Venezuela, Part II

When I served on active duty in Vietnam in 1968, my Marine comrades and I worked creatively to get out-of-date C-Rats to starving local children, who were otherwise scavenging for food at various dumps.

We also got corpsman to come with us and provide emergency care for these same suffering children.

No media cameras showed-up, of course, but results of our efforts were dramatic and highly visible.

Isn’t it ironic that today, camouflage-clad US Marines and Soldiers, so piously and self-righteously disdained by AOC, Beto, Kamala, and Bernie (none of whom ever wore their country’s uniform, of course), did so much on our own, two generations ago in Vietnam, and later in the jungles of Central America, to actually save the lives of vulnerable children?

As military veterans, we take personal pride in knowing that smiling US Marines, Sailors, Soldiers, and Airman are the best friends these kids ever had!

By contrast, effete, aloof, slogan-shouting socialists watch and do nothing, as starving, disease-ridden, desperate children in Venezuela are now similarly rummaging through garbage-dumps in search of anything to eat.

We all know and understand that if US Troops were there, these children would not be starving, nor dying from treatable diseases!

You can bet on that!

Rioting, Coming To A Place Near You


For the last few years Venezuela has been a Modern day Socialist Cautionary Tale for America…Take Notice and Prepare accordingly.


“We are in the process of creating what deserves to be called ‘The Idiot Culture.’

Not an idiot sub-culture, which every society has bubbling beneath the surface, and which can provide harmless fun; but the culture itself.

For the first time, the weird and the stupid and the coarse are becoming our cultural norm, even our cultural ideal.” ~ Carl Bernstein

Farnam Quips: Who “Takes Care” of Me?



Who takes care of whom?

“We will take care of you!

You’re too stupid to take care of yourself.

So, we’ll make sure you can’t take care of yourself.

And by the way, we really can’t take care of you, nor do we care.

But, we still know what’s best, and we’ll force you to love it,

… even when it kills you!”

Definition of “Enforced Dependency,” sometimes called “Learned Helplessness”

European prisons, and now American prisons, are infiltrated with gangs of Islamic jihadists, who have “taken over” many.

They involuntarily “recruit” new “converts to Islam.” Many of these “recent converts” then become active terrorists when released. The rest become supporters/promoters of Islamic jihad.

“Jihad” translates to “violent evangelism.”

In order to successfully resist such violence, individual citizens must be self-reliant, alert, aware, and well armed/trained.

But, leftists (in and out of government) tell us the exact opposite!

They assure us that they will “take care of us,” if only they are granted the absolute power and budget to do so.

According to them, we don’t need guns. In fact, we don’t need to worry our little heads about anything!

They will take-over our lives, because they know what is best!

What concerns so many (who are reluctant to drink their Kool-Aid) is:

1) If we don’t “need” guns, why do they think they do?

2) Why are they so adamant that free citizens always be unarmed, helpless, defenseless, and paralytic?

3) Why must we unquestioningly accept dependency and impotence as a way of life?

4) Why do they insist our rights as citizens are “relative,” while their powers are unlimited?

5) If we can trust them to “protect” us from every bad thing that might ever happen, why do they keep getting “surprised” by events?

6) If Islamic jihad and other violent criminal activity are “exaggerated,” why does our homicide rate keep going up?

Leftists have no answer to the foregoing, and never have, but they vainly persist with their defective philosophy, and do everything they can (when their delusory sales effort falls short) to involuntarily inflict it on the rest of us!

Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin.

And, how do you tell an anti-Communist?

It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin!”    -Ronald Reagan

Farnam’s Quips: “Debate?”

The “Debate”

Capable or neither objectivity, nor intellectual honesty, our leftist “media” continues to viciously denigrate American guns and gun-owners.

The “debate” is all one-way!

In a cynically fraudulent pretense of “fairness,” they occasionally interview an ostentatious competitive shooter (who doesn’t even carry of gun), a clueless gun-accident victim, or some batty member of a fringy group of paranoid lunatics.

They never interview Operators!

Operators quietly carry concealed guns all day, every day. We have other, heavier guns always close-by, but never obvious. Our guns are not seen, nor do we talk about them. We maintain a low profile, and none who don’t need to know are ever aware.

We conduct our lives so as to make toxic encounters unlikely to begin with, short and unceremonious on those rare occasions when they are unavoidable.

Because we keep and handle guns carefully and correctly, we don’t have accidents. You won’t find the nonchalant and apathetic among us!

We “go armed” as a permanent and deliberate lifestyle, and we teach valuable gun-skills and correct philosophy to the worthy among our friends.

We have scant patience with clueless liberals, who are content to remain deliberately ignorant, and then self-righteously shower us with the shallow refrain:

“Guns are ishy,” ad nauseam.

These same professing liberals need to watch “Schindler’s List!”

And while,

“Nothing is ‘foolproof’ in the presence of a sufficiently-talented fool”

gun accidents are at an all-time low, despite the percentage of gun-owning Americans increasing continually, conspicuously spiking whenever liberals threaten us (as they are now) with universal gun confiscation!

We Operators will continue to quietly go about our lives, doing our best to be of good service, enlightening whom we can, but forever shunned by the liberal media.

We are preserving, advancing, and refining critical weapon skills, an invaluable body of knowledge, for the benefit of the next generation of American Operators.

Therein, we will not fail!
