From The Rooftops

Luke 12:3 
"What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight. What you have whispered to someone behind closed doors will be shouted from the rooftops.'

It has been known for some time that sex predators are rife in the entertainment industry and throughout the government. These sleaze bags use their positions of power to impose their twisted will upon their victims and then sanctimoniously condemn others for actions that in no way compare in heinousness to their own. Their self righteousness is sickening.

The failed comedian Al Franken is one of them. He is one funny son of a gun, no? 

I am amazed that some Special Forces guy was not accompanying this USO tour, saw what Franken was doing to an exhausted sleeping beauty and proceed to knock him into the middle of next week. 

We'll see what the political establishment does with this perverted clown. I doubt he will resign his Senate seat. It is up to Minnesota voters to send him back to playing his sick shtick in cheap resorts.

Some Reflections On Mass Murder

I can finally get my left hand up on the keyboard.... that one handed stuff is for the birds.

What can we say about the soulless killer of the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Devin Kelly? His ex-wife says ""He just had a lot of demons or hatred inside of him," which automatically puts him on the eligibility list for running for office on the Democratic ticket.

It's not like he hid these demons from everyone around him.

His high school classmates voted him "Creepiest Creep" at the Senior Prom. He wore Eau de Creepy Goosebumps aftershave to school and carved the names of girls he liked into his pet hamster. He tried to marry his father's chainsaw.

Okay, okay - I wandered off the reservation a bit.

In 2012 the Air Force bounced him out of the service and locked his creepy ass up for a year after he assaulted his first wife and nearly killed his step child. Guess the kid had red hair. Unfortunately the Air Force did not practice due diligence (piss on that, we're the Air Force) and failed to notify the FBI of his arrest and conviction so it could be entered into the NCIC (National Crime Information Center) databases so that law enforcement officers throughout the galaxy could be warned that a serious offender had just shown up on their radar, kill him.
Less than a week before the Texas church massacre, Kelley showed up at a festival dressed in black and acted so strangely that people kept a close eye on him, two longtime parishioners said Friday. Kelley "was completely distant and way out in thought," recalled Judy Green. She and her husband said Kelley often exhibited troubling behavior. At the fall festival held on Halloween night at the First Baptist Church, Kelley "didn't even blink -- he just stared," she said.
Was this enough to alert local police so he could be checked for weapons? Sadly, the answer is no. He should never have been allowed to purchase any firearm because of his history of domestic violence; this has been part of our federal laws for about twenty years. He escaped from a mental health facility, police recieved complaints of more domestic abuse after his release but failed to follow up. To "Serve and Protect" is easily defeated by incompetence and gross neglect.

People noticed that this man was spacing out, he posted pictures of his AR15. Kelly bragged to people about being armed. Didn't his send wife know about his past and his weapons? No one knew about his DV history? His mother-in-law attended the church and could have warned others about his violent tendencies. More and more is being uncovered about Devin Kelly, but learning about his demons is not productive. Fixing a broken system is.

If there is anything we should have learned from the past, it is that we cannot depend on the government to protect us. The government will show up after the fact and clean up the mess and then we'll hold vigils. That is not satisfactory. We must pick up the responsibility of self defense and become more proactive. I am not espousing a vigilante response, just a well-reasoned attitude that if someone is acting strange and has access to weapons, perhaps the authorities should be notified.

Because of the government's failures, the only answer to this is to develop situational awareness of possible threats. And develop competency with the firearm of your choice.

More here and here.

Of Courage And The Soul

"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." ─ Mark Twain
It takes courage for a soldier, sailor, airman, marine or guardsman to risk life and limb for his country. The least we who have never worn the uniform of our country can do is honor these heroes. That is the basis of the Veterans Day celebration—to venerate these great men and women with immense words of gratitude. The edifice of our society stands on the martyrdom of these selfless souls.
After the horrifying events of 9/11 there was a surge in patriotism and people of all ages walked into recruiting stations to sign up for the military.  Thousands of young men and women who were too young to remember the world before 9/11 still wanted to serve a country that’s been at war against terrorism since they were young children.
The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve depends on how veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.  I pray we never see a time when we spit on returning veterans and call them “baby killers” such as was done to our Vietnam vets who felt abandoned by their fellow countrymen.  They bravely bore their country’s cause.
The great Chinese general and military strategist Sun Tzu (544 BC─496 BC) noted, “Regard your soldiers as your children and they will follow you into the deepest valleys.  Look on them as your beloved sons and they will stand by you even unto death.”
From the world wars of Europe to the jungles of Vietnam; from the deserts of the Middle East to the African continent our veterans have made the world a better place and America the great country we are today.
We owe them a debt we can never hope to repay.

A Common Sense Solution to Illegal Guns

Liberals have been clamoring for some time to have "common sense" gun laws enacted. That sounds reasonable. Then, they proceed to regale us with the need for laws that are already on the books, or impractical ideas that would never work. Never fear! I have a solution.

It's not a new law per se, but something that every liberal who is serious about solving the problem can do. It might cost a few bucks up front, but, as you're always telling us, "If it saves just one life it'll be worth it", so I expect close to 100% participation. (Stop laughing!)

Now to be honest, I am basing this solution based on what multitudes of liberals have told me about the ease of buying a gun. We've been told that it's easier to buy a gun than too buy a book. Teen Vogue recently regurgitated liberal talking points reminded us that it's:

* Easier to buy a gun than get a driver's license
(which is a neat trick, since you need to obtain a driver's license to buy a gun, so you have to do MORE to buy a gun!)

* Easier to buy a gun than to adopt a pet

* Easier to buy a gun than to get married

* Easier to buy a gun than to get an abortion, and

* Easier to buy a gun than to get an internship or a full time job.

At first, I thought I would challenge liberals to attempt to purchase a legal handgun, to see just how much more difficult it is than they imagine. But then, I thought, what is the liberal going to do with that gun? They don't want it, don't know how to use it or properly store it. In their hands, it could become a hazard. But what if every liberal committed to the elimination of gun violence were to purchase a gun illegally?

Hear me out, this is good! Liberals tell us it is easier to buy an illegal gun than to buy a book, so, why don't they just prove to all us hard-headed, gun-toting conservatives just how easy it is? Here's what you do...go down to wherever you think it is that illegal guns are sold...street corners, back alleys, gun shows...wherever! Take cash. Most criminals probably aren't set up to take MasterCard or Visa. Purchase the gun for cash. You can haggle a little, but remember..."if it saves just one life it''ll be worth it". So don't be cheap.

Next, you take the gun directly to the nearest police station. They can dispose of it for you and also check to see if it's been used in any crimes. And then, this is the good part, you tell the police exactly where you bought the gun and give a description of the person who sold it to you. If possible, try to drop the gun into a bag and maybe it will have some usable fingerprints for the police. Take video of the exchange if you can do it surreptitiously. It may not hold up in court for putting this guy away, but should go a long way in mitigating any charges towards you for purchasing an illegal firearm.

It's a veritable threefer! You have irrefutable proof of just how easy it is to buy a gun, shutting the mouths of all those pro-gun types. You have taken an illegal firearm off the street AND taken an illegal gun dealer off the street as well!  What more could you ask for? If it's that easy to buy a gun, it's just common sense, right? If liberals from coast to coast take millions of illegal guns off the street and likewise thousands of illegal gun dealers, everybody wins! Right?

So, what'll it be liberals? Up to the challenge?
