Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

I Demand Justice - My Rights Have Been Denied

I didn't know how truly oppressed I was until I came across this wonderful American Thinker post about us 55% percent of Americans who sadly are not willing to own a gun, or in my case, cannot afford to do so. Mr. Fritsch has it all figured out. Following the wisdom of our Deemocratic overlords, he models his new entitlement after our brilliant health care reform legislation, which has been carefully crafted by the best legal minds.

From the gun-ownership enfranchisement proposal:
For those that can't afford it, a grant or subsidy to purchase a weapon (union members can get two weapons subsidized before 2018)
Question: How much are we talking about? Can I get a big, honking machine gun because I'm not really a good shot. If not, I would prefer a small, lady-like weapon that would fit it my purse. Thank you federal government!

(I know I should be in the 45%, but as of right now, I haven't been able to secure the knives around here. *looks behind back warily* The second amendment will still be there when they get a little older and I incorporate marksmanship into our homeschool program. Some of you say it won't given the recent events, but there are a lot more of us in the 55% than there are of them in the 45% IYKWIMAITYD.

"The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that... it is their right and duty to be at all times armed."
--Thomas Jefferson to John Cartwright, 1824. 


  1. Good point. I wish I had this at my fingertips this past weekend, when I really needed it in a conversation.

    I have read, but I don't know for certain that it is true, that Thomas Jefferson never went walking without his rifle, as a matter of principle. I believe it, but I also understand that it might be one of those historical tidbits that gets left out of the history books.

    Welcome to the blogosphere. And thanks for the 10 most wanted list. Very useful

  2. My first comment! I'm so excited! The quote you seek is:

    "A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the Body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind . . . Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks."
    --Thomas Jefferson, Letter to his nephew Peter Carr, August 19, 1785.
