I guess I probably feel the way I do because I don't see certain laws as applying to me. Laws in general really, but in this case we're talking about
the 2nd amendment. Doesn't apply here because I don't own a gun. The people he was referring to also don't apply to me because I don't get easily
distracted. Ask anyone I work with. People can pass all the legislation they want. I don't really care about it because it isn't going to stop me from
doing what I do, and please don't ask me to start caring about other peoples' rights. I haven't done so yet and I don't plan on starting now. The only
thing I care about in this regard is not intentionally hurting other people. Anything else is simply a distraction from that main point.
I see law after law after law as being negative because laws are for people who NEED them. I don't need them because I know how to do the right thing.
I know how to govern myself and keep the negatives in check. I know how not to hurt people. It's pretty easy really. It involves not doing anything
negative and to be perfectly honest with you I feel sorry for the people who DO need laws.
I also feel for the people who are negatively affected by all these laws that infringe upon what THEY see a right. Namely, the right to bear arms. And
before you start talking about the constitution, spare me. It's antiquated and irrelevant. If the Government wanted to keep a heavy thumb over the
population it isn't going to be with the military or the police, so militia's as a defense are a moot point. This isn't 1776. They would do it with
more subversive tactics that come with the digital age territory.
So while you're hemming and hawing about the 2nd amendment, while you're concerned about what their right hand is doing, they're picking your pocket
with their left hand. And you're warning ME about that? Please. Bottom line.....keep it simple by not concerning yourself at all with what the
Government is doing because they're a bunch of nitwits anyway who don't have anything to do with what the common man is supposed to be
doing...........helping themselves because Washington is out of touch.
And no, I don't bury my head in the sand by telling myself that laws for the common man don't apply to me. I'm keeping my life stress free, trouble
free and crime free. I know full well what this world is about, and if I don't want to be a part of the negatives, guess what? I'm not going to be,
and if that makes me delusional and out of touch.....oh well. In the meantime I'm going to take my way of life and continue to be productive and
If you want to worry about other people who don't know how to do that, be my guest. I'm not going to waste my time on people I consider to be beneath
me. Life's too short.
