Attribute to L. Neil Smith's The Libertarian Enterprise
We're starting this off with a new author, Mama liberty. Ok, she's not new, in fact, she's been my go-to Gal for a long time. [Link]. Mama is usually a pretty up-beat lady, but this one has echoes of my bad days. It's called "Nobody and Everybody".
More and more I'm hearing less and less from people who used to be serious about freedom, especially freedom from the bogus "authority" of non-voluntary government. More and more of what I read in the forums and blogs tells me that these people are tired of the fight, burned out in their efforts to communicate. They either give up the fight or just go silent.
So many of the freedom oriented blogs I visit have become little more than a platform for complaints about government. Lots of outrage and condemnation, but little offering of any reasonable counter measures except "letters to congressmen," lawsuits and the usual political activities we've been trying for so long —even when it is quite clear that they have little or no hope of any real change from such things. There are exceptions, but most of them still seem to cling to the "constitution" and the "bill of rights" as magic bullets that will set everything right if people would just accept those chains. And this, of course, means that they still believe that non-voluntary government, one way or another, has that authority.
So, more and more often, people I talk to are wondering if there are any others in the world who think like they do—or even close. Some are convinced that "nobody" really wants freedom, and that "everybody" is too stupid to see the truth, prepare reasonably or ever take personal responsibility for themselves. I am tempted to indulge in that thought pattern sometimes myself, but I truly think there are a great many people in our world and communities who might well be our allies, if we only knew them.
And the worst part of what she says? She's correct—I DO often think most people out there have given up. Too many people actually believe the government is good overall, there's just "a few bad apples" in it. You're wrong. In fact, the opposite is true—Overall, the government is evil, with just the occasional good apple in there. It's not true. Government is a tyranny over minorities, and the smallest (and most numerous) minority is the individual.
I REALLY wish a Krogers was around here. Why? Because they are basically ignoring the Morons Demand Surrender... er, Moms Demand Action, Bloomberg's false-flag "grass-roots" movement. [Link]
According to a new interview with Kroger CFO Michael Schlotman, the grocery store chain is not about to give in to the demands of Bloomberg-funded Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. The group turned their attention to Kroger in August of last year, insisting that the store stop letting customers openly carry firearms on the premises. Appearing on CNBC's Squawk Box, Schlotman said the store would continue to abide by state laws.
"If the local gun laws are to allow open carry," Schlotman said, "we'll certainly allow customers to do that based on what the local laws are. We don't believe it's up to us to legislate what the local gun control laws should be. It's up to the local legislators to decide to do that. So we follow local laws, we ask our customers to be respectful to the other people they are shopping with. And we really haven't had any issues inside our stores as a result of that."
While it's gratifying to see a corporate chain stand up the pressure from the left, the fight for "gun sense" in America is far from over. Moms Demand Action, led by activist Shannon Watts, has proven to be a powerful force in the gun control debate. A former PR executive for Monsanto, Watts brought her public relations experience to the fight for gun control after the horrific shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. Today, MDA boasts more than 200,000 members and—thanks to a strategic partnership with Michael Bloomberg—millions of dollars in funding. And they have used that support system to bring legal, political, and social pressure for stricter gun laws.
Stand strong against the scum, Krogers.
Now the USPS is doing surveillance runs on the American people, ala the NSA. [Link].
The "Mile High" state might have bee one of the first to legalize marijuana, but voters in the western state know for a fact they didn't sign up to be monitored illegally by USPS surveillance cameras. Even though it was never authorized it looks like the state decided they were going to do it anyway.
Which is why when the local Fox affiliate discovered a "spy camera" sitting outside of a Golden post office they decided they needed to put everyone on alert.
Infowars reports on what happened next. Make your own judgements if anything suspicious was going on.
A face and license plate scanning camera was torn from the ground outside a Colorado post office this week less than one hour after being discovered by local reporters.
The camera, run by the United State Postal Inspection Service, the postal service's law enforcement unit, was hidden inside a utilities box near the exit of the Golden Post Office.
Now you vill be vatched at ze Post Office, Ja!
Oh, have I said recently that supporting gun control hurts women, minorities, the elderly, and the handicapped? Well, it does! As this "Well Armed American" clearly shows. In fact, in this case, it hurts a handicapped AND a minority male.
Good thing guns protect the handicapped too. When a man in a wheelchair and his friend got into an argument with three others, they retreated into their home to ensure violence didn't erupt from the encounter.
The three men must have been itching for a fight, because after the two men locked themselves in their apartment, they kicked the door down to continue the fight.
That's when the man in the wheelchair sprung into action.
A Tulsa News network wrote on the shooting:
Police are investigating a double shooting during a home invasion.
It's pretty obvious if the man in the wheelchair didn't have a gun things could have been much worse for the two.
Imagine what would have happened if three men unleashed their violence on a man who couldn't move his legs. The outcome would likely be quite rough.
That's exactly why his ownership of a hand gun was the right and prudent thing to pursue.
Surely his friend agrees, don't you think?
We're told the door had been kicked in at the Suzanne Apartments near 11th and Mingo about 12:35 a.m. Thursday.
"We did find two males that were deceased apparently shot inside the apartment," Tulsa Police Sergeant Gillian Phippen said.
KRMG has now learned the names of the two men are Kejuan Shields and Demario Harris. Another man, Tymalk Love, jumped out of the window and ran away.
Police believe Shields, Harris and Love got into an argument outside of the apartment. The resident and a friend went inside the apartment and locked the door.
Investigators believe shortly after that, Shields, Harris and Love broke into the apartment and assaulted the resident's friend.
The resident, who is in a wheelchair, grabbed his pistol as his friend was being assaulted and shot Shields and Harris, according to police.
The wheelchair bound resident and his friend were interviewed and released. The investigation is ongoing.
Damn good job, Sir. And some fine shooting, too! Oh, wait! If the lying Victim Disarmers were correct, I'd be opposing letting this young wheelchair-bound black man have a gun. But then, I'm not Michael Bloomberg.
Well, this particular "Well Armed American" is a retired cop, but it's STILL impressive that he did so. [Link].
A civilian risked his life to save a man who was being attacked by a crazy wielding a knife in Salt Lake City last week. The fact that he has a permit to conceal and carry certainly didn't hurt.
The civilian is a retired police officer and felt compelled to get involved.
The civilian, who asked to be identified only as 'Nick' said, "I was just driving in my car on North Temple, (when) I saw a guy pull a knife on another guy, a fight ensued, the guy with the knife was swinging it several times at the unarmed person," said Nick.
Nick's training and his heart responded. He went into action and moved in to stop the altercation and pull his gun on the suspect.
Was that worth reading?
