I shouldn’t have looked

July 14, 2016

look

On the eve of BLM crowd raising hell in 37 different
cities I saw a post which had me scratching my head. I know
I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but this sounds
so disjointed I can’t make sense of it.

You may remember when the non-black Twin Cities residents
shut down the 35W bridge in Minneapolis in support of the
movement for Black Lives. Bear with me. This group issued
a set of demands that are beyond my capabilities to even
comprehend. These are in the post, but I’ll list one
paragraph here.

“This group demands the dismantling of the police
department, which includes disarming, defunding,
demilitarizing, and disbanding police. We believe that
security for all of us does not lie in the used of
aggression and force. Real security occurs when all of us
have meaningful employment, educational opportunities that
help us pursue our own life choices and the adequate health
car needed to live fruitfully. Research and our experience
tells us that the vast amounts spent on Funds must be used
to create green infrastructure, environments and jobs.
Education must not spare us from the reality of American
impact on the world and disenfranchised communities in this
country. We want public education, led by communities, not
corporations.”

I’ve been gob-smaked. If they are serious they are insane
and if they’re joking it isn’t funny. Some days it just
doesn’t pay to look at the news. Our condolences to the
victims and their families and friends in the aftermath of
the Bastille Day attack.

Strange day

July 10, 2016

Plans were made to work outside burning brush and enjoying
a forecasted clear, sunny day. A call to Fire Department told
me it was a burn day so outside I went. In short order the
fire was going and the brush pile kept getting smaller.
Then it started raining, put out the fire, and made the
bundles too water logged to carry.

After I got done laughing at my luck and drying off, my
thoughts went elsewhere. It seems every hour there are
updates online concerning the recent attacks on law
enforcement. Some were interesting, some just sounded like
the writer was biased, and others so far out there even the
tin foil hat brigade would find them funny.

A debate has ongoing as to if Obama is to blame. To my
way of thinking he is because he hasn’t had anything good
to say about our law enforcement agencies since he took
office. This goes back to when the black college professor
had a beef with police and Obama said the police acted
stupidly.

It is ironic that when a white police officer shoots a
black person in the performance of his duties it is racist,
but when a black person says he wants to shoot white cops
it isn’t. If it isn’t Obama’s fault, he sure is pouring
gasoline of the flames.

Instead of channeling all this hate towards people who
mean you no harm these people should look at the people who
are lying to them and pulling their strings. You may
remember Obama’s speech after the event where he claimed to
“state the facts”. He did make them sound horrendous.

On July 9, 2016, the following was written in the Wall
Street Journal:

“In 2015 officers killed 662 whites and Hispanics, and
258 blacks…There were 6,095 black homicide deaths in
2014- the most recent year for which such data are
available- compared with 5,397 homicide deaths for whites
and Hispanics combined. Almost all of those black homicide
victims had black killers.”

Confused yet? Of course speaking the truth wouldn’t help
the movement.

New movement

July 7, 2016

ATT000415

Before beginning this we want to forewarn liberals that if
they continue reading they may get their panties in a
bunch, learn the truth, and lose faith in their fearful
leaders. That being said we’ll start.

Since the Black Lives Matter bunch seems to get upset
every time a black person has trouble with the police we
have decided those of us who think differently need our own
movement. Let’s call it LM for Lies Matter.

BLMs latest crusade involves the death of Alton Sterling
who was shot while wrestling with police and being armed
himself. The non-news here, but the truth, is that he was
not a pilar of the community as BLM and the drive by media
portrays him.

He was a convicted felon who had been arrested for battery,
intimidation, carnal knowledge of a juvenille, burglary,
receiving stolen goods, robbery, theft, drug possession,
resisting arrest, possession of a stolen firearm, carrying
a weapon, and failure to register as a sex offender. His
police record goes back 20 years.

That being said, I do believe that Black Lives Matter has
the right to peacefully protest anything they want. BUT,
Lies Matter. How can one be outraged over an issues built on
lies? If you honestly think all blacks should get a get out
of jail free card, say so.

So the Lies Matter movement would work to ensure Congress
passes a law that anyone who knowingly spreads lies to
incite mob action would be charged with a crime and ordered
to stand trial. This law would also include politicians
and the media. After said law is past the movement would
toil to monitor its enforcement.

I was originally going to christen the movement White Lies
Matter but decided someone would find it racist. We’ve
said it before, it’s time to end the nonsense.

Count to ten

July 5, 2016

The wife has birthday coming up in a few so after I had a
good talk with Dad I wondered out to the Mall in search of
a trinket worthy of the occasion. As I parked the car a
newscast announced that Hillary wouldn’t be charged.

I had intentions of getting worked up about that, but when
I took in the crane working at the bank I calmed down. Who
could be mad about something they have no control over on
such a beautiful day. And I am still calm, but disgusted.

Not only did this indict Hillary in the minds of many of
us, but also the corrupt administration we currently have.
Millions of taxpayer dollars spent on an investigation with
nothing to show for it. Makes no difference that the next
administration, unless it’s hers, could do something about
it. The damage is done.

Much like the people who seem to get pleasure out of the
burning of our flag, we’re sure there are those among us who
will celebrate the decision not to prosecute. The day of
the informed voter going to the polls is gone. And most of
the people who will vote for Hillary couldn’t tell you what
is in the Constitution, who their Congressman is, or the
significance of Independence Day.

What ever happened to the idea that with rights comes
responsibilities? But I digress. If this whole Hillary
fiasco has you seeing red just count to ten and breathe
slowly. If that doesn’t work, I’ve heard enough of your
favorite libation may help you forget.

Drug problem

June 30, 2016

While the president is golfing, his wife and kids are off
on another vactation, and our Attorney General had a
“private” meeting with a former president, the U.S. Drug
Enforcement Administration released their 2016 National
Heroin Threat Assessment Summary.

This report outlines an expanding public health crisis
that doesn’t seem to bother anyone in Washington, D.C.,
and we think it should. Some of the numbers are thought
provoking to say the least. We’ll list a few.

The number of herion users has almost tripled between 2007
and 2014.

Deaths due to synthetic opoids, like fentanyl and other
simular drugs, increased 79% between 2013 and 2014.

Deaths involving heroin more than tripled between 2010 and
2014. In 2014 there were 10,574 deaths involving herion.

to quote the summary “The number of users, treatment
admissions, overdose deaths, and seizures from trafficers
all increased over those reported in last year’s summary.”

Of little comfort is the fact that heroin seizures are up
80% since 2011.

If you can open a PDF file the summary can be found online
here.

The DEA states many users of controlled prescription drugs
become addicted after a prescription for legitimate medical
purposes. Add to that the fact today herion is higher in
purity, easier to get than illegally obtained controlled drugs,
and less expensive.

We know the president is busy defending Muslims, when not
on the golf course, but we think information like this
should be available and solutions discussed. We didn’t
hear any outraged media,or politicians orating on the
subject. They must not have gotten the memo.

Here we go

June 16, 2016

Is it just us or was Obama parroting Hilary in his recent
speech on the Orlando shootings? This thought will be
unfathomable to those of liberal or progressive leanings,
but hear us out.

The part of speech that spoke volumes to us was the part
when he said something like “would calling this Islamic
terrorism have saved one life?” Sounding to us like a
version of Clinton’s “what difference, at this point, does
it make?”

There is a very simple answer to Obama’s question and
it is YES. IF the government was pro-active instead of
retro-active on this issue lives would have been spared.
It is easy, in hindsight, to say something wouldn’t have
made a difference as it can’t be proven if it would have
or not.

But, too many people crazier than outhouse rats, who say
they support the radicals are slipping through too many
cracks. Yet it is so much easier to blame the gun. After
all, guns are scary to some people. Shot inside a building
guns are loud, and guns can’t argue back.

As someone who has a lick of common sense, I do wonder.
There are somewhere around 275 million guns in private
hands in our country and gun owners hold about 12
trillion rounds of ammunition. Common sense would then
dictate that if guns, or we gun owners, were the problem
the country would know it.

1as

Gun control isn’t working, trying to ban guns isn’t
working, and still crime is going down as more people buy
guns. Yet this administration says the problem is guns and
they need more control.

The government needs to be focused on acting before these
shootings happen instead of trying to explain why they
didn’t after the fact. They’re talking the talk but not
walking the walk.

Removing the bull

June 15, 2016

039

The talking heads in the drive by media are still trying
to ship us the bull while maintaining a straight face and
acting like they know know what they are talking about. It
is amusing to those of us who do know yet a little
depressing in that the unknowing believe it.

As a result our country is once again in a discussion on
the subject of guns that has been ongoing for longer than
some would believe. To those who don’t believe in the arming
of citizens we offer a little history lesson. We will not use
links because said history is easily verifiable and we will
use some of the old vernacular.

In 1868 the Civil War had ended and up until later that
year Federal troops were sent to the south to protect the
freed slaves, and others who believed they should be free,
against the KKK and other such organizations. Negroes were
hung, or shot, for such infractions as talking to white
women, rape, arson, and one for slapping a white child.

Whites were hung, or shot, for everyting from being a
negroe sympathizer to being accused of shady business
pratices. It got so bad that on August 4, 1868 a debate
took place in the Federal House of Representatives over
foregoing adjurnment to address the issue of arming the
negroes and whites so they could defend themselves.

Republicans requested long arms be given southern citizens,
including the negoes, to protect themselves against the
violence. Democrats laughed at the proposition and said
that southern citizens could not be trusted with weapopns
and that the weapons would end up in the hands of those
doing the violence.

The Democrats also mocked staying in Washington later or
returning early. One Democrat even replied that the
people, meaning the citizens, needed a rest and Congress
had to recess for them! As a result of that bunch of
politicians not being able to reach an agreement 2,516
illegal executions took place between 1885 and 1900. Of
those 436 were in northern states and the remainder in
the southern states.

Because our government did nothing 2,465 men, 51 females,
1,678 negroes, 801 whites, 21 Indians, 9 Chinese, and 7
Mexicans died. And it’s still our fault?
