The Absurdity of Consensual Crimes in Our Free Country.

There is a great book about so called "consensual crimes" called Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do: The Absurdity of Consensual Crimes in Our Free Country.

You can read it free online here:

I have a strong Libertarian bent and I think if dumbasses want to thin the gene pool, let them.

Many of society's woes are not caused by things like street drugs, but by making them illegal, expensive, unregulated, and highly profitable.

White Pride?

I received this e-mail about White Pride. It contained some *racial slurs and had a lot of rhetoric in it, but it did make many valid points. I cleaned it up some, but the heart is still there. I personally think pride is overrated. I'll never be ashamed of who I am, although I might occasionally be ashamed of what I do. I did nothing to deserve, good or bad, to be born white. Why should I be proud of it? Historically it did offer advantages, but not nearly so much anymore. We have created reverse discrimination instead of equality. I'm interested in others' intelligent opinions about this, so I am posting it.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
I have been wondering why Whites are racists, and no other race is......

Proud to be White

"There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc.
And then there are just Americans. You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction. You call me 'White boy,' 'Cracker,' 'Honkey,' 'Whitey,' 'Caveman'... and that's OK. But if I use a *racial slur, You call me a racist.

You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you... so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?

You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day.
You have Black History Month. You have Cesar Chavez Day.
You have Yom Hashoah. You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi.
You have the NAACP. You have BET.... If we had WET (White Entertainment Television), we'd be racists. If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists.

If we had White History Month, we'd be racists.

If we had any organization for only whites to 'advance' OUR lives, we'd be racists.

We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce. Wonder who pays for that?

A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant.

If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships... You know we'd be racists.
There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US . Yet if there were 'White colleges', that would be a racist college.

In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.

You are proud to be black, brown, red, yellow and orange, and you're not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.

Minorities can rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.

I am proud..... But you call me a racist.
Why is it that only whites can be racists?"

There is nothing improper about this e-mail. Let's see which of you are proud enough to send it on. I sadly don't think many will. That's why we have LOST most of OUR RIGHTS in this country. We won't stand up for ourselves!
It's not a crime YET... but getting very close!

10 Rules for a Gunfight

This is one of my absolute all time favorite T-shirts. I thought I'd share.

10 Rules for a Gunfight

1) Bring a gun. Preferably bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns.

2) If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight bring a long gun and a friend with a long gun.

3) Have a back-up plan because the first one won't work.

4) Always cheat. Always win. The only unfair gunfight is the one you lose.

5) Someday someone may kill you with your own gun but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.

6) Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap, life is expensive.

7) In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.

8) Only hits count. The only thing worse than a miss is a slow miss.

9) Be polite. Be professional. But have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

10) Watch their hands. Hands kill. (In Glock we trust. Everyone else keep your hands where I can see them).
