Who is crazy now?

Forbes story

Alex Jones is talking about DHS buying up 1.6 billion bullets, many of which are hollow point, which are outlawed for military use by international treaty.

So you might be saying “Alex Jones? Pffft… Rachel Maddow told me he is a paranoid right wing racist nut job – that’s all I need to know”

So how about Forbes?

Are the 1% starting to fear the government too?

      The show COPS on Fox started out interesting, but then I realized it was conditioning people more and more that it was acceptable for Police to yell “police!” at 4 AM wait 1/2 a second for someone to answer the door and then bust down the door. They’re criminals after all or the police wouldn’t be doing that (unless they’re at the wrong house by accident).

      One positive thing was they frequently showed females who were the aggressor in domestic violence disputes, slugging the man right in front of the police while the man is handcuffed, and the woman gets hauled off to jail

        • Art Stone says:

          A question pondered here before is – “when the SHTF, what will the police do?”. I think we got a preview of coming attractions.

          When you buy the military weapons, they are much more inclined to use them without thinking rather than considering using your brain first is a better idea that doesn’t involve the use of force. Police are trained to defuse and deescalate problems. The military less so – put a policeman in a Kevlar vest, riot gear and armored personnel carriers and you have a military operation with civilians being the enemy.. Add in testosterone and adrenaline and rational thought goes out the window. We got a taste of this with Katrina.

          In the big scheme of things, this was a penny ante terrorist attack. Yes, 3 people died, some people lost legs, 100 people probably have disfigurement, but that pales against what a highly sophisticated terrorist might cause to happen. [don’t take that as a cue to reply with “for example…”]. Loose lips sink ships.

    Yeah Art: I always wondered about the yell and then busting of the door. Is that legal? I have my doubts. The family dog would be shot probably at first.
    A normal person would be shot next, because he wouldn’t have kevlar on and picked up his .45 from the night stand, and headed off down the hall to investigate the chaos.
    Alex says they drag your wife out of bed humiliate and violate her in front of you, if you’re not already dead yet. Then they terrorize your kids.
    If they used flash-bangs, everyone would be disoriented. Not a good situation at all. You have to worry about that.
    Crazy. I don’t like it one bit. Close down the TSA and Mr. Janet Nepolitano!

      It’s all legal according the the politically appointed Supremes.

      It is to protect you so you don’t hurt yourself.

      Otherwise you could drowned trying to flush the toilet before you answer the door.

        Remember, you don’t own yourself. You are part of the crop of humans the government is raising. From time to time, the farmer has to destroy the human weeds

    The 1% fear the gun-toting, backcountry folk who are hip to their plans.

  5. Art Stone says:

    Another recurring “crime” was “man with a gun”, especially if the man was black. The untold truth is that most of the original reason for gun control laws was to keep guns out of the hands of black people. A black man carrying a gun is by itself worthy of calling 911

    If Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson were to say the above and make 2nd amendment rights for all people one of their key political goals, I would start to respect them. It would also surface this racism in the gun control issue. It is not a coincidence that the cities with the tightest gun control laws have large black populations. Why do civil rights leaders think their people cannot be trusted to own guns?

    • CC1s121LrBGT says:

      You are correct… and what you describe is one of the reasons that I respect Chris Hayes and used to watch his weekend show “Up” on MSLSD.

      After the Newtown shooting, he had the obligatory show on gun control with his normal format of 4 relatively unknown guests sitting around his table. The first he introduced was a black man (I forgot his name), a writer with a major newspaper. Chris said that that man’s father had been a leader in the Black Panthers in the 1960s, a group that tried to arm black people and mobilize them.

      Chris then pointed out that one of their first moves to was surround the California assembly and demand changes, and that as an response to that, Republican governor Ronald Reagan passed some of the countries’ toughest gun control laws at the time.

      I had said before that I don’t agree with much that Mr Hayes believes in, but I do respect his intellect, fairness, and interesting way of approaching topics – I am a fan.

      • Art Stone says:

        For reasons that are a mystery to me, suburban white kids (at least a decade ago) seemed to like to go online and pretend they were blacks. One thing I would ask them was what they thought of Fred Hampton… If that generates no response… You know, the black man in Chicago that the Chicago Police murdered in his sleep at the direction of Mayor Daley because he wanted black men to carry guns as a defense against an out of control police department.

        I would guess few Republican leaders know the story of Fred Hampton (no relation), and fewer yet would see the opportunity that event creates that could start to break black people away from the death grip the Democratic Party has on them.

          Who dat? 😉

          It has been interesting to see sudden shifts of large groups of voters. When Republican President Lincoln was president, he had a lot of black support, and the southern whites were Democrats for a century.

          Democrats up north started giving away tax money to new residents from the south and caused a massive migration of poor blacks to northern cities as Democrats.

          President Johnson (1960s) caused a lot of southern white Democrats to switch to Republican.

          Nixon moving the country to a pure fiat currency caused many Republicans to split off and form the Libertarian Party and for the Republican party to redouble its hostility toward homosexuals and non-Christians while pretending to be against big government.

          The country had abandoned the Republican ideal that sodomy (both oral and anal sex) should be punished with prison terms, as should the viewing of pictures of the same. While the pornography laws are still on the books, they result in very few prosecutions because it is hard to find 9 people that want to spend tax money to put someone away in prison for years for simply viewing dirty pictures.

          I see three possible paths forward, 1.) The Republican party will change and become more like Rand Paul and remain a viable party. 2) The Republican party will redouble its efforts against homosexuality, pornography, marijuana, and non-Christians and become smaller and smaller over time, resulting in 2a) either a single party country, or 2b) the Libertarian or another new party will replace the Republican Party and the USA will remain a two party system. 3.) A multi party system like other western democracies.

          • Art Stone says:

            I bet on 2a)

            Martin Luther King Jr was a Republican. The people blocking the schoolhouse doors and people stopping blacks from voting were Democrats. Al Gore Sr opposed the Civil Rights Act.

            For reasons I don’t understand, Barry Goldwater started the exodus and Richard Nixon’s Southern Strategy, co opting people like Strom Thurmond sealed the deal to chase blacks into the waiting arms of George McGovern. The Soviet Union also spent a lot of money and resources sending future leaders to Cuba to plant future seeds of discontent. The Vietnam war draft falling largely on blacks just increased the alienation in the black community

          • CC1s121LrBGT says:

            A single party is not a good thing. Parties are private organizations with lots of dirty backroom tricks. Some of those tricks are why many lifelong Republicans refused to vote for Mitt Romney last year.

            Countries run by a single party don’t prosper. China in recent decades is an exception, but they are making up for bad decisions in previous decades, and don’t have what most Americans would expect in the way of human rights.

      Don’t know if you saw this news story, but I thought some of the PC thoughts expressed by those interviewed for the article reflect the type of thinking you refer to above:

    I think you have it wrong Parrott: This trash treatment of tax paying citizenry will only happen to minorities, white trash in ‘manufactured homes’ and assorted druggies and alkis….. It will never happen to me, I will keep my head down, I will always be on time, I will accept the State as my guide…. this will never happen to me. I have, I have a deal with everybody – I won’t engage in risky behavior – I will prop up the people’s wishes at my own risk and loss. I will be a good citizen. This will never happen to me.

    On the Side: I don’t think they fear the 10 – 14% that might be read to saddle-up and ride out right now – but the lunatics in power should begin to become uncomfortable with the 45 – 55% of the general population who will support them. If I stated this before, I’m sorry to repeat myself.

  7. Parrott says:

    Here is something that I saw:
    “Ted Cruz challenges Joe Biden to debate about gun control. Senator Cruz (TX.) indicated that he doesn’t regard Biden as a formidable opponent, noting that Biden’s home defense advice — firing a shot gun twice into the air — “is very useful, if it so happens that you’re being attacked by a flock of geese.” ”
    http://washingtonexaminer.com/ted-cr…rticle/2528799
    Do you think ‘Uncle Joe’ will show? Or will he just avoid the senator and continue to run across the country spewing lies and half truths like Obo ? Senator Cruz would destroy Biden. He would make Michael Bloomburg cry, LOL !
    To bad we have two gutless senators from VA that vote the way Obo tells them too.
    I am ashamed of them.

    In 1976, my college had a show in the auditorium put on about the assassination and all the dead witnesses and inconsistencies. The two things I found most troubling were the “pristine bullet” that just happened to be found on Connelly’s stretcher in the hospital – and that we almost never got to see the Zapruder film as Time wanted to lock it away forever. One of the points of Lane’s presentation was that there was clearly a jump caused because several frames were missing – and since the frame rate of the camera establishes a very precise time line, someone deliberately removing frames and switching two frames was highly suspect. The original film did not have those artifacts.

    I’m thinking the presentation I saw was presented by Mark Lane, who continued to have an interesting life.

      The three tramps did it, at the behest of the Federal Reserve: E. Howard Hunt, Frank Sturgis and I suspect their accomplice in the JFK assassination was John Titor.

      • Art Stone says:

        I realized my error – Connelly was in the seat in front of Kennedy, not behind him. So the second bullet went through Kennedy, came out his throat, went through the back of the seat, ripped through Connelly and took out 4 inches of rib, yet had no deformation on the front of the bullet. Sounds plausible to me
