Why does this Generation Not Understand What Free Speech Is?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. -1st Amendment, Bill of Rights, Constitution of the United States

Speech can often be ferocious, ruthless or merely political speech with which we disagree. But whenever one starts to think that they have the “Right” to block or prevent someone’s invitation to speak, one must ask: Who is the gatekeeper?  Because once you allow someone to decide what’s acceptable speech and what’s not, you no longer have “free speech.” With few exceptions, there should be no restrictions on speech, public or otherwise.

 One of the very first significant court cases to reach SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States), was Schenck v. the United States. During World War I, Charles Schenck mailed circulars to draftees in response to the Conscription Act. The circulars urged men to refuse to report for military service but advised only peaceful activities such as petitioning to repeal the Conscription Act. Schenck was charged with conspiracy to violate the Espionage Act by “attempting to cause insubordination in the military and to obstruct recruitment.” Associate Justice Holmes, speaking for a unanimous Court, concluded that Schenck’s “speech” was not protected. Every act depends on the circumstances. “The question in every case is whether the words used are used in such circumstances and are of such a nature as to create a clear and present danger that they will bring about the substantive evils that Congress has a right to prevent.” Circumstances which would normally be tolerated in normal times, would not be tolerated during a time of war (“Schenck v. United States.” 249US47)

Schenck mailed circulars to those subject to the draft. A labor-intensive project to be sure. Today, we have the internet or World Wide Web. I believe the internet to be the single most significant boost to free speech in the history of not only the United States but, to the world. Now we can express ourselves instantaneously to nearly anyone on the planet. Some see this as a good thing, while others (mostly governments) view this as an evil.

It is neither. People are good or evil.  In April of this year (2017), a young blogger from Pakistan wrote on the subject of free speech. In her blog entitled, “Speak for your Civil Right,” she begins with this quote;

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”  – (George Orwell)

However, her argument becomes the antithesis of what you would expect. It is her view, especially when it comes to Social Media, free speech is only important to the point where your words offend. Then, in her words;

Freedom of speech is not simply a freedom to think and say what you wish, but to speak for yourself, to speak from the heart, and to be accountable for your words.” And, “We need to give space to other people so that everyone has equal right to speak. So, we as human beings need to use freedom of speech in a positive way because it’s our duty to remove the negativity that people have in their minds by the power of speech. “

In a more recent SCOTUS case, R. A. V. v. St. Paul 505 U.S. 377 (1992), the Court reinforced the boundaries under which municipal and state governments must operate. The St. Paul, Minnesota, Bias-Motivated Crime Ordinance, which prohibits the display of a symbol which one knows or has reason to know “arouses anger, alarm or resentment in others on the basis of race, color, creed, religion or gender.”

In this case, several teenagers allegedly burned a crudely fashioned cross on a black family’s lawn. The police charged one of the teens under a local bias-motivated criminal ordinance which prohibits the display of a symbol which “arouses anger, alarm or resentment in others on the basis of race, color, creed, religion or gender.”

After being dismissed at the local trial court level, the Supreme Court of the State of Minnesota appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court which held, “…The ordinance, even as narrowly construed by the State Supreme Court, is facially unconstitutional because it imposes special prohibitions on those speakers who express views on the disfavored subjects of “race, color, creed, religion or gender.” At the same time, it permits displays containing abusive invective if they are not addressed to those topics. Moreover, in its practical operation, the ordinance goes beyond mere content, to an actual viewpoint, discrimination.”

It is my belief that Freedom of Speech as codified within Our National (and State) Constitution, is the foundation on which all other 1st Amendment freedoms are based. Without it, the other freedoms listed would be meaningless.  The purpose of free speech is to protect the often unpopular, viewpoints from being overruled by the majority, or by our own government.  While we cannot scream “fire!!” in the middle of a movie theater endangering public safety, the minority or unpopular opinions regardless of the form they take must be heard as they may shape political and social outcomes in the long run.

In other words, the First Amendment isn’t there to protect flowery speech upon which there is no disagreement, but that speech which offends and defines the very debates that shape not just our time, but also future times to come.

Everytown for Gun Safety: Spreading More Lies

Everytown for Gun Safety, Everytown.org, is out there…er, out there deliberately misrepresenting the facts again… i.e. LYING!

This time it’s about the pending legislation that would remove firearm suppressors from the same classification as machine guns and other classes of devices under the National Firearms Act (NFA). Most people more commonly refer to these devices as “silencers”. The only knowledge most people have about this subject has been gleaned from popular culture through the media. And, like Everytown, reality doesn’t apply. Allow me to dissect and CORRECT Everytown’s ignorance and misrepresentations.

Take this from their Chief Researcher, Paul Joseph Goebbels…er, “Research Division.” “…radical legislation would repeal all federal laws on firearm silencers, making it legal for convicted felons, domestic abusers, and other people with dangerous histories to buy silencers.

This is a flat-out LIE. Not ignorance, just a BIG FAT Lie. The delisting of suppressors would result in these devices being treated the SAME as a firearm. And unlike buying a firearm, the hurdles are much higher and much more expensive to purchase a suppressor. So, no, it would NOT make it legal for people who are prohibited from purchasing a firearm to purchase or possess a suppressor, apparently, an inconvenient “truth.”

They continue by stating that “The federal laws have kept silencers out of the hands of criminals for decades, without blocking access to law—abiding citizens.” Uh, Yeah…right. Correct only if criminals go to a Class III firearms Dealer, spends hundreds or thousands of dollars to purchase a suppressor that they can’t remove from the Dealer’s shop until said criminal fills out a bunch of paperwork, passes a Background Check, and provide a Passport photo. Not done yet! Then, there’s the $200 check made out to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms for the “Tax Stamp”. Then the paperwork and money, are sent to the BATF! Then, we wait and wait and wait and wait some more. Somewhere between 4 and 9 months later, the purchaser receives a letter from BATF saying “okay” or “no-go.” Obviously, this efficient process doesn’t cause any undue burden on “law-abiding citizens.”

According to EVERYTOWN’s crack researchers, “…silencers are not the most effective or the safest way to do so. Widely available ear protection products work better than silencers to protect hearing and safety — which is why the U.S. military relies on them, not on silencers, to protect soldiers’ hearing.” I wonder how much they pay their “researchers” for inaccurate “research?” Inside the ear canal “ear plugs” are never adequate hearing protection for one’s hearing. Virtually every package of ear plugs states that ear muffs should ALSO be used in conjunction with the ear plugs. And there are, in fact, times when normal hearing protection techniques are dangerous to the shooter hunter or military personnel. Hunting season can be dangerous and in a wood full of hunters one requires all of his senses, especially his hearing. Same issue in the military. With communication being the most important asset on the battlefield and with the myriad of communication devices being used, ear plugs don’t fit into the equation, as a U.S. Army veteran myself, I can attest to the fact that suppressors are STANDARD issue to all sniper teams. Apparently, EVERYTOWN’s researchers are not military combat veterans nor hunters. Next Lie-

Silencers in the wrong hands create serious public safety risks.

  • The loud and distinctive noise that a gun makes is one of its most important safety features: when people hear it, they realize they may need to run, hide, or protect others.
  • In mass shootings, being able to hear and identify the gunshots can mean the difference between life and death.”

The first point from my point of view as a former law enforcement officer is total B.S. The general public can’t tell a car back-fire from a firecracker or an actual gunfire. Experience and testimony from individuals involved in a public shooting often say they heard a “bang” and thought it was a firecracker or they didn’t realize it was gunfire until later or when they see someone on the ground or actually see the gunman.  As far as “no one “heard the gunshot(s)”, suppressors only suppress a few decibels. The suppressor is only half of the equation. In order to get the full benefit “sub-sonic” ammunition which is not only difficult to find, most often, it must be ordered. And, sub-sonic ammunition is VERY expensive for your “law-abiding” citizen. I’ve never seen nor heard or ANY average dirtbag criminal going through the bureaucratic and expense of obtaining and using a suppressor in a mass shooting…ever. In reference to their second point, reread this paragraph.

The brain surgeons in research offer more words of “wisdom.” They state that…

The SHUSH Act would make it harder for law enforcement to solve crimes.

Under the bill, the Justice Department would be forced to destroy existing records that can help law enforcement officers solve gun crimes, catch dangerous criminals, and protect communities.”

This completely ludicrous since suppressors offer NO forensic value at all in a death investigation. Suppressors are nothing more than a smaller version of a car muffler that fits on the end of the gun. A bullet fired from a suppressed weapon NEVER touches the inside of a suppressor, therefore it offers NOTHING to any ballistic examination. As stated previously, criminals can’t purchase suppressors, it’s difficult enough for EVERYTOWN’s “law-abiding” citizens.

And, One More Lie from your friendly Anti-gun group EVERYTOWN…

The SHUSH Act would block states from enforcing their own laws regarding silencers.

Under the legislation, state and local policymakers who have carefully crafted their own laws to keep silencers out of the wrong hands would be blocked from enforcing many of those protections, and from making new ones.”

Completely UNTRUE…Who would’ve seen that one coming? Removal of suppressors from the NFA list would have NO effect on existing State laws. In the handful of States where suppressors are illegal to possess, laws would NOT change due to a change in federal law. However, law makers and the citizens of those states could change said laws if deemed appropriate for them through their legislative process.

I know that I left out one or two other fallacious arguments (LIES) because they’re predictable and frankly, I lose more brain cells with every paragraph I read from these LIARS. I call upon everyone to educate themselves on the subject of suppressors. Visit YOUTUBE, there, you will learn all you need to know. Don’t allow organizations like EVERYTOWN to shovel their sh*t.

Lest We Forget

Well, it’s Friday. It’s the beginning of the Memorial Day weekend. “Memorial Day.” Do the American people understand its significance? Do we have an understanding of its origins? My words pale in comparison to the words of a Gold Star Mother…

“Every April, tension builds inside my heart anticipating the upcoming holidays. Mothers Day, May 10. Bam! A reminder that my precious 29-year-old firstborn is gone far too soon. Memorial Day, May 25. Whap! A reminder of how my beloved son was killed. Father’s Day, June 21. Bam! Another punch in the gut. July 4. Boom! Oh say can you see, by the dawn’s early light, my son died for others’ freedom to fight or to do in their own eyes whatever is right. The first time I heard The Star Spangled Banner after Kristoffer was killed, like a piercing wail of death, our national anthem doubled me over in pain, enraging me to my core. Now when I hear the tune or the words, the mourning song of my heart streams liquid down my cheeks.”

Too many people think that Memorial Day is just one of our coveted holidays away from work. It’s a day that brings families together for cookouts, fireworks, and parades. But, even standing roadside watching the ranks of camouflage Heroes march by,  drive by and pass by riding motorized wheelchairs, many fail to grasp the sacrifices this special group of Men and Woman had to endure in the name of America.

Over 1,000,000,000 Americans were wounded or killed and over 30,000 missing in WWII ALONE. And, WWII veterans are dying at a rate of about 5,000 per year. In fact, since the beginning of Our great nation to the most recent action in Yemen, over 1.5 MILLION Americans gave up their lives, another 1.8 Million suffered life altering wounds and another 41,000 are missing presumed dead. The blood of these American Heroes guaranteed Our future would be safe from the horrors other peoples suffered and are currently suffering around the world.

Once upon a time as a child, I didn’t fully grasp the suffering, the struggle and the deeper meaning of Memorial Day. My time in the U.S. Army changed that. At the time of my enlistment, I still didn’t understand the significance of my decision. However, as any Veteran will tell you, their sacrifice, the sacrifice of the service member’s family is fully realized quickly. So, in the words of the Gold Star Mom quoted above,

Don’t you get it? People died for you and for the freedoms you take for granted.”

Try to remember this while you enjoy your Memorial Day BBQ with friends and family.

Time for a National Purge of Our Educational Institutions

Just when you thought the “educational” system in Our country couldn’t be worse, it continues to surprise. As angry as I get at these spoiled little brats, who still suck off the teats of their parents, have ZERO ambitions other than the “revolution” (whatever that entails), I know that to some extent it’s not ALL their fault.

I’m pissed and have reached my limits. I’m tired of those assholes in academia pushing…no, Force-Feeding an anti-American agenda down the throats of Our children who don’t have the knowledge nor the experience push back. The parent(s) don’t push back because they are not aware of what goes on their kids’ school room. They fail to realize that “teachers” are people too. They have their own prejudices and agendas. And, that they quite often incorporate these biases into their everyday lives to include the classroom.

I’ve noticed a disturbing trend. This programming of our kids has become exponentially worse over the last 15 years or so. In past years, one would occasionally read or watch a news story about that one college professor out there in crazy land attempting to indoctrinate our kids in the way of socialism. Now, the crazy ones are the ones who still espouse the virtue of American exceptionalism.

With the advent of social justice, this “Grand Experiment” called America is in serious danger of forever being degraded into another third world country only with better tech, beer, and dancing with the stars.

I’ve spent the last week reflecting on the last eight years under President Obama. For eight years I’ve watched society regress fifty years with regards to race relations. Frankly, I long for the good ol’ days of the KKK yearly march of ignorance or the stupidity and dangerousness of groups like Nation of Islam, or the annual Al Sharpton show of Blame Whitey (for Everything).

Over the last eight years, we have reached the point of continuous outrages from the left. The manufactured lies of injustice and continued exploitation at the hands of white people. Now we have BLM (Black Lives Matter), the New Black Panthers and others who want to blame whites for every woe they suffer. Which brings me to University of Hawaii mathematics professor Piper Harron.

Harron has a deeply ingrained hatred for white people.  In a recent hit piece titled, “Get Out The Way” (Posted on the blog site belonging to and endorsed by, the American Mathematical Society http://blogs.ams.org/inclusionexclusion/2017/05/11/get-out-the-way/), she pulls no punches with her opinion regarding White (cis) Americans. Take the following.

“Not to alarm you, but I probably want you to quit your job, or at least take a demotion. Statistically speaking, you are probably taking up room that should go to someone else. If you are a white cis man (meaning you identify as male and you were assigned male at birth) you almost certainly should resign from your position of power.”

She continues…”Remember that you live in a world where people don’t succeed in a vacuum; most success happens on the backs of others who did not consent. You have no idea how successful you would have been if you were still you, but with an additional marginalization (not white, or not male, or not cis gender, or with a disability, etc).”

The bottom line is that if you’re  a white person, your success is not yours. No matter how hard you work, no matter the hours you, as a white person, put into achieving your individual success, you have victimized a person of color…er, “marginalized person” along the way. However, she has no issue stepping all over your life or your Rights in order to achieve the lefts/communists/socialists goals. The following is her message to her white colleagues in academia…

“Well, as a first step, at least get off your hiring committee, your curriculum committee, and make sure you’re replaced by a woman of color or trans person.”

She ends her blog piece with…”This is not about shame or guilt. Those things are useless. This is about shifting perspective. I know you’re not going to quit your job, but I want you to understand that you should. And to understand that by keeping your job and your other unearned privileges, you are running a continued debt to marginalized people and you should always be seeking ways to pay us back.”

Pay who back for what? Of course, the “marginalized” that she speaks of, is code for Black people. This comment is right up there with another race baiter who states that white people should open a separate bank account and deposit portions of their hard-earned income for the express purpose of reparations. That those monies should be “given” to people of color to begin to pay for our (white) privilege.  


Looking at the Above table, exactly where is the “white privilege?” Yes, the poverty rates for whites is the lowest at 9.1% compared to blacks at 24.1%. However, this is based on population percentages. If you look at the actual number of White Americans in poverty, they far outnumber every other race (They won by popular vote…Hillary?). In fact, the number is actually higher since “HISPANIC IS A CULTURE, NOT A RACE!” If you’re Hispanic of European descent, you are in fact a member of the white/caucasian race! This is one of the things that I really hate. How all of these special interest play with definitions of words in order to push their group’s agenda. And, a large portion of America is just intellectually lazy enough to just accept the bullshit they’re being spoonfed.

It’s one thing to be an “adult” choosing to be willfully ignorant of facts and truths, however, it’s another thing to brainwash Our kids. Kids will observe and soak up everything they see and hear (I really need to watch my language around the three-year-old). For example, we also have an eight-year-old at home. Not a week goes by without a comment about the Evil President Trump from him. It’s one thing to educate your kid, to raise him/her to be a decent human being and productive citizen. You hope they grow up with the ability to make reasoned decisions. But, that’s not what we have now. We have publicly educated kids who have been taught to act and “think” collectively. Individualism is seen as almost…well, evil. The very freedoms in Our Constitution are seen by this current generation as something evil as well. Our Founding Fathers viewed as nothing more than evil slave owning capitalists with bad wigs.

They have virtually no ability to think beyond the next pleasurable experience. The next “need” like the new iPhone, car…etc. Just watch non-mainstream media news station (FOX News) when they interview college age kids. They’re complete morons. I dare you to go to the next big protest featuring ANTIFA…i.e. spoiled brats running amuck. They can’t even spell “critical discourse” let alone engage in it at any point.

We all rant about things that concern us. We worry about immigration, the economy, terrorism, race relations…etc. However, it all comes down to “how” we educate or allow the “state” to educate Our children. Too many “parents” are content to turn over control of our children’s minds to the “schools”.

Bottom line, compared to years ago when “educators” like professor Harron above were the exception, instructors like her are now the rule. This situation will not be corrected until we (the grown-ups with long pants) rise up within our communities and retake the reigns of educating Our children. We must demand the withholding of tax dollars to colleges and universities who refuse to educate our kids minus the political agendas. If necessary, Americans who still believe in Our Constitutional foundings must rebel against the assaults that our kids face every day. I truly believe that the majority of this country (Those who voted for President Trump) should just STOP paying taxes and/or filing returns. Just REFUSE to comply with the arbitrary whims and corruption of those we elect to office to “represent” us but, rarely do. America is a community, the foundation of which are the millions of individual families.

Hate President Trump, his cabinet picks…etc. But America has been given a gift. When you are offered a school choice voucher, take it and choose wisely. The future of YOUR country is riding on the choices we make today.

Diversity and Multiculturalism: The Killing of America


“Our military force’s diversity is its greatest strength. The Army Secretary must show genuine support for ALL of our men & women in uniform.” – Sen. Elizabeth Warren

“How can you govern a country which has 246 varieties of cheese?”

― Charles de Gaulle

Diversity used to have a positive connotation. However now, because of the democratic/liberal/socialist influences in our country, especially since the latter half of the twentieth century, has become a net negative. Often married to the term Multiculturalism.

We have seen this before. The Roman Empire. The ever increasing taxes, unfettered immigration, outsourcing of jobs, governmental corruption, the intentional ignoring and avoidance of opinion by the governed, I could go on and on.

Diversity and multiculturalism are NOT a net positive to a nation, assimilation is. Assimilation is the absorption and integration of people, ideas, or culture into a wider society or culture, is the glue that held America together in the past. During the last century, millions of people came to America. They brought not only their dreams, they also brought their own belief systems and their cultures. One has only to look at the City of New York during this period. There was the Chinese, Irish, Italian, et. al. living in distinct sections or neighborhoods within the city.

They all had their distinct culture and rules that governed their daily lives. However, unlike today, they assimilated to the American culture. They did fight against it not demand that American culture bend to their cultural way of life. These old world immigrants and people from non-European nations desired to become successful. They worked through extreme daily hardships to find work, raise their families and to become Americans. And, they found ways to maintain their cultural foundations all the while striving to become American citizens and embracing American culture. They opened churches, businesses and bought homes. They contributed to the American way of life in every possible way.

Contrast this with what has been happening in our country for the last 40 years. Massive illegal “immigration” ( I describe it, I believe more accurately as “INVASION”) by those with no desire to assimilate to the traditional American culture. They have mostly come for economic reasons, however now, we also have more nefarious motivations. Not only do we have people here illegally draining our institutions of healthcare, education, and employment, they come here in their bid to destroy our nation from within in their bid for world domination under Islam.

In the last century, these people described themselves as Americans first and foremost. Fast forward to the day and we have more hyphenated Americans than we ever had in the past. And, unlike the past, we have not only divided ourselves from each other by culture but by race as well. We have taken heritage celebration months ( A terrible idea by any measure ) into competitions of why “we’re so wonderful,” and “White” people are so…insert any negative word or phrase here…” Just toss the idea of a “White Heritage Month” out into any public arena.

The need for racial victimhood has become so ingrained in American society, that one cannot avoid the subject of race for one day. Since the day President Obama announced his intent to run for office, to the day he left, race relations in this country have degraded to the attitudes common in the first half of this country’s existence.

Every day the average person is deluged with race issues. We’ve now highlight race with almost everything. The Mainstream Media is particularly guilty in this arena. Television, news print, and other media with a liberal bias have done nothing to de-escalate racial tensions. The bias is so blatant as to be absurd. Take police shootings. How many times have you heard or read about a police shooting where the police officer was “white” and the “victim” (God forbid a term like a robber, shooter…etc ), be referred to as shooter, robber or just plain “suspect?” Almost never happens. You don’t hear that a white police officer shot a “white” man or woman. However, you will hear “Black, Asian, Hispanic…etc” (Hispanic is a CULTURE, NOT a race. Not that the media or race baiters make that distinction).

Those on the political left, love to use cutesy phrases in order to push their multifaceted agendas. One that is frequently encountered is:

Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White

The left makes the claim this phrase is used by paranoid white supremacy folks as justification for racist behavior. Are there white racists? Of course. However, unlike some minority groups in this country, there are no White Supremacy groups in positions of political power ( Hello, Congressional Black Caucus….). Here is a list of a few of these groups that have influence in American society:

  • National Action Network.
  • National Afro-American League.
  • National Alliance of Black School Educators.
  • National Black Justice Coalition.
  • National Council of Negro Women.
  • National Equal Rights League.
  • National Ex-Slave Mutual Relief, Bounty, and Pension Association.
  • National Negro Business League.

I wonder how many Americans of Irish descent (original slaves and indentured servants) are represented by the above listed National Ex-Slave Mutual Relief, Bounty and Pension Association? And to be “inclusive” and in the name of Fairness and Diversity, Virtually every race and some cultural organizations, have social and political groups to represent its viewpoints and opinions…Unless you’re white.

I fear that the America where everyone was first and foremost an American, is dead. We have too many competing interests from too many selfish and self-indulgent assholes who are American by legal definition only and not in their hearts. They are leeches on America and whose only interest is, “what’s in for me and mine” instead of what’s best for America as a whole. Diversity and multiculturalism, in and of themselves, are benign terms, until you mix those terms with politics and politicians. Racism of all flavors particularly white supremacy will continue to flourish as long as any government or agency thereof not only shows a preference for but endorsing those policies for non-white people.

MSM and ALT-Left’s Attempt to Define Policing

“…Media coverage of police brutality and abuses of power is especially important under President Trump. In April, Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a memorandum to “cut back on federal oversight of local law enforcement,” USA Today reported. In the memo, Sessions wrote, “It is not the responsibility of the federal government to manage nonfederal law enforcement agencies.” As The Atlantic wrote, “When local governments violate the basic constitutional rights of citizens, Americans are supposed to be able to look to the federal government to protect those rights. Sessions have made clear that when it comes to police abuses, they’re now on their own.”

“With Sessions reducing federal oversight on local law enforcement, the press is one of the most prominent institutions left to hold police accountable for bad behavior. This new reality is worrisome, to say the least, as media outlets have repeatedly criminalized black and other non-white victims of police violence. Additionally, conservative media have repeatedly portrayed advocates calling for reforms to curb police brutality, including Black Lives Matteras criminals and terrorists. The lack of coverage cable news devoted to Edwards’ death shows that, so far, media haven’t stepped up to the plate.” -mediamatters.org

And the media propaganda machine continues to spew its lies. Take for example the quote from A.G. Sessions to: “cut back on federal oversight of local law enforcement,” and “It is not the responsibility of the federal government to manage nonfederal law enforcement agencies.” Every citizen (every Natural Born or otherwise Legal citizen) should be applauding this return to Constitutional Rule of Law as enshrined by Our Founding Fathers. Having worked myself in law enforcement from the local to the federal level, I almost cried with joy knowing that the grownups in long pants were now taking control of the reigns in D.C.

Indeed, it is not the job of the federal government, specifically the Justice Department to “oversee” Local, County or State law enforcement agencies. The proper role of the Justice Department is to use its discretion to investigate possible violations of federal law by agencies charged with policing their communities. Specifically, the violation(s) of individual Rights guaranteed under the Constitution and specific federal laws and relevant federal court rulings. If one’s Right(s) is violated by a police officer or other law enforcement entity under “Color of Law,” that’s when the federal government has an obligation to investigate and act if necessary. And, may determine that oversight of an agency is needed only in the most extreme cases and for only as long as it takes to correct the situation. The LAST thing this country needs is a national police force. The only non-harmful thing that would accomplish is to put officers in the same uniforms making us all look alike.

No state, hell, no local community has the same practices when it comes to policing. Yes, they all fall under the same federal laws and the same Constitution, however, each jurisdiction has its own “flavoring” according to geographical local and the culture of each community they serve. For example: Although law enforcement agencies use the same Use of Force continuum as prescribed by the Justice Department. It GUIDES their policies of how force may be used against a person. However, many agencies add additional guidance to their policies in order to add additional protections for their citizenry and the officers. To state…” Sessions have made clear that when it comes to police abuses, they’re (the people of America ) now on their own.” This total Liberal bullshit at worst and extreme hyperbole at best.

The next “worrisome” claim is that…” This new reality is worrisome, to say the least, as media outlets have repeatedly criminalized black and other non-white victims of police violence.” Whoa, what?! They actually mean CONSERVATIVE media. Why is it that the claim that some “victim” of police brutality was an innocent, a good church-going boy, a scholar, a great high school football player, anything but the thug that he was, replete with a criminal record six pages long? Why is it that media outlets publish or broadcast statements like…”A black man was shot by a White police officer today in….” The media is complicit in pushing a politically correct narrative, they conspire with families and local community “leaders” in not just words. For example, a 6’ 2” 220lb individual, with a criminal record, attacks a police officer and ends up being shot and dies. Instead of objectively reporting the news with actual facts, they show pictures (provided by the family of the perp) of said perp at the age of 14 in a football uniform. The Liberal media is actively driving the liberal agenda. The liberal mantra that anytime police do their job, is racist if the bad guy is a “person of color.”

So, when conservative media outlets, bloggers and the like report the truth, they are targeted. Accused of being a part of and complicit in systemic racism. BLM, New Black Panther Party, ANTIFA, et. al. are in FACT terrorist organizations. The politicians are either too afraid to say it or are conspiring with the media, the progressive movement and “community leaders” to decrease law and order and perpetuate the victim mentality. To say the “media haven’t stepped up to the plate,” is a joke, especially since they run the entire kitchen that is network television.

Reason And Force

Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: Reason and Force.

If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that’s it.

In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force.

The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.

There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. These are the people who think that we’d be more civilized if all guns were removed from society because a firearm makes it easier for an [armed] mugger to do his job. That, of course, is only true if the mugger’s potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat–it has no validity when most of a mugger’s potential marks are armed.

People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that’s the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.

Then there’s the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser.

People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don’t constitute lethal force watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level.

The gun is the only weapon that’s as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weight lifter. It simply wouldn’t work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn’t both lethal and easily employable.

When I carry a gun, I don’t do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I’m looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don’t carry it because I’m afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn’t limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation… and that’s why carrying a gun is a civilized act.
