First they'll disarm you and then...

The latest travesty in the UK regime's campaign of harrasment against Phillip Luty, owner of the and author of this book
As David states and as I may have mentioned before, this in no way is just about guns...

Pearls of wisdom from Old Hoborn

I'm not interested in right or left anymore. Yesterdays politics.

I'm interested in Liberty or Authoritarianism.

Unlike Sikhism, Judaeism or Buddism, Islam seeks to tell me what to do and how to live my life. Right now. So it can fuck right off.

Well said old man.

Japan to abolish cash?

This article discusses a possible solution to Japan's deflation and but omits to mention the obvious wider implications: Total surveillance and control of your wealth and earnings by the State.

Hitler was a socialist

I can't remember how exactly I came across this article, but here it is and it is a barnstormer.

I have linked to the writer John J. Ray in the "Required reading" section.

Further proof that the Country that used to be Great Britain

is seriously f*@ked. And I state this not with reference to the deeply stupid, intrusive and oppressive laws that brought the Brits to this absurd state of affairs, but in response to the simpering PATHETIC comments by the parents quoted in this debacle.

"It is a shame but that is the way it is all going now, you are not allowed to do a lot of things because of rules and regulations.

"A lot of the parents think it is a great shame. There are people who have been there for many, many years and they are upset about it, although they do not blame the school.

"It is sad that you are not allowed to take pictures of your own children.
"It is all to do with the pictures getting into the wrong hands and the school has to follow its own code of conduct. "I am sure the school do not like it just as much as we do."

Shorter subjects: It's a shame but what can you do?

These are the words of a broken people...

The wisdom of a trained social futurist...

Anyone who possesses the staggering conceit to blog a post that leads with "Dear Conservatives: Your fellow Americans demand an answer..." is deserving of the same degree of ridicule and scorn as...well...someone who - in all seriousness - touts their bona fides as "one of the few trained social futurists in North America".
The rest of her bio really says it all, i.e. Never. Had. A. Proper. Job.

And really takes some gall to write stuff like:

If it's a shooting war you want, do not doubt that there are plenty of progressives who will oblige you. If this goal is so important that you're really willing to kill for it, please don't forget that you will also need to be willing to die for it. Because, like martyrs Greg McKendry and Steven Johns proved, we are willing to do whatever is necessary to stop you.

Bastard Old Holborn

This chappie is fighting the good fight in The Country Which Used To Be Great Britain. He's been on my RSS feed for a few weeks now and I've been - by turns - amused, provoked, offended and greatly inspired by his rantings and those who "love his throbbing organ" i.e his commenters (!). Go visit when you get a chance...

And so the curtain starts to fall

This blog links to other blogs that do a sterling job of documenting the relentless attacks on the right of Americans - and indeed, all liberty -loving people all over the world - to arm and defend themselves. The right to bear arms is beautifully enumerated in the Bill Of Rights, and as some have noted quite recently, the 2nd Amendment does not grant anything, but refers to the right to bear arms in such a way as to make it obvious that is something that exists - always has and always will - and that the Gubmint is not to encroach upon it. To whit,

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

This cannot be emphasized enough and it is shocking to consider how many folks get this wrong. It is not a privilege to be granted or taken away, it is a natural right. It just...IS. And you, Mr. Government Man, you are hereby explicitly forbidden to fuck with it.

While we must all stay on top of developments relating to infringement of our natural right to bear arms, we must also stay vigilant against any moves against our other rights and I'm afraid with respect to freedom of speech and expression, the portents are ominous.

In the past week, this UN resolution has come to the fore (and is widely expected to pass, by the way) and today by way of Cryptogon, this obscenity

THIS my friends is why they want us disarmed. Disarmed, docile and passive. From lions into lambs. Ready for pens and /or slaughter. Never forget that. The gun banners understand - and so should we - that the War On Guns is way more than about assault weapons, calibers and brass, dammit. This is nothing less than imposing serfdom on you and your children. And their children. And their children.

"As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such a twilight that we all must be aware of change in the air—however slight—lest we become unwilling victims of the darkness."

- William Douglas

With all due respect to the eloquent Justice, it seems we are past the twilight stage and darkness is descending. No matter. A fire burns within me and my brothers and sisters. We WILL win in the end. The Righteous always do.

Who wrote this?

This may prove to be a hopelessly controversial post and the subsequent smoke and noise may unfortunately serve to obscure the righteous fire that the writer stokes and wields, with words and that are as relevant today as when he penned them over 14 years ago.  Granted, this person committed quite heinous terrorist acts, but the truths evident in his writings are universal and speak directly to all liberty-loving thinkers.

Leftists tend to hate anything that has an image of being strong,   good and successful. They hate America, they hate Western  civilization, they hate white males, they hate rationality. The  reasons that leftists give for hating the West, etc. clearly do not  correspond with their real motives. They SAY they hate the West  because it is warlike, imperialistic, sexist, ethnocentric and so  forth, but where these same faults appear in socialist countries or in primitive cultures, the leftist finds excuses for them, or at best he  GRUDGINGLY admits that they exist; whereas he ENTHUSIASTICALLY points   out (and often greatly exaggerates) these faults where they appear in  Western civilization. Thus it is clear that these faults are not the  leftist's real motive for hating America and the West. He hates  America and the West because they are strong and successfulItalic

Pretty good so far? Here's some more:

Words like “self-confidence,” “self-reliance,” “initiative,” “enterprise,” “optimism,” etc., play little role in the liberal and leftist vocabulary. The leftist is anti-individualistic, pro-collectivist. He wants society to solve everyone’s problems for them, satisfy everyone’s needs for them, take care of them. He is not the sort of person who has an inner sense of confidence in his ability to solve his own problems and satisfy his own needs. The leftist is antagonistic to the concept of competition because, deep inside, he feels like a loser

And I will end with this snippet:

The more dangerous leftists, that is, those who are most power-hungry, are often characterized by arrogance or by a dogmatic approach to ideology. However, the most dangerous leftists of all may be certain oversocialized types who avoid irritating displays of aggressiveness and refrain from advertising their leftism, but work quietly and unobtrusively to promote collectivist values, “enlightened” psychological techniques for socializing children, dependence of the individual on the system, and so forth. 

UPDATE 3/2/2009: Both my readers answered correctly

Where have I been...

Thanks to a perfect storm of family and work-related demands this blog was in suspended animation for February. 
I will attempt to remedy this state of affairs and hope to post in bursts at least a couple of times a week.
For the hardy few souls who check in on this blog or follow it, I apologize for the absence and I hope to make worthy contributions in the coming weeks.

The sparks of a revolution in Orwell-land?

Meanwhile, over in Orwell-land...

If you do insist on keeping a collection of guns, in defiance of the law, make sure they're out of the reach of your very disgruntled soon-to-be ex-wife.
By the way, carrying a zip gun on the Tube? Nice touch.
