What are little wars made of? Not sugar and spice...

War is crime.  It is murder, kidnapping, theft, destruction of property, trespassing, and every other evil act all rolled into one neat package.  That means the solution to it- the way to prevent it from happening- is the same: a universally armed populace.

Designating one family member as being responsible for defense of all is a poor tactic.  Even if every family member is supposedly supporting the armed defender, you are weaker than if everyone is taking actual, physical responsibility.  You must make sure every family member is ready and equipped for defense.

The best way to keep from being harmed by the bad guys is to prevent them from attacking in the first place.  Don't be a sheep.

You don't prevent them from attacking by becoming the bully, or by goading them into a fight, or by becoming what you claim to be preventing.  And taunting them is just asking for trouble.

Telling your neighbor what he is allowed to own, or do on his own property, and backing up your demands with force or the threat of force, is an act of aggression.  Invading his property to make sure he is complying with your meddlesome edicts qualifies you for a bullet to the head.

Really want "national security"?  Then get rid of all anti-gun "laws" and disband the military.  Anything else is just looking for trouble.

This began with every intention of making it a CNJ column.  It quickly became obvious there could be no way to neuter it enough to get it past the gate.  So, here it is in all its glory.



  1. As many have noted, people don't really *want* to be free.
    They just want their servitude to be comfortable.

  2. I suppose that makes me not a "people". I'm accustomed to being marginalized. I have already been informed I am "No One".

  3. What a wonderful idea, Kent. Oh wait. The Founding Fathers had that idea when they started this nation, didn't they? Oh well, all republics eventually become empires and eventually fall. Only when enough people understand the message you consistently give... and are willing to act on it, will anything change. Pvt. Joker is right: most "people...want their servitude to be comfortable."

    Remember this: "[A]ll experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. (From the Unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America.)
