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?

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.

Tank Killer 101

TankKillerC

RUN! RUN AWAY!

RUN! RUN AWAY!

From the Syrian resistance comes this graphic affirmation of the vulnerability of tanks.

Your drill Sargent always told you a stationary tank is a dead tank.

Even worse is a stationary tank without boots-on-the-ground infantry to protect it.

A little pluck, a little luck, a little skill and BOOM! it is gone!

In the 1956 Hungarian Revolution teenagers placed inverted cast iron frying pans in plain view to mimic improvised landmines and stalled the advance of Russian tanks in the streets of Budapest.

In 2013 a Syrian teenager demonstrated an important principle of any resistance movement: It is NOT your job to die for your country! It is your job to make the OTHER GUY die for HIS country!!!!

This intrepid teenager singlehandedly eliminated a million dollar tank with a bargain basement hand grenade.

It was always thus and thus it will always be…..

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.

Newsbusters website makes a noble attempt:

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.

Feral Cop Gone Wild! (Again!)

SWATRifle6

It is just amazing…. when cops are not shooting dogs (their own and others),cows, veterans just off a midnight job shift, other cops and law enforcement or threatening teenagers, Concealed Carry Citizens, pedestrians, physically or mentally impaired individuals…. they walk into volatile situations as a complete menace to themselves and others before a single shot has been fired! CLICK LINK HERE

Today’s example, a SWAT Cop (those guys…. the highly trained, highly practiced special Super Cops who regular Cops call to do the heavy lifting) with a visibly non-functional rifle deployed in real time!

How is it possible to know the rifle is not ready for use? Because a very distinctive easily identified sight is mounted backwards. If anyone had bothered just once to look through the sight for a moment they would have known something was wrong. Immediately. We can only hope when that moment finally comes, presumably in the heat of a firefight, the officer will have the wisdom to hold his fire.

Nobody up or down the chain of command told him to get lost before he hurt someone, or questioned his preparation in the days, weeks or months leading up to the crisis, or even thought to tell anyone up or down the chain of command!

How many hunt clubs or target ranges would summarily remove an ordinary citizen who had a loaded rifle with a sight installed backwards demonstrating to one and all it had never even been dry fired?

This was NOT a simple mistake. It was, in fact, a very complicated one. Besides the reversed sight installation, the rifle was never inspected at a muster, it was never fired at a range, it was never adjusted for maximum performance by ANYONE, let alone the officer who carried it as his issue weapon.

Sigh. Coming soon to a Police Department near you….

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.

Nightmares, out-of-control aggressive behavior, extreme sadness and passivity, confusion, hallucinations, mania, brain damage, suicide, homicide—these are just a few central effects of psychiatric drugs.

Read the staggering statistics reported by Robert Whitaker, the author of Mad in America: Bad Science, Bad Medicine, and the Enduring Mistreatment of the Mentally Ill: “The number of adults, ages 18 to 65, on the federal disability rolls due to mental illness jumped from 1.25 million in 1987 to four million in 2007. Roughly one in every 45 working-age adults is now on government disability due to mental illness.

“This epidemic has now struck our nation’s children, too. The number of children who receive a federal payment because of a severe mental illness rose from 16,200 in 1987 to 561,569 in 2007, a 35-fold increase.”
