Volume Three: Number Forty-Seven



Les Portes du Cimetière
Marc Chagall
(1917)

Peter
I was driving past one of our local churches and saw this Bible quote, "Peter, “Put your sword away!"

Now, I assume, the church's congregation was asking folks to put away (maybe, even give up their rights to) their firearms to prevent events, like the recent violence in Nevada, Texas, and elsewhere.

Guess what, ... The congregation is wrong, if that's the case.

Why?

This verse, in my opinion, deals with Peter wanting to protect Jesus from government and religious persecution. 

But, ... Jesus, knowing his ultimate fate, is choosing to follow God's path for him, dying to forgive our sins, that is why Jesus commands Peter "Put your sword away!"

Lastly, this minor biblical event is a lesson for your family.

First, how many people would still be alive "If" the Branch Davidians at Waco, Texas had put away their firearms swords when they were attacked by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the State of Texas, on February 28th, 1993, at Mount Carmel Center Ranch?

Second, is this church's congregation message anti-freedom or a misguided attempt to prevent crime?

If it is an attempt to prevent crime they should be commended but educated that this verse is one of accepting God's path, not crime prevention. If it is an anti-freedom message, the congregation needs a lesson about how firearms protect their rights to practice their religion, protect their families, and protect our country.

Lastly, this is a lesson that many people (including me) will use our sacred texts to promote an agenda. An agenda that may deprive you and your family of their rights protected under the Constitution of these United States and the Bill of Rights.

Things You Might Want to Think About

$1,000 and $76,000
There are many different types of people, in this country. Three of these type, you can tell when they ask about food.

The poor will ask if you had enough to eat.

Middle class folks will ask if you liked the food.

Rich people will ask if you enjoyed the restaurant, i.e. the experience.

Boycott
For what it's worth, there is no such thing a 'reverse racism.' Telling people to give up their seat, whether at a concert or on a bus, because of their skin colour is prejudice.

And, ...

Just like the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Lido Pimienta's albums, concerts, and music need to be boycotted by all people that believe in equality, until there is equality for all.

Computers
Guess what?

You're going to have to learn how to use a computer.

Daughters
As times get tough, villains are going to increasingly prey on your family. Sometimes, these crimes are going to be property crimes. Other times, these crimes are going to be ... personal.

The Gander
There is an old folk saying, 'What's good for the goose. Is good for the gander'

I guess, it's not that old after all.

Ha, Ha, Ha
I'm offended too.

I'm offended that college students don't have a sense of humor.

Leonardo
Wow, ... $450,000,000 for a painting that might be a fake.

No!!!
For Government to work, "We the People" must give our consent. We can give it voluntarily or under duress.

Either way, if you, your family, and enough people say "No," there is no law.

But, ... You knew that was coming ; - )

For that 'No' to work, we must continue to have an effective means to resist, like firearms.

Ownership
Buying a piece of property or a home isn't about building wealth. It's about having a secure place to live during tough times.

Role Model
Something for you and your clan to take to heart.

Warning
Remember, 'Mother Nature is a Serial Killer.' She doesn't care about you and your family.

So, ... If Human make the plant uninhabitable, she'll kill us all.

Oooh, ... What a bunch of dumb f*cks.

The scientists wanted everyone to "save the Earth from extreme climate change by burning fewer fossil fuels, preserving forests, limiting population growth, and ..." improving food production.

Won't that increase population?


Overheard

"Those messages, instead of being ignored, have triggered university administrators and campus leftists into seeing the postings as outbursts of dangerous racism."

"...qualified staff are increasingly hard to find, ..."

"They did it out of political self-interest then. And they’re doing it out of political self-interest now. There’s nothing clean or honest about what they’re doing. There’s no moral reckoning here. Only a political reckoning. It’s not about the women Bill abused. It’s about DNC cash and the 2020 election."

"Complaining that we shouldn’t be blamed and punished for the actions of mad men is all well and good, but one has to understand a few realities: ..."

Wednesday: 15 November 2017, Part Three


Welcome Preppers and Survivalists,

Tools
Firearms are tools, just like any other tools.

Well, ...

For most preppers, a .357 magnum revolver is going to be 'good enough.' They are inexpensive, don't require expensive magazines, take commonly available ammunition, and are rugged, kinda.

More Tools
Needless to say, ...

Some tools aren't appropriate for all situations, so you might need a different tool.
