The Second Amendment is about giving the citizens of the United States the means to defend themselves against a tyrannical government; not hunting, not even self-defense against violent crime – although those aspects, especially the latter, are important in this day and age. This fact was made plain to me once again recently when my life was threatened and my wife, who is battling metastatic Colo-rectal and Liver cancer, was threatened with rape by some gang bangers on Twitter who objected to something I said about the rapper “The Game”.
Death threats have also come about as a result of my support for the Second Amendment as well, coming not just through comments on the internet but via messages left on my unpublished office telephone number. At least I’m not alone. Apparently all you have to do to earn a death threat from the progressive left is to be a Conservative of any flavor, a member of the National Rifle Association, or in disagreement with the current administration; a status that will also earn you the title “racist.”
In this episode of The Truth Is Viral, PPSimmons Television host and Social Media Director Mike Shoesmith talks about his views on gun confiscation; something he favors as long as the guns are confiscated from the right people. When he brings me on as his guest, Mike and I talk in detail about the threats being made against my family and the character of the type of scumbags who would threaten to rape a woman who has nothing to do with this, has done absolutely nothing to earn such a threat, and who is fighting for her life from an insidious disease.
This episode ends with the latest update on the “Million Man March,” a 50 State 2nd Amendment demonstration sponsored by the Facebook group 2nd Right on Facebook, to be held on the state capitol steps of every state in the Union on February 8th from 10 a.m. until Noon. In Michigan the demonstration will be cosponsored by The Truth Is Viral and I will be speaking in defense of the Constitution in general and the 2nd Amendment in particular.
The Truth Is Viral will be broadcasting the Lansing event live at www.livestream.com/ttivlive and www.bambuser.con/ttivlive courtesy of Occupy Detroit, and my guests will include 10th Congressional District Republican candidate Don Volaric and members of Michigan’s law enforcement community. It is particularly heartening to note that so many ideologically diverse groups are coming together to defend the Constitution and speak out with one voice, “We will not submit to Tyranny.”
I'd like to thank everyone who has kept my wife and me in your thoughts and prayers, especially to those who were moved to donate towards a new computer. I was only able to raise $450, and with so much work to do before the demonstration I had to have a new computer as soon as possible; so I covered the balance - and gas money to go to Lansing - out of our household budget for February. If DeLynn knew she'd kill me; but this is our last, best hope to peacefully redress the government with our grievances, and I wasn't about to let the Devil, or anyone else, get in the way of me leading this battle.
We found out a few days ago that our application for Medicaid and food stamps was denied, the reason given being that I made too much money from this show. What a joke. I average $150 a month from the ad revenue this show generates, and all of the donations went to cover the show's operating costs. I have, in fact, lost a considerable amount of money producing TTiV; I have yet to see a penny in profit.
I provided all of the income statements that Social Services required, along with my expenses, for a negative balance. Google only pays me if the show earns more than $100 in a calendar month, and some months I don't get a check at all. So I asked how that was supposed to work; did I need to give them a monthly report or what? I was honest with them when they asked, but none of my questions have ever been answered.
The last time we spoke to Social Services our worker made my wife cry, literally, and we haven't heard back from her since. Four phone calls asking for assistance with our application have gone unanswered, and when I went in to lodge a complaint with her boss I was instructed to leave him a note; which I did and has yet to be acknowledged.
Do you see how they are trying to silence me? Not only does the local news media refuse to cover the story of a guy with a gun passing out flyers downtown, a huge story in this little hamlet, but now I'm being told - in a roundabout way - to shut down The Truth Is Viral or my family will be made to pay the price. In other words, if I would just sit down and shut up, they will cover the Medicare premiums for my wife and I ($100 a month apiece) and give us food stamps so we don't starve.
I will NOT shut up! People are dying, and many more people are about to die, and it is my responsibility as a human being to save as many of those people as possible. I'm willing to give my life for this cause; do they really think that they can shut me up by threatening to not let me suck on the government tit?
I feel like I'm finally doing with my life that which God always intended. I don't know why I resisted Him for so long, but I have finally submitted fully to His will. I am confident that He, through my loyal viewers, will provide for the needs of my family. At the moment I need another $300 to break even this month. If you have the ability, please consider making a donation at the Paypal account on the right. Donations of any amount are appreciated, but donations of $100 or more will buy you a TTiV T-shirt in addition to the knowledge that you did what you could to support the cause of freedom.
God bless you all,
Semper Fi, and Ooh Rah,
