Congratulations : Chicago reaches 500 homicides with fatal shooting – The City of Chicago has some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the nation.  Up until a few months ago, it was illegal for a private citizen to own or possess a handgun anywhere within the city, including in one’s own home.  For 2010, Chicago also holds another distinction.  More Chicago Police Officers were killed by gunfire this year than any other police agency in the nation.  The city also boasts one of the highest violent crime rates in the country, with 1 in 89 residents being victims of violent crime last year. City with strictest gun control laws has most officers killed by gunfire. How’s that gun ban thingy working out for ya? And this is their plan for the rest of the country…

Pentagon Gassed US Soldiers, Civilians In 1960s Tests : the Pentagon itself used chemical and biological weapons against American soldiers, sailors and civilians, as part of military weapons testing in the 1960s and 1970s. Always with your health and best interest at heart of course.

Feinstein’s Gun Control Bill Will Trigger The Next American Revolution : “All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party – Mao Tse Tung

Petition : Try Senator Dianne Feinstein in a Federal Court For Treason To The Constitution… this woman has been after your guns and has been an enemy of the U.S. Constitution for 20+ years. She is like a bad case of herpes she just keeps coming back… :evilgrin:

Fearful of ban, frenzied buyers swarm gun stores : “The phones at gun shops across the country are ringing off the hook. Demand for firearms, ammunition and bulletproof gear has surged.”

The 10th Amendment Nullification Movement : “The 10th Amendment Movement is an effort to push back against unconstitutional federal laws and regulations on a state level. The principle is known as “nullification,” and was advised by many prominent founders.” see also Firearms Freedom Act a State by State Overview. The only hope that we have in saving our freedom is at the state level.

British Medical Journal: Ban Long Knives! You see these antigund / anti self-defense people never stop they would ban pointy sticks if they could. One step at a time.

Sen. Feinstein’s ‘Assault Weapon’ Ban Really Handgun Ban : “After all the Democrats’ emphasis the dangers of so-called “assault weapons,” the details of Senator Dianne Feinstein’s pending assault weapons ban show that her real goal is to ban handguns.”

What Does the Fiscal Cliff Mean for You? : “Unless you’re retired and poor, something bad.” Is it just me does it seem like a great idea to just stop working or trying to earn over let’s say $12,000 per year? The more you make the more they take so why even bother – go fishing instead – or you can until they ban fishhooks, those thing are sharp and you could prick yourslf… sarcaum off :sarcasm:

  1. Hurrah for Chicago! Another fine example of mandated “safety” issues that fails in a glaring way. It should be gun controls “poster child”.

  2. Dean in Michigan says:

    The fiscal cliff is gonna hurt me for sure, as I will lose my unemployment. But before you label me a free s$@t line person, let me explain.

    Long story short, I hurt my knee at work, which automatically started a workmans comp claim. Four months later, I got my back pay. As soon as I cashed that check, I was laid off. 5 years of ass busting and….whoop, sorry about your knee…….guess we can’t use you anymore.

    I have since been feverously looking for work to no avail. I’m 42, in good shape, ex-military, and have a bachelors degree. Not good enough apparently.

    This gov’t makes me sick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. The gunshop in my town closes early on friday. Well lately it has been open til 6 pm,3 hours later then usual.

    • mountain lady says:

      Talked to my sister a few days ago. She is out of everything and is not able to restock right now. Maybe she will get a much needed vacation. She is keeping the store open on regular hours, though.

  4. Just more proof you don’t need to trust the powers that be.

    http://www.ksdk.com/news/article/339573/3/I-Team-The-Armys-secret-Cold-War-experiments-on-St-Louisans-

    Lisa Martino-Taylor is a sociologist whose life’s work has been to uncover details of the Army’s ultra-secret military experiments carried out in St. Louis and other cities during the 1950s and 60s.

    The I-Team independently verified that the spraying of zinc cadmium sulfide did take place in St. Louis on thousands of unsuspecting citizens. What is unclear is whether the Army added a radioactive material to the compound as Martino-Taylor’s research implies.

    “The study was secretive for reason. They didn’t have volunteers stepping up and saying yeah, I’ll breathe zinc cadmium sulfide with radioactive particles,” said Martino-Taylor.

    Documents confirmed that city officials were kept in the dark about the tests. The Cold War cover story was that the Army was testing smoke screens to protect cities from a Russian attack. The truth, according to Martino-Taylor was much more sinister.

    “It was pretty shocking. The level of duplicity and secrecy. Clearly they went to great lengths to deceive people,” she said.

    1. Diane Feinstein can KMA, KMA, and KMA.

    2. In defense of experimentation on people. Our world had been at war and countries still threatened our safety. Science had no idea of the effects of radiation, germs, chemicals, etc. You used to get your foot xrayed just to buy a pair of shoes. The methods to even test for some of this stuff was brand new. We knew that the USSR was going to nuke us or China was going to invade us and even had drills at school hiding under our desks. Like that would help. Our government was seeking ways to protect our nation and destroy others. People died from polio, smallpox, and syphillis. Yeah, all these experiments were horrendous but at the time, they seemed like the best way to learn how to improve our methods. Many past scientific and medical practices and testings seem inhuman today but because of having the past to build on, we do know a lot better ways of preparing and treating.

    3. Did I say Diane Feinstein can KMA?

    • I agree on 1 & 3 but I cant believe you actually condone what our own govt has done to us. With a govt like that (who btw is supposed to protect us)… who needs enemies.

      • Tactical G-Ma says:

        SW,
        I don’t condone what the govt has done anymore than I condone electric shock therapy. I’m just saying that there was intent to make Americans better, safer. The needs of many outweigh the needs of a few. Or so was rationalized. Prisoners and college students were used as guinea pigs too.
        Hindsight is always 20/20. 100 years from now we will probably be considered barbarians too.

  6. Hunker-Down says:

    The “Pentagon Gassed U.S. Soldiers” article should be combined with all the conspiracy posting comments from yesterday and filtered through the lens of reason.
    If anyone still has faith that our leaders and the MSM have any concern for their butts, well, as the Cable Guy says, “you cant cure stupid”.

    • I love that the “Gassed” story came from wsws.org – The World Socialist Web Site.
      Don’t forget to pick up your copy of the new book “In Defense of Leon Trotsky” while you’re over there…

    • It wasn’t until just a couple of years ago that the guberment admitted that US troops were attacked with nerve gas in Iraq during Gulf 1. It is also well documented that children of Gulf 1 soldiers have a much higher rate of birth defects and neurological disorders. Now you tell me that there is no experiments done on troops. I have no doubt that we were unwittingly given all kind of experimental drugs while in the service. The cool side was that it was harder for us to get hurt and when we did our rate of healing compared to others was much more advanced. The downside is that the drugs eat us from the inside out and have residual affect on our children.

  7. In addition to the tests mentioned in the article, at Fort Detrick we have a big steel sphere that was used to expose humans to chemical & biological substances. The subjects were conscientious objectors who were given this as a way to serve their country. In this case, the subjects knew what they were getting into upfront (but not if they were in control or use group). It was offered as an option to consequences for refusing to serve. Many Quakers & other people with strong religious beliefs about killing were the majority of the test subjects.

  8. This will be us in a few years. Especially if the powers that be have their way.

    Desperate for weapons, Syrian rebels make their own. “We have no tanks, no planes, no artillery. All we have is what we get in spoils and we go to war against him (Assad) with what we get. That’s the reality. We’re forced to do this,” he told Reuters.

  9. And if you just need to laugh and shake your head… look at the laws coming down the pike in 2013

  10. I am going to copy bits and pieces from this piece… but you’ll get enough of an idea that it will make you sick. I know it does me.
    ———–

    While New Year’s day isn’t until next week, those that invest in the G fund for their current or future retirement always find it
    of interest when there is a debate about raising the debt ceiling. The reason: The federal government has to come up with
    money until the debt ceiling is approved. Your G fund investments will help fund the government while our elected
    representatives haggle and debate over what to do about the ever increasing debt and the need to, yet again, increase the
    amount of debt that can legally be incurred by the government.

    The Treasury recently announced a series of measures that will delay the day the government will exceed its legal borrowing
    authority as imposed by Congress. These steps could delay the inevitable for up to two months depending on how much the
    government spends each day beyond what it takes in during that time.

    One of these first measures to be taken by the Treasury Department is to suspend investment in the G fund and, presumably,
    the Civil Service Retirement and Disability Fund. According to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, these steps, including
    suspending investments in the G fund, “can create approximately $200 billion in headroom under the debt limit.”

    We know from past experience that the Treasury Department can use some retirement funds of federal employees to avoid
    increasing the debt limit which is capped by law. That is likely to happen again if the debt limit is not raised by Congress.

    When the debt ceiling limit was last raised in 2011 the debt ceiling went from $14.29 trillion to more than $16.39 trillion. We
    don’t know what the next debt ceiling will be, perhaps as much as $20 trillion or so. Of course, the federal government pays
    interest on the money that it borrows. While interest rates are currently at historically low levels, largely as a result of the
    Federal Reserve printing money and buying much of the debt, in 2011, these interest payments claimed $230 billion, or about
    6 percent of the budget. Since the government is printing a large amount of money each month which is then used to purchase
    the government debt, there are inflationary pressures building in the economy. When or how large the ultimate inflation will
    be remains to be seen. But, when interest rates do finally go up, the amount of money spent by the government to finance the
    debt will go up rapidly.

    In short, the current debt ceiling debate is only part of the problem. And, in addition to the pay freeze that has been in effect,
    federal employees are also helping with the problem through the involuntary use of G fund as explained above.

    Once again the federal workforce is a ******* ATM to these folks. They have in the past (and possibly will agian real soon) invade our retirement acounts because they are too stupid to live within their means. God I need to quit this job. Everytime I turn around we are getting bent over with no lube.
