I Hate This

"Assault weapons laws resemble hate speech laws. Hate speech laws usually begin by targeting a few words that almost no one approves. Once the system for controlling and punishing “hate speech” is put into place, there is little or nothing to stop it from expanding to punish more and more types of everyday speech. Similarly, once an assault weapons law is on the books, there is little to prevent politicians from vastly increasing the number of weapons banned under the law. The main effect of banning assault weapons is to give government an excuse to arrest and imprison millions of Americans while doing little or nothing to reduce crime. America has a limited number of police, and politicians must decide who the real public enemies are. If Mr. Clinton signs an assault weapons ban, it could signal the start of an attack on gun owners’ constitutional rights that could far surpass all previous gun bans."-- James BovardAmerican author, lecturer

We have been fortunate in riposting these efforts.  So far.  But there is a tendency to lump us all together those of us who value Freedom, into knuckle dragging 'right wingers'.  The list of offenses is long and egregious.  I hate these real haters.

They finger point and cherry pick re hate.  And in that plus their tendency to lump us all together is their weakness and downfall.

I urge you to counter them and show them as they really are.

Whatever you believe, there is a Biblical passage encouraging people to 'hate what is evil'.

What is more evil than the illogic and thin skin of our accusers?

Be sure, shine the light on real hatred and get ready to have 'rhino skin' against the slings and arrows of outrageous fools.

The attacks continue and what Bovard said is ever recrudescent.

Be even moreso.


It was a television series in the mid 60's that ran five years.  It's success doubtless had to do with the fact that the events portrayed had taken place just twenty years before.  Many kids then had Dads who had fought in WW2 or many men and women who helped in the war effort.  Certainly there were many who experienced that time firsthand.

The show illustrated the daily grind of the many missions which made up the whole, the objective of victory.

Talk to those who took the oath then and now.  Learn that singular purpose made up of all who seek victory aka Restoration of the Republic.

Like the Freedom sought in the past, the brushfires in the minds of many will lead to a world not just US, but a world that is Free, self determining, from many One.  What a 'one world' that would be -s-.

The Rain On The Rock

Ray Bradbury dying got me to thinking.  His writing always did.  I read his stuff in grade school.  Not in school, but at the library and at home.  And in light of how schooling has nosedived, how we homeschooled our kids, here are a couple of statements from Bradbury with which I agree:

'Libraries raised me. I don't believe in colleges and universities. I believe in libraries because most students don't have any money. When I graduated from high school, it was during the Depression and we had no money. I couldn't go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years.'

'You can’t learn to write in college. It’s a very bad place for writers because the teachers always think they know more than you do—and they don’t.'

There are teachers who, worth their weight in gold, point you on the way and leave you to develop on your own.

Two of the greatest, Heinlein and Bradbury, have inspired me to be my best.

As for the rain on the rock, it is not a fabian socialist steady erosion of Freedom.  It is the constant drip, drip, drip that wears away the collectivists, that erodes the disease seeking to eat us up.

Read about these great writers.

Add your own drops to the resistance as we wear down the wearers.

And hey, don't be a clone of Bradbury nor anyone else.

Be yourself.

Moving Pictures

I will not let a monster destroy my life, my faith, my rights.

It seems a worthy thought in light of the Aurora shootings.

And I'm not even mentioning the perp's name nor much about his behavior.  I prefer to remember the victims.  There is too much emphasis on the killers.  And there is never enough discussion of reasons.

Is there a deadening of feelings due to video games and movies?  Ultra violence permeates society.  We wallow in vicarious death.  But is it explanation aplenty?  I think some kids etc are conditioned and it's debatable if people can be made sociopaths.  If I recall, some of the audience thought the perp and his actions initially were a stunt.  After the movie started? Uh-uh.

I'm not gonna waste time talking about what I'd do, except mention I'd probably ignore the stupid no guns rule.  The perp did, knowing he'd have a target rich environment.  I would defend myself.  How etc would depend on the given circumstances.

What's interesting is the timing.  The UN gun treaty was being debated.  What a lovely fulcrum to lever support for it.  Also, along with legally raping the Reese family (gunstore owners), it might take attention away from an obviously criminal Attorney General (and President) and the gov's gunwalking whoas.

Of course the usual suspects moan and groan that we need more gun control.  Ad nauseum in the extreme, the blood dancing continues.  The attending arrogance is everywhere.

I encountered it on Facebook.  couldn't resist some sarcasm re flea markets and gunshows.  There are the more insidious.

The cheek of some who play the old card of Repubs bad, Demos good is hilarious if not for the apparent seriousness of tone.  They are actually just socialist polls, stringing gullibles along.  And yes there are plenty of decent people who place their hope in such, denying the truth.

Moreso, one of them  declared all veterans, seeing the horrors of combat,  know 'assault weapons' are just for killing and should be banned from use except for police and military.  Sops are given to a gutted conciliatory Second Amendment for the nazilike 'sporting purpose' (which was gone after later).  This gentleman who purportedly believes the rhetoric, certainly is NOT keeping his oath.  The Constitution is subject to 'interpretation', which means its eventual eradication in the name of progress aka communism.

I'm  happy to note as of this moment the UN treaty seemes temporarily scuttled.  Efforts by the occupier of the Oval Office have gone underground again and others' attempts are not getting traction.

Some of us are indeed connizant of the fact our enemies never sleep and that we must sleep less.  There are those confronting the BS.  Our usual suspects (lol), Codrea and vanderboegh and so many more are not letting the criminals get away with this.

One other note.  I believe sociopathy is cultivated and many cross a line who would not save for the triggers in place.

My kids play games and have guns.  They know the difference between fantasy and reality.  they also know how to defend themselves.

And they sure as hell don't blame guns nor any other social triggers for what happens.

We and so many more are willing to confront both the liars and the dupes, toe to toe.  It made certain people on Facebook wary of me for instance.

Let's keep up the momentum.
