Anti-gun demagogues are against the right of self defense.

April 28, 2018

Call it pro-self defense, not pro-gun. The right to defend your family. The audience will catch on fast. We’ll see how fast the NRA picks up on it, or even better GOA – Gun Owners of America. GOA is much better on the 2A. The fascists (call them what they are) hate guns, and they hate families, and what they really hate is self-defense. Call their program self-defense inequality. Change the discussion by changing the vocabulary.

The issue is self defense, not the tool. Guns are an effective tool for self defense. But it appears to me that talking about self defense may be more effective, it brings the argument to what the gun phobia crowed want to avoid. So-caled “Anti-gun laws” make it harder to defend yourself.

There is a “departamento” in Honduras called Olancho where my wife lived for awhile. EVERYBODY in Olancho has guns, closets full of them, and they all know how to use them. My stepdaughter lived there for awhile with a Peace Corps boyfriend. She says there’s no problem there, people are polite, but do not cause a problem. Omar Mateen at a bar in Olancho might get ONE shot off before he went to hell.

And they carry. Concealed, openly, they carry big long belts of ammo strapped over their shoulders when they go for walks. I’d bet there’s not even one bar or sign in any store in the town that says “No Guns Allowed”. They would just laugh at it. Nobody bats an eye or raised an eyebrow when somebody walks around like that.

When my stepson visits Honduras, he tells them he’s from Olancho. That’s pretty good protection from trouble.

Olancho had a gang problem for a few days, one of the big name gangs tried to start up something there. The day came they killed their first kid. All five stepkids with my wife were born there.

That kid’s father gathered a couple of friends and eliminated the gang problem overnight. No more gangs.


I think I’ve shared here an incident with my wife once upon a time, this event was in Tegucigalpa while she was waiting for a bus with the oldest boy, when he was still young. A guy from Olancho came up to her, opened his jacket to show his gun, and “politely asked” if she’d like for him to take her son.

He didn’t know that she had a photographic recall of her times of political campaigns in that area. He knew her, she didn’t know him. Something else he didn’t know too. Facing the guy with the gun, she passed her son’s hand to his.

But as he walked away, her son in hand, she got her own concealed carry out of her purse. As she tells it she yelled bloody murder at the guy while she had her gun pointed at his head at close enough range still. In Spanish, like you m-f’er, if you got any balls, take him on now right now! (I guess it was a Make-My-Day Eastwood type dare). Because…

And she lit into a tirade. Her memory kicked in and she yelled out his name, his street address in the town where he lived, named his wife and kids, his mother and where she lived, and a few things more. The kidnapper let the kid go pretty quick.

She said at that time, a taxi driver who was happening by “saved the situation” by yelling at her to get in, to take her home. By “saved the situation” I presume she meant that the taxi driver saved her from shooting the guy dead on the spot.

The next day she got a call from the guy’s wife pleading for his life, and her own too.

>> Yes, there were a LOT of kidnappings of kids those days in Central America. Mainstream press were shocked when people in one town lynched an American girl who had been in the town about a day as if the townspeople were backward Indians or something. Stupid American Press. Not just evil.

My wife confided in me that there were Congressmen involved in the kidnappings, mostly for organs. One Christian ministry took evidence to Congress that there was an actual black market in San Francisco for human organs. Lots of money involved.

Her high school age daughters had a friend that disappeared one day. A few days later at the border crossing with Guatemala she yelled from the car at the border guards that she was being kidnapped and the goons were arrested.


CPF9898 Water water everywhere, and not a drop to drink

April 28, 2018

I am not a rich Californian, and I do not fall for just anything, but fluoride is an industrial poison. There has never been a real study that shows it does anything against tooth decay. Au contraire for consistent brushing and flossing.

Disclaimer: My folks never got me to floss and I only tried flossing once. Sue me. They also say rinse your mouth out with water after eating, which I do every time, and brush after EVERY meal. Withing 10 minutes.

Disclaimer #2: I don’t think Californians have the smallest clue about what they’re talking about, even the once a year they may utter something that’s right.

The story got viraled in New England where some industrial plant had let out some fluoride into local water and in that town supposedly the kids had less tooth decay. Industry blew the story across the nation, then of course the governments started stealing YOUR money to BUY the fluoride from the industry. A poisonous waste product becomes a profitable by product.

The average number of decayed, missing, and filled permanent teeth (DMFT) per child was 2.0 in the fluoridated areas, 2.0 in the nonfluoridated areas, and 2.2 in the partially fluoridated areas. The percentage of decay-free children in the fluoridated, non fluoridated, and partially fluoridated areas was 34%, 35%, and 31%, respectively.

The report at the link points also to the difficulty of getting the raw data used by NIDR (National Institute of Dental Research) that shows this. Maybe not quite as difficult as getting an honest answer out of Obama holdovers in the FBI and DOJ, or any evidence of Russian-Trump collusion, or chemical weapons use in Dhouma, but nonetheless. I do not fall for bogus claims of global warming either.

The New York TimesĀ  – Where Democracy Goes to Die

Orban – Champion of sane governance

The New York Times is now carrying a hit piece on the overwhelming winner of the most recent elections in Hungary.

Amazingly, their paragraph to describe thrice elected Orban, is not so far off, including its description of the dying West:

“As a young man, Orban fought against Bolshevism. Western liberal democracy was the Promised Land. Now it has morphed into the enemy. The West is the site of European cultural suicide, the place where family, church, nation and traditional notions of marriage and gender go to die. ”


But of course, the article lifts up the guy who finances socialism around the world, is the epitome of hedge fund financing, which “liberals” claim to hate, and finances havoc in many places. After he gave the keynote speech for a summit of heads of state from the Caribbean and Central American region, one of his audience tried to overthrow the Constitution in Honduras to try to set up another Chavista-type regime, which Honduras pushed back against.

So Three Cheers for Orban. Not a perfect libertarian I’m sure, and many “modern liberals” might hate his Christianity, but that’s life in the world leading up to the end times.

Racist history of gun control

It’s always enacted by a group of people that rules over another group and doesn’t want blowback from policies unpopular with the underclass.
