Hello once again from The Association Of Jingoistic Conspiratorial Angry Xenophobic Constitutional Amendment Supporting Fossil Fuel Burning Four Wheel Drive SUV Drivers Of West Texas.
Let me begin by saying that in today’s American society, Liberal/Progressive/Democrat/Socialists are completely out of touch with REALITY. The only REALITY that those idiots recognize are the so called REALITY TV programs which in fact are not REAL at all.
Earlier yesterday morning I was listening to the radio and I heard Hillary Clinton speaking authoritatively on the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution. According to this lying criminal heifer the Second Amendment was put into the Constitution for the benefit of….. now hold on……….. THE MILITARY. For someone who holds a law degree, she seems to have as little grasp of the REALITY of the Second Amendment as anyone of whom I can think…… well, perhaps other than President Barack Hussein Obama and a multitude of his political appointees…. and a bunch of Democrat Senators and Congressmen…. and unfortunately too many Republican Senators and Congressmen. As I understand it, Republican Senator Susan Collins from Maine was one of the sponsors along with a Democrat (all the Democrats are interchangeable) Senator which I believe was shot down on the Senate floor. Of course, Susan Collins has been on the VARMINT LIST for many years AND shall remain there as long as she is in office. Just look at what some of the framers of the U.S. Constitution along with some well respected Americans have said about “The Militia” and the “Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms.”
“I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the WHOLE PEOPLE. To DISARM the people is the best and most effectual way to ENSLAVE them”.. GEORGE MASON – Co-author of the Second Amendment during Virginia’s Convention to Ratify the Constitution – 1788
“A Militia, when properly formed, are in fact THE PEOPLE THEMSELVES.”.. RICHARD HENRY LEE – May 1788
“The people are not to be disarmed of their weapons. They are left in full possession of them.”… ZACHARIAH JOHNSON – Several State Convention on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution
“And that the said Constitution be NEVER CONSTRUED to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the Press; or the rights of Conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from KEEPING THEIR OWN ARMS.”…. SAMUEL ADAMS
“To preserve liberty, it is essential that the WHOLE BODY OF THE PEOPLE ALWAYS POSSESS ARMS and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.”…………….. RICHARD HENRY LEE – American Statesman 1788
Now these are just a few of many quotes from the founders of our nation and our Constitution. How is it that some 228 years later, we have a President and members of Both Houses of Congress along with at least 4 members of the Supreme Court and various State Governors have come to the conclusion, like Hillary Clinton, that the Second Amendment was made to protect the government.
When the REALITY of the matter is really obvious that the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights (for those of you living in the People’s Republic of San Francisco, that would be the First Ten Amendments to The U.S. Constitution) were adopted TO PROTECT THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES FROM AN INTRUSIVE AND POWER HUNGRY FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
I have listened to various politicians and clergy and members of the media all tell us that there is absolutely no need for any American to own a semi-automatic “Assault Weapon”. Of course they are so out of touch that many of them call a semi-automatic weapon a MACHINE GUN. I just read an article written by a member of the clergy where he states that he owns a semi-automatic Colt .380 pistol which he keeps in his home. He also stated that he had no problems with people who are hunters. But he does not understand why ANYONE would need a semi-automatic “Assault Rifle.”
Let me share a thought with you about some information I received from my first partner on the Houston Police Department. It had to do with self defense and protecting yourself and citizens. He told me that if someone attacked you and they were using only their fists and feet ….. then I should use my Nightstick or my Slapper. If someone attacked me and they were using a knife or a gun….. then I should use my pistol. He also had a view that I later adopted as my own. And here it is:
1) A handgun is something you use in an emergency when you cannot get to your shotgun.
2) A shotgun should be used when you can get to it and are at close range.
3) A rifle should be used if you had some distance which was too great for your shotgun.
4) All shot should be multiple shots to the largest part of the bad guy’s body.
I have never seen a situation with which I could argue with those rules given to me on December 7, 1958 which was my first day on the street.
The greatest number of people who tell you that you do not have any need for a high capacity magazine or a semi-automatic pistol or rifle have never been in a life or death situation and more than likely have never had their hands on a firearm of any kind.
Please take time to read about some of the battles in the War for American Independence. You might learn that there were any number of MILITIAS. Most of them were used to supplement the regular U.S. Army troops. Many of the Militias were not all that dependable in battle. BUT while you are at it, please take time to read about The Battle of Cowpens. I think you will find that George Mason and Richard Henry Lee knew exactly what the Constitution meant when it spoke of A MILITIA.
It should be readily apparent to every American with just average intelligence that someone who is intent on committing a terrorist act of killing multiple people ARE NOT CONCERNED with the current firearms laws ….. NOR would they be concerned with more strict firearms laws. THEY ARE TERRORISTS COMMITTING MASS MURDER and believing that more strict firearms laws will prohibit this in the future is way beyond stupid.
Here is a dose of REALITY…. EVIL PEOPLE CANNOT BE CONTROLLED BY LEGISLATION. ANYONE WHO BELIEVES THAT THEY CAN IS OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY!

“Think about it. We have 50 states; each with its own gun control laws, and many of those laws have gotten either tighter or looser over the years. There must be tons of data that could indicate whether murder rates went up or down when either of these things happened…. But have you ever heard any gun control advocate cite any such data? Tragically, gun control has become one of those fact-free issues that spawn outbursts of emotional rhetoric and mutual recriminations about the National Rifle Association or the Second Amendment.”… THOMAS SOWELL
“Virtually all empirical studies in the United States show that tightening gun control laws has not reduced crime rates in general or murder rates in particular. Is this because only people opposed to gun control do empirical studies? Or is it because the facts uncovered in empirical studies make the arguments of gun control zealots untenable.”….THOMAS SOWELL
“The best we can help for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”………. ALEXANDER HAMILTON
“Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence…from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurrences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable…the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference —- they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.”… GEORGE WASHINGTON – First President of the United States
“There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.”… NOAH WEBSTER ****
“An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!…. Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power…. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us…. Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of the chains of slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.”… PATRICK HENRY

Yesterday I heard several reports that a University in Michigan has decided to drop ALL COLLEGE MATHEMATIC REQUIREMENTS. What will replace the Mathematic Requirements, you ask? This is almost too easy. Why, DIVERSITY CLASSES.
OK. Just for a moment, please stop and think of just about any type of job that you may pursue. I can almost guarantee that math skills are very important. I have a hard time thinking just in the Law Enforcement field how mathematics enters into almost every phase of every investigation. The more complex the investigation, the more math skills are put into use. I actually cannot think of a single crime investigated where some type of math skill is no put into play. Accident scene and homicide scene diagrams. Figuring out the speed of vehicles by the amount of skid marks left at the scene. The value of property and the collective values of property stolen or damaged. And these are just a few.
But this Michigan college has decided the DIVERSITY is more important in our future society than MATHEMATICS.
Keep in mind though that the State of Michigan is where the City of Detroit is located………. THE PROSECUTION RESTS.
This past week end, I lost another really good friend. Mr. Roger Lamar Goertz, who has been on our prayer list for quite a long time. He was 78 years old. Within the past couple of years I had written a short piece about Roger. He was born with both feet deformed and at a very young age, his mother and he would get on a bus and ride to Dallas where he had multiple surgeries as a young boy. Of course I did not know him back then but I do know some people who played football against him in high school. Even with severely deformed feet, Roger played football AND was his team’s place kicker…. only he did not use a holder… he drop kicked the extra points. One of the guys who played against Roger in high school said that he was also a pretty tough middle guard on defense and was damn hard to move.
I first met Roger about 8 years ago. He had lost his wife and was living at a senior high rise living facility. He was one of our regulars at morning coffee and I don’t know that I have ever known anyone with a better attitude. He was quite interested in the history of West Texas and gave me several books on some of the historical happenings around our area. He was an interesting man to talk with. He was a counselor at Big Spring High School when he retired. I also believe he did coach at a smaller school at one time.
All I know is that I will miss him a bunch. He appreciated a good joke and always had a nice smile.
When I think of tough guys I have known down through the years I have to think of my former neighbor in Hobbs, New Mexico…. Bob McKelvey… who spent the entire Second World War in a Japanese Prison Camp; I also think of my neighbor down the street Billy Williams who died earlier this year and worked hard at ranching; farming; and in the oilfield his entire life. He had to raise his younger siblings when he was still in high school; And of course Roger Goertz who endured unbelievable pain his entire life but I never heard him complain. The thing these three men had in common was not only were they three of the toughest people I have ever known, but they were also three of the nicest friends I have ever had. My life is better for having known them all.
Can someone explain to me how Switzerland, where almost every family owns firearms has the LOWEST HOMICIDE RATE IN THE WORLD and Honduras, a country in which private ownership of firearms is prohibited has the HIGHEST HOMICIDE RATE IN THE WORLD? The population of both countries is approximately 8.2 million inhabitants.
OK. It is time for me to dine on a dish that I hate worse than anything on earth. AND that is it is time for me to EAT CROW!
Regardless of what I have said or written in the past. Regardless of the fact that early in the game I made the prediction that “Donald Trump will NEVER get the Republican Nomination.” Regardless of the fact that I made earlier statements that “I will NEVER VOTE FOR DONALD TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT.”
Well let me now admit that I was wr—, uh made a mis —-, uh was in er—, perhaps a bit confused on the issues for a short period of time.
I have heard all the “NEVER TRUMP” people and read of all the statements from some so called “Conservative Republicans” saying that they also would NEVER vote for Donald Trump. Well let me tell you now that it has come time to show your true colors.
If you do not mind your Second Amendment Rights being thrown out and destroyed; If you do not mind risking that your First Amendment and Fourth Amendment Rights being overturned; If you can live with your Fifth Amendment Right to DUE PROCESS being destroyed; If you have no problems with the federal government being able to seize private property at will; If you are satisfied with the Executive Branch and the Judicial Branch of our federal government being able to bypass the Legislative Branches unchecked; THEN, by all means, either stay at home and do not vote OR do some idiotic write in which will go nowhere OR vote third party which is voting for someone only marginally better than Hillary Clinton. ANYTHING THAT WE DO OTHER THAN VOTING FOR “THE DONALD” WILL GIVE THE PRESIDENCY TO SOMEONE WHO, IN MY OPINION, IS AT LEAST AS…. IF NOT MORE.. DANGEROUS THAN BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA.
OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS ARE AT STAKE. WE CANNOT AFFORD TO HAVE A CLINTON APPOINTEE SWING THE SUPREME COURT TO A FAR LEFT, SOCIALIST GROUP. WE ARE ONE APPOINTEE AWAY FROM THIS BEING THE CASE.
AND THAT, MY FRIENDS IS…..REALITY! Remember, Gun Control IS NOT ABOUT GUNS….. IT IS ABOUT CONTROL. ** Please re-read the quote by NOAH WEBSTER.
