How Reagan Crushed Gun Rights in California

Armory of the Revolution

black panthersCalifornia was an open carry state until Ronald Reagan was governor.

Gun nuts and Republicans lionize Reagan as a staunch defender of the Second Amendment and the right of every citizen to keep and bear arms.

Most, however, either do not remember Reagan or are very hazy on their history.

Ronald Reagan banned open carry in California!

Reagan and his henchmen were all in favor of open carry until blacks started carrying.

Specifically, the Black Panthers.

The Black Panthers showed up at the California capitol armed.

OMG! Black people with guns! Almost overnight the California legislature sent Reagan a bill to ban open carry.

Reagan signed it.

It amuses me no end when I hear Republicans complain about restrictions on guns and in the next breath extol Ronald Reagan.

But it shouldn’t surprise me. Reagan is a myth. Republican re-constructionists have created a legacy for Reagan out of whole cloth…

#DemExit Equals Surrender

#DemExit

Armory of the Revolution

never-surrender

The American political system discourages minor political parties. Unlike parliamentary democracies, our system of government does not allow for coalition governments. Under parliamentary systems, the executive branch of government is synonymous with the legislative branch. They are one and the same. Under the US Constitution, the executive branch is the president, who is elected independently of the election of the legislative branch, the Congress.

Because Congress does not select the president, and has no direct control of the Executive Branch of American government, there is no ability of Congress to bring down a government through votes of No Confidence. Similarly, no coalition of Members of Congress can replace the president.

Under parliamentary democracies, minor parties can enter into ruling coalitions, bring down governments, influence government policies.

In the US, minor parties are political gadflies, ignored by the media and the voters.

A third party has never elected an American president.

Schoolyard Bullies and the Cowards Who Run Away

Armory of the Revolution

bully

The Democratic leadership is like a gang of schoolyard bullies who run roughshod over the other kids on the playground. Few of the others have the courage or the wherewithal to stand up to them.

And many just run away.

The whole school full of kids is not the enemy, just as everyone who is a Democrat is not the enemy.

But the kids who run away, just like the Democrats who run away, are blaming their fellows for the actions of the bullies.

Hillary’s corrupt DNC managed to prevent Bernie from winning the nomination. They showed their true colors as bullies, liars, and thugs.

In frustration, many progressives threw tantrums and ran away.

They started the ridiculous #DemExit move to leave the Democratic party. Basically, they ran away from the bullies.

The entire corrupt Democratic organization is held in place by bribery. Special interests, Wall Street, Big Pharma, Big…

Trump and Climate Change

#DisasterCapitalism #ClimateJustice

effects-of-global-warming-88813

The most delusional lie ever told is that politicians can impact climate change.

Campaigning on promises of saving the planet and making the world better for our grandchildren is nothing but a hoax. Last year, Hillary Clinton did just that.

We are in the Holocene Extinction, the sixth mass extinction in the planet’s history, It has been primarily caused by the industrial revolution (read: capitalism).

Scrambling to change to green energy, decreasing our carbon footprints, reducing greenhouse gas emissions etc, are like trying to turn the tide with teacups. It is pissing into the wind. It won’t make a difference at all,

And Hillary knew it.

Trump, on the other hand, doesn’t care.

But the effect of either of them in office would not change the climate or slow the inevitable destruction that is coming.

Neither Trump nor Hillary would do anything about climate change.

Hillary could not. Donald will…

Establishment Democrats Are Focusing on Trump So Progressives Don’t Focus on Them

Establishment Democrats are inciting the public over Trump’s immigration policies and his so called “pro-life” positions, but are silent as church mice when it comes to Trump’s Wall Street appointees, Big Oil Secretary of State, militarist Secretary of Defense, chicken slaughtering Secretary of Agriculture, or his wild horse murdering Secretary of Interior.

Establishment Democrats are hoping to create a frenzy of opposition to Trump on social issues, planning to divert the public’s attention from the fact that Trump and Wall Street Democrats are virtually indistinguishable on economic issues.

If they can keep the public focused on immigration and women’s issues, they hope to be able to nominate another Wall Street whore in 2020, disguised as a liberal.

It is to that end that the media is dwelling on the Hillbots in the streets, on talk shows, on social media, on late night TV.

Progressives need to focus on our primary goal: taking…
