Again; not about GUNS it’s all about CONTROL. Any of you who think differently are either naive or willfully ignorant. I guess I should clarify: You may personally think that it’s about guns, but I’ll guarantee you that the regime does not. This out of control, Marxist, murderous, law-breaking administration actually doesn’t give a rat’s a** about guns or your children , just using this “crisis” as a means to either provoke, continue chaos or both, while getting in some more control regulations.

(this’ll probably put me down for a room in the camp😉 )

Mourning in America

With apologies to President Reagan’s 1984 campaign.

When Hal Riney (who wrote and narrated the ad) said the words “Morning in America” he was giving voice to the idea that it was a new day dawning and things were  better, and they were. From the “malaise” of Carter’s America to the get-it-done attitude of Reagan’s America.

When I used the word “mourning” in the phrase, I intend it to mean exactly what you probably understand it to mean: Enter into a time of grief, for something great has died.

Of course the ones who will mourn are those who actually care about the America that was a shining city on a  hill. The light of hope to a dark and corrupt world. A place where one could actually aspire to whatever one wanted to do, and with enough talent and hard work achieve those aspirations.

Now it appears that the highest aspirations of a majority of voters is to live off the government dole or payroll. The Takers have taken over and now demand their due from the Makers.  As long as the takers don’t have to worry about anything more important than where to get their malt liquor and free phone they will be OK. Keep those SNAP cards and disability checks coming in and we won’t burn down the cities.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largess from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising them the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy…. The world’s great civilizations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependence back again into bondage.” Alexander Tyler (ca.1770)  More here.

Got to hand it to the Liberals/Progressives/Commies, they have steadily worked the problem of how to take away the independence and freedom of Americans. It seems they have achieved their goals: A permanent class of dependent-on-the-gubmint people who vote. It started with the schools, and the unions, and the media. Once the civil service and the teachers were unionized, it was just a matter of keeping the effort moving FORWARD. And no, I’m not saying there was a vast conscious conspiracy, just groups of like minded fools idiots people who understood that to accomplish their goals this is the path to take.

This rant could go on for pages, but I’ll end it soon. I just want to say that my whole reason for wanting America to stay free is for my grandchildren. As selfish as that sounds it’s honest. My life on this mortal coil will end within a few years, but my grandchildren will have to live with massive debt or a total financial collapse. How could anyone want that reality for their loved ones? But with the re-election of obama, that is exactly the minimum future. It could get worse. I believe we missed the last exit to get off the road to destruction. Now we are motoring down that “Highway to Hell”.

“Bye,Bye Miss American Pie” RIP Lady Liberty and freedom. Goodbye Constitution, it was nice while it lasted. God have mercy on us.

You’re doing a heck of a job Barry!

“Where does America stand? You see when the friends or foes alike don’t know the answer to that question, unambiguously and clearly, the world is likely to be a more dangerous and chaotic place.” – Condoleeza Rice

Not that I’m any great shakes at prognostication, but anybody with any time living in Realville could have predicted some fiasco would happen after the jihadists took over. Back in Jan I wrote a short piece to that effect.

Dhimmi thinking: “Just sympathize with them and all will be well.”  Idiots.

Let’s see: A mob in Egypt storms our embassy, tears down our flag, raises a POS terrorist flag. Then in Libya a mob attacks our consulate in Benghazi and manages to kill our Ambassador and 3 staff members and the media (MSM) is saying it’s all over some poorly produced amateur YouTube video. Right. I’ve got some land and a bridge to sell you. Dummies

These attacks were planned and executed by direction of some leader; they were not spontaneous. Does the date 9/11 signify anything to the liberals? No, probably not. Obviously Dear Leader didn’t think it necessary to attend any intelligence meeting/briefings for a week before these attacks. Too busy going to fundraisers or playing golf. Putz!

The one on the left went on to become an effective leader of a nation, the one on the right just stayed a chump.

Meet with the leader of our strongest and most consistent ally in the middle east? Naw, can’t be bothered, but I’ll meet with the leader of Egypt and go on Letterman. Participate in ceremonies for 9/11? Naw, but I’ll do a radio interview with some no talent hip hop DJ. Poser!

  Can’t lose the chance to score some bucks!

Of course when Mr. Romney expresses his outrage on the attacks before Dear Leader has made his statement, the propaganda arm of the Democrat party the mainstream media jumps all over him asking why he (Romney) jumped the gun , and did he regret his statements. AYFKM  Really? That’s the important questions?  Romney was the only one making statements that looked and sounded like an adult. Schmucks!

So now the Won has decided to send more money to Egypt, but he’s not sure if they’re an Ally or enemy.  Echos of Jimmy Carter.

I guess Carter doesn’t have to worry about being the worst President in modern times, Obama has surpassed him.

And there’s more: I saw where our oh so effective Secretary of State was in Morocco saying Islam is a Great Religion. WTH. (It’s actually more of a political philosophy.) Some more of that progressive thinking, that Kumbaya-it-takes-a-village BS. How’s that all worked out for y’all?

“The gang that couldn’t shoot straight” is the perfect appellation for this cabal. Except that they have succeeded in wrecking the economy and making our enemies bolder. The kind of  thinking that this regime manifests is dangerous.

I really believe November is our last chance to start to reverse this mess, and no I don’t think this GOP ticket is the best we could have fielded, but it is what it is. If Oblamebush and the Zombie Rats Democrats are not roundly turned out, it’s going to get real ugly.

I’ll make another prediction: If Obama is defeated some cities will burn. It’s not a prediction I find any pleasure in making, but I think there are some people who will take an Obama defeat poorly to the point of violence. Look at the Rodney King verdict. And that was not near the status of Obama being elected, and then being rejected.

One more: There is usually an October surprise. Now this is just really winging it, but what if there is a crisis of some kind that requires a declaration of a National Emergency? Banking crisis, real hot war in a large region?- doesn’t matter what it is, maybe even a crisis manufactured? All that has to happen is a declaration and “we will have to put off the elections until we get this crisis under control”. There are any number of standing Executive Orders that allow the complete takeover of this nation or at least large enough chunks of it that the regime could easily be in power for a long time. I would make plans with a bias towards a little paranoia.

I’ll be working on the bunker if you need me.

Ignorance is Bliss, (in some cases)

I guess in some cases that ignorance is bliss. This video is  about 5 minutes long but says so much about the so called enlightened,progressive party of Obama. Especially the one who says “whatever my President wants, I’ll support” that is truly frightening. That is the same type of thinking that gets anybody in trouble. “Just following orders” etc, etc–you know where unthinking and blind loyalty leads.

Those same non-thinking fools idiots Kool-aid drinkers  leftists then buy into this line of BS: “we all belong to the Government”.  What! Wait, I don’t belong to the government, I use the government when necessary, but the government belongs to me. For without the producers paying taxes there would be no government. Dummies!

Old Bombers @ Kingman AZ

H/T: Old NFO blog post.
“Historic pics from Kingman in 1947-48 as all the bombers were destroyed…As you watch, take a look at the numbers of bombing missions these birds survived, and how many were patched in various ways and places!”
It is a sad, but noble journey. The aircraft weren’t needed any longer, so they were stripped, crushed and recycled to make consumer goods. People were tired of the war and having to do without, so these proud and stalwart defenders of freedom gave up their materials-again- for the ones for whom they fought.
I know, I know. I’m imbuing feelings on an inanimate machine– still—.
Also notice the nose art; those young men knew what they were fighting for;) winking

Simple question

It is impossible to raise the tax high enough on the “rich” to pay off the debt. Take all their money and it would not make much of a dent in the debt. It’s not rocket surgery, there is not enough money in the GDP to pay off the debt:

Debt as of 07/31/12=15,933,234,637,493.00, GDP as of 2011=15,094,000,000,000.

I know most of you are capable of doing the math, so tell me how taxing the “rich” is going to pay off the debt?

A (re-)statement of questions.

This was from June of 2011. The questions are still relevant–they’ll always be relevant.


QOTD: “The [Sixth Circuit] majority [decision upholding Obamacare’s individual mandate] is ludicrous. It stated, “Virtually everyone will need health care services at some point, including, in the aggregate, those without health insurance.”


“All of us will need shelter. Should government control the residential housing market and compel individuals to buy approved housing?


All of us will need clothes. Should government control the clothing market and compel individuals to buy approved clothing?


All of us will need food. Should government control the food supply and compel individuals to buy only approved foods?


All of us will need transportation. Should government control all modes of transportation and compel individuals to buy only approved transportation services?


And, now that the Constitution has been shredded, where does this control over the individual end?


I’ll tell you where it ends: with the destruction of this Republic, by a fifth column called the cadaver of the Democrat Party, a once-proud and patriotic group that has been utterly subsumed by the maggots known as Marxists.” Doug Ross


(Emphasis above  is mine)


This is ONLY about the Federal Government getting more power; if you believe that a great lumbering bureaucracy cares about you, you’re delusional enough to vote for Obama. You’re delusional enough to believe that more spending will result in a lower debt, crazy enough to believe that if we are just nice to the Islamists that they will make nice with us. And probably in so much denial that you believe that what happens on American Idol/The Voice/Jersey Shores–whatever– is important   If you believe any of that, Please,please do not vote! You’re part of the problem. (Hey, if the Panthers can physically intimidate voters and get away with it, I can beg you not to vote)


Look at Europe, do you really want to go down that path? that way leads to Greece, Spain, etc. Nothing but shells of their former glory, with a large dependent class and unsustainable debt. The CBO estimates that by 2035 Americas debt service will take 200% of GDP to pay–Impossible! My prediction is we won’t last until 2035 if we don’t change our present direction NOW! and continue in 2012 with a sweeping out of the spenders (either party),drastically reduce spending (back to FY 2001 levels), lower taxes (or eliminate them and go with the Fair Tax) otherwise, say goodbye to our country as we know it. That would mean our children and grandchildren would be stuck with something that is hard for me to envision; a world with no where to go to escape the stifling,choking stench of Socialism/Marxism/oppressiveness. No place to escape to, to be able to enjoy individual liberty, freedom.


We have to get back to the Constitution. To the founding ideas. We have to desire freedom and liberty more than convenience and pleasure.


Pray for our country.

Wherein I confess to agreeing with a Liberal (GASP!)

One of my liberal friends (yes I do have them) goes on about ending tax subsidies for “Big Oil”, whatever that is, he might be surprised that I agree that Government subsidies should be withdrawn from ALL industries. Let them thrive or whither as dictated by the free market. Of course then the Government would have to de-regulate to the point of actually having a free market. You know that’s not going to happen; that would give away too much power to the people. The coercive utopians in charge can’t have mere proles making decisions, why the proles aren’t capable of making sound choices.

Good stuff here.

Doc Collins Part III

This took place :  “After returning to England for further training, the Division hit Utah Beach on 10 June 1944 (D plus 4) , cut off the Cotentin Peninsula, drove on to Cherbourg and penetrated the port’s heavy defenses.” From Combat Chronicle@ http://www.mrfa2.org/9thWWIIa.htm

Also see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cotentin_Peninsula


Doc was relaxing when the platoon Sgt hollered for him to come on. The Sgt was discarding his weapons and told Collins to put down his weapons and grab his medical kit. As they were walking away from the company area Sgt Ohlinsky told Collins his plan was to go up the hill and see what the Germans were up to. “Doc”, he said, “you just follow my lead and we’ll be fine.” Collins thought, “This ought to be interesting.”

The hill had been blasted clear of trees, nothing there but scrub and dirt and lots of craters. They slogged on up the hill knowing that the Germans had them under their sights. Even with the iron sights of the K98 Mauser the Krauts couldn’t miss them. About 50 feet from the top they were told to halt. Four Germans came forward casually holding their weapons. A German Sgt spoke and asked what they were doing on this hill. Ohlinsky said,” Well, my medic here wanted to offer you any help or medicine that you needed, and I wanted to tell you that you have a chance to save your men from further death and destruction. About 2 or 2:30 this hill is scheduled to be bombed to dust and there is no place you and your brave men can go; there is water behind you and our division on the other 2 sides of this hill.” Collins had given the medical kit to another German and was listening to the Sgt tell what Collins thought was a big lie. The German Sgt looked at Collins as if to confirm what this brash American was saying, Collins looked him square in the eyes and said, “We just got the word about an hour ago. Since you can’t escape, the war for you will be over one way or another. You can save your men; there doesn’t have to be anymore killing on this hill.”

Collins and the Sgt started back down the hill, the Germans made no move to stop them. After they got back to the Company area they finally looked back and the Germans were trooping down the hill under a white flag, tossing their guns aside. As the Germans got to the company area the G.I.s started getting them into rank order. About an hour later around 2:00 p.m. a flight of P-47s flew over and started pounding the hill, the Germans started whooping and hollering and shaking the American’s hands and grinning like  possums eating briars. The Americans were surprised and started handing out cigarettes and chocolate. No one was more surprised than Doc Collins though. He found the Sergeant and asked him if he knew the planes were really coming. Sarge winked and said, “Sometimes things just work out for the best.”

Altogether they captured about 200 German soldiers and saved lives on both sides.

Part II here.  Part I here.

Republic P-47  Thunderbolt.  Picture source.

More to come. I’ll  do more battles  and his time as a POW of the Germans.
