CA Democrat Jason Dominguez?s Freudian Slip About Your Freedom

Posted on August 10, 2018 by Ammoland

?Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our political opponents have guns. Why should we let them have ideas?? ~ Joseph Stalin

Freudian Slip!

A Democrat city councilman in CA

 

(Jesse Dominguez from Santa Barbara), piously defending that city?s recent criminalization of the use of plastic straws, inadvertently revealed his, and all liberals?, real agenda:

 

?We have to regulate every aspect of people?s lives.?

 

The ?we? he is talking about is, of course, him and his heaven-anointed fellow liberals, who have been tasked by God (Maxine Waters, in fact, hears from God directly!) to ruthlessly rule-over the rest of us with unlimited, arbitrary power.

The Deplorables

The ?people? are, of course us miserable, ignorant, unenlightened peons, the unchangeable ?underclass,? who must be constantly held-down, restricted, and punished ?for our own good.? We have no ?rights,? save those graciously, condescendingly dribbled upon us by the ethereal, liberal elite.

Dominguez was subsequently surprised and ?hurt? when he discovered that a least a few among us ?people? didn?t appreciate his nonchalant comments about the ?divine separation? between ?we? and ?people.?

Embarrassingly backtracking, Dominguez casually dismissed critics by describing his blundering comments as, a ?string of words in a rhetorical fashion,? whatever that means.

Yet, what Dominguez actually did was make a classic ?Freudian Slip.? That is, he mistakenly said what he really meant, a faux-pas all liberals try hard to avoid. He inadvertently (but oh-so eloquently) articulated a deep-rooted truth about all liberals/progressives.

They desperately want to go back to the feudal European system of limitless, arbitrary government power, the corrupt system our courageous Founders came over here, and ultimately fought our Revolutionary War, to get away from.

They are not good people, and it is not difficult to understand why they work so unflaggingly to take guns away from ?the people.? And still people keep voting for Democrats!?!?

We had GAU-17, 7.62 miniguns

I'd hate to think how many rounds we fired. I do know that we had ten gunships. A normal mission, we put up two guns, maybe four. The first year we expended our basic load of 1,000,000 rounds. And I did several more years like that.

Some regiment guys had .50's, the Marines had .50's, and of course the Apaches shoot 30mm. The Air FOrce over there mostly dropped bombs or used A-10's firing a different, high velocity 30mm.

It is only the AC-130 bros who shoot a combo of 20mm vulcan, 40mm twin, and a single 105 breach loading cannon

Someone would have shot the man here in Kentucky

Several years ago the state legislature changed the law.

It used to be you could defend yourself with a gun if you were facing deadly force

Now the law allows us to shoot if you believe you or your property is in imminent danger

That has stopped a bunch of the schennaghans.

One of my neighbors shot and killed a boy here. Two kids broke into a house and the old man living there pumped a bunch of .22's into the lead element. Tried to shoot both of them. The survivor called 911. The police found one living and one expired perp. The man was never arrested, the survivor was jailed.

Makes me wonder if the charred remains would survive the trip over to Tate's place where he and Bob would ponder the environmental impact of this thing???
All I know is Tate's drive up to the Arctic to hand it off to Sam would be a long one, although the sleepovers in Bob's camper would be quite pleasant. And under a starry night (lasting 6 months) Sam would likely finish the job Tex started and burn it just to survive the cold!

Faith Discussion / Battle lines drawn
« on: August 13, 2018, 02:24:54 PM »
This sounds very much like 1930?s Germany and their control of religion plus anti-semitism. Pray that Kavanaugh can be confirmed so that justice will prevail.

Battle Lines Drawn Over Supreme Court Pick?s Christian Faith
It?s easy to chalk up the far left?s hysteria of Brett Kavanaugh?s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court as yet another instance of Trump Derangement Syndrome. But this time, battle lines have been drawn squarely over his devotion to God.

Almost every Democrat in the U.S. Senate has lined up to assassinate the character of the federal judge who serves as a husband, father and Christian. His reputation as a fair and impartial jurist has raised no red flags. His rulings from the bench demonstrate a brilliant and rarely-equaled knowledge of the U.S. Constitution.

Without question, Judge Kavanaugh ranks among the utmost qualified people to be nominated to the high court. But, he?s a church-going Catholic and liberals won?t stand for it.

In an effort to slow-walk and defeat his nomination, Democrats have requested more than one million documents about Kavanaugh. The outlandish request has been infused with hateful remarks about the man who coaches in his daughters? Catholic basketball league.

?Brett Kavanaugh is a dangerous criminal,? Hillary Shelton of the NAACP reportedly said.

Kavanaugh also tutors underprivileged elementary school children, serves meals to the homeless and guest speaks in church. Everyday Americans can expect to bear witness to one of the most unhinged Congressional hearings with his Catholicism as the left?s red line in the sand.

Since the days when Judge Kavanaugh was appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit by Pres. George W. Bush in 2006, things have dramatically changed in Washington.

Kavanaugh ascended to his post with relative ease. Christianity wasn?t quite the bad word liberal Democrats view it as today. A more recent dust-up between California Sen. Diane Feinstein and Circuit Court nominee Amy Coney Barret shows that the left will not tolerate Christian judges.

?When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you,? Sen. Feinstein criticized Judge Barrett.

Barrett, also a Catholic, was taken to task by Democrat senators over her devout faith. Many saw it as a reason to disqualify her for a judgeship. To that end, several Senate Democrats are refusing to even meet with Kavanaugh as the process ramps up.

Only in states that are mostly conservative and Christian have Democrat senators agreed to meet. Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia was the first to extend his hand. West Virginia was won overwhelmingly by Pres. Donald J. Trump.

One of the primary reasons that liberals rally against Christians is that God stands between them and a country in which they can preach secular values. Moral issues such as abortion and racism are addressed in the Bible. The good book opposes both and that creates a central problem for Democrats who garner votes by dividing Americans.

Despite the fact that religious tests are forbidden under Article VI of the Constitution, Democrats plan to shrug off their oath and apply one regardless.

Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has already covertly called for a litmus test for Pres. Trump?s nominations. Religion and the exclusion of Christians is at the center of his thinking when he said the test should be ?an affirmative statement of support for the personal liberties of all Americans.? Sen. Schumer is advocating for abortion, same-sex marriage and a far-left worldview.

During the confirmation hearings of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, New Jersey liberal Sen. Corey Booker threw mud asking whether he believed homosexuality was ?perverse.? Now-Secretary Pompeo would not dignify the radical senator?s line of questioning. In response, Booker soiled twitter saying, ?At his confirmation hearing, Mike Pompeo repeatedly refused to answer a simple question: Do you believe being gay is a perversion??

The Kavanaugh hearings are expected to sink to even lower depths. Political analysts expect unsubstantiated claims of bigotry, misogyny and framing Kavanaugh?s Christianity as cult-like.

Conservatives, on the other hand, may hold their noses and vote yes, disappointed that Kavanaugh is not conservative enough for them. His appointment would replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy whose views are similar to Kavanaugh?s. Consider where Judge Kavanaugh stands on important Christian issues.

Catholicism:Judge Kavanaugh remains an active practicing Catholic and lector at the Most Blessed Sacrament in Washington, D.C. His volunteer work includes tutoring at Washington Jesuit Academy and helping the homeless through Catholic Charities.
Abortion:Kavanaugh wrote a dissenting opinion that an unaccompanied illegal immigrant teen did not have a right to a taxpayer-funded abortion while in U.S. protective custody.
ObamaCare:The judge wrote a dissenting opinion that Obamacare?s mandate that employers be forced to provide contraceptive care ?substantially burden the religious organizations? exercise of religion because the regulations require the organizations to take an action contrary to their sincere religious beliefs (submitting the form) or else pay significant monetary penalties.?
In terms of religious makeup on the U.S. Supreme Court, Kavanaugh would maintain the status quo. Retiring Justice Kennedy is also a Catholic with similar views about the law and faith. Secular Democrats may attempt to tarnish another loving Christian?s reputation. However, America will wake up a more religiously tolerant place after Republicans and a few conservative Democrats cast 50-plus votes for Brett Kavanaugh.

Our Heros, The "Hooah" or "Ooh-Rah" Place / A cowboy walks into a bar...
« on: August 13, 2018, 02:21:45 PM »
A cowboy walks into a bar and orders three mugs of Bud.


He sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn.When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more.

The bartender tells the cowboy, "You know the beer would be colder if you bought one at a time..."

The cowboy replies,  ?I have two brothers. One is an Airborne Ranger, the other is a Navy Seal, both serving overseas. When we all left home, we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together. So I'm drinking one beer for each of my brothers and one for myself."

The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way.

One day, he comes in and only orders two mugs. All the regulars take notice and fall silent.

When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss."

The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in his eyes and he laughs. "Oh, no, everybody's just fine," he explains, "It's just that my wife and I just joined the Church of Christ and I had to quit drinking."

D.O.T. / Some NFL player have a problem that's not knee related...
« on: August 13, 2018, 02:15:17 PM »
I am sickened by this sort of thing. Black men and women need to self police and get this fixed. So many fatherless children when we all know a father is essential to proper development.

But with examples like these POS NFL players, it is no wonder why they are failing.




Not  Only  the  Knee . . . !

The knee is not the only problem . . . 68 children by 52 women!  7 players!

 

Children raised in fatherless homes, especially black children, are far more likely than children raised in two parent homes to engage in criminal behavior and thus, have contact with police.

 

Ergo when they father a child with a woman to whom they are not married---or at least living with---they are contributing to the problem against which these football players are taking a knee

            If you look at many of these players' records on out-of-wedlock children, you find that they are contributing significantly to the problem against which they are protesting.

            For example, Antonio Cromartie has 12 children by 9 different women.  Apparently the NFL had to shell out $500,000 before he could even play football for them. Travis Henry has 11 children by 10 women, Willis McGahee has 9 children by 8 women, Derrick Thomas has 7 children by 5 different women, Bennie Blades has 6 children by 6 women,  Ray Lewis has 6 children by 4 women and Marshall Faulk has 6 children by 3 women.

            They forgot to include Adrian Peterson: 11 kids from 7 different women.

        Before these guys take a knee they should take a good look in the mirror.

 

It appears that their problem is  not the knee.

Let me bring you back to reality:

Taken from a web site I found.

Wood Type   Plank & 1/2 Log   Finish   Shipping
Second Growth Cedar   $120 U.S. [per linear foot]   $90 U.S. each   $110 U.S. each
Old Growth Red Cedar   $145 U.S. [per linear foot]   $90 U.S. each   $110 U.S. each
Pacific Yew   $195 U.S. [per linear foot]   $170 U.S. each   $180 U.S. each
Juniper OUT OF STOCK    $245 U.S. [per linear foot]   $130 U.S. each   $130 U.S. each

Around here, a chunk of timber suitable for a rustic mantle sells for $120 ish a running foot. Again, I would love to help my friends on this site, but I think filling up a shipping container is going to get north of $10K real quick.

We should look for a nice mantle or two, and have me bubble wrap the snot out of it and ship it to ya and I'll show a lot of love.
For the general audience: I have hosted the various giveaways on this Real Man site for years now. I know those who have contributed. To those folks, I will be very kind to in return.

Right.    So talking with a coworker who has used the shipping containers,  he says it?s usually 3000 pounds in the max for the smaller 8 foot long boxes,  for about $600 pending the travel distance.  So if Don were to stack one of these about half full with some of those solid beams and it be picked up and delivered to Utah.  That makes it more usable and cost affective.   However there are a few of the other things that might be worth looking into?  Anyone else in this side of the country interested?  Can these be sourced closer to home?

Need Dons zip code to figure out shipping costs

Not to put too much of a point on it, but what would you need with all that timber? If I highly discounted it (Willing to) it would still cost a fortune for that much. This stuff ain't fir 2X4's... Furniture/cabinet grade 100+ year old seasoned timber...
