GUN CONTROL or POLITICAL DONATIONS?

It amazes me how the President, Congress and the Washington D.C. valley of Consultants and Hacks believe that all American voters are stupid. Watching the Progressives with money and the Hollywood leaches manipulate Obama and the Senate is like watching Howdy Dowdy Time.

Our Royal President Stages Hollywood type events using children as dupes to further divide our people. He knows that his Gun Control proposals will never be approved by his own Progressives in the Senate. If they awarded an Oscar for the “Best Liar in a Political Address”, Obama would make Clinton look like a Hillbilly from Arkansas.

I realize that my window of opportunity to watch politics is somewhat broader than most. I started to school in 1936 when things were really bad in America. We could pray and we were proud to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in school. We never had police or guards in the schools. We did not have or need the ACLU to create chaos at the schools. We did not have television to provide programs that had to be rated for viewing. We had radio and the library to assist the teachers in educating us with decent language. We had commentators which actually presented “ALL” of the news “Fair and Balanced”.

We had guns long before we had “R” Rated movies, age limit ratings and sexually explicit commercials on television. I raised my family before the violent Video games arrived. The violence I remember from my childhood was watching Buster Crabbe and Tom Mix eliminate the bad guys in the movies. My first memory of R rated movies was in my thirties.

I never heard of a school shooting until the event in Colorado shocked the nation just a few years ago. We have had guns long before our forefathers approved the Second Amendment to our Constitution. We had decent language on the radio, TV and the movies for most of the time this country has existed and we still have the same rights of free speech that appeared in the 1700’s.

We used to have a Congress that functioned and protected states and people’s rights. Now their only job is passing out freebies to get re-elected. In 1942 all Americans rallied together with the phrase, “Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition”. Today all we hear from all politicians is, “Forget the Lord and Pass out more Pork”.

What we have created to make this a better place to live is organizations like the ACLU, ACORN and a Supreme Court that can’t agree on what the same words in our Constitution and Bill of Rights mean. If it is politically incorrect it must be bad. Politics and Money run the world, to hell with the Constitution scream the activists. Even our President says it is outdated.

Now the prime objective of the President and the Senate is “Gun Control” and “Immigration Issues”. After spending four years stuffing Obamacare down our throats they continue to ignore the real problems in America. They now intend to make legal gun ownership illegal. At the same time they intend to make illegal immigrations legal. I really wonder if anyone in Washington will ever face the fact that no “JOBS” was the problem when Obama was elected and it appears now that nothing is planned to address this until 2016.

Just think of the progress we have made in my lifetime. Kids can’t pray in school anymore. You are weird if you are patriotic. You are a threat if you own a gun. We have full police departments in our schools. Talk of arming teachers is being conducted. Politicians will not send their kids to public schools. Your doctor will soon be required to ask you if you own a gun when you get your annual finger wave. WOW we really have progressed haven’t we?

Our President has asked us to be civil, yet he has increased gun ownership during his first four years to over double the number of guns possessed before he was elected to save us from George Bush.

By the way, he has not asked the entertainment industry to stop making violent movies and TV programs that actually teach children how to use guns to actually kill people. It’s funny, I have never seen a commercial or program from the National Rifle Association that shows kids how to kill people but they are being made the enemy, why?

For real gun violence watch your kid’s video games that really show them how to kill with guns, knives, cars and even baseball bats. They rate their performance and encourage them to improve their kill rate scores.

Why were these industries ignored if we really desire to stop violence, “POLITICAL DONATIONS”? Progressives do not get money from the NRA, so trash guns and ignore violence training.

That’s the Obama/Biden/Reed and Polosi way.   

I would be remiss if I did not re-state a previous comment about gun control. To the NRA and the Congressional republicans, “Weapons of war are not required to hunt or protect your family.”  After analyzing Obama’s speech that caused another panic to buy guns and ammunition, I need to add another word to my quote above. Remove the period and add “, yet”.  behind the word family above.

GUN CONTROL or HOW TO INCREASE GUN SALES?

Does anyome besides me have trouble trying to determine Obama’s real objective after his latest news conference this morning? After he armed the Mexican drug dealers one would think he should be more careful arming unhappy freedom loving Americans.

Why do politicians play emotional gymnastics to make sure they can get re-elected? Watching President Obama use children to seek political cover makes me sick. Who in their right mind believe a child wrote the letters he used to build his latest political smokescreen. It is more than obvious to sane people the entire episode today was to increase political pressure to support his executive orders that usurp the Constitution. Why can’t he just be honest one time when he continues his quest to change the rules that will eventually wreck our Republic form of government that he despises?

Being a native Texan I may have some views radically different from others. I joined the Navy at 17 shortly after World War II. I had never owned a gun and had never seen a gun in our family home. I owned a BB gun like most kids in the late 1930’s and early 1940”s. Immediately after Boot Camp, I was assigned to serve in aviation ordinance. For the next two years my daily task was to remove machine guns and cannons from aircraft and clean them and re-install them. Once each month we cleaned every rifle, shotgun and pistol that was used in training at the gun range. This required that each weapon be test fired which usually took one entire day to perform. I probably shot more guns by the time I was 19 than 99% of today’s population.

Over my lifetime I did hunt game birds and deer with weapons that were owned by others. Hunting never provided me with the pleasure that others seemed to enjoy. I have always understood that control of game population is necessary and I have no problem with people legally hunting or fishing. By the way, until the politicians decided to ignore enforcing our laws, we never had serious gun problems or the need to protect ourselves in most of America.

We have no need to have individuals owning guns designed for war or the unnecessary violence we are bombarded with on TV and in the movies. These two things are the reason we have the crime and crazy people problems of today. Everyone knows this and nothing has been done to stop this madness yet. Congress just has no desire to do anything that might get them defeated in the next election.

I retired to live in rural east Texas over 20 years ago where hunting and fishing is expected. Until I retired I never owned a rifle, shotgun or pistol. Having worked in 32 countries and 49 states, I never felt threatened unless I was in New York, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Chicago, Miami, Saudi Arabia, Algeria or Houston. I never felt threatened in Denmark, Europe, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Mexico, Canada or Hong Kong just to list a few.   

A few years ago I purchased a single shot 22 children’s rifle. I doubt that many Americans know they make rifles for children. I also bought varmint ammunition as I had no desire or intent to kill anything. Just chase away destructive squirrels that were chewing my wife’s Christmas wiring.

I now own a 410 shotgun, a 22 repeating rifle and a 28 revolver in addition to the single shot 22. I own a box of ammo for each but the only weapon I have ever shot is the children’s 22 rifle. Why, my next door neighbor, who owned a virtual arsenal of every type of gun imaginable and enough ammo to defend a fort, convinced me that I needed to protect my property and life as gun control was imminent.

What prompted me to write this article is that I need to buy a box of 22 Varmint shells. I was preparing to go to the local gun store nearby until I read in the weekly paper that the store had sold every gun and box of ammo they had. It also revealed that they were getting calls from several states to buy guns and ammo that they think that a small town gun shop in the east Texas woods might still have in stock.

This motivated me to possibly put a new twist on the gun control issue. Obama disrupted morning TV again today to create his latest gun crisis that was summarized by his token white Vice President. I wish I had kept track of all the hundreds of crisis events Obama has used to destroy my freedoms.

He has accomplished two new records for America. He has divided the people and appears to desire another civil war to achieve his agenda. He has also been responsible for selling more guns and ammunition to Americans that can be used for civil strife than every other President since Lincoln.

Using children to promote his agenda is the most hypocritical thing he continues to do. This would be viewed as child abuse or violation of child labor laws in most civilized countries. What makes it even worse is these poor children will have to pay for the economic train wreck he is hoping for.

One thing is certain the poor kids he uses as supporters to promote his agenda, will hopefully someday remember that they did not vote for him. What is really scary is, if he could have reduced the voting age to six, he would now be ruler of his own Kingdom instead of a lame duck President. Don’t count him out yet, this may be his next Executive Order?

Hopefully history will recognize that Obama is the slickest con man who ever lived. No wonder Slick Willy is so awe-struck by his performances. Clinton is smart enough to know that Obama will not surpass him when history reports him to even be worse than Carter who barely beat him.

DETROIT

 

 


 

By Frosty Wooldridge

For 15 years, from the mid 1970’s to 1990, I worked in Detroit , Michigan .  I watched it descend into the abyss of crime, debauchery, gun play, drugs, school truancy, car-jacking, gangs, and human depravity.  I watched entire city blocks burned out.  I watched graffiti explode on buildings, cars, trucks, buses, and school yards.  Trash everywhere!

Detroiters walked through it, tossed more into it, and ignored it.  Tens of thousands, and then hundreds of thousands today exist on federal welfare, free housing, and food stamps!

With Aid to Dependent Children, minority women birthed eight to 10, and in one case, one woman birthed 24 children as reported by the Detroit Free Press, all on American taxpayer dollars.

A new child meant a new car payment, new TV, and whatever mom wanted.  I saw Lyndon Baines Johnson’s ‘Great Society’ flourish in Detroit . If you give money for doing nothing, you will get more hands out taking money for doing nothing.

Mayor Coleman Young, perhaps the most corrupt mayor in America , outside of Richard Daley in Chicago , rode Detroit down to its knees…  He set the benchmark for cronyism, incompetence, and arrogance.  As a black man, he said, “I am the MFIC.” The IC meant “in charge”.

You can figure out the rest.   Detroit became a majority black city with 67 percent African-Americans.

As a United Van Lines truck driver for my summer job from teaching math and science, I loaded hundreds of American families into my van for a new life in another city or state.

Detroit plummeted from 1.8 million citizens to 912,000 today.  At the same time, legal and illegal immigrants converged on the city, so much so, that Muslims number over 300,000.  Mexicans number 400,000 throughout Michigan , but most work in Detroit .  As the whites moved out, the Muslims moved in.

As the crimes became more violent, the whites fled. Finally, unlawful Mexicans moved in at a torrid pace.    Detroit suffers so much shoplifting that grocery stores no longer operate in many inner city locations.  You could cut the racial tension in the air with a knife!

Detroit may be one of our best examples of multiculturalism: pure dislike, and total separation from America .

Today, you hear Muslim calls to worship over the city like a new American Baghdad with hundreds of Islamic mosques in Michigan , paid for by Saudi Arabia oil money.  High school flunk out rates reached 76 percent last June, according to NBC’s Brian Williams.  Classrooms resemble more foreign countries than America .  English?  Few speak it!  The city features a 50 percent illiteracy rate and growing.

Unemployment hit 28.9 percent in 2009 as the auto industry vacated the city.  In Time Magazine’s October 4, 2009, “The Tragedy of Detroit: How a great city fell, and how it can rise again,” I choked on the writer’s description of what happened. “If Detroit had been ravaged by a hurricane, and submerged by a ravenous flood, we’d know a lot more about it,” said Daniel Okrent.  “If drought, and carelessness had spread brush fires across the city, we’d see it on the evening news every night.”

Earthquake, tornadoes, you name it, if natural disaster had devastated the city that was once the living proof of American prosperity, the rest of the country might take notice.

But Detroit , once our fourth largest city, now 11th, and slipping rapidly, has had no such luck.  Its disaster has long been a slow unwinding that seemed to remove it from the rest of the country.

Even the death rattle that in the past year emanated from its signature industry brought m ore attention to the auto executives than to the people of the city, who had for so long been victimized by their dreadful decision making.”

As Coleman Young’s corruption brought the city to its knees, no amount of federal dollars could save the incredible payoffs, kick backs, and illegality permeating his administration.  I witnessed the city’s death from the seat of my 18-wheeler tractor trailer because I moved people out of every sector of decaying Detroit .

“By any quantifiable standard, the city is on life support. Detroit ‘s treasury is $300 million short of the funds needed to provide the barest municipal services,” Okrent said.  “The school system, which six years ago was compelled by the teachers’ union to reject a philanthropist’s offer of $200 million to build 15 small, independent charter high schools, is in receivership.  The murder rate is soaring, and 7 out of 10 remain unsolved.  Three years after Katrina devastated New Orleans , unemployment in that city hit a peak of 11%. In Detroit , the unemployment rate is 28.9%.

That’s worth spelling out: twenty-eight point nine percent.”  At the end of Okrent’s  report, and he will write a dozen more about Detroit, he said, “That’s because the story of Detroit is not simply one of a great city’s collapse, it’s also about the erosion of the industries that helped build the country we know today.  The ultimate fate of Detroit will reveal much about the character of America in the 21st century.  If what was once the most prosperous manufacturing city in the nation has been brought to its knees, what does that say about our recent past?  And if it can’t find a way to get up, what does that say about our future?”

As you read in my book review of Chris Steiner’s book, “$20 Per Gallon”, the auto industry won’t come back.  Immigration will keep pouring more, and more uneducated third world immigrants from the Middle East into Detroit , thus creating a beachhead for Islamic hegemony in America .  If 50 percent illiteracy continues, we will see more homegrown terrorists spawned out of the Muslim ghettos of Detroit . Illiteracy plus Islam equals walking human bombs.

You have already seen it in Madrid , Spain ; London , England and Paris , France with train bombings, subway bombings and riots.  As their numbers grow, so will their power to enact their barbaric Sharia Law that negates republican forms of government, first amendment rights, and subjugates women to the lowest rungs on the human ladder.  We will see more honor killings by upset husbands, fathers, and brothers that demand subjugation by their daughters, sisters and wives.  Muslims prefer beheadings of women to scare the hell out of any other members of their sect from straying.  Multiculturalism: what a perfect method to kill our language, culture, country, and way of life.

I PRAY EVERYONE THAT READS THIS REALIZES THAT IF WE DON’T STAND UP, AND SCREAM AT WASHINGTON , AND OUR STATE, CITY, AND LOCAL LEADERS THIS IS WHAT AWAITS THE REST OF AMERICA .  IF YOU FOLLOW THE NEWS AT ALL YOU KNOW THIS HAS HAPPENED IN ENGLAND , AND FRANCE AND SPAIN ..

IF YOU THINK THIS IS JUST A BUNCH OF HOOEY AND YOU FEEL NO DUTY TO FIGHT FOR THIS COUNTRY, THEN I’M SORRY, I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT WILL TAKE FOR YOU TO STAND AND FIGHT.

AN OLD TEXAS STORY

A Texan accidentally ran a stop sign and got pulled over by a local policeman.

He provides the cop with his drivers license, insurance papers and his Concealed Carry Permit (CCW).

The cop said, “Okay, Mr. Smith, I see your CCW permit. Are you carrying today”?

Mr. Smith replied, “Yes I am”.

“Well then, you better tell me what you are carrying?”

Smith says, “Well I have a .357 revolver in my inside coat pocket. There is a 9mm semi-automatic in the glove box. I have a .22 magnum in my right boot.”

“Okay” the cop says. “Anything else?”

“Yeah, back in the trunk, there’s an AR15 and a shotgun. That about it.”

The cop says, “Are you on the way to a gun range….?”

Smith says, “Nope.

The cop then says, “What are you afraid of?”

Smith responds, “Not a thing in the world.”
