7:45 am - Monday - January 11th - Seal Rock, OR - 50° F, 82% humidity, wind - CALM.....heavy cloud cover today with rain later, and a forecast high of 53° F. On this date in 2013 I wrote the following Facebook post:
"Was the 2nd amendment to the Constitution added to protect the right to hunt with single shot firearms? Or was it the desire of our founding fathers to keep the citizenry armed against the threat of future tyranny of individuals, and governments? In the context of the times they lived in, and had just lived through, what do you sincerely believe their intent was? For Bill Clinton to ask "who needs a 30 round clip to go hunting" misses the entire point of the 2nd amendment. Have we come to the point in history where tyranny is no longer a threat, and we will allow our government to dictate what kind of clips we may own for our guns? For the record, I do not own any firearms, but if we are going to have this debate about the 2nd amendment, let it at least be an honest one without "straw men". Have we as a nation become so complacent, and naive that we no longer consider tyranny in any form a threat?"
Ironically, it is even more important today that we have this discussion, not only about the 2nd amendment, but the 1st amendment.....Freedom of Speech is in peril. Freedom of Religion is in peril....everything is at stake. We are now experiencing the tyranny of high tech overlords telling us what we may believe, to whom we may listen, or what we may read. Half of the voting age population has been isolated, and cut off from freely communicating our thoughts, and ideas. This is the tyranny our forefathers foresaw. We are accused of insurrection, of treason and are being threatened daily by the 'protected class'.....the rich, high tech oligarchs, politicians, entertainers.
