Ironically, it's my birthday.

And some children will never have one.  Here's a comment on this article which you all might find interesting:

I have never had an abortion, but I had a couple of close calls where it was an option to be wrestled with or thought about. I was strictly pro-life in my youth, before I saw personally how decent people using birth control could still end up in such a situation. I shifted from pro-life to pro-choice…and now with more time and (I hope) wisdom I find myself shifting again. 
There are some rules that seem to benefit no one. They may be inconvenient or painful to enforce, to live with. They simply affirm something powerful beyond words to the society that upholds them. 
The value of human life is one of those things. There are human monsters like Stalin for whom humans had no right to live unless they fit into his 5 year plan. If you didn’t fit his plans, if you were not useful to him, you had no right to live. Humans were simply fancy animals, like cattle that could be culled by their owners, the People In Charge. 
Abortion taps into the same underlying assumptions, doesn’t it? It is genocide writ small. The mass of abortions may have been called mass murder, but it still one of the most personal and intimate deaths: one womb, and one human heart. 
It is rejection of the idea that humans are valuable because they are, not because of what they can do for another. Abortion is an affirmation that human life has no inherent value: A life that does not fit into your personal 5 year plan has no right to exist.

Ponder that a while.

Happy now, you lying bastards?

Gun grabbers are driven absolutely insane with fear and rage at the sight of an armed citizen peacefully going about their lives.  Many of them have suggested that they or their fellow hoplophobes should call the police and claim that they felt threatened, a practice known as "SWATting."

On August 5th, someone appears to have followed that advice, and now an innocent man lies dead.  I'm not going to go into the shoot-first-forget-the-questions tactics that seem to be all too common in today's law enforcement.  Instead, I'll point you to the gun-grabbers' utter lack of shame over an incident that they may well--wittingly or not--have instigated.

I would not be surprised it is damage control. The focus on the killing of John Crawford is now targeted towards Ronald Ritchie who made what seems to be a highly exaggerated in danger 911 call that set up the kill chain that took John Crawford’s life. 
All of the sudden, all those tweets and Facebook posts from their followers telling others to call police and lie about what a peaceful gun owner  is doing have become political poison. And if charges are ever brought against Ritchie, CSGV and other gun groups are gonna take a wrecking ball to the chin with so many examples of their hate-filled posts screen captured and kept by gun bloggers everywhere. 
And they won’t be able to hide about not keeping track of what is going on since they are damned good at blocking and banning anybody who is pro-Second Amendment  from their timelines. Basically they are condemned to admit they allowed and maybe even encouraged Hate Speech DeLuxe.

This is what they wanted, what they encouraged, what they practically demanded.  Upon learning of the results, any sane human being capable of the slightest shred of remorse would be doing whatever they could to try to make things right for Mr. Crawford's family.  At the very least, they ought to sit down, shut up and go find something productive to do with their wretched lives.

Instead, they throw the Race Card and the Anti-Government card, even though neither of these have the slightest application in this instance, except in the minds of racists and collectivists.  (Although I'll proudly pick up that Anti-Government card.  Whaddya mean, "our own government?"  I didn't vote for these assholes, and they sure don't represent me, or America in general.)  Anything to deflect any trace of responsibility from themselves and their paranoid hate-mongering.

Well, I hope it doesn't work.  I hope every single one of you cowardly, lying scum who called for this type of action are tracked down and brought up on charges and/or sued into oblivion for contributing to the wrongful death of John Crawford.  And I pray that Almighty God has mercy on your shriveled, blackened souls, because you're going to need it on your Last Day.

RIP, Mr. Crawford.  May the Lord bless and keep you, and may He help comfort your loved ones in this their time of trial.

If this isn't a T-shirt, it should be.

This is AMERICA.

We drive pickup trucks.
We carry guns.
We drink beer.
We eat meat.
We work hard.
We respect the flag.
We worship God.

If this causes a problem for you...
feel free to LEAVE!

Yes...but what, exactly, IS it?

I'm talking about money.  What is money?  Too many people don't understand that:

...Money isn’t gold.  Money isn’t pieces of paper.  Money isn’t zeroes and ones on a computer server.  Money is human life and effort manifested in an agreed-upon form which is used as a convenient medium of exchange.

If you don't fully and completely understand that, re-read this until it sinks in.  It's important, Proglodytes--trust me.
