Mohammedans and machine guns

Charlie

COWARDLY NEWS OUTLETS like the collectivist New York Times won’t publish this cover from Charlie Hebdo, but The (Intrepid) Unseen Moon — from the safety of a mountaintop in the middle of Mexico, a country where the Mohammedan population is happily about 0.01 percent — knows no fear.

The crime here is that Mohammedans say you cannot depict Mohammed at all, or you’ll have your head chopped off. Something like that. It’s a really loving religion. I urge you to pass this cartoon along.

Moving on now to a second, and perhaps related, issue: guns. Due to some tragic shootings in the United States in recent years committed by lunatics, the collectivists have been screaming and fainting from the vapors because they cannot get the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment canceled.

As if that would help. There are already guns everywhere. The horse is out of the barn. The collectivists would also like to rescind the First Amendment, but that another issue.

EastwoodThis has created a backlash among traditional Americans, who make up the majority of the citizenry. Collectivists collect on the coasts where they sip white wine in the east and make movies in the west. And they elect dummkopfs like Bill de Blasio in the east and Jerry Brown in the west.

Normal people are flocking to gun stores and arming themselves. This is, in part, due to the collectivist attack on the Constitution. It may also be due to bloodthirsty Mohammedans moving into the neighborhood.

Imagine my broad smile the other day on finding this online. It’s a new firing range in Orlando, Florida, called Machine Gun America. It made my day.

For those of you who want a ranking of machine guns, go here, brought to you by the Washington Free Beacon, a very good news source. In spite of what Leftists would have you think, it’s almost impossible to legally own a fully automatic rifle, but if you go to Machine Gun America, you can let ‘er rip.

Cops on wheels

RECENTLY I spotted a maintenance man in a Mexican airport. He had a stack of toilet paper rolls balanced in one hand and a walking cane in the other. He was crippled and at work.

On a number of occasions, while in the nearby state capital, I have seen traffic cops in wheelchairs, something I have never seen in the United States, ever.

The Mexican traffic cops were wearing the standard uniforms, which tells me they aren’t some “auxiliary.” They were regular cops. On wheels. Impressive.

I imagine that being confined to a wheelchair would eliminate any chance of being a policeman in the United States. There are many jobs that the wheelchair-bound can do, but a cop is not one of them above the Rio Bravo.

America would give you a disability check before it would give you a police uniform and a pistol.

I could be wrong about this. I have been out of the country for a long time. America now lets women be Marine Corps infantrymen, so who knows about crippled cops?

Maybe if they are women.

The number of Americans on disability has skyrocketed in recent years. A huge and still growing percentage of Americans are “disabled.”  Simultaneously, it’s not uncommon to see news stories of some of these disabled folks surfboarding or playing baseball.

Sometimes they are distressed at being caught. Other times they just smile.

A friend recently sent me this:

The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this year the greatest amount of free Meals and Food Stamps ever, to 47 million people as of the most recent figures available in 2013.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us, “Please Do Not Feed the Animals.”

Their stated reason for the policy is because “The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.”

Obviously, the USDA is run by Democrats, and the Interior Department by Republicans.

Speaking of crime and punishment, I recently tried to pass a counterfeit bill. In my defense, I did not know it was counterfeit. It was a real good knockoff.

odds__endsI was driving through a highway toll booth while headed to Tlalpujahua. I handed a 200-peso note (about 15 bucks) to the young fellow. He looked at it briefly, handed it back, and asked for a different one.

Why?  I asked. He then said it was counterfeit. How do you know?  I asked. He pointed out some detail, a detail I never did quite grasp. But, more than anything, on closer inspection, I saw that the paper was flimsier than a real note.

I tore it up.

Notable was that he did not confiscate the bill. He did not summon the machine-gun-toting cop standing nearby. He just gave it back and asked for something better.

This brings up an interesting issue. A bank note is simply a symbol, a symbol of worth that the government says it possesses, and we believe the government. If you hand over one of these symbols that looks almost identical to a government-issued symbol, and someone accepts it for something, a meal, a night in a motel, doesn’t it have that value?

If someone accepts the symbol, it has done its duty, ¿no?

Mexicans can get really goofy about paper money. Many do not grasp that it is a symbol. They believe the piece of paper has actual value like a gold nugget or a silver coin.

If it is torn, often even a tiny bit, they will not accept it. This can be annoying.

Often there are just two options if you find yourself with a broken bill. Tape it up, which will usually work if none of the paper is actually missing. If paper is actually missing, you usually have to go to a bank for an exchange. Banks know the bill is only a symbol.

A few years back I read this on the website of the Banco de Mexico, the nation’s central bank:

If a bill has more than 50 percent of its surface, it is still valid. If the missing section includes the serial number, however, the bill must be 80 percent intact.

Try pointing that out to an old woman selling vegetables in an open-air market or even the cashier at Walmart. You will get nowhere. Save your breath.

Jennifer Rose recently wrote about the process of getting Mexican citizenship, which reminded me of my time making that leap in 2005, three years before her.

There are a number of requirements and, I imagine, those requirements can differ, depending on where you apply because Mexico is like that. When I applied, for some reason, the requirements were hardly different than those for renewing a visa.

It was easy.

I applied in January of 2005 and in December I was a Mexican. The first thing I did was go get a Mexican passport. It’s fun to be a Mexican. I sure don’t look like a Mexican-American, so I must be an American-Mexican. People are so fond of hyphens these days. Gotta be multicultural, you know.

I can vote in Mexico, and I do. I get lots of stares at the voting station. And if I’m ever on an airliner that’s hijacked by Mohammedans, I can flash my Mexican passport, and they will toss someone else out the door, not me. That’s nice.

If I ever get really pissed at the American government, I can go to the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City and tell them where they can put their citizenship. I have backup. But I have not reached that level of ire just yet. Electing Hillary might do the trick, however.

Even worse, they’re now saying that California’s Gov. Moonbeam Brown is smelling sweet as catnip to Democrats across the nation. Good Lord Almighty!
