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.

Blood Dance In North Carolina

QuailBooks2

From Raleigh Constituent comes news of an evening Blood Dance at a popular local Bolshevik hangout– Quail Ridge Bookstore in downtown Raleigh.

On the daïs will be all the usual suspects: North Carolina Congressional Gungrabber David Price, Local Media Apparatchik David Crabtree and Psychiatric Humanist Dr. Assad Meymandi.

They assemble to discuss the UPSWING ???? in violence and mass shooting.

Naturally, John Lott et. al have not been invited or given a seat at the discussion table because this is a topic ONLY the Bolshevik ruling class understands or can discuss!

Pass the word……

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?

Dumb Mayors and Gun Confiscation

Bloomberg's Dangerous Gun Advertisement

Bloomberg’s Dangerous Gun Advertisement

BOOM! Mayor Bloomberg’s Gun Control Advertising Campaign bombs with the most irresponsible example of firearm handling possible.

To err is human, to really foul things up acquire a computer and if you seek to ruin things beyond all repair call a Politician. Especially an outfit like Mayors For Gun Confiscation, because they make their own case for incompetent leadership even as they demand more compliance with their ridiculous edicts.

Today’s episode involves the release of two ostensibly passionate pleas for more stringent regulation delivered by an actor who has probably never handled or fired a firearm in his life. The errors are so off-the-wall egregious as to be almost beyond the ability of rational men to catalog.

Excerpt:

Mr. Bloomberg’s organization, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, produced two ads featuring a man holding a shotgun, wearing plaid flannel with a camouflage cap and sitting on the tailgate of a pickup truck. While a child swings on a tire in the background, the man says, “I support comprehensive background checks so criminals and the dangerously mentally ill can’t buy guns.”

The ad does not specify if the man is an actor, but he violates all three gun safety rules taught by the National Rifle Association (NRA).

Free lance wildcat posters have already appeared on discussion forums:

And, of course, here at JohnJacobH the topic of actors with good trigger discipline and muzzle awareness has been covered recently with the example of young child actor Bill Mumy who handled firearms expertly at the age of seven back in 1961:

Or senior actor Tom Selleck, who has been unable to set a good example of proper weapon manipulation up to the age of forty something.

Tango Fox 1 Comma 2nd Amendment

Back in the prelapsarian days when Free Republic was an active vibrant website for Conservative thought and action, many vigorous 2nd Amendment debates were conducted amongst highly gifted Freepers.

Tango Fox contributed above and beyond the call of duty with his detailed analysis of the history and origin of the 2nd Amendment. In one of my early posts I archived his work in a text format,CLICK LINK HERE but as the Free Republic Archives slowly disappear down the memory hole, important work should be preserved in as many ways as possible.

He detailed the one comma 2nd Amendment with a rich tapestry of documentation and commentary.

So, today, please enjoy and save these screen shots from the Pleistocene days of the World Wide Web.

Tango Fox, you are missed and your work is not forgotten.
