Agenda 21

Follow the link to the video. It's about nine and a half minutes, and is worth the watch. If you are a freedom-loving individual, make sure you stick around for the last 30 seconds.

It is still beyond me how there are so many arrogant people who believe stuff like this could work because they are head over it. Perhaps this is why the U.N. is pushing firearms control so much. They know this cannot be implemented until Americans are disarmed. At that, I hope and pray that Americans will never lay down their arms and submit their freedoms to the hands of tyrants. Take a look at the video, and if you have time read the agenda. It should scare you.

Barack Obama: A Bill of Indictment

All I can say to this is A-M-E-N!!!

Barack Obama: A Bill of Indictment

Victory for Freedom: Chicago gun ban falls!

Saw this and couldn't wait, even if it makes me late for work!

Best part - freedom has another victory
Next best - anti-gunners are going to be proven wrong again about blood in the streets as the crime will go down when residents of Chicago arm themselves.

Supreme Court: Chicago gun ban falls!

Infuriating Hypocrisy

Came upon this on Saturday, but just now getting the time to comment on it.

So, the G8 meets prior to a larger meeting of the G20. I'm going to post two quotes from the article, and see if you can sense any hypocrisy. You will surely see the stupidity without trying.

World leaders found themselves divided on how best to keep the world economy growing after the worst recession since the 1930s. They split between calls, mainly from the U.S., for more government stimulus to keep the world from slipping back into recession, and appeals from European countries and Japan for spending cuts and even tax hikes to avoid Greece-like near defaults.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy told reporters that President Barack Obama "clearly talked about the risks of debt and deficit" in the U.S.
First off, if Obama is clearly talking about the risks of debt and deficit, why is he so intent on constantly raising ours? The article even says that the calls were mainly coming from the US that more government stimulus is needed. Hello, that means higher debt and deficits, at no benefit to the people. And of course, that all leads to higher taxes, which I read somewhere else, that Obama had condemned at the current time (all the while pushing to pass cap-and-trade and after passing Obamacare, both of which cause taxes and living expenses to increase, thereby staving off economic recovery).

I still don't get why people think tax hikes are going to make things better. Have they paid no attention to history? I guess not. Yes, they need to lower spending, but they also need to lower taxes. When taxes are lower, industry thrives, which means unemployment drops, more workers are making more money, and the taxes are getting collected at a higher end number because more people are paying into the system. Higher taxes are oppressive to industry and economic recovery.

Can anyone help me with this question; how do so many incompetent people make it into leadership positions around the world?

Open-Minded Liberal

Yes, it sounds too good to be true, but it seems this one can think. It may have taken a while, but they got some of it. Turns out, they went from deriding 3%ters to supporting them and deriding the .gov. Short snippet below. Go read the whole thing. Some excellent points.

Three Percenter’s Mike Vanderboegh Against Clinton & The One Percenters | The Seminal:
"I don’t support political vandalism, but I do think the time has come for civil disobedience, general strikes, marches on DC, tax boycotts, and things of that peaceful nature.

We know, however, who is in the right and who is in the wrong if violence does take place, and the government of the United States is currently in the wrong, because it has done wrong time after time."

Obama to Grant Amnesty to Illegal Aliens by Executive Order?

No, I don't put it past this administration. They are masters at doing things and creating alphabet agencies which require answering to no one. I even heard about this on the radio this morning. They said that when the White House was contacted about it, it would neither confirm nor deny the allegations. Seems to me that's a confirmation in itself. It would fit with the way they are constantly doing things the people don't want done, and doing it behind closed doors. So much for transparency and accountability. As much as it saddens me, I believe what Longstreet says at the end of his article is true. The end will not be pretty. Below is a short snippet. Go read the whole thing.

INSIGHT on Freedom: Obama to Grant Amnesty to Illegal Aliens by Executive Order?:

"Rumors are flying and tempers are flaring in Washington, DC as rumors that President Obama intends to grant amnesty to nearly 20 million illegal aliens, already residing within the United States, with the stroke of his pen. It would take the form of a Presidential Executive Order. Outrage is spreading among the legal citizens of the US with the rapidity of a prairie fire in August.

Americans are concerned that by nothing more than the stroke of a pen Obama could grant the amnesty.

It was revealed recently that Obama has no intention of securing the southern border with Mexico until his Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill is passed. You know, the “Amnesty for Illegal Aliens bill.”"

More Proof That Firearms Restrictions Don't Prevent Crime or Shootings

True, most anyone who needs more proof hasn't paid attention to the rest that's out their, or has an agenda. Anyway, an interesting short read comparing one weekend in Chicago (restrictive firearms laws) to an entire year in Vermont (very few firearms laws).

Slow (or Fast) Two Weeks

To my regular readers, sorry for the lack of posts the past couple weeks. I've been working desperately to get my truck running again, which has involved pulling the cylinder head off to replace valves. It's been about all I can do to stay up to date on what's going on without posting. Got a few minutes now, so here are some links I would highly suggest.

First, two from Jennifer. The first is a comparison of the grievances listed in the Declaration of Independence to what our government is doing today. It's eye-opening. The second is really a warning/lamentation about what amounts to the death of the First Amendment.

Of course, most everyone has probably seen this, if you haven't take a look. Congressman Attacks Student. Can't remember who linked me to it, though I would guess Mike V. or Kate.

At first I thought Mike (link to his post)was a bit paranoid about this. Then I read about how they were training for major terrorist action in the U.S., and remembered how the DHS issued the document calling people like me possible domestic terrorists. Does make you wonder who they are training for.

Via Uncle, Breda has some thoughts and statistics about armed versus passive self-defense.

Kate asks an important question: Do you know where your POTUS is?

Also take a look at the Unintended Consequences over at the Cliffs of Insanity.

That's all for now. Hope to have some fresh material in the next day or two, as I'll be at a standstill waiting for parts for the truck. Still need to address an issue about which Lance e-mailed me a few weeks ago. More on that later.

The Age of Ignorance

Sadly, Longstreet is right on this one.

"One can only conclude that America finds herself in the current mess as a direct result of ignorance. “Ignorance of what,” you ask? I must answer, “Ignorance of practically everything.”"
I had a wonderful run-in with it today at work. Fella came up and asked if we take the Benefit Security Cards. I told him we didn't, and he said, "It's not EBT, it's FEMA." *begin shaking head*

EBT - Electronic Benefits Transfer

Yes, the government uses it for funds dispersal, which raises many concerns about it being used as an opiate for the masses in the future, as I have seen some others make mention of. Possibly far-fetched . . . maybe, but given what our government has shown itself to be capable of, maybe not. But I digress . . .

How to Give a Cat a Bath

I just stumbled upon this little bit of humor for the day, and knew I had to share it. It's definitely worth a read if you need a good laugh today, and I don't know anyone who doesn't, no matter what day it is.

The Price of Admission - Wilderness Rape Trees

Very few things in this world make me even think about taking the life of another human being. This is one of them. I don't care if the victims are here illegally in this case, because this is flat-out evil. If there is a reason to become a vigilante, this is it.

Freedom Outlaw


I love this concept. Are you a Freedom Outlaw? What kind(s)?

So, what exactly is a Freedom Outlaw?

The Coming Storm

Take a look at this map. Notice how the entire thing blackens as time passes, with little exception. As the fellow at survivalblog said, it's like the storm is growing darker and almost ready to hit. Are you ready?

America turns it’s back on the “American Family”

An excellent, though rather sobering read from Longstreet. He's right. Stop, look around you and consider how we got here. Then consider where we will be if we continue on this course. Below follows a short excerpt from his writing. It would behoove you to read the whole article, and as always, think about it.

INSIGHT on Freedom: America turns it’s back on the “American Family”:
"We have failed, as a people, to protect our families. We have, through social programs, and such, made it much easier to dissolve the family and to create something acceptable to the “socialist shadow government”, working behind the scenes in America, in order to provide the necessities for that group without actually working for it, nor providing the guidance of a nuclear family. The children coming out of such a 'mock-up' of a family have no way of knowing that their experience was anything less than normal and they create their own… and in so doing… perpetuate the rot at our core.

Here in America we have an entire underclass, and entire segment of American society, who are wards of the US government."

Control your credit

So, I just saw a commercial advertising a new website - controlyourcredit.gov.
Yes, it's .gov. As if they have any real understanding of credit and debt. Over 13 trillion in debt, and we are supposed to view them as a credible source for this information?

Yeah, I don't think so either.

Bite The Hand v-III

Via Mike, a good video to watch. Hey .gov . . . Are you listening?

One Reason I Like TN

Had an interesting experience today. It really started Tuesday.
While working, one of the county sheriff deputies, who is a daily customer, came up to the window. For the first time, I saw him wearing his sidearm, and commented on it cause it was a 1911.
So, today, I step out of the kiosk as he pulls up next to the door. I see his handgun on his passenger seat and mention it. A couple sentences later, he is handing me his sidearm (loaded) so I can see how the grips feel.
It's a full sized Para 1911 in .45. He had after-market grips on it, and for a .45, it felt good in my hands. Most are too big for me, which is why I have a .40 instead. I like his pistol.

This was all in a gas station parking lot. Now, on the other hand, this guy doesn't even know my name, much less whether or not I'm responsible in handling firearms. Of course, he didn't tell me it was loaded (I assumed so since it's his duty weapon), I follow the 4 rules and voila, no accidents. He didn't know that, though. So, I guess that concerns me a little, but I was too excited when he handed it to me to care at the time.

Here's the cool part - In a busy gas station lot, no one looked twice. Yeah, I like Tennessee. Now if we could just get the heat and humidity down.
