Some More To Think About

No, we haven’t developed any kind of symbiosis with Bill Maher, trust me on this one, despite a previous post in which the man expressed opinions regarding Muslims and terrorism that tended to agree with our own take on the subject.

However, here, he does bring up a point that pretty much jibes with the subject of my last post, involving, though from a different and more “direct” perspective, our liberty.

Again, the “what if…?” idea as far as an overly oppressive, liberty smothering government coming into power (gradually, of course) is concerned.

The Boston Police pics and some of Maher’s observations are indeed worrisome, especially to a guy like me who has served our nation in a more covert role at one time and another in countries where these scenes are the norm.

Also, the fusillade of gunfire that was directed at the brother who was allegedly simply laying down in the boat was patently ridiculous, especially if the goal should, indeed, have been to take the man alive.

No, no, don’t say the police fired that kind of a barrage to ensure their own safety from the a–hole possibly returning fire. Maher brought up a good point about that, about “contagious fire” versus the fact that the police involved should have had training.

Jeez, they should have, given the kind of weapons they’re entrusted with.

Wolf, myself or any of our old team mates would have had the guy alive and with less than a fraction of the noise or the destruction that occurred in that instance.

Visiting New York at the moment, I have actually seen squads of NYPD’s finest going around in full combat gear, toting assault weapons. Passing through Grand Central Station, I saw that there’s a sidearm equipped National Guard contingent on duty there.


Placebo! Neither the cops or the ‘Guard element accomplishes a damn thing in the way of protecting the people, they’re merely there, as has been said here before, to get the public accustomed to seeing a heavily armed, uniformed presence among us.

We are, as someone once said we had a choice in the matter thereof, opting for a decrease in our liberty as a trade for our security, even though the trade we’re making gains us no more security than we’d have without it!

From Bill Maher, of all people!

Unbelievable coming from Bill Maher, but
completely believable in his argument! I never thought I would see that avowed lefty getting something like this right.

Watch this…

I can’t believe I actually have a reason to say this, but… Right On, Maher!

Telling It Like It Is

This video, featuring NRA commentator Colion Noir, is right to the point and 100% spot-on….

This one is good, before Wayne LaPierre’s appearance, they give fast video clips of various lefties (the usual suspects) calling him crazy and making other, more extreme statements about a man whose life is dedicated to preserving our rights under the Second Amendment, then the NRA’s CEO/Executive Vice President comes out to the podium and gives an excellent, spot-on speech.

Rand Paul is looking better and better!

This video from Conservative Videos speaks for itself, and boy, does it ever!

Here’s a politician who is not afraid to espouse conservative values, who has a quiet yet in-your-face manner when addressing Obama Administration leftists and who’s sounding more and more like a viable 2016 presidential candidate. We really must watch him closely.

More Renaissance

After watching (and of course listening to this one), I can understand why Renaissance, though disbanded years ago, has long been at the top of Seth’s list of favorite groups.

I found this one on You Tube, and between the composition, musicianship and the great Annie Haslam’s vocals (and use of her voice, also, as an instrument with the keyboards, drums and strings during instrumentals), I can understand why Seth went to so many of their concerts, they are divine. This one is quality enough to take to full screen, also.
