CHECK THE FACTS

ASSAULT “TYPE” WEAPON
I have been seeing this phrase “Assault Type Weapon” in the news almost every time a criminal or nut case shoots someone.  They always describe the firearm that was used in the shooting as a weapon that is “Assault TYPE”

From Fox news today:

“Banks said the suspected shooter – who was armed with an “assault-type rifle” and a handgun — also was dead inside the club . . . ”

“It appears he was organized and well-prepared,” the chief said, adding that the shooter had an assault-type weapon, a handgun and “some type of (other) device on him.”

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/06/12/police-say-around-20-killed-in-shooting-at-orlando-nightclub-more-than-40-taken-to-local-hospitals.html

This is a term that has not yet been explained in any way that makes sense.  First, an Assault Weapon is any weapon that is used to ASSAULT someone.  And among the things that have been used to attack people and kill them are:

Screwdrivers
Knives
Nail guns
Basball bats
Ice picks
Pistols
Rifles
Bombs
Hammers
Cleavers
Fists
Glass shards
Metal rods
Acid
Boiling water etc . . . etc . . . so on, so forth

And these people that are insisting that there are assault type weapons are not being specific. In fact, in reality, anything that can be used to attack someone is an assault weapon.  And therefore should be phrased as THE WEAPON USED TO ASSAULT, not an assault TYPE.

WHAT IS AN ASSAULT TYPE WEAPON?

This overlooked fact will be lost on the public, who assume that an assault type weapon just looks like whatever your imagination cooks up.  I am guessing, that they are referring to a rifle that appears to be in the style of an weapon only legally used by those in the military, among others.  In other words it “looks like” a type of weapon.

I’m assuming they are referring to fully automatic firearms, which are, and have been illegal for someone without a special license to actually own.

These firearms will shoot multiple rounds of ammunition, one after the other, with one trigger pull held down.  They are legal for our military to carry and use, and only people who go through an extensive process can become licensed to own one.  I am assuming this is what an “assault type weapon is”  in the minds of those that use this phrase.

The point is, you, as a regular person in the United States cannot just run out to the store and buy one.  You as a regular citizen cannot just go get a machine gun to use.

A style is not a category of function.  There are many weapons made to appear to be scary looking, but only shoot one bullet at a time, and many of them little bitty .22 shots.  They appear to be like an assault weapon, and YES they can be used to assault someone.  But a knife is an assault weapon, and appears to be just exactly what it is.  You can chop veggies with it, or you can kill an intruder or not with it.  The function is what you actually  use it for.  The description is that it is a knife.  The style is what it looks like:

Actually I was wrong there.  It’s nothing but a knife until you stab someone with it.  After you stab them, it then is an assault weapon.  But not an assault “type” weapon.

No, wrong again.  It’s the weapon used to assault them with.  Oh my, I’m getting confused.  It’s all sooooooo confusing.  Which is the point, I think.

Do you see what is being done here with the English language?  It’s an important distinction that is being used to create a whole new category of scary weapons for the public.  And it also makes perfectly legal to own weapons, the ones that are not fully automatic weapons so scary that they can move to ban having them.

They don’t ban nail guns.  And a nail gun can be used to shoot someone with.  OR NOT. It can also be used to nail things together. I hesitate to mention it because now some criminal is going to be going to Lowes or Home Depot to get one.  Heck, a saw blade can kill someone, albiet very slowly.  Sheesh.  Why don’t they gather up all those phsychos?

People who are American citizens go through a legal background check to be able just to carry a pistol.

People who are American citizens are fingerprinted, background checked, and VERIFIED as to whether they are a felon or a wife beater or a murderer, OR a phycho.

And lastly, People who are American citizens also are required to take a training course which doesn’t JUST teach how to safely shoot a firearm, but teaches when, where, and what you are not supposed to shoot and in what situation this is permissable.  The courses for just THAT part take hours to complete, and you have to pass a test after this and if you fail this test you do not get a carry permit.  You are supposed to be prosecuted for illegally applying or somthing like that.  Don’t hold me to this statement, I’m not sure about the specifics on being prosecuted for that.  Anyway, you should be.

So before you ignore this term that the media is using, the term “Assault Type Weapon”, think about this.

That regular rifle that someone got for Christmas one year to go target shooting with is being defamed with a crap phrase made up by people wanting to have all guns confiscated.

It is also being put on a list for weapons that need to be banned by those people in power in Washington and elsewhere that are pushing for abolishing our Constitution the way it is worded.  Common hunting and common target shooting rifles are being put on this list.

https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/4269/text?q={%22search%22%3A[%22\%22hr4269\%22%22]}&resultIndex=1

And it’s also pretty darned obvious to me that “Assault Type Weapon” is not the only “catch phrase” that the corrupt media outlets are using nowdays and for quite some time.

Pay attention to the way people say things.  Don’t assume they say what is true.
I heard somone on PBS one time refer to a not automatic weapon as an automatic weapon when it was NOT an automatic weapon.  They acted as if they didn’t even understand the function of one or the other.

It’s important as hell what come out of their mouths.  So, if it’s fair for people like that to lie about the truth, then it’s fair to TELL the truth in response.

And that is the meaning of THAT.

Why do we have global warming and rising oceans? by George Jenias

This article is from the writings of Mr. George Jenias in response to Al Gore and Obama

If you’re in the desert and there’s one green tree growing, and there’s fifteen people there, all of them will be trying to get under the tree.  If you’re talking about air pollution, the tree doesn’t breath air, but it does its part in cleaning air.

We have in the United States and all over the world more factories, hotels, motels resturants, houses, outbuildings, garages, sheds, airports, storage areas.  We have millions of roads that have to lead to every one of these buildings from one end of the world to another.  And we have to concrete them, blacktop them, coat them, right up the the doorway of everything.

On a day when it’s a reasonable temperature, between 85-90 degrees, take your shoes off, walk down a concrete road, or especially a blacktop when the tar is starting to get hot.  You can’t take it.  So run back in your house with an asphalt shingle roof, turn on your air conditioner that makes more heat outside so you can cool your hot feet off inside.

If you have temperatures that are around freezing, everybody builds a fire or contributes to energy use in one form or another.  Which produces pollution in one form or another.  If you cut down all of your trees to build your fire in the wintertime to keep your ass warm, what shades the earth, what keeps the air cool, what stops land erosion?

Additionally from there were set off hundreds of Atomic bombs above ground In the United States (number) and elsewhere in the world (number).  So how much pollution, radiation, heat, and dust were thrown into the air from those wild ass ideas of how to destroy our world?

AND nobody questions this when wondering why so many children have come down with various kinds of cancers and dreaded diseases including immune system disorders. They even have research hospitals dedicated to “finding out” how to cure all this.  Like you don’t already know what causes it.

http://blog.nuclearsecrecy.com/2012/08/08/the-height-of-the-bomb/

These same people that have figured out  how to destroy our world have made it thier lifes goal to figure out how to kill us with all their pollution and the things that they convinced us would be good for us.

And then they tell us that if we want to live, we must pay them millions of dollars to treat all the diseases that they caused in the first place.  Which doesn’t work because for every pill you take to cure one thing there are ten side effects that cause something else to go wrong with your body.  Like all of your good ideas before.
———————————————————-
Now because you cut down all the trees and plowed up all the land without ever once thinking that all this DIRT that you eroded is going to go to your river, and then to your ocean.  If you don’t believe that every time you see a flood look for pretty clear clean water.  You’ll never see it.

All the land around all of the oceans is continuously being washed away, slowly being degraded by the destruction of topsoil.  If you go and dig a pond, a lake, that has no other escape for the water but evaporation you will go back in 50,60,70 years, and this pond that you dug 15-20 foot deep will have mostly filled in from the water runoff from the land around it.

The ocean tides come in and go out every 24 hours.  Just stand in the current of that wave and experience the force of it.  It is even much stronger during a storm or a tsunami. See if you can imagine how much soil, rock, and debris that might take into the ocean.  Even better watch the footage of the Japan Tsunami and see the houses and cars being rushed away.

Now, go get you a bowl.  Fill it to the rim with water, and see how many handfuls of dirt you can put into it before it runs over.  I have never heard of dirt, stones, and debris washing UPHILL.

And we would have to go down to the ocean banks and drag thousands of warships and planes off the bottom of the ocean from when we had a storm and they sunk.  I’ll bet they displace a lot of liquid. So what makes you think the rocks and dirt are going to come back stupid.

THE “AFFORDABLE” Healthcare “Plan”

CoubertSelfPortait

I didn’t know this stuff, but I want to know

This was an email that was sent by a man to ********* after seeing him speak on TV about Obamercare
——————————————————————————————————–
My reaction to even thinking about the “Affordable” health care.  But first, a background
on welfare abuse from the perspective of one that has witnessed a lot of it.

NOTE: This is NOT about disabled, senior citizens, military vetrans, low income working class people, those that have lost a job and really cannot find work,  or those in a temporary situation such as the death of a spouse. It is for those who are completely capable of working but would rather sit around like they are owed something.

I am remembering that my spouse and I have sat in front of the TV, and every night that we watch the news about the healthcare proposed changes, we got more and more depressed about those things that seemed as if we could do nothing about.

Being retired and having a fixed income means that it does not change to make up for anything the government decides to add on to it.  That means you get a check for the same amount every month and it never changes.  It doesn’t get more when the food prices get higher, or more when taxes get higher, or more for emergencies, or more for anything.  Medicare, and health insurance that doesn’t cover office visits for us. And if there is a yearly deductible of $1000, then we have to sell something we own to cover that. We are running out of things to sell.

In our long working lives we have seen the welfare system create a generation of people that are parasitic on those in the United States that work hard for a living, who work to pay their own way, EVEN when sometimes not able bodied enough to do so.

During a time when I was too old to be doing it, I cleaned up (and repaired) many of the government rental houses that were trashed by them.  I once fixed the walls in a rental home that had at least 500 holes in each wall.  Another had a floor that was so slick with grease that you could not walk without falling down in the kitchen. In the bathrooms of these places you dare not sit on the toilet for fear of catching something that you couldn’t get rid of.  All the toilets were stopped up, all the places were filthy.

DCS would come in every so often to inspect the hourse while they lived in them. The DCS official inspector would say:

This house is not fit to live in, that these people need a house that has screens on the windows, (but it had screens when they moved in)
The carpets are filthy, they can’t live in these conditions (The carpet was brand new when they moved in)
The door frames are broken (They were not previous to the tenant living there)
The commodes don’t flush, the lines are stopped up. (Okay, they were working when they moved in)
The linoleum in the bathroom is torn up (Again, it was not, it was brand new when they moved in)
The wood is rotten around the tub (It was brand new when WE installed it before they moved in)
The walls have holes in them (I personally patched some that appeared to have been shot with a shotgun)
The kitchen drains don’t work (same thing)
The stove is full of grease and is a fire hazard (no kidding)

And anything else that you can think of that is messed up, neglected, and destroyed such as the safety bannisters on the entrance steps and the steps was the responsibility of whomever owned the property. But the whole point of this list is that the house, according to DCS rules was unfit to live in.  Which meant that the welfare recipient now got a whole new home! Actually it turned out to be a whole new house to destroy. I know this because I was one of the two people that repaired these homes and cleaned them afterward.

I would find old mail they had left that showed what their incomes from the governement checks had been, and bank statements that showed what they had wasted that money on, such as wide screen tv’s and much more.

At that time I did not even have a home of my own, even though I was working over 10 hours a day, no weekends off, and had no health insurance.  I did this for many years before I could afford to have a home of my own.

At that time, I learned that these young people, with children that they had birthed, even though we now in modern times have birth control, were getting from the government, (and by default from my pocketbook), rent, food, benefits and such.

And that these benefits totalled more per month than I made in TWO months.

I thought:  “I took birth control and never had a child out of wedlock.”
I thought:  “I do not even have the time to attempt to correct these problems.”
I thought:  “They get this for free, and STILL trash the house?”
I thought:  “They are younger, stronger, and have a place to live.”
I thought:  “They are having babies, and going to the hospital with them”
I thought:  “What am I going to do if there is an emergency?  I’m not a minority”
I thought:  “Now that I’ve ruptured the tendons in the bottom of both my feet,
how am I going to pay for it?  They dont’ have any problem. They have health insurance”

My point is that the money was and is there until you give it all away to some lazy, good for nothing person that will:

Only have indiscriminate sex and doesn’t bother to use birth control.
Can afford enough food stamps to feed themselves to an obese state and  . .
Eat until they weigh 400 pounds and claim “fat-disablility” and at the same time running around the grocery store in an automated cart.

ARE disabled because they are so overweight they can’t hold their weight up without damage, or causes heart problems.
Have babies one right after the other without getting married to keep the government check coming each month.
Make the government (i.e. US the taxpayers) pay for it all.
Pretend to have a disability long after they have recovered
Then sit around watching tv at home instead of getting a JOB.

And I still pay taxes that pay for their babies, fat, housing, medical, and lazyness, greed, and sloth. And I have had to watch people like that on YouTube demaing their “FREE STUFF”

It is all out of control, and so are they, and so is this government. It’s called “RE-DISTRIBUTION”

And among the things that cannot be controlled:
Birth Control without an abortion.  (But then each child ups the check amount so that’s not expedient)
Birth Control although there are ump-teen kinds you can purchase over the counter.
Birth Control even though your free health care can get pills for that.
Birth Control because closing your legs might be one option

Eating because eating the most fattening food will help a lot with that cholesterol problem
Eating because eating more shows how much control you have over your greed
Eating because even if you get too fat to stand on your own two feet, at least you don’t have to work

It angers me badly that the government whines about there not being enough MONEY. There always WAS enough money.  It has been given and is still being given away.  The people who work to support all this are angry too, more than enough.  It is being wasted by the billions, millions, TRILLIONS.  You can’t even imagine in your brain what a million dollars even looks like can you?

We have watched our benefits and those privileges that were originally intended to be given to United States citizens, be arbitrarily handed over to people from other countries that are NOT citizens, NOT tax payers, and do not even know the English language.  And many of them marry U.S. citizens to do just that.

And some states are now even voting for or allowing non-US citizens to VOTE.  Fancy that. They get to vote on things that affect MY life.  They get to help decide what laws are happening, and what affect the lives of a US citizen.  How odd is THAT?

It should be a requirement that if you marry here and live here, then you should learn English and become an American citizen.  And not before that should you be allowed to gain those privileges. At least I thought that was the way it actually worked.

In fact, many of them do not even like the United States, and say so quite openly, even though they live here and benefit from what U.S. taxpayers pay taxes every year for.  Social Security was never meant to be used for anyone that wasn’t a U.S. citizen.  But now I hear that is not the case any more.

And they say that the Social Security System is in danger?  How odd.

And what about the jobs that are given away every day to other countries? That’s a whole separate subject.

And what about borrowing money from countries that do not even like Americans?  You do know that if you borrow money, you have to have collateral.  What is the collateral for THAT?  THE UNITED STATES? And when you default on a loan?  Do you lose your country?

And what about buying United States property outright?  How soon is it that the whole of it is owned by other people in other countries?
————————————————————————————————-

We watch the news all the time now that we cannot work.  We are amazed, mollified, upset, angered, horrified, and any other word you might apply to this situation. We found out some of the reasons why people that work cannot make ends meet even though they work like dogs to do it.

We watch our tax money already being used to finance people who breed indiscriminately and then let us pay for their fun PARTY time and lazy slothful ways. We have paid this way our whole lives, but in the early years this was not the norm.  So we have a reference for government benefits.  These benefits do not somehow apply to us.  In order to recieve those kind of benefits you have to fit a category that is not totally us. We make just under $100 too much to qualify for the “FREEBIES”

We are not even middle class.  We have an ancient house that will never be done working on. We got it because it was cheap and a wreck, and a place to have a home, hoping to make a lot of improvements to it over the years. And can’t even afford to get the foundation fixed.

We worked to have our house.  Nobody bought it for us.  And we worked so very hard to pay for it that we damaged our bodies to pay those bills.  Now we need help because we have paid the bills all our lives, and they are bleeding everyone like us totally dry to pay for the people on welfare already.

Do you honestly think that we can afford to pay more taxes to furnish health care for those that are the way they are by choice?  As far as I’m concerned, before they start thinking about taxing US citizens to pay for them, they had better weed out those that are really needy. In other words:

THOSE THAT DID NOT CAUSE THEIR DISABILITIES. THOSE THAT DID NOT CAUSE THEIR DEPENDENCY ON OUR PAYCHECKS

And let me be very plain on the subject.  Government money IS our money. But it’s made out to be as if it is a bill that we owe this group called government.

I am getting to be the age where not having an income is a real worry.  If I were young and strong like I used to be, it would not be a problem.  And I worked, and I still work.  I resent giving part of my work and life to any lazy person. In fact I resent it entirely.

Find some other freaking way to pay for them.  I’m tired of it. And I can’t see paying for someone else’s health care by spending any part of my life doing it. Even if I’m not totally covered myself.  If I can’t afford to pay for the total health care that I have, then how am I supposed to cover the extra taxes to pay for their’s?
=========================

If this sounds like nothing like an article on The “Affordable Care Act”, then lets go there.

Your average person, us included, doesn’t even know what this complicated bunch of papers, “the healthcare bill” MEANS.  They have not read it, and should they attempt to do so, it is so full of legal jargon and wording the average person could not understand that you need a lawyer to interpret it.

And Nancy Pelosi said “You’d have to read it”

http://dailysignal.com/2010/03/10/video-of-the-week-we-have-to-pass-the-bill-so-you-can-find-out-what-is-in-it/

And they do not trust the people in charge to really “interpret” it.

Additionally, most of them also do not have the time to read it, even if it could be understood.  They just know what they want.  I am a part of both of those groups.  I am very articulate, can write like a fiend, but understand all that?  Good grief, what those opposed to the bill must be having to go through trying just to make sure nothing out of the ordinary is being done.  How could you police such a thing.

But for the person that works for a living, and doesn’t have health insurance, they are puzzled that the welfare recipients have this and they do not, even though they are working like fiends to keep the bills paid and food on the table quite literally.  They don’t have time to do anything but that.  In my case, when anyone would ask if I had seen a certain tv show, I’d tell them I did not have time for that either.

They do not feel that they can do anything about it.  They feel as if the rich and the powerful people in the United States, and the poor lazy greedy people can get what they want, and the rest of us have to take whatever law or thing is decided from up high.

I believe this is another social program that is fixing to go the way of what I previously described. If welfare programs can’t be monitored for those that abuse it, what makes anyone think that healthcare payed for by other working people is any different?  At least with Social Security and Medicare (basic), you are expected to pay into the system yourself for a period of time before being able to draw out of it.  OH, I forgot, they changed that TOO!

From The 5,000 Year Leap—A Miracle that Changed the World

By W. Cleon Skousen

keyThe utopian schemes of leveling [redistribution of the wealth], and a community of goods [central ownership of all the means of production and distribution], are as visionary and impracticable as those which vest all property in the Crown. [These ideas] are arbitrary, despotic, and, in our government, unconstitutional. ~Samuel Adams (p.119)

US Constitution Series 7: The Proper Role of Government is to Protect Equal Rights, Not provide Equal Things

Equal Opportunity, Liberty of Enterprise, NOT Equal Income, NOT Free Stuff

redistsocialismillustratedIn Europe, during the days of the Founders, a popular idea was that government should take from the “haves” and give to the “have nots” so that all might be truly “equal.” However, the American Founders believed that this idea contained a huge fallacy.

FROM WIKIPEDIA
The Federalist Papers are a series of 85 articles and essays written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay promoting the ratification of the United States Constitution. Seventy-seven were published serially in The Independent Journal and The New York Packet between October of 1787 and August 1788. A compilation of these and eight others, called The Federalist; or, The New Constitution, was published in two volumes in 1788 by J. and A. McLean.[1] The series’ correct title is The Federalist; the title The Federalist Papers did not emerge until the twentieth century.

What is the Constitution Of The United States and Bill Of Rights?

I’m reasonably sure that if you asked your average school child you would not get as detailed information.  But the information is out there nonetheless.  The reason these documents are so very important, is that they are the basis for our freedoms here in the United States Of America.  And from what I’ve seen in the past years, humans of different sorts are whittling away at them at a rapid pace.  Here are some links to informatinon on the basic documents.  I will add any valuable links to this article as I find them.  Most were found from a Google search.
