200% of the signatures required to boot this Liberty Objector out of office through the recall process have been submitted. Bye bye John Morse, president of the senate and lead Liberty Objector in Colorado.
Let us cast this Objector to Liberty out on his ear. It’s the ideology of John Morse in their legislation for Colorado that one man can be held responsible for another mans evil deeds. It’s people like him that set up the situations where 20 children can get shot in the face un-opposed by even one lawfully armed and free citizen. He favors the current public school policy of lamenting funerals over celebrating hero’s. Lets let Liberty Ring in public schools. If Liberty were not obstructed by laws designating our public property non-constitutionally free places. (can you believe we stand for that!) then perhaps 4 or 5 of the school teachers would have been armed and this madman’s fantasy could have been avoided or greatly reduced. I am for celebrating hero’s over lamenting funerals. Let us ridicule the ideology which includes forced membership in the Church of Safety Through Weakness. Limiting our teachers and administrators to only running, hiding or fighting back with scissors is irrational, evil and just plain heartless. Do you know why it’s such a joke to go to a gun fight with a knife? Because it’s sooooo stupid. Let us end the tyranny these Objectors to Liberty have established on our public property. Lets us push this ideology back into the dumpster of history’s failed Darwin Awards to which it belongs. I am for Liberty, no apologies.
While the “Gun Show Loophole” continues to be tossed around. Notice the news never explains that all commercial sales at gun shows already are put through a NICS check. The only sales that are not put through the background check are those between private individuals. Yet, the “loophole” term is tossed around in a way to convince people that you can go to a gun show and buy whatever you want from whomever you want without a background check. It’s a lie, a deception. The only sales of firearms without a background check are those between private individuals. If you trade with a neighbor or co-worker, there is no background check. Like wise, if you go to a gun show and rent a table (they are swap meets) to sell your unwanted items, you are allowed to sell your private property, including a firearm without putting your buyer through a background check. It’s a private sale, your not a gun store, your not under the same restrictions as a gun store. According to reports, the new law still allows sale between private individuals without a background check. So, what have they done?
The problem is laws hindering Liberty, making some citizens 2nd class (not completely free) like teachers and school administrators for example. The problem is your and my public property being made a preferential treatment zone for criminals and non-free Liberty Objecting zone for law abiding citizens. The predator goes to the easy prey, where the prey is weak and neutered by Liberty’s Objectors of any defense. As fantasized, he has his way with the prey, prey the church of “safety through weakness” created. Created by Liberty’s Objectors. I lay at the feet of these church zealots not the madman’s act, rather that he is allowed his force to kill so many without forceful objection. May we in our time, rather than lamenting the deaths of many at the hands of madmen, come to trust teachers and administrators with full citizenship. We should be celebrating the hero Principle leaving madmen like Lanza in a pool of his own blood. Of course, it wouldn’t serve the purpose of disarming America, so more will die and the cycle of ignorance, the cycle of hindering Liberty as part of an evil advance against Freedom continues. There is no objective morality in using force of the state to prevent a free citizen from using deadly force to protect themselves and those they love against deadly force. By addressing a problem created by Objectors to Liberty in a way that does not remove Liberty’s hindrance, we do nothing. Cowards and Conspirators with Madmen win.
We deserve a more objective reasoned governance in this country. What are you willing to do about it?
Posted in my Facebook feed in response to using children from Sandy Hook to legitimize extra constitutional executive order anouncements today.
“Are we to be surprised? A prefix image to warm our hearts to action without results. Smaller magazines wouldn’t have had any impact at all on Sandy Hook. How long did the madman Lanza lay on the floor dead before anybody entered the room to see him dead? If he had to use a 6 round magazine, he could have merely changed it 4 times and accomplished the same result. 4-12 seconds. Are we to suppose this is effective change? This has nothing to do with children and everything to do with striking a blow against Liberty, against the Liberty of teachers and administrators to be free full citizens, armed if they choose. It’s about the reduction of choice, the reduction of Liberty, the preservation of criminal preference, the sacred “gun free zone” at any cost, even the cost of more children’s lives. How many more people must die while we placate this insane philosophy? It is pure madness to suppose that defenseless peoples are more safe. While I respect ones individual right to choose, it is pure evil to impose defenselessness upon another. In our day to day activities, it’s important to never allow this immoral position to assume the high moral ground. Do not stand for it. A working definition of religion is devotion and adherence to an ideal regardless of any evidence or lack thereof. So defined, we are clearly dealing with religious zealots. Do not allow them to force upon you their doctrine. There is no defense for opposing a teacher or any other citizen stopping the madman Lanza in a pool of his own blood. And I assert these opponents to Liberty are defending the capability of future madmen like Lanza to do exactly as they please. If the status quo cannot be maintained, then future incidents requiring immediate government action will be fewer.
We must not forget Rom Emanuel (D) confession of strategy:
My name is Dave Thacker and I’m doing something about it.
After 4 minutes and 20 seconds of excuses and other low information voter mindless jibberish, Joe Biden gets around to confessing: “the president is going to act, there are executive orders that can be taken..”
What is next? Liberty does not die all at once, it’s step by step. One small step at a time. And those that suffer it’s loss often participate voluntarily.
Below quoted from: History.com “this day in history” segment.
“…January 30th….. In 1933, president Paul von Hindenburg names Adolf Hitler, leader or fÜhrer of the National Socialist German Workers Party (or Nazi Party), as chancellor of Germany.
The year 1932 had seen Hitler’s meteoric rise to prominence in Germany, spurred largely by the German people’s frustration with dismal economic conditions and the still-festering wounds inflicted by defeat in the Great War and the harsh peace terms of the Versailles treaty. A charismatic speaker, Hitler channeled popular discontent with the post-war Weimar government into support for his fledgling Nazi party. In an election held in July 1932, the Nazis won 230 governmental seats; together with the Communists, the next largest party, they made up over half of the Reichstag.”
Socialists and Communists working hand in hand in 1932 Germany? No, say it ain’t so! Could it happen here? Has socialism run a-muck again? In the 30’s it was deep hatred of Jews, today we are not too friendly to Israel and we hear much similar hateful speeches describing employers and the rich. Hate is hate no mater the target, it’s ugly. And, Germany is a good example of how easily Liberty can be uprooted and replaced by Tyranny while people cheer.
“The 1938 German Weapons Act… the law restricted ownership of firearms to “…persons whose trustworthiness is not in question and who can show a need for a (gun) permit.”
Additionally “Jews were forbidden from the manufacturing or dealing of firearms and ammunition”
Yes, under Hitlers socialist Germany, law was enacted stating you must “show a need”. Sounds just like the enemy’s of Liberty today doesn’t it! The old battle to enslave or execute peoples by first disarming them has never ended. While it’s true the Germans were racist-socialists and the current leadership is anti-capitalist socialist, to gain power the methods are the same, a scapegoat is manufactured to blame all of societies woes (Even though mostly caused by government). It’s not long before there are Purges & reeducation camps. Have they successfully convinced you that employers and entrepreneurs are to blame? We hear about it on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNBC and CNN on an almost nightly basis.
Another important point on “need”. No where in our US constitution is the word “need” used to describe our rights or privileges. Use CNTL-F to search the US Constitution: here Sadly, this campaign to judge maters and make law in the USA according to need started a long time ago. It was written by Karl Marx “to each according to his needs.” Read Karl Marx in context on the wiki page: Here It’s part of a fascinating paragraph where he describes the highest goals of his society as “after labor has become not only a means of life but life’s prime want;”. You might notice (if you take time to read it) that “Pursuit of happiness” is never suggested as an important value. I think Karl is describing the perfect slave, his highest want is labor. The same wiki page linked above also describes Karl Marx’s Communism as “scientific socialism”. Not my words mind you. These people and the views they espouse and promote are dangerous. Can you reject the path they suggest?
Directly dictating our constitutional rights by executive pen, that’s a dictatorship. Perhaps we are a socialist dictatorship now? Have you un-wittingly supported the end of America? Have you hid your head from all the warnings? Are you sick for not doing enough to stop it? Do you even care?
It’s the normal condition of man around the world to be on average – dirt poor and subject to tyranny. It has remained that way throughout the ages with only rare exception. America is a great experiment to see if Liberty can triumph over tyranny on a long term basis. That experiment tests the idea of short circuiting the natural movement towards tyranny by establishing a non-centralized form of government. A non-concentrated management of the country were “We the people” can have meaning. Yet, we drift willingly to concentration of more and more power in fewer and fewer hands. And where are we? We are so soft now that the President can have his VP float trial balloons about possible dictatorial orders without fear of significant reprisal or political penalty. Our lives depend on fighting for Liberty day and night with our every breath and stroke of pen. When Honey Boo Boo gets higher TV ratings than either political convention, there is no question, apathy has become completely entrenched. It’s almost over America, what channel was Honey Boo Boo on anyway sweetheart?
When will they come for you? When will they come for me?
My name is Dave Thacker and I’m doing something about it.
What will you do about it today?
The perception of schools as sanctuaries from violence has been “blown up” by recent events and some believe it’s time for educators to literally take the situation into their own hands and carry guns.
……handful of states, including Oregon, Hawaii and New Hampshire, that allow people to carry licensed concealed weapons into public schools.
The report describes Utah’s long running choice to resist evil law breaking wackos with force, to protect our children with deadly force if nesasary. Certainly it would not be complete without an objector to liberty, self-defense and teacher defense of children. As reported by ABC NEWS – Carol Lear, the board’s director of school law and legislation, who stated “It’s a terrible idea…It’s a horrible, no-good, rotten idea.”

A company designed a flying car called the Mizar around a Ford Pinto and a the wings, tail and pusher engine of a Cessna Skymaster.
Google Chrome users may need to hit F5 (refresh) to view videos.
Here is the promo video for this intrepid product:
The designer Smolinski and his associate, Harold Blake, were killed in the resulting fiery crash. See the wiki page HERE. It’s reported there were 2 completed and 3 others under construction. I wonder if under some dusty cover somewhere there is another the Mizar Air Car?
The Aircraft/Car dream has been attempted many times, maybe you remember the Moller Skycar. Like so many others, it offered great promise to investors yet is reported to have never done anything but tethered hover tests in 2003. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against this or any other concept. In fact, I have some “kook in the garage” sketches of my own ideas for a garage-able flying car. I don’t doubt any nut-crackers* sincerity here, just recognizing the useful and acceptable shape of a car isn’t a very friendly shape for an aircraft.
I hesitated to watch this documentary because of the title. I am relieved however to inform you that it’s not a racist film but rather a film about how gun control is linked to the history of racism in this country. Having recently found a treasure trove of excellent documentary films by , I offer another excellent one for you to consider.
Genocide has an interesting history, it never starts with genocide, it is always preceded by gun control. Always preceded by the reduction of a peoples capability of self defense. Those that wish you to have a lower self defense capability are not looking out for your interests. Learn of the history of genocide in the film below. After the credits there are a couple of very worthwhile interviews.
