It has begun...
As I warned recently, we have enemies. The first volleys of fire are coming from the R's, who think our position is too "fringe" and undermines their credibility, and we do damage to the Constitution.
In my new Kindlier, Gentler Kerodin, I'm letting it go.
A blog war over distractions that everyone on this blog has already seen a dozen times is pointless. If you've read my books, followed this blog, followed Kerodin.com, you know more about me than does my mother. I do not hide. I put my name on everything I do. You know I do not suffer fools, like employees who sue my company for commissions they have not earned. You know I am not afraid to enter Federal Court against a $250 million dollar per year corporation for Service Mark Infringement and other crimes. You know that I will fight, win or lose (yes, once in a while I get handed my arse) but fight I will.
But III Arms and the Citadel are too important to get distracted in silly debates that we've already been through countless times. So I won't do it.
There are only 4 people I have ever banned from this site, 2 of which happened today.
(For anyone wondering, it was not Dan who asked hard, prudent questions. Those are welcome. Exposing our weaknesses is a useful exercise. Ridicule is not.)
There are more than 40 Members involved in III Arms Company. Holly serves as President, and Jim will serve as her Second because the man has the business skills and the firearms skills to make III Arms a success. I will remain involved, but my strong suit is concepts, sales and marketing, and helping to get the company pointed in the proper direction. Then I will apply my skills to developing the Citadel.
By the way, at this moment not one person is taking a dime in payroll.
Without getting into details, we did not even use III Arms money to pay for our first 1911 prototype.
Proceeds from the company will go to building the Citadel, as we have discussed.
Our first prototypes (1911 & AR) will be ready for Brock's PatCon.
Why do I feel the need to post this warning? Consider it simply fair warning to anyone who would seek to do harm to our Founders and our Supporters by any means, by offering factually inaccurate information, casting aspersions, et cetera. My warning is now on the record. Reaching a suitable level for Tortuous interference, among other things, is easy in a Federal Complaint. If you don't like what we are doing, change the channel and leave us alone.
For you Founders and Supporters, I will fight anywhere, anytime, by any means necessary for you.
