After seeing videos on YouTube and having my own experience with dying military surplus thought I’d make a video about it. Hope this helps others. -13
Finally found a good link to this! If you haven’t seen this interview from a concert attendee wait until you do. When I saw this interview my head was spinning. What a story huh? I want to know who the couple was and exactly what they have to say about the Las Vegas mass shooting. Make you curious? Of all the witness I’ve seen on video the couple she refers to are the only ones I care to hear from. What the hell did they know to make a commotion like that and make such a bold statement? I want to know! -13
How do you stop a mass shooting or robbery in 20 seconds? Create your own safe-space by taking full responsibility and control of your liberty. Be prepared and never leave home without your personal protective equipment. This version of this incident demonstrates it well. This is about facts and rubbing it in the nose of those anti civil rights gun control fanatics who seek to disarm us. Talk about un-American. I would be a complete idiot to be placed in danger because of irrational fears, projections or any other ego trip they might be on. Observing the bullshit put out by news business that clearly have an agenda made me want to respond with a visual aid for the most stupid ass among us to comprehend. 21:52:24 Entry, 21:52:44 All clear! 20 seconds. Grandpa covered all their asses. Case closed! -13
Irma passed. The electricity and internet stayed on the entire time. Then as the storm passed, internet gone! For more than a week, I’ll write more on that in another post. Couldn’t work on my other projects so thought I’d clear up some of my video projects and catch up.
Here it is weeks later and just today have I been able to accomplish what I set out to do. What I thought would take a week has turned into three weeks. I discovered I had four months of dash cam videos piled up on my computer. When I checked, the memory on the computer was in the red zone. Whatever that meant.
Parked at the computer desk I began the sorting process. I discovered some things I hadn’t noticed before when I didn’t have so many to sort at the same time. Our dK2 camera usually records 100, three minute videos per day, often more. There are so many drivers not using their turn signal to indicate a lane change I had to eliminate all but the most offensive in my eye. I used close calls, speed, proximity to others, distance etc as a guide. The progression of this can be seen in the videos as I learned more.
It takes me about 30 seconds to scan each 3 minute section. More if I find something. Every 5 hours or so of video seems to produce 1-2 minutes of useable footage. The project getting behind like that was to much. I have to stay on top of it or it will become overwhelming and I’ll run out of storage space.
I finally figured a way to cut a still image from the actual footage to use as a custom thumbnail. That discovery made me want to go back an change all the covers to the begining. I didn’t like the blue screen background much it reminded me of computer blue screen hell. So, now it’s changed.
I also have a lot of after hurricane Irma footage to work on. Hoping I can find some before footage to work in for contrast. That will take a couple weeks again of trying to find, then match footage or stills. I’ve deleted many things that are gone forever so it might be hard to find. Lesson learned with imovie, save a copy away from your project, if you cut something from another project then delete it, it will be gone from your other project.
Glad I’m somewhat caught up. The Irma after footage will be time consuming but worth it because there is serious destruction recorded on them. They look like they will be much longer than most videos. More in the 10 minute ranges or so. I like making these kind of videos for fun hope people enjoy them. -13
I grew up in the south and have had several opportunity to witness a klan rally. The first two times was when I was a kid. Sometime back in the mid, maybe later 70’s, I think? Me and my friend had seen the posters, knew where the place was so we snuck into the woods earlier in the day with all our vintage military gear, then watched the whole thing from beginning to cross burning end posted up in an old civil war earthwork on the hillside. Couldn’t believe they didn’t have someone up there for security. That might seem weird thinking for a kid, remember I grew up outside a military base, my mentors were combat veterans and police officers, medics who also had combat experience. Nearly all my dads friends were active duty or retired. My family had military contracts. Get it?
It was crazy and totally terrifying to be there hidden in the woods. We were very concerned for our safety if we were caught. As the people arrived it was clear they were heavily armed. I had thought about bringing my rifle but didn’t because we had to cross a couple busy city streets and neighborhoods to get there, the only way in was by foot for us. A pistol was out because I was a kid and didn’t own one, they belonged to my dad and would need his permission. Not an option if I was going stealth into the woods to spectate on a klan rally. So there we were unarmed.
No matter what I would have brought with me I would have been out gunned by any one or two of the guys who had shown up. We were able to see into a few of their trunks and they were full of guns, it was cool and insane all at once. Thank goodness for binoculars. My friend was a wise choice. He knew how to keep his mouth shut and creep quiet through the woods full of dry leaves and twigs. Try it sometime you’ll see just how hard it can be.
The next time I witnessed part of a rally was several years later when I was on a 10-27 (structure fire) call with the rescue squad. On our way to the fire at first we thought the glow from a rally burning three crosses was the fire but we soon found out it was the wrong place when the armed guards informed us everything there was under control, wrong address. They were right the burning house was a couple of miles away down the same road.
Similar circumstances several years later when I was responding to a call for cardiac arrest in the deep boonies we rolled by a large gathering with a huge burning cross. It was just off the side of the road in a big cornfield. At first in the distance it looked like someone burning a brush pile until we rolled right up on top of the whole thing.
Within a year or two of that we’d dropped off a patient at a hospital and were returning to station when we spotted a red glow in the hills that looked for sure like a house fire. We went to investigate expecting the place to be fully involved by the time we got there. Nope not a house fire just a klan rally. Nuts! I left the area a year or two after that and never saw any klan thing since.
I have seen some blatant racism over the years. Amazing to watch. I’m not just talking about white on black either but that isn’t the topic and most of this is a sidetracked tangent recollection of the past. It was totally inspired by a video clip I’d seen in the last few minutes at the end of a video I’d been watching on YouTube. Featuring a real interview with Johnny Lee Clary on Enough Rope with Andrew Denton. The way it is shown in the video makes it impossible to distinguish that it is a real interview. When I saw it I thought it was a comedy piece put together to make fun of racist. I really thought that.
I thought it was so funny that I wanted to share it. The laugh was on me when I found out the guy was for real and there was much more to the story than just the 4:00 minutes shown. If things could work out for real like that all racist encounters would be so funny and provide what can only be called instant karma. This made me laugh, still does. I love stories like this. What a long lead into this video but it inspired those memories so thought I’d put this on my blog since that’s why I started it. -13
Here is the cut without having to look for it at the end of the other video below.
Johnny Lee Clary on Enough Rope with Andrew Denton
The video I had been watching.
Arm the citizens! Hell yes for the second amendment! Lets restore law and order, rule of law and return to the U.S. Constitution! Kick out these corrupt banker-politicians elected by willful ignorance and corporate propaganda. Oh wait, the story is about socialist-communist infested Venezuela?
Got it! Easy as pie low-budget manipulation?
Maduro said he would arm the citizens. Great plan when they’re fighting in the streets already. Only arm party members? Ok, remember they’ll only play along so long as the freebies and food keep coming, but when it stops or the boogie man never shows. Trained, armed individuals with abilities that weren’t before. Perfect CIA ploy and it didn’t cost much at all.
Arm and train the citizenry already on the verge of insurrection. Starving, armed people, hum, wonder where this will lead? All Trump had to do was threaten action and look what it got them. One step closer to total anarchy in Venezuela and a possible U.S. puppet for a replacement. Socialism-communism always ends up the same way. Let this be a lesson for the socialist-communist wannabes. Think you’re all emotional now wait until you are hungry. Boy scout motto if you were lucky enough, “Be prepared”. -13
The American people will fuck you up when they come together. All one has to do is study history. Cannot wait to see where this will lead.
Is the fall underway as it appears? How will the people respond? Didn’t do shit when they passed the Patriot Act. Now though, they invade your homes and property without warrant, let the banks take money from your savings and checking accounts without recourse.
The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution provides that “[t]he right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
Those closest to me have known this since the 80’s and will not find the news above a surprise. Ready to fight for your freedom? In what capacity? Probably not. Doesn’t matter anyway. They created the mob and are walking directly into the path of a destruction of their own design. The sooner the better. Let the suffering begin.
Unfortunately we learned as a people, all of human beings of sound mind that during World War 1 and WW2, fascist-communist can only be stopped at gunpoint.
In my part of the universe humans are liberated in many ways, kindness, cruelty, self inflicted suffering are just a few that motivate one to make better choices. Don’t be outraged, be prepared and stay out of your emotions. It’s selfish really. The more you’re prepared the fewer mindless-hungry-ghost-zombies roaming the countryside the better. It will conserve ammunition and reduce the chances of a crossfire, FF incident. See what I mean about my motivations. Getting prepared for the future? Can’t wait to see what happens next. -13
