The Gun-Happy Swiss

You can see immediately where this is going.  An NPR "special series" on guns in America.  Did I say NPR?  The thing is,  I've been holding this for a week; it was originally published last March, pre-dating the "Navy-Yard" shootings, so that's not what compels me.  What does is having another exemplar of Liberal writing about guns.

Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson here looks at Switzerland- whoops
"Gun Loving" Switzerland," an immediate tip-off to mindset.   She is not a fan. So, what's good and bad about gun loving Switzerland?.  Read it.  See if you can find the "hasn't worked."  I found these.
  • Swiss — like Americans — are grappling (oft used Liberal fun word for unsubstantiated predicates with the question of gun control these days after shooting attacks like one on Feb. 27 that killed four people in a factory outside Lucerne.
  • Firearm deaths in Switzerland take place at just one-seventh the rate that they occur in the United States. But researchers say guns are often used in suicides and crimes of passion in Switzerland. (OMFG! Is she saying that with no access to guns there would be no suicides?)
  • Gun control advocates argue Swiss authorities have lost track of too many of these military-issued guns, which account for most of the 2.5 million-plus guns in Switzerland. (That's what "gun control advocates do you twit.  Else they would not be  gun control advocates. )
Here are a few of the good.
  • "Gun politics in Switzerland are unique in Europe. Switzerland does not have a standing army, instead opting for a people's militia for its national defense." (Wiki)
  • "It's a tradition that some historians say kept the Nazis from trying to overrun Switzerland during World War II."(Article)
What an awkward sentence.  "It's a tradition that some historians say ..." What does  that mean"Tradition;" "Some historians?"  If you're going to throw in that qualifier, then I  expect a citation for historians who omit that tradition.  And does not mentioning something automatically mean dissent?  Of course not. 

I think the reader will find that the "what's worked" column dominates this article.  Even if the reader is not aware that tax payer subsidized NPR is a nest of cloistered Liberals, with little knowledge of the other side of any issue they advocate; and that they make shit up, a lot;  the reader will like and admire the gun happy Swiss.  Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson was not able to make a sow's ear from a silk purse. 

Roy Benavidez

Roy Benavidez was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions West of Loc Ninh, South Vietnam in May of 1968. When word that a squad was pinned down by enemy fire Roy Benavidez immediately volunteered to exact their rescue. During the course of the effort he subjected himself to constant enemy fire and suffered numerous injuries, but still led the remaining soldiers to protect and defend their position even after their first rescue helicopter was shot down.

I truly do not remember the last time I experienced full body chill like I did watching this. Reached its apex the moment Ronald Reagan began speaking.  Like Ron "I Metzer in St Louis" impertinently instructed me, "Watch it!  That's an Order."

There was also a growing sense of entitlement and disrespect, she said. "He did have the tendency to feel like people owed him something all the time."

He got annoyed when she couldn't give him rides, and he started eating the couple's food without permission, and ignoring her when she complained, she said.

“I knew he was not happy with America and he felt slighted as a veteran and he was ready to move out of the country," she said.

"It was a particular brand of arrogance, an obtuseness in otherwise sane people that brought forth our bitter laughter. It was as if whites didn't know they were being cruel in the first place. Or at least thought you deserved of their scorn.”

Lip, Expecting

A man asked to speak with the person in charge.

Me: “How can I help you, sir?”

Man: “I’m a taxpayer and your door is broken and all of my money is going right out the door with the air conditioning!”

Me [pleasantly]: “Oh my! Let’s go take a look.” [walks to vestibule, adjusts button on automatic door]. “There we go. All better. It looks like someone bumped into it maybe.”

Man: “Ah, you fixed it?”

Me: “Yep.”

Man: “Well, I’m glad I said something. Most people wouldn’t say anything, you know. I was going to write to my congressman if you gave me any lip, but you are very nice.”

Me: “Yes! Thanks. Bye!”  [I Work At a Public Library]

FBI files, newspaper ad and curious photos raise questions

FBI Special Agent Graham Kitchel wrote the memo to the FBI’s Houston bureau, dated Nov. 22, 1963, the day of the assassination.
But in the last paragraph, Graham confirmed that Bush was going to be at the Sheraton-Dallas Hotel in Dallas on the day of the assassination, returning to his residence in Houston the next day.

Some researchers – noting the discrepancy that the Dallas Morning News claimed Bush would be at the Sheraton-Dallas on Thursday night, Nov. 21, 1963, while the Kitchel memo suggests Bush would be at the hotel on the night of the assassination – have speculated that Bush made the call to establish an alibi.

Russ Baker, author of the 2009 book “Family of Secrets,” observed: “In summary, then, Bush called in a pointless tip about an innocent fellow to an FBI agent whom he knew, and whom he knew could be counted on to file a report on this trip – out of what may have been hundreds of calls, some of them not even worthy of documenting, and, after a cursory investigation, the tip was confirmed as useless.”

It's my belief that JFK was killed by an amalgam of Mafia-CIA operatives for reasons ranging from the Bay of Pigs betrayal, Bobby Kennedy's war on the Mafia, especially Carlos Marcellus and Jimmy Hoffa, and fear about what JFK was doing in Vietnam, especially the Diem assassinations and talk of folding our hand.  And remember, it is a certainty that JFK stole the 1960 election from Nixon with help from the Chicago mafia, and LBJ's South Texas machine.  That said, I would not be at all surprised if there was substance here.  For instance, I have always found it interesting that when Richard Nixon was asked where he was that day, he responded "I don't recall,"  which would make him the only person in the nation who did not.   Some reports placed him in the office building across from the Book Depository.  But that's not what this is about.*

Res Ipsa LoquitorI'm interested in what the lame-streamers do with this info from Jerome Corsi.  If you'll remember, Corsi was dogged in tracking down the truth about Obama's birth certificate.  On the eve of his book's publication,  the Obamas released the so called "full birth certificate."  It was immediately seen to be a forgery, but no matter. Corsi's book sales suffered,  and the Obamas announced they would no longer answer any more questions about birth certificates, or school transcripts.  The media of course then put a lid on all subsequent attempts to arrive at the truth (not that they had done much in the first place) .

Associating an ex-Republican president to the assassinated and sainted JFK will, I'm certain, elicit a good deal of positive interest from Liberals than did "birther" Corsi.  I would not be surprised if Sixty-Minutes, which only investigates Republican administrations, suddenly comes alive on this issue.

*Aside- I once shared my JFK  theories with someone I suspected of having CIA connections, and he responded "What if the Good Guys killed JFK?"
