There’s a real simple way for those in the gun rights community who wish this issue to go away to get those of us who keep bringing it up to stop: Provide credible evidence — not anecdotes and platitudes, but something that can be independently validated — that refutes and puts to rest the concerns. If injecting millions of anti-gun voters dependent on Democrat “entitlements” into the electorate will not result in an unbeatable “progressive” super-majority, having a disastrous effect on politicians elected, laws passed, judges confirmed, and decisions upheld, all they need do is share with us how they know that.
Good on David for not dropping this issue. I’ve tried to be diligent as well. But I’m not even willing to put it in terms of an “unbeatable “progressive” super-majority” (although that’s what it will be). No, I’m not willing to accept a single immigrant unless it’s in the best interest of the country. Immigration shouldn’t be decided based on compassion – this conflates state with church (it is the duty of the state to administer justice, not compassion, and much of the trouble in our progressive system comes from the confusion of a state trying to administer both justice and compassion at the same time, which cannot be done). As to anyone bringing forward evidence that we won’t be inundated with an unbeatable “progressive” super-majority, they won’t because they can’t.
And come home to roost they some day most assuredly will. Our nation’s friendly creditors are not going to eternally continue to offer us a bottomless credit card, and indeed, when the suspension of disbelief in our ability to ever pay off the debt is no longer sustainable for even the most incurable optimists, Americans will face a darkness like we have never known.
In that time of rioting, looting, starvation, and disease–all on a scale too massive for most Americans to even imagine, it will be up to private citizens to secure their lives and liberty–and their families’. And if DeLauro has her way, those private citizens will have handed the best means of providing that security over–for two-thousand now valueless dollars.
Read this quote again, and then read it again once a day for the next year. Kurt has issued salient warnings as to the future of our system (something that cannot go on forever won’t) and what it will take to secure yourselves and your families. And Kurt has pointed out evil men and women who would prevent you from securing your families. Don’t listen to them, don’t heed their counsel, they mean you harm rather than good. God wants you to defend yourself.
Via Mike Vanderboegh, women still being defenestrated from the Marine Corps infantry officer course. Of course they are. I talked to a Marine Corps officer last week, and he pointed out something to me that most of you will never hear. Most (it sounded like all, but I’m hedging my bets here) of the women who have attempted the infantry officer course at Quantico were diagnosed with pelvic fractures. Of course they were. Because in case you weren’t watching when you grew up, men and women are created differently.
From MackH, this, with Mack commenting:
“A combination of poor infrastructure development, Luddite hatred of power generation, slavish prioritization of dubious ecological initiatives over agricultural realities, and a general religious taboo against desalinization plants are all overlapping each other in a multi-dimensional Venn Diagram of Horror, and nobody in the state government apparently wants to tell the radical ecologists that it’s time to start building more dams and reservoirs. But the state government can tell people to cut their water intake by 25%, and by gum they will do precisely that. Welcome to California: Lake of Fire of their own making.”
Yes, good point. You can cry out to God and believe in His Son and He will save you now and in eternity. But He doesn’t undo the affects of our earthly choices in time. He forces us to learn from them and praise Him anyway. For the poor people of California, I don’t hate you, and I don’t ridicule you. I pity you, whether it has to do with water or gun control. The reality the collectivists have created is awful. Welcome to dystopia. I wish I could help you, but it seems to me the best option for you is to leave California.
Grocery theft? Hey, call out the SWAT team. BB gun threat? Hey, call out the SWAT team. Methinks this is a little silly.
I have a right to worry about guns going off when I don’t want them to. Yes, you do. But you don’t have a right to affect my life because of your worries.
He should have shot the alligator when it was perpetrating its evil, but since he apparently didn’t have a gun with him, I have a suggestion. Shoot the damn alligator. And start carrying a gun.
