Jim Carrey: ‘Assault Rifle’ Owners Have ‘Very Little in Their Body or Soul Worth Protecting’ – folks, Jim Carrey is just another elitist a-hole like Charlie Sheen calling for more “gun control”, just before bragging about his “heavily armed security force” on Piers Morgan tonight.

This is starting to get ridiculous – Colorado boy, 7, reportedly faces suspension for tossing imaginary grenade ” “A Colorado second-grader may be suspended from his elementary school after he disobeyed a key rule of no weapons, real or imaginary, when he tossed an imaginary grenade Friday during recess and went, ‘pshhh,’ to indicate that the imaginary device detonated, reported.”

Cops bust 10-year-old for bringing toy gun to school : “The boy, a fifth-grader at Douglas MacArthur Elementary School whose name is not being released, was charged as a juvenile with brandishing a weapon, police said.”

8,830,026: Americans on Disability Hits New Record for 192nd Straight Month : “The number of American workers collecting federal disability payments climbed to yet another record high of 8,830,026 in January, up from 8,827,795 in December, according to newly released data from the Social Security Administration.”

Beware: A President who justifies secret drone killings of Americans can justify anything : The U.S. Justice Department has just released a 16-page memo outlining its justification for why President Obama can order drone killings of American citizens. Folks what happened to the Sixth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution?

Obama drone strike killed 16-year-old born in Denver : “Of the scores of people dubbed terrorists and taken out by American military drone strikes, three men — all killed in the fall of 2011 — were U.S. citizens.”

North Korea releases video of missile attack on America : “NORTH Korea has poached Michael Jackson’s peace anthem We Are the World to soundtrack a chilling video showing a US city under missile attack.”

Washington Post: Critics of Michelle’s Weight are Racist : “The Washington Post today published an article by a reporter who is not a member of the editorial staff suggesting in no uncertain terms that those who criticize First Lady Michelle Obama for holding too much weight in her derriere are racist.” :yawn:

Government Loves You So Much It Wants To Help Manage Your Retirement Account : “The obvious concept is that when the government runs out of money, or they face a drying up in interest for its debt, they will come for the $19.4 trillion in American’s retirement accounts. It seems that day may be finally drawing near.”

The Chinese wheelbarrow : “For being such a seemingly ordinary vehicle, the wheelbarrow has a surprisingly exciting history. This is especially true in the East, where it became a universal means of transportation for both passengers and goods, even over long distances.”

  1. Schatzie Ohio says:

    As to the 2nd and 3rd post by M.D., I heard on the TV a week or so ago that a child was suspended from school for using his hand in a gun like position. The husband said that that was ridiculous and the school board is just control and power happy.

  2. re. post #3, Douglas MacArthur is likely turning in his grave!
    If I had an elementary school I would issue squirt guns at recess for fun!

  3. It is sad , how far this country has sunk over the last 20 + years. It’s not the country I grew up in. God bless Cowboy : {[

    • Buuurr in Ohio says:

      Twenty years? Try four! I have only been here for four years and have already noticed such a drastic change that it is scary to me and my family.

  4. The Newtown Father tape…………that is a brave man! Anyone of those “leaders” in the room could find an “excuse” to make his life miserable. IRS, and any other alphabet agency they have a “friend” in. He said it right and he said it true. Wish I knew he was, I would send him a Thank You note!

  5. Tactical G-Ma says:

    1. Actors and politicians always will say just about anything to get in the news and LOOK angelic.
    2. and 3. Rules and laws should be age appropriate. The 7yo should miss a recess and the 10yo should be suspended and the parents should be fined $1000.
    4. In order to draw disability one must see Drs. selected by the gov. Are people being checked and rechecked? Who has those resources?
    5. and 6. Those drones are a slippery slope kinda thing. One problem is that before long even the drug cartels will have the technology. What then?
    7. North Korea scares the hell out of everyone. These are desperate people.
    8. Nobody but MO and the POTUS should be looking or remarking on her butt.
    9. What retirement account? There is nothing left to take.
    10. Many creds to the Chinese. The Chinese have made great contributions to mankind for thousands of years. One of my favorite is gunpowder.
    11. Ya’ll already know where I stand on guncontrol.

    • Tactical G-Ma,

      I like your numbered list – I think I will start adding numbers to each miscellany item to make it easier for the pack to follow and comment on the items…

    • riverrider says:

      um t-gma? the cartel already has drones. they are using them to drop drugs across the border and smaller ones to spy on the bp. they built a submarine too. they used punkin chunkers to lob coke across the border too:) gotta give em credit for creativity and persistence, lol!

    • I disagree with the kid missing anything. Gun safety and marksmanship should be taught in school.

      • Encourager says:

        My son took marksmanship classes in college as an elective. He also was able to bring his own guns to college with him. They had to be housed in the Safety Building, but he had access to them 24/7. He was allowed to have them on him/with him when he was going to/from his marksmanship class or off campus to shoot or in his room to clean them.

        • Hunker-Down says:


          WHAT?? No one got shot? 🙂 Sounds like responsibility run amok.
          It also sounds like a very good program.

          • Encourager says:

            His college was up in the U.P., eh, where all ‘dem wolves n bears live. And moose. It is a good school.

        • Encourager,
          One of the best kept secrets is that some colleges (like The Ohio State Unuversity) have marksmenship scholarships equivalent to the other sports, and that many times these scholarships go wanting for applicants.

      • Tactical G-Ma says:

        I stand corrected. Is there a way to bring them down short of a stinger?

        Ah Crap
        I have two daughters who are school teachers so it kills me to say this but our kids are graduating not being able to read, write, or do math. Are these the people you want to teach your children about guns and gun safety? I think parents should be responsible for things like teaching them to tie their shoes, chew with their mouths closed, the 10 commandments, and self preservation. You know parent stuff.

        • I wouldn’t let those whining libturds within a mile of a gun. You would need to bring in a firearms instructor.

        • +1

        • I thought those drones were informal skeet practice.

        • riverrider says:

          g-ma, well for now the ones they are using are small, loud and low flying, so small arms could do it with practice. i worry about the big boy toy, the predator. too high, too quiet, too fast. but i did see a report that the afghans could tell they were overhead. i’m working on countermeasures. any hackers out there?

        • HomeINsteader says:

          I am wondering, myself, TGMa. I mean, they’re high tech, right? What “low tech” methods would bring them down, I wonder?…not that I would want to do that, of course…just wonderin’…hey, science is science, right?!!!

          • Tactical G-Ma says:

            DH says if they are bad guys they will probably fly below radar and .30-06 at the prop assy should drop it but that is conjecture. But there are lots of shortrange flying toys that can be retrofitted w/ cameras etc. for recon. Does anyone have any idea how to make a drone with more than a hundred foot range?

      • There is a program for teaching gun safety to kids in place. It’s been around for years. I don’t get why most schools aren’t using it?

        • HomeINsteader says:

          I suspect the answers are a multiplicity. For starters, teachers are having a hard enough time teaching the basics because of all the other “mess” they have to deal with every day. Then there are the parents who would go ballistic, which is probably most of them in some parts of the country, and a few in others. And the lawsuits the school system would have to engage in having taken such action (to allow teaching gun handling in schools). For the same reasons schools no longer teach civility, manners, gymnastics, health, conflict resolution, etc.

          • HomeINsteader,
            The Eddy Eagle program does not teach gun handling, but teaches a simple message. “If you find a gun, Stop, Don’t touch, Leave the area, Tell an adult”. I did successfully get this program into several local preschools, and the NRA will provide the materials free of charge when it’s asked for on school letterhead. The program is also being taught in some of the DARE programs.
            My daughter quite literally cut her teeth on this program, actually on the Eddie Eagle dolls beak.

  6. For the Second and Third post this shows the lack of intelligence in the Teaching Profession

    • YUP! It is amazing how little ability to think some of them have.

    • Judy, another one says:

      But if they don’t, their jobs are on the line for NOT turning it in.

    • Encourager says:

      Yes, I agree, Zeker98, but it seems to me that this is aimed at ‘training’ children that guns are evil, all guns are evil, even your finger gun is evil, your squirt gun is evil, too. It is called brainwashing. Turning them into mindless little robots. Makes me sick; and I am glad I home-schooled.

      • Tactical G-Ma says:

        Since teachers are no longer able to adequately discipline students and parents don’t want to be bothered with it, if doping the kid doesn’t work call the police.

      • Encourager,
        I absolutely agree. If we can make them “taboo” and “evil” starting with the kids, then eventually not enough folks will own them to make a difference. The progressives have been at this since the early 1900’s, so another generation doesn’t matter if they can make their end goal, without spilling any of their own blood and treasure.

  7. Another reason to homeschool your kids if you can. I would like to make a bumpersticker that says. My homeschooled kid is smarter then your honor student.

    • axelsteve,

      Try CafePress

    • Encourager says:

      LOL, Axelsteve! That is a duh! If course your homeschooled kids are smarter than the honor student – they have been taught how to THINK and REASON and USE COMMON SENSE!

      • HomeINsteader says:

        And, at the risk of getting in trouble here, may I add: “how to work”? Developing a work ethic is no longer taught to most children. Have schooled children have few opportunities to “cheat” and nothing and nobody else to blame it on if they do.

        • HomeINsteader says:

          Home schooled children…brain is not working well…so sorry, y’all…

          • sw't-tater says:

            Exactly.homeschooled children learn the applications to the math and science problems.they learn to trust their parents,they learn howto think for themselves and to…look at all angles of a problem to determine all components.In homeschooling we take our society back one child at a time..schoolsystems are designed for masses,not individual outcomesof personal learning goals.

            • Buuurr in Ohio says:

              The above is fact. My kid is homeschooled by me and when folks back home get to see her they are amazed at how intelligent and self sufficient she is. She is, by everyone she meets, considered four or five. We are constantly telling people that she is two and a half and getting dirty looks like we are liars or something.

              She is in a league of her own within my extended family. She has cousins that are four and five that have to ask mommy and daddy for everything. My kid will ask for milk, bring you the jug and glass, and ask you to pour it – WITH a ‘Please’. The only thing she can not do is hold the milk high enough to pour it into the glass without spilling it/knocking over the glass. She can flip an egg and will wait until I tell her to do so. She can get her own cereal (with a little milk on the floor) and eat it with her spoon. She can carry on a somewhat sensible conversation with people about things relevant to her. She will tell them about her day and what daddy made for her to eat and whether or not she enjoyed it. Her most distinguishing trait is that she will tell you when she wants something or not and she will do it with force and reason. She will explain to you why she doesn’t want a banana. She will tell you she had one earlier and would now like a strawberry. It has been my experience that most kids this age (2 1/2) will flip out and cry until they get what they want.

              Watching her interact with kids at Sunday school is the best. You can see the difference in the home schools and the public schools. The home schools have confidence and will play happily AND share with most any kid in there. The public schools seem more to themselves and have a possessive trait that I find annoying. Publics seem to cry a lot more too now that I think on it. Even kids much older (5 or 6) than her seem behind her.

              I could go on about her all day but I think my point is made. She can count to twenty and most publics can’t get to ten. She can read all and write half her alphabet. She takes instruction very well and is a generally stable kid. You just don’t see that with public school.

              Oh! And she loves Jesus and gets to know who he is.


            • HomeINsteader says:

              As much as you deserve a big ol’, “Well done” for your efforts in producing these skills, no doubt, and as much as it would very easy for me to want to brag just a bit, maybe, about such a precocious child, if you rolled all these “gifts” together, they would be meaningless in the scales next to the last. WELL DONE, GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT. No, I’m not Y’eshua/Jesus Christ, but I can hear Him saying that to you!

            • Buuurr ,
              You’re DD sounds a lot like mine at that age. We opted not to home school; however, the DW volunteered at the elementary school and I attended school board meetings. We intervened when we thought it was necessary, and things came out well in the end. When our DD needed additional challenges, we worked with the school staff to ensure they were there and not just as make work to keep her busy. Turns out that at least in our school, when you get an exceptional kid and parents who care and will not take no for an answer, good things can happen, and many of the staff were actually pleased to be really teaching. She received a good start in life with the help of the school and has since gone on to a great college.
              I don’t think it’s a home school vs. public school issue, as much as an involved parent vs., allowing the public school to babysit. I have no doubt that you have an exceptionally bright child, but a lot of her actions are directly a part of how she was raised.
              I once read that 1 in 400 kids have an IQ of 140+ and 1 in 1000 have an IQ of 160+., yet I fail to see all of these geniuses in society, IMO because they are all forced into the same mold. A good parent keeps them out of that mold and cultivates their interests and abilities. Whether they get a PhD or become a plumber, they will end up being happy, and being the best at whatever the end up doing.

  8. Yet here we sit…WHINING AND TAKING NO ACTION!!!! THE pussification of America is complete

    • Don’t know about you, but I am making a list of causes and going to work!

      • Encourager says:

        There is a rally this Saturday at the capitol in MI for all gun owners. Then the next day the Lansing City Police are having a ‘buying all guns for cash or gift card’ day.

        I know of a few people who will be on the sidewalk offering those who want to get money for their guns a bit more than the police are offering, right along with all the proper paperwork to fill out to keep it nice and legal.

        I’d say THAT is doing something, TOTO. Now, what EXACTLY are YOU doing???

    • Mystery Guest says:

      the pussification of America in a lot of ways was well intentioned. It was called progress. We are (or most all) are used to central heat and air conditioning. We have roofs over our heads and most all of use can eat rather well if not overly well.
      Not one of us wants to give up creature comforts.
      So now things are going south and is picking up speed. We will have the whining and taking no action even if things are in either mode of easy life or survival.
      I have not heard of any discussion on what can be done and how and who would be trusted to lead such a action.
      As such we are a civilized people. We must maintain that as long as we can. We must deploy all other avenues untill there are not others left to us. We cannot display any agressive, spitful, mean, derogatory ambitions that will cause further actions towards law abiding citizens. We must not give them any fodder to continue to fuel their amibitions.
      In Ecclesiastes 3 it states there is a TIME for everything.
      So continue to prep, watch your back, and TIME will tell if the whining and no action continues.

      • The word civilization is sometimes simply defined as “‘living in cities'”. Civilization comes from the Latin civilis, meaning civil, related to the Latin civis, meaning citizen, and civitas, meaning city or city-state. Me, I don’t live in no stinking city so guess what that makes me.

        The Boss just looked over my shoulder and chimed in and said it’s seven letters long and starts with “a” and ends with “e”. Durn woman knows me better than anyone I guess….lol

      • Tactical G-Ma says:

        I agree. If and when the time comes we will be ready but now is not the time.

      • “I have not heard of any discussion on what can be done and how and who would be trusted to lead such a action.”

        I would like to nominate MD for that role 🙂

      • sw't-tater says:

        WE have already been told what to expect,those long lists of eo,s tell us what will be has been bought and stashed as has ammo for high powered weapons..they will have to blame someone or something to push this landslide over.those who are smart will not push on the rock but be ready to sidestep.many different roles will be necessary.someone will have to wear very versatile shoes.

    • riverrider says:

      LOL! they even took the iron out of the monopoly game and put in a cat!

      • riverrider says:

        and sitting here whining? nope. i joined 4 dif gun rights orgs and have been hammering my reps daily and i’m prepping for the next level in case that don’t work. well maybe a little whining, a soldier ain’t happy unless he’s whining. when he stops whining, watch out!

        • Yep… it’s those quiet folks you have to watch out for.

          • We Frogs need to jump out of the pot cause the heat is getting turned up!!! I agree with you RR we all need to be doing what you are every day!!!

            • I think “we” have already jumped out of the pot… and are trying to get the rest of the frogs to follow suit. We know what they are doing, but the rest of the populace is just enjoing the warm bubble bath.

  10. If y’all get the firefox 18.02 update today be sure to go into options and check your privacy settings. On all the machines I updated today it reset the privacy settings to their defaults

  11. The video pretty much says it all. Saw a similar clip of Ted Nugent vs. Piers Morgan , and I think you can all guess who won that one also.
    Regardless of what guns, if any each of us may own, we need to be vocal and active, and remind them all that we outnumber them and we vote accordingly.

  12. As far as piers goes I do not as a citizen bother to argue with a subject, I have already won by being a citizen. I have the constitution,piers has socoalism.

    • axelsteve,
      I understand that the Brits are concerned with his comments also. They’re afraid that he’ll piss us off enough to send him back and it took them more than 20 years to get rid of him. LOL

  13. In the article, “Government Loves You So Much It Wants To Help Manage Your Retirement Account”, all I can say is no big surprise.

    Richard Cordray who heads the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is an Ohio Politician and a very smart guy. I’ve met him on numerous occasions, generally when he was running for the next office. The problem with him in my opinion is that he is like many elitists who think they are smarter than the rest of us, and that we could somehow benefit with them in control of our lives. On the upside, he was one of those non-recess, recess appointments, so he and his agency may be having some difficulties.

    The article also states, “Well, no one needs to wonder if they have fallen prey to a scam, because there is no reasonable doubt about it—they have! The scam is called Social Security. Another is called Medicare. Yet these people are going to be trusted to protect us from scams?” I know that I, and probably most of you, did not fall prey to a scam; but, instead were forced into that scam at gunpoint, and if you don’t believe that, just try not paying your taxes for a few years and see what happens.

    • riverrider says:

      they want to mandate that the funds invest a large percent into gov debt. a steady stream of “revenue” that then never intend on paying.

    • I’ve heard talk of some draining their accounts and investing in silver and gold. At leas then it’s harder for the govt to get their hands on it. Seems we are slowly working our way to a credits type of system when it’s only numbers on a computer screen. This is probably gonna be a bad thing.

      • riverrider says:

        careful with the metals. they have already been wargaming levying a huge tax on metals when/if you cash them in, and even so far as asking you to declare and pay taxes on what we keep. so far it hasn’t flown because a lot of them own metals too. their hypocrisy knows no bounds.

          Yeah, but, the world was a different place the, TGMa. Not nearly as many sheeple and the Potentate wasn’t cheering them on.

          By the way, Jane became a Sister in Christ a few years ago; you may recall that Ted openly stated that had everything to do with them parting company; he had no use for “Christians”. Jane has had a slow road in learning what that means, but, as I understand things, she IS a Sister in Christ (the weaker vessel, nevertheless).

    Great story about the wheelbarrow. Most interesting and I really enjoy that kind of reading.


  19. These stories of “guns” or such at school are really starting to get to me. “No Tolerance” seems to really mean “No Intelligence”. Suspending 5 yr. olds for holding their hand like a gun? Pictures on the computer? Corners town from a piece of paper, so it looks like a gun outline? Imaginary grenades? When does this STUPIDITY stop?

  20. HomeINsteader says:

    + 1!

  21. From here on out I will never watch another movie Jim Carey is in. Come to think of it… I think I can come up with a pretty good way to voice my displeasure of his comments with a youtube video. Think I line up his movies in my collection and see what “no soul” can do to those movies. 🙂

  23. NewNormal says:

    If I were a new parent I would not send my children to public school. Its child abuse. Children cannot reason with the insanity of our school officials who are too lazy to make ration decisions. When my children were in high school I told them. DO NOT kid, joke or act in any way that pertains to violence, racism, or politics because the school system is run by crazy people.

  24. Here is something I think the pack might be interested in. How to Make a Solar Still to Make your own distilled water from stream or lake water, salt water, or even brackish, dirty water, using these DIY Solar Still Plans. With just a few basic building materials, a sheet of glass and some sunshine, you can purify your own water at no cost and with minimal effort

    We live on a homestead, and are always looking for non-electric or home-made solutions to the unique problems of living off the grid and in the woods. I can see a trail wheelbarrow based on these diagrams. Love it!

    • riverrider says:

      c, we can’t blame the school/teachers when we don’t parent properly, nor demand more from our school systems. but “system” is part of the problem. shouldn’t be any “system”. should be neighborhood school, neighborhood run, funded as well or not as the neighborhood wants. and answerable to the neighborhood.jm2c 🙂

  27. HomeINsteader says:

    So true, rr. Personally, I feel sorry for anyone who is trying to teach in the public school system today.

    • there are a lot of good teachers, but there are some that are not . That was a joke I would tell the good ones to pick at them.

  28. Hunker-Down says:

    If a teacher is afraid of guns because they have never touched one, and daddy taught them to ‘never touch’, it would be natural to pass on the same to their students.

    Lets kick it up a notch and introduce the possibility that those NRA gun nuts just might get their way and it becomes a requirement that teachers get trained, then armed.

    But I’m afraid, their bad, somebody might get hurt, I don’t want to, its not right, it cost too much, I might shoot myself, I havent got the time to do the training and it might hurt, its scary, what will my students think, what will the neighbors think, I don’t want to be forced to do something I have already decided I will not like.

    So, my students are not allowed to say ‘gun’ words, not allowed to throw imaginary hand grenades, make gun silhouettes with their fingers OR IN ANY WAY THREATEN MY BOOGEY-MAN.

    By the way, I’m on the school board and this will be school policy.

    • HD,
      Buckeye Firearm Association has made an offer to train teachers, not only enough for their concealed carry, but including some tactical training here in Ohio. The last I heard, they had over 600 applications, nationwide for the training. There may be light at the end of the tunnel, it’ll just be a long tunnel and a fight for every inch.
