I own a gun – it never killed anyone.

I owned an AR-15. It never killed anyone.
I still own a Glock .40 cal. It never killed anyone either.

Blaming the gun is stupid.

You could blame the hand that holds the gun. But that would be wrong.
You could blame the hand that pulls the trigger. But that would be wrong too.
I did both at my local shooting range. Even with my gun, I never killed anyone.

You can only blame the hand that points the gun at another person and pulls the trigger.

THAT would be the hand to blame………but never just the gun.

Why I own a gun

I’ve had this as a draft for awhile, never published it.  Don’t know why….

So here goes:

I recently found this posted in the comment section of some obscure “Gun” issue covered by local news. It is BRILLIANT!!

Here it is….. I wish I could take the credit for this one:

Why I own a Gun

I don’t own a gun to kill people.
I own a gun to keep from being killed.

I don’t carry a gun to scare people.
I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.

I don’t own a gun because I’m paranoid.
I own a gun because there are real threats in the world..

I don’t own a gun because I’m evil.
I own a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.

I don’t own a gun because I hate the government.
I own a gun because I understand the limitations 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 because I’m a cowboy.
I carry a gun because, when I die and go to heaven, I might want to be a cowboy.

I don’t own a gun to make me feel like a man.
I own a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate.
I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don’t carry a gun because I love it.
I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

Police protection is an oxymoron.

Free citizens must protect themselves.

Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just arrive in time to investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

Personally, I carry a gun because I’m too young to die and too old to take an ass kicking…..

Public Bathroom Wars

I haven’t written on my blog for a long time now, just lazy, I guess – it is what it is…BUT…. I’m BAAAAACK!

…And now for the news!

As hard as it is to believe that we have come to this, but some State-level Government Moron, has successfully written into law, that you MUST use the Public Bathroom that corresponds to the sex on your Birth Certificate.  I’ll just call it:

 

THE PUBLIC BATHROOM GENDER LAW

Now, I’m sure that somebody’s going to have an actual answer for this, and I’m already holding back the laughter……

I’m still waiting to see who’s hiring people to be “Bathroom Gender Checkers“.  And how do they intend to enforce this “Law”..?

Are they gonna hand out Public Bathroom Stall Door Keys?

And even worse….Who would apply for such a job…??  Will they be called PBBS? (Public Bathroom Brown Shirts)  Younger readers may not get that.  (Young Nazi’s wore Brown Shirts)

Drop those drawers, Missy, and gimmie a look!….and while you’re at it, lemmie see your Original Birth Certificate!”  ….Because, as we all know, everyone carries their own Original Birth Certificate everywhere we go, especially to Public Bathrooms, where we know we will need it.

We used to arrest people who peeped through tiny holes between stalls…. Now, we’ll just wrench the door open and demand to see crotches?? And how are they going to choose which Public Bathroom Stall to investigate?? Lay on the floor, and check who’s feet look guilty?

I’m old now, 66, male, and ex-Military, and I sit down to pee.  It hurts my back to stand up for long periods.  Won’t they be surprised to open the door to check why I’m sitting down, and look down the barrel of my .40 cal Glock!!  It’ll be the last thing they see,

Cause you can bet your ass that I’m gonna shoot the first person who opens MY door.!!

Well, that’s my take on the news!

Not one single White riot…Why is that??

This is a reprint from the comment section of a news article that talks about Al Sharpton, and Jessie Jackson being the CAUSE of “discontent” within the black community.  I have to agree.

Look it up.  I did.  

ANOTHER reason NOT to trust our Government

Sorry all – been awhile, been traveling, and not much time to blog.  FOR THIS, however, I just HAD to make an exception:

Why do MOST Americans NOT trust our Government??  Hmmmm?  Well take a look at THIS:

The American government claimed that it can take your pictures and pretend to be you on social networks in attempt to trick your friends into admitting that they have committed illegal deeds. According to the Justice Department, a federal agent legitimately impersonated a young woman on the Internet by creating a Facebook page in her name without her knowledge. This was done by stealing photos from the woman’s seized mobile phone and sticking racy pictures of her and her son and niece to a fake social media account.

The woman in question, Sondra Arquiett (who then went by the name Sondra Prince) discovered that the agents had stolen her ID four years ago, when a friend asked her about the photos she was allegedly posting on her Facebook timeline. There were risqué pictures of the woman posing on the hood of a BMW with her legs spread, and photos of her in underwear.

(To which I have to ask: Why would you EVER pose for pictures like that, knowing that posting them ANYWHERE would be embarrassing. Just how stupid ARE you??)

It turned out that the account was created by special agent of the US Drug Enforcement Administration named Timothy Sinnigen. He had arrested Arquiett and accused her of participating in a drug ring. Later, the judge decided that the single mom was a bit player who took responsibility and sentenced her to probation. When Sondra was awaiting trial, the agent created the fake Facebook page with her real name, published pictures from her seized mobile, and had connected with at least one wanted fugitive. Of course, everything was done without Arquiett’s knowledge.

In the meantime, Facebook’s Community Standards clearly read that pretending to be someone else, creating a false presence for a company, or creating multiple accounts undermines community and violates the website’s terms. Nothing is said about any exceptions for police and spooks. Nevertheless, the fake Facebook page is still there.

Apparently, the actions of the US Drug Enforcement Administration might have never been discovered if Arquiett, now 28, hadn’t sued the agent, accusing him of violating her privacy and placing her in danger. The response of the authorities was the following: the agent admitted that Sondra didn’t give express permission for the use of pictures stored on her phone on the fake Facebook page. At the same time, the DEA claimed that Arquiett implicitly consented by granting access to data stored in her mobile and by consenting to use it in order to help an ongoing criminal investigations.

This means that the American authorities can just walk into your house, steal your pictures and publish them on the Internet if they have a reason to believe that it can help arrest your friends. Of course, when the woman gave permission for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to look at her phone, she could never imagine that she would have consented to her pictures being used in like that. Unfortunately, the US Justice Department believes that this kind of behavior is just fine.

And it’s Legal!!  TAKE DOWN THAT STUPID FACEBOOK PAGE – ZUKERMANN HAS ENOUGH MONEY. HE DOESN’T GIVE A RAT’S ASS IF YOU TAKE THE FALL FOR SOMETHING YOU DIDN’T DO – AND HE IS HELPING THE GOVERNMENT DO IT!!  

I need coffee.

Been absent (- but I have a good excuse)

First, I’d like to say “Thanks” to those of you who have elected to “follow” my posts.   So…. Thanks.

 

I just HAVE to talk a bit about ISIS, and that whole situation.  I have read that the Iraqi Air Force has recently joined the fighting alongside US Fighter Jets.

I hope they can work out a good plan, so they don’t run in to each other….

New technology allows Iraq's new air force to join the fight against ISIS.

New technology allows Iraq’s new air force to join the fight against ISIS.

Sorry, couldn’t resist!!  (Please feel free to circulate the picture and caption….give me credit if you would, please.  Thanks)

I also hear alot about the President directing airstrikes in Iraq and Syria.  I really used to like Obama, but recently, I seem to have come to my senses, and I wonder, how in the heck is he going to get out of this one?  Seems like no matter what he decides to do, he’s gonna be way wrong.  Well, (and I’d say this to any President..)  ‘Good luck, hope you make good choices!’

I think I’ll use today’s writing to catch up on a couple of issues that I’ve been watching.  Been savin’ ’em up…..

One of my biggest bitches is how the US is so buddy-buddy with Israel. They’ve been caught spying on the US for DECADES!!  They stole the secrets to the Atomic Bomb when it was still being worked on here in the US., they’ve been caught red-handed with their paws in the Cookie Jar.

I had the fortune to be able to travel earlier in my life, and was able to spend several years living and working in China.

(This was around the time when President Yasser Arafat was trying desperately to find some kind of common ground with Israel, as they were mowing down Palestinian homes with Bulldozers, and building Luxury Condos for Israeli’s right in the same place!!  Now, it occurs to me, that if someone came to MY house with a Bulldozer, and said,

“If you don’t get out, you’ll be crushed.  Because we’re going to do this whether you like it or not!”
Well, I’d grab my hunting rifle, and tell them to back off, or I’ll shoot.  I think anyone in that situation would react accordingly.  Well, here’s the rub… If you don’t get out of the way, an Israeli Sniper will end your life, your family will be forcibly removed, and they will continue with what they were doing, before you so rudely interrupted their day.

I bring up China because during one of my visits there, I was fortunate enough to get a job at China Central Television.

(I was hired for my voice, as I speak “American Broadcast English”, which means I have no accent from any specific region in the US, and anyone in any country where English is used, can understand what I say.     Handy.)

ANYWAY… I worked in the International NEWS Department, and was able to monitor raw news feeds from around the world.  We could watch Reuters, CNN, AP, BBC, Al-Jazzra, all as it happened…no editing, just the raw – unedited footage.

To my horror, I watched Israeli Snipers, taking ‘head shots’ on little kids who were 3 and 4 blocks away, throwing rocks at their heavily fortified checkpoint.  They would pat each other on the back, and cheer when a child had been killed.  They would wait to see if a friend or parent would rush onto the street to try to rescue the injured or killed.  That would be a “secondary” target. 

And then: 

ISRAEL SENDS GROUND TROOPS INTO GAZA

“Palestinian officials said Israeli troops had killed over 2000 people in Gaza, most of them civilians.” MOST OF THEM, CIVILIANS.

MOST OF THEM CIVILIANS!?!?  Are you kidding me??

If this were anywhere else in the world, there would be sanctions, calls for action, diplomatic emergency meetings…..
but in THIS case, there’s NOTHING!!!     

WHY, MR PRESIDENT??
It seems it’s OK for Israel to just murder anyone they come across and NO ONE complains.

WHY, MR PRESIDENT?…

The Palestinian people have no military to protect them, they have no oil, they have NOTHING – And the US CONTINUES TO GIVE 3 BILLION Dollars a year to ISRAEL?????

WHY, MR PRESIDENT??
The time has come for Israel to take care of themselves…they don’t NEED 3 Billion a year…. the PALESTINIANS DO….

Why, Mr President????

Are the Palestinian people really that disposable?   Guess so.  The UN sits on its collective ass and writes letters to Israel, saying, Hey!  Stop that.  If you don’t stop that, we’ll write you another letter saying stop that!

Anyway,  No one ever got to see that footage.  It was determined to be “upsetting” to the viewing audience. Thus, NOT on the 6 O’Clock News.  Nor any other news for that matter.  Just another day in the International News Department of CCTV.  China wasn’t the only country censoring these kind of events.  The U. S.  State Department had made it clear to the International Community that Israel is a “friend and ally” of the United States, and such ‘stories’ would be treated as “undermining” the relationship with the United States, of whoever aired that footage.  Yeah, we’re always the good guy.  (?)

 

I’m gonna get dinner….  think I’ll write some more tomorrow…. there’s Immigration, Ferguson Missouri..Gas Prices,   oh yeah!!  Lots more……   see ya.

GOP vs. Hillary Clinton

In a recent news piece, entitled: “Pre-book tour, GOP tries to define Hillary Clinton”, wherein, the GOP is building an anti-Clinton infrastructure that aims to undercut her appeal more than two years ahead of the presidential election.”

“Ultimately our goal is to stop Hillary Clinton,” said Garrett Marquis of the Stop Hillary PAC, which formed last year and has raised $500,000 and says it has 250,000 enlisted supporters. 

Many Democrats say Republicans attack Clinton almost nonstop because they see her as the strongest possible presidential opponent by far, and that it conveniently fires up conservative voters who are crucial in the fall elections. 

“Republicans are singularly focused on turning out their base,” said Mo Elleithee, a spokesman for the Democratic National Committee.”

Singularly focused??, (I asked myself with a sigh), clearly, they are putting all their resources on doing something NEGATIVE – AGAIN… instead of trying do accomplish something POSITIVE, such as, perhaps, finding someone within the GOP, who just might be a good candidate.

“Steve Schmidt, a veteran strategist on GOP presidential campaigns said, “The degree to which Hillary Clinton is positioned in front and center, and not the president, I think it hurts Republicans at the end of the day,” 

Maybe the GOP is just too stupid to understand what all that means…..Just sayin’…

I wrote (in a comment section of Yahoo) the following…as an open letter to Republicans in general, noting that I will most likely get a negative response from the (well known) “Party of ‘NO'”.

USMC 8541

How about, Republicans, you put your efforts into finding a candidate within YOUR ranks that will be the BEST candidate for President of the United States, and the candidate who will be the BEST PERSON FOR THE JOB…. and one who will remember that this nation is built of PEOPLE. How about, GOP, you work to find a candidate who will be the Best Person to lead our nation, and to BE IN TOUCH WITH THE PEOPLE?? (Which, notably, most of you are not).
Instead of trying to “Stop” a candidate, how about you START one?????

I realize, that the GOP is driven, perhaps compelled by some cosmic unknown forces, to remain nay-Sayers to the last, but wouldn’t it be refreshing if they did something FOR THE PEOPLE, instead of FOR THEMSELVES??

So watcha think, GOP??  Ready to try something different, for a change??
