Sometimes, I find things I just gotta write about on Facebook. Today’s one of those days where something I read makes me gnash my teeth and weep for the future. Because if these kids are it, we are royally fucked. Fucked, I tell you. This is the post that got my panties in a bunch… written by a young man who probably thinks he’s enlightened and evolved. I don’t know, maybe he is… but his theories scare the hell out of me..
OK… Let’s talk about Nazi Germany for a hot second. The image below is of Nazi soldiers forcing civilians… other German Citizens… past the bodies of Jewish women (also Germans) who had been starved to death. They were soldiers following orders.
Now, I love the American soldier. They stand between me and a burqa, which is not stylish at all. They sacrifice their lives, their health and their mental health to give me the freedom to say what I am about to say. If you think for a hot second that I am going to have complete and utter faith that they will act in my personal best interests… you’ve got another think coming. They follow orders. They are soldiers. They follow fucking orders.
You don’t really that the evil that exists in the world stops at our borders, you’re not that naïve. I’d have to ask you to explain to me why FEMA, a branch of Homeland Security, has a base complete with coffins in the Port of Albany? Why does Homeland Security have I’s own militia? Why the fuck are we arming the IRS?? Stop drinking the Kool Aid, Jonestown citizens. For the record, my ill-informed youthful friends… we fucking interred Japanese Americans during WWII because they didn’t look like we do. We did not do this with either Italians or Germans, and make no mistake, that’s because they were white.
An assault rifle is still just a rifle. In my hands, an AR-15 is going to get my rocks off at the gun club. I’m not going to head down to my local school or any rally and shoot up the place. I have no criminal background. Miss Shannon owns a 7 mm rifle. I could take down an elephant. I’m not going to do that either, but it makes you think twice about breaking into my house, doesn’t it? Lord knows, I’ll probably be on an FBI watch list because of this post. Stop kidding yourself that keeping weapons from law abiding citizens is going to curtail crime. If you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I’ll make you a hell of a deal on.
To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens. Hitler said it, and now our American government officials and presidential candidates are saying it, too. They say it every time they advocate for taking away the right to bear arms. Stop telling yourself it couldn’t happen here… it totally can. Be capable of defending yourself and your children from an attack, either foreign or domestic. Don’t bet your life that a soldier, despite my deep regard for their place in society, is going to disobey an order to attack. The Posse Comitatus Act, which essentially disallows the military from acting as law enforcement officials domestically, is not going to save your ass. You are betting your life and your personal freedom on the premise that a solider is going to think like you do. Maybe they do, maybe they don’t. They’re people, trained to follow orders. Quite frequently, they are kids hoping for the GI Bill… Just think. You can do it if you try.
We have recently passed a law that requires girls to register for the draft. I have no problem with that… Equality is about having all the same rights, privileges and responsibilities. Ask yourself… why is this on the table just now? Currently, our armed forces are entirely volunteer. What’s coming that the draft for women is now compulsory? I can speculate, but I don’t know for sure either. I assure you, it’s classified information but somebody somewhere, whether it’s the CIA or the cupcake brigade has a little wiggle that something wicked this way comes.
In support of gun control… I’d say that if you’ve made it to a no fly list in the last, say- ten years, maybe you ought not to be able to purchase a fire arm without an act of Congress. But the American people should have the ability to defend themselves from all enemies, foreign and domestic. If you are afraid of guns, don’t shoot one. I won’t even call you a pussy bitch. (Mary, I said the ‘p’ word, lol) Hell, Miss Shannon is afraid of the dark. (There are things that go bump in the night. Trust her.) And mice. Little bringers of pestilence and general yuckiness. Yuckiness should totally be a word. My 7mm holds four bullets in its clip. That isn’t going to get me far in a combat situation. When will I be in a combat situation? I don’t know because that information is far, far above my clearance level. My fellow Americans, put down your Kool-Aid, pull your head out of your asses and realize that there are very real, valid threats facing us. Baa, baa, little lambs. Now grow up to be Americans, not sheep.
