How to Save the American Economy: John Galt and Thorium Reactors

Two things I noticed immediately from the film critics of Dark Knight Rises, and now of the upcoming Atlas Shrugged Part II, is that the media in general is belittling the kind of super energy power supply that is featured in those films. CLICK HERE FOR AN EXAMPLE. In Dark Knight Rises Bruce Wayne has funded essentially a thorium reactor that will power Gotham City with the cleanest and most powerful energy yet devised on earth. In Atlas Shrugged Part II John Galt has built a special engine that is capable of running off static electricity, literally pulling electrons out of the air much the way lightning forms in nature. Both technologies are based on scientific fact yet are presented in superhero films as a solution to the world’s energy, financial, and environmental impact issues surrounding sustainable power. There is a good reason for that belittlement–because anything that is not coal, solar, wind, oil, or any other established technology, is a threat to the financial roots those technologies have established in human culture.

Even the liberal press who leans in the direction of environmental concerns find the kind of energy supply shown in Dark Knight Rises and Atlas Shrugged as science fiction regulated to childhood fantasies. What they fail to disclose is that their opinions are formulated around the millions of dollars traditional power supply companies have spent on congressman, senators and lawyers through lobbyists to protect their monopolies. The media are victims of a protection racket propelled by the political establishment to cover for the money that lobbyists spent on legislators to shape public opinion. All the parties involved in the racket are committed to their own doomed futures with a foolish pursuit of the kind of power that is produced by traditional sources in order to protect the jobs, the flow of money, and the long-term contracts that have been set up by the emergence of electricity.

But, the concepts shown in Dark Knight Rises and Atlas Shrugged are not science fiction, but rather are science fact. Thorium in fact is a source of nuclear power that was developed as far back as the middle of the Twentieth Century and President Nixon was firmly committed to developing it as a way to inject a lot of life into the American economy. But politics got in the way and threw roadblocks up at every attempt. When Three Mile Island happened in America, and most recently Fukushima in Japan the media and political scallywags seized upon those tragedies to frighten a timid public away from nuclear energy—so to preserve the public need of dirty energy by which many millions of current jobs rely. No politician in their right mind would dare act against the job losses and union jobs of those working in the energy sectors of the American economy which would be threatened by the kind of change thorium reactors would bring to the energy industry. It would be equivalent to introducing email to the United States Post Office service. The result to traditional mail is that it’s going bankrupt because it simply can’t compete with email. Thus the same would be said of thorium reactors compared to coal-burning power plants or solar energy.

Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor technology is truly a revolution in clean energy production. Thorium is such a dense energy supply that a lifetime of energy use can be held in the palm of a hand. LFTR reactors are small and can consume nearly 100% of its fuel while current reactors only consume about 2% before the fuel becomes waste. LFTR’s process heat can turn coal and natural gas to methanol, and can be used to harvest shale oil. It can turn trash into synthetic gasoline and diesel fuel. LFTR’s can help cure cancer, provide true national energy independence, desalinate salt water and create countless jobs and national prosperity. The only thing that is preventing LFTR energy in America is over regulation of the nuclear industry created by the government in response to a panic addicted media all in the preservation of existing power sources protected by lobbyists.

Imagine being able to build a LFTR power plant in North Africa along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Not only could it produce enough power to take care of most of the northern countries, it could also turn sea water into drinkable service bringing irrigation canals to draught infested regions saving millions of lives and improving the lives of millions more. Because of LFTR technology no place on earth would have to go without water and no human being would have to die of thirst. It would enrich the lives of every human being on the planet.

There are many people in politics who do not wish to see American dependence on foreign oil go away, because they profit a great deal from that arrangement. They also do not wish to turn deserts green and feed the world, because then there would be no altruism from which they could act as middlemen of kindness. They do not wish to eliminate nuclear waste as LFTR does because then opposition to nuclear power by the public would be removed. They do not wish to turn trash into fuel, because then there would be no environmental danger to protest against, giving their fruitless lives less meaning. These types of people do not wish the world to be truly better. They wish to keep energy dependence alive and well because a dependent population tends to look toward a leader, and they fantasies to provide that leadership, even at the expense of other people’s freedom.

If America could rid itself of its fearful lobbyists and the politicians that eat from their hands stepping forward and embracing LFTR technology, the entire economy of The United States would change for the better. Such a decision would affect each and every citizen of America with new energy that is found in North America in great abundance that is clean, powerful, and clearly the next step for the human race. What is holding back our society from the millions of new jobs LFTR would create is a corrupt political system and a toothless media more committed to progressive politics than the kind of future LFTR could bring not just to America, but the world.

The misery of a failed economy, of world hunger, of people dying of cancer, of dirty energy and environmental hazards are self-inflicted because the potential of LFTR technology is available right now and has been for a number of years. But it has been concealed in order to protect the old way of doing business from the new way. What has happened is equivalent to the car companies at the turn of the century being prevented from emerging as a business because the makers of horse carriages lobbied congress to create laws to prevent the car companies from buying tires. The power of the energy lobby has been to protect how money was made yesterday, not in developing how it will be made tomorrow.
When film critics attempt to belittle an emerging technology it is not because they find it offensive, or silly. It is because it threatens the system they serve as a member of the accepted collective. They are acting as agents of attack against any threat to their primitive knowledge, because they wish to preserve the static intellectualism that they have built their lives around. When critics come out against the new Atlas Shrugged film it is not that the movie is bad, or the film narrative is poor. It is because they represent in real life what the fictional character of John Galt is attempting to warn the world about.

In the book Atlas Shrugged John Galt creates a society for those brave enough, and smart enough to comprehend it deep in the mountains of Colorado. He calls it Galt’s Gulch—otherwise known as Atlantis. It is a paradise on earth where he his friends flee the parasites of The United States resisting the inventions of the truly brilliant and creative. That society is made possible by John Galt’s miracle power generator, very similar to the LFTR technology discussed in this article. I have reported here at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom many technological achievements that are being held up by an overly regulated nation such as cures for cancer, flying cars, and extraordinary botanical growth methods which point to a world of tomorrow what we could have today if not for the degrees of collectivism invented by Karl Marx which is behind almost every modern political action. It is because of Marxist subscription to social collectivism that wonderful technologies like Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor’s have been placed on the shelf to protect the infrastructure of yesterday and the jobs created by that faded dream. The pain and suffering our society is anguishing through now, the mindless war for absolutely no reason but to keep politicians in power and crony capitalism thriving through lobbyists is completely avoidable and senseless. It’s a self-imposed pain created by the masochists in love with Marxism—with huge government bureaucracy, and a political class drunk on tax payer funded power.

Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor technology is not being discussed in the mainstream news because it threatens the monopolies of the past. Even though every politician wishes to get elected on promises they make to fix the problems of our day, deep in their hearts they never want the problems to actually be solved. They crave environmental issues, unstable conditions in the Middle East, nuclear melt downs with radiation that kills thousands because it leaves society scrambling for a leader to save the day, which never comes. So long as there are problems in the world, the politician has a job to do, and Washington—along with every parasite who lives off the money flowing down K-Street strives to keep that system intact. LFTR technology actually solves many modern problems, and that is why it is being shoved under the carpet, and kept from the public’s eyes.

So when the movie Atlas Shrugged Part II comes out understand that the plot of some brilliant man who invents a new form of energy which could save the world and give rise to a new day for the human race, but instead retreats to the mountains of Colorado to selfishly keep it for a small group of capitalists, that it’s more science fact than science fiction. Technology like what John Galt fictionally invented in Atlas Shrugged is actually quite real, and the methods which prevent that technology from benefiting mankind is just as real as the fictional tale claims. The critics who will pan the movie as ludicrous and immature—even selfish are the thieves who are keeping the world prisoner to their Marxist philosophy of collectivism in service to the political elite at the expense of innovation and human prosperity. The by-product of this philosophy is misery by the truck loads and mountains of broken dreams stamping out forever the light behind the eyes of every child with the courage to question their surroundings and crush the spirit of all the children who didn’t leaving an adult population of mindless drones and school levy supporters.

Mediscare: Paul Ryan likes ‘Atlas Shrugged’–“That’s a good thing”

Remember that RT News stands for Russia Today. And also remember that Ayn Rand escaped Russia as a young woman.  And if a person hates rich people or capitalism they have the taint of communism in them as defined by Karl Marx taught to most of society through indirect instruction.  Whenever a person speaks badly of wealth they are behaving like a communist. 

You can always tell a dishonest person by their actions, and in the case of Paul Ryan’s nomination as Mitt Romney’s second in command, the political left immediately used the strategy of fear to keep people from looking too closely at Ryan’s merits. Within one day of Ryan’s nomination leftists were calling the Ryan budget proposal “Mediscare,” because of the reforms proposed to overhaul Medicare hoping to scare senior citizens into voting for the communist Obama in a reelection campaign. CLICK HERE TO SEE RYAN’S PLAN FOR YOURSELF. Obama was correct when he said that he wasn’t a socialist. No, he’s much worse. Listen to Bill Whittle break down why Obama is a communist and a terrible president in the video below.

It must be terrible to exist in a political party that can only maintain itself based on the fears of the public. It must be terrible to have a complete political platform based exclusively on lies and manipulation. But that is in essence what the Democrats—communists—on the political left are doing in order to even look like they are staying in the current presidential race. They have no ideas, only more debt. They do not advocate national strength, only human weakness. And they drag their feet on everything because their political philosophy only works in theory, not in practice. For the communists in the Democratic Party their view of political solutions are to defer the issue to the depths of time and hope magically the problems solve themselves. Their world view is equivalent to wishing one could walk on Mars, but to do nothing to get there. Their plan is to simply wish for the task to occur, and in their minds, they will arrive on Mars to walk about at will. At best, they are out-of-touch with reality and that is not inflammatory rhetoric. It is a fact based on their actions.

Already Ryan is being labeled an “extreme” conservative and Democrats have used his love of the classic book Atlas Shrugged as a way to make him appear radical. This is very disingenuous, as I never heard conservatives during the last election criticize any Democrat because of a book they enjoyed. It was only after the 2008 election that Glenn Beck started looking into the kinds of people Obama put into The White House and found out that many of them loved Chairman Mao, and Karl Marx—known communists, but nobody in the press corps outside of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity would pick up the ball and run with it so the stories died with talk radio only and blogs. But already, I have heard from three different media outlets in just 24 hours that Ryan is an “extremist” because he happens to like the second most popular book in the Library of Congress behind The Bible which is Atlas Shrugged.

There is no question Ryan was the right pick for the Republican nomination because it has turned fear back around on the political left. Democrats are using fear to keep millions of people from listening to Paul Ryan who now has a national stage, and is more than capable of answering any question members of the media can throw at him. People will be able to see for themselves that it is not Ryan who is the radical, or Ayn Rand, the author of Atlas Shrugged, but the goofballs on the political left who are screaming “foul” because they know they cannot match the facts that Ryan will put forth.

The progressive machine I’ve spent so much time exposing at this site along with others who are all considered “extreme” right winged commentators will be exposed for what they are in the coming weeks. Their fear and attacks on Ryan will show the cards they’ve been hiding from the American people. In this poker game of politics, it will be discovered that all along the people who call themselves Democrats are actually communists in the extreme, and have all along sought the outright destruction of America as a land of prosperity. It will be discovered that the only reason people like Ryan and Ayn Rand are considered extremists are because the communists have such a philosophy that they have managed to pull America so far to the left people like Ryan and Rand appear extreme in comparison. But that is why the political left is now afraid, because to maintain that radical left political trend they must keep people afraid. Democrats hiding their communist intentions cannot match wits with the truth, because they will lose an argument if emotion is not the driving force. The facts are not on their side. Their intentions will be exposed in their actions as they will not be able to debate with Paul Ryan. He is smarter than anybody on the political left. He works harder, as he has often slept in his office because of his long hours. He has no dirt in his background. He is well read and is used to intense criticism and is not afraid of anything anybody can throw at him. He will be able to do to the political left what Scott Walker was able to do in Wisconsin. The truth will show itself because Ryan will not be swept under a rug. When the smoke clears, it will become clear to millions that all along the fear the political left used to advance their vision for America was simply a bluff in their poker game against The United States. The bet in the game is the elimination of capitalism from the American economy. For the Democrats the replacement is open communism and they hope that enough Americans are already so addicted to the money they’ve slid under the table that they’ve purchased their victory. But they haven’t, and now they are in deep trouble because they do not have an answer for Paul Ryan. And no matter how much they wish, they will not be able to defeat him in a debate in any theater because Ryan holds all the cards containing the facts, which the Democrats detest.

The only card Democrats have is fear to keep people from looking too closely at the game they are playing. If American society keeps their eyes on the game and not the fearful distractions, they will see what cheaters and liars these same Democrats have been since the Clintons were in The White House. When it comes to Paul Ryan, they will never win a debate now that he’s on a national stage, and it will be devastating to their intentions of communism. The facts finally have a spokesperson who can articulate the truth without apology, and that will end the game that communists posing as Democrats have attempted to use as a measure to remake America from the land of the free, into the land of the slave, bound to government handouts and bankruptcy perpetually.

The communists have much to fear from Paul Ryan, because they have always been up to no good. As far as Paul Ryan being a crazy radical I find that odd. Ryan is as far to the left of me as Obama is from Romney. And I’m no radical. What does that say about Obama?

Using Conroversy to Find the Truth in Public Education: ‘League of Wisdom’ Rises

I know this is a long article but complicated themes require advanced explanation, which is why I provided you with a little music to listen to that sums up the content you are about to read.  For ease of review I have linked many of the supporting articles to show clearly the path that brought us to this point in time.  If it hasn’t been obvious by now my premier strategy in fighting the Lakota School Levy has been a gradual increase of social controversy starting off small, and increasing with each levy attempt until something snaps. That will continue until the district makes drastic pay cuts in an honest attempt to balance their budget. The reasoning is an admission I came to years ago that the term “political correctness” was created by leftist extremists used to shackle the good manners of millions of conservatives. By holding conservatives to the impossible standard of living by “political correctness” rules, social parasites have been able to advance their own cause with great effectiveness. They often break their own rules while conservatives wither in paralysis by their sheer politeness. I decided not to play by those rules so to show others that what was holding conservatives back was not the superior philosophy of the political left, but the fear that conservatives have of controversy. By embracing controversy, I hoped to show thousands that the way to beat progressives was by not playing by the rules “they” created—and to not fear calling things by their real names.

If I had to do it again, I would home school my children during all their school years instead of just for a couple of years as my wife and I did. I never felt public education was teaching my children the dynamic aspects of life that I thought they should be exposed to. Instead, I always felt public education was teaching them to be “mediocre,” which was not what I desired as a father for my children. So to me, public education at its absolute best is a dismal failure.

Many haven’t figured it out yet but over $110 million Americans receive some sort of welfare, which can be seen on this chart released on The Blaze.com. This chart does not include Social Security, Medicare, or public education, and yes, to me public education is a form of welfare.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/this-chart-showing-welfare-dependency-will-ruin-your-day/

The sharp increase in these numbers shows the goal of the Obama White House which has been the goal of all socialists who have been operating in America and that is to buy votes. Currently with all the trouble Obama is in with legal issues and a dismal economy, he still has 50% of the vote, because more than half the nation gets some sort of check from the government as shown by the chart.

Public education is one of the largest socialist scams ever perpetrated on the American people. It in essence attempts to teach socialist values to young people while selling the service to the parents and the adult population as essential to a child’s well-being. If I had to raise a child today I would teach the child at home using the K-through 12 online computer course shown at the link below. This is a much more efficient method of teaching young people instead of attending an expensive brick and mortar school full of socialist union thumping teachers’ hell bent on the destruction of The United States. If any proof were needed that public education is a terrible travesty just look at the welfare numbers. When half the population is on welfare public education has failed to produce self-reliant individuals who are productive with entrepreneurial thinking. Instead, public schools make wishy-washy liberal leaning young people who take too long to grow up. Many of them don’t begin to see the light until their late 30’s these days and by then they have already started to raise misfits of their own, and the damage is already done.

When I first began my journey on this education reform path that I am on, it began by simply pointing out that the labor contracts for the public school unions were inflated. Since I had experience in my family after raising my own children that much of the education claims public schools were making toward a child’s well-being were inflated, because I had taken a very active role in teaching my children, I felt it was only fair to challenge the union position. Back on September 20th of 2010 I went on 700 WLW to talk about the real reason that my school district of Lakota needed a school levy, was to pay for the excessive wages of its employees. As I was doing that Kyle Olsen was putting up billboards around Cincinnati exposing the scam of public education. The Ohio Education Association responded to this statement by me and Olsen with a typical response at the time from the union, which can be seen below from the Pulse Journal. To listen to my original report on 700 WLW click here. The response from the OEA shown next made me so angry that I decided after the Lakota Levy was defeated to not take my foot off the neck of public education controlled by the labor unions. After the assault by David Little, a progressive activist, I decided that I had enough of these thugs who had taken over a school where I pay an enormous amount of money in personal taxes—all so people who wanted a quality “free” education for their children could pretend they were being good parents by spending a lot of money on homes to live in a school district that was highly sought after in the real estate market. The goodness of the district was being built by my property value which is in essence wealth redistribution because it was being consumed by value to fund the welfare system of public education. Click here to see the attack from David Little against me shortly after the first WLW radio spot. You can see the entire article from the Pulse Journal at the link below.

LIBERTY TWP. — Representatives of the Lakota Education Association say they hope voters will listen to facts given out by the school district rather than “rhetoric” from a group advertising in the area on bill boards.

“It has become the trend during election campaigns for anti-levy and anti-public education groups like (Education Action Group) to surface, speaking out against public education, and then to retreat again once the elections are over,” according to a statement from the OEA.

“We think that, first of all, it’s an outside group that is anti-public schools and anti-union,” Rodney Bird, labor relations consultant for the OEA said. “We believe the voters in southwest Ohio and in Lakota are intelligent enough to make their decision on a local levy based on the facts given by the district.”

http://www.pulsejournal.com/news/news/local/lakota-union-leaders-respond-to-area-billboard-c-1/nNcxd/

 

That’s how it was back then; the unions were quoted all the time in the paper because nobody challenged them. People were afraid that the union would vandalize their homes, or that they would be publicly ridiculed within their communities. The force of the unions and the monopoly of their education empires deserved to have their asses kicked. So I started this site, Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom to contrast what the OEA said about people like me during levy elections. When the election was over, I did not go away. To this day, the union has been exposed for what they are, crooked thugs hell-bent on socialist destruction of America. After three years of very public battles the unions hardly have instigated a peep, they haven’t threatened to strike in the entire Cincinnati area primarily because of the constant coverage on 700 WLW.

I went on to do dozens and dozens of radio spots against the unions in Ohio and never were they able to come on the air and combat me, because they could not fight the truth. Instead they attempted to use the PTA organizations and the “real-estate cartels” to do their dirty work. Everyone knows that most of the pro levy supporters on an organized front are real-estate agents because they use the quality of the free schools to help sell homes, while passing the bill on to residents who already live in the community. Heads rolled and people lost their jobs on all fronts. I had a right to get angry when I discovered that volunteers supporting the union cause were camping outside the doors of a local Kroger and trying to smear my name to my friends and neighbors as they entered on a Saturday afternoon to buy groceries. Such thuggish behavior deserved an answer—it required an answer. I called them “latte sipping prostitutes with asses the size of car tires,” which is how I see the kind of people who support school levies. Click here to review. Yes it made a ruckus all over Cincinnati and I knew it would. The husbands of some of those real estate agents took offense and sided against me. But they didn’t do it because I was wrong, but because they knew I was right, and they didn’t want to face the music. They wanted instead to continue on with the illusion that education was free and that so long as everyone bent over for the union, that there would be peace in the community. They were angry with me because they needed my unquestioning compliance to their welfare use of public education to keep it quiet, and seemingly honorable.

Meanwhile reform is coming to public education even as the unions are standing in the way of progress, and much of that progress can be seen in the online programs that are beginning to explode everywhere. When I started this fight against public education it was with the knowledge that I was able to do a better job at teaching my children than the public school I sent them to could. So my wife and I home schooled them for a while and let them graduate early with online classes in high school, so they wouldn’t have to waste their time. I still had to pay taxes to the local school, even though I was able to do a better job, and that didn’t seem fair. Why should I be forced to participate in a system I think is dysfunctional, socialist, and completely inept? Why should I be forced to pay several thousand dollars a year to a public school that won’t even let children make the shape of a gun on the play ground, but will teach them how to put a condom on a fake penis in the fourth grade? The reason is because the government has a cozy relationship with organized labor to make education a monopoly in America and to take the value of property in the form of taxes to fund it in order to fulfill the local requirements of Agenda 21. Click here for review.

Ladies and gentlemen if my actions seem extreme at times over the last three years it is because you have not yet come to realize what I realized after reading those obnoxious comments from the OEA in the Pulse Journal all those years ago. We are not fighting to prevent socialism from taking over our country. It has already happened. Instead, we are fighting for our freedom once again, just as we did in at the start of the country. My beginning in that process is to fight the monopoly that dominates the minds of our youth, in public education. It is simply a form of welfare to the parents who use it for a babysitting service while they are busy with their careers. Public education is welfare even to the idiots who pay over $5000 a year in property taxes so their little child can receive a “free” education. In reality, the $5000 is cheaper than most private schools which is why parents who claim that their property tax bill is something they are glad to pay for the benefit of their children are neglecting to report because they are simply counting on public education welfare to make them appear to be better parents than they actually are while saving a tone of money on private instruction in the process.

As it can be seen, a lot has changed in the last three years, and what used to be boisterous dialogue on behalf of the unions now is seeing residents fighting back with boisterous dialogue of their own. In three short years we have changed the argument, and in three more years the brick and mortar schools will be forced to adapt entirely new philosophies. More and more people will begin to take part in the K-through-12 programs online and those people will be much less inclined to pass school levies since they aren’t using the public schools. The unions will be forced to come to reality, because people for the first time in a century are sticking up for themselves and fighting back.

If the unions had shut their mouth after my visit to 700 WLW on that September 20th day in 2010 and not attempted to come after me personally, and not went after Kyle Olsen just for speaking the truth, they may not have pissed me off so much to start this website. But they did, and because of their desire to suppress any opposition I will see this through to their end. It moved from a level of civil discussion to thuggish attempts at intimidation, which is a big no, no. If I believed that the stake of our children were truly better off in the hands of public education I would leave the matter alone. But because I did teach my children at home and do know better, I know that public education is a scam, and it’s social welfare for the young, pretentious parents who are most of the time kids themselvs—or real estate agents trying to sell a house.

Now, as opposed to the date of that Pulse Journal article shown here, much has changed. There are more people than ever who have joined our little “League of Wisdom” that have gathered at this website and taken the argument to their own districts to achieve the same results. The heart of the argument is not what is good for kids. If it were, the answer would be for all parents to home school their children—because statistically, those children are learning at a much improved rate over public school children. Instead, government schools are just another welfare program designed to tie up the wealth of a school district in a complicated United Nations program agreed to by many politicians in Washington under the advice of The Department of Education created in 1979. For the politicians who make such agreements their intention is to use education as another welfare meal ticket that paves the way for their own re-elections. Free education to the politician has the same effect as food stamps, and other government programs that are given to citizens in hopes of buying a vote. Jobs under the same system are created to support the welfare system which adds proportionally to the 110 million people on welfare already. Add to that welfare number all the people using Social Security, Medicare, and hold jobs that are government sponsored, such as teachers, police officers, fire fighters, IRS agents, ATF agents, Homeland Security personnel, GAS employees, FBI agents, CIA agents, military personnel, TSA employees, postal workers, EPA workers, BMV workers, court-house workers, General Motors workers and on and on and on, it will be discovered that well over 80% of our country is dependent on government in some degree or another. Most of those jobs were created with the same intentions as welfare was, done under the mask of goodness and safety; the real intent was to create dependence, and bloc voting. Ultimately, this has placed before America the quagmire of freedom. We’re not fighting to keep socialism from our lives, it’s already everywhere in American society and has been for so long that nobody would know what to do without socialism. We are now fighting for a freedom that founded the country, because it has already been lost, and must again be recreated in the minds of our society. That will not happen by calling things like public education by names that don’t belong to them. Currently socialists will declare that public education is a “human right.” It is not. It’s a benefit to a society that decides it wants to do something nice for the citizens of their community. That niceness is cheapened when people are forced to participate in a system they see is a failure but can’t change it because so many people have come to depend on the government service, nobody can escape the obligation any longer. When that happens politicians have already bankrupted the system beyond repair, because it’s no longer appreciated, but is expected by a society that’s addicted to welfare not always by their own doing, but simply because they held their hand out to government and discovered that shackles were placed about their wrists which tied them forever to the greedy claws of government for all eternity, or the meager duration of the individual life to be consumed like wood on a campfire.

In the end public education consumes the lives of society and leaves behind only ashes. The memory of a once burning flame is all that remains, that is eventually lost in the darkness of a cold night. That cold night is the shroud of socialism that lingers always on the outskirts of freedom. And it is that socialism that is wrapped around American thought and has placed in the minds of most the shackles of a hand-out sold as a crutch, but intended to be political paralysis. From public education the paralysis migrates into the rest of our society and will continue until freedom fighters learn that by “playing by the rules,” is to handicap success on the battlefield of ideas. It is time that those of us in this new “League of Wisdom” stop worrying about hurting the feelings of the social parasites from the political left because in so doing, we are losing our country. Playing the “high” ground will not win the war of ideas, and it’s time to get down into the trenches and fight them where they hide—which is behind the masks of truth. And it starts by not being afraid of a little controversy.

Get ready for the new conservatives……..the old ones were a lot more passive. That won’t happen again, I promise.  And Monroe, the ‘League’ has your back.

Support H.R.1146: ‘Agenda 21’ attack on American life

Again, I am sorry dear reader. What I am about to say will disrupt your existence, your beliefs about the world around you, and the knowledge that your life is not so secure. My son-in-law and I spent the evening past at Kings Island enjoying roller coasters and the luxury of “blue” ice cream as we spoke about the various possibilities of World War III and observed the condition of the unaware crowds around us. These crowds were more concerned about the baseball scores of their local teams, the latest designer fashions, and whether or not Michael Phelps would win another gold medal in the Olympics. In fact, there was a pride shown by many in the medal count of the United States versus the medal count of China. That’s very good, acknowledging American pride will be needed in the days to come. It was an honest admission that many do still believe in American Excepetionalism even if they can only articulate it to themselves through the act of sports. Otherwise, these same people are completely unsuspecting, and naive to the forces in the world that want to see them, their families, and all their acquired wealth destroyed and set ablaze in favor of a global government. The biggest menace to American Excepetionalism is the United Nations who has a design for the world of their own and America is in their way as a traditional force, and they seek to weaken The United States superpower indirectly through taxation—legal looting of our money, gun legislation, and by eradicating the American concept of private property. To introduce this subtle attack listen to my friend Matt Clark from WAAM Ann Arber, Michigan discuss the latest round of tax proposals by The United Nations against The United States. Most of these strategies being explored by the United Nations can be summed up in Agenda 21—the United Nations plan for the 21st Century.

In answer to this silent attack, Congressman Ron Paul has proposed H.R.1146 quite a number of years ago –The American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2001. H.R. 1146 would remove the United States completely away from the United Nations.

The Bill reads, “We, the Citizens of the United States of America, do hereby declare that we support H.R. 1146, and we declare that we accept no other authority on earth but the Constitution of the United States of America and its Amendments. Furthermore, we refuse to have our country, the United States of America, be involved in and/or in support of, the affairs of the United Nations.” I would suggest that you sign the petition in support of H.R.1146 with the same voracity that you supported Chick-fil-A. The progressives behind the gay rights push against an individual business are the same minds that are pushing the destruction of all private property in favor of global government. Inaction on the part of Americans will lead to more violence, not less of it. Act now and you may avoid peril. Wait and you will find enemies at your doorstep—and soon.

Sign the petition here:

The United Nations were created to end the tendency toward World Wars. It was validated after World War II when President Roosevelt—a progressive wanna’ be dictator coined the term “United Nations” to refer the Allied Forces. The United Nations headquartered in New York City is an international organization whose stated aims are facilitating cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, social progress, human rights, and achievement of world peace. The UN was founded in 1945 after World War II to replace the League of Nations, to stop wars between countries, and to provide a platform for dialogue. It contains multiple subsidiary organizations to carry out its missions.

The League of Nations was proposed by progressive president Woodrow Wilson at the end of World War I. But at that time United States citizens refused to join with other nations with some silly “league.” Roosevelt was able to finally punch the concept through the American public a generation later after four presidential terms on the back of Social Security and other New Deal socialism from a weakened American populace tired from war. The United Nations was born.

There are 193 member states, in the United Nations including every internationally recognized sovereign state in the world but Vatican City. From its offices around the world, the UN and its specialized agencies decide on substantive and administrative issues in regular meetings held throughout the year. The organization has six principal organs: the General Assembly (the main deliberative assembly); the Security Council (for deciding certain resolutions for peace and security); the Economic and Social Council (for assisting in promoting international economic and social cooperation and development); the Secretariat (for providing studies, information, and facilities needed by the UN); the International Court of Justice (the primary judicial organ); and the United Nations Trusteeship Council (which is currently inactive). Other prominent UN System agencies include the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Food Programme (WFP) and United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The UN’s most prominent position is Secretary-General which has been held by Ban Ki-moon of South Korea since 2007. More about the United Nations can be found at Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations

The short of it, is that members of the United Nations in an “attempt” to prevent war and maintain world peace are making decisions that dramatically affect American sovereignty. The governing body is made up of pretentious personalities who are every bit as arrogant as a typical local school board, city council, or even a mayor’s court. They function from a belief that they know what’s best as members of the educated elite—in their minds—and are in a position to make decisions for all the members of the world.

In truth, the United Nations would not function without the United States. They need the money of America otherwise they would have nothing. The United States allows the United Nations to believe it holds sway over the entire world in the same fashion that a mooching family relative might use compassion to loot the wealth of a family while the moocher is too lazy to get a job. The United Nations and the countries that make them up are not equal to the United States, but in the governing body of the U.N. they are able to believe they are by using the money of American tax payers as their source of power and illusion.

That is not to say that the programs of the United Nations are not well intended, or that the people who make up the political body are not nice people who openly intend harm. I believe most of them are actually good people, but are simply functioning from a failed philosophy. With all their efforts, the bottom line of their endeavors at World Peace—the hippie movement’s greatest mantra—is to make the United States an equal player in the world so other nations won’t be so jealous of our power. The essence of United States support of the United Nations is the funding of our own destruction. World War III is already set on a stage. My son-in-law has done a wonderful job of creating the scenario that currently is underway even with all the millions upon millions of dollars America has poured into the failed United Nations. If the United Nations was created to prevent war, it has failed miserably and has simply lost its way and should be completely dismantled as ineffective, and foolish. You can read that plan for World War III here:

http://abundanttruth.wordpress.com/2012/08/02/a-world-war-iii-scenario/

Agenda 21 is very real and it is in your community. Many of the personalities in your local school system have been trained to carry it out, even if they don’t understand the direct connection to United Nation policies. The key word to watch out for is, “global marketplace.” When an elected official or even a public education superintendent uses terms like that, they are speaking about carrying out the implementation of Agenda 21.

Agenda 21 as a strategy seeks to loot the value of private property in the form of taxes so government can redistribute that wealth else ware. This is why there are progressive taxes on private property to fund public education. Government schools intentionally are using that money to train the next generation population on Agenda 21 topics—green technology, sexual diversity, political socialism, and the desire to “share.” Meanwhile the value of private property is drained and consumed by government under the umbrella of community care for children. The intended goal is to drain the wealth of those who live in suburban areas and allow them to be implemented into the housing system through public assistance in designated zones. Of course the superintendents who push higher taxes on school districts don’t know all this, because they have only been trained to look at their small piece of the pie. They are paid well to not ask questions-to do what they are told. But their policies were built by United Nations officials with the goal of destroying American private property. (I know it’s a hard pill to swallow, for more clarification read the article at the link below)

http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/312807/burn-down-suburbs-stanley-kurtz

Many on the political inside will roll their eyes at the proposal of ending United States participation in the United Nations. They would consider such an idea as being “backward” and “selfish.” Politicians like Bill Clinton and his gun grabbing wife will say that The United States will not go it alone in the world and it is the role of America to take the lead on world peace through the United Nations. But they are fools, and old hippies who have never came to terms with the futility of their progressive idealism. Their social experiments have been complete failures, and allowing them to embark in even more destruction will destroy more lives than it could ever save.

I’d advise you dear reader to support H.R. 1146. Make sure your friends and neighbors support it as well with a signature. The United Nations is not a good organization. It does not have American interests at its heart. The United Nations is in fact a failure, and those failures have been ironed over with American tax dollars. Without recognizing those failures inept, power-hungry, fools are continuing to push for an end of America as we know it with the implementation of Agenda 21, and well paid public employees like school superintendents who are turning a blind eye to the impact of their betrayal in trade for lucrative retirement deals and excessively high financial compensation. The push toward a global government is well underway in our government schools and city governments and it has been done quietly so not to upset the American people—because there is a real fear that those same American tax payers might learn of these plans and turn off the easy money that makes the United Nations possible before they have been subtly converted over into a new generation of obedient servants. That is why America must withdrawal itself from the United Nations.

If the world wants the help of America, it can adopt capitalism as its primary economic engine and compete like the states of North America do. Those 193 members of the United Nations can adopt the American Constitution and follow the path of America if they truly want prosperity for their own nations—and peace. But they don’t really want peace, or prosperity. The members of the United Nations want control–that fatal human weakness that seems to drive 90% of our population into politics to begin with. The silly human desire to have a desk and a nameplate that says a particular human being is important and holds power over a vast population is the primary driver of the U.N. members. Such a folly is a contaminate of human existence, and it is certainly a fault of the United Nations who have clearly overstepped their bounds with the initiative of Agenda 21. That fault cannot go unanswered by the American public and the declaration must begin with support of H.B.1146.

For tracking history on H.B.1146 click the link below. Remember, many members of the House and Senate suffer from the same power control illness of the United Nations so the bill is not moving through the legislative halls with any real level of seriousness, because many hope to sweep it under the rug. They will continue to do this unless Americans hold their feet to the fire.

“Can You Spare a Dollar”: President Obama begs for money

The Obama campaign has been very active—and desperate to find cash for his presidential race. On Monday July 30th and Tuesday July 31st I received many emails from their campaign, two of which are shown below. They need money. That’s all there is to it. I can’t say that I’ve ever heard of a campaign that is this desperate so far out from the actual election. This information is indicative of the type of people who simply spend massive amounts of money without an appreciation of what that money’s value is. Here is the first email.

Rich —

I’m not interested in the money race, so I’m just going to tell you how it is.

Our strength heading into November is going to be determined in large part by how much money we raise now. That’s why the fundraising deadline tomorrow at midnight is so important.

We can’t afford to lose — the stakes are just too high.

Can you stand the thought of a president who would take away guaranteed health coverage from people with pre-existing conditions, would be “delighted” to sign a bill banning all abortions, and would raise taxes on the middle class while lowering taxes for millionaires and billionaires?

Me neither.

Donate $3 or whatever you can right now to make sure we can keep Mitt Romney and other Republicans out of office:

https://my.democrats.org/July-Deadline

Thanks,

Jeffrey

Jeffrey Lerner
Political Director
Democratic National Committee

Here is the second email:

Rich —

Tonight’s deadline will be the most critical so far. It’s all going to come down to these last few months, and the budget decisions we make in August could make or break campaigns across the map.

Can you chip in $5 or more before midnight?

I’m gnawing through my pen caps over here. Watching the numbers come in is not exactly a stress-free task, and that’s because of what’s on the line.

It’s not just who will be in the White House for the next four years or whether we’ll keep a Democratic majority in the Senate. It’s what our country will look like for years to come: if our kids will have access to quality health care, education, and the careers they dream of, or if they’ll grow up in a country whose leaders shrug and say “you’re on your own.”

It’s in your hands. And I want to give those Democrats and the President the resources they need to get this done. Please give before the crucial midnight deadline:

https://my.democrats.org/July-Deadline

And tomorrow: new pens.

What this amounts to is panhandling. Obama and his campaign employees–which are incredibly overstaffed–are essentially saying to the mass population, “brother, can you spare a dime?” They are behaving like panhandlers on a city sidewalk looking for money to buy more booze and cigarettes. Asking for a dollar or three dollars to keep the Obama campaign afloat is a ridiculous proposition. I never get those kinds of emails from the Romney camp and I am in their system. They just don’t operate in the same fashion.

Where Obama is and why he is struggling to find money is that he has already spent the money from his big donors on tactics that haven’t worked, because the misleading activity the money was designed to cover cannot overcome the foolish behavior of the Obama Administration. Since Obama is a socialist, he has alienated most business owners with his preposterous Keynesian economic theory of expanding the financial system from the middle out. Obama is a complete failure as president because he believes in the wrong financial theories. The economy does not grow under the umbrella of communism, and Obama’s theories flow from that assumption. The middle-class does not create jobs. They work for people who do.

The people I know who have money for boats, long vacations, and huge retirement packages all work for government. It used to be the people I knew who possessed those kinds of benefits all worked for the car companies under the UAW labor unions—which is a communist concept. Those companies went out of business. The Firebird/Camero plant in Norwood was leveled in the late 80’s because the unions put them out of business. The Fisher Body plant in Hamilton went out of business around the same time, because the unions destroyed the business. Public unions that were implemented in Ohio around the same time as those automotive jobs were going away, were legalized, so today it is teachers, police and firefighters who have the kind of perky jobs that used to go to the automotive employees. Only the government employees can’t go out of business because government can simply raise taxes to pay for the extraordinary benefits they consume. When the auto manufactures went out of business it was because there cars were too expensive and didn’t last long enough. Nissan, Toyota, and Honda destroyed Ford, Chrysler, and Government Motors over market share because the Japanese cars were better and cheaper.

Obama and his gang of looters views union employees as the middle-class. But everyone can’t be a teacher, a cop, or a firefighter. We can’t have an entire society making up those jobs, because there has to be tax payers who have the money to fund it. Currently, we are at a time as is the evidence of all the school levies in Ohio, the layed off firefighters, cops are a direct result of public employees taking more money than their market value can support. Communists like Obama do not understand how to determine that value. They have an arbitrary value in their minds and they use the enforcement of government to make fiction a reality with higher taxes.

Obama is approaching his presidential campaign the way he has his last term as president. He spends money on theories that are economically unsound to force the middle-class to drive the economy. But it is not the middle-class that makes the economy work. They may spend the money they earn as laborers, but they do not begin those jobs from an idea in their heads. If they do, they are typically wealthy and are taxed at the highest tax bracket anyway. Obama’s plan is to tax those people more so the middle-class can believe they are equal economically to the job creators. And they aren’t.

The job creators have decided not to start new jobs because they don’t want to pay for Obamacare. They don’t want to pay higher taxes to all the community looters like teachers, firefighters, and cops who are simply overstaffed to “create” jobs. Job creators have stayed on the fence to avoid aggressive EPA regulations, a corrupt DOJ, and an overpowering IRS. If the money they work hard to make is simply going to be looted, they will not go to the trouble of creating those jobs. That is what Obama does not understand with his street bum attitude.

Obama has spent the country’s money into bankruptcy, and he has spent his campaign money into bankruptcy. His yield on that money has been a total failure by any investment analysis. He fails because he doesn’t understand the basics. The economists he listened to, the so-called experts were fools also. Just because they have a degree from some Ivy League school does not dictate their level of intelligence. It simply says they were members of an orthodox club of academics. It does not prove the merit of their theories. Only history can do that, and it has. Obama has spit in the face of the job creators and believes that the middle-class will fund the millions of dollars he will need to run a fall campaign. But they can’t, because they don’t have the money.

The real middle-class needs the job creators to provide them with jobs driven by market valued wages to provide them the money to spend on the economy. The money does not fall in the lap of the middle-class just because they show up at work, or while they are fishing on Cumberland Lake. Money has to be made, and if nobody is making the money, then of course the money will be hard to come by.

Romney is getting money for his campaign because job creators want Obama off their backs. It’s that simple. Nobody but the type of employees who want handouts wants a pan handler like Obama to be in charge of the Executive Office. All the money Obama has spent accomplished was putting a suit on a turd, to appear nice. But the money can’t make a turd into gold, and that’s what Obama thinks will happen. That is why he has failed and why all he can do is beg for money from people who don’t have it, and never will until somebody else gives it to them. Those people will not be giving Obama money this time. They already learned their lesson. Obama without all the fancy cloths and the White House as his residence is simply a bum. His mind is the same as a pan handler. Nice cloths and a staff of advisors could make a bum appear sophisticated if they shaved the bum and clothed him well. But such a person does not miraculously become intelligent because they dress nice. A bum is still a bum when all they know to do to make money is hold out their hand, which is precisely what the Obama Campaign is doing.

The Looters of Monroe: Magic tricks in public education

Administrators aren’t in the OEA. Do your homework before making such claims. There’s absolutely no affiliation.

The above quote came to me over the last weekend July 2012 from a person who works in the education industry. I can tell because their email address came from a local education institution. With the Monroe School Levy one week out, an examination of that comment is deserved. Because if it wasn’t noticed by the general electorate, the whole reason a school attempts a summertime election for education tax increases is to catch people flat-footed and on vacation. The education employees who live in the district along with the radical parents who want free education on the backs of the entire community will show up for the vote, while most everyone else isn’t thinking about schools or politics as they vacation over the summer. The intention of an August election is not to seek the honest opinion of the community. It is to hope that only one side shows up for the vote. Do not allow yourself to become confused by the looters of your community.

Monroe as a school district needs money to pay for their high teacher salaries, just like every school district in Ohio. Those salaries are high because public education has no competition, so they don’t have to perform at a true efficiency in testing results or financial management because the entire system is built on government interference. Sure, politicians have set testing standards, but as Lockland Schools have shown, educators will simply fudge the numbers to get the testing results they need to get their state money. Public schools will lie, cheat and steal to preserve their tax scam against the public. Their intentions are evident for all to see. It’s difficult to admit that our trusted schools are that deceitful, but they are. That is why Monroe is placing a tax increase on the ballot in August. That is also why Lakota’s superintendent Mantia put a levy on the ballot in her previous district of Pickerington last August, which barely passed. And Lakota is not putting a levy on the ballot in 2012, because they are concerned that in Butler County, too many conservative voters will show up at the polls to vote Obama out of office, and that means they are also likely to vote down the fourth Lakota attempt to raise taxes on the community to pay for high employee salaries. It’s not because school administrators are kind, or have seen the light. It’s because they wish to attack the community again when the numbers are more favorable to levy passage. They are not interested in the real concerns of the community. That’s why the Lakota School Board is spending $40,000 dollars on “Community Conversations” to a progressive Cincinnati group to turn neutral voters into “Yes” votes so the district can legally steal money from the 18,000 who have voted “NO” in the previous elections. The intent of spending tax payer money on such a program is to manipulate the vote. Not to find the truth of how the community actually feels. It’s about manipulation, not truth.

The person who sent me that comment above is testing the water to see how much we know about their education scam. So I’ll explain here what I said to them. When it’s said that administrators are not a part of the teachers union, and that I should get my facts straight before speaking, they say it hoping that I don’t know how their trick works. But unfortunately for them, I do. Most administrators are hired from within the ranks of the teaching profession, meaning they were teachers at some point in their past. There may be a few exceptions but for the most part, all education administrators are inbred within the union structure. When they become administrators they do not have the stomach to manage their costs the way all other companies do, because they are broken horses that the union rides to easy contract victories over management. There is a reason that there are legal constraints on who can be a superintendent of a public school. For instance, if Lakota wanted to pay a person like me, or any member of No Lakota Levy to be superintendent of Lakota, it would be illegal, because there are rules on who can hold that position and those rules were created by the OEA lobby in Columbus to protect them from such radical changes. By law, Lakota must hire a broken ex-teacher like Superintendent Mantia who will deep down to her core be loyal to the teachers who work under her, instead of the community that pays the bills with their taxes.

The dirty little secret is that administrative management in public education wants the teachers to make $50,000 to $60,000 per year for a 7.5 work day 9 months out of the year because it’s assumed that administrators will make more money, otherwise teachers would never strive to become members of management. This inadvertently drives up the wage cost of administrators. Most administrators in public education are making between $75,000 per year to $100,000 so of course they support the high union contracts because it drives up their wages when they leave the union to join management.

Superintendents are even more notorious. Many of them make more money than the governors of entire states. They make more just to watch a handful of school buildings. In fact Superintendent Mantia did her doctorial thesis on the very subject of how the Superintendent pool was so bad in the country because the pay was not very good–that the gap between the teaching profession and the teachers were not wide enough. Her observation was that teachers were not showing a desire to move into management and ultimately into superintendent positions because there wasn’t enough money as an incentive to lure them into management. As a superintendent, she drives up her own costs by supporting teacher contracts that are high, because as a manager she is expected to make more money—a lot more money. Between Lakota’s superintendent and the amount of money the school board has spent just on public relations in a one year period, the cost to the community is a half million dollars.

The public education scam costs a lot of money and that is what Monroe is dealing with. They are in financial trouble because they did not manage their labor costs. The administrators had no desire to manage their labor costs because they were all bred into the system from within, they have no direct competition, they have political support who will create laws that support their unions, and everyone working in education is taking a lot of money out of the community pot, and when they run out, they demand more. Monroe as a school district has an empty pot and the school is demanding that it be filled. They hope that not enough people who watch the money are paying attention and the levy will pass without a complete vote from the community. That’s why the newspapers aren’t talking about the levy, because the only people who are intended to know about the tax attempt are the people the school wants to show up and cast a vote.

A lot of people who work in the education industry are appalled by my comments because they come from the “outside.” They try to belittle my opinion because according to them, I do bullwhip acts and wear a cowboy hat, so I’m not qualified to speak about these matters. In reality, my experience with that side of my life have put me in contact with many people who are magicians for a living, and over the years I’ve learned how a lot of magic tricks are performed. A magician is all about deception, and getting people to look in one direction as opposed to where the actual problem is. So it’s very easy for me to see that the person who sent me that note is attempting to deceive me with directional persuasion. The attempt is to convince me that administrators are not in the union, which is true, so there is no direct correlation between administrators and union partnership. Magic tricks work because people tend to look for direct relationship between the rabbit in the hat and its disappearance. It’s what they don’t see that makes the trick happen.

The levy in Monroe is about the lack of management of their labor costs. If voters don’t show up and vote the tax increase down, then no management of the community resources will occur. Like piranhas in an Amazonian river the education employees at Monroe will proceed to give themselves raises and dump money onto their lavish lifestyles in a magic trick performed against the community. And the magic trick begins in an August election when most everyone else is looking someplace else. A wave of the magic wand and—poof—more money will appear from the community for the looters of public education to plunder. Monroe will then wonder why the only business they have in their community is the Hustler store and Traders World as high taxes will push away current and future investment by those who pay the most taxes—the business owner—who is almost always the victim of the magic tricks and finds the rabbit in their laps hidden from the public who believe that the magicians of public education actually performed magic, when all it ever was—was a trick.

Bill O’Reilly Wants Gun Control?: The true ‘THIN BLUE LINE’

Bill O’Reilly is not alone in his confusion over the role that government plays in the gun debate. There has been a lot said about his heated debate with Rep Chaffetz over stricter gun laws. Bill O’Reilly the popular author and TV reporter on Fox News is typically a conservative leaning investigator, but due to his roots in working class Levittown, New York, he has a soft spot for labor unions, and due to the fact that he’s lived and worked around New York City for a good part of his life, where they have banned guns completely, his view of the outside world is somewhat tainted.

O’Reilly blew up recently on the air with Chaffetz stating that while he did support American ownership of firearms, O’Reilly thought that the FBI should be contacted when heavy weapons or ammo are purchased. On the surface, what O’Reilly says makes sense; law enforcement should know what’s going on and what they are getting involved with if they are required to apprehend a suspect like James Holmes who has been stockpiling assault rifles and ammunition ahead of an intended shooting spree. O’Reilly’s reasoning is that if the FBI had the ability to know that James Holmes was buying large amounts of ammunition that law enforcement might have been triggered to watch Holmes more closely and therefore might have stopped the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting before it happened.

People who live in gun banning cities like Chicago, Washington D.C. and New York share with people who live in gun banning countries such as Canada and England the naïve assumption that law enforcement is always on the side of the people they are sworn to protect. These people believe that law enforcement should have 100% of community cooperation yielding all freedoms to the scrutiny of those law enforcement officers. Typically the people who are worst in this complete yielding of their personal freedoms to government authority have lived in the coastal cities at some point in their life and already had to face the concessions of living in those gun banning zones, so the premise of their argument is corrupted by their experience.

In the fly over states, gun ownership is a fact of life. Virtually everyone I know who does not live in a metropolitan area treasures their guns. Many own 3 to 5 per household, and these are typically very intelligent people who have very good jobs, raise very good families, and are overall good citizens. There are probably as many guns within 10 miles of my home as there are on a small military base, and that’s good. That’s exactly how it should be. In my community there isn’t much for police to do except break up domestic violence situations and petty theft. People in my community do not shoot each other when someone cuts the grass over on the property of their neighbor. Generally, people get along nicely, even when some of those people support school levies and others do not. We take our differences out at the ballot box, but generally are kind to each other while in public. Part of the reason for the peace and prosperity in rural areas are because of the large amounts of guns.

Cops are not shot when they come to our doors in suburbia. They are respected even when all they really have to do is sit on the side of the road and give us traffic tickets. There is a respectful tension between the general public and law enforcement. But there is not fear, because we are armed, and so are they.

But law enforcement by its title takes their orders from the political system that is in place, and if the political system is corrupt, like we all know it is abuses are bound to occur. In areas where guns are confiscated, stories of police violence against citizens goes up dramatically. Now, in my family there are several members who are cops, and one of my nephews who I have always been close to wants to be a cop. So what I say is taken in context and from experience. I have personally employed cops, and have known some of them as good friends, and with all that said I would not surrender my life completely to them under any circumstance. I do not trust them to make decisions on my behalf that will dictate the direction of my life, the lives of my family, and my property. I respect them and the danger of their job, but that is also what they are being paid for. I don’t give them a right to my life and property in the name of safety, I don’t give them the right to molest my wife and daughters, and I certainly don’t give them the right to draw a gun on me because they have a tendency to overact with grand theatrics when danger is present. I’ve seen this kind of behavior in more than one fight outside of bars where they show up on the scene and see a person laying face down in a pool of blood and assume the guy still standing did something wrong. Cops just like most people panic at the site of blood and guns, and they let their fears get away from them often. Cops are dangerous under this condition. Many of the gun laws created have been created under the pretense of panic where law makers have pandered to police officer’s fears.

Before the baby shower that my wife and daughter where holding for my youngest daughter over the previous weekend they sent me up to the local convenient store to purchase ice for the multiple coolers that were to be filled with drinks. I found myself in line behind a derelict of a man who was buying lottery tickets. Once he had his tickets he left and I was able to pay for my ice and get the key from the attendant. I went outside to get my ice out of the freezer and found that the man with the lottery tickets was sitting in his car scratching off the numbers. As I pulled out my bags of ice, the man cried out in glee from his car. “I won—I won!”

He jumped out of his car as though he had just won a million dollars and held the tickets up for me to see. “It won me some big money today! I won twenty dollars! I was afraid I was going to have to borrow money from my brother-in-law for cigarettes, but now I don’t have to!” As I loaded up my ice I couldn’t help but smile at the man who wasn’t any older than I was. “Now, if that happened every day, you’d never have to work another day in your life,” I said. He looked at me with confused attempts to connect neurons in his brain and relate something in his life that would help him understand my context. But my comment was completely foreign to him. I might as well have spoken a foreign language to him, because his lifestyle and mine are so far apart they might as well be from different countries. As I watched him run in to cash out his lottery tickets and come back out with a box of cigarettes and a toothless smile from ear to ear I thought—that was a guy I don’t want to have a gun—because he’s not smart enough to carry one.

It is people like that guy who police worry about when they have to arrest them for domestic violence because they beat the hell out of their bother-in-law over cigarette money, or had sex with their wife’s sister because they were all drunk and passed out on the floor of their smoke infested trailer. The wife erupts into a violent range wanting to kill the man for his reckless sexual exploits. It is often the poor and destitute who have trouble with guns, just like they have trouble with money. I have tried to employee such people for years, and they often lose their jobs because of attendance—they just don’t have the ambition to get out of bed. Many of them would rather use government regulation and unemployment benefits to keep from having to show up for a job, and because they are essentially lazy, they have low quality people in their lives and a low quality life style, and it’s there choice.

I should not be restricted from owning military grade weapons because of people like that lottery ticket guy. I should be able to have the guns of my choice in case politics fail completely and I need an equalizer against tyranny. Hopefully, just by having the gun, it will mean I never have to use it. But in not having it, police abuse and political cover-ups will occur, because they do now—and always have. My life is more important than the collective sum of the lottery ticket guy, or the nature of a politician’s congressional district, or presidential reign. All those kinds of things are just blips on the radar screen and don’t mean much in the scheme of things.

The FBI, the CIA, the ATF, the Department of Homeland Security, the TSA and our local police officers cannot be trusted to do the right thing 100% of the time. The need for the gun is for the 1% of the time that humans fail their fellow-man with the knowledge that one group has power over another. When the officer cuffs a man for a traffic warrant late on a Saturday night and discover his wife is in a compromised position and is quite attractive and unprotected, they may offer to turn the man loose if the woman has sex with them. Yes it does happen. The wife may want not want her husband arrested, or maybe going to jail will bankrupt them so she might be inclined to do as the officers suggest. I know of cops who have sat in my backyard and bragged about this kind of stuff. The arrested man at that point should have the right to defend his wife, and is property from intruders. But because the man is handcuffed in the back of a patrol car and the law has taken possession of his home, the police are in complete command to dictate the terms of release or apprehension. If the police know that the man is not a registered gun owner who might seek revenge for the indiscretion, they are much more inclined to abuse their power and take advantage of the wife.

If the man is a gun owner, the police will treat the man with much more respect. They’ll be much more careful with any suggestions that man might interpret as threatening because after the court hearings are over, they don’t want that man to come after them for revenge. So they treat everyone with more respect. That respect comes because of the gun.

The bottom line is no government agency needs to know any more about our lives than they need for basic government operation. They do not need to have the ability to have complete control over the American population in times of martial law. The President of the United States does not have the right to impede our rights over some political panic. And the weakest links of our society cannot be allowed to create legislation to keep certain guns out of their hands which punishes all of society. If we allow the weak links of our culture to determine the levels of our freedoms then we might as well consider ourselves a conquered civilization.

People like Bill O’Reilly are well-intentioned, but they are corrupted with the gradual erosion of progressive politics that have made such slight indiscretions seem minor and reasonable. When gun grabbers suggest that the Constitution was written in a time when the only guns were balls of lead and single shot muskets they are missing the point. America is not a land of law run by lawyers, and the Constitution is not a legal document as typical lawyers might consider it. It’s a political philosophy that has law draped from it as decoration. The decorations can all be removed yet the structure is still intact. It does not matter if the gun is a single shot musket, or an automatic machine gun, the need for guns in society are to equalize all participants with the ability to wipe temptation from the minds of the would-be thief, the looting politicians, and the ruthless dictator.

The government does not need to know what, or when we buy something or what we intend to do with it. It’s none of their business. Having more law enforcement officers does not make me feel safe. Only a gun at my own hip, or the guns next to my bed, or in my garage make me feel safe, and the need for them is an acknowledgment of human philosophy that understands the true nature of people. Gun control is social engineering that assumes that the people who look over our records, and monitor our activities are superior in their decision-making skills to society in general, and that just isn’t the case. In fact, it couldn’t be further from the truth. For those who assume that dangerous weapons are OK to ban from the public the meaning of the weapons are lost in the discussion. No—we do not need an AK47 to shoot a deer. But we may need it if a major storm comes through and knocks out power for days on end and bands of looters roam from house to house to rape, pillage, and destroy the property and lives of the inhabitants while the police are overwhelmed with the emergency. That is the time when all you have is yourself, and your guns to keep tragedy from making another victim of a family that trusted the law completely even though all the rules of society changed the moment the power went out. In times like that, more than a .22 six shot rim fire will be needed. That’s when the big guns come out, and the threat of those guns becomes the true “Thin Blue Line,” that was always the reality but never acknowledged.
