Right on my fellow intellects! Welcome to another episode!
Today’s bit o trivia: Caryl Chessman. This was a bad dude that ran around LA/ So. Cal for many years. Started out stealing cars and going to juvi. Steal; juvi. Then, robbery paid better so he did that… and would go to prison for a bit and get out. Then, he started doing robberies of people when they pulled up to stop lights. Well, one night he did a robbery and the victims girlfriend ended up being pulled out of the car. The robbery failed, the boyfriend drove off leaving the girlfriend in the clutches of Caryl. He then kidnapped and raped her. Well, he ended up before Judge Fricke from episode 17 who sentenced Caryl to the gas chamber (that’s death). Which made Caryl the first in modern times to be sentenced to death for a non-fatal crime.
Think About it Thursday Ed-vise today
Bit annoyed these last few days. Why? I’ve been brewing on what I wrote about a business in a small town being protested by a bunch of 2Aers.
See, everyone puts emphasis on the different Civil Rights amendments. The 2Aers (NRA) love flaunting their guns and shoot their mouth off about their “Gun Rights.” Then, when a business owner says “No Guns Allowed” the NRA pipes off with how in danger their gun rights are and start showing off their guns until they shoot themselves in the groin.
Which brings me here, today. Think about this question: Why do we find the 2nd Amendment in the 4th Article of the Constitution (after the 1st Amendment)?
Add to that question this one: Why do we find Commerce (business) and money and taxes in the 1st Article?
Hmmm. Maybe it’s because the founders were more interested in BUSINESS and people making money than they were in private gun ownership. So, if you think about it, by weight of precedence, gun rights take a back seat to business ownership. OOOOOHHH.
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember your gun will not protect you from yourself being out of shape.
