Seems obvious to me. Squeeze the perfumed princes in the Pentagon and properly arm the girls and boys.

Can’t we look under the covers and see that the USA’s “defense” is not the problem. It’s the “offense”.

“Department of Defense” is definitely a deliberately mislabeling of an identity.

I read this back in the mid 70’s after 4 years in the USAF. It completed my change into a little L libertarian as well as a real anti-war zealot. (Not the psuedo ersatz anti-war movement that comes out whenever there is an R in the White House and disappears when it’s occupant is a D!) It’s short and sarcastic so I really liked it. It’s a quick read and if it doesn’t influence your thinking, please let me know.

I especially like his idea that the military vote on “going to war” decisions. There’s a reason that few of the politicians and bureaucrats have their children in the military. Remember Heinlein’s Starship Troopers’ universe? One does not merely have the right to be a citizen and vote by virtue of what Heinlein called the mere accident of birth; rather, one has to earn this right through Federal Service that tested one’s ability and willingness to sacrifice for the greater good of the polity. Bet not a lot of vets would vote for any, if not all, the undeclared wars the USA has been in since WW2?

It should be required reading for the USA citizenship exam and I be you’ll never see it in the Gooferment Skrules.

GUN: A defensive firearm, quickly accessible in the living room … …

Elderly Hamilton Man Shoots Robbery Suspect
By Bob Irwin AmmoLand.com
November 19, 2016

*** begin quote ***

USA – The Journal News in Hamilton, Ohio reports 11-02- 2016 an 88-year-old resident had just finished washing his car in the front yard of his home Tuesday night when a man and a woman cornered him.

They demanded money and forced him into the house.

Once inside the victim said they hit him in the face and in the chest. He thought he was going to be severely beaten. The male robber taunted him “You don’t have a gun, do you?”

*** and ***

A defensive firearm, quickly accessible in the living room, saved this victim’s life. One would not expect any 88 year old to survive a physical beat down. Hopefully there is enough physical evidence available to allow a quick apprehension. The cowardly animals that attack such elderly victims really need to be off the street.

The victim was apparently cool, calm and experienced enough to intend a non-lethal shot. Amazing! The criminal’s comment about the victim indicates that he was perhaps the burglar who stole it previously.

He obviously didn’t feel comfortable taking a life. Many would argue that was a mistake but it’s unfair to second guess victims who were in the situation. It was a choice that is only his to make.

*** end quote ***

One can never know for sure what we would do in that circumstance.

I’d like to think I could be that cool under pressure.

I’m unaware of any instructor who teaches anything but shoot for the center of mass.

I’d agree that these two leggett varmints need to be put down quickly before they kill someone else. Like a bear that kills a human get euthanized. These two criminals may have learned to kill their victims. 

Sitting here on my couch, as a pro-life little L libertarian, I’d have shot both for the center of mass. If for no other reason than to save their next victim’s life.

So sad to have to say that, but that victim’s life is worth saving.

TINFOILHAT: Was Patton killed to shut him up?

Movie Review: Silence Patton
By Bill Sardi
November 19, 2016

*** begin quote ***

General Patton was outspoken.  He was no diplomat.  He saw no romance in war as military recruiters often sell to young men.  He had the unflinching nerve. He didn’t mince his words.  He spoke with bluntness.  He was not politically correct. 

*** and ***

World War II on the Eastern Front was wrapping up.  German generals signed an unconditional surrender agreement on May 7, 1945.   US generals would return home to face hearings and inquiries about the war.  As the film indicates, General Patton was going to disclose all the screw-ups and mistakes on the war front.  Somebody didn’t want Patton’s bluntness to reach Congress and the American people. 

*** end quote ***

With very sketchy information at the time, my late uncles — who always suspected FDR caused Pearl Harbor — always believed that he was assassinated to shut him up. They felt it was to protect “the establishment”. 

Maybe that where I get my own tin foil hat?

What would Patton have exposed?

The sell out to the Russians by the communists in the US Government?

Sully the reputations of MacArthur, Ike, and other generals?

Maybe expose the profit makers in war on both sides?

We may never know.
