All Our LIves Are Most Important

And by that, I mean, all of us have the undeniable right to protect ourselves, our families, our friends, our way of life.

No one has the right to take that from you. No one has the right to tell you what limits you are restricted to – in order to defend your life, limb, family, friends, property.

It is vital that We, The People, understand the US and state constitutions. Because too many do not.
Those elected into positions of trust, those elected and appointed to fill positions of authority, those joining the military…… every one of them take an oath to defend, honor, obey and maintain the Constitution.

We know some percentage of them do not. Either they think they know, do not know, care to know – exactly what it means for this United States to be the most unique on this planet. There is no Utopia here – even so, we are supposed to follow the rules as established throughout history.

But bad laws are not laws. You are not bound to honor bad laws – not by The Almighty. No matter what anyone else tells you. Man is imperfect and always will be.

The choice of tools we would use to protect ourselves is threatened by people. And those people are wrong.

I attended today’s Town Hall in the Parkton American Legion hall this morning and the rally down in Aberdeen afterwards. I feel fortunate to be a part of both.

As I mentioned in a chance to speak to the crowd, I faced down the barrel of a gun pointed directly at me over 40 years ago. I disarmed him. Not by weapons of any kind and not by force but with my voice. I fully expect that was a very lucky event, for me. Two weeks later, that much was confirmed when the man who did that committed suicide with that gun. A Derringer. I never told my parents as I am sure they would have been very, very upset. I don’t know what they may have done, if anything.

That was a serious turning point for me. It is and was an incident that made me fully realize that it is imperative to become totally aware of your surroundings, aware of your friends and family, aware of enemies and criminals. And be as prepared as you can.

That is vital to understand. You cannot defend or protect others, such as your family, friends, relations, neighbors and others if you are dead.

The Second Amendment is not alone in this. It is not the sole issue. The order, or sequence, of each of the Bill of Rights is completely irrelevant. When your ability to defend your life & family is threatened (Third Amendment), your ability to protest and peaceably assemble is denied (1st Amendment), just two examples, then how do you protect yourself from criminals and/or people in government who are irresponsible and lacking in moral compass?

Wake up. This is completely serious. This is not an argument on the appearance of rifles, ammunition limitations, definition of “assault rifles” – these are complete misdirections anyway – this is a whittling away of your God-given right to maintain your existence and your freedoms.

Period.

Obama Said What?

From Michelle Malkin:

Obama administration advises new French president: For sake of world economy, don’t raise taxes and increase spending

Sounds to me it’s a mixed message.

Emily Has Yet To Get Her Gun

This Washington Times article is part of a series where Emily Miller is attempting to purchase and obtain a handgun that meets the criteria specified by D.C. lawmakers.

This might make one decide whether to live in, or leave, our nations Capital.

Sheesh. So much for the Heller decision.

POed POTUS

Obama Has Heated Argument With AZ Gov Jan Brewer

Not a good teaching moment there, BO. Unless, of course, you’re showing us how thin skinned you happen to be. For that, you excel.

UPDATE: Forcing Smart Meters Upon Us

It started in California, this year. About a month ago, when some customers removed their Smart Meter and replaced it with an analog by a liscensed professional electrician. So, this was done properly in accordance with technical requirements, in other words, money was spent to have a professional do the job right. This isn’t about getting electricity without paying for it.

Wendy Sarsfield, a representative from the public utility PG&E, kept insisting that saftey was the main issue for which power was not restored to the homeowners. Upon hearing this, Board Member after Board Member seemed to come up with a viable, workable solution, but it was always unacceptable to the PG&E Rep. After several minutes where the PG&E Rep began sounding like a broken record while refusing to come to any reasonable solution about restoring power to people’s homes (One of which was just to add people to the delay list and reinstall an analog meter until the California Public Utilites Commission-CPUC- finished creating an opt out program), one Board Member cut to the chase……

Get ready, new home construction is expected to have these installed as a matter of course. But when they come after your existing home to “upgrade” your meter – what are you going to do?

Read that whole updated article at GatewayPundit and watch the entire video to see the play-by-play (around 5 minute mark) by everyone and the PG&E representative.

Do you really want the power company to turn off your A/C during the summer and heat during the winter? Because that, and the fact that there are not new power generation plants planned for construction, is what they intend to solve their problem of providing enough energy for everyone’s consumption.

UPDATE: In British Columbia (Canada), it appears their smart meters will track power usage against specific devices by category. How about that. Forget about privacy – even in your own home, government – local or otherwise – intrudes deeper into your lives.

Legal Gun Sales To Mexico By US Govt

From Hot Air:
The money line:

…the big spike in arms supply to cartels didn’t come from local gun shops at all, but from the US government approving a rapid increase in direct sales from manufacturers to the Mexican government, whose purchases got diverted to the cartels — a fact known to the Obama administration all along.
