Some Folks Say the Problem is Guns

I was flipping back and forth through the channels. On one channel I watched Biden blame all the crime on Guns. I would go through all of it, but I’m sure you heard it before.

Then I switched to another channel and saw a woman describe how a young man bludgeoned her son to death with his bare hands. Maybe someone can explain to me how it is that a gun figured into that. By the way, it looks as if the murderer will only serve eight years, maybe. Apparently, the St. Louis DA really messed up.

Maybe we should concentrate less on the guns and more on the murderers and those who are supposed to prosecute them.

Compromise: Good or Bad?

Our national history is full of compromises from the beginning. Indeed The constitution has its share of them. The small sates believed the representation should be by state. The large states believed that representation should be by population. So, they compromised. The House is representation by number. The Senate was representation by state.

Perhaps the most well known compromise was about slaves. The south wanted the slaves to count in the census but they did not want them to be represented. The North threw a fit. First, they wanted the slaves to be represented, but if they weren’t, certainly they should not be counted on the census. So they compromised. Slaves were partially counted on the census but were not represented.

When I learned about this compromise, I found it disgusting, even though my family is from the south and most of them would not have agreed with me. I always found the concept of slavery revolting, though it began long before any white man set foot on this continent. And just for those of you who like to poke fun at the Bible, Abraham owned slaves…apparently many of them. Then again, the Bible does not record the history of perfect people. It just records the history, the bad right along with the good.

Then there was The Missouri Compromise. When I found out about it, I didn’t much care for that either. However, it did seem to be a way of keeping the nation from splintering but for a small time. The problem of slavery was a big one that simply did not seem to want to go away, no matter how many compromises.

Ironically, after a few more decades, the problem would likely start waning. With the industrialization, the slave would have become far less profitable, if I might use the heartless term. Steam had already come into its own with trains. It was only a matter of time before the tractors would replace the manual labor. Slaves would have been more of problem than an advantage.

To be sure, in some instances, it is more difficult to speculate about the past than the future. Maybe no one would have industrialized farming if they already had the slaves to do the work. There’s no real telling. All we know for sure is that the Civil War broke out and hundreds of thousands of men died on both sides. Eventually, the compromises failed and the war was inevitable. Besides the disagreement, there were those hot heads on both sides that just wanted to fight.

Regardless of what happened before, the war settled it. The slaves were free, though hardly any of them had any idea how to make a living. Black men and women could not read except for a few rare ones. The Northerners who were sent south for the reconstruction took advantage of that. They paid the Black man to vote, six, seven, eight times.

I think most reasonable people would find that a bad thing. Certainly those in the south did so they used a poll tax to discourage it. The north soon prevented poll tax, even though it was already legal in several northern states.

Later the south came up with a literacy test. This too was dropped by force, though I suspect it would be a very good idea. First, people that vote should know how to read. It does seem to be a simple requirement for such an important thing. Moreover, I suspect the schools would do a much better job of educating our youth, both white and Black if it became a requirement for voting.

Perhaps the worse thing that came out of the restoration of the south was the KKK. As so many such things, it began as a good thing. The carpetbaggers came down from the north taking anything and everything they could in the name of restoration. The south countered the only way they knew. After a few decades the KKK got our of hand and they had to send the FBI in to tame them, although they remained right up to the 1980s. And by the way, most of them were democrat. And by the way, it started out that their fight was not with the African-Americans but with the carpetbaggers.

And so it was, a couple small compromises made to keep the nation together almost caused them to separate. If the south had been more industrialized, indeed the US might today be in two separate parts.

There was another casualty of the whole thing. The Tenth Amendment, the one that reserves rights to the states and to the people. It has become very weak; even to the point that it is hardly brought up any more.

And now, today, the word compromise is all to often heard. When the FOCs want something, they ask for compromise. When the Republicans want a compromise, the FOCs simply dig their feet in and say no way. And so it is that every year we compromise a little more. Eventually, there will be no more room for compromise. The FOCs will have all they wanted and they will have gotten it all by compromise.

All the FOCs want is power. When they have it all, we just might want to bring the KKK back. The problem with that is that it will likely be too late. The FOCs will have all the guns. They will have used some kind of compromise to take them.

Two Undeniable Facts About Crime and Guns

I have said it before, but it bears repeating.

  1. Lock up all the guns and there will still be crime, some of those committing those crimes will still use guns. Some will be stolen, some smuggled in across a very porous border, and some will be homemade.
  2. Lock of most of the criminals, much of the crime will cease.

Maybe that is a good reason to lock up the criminals. Maybe that is a good reason to repeat this to all you know, and perhaps to a few you don’t know. Maybe that is a good reason to tell you friends and relatives. Maybe it is a good reason to tell your senators and representatives. Don’t bother telling Biden. It will only confuse him and he is confused enough already.

Then again, if a person is one of those who is a friend of criminals, also known as FOCs, also known as democrats, it just might encourage them to let more of the criminals out and there are already too many criminals on the street.

Maybe we should make the FOBs live among the criminals for a while…without guards. Maybe that would be a good way to reason with the dems. Nothing else seems to work.

By the way, while we are busy locking up the criminals, let’s make sure we lock up one of the worst, Fauci.

Biden Wants to Talk About the Rise in Crime Today

I heard over the news that Biden wants to address the country on the rise in crime and how to decrease it. It is nice to know that he has finally managed the first step, recognizing that the problem exist.

I can help him on how to resolve the problem.

  1. Never mind the guns. Lock up the criminals. It just might amaze him as to how much good this would do. Oddly, it even helps the criminals.
  2. Seal the border. Many criminals are finding their way into our country and committing crimes here. Frequently they bring guns with them. This point is so simple a first grader could figure it out. Also, drugs are a big part of the crime. Stop the drugs from entering the country and the crime will decrease.
  3. Tell his friends, the Chinese to stop importing fentanyl. They provide most of the supply and it is not because they want to do us any favors. It is possible for one nation to take over another with little more than the use of drugs. At the least he is using them to weaken us.

My guess is that Biden will not do any of these things. He will blame it all on President Trump and tell how important it is to control guns.

Consider the following: If all the guns are locked up, the crime will continue. If all the criminals are locked up, the crime will cease or at least greatly decrease.

By the way, speaking of borders, where is Kamala. Obviously, she does not want to be associated with that fiasco she was put in charge of. Obviously, she has done not one thing to improve it. Come to think of it, I think that is the plan.

I’m still waiting for someone to put Fauci in that orange jumpsuit. Actually, I wouldn’t mind if it is yellow. In a way, that is more suitable for the likes of him.

The First Assault Weapon

Well, there was another killing, 10 people. It was horrible. I’m not going to try to figure out the reason or the method. It just is, immediately, the liberals are no doubt going to declare that they have the perfect law to stop such things. It isn’t true. If you read the law they have drawn up and compare it to the killing, guess what. It wouldn’t have stopped a thing. It would not have altered it at all. In all probability, it would not alter future killings either.

It is always their pattern. They keep using tragedy to destroy the Second Amendment. They always like to use tragedy. It is their means and their method. They don’t really care about the deaths. Their guys cause deaths all the time and they don’t care. As a matter of fact, as they expression goes, they move heaven and earth to cover it up. There are four governors that are presently guilty of thousands of deaths and, I assure you, it does not bother their consciences one bit.

However, as long as we are talking about weapons, please allow me to take advantage of the situation to speak about the Bible. Right near the front of it, you will find the first use of an assault weapon, a rock. With it Cain killed Able. By the way, it is a very effective weapon. David used his sling to hurl one at a giant. All he needed was one to bring down the man who was wearing armor and carried a couple of weapons of his own.

Even today, a rock can be a vicious weapon. They are using them in Israel and they are just as dangerous today as then. If one of those Arabs manages to hit an Israeli, it could kill him. This while many Americans watch the news and do not feel the police are justified at shooting back.

The fact is that a sling in the right hands can be more dangerous than a bow and arrow. Moreover, it is far easier to conceal. Even more, they are not serialized. If the rock is recovered there is no way to determine from which sling it came or who used it. As such, in a way, the oldest weapon just might be one of the most dangerous.

At least, if a killer uses a gun to kill someone, there is a way to prove it.

Pardon Me for Being Simple

If we put the criminals in prison, I would think it would decrease crime.

Why then do the dems want to let the criminals out of prison? Why is it that they want to let them out with low or no bail while awaiting trial?

The only explanation I can think of is that they want crime. I just don’t know why. Two things I do know. It is helping to sell guns and it is helping to promote drug abuse. For those not sharp enough to pick up on it, criminals do sell drugs… to our kids.

The Obvious Question

I don’t understand it.  The question is obvious and, yet, no one asks it.

You ask a gun control fanatic what we should do if someone enters our home and threatens us and they reply, “Call the police.”  This they do in spite of two facts.  One, without a means to defend myself, I might not be able to call anyone.  Also, of course, it will likely take 4 to 6 minutes for them to get to my house.

When a man broke into my house, I was fortunate.  Firstly, the police only took three minutes…after the call.  (They happened to be a few blocks away) That’s close to five minutes from when he broke in.  Secondly, I had two dogs that scared the man off.  Oddly, when he saw my 60 pound pets, he was more scared of them than I was of his gun.

Now, the liberals have decided to de-fund the police.  Some idiots actually want to completely want to get rid of them completely.

So… and here’s the question we all ought to ask, if I have no gun, just who am I supposed to call when a couple of characters break in carrying 9 millimeter handguns?  You get rid of my gun, I can’t defend myself.  You get rid of the cops, the best I can do is to rely on my dogs.

The truth of the matter is, first they want to get rid of our guns.  Second, they want to take our freedom from us.  They do that the same way protection rackets do.  The promise to protect us if we give up our freedom.  The bad thing is… it just might work.

A Whole of Conspiring Going On

There was a movie, “The Conspiracy Theory.”  (It’s a good movie.  If you haven’t seen it, you should.)  In it, a man whose sanity was a little suspect, proved a massive conspiracy.  I have a copy of it, a DVD and I have watched it a number of times.

The first time I watched it, it seemed very unbelievable.  Now, I have second thoughts.

Moreover, it has come to my attention that we are living in a real historic time.  The conspiracy that we have seen unfold before us is far greater than the one in the movie.

The list of conspirators is a very long list, so I will list them in groups.  First, there is the intelligence group: CIA and the rest of that alphabet soup.  Then the congressmen.  We certainly can’t overlook The Justice Department.  Of course, that would include the FBI, which includes likely a dozen or so high level personnel.

Some would suggest that Obama was part of it, maybe Biden as well.  They may or may not have instigated it but they definitely knew and did nothing to stop it.  To be sure, Obama was part of the group that wanted the Paris Accord.  Also, he likely would be very happy with a one world government.

The largest group was the press, those who were constantly quoting anonymous sources.  It is amazing how they managed to suggest all sorts of lies in bold print on the first page of every paper and they put the retractions well buried inside, if at all.

At least, to some degree, federal judges have tried to further the efforts of the conspirators.  Many times, they have chosen to make decisions against President Trump.  In one of the most recent ones, The Supreme Court decided unanimously against the lower court and in favor of the President.  Even the liberal agreed the lower courts were wrong.  The problem is that the lower courts managed a delay tactic and they knew it.

 

Every conspiracy has a purpose.  In this case, it had multiple purposes, but they all sprang from one goal, global control.  In the process, they knew they would have to destroy or circumvent the constitution, especially the first four amendments.  Something of a absurdity, they used the amendments in their attempt to destroy them, such as the freedom of speech and the press.  No one dares to say anything politically incorrect or they are immediately dragged through the mire of the justice of the press.

It also relied on ceding our sovereignty.  This was to be accomplished through the Paris accord and the TPP.  The trick is that any treaty with any other country, if approved by congress, supersedes the constitution.  Oh…and by the way.  This was all coincidental to ceding our sovereignty to the U.N.

The whole process was going along swimmingly for them.  Then, President Trump came along and became president.  Their first big disaster was when he withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and they started realizing the prognosis.  President Trump was not a globalist and he did not intend to let the globalist have their way.  Then, of course, he withdrew from the Paris Accord.  He saw right through the fog of the ecologists and chose not to cede any part of our sovereignty to the treaty.

Even before he took the oath of office, the conspirators were busy trying to destroy him and his administration.  One by one they have been busy trying to pick off members of his cabinet, this while setting traps and roadblocks.  The colluders knew that if the new judges believed in The Constitution, their efforts might be set back a decade or two.  Already, they realize some of their fears.  While the liberal lower courts continue to rewrite the law, The Supreme Court has now made several decisions in his favor and, ultimately, in the favor of our country.

Now it would appear that the documentation of the above is being exposed.  In case after case, the dummycrats, in public, tell of the Russian collusion.  However, in secure sessions, not one of them admits to knowing any anything about Russian collusion.

So, they either lied to us, the public, as part of a conspiracy or they lied to Congress under oath.  Somehow, I am more prone to believe that they were lying to us.  Lying to the public might have consequences, but it is not against the law.

In summary, it would appear that the only collusion going on was by the dummycrats.  Only, it is legally called conspiracy.

The historic fact is that we barely avoided a coup d’état by the globalists.  If they had succeeded, there would soon be no more constitution.  Our national government would soon be replaced by some kind of one world bureaucracy, possibly the U.N.

It is no wonder they hate President Donald Trump.  He foiled their takeover, at least for the short term.  If the dummycrats should regain control (and power) it would not be long before they would be right back on track.  President Trump will have only made enough of a bump in the road to slow them a few years.

I hope and pray that doesn’t happen.  I don’t like movies where the bad guys win.

 

Oh!  One more little detail.  Guess who is footing the bill for this conspiracy.  That’s right.  We, the tax payers.  (This includes all that was spent in framing Gen. Flynn.  It was likely 4 or 5 million dollars, maybe more.)

Don’t expect any of these conspirators to pay the price for their dirty deeds.  Dummycrats never go to jail, only republicans.

The Preppers

As a lark, I wrote a book, “The Prepper.”  I never intended it to be serious, just fun.  There are about a dozen or so people who have read most of my books and they give me feedback.   Every one of them has told me that “The Prepper” is my best book.  Apparently, they are not the only ones with that opinion.  It outsells all my other books combined.

I would not have brought it up but it does seem to be relevant to our current events.  Of all the things that dooms day preppers prepare for, the one that I always thought of as least needed was the idea of preparing for an epidemic.  Now look.  It would appear that I must reconsider.

Note: While we out here fight to avoid the virus, there are possibly doomsday preppers who have retreated down into their bunkers completely safe from the little things.  I did a little research on the things.  They are about 1 millionth of one meter, too small to be seen with any standard microscope.

It would seem I should have done some preparing.  I am now down 4 rolls of TP and every time I walk into a store, the shelves are empty.  I haven’t been able to find any rubbing alcohol for at least a month.  I can’t even find the little pads I need as a diabetic.

I noticed the other day that I was running low on 409 spray cleaner and decided to get some more.  Not going to happen.  None of that around or anything like it.  Oddly, there is plenty beer.  Can’t quite figure that.  Is it so important that they want to make sure we have plenty or is that they don’t want to lose the chance to sell the high profit proeduct.  I did notice that the PX’s in Vietnam never ran out of beer but there were times that there were shortages soft drinks.  (Just an observation)

Needless to say, I have a whole new concept in priorities.  Once this is all over, if I survive, I will become something of a prepper.  I will make sure I always have at least 200 rolls of TP and at least a dozen bottles of rubbing alcohol.  Oh, yes.  I will go out and buy more of the alcohol pads any time I have less than six boxes.  It might seem a bit extreme and I used to think so too… a couple of months ago.

Now, I wonder if it will be enough.  It’s not that expensive, but it does cause problems when we run out.

By the way, I would appreciate if you buy my book and I think you will have fun reading it.  Conceivably you might be able to find it by just entering “The Prepper” on the search line.  I don’t know.  It worked for me but it might not work for anyone else.

If the above doesn’t work, you can go to my author’s page or do a search on me, Ben Rhodes on Amazon’s web site.  As always, I always appreciate comments or questions.  Just please keep them short and G rated. My E-mail is Kaay@att.net.

One more kind of side note.  My first book is, more or less, about a ring.  After reading it, I realized something.  It’s better to write people.  Hence “The Prepper” is about people and specifically a prepper named Will.  It is not about prepping.  Apparently, this disappointed one person who read it.  Sorry.  I guess I should have made it clearer.

So, other than “The Secret of the Ring,” all my books are about people, not things.

Definition of a Milli-second

Some time ago, I had a laugh when I heard a definition for the millisecond as the time between when the traficlight turns green and the when the person in the car behind you honks his horn.  I suppose this is still true but we need to add another entry that just might be a little more accurate.  I have observed that it is now about the time between when someone goes on a shooting rampage and the time the dummycrats call for gun laws. (You might notice I waited a while before I wrote anything on the subject.  I actually have some respect for the survivors of those who were killed and those who were wounded.)

I find this very disrectful.  Then again, why should I expect the dummycrats to be respectful. That would require some intellegence.

It is just another reason I call them dummycrats.  None of the laws they suggest would have stopped any of the shootings.  I might add that one man in California killed two men with a knife.  Moreover, he took a gun from one of those he stabbed.  No gun law would have stopped those killings.  Moreover, had he not been stopped, he could have used the stolen gun to kill many more.

By the way, lest anyone forget, one of the most successful mass killers in this country used a truck full of fertilizer.  Two terrorists used pressure cookers and likely leaned the method on the web.

When I was in the Marines, I carried an M16 rifle, the military version of the AR15.  I suppose you might call the M16 an assault weapon, but it is capable of both semi and fully automatic.  An AR15 is not an assault rifle.  It only looks like one.  It is strictly semi-automatic.  There are many other rifles that fire semi-automatic.

The truth of the matter is, all known; the dummycrats simply want to rid the country of guns.  They don’t like the second amendment.  Actually, they don’t much like any of The Constitution.  It is why they keep trying to alter it or ignore it.  Oddly, they even use it to destroy it.  The truth is socialism is not compatible with The Constitution.  It is why the dummycrats keep trying to do away with it.

Let’s take the example of the First Amendment.  This is where you can say what you want, as long as it doesn’t interfere with their ideas.

Now I have one more definition for you: Racist.  This is when someone does or says something the dummycrats (specifically the squad) don’t like.  The label is applied automatically, sort of, like when a knee jerks when a doctor applies his little mallet to it.  By the way, using the term requires about the same amount of intelligence as the doctor’s mallet.  About the same intelligence of the dummycrat.
