Idealism Verses Experience

There are those who get into government with real business or military experience.  Then there are those who bring nothing but their idealism into government and try to use the government to run the nations businesses.  Do I really need to explain which party is which?

By the way, I might mention, most of these idealists never worked a day in their life outsied of politics or volunteer projects.  They don’t really have the slightest idea what makes things work.

Real Treasure

I heard an interview of Trace Adkins on TV a few years back.  For those that know me, this will sound strange.  I am not a country/western music fan, though there are a few songs I do like by country singers.  At any rate, the question was put to him, “Do you buy gold?”  The obvious reason for the question was asked in relation to any prepping that he might do in the event of disaster.

Casually, Mr. Adkins replied, “No.  I can’t eat gold.  I buy land, seed and lead.”

Now there is a man with some real common sense.  If things get bad, the man that has gold will easily part with it for a loaf or two of bread.

Repeatedly, I hear these guys on TV trying to hawk their silver and gold on TV.  If the gold is worth so much, why do they wan to sell it?  Personally, I see three problems with this.  Invariably, I will always have to pay more for the gold than what it is worth.  In the event that I sell it, I no longer have any treasure.  Moreover, no one will ever pay me what the gold is worth.  Finally, gold, in a true disaster won’t have any value at all.  You can’t eat it.

On the other hand, if I am the only one around with grain, I can pretty much set my price.

The books are full of stories of men seeking treasures.  The truth is frequently we already have the real treasures.  Here in this country we have a real treasure that is generally overlooked and taken for granted.  Our founding fathers paid for it, many with their lives, many with their limbs.  Many have fought and died to hold onto the treasure.  By now, I am sure most of you know the treasure of which I speak, freedom… also known as liberty.  Since the Revolutionary War, this country has not know tyranny.  There are few countries in this world that can truly say that today.  …Certainly not Russia.  …Certainly not China.  …and most certainly not Iran.

Of all the treasures on this earth, it is likely the one treasure most worth fighting for.  Yet so few are willing to fight for it.  Worse yet, there are those who stand in the way of those who are willing to fight for it.  To be sure, remember, it is far easier to maintain the freedom we have than to fight for the freedom we lose.

I write this because there are those who want to take our treasure from us.  They don’t want us to have it.  They want to run our lives and tell us what to do and what not to do.  They want to tell us how to raise our children and they want to teach our children the way tyranny.

I ask you, what good is gold if you can’t buy anything with it.  What good is security if you are being told what to think.

I refer you back to the above quote.  The land and seed is good for survival.  The problem is that there are always people trying to take your treasure.  So.  To hold onto the land and seed, a person must also have lead… and the willingness to use it.

For sure, the more I think of Trace Adkins’ words, the more true they ring.  There would not be survival without all thee: land to raise crops, seed for the crops, and lead to protect the other two.

If we are not willing to protect our treasure, there are people that will take it from us.  Maybe you don’t care.  Fine.  You lack the courage and conviction.  Then stand aside and don’t hinder the rest of us.

Controllers and Floaters

The following is the premise of a group of my books about a group of people called floaters and another group called controllers. While neither group really exists, I do believe there are people who like to control other people. Some were called kings, some emperors, pharaohs, etc, they do their best to take control of all the world. They are also on a smaller scale. Some are politicians, some are businessmen, some lawyers. In the previous post, the controllers are the communists. Unfortunately, those protecting the Vietnamese gave up and let the communists come in and take control.

In the world I’ve created in my books, the controllers have natural enemies. They are called floaters. After you have read the below premise, you might decide you want to visit my little world. I think it is better than the real one. If only floaters were real. Maybe then, we would not have health care systems that require women to be covered for prostrate cancer. We would not require men to be covered for miscarriages.

The following is an excerpt from the foreword in the book, “Wolf.”

————————————————————————
There are controllers in this world. They are part of a large organization that want to control the world as well as each other. Some go into business and use the business laws to take control. Some go into politics. Others simply linger in the background and provide backing for those who are willing to do their bidding.

Though controllers use various methods and though they compete viciously with each other, they will unite in a minute for one purpose, to kill floaters. The floaters are the only people who can stop them from reaching their goals. As long as one floater lives, they know they cannot achieve world dominance.

For this reason, they will stop at nothing to kill any floater. For this reason, floaters must work quietly. They must never reveal who they are. If they do, they know that they will be hounded by the controllers until they are dead.

Not all controllers know about floaters. It is something they keep within the higher ranks. It would seem contrary to their desire to destroy the floaters, but if the floaters were revealed to the public, the controllers would also reveal themselves. If they and their purposes were revealed, it would make their goals unattainable.
—————————————————————————

Unfortunately, there are no floaters. At least some of us must take up our cause and fight for our freedom every day. If we don’t, the controllers will take it from us. They have already attacked our freedom of speech, religion and the right to use weapons to protect ourselves.

Most of us are like the farmer in my previous post. We are completely oblivious to the fact that the controllers, the real ones are after our freedom. One day we will wake up and find we are under the control of a controller who calls himself, president. He will take control by promising us free food, housing and phones.

A Little Irritant

THE AR-15 IS NOT AN AUTOMATIC WEAPON!!  It fires one bullet each time the trigger is pulled.  That means it is semi-automatic.  There are many who seem to have other ideas.  It would be very nice if anyone reading this would tell others.

Some people who consider themselves experts on guns get it wrong continually, some within the government, some who teach in our universities.

As a Marine I qualified with the M-16 two years.  I carried one in Vietnam for almost a year.  I do know the difference between the AR-15 and the M-16.  The M-16 has a three position selector: safe, semi-automatic and automatic.  …and by the way, it and all automatic weapons are already illegal.  The is no need to pass a law to make them illegal.  The AR-15 looks the same as an M-16, but the selector has only safe and semi-automatic.

I know not many will read this.  So please tell your family, friends and neighbors.  You might tell your college professors too.  There is no sense them remaining ignorant of the facts.  Then again, they might already know.  They might prefer the distortion of the facts just to sound more alarming.  I have known them to do such things.

Thou shalt not murder

I don’t want anyone to get the wrong idea.  The death of those kids in Florida is horrible.  Moreover, the killer in this case almost got away.  Had it not been for one observant police officer, the killer might have remained free for hours, if not days more.  Conceivably, he might have even left the country.  The mass murderer was already miles away from the school when he was taken.

I have, however noticed a pattern.  Every time there is a mass killing with a gun, the media goes nuts, “We must get rid of guns, and right now.  Never mind the second amendment.”  Never mind that the next killer likely already has his gun or will find a way of getting one.

The fact is that killers don’t need guns.  There’s no telling how many boys were killed by Rock Hudson, and he is upheld by society as a hero.  (By the way, I refuse to see any of his movies because of it.  Anyone who has a brain and really feels badly for murder victims should do the same.)  He contracted AIDS and continued to practice his homosexual lifestyle, knowing he might infect the young men.

During the outbreak of AIDS, homosexuals, some who knew they might have AIDS, insisted on giving blood.  Arthur Ashe (a prominent tennis player) became one of their victims when he was given a transfusion.  The federal government was complicit when the CDC refused to believe that the disease could be transferred through the blood.  To this day, there is no attempt to isolate people who are infected, though they finally figured out that they should do what they can to keep infected blood out of our supplies.

If they had adopted the proper infection procedures as soon as the disease was detected, it would have saved thousands, if not millions of lives.  Well, they did get one thing they were after, billions of dollars on research.  To a small degree, they have had some success.  However, for most that contract it, AIDS is a death sentence.  …and, by the way, I have not heard one homosexual apologize.  (Lest someone remind me, drug abusers deserve some of the blame.  In many cases, though, the drug users and the homosexuals were and are the same.)

Those doctors who perform abortions, especially late term abortions commit murder on a regular basis.  Sometimes, the mother suffers physical damage as a result.  Planned Parenthood likely has as much or more blood on their hands as Hitler.  In defiance, they claim they are helping the mother.  In truth, all they want is the money.  If you doubt me, remove the money and see how long the practice continues.  Abortion is a multi-million dollar industry that heavily lobbies congress, especially Dems.

Then, of course there is Obama.  He withdrew the troops from Iraq and hundreds of thousands of people died.  He is held in high esteem by many.  Then there is Hillary.  She killed four men by doing nothing.  She just stood by and blamed it on a film.  (Now that’s dumb.)  I don’t understand.  Why are they not in prison?  The killer in Florida was a mass killer.  Obama and his friends are wholesale killers.

Then again, their killings might not have been so bad.  Their crime was different.  They didn’t use a gun.  Then to, they are democrats.  They can get away with anything.  Teddy and Jack Kennedy got away with murder, literally.

I Don’t Understand It

I Don’t Get it.

NOW our nation prays.

I’m sure it will do some good,
but it seems to me that the praying should have started years ago.

If earnest prayer started decades ago
maybe seventeen young men and women would still be alive.

Of course, that would have offended a few atheist.

Let’s Get Real.

Let’s face the facts, the ones that our God-less leaders tell us don’t exists.

There are real thieves in this world.

Not all of them wear masks.

Some hide behind respectable business suits.  They use the law.

They steal.

It is in their nature.

They take that which is not theirs.

There are killers in this world.

Not all of them use guns.

Oddly some of them even call themselves doctor.

They murder.

It is in their nature.

They seek wealth, fame and power.

 

There are people in this world who are evil.

The worst of these are some of our leaders.

They do evil.

It is in their nature
and their evil manifests itself in dozens of ways.

 

If we continue to vote for God-less candidates,
why should we expect them to do anything good?

They seek to control.
They want money, power and fame,
even when it destroys others.

 

A little note: in the laws of the fifties, a young man would have been institutionalized and seventeen young men and women would still be alive.

 

On the other hand, with the way things are today, we may as well post signs on our schools, no guns allowed on premises, except for killers.

Home Made Guns

Some have the allusion that it takes a big factory to build guns.  Yet, David Marshall Williams made a semi-automatic rifle while incarcerated in prison.  He built it in the prison machine shop.

Basically, it was the one used by hundreds of thousands of soldiers during WWII.  In some some ways, it was a better gun for war than those that were designed and built in the big factories.

I have no doubt that a good blacksmith with the proper tools can build rifles or sidearms with nothing more than a little of the right raw materials and a few good tools.

Some might want to consider that when they say we should make guns illegal.  At least the ones we have now have serial numbers and can be traced to some degree.  If people start making them in basements, we won’t know where they come from, or, for that matter, what country they come from.
