If elected, I will do everything I can to end all government funded, subsidized, or managed education.

Respectfully,

Arvin Vohra
Candidate for U.S. Senate

Great Post.

In Washington State, our Dollar Stores are pretty high speed — fresh produce, dairy, lunch meat, aisles and aisles of crackers, noodles, condiments, soda.

Could a poor person survive on dollar store food only? Yes.

May not like it all of the time, but if you are poor what choice do you have?

Moving up the food/grocery ladder . . .

* Big Lots — discount store, some grocery
* Walmart
* Sam’s Club
* Costco
* Cash and Carry
* Standard grocery stores such as Safeway, Albertsons
* Wholefoods and PCC
* Small yuppie, posh grocery stores in smaller yuppie posh neighborhoods such as Harbor Greens with custom meat, expensive dressings, and overpriced olive bars.

Then onto higher-priced foods such as crab legs, lobster bisques, prime rib

– Sprinkle in, as above, (range of) restaurants and/or home delivered meals.

But instead of being food. Above could be education. Yes, Dollar Store – education. Yes, olive bar – education. Yes, home delivery — education.

Maybe parents can only afford dollar store food — to send their child to ‘Wholefoods’ – level education.

Answer is always the same = Subsidize Nothing.

Answer is always the same = Free Markets.

Food, education, dry-cleaning, medical care, socks, birth control, no matter = free market.

At least with education, the Internet (modem dinging sound effect) has leveled the playing field tremendously 🙂

#UberizeEducation
#AlacarteEducation
#DollarStoreEducation
#NotMyKid

So instead of Uberizing education, you would prefer to keep your kids in the government-owned and -operated indoctrination and daycare centers public schools

  • Where your kids can sample all of the latest drugs, both recreational and officially-sanctioned?
  • Where your kids can get alcohol?
  • Where your kids can have sex with their peers (or teachers, or the janitor, or the “school resource officer”)?
  • Where your kids can go through metal detectors and / or get wand-raped before entering the building?
  • Where your kids can get their officially-issued ID card with embedded RFID chip (biometrics coming soon!)?
  • Where your kids can know that they’re safe because someone affixed a sign saying “NO WEAPONS ALLOWED” sign to a post on the property boundary?
  • Where your kids can be taught that a mile is a shorter distance than a kilometer?
  • Where your kids can be tasered, pepper-sprayed and handcuffed for the offense of “being out of line” ?
