It was a time of the worship of the transitory and the elevation of drunken ignorance over the thirst for truth. Truth was a refugee in flight on a violent night. It was a time of deception and reaction towards the solution of freedom as an intolerable state and a non commercially viable condition. It was a time of precessions and regressions and a confusion of the moment on the doorstep of irrevocable change.
It was a hard time to live in unless you were one of the few who made existence hard for everyone else. It was a time of images and symbols that were wielded as weapons upon the superficial minds so inclined and submissive in a pornographic sexual exchange that mocked the true surrender of the deeper self to the higher awareness and all things human.
It was a time of debasement for the virtues and a celebration of vice because it was a time of political correctness masking the hatred for all that was good and real.
We were the people that might have been; you should have gotten in touch with us then. We were the unseeing in relentless persecution of those envisioned who were labeled a threat to the disorder of order. We were pawns engaged in our own destruction, proud and stupid and false.
We cheered in the coliseums and informed on our fellows. We raised perversion to be normal and locked normal in a barn. We laughed with merciless humor at persecutions that came by our own consent and everything that was true and meaningful within us, got up and went. We were the Hell-bound in denial of the heaven sent. We embraced the animal as the civilized way, cannibalizing our loved ones and killing ourselves, like a collection of poor unfortunates who gnawed off their own foot. We held what was trivial as a worshipful profound and we went all too quickly into the cold and forgotten ground. We made heroes out of rogues and pariahs out of our most important friends. We were the generation of vipers, ever and ever after, amen.
You will not see or I could show you. You will not hear or I could tell you. You will not be stopped or moved.
You will see perdition as the holy gates and hear the lies of your corrupted guides as they take you through corridors of the condemned up the thirteen steps. We would have served and healed you but we were cast out from our quarters as your neighbors and friends.
Into this time of darkness came a signal event. They called it 9/11 and they made it into a royal seal, like a lock on a letter for the eyes of the few who composed the lies it contained and who carried out the crime. You could not see the contents but you had their guarantee that all was well and legal, keeping moving, there is nothing here to see.
You vain and fatuous mortals you shall reap the indifferent wind that was roused by your indifference and nothing will be the same again. You dance and pray and celebrate the horror and the lies. You pinch your face and become solemn though you must be uneasy beneath and your keepers snicker and make jokes at your expense. You lick their hands for they are your master and determiner of fate.
You can’t get there from here.
You can’t get there from here.
You can’t get there from here.
We few who wait by a highway, we hold up the signs, “the bridge is out” and the road is slippery when wet with the blood of those you have driven over through proxy and malicious assent. You cannot hear and you will not see so you will be forced from both perspectives and you will be brought to your knees. A pestilence moves among you motivated by hunger and greed. They are the habitation of demons. They are the demons seed and you are honored and privileged to serve on their behalf which is the end of all of you. It is no wonder that they laugh.
They will not change. They cannot change they are the expression of what cannot be pacified or convinced. They are open to no argument that might affect profit or excess. They are the poisonous few in your midst. They pretend they are you and you are content.” (1)
Description: A re-edit and re-do of Les Visible’s “The Ides of Something Are Upon Us”, in the light of present day circumstances. One day, 20 years from now, people will be saying these words about us!
Specifically the testimony below concerns some of the critical mistakes we are making now in our approach to guns and false outcomes from so many snap-judgments after Sandy Hook.
“My name is Henson Ong ~ I am a legal immigrant and I am an American by choice… Thank you for giving me this opportunity to express my opinion and give my testimony in opposition to the majority of the proposed bills which do nothing to deter future crimes.
Gun control does not work, your own history is replete with highschool rifle teams, boy scouts marksman merit badges – you could buy rifles at the hardware stores. You could order them, mail order, delivered to your home. Your country was awash in readily available fire arms and ammunition. And yet in your past you did not have mass school shootings.
Other people have already expressed the question:
It was not the availability of guns that suddenly exploded or increased—it was actually decreased.
What was changed was societal decay.
If gun control actually did work Washington D.C. and Chicago would be the safest cities in your nation but it is not. They have the toughest gun laws and the highest crime and murder rates.
Now, some people have asked and called the AR-15 the weapon of “mass killing”. Well it turns out that there are a few government agencies which disagree with that characterization. The Department of Homeland Security has stated that a rifle chambered in five-fifty-six NATO would have with a 30 round magazine as suitable for personal defensive use ~ with solicitations for the Customs and Enforcement Agency (ICE Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency). Now who needs an AR-15 with the 30 round ‘mags’ – that question has also been brought up.
And I would like to put forward that had the Koreans in the L.A. Riots not had AR-15’s and AK-47’s with 30 round magazines, and Rugger 30’s – their businesses would have been burned to the ground like all of the other businesses in their neighborhoods. Theirs stood, because they stood their ground. I would like to also put forth the conjecture that had the 10,000 students at Tiananmen Square, not been unarmed, things may not have resulted in so many of them disappearing.
In your own laws, United States versus Miller 309 US174 1939 it was made clear that the type of firearms protected, by the Second Amendment, were those specifically useful and common for military use “in defense of the state”. I would like to note that the state is not the government: The state is the people. In Lewis versus United States 1980 it is stated that the second amendment guarantees no right to keep and bear a firearm that does not have some reasonable relationship to the preservation and efficiency of a well regulated militia. It has nothing to do with hunting. The militia aspect of the debate shows plainly enough that it is composed of all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense: And further that when called for service these men were directed to appear bearing arms supplied by themselves, and of a kind in common use at the time. The AR-15 is the most common and popular rifle in America and you … I will wrap up.
I would like to wrap-up with a statement from Judge Andrew Kozinski… “My excellent colleagues have forgotten these bitter lessons of history. The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way that vivid stories of gun-crime usually do, but few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision: one designed only for those exceptionally rare circumstances when all other rights have failed.”
A free people can only afford to make this mistake once!” (2)
And today “the people we might have been” have allowed this to happen which confirms what their next move clearly is…
“I passed a convoy of olive drab unmarked 40 foot tractor trailers each with four 10 yard ammo bunker boxes chained to them and unmarked armored Hum-Vee’s heading north on I-95 in Brevard County, Florida this past Thursday morning. The “govt” is positioning these ammo storage boxes, I have been told, in strategic places in population centers around the country. They are usually painted olive drab and are unmarked except for indistinguishable numbers/letters probably for inventory, routing, etc.
One set of images made available by Rense.com shows trailer after trailer carrying these new DHS and FEMA armored fighting vehicles, complete with machine gun slots. They’re labeled with the usual backward American flag and the title, ‘Homeland Security’. Below that and the DHS logo, it also reads, ‘Immigration & Customs Enforcement’. Joining those markings, the black vehicles with white lettering also display ‘POLICE/RESCUE’ on one side and ‘Special Response Team’ on the other.
Whiteout Press reported on the government ammunition purchases back in October 2012.
As we detailed in the August 28 Whiteout Press article ‘History of DHS Ammunition Purchases’, federal emergency management agencies are looking more and more like a military army every day.
The federal government’s procurement website actually lists DHS’ requests for bids to supply it with ammunition and military weaponry. All of the orders listed in the above article, including the orders for hundreds of millions of rounds of ammunition, are publicly available at http://www.fbo.gov.
One look at a chart of DHS ammunition purchases over the past decade reveals a drastic spike in orders of bullets recently, totaling in the billions of rounds. Other charts available online show a similar drastic spike in the purchases of accompanying weaponry by the Department of Homeland Security.
What is the US federal government preparing for? And why does it feel it needs an army of brainwashed youth, millions of guns, thousands of armored fighting vehicles and literally billions of rounds of ammunition, just to provide relief to the American people during a natural disaster? Any historian will tell you it sounds more like the arming of the Hitler Youth than an army of first responders fighting forest fires and hurricanes.” (3)
We have a huge responsibility to fulfill. given how far this place has actually fallen and exactly how quickly we must make up for the lost time: But it is more than possible because the government has thoughtlessly given us the gift of seeing just how stupid they think we really are—especially when it comes to their blatant-attempted-theft of our weapons for SELF-DEFENSE. That’s an outrage and no government here will ever force this past the people of this country.
When they did that they clearly crossed the one line of connectivity most Americans still have and that is the second amendment right to keep and bear arms for our own SELF-DEFENSE inside this lawless place!
