Will “Rules and Regulations” Save Us?

Personal, individual responsibility will save this civilization. Individual citizens boldly claiming their own magnificence

Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- “America will collapse financially, chasing unceasing rules and regulations designed to save defenseless citizens from harm.” ~ Bin Laden

As a panicked and short-sighted nation, we’re hurriedly composing endless reams of new, confusing, and hopelessly inconvenient “rules” with regard to school security, most of it “theater” and little else

Endless billions of taxpayer dollars are being haphazardly thrown at this issue. More cameras and monitors (that no one is watching), more restrictions on entry and exit, more delays, more confusion, more inconvenience, etc

But wait!

How do we similarly “protect” buses, sports stadiums, playgrounds, day-care centers, parking lots, movie theaters, cruise ships, et al?

With all this growing, high-tech “security” (which is mostly wishful thinking), is anyone really any “safer” than before?

Look at the UK, where cameras have been installed on virtually every single street corner in the entire country, yet where violent crime is at an all-time high, and getting worse by the day.

Bin Laden made a watertight argument.

What will work without fail, and the only strategy that has any chance of working, is: “Individual Security”

Teachers and school officials need to go armed. Citizens need to go armed. “Security” needs to be thought of as an intensely, exclusively personal issue.

The entire false, failed philosophy of “Learned Helplessness,” endlessly promoted by leftists, needs to be majestically, audaciously thrown in the trash.

“Institutional Security” is a contraction of terms.

Personal, individual responsibility will save this civilization. Individual citizens boldly claiming their own magnificence.

That will save us. Nothing else will!

Leftist bashes Mike Rowe for Fox News appearance. He exposes man’s absurdity with perfect response.

A fan of Mike Rowe’s lashed out at him on Friday after Rowe appeared on Fox News Thursday evening. During that appearance, which came on Tucker Carlson’s show, Rowe perfectly diagnosed the problems he sees in America today.

But his being on Fox News was just too much for one fan.

What did the fan say?

According to a fan named “John Ray,” Rowe’s appearance on Fox News and his “cozying up to the right wing” is doing nothing but “pissing off people who would otherwise love you.”

“I totally get that you think they are ‘furthering your cause’, but they’re not,” John Ray wrote. “All you are doing is pissing off people who would otherwise love you. I’ve been with you from the beginning, but this ‘cozying up to the right wing’ stuff is getting increasingly hard to take. And that includes the Koch boys.”

“Please, go back to being ‘just Mike’, so *everyone* can support you,” the fan added.

How did Rowe respond?

Rowe began by pushing back at John Ray’s criticism that he is not being impartial by appearing on Fox. Rowe said he never claimed to be impartial, only “partial to people who are willing to work hard and master a skill that’s in demand.”

Rowe explained:

Look, I get that you don’t like Fox, or Tucker, or Hannity, or Charles Koch. I’ve visited your page, and I can understand why you can only take so much of my “cozying up to the right.” What I don’t understand, is your sanctimony. Where were your words of encouragement when I appeared on MSNBC, Meet the Press, NPR, GMA, The Today Show, or Real Time with Bill Maher? Where were your positive comments when I had a weekly show on CNN for the better part of two years? When I appear on liberal platforms, as I often do, why do you never thank me for “cozying up to the Left?”

I welcome your criticism John, sincerely, as well as your advice, but please, spare me the whole, “I’ve been with you from the beginning” routine. If your contempt for Tucker exceeds your fondness for me, then you’re no friend of mine; you’re simply an enemy of Tucker’s. And if you can’t see the difference, then your liberal arrogance is no different from the conservative hubris of my many right wing pals who came here to tell me – even though they “loved” me – that they might have to unlike my page because I popped up on a channel they despise. Like yours, their threats are those of a kidnapper, trying to ransom an item of no value.

In the end, Rowe explained John Ray’s “assumptions are rooted in a fundamental misperception.” Rowe explained he’s the same person today as he was a decade ago on “Dirty Jobs.”

As for his appearance on Fox News? Rowe said it brought a tremendous amount of attention to his foundation.

“Last night’s appearance on Tucker Carlson flooded my website with scholarship applications. On this page alone, the clip has been shared over 16,000 times, and viewed by over 2 million people in just 14 hours. How does this fail to ‘further my cause?’ Moreover, what is the actual downside? The loss of a few thousand fair weather fans? Give me a break,” Rowe said. “I’ve raised over $5 million dollars for scholarships by discussing my foundation in this fashion, with a variety of people of all political persuasions.”
