Gun Pride Month!

If a tiny segment of society can force a certain celebration on the majority, then why can’t that pro-freedom majority have a month-long celebration of liberty?

We’ve been celebrating July as Gun Pride month for years now simply because we wouldn’t have had independence without an equal force of arms to resist tyranny.  Some tiny segments of our society would like to marginalize the critical human right of self-preservation while overemphasizing themselves.

 

 

Bullet Points

No more cannon fodder? (h/t Claudio) What is the nation’s military to do?

* Wind turbines hold. up to 700 gallons of oil and hydraulic fluid and as with an internal combustion engine, these need replacing every 9 months. Maybe the greenies can figure a way to run them on canola oil?

* Brandon demands that gas stations reduce their prices at the pump. He has always been a species of DC swamp creature and he surrounded himself with those of his own ilk. “Idiot” describes him. Read more here.

* Did you ever notice how Hollywood made a thousand anti-Hitler movies, but not a single one against Lenin, Mao, or Stalin. Why is that? I wonder?

* Manufacturing plant fires (Gateway Pundit) are happening worldwide. The baseline for these fires (by number) in previous years is much lower. More factory fires occurred in 2021 than any year in recorded history.

Nearly a quarter of the supply chain disruptions globally were attributed to manufacturing plants being set aflame, according to exclusive data compiled from Resilinc’s EventWatch monitoring database.

“Resilinc issued 1,946 Factory Fire alerts in 2021, an increase of 129 percent year-over year,” Resilinc communications director Melissa Gieringer said in a statement issued to the Gateway Pundit.

* “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, and his cupidity may be satiated at some point, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”

  1. You were able to keep up a frenetic posting schedule while hosting your family over the holiday weekend. Do you ever rest? Thanks for keeping us informed!

    • Do I ever rest? I don’t need a lot of sleep and should I need to sleep, I’ve trained myself to go to sleep almost immediately. The blog is something that I am committed to doing and sometimes I do them a day in advance. This part of the family left, another daughter will be here soon with her husband and 3 boys. They want to do the Salt River Float, go shooting, etc.

  2. Big Wind works hard to hide their dirty energy secrets. It is nothing more than a Big Pharma Covid Vax style grift. I think the Forest Service should pay me to take down dead trees on my property, then pay me to plant new ones, then pay me for using the produced biomass energy (same concept). Maybe instead of canola they could use patchouli….that’d help warn the raptors away from getting shredded from massive spinning blades.

    GPM – Definitely. THIS sums up much of what we now see out in the open:

    “Some tiny segments of our society would like to marginalize the critical human right of self-preservation while overemphasizing themselves.”

    C.S. Lewis nails it with fervor. The robber barons of our day are in DC and many statehouses, been there a while and will require a hacksaw to remove the infestation. How do we excise them when so many in the General Public are brainwashed into supporting their captors?

    If this continues down the current track they will force a civil war response…which I think; a) they want, or b) don’t think we’ll do. Maybe paint the AR camo colors…wouldn’t that make it “green” and therefore acceptable?

    • Yes, all of that. I’m off on a pawn shop gun run today to celebrate Gun Pride Month. Who knows what I’ll find?

      • Just finished Hunter’s The Third Bullet, if they have a Thompson M1A1, buy it. Heh.

        BTW, his commentary at the end makes me rethink his “theory” as plausible, LHO was doofus, and I never thought he made the shot.

  3. 700-gallons of oil. The greenies don’t even have a suspicion where lubrication comes from. On I-35 south of Wichita, west side of the turnpike there’s a wind farm that have several nacelles with oil stains all down the pylons. Takes a lot of oil to make that kinda mess. Evidently, like the Eskimo in the old joke, that design of generator is prone to blow a few seals. I keep hoping to see one on fire someday, but so far, only disappointment.

  4. Who would want to be in today’s military?
    Woke doesn’t feel the need to defend liberty. The leave that for the “white privilege ” types.

    I like Gun Pride MONTH.

    Have fun with the family. You allbe safe and God bless.

    • LindaG, I wouldn’t want to serve in today’s military and they wouldn’t want me either. I’m not woke and don’t tolerate it well. There are zampolits (political officers) assigned to “high testosterone” units that are there to snitch should you use an improper pronoun. In my era, there would be a lot of suicides among those cadre. Today, the guys are just getting out. Most are becoming private contractor types.

  5. There are areas of central Washington state that are covered in wind farms. A blight on the landscape that will be a monument to environmental stupidity for decades to come.

    I didn’t know July was gun pride month. Thanks for the information. Does that mean I should wear the barbecue gun in the fancy holster?

  6. “Hollywood made a thousand anti-Hitler movies, but not a single one against Lenin, Mao, or Stalin.”

    There is a dynamic tension within Hollywood regarding Hitler in particular and Nazis in general. On the one hand, it’s important to portray them (“AH+N”) as the most evil, diabolical, and resourceful villains to ever walk the earth. How else to explain how they were able to ruthlessly exterminate millions? And not in fighting enemy combatants able to shoot back, but as an “industrial” process on disarmed, helpless and innocent prisoners. On the other hand, over 70 years after the events, Hollywood now has the urge to portray AH+N as buffoons, mere wicked fools to be mocked (e.g. Jojo Rabbit) because even they are tired of the victimhood narratives and want not only to see themselves as heroes, but for the world to see them as heroes. It’s a difficult balance.

    As to why no (or few) movies exposing Mao, Lenin, Stalin, etc. One theory is that of the competing narrative. I quote from that font of all human knowledge and truth, Wikipedia. This is the May 29, 2021 version of the article on the Holodomor.

    According to Elazar Barkan, Elizabeth A. Cole and Kai Struve, there is a competition among victims in constructing an “Ukrainian Holocaust”. They note that since the 1990s the term Holodomor has been adopted by anti-Communists due to its similarity to Holocaust in an attempt to promote the narrative that the Communists killed 10 million Ukrainians while the Nazis only killed 6 million Jews. They further note that the term Holodomor was “introduced and popularized by the Ukrainian diaspora in North America before Ukraine became independent” and that “the term ‘Holocaust’ is not explained at all.” This has been used to create a “victimized national narrative” and “compete with the Jewish narrative in order to obscure the ‘dark sides’ of Ukraine’s national history and to counter accusations that their fathers collaborated with the Germans.”

    Interestingly, part of that has been scrubbed from the page, and other bits altered and moved around. The page now reads (July 06, 2022):
    According to Elazar Barkan, Elizabeth A. Cole, and Kai Struve, Holodomor has been described as a “Ukrainian Holocaust”. They state that since the 1990s the term Holodomor has been widely adopted by anti-communists in order to draw parallels to the Holocaust, who use it to say that the Soviet Communists killed 10 million Ukrainians, while the Nazis killed 6 million Jews. This interpretation has been criticised by some as the Holocaust killed other targeted ethnic groups alongside Jews, bringing the death toll to around 11 million.[42] Barkan et al. state that the term Holodomor was “introduced and popularized by the Ukrainian diaspora in North America before Ukraine became independent” and that the term ‘Holocaust’ in reference to the famine “is not explained at all.”

    There are several changes, which you can ferret out yourself, but I’d emphasize the removal of the words “only” and “compete” from the archived version. I have no idea who Barkan, Cole, and Struve are, (but I’m sure anyone interested can look them up) and I neither endorse nor reject their theories and commentary.

    • They don’t want to fight any enemy militaries, they just want to use them against the populace here at home. While I expect the former citizenry won;t roll over as easily as Our Betters think, the relative lack of armor, airpower, artillery and heavy weapons among the people will give even an ill-trained, low-morale military significant advantages.

      -Kle.
