Fighting Terrorism: Europe vs. Texas

There are no simple answers to Islamist terrorism, particularly when individual nutjobs are determined to kill a  bunch of innocent people.

But I know that some answers to the problem are wrong. So when politicians like Hillary Clinton say we should have more gun control, I side with police chiefs who recognize that an armed citizenry is a much more effective approach.

Simply stated, we’re dealing with evil people who want to maximize death, so they pick out places where they are less likely to encounter armed resistance.

The European response to terrorism is especially insipid. Law-abiding people are disarmed while terrorists have no problems obtaining all the guns they need.

Which leads to terrible consequences with tragic regularity.

I’m not sure how to categorize this sarcastic look at how Europe responds to a terror attack compared to how Texas responds, but it does make the key point that it’s better to shoot back than die meekly.

Consider this the terrorism version of the joke comparing how the governors of Texas and California respond to a coyote attack.*

Though this is a deadly serious issue, not a joking matter.

P.S. If you want some genuine terror-related humor, look at the bottom of this post.

P.P.S. And if you want something truly pathetic, look at how statists try to rationalize terrorism.

 

*The Coyote Joke

CALIFORNIA: The Governor of  California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps  out, bites the Governor and attacks his dog.

1. The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects  upon the movie “Bambi” and then realizes he should stop; the coyote is  only doing what is natural.

2. He calls animal control. Animal Control  captures the coyote and bills the State $200 testing it for diseases and $500  for relocating it.

3. He calls a veterinarian. The vet collects  the dead dog and bills the State $200 for testing it for diseases.

4. The Governor goes to hospital and spends  $3,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting his  bite wound bandaged.

5. The running trail gets shut down for  6 months while Fish & Game conducts a $100,000 survey to  make sure the area is free of dangerous animals.

6. The Governor spends $50,000 in state funds to  implement a “coyote awareness” program for residents of the area.

7. The State Legislature spends $2 million  to study how to better treat rabies and how to permanently  eradicate the  disease throughout the world.

8. The Governor’s security agent is  fired for not stopping the attack somehow and for letting the  Governor attempt to intervene.

9. Additional cost to State of California:  $75,000 to hire and train a new security agent with additional special  training re: the nature of coyotes.

10. PETA protests the coyote’s  relocation and files suit against the State.

TEXAS: The Governor of Texas is  jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A Coyote jumps out, bites  the Governor’s leather boot, and attacks his dog.

1. The Governor shoots the coyote with his State-issued  pistol and keeps jogging. The Governor has spent $0.50 on a .45 ACP  hollow
point cartridge.

2. The buzzards eat the dead coyote.

And that, boys and girls, is why California is  broke………..

    Most of Californica’s ills are illustrated and/or alluded to in that joke.

    Places like Europe and California and Connecticut are dead. The people are little more than walking corpses who only take a breath when the government tells them too. Europe will be a 100% Sharia society in 20 years and the Liberal states in the USA will be overrun with illegals and welfare generation criminals.

    Ah, but they will expect us to fund their idiocy.

    Mr. Magoo O’bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

    That’s funny to this Texas bred,born and raised boy. Progressive socialism @ it’s best!

    It is important for Mrs. Clinton to disarm Americans, so that she may make them more easily vassals to Militant Murdering Islam, and/or Communist-Socialism so that she can be seen as completing her pre-paid cash pact with her foreign co-conspirators such as Iran, and the Moslem Brotherhood, and of course we must not forget her promises to our own Moslem President Obama to keep up with his plotting program.

    That is only if we stay on the road that we are on, and continue to do nothing, and follow orders given to us by our rulers who once upon a time were only our representatives.

    50 cents for a .45 ACP round….. old joke…. very old…. : )

  • R. T.

    I LIKE THE TEXAS WAY .

    There are many people living in California who are active in fighting against Sharia.
    We need to get the word out that not all Californians are Liberal. Incidentally ACT FOR AMERICA is alive and well and growing throughout this state and others.

    Isn’t capitalism great?

  • Ddville

    What is ACT FOR AMERICA?

  • Ddville

    “law abiding people are disarmed”….. What law abiding people have been disarmed? Your needle is stuck in the groove. There are many ways to apply more gun control without taking away firearms. You conservatives love to lie, exaggerate and make up stories that aren’t true. How about spending your time on policy making for the country!

  • Ddville

    How long have you had rectal/cranial inversion. You need to see your proctologist.

  • proudmomoffive

    Except the joke doesn’t work because our very Catholic and conservative Texas Governor has been in a wheelchair since he was 26 years old due to an accident. He was jogging by the way, when the accident happened. So, before the accident, this might as well have been true. I was going to forward this to my fellow Texan friends, but it is really awkward since we all know the Governor.

  • proudmomoffive

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!! YOU…..ARE…..TOTALLY…..BEING……IGNORED!!!!! The best way to deal with zombie brainless trolls!

  • Ddville

    You don’t have to shout…..but then maybe you do because of your lack of any intelligence…..the fact that no one engages me tells me they are unable to challenge me on a common sense approach to the issue. You, for instance had an opportunity but you blew it with your simple simon rhetoric…..Sorry!

  • Digistar

    Ddville, you simpid juvenile libturd idiot, how does your moronic rhetoric sound now that we have a real conservative president? Seems to me libturds like you can crawl back under whatever rock you have been living under the past 30 years!
