Fifty-Fifty Split

The more I read arguments by various factions within our country the more convinced I am that Americans have lost the ability to compromise. This morning I opted to read the Freedom Fighter published by the NRA. Of course the opinion pieces all targeted why we should continue to own guns. My stance on that is they are right. I have owned a gun since age fourteen when my older brother, then in the army, gifted me with a Winchester .22 caliber rifle.

I had a lot of fun with that rifle, as did my family. Whenever we had a family gathering at my parent’s farm we used the rifle in a competition. It was all in fun, and my brother, brother-in-law, and I taught our kids the rules of gun safety. I am a firm believer in gun ownership, and the Second Amendment. I don’t think my pea shooter will go far against an army destined to put me down when I rebel against a tyrannical government, but I will die fighting for my rights.

Reading the arguments for and against gun ownership caused me to think of the splits in out country. All of us has something we believe in and we are all right. None of us believes the other guy is correct. None of us believes the other guy will compromise on any of our rights. The rights of people who believe in guns is as strong as the right of the person who believes no one should own a gun. There are other divides among us, like the current head to head clash between Christians and Muslims. Both groups believe there is but one God, but both believe their God is the right one, even though God is the same Being. Both groups believe their belief is the only one. Another major split is in our beliefs of government systems. Liberals want to be controlled by government while Conservatives believe in very limited government, and the arguments go one, but there is no compromise. The worst split is between those who believe in the rule of law and those who believe they should ignore any law that they think is stupid, like borders, and illegal immigration.

I truly believe that these people are all right. Not all of us are bad, but our belief systems collide. What then, is the answer?

The US Constitution is the controlling doctrine. It is the one compelling set of truths that has the power to neutralize all the dividing factions among us. Except of course those who don’t think the Constitution has any meaning. The result is that we will be fighting against each other endlessly. Hopefully, the country will hold together while we sort things out.

When President Obama took office in 2008, and all the liberal liberals appeared from nowhere I predicted the country would end the argument in civil war. We are having that civil war now. We are not shooting yet, but the arguments to take our guns away are a way to neutralize our ability to win the war.

 

What a Revoltin’ Development This Is

Those of you who know me know that I am a very conservative guy. I believe in paying only those taxes that are lawfully mine to pay. I own firearms and am a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. I support legal immigration only. It isn’t that hard to get in folks; play by the rules. I believe DACA is a ploy to weasel more illegals into the country. I hate socialism with a vengeance. Socialists are just communists in sheep’s clothing. I want the wall, and promoted Obama’s shovel ready stimulus of eight hundred billion dollars. It could have paid for walls on the North and South borders in a heart beat, with money left over to rebuild every bridge in America, and people would have gone to work. I believe in personal responsibility, and paying my way. That is how my democrat parents raised me. My parents were democrats because that is what my Dad’s bosses told him he was, and Dad told Mom. The Democrats are for the working man they told him. My parents lived their lives as conservatives. They had to, they came to this country legally through Ellis Island, had sponsors and jobs lined up. Then the Great Depression hit, and had to live on a shoe string. They abhorred “charity” from the government. Toward the end of her life my siblings and I learned that Mom may have been in the country illegally, but that is another story and a good one too. What I am trying to say is that I believe strongly in immigration. My only problem is with “illegal” immigration.

Eventually, I will get to the main point of this essay, bear with me.

Yesterday, my house cleaning crew came. House cleaning is one of those jobs that I refuse to do, so I delegate it to someone else, but they don’t work for free. The crew is a mother and daughter from Mexico. For the past three years that they have worked for me I have always wondered if they were here legally. It has been twenty years since they arrived, I thought at worst they may have been part of an amnesty. I still don’t know. I love to tease the daughter about her work habits, and often ask her why she doesn’t further her education. She never gives me a good answer. She was three when her parents brought her to America. She speaks excellent english without a hint of an accent, but she rattles off Spanish to her mother who still doesn’t speak English well. The Señorita has a good grasp of our government and the Constitution.

These women do excellent work, and Senora’s husband works for a remodeling contractor. Señor has also worked for me painting and dry walling. All of them work like the Energizer Bunny, they just keep on going. The entire family is religious and close-knit with many friends and relatives.

Daughter told me she is going to get a job in 2019. I asked her why when she is self-employed? “Well if I don’t get a job, I will lose my DACA and get put a deportation list.” WHAT? Why are you a part of DACA?”

“My mother thought it would be the best way for me to get a Social Security number.”

The wheels began spinning in my head. Obama invented DACA to allow unaccompanied minors into the country. This young lady has been here for twenty years she is twenty-three now. She wasn’t a minor, nor was she unaccompanied when she arrived. Given that DACA is six years old she would have been sixteen at the time and probably could have passed for younger.

All this is making my head explode. I feel for this girl. At three years old she didn’t come here by herself, her parents dragged her. Being an obedient child she obeys her parents. She is a victim of our government, and a Congress to unable to straighten out the mess, but she is also a victim of her parents. They are living the better life they came here to live; a house, cars, smart phones, and all the amenities of an American family.

What really scares me is how many more kids have signed up for DACA. I don’t think the law intended to include kids who have been here for thirteen years. No wonder the politicians call it a broken system. They have rewritten the immigration law in little dribs and drabs to the point where it is undecipherable and impossible to enforce. Combine that with an open border and the flood gates are open.

Now, here is the revoltin’ development. What do I do? Do I keep things the same? These people have become my friends and certainly do excellent work for me. Do I report them and become the Scrooge of the century? What do I do?  Yes, “what a revoltin’ development this is.”

Based on how easy it was for my friends to come here and to sign on to DACA thirteen years later I’d say the entire country has a revoltin’ development. How many hundreds or thousands of kids have joined the fray making it too big to fail? It’ll take Trump six years to straighten this out because of all the preposterous jack asses in the country who fight against him from every angle. We not only need to drain the swamp from all the government insider freeloaders we have to vote out the entire Congress. I think a shooting war would be easier; another revoltin’ development.

 

Second Amendment Exercise

big bad potus

I woke up one morning this week at seven, and turned on the news. What I heard spoiled the rest of my day. There was POTUS proposing to remove guns from people on Social Security. Granted he promises to limit the take away to those who cannot function normally, and who have mental problems. My question is this: how many old people have used guns to kill, terrorize, or hold anyone hostage? The people he targets concern themselves more about who will change their diaper, or put the next meal in front of them. So, in true Progressive fashion he wants to further degrade the dignity of seniors in their twilight years. His first affront came when he stole five hundred billion dollars from the Medicare fund to finance his titanic Obamacare.

This matter is not about the threat or danger that people on Social Security present. It is a matter of taking away second amendment rights from all of us. The first victims will be people who worked hard all their lives to earn some financial security in the years after they are no longer able to work. Next, it will be you. Progressives will always invent some lame brained reason to grab a gun. Eventually, the entire population is without a defense mechanism.

If my doctor ever quizzes me even mildly as to whether I own a gun he will become my ex doctor.

Obama knows that older people are those who would most likely use firearms in the way the second amendment intends. I for one, would love to march in the squad of seniors using walkers, wheel chairs, and crutches to chase his skinny ass out of the white house. He won’t know what hit him.

We the Police

police-armored-vehicle5

Two minutes of TV news this morning caused my brain to melt and the big idea light to go on. Those of you who read me regularly know that I am a Patriot, and Patriots believe in defense of the US Constitution. Our government has tried its socialist ass off to fail our right to own firearms. They know that three hundred million people with guns would be able to take them down. They also know that we the people are thinking in that direction. There is one giant problem with this premise, i.e. who will lead such a grass-roots effort? Uncle knows that the three hundred million need a trigger. That many people just don’t wake up one morning and decide this is the day I take my country back. The trigger is someone who can organize and lead. Who among us will do that? Any attempt to make this happen will immediately bring uncle to our front door to knock it down.

Uncle also realizes that there is one system in the country that could become the organizing link. The system in place to serve and protect is the police. The police are highly trained and armed in tactics to put down insurrections, robberies, murders, etc. They are nationwide and are a brotherhood who regularly collaborate. Police would be one leadership link needed by we the people to begin a necessary overthrow of a government gone wild. It is hard to imagine that our police would be up to that task when they work with local governments to keep law and order. It is a stretch but possibly one which could work when the time has arrived. This is exactly why I believe Uncle is now demonizing police and wanting to turn them into helpless wusses in carrying out their duties. The TV thing that tips me off is Obama’s latest order to keep military equipment out of the hands of local police departments. O believes putting military equipment into local hands could be used against him. I am one who believes arming local police will work against me, except perhaps in the case I describe above when we will need the police to lead us into action against a government that has forgotten that it is a government for the people, and by the people.

This is the point when I go to say my prayers while waiting for the front door to come flying off its hinges as men dressed in black with full body armor, and pointing AK’s come rushing in to eliminate an old guy exercising his first amendment right.

Treason or Impeachment, Which Ever Comes First

imagesRecently, I read a headline that claimed Eric Holder Attorney General of the USA is working with banks to deny firearms manufacturers  of loans. Here is an e-mail I received today from a friend. This message is from a business man who makes firearms and he confirms that Bank of America has terminated his business. I thought the Attorney General and the President swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States. We the People must impeach and imprison both of these so-called leaders for Treason. They are deliberately and openly violating their oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution.

An Irrational, but Rational Argument

During today’s headline review one in particular caught me square between the eyes; “Boston Bomber Memorialized as Gun Victim by Bloomberg’s Anti-Gun Movement.” What? I thought we were only crying over poor little school kids killed by crazies? Since when do we memorialize a radical Islamic terrorist shot and killed  by a very legitimate officer of the law in a state where guns are forbidden. Had this same terrorist been shot in Arizona or Texas, he would have been by a citizen.

What I am about to say will no doubt raise the hairs of all police officers in the  country, let “We the People” keep our guns, but disarm the police. The best facts I could dig up from the notoriously incorrect internet is that in year 2012, police officers  nation-wide shot and killed 587 perps in the line of duty. Had we denied police the right to carry a gun, we would have saved 587 people from an ugly death. Think of all the good those people might have done for society. Compare that to losing twenty-six kids to the bullets of a crazy person. Yes, those twenty-six little angels could have grown up to become the greatest and best people on the face of the earth, but a crazy person chose to memorialize his suicide by killing them. I can argue the same for the 587 killed by police in the line of duty. How will we know if one of the 587 might have straightened out to become the country’s next president?

This analogy is preposterous and far-fetched to make a point, i.e. we can argue senseless deaths until we are blue in the face, and never stop innocent people from being killed by bullets. (Remember all the perps killed by the cops were innocent until proven guilty). Here is a question to consider? If we take away every gun from Americans, will we do the same to the police?  Remember, if we disarm the cops we have to take away the second concealed weapon he carries, and the third he might have in his car too, or else who knows what might happen in the dead of night.

Here are some more ways to look at the argument.

In 2011, there were  32,163 reported gun related deaths caused by “We the People.” In that same year the cops killed 587 with bullets. When I compared the ratio of deaths by the total police officers to the total number of officers employed, the police won. There are 683,396 police employed in the US over a population of 313,900,000 souls. Death by a cop’s gun comes to .08% where deaths by “We the People” is .01%. What this tells me is that we are eight times more likely to die by the gun of a police officer than by the gun of another citizen crazy or not.

A few days ago, our Senate narrowly defeated a bill to pass the United Nations Treaty to ban guns which Obama will purportedly sign. The Progressives hell-bent on destroying the sovereignty of the United States by handing over our Second Amendment to the virtuous United Nations lost by a mere four votes. Thank God there were a few Democrat Senators who still love the country. My own Senator Durbin from Illinois voted for the gun ban treaty. In my eyes he is a traitor. In my eyes, Obama will commit an impeachable offense by signing that treaty, it also makes him a traitor. All that treaty will do is to make America more vulnerable to those trying to destroy us. The treaty violates the Second Amendment . The President took an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution, which he will violate by signing the treaty. Of course, he realizes he is making a political argument against those opposed to the violation. He knew the treaty would never pass through Congress.

Here are my proposals:

Keep the Constitution

Keep the Bill of Rights, but add one more to:

1. limit the total number  terms a Senator  and Congressman can serve,

2. delegate “We the People” to approve all raises and fringe benefits awarded to the Congress,

3. impose upon all Leaders, including the President, the same health care and pensions as “We the People”,

4. includes Leaders to live under the same laws as “We the People,”

5. hold all Leaders financially, morally, and ethically responsible for laws they passed for the duration of their life,

6. limit the total wealth a Leader can accumulate while serving to that equal to his salary by the number of years he serves.

7. limit Congressional staff to whatever the home State or District appropriates

8. define the term “natural born citizen,” and require proof of same by those running for office

Lose Obama

Lose the Progressives.

CAN I HAVE AN AMEN?

She Makes Several Excellent Points

A very articulate young Conservative woman, Kira Davis,  makes a passionate argument in favor of  the Second Amendment.

Kudos to Kira. Not only does she make good sense about preserving our Second Amendment rights, she also has an excellent website which I highly recommend.
