another win for the gun control crowd

gee, for about 15 minutes the MSM was all jazzed over another 50 or so kenyans getting iced at the hands of somali  ISLAMIC terrorists.  poor dudes had been sitting around swatting flies, watching world cup soccer, when al shabab terrorists rolled into the kenyan town of mpeketoni, went door to door questioning residents as to their religious beliefs, and killed men who were not muslim,  in front of their families and other town folk.

i've seen pictures like this before.

now these guys had real assault rifles, which they didn't mind using.  so i got to thinking, how come no one fought back?

so i looked up kenyan gun laws at gun policy.org. whose declared mission seems to be acting as a clearing house for researchers looking into verified stats on gun violence  prevention.  i assume that kenya gets very high marks because in kenya;  1)you have to prove a reason why you need to own a firearm, such as self defense,  (too late for the guy above).  2) the right to own a gun is not guaranteed by law. 3) private possession of semi automatic "assault weapons" is prohibited and  possession of pistols and revolvers is restricted to licenses holders.  4) you can only own the "weapons" on that government issued license and the amount of ammunition specified on your licenses.  5)  and finally, you can not carry a firearm in public, either  concealed or unconcealed.

GOD DAMN, no wonder these guys are all dead, chuck schumer and michael bloomberg apparently wrote their laws.

remember this the next time some asshole democrat gets in front of a camera and starts talking about "common sense gun control measures".


i know, you are not supposed to use a word to define itself, so save the comments about asshole democrats, i'm already there.  additionally, i'm totally comfortable posting the last picture, from the westland mall atrocity,  as the al shabab terroists responsible for both attacks told news outlets that they used "a meticulous vetting process ... to separate the Muslims from the Kuffar".

i know, it's our fault, again. we really must try harder to

the militarization of police

from what i can tell, it's been this way for a while.

i've seen much recently about how our local cops (nationwide), are too heavily armed, and a threat to all of our safety. how they are getting ready to kick in everyone's  front door, and seize our soup and nuts, guns and water, and throw us into fema concentration camps.

time to settle the fuck down AMERICA, and realize the cops are you, or your neighbor, your kids little league coach, whatever, and feels the same anger at the feds that you do.

many seem to think this is how the cops are doing their job day in and day out, for EVERYTHING. car accidents? SWAT call out. burglary report? send TAC and the armored car. dog menacing the neighbors kids? get a sniper, STAT.

looks like dave threw the snow from the sidewalk back into the street, he's truly fucked now.

pay attention to history, and you will find that AMERICAN police have generally been out gunned by the CRIMINAL element in this country.  bootleggers in the 20's had thompson sub machine guns and sem-auto pistols, while the cop on the beat carried a revolver, and maybe had access to a shotgun.  recent history shows what happens when cops show up to take over style bank robberies, armed only with a hand gun and shotgun.

remember these assholes? they robbed a bank of America in hollywood in 1997, shooting 11 cops and 7 civilians. they were armed with a fully auto, illegally modified ak, an ar15 variant, and an hk91. cops started out with their sidearms and shotguns, until they requisitioned some ar's from local gun stores. a SWAT team also made the scene and killed 1 of the suspects, the other chose the cowards way out.
how 'bout these two boy scouts? they killed 11 and wounded 21 others, armed with cheap, but effective, shotguns and a carbine and 99 bombs. initial cop on scene had a handgun.  responding officers had the same type of arms and had to wait for swat to arrive and assemble, giving these 2, overcome with teenage angst, time to do much of their killing.
how about these two misunderstood youths, looking for a brighter future here in the states, they spark any memories? they just used their cooking utensils, in an unapproved manner, killing 3 and wounding 264, then killed a cop and wounded 16 more officers who were trying to end their reign of terror.  the outcry from this incident REALLY chaps my ass. guys are out looking for dedicated terrorists and in serious jeopardy, and all many still have to do is complain, about a "police state" because citizens were asked to stay in, out of the line of fire.

many of the complaints center around uniforms, modes of transportation and armament. the above photo doesn't seem to illicit much of a response, nor do these, unless you hate cops.

but man, these sure get folks hot under the collar;
riot breaks out, well send the police, but lets not give them ANY tools to keep them from getting their heads split by thrown rocks or bottles. a man gets fired then returns to his former place of employment, kills a supervisor and then takes hostages at rifle point. let's just send in 2 traffic officers and a burglray
detective armed with their 9mm pistols to ferret him out of the 7,500 square foot warehouse.  that seems to be the attitude of many of law enforcements critics.

now i'm going to guess that if some serious shit breaks out near you, you will pray the cops roll in heavy.

i'm not talking about this, but rather what happens next.

oh, i know, this would never happen to you, MR. FUCK THE POLICE, cuz your street smart and tough, plus you carry.  sometimes.  just not at work.  cuz you'll get fired.  i don't agree with that, but i'm not your boss.  and i also know the cops abandoned south central at the beginning of the riots, so don't waste my time bringing it up.

all this bring us up to speed on current events, which i will discuss in part 2 of this post.

Merry Christmas

a Christmas carol written by a Jesuit missionary among the Huron and Wendat Indians at sainte marie in the 1640's.  it embraces our Christian, hunting and for me, Canadian heritage.

it's called mythomania

  i only stretched the truth this much, and it was for your own good.

Compulsive lying, also called Mythomania, is a rather common symptom of mental illness. This disorder presents an acute challenge by its very nature because health care professionals cannot always tell if the patient is telling the truth with regard to symptoms. Compulsive or pathological liars are often so convincing that they consistently beat polygraph tests and convince themselves that their lies are the truth.

 The Difference Between Habitual Lying and Mythomania

It is hard to separate these two cases, because some people engage in “white” lies to avoid hurting other’s feelings. The pathological liar, by contrast, cannot help lying, even when the lie cause’s harm. It is this aspect of Mythomania that distinguishes it as a form of illness, rather than a habit. Those who lie regularly and without compunction to achieve desired results may need to consider some form of therapy to change these habits.

there ya go kids, now you know what's wrong with him, and this is apparently caused by,  'The complex issues involved include self esteem, feelings of inadequacy, early life issues including physical or verbal abuse, drug and alcohol addiction and more.'

i took the top two paragraphs as well as the causation statement from the Helping Psychology site, it was authored by Marc Pickren and appeared in Intro to Psychology.

we have heard this for years about this guy,  maybe through static and in the background, but it was there.  we tuned it out or only glanced at it in passing, but it was there, under our noses, hiding in the open.  how we handle it is up to us.

sorta lends credence to the theories about his birth certificate and draft registration card now don't it?

Veterans Day 2013

this veterans day will be a bitter sweet day off for me.  normally i would work, but the wife and i get such little time together these days i decided to take it off.  the last year has seen the loss of 2 men who were very dear to me, my dad, and my uncle.

dad is at the top, as shown in his NAVY uniform during the Korean War.  the next picture is my uncle, probably in the  "tan and pinks" of the ARMY during WW2.  they weren't "great men" as defined by thomas carlyle, but they were  wonderful to me, and their families. 

dad was a bit acerbic at times, but i truly grew to appreciate him after i left home and joined the ARMY myself.  until you are out on your own, working to put a roof over other's heads and pay bills, worrying about kids health and grades, i don't think a man can honestly understand the pressure of being a dad.  the sunday mornings when he would return home after delivering papers most of the night, and wake me up to go fishing meant so much to me.  i think i must have been quite a bemusement to dad as he was SUCH a liberal, and i turned out to be SO conservative, despite his best efforts.  i really miss calling and heckling him over the the many screw ups of his buddies clinton, reid and pelosi, teddy swim meet, and the annointed one.  dad claimed i couldn't get under his skin, but he sure did get good at hanging up on me when i called to razz him about the great job the dems were doing.

my uncle was huge when i was a kid, with a deep gruff voice and cigars who was sorta scary.  outward appearance aside, he was one of the kindest, gentlest men i have ever known.  he grew up tough working with my grandfather on rental properties the family owned and collecting money from over due renters.  he was almost stabbed once doing this.  before and after the war he worked for one of the bell's stringing telephone lines, and based on that experience he rose to the rank of master sergeant in the ARMY's signal corps.  i could always stop by and see and see him and my aunt,  an ARMY nurse during the war, when i was a kid and get a soda and sandwich if i was out running around.  as i no longer live where i grew up,i was so glad i took the time out of a busy schedule to stop and visit with my uncle after dad's funeral, as he passed just 6 months later.

so today as the wife and i get a little us time, we will be remembering these 2 sons of the republic, and their service. we miss you everyday.

vindictive the lesser

so today we get the news that family members of the military, killed in combat in asscrackistan, will not receive a $100,000 dollar pay out due to the government shutdown.  shame on you mr. obama.

relatives of 25-year-old 1st Lt. Jennifer M. Moreno; 24-year-old Pfc. Cody J. Patterson; 24-year-old Special Agent Joseph M. Peters; 25-year-old Sgt. Patrick C. Hawkins; and 19-year-old Lance Cpl. Jeremiah M. Collins, Jr. would have otherwise received the payment within three days of the death.

so in addition to trying to close the WWII memorial, yosemite park, the lincoln and jefferson memorials and countless others, mr. obama is now punishing families who have had their world literally destroyed.

where is president EXECUTIVE ORDER when hurting AMERICAN'S need real leadership?

thankfully, FISHER HOUSE has shown that leadership which the vacationer in chief lacks, and will cover those payouts.  this is who many of you voted for AMERICA, your chickens have come home to roost.
