They never learn

Went to a "green belt" Six Sigma course yesterday for my employer. The class was held at the Northern Illinois University campus in Rockford.

Prominent signs posted on the drive in to the parking lot - placed out-of-sight of the actual entrance, so you have to drive in and pass it before you can leave the premises (which probably qualifies as a crime in Ill-Annoys if you are a CCW holder - entering "posted" property) state "NO WEAPONS ALLOWED" with a nice Euro-style red circle-slash through an automatic pistol.

NIU, you might remember, was the site of a "school shooting" back in February, 2008, while my daughter was attending. She was nowhere near the actual scene, thank God. The shooting was in part enabled by the law then that prohibited honest citizens in the state of Ill-Annoys, let alone on campus, from having protective devices at hand.

The course instructor marveled at the proliferation of these signs - on public parks, and everywhere hoplophobes and soft-brained liberals rule.

Now, this:

KARMA: Business posts new “NO GUNS” sign; robbed within days, employees beaten

So, the owner of a new barbeque place in North Carolina, Greg Hatem, posts his establishment “NO GUNS” with a custom-made sign designed to make gun owners feel extra unwelcome.
Apparently Greg hates ‘em when it comes to guns.
A few days later, some thugs figure it’s a good spot for a hold up and not only commit an armed robbery, but they beat the employees as well.  Be sure to mosey on over and check out the surveillance video of the attack.  The media described the vicious attack by three armed black men in hoodies who terrorized the staff.  One staff member was taken to the hospital.
The anti-gun owner, Greg Hatem, is offering a $2000 reward for the arrest and conviction of those responsible.
Hey Greg?  Free advice.  Take the sign down and you’ll better “take care” of your employees and customers.
I hope those employees all sue for violation of their Constitutional rights - and win big. They might end up owning the place.

Side note - one of the other students, sadly an Ill-Annoys resident, told me that Ill-Annoys CCW licenses are going for upwards of $600 when you factor in the mandatory 16 hours of  classroom training, the firms that offer "first try" CCW application success, and the cost of the license itself. I sure am glad to see that the Demonrats in Chicago have managed to effectively eliminate all those inner-city people from ever being able to defend themselves from Chicago's endemic violence via over-pricing an inalienable human right. Perhaps those people will think of this the next time they are bussed to the polls.

Nah- I'm dreaming...

I've been watching. My wife enjoys the series - she says she's learning things.

Last night, Neil deGrasse Tyson was talking about immortality. The episode went along nicely with discussion of life traveling between planets and stars.

Near the end, he was talking about how we need to change in order to cure climate change. His script sounded like a Jugears speech about how people will talk about the day the waters stopped rising.

The thing that caught my attention most was when he stated that the consensus is that humans are warming the planet. Earlier, he had stated that the Earth's climate has been both much hotter and much colder than present day, and that volcanoes and other natural events had done the changing. He even stated something about 600 cubic miles or similar number of dust being thrown up by a volcano in Asia, causing cooling and darkening for five years. Yet, Man's feeble CO2 pollution is the proximate cause of "climate change"

Science does not work by "consensus". Either a theory is proven or discarded. Anthropogenic global warming has been pretty solidly debunked over the last few years. That's why the liberals changed the argument to "climate change" - it's easy to scare uninformed people with vague threats when easily disproven threats have failed.

No thinking person disputes "climate change". The real questions are: is there anything we can do to change what is happening, and should we even try?

The unstated fact is that China and India are producing megatons of "carbon pollution" and are increasing their outputs daily, and absolutely nothing Western civilization does to itself can remedy that. All our "climate change" laws and regulations can do is destroy our country and our people.

And make people like Algore, Soros, and Jugears very rich...

Go read - well worth the time

The best discussion of how to handle threats I have ever read.

Ann Barnhardt

So… I almost got in a fistfight today (plus a repost of “Hard Truths About Combat Tactics” with an instructive cat video)

So crazy panhandler dude, seeing that I’m on my own, decides to get bold.  I drew him back away from the tabernacle, still trying to enjoin the “men” to get involved.  Then, crazy panhandler dude charged me.  And here is where the mental preparation pays off.  He was about 15 feet away, and when he charged I thought three things in this order:
1.  Trust in God and fear no man.
2.  Move straight forward into the attack.
3.  Meekness is power under control.
So, when he charged, I lifted my chin maintaining drilling eye contact, threw back my shoulders, dropped my daypack that was in my left hand in an “I’m getting ready to beat your ass in the two-fisted manner of the old school” sort of way, and stepped forward to meet him.
And you know what he did?  Aw, guess.  Go ahead.
Yup.  Player stopped short and backed up.
 The cat in question is the "hero cat" that defended her young boy. The video is pretty graphic - that cat risked death to stop an attack.

Can any of us call ourselves men if we can't at least be as brave as a cat?


We are DOOMED.

Only if we don't fight. The Demonrats will keep right on lying and scheming - we can never let our guard drop.

My fear is that the Stupid Party will not offer truly good candidates and many people will just not vote, giving the Demonrats the victory by default.

I believed right up until the night in November, 2008 when McCain conceded that Jugears would never be elected. The GOP ensured his election since so many "conservative" voters couldn't stomach the RINO they picked for their candidate. Ditto in 2012 - picking the originator of the JugearsCare scam as their candidate almost ensured I would refrain from voting, or waste my vote on a third party.

These rats are devious and have some big money behind them. Beat on your local GOP people to get real Constitutional candidates on the ballot in 2014 and 2016.

If we don't, we can all learn to love Big Brother as we wait patiently in line for our soma ration.

Recent news articles have been screaming about the new rise in "segregation" occurring in our public schools.

Segregation is defined as "the enforced separation of different racial groups in a country, community, or establishment". At least it used to be defined that way.

When used under the original definition, it meant something akin to "apartheid". Blacks were not allowed in the front seats of buses, could not eat in white restaurants, had "separate but equal" schools, had special "colored" water fountains. All enforced by state and local laws. People of mixed race were seen as aberrations, and marrying someone of another race was illegal in some states. These laws were strictly enforced.

Up until the 1960's - when some brave people finally stood up and refused to be treated as second-class citizens. Civil-rights legislation ensured equality in education and voting. Other race-based laws were struck down or repealed.

Then came LBJ's "war on poverty". Among other things, that started the modern welfare state. Lyndon himself was quoted as saying "I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years."

The imposition of welfare altered the playing field. Blacks once had strong families and social structures. Welfare encouraged the worst human traits in it's subjects. Families were destroyed, idleness rewarded with "free" food and housing, morals destroyed by the loss of the atomic family and the work ethic. Too many blacks succumbed to the temptation to sit around and have more babies in order to increase their government checks.

Fifty years later, these people, impoverished spiritually and morally, naturally congregate in the inner cities, unable to earn enough money to move away, incapable of employment in many cases due to the ghetto disdain of education and "acting white".

Gee. Looking at the whole subject from a fresh perspective, I see that "segregation" was cunningly moved from state and local law to the federal level, by the changing of definitions and the inevitable workings of the "war on poverty". Did LBJ and his minions see the final result of their policy?

I think it was premeditated. From the same links above:
“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”—LBJ

America is more segregated in some areas now after 50 years of affirmative action and enforced desegregation than in the 1930s.

No new federal laws will ever fix this. The solution will be extremely painful - cut off the welfare and force people to survive on their own intelligence and will.

There will be blood. Any way we try to fix the mess will result in violence and death.

There's a real good reason I call them "Demonrats".

I hope she gets her wish

Sandra Fluke: ‘‘I’d rather be a captive Nigerian girl than touched by a Republican’’

  “I must say that as dire and barbaric as these Boko militants in Nigeria seem, we have to remember that if these girls are released and come to America as political refugees, they could end up working for Republican lawmakers here in California or in Washington, or end up living in a Red state in the South, which would no doubt make them wish they were still in the clutches of militant al-Qaeda-linked rapist terrorists,” Fluke told Brand.  
I can only hope that if this prime example of Demonrat logic and wisdom gets elected, she gets a junket to one of those Islamic paradises that are so much better than flyover America, and are populated with people who are at least not CHRISTIAN.

And she forgets to wear a bag over her head...

Operation Choke Point

Wherein the IRS blackmails banks to shut down the accounts of businesses that the IRS finds to be non-PC:

Timeline: Operation Choke Point

The investigation that Justice Department officials have dubbed "Operation Choke Point" was first disclosed in March 2013. The probe aims to prevent fraudsters from accessing consumer bank accounts by choking off their access to the payments system. Its effects have been felt by banks, payment processors and companies that make short-term consumer loans over the Internet, with some industry officials arguing that at least some of the affected online lenders are legitimate businesses. Here is a look at key milestones of the investigation.
"Operation Choke Point " was conceived as a way to shut down "businesses" that are actually scams and criminal enterprises. Of course, to a Demonrat / Liberal, businesses like gun dealers, book sellers that offer "heretical" subjects, and businesses that cater to patriots are non-PC, and should be stifled by whatever means necessary...

Never propose a bill or law that you would not be comfortable with your worst enemy enforcing it...

About time

Wisconsin City Police Refuse to Enforce Public Park Gun Ban

Video at the link.
…Chief Beguhn reviewed the local ordinance after Karenz’s complaint and found that the ordinance is no longer valid.
According to, the chief said the ordinance is invalid because of Wisconsin’s “preemption laws on firearms.” He has ordered signs banning guns to be taken down and pledged that he will not enforce the ban even while the signs are up.
Wisconsin Carry receives credit for bringing the Wisconsin “preemption” to everyone’s attention, and Chief Beguhn has followed up by choosing not to enforce an outdated ordinance.
People these days are brainwashed into being scared to death the moment they see some guy with a gun on his hip. I’m glad that this small city has a police chief that refuses to be ruled by people’s irrational emotions and fears over guns.
The woman quoted does not think guns should be around children - I guess she would object to the police being anywhere near her kids?

It's refreshing to see some of our sworn peace officers refuse to enforce a blatantly illegal law!

United States Constitution:
Amendment I.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

This has been held to apply to state and local governments, such as school boards.

Teacher tells student he can't read the Bible in classroom

A Florida school teacher humiliated a 12-year-old boy in front of an entire class after she caught him reading the Bible during free reading time.
The teacher, at Park Lakes Elementary School in Fort Lauderdale, ordered Giovanni Rubeo to pick up the telephone on her desk and call his parents. 
As the other students watched, the teacher left a terse message on the family’s answering machine.
“I noticed that he has a book – a religious book – in the classroom,” she said on the recording. “He’s not permitted to read those books in my classroom.”
The Liberty Institute, a legal firm that specializes in religious liberty issues, is now representing the Rubeo family. They are demanding that Giovanni be allowed to read his Bible during free reading time. They also want the school to issue a written apology to the boy.
This teacher needs to be ridden out of town on a rail, after being tarred and feathered. The school board ought to be ushered out the same way if they don't help organize the tarring and feathering, and buy the rails out of their own pockets...

We're from the government. We're here to help.

Back in the 1930's, it seemed like a good idea. Lie to a bunch of syphilitic black men so they would participate in a human experiment for the betterment of humanity.

Damn white people doctors!

Uh - not so fast:

Another example of a horrible thing government has done for the ‘common good’

Did US officials really inject men with Syphilis and leave them to die? Did they do this because they hated black people?
If you don’t know what the Tuskegee Experiment was, let me give you a refresher course.
It was 1932 and the Public Health Service along with the Tuskegee Institute started a study to record the effects of Syphilis in black men.
According to the Center for Disease Control, “The study initially involved 600 black men – 399 with syphilis, 201 who did not have the disease.”
Wait, let’s look more closely at that sentence.
It says 399 men WITH Syphilis.
In other words, these men were not injected with Syphilis. They were volunteers who already had late stages of the disease.
Let me say that again, The United States did not inject men with Syphilis during the Tuskegee Study.
What was horrific about the Tuskegee Study was that the men who volunteered as subjects we’re fooled into thinking they were being treated for Syphilis—they were not.
The study was originally projected to last 6 months—but went on to last 40 years. And for those 40 years, even after the discovery of penicillin, the volunteers were not given any treatment for syphilis. They were for the most part treated as objects to be studied under a microscope by a doctor named Dr. Eugene Dibble.
You see Dr. Dibble was head of the John Andrew Hospital at the Tuskegee Institute.  Here’s what he wrote about the study:
It “….would offer very valuable training for our students as well as for the interns. Our own hospital and the Tuskegee Institute would get credit for this piece of research work. He (Dr. Clark) also predicts that the results of this study will be sought after the world over. Personally, I think we ought to do it.”
What an evil white bastard. This white bastard. What a racist whitey. Except that he wasn’t white at all.
Despite the lighting of the photo, Dr. Eugene Dibble was actually African American. But, you could argue that he was just the head of the hospital.  He wasn’t dealing with this every day.
 Too many people eager to see "racism" everywhere, all the time. We forget that people of all races can be evil, or do evil believing they are doing good. All it takes is for a person to forget that all human beings have worth, and should be respected until they personally show themselves unworthy of respect.

More examples of our benevolent government at work here. Including our own Jugears' EPA...
  • From 2004 through the Obama administration, subjects at the University of North Carolina’s School of Medicine were exposed to very high levels of toxic air pollutants while participating in an experiment by the EPA. The EPA failed to warn their test subjects about just how lethal the doses were.

Cautionary tale

The lefty-liberal hoplophobes just LOVE the idea of "smart guns". They will solve ALL the world's problems stemming from the easy availability of handguns in our cities...

“Smart” Guns: A Story of A Girl 

Cara’s mother kept her firearms in a safe with an electronic lock. Cara had discovered the code for the lock while rummaging through her mother’s sock drawer weeks ago.
The 9mm pistol inside the safe was a “smart gun.” It only worked if the user’s thumb-print matched a list of authorized users. Luckily, her mother had made her an authorized user when they were at the range last summer. Cara picked up the gun, checked to verify that a round was chambered and that the magazine was loaded before putting it in a holster that she slipped into the front of her pants. She loaded the two spare magazines for the pistol—in her state, you could only have seven rounds in each magazine—and dumped them in her book bag. Her mother’s other handgun, a .40-caliber pistol, had an RFID-activated chip in it just like the local police used, and required the use of a watch with an embedded code. It also required that a four-digit code be punched in immediately before use. Fortunately for Cara, her mother had written down that code on the same piece of paper that held the code for the lock. Cara carefully printed the four-digit code on her right wrist, put on the watch, and covered both with her jacket sleeve before slipping the gun into her jacket pocket. Five spare magazines went into her other jacket pocket. She looked at the clock on the wall. It was time for school.
Good read.

If smart guns ever make the mainstream - or worse, if they are mandated, as in several Demonrat/Liberal infested states already, this WILL happen. Guaranteed.

Mr. Owens is more hopeful than I am - but:
The scenario above is fictional, and hopefully it will always remain so.
It was written to point out two truths.
ONE: Given time, technology—no matter how clever—can be defeated, and is often defeated by the simplest of means.
TWO: Technologically complex items always seems fails when it is needed most. This is why professionals opt for the most simple and reliable weapon systems available. This is why the military and police forces utterly refuse to consider “smart” guns. They need to be able to pick up any firearm, and make it fire, 100% of the time. So does anyone else that chooses a gun for self-defense.
Computerizing firearms creates a high level of technological complexity. Systems that require complexity introduce unnecessary failure points, and in the case of smart guns, may cost lives… many lives.
Smart guns are simply not wanted by knowledgeable shooters, and the desire for them seems to come only from those who are afraid of all firearms, and who desire control over others. You can rest assured that like every modern technology, “smart” guns will be built with a government “backdoor” enabling these arms to be deactivated by authorities.
One might even reasonably suspect that being able to disarm everyone with the push of a button is precisely the goal of those who champion such technology.
 Suspect? I, for one, am dead certain of their goal.

Guns are bad - they only kill people

Or so the mindless "liberal" will chant, endlessly.

And the MSM won't report things like this:

Marine With Concealed Carry Permit Saves Woman From Being Beaten To Death

A Wisconsin man who saved a woman from being beaten to death Tuesday morning credits his state’s concealed carry law for giving him the ability to act.
Charlie Blackmore Jr., a 32-year-old Marine Corps veteran, was driving home from work at 4:00am Tuesday when he saw a man violently kicking a large object on the ground. He parked his car to see what was going on and upon drawing closer to the scene, Blackmore realized that the “object” was a young woman.
When the man refused to stop beating his visibly injured victim, Blackmore pulled out his Springfield XDM 9mm.
“I said ‘stop’ and he starts coming towards me and that`s when I drew on him. He started getting closer and I said ‘get down on the ground,’” he told Fox Milwaukee. Blackmore kept his gun on the other man as he phoned West Allis police and reported the incident. The attacker made several attempts to move toward the Iraq veteran as they waited for authorities to arrive.
“I mean I’ve already made it up in mind that if he came at me I was going to have to take him down and I told him that. I warned him multiple times not to come towards me because he was a big guy and I wasn’t playing around and he didn’t seem like he was playing around,” Blackmore said.
Police quickly arrived on the scene and arrested the man. Officers checked Blackmore’s concealed carry permit, took his statement and thanked him, as did the badly beaten woman he rescued. The victim’s left eye was swollen shut and her nose appeared to be broken as a result of her injuries, allegedly inflicted by an ex-boyfriend.

Concealed carry “hero” saves woman being mauled by a dog in Cincinnati

A dog attack ended in Cincinnati yesterday after a passerby drew a concealed weapon, killed the dog mauling a woman, and then simply walked away:
The attack happened in the 2100 block of Selim Avenue in East Price Hill about noon on Friday.
Cincinnati police officers said the victim was attacked by the dog after it broke free from its chain in a backyard.
A mail carrier tried to get the dog off as it began biting the victim, officers said.
According to investigators, as the mail carrier was struggling to get the dog off the woman, another man, who was walking down the street at the time, pulled out a gun and shot and killed the dog.
The dog was killed and the shooter continued walking down the street, police said.
The police say that the man did the right thing and does not face charges. Neighbors say they did not recognize the unknown concealed carrier, but called him a “hero.”

Two Suspects Who Dragged Mom Across a Parking Lot Get a Swift Lesson in Texas’ Concealed Carry Law

A 30-year-old mother is lucky today after the quick-thinking of a stranger helped save her from a mugging.
The mother of two who was dragged across a Texas shopping center parking lot this week, clinging to her purse while two suspects in a sedan tried to snatch it.
That’s when the stranger, who was armed, stopped the would-be thieves and forced them to lie on the ground while they waited for the police to arrive.
The MSM sure is quick to blame the gun - and most "liberal" politicians and police chiefs can't wait to dance in the blood...

Gerry McCarthy, Chicago police  superintendent, pounced on the shooting of a 14-year-old girl this week by another 14-year-old girl, telling the MSM that the gun was "stolen from a car where the concealed carry owner had left it", as if the CCW holder and the gun were solely responsible for the shooting.

The truth will out, though. From Second City Cop:
Before the 14-year-old girl allegedly fired the shot that killed Endia Martin, the .38 caliber revolver had touched many hands.

A south suburban gun shop known for selling weapons later used in crimes in Chicago. A Hyde Park man whose mother did not want the gun in their home. A former Atlanta man now living on the South Side who would appear to be a middleman of sorts in the gun’s journey. The paralyzed uncle of the 14-year-old girl who, prosecutors charged, rode the bus to give the gun to his niece before the fatal confrontation. Someone at the 14-year-old’s side at the confrontation who was savvy enough to quickly fix a malfunctioning gun.
Lies are perfectly OK in the tiny minds of these creeps, as long as they further their quest to render us all defenseless and enslaved by their socialist utopia.

Open letter from the Bundy family

A friend sent this in:

Bundy Ranch

Read by Ammon Bundy at the Clark County Sheriff Precinct, May 2, 2014
As we have had the opportunity to reflect on the events that took place between March 26th and April 12th, 2014-we have experienced feelings of concern, confusion, fear, anger, sadness and joy.

Our peaceful community has been shaken. In many ways, we are still processing the magnitude of what took place. We ask ourselves so many questions; did the federal government really come into this valley and terrorize our community?

Did hundreds of armed forces, in Red Dawn fashion, lock down the hills and valleys of our peaceful home-threatening at gunpoint, anyone who stepped off the paved road, with forceful and lethal action?

Did we really see armed forces convoying through the streets of our town, diligently recording names and identities of anyone who glanced wrong or opposed them in any way?

Was there really heavy equipment in the form of dump trucks and backhoes, on our mountains, tearing up infrastructure that we have used for hundreds of years, and is vital to our survival? Were we truly in the cross-hairs of snipers, and under surveillance by the latest in technological weapons?

Did these forces actually point their rifles in the faces of our little children, while beating their unarmed fathers to the dirt and hauling them off in chains?

Did they really body-slam our friend, a 59 year old woman to the ground, and sic German Shepherds on our neighbors-even a pregnant woman?

Did they actually shock a man multiple times with a 50,000 volt Taser for honorably protecting his aunt, while she gathered herself out of the dust?

We reflect in sadness and awe that this could take place in our little town. The terror of armed men occupying our land will never be forgotten. The feelings of despair of these events will long reside in our hearts. Thoughts of anxiousness that this may ever happen again, will awaken us from our pillows from time to time.

During quiet reflection, we may ask ourselves if we did the right thing by resisting. Were we in the right when we acted to safeguard ourselves? When the only response to our multiple pleas for help was silence, when we were left alone to clean our cuts and wounds, did we have a divine right, duty, and obligation to protect our family and ourselves?

We recall the many times we pleaded with our local government to protect us; the numerous times we called 911, and begged our Sheriff to send his deputies to assist. Our cries of distress were met with silence. We ask ourselves, "Did we try hard enough to get our local government and law enforcement to act as a buffer and perform their duty to protect and serve?"

Were the hundreds of phone calls not enough, or is it just that our elected leaders and Sheriff have forsaken the people in trade for power and money? We whole-heartedly want to believe that our Sheriff would not abandon us, but where has his shielding influence been?

Why was he not here to represent and protect the very men, women and children of his county that he swore an oath for? Why did he stand silent and neutral, knowing our community was in terror? What was his motivation of inaction; was it fear of the federal government or political reprisal from powerful politicians?

The scars of this traumatic event will heal over time. We hope our community will eventually return to a sense of normalcy. We fervently hope and pray that these heavy-handed tactics will not be used on us or any other American ever again. We wonder if our hopes will be in vain; will they return?

Will they come back with greater force and more cunning tactics than before? Will our Sheriff keep his oath this time, and use his lawful forces to stop them, or will the people be left to their own protection? Will the good people of this nation yet again have to come running to the rescue of a neighbor?

Will veterans, retired police force, churches, businesses, families and individuals have to unite once again to confront these acts of governmental terror upon the American people?

Will our local government rouse themselves from disaffection and intervene-protecting the people? Will they stop fearing to do the right thing and come to the realization that the people are more important than a government agency? Will they fight for the rights of the state and her people?

They must stop putting personal gain and advancement in front of the rights of citizens.

They need to recognize, that as our elected representatives, they have more power than those governing in brute force, as they have the might of the people of this state backing them. With that power we invest in them, they have the obligation to safeguard our livelihoods, combat forces of fear, and protect our lives with their own.

A few weeks ago, our community was in a state of innocence and naivety. We felt safe and mostly kept to ourselves. We thought the world's problems would only affect us through television, and could be shut off with the push of a button.

Our innocence has left us now, we have experienced first-hand the breath of force upon our necks. We have gasped in desperation as our lives and agency were threatened. Our cries have been ignored by our guardians in the next room.

We faced a choice-either lie down and submit helplessly in defeat, or bite, scratch, and fight until help would come. We are eternally and profoundly grateful for the many heroic neighbors who heard our desperate cries and crashed through the windows to rescue.

We additionally thank the thousands that came from every States in this great nation, and stood in front of raised guns in our defense, and for the hope that those same guns would never come to their doors and their families.

We are grateful for those that arrived with pen and camera, those that arrived with faith and prayers, and those that arrived with fist and gun. The variety of support from all walks of life has shown that this was an event that truly touched the good hearts of many Americans.

We cannot thank you all enough-you have restored our faith in the goodness of the American people. Our message to all, is that it is time to make things right. It is time to adhere to the supreme law of the land-The Constitution of the United States.

It is time to understand right, stand for what's right, and do whatever it takes to make it right. We must continue the vision of our Founding Fathers in preserving the freedoms of the American people and the sovereign rights of the States.

A nation can never abandon its fate to an authority it cannot control.

Men must decide if their rights and freedoms are God-granted or are assigned by a federal government. We believe in the rule of laws and sustain a limited government. May God bless us to protect this sacred instrument.

Thank you,
The Bundy Family

Victims of Communism Day

Victims of Communism Day

Go read. 
May First is celebrated by Communists like July 4th is celebrated by Americans. Instead, we should remember the millions murdered by Communist governments in the last century.

It is a chilling thing to have the first May Day parade of traditional saber-rattling  in Moscow since 1991...

Ill-Annoys idiocy

The Demonrats in the People's Republk are at it again. Illinois hasn't got enough problems with a Demonrat controlled legislature ignoring 90% of the land area of the state and doing what Chicago and Crook County decree. No. This group wants to destroy even more minimum wage jobs:

Raise Illinois wants to raise the minimum wage, which is right now north of $8.50 an hour. They just can not grasp the iron-bound fact that if you do this, businesses have to raise their prices to absorb the cost - or lay off workers. The ultimate costs are always placed squarely on the shoulders of the poorest in our society.
