Liberty or Tyranny?

Having discarded the Bible and our morals, we are now up that proverbial creek without a paddle in sight. ‘We has met the enemy and he is us.’ ~ Pogo

Freedom Is Just Another Word...

Sent to me via email…~ via RHM



“It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without

God and the Bible.”

President George Washington

“Liberty cannot be preserved without

general knowledge among the people.”

President John Adams

“Our Constitution was made only for a

moral and religious people. It is wholly

inadequate to the government

of any other.”

President John Adams

“A government for the people must

depend for its success

on the intelligence, the morality,

the justice, and the interest of the

people themselves.”

President Grover Cleveland


“Our program necessarily includes the

propaganda of atheism.”

Vladimir Lenin

“Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference:

while democracy seeks

equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality

in restraint and servitude.”

Alexis de Tocqueville

“Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could

Thanks to Give Me Liberty for alerting me to another tragedy brought to the world by islam.

Give Me Liberty

This is from  Pamela Geller’s Atlas Shrugs.

Savages stuck in the Seventh Century strikes again.

 The images below are very graphic.


Why does it matter that the practice of honor killing has Islamic sanction? Because if the roots of honor killing are never discussed and always ignored, the practice will never stop. Until the Islamic roots of the practice are discussed openly and human rights groups begin calling for reform, honor killings will continue in the Islamic world — and in Muslim communities in the West.

The Signs Are There…..

Not good. Improve your odds. Prep now.

The Defensive Training Group



“…according to a report from the Center for Security Policy presented to Congress in 2010, if our power grid were to be taken offline for an extended period of time, 9 out of 10 Americans would be dead within a year.

There would be no way to transport food because gas stations pumps would be inoperable. And even if they did work, the commerce systems which makes the exchange of goods possible would be offline. Couple that with water utilities not functioning due to lack of electricity, and we’re talking about a worst-case scenario so bad that this country may never recover.”

Optics Options for the Fighting Rifle


I’m old school, I still like to run my irons!


Optics break too often, I’ll stick with iron sights like Grandpa used!


Ten minutes after the lights go out, iron sights will rule the world!


There are a lot of reasons why optics of one sort or another have replaced iron sights as the primary sighting mechanism on the rifle of every serious gunfighter in the modern world. From actually being MORE robust than some of the iron sights available (The Magpul MBUS, for instance are complete pieces of shit), to the increased speed of acquiring a suitable sight picture, to more positive identification of targets, in the case of magnified options, the use of effective optics on a fighting rifle is not just the wave of the future, it’s the only serious option right now, today.
