It is all About Control

We all, or at least we all should, know that leftists want to control us. They seek power over the stupid unwashed masses(us), so they can show us how to live properly according to their beliefs. The ironic thing about this, is the fact that they usually charge social conservatives as being the group who wants to put their boot on your neck.

The left wants to do it through government regulation. You see, we all are just not smart enough to handle this freedom thing, so we need to be shown how to do what is right for the collective. Personal freedom isn’t as important as saving us from ourselves.

This reasoning has been used for one hundred years to justify the murder of millions upon millions of people, who just would not fall in line. As I first said in my epiphany, from over a year ago, global warming is the new communism. Please read that post if you have not before. That theory is a tad bit inaccurate though. It is better stated to say that environmentalism is the latest cause du jour of the totalitarian communista hordes.

The left has been very, very successful using environmental totalitarianism to further their goals. We should be very well aware of this. They use the EPA to deny requests to build things we need like nuclear power plants, housing, and oil platforms. All too often their objections are purely political and not based on any real evidence or science.

I must say, that not all environmentalism is wrong. On the contrary. As stewards of the earth, we are responsible for its wellbeing. We ought to preserve the natural world as best we can. Radical environmentalism is of course no good to anyone, except those seeking power.

Global warming is of course the jewel in the crown of the environazi. Their Great Leader Al Gore, is seen as a prophet, and a rock star. They rely on false data, or no data at all in making their claims. No matter how many times their models are refuted, they will always come up with excuses as to why they are correct. We are always on the precipous of disaster. We must act right now or it will be to late.

The goal of all of this, as I stated, is control. They want to control what and how you do things. That want to make it "fair" for all. Of course as the poor Soviets found, "fairness" isn't really the same for everyone. It sucks for the overwhelming majority. Fairness is a gulag, or a work camp in Siberia. That is of course assuming you were lucky enough to actually make it to the gulag, instead of being shot like a dog in the street.

This post was precipitated by this "study" being reported on in the Guardian.


Tara Garnett, the report's author, warned that campaigns encouraging people to change their habits voluntarily were doomed to fail and urged the government to use caps on greenhouse gas emissions and carbon pricing to ensure changes were made. "Food is important to us in a great many cultural and symbolic ways, and our food choices are affected by cost, time, habit and other influences," the report says. "Study upon study has shown that awareness-raising campaigns alone are unlikely to work, particularly when it comes to more difficult changes."

Please read the whole thing.

So now they are ready to get government to force us to change our eating habits! Forget downsizing your house or car, they aim to actually force us to eat how they want us to eat! The article goes on to explain that this is a moderate approach as opposed to outlawing meat-eating altogether. They know that even the rubes would never agree with that. So they want to start with just slowly limiting how much meat we are allowed to have.

Our friend at Ramblings From Oz, has come up with the ultimate unfortunate solution for these fascists. Ultimately force most be counteracted with force.

One last note on this topic today. The radical environuts and the radical PETA types are in this together. They have a mental disorder that makes them think eating animals is wrong. They see animals as better than humans. That is the important distinction we must all realize. They would just as soon see you and your family dead, if it saves the animals from your BBQ pit. All of them think humanity is blight on nature for some reason. It probably has a lot to do with all the liberal guilt they have been taught at the universities for years.

AR Mags

I am not going to get stuck paying $50 for a 30 round magazine again! While I am fairly confident John McCain is going to defeat Obama in a landslide, it is better to be safe than very sorry later. I remember the price of mags during the hellish AWB years.

Yesterday I got permission from the CFO to order 20 C Products AR mags with magpul followers. They are on sale at AIM Surplus for $9.95 each. I have a couple C Products mags currently and have been very happy with them. Now I just need to order 500 rounds of ammo to fill them with. Hopefully I can do that in the next couple of weeks.

Oh yeah, I also ordered a brass catcher for the AR from AIM. I will report on it as soon as I get to take it to the range.

New Arsenal Additions

Yea! I gots new guns.

The family arsenal has appreciated in size by three recently. This of course is anticipation of zombie hordes / Obama is elected / hadron collider black holes. There will hopefully be some more EBR goodness added before the election due to the Messiah's possible enshrinement, as none of the recent additions are of that persuasion.

The first purchase was made about a month ago. I purchased a nice looking MN 1891/30 to go along with his shorter cousin. Neither of these have been cleaned up or shot as of yet. Hopefully that will be accomplished sometime this winter. I need to find a place to shoot this surplus FMJ stuff, as the ranges around here are all scared of it for some reason. This example is a round receivered 1943 variant if I remember correctly.

Secondly, while buying a retiring Naval buddy a new XD-40 for his retirement last week (story to come later), I found that Cheaper Than Dirt had some neat little S&W 22a pistols on sale for $199. The evil dealer of death behind the counter informed me that this was the last example at that price. Bastard! So, after oohing and aahing over it's integral rail mount, and neato looking death sights I bought it. "It would be easy to put this on the same 4473.", he says. "Just tell the wife the XDs went up $200." I of course did not lie to the wife, as she has a keen eye for new guns entering the house, and lying to my better half is just something I don't do. She can smell new guns like a beagle on a rabbit trail anyway.

We already have a 22/45, but how can you have too many cheap plinker pistols? The answer of course is that you can't ever have to many. Rimfire rifles and pistols are a household good that should be plentiful in every home. If you don't own at least one of each, you should, and soon. While looking at the 22a I spied a S&W 41. Oh my, what a lovely pistol with a lovely price tag that one is. Maybe someday. It is hard to justify a $1000 plinker pistol.

At any rate, the 22a should be getting a workout this weekend with a few hundred rounds of Mini Mags. I am also going to shoot my latest addition for the second time. I bought Louise, as I have named her, yesterday and headed directly for the range. She gleefully chewed through a box of WWB .45 ACP, like it was nothing. I have never owned a more accurate pistol. I am a fairly lousy shot, and this new gun actually put up some nice groups for me. There is no doubt that it is far more accurate than I am.

So what did I get? Well, I got a brand new Kimber Custom CDP II. What a thing of beauty she is too. After looking at some lesser 1911s, some AKs, a DPMS .308 AR, I ended up picking Louise out of the group. The CDP stands for Custom Defense Package if my memory is working correctly. It is a very nice 1911 designed for concealed carrying, and that is exactly what it will be used for when I am legally able to do so. This pistol has all kinds of bells and whistles. Ambi-safety, match barrel, checkered grip, polished this and that, AL frame, adjustable trigger, night sights, and some othe features I probably didn't have to have. It is very sexy for sure, and in my brief testing shoots very, very well. I am in love. Louise is my favorite gun at the moment.

Pics of all three to come in the next couple of days.

Sarah on Energy Production

Found this on YouTube. Pretty good stuff from Sarah Palin a few months ago. Maybe she can knock some sense into McCain on the global warming issue.

Sarah Palin Tonight

Well it has been five days since McCain announced Palin as his VP pick. Five days of the most dispicalbe display of depraved attacks from the leftie media. It is hard to recall anything even similar to this in my life experience.

Unfortunately the left's typical hypocrasy is on full display. It somehow is OK to make fun of a woman's looks, insinuate that she tried to kill her down's syndrome baby, and call a 17 year old daughter a whore as long as the women in question, is against the "right" to kill an unborn child.

What is really pathetic is their apparent glee that Bristol Palin is pregnant. They are glad that this stupid fundie Sarah Palin, has been shown that abstinence doesn't work. This of course is a completely stupid argument. Of course abstinence works. I don't see anyone wondering if Bristol and Levi did not actually have sex.

They have villified this woman for wanting to serve her country, and have a beautiful family. Another thing that should never be questioned unless you are a conservative.

These morons pretend to know how we conservatives will react to the news that Bristol Palin is pregnant, and has decided to have her baby, and marry the father of her child. We of course are proud of her and her mother's choice to both respect their children's right to live no matter the circumstances. We empathize with the family, and understand that everyone makes mistakes.

This doesn't fit in with the left's twisted synacism. They claim to be the tolerant non-judgemental elites. They of course are anything buy non-judgemental.

At any rate, Sarah Palin is having her coming out party tonight, and the left is terrified. She represents everything they hate, and everything people like myself love. To quote Uncle, "Beyond that, what scares the left is that Palin is guns, God and babies. Bitter and clingy Americans love that.". Tonight we will get to know her better, and my prediction is that she will totally make the fears of the left come to pass.
