Fully Automatic Assault Rifles

I don’t know but I suspect there is one aspect that few have considered as a result of the fiasco in Afghanistan. Consider: we left thousands of M16 rifles behind during the Biden retreat. Some of those just might end up being for sale to those coming up through the Mexican border.

May I remind one and all that the M16 is a true assault rifle. It is able to fire fully automatic with the flip of a switch. It looks very similar to an AR15, a semi automatic which the FOCs are trying to outlaw. I have fired an M16 fully automatic as part of my training. It takes a second or two to fire twenty bullets. Magazines are available that hold 70 bullets, and it takes about a second and a half to change magazines.

No truly law abiding citizen would ever try to buy something like that, but the criminal element would certainly love to get their hands on a few of those things, along with a few thousand bullets. I would say I can only imagine what the criminal type could do with something like that, but I can’t. Three or four men with these things could do things even I can’t imagine, especially if they know how to use them.

So now, we can thank our fearless leader for the possibility of the criminal element using M16s on our police or crowds or whatever they can imagine. However, it doesn’t end there. There are likely also machine guns and 50 caliber guns that can shoot through engine blocks and hit a target a mile away. I would suspect there are also a few other things in there, like anti tank weapons and M79 grenade launchers.

I am going to terminate my imagination there. It already bothers me far to much. Regardless, if these things find their way north of the border, we’ll know it. If they are used on the Mexican authorities, they will know it. If any of this makes its into Canada, they will definitely know it.

It is the sort of thing that happens when people like Biden don’t think ahead. Well, in this case, he likely was not thinking at all. YEP! This mistake will not go away with an eraser! I sure wish it could.

Counterfeit

In Matthew 17, Jesus told Peter to catch a fish and take a four drachma coin from its mouth. I was young the first time I heard the story. It seemed odd to me. Jesus did not need the fish. He could have made dozens of the coins with his spoken word. I suppose he could have also used many other methods as well. But, he told Peter to get the coin from the fishes mouth.

In the musical, “Fiddler on the Roof,” we could hear the whimsical song, “If I Were a Rich Man.” I totally enjoyed the song long before I saw the movie or play. To be sure I identified with it. Actually, I still do. I’m not greedy. I would be very happy with a million or two. I would not turn down five or six. It would not solve all my problems but it would solve most of them.

What does the one thing have to do with the other? Although God can make money, He rarely if ever does. On that day, when Jesus was asked about the taxes, if Jesus produced the money out of thin air, that would have been an act of counterfeiting. The money He would have made would have been produced outside the authority of the government and Jesus recognizes authority, even human authority.

I don’t know how that works completely, but had he made that coin, that would have been a sin, and Jesus does not sin. It does go beyond that. Let’s say God took pity on me, and maybe a few thousand others. He spoke the word and instantly, we would all have five million dollar bank accounts. That would not only be counterfeit in mass, but it could be very damaging to our economy.

That money represents work, skill and knowledge. When it is just given to me, it short circuits the system. It can and would likely negatively effect our economy. Suddenly, there would be millions more money in circulation and hence, each dollar would be worth less. Therefore, God would be improperly taking the representation of the work of thousands and giving it to me. I would benefit from the work of others wrongfully, as would the others.

So now, the government, in all its wisdom has decided it is okay to redistribute wealth. I get to benefit from the sweat of your brow and you get to benefit from the sweat of mine. Never mind the product of our work. Never mind my laziness. All those who have worked so hard to build those apartments. Never mind them. Let them go into debt while those who refuse to work live in the fruits of the work of their landlords.

God does not redistribute wealth because he knows it is not right. Why should the government know better.

Communism is a relatively new economic system. Capitalism is as old as trading. I will give you so many of these if you give me so many of that. I will help you build your home if you will provide food and clothing for me. If you provide me a boat, I will provide fish for you.

The coinage only made it all simpler. At first it had no government backing. However, over time, only the governments coined the money. At least that is the way it was supposed to work. Then they started taxing to pay for mutual defense and roads and such. Now it has gotten into a tangled mess, but it works the same.

The problem is that that there are a number of things that throw things out of kilter. There is, of course robbery. As mentioned a fore, counterfeiting. Then there is gambling and lotteries. In the blink of an eye, gambling can transfer the equivalent of large amounts of work from one to another. Such things throw the capitalists system out of kilter.

The man that loses all his wages cannot pay his rent. The gambling sites draw crowds of unsavory types. And then of course, those that own the “house” live on the fruits of the labor of others without adding one thing to society. Indeed, they become the “rich men” as sung of in the above song.

The work they do is a counterfeit work. But they are not alone. Those in government know how to counterfeit their contributions to society too. They tax some while they give to others… all the time skimming some off for themselves. It is the most important reason to keep government small. It is one of the most important reasons to limit the power of government. It is the biggest reason FOCs get involved in government.

It is one of the biggest reasons that governments fail.

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.
