The arrogance of the these Left wing kooks never ceases to amaze and astound me.
At the bottom of this editorial is a link. I urge you to read it. But. pease, do not feed the trolls. Read it, understand what this fool is saying, and then comment here or on the American Patriot Reality Check Facebook Page. (https://www.facebook.com/AmericanPatriotRealityCheck/)
Here’s a guy who out and out says exactly what we’ve been saying all along. That the “State” will “come take out guns” through the use of “militarized police”.
He goes on to state how he coolly handles those of us who say “You can have my guns when you pry them from my cold, dead fingers”. He says, “Oh, they will, and you’ll be dead in a pool of your own blood”.
Where his arrogance ends however is that we aren’t in this to play dead, or get dead, or to be the first to fire the “next shot heard ’round the world”.
We are in this for our Rights. Yes, that “Second Amendment” Right, and his blithering idiot “First Amendment” right. And all of the other of the first ten in the Bill of Rights.
The government, and it’s minions have NO rights to come take the guns “For the common good”. This is not a “Commonwealth”. America is neither a Monarchy where we are all “subjects” to a king, nor a Socialist State (Although so many of them like to THINK we are).
America is a Representative Constitutional Republic. We are not ruled by theocrats, autocrats, kings, emperors or the people we send to Washington, to the Capitols or the County Seats. We rule OURSELVES through those we place in office.
If, at this point the Left, Politicians and political appointees wish to test this theory, then Thomas Jefferson, one of America’s first “Bad Asses” said it first and I’ll repeat it for emphasis…. and I quote, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
Please, JIM KARGER, please understand that you too will be one of the masses lying there in a pool of your own blood, shot dead by the other side because you chose the wrong side to stand. And truthfully, you may fall victim to your beloved “State” because the second that most-hated “Second Amendment” goes away, you have nothing left to protect your “First Amendment” from the “State” masters.
Be the American Public so misguided, so ill-informed and so uneducated that they believe only that which is fed them by the media, the so-called Fourth Estate? The Media, the Press, the people who stood toe-to-toe with corrupt politicians in the past now stand behind them and take whatever they are fed, and then in turn feed that to a populous of sheep?
Another thing Mr. Jefferson said was, “I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”
Right he was. Until the future came upon men and women mindlessly caught up in the Battle of the Stars, Television and all sorts of other distraction.
I leave you with these thoughts my friends… be you a wise man, or poor, rich or idiot, none can do better for their country than to stand by it in tough times. That you stand by your country does NOT mean you follow all the laws, corrupt as they may be, or orders from on high, placed upon you as if you were a subject to a King. None of us are by birth slaves. No one in this country living today is a slave and none of shall be slaves again. But if, like Mr. Karger, one chooses such a path then Sam Adams said it best.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
― Samuel Adams
Why do you need to own an ugly black rifle capable of shooting 2-4 rounds per second with the mere pull of a trigger?
Why do you need to be able to buy a thousand rounds?
Why do you NEED high capacity magazines?
I have a better question. Why do you ask?
Seriously though, when I am asked these questions, sometimes it is difficult getting through to the people who ask. They are asking the questions rhetorically and do not require, nor even WISH you give an answer. In fact, they want you to splutter and hem and haw, and feel threatened and guilty.
Why are there gun control laws to begin with? Why are there people on a no-fly list who can purchase guns? Why are there people who should be in mental institutions who can purchase weapons?
These are the better questions.
The BEST question though is. if criminal commits a crime using a gun, say, murder, why isn’t he adjudicated as a murderer and executed? Why aren’t people who are mentally defective put in mental institutions?
So many questions, so few answers, right?
Let’s look at the last questions first.
Because people believe that folks who are mentally deranged shouldn’t be placed in institutions. Do-gooders for the past hundred years have fought to remove people from mental institutions and indeed, shut down such places. The same people fought to have “privacy” added to medical records.
Now they wish to reverse this trend. They would love to know if everyone out there is considered “sane” or not… but it’s not their business any more.
Then, they would like to ask you questions at the doctors office (and I have experienced this personally, so this isn’t some vacuous statement) about your ownership of guns; or whether you have “recently felt like harming yourself or others”.
Let me address the title; no-fly lists. How does one even get ON a no-fly list? And why are they on it? Because they might blow up a plane with a 4 ounce bottle of shampoo? Or because you spoke out against the US government because you’re dissatisfied with their work ethic?
Both, actually. If you are a terrorist, you might wish to blow up a plane and perhaps you’ve made it clear, because, for instance you MIGHT belong to Islam. Islam has made it abundantly clear they wish to kill Americans (and Jews, and Europeans, and Whites, Blacks, Asians, whomever, and wish to do so with impunity… because you’re an INFIDEL). And you might have made a statement against the US government for their over-reaching, heavy-handed nonsense and you’re questioning their ability to be useful any more.
And with good reason. You’re an American Citizen questioning the government, because YOU are a watchdog. YOU are supposed to question the country’s leaders as a dutiful citizen. Making sure they are doing their job, and doing it for the benefit of the people, and not themselves.
If you’re a terrorist you should BE on a no-fly list, in particular to prevent further training as a terrorist, and secondarily to that to prevent you from blowing up the damned plane. You should NOT be able to purchase a gun.
If you’re a citizen questioning your government, you should NOT be a no-fly list, no matter which politician, party or group is running the White House this week. In fact, you should not be on that list, you should NOT be questioned about your questioning, and you SHOULD be allowed to purchase a gun.
Or ten of them. Or a hundred.
You should not be considered a threat, mentally defective, you should not be considered a person of interest and should be left the hell alone.
In the United States you have a right to your opinion, to express it, Freedom of Speech, Assembly, and to cross state lines and come and go as you please. No one should be bothering you.
The second you actually commit a crime of course, that all goes out the window.
Now – I’m not going to answer all the above questions. But I’m going to explain this, carefully for the slow readers out there….
If you are not a criminal (and that includes people who have committed non-capital offenses in the past and have served their time) should not be denied their rights. They should not be placed on watch lists. They should not be denied guns, freedom of speech, travel or assembly.
The Progressives in this country (Read: Liberals/Marxists/Communists/Libtards/Democrats and morons) are using words to push their agenda. They want to be able to place ANYONE on a no-fly, watch list and thereby prevent them from buying, holding, using, storing or otherwise have rights to guns.
In other words, the idea of background checks is to see if someone doesn’t meet a certain criteria; that criteria will be decided by whome EVER is in charge of the current government, be it GOP, Democrats, Obama, Leftist, Rightist, Libertarian, Marixist, Commie, Pinko or whatever….
Therein lies the problem.
Everyone wants to TRUST the government and it’s time to distrust them with all your hearts.
Our government is supposed to be by the people and for the people; not for themselves, not for profit, not to control us, not to have power.
Do not trust a politician who says they will “ban guns”. Or implement regulations to “check backgrounds” because quite honestly, who is going to watch the watchers?????
You see, we already have several thousand gun laws on the books, federal, state, local, wish lists and made up stuff that some local “authority” can invoke at their whim. Those rules, laws, city regulations, county statutes are all there for one thing. To prevent you and me from having a normal, healthy, happy life pursuing whatever business we like, go where we wish and drink the beer we like.
You see my friends gun control isn’t about guns.
It’s about control.
No-fly lists are great if you’re preventing terrorists. Not so good if you’re preventing granny or grandpa from boarding a plane to go home for Christmas. Or stopping Joe Blow because he happens to have expressed dissatisfaction with a government policy of allowing in random illegal immigrants (who didn’t go through normal regulations and procedures to get into the country).
Our country is under siege. Siege from illegals, from terrorists, from people who want to “change” our country to something it is not, and was never intended to be.
We are here to prevent the latter, more than anything. And we will do so.
No more gun laws will be enacted.
No more “refugees” will be let in, or they will be run out.
NO more Obamas in office. No more Clintons in office. They had their day. And have ruined our country.
If you don’t like guns, by God move someplace where guns are already illegal. If you don’t like the idea this is a Capitalist country, move to a Communist country. I was here first, and my country was the way it was before you tried to screw it up. If you don’t like the fact you can’t get some rich guys money split up amongst all your homies… then homie, move the fuck out of my country and leave the guys alone that have the money.
Those guys create jobs. Or maybe you should just get a job?
The greatest problem with gun control is that anyone can be placed on a list, adjudicated as mentally defective and prevented from exercising their rights.

On November 2, The Daily Beast pointed to recent statements from President Obama and Hillary Clinton regarding the implementation of Australian-style gun confiscation and suggested “civil war could erupt on American soil” if any administration actually tried to confiscate privately owned firearms.
The Daily Beast theoretically agreed that “confiscation on a massive scale” may be “the only way to solve American gun violence,” but they pointed out that it was not realistic and suggested Hillary risks causing irreparable divisions by talking about confiscation then mocking gun owners as conspiracy theorists waiting for “black helicopters” to come take their guns away.
According to The Daily Beast, confiscation was workable in Australia because there was no Second Amendment and the government only had to take 650,000 guns. That is a far cry from the “350 million” believed to be in Americans’ hands.
Yes, “350 million.”
But even more important than the number of guns is the depth of American “devotion” to them. And The Daily Beast observes that it is this devotion–this dedication to the philosophy and tradition underlying the right to keep and bear arms–that turns the mere mention of confiscation into something that could literally rip the country apart.
The Daily Beast put it thus, “The prospect of confiscation—as much as it might, theoretically, reduce drastically or even eliminate gun crime altogether—is simply impossible in the United States.” They pointed to statements by Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson, who stressed that Jews could have curtailed the Holocaust had they retained their guns. The Daily Beast suggests Carson hit on something “Second Amendment enthusiasts are fond of arguing,” namely, “that gun rights are enshrined in the Constitution not only for the sake of hunters or people who want to protect their homes and businesses from criminals, but also to allow the population to resist an overreaching government.”
Breitbart News previously reported that Founding Father James Madison used Federalist 46 to make that very point–that armed citizens could band together and resist their government, should it tend toward tyranny. And he pointed out that this demonstrated American exceptionalism inasmuch as citizens of other nations, lacking arms, also lacked the ability to resist.
The Daily Beast addressed the way Hillary mentioned confiscation only later to mock gun owners for fearing the government might come after their guns:
Clinton can joke all she likes about Americans fearing “black helicopters” taking their guns away, but it is no exaggeration to suggest that civil war could erupt on American soil were the U.S. government to attempt anything remotely resembling what was done in Australia.
The column in The Daily Beast is aptly titled, “Yes, They Want to Take Your Guns Away.”

Well, my “retirement” lasted a few hours at best.
On Friday the 13th 2015, Paris suffered multiple, coordinated attacks killing one hundred-thirty people, murdered by Islamic kooks. Nearly five hundred were injured as multiple gun shots went off, grenades and vest bombs were detonated. For anyone that has either followed me or folks like me, the warnings have been there for America for several years, since 9-11.
The warnings included exact scenarios such as this one. The warnings have also stated that they will come to America, Canada, Germany, the UK and any other place they feel they can get in a few good licks. These people are fanatics, and will bide their time preparing for their one, and ultimate attack because they know they won’t get a second one.
Americans across the United States have had enough of the crap coming from the White House, the lack of ANYTHING coming from Congress and have decided collectively that this is war. The President won’t declare it. Congress is impotent to do anything, but Americans have decided they will NOT take what happened in Paris laying down or with their heads in the sand.
At this point in time, thousands and thousands of Americans have armed themselves waiting for that one, stinking Muslim to pull a trigger in a grade school, a mall, a movie theater, the local coffee shop or on some random street. If it happens woe unto those so-called “moderate Muslims” who sat on their asses, imagining they were helping by pretending to be indignant over ISIS (or radical Islam).
Most of us have given up asking, or telling these people they need to cull out the bad people themselves. They have not done so, so most of us have come to the conclusion there is no such thing as a Moderate Muslim. In fact, in my own visitations to some of the ME, I can assure you that in the 1970s there were “moderates”, but if they existed then, they are long gone now. They were the ones culled from their society long ago. Now, America faces a new dilemma.
America faces our OWN President bringing these alleged “refugees” from Syria. Paris’ own attackers included at least one of those “refugees”. The attackers also included a “French Citizen”, a Muslim. Interesting, no?
Stand firm America. Stand and prepare, because our time is coming.
Somewhere in the United States, Britain, Canada or Australia there will come an attack soon on a scale similar if not dwarfing, the one that occurred in Paris a few days ago.
And yes, it will make you sick. If you think that the murderer who killed little children in Sandy Hook was bad, wait until the agents of Islam step into the arena.
Our children are at risk.
Our malls are at risk.
Movie theaters, sports stadiums, playgrounds, busy cities, intersections and any other location that “looks soft” are at risk.
We’ve listened for too long to the President and members of Congress attempting to disarm us. We’ve had far too many Left Leaning kooks whining about “gun control” and too many cities that have gone for too long as “gun free zones” having dozens murdered each weekend (can anyone say “Chicago” for instance). We have had Pelosi, Reid and Feinstein trying to ban our guns. We’ve had President Obama trying.
And Obama believes that “Climate Change” (another name for “Global Warming”) is more dangerous than terrorism.
And Obama calling gun owners, NRA members and “the rich” dangerous.
And the FBI placing regular people on “watch lists” because they disagree with the President (Wonder how that happens? In a place that declares our ability to disagree with our government sacrosanct?)
I’m not “fear mongering”. I’m telling the God’s honest truth here. We are going to be attacked somewhere in this country. Soon. Like Paris.
But, know this, this country is so large and so spread out and is larger than all of Europe put together so it will be difficult for a terrorist group like ISIS to do anything other than small, localized attacks. Unless they spread such attacks across the US and coordinate them all.
That will be difficult at best, but not impossible. Obviously, it’s not impossible, as Paris proves.
However, expect any attacks in the USA to be focused on one city, probably New York, or some other large metro area worth hitting to kill as many as possible with guns, bombs and fire.
If they terrorists are smart, they will spread what teams they have across the country, coordinate the attacks in several cities at once. Malls would be good, around Christmas. 39 days until Christmas. Black Friday at the malls.
Is this GOING to happen? Probably not tomorrow. But it will. The second we let our guard down.
Am I suggesting we stay home and hide? No.
I AM suggesting that we prepare. If you can do so legally, carry a weapon. On your person, in your car, around you somewhere. If you can’t legally – I won’t make suggestions for you. You can figure things out for yourselves.
But if ONE school is attacked by these heathens and someone in your community has prevented you from being able to help by denying your basic, human rights to keep and bear arms then you should take immediate steps to stop the attackers, and then remove whomever that was from holding office any longer (or in the future if possible).
I am warning everyone in this country now; in particular Leftists, Marxists, Progressives, the sissy Liberals and whiny Victims, it’s time to put up or shut up. You are either Americans, or you Ain’t.
By that I mean, this is a Capitalist, Christian-based, Constitution-founded Republic. Love it, or Leave it. Stop trying to CHANGE IT.
Muslims: Be warned. If you’re brethren try anything here, there will be no stopping pissed off Americans from running you all out of this country once and for all, back to your bombed out, stone-aged countries. Or outright running you into the ocean. If you’re truly one of those alleged “Moderates” you’d better stand up, be counted and point out the fanatics before you find yourselves standing next to them in a jail cell or dead because you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time.
France; While you have at times been the brunt of our jokes about being “cowards” we all know that this was not meant for the people of your country, but for your leaders who have shown themselves in the past to be just that. The people of the United States of America stand with you against the enemies of the West.
Western Civilization is being threatened at its very core right now by Islam. This has happened in the past.
Each time Muslims have invaded Europe, France, Britain, Italy and Spain, the world has answered with a war. Each time the war was called “The Crusade” for good reason, to shove the animals back to where they belonged.
This time, in modern times, if it comes to that, there will be no stopping the West this time. Islam will cease to exist. Korans will not only be burned, but those preaching them, issuing fatwas and attacking others’ religions will be as well. This is my prediction.
I do not wish to see the world immersed again in fire, but the fires will be the fires of hell and nuclear damnation this time. There will not be shiny armor and swords, spears and men on horses. There will be fire from the sky, lead from the weapons of determined and rough agents of God. There will be no “Rules of Engagement” other than the timely words of a Knights Marshal overseeing such a battle as between two knights of the Round Table of “LAY ON”.
There will be no prisoners.
The world be warned.
Good morning all.
I’m sitting at a military installation. For the record it is being passed on the news that literally several thousand at the various bases in my region have been furloughed.
Now – looking around me, I can tell you this is kind of bullshit. A whole lot of government people are at work.
This morning NOAA shut down their web sites. Web sites don’t require a hell of a lot of work – except updating the data on them, so why shut it down? A large portion of the people working for ALL government agencies are Contractors.
In our case, I’m a contractor, money has been allocated already (for awhile, we could be furloughed soon too though).
In the case of NOAA most of the weather people doing updates are contractors.
So shutting down sites is a childish thing the President has ordered.
Yesterday monuments in DC were closed. Today a lot of parks are closed… even if they have roads passing through, the ROADS ARE CLOSED. Childish.
The White House hasn’t been reopened since sequestration… childish.
Do I care if the government “shuts down”? Not really.
All those “economic problems” because “caused” by this are more bullshit problems. They aren’t getting their check on payday – but you can bet your ass they will get their back pay. No one is going to stop spending money because the government has shut down.
Funny…. though, Obamacare hasn’t shut down. It launches the day the government shuts down and it’s being funded.
There is a (slight) possibility that if this continues for weeks there will be some “crashes”. EBT cards won’t get funded soon enough and a lot of government agencies will simply stop working. This means that there will be some ripples, but how bad those ripples becomes is anyone’s guess right now.
I honestly see the GOP caving in shortly because they are getting the majority of the blame, even though it is Harry Reid and the Senate really stopping this.
Yesterday they funded the military, but refused to fund the VA. Congress will get paid no matter what, because it’s written into the constitution they will get paid.
Basically this is a “Fund my stuff, but not your stuff” kind of fight. The country as a whole doesn’t want Obamacare. A few people want it. Liberals assholes who want others to pay for their problems.
I have a job, I have health care – I’m expecting it to increase drastically to the point I will tell them “I don’t want it”. And I’ll take the “fine” and I won’t pay that either. Pretty soon, I will have ZERO INCOME and how cool will that be? I can’t really be fined if I have no money right? Whatever.
To hell with the government, Obama, the Democrats, the GOP – all of them. They are a bunch of lying assholes who want to control every aspect of our lives in America. They want most of our money we make (so they can waste it), they want to control where we can go, when we can go, how much we can save or not save, they want to control OUR HEALTH, they want to control what we eat, read, drink, own, where we live, how we live and whether we live or die.
Not only is it TIME to shut this government down, it’s time to remove these assholes from office.
GET OUT OF OUR LIVES PRESIDENT OBAMA AND CONGRESS!
Diane Feinstein and the rest of you Liberal idiots, go to hell.
