Quote Of The Year

There is anecdotal evidence that the banning of traditional ammunition would have an adverse impact on government bureaucrat populations.

Simple, and to the point.

I agree completely.

There's always some commenter who says "You guys won't do anything, you'll bitch and moan on these blogs but you'll comply."
He's wrong.
If the boyz in the hood will kill for athletic shoes, pocket change or an imagined dirty look, why should we long-suffering sovereigns hold back when the bare essentials of liberty are to be denied us? And it seems there's a perfect storm a-comin'.

Get a gun, than another. Don't forget to get plenty of ammo. Get more ammo. Learn how to use them. Just my 2 cents worth.

Most of your links are from January of 2007... Not exactly current ;o)

That said, I recently stumbled over a YT vid, which profoundly affected me at a visceral level.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhpwZsix1lc

Not the best vid - I have the image of a beautiful one in my mind, but sadly I lack the skills to make it reality.

I carefully transcribed the words, then searched until I found the only online reference which named an author.

Here are the words:
====================
There comes a times in the lives of men
When the ruthless and the criminally insane
Who rule the masses for their own gain
Make the fatal mistake of enjoying too much
Their psychopathic entertainment

They lose control in their lust for blood
And take too far their need to tread men down
By destroying any sense of a secure life
And taking away each and every freedom

Stealing the last piece of wealth they possess
So they cannot even care for their own
Stifling their voice with laws and corruption
Beating them down with rule by force
Where no justice exists for those being played

And there is no direction left for men to turn
When this insane game is taken this far
Comes the time when men have nothing left to lose

This is the time when the minds of men are freed
It is a time when man loses his fear of death
This is the time when a man becomes invincible
He becomes free to do whatever he must do

Without fear for his life or for his future
He will take control of the destiny of the world
Away from the bloodied hands of the soulless

Any action he takes he will take with a surety
That he must do something for he has no future
So the act he chooses will be all the greater

For when faced with oblivion and with no way out
There is one thing this now fearless man will do
He will take down as many of his oppressors with him
Gladly die in a selfless act to change the world’s future

This day is coming soon as it always does
The perverse minds of evil always self destruct
As their addiction to our suffering can never be sated
Exerting control for their paranoia and fear of men

For every good man will take down these brutes
Every free man will give up himself for his brothers
For a man with nothing left becomes fully empowered

And he is the most unassailable weapon.
(C) 2010 Colin Ryan


As profound as this is, and given that brevity is the essence of eloquence, I think I can beat it.

As I once told a truly twisted Attorney outside the hearing room where he - at my ex-wife's behest - was attempting to saddle me with false charges of molesting my daughters:

"You know...
When you take away everything that matters to a man...
You have no right to be surprised if he acts as if he's got nothing left to lose.
"

If you want to know why We The People haven't already taken up arms, it is quite simply this.

We haven't yet accepted that we've got nothing left to lose.

The average man - today - still holds on to hope that "things will get better." He's not willing to stick his neck out, because -- SO FAR -- the price of silence is bearable.

He's done the risk/reward calculation, and it's obvious that -- SO FAR -- it's much more dangerous to stand up than it is to swallow what's being stuffed down his throat.

But with every new outrage -- every twist of the garotte -- these monsters bring us ever closer to the day when no true Man can sit silent.

Excellent comment; also, the beautiful crosshair design would make a perfect freeting card to send your elected representative, with one minor addition.
A black dot in the center bearing the caption, "You Are Here"

Remember, the EPA is itself vulnerable to sanction.

They'll attempt to stop lead containing ammo at the manufacturing level.

The EPA has brick and mortar sites all around the country, almost none of which can be offered any level of protection against sanction.

This is how it starts...some mindless bureaucrat issues an an edict without any thought for the consequences or affect on individuals. These people need to learn a very painful and expensive lesson. There will be a price to pay for arrogance.

Just so, unfortunately, but put in a way even I can understand. Pity it has to come to that.

Must we wait until we have nothing left but to die honorably? The greater Honor, it seems to me, would be to initiate righteous action against the puppet masters well bnefore we "have nothing left to lose."

Freedom is NOT "just another word for nothing left to lose."

I think it was said in a most terse way when Janis Joplin sang, "Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose."
