The Long, Hot Summer Indeed

Prayers Mike. Always.

Our long, hot summer ahead.

Deployed to the Rockpile unless redirected to Chicago. That would not surprise me in the least. I thought the summer of 2009 would have been it, but it looks like the odds are increasing by the minute on a very bloody summer across our Once Great Republic.

The same old political and social class stratification arguments are pushing us in directions that we never wanted to go. Intentional? At this point, does it really matter?

AP has a good one here. Fairly sure I agree with him. I lived in that area of FL for a long time and understand the very simple cultural aspects of that part of our country. And quite honestly, this is getting worse and worse.

An no, Mr. Kerodin, I’m not sure I am ready for true evil.

Want some heartfelt insight? Doesn’t matter. That’s the kind of mood I’m in this evening.

Every Sunday, for the last few weeks, as I sit in church and listen to one of the greatest communicators that the world has ever seen, one constant prayer plays over and over in my mind:

“Lord, please, let us find a way out that doesn’t come to a fight. Please let us go on, and find that one way out that won’t involve bloodshed.”

Ideas are Timeless

See AP post here. I stole the title from the first comment because, as always, someone else said it better and I’m lazy.

See Patriot’s Lament here for the linked post.

These goons just won’t stop. They think so little of us serfs they don’t even want to bother having to hear our voices. Whatever happened to the Right to Petition grievances? Have you goons not read about the colonist and king George?
Nah, that’s to much trouble.

See, here’s the rub. Ideas are timeless. The thought police push further and further, and these laws (writs on paper) are just that. The spirit of Liberty still lives with some of us. It is those few who will stand our ground as the forces of darkness encroach further upon the masses.

I for one would never stand for this. I am armed ALL of the time – even when the state says I cannot be. Whatever happened to disregarding excrement like this and going forward as free men? Where are the free men & women?

As CA so succinctly puts it, I am already dead. It is what I do with the time I have left here that counts.

Thoughts on Thoughts

Was reeling from a few things I have been reading this morning and ran across this from AP.

Here’s what I took away from it that has a great deal of meaning to me:

Every force in this world is desperately trying to destroy my family, my ability to provide for them, trying to take our liberties, render obsolete our values, control our futures, re-order our world.

I tell you what, rightfreakingnow.

I’m a father and a man, and I intend to fight it.

I could not have said it better had I spent hours and hours trying to craft the very same thought.

Thanks AP. That made my day.

Global Movements: Iran

Arctic Patriot outlines a few things that if go into effect, will impact you greatly down the road.

Forget Iran.  Forget Israel.  Forget Iraq, Saudi, Libya, Egypt, Afghanistan, Pakistan…Forget the entire Middle East.  

Really.


Not our world, not our culture, not our business.

Our own tribe is sick and dysfunctional enough.

Should we be attacked by a hostile state, then it’s total war until the threat is gone.  Otherwise, it’s not a fight worth fighting.  I am applying my MHG logic here.  If failure is not an option, win.  If failure is a livable option, do not fight.

“Failure”, that is, a nuclear Iran, clearly is an option.  Why do I say this?  We watched idly as North Korea screamed for attention over its nukes.  Really, is a nuclear North Korea less dangerous than a nuclear Iran?

Why is Israel more valuable to us as an ally than South Korea?  Why is it allowable for South Korea’s aggressive neighbor to have nukes, but not Israel’s?  What is Israel to the US, other than a place to sink billions of dollars in “foreign aid”, stolen from you and I?

I realize this post may make many of you uncomfortable, or even angry.  So be it; it is truth as I see it.

A war with Iran and its unintended consequences in not in the interests of the united States, or their citizens.

It is, however, in the interest of the “US” national government, and their crony-capitalist bedfellows.

A war is exactly the type of band-aid solution the US government traditionally reaches for in desperation.

Good commentary as usual.

 

Supressive Fire in a Compact Package

I’m taking the same road that AP is with regard to a battle implement. I like those words (battle implement) so much more so that gun, boomstick, or “new toy”.

Ordered up some of the parts today while I should have been paying attention in the finance meeting.

Had the lower lying around. I buy those in bulk, along with parts kits, barrels, and mags. Cash only, and in parking lots.

More later. Should prove to be an interesting experiment if I can get it to run right!

Wisdom

Thanks for posting AP:

In fifty words: Granted mobility, security (in the form of denying targets to the enemy), time, and doctrine (the idea to convert every subject to friendliness), victory will rest with the insurgents, for the algebraical factors are in the end decisive, and against them perfections of means and spirit struggle quite in vain.

-T.E. Laurence

 

Collapse: As in, wait for it.

So go read AP’s latest.

I hear many voices among the cacaphony of Occupy.  What I do not hear are the voices of those who put liberty above all else.  That is a shame, because, were I a betting’ man, I would wager that something is gonna come of this.  Maybe good, maybe bad.

I wish more people on the “FreeFor” side would really and seriously read Mein Kampf.  Scary and unrealistic/realistic Hitler analogies and demonizations aside, one can learn a lot about politics and group dynamics in a democracy from his book, life, and methods.  Hate him if you like, but he was a political genius.

Same with Che, Machiavelli, and Alinsky, to name a few more.

Not a lot of literature from the FreeFor (Team Freedom) perspective on resistance (short of war). So, we take what we can get.

This…

Stop whining about your lack of Constitutional rights and do something. Waiting on the end of the bloody world is only going to get you killed.

I have read Mein Kampf. AP is right about the political ability of history’s biggest villain. Knowledge is indeed power – even woefully politically incorrect knowledge. While you’re at it, get of copy of The Prince and read some of Mao’s stuff. Believe it or not, you will not, all of a sudden like, turn to the darkside for ingesting this stuff.

For all that is holy and sacred, reading this stuff is reading your enemy’s playbook! Take advantage of the fact that it’s out there and get inside their decision cycle!

After you finish this, go spend some quality time with Musashi, Sun Tzu, and especially, John Boyd.

Go forth and DO!
