Animal Farm
 
Remember Animal Farm?  It caused quite the stir so many years ago when it was published.  By definition, it was a satirical Novella. Let’s look:
 
(1945) is a satirical novella (which can also be understood as a modern fable or allegory) by George Orwell, ostensibly about a group of animals who oust the humans from the farm on which they live. They run the farm themselves, only to have it degenerate into a brutal tyranny of its own.

Why The Sudden Interest?

I’m going to take a different turn here today from my usual ranting about the bankers, the overblown market’s and the Washington criminals. And here’s why….

6.16.2016 - I was told gun control works Bookmark

The loony left says they want more and more gun control. They say it solves everything. Well today in the UK, Labour party 'member of Parliament"  (MP) Jo Cox, was shot dead with a pistol. Are pistols legal in the UK? Let's look... 

According to an English rifle and gun club legal center, any person possessing a firearm in the U.K. must posses a Shotgun Certificate or a Firearm Certificate. Machine guns, pepper spray, semi-automatic, and pump-action rifles, and any firearm that has a barrel less than 30 centimeters in length are prohibited. . All handguns, semi-automatic and pump-action non-rim-fire rifles are prohibited 

OOPS. It seems pistols are illegal. Yet somehow this lunatic, got one, made one, found one, etc.  That's the point folks, Bad people, evil people will find a way to do evil. Remember Boston? They used pressure cookers. Banning guns just turns America into a hunting preserve for the Mentally unstable.

Is Paris Burning?

I like to study history, because quite often what we are told happened, is quite different from what really did happen.  While it is attributed to just about every world leader of recent times, the adage “history is written by the winners” goes back millennium, in various twists.  I’ve seen it as “History is written by those who have hanged hero’s”  and I’ve seen other variants such as  "History is the version of past events that people have decided to agree upon."

While researching various incidents that occurred during WWII I was given a book called “Is Paris Burning?”  The thrust of the book was that when Hitler realized that France was going to be liberated, he instructed the Generals in charge of the French occupation to burn Paris to the ground as his troops evacuated the area. But the main man in charge of that operation had reservations about doing it. It didn’t seem like a humane thing to do, and he continued to put it off. Ultimately he refused to give the order, despite an almost hysterical Hitler demanding it.
