No Guns For You!

No Guns For You?  ‘Out West’ or even in my much beloved Midwest (not including much of Illinois of course) we have a hard time understanding the Eastern Mindset…I’m not talking about the Asian Mind but the Eastern (US) Mind.  With notable exceptions like West Virginia, New Hampshire, Maine and much of Pennsylvania there is this attitude toward liberties and even Constitutionally protected liberties that the rest of us just don’t understand…to quote Mr. Sampson (below) ‘it just doesn’t make sense’ to us.  Recently the Massachusetts legislature pulled wording from a proposed law that would have allowed the local Chief of Police to determine who could and who couldn’t purchase long arms (they already have this power for hand guns).  No due process, no pretense of complying with the requirements of the Second Amendment…just dictatorial powers to determine who is and who isn’t allowed to protect themselves with a rifle or shotgun. Wayne Sampson, the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association epitomized the arrogance of those law enforcement officers prospective overlords more concerned with their personal power than supporting their oath to the Constitution when he exclaimed: We, as an association, believe that it’s unconscionable that if we determine a person is unsuitable to carry a handgun, that they can then turn around and apply for a Firearms Identification Card, which allows them, by law, to purchase rifles and shotguns. And there’s no way we can impose any restrictions on that. It just doesn’t make sense. Wayne Sampson, the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association I agree Mr. Sampson… at least with that last part…‘It just doesn’t make sense.’ It doesn’t make sense for local law enforcement to be able to abridge a citizen’s natural and constitutional right to defend him or herself by executive fiat or whim It doesn’t make sense to...

The Constitution or Good Ideas? – Today’s Quote

This Is How Empires Collapse – Today’s Quote

Politicians cannot get this through their head that the economy functions always in anticipation of future events. They are just crazy – although not out of their mind entirely just yet. They can read a script, but they are incapable of understanding the people or math. These people are simply beyond control. All they can see is the immediate issue to survive day-by-day. They have absolutely zero comprehension of what they are doing and even less understanding of what happens when there is no more money they can raid. Those at the helm of the world need no elite-conspiracy. They are too stupid to have long-term plans beyond 30 days. This is how Empires Collapse – they are following the precise step-by-step guide for total chaos. Martin Armstrong via What is Your’s Ain’t Yours | Armstrong Economics Andrew’s Note:  Armstrong is commenting on British Prime Minister David Cameron’s expressed desire to raid British bank accounts and the anticipated bank run that will proceed it.  If you think that wealth confiscations can’t happen in Europe than ask the people of Cyprus.  Makes you a little nervous that we’ve embraced European socialism in the U.S. doesn’t it… FacebookPinterestGoogleRedditTwitterTumblrEmailPrintPocketMoreLinkedInLike this:Like...

Civil Forfeiture – Today’s Quote

The civil forfeiture law — if something so devoid of due process can be dignified as law — is an incentive for perverse behavior: Predatory government agencies get to pocket the proceeds from property they seize from Americans without even charging them with, let alone convicting them of, crimes. Criminals are treated better than this because they lose the fruits of their criminality only after being convicted.

Turned Over To The Profiteers – Today’s Quote

The financial system has been turned over to the Federal Reserve Board which administers the finance system by authority of a purely profiteering group. The system is private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people’s money. Representative Charles Lindbergh, Sr. via ​FED up?

Picking Up A Pack Of Trojans – Today’s Quote

The opportunity society tells individuals that their rights, as granted by their Creator, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The dependency society confuses privileges with rights and sells everything as a right: the right to own a home, rights based on sexuality, a right to birth control–that one I can’t really understand. What prevents manufactured women’s rights advocate Sandra Fluke or anyone else from walking into CVS or Walgreens and picking up a pack of Trojans for the weekend?

The Epidemic In West’s Neighborhood – Today’s Quote

When I revisit my neighborhood in Atlanta, I see the blight facing most urban neighborhoods: Section 8 housing, food stamps, EBT card signs, and the breakdown of the family. Of all the consequences of the Great Society programs and the War on Poverty, intended or otherwise, the destruction of the black family has been the most disastrous. More than 70 percent of black children are born outside of marriage. That is an epidemic.

Lesson in Irony – Today’s Quote

Today’s Lesson In Irony: This year, the Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and Food Stamps ever; to 46 million people. Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us “Please Do Not Feed the Animals.” Their stated reason for the policy is:  “The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.” Thus ends today’s lesson in irony. Unattributed, Submitted by P.I.G., the Prepper Investment Guru Andrew’s Note:  We’ll be bringing you a number of quotes submitted by PIG over the next two weeks…enjoy…and thank you PIG.
