The Rule of Sgt Schultz

For better than a decade, I have been referring to The Rule of Sgt Schultz, or simply the Rule of Schultz.

Some are puzzled by this phrase.

To me it seemed pretty simple, but quite often we tend to think that all of our thoughts make sense. It is a reference to the Hogan’s Heroes character, Sgt Schultz.

Whenever he knew or saw something that he shouldn’t he would exclaim “I hear nothing, I see nothing, I know nothing!”

 

This is The Rule of Sgt Schultz.

“Citizen’s Petition to Secede from th United States”

I try to level my “conspiracy theorist” mentality with a good dose of rational thinking, so understand that I write this out of true concern.

There is a lot going around about the “citizen’s petitions for secession from the United States”, two dozen states have citizens doing this right now. First, citizens can’t do this, it requires a proclamation from the State, so sending this to the federal government does no good, petition you state representatives. Second, I believe this is a bigger risk than most of you realize, that is what I’m here to explain.

I looked into the site last night, it is completely legit as far as to what it claims to be, but that is the problem. It is a site set up by the Obama administration to field “complaints” about his administration. A petition isn’t even viewable by the public until it has 1000 signatures, after that you have the remainder of 30 days from the original creation to get 25,000 signatures or it is scrubbed from the system automatically. At 25,000 signatures, it red flags a government worker to look into it. So far it sounds innocent enough. Now for the bad part. In a case like this, signing would make you, in the eyes of the administration, and enemy of the state. In order to “sign” the petition you must register with the (government) site, required information being your name, e-mail, and address. Now you have just posted, on a federal website, your complete identity and location and that you are an enemy to the state. You have just but yourself on the federal watch list!

When the “fit hits the shan” who’s houses do you think will be the first hit, and who’s guns do you think will be the first seized? If you have signed this petition for you state already, I would suggest you keep one good rifle close and hide the rest somewhere safe and away from your property. If you haven’t signed one, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T!

The proper course is to write or petition your state representatives, the Governor and Lieutenant Governor.

One last thought, WHERE IS UNCLE TED?!

I was out of sorts and schedule over the weekend.

I did not have any posts scheduled for the weekend like I thought that I had.

I will make sure that the rest of the week is covered before I go to bed tonight.

It looks like I left my work computer logged into the chatroom over the weekend. It has gotten so little activity lately that I am starting to forget to check in on it. I wish I could leave my speakers turned up so I could hear if someone enters.

I am now in my four days of night shift. I will be in the office from 2pm-1am.
