Big Government is NOT the Problem!

Poster4

Big Government is NOT the Problem! Your neighbors, your associates, in some cases your relatives are the problem. Dumb Masses encircle you.

We live now in a society so thoroughly marinated in a culture of Government Boondoggle it is impossible to untangle the threads between undistorted markets and Bureaucratic Largesse.

Large swaths of Americans do not hate government, they LOVE government for all the blessings and benefits a contract, grant funding or even just outright freebies can bring. A triple threat, we live now in a government of the boondoggle, by the boondoggle, for the boondoggle that shall never perish from the Earth!

Gone forever are the days when the biggest threat to America was some nebulous “Military/Industrial Complex”. We live now in a time of The Education/Retail Complex; The Public Transportation/Asphalt Complex; The Sewer Treatment/Industrial Pipe Complex; The Agriculture/Farm Subsidy Complex; et. al.

“Red states” and “blue states” do not define the division between those who wish for more government and those who do not.

The division for and against Leviathan Government is more accurately defined by individuals who benefit from government in some obvious direct fashion and individuals who do not.

The list of individuals who benefit from Leviathan Government Largesse is long and endless- from the Mom-and-Pop sign shop who win the lettering contract for shiny new municipal Garbage Trucks to the centralized print facility responsible for the distribution of thousands of Handicapped Parking signs across the nation;from the small businesses who bid to paint city streets with bicycle lanes to corporations who supply high end stainless steel commercial restaurant equipment to Public School Cafeterias; not to mention an entire vehicle manufacturing industry whose sole product is specialized yellow buses to transport every juvenile in modern society from every dusty nook and cranny of the country to and from the soul crushing abattoirs known as “High” Schools or “Junior” High Schools or even “Elementary” Schools.

From coast to coast and sea to shining sea, pick a card, any card, and someone, somewhere bids on the relevant government contract.

Dairy farmers? Check.
Fire Trucks? Check.
Police Patrol Cars? Check.
Traffic Lights? Check.
Traffic Signs? Check.
Desks? Check.
Tables, Chairs? Check and check.
Electronic Conference Equipment? Check.
Pencils, Paper, Pads, Office equipment? CheckCheckCheckCheckCheck.

Tired yet? Remember all this comes BEFORE ANY discussion of “THE FREE STUFF ARMY”

Yes, there remains to enumerate and identify:

Section 8 Housing
Aid to Families with Dependent Children
Earned Income Credit
Electronic Benefit Transfer Cards
Obama Phones
Etc.Etc.Etc.

Former FBI agent, Dan Smoot, succinctly summed up the situation in his broadcast number 649 January 29, 1968:

England was killed by an idea: the idea that the weak, indolent and profligate must be supported by the strong, industrious, and frugal–to the degree that tax consumers will have a living standard comparable to that of taxpayers; the idea that government exists for the purpose of plundering those who work to give the product of their labor to those who do not work. The economic and social cannibalism produced by this communist-socialist idea will destroy any society which adopts it and clings to it as a basic principle–any society.

Sleep well, America, sleep well.

Really folks, can you trust your government?

On April 12th of this year (2013) the FBI Technical Branch produced an in-house
video about the FBI Reference Firearms Collection for their Youtube Channel.
(Yes! The FBI has their own Youtube Channel!)

Here is their YouTube description:

Inside the FBI Reference Firearms Collection

Published on Apr 12, 2013

If every gun tells a story, the FBI’s reference firearms collection could fill
a very, very large book.

The inventory of more than 7,000 firearms—curated over 80 years—contains
just about every make and model, from John Dillinger’s Prohibition-era revolver
to the modern battlefield’s M16, and almost everything in between.

More at: http://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/2013/april/fbi-­gun-collection-firearms-that-help-solve-­crimes

###############################################################

These technicians are presumably among the top firearms experts in the country.

They examine evidence, they testify in court, they produce evidentiary
reports for use in cases big and small across the country; they are, in short,
the crème de la crème of government firearms bureaucrats.

So how did they manage to produce a video with not one, but two examples of the
most miserable and incompetent weapons manipulation possible?

Any individual who fondled a pistol in a gunshop with the obvious negligence exhibited
in this FBI video would be severely reprimanded on the spot if not tossed out on his ear.

And I have yet to see any Smithsonian Firearms Technician mishandle any weapon
on any History Channel Documentary.

So who are these guys who have so much responsibility and publicly display such
complete insouciance when they brag about their job?

Even the bank robber pictured in the video has the discipline to keep his finger off
the trigger of the weapon he uses to commit his crime.

Watch the complete video for yourself (the fun starts at about 4:28):

Benghazi- Where Are The Romney Officers?

CoastGuard2

Few rules are more inviolate in Military Tradition than “no soldier left behind”.

We recover the wounded and honor the fallen and remember the missing.

From Thermopylae to King Henry to Churchill to Eisenhower to Vietnam foot soldiers trust they will be supported by any means necessary.

Until Benghazi.

In 2012 Mitt Romney ran for President with the public support of many Top Level US Military Officers.

Unlike their Swift Boat counterparts in the 2004 Presidential Campaign, in this season of American history every one of the Romney Officer Corps has been publicly silent and AWOL on the topic of Benghazi.

Here are the names of the Officers who auditioned for their jobs, cashed the paychecks and now refuse to do necessary work to avenge the deaths of Medal of Honor Candidates Glen Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods.

If you know any of these guys, call them.

Remind them this is still America.

An America they swore to preserve, protect and defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Reblog: Liberty Sphere Midnight Musings

In case you missed them, about a year ago The Welshman began a series of lengthy meditations on
the current State Of The Union.

They are now indexed in one location so readers can reflect on the prescience of his thoughts,some
of which resonate even today.

Boston: ARE YOU STUPID??????

KenmoreSq

Really Boston? An entire city suspends an ENTIRE DAY of economic activity so a small Army of Police can take their sweet time looking for ONE PERSON?

It is not like you all just got up to go to the beach for the day.

Noooo, you all cowered behind your locked doors like some weird Zombie Apocalypse was underway.

What? You don’t have locks on your doors? Well, turn on the TV, maybe a bulletin will instruct you how to lean a chair up against the knob so perpetrators armed with EXPLOSIVES can not get in!

That will solve everything!

Jumping Jimney Cricket! Even snow storms have not crippled the entire city for an entire day!

A day of shame that will live in infamy!

The Great Beantown Hysterical Panic Attack!

In the London Blitz of 1940 Winston Churchill’s Government demonstrated to the world how to prevail over brutal adversity while under attack from hundreds of pounds of aerial bombs on a nightly basis with a firm resolve to continue the conduct of ordinary daily business.

In the Million Moron Marathon of 2013 ObamaNation’s Government demonstrated to the world how easy it was for two vandals to inflict millions of dollars in economic damage to an entire city with nothing more than ordinary kitchen cookware!

What fools these Bolshevik Liberals be! To what low estate have they brought the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave?

London Blitz Churchill 1940:

Nuclear Suitcase Bomb 101

SuitcaseBombB

The venerable James Burke cut quite a swath through the intellectual history community circa 1978 with his thesis on the connection between widely separated innovations and their collective impact on Society.

Long before “preppers” and “survivalists” and “SHTF types”, Mr. Burke explained the thin veneer of Civilization in terms everyone could understand.

One of his eloquent pithy soliloquies is now available for your perusal courtesy of NC Gun Guy.

In the post Cold War era it is truly said when nuclear devices are outlawed only outlaws will have nuclear devices.

A few repairable examples of the relic described in the video are bound to be floating around somewhere and well within the budget of say, a George Soros, Bill Gates, Ross Perot or even some International cabal of terrorists- Taliban, Al Quaeda, North Korea or Iran to acquire, possess, transport, and deploy.

While I am sure the video example is a mock up or at best a trainer, the concept boggles the mind.

So while the Neville Chamberlains among us fret about new and better ways to visit devastation on the great unwashed masses with some fancy pants gun control restrictions, the clock ticks down on this neutered Society of ours.

Sleep well.

RINO FUDD Alert: Professor Edward J Erler

NC Gun Guy offers new video of a Professor Edward J.Erler who seems blissfully unaware of the current state of United States gun laws even as he lectures an audience at the Hillsdale College Kirby Center on the nature and purpose of the 2nd Amendment.

While his rhetoric does not exactly move into the malignant fraud of Professor Michael Bellesiles (at least not in this lecture) he will definitely never be confused with a modern day pulpit pounding Patrick Henry screaming “Give me Liberty or give me Death!”

He is, in fact, exactly the kind of cryto covert passive aggressive Milquetoast RINO Republican FUDD who has brought this Republic to its knees under the century old Progressive assault he purports to oppose.

While he claims to support the 2nd Amendment his narcoleptic language and thought gently nudge the audience into a morass of administrative state edicts and restrictions.

First comes the astounding claim fully automatic weapons have been illegal since the 1930s.

A.(Weapons were taxed, but legal–click here)
B.(13 year old Katelyn Francis shoots full auto at a 3 gun match CLICK HERE)

In addition, the good Doctor also seems to believe the venerable WWII M1 Carbine should be classified as an “assault rifle” ( a role for which it was never designed), is remarkably comfortable with the notion weapons should be banned from any areas Leviathan Government deems “sensitive”, is dismissive of the role of the local Sheriff as a Constitutional bulwark, and finally, is far too comfortable with the idea of banning entire categories of weapons because they are somehow unusual or dangerous.

The number of times Dr. Erler uses the term “assault rifle” in the first few minutes of his talk would make the most devoted acolyte’s head spin. He is completely unaware of the NSSF list of rifle industry wide terms to include Modern Sport Rifle (MSR), Modular Component Rifle (MCR), Sport Utility Rifle (SUR) or Modular Precision Rifle (MPR). CLICK LINK HERE

So clearly this is not a man who should be given a leadership role defending the Bill of Rights.

The guy is not a lawyer and he is certainly not familiar with the contemporary gun rights environment.

In fact, his only credentials appear to be an academic PhD in Political Science.

Has this fine Academic EVER shot NRA Bullseye? Joined IDPA? IPSC? Gone to Camp Perry? Plinked for rats at the local dump? Gone hunting? Shot trap or skeet? Cowboy Action Shooting? Civil War Reenactment? World War II Reenactment? Is he familiar with Kim Rhode? John Ross? Thunder Ranch? Jeff Cooper?

Can he name any activity outside the Ivory Tower of Academia directly involved with active use of a firearm?

If all these activities and ideas and people are alien to him he has no place at the top of the 2nd Amendment food chain.

We, the people, do not need any more Ann Coulters or Karl Roves or Heritage Foundations or Cato Institutes or even Hillsdale Colleges controlling the narrative or dialogue about who will best lead us out of the wilderness of crippling Progressive Politics.

Enough already.

Return, sir, to your cloistered halls and leave the dirty work to those of us who suffer most severely from the oppression of totalitarian Federalism.
