GUNS: Don’t put your loved ones in harm’s way; arm yourself now while you still can!

Dumb, Dumber And Dumbest by Charley Reese

*** begin quote ***

If you believe in the right to life, then you must believe in the right to have the means to defend that life. Unless you wish to spend years learning the bow and arrow and the broadsword, I’d suggest you join 4 million others and me in the National Rifle Association, lest a bunch of dumb urban politicians put you and your family at the mercy of any wandering criminal.

True then; even truer now.

Although I’d suggest the Gun Owners of America as opposed to the NRA. The NRA accepts the concept of “reasonable gun regulation”. There is no “reasonable regulation” of ANY right! Either it is an “inalienable right” or it’s something subject to the whim of the Gooferment.

And, about Right to Life, or any “right”, you only have the “rights” that you are willing to fight for and exercise.

(The interesting point about the RKBA is that with concealed carry, you don’t have to carry to get a benefit. See the criminals have to guess who packing and who isn’t. Like sprinkling sheepdogs with big teeth in the flock of sheep. Quite a surprise for the wolves when they guess wrong. See “gun free zones” merely tell criminals that they have nothing to fear. We let the school janitor carry tools; the gun is nothing more than a tool.)

Like that Churchill quote! “…if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” -Churchill, The Second World War, vol. 1, The Gathering Storm (London: Cassell, 1948, 272, on the British guarantee to Poland in Spring 1939.

When do the sheep fight? When on the way to the slaughter?

From my cold dead hand … …

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Health Care: Oppose greater government role. Support free market solutions!

Health Care: Oppose greater government role. Support free market solutions

*** begin quote ***

Please oppose increased government involvement in health care. Please work to reduce government involvement in health care.

We can’t afford to lose what we have by further governmental meddling in health care. Go fix the VA and Medicare before you start messing up something that is at least working.

*** end quote ***

Before you create a worse problem, how about trying some small gentle corrections. How about making medical insurance tax deductible in reducing the gross income right on page 1 of the 1040 just like an IRA contribution? If you’re concerned about the “uninsured”, why not make that tax deduction and refundable tax credit paid directly to an insurance company? Why not offer your congressional health plan to an “uninsured”?

Bottom line, just like we wouldn’t have identity theft without social security numbers, we won’t have medical privacy if you “federalize” this problem. Stay out of our doctor’s office.

Don’t nationalize health care! We’ve seen Canada, England, and the VA. No thanks!

LIBERTY: They did what they were asked to do

*** begin quote ***

The best known D-Day is June 6, 1944 — the day on which the Invasion of Normandy began — commencing the Western Allied effort to liberate mainland Europe from Nazi occupation during World War II.

*** end quote ***


One thing is for sure, many good men died this day.

Was it worth it? Only history will tell. Only God knows what might have been.

(Remember “It’s a wonderful life”?)

If we as a society truly value our soldiers and veterans, then we would not allow the gooferment to treat them so badly.

Let’s bring the troops home. Now! (Remember I told you that Ron Paul was that only true anti-war candidate.)

Let’s have the courage to demand, and pay for, the VA.

Let’s beware of the politicians who risk our troops for ill defined, venial, or (yes, sometimes) personal reasons.

Remember the 6th of June and all these days that good men died.
