Terrorism should be defeated with love...and superior firepower...- Terry Ingle
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." --Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

"Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society."

One more on guns...

This has been around a while, but my buddy Bill sent it to me and I read it again. It's good stuff. Pay particular attention to the last paragraph. Very well written and very well stated. TI

"The Gun Is Civilization" by Maj. L. Caudill USMC (Ret)

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 a [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.

Best biker joke EVER!

A tough looking biker was riding his Harley when he sees a pretty girl about to jump off a bridge so he stops.

"What are you doing?" he asks.

"I'm going to commit suicide," she says.

While he did not want to appear insensitive, he didn't want to miss an
opportunity, so he asked "Well, before you jump, why don't you give me a kiss?"

So, she does.

After she's finished, the biker says, "Wow! That was the best kiss I have ever had. That's a real talent you are wasting. You could be famous. Why are you committing suicide?"

"My parents don't like me dressing up like a girl......"

Here we go again...

On and on...

"The NRA should change their name to the Assassin's Lobby, because that's what they are," Bill Maher

"Whether or not there's some measure there in terms of limiting the size of the magazine that you can buy to go with a semiautomatic weapon — we’ve had that in place before. Maybe it’s appropriate to re-establish that kind of thing, but I think you do have to be careful obviously," -Dick Cheney

"Hate speech and madness were part of the[the Tucson shooting] mix, but it was the gun and our insane gun laws that resulted in six deaths. Until we come to grips with that, as a nation, we remain armed and dangerous." -RICHARD COHEN, The Washington Post

"Yes, I expect to go forward [with new gun control legislation], and it's not a disagreement I have with many people in the Republican Party," -GOP leader, Richard King

"The assassination attempt on a U.S. congresswoman underscores the need for tougher gun control laws." -Philadelphia Tribune Editorial

...and on it goes.

Never let a good tragety go to waste. As can be expected, the Libs are attempting to use the senseless shootings in Arizona to make some political hay. First it was the "hatespeach" that they railed hatefully about and now as predicted it is a new try for gun control.
As anyone who knows the liberal mind can tell you logic and common sense do not prevail in their warped reasoning. It is all about emotion and "feelings...nothing more than feelings..."

Rather than reiterate the same old tired arguments for and against restricting our 2nd amendment rights, I'll just cut to the chase:

According to the FBI, the number of violent crimes of all types declined in 2009 by 5.3 percent and property crimes declined 4.6 percent. In fact, the rate of violent crime declined 6.1 percent below 2008 figures.

On the flip side, according to data from the FBI’s National Instant Background Check System (NICS), 2009 was the best year on record for gun sales. 14 million guns were sold in 2009, the biggest year since the system began recording data in 1998.

OK, now why is that??? Well, I'll tell you. Right after Bammer and his henchmen took over in '09 I worked part time for a local gun dealer for a while because they could NOT keep up with the amount of customers wanting to by guns after the elections.

Now wouldn't you think that people would be thinking,"Hmmm, these idiots that just came into power don't like me as a gun owner and they REALLY don't like my guns so...maybe since they will possibly be trying to take them away anyway I guess I'd better not buy any more."

I don't think so... actually what they were thinking was two-fold. One thought was,"I'd better get this AR-15 now while it's still 900 bucks and available so I can resell it later for 2000 bucks when we can't get them anymore." And the most prevalent thought was,"I'm going to buy this NOW while it's still available so that I can defend myself and my family after they turn me into an outlaw, because if they think that I'm going to turn this in just because they passed an unconstitutional law, they can kiss my ass."

Ya know...that's just the way Patriots think. I know, because I'm one. TI

Ummm...What am I missing here???

Bammer spouted his support for abortion rights yesterday in a speech celebrating the 38th anniversary of the Supreme Court's pro-death decision in Roe v. Wade.

Unbelievably, this is what he said:
"Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women's health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters."

OK...Since when is he concerned about government interference in ANYTHING??? These libs live and breathe hypocrisy and the double standard. They think nothing of interfering in our health care, private businesses, inheritances, investments, incomes, and on and on and on...

These people only espouse human rights when it suits THEM. They don't give a rat's ass when women in Arab countries are being abused and killed because of Sharia law. They couldn't care less about rampant child prostitution in places like India and Africa. Hardly a word was spoken to Hu during his latest visit about all of the Christians and freedom fighters who are locked up in prison camps in China. And most of all they have NEVER cared about the millions of children who have been slaughtered in this country whose only crime was being unwanted and not yet born.

I open the paper daily and there are numerous ads being placed by childless couples begging for babies to raise. Finding homes for these kids is not a problem. The real problem is selfishness and the ready access to a convieniant way to just kill the child and be done with it.

This president and those that think like him make me sick. TI

Blast from the past...

My buddy Mark sent this to me. This is from 1951 and this guy is really good. His name was Larry Griswold and he was the world's greatest comedy diver and co-inventor of the trampoline.
This is when comedy was clean AND funny...I figured we could use a laugh.
