two comparisons: killing our children

friday, march 2nd

what are we doing?

That question rang through a riveted and silent CPAC crowd on Friday as the president repeated it, “So what are we doing?”

He continued, “We want to ensure that when there are warning signs we can act and act very quickly. Why do we protect our banks, our airports, and our government buildings, but not our schools?”

As the discussion since the Valentine’s Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has progressed, a couple of comparisons have emerged that are truly disturbing. Their outcomes hold remarkable similarity.

1. The Protestors vs The Preventionists:

In the nearly immediate aftermath of the shooting, anti-gun activists/gun control advocates (or however they wish to be identified) didn’t even allow the students (who had just experienced some of the worst trauma many of them will ever experience) to seek counseling, to ask questions, or to begin to put the pieces of their lives back together. Instead the “Guns are the problem” crowd immediately ginned up public protests, press conferences, and rallies. George Clooney, Steven Spielberg, and Oprah Winfrey ponied up $500,000 each to round up the still grieving students to bus them to Tallahassee and Washington, D.C. to chant, scream, and demand. They insisted that “something” be done. These coordinated efforts were designed not to find solutions to school shootings, but to rage against Republicans, the NRA, and inanimate machinery that can never be held morally accountable. CNN staged a very manipulated town hall meeting with Florida’s senators and a spokeswoman for the NRA. And endless hours of kids crying while attempting to read speeches filled news channel programming. It was one of the most egregious and unkind responses to hurting hearts I’ve ever witnessed.

The abuse evident in such methods said a great deal, not about the passions of the still grieving kids, but of the heartless, merciless, and cruelly inhumane puppet masters, politicians, and celebrities who would not let the opportunity to “exploit this crisis, go to waste.”

Simultaneously another group of people—those genuinely concerned with not only the health of the victims but also the immediate safety of schools charted a different path. Putting forward as much of a non-partisan, idea-centric, low-cost, seven step plan to immediately secure our schools, the readers of the plan shared the ideas more than a quarter of a million times (just on Facebook) within four days. Prior to that column I devoted a column just to the primary idea that the president has now put forward, allowing qualified, certified, gun adept school personnel to be better prepared for an active shooter. In addition, a sheriff in Ohio opened up a voluntary certification class for teachers who would like to be able to “conceal carry” and had to cut off the number at 250 for the first batch of those who are desiring to protect their classrooms. Other reports and personal inquiries have revealed that there are literally thousands of teachers across the nation who are desiring to not be given "sitting duck” status in the event that outer protections break down with an active shooter. I would also include in this group the president and the administration for (unlike CNN’s staged town hall event) opening the White House doors to a range of people affected by gun violence. Though the ideas in the room contrasted greatly with each other in some cases, the discussion was agreeable, even compassionate, and showed great potential for how such a divided country could come together.

As that discussion was just fading out we then awakened to some disturbing new news about the day of the massacre.

2.The Confiscators vs. The Certified:

An armed officer, Scot Peterson, refused to take action upon arriving at the scene of the shooting even as he could hear the killing going down inside building 12 on the school's campus. Scot Peterson is the linchpin that tears apart the “gun control” argument. The gun confiscators (my preferential reference for them) for some reason do not wish certified gun handlers—who also happen to be teachers—to be empowered to protect their classrooms and school children. They tell us that only police should have weapons. They tell us this consistently even though an average mass shooting in America takes 3 minutes from start to finish while the average response time for police units away from schools is 5-8 minutes nationally. But Scot Peterson was supposed to be the difference. He was a resource officer armed and stationed at the school specifically to deal with violent threats of deadly force. He is authorized by his training, his badge, and his job assignment to use deadly force to save lives as necessary. He’s supposed to be how the gun-control solution works.

Compare that to Coach Aaron Feis, an unarmed security guard at the high school. As bullets began to spray he threw himself in front of a young girl saving her life and others. As the JV football coach and alum of Douglas High he spent his life attempting to impact the lives of the kids at the campus. He died as selflessly as he lived. But he didn’t have to. Had he been armed as a coach or teacher at the school he could have been able to still run towards the fired shots, but in a different turn of events, perhaps taken down the out-of-control gunman and saved the lives of maybe all of the 17 needless victims.

It makes no sense not to arm someone like Coach Feis, but to arm the cowardice of Officer Peterson.

The president has engaged this issue and his singular focus appears to be the main contention of my simple seven ideas from last week: make our schools a hardened target where perpetrators dread taking any actions that might be met with deadly force. This is a proper and clear-headed response to the evil roaming our world looking for soft targets to attack.

It’s the right thing to do.

The gun confiscators get children killed.

Securing our schools will do the opposite.

A Day In The Life.

After weeks and weeks of getting hardly any quality sleep – an hour here, two hours there and some nights none at all – I used a combination of sleeping pills, painkillers and analgesics. Normally, I don't mix pills or meds of any kind, but these were in the same "family", so it didn't conflict. Two new Rxs were ready at Rite Aid Pharmacy, in East York, which I picked-up around 2pm, and ran some other errands. I'd slept-in until 1pm, for the 2nd day in a row, on the LR couch, and that felt real good.

Finished with errands and such, I gassed-up the Jeep Grand Cherokee, returned home, made some lunch and began to catch-up on the deluge of mail – mostly bills and junk mail – from the past 5-6 days, and watched some NASCAR racing on CATV. The cleaning ladies had been in on Thursday, so I had some straightening-up to do, back to my preferences. F-1 Racing is on at 0-Dark-Thirty, and I can't find a later re-broadcast just yet, but I'm still checking all my Net and print sources.

Right now, I could use a great big hug and kiss – hear that, Sherry? – to help get me back on track; you sounded like you could use one too. Just say when... ♪ ♫ ♬ You Make Me Feel Like Dancing? ♪ ♫ ♬! (Just kidding...)

As we get up in years, we often forget the ages of family, friends and ourselves. Here's a helpful https://www.easycalculation.com/date-day/age-calculator.php app to fix that. Helpful, huh?

Enjoying "Black History Minute", are you? They've contributed so much, it'd could all fit on a 3"x5" card.

I stayed-up way to late, past 2:30a on Sunday, watching CATV, and wound-up sleeping most of the morning away. Hey, I'm frigging tired and; who gives a rat's ass?.

Ol' Wiliie sure got it right": "Funny How Time Slips Away"

I had an overflowing boatfload of things to get done on Fri, sp I called it a day at 9p.

Your TSHTF Survival

Are you truly ready for when, not if, TSHTF (The Shit Hits The Fan). And a lot of my "Journal" Readers have emailed and called me to discuss what preparations they should take for that "coming awful event". Believe me, "it" IS coming. Based upon what's happening around the world and here in the US, I have a terrible, terrible *gut feeling* that TSWHTF (The Shit Will Hit The Fan), sometime in 2014. Don't ask why; I just do.

First, Israel is preparing for war, after being attacked for years on many fronts, and not fighting back as she should have. This war will truly have "Biblical implications" around the world. The Middle East is rapidly-collapsing under the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic riots (muslim Brotherhood) and rule ("arab Spring"), with world crude oil prices projected to hit $200+/bbl, or even higher into the $300-$400 range,

(Net picture)

Europe is on the verge of insolvency and collapse, no thanks in great part to Germany, teetering-and-tottering Asia and South America will quickly-follow, then comes the downfall of Canada, and The USA won't be far behind, in late 2012 and into 2013. Watch this video; be sure you're sitting-down, and don't have any food or liquid in your mouth upon which to choke.

Just Google "survival" and see what comes-up. Damned-near everything you ever wanted to know how to prepare for this for-sure-coming "hellish holocaust", some of it in easy-to-download *.PDF format. Tens-of-thousands of websites are devoted to the topic of "survival". Do the same with "You Tube", and watch the thousands of videos. This is *NOT The Phony Y2K Crappola*; this is for real. I said numerous times that Y2K was a waste of time and money to prepare for, and that came true. I'm reading that "survival stores" are reporting a huge upswing in sales and preparations, and for good reason.

I'm also one of the very, very few who "predicted a 9-11 type event", 2 years and 8 months before it happened. Read down that "Journal" entry to the "Scary Stuff" section, and it was done by the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic shit/filth/trash, NOT the US Gov't as some morons and idiots (Alex Jones & Co), have and still It's interesting you mention when an old paradigm dies and a new one takes its place. There are people who are still connected to the old one and can't conceive of life without that old paradigm. I think you saw that in the Great Depression. A lot of people never recovered from it because once that hit it was the end of their lives. claim. Need I say more about those certifiable and murderous, subhuman muslim/islamist wackos who are determined to kill all of us Proud Infidels?

Am I an "conspiracy alarmist" or one of those "crazed survivalists", sequestered in a Montana, Idaho, Utah or Wyoming compound or bunker? Not hardly; I'm simply in mid-State Pennsylvania, an Eagle Scout, Class of 1963, Order Of The Arrow/ Vigil Honor, and our BSA Motto was then, and still is now, "Be Prepared". Need I say any more?

Forget all of the "buy gold and silver" bullshit commercials; buy "brass and lead" for your guns. They're a far, far superior investment, IMO. Ammo is truly a "fungible" item; gold & silver aren't at all. They may be "intrinsic", but they're utterly-useless in a collapsing/collapsed society or world. Do the requisite research, as I've done. 'Nuff said on that subject.

BTW, how are you stocked-up for incandescent light bulbs? Within 4 weeks, manufacturing and using 100w incandescent will become "a crime", thanks to stupid-assed, liberal moron chimp, shit-for-brains, George W Bush & Co, in 2007. You'll be forced, under penalty-of-law, to use the very expensive,

(Net picture)

dangerous and short-lived CFLs (Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs). Better stock-up NOW on 60w, 75w and 100w incandescents, where and when you can find them, before they become unavailable and illegal!

This government's ***CRIMINALLY NUTS***, in trying to regulate our use of anything and everything! It's fascism, socialism, Leninism and communism, dammit, and it won't stand! Where is that in The US Constitution? The US Government isn't empowered to force us to do or buy anything, and has overstepped its legal authority in The ENUMERATED Commerce Clause. The Commerce Clause is quite specifically an enumerated power listed in the United States Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3). The Contemporary Commerce Clause debate, When "decided by the SCOTUS in the Summer of 2012", will cause CWIII, if upheld. Stockpile NOW, because TSHTF before/during/after the November General Election!

Gold is NOT the way to go; lead and brass (aka ammo) ARE. Mark my words!

TSHTF this or next year, and members of the corrupt, criminal US Congress are helping racist, commie, lowlife scumbag Barry "Fuck America!" Obama (SAMBO-IL), by either collaborating with him or cowering before him, on his You are going to see, in metro areas, the absolute worst in humanity, as the people that are most dependent upon a collectivist system, whether they're these Occupy Well Street people, or people who are loaded up with debt, they are totally unprepared for an economic reality where their paradigm does not function. As a result they're going to go through the absolute most disgusting inhumanity that I think any American has ever seen as they go through this anger phase – and it's going to result in riots, and starvation and bloodshed. It has to happen. You don't have people's life savings disappear and people become desperate, and not have that happen. coming "Race War" plan.

We are *at war with Iran*; no doubt about it. Get used to it. And shit-for-brains, racist, commie, lowlife scumbag Barry "F•ck America!" Obama (TRAITOR-IL) has politely "asked" for our formerly Top Secret RQ-170 Sentinel Drone "to be returned". What a dumbf•ck Obama is! He should be charged, tried and imprisoned for *treason*, IMO.

I've been saying, for the past 2-3 years, that no one should buy any gold or silver; it's worthless crap if TSHTF (The Shit Hits The Fan). Instead, buy guns and ammo; they're a far, far better investment, IMO. Any questions?

Uh-oh, it's beginning to happen in Europe. Better get ready for it to come over here, soon, as The Fed f•cks America, once again. Time to abolish The Fed and its corrupt, criminal influence on America's economy!

Here's a very useful List of Barter Items, for when TSHTF. Get and stockpile those and more, if you know what's good for you and your family! Think I'm kidding? Better read this and think VERY carefully about it.

With the FBI already considering many US Citizens as "sovereign citizen extremists", are you ready for "Rex 84" & The FEMA Camps? A new bill has been introduced in the US House of Representatives called the National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645. This bill if passed into law will direct the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish

Looks like a "race war" is coming, thanks to the hate-filled nigga race-pimps Jackson, Sharpton, Farrakan and New Black Pampers®, and time is growing shorter and shorter before TSHTF.

Don't let the possibility of DHS watching your every move deter you in preparing for TSHTF; do it regardless. Your and your Family's safety & survival always comes first. Beware of what your neighbors will do if you're prepared and they're not.

State and local resistance to the detention provisions contained in the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) continues to grow, rapidly-emerging as a nationwide movement against the illegal and unconstitutional Federal Jack-Booted-Thugs' powers.

America is already being turned into a giant prison camp, and 90% of Americans either go along with it or don't see it happening. I do.

When prepping, always plan your survival purchases first on paper; buy them afterward.

Here's another good preparedness/precious metals website, 321 Gold. No, I don't believe in gold & silver, for what's coming. I believe in *lead & brass*/*food & water* for that situation; the other stuff comes much, much later.

Here's a new "warning" about a solar-based EMP event. If it happens, TSHTF.

After Hurricane Sandy, is there any doubt in your mind that you ought to be "prepping" for disasters, before everything is stripped from the stores' shelves? Does this look familiar to you?

If you were in an area heavily-affected by Sandy, you might have seen some looters running rampant. IMO, they should be shot on sight, not arrested. KILL ALL OF THE LOOTERS!

Funny that the gutsy UK raises its "terror alert" to severe, and the US Gov't is clueless and worthless as to what's happening in the murderous, subhuman islamic world. Get ready, America: we're going to get hit again, real soon, much worse than 9-11-01. Count on it.

Obama: "Entrepreneurs Don't Build Businesses"

"Last week, President Barack Obama delivered some telling remarks to a fire station full of people in Roanoke, Virginia. I'll save you the trouble of reading the (long and uninspired) speech and provide you with the most interesting part:

     "If you've got a business – you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." – President Barack Obama, July 13th, 2012.

It would be easy to respond with something along the lines of, "Somebody else made that happen? Who? Who magically imagined the product or service, started the business, built it up, and created the jobs? Who was it? The tooth fairy?" And to some extent, President Obama's statement is so ridiculous as to merit that sort of quick, flippant response.

(Here's the video of that loony remark.)

However, he's not entirely wrong. This reminds me of an argument that Massachusetts Senate Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren would probably make. If he's talking about a mid-sized or large business, where an entrepreneur has hired additional employees, then at that point the business's success isn't purely that of its founder.

Employees add value to a business through work and ideas. That's why you hire employees, after all. Steve Jobs didn't invent every last detail of the phones, computers, and tablets to come out of Apple over the last decade. There were engineers working on those products who developed them. So, employees help entrepreneurs to build their business. "Somebody else" did indeed play a part in making that happen.

But what makes the president's remarks so inane is the totality of what he's saying. He's not saying that entrepreneurs and employees work together to build a business. It's not a collaborative effort. It's all thanks to the employees. Usually, I can understand the way the president's mind works on most issues by examining it through a pragmatic, liberal, or progressive framework. This one baffles me.

As I explained, I can see that he has some of a point, but he's still just obviously wrong on the broader point. Sure, the employees help to build the business, but the business itself wouldn't exist without the entrepreneur. So, to say to entrepreneurs and to business owners, "...you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen," is just wrong. It's silly. They did build that by setting the foundation for the business.

Entrepreneurs are almost always the hardest workers in their business. They work a simply insane number of hours to get their idea off the ground. If they succeed (and they face a tremendous risk if they don't), then they'll start to grow and to hire employees to help. Honestly, if I were an entrepreneur and I read those remarks by the president, I would be furious. It's a tremendous insult to the true job-creators in America, entrepreneurs.

In the context of a long, somewhat rambling campaign speech that touched on every issue under the sun, it may seem as though I'm over-exaggerating the importance of a minor thing he said. But President Obama isn't a stupid man, or even one who makes off-the-cuff remarks he doesn't really mean. He's a very smart man, and he meant what he said.

When the most important issues for most Americans are economic growth and job creation, I believe it's essential to know exactly where both candidates stand on the importance of entrepreneurs. Yesterday, we learned that President Obama believes that entrepreneurs don't build businesses. Ultimately, they're irrelevant. Take that for what you will." © Principles and Policy, July 14, 2012

The Global Warming Lie & Money Pit

Liberal Media BS

The most insidious power of the corrupt, criminal liberal media, is the power to ignore the truth.

Here, have some fun. Something stinks within America's newsrooms. It's the stench of liberal bias permeating the so-called mainstream media. From lies and deceit to distortions and character assassinations, the liberal media dish out leftist BS to drive their radical agenda.

Chris Plante, host of The Chris Plante Show on WMAL (DC) from 9-12, weekdays, said, "The most insidious power the media has, if the power to ignore." Think about what that really means and you can readily see what an evil force the corrupt, criminal, liberal-demokkkRAT-controlled, butt-kissing, fawning circlefest media assholes, are.

Think you can detect it? Take this test and find out just how much BS the liberal media are dishing out. Wear your hip-waders; the bullshit is deep!
