But as time passed, citizens became lazy. Collectively we slowly ceded our rights to those who supposedly serve us. Now they think we serve them… And we give them little reason to think otherwise.
Now “public servants” ignore the laws that limit their power. They dictate to you, they strip your rights as if there were no constitution that guarantees they cannot do so. And all the while a complicit media pretends it isn’t happening.
Collectively the US public has allowed people to piss on our boot and tell us it’s rain for so long that now failing to do so is now considered “extremist”.
Given that definition… Hell yes I am an “extremist”, and anyone that isn’t is just a sheep. Bottom line, if ignorance is bliss, most Americans should be ecstatic.
Here’s an interesting paired occurrence that brings into question which side of the War on Terror we are actually on.
-1- US announces $47 million in Humanitarian aid to Hamas
So John Kerry, without a discussion in Congress, announces the US will hand $47 million to Palestine. But Palestine is run by Hamas. Hamas is on the US list of terrorist entities. We can’t even legally negotiate with terrorists, but we are giving them $47 million dollars.
-2- Israel Needs Funds for Iron Dome… Administration ties it to Mexican Border Bill
Israel, our chief ally in the middle east, has been firing thousands of missiles from their “Iron Dome” defense to intercept Hamas rockets being fired from Gaza. Rockets being fired by the same guys we just handed 47 million bucks. The incredible effectiveness of the iron dome defense is the only reason we are not seeing thousands of pics of mangled Israelis.
So rather than announce we have our friends back… the Senate, at the bidding of the Obama administration, tied assisting them to the administration’s preferred bill dealing with the issue on the US-Mexico border.
So hey Israel… sorry this is a life or death situation for your civilians, but we have some internal political games to play. Meanwhile, Merry Christmas Hamas. Don’t worry about that whole “terrorist” designation. Obama has a phone and a pen, ya know.
It was the theme of the 2012 campaign. Liberals everywhere got a thrill up their little legs imagining the brawny Obama personally dispatching Osama bin Laden while Navy SEALs stood by in awe of his virile masculinity. And of course they tastefully averted their eyes when Al Qiada popped up in Ben Ghazi and put a rest to the idea they were weakened by or marginally afraid of President MomJeans.
So though Obama likes to pretend he won the war on terror…
… the simple fact is the other side is still fighting and we retreated. In that respect we “won the war on terror” roughly like we “won” in Vietnam. Our military did their job, but our civilian leadership betrayed them. It’s like fighting a bear… you don’t quit when YOU get tired, you quit when the bear does.
So bottom line, by retreating he not only did not win, the war continues to grow. In fact, because he exited Iraq without a residual force agreement… ISIS has rapidly undone the gains our military paid for with blood.
We didn’t win… just become confused which side we are on
Hamas is a terror group. That isn’t my opinion, that is official US policy. We are paying Hamas, while we screw with our ally, Israel, over assistance they need to stay alive.
So tell me, in the continuing war on terror… what side is our madras trained president really on?
Ford F150s and bright red Camaros
Billy Cook saddles and Stetson sombreros
Cheap brands of bourbon and boxes of wine
All of these things do appeal to my mind
Large breasted women and freebie lap dances
Internet porn and illicit romances
Girls who let dad-issues cloud their young mind
These are the things that appeal to my kind.
When my dog bites
When the cops sting
When I’m feeling broke
I simply remember these things that I like
And then I can take… the joke.
Bright copper cases that hold .45 slugs
Sleek semi-autos in holsters my hip hugs
Fiber night optics that see in the dark
All of these things hit it out of my park
Speckled young dogs that come back when I whistle
Troll motors that cut thru brush like a missile
Fishing lures that catch two fish at a time
These are all things I consider sublime
When the kids fight
When the truck stalls
When I feel like heck
I simply just think of these things that I like
And then I’m not such… a wreck.

Just got a Cease and Desist Order from Rogers and Hammerstein.
Also an odd obscene phone call I’m pretty sure was from Julie Andrews.
We’re $17 TRILLION + in debt, but if you shoot rockets at our best ally in the region we’ll reward you by forking over 47 million bucks?
-1- Who approves these expenditures?
-2- We don’t have any problems in the US we should attend to first?
-3- Does this send a message we really want to put out there?
If I reward people for shooting at you, would you be more or less likely to remain my friend?
If I reward bad behavior, what kind of behavior should I expect to see more of?
There are definitely days it doesn’t pay to be our ally. We’ll be lucky if we continue to have any.
Today news outlets are all atwitter with folks offering solemn soundbites about the bleached American flags that mysteriously appeared atop the Brooklyn Bridge.
- … a major security breach!
- … a startling warning!
- … a vile prank!
My personal favorite:
Whoever scaled the 200+ ft structure “had to have some expertise”.
Cool. So at least we’ve eliminated Lois Lerner’s IT staff.
AS A COURTESY TO THE NSA (et al)…
1) The president lies more than a high-school senior in the backseat of his dad’s car. And in both cases, somebody’s getting screwed.
2) Nobody wants dietary advice from a Yeti, so tell Michelle to put it where she keeps pride in her country. PS: Ask her to lighten up about people mistaking her for a guy. Heck, it happens to her husband all the time.
3) If Biden were any dumber he’d be declared a new form of plant life. And he def def definitely makes Rainman seem like a gifted orator. Quit letting him out without a keeper.
4) I’ve lit paper bags afire on a porch that contained better character than Eric Holder. Don’t know what you think he should be doing, but I recommend 20 to life.
5) If Harry Reid were any more crooked they wouldn’t have to bury him, they could just screw him into the dirt.
6) Pelosi lives in her own private reality. Next time visitors come from her home planet, please send her back.
7) If you think collecting phone calls and emails without a warrant is not a breach of the constitution… you really should be sentenced and hung. Find a better job or a better alibi.
8) If I used an industrial hydraulic press on my hard drive, it won’t make this note disappear. That same applies to Lerner’s emails. And her 6 co-workers emails. And the chick at the FEC. Everyone knows it.
Just thought I’d put this all in an easy to find spot. Hate to make you fellas have to look for them. Have a great day.
Excerpt from The Guardian:
“The expedition’s science leader [identified in the report as L2] emerged from another tent. He grabbed the rifle and fired four or five times. On each occasion a bullet was simply ejected on to the ground leaving the rifle empty. The bear then turned on L2 and mauled him about the head, causing him to drop the gun.
“The mountain leader of the expedition [identified in the report as L1] did not know where the spare bullets were and shouted for help in finding them. He diverted the bear from L2 by throwing a stone at it. The bear turned on L1 and mauled him badly.
“Other team members were attacked by the bear until L2 found one of the bullets that had been ejected, loaded the rifle and shot the animal dead.”
The report says the trip-wire system, a kind principally used by gamekeepers to protect bird pens, was “defective in terms of missing pieces of equipment”. It says paper clips had been used to try to make the mechanism work, but these were not sturdy enough or the right shape for the job. The group knew the system was unsatisfactory because a team member had tripped the wire a few days before when he went to the toilet in the night but it had not activated the alarm.
Regarding the rifle, the report concluded it was stored with the safety catch in a position that disabled the firing mechanism, leading to the emptying of the magazine.
THE REAL LEAD: They tried to save him, but left safety ON while firing
They focused on a faulty tripwire, which of itself suggests the “leaders” were too stupid to be camped in the habitat of dangerous predators, but they buried the truly sad part. The kid died when leaders defended him by “firing” a Mauser 98 4-5 times… cycling the bolt and all… with the SAFETY ON. He just kept ejecting live rounds.
Seriously, you didn’t notice it wasn’t going “BANG BANG”?
The paper points out “the rifle was stored with the safety catch in a position that disabled the firing mechanism, leading to the emptying of the magazine”.
REALLY? The safety disables the firing mechanism? Who knew?
And do you normally store a loaded gun with a safety OFF where you live? Oh, that’s right, it’s gauche and primitive to know how to operate firearms where you live… you have evolved. Right?
This whole incident is sad. The bear was taken down with one shot once someone figured out how to operate the Mauser 98.
So basically you have people that are too smart to go to the beach without taking along sunscreen… going to the ARCTIC, where bears are the size of minivans, without taking anyone that knew how to set a trip alarm or handle a firearm.
CONCLUSION: The bears WILL eat those too ignorant to defend themselves
The entire incident is a microcosm of what happens to a society that “evolves” beyond owning AND knowing how to use tools of self-defense. When you are so weak you give over your own defense to others, just understand the bears WILL kill and eat you.
And for the record, the bears may or may not be furry kind, but you’ll be just as helpless.
