When The “Democratic” Process Isn’t Quite What You Thought It Was

The majority of the people of the United States operate every day believing that they are the “We the People” as was used in the United States Constitution. The U.S. is a corporation. The Corporation drafted a constitution. Throughout our lives, we are taught that the Constitution was written for us and thus must be followed to the letter…for us. Sorry!

In essence, we are allowed to participate in the activities of the Corporation as it may benefit the Corporation. What is difficult to follow and understand is that there must be some sort of control over the masses in order for the Corporation to pull this off. Part of that control involves leading the masses to believe they are fully protected by the Constitution of the Corporation unless otherwise authorized by the Corporation.

As part of a “united” corporation, the “several” states signed on as co-conspirators to the United States Corporation. This is why many states copied the major Corporation’s Constitution.

If you’ve followed this concept in its brevity, it might be easier to understand that the processes used to control the masses, i.e. not inciting them to anger with too much revelation of the truth of their existence as subject-slaves to the Corporation, aren’t what we might think they are.

The forces at work within the corporations much work to accomplish their goals, for their purposes and not necessarily for yours and mine. Some might ask why these forces don’t simply make us do what they say? The answer is you might balk at that notion and resist. Somewhat resembling the slow-boiling frog analogy, a little taken away here and a little there and the Corporations get what they want, and the subject-slaves still think they are “We the People.” (Insert a big WINK-WINK here)

An example of what I am trying to describe here can be found in Maine. It seems that the majority party of the Maine House (it doesn’t really matter which party) blocked a common process of sending a proposed bill to a committee which would also involve a public hearing.

This is not the first time this action has taken place but it is not a common practice. As I understand the Maine Constitution, it is not required that a bill is sent to committee for debate and public hearing. It appears that when the public hearing process is bypassed, it involves controversial bills, as does the bill in question. (It is funded by George Soros)

For this discussion, it is not about the content of the bill. It’s about the “democratic” process or better yet, that process we think the Constitution guarantees us. When “We the People” want what they want, “we the people” get short-changed. It’s all part of the rigged system.

What makes this rigged system work are the useful idiots who believe in a man-created corrupt government system that they think was created for them. Even in their anger at recognizing that information in proposed new laws can easily be hidden from us citizen-slaves and be thought of as “unconstitutional,” we, in our insanity, continue to think that if we just work within the rigged system we can change the rigged system.

Many believe their power lies in the voting process. “We need to vote these people out and vote in new blood,” we are repeatedly told. That would be fine except the only choices you get to vote for come from the Party and not the people. Or the People and not the people. It’s a farce and we fall for it.

I guess the only good thing that comes out of this process is that it can slow down the total process of bringing about complete national socialism and/or communist rule.

AND YOU DON’T WANT TO EVEN DISCUSS THE REALITIES OR THE POSSIBILITIES which is why I often end my pieces designed for generating thought with:

BUT DON’T GO LOOK!

Thoughts on Super Bowl LII and Football in General

Having completed a season of professional football, watching several games throughout, culminating with the Super Bowl, for what it’s worth I would like to share some thoughts – some of which are probably not so nice.

As to the Super Bowl, it was good ENTERTAINMENT, aside from officials’ calls that are sure to always stir up the ire of any dedicated fan. It cannot be denied, even to the point where announcers and commentators express their frustration, that there is no consistency in the rules and video review is a joke, a farce and a great opportunity for someone to make gobs of money, as was on display when a receiver, according to some reviews throughout the season, never had control of a caught pass and even if he had, he stepped out of bounds. The outcome, “the call on the field stands!”

Quarterbacks are sissies! When they decide to run with the ball, or as should be determined, they leave the “pocket,” a defender in helpless to do much of anything but chase the quarterback and hope that he “slides” before he gets his head torn off. As Terry Bradshaw, a former NFL quarterback once said, “Let’s put dresses on them.”

There is no consistency in what is considered a catch, possession, a fumble or where to spot the ball when going out of bounds or crossing the goal line. If a runners foot touches the out of bounds, that is where the ball is spotted, regardless of where the ball was. In crossing the goal line, all that is necessary is for the ball to “break the plane.”

If you are a runner, a defensive player can crash his helmet into your helmet, sending the player to the locker room or hospital, as happened with a Patriots player early in the game, and that is considered “a clean hit.” However, if you are a receiver and have not established yourself as a “runner” (meaning the act of catching the ball is completed, whenever that it) you can’t lead with the crown of the helmet nor can you “launch” yourself at the receiver. As a defender you are to guess when you think an official might interpret when the received completed the act of “catching” and commenced the act of a “runner.”

If you are a defender, you cannot touch the quarterback in the head, and you cannot even inadvertently touch the offensive player’s face mask. However, a ball carrier can smash a would-be tackler in the head and even the facemask and that is good football.

Instant replay ruins the game. Some want to believe that it limits the number of bad calls by referees. Here’s what has happened. Referees have become morons on the field. With no incentive to call a good game, nose picking and posing for the camera is commonplace because there’s always Instant Replay to straighten them out. Consider what stopping the game because some ref was thinking about what he was going to have for supper and missed a call does. Not only does it lengthen an already lengthy game, bombarded with commercials, but stops the flow of the game.

However, even with Instant Replay interpretation of what took place remains in the control of officials. For that reason only, Instant Replay should be banned. Why have it? If all plays are going to be determined by a third party, isn’t it better to keep the responsibility of the game on the field of play? Who else in their professions gets a free pass because they screwed up?

Those are just some of the ridiculous issues of the new NFL, played mostly by overpaid sissy-whiners.

Now the rest of the entertainment part of the industry. Super Bowl LII was over-wrought with endless commercials that can cause a viewer over the age of sixty to get disgusted enough to turn the TV off. The game was lengthened no less than 30 minutes so that corporations could bilk a drug and alcohol-infested viewing public.

Listening to the announcers calling the game has become as nauseous as listening to newspeak television. Obviously, they don’t watch the game I do, and they blather on as though they thought somebody cared what they had to say. Chris Collingsworth last night was a good example of a moron with a microphone. Taking a deep breath, he would carry on about something or someone, pause for a second, take another deep breath and contradict what he just said. It amazes me that now these “color commentators” know exactly what each player and coach is thinking at any given moment in time.

As bad as Collingsworth was, nothing can even come close to the nonsense of discarded NFL quarterback Tony Romo. He was so terrible, dominating the airwaves, cutting off the play by play guy, regurgitating old football cliches and making no effort to cover up his biases, after his first game doing color, if the world was unfortunate enough to get him for the next game you wanted to watch, I wonder how many viewers were forced to do what I did – mute the sound?

And NFL can’t understand why attendance and viewership are down? If the NFL is going to allow personal protests, before, during and after a game, maybe there’s money in it for them if they contract some radical political groups to run organized protests before, during, and after a game. Then we’ll see what happens.

The NFL has some very serious issues that need to be addressed if they want to continue making their billions of dollars in order to pay the performers their inflated salaries.

Amending the Endangered Species Act of 1973 with Amendments

There has always been talk of amending the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (with amendments)(ESA). But nothing ever happens. Perhaps the closest to at least getting something changed within the ESA came in the early 2000s when a handful of political candidates thought they could promote their political ambitions by supporting the amending of the ESA. Bringing some senior politicians into the mix showed hopeful signs that something was about to break in this regard until a group of back-stabbing Democrat sportsmen, driven by political and personal gain, bankrolled the Senate reelection of Dirty Harry Reid from Nevada. Part of the midnight madness of political wrangling involved a destruction of efforts to amend the ESA.

And so it goes. It took a few years but eventually, I learned just how crooked and rigged the political system is. Efforts to work within a rigged system to fix a rigged system are akin to fighting a fire with a bucket that has no bottom. Some learn, most don’t.

However, not to disappoint some of my readers, I have taken the time to thoughtfully produce a proposal to amend the ESA. Below is that proposal. I just need someone to find a sponsor.

A Bill to Amend the Endangered Species Act of 1973

Senator: Any corrupt bastard will do

Representative: Any corrupt bastard will do

The Endangered Species Act of 1973 (further referred to as the Act) is outdated and ineffective. Originally the Act was established as a tool and guideline to establish worthwhile information to assist in the prevention of allowing plant and animal species to go extinct unnecessarily while at the same time not to be contrary to the will of the people or to place an individual, or group of individuals, including private landowners, in any kind of unreasonable and difficult position. This simple purpose has become corrupt while at the same time has never proven itself as being at effective.

Therefore:

BE IT ENACTED, by the Senate and the House of Representatives of the United States of America (a corporation established by We the People, not we the people) in Congress Assembled, that:

The Endangered Species Act of 1973 with amendments is hereby declared repealed. In addition, there shall be no attempt by the Senate and/or the House of Representatives, to reestablish this law or any law related to the establishment of governmental control over so-called endangered species.

Christmas: A Battleground – The Wrestling Against Powers and Principalities

I have often shared on this website Ephesians 6:12 from the Holy Scriptures: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, and against the worldly governors, the princes of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness, which are in the high places.” The celebration and recognition of the Christmas “halig“day is perhaps the epitome of the battle between “principalities, against powers, and against worldly governors, the princes of the darkness of the world, against spiritual wickedness” and Goodness, i.e. the fulfillment of our Creator’s Spirit of Truth that, by our own choice, lives within us. Because our Creator God made us of the capacity to choose, it is our choice to be filled with His Spirit, however, the power of that Spirit is what “naturally” causes us to know the difference between wrong and right, with the exception of “strong delusion.”

Since the beginning of time there has existed the evil powers, by Heavenly Father’s choice, that work relentlessly to antithesize all things of the only Creator.

Bible scholars, and anyone who “studies to show themselves approved unto God,” know that our Savior (Yeshuwah) was not born in December and thus could not have been born on the 25th. It is believed that the Emperor Constantine, wrongly accepting of the myth by most in this world to be the first “Christian” world leader, first recognized the birth of the Savior Child on December 25th, a deliberate act of anti-Christ. Soon thereafter, the Vatican took over the bastardization of the birth of our Savior and thus turned it into the Pagan “halig”day it is today.

Try as they may to destroy all things Yeshuwah, to distort and mislead, the powers and principalities at work cannot destroy Yehwah’s Spirit of Truth.

Yes, the celebration of Christmas is a Pagan event, complete with the fabrication of “Satan” Claus, with a made up story about presents and the like wrongly attempting to meld Satan Claus and Yeshuwah into a share existence, but try as the evil may evil cannot break the power of Yeshuwah and the Spirit of Truth. Among all the worldly and Pagan symbols of this “halig”day, there still can be found moments of love and tenderness, an overlooking of the nastiness that often controls our lives, complete with a genuine seeking of Peace on Earth and Goodwill To All Men.

The Powers and Principalities do recognize that their mere efforts at Paganizing a government-recognized “halig”day, an event fabricated by Constantine to falsely placate the “Christians” of the day, that actually began the modern day practice of universal religion, i.e. Paganism, but this effort needs to be constantly reinforced to ensure that real Christians throughout the world not only prop up the holy Roman Empire’s bastardization of Christ but also to totally destroy any kind of recognition of the event of a Savior of the world being born for the redemption of our sins. This is why we see constant efforts at erasing even the name Christmas from the “halig”day.

Despite this effort, Richard Fernandez this morning writes: The effort to erase Christmas will probably fail for no other reason than that it meets a human need that a mechanical bureaucratic day off cannot fulfill.  Humanity needs a time to mark the growth and change in the family, an occasion to renew hopes and put aside fears and a chance to remember something we once knew: that everything’s going to be alright in the end.  It really will.”

The effort to erase Christmas will fail if for no other reason than this war between Powers will ultimately be won by the one and only True God who created all things and never breaks a promise. Many people may suffer cognitive dissonance, never realizing what is going on as they struggle to live in two opposing existences, but the power of Yehwah’s Spirit of Truth will forever show the good the differences between good and evil and as such, somewhere inside them, will seek Truth, Understanding, Peace on Earth and goodwill to all men everywhere in the World.

My prayer this day is that all will call upon that Spirit of Truth for that is the ONLY source of those things most of us seek and struggle to find.

May you receive the blessings of Yehwah!

Maine’s Most Quiet Deer Hunting Season

Is there really a deer hunting season going on in Maine? As the old Maine saying goes, “Hahd tellin not knowin!”

I finished up my week at Hunting Camp in the usual fashion of seeing nothing. In addition, of the six of us spending the week in the woods, a couple of does were spotted…a couple more than in past years and so by today’s standards of ignorant bliss there’s reason to be excited that perhaps one day deer hunting will be worth the effort again.

But for those who live and hunt in areas where deer are protected (posted land, few predators, etc.), I’m a jerk for even suggesting deer hunting in Maine still mostly sucks. And, it’s going to get worse and never get better. But we’ll never know will we?

What the Environmentalists want, and will get, are protected deer, bear, moose, turkeys…any animal. Along with it they will get what every unmanaged ecosystem gets – death, disease and destruction, which is heavily denied by nearly everyone these days.

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW), in their quest to turn their department into one that more resembles all the other Environmentalists propaganda sites, leaving one to wonder if the department even bothers to pay any mind to “FISH AND GAME” anymore, has not only scrubbed their website of any information about deer hunting, bear hunting, moose hunting and turkey hunting harvest stats, but evidently has given up on publishing any Hunting Reports. In addition they evidently will not offer any information on the current deer hunting season. You might be one of the fortunate mouth pieces for the department, that if you call, you can speak to someone who will provide you with the latest line of propaganda, designed to cause media automatons to believe everything is great and all hunters are happy and have already bagged their deer.

If this trend continues, Mainers will soon not even realize the state has a deer hunting season. Maybe that’s why it seems there have been more hunting “accidents” this year where the victims seemed unprepared to be in or near the woods because there was a hunting season. That supposition does not excuse the reality that a hunter must always be 100% certain of his or her target BEFORE pulling the trigger. I don’t recall the MDIFW making any public announcements to remind residence of the deer season, or the bear season, or the moose season, or the turkey season. They do let you know when it’s time to buy a license or apply for a permit. Do they realize this cash cow is going to dry up and go away? NOPE!

I guess it’s just take the money and run….for now.

So what do those paid to run the Division of Information and Education do? Certainly it isn’t to inform hunters, trappers and fishermen of how their money is being spent. Crickets is all we are getting. Now that MDIFW has no intention of releasing to the public any harvest data, I would assume, by the looks of how things have gone so far, they also have no intention of talking about the deer season at all. Perhaps all the indoctrinated biologists, thoroughly saturated with Environmentalist garbage they brought with them from the brainwashing factories, are finally getting the department they want where they can concentrate on diminishing hunting, fishing and trapping opportunities while promoting a non consumptive approach to wildlife management. Along with this, they can take the money from license fees and excise tax dollars and focus all their attention on Climate Change – it is a great excuse for doing a piss-poor job. Perhaps the department will soon offer a new page to replace the game species data information pages, showing all the bad things that they want to believe has happened due to Climate Change. There must be more money in that.

Soon, some of the environmentalist outdoor sportsmen will get their wish and funding for MDIFW will come from general taxation. Along with it, they can complete their partnership with the Environmental Establishment. Please hurry and get the name changed from Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, to Department of Natural Resources and Non Consumption Protection – MDNRNCP.

As I ponder over another bowl of track soup, once again I will have to ask myself why I bother to hunt in Maine and spend the money for a license. But then I think; isn’t that exactly what they want me to do?

Wildlife News Allows Calling Pro Predator Management Folks Anti Predator Nazi’s

“Not to beat a dead horse, but the esteemed wildlife biologist Don Peay who Predicted the extermination of Yellowstone bison by wolves, and the Julius Streicher of the anti-predator world, none other than the exaulted Mr. Rockholm, who’s recent posting of an old video predicts the bison demise, addles one’s mind with the irony of this situation.”—Immer Treue

Scott’s just hiding in his little world view just like you folks are doing… The Panhandle gang have taken off with most of the research and they think they’re superior to the rest of us and imagine they’re more influential in these matters than they actually are.. Meanwhile the federal YNP gurus are slaughtering Buffalo… Oh and the surviving Buffalo are being chased by man introduced wolves…. Oops… These Buffalo have it far worse than the Buffalo of the old times because they have restricted range, traps, and now for a few years wolves chasing them all over their restricted range.. Whatta deal for the Buffalo.. So while Scott is obviously biased and jaded in his thinking, so are you guys… Now looky there, I said all of that and never implied that any of you are Nazi’s… Putting wolves in where the prey has restricted range… Like putting the cart before the horse… Dumb Immer, totally dumb.. Scott is dumb and so are you folks.. If America has been dumbed down that means everybody, not just those guys over there… Scott like yourselves believes he was immune to the dumbing down… That be funny…

The screwy Buffalo management problem by the Federal YNP gurus is obvious.. AND the wolves are also a mankind caused problem as well which is slowly but surely eliminating Buffalo.. The Buffalo are being kept down for the very same reason as during settlement.. Limited resources availability to the enemy of the owners of the privately owned federal corporation which is hell bent upon its depopulation of direct drivers.. YOU and Me and the rest of us civilians.. Under the guise of various claims of diseases and other problems that could all be worked out into a positive for all of us and the Buffalo if only we all weren’t divided by those treating us as the enemy and by using our different cultural world views against us on how to live and let others live their own consciences.. There is no hope for any group acting as if they have the superior intellectual conscience.. NONE.. The biggest mistake is ignoring certain aspects of these philosophical problems that are all connected.. That lead us to the same front door.. The Wizard of Oz in his nifty fish head hat costume… Thats how it is.. Looking away from how it is and hanging out with others that look the other way solves nothing..

Those of you in your various stages of denial are protecting the Wizard of Oz from being yanked out from behind the curtain… You’re sitting on your fat assholes while a few people are trying to drag that Wizard out of there and expose him… For the betterment of all… You’re a pack of doubting Thomas’s sitting around your comfy fires while others endure the cold hostility of the Dragon’s glare.. Because for in simple terms using simple words, albeit harsh, you’re cowards..

It’s interesting watching a sorry coward call another sorry coward a Nazi…

“the demise of the Yellowstone bison will be because of humankind, and not the indigenous”—Ida Guru Lupine Knows nothing…

Ida’s dmbfkery always fascinates me…

Meanwhile the federal YNP gurus are slaughtering Buffalo… Oh and the surviving Buffalo are being chased by man introduced over protected wolves where those Buffalo are caught in restricted range……. Oops…

This discussion keeps devolving.. As planned..

Watching other stupid people calling other stupid people stupid…

Julius Streicher… GRIN… A powerless nobody with more historical credibility than he deserved.. That was likely the point.. Unfortunately a fitting conclusion concerning the Panhandle Gang…

Back to your divided camps over at camp divided boys and girls… Where you all need some brain management..

Gawblesmurka!

Don’t let any chance at pushing back against stupidity go to waste…

Maine Passes Bill That Unconstitutionally Targets Hunters and Fishermen

This is a tough one to address because I do not, in any way, shape or form, condone the destruction of anybody’s property, including “Posted” or “No Trespassing” signs.

LD 557, with amendments, has passed the Maine Legislature that, in summary, states: “The hunting and fishing
licenses of a person convicted of destroying, tearing down, defacing or otherwise damaging a property posting sign in violation of section 10652, subsection 1, paragraph B must be revoked, and that person is ineligible to obtain a hunting or fishing license for a period of one year from the date of conviction.”

There should be laws that protect a landowner from such destruction, and there probably are. Piling on to prove a point, while it might be a bit understandable, particularly to a frustrated land owner, cannot be justified by targeting a specific sector of the general public to punish that group for a law violation more than any other member of the public that is not part of the hunting and fishing community.

Even in testimony given in support of the law, a landowner states that he believes the majority of sign destruction comes from “hunters” shooting up his signs, but also admits destruction of his property, other than just signs, is being carried out by many different individuals and groups of individuals. Is it then constitutional to increase punishment on one group over others? I think not!

I’m not a lawyer but you don’t have to be a lawyer to understand that this law is not right. I am surprised that the Maine Legislature, the Governor, the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife and others supported this law and could not see that it violates the constitutional rights of licensed hunters and licensed fishermen.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not looking for a dismissal of lawful punishment for the willful act of property destruction, protected by Maine law. However, in order to be justified in taking away the licences of hunters and fishermen for one year, then one must ask what is the punishment for the same kind of destruction that might be carried out by a snowmobiler, an ATVer, a hiker, a berry picker, etc.?

I believe the term that might apply to such an egregious violation of due process, can be found in Supreme Court cases that involve “unconstitutional animus.” If you Google that term, you can spend hours reading about what this term is and how it affects all of us. In brief, unconstitutional animus is a violation of equal protection under the law. In this case a hunter or fisherman, is not afforded the same due process and equal protection as someone else who might commit the same crime.

As a society we have been programmed to believe that the more draconian our laws are the more of a deterrent it is to prevent the crime in the first place. Whether that is true or not, I do not have the data to show one way or another. All drivers of automobiles that violate the law by speeding, are subject to the same set of laws and punishments. Would it be considered the right thing if hunters and fishermen were targeted for greater punishment because somebody believes them to speed more than other groups or individuals? This is what this new law allows.

This bill needs to be repealed and a different, constitutional approach taken in order to protect the rights of all people to ensure equal protection under the law, due process and to stop the obvious discrimination this law allows.

Moose Socialism: More Special Interest Allotment of Moose Permits

It appears that where once there was a “lottery” to decide who gets a limited number of moose permits for the annual Maine moose hunt, it is now a process of doling out certain numbers of permits to a wide variety of special interest groups, all the while further screwing over the people and the process of “randomly” selecting recipients for a moose permit, some of whom have been waiting for decades.

Now it appears that if you are 65 years old and have accrued 30 Moose Lottery Points – another crooked process that benefits the wealthy and puts the screws to everyone else – you can automatically be awarded a moose permit when you apply. Theoretically that could use up all that is left (which isn’t much) of moose permits that haven’t already been handed out to crony, special interest groups already.

Nonresidents will, once again get the shaft, as the allotment of moose permits given to nonresidents will be cut from 10% to 8%. One would think that the extra 2% of moose permits would revert back to the general (fake) lottery, so Maine resident hunters can have a better chance to bag a moose. But, NO! Those 2% will be “sold” to hunting outfitters to “subsidize” the hunting outfitter industry – socialized moose hunting.

Another brain child of some wealthy hoarder of moose permits (also known as a crooked politician with the ability to bullshit his way through the Legislature with such perverted nonsense), proposed and it has passed, another bill that will provide kids 10 years of age to begin paying taxes to hunt moose but aren’t allowed to do so until they get old enough. The bill is typically worded with deception saying that a 10-year-old can begin “accruing points” so that when they are old enough to hunt, they think their chances of winning are going to be higher. In truth, it’s another way for the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) to make money off a golden goose that is about to go extinct.

How many times have people and groups, such as the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine, stood up to defend those brazen enough to dare claim that MDIFW and game management use game animals and their management practices to promote trophy hunting? And yet here we see an example of how, where once, after a little proper management, Maine was able to rebuild a seriously diminished moose herd to a point where it was decided that the herd could sustain a limited harvest. A lottery was devised and the process has gone to hell since that time, thanks mostly to ignorant and corrupt politicians looking to beef up their constituency as they look forward to reelection. Of course if you have been a beneficiary of the elitism and cronyism of the special interest groups, along with the subsidizing of your private enterprise, you think I’m an old spoil-sport, whiner.

Think what you will. But this is all truth. It’s a damned shame!

Those same people who are often chastised by the “hunting” community often say that all wildlife is for everyone. What a bunch of horse manure that has turned out to be. Hunters and license buyers pay the majority of the cost to “manage wildlife” so everyone can enjoy it, and generally speaking we don’t mind. Now, people like me and tens of thousands of other licensed outdoor sportsmen, are paying our share toward the system, to grow and maintain a moose herd, and the state’s socialists are seeing fit to take the rewards of that investment and doling it out to every special interest group in the state as well as helping to subsidize private businesses.

Every allotment of moose permits to any and all special interest groups and private enterprise, should be repealed immediately.

What B.S.

But Isn’t It ALL FAKE?

The Patriot Post has an article about how “nefarious,” “alarming” and “minus perspective” media reports have become concerning global warming. While the author’s information may or may not be true, does it really matter? Disputing what and how others report on “Climate Change” is a bit like the pot calling the kettle black.

The article states: “Like any policy discussion, the field of science can be easily distorted and misconstrued when it lacks proper perspective and insight.”

Great! But, so what? If the New York Times reports that, “nothing can be attributed to mere natural causes any more. It all has to be because of global warming,” and this is followed by a report that science can and is distorted along with a lack of honest perspective with no truth presented for readers, it is then “Fake News.” In the context of what is being written, one has to ask then if rebutting on “Fake News” doesn’t by default become “Fake News?”

Who knows what the proper terminology should be for what is being written. It’s all mostly a lie and worthless (to me) propaganda. I understand that media outlets have to make money and so they publish what they think will make them money. Not everyone can see it as such. Of course the Media hide behind their responsibility as journalists, blah, blah, blah. However, the short and long of it all is that it’s but mere entertainment and that’s why we read what we read. Who would actually read facts and figures?

The reader isn’t interested in discovering truth because to do so requires work. One has to dig beyond the emotional clap-trap. Nobody does that nor do they care. And, the media knows that and that’s why they entertain their readers with Fake News because THAT’S WHAT THEY WANT TO READ AND HEAR!

Consequently what we are left with is Fake News, faking out the fakers who fake news.

Guns and the Left’s Unfailing Insistence on Irrational Thought

This morning I was reading an article from a Maine Online publication about how the Legislature is going to consider a bill that would make it impossible for a convicted felon to own a muzzle-loading weapon, i.e. black powder gun. As I understand the current law, the Federal Government does not recognize a muzzle-loading gun as an official weapon. In Maine, where it is generally unlawful for a convicted felon to own even a muzzle-loading gun, he or she can make application to the State’s Commissioner of Public Safety for an exemption to that prohibition.

The argument in favor of the new proposed law, as presented by this newspaper, is a poor one and certainly exemplifies the irrational thoughts of leftist progressives. I’m not here to argue whether this law is good or bad, right or wrong, and whether or not a muzzle-loading gun is or is not a weapon. I’m here to expose the irrational thought that drives emotions when it comes to making decisions – such as the banning of guns or the making of irrational and useless laws.

This newspaper uses as the foundation of it’s argument is an event that happened in Maine 10 years ago, when a hunter, hunting with a muzzle-loading rifle, mistook his target and shot and killed a woman in the field behind her house. It was a tragic event. Maine law is very strict about the responsibility of the hunter to identify the target. Such was not the case here and it ended in unnecessary tragedy.

The hunter was not a “dangerous felon.” As a matter of fact he wasn’t even a felon. If memory serves me, the man had no criminal record and was a decent man within his community. His crime? Poor judgement and decision making. To err is human.

So, to a rational thinker, would this proposed new law, had it been in effect at the time, have prevented the death of an innocent young woman? Of course not.

However, under present law, the convicted felon can petition the Commissioner of Public Safety to allow an exemption of the state’s ban against felons owning a muzzle-loading gun. Should this felon be granted an exemption? I dunno, however, can any of us make that determination without knowing what the guidelines and requirements are that must be met before the Commissioner can permit such an exemption? Is this a clear cut case of forever banning this man from ever owning a gun? You’ll have to decide that. Forever is a long time. How long should he be punished?

The point here is that the proposed law is nonsense. It’s nonsense because it is stating in outright fashion that when the State of Maine made it’s current law allowing for exemptions, those making the law didn’t know what they were doing and that the process is flawed so that “dangerous felons” can have easy access to a gun.

Another question to ask is, how many exemptions have been granted by the Commissioner of Public Safety and how many, if there are any, of those exemptions resulted in crime committed with a muzzle-loading gun? A criminal is a criminal and criminals most often are criminals because they had total disregard of laws, such as the one being proposed.

Unless there is ample proof that the system in place is allowing for violent crimes that might have been prevented, this proposal is nothing more than Leftist piling on of totalitarian repression – emotional clap-trap.

Enough already.
