Crazy Is As Crazy Does

121219-Two Faces of Gun Control

TWO FACES OF GUN CONTROL

So many things have happened while I slaved in Santa’s workshop. I can’t believe it all. The new furor about gun control really irks me. I will give up  my gun when Hollywood refuses to make any movies with stories that involve guns. I do think the U.S. should outlaw crazies. I’m sure our Progressive Liberal élite think tanks can come up with a suitable test to decide which of us is inclined to be a crazy who shoots innocent children and conservative people. Once they have that test solidified, they can begin putting it to use by gassing everyone who tests positive for crazy.

Of course guns are not the only things that kill school kids while they are in school. Back in the nineteen-fifties a school fire at Our Lady of the Angels Catholic school in Chicago killed ninety-two kids. These kids died a very painful slow death not a quick sudden one. Yes, we should ban fire. There shouldn’t be any open flame allowed anywhere within a block of a school building. That means no furnaces to keep kids warm in winter. They can use electric heat instead. Of course we all know that electrical problems cause fires too. Yep, lets ban electricity too.

The U.S. government is also responsible for promoting crazy. Let’s talk about Fast and Furious. The idea of shipping guns to Mexico to find crazies across the border is really a gem. How about Benghazi-gate. Shipping guns to the Libyans resulted in them using these U.S. provided weapons to kill our embassy ambassador and three others. During the Russian occupation of Afghanistan the U.S. fed guns to the Afghan rebels who now use them against us. The list goes on and on. Instead of stopping the problem at its root-cause we attack the Constitution. The Second Amendment provides we the Sheeple with the ability to revolt against a government gone wild. The government knows this and fears the idea. That is exactly what the Founders intended with the right. The problem is that we the Sheeple haven’t figured out how to revolt. We are way too comfortable watching violent TV shows and movies that promote gun crime, or play our video games that fill our sub conscious minds with the ease of solving problems with the push of a button.

I don’t know what the answer is to keeping crazies from killing with guns, but I do know that collecting all the guns in America is not the solution. If it were, we must incarcerate smokers because cigarettes kill far more people than guns. Cancer is also another killer, i.e. after heart attacks. Maybe a law banning the consumption of all fatty foods is in order. Yeah shut down MacDonalds, Burger King, Wendys. Taco Bell, Culvers, What a Burger, In and Out Burger, and every pizza joint in the country. That move would kill another several million jobs and cause more of us to go on welfare.

Another killer is the automobile. I lay awake at night fearing a middle of night attack by my faithful Death Star parked in the garage. I say ban all cars except the President’s. He needs to ride in a bullet-proof, bomb-proof vehicle to stay safe. People argue “you can’t do that,  how will we get to work?” Tough, if you still have a job, try riding a bicycle to work, or ride a bus. The Greens would love that. Think of all the carbon load you would cut by walking instead of driving that killer car.

A stationary car cannot kill anyone, unless rigged to blow up like a bomb. A stationary gun cannot kill anyone. The only way these instruments of destruction can kill is if there is a crazy using it. When it comes to cars, I argue that we are all guilty of some form of crazy. We have laws to punish us if we speed, run red-lights, drink, and drive, but we still do it. The problem is we all feel in control and do it anyway. Legislating to prevent crazies from committing a crime is as crazy as the crazy himself.

Don’t Mess With Mikey

About thirty years ago, I taught my young son how to shoot a gun. I believed my kids should know about weapons and I wanted to teach them proper use and safety. Evidently, some of it rubbed off because my young son recently took up shooting with a hand gun for sport. He began by taking a gun safety class. Here are his targets using a handgun for the first time in his life.

I recommend you think twice if you intend to mess with him on the street, when you break into his home, or if you harm one of his kids.

TASS, USA Style

History repeats itself, but we tend to deny that the same thing will happen to us because we are so much smarter. The generation that allowed a stupid event to occur did not have the history to look back upon. Because we have the history to learn from we will never let that stupid thing happen to us. Even if we didn’t have the history, we are much smarter than the last generation was. The arguments against making the same mistake continue to go on, and we continue living with our heads securely lodged in our asses. We are too stubborn to believe a stupid thing like the loss of a first amendment right, or a second amendment right can happen, even after repeated attempts to destroy these rights.

This week something happened that woke me up and caused me to start writing again. If I choose to ignore the Administration’s attempt to block news from an organization that opposes it’s view, then I am remiss and deserve to lose my rights . I, however, choose to speak out. During the campaign preceding the election of BHO to the presidency, I often spoke of my fears regarding the man and his intentions. I “felt” that he was heading us into a socialist direction. As the campaign progressed, his language and demeanor made me more certain I was correct. Now, I am convinced without a doubt, that Obama wants to be  the next Fidel Castro of our hemisphere. He will not rest until he has destroyed the Constitution, Capitalism, and the Country of the USA. He continues to lower our country to the level of every other country in the world.  He wants us to be the same as everyone else. The idea of the USA being the greatest country in the world is foreign to him. I digress.

Our Constitutional right to a free press is bothering the man. His Communications Director , Anita Dunn openly admitted that during the campaign they controlled the press. They did not allow interviews with the press for fear that some smart ass might ask a question that they were not prepared to answer with ambiguities. That is why Joe the Plumber became such a threat to Obama. He asked one question that Obama did not have a scripted answer for. BO’s answer gave us a peek into the real direction he was headed. 

His attack on Fox News was a blatantly open attempt to get his administration to control the media just as they had done during the campaign. Life is so much easier when the answers dictate the questions being asked. Instead we see reporters like the little boy who asked the President, “Why do people hate you so much?”

Government Controlled News

Uncle Wants To Erode Your Right To Bear Arms

Hand GunToday, I heard about a new bill being sponsored by Chicago Congressman Bobbie Rush. Called the  

Blair Holt’s Fire Arms Licensing and Record of Sale Act of  2009. Labeled HR 45.

It is the result of a shooting  high school student Blair Holt in Chicago. Actually, the young man heroically put his body between a shooter, and his intended victim. Holt stopped a bullet to save a life. Congressman Rush lives in a highly violent section of Chicago. He really believes that this law will save lives. What he doesn’t see is that the shooters who do the damage don’t really give a rats ass about any laws or the consequences of violating them. The law would only encumber  honest gun owners with stupid rules. The intent is to reduce the number of guns in the hands of the law abiding citizenry. It sounds like the government is setting us up for a take over, and is concerned that we may even fight back to keep our liberties intact.
After reading the following historical facts, read the part
About Switzerland twice.
A LITTLE GUN HISTORY
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control.
From 1929 to 1953,
About 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves,
Were rounded

It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by
New law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their
Own Government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500
Million dollars. The first year results are now in:
Here are some of the metrics:
1. Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent.
2. Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent.
3. Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
4. In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300
Percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the
Criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!
5. While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in
Armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the
Past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is
Unarmed.
6. There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the
ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public
Safety has decreased, after such monumental effort, and expense was
Expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns.

NOTE: I checked these facts on Snopes. Snopes does not refute any of the numbers. They do however, take argument with the interpretation of the statistics in an attempt to minimize the impact of the data. They could be right, and they could be wrong, you be the judge.

 The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians
Disseminating this information. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes,
Gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens

Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them
Of this history lesson.

With guns, we are ‘citizens.’
Without them, we are ‘subjects’.

During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew
Most Americans were ARMED!

If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message
To all of your friends.

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in
Defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more
Important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is
Supplemental.
SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!
SWITZERLA ND ‘S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.
SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY
CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!

NOTE: Every adult in Switzerland is required to have a riflr as part of their conscription to national military service.

IT’S A NO BRAINER!
DON’T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS
IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.

Just think how powerful our government is getting!
They think these other countries just didn’t do it right.
Learn from history.

A Light Went On

Dr Consults with Federal Obamacare for Direction In my world of engineering, I studied project management. Last week, I thought about one of the basic tenets of the training. A light went on above my head. A picture emerged on the subject of  health care. There is a rush by the democratic snake oil salesman to sell the American public on the need for a radical reform of the health care system. Never mind that the current system works fine for 75% of the people.

 I keep hearing about the 47 million people  who do not have health care insurance.  Of course twelve million of these are illegal aliens who shouldn’t qualify for any freebies from the government.  Another twelve million are people who wouldn’t buy or use health care insurance if their life depended on it. That reduces the forty seven million to twenty three million. In my book of arithmetic that translates into six and a half percent of the population that we are worried about. Using the laws of statistics, there is probably some error in these numbers. It might even be as high as six percent. If I have erred and the margin of error is on the minus side, the number of people who are uninsured is .5%. For that we want to create a government bureocracy that will bankrupt the country and take away our freedom.

What does all this have  to do with project management? The rule I learned was this; Good, Fast, Cheap–Pick Two.

The rule applies to making things or to designing health care systems.

1. If you want a good plan designed and implemented fast. It won’t be cheap.

Therin lies the national bankruptcy charge and the higher cost to the U.S. taxpayer, me and you. 

If you want a good plan that is cheap, It won’t be fast. 

 That is why we must slow this bill down. I know the guys in Washington  designing this reform are like  a room full of chimpanzees who are banging away on typewriters. Eventually the chimps will prepare the perfect plan.  Another way to look at this is you will stand in line for a long time to get service that is free. 

3. If you want a cheap plan that is fast, it won’t be good.

This is what Obama is directing lawmakers to give us.  Think about how many generations of Americans will be stuck with lousy health care service because the president wants it to be done fast, for what? I believe he wants it fast so we don’t have time to think about it. Kind of like passing a thousand page stimulus bill without knowing what is in it. I think health care warrants some careful planning and debate that will yield a system that is the best the country can devise, not one that is cobbled together by a bunch of self interest groups that have had pressure applied.

The thought of seeing my parents being advised by a government flunkie about  other options available than health care gives me the willies. I think if it comes to an mandated advisor coming to talk to me about options, I will give him a new one. i.e. the  option I have to excercise my second amendment right to defend myself from crazies.

It is sooo clear to me that the project management rule applies right on the money to our current situation.

President Obama wants a good plan, he wants it to be cheap, and he wants it fast. He can’t have it. He can only have two of the three.

We need to defeat the Health Care Reform Bill or break the rule of Good, Fast, Cheap.

Tired Arguments and Worn Ideas…(edited)

My Flag Flies Everyday

My Flag Flies Everyday

“Don’t come to table with the same tired arguments and worn ideas that helped create this crisis.”…Barack Obama

 Here are some tired old ideas that seem to be bothering, and creating  POTUS’ crises:

 1. United States Constitution

It’s only served us well for two hundred and twenty two years (1787). Why should we believe that these rules should be  followed any longer?  POTUS believes it should be a “living document,” i.e. change the rules we live by as society changes. Since amending the Constitution is a long expensive process it needs to have a fast track system. POTUS proposes that the Supreme Court  interpret the rules by today’s morals, and the laws of other insignificant countries. This way, we get new laws that are being written, not by the Legislative Branch (because they are not capable nor trustworthy to do so) but by the Judicial Branch because the Supreme Court  justices have bigger brains,  more ethics, and are less influenced by lobbiests.

2. Preamble to the Constitution

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence,[1] promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Who needs Justice,  Liberty, or Domestic Tranquility? The government will take care of us from cradel to grave. God forbid our Posterity be allowed to enjoy the same freedoms we have enjoyed.

3. Right to bear arms, Second Amendment

Guns taken out of our hands will keep us from killing each other. As a society we will be safer if we give up our guns. It also makes it much easier for a new dictator to take over the country.

4.  Marriage; between a man and a woman

This one has worked since Adam and Eve, it is so old it must be a lousy concept. Besides, the gays are left out. Marriage was invented to make parents responsible for the children they bring into the world. In the new world definition, sex is for recreation. Children are something the government will dictate when and how many we have.

5.  Right to life

The act of procreation is a natural function of our species to bring life into the world, and to ensure the propagation of man. In the new order, new life is something we allow women, and only women to decide to keep. If they chose not to, the population declines. End of life will be determined by the expense of keeping you alive. If it is cost prohibitive, kiss your ass goodbye. If you are a murderer it’s a different story. The death penalty is abolished across all the states. The worst punishment you can receive  is to serve your days in happy contentment living off the system.

6.  Ten Commandments

In service since Moses accepted them from God. Since God does not exist, the commandments are a hoax. Anyway, they are too old and tired to be of value anymore.

7. GOD

The concept of an eternal being is too radical to believe by some educated minds, therefore all references to God must be eliminated from government and places of education.

8.  Capitalism

The system is the root of all evil, and a deterrent to making all men equal.

9.  Personal Responsibility

The idea that we should depend on our own ability, and energy to survive is a notion that is incomprehensible. Our personal responsibility is delegated to  the government.

10.  Work

Why?

11.  Profit

A dirty word used by capitalists. Profit must be redistributed to the worker. 

12.  Wealth

A radical right wing concept which must be stamped out. All personal wealth must be redistributed.

13. Democracy

How can a dictator survive in a two party system?

14.  Freedom of speech, First Amendment Right

Criticism of the government is totally out of place. Why should we have the freedom to express facts, ideas, beliefs, or opinions that may expose corruption, and oppose the government?

15.  Taxation with Representation

How can the government survive if they have to legislate laws to tax us? Senators and Congressmen do not represent us anymore, they are in government to make a living for themselves, and to re-distribute the profits and wealth of others as they see fit.

16. Strong Defense;

What are we afraid of? The world is made up of peace loving people and governments

 17.  Three Branches of Government

Just listen to the Dictator.

18. Private Sector Jobs

Who needs them? Everybody is taken care of by the government.
