Visiting communist occupied America

Over the holidays, the family and I went to NYC. Only occasionally did I get a whiff of piss and sewage. Seems to have cleaned up a bit since my last trip there. And, the only thing I really like about NYC, is the food. Had some good stuff.

My daughter wanted to go because of several pop culture related things. The kids had fun spending their time mostly shopping. Here’s the Freedom Tower:

And the most interesting thing I saw was actually in the Nintendo store. A game boy damaged in the first gulf war that still runs:

Oh, and for those who will ask, I carried a pocket knife and POM pepper spray. Both are legal there.

    NYC is actually a pretty cool city to visit, if you accept that it is well behind the Iron Curtain, and most of the denizens like it that way.

    Lots to do, see, eat, buy, or flirt with. But I wouldn’t want to live there.

    There’s nothing a slave state has that would entice me. Barring some unforeseen dire reason, I’m not traveling to any place that denies the basic right of armed self defense. It’s bad that government lawlessness allows one or more of the BOR to be flagrantly violated anywhere in the USA. That was the reason for the 14th Amendment, one of the two, along with the 13th, which supposedly ended slavery!

    I’m the same way Ron. There are places that I will not ever go to because of the un-Constitutionalism of those places. Most definitely not New York, New Jersey, Maryland, and all the New England states.

    There’s a reason Nintendo fans use the term “Nintendonium” to refer to the durability of their handhelds and consoles, their hardware is damned robust. In 25+ years of owning and collecting Nintendo systems I can count on one finger the number that have failed me.

    Business trips forced me to spend time in NYC during the 90’s and early 2000’s. Constitutional rights aside, in my view the place is way overpriced and way too crowded.

    My last trip there was in August of 2001 and when the airplane wheels lifted from the runway to fly me back to Dixie, a Hank Jr. lyric popped in my mind: “I just don’t fit in and I’m never going back again”. And I haven’t been back there since.

    This exerpt from the 1857 SCOTUS Dred Scott decision shows why I use the term “slave states”. Slavery was ruled legal in the U.S. Just as with black people then, the chief historical aspect of slavery is to disarm them and keep them that way:

    “If black people were entitled to the privileges and immunities of citizens, it would exempt them from the special laws and from the police regulations which southern States considered to be necessary for their own safety.
    It would give to the persons of the Negro race, who were recognized as citizens in any one State of the Union…THE FULL LIBERTY OF SPEECH IN PUBLIC and in private upon all subjects upon which its own citizens might speak; to hold public meetings upon political affairs, AND TO KEEP AND CARRY ARMS WHEREVER THEY WENT.
    And all of this would be done in the face of the subject race of the same color, both of free and slaves, inevitably producing discontent and insubordination among them, and endangering the peace and safety of the State.”

    –1857 SCOTUS, Dred Scott vs. Sanford, majority opinion, keeping black people as non citizens and slaves.

    The enactment of the 13th and 14th Amendments LAWFULLY overturned this, but LAWLESS legislation and judiciary is keeping slavery in place–today! Let that sink in.

    Only certain knives are legal in NYC. Read up on the law before visiting, and keep them 100% out of sight (no visible clips).

    @Mike, and watch for “no weapons” signs and metal detectors where you may be forced to empty your pockets.
