An Open Letter to US and State Senators, Reps and the Attorney General:

An Open Letter to US and State Senators, Reps and the Attorney General:  

Dear Distinguished Senators, Governor, Lt. Governor and Representatives:

As a culture, we seem to be growing increasingly fond of savagely attacking previously inalienable liberties in the interest of a greater (collective) good. And subscribing to this fondness, as the Left has done almost without exception, seems  akin to an elitist fashion statement; last year it was bell bottoms and bangs, this year it's persecuting Conservative opinions, pursuits and people, every bit as viciously as the torment of Polish Jews in the early days of Nazi occupation. (And all-the-while calling US Nazis or Fascists, only serves to magnify the outrage with lethal doses of appalling hypocrisy, for which no one holds them accountable.)

Gun owners in particular have been maligned by those in Washington, Hollywood and the press, who are long on contempt and short on integrity --- not to mention truth --- as they've abandoned the realm of professional and social responsibility and embraced the title of Lapdogs for the Communist Party, or worse. With the notable exceptions of Fox News and a handful of veterans from the performing arts such as Clint Eastwood and Ted Nugent, the rest have become insidious cancers on the face of everything America USED to stand for, and are actually proud of themselves because of it.

True, we've suffered unimaginable tragedies, some involving young children, at the hands of sociopathic monsters with guns. I can't even imagine the unspeakable nightmare of the parents of Sandy Hook victims, seeing their children's Holiday gifts under their lighted trees, knowing they'll never be opened or enjoyed.

But to blame the NRA is an abomination on its face. Worse yet is that those responsible for this know it. Just the same, if we want to talk about the association, fine, let's talk about it:

Who was it that zealously advocated the genocide of white Americans on some malevolent racist television show? It wasn't the NRA. (It was an African-American actor and purported comedian.)

Who was it that threatened civil war and bloodshed over a Right-to-Work bill he didn't like --- following a gangland-style attack on innocent people that he apparently DID like? It wasn't the NRA. (It was a state assemblyman.)

Who was it who fuel-injected untold scores of assault weapons to border-hopping, drug-running hoodniks, who later turned them on American border patrol agents --- and got away with it scott-free, both legally and politically? It wasn't the NRA. (It was the current Administration.)

And who was it --- that is, who IS it --- who charges NONE of the aforementioned with ANY accountability at all, no matter what they do, including for actions which themselves had also caused death and mayhem? It wasn't the NRA. (It's the media and Democratic officeholders for the most part.)

So why is the association, and gun owners as a whole, being demonized now?

We need to be reminded that in years' and decades' past, when times
were safer and more peaceful, we had guns then, too. The intelligent approach is not to compare modern times to those of yesteryear and ask "what's the same as it was then?" --- that tells us nothing. The thing to do is ask, "what has CHANGED?"

Until that question receives the attention it deserves from lawmakers and the press, I urge you to vote a resounding NO on ANY gun control bill that comes to the Senate floor, including those dealing with Orwellian-style background checks the hoarding of personal data. Believe me...FAR more harm would come from this than any possible good. Thank you.  

With respect and sincerity,

Roderick J Senter Jr

Required Reading for Liberals

Required Reading for Liberals

Regardless of where your views may lie, you owe it to yourself to read this remarkable woman's testimony. The link above --- until it's disabled at least --- will take you a place you don't want any part of, but that you need to visit, just the same.

But since this link goes to a Facebook page, and FB is building a reputation for removing anything that is politically inconvenient to the Communist elite, Ms. Werthmann's entire address also appears below:  

December 22, 2012 - “What I am about to tell you is something you’ve probably never heard or read in history books,” she likes to tell audiences.

“I am a witness to history.

“I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history.

If you remember the plot of the Sound of Music, the Von Trapp family escaped over the Alps rather than submit to the Nazis. Kitty wasn’t so lucky. Her family chose to stay in her native Austria. She was 10 years old, but bright and aware. And she was watching.

“We elected him by a landslide – 98 percent of the vote,” she recalls.

She wasn’t old enough to vote in 1938 – approaching her 11th birthday. But she remembers.

“Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.”

No so.

Hitler is welcomed to Austria

“In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unem- ployed. We had 25 percent inflation and 25 percent bank loan interest rates.

Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were go- ing from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn’t want to work; there simply weren’t any jobs.

“My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people – about 30 daily.’

“We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933.” she recalls. “We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living.

Austrian girls welcome Hitler

“Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group – Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone in Germany was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria. We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back.

“Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.

“We were overjoyed,” remembers Kitty, “and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and
everyone was fed.

Austrians saluting

“After the election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.

“Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn’t support his family. Many women in the teach- ing profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been re- quired to give up for marriage.

“Then we lost religious education for kids

Poster promoting "Hitler Youth"

“Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school.. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler’s picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn’t pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang ‘Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles,’ and had physical education.

“Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail.”
And then things got worse.

“The first two hours consisted of political indoctrination. The rest of the day we had sports. As time went along, we loved it. Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment free.

“We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful time we had.

“My mother was very unhappy,” remembers Kitty. “When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent. I told her she couldn’t do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun – no sports, and no political indoctrination.

“I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing.

A pro-Hitler rally

“Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time, unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler.

“It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn’t exposed to that kind of hu- manistic philosophy.

“In 1939, the war started and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn’t work, you didn’t get a ration card, and if you didn’t have a card, you starved to death.

“Women who stayed home to raise their families didn’t have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men.

“Soon after this, the draft was implemented.

Young Austrians

“It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps,” remembers Kitty. “During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their barracks for military training just like the boys.

“They were trained to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps. After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines.
“When I go back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat.
“Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.

“When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately es- tablished child care centers.
“You could take your children ages four weeks old to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, seven days a week, under the total care of the government.

“The state raised a whole generation of children. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights. We knew we had been had.

“Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna..
“After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything.

“When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full.

“If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the med- ical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.

“As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80 percent of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families.

“All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.

“We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables.
“ Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because peo- ple might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn’t meet all the demands.

“Soon, he went out of business. If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.

“We had consumer protection, too

Austrian kids loyal to Hitler

“We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count the live-stock, and then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.

“In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps. The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated.

“So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good man- ual work.

“I knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van.

“I asked my superior where they were going. She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months.

“They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.

“As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia.

“Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long afterwards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.

“No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.

“Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.”

“This is my eye-witness account.

“It’s true. Those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity.

“America is truly is the greatest country in the world. “Don’t let freedom slip away.

“After America, there is no place to go.”

Kitty Werthmann

Ms. Rice, Please....PLEASE Run for President!

Ms. Rice, Please...PLEASE Run for President!

We would support this woman as President over any white liberal. And if you would not, what would that make you? Liberals say that if we don't support President Obama it is because we are "racists". So then if you won't support a black woman over any white liberal for president, then doesn't that make you a racist and also a sexist?

Click "LIKE" if you would support Condoleeza Rice as President of the United States over any white liberal candidate.

Positively CRIMINAL!

Positively CRIMINAL!

The following is a post I made to Sen. Dianne Feinstein's Facebook page.

"In the basically honorable quest for a safer America, it is highly disconcerting to me that gun bans are the only things that ever get proposed. I believe we should also curtail the bloodcurdling violence in films and video products which, especially in the latter case, desensitize people to the value of human life before they're even 10 years old.

You can blame and demonize (and apparently advocate the mass murder as well) of gun owners for thwarting previous legislative efforts against them. But what about the actual demand for, and popularity of, these weapons --- what Liberals keep calling America's "gun culture"?

Listen friends, that's Hollywood's and game-makers' doing, not the NRA or any other gun group. Maybe there are some things at gun stores or shows that we could do without, I'll give you that. But to blame gun owners for the ongoing glorification of firearms' illegal use and the violent snuffing of human lives in film and other media ---much of it geared specifically to young people , is positively criminal."  js

Maybe the Theories Are RIGHT

Maybe the Theories are Right

One of the traits that Liberals assign to the rest of us, as they routinely and joyously call for our  extermination, is that we are chronic conspiracy theorists.

Well kindly check this out , and then tell me why we shouldn't be.

and if this doesn't make you realize that all these shootings are a government conspiracy to take your guns away, you're a fool.
