Recipe for disaster

This new push for gun control has disaster written all over it. The public stunts are not helping matters in the least.

So far we have had a man make a public statement by cutting his personal rifle into three pieces. Using the hash tag one less. Now mind you that neither him nor his rifle had any part of the shooting in Parkland, Fl. The rifle in question is his personal property and what he did to it is his business. All he has done is to make a public spectacle of himself. Some people will do anything for attention, we call them attention whores. He could have done what he did in private, if the act made him feel better about himself, but no he had to make a spectacle.

A list of Florida lawmakers was published who had received campaign donations from the NRA. Republican lawmakers, of course. Now I am not necessarily against revealing what politicians or candidates receive political donations and who or what made the donation. As you can guess the list was on republicans, not a democrat in the lot. Now I don’t know if any democrats receive political donations from the NRA or not. But this release is purely agenda driven, the agenda of the left. I do not recall any such release of politicians or candidates when the sale of baby body parts came out sometime back. There was no such list released of democrats who had received political campaign donations from the providers of abortion, there may have been some republicans on that list as well. I also did not see a list of politicians or candidates who received donations from Big Pharma, the ones who profit mightily by manufacture and sale of prescription drugs.

The Mayor Pro Tem of Dallas, Texas don’t want the NRA to come to town for their annual convention. The convention is planned for May but he wants it moved to another city. He wants to put the citizens first, and finds that hosting the convention at this time to be inappropriate. I will now use a line from the story that the man in question used, and ask the good citizens of Dallas, how did this man become an official? He asserted that the NRA “needs to step up to the plate” by establishing better gun laws.(Now this man either misspoke or does not understand who it is that makes laws. The NRA cant establish better gun laws, because the NRA does not have the Constitutional authority to make any laws, none whatsoever.)He then said that while he is a “believer” in the second amendment, “we should not allow people to possess assault rifles and weapons”. If we the people should not be allowed to possess assault rifles and weapons just what part of the Second Amendment is he a “believer” in? God help Texas. The same article on Bing.com news went on to give a total of how much money was given to support President Trump and how much money was spent in opposition to HRC. It also named the top 5 senators and the top 5 congressmen with the most contributions from the NRA.

A Hollywood type has announced he will make a $500,000 donation to help offset the expense of the March for Our Lives event in D.C. and march with the kids. He could have sent an anonymous donation to help offset the costs. He could have also just showed up and walked with kids. But no, he had to make a public announcement. Another attention whore, back in the news and in the spotlight. I am quite sure that many more will follow suit, each with their own announcement. Will they be doing it for the kids or for their own personal aggrandizement? I am quite sure also that some music people will show up as well. Thing is that most Hollywood types have made a real good living making violent movies and the music types have made a good living promoting a culture of disrespect and violence. One a side note, I just wonder how many kids that will be participating in the protests and marches went to see the newest and latest violent Hollywood production over the weekend. How many more will go see it between now and the planned events. Reports are that the movie has made a lot of money.

Protests and marches and counter-protests and counter marches there is bound to be some intermingling. There are some that are counting on such interactions. There may even be some arranging such an interaction. Wall to wall coverage is guaranteed, given that there is and was ample notification.

As brought up in the last post the left has done an apparently splendid job of creating a new generation that is almost totally leftist. The education(indoctrination)system is left of center, the MSM is left of center, some are extremely left of center. The kids in the public(government)school system have been exposed to the leftist mantra since pre-school. The government is the cure-all. Soon some of them will enter the world of politics. What will be on their agenda?

Most everyone says something has to be done. There is no one saying do nothing an just let it run its course.

As of now there are two prevailing paths and two sides. One side proposes to train and arm teachers and staff to provide safety for the kids in school. This has somewhat limited traction, limited in the sense that the left is totally opposed to this path. The other side believes that more gun control laws is the answer. The legal and lawful gun owners are against further restrictions.

The school shooting in Parkland, Florida may prove to be “the straw that broke the camels back” when it comes to gun rights and gun control. It appears that a line has been drawn, sides will be chosen. I don’t think there will be any fence sitters on this issue.

This will depend on how determined the students and their supporters are. A lot will depend on the longevity and intensity of the protests and marches. There is also the wild-card chance of violence breaking out. There is an election coming up in November. Most high school students are ineligible to vote, but their parents vote, if they are eligible. It is with little wonder why the left is willing to let anybody vote. It also depends on how much sway the activist students, their supporters and their parents have on the middle of the road republican politicians.

We are about to go through interesting times my friend.

Maybe there is a solution where both sides of this issue get what they want, a fresh idea so to speak. I have an idea that might just fit the bill, revealed in the next post.

Southern Born, Southern Proud

This post will in most likelihood send the farcebook censors running for their safe-places and frankly I don’t give a rat’s behind. The time is upon us where we must make and take a stand. We Southrons(Southerners)must do all we can to preserve our Heritage and preserve our Rights as Southrons and Christians.

Think on this. How many times have we been lectured too about being tolerant of others? Yet, we are not tolerated, we are ridiculed.

We are expected to be tolerant of gays and lesbians, I believe they are called the LBGT community, I also understand that a whole plethora of other letters have been added to their description. But no letter they have claimed indicates that they welcome those of us who are straight(normal). We are expected to be welcoming to them yet they are not expected to be welcoming of us. So much for tolerance and reciprocity. If this crap keeps up we will all be expected to be a part of the LBGT community. No Thanks.

Think about how many times per day you and I see the symbols of the LBGT and what ever letter they now have affixed to their movement. Whether it be on the media outlets or within our own sight. We are expected to react positively or not to react at all. We cant claim to be offended, for if we did we would be called homophobic. We cant run to our “safe-spaces”, we don’t have safe-spaces nor do we feel a need to have them.

We are expected to be tolerant of those who enter our country illegally. Law-makers at the federal and state levels have even introduced legislation to protect their rights, some governors have even signed that legislation into law. Rights by the way they do not have. Those who are here legally and lawfully have Constitutional protections, those who are here illegally and unlawfully dont. The democrats even shutdown the government over the issue of illegal immigrants, dreamers and DACA. They are in this country illegally and display the flags of their native lands, this to is not supposed to offend us. Yet they are offended by our flags, we must hide our flag from their sight so as not to offend them. They burn our flag in protest, but what are they protesting? We have been lectured too by some in high government offices that America is a nation of immigrants. Well that may be, true to a point. The immigrants of times past assimilated into American society, learning to read and write English. Those days are long past, today immigrants are no longer encouraged to assimilate. As a matter of fact it appears that assimilation is discouraged, even frowned upon. Why do I have to press 1 to continue in English?

We must be tolerant of the Muslims coming to this country. Employers are being forced to bend over backwards to accommodate their religious beliefs and activities. At the same time employers are sued if they allow Christian prayers on company property. We must be tolerant of Islam while being intolerant of Christianity. If we get offended we are labeled as islamophobic.

We are expected to be tolerant of the what I call the gender confused. We are expected to let them use the bathroom of their choice, no matter how they are plumbed. We are not supposed to get offended if a man thinking he is a woman or vise versa, for that day to go into the bathroom with our wives and/or children and not complain. Wouldn’t want to offend them. I am not quite just sure if there is a phobia, ist or ism label for that one or not, don’t rightly care. There is at he same time no consideration of the woman who wants to use the women’s room absent the prying eyes of a man claiming to be a woman. The offended confused can and do sue because they have been “shortchanged”, not allowing them to express their preference. Yet, what legal avenue does the one being forced to submit to the bathroom choice policy? Do that with mine and I will do more than just offend you.

As a side note, to those businesses that have adopted the policy of using which ever bathroom you want my shadow will never cross your threshold. Much the same for those businesses that post a no firearms sign.

For most the rest of this post I will be using visual aids found on the internet.

As a matter of fact we are expected to be tolerant of everyone and everything but ourselves. We are expected to deny our culture and heritage. To borrow a line from a book I read, We are expected to sit atop the stool of everlasting repentance, apologizing for our culture and heritage. Well, this ol’ boy aint sitting atop no stool, I aint got nothing to apologize for. I certainly aint gonna apologize for being a Southron. I certainly aint gonna apologize for being the descendant of a Confederate soldier. I will also not apologize for being descended from those brave men who first fought for our Independence from the British. I am a Floridian, and no apology there either. I am an un-reconstructed Southron, and again no apology. If you are sitting atop that stool kindly get the hell down. Take a stand. Make a stand. Be proud of your culture and heritage.

The social justice warriors are demanding that the symbols of the South must be torn down. They seem to be offended by our culture and our heritage. The Flags of the Confederacy, the Statues and the Monuments are all offensive to them they claim that they are the symbols of slavery and white supremacy. Hogwash, they are no such thing. To borrow a line from another book I read, These people suffer from Confederaphobia, Confederaphobia an American epidemic.

So what are we to do? Well that is entirely up to you, but time is short, do something. I have few suggestions.

Quit apologizing and get down from the stool. This should be easy. Did or do you own slaves? No, then quit apologizing for slavery and quit apologizing for those who did. See how easy that is.

Educate yourself on your culture and heritage. Realize that you have been lied to since grade school and seek the truth. The soldiers of the Confederacy were noble men who believed in their cause. It was not a lost cause or a fool’s errand.
If you are in denial and find yourselves constantly apologizing for being a Southron, it is you who are on a fool’s errand.

Educate your children and grandchildren. They are being taught a lie, it is your responsibility to teach them the truth.
It is our descendants who must carry on. At this moment the preservation of the Southron heritage and culture seems pretty bleak. This must be turned around.

One would think that we are living in George Orwell’s book 1984. The Ministry of Truth had the power to say what the truth was and change the truth a the drop of a hat. There was no truth in that ministry, much the same as the education system teaches everything but the truth, while calling what they teach the truth. The former truth was dumped down the memory hole and the new truth
became the truth, the truth that had always been. 2+2=4 right? But it equals exactly what they say it does. Remember the impeachment hearings of a few years back. It depends on what your definition of is, is.

When a Confederate symbol taken down put two, three or more up in its place. Show your pride. In fact you could put up a Christian flag for good measure. Yes you can be a Southron and a Christian at the same time. My ancestors were. Don’t believe the lie that the Confederacy was not a Christian country and a Christian people.

Educate others. Spread the word. Spread the truth. Join an organization that supports and promotes the South, Southron Culture and Southron Heritage. If you join an organization participate to the level you can. Don’t be browbeaten into being at every event across the land, or chastised for not being at some place others think or thought you should have been at. Most of us have limited resources and have jobs to support our families. If you cant find one start one, even a book club.

Forget about the whole “coexist” ideology. You can not now and never will be able to coexist with those who only want you to be destroyed. You may be perfectly capable of being a good neighbor with people who are different with you, but they will never be good neighbors to you. Coexistence is a fool’s errand. It was Gen. William T. Sherman who once said “The problem with the South is that it has to many Southerners”. Fully one-quarter of the male population of the South were either killed or maimed during your civil war. Towns, cities and the Southern people were ravaged and savaged. Well Billy Boy, both my Great-Great Grandfathers survived and here I am.

Make no mistake about it what is going now with the symbols, statues and monuments of the Confederacy is no more than another period of Reconstruction, reconstruction 2.0, if you will. The South may have lost its bid for independence, the South did not lose its identity. There is another thing, the socialist social justice warriors will not stop with eradicating the last vestiges of the Confederacy. While they “chomp” away at the symbols Confederacy, they are “nibbling” away at much more.

Hide and watch. It will not stop with eradicating the Confederacy, they are already moving towards other targets. Think the plaques at the Church attended by George Washington. Much the same as the, at the time civil unions of same-sex couples. Civil unions was not the goal, it was however a “launching pad” towards their ultimate goal. Their goal was same-sex marriage. Same-sex marriage is with us today, not by legislation, but by a ruling, a decree if you will. Not by the president, but by the courts, the Supreme Court. The majority opinion of 9 people in black robes decided that the rest of the country had to succumb to and accept same-sex marriage as the law of the land. Make no mistake their goal is the complete and total eradication of this Republic. Which brings this question, How do you eat an elephant? One bit at a time. Eradication of all things Confederate is just the “launching pad”.

There was a futuristic fiction movie some years ago, the title was Fahrenheit 451. It was a movie about firemen, they did not exactly fight fires, they instead would set things afire, books to be specific. There were another group of people in the movie. They spent their time talking, not just talking but reciting books that they had read and memorized. As they aged they began reciting to the young, the young were taught to memorize a book that they had never seen, memorizing the spoken word. If the terror were to ever end the surviving generations would then be able to reproduce, print the books that had been lost. They were saving literature and history. If not for this effort all history would have been lost. I encourage you to watch the movie, before it too is lost.

Sherman said what he said in his time. I say what I say in my time. The problem with the South is that has too many “carpetbaggers” and “scalawags”.

Some do, some dont

Some get it, some dont and probably never will.

The latest mass killing(murdering)occurred in a Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. This was not the only shooting(murdering)that has occurred in a Christian House of Worship. Before the one in Texas there was one in Tennessee. Before the one in Tennessee there was one in South Carolina.

The one in Tennessee and the one in Texas have one thing in common. A concerned citizen brought the carnage to a halt. If I recall correctly the murdering at the Antioch Baptist Church was stopped by an Usher who wrestled the attacker to the ground. Again if I recall correctly the attacker(murderous savage)was shot in the leg. The murdering at the First Baptist Church was also brought to a halt by a concerned citizen. In this attack the concerned citizen exchanged fire with the attacker, as reported the attacker(again a murderous savage)was shot during the exchange. In the one in South Carolina the attacker(and again a murderous savage)was able to flee the scene, only to be captured a short time later. The murderous savage in Texas was not only shot, but when he attempted to flee was subsequently chased down by two townsfolk, including the one who had exchanged fire with and wounded the murderous savage.

This needs to be said and understood by all. In each of these instances the murderous savage knew he would face little if any resistance. They basically had the upper hand, the advantage if you will. They are brave when they have the advantage, not so much when they encounter resistance. None of the three murderous savages had planned on any meeting any real resistance.

I would like to point this out about society in this Republic today. The concerned citizen in Texas who grabbed his rifle and brought the savagery to an end is more the exception than the rule. Most in our society would have chosen not to get involved, if they did get involved it would have only been to the extent of grabbing their cellphone and making a video. This man chose to get involved, he grabbed his rifle(not a cellphone)and placing himself in great danger engaged the threat. He placed himself in great peril to defend the defenseless. To me that is the definition of a true Hero. This man exemplifies the meaning of the American Spirit, heroic and decisive action in the face of great peril. The other man, the driver of the truck also chose to get involved. This man also demonstrated great courage during the chase, determined to not let the murderous savage escape. Both of these men are exemplary and courageous in deed and character.

Now lets move on to those who dont get it and probably never will. This would be the gun control crowd, actually it should be called the “cult of gun control”. I call it a cult because to them it is a religion, but it is a cult. It is a false religion based on a false premise. It is based on the premise that what they call “gun crime” can be eliminated by placing further restrictions on law-abiding citizens. Passing laws and even more laws have no effect on those that choose to ignore or break the laws. If the rights of the citizens are infringed the only effect that would have would to be to provide even more victims of those who use a gun to commit a crime. I call the gun control a cult for another reason, they have Profits, false Profits. They follow a Profit who calls for more gun control while at the same time they are surrounded by armed security. They have guns to protect them while they seek to disarm others. The false “religion” of gun control headed by a false Profit, that makes it a cult.

Now we have a republican Senator from Texas siding with and reaching out to the democrats on gun control. This is a democrat windfall. It sounds as simple as writing legislation to enforce and strengthen laws on the books, but it is not that simple. It will not stop with legislation to fix existing legislation, it will lead to “comprehensive reform”. Currently the Air Force is being blamed for the failure on its part in reporting the conviction of the murderous savage in Texas. To me it is just another example of the government being above the law. When the government makes a mistake they just say “oops”. What happens to the rest of us if we make a similar mistake?

Now let’s go to those that get it. Once again a bad guy with a gun was stopped by a good guy with a gun. We have a sheriff here in Florida that has come out to say, “if you have a permit and a gun take your gun with you”. He gets it and so should you. I agree with what he has said.

You are your own “first line of defense”. Everyone who owns a gun should be proficient, range time and holster drills. I would like to say this, carrying a firearm comes with great responsibility. If you are not willing to accept that responsibility them for God’s sake do not carry. Let me point this out, the gun in your holster is not a “good luck charm”. Just because you have a concealed weapon and a permit is no guarantee that nothing bad will ever happen. Be proficient. If you want to carry a “good luck charm” get a rabbit’s foot, but then ask yourself what happen to the rest of the rabbit?

Now this is going to bring us to the subject of guns in Church. This is a subject that most congregations are unwilling to discuss. But it must be discussed. Before beginning with this I would like to point out this. We should be walking about this Republic everyday without a care in the world. We should be safe in our schools, offices, parks and everywhere we go, but things are different now.

There are many places that one would believe they were absolutely safe, but for today I will address only two. We should feel absolute safety in these two places, the sanctuary of the womb and the Sanctuary of the Church. Taking a little side road for just a minute. Let me go back to the “cult of gun control” for just a minute. The same people who favor gun control are the same people who favor abortion on demand. I find this to be more than ironic, they are perfectly willing to support abortion, which is not a Constitutional Right but oppose the private ownership of guns which is a Constitutional Right. Since 1973 it has been estimated that over 53 million babies have been murdered in the mother’s womb. The pro-choice “abortion cult” has their false Profits, the same as the “gun control cult”. The ones who push abortion have children and grand children. Those that support abortion only do so because their mothers chose life.

Now let’s go back to guns in the Church. This is going to cause angst in some Churches. I am of the opinion that every Church in this Republic have some sort of Church Protection Plan. I am also of the opinion that every male in the congregation carry his own personal firearm, that is, if he is trained, proficient and holds a permit if required and most importantly will to take on that responsibility. Some Pastors are going to be against guns in the Church. Some of the Congregation like is going to be opposed to guns in the Church. But I remind you of this you are your own and best first line of defense. As I have said before when a wolf comes it is best to have some wolf repellant.

There are those who claim that a handgun is not match for a rifle. Well that is true, but something is better than nothing. For a handgun to be effective against a rifle, the distance must be closed, either by the defender or the murderous savage. I am not for turning every Church in this Republic into a bristling fortress, but Churches like all “soft” targets must be “hardened”. We want people to come to Church and come to Jesus. We could lock our doors, but locks only keep honest people honest.

Above when I said “This man exemplifies the meaning of the American Spirit heroic and decisive”, that was and is true but it exemplified more than just the American Spirit. He exemplified the Christian Spirit. Willing to lay down his life for a friend. The Christian American Spirit.

Fresh out of options

The same opening in the last post applies to this post. This is not an attempt by me to delve into the world of conspiracy theories, there are others who do that, I will leave that to them. This post like the last is intended to cause people to think. And as in the last post LLSP applies to the democrats and those hiding in the GOP.

The Electoral College vote yesterday made it official, Donald J. Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States on January 20th 2017 at noon. One would think that it is finally settled and finally over. The LLSP have failed in every attempt to prevent yesterday from happening. They failed in their attempt to defeat Mr. trump in the primaries. They failed again at the GOP convention. They failed to defeat Mr. Trump in the presidential election. They failed again with the ridiculous re-count efforts. And finally they failed at the Electoral College. Save for a few “turncoats” it worked just as the Founders and Framers intended.

One would think that the LLSP were fresh out of options. That may not be the case. This is not the time for us, the sensible, in America to think that this is over. We must stay on our guard. History is a great teacher, we only have to look back. There are many historical facts that illustrate the point I am trying to make.

For the purposes of this post I would like to use Western Europe during World War 2. Hitler, the Nazis and the German military had control of most if not all of Europe by the spring of 1944. Europe was an occupied land. The German High Command had always known that there would one day be an invasion of Europe in an attempt to liberate the conquered nations. This I feel was one of the compelling reasons Hitler wanted to conquer the British Isles. Think about this for a moment. If the British Isles had fallen to the Germans, they could not have been used as the “jumping off point” for the D-Day invasion. Where would a suitable “jumping off point” be other than the British Isles? The British Isles did not fall and became the “jumping off point” for D-Day. Divine intervention? Maybe.

Think of the U. S. as an occupied land for a moment. A land occupied not by a foreign military, but by the political ruling class(LLSP), their henchmen and handlers. They too, have always known that there was the possibility of a liberation of this land. An invasion of Patriots, so to speak.

With the failure of the German military to subdue the British Isles, the Germans began building “Fortress Europe”. The coast line of Western Europe was bristling with guns from Spain to Norway, guns to repel the invasion. The German High Command also was faced with the problem of trying to best guess where an invasion would occur, and place the reserve forces nearest that point. The points they chose was Calais and Cherbourg.

The LSSP, their henchmen and handlers need not plan to repel an invasion from the sea, the Patriots were and are already ashore. They did not have to build a “Fortress America” they only had to divide America and Her Citizens into segments. The LLSP have only basic tactics they employ, Division and Character Assassination. Once a population is divided it is easy to assassinate their character. The LSSP have been dividing the population for years. They divide the population based on skin color, sex, money or the lack of it, religion or the lack of it, ethnicity and so on. Then they pit one group against another or the others which ever works best for them. Then the name-calling begins racist, sexist, homophobe and so on. If anyone still stands his or her ground their character is assassinated with even more name-calling and even allegations of bad behavior, even is those allegations have no merit. They have divided America the same way they have divided the population. America is divided into colors Red, Blue and Purple. The states fight the other states and the federal government fights the states.

The Allied invasion of Europe occurred on June 6th 1944 at Normandy. The German High Command could not believe what they were seeing. They even went into denial. The invasion happening before their eyes was occurring at the wrong time and in the wrong place. Many thought that the invasion was only a trick(deception), not real, and the real invasion would occur where and when they thought it always would. It was the only way. They never saw it coming, even though it was right before their eyes.

The LLSP find themselves in the same predicament. As stated above, the LLSP and their henchmen and handlers have long suspected that the Patriots would rise up and take back this Republic. They had always believed that the Patriots would rise up with Arms in an attempt to throw-off the government, much the same as the Founders and Framers had done so long ago. They guessed wrong, the Patriots did rise up and begin the process of taking back the Republic, but it was done with the ballot box not with the cartridge box. They never saw it coming, we used what the Founders and Framers had left for us. They had been long trying to disarm the population, through laws, rules and regulations and yes even trickery. Falling short of their goal of disarming the population, they resorted to building “Fortress Government” to counter the Patriots. Let’s not forget the massive amount of weapons and ammunition the federal government had been acquiring and stockpiling. Bristling with guns. Does that sound familiar? Failing in one goal and then building a Fortress. A Fortress to stave off what you fear most. Now the LLSP their henchmen and handlers have another problem. The “Fortress Government” that they built is about to fall into the hands of those it was to be used against, if the need arose. Divine intervention? Maybe.

Let’s not forget what happens when you think you have won when the enemy is still quite capable of fighting. Not just fighting but launching an offensive. The Battle of the Bulge as it is known started in mid-December 1944 and lasted till mid-January 1945.

The election of Donald J. Trump as 45th President of the U.S. was just the first step, much like the landing at Normandy. There is still a long way to go to achieve final victory. The LLSP for now appears beaten, but we must be wary. There is still time for them to do what they do best, muck everything up. The next “hurdle” is January 20th, it is akin to breaking out of Normandy and going “inland”. From Neptune to Overlord.

What If?

I don’t normally do this, but I figure what the heck. This is not an attempt on my part to enter the realm of conspiracy theories, I will leave that to others. It is just something to think on.

In the last post I ended with the question, How far are they willing to go. Also in the last post I kept making references to the Liberal Leftist Socialist Progressives(LLSP). The LLSP also includes those masquerading as Conservatives in the republican party.

I probably should have asked, What is their intention. I did not because their intention is heinous and unbelievable. Their unbelievable intention will be revealed at the end of this post.

First, the lead in.

Every couple of years America is embroiled in a Geo-Political war, not a shooting war but a war of politics. It is akin to the Feudal wars that waged across Europe long ago. The feuding political parties fight for control of America. There is even a map of feudal America, it is even colorized, blue for one political party and red for the other. This feudal war relegates the citizens of this Republic to little more than serfs. Serfs that are passed to the victor of the political wars. The victorious party only sees the citizens as little more than obedient servants, servants to the party.

There is even more to this political war we must endure so often. This feud is based on of all things demographics. This is how the colorized map comes into play. There are three classifications in the demographics. There are the consistently blue states, as well as consistently red states, the other are called swing states. The swing states are purple in color on the map. It is the purple sates that garner so much attention from the feuding parties. Little attention is paid to the consistent states. If you don’t believe that, ask yourself how many times your states are normally visited in a national campaign. In the state elections how many times is your county visited by candidates? Are you consistently blue or red, or are you purple? You can bet little attention is paid to blue or red counties. Demographics also let the party candidate know what to say and to who. There are certain things he or she can only say in blue areas. The same goes for the red areas. Never say red in blue. Never say blue in red. The purple areas are where most candidates show their true “colors”, they are purple, they say what the demographics say they should say. This had been going on for far too long.

This past election changed everything. There was a new “combatant”, the citizens finally got a chance to get in the fight. The feuding political parties got defeated on the field of honor. This is and was just the beginning. Donald J. Trump was the GOP nominee not because of the GOP, but in spite of the GOP. He beat all of the political elite to become the nominee, in spite of all the tricks they pulled, or was it because of the trickery. Now Donald J. Trump is the President-elect, not because of the political system, but in spite of it. He beat the DNC and the media in spite of all of the trickery, or again, was it because of it.

I like to refer to President-elect Trump as the Citizen President. In the past America had Citizen Soldiers now we have a Citizen President. The Minute Men come to mind, the ones who would be ready in a minute, to come to the aid and defense of their country. They were ready to answer the call. President-elect Trump answered the call, he came because his country needed him. President-elect Trump may have arrived just in time to save this Republic. One thing for sure this Republic has at long last been wrested from the claws of the political ruling class. Make America Great Again may be contagious, it could spread to the State, County and City levels. This could be what has the LLSP in such a tizzy.

Now, the unbelievable part.

I am sure that everyone has heard of crimes of passion and crimes of jealousy. For now let’s stick with crimes of jealousy. How many times has one spouse tried to leave the other for another. In a fit of jealous rage, the one being left murders the one leaving. The logic, If I can’t have you then nobody will. The right thing to do would be to let the one go who wanted to leave. Some do the right thing. Sadly, most choose to do the wrong thing, they murder the one they claim to have loved. Nobody wins, everybody looses when one acts out of a fit of jealous rage.

I have been doing some studying up on wars, shooting wars, civil wars. A goodly portion of them began because of politics. The Spanish Civil War was not an exception. I choose to bring up that civil war because of the term, Fifth Column. There were Four Columns outside of Madrid, but a general claimed to have a Fifth Column inside the city. What could not be solved through the political process was solved at the muzzle of a rifle and the point of a bayonet.

There was an old adage that went something like “If America were to ever be destroyed it would not be from the outside, it instead would be from within”. Most would agree that America has many adversaries on the outside. Aside from the occasional militant groups in history, there has never been what one could refer to as a Fifth Column. That may well be changing.

Let’s go back to the hacking for just a minute. The most recent accused of such activity is Russia. Others that have been accused of hacking are North Korea, Iran and China. Note the number, there are Four. All four would have something to gain by the demise of America. None alone are capable on their own of causing the demise of America. But what if the four of them joined forces? They would still be on the outside. There would be little if any help inside for them certainly nothing that would amount to a Fifth Column. The political ruling class, their henchmen and certainly their controllers have no intention of handing all of this over. Not in its present state anyway.

Let’s go back to the fit of jealous rage “If I can’t have you then nobody will”. The political ruling class, their henchmen and controllers have long suspected that the citizens of this Republic might someday awaken and see what was happening. Some of us have been awake for a long time, others are waking up. They have a plan to deal with an awakening population, they have always had a plan.

They always knew there was no Fifth Column available in this Republic. Their only hope was to import one. It began with the southern border, open the border to any and all. They did not care who they were loyal to. Look at the demonstrations, better known as riots, of recent. Which flag did they carry and which flag did they burn. You can bet that they are not loyal to this Republic. The awakening of the country began before they could bring in enough. What were they to do?

Start wars in the Middle-East, thus creating a refugee crisis. How many refugees have arrived in this Republic? Where do their loyalties lie?

We used the process laid out by the Founding Fathers to wrest this Republic from the hands of Tyrants and Despots. Yet these same Tyrants and Despots apparently seem to take on the role of the jealous spouse. By bringing in a Fifth Column you are choosing to murder what you have claimed to love.

See I told you it was unbelievable. Or is it?

uncle-sam-prayer-for-americaEnough already. The levels of incompetence and ignorance have reached a new all time height. I mean even modern jets have a maximum ceiling(altitude) and even a maximum airspeed where they can still function safely. Apparently there are no such restrictions on incompetence or ignorance, there are no limits on how high it can go or on how fast it can spew forth.

A prime example of this is the political reaction to the recent terrorist attack in Orlando. The political solution is apparently to further restrict the rights of law-abiding American citizens. Everybody at the club were law-abiding citizens, they were out for an evening of entertainment and merry-making. As I recall firearms are not allowed in the part of a club serving alcoholic beverages, so consequently the lawful were disarmed, obeying the law. The only one who broke the law was the terrorist who entered the club with firearms. And then he did what terrorists do, he starting killing unarmed citizens(civilians). He chose a “soft target” because he wanted to go about his terroristic intentions unimpeded by the possibility of encountering anyone inside the club that may have been armed. You will note that this like almost all large-scale terrorist attacks the intended victims would have no way to effectively defend themselves. The laws on the books worked just fine, problem is the terrorist had no intention of following the law. It will be the same the next time it happens, wherever it happens, the same as in California. The law-abiding citizens obeyed the law, the terrorists did not nor will they, ever.

Immediately the gun control crowd jumped up on their “soap-box” claiming that more gun control was needed to prevent such acts. They actually blamed the murder and mayhem on the gun. So they cries went out for somebody to do something, the gun violence must be stopped. I do need someone to explain to me how a gun, an inanimate object can become violent all by itself. It again just like every other crime or terrorist act took the intentional effort by a human being to carry out the act. It was not the gun that is or became violent enough to load magazines itself and pull back the charging handle and the aim itself at people and then commence firing and change magazines as the ammo became depleted. No all those actions required a human. I would even be bold enough to claim that if a rifle were to be loaded with a full magazine, the charging handle pulled back and released to send a live round of ammunition into the chamber and the safety not engaged(left on fire) and then placed in a corner the loaded rifle would stand right there until the end of time and never turn violent. The only thing left to do was to pull the trigger and it would go bang, it would wait right where it was left waiting for a human. Magazines can not load themselves, charging handles can not pull themselves to the rear and triggers can not depress them selves, all those steps require human action, willful and intention human actions.

What needs to happen is that the right to self-defense of the citizens of this country needs to be unimpeded. But the gun control crowd and the liberal socialists in government(democrat, republican and independent)will demand and do just the opposite. It is not the law-abiding citizens that are the problem in this country nor is it the availability of firearms. The problem is the criminal element and now terrorists in this country. We do not need gun control, what we do need is criminal control and terrorist control. Criminals can be controlled by the laws already on the books, but only if the laws are enforced. Terrorists can be controlled by not letting them in this country, in other words immigration and visa control. Failing to control immigration and visas into this country is akin to letting people into your house that should never have been allowed on your lawn, then acting surprised when they destroy or attempt to destroy you and yours.

One interesting tidbit was the congress critter from down Orlando way spewing this garbage, people should not be allowed weapons that fire seven hundred a minute. That idiot should do the math on his foolish statement. 700 rounds per minute would equate to 11.6 round per second, that is one fast semi-automatic rifle no to mention the quickness of changing magazines, and the weight of that much ammunition. Are the good people from his district really contemplating sending him back to congress? Lord help us. After hearing what that man had to say I had to consult Webster’s for a possible word and definition that would help describe the level of incompetence and ignorance of some of the distinguished members of government, I came up with the following;
Nit-wits, Half-wits, Dim-wit and Witless, they pretty much all mean the same thing. A stupid or foolish person. The I looked for words to describe the statements they make and possible laws they may attempt to introduce in the aftermath of the Orlando terrorist attack. I came up with the following; Half-baked, not completely thought out.
1959792_716153281770894_2116533504_n

I would like to point this out in case any of the gun control crowd missed it. When the call for help went out it was answered by people with guns, a lot of people with a lot of guns. If you are so against guns why did you call for and expect people carrying guns to show up? If the terrorist wanted to cause such carnage and he did not have a gun or two he would have chosen a different method, the result would have been the same many innocent would have died. The same can not be said if someone, anyone or everyone in the club would have had a least the same capability as the terrorist. I thought you liberals were all about equality and creating a level playing field. You gave one an advantage over many others. Why do you promote policies that go against one of your stronger beliefs? All things being equal, I mean. Seems to me you actually promote inequality.

Then I have to say that the Dim-wits, Nit-wits and Half-wits can only be in government if people of the same caliber continually elect and re-elect them. The only way we have half-baked ideas for laws is that people elect people who hatch half-baked laws. You reap what you sow. You elect stupid you get stupid.

Then there is this, incompetence and ignorance runs rampant through society. Read on Free Republic today where the Southern Baptist Convention(SBC)has banned the display of the Confederate Flag in SBC churches. So let me address this real quick while on the subject of Dim-wits, Nit-wits, half-wits, Witless and Half baked. The Southern Baptist Church I attend does not display the Confederate Flag on the grounds or in the Sanctuary, there are however on display in the Sanctuary the Christian Flag and the U.S. Flags. Were you referring to the Stars and Bars(the Flag of The Confederacy, The Confederate States of America) or the Battle Flag of the Army of Northern Virginia? Just asking. Since when did political correctness enter the Sanctuary? If you are by decree banning the flag that may or may not be displayed in a Southern Baptist Church because someone may be offended, when will you deny Christianity because someone may be offended?

How on earth did America reach this low point?

Perhaps a better question would be, How low will America sink? I’m not even talking about the presidential primaries or the conventions, though that seems to be the subject of the times. what I am talking about is America in general and the American citizens in particular.

Is it the state(condition) of America dragging down the citizens or is it the state(condition) of the citizens dragging America down? The answer to this question is that one feeds off of the other in what appears to be a never-ending cycle.

The current state(condition)of America.
If America were a person in the Emergency Room what level of care would be needed? America is by no means in a condition of being placed on Life Support, but the Vital Signs are not good and treatment is required to prevent a further deterioration in Vital Signs. Much like a person America could only end up in the Emergency Room for Illness or Injury or both. Triage would reveal the reason and course of treatment. The triage would reveal that there is both an Illness and an Injury that has caused the continued decay and decline in America. But there is a Cure.

The decline of America and the American citizens began with the birth or more aptly the creation of Generation E. The American government created the E Generation, and the created Generation E has given birth to millions who are a part of Generation E. To answer the question, What is Generation E? Generation E is the Entitlement Generation, the Generation that believes that they are Entitled to anything and everything. Not only are the good and decent citizens forced to contend with and support the Entitlement Generation, we are forced to contend with Generation O and Generation D. In case you are wondering, Generation O is the Offended(by any and everything)Generation, and Generation D is the Dependent(on government for any and everything)Generation.

In the not to distant past there was one constant that kept America safe and strong and that was the citizens. When Japan attacked at Pearl Harbor it was done so to deal a death-blow to the U.S Military and especially the U.S. Navy in the Pacific. Japan did not attack or attempt an invasion on America for one simple reason, an outright invasion of America would have come at an extremely high price and the price was unaffordable to Japan. Had Japan mounted an outright invasion of America, Japan would have faced a heavily armed population. Not only were the citizens armed but they were a hardy and hardened lot. It was famously said by one Japanese “There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass”. The Japanese were ambitious not crazy. It is my opinion that no country on earth would attack America for the very same reason.

In 1941 there were many veterans of WW 1 still among the citizenry and still relatively young and able-bodied hardened by war and further hardened by the Great Depression. Many of the population still lived in rural areas on farms and ranches. They too were hardened by the Great Depression. The people in the rural areas had to make do with what they had and make the best of it. These people had skills, farming skills, raising their own food and hunting skills(actually going into the woods and mountains and taking game)to feed their families. If things were needed that they could not afford they made up for the lack of cash by trading and bartering. They made do without government handouts. They endured the hardships and pressed on. That was then.

This is now. Look around the general public today, you will see many(to many)that are lazy and fat. You see many that will not do for themselves, they expect and even demand that the government do and provide for them. These are the same ones that do nothing to better themselves. These are the ones that feel that they are entitled to something, everything and anything even though they have never earned it. They feel Entitled and are Offended if someone insist that they provide for themselves and have become Dependent on government. They have been Conditioned to believe that the government provides Free Services(Welfare), the government does provide Welfare, but it is not Free, for the government to Give to one it must first be Taken from another. Does anyone really believe that these people know what a true hardship is? They will stand in line for hours upon hours or even camp-out in front of a store just to be the first or among the first to buy the latest electronic gadget or game or to see a movie. But they will not stand in line to do their civic duty and vote. If they do vote and have to wait in line they claim that is not fair or places an undue hardship on them and demand that the government do something. They readily show photo ID to by beer and liquor but cry foul if they must show ID to vote. The only hardship these people know is if they can not acquire the latest electronic gadget or if there reality show gets cancelled. This is the Illness.

The preceding paragraph was not written for every citizen, if it does not apply to you then you will recognize that fact. At the same time those that it does apply to will not recognize that it was written for and about them. Would anybody really expect these people to come to the defense of this country? Would they be willing to lay down their gadgets and pick up a rifle and get behind a blade of grass? I submit that they would not. They would rather submit to an enemy than Offend the same enemy.

Sadly there are not any veterans of WW1 among us now they have all since passed. However, we are fortunate to still have among us some veterans of WW 2, Korea and Viet Nam these too are hardy and hardened men and women. But sadly they are growing old and they too will pass from us in the not to distant future. Additionally we still have among us the veterans of Desert Storm, of which I am one and we too are aging and undoubtedly will also pass from existence. As will the ones who follow.

One undeniable fact is that the Entitled, Offended and Dependent Generations exist in every generation from the Depression era to the present.

Governments role in the decline of America. Where should I start?
Should I start with Tariffs? Tariffs are no more than a tax. A tax placed on goods imported that is paid wholly by the consumer. The tax is not paid by the overseas manufacturer. The tax is not paid by the exporting country. The tax is paid by the consumer in the importing nation to the government of the importing country.
Should I start with Subsidies? Subsidies are no more than corporate welfare. They are used to prop up businesses or industries that the government says provides a benefit. The only one that benefits is the business or industry. Subsidies are paid for with tax dollars. The consumer pays the subsidy(if they pay taxes)and still pays for the product. Buying one thing twice.
Should I start with the other subsidy, Welfare? Yes welfare is a subsidy. The tax payers are forced to subsidize the lifestyles of others that will not or choose not to finance their lifestyles for themselves. There are many welfare cases that are generational. A reward for bad behavior and bad decisions.
Should I start with Income Taxes? Income taxes are at this point a penalty for producing. Welfare is a reward for not producing.
Should I start with the National Debt? Nearing 20 trillion dollars in debt, money spent buying votes and friends. Please explain to me how everything that was taken in was spent or wasted and why you had to borrow an additional 20 trillion dollars to continue spending or wasting.
The list goes on and on. This is the Injury.

Taxes at the outset were intended for the Welfare(Well-Being)of the Nation. They were intended to fund the needful functions of Government, they were not intended to subsidize the less fortunate and especially not the lazy and slothful. There was warning from long-ago that went something like this; The Republic is in danger of failure when the populace discovers they can and then begin voting themselves money from the national treasury. They discovered it, they do it and the Republic is in great peril.

If you need proof that America is in decline you need to look no further that this. Some men that claim to feel like a woman demand to use facilities for women. The state says no, men use men’s rooms and women use women’s rooms. Then some federal government knucklehead says that might be discrimination based on sex. Some men feel Entitled to use women’s rooms based on how they feel and are Offended that they can’t and are Dependent on government to force the women to comply and allow men in the women’s rooms. College students that seek counseling because they were traumatized by someone writing in chalk “Trump” on a sidewalk.

There is another aspect to “Making America Great Again”, other than bringing back jobs and money from overseas, though that would be nice. What is needed to make America great again is for the American citizens to make themselves great again. The citizens need a revival of the American Spirit. American citizens need to become hardy and hardened. American citizens need to return to the practice of Self-Reliance and become Self-Dependent. Rely and Depend on ones own self. Stop being lazy and slothful. Learn to live with-in one’s own means. Learn to make do. Become the one behind the blade of grass. This is the cure so to speak.

America is great, always has been, always will be. The government and some of the citizens are dragging her down. Every time I hear a political clown claiming that he or she will shrink the “size and scope” of government I just bust out laughing. No politician has any intention of shrinking the federal government, I especially get a kick out of one claiming to abolish the IRS. Just how does one abolish a federal government agency? No politician will shrink the federal government in size or scope. If the federal government were to be shrunk, that would in theory return power to either the state or to the people. Do you really think the federal government would empower the states much less the people? Government at all levels is about power and control. What we the people should be concerned with is, when will the government gain absolute power and total control? If and when government gains absolute power and total control over the people it will be because the citizens allowed it to happen.

All of the Kings, Tyrants and Dictators of the world have always feared one thing and one thing only, and that is a nation of Free People. America was founded as a Free Nation(at that time Free and Independent States)inhabited by a Free People Governed by Consent. It is my opinion, If the nation continues down the current path the nation will no longer be a Free Nation inhabited by a Free People governed by Consent, it will become a Nation Ruled by Force with no free inhabitants.

So I now ask what is it that keeps our enemies from our shores? I can assure you that it is not the Entitled, Offended or Dependent Generations. The answer simply put is that there are still enough Hardy and Hardened Americans to make the cost to high to bear. The downside to this is that time and laziness has taken a terrible toll on the Hardy and Hardened.

To answer the Question, How low will America sink? To the very bottom if the people do not wake up and start acting like the Americans and if the government does not start governing as the Founding Fathers envisioned. Both must happen. So which are you ? Part of the Illness? Part of the Injury? Are you willing to be part of the Cure.
