Ann’s latest post brings out the cave dwellers still amongst us. Not all would agree with me that it is an excellent, thought provoking read, nor, obviously, agree with me that personal liberty starts right in the space one occupies.
I reluctantly accept the latter though sometimes my gag reflex cannot be suppressed. This, a quote from one “Buz” who read her piece – one of those who fits the “Breed you should not” category – “Ann Barnhardt got her widdle outrage on! ‘Then… he touched me.’ Wa Wa Wa.”
So… I almost got in a fistfight today (plus a repost of “Hard Truths About Combat Tactics” with an instructive cat video)
Talk about a confluence of events. So I have been meaning to repost my essay about emergency combat tactics, such as if a gunman walks into a church or auditorium or grocery store and starts spraying. I re-read my original piece and had thus been thinking about the concepts therein, and, sure enough, I was in a situation today that drew on that dataset and I was able to apply it.
I stopped into a church today intending to pray the whole Rosary (all 15 decades) sitting before Our Lord reposed in a tabernacle. I got through the Joyful Mysteries when a crazy man/professional panhandler entered the church begging for handouts. He zeroed in on me and wouldn’t relent. I tried to ignore him. Then… he touched me. Continue here.
I do respect your reflections on ability to change. But man, when you got your history on Wiki?
And you don’t look at backgrounds, vetting of politicians i.e. Obama? They all opposed now vetted by NSA and caving.
Question? Does biting and scratching get rid of fleas? Daughter gave Yorkipoo bath and placed on towel next to me as I comment. Been biting and scratching for hour now (Yorkipoo, not me), took a short break and now back. I’ll observe and watch for final result and ponder if that might help get rid of politicians.
WOOPS – OH YEAH unit – I DEFINITELY look at the politicians! I have a real curiosity (and sense of self preservation) about the DEVIL which is what most politicians are.
Regular people – I just don’t have that much left over time though I do sometimes. Here’s the deal about “real” people.
Working on a post I needed a question answered so I sent it to my siblings as a test group – I have lots.
The question was – what are the five things you are most afraid of losing?
I expected a simple laundry list but with teeth.
Instead I got the most revealing, thoughtful answers possible.
That is what happens when you deal with real people and it is exactly why we all need a weekly session feet up around a giant fire pit!
That way, as Leo Buscaglia said, we can discuss our personal definition of a word (and just one word can be a cause of conflict) until each participant knows exactly where the other is coming from.
Humans are complicated – politicians have fleas!
Re fleas. YOU obviously are not vetting any better than I. Didn’t you know politicians are born with fleas? It is part of their blood component. They can never get rid of their fleas.
And THAT is why I am all for allowing vampires to flourish!
Yorkipoo will get extra protection from vampires from now on. 🙂 I’ll ask Jarrett to lend us one of her S.S., not the one holed up with a prostitute.
I’ll just say that I have problems with dear Anne, but what the heck? I’m just a Texan. Now as far as the incident is concerned I’m saddened no men did anything. I don’t get it. Not that I’m the toughest guy in town … but I would have broken both of that guy’s legs.
I could supply a big bat!
Bats work! Reading the technique about rushing a gunman is the only way, if the guy is already shooting to disrupt his action. Some self-defense instructors might disagree but delaying will result in the demise of more people including your own.
I taught martial arts (Tae Kwon Do) in Ft. Worth for several years. Grand Master Won Chic Park was my instructor.
I had a contract with the city and over 60 students. I also taught self-defense for women. I won’t get off into a bunch of “tips” but different situations require different approaches. For women (and men) … being aware of your surroundings is probably the best advice I can give; and a bat.
I’m not a big commenter or clicker of like, but I did here. Frankly I’m surprised to read Wiki about Paul H. Lemmen. I’ll have to stick to what’s panned out for me. Never trust a liar or a thief. His website in February said he be terminally ill, be gone by July. Now God and good doctors have given a reprieve, so will keep posting. I won’t cast a stone and he hasn’t asked me for anything, but I don’t think I’ll listen to much he has to say.
It isn’t often that I look at people’s backgrounds. Flat out no time. Despite the invite of Paul H. Lemmen, I have not gone there either. But I know, so many of us have begged, pleaded, for others to open their eyes, to think, to change. It is important to our country. What I do know about PHL is that I have seen him on many occasion reblog/post conservative messages. Actions speaking louder than words. I’m good with that.
Reblogged this on Dead Citizen's Rights Society.
Anne and I don’t see eye to eye on some things (she hares me in fact) but I respect her for her boldness and plain old guts. She is a heck of a lady …
Her position on the Bundy Ranch was very surprising to me considering her own personal decisions in the last year but mostly we see eye to eye and I completely agree she is one heck of a lady. She “hares” – I presume you meant “hates” you. That must contain some interesting history!
Hetes is correct. It does. Google me and you’ll see why. I was a criminal and conman. She doubts my reform and redemption. That is her right. I continue to respect her and she is included in my prayers for she is a brave warrior for our nation. In our present national circumstances, personal differences do not mean a whole lot. National survival and resurrection of the Republic do.
“personal differences do not mean a whole lot. National survival and resurrection of the Republic do.”
Sadly, pathetically, I am far from encouraged on that front.
