  • How did we ever survive . . . ?

    How did we ever survive with such death machines available to the general public through the mail, with the only paperwork involved being the sales slip?

    Why were there no rivers of blood and gore flowing through the streets on a daily basis?

    Up until 1934, subguns could be purchased without any mandatory paperwork from any level of government – no required background checks, no mandatory fingerprinting or photographs, no 200 transfer tax, no requirement that you get your police chief or sheriff to sign off on your purchase.

    In fact, the STEN gun advertised in the picture was made AFTER the National Firearms Act of 1934 had been passed and signed into “law” – the STEN was first developed in 1941, as World War II was getting started. You see, the Brits had dumped truckloads of military-pattern rifles and subguns into the North Sea after WWI, rather than let their private citizens have them. The fact that quite a few weapons had to be left behind during the Dunkirk evacuation compounded the matter.

    In this case, Cadmus Industries’ advert uses the phrases “airdropped to Maquis” and “used in ill-fated Rommel HQ raid.”

    And after the War, plenty of American soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines brought weapons home in their duffel bags – not only war prizes such as specimens of the MG 42, FG 42, MG 34, Luger, MP 40, StG 44, Nambu pistol, etc., but they also brought home American and Allied weapons such as BREN guns, M1 rifles, M1 carbines and Browning Automatic rifles. Quite a few of those returning service members didn’t bother to fill out any NFA paperwork, and quite properly so – the federal rules requiring such paperwork are quasi-Constitutional at best in the letter of the Constitution, the Declaration and the Bull of Rights. Where the spirit of the Founding Documents is concerned, the NFA-1934 is flat-out ANTI–Constitutional.

    Yet there didn’t seem to be many if any “active shooter” type of spree killers, of the kinds we saw at Virginia Tech, Fort Hood, Sandy Hook Elementary, Columbine High School, etc. Never mind that all of those locations had been legislatively designated as “gun free zones” since 1990 (thank you, (REPUBLICAN) George H. W. Bush!) where no one but law-enforcement personnel are permitted to carry weapons.

  • I Am “The Antichrist” ?

    Here I thought I was a nice guy. Now apparently I’m the “Anti-Christ.” See for yourself.

    This particular “test” might be a bit on the faulty side – isn’t the Anti-Christ supposed to be irresistibly charismatic, thus accruing piles and piles of cash, having plenty of women seeking his attentions, those sorts of things?

    I’m waiting.

    Your result for The Which Biblical Villain Are You Test . . .

    The Antichrist

    You scored 60% Pride, 63% Envy, 55% Ambition, and 40% Deceitfulness!

    You are the Antichrist, a member of the unholy trinity along with The False Prophet and Satan. In the Bible you are described as the beast with seven heads and ten horns. You have the appearance of a leopard, with the feet of a bear and the mouth of a lion (you figure out the symbolism). You are an ambitious individual who is bent on world domination and it is prophesied that you will achieve this goal. You will eventually set up a mighty empire, the greatest empire that the world has ever seen. This empire will be in opposition to God and God’s chosen people (the Jews). Essentially, you will be like a Hitler who actually succeeds, for a time at least. Indeed, you have a lot of other Hitler-like qualities. You are a very prideful person and this probably stems from the fact that you possess real advantages over most other people. You have what it takes to get to the top and the drive to get there. You also possess Hitler’s potential for cruelty. You enjoy watching others suffer, especially your enemies. This is because you view life as a competition. May the strong survive and may they stand proudly on top of the bones of their vanquished foes! Finally, you are very direct with your enemies and friends alike. You feel that it’s good to make your intents known to other people. Some may argue that Hitler was deceptive, but he really wasn’t. If people just read his book, they would have known his ultimate goals and how he felt about the people who stood in opposition to these goals.

    Your Analysis (Vertical line = Average)

    Pride Distribution

    You scored 60% on Pride, higher than 69% of your peers.

    Envy Distribution

    You scored 63% on Envy, higher than 80% of your peers.

    Ambition Distribution

    You scored 55% on Ambition, higher than 53% of your peers.

    Deceitfulness Distribution

    You scored 40% on Deceitfulness, higher than 25% of your peers.

  • Quote of the Day for Saturday, 24 August 2013

    “The highwayman takes solely upon himself the responsibility, danger, and crime of his own act. He does not pretend that he has any rightful claim to your money, or that he intends to use it for your own benefit. He does not pretend to be anything but a robber. He has not acquired impudence enough to profess to be merely a ‘protector,’ and that he takes men’s money against their will, merely to enable him to ‘protect’ those infatuated travellers, who feel perfectly able to protect themselves, or do not appreciate his peculiar system of protection. He is too sensible a man to make such professions as these. Furthermore, having taken your money, he leaves you, as you wish him to do. He does not persist in following you on the road, against your will; assuming to be your rightful ‘sovereign,’ on account of the ‘protection’ he affords you. He does not keep ‘protecting’ you, by commanding you to bow down and serve him; by requiring you to do this, and forbidding you to do that; by robbing you of more money as often as he finds it for his interest or pleasure to do so; and by branding you as a rebel, a traitor, and an enemy to your country, and shooting you down without mercy, if you dispute his authority, or resist his demands. He is too much of a gentleman to be guilty of such impostures, and insults, and villainies as these. In short, he does not, in addition to robbing you, attempt to make you either his dupe or his slave.”

  • From The Eye — Berry v. Heh

    Today, I received the following from those behind the Eye on Albuquerque blog in response to my piece “Walking with Richard Berry? Nope!”

    ——– Original Message ——–
    Subject:     Berry v. Heh
    Date:     Sat, 17 Aug 2013 07:52:56 -0600
    From:     The Eye on Albuquerque
    To:     Mike Blessing

    Good Morning Sir,

    We are completely disgusted with Berry. Yes, he has an “R” by his name but we all know he is the wolf in sheep clothing. He is more Obama than Nancy Pelosi.  Berry is a complete embarrassment to any Republican.

    Heh is a true conservative Republican. That is why we decided to support him.

    Dinelli is pro-abortion and pro-everything that is against moral values.

    Heh is the only choice we see in this race.  Heh does not have a big war chest of money like Berry and Dinelli.  Heh has to rely on a grassroots type campaign, social media and others getting the word out there…

    We will continue to show how corrupt Berry and ALL of his Administration is when we have proof.

    Thank you for your email.

    Respectfully,
    The Eye

    “Intellectual freedom cannot exist without political freedom; political freedom cannot exist without economic freedom; a free mind and a free market are corollaries.” – Ayn Rand

    Except when a person draws conclusions that would lead them to courses of action other supporting candidates pushed by the McCleskey Clique. Like staying home, or supporting other candidates who seem to be more supportive of things like free-market economics, individual rights, Constitutionally-limited government and public-sector fiscal restraint.

    Then that person is simply told “shut up and do as you’re told – what you do want, a Democrat in office?!”

    In the online environment, that missive is often misspelled, with many exclamation points added at the end:

    “shut up n do as ur told – wat do u want, a Democrat in office!!!!!!”

    2. August 17, Saturday. 10:00 A.M. to 12:00 noon. Walk with Mayor Richard Berry. Meet at the _____________ Ranch Community Park, _____ Universe NW – a little north of ________ Blvd NW on Universe. Look for the Berry for Mayor Signs. For a map, access http://mapq.st/xxxxxxx.

    First of all, Berry is a Keynesian – he supports big spending public works projects as a way to reward his buddies in the construction industry who donate to his political coffers. I cite the APS West Side Stadium and the proposed 50-mile bike path around the city as examples of his big-spending tendencies. Back in 2011, he pitched these with an op-ed piece in the Albuquerque Journal :

    Mayor Urging ‘Yes’ Vote on Tuesday for Bonds

    Here’s another bit about a previous version of “ABQ the PLAN” – or perhaps to be resurrected as “ABQ the PLAN II,” to be served up to us in 2014 after Berry’s re-election?

    Sports Complex, Bike Trail, Boardwalk And White-Water Park Would Go to Voters

    Yeah, that’s what we need – a white-water park. So while We The Private Citizens are directed to limit our water usage, considering that we live in a desert, it’s OK for the public sector to throw the stuff around willy-nilly?

    Remember the 50-mile bike path around the city? Yeah, that’s an absolute necessity.

    Mayor Seeks Proposals To Complete 50-Mile Bike Loop

    Remember the Paseo Project? Originally, the price tag was 46 million, now it’s up to 93 million. I know inflation is getting worse, but this is ridiculous.

    City Seeks $46 Million for Paseo, I-25 Project – Thursday, 8 December 2011

    Paseo project wins fed approvals – Tuesday, 30 April 2013

    Design team is chosen for Paseo/I-25 – Monday, 5 August 2013

    See also http://abqjournal.com/search?q=Paseo+I-25+project+93+million

    So Berry comes across as Obama with an “R” after his name. But he’s got that magic Big R, so he MUST the proper guy to support, correct?

    Walking Albuquerque’s Westside neighborhoods with the Mayor will be State Senator Sander Rue, State Representatives Tom Anderson, Paul Pacheco and Monica Youngblood, City Councilor Dan Lewis, and Bernalillo County Commissioner Lonnie Talbert.

    Paul Pacheco and Monica Youngblood were two of the eight Republicans who chose to kick gun owners around like a soccer ball when they supported HB77 in the last Legislative session.

    As with Richard Berry, they deserve to lose their re-election bids.

    Better an up-front enemy than a back-stabber professing friendship.

  • “Riding Shotgun” on YouTube

    Mood amused, bouncey, cheerful

    This is the first time I’ve ever had any sympathy for a roach. In this case, it IS warranted.

    Riding Shotgun is a short film about semi-professional assassins Doyle and Abby who embark on a brand new “hit” adventure. What should be a quick job turns into a fight for their lives when Doyle’s ill-timed bathroom break flushes their plans for easy money straight down the toilet.

    Written and Directed by Michael Davis (Shoot ‘Em Up), this film is bursting at the seams with bullets, T&A, and nonstop, double barrel action.

    Voices:

    Thanks to Seth Anderson Bailey for the tip-off !
