At some level, this was/is true

Perspectives, by Phelps:

There are 800,000 law enforcement officers in America.

The FBI did five million NICS checks for people buying firearms in America — in November and December 2012 alone.

That’s over six guns per cop in the last two months.

Confiscation?  You better start negotiation.

I get the narcissistic arrogance of the regime and cronies in both houses – including Republicans. However, there still must be some level of rationality to empty guns tore shelves, national back orders of 1 million + AR mags, and the fact that .223 is so scarce right now, it’s going for almost $1 a round. Some logical shred of thought has to be in there somewhere. It has echoes of Bob Owens all over it.

If I was someone in the regime’s camp, I would have looked at all the above and said, “uh, hold up there a minute barry, them thar peasants are a might itchy on the trigger there”.

While grabbing a cheeseburger last Friday with a mate, we were discussing the tired old adage, “Why do you need a thirty round magazine?” and I said simply, and perhaps a bit too loud in a public place, “I need it for shooting politicians who have become tyrants…”. There was an echo of “Amen!” & “Bet your ass!”.

Interesting times indeed when Smashburger becomes a hotbed of subversion.

 

 

Politics: Comments Overheard

While wading through the comments on this over at CA’s Intel Hub, Mike said:

I may be wrong, but I do believe Obama will pull this off.

What Carter could not do, Obama will: utilize the full power of the State (DOJ Civil Rights Division, for example), the full power of the MSM, the full power of racial invective, and the tools of mass mobilization (FB, and so on) to eke out a victory in November. As sad as it sounds, the U.S. of 2012 is no longer the U.S. of 1980 — and 2008 proved it.

The need for a Nietzschean “Dear Leader” is palpable. Vendors outside the DNC were selling hagiographic memorabilia of Obama using John 3:16 (“For God so loved the world…”) to pose Obama as the Son of God. Inside the Convention, the Dems were doing one better: removing “God” from their platform, leaving Government and Obama as the new implicit Deity. Villaraigosa rammed “God” back in there, but he did so over the protests of most of the delegates — and we all know that the Dems put it back in for tactical reasons, not because they truly have a God aside from Obama. It doesn’t get more unhinged than that; it’s mass psychosis, and most of the country is infected with it. Obama is the beneficiary, and a transitory one at that, but he is a useful marker of our decline: a Nation that can elect an Obama is a Nation that will not last long. Hence the need to prepare for the eventual break-up of the U.S.

I am not particularly religious, but even I am scared as hell of the Dems now. This hunger to deify a mortal man signals the end of any republican inclination in a large percentage of the American populace, just as the same urge to deification signaled the end of the Roman Republic. History doesn’t always repeat, but it does rhyme.

And I hope we all are clear on what such a population is capable of.

Especially this:

This hunger to deify a mortal man signals the end of any republican inclination in a large percentage of the American populace, just as the same urge to deification signaled the end of the Roman Republic. History doesn’t always repeat, but it does rhyme.

That’s some scary excrement right there.

Sic transit gloria mundi.

Whenever man is given the spotlight, our true nature shines through and literally millions die. It. Happens. Every. Damn. Time. Why would this time be any different? Add our current tech levels to that equation and you have the formula for mass slaughter on a historically epic scale.

This is not an, “he must be defeated at any cost…” post either. The other guy is just as bad – only delaying the inevitable. It’s the philosophical construct here.

The state is not God. It will never be. Man is imperfect and deeply flawed. Relying on the morality of either of those will cause civilization to tumble.

 

 

The Heating of the Rhetoric

In my life, I never thought I would see an article like this out in the open and not buried down in some obscure, tinfoil hat publication:

Whatever chicanery Obama and his investors may be contemplating, it will probably unfold against some gargantuan crisis, manufactured or otherwise.  So cast your mind back to September 11, 2001, the day of the New York mayoral primary.

I fear some of this may come to fruition between now and January 2013.

On open mics and foreign pandering

This guy is merely a cog. He wields no actual power, and makes no decisions except what he wants as a midnight snack.

If you believe any different, you are essentially a fool.

While these actions will impact the upcoming unpleasantness, your day to day marches on as usual. Keep your head up, your wits about you, and your powder dry. Do not let this paltry distraction allow your focus to shift from building your tribe and asserting your individual Liberty.

Ideas are Timeless

See AP post here. I stole the title from the first comment because, as always, someone else said it better and I’m lazy.

See Patriot’s Lament here for the linked post.

These goons just won’t stop. They think so little of us serfs they don’t even want to bother having to hear our voices. Whatever happened to the Right to Petition grievances? Have you goons not read about the colonist and king George?
Nah, that’s to much trouble.

See, here’s the rub. Ideas are timeless. The thought police push further and further, and these laws (writs on paper) are just that. The spirit of Liberty still lives with some of us. It is those few who will stand our ground as the forces of darkness encroach further upon the masses.

I for one would never stand for this. I am armed ALL of the time – even when the state says I cannot be. Whatever happened to disregarding excrement like this and going forward as free men? Where are the free men & women?

As CA so succinctly puts it, I am already dead. It is what I do with the time I have left here that counts.
