New Years Day 1815

During the War of 1812 fighting the British (1812 is the name of the war) the fledgling American nations capital was burned and the British were boasting as to how little use the American militia was. Three miracles occurred one was when the British had left the Capital in triumph or so they thought God in all his wisdom did battle for us and sent several tornadoes through the unprotected British lines and they were left in ruin, little able to continue their march of terror.
  The second was that the nation did not prepare for defending the Grate Lakes So Oliver Hazard Perry was given an assignment to build a fleet on the shore of lake Erie and attacked the British. Perry having a shortage of canons built turrets so the canons could be turned from one side of the ship to the other. His ship took on the largest of the British ships and gave as good as he got but Perry's  ship was turned into a pile of splinters. With an unconquerable spirit he climbed into a rowboat and went to another of his ships whose captain did not do a close engagement of the enemy as ordered and Perry took command and attacked again finishing off the second largest British ship. Other American slower gun boats caught up and began firing on the remaining ships. The entire British fleet surrendered!  This victory allowed us to begin to recapture towns and villages that were taken and left us in to take command of the other Great Lakes as well.    
At the other end of the continent New Years 1815 proved as equally miraculous  as civilian troops began to form not regular army but militia knowing little why, they gathered like homing pigeons - men began to congregate to the city of New Orleans coming from as far as Kentucky. Andrew Jackson who would be a future president of this nation took leadership of some 4000 men in a battle that was Biblical in the form of being miraculous. Jan. 7, 1815 the well equipped British attacked with 10,000 men and Jackson's boys--militia using civilian arms and a few canons would beet the British. The British losses were over 2000 men American losses 13.
  At this new years let us remember that when we were a moral and good people that God preserved this nation when the odds were stacked against us. Richard W. Norman

War Hammer

When we think of weapons of war we sometimes look at the more modern weapons we are more familiar with. The war hammer we are most familiar with was in the mid evil time and was for the most part a three part device. One part of the head was blunt the other was pointed and would maim and the handle was a spike and could be used like a spear.
Usually a king would have a man with him who could use a war hammer when he went out of the castle and he could call upon the man to use it and even make a decision as to how it would be thrown. If the king called for the handle the king wanted the person killed, if the king called for the spike he wanted the person injured and if he called for the blunt he wanted the person stopped. The man using the hammer did this work by controlling the rotation upon release. The long handle allowed the user to carry a hammer with a lighter head but the longer handle would amplify the energy. The movies seldom if ever portrays the war hammer and we are accustom to seeing the spear, the lance, the ax the mace, yet in its earlier roots it probably was the blacksmith who used the original hammer in war as he had grown accustom to the feel in his hand and had passed out all the swords he had made to anyone who could carry one.
The two pictures above are from I am not acting as a sponsor and receive no royalties from mentioning the site I am simply accrediting the art wirk
  Most shields have a double holding device one you slide the arm through and the other one is a hand hold you hold with your closed fist. By calculating the position of the arm a blow with the blacksmith hammer would brake your opponents left arm and send him into shock and this would allow you to push the sword arm away with you shield. The next blow would be a head blow and you could then move on to the next man and repeat the processes. Though Thor is called the god of war with his mighty hammer, it is highly likely that such a legend had its roots as a blacksmith used his hammer in war.

Obama Review

Just so you know in Russia and Nazi Germany the pre-preparation for national disarmament required a lot of failed bills placed before their governments. This was not a wast of time nor were they failures. When the hammer fell they simply amassed all the failed bills and past them all at one time. This allowed these governments to permanently entomb their people in prison work and death camps. However no one lived long enough to finish their sentence.     

Historical Review 
On July 30th, U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) and U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) introduced legislation that would impose sweeping new--and not so new--restrictions on ammunition sales.

The bills, S. 3458 and H.R. 6241, are known as the “Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act.”  The bill itself has four elements: (1) A federal licensing requirement for ammunition sellers; (2) Recordkeeping on all ammunition sales; (3) Reporting of all sales of more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition to anyone without a federal firearms license within five consecutive business days; and (4) A photo identification requirement for all non-licensees buying ammunition, “effectively banning the online or mail order purchase of ammo by regular civilians.”

The two lawmakers’ contempt for “regular civilians” is nothing new, and neither are the first two of the requirements they propose. Starting in 1968, ammunition dealers had to have licenses from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and also had to keep records of purchasers. The recordkeeping requirement on .22 caliber rimfire ammunition was so burdensome that it was repealed in 1982. Congress did away with the remaining licensing and recordkeeping provisions as part of the "Firearms Owners’ Protection Act of 1986" after the BATF itself said the restrictions had “no substantial law enforcement value.”

If they pass laws against guns and ammo you will either make what you need at home or do without. In my book I discus reloading 22 ammo along with powder and primer making and a host of valuable information  on powder primers gun repair and construction.

Obama Revirw

Wayne La Pierre of the NRA Noted in an interview August 12, 2012 shown on AFF that he had totaled the gun laws on the books that could be used to prosecute some one and it came to be 275 years and under Obama the US attorney has had the lowest prosecution rate and they chose to not prosecute. Wayne notes that we have not only dishonesty in politics with agendas but also the media is working under the same agenda and dishonesty is the rule of the day in Washington and the press. 
    Freedom of the press can not include freedom to lie! Neither is it politically acceptable for our leaders!  Richard W. Norman

Squib Loads

Recently while at the dentist the lady cleaning my teeth was talking to her assistant about her husband bulging the barrel on his hand gun. (I spoke up and said that the gun shop owed him a gun and she said the gun shop fixed his old gun but it took over a year) Ammo has been at such a high price now that some gun shops are tempted to sell ammo they got in trade. She said her husband asked if the ammo was someones re-loads and the gun shop owner said "NO"! Going to the range he was not paying attention to the sound of the gun and the shell casing was empty as far as powder goes. The primer has just enough kick to drive the bullet into the barrel and the next shot fired bulged the barrel, and sometimes blows up the hand gun. ( And will blow up a rifle!)
  If you are buying ammo in old boxes, look at the shell casings for sizing marks factory ammo is many times sized by rollers and have no sizing marks. If you see sizing marks the ammo should be bought as components at a cheaper price and the bullet pulled the powder discarded and the primer fired in your gun and replaced (a magnum primer with the wrong loading data can also blow up a gun with a pressure spike). With the powder and primer replaced this will assure a good safer bullet and insure your safety.

Obama Review 2

From a speech given by Lou Pritchett April 15, 2012 

"I was born in year two of the Great Depression (1931) and spent the first 10 years of my life, influenced by the extreme hardships of the depression. --By today’s standards my family was about a mile below today’s so called ‘poverty level’; but if you never ‘had’ - - doing without was not so ‘bad’. Borrowing shoes to graduate from the 8th grade didn’t seem at all demeaning because most of the 8th graders did the same thing. 

In June 1944, my only brother, Joe, was killed in action on Utah Beach in Normandy, France during the D-Day landings. Exactly one year later, my father died and left me, my mother, and my sister to go it alone - - and alone we went. My mother went to work at a department store, my sister dropped out of school and joined her, and I went to work shining shoes on the streets of Memphis for a dime a shine. Government assistance was not available, and if it were, I am confident my mother would have refused it, because she never wanted the government involved in our lives. 

I mention this bit of personal history to help you understand that millions of Americans, including your parents and grandparents, grew up like me during the Great Depression and never expected nor wanted the government to offer them anything other than an opportunity - - and now to see what Obama is trying to do to our country tends to make you crazy. 

As some of you know, my “Scare Me" letter went viral with millions of hits on the internet during the past 3 years. I have now written a follow-up letter, which I will now share with you. 

To the editors: 

"In April 2009, I sent President Obama and the New York Times a letter titled "You Scare Me" because, as a candidate, he promised to "fundamentally transform America ." Now, after observing his performance for over three years, he no longer scares me - - he terrifies me for the following reasons: 

FIRST: He has done more to damage America 's standing in the world, to lower 
the standard of living in America, to impoverish future generations, and to shake our faith in the country's future than any other American president in history. 

SECOND: With a compliant Democrat congress, a lapdog media, and a weak, 
almost nonexistent Republican opposition, he has shattered the American dream of job security, home ownership, and rugged individualism for millions of Americans and has poisoned and divided our civil society with his politics of envy, class warfare, race warfare, and religious warfare - - which he is using as fundamental building blocks for his 'socialist' agenda. 

THIRD: Culturally, he remains totally out of touch with traditional American 
values. This has absolutely nothing to do with race or where he was born, rather it has everything to do with where, how and with whom he was raised, schooled, educated, trained, and associates with - - still today. 

FOURTH: He has surrounded himself with naive academicians, lawyers, politicians, bureaucrats, and socialist leaning czars who arrogantly think and behave exactly as he does. People who offer no balanced suggestions, or devil’s advocate positions, and think in lock step with him that big government is the answer to all our problems. 

FIFTH: He not only encourages, but aids and abets the unionization of all American industry, the albatross around the neck of the free market. In turn, they provide the money and muscle to intimidate his opponents. 

SIXTH: He has increased the national debt by over 30% in just three years. If re-elected, and this rate of increase continues, America will be burdened with an unsustainable 20 trillion dollar debt which will result in the country's financial death. Recovery will be impossible - -America will be the Greece of 2016. 

SEVENTH: Given his fanatical beholding to the 'environmental' and 'man-caused global warming' fringe, he has deliberately discouraged U.S. fossil fuel exploration and production, while wasting billions of tax payer dollars on solar, wind, and algae experiments. He refuses to accept that oil, gas, and coal are not America’s enemies, they are America’s assets - - which, properly managed, could make us energy independent within a generation. 

EIGHTH: He views the U.S. as a power in retreat which abused its World dominance. Therefore, he systematically apologizes round the world. This past March, he whispered to Russian President Medvedev - - "This is my last election. After my election, I will have more flexibility". Just what is the secret that Obama and Putin are concealing from the American people until after the election? With what other leaders has he made similar secret agreements? 

NINTH: And finally, after all his miss-steps, bad decision-making, poor management, and zero leadership, the fact that he has the audacity to seek 
re-election should terrify every American. 

I predict that if re-elected, future historians and political interpreters will look back at the eight-year period 2008-2016, and conclude "the 44 th President of the U.S. allowed the takers to overpower the payers, which resulted in the greatest economy in history vanishing from the face of the Earth". Farewell America, the World will really miss you!!" 

Lou Pritchett April 15, 2012 

It is my hope and prayer that this letter will also go viral and serve as a 'wake up' call to Americans of all political leaning - - convincing them that never before in U.S. history has so much depended on Americans understanding that we are facing one of the greatest crises in U.S. history. Convincing them that this election will be won not by letters to the editor, political speeches, or radio and TV sound bites. 

No!! It will be won by those with a conviction, with a belief, and with a willingness to pay the price in helping put the most enlightened voters in the polling booth on November 6. 

Let me end on my favorite quote - - which I think is very appropriate for each of us today: 


Those words spoken by Winston Churchill over 70 years ago are very appropriate for all Americans today. END

We Need to look at the specific attack on America

Iron Dome

Star wars defense system was a concept set up years ago by president Ronald Reagan though it was a futuristic goal it scared the pants off of the Russians and they wanted treaties to stop it. Some socialists in Washington were more concerned in making us vulnerable rather than making us secure.  So Russia and China wanted to do anything to stop us from making their nuclear arsenals obsolete to keep us from pursuing the Star Wars initiative. In Israel today Star Wars is here! Many Arab extremest groups have been showering Israel with rockets for decades 15,000 over the last 11 years  and over 1500 just in November 2012 alone  The lack of interest from Washington in providing Star Wars defense is astounding as some in politics over the last few decades have not only given aid and comfort to the enemy but supported treaties that would dismantle any hope of creating Stat Wars defense. 
   In rocket attacks on Israel today 85% of the incoming rockets are intercepted  This leaves 15%, yet these should not be considered a miss. The window from the time of an Arab rocket launch to impact on a Jewish city is 15 seconds during that time the Israelite ground unit determines the impact aria. If the rocket is to miss and fall into an open field then the Jews do not wast a rocket So this should really not be considered a miss. Washington is spending money on helping the people of Israel develop the system to placate us the voters at home but do not expect our elected officials to implement it as a nuclear deterrent. After all doing the right thing for the right reason has never stopped our politicians from doing the exact opposite. Israel has a Iron Dome missile system whose science and research budget is far less then ours and they have wasted no effort making their people safe. Yet our government has wasted every effort purposefully to insure we stay vulnerable. Is that what you call Iron Dumb? Richard W Norman

A Little Fun

The ability to play is critical to the longevity of our youthfulness. We grow old because we have forgotten how to play. We are allowed short periods of rest and relaxation to recharge, to refresh but God never intended us to have an endless vacation. Richard W Norman
