Memorial Day

Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day, a day that I regularly struggle with. There are three main reasons for this:

1. A great number of people forget (or don’t even know) the actual meaning of Memorial Day.

2. It has been commercialized to an extent that is beyond my tolerance. This is true of most holidays anymore but I have a bit of an issue with people using a day set aside to remember those who have given their lives for us to sell mattresses or cars.

3. During my combat tours in Iraq, we lost too many good men. I am still haunted by some of my experiences and days like today can be difficult. All the lives that were lost are a tragedy but I especially honor the men who I served with in the 1st Squadron, 32nd Cavalry who gave their lives for our country:

Things To Not Prepare For In America

Things To Not Prepare For In America

When it comes to survival and preparedness, we always talk about the different things to prepare for and how to prepare for them. Not today! I thought it might be interesting to examine some of the things that you likely won’t ever need to prepare for.

America

Here is my list of things that you’ll never need to prepare for in America:

  1. Free Assault Rifles Guns of Any Type – There is a loud enough segment of the country that unless something were to radically change, we will never have to worry about an entire country that believes in the right to bear arms. Of course, that also would require that people believe in the Constitution!
  1. A Debt-Free America – This just isn’t going to happen. We have a government that likes to spend money too much. If only the money we were borrowing was at least staying in the country…
  1. Unbiased Politicians – They all have an agenda. Plain and simple. It is the, what can I do to get re-elected or if I don’t, make at least as much money from my connections mentality that seems to rule Washington.
  1. Positive Changes to the Welfare System – We need a welfare system that requires beneficiaries to contribute labor or volunteer hours to the best of their abilities. Say what!?!? It might be a pipe dream but I believe that we all have something to contribute and just as I have to work for my pay, so should everyone else. Of course there is always the understanding that there will be some that have to be taken care of…but then again if everyone makes an effort, we can take care of one another.

FYI – I am not entitled to, nor do I get, more than someone else…even if I am a Caucasian male. I work for what I have and so can anyone else. If a person is not capable of working to support him or herself, then it is the responsibility of all of us to take care of them.

2Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. 3If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important. 

Galatians 6:2-3

  1. Term Limits – I am pretty sure that giving politicians the option to make their public “service” a high profile and fiscally rewarding career results in a system where several career politicians turn into what would equate to criminal status…assuming that they were held to the same standards that us peasant folk are. Term limits could potentially curb this issue. We have a term limit for the president, why shouldn’t the same rules apply for everyone?
  1. Fair and Equal Representation – The restoration of public servants that represent the actual interests of the people who are accused of voting them into office would be great. I am not holding my breath.
  1. Equal Pay for Equal Work – I am not talking about women earning the same amount of money as men. People should be paid for results, not gender. This goes both ways. What I am talking about is that there is no need to pay our selected elected representatives for a full year to only show up to work in D.C. for a few months out of the entire year.
  1. Unbiased Media – Just like politicians, the media has an agenda and they all lean one way or the other. I am not saying that I don’t have my own belief system; I just don’t believe the media should be imparting theirs on me.
  1. A Secure Border – I have this crazy idea that if our nation’s military was not being watered down while simultaneously strewn about the world, we could actually secure the homeland. Currently, there are no plans that I have heard of to actually do this. I am sure that continuing to entice illegal immigrants with idea of amnesty is really slowing down the rates at which people are jumping across the border (between the actual border crossings of course).
  1. Respect – A society where people respect each other and decisions are made about people based on their character, talents, aptitude, and ethics would be a welcome change.
  1. Employment Based on Ability – It would be really great if there were employers who realize that just because I sat in class long enough to get a piece of paper, does not mean that I am the best person for the job. In the current setting, the associate’s degree of yesterday is the master’s degree of today. If things continue at this rate, a McDonald’s manager will need to have a doctorate.
  1. Objective Laws – When it comes to making policy, passing laws, and implementation of regulations, it seems like it would increase the chances of the sudden onset of everyone getting along if we all didn’t think that the deck was stacked against us.
  1. Generational Betterment – A generation that is all around better than the one that came before it. With each new generation, things continue to decline. The morals, values, ethics, beliefs, and pretty much everything that we once held dear continue to vaporize with every new birth.
  1. Homeland Security w/o the DHS – We should have a military that can actually stay home and protect our own country instead of someone else’s. I did mention this before but I feel that it is worth saying again.
  1. Tax Spending the Public Approves – A system that doesn’t use my tax dollars to fund ridiculous projects that only a very select group of people actually have an interest in. If so few people are interested in these projects then how is it that they get approved you ask? When one politician gets what they want in exchange for giving another politician what they want, pet projects get approved. This is how we end up with almost $400K of our tax dollars funding a study about how ducks continue to adapt to facilitate forced copulation (formerly called duck rape). Don’t believe me? Look it up. The study was titled, “Sexual Conflict, Social Behavior and the Evolution of Waterfowl Genitalia” and was led by Patricia Brenner, an assistant biology professor at Yale. God forbid we wasted the same money on preventing the rape of humans. It makes me shudder just thinking about it!
  1. Actually Eating the Food We Grow – Would anybody be willing to say I was wrong if we used the corn we grow in America to eat instead of dilute our fuel? It might actually contribute to the reduction of the amount of people who go hungry every day.
  1. Acceptance of Personal Defense – There is always someone who thinks that the right to defend my family, or myself, against attackers is wrong. Don’t even bring up the fact that many of these same people think that I should have to be concerned with being sued by the people, or their family, who committed an invasive crime against us.
  1. The Absolute Right to Travel Freely – I am not asking for there to be no laws to regulate the way that people drive. I am talking about the right to travel without having to worry about having my bags searched and my body groped. I get anxiety just thinking about what I will have to go through if I actually am forced to fly somewhere.
  1. Getting Rid of Animal Abuse Ads – It would be great if those animal abuse ads with the celebrities in them would just go away. I am against animal abuse also! I just don’t think that people should be speaking out against animal abuse when some of these same people think that it is ok to kill unborn children.
  1. Teachers That Teach Subjects, Not Tests – In an ideal world, teachers in our education system would prepare their students for life long learning. Isn’t this more beneficial than teachers that only prepare their students for the end of the year standardized testing?
  1. Support for Law Enforcement – I will be the first to say that I don’t care for all of the laws in America and I am even less fond of the way that some law enforcement officers go about their duties. With that said, we need to accept the fact that in more cases than not, our police officers are just doing their job and are not taking race, or any other discriminating factor, into consideration when carrying out their defending themselves against imminent threat.
  1. Reasonable Compensation for Public Servants – Is it right that a professional athlete that doesn’t even play in the game and just sits on the bench gets paid more for one season that only lasts for part of the year than a fireman that works all year? A police officer should not have to take on additional work on his days off to support his family. We SHOULD advocate for better treatment and compensation for our civil servants who put their lives on the line every day for us instead of supporting multi-million dollar salaries for the gang bangers in the NFL.
  1. Common Sense Environmental Policy – Not every person that ever cut down a tree wanted to clear-cut the forest. And just like we should not allow clear cutting, we should not just let the forests overgrow. We need to understand that thinning our forests is not as detrimental to the environment as letting them grow so thick that when there are fires, they burn completely to the ground. There has to be balance; not just with the trees but with the environment as a whole.
  1. Redesign of Social Programs – We should redesign “social programs” (welfare) so they don’t reward irresponsible humans for having more children to get more money. The military used to pay service members based on how many children they have but realized this was a mistake, so they stopped. Why can’t we do that with welfare? It is not like anyone is working for the money.
  1. Guns Don’t Kill People – It would be great if there were an awakening that embraces the point that guns do not kill people, people use guns to kill other people. Oh yeah, advertising with a sign that no one in the immediate area has any sort of weapon does not make that place safer. Criminals tend to take notice of such signs and select those places as targets.
  1. Made in America – Let’s promote things made here! What if the government got on board too? If we want the economy to get better, we need to keep our money within our borders. How does sending all of our money to China help us?
  1. Support Our Troops – I would like to see politicians and/or hippies that will just support the military instead of questioning what is happening 7,000 miles away. This is especially applicable when they have not served in the military during combat themselves. The saying, “If you can’t stand behind our troops, feel free to stand in front of them” definitely applies here.
  1. Privacy and Personal Liberty – We don’t have a government that respects the privacy and personal liberty of its citizens and that is not going to change. It seems like America is about 20 years behind our European friends. If you look at what kind of domestic spying is going on in Europe right now, you know what to expect in a few years in the United States.
  1. Stopping Moral Decay – We are experiencing worsening moral decay in America on an epic scale. Just like tooth decay, once moral decay happens, there is no way to take it back. If we don’t stop the slide now, I truly fear what may come in the future.
  1. Shrinking Federal Government – These United States are designed by our founders to be governed as states and not as one big state. Our federal government is too big and reaches too far. Something should actually be done to reduce the government to a reasonable size. And not by firing half of the military! One place to start might be the number of slaves aides that our politicians have at their beck and call.

Gone But Not Forgotten…

Today is Memorial Day. It is not a surprise to many people. Everyone knows that it is some sort of holiday that resulted in a day off from school, work, etc. Most will capitalize on the opportunity to go hit the lake, swim, and grill out. There is nothing wrong with that but there is more to today than just having a good time with friends and family. Please make sure to honor those who answered the call from our country and made the ultimate sacrifice. Their families are forced to move on without them, without the chance to even have one last BBQ. There are literally tens of thousands of men and women over the years who never made it home. They are gone but not forgotten.

I especially honor the men who I served with that gave their lives in Iraq:

Political Correctness Must Prevail!

A friend of mine sent this to me and I thought it was worth passing along…

Recently, the owner of the Washington Redskins has come under attack for the racially insensitive name of his team. Political correctness mandates that I agree with our offended Native American population, and that the name, and well as awe-inspiring team logo, which honors Indians as incredible warriors, is nevertheless offensive to the delicate nature of the formerly hardy, self-sufficient Indians (who now, after years of government “nannying” would be afraid to even see a picture of a buffalo!) Thus, in the keeping with the politically correct dictates of our speech and thought police, I would like to humbly suggest we change the names of the following sports teams:

To begin with, the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians should be first out the door. If “Redskins” is offensive to those with red skin, certainly the Cleveland Browns would offend a number of racial groups; and worse, it will also offend many white people who spend too much time at the beach this summer. It is for the public good that all these names must be eliminated.


Carolina Panthers? There could be some concern that this evokes the memory of militant Blacks from the 60’s, but thankfully, we needn’t worry about sensitivities of white people. That name can stay.

The New York Yankees certainly offend the Southern population. What team do you see named for the Confederacy? Any teams from Florida or Georgia named the “Robert E. Lees” or the Bull Runs? The Civil War was tragic, costing millions of young lives and leaving the south devastated. “Yankees” is an insult to any one living south of the Mason-Dixon line, and we simply cannot allow a team name that thumbs its nose at millions of sensitive southerners, who had nothing to do with that war.  It is time to put the past in the past. The Yankees need to walk a mile in the moccasins of all the other sports monikers, and – like the Redskins – take a hike off the nearest buffalo jump.

The delicate minds of atheists are clearly insulted by names like the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres. Cultural sensitivity, as well as the new official religion of the U.S., humanism, demands that we rename them the New Orleans Agnostics, the Los Angeles Humanists and – in a nod to cross-sport equality and the unfair state of under-represented women in the NFL –  the San Diego Feminists.

The Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Pirates? To protect our children, these teams, which are named after groups which raped, pillaged and – horrors! – used muskets, must be banned, and all references to them scrubbed from any historical records. The newly formed Dept. of Homeland Language Police should be empowered to scour all public and private communications to root out any reference to these names.

The San Diego Chargers are particularly dangerous, in that they clearly promote the frivolous use of Visa, MasterCard and Discover cards. It is vital that our children be protected from running up credit card debt, in order that they can instead run up student debt later, amounting to tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars. Otherwise, how would our leftist university profs get to retire at 50, while taking summers off and bi-yearly sabbaticals?

The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants are too closely tied to the rampant epidemic of childhood obesity, and should be changed. A more fitting name, I humbly suggest, is the San Francisco Rainbows and the New York Madoffs. In keeping with the Madoff motif, the Jets should be renamed the Ponzis. And what about the Chicago White Sox? This name is dangerously close to implying only white people wear sox, but could also be interpreted as offensive to us who don’t do laundry very often. Though perhaps a bit wordy, my suggestion is to rename them “The Sox Got Lost in the Dryer” – although that could offend Maytag repairmen.

Meanwhile, hockey teams have a slew of offensive names. Here are a few:

Pittsburgh Penguins – Penguins are already under threat due to global warming. We need to can the name, and replace it with something that  addresses the issue in a positive, politically correct manner, such as the Pittsburgh Gores (double entendre intentional).

Chicago Blackhawks – another offensive Indian name. I suggest the Chicago Corruptocrats.

St Louis Blues – anyone who has experienced a clinical depression should be outraged at this name. That is, if they could actually find the energy to get out of bed and write an outraged letter.

Columbus Blue Jackets – see issue with offensiveness to southerners. Perhaps since Columbus is so close to the Mason-Dixon line, we could make the simple name change of the Columbus Bluegray Jackets.

LA Kings – we fought a war to get rid of King George. I am outraged that we bring the name back. Obviously this is a covert attempt to reinstate the monarchy. Same with the KC Royals in baseball.

NJ Devils – too satanic, along with the Orlando Magic and Washington Wizards in basketball. The names are also an utter outrage to materialists.

Buffalo Sabres – this name clearly might incite school violence. If a kid can get expelled for biting a pop tart into the shape of a gun, or a 6 year old girl get thrown out of school for bringing a pink bubble gun to class, this name has to go, too. We can’t police our kids enough to make sure they are exposed to anything dangerous (Monsanto approved GMO food excepted).

Minnesota Wild: Wrong message to our vulnerable youth. Most principals I have polled chose the Minnesota Milquetoasts.

More names leftists want banned: Nashville Predators: Too close to being the Nashville Sexual Predators. Another name that simply has to go. Calgary Flames –could incite arson. We cannot take that risk. And the Carolina Hurricanes – haven’t we suffered enough with hurricanes Katrina and Sandy?  I propose the Carolina “Beach Weathers.”

In basketball, the Utah Jazz offends all us classical music lovers, while the Pacers are in insult to those in wheelchairs. Minnesota Timberwolves? The name makes light of a threatened species. The Celtics insult all the Irish,  and for all those that can’t swim, the LA Lakers are an incredibly insensitive insult. The San Antonio Spurs encourage violence against innocent horses, and I cannot think of the Houston Rockets without severe psychological duress, remembering the space shuttle.

On the upside, if we get rid of these all those baseball teams noted above, the Cubs just might have a chance. OK… maybe they still won’t. But it’s worth a shot.  And thankfully, for basketballs’s Milwaukee Bucks,  while the name is fine, they are just an insult to good basketball and their play is offensive. Dump  ‘em and move the team into a  local high school girls softball, slo-pitch team.

My suggestion: Let’s utilize some politically correct names that would really strike fear into the hearts of opponents, such as:

The Chicago Obama Drones

The LA Dioxins

The Seattle Sea Level Risers

The New York Anthropogenic Global Warmers

The California PCBs

The Boston Glyphosates (active ingredient in Roundup)

The Philadelphia Kermit Gosnells (or perhaps the Philly Abortionists?)

The Chicago Cubs? Since they are never competitive anyway, why not rename them the Chicago Socialists?

St. Louis hockey? Keeping with the color theme, change their name from the Blues to the Red Dye #2s.

And finally, in basketball, how about the Miami Agent Oranges – nice double entendre for any high school kid who actually is able to read after going through years of the Common Core curriculum.

Distant Hoofbeats: Western Refusniks & the End of Fascism

The following is a guest contribution from J.R. I will admit, his chosen vocabulary is beyond my everyday comprehension and I needed to look up a few word definitions, but the theory is sound; we will not ever achieve self-sufficiency or survive our chosen way of life as long as there are those who think they need to decide what is best for us, instead of allowing us the freedoms endowed to us by God.

Distant Hoofbeats: Western Refusniks and the End of Fascism

Scarely a day goes by, in which you and I don’t read about some outrage by the leftist police state against the Constitution and our basic human freedoms, as understood going as far back as the Magna Carta. The days seem very black – and indeed, they are very black. Fascism – the term here not used as a slur, but as defined by both Mussolini, as well as Webster’s Dictionary, denoting the merger of the socialist state and large, co-opted organizations – runs rampant uber alles. Profits are privatized for connected cronies, and losses are assigned to the shrinking middle class.

Is there any hope?

In a word, yes… possibly. There just may be some hoofbeats sounding in the distance that will draw nearerer and nearer – if we continue to do our part locally – what duties are right here in front of us, today, here and now. The media gatekeepers, of course, will utter nary a peep about these distant hoofbeats, so don’t look for reports of this in the “lamestream” media. In fact, this very sound portends their demise as well, so perforce they will suppress this gathering maelstrom against them at all costs. Nevertheless, as the servant of the biblical prophet Elijah reported back to him during similarly bleak times in ancient Israel as he battled evil there, there is indeed – if you look closely enough – a cloud in the distance. It is today, as it was then, as small as a man’s hand – but it is growing.

I am not saying you will agree with each of these people I cite below. I am saying that there is a growing discontent and blowback, from people across the spectrum against the controllers – and most tellingly, there are many refusniks (this term is from the Soviet era, regarding people who decided to not go along with the Soviet charade) out of the group of people formerly either siding with the controllers, or who actually were numbered amongst the controllers,  and who have now changed sides.

Anyone who can fog a mirror is aware of Eric Snowden (yes, you are correct – perhaps a third of Americans walking the streets may not be able to actually pass that test, but you get my point). And here is the question that has the controllers – just like their Soviet forebears – quaking in their boots: Who is next, and how can they ultimately stop people from defecting?

Let me provide a small sample of those riders in the distance, even if the troop has not emerged out of the blue horizon just yet:

Karen Hudes: Former counsel to the World Bank, Hudes now claims the US government has been co-opted by a global corporatists (and please note, I am drawing a very definite division between fascist corportism and its complete opposite, classic capitalism as envisaged by Adam Smith, Ludwig von Mises and others). See this summary account of Hudes’ “global conspiracy” or even better, go to YouTube and search for “Karen Hudes whistleblower.”  Listen to her speak for herself.

Sharyl Attkisson: Ms. Attkisson, was formally an award winning journalist on CBS, aka the “Constantly Barack Show.” Unfortunately, she had the temerity to follow the facts where they led, relative to the Benghazi cover up. After multiple insults to her professional standing – including having her computer hacked, Attkisson left or was pushed out. A few accounts include this one by CBS and this YouTube video, The Ulsterman Report also has a fine summary of the issue. Or do your own research, by simply googling her name. In fact, Bob Woodward, who uncovered Watergate, is also comparing the Benghazi story Atkissson was following to – well… Watergate. Here he is in his own words on the topic.

John Perkins: Perkins wrote Confessions of an Economic Hit Man and is yet another refusnik who once came from the upper echelons of the moneyed controllers, but deserted the ranks. Here he is in just one of his interviews. There is debate surrounding Perkins’ bona fides, so if you wish, throw out his testimony and move on to others here whose credentials are clearly impeccable.

Julian Assange and Bradley Manning: No, I don’t agree with them in many respects either, and there are instances where national security needs to be protected. However, the point is that from across the spectrum, people are opting for greater transparency and democratic control, not control of the hoi polloi by the self – proclaimed elite – and that is a good thing.

William Binney: Binney was a senior NSA manager turned whistleblower, and he – along with Russell Tice below – is one of the most important refusniks outlined in this article. Simply go to YouTube and search for his name – there are many, many interviews with this important man, exposing how the Constitution – the one human document that has arguably brought more human felicity and prosperity than any other document penned in history – has been co-opted and shredded. Binney was the person who actually created a good portion of the NSA infrastructure – and yet he had second thoughts, and is now a committed foe against unconstitutional over-reach.

Russell Tice: Tice is another senior member whistle blower from the NSA, who likes the Constitution over the police state. He notes that the NSA was spying on Colin Powell when he was leading our military, senior leadership in Congress, the Supreme Court, generals and admirals, and many more.

Nomi Prins: Ex-Goldman Sachs managing direct Nomi Prins who also worked for Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers and Chase Manhattan Bank, has also defected. Prins, who wrote All the Presidents’ Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power speaks with Greg Hunter hereAnd of all those banker “suicides” of the past few months, how many were actually murders? That is, murders of other people who were having second thoughts 

Pippa Malmgren: Dr. Pippa Malmgren, former White House official who was Special Assistant to the President of the United States for Economic Policy and a former member of the U.S. President’s Working Group on Financial Markets, also known as the Plunge Protection Team; formerly headed the Global Asset Management business for Bankers Trust in Asia, out of Hong Kong, and was also Chief Currency Strategist for Bankers Trust Company, and former Head of Global Investment Strategy at UBS. Dr. Malmgren was also a senior consultant to Deutsche Bank, and currently advises the largest sovereign wealth funds, hedge funds, and pension funds in the world. While not defecting to the other side in full, at least in her interview with King World News she certainly appears to have issues with the “powers that be.”

A few other refusniks including singer Tina Turner, Facebook founder Eduardo Saverin, filmmaker Terry Gilliam and songwriter-socialite Denise Rich, all of whom have renounced their U.S. citizenship in the past few years. Personal Liberty.com shows they are just part of a growing cadre that are voting to leave the Orwellian Workers’ Paradise with their feet.

In fact, Americans are leaving the country at record speed and the annual rate of expatriation is growing as over 150,000 Americans departed the former land of liberty for greener pastures overseas in the past year of 2013. There are now over five million Americans who are choosing to live outside the United States.

Daily Reckoning’s new investment director, Paul Mampilly, who formerly managed a $23 billion mutual fund, is also a perfect exemplar who has defected from the side of fascism. Peter Coyne quotes him as saying, “I could be making 5-10 times what I’m making right now. But do you want to know why I left Wall Street? Because back in 2008, nobody was making any money. Except, of course, for the guys on the Street. Outside, people were losing their jobs… their homes… their savings. No one on the inside seemed to have a problem with it. I simply did not think it was fair or right.” Mampilly is clear evidence of English philosopher/theologian Os Guiness’ dictum that while all philosophies might be arguable, not all are livable. And it is this dictum that is the death knell over the controllers fascist state.

One more interesting refusnik for your consideration. Rosa Koire, a Democrat and lesbian from San Francisco, is the founder of www.democratsagainstunagenda21.com . Yes really! Here she is speaking out against one of the primary vehicles by which the controllers wish to gain their hegemony over us poor, unwashed masses, by agency of the horrific neo-communist Agenda 21. When a Democrat lesbian from San Francisco  abandons the Orwellian nanny state ship, there is indeed something afoot.

The above is just a mere smattering of a few who have jumped ship. My goal in this article is not to be comprehensive, but rather just provide a small sampling for your reference. There are many roads leading to the abandonment of the Cult of the Brobdignagian State, but what is encouraging, is that these roads are becoming more and more crowded with those exiting… and I believe that, if one observes very closely, you can not only hear hoof beats from distant horses, but if I’m not mistaken, you can actually see the dust rising from their galloping towards you.

The reality is that, while man is imperfect, we have also all been furnished with an internal compass that cannot be violated, unless we wish to erode the very thing that makes us human. As early as Cain and Abel, Cain could not but help hearing the very blood of his brother whom he slew calling out from the ground against him. There are others today hearing that voice. Let’s do what we can to amplify expression.
