You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once. - Robert A. Heinlein -

I wish I was surprised
Ladies and Gents, I've said to too many times, but I'll say it again. The
Combine that with the fact that most Donks don't understand why America should be defended. Indeed, most Democrats do NOT defend America at all, much less any of America's interests outside of our borders. Remember, to Leftists like Obama, America is the problem and not the solution.
So when Obama dithers, and waffles, and votes "Present" just like he did during his entire short Senate career, you cannot be surprised. He did it for years, and it got him elected to the Presidency. Do you honestly now think that he's going to change his ways? Who cares if a few more Myrmidons die in Afghanistan? According to Obama, we're out there air-raiding villages and killing children. For Obama, a few more dead Soldiers is not really a "Bad Thing". He never gave a rats ass about us anyways. The one and only thing Obama gives a shit about is making sure his political career can go on unblemished. That's why he keeps blaming Bush for his fuck-ups. And you know what? As long as people let him keep blaming Bush, Obama will continue to let his fuck-ups and his inaction get Soldier's killed.
It's not about the actions, it's about who he can blame.
You know, I'm really, really wondering if I want to defend a country that would elect this piece of shit.

It's crap like this that makes me stock up on ammunition for the coming civil war. Ladies and Gentlement, we now have political leadership who are unwilling to defend this country. Let that sink in for a while. We have the greatest military in the world. Our economy is what drives the global economy. We have unprecedented influence on every country in the world, and our political leadership WILL NOT DEFEND US ON THE WORLD STAGE. Our political leadership is giving our enemies the keys to our destruction. Our political leadership is putting the barrel of a shotgun into our mouths and putting our enemies fingers on the fucking trigger!
As part of the next arms reduction treaty between superpowers, the United States has tentatively agreed to unprecedented Russian access to American nuclear missile sites. According to published accounts, Russian weapons inspectors will be given an open door to American nuclear sites in order to monitor the number of missiles and warheads. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is quite satisfied with the deal. Perhaps it is an error of omission, but there is no news of a similar concession from the Russian side. This is psychologically and strategically significant: first, because it presents us with a President and a Secretary of State who are mistaken in their assessment of Kremlin trustworthiness; second, because it shows weakness in the President; third, because the Russians are demonstrating a kind of superiority.
The leaders of the United States are unlike any previous leaders we’ve seen at the helm of a major power. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently made an extraordinary statement: “We want to ensure that every question that the Russian military or Russian government asks is answered.” And she means it. If a Russian foreign minister made a similar statement, one might expect to glimpse his colleagues suppressing giggles in the background. The America side makes such statements without the least cynicism, irony or humor. The U.S. Secretary of State is putting the concerns of her Russian colleagues first. She is not putting the concerns of the American people first. This is at the core of the process. The strategic interest of the United States holds no place in the President's policy. Some greater good – or alleged greater good – is being promoted. You may call this greater good by the name of "world peace."
At some point, this self-destructive behavior will simply lead to one part of this country telling the other part to go fuck itself. And that's when the shooting starts. So yeah, I'm stockpiling ammo, because the elected leadership in this country can't even represent this country, and that shows a problem too big to be ignored.

The Warrior Song
And then I realized, that's not exactly something to be ashamed of. Hell, I'm rather proud of that fact.

A "Senior GOP Strategist"
“A senior GOP strategist, granted anonymity in order to speak candidly, lamented that in endorsing Hoffman, the contenders had delivered to the White House an early victory in their efforts to brand the Republican Party as dominated by its conservative wing.CONSERVATIVE then hang it up. Just hang it up and get it over with. Right now I wouldn't cry if the every "Senior GOP Strategist" suck-started a shotgun, because they've taken what used to be the most powerful political movement in the country and DESTROYED IT!
“‘The Obama White House has made a lot of mistakes, but they’ve certainly gotten the Republican Party’s number,’ said the strategist.
“The rush to back Hoffman, this strategist said, is ‘proof that the Obama political strategy is working.’”
Crap like THIS is why the GOP is a dying party. Endorsing a candidate MORE LIBERAL THAN THE DEMOCRAT, in a solidly Republican district, shows just how brain-dead and empty the Stupid Party really is! For the love of Pete, if the GOP had run a moderately conservative candidate in that district this would be a non-issue! But Scozzafava is a liberal. A died in the wool liberal, more liberal than the Democrat in the race, and the GOP is actively pushing her as a viable Republican Candidate. Give me a break!
If you can't stand on your principals, then you're nothing more than a suit filled with hot air and bullshit. In short, you're nothing more than a Democrat. Which is what the
So fuck the GOP. Let the GOP die the death it deserves, unless it can wake the hell up and get back to what made it a strong, powerful movement to begin with:
As usual, read the whole thing. If the GOP doesn't want to be conservative, then kick them to the curb, and kick those stupid fucking retards HARD. There's already a liberal party in this country, we don't need two of them. Let the GOP pull an Arlen Specter and finally admit they're nothing but a bunch of liberal, nanny-statist, corrupt spineless douchbags. And let them die.
How about: Individual liberty. Respect for the Constitution as it was written. Smaller, less expensive, less intrusive government. Strong national defense. Patriotism. Self reliance. The American Dream that you can build a good life, and your children will build a better one.
Not many words there - but most Americans will easily understand them, and if you asked them to choose between those notions, and the beliefs of the left, similarly condensed, I believe the vast majority would vote for the conservative vision.
What does the left stand for? What is its vision?
This: Collective cooperation. A “living” Constitution that changes to fit whatever the left wants to mean. Larger, more expensive, more intrusive government that always knows better than its citizens. Shame for your country. Reliance on the state. The notion that we consume too much, and that we much accept a future in which our children have a worse life than we do, for the good of all.
I ask you: How can that compete with our own ideals and vision?
This is gonna hurt
While campaigning for the Democratic presidential nomination, Barack Obama said his cap-and-trade tax plans would "bankrupt" anyone building a coal-fired power plant. Although those taxes haven't materialized, the Environmental Protection Agency has put the brakes on 79 surface mining permits in four states since he was elected.
The EPA says these permits could violate the Clean Water Act and warrant "enhanced" review. But the agency went even further last week, announcing plans to revoke a permit for the Spruce No. 1 Mine in West Virginia - a move that has caused anxiety among coal-state Democrats about the future of the industry under the Obama administration.
Of course, we KNEW what was going to happen once Teleprompter Jesus got elected, he friggin TOLD us what he was going to do. So now we're reaping the rewards. Ladies and Gentlemen, over half the electricity in this country is produced at coal fired plants. About 57% or so, to be exact. What happens when the cost of coal goes up because of these permits getting rejected?I can remember being stationed at Ft. Riley back in the 90's, and having my electric bill damn near match my rent because the Kansas Power Company was a coal-burning plant. Even now, the Ragin' Mrs. and I do whatever we can to keep our power consumption down, and believe me when I say we don't exactly have much to cut back on. What happens when people are paying an extra $100 to $200 per month for their electricity? What do you think is going to happen to the economy when that money is removed from the local economy due to the high cost of power?
They'll collapse, that's what. And right now there's nothing we can do about it, thanks to the god-like powers the
Like I said, this is gonna hurt.

You'll notice I have a link to Soldier's Angels in the upper right hand corner of the blog. I have the link to Project Valour IT in the right hand sidebar. This is one of the few charities in life that you can look at, inspect, and be damned sure that your money is going to where they say it is. And there's no worthier cause.
Oh... and remember to donate for the ARMY TEAM! GO ARMY! BEAT NAVY! HOOAH!
WHOOPS! Right country, wrong lady! Ah, here's the one:
Meet Diana. She's a Benelli Nova in 12 gauge, all black, and all mine.
Now I know there are going to be some people who said "Dave, we said REMINGTON, not BENELLI!" Yes, you did say Remington, but let me tell you about my little trip to the gun shop. As I was perusing the shotguns and chatting with the salesman, we got down to the brass tacks of what I wanted. I wanted to be able to hunt ducks, geese, turkey, various other waterfowl, and anyone stupid enough to come into my house uninvited. I was not going to be hunting deer with it. And of course, I was looking for as low a price as possible so I could afford all the various accoutrements that go along with a gun; a hard gun case, plenty of ammo to train with, cleaning supplies, et cetera. And the salesman looks at me, says "I've got your gun. Hold on." and then disappears into the back. He comes back holding this gun. The only time it's been fired is when the gunsmith tested it. It's brand freakin' new, so new it practically SQUEAKS when I hold it. Some guy won it in a raffle and decided that he didn't want it, so he sold it to the gun shop. Since they bought it from a person rather than from the manufacturer, they have to consider it a used gun.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I walked out of that shop with the brand new Benelli shotgun, ammo, case, snap caps and a few other things for under $350.
So yes, you did tell me to get a Remington. But Diana, she seduced me with her sweet whisperings into my ears (and wallet). Maybe it's the Italian blood in me.
And so now I'm ready to go target shooting. Practice, practice, practice, and then go hunting. Ah, sweet duck on my plate! I can taste it already........ And if you're wondering about the name, yes, it's THIS Diana. Not that other Diana.
