This had to be the stupidest decision and reaction ever. From time of announcement to police response.

Yup Abe, we know how you feel.

Yup Abe, we know how you feel.

Is Anyone surprised? 

I’m done caring and trying to help. True colors were shown tonight,
Anyone else kinda wonder where the so called “Police,  Fire” National Guard” were? All I saw was looting and burning, Law enforcement was ineffectual  at best, complicit at least.
Weep with me as America burns. Oh and while where at it let’s brush up on our
“Rules For A Gunfight”
1. Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns.
2. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap – life is expensive.
3. Only hits count. The only thing worse than a miss is a slow miss.
4. If your shooting stance is good, you’re probably not moving fast enough or using cover correctly.
5. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral and diagonal movement are preferred.)
6. If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a long gun and a friend with a long gun.
7. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
8. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating, reloading, and running.
9. Accuracy is relative: most combat shooting standards will be more dependent on “pucker factor” than the inherent accuracy of the gun. Use a gun that works EVERY TIME. “All skill is in vain when an Angel blows the powder from the flintlock of your musket.”
10. Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.
11. Always cheat, always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
12. Have a plan.
13. Have a back-up plan, because the first one won’t work.
14. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
15. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
16. Don’t drop your guard.
17. Always tactical load and threat scan 360 degrees.
18. Watch their hands. Hands kill. (In God we trust. Everyone else, keep your hands where I can see them.)
19. Decide to be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH.
20. The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.
21. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
22. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
23. Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
24. Do not attend a gun fight with a handgun, the caliber of which does not start with anything smaller than “4″.
25. You can’t miss fast enough to win.

  1. I think that is the Marines rules… but good advice…

  2. Reblogged this on ForThoseILove and commented:
    Nikes and Auto Parts on their Christmas List. As if their going to heaven.

  3. One of the best political cartoons by Bill Mauldin. It’s still relevant. Sad.

  4. I can’t believe these ignorant Blacks don’t realize how STUPID their rioting is making them look. And THEY’RE SAYING “THIS IS JUSTICE”? If they believe that,they’re too stupid to be allowed to live in the US. They’re proving correct every stereotype there is about young Black street punks. MLK is probably spinning like a turbine in his grave.

    • truckjunkie,, What I write here is my opinion only. Not endorsed by FOTM.
      That’s kinda what I’m going for here. America has changed. I have changed. I grew up in NY in the 1970’s. Trust me it was a very racially charged era.
      There is no White racism. It is a farce. Here’s proof. Remember the idiot Donald Sterling basketball owner? Some dumb racist remark, and condemned by 200 million white people. That and the fact we have elected obama potus twice tells me there is no racism.
      So with the actions of those yesterday, and to listen to those who will not listen to any evidence to the contrary tells me there is such ingrained hatred toward white people. It’s like arguing with a liberal.. The mindset of most black people to me is like a mental disorder.
      Going forward I am done. I could care less about the disproportionate crime rates. Abortion Rates. Out of wedlock rates. Poverty rates. Unemployment rates.
      I’ve done posts trying to point out these inequities were directly correlated to policies set in motion by the Democrat Party.
      If they want to stay chained on the plantation so be it.
      I Am Done. I Rescind My Hand.
      Black America You Just bit the hand that has tried to help you for 40 years.
      R.I.P. Mike Brown.
      R.I.P. Race Relations.

      • It’s unfortunate Steve, but many blacks have the ‘crabs in the barrel’ mentality and the ones rioting and looting are exactly those…except they are pulling down ferguson (and other cities that follow suit) as well….
        These fools don’t represent all black people, so keep that in mind. Remember, not everyone is meant to go to heaven, but if you manage to reach anyone and change their hearts through your words then you have made a difference. In regards to ferguson…the devil is smiling. Don’t give up Christian warrior.

        • Mom, I’m not giving up. Just rescinding my hand. It will be offered if and when it is requested. Tired of sticking it out and having it smacked back. I’ll keep it in my pocket until those that may rise out of these ashes may wish it. I have not changed. Black America has. And it better damn well find it’s bearing. It breaks my heart Mom to watch an entire race of people go over a cliff.

  5. Because the above rules are still lacking:
    Rule 1a: If you didn’t bring a gun, stall & wait for the gunner to run out of ammo, be familiar with the make and model you are facing, and know it’s capacity, as well as any potential for expanded magazines.
    1b: If you don’t have a gun, Have a knife or similar bladed weapon, blades don’t have an ammo limitation.
    1c: If you do have a gun, Have a knife or similar bladed weapon, guns are useless without ammo.
    26. Anyone reloading is vulnerable for the duration it takes to reload.
    27. Know some kind of hand-to-hand combat.
    28. The more ammo they waste, the better.
    I would repeal the first part of rule 11, cheating is for chumps, & isn’t Christian, and replace it with “be aware your adversary will cheat, know the tricks, and countermeasures to those tricks.”
    Aside from this, one wonders, since the bundy ranch thing didn’t go as “they” plannned, is the ferguson thing meant to be a trigger incident to lead to civil war, or is another trial run?

    • Seumas, Rule 1. If you did not bring a gun YOU ARE DEAD. End of story.
      No more rules.

      • Steve, as I recall… Custer had guns, but you know how that went. We should remember that Rule 0 is “An idiot with a gun, is still an idiot”, and the gun does not better their chances of avoiding the consequences of being such. Suffice it to say we have different opinions when it comes to this subject.
        Speaking of which, it seems ferguson has blown up, as regrettably expected. That’s a lot of idiots with guns (on both sides) and it won’t end well.

        • Seumas, The Indians were well armed also. Custer was a fool for attacking. As you say “lot’s of idiots with guns” on that we agree. 🙂

  6. Maybe this is a completely naïve remark, but I cannot help but think back to when I was just out of college. I joined a religious service corps and taught in poor urban areas for two years. I wanted to help these kids, I even wrote grants to get them opportunities for education on the weekends. In the cities I was in, the school systems were so corrupt, with lazy, crooked administrators who cared naught about the education of the kids and their test scores.
    As they exited high school, the kids knew their lifelong plan for getting free food, housing, and “crazy checks” (disability). This was in the 90s–nothing has changed.
    Okay, so here is my point.
    I wish I saw one eighth of the passion seen over this incident, about young blacks being chained by lack of education, and TAKING REVENGE ON THE EMPTY WORLD OF TOMORROW.
    I am done caring, too, by the way. DONE!

    • Lola, kinda leaves a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach doesn’t it?
      As a human being with empathy, maybe that’s the problem. Maybe they just have never been taught empathy for anything or anyone.
      Now America is ready to turn it’s back and walk away.
      They have no idea of the shitstorm and backlash I think they just opened up.
      I have no idea how this turns out, but I don’t think it will be good.

      • Agree completely !

      • In my 45 years of dealing with the negro race, I have found almost always thy have no idea of or use for empathy, they have little or no impulse control, they act on animal instincts, it’s all about them them THEM and in their negro mind anyone is not black is da debbil and fair game. I found the females to be no different than males even their females have higher testosterone levels then white men. makes me wonder if this is why the ancient Egyptians castrated negro males taken as slaves
        I used to be much more liberal in this area and after decades of being nice, helping them out, sharing my time and skills they still were the most ungrateful species/race I had met to the point of being hostile, throwing out that totally felonious term “white privilege”
        I have met n rare occasion a few blacks who were not at all like the jungle savage herd but most of them were rejected and ridiculed by their race called uncle tom and oreos

  7. One true statement . . . “you cannot help people who refuse to be helped.’ What happens when stores who have felt the brunt of anger over this affair decide to leave the area? I’ll tell you what, the old people who don’t have a car available for their use, get on the bus, or several buses to travel to an area that does have stores that sell what they want. I have seen this very scenario here in Portland, Oregon. There was a nice Fred Meyer store (groceries, clothes, drugs) in the middle of NE Portland, which has a high African-American population; but, because the shoplifting rate was so high–they closed the store, and sold the land. Now you have a community policing office. Now I see feeble elderly people waiting for the bus, or at transfer points waiting for buses to carry themselves and their grocery carts to their homes. Who really gets H-U-R-T with all the burnin’ and smashin? It’s individuals who had nothing to do with the lawlessness. The punks that are perpetrating this just need to all be sent to an island, where they could run things any googy way they wanted. It’s a wonder to me that individuals are truly so stupid–when it has been said by the persons who were actually at the Grand Jury proceeds–the majority of witnesses who testified that Mr Brown was going after the office were predominately African-American. Does this mean that the African-American community does not believe what other African-Americans say, if it is contrary to what they want to have said??? Something is wrong with that mentality!!!

    • my guess, the “protestors” participating in the rioting and looting were probably part of the prison early release program.
