Support the 2nd Amendment

New Jersey begins gun confiscation. New Jersey’s ban on high capacity magazines has been upheld by a federal court. This could mean door to door gun confiscation. This is literally the very reason citizens need 30 round magazines.

Lessons from Lithuania

Luke 11:21 – When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace.

This is a good time to repeal oppressive gun laws.

Lessons From Lithuania

By Neal Knox

Those who avoid and evade the reason for the Second Amendment to the US Constitution would surely admit that Lithuania had a Second Amendment. Mikhail Gorbachev violated in on March 22, 1990— Russian troops seized arms from the Lithuanian militia. Or was “the right of the people to keep and bear arms” actually violated two days earlier, when Premier Gorbachev ordered private citizens to turn in their hunting and competition guns to the Russian army within one week “for temporary safekeeping” or have them confiscated and their owners imprisoned? Or was “the right of the people to keep and bear arms” initially violated many years before, when the people were first prohibited from possessing guns without permission of government and laws were passes requiring every gun to be registered?

In fact, the Soviet Constitution guarantees the people the right to keep and bear arms, and Lithuania is part of the Soviet Union— or so Gorbachev contends. But obviously the Soviet government pays no more attention to that constitution freedom guarantee than do the majority of the US government, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, or CBS and the Washington Post.

What is the difference, precisely, between the confiscation of private firearms in Lithuania and the confiscation ordered by S. 166, the Graves bill now pending in the New Jersey Senate? What is the difference, precisely, between the registration law in Lithuania— which makes confiscation possible— and the registration of military-style firearms required by California’s Roberti-Roos bill, which went into effect January 1, 1990. What is the difference, precisely, between Lithuania’s law prohibiting the people from owning military-style firearms and the so-called “assault rifle” bans now pending in both houses of Congress and in many states? The difference is that the people of the United States are free men and women who can trust their benevolent government. Forever?

NOTE: Nothing has so clearly demonstrated the reasons for the Second Amendment and the reasons it must be defended than when on Dec. 14, 1981, when Gen. Jaruzelski declared martial law in Poland, placed all press under total government control, and declared all firearms licenses and gun registration certificates void— requiring the licensed owners to turn in their registered guns within 48 hours. Of course, since the government knew where every gun was— except those in the hands of criminals— they had no choice but to comply.

GENESIS CHAPTER FIFTY


1 Now Joseph threw himself upon his father,

               Wept over him and kissed him. 2 Joseph then

               Told the physicians to embalm his father

Israel, and so the physicians did

               Embalm him, 3 taking a full forty days,

               For that was the time needed for embalming.

And seventy days Egyptians mourned him.

               4 When mourning days were over, Joseph said

               To Pharaoh’s court, “If in your eyes I have

Found favor, speak to Pharaoh for me. Tell

               Him this: 5 ‘My father made me swear an oath

               And said, “I am about to die; go bury

Me in the tomb in Canaan’s land that I  

               Dug for myself.” Now let me go up and

               Bury my father; then I will return,’”

6 And Pharaoh said, “Go up and bury your

               Own father, as he made you swear to do.”

               7 So Joseph went to bury his own father.

All Pharaoh’s staff went with him— eminent

               Men from his court and all the dignitaries

               Of Egypt– 8 in addition to all members

Of Joseph’s household and his brothers and

              Those who belonged to his own father’s household.

               Only their children and their flocks and herds

Were left in Goshen. 9 Chariots and horsemen

               Also went up with him. It was a quite

               Large company, 10 and when they neared the Jordan

At Atad’s threshing floor, they loudly and

               Bitterly mourned; and Joseph at that place

               Observed a week-long period to mourn

His father. 11 When the Canaanites who lived

               There saw the mourning at the threshing floor

               Of Atad, they said, “The Egyptians are

Holding a solemn mourning ceremony.”

               That’s why that place beside the Jordan is

               Called Abel Mizraim, 12 so Jacob’s sons

Did as he had commanded them: 13 They carried

               Him to the land of Canaan and they buried

               Him in the cave in the Machpelah field,

Near Mamre, one which Abraham had bought

               To be a place of burial from Ephron

               The Hittite, with the field. 14 Now after he

Had buried his own father, Joseph did

               Return to Egypt with his brothers and

               All others who had gone with him to bury

His father, 15 but then Joseph’s brothers, when

They saw their father was deceased, said, “What

If Joseph holds a grudge against us and

He pays us back for all the wrongs we did

To him?” 16 So they sent word to Joseph, saying,

“Before he died, your father left us these

Instructions: 17 ‘Say to Joseph this: I ask

That you forgive your brothers for the sins

And wrongs they did in treating you so badly.’

Now please forgive the sins of servants of

Your father’s God,” and when their message reached

Him, Joseph wept. 18 His brothers came and threw

Themselves down in front of him. “We’re your slaves,”

They said, 19 but Joseph said to them, “Don’t be

Afraid: Am I in God’s place? 20 You intended

To harm me, but God meant it to be good

To carry out what is now being done,

Saving of many lives, 21 so don’t be scared,

For I’ll provide for you and all your children.”

He soothed them and spoke kindly to them. 22 With

The family of his father, Joseph stayed

In Egypt, and he lived a hundred and

Ten years 23 and saw the children of Ephraim

To the third generation, and at birth

The children of Manasseh’s son named Makir

               Were placed at birth on Joseph’s knees, 24 then Joseph

Said to his brothers, “I’m about to die.

But God will help you and take you from this

               Land to the land by oath he promised to

               Abraham, Isaac and to Jacob.” 25 Joseph

Had sons of Israel swear him an oath

And said, “God will help you; then you must take

My bones from here,” 26 so Joseph died, aged one

Hundred ten. They embalmed him and then he

               Was placed inside a coffin within Egypt.

March 14
Constitution  

 

204.

Today the world is the victim of propaganda because people are not intellectually competent. More than anything, the United States needs effective citizens competent to do their own thinking.

~William Mather Lewis, President of George Washington University, 1923–1927

 

205.

Today the world faces a single man armed with weapons of mass destruction, manifesting an aggressive, bullying attitude, who may well plunge the world into chaos and bloodshed if he miscalculates. This person, belligerent, arrogant, and sure of himself, truly is the most dangerous person on Earth. The problem is that his name is George W. Bush, and he is our president.

~Jack M. Balkin, Knight Professor of Constitutional Law and the First Amendment, Yale Law School, September 22, 2002

 

 

California Cove

                              “you kings, be wise;

Be warned, you earthly rulers.”

~Psalm 2:10

I.
From New York, Texas, and D.C.
The weaving spiders come
To grow their fame and wealth and might
And pluck the precious plums.

They spend some time with employees
They pull the boys’ pants down
The Manly Coven thrills to cooks
Who profit from the clowns

And Doctor Octopus plays chess
In evening’s afterglow
As Thomas Paine stands in the light
Outside California Cove

II.
The Wicked Witch, her dreams are sleazy
“Bring my hammer and my toy,”
She joins her girlfriend in a basement
Where she keeps her golden boys

A jet brings Wild Bill Hickok
With coke from railroad tracks:
“These women are my property
The rest of you, go back”

And the lawyers from the swamp
Have bought a porn star’s trove;
Foundations skim donations
At California Cove

III.
Underground rooms are busy
Prince Charming has spurned his bride
The Madames from North Beach
Are shocked to view the homicides

And Cain has caught and clobbered Abel
Atop the Temple Mount
Where Abraham has waited years
To open a new account

Monk Rasputin has romped with maids
And ruined Chicago’s homes
He’ll lead the ceremony
Tonight at California Cove

IV.
The Powermongers give talks
Beside a tree-lined lake
And they pretend that they don’t care
What titles they may take

Their eyes transfixed by symbols
From ancient Babylon
They phrase their buzz words expertly
Nodding to the Ku Klux Klan

But their disguises aren’t so good
Down at the bordello
Where videos are made and stored
At California Cove

V.
Freddy Krueger scared the limo
That drove along Elm Street
Up to a grassy knoll
Where nightmares took their seats

And Caesar, on his right side,
Shot the peace candidate
Who would have stopped a foreign war
When profits come from hate

Weaving spiders fondly recall
Cave Men from long ago
Who fixed and tricked the sleeping giant
At California Cove

VI.
Vincent Vega, assigned his task,
Arranges maps and guns,
No matter why, the bullet flies,
He’ll notch another one.

Director Jay, on public pay,
Dislikes a journalist,
He calls a pal and pays his way,
“That boy won’t be missed.”

Twisted men meet and scratch their rears
They fight their vertigo
By acting like they have no fears
At California Cove.

VII.
Down trails, by trees, up forest tracks
Cave men hunt dangerous game
No deputy can find the bodies
And no one is to blame

Hog farmers come to clean the mess
The Cave Men leave behind
They’ll never tell the coppers
On what the pigs have dined

And by Washington’s Monument
The narcissists run moles
Who spy on Paine and Jefferson
At California Cove

VIII.
Now Cassius looked so long and lean
And called his bookie for a bet
A high-placed man would die that night,
A hardship he won’t regret

He forges 302s for Brutus
Persuading him to join
The pool of high-stakes players
With shiny Power Points

He wears fine suits and flashes smiles
As in a puppet show
You wouldn’t know his savage weeks
At California Cove

IX.
Now by the guarded entrance gate
Protesters carry signs,
A fat head sticks out from a limo
And in a high voice whines,

“Nurse Ratched will fix your head,
You nonconformist freaks,
She’ll shock your brain ‘til you comply
And you can only squeak”

The limo speeds inside the place
As though a racer drove
For fun and games and care in flames
At California Cove

X.
A songbird formed his whole career
By turning on his land
He’s sided with the enemies
And he should be banned

The songbird plans his funeral
As though he will soon die
But Grandpa knows he lied again
He’ll fake his death and fly

An orb or planet deep in space,
An isle off Mexico,
Nowhere to hide when he has come
From California Cove

XI.
In strides the smiling oil man
And he conducts a dance
He rests inside an ivy coffin
And takes the kids for romance

He stores his conscience in a vault
Inside an ocean trench
He tramps across the forest camp
To a girl he calls his wench

And Dr. Szell says open wide
He’ll probe for what you know
And if it hurts, why, tell the men
At California Cove

XII.
Rick Blaine rides to the airport in fog
With Ilsa as time goes by
He makes a heart-break tarmac deal
A patriot would buy

And Rocky’s ready for a fight
With clowns who harm his kids
And he will pound Count Dracula
‘Til his jawbone falls to bits

In subterfuge and trickery
The hungry ply their trade
The prostitutes have more morals
Than Cave Men who make AIDS.

XIII.
Before the panic and debris
Lucky Larry had breakfast toast
He checked fine print on policies
Assured to claim the most

Put options placed for profits max
In their overflowing cups
Godfathers took a front-row seat
To watch the nukes blow up

Goldfinger envies them so much
He will attend the Owl Show
To participate in sacrifice
At California Cove.

XIV.
As innocents are shot to death
Sheriff Hoyt says stand down
He takes his orders from half-high,
From Wendy and the clowns.

His handler, hideous harridan,
Runs spies in her domain
Wendy sells her country for a kiss
And tries to blackmail Tom Paine

A body on a beach tells tales
About the lawns she mows
Don’t double-cross that horrid boss
At California Cove

XV.
Dr. Downer creates diseases
So he can sell the cure
And puts the profits through a laundry
While he goes on a tour

Harry Lime promotes disorders
And bigger DSM’s
He will sell you pills through your doc
So he can buy more gems

He claims they’ll solve your problems
And keep you status quo
If you will buy his merchandise
At California Cove

XVI.
Cleopatra has sailed her barge
Downriver to the sea
While Antony professes love
He’s down on his knees

She smiles and checks computer files
That tell her all she needs
She’ll scare him with the dirt she has
And satisfy her greed

Her bank accounts are empty
Funds disappeared in holes
But she’ll replenish them with work
From California Cove.

XVII.
Too bad a minion in the crew
Has had enough of this
He hands the queen some poisoned wine
And seals it with a kiss

She flashes her shameless smirk
And downs the wine with flair
And says, “I’ll never be arrested–
Nobody would dare!”

And as she chokes and gasps
Her terror and panic grow:
“I should have told the truth
About California Cove.”

XVIII.
The pirate-profiteers hoist flags
Along the river bank:
“We’re only here for gold, you louts,
When tough, we’ll break ranks.”

Some ask them for their balance sheet
They plunge into a funk:
“If you invade our privacy
We’ll put you in a trunk.”

The Cave Men greet confusing men
Who play their puppet shows
And keep Tom Paine in heavy chains
At California Cove

XIX.
Darth Vader types the false flag scripts
His lackies carry out
And he eliminates the fools
Who harbor righteous doubts

Storm troopers come in force to drag
Off those who have switched sides
“You must remain in Darth’s plantation
Or we will tan your hide.”

The humble people in their fog
Don’t know which way to go
So Cave Men sneer and keep control
At California Cove.

XX.
Bonnie and Clyde’s machine guns
Have rusted in a heap
While they formed a foundation
To pillage sleeping sheep

“Honor? Integrity?
Those are for little folks.
We’re masters of the world,”
A Naked Caveman spoke.

Funny how planes smoke and crash
When people get too close
Funny about the accidents
From California Cove.

XXI.
Hannibal Lector’s on the loose
To grab a tasty bite
At Jimmy’s pizzeria
Where news anchors alight

Gordon Gekko works the phones
He’s shorted casino stock
Travis Bickle, wearing suit and tie,
Works with him round the clock

The Joker says he’ll bomb a building
To punish those in the know
And Dr. Downer joins him
At California Cove.

XXII.
Norman Bates runs in the shower stall
A butcher knife in hand
And Ellen Ripley slams his groin
Into his thyroid gland

And Atticus is standing up,
A prosecutor now,
With his unsealed indictments
He’ll drive the justice plow.

The Power Boys, like cornered rats,
Will bite to overthrow
The people’s choice and champ
At California Cove

XXIII.
Benedict Arnold in crosshairs
Behaves like he’s on meth
In the sewers and cesspools
The nameless songbird fakes his death

Mr. Potter now owns the town
Foreclosing on each one
Robin Hood shoots him with arrows
Because he owns no gun

The Cave Men party through the night
The Robber Barons gloat
Rape victims have nowhere to go
At California Cove

XXIV.
Tom Paine has started a storm
Ben Franklin flies a kite
The villagers awaken
The dawning of the light

And Harry Callahan has chased
The crooks from pole to pole
And when he cocks his forty-four
He knows they’ve sold their souls.

The moon is blood, the stars go out,
Hawaiian lava flows
And no one worships God
At California Cove

GENESIS CHAPTER FORTY-NINE


1 Then Jacob called out for his sons and said:

“Gather around so I can tell you what

Will happen to you in the days to come.

2 Assemble; listen, sons of Jacob; hear      

Your father Israel. 3 Now Reuben, you’re

My firstborn and my might, the first sign of

My strength, you who excel in honor and

In power. 4 Turbulent as waters, you

No longer will excel, for you went up

Onto your father’s bed, onto my couch,     

And you defiled it. 5 Simeon and Levi are

Brothers−their swords are brutal weapons. 6 Let

Me not go in their council, let me not

Join their assembly, for they have killed men

In anger and have hamstrung oxen as

They pleased. 7 I curse their anger that’s so fierce,

Their fury that’s so cruel! In Jacob I

Will scatter them and I’ll disperse them in

The land of Israel. 8 Your brothers will

Give you praise, Judah; your hand will be on

Your adversaries’ neck; your father’s sons

Will bow to you. 9 You are a lion’s cub,

O Judah; you return from prey, my son,

Who like a lion crouches and lies down,

Much like a lioness−who dares rouse him?

10 The scepter will not go from Judah, and

The ruler’s staff will not go from between

His feet, until he comes to whom it does

               Belong and the obedience of nations

Is his, 11 for he will tie his donkey to

A vine, his colt onto the choicest branch;

He’ll wash his clothes in wine, his robes in blood

Of grapes. 12 His eyes will be as dark as wine,

His teeth as white as milk. 13 And Zebulun

Will live beside the seashore and become

A haven for the ships; his border will

Extend toward Sidon, 14 and now: Issachar’s

               A rawboned donkey lying down between

Two saddlebags, 15 and when he sees how good

His resting place is, how pleasant the land,

He’ll bend his shoulder to the burden and

Acquiesce to forced labor. 16 Dan will give

His people justice as one of the tribes

               Of Israel. 17 He’ll be a serpent by

The roadside, like a viper on the path,

That bites the horse’s heels so that its rider

Tumbles backward. 18 I look for your deliverance,

O LORD. 19 A raiding band will strike at Gad,

But he’ll attack them at their heels. 20 The food

For Asher will be rich; he will provide

Refreshments suitable to feed a king.

21 Naphtali is a doe set free that bears

Fair fawns, 22 and Joseph is a fruitful vine,

A fruitful vine beside a spring, whose branches

Climb up a wall. 23 With bitterness the archers

Attacked him; with hostility they shot

At him. 24 His bow stayed steady, his strong arms

Stayed limber, due to Jacob’s Mighty One’s

Hand, yes, due to the Shepherd, who’s the Rock

Of Israel, 25 due your father’s God

Who helps you, due to the Almighty, who

Blesses you with the blessings of the heavens

Above, the blessings of the deep that lies

Below, the blessings of the breast and womb.

26 Your father’s blessings are superior

To blessings of the ancient mountains, to

The bounty of the age-old hills. Let all

These rest on Joseph’s head, upon the brow

Of Joseph, prince among his brothers. 27 Now

Jacob Blesses Joseph

          

Benjamin is a hungry wolf; in morning

He gobbles up his prey, in evening he

Divides the plunder.” 28 These are the twelve tribes

Of Israel, and this is what their father

Said to them when he blessed them, giving each

The blessing pertinent to him, 29 then he

Instructed them: “I am about to be

Gathered to my own people. Bury me

With my own fathers in the cave that’s in

The Hittite Ephron’s field, 30 the cave within

The field of Machpelah, near Mamre in

Canaan, which Abraham did buy from Ephron

The Hittite, with the field, to be a tomb.

31 There Abraham and his wife Sarah were

Interred, there Isaac and his wife Rebekah

Were buried, and it’s there I buried Leah.

32 The field and cave in it were bought from Hittites.

33 When Jacob had so taught his sons, he drew

His feet up in the bed; he breathed his last

               And went to his people who had passed.
