Support for gun control fading

Good news ladies and gentlemen.  The Independent Journal Review posted an article detailing how Americans are Getting Tired of Gun Control Pushes.

Support for more gun control is waning across all political parties, including liberals and democrats.  This should be common sense, gun control does not reduce violent crime. Criminals do not care about laws. Society should take the people who mental problems and ensure they receive help.

Democrats (from 79% to 71%)
Liberals (from 75% to 67%)
Women (from 69% 55%)
Republicans (from 39% to 29%)

If democrats and liberals want to reduce violent crime:

1. Open community colleges in low income housing areas. Make attendance mandatory for anyone living in public housing. Provide people on welfare with a clear path out of poverty.  Democrats however would rather keep people in poverty than provide them with a path out of poverty.  As long as people are poor and dependent on the government, they will continue to vote democrat.

When people lose hope of bettering themselves, they figure they have nothing to lose.  So what if they go out in a rain of gunfire, at least they get their name in the news.

We have to break the cycle of families spending generations in the welfare line.

2. Make mental health services free to the public, regardless of income levels. We as a society need to remove the stigma from mental health. If someone has a problem, society as a whole needs to address said problem.

In a capitalist society we are taught we either sink or swim.  You either work and provide for yourself, or you sink into poverty.

Mental illness and poverty are like oil and water, they do not go well with each other.  Those who need the help the most are unable to afford it.

3. End school bullying. Establish a national awareness program to end bullying.

The path is clear, we either address mental health and poverty, or we continue to deal with shootings like Sandy hook and Aurora Colorado.

The war on guns is pretty much over, except the crying that is.

Illegal immigration nail in the coffin for obama

This flood of illegal immigrants will be the final nail in the coffin for obama. Even the most rabid obama supports are starting the see his true agenda.  Obama will go down as the worst president in history. Instead of bringing the nation together, he drove a steel wedge through the heart of America.

Everyday working people are being thrown to the wolves while illegals are flooding this nation and overwhelming resources.

You think the economy is bad now? Just wait until those illegals are granted work visas. Those thousands of illegals crossing the border everyday will start looking for work. It is just a matter of time before human rights groups call on the U.S. government to start granting work visas. We do not expect the tens of thousands of illegals to sign up on welfare do we? If they are here they can work and support themselves, right?

High school senior expelled for having knife in car

There is a recent news article that is causing a stir.  It seems a young man was kicked out of school and spent 13 days in jail for having a knife in his car.

This is more than just a young man, he has completed an EMT training program. The knife was found in an EMT medical vest, which was locked in the trunk of his car.

I remember when carrying a pocket knife in school was no big deal. Especially if you were taking wood working class. Just do not take the knife out in school. There were a few times when boys had their knife out cleaning under their finger nails, or cutting on a stick, teacher walk by, say put your knife away, no big deal.

Society is turning boys into sissies.

How can we take pocket knives away from boys, or expel them from school for having a knife, but expect those same boys to fight in wars?

How can be train our boys that violence is bad, but expect those same boys to kill the enemy when they are grown?

Boys will be boys. They need to have a knife, they need to own a gun, they need to fight and learn to settle their differences without shooting each other. Because those boys will be our future leaders, soldiers and law makers.

Do you want a bunch of sissies fighting the next war, or do you want men? Boys and sissies do not win wars, men win wars.

Society has a whole needs to reconsider the path we are going down. This politically correct and zero tolerance stuff is going to do more harm than good.

Crimea votes to join Russia

With about half the votes counted so far the vote to return Crimea to Russia is a landslide with around 93% of the voters voting to join Russia.

This is a vote by the people and for the people.  The problem is, people such as president Obama and organizations such as the European Union are calling the vote illegal. How can the will of the people be illegal? Comments by people such as president obama and john McCain show how much our own government cares about the will of the people.

International observes who observe elections noted that the elections are going well and there are no signs of voter intimidation.

Senator John McCain called for “a fundamental re-assessment” of the United States’ relationship with Russian Vladimir Putin. The people of Crimea have spoken, they wish to return to Russia. That is Democracy in its purest form, and McCain is mad?

John Kerry has mentioned sanctions against Russia for this Crimea situation. Why would Kerry want to have sanctions against Russia when this is the will of the people?

There is a problem there.

The problem is not Putin or Crimea.

The problem is people such as Senator John McCain, Kerry and president Obama not respecting the will of the people.

We really need to ask ourselves, why do we have people like McCain and Obama in elected offices?

Austin cop gets a call about people with guns

Come and take It Texas, Austin division is doing their monthly walk, when someone calls the cops to report people with guns. the caller said the people with the guns were being nice. Which is a thumbs up to the caller.

From the video, the citizens are in Subway ordering food when the cop shows up. Cop talks to the citizens, cop talks to Subway employees, everything goes better than expected.

Believe it or not, in Texas citizens have the right to carry a long arm in public. But here lately certain police departments have been trying to make political statements but harassing people who are exercising their rights.  One such incident was in Beaumont Texas were a man was arrested for carrying an AR-15.

If the people do not use their rights, those rights are slowly taken away. With gun hating liberals trying to take our gun rights away we need more people to take a stand.

At 9 minutes into the video there is a discussion about the Texas Department of Public Safety is trying to use policy to override stay law. It will to be interesting to see how this works out in the courts if Texas DPS arrest people for exercising their rights.

I applaud the Austin police officer who responded to the call in the video. You set a wonderful example for others to follow.

Connecticut Molon labe

When Xerxes demanded the Spartans surrender their weapons, King Leonidas said Molon labe (translated: come and take them).

In the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting Connecticut gun hating liberal legislators passed a restrictive law demanding certain types of weapons be registered.

Numbers show the law has been pretty much ignored. Now the ball is in the court of the Connecticut lawmakers.

Faced with widespread rebellion the people and the state have one of two choices:

  • Turn law abiding citizens how have decided to ignore an unjust law into criminals
  • Repeal the law
  • Law enforcement refuse to enforce an unjust law. “Just following orders” is no excuse to blindly enforce bad laws.

Always remember the Nazis who sent millions of Jews to the gas chambers were just following orders. When those soldiers were put on trial at Nuremberg, they were found guilty of war crimes. “Just following orders” is no excuse to commit crimes against the people.

The government spoke, the people chose the ignore. The next step is left up to the government.

Socialist need to listen up.  Free people did not roll over and play dead in 1776, nor shall we do so now.

China the new face of global domination

Lets talk about history for a couple of minutes, then let’s move onto the heart of this article.  One of the main reasons Germany was defeated in WW II was the United States and Russia produced more tanks, planes, ships and guns than Germany. We had the resources where Germany did not.

World War II boiled down to numbers. Where Germany could only produce a certain amount of tanks, trucks, planes, and lacked raw materials such as oil and iron deposits, the United States and Russia had no such limitations.

For 35 – 40 years after World War II, or until the late 1970s and early 1980s the United States was the worlds production powerhouse. We made everything from toys to Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles. The economy was strong, there was a thriving middle class who could afford to buy a home, buy a car or truck or both, have a family, times were good.

Then along came corporate greed and free trade. Wall street not satisfied with the profits they were making decided to move the factories to China, exploit low wage workers, then close the factories here in the states which as led to the death of the middle class.

Judge Lisa Millard should be removed from office

Judge Lisa Millard sentenced Clifford Hall 6 months in in jail for a crime he did not commit.

It seems that his child support payments were modified without his knowledge, which violates the due process clause of the U.S. constitution. The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees that the government can not take a persons property or liberty without a chance to present their own evidence in a court of law.

Judge Lisa Millard should be removed from office and prohibited from every holding a public office, or any office that has authority over the people. Judge Lisa Millard along with the Harris county child support office is a perfect example of how dads are being driven into child support induced poverty.

Now that Clifford Hall is in jail how is he supposed to pay his child support?  Rather that being current on his child support, he is going to leave jail 6 months in the rear and with no job.  How is that justice?

Child support is not about taking care of the child. The current system is designed to do one thing, that is to punish the non-custodial parent, which is usually the father. Judge Lisa Millard and her decision to throw Clifford Hall in jail for 6 month is a perfect example of a system that is out of control.

The child support system in Texas needs to be reformed.  The first step to reigning in an out of control system is to remove judges like Lisa Millard from office.  Once removed from office make her an example by prohibiting her from practicing law in Texas, and prohibit her from holding any public office.  Her sentence of Clifford Hall is nothing more than abuse of power.

How is being current on your child support a crime?  It is not.

Chances are the only reason why Clifford Hall is in jail is because he is black.  I hate to say that, but it is my honest opinion.  It is strange how a white woman throws a black man in jail for paying his child support.

Democrats ask Bloomberg to give up on gun control

There comes a time when you say enough is enough, and that time has come with ex-mayor Michael Bloomberg.

First he was forced out of office by term limits, and now high ranking democrats in Washington D.C. are asking bloomberg to tone down his anti-gun rhetoric.

Lets be honest, bloomberg turned New York into a laughing stock with his petty wars on life choices. Whether it is smoking, or large sugary drinks, people should have a right to pick their poison.  People should have the right to live the lifestyle they wish.  If a mayor wants to ban large soft drinks, what about stuff like beer, bacon and whiskey?

Now it seems ex-mayor bloomberg is a little too far left even for the lefties,

From an article on Mediaite.com,

Bloomberg had previously appeared to be “single issue focused on guns at the risk of jeopardizing Senate for Democrats.” TIME Magazine reporter Mark Halperin confirmed that Bloomberg not only resisted pressure from the two highest ranking Democrats in the Senate, but also former President Bill Clinton, who asked Bloomberg to temper his enthusiasm for attacking politicians who oppose stricter gun laws if those politicians happen to be Democrats.

I other words, if you push gun control chances are you are going to lose the 2014 elections.  Looks to me like democrats are running scared.

It is clear obama lied to the people about healthcare reform. With the individual mandate, cancelled policies and rate hikes, democrats have a lot of explaining to do before the elections in November 2014.  Obama said our healthcare would cost about as much as a cell phone bill, and the gullible people believed the lies.  Add gun control to the mix and it looks like democrats risk losing a lot of seats.

The writing is on the wall,  Bloombergs end goal is confiscation, which is already happening in New york city.  Nothing good can come from a political who fears an armed civilian population.

Bloomberg has been a thorn in the side of the democrat party with his draconian gun laws.  Conservative websites are having a field day with bloomberg and his extreme views on smoking, calories, large drinks and gun control.  Add to the obsessive control disorder the lies that obama told during his election about healthcare, and people are getting fed up with democrats.

One of the best things that can happen to this nation is for Michael Bloomberg and the democrats to fade away into obscurity.

Beaumont Texas man arrested for carrying rifle

KBMT news is reporting Beaumont police arrested a man for lawfully carrying a rifle. The incident happening in Parkdale Mall in Beaumont Texas.  It is reported that he has a store in the mall where he sells firearm accessories, but no actual firearms are sold there.  He was allowed to have the rifle at the store for demonstration purposes.  While walking to the store, with the AR-15 slung over his back, several people called the police.  The police responded and arrested the man.

I never thought I would see the day when a police force in southeast Texas did not support gun rights.  The article says the man was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. Chances are the guy will be charged under Section 42.01 of the Texas Penal Code, which states,

Sec. 42.01. DISORDERLY CONDUCT. (8) displays a firearm or other deadly weapon in a public place in a manner calculated to alarm;

Why major media dropped Arapaho school shooting

On December 13, 2013 Karl Pierson walked into Arapaho high school, shot one student and then killed himself.

Usually this would have been major news for weeks, with anti-gun advocates coming out of the woodwork like roaches. There should have been renewed calls for gun control with president Obama addressing the nation for the need for tighter restrictions and background checks.

So what makes this school shooting different?

The shooter used a shotgun.

The shooter legally bought the firearm.

Shooter was left leaning communist democrat

A good guy with a gun put a quick end to the violence.

Iceland jails financial terrorist

Why don’t more nations follow the example set by Iceland and throw corrupt bankers (financial terrorist) in prison?

I did not know it until I watched this video, but the Federal Reserve protects bankers from certain types of criminal prosecution.

If there are no punishments for breaking the law, what is the deterrent? If bankers can make loans to companies they know are going to fail, then buy the company for pennies on the dollar, what is stopping them from rigging the market?

The more I learn about American banks and the federal reserve, the more I understand how rigged the system truly is. If you want the honest truth, the average working class family has no chance against the banks who can print money out of thin air.

Consider this, after the housing crash in 2008, the federal reserve has been printing around $85 billion a month in free money. Then using that money to buy mortgages. Before long the federal reserve will be the largest property owner in the United States.

Should Sandy Hook information be released to the public

Well, it seems the investigation into the Sandy Hook shooting is going nowhere. There is no motive, there is nothing but speculation.Kevin Felts blogger and survivalist

To make matters worse Stephen Sedensky III who is the lead investigator for the State’s Attorney has gone to court to fight the release of 911 tapes. It is claimed the 911 tapes are not being released to protect victims privacy, and the protect the identify of the callers from conspiracy theorist.

Personally, I think the upper class of the area does not want to face that this kind of violence could happen to them. Shootings like this only happen in the ghetto,,,, right?

While I respect a persons right to privacy, the people doing the investigating are on the public payroll. And since they are paid by the public, should the public have a right to know what the investigators found?

If the shooter had lived, and if this case had gone to trial, would the people still be making these same arguments? Or would there be a closed trial and a gag order issued?

Where does stuff like this happen? Not in poor areas.

The wealth, privilege and money are acting like a shield to protect the Sandy Hook community.

If this shooting had happened in a poor community, the 911 tapes would have probably been in youtube before the bodies were cold.

Thoughts on the debt ceiling

There was a sci-fi movie back in the 1970s where the united states was attacked by nuclear super powers. Russia and China teamed up, combined their nuclear weapons, launched an attacked and destroyed the United States.

The side effect was with all of those nuclear bombs going off in one area, the earth was knocked off its axis.

The united states has a monopoly on war. Besides nuclear war, there is no other nation that can stand up to us.

One way to bring the US to its knees is through economic collapse. This is the one thing our out of control greed will help accomplish.

This debt ceiling and default stuff might make the world wonder if they would be better off without us.

What other nation flies drone strikes into other nations?

What nation kidnaps people?

What nation works to overthrow foreign governments?

What nation pays its workers minimum wage, then tells them to sign up for welfare?

Maybe the world would be better off without the United States leading the way?

The Zimmerman Verdict

The root issue of the Zimmerman case is the peoples ability to protect not only their community, but also themselves.

Community had a rash of crime.

Community organizes watch program.

Community watch member sees suspicious person walking streets at night.

Suspicious person attacks community watch member.

Community watch member shoots and kills suspicious person in self-defense.

There is no racism in what happened.

But protesting the verdict, people are saying we should not have the right to protect our community, nor should we have the right to protect ourselves.

In other words, protestors are saying we should stay in our homes why crime runs rampant on our streets.

Martin and Zimmerman were at the wrong place and at the wrong time. But just because Zimmerman was following Martin, that did not give Martin the right to attack Zimmerman.

There is no reason to protest this verdict. To protest the verdict is to protest our ability to be safe in our community and in our person.
