You Have No Means For Self-Defense

The most efficient tool for personal self defense is a weapon.  The most efficient weapon is the gun.  Every able-bodied person, of sound mind, in the world should own one.  It doesn't matter whether your government says or has laws against you owning one.  Most people in the world are slaves as they have no way to defend themselves and must obey their master/government.  Governments disarm their citizens because they are afraid of them as they (and they know) are lousy, greedy, power hungry, elitist, psychotic leaders.  These leaders believe that they have the right to do what they want to their subjects.  I call you subjects because only in a free country are there citizens.
Are you afraid of your government?  You should be, as in the last century, governments, after disarming their citizens, murdered 170,000,000 of you.  More of you are killed by your government than all the enemies in all the wars.  If most of the criminals in your countries can obtain guns, despite all the laws, why can't you?  Criminals are smarter than most as they don't tell the government that they have guns.  Why would you?   The irony is that the educated people should know better but they either do nothing or feel secure, but they are the ones in the most danger.  "It can't happen to me.  I'm educated."  Cambodia, 1975-1979.  "During that time, about 1.5 million Cambodians out of a total population of 7 to 8 million died of starvation, execution, disease or overwork. ... The Khmer Rouge, in their attempt to socially engineer a classless peasant society, took particular aim at intellectuals, city residents, ethnic Vietnamese, civil servants and religious leaders."  (Source:  http://www.history.com/topics/pol-pot).  Isn't that what the American and most European governments are trying to do today?  Attempting to socially engineer a new society?   Muslim jihadists are trying to send you back to the 7th century.  Should be "fun" times.

Sometimes I Am.

Why do I say that sometimes I am?  With followers from 58 foreign countries I think it's time that I pay more attention to ideas that will enhance freedom and safety not only for my countrymen but also yours.  I would appreciate your ideas, comments and suggestions whether focusing on yourself, your specific country or in general for all of us.  Pejorative remarks or statements, of course, will be deleted.  Again my apology for my past transgression and pray that we can help each other towards a more free and safe world.  Thank You.

You Don't Know What Stealing Is.

Pennsylvania Law:  "theft of lost property."  (where the defendant fails to try to return the lost property to its rightful owner).  Most states have the same or similar laws.
A few months back my son lost his cell phone.  He was able to trace it to an affluent street in Philadelphia but could not pin-point the exact house as then the phone was probably turned off.  As a college student it was a major loss as he had to replace it with another at a cost of $400.00.
The finder probably using the excuse that "finders keepers, losers weepers" knows or is ignorant of the fact that that old saying is not true.
The finder could have easily found the owner merely by calling any of the phone numbers listed on said phone.  Obviously anyone owning these numbers knows my son or he wouldn't have their number listed as contacts.
Or just as easily turn the phone into the nearest police station where an officer would have called any of the numbers listed on the phone to easily trace the owner.
The finder, who lives on an affluent street, most likely has a lot more money than a struggling college student and through his arrogance and lack of empathy feels that he had a windfall and bragged to his family and friends of his good luck.  Obviously his family and friends are just as ignorant as he and/or were afraid to tell him that he was now a criminal.  Being of the same mindset, i.e., ignorant, stupid and cowards.

    You Leave Your Keys in the Ignition

    "Many auto thefts are crimes of 'opportunity.' Leaving the keys in your car (even a 'hidden' spare key) greatly increases your chances of having your car stolen. Leaving your vehicle unoccupied with the engine running, even for a minute, is illegal in itself; but it greatly increases the chance that your car will be stolen. It is truly a helpless feeling to watch your car being driven away by a total stranger as you stand 10 feet away at an ATM or mailbox. Take your keys with you even for quick trips. Needless to say, this is especially true if you have children or pets in the vehicle."

    You Hog The Road On Mountain Passes

    My wife and I, today, drove from Durango to Grand Junction, CO.  Although most drivers we encountered were cautious and seemed like good mountain drivers, others were not.  While driving on the cliff side, no shoulder, no guard rails, drivers approaching who were on the mountain side hugged and sometimes crossed the double yellow lines around curves.  This gave us cliff side drivers no room for error.  Some of the cliff side road was somewhat undermined or came into the road.  So sometimes we had even less than "no shoulder".  If you had a brain you'd know that it's far less dangerous scrapping the side of the hill than making the oncoming car drop 300-500 feet down into the canyon below.  So if the hill is on your side favor the white line on your right so those coming in the opposite direction, cliff side, can favor the center line.  Three other dangerous situations we encountered was the car passing us in a no passing zone, another tailgating us and several cars , at one point, swerving into my lane to avoid hitting several small rocks on the roadway in their lane.  Where did they expect us to go, over the cliff so they don't hit small rocks?  Stay in your lane and adjust your speed so you can stop for any obstructions.  Just stay out of the cliff-side lane until it's clear of cars.
    Coming back, going South, was a bit less disconcerting as more of the time we were on the hill side instead of the cliff side.

    You Don't Love Freedom

    As a freedom lover watching the decline of freedom in my country, the United States of America, it is difficult for me to understand it when many brave people throughout the world are fighting so hard to preserve or gain theirs.  The Ukraine today and Egypt last year comes to mind.  Other former stalwart countries like Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom that fought so hard during WWII to preserve democracy for the world have also let many of their freedoms disappear.  These countries have, like America is now trying, disarmed their citizens.  Does anyone even remember that during the last century 170,000,000 citizens have been killed by their own governments after they were disarmed.  Many foreign nationals dislike the United States for whatever reason I will never comprehend, but think, where will you go to escape tyranny if America ever becomes a dictatorship.  How many millions have already fled to America.  We are not against aliens, everyone in America is either an alien or a descendant of aliens.  For most of those years when America was developing they came for freedom.  Not to inject their form of tyranny into America.  If you want the same here as in your country, why don't you just stay there?  We don't want any form of tyranny, dictatorship or control over us by our or any government entity.  I salute all, throughout the world, who are brave and fighting for freedom.

    You're visiting in Durango, Colorado and Don't Visit Ponga's Pool Hall

    If you like to shoot pool it's sometimes difficult to find a place to play when you're visiting or vacationing in another city that you may not be familiar with.  You may be concerned about the reputation of the pool hall but at Ponga's Pool Hall and Nightclub you can rest easy.  My wife and I play there almost every Friday afternoon and into the evening ever since we moved to Durango four months ago.  The clientele and the employees are very friendly and consists of a variety of people.  Young, middle age, old(er), singles and many couples play there.  Although some females may be somewhat apprehensive in going into a "pool hall" you will quickly lose any concerns and thoroughly enjoy playing there.  Of course the full service bar adds another positive feature to the place as well as a DJ and dancing on Friday and Saturday nights, and games.
    Ponga's Pool Hall and Nightclub is located in the Historic downtown district just off Main Ave. at 121 W. 8th St., Durango, CO 81301.  For more information you can call 970-382-8554 or visit their web site Ponga's Pool Hall and Nightclub. 
    (I'm writing about Ponga's without remuneration.  As my other Posts indicate, I'm solely concerned about Safety and this place is.)

    You Tailgate.

    Although I've mentioned this in several other Posts there's (almost) always someone behind me that is tailgating.  If you insist on being that close to me why don't we just car pool.  Another great idea is why don't I just tow your car.  It would save you a lot of gas.  Many times you're that close anyway.  I'm an advocate of the two-second rule even though the high school driving classes are teaching a four-second rule, which is a joke.  No one follows the four-second rule.  Most young drivers follow the one-half-second rule.  The leading cause of death of young drivers is tailgating.
    When I tap my brakes several times it's not because I don't know the difference between the gas and brake pedals.  And, when I frantically wave at you and slow way down it's not because I know you or want to pick you up.  No.  It's because you're stupid and following too close putting me in danger.  And what about you cowardly passengers; afraid to say something.  The driver is placing your life in danger also.  Statistics show that it's the passenger(s) that gets killed or crippled.  What would you think about the jerk, because of his immature driving, who crippled you for life.  It's your life - say something.  If you're a girl and you believe that the jerk will continue dating you, marry you and give you beautiful children after turning you into a quadraplegic you're more stupid than him.
    What is the four-second rule?  At night, low visibility, unfamiliar roads, etc., three-second rule.  Rain, sleet, snow, slippery streets, mountain driving with many curves, four-second rule, and slow down. 

    You Wait Longer Than You Have To

    Some things are worth waiting for, but many are not. You should arrive at your appointment on time, and you usually do, but the person who you are to see and gave you the appointment should also see you when he told you. Medical offices are notorious for making you wait, for what? Was there an emergency or merely overbooking. My limit is one hour. The few times that I went up to the desk and told the clerk/receptionist that I was leaving they were flabbergasted. Of course you shouldn't leave if blood is gushing out of your body but if it's something that can wait just make another appointment and leave. (If you gush blood all over the receptionist she'll get you in very quickly). If everyone who didn't have a true emergency would leave after an hour then the appointment makers would change their schedules/appointments so we would not have to wait - sometimes for hours.
