Turned Out It Was B00BS WITH Guns!

Boobs and Guns

Protesters in Texas thought that showing up topless to an Open Carry rally to protest the protestors was a good idea.

Carrying signs that said, “Boobs are for Babies” they had no idea how big a favor they were doing for the Open Carry folks.
These protests for open carry are to draw attention to the issue. Who knew that 4 nipples would bring so much attention.

And here I was hoping for gun pr0n!   (Women with Guns is better – some NSFW.  Many not following the Four Rules!)

Educated Further Regarding Dr. Franklin…

franklinTruly a Renaissance Man in the Age of Enlightenment!

Kerodin educated me further on him, to wit:

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — The mayor of Ukraine’s second-largest city was shot in the back and pro-Russia insurgents seized more government buildings Monday as the U.S. hit Russia with more sanctions for allegedly fomenting the unrest in eastern Ukraine.

Impeachment is a recent invention, brought to our Founding Documents by Benjamin Franklin.  Until Mr. Franklin offered the concept, there were only two options for dealing with politicians/tyrants who violated their mandate – tolerate it, or kill them.  My thanks to CA for sharing that history with me a few years ago.

Mr. Kerodin goes on to expound on this with some ideas which may be repellent to some.  Obviously, you may visit the link above and draw your own conclusions.

I hate to mention or quote such a vile figure as Mao, but,

Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.

The right to petition is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the federal constitution…

In the United States the right to petition is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the federal constitution, which specifically prohibits Congress from abridging “the right of the people…to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Although often overlooked in favor of other more famous freedoms, and sometimes taken for granted,[1] many other civil liberties are enforceable against the government only by exercising this basic right.[2] The right to petition is a fundamental in a Constitutional Republic, such as the United States, as a means of protecting public participation in government.[1](Wikipedia)

Way Up North  (and now Tam) brought to our attention (in demure fanfare, as is their tradition) a movement regarding individual States of these United States petitioning for peaceful secession from the same!

I went to the All Petitions/whitehouse.gov website, and was amazed!  First, that such a group of petitions existed and second, that ‘the government’ had allowed such behavior, given their track record on such things!

By my count, there 24 States, including mine, with listed petitions!

Is this treasonous, or simply the right to petition?

‘Be careful out there among them English!’

No Lawyers – Only Guns and Money 
proposes an interesting approach to dealing with the criminal actors of the TSA.
Shun them, as with an ostracized Amish person:

~The word shun comes from the Middle English shunnen and the Old English scunian meaning to abhor. To abhor is quite appropriate.
How does this relate to the Transportation Security Administration, its agents, security officers, and employees? Hardly a week goes by without another story of an elderly person humiliated, an attractive woman felt up, an amputee belittled, a parent made to feel helpless, a child molested, privacy invaded, or some other event evidencing stupidity, malice, and abuse by a TSA security officer all in the name of “security”. ~

How many terrorists have the TSA stopped with these techniques?  None.
I know many of the good folks at the TSA are ‘just doing their job’.
Didn’t we hear that argument at Nuremburg?

The Four Rules

1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.

2. NEVER POINT YOUR MUZZLE AT SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY.

3. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET AND YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.

4. KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT'S BEYOND.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
