Winston Churchill said
Si Vis Paceum Para Bellum

Sam Adams, more than beer

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen”
Samuel Adams

Lincoln on power

"We must prevent these things being done, by either congresses or courts — The people — the people — are the rightful masters of both Congresses, and courts — not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it —" Abraham Lincoln

In any other state Christy would be a Democrat.

Then we have this from Proof. He comes up with some of the greatest stuff.

Yep, I'd say that pretty much fills up the clown car. And maybe a semi trailer too.

Source  Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership

What to Do When Your Doctor Asks About Your Guns
Health care professionals misusing their patients’ trust to push a political agenda of gun control is called an ethical boundary violation.
You may encounter the question in your health plan’s standard health appraisal questionnaire. Even though it may not be of your doctor’s making (your doctor may very likely just be going along with the guidelines of his or her gun-hating medical organization such as the AAP or ACP), it’s still part of your permanent medical record. Or your doctor may have a personal prejudice against gun ownership, shaped by her training in medical school or residency. Either way, it is important for people to know some very important facts:
• Doctors receive absolutely no training about firearm safety, mechanics, or tactics in medical school or residency. They are completely unqualified by their training to advise anyone about guns.
• Gun ownership is a civil right. A doctor’s abuse of his position of trust to pressure you to give up that civil right is professionally and morally wrong. In some states it is illegal. You DO NOT have to tolerate it.
• You as a consumer have great power in the doctor-patient relationship. Do not be afraid to use it.
This does not include cases where a doctor casually talks with you about guns out of a common interest you both may have.
So what can you do when your doctor or your health plan starts asking you about guns in your home?
A range of options is available to you, some sending a more powerful message than others.
1) Politely refuse to answer the doctor’s question or the health plan’s questionnaire item about guns. You can either explain your discomfort with the question or decline to give a reason.
2) If the gun question(s) appears on your health plan’s routine health assessment questionnaire, file a formal written complaint with the health plan. Every health plan has a member complaint process, often prescribed by law. Your complaint will be registered and the health plan will respond.
3) If the health plan responds with the excuse that their questions about your guns are standard medical practice that they must follow, you can take the complaint to the next step—file a written complaint with your state agency that regulates health plans. In California you would follow the complaint procedure on the Department of Managed Health Care website ( ). It’s your right as a patient.
4) If your doctor persists in asking intrusive questions about guns in your home, you can also file a complaint specifically against him or her with your health plan. Such complaints are taken seriously, and the doctor will be called to account for it. Having one or more complaints about ethical boundary violations on her record will make her think twice about doing it again.
5) Internet consumer rating sites have created another way doctors can be publicly rated on the basis of service, attitude, and behavior. Some commonly used rating sites are, and RateMDs.
6) Increasingly, doctors’ pay from Medicare and insurance companies is tied to how they score on patient satisfaction surveys. These are often sent randomly to patients, but you can request one to fill out. You can have a powerful impact on a doctor’s conduct by reporting the doctor’s unethical questioning about your guns.
7) If the doctor’s conduct is especially offensive, you have the right to submit a complaint to the doctor’s licensing board. This is an agency in your state government that holds the ultimate power of licensure over your doctor. A quick internet search for “medical board” in your state should take you to the official form for filing a complaint. This is a step that should not be taken lightly.
Remember when writing your complaint to be polite. Explain why you find the doctor’s or health plan’s behavior unacceptable. Include the powerful points we’ve discussed:
• Your doctor is professionally unqualified to give expert advice on firearms
• Your right to own firearms is a civil right that is none of your doctor’s business
• A doctor misusing his or her authority and trust to push a political agenda of gun control is an ethical boundary violation. Such unprofessional conduct is not acceptable.
Your right to own a firearm is enshrined in the Constitution. Don’t let any doctor or health plan intimidate you into giving up your civil rights.

The Feral Irishman: I Now Am Awake To The Cancer That The Left is in A...:  Submitted guest post by 'A Friend Of Irish' Conservatives: There’s More to Understand AFOI The recent deci...

 I've been watching the destruction of this once great country for years. Voting and writing letters to assorted congress critters doesn't have any effect. It's going to get to the shooting part, probably a lot sooner than we think or want.

Hell Explained

This is a classic.

The following is an actual question given on a University  of 
Arizona  chemistry midterm, and an actual answer turned in 
by a student.
The answer by one student was so 'profound' that the 
professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, 
of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well : 
Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) 
or endothermic (absorbs heat)? 
Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's 
Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) 
or some variant.
One student, however, wrote the following: 
First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in 
time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving 
into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving, which is 
unlikely. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul 
gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. 
As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the 
different religions that exist in the world today.
Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of 
their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than 
one of these religions and since people do not belong to more 
than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. 
With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the 
number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we 
look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because 
Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and 
pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to 
expand proportionately as souls are added.
This gives two possibilities: 
1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at 
which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure 
in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.    
2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of 
souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop 
until Hell freezes over.
So which is it?   
If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my 
Freshman year that, 'It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep
 with you,' and take into account the fact that I slept with her 
last night, then number two must be true, and thus I am sure 
that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over. The 
corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it 
follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, 
extinct..... ...leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence 
of a divine being which explains why, last night, 
Teresa kept shouting 'Oh my God.'

Codrea: ATF’s Left Hand Doesn’t Know What Its Right Hand is Doing

David's new gig.

A complaint filed Tuesday in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia seeks an order to compel the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to comply with a Freedom of Information Act request filed in March and ignored in violation of federal law. The FOIA sought copies of policies and rulings relied on in enforcement and determination actions . . .

 Sought in the original request were copies of
instructions, policies or guidance given to agents who serve as hearing officers, or to their superiors, in connection with determining whether an FFL’s license should be revoked or suspended, or issuance of a license be denied, or a civil fine imposed; BATFE’s Federal Firearms Action Policy and Procedure … as currently in force; opinions or positions or determinations as to how complete a firearm receiver must be before it becomes a ‘firearm’ (the point when a ‘receiver blank’ becomes a ‘receiver’); opinions, rulings, policies or interpretations as to which [part] is the receiver for GCA or NFA purposes; opinions, rulings, policies or interpretations relating to or interpreting the term ‘readily restored’; [and] instructions, policies, criteria or guidance relating to granting or denying a remission or mitigation of a forfeiture or of a civil penalty.
The information requested is critical to ensure that citizens don’t suffer penalties due to conflicting rulings. Without clear policies, enforcing compliance and demanding accountability can become inconsistent and arbitrary.

The ATF needs to bring all of these procedures to light. We need transparency.
