There is a constant danger threatening one of the most fundamental principles in the US. This danger is masked by noble intentions, paraded as if proven effective, and instilled in many as a truth so clear and obvious that anyone who dares to speak against it is treated as a heretic. This danger is minority rights. Even though we have seen throughout history that individualism has been the most effective way to ensure equal rights and social mobility, people still find collectivism appealing. Aristocracy, caste, and even slavery have been virtually removed from societies solely by the principle that every man is created equal and owning himself, i.e. Individualism. The reasons why these principles are proven should be reiterated again and again to make certain we never lose these freedoms.
The Fair Pay Act is being proposed to attempt to eliminate pay differences based on discrimination. There is no dispute that…
I recently learned something about American history that I didn’t know. The Battle at Lexington and Concord was because of imposed British disarmament of the local militia. Seems The American War of Independence began on April 19, 1775, when 700 Redcoats under the command of Major John Pitcairn left Boston to seize American arms at Lexington and Concord. (Source).
Senator Feinstein has been very adamant that she “doesn’t want to take our guns” but look at what her home state is proposing. Complete seizure of all registered assault weapons, which they are aware of due to registration. This proves that they do in fact, want our guns. Even though I don’t live in California, this scares me. We have to be ever vigilant. If California wins this, other states will become emboldened and attempt such draconian measures. A 500 round limit…I shoot that on a good range day. Or I did, before 5.56 became unobtanium.
Please contact your Congressmen. Lets fight this, and keep the Republic alive. None of us want to fight for our God-given rights, but if this country doesn’t change course, it may become necessary. If we lose this battle on the Hill, we may have to carry it to the streets.
DHS has bought another 21.6 million rounds of HP .40 for “training.” Brings total to 1.6 billion rounds purchased in the past 10 months. No wonder I can’t find any.
NRA chief seems confident that Congress will not pass any firearm/magazine legislation this session. We can only pray. Not really, call your Congressman and keep up the pressure. Be diligent.
Daren Junesco wrote a post over at American Thinker dealing with Leon Panetta’s reveal yesterday at the Benghazi hearing that President Obama seemed nonchalant about American citizens dying. This travesty is one of the worst examples of incompetence in my lifetime. I hope the few politicians that are keeping pressure on the administration continue to do so. Might be a good idea to let them know that it is appreciated.
I swore when I started this blog that I would be diligent about posting regularly. My last post was Jan 15th, and I failed miserably. I got lazy. I would think of a topic and say to myself, “Self, I’m busy right now, but I will post about that later.” Later became hours, which became days, which has become weeks. That has to stop, for more reason than one. Blogging is an outlet for my rage at the current circumstances in our country. It allows me to vent the frustration that I feel at the apathy of our population. This brings me to the other aspect that I noticed. WE as a free people HAVE to be diligent in the protection of our freedoms. Like a lobster in a pot, as long as there is no sudden jump in temperature, we get comfortable and complacent. We say, “Well, that isn’t such a big deal and it doesn’t affect me, so I’m not going to bother standing against it.” As the old adage goes, if you give an inch, a mile will be taken. To quote John Phillip Curran, “t is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt.”
We have to be on guard against the enemies of freedom, we must be like sheepdogs and keep the wolves at bay. Check out this video below from Nutnfancy:
