Color Blind

rachel-dolezal-splitThis whole brew-ha-ha over a White woman ‘passing’ as a Black woman in the Spokane chapter of the NAACP has me confused.

Or perhaps the emotion is WHO CARES?

The NAACP accepts members of all races.  At least they used to, before they were compromised by the progressives.  I don’t know the current qualifications.  (see Democratic Party also re:  compromise)

This is one reason I support CORE and not the NAACP.  (That and CORE actively supports self-defense and firearms ownership for all, whereas the NAACP does not.)

I think this whole non-issue of a White woman ‘passing’ as Black can be dealt with with two questions:

1)  Is her weirdness in acting this way detrimental to the organization?, AND,

2)  What is the content of her character?

Of course, this doesn’t affect me.

And I still don’t care.

Better Living Through Chemistry

Whenever gun crimes are perpetrated, liberals love to point the finger of blame at law-abiding gun owners, but a list of mass shooters from the past 20 years proves that they all had one thing in common – and it wasn’t the weapons used. Evidence shows that the common factor in nearly every mass shooting is that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been taking them at one point before committing their crimes.

Multiple credible scientific studies going back more then a decade, as well as internal documents from certain pharmaceutical companies that suppressed the information show that SSRI drugs ( Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors ) have well known, but unreported side effects, including but not limited to suicide and other violent behavior.

One need only Google relevant key words or phrases to see for themselves.

www.ssristories.com is one popular site that has documented over 4500 “ Mainstream Media “ reported cases from around the World of aberrant or violent behavior by those taking these powerful drugs, according to the Liberty Crier.

The extensive list shows how psychotropic drugs are linked in every case of murder and suicide:

Now, I’m truly not disparaging chemistry.  And many of the modern wonderful chemical miracles that are pervasive in our daily life. \ Imagine life without aspirin, ibuprofen, penicillin, other antibiotics.  My roommate certainly would have passed by now, if it were not for asthma medications.  And certainly these medications have helped thousands, if not millions of people.
But the pharmacological industry has somehow been able to develop these psychotropic medications and release them to the public, without them having been completely vetted or tested.
Or perhaps the ‘off the rails’ factor is calculated in, as with automobile safety equipment, food additives and other stuff?
And people are being killed.

The Supreme Court Stands…

for nothing, apparently.

The supreme court refused to hearJackson v. City and County of San Francisco. After Heller and McDonald, they don’t seem very willing to take on many more gun rights cases. It’s curious to me why that is. Pre-Heller, it was speculated that the court wouldn’t take gun cases because they weren’t convinced the decision would go the right way. But Sandy resigned. I wonder who the hold out is now?

Too bad the Founding Fathers didn’t see that oath taking would be viewed largely as ceremonial fal-de-ral with no meaning as the nation progressed…

In ALL federal offices requiring it!

Perhaps I should have spelled it fed-er-al…

Geraldo Rivera

Liberal journalist or asshat?

From Firehand

Let’s start with Geraldo Rivera is an asshat

You probably already knew that, but he provides further proof.
Geraldo mocked Vaughn’s contention that the Founding Fathers hedged in the right to bear arms so we could resist tyranny not only outside our borders, but also within.
Yeah, all those things the founders of this country, and the citizens, said: they mean nothing.  Right.
Geraldo later denied that guns are used by law-abiding citizens to stop crimes. He asked fellow host Eric Bolling, “When was the last time you heard of a civilian stopping a crime with a gun?” And when Bolling said, “It happens thousands of times per day,” Geraldo responded by saying, “That’s a legend. You’re watching too much True Detective.”
A friggin’ idiot to whom facts mean nothing when they conflict with what he wants to be true.

I go back and forth with regard to Mr. Rivera.  There’s the story he graduated law school as Jerry Rivers, then decided to access his Latino heritage to find work.  His landmark broadcast of the Zapruder film on national television was indeed!

And the less-than-landmark opening of Al Capone’s vault…

But the above is simply not even journalism or debate.

Florida Man Caught On Video Dancing Atop Deputy’s Cruiser

Man claimed he was threatened by vampires, authorities say

 

In the opinion of blog contributor/reader Tomi…

I would like to point out, that he was apparently successful in scaring away any vampires in the area.  But did he get any thanks?  No!
It’s a shame that such a public-minded citizen would be arrested for his efforts!!
(Methinks he was probably “attacked” by several “Vampires” a bit before the incident.  You know, the kind made of tequila, tomato & citrus juices…)
I’ve never had such a concoction.  It does sound lethal.  Or otherworldly…

Remember When ‘Bobbies’ Were Famous For Being Unarmed?

Well, not so much, anymore…

bobbie

While on my trip in the UK, I noticed a staggering amount of armed police officers guarding the gates to castles and palaces. These were not security guards but actual police officers. All were armed with Glocks and a couple of them were armed with either a MP5 or MP7, and this was at every place I went to.

This is at Windsor Castle. This gate is the exit for tourists. However it is a controlled entrance for certain vehicles. It is guarded by a couple of officers, one of which is armed with a MP5A4 with Surefire fore end.

(The Firearms Blog)

Funny how the British population was largely disarmed in 1997, crime has risen, and the constabulary is now carrying a multitude of semi-and fill auto firearms.

Sir Robert Peale must be spinning in his grave.

Cuba Removed From The List of Regimes Who Are Known To Sponsor Terrorism

CUBA.  That bastion of Freedom in the Western Hemisphere, has been removed from the ‘official’ list of those nations known to sponsor terrorism.

And travel restrictions have been lessened.

I wonder what has changed?

And I wonder about all those folks who suffered torture and death under the Fidel/Raul Castro regime?  Who are still imprisoned.

And their families, both in Cuba and in The United States.

Of course, we still do mega-business with The People’s Republic of China, and Vietnam.

Perhaps we are just playing catch-up?

Cui bono?

MASTER Security

The View From North Central Idaho brings us…

Now, I was raised on the idea that Master Locks were the be all and end all for combo locks (at least in the medium price range).  Hell, it was what we were issued in junior high and high school for our lockers! (back before they stopped using lockers and everyone carried backpacks.)

But, as I already brought you how to escape handcuffs and zip ties, it only seemed right to pass this along…

As It Should Be

Stopped for open carry

And winning in court: The court finds that there was no reason to believe he was engaged in illegality, that the officer at most had the power to ask a few questions, but no power to arrest or even detain.

And how sad that it has to go this far!

Another ‘Bobbie Burns’ Day

It’d been said tell God your plans – and watch him laugh.

I’ve been reluctant to go in for a back x-ray, on doctor’s order.

I’m just tired of procedures.

Robert Burns – the poet laureate of Scotland wrote Ode to a field mouse.

“The best laid plans of mice and men aft gang agley”

(oft go astray)

I actually decided to go in.

Then I got a cold.  And I feel like crap.  Fevers, chills, muscle pain.  And a temperature of 102°.

Been bedridden since yesterday morning.

Sigh.

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
