Gun Control History Lesson

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians unable to defend themselves es, were rounded up and
exterminated.

Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million ‘educated ‘ people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century
because of gun control: 56 million.

It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first year results are now in:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent.
Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent.
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent. (yes, 44 percent)
In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the
criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns. It will never happen here? I bet the Aussies said that too!
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their
prey is unarmed. There has also been a dramatic increase in break-
ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns.

The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.
You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun – control laws adversely affect
only the law-abiding citizens. Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind him of this history lesson.

With Guns………..We Are ‘Citizens’, without Them……..We Are
‘Subjects’.

During W.W.II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED! Note: Admiral Yamamoto
who crafted the attack on Pearl Harbor had attended Harvard from
1919-1921 & was Naval Attaché to the U. S. 1925-28. Most of our Navy was destroyed at Pearl Harbor & our Army had been deprived of funding & was ill prepared to defend the country. It was reported that when asked why Japan did not follow up the Pearl Harbor attack with an invasion of the  U . S. Mainland, his reply was that he had lived in the U.S. & knew that almost all households had guns.

If you value your freedom Please spread this anti-gun control message to all your friends! The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing!

Another political post…sort of.

The following is from an email that Jose sent me…Thanks Jose!

 

D.C. Airline ticket Agent Stories. “Sad but true”.


A DC airport ticket agent offers some examples of ‘why’ our country is in trouble!

**1. I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn’t get messed up by being near the window. (On an airplane!)**


**2. I got a call from a candidate’s staffer, who wanted to go to Capetown. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information, and then she interrupted me with, ”I’m not trying to make you look stupid, but Capetown is in Massachusetts. ”**

Without trying to make her look stupid, I calmly explained, ”Cape Cod is in Massachusetts , Capetown is in Africa ”**

Her response – click.**


**3. A senior Vermont Congressman called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando ..**

He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that’s not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state.

He replied, ‘don’t lie to me, I looked on the map and Florida is a very thin state!” (OMG)**

**4. I got a call from a lawmaker’s wife who asked, ”Is it possible to see England from Canada?”** I said, ”No.”

She said, ”But they look so close on the map.” (OMG, again!)**

**5. An aide for a cabinet member once called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas ..**

When I pulled up the reservation, I noticed he had only a 1-hour layover in Dallas ..

When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, ”I heard Dallas was a big airport, and we will need a car to drive between gates to save time.” (Aghhhh)**


**6. An Illinois Congresswoman called last week. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:30 a.m., and got to Chicago at 8:33 a.m.**

I explained that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois , but she couldn’t understand the concept of time zones. Finally, I told her the plane went fast, and she bought that.**

**7. A New York lawmaker called and asked, ”Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know whose luggage belongs to whom?” I said, ‘No, why do you ask?’**

She replied, ”Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a tag on my luggage that said (FAT), and I’m overweight. I think that’s very rude!”

After putting her on hold for a minute, while I looked into it. (I was crying laughing). I came back and explained the city code for Fresno, CA is FAT – Fresno Air Terminal), and the airline was just putting a destination tag on her luggage.

**8. A Senator’s aide called to inquire about a trip package to Hawaii. After going over all the cost info, she asked, ”Would it be cheaper to fly to California , and then take the train to Hawaii ?”**

**9. I just got off the phone with a freshman Congressman who asked, ”How do I know which plane to get on?”**


I asked him what exactly he meant, to which he replied, ”I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these planes have numbers on them.”**

**10. A lady Senator called and said, ”I need to fly to Pepsi-Cola,Florida ..** Do I have to get on one of those little computer planes?”


I asked if she meant fly to Pensacola, FL on a commuter plane. She said, ”Yeah, whatever, smarty!”**

**11. A senior Senator called and had a question about the documents he needed in order to fly to China. After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded him that he needed a visa. ‘Oh, no I don’t.**

I’ve been to China many times and never had to have one of those.” I double checked and sure enough, his stay required a visa.

When I told him this he said, ”Look, I’ve been to China four times. And every time they have accepted my American Express!”**

**12. A New Mexico Congress woman called to make reservations, ”I want to go from Chicago to Rhino, New York .” I was at a loss for words. Finally, I said, ”Are you sure that’s the name of the town?” ‘**


‘Yes, what flights do you have?” replied the lady. After some searching, I came back with, ”I’m sorry, ma’am, I’ve looked up every airport code in the country and can’t find a Rhino anywhere.’

”The lady retorted, ”Oh, don’t be silly! Everyone knows where it is. Check your map!”

So I scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered, ”You don’t mean Buffalo, do you?”

The reply? ”Whatever! I knew it was a big animal.”**



**Now you know why the Government is in the shape that it’s in!**

Could anyone be this DUMB?

YES, THEY WALK AMONG US, ARE IN POLITICS, AND THEY CONTINUE TO BREED

 

 

Tea-bagging Obama & Congress!

Yes I attended one of the many tax day tea parties that took place all over the country yesterday. I guess now I could end up on some kind of homeland security watch list along with the soldiers who are returning home after serving our country. If you haven’t heard about the new report that homeland security distributed to law enforcement, you’d better check into it. There is some very weird and scary shit happening in the U.S. these days. What the hell is happening to our country? It’s like the nuts are running the nuthouse! I am mad-as-hell about all the lunacy going on in the the country these days. All of these Obama supporters are like a bunch of brain dead zombies…wake up people!

I made two signs for the tea party, they read: “Stimulus…the new weapon of mass destruction”, & “ENOUGH…Americans can’t afford anymore CHANGE!”.

OMG IT’S REALLY ME!

Hey everyone I thought I would stop by and put up my yearly post…LOL. I hope all of you have been healthy and prosperous. I don’t know if you’ve heard this from dragon or not, but Jose and I got back together after a 5 month separation. We are doing really well and have worked a lot of things out. I have a part-time job training to be an optician, a new car, and I’m enrolling in some classes to get a degree in web design/digital communications. I even had my nose pierced, can you believe that?! I’m finally getting a chance to have a life! Needless to say I’ve been extremely busy, but I like it….I like it a lot!

I really miss you guys (some of you were like a virtual family), but it seems like when I do get extra time to blog I can never think of anything to say. Huh imagine that….me speechless! I will understand if there isn’t anyone left to read this, but if you are still with me please leave a comment and fill me in on what’s been going on in your lives.

TKFN,

Goldbloom

In remembrance of the victims of 9/11….

We will never forget you, and we will always remember what was done to you & our country on September 11, 2001. May God bless America on this day and every other day, and may all the families that were affected by 9/11 find some peace on this day.

Calm down HB…I’m posting something just for you!

I couldn’t help but think of hoosierboy when I looked out the kitchen window today and saw this:

When I looked out later there were two of these beasts on the web. If you look closely (and can take your eyes off the hideous thing) hanging around with the big spider is a very tiny one….same thing with the other big one. It turns out that the little ones are the males, heh!

A day in the wild…..

…or spending the day with dragon. 

Last week we went to McClellan’s Critters and saw all sorts of wild animals. Although Dragon was still the most ferocious looking of them all…Hehehe. Below are some pics from the visit.

This was a baby tiger that was running around loose…it was the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen.

This is Jeremy wih a six day old goat.

This was dragon holding a snake who was trying to give her a rectal exam. 🙂 Notice the look on her face.

Here’s Dragon and Jeremy with a bear cub…they were sooo cute! If you held your hand out they would grab your hand like a baby grabs a bottle and proceed to suck your fingers.

We also got to hold baby alligators, they were pretty cute too. The place was simply amazing and being able to interact with the animals like we did was an awesome experience. Jeremy had a blast and it was wonderful watching him with the animals. We can’t wait to go back.

Thanks Michelle

Dragon and I received a care package from reader Michelle….Thanks Michelle! It contained lots of stuff for dragon and I to fight overshare. Actually we didn’t fight, I just hid everything from Dragon…just kidding Michelle. 🙂 The package contained some awesome inspirational books, and a STEVEN TYLER bookmark…woohoo! There was also some yummy stuff, you can never go wrong with chocolate…NEVER! There was also some beauty products, which Dragon is in desperate need of so I’ll probably let the poor thing have them. There were also some green tea, dip mix…it was just a box full of stuff and Drags and I had fun going through it. So again…Thanks Michelle for the pleasant surprise.

All has been pretty quiet on the home front, trying to get a routine down and get used to not having Jose and the other 2 kids around. It all still seems pretty surreal to me at this point. Jose is feeling some anger towards me right now so he said he doesn’t want to talk to me for a while. Hopefully that changes, because I would hate to lose him as a friend.

So has anything outrageous or entertaining happened to any of you lately? If so PLEASE share, I need something to make me laugh right now.

Just call me nurse Goldbloom

Today dragon had outpatient surgery performed and she is now in a drug induced coma. I’ve been taking care of her this evening since tonight is opening night for a play MrDrags has been working on. She’s been a very naughty patient so I’m just glad the drugs have finally kicked in. For starters the doctor told her no smoking for a while….so what do you think she did first thing upon entering the car? If you guessed “lighting up a cigarette” you are absolutely right. she’s so obstinant sometimes! Then when we get home she drinks coffee….she’s supposed to keep ice packs on the area to reduce swelling and slow bleeding! The instructions said “may use heat after 24 hours.” She also wanted us to dance and when I said absolutely not she wanted us to go plant some of her flowers…can you believe that?

Maybe while she’s out I should put some shaving cream on her hand and tickle her nose. Or I could get a permanent marker and write bad words all over her face.

Nah I should just leave her alone, because she WOULD get even…I’ve learned that from experience.

Ah isn’t that cute…she’s all sacked out and snoring like there’s no tomorrow. Good Lord I think she’s even slobbering. 🙂

Well I’d better go relax while I can, when she wakes up she’ll start ringing  the little bell that she keeps on her night stand. Besides I haven’t scrubbed the kitchen floor yet or waxed dragon’s legs & buttocks…hopefully she’ll overlook this since I’ve had to postpone my duties to take care of her. Wish me luck!
