Bumper Sticker Logic and Other Ranting

Hello all. It’s been a while, I know. As you may remember from the last post, the workload from both the personal and professional lives has increased almost exponentially. That means there isn’t much time left to vent intelligently here.

To paraphrase a couple of people I know, I hate bumper-sticker logic except when it’s dead on. And quite frankly, some of the memes I’ve seen floating around are not only dead on, but so dead-on it hurts.

And then there are events and people that get me going so bad that I think I’m going to stroke out because of the sudden increase of blood pressure. These situations are so bizarre that common sense is nowhere to be found. Needless to say, most of this is coming from our elected officials who seem to be hell-bent on destroying this country.

So, without further ado, let’s get started.


Watched the House Managers walk the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate, and it reminded me of a perp walk…which probably isn’t too far from the truth given that Schiff and Nadler were in the lead…


Watching Pelosi sign the aforementioned Articles of Impeachment with a billion and one pens with her name engraved on them was surreal at best. After the signing, she handed the pens out to various people in attendance, smiling all the time. One would expect a solemn occasion, not a celebration with party favors.

Thought Ted Cruz said it best when he stated the Pelosi should have used crayons instead of pens…


“A Generation that has been taught to hate the country will refuse to defend it. Let that sink in…”


Anyone who is concerned with individual rights guaranteed by the Constitution should be dismayed at the situation in Virginia. For those uninformed…

Virginia elected a majority of Democrat/Socialists into both the State House and Senate, and have a Democrat as governor. The Democrat/Socialists stated first act is to declare that gun control is the first order of business.

Now not a single one of the proposed gun control measures has crime control in their scope. Instead, it’s a sweeping banning/registration/confiscation of firearms from law abiding Virginians, and has a dose of extreme protection order (aka red flag laws) on the top like a cherry. Overnight, millions of Virginians would become felons if the proposed laws pass into law.

It doesn’t matter that the proposed laws are in opposition of Virginia’s Constitution – the laws must be passed to satisfy Governor Northram’s pledge of fealty to Micheal Bloomburg, who dumped millions of dollars into the Virginia elections on the behalf of Virginian Democrat/Socialists. There must be payback once the ring is kissed…

The Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) is having their annual Lobby Day (not a protest) on the capitol grounds, but the Governor has declared an emergency stating that firearms cannot be carried on the capital grounds (it’s lawful to do so).

The Virginia Governor has declared war on the rights of the citizens of his state, and it’s anyone’s guess how this is going to turn out. I’m going to make an educated guess that some laws will pass, those laws will be challenged in court, and either be overturned on Constitutional grounds, or the People of Virginal will elect a Republican legislature the next election cycle with the expressed purpose of removing those laws.

Of course, 20/20 hindsight should tell everyone not to elect Democrat/Socialists to offices, especially those backed by out-of-state billionaires.


From an undocumented article published after the West Freeway Church of Christ shooting:

Well, it happened again in Texas. Evil walks into church with a gun and starts shooting wanting to kill. This time the good guys were prepared and ended the evil act within seconds using their own guns, killing the evil person.

We all know what happens next. The leftist media will trot out politicians and law enforcement administrators to tell us how we must pass more laws on guns, ban guns, or whatever irrelevant nonsense they can up with.

This Texas incident can teach us many things. But one thing it demonstrates very well is that it’s not the gun itself that’s the problem here. There were several guns in that church in Texas. One was used for evil and others were used to stop evil. Was one gun bad and the other gun good? Why does the left want to eliminate them all? The good guys gun did exactly what it was supposed to do; protect the flock and defeat evil. The bad guys gun was misused for evil. It is so obvious that the gun is not the problem, THE PROBLEM IS THE PERSON AND NOT THE GUN!

There is also a lesson here on gun free zones and I have written on it before. In a gun free zone, the evil person with a gun can kill indiscriminately and at will knowing there is no one there to stop him. Thank God churches are not gun free zones in Texas. We can learn from them how illogical they are and do not solve any real problems, they just make them worse.


From a comment by magno et malo lupo3:

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 have yet to reach that point in my life but understand that it now takes longer to recover than it did when I was 30 or so!!!

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 and sometimes intentions 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.


When the politicians start spouting off that limiting or banning firearms will reduce crime, let’s remember:

• Murder is illegal.
• Attempting murder is illegal.
• A felon owning or possessing a firearm is illegal.
• Shooting people indecriminately is illegal.
• Using firearms in a criminal manner is illigal.
• Criminals do not go through background checks (universal or otherwise) to obtain firearms.

Therefore, explain how criminals will follow new laws. Explain how new laws will make the population safer. Explain how restricting law-abiding citizens rights to firearms even more will make us safer.

If the politician cannot fully explain the above, then their reasoning for passing new gun control laws is invalid and unconstitutional.


We can ban, regulate, or make illegal to own firearms and any other weapon, but evil will still find a way to create chaos and death. London, England is a perfect example – personal ownership of firearms is highly restricted, but crimes using knives and other weapons is at near epidemic levels. Around England, home invasions are on the rise as well, and the population has no effective means to defend themselves from personal harm.


“Gun Control isn’t about crime. It’s about disarmament of people who would oppose a tyrannical socialist government. The Socialists claims that it will prevent or stop crime are simply lies to get disarmament laws passed.” – unknown


Gun free zones do not create crime free zones – quite the opposite. Criminals know that their chance of being injured or killed by a citizen with a concealed firearm is greatly reduced, therefore increasing the crime rate in that area. The criminal will bring a weapon (including a firearm) to these areas to commit their crimes.

It’s also why greater than 97% of all mass murders occur in a gun-free zone – it’s a target-rich environment without anyone being able to fight back.

My opinion is that the politicians who came up with this idea are morally and criminally liable for each and every death and injury that has occurred in these gun free zones.

Yes, I’m talking about you, Joe Biden…


If Liberal Politicians treat us this poorly when we’re armed to the teeth, just imagine what they would be willing to do to us if they take away our guns?


I believe that the Democrat/Socialit’s end game is to disarm the public, leaving the remaining arms in the hands of the police and military. For what purpose can be summed up in this quote from Lenin:

“One man with a gun can control 100 without one.”

It’s not about safety or reducing crime – it’s about control.


Moving on…

If you remember the March for our Lives in 2018, it was promoted as a grass-roots response to gun violence in the United States, primarily concerning school shootings as illustrated by the Parkland murders. However, things aren’t quite what they seem…

As reported by The Washington Free Beacon (among others):

The March For Our Lives Action Fund, a 501(c)(4) “social welfare” organization launched in the aftermath of the deadly 2018 shootings at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, is bankrolled almost entirely by large donations in excess of $100,000. The group reported $17,879,150 in contributions and grants over the course of 2018, its first year of operations. Ninety-five percent of those contributions came from 36 donations between $100,000 and $3,504,717—a grand total of $16,922,331.

The group’s reliance on a small number of large donations raises questions about its ability to turn rally-goers and supporters into donors. It also provides ammunition to gun-rights activists who have long cast the gun-control movement as driven not by grassroots supporters, but by billionaire benefactors like Michael Bloomberg.

The group’s 990 tax form shows another 38 donations totaling between $5,000 and $100,000, which together accounted for an additional $876,114 of revenue. The remainder, just 0.5 percent of total receipts, came from those giving less than $5,000.

Not grass-roots, but another attack on the rights of law abiding Americans by a few power-hungry billionaires who have nothing better to do than to screw around with ordinary people.


And speaking of Michael Bloomberg…

Everytown for Gun Safety and Mom’s Demand Action are fully backed by Bloomberg minus what little funds they receive from their members. But that’s not all…

We have to remember that while he was Mayor of New York City, he placed a ban on the sale of soft-drinks (soda) over 16 ounces. Recently, he made a statement that higher taxes benefit the poor because they’ll live longer (the logic he states supporting this statement goes against human nature).

I’ve seen the “Bloomberg for President” ads. He has made a statement that he would gladly spend a BILLION DOLLARS to defeat Trump in the 2020 elections.

I can only think that this guy is on a power trip like no other, and there is no way in hell or heaven that he should be even be allowed to have any power. Nanny Bloomberg was used as a nickname during his stint as mayor, and it still fits – he wants to control YOU.


Switching gears…the clutch is worn so there is a little grinding going on… Millennials have no idea what a clutch is, so that just went over their heads…


The big stink about trans-kids competing in sports that do not match their biological gender is completely out of hand. It’s not fair that biological females who spend countless hours training for a sport are defeated by a biological male that identifies as female.

Here’s my take, and if you don’t like it, then tell me why…

The science is of genetics, male and female. Anyone who has attended a science biology class knows this (unless it’s one of the “progressive” schools, for which you have my sincerest condolences). XX (female) and XY (male) are the genetic markers for this distinction.

The qualifiers for sports or locker rooms should be genetic, not if the person “feels” that they are another sex. Biology trumps feelings. Period

Now for a side trip…

Feelings do not override the science of genetics, no matter what you think or say. And those politicians, administrators, and parents who do not understand this simple fact are, in fact, morons.

Yes, I understand that little Johnny thinks that he should be Jane, or Diane thinks she should be Don, and that you want to make everyone around them conform to your little angel’s whims. Grow the f*** up and be a parent. Get your child help – you’re the parent, not their friend.

The condition is called “Gender Dysphoria,” and was originally listed in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) as a disorder that needed to be corrected for the person’s continued mental health. This was later changed to be a condition that would need treatment to accept the condition (including surgical procedures) due to political pressure from the LGBT community.

So find help for your child. The statistics for suicide among transgender is far above the national average for normal people due to their unresolved feelings. So if you love your kid, be the parent & make the hard choice, even if it makes you unpopular with your kid.


While we’re sorta on the subject of health care – let this sink in…

Democrat/Socialists voted to mandate government approved health care to every citizen of the United States (exempting themselves, of course). Anyone who did not sign up would be fined.

Democrat/Socialists also voted to give health care to illegal aliens for free.

So who are they really concerned with? The citizens of this country who elected them, or everyone else?


Politics was never meant to be a career choice, but a service the ordinary person would temporarily perform for the good of the country. Consider this quote from Thomas Sowell:

“Most of the founders of this country had day jobs for years. They were not career politicians…We need leaders with experience in the real world, not experience in the phony world of politics.”

This is why Donald Trump has been so effective in the past 3 years than the politicians have in the past 30+ years. It’s also why the career politicians hate him – Trump has exposed their sham.


If Donald Trump had not won the 2016 election, we would not have had confirmation of our suspicions that the political elites were not only corrupt, but the depth of their corruption.

Just look at the Biden’s ties to corruption in Ukraine, & that sham of a charity called the Clinton Foundation, and that should be all the proof you need for the political elites getting rich off the backs of the American people.


To whit (a quote from an undocumented source)…

The DNC is a self perpetuating machine of sorts. They create hideous situations then march in boldly blaming all others for their own failures.

The only solution, they proclaim, is to join them as they are the only ones that can save the day, save everyone and make everything a dreamy utopia.

There are enough ignorant, plenty of uneducated and loads of stupid people to allow this perpetuation to continue, as history clearly shows.

People leave the DNC plantation only to be replaced by others, currently the invading hordes.


In closing, just remember that the actions of the Democrat/Socialists have done since the 2016 election have been to overturn the election, thereby negating the Constitution and the will of the people. That has been their priority, not the citizens of the United States.

That should be enough for you never to vote for the Democrat/Socialist party ever again.

Christmas Eve 2019

Hello Everyone. It’s time for the Christmas Eve post, and quite frankly, I’m really not in the mood for it. I’ll explain.

First is the personal stuff.

This past October, my Father’s Alzheimer’s progressed to the point of where he needed to be placed in assisted living. Being the only child, it fell upon me to take care of all the arrangements, move him, and close out his condo. I’m still not done with all the paperwork, and won’t be until sometime next year.

I’m not ashamed to say that I’m a bit mad at God for allowing such diseases to exist because they destroy not only the victim of the disease, but torture the loved ones with watching the victim slip away. I know God has a plan, but I just don’t see it with this disease.

Yeah, it’s real hard for me to get into the Christmas season this year…

Then there’s the political side of it.

The Founder’s expected our Representatives to be good, upstanding citizens with the unsavory element to be few and far between. Oaths of office were to keep them cognizant of their duties, responsibilities, and honor. Instead, we seem to have the Representatives owing allegiance to their political party and not to the people & country they swore to serve.

The House of Representatives voted along party lines for Articles of Impeachment against President Trump after two and a half years of the most sleaziest political witch-hunt in anyone’s memory. And then, the Articles (of which has yet to be sent to the Senate) do not list anything approaching the “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” standard set out in the Constitution. “Abuse of Power” is more of an opinion since no crime that is against the laws of the United States has been listed or proved, and “Contempt of Congress” is something that is totally made up. I’ll let the legal eagles debate all of the previous.

I personally think that the Democrats (now Socialists) should be impeached under their own standards for Abuse of Power because I believe that they have totally overstepped their authority in this and other matters. They definitely are guilty of the charge of “Contempt of the United States Constitution and Citizens Thereof.”

The bright spot in the political crap is that President Trump is fulfilling the majority of his promises. The economy is up, the unemployment is down, and everyone seems to be doing better, even his detractors. The Democrats (now Socialists) have nothing except restating the policies that Obama put into action during his Presidency, and drove the country into the tank.

While I wasn’t sure about voting for him in 2016, I certainly didn’t want Felonia Von Pantsuit in that office. I will be voting for him in 2020, and any Republican that is up for election in my district. I, like a number of other people, have had it with giving the Democrats (now Socialists) any chance at obtaining political power. The past two and a half years should show anyone with a functioning brain and a smidgen of common sense that the Democrats (now Socialists) are about getting power over you, the American Citizen, and taking every right away from you.

Yes, I’ve been notorious for not bringing uplifting messages on Christmas Eve. So let’s continue on with a final thought…

Perhaps we should remember that Christ was born into this world for the sole purpose of being that perfect sacrifice upon the cross for all of mankind’s sins – past, present, and future. Perhaps we should remember that when all others fail or turn their backs on us, or even when we are mad at Him, God will still be there to love us. Perhaps that is the real message of Christmas.

Merry Christmas, Everyone.

An Afternoon In September

Here I am with an afternoon on my hands, and what do I do? Write a blog post, of course!!

Topics come and go, but the really important ones persist. For instance…

One topic that will never die is climate change. This past week, a 16-year old Swedish girl spoke before the United Nations accusing them of stealing her childhood due to their inaction on climate change by making the climate change issue a political issue instead of addressing the Earth-ending, mass-extinction event crisis that she says it really is. The worst offenders, China and India, were never mentioned during the tirade, but other countries (including the United States) were. While I’m not surprised at any of this continuing circus, here are a few thoughts…

As far as I’m concerned, the whole thing is a giant publicity stunt designed to thrust the issue of climate change back into the world’s spotlight. Much was made about this girl sailing across the ocean in a racing sailboat, but not a whole lot was mentioned about the crew jetting back to Europe, and the racing sailboat being shipped back on a container ship. Moreover, if anyone is to blame for stealing this girl’s childhood, it’s the people brainwashing her into near states of hysteria with the assertion of the world coming to an end due to people living normal lives in our civilization.

By reading the above, you probably think that I’m a knuckle-dragging throwback to the caveman days a couple of decades past the primordial ooze. Not so, says I! Consider the following:

When I was growing up in Indiana in the 1960s, I watched a science related TV show concerning the coming Ice Age (global cooling). I was probably around 5 or 6 at the time. Later that day, I looked out the back door of the house, and saw it was snowing…and it was mid-July!! Needless to say, I lost it, crying and looking around fearfully for the glacier that I was sure that was coming to engulf the house like a tidal wave. It took my Mother several minutes to calm me down.

So when I see the Climate Warming Cooling Change crowd trot out their next crying child intent upon shaming the world into bending to their way of thinking, I think back to that day 50+ years ago of where they terrified a young child. They haven’t changed – they have no reservations on using children to force the issue emotionally because that’s all they have. They’ve faked their data, and cannot win any other way.

And by the way, flying on private jets to Climate Change conferences doesn’t look good either…

Continuing on…

Have you ever noticed that as soon as there is a shooting with multiple people hurt or injured that doesn’t include a gun-control paradise like Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, or Baltimore, the bodies haven’t even cooled before anti-rights legislation is introduced by a certain party? It doesn’t matter if the legislation, if enacted, wouldn’t have prevented the tragedy. It’s the push to use the emotions of the tragedy to “do something” and make it appear that a certain party “cares” about the safety of the people instead of trying to control them.

Yes, I’m referring to the Democratic Party, which is now rapidly becoming the Democratic Socialist Party. Their platform is falling right in line with the precepts of Socialism, of which the common citizen has no rights having given those rights to the government. Don’t believe me? Think about it – the Democratic Socialists are advocating on the debate stage and in press releases the following:

  • Confiscation of wealth (Bernie’s “no Billionaires” statement and Warren’s proposed confiscation of 401K accounts are just part of raising everyone’s taxes)
  • “Free” healthcare and education (paid for by the raised taxes, and provided by “approved” providers in both fields)
  • Confiscation of firearms (every socialist and communist country has done this with millions killed by their governments because the people could not fight back.)
  • Government approved speech, religion, and business practices (think of hate crime laws & policies forcing religious-based businesses to provide services that goes against their stated beliefs (i.e., Masterpiece Bakery), and you get the idea. There is a movement to deny banking credit, loans, and credit-card processing to the firearms industry.)
  • Suspension of rights due to perceived harm or future actions (extreme protection orders, or red-flag laws bypass due process protections, and could be expanded to include almost any action, statement, or complaint)
  • Create a single-party government like California by allowing open borders, unverified voting by illegal aliens, and ballot box fraud (voter harvesting). Single-party governments such as Soviet Russia and Communist China killed millions of their own citizens for “non-conformance” to the party line & policies, and political opponents “disappeared” or were shipped off to “re-education camps” (something that one Presidential candidate has suggested). Venezuela is only the latest example that I can think of.

Yes, I believe that the Democratic Party is becoming the Democratic Socialist Party, which in reality, is the Anti-Rights Party.

Last for this post is the continuing temper-tantrum of the Democrats to find something, anything, to remove Donald Trump from the Presidency. Trump has shown that the politicians in Washington are as inept as we suspected, and more corrupt than what we could have ever imagined.

First, it was Russia, now it’s Ukraine. I don’t anything will stick, and it will be a huge waste of time and tax-payer dollars.

Quite frankly, I think that the American People, by and large, are sick of the three-ring circus held by the clowns of the Democrats. I know I am.

We as citizens need to remember that these people work for us as Representatives, not as Royalty. It’s time that they are reminded of that.

I know that some of you reading this post do not like President Trump either for his actions, manners, or words. However, I believe that a non-politician like President Trump is the best chance we have for a government that will serve the people instead of the political elite. And yes, I admit that I held my nose when voting for him, but I realized that Hillary was infinitely worse. President Trump has worked out better than I had hoped.

So hold your nose, Vote Republican in the 2020 elections. I cannot vote for a party for which it’s candidates promote ideas and policies that undermine this country’s founding principles and citizens.

18 Years Later

Here it is, 18 years after the most horrific attack inflicted upon the United States that I can remember, and I wonder…

Does anyone else remember that day?  Or the day after when all the flags flew and Congress quit their bickering?

I do.  Still.

Eighteen years later, we are still at war with an ideology that wants to see the United States as we know it crushed.  And the useful idiots in our political “leadership” are allowing it to happen.

I keep re-posting the following that I wrote for the 5 year anniversary of 9/11, and put this out there again for a reminder of what happened, and perhaps, some self-reflection:

Sitting at my desk at another plant on assignment five years ago, I was finishing up some report when someone came in the office and announced that a plane had hit one of the World Trade Center buildings. I really didn’t think much of it at the time, and thought that some joy riding pilot in a Cessna got too close to one of the buildings, got caught in an updraft, and slammed into the building.

I finished up the report, and went out on the floor to check on the project’s progress, and I happened to see one of the TVs the company had set up for internal communications. Someone had put the feed from one of the national networks on the network, and I saw the WTC burning. I was stunned for two reasons – the first was that it was such a clear day, so how could someone accidentally hit one of the buildings. The second was that I just couldn’t understand how a small plane could cause so much damage. That’s when I saw the second plane hit…

Dumbfounded, I suddenly realized that the first plane was not a Cessna or other small plane, but a full-sized, passenger-carrying jet. I next understood that this was deliberate, because there was absolutely no way that two planes could hit the WTC buildings on the same clear day. Then there was the overwhelming sense of sadness, grief, hopelessness as the dawning of a new thought came to mind…

Terrorism, unlike anything that we have ever known, had come to America.

I watched, horrified along with the rest of the country, as the towers came down mere minutes from each other. I couldn’t understand that at the time – this was the last thing that I had expected. I had known that the Empire State Building had been struck by a B-25 bomber and had survived with minimal damage – why not a modern building? But that was not the case here – too big, too much fuel, too much heat – and the towers collapsed. And I wept openly as I watched the plumes of dust rise over the island of Manhattan.

Later, the news of the Pentagon being hit and the plane going down in Pennsylvania came across the news, but everyone was in shock. Who could have done this, and why? Questions abounded, and answers were few in coming. Wild speculation and rumors ran through the plant unchecked. And everyone was afraid…

Where was the next attack going to happen, and when? Everyone struggled to make sense of the madhouse that the country had become. Nothing was the same, nor would it ever be again. And the skies went silent except for the roar of fighter jets on patrol.

I feared for the future of the country, and of that of my son’s. What kind of a world was he going to grow up in? How much different was his childhood and adult life going to be than mine? The future had suddenly become so very uncertain and frightening for all of us.

The American people are now at war, not with a nation, but with an ideology that hates this country and all of it’s citizens. These people live, think, sleep, and eat with the thought of killing us and destroying this country that we live in simply because they do not like us for the freedoms we enjoy (especially the one about freedom to worship). And their reward for doing so is their version of heaven. And knowing all of this, there are those who still believe that these fanatics can be negotiated with.

In the past five years, we observed the political parties pull together like most of us had never known before, only to watch political sniping and power plays take the place of securing this country from foreign terrorists once & for all. The planes are flying again, but at great inconvenience to all. Terrorist attacks have taken place and were prevented around the world, but we all know it’s a matter of time before another attack happens here.

What does the future hold? That is unknown to all except the Creator. But I am hopeful, both in this country and my fellow Americans. We have proven in the past that we are a resilient people, able to rise and meet any challenge before us. I can only pray that this will be the case as our new enemy is as patient, cunning, and vicious as any beast of the field. And we must remember that as we observe this most solemn day.

 

More Evil

My apologies for not posting – life has been busy, and this weekend is no exception. This post will be short – maybe…

We’ve have had not one, but two mass-murders this weekend – one in Texas, the other in Ohio. Details are still coming in, but I can almost predict the following:

  • The Democrat Candidates, aka The Clown Posse, will all call for more gun control because “we must do something” even though their “something” will only impose restrictions on the law-abiding gun owner & not anyone bent on evil.
  • The murders will have occurred in so-called “gun-free zones,” which obviously do not work as the murderers had guns. They should be renamed “defenseless zones.”
  • The murderers have thoughts of grandeur – wanting their names in the news even though they may not be around to see it…their gory way of becoming famous. They could also be mentally unstable.
  • There are early rumblings in the media of tying these shootings to the hate-filled rhetoric of the President. (How the President is somehow responsible for this is beyond me.)

I have given a bit of thought as to why it seems that we are seeing an increase in these types of events, and while these thoughts have been put forth by others, seem to be true.

As mentioned above, many of the murderers have mental health issues, some diagnosed, others not. Our society, with its focus on instant gratification through social media, certainly doesn’t help. Twitter is a garbage dump – foul language and hateful comments by people famous and those not even on the radar all clamor for that recognition that these people crave that they otherwise do not receive in real life. Technology has exasperated the problem, not resolved it.

Our media takes the mantra “if it bleeds, it leads” to a new low. The rush of the media in their desire to be first in the 24-hour news cycle reports everything possible, presenting misinformation as fact just to be first. And they gleefully report the murderers name non-stop with their backgrounds, beliefs, manifestos, and body count with the fervor of fans at a concert. No wonder people who are unstable consider mass-murder as a route to infamous immortality.

And all the while, the casualty count of one of these mass-murders is a bad weekend on Chicago’s South side. But let’s not go there because of politics and agendas…as in the politicians ignoring the murder rates in Democrat controlled cities, and a complicit media lying by omission the real problems surrounding gun-related murders.

Rather than dealing with criminal behavior and the mental health aspect of the problem, the politicians want to demonize a piece of metal and plastic. This provides the politicians in these areas deniability while promising to “do something about this epidemic” during multiple campaign seasons. Somehow, it never gets done other than trying to restrict the legal ownership of weapons. Nothing is done about crime or mental health, no matter what the politicians promise.

Politicians also have no problems, especially with firearms, with passing laws to restrict anything that can be used by a private citizen to defend themselves. After all that’s the job of the police – if they get to the scene of the crime, if at all… Politicians want the power over the people, which has been the function of governments throughout history.

As far as the media is concerned, why would they want to help solve a source of news? After all, mass-murders provide coverage for days if not weeks of misinformation to the masses as well as the all important ratings points…

Yes, I’m a cynical bastard, and I can go down this road a long way… To whit…

I guarantee if the weapon(s) used in these murders was the problem, there would be 100,000+ murders a day as there are over 100,000,000 million weapons in the hands of private American citizens. There wouldn’t be anyone left in the country in a few weeks.

To restate an earlier comment, I have no idea how the President of the United States could be responsible for instigating mass-murder. The most hate-filled rhetoric has been coming from various members of the Democrat Party, and has been ever since President Trump was elected. If anything, the Democrats should be looking in a mirror to look for the source of the problem. But then again, they need to see a reflection first…

Most of the mass-murders have been leaning toward or are Democrats or Democratic-Socialists if they had any political leanings. (look at the Bernie-supporting gunman that shot up a Republican baseball team, for example) That should tell you how unhinged that party is becoming, and how unstable some of their followers are. Thus far, I haven’t heard of any Conservative or Conservative-leaning mass-murderers.

The reason the Democrat politicians want to ban AR15s is because the full-auto variant (the M16 and M4) is over 50 years old, and hundred’s of thousands of veterans know how to use this firearms platform. Should the Democrats ever succeed in achieving absolute power, many of the patriotic veterans, who swore to uphold the Constitution, could take up arms with a firearm that they are intimately familiar with. This presents a clear threat to that desire for power.

Last, with the politicians stating that it’s the police’s job to protect citizens is an absolute lie. Police are under no legal obligation to protect a private citizen, and that has been upheld in the courts. In other words, the police arrive after the crime with the intention of gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and outlining the body before carting it away to the morgue. The only first responder at the scene of the crime is going to be the (potential) victim, and if they live or no depends on how they can defend themselves. The politician does not care about you except for your vote, and only if it’s for them.

That’s all for now. We’ll see what the aftermath is from this goes.
