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.

Plausible?

Most of my books are pretty unbelievable. A couple of them are just almost plausible. There there are those that are simply, well, let’s just say even a young child would know it’s not much more than a modern day fairy tale. In one of the books there is a sub plot, one I thought ridiculous, though maybe a tad plausible. In it, there are people that turning teenage gangs lose on certain areas in the attempt to drive the property prices down.

Then, at the right time, the intention was to go in and buy the bargain property. Then, they would make sure the gangs would get rounded up and either jailed or sent out of town. Plausible? I guess, not likely.

Now, I am having second thoughts. Did some of the dems read my book and get ideas from it. I mean, there have been a whole lot of rioting going on and I am sure the dems are behind it. Anyone with a brain in his head can see that the property values are plummeting, some of which is prime real estate.

Now, once the rioting is over, I really would like to know who will be the ones who took advantage of the bargain real estate deals. Do you suppose some speculator will dive in and make some big investments? Do you suppose they will all have D s after their names. One or two just might be members of the House or or Senate. On the other hand, they might hide their possessions by keeping their names hidden in the corporate documentation.

Now, wonder. Is the plot so far-fetched after all. Makes me suspect I should have never written the book.

But it is a good book. It was called excellent by my agent. Thing is, I guess not so many agreed with him. My best selling book is “The Prepper,” and I don’t think it is nearly as good. It shows what I know.

DeRoy Murdock Said Something Worth Repeating

The Dems like to say they want to compromise. Well DeRoy Murdock came up with an excellent idea, though he might not have meant it as a compromise.

The Dems claim that the people who live in Washington DC get taxed but they get no meaningful representation. Well, what Mr. Murdock suggest is that we don’t tax the people who legitimately live within the limits of district.

I would suggest that the Federal government would not miss the revenues and it would be good for the city. People might even move there in an effort to make money instead of bribing congressmen. To be sure, those who want to live outside city and lobby would not be eligible. They would actually have to move in and become residents year-round.

Now let’s see. It would drive the value of the land up. It would somewhat extract all the liberals out of Virginia and Maryland. Moreover, it might actually result in some industry the city besides politics and tourism. It would also free monies to go for city infrastructure.

The thing is, who knows what all would happen after a few capitalist decide to move in and replace the liberals. They might actually have a city befitting of our great nation.

Thing is, it will never happen. Like all good ideas, the dems won’t let it happen. Besides, what they really want has nothing to do with the representation of the citizens of the district. It is all about power. If the district were to be added as a state, the dems would pick up another representative and two senators. To them, that is power. So, never mind the great idea. Their idea of the important thing is to keep control of both chambers and the presidency. Then of course, they will want the Supreme Court as well. That way, their kingdom will be complete and no one will be able to stand against them, other than China.

Oh. Did I mention they already control the media. What little conservative media remains will have to transmit from a ship off shore. It will become Radio Free America. Invariably, it will need to put up with harassment from the Union of Socialist America

A Careless Remark

Sen. Mitch McConnell made what seemed to be a thoughtful remark, but I think he should have thought it through more completely. Basically, he said that Former President Trump did some bad things but that they should be settled in conventional court(s), not by impeachment.

First, it is a horrible thing to attribute such things to anyone without proper proof. At this point, I do not believe that he can substantiate his remark. I am sure that any proof he might have would stand up in any legitimate court.

All evidence presented in the trial was either hearsay or secondhand hearsay. The one witness statement they slipped in at the last minute was was hearsay at best and not one bit of any of it would have been allowed in a real court of law.

Moreover, in the event that there was a suit or prosecution, the defense would be permitted discovery and cross-examination under oath. I really don’t think the dems would like that. In fact, I suspect it is the reason they backed out of having witnesses in the trial. Would the hearsay witness have repeated the story under oath, knowing that rebuttal witnesses might be called to expose her lie. For that matter, would she have even held up under the discovery phase?

There might even be a chance or two for the defense to produce proof of fraud during the election. That just might prove embarrassing for some of the dems. (I say ‘some’ because there are dems who are beyond being embarrassed.)

I really think that McConnell owes Pres. Trump an apology. However, I don’t expect it and I really don’t think the former president expects it. I don’t think McConnell ever liked it when Mr. Trump became President Trump and I think he disliked him. McConnell never did hide his feelings on the matter to well, especially from the beginning.

The fact is that President Trump has been one of our best presidents and he has accomplished more than any one of them. In effect, he made the rinos look bad and it might have bruised some egos. Exposing the truth has a habit of doing that. It is just possible that McConnell has a few bruises. More than that, it might have caused problems with his lobbyists.

Abortion on Demand

Boy, have I gotten an education. I used to think that elections are about this. I used to think elections are about that. Now I know better. You listen to those dummycrats and they will school you too.

It is all about abortion. Not only that, they want abortion all the way up to the point of delivery and a tad beyond. And, oh, yes. They want you and I to pay for it, no matter how detestable we find it. In fact, they especially like to have Christians pay for it.

Sorry. I don’t understand it. No matter how you coat it, it’s wrong. It is murder. The fact that they are taking an innocent life is just an inconvenient fact that they don’t want to face. It is the number one consideration for them, even for some people who call themselves Christian.

If I try to speak to someone on the subject they either yell or put their fingers in their ears. They don’t want to hear about it. As it says in the first chapter of John, when they see the Light they prefer the dark. When they hear the truth, they prefer the lie. It is more convenient.

Control 2

In “Control 1” I wrote about the number 1 way that tyrants can control a people, denying education even to the point of keeping people illiterate.

Today, I would want to go into the second way of controlling the masses, propaganda. In Germany, Russia and China, the communists used propaganda heavily.

If I am going to write about it, maybe I should make sure you know what it is. Technically, propaganda is information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view.

I might emphasize at this point that propaganda is not necessarily lies. Indeed, the best propaganda contains elements of truth. In fact it might not even contain any lies at all. It makes it more believable. The way it works is by leaving out key information.

If we say that John Doe is a horrible man because he cuts people open, it sounds like a reasonable statement. What we are not told is that the man is a highly skilled heart surgeon.

We believe the deceit that he is a horrible man because of the little bit of truth we are told. If we do not give him an opportunity to defend himself, we might actually be in favor of putting him on death row, especially if he admitted to cutting people open.

For decades Pravda was the paper of record in the USSR. Nothing was printed in it without the approval of the government. People who wrote for the paper were specialists in propaganda. They worded their stories so as to make the USSR sound like a grand and glorious nation. Ironically, it did contain some useful information if you could figure out how to parse through the propaganda and find the little bits of truth embedded in it.

However, as I said in an earlier post, the main difference between Pravda and The New York Times is that Pravda was controlled by the government. The New York Times is controlled by the democrats. In many cases the democrats are communists, so it amounts to about the same thing.

Most papers these days are a mere shadow of past journalism. Many journalists risked life and limb to print the truth. Nowadays the so-called journalists risk life and limb to keep the truth out of the papers. What little truth they do print is to convince us of the propaganda.

Let’s take that Atlantic rag that said the president said horrible things about the marines who fought in Bellow Woods. They took a well known fact, that he canceled the memorial trip and then they weaved a few lies into it. They cite autonomous sources (for all we know they are all fictitious. we have no way of knowing.) and then they expect us to believe it.

To some degree it works. Some people want to believe it. It doesn’t matter. The story is referenced by dozens of papers radio and TV personalities. Suddenly it is true, whether or not it is.

The fact is that it really isn’t even a good example of propaganda. It isn’t believable. Any rank amateur could tear apart the story in seconds. Moreover, President Trump was able to produce dozens of sources, real people with real names that called it out for what it was, a blatant lie. Regardless, it did do some damage. It will have to be dealt with by the president’s campaign.

In my own personal opinion, the newspaper did more damage to themselves than to the president. Anyone with a brain in their head will forever doubt anything printed by the paper. Unless it is artificially propped up, it will likely fade away.

Nonetheless, it does demonstrate propaganda and its uses. It also demonstrates why people citing anonymous sources should never be believed. Once I see or hear the word, anonymous, I stop reading or listening. In my mind it would be dumb to continue.

Then again, the democrats are dumb. They continue to read the articles and they quote them as great truths. It is why I call them dummycrats. It is why they are being successfully controlled by the controllers.

Hand to Hand

In the Marines, I learned the phrase to mean dealing with the enemy at close range, generally with or without weapons.  Let’s face it, though the rifle is the marines best friend, sometimes it runs out of ammo.  Sometimes, the enemy closes to a point that shooting him is not an option.  The one who walks away from such an encounter is likely the one best prepared for it.  Also, of course, it does very much depend on the frame of mind.  A hesitation of a fraction of a second can determine who lives to fight another day.

This post, however, mostly has nothing to do with the subject.

You see, one of the methods the dummycrats use to gain power is the giveaway method.  While they give with one hand, they take with the other.  They convince many to look to the government for provision.  To date, we have at least a dozen or so giveaway programs…money for nothing.

In some regards, this can be good.  People who have genuine disabilities have needs and we are a generous people.  In many other countries, the blind must resort to begging.  (In this country, perfectly healthy people beg.)  However, when people without handicaps make it a point to rely on handouts to live, it causes problems.

Most important, it makes it more difficult for those with real needs.  When people approach me for a dollar for gas to get home, I tell them to get a job.  Okay.  Maybe they really need the dollar.  Maybe they really have a temporary problem.  The thing is, for every one that has a real problem, likely 20 beggars are using deceit.  They are professional beggars and the ruin it for those who really have hit a bump in the road.

Nowadays, we have another form of begging, the government dole.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the only folks who asked for handouts were people who really need them.  My guess is that at least 2 out of 3 people could make it on their own without being a drag to society.  (not based on any facts)  They see the opportunity and they grab it.  Some feel a little guilty at first.  Then they look around and realize that they are far from being alone.  Indeed, many are even more guilty.

Their is however, a more menacing problem.  The government owns those who are on the dole.  It means, if you want to continue to receive your payments, you must jump through the right hoops.  Worse yet, you must vote for the right people.  I mean, what happens if and when someone gets into office that expects able-bodied people to go out and get a job?

The check you receive from your Uncle just might also be your leash.  Just maybe, before you cast your next vote, you might reverse your thoughts.  You might start asking the question, which candidate might cause you the most harm.  For as soon as the sun rises each morning, the dummycrats’ ultimate goal is to control you.  With the one hand they give.   All the time, they are getting ready to take your money and your freedom from you with the other hand.

The thing is, it is not just your freedom you are selling, but everyone’s.  I guess, in a way, it really is hand to hand combat.  Only it is not our lives at stake, but our liberty.  Only, from this fight no one will walk away but those who have control.  Once the dummycrats have their control, they will take away the free-everything and make you work.  The thing is, they will also pay less.

You doubt my word, study your history.  It is how they took over Russia, China, Cuba and Venezuela.  Read “Communist Manifesto” by Karl Marx.  He lays out the whole roadmap and the socialists follow it to the letter.  They have told us how they will take us over and they succeed even though we know their plans.

And, by the way, it really isn’t about socialism.  It isn’t even about communism.  Truth be told, those who are trying to take over could care less about either of them.  They are just convenient tools they use.

Their real goal is control.  To gain that control, they give with one hand while they take with the other.  Of course, they don’t this with their money, but with ours.  Still, people blindly follow.  It is the oldest scam in the world.  They dupe by promising something for nothing.  It has worked since the beginning of civilization.  It is a proven method and they have honed it to a grand and treacherous scheme which is based on the false doctrine of communism.

(side note: it is in the Marx’s writings that you find “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.”  Some try to attribute it to the Bible, but it is not there.  It sounds good, but it is folly.  Every place it has been tried it failed, including China.  Without stealing ideas from other countries, they would still be using abacuses for banking.)

In the end, it is simply another power grab, a new dictatorship.  However, this time, it just might go worldwide.  This would mean that the freedom our fathers fought for will cease.  It will be no more.  It won’t even exist in history.  Those in control will make sure of that.

 


By the way, I write books.  You can find my books on amazon.com/author/story_teller.  The reason I bring this up here is that I wrote several books with the concept of controllers and floaters in them.  Unfortunately, there are no floaters, but if there were, they would take on the controllers and keep them, so to speak, under control.

The books are not a series but simply a ‘group’.  They can be read in any order.  However, I would suggest starting with, “The Floater.”  It is the first one I wrote and it establishes some premises.

You can preview most Kindle books on your Kindle, computer and, or many other platforms.  You can do this simply by clicking on the book you want to preview.  On the other hand, you can simply download the preview.  Neither will cost you a dime.  If you should decide you want to order any of my books, most of them are on paperback as well as Kindle,  You will save by using the Kindle format, which, again, can be read on computers as well.  By the way, you can also download them to most of your phones.  I know.  I tried it and it works well.  Oddly, I found it very easy to read.  I even considered using the phone instead of my Kindle.  It would save carrying around two devices.  I abandoned it though.  Reading on my phone really caused a drain on my battery.  Also, the Kindle has a few features that the phone doesn’t.

Listen?  I can’t believe myself.  A couple of decades ago, someone would have considered me crazy for suggesting that you read a book on a phone.  Strange thing these new phones. You can read books, play games, send e-mails and oddly, some people even use them for talking.  There was actually one case where I saw two people talking to each other on the phone…while they sat across a table from each other.

2 Questions I’ve considered

Why is that the CDC refused to isolate people who contracted a disease that was 100% fatal, namely AIDS, and they insist on isolating people with a disease that is likely less that 1% fatal, namely Coronavirus?

OK. I get it.  AIDS is normally not passed through the air.  However, originally they didn’t know that.  So it is that millions died because they got it wrong.  Considering these scientists have a bunch of college degrees, they sure do some dumb things.  Right now, I’m not sure I would trust them to, well, anything.  Certainly, I would not want them running anything such as the nations health system.

It just goes to show what happens when a bunch of people are given a task to run something when they are not elected and are not responsible to anyone, also know as bureaucrats.  Let’s face it, no matter how badly they mess things up, not one will be fired, or even demoted.  Indeed, many will tell us how well they handed the epidemic.

This brings me to the second question, why do we put such important things in the hands of bureaucrats?  Maybe the best thing for us to do for our health is to shut down the CDC.  Right now it is starting to look like a bunch of people trying to protect their jobs, not the health and lives of Americans.

…and by the way, we all know the reason AIDS patients weren’t isolated.  The first time someone tried it, the homosexuals yelled like someone hit their thumbs with a hammer.  (by the way, it was suggested a time or two, but not for long.)

A side note: The isolation would benefit the AIDS patient as well. AIDS weakens the immune system.  People who have it are more susceptible to diseases other people bring to them.

And so it was that millions died so that the nation would serve the god of political correctness.
