This Messed Up World.

Tom's Journal.

Hi Friends, and Fellow Christians,
      I thought I was thru  posting today until I read,  "THE DAILY JOT" --- by Bill Wilson.
      Sometimes I get involved with commenting in various web sites and discussions, and I find that some folks are 'SUPER PATRIOTIC.'   Well,  I consider myself a Patriot too, after all,  being a Disabled Combat Veteran -- Vietnam: 68-70, etc., and that at least GIVES ME THE RIGHT AND FREEDOM to say what I want, in the good old USA, no more -- no less !   
     Remember that I am a History buff and also a serious student of the KJV Bible, and I know that our ancient ancestors migrated quite a bit, going from bad, dry, land to more fertile land to grow their crops and grains, etc.  No big deal there.   I also got involved with an Ethnicity web site to investigate my heritage and was surprised to find out [according to them] that my DNA put me in the British Isles, Scandinavia and Western Europe --Germany.    Wow!  No wonder I am a wild ass ...  LOL !   But,  the power of the Holy Spirit, thankfully, has changed much of my personality,  even as I am a "work in progress" and the Lord certainly is not done smoothing out/ off the rough spots.   But, my fellow Christians:   Isn't it a miracle and wonderful thing how God sacrificed His only begotten Son,  Jesus Christ, so that ALL OF OUR SINS could be forgiven, and going to heaven is more than just a "Maybe" or an illusive dream.  It's a firm God-breathed reality, and we Christians are charged with the dual responsibility of:   Worshiping God the Father, and also sharing the Good News of Salvation thru Jesus Christ ! !   So.....  We are Christians FIRST, and Americans second.  Period.   
        Go figure that all the Christians in 'under ground China' number more than Europe and the USA, combined !   We are no better and no worse than them...  they are our brothers in Christ!     They in China are praying for US !   Too,  I am hurt, upset and dismayed that my ancestral home of Germany has reverted back into a commercial, Heathen - Pagan, country, as they too persecute true Christians,  but allow the savage Islamic hordes invade THEIR native country of Germany !   Hey!  They are only asking for big trouble there, and I thought they were so smart and advanced,  but they are Socialist !     Really, folks,  God doesn't look at humans being so different ---  but what's in their minds and hearts, and IF THEY ACCEPT HIS SON as their Savior....    I spent 6 months in Germany and got to learn their culture and studied the language [and still am].   They are a beautiful race of humans,  but what good is it if they don't bend knee to Christ ?   But it's the same old thing here in the U.S. with 8 good, Christian black leaders and teachers of the bible being gunned down by a goofy, racist white guy in a historic  mid-Atlantic church a few months ago.  What a loss of good lives... and if they indeed were TRUE CHRISTIANS -- they were my brothers,  also up in Heaven now.  

Enjoy the great short article.

This messed up world

Wow. The headlines this morning. "Jihadis generate $500 million from oil as US-led air strikes miss target," "Man dresses as priest, performs sex act at church altar," "China military ready for USA encounter--space-based weapons," "Asylum seekers sue Germany for not paying them benefits fast enough," "Parents outraged after schoolchildren asked to make beds, cook for migrants," "Refugees taunt police by posting pictures of stolon goods," "New California law helps illegals with drug convictions to stay," "314 criminal aliens arrested in Florida for murder, child sex crimes," "Iran broadcasts footage of underground missile base," and there are many, many more. Wow, what a messed up world.

I was watching the Western Channel as I often do to escape from reality and as a reminder of what once was. An episode of Gunsmoke had Doc being called out to a farm to treat the sick cow of a farmer who hated doctors. While he was there, a woman in town bled to death after falling through the window. The farmer refused to pay Doc because the cow might die and because doctors "don't know anything." Doc punched the farmer. The farmer stabbed Doc. Matt Dillon had to sew Doc up before he bled to death. Later, as Doc recovered, the farmer became gravely ill and his young son came to get Doc. Doc, although not healthy enough to travel, went to save the farmer's life even though the farmer had tried to kill him.

Why? "Because I'm a doctor and there is a life that needs to be saved. And I might be able to do it," he replied. So Matt loaded Doc in the buckboard and they went out to the farm. Doc was successful. The farmer lived. But he still refused to pay Doc because the cow had died. The farmer's wife, however, told Doc that she was forever grateful for his good will despite her husband's refusal to thank him or pay him. Doc and Matt looked at each other and Matt said, "I think you just got paid." Doc smiled and nodded his head in agreement and the two walked out. This is an example of American exceptionalism. It is an example of how we as a people once thought and acted in times of adversity and injustice. 

We didn't cry to the government that we were being treated unfairly. We didn't run to the law every time something went wrong. We didn't deny others decency even when they were ignorant or indecent to us. We knew what it was to be a Christian first, an American second, and to stand for what was just and right. We were taught to live by Jesus' words in Matthew 7:12, "Therefore all things whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets." Translated: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. The Golden Rule. It was the root of American society. We can see what happens to a world when that root bears fewer branches. The world becomes messed up.

How Obama Ushered in the New Age of Christian Martyrdom

ISIS crucified Christian
(GATESTONE INSTITUTE)—Everywhere that U.S. leadership helped Islamic jihadis topple secular autocrats in the name of "democracy and freedom," indigenous Christian minorities are forced either to convert to Islam or die.
Many are accepting death.
Most recently, on August 28 near Aleppo, the Islamic State (IS or ISIS) tortured, mutilated, publicly raped, beheaded and crucified 12 Christians for saying they "would never renounce Christ" for Muhammad.
The jihadis took one group in front of a large crowd. They cut off the fingertips of a 12-year-old boy, who steadfastly refused to submit to Islam. They "severely beat him, telling his father they would stop the torture only if he, the father, returned to Islam." He refused, so they "also tortured and beat him and the two other ministry workers. The three men and the boy then met their deaths in crucifixion."
According to a Christian leader associated with the martyrs, "They were left on their crosses for two days. No one was allowed to remove them." A sign saying "INFIDELS" was placed next to their crosses.
The other eight Christians, including two women, aged 29 and 33, were also ordered to renounce Christ and embrace Islam before a large crowd. When they refused,
"The Islamic extremists then publicly raped the women, who continued to pray during the ordeal, leading the ISIS militants to beat them all the more furiously.
"As the two women and the six men knelt before they were beheaded, they were all praying.
"'Villagers said some were praying in the name of Jesus, others said some were praying the Lord's prayer, and others said some of them lifted their heads to commend their spirits to Jesus,' the ministry director said. "One of the women looked up and seemed to be almost smiling as she said, 'Jesus!'"
"After they were beheaded, their bodies were hung on crosses, the ministry director said."
The same is happening in the two other Arab nations where the U.S., under the pretext of "freedom and democracy," overthrew the secular dictators who had long kept a lid on the jihadis: Libya and Iraq.
Late last year, Andrew White, an Anglican priest known as the "Vicar of Baghdad," recounted the horrific atrocities against Christians in Iraq—including seeing their children chopped in half for refusing to embrace Islam:
"ISIS turned up and they said to the [Christian] children, 'You say the words [shehada, convert to Islam], that you will follow Muhammad.' And the children, all under 15, four of them, they said, 'No, we love Jesus [Yesua]. We have always loved Jesus. We have always followed Jesus. Jesus has always been with us." They [ISIS] said, 'Say the words!' They [children] said, 'No, we can't.' [White starts sobbing] They chopped all their heads off. How do you respond to that? You just cry. They are my children. That is what we have been going through. That is what we are going through."

Important: The Ammo you Use.

Tom's Journal.

Hi Friends,
   One of the worst things that could happen to me in the world,  would be:  to kill or hurt an innocent human being.   In the "fog of war",  "friendly fire" and terrible accidents will/  do  happen.  Period.  There are so many different ways that accidents can and do happen in Battle/ War,  but the U.S. Army and other Armed Services try to keep that to a minimum by teaching the Soldiers and Sailors to 'speech a special fool proof language,'  and give the Alphabet certain voice qualities to eliminate mistakes.   It's sort of like a 'Tech Talk.'   Alfa, Bravo, Charlie, Delta, Echo, etc.    But still, if the Platoon leader, especially a very green Lieutenant, calls in a particular grid location for the Artillery people to concentrate their live fire mission... and gets it wrong -- on either end of the communications,  innocent people / 'friendlies' will get hurt.  

I want to share important articles like this one, so that more people can learn to practice SAFE  Concealed Carry missions / operations, so as not to hurt the wrong people.  Please share this if you think it has merit.   

I look forward to the Rapture and Heaven,  where we will never need to pack fire arms !!   
    In the meantime many Nations on Earth seek to take away all of our firearms so that it will be easier to "CONTROL" the people and force them to comply with Agenda 21,  the NWO system,  where there is no free speech or freedom of worship...   especially for those of us who are Christians !   That is Obama's REAL agenda,  and not one of 'safety.'   Anyone who believes otherwise is totally ignorant and being misled by the devil.  
    IMHO,  Both political parties are guilty of over loading the Welfare system, bringing in illegal aliens, who actually hate American and the Northern European countries that house and feed them, and those savages do not want to ever assimilate  into the guest countries, but only rape and destroy them.    But Socialists like Obama are using multiple ways to collapse our Republic system.   Socialism has always been an enemy of God !   So you must remember that gun hating people are only part of the universal problem !
     Some folks will understand this ---  but most will give in--  give up to the Beast/  NWO.   So it is written --- in the KJV Bible. 

Warm Regards,

Do You Use FMJ As Your Carry Ammo?

Do You Use FMJ As Your Carry Ammo?
By Brandon – Republished with Permission from Concealed Nation.
I was taken aback during a conversation with someone I had just met, after we learned that each of us carries a firearm. For the purposes of this story, we’ll call him Don.
Don is a 30-something financial adviser with a well-kept beard and an infectious personality. We began to talk after he had overheard me talking to another person in line at the coffee shop. Long story short, we both have the same client. “Oh yes, she is a delight to work with! I’ve known her for years!”, he said. As both of us are friends with the coffee shop owner, he quickly introduced us to each other.
Somehow, our conversation turned to firearms.
Before we knew it, were were talking about our EDC’s and even the type of ammo we carry. As our conversation evolved, he said flat out, “I carry FMJ ammo in my Shield 9mm because it’s cheaper than the fancy hollow points and will likely get the job done.”
So many things immediately began to run through my mind, like the world was going to end if he ever had to pull the trigger in self-defense. What happens if he has to do that one day, and what would the repercussions be that could come from using target ammo for self-defense. Let’s just say, I wouldn’t want to be the one in a courtroom trying to explain certain situations.

For anyone new to firearms that doesn’t know the difference between FMJ (Full Metal Jacket) and JHP (Jacketed Hollow Point), here it is in a photograph:
Basically what will happen if you shoot someone in self-defense with FMJ is this: That bullet is going to go straight through your target and continue on to whatever may be behind it. If it’s a wall, it could go right through that as well and keep going.
Instead, if you use a JHP round for self-defense, the bullet is designed to open up upon impact in order to expand. This expansion creates a wound cavity and will also slow the round down so that it’s likely not to continue beyond your target with much force, if it makes it out at all.
One of the most dangerous things that can happen if using FMJ for self defense, is hitting another person that happens to be beyond your target. With FMJ rounds, many are definitely capable of going through multiple people.
Here is a picture showing various FMJ bullets after impact. In this example, they were fired at (and through) phone books:

Now let’s take a look at what a JHP bullet will do after it’s impacted the intended target. The example below shows various rounds after being fired into ballistic gel:
Photo Credit:
It’s obvious from the photos above that JHP bullets are meant to do damage to the intended target and based on the way they expand, are less likely to continue on and potentially endanger another life past the intended target.
Another thing to think about is stopping power. There is more stopping power in a JHP bullet since it’s expanding upon impact, literally tearing flesh and organs. This is the purpose of these rounds and what they are designed to do; to stop a threat from advancing. If you were to instead use FMJ, the wound channel created would be much smaller compared to the former. That threat could still be very much headed in your direction even after a few shots.
Moving on to Don’s comment on price, I’m not quite sure if he was joking. Truth be told, there is a ton of self-defense ammo that’s comparable in price to FMJ, it’s just a matter of finding it. One great place to find self-defense ammo in bulk and on the cheap is Freedom Munitions. I personally train with what I carry, and it all comes from FM. This is the exact ammo that I use for both range and carry.
Without sounding like a know-it-all, I poked around a bit to try and figure out how long Don has been around firearms. It turns out it’s been about a year, and he has been carrying for roughly half that time. Somehow, he neglected to do research into the different kinds of ammo available, and what is appropriate — and not appropriate — for carry.
We spoke some more about the differences between the types of ammo outlined above, and he acknowledged hearing of JHP but didn’t think much of it when shopping around. He basically picked up a few boxes of cheap target ammo, threw some in his Shield 9mm, and started carrying it around.
What it all boils down to is putting in the time to research the different options available, and find out what makes sense for different applications. Carrying a firearm is one of those things that requires this time and dedication to learn all that you can, and train properly.
I hope that Don comes over to the world of proper self-defense ammo, and I hope that he never has to use it.
