the Moral is...

Ummmm... didja hear about...
The Woman Marine Pilot?

The teacher gave her fifth grade class an assignment: Get their parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it. The next day, the kids came back and, one by one, began to tell their stories.
There were all the regular types of stuff: spilled milk and pennies saved. Then it was Janie's turn.
“Janie, do you have a story to share?'
''Yes ma'am. My daddy told me a story about my Mommy. She was a Marine pilot in Desert Storm, and her plane got hit. She had to bail out over enemy territory, all she had was a flask of whiskey, a pistol, and a survival knife.
She drank the whiskey on the way down so the bottle wouldn't break, and then her parachute landed her right in the middle of 20 Iraqi troops.
She shot 15 of them with the pistol (that's a big clip!), until she ran out of bullets, killed four more with the knife, till the blade broke, and then she killed the last Iraqi with her bare hands.
''Good Heavens,' said the horrified teacher. 'What did your Daddy tell you was the moral to this horrible story?
"Stay away from Mommy when she's been drinking."

Thus endeth today's sermon...
Bless God, God bless.

Spirit of '76, Part Two: Commentary

"When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them to another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."
234 years in the making, Patriots from every part of the United States of America gathered in hundreds of rallies to do more than make a statement of remembrance for what our ancestors did.
We re-lived their actions.
The expression is, "History repeats itself."
And that is what happened yesterday. History repeated itself. The original Tea Party was a protest of a burdensome, undesired and undeserved tax imposed by a tyrannical king unwilling to listen to the voice of his subjects.
In Duluth alone more than a thousand gathered to protest the unjust laws being enacted by an uncaring and not-listening gang of representatives. Nation wide there were an estimated 5 million or more.
As did King George those many years ago, King Hussein Obama chose to not listen to the voices of the People.
"Obama skips out on boisterous rally" reads the WaPo headline... but we know better. He didn't 'skip'. Like the coward he is, he ran out of town on the pretext of chatting with NASA 'employees'- none of whom were present at the fund-raiser dinner.
"...Among the thousands of "tea party" protesters that gathered Thursday at Freedom Plaza, a stone's throw from the White House, were dozens of signs directed at President Obama, some demanding "Listen To Me!" others asking "Why Can't You Hear Us?"..."

We know why he couldn't hear us. Our desires do not fit his agenda of creating a nation of servants to his whim.
Now we will see if anyone else listens. Should the PTB in D.C. choose not to...
History repeats itself.
There are detractors of the new Tea Parties. A media that denigrates and marginalizes the people. Tories, subservient and boot-licking to the king, threaten and disrupt the rallies. Politicians in a government who turn deaf ears to the real needs of their employers, treat them like field hands, and worse- ignore them.
Only a fool or someone totally blind and ignorant of what Life is about would choose to allow the history of this nation of Freedom, Peace loving citizens to repeat itself.
"Good morning, Lord. Thank You for giving me one more day to get it right. Today is Friday, April 16, 1776..."
And a shock went through me, my morning ritual of greeting the day, jolting me totally awake as I realized what I'd just said. My next thought was wonder if that is something spoken by John Hancock, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, or John Q Public, this day 234 years ago.
Did they also awaken the day after their Tea Party and thank God for giving them "one more day to get it right", hoping in their heart that King George would listen?
Did they arise, unshutter their window to look upon a bright morning, hear the bird-song and watch the cool breeze wave the branches of the leafless forest about them, thinking of the duty this day brought? The plowing, the seeding, the cleaning of harness and tools, of feeding their livestock, providing for their own.
Did they wonder what kind of news this day would bring about their actions of the previous day? What would the effect be when the King heard the news?
Did they look to the rifle and powder horn, the bag of round balls hanging above the mantle and say a silent prayer that those tools would not be necessary today?
Did they sip their morning tea in fearful thought of what they'd done- all the while hoping common sense and calm heads would prevail?
Despite it all, did they steel their nerve, resolve to see this issue through to the end, regardless the personal cost, knowing this was not for themselves, but for those soft, joyous faces of the children still sleeping in the rooms above? Knowing it was for those they did not yet know but dreamt of one day bouncing on their knee, of tickling under the chin, of holding close and telling them he loved them. Did they shake their head and rebuke the devils of war invading their thoughts?
Did they wonder about those neighbors who derided and discounted and ridiculed them their actions, their beliefs, their desires to be free, to just be heard by those in power?
Did they wonder upon which of those neighbors could they depend when the moments came to act upon the declaration they'd made yesterday? Could those who agreed in principle yet stood on the sidelines be counted upon to help carry the burden that could soon be thrust upon them all?

In conclusion to yesterday's lakeside event, all who'd served in uniform to this great country were asked to organize to the side of the field. As we stood- nearly one third the attendance, about 400 men and women- in haphazard formation, Lee Greenwood's song "God Bless the U.S.A." was played.
"...I'll gladly stand up next to you and defend Her still today..."
These were men we knew we could count upon because they were there, made their intentions clear, unequivocal. These were men who had already loaded and primed their rifles, had sharpened their knives. Men who knew the taste of fear and the smell of gunpowder and blood upon their hands, who'd seen brothers fall beside them and knew the finality of death's action to life. These were men who'd answered the questions in no uncertain terms, knew the consequences that could come because of their beliefs, their love of country, but most, for love of their family.
These were men with teary eyes worthy of standing beside.
These were Patriots.
Bless God, God bless us in that history need not repeat itself to keep us free.


Spirit of '76- Part One: Pix

With the Headwaters of the Great Lakes as backdrop, area Patriots met in Duluth to make our voices heard on Taxation Without Representation.
Patrick Henry greeted attendees.

What it was about and who was in attendance.

There were more flags than "protest signs", which actually worked better because of the 20mph wind coming off the bay.

Usually reserved people listened attentively to the speakers state our aims and goals, the desires of all who came.

Although an anti-abortion message, this flag has a double-entendre in telling who is now charged with paying the bills this country has amassed.

Who this rally really represents.
As usual, click pix to see larger size. In part two will be my thoughts on the Tea Party Rally.
Bless God, God bless.

Really? What "election"?

I really do just absolutely have to ask this question...

"Just what makes anyone think there's actually going to be an election in November?"

First, a dyed-in-the-wool Communist moves to the White House. (No: I refuse to say "he" was "elected".)

Then he appoints nothing but baby killing One-World Gaia worshippers to every office he possibly can. And these same people condemn and marginalize and besmirch honest, real Americans as being terrorists and criminal in their actions.

Next this Communist is running around the world telling people who suck their existence from our tit that we are a bane to the world, are not worth the time of day.

Through threats, blackmail, bribery and outright lies, he gets control of the largest businesses in the world as well as shivving a forced-to-purchase non-insurance insurance program upon only real Americans- Muslim and illegals need not purchase, just receive. To really frost the cake, his minions create a situation where everyone gets to pay doctors to abort the children and euthanize the elderly.

And not a whimper from any American about all of this. (If there was, it sure didn't make enough noise to make the news on any but "conservative talk radio".)

(Okay: I'm being facetious there: I know we made a hell of an uproar, but no one heard. Kind of like the tree falling in the forest when no one is around to hear it fall: did it make a sound? My point here is really that "we allowed the MSM to make our issues "non-issues", therefore, "we did not make a whimper" over any of these issues.)

And now people are crying because we're losing more and more rights to the "PTB".

Why? Why are we whining and talking about "wait till the next election"?

"...A California Democrat is proposing a new law requiring residents to register their shotguns and rifles or go to jail, has learned...";contentBody

This is going to pass. I don't care what Californians do or say, it's going to pass. Why?

Because the MSM isn't going to do anything to help anyone stop it, even if they inform (or wanted to) California residents. Their first, and last, response is going to be, "Good for California children. We'll finally get the criminals disarmed." And every Californian is going to swallow it hook, line and sinker because "it's for the children". (And every wet-back in California is going to dig out more ammunition and lock and load.)


Because no one has stepped up and "read them their rights". They have no fear, no dread of "losing their jobs" or "wait till the next election". No one has taken the media to task- and I'm not talking about a letter writing or Email campaign or making snide comments on the news site. (Read the comments to the article.)

Someone in California has to step up to the plate and unequivocally show the MSM what their responsibilities truly are.

Here I am pointing fingers at Californians.

I won't apologize, but am going to say that Californians are not the only ones to blame. Though "what begins in California becomes the norm nationwide" is quite possibly true, it is no excuse to wait for something to start (in California) before it spreads.

We The People need to get off our knees- the time for praying for change was before it became law- and start acting.

We The People need to let the MSM and politicians know in no uncertain terms that we are fed up to the gills with the un-American activities they promulgate.

It's time to take the battle to the enemy.

Bless God, God bless.

Even Hollywood and TV "Comedians" are finally seeing through the Dark Lord...will the MSM join the band wagon? (We can only hope- but don't hold your breath.)
