An Evening Visit

H/T: What McAuliffe Said

It may be that I'm getting sentimental in my "old" age. Sloppy. Maybe the mind is going. The bod' is long gone. Some say it never was! :>) What you see is not what hinders me.

When I read Mike's "An Evening Visit" I felt cold. Inside.

I've never been a physically active individual. Oh, I've hunted, traveled, hiked a bit, worked on cars a bit and so on. Back when I was a kid. You know, before I was 40. Nowadays a sword, a physical, hand-to-hand weapon, is very unattractive for me to use. There are better tools to be had. So far.

Perhaps the time for the physical sword of the "Visit" is not yet upon us. Maybe we are still in the time of the sword of words and non-violent resistance and politics and opinion. Maybe.

I believe we are still in that time. I hope we are. I hope we can stay there for a long time. Not for my sake. For the sake of my children and their children.

Will you take up the sword as well?

Having said all that, maybe we are near the time of the real thing. With the Democrats seemingly in complete control of this nation, I can not call it a republic much longer, we are threatened with the complete loss of our freedom.

In such times, it is hard for me to remember that we are sustained not by might, not by power, but by the Word of the Lord.

Who will stand with Him? For our children's sake.

God Bless Ya'll !

"The Brady Bill's only effect . . . "

H/T: Keep And Bear Arms

At the bottom of KABA's main pages there is a space for a "random" set of freedom, libery and gun-related quotes to appear. Every time you visit the site, or refresh your screen, a new quote will be presented.

Here's one that I believe has come back to haunt us:

"The Brady Bill's only effect will be to desensitize the public to regulation of weapons in preparation for their ultimate confiscation." — Charles Krauthammer, The Washington Post, April 5, 1996

That is about all it has done.

We have been warned.

God Bless Ya'll !

It's Official!

H/T: Xavier

The Obama-in-Chief has spoken. All Hail the Obama-messiah!

His "official" agenda is published at http://www.whitehouse.gov/agenda/urban_policy/.

Under Crime and Law Enforcement we find:

End the Dangerous Cycle of Youth Violence:
Obama and Biden support innovative local programs, like the CeaseFire program in Chicago, which implement a community-based strategy to prevent youth violence and have been proven effective.

According to http://www.ceasefirechicago.org/: "CeaseFire is one of the only proven techniques for making neighborhoods safer."

"Proven effective" - And you know this from what evidence?

One has to ask: "Does de-clawing an irascible cat change it's irascible nature? Well?" Violence is the problem. Preventing effective self-defense against violence does not solve the problem! Work the problem! - Gene

Address Gun Violence in Cities:
Obama and Biden would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. [Lies and damned lies. Tiahrt only prevents mayors and other non-law enforcement personnel from accessing gun trace information. In fact, it keeps them from screwing up on-going criminal investigations. - Gene] Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals. ["Commonsense" - Socialist-speak for infringing upon life, liberty and . . . - Gene] They support closing the gun show loophole [NON-EXISTENT! - Gene]and making guns in this country childproof. [Keep'em away from kids & incompetents and they're perfectly safe! We've had 4-500 years to work on that problem. - Gene] They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent. [What gives whith these guys?! The AWB didn't work the first time around. They had ten years of failure and now they want to try again? Anyway, it didn't really ban any "assault weapons." It only defined certain types of features as "ee-evil."

"Stupid is as stupid does" - Forrest Gump

- Gene]

(Emphasis added - Gene)

If you really want a tongue lashing, initiate this conversation within the hearing of my SWMBO! You'd better run, or duck or just not bother! ;>)

A whole new class of "criminal" is about to be created.

BOHICA

If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government — and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws." - Edward Abbey

~~~

"In our inner cities, where firearms are outlawed, only outlaws are armed. When our "philosopher kings" sit back and do nothing, this is the tyranny and terror of "gun control." - Charlton Heston

Eye's off the ball, continued - The Robinson Saga

H/T: Cotton Country Anglican

Joe Roberts at CCA has his eye on the ball. I'm not too sure about VGR . Like our new president, the Obama-messiah, he says one thing but his toes point elsewhere.

I also wish that this self-styled "simple country bishop" would spend more time tending to his own flock and less time out on the stump for his secular political agenda. I could say more, but choose not to do so. It is time to turn my eye's back toward the ball.

Inaugural homily for 2009

H/T: WorldNetDaily

This is rich! Unfortunately I didn't think of it first.

The government is my shepherd: I need not work. It allows me to lie down on good jobs; it leadeth me beside still factories. It destroyeth my initiative. It leadeth me down the path of parasites for politics' sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of laziness and deficit spending, I shall fear no evil, for the nanny state is with me. Its bailouts and vote-falsifiers, they comfort me. It prepareth an economic utopia for me by appropriating the earnings of my grandchildren. It filleth my head with bologna; my inefficiency runneth over. Surely the nanny state shall care for me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in a fool's paradise forever.

The Money Quote

H/T: WorldNetDaily

BHO wants to give is "change." As near as I can tell, he wants to "give it to us" whether we want it, need it, can use it, or will receive it or not. Nice guy.

I believe Ayn Rand wrote it best:

"The brutes, private or public, who believe that they can rule their betters by force, will learn the lesson of what happens when brute force encounters mind and force.”
Atlas Shrugged

Robert Serio, quoted below, might be part of the solution " . . . when brute force encounters mind and force."

Robert Serio, chairman of the local Democratic Party for 30 years, says Obama was viewed as too liberal in Monroe County. "We don't look at national Democrats as being family-oriented," says Serio, a lawyer. "The multicultural thing would be something we are opposed to. The homosexual question would have an impact." (Link included in the original text - Gene)

Mr. Serio may, or may not, have the intestinal fortitude to be effective when it comes time to resist BHO's "change." Heck, I may, or may not, have the necessary fortitude to be effective. I certainly hope and pray the resistance can be peaceful. I am not encouraged.

Someone must be effective or we go the way of Zimbabwe.

God Bless Ya'll !

File This Away Under "Scary Thoughts"

H/T: WorldNetDaily

Hail King Obama: President for life
Move underway to repeal Constitution's term limits

The headline tells us more than we want it to say.
The U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary is considering a bill that would repeal the Constitution's 22nd Amendment prohibiting a president from being elected to more than two terms in office.

Rep. Jose Serrano, D-N.Y. needs his head examined. Oh, wait! Never mind! He's a Democrat. That explains everything! His being a so-called Democrat is not the real issue. It's the fact that most Democrat politicians got to their elite post by being the liberal, left-wing, socialist/Marxist/Leninist thugs that give politics a dirty name. Never mind that corruption thang all too many of them have going.

Here's what else a "President for Life" can bring:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/7832601.stm
and this, too:
http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=86348

Cholera outbreaks are common in developing countries, but the waterborne disease does not usually kill more than about 1 percent of people infected. In Zimbabwe, the World Health Organization estimated that the fatality rate was about 5 percent. (Emphasis added - Gene)

In case you haven't heard, Zimbabwe's rulers started out blaming their Golden Goose (the farmers who created the nation's wealth [and happened to be white]) for the so-called "ills" Mugabe identified. Then he stole their lands, ran them out of the country, ruined their livelyhoods, and familiesm. Then he turned over their property, as spoils, to his "followers". They didn't have a clue, or an interest, in farming or doing anything with their "gift" so Zimbabwe now has roughly 230,000% annual inflation with 80% un-employment.

Can we not read the writing on this wall?

God Bless Ya'll !

It's Not Like They Didn't Warn Us

H/T: The Liberty Sphere

It's not like they didn't warn us! "We" the sheeple are just that: Sheep for the slaughter.

In spite of the fact that the American electorate was warned repeatedly about Barack Obama's woeful lack of experience and qualification for the office of President, the citizens turned a deaf ear and proceeded to vote for him anyway.

Americans didn't seem to care that . . .

And they didn't care that Obama's connection to . . .

And they turned a blind eye to Obama's bid for the . . .

Congress' plan would let AG 'ban guns at will'

H/T: WorldNetDaily



BHO has designated one Eric Holder to be his Attorney-General for US, his supposed sheeple. Well, Holder is no shepherd. Holder must be opposed by the 60-80 million LEGAL gun owners in the country. To do otherwise is to doom us to going further down the road to the Brady Paradise of England or Canada or Australia where the criminals have more weapons than their intended victims. Oh, BTW, the Brit, Canuck and Aussie police have no more responsibility to protect your hind-end than do our cops.

Our cops are, for the most part, superb at their jobs:

  • Patrol
  • Reporting
  • Investigation
  • Apprehension
    "A former Ohio secretary of state, (Ken) Blackwell notes that, 'despite Obama's new lip service to the Second Amendment, Holder signed onto a brief earlier this year (2008) reaffirming his long-held position that the Second Amendment confers no rights whatsoever to private citizens, and that the Supreme Court should have upheld D.C.'s absolute ban on handguns, even in homes."

Evidently, Mr. Holder, and his would-be boss, BHO, can not read plain English. Neither can they learn from their betters, the writers of our Constitution and original interpreters of such.

These are the people "we" chose to lead us for the next four years. God have mercy on us all.

"Just War"? - A Study On Christian Pacifism by Gabe Suarez

H/T: Front Sight, Press

Gabe Suarez is a Christian, a warrior and trainer of warriors. He often reminds us of Psalm 144:1: Blessed be the Lord my rock who trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.

Suarez has this to say about Pacifism:

True Pacifism (peace at any price) and Seeking Peace (but not at any price) are separated by a wide gulf.

~~~

A pacifist is a person who refuses to act in violence in any way, for any reason, or at any time. Such a person will die, and watch others die, before ever resorting to violent means to save himself or others. In contrast, one can love peace and seek it, but not at any price. A man can desire peace with a gun in his hand.

Watch say?

God Bless Ya'll !

"The Republic will always have need for heroes."

H/T: Sipsey Street Irregulars

Robert Heinlein, one of my all-time favorite authors, not just in the science fiction genre, seemed to have some bad habits of speech. You see, he was not PC very often. In fact, from what I've read, he was pretty straight forward about good news, bad news and what he thought of a situation.

Heinlein told the midshipmen what he believed they needed to hear.

Mr. Heinlein didn't tell them what they wanted to hear. That's the function, some would it is the job, of the politician. Heinlein told them what they needed to hear. There's a big difference there for those so inclined.

Read Mike's article and see tell me what you think.

'Defiance' -- "Without a rifle, you are nothing"

H/T: Western Rifle Shooters Assoc. & Sipsey Street Irregulars

Interesting thoughts for those of us interested in the subject:

Defiance though is one of the few Holocaust movies, that is actually a war movie. It is not about finding meaning, as much as it is about the hard realities of survival, and what must be done to survive.

~~~

There is no moral to be learned, except that if you want to live and want others to live, you must be prepared to do what it takes.

Forwarded (many times) from a personal friend of ours:

Hmmm...nice little news note about those wondrous Hamas folks. Got it off Yahoo News: "Both Iran and its Hamas proxy in Gaza have been busy this Christmas week showing Christendom just what they think of it. But no one seems to have noticed.

On Tuesday, Hamas legislators marked the Christmas season by passing a Shariʼa criminal code for the Palestinian Authority. Among other things, it legalizes crucifixion.

Hamasʼs endorsement of nailing enemies of Islam to crosses came at the same time it renewed its jihad.

"Nice. Real nice religion of peace, you got there. And these jokers expect us to feel bad when Israel bombs them back to the Stone Age?
