FK – If we didn’t have ‘cheap food’ many would starve and have even worse health. Look at some of the pix from the not-so-good-ol-days. A lot of those people looked malnourished or ill. and they were the ones who could afford to buy a portrait.
A lot of this may go back to human transition to agriculture which allegedly happened only a few thousand years ago. Have our bodies evolved to deal with this diet yet? Do we want them to? I was surprised when I learned it’s only been a couple thousand years since some of us became lactose tolerant.
I grew up on a small farm and going to the redneck mecca and buying stuff trucked in from other places beats the hell out of hot days in the sun hoeing weeds.
I have no romantic illusions about that experience. Too bad many others don’t. But then my grandmother enjoyed gardening and many others do.
Our ancestors spent their time in and out of the shade, in forests or on savannahs, working, hunting, gathering in the cooler periods and resting betwixt and between. This is common sense.
I don’t trust the corporations any farther than I trust our evil governments. What they do to us needs to be laid at the feet of ‘we the people’ because the average dumbass isn’t doing his/her job in keeping them in line.
The evil ones are a small percentage of the population. The alleged ‘good’ sit on their asses waiting for the world to end allowing the bad to do their thing without retribution.
We have a representative republic, guaranteed to every state, not a democracy.
We have a Bill of Rights that acknowledges rights we are born with, not granted or created by any government.
We vote with the knowledge that voting is the most violent act anyone can participate in because voting is electing someone to hire someone to stick a government gun in our neighbors’ faces and force our version of reality on them at the threat of their very lives.
We stand ready to protect our Liberty and the Liberty of our neighbors, not destroy it, via any version of authoritarianism, of any age or place.
We are prepared with knowledge and force of arms to make war against and kill if necessary those who would destroy our Bill of Rights whether they represent domestic or foreign enemies.
We do not lie to ourselves, our families, our friends, our business associates, our descendants, our enemies, about these things and do not EVER tolerate those who would have us do so.
If the troops were fighting for our freedom they’d all be here.
The only real reason for the militia
Barry Bright – June 15, 2017
“We’re not trying to overthrow the government. The government’s already been overthrown.” – Charlie Puckett, Kentucky State Militia Commander
For 70 plus years survivors of the ‘holocaust’ and their associates have hunted Nazis and ‘former’ Nazis and German soldiers who in one way or another contributed to the alleged murder of 6 million ‘Jews’ and others The National Socialist German Workers Party found to be undesirables.
They have prosecuted even lowly camp guards who may not have even belonged to the Nazi party but who as part of a larger machine were just ‘doing their jobs‘ for a check and a retirement plan assuming they survived the wars.
Just like our modern soldiers and guardsmen and policemen, who by the way do not exist to ‘protect’ anyone or their property via more than one SCOTUS ruling. Instead as history shows they exist to protect the state, enforce its laws and collect its taxes.
As history shows again gun or weapons confiscation almost always precedes genocide thus any participating in such are equally guilty of genocide. All ‘gun control’ is propaganda designed to condition the sheeple to accept more ‘control’ thus all gun control is an act of war. So all those forwarding gun control are waging war on human liberty, our Bill(s) of Rights of the United States and several states and on humanity itself.
The most important ‘private property’ anyone owns is their own life, health, safety, and no one, anywhere, anytime has the ‘right’ to take that from them or deny them their most basic right, that of self defense.
The words ‘illegal gun’ are not found in our Second Amendment, which as the rest of the Bill of Rights is an acknowledgment, not a creation or allowance, of the most basic right any creature possesses, the right to fight back against and kill if necessary those who would enslave(in our case enslave us further) or otherwise abuse or murder them for whatever statist/authoritarian reasons or excuses.
The first battle in our American revolution was fought on April 19, 1775, now known as ‘Patriots’ Day’ during which British Troops advanced upon two or more villages in order to seize their cannon, powder and shot and small arms, which were locally owned and controlled.
In response to this, to make a long story short, our ancestors, men of the local militia who kept their personal weapons that were equal to or superior to that carried by British soldiers at home at all times or near their persons so that they could respond at a ‘minute’s notice’ thus the name ‘minute men,’ proceeded to kill government employees all the way back to Boston.
Minute men kept their weapons with them. They didn’t go to the armory to be issued the weapons that were equal or superior to those carried by British soldiers. Neither should we.
For the record Patriots Day should be our greatest holiday for it was the day the local common man and woman began doing their part in securing their future independence and Liberty. And they had blood of their fellow Englishmen on their hands when they were finished.
That is how our country was founded. Indeed this entire continent, and all of human civilization, sits upon and draws its food and water from blood-stained ground.
Americans killing government employees. That’s what won our country, our independence and what’s left of our Liberty. History shows it’s a process that will have to be repeated.
In the wake of the devastation of a hurricane named ‘Katrina’ a few years back local and other ‘officials,'(public servants) who have still not been called to answer for their crimes, ordered police and other uniformed sanctioned soldiers of the state to participate in similar evil. Most of them did so.
At the least they should all have laid down their arms and refused per their Oaths to defend our Constitution and its Bill of Rights. At the most they should have been killed by local citizens because of their participation in the carrying out of these orders. The people would have been well-within their natural rights regardless of what modern authoritarian ‘law’ might have to say about it.
While possible it is highly unlikely any state governor(elected public servant) would ever call out his ‘state’ guardsmen to defend the liberty of his employers from the Federal govt. In fact the opposite is far more likely.
So let’s hear no more about the ‘National Guard’ or the Army or any other federal force being equal with the militia. They are not now nor have they ever been. There are some states with ‘state defense forces‘ but most likely their weapons are all kept locked in armories as well.
We can see now what is happening in Europe and England. Most of those peoples face severe restrictions on their ‘right to bear arms’ either in defense of their Liberty, their loved ones, their property or themselves.
Thanks to law passed by “liberal”(communist/globalist) trash rape gangs now roam the streets of several European cities. There are ‘no-go’ zones where even their police are told not to tread. Muslim clerics regularly preach sermons where they proclaim Shari’a law is our future and all of western civilization will soon bow to their version or sub-version or subversion of what ‘god’ is.
Who is letting them in and allowing them to stay? Who is more culpable, an enemy without, or within the gate that drags the Trojan Horse through it?
And still the real enemies of human Liberty and western civilization, not the fundie ragheads of whatever name or stripe, but white-skinned “Liberal”(commie) trash are allowed to hold office, pass their laws, tell their lies, with no more repercussion than one would lay upon a mischievous child and really far less.
But they, despite the denial of many to most who claim to love freedom, know full well they are waging war. As part of that war they must disarm us as they did the people of England and Australia of arms that might equal, in part, that carried by any common soldier or Marine.
When that day comes, and a biased SCOTUS rules such orders can be carried out, or before, we must be ready.
Indeed the SCOTUS(our employees), is NOT the final arbiter of our rights. WE THE PEOPLE ARE!
So may it be deemed responsible and right that if any ‘gun turn in points’ are ever instituted within the boundaries of our nation those running them shall be treated as our nation’s soldiers would have treated those German camp guards if they had refused to surrender and give up their horrendous job which they undertook for the sake of a paycheck and a retirement plan or because, “I was just following orders.”
That’s the reason for the militia. Not to sit home muttering ‘Molan labe’ and dying one household at a time but to go forward as our ancestors did, hunting our enemies and destroying them.
Where’s yours? Are you afraid of the ‘m’ word that’s in the Second Amendment?
During the 1993 Waco Siege of the Branch Davidians, elements of the Alabama and Texas Army National Guard were called in to assist the ATF and the follow on effort by the Federal Bureau of Investigation; the National Guard’s involvement was limited to several specific areas; surveillance and reconnaissance, transport, maintenance and repairs, training and instruction, helicopters, unarmed tactical ground vehicles. The Army National Guard helicopters were also used to do photographic reconnaissance work. Training for ATF agents included such subjects as Close Quarters Combat, and combat medical instruction, and a mock up of the Mount Carmel complex was constructed at Fort Hood, Texas for rehearsals. ATF also received several surplus helmets, flack vests, canteens, first aid dressings, empty magazines, and some night-vision equipment, in addition to MREs and diesel fuel. The FBI would request and receive the use of Bradley Armored Fighting Vehicles, and tank retrieval vehicles, as well as overflights by UH-1 and CH-47 helicopters.
FK – That guessing thing is called the ‘grandma’ method.
Have you discussed wild strawberries? My grandmother would make a wild strawberry cobbler most every year. Far surpasses the domesticated in taste. I mean every year to try to find enough to do something with but never find my rountuit on that. Unless you find a really concentrated patch as we used to have in our hayfield/garden patch in central Kentucky picking enough can be time consuming as they’re quite small.
There’s also a another plant that produces a similar tiny red berry, don’t know what it’s called. They’re not as common as far as I’ve seen, and don’t have the same type leaves as strawberries and haven’t chanced eating one. Wild strawberries are just diminutive versions of what we see in gardens.
Something else that’s killing us:
FK – So is it ‘hydrogenated’ vegetable oil? Does that make a difference?
If you drink orange Fanta with your salmon does that help?
FK – Of course there’s been ‘climate change’ as long as there’s been a climate, which the evidence shows is billions of years. The evidence also shows the “Liberal”(commie) trash will use any excuse, real or imagined, to control every aspect of every existence on this planet. It’s in their nature. They won’t stop until we force them to stop.
“I’ve seen what’s happened with the decline of tobacco,” said Furnish. “Central and eastern Kentucky need a new crop. If we can build an industry around hemp here, it’ll be beneficial to growers.”
Furnish is also the chair of the Kentucky Hemp Industry Council, a 16-member group from around the state and nation that represents various stakeholder in hemp’s future, from farmers and crop processors to industries and retailers that want to process and sell hemp products. Hemp’s fiber and oil can be used in a multitude of goods, including food, paper, building materials, beauty products and much more.
Kentucky is entering its second year of industrial hemp pilot projects. The first round in 2014 produced a wealth of data about production methods, seed varieties, harvesting, processing techniques and uses for harvested hemp.
FK – How sad that in a ‘free country” farmers have to get permission to grow a crop…
