 Greetings friends It has been some time since I have posted, life moves on for us all. The times are getting worse, despite the rosy predictions of the Obama administration and the slanted unreliable information coming out of the Whitehouse.

The massive government power grab that has been in process for decades by both party’s Republican and Democrat has been accelerated to a frighteningly fast pace in face of the tragic shootings in Sandy Hook CT and Aurora CO and the government’s gleeful attempts to disarm honest law-abiding Americans.

Instead of meaningful conversation about safeguarding our schools by improving mental health easing the process of having dangerous individuals committed for treatment, or improving security at schools just like they have at every City county and government building or even improving the back ground check process for legal purchase of weapons they have gone straight for the emotional impact of banning the oh so scary semiautomatic rifle, otherwise known as the “Assault Rifle”.

 They are ignoring any meaningful discussion of the facts purposely to suit their agenda which is to disarm the people, and have all camped out  in the white house for a big “How does this make you feel session”  Ignoring the fact that the numbers of people killed with a rifle are less than 400 in 20011 and that over 6000 were killed with handguns.

 You would think they would be looking at the handguns, but no that doesn’t have the big scary emotional impact as the Scary Black Rifle and never mind they will be coming for the pistols soon enough.
They ignore the fact that the majority of the total numbers of handgun deaths are caused by and in relation to criminal activity, with only a few thousand of these deaths was murder the goal. They also ignore the vast number of other assaults.

Simply put it’s mostly criminals killing each other, with the occasional bystander thrown in, and this will not be affected by attempting to disarm honest law-abiding American’s. Because criminals and nut jobs do not generally care what the law is anyway.

 Deaths unfortunately happen, tragic horrible deaths always have and always will they cannot by any means be prevented a 100%.  There is no such thing as complete safety in the world that’s an American illusion ask any vet that’s been overseas they will tell you it’s an illusion and that you yourself are your own best source of security, ignore that at your peril.

Free American and free Americans understand that the 2nd amendment is not just a right but is a duty and an obligation every American is responsible to up hold and defend as we the people are the Militia not the government.

  The straws have been piling up on the people, we have been overburdened with taxes in support of a vocal rabble that refuses to support itself we have been inflicted with parasites drawing off wealth and resource’s that we the working minority have sweated and bled for depriving us of the just rewards of our own labors to share it out with those who take advantage of every opportunity to do nothing for themselves. We have been scorned and ridiculed by the press the media and our elected official’s labeled as flyover states, T baggers, Racists, religious fundamentalists, evangelicals, as the president says we have nothing left to cling to but our god and our guns. This ignores that fact that we are many things many groups Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, and no real party at all we are all parts, conservative, liberal, religious and not, we are black white brown and natives, many colors races religions but foremost and fundamentally we are AMERICANS. We do not cling to old world culture, the past or what land our forebears or fathers came from either yesterday or two hundred years ago , we are Americans and that’s enough.

There is a simmer taking place right now right here, its in thousands of places on blogs and in papers in living rooms and offices at work and at home, ordinary americans, we are many and we are waking up. 
Americans have realized the government has overstepped and crossed the line, and must be stopped from any further invasion of our homes, schools, bodies and churches.

 I have never seen so many reacting to government overreach so strongly. These are peaceful people hopeful of the future normally, who have been pushed finally irrevocably too far. We want our rights unencumbered by oppressive regulation, the freedom as intended in the constitution to exercise them to reach each our own limits of personnel success or failure standing on our own feet responsible for our own decisions good or bad without government intervention. Those who seek a handout and support while contributing nothing positive to their own lives or society will have to face the consequences of their own actions.

This country was founded on and has until the modern era been a race of men and women who first and foremost counted on themselves not on the government or even on others to save them. Look to yourself first what can you do to make yourself better your life and circumstance better. Those who would trade freedom for security deserve and indeed will get neither. 

We may be little people unimportant to those in power but they forget they derive their power form the consent of the governed, looks like it’s time we took it back.
