Article V

Folks, today is my favorite holiday. There are many reasons for it being my favorite, not the least of which is without it, the other ones would not exist the way they do.
 
America, the last great hope of freedom, protect her at her Constitutional best. Our Founding Fathers knew that a day would come when internal corruption would endanger the Republic they had created. They gave us guidance both in their writings and more importantly within the confines of the Constitution.
 
Thomas Jefferson- “The Tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
 
Within the Constitution they gave a method for rebuking the corrosion we currently face. Article V clearly states a path to reign in an overbearing federal government. It clearly states a blood free method of returning rights to the states and stripping away the ossified layers of the deep state.
 
Madison assumed this safety valve would be used every 50-75 years. We are at least 160 years overdue in his mind.
 
My friends, there are people actively working to return America to her glory. Thirteen states have passed approval for Convention of States, which puts us 1/3 of the way there. http://www.marklevinshow.com/2015/06/11/the-dumbing-down-of-the-article-v-convention-of-the-states-constitutional-process/
 
Please read the article as a primer to do additional research, but understand regardless of your fears or your misgivings. This is the only way we escape further and further creep towards violent fratricide.
 
The Founding Fathers would long ago have taken direct action. Much like they began preparing material goods well before the actual Declaration of Independence on this august day in 1776, many of my fellow Americans have laid in significant stocks, just in case. We, the American Patriot are a freedom loving bunch, so much so that we refuse to live any other way. If Mr. Jefferson’s quote must be fulfilled in order to maintain that freedom, then so be it. But, we would greatly prefer to utilize the construct of Article V within the Constitution, proposed by George Mason and ratified by the rest of the Constitutional Convention.

Czech’s get it

http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/06/29/czech-republic-passes-constitutional-right-to-bear-arms/

You will of course have to forgive the horrible choice of pictures in the article, but…

The Czech Republic has flown a giant middle finger at Brussels and the EU regarding personal rights as well as this being a double down on their anti-muslim invasion (er immigrant) stance.

I think the Czech Republic has gone up a few clicks in possible places I might consider as a fall back position.  Oh who am I kidding.  If the US gets out of control I will be the guy mending the flag or using the spear tip at the end of the flagpole as my last ditch choice.  But still good on you Czech’s for showing the world and the islamic invaders there are still ACTUAL men and sane ones at that in your country.  Protect your women, protect your country and for those women who are self reliant and sick of the BS, do the same.  Never let it be said that a modern woman can’t assume the robe of protector as well.

You would not have wanted to place yourself between my wife and safety of her loved ones.  Well, not if you didn’t want to develop some rather smarting holes in your chest.

Allen West is a great guy, great patriot and in all fairness, this is written by Michael Cantrell.

In the last paragraph, he gives a nod to what SHOULD actually happen, but seems willing to carve out another exception for our “betters”.  Here I stand resolute, no exceptions for the pretty people, for the connected, for the dastardly.

The first two, most people get pretty easily.  The last one might need some explanation.  Our good pal chuckie schumer (intentional lower case) HATES gun rights.  He hates gun rights for common citizens.  He actively works to strip you of your gun (and other) rights, but this type of legislation would ONCE AGAIN allow him to circumvent the law.

Obamacare much.

Good ole chuckie (and his ilk) are no better than me, no better than your grandmother, no better than Mike Lee’s administrative assistant.  Each of us has a life.  Each of us has the GOD given right to protect that life with any and all means necessary, but that stops at the city limits of DC.  That stops at the front door of the post office.  That stops in the entire state of NJ.  But this would end that for our “betters” in even broader cloth than it does now.

I ask you why?  Why should that be allowed.  Make them live with the same restrictions they force on us.  Make them face our same fears.  Make them sit in our chair and maybe, just maybe some of those things will change.

So the Mayor has put the Baltimore police on MANDATORY 12 hour shifts.  Other than burning out the police and getting even more of them to quit, what is that going to do?

SCOTUS has specifically stated, the job of the police is to protect society, not the individual.  So these 12 hour shifts will get the clean up crew there quicker?  Is that the goal?  Or just a way to make the Mayor look like the city is “doing something”, because after all, the busted budget is a taxpayer’s problem not theirs.

Now, on to an item that might actually go a long way to fix the problem, easy citizen carry of a concealed weapon.  Yes, I know.  The horror, only criminals and Baltimore police should be carrying guns (some overlap).

But if we compare Chicago and Houston.  Similar sized towns with three major differences.

Chicago is Democrat controlled, quite cold in the winter and has very few citizens allowed to carry guns

Houston is NOT democrat controlled, does not get quite cold in winter and has a HUGE populations of citizens who carry guns

Lets look at homicide rates:

Chicago:  in 2012 – 1806 murders   — or 38.4 per 100k in a population of 2.7 million

Houston: in 2012 – 207 murders     — or 9.6 per 100k in a population of 2.15 million

Lets guess which of those items leads to the difference.  Free hint, it’s not the weather.

Guess which of those two cities Baltimore is like?  No, you don’t get a second guess.

my response to a traitor

 

It goes way deeper than this, but for some context.

Senator Anitere Flores

404 Senate Office Building
404 South Monroe Street
Tallahassee, FL 32399-1100

Mrs. Flores,

I am a Florida resident temporarily residing in Tennessee.  Just so you know why if anyone bothers to look at the postal stamp.

I want to bring up a topic that may be painful for you, but it may shed some light on your future.  There is a historical reference that you may well want to examine although in truth, it is probably too late for you to not experience the same fate.

Many years ago, there was a political figure,  not happy with his lot in life.  Things were not progressing the way he wanted.  His initiatives were not given the due he felt they should and his base of power was seemingly endlessly eroded by a litany of lessor people who did not last but continuously thwarted him.  After much consternation and frustration, a powerful group of politicians met with him and offered to work with him.  They were made of sterner stuff than the people who always nipped at his heels.  They were indeed movers and shakers, they saw his worth and flatly stated he would be a cherished asset if he would ally with them.

After much consideration, he agreed to join them.  Finally, his true worth had been measured and understood.  Finally, he would be able to make grand changes and people would feel is strength and power.

That man, Benedict Arnold made his choices.  He burned bridges with many who had called him friend.  He did it to fulfill his own vain glorious needs.  In the end, his cause; vanity and the British retention of the Colonies failed.  He died broken, powerless, poor and castigated by society on both sides of the Atlantic.   If you can look yourself in the mirror, you may find the beginnings of the same lot.

Actions have consequences.  Being on the wrong side of moral righteousness is never a good thing and never prospers in the long term.  I should also remind you, those in the conservative and gun communities have long memories, especially for a Mrs. Benedict Arnold.

Sincerely(disgusted),

“A day without women”

The liberal swarm: media, “women’s groups”, democrat pundits… are all up in arms about today being a great protest.  They are all about a world wide protest to prove how important women are to society.  On that premise, my answer is “duh”.  Without women the planet would be devoid of humanity within 100 years, not to mention all the other things women do.

But to their actual desires, the desire to hold countries, companies, school districts, people and I can only assume – men hostage.  Really, is that the best idea?  Is that a good way to portray your message?  Is that a good message to convey?

For one, I resent this.  I resent it for many reasons and I will share one.

This is personal.  EVERY day is a day without MY WOMAN, my wife, my partner for life and beyond, the other half of my soul.  EVERY day, I have to wake up without her endearing smile to great me as I nudge her awake with hopeful cuddles.  EVERY day, I have to figure out a way to make it through the day without refreshers of her wisdom, without her laughing at my vexation with stupid people, without her slipping her hand into mine and that gentle squeeze telling me I am the most important thing in her life.  EVERY day, I have to interact with grey scale, 2D caricatures of my formerly 3D technicolor life.

Some in the conservative movement have created a backlash idea.  “We show up”.

I will tell you with no reservations, my wife was a “We show up” woman.  Her first husband (effectively) refused to earn a living for the family.  So, “She showed up”.  She showed up so well, her part time effort to make ends meet led to a management position and more money than they had made combined when she started.  So he quit entirely.  So, she showed up even more.  That was the story of her life.  Not that other people refused, they did.  But that isn’t the point.  She showed up, then she did.  She did what needed done, then she went a bit further.  Sometimes it was working longer, sometimes it was working smarter, sometimes it was recognizing talent and promoting it.  Sometimes it was doing the dirty job no one else wanted to to.  But in a world 25 some odd years ago when “women could not succeed”, no one bothered to tell this woman who apparently didn’t know any better and did.

She went from a part time furniture “sales girl” at a local furniture store, to the Leader of Regional Expansion for a huge high end furniture chain.  She managed the construction, build out, staffing and opening marketing of 6+ stores as they opened an entire new region of sales.  She went from making just over minimum wage (plus slight commission) to a base salary over $100k with a generous bonus and benefits package.  She did not do this by holding anyone hostage over having a vagina.  She did it by showing up, working hard and smart and doing what it took to keep her children fed, clothed and to provide them an opportunity to succeed later.  She did it without the help of a good husband / partner.  She would even say she did it to compensate for the lack of …

My wife would have heard of this protest and laughed.  If she had still been in furniture management, she would have had a meeting with her staff a week or two ago.  In that meeting, she would have directly told everyone.  Take the day off if you want.  America is a free country.  Just be aware, the company has policies on unauthorized days off.  I will be documenting this meeting.  I will be documenting and prosecuting any unauthorized days off the same way I always do.  Remember actions have consequences.  I am fair and I am firm.  Her intend would have been, I have fairly warned you and I will give your story a fair listen before I send your last check to the address on record.

Have I mentioned recently, I miss that woman like I would miss my right arm?

my take on “stand your ground”

Because good material at an away game needs to come home, too.

There is really only one other option other than “stand your ground”.  I like to call that run and hide.  A recipe for well:

“Run and hide just passes the buck and perhaps the bullet to someone else. Also known as the coward’s gambit. I choose to stand. I may die because of my choice, but I will NOT die a coward and endanger others so that I may cower and grovel. Others may live because I stand. I also choose not to enter gun free zones or gun free states. This gives my choice of standing some true bite.”
