Another fine tale of mischief and mayhem from the Capital of North Carolina courtesy of correspondent RALEIGH CONSTITUENT:

Players Retreat: When Liberals Collide!

Dear John Jacob;


You may have heard back in July a Purse Fight Royale’ broke out here in Raleigh at Player’s Retreat- a vintage local eatery some 60 years old- in regard to the topic of Concealed Carry.


The fuss began when newbie red diaper Liberal City Democrats faced off with the only implacable enemy they really have here in North Carolina- local yellow dog Country Democrats. Needless to say when these two paws of the same weasel engage in a philosophical shadow boxing match hijinks ensue.


At least one Dummiecrat always limps away with a black eye and bloody nose; similar to the throwdown that just unfolded in the Colorado Recall elections.

For six decades Players Retreat has been the Southern Redneck answer to the Irish Pub; the British Tavern; the German Beer Hall; or even the Super Max Prison Cafeteria with a touch of Biker Bar or Longshoreman Waterfront Dive thrown in for some additional zest.


This fine establishment was founded in 1951 when Raleigh was a true sleepy little College Town with few alternatives for after work entertainment, so the PR, as it is known, became the venue of choice for everyone including the Governor; the White Shoe attorney crowd; blue collar workers and even incoming freshman from the campus of what is now known as North Carolina State University. A true egalitarian mix of all social classes.


Nowadays under the current management of one Gus Gusler the interior ambiance has remained remarkably unchanged from earlier times – right down to the boxy wooden florescent light fixtures with trademark red bulbs and open unshielded egg crate decorative grates that trap and hold every last greasy dust bunny loose enough to float up into the half inch squares.


Why a gooey hairball never drifts back down from these ancient fixtures into the admittedly excellent food and drink served by Mr. Gusler is just part of the mysterious charm of the place.


Mr.Gusler’s big innovation has been to gentrify the menu with a fine contemporary selection of local craft beers, an exceptional assortment of upscale sipping liquors and he will even serve his clientele “Watermelon Cucumber Gazpacho with Pickled Shrimp” at their request – a far cry from the hearty robust Bernie Burger with a side of fries and a cold bottle of Miller served as yesteryear’s daily special .


So that was the state of affairs in July when the situation got a little dicey because plucky 2nd Amendment Activists at Grass Roots North Carolina managed to push through a “restaurant carry” bill in the General Assembly to legalize possession of pistols in venues which serve alcohol provided the Pistol Permit Holder does not drink.


For some reason this legislation did not sit well with Mr. Gusler, and he immediately took to Facebook to issue a swift and draconian response. He threatened to install a metal detector at the entrance to his establishment!


And THAT is when the fur began to fly!


Come to find out some of his trusted Communist fellow travelers admitted IN WRITING to possession of concealed weapons in his establishment right under his nose for the past decade regardless of current law or statute!

PRFinalC
With their written confession in his possession Mr. Gusler did not hesitate to turn on his loyal clientele and publicly brand them as criminals!

PlayersRetreatPacking4A
The allegation of criminal behavior did not sit very well with said clientele and one clienteleee immediately and publicly reminded Mr. Gusler his establishment MIGHT be guilty of serving alcohol to underage drinkers and “overserving” patrons who may have already passed their limit of alcohol consumption.

PRFinalA

The shouting match stopped just short of summoning a code compliance visit from the Health Department to check overall sanitation and hygiene on the premises.


After all, good liberals must stick together and paper over their differences to let the good times roll!


Now outside observers of an inquiring turn of mind might notice a number of curious perplexities in this little Snafu.


Are there really Democrat Concealed Carry Pistol Permittees in North Carolina dumb enough to confess IN WRITING to the crime of weapon possession while intoxicated?


And if Democrats carry pistols while intoxicated does that not bolster the argument that criminal behavior cannot be legislated?


And if this conduct has occurred for over a decade without incident, does that fact not bolster the argument that weapons are not automatically evil and the root source of all bad things in the world? Could the truth be a malignant mentality is more likely to produce a malignant outcome than any physical object?


These and many other perplexities remain currently unresolved. And Players Retreat seems to have resumed normal operations for now.


But stay tuned. Who knows what new excitement tomorrow will bring?

Bemusedly yours,
Raleigh Constituent

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.

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.

Brits Protest American Internet Censorship

American Legislative Tyranny is so out-of-control the British have begun to protest.

You know, England where they are subjects, not citizens, and under the thumb of the Official Secrets Act? Yeah, those British.

Seems at least one Brit is concerned about the implications of the Stop Online Piracy Act and provides some startling examples of how it will be applied with the aid of current examples.

His soliloquy is, of course, enhanced by that wonderful upper crust Monty Python accent that makes even the most droll topic seem somehow absolutely riveting – a good thing- since the people in the United States most likely to be immediately affected by this legislation would be, of course, your local gun blogger, 2nd Amendment RKBA Activist.

Yes, David Codrea would no longer have to plead with his readers to “share the link” because there would no longer be a link to share.

As far as the need to share this link, it has already gone from 2,000 + this morning to 255,000+ as I write this.

Thank Heaven for British diction! Enjoy!

Hoo Boy! I am sure this is just a typo from our devout Muslim Neighbors.

I am glad to see these people exercise the freedom of Speech guaranteed by our Constitution.

Since I am a self-described Provincial you can imagine my surprise the messages are in English and sound suspiciously like Democrat Talking Points.

Obviously a black flag operation perpetrated by evil Republicans on an innocent and unsuspecting Muslim Community!!

At least one contributor has labeled the original author as a MODERATOR on that board!

Has NC Governor Committed An Impeachable Offense?

(The Oath Can Be Found At Minute 6:45)

Direct Link to Oath CLICK HERE

Poor Beverly Perdue. She cannot quite get the hang of this State of Emergency thing.

Is it possibly because she is just another product of our Public Education System and is thus unable to read, write, or comprehend all those complicated legal terms and concepts? Only her grade school teachers know for sure. If you can find any willing to claim her as student.

In any case, a number of CCH holders in counties East Of I-95 are somewhat uneasy about the Governor’s whimsical interpretation of General Statutes and worry whether their local officials will interpret their Oaths of Office as arbitrarily and capriciously as the Governor.

So even if the Governor believes herself correct, the local Sheriff, Police, District Attorney et al may believe otherwise and there is NOTHING the Governor can legally do to alter their behavior and statute interpretation.

Over at No Lawyers, Only Guns and Money Mr. Richardson has already expressed his reservations about the current state of affairs. CLICK LINK HERE

So where does the Impeachment part enter?

Recall almost exactly a year ago the Good Governor essentially suspended Dove Season as well as the 2nd Amendment for the ENTIRE State in name if not fact because of anticipated damage from Hurricane Earl. Mostly it seemed to depend upon which Authority found their neck in the noose at the time.

In short, NC criminalized an entire class of citizens. Including me and my companion, each carrying a gun as we passed through NC, and doing so legally as far as we knew. Of course, unless the traveler was tuned to the right radio station at the right moment, they could not have known they’d just been criminalized, as we didn’t until we’d already passed through. This does not make me warm and fuzzy.

THIS YEAR the Governor attempted to learn from past experience and issued Executive Order 103. CLICK LINK HERE

Executive Order 103 included Section 7 – The Chinese Menu Clause. The Governor picked one law from Column A and one law from Column B and essentially said she would selectively enforce the laws she liked and ignore the laws she did not like. The best ObamaNation intellectualism replicated in North Carolina! CLICK LINK HERE or HERE

Section 7.
This order is adopted pursuant to my powers under Article 1 of Chapter 166A of the General Statutes and under Article 36A of Chapter 14 of the General Statutes. It does not trigger the limitations on weapons in G.S. § 14-288.7 or impose any limitation on the consumption, transportation, sale or purchase of alcoholic beverages.

Unfortunately, as per her Oath Of Office, that is not allowed and is thus impeachable as a high crime and misdemeanor.

Delightful Excerpt:

I grew up with firearms. By the age of nine, I had a .22 rifle, a shotgun, and a Winchester 94 deer rifle hanging on a rack in my bedroom. At the age of 12, I had a loaded Colt .45 automatic in the desk drawer in that same bedroom.

The Great Reset


Show of hands. Everyone ready to impeach ObamaNation yet? There is no time “to wait” for an election or a conference or some infernal Politburo Super Congressional Committee. Seize the day or suffer the consequences. Speak up or forever hold your peace. We can no longer afford the luxury of Rule By Kaskistocracy!

Tantalizing Excerpt:

The Shape of Things To Come (July 8, 2011)

The Great Reset could take many forms. The only certain thing is that today’s profound political disunity and our destabilizing financial Plutocracy will force a crisis.

Today we have several types of political disunity. Superficially, the two “political theater” wings of the Demopublicans stage a bitter partisan war over whose vision of the U.S. as a “Plutocracy, but with benefits” holds an increasingly enfeebled political power.

The real disunity is between a doomed Status Quo and those willing to deal with reality. Right now those willing to deal with reality are few, but they have the distinct advantage of reality on their side, while the Status Quo has only propaganda, artifice, phony political theater and empty promises.

Anthony Martin offers his analysis of Black Monday:

CLICK LINK HERE

Tantalizing Excerpt:

America could well be headed for a dreaded ‘black Monday’ on August 8. The term ‘black Monday’ was coined to denote a precipitous drop in the stock market. Today, however, the stock market is not always an accurate gauge of the health of the economy, particularly when super-billionaires such as George Soros bet on plunges in the market and invest their money accordingly. Thus, black Moday on August 8 may or may not involve a steep decline in stocks, although many believe that is precisely what will occur.

A more realistic scenario would involve the following:

1. The costs of auto loans, mortgages, student loans, and other types of lending will increase dramatically, meaning that interest rates on these loans will rise. Even a rise of half a percentage point in the interest rate would mean mortgage rates on a home costing $175,000 will increase on average by $19,000 dollars.

2. The costs for goods and services will rise.

Economic Collapse & Security: I Am Your Worst Nightmare

By Jeff T.

I am the leader of a band of 8-to-12 looters. I have some basic military training. We move from place to place like locusts devouring everything in our path. My group is armed with light weapons and can develop and follow simple plans of attack. We take what we want by force of arms. We prefer none of our victims survive because that could cause problems for us in the future. It has been six months since the grid went down. You and the other five members of your party have settled into what may be a long grinding existence. The every day tasks of growing and gathering have now become routine. The news from the outside is extremely limited but you don’t really miss it much. Life is simple but physically demanding.

Although things may seem stable you will need to keep your team focused and alert. This is your first and most important layer of defense. You should hold an immediate reaction drill once per week. Keep things simple. Practice a specific response to such threats as injury, fire, attack and evacuation. Despite the challenges you must maintain contact with those around you such as neighbors for vital clues that trouble is brewing. Regular monitoring the radio will be critical in providing an early warning of trouble. You may be able to safely interview refugees with risking your party. Keep in mind the information you get from them may not always be reliable.

While you have been farming I have been learning the best tactics to employ to seize your property and your goods. I have been refining them since we hit the road right after the lights went out. I have conducted eight “hits” so far and have been successful seven times. Here are some of my “lessons learned”.

William Norman Grigg- Oslo Bomber

Over at Pro Libertate William Norman Grigg brings his usual insightful analysis to the events of the past few days in Norway.

CLICK LINK HERE

Excerpt:

Roughly a decade ago, Al Pacino starred in a movie entitled S1m0ne, a cyber-era updating of the Pygmalion myth in which a film director creates an uncannily realistic digital actress. Despite the fact that “Simone” was a computer-rendered composite fantasy, the lustrous blond enchantress becomes a global pop culture sensation – a profitable illusion sustained through increasingly desperate acts of misdirection on the part of the director.

It’s tempting to think that accused Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik is a S1m0ne-style digital fantasy drawn to specifications provided by Morris Dees’ so-called Southern Poverty Law Center. Breivik used social networking sites to create a cyber-persona seemingly made to order for left-leaning “watchdog” groups. Available photographs depict the blond, stereotypically Nordic Breivik as if he were a dress-up doll, his face oddly unmarked and expressionless as he poses in a variety of guises – including Freemason garb and a scuba outfit.

In similar fashion, his recorded ideological pronouncements – the quotes attributed to him in the aftermath of the killing spree in Oslo and Utoya, and his bloated “manifesto” – could be the work of someone determined to embody every detail of the familiar caricature of the right-wing “hate criminal.”

Sin·gu·lar·i·ty: a point or region of infinite mass density at which space and time are infinitely distorted by gravitational forces and held to be the final state of matter as it falls into a black hole

Long ago and far away I had an opportunity to talk to an old man, a survivor of WWII and
a member of the Axis Conscript Army from one of those little roll over countries of Eastern Europe – you know, Poland, Romania, Hungary et.al.

I asked him what he made of his experience in the 20th Century?

He answered in one word: “Amazement”.

To clarify he said: “One day you wake up and believe you will do pretty much what you have always done the way you have always done it. On that day you learn you will never again do any of the things you have always done in any of the ways you have always done them.”

The phrase did not exist when he spoke of his experience in World War Twice, but he clearly described the reality of SOCIETAL SINGULARITY- the change, in an instant, from a world you comprehend perfectly to a world unrecognizable in every aspect.
