FK – Stop calling our domestic blood enemies, our greatest enemies, by their cute names and stop treating the creatures with any more respect than you’d give a rattlesnake in a sleeping bag and get ready for what will be required.
I’m a vet and I can’t have respect for this ‘country’ anymore. It’s no longer a nation of men:
Memorial day was a Yankee holiday created to remember the Union dead, those who helped kill the republic by telling the southern states they couldn’t seek the same independence their forefathers did only a couple generations before. Simple fact.
Let’s get over the blind patriotism and blind faith and deal in reality. The Bill of Rights is what makes us exceptional. That’s what we’re fighting for. We are supposed to have a secular government. Freedom of religion means freedom from religion, any religion, or any version, sub-version or subversion. It can’t mean anything but that.
Bless your heart sir but many Vietnam draftees may not have had any more ‘belief in America’ than the commies heckling you. Many of them came home to protest with the communist insurgency that was the anti-war movement. Lot’s of ignorant 19-year-olds die in wars.
Our mistake in both Korea and Vietnam was in not keeping the troops home and helping them kill the commies here first. McCarthy was right. We need to bring back the committee on un-American activities and prosecute all these commie front groups for waging war on the Bill of Rights.
Commies in power practice blacklisting all the time and lie about it to our faces and tell us we ‘live in a free country’ while doing everything possible to destroy that freedom. It’s way past time to stop tolerating them.
“We found there is a negative response of the whole bee community to increasing pesticide use,” Park said, adding that fungicides also are contributing to the problem.
The effects of pesticides on wild bees were strongest in the generation that followed pesticide exposure, Park said, possibly suggesting pesticides affect reproduction or offspring. Park said her research only looked at one generation to the next, and more study is needed. The study found no effect of pesticides on honeybees, but European honeybee hives are brought in to an orchard for short periods during blossoming then removed. In addition, growers are careful not to spray while honeybees are in the area. “Honeybees may have shown a response if they were allowed to stay,” Park said.
FK – All this reads like gobblydegook to me. The ‘experts’ can never decide whether something is killing us or not. I have white clover in my yard and haven’t noticed any honeybees around lately. My dogs haven’t been treated for fleas yet this year either. Normally they be covered in them by now if not treated. Ticks seem to be down as well. Maybe the incredibly cold winter we had played a part, maybe not.
I’ve never bought a Valentines Day card or gift in my life. The short answer is I never met one who I couldn’t say no to who couldn’t say ‘No’ to me. The long answer is I never had any desire to ‘settle’ in that area of my existence, since I had to ‘settle’ in so many others.
The really long answer is that before I had any real clue about how far gone we are as a culture, civilization, nation, I had a hard time understanding the mindless crap my fellow ‘human’ herd animals do to/with each other. A big part of the time I just didn’t care.
This admission comes from watching a video I’ll post below, and got me started on a comment that turned into a column:
Several years back a fellow associate at a place where I was wasting my time in exchange for money asked me about the female species, something about what they want or whatever. I just looked at him and smiled and said “Have you ever seen one of those nature shows where the male bird builds the nest to impress the female birds and is stealing stuff from the other male birds in order to do so?”
He nodded yes. “That’s it,” I said. “That’s what they want.” He got this look on his face that was a mixture of hatred, dejection, disgust… He wasn’t an ‘attractive’ guy to start with, and that’s being considerate, and I’ve never been a good judge of horse flesh, or ‘stud’ flesh rather, not bending that way. I don’t think I mentioned the stealing part, but he obviously got the point anyway.
A young lady once had a crush on me, not bragging at all, it was just obvious, but bless her heart she missed the looks line. She was a sweet person but I later swore off the ‘friend’ thing as it usually leads to situations best avoided and even then was leery of it.
She was trying to convince me to attend some event with her and a fellow ‘associate’ was coming toward us who had not only missed the looks line but stood in the ugly line twice as far as I could tell, but again I’m no judge of horse(stud) flesh really, and I asked her “What about going with so and so,” motioning toward the aforementioned. She got this confused look on her face and declined in so many words, proving my long held theory that despite the words of the mothers of ugly children everywhere, ‘Looks do matter.’
The reason you’re so special Julie, and the few like you, is that even though you probably want the nest and the security, and those things aren’t evil, but you also have a mind, or at least something that resembles one, and it might take considerably less cajoling to get you to understand a few basic things that ‘real'(yeah, I grew up watching John Wayne movies) men used to take for granted:
At the end of the day, or war, which ever comes first, if you can’t trust the person you’re legally bound to with your life, you have a dangerous problem.
If she/he would allow a common criminal or government criminal to have their way with your kids what do you have?
If they don’t share at least some of your values and understand why you might have to walk out the door and go do things that most of our ignorant mindless brain-dead society would condemn you for then…
For they will call us ‘terrorists’ and murderers and extremists and Nazis until we crush them or they crush us and write it into their history books. When I first started in this, uh, lifestyle, just mentioning the words “Liberty” or “patriot” in polite conversation would gain one all of that and worse, especially on a college campus.
We had one female seem a little interested in joining ‘The College Patriots,’ a group I founded back in the mid 90s. Her room mate convinced her that some people hide behind labels when they really have other intentions, so she lost her nerve I suppose. I found that quite ironic at the time, considering what our domestic blood enemies have done to this country with their own deceptions, and still do.
But then as far as I can tell many ‘libertarians’ are under the mistaken impression that this war can be won by reason, logic and the peace and love the Weathermen were talking about before they started blowing stuff up, when most voters will never read Mises or Rand or Rockwell but will vote on their stomachs or their sex glands, whichever is demanding the most attention at the moment.
But then most ‘libertarians’ believe in the non-aggression principle and will wait until the black-suited Nazis come and murder their families before they fight back or even organize to fight back or publicly say they’ll fight back on a regular enough basis for it to mean anything. So they seem to be waiting for the apocalypse, which we should be working/fighting to prevent.
If they don’t understand on some basic level why our form of govt. and the laws we exist/slave under matter and only care about what kind of nest you can build for them without understanding an all powerful government can burn the nest down whenever it chooses, what do you have?
All the other stuff is just flotsam in the punch bowl at the wedding reception. Real life is spiked.
I’ve seen couples that argue constantly but stay together for years and others whose relationships are based on laughter, or like many in my grandparents generation, simple survival and the fatalism of the generations that preceded us not to mention the ideal of ‘the good wife’ from the book of Proverbs and the ancient prescription against divorce because of the damage broken homes and parent-less children do to cultures, large and small.
It comes from thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of… years, you get the idea, of human evolution where our ancestors did what they had to. We’ve lost that as a society, or it was stolen from us, or both.
And it comes from that tiny minority in every generation, which many of Julie’s viewers are, that actually give a damn about something beyond their own daily survival. Most don’t study enough history, if any at all, to understand how precious and rare that is.
The submissive usually survive to breed. The sheeple will graze on. Most of them could be sheepdogs, but will never make the attempt. So it’s up to that tiny minority. We have to find a way to stick together or accept the shearing and the slaughter like the rest.
