Forget Fact, I'm Jumping On The Bandwagon

Come on!!!  Look, just because I find Hillary to be the most annoying candidate since John Kerry does not mean I am all in for Trump.

Just because I call people on their nonsense does not mean I am all in for whoever they consider to be their opponent.  That, though, is most common with progressives--either you agree or you are a racist nazi who needs killing to save the rest of humanity.  For people who pretend peace, I find the hard core koolaid drinking progressive frightening due to their extremes of what they claim they wish on their opponents.  More hateful than those they claim are hateful. Bizarre.

So now we have a petition circulating to "ban assault weapons".  They go on about how no one needs military grade weapons, etc.  They have people convinced that little Johnny can go to 7-11 and purchase a fully automatic weapon.

They are already banned, freaky people.  What you can get is analogous to those mini bikes tricked out to look like a Harley.  It is not a soldier's weapon.

If they have to deceive people in their crusade to put yet more power in the hands of the few--government--and again infringe on the individual's life and choices, then maybe they are not as sincere, honest and altruistic as they pretend.  Or else they are just stubbornly stupid.

assault rifle definition:
a military rifle capable of both automatic and semiautomatic fire, utilizing an intermediate-power cartridge.

Automatic,, like  Tommy gun.  Get it?  No, you can't.  Like I said, if you could I'd have three.  

I hate liars who try to make laws and mess with people who are doing no harm.  If your gun looks like a military weapon, because maybe the design just makes sense, then you must be bad.  You don't need that gun.  Because I say so.  And I know what everyone needs and should have.  

America has never been perfect, but it used to be a lot more free in ways.  And more fun.  I think our idea of making it up to Blacks and others was to make everyone equally miserable, rather than equally free to be happy.  Because people are trouble I guess.  And they think there is something holy in government so they allow abuses that would get us roundly thrashed or murdered if that is how we treated our neighbors.

It is insane.  Do the talking point people just parrot everything they see as their team's stance?  It is nuts, mindless, and dangerous--far more dangerous than Trump is the herd mentality and insistence on totalitarianism.

Wait wait, I Can Do Better---inane insights

OK.  Never let a good mass murder go to waste.  So, even trying to avoid the maudlin melee of platitudes and pronouncements, I encountered pleas for Congress to "just DO something!!!", for bans on "automatic assault weapons' [wtf], bans on 30 round magazines for rifles, woeful laments about why 'we' can't accept those not like 'ourselves', and more.

And I was seriously avoiding a lot of news.  This is just facebook.  That is what I get for having far left field family and friends, and some seriously intellectually challenged people who are unaware of their dimness, and some more right leaning friends too.

The simple memes pretending profundity, pasted over pictures of famous actors or scenes of soldiers or who knows what.  These are posters you'd see in a class on propaganda techniques.  Classic.

I don't want to miss my chance to express pretended emotions and profound wisdom (in my own mind), like so many others.

My meme:

It is high time that we, as a society, arm our LBGTQ,etc., brothers, sisters, and other, to the teeth so that they can finally take their place in our culture, and pop a cap in those trying to cap them.  This is not about islam, this is about a well armed rainbow.  It can never be about islam, because.

Maybe put that over a picture of flamboyant folk from a gay pride parade.  Maybe they could be stoning a guy who looks like the latest shooter, buried to the waist like they do to women over in the hard core hotbeds of religious zealotry which includes throwing rocks and tossing humans from high places.

Couldn't find anything better than this on short notice.  It will do.  Just claim this person is transgender.  Who can argue?

Good God, KoolAid People, Really?

Like was predicted in the last post, people all over news media and social media are running amok with inaccurate, ridiculous talking points supplied by their local koolaid distributor.  Pictures of "assault rifles"  which can't even fire full automatic (which technically means it is not an assault rifle) are posted with dire, hand wringing memes, which, in reality, are totally off point and ridiculous.

Here's the deal.  If you are a good progressive you have to want "common sense gun control", and you have to pretend that our gun laws are something other than what they are.  If it was that easy to get a machine gun, I'd own at least three.  But the real pretense is that citizens having weapons is the problem.  Islam on the war path is in no way a problem.  That is what you have to believe.

It is the gun.  Or the magazine that holds more rounds than people who have never confronted the real scum of the world think you need.  People who not only do not own weapons, but who know nothing about them.   But the progressive's insistence upon being the arbiter of how much, or what you need--whether it be bullets, money, children, calories, you name it--is what makes me not a progressive.  That attitude of deciding for others annoys me to no end.

But that has long been the way of public school and our government.  Diversity is a value all by itself, and you better conform to the preset stereotype of an idiot who thinks ethnicity is a character value, or else.  Just one example of the bizarre pretense which is our public life.

The usual gun arguments are nuts.  Granted, maybe one in ten is even slightly safe to trust with deadly weapons.  The reason I oppose pretty much all weapons restrictions is because, in my view, maybe one in fifty government people can be trusted with any sort of power whatsoever, and probably one in a hundred of those who direct where government guns are pointed can be trusted.

Guns in the hands of citizens won't do much against the government, local or otherwise, but it does help give a feeling of some hope against riffraff groups and thugs.  Why people get so worried about non criminals having fire power is beyond me.  The sticky part is in their insistence that they decide who gets to have a gun and under what conditions.  Does this not shriek of totalitarian police state in the making?

Well, I suppose the important thing is that we don't get all biased against lunatic muslims and ISIS supporters just because of one rotten apple.

The usual facebook parrots are posting nonsense from their talking point sites that tell them what to think.  Or what to pretend to think.  What they think is they hate certain types of people and will do anything to ridicule and express self righteous hatred.  But they pretend the 'other' is the hater.

Really?  There are people who actually listen to Hillary as she does the usual charlatan demagoguery on the gun thing.  They just want more power and control.  They could care less about people being shot or harmed.  Gun experts in DC.  Let's get the congressman who thought Guam would capsize from too many troops being stationed there.  He'll know what we should do.

And that is why, as dangerous and troublesome as life and my fellow citizens are, I would rather not have government people controlling everything from my diet to my self defense decisions.   I fear them more than my neighbors, and my neighbors are heavily armed.

I read some second hand account of Trump's reaction.  They were all aghast because he said I told you so, more or less.  I guess he did if they say so.  That is worse than insisting that people in the USA can go anywhere and buy an "assault rifle".  Not so.  And again, they pretend you can get fully automatic and all that, which you cannot.  So the common sense babble by people who have no idea what that means is worse than Donald somehow using it to say he predicted it so he is omniscient.

Let no good massacre go to waste.  That is one thing on which both republicans and democrats agree.  Bipartisan demagoguery.  yay
