Why I Carry a Gun

PEOPLE ASK WHY?
 
Why I Carry a Gun
 
 
My old grandpa said to me ‘Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take an ass whoopin.’
 
I don’t carry a gun to kill people. I carry a gun to keep from being killed.
 
I don’t carry a gun to scare people. I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.
 
I don’t carry a gun because I’m paranoid. I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world..
 
I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil. I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.
 
I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government. I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government..
 
I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry. I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.
 
I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone. I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.
 
I don’t carry a gun because I’m a cowboy. I carry a gun because, when I die and go to heaven, I want to be a cowboy.
 
I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man. I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.
 
I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate. I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.
 
I don’t carry a gun because I love it. I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.
 
Police protection is an oxymoron. Free citizens must protect themselves. Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.
 
Personally, I carry a gun because I’m too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin’….. author unknown (but obviously brilliant)

 A LITTLE GUN HISTORY
 
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

——————————
 
China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated

You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
 
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
 
Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late!
 
The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
 
With guns, we are ‘citizens’. Without them, we are ‘subjects’.
 
During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
 
If you value your freedom, please spread this anti gun-control message to all of your friends.
 
The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.
 
SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN! SWITZERLAND’S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE. SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
 
IT’S A NO BRAINER! DON’T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.
 
I’m a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment! If you are too, please forward.

THANK GOD FOR THE PRESIDENT

25 05 2010

 

THANK GOD FOR THE PRESIDENT

Written by an 82-year-old very wise lady. She gives us a whole new slant on
the amazing job Obama is doing:

1. He destroyed the Clinton Political Machine – Driving a stake thru the
heart of Hillary’s Presidential aspirations – something no Republican was
ever able to do. Remember when a Hillary Presidency scared the daylights out
of you!

2. He killed off the Kennedy Dynasty – No more Kennedy’s trolling Washington
looking for booze and women wanting rides home. American women and Freedom
are safer tonight!

3. He is destroying the Democratic Party before our eyes!
Dennis Moore had never lost a race – quit Evan Bayh had never lost a race –
quit Byron Dorgan – had never lost a race – quit Harry Reid – Soon to be
GONE

These are just a handful of the Democrats whose political careers Obama has
destroyed! By the end of 2010 dozens more will be gone!

In December of 2008 the Democrats were on the rise. In the last two election
cycles they had picked up 14 senate seats and 52 house seats.
The press was touting the death of the Conservative Movement and the
Republican Party  In just one year, Obama put a stop to all of this and will
probably give the house, if not the senate back to the Republicans.

4. He has completely exposed liberals and progressives for what they are.
Every Generation seems to need to relearn the lesson on why they should
never actually put liberals in charge. He is bringing home the lesson very
well!

Liberals tax, borrow and spend – check
Liberals won’t bring themselves to protect America – check Liberals want to
take over the economy – check Liberals think they know what is best for
everyone – check Liberals aren’t happy till they are running YOUR life –
check

5. He has brought more Americans back to conservatism than anyone since
Reagan. In One year he rejuvenated the Conservative movement and brought out
to the streets millions of Freedom Loving Americans.  Name me one other time
in your life that you saw your friends and neighbors this interested in
taking back America !

6. His amazing leadership has sparked the greatest period of sales of
firearms and ammunition this country has seen. Law abiding citizens have
rallied and have provided a “stimulus” to the sporting goods field while
other industries have failed, faded or moved off-shore!

7. In all honesty one year ago I was more afraid than I had ever been in my
life. Not of the economy but of the direction our country was going. I
thought Americans had forgotten what this country was all about.  My
neighbors, friends, strangers proved to me that my lack of confidence of the
Greatness and Wisdom of the American people was flat out wrong.

8. When the American People wake up no smooth talking teleprompter reader
can fool them!

Barak Obama woke up these Great Americans!  Again I want to say Thank you
Barak Obama!  This is exactly the kind of hope and change we desperately
needed.

Now, if only God be with us…!

AMEN

AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA

17 05 2010

 By Lou Pritchett,   Procter & Gamble

A LETTER FROM A PROCTER AND GAMBLE EXECUTIVE TO THE PRESIDENT* 
  
 THE LAST SENTENCE IS THE MOST CHILLING

Lou Pritchett is one of corporate America ‘s true living legends- an acclaimed author, dynamic teacher and one of the world’s highest rated speakers. Successful corporate executives everywhere recognize him as the foremost leader in change management..  Lou changed the way  America does business by creating an audacious concept that came to be known as “partnering.” Pritchett rose from soap salesman to Vice-President, Sales and Customer Development for Procter and Gamble and over the course of 36 years, made  corporate history.
 AN OPEN LETTER TO 
 PRESIDENT OBAMA
 Dear President Obama:

 You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike 
 any of the others, you truly scare me.

 You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.

 You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive 
 Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no 
 visible signs of support.

 You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth 
 growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

 You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

 You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus 
 don’t understand it at its core.

 You scare me because you lack humility and ‘class’, always blaming others.

 You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned 
 yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to 
 publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see  America fail..

 You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the ‘blame America ‘ 
 crowd and deliver this message abroad.

 You scare me because you want to change America to a European style 
 country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

 You scare me because you want to replace our health care system 
 with a government controlled one.

 You scare me because you prefer ‘wind mills’ to responsibly 
 capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

 You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose 
 that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of 
 living in the world.

 You scare me because you have begun to use ‘extortion’ tactics 
 against certain banks and corporations.

 You scare me because your own political party shrinks from 
 challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

 You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider 
 opposing points of view from intelligent people.

 You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both 
 omnipotent and omniscient.

 You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything 
 you do.

 You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the 
 Limbaugh’s, Hannity’s, O’Reillys and Becks who offer opposing, 
 conservative points of view.

 You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

 Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will 
 probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

 Lou Pritchett 
 * 
 * 
 This letter was sent to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it. 
 Big surprise. Since it hit the internet, however, it has had over 
 500,000 hits. Keep it going. All that is necessary for evil to succeed 
 is that good men do nothing. It’s happening right now.*

Immigrants

13 05 2010

 

Picture add from Google in 5/15/2010 not directly related to the story

 For some reason, people have difficulty structuring their arguments when arguing against supporting the currently proposed immigration revisions. This lady made the argument pretty simple. NOT printed in the Orange County Paper. 


Newspapers simply won’t publish letters to the editor which they either deem politically incorrect (read below) or which does not agree with the philosophy they’re pushing on the public. This woman wrote a great letter to the editor that should have been published; but, with your help it will get published via cyberspace! 

From: 
“David LaBonte” 
My wife, Rosemary, wrote a wonderful letter to the editor of the OC Register which, of course, was not printed. So, I decided to “print” it myself by sending it out on the Internet. Pass it along if you feel so inclined. Written in response to a series of letters to the editor in the Orange County Register: 


Dear Editor: 
So many letter writers have based their arguments on how this land is made up of immigrants. Ernie Lujan for one, suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty because the people now in question aren’t being treated the same as those who passed through Ellis Island and other ports of entry. 

Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to people like Mr. Lujan why today’s American is not willing to accept this new kind of immigrant any longer. Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to the United States, people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in New York and be documented. Some would even get 
down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground. They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times. They made learning English a primary rule in their new American households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home. 


They had waved goodbye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture. Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no labor laws to protect them. All they had were the skills and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity. 


Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out. My father fought along side men whose parents had come straight over from Germany, Italy, France and Japan.  None of these 1st generation Americans ever gave any thought about what country their parents had come from. They were Americans fighting Hitler, Mussolini and the Emperor of Japan. They were defending the United States of America as one people. 


When we liberated France, no one in those villages were looking for the French-American or the German-American or the Irish-American. The people of France saw only Americans. And we carried one flag that represented one country. Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up another country’s flag and waving it to represent who they were. It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here. These immigrants truly knew what it meant to be an American. They stirred the melting pot into one red, white and blue bowl. 


And here we are with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same rights and privileges. Only they want to achieve it by playing with a different set of rules, one that includes the entitlement card and a guarantee of being faithful to their mother country. I’m sorry, that’s not what being an American is all about. I believe that the immigrants who landed on 
Ellis Island in the early 1900s deserve better than that for all the toil, hard work and sacrifice in raising future generations to create a land that has become a beacon for those legally searching for a better life. I think they would be appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign country flags. 


And for that suggestion about taking down the Statue of Liberty, it happens to mean a lot to the citizens who are voting on the immigration bill. I wouldn’t start talking about dismantling the United States just yet.

Dewey Whetsell a longtime commercial fisherman on Sara Palin

7 05 2010

 

Dewey Whetsell a longtime commercial fisherman, veteran fire fighter and fire chief, jazz musician, and poet from Alaska penned a very nice retort to all of those who would say Sarah Palin isn’t the real deal, a true leader.

Those who follow Alaska politics know these stories well, but the rest of America should understand this as well.

You can check out Dewey Whetsell’s website here, the man has a very interesting life’s story.

Here is Dewey’s letter:

 

“The last 45 of my 66 years I’ve spent in a commercial fishing town in Alaska. I understand Alaska politics but never understood national politics well until this last year. Here’s the breaking point: Neither side of the Palin controversy gets It’s not about persona, style, rhetoric, its about doing things. Even Palin supporters never mention the things that I’m about to mention here.

1- Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats, because as soon as Palin took the Governors office away from a fellow Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the Republicans Corrupt Bastards Club (CBC) and sent them packing. Many of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits. The Democrats reacted by skipping around the yard, throwing confetti and singing la la la la (well, you know how they are). Name another governor in this country that has ever done anything similar. But while you’re thinking, I’ll continue.

2- Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to protect the huge, giant oil companies here. So, she constructed and enacted a new system of splitting the oil profits called ACES. Exxon (the biggest corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them don’t let the door hit you in the stern on your way out. They stayed, and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy rich. Of course the other huge international oil companies meekly fell in line. Again, give me the name of any other governor in the country that has done anything similar.

3- The other thing she did when she walked into the governors office is she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects, known as pork. She went through the list, took 85% of them and placed them in the when-hell-freezes-over stack. She let locals know that if we need something built, well pay for it ourselves. Maybe she figured she could use the money she got from selling the previous governors jet because it was extravagant. Maybe she could use the money she saved by dismissing the governor’s cook (remarking that she could cook for her own family), giving back the State vehicle issued to her, maintaining that she already had a car, and dismissing her State provided security force (never mentioning, I imagine, that she’s packing heat herself). I’m still waiting to hear the names of those other governors.

4- Now, even with her much-ridiculed gosh and golly mannerism, she also managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a natural gas pipeline built which will be the biggest private construction project in the history of North America. No one else could do it although they tried. If that doesn’t impress you, then you’re trying too hard to be unimpressed while watching her do things like this while baking up a batch of brownies with her other hand.
5- For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a place called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they couldn’t start drilling. In truth they were holding it like an investment. No governor for 30 years could make them get started. This summer, she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They protested and threatened court action. She shrugged and reminded them that she knew the way to the court house. Alaska won again.

6- President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources for electricity by 2025. Sarah went to the legislature and submitted her plan for Alaska to be at 50% renewables by 2025. We are already at 25%. I can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to style and persona . Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, look cool. But that’s just a cover-up. I’m still waiting to hear from liberals the names of other governors who can match what mine has done in two and a half years. I wont be holding my breath.

By the way, she was content to to return to AK after the national election and go to work, but the haters wouldn’t let her. Now these adolescent screechers are obviously not scuba divers. And no one ever told them what happens when you continually jab and pester a barracuda. Without warning, it will spin around and tear your face off. Shoulda known better.

 

As we have been saying for a long time, Sarah Palin was an incredibly effective Governor, and a true servant of the people. The kind of woman who isn’t afraid of whatever challenge that faces her. As she has shown in the past few weeks, she is more than ready to take on big government, like she has big oil. And if Sarah Palin could tame Exxon-Mobil, I’m sure she will make quick work of D.C.!

BTW, even though she has given Exxon-Mobil absolute fits, they were more than happy to sign on as a partner in the Trans-Canada natural gas pipeline, her crowning achievement as Governor, that Dewey mentions in his letter.

People, like myself, who have followed Sarah for some time, understand the greatness of this woman. Sarah Palin is an American leader who has what is sorely needed today: The ability to get things done, good things for the people.
