Raging Against Self Defense: A psychiatrist Examines The Anti-Gun Mentality, By Sarah Thompson, M.D.

Read the whole thing…and this is a companion piece that is worth a read as well.

Communicating with anti-gun people

How can you communicate more effectively with an anti–gun person who is using unhealthy defense mechanisms? There are no quick and easy answers. But there are a few things you should keep in mind.

Anger and attacks do not work

Most gun owners, when confronted by an anti–gun person, become angry and hostile. This is understandable, because gun owners increasingly face ridicule, persecution and discrimination. (If you don’t believe this, ask yourself if anyone would seriously introduce legislation to ban African–Americans, women, or Jews from post offices, schools, and churches. Even convicted felons aren’t banned from such places – but peaceful armed citizens are!) But an angry response is counterproductive.

It’s not helpful to attack the person you’re trying to persuade. Anything that makes him feel more fearful or angry will only intensify his defenses. Your goal is to help the person feel safe, and then to provide experiences and information that will help him to make informed decisions.

Be Gentle

You should never try to break down a defense mechanism by force. Remember that defense mechanisms protect people from feelings they cannot handle, and if you take that protection away, you can cause serious psychological harm. And because defe

Steven Den Beste Lays Out An Optimistic Vision of Our Future…I Lay Out An Alternate Pessimistic Version!

Felt like it was time to repost as Steven Den Beste has the sort of quality mind that demands attention. If you haven’t read this the please go and read the whole thing. Also I have added some more information regarding the EMP threat at the bottom of the post.

Why is this dreadful scenario optimistic? Because it leaves out the fact that Iran…continued at the bottom of this post.

Sleepless night

I had a hard time sleeping last night. I was full of fear. There’s a catastrophe waiting for my country, a precipice over which it may fall. And if that happens, it won’t be recognizeable any longer, for the next twenty years or more.

I’m not talking about a liberal Supreme Court. I’m not talking about automatic tax increases on Jan 1, nor about sequester. This precipice is less obvious, yet far more dangerous.

I think the dollar is going to crash.

There’s a story told about a man who fell out of a window on top of a skyscraper. As he passed the 20th floor he was heard to mutter, “Well, I’m OK so far.” This country is falling, but hasn’t hit the ground yet. When it does, things get very ugly, very fast.

The problem is the deficit. Three kinds of deficits, in fact. There’s our cumulative national debt. No nation in history has ever owed $16 trillion. The second is the budget deficit, which has been over $1 trillion per year for the last four years. The third is our trade deficit.

The only reason that debt service on that $16 trillion hasn’t destroyed us already is that the Fed is holding interest rates down. The reason the annual deficit hasn’t destroyed us yet is that the Fed is “running the printing presses” (only they call it “quantitative easing”) to cover it. But neither of those is sustainable in the long run. The ground is still waiting for us, and we’ll know we’ve hit it when a T-bill auction ends up with a lot higher interest rate than we’ve been paying so far.

It’ll be a cascading failure, once it begins. When T-bill interest rates begin to rise, confidence will begin to fail. The rise will accelerate as bond purchasers begin to price in increasing degrees of risk.

Continued:
Iran will get nukes. Iran has practiced launching Scud Missiles from freighters. Great way to sneak up to a coast eh? Iran has also practiced detonating missiles in the area needed to produce an EMP effect.  A EMP attack by Iran would make the dollar collapse seem like a walk in the park. Some say that Iran would never carry out such an attack after all they are rational actors.

Dr. Peter Vincent Pry was lead staffer for the Congressional committee, and he, too, is worried that Iran could use a nuclear bomb to carry out an EMP attack — on Israel and/or the US.
“Iran openly talks about using an EMP to attack Israel or the US,” said Pry, who is currently executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, a privately funded US group that seeks to educate the public and government leaders about the EMP threat to the US. According to Pry, Iran is actively preparing for an EMP attack. “Tehran has undertaken offshore exercises using Scud missiles fired and positioned in such a way that they exploded in the atmosphere — exactly the method you would use for an EMP attack,” he said.

In an interview this past June, Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, executive director of the successor to the EMP Commission, warned: Given the current state of U.S. unpreparedness, after a nuclear EMP attack that collapses the electric grid and other critical infrastructures, the U.S. might never recover. The Congressional EMP Commission — that investigated the EMP threat for nearly a decade and produced the most definitive analysis of the threat — estimated that within one year of a nuclear EMP attack, about two-thirds of the United States population, about 200 million Americans, would likely perish from starvation, disease, and societal collapse. Iranian military writings openly describe making an EMP attack to eliminate the United States as an actor on the world stage.

Some significant updates to this post…

EMP THREAT from NUCLEAR TERRORISTS –STRATEGIC MOTIVES–

• EMP offers the “biggest bang for the buck” and could cause far more damage—and kill many more Americans in the long run—than an A-bomb exploded in a city.

• 9/11 Commission concludes terror attacks on New York and Washington were calculated not only to maximize casualties, but to damage the economy and for symbolism—all good reasons for EMP.

• Osama Bin Ladin and other terror leaders have called for “spectacular” attacks with WMD including nuclear weapons—EMP attack would be most spectacular.

• EMP attack is the only nuclear option where a single weapon could destroy the entire nation, and so give terrorism victory over civilization.

Tread Carefully…Ever So Gently We Eased Our Way Into A Nightmare!

Bob Owens has been on fire lately…read the whole thing. Is it getting this bad, well a lot of people are arming themselves and it ain’t because they are scared of Obama grabbing their guns. Take a look at this other story Bob Owens did on the troubles…

The Second Amendment of the United States was never written to protect hunting or target shooting. It was written by men who had just fought a successful armed revolution against the most advanced military of their day, and who wanted to ensure that future generations would be armed with weapons of contemporary military utility in order to stand against the day that once more, tyrants would attempt to consolidate power and lord over the people as their betters.

Our AR-15s, MAC-90s, SKSs, M1 Garands, Mosin-Nagants, Glocks, Colts, and Springfields are implicitly the kind of firearms our Founders want us to have, along with their standard-capacity magazines of 20-30 rounds.

Jerrold Nadler and his fellow would-be tyrants in federal, state, and local governments fear nothing but an armed citizenry, which is why the Founding Fathers wanted us armed against such men, who would establish a “monopoly on legitimate violence” to enslave us.

Any attempt to take the contemporary arms of military utility our Founders wanted us to have, which includes the standard magazines and clips used in these firearms, is an act of tyranny that the Founders would recognize as an event justifying the use of force to retain our freedoms.

Tread carefully.   via Of tyrants and dangerous old men « Bob Owens.

Kyle Bass Explains How This Ends!

How this debt explosion ends…btw anyone claiming that raising taxes is a good idea needs to pull out paper and pencil and do some math. Cutting spending is the only way forward and it is the only thing no one is talking seriously about. It may be about time to consider that neither Republicans nor Democrats have the best interests of the country at heart. Instead both parties are only interested in expanding and perpetuating their power by expanding the Federal Government.  It may be time to consider America’s Ruling Class — And the Perils of Revolution.

5:00 – “This Ends In War”

“We sit today at the world’s largest peacetime accumulation of debt in world history…you know how this ends right? This ends through war… I don’t know who’s going to fight who, but I’m fairly certain in the next few years you will see wars erupt, and not just small ones…”

19:00 – “More Social Unrest”

“You’re going to see more social unrest. You saw HUGE riots in Greece, and you’re seeing HUGE riots in other parts of the world over food (and lack of food) and those are actually derivatives of the financial problems that we’re seeing. We’re exporting inflation to some other nations. Goingforward it’s going to be a problem.”

24:00“They’re Not Going To Tell You”

“They’re not going to tell you [that a collapse is coming]. You’re going to have to see it for yourself. [During the Tequila crisis], the Mexican government affirmed they would not default, that they would not devalue, almost daily. The day after they said “we wont devalue,” they devalued by 60%. The government’s never going to tell you that it’s going to happen.

“Greece’s Yunker said recently, ‘When is becomes serious—you have to lie’. These guys are never going to tell you the truth, because they can’t tell you the truth. Their job is to promote confidence, not to tell you the truth.”

Wondering About Obama Second Term Agenda? Well Here Is Part Of It – EPA Regulations Put on Hold Until After the Election –

Senator Inhofe just released a report on what will be part of Obama’s  second term agenda! 

New Senate Report Reveals Economic Pain of Obama-EPA Regulations Put on Hold Until After the Election

Puts Spotlight on an Agency that has “Earned a Reputation for Abuse”

Washington, D.C. – Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, today released a new EPW Minority Report entitled, “A Look Ahead to EPA Regulations for 2013: Numerous Obama EPA Rules Placed On Hold until after the Election Spell Doom for Jobs and Economic Growth.”

This report enumerates the slew of environmental regulations that the Obama-Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has delayed or punted on before the election while President Obama is trying to earn votes; but the Obama-EPA plans to move full speed ahead to implement this agenda if President Obama wins a second term. As this report reveals, these rules taken together will inevitably result in the elimination of millions of American jobs, drive up the price of gas at the pump even more, impose construction bans on local communities, and essentially shut down American oil, natural gas, and coal production.

“President Obama has spent the past year punting on a slew of job-killing EPA regulations that will destroy millions of American jobs and cause energy pri

Mark Levin Nails What This Election Is About…The Only Thing That Matters Is Defeating Obama!

This…

“This election is not about Mitt Romney, as much as I strongly, strongly support him in this election,” Levin said. “This election is about you. It’s about your children. It’s about the Constitution. It’s about your unalienable rights. We take this election personally. That’s what Charles [Krauthammer] doesn’t get. That’s what George [Will] doesn’t get. I’m not saying this to attack them or be critical of them. I’m saying open your eyes and look. It’s not the Nixon-Kennedy debates. Everything’s on the line, right now.”

You Might Be Part Of The Extreme Right Wing If You…

Why is my government so damn sick? What happened to it? When did it go so goddamn dreadfully off the rails? This PDF file, Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States, 1970 to 2008 January 31, 2012 written by the Department of Homeland Security should be considered traitorous. Yes I know that is a radical thing to say about our once great government but when we start describing people as terrorists who are fiercely nationalist (as opposed to universal and international in orientation), suspicious of centralized federal authority, reverent of individual liberty we have gone seriously off the rails.

Extreme Right-Wing: groups that believe that one’s personal and/or national “way of life” is under attack and is either already lost or that the threat is imminent (for some the threat is from a specific ethnic, racial, or religious group), and believe in the need to be prepared for an attack either by participating in paramilitary preparations and training or survivalism. Groups may also be fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation), anti-global, suspicious of centralized federal authority, reverent of individual liberty, and believe in conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty.

So this is where the Department of Homeland Security has gone? We created this monstrosity to defend ourselves from another terrorist attack…did we consider that maybe DHS is a bigger problem than the terrorists themselves? Thanks again President Bush. You gave a Marxist President the tools to enslave us all. We all warned against this very thing. Sure DHS sounded good right after 9/11, but even then very smart people warned us of the possible consequences of a Government entity with this much power. They never realized just how right they would be.

From now on before we agree to create a government bureaucracy the first question we should ask is what is the worst thing that Department could do. If we don’t like the answer then the bureaucracy isn’t the answer to whatever problem we think it will solve.

Manufacturing “Unexpectedly” Shrank In June…1st Time In 3 Years

Nothing to see here, move along. So which politicians are sitting behind their desks thinking that what this economy needs is a REALLY BIG tax increase? We need to fire them…at least. The proper thing to do would involve tar and feathers.

Manufacturing in the U.S. unexpectedly shrank in June for the first time in almost three years, indicating a mainstay of the expansion may be faltering.

The Institute for Supply Management’s indexfell to 49.7, worse than the most-pessimistic forecast in a Bloomberg News survey, from 53.5 in May, the Tempe, Arizona-based group’s report showed today. Figures less than 50 signal contraction. Measures of orders, production and export demand dropped to three-year lows.

ISM Index of U.S. Manufacturing Decreased to 49.7 in June

Assembly lines may be slowing as consumers temper purchases of vehicles and other goods and companies limit investments in new equipment. At the same time, export markets for manufacturers like DuPont Co. (DD) and Steelcase Inc. (SCS) are finding it more difficult as Europe struggles with a debt crisis and Asian economies including China weaken. U.S. Manufacturing Contracts for First Time in Three Years – Bloomberg
