You Walk On The Wrong Side Of The Road

Persons walking on the travel portion of a roadway, must walk towards/facing oncoming traffic.  This, of course, is so you can see the oncoming cars and take proper steps to avoid being hit.  Whether the oncoming car should slow down or move into the other lane is a matter of supposition, and sometimes law.

But, if a pedestrian encounters, is struck by, a car, the pedestrian, which is you, will always lose;  therefore, it is incumbent upon youself to also look out for your well being.  As I've stated in another Post, there are 70,000 pedestrians hit by cars in the United States and 4,000 of them are killed every year.

When crossing a street, most pedestrians walk across diagonally instead of in a perpendicular route of travel.  Perpendicular travel is the shortest distance from one side to the other: straight across.  Diagonally is a straight line that's set at an angle from one side to the other.  By walking at an angle you remain on the roadway up to 35% longer, giving yourself a greater time to be hit by a car.

Whenever you're on foot, walking, you're a pedestrian.  People don't appreciate this and think that it only pertains to roadwaays.  You're also a pedestrian when walking in a parking lot and coming out of a store travesing a white-lined pedestrian zone.  Just because the crosswalk at an intersection or just outside the store is marked doesn't mean that a car can't hit you.  

Didn't your mother tell you to look both ways before crossing the street?  Well, you should also look both ways before stepping into a crosswalk, or stepping out into a parking lot when exiting a store.  While we're trying not to get hit by a car in a parking lot, one should observe the back lights on the cars, whether they're off, red, or white.  White means that the car is in reverse and ready to back up into you.

Another dangerous practice often engaged in by pedestrians is when they have earphones on and listening to music.  This prevents them from hearing the oncoming cars.  This practice is especially dangerous when walking on the wrong side of the road.

You Don't Take Care Of Yourself

I told my son-in-law many years ago that I thought that he was doing a very good job of taking care of my daughter and my two grandchildren. I then told him that he must also take good care of himself and why. 

It's not being selfish to take care of one's self.  If we're not in good shape, then we cannot take care of our loved ones. So, taking care of one's self is really an unselfish act.

You're A Pedestrian And Don't Consider The Sun

The Sun:

The sun was shining bright late this afternoon when I was walking my dog. Walking back towards my house I noticed how bright the road ahead looked. The trees seemed to be lit up and I could see several deer crossing the street far ahead. 

What a wonderful bright picture the sun made as it was shining from the back of me and slowly lowering in the sky. During the early, to mid-morning hours the sun is also low but rising. What wonderful times of the day to be out walking, BUT,

While the sun is at your back it's also shining in the windshield of the approaching cars, blinding or, at least, severely reducing the driver's vision; therefore, he may not see you . . . WHACK, YOU'RE DEAD.

 Tip: If the approaching car is not moving away from you, you move away from it by stepping off of the travel portion of the road.

United States Statistics:  Seventy thousand are hit by cars every year with 4,000 of them being killed.

You Think That You're Still A Police Officer in California

There are no longer any Law Enforcement Officers in the state of California. Since California has become a Sanctuary State, the police officers no longer enforce Federal Statutes. Therefore, based on the cite below, they no longer are acting under color of law, but as civilians . . . at their own peril.

Retired LEO, Criminal and Procedural Law Instructor -- 24 years.

The Bill of Rights, the 2nd Amendment is part of the Constitution.
The U.S. Supreme Court, in Scheuer v. Rhodes, 416 U.S. 232, 94 S.Ct. 1683, 1687 (1974) stated that "when a state officer acts under a state law in a manner violative of the Federal Constitution, he "comes into conflict with the superior authority of that Constitution, and he is in that case stripped of his official or representative character and is subjected in his person to the consequences of his individual conduct. The State has no power to impart to him any immunity from responsibility to the supreme authority of the United States."

Author's Note:  This does not pertain to or impact retired California officers.

Why Carry a Gun?

My old Grandpa said to me, 'Son, there comes a time in every man's life when he stops bustin' knuckles and starts bustin' caps and usually it's when he becomes too old to take a whoopin'.' I don't carry a gun to kill people; I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don't carry a gun because I'm evil; I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the World.

I don't carry a gun because I hate the government; I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.

I don't carry a gun because I'm angry; I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don't carry a gun because I want to shoot someone; I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I don't carry a gun to make me feel like a man; I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate; I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don't carry a gun because I love it; I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me. Police protection is an oxymoron: Free citizens must protect themselves because police do not protect you from crime; they just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

I carry a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take a whoopin'!



In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control: From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control: From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Germany established gun control in 1938:From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

China established gun control in 1935: From 1948 to· 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Guatemala established gun control in 1964:· From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Uganda established gun control in 1970:From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Cambodia established gun control in 1956: From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

56 million defenseless people were rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control.

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens. With guns, we are 'citizens'; without them, we are 'subjects'.

During WW II, the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

Gun owners in the USA are the largest armed forces in the World! If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message to all of your friends. ·
The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either.



Site Owner's Notes:

1.  America has the Second Amendment codified in the Bill of Rights which is a part of our Constitution.  Why doesn't your country have such a right?

2.  The most murders in America are in states and cities with the most draconian anti-gun laws.  This is also true for many countries.  Switzerland, the safest country in the world, is where every man is give a gun by the government. 

3.  Many who live in countries run by dictators say that it's against the law and that guns cost too much.  Guns are free as I've stated many times.  Just kill a dictator's goon and take his gun.  The Poles in the Warsaw ghetto got their guns by killing German soldiers, (dictator's goons).  This allowed them to hold off the German army for a month.  (During WWII).

4.  Liberals in America and Liberal governments in other countries say that, "Merely pass more gun laws and we'll be safer."  Let's examine the staatistics.

  Murder by firearms per 100,00 population:

  Honduras -  66.64  (Civilians can't have guns.)
  Venezuela - 39.00   (Civilians can't have guns.)
  Guatemala - 29.62  (Civilians can't have guns.)
  United States - 3.60  (Civilians CAN have guns.)  (If we took away the three cities, such as Chicago, with    the strictest gun laws we'd probably be less than 1.00 per 100,000.
  Switzerland - Every adult HAS a gun.  Lowest gun related deaths in the world.

5.  All of this Post pertains to every person who loves freedom throughout the world . . . not only the United States.

You Rest Your Foot on the Brake Pedal.

"Just resting your foot on the brake pedal will cause very light pressure on the brake pads thereby causing premature pad and rotor failure and having a negative effect on gas mileage. I have replaced rotors and pads with less than 5,000 miles on them when they should have lasted for 80,000 miles or more."  (Thanks to Frederick Ciampi for the tip, a FB friend.)

If I see your brake lights, then I know that you're going to do something. If you slow down and start turning onto a side street, then I know that you're going to turn on a side street.
Now let's say that you're going to slow down to turn but before you turn on your brake lights, you turn on your signal light giving me more warning so I'll have less of a chance to run into you and maybe kill you.
Did you know that just resting your foot on the brake pedal and long before the brakes are engaged, your brake lights go on?  (Site owner.)

You’re a Progressive/Liberal Voter in Germany

Last Sunday, Sept. 24, 2017, the German voters voted Merkel in again for her 4th Term. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, and the Nationalist Party gained 94 seats, ha, ha, ha,ha, they haven’t won even one seat since WWII. No need to wonder why based on what’s been happening in Germany since Merkel became Chancellor.

And you voted her in again! ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, Most people with a brain, know that history repeats itself . . . but not the German voters. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. It’s 1933 all over again.

On December 26, 1776, Gen. Washington kicked your Hessian behinds. Not to belabor the point of the many defeats since, I’ll just skip to WWI, got it kicked again. WWII, got it kicked again. Historians would ask,”What the heck are you doing.” As brilliant as the German people are, Sociology and History is not their strong suit.

Like most Progressive/Liberals, they think that when overrun by a culture of hate, violence, rape, and murder that it won’t affect them . . . think again!

I’m rolling on the floor laughing. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. My side is splitting and I can’t stop. Ten years, the Americans will be kicked out of Germany. Twenty years – hello Russia.

You Don't Know What A Lie Is.

An untruth is not a lie.

Lie = to make an untrue statement with intent to deceive. -- Merriam Webster dictionary. Even the dictionaries have the definition wrong.

If I intend to deceive an evil person by telling him an untruth; it is not a lie. Even my statement, below*, which sounds correct on its face, does not totally state what a lie is.

To tell a just person an untruth with the intent to harm an innocent person is a lie.  To tell an untruth to enhance your position or to gain an advantage over another unfairly are lies.

"The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth."

"The truth," = Facts that are personally known by you based on your experiences, your personal observation of the situation, your background and education on the subject.
"The whole truth," = Not leaving out any facts, known to you, that is pertinent to the situation.
"And nothing but the truth," = By not adding information to enhance your position or to cause harm to another person in an attempt to deceive.
If you do not have all three criterias . . . you've just lied.

Then, what is a lie? It's intentionally telling an untruh to do harm.

*My original statement:  September 21, 2015 ·(On my Facebook page).

If you have to change a fact, however slight, to make it sound better; you've just lied.

You Go Along With Insane Directives

Let Me Try To Explain This

Czechs take legal action over EU rules on gun control external site
The Czech Republic filed a lawsuit on Friday against a new European Union directive tightening gun ownership, aimed at limiting access to semi-automatic and other weapons after deadly Islamist attacks in western Europe."

Because the Islamist invaders are killing you with guns the EU leaders want to take away the guns from those who aren't killing anyone, the citizens, so they won't be able to even defend themselves.

My feeling is that the ones in charge of the EU are insane. 

Personal message to the citizens of Europe:  Get a gun or keep the one you have.  If anyone says that they must confiscate it . . . kill him.
