Dr. Jeff sent me this, and it is good

Did I put this up a couple of years ago? I don’t care, it needs to go up far more often.

    I think your sense of time is altered.

    I have this in my favorites and I think I probably got it from here. I vehemently disagree with Penn on some things(only God knows what Teller thinks) but those who are defending the 2nd amendment are dead on correct and those like that smarmy elite punk Roger Spelunkensplatt, or whatever the sanctimonious turds name is, are on the side of the criminal and the tyrant. They are exactly the people the 2nd amendment was written to protect us against. However since the law doesn’t seem deter such an arrogant and supercilious crank like that I guess the 2nd Amendment will have to go from parchment to lead.

    I was reading this as I was writing the previous comment. Here is something rather profound from <a href=former liberal and award winning play-write Davis Mamet.

    Karl Marx summed up Communism as “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” This is a good, pithy saying, which, in practice, has succeeded in bringing, upon those under its sway, misery, poverty, rape, torture, slavery, and death.

    For the saying implies but does not name the effective agency of its supposed utopia. The agency is called “The State,” and the motto, fleshed out, for the benefit of the easily confused must read “The State will take from each according to his ability: the State will give to each according to his needs.” “Needs and abilities” are, of course, subjective. So the operative statement may be reduced to “the State shall take, the State shall give.”

    Go read the whole thing. It’s all second amendment goodness(with the exception of the agreement about outlawing machine guns). But other wise it is right on. And by all means answer the poll question. When I did 87% agreed with Mamet position on our ability to protect our own selves

    How about another real juicy quote that echoes something I have often said:

    The police do not exist to protect the individual. They exist to cordon off the crime scene and attempt to apprehend the criminal. We individuals are guaranteed by the Constitution the right to self-defense. This right is not the Government’s to “award” us. They have never been granted it.

    The police aren’t crime preventers(other than whatever deterrence factor the marked squads provide). They are janitors who clean up the mess when they can’t get there in time. Oh and by the way, as I know I have cited previously here, the police do not have a legal duty to protect you.

    In fact here are about half a dozen cases that make the same point you are on your own

    And these don’t even get to the real purpose of the second amendment to protect ourselves from third world thugs like Obama.

    I always thought that, even if the 1A does guarantee or recognize your right to say what you want, there were laws against knowingly falsifying information. Yeah, that 2A may well be called upon sooner than later.

    Precisely! I love my people. They make so much sense!
