When I mentioned illegal voting in a previous post, I hit a raw nerve with some of the lunatic fringe. I got a number of comments (which I gleefully deleted) denying that illegal voting takes place, saying there is no proof illegal voting takes place, and on, and on. I think all of these people fit into one of the three categories below:
Some of them, I'm sure, make it into more than one category. I also know that a lot of the people who wound up in the spam folder seriously need to go back to school and work on basic language skills.
So, for those who feel that saying the Democrats encourage and facilitate illegal voting is a foul calumny, here's an interesting video from One America News.
Obama is gone, but his stench lingers on.
Ammo. As Kipling said, you can never have enough.
Particularly these days, when so many unfathomable things are happening almost daily. I think after the mid term elections in November, we may not be in so fortuitous a position as we are now politically. It's even possible that after the next presidential elections, we may have an Obama clone in the White House, and a congress run by the Moonbats.
Or, the whole can of worms could blow open, if the right incident happens at the right time.
This was taken some fifteen years or more ago. By then, I'd already been stockpiling ammo for at least a decade. William the Bastard's reign was a bad time. Most people don't remember Ruby Ridge, or Waco, but the oldsters do. People don't remember the Feinstein "10 year gun ban", but it happened. We remember Janet Reno. Those times could come again.
I'm still buying ammo when I find a good deal. I might never use it, but I'd be utterly amazed if my kids didn't need it at some time in the future. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if I needed it myself in the immediate future. I wish I could quote some of the emailed letters I get from people all over the country. I never quote a person unless they specifically say I can, and most prefer I don't. The reason they send emails instead of comments is that they want to maintain a low profile. These days, I am not sure you can do that, whatever you try, but I respect their wishes.
If I could quote from some of these missives, it would be clear that things are a lot more hair trigger right now than most of us realize. I know a lot of people don't read the news, because it aggravates them and is full of lies. But during WW2, people listed to Tokyo Rose and Lord Haw Haw, even through they knew it was enemy propaganda, because they at least got some idea of what was going on. I regard the MSM (main stream media) the same way. If you keep yourself completely in the dark, it might be better for your blood pressure but it can give you a false sense of confidence.
Things happen fast. I knew that after my sojourn in Lebanon 1982-1983, and I've had a second object lesson living through the immense changes up here in the mountains in such a short time.
So, when I got an email from Centerfire, offering 2,500 rounds of brass cased, high velocity, hollow point .22LR (Armscor) for under $120.00, I bought some. If .22LR is one of the currencies of the future, as a lot of intelligent people think it will be, I won't be short of cash. There's also the fact that a .22LR Ruger 10-22 with some banana clips , loaded up with HV, HP ammo, would be a good gun for a small person.
I don't know what's going to happen in this country, but I may find out here before too long. If so, I'm not betting on buying anything I need from any stores once the fewmets hit the windmill.
“The difference between being a victim and a survivor is often a low level of situational awareness.”
Thought for the Day:
“The junior hoodlums who roamed their streets were symptoms of a greater sickness; their citizens (all of them counted as such) glorified their mythology of ‘rights’ . . . and lost track of their duties. No nation, so constituted, can endure.”
