“Assault Vehicle” Camaro tops 200 MPH

Have you seen this article on WND?  A cop with a radar gun clocked a Camaro at various speeds:

“He was going north, or east, toward Two Harbors. … The first speed that came up was 171, then 168 and then 143. When he went by me it was a blur.

“You get used to seeing people going 65 or 70 and what that looks like. But I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s like a rocket on wheels at that point.”

There’s a fun video at the end of the article showing how a Camaro can be tweaked to top 200 mph.

Fun stuff, no doubt.

Ready for my buzzkill?

Driving is a privilege.  Freeway speed limits are generally between 55 and 75 mph, with some areas going as high as 85 mph (if I can believe Wikipedia).  The only reason one would want a car that can go so fast is to break the law.

Of course I’m using the “logic” of the left here.

Let’s apply this to firearms.

Anti-gun (anti-freedom) people sometimes say things like, “OK, you can keep your Second Amendment, but you can only have guns that were available when the Constitution was written.  Sheesh, they didn’t even have electricity back then and we’re still trying to run our country based on stuff they wrote?”

These same types argue against the Bible and Judeo-Christian values in the same way.

If these progressives are so enlightened and their ideas so brilliant, why are we devolving, dividing, and disintegrating?  Things seemed to work better when we were still a Constitutional Republic.

But, I digress.

“They” say there is no reason to have a firearm with a large capacity clip.  That just makes it easier to kill more children before having to reload.  We counter by saying it makes it easier for us to protect ours when three masked marauders (armed with stolen guns (or Fast and Furious guns)) break into our castle.  Remember “When seconds count, the Police are minutes away.”

Our actions save lives.  We have a God given right and obligation to do so.  That some would limit our ability in this endeavor is anti-freedom, anti-liberty, anti-God of the Bible, anti-everything the USA used to stand for.  It takes away their control of the populace, and that’s what they want:  total control over all aspects of our lives.

Those of us who cling to our guns and Bibles, our thoughts of a once great America, and our prayers that we return there, annoy those in power and all of their little progressive minions.

So what in the world does this have to do with a fun Camaro that can go really fast?

If the maximum speed limit is 85, why do you need a car that can go 150?  Isn’t that just an attractive nuisance that promotes street racing?  And haven’t we seen too much death and destruction in illegal street races?  If we can save just one life wouldn’t it be worth it to only produce vehicles that max out at 85 mph?  And, oh my, that speed seems awfully fast, too.  If we went slower we could save a lot of fossil fuel and traffic collisions may be less fatal.

If it saves just one life…

Driving is a privilege.  Being armed is a right.

I’ll go back to the musket of the Founders when the progressives go back to the race car of the Founders, i.e., a horse and buggy.

Not saying the Camaro is the progressive’s choice of vehicle, just ranting… and a little upset I can’t afford one of those rocket cars, that would be a blast to drive.

David Kupelian Exposes the Left

This linked Kupelian article is recommended reading.  He skewers the anti-God left.  They break all the Commandments and scoff at believers trying to remain upright as they try to bring us all down.

The devil’s in the details.

ABC Republican Debate, 2/6/16

A couple of thoughts on tonight’s GOP debate:

On the subject of illegal aliens:

Too many politicians worry we may be breaking up families if we  deport mom and dad and leave Jr. here to fend for himself.  Jr. wouldn’t be here if mom and dad didn’t break the law to come here.

But I can understand their compassion… or is it pandering for votes?  It’s so hard to tell nowadays, with either party.

Someone needs to turn the question back.  It’s not our horrible meanness that wants to deport illegals.  I’m thinking of the folks who are trying to gain entry into the USA by legal means.  They’re going through serious bureaucracy/red tape to try to get here.  LEGALLY!

Why should we bend over to the line cutters?  When you’re in line at the movie theater or grocery store and someone tries to cut in front of you do you take it?  Doubtful, but if you do, I must ask why?

Line jumping is selfish.

I’ve cut cable so I streamed the debate online on ABC’s website.  I found it completely rude that they cut into the debate for some energy commercial right in the middle of questions, answers, and Kasich’s closing statement.  The same commercial at least five times throughout the debate?!?!

That’s just rude.  Does the msm do this during the democrats debates?  I wouldn’t know because I don’t watch them.  I know I’m not voting for criminal Hillary or commie Bernie.

Donald Trump, Michael Moore, The Kelly File

Notes while watching “The Kelly File” on FNC:

Hey Donald, refusing to show up for Thursday’s debate on Fox just ‘cuz Miss Megyn is moderating shows you to be a wimpy, whiny, spoiled lil rich kid.  You were on my slate of people who I would possibly vote for; now, you’re gone.

American politics has always been about debate and compromise.  If you insist on refusing this debate you show what a little person you are.

However, that being said, I live in California and no Republican, even if in name only, will be elected from this bastion of liberal garbage.  How in the world did Reagan do it?

You find the answer to that question and you may have a chance.

Michael Moore is still looking and sounding like he’s on drugs or spiked Kool-Ade of some sort.  Megyn better have an escort to her car.  He’s just creepy.

Without Trump we may have a more coherent debate on Thursday.

Donald may make a good president in that the USA is really just a giant corporation; he knows how to run corps.  But his boisterous, thin skinned temper tantrums may make it difficult to trust him with the big red button.  No, that’s not the “That was Easy” Staples button, but the nuclear codes.

He may treat both buttons the same.  Some foreign boss ticks him off?  Bang.  Mushroom cloud, no more foreign boss, and Donny reclining with a cigar and Cognac saying, “That was easy.”

I’m not sure who I’ll be voting for.  You can be sure it won’t be a Clinton.  Really, she’s still not in jail?  Or Sanders.  An avowed socialist and he has tons of traction?  Traction mostly from the young.  Can we forgive them?  If they grow up and realize the folly of their thoughts, then maybe.

Remember when Bill was running for his 2nd term?  (I think it was his 2nd term.  Was it his 1st?  Tell me.)  The motto was “It’s the economy, stupid.”

How’s the economy now?  Are you better off now than you were 7, 8, 9, years ago?

And b-ho wants to bring in more foreigners, muslim foreigners, to take more American jobs.

And that Chobani yogurt guy?  He’s pushing for it, too.  Uh, he’s Turkish-American.  Where are his loyalties?  His bottom line?  Profits over patriotism?

This country, a once great country, is being steered in the wrong direction.  Greatness is diminishing.

Diminishing at a speed that is increasing.

United we stand.  Divided we fall.

We’ve been divided into factions for far too long.

Remember the Constitution.  Legalize same.

And pray to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Hey b-ho, Shut Up

A sicko shoots many people at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, killing at least 13.  The bodies are still warm and our fearless leader, b-ho, comes on TV in typical anti-gun, anti-freedom, knee-jerk fashion spouting about the need for ”common sense” gun laws.

We have a lot, tens of thousands of gun laws, are none of those “common sense”?

The school is a gun free zone.  The shooter brought a gun on campus.  Law broken.

Murder is illegal.  The shooter killed.  Law broken.

Attempted murder is illegal.  The shooter tried to kill even more than he did.  Law broken.

How many more laws need to be enacted?  How many more freedoms need to be taken away from the law abiding citizenry?  How many before the big government, big brother liberals realize that the law abiding are not wont to break the law?  Sick individuals and criminals care not for any rule or regulation.

Unfortunately, this type of thing will happen in a “free” society.  Unless we’re all monitored 24/7, sickos and terrorists are going to do bad things.

I know early reports are often inaccurate and incomplete but why is it taking so long to learn more about the shooter?  A 20 year old male is all we’ve got as of this writing.  Is it true the shooter was asking the religion of his victims?

So many questions.  Garden variety white boy that snapped and went on a shooting spree or terrorist attack?

May God bless and comfort the victims, their families, the first responders, and all affected by this horrific incident.
