Girl kills attackers, but statists miss the point

I got an email that I would like to share. Along with my commentary. First, the email:


Shotgun preteen vs. Home Invaders : Illegal alien Butte,
Montana, November 5 , 2009

Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resindez, 23, and Enrico Garza, 26,
probably believed they would easily overpower home-alone 11 year old
Patricia Harrington after her father had left their two-story home.

It seems the two crooks never learned two things:
they were in Montana and Patricia had been a clay shooting champion since
she was nine. Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men
broke through the front door of the house. She quickly ran to her father's
room and grabbed his 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun.

Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor
only to be the first to catch a near point blank blast of buckshot from
the 11-year-old's knee crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds to his
abdomen and genitals. When Garza ran to the foot of the
stairs, he took a blast to the left shoulder and staggered out into the
street where he bled to death before medical help could arrive. It
was found out later that Resindez was armed with a stolen 45 caliber
handgun he took from another home invasion robbery. That
victim, 50-year-old David O'Burien, was not so lucky. He died from
stab wounds to the chest.

Ever wonder why good stuff never makes NBC ,
CBS , PBS , MSNBC , CNN, or ABC 11 year old girl, properly trained, defended her home, and
herself......against two murderous, illegal immigrants......and she
wins, She is still alive.

Now that is Gun Control !

Thought for the day: Calling an illegal alien an
'undocumented immigrant' is like calling a drug dealer an
'unlicensed pharmacist'
This is a good e-mail message.
American citizens defending themselves and their homes.


Now the commentary.

Good for her! I love it when the good guys win by killing the bad guys. I wish all such attacks ended so nicely. But... How in the bloody blazes could it possibly matter in the slightest where the attackers came from?

Would it be better to be murdered or raped by a person from your home town or your own "state"? It is ignorant and stupid to pretend that the origins of a bad guy are even part of the equation. This is just an attempt to distract people from the real issue: aggression. It is a lie. It is evil.

A cop killed during a drug raid is just as much a parasitical vermin as an "illegal immigrant" killed during an attempted rape/murder is. His death is just as much a cause for celebration. The actions and the intentions make the only difference that exists.

An "illegal immigrant" IS an independent migrant, and a "drug dealer" IS an unlicensed pharmacist. Only statists, who falsely believe "The State" is more important than the individual, would see it any other way. Disgusting!

Substitutes for substance

Substitutes for substance

"Patriotism" and "citizenship" are often used as substitutes for principles, like religion and "morality" are used as substitutes for living an ethical life. In either case, ritual is relied upon rather than doing what is right.

Waving a flag or worshiping the Constitution is no substitute for standing up for the principle of respecting the rights of all people in all situations. The Constitution is OK in some ways, but it still authorizes evil in others. The US flag (notice that it is most assuredly NOT "the American flag") has been co-opted by the federal government, and flying it is normally seen as an endorsement of that government. This "federal flag" stands against everything America should be, and has done so since before the "Civil War". Let the statists have their symbol.

Most advocates of "good citizenship" are advocating that you and I obey the Constitution and support the "Constitutional actions" of the US government- at least as long as it does what they think it should be doing- whether those actions are right or wrong. A "good citizen" is expected to waste effort by working "within the system" when bad things are done by those in that "system". It doesn't work, and if it did it would be made "illegal".

Giving up your own conscience and letting the State dictate your principles may be easy, but it will not lead you where you need to be. The destination will shift with each new crisis the State invents. That crisis may be "illegal immigrants" or "drugs" or "crime". It may be your religion or your guns. It will always be about someone's liberty. As long as you stand up for liberty for all in every situation, you will never be led astray.

I always try to put thought into where I place my support. I don't do what I am told, unless what I am told is in line with my principles. It means I may have to think more, and consider things more deeply. That's OK. Thinking is good exercise. Accepting as truth what you are told, by those who are holding you at gunpoint and have a vested interest in deceiving you, is not smart. But, as in all things, don't take my word for it. Think for yourself.

The bad "immigration law" from Arizona is already causing an influx of immigrants into the Albuquerque area. I'd be willing to bet it is not only "illegal immigrants"- or even necessarily immigrants at all. If I were Hispanic-appearing, and I lived in Arizona, I'd probably want out before the "law" went into effect, too. Let Arizona's loss be Albuquerque's gain. And, as always, if aggressive individuals follow the crowd to New Mexico, as the fear-mongers claim is happening, let people use justified self-defense and eliminate them from the population. It's the civilized thing to do. Remember, New Mexico is a "Gold Star" open-carry state. So do it.
