Another example of why

We NEED the Second Amendment:

Police in Sweden chose to focus on the people trying to patrol their streets, protecting their homes…., instead of taking action to stop the rioters from continuing their violence and destruction.

A large group of police officers rounded up and dispersed a group of vigilantes trying to fend off rioters.

Police choose NOT to confront the rioters, letting them rampage and destroy neighborhoods. They prevent citizens from defending their homes and property. 

Try that here? Never happen where I live. 

If the police will not maintain order, then the citizens will….at least where they live. 

What do you think the future for our country holds? Remember the Rodney King riots?  
Will you be able to defend your home and neighborhood, if and when? Do you really think that these riots won’t happen here someday soon? (might be muslims, might be the inner city “entitlement class”…might be those who get upset when the welfare stops…..) 

Will you be able to determine thatyour home is defended? Will you be able to tell the police that if they won’t do their job, then you and your neighbors will? Will you be able to enforce that? 

I will. And the police won’t be able to stop me either.

3 day weekend:

When You Go Home
Tell Them Of Us
And Say
“For Your Tomorrow,
We Gave Our Today”

Memorial Day
(image via Wikipedia)

Memorial day. A day to remember the fallen….Those who fell in the defense of our country, our Constitution, and our freedom.

Set on the last Monday in May, for many (most) people, this is a weekend with an extra day off, with maybe an auto race thrown in. It should be more. It should be a sacred day, a solemn day….A day of thanks.

For many, it is a day to do work in the yard, work on the house, and then grill out, maybe with friends. Hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill….maybe baked beans and potato salad and chips. A few beers and some conversation with the neighbors or guests….

But take a moment, remember the reason for the day. If you have family members who gave the ultimate sacrifice, take a moment to remember them. If their grave is nearby, you might take a few minutes and tidy that gravesite up just a bit…maybe a flag placed there. If you don’t, or if you have the time, maybe find a grave that is no longer taken care of and spend a few minutes.

But remember the reason. Remember those who fell in the service of your country:

Remember the Soldier who died in the civil war, a lead ball puncturing him and the slow death on a battlefield….

Remember the Doughboy in WWI who died at the bottom a a muddy trench, cold and wet, a german bullet in his chest.

Think of the man who fell assaulting a sandy beach in WWII, his blood staining the black volcanic sands. Or the man who died after parachuting into France for Operation Overloard, or who died on Gold beach…..Or the boys who perished when their shot up bomber couldn’t struggle to stay in the air anymore over the English Channel and fell into the sea despite everything they did to fly home….

The men who froze to death at the Chosin Reservoir in Korea.

The boys who died in a jungle for a war they didn’t understand in Vietnam….

The soldier who bled to death when his leg was blown off by an IED in Fallujah.

The Seal who died in the mountains of Afghanistan saving his buddies.

And really, you should remember the man or woman who died because they could not adjust to life anymore due to PTSD. Even if they died after the end of their enlistment.  They too gave all….

Remember them. They died serving their country….and serving you. They defended your way of life. Defended the country which gave you what you have today. Freedom.

If you forget them, you do them a disservice. you devalue their sacrifice…You devalue the gifts that they gave you.

You devalue yourself.

If all this weekend is to you is a three day weekend, and extra day off, then you are not deserving of the gifts they sacrificed to give you.


Enjoy what they gave you.

I will.


I wasn’t there, and I don’t have all the videos….So this may not be fair.

But apparently, while the 2 black Muslims were killing the British Soldier, lots of people were “filming” their actions.

I realize that the men were armed with knives and/or cleavers/axes.

No one could find something to hit them with? I understand that law abiding Brits are unable to possess or carry firearms, but surely people could have found a way to distract these men. Surely the men passing by could find a tree limb, or a chair, or a large tone to ….discourage these animals?

Or am I missing something?

ETA: Apparently some folks “remonstrated” with the attackers AFTER the fact. Maybe there are some guts left in the British city dwellers after all.

Shades of Jack Ruby….

So, somehow, the friend of one of the brothers Kablamov Tsarnev brothers (the Boston Marathon Bombers) was involved in an investigation for murder…

And somehow, while being investigated (and, according to some reports, just before he signed a confession to a murder) he shot at an FBI agent…. and subsequently assumed ambient temperature.


Odd though. Lots of questions loom.

I am sure that the conspiracy theorists will make something of it. I know that I find it….convenient.
