VOTERS… Did the Result of your Actions match up with your Intentions?

I am a firm believer that voters get what they vote for — not what they’re promised. The meat of this is that those voters who are informed make better decisions than those who are swayed by soundbites and ideological ‘stars’ promoted by Hollywood Elites, popular musicians, and professional talking heads. When a self-serving political figure acts to further an agenda that does not match what he/she ‘sold’ to the Electorate, that politician can’t be ‘faulted’ for their behavior — they are just doing what they set out to do, and the teaming masses fell for their sales pitch.

No, the real fault lies at the feet of the voters who not only throw their vote down the crap-hole by not seeking, finding, and supporting true Public Servants — there is always a percentage of voters who are easily fooled into actively supporting ‘leaders’ who have, and will continue to until ousted, worked diligently to destroy communities for the sake of secondary (and often obscured) agendas.

It’s at these happily-ignorant voters that my rant is aimed…

When you voted for #Change, was it because you were an ignorant adult shirking your responsibility to be informed, or were you hoping that it would keep people from seeing you as a #Racist, or did you think that it was impossible for #Politicians to lie, or did you think that #Math was not as important as #SocialJustice, or did you think that none of your friends would remember that it is #YourFault that they have now lost their job, their #HealthCare, their #House, and their #FinancialSecurity ? More importantly, WHAT are you going to DO about all the damage you caused in the last #election? Are you still going to use slanderous and crude sexual terms to mock those who want #LessTaxation and #MoreRepresentation? If you choose to #VoteConservative next time, will you do it quietly or will you #Evangelize like you did for the #GreatEnabler?

“Never Again…” (or at least until the Bad Guys realize that all they need is the power to edit our textbooks)

EnemiesOfCapitalism

Remember whenever a societal tragedy happens, people often say “We can never let this happen again…” and “We must remember this always, and make sure it is never forgotten by future generations…”?

Well, THIS is why Conservatives are getting so PISSED OFF at the Common Core crap and other attempts to water down the history books. People these days DON’T REMEMBER what we’re supposed to avoid — because they have NO EDUCATION in what happened in the past.

Leftists with no concept of history or ideology improperly refer to Conservatives (those who wish to preserve the government and society created by the original Framers of the Constitution, and who signed the Declaration of Independence — both documents which favored and protected INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY over the powers of the State) as ‘Nazis’, because theh only thing that UNEDUCATED, IGNORANT VOTERS remember about Nazis is that they were ‘Bad’ and got their way by force… they are COMPLETELY UNAWARE that Nazi power didn’t begin at gunpoint — it was VOTED to them by those who believed a ‘utopian society’ was possible if only they were willing to give up a few individual rights here and there — besides, it was only a select few (those who the State didn’t find ‘desirable’) who had anything to fear… and look at all the good they’re promising!.

The only thing that is more dangerous than ignorant people is … ignorant people in large groups.

Germany had it, and it bought them the Nazi uprising. We have it now, and it has brought us bailouts in the banking and auto industries, the housing crash, the decimation of the healthcare market, and whatever market stability that there used to be a decade ago. Because we have History and Math, we know FROM EXPERIENCE where men selling this ‘dream’ are going — but when the People are so deluded by hopes of ‘free stuff’ and ‘purity’ without moral compass, they are willing to be led to slaughter while LOUDLY ACCUSING those who warn against false ‘Progress’. This is not new. This is not a surprise. This is not even a ‘hidden’ agenda … but ignorant people don’t know what to look for, and will trust the Devil himself.

American Conservatives CARE ABOUT EDUCATION and the PRESERVATION OF HISTORY because each generation needs to be WELL-ARMED against ALL kinds of Tyranny… most especially the kind that arrives with a gift basket.

“…threw my clothes out on the lawn; AND HE’S GOT A GUN…”

Look around you — friends, coworker, relatives, neighbors… if, on a really bad day, any of them were angry at you after a disagreement — would they be capable (in temperment, mental capacity, and by having a grasp of our current world) of knowing the IMPACT of calling up the police and telling them “We argued and he has a gun!”?

What do you think is important to take away from this educational experience (read article linked above)?

  • Do you obscure firearm ownership from everyone?

  • Do you only associate with others who agree with your Right to defend yourself?

  • Do you take time to educate everyone you meet about the Constitution, the stats that show the 100’s more times firearms save good people than they aid bad people, the difference in lives saved when a CCW-holder (who’s already on the scene) steps in and stops a killer before the cops have time to arrive and only count the victims?

Just 40 years ago, kids in elementary school were taught firearm safety IN CLASS, and high school students competed in target shooting ON CAMPUS; and despite all the Presidential noise about it, you’re more likely to be murdered with a hammer than with a rifle — so it makes me wonder, have the Threats changed, or has the Conversation?

Who owns the Threats? Who owns the Conversation? Who owns the Change?

Guns are an Equalizer among Men — but an Unfair Advantage against Tyranny.

995888_501258359972207_1783656265_n

Somebody’s not doing their part!

According to the Brady Campaign folks, the NRA want us to keep killin’ so they can keep sellin’ (the NRA doesn’t sell guns — in fact, it doesn’t represent gun manufacturers, either… it’s membership, annual dues, profits from promotional clothing, and donations are provided by the CUSTOMERS of the gun manufacturers).

But the main political drive of the NRA is to counter the propaganda and legislative attacks on the 2nd Amendment rights of American Citizens — so if you don’t understand that the opponents of the NRA are making INFLATED CLAIMS (that’s lying, folks) about armed citizens being a risk to themselves and others, you might also be unaware that more people LIVE because of guns than the number who DIE.

How is that possible?

Any state, municipality, or even country that has increased its regulations on private firearm ownership has increased in violent crime, or political tyranny ending in massive deaths. Conversely, in any state, municipality or country which has reinforced the personal rights and freedoms of individuals to protect themselves, there has been a corresponding DROP in violent crime, and get this… ADDED LONGEVITY for the respective public servants.

My conclusion from this is that when the people are easily threatened, those who seek power do so only to serve themselves. When the people are NOT easily threatened, those who seek power do so only to serve the people.

In the movies, when someone fires a gun in the air, everyone stops and pays attention

Let’s just start with the plain-and-simple: Firing a gun in the air is dangerous, and is illegal in most civilized societies … EVEN the ones that embrace firearm ownership and self-defense rights. THAT BULLET IS GOING TO COME BACK DOWN.

But, Joe Biden recommends that we step out on our collective porches, fire a 12-guage shotgun in the air, and expect that all the Evil in the world (be they varmits or ‘white-hispanics’ targeting us for our non-drug-related bag of Skittles) will run like Hell to get away from us.

He’s not just an idiot — he’s a DANGEROUS idiot.

Don't+Shoot+bigBut, since we’ve all seen firing a gun in the air done on old TV shows (and in celebrations around the second- and third-world), it just seems like making that bang-bang thing do some noisy-loud something will be just perfect to stop what needs stopping, right?

No. What it might do is rapidly change the situation — but you have no control over exactly what kind of Change that will be. (Kind of like the last couple of elections; but I digress…)

Does Gun Ownership Belong Hidden In The Shadows?

When a society deems gun ownership to be something unacceptible to common popular culture, then much of what people learn about the subject comes only from Hollywood — or worse yet… Joe Biden.

Remember, it was Leftists that have been working so hard over the last 50 years to teach your 2nd-Grader how to be sexually active ‘safely’… Without their help, children might learn ‘wrong’ information from their parents, and be exposed to ‘incorrect values’ that will ‘hinder their development’.

4th_of_July_957s_2013Remember, it was Leftists who have been beating the drum that if Abortion is outlawed, they will continue in secret and in much less ‘desirable’ conditions (what is the condition that makes murder acceptable?). ‘Doctors’ won’t be trained, licensed and certified. Locations will not be sterile. Women’s rights will not be protected. (As they are now at Planned Parenthood facilities, they profess…)

The Leftists are COMPLETELY AWARE that by making firearm ownership an ‘unacceptable’ thing, they push it back into the shadows, where firearms training is often skipped altogether (only Bad Guys, and soldiers on the battlefield, should even have access to a weapon — never mind ‘normal people’ actually *knowing how to use one*, right?). Letting your neighbors, doctors, teachers, coworkers, and friends know that you even own a firearm will darken their view of you forever…)

Then when someone does something REALLY STUPID like FIRING A GUN IN THE AIR, the Left is all too giddy about the opportunity to point out how dangerous firearms are in ‘non-professional hands’.

—–
If you decide that a firearm is something you may be interested in looking into, then TRAINING should be as important as ownership. ASK ME (ask someone!) if you want to know about options that will fit your situation… the best is always in-person instruction with a certified NRA Instructor, followed by one-on-one instruction by someone who simply has years of experience on the subject, followed again by video training available online and on DVD. There are LEGAL implications, SOCIAL issues, ENVIRONMENTAL impacts, and TACTICAL methodologies that you will not get ‘in the box’ when you purchase a firearm.

While some entities work hard to unearth YOUR dirty laundry, others are hard at work to obscure the deeds of the Truly Evil

I hate Microsoft. I’m in the business, and I hate them. So, it really pisses me off when I have to choose one of their products over someone else’s.

But today, I stumbled across THIS while looking something up to answer a question:

BidenShotgunSearchResults

I tried fiddling around with the settings on the Google page, hoping that maybe I was just missing some configuration error on my part… perhaps it was only searching on pages that Google thought matched up somehow with my previous online behavior? No improvement. So I SIGNED OUT of my Google account and tried again in a fresh browser window. No change.

I am left with the understanding that Google has been paid off, or sees political merit themselves, to removing evidence of an event from public awareness.

Thanks, Google — I had thought your mantra was ‘Do No Evil’; now I can see that it’s really ‘Hide Evidence of Evil to Protect those on the Left’.

Learning to live without the assistance of the Federal Government

The Government Shutdown has caused all sorts of administrative headaches, even for departments that have stayed operational — simply because of the reduction in manpower (file clerks, research assistants, analysts, phone bank operators, etc.). It’s inevitable that at some point, this slowdown in Federal productivity will eventually affect those who need a background check for purchases at gun shows (one is scheduled at the fairgrounds this weekend in Indianapolis ).

So, we are working on a National Test to see whether someone is too insane to have access to a firearm, too stupid to be trusted with a firearm, too criminal to get caught outside the house with a firearm, too bad a parent to keep firearms away from children and teenagers, too uneducated to grasp the legal ramifications of the presence and use of a firearm, or too ‘radical and extreme’ politically to be trusted not to shoot an opponent rather than debate in a civil manner.

The neatest part is, there is only one question on the test, and it requires no studying or prep-time. Here it is:

Starbucks finally gives in to pressure from Leftists Alinksy-style battle against personal rights

UPDATE: STOP!!! DO NOT READ THE POST BELOW! No, really — somebody else did it better here, and I highly recommend you click over and see where my own opinion has ended up, right alongside Lloyd

“Gun-Rights, Barney Fife Style” (ArmedLutheran.us)


(…and now for my original post, for those of you who are poor at following directions…)

I have a lot of respect for the way this has been handled by the Starbucks folks up to now; and I have a lot of respect for the way they’re handling it now. I’m sad that they have had to stand for all the activism from BOTH sides of this debate — that is not their role (they just want to sell coffee…).

Having said that, and understanding that they have unfortunately made it easier for hoplophobes to stage a freak-out when a carrying customer is noticed, I choose not to visit them any more because — just as most legally-carrying people will respect the wishes of Starbucks not to carry in their stores — there will eventually be a number of Bad Guys who are not bound by the same decorum that will now see Starbucks as an appropriate place to do Bad Things with firearms. You see, we have all just collectively pointed out to the Bad Guys that none of us will be able to offer any resistance when they choose to use deadly force to steal $150 from the cash register.

Clearly, mass shootings never happen where this first step to delineate a completely defenseless audience has not taken place.

Secondarily, let me point out that this isn’t a Second Amendment issue — it is one for the state level, at which it is decided how personally-owned (and sometimes carried) defensive weapons should be regulated, and what constitutes ‘normal’ for those communities. This isn’t about combating tyranny; no one at Starbucks is saying that people shouldn’t be able to own or carry — they’re just asking that we don’t do it there.

An Open Letter from Howard Schultz, ceo of Starbucks Coffee Company

Tuesday, September 17, 2013
Posted by Howard Schultz, Starbucks chairman, president and chief executive officer

Dear Fellow Americans,

Few topics in America generate a more polarized and emotional debate than guns. In recent months, Starbucks stores and our partners (employees) who work in our stores have been thrust unwillingly into the middle of this debate. That’s why I am writing today with a respectful request that customers no longer bring firearms into our stores or outdoor seating areas.

From the beginning, our vision at Starbucks has been to create a “third place” between home and work where people can come together to enjoy the peace and pleasure of coffee and community. Our values have always centered on building community rather than dividing people, and our stores exist to give every customer a safe and comfortable respite from the concerns of daily life.

We appreciate that there is a highly sensitive balance of rights and responsibilities surrounding America’s gun laws, and we recognize the deep passion for and against the “open carry” laws adopted by many states. (In the United States, “open carry” is the term used for openly carrying a firearm in public.) For years we have listened carefully to input from our customers, partners, community leaders and voices on both sides of this complicated, highly charged issue.

Our company’s longstanding approach to “open carry” has been to follow local laws: we permit it in states where allowed and we prohibit it in states where these laws don’t exist. We have chosen this approach because we believe our store partners should not be put in the uncomfortable position of requiring customers to disarm or leave our stores. We believe that gun policy should be addressed by government and law enforcement—not by Starbucks and our store partners.

Recently, however, we’ve seen the “open carry” debate become increasingly uncivil and, in some cases, even threatening. Pro-gun activists have used our stores as a political stage for media events misleadingly called “Starbucks Appreciation Days” that disingenuously portray Starbucks as a champion of “open carry.” To be clear: we do not want these events in our stores. Some anti-gun activists have also played a role in ratcheting up the rhetoric and friction, including soliciting and confronting our customers and partners.

For these reasons, today we are respectfully requesting that customers no longer bring firearms into our stores or outdoor seating areas—even in states where “open carry” is permitted—unless they are authorized law enforcement personnel.

I would like to clarify two points. First, this is a request and not an outright ban. Why? Because we want to give responsible gun owners the chance to respect our request—and also because enforcing a ban would potentially require our partners to confront armed customers, and that is not a role I am comfortable asking Starbucks partners to take on. Second, we know we cannot satisfy everyone. For those who oppose “open carry,” we believe the legislative and policy-making process is the proper arena for this debate, not our stores. For those who champion “open carry,” please respect that Starbucks stores are places where everyone should feel relaxed and comfortable. The presence of a weapon in our stores is unsettling and upsetting for many of our customers.

I am proud of our country and our heritage of civil discourse and debate. It is in this spirit that we make today’s request. Whatever your view, I encourage you to be responsible and respectful of each other as citizens and neighbors.

Sincerely,

Howard Schultz

Democracy as a religion…

For clarity:

Those who see Democracy as an ideology have forgotten that the torch-bearing mobs in the story of Frankenstein were a Democracy.

The fear-driven townspeople who burnt ‘witches’ in Salem were a Democracy.

The hooded, hate-driven bigots of the KKK were a Democracy.

Regardless of the purest intentions of those individuals participating, Mob Rule is still only brutal thuggishness, multiplied and reinforced by a belief that sheer numbers equate any belief or behavior to Righteousness if bolstered by enough Believers.

“Democracy is two wolves and a goat, voting on what’s for dinner.”

A nation based on LAW, on the other hand, can be reasoned, measured, and delivered — to provide Justice to all equally. To protect the Minority from the Majority.

True, it will still be upheld by imperfect humans; but the alternative is a society made up of successive generations of mobs. Like where we are now.

And where we are going.

Rape, by definition, is non-consensual sex. Harvard isn’t breaking new ground here…

Remember that our dear Great Enabler still refuses, after all this time, to call Army Major Nidal Hasan a ‘terrorist’ (even though he yelled, ‘Allah Akbar’ as he killed his ‘fellow soldiers’, had a long documented history of favoring the politics of his cultural roots to a degree that unnerved his superiors, and has made it clear since the attack that he does not recognize the authority of the United States government to prosecute him) — rather, referring to the attack as ‘workplace violence’ verbally, legislatively, and judicially? The victims of his gunfire still suffer the indignity of being treated as if they only stood too close to a man with anger management issues. No benefits, no Purple Hearts.

Well, the standards that are set by the Most Powerful Man in the Free World do not go unnoticed.

Harvard is too shy to use the word ‘rape’ now — perhaps it’s been deemed politically incorrect, or maybe it believes that if they don’t utter it, it doesn’t exist.

LINK: “Yale officially declares ‘Nonconsensual Sex’ not that big of a deal” (YoungCons.com)

(Quoting Katie J.M. Baker of Jezebel.com): “Based on our analysis of the report, Yale has formally found sufficient evidence against six perpetrators of ‘nonconsensual sex’ so far in 2013. Of these six perpetrators, only one was suspended, and only for one year. Four received ‘written reprimands,’ and one is on “probation.” To summarize: five out of these six perpetrators of rape will graduate with a slap on the wrist (and an Ivy League diploma!) or stay on campus, and the sixth can come back in a year. Hey: most of them were encouraged to seek counseling. That’s thoughtful.”

Understand that when the government, our Media, and all the self-appointed moral arbiters raise their voices and their fists to decry the ownership — the very existence of — guns, they are simultaneously supporting (actually, evangelizing) the abortion of defenseless children. And, they make it as clear as any good propaganda artist can paint, that our government does everything for our own good — and nothing more than that — and that suspicions to the contrary are signs of mental illness.

While they are claiming that Conservatives (specifically, the Republican Party, but who’s to know the difference by way of Katie Couric?) are waging a ‘war on women’, the Left unabashedly topples pillar after pillar of society — our mothers, our families, our churches, our businesses — under the guise of helping women up a ladder in the corporate world which… they also say is Evil.

While they are ‘fixing’ the healthcare industry, banking, manufacturing, and immigration, all of these are being clearly and openly damaged to the point that many decades will be spent repairing what has been so handily demonized and then unplugged ‘for the common good’ in just a few short years.

This is where we are. Dismantled.

Every once in a while our culture needs to pause, and consider whether we like what we see in the mirror. Yale used to be a place that the best of our children could only aspire to — much like Harvard, which is also now just a place that the most well-known thieves and charlatans hail from. When more than half of our culture looks in that mirror — sees this — and says, ‘Yes! We want more of *that*!’, well, we get tools like this Congress, this Media, and our transparently elected Great Enabler to steer, to lead, to inspire.

Is there a way out? Yes — but the solution is not political, social or violent.

It’s moral.

And THAT is what is going to make it so difficult for this country, in whatever form, to accept any steps out of the abyss that are available to us.

Free House — just sign here…

[From the mailbag, another unattributed story with a lesson that has evidently escaped at least half of the country…]

ObamaSigningBillWANT A FREE HOUSE?

I was in my neighborhood restaurant this morning and was seated behind a group of jubilant individuals celebrating the coming implementation of the health care bill. I could not finish my breakfast. This is what ensued: They were a diverse group of several races and both sexes. I heard a young man exclaim, “Isn’t Obama like Jesus Christ? I mean, after all, he is healing the sick.”

A young woman enthusiastically proclaimed, “Yeah, and he does it for free. I cannot believe anyone would think that a free market wouldn’t work for health care.”

Another said, “The stupid Republicans want us all to starve to death so they can inherit all of the power. Obama should be made a Saint for what he did for those of us less fortunate.”

At this, I had more than enough. I arose from my seat, mustering all the restraint I could find, and approached their table. “Please excuse me; may I impose upon you for one moment?”

They smiled and welcomed me to the conversation. I stood at the end of their table, smiled as best I could and began an experiment.

FreeHouse“I would like to give one of you my house. It will cost you no money and I will pay all of the expenses and taxes for as long as you live there. Anyone interested?”

They looked at each other in astonishment. “Why would you do something like that?” asked a young man, “There isn’t anything for free in this world.” They began to laugh at me, as they did not realize this man had just made my point.

“I am serious, I will give you my house for free, no money whatsoever. Anyone interested?”

In unison, a resounding “Yeah” fills the room.

“Since there are too many of you, I will have to make a choice as to who receives this money-free bargain.”

I noticed an elderly couple was paying attention to the spectacle unfolding before their eyes, the old man shaking his head in apparent disgust.

“I tell you what; I will give it to the one of you most willing to obey my rules.”

Again, they looked at one another, an expression of bewilderment on their faces.

The perky young woman asked, “What are the rules?”

handoutsI smiled and said, “I don’t know. I have not yet defined them. However, it is a free home that I offer you.”

They giggled amongst themselves, the youngest of which said, “What an old coot. He must be crazy to give away his home. Go take your meds, old man.”

I smiled and leaned into the table a bit further. “I am serious, this is a legitimate offer.”

They gaped at me for a moment.

“I’ll take it you old fool. Where are the keys?” boasted the youngest among them.

“Then I presume you accept ALL of my terms then?” I asked.

The elderly couple seemed amused and entertained as they watched from the privacy of their table. “Oh yeah! Where do I sign up?”

I took a napkin and wrote, “I give this man my home, without the burden of financial obligation, so long as he accepts and abides by the terms that I shall set forth upon consummation of this transaction.”

I signed it and handed it to the young man who eagerly scratched out his signature.

“Where are the keys to my new house?” he asked in a mocking tone of voice.

All eyes were upon us as I stepped back from the table, pulling the keys from my pocket and dangling them before the excited new homeowner.

“Now that we have entered into this binding contract, witnessed by all of your friends, I have decided upon the conditions you are obligated to adhere to from this point forward. You may only live in the house for one hour a day.

You will not use anything inside of the home. You will obey me without question or resistance. I expect complete loyalty and admiration for this gift I bestow upon you. You will accept my commands and wishes with enthusiasm, no matter the nature. Your morals and principles shall be as mine. You will vote as I do, think as I do and do it with blind faith.

These are my terms. Here are your keys.” I reached the keys forward and the young man looked at me dumbfounded.

irs_welfare_money_381255“Are you out of your mind? Who would ever agree to those ridiculous terms?” the young man appeared irritated.

“You did when you signed this contract before reading it, understanding it and with the full knowledge that I would provide my conditions only after you committed to the agreement.”

The elderly man chuckled as his wife tried to restrain him. I was looking at a now silenced and bewildered group of people.

“You can shove that stupid deal up your ass old man. I want no part of it!” exclaimed the now infuriated young man.

‘You have committed to the contract, as witnessed by all of your friends. You cannot get out of the deal unless I agree to it. I do not intend to let you free now that I have you ensnared. I am the power you agreed to. I am the one you blindly and without thought chose to enslave yourself to. In short, I am your Master.”

At this, the table of celebrating individuals became a unified group against the unfairness of the deal.

After a few moments of unrepeatable comments and slurs, I revealed my true intent.

“What I did to you is what this administration and congress did to you with the health care legislation. I easily suckered you in and then revealed the real cost of the bargain. Your folly was in the belief that you can have something you did not earn, and for that which you did not earn, you willingly allowed someone else to think for you. Your failure to research, study and inform yourself permitted reason to escape you. You have entered into a trap from which you cannot flee. Your only chance of freedom is if your new Master gives it to you. A freedom that is given can also be taken away. Therefore, it is not freedom at all.”

i-want-your-moneyWith that, I tore up the napkin and placed it before the astonished young man. “This is the nature of your new health care legislation.”

I turned away to leave these few in thought and contemplation — and was surprised by applause.

The elderly gentleman, who was clearly entertained, shook my hand enthusiastically and said, “Thank you, Sir. These kids don’t understand Liberty.”

He refused to allow me to pay my bill as he said, “You earned this one. It is an honor to pick up the tab.”

I shook his hand in thanks, leaving the restaurant somewhat humbled and sensing a glimmer of hope for my beloved country.

Remember… Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

She SHOT and KILLED her assailant? HOW HORRIBLE!!!

549505_226289400853259_1823456370_nCivilians aren’t in competition with the police — but also, we are not ‘in addition to’ the protections provided by the police. Rather, the police force’s ability to serve the community is ‘in addition to’ our own responsiblity to protect the lives of ourselves and that of those around us.

To believe that we should just LAY DOWN AND DIE (because self-defense is not any of our business) is an idea only of those who believe that the State is more important than Life itself — which is not just opposite what freedom and clarity was claimed in the Declaration of Independence… but also opposite of the idea that God has Created us (the State is only a creation of Mankind — a lesser thing than what God has put on this Earth by His own hand).

Margaret Sanger had a plan to use Black Preachers to help kill Black Babies. Now, we have Black ‘Leaders’ motivated to kill Black People of ALL AGES for the sake of their own egos. ‘Progress’?

That whirring sound you hear, seemingly from all directions, is the millions of babies spinning in their graves — along with hundreds of thousands of young people lured to a violent death attached to ‘glory’, ‘reputation’, and ‘keepin it real’ — all by supplanting real enemies of Americans with ‘constructed threats’; making it so difficult to see when we are really in jeopardy because we are so blinded by the manufactured rage that is delivered to us, on the silver platter of the silver screen, and from the pulpits of commandeered microphones and talk-show couches every day.

65170_306318092813339_1469125691_nLiberal social policies have kept many (but not all) minorities as ‘engineered subcultures’ in these United States. Just think where we would be socially, financially, civicly, and academically all around the nation if Social Engineers (none any better morally than Margaret Sanger) had left us to grow on our own?

Today, they work even harder to propagandize each newly-arriving generation — they’re in a panic that the masses have begun to notice the effects of letting the illuminati control the population. Back before the Republican Party began their work, it was referred to as White Man’s Burden — now Race has little to do with it; but control of the public wealth, public health, public food supply, public energy resources, and public indoctrination, still does.

Funny how the public’s SAFETY is not as much a priority for them as they preach every election cycle — or we might see actual border security and less framing of self-defense as a social crime.

Funny how the public’s SUSTAINABILITY is not as important as they make out in their press conferences, or they would be talking about education and skill-building more than control over healthcare and wealth redistribution.

Funny how we are, as a nation, still so bent on saving the rest of the world — when we do not currenty know how to feed the people right here within our own States.

If you could find me the most Racist person alive today on this planet — it would be a very small matter to show with facts, figures, and their own words — to explain how Al Sharpton and Barack Obama have been personally responsible for more hatred and more death than that identified Racist… and yet we are to revere the men or be castigated as Racists ourselves.

To what, seeing our nation’s plunge into the darkness and Evil of these Godless men, do we cling to for national pride and generational hope? It is clearly the goal of these men — be they masterminds or minions — to dismantel all that is good, and any ideal that is moral.

SEAN LEVINSON of EliteDaily.com shows us what is Wrong with Reporting these days

You know how I KNOW that the person who penned this article doesn’t have a clue about this case? Because of the phrase he uses, “self-defense claim based around the Stand Your Ground law”.

SYG is news because Al Sharpton, Bloomberg, and the Great Enabler have been chatting it up every time someone mentions this case. But, the Zimmerman Defense never mentioned or used this rule in their arguments — neither did the Prosecution claim that SYG had any bearing on what happened. Never did the judge talk about this rule and how it affected how the jury needed to do their jobs.

Sean-Levinson_ToolOfTheLeftYou see, SYD is an issue IF THERE IS A POINT AT WHICH AN ARMED PERSON HAS TO DECIDE WHETHER TO *STAY* AND FIGHT, OR *RUN* — and NO ONE (not Zimmerman, and not a single witness, and not a single shred of evidence) EVER said that Zimmerman had an OPPORTUNITY to decide whether to run.

His CHOICE (by the time he was being attacked, and REGARDLESS of the events that led to that point) was to LIVE or DIE — SYG is irrelevant, and you bringing it up here SHOWS that you are not familiar with the CASE, but instead chose to base your understanding of it on RHETORIC NOT RELEVANT TO THE CASE.

If this error in the article was not out of ignorance, then that means it was done to suit the ‘anti-self-defense’ agenda that the Left has been hitting with wild abandon of late.

YOU, sir, are why the phrase ‘Journalism Is Dead’ is heard so often in this generation.

Bambi

I am reminded of a story told by a visiting pastor years ago in one of our home church services. He explained that as children, he and his wife had both been traumatized by the experience of seeing Bambi lose a parent, and were cautious about letting their own young children, a boy and a girl, see the film.

But one day, they rented the tape, and sat on either side of their little ones; holding them, ready to dry the tears and be the most supportive parents they could possibly be.

They watched their youngsters through the whole ordeal, and saw their little girl stifle a whimper; while their boy sat stoically silent until the end.

As the credits rolled, they turned to them and asked whether they had any questions about the story. Their daughter wiped a single tear and nodded that she would be fine.

The little boy, after a moment to think, brightened up and exclaimed, “Can we go hunting?!??!?!?”
