    Psychiatrists Are the New Federal Gun Control Agents and Political Thought Police

    tyranny-tj-and-obama

    The Obama administration has a new partner in crime and it is the American Psychiatric Association (APA).  The APA created the new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (5th Edition) which was recently adopted. DSM 5 is highly controversial and has sparked outrage from the mental health practitioners. As many of these practitioners point out, the new DSM-V makes a pathology out simple and normal behaviors such as grieving for the loss of a loved one.

    This constitutes a new subjective approach in diagnosing of mental illness that promises to end free speech and any form of political dissent. The federal government has already declared anyone who oppose its unconstitutional policies as having “political paranoia,”  which is now diagnosed as a type of mental illness.

    Psychiatry Targets Internet Conspiracy Theorists

    Particularly disturbing is that the new manual targets internet users and conspiracy theorists. If someone is judged, by some vague set of criteria, to spend too much time on the internet, they could be judged to be mentally ill and ineligible to own a gun. How are you receiving this information? The chances are that you are, at least according to Obama and Biden, giving in to your internet addiction and reading this article. Under the new Obama guidelines this would be grounds for gun confiscation. The alternative media is predicated on internet readership and listenership. These groups would be among the first groups to oppose a martial law crackdown, and now they are the first to be targeted.

    Subsequently, this is just another backdoor method to disarm citizens who would oppose the abject tyranny being imposed upon America. And these facts sum up what is truly behind the Obama administration’s latest attack upon gun ownership because they want to prey upon a defenseless nation by disarming as many of us as possible before the purges can begin in earnest.

    Under Obama’s new proposed gun regulations, anyone who has a diagnosable, or is potentially diagnosable (i.e. pre-crime) for being mentally ill, can have their gun confiscated. Vice President Biden even feels that they can violate HIPPA privacy regulations in requiring the states to report who has been treated for a mental illness. Therefore, in the name of confiscating your gun, this administration thinks it is acceptable to violate federal privacy laws.

    What is interesting to me is that the Obama administration is not even trying to distinguish between mental illnesses in terms of who should, or should not own a gun. In the eyes of the Obama administration, all mental illnesses are created equal. A person with a phobia is just as dangerous as a sociopath. One in six Americans have a “diagnosable anxiety disorder”. This is completely understandable given the economic and political times that we live in. However, under the new proposed guidelines, all of these people would be ineligible to have a gun in their possession even though there is not a shred of research which indicates this population would be inclined towards gun violence any more than any other population.

    I once predicted that any form of political protest would be demonized and used as the basis for the administration of assignment a mentally ill label upon anyone who disagrees with the government.

    Political Schizophrenia

    This is the new  Soviet style political schizophrenia. We will see confinements among the alternative media and the veterans for things like ADHD, grieving, normal anxiety, bad eating habits, etc. All of these behaviors and more have been categorized as pathologies under the Obama administration and a supportive American Psychiatric Association.

    Oppositional Defiant Disorder Is the Newest Weapon Against Political Dissent

    When I went through my clinical training, the Bible of mental illness, The Statistical and Diagnostic Manual (DSM-4r) defined Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) as a highly controversial mentally illness used to describe children and teens as mentally ill they exhibited disobedience and defiance. When I was first nationally credentialed, most practitioners did not take this diagnosis seriously and we mistakenly believed that it would fade away. We uniformly believed this to be true because defiance and oppositional behaviors are hallmark traits of healthy rebellion exhibited by children and teens as they seek independence. Rather than ODD fading away, the diagnosis has become the tool of the ruling elite.

    The new DSM (5) has expanded the definition of ODD to include adults who exemplify “paranoid ideation” about the government and frequently express these delusional ideations on the internet.

    In its analysis of the political abuse of psychiatry in both the Soviet Union and China, The Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law stated that “Psychiatric incarceration of mentally healthy people is uniformly understood to be a particularly pernicious form of repression, because it uses the powerful modalities of medicine as tools of punishment, and it compounds a deep affront to human rights with deception and fraud…”

    Conclusion

    The Obama people are trying to take this country down a very slippery slope. They are seeking to disarm as many Americans as possible with all available means such what has been described in this article.

    The historical precedent, and subsequent danger of seizing guns under such a false pretense, has been well-established. Therefore, I will not belabor a well-established point, that all 19 genocides in the 20th century were preceded by gun confiscation. Why should we consider Obama’s recent actions to be any less threatening of deadly?

    What is even more frightening, is the new ODD diagnosis will not just seize guns. It will commandeer a person’s mind through incarceration, for their own good of course, and forced drugging which will chemically castrate the brains of all arrested political dissidents.

    We already know that Obamacare forces doctors to ask the gun ownership status of their patients. It is not a leap of logic that anyone owning a gun will soon be diagnosed with yet another manufactured mental illness tied to gun ownership.

    I would like to hear from psychiatrists. Are you going to support this tyranny? Or, are you going to be an Oathkeeper to your profession and “do no harm” to your patients? Or, will you capitulate and goose-step your way through the new political prisons in America and do your part to suppress liberty?

      Maybe I better change my handle.

      • Defiant says:

        Nahh!! They already know I’m a lunatic……

        • Ordinary Average Guy says:

          Its the thought police again! Free thinkers and those who do for themselves do not fit in with the new plan. Self sufficiency is bad and must be exterminated. You must fall in with the rest of the sheep…..and stand in line for your gov handouts.

          • Gods Creation says:

            Psychiatrist are the biggest quacks in the world. Just like any other “person” that requires a license, they can be trained to do anything for a paycheck.

            The desperation to disarm us is showing. They now know they can do it with legislation, so they will try new tricks on smaller groups and hope the results add up to defenseless people.

            They are far outnumbered by those who will never give up their guns and understand why their possession and use is protected in the Law.

            • Gods Creation says:

              oops, CAN”T do it with legislation.

                • Be informed says:

                  Thought police? Shall we be surprised? Just look at all the political correctness that pollutes the freedom of speech of this country. The thought police will become literal if and when these evil bastards start to connect people’s brains to some mainframe. Starts with the ID chip that is expanded chip to EVERYTHING.

                  Okay thought police what do you think of this asswipes? Just like what Walt said in regard to being chipped, you can either leave me alone or you can kill me. So thought police how do you assess someone that WON’T conform to society and WON’T be told what to think? Guess I and practically everyone here is a disruptive influnce to the country. Guess everyone that is not a brain dead conformist that thinks on their very own needs to be doped up?

                  Thought police can sit on a broken broom stick.

                • John Q. Public says:

                  Be of good cheer. It is the winners who will write DSM 6.

                  Be among the winners :-)

                • Tonto says:

                  Psychiatry has many useful symbols, the names of so-called mental disorders. About 300 appear to designate actual mental states, but upon close inspection, they’re empty of scientific meaning. If you’re a propagandist, you look for symbols that seem to have specific meanings – but don’t. Such symbols snare people and drag them into slave camps of the mind. It hardly matters which label a person gets, as long as it results in a diagnosis and a drug prescription.

                  The FDA is in the deal as well, as shown by drug “safety” approvals, in light of the damage these drugs do.
                  All 300 so-called mental disorders are based on no diagnostic tests. No saliva, no blood, no genes, no brain scans, for any disorder. Medical science, and disease research in particular, rests on the notion that you can make a diagnosis backed up by lab tests. If you can’t produce lab tests, you’re spinning fantasies. There is no lab test for any mental disorder.

              • Shootit says:

                My network is running 24/7. I have multiple computers doing multiple tasks. One listens to Glen’s radio 24/7. One is locked onto Drudge who auto refreshes the page. One looks at a national radar that updates every couple of minutes. Plus I have a WiFi that is open to multiple devices including my UPS, USPS, FEDEX drivers, and others that happen to know my password. I am on maybe 1 hour a day. We are worse than a library on purpose.

                • Paid Government Troll says:

                  Perhaps you should put that cluster to good use…design a trojan that delivers kiddy-porn to government officials and notifies police…one way to divide and conquer.

            • JayJay says:

              Exactly–GC; if you can NOT solve your problem, how can a stranger that uses a book solve your problem?
              Quack–quack, quack, quack, here ducky duck.

              • lonelonemum says:

                This has been happening to Vets for a while now without any protest from “we the people”. They go for a check up on a dodgy knee and return home disarmed.

                Vets are that specific group of individuals with the genuine skills and experience needed to LEAD an armed resistance to the NWO. The very group best placed to train others to boot.

                I got involved in some of the UK consultations for this as my son has genetic & possibly chernobyl induced neuro issues. ODD used to be seen as the juvenille precursor to an adult diagnosis of sociopathy/pyschopathy. Do note how that particular diagnosis is being downgraded. It’s also interesting to look at the changes to the Autistic and pervasive development disorder diagnoses compared to the previous edition.

                There is one point the paper pushers have overlooked. When the brown-shirted jack boots kick in your door in the middle of the night, are you gonna care if the gun under your bed is “legal” or not. I don’t recall anyone going round in Syria or Bosnia with a clipboard telling the combatants on the front lines they needed to check their firearms licences. Neither have I ever seen a queue of gangbangers waiting to get their little rubber stamp, when they could be laying abed or out causing mayhem.

                I predict a massive increase in the purchasing of plastic piping, condoms and shovels over the coming years. The number of boating accidents will also increase exponentially.

                Lastly, in Rwanda they didn’t use guns – machetes and axes did the job just fine. All over Europe the humble Molotov seems to be used in every riot. In London criminals use the humble kitchen knife. If a raving nutter is set on killing you, his not having a gun to use isn’t gonna make the blindest bit of difference to either his intent or his chances of success.

                  The Voice of Freedom

                  “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family?
                  Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!
                  If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
                  – The Gulag Archipelago, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

                • Oathkeeper209 says:

                  Fair enough, keep an extra AR-15 and a full loadout for that next vet, if they claim to be sl, ask for that DD-214. Like they say, most owners own multiple guns, you can’t shoot’em all at once, but save the country, enlist a vet! Buy an AR!

                In the article it says: “Data about ammunition left over after the meeting disappears from the books, resulting in an unknown amount of good bullets headed to the scrap heap.”

                What do you want to bet, that “unknown” ammo is not going to any scrap heap—it’s going to Ukraine, to al-CIA-duh in Syria and Libya.

                Be Informed, good evening, and once again you are right on target. I have my own questions for the thought police. What is your position on anyone who has critical thinking skills, i.e. knows how to think for themselves and does not accept indoctrination on any subject from any source? What will you do with anyone who won’t conform to any fascist or communist BS? As far as I’m concerned, thought police, shrinks, etc. can go f#$% themselves! {sorry, Mac, this article really has me worked up this time] Want to come after me? Only at your own peril.

              • Archivist says:

                A worker at Dorothea Dix mental hospital in Raleigh told me over 40 years ago that the only difference between the inmates and the workers was who had the keys.

                But he was a vicious chess player. He would taunt me saying “You give me that piece gratis?”

            • Mr. West says:

              Yesterday in my town the news was reporting that Democrat Get Out the Vote teams were making their way through many apartment complexes. The news camera showed that in almost every case the person signing up for voter registration was a non-English speaking Hispanic / Latino / Mexican whatever. So the dems plan on these non-citizens voting in the next election, and presumably there is nothing we can do about it. Now this, getting the Psy-Fi’s to turn anyone in that they can and use the very thought of it to dissuade anyone from speaking their mind.

              I predict a world very quickly where anonymous groups, possibly concerned with the unconstitutional actions, will be forming to warn the Hispanics that exercising their non-right to vote just may get them on somebody dead list.

              I also see future world where these Medical Doctors who push Obammy’s tyranny will need to be protected 24×7 by armed security every where they go.

              This is my definition of Ironic…

              I agree Psychiatrist are nothing but quacks, I look after a lady who is very ill, went to doctors for years, hospitals for testing and that quack psychiatrist said there was nothing wrong with her mind, she is now skitzo, and because she has been to so many doctors for help, some of which even laughed at her now she wont go to doctors any more, these quacks are useless to society, what society needs is people who are qualified to help people on all levels of their being.

      • Psychiatry and tyranny are always in bed together. Psychiatry is made for tyranny because no psychological “disorders” can be diagnosed clinically. Everything is subjective to Dr Quack’s opinion. Not a shred of proof is needed. Resistance to or any questioning of their “treatment” is considered proof that the diagnosis is correct. Psychiatry has a long history of bizarre, sadistic “treatments”. A “mental health evaluation” always yields the desired diagnosis. Psychiatrists are the only doctors (these evil sadists truly believe they are actually doctors) who insist upon treating people against their will. Psychiatric drugs have been responsible for an enormous amount of human suffering. a few years ago, some even wanted to bring back Thalidomide as an antidepressant. Do a search for images of thalidomide babies, but not right after you have eaten.

      “Psychiatrists Are the New Federal Gun Control Agents and Political Thought Police”

      Actually they are just another cog in the wheel of the beast. Along with the ALL of the 3 letter agencies, and the gov. in general.

      The sooner people wake up to the fact that they currently live in an ‘occupied’ country or area, the better. You are NOT living under true freedom, only the guise of it.

      -KNOW your neighbors
      -KNOW where they work
      -KNOW what they do.

      This is WAR and knowing your enemy and how they function is the first step to achieving victory. Hey 3 letter agencies… big middle finger ‘salute’ to you!

      • “know your enemy”

        Well, this business of “Psychiatry” (control and manipulation of the human MIND) has been in the “works”, i.e. “their” plan for a long, long time. Who are the founders of psychology, the heavy hitters, i.e. which tribe members represent the majority founders in this field? What 2% of the US population OWNS the Banks, MSM, Hollywood, Politicians, Education (Common Core), Universities, etc., etc.? Who runs the AMA, BIG PHARMA? What group is obsessed with control and manipulation

        IT’s ALL tied together; the Zionists have an airtight plan. They are miles ahead of us. Have been for a long time.

    3. I don’t trust anyone with a PH.D. They live in their ivory towers, living off federal grants, trying to re-engineer people’s lives when they can’t even run their own lives.

      They have a new psychotic name for every human emotion and stamp everyone as ‘dangerous’.

      • the renegade braveheart says:

        Ohio River, I’m with you. I’ve said this many times and it bears repeating. NOTHING THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DOES HAS ANY LEGITIMATE BASIS TO IT WHATSOEVER. THIS NEW SCHEME IS NO MORE LEGITIMATE THAN ANYTHING ELSE THEY’RE DOING. The diagnostic and statistical manual they speak of is nothing more than propaganda, just like the DHS guidelines of who they consider to be a domestic terrorist; nothing legitimate about either one. Any shrink who thinks he or she can label me as anything in particular and come to me with bad intentions toward me, just bring it on. always remember this: government has never produced one acre of food or one barrel of oil or anything else. what govt. does is take away from people who produce something and gives away to people who don’t produce anything. Govt. ruins everything it touches. A govt. employee couldn’t open a box of cereal without screwing that up.

      Psychiatry is a joke. It’s the only part of the medical community that invents its own diseases. Got a bad temper? No, it’s just “intermittent explosive disorder”. Me, I suffer from “work aversion syndrome”. It can’t be cured. It can only be treated by long expensive paid vacations. The first rule for creating any disease name is that it MUST be described in 3 words. The APA loves TLA’s, that is, three letter acronyms. It would all be funny if it wasn’t so dangerous. They can stick some label on people and use it to take away their kids, guns, property, jobs, or freedom.

      What’s the future? Being a Christian or some other political undesirable will someday be categorized as a mental illness.

    11. MRHapla says:

      Recall: The psychiatrists are the ones who changed the DSM to allow all manner of freaky behavior to become ‘normalized’. They can just as easily use it to ‘pathologize’ behavior or habits/interests they deem unsuitable to the LibScum agenda.

      The Soviet/Commies used their psychiatrists to persecute their enemies of the stat too.

      And we all know where Obama and Co. get their ideas from..

    12. C.G. Jung, Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist who founded analytical psychology stressed the importance of individual rights in a person’s relation to the state and society. He saw that the state was treated as “a quasi-animate personality from whom everything is expected” but that this personality was “only camouflage for those individuals who know how to manipulate it”, and referred to the state as a form of slavery. He also thought that the state “swallowed up [people's] religious forces”, and therefore that the state had “taken the place of God”—making it comparable to a religion in which “state slavery is a form of worship”. Jung observed that “stage acts of [the] state” are comparable to religious displays: “Brass bands, flags, banners, parades and monster demonstrations are no different in principle from ecclesiastical processions, cannonades and fire to scare off demons”. From Jung’s perspective, this replacement of God with the state in a mass society led to the dislocation of the religious drive and resulted in the same fanaticism of the church-states of the Dark Ages—wherein the more the state is ‘worshipped’, the more freedom and morality are suppressed; this ultimately leaves the individual psychically undeveloped with extreme feelings of marginalization.

      • I don’t believe in monster, but I recognize evil when I see it, there are different kinds of evil in the world just as there are different kinds of weapons. My weapons do not define me, but the cause for which I may use them will.

        The State in this case can only be seen as overreaching and evil because they can only be seen as a threatening force, whether that force is used to strip us of our rights and property, or used to tell us what and how to think.

        Forced order is what they want, and TPTB have been pushing and prodding us for a long time. I’m always amazed at how patient the American people have been over the last many years, but things like this are designed so that we start the battle, the problem is that when it starts it will be small and it will give them the advantage of painting us as criminals.

        I know who and what I am, I will continue to assess the battlefield and hope that enough people see the shackles they’re being handed and this war for the souls of man can be averted, if not…

        D.H. Lawrence
        “The essential American soul is hard, isolate, stoic, and a killer. It has never yet melted.”

        • Lawrence’s ashes are on the lower of slope of Lobo Peak in northern New Mexico. Long ago, I knew people that knew him. One of them said that “Lawrence saw the light but chose the darkness”.

          As to the American soul – Lawrence might have seen one aspect of it. But again, he might have been looking in a mirror.

          The disappearing farmers and ranchers of the American West have a certain stoic equanimity due to a life outdoors grappling with the elemental forces of nature imo.

          As to the “killer” part, we know what happened in the South Pacific at Peleliu and Okinawa, et al when that instinct was fully awakened.

          We will see how much of that is left when it plays out here. Although we may be slow to arouse, it may be a good thing.

          It’s instructive to hear MVB’s story of what happens when you poke a wolverine with a stick over at sipseystreetirregularsDOTblogspotDOTcom if you can find it on the site. I think it might have been told again in his speech at the Bundy ranch.

          • NEW

            I believe we all at some point in our lives must address the darkness (shadow) part of understanding evil begins with self-reflection, it would not surprise me that Lawrence was controlled by his ego (shadow) he was also fixated on nature and by those laws he may have seen things very black and white.

            As to our slow to response to the overreach of TPTB I see it as an advantage, we have befuddled the progressives thus far by just holding our ground, this is why they continue to push.

      Another question is – ‘Do you own a gun?’
      I respond, ‘Yes’ to the first question.

      When I asked the nurse about the seatbelt question,
      she responded, ‘To see if you exhibit reckless behavior.’

        I told her if you didn’t have so many stupid questions on it that you have no RIGHT to ask I wouldn’t have had to answer them that way.

        She got Pissed off and told me to redo it. I told her YOU ARE FIRED tore up the form, and walked out.

        As a physician, I am really saddened to see comments like this.

        Most doctors that I know got into the field because they wanted to help people. Many get corrupted by the system but not everyone.

        That said, I have essentially left clinical practice because the current system is a mess and makes it nearly impossible to practice caring, patient centered medical care.

        In my experience, psychiatrists and psychologists, along with social workers, are some of the most messed up of the group. Most of them that I have known have come from highly dysfunctional families and they go into the field to work through their own pathology. They try to define what is normal and what is not and they rigidly guard these boundaries. In many cases, I think they are terrified that allowing any tolerance of differences will lead to a collapse of their fragile personal boundaries.

        There are still many of us physicians and even some psychiatrists who struggle against these problems.

        • laeagle says:

          Merree,

          I tell the residents and the fellows that there seems to be an attraction to the specialty that will finally ail you. I have seen so many specialists who develop the disease they specialize in. To prevent becoming like some of the patients they take care of, I encourage them to develop other interests and hobbies. It is easy to get caught up with the pain, suffering, and problems you see every day, day in and day out. It is hard not to be influenced by them and to leave them at the hospital.

          I agree that most doctors do really care for their patients and are concerned for their welfare. The economics of healthcare is not driven by the doctors although they play an essential role. Expectations, healthcare provision costs, legal issues and associated costs, duplication of tests and procedures, and inflation are all linked to the spiraling costs.

          Not all doctors and specialties are asked to report on guns and seatbelt use.

It is a shame however that such methods cannot be used at this time on career welfare moochers, who have never worked a day in their worthless lives.

        What is a Patriot going to do? If we are attacked by the Feds we will fight against them, but if we are attacked by Russia or China. We will join the Feds to fight them off.

        Should the Bundy ranch come under drone attack, that would constitute a military use of force against citizens of the United States.

        There will be no turning back.

            Interesting comment on whether you are a Christian or not. My comment was not directed at you. Only to say it would set in motion actions that the government can not stop until it is Dethroned. A Drone attack which was suppose to scare by show of force, may infuriate many to take up arms.

Dirty Harry is trying to get as much as he can before the ball drops.Follow the money! I adjust trying to figure out if these bankers being Suicided is more mind control or propaganda.But the evil bancksters and there minions will stop at nothing to attain their goals they have control of every aspect of our lives right now,if we don’t withdraw our participation!

      The Tytler Cycle Revisited
      by John Eberhard
      03/14/09

      In 2003 I became very interested in a theory developed by Scottish historian Alexander Tytler, and wrote an article on it at the time, which ironically enough is now getting a lot of attention due to being linked to from Wikipedia.

      Tytler’s theory set forth a cycle that every democracy goes through, which goes like this. Tytler said the cycle starts out with a society in bondage. Then it goes in this sequence:

      Bondage
      Spiritual Faith
      Courage
      Liberty
      Abundance
      Selfishness
      Complacency
      Apathy
      Dependence
      Then starting over with Bondage

      Tytler organized these items in a circle:

      I was fascinated with this because to me it seemed to explain what we are going through as a country right now, where people are more interested in how they can somehow soak the system to get their free ride, than building anything. Clearly we are on the left side of this cycle, somewhere in the selfishness, complacency, apathy or dependence side.

      Recently I found an article entitled “An American Tragedy” dated 12/16/08 by James Quinn, a financial writer and senior director of strategic planning for a major university. Most of the article is about disgraced investment guru Bernie Madoff, but a good chunk of it concerns the Tytler cycle and exactly where Quinn thinks we are in the cycle. Here’s what Quinn has to say:

      “The following quote attributed to Scottish history professor Alexander Tyler in 1787, seems to portray an accurate reflection of what has occurred during our 200+ years of existence as a democracy.

      “A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.”
      “The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

      •From bondage to spiritual faith;
      •From spiritual faith to great courage;
      •From courage to liberty;
      •From liberty to abundance;
      •From abundance to complacency;
      •From complacency to apathy;
      •From apathy to dependence;
      •From dependence back into bondage

      “These words were written two years before George Washington became our first President. There is so much truth in these words it makes me shudder, especially since we are clearly in stage 7. An honest appraisal of our country’s downward spiral is necessary to begin the process of redemption. We have continually voted ourselves increased benefits, dependent upon the printing presses of the Federal Reserve to sustain our country’s ponzi scheme. We have pawned our future and the bill will eventually come due.

      ===============================

      I tend to believe the above is pretty accurate, because we can see right now that the US government under Obama-Reid-Pelosi is making an unprecedented power grab, by increasing spending dramatically, and increasing their socialistic hold over American life. The current Democratic Party leadership is the most radically leftist/socialist we have ever had. One of their recent actions was to basically repeal the welfare reform which was enacted in the 1990s, and which was so successful too. Obama’s new budget document blatantly outlines his goals to punish high producers because they have broken the rules, which is as Marxist a plan as I have ever seen.

      The question I have had for some time is whether this will continue through the entire cycle of Bondage, Spiritual Faith, Courage, Liberty, Abundance, Selfishness, Complacency, Apathy, Dependence, then starting over with Bondage; or whether concerned and knowledgeable individuals can somehow halt the decline and keep us from going into a new period of bondage?

      Clearly we see the American public being apathetic and willing to allow the US government to take over more and more of our lives, and thus becoming more and more dependent.

      And yet, at the same time, I see outrage and a building frustration by a large segment of the population, with protest events (the recent spate of Tea Party events), petitions, and a plethora of columns in the conservative press, decrying the power grab. Will it be enough? Can we prevent a new period of bondage?

      Looks like Russia is ready to attack Ukraine:

      http://www.debka.com/article/23874/Russian-and-Ukrainian-armies-shaping-up-for-initial-military-clash-over-Slavyansk

      If I was Putin I would be trying to minimize Russians fatalities, plus make it over with as fast as possible. Russia has superior night vision equipment. The Moon is dark on Tuesday night. This would be the best time to launch an attack, tomorrow, Tuesday night, or Wednesday night. I would do it of course near midnight. They are 8 hours ahead Eastern Time. So everyone should hear news of Russia engaging the Ukraines at between 4-6 PM Eastern Time, 3-5 Central Time, 2-4 Mountain Time, and 1-3 Pacific Time on one of these days IF Putin decides to invade part of Ukraine.

      Granted an invasion of Ukraine is not an Israeli attack on Iran, which is also at the right time of darkness of the sky. It is still very news worthy, IF it happens. Watch these approximate times as these are the best times for the highest Russian advantage.

      2 cans (3 lb) veggie shortening
      1 can (12 0z) lye
      2 cups water
      Mix lye and water in enamel pan, OUTSIDE, set aside to cool. Melt shortening, set aside to cool. When both are hot to the touch (on the outside of the pan) pour lye into shortening. Stir until consistency of mashed potatoes. Pour into prepared mold and let set 24 hours, covered. Uncover, poke it and see if it’s firm. If it is, turn it out on newspapers and cut it into bars. Put them someplace safe and let cure for 2-3 weeks, minimum. If its not firm, cover and let sit for another 24 hours, then turn out and cut. Use butter tubs or glass cakes pans as molds.

I told her that I was there because my wife had died and that serving my country was not a problem, if I had seen combat I sure as hell wasn’t going to talk about it and that the second amendment allowed any American Citizen to own a gun and politely excused myself.

      Report: Pentagon to destroy $1B in ammunition

      WASHINGTON — The Pentagon plans to destroy more than $1 billion worth of ammunition although some of those bullets and missiles could still be used by troops, according to the Pentagon and congressional sources.

      It’s impossible to know what portion of the arsenal slated for destruction — valued at $1.2 billion by the Pentagon — remains viable because the Defense Department’s inventory systems can’t share data effectively, according to a Government Accountability Office report obtained by USA TODAY.

      The result: potential waste of unknown value.

      “There is a huge opportunity to save millions, if not billions of dollars if the (Pentagon) can make some common-sense improvements to how it manages ammunition,” said Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del., and chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. “Despite years of effort, the Army, Navy and Air Force still don’t have an efficient process for doing something as basic as sharing excess bullets. This Government Accountability Office (GAO) report clearly shows that our military’s antiquated systems lead to millions of dollars in wasteful ammunition purchases.”

      The Army and Pentagon, in a statement, acknowledged “the need to automate the process” and will make it a priority in future budgets. In all, the Pentagon manages a stockpile of conventional ammunition worth $70 billion

    52. WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

      It has also been reported that the Government, to increase the Shortages of Ammunition Supply to the public, that they instructed the Military to destroy all spent brass and sell it as scrap metal, instead of selling it off for reloads or resale to the public.
