Yet today, due to the breakdown in education wrought by leftist academicians and media talking heads, many Americans presume a “well regulated militia” and “shall not be infringed” are polar opposites; that the former represents a collective right viewpoint while the latter presents the right as an individual one. Such presumptions create a false dichotomy that pits one phrase against another in an amendment where both phrases were meant to be of mutual benefit.
Consider the Second Amendment: “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
At the outset we must understand that the individual right to keep and bear arms is not in spite of the mention of a militia but because of it. In other words, because the militia played a key role in the Founders’ minds, and is intended to play a key role even now, the right to possess arms, with which to gather in militia, “shall not be infringed.”
FK – So when is the Breitbart militia forming up?
Why hasn’t Trump brought the troops home and activated the militias and had them hunt our real enemies who are here and always have been?
FK – As the primitive species we are we have ‘no’ control over many to most of the possible ways the ‘world’ could ‘end,’ including some sadistic asshole of a bronze age god that was patterned after ancient tyrannical kings coming back to burn billions including kids and babies alive in fire forever.
How pathetic. On New Years Eve 1999 I was scrounging through a military surplus store and another customer asked me if I was ‘prepping'(I don’t think that word was in use then) for Y2K, an event the corporations spent billions to ‘prevent’ btw. I just looked at him and smiled and said “No, Liberal season.”
Four or five or many other dates I maybe didn’t hear about have passed since and we still haven’t done what must be done: Hunt our real enemies, our domestic white-skinned blood enemies who are doing us real damage by destroying our Bill of Rights, our civilization, our education system and on and on, to extinction. The republicrats that passed the ‘patriot act’ and other evil laws after 9/11, an event some at the least knew were coming and didn’t try to stop, should be next.
We must make sure that if some major cataclysm does happen enough have a basic understanding of human liberty that our species doesn’t descend into some centuries long dark age similar to the feudalism of Europe or the corporate communism of China.
But then we are slaves now. We are not free here. The military does not fight for our freedom. Trump would have to bring them home and have them hunt our aforementioned real enemies for them to do so.
All this doomsday/rapture crap is distraction from what desperately needs to be our real mission: re-establishing human liberty and our Bill of Rights, planet wide so that our slavery isn’t passed on to yet another generation. But as I mention often we are still a very primitive species and still exist in a very dark and dangerous age. As always it’s up to that tiny minority to fight their way out of it.
We can send the sacred, or scared, cows to Australia
A lot of those white guys were assholes and would care no more for poor working class whites than what you might call the mudders or whatever. If you don’t believe me go get a job in their factories or deliver their freight for a while.
Who’s our greatest enemy? Those who build the Trojan Horse or those who open the gate?
Nothing will get better until we stop worrying so much about the fundie ragheads and start rounding up and at the least deporting our real enemies, our domestic enemies.
So who or what is our real enemy? A tiny no. of fundies who manage to kill a few mush heads now and again or our own white home-grown “Liberal”(commie) trash that works relentlessly to disarm and thus fully enslave millions?
What will we do when a commie SCOTUS rules it’s OK for the “Liberal”(commie) trash, our real enemies, to demand we ‘turn them in?’ How many cowards will comply? Those are the questions that matter.
What’s an ‘illegal gun?’ Those two words are nowhere to be found in the Second Amendment. A right applied for is a privilege.
Was the last ‘mass shooting’ site a ‘gun free zone?” Why are commiefornia and others still ‘may issue’ states? Why do we seek ‘permission’ to exercise the most basic right any creature possesses, that of self defense?
If the Marxist mutt and other commie extremists that call themselves ‘liberal’ and ‘progressive’ tell us to surrender our weapons and thus our most basic right, they’ll find out what blood really is.
The most important ‘private property’ anyone owns is their own life, health, safety, and no one, anywhere, anytime has the ‘right’ to take that from them or deny them their most basic right, that of self defense.
We all get the elected public servants the brain dead sheeple deserve.
I’ll vote for the candidate that will bring the troops home, activate the militias, and re-invade and re-conquer commiefornia and the other commie enclaves on the left and East coasts.
They’re not ‘leftists,’ ‘liberal’ or ‘progressive.’ They’re communists/globalists. They want us disarmed so we can’t kill them when enough finally wake up to the necessity of doing so.
Our Liberty is dying because of our failure to hunt the “Liberal”(commie) and globalist trash to extinction.
Governments will always be able to get guns so we must always be better armed than them.
Act politically but prep for what history shows will have to be done. It’s way past time to prep for what will be required.
Well, it’s been a long morning. It’ll be a long afternoon posting this to various social media accounts for which I’ll get a handful of hits. If you appreciate anything I do or have done click on the PayPal or Patreon buttons and send some ones and zeros my way so I can pay my cell bill by Friday…
Just remember, no matter how much you send, I still won’t lie for you.
FK – Well he’s partly telling the truth. There was never a mythological ‘golden age’ of amerikan or any other brand of journalism. Most newspapers of the 18th and 19th centuries were founded to push one ism or another.
FK – The modern amerikan newswhore puts Pravda to shame. The average Soviet Citizen, especially the ones in its conquered satellite countries, probably knew it was bullshit.
Here half the population or more still watches or listens to mainstream crap like it was gospel from the ancient tribal propaganda, or better.
They prefer whores that lie to them because they prefer to be lied to. It’s far easier than taking on personal responsibility for the world they exist in. It’s far easier to sit on the couch and have another beer or wait for some false saviour to beam them up before things get too bad, which of course didn’t happen to their ancestors and won’t happen to their descendants yet they never catch on. Again, because it’s easier.
All this shit I lay directly at ‘They the People’s’ feet. We could easily fix our country if the so-called ‘good people’ would get off their asses, pay attention, think for themselves, cast off their ancient insanities/inanities and stand up for themselves and each other like real men and women.
After 20+ years of trying to get them to do their part without resorting to one extreme insanity or another I understand fully why and how the elites view us, the great unwashed working classes, the way they do.
Most of us have a slave mentality and fully deserve a whip across our backs.
The ‘super liberals'(communists/globalists) as he calls them are a tiny minority of our population. If Trump would bring the troops home and concentrate on our real enemies, that have white skin and were mostly born here, we could restore our Bill of Rights and have a new birth of Liberty.
And I can’t agree on the ‘leakers.’ Most sheeple are worker bees, more concerned with keeping their wages/salaries and retirement plans than doing anything that approaches being ‘right.’ That might require real sacrifice.
From one insanity to another:
FK – The brains of young children are sponges. What they are conditioned to accept may surface long afterwards, or at least seem tolerable.
As always we go from one insane extreme to another.
FK – The tool-using monkeys have always produced garbage. It’s just that nowadays we scatter it on the living room sofa or stream it live onto blank slates that aren’t ready to deal with it and wonder why all the flies are buzzing around our heads.
It’s that smell of death of empires wafting in the wind.
In my younger days the old ladies were having conniption fits over mini-skirts and bikinis and young men with long hair that they couldn’t tell from girls after growing up around civil war veterans with long hair and long beards decades before, and oh yeah, with pictures of long-haired, bearded heyzeuses on their walls.
How the wheels turn, form one cultural insanity to another.
I never took a gun to school but in the third grade I did fantasize about leading a revolution against school authorities with my grandfather’s 36″ barreled 12 ga. shotgun, complete with all of us kids dug in around the school, holding it under siege. Harbingers of future attitudes I suppose.
And the Bunkers were major commie propaganda, designed to make those who think like us look like uneducated buffoons. Sadly they’re about half right.
The real problem isn’t boundaries. The problem is being forced to lie about what we think they are or should be and all those without the backbone to stand up and do any damn thing about it.
Maybe we’re all on a ‘witch hunt”:
FK – Sit in a court proceeding sometime and listen to four or five sheeple give vastly different accounts of an event under oath and learn all about ‘objectivity.’
Thank goodness for the gods of high technology that most of them carry smart phones with built in video cameras now so we can still see arguments on fakebook over whether some Nazis in blue should really be allowed to drag their victims from their cars and beat them into submission, or way past submission just because they dissed those whose job it is to protect the interests of the state.
All this is so-much bush beating.
There’s never been an ‘un-biased’ newswhore and there never will be. I’m proudly biased toward Human Liberty and against the blue-suited Nazis that daily break their oaths by upholding evil law that serves to benefit the state and not ‘We the People(sheeple).’
Let me give you a clue: A lot of those ‘Ted X’ talkers are bullshit artists running their mouths for a check.
Each side of ‘the hill’ or the border or the ocean or cultural divide has a different set of indoctrinators that are writing on the blank slates of every generation. So not only are their fears based in what our ancestors learned in the forest and the cave but on some ancient tribal propaganda we haven’t outgrown yet or in some modern pseudo science that’s been politicized in the same way the ancient tribal propaganda was if only for slightly different means to the same end: keeping the slaves working.
What matters to the tool-using monkeys???? Thanks for the laugh of the morning.
Reality doesn’t matter to them. That’s more than obvious. They want a savior that will wave it’s magic wand and solve their problems for them or ride in on a white horse, a golden chariot or a flying saucer and alleviate them of all personal responsibility.
Again, the elites know this. That’s why they do what they do, however miss-guided they themselves usually are.
Maybe you’ll get to run for Prez someday or Prime Minister or whatever(I lose track of the country of origin of these YouTube stars) and get to tell the sheeple all the comfortable lies they want to hear and win, or tell them reality and lose.
I wore a seatbelt for years before the govt. mandated it for money. I wear a helmet on my motorcycle and bicycle even though by the action or inaction of our brain dead legislators that’s not ‘the law’ in this state.
Well, I guess that’s why I’ve failed as a journalist, I refuse to lie for anyone or anything. That’s not likely to change.
True ‘objectivity,’ whatever that is, won’t exist until we stop choosing one form of authoritarianism over another and stop doing evil in the name of making a living. None breathing today will likely breathe long enough to see that happen.
We have a representative republic, guaranteed to every state, not a democracy.
We have a Bill of Rights that acknowledges rights we are born with, not granted or created by any government.
We vote with the knowledge that voting is the most violent act anyone can participate in because voting is electing someone to hire someone to stick a government gun in our neighbors’ faces and force our version of reality on them at the threat of their very lives.
We stand ready to protect our Liberty and the Liberty of our neighbors, not destroy it, via any version of authoritarianism, of any age or place.
We are prepared with knowledge and force of arms to make war against and kill if necessary those who would destroy our Bill of Rights whether they represent domestic or foreign enemies.
We do not lie to ourselves, our families, our friends, our business associates, our descendants, our enemies, about these things and do not EVER tolerate those who would have us do so.
If the troops were fighting for our freedom they’d all be here.
We’ve gone from one insanity to another. Decades ago men would fight at the drop of a hat over nothing. Now there is nothing they will fight for, except false patriotism and empire and the lie of democracy or a paycheck and a retirement plan.
The creators of the welfare state knew full well what the result would be. They were creating inter-generational parasites that could be depended on for votes, guaranteed constituents.
The key isn’t to return to the 1950s and the ignorance of the past but to train all in reality, not the false pacifism that now soaks the human mind in cowardice nor in the fear or shame of anything that was forbidden by some ancient tribal propaganda that was also written as a control device.
FK – Give me a break. This is about control. Google is evil. Alphabet CEO Schitt or whatever tried to put hitlery in the oval office.
The racism/hate crap is as always just an excuse. The corporates and workaholic assholes that fund the commie front groups don’t want their human resources to have inconvenient thought patterns.
Hint: They don’t call us ‘human resources’ because they value us as human beings. And yes, they should be required to value us as human beings. There is no ‘right’ to treat a human being like a jackass or a robot or a resource whether it’s a govt. or corporate or whatever entity doing so.
The income tax in amerika is illegal. The 16th Amendment wasn’t ratified by enough states to make it law but the sec of the treasury at that time lied. An income tax is the second plank of the Communist Manifesto, thus it’s evil. It wasn’t even forced on the common worker until WWII and they never took it off.
It was a matter of time until google et al tried to shove all dissenters into some dark corner of the net where the average sheeple dumbass will never go, usually out of fear. They know the average dumbass is a herd animal. That’s how and why they do the crap they do.
This has probably been planned for a while and Trump may be part of it. The bombs are still falling in the Middle East aren’t they?
Cable and satellite weaponvision was a ripoff from the beginning, regardless of the commie infiltration of the news media.
A corporate workaholic asshole that’s addicted to money and the power it brings having ‘genuine moral outrage?’ Oh that’s a hoot. I’ll think of that the next time one of them is trying to shave every penny off my ass that it can.
Capitalist Bezos of Amazon fame bought the Washington Compost as some call it and its editorial policy(communist) didn’t change.
When the net was new it was mostly patriots. We had no where else to go. It was a matter of time until the amerikan communist insurgency tried to dominate or destroy it through infiltration or actions like these. No surprises here.
It’s all because of our failure to hunt them to extinction. We should’ve kept the troops home from Korea and Vietnam and killed the commies here first. Trump needs to bring the troops home now and open “Liberal”(commie) trash season.
But it’s more profitable for all involved to keep bombing the Middle East.
Propaganda has always been a mix of truth and lies. And it’s ‘all’ propaganda. The ‘alt-right’ is just an excuse for controlling speech, just like ‘the war on terror’ or ‘the war on drugs.’
And stop calling them ‘progressive,’ and ‘liberal’ and ‘left wing.’ They’re statist authoritarian commie trash that took on those cute names to hide their evil from the stupid. When you use their labels you help them wage war on us all.
No sacred cows, or a new global Bill of Rights
Barry Bright March 21, 2016
In light of ‘current events‘ and despite the predominate human nature we need a global Bill of Rights, based upon the Bill of Rights sponsored by the anti-federalists in the post revolutionary years of the United States which was of course part of the evolution of government in this country and the world.
Of course it’s not ‘perfect’ and I’m not expecting to see it instituted in my time in this realm, but here we go anyway:
Self defense against tyranny from any government or human institution, or organization or common criminals or otherwise is the most basic natural born right any human being possesses and is the basis of this document. This document is an acknowledgment of that pre-existing natural-born right, not an allowance or a creation of it.
The right to free speech on a free press or on a free internet or on the airwaves or in any spectrum electromagnetic or other wise is sacrosanct and not to be brought into question. This means there are no ‘sacred cows’ nor any groups or ideologies whose motives cannot be brought into question.
The right to bear arms of whatever kind against government oppression/criminals or common criminals is not to be brought into question. In other words there’s no such thing as an ‘illegal weapon.’ This stems from the fact that self defense, the most basic right that any creature possesses, is the natural born right that this entire document is based upon.
All governments are to be secular and to have no say in individual religious choice insofar as that choice doesn’t infringe on the Liberty of others. As humanity evolves so does its need for more freedom, liberty, concepts that of course have evolved over time. Any and all governments that refuse to recognize this reality and continue to oppress, enslave, control, populations in the name of whatever ideologies shall be and must be opposed and ended.
No worker shall have money, currency, credits, wages of whatever form of modern or new definition stolen from their paychecks before they even reach their hands by any government on any level.
Taxes shall be ‘value added’ or a sales tax only, not to exceed one percent of the value of the item or goods being purchased. All governments shall be held to a budget that puts the needs of the common people first which means roadways and affordable fuel are more important than bombers or ICBMs.
Property rights of individuals are to be sacrosanct. The most important ‘private property’ anyone owns is their own life, health, safety, and no one, anywhere, anytime has the ‘right’ to take that from them or deny them their most basic right, that of self defense. Eminent domain shall only be applied when true and dire public interest is at stake. Any who are proven in a court of law to profit from such takings shall be executed.
Cases to be tried by juries shall consist of a jury of peers from the local area. Judges shall never advise the juries that they must abide by ‘the law’ as it is written as sometimes laws are wrong and simply evil. Judges shall advise juries of their right to nullify any and all law except that which protects the natural born most basic rights of all described above.
Prosecutors and police that are proven to have railroaded any innocent person into prison for political or monetary or any other gain at any point in their careers are to be executed.
All cruel and unusual punishment is banned as the primary job of prisons is to keep violent humans who have been convicted of committing crimes against persons or their property off the street. Only elected, appointed or hired government employees that have broken their oaths to uphold the natural rights of human beings and the Liberty of all shall face execution except for murderers that have been proven beyond all doubt, not on circumstantial evidence, to be guilty.
Judges may not have exclusive power to decide what is evidence and any defendant may demand that all pertinent evidence be seen or heard or examined by a jury via an outside body not subservient to the courts.
Appeals processes in criminal cases are not to exceed two years and are to be immediately turned over to outside agencies not affiliated with those that brought the prosecution.
No government shall spy on its citizens or seek to examine their personal papers, memories, minds, records whether held by them or others nor require backdoor decryption nor surveil their activities in any form by any means without a warrant generated by a court of law nor may any home or private or company office, facility or vehicle be searched without a warrant or probable cause.
Warrants shall only be issued upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. Crimes of possession are hereby banned. Excessive bail or fines for minor cases or non-violent crimes is banned. Forfeiture of property of those accused of crimes by law enforcement agencies or any other bodies is forbidden.
(And let’s just borrow directly from the U.S. Bill of Rights because I’m not sure the next two paragraphs could be worded any better.):
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.
Voting shall be considered as a privilege to be earned not a right. All who wish to vote must prove citizenship in the country, state, district, precinct, however defined locally and must prove they are literate in the local language of that area and take a test to prove they understand the theory of limited government and individual liberty and the right to fight back that is possessed by all.
This is necessary because of the human trait that often prefers slavery of whatever form to Liberty, a trait which often has no problem killing, torturing, abusing, slandering any who oppose their efforts to enslave the rest of humanity in their dogmas, rituals, religions, collectivist/statist governments including those not herein mentioned or defined.
All candidates for public service on any level must publicly provide on the internet or whatever technology replaces it a resume to include their past voting records, their affiliations, memberships, names of each and every donor/PACS/or other cute name for influence where the donation exceeded the amount a common citizen might be expected to provide.
Debates on the presidential level for any nation must take place within a week of the primary, caucus or election that is held on the same day nationwide, be available for broadcast on all available outlets, be preceded by the presentation of the candidates’ resumes to the people and of donor lists. Moderators may not be members of the ‘mainstream news media’ and a panel of interviewers must consist of real activists that have proven they have a true in-depth understanding of ‘the issues’ and limited government and its reason for existence: the maintenance of human Liberty. In other words, there’s no such thing as a right to work openly or surreptitiously to erode or destroy the rights of others.
Whenever candidates/government employees(elected, hired or appointed public servants) are elected, hired or appointed they must take an oath to uphold and defend this Bill of Rights. Those with records of not doing so are to be immediately tried for treason against human Liberty and executed before their evil is allowed to filter into any government.
Pure or impure forms of democracy, socialism, communism, and other forms of authoritarianism are banned. Dictatorships and monarchies by whatever name or description are banned.
All governments exist for the Liberty/benefit of the common people and shall be organized by a ‘separation of powers’ to include two houses of a congress, an executive with strictly defined and limited powers and a judicial branch, but with personal responsibility enforced upon each member for the defense of human Liberty. All failures to uphold their oaths to such shall be responded to with a speedy treason trial and execution via the granite gallows to be erected in front of every government building.
A special agency shall exist for the investigation of government corruption and no other law enforcement purpose shall be assigned to it so it cannot be turned on the people. This agency shall be under the purview of the local militia force that shall use the granite gallows to deal with cases of bribery or corruption within the force or agency itself.
No more wars for profit. Those waging such wars will be tried by a local or national or international criminal court, whichever catches them first, to be followed by their execution.
All young people(adults of legal age) before their 25th year shall be conscripted into basic military service for at least six months of active duty and two years of reserve training because so many would choose to not even be able to defend themselves much less the Liberty of their neighbors. All able bodied members of society who value human Liberty and show consistent support for this Bill of Rights are considered to be in the militia for the duration of their lives.
The military arts and physical fitness and health maintenance shall be taught in the schools along with the basics that produce literacy in language and mathematics and the arts because sadly it is often human nature to choose lifelong ignorance on these issues which can lead to the enslavement of those around them.
The Oath of fealty to human Liberty to be taken by all elected, hired or appointed public servants:
“I recognize the right of those who have elected, hired or appointed me to kill me if I degrade or attack or infringe their most basic right, that of self defense against me, or any other entity or institution, in any way or form. I shall never allow anyone to call me an ‘official’ for fear that would cause them to think I hold real power over them, rather my primary task is to ensure good government that sadly is sometimes necessary for the benefit of Human Liberty, property rights and the free society it fosters.
“If serving in law enforcement or the military I shall never enforce laws that impinge, attack, abridge the most basic right of the people, the right to fight back against and kill if necessary those who would enslave them or enslave them further. As a hired public servant my first responsibility is to this Bill of Rights which means arresting any who seek to attack, impinge or abridge any of its contents.
“I take this Oath and promise to uphold/enforce it upon myself and my fellow public servants upon pain of death.”
Obviously I tried to update according to current concerns and allow for a few future ones. My own definition of the Second Amendment can be found here.
How to enforce this? Until we develop true interstellar flight or make the military’s black budget space force public we use Australia as a global penal colony. All those that wish to exist under or rule an authoritarian system are flown there by a B-52 and kicked out at 20,000 feet with a poorly packed parachute. If the tiny number of Australians that value human Liberty don’t want to move we can always fall back on Antarctica.
FK – Water always seeks the lowest level and takes the easiest route.
Trump is a demagogue who knows how to channel the water in the latest quest for the idiot vote. He may have had a ‘come to heyzeus moment’ and developed a conscience but I wouldn’t bet a moldy sandwich on it. Just saying in the past that he was ‘friends’ with the klintons is enough to turn me off regardless of whether he meant it or it was just for ‘business.’ I can’t respect liars and commies should be hunted.
Rand Paul was the only candidate that’s even in the ballpark of what a president is supposed to be. Cruz has a good voting record on some issues and was endorsed by GOA but his wife’s ties to Wall Street kept me away from the polls, or the ‘caucus’ here in Kentucky that was set up to help Paul.
The commies want the illegals here so they can get them to vote commie. The rest is disagreement and see the next paragraph…
NAFTA was the watershed for the amerikan middle class or blue collar class. They, the corporations, want desperate workers who will do or say anything to get or keep a job, show up on time and never ask inappropriate questions, in short, tolerate being treated like jackasses or robots. It doesn’t really take much since the submissive have been surviving to breed for a very long time.
Oh well. At least we have candidates that are closer to an understanding of the Bill of Rights than ever before. But that will depend on how much of a faker Trump is won’t it? My deep inner gut tells me he’s dangerous but maybe that’s just the years of cynical accretion on my soul talking.
At its real roots America was always about making a buck. We just got lucky and that tiny minority that actually cared about Liberty was successful in forcing a Bill of Rights on the con-stitution. Otherwise it’s loopholes would’ve long ago led us into total slavery instead of the partial slavery we exist in now. The Bill of Rights is what makes us exceptional and until the ‘conservatives’ and ‘tea partiers’ et al get this in their little brain housing groups and stop choosing from among the various versions of authoritarianism we’ll stay in this gauntlet of ideologies that is the human condition.
Amerika has been an empire since, really it’s inception, but we lost the republic in 1865 when the bad guys won and they raised the black slaves into another form of slavery and lowered the rest of us to match them. When you can’t un-volunteer from something you volunteered for what are you?
