About Me

My photo
I'm a simple man, not a simpleton. The worst thing any of our leaders can do is to get those two things confused. I'm a warrior for those things I believe in. I stand up for my friends, family, God, and country. All I truly want is for the government to stay as far out of my life as I can get it. Oh and just in case you haven't guessed it; I'm conservative in my bones.

A Few Random Headlines

Well, I'm back. I took a little time off from blogging. The reasons for this were many. From a general lack of time (although I consider that a dodge) to a very real sense of depression because of the direction that our nation is facing and it's inability to see the repercussions of its choices. But I'm back, as I said, and so it's time to get back into the saddle and try to point out to my fellow Americans exactly where we are going wrong. To this point I offer these headlines from today's news sites.

16 illegals sue Arizona rancher; Claim violation of rights as they crossed his land...

This one makes my blood boil. First off, if this Patriot has really turned over 12,000 illegals to the Border Patrol, then he should be given a Congressional Gold Medal of Honor. It is a travesty of justice for these illegals to be allowed to sue this man. They were on his land and are lucky he didn't just shoot them where they sat. They were very lucky they weren't in Texas, as that is their right by law, considering the damage that is happening to his ranch and property. God speed Mr. Barnett. I'll follow up on this when I find out more later this week.

Specter, Snowe, Collins Anger GOP Base

This one is such an understatement that it boggles the mind. I kept turning the word "Anger" over and over in my mind and came to the conclusion that it just wasn't hard enough to describe the animosity I feel and have felt for those three over the years. All three of these Rinos have been a thorn in Conservatives sides for too long. At least, if the article is to be believed this is the death knell for Specter. Unfortunately, we will have him haunting us for the next 2 years. Also, his defeat will come too late to protect our children and grand children from the President's plans for our Socialist transition.

Stimulus To Ban Religious Worship - 'This isn't like a convenient oversight, this is intentional'--WND


Oh, where to start? Am I surprised that the Dems, who have attacked the Judeo-Christian heritage of this nation at every opportunity, would put this in their first major bill? Not even close. However, I will applaud Sen. Jim DeMint for his stand on this topic, and I am only sorry that we do not have more people in our Government that can act more like statesmen and less like the political prostitutes that they are.

In closing, I would like to ask my Conservative brothers and sisters, how do you recommend that we recover from these, first assaults of the Socialists and Communists on our national heritage?

I am not a bit shocked by the 3 Senators. They're not even RINO's they're Dems in cheap clothing. Ouch, I just realized what the acronym for that is DICC's.

As much as I was disgusted by the way the Dems treated Lieberman in Connecticut in his last election, I can't help but wonder if the GOP should'nt do the same to Specter in 2010. Worst that will happen is he will be replaced by another liberal.

Government is supposed to be by the people, of the people and for the people. If these criteria are not met, revolution should occur. I say a financial revolution where people boycott paying taxes by claiming EXEMPT on their W4's. If all Americans did this, the IRS would dissolve. Perhaps this is just a pipe dream, but if everyone took a break from paying CREDIT CARD bills and taxes, see how long the recession would last.

My husband busts his ass working twelve hour days and his take home pay is only 69.2% of his gross earnings. We are having some difficulties NOT because we are irresponsible, but because we literally get raped in deductions (despite the mortgage interest deductions).

A peaceful revolution can occur if the focus is financials.

Lastly, how are you and your family? I heard Oklahoma is getting hit with tornadoes. I hope you are well.

I wish I knew. I am so afraid we will just simmer in the water until it starts to boil and by then it is to late for us.
My husband brought home a Newsweek this evening the cover headline reads: WE ARE ALL SOCIALISTS NOW
THE PERILS AND PROMISE OF THE NEW ERA OF BIG GOVERNMENT.
I haven't read the article yet. Probably will not be happy with the direction it takes.

OK you posted the comments, so you are okay. God is good.

Joe said...

Those three don't even deserve the name RINO. They redefine the meaning of "Republican."

Greywolfe said...

Thanks guys. Disa, my family is good, we live up in the northwestern part of the state.

Also, as to your idea of a peaceful revolution, it wouldn't work. It would have to be done en masse and frankly, the American people have been trained too well to accept all the federal government hands out. In addition, no socialist government would ever allow that to stand. They would be handing out prison sentences and property confiscations like candy at Halloween.

And finally, there has never been a "peaceful revolution" that has ever been successful. The only way to be successful in that type of thing is to completely remove the corrupt politicians. And that can't be done without force.

If you don't believe that, just think about all the voting fraud that went on during the last two election cycles. Corrupt politicians will do ANYTHING to protect their power.

GW:
Too bad many of us are mindless sheeple. The only peaceful revolution I know of occurred when Czechoslovakia split up in the so called velvet revolution. So you have a point. OK the civil rights movement ala King was peaceful and legislation was passed to grant people of color equal rights before the law.

BUT it seems like people were smarter then.

However, imagine if EVERY single tax paying American decided to be exempt. There are not enough soldiers and military powers to deal with peaceful revolution on that level. If they bombed people, this would be cause for a reinvention of our very country...

Greywolfe said...

Ok Disa, I will give you your point. If EVERY taxpayer exepmted themselves, you are right that they couldn't do much about it. The problem is, we, as a nation, can't even come together to determine what we want as a national identity. I don't care if you're talking about national healthcare, "gay" rights, or the color of the bathroom walls in the capitol, there are millions of idiots out there (see ducky) that will react in knee-jerk ways to anything that smacks of conservative values. Its a sad fact, also, that there are millions of Americans that are socialist/communist in their beliefs. They wouldn't follow because of their fundamental beliefs.

And lastly, it could be that such an act would indeed paralize the government and that would open up a terrible gap in our nation's defenses.

No, unfortunately, the gangrene has already set into the bone. The only way to cure it at this point is to use the bone saw. This will not be settled passifically. It would be nice if it were a possibility, but that is not our reality. Our reality is that, as I have posted in the past, our days as a free republic are over without a reset.

Greywolfe said...

Also Disa, in the velvet revolution there was already a general failing of the communist governments in the region. Continuing as they were was not an option anyways.

As for the civil rights movement being peaceful... I beg to differ. How many, including Rev. King, died to bring that fight to reality? How many fell to the Black Panthers? How many trees were decorated with blacks? Houses burned? People beaten or raped? It was anything but peaceful.

The problem with (forgive me for this) wishful thinking in regards to a peaceful solution, is human nature. The powerful want only more power, and the comfortable are unwilling to risk their comfort to protect the rights of those in jeapardy. So the status quo remains and our rights are further savaged.

Oh you are right that the civil rights struggle was far from peaceful GW. But the means to accomplish parity before the law ala King was centered on non violent peaceful protest.

I also agree that human nature is inherently violent. But without MLKing, there would have been blood on the streets for a whole helluva lot longer.

Yes, too bad we cannot seem to unite as Americans cuz if we not only refused to pay taxes and ALSO didn't pay unsecured or credit card debt, we'd be better off.

This is from a debt peon like myself.
