Sonja, a very good post. Many don't realize that in America in the mid-60's, our President Lyndon Johnson created an initiative termed "The Great
It was a radical turn of socialism here in the US, but oddly, it was heavily skewered toward that 6% of the population.
Suddenly, overnight, unmarried females with children could get considerable government assistance. More illegitimate children, more money. Quickly,
within this 6% of the non-European origin population, we had an entire generation that had no father figure, no moral center, no direction, and we see
the results of that today. They are killing each other off in unbelievable numbers as they were never given a remotely reasonable semblance of
They kill each other because of one simply "disrespecting" another. Drugs and drug dealing. They kill over "territories."
For those of European descent, we are compelled to reduce our own personal risk. The police always get there in time to pick up the bodies, and
can't protect us. Here in the US, self-protection is not just a right, it's an obligation. A civic duty. And guns are used every day in America
in self-defense, many without shooting. Not reported in the liberal newspapers.
One last thing. In late 1939 and 1940, the British government was taking out ads here in US newspapers urging US citizens to send weapons to Britain
- any weapons - pistols, rifles, shotguns. Because during these days after Dunkirk, the vast majority of Britain was basically unarmed from previous
reductions in personal weapons. Yet right after the war, you resorted to the same condition!
Let's hope your government keeps enough money in the shoebox to run more ads in the future if you ever need more weapons. And yes, again, Americans
will send them.
To each his own, and good luck to all.
