The Black Heart of Men
(School’s in Session Pt.2)
Of course I had to. I had absolutely no choice in the matter. After the killings in Orlando, my government went out of its way once again to show that they are in fact the real JV team on the field of play right now. Literally, and you cannot make this crap up. The 49 bodies of those slain in the nightclub were still on the floor, their cell phones ringing from the calls of loved ones that would never get an answer, and our President was on national television blaming guns and calling for more rounds of gun control. Not that we have too many laws that are unenforced, but these guys want to make even more laws to make people feel good about something they are trying to accomplish. Sickening.
I read a quote the other day, although the author is unknown but the quote is generally attributed to German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer. It reads, “All truth passes through three stages. First it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” In the Bible, Acts 2:12-13 echoes a similar sentiment. On the day of Pentecost, the non-believers who were watching the events unfold were amazed at what they saw. The Bible says, “And they all continued in amazement and great perplexity, saying to one another, ‘What does this mean?’ But others were mocking and saying, ‘They are full of sweet wine.’” Yeah, when God moves, people are perplexed, shocked, amazed and then they lash out and mock the message. The truth folks is that most people hate the truth. As Jack Nicholson says in “A Few Good Men,” people “can’t handle the truth.” The truth can be brutal. It can be ugly. It can hurt. But in the words of Winston Churchill, one of the greatest statesmen of the 20th Century, he accurately penned, “The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.” Yup, THERE IT IS! In your face, stuck in your craw, bashing down whatever erroneous thoughts and deluded ideas and values one’s black heart may contain.
This is perhaps the biggest problem this nation faces. To what standard do we hold ourselves accountable? I think we have two unquestioned standards. First, although not for everyone, I get that, but for me the Gold Standard is the Bible. The true, unerring, undefiled and proven Word of God. I know in today’s world, that is a highly unpopular statement and belief but you know what? I – DO – NOT – CARE!! I don’t. I really don’t. It is obvious that those of us who profess the Gospel are despised for it. Jesus told us in Matthew 10:22 that this would be the case. I can live with that. The point of the matter is that we have to have some standard to judge ourselves by and a standard to guide our actions. Without that, as it says in the Proverbs 21:2, “Every man’s way is right in his own eyes.” Without a standard, men’s own ideas and concepts become nothing more than a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy. Watered down and diluted with each successive iteration. You know, people hate truth because they think they know better than God.
So what does this have to do with gun control and the shooting in Orlando? Or maybe even the shootings in San Bernardino and elsewhere? Everything. I cannot believe I have to reiterate this yet again but guns don’t kill people. People kill people. It is the sick, darkened, hate filled morass that clogs men’s hearts that makes us kill as we do. No, it is not guns. Take away guns and people will use whatever is handy. It is an increasingly corrupt society where progressive ideology continues to clog what truth really is. It is a society where 70% of all black kids are born out of wedlock. Kids having kids and not a clue on how to parent. Kids unable to teach their kids truth because it was never taught to them. My hats off to anybody who is able to navigate the minefield filled world they created for themselves and actually teach their kids respect, honor, integrity and the value of education. It is the cretins who find humor in playing sick games like the “knock out game” where they walk up to random people and punch them in the face in an attempt to knock them unconscious. Then they post it on YouTube for everyone to see. No, it is not guns. It is a society that has murdered over 59,000,000 babies since 1973 and yet it is seen as acceptable. It is the idiot kids walking around with their pants hanging down past their butt and exposing themselves to little kids. When told to pull them up, you are called a racist when in fact they have no understanding of what that word really means. You know, if you do not know what the word “racism” is, just shut up. No, it is not guns. It is a government so morally bankrupt and cowardly that they try to outlaw terms like “illegal aliens” because it is a racist term. Uhhh, go back to the previous comment on racism. Renaming them undocumented workers only hides the truth that 1) They are here illegally and 2) They are immigrants. Thus illegal immigrants. A demented government ideology that in time of war, let’s its PoWs go back to the battlefield to fight and kill again. Deal with it. No, the problems we face go way beyond guns, people.
But the sick truth is that our government does not want to address any underlying issues. To them, everything is “smoke and mirrors.” They can’t face the truth because if they do, then their single minded gun control agenda flies out the window; as well it should. We have a callous and ignorant administration that cannot “call a spade a spade.” It is as if the words “radical Islamist” will cause them to melt like the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz. But by ignoring the truth of what these people are, they are endangering the lives of all Americans.
We had no problem calling Germans “Nazis” or the Italians “fascists.” You know why? Because they were. Yet we have an administration that still refuses to properly investigate all Syrian refugees coming into America and a CIA administrator who admits that we simply CAN’T. Yet news reports hidden on the back pages tells us that over 100 per week are entering our country. We don’t know who they are. We can’t. A hidden news story also tells us Syrian refuges raped a girl in Idaho recently. Not to mention the hundreds of rapes and sexual assaults plaguing all of Western Europe today.
Yes, there is evil descending on Western Civilization and all our leaders seem to talk about is gun control. They are using these events to bolster their anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment agenda. After the Japanese attacked us at Pearl Harbor, we kicked the living %$#@ out of them. After Germany declared war on us a couple of days later, they suffered the same fate. After 9/11, we are pussyfooting around with unrealistic rules of engagement and are enjoying increased and practically unfettered immigration from those countries whose people claim they want us dead. We have schools where our children are being forced to recite passages from the Koran while being denied the right to pray to our God. We have had several mass shootings by you know who and once again, all the troglodytes in Congress and the Senate can talk about is more gun control. Not hate control or stopping those who want us dead but gun control. Yeah, law abiding Americans are the real threat here. After Orlando, I heard people blaming conservatives, Christians (wha-what) and everybody but the bad guys. Hell, our administration originally wanted to scrub the killer’s 911 call to omit any reference to ISIS, Jihad, and or anything else they deemed offensive. They even changed the killers references to “Allah” to “God.” Their argument was that they didn’t want the victims’ families to suffer. Really? Thankfully the FBI stepped up and said either you release the full transcript or we will. Hear, hear!! Moral cowardice, betrayal and treachery reigns supreme in our State Department.
Just like the Bible is the moral starting point for tens of millions in our country, any true discussion on gun control MUST START AND END with the Constitution. This brings us to our second standard; The Constitution of the United States. Every gun control argument outside and contrary to the Constitution is an abortion. Period. Go back and read the short history from Part I of this Robservation. The founders and authors were clear in their words and intent. If one reads those words and accompanying writings and still cannot figure it out, I cannot help you. Sorry. I heard one idiotic argument that said, the founders never envisioned machine guns. Do you think those men were stupid? They knew their history and they knew how weapons had evolved over the centuries and would certainly continue to evolve. They knew that the weapons they had at that time were not the end of the road. Thus they certainly did envision parity. If not, they would have said that we had the right to bear arms only with current 1780’s technology. No!! They implied, “You got these, so do we. Fights on.” With that moronic logic should we also throw out the First Amendment? Clearly the founders could not have envisioned the Internet, Twitter, Facebook, Snap Chat, television, cable news, AM/FM radio and the ability to transmit information across the planet in seconds so should we limit our freedoms of speech as well? I will tell you one thing the founders did not foresee and that is the laughable career politician. If we went back in time and told them that people would leave school, go to Washington and spend 30-50 years as a Senator or Congressperson, they would laugh us out of town. Yeah, you can bet there would be a Constitutional amendment on all political term limits.
I heard an idiot Congresswoman on television the other night say that “no civilians should be allowed to possess such weapons.” Okay darling, let me ask you this. Why did the Social Security Administration put in a request for “174,000 rounds of .357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow-point bullets.” Why did the Department of Agriculture request 320,000 similar rounds? Why has the Department of Homeland Security purchased more than 2,700 Mine Resistant Armored Protection (MRAP) vehicles, 7,000 NATO Personal Defense Weapons (assault rifles), and more than 2,000,000,000 (yes billion) bullets. Enough ammunition to fight an Iraq sized war for 24 years. Unfortunately, this list goes on and on. Why do police forces and other government agencies around the country possess such weapons? Guess what, these guys are not military. They too are civilian. Yes, civilian. Get it? Again, what was one of the two main purposes of the 2nd Amendment? I’ll help you out. It has to do with protecting ourselves from the government. They wrote it, I didn’t. Hey, I have an idea. Let’s first ban all security personnel for all of our government employees. Let’s start there, or is it that their hides are somehow more precious than ours? That new wall they are erecting around the White House. Let’s tear it down because we all know that fences solve absolutely no problems.
As I am writing this, the House Democrats are tucking their tales and licking their collective wounds because they got their butts kicked last night over four new proposed gun bills. Look, yes I am a member of the NRA and am open to sensible gun legislation. Who the hell isn’t? But as a direct knee jerk reaction to known Muslim atrocities, since those proposed actions jeopardize due process for law abiding American citizens, NO. Go back and try again. If the real goal is indeed sensible gun control and not some nefarious liberal, anti-gun agenda, those in government could come up with a solution that EVERY American could stand behind. It is not that hard, people. Also, I am not so sure more laws are what we need but rather the enforcement of those laws already on the books. And let’s not be stupid here. There is a rather vocal contingent out there who would love nothing more than to repeal the Second Amendment. Yes, those idiots do exist, no matter what mask they try to hide behind.
Again, all I am trying to say is we need to look at the real culprit here. It is hate, evil, sin and a society that is rapidly devaluing human life; NOT GUNS. Hmmm, over 300 murders in Chicago already this year. So is it the gun or the foul, disgusting rot that lives within the killers’ heart and mind? My guns have never got up, walked out of the house and killed somebody. Imagine that! The bad guys will always have guns and they will use them. They will get them and yet our government wants to limit our ability to defend ourselves either against a determined enemy now getting firmly ensconced within our borders (as in Western Europe) or to defend ourselves from an arrogant and overreaching government that values the lives of immigrants and those determined to kill us and destroy our way of life over the lives of American citizens.
