WideShut, a British blog, enlightened me to what folks are thinking about in Merry-Ol’-England…
Specifically, Should 16 Year Olds Get The Vote?
Apparently, in the former Great Britain, one is allowed to drive, have consensual sex, join the army and get married. All at 16. Hopefully, not all in the same week. (Nothing was said about signing contracts.)
Much like the old tale, I remember being 16 and thinking my parents were idiots. At 22, I couldn’t believe how much they had learned in 6 years! And the older I get (61 is looming!) the older I think people should be to be able to marry, sign contracts, drive, have consensual sex, and yes, VOTE.
I fear, like so many of the ‘wonderful’ ideas
exported infected into the East Coast of the United States from England – ‘free’ health care, anglo-centric Islamofascism, gun control – that this, too will take hold and arrive on these shores. Complete with a host of other ‘new’ concepts which will be patently un-American, politically-correct and irresponsible to be foisted upon our republican Society.
As I’m fond of saying, “Didn’t we fight a war to get away from these @$$#0les?”
Murphy’s Law shares with us the following:
In 1993, firearms collector Kristopher Gaisor bought what he considered to be a must-have rifle for his collection–a Polish wz.38M Maroszek rifle. This rare semi-automatic rifle was one of only 150 made, and maybe 5-8 of them are known to exist today.
Gaisor was pretty proud of this rifle as a link to his family’s Polish WW2 heritage, but recently, when he decided to offer it for sale while liquidating most of his collection, Homeland Security agents knocked on his door and demanded the rifle, threatening him with arrest if he did not surrender it. Apparently the Polish government saw his ad and decided to lay claim to the rifle which was apparently brought back to the U.S. by a returning GI at the end of World War Two.
And in Connecticut:
they take your guns away. Forever.
Public Act No. 13-3 requires all people that voluntarily admit to a hospital for mental health reasons (not solely for drug or alcohol treatment) have their names placed in a database administered by the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services – for the purpose of automatic suspension of Second Amendment rights. This database will link with a database held by the state police that includes all gun permit holders, registered gun owners and anyone who has applied for a gun permit. If there is a “match” between the two databases a letter will go out informing the individual that their Second Amendment rights have been suspended (letter below).
Although you will not receive a letter from the state police, if you are not a “match” you will be notified of your name being put in the database and of the suspension of Second Amendment rights sometime after voluntary admission. The law does not require notice be given to people prior to admitting themselves into a hospital.
Privacy of medical records? Doesn’t exist in CT.
And don’t even pretend that it’s going to be restricted to screwing gun owners; if they can ignore privacy in this, they can ignore it in ANYTHING. (courtesy of Firehand)
And proposed in Massachusetts…
A Massachusetts politician has put forth a proposal to allow local police to enter homes without a warrant in order to ‘inspect’ whether gun owners are ‘properly storing’ their firearms. (Sipsey Street Irregulars/The Blaze)

Gee, how can I say this politely? – THESE F’NG BASTARDS WILL NEVER F’ING STOP! Depriving American citizens of property without any due process? Enforcing foreign law? Bill of Rights? WHAT Bill of Rights?
We all need to stand up to these abuses, en masse, lest ‘they’ continue to chip away at what rights we have left! Until there are none. My roomie is flying back from out-of-town this afternoon, and just texted me about waiting for her second pat down!
We’ve been putting up with this crap for too long.
To keep everybody safe

After illustrating their enthusiasm for repealing the Bill of Rights, a video shows Americans happily signing a petition to support a “Nazi-style Orwellian police state,” in what easily represents the most shocking footage of its kind to date.
Citing issues with how the government shutdown has impacted the ability of the police to “keep the community safe,” Dice tells San Diegans that there is a need to “increase the Orwellian system.”
“Not a problem,” responds one man as he signs the petition.
“We just want to model it after the Nazi Germany system to keep people safe and secure,” Dice tells another individual.
After signing the petition to “implement the Orwellian police state,” another man responds, “You find the pot of money though,” apparently more concerned about how much a Nazi-style police state would cost than its actual consequences.
“They’re trying to cut the budget by 20 per cent so we just want to make sure that we can model the police state after the Nazi Germany system,” Dice tells another couple who sign the petition, before adding, “Thanks for supporting the police state.”
“We’re going to model it after the Nazi Germany-style police state,” Dice clearly tells another man who signs the petition.
“We need this Orwellian-style system to keep everybody safe,” Dice tells a woman as she is signing the petition, to which she responds, “Yeah.”

Well, I take some of it back.
While OUR President (or rather his toady Secretary of State) signed the U.N. Small Arms Treaty (thankfully, an uphill fight for ratification in the Senate!), the Prime Minister of Canada refuses to sign it!
Three Cheers for Canuckistan!
Granted, they still have abysmal internal gun control laws, and no Bill of Rights, but, at least their executive recognizes the danger of ceding sovereignty to outside authority.
The United Nations? Seriously?
MaddMedic poses this and many other serious questions.
When will enough be enough?
At what point does our so-called government cease to be legitimate? At what point do we declare it to be a criminal entity?
We think we should start making this declaration NOW. We will launch a new campaign for exactly this purpose starting tomorrow.
The hardwired message to Congress will read …
I no longer consider the federal “government” to have any legitimate authority. A long train of abuses and usurpations persuades my conscience that it has become a criminal enterprise. In the future I will submit to it out of fear rather than allegiance.
Please go and read the whole thing, then respond. I’ve written this blog for well over two years now, daily, and made many similar appeals. How much is too much? Is the frog now fully boiled? I am not suggesting insurrection nor revolution. I am not suggesting anything.
I AM asking you go. read and consider the above link. Didn’t the Declaration of Independance enumerate the crimes of the executive with which 56 American Patriots refused to stand? They pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor by affixing their ‘John Hancocks’ to the treasonous paper.
Congress seems uninterested in addressing any of these issues. They’re making too much money on the side and passing legislation making certain they don’t have to use the Obamacare they passed for us. The ‘heroes’ of the Tea Party, like Chris Christie have been defrocked as RINOS (or worse). The border continues to be porous, and the so-called ‘Drug War’ unwinnable. And were being incessantly taxed and spied upon.
Mike McDaniel, of Stately McDaniel Manor, gives us a succinct listing of most (if not all) or the reasonable answers to the question Why Do I Carry A Handgun?
Killing Zombies is not one of them.
Here are the answers I choose to use:
* Evil exists and may confront anyone at any time and any place.
* As an adult, I am solely responsible for my continuing existence.

One answer was not on the list:

Made sense when I read the Warren Report, still does.
The Republic of Indian Stream was a small, unrecognized, constitutional republic in North America, along the section of the US-Canada border that divides the Canadian province of Quebec from the US state of New Hampshire. It existed from July 9, 1832 to 1835. Described as “Indian Stream Territory, so-called” by the United States census-taker in 1830, the area was named for Indian Stream, a small watercourse. It had an organized elected government and constitution, and served about three hundred citizens. (The Free Dictionary)
(Herein is redacted the bulk of the article) but wait, there’s more!
Britain relinquished its claim in January 1836, and American jurisdiction was acknowledged in May 1836. The area was still described as Indian Stream at the time of the 1840 United States Census taken on June 1, 1840; the local population totalled 315. The area was incorporated as Pittsburg in 1840. Pittsburg has 300,000 acres (1,200 km²), of which 282.3 square miles (731 km²) is land area and nine square miles (23 km²) is inland water.
In 1842, the land dispute was definitively resolved by the Webster-Ashburton Treaty, and the land was assigned to New Hampshire. However, the 1845 Lewis Robinson Map of New Hampshire based on the latest authorities, shows the boundary to be north of the town of Clarksville but just south of modern-day Pittsburg.
You really should go and read the whole thing. Wearing a tin-foil tricorn hat, of course!
In 1972, a lone junior reporter met with his deep background, anonymous source in a Washington, D.C. garage under the cover of night. “Deep Throat” told Bob Woodward the full extent of the Watergate conspiracy that Woodward and partner Carl Bernstein had overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to reveal. As depicted in All the President’s Men:
The list is longer than anyone can imagine. It involves the entire U.S. intelligence community. FBI. CIA. Justice. … It leads everywhere. Your lives are in danger. … You are under surveillance.
The two reporters, with the support of their editor, and despite widespread apathy among the American public, doggedly built the case that traced the crimes back to the White House, ultimately resulting in the August 9, 1974 resignation of Richard Nixon.
As these reporters’ investigation led them closer and closer, Richard Nixon may well have demanded that Woodward and Bernstein be gagged—in private. But never dared to issue this proclamation in the public arena. Had he given such a directive, the move to impeach may well have come much sooner.
Yet, in 2013, a former senior NSA official, using his own name, on camera, with two of his associates corroborating his account in full, and with his lawyer present, declares on the record to one of America’s major news outlets, USA Today:
The government unchained itself from the Constitution as a result of 9/11. And in the absolute darkest of secrecy, at the highest levels of the government, approved by the White House, NSA became the executive agent for a surveillance program that turned the United States of America effectively into the equivalent of a foreign nation for dragnet electronic surveillance.
Deep Throat was not the story in 1972, and Edward Snowden is not the story today. The abuse of America’s intelligence agencies is. (The Independent institute)
Would you be shocked to learn that the FBI apparently knew that some organization, perhaps even a law enforcement agency or private security outfit, had contingency plans to assassinate peaceful protesters in a major American city — and did nothing to intervene?
Would you be surprised to learn that this intelligence comes not from a shadowy whistle-blower but from the FBI itself – specifically, from a document obtained from Houston FBI office last December, as part of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by the Washington, DC-based Partnership for Civil Justice Fund?
To repeat: this comes from the FBI itself. The question, then, is: What did the FBI do about it? (Blacklisted News)
The question becomes: This stuff is in the dark, uncleaned, cluttered corners of the Internet. Is it true, or just paranoia?
Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean people aren’t out to get you…
Paranoia or Deep Concern. Your choice.

PS – You may note the absence of a post celebrating the 237th Anniversary of American Independence. This is the 82nd blog post I’ve made regarding the AGENDA against American Constitutional -Supported Freedoms.
I don’t feel we should celebrate – we should mourn.
CALL YOUR SENATORS, NOW! And tell them how you feel.
