Phobia and fear...

This is promted by Sean over at

Guns are a Rorschach test.

As one that doesn't fear firearms its interesting that I do respect them. What does that mean...

Well I've also got a healthy respect for the chainsaw, I even use them.  That said I handle it with great care as I'e seen what can happen and its very bloody.   So yes, a tool deserves respect.  I also understand how it works so I can use it carefully and efficiently.  After all nothing makes short work of trees and logs better.  I build and do things with them,  recreation, fun even!

With that said I've seen people use chainsaws with the chain brake wired back and carried by the handle with fingers on the throttle and all my hairs stand up as I know it can do a lot of damage.

That's healthy fear.  It can hurt me or my workmate if I am careless or they are.

A gun is no different.

Unhealthy fear is ban all those chainsaws, the blood!.  Never touch one as it may start and slice me up.  When it get to that level the term phobia is warranted.

So we have guns a very useful tool as well. I have used them for all lawful purposes over the years.  I treat them with respect, not fear.

Yet we see unhealthy fear.

Those that say guns are bad, guns kill, guns are the root of crime, they are truly past fear.  If it were fear it can be corrected or moderated with education, training, and experience.  However the concept of touching a gun as something to never be done is phobic.  Its irrational for fear a  device or a tool that left alone or handled properly is inert. Those that do not even want to read the truth or fact are phobic.  See to even lean about it means they could use it and fear happens.

We also have those that claim to hate guns and take them to congress and political places to show off how evil they are.  This is a very special thing as its no longer phobia and we should watch them very closely for signs of sociopathic need for power and control.

We sometimes call them gun grabbers and that is a misnomer as their phobia would not allow them to touch a firearm.  For that they rely on  those dark people with no fears to do their bidding.  Such as it is for the gun banners.

Keep your head down and powder dry.

All Hail the cat! Aye!

We call them companion animals.

However in my life this one was an extra special guy.

To me he was a friend.  He waited for me and would lay next to me or on me.

We called him Boo...  He was a Maine Coon Cat, strong as an ox, yet never scratched me in fear. A true gentle giant.  He prowled the house, his domain, the empire, one we gladly shared.

Today at a ripe age of over twenty and some, and with us for more than eighteen, it was time.

Cancer, the evil taker had done its damage and he was unable to be a cat.  To the very end he was aware and with us as his friends.

Forever is never enough.

Goodbye dear Boo.  You will be missed.

Its 9/11 again

12 years, have we really learned?

I say that with a hard realization that many thousands of people died that day so dasgov could go nutzingfutz and get a power trip on.

Those people will not recognize how we are now.   I'm not sure I do either.

So I'll only say good words for the dead.

... and resist walking around with a 1000 yard stare making sheep like noises.

The good new is the people that did this and instigated it are dead and hopefull in their own private hell.

The rest of us are or at least a few are waking up to dasgov growing like black mold in a bathroom all toxic and nasty.

Grieve for the living as the dead are now beyond their cares.

Heads down, it many not be safe out there.

Assholes, both of them...

two assholes meet on a path both bent on some ritual of respect.

Who won?

Certainly not Zimmerman.  How about Martin?  Neither of them.

It makes little sense to get on either side because it was race.  It was about to assholes that didn't have sense or maturity enough to back away.

So the strong younger attacks the older for some perceived diss, the older is a ball of flab with a gun.  So how does it end?   Either way its already bad and neither wanted to have it this way but both pursued the course they took.  In the end one or the other was going to get seriously hurt or dead,  and did.  Both had a chance to disengage neither didn't.

It might have been a knife, stone, or choking, maybe a cerebral hemorrhage.  Girls and boys it was about violence by and between both of them.  Next time you cut someone off and they flip you the finger, think about those two assholes.  Think hard about which one your playing.

The law only deals with questions of was it murder or some assault.  Facts seem to indicate that either way one of them, if death didn't happen, would likely have done time minimally for assault.

So yes I hold the most unpopular position.  The law is right.  One of two assholes lost the fight and the other will have vengeance applied because those that disagree have the same asshole violence thing going.

If you think either is right and your angry and thinking violence...  Remember you too can be in a fight and win or loose you are not going to like the result.  You had a chance to walk away and didn't.  It was never your fight.

NSA data mining.

While for one second I do not believe those guys haven't lied more than a lot I do believe they did collect said metadata.  Likely their half truths of thwarting terrorist enterprise is bogus.

We do know since Hoover that internal data collection is the rule not the exception.  Files and lists all secret.


That information could also be used to solve the age old problem of the pisshats that subvert the do not call lists

Just this FOIA the data, check for sites that originate many calls to more than one number often twice and then compare the numbers called to any of the do not call registries. Find out who called and start issuing fines.    There are people that would call that a good thing.  Likely the Rethugs would have a bird fit.   The ensuing battle would be worth a seat.   After all the statists would want that control and the other would claim undue restraint on free enterprise.

Fun to speculate.

In the mean time keep stuff dry, cranium down, and check your six.

Memorial Day

It is the day we remember our dead.

It's the weekend of car sales, furniture sales, the first big barbecue weekend.

And we forgot why they died.

They died to protect us.  They died to preserve.  They died.

In all the wars of this country the one thing remains, they died so we could live
the way or founders believed we should, as a free people.

Consider that.

Orders from Der Prince

Yes, SnowMAgedden really!

Check this...

BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has declared a state of emergency for blizzard that could bring near 3 feet of snow.

Right here...

The penalty for not paying attention to their authority is up to $500 and a year in jail.    Extreme, yes?

While I agree its possibly one Wicked bad Stawm, there are people that MUST appear at work that are not police or other "emergency service".

So we have Der Prince and possible future elect issuing emergency laws that sound just a bit over the top. So whats to stop him from doing who knows what?

Hey, it's a seriously bad storm and plan accordingly to protect your home and families. Stay safe.

LArge Black Assault Dogs

Over at Straight Forward in a Crooked World there is a stunning example of Evil Black Rifle ban.

Now mind you we don't have wolves her in eastern MA that I know of but, Foxes, Bobcat, Coyote
and a wide assortment of other predators have been seen by me locally, even on my residential property.  We even had a Bobcat attack west of here.  So ponder that.

Keep your varmints at more than arms reach.

Day of the jackpot

NY is one of the first major signs of what I'll call the coming of the jackpot.    If we continue down that path I foresee a very dystopic future not far ahead. The other major sign is those that would based on unsubstantiated belief, false facts, myth and feelings will dominate.  Dear fuzzy one, we are seriously devolving.

Keep what powder you have dry,

Constitutional Law and why they are

A little bit of history..

We are the United States of America though a revolution where the King of England treated us (the colonies) as less worthy subjects and went as far as to mistreat us.  We didn't like it and one day in April we said enough....

Fast forward a few years the result is we are have now acquired sovereignty as a Country. We codified it in the Constitution Of the United States but, before the states would sign up they wanted a few safe guards. So we have the The Bill of Rights.

The key paragraph that is all to often not quoted is:

Item 1:

THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.

In short we never want this kind of thing again and this is how we plan to have law to prevent it.  The first 10 amendments spell out prohibited acts of the government.

I will skip the First Amendment as it allows me to write this even of you don't agree.

Item 2:  Amendment II

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

The first item calls out why this set of Amendments were important, namely and I quote as key phrase, " in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers,".  This is about the government in modern terms of going off the rails.

The single sentence in item 2 is a clear statement blocking the government from removing the means to insure the people can and will remain in control of their rights and property.  In short the government is the subjugated not the the people.

Why is the second amendment so strongly worded.  Its the enabler to the prohibitions of other acts a government may partake.  Freedom of speech, right to property, protection against illegal search, and a host of other things that were grievances against King George, and many other despotic regimes that would emerge after him over the course of history.

With that I offer two views of why this is important.

Marko lays out why the threat of force has no place in a society where it has the force to repulse that threat.  I offer, his work,  why the gun is civilization,

The followup is some very sobering thoughts from Dean Garrison if they come for your guns do you have a responsibility to fight .   I do believe we have the responsibility to fight the attempt to even go that far with letters and phone calls to those people we call our representatives.    Even the great people that wrote the Constitution petitioned King George with their grievances before firing the shot heard round the world.  We should honor them by doing no less.

Take care and keep your powder dry.
