If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization,
it expects what never was and never will be.
Thomas Jefferson

first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around
them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up
homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered.”

There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties,
each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other.
This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest
political evil under our Constitution.
John Adams

In Republics, the great danger is, that the majority
may not sufficiently respect the rights of the minority.

– that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has
been powerless to prevent it. In either case it is unfit to exist.”

“No man’s life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session.”
Mark Twain

“I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe . . . Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence, I must confess that I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing. Make them intelligent, and they will be vigilant; give them the means of detecting the wrong, and they will apply the remedy.”

Daniel Webster

PETA! Mooslims! Actors! Narcissist! Video Games? Vet Abuse. No Envoy? Silence…

“History affords us many instances of the ruin of states, by the prosecution of measures ill suited to the temper and genius of their people. The ordaining of laws in favor of one part of the nation, to the prejudice and oppression of another, is certainly the most erroneous and mistaken policy. An equal dispensation of protection, rights, privileges, and advantages, is what every part is entitled to, and ought to enjoy… These measures never fail to create great and violent jealousies and animosities between the people favored and the people oppressed; whence a total separation of affections, interests, political obligations, and all manner of connections, by which the whole state is weakened.”

Benjamin Franklin, Emblematical Representations

Firearms Company Striking Back At Anti-Gun NY By Cancelling All Orders For NYPD

York Arms said:

“Based on the recent legislation in New York, we are prohibited from selling rifles and receivers to residents of New York. We have chosen to extend that prohibition to all governmental agencies associated with or located within New York.

As a result, we have halted sales of rifles, short-barreled rifles, short-barreled shotguns, machine guns, and silencers to New York governmental agencies.

Let’s Stop Acting Like There’s a Debate about the 2nd Amendment

Hmm, I wonder … If he really had the support of the American people, why is he so busy trying to disarm those who supposedly love him so much?

And all the while Obama and his administration are busy trying to disarm the American people by conjuring up criminals guilty of some sort of gun crimes as an excuse for new gun legislation.

Well, then, let me help: This administration need not look any further than within its own ranks.

And this, friends, is the very reason we are an armed people.

 Networks Promote White House Fearmongering on Sequester Cuts, Ignore it Was Obama’s Idea

The NBC, ABC, and CBS evening newscasts on Tuesday all recited the same White House talking points as anchors and correspondents wrung their hands over the upcoming sequester budget cuts set to take effect on March 1. While all three broadcasts touted President Obama using “dire language” to warn against the cuts – only amounting to less that three percent of the federal budget – none of them noted that it was the President’s idea in the first place.  At the top of NBC Nightly News, anchor Brian Williams sounded the alarm: “Deep impact….deep budget cuts poised to have a major impact on the military, law enforcement, even food inspection.” In the report that followed, correspondent John Yang fretted: “Through 2021, it means cutting $85 billion a year, half from the Pentagon, half from non-defense programs. Everything from education to national parks to Meals on Wheels.” Yang failed to mention the current annual federal budget is around $3.5 trillion.

Where Will You Run?

When they come for your Freedom?

If you do NOT stand and shout out “ENOUGH ALREADY” today…

It never occurs to these “freedom loving” Americans that freedom can’t exist when you are no longer free to say no to being forced to hand over your rightful property to other people to whom you properly speaking owe nothing – other than goodwill. That if “the children” becomes a justification for theft, then any other reason is just as good a reason.

But don’t dare say it out loud…. these freedom-loving Americans will very quickly show you just how much they actually believe in freedom… including even the freedom to speak your mind, if your mind differs in any meaningful respect from  the parameters of orthodoxical Republican or Democrat parameters.

Mob rule is coming, the incessant whine of those whom want, from those whom do not produce, from those whom steal what they want. Be those individuals or those we elect.

Marxism and socialism sounds so easy when you listen to today’s politicians.

They promise everything, but fail to tell you how everything will be supplied, whom will supply it.

So when they come for your ‘stuff’, your Freedom, for what you have worked so hard for…

Where will you run?

Molon Labe I say. Life is not worth living without Freedom..

The British Disease?

Found at Dissecting Leftism

The Great Devaluation

Is America catching the British disease? That America is a much more religious country may be its salvation. In Britain, more people go to the mosque on Friday than go to the Church of England on SundayThere’ll always be an England, people used to say. Now the emphasis is on used to say. Because one report after another from that once sceptered isle is less than encouraging. For years the talented Anthony Daniels, who also writes, prolifically, under the name Theodore Dalrymple, has been chronicling Britain’s social disintegration. His reports from once jolly old England make it sound like something out of “Clockwork Orange.”

Maybe it was his day job as a prison doctor that gave Dr. Daniels so sour a perspective. Let’s hope his is a skewed vision. Because in this Age of Obama, Americans are being told to adopt policies that seem strikingly similar to the just rejected Labor Party’s nostrums — in everything from health care to taxation, political correctness to economic regulation, labor law to foreign policy.

If that’s going to be the shape of our progressive, Social Democratic, oh-so-advanced future, let’s get off this roundabout now and head straight back to the past.

Skimming a choice selection of headlines from the Daily Mail’s website is not exactly a cheery way to start the day:

“A-level student, 17, stabbed to death at home in front of parents ‘was victim of mistaken identity’ “

“Soap actress left blind in one eye after being attacked with wine glass in bar row”

“50,000 British women warned their breast implants could explode”

“Council to ban the word ‘obesity’ — so fat children don’t get offended”

“Teenager who blinded man with her stiletto heel in drunken brawl is jailed for 18 months”

“Man suffocates to death after falling into clothes recycling bin”

“Nurse who told heart patient to mop up his own urine is free to continue working”

“Woman, 86, threatened by M&S security staff for eating biscuit in wrong part of the store”

And so depressingly on. Britannia, where have you gone?

Mark Steyn, who writes the back-of-the-book essay for National Review, picked out these headlines to illustrate Britain’s social disintegration. His conclusion: “What strikes you about the peculiar combination of drunken depravity, random violence, petty officiousness and political correctness is the sheer bloody pointlessness of it all.”

You may suspect, as, as I did, that the game is fixed, that these news items can’t be representative of British society. Or there wouldn’t be much of a society left. Surely the quotes were selected for their scare value. In order to paint the dreariest picture possible of what has happened to the mother country. (Remember when Americans were allowed to refer to Britain as the mother country — before the phrase was deemed too Anglocentric to be acceptable in the public prints? Now even the bust of Winston Churchill has been exiled from the White House.)

Unfortunately, Mr. Steyn has some statistics to back up the impression left by the headlines he chose. He notes that that the UK now has “the highest drug use in Europe, highest incidence of sexually transmitted disease, highest number of single mothers,” and that “marriage is all but defunct, except for toffs, upscale gays, and Muslims.” The whole country seems to have become downwardly mobile. Britain now has become an example to beware, not emulate.

If the news from Britain is a preview of the American future, it’s time for an immediate U-turn. Before it’s too late. For, despite the emphasis on political and economic issues in recent presidential campaigns (“It’s the economy, stupid!”), it’s the culture that counts.

A country can rebound from economic difficulties and even political demoralization — see the New Deal, or the Reagan Years — but how restore the social fabric, the very culture of a country, once it’s been allowed to deteriorate? The collapse of educational standards may be only the most pervasive and influential symptom of what ails us.

How turn it all around? It can be done, but not easily. And the longer the challenge is ignored, the greater it grows. Until a tipping point is reached, and then it may be too late. Which is what’s so worrisome about Great Britain, where more than the pound is being devalued. A whole, distinctive culture is being lost. And if England is lost, as every English speaker in the world must know in his heart, the world is.

It is such visions of the American future that may explain the rise of the latest political phenomenon on this side of the pond–the Tea Party, a variegated collection of Americans who have only this much in common: Like Howard Beale in Network, they’re mad as hell and they’re not going to take this anymore! They’re opening the nearest window and shouting their rage. Yes, they’re reactionaries — but they have much to react against. What intelligent observer wouldn’t?

No, the Tea Partiers may not know what to do about the problem, but at least they know we’ve got one. And they’re not going to be all nice and quiet about it.
