CounterIntuitive Man says...Of course TV is addictive!

Leave your TV off for two whole days! Can you?!

Watch... what happens without TV!

You'll feel terrible pangs of withdrawal, proving TV is addictive!

See how your mind keeps reaching for the remote!

Don't cheat and watch videos on your computer, but you'll want to!

Especially don't watch in glimpses while a family member watches!

Get them to do it too -- but boy is that ever hard -- be prepared for WWIII!

You'll hit the fridge repeatedly, like an addict going for cold turkey!

With luck, you'll clean up all the piles of things you've accumulated around your home!

You might actually go outside, and experience the world, take a walk even!

All the books and magazines you've been meaning to read, you'll read some!

Your brain will start getting exercise, and you'll remember what that's like!

You will start to actively think, instead of passively absorbing!

It will feel strange, but strangely satisfying, even as you crave some TV!

But -- you won't do any of this because the addiction is so strong!

The rationalizations you'll come up with, well, try writing them down!

They will amaze you, and it's OK to write down the same ones over and over!

Because that's how the TV addiction works, it's amazing!

When you tell yourself you're missing the news, remember you know it's not news!

You know the news is trumped up vacuous propaganda or worse, yet you miss it!

If you succeed for the full 48 hours, write me and tell me how it went!

And if you have already broken the habit, don't bother writing!

Just enjoy being free.


It's getting increasingly hard to write Page Nine in the traditional format -- because all the news stories are the same -- same topics, same errors, same slant... how many times and ways can I say that "insurgents" are really radical jihadi muslims bent on destroying western civilization? Every tax plan is reported from the side of people who get the money, not the people who have it taken from them. Science stories that don't support global whining, sustainability, destructive nature of man, evolution, the big bang, or that do support the lumber industry, industrial achievement, capitalism -- don't appear. I'll do what I can to use the familiar format, but the times they are a changin'.


Catch me on Armed American Radio -- July 3

I'll break away from the family BBQ for an appearance on Mark Walters' top rated show; nationwide, and here in my home town -- 960-AM KKNT Intelligent Conservative Talk Radio, 5 - 5:30 p.m. (2 - 2:30 East coast). Find a station near you and tune in --

Journalist David Codrea now has his own radio show -- Scottsdale-based radio station KBSZ 1260's new program, The War on Guns: Notes from the Resistance, debuted on June 13 in the 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. slot. I'll have a segment on June 29th at 7:30 a.m.

Jihad Blues

My guitar blues on YouTube has generated another response from a crazed somebody:

God is Allah. The Qoran is the Final revelation of God. And with the Qoran God created the beasts of the field and he has promised you his dreadful day. Have fun with scoffing, your lifes are like a shadow. Ask yourself a question, is God/Allah with Drunkerds, Harlots and gay people, a society who exist out of unmarried, unlawfel people, who consume alcohol, sell ther bodies, and behave as canibals. You must have made God so angry, that he allowed Jihadist to become like they are. The day of the Lord wil come like the clouds come.

Listen to the song that prompted the comments --

If you prefer spoken word, here's a speech I gave at a doctor's convention --

Walter Mitty's Second Amendment

It's been years since I've read this, but it hasn't lost any of its power. This is one dangerous piece of writing. It might change your entire perspective. Is the large-scale gun ownership we enjoy in America part of a larger grand plan to keep us asleep and enslaved?

Black Boxes

Are you worried about Big Brother tracking you? Don't worry, it's no longer a paranoid delusion -- cars are being routinely fitted with black boxes for all sorts of "good" reasons, like your safety, recovering stolen property, turning cars off while they're running to catch crooks, and perhaps less "good" reasons too, like taxing you for gas used, adjusting insurance rates and tracking your whereabouts with excruciating precision, non-stop. EDRs - electronic data recorders. Why would an honest person even care?  In a few years, a vehicle without a black box will stand out will arouse attention of the watchers...

Jihadi #2

According to  Associated Press reports, Ayman al-Zawahiri, the world's number two jihadi (after bin laden, now deceased) is believed to be operating somewhere on or near the lawless tribal rugged mountainous border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. In layman's terms, this means he is living in a large, walled, luxury condo in a big city, with a full supply of good porno, chocolate and Coca-Cola, like his former boss.

The Collapse

I have a meeting idea for you.

The private Economics Discussion Group recently met for dinner at the University Club in Phoenix to consider the effects of a calamity on our personal finances, safety and society in general. Although we decided the chances of a catastrophe are probably low, the group clearly felt that some level of forethought and preparedness would be wise (which ranged from some extra water, cash, candles and canned goods -- to a remote bunker).

I had the honor of designing and leading the discussion, which turned out to be very energetic, and I would be glad to run a similar program for your group if you think there might be interest. Since then I have delivered the program to a number of prominent groups, all with excellent results. This is the summary that went out in the monthly meeting announcement:

Pundits everywhere seem to be warning of a coming collapse in America --
financial, social, government, civil unrest, immigration, jihad --
is there any chance they're correct?

What exactly do people mean by a collapse?

We will examine and discuss the possibilities,
without going too deeply into dystopian science fiction.

Most important: What will you wish you had done before the collapse,
that you can no longer do afterwards? In other words,
are there prudent steps to take now, that could ease pain later,
and help you come out ahead, knowing that some people always benefit from strife.

This will be a moderated participatory discussion, not a lecture.

What I want to know is, if any of that's true, and we can't prevent it,
what can I do now that I'll wish I had done once it's too late.

Please get in touch if you'd like to pursue this.
It is a fascinating and engaging conversation
that holds everyone's attention and leaves people talking.

If you can't figure out how to get in touch with me and make arrangements, well, don't.

Weiner's Wife Is The Real Story

The lamestream media told you:

Anthony Weiner's weiner this, weiner that, weiner the other, nudity, salaciousness, tax-funded Blackberry, conduct unbecoming a congressman, rehab, denials, political pressure, resignation speech that sounded like acceptance of the presidency.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

While the public was distracted with smoke and mirrors and bread and circuses, the real story concerns this man's wife. Dr. Carl Goldberg, a prominent muslim/jihad watcher reported:

"All of the news media is devoting a huge amount of time and space to Congressman Weiner's adolescent sexual Internet behavior, but there is another element to this story that everyone who is concerned about the problem of Islam should be aware of.
"Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin is described as a practicing Moslem. While it is true that she is in violation of Sharia law for marrying a Jew, her biography raises serious concerns. Her father, a Muslim from India, was a scholar of Islam. Her mother, a Muslim from Pakistan, is professor of sociology in Saudi Arabia. Abedin was born in America, but she lived in Saudi Arabia from the age of 2 until she went to college at Georgetown. Her entire upbringing was in Saudi Arabia. Her parents clearly had to conform to the extreme Saudi teachings of Islam while teaching there. Has Abedin renounced any of the violent religious bigotry inherent in the doctrines of Islam which she was taught by her parents and her life in Saudi Arabia?
"Abedin is the closest confidant and assistant to our American Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. What advice do you supposed Abedin is giving our Secretary of State about Islam, the Islamic world and Israel? There is no way that Abedin can be loyal to her parents and her Islamic upbringing, and also be loyal to America. The two are mutually exclusive. It is either the Koran or the American Constitution, but not both.
"I urge you to visit the online discussions about Congressman Weiner raise these questions about Abedin's influence on our Secretary of State. Please go the Washington Post, CNN and the Wall Street Journal and leave your comments. Many people will read them. This is an excellent opportunity for us to raise the issue of Islamic doctrines. Feel free to cite a passage or two from the Koran. People need to read them!"

Armed Jews Have A New Leader

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership -- which bills itself as the most aggressive gun-rights organization in America -- has a new Executive Director, Mr. Charles Heller of Tucson. Charles is a firearms instructor, radio talk-show host, and a founder and board member of the Arizona Citizens Defense League, one of the nation's leading gun-rights groups.

Aaron Zelman (1946 - 2010), a dedicated and tireless civil-rights advocate, founded Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership in 1986. For 24 years, Aaron guided the organization to a position of prominence and respect within the firearms and larger human-rights communities. He also earned the enmity of groups pressing for civilian disarmament, such as the Brady Campaign to Promote Gun Violence, the Violence Policy Center, the Anti-Defamation League, the Southern Poverty Law Center, the federal Centers for Disease Control, the United Nations, the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and groups less demanding than JPFO in the defense of gun rights. JPFO's three main goals are:

--Destroy so-called “gun control” (code words for disarming innocent people).

--Expose the misguided notions that lead people to seek out so-called “gun control.”

--Encourage Americans to understand and defend all of the Bill of Rights for all citizens. The Second Amendment is the “Guardian” of the Bill of Rights.

The group has produced nationally acclaimed and award-winning books, videos and documentaries, including the highly controversial No Guns For Negroes, No Guns For Jews, Dial 911 and Die,  Innocents Betrayed (concerning genocide of disarmed populations) and more. With Aaron's passing on Dec. 21, 2010, JPFO's board of directors, along with an inner circle of close colleagues, proceeded to ensure JPFO's continuing struggle to protect freedom, and the right of all people to keep and bear arms. The search for a new director was completed and officially announced last week.

JPFO's new Executive Director
Meet Charles Heller:

I grew up in Chicago, the son of a law-enforcement officer and grandson of a judge. I knew what certiorari was before I knew of the infield-fly rule. I had a BB-gun rifle range in the basement of my grandfather's house, and fired thousands of shots before my teen years. Our scout troop met at Kesser Mariv Synagogue, and I was Bar Mitzvah at B'nai Jacob.

In 1978 I moved to Arizona, specifically for the right to keep and bear arms, when Chicago would no longer accept a gun registration. I am literally a political refugee.

I am one of four co-founders of the Arizona Citizens Defense League, the primary self-defense civil-rights lobby in Arizona. We are responsible for the passage of Constitutional Carry here, the right to carry openly or concealed without a permission slip from government, and numerous other cutting-edge gun laws that protect and expand the G-d given right to keep and bear arms.

I am the host of Swap Shop, Liberty Watch, and America Armed & Free radio programs on KVOI in Tucson, and have been on the air for 13 years.

13 years is a good omen -- 13 original American colonies, 13 stars in our original flag, a Jew becomes a man in the faith, "Bar Mitzvah," at 13 years of age. Go get 'em Charles!

Visit JPFO and show them your support, get on their free alerts list (nothing else like it!), buy a video and see something you will NOT see on broadcast TV. Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership in definitely one-of-a-kind -- Good luck Charles (a close personal friend I can recommend wholeheartedly) in steering this amazing group thorugh its next phase!

National Training Week July 4 to 11

Three Congressmen have now endorsed National Training Week -- when everyone is encouraged to go to the range and practice -- Read all about it. Ask ranges in your state to support the plan, it's simple -- they  offer free one-hour handgun rentals to newcomers or anyone during 4th of July Week, July 4 to 11.

Free publicity, full-color artwork you can download and use, great opportunity to expand business and attract new customers, spread the fun of the shooting sports. YOU should decide to be an ambassador for the project, go to your favorite range, show them the webpage, and convince them to participate. You want to DO something to save our rights? This is it.

National Training Week is also the perfect time to take non-shooting friends to the range and introduce them to this wonderful sport -- they'll never be the same, and will always remember you -- just like you remember the first time you went shooting!
