Gun Control | Freedom Force International

Something about gun control that makes sense.

What do you think?


© 2007 January 07 by G. Edward Griffin

Gun-control laws do not control crime because crimes are not committed by guns; they are committed by criminals. Criminals will always have guns because they do not obey laws, including anti-gun laws. Those without guns are easy prey for criminals with guns. Gun control encourages crime.

The right to bear arms was included in the Bill of Rights, not to deter crime, but to deter oppressive government. Just governments honor and protect the right to bear arms. Oppressive governments fear and prohibit the right to bear arms.

Guns are dangerous. The only thing more dangerous is not having them.

Visualizing the BP Oil Spill Disaster | If it was Your Home | BP Deepwater Horizon

This website I found lets you visualize the spill if it was in your area, and keeps you informed of what is going on and what can you do to help.

About The Spill

“An explosion on the BP operated Deepwater Horizon oil rig killed eleven crew members on April 20, 2010, sparking the greatest environmental disaster in United States history. In combination with the Texas City Refinery Explosion and the Prudohoe Bay Oil Spill, this marks the third serious incident involving BP in the United States in the last five years. Current estimates put the amount of oil being discharged from the broken well at above 1,470,000 US gallons per day! There are over 400 different species of animals living in the area affected by the spill. 450 sea turtles and 57 dolphins have been found dead within the spill area (NOAA). BP is operating oil skimmers and other cleanup tools to try to remove oil from the water and Louisiana is building oil containment berms to halt the spread of oil. Experts are uncertain what effect, if any, these efforts will have.”

How not to Spam your Friends | Useful Tips

I just received a spam email from someone I know. She doesn’t communicate at all (although she should); she just sends unwanted, advertising email, which are even lacking in taste at times.  Since this is a good way to lose friends fast, I am posting these two simple rules to help you keep them.

1) Do you regularly communicate with the person? If not, your offer is spam, don’t send it.

2) Make sure that your friend (or acquaintance) will accept or is expecting the email.

And remember that spamming doesn’t say much for you.

The Creature from Jekyll Island | What Federal Reserve? | G. Edward Griffin

The Creature from Jekyll Island

I was aware of this, in a way. I had read about it. But politicians are so good at deceiving us, aren’t they? I heard President Obama talked about bailouts, and the federal reserve system, and how they would solve the recession problem, and I believed him. It made me feel that the federal reserve system was real. But I guess we have to face it; we are being conned.

I just came across the book by G. Edward Griffin, The Creature from Jekyll Island, A Second Look at the Federal Reserve. And although I haven’t finished the book yet it seems to be very well documented, a must read for all Americans. It seems that our own government in association with a banking cartel (it is not federal and there is no reserve) is financially  murdering the middle class and leading the world into chaos. It may be time to change our course. A country that leaves the control of its money supply in the hands of a few bankers is not a free country.

Creature from Jekyll Island, a must read

It is interesting to note, however, that the con-men are also being conned. The ego makes us believe that we can profit by deceiving others, but everything is interconnected. At the end they will also be swallowed by the maelstrom they are creating. It is unavoidable.

If you follow this link,, and scroll down, you will find an excellent excerpt from the book. Be aware and awake.
