The saying goes, “Be ready so you don’t have to get ready.” The Government of Denmark just advised its people to get ready and prepare for a potential war with Russia. What is the advice that they are being given and how does that jive with reality? Two court rulings have come down in the last week highlighting the criminal overreach by Joe Biden’s “AFT”.  First the prohibition against the pistol brace was thrown out by a judge in Texas. Then the US Supreme Court ruled that the AFT overstepped its authority by classifying bump-stocks as “machine guns”. We have a Tech Talk...

Did you hear about the “mass shooting” in Philadelphia? We are willing to bet that unless you live in Pennsylvania, you did not. You might ask yourself why? The media loves blood in the streets and they love pushing gun control, why bury this story?  How much scope is too much scope? During our Tech Talk from EOTech Inc we consider the pros and cons of high powered optics.  Does Gun Control make you safer? Are countries that restrict gun ownership “safer”?

From freebeacon.com:

MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders unwittingly made the American case for the Second Amendment during a report Tuesday on the political upheaval in Venezuela.

Anchor Andrea Mitchell introduced Sanders for his report by commenting on the surprising ability of Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro to stay in power, despite the pressure on him to step down.

"Not only hanging on but he appears to still control the military," Sanders said. "You have to understand, in Venezuela gun ownership is not something that's open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power and as long as Nicolás Maduro controls the military, he controls the country."

From www.sanders.senate.gov:

Washington, it seems to us, is focusing on one gap -- between spending and revenue -- to the exclusion of others. That's unwise, because these other gaps also pose threats to America and its social structure. They, too, ought to be closed.

Take the jobs gap, which doesn't need much explanation. There are far fewer jobs than people seeking work, which is why unemployment is close to 10 percent or higher, if you count those who would like a job but have given up looking. According to economist Laura D'Andrea Tyson, writing last week in The New York Times, the U.S. economy would have to add about 12.3 million jobs to return to employment levels that existed before the 2008-2009 recession blindsided America.

A quarter of a million people enter the labor force each month. At the current pace of recovery -- which is to say slower than slow -- closing this gap could take 10 years or more. Talk about a lost decade.

10 Famous People Who Praised Venezuela’s Descent Into Socialist Hell

Nearly two decades of socialism has left oil-rich Venezuela in an unparalleled crisis.

Recent figures show that a majority of Venezuelans go to bed hungry and 15 percent of people eat garbage to survive. The country desperately lacks basic resources, such as medicine and power.

Mass protests and riots are now breaking out across the country, as dictator Nicolas Maduro attempts to discard the Venezuelan constitution to tighten his grip on power.

However, Venezuela’s problems date back to 1999, with the election of socialist president Hugo Chávez, whose mass redistribution of wealth and financial mismanagement laid the groundwork for the country’s economic collapse.
