TINFOILHAT: A cover up at Palo Alto Commons? And, possibly elsewhere!

9 elderly jabbed –> 6 dead at Palo Alto Commons?

Recently, I heard an incredible story of vaccine injury that is a stunning example of why the vaccine isn’t safe for anyone, no matter how young or old you are:

Nine residents of Palo Alto Commons were given the jab and less than 1 week later, six were dead.

One of the dead was a former Federal Judge: Joan Stevenson Brennan Passell, but there was no obituary I could find. You can call up the public records office and, if you have a name, you can verify the deceased which I will do tomorrow.

I reached out to Palo Alto Commons, but nobody would comment. They all referred me to the Palo Alto Commons Executive Director Li Li:

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Who “owns” property? Us or the Gooferment?

NJ Nursery Closes After 100 Years, Affordable Housing Will Replace It

  • The plant nursery, which has been a staple to this town for over a century, will soon shut down. A big housing project will take its place.

Williams Nursery is located at 524 Springfield Ave in Westfield.

*** begin quote ***

WESTFIELD, NJ — Now slated to be the location of an affordable housing complex, Williams Nursery in Westfield announced they will soon be closing for good, after serving the community for over a century.

The family-owned plant nursery’s last day will be July 3, according to a lengthy Facebook post, signed by the Williams and Jackson families who own the garden. They wrote that shutting down a business that is 102 years old is “a difficult thing.”

“There have been countless wonderful customers that have passed through our doors,” the owners wrote on Facebook. “We are going to miss sharing the smiles, and chats. We know that some of you used our store as an oasis in a bump in your lives. We are grateful that we got to help smooth the edges of those bumps.”

*** and ***

Brindle said the Williams Nursery has been zoned for affordable housing since the 1990s, and this project will help Westfield meet its state-mandated affordable housing obligations.

Brindle explained that the Williams Nursery cannot be repurposed for another use, even for green space, because any property previously zoned for affordable housing must either:

Maintain its current use; or Be developed into inclusionary multi-family housing once the owner chooses to sell.

Unless buyers pay fair market value and are willing to maintain the property as a nursery, Brindle said the property must be sold and developed for the purpose of affordable housing.

Sorry but the Gooferment, of all levels, is out of control. Do this! Don’t do that! IF it’s YOURS, unless we say so.

New Jersey resident Patrick DePaola first registered to vote in June 1927. A 50-year employee as a printer for The New York Times, he died at age 105 more than a decade ago, in December 2010.

But DePaola, who lived in Bayonne, remains listed as an “active” voter and is among 2,398 registered voters in New Jersey who appear to be 105 or older.

That’s according to a new report by the election watchdog group Public Interest Legal Foundation, which notes that the average life expectancy in New Jersey is just under 81.

But ages in the Garden State get even more unusual, the report indicates.

What If? Questions a Bipartisan Probe of Jan. 6 Might Have Answered
Fred Lucas / @FredLucasWH / June 09, 2022

*** begin quote ***

A bipartisan investigation of the Capitol riot would dig into the security breakdown and not ignore questions that didn’t conform to a Democrat Party narrative, said Rep. Jim Banks, whose appointment to a select committee was blocked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“If I were ranking member of the committee, we would be asking the tough questions that Pelosi doesn’t want the committee to ask, because she’s responsible but she hasn’t been held accountable for the security failures at the Capitol and [on] Jan. 6,” Banks, R-Ind., told The Daily Signal.

“The more we learn, the more we realize that there were serious security failures at the Capitol, and why doesn’t this committee want to dig into that?” Banks added later. “They don’t want to dig into it because it deviates from their political narrative.”

The Most Terrifying Reality about School Shootings
By Charles Turot

*** begin quote ***

Here is the terrifying truth: the radical left wants mass murders in schools. They are useful for gaining power. I can no longer blame friends who imagine that the killers are some sort of Manchurian candidates, released to further a narrative and serve the purposes of the left. I don’t believe that, but the idea follows logically from the same conclusion I’ve drawn about school shootings: the left likes them. The left is powerful. There will be more. We could prevent them. We won’t.

*** end quote ***

One has to believe based on the evidence — like California STOPPING reporting violent threats — that the author is onto something.

Of course, we have to harden the “soft targets”, end “gun free zones” aka target rich environments, and allow people to defend themselves.

Block Inc. Survey Addresses Misconceptions About Bitcoin: Report
By Shawn Amick

*** begin quote ***

Block, a Bitcoin-oriented financial services firm previously known as Square, just released Bitcoin: Knowledge and Perception, a report detailing a survey of 9,500 participants conducted through a partnership with Wakefield Research to address common misconceptions about bitcoin.

Throughout the questionary, some interesting insights were shared such as:

  • 88% of the respondents are aware of Bitcoin.
  • 73% of no-coiners who know a bitcoiner, are likely to buy bitcoin.
  • The percentage of people optimistic about bitcoin’s future is slightly higher for high-income individuals.
  • Asia has the highest optimism in bitcoin’s future.
  • Adoption is significantly higher on countries with high inflation.
  • 51% of the people not buying it, don’t know enough about it.

There is definitely an area of opportunity in improving education to gain further adoption.

IMHO as a gun owning pro-life pro-choice little L libertarian, bitcoin is a way to bring “financial” liberty to “We, The Sheeple”.

Dear Friends, Sorry to Announce a Genocide
It’s Really True: They Know they are Killing the Babies
Dr Naomi Wolf
May 29

*** begin quote ***

I’ve been silent for some weeks. Forgive me.

The truth is: I’ve been rendered almost speechless — or the literary equivalent of that — because recently I’ve had the unenviable task of trying to announce to the world that indeed, a genocide — or what I’ve called, clumsily but urgently, a “baby die-off” — is underway.

*** and ***

The WarRoom/DailyClout Volunteers have confirmed: that Pfizer (and thus the FDA) knew by December 2020 that the MRNA vaccines did not work — that they “waned in efficacy” and presented “vaccine failure.” One side effect of getting vaccinated, as they knew by one month after the mass 2020 rollout, was “COVID.”

Pfizer knew in May of 2021 that 35 minors’ hearts had been damaged a week after MRNA injection — but the FDA rolled out the EUA for teens a month later anyway, and parents did not get a press release from the US government about heart harms til August of 2021, after thousands of teens were vaccinated. [https://dailyclout.io/pfizer-vaccine-fda-fails-to-mention-risk-of-heart-damage-in-teens/]

Pfizer (and thus the FDA; many of the documents say “FDA: CONFIDENTIAL” at the lower boundary) knew that, contrary to what the highly paid spokesmodels and bought-off physicians were assuring people, the MRNA, spike protein and lipid nanoparticles did not stay in the injection site in the deltoid, but rather went, within 48 hours, into the bloodstream, from there to lodge in the liver, spleen, adrenals, lymph nodes, and, if you are a woman, in the ovaries.

So when do the “Nuremberg” trials start?

If I was a prosecutor like “Ben Stone” or “Adam Schiff” on “Law & Order”, then I’d start at the bottom.  Indict the “little people” at the bottom of the “conspiracy” and then let them “trade up” (i.e., testify against a big fish for a better deal).  I can imagine it would be like throwing chum in the water with folks elbowing in to get the first deal.

VETERANS: D-Day — anyone remember it?

https://www.army.mil/d-day/history.html

*** begin quote ***

The Normandy beaches were chosen by planners because they lay within range of air cover, and were less heavily defended than the obvious objective of the Pas de Calais, the shortest distance between Great Britain and the Continent. Airborne drops at both ends of the beachheads were to protect the flanks, as well as open up roadways to the interior. Six divisions were to land on the first day; three U.S., two British and one Canadian. Two more British and one U.S. division were to follow up after the assault division had cleared the way through the beach defenses.

Disorganization, confusion, incomplete or faulty implementation of plans characterized the initial phases of the landings. This was especially true of the airborne landings which were badly scattered, as well as the first wave units landing on the assault beaches. To their great credit, most of the troops were able to adapt to the disorganization. In the end, the Allies achieved their objective.

Technician Fifth Grade John J. Pinder Jr.

Unit: 16th Infantry, 1st Infantry Division

Citation: For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty on 6 June 1944, near Colleville-sur-Mer, France. On D-day, Technician 5th Grade Pinder landed on the coast 100 yards off shore under devastating enemy machinegun and artillery fire which caused severe casualties among the boatload. Carrying a vitally important radio, he struggled towards shore in waist-deep water. Only a few yards from his craft he was hit by enemy fire and was gravely wounded. Technician 5th Grade Pinder never stopped. He made shore and delivered the radio. Refusing to take cover afforded, or to accept medical attention for his wounds, Technician 5th Grade Pinder, though terribly weakened by loss of blood and in fierce pain, on 3 occasions went into the fire-swept surf to salvage communication equipment. He recovered many vital parts and equipment, including another workable radio. On the 3rd trip he was again hit, suffering machinegun bullet wounds in the legs. Still this valiant soldier would not stop for rest or medical attention. Remaining exposed to heavy enemy fire, growing steadily weaker, he aided in establishing the vital radio communication on the beach. While so engaged this dauntless soldier was hit for the third time and killed. The indomitable courage and personal bravery of Technician 5th Grade Pinder was a magnificent inspiration to the men with whom he served.

Nancy Pelosi Finally Loses Some Money

DC Schools Spend the Most to Educate the Least At a whopping cost of $23,754 per student, Washington DC schools spend more than any state in the nation besides New York. And what do you receive for their college-priced public schools? Just 23% of eighth grade DC students were proficient in math and reading according to 2019 tests from the National Assessment of Educational Progress. That is the worst performance in the nation. Incidentally, it was a DC school we talked about last week that introduced students to a “fistbook” (not handbook) which asked five year old children to identify which members of their families were racist. And the same school system endorses the “BLM at school” curriculum, which includes “Introduction to Transgender and Non-binary Identities” for preschoolers. This school district obviously has its priorities straight. Unfortunately they don’t include math and reading.

Law may allow Texas school shooting 911 calls, bodycam videos to be withheld
By Eileen AJ Connelly
June 4, 2022 4:57pm Updated

  • Police walk near Robb Elementary School following a shooting, Tuesday, May 24, 2022, in Uvalde, Texas.
  • Uvalde police are allowed to stop any additional 911 records or body cam footage during the school shooting from being released due to a “dead suspect loophole” law, according to a local reporter.

*** begin quote ***

Police may never have to fully account for what went wrong during the Uvalde school massacre, thanks to a quirk in Texas law.

The law, meant to protect people wrongly accused, says police agencies may not release their investigative files unless a person is convicted of a crime.

But when an accused criminal dies before they’re convicted, it enables police to withhold information, an award-winning Texas journalist said.

Dubbed the “dead suspect loophole,” the law has prevented families of those who die in police custody from learning about the circumstances of those deaths, said according to Tony Plohetski, an investigative reporter for the Austin American Statesman newspaper and KVUE.

The Charleston (West Virginia) incident from a few days ago, the FBI 2021 statistics, and more.

*** begin quote ***

Finally, always keep in mind that active shooter situations should not be the main focus in the gun debate, whether for gun control or gun decontrol: They on average account for less than 1% of the U.S. homicide rate and are unusually hard to stop through gun control laws (since the killer is bent on committing a publicly visible murder and is thus unlikely to be much deterred by gun control law, or by the prospect of encountering an armed bystander). But people talk about them a lot, so I thought I’d offer a perspective on them for those who are interested.

*** end quote ***

I read this very calm and seemed to be neutral After Action review of the particular Charleston West Virginia incident.

The only quibble I have is, and I agree, with to paraphrase “criminals are undeterred by laws and probably an armed bystander”.  What about “gun free zones” being an attractive nuisnece.  We know from Columbine that the criminal in that case traveled further to a movie house that was “gun free”.  This assuring that even the slight risk of a “good guy (or gal) with gun” might interfere.  

So perhaps eliminating all “gun free zones” and allowing unlimited concealed carry by non-felons, we might make their rage a little more “inconvenient”.

POLITICAL: Using the Electoral College model to eliminate “democracy”?

https://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/4065581/posts

GOP Candidate’s STATE-LEVEL Electoral College Idea Could Help Rural Areas — and Kill Vote Fraud
The New American ^ | May 21, 2022 | Selwyn Duke

Posted on 5/23/2022, 12:17:44 PM by Ebenezer

*** begin quote ***

In 2019, the Democrat-controlled Colorado Senate joined a liberal-state pact designed to eliminate our nation’s Electoral College system. Now a Colorado gubernatorial candidate is, far from just mounting a defense against this, taking the offense:

He has proposed instituting an electoral college within his state.

It’s an idea that not only could help rural Centennial State counties, but also could virtually neutralize vote fraud’s effectiveness. The Washington Examiner reports on the story:

One candidate in Colorado’s gubernatorial election has called for eliminating its one-person, one-vote approach in favor of a state-level electoral college….

Greg Lopez, a Republican candidate for Colorado’s governor, has pitched the idea of using an electoral college-based approach for statewide political office, arguing the current system favors large cities at the expense of more rural counties.

*** end quote ***

The Dead Old White Guys hated “democracy”.  They saw the French Revolution mob chopping off heads.  

So this fellow seeks to have a similar construct to the Electoral College at the State level.

(I have no idea why the pundit class thinks that it’ll be unconstitutional. Since we have it at the Federal level.)

It would be interesting to try somewhere.  

The Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee has 21 counties and the “rural” ones are always out-voted by the corrupt city Democratic machines.  Imagine if each county got one vote tor governor regardless of the popular vote.  Might change the election calculus?

And, while we are at it, let’s repeal the Seventeenth Amendment (direct election of senators).  The old system was cheaper and gave the States their voice on unfunded mandates. 

Argh!

Not like any new idea will succeed until secession begins in earnest.

*** begin quote ***

How serious are Trenton Democrats about confronting school safety in the wake of another gut-wrenching school shooting, this time in Uvalde, Texas?

I think you know the answer, Save Jerseyans.

On Thursday, Trenton Democrats blocked a bill (A303) sponsored by Assemblywoman Kim Eulner (R-11) to improve school safety training. A probe is presently underway concerning the police response to the Uvalde shooting amid allegations that the police were unprepared.

Democrat Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin promptly blocked the motion. Assemblyman John McKeon, also a Democrat, claimed that the motion was out-of-order. Speaker Coughlin ultimately refused to move the bill to second reading.

*** end quote ***

Unfortunately politicians and bureaucrats don’t think in terms of what is best for “We, The Sheeple”.

As a gun owning pro-life pro-choice little L libertarian, I don’t like the whole concept of Gooferment Skrules. BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), if “we” have to have them, then they should be like Fort Knox — unassailable.

If the Trenton Democrats have some valid objection to the bill — I can’t imagine what it is — they have an obligation to publicly voice them and propose their own version.  No one can argue that the police in mass shootings seems to be focused on containment and chalk lines. 

Personally, I have made note of these names and will remind “We, The Sheeple” when it’s time to vote of their actions.  Maybe it won’t make a difference in the vote totals, but, to quite Donald J. Trump’s immortal line from the Apprentice — “You’re fired”.

Timeline of a massacre: How events unfolded in Uvalde, Texas
11:32am Gunman arrives at the school after shooting his grandmother. She survived and called 911, telling them he had fled.

At the school the gunman encounters a school resource officer.

It’s unclear if he tried to shoot him but the gunman was able to make his way inside and barricades himself into a fourth grade classroom

11:43am: Robb Elementary School posts to Facebook that the campus has gone under lockdown due to gunshots in the area.

Parents rush to the scene

12.17pm: The school posts on Facebook that there is an ‘active shooter’ on campus

1.06pm:The Uvalde Police Department reports the suspect is ‘in police custody’ after police broke into the classroom.

By then, 150 cops had descended onto the scene but it took 90 minutes for them to get to the shooter and stop him

Shocking new video has emerged showing Texas cops restraining parents as they tried to rescue their kids on Tuesday after a gunman unleashed terror inside the elementary school, as questions grow over why it took so long to get to the shooter after the first 911 call.

Salvador Ramos, 18, arrived at the school in Uvalde at 11.30am, crashing his car into a ditch.

A school resource officer was at the scene but he failed to stop him from making his way inside.

Two other cops also rushed to the school at that time – Ramos had just shot his grandmother in the face at their home less than five miles away. She survived and called the police.

When they arrived, Ramos is said to have shot at them then ran into the school, where he barricaded himself in the fourth grade classroom and shot 19 kids and two teachers dead.

It took another 90 minutes from that point for police to declare the shooting over.

The “fog of war” seems to have begun to clear.

I’d like to read an “after action report”.  Seriously, “waited to find a key” sounds like “the dog ate my homework”.

I still am waiting to hear if the young criminal was on SSRIs. 

In any event, why was it so easy to get into the school. And, I thought that Texas was one of the States that armed teachers. 

The “school resource officer” was not very helpful.  

As painful as it will be to the parents, I hope someone is seriously looking at the video and taking note what could be dome NOW to prevent the next copy cat.

This is an amazing story. A good story because he got back alive. 

So many of our young women and men didn’t.  Of those that made it back, how many were broken?

And politicians and bureaucrats speak glibly about “war”.  Give them and their children a gun and a plane ticket. 

“A veteran is someone who at one point in his life wrote a blank check made payable to the ‘United States of America’ for an amount of ‘up to and including my life.'” -Anonymous

“A soldier accepts personal responsibility for the safety of the body politic of which he is a member, defending it, if need be, with his life. The civilian does not.” — Lt. Col. Jean V. Dubois (Ret.) and student, p. 26 Starship Troopers (1959) by Robert A. Heinlein

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 all the undeclared wars the USA has been in since WW2?

Let’s fill Congress with vets and see how quickly we get out of meaningless wars!

GUNS: Good police work reacting to a potential copy cat

Teen arrested for ‘threatening’ mass shooting at NY high school a day after Uvalde massacre

Bellport High School in Long Island.

*** begin quote ***

A 16-year-old was charged with aggravated harassment after threatening a shooting at Bellport High School on Instagram. 

A 16-year-old boy threatened a mass shooting at a Long Island high school on social media — just one day after the Uvalde, Texas school massacre, prosecutors said.

The teen was arrested for making a terroristic threat after he made a Wednesday Instagram post on his “Bellport Scholars” page that warned there could be a shooting at Bellport High School the next day, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office.

Cops didn’t find any guns in the home of the boy, whose identity was withheld by prosecutors because of his age.

As a gun owning pro-life pro-choice little L libertarian I see nothing wrong with this quick reaction.  If anything, maybe a night in jail would provide an object lesson.

Now the question is follow up and follow thru. 

  • Follow up with a complete medical and psych eval.  (I’d include a colonoscopy just so it gets the point across!)
  • Follow thru with a thorough examination of the individual’s environment — what he has access too.

I’d like to see the concept of a “extreme protective order” that puts the target under a microscope and their — should say his — environment.

That’s without taking everyone else’s guns away.

Thinking back to Hill Street Blues’ roll call I’d add “be alert if something is reported as kinky” and then “Be Safe Out There”.

HEALTH: Covid vaccine-injured pilots brought to the attention of the FAA

https://sharylattkisson.com/2022/05/pilots-and-scientists-sound-alarm-to-faa-re-vaccine-injured-pilots/

Pilots and scientists sound alarm to FAA re: Covid vaccine-injured pilots
Dated: May 20, 2022 by Sharyl Attkisson

*** begin quote ***

Pilots from 30 airlines including American, Delta, United, Jet Blue, Frontier, Alaskan, and Southwest are asking the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to address the health and safety concerns of several pilots who say they have been injured by the Covid-19 vaccines.

The pilots have joined 17,000 doctors and scientists who make up The Global Covid Summit in submitting a letter to the FAA and other civil aviation authorities. It outlines specific and serious concerns over the airlines’ Covid policies and their effects on pilot health and flight safety.

The Vaccine Safety Research Foundation (VSRF) is a watchdog organization that promotes scientific inquiry and encourages an open dialogue of transparency regarding medical and scientific information.

VSRF is supporting the coalition’s initiative by calling on the FAA to implement third party medical screening of all US-based commercial airline pilots, along with the public disclosure of all pilots who fail the screening.

*** end quote ***

This brings up two concerns —

  • what about the passengers flying on planes being flown by Covid vaccine-injured pilots?
  • If the Covid vaccine injured pilots, what about the rest of “We, The Sheeple”?

Sounds like another reason we can NOT trust what we are being told.

GUNS: Our guns prevent your genocide

Overkill: The Deadly Illogical of Gun Rights
By Greg Guma
Global Research, May 26, 2022
Region: USA
Theme: Law and Justice

*** begin quote ***

When a disturbed teenager or adult commits mass murder it has nothing to do with liberty. Yet, since the weapon is usually a gun, many people in the US essentially respond that the freedom to be armed is more important that the right to be safe. In fact, millions claim that being armed is the only way to be safe. Like most arguments against gun control, it’s cruel and illogical.

For decades now, leaders of gun rights groups have made the same case. They claim, for example, that the only thing separating Americans from people living in dictatorships is their unrestricted access to weapons. If the government has all the guns, they say, attacks against defenseless citizens will become as common in the US as they are in oppressed countries. This is one of the reasons why gun owners oppose the banning of so-called assault rifles.

Does this sound familiar? It certainly should. The same argument is still being made today by those who say nothing can be done to stop mass shootings like the recent ones in Texas and upstate New York. They also warn that only way to prevent a police state here, which many people claim is on the verge of happening, is to allow the wide and unregulated distribution of all sorts of weapons.

This idea, which assumes that any regulation is the first step toward confiscation, represents a paranoid and individualist mentality that for decades has dominated debate about gun violence in the US. We are free, the argument goes, only as long as we can defend ourselves with guns, not only against criminals but also against the law and the State.

*** and ***

The arguments against regulation tend to fall into three categories: 1) the right to bear arms is constitutionally protected, 2) gun control won’t reduce violence in society, and 3) gun laws are a serious threat to freedom. But do these assertions hold up to scrutiny?

The roots of traditional US ideas about the relationship between weapons and society actually go back centuries to the Florentine political philosopher Niccolo Machiavelli, who noted that military service should be the responsibility of every citizen, but soldiering the professional of none. Basing his ideas on the Roman suspicion of professional soldiers, he concluded that military force should only be used to assure the common good.

This idea of citizens bearing arms in defense of the State, to avoid the potential tyranny of a standing army, was translated by the authors of the Bill of Rights into the Second Amendments and helps to explain its unusual wording:

“A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

Many libertarians have interpreted this sentence to mean that individuals are guaranteed the right to possess firearms for their personal defense or for any other use they choose. What this fails to acknowledge is the meaning of citizenship as it was understood two and a half centuries ago. In the 18th century, citizenship directly involved militia service for men, which was part of the commitment to the greater public good. An armed citizenry did not mean an armed population. In fact, even then it was clearly understood that access to weapons was a communal rather than an individual right.

*** and ***

The bottom line is this: Effective regulation, combined with a comprehensive national database and a serious training program for gun users, would establish over time that less access to guns leads to less violent crime. This has been the case in Europe and some US states. Success would also help shatter the myth that government is the problem, and that people are better off armed to the teeth and on their own.

The debate over guns is not about restricting rights. That’s the cover story, an assumption promoted by the gun lobby to shape public perceptions. It’s not even about “control.” The goal is security, freedom from the fear and anxiety sweeping across this over-armed society.

A well-regulated militia is a altruistic idea, certainly preferable to the military-industrial complex. But almost 400 million guns in private hands is — pardon the expression — overkill.

*** end quote ***

In a long eloquent screed, the author makes an argument for “effective regulation” and that the Dead Old White Guys didn’t meant everyone.  

I almost spit out my coffee at “effective regulation”.  Would the author please point out ANY example of such “effective regulation” ANYWHERE in the world.  He cite cars as an example.  Has he dealt with the DMV lately?  And, even this week before the tragic shooting in Texas the ATF is accused of creating a permanent online gun registry in direct violation of Federal law.  So much for that argument.

Funny how if they meant militia, they didn’t say it.  It’s generally conceded that “well regulated” in their generation meant “hit what you aim at” not a bunch of bureaucrats making diktats.  If the Federal Gooferment would return control of the Army to the State governors, disband all the TLAs (three letter agencies), and disarm all the bureaucrats like at the Department of Agriculture, then maybe we can get back to the Dead Old White Guys’ intents. Then maybe we don’t need about ⅓ of “We, The Sheeple” armed like citizen soldiers.

I notice that the author doesn’t point out how Israel dealt with classroom shootings.

Further I notice that the author doesn’t address how mass shootings seem to take place in “gun free zones” or as I like to call then “target rich environments” AKA shooting galleries.

Stiff further I notice that the author doesn’t address violent crime in all major cities where “gun control” id the diktat.

Finally I notice that the author doesn’t address how genocides seem to happen when the citizenry is disarmed.  (And yes it does happen here — Waco, Ruby Ridge, the Native Americans, the Bonus Brigade, etc etc)

As a gun owning pro-life pro-choice little L libertarian, there are better scholars on these issues than me (i.e., John Lott; Tom Woods; Scott Horton; and litany of libertarian writers like Heinlein) who can do a better job of responding.

And with “gun control” fixated Democrats in charge of all branches of the Federal Gooferment why haven’t they advanced the agenda?  Because they know it’s a loser.  Nothing will will bring 100 million voters to the polls quicker than that infringement of the Second Amendment.

P.S., Don’t even bring up the concept of “social contract” because it’s a meaningless phrase.  See Lysander Spooner.

In summation, we live in the Fascist State controlled by an oligarchy of the rich who regard us with contempt.  Only the knowledge of an armed citizenry prevents them from loading the trains with “deplorable” and sending us to camps.

If that be paranoid, then I’l misquote a 60’s meme “Just because I’m paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get me!”

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn

So, whomever is sent to collect the guns, should be aware that unlike Germany in the 1920’s, gun owners in the USA will not go quietly.
