Is this the end..?

September 16, 2014

“Hey, Martin,” he called out across the room at a meeting I attended recently.

He walked closer so that no one would hear what he was about to say.

“What chance do you give our survival as a nation?” he asked.

“Not much,” I said, as I walked off. I did not want to engage in this type of conversation in a setting where eavesdropping ears were nearby. He followed me to an area off to the side of the room where he continued to press me on the issue.

“That’s a terribly morbid assessment there, Martin. I would have hoped that you would not take such a morbid point of view.”

“Morbid or not,” I said, “Those are the facts. Either we face the facts and do something drastic to save us from disintegration as a free nation, or we can go on pretending that this is only a passing phase, a part of a cycle that is to be expected, knowing that the pendulum will swing back in the other direction. The only problem is this time, the pendulum is not swinging back. This is not a passing phase in a cycle. Too many of our freedoms have been annihilated by this government, and too much of the Constitution has been shredded for this to be merely a passing phase.

“What has happened,” I continued, “is that we as a nation have crossed the threshold into a post-Constitutional era. Once that happens our freedoms and liberties and rights are either vulnerable or completely gone.

“Note the lesson of history,” I said. “Once freedoms are trampled upon and rendered inoperative by oppressive government, that government never gives those liberties back to the people. Never. The people are forced to take them back.”

The United States has already outlived all other great nations in history. As noted by the following quote that has been attributed to various and sundry political experts, “Great nations rise and fall in 200 year cycles.” We as Americans are already well beyond that limit.

And as incredibly pessimistic a statement such as the following may be, it is a terrible truth that must be faced — the upcoming election in November is not going to save us from our current fateful course. Too many Americans have thrown in with peddlers of taxpayer funded entitlements that they will continue to vote for them no matter what. Even if the Senate goes Republican we are not out of the woods. Too many of them have aligned themselves with the D.C. elitist class. To be sure there are candidates and elected officials here and there who are trying their best to guard the Constitution and restore the parts that have been shredded. But there are not enough of them.

Thus, so far precious little has been done to stop the ominous tide of “progressive” anti-constitutionalists who are leading us over the cliff. Unless this is stopped, we’re done.

And the next step will be war. Patriots will never start a war due to the fact that most of us hate war with a passion. Americans have never supported war activity unless we were forced into it. The problem is we are gradually being forced into it by the progressive cabal that is firmly embedded in the permanent political class. Sooner or later the forces of anti-freedom will do something stupid and fire off some shots at the citizenry. When that happens all bets are off. There will be no stopping what will follow. Even those of us who do not want any civilians hurt will have little or no say in the matter. Once this genie is out of the bottle, it will take on a life of its own that will be out of our hands

I don’t carry a gun…

November 16, 2008

Some things never seem to change. Yet, others seem to go through metamorphism, grow, and just get better with age. Fine wine and Irish whiskey come to mind as well as tough old Boone and Crockett Bull Elk. Syd, over at Front sight Press takes this to new heights.

Hat tip to TexasFred for catching this!

Last year about this time, I wrote a piece called “I don’t carry a gun…” and it goes like this:

I don’t carry a gun…

November 13th, 2007 by Syd

… to kill people. I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don’t carry a gun to scare people. I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m paranoid. I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil. I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.

I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government. I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry. I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don’t carry a gun because my sex organs are too small. I carry a gun because I want to continue to use those sex organs for the purpose for which they were intended for a good long time to come.

I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone. I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m a cowboy. I carry a gun because, when I die and go to heaven, I want to be a cowboy.

I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man. I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate. I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don’t carry a gun because I love it. I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

The piece struck a nerve with a lot of people and it proved to be very popular. It was copied to blogs, websites and forums hundreds of times and it remains the most linked to and copied piece of writing on the blog. The reception of this piece has been deeply gratifying. I never objected to any copying or re-posting of the piece anywhere. I was glad to make the contribution to the cause.

Recently, people have begun to do something with it that is driving me nuts: they are changing a couple of words and presenting it without attribution, as if it were their own work. Believe it or not, I have actually received three different versions of it in e-mail this week, each one slightly modified but carrying the core of the original piece. I should be flattered, I guess, but I’m not.

What’s the problem with this? First of all, it is copyrighted material that I own. I could sue over this if I were the litigious kind. More importantly, this is a signature piece of creative work that I did, and it’s not right for people to change a few words and present it as their own or as an anonymous internet piece. It would be like taking Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven,” changing the name to “The Big Black Bird,” and circulating it as your own. Put yourself in the author’s place and I think you will see the problem.

These things take on a life of their own, and I know that there is no real way to put a stop to it. In many ways I am delighted that I created a “viral” idea. I would ask from those of you who are readers and friends of mine that when you receive one of these or see one posted on a forum, that you refer the sender back to this page so that they can see the way the piece was originally written, who wrote it, and how it should rightfully remain.

Thanks.

White in America

July 21, 2008

White In America!

For those of you that watched “Black in America” on CNN, you might be interested in how it is to be White in America

1. We are racists. WE can not use the “I have a black friend” excuse, it doesn’t work. WE have either owned a black person or OUR family has, and therefore WE as white people OWE every Black person in America something.

2. WE are in control of ALL money in America, WE have the ability to hire anyone, and WE never hire black people because they are black. That is the rule.

3. When Black folks walk past US and WE grab your wallet or purse, that is a racist response no matter where WE are or what time of day it is. IT is acceptable however to open OUR wallet or purse and empty the contents on the sidewalk and run because (see #1 WE OWE THEM).

4. WE vote for Barak Hussein Obama because you owe black people.

5. WE don’t vote for Barak Hussein Obama because you are racist.

Oh and according to all politicians, movie makers, media outlets, sitcoms, radio hosts, bloggers or basically ANYONE saying anything… White, hetero sexual, Christian, Males are the reason for everything bad in America. However; if you mention any facts that do not agree with that assertion YOU ARE A RACIST!

I hope one day to see true racial equality, I hope one day to see the end of the victim mentality in America, and the start of the personal responsibility era, maybe my grandchildren will see it but I honestly believe it is ingrained in the culture now. Oh Shit I must now be a racist.

Proudly Stole From:
White in America – American and Proud

Yes, I have a serious problem with these misconceptions…

Revolutionaries and Separatist Vol.1

May 26, 2008

This will probably be an ongoing theme in the coming months. It will cover home grown organizations that are dedicated to the destruction of the United States of America. Most are racist in nature, but claim that only Caucasians can be racist.

First, for no particular reason, is La Voz de Aztlan. Simply check out their official website and it becomes quite clear that these people are hell bent on destruction. They are not Klansmen, but sure do sound a lot like them and the Nazi’s when it comes to those of the Jewish faith or background. They are also way up there when it comes to conspiracy theories. Then, their plans for a new nation should be a wake up call for anyone that breathes or calls the western United States home.This page deserves special attention.

Don’t worry folks, it doesn’t end there. These people are just plain dangerous.

Some Red Neck Humor

April 21, 2008

Well .. I belong to several forums. All of them have their zealots, but all of them also have a well defined sense of humor… This is from Hunters Central, at Yahoo forums.

We are one big family, and no, there is no interbreeding in our collective pasts.

THINGS I HAVE LEARNED FROM LIVING IN ARKANSAS
 
 
 
Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.
 
There are 5,000 types of snakes on earth and 4,998 live in Arkansas .
 
There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live in Arkansas plus a couple no one’s seen before.
 
If it grows, it sticks; if it crawls, it bites.
 
Onced and Twiced are words.
 
It is not a shopping cart; it is a buggy.
 
People actually grow and eat okra.
 
‘Fixinto’ is one word.
 
There is no such thing as ‘lunch.’ There is only dinner and then there is supper.
 
Iced tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking it when you’re two. We do like a little tea with our sugar!
 
Backards and forwards means ‘I know everything about you.’
 
DJeet? is actually a phrase meaning ‘Did you eat?’
 
You don’t have to wear a watch because it doesn’t matter what time it is. You work until you’re done or it’s too dark to see.
 
You don’t PUSH buttons, you MASH them.
 
You measure distance in minutes.
 
You’ve ever had to switch from ‘heat’ to ‘A/C’ in the same day.
 
‘Fix’ is a verb. Example: ‘I’m fixing to go to the store.’
 
All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable, grain, insect or animal.
 
You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.
 
You know what a ‘DAWG’ is.
 
You carry jumper cables in your car . . . for your OWN car.
 
There are only own four spices: salt, pepper, Tabasco and ketchup.
 
The local papers cover national and international news on one page, but require 6 pages for local gossip and sports.
 
The first day of deer season is a national holiday.
 
100 degrees Fahrenheit ‘a little warm.’ We have four seas ons: Almost Summer, Summer, still Summer and Christmas.
 
Going to Wal-mart is a favorite past time known as ‘goin’ Wal-martin’ or off to ‘Wally World.’
 
A cool snap (below 70 degrees) is good pinto-bean weather.
 
A carbonated soft drink isn’t a soda, cola or pop . . . it’s a Coke, regardless of brand or flavor. Example: ‘What kinda coke you want?’
 
Fried catfish is the other white meat.
 
We don’t need no stinking driver’s ed . . . if our mama says we can drive, we can drive.
 
If you understand these jokes please forward them to your friends from Arkansas (and those who just wish they were).
 
EVERYONE can’t be a Arkansan; it takes talent. You might say it’s an art form or a gift from God!

 

God Bless Arkansas, and Texas, and… even California. At least that part called camp Pendleton!

AMERICAN BRED, American PRIDE, GOD Bless AMERICA! If God is busy, make sure that a Marine or Ranger is there to take care of GOD’S business.
