Destruction

 

Battle lines are drawn. The NRA is the target du-jour of the litany of Democrat Presidential candidates, vying for boldest denouncement of the millions of armed, peaceful, and law-abiding citizens in America. Six million strong, this large sector of the American public is an easy target for these “bold” politicians to threaten fearlessly; after all, they are law-abiding.

Not one of these six million plus members of the NRA has ever committed mass murder, though gun control advocates have waited with bated breath for the first offense. In lieu of a specific scapegoat, leaders with “vision”, under the haze of ambiguity, have chosen to smear the entirety of the NRA membership as killers. With every tragic massacre that stains our troubled Nation, it’s a tactic of old: hang the guilt of the demented on the guiltless.

Joe Biden has sworn to destroy the NRA. As the Democrats present their “fresh, new look”, did the Former Vice-President have a “senior moment” and forget that the NRA is made up of U.S. Citizens? The NRA leadership, he despises so much, are duly elected by those members.

Joe Biden may be better served to pinch himself, rather than passing members of the opposite sex, and wake back to the reality that the 2nd Amendment was set in place to protect the citizens’ Natural Born Right to Self-Defense against a government that seeks their harm, specifically people groups that have fallen out of favor with said government. The 2nd was designed to stop Mr. Biden’s plan of destruction.

There is history. Realizing that much of our history has been largely rewritten, digging deep into history is necessary.. There is some mention, some might recall, of another politician, some years back in another place, who targeted six million people for destruction.

Monday Irony (canine legal edition)

61180272_447986529310068_8042875961739313152_nI thought it a little disrespectful on Memorial Day weekend that, upon hearing of the latest legislative prowess in Augusta, my dog, while lying on her LL Bean dog sofa (doggie penthouse) feeling greatly mistreated, is demanding that she have a lawyer too. She further insists that they be made of top quality rawhide and bacon flavored. She wants them sent in bulk so they will last her at least 15 minutes to a half an hour.

Monday Irony

When lawmakers in Maine, the safest state in the Republic, want to pass laws to replicate the states with the highest crime rates.

When lawmakers in Maine take an oath to uphold the State and Federal Constitution and then spend a whole legislative session and taxpayers’ monies questioning a Natural Born Right, which the Maine State Constitution guarantees emphatically “shall never be questioned!”

Arbitraitors

 

The pulse of life. Heroic emergency workers will fight to try and save it. Medical advancements are made in desperate search to heal and prolong its energy.

Expectant parents rejoice to hear its sound throbbing in the womb. Those same parents may have to hope in an anguished expectation that a talented doctor can work within that womb to mend its weakened state. Still others, when aware of its quickening sound within, will seek a doctor to extinguish that spark of life that is the heartbeat.

The simplest way to verify life and death. Does the heart beat? And the most common of senses beats a path to the doorway of the conscience.

For the veil no longer lingers over when the life begins. The heart beats loud its evidence. Now the battle over the value and who will arbitrate the value of a life?

Stark lines are drawn between those who call to God as the giver of life and those who call on government to arbitrate who is worthy to live. Those who abhor an earthly litigation for life or death are now forced by that government to fund and support the very thing they despise. A thing history describes as tyranny itself.

It stands before us now that those who hold power will arbitrate life and death. If this is true, we are traitors to all that history has warned us. In the shadows, once so distant, nearer now in the hallows, the ghastly specters of humanity, who wielded horribly the power to chose those worthy of life and death, seem just a heartbeat away.
