“A Republic…if you can keep it…”


The following is a long post. My advice is to get comfy with a beverage nearby.

The words titling this post were uttered by Benjamin Franklin when asked what government the Continental Congress had created. The document that defined the government of the new country, the United States of American, is the Constitution.

This is the day after the Fourth of July, where we celebrated an earlier document, the Declaration of Independence, where grievances against the King & Government of Great Britain were cited, and declared that the Colonies were not longer a part of Great Britain.

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume, among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.

We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that, as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.

This was essentially a declaration of treason against the King, a crime punishable by death. This fact is often forgotten among those that celebrate (and curse) the founding of this country. The Signers of the Declaration of Independence essentially signed their own death warrants when they affixed their signatures to this document. This fact should not be lightly dismissed by those who take issue with the customs and practices of that time.

We now find ourselves in a virtual maelstrom of chaos wrought by political and ideological enemies of this country. Actions by what I would politely call “the mob” are not the civil discourse that the leaders of this country would like to have to redress grievances against the actions of an out-of-control government (aka police). Instead, it is power through intimidation, and our elected, political leaders have neither the spine nor fortitude to stand up and say “no more,” unless for some reason they identify with “the mob.”

Instead, “the mob,” consisting of Antifa and Black Lives Matter with a few other malcontent groups, have a very specific goal in mind – tear it all down – government, police, all forms of current society – and replace it with something along the lines of the CHAZ/CHOP/Whatever. I think that we all saw how that worked out…chaos with violence & mob/gang rule.

Both Antifa and BLM have stated in various websites and interviews that they will continue to demonstrate, riot, and destroy until their demands are met. And then what? That’s the end? Knowing what I know about human nature, even if they get what they now want, they will want more. They have found by this time that threats and violent actions will get them what they want, and they will want more because they now have power. As the saying goes…

Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Found an article this morning at Townhall.com that is damning for the DEMOCRATs handling of “the mob” as well of the media’s complicit & tacit approval…

For weeks now we’ve watched the Antifa-BLM-just plain thugs and looters’ witches’ sabbath — rampaging through our streets, defacing and destroying treasured memorials, looting, shooting, beating innocents and murdering them. Not a single Democrat leader has condemned these things, choosing instead to pretend these are peaceful protests against police brutality. Every four years they gin up some incident to create the impression that this is a racist society that requires radical reformation and conservatives are to blame.

The media once again played along, hiding the faces of those arrested for the mayhem, downplaying the destruction of lives and property and foolishly finding racism everywhere, though this is the least racist society of any major nation on earth, a nation that sacrificed hundreds of thousands of men and impoverished many to free the slaves. The mobs march with anti-Israelis in support of Palestinians, never mentioning that slavery is a thousands-year-old scourge which still exists in parts of Africa and Arab lands and nowhere in Israel or the Western world. Slavery is, in fact, a natural end point of identity based tribal cultures, which the Democrats historically seem never to apprehend or condemn. Supporting these atavistic morons is not the approach of winners. It is the tactic of a party falling apart at the seams and grasping for any vote, despite what the ginned-up media polls report.

Continuing on…

I have heard some of the talking heads state that the current state of affairs is akin to a second American revolution. That’s absolute fracking bovine excrement.

I challenge any of these “journalists” to read the Declaration of Independence in its entirety with the historical context in place, and compare it to the temper tantrum demands of the rioters. There is no comparison between the two. And I further ask any of these rioters, Antifa, or BLM twits to sign their names to a document stating that they intend to commit treason against the United States. And if caught, would they be willing to go to Federal Prison for a term (or execution) for their actions? After all, if you are going to commit, then commit fully – otherwise, remove yourself to a country of your ideological liking or shut the hell up. Quit trying to f*** up my country – I like it just fine, warts and all.

Let’s consider the following –

The United States isn’t perfect. There are less than stellar events in the history of the country, past and present. Removing statues and rewriting/fabricating history will not change the facts that there were slaves (Black, White, and others) brought to these shores before and after the foundation of the United States. But consider this…

The Civil War was fought over the issue of States Rights, specifically, should the Federal Government be able to dictate to the States actions and laws which may be contrary to what is legal in the States at that time. The heart of the issue was slavery – upon which the Southern states based their entire agricultural economy upon. They simply could not afford hired labor.

Rather than working to phasing out the need for slaves through technology (Eli Whitney’s Cotton Gin, for instance), the politicians of the Southern States (the DEMOCRATS) began the Civil War. While the cause of States Rights was a just one (something that we seemingly have lost over the years), the issue that the Southern DEMOCRATS picked (slavery) for the fight was an immoral one. At the end of four long bloody years, the Civil War ended and slavery was finally ended in the United States.

However, discrimination against the former slaves and their descendants continued (and was allowed) for another hundred years. The infamous Jim Crow laws banned the Negro from owning firearms, land, defined what was allowed (or not allowed), and massive segregation & discrimination was common practice. And by the way, DEMOCRATS were responsible for passing the majority of the Jim Crow laws and forming/using the KKK for “keeping” the freed slaves in line.

The United States has made a lot of progress in removing the Jim Crow laws and creating laws for equality – the 1965 Civil Rights act went a long way toward this end. Progress keeps being made, and quite frankly, I believe certain people and organizations need to get out of the way. However, this quote from Booker T. Washington keeps popping into my mind, and puts a lot of the current insanity into perspective:

“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

― Booker T. Washington

I’ll let that quote stand on its own, and let you connect the dots…

(Have you noticed that the DEMOCRATs have DEMO and RATs combined into one word with a C in the middle? Considering what has been going on for weeks now, that party wants to demolish (DEMO) the country, being traitors (RATS) to the country and the constituents that elected them, all in order to gain control (C) over the country.)

To the people demanding “reparations” for the sin of slavery, there’s the following –

1) There is no one alive today in the United States today that personally owned a slave prior to 1865. How in the world could it be expected that reparations be paid to the descendants of slaves, and how would any of it be proven? The logistics are staggering, and to pay anyone out of the government treasury is taking money via taxes is ludicrous and unfair. The whole thought is one of insanity, and meant to reinforce the above quote from Booker T. Washington.

2) Somewhere between 650,000 and 720,000 soldiers died during the civil war, most of them white. Isn’t that enough blood for you? Or are you just looking for another handout? Or are you just attention seeking? Somehow, I think more of the Booker T. Washington quote

Finally, an excerpt from President Trump’s speech at Mt Rushmore on July 3, 2020:

“Our founders launched not only a revolution in government, but a revolution in the pursuit of justice, equality, liberty, and prosperity. No nation has done more to advance the human condition than the United States of America and no people have done more to promote human progress than the citizens of our great nation. It was all made possible by the courage of 56 patriots who gathered in Philadelphia 244 years ago and signed the Declaration of Independence. They enshrined a divine truth that changed the world forever when they said, “All men are created equal.” These immortal words set in motion the unstoppable march of freedom. Our founders boldly declared that we are all endowed with the same divine rights, given us by our Creator in Heaven, and that which God has given us, we will allow no one ever to take away ever.”

Make no mistake, there are forces within this country that wish to destroy it from within, and I truly am believing that is the Democrat Party and its allies in the media, BLM, Antifa, and other. I do not believe I am a candidate for the Tin Foil Hat Society, but as the saying goes, if it quacks like a duck & acts like a duck, then its a duck. All you have to do is objectively look around and see what’s going on.

Yes, we have a Republic. It’s up to us, the Citizens of the United States, to keep it by holding accountable the people we elect to represent us (not to lead us).

Stay safe, and be well.

Michigan, You’ve Elected an Idiot for Governor


The title of this post is taken from a post by fellow Michigander Jen Kuznicki in her blog of the same name.  She listed the exact same things that my wife and I have discussed over the past week & beyond.

In other words, she stole my thunder in the best way possible – and I couldn’t be happier.

Sit down, read it, and contemplate the idiocy my state is undergoing.  Hopefully, your state isn’t suffering near the contradictory insane orders that we’re going through.

Stay Safe, and Stay Well, my friends.

Quarantined in Michigan


As many of you know, I have lived in Michigan for the past 20 years after growing up in Indiana & working around the country. It’s a beautiful state, and we’ve enjoyed living here. That is, until the current governor appears to be spreading her socialist wings and trying to turn the state into Commifornia…

For instance (excerpts from The American Spectator post “The Worst Governor in America” by Robert Stacy McCain)-

Executive Order 2020-42 is titled, “Temporary requirement to suspend activities that are not necessary to sustain or protect life,” and is quite specific about which activities are and are “not necessary.” Stores with “more than 50,000 square feet” (e.g., Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot) are ordered to close areas of the store “by cordoning them off, placing signs in aisles, posting prominent signs, removing goods from shelves, or other appropriate means” that sell carpet or flooring, furniture, and “garden centers and plant nurseries.”

Barbecue grills, lawn chairs — anything in the garden section is now  verboten in Michigan. (Also includes selling American flags).

Whitmer imposed a strict prohibition on “not necessary” travel, which means that Michiganders are forbidden even to visit their own private vacation cabins in the “Up North” part of the state.

Lottery tickets can still be sold right along with pot and alcohol.

Abortion clinics are still open, barber & hair salons are closed.

Boating and golfing are prohibited.

Prisoners were released from lockup, although the public was assured that these were low-level criminals that presented no harm to the public (for which I call “BS”).

Last month, the governor actually threatened the licenses of medical professionals who prescribed the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) for coronavirus patients. A week later, however, Whitmer was trying to secure supplies of HCQ from the federal strategic stockpile.

The term “insanity” has been used to describe Governor Whitmer’s actions concerning her response to the epidemic. I seem to remember her complaining that the Federal government (aka President Trump) not being prepared for the outbreak, however, my question to the Governor would be “What have you done to prepare the State of Michigan for any disasters like this?” The answer to that question would most likely be crickets…

But what about the Federal government? Veronique de Rugy at the American Institute for Economic Research had this (h/t to Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit):

The lack of preparedness at every level of government (federal, state, and local) has nothing to do with a lack of funding or inadequate staffing. Instead, it has everything to do with governments’ bloat, mismanagement, cronyism, and poor focus.

That’s particularly true of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). In theory, the prevention of diseases like this one is the agency’s entire reason d’être. It is right there in its name “Disease Control.” Its mission statement page also makes the centrality of this goal clear. It states as its priority “confronting global disease threats through advanced computing and lab analysis of huge amounts of data to quickly find solutions.”

Apparently, not really.

While there is a lot of blame to go around, it is no secret how much the CDC is to blame for the country’s lack of preparedness to take on the coronavirus (followed very closely in ineptitude by the Food and Drug Administration). The agency’s failure to understand the severity of this virus, to provide useful advice to the American people and to political leaders, and to deliver appropriate testing capabilities has been widely documented.

Some random thoughts that tie into all of this:

Projections for infections and resulting deaths have not lived up to reality. Doctor Fauci has publicly walked back the projections several times. Obviously, the models that they are using are about as useless as the climate change models…

Watching the career politicians jump through hoops to slip in funding for their pet projects only shows that we cannot trust our elected officials to be good stewards of the public. They’re not representing the people that elected them, but the party that supports them through the special interests that bought their allegiance.

Still true:

“To rely on the government for anything long-term is stupidity at best and insanity at worst.” – Tom Roland, Equal Diversity

More and more governors are issuing executive orders restricting travel, closing businesses, restricting or banning firearm sales & processing of licenses – in other words, restricting freedoms that we all take for granted (or at least the clueless). Make no mistake – the power-hungry socialists are taking full advantage of exercising their authority over the citizens of their states. They are definitely taking notes on what they can do and how they can do it. And the media, our supposed independent watchdog, will be complicit in anything they do.

Which is probably why there were an estimated one million new gun owners last month. We The People do not trust our government nor the media. With the various episodes of tyranny and stupidity in unequal measures, who can blame us? As as a side note, I understand a good portion of those new owners were Liberals!!

I’m starting week 5 working from home. Cabin fever is setting in despite the daily walks and occasional trips to the store. While I don’t miss the trip back and forth to work, there is something to be said about routine. I will be happy to get back to something resembling a “normal” routine. What that will be is anyone’s guess.

Stay well, stay safe.

Hyper-Virus?


Almost two months has passed since I’ve last posted something, and it’s been a struggle to find time to write. It certainly hasn’t been for a lack of topics!

The big thing now is the Corona Virus, which the media (more on that later) is telling us has a 1% to 3.4% mortality rate (sources and mileage vary). While this doesn’t seem like much, if you run the numbers of roughly 350 million people living in the United States, a 2% mortality rate (I’m being generous) translates to 7 million people!! While the very young and the older generations are most at risk (undeveloped and weak immune systems), that’s still a lot of people!

The media and Socialist Democrats are blaming President Trump for not taking action quick enough, or not doing enough, or something. Personally, he might have done more, but I don’t see how because he has been opposed politically by the Socialist Democrats and criticized constantly by the media no matter what he does. I do imagine that he is relying upon experts in their respective fields to take the appropriate actions.

When this crisis first started, flights from Asia (China) were restricted. Then, when Europe started becoming a Petri dish, flights from Europe were restricted. The President’s critics cried “foul” stating that this wouldn’t contain the virus to Europe, but rapidly quieted down when European countries began closing their borders and their own countries down to halt the spread of infection.

Now, let’s be realistic – the Corona Virus will come to the United States (it’s here already), people will become infected, and their will be casualties. What closing the borders (walls, restricted travel, etc.) will do is slow the spread of the virus, giving our health providers and resources time to study the virus, and to develop better ways to treat the victims and better protect the healthy.

That is the sane, rational course of action – something the media and Socialist Democrats know very little about.

The Socialist Democrats look at this to gain more power for their cause and to diminish that of the President. The criticism that the President has had to endure is absolutely uncalled for in the face of this crisis. While working on legislation for releasing funds and resources for combating the Corona Virus, the Socialist Democrats of the House tried slipping governmental funding for abortion into the bill. And then after the bill was submitted to the Senate tried leaving DC stating that their part was done. Obviously, the Socialist Democrats of the House are not concerned with the health and well being of the Citizens of the United States.

The Media reporting is not news, or at least, not very much of their content is news or useful information. When there are endless panels discussing the topic of the day with “I think” and “I believe” qualifiers in their statements, that’s entertainment, not news or information. This is for ratings points, which translates into revenue for the Media. Unfortunately, the Stock Market failed to discern the difference between opinion/entertainment and news/information, and went for a massive tumble based on the hysteria ginned up by the Media.

Now I’m not stating that there isn’t a problem – I believe there is – I just think that the Media is over-hyping the problem, and causing more issues than what there should be. Think Sargent Joe Friday “Just the Facts, Ma’am” and you’ll see where I’m going with this. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have empty shelves where toilet paper would normally be stocked.

That’s all for now. Hope it’s not another two months to the next post…

Bumper Sticker Logic and Other Rantings


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.


Moving on…

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.

An Afternoon In September


Here I am with an afternoon on my hands, and what do I do? Write a blog post, of course!!

Like Robert, life has been busy between work and personal life. Topics come and go, but the really important ones persist. For instance…

One topic that will never die is climate change. This past week, a 16-year old Swedish girl spoke before the United Nations accusing them of stealing her childhood due to their inaction on climate change by making the climate change issue a political issue instead of addressing the Earth-ending, mass-extinction event crisis that she says it really is. The worst offenders, China and India, were never mentioned during the tirade, but other countries (including the United States) were. While I’m not surprised at any of this continuing circus, here are a few thoughts…

As far as I’m concerned, the whole thing is a giant publicity stunt designed to thrust the issue of climate change back into the world’s spotlight. Much was made about this girl sailing across the ocean in a racing sailboat, but not a whole lot was mentioned about the crew jetting back to Europe, and the racing sailboat being shipped back on a container ship. Moreover, if anyone is to blame for stealing this girl’s childhood, it’s the people brainwashing her into near states of hysteria with the assertion of the world coming to an end due to people living normal lives in our civilization.

By reading the above, you probably think that I’m a knuckle-dragging throwback to the caveman days a couple of decades past the primordial ooze. Not so, says I! Consider the following:

When I was growing up in Indiana in the 1960s, I watched a science related TV show concerning the coming Ice Age (global cooling). I was probably around 5 or 6 at the time. Later that day, I looked out the back door of the house, and saw it was snowing…and it was mid-July!! Needless to say, I lost it, crying and looking around fearfully for the glacier that I was sure that was coming to engulf the house like a tidal wave. It took my Mother several minutes to calm me down.

So when I see the Climate Warming Cooling Change crowd trot out their next crying child intent upon shaming the world into bending to their way of thinking, I think back to that day 50+ years ago of where they terrified a young child. They haven’t changed – they have no reservations on using children to force the issue emotionally because that’s all they have. They’ve faked their data, and cannot win any other way.

And by the way, flying on private jets to Climate Change conferences doesn’t look good either…

Continuing on…

Have you ever noticed that as soon as there is a shooting with multiple people hurt or injured that doesn’t include a gun-control paradise like Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, or Baltimore, the bodies haven’t even cooled before anti-rights legislation is introduced by a certain party? It doesn’t matter if the legislation, if enacted, wouldn’t have prevented the tragedy. It’s the push to use the emotions of the tragedy to “do something” and make it appear that a certain party “cares” about the safety of the people instead of trying to control them.

Yes, I’m referring to the Democratic Party, which is now rapidly becoming the Democratic Socialist Party. Their platform is falling right in line with the precepts of Socialism, of which the common citizen has no rights having given those rights to the government. Don’t believe me? Think about it – the Democratic Socialists are advocating on the debate stage and in press releases the following:

  • Confiscation of wealth (Bernie’s “no Billionaires” statement and Warren’s proposed confiscation of 401K accounts are just part of raising everyone’s taxes)
  • “Free” healthcare and education (paid for by the raised taxes, and provided by “approved” providers in both fields)
  • Confiscation of firearms (every socialist and communist country has done this with millions killed by their governments because the people could not fight back.)
  • Government approved speech, religion, and business practices (think of hate crime laws & policies forcing religious-based businesses to provide services that goes against their stated beliefs (i.e., Masterpiece Bakery), and you get the idea. There is a movement to deny banking credit, loans, and credit-card processing to the firearms industry.)
  • Suspension of rights due to perceived harm or future actions (extreme protection orders, or red-flag laws bypass due process protections, and could be expanded to include almost any action, statement, or complaint)
  • Create a single-party government like California by allowing open borders, unverified voting by illegal aliens, and ballot box fraud (voter harvesting). Single-party governments such as Soviet Russia and Communist China killed millions of their own citizens for “non-conformance” to the party line & policies, and political opponents “disappeared” or were shipped off to “re-education camps” (something that one Presidential candidate has suggested). Venezuela is only the latest example that I can think of.

Yes, I believe that the Democratic Party is becoming the Democratic Socialist Party, which in reality, is the Anti-Rights Party.

Last for this post is the continuing temper-tantrum of the Democrats to find something, anything, to remove Donald Trump from the Presidency. Trump has shown that the politicians in Washington are as inept as we suspected, and more corrupt than what we could have ever imagined.

First, it was Russia, now it’s Ukraine. I don’t anything will stick, and it will be a huge waste of time and tax-payer dollars.

Quite frankly, I think that the American People, by and large, are sick of the three-ring circus held by the clowns of the Democrats. I know I am.

We as citizens need to remember that these people work for us as Representatives, not as Royalty. It’s time that they are reminded of that.

I know that some of you reading this post do not like President Trump either for his actions, manners, or words. However, I believe that a non-politician like President Trump is the best chance we have for a government that will serve the people instead of the political elite. And yes, I admit that I held my nose when voting for him, but I realized that Hillary was infinitely worse. President Trump has worked out better than I had hoped.

So hold your nose, Vote Republican in the 2020 elections. I cannot vote for a party for which it’s candidates promote ideas and policies that undermine this country’s founding principles and citizens.

More Evil


My apologies for not posting – life has been busy, and this weekend is no exception. This post will be short – maybe…

We’ve have had not one, but two mass-murders this weekend – one in Texas, the other in Ohio. Details are still coming in, but I can almost predict the following:

  • The Democrat Candidates, aka The Clown Posse, will all call for more gun control because “we must do something” even though their “something” will only impose restrictions on the law-abiding gun owner & not anyone bent on evil.
  • The murders will have occurred in so-called “gun-free zones,” which obviously do not work as the murderers had guns. They should be renamed “defenseless zones.”
  • The murderers have thoughts of grandeur – wanting their names in the news even though they may not be around to see it…their gory way of becoming famous. They could also be mentally unstable.
  • There are early rumblings in the media of tying these shootings to the hate-filled rhetoric of the President. (How the President is somehow responsible for this is beyond me.)

I have given a bit of thought as to why it seems that we are seeing an increase in these types of events, and while these thoughts have been put forth by others, seem to be true.

As mentioned above, many of the murderers have mental health issues, some diagnosed, others not. Our society, with its focus on instant gratification through social media, certainly doesn’t help. Twitter is a garbage dump – foul language and hateful comments by people famous and those not even on the radar all clamor for that recognition that these people crave that they otherwise do not receive in real life. Technology has exasperated the problem, not resolved it.

Our media takes the mantra “if it bleeds, it leads” to a new low. The rush of the media in their desire to be first in the 24-hour news cycle reports everything possible, presenting misinformation as fact just to be first. And they gleefully report the murderers name non-stop with their backgrounds, beliefs, manifestos, and body count with the fervor of fans at a concert. No wonder people who are unstable consider mass-murder as a route to infamous immortality.

And all the while, the casualty count of one of these mass-murders is a bad weekend on Chicago’s South side. But let’s not go there because of politics and agendas…as in the politicians ignoring the murder rates in Democrat controlled cities, and a complicit media lying by omission the real problems surrounding gun-related murders.

Rather than dealing with criminal behavior and the mental health aspect of the problem, the politicians want to demonize a piece of metal and plastic. This provides the politicians in these areas deniability while promising to “do something about this epidemic” during multiple campaign seasons. Somehow, it never gets done other than trying to restrict the legal ownership of weapons. Nothing is done about crime or mental health, no matter what the politicians promise.

Politicians also have no problems, especially with firearms, with passing laws to restrict anything that can be used by a private citizen to defend themselves. After all that’s the job of the police – if they get to the scene of the crime, if at all… Politicians want the power over the people, which has been the function of governments throughout history.

As far as the media is concerned, why would they want to help solve a source of news? After all, mass-murders provide coverage for days if not weeks of misinformation to the masses as well as the all important ratings points…

Yes, I’m a cynical bastard, and I can go down this road a long way… To whit…

I guarantee if the weapon(s) used in these murders was the problem, there would be 100,000+ murders a day as there are over 100,000,000 million weapons in the hands of private American citizens. There wouldn’t be anyone left in the country in a few weeks.

To restate an earlier comment, I have no idea how the President of the United States could be responsible for instigating mass-murder. The most hate-filled rhetoric has been coming from various members of the Democrat Party, and has been ever since President Trump was elected. If anything, the Democrats should be looking in a mirror to look for the source of the problem. But then again, they need to see a reflection first…

Most of the mass-murders have been leaning toward or are Democrats or Democratic-Socialists if they had any political leanings. (look at the Bernie-supporting gunman that shot up a Republican baseball team, for example) That should tell you how unhinged that party is becoming, and how unstable some of their followers are. Thus far, I haven’t heard of any Conservative or Conservative-leaning mass-murderers.

The reason the Democrat politicians want to ban AR15s is because the full-auto variant (the M16 and M4) is over 50 years old, and hundred’s of thousands of veterans know how to use this firearms platform. Should the Democrats ever succeed in achieving absolute power, many of the patriotic veterans, who swore to uphold the Constitution, could take up arms with a firearm that they are intimately familiar with. This presents a clear threat to that desire for power.

Last, with the politicians stating that it’s the police’s job to protect citizens is an absolute lie. Police are under no legal obligation to protect a private citizen, and that has been upheld in the courts. In other words, the police arrive after the crime with the intention of gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and outlining the body before carting it away to the morgue. The only first responder at the scene of the crime is going to be the (potential) victim, and if they live or no depends on how they can defend themselves. The politician does not care about you except for your vote, and only if it’s for them.

That’s all for now. We’ll see what the aftermath is from this goes.

Sanctuary Evil


This past week, President Trump announced that it was being considered and reviewed that overcrowded detainment facilities would be relieved by releasing (by court order) the illegal immigrants into sanctuary cities and states. Of course, the Leftist Mayors, Governors, and various Congress-critters predictably howled with outrage, charging the President with almost every accusation under the sun.

Quite frankly, I’m sitting back with equal parts being amused, laughing, and somewhat sad.

The amused and laughing parts are at the amazingly nova-bright in-your-face hypocrisy of the Left. For the past couple of years, they have been screaming about the inhumane conditions and cruelty of the illegal immigrants being kept in detainment centers. They have touted the benefits of the illegal immigrants – diversity, increased economic prosperity, and lower crime(!). When it’s announced that they may get more of their cherished illegal immigrants, then they scream about the inhumanity and cruelty of releasing those same illegal immigrants into cities that have publicly proclaimed themselves of being open and welcome to illegal immigrants.

Which is it? Open city or closed city? Good illegals or bad illegals? President Trump has the Left holding their pants up in the corner that they have put themselves in with no way out. It’s about time someone has shown these morons what hypocrites they really are.

The sad part comes into a couple of categories.

The first is for the immigrants themselves. Most, not all, are looking for nothing more than survival and a better life. I fully understand that, but that’s where my sympathy ends. Crashing through a country’s border and then having to look over your shoulder for the rest of your life is no way to live. You would always be illegal, and probably being taken advantage of as well. There are better ways to do this the right way.

The second are for the citizens of the towns, cities, and states (mostly in California) that have declared themselves as sanctuaries for the illegal immigrants. I don’t know if the citizenry voted/approved of the sanctuary status for their locations, but I’m fairly sure that once the influx hits, job availability will go down, wages will go down, and crime will go up. I’m sure that once the pain hits, the citizens will want change, but I’m not wholly sure if they will connect the actions of their elected officials with the problems and vote someone in that isn’t a Liberal Democrat.

What is evil about the whole situation is that the Liberal Democrats have put their political power above their sworn duty to serve the citizens that elected them. They are using the illegal immigration issue, in part, to solidify their hold on power. By using this issue, they are using the illegal immigrants – people – to further this agenda.

In other words, they are hurting thousands of people, citizens and illegals, to acquire power. Folks, that’s a type of cynical evil that I’m appalled at.

I hope that the people of these cities, towns, and states stand up to this evil, shout “Enough!!”, and can these twits as soon as possible. The sooner they wake up, the better.

I have my doubts that will happen anytime soon, but that’s another post for another time.

The Party of Death


Friends, it’s been a while since I’ve posted, and for that I apologize. Not that I haven’t thought about it multiple times. Like many of you, I’ve been watching the unbelievable political circus that seems to have no end to the insanity. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem that it’s going to end anytime soon.

I truly am beginning to believe that the Democrats are the Party of Death. Death upon demand to the unwanted and innocent, public shaming of those who do not bow down to their mantra, endless persecution to those in power who oppose the insane policies of the Democratic Party, and division to all so as to easily control the rest. In other words, Death to the Republic.

By no means is the following a complete list of the egregious actions of the Democrat Party, just the most outrageous.

The first is the outrageous passage of the law in New York permitting late term abortions on babies (yes, babies!) that are viable outside the womb. Worse and most disturbing part of this was the outright celebration of the New York legislature and Governor when this law passed.

Now please forgive me for the following rant…

The legal definitions of a fetus are rooted in the manipulations of the Supreme Court in 1973 in order to satisfy the Due Process clause of the 14th Amendment. Indeed, any legal definition of a fetus must ignore the fact that the “clump of cells” is a developing human being, and is thus alive. Thus, the legality is met that the “clump of cells” is akin to cancer, is like a diseased foreign body, and can be removed without fear of prosecution for the murder of another human being.

Because that is exactly what it is. Murder.

I fully understand that people make mistakes, and sometimes that mistake results in the miracle of life. However, one should not compound that mistake by murdering an innocent baby. I know a couple of women that have had abortions and have told me in confidence that they regret and mourn for their aborted babies, and wish they had not done it.

For politicians to not only celebrate the passage of such a law that legalizes murder but to also extend taxpayer funding to an organization that provides such services is an abomination to the American Citizen and God.

End rant…

Second is the radicalization and hypocrisy of the Democrat Party. This could be split into several posts, but I’ll do my best to briefly summarize it all in a few paragraphs.

The apparent embracing of the failed philosophy of Socialism is being promoted front and center as the cornerstone of the Democrat Party’s platform. Examples abound from history (the latest from Venezuela) of the destructiveness of this philosophy as a governmental system. And yet the touting of Socialism to cure all the ills from healthcare to social injustice is being promoted by the Democrat Party.

For the Democrat Party to foist Socialism upon the rest of the country, they would need to turn the country into California. California is almost totally under the Democrat’s control. Every week we hear about new taxes and laws being passed that defy common sense (banning plastic drinking straws, for instance). This is where the following comes into play: Immigration and Voting.

One of the biggest fights between President Trump and the Democrats that we have seen is on the issue of Immigration. The Democrats are all for the status-quo, which allows almost unlimited immigration from countries that are socialist in nature, which means that the majority of the immigrants would vote for Democrat Party candidates. President Trump (and some, but not all Republicans) are for building a barrier and restricting/reforming immigration policies & laws to something approaching common sense and sanity. Where this is going to end is anyone’s guess at this point in time.

Voting is a sore point with the Democrats. The Hildebeast lost the last election due to the Electoral College vote, but won the popular vote. There is a movement by Democrat controlled State legislatures to circumvent the Electoral College, but that probably will be challenged in the courts.

Of more concern is voter fraud, which is exacerbated by “motor-voter” laws and the objections of Democrats to voter ID laws. Election boards are required by law to purge their voter roles periodically, but don’t since that will allow for election fraud from both parties (although it does seem to benefit Democrats more than Republicans). The last election saw the practice of “ballot harvesting,” of which lends itself to fraud.

The basis of our Republic is the ability of the American citizen to be heard by the government. One of those ways is by the election of officials through voting. The voting system must therefore be beyond reproach. As it stands today, it is not, and is suspect in Democrat-controlled states like California and cities like Chicago.

The Democrats are also no strangers to hypocrisy. For instance:

  • Several years ago, all the leading Democrats (Pelosi, Schumer, Reid, Obama, et. al.) all stated that a wall on our Southern border was necessary. Now they are opposed to it politically because President Trump (a Republican) made it a campaign promise.
  • If a Democrat is credibly accused of sexual or racial misconduct, it’s no big deal. If a Republican even has a hint of sexual or racial misconduct, it’s scorched earth to remove or defame that person. Think of the verifiable actions of Governor Ralph Northam, Senator Corey Booker, former Represenative Barney Frank, and contrast that with the treatment of now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavenaugh on an unverified accusation and you’ll understand.

I can probably go on, but quite frankly, it’s damned overwhelming.

In my last post, I had the lofty goal of trying to put forth a few thoughts to retrieve our country back from the Democrats. Outside of pushing back on every Democrat-sponsored proposal and voting against every Democrat Party candidate, I’ve got nothing. And perhaps that’s good – it’s simple and direct.

Starting local and working our way up may be the best way to effect change. Supporting those candidates that support the Constitution and the People in actions not words is also a way to change the political landscape. And as a complementary plan, support those organizations that try and keep government accountable such as Project Veritas and the Second Amendment Foundation.

Until next time.

Cynical Thinking


The aftermath of the Parkland shooting has been predictable if not disconcerting. “News” networks put on town-halls and groups to “discuss” what needs to be done to prevent or stop such occurrences. The mantra is that guns are bad, the NRA is at fault, and law enforcement will protect everyone.

And it’s all show and bullshit.

If anyone cared to investigate what the NRA stood for is this: The NRA promotes the safe ownership and legal use of firearms. The NRA is the oldest civil-rights non-profit organization funded by it’s 5 million + members, and stands for the rights of the American citizen involving the Second Amendment. Not one of the several mass-murderers that have been involved in the horrific shootings has been linked to the NRA, but the NRA is blamed for them (even though the Sutherland Church killer’s rampage was stopped by an NRA member with the same type of rifle the killer used).

And by the way, the NRA did support the gun-control acts of 1934, 1938, and 1968 – of which regulations of machine guns, suppressors, sawed-off shotguns, the creation of Federal Firearm Licensing (FFL) for dealers, and the creation of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). Doesn’t sound like the rabid, gun-toting freaks that the MSM paints them out to be.

The knee-jerk reaction to any of these mass-murders is to ban the instrument, the implement, the tool that the murderer used – the gun. That’s self-deception – the person that is ultimately responsible is the person that makes the conscious decision to commit murder. Maybe that’s too much for some of the Leftists to contemplate.

Perhaps the gun-control/banners have faith that if all the firearms in the US were to magically disappear that all murder and crime would disappear too. That too is self-deception – criminals do not need a gun to commit a crime. Knives, hammers, fists, and brute strength will be used with more frequency since the victim no longer has an effective deterrent to an assault or crime. In fact, multiple instances have shown that criminals are emboldened to commit violent crimes as they are no longer afraid of being shot.

Then there’s the argument that government (through passing laws) and law enforcement (to enforce the laws) will protect everyone from anything like this from happening again.

That, folks, is the biggest deception and self-delusion of all.

Laws do not prevent evil from committing mass murder or any other crime for that matter. Laws only state what is wrong and the penalties for committing the act.

As noted in this blog before, law enforcement has no legal obligation to protect you, the citizen. This has been upheld in courts of law multiple times. Additionally, it has been revealed in the past week that at least three Sheriff Deputies were outside the school while the Parkland shooter continued his slaughter inside. They were in a position to enter the school and confront the shooter and save lives, but they did not.

Additionally, law enforcement had multiple encounters with the shooter, and tips from other people that stated that this person was unstable and had made threats against the school. None of this was followed up on, and now I feel that 17 people are now dead because of the ineptitude of law enforcement, and by extension, the government.

Almost 20 years ago, the Columbine shootings occurred. Since that time, many things have been proposed and implemented: zero tolerance policies, gun-free zones, anti-bullying campaigns, and other school security measures. And since that time, the shootings have continued at not only schools, but other public places.

I can go into a lot of the reasons, many of which could be recycled from previous posts, as to why these people go off the deep end and start racking up a very real body count. Mental illness, drugs (prescription and otherwise), and terrorist jihad.

But I have a darker thought as to why these events continue to occur, and it ventures into tin-foil hat territory. I don’t want to think this, but the pieces are beginning to fit together, especially since the Parkland shooting.

There is a concerted effort by the Media, the Politicians (mostly Liberal-Progressive Democrats, although there are a few RINOs), and the usual Liberal groups to remove firearms from the hands of American citizens. These are enabled by various anti-gun groups, the super-rich people like Soros and Bloomberg, and our supposedly neutral institutions of higher learning and government. They scream and holler that “something needs to be done,” and yet they know (and sometimes admit) that any laws they pass or guns that are banned, the event would not have been prevented. But their goal is to ban firearms, no matter what the cost may be.

And that’s exactly what I’m afraid of – the cost.

All of the “solutions” that have been proposed do nothing to protect the schools or the children from some maniac with a gun or a bomb. Yes, there have been improvements in preventing a person from coming into a school, but nothing that would stop a gunman from continuing his rampage once he breaches those barriers. Sheltering in place and praying that a maniac doesn’t come into your room to kill you is not an active solution, but a passive one. It has been shown that an active solution (i.e., engaging and killing the shooter) is the only way to stop the body-count from rising. But there is resistance to this.

Additionally, the names of the mass-murderers have been plastered all over the news, giving them a spot in history. This is encouraging the future mass-murderers to commit crimes against their fellow person. I believe this is a factor in the number of school shootings we have seen.

And then there is the fallacy that a law and a sign that states certain areas are gun-free zones will magically make those areas free from a gun-toting maniac with murderous intentions.

All of this is making me think there are people or organizations that are intentionally orchestrating the non-hardening of the schools to fuel the gun-control agenda with the end-game being the removal of the American citizen’s right to own and use arms. Let a maniac run up a sufficient body count, continuously manipulate public opinion, and soon there will be gun bans and confiscations like Europe and Australia.

I told you that this was dark, tin-foil hat territory. Just tell me where I’m wrong.
