Share your Ignorance

Organizing for Action

Just got another creepy email from one "Jon Carson", aka "info@barackobama.com". It asks me:

"Why are you fighting to reduce gun violence?"

What a clever, presumptive title that places me immediately into one of two boxes!
  • EITHER:  I'm aiding these "control junkies" in their quest strip off rights and liberties of the general population "for a common cause",
  • OR:  I'm apathetic and unconcerned with violence (at best) and causing the deaths of my fellow citizens (worse). 
This stuff is exactly the kind of plainly-executed Orwellian nightmare fodder that would make someone like Joseph_Goebbels glow with pride.

Here's the message:
Maybe you've seen firsthand how gun violence can rip apart a family and a community.

Or maybe you're concerned by what you see on the news.

Whatever your reason, those in Congress who oppose sensible change need to hear from you: Share your personal story or views on why Congress should act right now to help protect our kids and reduce gun violence.

Notice how Jon's last paragraph says essentially nothing - except that you should help provide their propaganda operatives with more ideas that can be utilized to reinforce their agenda,  Nothing is said about what that agenda is, or how it is helpful.  So any cooperation you provide will be akin to writing a blank check for them.

It's right about one thing though.  What I see on the news does disturb me, quite often in fact.  But I don't think we're talking about the same events at all.

It continues...

Your story will inspire others to speak out and show legislators that now is the time.

President Obama said it: "More than a thousand birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries have been stolen from our lives by a bullet from a gun" in just the two months since the tragedy in Newtown.
Billions and billions to be served.
So why is our government buying up guns and bullets as fast as possible right nowIs this a new economic stimulus program?  Why are there ammunition shortages where the public is concerned?  It's hard not to think that their is a deliberate effort afoot to deprive the citizens of ammunition, possibly in advance of Something Big... like a total economic collapse, for example.  It would be advantageous for the showrunners to be the only ones with firepower in such a calamitous scenario, wouldn't it?  Oh, I know, I'm just being paranoid.  But 1.6B (yes, billion) bullets?

Each of those families deserves a vote by Congress on commonsense measures to help protect our kids.

But we need to demand it.

It's easy to share your story or point of view:
Blah blah blah ... instructions are provided next, supposedly to submit a story to be shared with your fellow citizens in a public forum... However, I'm sure my own would never be published, only ones which fit the right "mold" that supports the gun-grab agenda of the radical left in our country.

Notice, to submit anything you must provided enough information to be located and "subsequently corrected" if your thoughts are "wrong".

The email continues, imploring me to participate in their zombie horde:
Please share your story today:
Well gosh.  If you insist, team-Obama.  But instead of wasting space reposting the instructions to aid anti-constitutional traitors, I'm going "green" to save you some server bandwidth and carbon-credit.  I'll just go ahead and post my own story and point of view here.  I will make my demand known in very short and concise language, which I am more than happy to share with everyone:
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
You might recognize that from the Bill of Rights.  Or maybe not.
The needs of the many... or the one?
Then, Jon provides us with the courteous closing pitch, replete with the insipid and perfunctory "needs of the one outweigh the needs of the many" fallacy that we have come to loathe as much as any public statement by Dianne Feinstein ...

This won't be easy, but if we can save even one life, it'll be worth it.

Right on.  Not an easy road ahead, to be sure.  I imagine things will get pretty ugly someday, and DHS is going to need all those bullets and guns they have (or are acquiring in mass right now) to keep the unruly citizens under thumb.  The ones with so many stories to tell, and the ones who remain quiet.  Either way.

(N-1) 1, for all N > 2
Say Jon let me ask you something.  What if we found out, hypothetically speaking, that your efforts (1) were going to result in the deaths of two or more people (N) who, being disarmed by your policy agenda, were unable to save themselves in a crisis?  If you hadn't been able to promote the disarmament agenda as you are, let's say because you experienced an unfortunate and tragic Rosalind Shays moment with an elevator shaft... well, just do the math inequality here (see the adjacent photo caption).  On the very likely probability that N will be much greater than 2, Jon, the math says something very unfortunate.  But if we can just save one life, as you said ... well. 

P.S. -- Read some of the powerful stories that folks have already shared, then hit the "Tell Your Story" button to submit your own.

No thanks.  I've lost my appetite now.  Perhaps you would like a nice, big cup of "shut the fuck up", though?

Jon may want to check out some additional information, like this:
And at least try to have the folks there sacked, or at the very least re-educated.  I know it's not the kind of thing he would probably like to hear, but let me quote from that page briefly some salient points:
However, the Supreme Court has now definitively held that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that weapon for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. Moreover, this right applies not just to the federal government, but to states and municipalities as well.
In Heller, the Court held that (1) the District of Columbia's total ban on handgun possession in the home amounted to a prohibition on an entire class of "arms" that Americans overwhelmingly chose for the lawful purpose of self-defense, and thus violated the Second Amendment; and (2) the District's requirement that any lawful firearm in the home be disassembled or bound by a trigger lock also violated the Second Amendment, because the law made it impossible for citizens to use arms for the core lawful purpose of self-defense.
The stories Jon seeks may be helpful to bolster the cause of a propaganda machine bent of violating the inalienable rights granted by God, but unfortunately, will be of little practical use beyond that.  If we, the people, pay attention to what's actually going on here.

Let's finish what we started. Chip in $25 or more to Organizing for Action, the grassroots movement that will get the job done.
Let's not.  Sorry, I'm a little short on money for treason right now.  But your guys can keep printing new money forever (right?), so why do you really need mine, anyway?  Don't worry, Jon.  At least not until the war-crimes trials begin, if you're still pushing the same agenda for your masters.  We'll see you then.
