DeSantis Keeps Getting Better

Boy, I wish I lived in Florida.

Guest Contributor – War Pig – 30MAR2023 – Confiscations

The day the feds start gun confiscation is the day the 2nd US civil war begins.

I believe Biden and the left are purposely trying to destroy the USA on behalf of their owners, the Chinese, Russians and Soros.

Biden’s plan to stop gas sppliances such as cook stoves, furnaces, clothes dryers, and water heaters will only serve to further erode the power grid. California is already at the point of rolling brownouts. Imagine taking away all gas appliances and adding in mandatory electric cars to boot? Grid meltdown. Add on anything else such as a good-sized earthquake or solar flare and California will have massive blackouts and, as a result, lots of deaths. California is broke. And remember, the hospitals, etc, will be forbidden gas or fuel powered backup generators.

I have a natural gas standby generator, a gas water heater (looking at an on-demand unit to replace the tank type), gas range and a gas clothes dryer. That reduces my electrical load during outages and puts less stress on the generator, so I can basically run my whole home as if I still had line power. I can cook, wash and dry clothes and the rest on a smaller generator. All circuits are available, not just an essential few. Big Daddy Joe wants to take that from me. Good luck.

Stupid Is As Stupid Does

To no one’s surprise Schumer was able to find ten Republicans willing to sign onto gun control.  John Cornyn of Texas, Thom Tillis and Richard Burr of North Carolina, Roy Blunt of Missouri, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Rob Portman of Ohio, Mitt Romney of Utah and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania have worked with the Democrats to draft a bill that would allow the Feds to go after gun owners using red flag laws.  But just look at those names.  Every one a loser.  It should be interesting to see if McConnell lets it happen.

Joe Biden Pre-Empted Wheel of Fortune.  Now He’s in Trouble

If there’s anything Camera Girl enjoys it’s watching Pat Sajak and Vanna White give away money to happy go lucky contestants spinning the wheel of fortune.  But tonight, Dementia Joe pre-empted the show and now she is mightily ticked off at the loser.

As she fast forwarded through the dvr recording she stopped at several points and I could hear Mumbly Joe going through his various emotive techniques.  His hoarse whispering, his references to God, his fake anger.  He did all of those.  Now I’m not a fanatical wheeler watcher like Camera Girl but even I was appalled that a useful and enjoyable television presentation was lost for the sake of letting that lunatic berate us and lie to us for half an hour or so.

I’m trying to think of a scenario where I would waste half an hour listening to Joe Biden.  And restricting the question to probable cases, I can’t think of a single one.  I mean it’s highly unlikely that he’d confess to all his high crimes on a televised address.  That would get me.  But Joe’s too good a liar to let that happen.

I guess he has his best excuse at getting my attention during the State of the Union Address.  But I skipped that.  Would you count a debate with Donald Trump?  I’d call that incidental viewing because without Trump there just wouldn’t be any reason to watch it.

So, Joe is making the full court press to pass a gun control law.  I guess it’s possible that McConnell is cowardly enough to agree to something like that.  I wouldn’t be shocked if they cave.  It is their defining feature to allow themselves to be stampeded off a cliff.  We’ll have to see just how stupid the Stupid Party is this time.

So, we’ll have to find something else to watch tonight.  I’ve recorded the 1972 Russian language sci-fi classic Solaris.  Camera Girl would rather be boiled in oil than watch a sub-titled foreign film.  So, it will have to wait until later.  We’ll watch an episode of the new Harry Bosch cable series.  It’s not as good as the previous seasons.  Bosch’s daughter who is played by an actress that looks like she weighs seventy-five pounds soaking wet is supposed to be an LAPD trainee.  I’ve had to watch her supposedly tackle male suspects and cuff them.  My nine-year-old grandson could body slam her and not break a sweat.  But it’s slim pickings on television these days.

It should be interesting to see if the Evil Party can somehow distract the voters from the crashing of the US economy.  The old election saw was, “It’s the economy, stupid!”.  But I wonder.  Nowadays it might be said that, “It’s the stupid, stupid!”.  After all, this is a country where approximately half of the people voted for Joe Biden, a seventy-eight-year-old mental patient, for president.  I guess it’s possible that America is just too stupid to protect itself from grifters and psychopaths.  From my point of view, the good news is that we’ve got the acid test in front of us.  If there isn’t a tidal wave of voters to throw the Democrats out then the Dissident Right is right.  We’re completely washed up and I’ll need Plan B.  So, five months to find out the answer.  I guess I can wait.

Who Murders a Classroom of Second Graders?

Who destroys innocent human life just to get attention?  A madman.  Whether he uses a gun or an automobile or poison this is a creature devoid of human feeling.  And imagine targeting specifically young children.  Now we have a human monster.  Someone who is intent on horrifying his audience to the greatest degree.

What does it say about our society that we have platoons of these maniacs?  One time it’s a heartless creep who mows down a crowd of children and their families at a Christmas parade.  Then it’s a racist opening up on a train full of commuters.  Last week it’s another racist shooting up a store.  And yesterday an eighteen-year-old psychopath shoots his grandmother and goes on to a grade school and kills everyone in sight.

The fact that one of them was white, two black and one Latino is only important in the case of the white man because that allows him to be guilty of the additional crime of white supremacy.  And the black man in the car must be completely ignored because he didn’t use a gun and is black.  But the three gun-wielders all can be used as fodder for the gun control lobby that relishes these stories like nothing else.  And that is why the man who mowed down a crowd with his car must be ignored.

Because if we think about other weapons like a car or a kitchen knife or a couple of grams of fentanyl, we realize that mass murder is within the reach of any maniac who decides he wants to get famous by murdering innocent people.  After all a nurse has the opportunity to kill thousands of people if she is careful to avoid an obvious pattern to her work.  A worker at a food or pharmaceutical plant can easily adulterate products that people will ingest.

It’s simply that guns are a political target that the Left seeks to take away from free people to render them subject to their supposed public servants.  I’ve seen how this story works with the weak minded.  They immediately cave to the appeal to their soft nature, “Think of the children.”  Well, what about the maniac at the wheel of a car?  Shouldn’t we by the same logic eliminate the automobile?  And how about chain saws?  I’m sure someone has killed his neighbor with one of those.

But it’s the same old argument.  We’ll hear this ad infinitum for the next few weeks.  Hopefully the Supreme Court won’t be swayed when they make their decision on New York City’s restrictive gun law that’s on the docket.

But for me the real question is a different one.  It’s not about the weapon.  My question is about the killers.  Are they getting worse?  And are they getting more common?   Fifty years ago, more or less, an insane man took a rifle into a tower on a college campus and started shooting people at random until he was stopped by a policeman’s bullet.

That killing spree horrified the nation.  But it wasn’t followed by another one a week later and then another one a week after that.  I could be wrong about this but it seems like the mental health of this country is sliding.  The people who commit these mass murders are the worst cases.  They must be the people who have the lowest reserves of sanity to draw on.  But for every one of these there must be a million cases of road rage or some other antisocial outburst.

This is the result of living in the pressure cooker that the Left has ushered in with their George Floyd color revolution.  Deteriorating financial conditions, lawlessness on the streets, alienation by the people in charge; it’s a perfect storm of mental stress that is cracking more and more of the weakest minds.  But think of how disconnected from his human feelings an eighteen-year-old must be to go into a classroom of second graders or fourth graders and start shooting them point blank.  I can’t do it.  I can’t imagine that anyone with a shred of humanity could do such a thing.

So, the world is dehumanizing the weakest people among us.  That is a warning signal.  We’ve gotten rid of God.  We’ve abandoned reality.  We no longer protect our children from harmful people and their warped ideas.  Life in Joe Biden’s America is becoming something like living in an insane asylum.  Maybe people will vote to change that.

What I Took Away from the Weekend Horror Fest

I waited yesterday instead of writing a post.  I wanted to sift through my thoughts.

My opinion is we’re in a lot of trouble.  And I’m not talking about Democrats and Second Amendment attacks and presidential polls.  Put all that aside for a minute.

Connor Betts was 24.  Patrick Crusius is 21.  We have young men who are of an age where they should be enjoying life to its fullest.  Instead they’re flushing their lives down the drain in a senseless orgy of violence.  And it’s happening more and more frequently.  Without a doubt, the ones committing these crimes are the most damaged of their generation.  They are probably terrible misfits that don’t feel empathy and live inside the tiny world of their own thoughts.  There have always been people like this and there have always been crimes like these.  But nowhere near as many.

What I’m afraid we are doing is widening a window of people who can fall into this kind of trap.  Adolescence is a rough time, especially for males.  Without someone watching out for them it’s easy to get involved in destructive behavior.  And that someone no longer exists.  Nobody is watching out for these kids.  Mom and Dad are both working.  Many times, there isn’t even another brother or sister around to communicate with.  No one even knows or cares if they go to school.  Work doesn’t leave any room for these kids.  So, they spend their time on the internet or video games.  If they fall behind in school or get into trouble often the parents and teachers will paper over it and make believe that something didn’t happen or didn’t mean anything.

And in the last ten years we have added a new dimension.  The Millennials grew up in a world where there were no jobs to be had.  So, after spending twelve years bored in school, without a job you live in your parents’ basement and have no adult life or even prospects of it.  So, in addition to the truly disturbed individuals we are pushing the fragile normal people into the same place.  They’re angry and are looking for someone to punish for their wasted lives.

The mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton are, as always, shocking.  But what isn’t a surprise is that these two young men were dangerously mentally ill long before their rampages.  Just looking at the pictures and reading the accounts of their histories should be enough to convince people that what we have in this country isn’t a gun problem, it’s societal dysfunction causing a mental health emergency.  Look at the kid in Ohio.  The stories contain the fact that while in high school he had a list of kids he wanted to kill and a list of girls he wanted to rape.  If you’re the parent of this boy what else do you need to hear to know that your son is a ticking time bomb?  And maybe they did know.  And maybe it’s just where we are as a country that they didn’t know what to do.  What would I have done in that case?  What can be done?  These aren’t easy questions to answer.  But they sure do have to be answered.  We’ve got a whole continent full of young men growing up in a world that doesn’t value their talents and doesn’t have anything to keep them gainfully employed.  That is a recipe for extinction.

So other than a lot of talk, what does all this mean?  Well for the most deeply disturbed we have to stop thinking that antidepressants will allow criminally insane individuals to walk among us.  These people need to be institutionalized for life.  That’s for their own good but mostly for ours.

But for the run of the mill kid growing up in America there’s still plenty that needs to be done.  What my take away from this is spend a lot of time with your sons and your grandsons.  Don’t assume that just by keeping them in school and driving them to soccer practice that they’re okay.  Talk about the future with them.  Talk realistically and constructively about how kids transition into adults.  Know their friends.  Check their homework and see if they’re prepared for tests.  Pay attention!  Be aware of their activities on the internet.  Help them to socialize in a constructive way.  And don’t let them feel alone or bored.  A kid is better off with a manual labor job than sitting around alone all day.

You may think that these things only happen to the worst of the worst people.  But I don’t think that’s the case.  The world that we live in isolates us and destroys our communities, families and especially our sons.  Don’t let it.  Even the kids who don’t go off the deep end are struggling in an environment that’s almost unfathomable even for adults.  Help them!  Adapt to the problems, compensate for the dysfunctional arrangements we live under.  Save your kids.  They’re the only possession of value you have.


War Pig – Second Amendment and Gun Registration and Licensing

Ok, here’s one I recently wrote on the FoxNews site about the Second Amendment and gun registration/licensing.


We don’t have to register to exercise our free speech (unless we’re conservatives on a liberal college campus). We don’t have to register or be licensed to enjoy freedom of religion, nor freedom of peaceful assembly.

I postulate that speech has killed more people than private citizen’s guns. How many people did Hitler kill, himself, I mean? How many times did he pull the trigger and take a life? No record on if he ever did it in WWI, and as far as we know, he only ever pulled the trigger on one person – himself. Yet he used words, speech, to create hatred for millions of people and gave orders, which are words, to exterminate over 6 million people who had no guns to defend themselves from his words. Sticks and stones may indeed break bones but words can cause a Holocaust.

If the pen indeed be mightier than the sword, then maybe we should start registering pens and speech, forcing practitioners of free speech whether verbally or in writing to comply with odious licensing procedures and taking away the pen and speech whenever someone waves a “red flag”. I bet you’d see CNN and MSNBC howl then.
