Unapologetically American

                                         I came. I saw. I conquered. — Julius Caesar

 

It’s very frustrating and discouraging to be a Man in today’s world. Everyday real men are being inundated with slick media campaigns, television shows, billboards, bus ads…. etc., in attempts to make a “fundamental change” in our Manliness and ultimately, Our Country. I  refuse to succumb to the “Oprah-ization” of America.

On my planet,  there are in fact, differences between the male and female of the species. I believe that it is “settled science” (I took anatomy and physiology classes in college). And, ask ANY Man who has been in a “relationship” with a Woman, he will tell you that there “profound” emotional and “psycho”-illogical differences as well.

All Man humor aside (Not funny to most women), this essay is my personal rant about the fall of the  American Empire much like the Roman Empire. Much like the Romans, in the beginning, the American people were proud, just and honorable and inventive people. America was a worldwide stabilizing force, you screw with our friends, and we’ll kick your ass around the block! America was founded upon Judeo-Christian values. A belief in God, Family, hard work and fair play ruled dominant over the land. And just like the Romans, America is now being destroyed from within by the new “Four Horsemen,” Greed, Apathy, Deception, and Stupidity.

At six years old, my stepson made the comment that gave me pause. A comment that echoed into the far past of my childhood, “Mommy, why does James watch the news and yell at the TV.?” I remember wondering the same thing as a child about my own father. I realized that I have, at least some, influence over the little people in the household. I realize now that I unlike my own father, have a responsibility to put my rants into some context that even a child (many “adult” Americans) can understand. I have a responsibility to educate these children on how to be good people and instill into them their proper role in society at large. Yes, “boys will be boys,” however we have a duty to turn them into good Men.

So, I decided to take on the subjects affecting our lives every day and address these using only the brain power given to me by genetics and God, to put a “beat-down” on all the nonsense of modern or contemporary life in America. Damn-it, it’s time for men to be Men and women to be Women, again.

For you feminist pandering, lingerie, “manscara” wearing metrosexual pussies out there, my words are NOT for you.

 

                     One man with courage makes a majority. — Andrew Jackson

On Friday, 05/08/2015, NYPD Officer Brian Moore was laid to rest by family and friends. Officer Moore was the 5th law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty in 5 months. There were Justice Department and Obama Administration officials present to offer sympathy and words of encouragement to the family and fellow officers…..Uh, you say.  You didn’t know that? Of course not. The Obama Administration only sends representatives to the funerals of “Thugs” (Oops. I forgot that’s the new “N-word.”) and criminals.

That Officer, a kid (25 years old), had 150 arrests. He was great at his job….no, his commitment, his promise to keep the people within his city safe. Every day, as tens of thousands across this great nation do every day, put on his uniform, badge and gun. He left his home each morning probably not contemplating whether he would return that night. Unlike those parasites (some elected) who victimize Americans every day, again, some elected, Officer Moore risked his life to keep the citizens of New York safe.

All over Our great nation, there are Men and Women who mutually pledge to each other their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. But virtually none of these people can be found within the seats of Power in Our Government.

We now live in a time of lawlessness the scope of which has probably never been seen. Pundits blame this societal upheaval on everything from poverty to selfies. We will never get the lawlessness under control until We the People get Our own Government under control. I get it. I understand the mentality. “Why should I have to follow the rules, i.e. the Rule of Law, if my own President doesn’t. If my President can use UAV’s to kill his enemies, why can’t I kill the competitive drug dealer down the block?” “If my Congressman can take money from lobbyist without consequences, why can’t I cheat my insurance company?”

Our Country, our very beginnings were based upon a very simple moral and ethical code. Governments are instituted among men for mutual security. WE ARE THE GOVERNMENT. At least that’s how it’s supposed to be. Citizens are beholding only to each other, not to any government. Notice, I said citizens and NOT Illegal Aliens!

To be a good Man, one must understand history. World history and American history. And we as parents must take up that responsibility. The “State” will only use propaganda to “educate” your child for its own benefit.

For those of you my age (celebrating the 26th anniversary of my 25th Birthday), we understand this well. In 5th grade when the girls were pulled out of class for a “special” assembly, they were talked to about what it meant to become a woman. No, it wasn’t about spending one’s life catering to the needs of your Man, if only.

It seems now we’ve learned that our generation and the preceding ones had it all wrong. Now, in ELEMENTARY classrooms all over the country, Our children are being taught the correct subject matter. Now, 5th and 6th graders are being taught the correct way to use a “strap-on” and condoms, read books called…”My Two Daddies” or “I Have Two Mommies.” Masturbation is good, clean, and healthy fun. And the New Madness, “gender neutrality.” So, now we’ve allowed the state to start “educating” Our children that gender is irrelevant. Boys and girls are the same. We have allowed so-called educators to turn innocent childhood “dress-up” into “Johnny wants to be a girl. So, we should ENCOURAGE him to be just that.” News Flash morons! Two-year-old Johnny doesn’t understand nor cares about whether or not his goldfish is a “boy” or not. He sure as hell has no rational thoughts other than shoes are shoes. Mommy’s or Daddy’s, doesn’t matter. They’re just fun to wear.

And hundreds of thousands of “parents” (Liberal lemmings) are bringing children into the world and not allowing anyone to “label” their child as a boy or girl. Gender neutral nursery colors, gender-neutral clothing, gender-neutral toys, and gender-neutral names. It’s so sad and pathetic, I’m guessing the man…er, male,  just fell into her vagina! I mean if one is so set upon the idea of gender neutrality, how does one figure out how to procreate?

These people are mentally ill. If this shit had started at the beginning of the evolution of the human species, safe to say I wouldn’t be here ranting about it!

The Most Important role for a Real Man is the creation of a loving and stable family unit. One Man and One Woman.

Not to rant about the whole gay marriage issue….oh, screw it! It’s One Man AND One Woman you morons! As you can probably guess, I’m a bit anti-gay marriage. Okay, more than a bit. It’s more like OH, HELL NO! Now “guys,” before you get your little panties in a wad, let me explain.

First of all, I, like many others I’m sure, believe that the “state” should have no role what-so-ever in marriage. Our Founding Fathers didn’t take their woman and run off to the county clerk of court, ask for the form for a marriage license, fill it out, get it notarized and pay a fee, all in order to ask the permission of the STATE to be married. The only person asked for permission to marry was the father of the bride. With his blessing it was off to the CHURCH, again NOT the courthouse, to get married before GOD and those present.

“Marriage” is a tradition born out of RELIGION. Every single culture in the world has a ceremony for the union of a MAN and a WOMAN. And, without exception, involved some kind of God, Goddess, Supernatural spirit or being, involved somehow, someway.

So my stance is that you can have a “civil ceremony” (at the courthouse) and reap all the benefits AND sorrows of a “lifetime” commitment, however, don’t call it marriage. And stop trying to shove a minority viewpoint about a lifestyle down Our collective throats…pun intended. Hey Hillary, you want to talk about the “tyranny of the minority against the majority?” Hint, it’s not guns, it’s “gay rights!” Roughly 3% of the population FORCING their viewpoint upon the 97% majority of this country!

What is happening now in Our country is a split between those who would hold to tradition, an Oath and Allegiance to the Constitution of the United States of America, the Rule of Law and those whose desire it is to shake off their perceived chains of bondage enumerated by those very documents of which they have no understanding. They have little to no understanding of the sacrifices made and bloodshed in order to defend their “Rights”.

Our children exposed to those who espouse a lone secularized belief system all the while subjecting them to the immoral and unhealthy rationalizations of academia and the media according to contemporary philosophy. These individuals outright dismiss the rights and responsibilities of parents, family, and religion. Like it or not, believe or not, Religion is the fundamental underpinning of EVERY society. The fact that you live in a society based on the “Rule of Law” came about in no small part but for religion. Religion creates the social bond that each individual has with each other. It created and affirmed the “social contract” we all share. It is the very basis for ALL codified law since the Code of Hammurabi. When our Founding Fathers wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, they used the word “Creator”. Whom did you think that meant. They stated our Rights come from not mortal man, but from God and nature itself.

These modern institutions systematically strip away the rights and duties of the parent to educate and provide for the welfare of our children as we, the parents see fit. Our children are being taught to rebel against their parents and religion and by doing so they will be freed from the fundamental tyranny and oppression of the expectations of “normal” society, i.e. becoming responsible and accountable members of society. That they will experience nirvana in the light of their own wants and desires. The mantra is…”If it feels good, do it.” Don’t worry about the consequences, the government will nurture and protect you. This is a society of “I, we, want our rights” with no understanding nor regard to the responsibility of exercising those very rights we so desire.

We, the people are lost in the wood. And, yes, we do have miles to go before we sleep. As citizens and parents now more than ever, we cannot afford to be asleep any longer. The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and our deeply held convictions and traditions, religious and otherwise, are not the only weapons we have and can exercise in order to save Our Great Nation. Sure, we have other weapons and it may come to that soon enough. If it does, then it will be a righteous action to defend the Supreme Law of the Land, The Constitution of these United States of America, Not the “Diversified States of America.” It will happen because men of good conscience will not allow Our Republic to slip quietly into obscurity. Good Men will take up arms to defend what is precious to them, Our families and the futures of Our children.

God Bless us all. There are those who disagree with what I say here. Realize that it is because of individuals such as Veterans and those who continue to put their lives on the line (military and law enforcement) that you may exercise the Right to disagree without reprisal or recrimination, you the few, the minority.

The Pending Anti-Gun State Supreme Court Case You Haven’t Heard About

Brady Campaign Seeks to Overturn Ruling Protecting Gun Manufacturer from  Liability.

-Spoiler Alert…Not going to happen.

We were all saddened and shocked by the loss of life in Sandy Hook CT. in 2012. A.L. (as I refuse to name assholes who commit horrible crimes), Murdered his Mother, the Legal Purchaser of an AR-15 type firearm. He then took her keys and accessed the LOCKED cabinet and removed firearms and then drove to the elementary school where he MURDERED 6 adults and 20 children. His mental health was barely a blip on the MSM radar.

Soon after, scumbag ambulance chasers (a.k.a. Attorneys) tripped all over themselves like greyhounds chasing a mechanical rabbit, in the hopes of the victims’ families would hire them to take legal action against anyone and everyone connected to this Criminal Tragedy.

A Connecticut judge, in October 2016, threw out a lawsuit brought against Remington Arms Company, the manufacturer, the wholesale distributor, and the retailer of the semi-automatic rifle used in the shooting. Judge Barbara Bellis ruled that the suit “falls squarely within the broad immunity” provided to gun manufacturers and dealers by the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. The Connecticut Supreme Court heard the case on appeal this past November after Connecticut Superior Court Judge Barbara N. Belli explained in a 54-page memorandum (original 2016 case) that Remington is protected under the provisions of the Protection for Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which prohibits lawsuits being filed against firearms manufacturers and sellers for actions taken by third parties.

What is the Protection for Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) and why it’s important? First, though, let talk about what it isn’t. It is NOT a “Special Legal Protection” for manufacturers, distributors and lawful licensed sellers of guns. It offers no protection from Unlawful acts or practices related to firearms.

On the contrary, it only codifies and ensures that the firearms industry is treated like any other industry when it comes to lawful commerce.

“The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act is also commonly referred to as the “Gun Protection Act.” The law dismissed all current claims against gun manufacturers in both federal and state courts and pre-empted future claims. The law could not be clearer in stating its purpose: “To prohibit causes of action against manufacturers, distributors, dealers, and importers of firearms or ammunition products, and their trade associations, for the harm caused solely by the criminal or unlawful misuse of firearm products or ammunition products by others when the product functioned as designed and intended.”

When some stupid “parent” gives their kid a car with a top speed of 200mph, and the kid drives recklessly or drunk and injures or kills someone, who do we blame? Why the driver, of course. How many protests or lawsuits have you seen against automobile manufactures for fast cars, high-capacity vehicles (Vans or buses) or demands for on-board breathalyzers that force you to “blow” before starting the vehicle? Sounds crazy, right? We go after the Person, the “actor” who engaged in the reckless conduct. We don’t blame the inanimate object, the tool used. Why are guns any different? Like a car, knife, hammer, baseball bat…etc., A firearm has specific use under a specific set of circumstances.

The PLCAA ensures that the firearms industry can operate with the SAME protections as the company that makes cars or can openers.

“Lawyers for the Sandy Hook families argued that Remington should be brought to court under the Act’s “Negligent Entrustment Exemption.” Remington “knows that civilians are unfit to operate AR-15s” but continues to sell them to the civilian market. In other words, Remington knows that at some point someone will commit a crime with one of their firearms, and they should, therefore, be subject to legal action. This exemption stipulates that when a manufacturer or seller has reason to suspect a purchaser might commit a crime with a firearm, the manufacturer or seller has a responsibility to prohibit that purchase from taking place. Not surprisingly, the judge was unconvinced. She gave a number of reasons for her decision, but one revolved around the idea that “civilians” is too broad a social class to support a claim for negligent entrustment. Remington can’t be held liable for anything anyone in the world might do with their firearms.”

Not to be deterred (of course), the above-mentioned ambulance chasing scumbags appealed, their case to the state Supreme Court. In addition to their original argument to Connecticut Superior Court Judge Barbara N. Belli, they are now including a 1977 case involving a “Slingshot” injury. Yes, you read that right.

“The case in Michigan was a 1977 lawsuit by the family of a 12-year-old against a company that manufactured slingshots. The boy was injured when he was struck in the eye by a pellet fired from a slingshot that ricocheted off a tree. The court allowed the case to go before a jury, ruling that the company entrusted the slingshot to a class of people, in this case, younger children, that made the ultimate accident foreseeable.”

Are you laughing? I did. The case clearly does not exhibit persuasive let alone a binding influence in this case. Does the PLCAA give blanket immunity to the manufactures, distributors or gun sellers? The answer is, No. If any of these entities violate Federal, State or Local laws, the PLCAA protections will not apply. This leaves open the possibility of not only criminal but, civil liability as well. However, for that to happen, one would have to prove that the manufacturer supplied a firearm to an individual, Having Knowledge that the individual was a person who, intended to commit a criminal act, or, that the Distributor (who supplies firearms to LICENSED dealers) is Unlawfully providing firearms to prohibited “persons” or dealers. For dealers, like me, for there to be a successful prosecution or civil lawsuit, I have to knowingly sell a firearm to a person, who intended to use the firearm in an unlawful manner.

Neither the seller nor a firearms manufacturer or a distributor is responsible for the criminal acts of a lunatic. Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act was needed to stop “politically motivated” and “frivolous” lawsuits “intended to bankrupt the gun industry.”

Patriotism

After reading the article entitled “Jock Culture,”  By Robert Lipsyte, I was puzzled by his use of the word “patriotic” when referencing jocks. Today, more so than eight years ago, there are many examples of athletes who exemplify many character traits. However, “patriotic” would not be at the top of the list. But, within the context of the 1960s, I would agree with Bill Stowe’s assessment of the university culture at that time in history.

Today, we have the opposite of the late 1960s in colleges and universities across America. Today, the “pukes” are now running the show in academia with the jocks who spend much of their existence in a zone of neutrality not unlike the DMZ between North and South Korea or engaged in outright hostility against American culture in the form of disrespect towards our Nation Anthem and our flag. There, they remain precariously perched between the black and white of the so-called moral certainty of the Snowflakes in the Social Justice Warrior movement and the perpetually grey skies of the “real world” where certainty does not exist.

I’m quite certain that there are few “snowflakes” who can spell the word “patriotic” let alone define it with any great certainty. Although having many jobs during my lifetime, I believe my military career is what I miss most. Although I considered myself to be a patriot as a young man in high school, it was the U.S. Army that gave me what he needed to grow into what I considered a “true patriot.” The “Oath of Office” that I recited upon entry into the Army, was and still is very important to me. It is virtually the same oath as taken during my career in law enforcement. I have stated many times that one is not relieved of the duties and responsibilities of the Oath simply by leaving active duty service.

Patriotism, ” Is like a relationship between a man and a woman. Motives are quite often misunderstood and a matter of convenience. People who occasionally enjoy waving flags often don’t fully understand why they wave them and don’t deserve to have one”

Some equate Patriotism with Nationalism. And, in the superficial meaning of both, I can see why some may be confused. To me, patriotism is the love of one ’s country. I love my country, however, I don’t often trust my government or those who make the decisions that affect the very nature of American life. Nationalism, on the other hand, is the devil which can lead to extremism and war if not kept on a tight leash. Nationalism is often misused by despots and dictators. I am a “nationalist” and I want my President to be one as well. America needs a leader who puts America’s wellbeing before giving consideration to any other country.

Every American should be a Patriot and a nationalist. Today, the Patriot seems to be a scarce commodity. We are not. As the last national election proved, patriots are still a large and viable force. Considering what we have running the streets now, anarchists, communists, and socialists, the patriotic are now awake and mobilizing to defend Our Country, Our Constitution and the Rule of Law.

A few weeks ago, I saw one of these “protesters” carrying a sign that read, ““Be proud of your people when you don’t have to be ashamed of any of its social classes.” It should be noted that this is a direct quote from “Mein Kampf” written by Adolf Hitler.

If God forbid, we allow these disruptors to get out of hand, can Civil War be far behind? If things don’t change, and quickly, we will be in a state of civil war sooner than later.

PRAGER: The Greatest Hysteria In American History.

The Greatest Hysteria In American History

Vera Miles.

You and I are living through the greatest mass hysteria in American history. For many Americans, the McCarthy era held that dubious distinction, but what is happening now is incomparably worse.

For one thing, any hysteria that existed then was directed against the greatest evil in the world at the time: communism. Then-Sen. Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee notwithstanding, there really were Americans in important positions who supported communist regimes enslaving their populations and committing mass murder. McCarthy was on to something.

For another, the mainstream media did not support McCarthy. Most in the media were highly critical of McCarthy. Today, the mainstream media are not the voices of caution. They are the creators of the hysteria. There have been conspiracy theories throughout American history (e.g. Lee Harvey Oswald didn’t kill President John F. Kennedy alone; the moon landing never happened). But this is the first time the media have created and promoted a conspiracy. Not surprisingly, they have dropped any pretense of objective reporting in the process.

And while some Americans were unfairly labeled communists during the McCarthy era, countless Democratic politicians and leaders in news and entertainment have called members of the Trump administration and the tens of millions of Americans who support the president fascists, white supremacists, haters, xenophobes and even Nazis.

MSNBC contributor Jill Wine-Banks said of the Trump-Putin Helsinki press conference: “It’s just as serious to me as the Cuban Missile Crisis in terms of an attack, or the 9/11 attack. … (Trump’s) performance today will live in infamy as much as the Pearl Harbor attack or Kristallnacht.”

Former communist, Obama operative and CIA Director John Brennan tweeted: “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous.”

The constant invoking of the Holocaust, the Nazis and now Kristallnacht (the unofficial beginning of the Holocaust, a night in 1938 when German Jews were beaten to death, synagogues were burned and Jewish shops were destroyed) only minimize the evils of Nazism and the Holocaust. A young American who, having gone to a typical university, probably knows nothing about the Nazis and the Holocaust will now think Nazism and the Holocaust were 20th-century expressions of Trump and American conservatism.

All this hysteria is built on next to nothing. At its core, it is an attempt to undo the 2016 election. The mainstream media refuse to accept that Hillary Clinton lost. They said she would win — handily. They predicted a landslide. How could they have possibly gotten it so wrong? Their answer is they didn’t; Trump and Putin stole it.

If truth mattered to the media, every American would know Trump has been harder on Russia than former President Barack Obama was. Every American would be reminded that Obama reassured Putin’s right-hand man, then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev, that he wouldn’t be too tough on Russia. Thinking his mic was off, he whispered into Medvedev’s ear: “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”

If truth mattered to the media, every American would be reminded that Obama sent Army meals to Ukraine and Trump has sent anti-tank missiles and other arms to repel the Russians.

If truth mattered to the media, every American would be reminded that Obama watched Syria burn and Russia come to dominate that country, while Trump has bombed Syrian military installations, including one where Russians were killed.

If truth mattered to the media, every American would be reminded that it is Trump who has weakened Russia’s ally Iran, while Obama immeasurably strengthened it.

Instead, the media scream “treason,” “impeachment” and the like 24/7; Hollywood stars curse the president; others curse his daughter or the first lady (one of the most regal in American history) and show President Trump in various death poses. Meanwhile, leftist mobs shout at administration officials and Republican members of Congress while they eat in restaurants, shop in stores and sleep in their homes.

If you vote Democrat this November, you are voting for hysteria, lies, socialism and even the cheapening of the Holocaust.

But more than anything, a vote for Democrats in November is a vote for hysteria — the greatest and darkest in American history.

Please, Just Shut the Fuck Up Already!

If it weren’t for the fact that 17 beautiful children are dead, the response from the Left and the damaged survivors in the aftermath of the mass shooting in Parkland, FL would be laughable.

Everybody and I mean EVERYBODY has an opinion on the subject of guns, gun parts, and, of course, those Evil gun owners. You know, the 85 Million+ gun owners who murdered No One. There are so many lies and “misleading” facts, I truly don’t know where to begin. So, let us begin with the article penned by Col. Ralph Peters (Ret.) on February 22, 2018, in the New York Times. https://nypost.com/2018/02/22/automatic-weapons-dont-belong-in-the-hands-of-everyone/

All of his arguments are based upon ignorance, lies, misrepresentations, and, personal biases masquerading as fact. Many of his opinions run contrary to U.S. history and court rulings to include the U.S. Supreme Court. Anyone with a basic knowledge of firearms and the use thereof knows more than this man. So, allow me to get started countering his rantings of a pissed off old man.

But, before I take this man’s arguments and discredit them one-by-one, let’s debunk the use of the term, “Assault Weapon.” The term “assault weapon” originated in Germany. The term assault rifle is generally attributed to Adolf Hitler, who for propaganda purposes used the German word “Sturmgewehr” (which translates to “storm rifle” or “assault rifle”), as the new name for the MP43, subsequently known as the Sturmgewehr 44 or StG 44. The “assault rifle,” was/is a select fire. This means that the gun can be fired in both semi-automatically (one bullet fired with One pull of the trigger) or in a “full-automatic” modes (One pull of the trigger results in multiple bullets being fired). In 1986, the Federal Government made it illegal to sell or possess fully-automatic firearms for the general public. Although still lawful to own, one must apply for the privilege by applying to the federal government in a long application process to include an extensive background check along with a $400 fee. Then one still has to find a seller willing to part with a pre-1986 firearm and it will cost you with prices starting around $10,000.

Semi-automatic firearms have been around since the invention of the first semi-automatic gun in 1885. The first semi-automatic rifle was introduced in 1885, the first semi-automatic pistol in 1892, and the first semi-automatic shotgun in 1902.

Back to Col. Peters. His article is not what I would expect coming from an educated military man. If I didn’t know better, I would have thought this was written by an anti-gun zealot from “Mom’s Demand…blah, blah, blah…” The first point he makes is just wrong.

These are military weapons (the AR-15, and semi-automatic rifles in general). Their purpose is to kill human beings. They’re not used for hunting (unless you want to destroy the animal’s meat). They’re lousy for target shooting. But they’re excellent tools for mass murder.”

In response to the first sentence, No. No the AR-15 and other military-style firearms are NOT military weapons. The only attribute the Civilian AR-15, AK-74/47 and others rifles share with the actual military versions is the cosmetics. These civilian firearms ONLY look like the military versions. The actual mechanical functions that allow for Full-Automatic fire are only available in Actual military issued weapons. Next, purposed for killing human beings. EVERY firearm ever designed has the potential to be used to kill a human being. as a point of fact, the very first firearms were designed to do just that.

The arguments that…”They’re not used for hunting,” and “they’re lousy for target shooting,” are, on the face, farcical. The AR-15 has been designed and re-designed in Many different calibers for many specific uses to include intermediate and large game hunting. As for “target shooting,” apparently to the teetering Peters, has never heard of 3-Gun competition and other National sporting competitions, some at the FEDERAL level sponsored by the government to include the annual Camp Perry Championship.

Peters goes on…”The latest school shooter could not have done what he did with a sports rifle or shotgun.” First of all, the AR rifle system as well as variants of the AK-47, are legally termed “Modern Sporting Rifles.” There are hundreds of designs of sporting rifles that are semi-automatic in function. As for shotguns, The first successful semi-automatic shotgun was marketed in 1902. And, armed with a modern shotgun, the school shooter here in Florida, could have killed just as effectively as with the AR-15, especially since FOUR police officers/Deputies were too cowardly or Stupid to do their jobs, enter the school and KILL the shooter.

Peters ignorance or outright left bias on the 2nd Amendment to our Constitution is astounding.

That “well regulated militia” part always gets left out. It’s called the “National Guard” and “the Reserves.” Did any of the recent shooters belong to a “well regulated militia”? As a matter of fact, I have not been able to identify a senior NRA executive who’s served in our military or in law enforcement — that’s patriotism for ya.”

First of all, Dick…er, Col. Peters, the term “militia” does NOT refer to the National Guard. Traditional State Militias were not adopted into the U.S. Army as the “National Guard” until World War I in 1917. The U.S. Constitution which the Bill of Rights is enshrined was ratified in 1788, that’s a full 129 years. And, militias have been around since 1636 when Massachusetts codified the existence of the militia, the forerunner of the National Guard. The militia was made up of ALL men aged 16 to 60. They were tasked with maintaining military arms and ammunition in defense of the colony. To attack the NRA leadership over military or law enforcement participation is a Strawman argument and a learned man such as Peters should know better.

As for putting weapons in schools, that’s a punk idea. More innocents would die.”

Col. Peters is engaging in the fallacy of “false cause” in this statement. Exactly what empirical evidence is there for this argument? None. Zero. As for it being a “punk” idea, I haven’t heard one single punk on the street nor punk musician for that matter suggest this.

He continues…”When the shooting starts, even the best-trained, most disciplined soldiers and cops — US Army Rangers or NYPD SWAT members — don’t put every round on target. The notion that a guard or teacher who goes to the range once a quarter would keep kids safe is profoundly divorced from reality.”

Really, Dick? I challenge you to go to ANY shooting competition where law enforcement and civilians compete together. Although there are exceptions, civilians out shoot law enforcement by a large margin. Here is but glaring bit of actual data gleaned from Chicago. Here is the data based on your “best-trained…cops.” Whom, by the way, are only required to qualify with their weapons One or Two times per YEAR!

Among the findings involving the deaths of 92 individuals:

•At least 2,623 bullets were fired by police in 435 shootings. In 235 of those incidents, officers struck at least one person; in another 200 shootings, officers missed entirely.

•The officers who fired weren’t rookies but, on average, had almost a decade of experience.

•Of the 520 officers who fired their weapons, more than 60 of them did so in more than one incident.

•The number of shootings by police — hits and misses — declined over the six years, from more than 100 in 2011 to 44 in 2015.

That’s more than 28 bullets per individual shot by the highly trained and skilled “cops.”

So, why my vulgar title for this essay? It expresses my frustration with individuals, organizations, even those with military experience/education, making statements, arguments and interviews to the press, who have no to limited knowledge on the subject of which they speak. I’m sick and tired of people using emotion and misinformation, deliberate and otherwise, to further an agenda based on political or personal feelings and not hard data and facts, not to mention Our Constitutional Rights!

Keep Political Correctness Out of Medicine

I just read an article by PAMELA WIBLE, MD. another post-hippie era nutjob. The name of the article is,

“Stop saying these 7 shaming words in medicine. Right now.”

The premise of the article is that the words we use as practitioners when speaking to our patients are an important consideration. And if she had ended there, I’d have no issues. But, this wasn’t to be. She states that we shouldn’t talk down to, chastise, denigrate…etc. those under our care and, generally speaking, I agree. However, she takes these considerations way too far to the Left. I’m so surprised (Insert sarcasm here).

So, in my essay, I will take on her assertions and offer my personal and professional opinion on this subject point by point.

1.“Don’t say committed Suicide. Committed implies a crime. Committed rape, burglary, murder. Suicide is not a crime; it’s a medical condition that has been taboo for too long. Let’s come out of the dark ages and use proper language to discuss the cause of death. It’s died OF pneumonia, heart attack, stroke, suicide. Say died OF suicide (or died BY suicide).”

Obviously, she is not a lawyer/prosecutor. The reason why she says “committed implies a crime,” is because It Is A Crime! Suicide or Attempted suicide IS illegal, i.e. a crime, in virtually every state in America. It’s a crime against the person. Attempting to equate suicide with some terminal or acute medical condition or injury is just plain silly. Afraid to offend the sensibilities of family and friends of the deceased by using the term Committed Suicide is to nullify the seriousness of the subject matter. Especially, where there may be a vulnerable person present or involved. Yes, we should be compassionate, but we, as practitioners should NEVER sugar-coat suicide in order to soft-peddle the lack of support prior to the act, or the personal responsibility of the person who ended their own life. Virtually every person interviewed who attempted suicide had clearly stated they the moment they attempted to take their life, there was “instant” regret.

2. “Don’t say she IS Bipolar. People are people first. Some get physical and/or mental health conditions. The health condition is not their identity. She HAS pneumonia, heart disease, depression, not she IS pneumonia, heart disease, depression. Say she HAS bipolar disorder (or she is a person WITH bipolar disorder).”

This again is just silly. There is NO difference between her definitions…None! I’m diabetic…oh, wait. That’s just wrong! I have an endocrine system disorder. a pancreatic disorder, an Islet cell disorder, a carbohydrate/sugar intake disorder…etc. Where does the silliness end? I’ve never met a patient who has said: “I am a person with bipolar disorder.” It’s unrealistic for practitioners to converse using textbook language when speaking to patients. Honestly, you have to “dumb-down” explanations and terminology in order for the patient to understand their situation and choices. There’s not enough time in the day for practitioners and patients to engage in drawn-out conversations involving textbook definitions/terminology and still provide quality care.

3. “Don’t say he IS an Addict. As in #2, people are people first. He is not a disease. He is not a behavior. Thus, he is not a substance abuser or an addict. He is a person who may have an addiction or a substance abuse disorder. Say he HAS an addiction.”

Please allow me to rephrase the above statement using different words…

“Don’t say he is a criminal. As in #2, people are people first. He is not a murderer. He is not a behavior. Thus, he is not a criminal or murderer. He is a person who may have criminal tendencies or psychological disorder. Say he has a “behavioral or psychological disorder with tendencies to harm others.” -Stupid, right?

Do you notice how she removes all stigma of an act(s) involving personal responsibility or culpability?

4. “Don’t say patient IS NON-COMPLIANT. Non-compliant blames the patient for not following a plan that she may have not understood or agreed to follow. Maybe she simply did not have money to buy the medication or the recommended treatment. Be precise and accurate with words, especially when placed in a permanent medical record. Don’t blame or shame. Be curious and engaging. Ask, “IS THE TREATMENT WORKING?”

“Non-compliant blames the patient for not following a plan…” Really? Who else is there to blame? It’s either the patient or the outside “caretaker” in the home environment. If the patient does not have the funds for specific medications, I’ve seen the physician, case manager, social worker, etc. assist many people. Many times, it’s the patient themselves who refuse to take responsibility for their own care. People with moderate to severe OSA (sleep apnea) not utilizing their CPAP machines for weeks, months or Years at a time. Or, cancer patients who refuse to quit smoking. I’ve seen patients on oxygen sitting in wheelchairs lighting up, the dedicated ones will place the cigarette right in their stoma. Sometimes shaming Works! Sometimes, “bullying” does wonders. Some people need an Honest “Coming to Jesus moment” to make an impression. Bottom line, if a patient makes a conscious choice to Not to follow a physician’s treatment plan or instructions that are the very definition of Non-compliance. “IS THE TREATMENT WORKING?!” Really, how exactly does one judge that if the patient is Non-Compliant!

5. “Don’t say, Provider. A provider is a person who provides something. How nebulous. In medicine, a provider is an economic term used to lump all the revenue-generators together into one pile (often to see how much more money can be squeezed out of them). It’s a dehumanizing word that lacks precision and, honestly, it’s offensive to the people who have spent so many years of their lives to achieve mastery in their chosen profession. Use proper terminology. Say NURSE PRACTITIONER, MIDWIFE, PHYSICIAN. If you must use a collective term, say HEALTH PROFESSIONALS. Sometimes, I say HEALERS.”

This one is just idiotic. In my years as a practitioner, I’ve NEVER heard ANY physician, practitioner…etc, refer to themselves as a “provider” to a patient. You’re the ONLY one, Dr., that I’ve ever heard of using the term “healer” (Except for those charlatan psychic healers). Physicians don’t heal anything or anyone. The body, under the right conditions, heals itself. You may offer treatments, surgeries and maintenance drugs but many times you engage in the prolonging of the suffering of patients trying to die as nature demands. Cuddos to you.

6. “Don’t say Midlevel. What is that? Maybe it’s when an elevator gets stuck between two floors? Again (see #5) this is a word used by healthcare administrators to describe revenue generators who are somewhere halfway between a nurse and a doctor (I think). Use proper terminology. Say PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT or NURSE PRACTITIONER.”

That may be a corporate term and, I’ve never heard a healthcare administrator use this term, ever. Just more nonsensical crap to increase her word count.

7. “Don’t say Burnout. Physician burnout is a term of oppression that blames the doctor for not keeping up with an inhumane schedule (30-hour shifts, 120-hour work weeks) in a toxic workplace that may include hazing, bullying, and no time to eat or take bathroom breaks. Even on their so-called time off, doctors may still be working on chart notes at home in bed on the weekends. Burnout blames the victim and deflects attention from the perpetrator. Speak the truth. Say HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION or HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE. Don’t say burnout, say ABUSE.”

I’ve seen some healthcare workers with/suffering “burnout.” And, I’ve never heard anyone say anything negative about these individuals other than criticizing them for NOT seeking help or getting out long before he or she became a “problem.” As a matter of fact, it’s been my experience for the PEERS, so-called colleagues or “friends” to be the last ones to offer help or compassion for these people.

The only person who should be ashamed is you. To use terms like…”Human Rights Violations or Human Rights Abuse,” belittles the peoples of the World who have suffered ACTUAL Abuses of their Human Rights.

“Dr.” Wible, I think you belong in a commune somewhere in the Northwest where they grow hemp. I’m sure that they would eat up your mindless dribble…I mean since they’re almost always “high.”
