I will NOT be Ashamed Today and NOT Told By the President That I Should Be

Originally posted at: http://www.casida2014.com/news/i_will_not_be_ashamed_today_a...

I am not ashamed. This gun violence comes from violent people - and violence comes from poverty. Poverty of wealth, poverty of health, and poverty of spirit. The more poverty we have, the more violence we will have - it has nothing to do with guns - it has to do with violence.

I am sick and tired of politicians and the president trying to keep people on their knees - 'we should be ashamed of ourselves' says Mr. Obama. No we should not Mr. President - we have done nothing wrong and have nothing to be ashamed of.

Do not be ashamed of yourself. Do not be ashamed of being able to protect yourself. Do not allow these people who write and execute un-just laws with victimless crimes to keep you on your knees.

The only people that more gun laws will protect are criminals and the un-just use of force by the government. Most all of the weapons purchased in these recent incidents were purchased "legally" - how did those laws stop violent people from doing violent things? They didn't!

Be strong, be proud, and be free. And let's do something about the actual cause of violence - poverty of wealth, poverty of health, and poverty of spirit.

I'm with you!

Don't be ASHAMED OF YOURSELF! But don't hesitate to be ashamed to be located with these fools that HAVE NO CLUE what the heck their rights are, and why their rights are important; they are seriously inept and part of the reason for our loss of liberty.

These people don't know the first damned thing about rights, BUT EVERY OTHER COMMENT OUT OF THEIR MOUTHS is an implication that THEY SEEM TO BE EXPERTS ON THE TOPIC OF RIGHTS.

So when people claim to "have a right to education or healthcare or food..." or ask "Why does anyone need a 100 round magazine?"

^These people ARE CLAIMING to be experts on the topic of rights, when in fact THEY DO NOT KNOW THE FIRST THING about rights!

We should be ashamed of those damned fools! And aim to make sure OUR KIDS are not ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE DAMNED FOOLS!

Common Link in Every Mass Shooting

There is one common link in every single school shooting, the active shooter was taking selective seratonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs).

Most SSRI drugs already carry a black-box warning for "suicidal ideation". But many want that expanded to include "homicidal tendencies", due to the mounting evidence.

We've had guns for hundreds of years, but school shootings didn't start until children were prescribed SSRIs on a large scale.

Something is dsyfunctional here ....


I have no problem, in theory, with individual gun ownership.

But something is terribly dsyfunctional with our Country, where only in the USA do we have daily, mass-murder, from gun usage and easy gun accessibility ... and then think that no possible alternative exists.

It doesn't matter what other (developed) Country that we are talking about: socialist, capitalist, socio-captialist, communist, or dictatorship....the high-frequency, everyday gun violence only exists here in the U.S. (or within War-torn nations that are in a state of civil-war ... usually caused and/or funded by the U.S. CIA or the U.S. Pentagaon).

It is no secret that Americans are the most uninformed, unenlightened, uncultured, ignorant species to ever walk the face of the earth. We are taught to believe: that Science is "faith", that Faith is "Science", that Americans are "superior" than other human beings, that giving all our money to Wall Street robbers is a "good thing"(?), that Violence is a legitmate way of solving problems (or just irritations), that lack of knowledge is "strength", and that peace and understanding is "weakness", etc.

And we are bombarded by the act of murder everyday on TV, on the Movie Screen, on Video Games and XBoxes, and then think that this is normal, acceptable behavior. We are constantly brainwashed into thinking that we have to murder people in some far away place around the World -- it is our duty to do this....and "heroic".

America is the land of total insanity.

Until this mass neurosis is solved, then the matter of a few simple things like: a) background checks before you can own a gun, and b) gun registration, seems reasonable and uncontroversial to me. Americans have proven over and over and over again that they just cannot be trusted with violent weapons in the their hands.

And while I agree with the conceptual idea of forming militias to combat an over aggresive government, the fact is that our government today is so militarized and weaponized at a high-tech level -- that no mere citizen army could ever possibly begin to fight it. Those guys have Drones, Chemical Weapons, spy cameras, Tanks, automatics, riot gear, and FBI hit squads, etc. So how can some guy with a gun ever possibly stand up to that! We are long past that point here of any technological parity with the government. If they want to get you, they can, and they will, anytime they so wish (regardless).

In the meantime, the people who do have guns just use them on defenseless bystanders-- whether its a school full of children, a McDonalds, or domestic murder (widespread), or like Aaron Hernandez just for 'respect'.

That is what the DNA of America has produced: garbage! We just can't handle guns. That fact gets proven over and over and over again, every single day. No other country is like this (gun violence).

Abstract arguments and philosophy aside, this Country is just too dysfunctional, too emotionally infantile, too neurotic, too brainwashed in violence, and too stupid ... to handle guns.

It must be something in the air here. Ever since people arrived here, we started shooting Indians. Then we started shooting Mexicans. Then we started shooting ourselves (and everyone in foreign lands too). The we started making movies about shooting people. Then we started making computer-programmed XBoxes about people shooting people. How nice....Americans make quite a poor species.

Americans FAIL any basic responsibility test.

Jeez... talk about classifying a whole group of people. I'm sorry but you've been here for over six years so please explain what possible excuse you could have for thinking gun registration and background checks are a good idea?

Individualism-
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
e.e. cummings

my answer...

> " so please explain what possible excuse you could have for thinking gun registration and background checks are a good idea?"

1. Background checks: If someone is an insane, violent, motherf*cker, then why put a gun in his hands? Don't you have to demonstrate some level of mental competence, respect for human life, emotional stability, and responsibility first -- before being allowed to have a hellish weapon of such instant murderous violence? Seems to make common sense to me.

2. Registration: Nobody complains about the fact that we have to have our automobiles registered, licensed, and pass formal safety inspections every year -- because automobiles are also murderously dangerous instruments. People understand that not just any moron should be allowed to get behind the wheel of a car and go buzzing off down the highway (and also that not all cars should be allowed on the road). So let's be consistent. It is the same public concern, same issue.

These things do not take away the rights of competent people, they just mitigate some of the avoidable tragic behavior caused by nutjobs.

I have no problem with that.

Are you really paying attention to this site?

You said, and I quote, "Registration: Nobody complains about the fact that we have to have our automobiles registered, licensed, and pass formal safety inspections every year".

I've seen people complaining about exactly this issue, numerous times in the past year. It has even started me thinking about whether I should continue this charade, and stop displaying brightly colored pieces of paper and metal about my vehicle.

They definitely take away the rights of competent people.

Do you need to pass a background check before we allow you to keep your fingernails? It's the same damn thing, these are just extensible fingernails. Stating that you want to declaw any of us for any reason exposes yourself as a lover of tyranny. That's not just my opinion, it's logic.

It still doesn't sound like liberty, baby.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

"Americans FAIL any basic responsibility test."

Are you speaking from personal experience?

"Americans (currently) need to be protected from themselves, and

I'm the protector."

Yet again, that doesn't sound like liberty, baby.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Need to be protected from nutjobs...


So you cannot be drunk and drive a car. But you can be a drunk and own a gun?

Let's just be consistent with public safety issues.

TwelveOhOne's picture

That's not really consistency

Consistent with your previously-observed anti-liberty rhetoric, perhaps, yes.

Ownership is not operation of, for one. Please, educate yourself better before opening your mouth and removing all doubt. Again.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Your correlation is dysfunctional.

Switzerland has one of the highest rates of gun ownership in the world and violent crime is so low that they don't keep statistics on gun crimes.
So, we don't have "...daily, mass-murder, from gun usage and easy gun accessibility..."
Guns don't cause murder to happen. Crazy people do that.
What is making crazy people?

Good Job!

You get a plus one from me. "Be strong, be proud, and be free."

Ron Paul 2016

"If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun."—Obama

The drone-striking hypocrite should be ashamed.

Obama only likes guns when they're used for his campaign rhetoric or carried by his Secret Service detail.

If guns are banned in DC, how does he have people whocarry them?

Blows the mind, this "I'm unstoppable; you all will be stopped, frisked, fined, molested, kidnapped, and murdered" attitude he has.

I'm not really interested in comeuppance, but I'd really like to see someone else in office. Preferably a Dr. Paul.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Why listen to his nonsense?

He is the president of the Federal Government, nothing more. He is not my president any more than the president of Philip Morris is my president. I do not look to either for advice, especially unsolicited.

I have time only for comments from him germane to his duties in service to the people, as defined in the Constitution, others I expect to be addressed by Congress as needed for impeachment.

Never a moments doubt

I think there's plenty of people in this country that are not falling for their b.s. about any of this.

We knew it was coming. Theyve been ramping it up for years.

"People who love freedom and the rule of law are violent"

Huh?!

They are counting on enough people actually being so weak minded that they believe that.

I think we outnumber those people. I dont think too many people are actually falling for any of this.

They want us to think that everyone *else* is though.

Comes from mind-altering

Comes from mind-altering drugs too.

plenty of prosperous people are violent

look at the president, he kills with drones.

I am ashamed to be an American

But not for the reasons Obama says

Funny how the guy who kills people with drones...

thinks he can pass judgment on our whole country. WTH?

hahahah!

So true, Carl, I had to post about it.

BOOM!

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Look to Swiss posture

Look to Swiss posture regarding guns, Mr. President. You will find no shame wherein an entire population is armed, and has been never invaded since its inception.

What should we expect

From a narcissist?

On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.

You Mean THAT Guy?

...the one who has laid claim to being:
"GOOD AT KILLING PEOPLE"?

Who joked about potential suitors for his daughters and the fact that he has drones at his disposal?
