The best weapons
you can afford
April 14, 2008
Is life so dear, or
peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Ė
Patrick Henry, from his famous
For most people, yes, it is.
Someone sent me a copy of
column written to try to get the sheeple to prepare for another possible
economic, societal, etc, etc., Ďcollapse.í Donít get me wrong, the
likelihood of such is higher now than ever before, all the gold selling
financial advice authors notwithstanding.
Generally Joe Americanís column has some good advice that should be
followed no matter how good the times seem to be, and we still have lots of
large SUVs, HDTVs and golf courses to our credit in this country. But be
that as it may I still want to look at one issue that is a continuous burr
under my saddle.
First this quote from
Joe Americanís column - "Buy the best weapons you can afford. The purchases
will create a paper trail, but donít let that stop you. Any government
coordinated gun control effort that causes you to voluntarily
surrender(italicized in original) your guns means you really didnít
need them anyway."
Of all the decent advice in that column that one makes the least
sense. Maybe itís just bad sentence structure. But letís look at that
Ďvoluntaryí part a little more closely. When they tell you to turn in your
weapons thatís when you need them the most. You had better kill the lowlifes
who want you disarmed, because they know that after they render you
defenseless, they will pay a very low price for whatever they decide to
steal from you. Thatís what Ďgun controlí is about. They couldnít give less
of a damn about our safety. They only want to make sure theyíll be safe from
Several states have passed laws against the govt. confiscating guns
in an emergency because of
happened in New Orleans after Katrina. If things get bad enough, or if
the right lowlifes get control of the govt., whether national, state or
local, those laws will be ignored. They will send prostituted goons around
to all homes in their area to make everyone 'safe' by making sure they don't
have any ol' evil guns to shoot anyone with.
A few questions need to be asked of those who are still un-pacified
enough to pay attention to reality. If the goons come to your house will
1. Stupidly surrender your weapons to them and hope for the best.
2. Attempt to kill them.
3. Lie to the stupid cowardly bastards who should have killed the
superior who gave them the orders and tell them everyone in the house is a
pacifist "Liberal" idiot who'd rather die a horrible slow death than harm a
hair on the head of any desperate thief, rapist, serial killer, etc. This
means you'd better have a good shovel and a flower garden that needs
fertilizing because the same evil garbage that wants you disarmed will tell
you that you had no right to kill the lowlife who was raping your
14-year-old or stealing your food and send you to prison, or to what passes
for prison, as they do now in
4.Organize with the small minority of neighbors who understand what
must be done and set up an ambush for the goons, kill them all, then proceed
to hunt the garbage that gave them their orders.
5. In a worst case scenario, no. 1 will have taken place and they
will come around to your house to ask for 'volunteers.' These volunteers
will really be taken down to the city dump to be done away with because
local resources are unable to deal with, feed them, and all happy slaves
must be fed. After they dig the nice ditch they are told to dig they will
stand in wide-eyed amazement as the guards who brought them level their
weapons in their direction, then they will piss their pants and die as the
machine gun bolts slam home.
Human nature and history tells that no. 5 is the most likely
scenario. Maybe after it's done a few times a minority will catch on and
begin to fight back. But without real resources or outside support any
insurrection will have to be immediately successful or it will fail. That
means when you go to kill them you don't play games, and you don't play by
The short of the all this is this: the siege mentality is no-wheresville.
It is death. It is slavery.
Those who donít want to grovel as slaves need to come to grips with
the fact that the evil garbage, the Clintons and Obamas, and
McCains, of the world, who want to see their neighbors, uh, serfs,
disarmed, are on the same level as that rapist your 14-year-old could shoot
and kill if she had the right training and upbringing from you.
They deserve the same treatment.
Some may say, ďOh I could never do that. I believe in treating my
neighbors as Iíd like to be treated.Ē
Well, if you have a conscience, and they donít, you would want
someone to put you out of your misery if you became like they are, wouldnít
And you had better understand, they donít share your belief system,
no matter how flowery their speeches are, or how much Ďhopeí they promise
you. They are power-mongering liars. And
this is the world they want you to exist in. And donít miss the
When I was
in England in 1988 I read a news article about a robbery. Some Brits
were having a party which was crashed by some people they didnít know. The
crashers proceeded to carry the hostís stereo out the door with not a hand
being raised to stop them. This was before the stupid Brits turned their
guns in to the govt. goons in 1997. The rot was already there.
Examples of such stupidity and cowardice can be found throughout
human history and society. The meek inherited the earth because they didnít
take the chances the brave did. But they pay a high price by surrendering
their Liberty, their dignity and their property. When you donít have the
right to fight back, you only own what they allow you to own, until they
decide you donít need it anymore.
We have plenty of rot in this country. And too many have yet to
recognize and treat it as the cancer it is.
Iíve spent several hours doing something I hadnít done in years,
watching a TV serial. Months ago I read about a show called ďJerichoĒ but
hadnít taken the time to look it up. After someone told me about
Joost, and then
CBS and other networks archiving their shows online nowadays, I decided
to check it out. The first night I watched the first 5 episodes or so. Iím
still hooked and ready to start on season 2.
Some of the Jericho shows are obviously thrown together, and some
of the stuff the characters do is immensely stupid and was obviously written
or affected by Hollyweird types. But a lot of the show makes sense, and
should make the viewer think, not least of all about why the powers who own
the networks are putting such a scenario on the weaponvision?
Not to divulge too much about the story line, but early on
the only guy in town who owns a ham radio and very much spare ammo is
portrayed as a mental case. But itís funny how the town's sheeple suddenly
see a need for what heís been squirreling away. Later on the perpetrators of
the Ďterroristí events are portrayed as probably being Ďdomestic
terrorists,í and Ďmilitia types.í
But donít let this bias stop you. There are more interesting, for a
TV show, plot twists in store. Just try to get past all the soap opera
written in for the soccer moms.
But the show is putting forth one mentality I despise, the one
already mentioned above, the siege mentality. Most of the sheeple will cower
in their homes, skitter down to the govt. bread, water and rice lines when
they need to, if there are any, and wait for the inevitable.
The inevitable will probably be another dark age. It may be a shiny
well fed dark age after a while, but it will be a dark age nonetheless,
because it will be a society of sheep who stupidly take their beating until
the police arrive, or until the police get tired.
Thatís a little less than I care to afford.
