Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

1946: The Battle of Athens

And why we need the SECOND AMENDMENT of our BILL of RIGHTS supported at every level:

The "Battle of Athens."



We think that an abuse of government cannot occur in our time and that weapons afforded ordinary citizens cannot overthrow an abuse of government? That scenario has already played out. But the event is primarily unknown because it has remained mostly uncovered in history books and in our schools. Purposely. Shame that we should acknowledge how firearms and weapons can be a force for good -- in our very own nation?

Also see this link. And Conservative Perspective.

Governments -- and particularly despotic or questionable governments -- demand disarming its citizenry. An unarmed populace can do nothing to resist governmental tyranny, except acquiesce.

The more a government wishes to disarm its citizens, the more it wishes to buttress its own power of the state and minimize the power of its people. Because, sooner or later, government will always run out of "other people's money."

I took this photograph in the cab of a Union Pacific locomotive:

Local, common citizens who lack the ability to even defend themselves have one word to describe themselves: serfs.

Ask yourself one salient question: who fears and wishes to suppress gun rights the most? Conservatives or Leftists?

I think you have your answer.

Do what I call "the logical extension" with that answer.

Lots of history that never gets told. For instance, the Deacons for Defense and Justice.

Obama voters don't know history, but this administration can't afford that ignorance.
Almost certainly this story is one of the reasons returning Veterans are labeled "potential terrorists by this bunch of thugs.

My like-thinking brothers, if you're not talking with neighbors about forming your own militias you're already "behind the power curve".
Ugliness has now gone from "maybe" to "probably".
Be good scouts!
