Neutered Sheepdogs

Ft Collins, CO –-( Character Flaw:

Last weekend, a patrol rifle (type/caliber unknown) was stolen from a private vehicle owned by a Calgary (Canada) municipal police officer.

Not many details are available, but Calgary’s Police Superintendent said this in his immediate response:

“There is no reason, in my mind, why an officer would take this firearm home (apparently referring to the rifle)… We do not want our officers taking their firearms home… There’s nothing good that can come of that.”

Comment: The foregoing is a typical articulation of the same malignant “reasoning” that keeps our “unarmed forces” perpetually unarmed.

Sheep don’t trust sheepdogs and more than they trust wolves!

They want us armed, but only when we’re protecting them, as, of course, they will never assume personal responsibility for protecting themselves. To liberals, personal responsibility, on the part of anyone, is unthinkable!

When not protecting them, we, and our families, are insignificant and expendable, as the Superintendent clearly indicated.

To these liberal politicians, the rest of us are little more than livestock, always distrusted and thus undeserving of personal options.

“Personal initiative” and thus “personal responsibility” are not part of their vocabulary!

It represents a pestilent, civilization-destroying character flaw!

“Strength of character does not consist solely in having powerful feelings, but in maintaining one’s balance in spite of them. Even with violence of emotion- judgment and principle must still function like a ship’s compass… however rough the sea.” ~ Carl von Clausewitz

Lost interest as soon as I saw it was yet more whining about liberals.

Man up, buttercup.


I always found it amazing how the same Gov’t that issued me an 600-Sandanista-a minute M-60 when I was 18, didn’t trust me to buy a six shooter at the same age.
