    Default Want a good laugh

    The Hartford Courant is reporting that on Dec.6 a top state deveopment official sent the Freedom Group an offer for a 1 million loan at a low annual interest rate of 2% for 10 years-plus other incentives for the company to move its headquarters, with 25 top executives, from Madison N.C. to Stamford, CT.
    The department withdrew its offer on Dec. 18, four days after the Newtown Massacre, according to records released in response to a Courant freedom of information request.
    Man, that makes Malloy look like a true politician (hypocrite). What an a$@*&le.

    That's the same guy looking to use gun registration information for confiscation. I kid you not. He also gave us one of the biggest tax increases in our history but it didn't work because the State's revenue dropped. More taxes less spending and tax payers staying within the State. He then said the state must be friendlier to business. Say what? We rank 48th in States to retire because of the tax burden.

    I know, I live in CT and I am watching this like a hawk. There has to be some sort of tie between Malloy and Bloomberg somewhere, other than being a useless democrat. Malloy seems to be Bloombergs lapdog, or there is money being funneled somewhere. Guns don't kill just like pencils misspell words.

    The Connecticut Post is also in the bag. They have one anti 2nd amendment article after another. They pretend the supreme court did rules in favor of it. Also the editorials are unbelievable. The paper even pretends we don't already have some of the harshest laws in the USA. I am going to the next rally. His panel outright bans possession of registered firearms (if it gets put into law) and they WILL use the registration to go after law abiding owners. Those who registered back in the 90's and those who purchased pistols (the majority) owned as most could hold more than 10 rounds. The term assault rifles has been changed to assault weapons as they lay their cards on the table. To top that off any gun that doesn't fall into the ever widening net of assault weapons will have to be registered. Even a family .22 languishing in the safe for 20 years. They won't care if you don't want to do this because the last registration is being used solely against the legal owners as it is being done "for the children". When the next crime happens any place in the country they will use the new registration for another round of confiscation or arrests if your resist because they "give a dam about the lives lost". They blame YOU for those crimes.

    This country is full of very good folks, kind, generous, and in their way heroic who quietly live their lives enjoying their work, their families and their pastimes and aren't interested in politics or the doings of politicians. Many don't even bother to vote much less anything more active like attending town meetings or writing letters to their representatives. Pass another law and they adapt to it because they are law-abiding even if the law doesn't really make sense. Nothing new here, this has been true since before the country was founded.

    This characteristic creates the illusion that the general public can be pushed and prodded into just about anything if you do it slowly enough and fabricate some faintly plausible reason - public health, for instance, or "for the children". What our moronic politicians fail to realize is that these same folks can be pushed only so far.

    I've said for a long time that the social explosion, when it comes, will happen after some fairly minor act and the idiots who perpetrated that act will forever wonder what happened. After all, folks were conned into all sorts of things why would this trivial restriction create such a disproportionate response? One of the lacks in today's education is that fables are no longer in the curriculum so the fable of the straw that broke the camel's back goes unread and not understood.

    We are being pushed, too hard and too fast, and about the only people who really understand this and the effect it will have are the sheriffs who are elected, who have a very special bond with those they serve and are, privately, frightened at the prospect.

    Some author I read a long time ago said that there used to be two kinds of death: red death and black death. Red death would be where a person dies in bloody gore, painful disease, conscious likely. Black death would be where a person dies quickly, unaware, such as during sleep or some instant trauma. This author said people now are often going through a third kind of death, a gray death where there body or mind slowly deteriorates, alleviated with medicines, surgeries and numbing painkillers.

    We're watching a gray death of the culture of a nation, and of the nation itself. People become accustomed to new conditions. I've not boiled a frog but I suppose they become gray once the water gets hot enough. What was intended to be a clear, permanent social contract between the people and its government is simply being blurred away in redefined words, in a civics of uncertainty, in constant accusations of victimhood, in politics of perks instead of principle, in the politics-encouraged envy and self-gratifying consumerism of the people.

    Some, perhaps most, people will complain about conditions but will do nothing about them. This is true now and was equally true in 1775. Eventually, that changed and, although only a limited number of people (men mostly) were involved in actual combat, a great many more actively supported the Revolution with money, goods and services or, at the very least, did not get in the way. History has a habit of repeating itself.
