Dear Friends: I’m still here, despite my lack of postings. I finally occurred to me I do not want to be a one-blog wonder. Thus, here I am again. This will be rather short but there are many things to come soon.
First, my new (and first) book, The Time Given, will be published shortly – hopefully by the end of this month or March at the latest. It will be available from CreatSpace, Amazon, and, yes, a Kindle e-version is planned. This work is far from what I expected as my first expedition into lituratureland. Some of you are aware of my existing rambling manuscripts on guns, government, and grace. Those will come latter (hopefully sooner). I decided to write The Time Given on the fly as suggested by James Altucher (great blog at http://www.jamesaltucher.com/). It is a short, happy adivce style book aimed at helping people avoid certain of life’s little problems and how to not worry when things go wrong, despite planning. I suggest you get ready to buy multiple copies to give as gifts. You can buy as many as you like, no limits. I expect the price to be around $7 – 10 bucks. Set aside $100 or so now to help out old Perrin (rambling ain’t cheap).
An update – that completely Constitutional tax evil scheme know as Obamacare, of which I opined last year is starting to take effect. Paul Criag Roberts has an excellent guest analysis of how the law will rape the poor and lower middle classes at http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/. Check it out. No, Dorothy, this was not in any way an attempt to make healthcare more affordable or accessible. Rather, it was just an attempt to steal more of your money and freedom. It also will help line the pockets of our lovely insurance company friends. I am often concerned about their financial welfare, aren’t you. Worry no more, friends. A buddy of mine recently told me that his wife’s private health policy just went from $800 per month to $1,500. That’s change we can believe in! He can afford to pay it until she is Medicare eligable. The working poor won’t be so fortunate.
Droning on and on… We’ve known for some time that the executive branch claims unfettered power to use drones or any other weapons to kill dissenter..er..terrorists. What’s the uproar about? This keeps us safe. Don’t you want to be safe and secure. Jefferson spoke once of desiring dangerous liberty over saftey. What a deluded idea! Crazy founder. As for modern politicians, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D, VT), recently quoted the Emperor from Star Wars at the gun violence hearing, “for a safe, secure society”. He looked and sounded better than Palpatine though.
Speaking of GUN CONTROL! Through years of practice I have mastered control over all my guns. Have you? Really, you all know I have no guns – they kill people. My suggestion for common sense gun control is this: 1) Abolish the Imperial federal government in its entirety; 2) disarm all state and local law enforcement officers (except, perhaps the county sheriff); 3) let’s all arm up with modern weapons (those who have not already); 4) let’s all be responsible with those weapons; and 5) ala Rodney King – let’s just all get along. This is a re-post from FB.
If we have armed teachers, staff, and parents in and out of our schools, then crazy people and government agent provocateurs will have less incentive to attack the schools. And, if they do, they can be shot down before they can commit a massacre. I made this same point regarding airplane security at the Federalist Society national convention in 2001, just after 9/11. At the time I was still under the delusion Fed-Soc was a libertarian organization. Ha! At any rate, you can see how well me suggestion was received by the government. By the way, they can see your “junk” at security stations – while, they irradiate you. If you like, they will just sexually molest you instead. This, you see, makes us safe from CIA recrutied nuts with pocket knives. Not sure how it would stop a muscular nut from taking a plane or how it would halt a S.A.M. Oh well…
- (This little ATM robot thing keeps kids safe at my daughter’s school. I suppose it would actively engage and kill a shooter.)
Many other thoughts to come. Can you believe it’s going to snow in New England!? Wow. And how about all the Illuminati symbolism at the Stupor Bowl! Etc…
