For those of you that follow my blog, you already know I don’t pull any punches.  For those of you that are new to my blog, I’m telling you up front I am not prejudice: I try to be equally offensive to EVERYONE.  And today is no exception.

The stories come out of Moore, OK regarding the beheading of 54- year old Colleen Hufford are enough to make you puke.  The perp, Alton Nolan, had been fired from his job at a food processing plant and went back for whatever reason, killing Hufford and injuring another woman.  The ONLY reason this animal was stopped was because Mark Vaughan, a reserve sheriff’s deputy and the company’s COO shot him. Nolan, a convert to Islam, had been trying to convert his co-workers as well.

And authorities are classifying it as “workplace violence”.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW?????

Let’s be honest about this: this is NOT “workplace violence”- this is a blatant act of Muslim extremist TERRORISM.  Now, Nolan may have acted alone but that doesn’t change the fact that he murdered an innocent woman ISIS-style and by calling this horrendous, unthinkable EXECUTION (because, let’s face it, that’s what it was) “workplace violence”, the authorities have now condoned terrorism in its most brutal form and prevented any future freak like Nolan from being tried for the actual crime they commit: terrorism.

I am so sick of listening to Obama run his mouth about how Islam is a “religion of peace” while journalists, and now innocent factory workers, are beheaded in its name, and other freaks like Nolan celebrate like the Red Sox just won the Series.  If they think the US is so evil and Americans all deserve to die what the hell are they doing here in the first place??  If this country is so unclean why do they populate our universities??  If our women are all such whores, why do they pursue and marry them??  And if we’re all Capitalist Infidels, why are they employed here??  Let’s call a spade a spade, close our borders and start using a little racial profiling.  It’s time to STOP worrying about who we might “offend” and START protecting the American people!

But, it’s not just the Oklahoma killing.  How about the Muslin that are now part of the Ferguson protests and the traitorous congressman that supports them?  Antonio French wants to support them? Great.  He can get the hell out, too.  I’m sure they’d love to have him in Iraq or Syria and I’d love to see him go.

It’s time to stop coddling these people just because we might “offend” someone.  There is NO segment of American society that is special enough to warrant preferential treatment.  And if you think you’re part of one, get over yourself.  It’s the people that think they’re above everyone else that got us into this mess- and that includes our Commander in Chief.

 

 

 

Well, somebody’s been riding the train to Crazy Town!  Would someone please explain to me what planet the President of the United States is not only living on but is from?  ‘Cuz, there is NO WAY any human with an earth-based brain could possibly be this flagrantly stupid.  His staff lives in an alternate universe where the Benghazi massacre makes no difference (to paraphrase Hilary) and the most barbaric threat to our own national security is the “jv team”.  And now, to add to his list of Greatest Hits, Obama wants to put 3000 boots on the ground in Africa to battle EBOLA???? WTF?

I can understand sending CDC personnel or first responders.  But what the hell are troops gonna do?  Except risk contracting and spreading the disease-a disease I might add that the CDC, NIH and Bill freakin’ Gates own the vaccine patents to. Three thousand troops??  That’s four times the number currently in Iraq where there is an actual need to do something- ANYTHING- about ISIS.  But no, we’re not sending them there- we’re sending them where the odds of setting off a deadly global pandemic exponentially increase with every brigade that shows up.  Are these troops all going to be outfitted with HazMat suits?  Those are even questionable, since so many aid workers who wear them are still getting sick.  With an incubation period of up to three weeks, how many of those army personell will come home not knowing they’re infected? Something’s not right with this scenario.  Why do we suddenly have a burning desire to be on the front line in a third world country risking our service men and women over a damn virus??  Oh, well, we’ll be there for logistical support.  Uh-huh.  Here’s an idea: quarantine all the countries that are infected, ground air travel, institute martial law, don’t let anyone in or out, and let the disease run it’s course.  Yeah, it sucks to be those people, but let’s face it: it’s ALWAYS sucked to be those people.

Is this the behavior of a Commander in Chief that is in full possession of all his mental faculties?  I have a son in the military.  I am very much aware of the inherent risks in his position and I have long since come to terms with that.  However, hell and be damned if I would sit quietly by if it was MY son heading to the Ebola zone!  What the hell for??  This has sooooo much LESS to do with a “humanitarian mission” and sooooo much MORE to do with lining the pockets of those that orchestrate the kinds of war scenarios that put our troops in harms’ way on a GOOD day.

Let’s look at this:

According to the Wall Street Journal, foreign investments in Africa will total $80 Billion in 2014 with the US, UK and France leading the way.  However, the BRiCs nations are investing as well, with those countries’ investments totalling $67.7 billion in 2012.  Of those investments, China held nearly a third.  Emerging markets are THE thing these days for investors and with the vast natural resources to be found on the African continent, money is pouring in.  Of the African countries, Nigeria and South Africa are seeing the largest proportion of investors’ funds and, not coincidentally, the Islamist extremist group Boko Haram has been wreaking havoc in Nigeria in recent months.  The US even sent troops in to recover 200 schoolgirls the group had kidnapped.  Why do you suppose that was?  I seriously doubt it was due to the whiney and obnoxious celebrity pleadings out of Hollyweird.  No, I think it had MORE to do with posturing favor and LESS to do with American benevolence.  Our people are very caring- our government is NOT.

Does anyone out there remember Viet Nam?  We were there to prevent the spread of Communism.  Uh-huh.  The oil and opium was just a fortuitous coincidence.  The fact that Nigeria has gas and coal reserves has nothing to do with any humanitarian efforts we might attempt there.

How stupid do They think we are?

Explain this to me: if we can send 3000 troops to a country where the population is eating bananas and dirt just to fight a virus, why can’t we commit 1000 Marines and about a week to take out ISIS?  Because, kiddies, there is no direct benefit for Them.

Africa, however, is another story.  There’s money involved-BIG money- and, as always, if you want the Truth, follow the money.  Just for starters, let’s consider General Electric and its CEO, Jeffrey Immelt.  Already GE has invested $350 million for power projects in Africa.  And we all remember Immelt, right?  The hugely unsuccessful “job czar” in the Obama administration?  Fewer companies are  more outright global than GE.  But, Immelt’s relationship and past history with good ol’ P-Bo couldn’t possibly have anything to do with this urgent need to use American troops to contain an African contagion.  Could it?  How about Arne Sorenson, Obama’s International Trade Advisor?  He also heads up Marriot Hotels, a company that has invested $200 million in the African continent.

With all the money flowing, this is only the tip of the iceberg.  You can bet these guys ALL want their investments protected.  And what better way to do it than by using our military (‘use’ being the operative word in that sentence).  This isn’t about humanitarian aid.  This isn’t about containing a deadly contagion.  This is about greed, pure and simple.  Let’s just hope 3000 service men and women don’t end up paying the tab.

If you all thought I was quick to piss off before, welcome to Ginger Hell.  The Usurper in Chief that is currently occupying the White House needs to be strung up on the front lawn and executed for TREASON.  That’s right, I said it.  The T-word no one else has the guts to, certainly no one in CONGRESS.  The return of Bowe Bergdahl was a slap in the face to not only this country but every military family out there.  Obama makes me sick- physically sick.  Fourteen men lost their lives looking for the worthless piece of shit Bergdahl and his home town wants to give him a parade?  Are you fucking kidding me?? For WHAT???  Both he and that maggot that lives in the White House need to be waterboarded and then executed….slowly and painfully.  And on the heels of the VA scandal- don’t EVEN get me started on THAT.  There should have been a shitload more heads roll for that one.  No, we abuse and leave our vets here to die, but the deserter Bergdahl gets a goddamn parade!!  What the hell is WRONG with this country?? More importantly, what is wrong with Congress?? The release of Bergdahl was completely illegal and all the White House can say is that Congress had previously been warned about it.  WARNED about it?  Now the son of a bitch is WARNING Congress?? Well, why not?? No one in it has any sort of spine-they all make six figures a year for being invertebrates.  NO ONE has the guts to move on Obama- NO ONE.  Where is there a county sheriff with the guts to arrest the bastard??  Anyone?? Anyone??.  I know the vet community is up in arms about this and frankly, if it had been one of MY sons that died trying to get Bergdahl back, somebody would be getting a late night visit from me and a baseball bat.

I hope…I hope BEYOND hope that NOW some Sheriff comes forward or Congress begins to understand that eventually they have to go home and step up and do the right thing: arrest Obama and then execute him and his band of merry men.  And if the NSA picks this up, BRING IT………

Nick

This is Nick.

He is a 20-year-old student at the St. Louis College of Pharmacy in St. Louis, Missouri.  Nick is originally from Waukesha, Wisconsin, but has come to call the Midwest his home. nick drumming

The third year pharmacy student is a member of the Alpha Zeta Omega pharmaceutical fraternity where he is a recruitment chair, and also plays drums for his band, the Rxtions, heavily influenced by Blink 182. Nick and Meredith   Nick has a beautiful girlfriend named Meredith and is set to graduate in 2017.

I don’t know Nick.

I will never know Nick.

Nick was murdered last night at his home in St. Louis in a drive-by shooting. (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2571210/Popular-pharmacy-student-20-killed-drive-shooting-talking-friends-backyard.html)

In 2013, St. Louis was not only voted the Most Dangerous City for the third year in a row (http://blogs.riverfronttimes.com/dailyrft/2013/08/st_louis_deadliest_city_america.php)  with 120 murders, at least 31 of them  have gone unsolved.  As of January 27th of this year there had already been 12 homicides in the city.  That’s one every other day.

I have lived in St. Louis, in a great Delmar neighborhood.  I let my kids walk to Walgreens and play outside late at night when none of them were over 13.  We left the city in favor of a small jerkwater town in Illinois where the kids could continue to walk to Walgreens and play outside late at night.  Had we stayed, those days would have been over long before they were due.

The officials and staunch city supporters will tell you the numbers are skewed; that those killed were in the city, typically the North Side, an area that has slipped increasingly into the pits of Hell over the last 10 years.  They will tell you that being labelled the Most Dangerous City really isn’t fair because St. Louis County is included in that and the demographics don’t tell the full story.

Do you think that matters to Nick’s parents this morning?

Or how about the parents of Megan Boken, a St. Louis University student shot last year in her car while she was talking on the phone to her mother in broad daylight.

The two little teenage maggots that killed Megan “just wanted to rob her.”

(http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/st-louis-judge-orders–year-sentence-for-killer-of/article_aec06848-4ccb-5f42-9258-acb06bd22f20.html)

What the hell is going in St. Louis??

Is this a police problem?  Are there not enough cops on the payroll to adequately protect and serve?  No, I don’t think so.

This is a social problem, and one we have created ourselves.  We have spent so much time and money making sure the “inner city youth” have their programs and their liasons and their social work excuses for aberrant behavior that we have politically corrected ourselves into a society where the criminals have become the victims and the families of the victims never really see any true justice.  According to the State of Missouri, a conviction of second-degree murder carries an average sentence of 200 months, of which less than 75% of that is actual time served  (http://doc.mo.gov/Documents/publications/Offender%20Profile%20FY12.pdf)

Are you kidding me right now?

A murder rap can mean less than 10 years in jail?  And the same document quoted above states that the rate of recidivism over 5 years is 54%.

Over half of all those convicted re-offend within 5 years of their release.

Here’s a thought:  stiffer penalties, no plea-bargains, no slick lawyer games, and no bullshit about how the accused is a “victim of Society”.  How about a little personal responsibility and the recognition of that within the damn judicial system??  How about we get rid of the touchy-feeley court approved, federally funded programs that teach us all how to play nice and everyone gets a trophy because we’re all winners.

I got news for you:  the bastards that gunned Nick down were maggots.  The bastards that shot Megan were maggots.  They were NOT winners, they were NOT born with winner potential, and they should be afforded the same courtesies as a rabid dog.  If there was truly any “justice” within the Justice System we would see substantially less violent crime.  Kids like Megan and Nick were about to contribute to the world at large; they had goals and would one day be productive members of their communities.  The worthless meatsacks that took their lives will never produce anything except misery and pain.  No, there IS no forgiveness.  A line must be drawn somewhere or we end up where we are.

And it’s not just St. Louis.  It’s every major city where the thugs and gangbangers have taken over once-thriving neighborhoods, leaving the residents still living there in fear.  It’s every court room where a bleeding heart defense attorney lays it on thicker and deeper as he goes about broken homes, or abused childhoods, or destitute upbringings- what I like to call the “poverty defense”, as if being poor is an excuse to get away with a capital crime.  It’s every social worker that actually believes repeat malcontents deserve “one more chance”.

Nick won’t get another chance.

And I look into the eyes of that photograph of a young student so full of life, so crazy about his girlfriend, and I think that could be my son.  And unlike the Treyvons of this world, there will be no excuses, no rallies for “justice”, no calls from the President.  Why?  Because also unlike the Treyvons of this world, kids like Nick and my son understand the meaning of actions leading to consequences.  Kids like Nick and my son understand there are rules that are meant to be played by and they don’t have attorneys to play them off.  Kids like Nick and my son will make a difference in the world by being something more than a socially responsible t-shirt slogan.

Nick’s parents will not receieve a call from the President tonight offering his condolences and sympathisizing with them in their grief.  But they should.  His parents won’t get invited to the White House to speak on issues of gun violence as if the senseless killing of their son suddenly would qualify them as experts on the subject.  No, Nick’s parents will deal with their grief and their anger and their shock in the way most families do, by relying on friends and family and each other.  They will suffer in quiet anonymity, along with every other parent who has lost a child under similar circumstances, and will do whatever they can to keep their son’s memory alive, to keep their own grief from overwhelming the rest of their lives, and to one day try to move past this tragedy.

I cannot begin to understand what they must feel right now, or will feel in six months.  I can only say again it could have been my son.  That’s why I feel it’s so important that Nick’s story should be told and told over and over again, so no one forgets-so no one forgets what got us here and how we need to make the hard choices to get out-so no one forgets it could have been their son.

I never knew Nick.

But my son did.

And now, maybe, you do too…….

…apparently, pussies bail. With the situation in the Ukraine going from bad to worse with every passing hour, and the US potentially being on the hook for material support due to the Budapest Accord (.us/177483-budapest-memorandum-treaty-signed-in-1994-may-commit-u-s-britain-to-defend-ukraine/)  (what the hell was Clinton thinking?), our National Security team met to discuss the gory details.  However, Obama was not in attendance:

Daniel Halper The Weekly Standard

3/1/2014

A White House official emailed some reporters to say that President Obama’s team met today to discuss the ongoing situation on Ukraine. It appears President Obama did not attend. “The President’s national security team met today to receive an update on the situation in Ukraine and discuss potential policy options. We will provide further updates later this afternoon,” reads the full statement. According to Time magazine’s Zeke Miller, Obama skipped the meeting. “Obama did not attend the meeting, but WH official says he has been briefed by Susan Rice and his national security team,” says Miller. Read more at The Weekly Standard.”

(thank you Weekly Standard)

Not in attendance.

Hmmm.

So…where was he?

Maybe he was playing golf.

Or jogging around the White House with Uncle Joe.joe and pbo

Or maybe napping because of all that golf and jogging. napping

Regardless, he didn’t seem to have time to be bothered with the Ukraine. Much like he didn’t seem to have time to be bothered with Benghazi.  But, never fear: just like Benghazi, he’s got the lovely, talented and gosh darn honest Susan Rice, his National Security Advisor, the same Susan Rice who provided such outstanding intel the night Christopher Stephens and 3 others, including two Navy SEALs were violently murdered in Libya.  I’m sure she briefed him on the meeting with the utmost clarity and integrity.  I have no worries regarding the Ukraine knowing that we have top-notch leadership at the helm.

Don’t you sleep better at night?

Obviously, the fact that the Sixth Fleet being on the way to the Black Sea must be of no consequence (http://beforeitsnews.com/global-unrest/2014/03/us-sixth-fleet-races-towards-black-sea-nato-troops-land-in-ukraine-2458006.html) since Obama chose to skip the meeting.  I mean, after all, they were sorta already there since they were providing security for the Sochi Olympics.

Sorta already there…..

Does anyone else find that to be a remarkable coincidence or is it just me?

Here’s my prediction for the Ukraine, a prediction that was actually offered by a source within the Intel community:  the Ukraine will be split, much like Germany after WWII, into East and West, with the pro-Russian Nationalists in the East under Putin’s skirt, and the West begging the EU for continual help because it’s population is starving.

Let’s not forget that the Ukraine itself is broke, it’s only two presidents having run its treasury into the ground.  Is the rest of the world ready to take on the responsibility for taking care of Western Ukraine?  Is the US prepared to follow its standard MO and dump billions of dollars into yet another country when we’re slashing our domestic spending to the point where our active military are relying on food stamps?  (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/02/17/see-the-eye-popping-chart-about-food-stamps-and-the-military/)

Does anyone else see a problem with this?

There seems to be a HUGE disconnect between the fantasy of the US being the bastion of salvation for the world and the reality of the US not being willing to take care of the very people that protect its right to maintain that fantasy.

The Ukraine needs to be responsible for the Ukraine.  And if anyone feels we should help those “poor people” who are just trying to “establish democracy” or whatever the hell the story is our State Department spins, let’s remember that the US started all this in the first place (http://consortiumnews.com/2014/02/23/neocons-and-the-ukraine-coup/) and NOT for the benefit of the people- ours OR theirs.  The Ukraine is just one more move in the game of geopolitical chess our world “leaders” are playing, and whatever their next move is, it certainly won’t be in our favor…..

Looks like it’s on in the Ukraine.  The Russian Vice Admiral has declared war.

(investmentwatchblog.com/breaking-russian-admiralty-announces-war-with-ukraine-for-crimea-crimean-airspace-closed-all-communications-cut-us-navy-status-page-down)

As of this writing, it’s 6:30pm in the Heartland, and just about 3 hours our Feckless Leader, Barack Obama, came out on national news (they even broke into Judge Judy’s show for this) threatening that “there would be costs” if Putin made his move.

And Putin did.

So, what now?

Let’s look at this situation about as objectively as we can.  Let’s pretend for a minute that this whole Ukrainian uprising thing wasn’t fomented, backed and funded by US.  Yes, us. (http://consortiumnews.com/2014/02/23/neocons-and-the-ukraine-coup/)  And let’s pretend that we have no interest in throwing in our favorite Central Banking puppet as a new Prime Minister or President just to prop up the dollar (http://www.prisonplanet.com/central-banker-appointed-as-prime-minister-of-ukraine.html).  Let’s even pretend that we have no interest in their energy reserves (http://globalresearch.ca/articles/ENG412A.html).  All that aside, what could we possibly gain from backing the Ukraine in the face of Putin?

Yep.

Nothing.

Regardless of what the agenda-complicit media spins the Ukrainian chaos into, let’s not forget that the United States has NO BUSINESS providing any sort of military intervention.  What’s happening in the Ukraine is an internal matter involving the people of the Ukraine and,now, Russia.  While I think the rioting is horrendous and the families of those protesters killed should have our sympathies, WE have no need to go any further.  We do not need to send billions in aid when we have just decimated our own military (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/02/24/pentagon-budget-sequestration-army-size/5775291/).  We do not need to get involved in THEIR politics.  And we most certainly do not need to support them in this war with our troops.

So, that begs the question: what are the “costs” that Obama is talking about?

If this is taken before the NATO Security Council, it will be bounced, because Ukraine is not a NATO country.  If it’s taken to the UN, Russia sits on the Security Council there, so how do you think THAT will go?  And if Obama decides to do the DUMBEST thing possible and actually intervene with military aid,  that could quite possibly be the tipping point for a revolution here at home.

Again, I ask:  what are the “costs” Obama is talking about?  What cards could he possibly have to play?  We all know that our only interest in the Ukraine is what it can provide for us.  If this same thing was happening in Great Britain and the Scots suddenly decided to revolt (hey, it’s comin’)  no one would give a shit because they have nothing we want.

This situation will become much, much worse before it gets better, and I hope that we can stay far enough removed from it as to not have those “costs” reflected here at home.  As they say, the situation is “fluid” and it will be worth watching to see how it plays out.

As ever, eyes open.  It’s gonna get weird…..

There is an old Chinese curse that says “May you live in interesting times.”  Yep, that about sums it up- the times are most definitely “interesting”.  I perused the headlines on various internet alternative media sites this morning, as I do every morning (how do you think I keep you all so well entertained?) and I found this video that was extremely “interesting”.Proof Obama is a Member of the Muslim Brotherhood

Why, you ask?  Well, that’s where it gets “interesting” and makes Obama look even worse in light of the Western Center for Journalism’s claims. If you want to get to the heart of the matter you always follow the money.  If a group is declared a “terrorist organization” a few things happen:

  • It is unlawful for a person in the United States or subject to the jurisdiction of the United States to knowingly provide “material support or resources” to a designated FTO. (The term “material support or resources” is defined in 18 U.S.C. § 2339A(b) as “currency or monetary instruments or financial securities, financial services, lodging, training, expert advice or assistance,safehousesfalse documentation or identification, communications equipment, facilities, weapons, lethal substances, explosives, personnel, transportation, and other physical assets, except medicine or religious materials.”)
  • Representatives and members of a designated FTO, if they are aliens, are inadmissible to and, in certain circumstances, removable from the United States (see 8 U.S.C. §§ 1182 (a)(3)(B)(i)(IV)-(V), 1227 (a)(1)(A)).
  • Any U.S. financial institution that becomes aware that it has possession of or control over funds in which a designated FTO or its agent has an interest must retain possession of or control over the funds and report the funds to the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

As well as:

The U.S. Department of State lists the following items as additional considered beneficial effects of designation:

  • Supports efforts to curb terrorism financing and to encourage other nations to do the same.
  • Stigmatizes and isolates designated terrorist organizations internationally.
  • Deters donations or contributions to and economic transactions with named organizations.
  • Heightens public awareness and knowledge of terrorist organizations.
  • Signals to other governments U.S. concern about named organizations.

(http:///en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._State_Department_list_of_Foreign_Terrorist_Organizations)

Not only does its funding dry up but it goes on the Naughty List and other countries are urged to do the same. Now, what do you think that would do for the goal of establishing a world-wide Caliphate?  If we stopped throwing billions at them I’m thinking it might be a bit of a hinderance.  It would be impossible to establish Shariah law on every continent without some cash.  And, if you’re in the business of terror, you gotta have the Benjamins for necessities like explosives and the suicide bombers’ Broncos.  (you never see a suicide bomber driving a volkswagon- why is that?)

So, we have a half-dozen or so acknowledged members of the Brotherhood sitting in various cabinet positions, including Assistant Secretary for Policy Development.  (Hmm.  Policy Development.  I wonder what THAT means.) Anybody seen the old Invasion of the Body Snatchers where all the high school teachers are replaced by brain-sucking pod people in order to infiltrate and take over the town?

Need I say more?

I am not Islamophobic- to be so would go directly against not only my spiritual path but my Libertarian beliefs as well.  Saying everyone who practices Islam is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood would be like saying everyone in Northern Ireland was a member of the IRA.  However, it would be extremely fool-hardy not to examine this issue further, given the treatment the Brotherhood receives at the hands of this President.  Airport walk-throughs?  Really?  My oldest son in the military gets what he calls “preferential treatment” but he still gets searched.  (Maybe they think he’s in training to be one of those “disgruntled veterans” on the DHS watch list.)So, while American citizens are being droned to death overseas without due process, and our military has to be subjected to the TSA’s disgusting scrutiny, the Brotherhood is welcomed with open arms into the country AND into the White House.  First of all, what the hell are they doing THERE??  I’m sure ol’ Barry’s passing the blunt around and they’re all just chillin’ in the Oval Office.

We know for a FACT that Obama gave 1.5$ billion to the Brotherhood during the Egyptian Spring.  It may be as high as 8$ billion, siphoned off in secret from our own Treasury ( I’ve included the link to the story, however, I cannot vet this information.  I only include it to illustrate that other countries are as displeased with Obama as we are). Obama’s secret Bribe to the Brotherhood  And with the most sincere affection, I have to say to writer Doug Mataconis:  Are you that stupid? (Obama Didn’t Give 1.5$ Billion to the Brotherhood).  Do you actually believe it was in military assistance only?  I’m reasonably sure Mr. Mataconis believes Benghazi was because of a video,too.  (Why not?  Hilary did.)

The bottom line here, folks, if you’re reading this blog you already know something is rotten in Denmark and our window of opportunity is getting smaller.  How many videos like the ones linked here have to surface before we say enough is enough?  I’ve had it.  I just don’t care anymore; let the NSA record my phone calls, log my emails and put me on a “List”.  I wasn’t born in a Fascist country and I don’t intend to die in one.  I feel like I am constantly politically evangelizing, but if that’s what it takes, that’s what it takes.  For you Believers out there, share my blog with someone who doesn’t believe.  Pass it on to someone who doesn’t think we’ll ever be Cypressed, who sees the Constitution as “antiquated”, oh, and PLEASE give it to someone who thinks gun control will save lives.  In the meantime, consider the May 16th march on DC (there’s really great museums there!), kiss a soldier and thank him, and keep your powder dry-it’s gonna get a whole lot weirder out there….
