Why The Newspaper Industry Is Going Broke

I recently read a story in “The Salt Lake Tribune” written by a member of the editorial board named Casey Jones. Mr. Jones tried to paint himself as an average citizen so as to make his twisted assessment of the tea party in Salt Lake City make those who attended seem like outside the norm radicals. Mr. Jones seems to like to make up his own facts as he goes along rather than dealing with the real truth. It is also evident that Mr. Jones is just another mindless Obama Bott regurgitating leftist lies at will!

Below is a link to the story in “The Salt Lake Tribune” so you can read it for yourself!

Gun Ownership And Citizen Security

With Eric Holder now appointed as the US Attorney General I remembered an email someone sent me a few days ago with some interesting statistics on gun control.

In 1911, Turkey  established gun control.
From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

In 1929, the  Soviet Union established gun control.
From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

China established gun control in 1935.
From 1948 to 1952, some 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Germany established gun control in 1938.
From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

Guatemala established gun control in 1964…
From 1964 to 1981, some 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Cambodia established gun control in 1956.
From 1975 to 1977, one million ‘educated’ people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Uganda established gun control in 1970.
From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control:
56 million.

It has now been 12 months since gun owners in  Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government, a program costing  Australia  taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first year results are now in:

Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent

Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent

Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!

In the state of  Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while  the law-abiding citizens turned them in, thecriminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!

It will never happen here? I bet the Aussies said that   too!

While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.

You won’t see this data on the  US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late!

With Guns………….We Are ‘Citizens’…
Without Them……..We Are ‘Subjects’…

During W.W. II the Japanese decided not to invade   America because they knew most Americans were ARMED !

Note: Admiral Yamamoto who crafted the attack on  Pearl Harbor had attended Harvard U 1919-1921 & was  Naval Attache to the U. S. 1925-28. Most of our Navy was destroyed at  Pearl Harbor & our Army had been deprived of funding & was ill prepared to defend the country.

It was reported that when asked why  Japan did not follow up the Pearl Harbor attack with an invasion of the U. S.  Mainland, his reply was that he had lived in the  U. S.  & knew that almost all households had guns.

After reviewing history’s record, whether it be many years ago or recently, history’s record shows that citizen disarmament leads to citizen control at best, extermination at the worse destination! One then can come to only one conclusion concerning political leaders who push gun control, they wish to either control their subjects, or eliminate them!

Let’s Just Go Back To What Works

There hasn’t been a real solid conservative candidate for president in the Republican Party since Ronald Reagan! A Democrat Lite ticket will always lose, because most people will not get excited about a moderate candidate, as the last two elections have made abundantly clear.

Another thing that must be considered is if non-Republicans can continue to nominate mamby pambys like John McCain for the Republican Party to run as their candidate for president, you can be assured that the base will not turn out, and that means a Democrat win. All this talk about moderation seems odd considering that the moderate and spineless “Republicans” in Washington seem to be more the problem than the solution. Ronald Reagan didn’t set forth moderate ideas or confusing double-speak, on the contrary he was very bold, forward and steadfast in his convictions, and this is what attracted people to him and the Republican Party of his day! Today’s Republican leaders for the most part are hesitant, weak and unsure at best, in what they believe or if they believe anything, and have very little propensity to stand on solid principles that at one time sustained the party and still would if our leadership and party members are convinced enough to once again stand on timeless moral principles.

May God once again grant us the fortitude to stand on the solid conservative principals that we once stood for!

The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Ecclesiastes 1:9
