Freedom is at stake. Thankfully, we have folks that know it and are doing something about it.

Charles Koch: I’m Fighting to Restore a Free Society

I have devoted most of my life to understanding the principles that enable people to improve their lives. It is those principles—the principles of a free society—that have shaped my life, my family, our company and America itself.

Unfortunately, the fundamental concepts of dignity, respect, equality before the law and personal freedom are under attack by the nation’s own government. That’s why, if we want to restore a free society and create greater well-being and opportunity for all Americans, we have no choice but to fight for those principles. I have been doing so for more than 50 years, primarily through educational efforts. It was only in the past decade that I realized the need to also engage in the political process.

A truly free society is based on a vision of respect for people and what they value. In a truly free society, any business that disrespects its customers will fail, and deserves to do so. The same should be true of any government that disrespects its citizens. The central belief and fatal conceit of the current administration is that you are incapable of running your own life, but those in power are capable of running it for you. This is the essence of big government and collectivism.

More than 200 years ago, Thomas Jefferson warned that this could happen. “The natural progress of things,” Jefferson wrote, “is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.” He knew that no government could possibly run citizens’ lives for the better. The more government tries to control, the greater the disaster, as shown by the current health-care debacle. Collectivists (those who stand for government control of the means of production and how people live their lives) promise heaven but deliver hell. For them, the promised end justifies the means.

…as in mock the moron Senator De Leon, aka Senator McGunControl.

This guy is such a clueless liberal asshat that he should be fired for stupidity alone.

…very well stated.

…is at hand.

President Obama is trying to rule by fiat.
He does not have the authority to change a law because he doesn’t like it, or in this case, it isn’t working.
Our Constitutional Republic is in great danger and the Congress needs to get off its collective ass and stop kissing the tyrant’s ring.

Watch this video from Ben Sasse.

…was a blast!

My brother came home from Afghanistan on the 11th of October.
We hit the desert two weeks after he gets back for a Shootfest!

This is the second one that I’ve done and it was even better than the first just by the volume of guns that we had out there.

We had a couple friends come out too, which is why there are so many guns.
One guy was responsible for just under half you see on the table. There are more guns, pistols were generally on hips.

What a treat this was!

Here’s the spread:

The weapons ranged from over 100 years old to modern day.
Here’s a couple more pics:

And yes, it is a .308 Lapua. This this is a tack driver.

Sweet doesn’t even come close. Hell of a rifle.

Another angle on the table.

It was definitely a fun day and a great way to welcome my brother home.

Welcome home Bro!

 

…is just that. A myth. No such thing. They violate our laws the second they cross the border, and it continues unabated and aided by the MSM and amnesty advocates alike.

This is a long essay, but well worth your time.

The Myth of the “Otherwise Law-Abiding” Illegal Alien

For years advocates of amnesty and high levels of immigration have described the illegal alien population as one made up of “otherwise law-abiding” people who have committed no violation other than the simple act of crossing a border illegally or overstaying a visa.1 Journalists routinely invoke this language when writing about amnesty, conspicuously avoiding any discussion of the various crimes the average working illegal alien commits. Many politicians have also embraced the myth of the otherwise law-abiding illegal alien in an effort to promote amnesty, arguing that illegal aliens are no threat to the United States.2

But the average illegal alien violates numerous statutes, often creating real victims.

This is one hell of a quote:

Our government is too big. It is too inefficient. It is too intrusive. It needs to do less, and it needs to do a considerably better job of executing those functions it does carry out. The struggle to take us from where we are today to a future in which a leaner, flatter government allows its citizens to truly live free, is the defining battle of our time. Nothing less than the definition of what it means to be “an American” is at stake.

Freedom in Internet Blog Reporting Excellence

It’s been 34 plus years since my first attempt to use a computer. A “trash 80″ that had no internal memory to speak of. It used a 7 1/4″ “floppy” disk with limited abilities. In the early ’90′s I first found the internet, but didn’t use it to any extent until later in the decade and early in the new millennium. Today my life and most everyone else in the first world would be lost without our computers, in whatever form they may take, and the internet.

Something that most of us have come to expect, rely upon, enjoy, love and hate is the internet blogger.

What the heck is a blogger? Well, the term blogger comes from Weblog. A weblog is the combination of web and log. The internet being referred to as the web, web of internet connections, and the log is the continuing input of information into a website location. A blogger is a person who uses a website location to discuss whatever is his interest.

A bloggers interests may be personal or pertaining to intersexual relations or politics. Essentially, whatever one can think of is covered or discussed or referenced on the internet at some bloggers blog site.

…that’s what they should call themselves. Their agenda is as plain as the nose on their faces.

These anti-gun douche bags are all about control. If the government is the one controlling the guns then guess who else they control after that?

If you are a stooge of government controlling all aspects of your life, then maybe you should move to North Korea. I’m sure they’d love your stupid ass.

No guns, no freedom. Guaranteed.

Let’s Kick King Bloomberg While He’s Down, Colorado Victory: Proof & Opportunity

Manassas, VA –Ammoland.com-

Colorado Senate President John Morse and State Senator Angela Giron are both out of a job as of September 10 2013 when vote-counts showed that recall elections against the pair were successful.

Morse lost in a close race, while Giron was effectively trounced.

The recall effort was initiated by angry GunVoters after the legislature passed, and the Governor signed, a gun control bill which requires almost all private firearm transfers to go through a licensed dealer for background checks, requires gun buyers to pay a fee to the dealer for processing the paperwork, and limits new magazines to no more than 15-rounds.

We were told by Mike Bloomberg and his crew at Mayors Against Illegal Guns that this election was going to prove once and for all that the “gun lobby’s” power is a myth, that politicians who fear the wrath of GunVoters have been conned, and that if politicians will step out in support of gun control, the voters will reward them. Bloomberg wrote a personal check for $350,000 to back up that statement and helped recruit other deep-pockets donors like California gazillionaire, Eli Broad, who kicked in another $200,000, and major DC fundraising fronts that chipped in several hundred thousand more. All told, these individuals and groups contributed the lion’s share of some $3,000,000 the campaigns spent trying to save Morse and Giron – at least 5 times more than the approximately half-million dollars spent by those trying to fire the pair.

Now that the election is over, we hear from the “Media” that the results are relatively meaningless – “just symbolic” – that the only thing proven is that, this time, Republicans succeeded in suppressing the vote, even though more Democrats cast ballots than Republicans did, that Morse and Giron ran poor campaigns, and that the real reason the recalls succeeded was that Colorado voters just don’t like Mike Bloomberg and his money.
