Insanity, thy name is Liberal

It has been a while since I have posted anything concerning liberals and their detachment from reality. Well, I just stumbled upon an article on the www.guns.com web site that has me convinced that New Jersey is not only inhabited by far too many intellectually challenged in-duh-viduals, but that all of those liberals have finally gone beyond redemption. Not simply in their inability to behave as reasonably normal human beings, but in their willingness to criminalize the slightest thing which troubles their little disturbed minds.

Are you ready for this? No, you are not. You may think you are ready, but I assure you that is not the case.

New Jersey has outlawed having the name "Gunn" or any other spelling that looks or sounds like "gun".  RTWFT (Read the whole effing thing) :



NJ sends out eviction notices to residents with the last name ‘Gunn’

 | by  
Over 500 residents in different cities across The Garden State were shocked after they received letters this week stating they had 30 days to find another home thanks to new legislation that will no longer allow residents in the state whose names promote violence.

“I was dumbfounded,” said Sheila Gunn, who has lived in New Jersey for over 40 years. “I thought it was a joke at first, but it wasn’t.”

According to the letters, state officials are making an effort to reduce violence in the state and there’s just no room for anything – or anyone – who does not promote peace.

“There were many officials at all levels in the state who felt like having a large population of residents with questionable names just wasn’t in line with the type of atmosphere we want to promote in New Jersey,” Middlesex County Department of Building and Land Settlements supervisor Jerry Osborne explained.

“We want people to feel free to live, work and play in New Jersey without the fear of something bad happening,” Osborne continued. “And when you have people running around with the last name Gunn – no matter how you spell it – it stirs feelings of fear in people, and that’s just not something we want here.”

While most who received the letters are still overwhelmed by the thought of being kicked out of the state over their names, others think it’s not such a bad idea.

“With everything that’s been going on lately, all the violence and shootings and such, yeah, I think it’s good to do whatever we can to make a difference,” Julie DePriest, a long-time resident of Paterson and mother of three, told WTF News 12. “I mean, I’ve got my kids to think about.”

Still, others think the idea is absurd.

Thompson Gunn, who has lived in the basement of his mother’s Newark home for nearly 12 years, says he understands what the state is trying to do and he’s all for reducing violence, but the focus is misguided.

“Some experts say that all of these different things are causing violence in today’s society,” Gunn said. “But I’m just not buying it. Violence is on the rise, yeah, but guns and so-called violent video games aren’t the problem.”

Gunn explained that he’s currently unemployed and regularly plays video games which some experts warn may promote violence.

“Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, Battlefield, all of those,” Gunn added. “I play every single day, sometimes eight, nine, ten hours a day, and I’ve never hurt anybody in my life.”

Gunn said that both he and his mother plan to move in two weeks.

However, for any of the 527 residents who received a letter but wish to stay in the state, there is another option. The state is giving them the opportunity to legally change their names. The paperwork for name changes must be submitted no later than April 15, and according to the letters, new names which still “promote violence” will not be accepted.

Those who opt to keep their names and leave the state have until April 21 to relocate. Osborne explained that because they realized it is a burden, various agencies across the state have pooled funds in order to pay for 65 percent of moving expenses for both individuals and families. Additionally, the state of Texas has stepped up and offered free housing for six months for displaced New Jersey residents looking for a more “Gunn-friendly” home.


I'd be very interested to know how many people in New Jersey are named "Hunter". And how much time they have before they have to leave.

Iran re-affirms its plan to destroy Israel

I indicated in my post "American Traitors", that Obama, Kerry Jarrett (who was born and lived in Iran) were negotiating to agree to Iran continuing to enrich uranium. IIRC, they already have enough centrifuges to produce weapons-grade uranium. If Iran is not stopped from getting more centrifuges - which would be necessary if they are going to produce fuel to operate nuclear power plants, which is what they _claim_ to be doing, in spite of possessing more than enough oil to power their country for the next century or two - then those additional centrifuges will simply be used to create more weapons-grade uranium for (gasp) more weapons.

In a post at Robert Spencer's Jihad Watch, Iran has again made it clear they intend to destroy Israel - and by extension, America, which they call "The Great Satan". Yes, the author of this latest threat is not a member of their government, per se, but neither was his statement corrected or disavowed by Iran's actual leaders. His militia, the Basij militia of Iran's Revolutionary Guards, is a group used, and encouraged in their activities, by Iran's leaders. He is merely parroting what the secular and religious leaders of Iran have been saying for many years.

So, have you any qualms remaining about the possibility that Israel has been spying on our government? Can you see where they might feel the need to determine in just what way Obama et al are betraying them at any particular point in time? I certainly do. Hopefully there is a highly-placed Jew or someone who sympathizes with Israel concerning Obama's willingness to see Israel damaged and/or destroyed. Someone close to Jarrett or someone else in the inner circle who can help.

Israel is the one country in the Middle East which is an actual democracy. Arab countries ruled for many centuries by clans and tribes are incapable of being led to democracy. It is foreign to them and not the way they wish to live or do business. Attempts to do so will end in disaster, as has happened with Iraq, and may soon in Afghanistan and elsewhere. The only reason I can see for fighting over there is to prevent the genocide and wholesale killing of Christians and other non-muslims. And, before you whine about America not being "the world's policeman", remember that America would still be ruled by Britain if France had not come to our aid.

The Under-rated Gift of Sanity

Captain Capitalism - the real capitalism, not this crony, over-regulated, EPA assaulted, bail out the Big Boys, brand of capitalism we have come to hate - has written an excellent post on how the brainwashing of the young, especially in our colleges and universities, has encouraged them to fantasize about their expectations upon graduation, only to run into the brick wall of reality.

Here is the address: http://captaincapitalism.blogspot.com/2015/03/the-underrated-gift-of-sanity.html

For those of you who don't trust links (which might send you to a virus-infested corpse of a web site), here is that post. It is well worth your time:

The Underrated Gift of Sanity

Permit me these examples three.

First, the closing of the all-women's college, Sweet Briar.  Sweet Briar last month announced that it would be closing this year.  This was greeted with screams and vitriol, claims dreams have been destroyed, and repleted with threats of lawsuits and protests from current day students, as well as alumni and professorial staff.

Never mind the mathematical reality that the liberal arts bubble is bursting.
Never mind they have 1 employee per 5 students.
And never mind this college runs horse stables, indicating insane financial mismanagement and mathematical ineptitude.

Reality doesn't matter to those affected by Sweet Briar's closing.  All that matters is what they were told, believed, and wanted.  And thus these two irreconcilable forces result in grief, anger, confusion, frustration, and stress.

Second, "girls hate jocks."

Or at least that's what my mother told me when I was a youngin'.  Couple that with the 90's decade long propaganda that women wanted kind, caring, sensitive men, and a generation of boys-now-men expended considerable energies during their teens and 20's pursuing women using strategies that were (in part) based on these flawed premises.

The results were entirely predictable - failure.  And not just failure, but failure with the same commensurate grief, anger, confusion, frustration, and stress that is currently plaguing the clueless people of Sweet Briar.

And finally, third, "age is just a number."

This is a precious quote from a British woman named Patricia who, despite being 64, thought her marriage to a 26 year old Tunisian man was going to last.

And why wouldn't she?

She was told by feminists, media, professors, and leftist politicians, that 50 is the new 20.  Age and beauty are merely social constructs.  And men who chase after women for looks are not just shallow, but flawed.

The only problem is reality did not care what politicians, feminists, media types, and professors told her.  2 million years of human evolution prompted the young Tunisian man to leave her, resulting in, once again, grief, anger, confusion, frustration, and stress.

We could go on, but the above three anecdotes point towards a crisis the United States and Western Civilization are slowly, but unavoidably wandering into.  A crisis of a deluded population crashing into the impenetrable wall of reality.

How our civilization became so deluded is somewhat complicated, but in hindsight explainable and understandable.  With unrivaled economic success due to free markets, freedom, and capitalism, Western Civilization advanced so quickly that the majority of the economic and biological problems that plagued humanity for the past 2 million years were resolved.  Hunger was eradicated.  Poverty was eradicated.  Even certain diseases were completely eradicated that entirely new ones were discovered because humans rarely lived as long in the past.  This resulted in a spoiled population that never really endured the hardships of true life, and worse, gave people with a lot of time on their hands, even more.

Idle minds are the devil's workshop, and go to work he did, for instead of being thankful for a life of ease and ample free time, people's egos got in the way and demanded more.  Now people were no longer satisfied with a good home cooked meal, they sought out the "injustice" of who precisely cooked that meal.  No longer were people satisfied that a rich guy invented a device that allowed them to communicate with people around the world for nearly free.  They were obsessed about him having more money, even obsessed about the color of his skin and the fact he was a man.  And no longer were people satisfied.  And no longer were people thankful for companies that created life saving devices and drugs, but insisted they were oppressed by these engines of innovation for they dared to charge for their services and dared to move to greener pastures.  In short, Western Civilization slid into becoming a spoiled brat, narcissistic, envious society where all that mattered was feeding their ego without the required work and accomplishment that would warrant it.

This insatiable desire to feed the ego without the commensurate work resulted in a group of opportunists who were only more than happy to feed society's ego at seemingly no cost.  To do this they created, out of whole cloth, false narratives and religions that the naive masses would swallow whole:

Sexism
Racism
Class warfare
"Evil corporations"
"You can't put a price on education"
"You go girl!"
"You can have it all!"
"Lean in!"
"Empowerment/Raising Awareness/
White/Male Privilege
Single moms are heroic
"50 is the new 20!"

and other outright lies

Worse, these charlatans put themselves in key points and positions within society effectively allowing them to brainwash and profit off of the rest of society:

Politicians
Media
Hollywood
Journalists
Professors
Feminists
Teachers
Activists
SJW's
Non-profits, and
NGO's

And so even with the benefit of stable and sane parents, even with the benefit of grounded peers, everybody, and I mean EVERYBODY within Western Civilization succumbed, one way or another, to at least ONE bit of erroneous and false propaganda.  One bit of false, erroneous propaganda that cost them precious years of their lives.

Millions of students, brainwashed by public school teachers, wasted trillions on stupid, worthless, and completelyunemployable degrees.

Millions of children were raised in divorced or single parent homes because feminists convinced women that was just as good an environment as a nuclear family.

Three generations of blacks were brainwashed to believe their last place socioeconomic position was the fault of white males, delivering a tragic mentality of defeatism that led to a self-fulfilling prophecy (but at least ensured democrat politicians had life long careers).

And three generations of women were led to believe their careers and government checks were more important than the human beings in their lives, only to find out too late upon their death beds that they had wasted their one shot at life (but again, at least some democrat politicians got their vote).

We can go on, but you get the point.  Everybody in Western Civilization in one capacity or another, was brainwashed to believe in a lie that just wasn't true.  And even though they may have believed the lie, it didn't change the fact reality doesn't care.  And this conflict between what they were told, what they believed and what reality ultimately delivered has caused nearly everyone untold grief, suffering, confusion, frustration, and anger.

But enter two coincidentally timed events:

1.  The development of the internet
2.  The Great Recession

The internet is amazing unto itself.  However, it has a unique trait that has the potential to undermine the charlatans and con artists posing as politicians, professors, teachers, feminists, etc.  It not only allows anybody to write anything they want, but it allows everybody in the world to view it.  In other words, the internet side steps the establishment guardians and censors of the MSM media.  This allows ordinary people to expose the corrupt people of our society and hopefully "wake up the masses"as to just how brainwashed they are, and to just what a tragedy is being perpetrated against them.

However, people in power do not give it up lightly.  And to protect themselves against the internet they have made it socially, professionally, politically, and economically for anybody to speak directly and bluntly about the truth.  And this "political correctness" is no joke.  With Mozilla, DongleGate, and doxxing, people (primarily on the left) only need to take public statements of a person, found on the internet, tell his/her employer about it and ruin their careers and financial livelihood forever.  Thus, even with a powerful tool like the internet at their disposal, most people obey like the sheep they are and dare not speak what they truly think in fear of losing their jobs.

Well...that was until The Great Recession anyway.

For while many people have a career or a family to worry about, The Great Recession made it so millions would never have a career and family to begin with.  So devastating and drawn out was this recession nearly 1.5 generations never succeeded much past college, and when you combine its severity with the fact the solution to the recession was to bail out those that caused it, any faith in "authority" or hope in a meritocracy had vanished.  And now an estimated 100 million people not only have nothing to lose, but a hatred for those who ruined their lives.

And they've taken to the internet.

The red pill, the Manosphere, the alt right, you name it, millions of people with millions of blogs, YouTube channels and podcasts have formed as the only, but growing beacon of sanity, empiricism and reality.  Everyday they highlight and point out the insanity they see, but the rest of the world doesn't as they're too absorbed in themselves and protective of their egos to do so.  And these internet rogues also point out the perpetrators who are responsible for it, profiling and shining a light on the endless list of politicians, feminists, professors, deans, activists, and others who are scrambling to save themselves.

However, in being the only bastion of truth, reality and sanity, this part of the internet faces a Herculean challenge.  Decades worth and trillions of dollars in brainwashing and lies have been propagated and incorporated into the minds of millions of people.  So successfully so, that even if you're trying to point out the truth to them, their egos have been so pampered and protected, their response is not only disbelief, but one of rage, anger, hatred, even assault (imagine telling a liberal arts major their degree is worthless, or telling a wimpy, but reliable chemical engineer male most women will pass him up for a drug dealing thug with muscles).  But this daunting challenge aside, it still doesn't change the fact that these people have to face a choice no matter how thorough and complete their brainwashing:

Continue to live in your deluded dream world, continue to chase and pursue after dreams that will never be,

or

accept the cold harsh reality that reality is.

To a sane person the choice is obvious, because there is no choice.  Reality is reality.  By definition choosing not to accept it is delusional and proof of a mental problem.  But if you've been brought up your entire life under lies and propaganda, and you value your ego more than the rest of society and the real world, and above all else, you're an intellectual weakling, you will likely continue to live the lie.

But as tempting as it is to stay in the warm, but false, comforts of pretty lies, there is one benefit to "taking the red pill" (as it were) and it's more valuable than all the promises of the charlatans and con-artists.

Sanity.

Understand no matter what the politicians, feminists, journalists and professors tell you, it's not true.  Their promises and your dreams that were based in them are never going to come to fruition.  So no matter how comforting and ego-protecting it is today, if you believe them and make life decisions based on them, you will ruin your life.  And not just by failing to achieve dreams that were never achievable in the first place, but the sheer torment you'll endure that is caused by the anger, confusion, frustration, stress and grief of living a lie (again, imagine the daily torment people with "Masters in English" are suffering in the labor market or women who believe they could "have it all" are suffering in the dating/marriage market)

But if you give up your deluded dreams and accept to live in reality, you get the gift of sanity.  The KNOWING why things happened the way they did in the past, the knowledge of how things are likely to work in the future, and never being confused, frustrated, or angry again.  Imagine if you were told what women REALLY liked when you were 13.  Imagine if you were told how corporate America really worked.  Imagine if you were told about the economic realities of choosing the right major.

To have that you only need to give up your dreams.

Which is a good thing because those dreams were worthless because they were never going to happen anyway.

Taxi Cab Depressions

I am remiss in my failure to link to this person's blog, which I first read several weeks ago. It is exceptionally articulate and insightful. The main reason is sloth. The ljk keys on my laptop do not work for some reason. Do you have any idea how tough it is to choose your words in such a way as to refrain from using them? (The preceding sentence is one of the few I have written that doesn't require those keys.)

So. Read "BlacLies Matter". Go to this link and read it all. It is long, but well worth it. Then scroll down and read "The Pig Trap". You won't be sorry. These are two very important political posts which provide a good look at the current state of affairs in this country. 

After you've done that, take the time to read some of his funnier posts as well. His wit is amazing.

AMERICAN TRAITORS: a nuclear Iran, operated by an islamic dictatorship, chosen and supported over Israel

Obama and Kerry - indoctrinated, trained, and groomed for office by the Communist machine.

It is patently obvious by now that Obama was raised as a child by a mother, grandparents, and - more than likely - by a biological father (and possibly a molester, as he was known to have "short eyes") named Frank Marshall Davis, all of whom had dedicated communist ties. These people were demonstrably in favor of Communism over the liberty, freedom, and open market philosophy of American Republicanism (as in the American republic espoused in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, not as "Republicans" - a disease that has much in common with Democrats and the Left).

Kerry, a spoiled elitist, raised in a culture of money and privilege, apparently was targeted for Communist indoctrination also, much as was  McCain by the North Vietnamese and the Chinese during his internment in Hanoi. And, before you denigrate this statement, try judging it by Kerry's and McCain's actions, their behavior, rather than their speech, their statements. Think of the traitorous behavior and statements made by Kerry against his fellow soldiers in 'Nam, his association with that traitorous bitch Fonda. She had somewhat of an excuse, being as vaporous an airhead, an ignorant and stupid twit as she is. She obviously has an IQ somewhere significantly south of 100. (How I wish I could make her read this. This truth would absolutely infuriate the skanky bitch.)

So. We know that Obama and Kerry are both Communist indoctrinated. We know they have both willingly absorbed and committed to this indoctrination, and act according to their accepted communist beliefs. We know that they both have declared their disdain and hatred for America and what our Constitution stand for. We know for a fact that they have committed completely to the philosophy of the Left, its collectivism and hatred of the conservative support of the rights of the individual.

What we have now just had proven to us is their desire to see America destroyed. To see the American exceptionalism as a culture destroyed  by both communism and the violent death cult of islam which Obama and Kerry have both chosen in preference over the protection of this country as a republic created to support not only the rights of the individual, but a free and open market economy designed to bring about a healthy and vibrant nation.

The Prime Minister of Israel, "Bibi" Netanyahu, gave a speech today to our Congress in which he spoke to the need to stop Iran developing as a nation in possession of nuclear weapons, a nation which has repeatedly announced its intention of destroying both Israel and America.

And yet, Obama and Kerry both work to realize this stated intention of Iran and it's "religious (actually a death cult, not a true religion) dictatorship. While Israel seeks to stop Iran from realizing its nuclear ambitions, Obama and Kerry - both deserving of the punishment awarded to such deadly traitors - seek to help Iran reach the goal of being a country possessed of the very nuclear weapons it has sworn to use against both America and Israel.

These two traitors deserve the punishment of death, for assisting a country which has sworn to destroy America and its people in attaining that goal. And, yes, I hope that the NSA and other agencies which illegally read each and every one of our private writings, as well as our open blogs, does read and make note of what I am posting here. There is no other determination that can be made other than the fact that both Obama and Kerry are traitors to America and our Constitution when they support the destruction of America, when they fail to do everything possible to protect us, but rather seek to aid our enemy in becoming able to realize the destruction of our country and our population, along with that of Israel, one of our staunchest allies.

As a blog that is so little known, so little read as mine will likely be ignored by the NSA (et al), I doubt that anything will befall me other than a moment's laughter at the thought that any agency would even pay attention to this. Nonetheless, I am willing to risk it. These two scum, these traitorous asswipes deserve the worst that could possibly happen to them. Please read this post by Allen Roth at Secure America Now:


 
Fellow Patriot,
Did you see Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech?!

Israel's leader stood strong as he spoke before a full Congress about the global dangers of a Nuclear Iran, and how does the Obama Administration react? By immediately calling his speech "no new ideas, all rhetoric." 

Yes. You read that correctly. Even after Netanyahu praised the President and the White House for America's unwavering alliance, the Executive Branch still chooses a dangerous future with Iran over our historical relationship with Israel. 

At this very moment, Secretary of State John Kerry is in Switzerland “negotiating” with the Iranians. He is working on a bad, back-door deal that will put the security of all Americans and Democracy at risk. This is unacceptable.
As Netanyahu stated, “a decade may seem like a short time in political terms, but it is the blink of an eye for the life of a nation.” Our fight to stop terrorism and its largest state sponsor needs every bit of support it can get. 
We will continue to stand with Israel, the only true ally of America in the Middle East. We will continue to work towards a peaceful future, one that focuses on the security of the American people and denounces our enemies.
Thank you,
Allen Roth

Our Congress is populated by spineless people who refuse to act against the politicians and bureaucrats who work toward the destruction of our country as a republic. So, I envision no help from that quarter. I do not know how we can vouchsafe our country from what the Left has planned. It may be that there is no help in sight. We may have to rise up as insurgents against what the Left - currently in control - has in mind for us. Only time will tell.

Risk of death from legally owned firearms

Yes, it has been over a month since my last post. Surgery on my back and other issues has been part of the reason. Today, however, I read on another blog of the fear fostered by those who hate firearms, wherein such hoplophobes (people who are afraid of weapons) claim ridiculous, lying statistics about how many people die from firearms each year in America.

A quick search at the CDC - the Center for Disease Control, a federally funded organization which studies diseases such as the bubonic plague, ebola, and other infectious diseases - indicates that only 505 accidental deaths were caused by forearms in 2013 (the last date that data for such deaths was available on their own web site.* It should be noted that the CDC is not funded to do research on the number of gun injuries or deaths that occur. Their mandate is research concerning infectious diseases only. Their publication of statistics concerning guns is a strictly political move encouraged and allowed by the presidential administrations in control at the time. * ). The number is - of course - higher if you include intentional deaths due to firearms - such as gang-related criminal shootings, police shootings of innocent people, and suicides. Even then, the number is lower than 5000, with the majority of those being criminal shootings.



Years ago, the haters who got together to create the Brady Center for Handgun Control (which changed its name once or twice to hide what it was doing), and other leftist groups trying to make the possession of firearms illegal in our country, published completely fake, made-up, statistics for handgun injuries in the home. They claimed that handguns kept in the home were four times as likely to cause injury or death as in homes where there was no handgun present. Simple study and research proved that this statistic was a lie, that the numbers were grossly inflated by this group, in an attempt to make everyone believe their lie.

If we accept and permit the use of the number 5000 (per the CDC) as to how many deaths there were (either that year, or each year on average) due to the misuse of firearms - from either criminal misuse, police misuse (as in the shooting of innocent people), or suicide (as opposed to deaths from guns in the home, which were far fewer), we discover an interesting fact: it is either 0.125% or 0.25% the number of deaths due to medical misadventure - deaths due to mistakes made by doctors, medical staff, or hospitals. 5000 deaths as opposed to either 200,000 or 400,000, depending upon whether you accept the higher or lower figure provided by those seeking an accurate answer versus the "politically correct" answer. So, medical deaths were sat least four times more likely to kill you than a gun in the home. The exact opposite of what the Bradley cretins were claiming.

Someone - Sam Clemens (Mark Twain), was it? - said there are "lies, damned lies, and statistics". So many so-called "statistics" are made-up, totally false numbers, that quoting them almost immediately brands you as a liar, as someone trying to mislead you from the truth. Instead, let us simply say that a very small fraction of gun deaths are due to guns in the home or guns in the hands of legal gun owners. Not that even a small number is desirable, at least, but neither are deaths from any other kinds of accidents. Cars in the home kill far more people that guns in the home, by a very wide margin.

So, whether or not you like guns, own a gun, or carry a gun, it is demonstrably wrong to believe the fools who insist that they are unsafe, or responsible for so many deaths. Cars are far more likely to kill, yet they are no more inherently unsafe than guns. In fact, there are certainly far more cars unsafe due to poor maintenance than guns due to poor maintenance or construction. Even the misuse of guns is less likely to cause death than the misuse of an automobile. Consider how many more vehicles there are than guns, and how many more times cars are used than guns, and that assertion proves itself.

Training in the proper handling and use of a gun is as important as driver education. Cars being so much more dangerous than guns, and certainly responsible for far more deaths, it might be suggested that driver education should be mandatory in our high schools, and that such training be required before a driver's license can be issued. Although it is certainly encouraged and offered in many, it is not mandatory in most schools, even though most states do require passing a test demonstrating a small amount of competency in driving.

Education in the proper and safe handling of guns - especially handguns - is indeed mandatory in most states which allow concealed carry of firearms. Most states require training before they will issue a permit for concealed carry, followed by testing to indicate - again, only a small amount of - competency in use. Many states also demand training before a person can get a hunting license permitting the use of a rifle, shotgun, or handgun for hunting.

Much training in the use of either a vehicle or a firearm is often administered by a parent. Some firearm training is given by a sibling, or a friend familiar with the proper handling and use of a gun. This is as it should be. When the government gets involved in such things, the training is all too often administered by someone who is often missing the demonstrated experience that should be present. How many teachers, in any school from Kindergarten to post-doctorate college classes, has had experience in the field they teach? From math through engineering, from medicine to nuclear physics, how many professors or instructors have real-world experience in their area? It should be a requirement - if such training is a requirement for graduation with any sort of degree or diploma in the subject.

While it is probably true that many folks who own firearms do not have as much training, experience, or practice in the use of their weapon as they should, many of us who own and carry firearms daily have indeed taken the time - and paid the cost - to get training. Many of us have a good deal of experience, whether it be in safely carrying and using when hunting or practicing on a range, or through having worked in security or law enforcement positions, as peace officers, game wardens, and security personnel.

Both logic and demonstrated fact indicate that the risk of injury and death from firearms is a tiny fraction of what is claimed by anti-gun zealots. Those hoplophobes are ready and willing to lie their a**es off about the safety of owning and carrying a firearm.The risk of death is quite low, and almost non-existent if the gun owner has any training whatsoever. Especially if that gun owner has passed on his knowledge of the safe use and keeping of firearms to his wife and children.

The Gates of Vienna

As anyone who has visited this little orphaned blog already know, I have been shamefully absent for quite some time, only recently returned to make a few current posts. Just yesterday, I was reminded by the author of the widely followed WRSA (Western Rifle Shooters Association) that this is the time when another excellent blog, The Gates of Vienna - a very important blog, especially considering my dislike for all thing islamic - has a brief fund-raising drive to help keep it active. I donated (using the "Tip Jar" on their home page (http://gatesofvienna.net) and I really hope anyone who happens to read this will, too. The couple that run the blog are good people, and are committed to making the blogosphere aware of the threat to Western civilization that is islam.

Allow me to remind you that I refuse to capitalize names and words that I don't respect.

The Gates of Vienna refers to the battle, in 1683, when Jan Sobieski, the king of Poland, joined forces with Leopold, the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, and defeated the Turkish Ottoman Empire, muslims seeking to rule the whole of Europe. For quite a few reasons, some of which can be read here , the Ottoman Empire had been successful at taken large bites out of the Holy Roman Empire and also of those parts of Europe which were separate.

While much of Europe was playing the game that modern-day Europe - and to a lesser extent, our government here in America - is playing, one of appeasement, of begging for a negotiated peace from the muslims, each country hoping to be the last to be "eaten" (by riots, terrorism, and demographic jihad today as opposed to the open warfare they faced back then), Jan Sobieski was bright enough to understand that appeasement simply cannot work with an ideology that demands your slavery or your death - or both.

So he allied his army with that of Leopold, along with a relatively small number of troops from Vienna itself, and this amalgamation defeated the muslims, stopping them - at the gates of Vienna. Leopold is given credit for the defeat of the Ottoman army, but it is extremely unlikely he would have fought and won, had not Sobieski brought both his troops and his willingness to enter the fray.

The authors of the blog site, The Gates of Vienna, work hard to keep us all informed of what is happening in the European clash with islam. They know that, should Europe fall, as it appears it might, it will make it incredibly more difficult for America to avoid succumbing to the forces of islam, too. America is already severely handicapped by strong Progressive forces (aided and abetted by the Democratic Party) and a President who not only favors muslims over America, islam over any other culture, but who also is extremely desirous of seeing America humbled before islam and the rest of the world.

The threat is real. As it is such a successful weapon in the Progressives' arsenal, the Left pretends the threat offered by islam is simply "conspiracy theory". Any thought or opinion they wish to discredit, they name a "conspiracy", first. To paraphrase a quote, "Those whom the Left would destroy, they first call mad."

As I have written many times already, a study of the qu'ran, the "holy" book of the muslims, of islam, tells the world very plainly what their intentions are: a Universal Caliphate where everyone is either a muslim, a slave, or dead. There is no "radical" islam, there are no "radical" muslims. There are only true, orthodox muslims, who follow the commands, the dictates of the qu'ran, the directions of the hadith. There is only islam, where there is no law, no government but sharia. Where there is no G-d but allah, and mohammed (piss be unto him) is his prophet. islam is there for everyone to see, quite plainly and honestly, right out in the open - you have only to look to ISIS/ISIL and you see islam demonstrated "in all its gory" (not glory) truth. ISIS is the distillation of the pure and true islam, as commanded by mohammed, the pedophile, the raper of nine-year-old little girls, who made up a fake religion to attract arab men into an army which was promised female slaves to rape, abuse, and sell ("war brides"), and little girls to "marry" - and then rape, abuse, and keep as chattel, as slaves to their lusts and pride.

Please do read the posts at The Gates of Vienna. In spite of what the Left will tell you, shrilly and with a full complement of lies and deception, what is posted at GOV is the frightening truth.
