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.
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.
