So you want to Secede

It seems that California wants to secede from California, making a New California separate from Old California. You want to remain in the union you just want to secede for coastal California. West Virginia was mentioned in the article I read. You better check your history on how West Virginia came to be. Also you might just want to study up on the Constitution, especially the part that covers how new states are formed.

I also understand that you have drafted a Declaration of Independence. Declaring Independence and achieving it are two separate issues. I haven’t read your Declaration of Independence yet, will find it soon and give it a look. In the mean time I will give a guess or two and perhaps give you some ideas that will help. Allow me to put this in context for you.

Rural California is tired of seeing their tax dollars siphoned off to go to the big cities to fund their social justice programs. In other words your tax dollars are flowing away from you and you get little if anything in return. Your money flows towards the coast while your area receives little if any attention.

Well, all I can say is, Welcome to the freaking club. What you are experiencing now is the same thing that the South faced in the years prior to what you call the Civil War. Yep, the revenue from the South was flowing towards the North to fund the special interest groups and programs of that time. How much of your hard-earned money goes to fund the wacky liberal programs of the big cities? Get yourself some books that cover history, the real history of the years leading up to the South(South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Texas)seceding from the union. Pay special attention to the tariffs, especially the Morrill tariff. By the way, money still flows from the South bound for other destinations. You money is bound to fund programs for those who are in your state illegally. Why? They will vote for those who protect them, keeping those in power who abuse you so badly.

Rural California feels like they are underrepresented in their state government. The big cities have most of the representation. You think you are being governed without your consent. You think you are being taxed, heavily taxed, without your consent.

Again welcome to the freaking club. The South was always underrepresented. It was framed that way. Just who do you think came up with the 3/5 thing? It certainly was not the South. If the slaves were counted a whole people, instead of 5 being 3. The South would have had more representation in congress, possibly making all states equally represented. The north could not allow that, they wanted to be in control of the new government. Like the South you will never be represented, it was not meant to be.

You may want Independence, you may even prove that you are capable of governing yourselves. You may even find allies in the big cities, until they realize that when you leave so does the money that fund the social justice programs. The South had allies in the north that were willing to let them go in peace until they realized they would no longer be able to pilfer the South of its money. Your governor may say something akin to what Mr. Lincoln said when some suggest that you should go in peace. Let them go, Let them go, I may as well shutter the government.

You see they do not need your votes or even your loyalty. What they do need is your money. It is always about money. They will never let you go in peace or any other way, not as long as there is one dime left to squeeze out of you. The only escape for you is to escape California. Go to a state more to your liking.

You will notice above there are only 7 states listed as seceding, there were only 7 in the beginning. They declared their independence from the union. They then formed their own government and country, the Confederate States of America. 4 more states(Virginia, North Carolina, Arkansas and Tennessee)did secede later, the total became 11. Might want to check your history on this also, especially the part about why they voted to secede after voting to remain. Long story short, the North used force to preserve the union. The South was beaten on the Battlefield and is still a conquered and occupied nation. President Jefferson Davis was imprisoned for treason but was never tried. No one would take the case on behalf of the union. The reason, what they won on the battlefield they would have lost in a court of law.

The South paid a heavy price in its attempt to leave the union, and still pays today. There are some still to this day that claim that the South embarked on a fool’s errand. Seeking freedom and independence is not and never has been a fool’s errand. The South in the spirit of the Colonials sought Freedom, Liberty and the right to self-government, after all they were the direct descendants of the Colonials.

You have finally reached the point where you now realize that your state government is corrupt, well good for you. It took long enough. But then, the original Declaration of Independence does say, Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves. It does take time. On a side note the United Kingdom voted to exit the E.U., still has not happened. Time will tell on that one. Catalonia voted to secede from Spain, you saw how that worked out.

I really hate to ask this but, after all we are talking about California. Are you for the United Kingdom leaving the E.U.? Were you in support of Catalonia? Are you in support of Florida?

Well good luck to you. Maybe, just maybe some other states that are controlled by liberals will follow you.

My how history does repeat itself.

Dont forget to hoist the Bonnie Blue Flag.

Wars and rumours of wars. Part 1

This series of posts revolves around the liberal leftist socialist progressives and the wars they wage in and against this Republic.

First up is the war on religion, the more correct term would be the war on(against)Christianity. This war has been going on for quite some time and continues today.

They use the same old tired argument, separation of Church and State. They do love to bring up the Constitution when it fits in with their agenda. They are either totally ignorant or they count on the citizens to be totally ignorant, I suspect the latter. The only separation between Church and State is laid out in the first Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

Kicking God out of the Schools. 1962, it was the opinion of the court that prayer in school violated the establishment clause of the Constitution.

It continued and continues with kicking God out of public places, removing religious symbols. The latest is the demand the removal of the Peace Cross, a World War 1 memorial. It is the opinion of the court that the Cross is unconstitutional because it excessively entangles the government in religion because the Cross is the core symbol of Christianity.

So was this Republic founded on secularism or religion? Well lets take a look at some of the founding documents. You will find these words, terms and phrases. Found at greatamericandocuments.com, there are other sources as well.

The Declaration of Arms July 6, 1775. Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking up Arms.
…that the divine Author of our existence…
…But a reverence for our Creator…
…Divine favor towards us…that his Providence would not…
…before God and the world…
…which our beneficent Creator hath graciously…
The Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776
…Laws of Nature and Nature’s God…
…their Creator with…
…the Supreme Judge of the World…
…protection of Divine Providence…
Articles of Confederation November 15, 1777; ratified and in force March 1, 1781
…the Great Governor of the World…
Treaty of Paris signed in Paris September 3, 1783; ratified by Congress January 14, 1784; ratified by Great Britain April 9, 1784
In the name of the most holy and undivided Trinity
… the Divine Providence…
…by the grace of God…

Obviously this Republic had its founding on Religion and not secularism. God is mentioned in the above founding Documents. You will notice that the Constitution is not on the list. Intentional, I assure you.

Is this Republic founded on Christianity or secularism? Again we turn to the founding documents.

The Articles of Confederation
This is found in the Preamble.
…the fifteenth day of November in the Year of our Lord One Thousand Seven Hundred and Seventy seven…
This is found in the Signatories
… the ninth day of July in the year of our Lord one Thousand seven Hundred and Seventy-eight…
The Treaty of Paris
This is found in the signatories
…this third day of September in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-three.
The Constitution.
This is found in the signatories
Done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-seven.

Obviously this Republic was founded on Christianity and therefore is a Christian nation, or at least it is supposed to be. The date of the historical documents reflect the date A.D. The year of our Lord. With that being said this is a Christian nation not a nation of Christians, there is no national religion and congress has made no law creating one. The citizens of the several States that comprise this Republic are free to worship as they please. Now we wait to see if the Courts have a differing opinion.

Church and State are separate, or are they? Government(state)has gotten itself unnecessarily and exceedingly entangled in religion. How you ask? IRS tax codes. Why? I believe for the simple reason of getting politics out and away from the Church. When was the last time you heard a sermon on politics, not necessarily supporting or opposing a particular candidate, but what effects politics and therefore government has had on the Church and Christianity? If a Church were to have sermons based on politics would they lose their favor with the IRS(government)?

Government has in itself become a religion, of sorts. Government has replaced God in people’s lives, government has become god. There was a time when people Prayed to God in times of difficulty. Now people pray that government(god)will come to their aid in times of difficulty.

If this was still a Christian Republic, based on Christian principles I doubt very seriously that we would have abortion on demand? But then again you have to ask yourself, why is there such a demand for abortion? Is it because we have devolved into a secular nation?

The right to an abortion is based on a court opinion. The right of same-sex marriage is based on a court opinion. Much of what we are forced to contend with are based on court opinions.(More on opinion becoming law in a later post)

We in this Republic can stop thinking that politicians and jurists can save this Republic. They are the reasons this Republic is in such a mess. The only thing that can save this Republic is by returning to the religious foundations this Republic was founded under. The first thing to do is to remember that our rights come from God and are not bestowed on and to us by government(politicians and jurists).

Now my brothers and sisters in Christ let me say this I do not care the color of your skin, we as Christians must stop dividing ourselves and me must stop letting others divide us. We are easily conquered when we are divided.

Ephesians tells us what we must do. I prefer the King James Version, it is what I am most familiar with. I am not a Biblical Scholar, Theologian or any thing of the sort. Some call me a back-sliding Christian. I call my self a work in progress. To reinforce this I use a King James Study Bible, and seek help from my Personal Savior, Jesus Christ.

Ephesians Chapter 6
6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil
6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness.
6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
6:19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
6:20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

That is it my friends we must regain our Republic. To do this we must wake up and follow the Scriptures. If we do as instructed we win the war on(against)Christianity. If we remain asleep and continue to ignore the Scriptures we will lose this war to the powers of darkness. The task ahead of us is not as great as the power behind us.

The time has come for another Crusade, a Great Crusade to restore this Republic. A spiritual awakening, revival and redemption.

Oh, this just keeps getting….

Oh, this just keeps getting wackier by the day. Allegations of sexual misconduct are knocking on the door of Congress again. Another democrat, this time he is a member of the House. It has been said that Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. It would appear that some of our “esteemed” congress critters are absolutely corrupt.

I have said many times before, as I am sure others have said, government is all about power and control. It is a vicious circle more power equals more control, more control equals more power and on it goes.

When the seats of both chambers are occupied there is a grand total of 535 members of congress, they are our duly elected lawmakers. There does seem to be a problem with some of the duly elected congress critters, they seem not to possess the power to control themselves. Yet they have the power to control the rest of us, that seems kind of wacky.

To date the two that have been outed are democrats, one sitting Senator and one sitting Representative, one from each chamber. There have been no demands from other democrats of either chamber calling for either of these two to resign. There has been no call from the news media demanding that these two democrats resign. One liberal news outlet even suggested the senator was doing a mock grope.

It gets even wackier. Apparently there is a fund set aside to cover allegations from staff against congress critters. If congress “controls the purse strings” how did this hush fund become funded? What piece of legislation was this hush money tied to? How does it get replenished? Obviously it is tax-payer funded, I doubt that the congress creeps put a little in the “kitty” on each payday. This should piss off every tax-payer in this country. Tax-payer money being used to pay for congressional members misdeeds. What president signed the piece of legislation into law that keeps this “slush fund” funded into eternity? Is this discretionary or non-discretionary spending? It was the lack of discretion that caused it.

Hold on the wackiness is not over. There was a female representative who recently came out and talked about the ongoing problem of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct in congress, though she wont say names. She wants to reform the way the system works. She does not want to do away with the slush fund. Why not?

So what does congress plan to do to clean up its act? They will have mandatory classes on sexual harassment every two years.

Oh, my word

Now we have “toxic masculinity”, good grief really. The Florida Democratic Party chairman has resigned(no date as of yet)because he “feels” like he is “creepy”, making women nervous in his presence. Creating a hostile and creepy work environment. So another male has jumped onto the “sword”, a self-sacrifice. Perhaps a better term would be self-castration. One female had said that he has a lot of “boob stuff” in his office, including “breast shaped” stress balls on his desk.

Given the fact that he is, soon to be was, a party official and many people, both men and women, may visit his office he should have exercised more or at least some discretion. Tacky to say the least. An office with public access should reflect a great amount of professionalism, the same amount of professionalism that one should display and act on in their public life. It would appear that many in politics fail to understand they have no private life, so they must be on their best behavior at all times. Sadly many in politics, both male and female think the rules, ethics and morality, do not apply to them. They are above all of that.

How one decorates his or her own personal office is their own business. If one chooses to decorate his or her own personal office in a bawdy manner do remember where you are when you get the urge to take a selfie. Under no circumstances should one ever take a selfie in their drawers, or in a negligee.

The rest of this post deals with the absurdity of this so-called “toxic masculinity”.

First off masculinity is not toxic to men or society as a whole. This world would be in a terrible state if it were not for masculinity.
Masculinity is defined as; 1a Male 1b having qualities appropriate to or usually associated with a man.
Toxic is defined as; 1 containing or being poisonous material especially when capable of causing death or serious debilitation.
Therefore if masculinity was toxic there would be no males.

If the following offends you, you need to get a grip and grow up.

I very seriously doubt that any female has ever screamed “toxic masculinity” when a Man(capital M)stepped to her aid to defend her or her honor. I used a capital M because sadly there are some males in our society that are men(little m). But then I am Southern bred and Southern raised. Masculine but not toxic Good manners and all.

A male looking at a female is not visual rape. Women, most but not all, go to great lengths to look their best. The ones that do they wear clothes that compliment their figure. Us men call the clothes they wear, “Look at me clothes”. Do I look? Hell yea. Will I apologize for looking? Hell naw. Will I gouge my eyes out for looking to prevent me from doing it again or taking a second look? Again, Hell naw.

Before I forget, we have something in the South called GRITS. No not grits, but GRITS, an acronym for Girls Raised In The South. Some drive trucks, some drive what some of us call; Look at me trucks”. They have look at me clothes and look at me trucks, you should see them. Do we look? Hell yea. Will we apologize for looking? Hell naw. Will we gouge our eyes out for looking to prevent us from doing it again or taking a second look? Again, Hell naw.

Now I ask you girls this. If you get all gussied up and no man(big M or little m)looks would you be offended. Keep this up and soon no one will look, no matter how loud you or your attire screams “Look At Me”.

Masculinity is not toxic. Wussification is toxic. The wussification of males will cause the death of manhood, it is a debilitating condition is left untreated.

No Damsel in distress was ever, nor will she ever be, rescued by a wuss.

Is this where all of this leads?

Could it be this freaking simple? I am referring to the recent outing of males as sexual deviants.

The political landscape has long been dominated by males, as has the business and banking world. They still have a hard time coming to grips with the fact that their candidate for president lost. They most likely and probably never will come to grips with that fact. They have blamed everything under the sun for her loss but her. They have even claimed that she lost because males were not willing or ready to vote for a woman for president.

The allegations made against males and their sexual misconduct towards women is coming at a dizzying pace, seems like it will never stop. And it wont until all males are portrayed as sexual deviants. Sexual deviants who cant be trusted in the company of a woman. A sexual deviant who caint(can not and aint gonna)control himself. There have even been allegations leveled a males for attempting or attempting to have their way with underage(minor)boys and/or girls.

Are they trying to remake the political landscape of this Republic? Absolutely. But more than that they intend to remake the entire landscape of this Republic. The goal, perhaps is to remove all males from positions of power or authority based on the actions of a few.

Thus far the only allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior that has been exposed has been against males. To date and to the best of my recollection no females have been accused of such “indiscretions”. This is most likely due to the double standards when it comes to males and females.

Allow me to explain. When a male teacher is accused of having inappropriate relations with a student, whether the student female or male, there is outcry to lock him up and throw away the key. But if a female teacher is accused of having inappropriate relations with a student, especially if the student is a male, some say “where was she when I was in school”. So therefore I don’t expect any males will come out under the hashtag me too. Males exploits are put out for the world to see, while the females exploits remain virtually invisible.

There are some in both sexes, male and female, that will take advantage of their position or power for their own gains, whether it be for sexual(gratification)or financial(personal profit)reasons.

Now let me say this, there are males and females in society that are more than willing to be used, if their being used will get them to where they want to be. Those willing to be used are not victims.

By all means those that are victims should expose those that use others, whether male or female. Having power and/or authority don’t give anyone, male or female, the right to whatever or whoever they see or can get their hands on. Keep your hands to yourself and keep a civil tongue in your head.

In this post I have used the word “they” a lot. Now let me say who “they” are. They are the Social Justice Warriors from the Department of Fairness and Equality.

I have also used the words male and female. That is because that was the way we as mankind were created by God, man and woman.

This is what all of this boils down to, the Social Justice Warriors want a woman to be president. No matter the cost. No matter if she is qualified. No matter her morals or the apparent lack of her morals. I mean after all, women can be trusted, right? The only qualification she must possess is to not be a man and social justice would have prevailed, in their view.

I cant help but wonder if that woman were elected president would all of these allegations come about? Are the allegations a result of her loss? We will never know, because thankfully she was not elected. I suspect though that silence would have prevailed, if she had won the election.
