What The 2nd Amendment is not

. Though I spend almost no time with mainstream media, my secondary sources keep me abreast of their content. They are currently hammering the ‘gun control’ issue. Victim disarmament is the goal; all means possible the tool. The article below by Jacob Hornberger from Mises Institute is excellent, but has a couple of unfortunate assumptions built in. As much as I like what he expresses, I am using the altered font to I can interject in key places. First off, please remember: the current “conversation” is predicated on an event that very definitely did not happen as the official story depicts. Whether it was a staged false flag or complete hoax is not clear, nor overly relevant. EVEN IF IT […]


AN OPPORTUNITY AND A WARNING. THE CHOICE IS YOURS. From Russel “Texas” Bentley To My Family and Friends, and All Good People of the USA, You may not know it yet, but the world changed on March 1st, 2018, an old era was ended, and a new era begun. In very great part, the meaning of this new era is up to you. On that historic day, Vladimir Putin revealed to the world that the US military is now obsolete, and no longer capable of “projecting power”, committing war crimes, or intimidating and destroying smaller nations around the world. That day has ended forever, one way or another. The US military is still completely capable of the mission it needs […]

disarmers on the march

The NRA leadership became Swamp Creatures decades ago. Rubbing elbows with the sold-out, bloated political prostitutes of the Potomac Swamp instead of inhabiting the America of their constituents clouded their vision. The word “compromise” means each side gives away a little in order to get along. Those who would have us disarmed and defenseless have been compromising with the NRA to take away legal gun ownership detail, by detail, by detail for half my life. An example of compromise would be to give up bump stocks in exchange for select fire. It would cost no more to sell AR-15s that had SAFE-FIRE-BURST-AUTO than the ones that are purchased across the country today. But those who would be our masters do […]

sunset on the empire

I refer to the 1700’s boast that “The sun never sets on the British empire”. Today the U.S. military “is in 130 countries. We have 900 bases around the world” — Ron Paul, 2011. What students of history know that others seem not to is that empires end. Their enemy is not external, but internal. Hubris Hubris describes a personality quality of extreme or foolish pride or dangerous overconfidence, often in combination with arrogance The Russians announced their fully-deployed advanced weapon systems recently. The entire USofA military-industrial-complex is operating a generation behind. Either the NSA, CIA and others charged with knowing this were too busy spying on us, or the political class in The Swamp continually chooses to ignore reality. […]

The Woodpile Report

Blackstone wrote in the 1760s, “The right of self defense is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction”. The quote is from his Commentaries on the Laws of England, a primary source for our Constitution of 1789, and the Second Amendment in particular. Since the early twentieth century however, DC has imposed and narrowed limits on privately held arms with the consistency of a drumbeat. Several […]

Why the Left Won’t Win the Gun-Control Debate

from National Review By David French   March 5, 2018 2:56 PM   Angelina Lazo (center), an 18-year-old senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, protests in favor of gun control in Coral Springs, Fla., February 16, 2018. (Jonathan Drake/Reuters) It’s too hard to persuade people to willingly surrender the right to protect their own lives.Last week I wrote a long essay in The Atlantic that represented my best effort to explain “gun culture” to those who may be more hostile to gun rights than, say, the typical reader of National Review. I began by describing threats to my family and how a person’s decision to carry a weapon is often directly tied to personal experience of real danger. Today, my […]

either trade crosses borders or armies do

Ignorance of economics and human action is not a sin, but wielding power from a position of ignorance is. A couple generations ago the steel industry convinced the District of Criminals to erect tariffs on imported steel with completely predictable results. 1) People in the USofA paid more for steel. 2) Manufacturing of steel products cost more. 3) Imported goods made with foreign steel became more competitive. 4) Protected steel producers did not upgrade their equipment. 5) Steel producers in other countries did modernize; become more efficient. The misguided protectionist tariffs have numerous other problems, as do the currency wars along with other foolishness making all of us poorer and creating international friction. Now, a Trade War — Is a […]

my first Instructable

I have seen a few that captured my interest, but what really caught my eye was their contest for first-time Instructable authors. They didn’t mind at all that I had published most of it here in one way or another and at my own instructable website The Fixer .biz. So I re-crafted my coffee making posts into one targeted to their audience. I do think that exercise improved the product.
