“Kill The NRA!”

20 February 2018

Well ain’t that just grand! I would like the libtardian geniuses blathering that the NRA is responsible for “gun violence” to show me one – just one! – NRA member who has committed any sort of mass shooting or other such atrocity with their legally-owned, well maintained firearm(s). Just one. I’ll wait right here…

What? No takers? There’s a reason for that. If you use concealed carry permit holders as a surrogate for NRA membership*, and you analyze actual crime statistics – and I’m not saying just “gun violence”; all crimes – the number of NRA members that have been convicted of crimes is an absolutely trivial component of US crime statistics. And, as a percentage of total membership, it minuscule when compared with the percentage of US citizens convicted of just gun crimes. And the VAST majority of those CCP/CPL holders on record will have been charged with “procedural” violations of their permit, such as carrying in an establishment in which alcohol is sold, or carrying in a venue seating more than XXXX people – things simply designed to trip the permit holder up.

So let’s kill the NRA. Let’s kill an organization that promotes gun safety, and provides gun safety training – especially to children. Let’t kill an organization that promote wildlife and wildlife habitat conservation. Let’s kill an organization that protects our right to bear arms, which is the right which protects all of the others. Don’t believe that last bit? BLIMEY! You have only to look to Britain where citizens are regularly fined and jailed over what they’ve said or written – most recent case in point, a woman arrested for leaving a note on an ambulance. Total gun confiscation certainly has its benefits to the “ruling class”, and that’s why it is all you hear from the leftist-controlled media and our “betters” in the DNC. It ain’t bout your safety. And it ain’t about the children (if they were interested in the children, there’d be guards in every school and no abortionists). It’s about POWER OVER YOU. Power that’s hard to gain when the armed civilian population is far greater in number than the military.

And last, this: There have been more people affiliated with the DNC who were responsible for mass murder than there have been those affiliated with the NRA. Notably, the DNC is well known for their support of gun control, up to and including confiscation. It’s part of their platform. Let that sink in for a minute or two…

* No-one is asked if they are a NRA member when arrested, but a CCP/CPL is public record, and the majority of CCP/CPL holders are affiliated with organizations such as the NRA. Also, through personal experience, every fellow CPL holder I’ve met are also members of NRA, NAGR, or state/local 2nd Amendment-supporting organizations.

Here we go again…

Another maniac opens fire in a school, and the conversation devolves into one of “getting guns off the streets” and of “gun violence” and similar. Notably, these efforts are not possible,  nor are they likely to prevent some imbalanced yahoo from going on a killing spree.

Why won’t these talking heads and other gun control advocate entertain the more rational approach of having armed protectors in the schools? What about educating the teachers and children into effective means of defending themselves and each other – or, simply, means of evacuating the premises?

Why will we entertain the argument that someone with a firearm shooting back may hit the innocent when THE PERSON FIRING ON THE INNOCENT IS MOST DEFINITELY HITTING THE INNOCENT? I personally am sick to death of this “societal norm” that thinks it better that our children be sitting duck than there be someone with them to, at the very least, limit the effectiveness of some lunatic with a gun.

So, fellow parents, grandparents, and rational citizens of this fine country: can we please turn the conversation in a direction that will preserve lives instead of promoting gun control? Please?!

What happened?

13 February 2018

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed round

I can’t help but wonder what has become of the US postal service. From carriers who, instead of walking up to the porch with your package and ringing the bell to obtain a signature, pop a notice sheet in your box saying you need to go to the past office to pick it up, to those too skittish to deliver mail from the window of their vehicle into your mailbox because they’re afraid to get stuck in the snow. What happened? When did they become these mewling panty waists?

And they wonder why they’re deemed uncompetitive. Never once has FedEx, UPS, DHL, or Purolator, refused to deliver. Never once have they simply slapped a tag into my mailbox rather than performing the due diligence required of their jobs.

Maybe it was just a run of lousy employees the last several years, as I see the delivery person today is not the same as the last several months (who was not the same as the one from the past several years), but I doubt it.

Ah, well.

“When the Democrats are in power, Republicans appear to be the conservative party. But when Republicans are in power, it seems there is no conservative party.” —Sen. Rand Paul

There is only ONE possible response to such a statement: Amen, brother. Amen…

The Irony Is Palpable…

“The reason Congress is facing a 5th stop-gap budget bill is because the Republican majority is incompetent.” —Nancy Pelosi

Oh? So what does this make the democratic majority which couldn’t formulate a budget for six years? Why only six, you ask? Because there was a Republican majority in the House beginning with that seventh year, and you, Nancy, were ousted as speaker.

Nancy, thy very name is incompetence. Go stare at yourself in the mirror. If your image doesn’t terrify you into a deeper stupor than you seem to be in lately,  perhaps you can spend some time in quality introspection. Or, at least, get whatever that is from between your teeth. You know: that thing you were working at during the entire SOTU speech…

A very sad day, indeed…

30 January 2018

The House Intelligence Committee voted on Monday to release a classified memo circulating in Congress that reveals government surveillance abuses so severe that Watergate looks like a civil infraction. The vote to release the document was on party lines; i.e, no democrat voted for its release.

“(A) very sad day, I think, in the history of this committee.” – Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA)

It begs the question: why would NONE of the democrats on the committee vote to make such abuses public? One would think that exposing these highly illegal practices publicly, and excoriating the perpetrators would serve to help curb any future enthusiasm for similar abuses. One would think that evidence that such abuses occurred, but are being swiftly and appropriately dealt with would bolster public trust in the government.

Oh, wait. It all occurred under their watch; under a democrat administration.  An historic democrat administration which saw the first mixed-race president in office. An historic democrat administration already infamous for its abuses of power and extra-Constitutional activities. An historic democrat administration which worked to destroy our system of healthcare, eliminate any hope of energy independence, destroyed our country’s prestige abroad, pandered to – and funded – sponsors of islamic terror, and decimated our economy. An historic democrat administration which vilified law enforcement, and set race relations back to the dark ages. And now, with these revelations: an historic democrat administration which oversaw an abuse of government law enforcement faculties never before seen in this country.

Now I understand. It is indeed a sad, sad day in which politicians continue to protect their party at the expense of their country. Thank you for making that clear to me, Rep. Schiff.

Golly! I feel safer already! Thanks, Nancy!

“People don’t understand — the one problem I think the current occupant of the White House — they don’t understand that sanctuary cities is [sic] what helps law enforcement. It helps public safety.” —Nancy Pelosi

Nancy, Nancy, Nancy… The only way sanctuary cities help law enforcement is by concentrating them in one area for ICE to round up – which, by the way: you oppose, and which is contrary to why sanctuary cities exit. I can conceive of no possible way in which sanctuary cities helps public safety. How did it help Officer Don Johnston? Jill Sundberg?  Kate Steinle? How about those robbed by illegal aliens? Raped by them? Assaulted by them? Injured or killed in traffic accidents with them?

You see, Nancy, if they weren’t here none would have been injured by them! Sanctuary cities merely enable them to remain here and exposes US citizens – those you are sworn to protect by your oath of office – to potential harm by them.

Now, don’t get me wrong: I don’t for a minute believe that every individual who comes into this country illegally is a criminal in any other way than having broken our immigration rules (noting, of course, that they are criminals within the US simply by breaking our immigration laws); however, there simply is a disproportionate number of illegal aliens incarcerated for violent crimes than for other populations within the country.

And it’s unfair to expel illegal aliens? Excuse me?! I agree that the children of illegals are in this country usually by no choice of their own; however, that does not make it my responsibility to make them whole in any way. There are MANY of our citizens who do not have it anywhere as good as a lot of these illegals. Take care of those you swore to protect first. Then worry about those outside; but only those who follow our laws to get here. We uproot invasive species along our highways universally – we don’t leave the seedlings because they were here through no fault of their own.

Also, the US Constitution applies to US citizens. Those who are not US citizens absolutely do not have constitutional rights. They must be treated as laid out in international law, but they do not have citizenship conferred upon them just because they managed to get on your side of the border.

A parting question: I wonder how many US citizens living within these sanctuary cities support the designation? Or were these designated through political fiat only?

Uh-huh…

“I woke up this morning in Hawaii with ten minutes to live. It was a false alarm, but a real psychic warning. If we allow this one-man Gomorrah and his corrupt Republican congress to continue alienating the world we are headed for suffering beyond all imagination.” —actor Jim Carrey

Uh-huh. Sure. The idiot that triggered the alarm in Hawaii had nothing to do with it. The li’l fat boy in NK, Kim Jong-un, would NEVER have thought about obtaining nuclear weapons and threatening the US if Trump wasn’t in office. Yup.

Well, for the record, if you need to blame someone other than whatever numbnuts triggered the alarm, the true “blame” sits firmly on Ol’ Billy-Bob Clinton for playing with oddly flavored cigars rather than pushing back on NK when he should have. And, also for the record: actors, comedians, etc. are only considered “leaders” by the left. The rest of us see you only as entertainers, and really don’t place a lot of value on any opinions you might have, which is to say: no more value than placed on any other person who is not in position to really know anything about which they speak.  And, a final point for the record: just because you have a microphone doesn’t mean you’re right.

So, Mr. Carrey: please go back to Canada and Prime Minister Centerfold who, like Obama, makes huge payouts to terrorists while ignoring his own people. Your acting, all the way back to “In Living Color”, has always been over-the-top histrionics – not to say I haven’t enjoyed some of it –  so I’m not surprised that your opinion would be, too. Please go home. Your far-left PM needs your support, and we have all the natural-born leftists we need.

ANYTHING to detract…

12 January 2018

Libtards! Libtards! Calm yourselves! A country or a continent are not races. Haiti is, in fact, a shit hole. As is the majority of Africa. Also much of the middle east, Asia, and huge swaths of Europe. The worst places in the US look like resort towns compared to the majority of the remaining world. Find something substantive to focus your angst upon – like all the damage your beloved Previous Occupant did to the black community, race relations, our economy, and our standing within the world. Please! You’re embarrassing yourselves…

Ladies, ladies…

9 January 2018

It strikes me funny that all the “ladies” in Hollywood are on an all-out, no-holds-barred crusade against sexual misconduct by the men around them, and then they parade around in such modest garments as these:

 

Now, no-one can say that they are not right to pursue and purge such deviants; however, the manner in which one dresses DOES, whether you wish to acknowledge it or not, drive certain opinions and attitudes regarding the person wearing said garments. For instance, someone dressed like this:

bum

is likely a bum, and will most likely ask you for a handout. Someone dressed like this:

gs

is likely a girl scout, and will try to sell you cookies.

What are YOU dressed like, Hollywood ladies?
