Quote of the Day

"Republicans have THE LOWEST approval ratings since the Clinton impeachment"

And we all remember how badly things went for the GOP after that. They only kept control of Congress for 8 more years and won 2 Presidential elections.

Simple and effective...I hope

We've all been there. You come across a new anti on the interweb tubes and debate begins...AT SQUARE ONE.

Individual vs collective?
Who is the militia?
The intent of the Founders.
Constitutional Rights vs State powers.
Common sense this and reasonable that.

Every time we turn around, we have to go back to the beginning and start the slow process of teaching people how to unlearn falsehoods.

Not that I'm pooh-poohing that approach, I understand that it's necessary. I'm just growing tired of it. I imagine this is what it must be like being a multi-grade school teacher for small children. Start them out making simple drawings decorated with elbow maccaronni and some wonderful tasting glue. Teach them how to share toys, even the really cool ones. Tell them that pissing in the sandbox is a major no-no(I only did this because we had made a mock-up hick-town farm and the irrigation ditches were dry). I felt that accuracy was paramount, yet my teacher felt otherwise. In hindsight, it's probably a good thing she caught me in the act because as I was relieving myself, I was staring down at the back-forty and thought they could use a few cow patties. Move on to the alphabet, counting to ten and what happens when you mix primary colors. Then comes addition, subtraction and eventually the dreaded multiplication tables.

Your current class graduates and you get a whole new batch of youngsters and start the whole process over again from scratch.

This is the first installment of a theme I'm going to develope for those who wish to bypass all the soft tissue we've all grown adept at delivering out of sheer repetition, and cut close to the bone from the start.

My main gamble is that it will employ pure logic; something the antis seem to have an issue with. But it will be logic of this magnitude...

All men are mortal
Socrates is a man.
Therefore, Socrates is mortal.

What I fear is that the antis are coming from a position exemplified by...

All men are mortal.
Socrates is a man.
Therefore, all men are Socrates........with a freakishly small penis.

So here goes; feel free to try this out on your local anti and let me know if it works or if I'm a retard on a level usually only achieved in parallel universes where Janet Reno is considered a hot chick.

My hope is to create arguments that I fully admit may not sway the antis, but I hope that if they fall into the trap of trying to refute them, will expose themselves for the naked idiots that they are. Also consider that there are far more nuetrals out there than antis, and they both vote. Fence sitters are both the true "fish in the barrel" and the most valuable ally we can recruit.

1. LEO resources are finite.
1.5 LEO organizations and the associated "Justice System(DA's, jails, judges, parole boards, etc)" MUST pick and choose which crimes they make arrests for, which ones they prosecute and which people they release early in order to make room for this whole new class of criminals.
2. The laws already on the books are not fully enforced due to item #1. Feel free to customize this one due to experience. My standby anecdote is a guy up the road a ways from me who COULD HAVE received 245 years for his latest crime and ended up doing 5 months.
3. If another new law is passed, the limited resources which ALREADY do a piss-poor job at enforcing the ones we already have will DECREASE due to a brand new half-assed attempt of enforcing it.
4. Net result is that all laws will be enforced less. Arrests for violations of prior laws will decrease. Prosecutions for violating prior laws will decrease.

When's the last time the police stopped you for jaywalking or spitting on the sidewalk?

Whenever an anti-gunner is losing an argument, they invariably pull out the tired meme that people who own guns are compensating for a lack of manhood.

Well this photo from the Dec. '09 issue of Shooting Times shows that criminals must be the ones subconsciously compensating by modifying their guns to fire bullets that end up looking like this:

"OathKeeper" = "RightWing Terrorist"

Someone has been reading the SPLC's reports on "Right Wing Extremists" and has decided that swearing to uphold the Constitution is a bad thing.

What this article really shows besides a desire to suppress opinions he doesn't like is a lack of a decent editor as well as quite a bit of ignorance of concepts such as sovereignty in a federal system is NOT the same as declaring independence and that it is not contrary to the UCMJ to disobey an unlawful order.

He also gives a nice shout out to the Sipsey Street Irregulars.

The net effect of this will be to get more people to sign up. They are their own worst enemy.

David Codrea also has an Examiner column on another Oathkeeper hitpiece.

Is that how they 'vigorously defend' the hunting and shooting sports?

Unemployment rate over 10%? RAISE TAXES!!

That's the response of the Illinois Legislature to the unemployment rate going over 10%. Including discouraged workers and re-training, the number is over 15%.

Obviously the most logical thing to do is to raise fees to make it even harder for people to make ends meet. All to justify an expanded infrastructure that will then require even higher taxes and fees to maintain.

Guns=Nat'l Health Issue

As has been reported, the NIH is trying to revive the meme that owning a firearm is a health hazard.

This is happening at the same time that Congress and the current administration is trying to ram through legislation that will penalize people for doing things considered 'unhealthy' including drinking soda.

Is it me or does this sound like a bad rendition of "Demolition Man"?

Fox News is biased.

CNN is biased.

MSNBC is biased.

You get the picture.

When Bush was president, he couldn't even wipe his nose without most of the networks criticizing him while he could do no wrong on Fox. This carried over to Democrats and Republicans in general.

Now the reverse is true.

What I don't think the anti-Bush networks ever managed to do is get the WhiteHouse in a position where they had to respond DIRECTLY to a network and even if they did, they lost.

The WH has, over the last few days, started taking direct jabs at Fox. The only thing this has had the effect of doing so far is getting even more people to tune it and see what all the hubbub's about.

Maybe Obama should hire Glenn Beck as his media czar.

I mean really, when the best response they can come up w/ to video of their main media rep praising one of the biggest mass murderers in history is "I was just kidding" and the equivalent of "They're just a bunch of poo-poo" while FOX shows video after video of officials sticking their feet in their mouths, they've lost that fight.

A tribute to MikeB...

For those who are already aware of MikeB's blog, I wanted to share something.

I told Thirdpower about 8 months ago that I would convert MikeB to a pro-2A supporter within 6 months.

In this endeavor, I have failed on a level hard to measure. I won't stop trying because it's in my nature to attempt to stop the sun from rising, the grass from growing and the wind from blowing, just to see if it's possible.

Basically, I'm a total retard. I believe in the impossible, one small insignificant impossibility at a time.

I have since revised my bluster to state that I believe that I can convert MikeB to a nuetral within 20 years.

I disagree with everything that dribbles out of his keyboard, but I honestly like the guy and would be more than happy to sit down and buy him a beer or fourteen.

The reason is simple.

He allows comments and responds to comments.

For all those who wish to exercise their 1st Amendment Rights by calling him names and demonizing him on a personal level, I won't directly throw you under the bus.

I simply ask that you appreciate the fact that we have access to a true anti and Brady Campaign supporter who has the intestinal fortitude to make his case and back it up as best as he sees fit.

That's worth something in my book.

Let's engage MikeB on a cerebral level and defeat him with his own words/logic.

Calling him unjust names doesn't really help.

Update: looks like my linking problem is still not resolved, so MikeB can be found here...

The Brady Campaign and sheer idiocy, but I repeat myself...

One of my hobbies is shooting and collecting firearms. Another one of my hobbies is scouring the BC website for gold nuggets.

I found one.

"If you are a victim or survivor of gun violence, please see our list of resources so that you can get the appropriate help you need for your circumstances. If you are in immediate danger, please dial 911 or your local emergency number."

If you have the time to pick up a phone, dial 911, give your exact location and situation to the dispatcher and then wait 20 minutes for someone to show up, then you are not in immediate danger.

The hypocrisy is quite delicious.

Don't use a gun to defend yourself. It is better to call some total stranger with a gun and have them defend you.

But even this is a farce since the BC site also quotes Jesus as to what to do if attacked...

"You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you."

Sorry, Paul... I prefer to resist evil people.

If Jesus has a problem with that, then I've got a problem with Jesus.

On a more cerebral level, "eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth" is adressing a REVENGE situation.

Those of us who value our own existence to the point of defending it with lethal force if needed, are talking about that first eye and that first tooth remaining squarely where God put it in the first place.
