Lethal Weapon - your automobile

At the Silicon Graybeard's blog, I learned of a post by Michael Z. Williamson at his blog, The Sacred Cow Slaughterhouse. It was called "We Need to Regulate Cars the Way We Regulate Guns". An excellent transposition of the regulations that apply - or which the Left and the Marxists in the White House and Congress want to soon apply - to firearms, written to apply to automobiles. I probably don't need to add this, but for the cheap seats: it's tongue-in-cheek.

Considering that there are many, many more deaths in cars, by auto accident, drunk drivers, suicide (yes, people do kill themselves in their cars, sometimes killing innocent people along with them), and even the odd homicide with an automobile, it seems logical that the government and all progressive citizens would want much tighter control of cars, perhaps even to ban many of them. They are already registered, so confiscating them in the case of a ban of certain types would be simple. Government "repo", as it were.

Lots of children have been killed, maimed, and injured in motor vehicle accidents, so - let's do it for the children, OK? Who needs a vehicle with more than four cylinders? Who needs a vehicle with a 20 gallon gas tank? Who needs an engine with a 400 cubic inch displacement? Or a turbo or supercharger?
Or an evil-looking spoiler, hood scoop, or air dam? Who needs a Chevy Volt which could burn you to death, or burn your garage and house down?

So, as they say, RTWT. It is well written and quite logical - if you use government and Marxist (but I repeat myself) "logic", that is.

Then, keep in mind that Michael Z. Williamson is also a science fiction author of a number of extremely well-written (and entertaining) books. Then tend toward the libertarian side of the debate, but he presents it in a painless and enjoyable fashion that you will find difficult to put down, if you enjoy science fiction. You can find them at your local library, or here:  http://www.baenebooks.com/s-112-michael-z-williamson.aspx

He really is a superb writer. Don't pass him up.

Hamas recruiting poster

While muslim  men  males who cannot get a woman are willing to use each other for sex, or are willing to die as a suicide bomber because they will then be able to frolic with 72 virgin houri (is that the origin of the word "whore"?), some young muslim men don't want to choose either of those options.

These more "discriminating" young men choose to take the path which Mohammed took: pederasty. Also known as pedophilia, sexual interest in children. The above photograph is of a group of young muslims belonging to the terrorist organization known as Hamas. You know them - the organization in political and physical control of Gaza, where the so-called "Palestinians" live. At least until the U.N. is able to force the Israelis off of the little land that remains to them in the Middle East.

So, instead of having sex with each other (or perhaps, in addition to that), they are allowed to marry child brides. Oh, come on. You didn't think that was a photo of a bunch of muslim older brothers taking their little sisters to their First Communion, did you? Or did you imagine they were taking their dates to a Jon Benet Ramsey Look-Alike contest?

Daniel Greenfield, of Sultan Knish blogging fame, wrote an article called "Islam Was Born Out Of Child Abuse And Rape"you? In it, he relates, so accurately,

"Islam was not only born out of the rape of Aisha, but out of the rape and slavery of countless women captured by Mohammed's forces. The rape and abuse of those women was a recruitment tool for Islam. While muslims who fight to conquer and subjugate non-muslims are promised 72 virginal demon women in paradise, for many of the practically minded, that was not enough incentive. They wanted their reward now. Mohammed's forces looted the property of those they conquered and subjugated. But they also kidnapped and sexually abused their wives and daughters."

Read the whole article. As I have tried to do in previous posts, it gives you a glimpse of the real Islam. Orthodox Islam, where child rape, infant rape, the killing of young girls, daughters, wives and rape victims is a point of "honor" for the scum who are orthodox muslim males. Males who truly believe that  "women are for making sons. Beardless boys (bacha bereesh) are for pleasure." Although they certainly aren't above using female children instead. Islam, where a muslim male is permitted to place his penis between the thighs of a child - even an infant - as long as he does not penetrate her (or him).

Yes, I know this is crude and disgusting. So is believing that Islam is anything other than a disgusting and perverted death cult.  The notion of "Coexisting" with Islam is sick and disgusting. And stupid, since Islam absolutely refuses to coexist with any other religion, culture, or political system. They will pretend to do so just until they are in a position to subjugate the rest of us, the way they subjugate their women, children, and each other, but their very Qur'an and Hadith explain that the Universal Caliphate is their ultimate goal, where you either submit (the literal translation of the word "Islam"), become a slave ("dhimmitude"), or you die.

Gun confiscation-how it may go down

I just finished listening to a police officer from Missouri talking about how he envisioned the government implementing gun confiscation, secondary to whatever new laws may come out of D.C. He said that he thought it would not happen in a door-to-door search as it did in New Orleans after Katrina. He said he believed it would happen either by vehicle checkpoints or by warrants issued in your specific name.

Let's think about this for a moment. In Texas, they are already doing checkpoints, supposedly to locate and identify gang members. They stop them, check ID, photograph gang "tats", and maybe even arrest any they find who have active warrants. In the Southern border states, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California, Border Patrol ("ICE", now) has checkpoints set up as much as 100+ miles north of the border, supposedly checking for illegals, but also for anything else they are interested in. Usually, they stop you and check your ID, whether you look like a blond-haired, blue-eyed Scandanavian or a seven-foot tall Watusi, although I have been waved through without a check on several occasions (years ago - I don't know if anyone is getting waved through these days).

There are many reasons for checkpoints, but in the future they may have one more purpose.

If registration of any and all firearms is ordered via legislation, each and ever one of us who has ever purchased a firearm through a store where a BATFE form 4473 has been filled out will be in a law enforcement database. It may be a statewide database or a Federal one. BATFE may give access to their database to state and local agencies, or fusion centers which can be accessed by those agencies. Any agency which is given access will be able to see if you have purchased a firearm where a 4473 was filled out. More than likely, that access will be tied into your state's motor vehicle system, or BATFE may simply have their IT staff enter your vehicle data into their own database. Some of us know this happens already in our state when we get a CHL/CCW permit. I have been stopped for speeding and asked if I was currently carrying a firearm, due to the state tying the CHL database into the DMV database.

So. It is several weeks after the deadline has passed for you to either register (what you are "allowed" to keep) or turn in your firearms (the ones they banned). If you are stopped in any kind of checkpoint, you are likely to have your plates and/or driver's license run for "weapons registered to" you. If your local/state agency has decided to assist the Feds in their confiscation and enforcement of the new laws, you go to jail. Right there, right now. Your family and friends may never know, especially if the Feds, fusion center, or local agency has been directed to hold you "incommunicado" - without allowing you to make phone calls or otherwise notify anyone. The Patriot Act and NDAA allow them to get away with that, as you probably already know.

The agency then - with or without a warrant - goes to your home, throws your wife against a wall, points an MP5 or MP7 at your kids, shoots your dog and stomps your cat, then tears your house apart looking for your guns, ammo, stored food, "subversive" literature, computers with the email addresses of fellow patriots, and anything else they want.

Even without the checkpoints, if your local agency decides to comply with the Federal efforts at confiscation and detention of us "domestic terrorists", it could be as simple as the Feds providing a blanket warrant for anyone who ever filled out a Form 4473. Guilty until proven innocent. You drive into town to get some milk, or feed for the chickens, or to pick up medicine at Walgreens or CVS for your child, and some local cop runs your plate when you drive by. He gets a hit, pulls you over, IDs you as having a warrant for unregistered firearms, and hooks you up. Once they have you in custody, they know they have an excellent chance of getting into your house without getting shot (unless your wife is a tigress willing to die rather than be a slave, or willing to fight to keep your kids from being placed with some child molester via CPS. Yes, then she has to didi-mau out of there with the kids, but that is a whole separate article in itself).

Otherwise, other cops or Feds go to your home, jack your wife and kids up, kill your pets, ransack your house, steal your guns, food, supplies, cash, silver and gold, and take off. Your door hanging from its hinges, your gun safe torched open, your pets bleeding on the floor or ground, your wife in cuffs and your children hauled off to Child "Protective" Services - probably to end up in the foster care of that pederast I mentioned.

I think this is more likely than any cops - especially cowardly faggot Federal officers - risking their lives going door-to-door, don't you? Do you see how easy it could be?

Hopefully, the word would get out, and patriots would then simply refuse to stop for a traffic stop. Those of us who could might simply not leave their homes, except perhaps after dark, or only in an emergency, like getting medicine for a loved one, or taking them to a hospital (or perhaps a trusted family doctor).

Once we heard it was happening, it would be time to start taking down any checkpoints you knew or heard about. It would be time to go to local law enforcement facilities and destroy their vehicles and infrastructure (that way avoiding killing any good cops, or at least without angering the LEOs so much they make a career of hunting you down). Initially, however, some people are going to get hammered, then crushed.

So. Before any new gun control legislation goes through, each and every one of us needs to set up comms with friends and family, so that if one of you is taken or targeted, the rest learn about it as soon as possible. Look for, expect something like this to happen. I hope to Christ (forgive my blasphemy if you are religious) that I am simply being paranoid, but this is how I see it playing out. If you have any ideas to add to this, or can point out - logically, not merely wishful thinking - where you think I am wrong, please do so. Semper paratus, my friends.

Blasphemy as a National Security Threat

The holidays and personal dynamics have reduced the frequency of my posts lately, but I couldn't pass up passing on another of Daniel's posts at his always excellent blog, Sultan Knish. Daniel writes, in his article called "Blasphemy as a National Security Threat" about the "Stockholm Syndrome" as a euphemism for the behavior of Western Civilization toward Islam, and the muslims who follow the orthodox version of the cult. In this article he speaks to the (useless) attempt to appease those who truly follow Islam by condemning, arresting, and/or deporting those who speak out against this cult. As most people know, any criticism of Islam is considered blasphemy by those creatures who practice it.

As usual, Daniel clearly and logically details this useless and fruitless attempt by Western governments to limit the atrocities of these insane muslims by catering to their supposed "sensibilities". Although there is no reason whatsoever to believe that this appeasement reduces the muslim violence, they continue to do it anyway, then go back and state that muslim violence "would have been worse" had they not dealt harshly with those citizens of their own country who were accused of "blasphemy" against Islam or the pederast prophet named Mohammed. Daniel states:

"Trapped in a long-term war, our leaders are looking for ways of making the conflict more manageable. If they can't win the war, they can at least limit the number of attacks. It's not the open book kind of appeasement, but the double book kind. The open book is still patriotic, but the second book in the bottom drawer is running payments to the terrorists and finding ways to accommodate them. And anyone who runs afoul of the second book, also runs afoul of national security."

Yes, in the case of America, literally billions of dollars have been given to muslims around the world as payments to try to appease them, to reduce their violent behavior. Just as with the ridiculous concept of "land for peace", which has obviously been a total failure, "money for peace" has mostly been spent by the so-called "Palestinians" and other muslims to arm themselves with rockets which they fire at Israeli civilians and their homes, schools, and hospitals. With explosives that are used to blow up buses, restaurants, and religious ceremonies full of Israeli citizens.

If you are not already aware of various trials around the world where the right of free speech has been put on trial because it was deemed blasphemous to Islam, called "hate speech" simply because it was critical of Islam, then do a search for "Geert Wilders" (or use this link, to start) and "Mark Steyn" (or use the link) as a start.

Read Daniel Greenfield's article. Then go back and read as many of his earlier articles as strike your fancy. You will not only enjoy his clarity of thinking and his ability to explain things in an easily understandable fashion, but you will definitely learn things you were unaware of, brought into the light by his active keyboard. He is a real mensch, if he wouldn't mind a gentile such as myself saying so.

And so, it came to pass . . .

(Sent by a friend)

And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land called America , having lost their morals, their initiative, and their will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that person known as "The One."

He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning; but He hypnotized the people telling them, "I am sent to save you." My lack of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my association with evil doers are of no consequence. I shall save you with hope and Change.

Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the land that he who proceeded me is evil, that he has defiled the nation, and that all he has built must be destroyed.
And the people rejoiced, for even though they knew not what "The One" would do, he had promised that it was good; and they believed. And "The One" said " We live in the greatest country in the world. Help me change everything about it!" And the people said, "Hallelujah! Change is good!"

Then He said, "We are going to tax the rich fat-cats." And the people said "Sock it to them!" "And redistribute their wealth." And the people said, "Show us the money!" And the he said, " redistribution of wealth is good for everybody.."

And Joe the plumber asked, " Are you kidding me? You're going to steal my money and give it to the deadbeats??" And "The One"ridiculed and taunted him, and Joe's personal records were hacked and publicized.

One lone reporter asked, "Isn't that Marxist policy?" And she was banished from the kingdom.

Then a citizen asked, "With no foreign relations experience and having zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with radical terrorists?" And "The One" said, "Simple. I shall sit with them bow to them and talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and they will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!" And the people said, "Hallelujah!! We are safe at last, and we can beat our weapons into free cars for the people!"

Then "The One" said "I shall give 95% of you lower taxes." And one, lone voice said, "But 40% of us don't pay ANY taxes." So "The One" said, "Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!" And the people said, "Hallelujah! Show us the money!" Then "The One" said, "I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell your homes!" And the people yawned and the slumping housing market collapsed.
And He said. "I shall mandate employer-funded health care for every worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give every person unlimited healthcare and medicine and transportation to the clinics." And the people said, "Give me some of that!" Then he said, "I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas." And the people said, "Where's my rebate check?"

Then "The One" said, "I shall bankrupt the coal industry and electricity rates will skyrocket!" And the people said, "Coal is dirty, coal is evil, no more coal! But we don't care for that part about higher electric rates." So "The One" said, Not to worry. If your rebate isn't enough to cover your expenses, we shall bail you out. Just sign up with the ACORN and you troubles are over!"

Then He said, "Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let's grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches,free medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing..." And the people said, "Hallelujah!" and they made him king!

And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like unto a rock dropped from a cliff. The banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a crawl. And more of the people were without a means of support.

Then "The One" said, "I am the "the One"- The Messiah - and I'm here to save you! We shall just print more money so everyone will have enough!" But our foreign trading partners said unto Him. "Wait a minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have to pay more... And "The One" said, "Wait a minute. That is unfair!!" And the world said, "Neither are these other idiotic programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become a Socialist state and a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!"

And the people cried out, "Alas, alas!! What have we done?" But yea verily, it was too late. The people set upon The One and spat upon him and stoned him, and his name was dung. And the once mighty nation was no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or shelter or hope. And the Change "The One" had given them was as like unto a poison that had destroyed them and like a whirlwind that consumed all that they had built.

And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish, "give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!" But it was too late, and their homeland was no more.

You may think this a fairy tale, but it's not.

It's happening RIGHT NOW.

THIS really tells it like it is. After reading it -- and before you go into the bathroom to throw-up -- share it with all of your friends and those you know who care about our country and what is happening.

  In God we trust...

Fast and Furious: coming to a school near you?

While the media and various members of the Left - and everyone else seduced by the myth that one more law will force mentally ill people to stop breaking the law - claim that military-style, semi-automatic weapons need to be outlawed (in reaction to the school shooting in Connecticut), we need to remember that the Obama administration has pretty much buried the crimes they committed in the Fast and Furious case.

For those of you who may have somehow missed this case - downplayed or not mentioned at all by most of the major media outlets - it is the facts concerning the sale of thousands (over 2000, by most counts) of semi-automatic rifles and pistols to members of the Mexican drug cartels. Gun shops here in America (Arizona and Texas, mostly, but also in other locations such as Atlanta) were _ordered_ to sell the weapons, in spite of the fact that the owners/operators of those gun stores reported to BATF that they believed the sales to be illegal.

In some cases, the firearms purchases were actually physically assisted by agents of the BATF - Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (and Explosives, now as well). No attempt whatsoever was made to track these firearms into Mexico. The street-level agents who requested permission to do so were denied that permission by their supervisors, even when they stated unequivocally that it was improper not to do so.

Eric Holder, Obama's appointed U.S. Attorney General, who oversees the BATF, has done everything in his power to prevent the truth from being told about how this debacle was planned and carried out. He has prevented the release of the information, the documents, emails, and testimony which would indicate where this operation originated and who ran it. Obama put his oar in the water by stating that Executive Privilege applied - as it actually does not - to the information being sought from Holder by Congress. Although, if Obama was involved in ordering this operation, or in its continuance after it came to light, then perhaps Executive Privilege would apply to any documents pertaining to his involvement.

So, how does this all relate to my title? Well, recently, more weapons provided by our government to the drug cartels have shown up at crime scenes. A drug cartel shoot-out in Mexico where a Mexican "beauty queen" was also killed was recently publicized by Fox News. In a comment I made on another blog, I wondered how long it might be before one of these "Fast and Furious" firearms was discovered at the site of another school shooting.

While I certainly hope it never happens, considering the thousands of rifles and pistols - including .50 BMG rifles such as the Barrett semi-automatic sniper rifle - that were sold to the drug cartels, it may only be a matter of time.

The Israeli Method

Read this post at the Silicon Graybeard's blog. Understand that muslims love to kill Israeli/Jewish children, as they did at a school in France, and as they did with the Fogel family in Israel. They brag about it, celebrate it by passing out candy to everyone in Gaza and elsewhere.

Knowing this, and knowing that there have been ZERO mass school shootings in Israel since 1974, I think we can safely say that arming teachers and other staff as they do in Israel works. It prevents the killings that would certainly otherwise take place. 

Sure, with whack-jobs who don't care if they die wandering around, it is possible some children would still be killed, but far fewer if there were armed staff present to shoot such animals. Those doing it for "fame" however, would be forced to choose a different venue - like a college campus where guns are not permitted, or perhaps a Democratic Party office. Some "gun free zone", where guns are banned. Just the sight of a teacher with an M1 carbine like the one pictured above would be enough to send most sick shooters somewhere else.

Fortunately, even some of the liberals talking about the Newtown massacre are talking about having armed people present in schools now.  Perhaps they can be convinced that arming some teachers would be a good idea.

By the way, the high school I attended back in New York (Class of '67) had a shooting range in the basement. The biology teacher, Mr. Marshall, was the coach for our high school rifle team, which competed statewide, back then. It was never mentioned, but I believe he carried 24/7.
