I’m traveling for my new day gig. Lots. Mrs. Matson is pissed and the brood misses having dad around every night. Opportunities sometimes cause situations like this to pop up. This too shall pass.
This also means I have the indelible displeasure of having to deal with the TSA on a twice weekly basis. Awesome. To top it off, most of said travel is to Detroit. Lovely – which is actually not that bad where I happen to be while there, though I have gear cached and a detailed E&E plan to head 180 if I need to.
On top of this I am involved in a few web/software type startups. I generally roll the dice on stuff like this to see what can come out of a little effort. Sometimes the payoff is high. Most times not.
Finally, I started a drone manufacturing company last week while out on the road. It will be based in GA unless something radical changes on that front. I will share details as that one progresses because I believe it has the most significance to what I talk about here. Like Kerodin’s citadel and arms company, this org will strive to build for the citizenry in support of liberty and freedom. Details soon with pics of the prototypes.
It is better to be free than compliant.
It is better to be a man, controlling your own destiny and responsible for your own actions and choices rather than to be a slave to unjust dictates uttered by an inept group of quislings.
Despite the darkness that approaches, we are actually in a quiet period with regard to our right to keep and bear arms.
PDB reminds us that the lessons of 1994 through 2004 should never be forgotten and simple things should be a reminder that we should never allow our guard to be down through inaction or complacency.
In 2004 I went on a buying spree and picked many mags of like markings. They are now prized possessions and reminders of my coming of age during those dark days.
Ran across this while on my morning reading ritual.
Some mornings I wake up and literally feel as if I have been transported into another dimension. After reading the above link, today was again one of those mornings. One has to stop and think that if this is where we are right now, what will the next six, twelve, and eighteen months look like? Then, a wave of panic washes over me and I think, “How in the hell am I going to survive in this kind of environment? What about my wife and daughters? How will I feed them when we have no income? How can I secure and defend what I have when my own government is fundamentally opposed to me being independent of their force?”
Then I remember…
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Endowed by their creator. Bestowed upon free men by God.
The brief panic subsides and I regain my composure.
I am a Free Man. Not because of what some law says, or some bureaucrat dictates, but because the Lord God Almighty has instilled these values in me from my birth.
Dear readers, please, never forget this. Our Once Great Republic may not last, but the never ending liberty endowed by our creator will never fade into the dark night. It is the eternal light that shines as a beacon for all human kind to see.
