Why don’t they address the real issue? Which is typically anger motivated, and/or ego driven Violence! What’s the underlying cause? Can it be blamed on lack of employment, loss of community centers and programs, police and sheriff departments budget cuts, gang task forces severely understaffed, an influx of black market weapons flooding urban streets into criminal hands? Let’s get to the real issue, you can take the guns away from the people, but you can’t take away the motivating factor for the assault against another person with out the proper foundation laid out. Taking the guns from the law-abiding, registered users, who are just as much a target when out and about in public still does not get to the underlying cause.
I also don’t believe that more community service centers really address the problem either, I mentioned those because so many want to use that reasoning for ‘getting the gangs off the streets’. I’ll tell you there was a time when urban neighborhoods tried that tactic and for a little while it seemed to help but mainly it was more of a refuge for the youngsters that were looking for refuge from the streets. Then the gangs decided to take over the centers, they flooded the basketball courts, and game rooms. They brought their violent ways with them. Some community centers actually became places for gang recruitment and selling drugs. Chattanooga TN is seeing this problem in some of their area’s recreational centers.
The city’s recreation centers may be acting as recruitment centers for local gang members, according to some concerned residents who participated Wednesday in a discussion hosted by the city’s Neighborhood Services and Community Development Department.
Chicago and other cities nationwide have seen this problem, this is an older report but it’s still an issue today. This 1998 article highlights the many neighborhoods within and around the City of Chicago and their good intentions to offer recreation for youths and keep them out of harms way, actually putting them into the line of fire:
The hooded, masked man waited until 9:30 p.m. before stepping in front of the Elgin Recreation Center, a building that normally serves as a safe haven for children as well as gang members.
Without a word, he raised a handgun and fired three shots at the building, leaving the six people inside stunned and shaken.
No one was hurt in the Feb. 5 attack. But the bullet hole that remains in the glass door is a grim reminder that what once was considered a neutral, gang-free sanctuary may be no longer.
As many of you know the City of Chicago was the nations favorite whipping city about crime and murder numbers, even though other cities are right behind Chicago in murder toll numbers. Why Chicago then? Perhaps because the liberal media loves to use the easiest target to use to pander to the one they want to impress the most. Chicago was easy because let’s face it, strict gun controls, gangs out number the police forces assigned to gang violence, and 80 years of liberal political rule has helped set-up that city for its current status as one of the most dangerous cities to be in, especially in specific urban neighborhoods. Just this past summer, police Superintendent Garry McCarthy stated:
while murders and shootings are up, overall crime citywide is down about 9 percent. He says crime-fighting strategies against gangs — some just put into place this year — are working, but they take time.
“The city didn’t get in this shape overnight,” he says. “I think that we’re doing ourselves a disservice by advertising a Vietnam-type body count. I’ve got to tell you when I speak to people … they generally say, ‘You know what? We don’t even hear that anymore. It’s white noise.’… The fascination unfortunately seems to be in the media and it’s become a national obsession.”

Even Obama as mentioned in the above article used his home cities violence as a campaign platform and then again during his speech about the Newtown tragedy. Yet his only solution is to enact stricter gun control? Chicago has always had the strictest gun control laws in the Nation, so that doesn’t seem to be the right solution when you look at the root of murders and violence! May not all be gang related, but there is a start, because we know with gangs, drugs are right there in the mix!
A good friend of mine socially that is a fearless, tireless advocate conservative and goes by the name ”Cap Black”, Nadra Enzi has stated:
“Socialists convince many able Americans that government should monopolize use of force, even where law recognizes our natural right of self-defense. Incrementally, they’ve limited corporal punishment; demonized gun advocacy and every generation plot to disarm law-abiding citizens, at the cost of truly public safety. Ironically, liberal elected officials, including this president, have legions of armed police and service personnel for their personal protection. Average Americans have police and military service personnel protecting them too — just not personally. They protect us collectively and thus aren’t responsible for our individual survival.”
That’s right! The police’s job is to “serve and protect” but not personal private protection, they can’t be everywhere, with everyone at once, and normally their protection is brought about as a cause for service. So think about it, the service call is usually a crime in action or about to begin, by the time they arrive upon the scene, protection may be too late. Liberals/Socialist love to argue that they still don’t see a need for guns on the streets, and I surely don’t wish anyone ill harm ever, but I bet you if something that threaten their personal safety or cause them bodily harm they are probably the same ones that will be out looking to buy a gun, beg a special permit, or anything to protect thy self! I would like to also know, how are you going to stop the guns from reaching the criminal’s hands? It’s a quick fix to go after the law-abiding registered, FOID card gun owners and take their weapons away or for the point of argument, bind their finger’s that pull the trigger! Easier to punish the innocent because they know darn well there would be all kinds of cries of foul and racism if they did door to door searches of homes that “allegedly house “suspected” members of criminal involvement. Then the liberals would scream profiling, illegal search and seizure, racism, invasion of personal freedom, etc, etc… Not to mention who has the funds and budget for such actions?
So that is why Conservative, Libertarian, Tea Party, and yes even some Democrats are stating exactly what Nadra points out when he reminds us that,
Personal safety is just that, a personal responsibility. Within federal; state and local guidelines, responsible Americans arm themselves, not in preparation for their best ‘ OK Corral ‘ imitation. We arm ourselves to keep the precious peace until relieved by law enforcement in rare instances when words aren’t enough. Allowing socialists to reload conditioned helplessness as now meaning literal helpless means the communist conquest of America is complete. Those believing otherwise had better be vigilant because the Second Amendment is in real danger. And so is everything we hold dear!
Finally to highlight why there is so much hypocrisy regarding the right to defend your self and nation as bestowed upon citizens of the United States of America by the Second Amendment to the Constitution. My friend E. T. Williams has a message for that, as only the “Dr. of Common Sense” can! I agree with all he states in this video from his YouTube Channel and through personal discussion and permission from E.T. to link within my blog. I felt this right here was perfect (E.T. offered to do a video specific for this blog, but I chose this one), for show how they know the gun laws imposed upon others can hinder and jeopardize them too with its illegal and dangerous restrictions, so now you want to have armored protection for life?
Just to finish enforcing what E.T. Williams was saying about hypocrisy…How many of you remember this?
Barack Obama in 2008 made this promise to his supporters.
“I believe in the Second Amendment. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away… So if you want to find an excuse not to vote for me, don’t use that one because it just ain’t true.”
There you have it from THREE Black FREEDOM loving Americans in collaboration, and regardless of race, ethnicity, creed, we need to make sure our legislators know we won’t tolerate the blatant disregard of our voices, oppression and suppression by federal government tyrannical suppression of our Constitutional rights!

People are asking me what my thoughts are on the 2012 Presidential Election. Well here they are!
Am I disappointed that Romney didn’t win, YES!
Am I angry, YES!
Did I think that the people have more common sense than this, YES!!
Will my world stop because Obama won, NO!
Will it change the way I feel about the Democrat Party, NO!
Will it change the way I feel about Obama, HELL NO!!!
I do not understand why the Obama folks are so happy with the results of this election. The re-election of Obama only means: More Unemployment, more people on Welfare, more taxes for EVERYONE (not just the rich), higher food and gas prices, and much rougher times ahead!! If you think you have a hard time getting in to see a doctor now……just wait…..You haven’t seen anything yet!!! This is not an actual victory for Obama this is going to be the biggest burden Obama has ever had! He has squeaked out a second term so now his legacy is on the line.
The one good thing about this is Democrats will no longer be able to blame President Bush. Resident Obama is inheriting his own mess this time around. His followers are going to be looking to him to fulfill all of his promises and if he doesn’t……..well, they may start looking for a new Political Party. We already had many cross over this election, we will have a lot more the next time around if we play our cards right.
Just wait until the majority of their Democrat Constituents’ can’t pay for their basic necessities like their rent, mortgage, electric, water, and gas. Forget about a free Obama phone, they won’t need one if they don’t have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of. I don’t know whether to laugh at them or feel sorry for them anymore. What I do know is, is that it is a sad day for our Country as a whole when over half of the American population is ignorant, more worried about what they can get for free, and voting on skin color and not on facts and numbers.
My fellow Conservative friends do not get discouraged! As all Christians know, faith is often tested, and our faith is truly being tested now. Sometimes it takes hitting rock bottom in order to come back bigger and stronger! I don’t look at this as a defeat; I look at this as a time to work harder!! We still have a lot of work to do!
The Democrat Party is working hard to keep a toe hold on the Minority, the Poor, the Un-Educated, and the Gay Vote. We, as Conservatives, must work harder to get better at reaching these people. The Democrat Party are true champions when it comes to pulling the wool over people’s eyes. They spoon feed lies and falsehoods to their followers who often are “born” into their Party. They are able to get their followers to believe that they were the champions of Civil Rights Movement and that the Conservatives and Republican Party are racists. They even displayed these falsehoods on their website (which they have since whitewashed) which can be viewed here:
The Democrat Party is in our schools, recruiting at earlier ages now. They are not just targeting College Students they are targeting our youth with their Liberal propaganda and lies. Many students are picked on and given bad grades due to Conservative views and it simply isn’t right. The school system being able to hand out Birth Control and the Day-After pill without parental consent is absolutely appalling. Teaching masturbation, sexual acts, homosexuality and all other things that are not basic health education is the PARENTS job not the teachers in our schools. We as Conservatives must stand up and put a stop to this. We must ensure our children are growing up smart with a good education and at the same time keep the Liberal propaganda out. We can start to fix this by holding Teachers, Principles, School Boards, and Teachers Unions accountable.
One of the biggest problems we have to face and correct is the breakdown of Family Values and Morals in this Country. If we are to get our Country back, we must tackle this morality problem we have going on. Kids thinking it’s ok to be having sex as early as 13, kids, having kids, kids thinking it’s the in-thing to be gay or bi-sexual, the promotion of drug usage, the idea of drug dealing and gang-banging being thought of as employment, abortion being used as a form of birth control, the idea that you shouldn’t have to work hard, the idea that you are owed something, the idea that you are special because of your skin color; all of these things and more are ruining this Country!!! It’s called the Promotion of Mediocrity and its killing this Country folks!!! The biggest black eye is we let it happen!!! We must go back to basics. We must go back to being good moral people!!!
Democrats have seem to forgotten that the Conservatives are doing better than the majority of their Democrat Constituents. We may not all be rich, but we are for the most part, better off because we work hard, make smart decisions, and seem to have better heads on our shoulders when it comes to spending. When the sh*t hits the fan, and it will, it will be the Democrats crying and begging in the streets and the Conservatives left standing in the ashes. The majority of Conservatives have been prepared for the worst for a while now. We Conservatives may have to tighten our belts and pinch our pennies, but we will survive.
As it stands right now, the majority of the Democrat Constituents’ are living off of a lot of hope and a lot of change. The way they whine and complain, they don’t have a belt to tighten up or any pennies to pinch. They are all broke and hurting so we’re told. They say they’re tired of being poor and they want more stuff for free. After all that is their major complaint, right??? What do you think will happen when the economic crunch gets worse??? I think a lot of Democrats are going to be hurting more so than they are now…….
Democrats have also seemed to have forgotten that we do hold the purse strings. Our tax payer’s dollars fund their Party and free ride. They had better hope and pray that we all don’t decide to put a worldwide strike together and make things tighter for them and their followers. Democrat followers are already going to Republican Districts to get help with their bills and other help when their Democrat Districts have run out of funding. If donations were to cease, if tax dollars start to decline, or if funding were to stop……Ooooooohhh…….That could get ugly!!!
That’s what will happen when unemployment continues to rocket. That’s what will happen when businesses have to close. That’s what will happen when Obama’s Obamacare tax gets implemented. That’s what will happen when Obama starts taxing people to death. That’s what will happen when Obama keeps spending like there’s no tomorrow. That’s what will happen when Obama shut down our Coal Industry. That’s what will happen when Obama keeps bailing out Green Energy Programs that go bankrupt. That’s what will happen when you bite the hands that feed you. But…….that’s what they asked for when they sold their souls to Obama, right?????
Many of us knew that there was a chance that Obama would be re-elected. Of course we were hoping Romney would win, but we still knew that there was a chance he would not. I find it funny how you didn’t hear Conservatives threatening to riot if Obama won, as the Democrats threatened to do should Romney have won. Obviously the Conservative side is much more civil than the Democrat side.
Obama’s re-election did us no favors, as far as Foreign Policy goes. Our enemies are seeing how weak our Country has become and rejoicing as well. Thanks to Obama sending the Arab States and the Muslim Brotherhood funding, they can now rejoice on our dime and continue to kill us at the same time. Let’s just hope Obama doesn’t hand our Country over to them on a silver platter while he’s bowing to their leaders, funding them, and letting American die as he did in Benghazi.
So….all you Democrats go ahead…. Gloat…. Get it out of your systems while you can….. I don’t think your gloating and rejoicing is going to last very long at all. Meanwhile, I will press on. I’ll continue to work on educating people on the TRUTH, I’ll keep disputing the lies of Obama and the Democrat Party, and I will keep bringing people to the light!!!
Oh, and before I forget……. Congratulations on your win Obama! But…… don’t get to comfortable!! You may have won re-election and made the Conservatives job a little harder to accomplish, but you just kept my job rolling!!! I and other Conservative American Patriots like me will be there to hold you accountable whenever you and your Democrat Party slip up!!! You’re going to have to try really hard not to slip too, because now that you’ve been re-elected, you and your staff can be held accountable and you may very well get IMPEACHED this time around!!!
