One of Two Ways to lose a right.

I posted this comment in here:

@ bs Foot print
You ownly have the rights you are will to defend. Technically you are right as you can only lose a right one of two ways: voluntarily relinquished or at death; as murder is the ultimate violation of your right to life.

He did have two choises: he could move or file a laws suite stating that his 2nd Amendment right had been violated.


On a Whim and a Prayer.

When you allow the government to give you your rights on a whim don't act surprised when they take them away on a whim.

There's a Guy named Travis Corcoran (Blogs under the name TJIC), he has a comic book website Heavy Ink Comics, a blog Dispatches from TJICistan, and another website SmartFlix.com where he rents instructional videos.
The only reason I know about this guy is that some of the blogs I follow have taken up for him and provided links to his story. They have asked anyone and everyone to put up picture with statement "I am TJIC".
"I am not TJIC" as I would not ask anyone to just make a silly statement if support, but I would put out a call to action in helping me defend my rights all the way to the Supreme Court if needed. Another reason I will not be using the "I am TJIC" picture is because you do realize the "I am Sparticus" line was a last bit of defiance after they had already fought the good fight and where about to get crucified?  If you are going to have a rallying cry or call to battle it needs to be a call to action, but as I can't think of anything better I might break down and put it up.
TJIC mad some controversial statements and got his guns taken from him. He did this in Massachusetts where you need a permit to own a gun and his permit was revoked. This is an infringement on his 1st & 2nd Amendment rights. I've said this elsewhere; Everyone seems to me to be under the impression that his Second Amendment was violated when they took his guns from him. No, he gave up his right to his guns when he consented to the condition of owner ship being that a permit was need to lawfuly own a gun and said permit was issued at the whim of the government.
He or any of us should not be surprised if at the whim of the government said permit should be revoked.

I will ask you to look into suporting and to patronize his shops; as, some have started a boycott.
I'm not sure how far he's going to take this in the courts. I would like this to go as far as possible, and I will do what I can to help.


I'm not big on whining, "Less talking, More doing," is what I like to say.

Final draft.

A New Day.

Why is it we place such importance on this day of January 1st?

Each day we wake up is an opportunity to start fresh.
Each day is a new begaining and an end to yesterday.
Each day we can say this is the day I try something new.
Each day brings a new hope that this day will be my day to shine.
Each day brings with it new opportunities and challenges.

A new day is upon us.  What will you do with it?
