We the People Do Not Follow False Prophets

This is not about gun control.

It’s about what drives the control freaks to want to deprive American citizens of the right to own this or that, do this or that, and say this or that.

I spent some time this week reading a chapter from a book about the madness behind the near-to-religious fanaticism in people who insist that we’re all doomed and the world is going to end tomorrow unless all of us agnostics and antitheorists kowtow to the New Religion of Climate Whoosiewhatsis.  Some of the more flagrant cranks offered to strangle you in your bed.

Because it’s Lent, and because Easter falls on April Fool’s Day this year, I suggested some place else that people who wish to relieve themselves of the Burden of Unbelief spend some time (and substantial cash) in the company of the Monks of Carbon Apostasy.

I will happily include in that a visit to the Brethren of Guns ‘n’ Ammo Apostasy.

While I was poking fun at the hysterics of fanaticism and pseudo-religious fervor we witness in so-called liberals, I wasn’t too far off on the pseudo-religious aspect of it. “Catastrophe”, “worse than ever”, “doomsday” and other hyperbole  connected to climate references is advertising language, used to sell a product which, in this case, is not just climate change, but rather disastrous climate change.

“Repent, and give us your money and you’ll be saved from this Looming Catastrophe!!!  Algore needs more of your money, so send it!! All of it!!!”

Does anyone besides me remember Jim and Tammy Faye Baker?

It is baloney, and we all know it, but the uninformed, naïve twits who fall for that stuff swallow it as if it were chocolate syrup on vanilla ice cream. They are drawn into it because it provides them with some sort of pseudoreligious ecstasy. They become part of what they think is a Higher Order. This is not a joke. When you try talking to them in a reasonable way, to point out that the disaster hasn’t happened yet, and likely won’t, that they are being deceived, they refuse to listen, and either run off or start those lame-ass personal attacks.

It is the same thing with guns. The fact that no one is forcing the anti-gun crowd to buy, own, rent, touch or even look at a gun is immaterial. They don’t get that part at all, nor do they care. They insist on being terrorized by guns.  It feeds their need for some kind of emotional fulfillment. Frankly, I doubt that the majority of them go to any religious edifice unless there’s a funeral – and even then, they’d probably rather have it in a gym. In a large enough edifice, they can wallow in their Worship of the Dead. Something is missing in their souls. Perhaps a visit to the confessional would help them.

We know exactly how, why, and when guns are pounced on by the media as horrifying objects at the very moment a shoot-shoot-bang-bang event occurs. The fact that the media as a group act worse than African jackals sniffing for blood and scrounging for scraps when something dies only emphasizes their blood lust. And they have that, in spades. They wallow in it. They are just as addicted to this lust for blood as a crackhead is addicted to crack cocaine, or a junkie who shoots up, or some kid stealing painkiller opioids from a medicine cabinet because he will do anything to get high.

What’s the source of this need to hammer the public about blood and gore?  I’m not sure, but if you are familiar with real history, not the foppish made-up crap being taught now, you know that we humans as a species have a long, long trail of spilled blood, because we are apex predators, just like lions, bears, wolves and sharks. The Romans had organized theater for it in gladiatorial games. The sight and smell of bloodletting can make you randy, even if you won’t admit it to yourself. But now, we are more civilized.  We have football and pizza instead of brutal sword fights and dormice pickled in grape leaves.

It isn’t something new. The media have always been like this, but the current crop of media mopes seems to have gone off the deep end into a cenote of blood thirstiness that would put Dracula and Caligula to shame. The ‘jump to a conclusion’ hysterics that followed immediately on the heels of the Parkland school shooting were too disgusting for words. It was like watching a kettle of vultures gathering in the sky, looking for a corpse to tuck into before the animal is even dead – except that vultures don’t do that. (No offense meant to vultures in general.)

It is not only the media that act this way, as individuals and brainless zombies. They can smell blood on the pavement long before it dries. They count on the same blood lust in their viewers. They know their audience well enough to throw these ghoul parties ‘Live! On TV!”

However, as we found very shortly after the choreographed hysterics, abusive displays of frightened children on live TV, and a complete lack of simple decency, the media were so completely wrong and so full of utter shit, that they completely lost any credibility they might ever have had.

How quickly did that story die away, once their falsehoods were exposed? Stepped on their own cranks, they did.

Further information was released on a daily basis and the massive errors by the Liberaltwits became nothing but an embarrassment to journalism. They made damned fools of themselves in the process, sending real journalism further down into the sewers. One can only hope that they will never recover from their own deceit, and that in fact, it will become worse and worse until they are fully exposed for what they are: the false front faggot-bearers for Totalitarianism.

The pseudo-religious hysterics also apply to the Guns & Ammo corner, and all things related to them as one liberal, self-involved, greedy politician after another jumps into the spotlight to try to blame inanimate objects for what people do. A gun cannot function without a human using it, any more than my 9 inch cast iron skillet can cook bacon without my putting bacon into it and turning on the stove. Ammo won’t load itself into a magazine, nor will my paring knives jump out of the kitchen drawers without assistance.

These transparent and lame attempts to promote fanaticism are not doing too well. They are slowly crumbling. I think that the Leftherds were counting on We the People as a group, being dumb enough to not think for ourselves, and they were wrong again.

We the People aren’t remotely the dumbasses that they think we are.

Nor are We the People as stupid as they are. We the People can still tell a hawk from a handsaw. They cannot.

Therefore, We the People must remain vigilant. We the People cannot afford to yield even one inch. Give them no quarter. We the People have a tough fight ahead of us, but we should be able to say ‘You should have seen the other guy.’

    Don’t threaten me with a good time. 🙂

  2. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    From what I’ve seen, a lot of those anti-gun types are ones who have lived very sheltered lives, been spoon-fed their beliefs and are afraid of opposing viewpoints, ditto with the eco-doomsday cult.

  3. Graybeard says:

    As more evidence that those pseudo-religious fanatics on the left do want to kill us, I offer up the case of the Canadian woman at a protest who destroyed property and was found with a garrotte in her backpack:

  5. Atkron says:

    I wasn’t around for the turbulent 60’s, I was born a year too late.

    For those of you that were around then. Do you find the days we live in now worse than what was going on then?

    This is the worse I have ever been witness to; and I would like to get perspective.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      There were born-again religious fanatics on the campus of my university in the early 1970s, trying to recruit people for their ‘army’. They were rather nasty and at some point, were evicted because they weren’t students.

      The 1970s include the shootings at Kent State University, under the orders of Ohio’s then-governor. That was a real disaster.

      So, yes, I don’t see a lot of difference in this, except that there seem to be “leaders” like Gore and that fat yerkle Michael Mann from UPenn, and the “protesters” frequently seem to be paid to do the job now.

    • Hondo says:

      I’d say the 1960s was far worse. Ever hear of the Watts riots?

      The Watts riots weren’t an isolated incident, either. They were followed over the next several years by a sh!tload of others. 1967 was particularly bad – so bad it’s now sometimes referred to as the long, hot summer of 1967. And they’re not talking about the temperature.

      • David says:

        Concur racially, re the rest – never saw the depth of institutional support from MSM, colleges, etc. for the social schisms we have now. Probably a toss-up on balance but it’s pretty close.

        • 2/17 Air Cav says:

          Nixon was first elected by campaigning as the Law and Order candidate. That should signal what the 60s were like. Police and firemen were sniped at and hit. The riots were vicious. There were bombings (see Students for a Democratic Society) and students conducting sit-ins and taking over college administration buildings and wholesale rejection of institutions and traditions. I’m just getting warmed up w/o mentioning civil rights, women’s lib, and the Vietnam War. Anyone who remembers the 60s with fondness either is lying, was a hippie, or is insane.

        • Hondo says:

          Concur racially, re the rest – never saw the depth of institutional support from MSM, colleges, etc. for the social schisms we have now.

          Then I’d guess you weren’t following the media’s coverage of Vietnam and the antiwar movement from about 1966 on.

          2/17 AC is largely correct IMO. From 1964 or 1965 on, the 1960s were a pretty damn bad time in this country – the worst IMO since the Civil War in terms of a threat of the nation literally coming apart at the seams.

          • David says:

            There were still right wing papers and political debate on campuses. we like to think the MSM was united against the war, and the majority was, but there was never the near-universal lockstep there is now. Nor were so many universities so fully infiltrated as now. You knew which teachers were radicals and which weren’t… now it almost seems they ALL are.

      • 26Limabeans says:

        Laconia biker riots in the sixties.
        NG put it down with fixed bayonets.

        Race riots at the Balarou (MA)

    • Graybeard says:

      I was a HS student in the late ’60’s, and remember the long-hot summers referred to, being part of the original Jesus-freak movement. It seemed that every summer for several years there were deaths and rioting and neighborhoods being burned down.

      It was bad.

      But one thing I also remember – all that was stirred up by various Communist/Socialist groups with funding from Russia and China and some other groups.

      As compared to now – if the Antifa and BLM groups get any more traction, we may be heading for a repeat, but it is not as bad yet. One of the mitigating factors, IMHO, is the internet as a counterpoint to the MSM – which was in the pocket of the anti-American forces even then. Another is the renewed protection of our right to bear arms.

      Good, normal Americans can both communicate with each other better and defend themselves better than in 1967, thank God.

    • rgr769 says:

      I was in college in the mid-60’s. The sturm und drang now is way worse than the anti-Vietnam War stuff. The hippies weren’t planning to garrote their adversaries. Although, the Weather Underground and Bill Ayers were doing their bombings. But the general hatred of the Lefties wasn’t as severe, and they didn’t have so many targets of their hatred.

      • Yef says:

        I don’t know about a century ago, but in the 21st century, it seems to me the point of no return was the 2008 election and the Osama inauguration.

        They might have always been red, but after O they all came out of the closet and showed us how deep their red color was.

        This is the world we live in. It is ok being a communist/socialist, no matter how many times their system has failed.

        • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

          COMMUNISM only killed 150+ million people during the Twentieth Century and today’s proglodyte liberal moonbats merely want to give it JUST ONE more chance.


    I follow the Gospel of Peter Paul and William(Mauser) and John Moses(Browning)

  7. Sharon Nickols says:

    We just want to be able to discuss a compromise. You all wont give up anything, for the safety of our children. First it will be arming teachers, then it will be arming movie theatre workers, next it will be the zoo employees. Putting people everywhere with guns, will only put more guns out there that can be used to kill with. You scream about the illegal who stole a gun and killed that girl in California. Well how many more guns will be stolen if teachers have them. They dont even have a safe place to lock up their coats and purses, and now you want to put guns there too? More guns doesnt solve the problem, compromise does.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Wow, whatta way to try to change the direction of the thread, Tootsie.

      Big mistake. Big, huge mistake. Your ignorance is showing.

      CCW means you have to have the gun on YOUR PERSON, not left in a coat closet in your jacket pocket, you sap.

      Generally speaking, movie theater employees are teenagers working part-time to earn money and get some kind of work history on their resumes. Teens are, generally speaking, under age so how would they be allowed to carry weapons????

      And in addition, nobody said anything – particularly NOT ME – about MORE guns.

      Nice try. Epic fail. Please continue to fail to understand that this is about protecting our rights, not about adding more guns to the mix. You failed completely without even trying.

      Score: -0- Big fat one!

    • David says:

      Except your version of compromise is “we give up nothing, you always give up big.” Look at all the various gun controls enacted in the ’30s, ’60s, ’80s, and ’90s, and tell us: What part of those “compromises benefited gun owners? We’re waiting…

    • The Other Whitey says:

      You’re an idiot, Sharon. We’re the only ones who’ve given up anything so far.

      Besides, did you miss the part where nobody is advocating making it mandatory for teachers to carry? By the way, how the hell do you expect me to trust someone around my children if you insist that I can’t even trust them with a gun? All we suggest is allowing teachers the option of arming themselves at work if they choose to do so. Just like every other law-abiding citizen.

      Remember, Sharon, you can be anti-gun and atheist, but if someone is breaking into your house, you will do two things: call good guys with guns to come save you, and pray they get there in time.

    • Hondo says:

      So, Sharon – what part of the Bill of Rights are you willing to give up? Are you willing to require prior permission from the government to speak in public, or to express your opinion in private? Or to publish a newspaper or magazine, or comment on a web site? Are you OK with needing a permit from the state before you can join a particular church? What religions are you willing to ban outright?

      How about warrants for searches – are you willing to discuss doing without those and letting the police search anything and anywhere they like? Or to let the government decide as it sees fit who gets a jury trial for criminal offenses and who doesn’t?

      Like the other rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, the right to bear arms guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment is a fundamental Constitutional right. And like all other fundamental Constitutional rights, it’s not unlimited; it’s already subject to reasonable limitations that pass the “strict scrutiny” test. The SCOTUS said exactly that in Heller v. DC.

      When you’re willing to discuss limiting the other rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and the rest of the US Constitution (they are limited, by the way, in the same manner as is the right to keep and bear arms) – and you understand the freaking ramifications of what you’re advocating – we can talk. But until then, your idea of “compromise” is that gun owners give in to any demand you have. My response is that you can go get . . .

      Edited to add the following for clarity: I’m not in favor of – nor am I advocating – any new limitations on ANY of the rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. No Constitutional right is absolute; they’re all subject to limitations based on judicial strict scrutiny.

      What I’m doing here is attempting to frame the argument so that thick-headed Progressives such as Sharon here might have a prayer of understanding precisely is what they’re advocating: gutting the Bill of Rights. Because the limitations won’t stop with the 2nd Amendment.

      Don’t believe me? Ever heard of “hate speech laws”? Ask a Canadian about them. If I recall correctly, that’s now a crime in Canada.

      • OldSoldier54 says:

        Oh, yeah. Especially your edit.

        I think it was Ben Franklin who stated that those who were willing to give up their Liberty for Security will receive neither.

        Miss Nikols, this is a VERY slippery slope you are advocating and at the bottom, dwell Tyranny/Serfdom/Slavery.

      • Atkron says:

        You can add the United Kingdom to that list. Paul Golding and Frieda (I cannot remember her last name) were convicted of Hate Speech for calling out pedophiles in the London Paki community.

        Freedom of Speech is extremely important, but how do you solve tyranny if you’re afraid to speak up? Or, better yet, yelling from a free-speech area two blocks from what you’re trying to protest in the first place.

        Quit pissing away your Rights because someone tells you on TV you don’t need to worry about that kind of stuff.

      • Yef says:

        Wait wait.

        Hondo can edit his posts???

    • OldSoldier54 says:

      Sorry, Miss Nickols, but I do not think compromise means what you think it means.

      Those days are over. Period.

    • Atkron says:

      Sharon…you literally make my head hurt. Did you see the story from the other day where crates marked furniture was found at the border containing illegal firearms?

      You suppose that those are the firearms making their way into the streets?

      Banks are already protected by people with guns. Court Houses are already protected by people with guns. The Capital Buildings for both the states and the nation are protected by people with guns. Airports are protected by people with guns. Celebrities are protected by people with guns. But somehow schools shouldn’t?


      Nobody is forcing Teachers to carry a firearm. Simply allowing them to carry if they so choose is all that is being suggested.

      You know if you’d quit putting your maxi-pads on adhesive side up you wouldn’t be so cranky and illogical.

      • Hondo says:

        C’mon, Atkron – remember the obligatory spew alerts if you’re going to write stuff like that last sentence. (smile)

      • Sharon Nickols says:

        Way to make a sexist remark, just to attack me because I’m a woman. If I told you I was african american, would you have made a racist joke too?

          Way to play two victim cards in less than a paragraph.

          Your leaps of logic are of the Superman (or would you prefer Supergirl, so I am not being sexist?) proportion.

          About two weeks ago I accused you of having been a twin at birth…because you have enough stupid for two people.

          It’s a deep sink here in this corner of the world.

          No one is forcing you to set one toe in it, and yet you get your undies in a bunch and use tired, bourgeois cliches to change and control the direction of this post, because you can’t read for content or context.

          No, we are not letting you Lefties take us back to Jim Crow, no matter how much you racist fuckheads snivel about your good old days or “the children”.

          Because whenever you talk about keeping guns “out of the wrong hands” we know exactly what you racists meant and still mean.

          So piss off, Klukkker. You aint disarming -this- injun.

        • The Other Whitey says:

    • Roh-Dog says:

      Here’s my compromise: return to preNFA laws (ie full auto, suppressors, short barrel rifles, etc are unregulated), 100% reciprocity carry, no gun registration, person to person sales are legal and need no background check, abolish the ATF as it currently stands.
      You get behind that, I’ll see you get to keep the pen it’s signed with.
      Just in case you don’t get it: there will be no ‘compromise’.

      • Hondo says:

        Best I can tell, the Left’s concept of “compromise” regarding firearms ownership bears a striking resemblance to Iran’s (and the rest of radical Islam’s) concept of coexistence with Israel.

        • Roh-Dog says:

          Or any western ideals.
          Intolerance of intolerance is in itself dogma to these fascist morons.
          You will toe the line or we take your head, I don’t care what the philosophy that espouses that edict. It is tyrannical and shall be expunged.

    • SFC D says:

      Sharon, please define “compromise”. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    • IDC SARC says:

      “You all wont give up anything, for the safety of our children”

      None of the current proposals I’ve seen will assure any increase in any child’s safety. None of what you’re writing even offers any substantive proposal, just the same old empty rhetoric.

      Fukk you, gun owners/users have children too so there’s nothing relevant or special in your using them as verbal human shields.

      • Sharon Nickols says:

        Do you lock your guns up at home? What if 3 kids decide to jump a teacher who is carrying a weapon? Kids are walkig around teachers all the time, through the halls, in the classes, now you have easy targets to be disarmed, and now a kid has a gun

        • IDC SARC says:

            I love this comment, SARC, but my missus thinks it is highly inappropriate, especially on International Wimmens Day (week or whatever). She doesn’t get male humor, just doesn’t understand a true lover of the wimmens like you.

        • Graybeard says:

          Actually, no. First of all, I’ve taught my kids, and we are teaching the grandkids, how to safely use firearms, and want them to have access to them when they need them.

          My granddaughter, who is more of a woman than you could ever hope to be, has used firearms to defend her chickens on more than one occasion.

          Come back when you grow some pubic hair, child.

          • The Other Whitey says:

              • Graybeard says:

                I will put any of my kids’ IQ and skillsets up against yours any day of the week, Sharon the Moron. And laugh as my 8-year-old grandson schools you. My teenage granddaughter would leave you blibbering in the corner. And my children, biological, in-law, and informally-adopted, will send you back to pre-school where you belong.

                And just so you have no doubt in your pea-brained head – we are Texans and a military family.

                Go adjust your diaper, child.

        • Hondo says:

          If three punks jump a teacher who is trained and carrying, the likelihood is that at least one punk will get shot – and the remainder will likely split after “soiling their undies”.

          If the same three punks jump an unarmed teacher, there’s a good chance the teacher leaves in an ambulance – and maybe never makes it home.

          And please spare us the “but a kid might steal a gun” crap. City kids living in rough neighborhoods don’t need to jump a teacher to get a pistol. In the rough parts of any city, firearms are available for a price – legal or not. All they have to do is ask around.

        • Ex-PH2 says:

          First of all, Sharon Nickols, your argument does NOT hold even a half teaspoon of water. Your ignorance about how and where KIDS get guns is deep, deeper than the swamps in Louisiana bayous.

          If you are actually stupid enough to think that kids get guns from teachers, you must live in some sort of cloud castle where nothing bad ever happens.

          For your edification, the two 15-year-old boys who were convicted in the 2013 death of Hadiya Pendleton in a shooting at a Chicago park got their guns from the gang they belonged to.

          They admitted to it. They weren’t even in school, you uninformed slacker. They were gangbangers.

          Your ignorance level is
          appallingly and disturbingly deep. The more you post comments, the more convinced I am that you live in some sort of isolated, cotton puff-wrapped environment where nothing ever goes wrong, or if it does, you sue the manufacturer.

          Before you decide to try to post another comment, try be better informed.

        • Twist says:

          Utah has allowed teachers to carry in schools since 2001. Care to tell me how many teachers have had their firearms taken by students in Utah in the last 17 years? I’ll wait

          • rgr769 says:

            Numerous school districts, in pilot programs, across the country have allowed fully trained teachers to voluntarily carry at school. There have been no such incidents. Had there been, the Bloomberg funded anti-gunners and the media would have been screeching it incessantly over the airwaves and the intertubes. “Sharon” your assertions are about as accurate as the argument several years ago that “shall issue” CCW licenses to law abiding citizens would result in gunfights in the street.

              rgr769; When I mentioned Florida was thinking about open carry, my liberal friends in my 55/over community, you know the ones from NY, Boston etc. started to get the hysterics that it would be like the old west, and I pointed out that usually the open carry States had the lowest crime rates, but That didn’t matter to these peeps.

        • The Other Whitey says:

          Sharon, what if a federal agent, under color of authority, decides to rape you in your home? That’s as plausible as your scenario.

          If a teacher carries, then they will in all likelihood carry concealed, meaning nobody will know they’re carrying until they have to actually engage a threat with deadly force, which with any luck most of them will never do. Stop assuming other people are as dumb as you. It’s rude.

        • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

          Hey shit-for-brains Sharon, once said kids jumped said Teacher, how are they gonna know what other Teachers are armed and which ones aren’t?

          When I’m not at home, yes. When I’m at home, there are usually 2 unlocked and available. I can’t leave them home alone unlocked, they might wander down to a school and shoot someone. Isn’t that what guns do, Sharon? The person pulling the trigger can’t be blamed, the eebil gunz did it!

    • Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

      Hey Sharon; Why don’t you move to one of those Dictator controlled countries where you do not have to worry about guns, or go up to the mountains with your peeps, put on rose colored glasses and sit around a campfire singing Kumbia and the old Sara Sponda Sara Sponda campfire song while banging sticks together and tapping your feet to the song.

      Thank you, OldSoldier54.

      • Wilted Willy says:

        Ex, this is by far, your best post yet! Do you really want to make people like old Sharon here’s head explode? You really can’t expect them to accept the truth do you? I love it!!
        Take care,

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Thanks, Willy, and if being unable to read for both context and content is one of the significant characteristics of the Leftreds, then Sharon wins the Big Dope Prize of the Week.

        If it makes her head explode, I’ll just get out of her way.

        I said, at the very beginning of the article, that it is NOT about gun control. It’s about depriving us of our rights, altogether.

        Sharon must be deliberately illiterate.

        • Atkron says:

          I think Sharon, like Lily, just don’t get enough attention in the real world.

          They come here to post dumb comments in order to get attention, even if it is negative.

          • Graybeard says:

            Probably both of them live very sad lives in the real world – and I pity them.

            That does not mean I will not mercilessly mock them when they post idiotic drivel. Maybe I ought to finish up my retorts with that good ol’ Southern idiom: “Bless your heart.”

          • Ex-PH2 says:

            I have this gut feeling that lielie got bumped out. No idea why, but it’s there.

            You’re right – some people just make comments for the sake of getting attention, not to contribute anything to the commentary. Their entire schtick is to annoy people and then point to the responses and say ‘see??’, when they provoked it in the first place.

          • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

            I’m certain that Sharon has lived a very sheltered life and hasn’t been around the real world very much, thus her hard-headedness along with her beliefs that aren’t rooted in reality.

        • Ex-PH2 says:

          Yes, Atkron, and if lily is a silly as he seems to be, it should be sometime this evening (my time) when he posts some vapid comment meant to stir the nest.

          I will be waiting, breathless with anticipation.

    It’s interesting how things people learn in kindergarten are somehow forgotten when they become adults.

    It so happens I recently ran across the children’s story If You Give a Moose a Muffin. The lesson of the parable is that if you grant a simple request, you need to also be aware it could lead to an infinite series of other requests. Sort of like current politics.

    There’s also the prospect, in a political sense, that granting all those requests leads to a situation T.H. White might call one where, “Everything which is not forbidden is compulsory.” Such a state apparently being an apparatchik’s wet dream.

    When it comes to the environmental community, it’s also helpful to remember some of the most strident hysterics leading it aren’t always all that stable. Some years ago while working on a story, I remember spending 30 minutes or so having a perfectly amiable conversation with a woman protester who tried to convince me in the most earnest terms that Banana slugs were “sentient beings.”

    I kept wondering when somebody was going to turn up the volume for The Twilight Zone soundtrack.

    • Hondo says:

      I’m familiar with that quote, PG. It’s called “the Totalitarian Principle”.

      The political Left is also familiar with that principle. They call it “doctrine”.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Banana slugs ‘sentient beings’….

      Okay, I am quite glad I had swallowed my tea before I read that. I must add that I am less and less surprised by the sheer ignorance of those on the Leftred side of the fence, especially the younger sort. They are coming out of the cocoon of youth with crumpled wings. They may never learn to fly, which is probably the entire purpose for stunting their mental growth in the first place.

    “Monks of Carbon Apostasy”

    Very nice.

    Maybe we should start a national conversation about how city dwellers buy organic produce but use tons upon tons of poisons and pesticides every year in order to keep their homes, restaurants and businesses from being literally over-run by rodents and insects. I got a feeling the response would be akin to “But I NEED the armed guards for protection! Harumpf!”

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      A national conversation about poisoning the nest – fine with me! I think that would be quite worthwhile.

      Ditto a national conversation spurred by the Brethren of Guns ‘n’ Ammo Apostasy, which starts here and may continue into the future.

      Thank you, TF-BA!

    A gun range in Texas has put in their two cents worth on the controversy about selling ARs:

    WARNING: Put down all drinks and food before clicking through, and ensure that you have no food or drink in your mouth.

    Heavy sigh. I just can’t quit you, TAH.

    So, Sharon has some real concerns. Some of them come from a lack of knowledge/aka ignorance, but some are valid.

    Why don’t you address her concerns with a little dignity and respect instead of vitriol? Who are you trying to persuade- her, or each other?

    You have a chance to explain your position to someone who doesn’t understand, and instead you resort to some pretty unimaginative insults and virtual high-diving.

    Seriously, do you people want to maintain gun rights in America or are you actively trying to make people fear law abiding gun owners, because that’s what reactions like this are doing.

    I know, you all think I’m a gun grabbing lefty, but It doesn’t change the fact that PH’s original post was a rambling, nonsensical rant and that you all reacted to an outside opinions with a herd-like mass hysteria. Please, get a grip all of you. I would like to keep my guns

    P.S. I will be out of the loop most of the weekend, and while your personal attacks are sometimes funny (they’re called ‘ad hominem’ btw, and they are by definition a flaw in your logic), if none of you have an actual point I won’t answer. I’ll probably lose interest by Sunday, anyway.

    Have a great weekend, everyone!,

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      I myself can’t help it, I get a kick out of making her head explode via the use of facts and logic along with a bucket of insults and sarcasm. If you can’t stand the heat, you simply need to GTF out of the kitchen!

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Rambling? Rambling? Gee whiz, sonny-boy, and I cut 750 words out of the original “ramble”! Maybe I should have left them in place. Then you’d really have something to complain about.

      No, Sharon doesn’t have REAL concerns. If you had really read what she said, you’d realize that she just dropped by to poke the bear through the bars of the cage. But you missed that, so it’s your loss.


      • rgr769 says:

        Reddevil says it all in his handle; he is another crypto-commie light/proggie, like the overly verbose LC. He thinks we just need to “compromise” with the likes of this progtard witch. He apparently missed the powerpoint about how is it impossible to persuade zealots/lefties about any of their ingrained erroneous beliefs. He needs to read the recent dissertation here about liberal zombies. Guess what Red-boi, that is what the Mensheviks thought about compromise with the Bolsheviks. Look where that got them.

    • Atkron says:

      Along comes the pious dickhead that believes he’s the smartest guy in the room.
