America 2009 meet America 2008

I'd like to introduce everyone to President Obama. He won last Novembers Presidential elections in a landslide over some angry old white guy. He's hot stuff right now because he's eloquent and previous pres. Bush, not so much. Why did Obama win? Well Obama won because... Democrats wanted to take the White House and Obama managed to convince them that he was the most DEMOCRAT of any DEMOCRAT while managing to convince most of the rest of America that he wasn't a Clinton or a Bush. And sadly the Republicans, they just wanted "change."

Well we changed into John McCain, the epitomy of an impotent angry old white guy... FUN CHANGE! Why is it every time we elect the guy whose "time it is" to run for President the Elephants lose? Anyone remember Bob Dole?

Of course against Mr. Style over Sustenance Hussein Obama I don't think any Republican has a chance. Unless he asks Hillary to be his running mate (PLEASE LET HIM ASK HILLARY TO BE HIS RUNNING MATE!)

So what happens in 2009?

America Loses. We lose the War on Terror, of course thats a misnomer, but we will be attacked again. We lose our economy. We lose our freedoms and therin lies the rub. As a nation we don't care about liberty and freedom.

We care about... Healthcare? I think our founding fathers would be ashamed of us. And with good reason.

We don't want to be a nation of men, we want to be a nation of nannied children.

Welcome Nanny why don't you come stay for at least four years!

America was colonized by people fleeing Europe for freedom and economic potential. There's no where left to run.

My First Novel

Hey Everyone I'm writing a novel, mentioned it before but had the thought that I should link to it directly so I'm attaching a link here and including it in the favorites Section. I'm writing it on a forum called The High Road sister forum to Armed Polite Society. Both great websites for individual minded folks. Keep it polite we're family people.

It's called Bite Me: A Story of the End of the World.

It's a zombie survival story. There's some cussing (sorry mom but you know).

I'm writing it serially, so you'll be able to offer feedback while I write it. Of course several readers have complained I have slow fingers so...

Of course in order to give feedback you'll have to be a member of THR so ;) make a membership and after reading my story, you'll have to stick around and enjoy the other parts THR has to offer, of course if your friends with me I imagine you will!


My Cherub


I know that since the dawn of time and some people believe we were all just monkeys swinging through the trees, eating leaves and bananas and grinding out crazy monkey sex, people have asked "WHAT IS LOVE?!"

When I was a kid I thought I knew what love was. I knew my parents loved me. I was pretty sure god loved me. I thought if I was lucky some cousins and aunts and uncles and stuff might love me. Love was peachy. Love was a pile of cool crap on the floor under the big shiny tree Christmas morning and then having your parents tell you, "wait there's more!" and then getting to call family across the country and tell them you "MERRY CHRISTMAS!"

I didn't really understand much of love.

As I got older I knew love was that flitter flutter all over when you held a girls hand and she squeezed it back! :) And that flitter flutter was almost painful the first time you kissed said lass, I thought my neck would melt!

I didn't understand love at all!

When my dad died I thought I knew what love was, and I knew what it was like to lose it. I hurt because I knew he loved me and I loved him and now he was gone. Like hurt enough you'd put a .45 bullet into your brainpan to stop the hurt and smile while you did it because the bullet felt better by comparison because everything was over.

I hated love and didn't understand it at all.

When I got married I thought I knew what love was. I was learning.

When my first daughter was born I thought I knew what love was, I was getting there. The feelings that made me feel light headed holding her for the first time, but also slightly froggy in the throat. Warm all over. I was close.

With our second daughter it was just my wife, myself, her doctor and one nurse. In the moments between contractions my wife had never been more beautiful. And when she looked at me I got all weak kneed again.

But with the birth of our son I think I'm finally starting to get it! I think I'm almost there. Being able to hold my wife in a setting very similar to our daughters birth, quiet and calm. My mom and brother were there not even half an hour before but thought they had time to run an errand. Boy were they mad when I txt'd them a half hour later and told my mom we had a new baby boy. Sorry mom but I was so glad it was just the two of us with the professionals. The feeling was so beautiful. And when I handed my wife her healthy baby boy, cherubic cheeks glowing my wife just held our Liam and smiled.

Later that night we were able to bring our daughters in and they got to meet their brother. Watching my 5 year old Wynter hold her little brother and positively glow! That is love. The kind that gets caught at the back of your throat. That makes you feel a little woozy. I saw my daughters love for her brother and I know now I'm part of something special, and I love it, and I know it!

For No Reason Other Than I Love Her!

Cause and Effect

I’m worn out, feel beaten and I’m ready for a break. My wife is “heavy with child,” it’s out 3rd but as I’m sure you can imagine I’m not getting much sleep. Thankfully we’re inducing tomorrow morning. It’s wicked early but it’s going to be great to welcome little Liam into our family.

So I’m tired from all that. Additionally last night I watched America piss away the 2008 election.

I see Romney (the only guy running who knows how to run anything and thinks that a capitalistic free market is a good thing) dropping out in the next 6 weeks. I don’t like it but with as few delegates as he procured last night…

So where does that leave us? I hear people saying well we’ll make it big in ’12. But where does that leave us?

It leaves us with 3 conniving back stabbing bastards running for president (I’m convinced the shillary beast is a man faking it so…) so America it’s time, BOHICA! I just hope they bring lots of KY jelly.

What is your plan for 2009 and beyond?

I see a few things happening, I’m hoping that we get Hillary or McCain (I’ll explain why in a minute). I believe that McCain will fight the fight against Islamists until he gets bent by congress. Hillary will play it tough for political expediency until the UN tells her to chill. Obama, well Obama isn’t even playing big boy ball yet so… And his acknowledging that he’s completely taken the nuclear option off the table proves it. I’m not a sick bastard wanting to kill people, any potential president who takes any option off the table without being advised by the pentagon and the DOD is an idiot, welcome back Jimmy Carter. Don’t make me also reiterate his American Flag/Patriotism bullshit.

So 2009:

First if you’re a member (even a lifer) of the NRA, I don’t care, grab your checkbook and drop 20-50-100-150 WHATEVER YOU CAN AFFORD to them. Why? Because all it will take is a left leaning house/senate and we’ll have another gun ban on our table WITH ANY OF THESE PEOPLE!

I believe McCain politically would submit to Republican pressure but the Repubs we have in Washington are all girlie men. (SCHWARZENNEGER YOU BETRAYED US!) But without a strong defense by the NRA we’re screwed! The GOA is worthless and there is no other national org worth mentioning.

McCain will sign whatever comes his way. Due to his supposed Republican nature I believe congress will try and make any gun ban attempt as “easy” a pill as possible to swallow. Just an expansion of the 94 ban. I don’t see it being the current one in the house because of the inclusion of things like the Garand etc. Again we’ve got to control our congress critters and empower our mouthpiece.

With Hillary I see her easily signing an expansion of the 94 Ban plus. Probably take out the 50BMG, forget the 5.7 from FN. We also lose any of the BIG BOOMERs like the .416 or other monsters. Without a poison pill amendment attached like national CCW or something crazy she’ll sign it and lick her licks and go drink our constitutions blood afterwards.

Obama will sign ANYTHING that comes his way, what is worse is after any Littleton, Virgina Tech, Trolley Square or ANYTHING he won’t wait for congress he’ll write it himself. What makes him worse, is that he is willingly ON RECORD as saying we need to ban EVERYTHING in civilian hands. Handguns, Rifles, all shapes, sizes, calibers and worse.

So again where does that leave us?

That leaves us with 327 days to prepare. George on Madogre.com says that Ammo is our Achilles heel and he’s right. Every American should start stocking up. We also need to assess our current collections and see what we have, what we don’t have and work to clear up as much of the “WHAT WE NEED” as possible. In my safe I have hunting rifles, mil-surp from WW1/WW2. But I’m desperately short on Semi Auto rifles, which ironically would be the first banned. So my plan, I’m buying as many as I can afford, at least a half dozen mags each and as much ammo as my kids can pay off.

Will it do any good? I don’t know. I don’t have a magic ball. But I will say this, I believe that the constitution of our nation was inspired by god, i.e. GOD INSPIRED, God Given Rights.

So what is your only course of action when someone tries to “infringe” or legislate away a god given right?

America has Memory Loss

It wasn’t very long ago that the ideal in America was for a kid to get out of high school, maybe go to college, or go to work in the local industry or for his/her parents in the mom and pop store. Many went into the armed forces to serve this great nation. Others went to college studying engineering, physics, business and law. But America’s people have forgotten.

We’ve surrendered hard work and lasting success for entertainment with the “BOOB TUBE,” American Idol, Get Rich Quick, Law Suits, celebrity obsession, sex, satire, keeping up with the joneses. What the hell happened?

It’s not a party thing, both parties need a reboot. The modern Republican Party is like a drunken teddy Roosevelt crashed into a freeloader free spending appreciation program. The democrats have found true love in a neoworldsocialism. They’ve forgotten patriotism, and what it means to be an American. We are not proud of our country. The libertarians (and why I can’t stand them) is that they bitch and moan about how things SHOULD be (I agree) but then nationally they don’t DO anything! As in at all! They don’t organize or galvanize behind a candidate.

If the libertarian party would organize their 30% of America that they brag about to the polls and push a solid candidate and draw in independent thinkers from across the political spectrum, they won’t win the first election, but they’ll scare the holy shit out of the two other parties. By the second election, providing they have a worthwhile candidate they will win if the two “major” parties don’t fix themselves.

But that’s what’s wrong with our country. We’ve forgotten JFK. I’ve heard his most famous speech dozens of times, and USED by politics to prove a point, that they are more open minded than the other guy. But when was the last time you took the time to LISTEN, really listen to the words and what President Kennedy was trying to say?

I’ve included his speech below.

“Vice President Johnson, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Chief Justice, President Eisenhower, Vice President Nixon, President Truman, reverend clergy, fellow citizens, we observe today not a victory of party, but a celebration of freedom - symbolizing an end, as well as a beginning - signifying renewal, as well as change. For I have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forebears prescribed nearly a century and three quarters ago.

The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life. And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe - the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans - born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage - and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this Nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

This much we pledge - and more.

To those old allies whose cultural and spiritual origins we share, we pledge the loyalty of faithful friends. United, there is little we cannot do in a host of cooperative ventures. Divided, there is little we can do - for we dare not meet a powerful challenge at odds and split asunder.

To those new States whom we welcome to the ranks of the free, we pledge our word that one form of colonial control shall not have passed away merely to be replaced by a far more iron tyranny. We shall not always expect to find them supporting our view. But we shall always hope to find them strongly supporting their own freedom - and to remember that, in the past, those who foolishly sought power by riding the back of the tiger ended up inside.

To those peoples in the huts and villages across the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves, for whatever period is required - not because the Communists may be doing it, not because we seek their votes, but because it is right. If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.

To our sister republics south of our border, we offer a special pledge - to convert our good words into good deeds - in a new alliance for progress - to assist free men and free governments in casting off the chains of poverty. But this peaceful revolution of hope cannot become the prey of hostile powers. Let all our neighbours know that we shall join with them to oppose aggression or subversion anywhere in the Americas. And let every other power know that this Hemisphere intends to remain the master of its own house.


Finally, to those nations who would make themselves our adversary, we offer not a pledge but a request: that both sides begin anew the quest for peace, before the dark powers of destruction unleashed by science engulf all humanity in planned or accidental self-destruction.

We dare not tempt them with weakness. For only when our arms are sufficient beyond doubt can we be certain beyond doubt that they will never be employed.

But neither can two great and powerful groups of nations take comfort from our present course - both sides overburdened by the cost of modern weapons, both rightly alarmed by the steady spread of the deadly atom, yet both racing to alter that uncertain balance of terror that stays the hand of mankind's final war.

So let us begin anew - remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.

Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belabouring those problems which divide us.

Let both sides, for the first time, formulate serious and precise proposals for the inspection and control of arms - and bring the absolute power to destroy other nations under the absolute control of all nations.

Let both sides seek to invoke the wonders of science instead of its terrors. Together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths, and encourage the arts and commerce.

Let both sides unite to heed in all corners of the earth the command of Isaiah - to "undo the heavy burdens -. and to let the oppressed go free."

And if a beachhead of cooperation may push back the jungle of suspicion, let both sides join in creating a new endeavour, not a new balance of power, but a new world of law, where the strong are just and the weak secure and the peace preserved.

All this will not be finished in the first 100 days. Nor will it be finished in the first 1,000 days, nor in the life of this Administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin.

In your hands, my fellow citizens, more than in mine, will rest the final success or failure of our course. Since this country was founded, each generation of Americans has been summoned to give testimony to its national loyalty. The graves of young Americans who answered the call to service surround the globe.

Now the trumpet summons us again - not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need; not as a call to battle, though embattled we are - but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, "rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation" - a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself.

Can we forge against these enemies a grand and global alliance, North and South, East and West, that can assure a more fruitful life for all mankind? Will you join in that historic effort?

In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shank from this responsibility - I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavour will light our country and all who serve it -- and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.

And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country.

My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.

Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own.

Was his speech very idealogical? Was it naïve? Was it hopeful? Did he condemn his enemies?

Modern Americans blame America for our enemies hate.

Modern Americans as instead “WHAT CAN MY COUNTRY DO FOR ME?!”

In spite of it all, in spite of everything I am proud of my country and I wish the political parties would approach the adult maturity of our past presidents (except Carter). Let’s leave the bitter partisanship. But most of all, every candidate should seek to uphold the constitution. I don’t care if you are the local school board, UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION.

Freedom. Liberty. These are the greatest of the pursuits of men and government. Let individuals pursue god in their own way, but for government and those in rule, freedom and liberty above all.
