What more can I say, except that our Fore-Fathers will be disgusted with the way our Country is right now. I wouldn't be suprise if they are rolling in their graves sick with the way we treat our Constitution. The U.S Constitution is a foundation that our Country is set apon. Something that they risked their lives for. They knew what the Deculation of Independance and Constitution would do for the world, and what it would do for the people. We don't know what it was like living under another country's rule, but I do know that it wasn't something the People of the United States or the Colonies wanted to live. If we understand the Constitution, we'll learn what our Fore-Fathers sought for.

I feel a deep swell of pity for anybody so foolish as to disarm themselves before their enemies...and reality check, people! YOU ALWAYS HAVE ENEMIES!! Even if you don't know them yet. Such is the nature of the world we live in. There will always be those who seek to do you harm for whatever reasons they may have, and it is your responsibility and your responsibility alone to defend you and yours. Do not make the foolish error in judgement of thinking that someone else will defend you; for it is a very stupid person who blindly puts their safety in the hands of others; especially those who are pawns of a flawed and corrupt system such as what exists in this thing we call government.

The police are not your first line of defense. The military is not your first line of defense. YOU are your first line of defense. YOU are responsible for you, and the sooner all you weak-minded, weak-spirited spineless worms wake up and realize this the better off we'll all be...namely 'cause the rest of us will no longer have to endure your childish whining.

To be prepared for war is the most effective way to maintain peace. Gun Control DOES NOT keep law-abiding citizens safe. It DOES NOT keep guns out of the hands of criminals. It just makes gullible suckers more easy targets for those who don't give a damn about the laws, and the corrupt swine who abuse the laws for their own selfish ends. Keep your guns! Because nothing wards off criminals and tyrants like a bullet to the head.

And if you are one of those brainless sheeple too feeble-minded understand the importance of this infallible truth, then you had best prepare yourself to succumb to the effects of Darwinism.

If you disagree with the views expressed here, please be sure to read my Policy Statement BEFORE you post: [link]

I realize my position on this issue is going to offend many. Before you start ranting however, do yourself a favor and take a few minutes to read some history about why the Framers wrote the Second Amendment the way they did and why they were so concerned that average people have unfettered access to military-style weapons. Stephen Halbrook has an excellent history of the pre-Revolutionary events that led to the framing of the Second Amendment here: [link]

If any class of personal firearms is deserving of and is in fact Constitutionally protected, it is semi-automatic rifles including civilian versions of the military M-14, M-16, and M-4 rifles; in other words, the A-15. Indeed, the Supreme Court ruled in United States v. Miller (1939) that a sawed-off shotgun was not to be protected under the Second Amendment because "In the absence of any evidence tending to show that possession or use of a 'shotgun having a barrel of less than eighteen inches in length' at this time has some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia, we cannot say that the Second Amendment guarantees the right to keep and bear such an instrument."

Thus, by extension, military-style semi-automatic rifles such as the AR-15 are protected precisely because they do have such a reasonable relationship to the preservation of a well-regulated militia.

The Second Amendment is not about duck hunting. It is not even wholly about personal self-defense. It is about every able-bodied citizen being (1) well-trained in the use of firearms and (2) in personal possession of same (this is the meaning of "well-regulated") should they be called upon to provide for the common defense in times of insurrection, invasion, or other national emergencies. And most of all, the Second Amendment was included because the Founders explicitly desired to assure that the people could resist assaults upon their liberty from a government that had turned against its own citizens. This was their experience with the British -- an escalating pattern of warrantless searches and seizures of persons and things at and away from their homes culminating in the British attempt to seize the personal weapons stored in the homes of some 30 colonists in Lexington, Massachusetts. We all remember how that particular infringement worked out for our British friends.

Many people are fond of quoting V's famous line, "People should not fear their governments; governments should fear their people." The Second Amendment is the guarantor of that ideal.

I do not feel that we have descended into tyranny quite yet. Yet, if you think about what has happened in this country in recent years -- NDAA, rendition, organized and officially sanctioned torture, H.R. 347, CISPA, illegal surveillance, warrantless intercepts of telephone and email, the militarization of local police forces, and, claims by the President of his right to assassinate American citizens (and his actually doing so), to unilaterally strip them of their citizenship and deport or rendition them, one cannot help but wonder about the wisdom of denying people access to the very weapons that one day may have to be called upon to defend their liberty. Although it is fashionable for progressives to poo-poo this line of thought as paranoid, both our own history and the history of Western democracy from the time of Magna Carta teach the lesson that liberty is best safeguarded by an armed populace that can serve as a counterweight to the State's claim to a monopoly on the sanctioned use of violence to achieve political ends.

Having said all of this, I want everyone to understand that I was horrified by the events in Newtown, Connecticut. However, none of the specific proposals put forth by Senator Feinstein, the White House, and the anti-gun lobby -- a ban on "assault weapons," restrictions on magazine capacity, and closing the so-called "gun show loophole" -- would have prevented the tragedy in Newtown. And further, understand that even if those proposals become law they will do nothing to remove the literally millions of these weapons and the high capacity magazines that have already been lawfully manufactured. Those would be grandfathered in and would remain legal. Only manufacture or importation after the effective date of the proposed legislation would be prohibited.

The NRA is right: properly trained armed security might have prevented what new gun laws cannot. That's why armed security is already present at one-third of America's schools. Mr. LaPierre was not talking about deploying untrained amateurs. The NRA, with 11,000 professional police firearms trainers, does most of the firearms training for police today. Mr. LaPierre proposed deploying them to train people with appropriate backgrounds for these volunteer assignments.

One other thing would have prevented Adam Lanza's rampage -- a gun safe. That his mother chose to keep firearms and ammunition unsecured in a home where a developmentally disabled and possibly mentally ill young adult also lived strikes me as the soul of irresponsibility. If she was concerned enough to tell a babysitter "don't turn your back on him," and was apparently considering committing him to a psychiatric facility, shouldn't common sense have dictated that she keep her weapons under lock and key?

"The right of self-defense is the first law of nature . . . . Wherever . . . the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction."

-- St. George Tucker, American Patriot

Some people wonder whether the stuff I took from liberallogic101.com is mine, so it's time to settle all doubt as to whether I make stuff of my own!

Worried About National Security?

The first quote "You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass." might've not actually been said by the Japanese Admiral, Isoroku Yamamoto during World War 2, but the second one certainly was,
"I fear that all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve."

But whichever history says is true, it shows what truly keeps America safe and it isn't a government goon squad of bullies (police and military) but a well armed citizenry willing to fight for liberty. Should be even more helpful these days since the weaponry we can have is much more advanced.

However the government has other plans to disarm us of our last resort negotiation tool which is the power of force. They go about using protecting the kids or national security as an excuse for the ridiculous legislation while they have bodyguards armed to the teeth. Then the terrorists. A whole country wouldn't invade us, you think a small group of bearded brown men in Turbans will? Logic would dictate otherwise. But people believe a plane crash brought down two giant towers in the year 2001, so there's a place for checking peoples' heads for remains of thinking for themselves.

The best national security we have is the citizen militia to put checks on national threats domestic and abroad. This time it looks like the biggest threats are domestic coming from our very politicians supposedly sworn to protect these rights. Hopefully when the time comes, the sleeping giant Yamamoto described still has one last fight in him when SHTF.

Hopefully you the reader will be part of the giant's awakening.

Not my work, but it is worth spreading around.

This is not Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union or Communist China. This is Boston, Mass., USA.

Even with the victories of the last year we in the United States are being slowly encroached upon by by statists interested in gaining more power and influence.

The fight against tyranny never ends. If you can read this, you are the resistance.

Public Schools - Yah, cuz the amazingly GREAT education our kids get by teachers who drag them to protests asking for more money and more rights for their union is TOTALLY worth 1.5x what it would cost to send every last one of them to private schools.

Comparing the amazing quality of graduates from our nations public institutions to those coming from private schools ANYONE can see how much value we get for our educational dollar!

This is why I laugh whenever I see one of those bumper stickers that says it'll be a great day when our schools are fully funded and the Air Force has to hold a bake sale to buy another bomber.

How much MORE money to they want for their very sub-standard product? How much MORE money do they want to fail to educate our kids?

Couldn't find any good stamps to support Ron Paul, so I went ahead and made one. Hopefully it gives off a quality that compliments what he stands for and the strength of his character against the odds of today's political climate.

From WattsUpWithThat:

Rick McKee, editorial cartoonist for the Augusta Chronicle, sends me this political cartoon about climate change which he posted on his Facebook page and the WUWT Facebook page.

It sums up perfectly what is wrong with our current political leadership: they are more worried about climate change than they are immediate threats with a clear and present danger.

According to Breitbart, Hillary Clinton made the comments at a recent paid for speaking engagement in Las Vegas. I guess when you get that kind of money, you’ll say anything for hire.

Debates are voluntary, not mandatory. People reserve the right to not give a flying fuck. Your approval is not needed for someone to think, feel and express themselves authentically; even if they authentically believe that alien space raccoons are trying to take over the world, or if they faithfully insist that you have a small dick. As long as they present their statements in admission that it is THEIR PERSPECTIVE and THEIR RIGHT TO HAVE IT, then they can believe whatever the hell they want and they are not obligated to present you with evidence. Having an opinion, feelings or systems of belief is not "disinfo". Its called individuality. If you don't respect individuality, you're a cock sucking nazi. And, thats our opinion. Not an absolute fact, merely an individuated perspective of reality; equal to all others which exist :icontrollfaceplz:

Before any Arabs get offended and mas gets angry, I do think Israel and Palestine should just learn to accept the other, the world doesn't revolve around the Arabs or the Jews.
and Palestine has the same right as Israel to exist.
