For my America and Freedom lovers and those who support the rule of law over “hope and change” Marxism, anarchy and political correctness mob rule.
I’m just dreaming….
Imagine for a moment with all of this hoopla going on all across the country; all this disloyal, treasonous, violent insanity going on..this fear mongering and media manipulation..
We the Americans who love our country, warts and all, just decided one day to walk to Washington, DC.
We carry our guns, just like our forefathers did at Lexington and Concord. And we bring our Bible, Torah, or Koran, our American flag too and any other patriotic memorabilia we can find and just march.
Armed you say? Well not to start anything at all, but instead to celebrate freedom and independence and put on notice the establishment, the socialists, the enemies inside and outside our country like the anarchists, and the violence seekers and let them know that we can show up too and be loud too and be rambunctious too but we won’t be violent.
Once we get there on the National Mall in Washington DC we could just sing the National Anthem, Lee Greenwood’s I’m Glad to be an American or something like that and then maybe kneel in prayer or silence for the fallen warriors who gave everything, all their tomorrows so we could do this, gather peacefully and be free to love and show our love for each other and America. Grateful that America exists in the world and we happen to be citizens of this great country.
Maybe someone could read the Declaration of Independence. We wouldn’t spew hatred or crybaby stuff..just honest to goodness patriotic fervor. Covid fear free of course… (Everyone dies people, it’s how you live that really matters)
Imagine millions marching and hundreds of thousands of armed people of all walks of life, all colors, and religious creeds just getting together on the Mall and the rest surrounding Washington in tents. . (can’t fit everyone cause there are just so many)..just imagine.
Just a long march across the country maybe from California to Washington where people join up along the way to celebrate America and provide a show of force that no nation on Earth would want to tangle with let alone some pip squeak pajama boys and wanna be Marxists.
Imagine millions of armed men and women marching peacefully. Singing maybe…
Do you know how intimidating that would be to the anti-Americans; all the gun grabbers; the Chinese, Iranians and North Koreans, let alone all of the race baiters and big government STATISTS? the wealthy elites?…
They would be apoplectic, afraid they pushed us finally too far towards civil war. Calls would go out for the the National Guard and the military to protect them..but they wouldn’t need protecting and besides .most of those men and women in uniform would want to join us. .lol
What would it prove?
That America loves freedom more than fake security and when necessary can organize. Americans would show the whole world we can answer the call in support of Freedom over Socialism. Over gun confiscation, over corrupt politicians. Peacefully. But what a statement that would make.
And then after celebrating we would go home and in November vote out the bums that caused all of this hoopla to begin with. No Civil War (sorry enemies) just an election, a peaceful election. Imagine that.
Imagine the powerful message that would send. Imagine how a united force like that marching, and what it would look and sound like.
We would show the world that We the People of America are tired of the divide and the unrest. And we are united enough. At least the people that love America are united.
It would demonstrate to the world, our enemies.the media who would be forced to cover it, (millions of people folks) and the political establishment.
It would be unbelievable and so incredibly, incredibly powerful.
Imagine a peaceful yet armed march of millions. Families men and women, with kids even, across the country..
The world would shake and yet no rounds would need fly at all at Concord or anywhere in this grand ole country.
Anyone watching tonight’s state of the union speech should be very aware by now they are seeing America in a nut shell: divided intractably by issues because both sides see the world very differently at all fundamental levels. You ask how could they not clap at some of the most seemingly non-partisan subjects. Well they see the world as different as some of our enemies do and some of them hate us just as much. They think differently. Perhaps that is fine for a country to have different viewpoints but fundamental differences on basics is at issue. How we survive in the future is at stake.
Don’t get mad at our Congress representatives and their behavior. Nancy tearing up the speech in a childish act of defiance changes nobody’s mind about anything. They are only doing what their constituents want and reflect the situation in miniature. The problem isn’t Congress.
We all are the problem. Not enough of us vote. Not enough understand the issues, the history or the existing laws. Not enough care. That is sad.
Want to fix it? Fix yourself first, go learn about what’s important to you and your loved ones foremost then work on your family, and neighbors changing their minds so when it comes time to vote they change. It’s the only way it’s going to get better.
An engaged, informed society is a better society. Something I think we all should want.
“If you want to be happy, do not dwell in the past, do not worry about the future, focus on living fully in the present.”
My wife and I were talking about just how divided our country has become on many issues especially after the recent election. I told her I think we are all seeing and hearing the byproduct of communication being perfected. For the first time in human history we are really able to see and hear what people are thinking in real time. It’s alarming and shocking to now know what your friends and family truly believe in and just how different and varied their opinions are from yours and the world. It’s as though we have been eating from the forbidden fruit of knowledge since the internet came along and the veil has been slowly lifting from our eyes to the point we can now see each other’s opinions in print, videos, movies, photos, and memes in real time and know what our brother-in-law is really thinking and feeling on any number of subjects. We are able to know what’s going on around the world now in an instant; and are being daily bombarded with opinions about it. We are beginning to know all of it; the good, the bad, the ugly, and the issues that truly divide us as a community, a nation and a society.
More of us each day around the world are using the internet more and more for work, play and education. We are willing and feel more comfortable sharing everything about our intimate selves from something as benign as what our favorite color is to sharing the results of personality and emotional intelligence quizzes, our political preferences, sexual preferences and habits, pictures and videos of ourselves, even our present state of mind and health. We communicate now so candidly that people feel no aversion to talking about their colonoscopy or hysterectomy results with their friends on their cell phone while sitting in a restaurant or in a bathroom stall in ear shot of total strangers. People say it’s no big deal. However is there a point where blunt honesty, candidness and truth stop being a good thing? In short, most everything that was purposely hidden or withheld by us in years past is slowing being shared and revealed in the public domain and sadly the prying eyes of government. We hear, think and feel instantly what others hear, think and feel by way of modern communication.
My personal feeling is the divisions that we read about today between us all have always existed but we as a society had not reached a point where we felt comfortable sharing what we truly believed out of fear of what others might think of us or out of necessity to keep the peace around the holiday dinner table. The old adage around the holidays was “we don’t talk about religion or politics or we risk arguments”. However now as a society we have become empowered to voice our thoughts, beliefs and opinions like never before. We readily share our true intimate-selves via the Internet where in years past we could not or would not feel comfortable. In years past we might have arguments about issues or people with our friends, neighbors, or relatives but we never really shared too much out of fear of alienation and future arguments. The peace was kept by not talking about politics and religion or any controversial subject. Today that is unavoidable. The internet and social media has enabled us to reveal our deeper selves without direct confrontation. It has opened the lines of communication but with it revealed the deep divisions, biases, and flaws in our characters.
The question then becomes were we better off learning of our differences slowly over time while simultaneously learning to work out those differences, or is knowing everything there is to know and recognizing readily just how different we are a good thing? It remains to be seen.
For now I will share a piece of advice, agree to disagree with your friends, relatives and neighbors at the holiday dinner table.
The bible has this to say about it, “Better is a dry morsel with quietness, than a house full of feasting with strife.” Proverbs 17:1
Last night once again I watched the movie “The Patriot” starring Mel Gibson. It’s one of my favorites. I’m not a movie critic so I will not debate the historical accuracies or inaccuracies of the film. The character Gibson plays Benjamin Martin is loosely based upon the lives of some very real Americans like Francis Marion known as the Swamp Fox who fought a guerrilla war against the British in South Carolina and is regarded as one of the heroes of the American Revolution.
Say what you want about Mel Gibson the actor, he might have issues with alcohol and bigotry but the characters he plays in his movies are emotionally visceral, and stir the passions of most audiences. That’s something a good movie should do in my opinion. When I first watched this movie back in 2000, when it came out, it provoked an interest for me in a…

Imagine if someone you don’t know breaks inside your home uninvited and brings with them friends or takes a liking to your daughters. This stranger begins to eat your food, have sex on your couch and gets their friend pregnant or your daughters. This intruder sleeps in your spare bedroom, refuses to work, but if they do they send their tax free money to their homeland. They pretend their one of your family and when they get sick you have to pay for it.
Then after you’ve had enough and you finally call them out on this home invasion they act as if they are entitled to live under your roof and protection, and demand you speak to them in their native language. To make matters worse your dumb retarded brother-in-law thinks they should stay and believes they have the same rights as invited guests.
Yeah illegal immigration is just like this in America today. You wouldn’t put up with it in your house why should America as a nation!
Clinton is as corrupt as they come. The overwhelmingly damning information coming from Wikileaks and the FBI’s agents proves this and could not be any clearer. She will do anything to gain power and the masses who support her are every bit as corrupted in my mind.
Your neighbors, teachers, pastors, relatives, and friends and others who you have trusted for years are going to support a lying degenerate who has a PhD in BS, Graft and Corruption. What’s that say about them? What’s that say about you who associate with them?
There are two America’s within our borders and one of them is trying desperately to destroy the old culture and laws and replace it with their false god Leviathan. I am referring to the over oppressive Administrative State. Think about that the next time you see a I voted for Hillary sticker. We are a divided nation and will continue to be one until we are no longer a nation. No amount of cooperation and compromise will change the very different ideological thinking that exists today. It will only get worse. You cannot make peace with someone who seeks your destruction.
- If you are a person of faith count on being unmercifully persecuted because they hate you. Their god is Man.
- If you are a person of truth. They will ridicule you because truth is relative in their minds.
- If you are a person of laws they will shame you because they believe law to be ever changing and not immutable and always open to interpretation.
- If you accept responsibility for your own actions and your safety they will say you are kooky or a nut because they are weak minded, irresponsible and always seek others to provide for them. They seek others to take the blame when things go bad, and to protect them from every threat real and imagined.
- If you love liberty and the US Constitution they will despise you as they reject God and thus the natural rights of man bestowed upon us by him and referred to in our founding documents. Ironically the very rights defined in the document for which their own rhetoric is protected.
In short we are at the present time in a Cold War with ourselves that will turn hot if only a few things more take place.
The apathetic, ignorant or foolish will reject this but I think it is time to pray hard for peace and understanding, but prepare for war as I think its coming. These two forces cannot co-exist indefinitely. The enemy is in the room with us now not outside our door. We only need to pay attention to the trend towards government control of everything and the patterns of corruption from our leaders and ignorance of the followers to realize it.
I said it earlier today that I thought the federal government had reached the point where it has perfected the Charlie Foxtrot (Cluster Fu@k) to an exact science! I was responding to the sad state of affairs for people’s health care costs which have skyrocketed for many families thanks to the well meaning but terribly bad Affordable Care Act otherwise known as Obamacare. It should have been called the Unaffordable Care Act but this is just what we can come to expect if Hillary is elected.
These hopeful progressive ideas that Dems continue to promote year after year, decade after decade that say if we only tax the rich a little more; grow government a little more; and control people and property more efficiently, the world would be a better place free of want, hunger, greed, poverty, etc. etc.. is so much rubbish. It’s so far from how things work and how humans really behave that it really belongs in Science Fiction (ie Star Trek) and not politics.
In practice these policies like national healthcare and laws they push year after year have never worked efficiently if at all, and in most cases just cause more complicated problems in the present and for the future. However they all make for good sound bites to the masses of people who want to have someone fix all their personal problems for them. If it gets them reelected and allow them to remain in power who cares if they work. These phony hucksters like Clinton continue to appeal so long as people believe in the effectiveness of fairytale programs and blatant lies.
Wake up America and smell reality for a change! You are about to elect a decades long cheat and grifter. A woman who for years enriched her own purse through the public offices her and her husband held and were trusted to protect. No politician should get rich working in government. The Clintons are the poster kids for this type of infamy. Hillary Clinton is criminally negligent and dangerously reckless with national security matters. She is a habitual liar and I believe a narcissist in love with her public image. She wants you to look the other way while she steals this election as well as the White House china.
They were people were just like you and me. They got up each day and lived their lives as Americans. They went to the same schools, churches, grocery stories and ate at the same restaurants. They smiled and laughed at our jokes. They listened to the same music and watched the same movies we did. They comforted us when we were sad and we looked up to them and admired them. They sat across from us at our dinner tables and living rooms and shared with us their hopes, dreams, secrets and aspirations. We loved them and the world was a little brighter because of them. They were our ancestors, our grandfathers, our parents, our siblings, our children, cousins, or maybe just our best friend. They are now gone. They are all missed.
For the families of lost service men and women nothing can replace the heavy loss felt and the empty chair at the table. These brave few served each other, and their country paying with their lives. Some had no choice and were drafted into their country’s service; some willingly answered the call, but each ended up serving something far greater.
It has been said that only the dead have seen the end of war. The world as it is still requires vigilance against tyranny and evil and some men and women still end up paying the ultimate price to keep the peace, and preserve the nation. The good book tells us that “Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” It is good and right then they we have a national holiday to remember them.
Memorial Day is not about the political correctness of the conflicts with which these men and women lost their lives; history is the final judge of that. Today on this day we put aside our correctness; our righteous indignation and protests against war and all its causes. Today we just celebrate our loved ones and their tragic, final sacrifices made… and remember them with heartfelt gratitude.
