So, get inside the loop.

Propaganda spin here.

Your answer to said tyranny here.

Guys, I’m here to tell you. I went from zero to 80% autonomous with about $600 and five working days. Figure out how to get that production cost down to even half of that and you have just out OODA’d dotgov by millions of dollars.

Guess what? Your ROI is way shorter.

The possibilities are endless.

Resistance is the Path of Least Resistance

Like Mike said, opportunity:

As for me, I also see opportunity. Personally, I would like to thank the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations for spreading out all this military hardware into the hinterland where, in an emergency, the armed citizenry can get its hands on it without having to trespass on a military base.

Listen to Deacon fellow III. Bob the local deputy will forget to put the lock on the armory, but that really doesn’t matter because his response to you taking it won’t be much of anything as it will likely take them days to figure out that it walked out on a Tuesday when the moon was full.

Imagine the disruption. Imagine the cover up as the local constabulary would be remiss to tell the truth that the suppressed and full auto G36 they got from dotgov up and disappeared.

Macro Manuvers Part II

Wow. Two Iran posts in one day.

From Zerohedge, via Bloomberg headlines.

My key takeaway:

This as Germany, Italy, and now France also call back their Ambassador from Iran.

That’s just special. All this while SB 1867 launches itself into the lexicon of US law with the fanfare of the Lee Greenwood crowd.

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.

Political Observations

Not a political blog. Never will be, though I believe that the following will have drastic impact on FREFOR/OPFOR going forward.

A few predictions and opinions:

  • Romney will emerge as the clear Republican lead and get the nomination. This is based on my suspicion that he already has it sown up and this debate cycle with the rest of the crowd is merely theater to show the populace that they do indeed have some kind of say in big party politics.
  • Obama will win in 2012. Not by the same margin as before, but will eek out a victory and spin it as a crystal clear mandate that he is indeed the chosen one who will in the soon to be immortal words of Chris Rock, “Get his real gangster shit on…”.
  • #gunwalker, while horrible and infecting dotgov across the board, will fizzle and be replaced by something just as bad that will also be ignored by 99% of the Fourth Branch of Government.
  • To distract from the #depression, dotgov will launch some kind of offensive on Iran. This will happen in the next 12 months. Whether it will be initiated by the Israelis is of no consequence. The engagement will eventually become a US operation.

Merely opinions. YMMV.

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!

Rallying AP’s meme – #RESIST

USMC as OPFOR or FREFOR?

I dig on Marines. My maternal grandfather (who died a few years ago at 84) was one, and an old school one at that. He managed to survive the Pacific Campaign in WWII. Tough old bastard. He taught me to shoot. Kind of a scary dude actually, but I digress…

See Vox’s post here:

So, the Washington-Wall Street Axis of Corruption have the police, the media, and the Mexican gangs to whom they are selling guns and with whom they are laundering drug money. We the People only have the angry veterans of the USMC on their side.

Though, at heart, I truly wonder if the vaunted and venerated USMC will be on our side. Having that crowd solidly into the OPFOR camp stacks the odds so far against us that I fear the outcome…
