My Daddy's Common Sense

Is common sense no more?

Archive for the tag “gun control”


As stated above, I aim well. Thusly, I’m practicing “GUN CONTROL” and “COMMON SENSE” all at once.  I’m getting ready to buy a couple of extra AR 15s.  I have an older model but everyone who knows me knows I like the last model. New trucks, new guitars, new boats, new rods/reels and new GUNS.  “Is this a great country or What”? I work hard and I play hard.  I once heard it said, “that the one who dies with the most toys, WINS”. I might not win but I bet I get “honorable mention”.

This thing about “GUN CONTROL” has gone nuts. It is “plumb out of hand”.  Maybe it’s just the people calling for “GUN CONTROL” who have gone nuts or maybe they are truly just nuts.  How in the hell do you suppose we get control? Go out and try to confiscate them like some on the left aspire to do.  There are approaching 4/5 hundred million guns in the public’s hands. That is higher than the listed number because I know that no one ever counted mine.  No “GUN OWNER” with a set would ever tell you how many he has. I know for a fact that there are ranches in Texas with safes full of guns and ammo buried with GPS numbers recorded. Now, I’m not one of those “GUN NUTS”, no never not me!

The “liberal bastages” tell us about immigration that there are 11 or so million “illegals” in the country and always ask the question, “How could we ever find and remove that many?” Well, “COMMON SENSE” would then tell you to ask, “How the hell can we round-up and confiscate 4/5 hundred million guns if it is impossible to remove 11 million “illegal” immigrants?”  BTW, the guns are legal and the immigrants are not.

Like I mentioned, I’m shopping for more AR 15s now; but, haven’t found the right ones just yet. Maybe you can help me out here.  You see, all I can find are those ordinary AR 15s.  And me being who I am, I want and deserve a few of the special ones.  You know, the ones that will get off the gun rack, load themselves, go to a school, walk into the school, pull the fire alarm and then shoot the kids all by itself. Like a smart phone that would be a smart weapon.  And I have the smart phone so I want the same type of smart weapon. Please tell me you see the ridiculousness of my statement.  There are no such weapons on the market but you can “BET YOUR ASS IF THERE WERE I”D HAVE MORE THAN ONE”.

Now, having said all this “COMMON SENSE” stuff, I want you to watch and listen to Governor Bevin of Kentucky in this face book post.  Read my comments that follow as it is important that we all realize that this is not the same country we grew up in years ago. If you do not see that, then you are blind and you are part of the problem.  I, personally, think we need to change our culture and “PUT GOD BACK IN THE SCHOOLS” and in our homes. I know this might shock a lot of you but most gun owners are good law-abiding, GOD fearing people of good moral standing.  Let’s come together to change our culture of pornography to a culture backed by the “TEN”.  Then and only then will we see change.

My Comments:

There is a lot that is different in today’s world–kids spend time with a screen not with parents and brothers and sisters–for those who might know me personally, they know I have guns, use guns and this has been since a very young age—12 years old when I got my first gun—22 single shot–bought my first gun at 17/18 years old from Joske’s of Texas–on payment plan–mom had to co-sign the note–a Browning 12 gauge gold trigger hump back–still have them both and I’m 72–saving to pass on to my Grandson–every Sunday after church the entire family met at Mom’s for lunch–we interacted with the entire family all afternoon–we said “grace” before lunch although we had just come from church–we still say “grace” at our house before meals–grandkids are the ones to say it now–they find it refreshing or fun–it has become their place to say “grace”–how many of you can honestly say that the culture you grew up in has not changed–Think seriously about where we are heading and what are we teaching most of the kids today–we have failed the masses and we are seeing the results–BTW, I had a gun, as did a lot of guys like me, at school every day and yet no one was shot–let that sink in–all we had to do was walk to our truck or car and yet we knew better—SOMETHING HAS CHANGED—



Well, everyone should be happy as we have now found all the knowledge you will ever need.  Just ask a “teenager”.  CNN, and all the media, have just discovered this “river of knowledge” that we have been ignoring for years. Teenagers, as it turns out, now have all the answers to how to stop “school shootings”.  Now, “COMMON SENSE” would tell you that if they are that smart then we should be listening to them on a wide range of subjects.  They, the teenagers, have said they know about government and how it works.  They have said that more “gun control” will stop the shootings and that the NRA is “BAD”. If they are really that smart, then “you” should also have them handle all your finances.  Good luck on your retirement. They blame “TRUMP” for the shooting in Florida; but, who was responsible for the “SANDY HOOK” shootings, OBAMA?  This is just pointed out to make a point that the “President” isn’t and never has been responsible for any of the shootings.  BUT, remember now, this teenager thing is our new wealth of knowledge. BS. Like “putting a fox in charge of watching the hen-house”.

Let’s just look at a few cities that have the strongest gun control. Look at Chicago, Baltimore, D.C., or NYC.  All of these cities have been controlled by democrats for 30/50 years and have horrible crime ratings.  Whatever we are doing in Fischer, Texas is what we need to follow in the rest of the country because there is very little crime here.  AND WE HAVE NO GUN CONTROL HERE. I guess that is wrong because most of us have a lot of guns and we control them.  Funny how it works here but would not work everywhere.  I can’t even remember the last “murder” we had here. We have very few to no “home invasions” as everyone knows if you break into a house here you will be shot. And, I should point out, that if you come up any drive to “take away” someone’s guns you will be shot.

Let me run this “COMMON SENSE” stuff by you once more.  The AR 15 used in the school shooting did not go to the school by itself.  It did not load itself. It did not pull the fire alarm.  This was all done by someone.  Now think about this long and hard! Maybe we ought not blame the AR 15; but, blame the person that did all this. Plus, maybe, he is the one to blame for pulling the trigger. “YA, THINK”?

All the anchors on TV like to call this AR 15 an “assault weapon”.  It isn’t such a thing.  They talk about it as if they have knowledge of it; but, hand one of them a weapon and have them take it apart and put it back together.  They can’t! But, they can damn sure talk it to death. The AR 15 is not an automatic weapon, it is a semi-auto weapon. Just like many deer rifles. And I’d like to point out that I have had them since they first started to manufacture them and none of mine have killed anyone. If it was this awful thing the news people talk about, then at least one of mine would have jumped up and killed someone.

I’m not saying we shouldn’t think this thru and try to solve this problem. But rather I’m saying that listening to a bunch of teenagers is not going to get us very far.  Maybe we should try “HARDENING” the target.  Most of, if not all, the shootings are happening at schools.  What do most or all schools have in common. They are “gun free zones” and the shooters know it.  Ever wonder why they don’t go to banks, large business buildings or most government buildings, like Congress, to do their shootings. Of course, you didn’t ever think of that because it makes “COMMON SENSE”.  You would rather listen to a teenager than use “COMMON SENSE” and there in lies the problem. Maybe we ought to figure out how to spot those individuals who lean to the “crazy” side and put them away or take away their guns. But leave me and mine alone.  Now, who do you want to make that decision, ME? I will be “KING” and I will decide who can have a gun and who can’t.  Do you see where this is heading? Because if you will give up one freedom because the decision is hard, then I’ll make all the decisions for you.  I’ll decide where you can work, what you can drive, what you can eat and who you can love. “KING JERRY” will lay down the law and you will follow it or “there will be hell to pay”. I promise you I’ll treat you good.  Now does this make you like this “COMMON SENSE” stuff better? If you do not like this idea, then how the hell does it make any sense to listen to a bunch of teenagers?


Well, here we are again.  Americans have lost all hold on reality.  We have gone off the “deep end” after the horrible shooting in South Carolina.  It was the fault of one crazy person; but, the public is trying to blame it on anything just to try to make sense of the horror.  They have decided that if they remove a flag it will stop this from happening in the future.  Now, didn’t we let them install all sorts of “background checks” the last several times this happened and now we see that did not help at all.  I hate to say it, but we told you “dumbasses” it would not help. So, now that gun control laws didn’t help, let’s remove simple “pieces of cloth” called flags.  OH, BOY, bet this will do the trick, you “dumbass”.

The powers to be say that the “Confederate” flag is the problem because it represents hate.  That is total “BS” and they know it.  It was about “states rights” and the right to secede from the Union.  Now, read this very closely so you do not miss it.  The Union said the southern states did not have the right to do so, secede from the Union.  But, had they not some years before claimed that they had the right to secede from England?  They fought a war against the “redcoats” to make their point.  They did not want to live under the control of England and felt as if the states had that right.  Are you with me still?  So, if that is the case, and it seems that it was, then did not the “southern” states possess the same right?  The “southern” states did not want to live under the control of the Union Army. So, they fought for their freedom just as the 13 colonies fought England for their freedom.  This makes “COMMON SENSE”, I do not care what side you are or were on.  It is amazing how this “COMMON SENSE” stuff works.

We, as a nation, had better wake up quickly or we will be in another “CIVIL WAR”.  It is going to boil down to the same argument as before.  The more conservative folks do not want to live under the progressive tyrannical rule.  The liberals, as I call them, want to dictate from Washington how we here in Texas live our daily lives.  They just can not entertain the idea that we are a different people with completely different lifestyles from the elitist back east.  We eat differently, we work differently, we play differently, and we certainly live differently.  And guess what, we are damn sure not going to change without a fight. This Obama fellow does not seem to have the balls to fight ISIS; but seems to want to pick a fight with so many Americans that simply want to live under local control and local laws.  Of course, that is because he is an idiot which I have pointed out many times before on a host of different issues.  The “liberal fruit cakes” with this fool Obama as their leader know nothing about how we live our lives and they do not care; because, just like England, they want to control us.  All they really want is our taxes to help pay for the freebies they give the “deadbeats” which vote them into office. It is just a legal form of corruption and buying of votes. Ask yourself, what would happen if you offered to pay an entire group of people to sway their vote?  In case you haven’t heard, that is voter fraud; but, when the liberals give rent and utility benefits, food stamps and yes even free Obama phones to sway that groups vote, it is legal.  And that my friend is pure “BS”, but it is being done. They decided years ago that they did not want to fight a war again; so, they just found another way.  That is why they want open borders so they can continue to control thru the ballot box. I bet if the “King of England” was still alive today he would be kicking himself in the ass over this fact.  All he had to do was spread a little “green” in the right places and we would still be under their control today.  Corrupt, but effective, just like the liberal polices of today.

I, for one, have had enough and instead of living this way–I’m ready to fight.  I will and have started my fight with this blog.  I am trying to get you to think for yourselves and to use the “COMMON SENSE” God gave you. If you do so, then “COMMON SENSE” says you will join me in my defense of the “GOOD OLE AMERICAN WAY”.


Well, here we go again.  The liberals are all hollering for more gun controls.  They do this every time some idiot shoots someone, as in the recent California shooting.  It is a shame that they do this instead of confronting the real problem which is the “mental health system” in this country.  Take a look back and all the shooters in these events were known to have mental health issues or at least border-line as relating to mental health issues.  Most all of the families had tried to get them some sort of care; but, the system itself stood in the way.  Folks, just think about this, when someone goes off the “deep end” and shoots up any place, it is only “COMMON SENSE” that they have a mental problem.  The latest shooter, in California, claimed that he was still a “virgin” and that the “girls” did not show him “love”.  “WHY HELL, I WAS TOLD NO IN THE BACK SEAT OF A ’57 CHEVY HUNDREDS OF TIMES” but I never went crazy over it and shot the girls or their friends.  They just lost their spot in the front seat.  “A long walk home, they say”.  Tried that once with a big ole “Dutch” gal in a boat on the lake, telling her she would have to swim, but she threw me overboard and made me swim.  Never tried that again, damn near drowned!

But, let’s get back to this “mental health” thing.  We, as a nation, have more freedoms than most countries and that is the way we want it.  Let me assure you that if “we, as a people” give up our 2nd amendment right; we will also lose our 1st amendment right. The liberals do not seem to understand that they will not be able to spew their nonsense, which is protected by the 1st amendment, if we give up our right to “arms”.  Although, I despise the message that they spread, I will die defending their right to spread it; but, they will not do the same for my right to spread my message.  They have even gone to having the IRS target people like me to try to shut me up.  As you can see, it has not worked.  It only serves to strengthen my resolve.  Anyone ever hear of the IRS scandal in the Obama administration?  If you have, then I know you have not been watching the network news because they are hiding it as best they can.  The mass liberal media does not realize what protects their right to their chosen profession.

I am printing the following not to poke at the left, but just so they and you, the reader, can see a plain and simple fact.  It will surprise many if not most of you simply because you have never taken the time to research who the shooters might be.  And the liberal press would have you believe that all the shooters are “far right-wing conservative nut jobs” which could not be further from the truth.  I’ll not disclose any more about the results; so, you will have to read the material.  Hopefully, you will come to the same conclusion as I have as it only makes “COMMON SENSE”.

Now that you have read the facts, you should be able to decide for yourself were the problem lies and it certainly is not “gun control laws”.  It is the “mental health issue” and we must do a better job of restricting these people as in seeing that they get care for their problem.  By the way, just as a side note, the latest event in California started when the shooter stabbed his first three victims to death. “COMMON SENSE” would conclude that the liberals should be calling for a ban on knives.  That is “ASSAULT KNIVES”.  You know what that is don’t you?  It is any knife capable of being used in multiple stabbings and with a black handle.  Really, that is how stupid all this “banning of weapons” crap becomes when you extend it to its ultimate end.  Next is “ball bats” as more people have used it than any other weapon.  Think about this and see if maybe you can come up with a “COMMON SENSE” solution.  I bet you will beat the liberals to the solution. If not, then you have no “COMMON SENSE” and you need to look into the mirror because you are a “dumb ass” and part of the problem.

A final thought: after reviewing the above list, maybe the only gun control law we need is one restricting Democrats from weapons.


Did you happen to catch the latest flurry on gun control between Senators Ted Cruz and Diane Feinstein?  Senator Feinstein made a complete ass of herself when asked a simple question.  The question was, and I paraphrase, “Does the lady (now that is a stretch since she is but one of the witches of the West) believe that the same formula she is proposing for the Second Amendment would be acceptable for the First and Fourth Amendments as well?”  She realized very quickly that the formula of her and the government deciding what guns should be banned would then lend itself to her and the government deciding what will be protected by the First Amendment and who will be protected under the Fourth Amendment of “search and seizure”.   It was just a question for goodness sake; but, she decided to be offended while debating the issue. Sen. Feinstein said that she respected Sen. Cruz opinion and he should respect hers. That’s all in fine, but what about respecting the opinions of those in this country…she thinks that we all go along with her idea, wrong!! She “got her panties in a wad” and tried to say that she was being lectured.  She may have a point; but, isn’t that what honest debate is–a back and forth?  She had to fall back on the I’m a woman and you should not talk to me in the same fashion you would a male senator.  Bull hockey!!!  Hey, Senator Feinstein,” if you can’t handle the heat and it shows that you can’t, put on you apron and clean the rest of the house but stay out of the kitchen”.  If you want equal pay and to be treated like a man, then stop your wining, witch.

If she gets her way, the “Black Community” better be afraid of what is to be presented next.  Wasn’t that how the “Old Dixiecrats” controlled the slaves?  That’s right, the slaves were banned from having firearms.  It wasn’t a good idea then and it is not a good idea today.  They will tell you it will never happen but it makes “common sense” for the next step to be to control and/or ban guns where all the shootings are located and to ban guns from those doing the shooting.  Does New York City, Chicago, D.C., Atlanta, Houston and L.A. come to mind as where the most shootings occur? And, do the minorities of Blacks and Hispanics who are doing the shootings ring a bell?  That’s right, the powers to be and Senator Feinstein, who thinks she is a part of that group, will ever so shyly come to the conclusion: “that if we just take the guns out of these people’s hands in these neighborhoods then most of the shootings will stop”.  Do not think, all you Blacks and Hispanics out there, that they will not come to this conclusion when they see the “hand writing on the wall” that their total “gun grab” will not be successful.  She and the government will fall back to the position that they are trying now which is to limit just some of the guns.  It makes “common sense” that they will come to the conclusion that if we can ban some of the guns; then, we should be able to limit or ban certain people from ever having a gun.  Now, “universal background checks” takes on a complete new meaning.  Be careful of what you allow to be stripped of your “rights” one small step at a time.

All the “Witches of the West”, that’s Feinstein, Waters and Polosi, need is Jack Nicholson and we could have a new movie, “The Witches of Westwick” instead of “The Witches of Eastwick”.  Nicholson just thought he had problems with the gals back east wait til “The Witches of the West” get done with him.  I think he is already touched a little, but that threesome will drive him over the edge.  You all know I’m just having a little fun at their expense just because they are democrats, but you have to admit it is” one hell of a comparison”.  We should be allowed to entertain ourselves at their expense since they entertain themselves at our expense.  An uneven trade as far as I’m concerned, but at least we get something for our money because they do nothing to “earn their keep”.

All kidding aside now, this is serious business, letting the government decide who it will allow to possess a firearm.  This is no “laughing matter” at all, especially the minority community who better be paying attention.  No one should ever be able to stop you from doing anything that “God” gave you the right to do, nothing and no one, “Do you hear me?”  I know that crazy people should not be allowed to possess firearms (a medical problem); but, we should never ever stand close to that” slippery slope” of banning firearms.  It just makes no “COMMON SENSE” to do so.


“Come and Take It” sounds like a good movie title or a good song title or maybe just a double-dog-dare ya!!!  Well it is a good song title about gun control by one of our somewhat local artist, Steve Vaus.  We call him local because he truly has “THE ATTITUDE”. It is not his first venture into songs of political nature.  He has always been on the cutting edge with his music and is a “pretty damn good hand” at what he does.

If you have followed my blog at all, you know my feelings toward the gun control issue and the infringement of our rights by the government on many fronts.  He has captured the feelings of many Texans and just a lot of other people to boot.  It strikes a nerve with me and brings a tear to my eye; but, please do not think of that tear as a sign of weakness.  Better yet, understand it as a tear of pride.  The same thing happens when the National Anthem is played or a flag goes by in a parade.  You see, I have served my time for this country and was raised to respect “OLD GLORY” and to not allow her to be tread upon.  People have asked me many times, “What is it that makes Texans so proud?”  I tell them it is just bred in us.  I was “BORN AMERICAN BY FATE but BORN TEXAN BY THE GRACE OF GOD”.  We are a self-reliant group of people who will not mess with others and that is where the old saying “DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS”, comes from I guess.  It’s an attitude; the “cowboy attitude”.  Someone once pointed out that I do not dress like a “cowboy”; and a friend spoke up and said “oh, but he is one”.  Again, it’s not the hat, boots, jeans or truck, it’s just the attitude.

It is the attitude that Steve Vaus captures in his new song “COME AND TAKE IT”.  Enjoy and spread the news and our blog site with your friends and family through all the social media right along side of his great song.  After all, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to share something new and good.

Oh, how I yearn for the days of yesteryear, when COMMON SENSE was common.  Boy has that changed!   We now have the President and all his band of idiots calling for the ban of assault weapons; but, they do not know what an assault weapon means.  They keep trying to define an AR-15 as being the same as some other auto-assault weapon.  As usual, most , including the President, have never handled any of these weapons, but are now experts ready to tell you and the rest of the public what should be our policies toward guns.  And by the way, they are all protected by the gun.   There are armed guards at every entrance to all the Capital Buildings.

We have covered this issue before. And if you have read those blogs, then you know that all of the lefty’s calling for gun control are protected at some level by guns.  So, the point of this post is to simply, shortly and sweetly inform our readers of the true stats for gun violence in America.  I truly believe that these stats completely boaster the belief that guns in America are not the problem.  Simply by scanning the chart below, you can decide for yourself if the violence in America is due to the gun.  Of course, you can present this to a liberal and it will have no effect as they are devoid of any common sense to understand the message it sends.  We, over the years, have given too much weight to their intellect by trying to present logical facts to them.  I, and many of my associates, have determined that their, the liberals, brains are hard-wired differently than that of conservatives.  I will assure you  that if you use the info in this chart, which you should feel free to do, they, your liberal friends, of which I have none, will not be swayed, as facts are just a bump in the road for them.

To put some perspective on Gun Control.

 As you can tell, Obama is in with a bad crowd.  It is shameful that we have to point stuff like this out; but, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” when you look at his agenda.  He is moving to the left of center in a big way.  He will/has looked the public in the eye and lied to them.  This is not the first and neither will it be the last lie that this man will tell to promote his agenda.   BEWARE!!!

Notice where the stats show gun violence and then ask yourself if what they are proposing might have any effect. Did you notice that according  to the FBI that the baseball bat is the most used and dangerous of weapons?  If this stat is true, and we assume it is, then why all the push to restrict guns.  If you look and study the above group of friends that Obama has aligned himself with, then it may become clear as to the agenda.  My personal opinion is that he wants to sign a U.N. Gun Treaty so he can then try to have U.N. forces confiscate the guns.  My reasoning is that he knows the that law enforcement/military would not do his “dirty work”.

The old saying or “COMMON SENSE“, if you will, is “Birds of a feather, flock together.” So, simply look to how he is feathering his nest to know who he will flock together with in the end.


As you all know, I think “Common Sense” in America is in short supply.  The recent debate on guns has shown me that I am 100% right.  Do me a favor, if you will, take a gun, a knife and a baseball bat and put them on your table.  Let them lay there a while and then one at a time command them to move to the floor or across the room to another table.   Now, if you are one of those idiots claiming the guns are the problem, I would like for you to hold your breath just until they move.  I think we just solved the problem.  Now wasn’t that easy. Bet you, who know me personally, never knew I was so smart.  You see it is not the guns, it is the people.

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of folks on every T.V. channel calling for gun control.  We already have gun control.  You see, I have control of every gun I own and none will do a damn thing until I react, so the gun is under my control.  I have listened with disgust to supposedly smart people make complete asses out of themselves on T.V.   These are not all liberals.  There are also a fair share of, so-called, conservatives joining in on this nonsense.  Just a lot of jerks having a “knee jerk” reaction.  Let’s look at but a few of those calling for more control.  There is Mayor Bloomberg, Bill O’Reilly and Piers Morgan to name but a few.   I’ll bet you, if we walked up to them and handed them a AR-15 and said “here is the mag, bullets etc. now you load, handle and unload,” they could not do it.  If they can’t, then why the hell are they even talking about it.  You see, in their positions, they are only qualified to inform us of things that are happening in the news.  If anyone is going to lecture me about guns, let it be one of their staff.   That’s right, they all have staff much more qualified to speak about guns than themselves.  Does “bodyguards” ring a bell?  You see, they all are protected by the gun somewhere down the chain.  Every mayor in every major city, every governor, every congress person, the vice president and even President Obama and his entire family are protected by the gun.  They have all the protection they need but are against us and the 2nd Amendment having the same security in our life.  Most, if not all, of the Hollywood crowd who are on the T.V. ads pushing for “gun control” have bodyguards that are packing “heat”.  Just check out all the fire arms going to Hawaii to protect the President and his family.  All these people have protection of the gun, all the while, living in much safer places than most of the population at large.  Does the thought of double standard come to mind?

Bill O’Reilly seems to want us to register our weapons with the FBI.  As Bill would say, “You are a pinhead”.  If we follow his lead, the government would know where to go when they decide to move to the next phase–confiscation.   Piers Morgan stated just last nite that a semi/auto could fire 5/6 rounds per second which is completely false.  If he was knowledgeable of the weapon, he would know it is false.  Let me just point out to the tea sipper that we kicked their ass once for taxation without representation; and if he is not careful, he might get a dose of wup-ass over gun control.  Glad to have you here Piers, as you are somewhat a productive member of our society, and I assume a U.S. citizen; but if you do not like it here, go back to “Bloody Ol England” chap.

As this debate has unfolded, I have heard many ask and have been asked myself, “Why does anyone need an auto or semi/auto gun or rifle?” I would not think for a moment to try to decide for another what or why, he or she, might need any type of gun. Simply interpreted, the 2nd Amendment says nothing about “NEED”.  It says that I have the right to bear arms.  It does not specify any need or for that matter limit me to any type of arms. It is the government of today that is trying to reinterpret the 2nd Amendment.  As stated previously, the 2nd Amendment has served this country since its birth; and I, as a free American, do not want to see it trampled. I live out where they do not bring mail to my house; so, how long would it take for the law to reach me?  No thanks, I take care of it myself.

The gun rights folks are not trying to force their views on anyone else.  We do not care if you own a gun, or not. But do folks not realize, that by my owning a gun, it protects their rights as well as mine. Not just their gun rights, but all their rights.  All that we are saying is just “leave us to hell alone”, do as you please, and let us do the same.  I have been a gun owner since I was about 12 years old and have never shot anyone; although, I have used one several times to deter possible problems.  “Common Sense” tells me that I will never shoot anyone until they come up my road, yes my road, all mine alone, to take my guns.  When that happens, “All bets are off”.

As of just a few days ago, I exercised my 2nd Amendment right and bought myself a “JUDGE”. So, henceforth, you can address me as “YOUR HONOR” since I will be packing the “JUDGE”.  “HERE COME THE JUDGE, HERE COME THE JUDGE”.


It is horrible what has and is happening in America with all the mass murders.  Americans are harming one another at an alarming rate.  The shooting at Sandy Hook School in Newtown, Connecticut is but the latest in tragedies perpetrated against innocent victims in America.  Although no one knows just yet the true cause, it appears that the young man was a deeply disturbed person, to say the least.

The liberals, along with their lap dogs–the liberal press, are already out calling for gun control.  Will they never learn that it is the disturbed person at fault, not the gun, gun owners or the gun manufacturers? In fact, if you are going to blame a segment of folks, we should blame the far left or liberals, if you will; because, it is due to their policies that I believe we will find the root cause of these tragedies.

As I see it, we have raised a generation that is devoid of any of life’s foundations needed to progress through life itself.  I watched every politician on T.V. today ask for the public to pray for the victims and to pray for their families.  Even President Obama called for our prayers to console the families.  They and the liberal press called for these prayers all the while not realizing that they are the ones that have removed prayer from schools so the children know less about the power of prayer than any time in our history.  If you want people to pray for any reason, they must first be taught how and taught of the power of prayer.  We have no mention of the “TEN COMMANDMENTS” in school or any other public forum.  In Matthew 7:12 it is ,I believe, Jesus who says “Love thy neighbor as you love yourself”; but, our children of today do not hear this  nor understand the meaning.  The children of today have no spiritual foundation on which to build their lives.  You can ignore this fact; but, the chaos will continue until we make an effort to give leadership, both knowledge and spiritual, to our young.  They hear of the thousands murdered in the womb and you expect them to value life.  Just how stupid are we?  We, as a people, need to be more consistent in our views and teachings.  Now, I’m no preacher. But, I did grow up in a time when we prayed and said the pledge everyday in school and it served to help give me a spiritual background, loyalty to my country and to value life as well as our way of life. I had a strong mother who taught me these same fundamentals and all the while being reinforced in my school each and everyday.

This young man at fault for this tragedy most likely had none of the background that I grew up learning; thusly, devoid of the foundation to process thru his problems.  Just think if he had been taught and believed in the “TEN COMMANDMENTS.” He would have known to “Honor thy Mother and thy Father” or “Thou shalt not commit murder”.  These two alone would have, or should, have deterred him of his actions.  Just think for a moment—If we all lived our lives according to the “TEN” how great would life be, with no need for police, lawyers and courts.  Of course, the lawyers would not like that and there are mostly lawyers in D.C. making laws for us.

Folks, I have always said that the T.V. is the greatest educational tool ever invented and it has proved me right over the years.  What is on the T.V. is what our children are learning.  It is sex, drugs and violence and this display of violence has been learned.  Just as all the liberals want “BIG BIRD” to remain on PBS for our very young, our teens are learning from the trash on T.V.   Now, I know the libs will come after me; but, you can’t have it both ways.  If “BIG BIRD” is educational, then so is the trash.  For God sakes, wake up and smell the coffee.

Finally, “Common Sense” tells us to live by the “Golden Rule” of “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” and to do what is right even when no one is looking is a great way to live your life.  So get off your lazy duff, get a job, get off the dole, stand on your own two feet, help your fellow-man when you can and help a child understand that according to “GOD” they are special.  If that is not “Common Sense,” then I’ll eat my hat.

The U.N. to Control Laws in the U.S.

Yes, you read it right. The Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, and others in our government are at the present time negotiating with the U.N. to require that you register your firearms with the U.N.

Does anyone want to take a “shot” at what will come next after the registration is complete?  Just in case you have none, or just fail to exercise it… let “My Daddy’s Common Sense” help you out. Does total confiscation ring a bell? That’s right, they are out to confiscate our firearms.

It really makes no difference your party affiliation, or if you even own a firearm or not, “Common Sense” says that by my owning a firearm it protects not only my Rights but also serves to protect your Rights as well.

There are two things the government wants to control: guns and food. If we ever let them control the food, you will have to submit to their demands to feed your family.  Along with food, if we let them control our guns, then we can’t fight them to keep them from controlling the food and eventually every aspect of our lives. (Common Sense – why the current, big push to get people enrolled for food stamps?)

Please use the “Common Sense” God gave you and do not let this happen.

DIAL 1-800-588-4889 to sign the petition to stop this nonsense. It takes less than a minute and costs you nothing.

Now, go forth, shoot your gun, and practice Good Ol’ Common Sense.
