Inalienable

Odds are when you were in Public School you were not taught the definition of this very important word.

So here we go:

Inalienable

Not subject to sale or transfer; inseparable.

That which is inalienable cannot be bought, sold, or transferred from one individual to another. The personal rights to life and liberty guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States are inalienable. Similarly, various types of property are inalienable, such as rivers, streams, and highways.

inalienable

adjective incapable of being conveyed, incapable of being sold, incapable of being transferred, nontransferable, not able to be conveyed, quod abalienari non potest, secured by law, unable to be bought, unable to be disposed of, unforfeitable, untouchable
Associated concepts: inalienable lands, inalienable rights

I beg your pardon Justice Stevens, only as I’m polite, but the Second Amendment which is actually the Second Inalienable Right as listed in the Bill of Rights cannot be “Repealed”.  The only reason it appears as an Amendment to the Constitution is for recording purposes.  As you should know, Sir, there was a vociferous debate regarding the placement of them as Amendments rather than leaving them as a stand alone document for the very reason we are dealing with such idiocy today.  Many of the Founding Fathers knew that the remaining Monarchists (about 30% of the population), most of whom had surrendered to the inevitable and thrown in with the ‘Federalists’, would continue to try to position these Inalienable Rights as Amendable by Man.  The idea of one’s right being given to them by other men is the tenent of Monarchy as it is the foundation of Socialism/Communism.  Without one man being able to force another man to do what he wants there would be no governing paradigm resembling the above.  It is always about force, Mr. Stevens.  Our Freedom rests on being able to resist it.
This is exactly why Free Speech and an Armed Populace is integral to a Free Society.
The Bill of Rights was debated down to its simplest form so Every Man could understand it, rich and Poor alike.  Simple, Powerful and Direct.  The Bill of Rights is the Maxim for Human Freedom.
It has been proven over and over throughout history and continues to be illustrated around the World.
The absence of an armed population, given enough time, always ends in Tyranny.  We do not need to repeat the errors of the past which has demonstrably resulted in Oppression, Death and Destruction of Human life.
We should be past that here in the United States.
But, Mr. Stevens, thank you for your input.  It’s important for us to remember that people like you still exist… and always will.  It’s also important for all of us to recognize that such an oppressive mindset can rise to the highest levels of our government.  We need to be vigilant and more careful.

Is Trump Serious?!

This must also be what the Chinese are thinking right now.
If Trump is genuine regarding Tariffs on Steel and Aluminum coming from outside the United States it must be considered Economic War.
The debilitating effects of Tariffs are well documented following Smoot-Hawley.

I am guilty of under estimating the negotiating skill of this man… and I must remind myself that he is a graduate of Wharton School of Business.  I must remind myself that he Knows where this will go.

So let’s assume this is the opening shot across the bow of an international trade war.

The White House is desperately trying to keep the focus of proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum on the increased cost of goods which will be directly passed to the consumers.  (This is also how corporate taxes work… but that’s for another day.)  The Maison Blanc is currently sending Peter Navarro out to sell the tariffs with talking points implying there will be ‘only a penny increase on the cost of a six-pack of beer’ and ‘only $45 to the cost of a new car’… I sh*t you not.  Navarro knows better, too.

Why do I find this an amazing point in time? Because once you read a bit about the Smoot-Hawley Tariffs (linked above) we imposed with only the best of intentions during the 30’s and the resulting consequence of extending the duration of the Great Depression you quickly realize it’s not the direct impact which hurts the most.

It’s the Indirect Impact.

It’s the Retaliation.

It so happens that we American’s have had our productivity and living standards vastly increased by our ability to access inexpensive goods from… China.

Chew on that for a second.

Now think about the fact that China is a poisonous concept based in Communism/Socialism that exploits its population as life is cheap under such a horrid Governing Theory.  It is also an open secret that China must… must… create a quarter of a million new jobs every month or they risk a full-out pitchfork rebellion… not just the condemnation of a pathetically partisan Socialist Press as we endure here in The United States.

Which of us can weather  the economic impact we both know will result?

This is nothing short of War.

I’m not sure it’s not time… but I’m not sure it is.


Deterrence

Deterrence:

the act or process of deterring: such as
a : the inhibition of criminal behavior by fear especially of punishment
b : the maintenance of military power for the purpose of discouraging attack

This is Why the 2nd Amendment, the Inalienable Right to Bear Arms, is integral to your Freedom.  The 2nd Amendment is simply a recognition of a Right every Human possesses.

Inalienable:

incapable of being alienated, surrendered, or transferred

It cannot be taken away, or surrendered by any man.

You have these rights.  Those in charge can pretend to take them away, and continue to try to convince you they can, but they are yours and will always be so.

The Founding Fathers understood this and made sure to put them in a place everyone would see them.

But Why?

Were they Gun Nuts?  Did they Hate Kids?  Were they just a bunch of Idiots?

Let’s think this through…

Simply put, The Inalienable Right to Defend yourself Deters all manner of bad behavior.

The Right to Bear Arms deters; criminals from breaking into your home, criminals from robbing you on the street, criminals for confiscating your home, criminals from hurting your family, criminals from enslaving you, criminals from oppressing you in every way imaginable.

The ‘compromise’ we have made with those who wish to wield power over us via physical or legal thuggery is deterrence… not prevention.  This is because we recognize there must be certain agreements in place to make sure we don’t inadvertently physically infringe on our neighbors individual rights.  We call this Government.  But our form of Government is designed to be very, very, slow.  Our form of Government is designed to promote the solution to our disagreements be found locally and personally by intentionally being slow to respond.  It is also designed to recognize our right to defend that which is ours beginning with our lives, our bodies and our property.  But most importantly, it is designed to give Individuals every opportunity to resist it.

The tacit acknowledgement of consequences, should enough of us choose to resist our Government, is the only thing standing in the way of our returning to historically ugly types of Rule such as the rest of the world still suffer today.

In the United States bad people, such as racists, thieves or politicians, must think hard before infringing on your Inalienable Right to Live Free.

But it doesn’t mean they won’t try.

That’s the Beauty, the Brilliance…

One doesn’t even have to possess a weapon.  The idea that someone around you might be armed is often enough to discourage, or deter, a Bad Actor from Acting Badly.

All of us must start by understanding that the 2nd Right in the Bill of Rights is not only responsible for the very Freedom you enjoy as you read this but assists in protecting it from this point forward.  Those who pine for power and want to Force you to do what they think is right without Argument or Recourse wish nothing more than to remove that Right, that Obstacle to their control, from you any way they can.

It’s that simple.

Sadly, our publicly educated Masses have been indoctrinated in Socialism, a sinister governing theory crafted by the 19th Century’s disenfranchised aristocrats, which promises equality with a deadly wink and a nod.  Most of us do not consider ourselves Communists/Socialists and if we do its most often because our educators have intentionally hidden the history of this poisonous idea from us.  We have been brought up being taught to believe those in positions of power are magically no longer human… Somehow our Politicians, Teachers and Law Enforcement Officers are not fallible, not self-interested, not ignorant or ill educated in any way.  We have been programmed to see them as beyond reproach and existing only for the well-being of others.  We have been taught that because of this we should obey them without question.  We have been convinced that we humans have somehow evolved to a more enlightened existence… even when presented with contrary evidence every waking moment of our lives.

In other words, too many of us have been Fooled, and because of that we are now being employed as Useful Idiots.

It is up to the Few of us left who understand what The United States means to the World to educate our friends and neighbors about American Exceptionalism and why we are the Brightest Beacon of Light for the Global Oppressed.  We have to explain the reasons so many of those outside of this great nation founded During the Age of Reason often sacrifice everything to live out their lives here.  We have to shout out loud why so many wish to escape to The United States of America…  And we must resolutely explain why any effort to reverse our unique course and return to the Oppression, Death, Destruction and Slavery of Mankind which is currently called Socialism must be resisted at every turn.

It is incumbent upon us to communicate how our Bill of Rights in its entirety makes us Great as it accommodates the permanent state of Human imperfection.

We should ask our friends to look around… and have them ask; “Why does no other Country on Earth Dare to recognize the Individual Human Right to such Freedom?”

The answer is historically obvious.  Those in power are fully aware that such and acknowledgement would drastically and permanently diminished that power.  Those in Control always wish to Remain in Control.  Our recognition of our Inalienable Rights by enshrining them in the First 10 Amendments of our Founding Documents was expressly designed to deter such behavior.

We’re Exceptional exactly because we have broken with Man’s long History of Oppression and Slavery.  We have broken with the Reign of Kings, Divine Right to Rule and Holy Blood Lines.  We have defied thousands of years and thousands of previous governing theories to create a miracle.

It is clear and easy to understand, unless you intentionally choose not to.

In the end…

You can no more ban individual’s weapons than you can ban individual’s speech because both are essential ingredients in the Worlds only recipe for Individual Freedom.

At this time we are seeing both being threatened.


The Value of Outrage

Not the Value of Freedom.

It has become clear this morning our Public Schools have abandoned the mission of educating our youth in areas of study such as History, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Instead, the curriculum rests entirely within the Power and subsequent Value of Outrage.

Sadly, as is the new normal, the Media is providing fuel to this negligence.

I’m actively watching Florida Students being used as useful tools for a Socialist Left who would prefer the rights of American Citizens to defend themselves against their ideas be removed from our nation’s Bill of Rights.

I have yet to see a single student asked by our ‘interested’ press to explain the First and Second Amendments followed by the other Eight they shelter.

Frankly, I’ve yet to hear anything other than emotion nourished by ignorance.

No one likes it when our friends and family are murdered… regardless of how it happens.  This is not new to the Human experience.  And it will never go away.  Not ever.

But given this latest demonstration of a profound failure to understand what the idea of The United States means to the World I can only think it is no wonder that American Exceptionalism is now considered a Slur given we have made such a concerted effort to create so very many Unexceptional Americans.

If the Children are our Future, we should Care More.

I may be wrong…

I will wait.

However, I am accustomed to disappointment.  World History has provided that discomfort.

I am not drinking today… this is a sober moment.


Gun Control Now!

After decades I’ve had a change of mind….

I have suddenly found myself on the side of those crying for Gun Control.

It is clear we need it.

In fact, it is clear the world needs it.

I have a proposal that would have saved 100’s of millions of humans lives in the past and, without question, hundreds of millions in the future.

Since it is demonstrably clear that if Liberals ban guns only Liberals will have guns…
Ban all those individuals and groups whose ideology resides within the spectrum of Socialism/Liberalism/Mentally Insane.
That’s it.  I know, I know… seems too simple.  But most often the simplest answer is the “safest” answer.

So, the groups of persons forbidden to own firearms include but may not be limited to (as the Left often change their names due to the rest of us figuring out who they are…) Marxists, Fascists, Statists, Leftists, Socialists, Social Democrats, Democrat Socialists, Liberals (The U.S. definition), Neo-Nazi’s, Progressives, Democrats, Neo-Marxists, Anarchists, Monarchists, Theocrats, Eco-Terrorists, Oligarchs, Authoritarians, Totalitarians, Communists, Nihilists, National Socialists and of course National Democratic Socialists…. oh, and any Union Leaders or Community Organizers.

As far as determining who fits into these groups we can develop an easy to fill out psych profile administered by any gun dealer at their discretion.  If it comes back positive for the above mentioned groups ideology then the person should be refused a weapon of any kind.  In fact, the pen in their hand should be immediately removed from their possession as well as their belt and shoe laces.  Then their name should be passed around by the shop owner to every other gun shop within a 3500 mile radius.

While this would certainly not stop gun violence it would be a good start.  And, considering those committing the crimes, it would stem the tide of mass shootings while preserving our ability to protect ourselves from tyrannical government these people directly and indirectly promote should the need ever arise.  Perfect… Crazies don’t get guns and the Second Amendment remains intact for the brave who might actually defend the land of the free…

Then we can all drink a little easier.

I’d Rather Die On My Feet than Live On My Knee

You’ve now made it Anti-us.

This is the Wrong Fight to pick…

The current Take a Knee effort protesting Law Enforcement across the United States is something to behold. While I’m not excited about the President of the United States weighing in on what was being handled just fine by the rest of us, our market reaction of not tuning in and not spending money on NFL (now soon to be MLB) games was doing its job, once again he’s right…

This is not a Fight the NFL (and soon MLB) wants to pick with Trump. Why? Because they’re really picking it with the rest of us, whether we like Trump or not.

What is this really about?

It’s about the consequences of being Free.

And it’s about those who don’t like there being any.

Crime, in total, is out of control in this country.

If you look at the foundations of the serious issues confronting THE ONLY NATION ON EARTH THAT ELEVATES THE INDIVIDUAL ABOVE GOVERNMENT AND ATTEMPTS TO PROMOTE, PROTECT AND PRESERVE THAT INDIVIDUAL’S FREEDOM AND LIBERTY REGARDLESS OF RACE you will find them all built atop of Crime.

Which brings us to The Social Justice issue and the Progressive Left’s attempt to turn their poisonous Socialist Ideology into a Race.  They want everyone to believe that to be African-American, Latino, Hispanic, pick your minority, is to be a Socialist.

Inversely… To be Anti-Socialist is to be a Racist.  To believe in Law and Order is to be Racist.  To believe The United States is the Greatest Country on Earth… is to be Racist.  Worse yet, if you’re a minority and you’re any of the above you’re a self-hating Racist.

This Social Justice issue is really based on individuals who desire to commit crimes and not be held accountable because… Disenfranchisement?… Race?… Gender?… Religion?… Education?… Height?… Hair Color?… And to do this they must control speech.  They must find offense in all things.  They must silence reasoned debate because they know they cannot win under such circumstances.

The Truth is the above mentioned individuals do not want to be held accountable to anyone… for anything… ever… because they are Anti-American and Anti-Capitalist… they expect to be given, not earn, while remaining free to do whatever they wish to whomever they wish free of consequences.  They are Socialists, or being led by Socialists, who desperately want to remove any social construct that does not lead to their Utopian Dream of Securing Power over Others.  Their goal is your Slavery to the State.

At a minimum they are the Useful Ignorant who believe Socialism is an answer.  Well Socialism is an answer, just not one they will want once they get it.

They see Government as the Savior.

That fact alone is the most dangerous as they strive to provide Government with ultimate, unchecked, power to Force.  If Government is the Savior… then why restrain it in any way?

They genuinely believe Government should not be restrained in its endless pursuit of ‘Good’… and they see themselves as those who ‘govern’.

All of the Liberties and Freedoms you enjoy as an American Citizen, all the Rights your Fathers, Mothers, Brothers and Sisters, and there’s anon, fought for and died for, must be surrendered… in the name of “Good” Government.

The very Founding of America must be seen as an aberration, a scar on the evolutionary system of slavery and oppression by those ‘better than us’ which man had spent thousands of years perfecting before 1776.  Understand, Liberal’s have no problem with Slavery so long as it doesn’t discriminate based on race and is Approved by the Democratic Mob.  When you have two wolves and a lamb voting on what’s for dinner, they are the wolves.

This is where we are today and it’s frightening.

This is what your taking a knee represents when doing so at the sound of our National Anthem.

Make no mistake, you have the right to do it.  But that’s the point… you’re protesting that you have the right to do it.  Your protest is designed to destroy the very Freedom you think you’re promoting.  If you were to spend even a modicum of time contemplating what you are doing your head would explode from the confusion.

I don’t care what you’re being told… No one is being made to sit in the back of the bus.  No one is being denied essential rights as enumerated in the Bill of Rights.  No one is being denied the opportunity to excel and reap the rewards this country has to offer its citizens provided they makeaneffort.

Yet the richest among us take a knee.

The most successful, most accomplished and greatest examples of what an individual can do if effort is applied… take a knee.

Then you tell us why we should get down on ours.

And then, as if to add insult to injury… you lecture the rest of us about why We should be Ashamed for not wanting to watch you play a game, a F-ing Game, and shower you with a righteous praise for your Anti-American, Anti-Capitalist, Anti-Law Enforcement, Anti-Us, statement.

I’m willing to fight alongside you when genuine injustice occurs.  But you lose me when you find injustice in everything.  And you have lost me.

Those who wish to destroy America have gained unbelievable level’s of power in this nation.  What you haven’t figured out yet is They don’t care about you.  In fact, they are the very same people who protested your college sports because you guys received too much attention and money for your programs versus all of that money being spent on academics.  They are the same people who despise you and your way of life.  They look down on you, your family, your education… even where you’re from.  They disdain everything that you are as an individual… your success… your riches… your effort… your physical prowess…

And yet you kneel for them.

I suggest you think a bit more about who is really on your side.  It’s me.  It’s Us…  U.S.

The people who Hate you, who Hate all of Us, want this fight because you shouldn’t be enjoying the lives you’re enjoying.  They don’t believe you DESERVE those lives.

And yet you’re on your knees for them.

Well… They want you on your knees.  They like you on your knees.  They expect you on your knees.

I don’t care what you think about Trump.  When Trump has long gone, this Ideological Battle will rage on.

It’s simple.  People like me want you to enjoy all the benefits freedom and liberty afford you.  I want you to be all you can be without my interference… so long as you do not interfere with me.

That is not what the people who promote this protest of Americanism, Capitalism and Law Enforcement want.

They want the unchecked power to Force you to do what They Think is Right.

Don’t be Useful to them.

Stop allowing yourself to be used by those who profess to care but have only intentions of ruling over you.

Get off of your knees and…

Stand the F*ck Up!

Fight for the Freedom and Liberty, the very IDEAS this country was founded upon and lost so many lives to perfect and protect.  If you do, I will fight with you.

“I would rather Die on my Feet than Live on my Knees.”

How about you?
