So how long before the democrats "ask" us "for the good of the nation" to surrender our radios, phones and other person to person communication devices?
After the guns, of course.
Are they attempting to follow Hitler's or Stalin's playbooks? Don't they know that Socialsim as we once knew it is dead? That socialism has led to economic disaster in Europe (only Germany and Scandinavia and UK are holding their own--FOR OTHER REASONS besides Socialism!!), that nazism is long-dead--and only a ridiculous and hated fringe group in the US, that the only remotely successful (both economically and otherwise) "Communist" governments left are China, Cuba, and Venezuela, and China only because it has let in some measure of Capitalism and Venezuela because it turned into a little tin horn dictatorship centered on oil like Libya and Iraq (and look how those countries are NOW!) and Cuba also became a dictatorship.
Russia is only rising again because the STUPID socialist governments in Europe disbanded and destroyed their nuclear and other power plants and are now beholden and at the MERCY of Russia for POWER??
In other words, Socialists are IDIOTS.
A least it took a tsunami for the Japanese to follow in some degree, and their good behavior and corporate love their neighbor mentality following the tsunami puts the rest of the world, including us, to shame. You would think they were the ONLY nation (besides maybe, Germany) that learned from WWII.
This is what you GET with the different brands of Socialism--NOTHING BUT A MESS. Even Finland, which used to be the top "non-corrupt" nation, has now fallen down on the list, thanks to joining the EU, which unfortunately they HAD TO, otherwise they would be at the mercy of Russia, which it looks like they will be STUCK in that position ANYWAY thanks to STUPID SOCIALIST EU policies! They should be screaming: "THANKS A LOT, BELGIUM!" Sweden, which is now dubiously called, "the no 1 uncorrupt nation", cannot be relied upon to help, either, because they didn't lift a finger to help Finland in the Winter War, as neither did the US or Britain (it wasn't because of Hitler, either, Germany only sold planes to Finland after the others turned their backs on Finland. You can't call them allies unless you could call the Americans the allies of Islam for selling weapons to the different Muslim governments, but interesting while the different sects fight one another--in my book that's nothing but "making profit from war", and you expect the Nazis would behave any differently? In a pig's eye. Russia does the same, too). One wonders how "anti-Communist" we ever were, I really think Joe McCarthey was just a laughable "straw man" the government tolerated for a time. You notice how quickly our socialist movements grew once he was out of circulation.
Socialism means nothing more than BIG GOVERNMENT, which our founding fathers claimed to be against, and that is exactly what the Dems want. Ben Carsen is right in saying that the Dems simply want to control Blacks as a voting block, but never let them rise to their level. I will take it one step further, it's just another attempt at slavery. The best example are their platitudes about education, but NEVER wanting to allow school choice for the poor person when most of the rich Democrats' kids go to top notch private schools with the best of everything, including ARMED guards, but God forbid we have THAT in public schools! And all our elected officials have armed guards themselves and even pack their own weapons but WE the voters can't in their eyes, if that is not hypocrisy, tell me WHAT is. Even Ben Carsen and the conservative blacks can tell they are being hoodwinked, why can't the rest of us? What the Dems are practicing is really almost an extension of the old slavery, only they can't practice it openly any more so they are only too happy to give them the welfare and the low economic status that most blacks THINK they want, after their family structure was totally destroyed in the sixties. In fact, it was so successful with the American black man that they have slavishly desired to have that happen to the rest of us, but they keep meeting those pesky conservatives and Christians and some Jews who recognize this social agenda for what it really is--an attempt at keeping permanent power and a level of elitism that they don't want anyone to enjoy or attain to, which is exactly what Ben Carsen is attempting to educate people on. At least he, as a top neurosurgeon, which like others to attain to his status, and sees that the current administration would rather have that status attained for their progeny and no one else's. The problem is, not every child of an elite is fit to follow their parents and that's what has the rest of us scared. When Stalin came to power and it was leaked he had been a mediocre student (as was a few other Communist and Marxist leaders), he just had those who really knew and could prove it killed, how far are our elites willing to go to maintain their status quo--or push it further?
Back to subject: You may have not heard that there are even wackos that want to remove guns from the Milwaukee police. If you are for that, don't talk to me. If even police can't carry firearms according to some idiots, then we are really nuts. The police carry firearms in the pursuit of protecting the rest of us. If that is so, then neither should the Presidents' own men have them,
but I WOULD HOPE WE WOULD NOT BE THAT STUPID!
**and I am certain, if I remember my years in Tomahawk right, most people in the outlying areas still minimally need a "varmint" gun (some type of 22 or BB gun) to deal with the small animals (especially if the gov goes through with its stupid plan on "vicious" feral cats that "eliminate whole species of birds and RODENTS--note here they do actually they feel sorry for the rats and mice) and some type of rifle or shotgun to deal with larger animals. One of my relatives from there says you still see black bears at the dump, another said wolves and coyotes are still around (heck we have coyotes and deer here so thick near not too far from Milwaukee you'd wish we had additional hunting season!)**
Besides which, the cougars are coming back. I hate to tell you folks up (more) north, they have been sighted so far as far north as Waupaca. I am not kidding you, there were at least 3-4 sighted last summer in different areas.
Unless that is one really FAST and FAR RANGING cougar!
In which case, you'd better hope the government allows you to keep your fast shooting rifle! They have been know in CA to drop down on children, bicyclists, and joggers (and most of them require reconstructive surgery afterward, if not a coffin) without even a moment's warning and for your child's sake at least, the government should allow you something to defend them!
If not from your occasional breaking and entering robber or would-be murderer, or rapist, or local "friendly" neighborhood drug dealer or their "slaves" (meaning addicts), which are far from "occasional" people you "meet" in the areas down south here.
Move down here and a car and house alarms and window locks and caller ID and cell phones become minimal REQUIRED purchases, if you have any brains at all.
