Shades of Grey

Shades of Grey at Kerodin.com

Patriots need to work hard to reduce endless shades to a few...

Guilty or not...

Update: I am curious about the poll results thus far.  I'm not challenging anyone's conclusions, in fact the rationalizations thus offered are 100% logical.  But what I find curious is similar polls during book research had readers taking a different direction.  So, I have added a new poll at the top of Kerodin.com to see if the new lead thought affects the subsequent thinking.  Thank you to all who have contributed.

Read the column at Kerodin.com and then weigh-in.

Third World Status in US...

What are your thoughts on this...




Montana State House
House Minority Leader Jon Sesso stood in the House Chamber, exasperated. He peppered Republicans with questions: "Who decides if the federal government is acting unconstitutionally?"
"Who among us is making these determinations that our freedoms are being lost?" he asked, an incredulous expression on his face as he eyed the Republican side of the chamber.
Republican Rep. Cleve Loney rose. A man of few words, the tea party organizer replied: "I don't intend us to secede from the union. But I will tell you it is up to us. We are the people to decide."

My friends: Montana State Representative Cleve Loney gets it.  Here is his email: cloney@q.com

Montana would be perfect if they had an ocean...

My Thanks to CA

He picked up my column from yesterday at Kerodin.com.

One of the true thinkers of our time, CA deserves to be on every Patriots daily list.


Let's wander the wonderful world of hypotheticals...

First, I want to throw something out there that has zero bearing on any discussion, including the one to follow.  It's just a lack of common sense and a bit of deliberate spin offered by the Left for a calculated gain:  Rape is not a crime of Sex.  It is a crime of power, dominance and violation.

Fail.  Rape is about sex.  If there is no sex, there is no rape.  Simple.  Just one more example of how the Left corrupts common sense for an agenda.

OK - back to our regularly scheduled program:

Tonight I request that you each examine your internal moral compass.  We all draw the line a bit differently in regards to CV and what constitutites a viable target.  We had interesting poll results as I was posting polls on the topic for book research,

There are many variable on the topic.  Not only in who is guilty of aiding the enemies of Liberty, but also the degree of penalty they have earned.  So, let your mind start wiking through the mechanics of who is culpable, and to what degree they deserve reprimand.

Then I'd like you to devote a bit of mental juice to finacing your operations.  If you decide to start operating in your AO, how will you finance your ops?  What is justified in generating cashflow to buy that ghillie suit, or that Gen III Goggle, or that Cell Jammer. 

No need to post, and if you choose to post, please use discretion.

The Left has won

Hi folks.

I'm working on the book.  95% of the content is set, still waiting for 2-3 submissions.  I like the layout - it is unconventional, but easy for our Masters to follow without commiting too much time & energy.

I posted a column over at Kerodin.com - don't bother reading if you are a rah-rah Patriot who doesn't understand that the Right is headed for a defeat and slaughter.

Somewhere through the years the blood of our founding generation was diluted with that of Marx and punks.



Deninger: Read it - it is important

Seems a Gov't Asst. District Attorney advocated live ammunition to turn away protesters...

Read it here.


Get Bloody...

Sometimes it's necessary to get out on the streets and "get a little bloody," a Massachusetts Democrat said Tuesday in reference to labor battles in Wisconsin.

Story is here.

Do you understand, yet?

We are dealing with people who will do anything to be your Master.

Read & Watch.

My experience with Annapolis was entirely underwhelming...almost as bad as a Liberty Movement event.


The Regulators: Committee of Vigilance

In the 1760's, preceeding the Revolutionary War, a group of Citizen's in the Carolinas were sick of bad guys.

So, they took the responsibility of Government into their own hands and started taking care of the bad guys.

I have made my position clear about 2A remedies against Government: It is not yet morally warranted.  I agree with Denninger on the threshold.

I also think that the threshold has been crossed and the moral authority for Citizens to form Vigilance Committees and do the work of Regulators exists.

Do with that what you will.  Our Courts refuse to prosecute Banksters - will our neighbors? 

Every man and woman, every Patriot, has one life to live.  When you are at the end of yours, what will you think of yourself?


TL Davis: The Lines are Drawn

Read his work - every day.


IDEX: Big Toys for Big Boys

IDEX 2011 is happening now.  If you've never had the pleasure of attending an International Weapons Show, every red-blooded American owes it to himself, at least once.

The best way to get in is with connections.  But, if you happen to own your own PMC, the fun really kicks into high-gear...



There are certain folks in the Patriot Movement who thrive on strife among Patriots.  When there is no legitimate beef, they make it up.  Yes, they lie. 

Rather than focus on the hundreds of millions of enemies of Liberty, some folks are simply hardwired to keep natural allies fussing with one another.  Ask yourself why?

I have actually been accused recently, in public, of advocating violence - now!

I think anyone who actually reads what I write in my columns and post here on the blog understands just how stupid such a claim to be.  But it serves their purpose to lie and attempt to cause strife.

Why on Earth would I announce that I would follow Benjamin Franklin's lead and go to Congress, take the time to write a book, and put such a massive bullseye on my own arse if I were advocating violence and ready to single-handedly start a Ruckus?

Yet even more amazing to me is that so many people have their heads so far immersed in arse, they can't be bothered to ask the question every 2 year old knows is the fundamental truth of Nature: Why?

Kerodin.com: CounterValue

Either you get it or you don't.

If you are still diddling with where to draw moral boundaries, you are not ready for this fight.



Book Update

A Stamp Act Official taking a beating by Patriots.

Do we still have any of that blood in our veins?

Book update: All submissions need to be in to me by Friday, folks.  I'm doing final edits over the weekend and submitting the manuscript for our Proof on Sunday night.  I've selected the images and quotes that will be included.  I'll spend the next few days finalizing text, and working on the man who I'd like to write our foreword.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed.


A Minuteman

One of the images for our book.  Are you a Minuteman?  Do you have a full tactical Go Bag ready to go on a minute or so of notice, properly stocked to get into sustained action for up to 72 hours?

What if you are at work when It happens?  Stuck in traffic during rush hour on the highway?

Being a Minuteman is one of our most noble goals.


Wisconsin: Fake Doctor Notes

One more insight to the type of moral cancer that is murdering the republic.

The majority among us will lie, cheat and/or steal for personal gain.

Until we are rid of such people, and the ethics such people embrace, there can only be a downward spiral.

Alvie has information here.  (The graphic is Alvie's, too)

Concerned American has information here.

I'll be in Annapolis to say hi to our purple friends on the 22nd.

If you have the opportunity to get in their faces this week, let's do it and post some images!

I find it interesting that they are avoiding DC...


Winners & Losers

Concerned American asked thios rhetorically the other day: Have there been any Lawyers or Banksters who have gone missing here in the US?

They have in China...here.

Folks add your $.02 about the design/layout of the blog.

I've been writing columns at Kerodin, bloggin news here.

Denninger: He's right, again...

Take the time to read this one from Denninger.

As usual, he cuts through the clutter and gets to the point.

Marx v. Jefferson - Choose your side

TL Davis has a typically outstanding column this evening entitled the Criminalization of Politics.

Something that is difficult for many of us is to put current events into proper historical perspective.  Most of us tend to look at the world as if everything started on the day we were born.

What is happening in Wisconsin today has happened before in our history, more than once. The Alien & Sedition Act was today on steroids.  Lincoln's actions would have made Adams blush.

From TL: Is this the sanctioned approach to politics now? Gangs? Thugs? We don't like a law we threaten to kill the governor? We pretend that there is a connection to Hitler and just do what? What are they proposing? Is the president complicit in these threats by backing those groups making the threats? Should we break some legs to get our political will done?

The answer is, yes.

Progressivism is literally killing Americans and making paupers and criminals of millions more.  It is time that we defend ourselves, by any means necessary.

The political divide between us today is no longer reconcilable.  The chasm between us is that immense space between Marx and Jefferson.  There is no meeting in the middle.  There is no moderated settlement.  The only solution is the political death of one group or the other.

We are spooling up, Right Now.  The sooner we get to the mechanics of winning, the better for everyone, winners and losers.  One group or the other must be run from the country.

There is no other way for this story to end. 


Wisconsin Solution - Workarounds

I just emailed every R Senator in Wisconsin.

They say they can't vote without at least one D present.,

So I suggested that one of the R's switch parties for the day, vote, then switch back.


Now, if they need 20 Senators, my plan won't work.  But it's worth a shot...


Kerodin.com: Marx v. Liberty

The fight between Marxism & Liberty is coming strong.

The Left is flexing its muscle in Wisconsin & Beyond.  They are testing their forces.

It will come to your doorstep, soon.

Kerodin.com: Wisconsin & Beyond

The entire Left has jumped into this fight, including the White House.

It matters to them as a testing ground, and to send a message to those who would oppose them...it is a warning, a shot across the bow.

If you are in that area, be careful - such events can turn ugly, quickly.

Everyone else should be consuming every bit of coverage and taking notes, soaking up the lessons.

This is how it will be everywhere, at some point...add more anger, more weapons, and real carnage.

Column is here.


Wisconsin: One Front in the Polygonal Battlespace

Governor Walker has taken point in this fight that the country must have.

I sent him a letter of support.

We must not simply condemn our Political Class - if one of them has the mettle to do the right thing, they should hear our support.

Here is his email:  govgeneral@wisconsin.gov

If you are a III Patriot, sign your email as such.


Thursday, February 17, 2011


Please take a moment to read Concerned American's post.

His perspective matters.


Who wants it more...again...

Where are our Wisconsin III?

Should we be stepping into the Ruckus up there, providing real leadership for the Tea Party folks who were abandoned by their "Leaders" who are now cozy in Washington?

Arctic Patriot: Keeping Warm Series Cont'd...

Food and water in cold environments are as critical as in hot AO's.

Read AP's latest here.



Coulter's column: As Joe McCarthy once said, if liberals were merely stupid, the laws of probability would dictate that at least some of their decisions would serve America's interests.

I was at an event in Nevada last year where Ann was the keynote.  She has a savage wit, and keen insight.

I do not agree with all of her conclusions, but she is an asset for our side.

...we should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.


This one slipped by MSM...

Of one thing Majidi is sure: “There’s a probability of 100 percent that a WMD event will happen.”

Just because our Political Class hypes the probability for their own tyrannical ends, doesn't mean that the threat isn't real.

Enemies, foreign and domestic exist.  And we twaddle...


Wisconsin: Insight to the Ruckus

So, the State politicians in Wisconsin got serious about addressing the root causes of their fiscal problems, and the Organized Left  moved swiftly to put stupid people in the streets in protest. 

Note the arguments, note the willingness for people to act without regard to common sense, note who is pulling the strings behind the scenes.

Note the 1:85 ratio is probably low.

Kerodin.com: WMD in CONUS

At Kerodin.com we explore the San Diego flub that let the cat out of the bag.

Be ready.  At any moment, from any quarter, everything we know may change or end.



America represents about 20% of the worlds GDP.  Combined with that of the EU, and the "Western World" generates just about 45% of the GDP of the planet.


Arguably, the "Western World" is the youngest of the tribes, yet by huge margins, the most productive, with the highest standards of living.

Lefty's will claim it is because we have exploited the rest of the world.  But, why is it when one looks at the inventions and contributions to humanity, such a disproportionate number of items on the list come from the "Western World"?  Why is there such a large population of the world's oldest tribes that still live in huts, while there is not one Western Country with such a low standard of living?

The Asian cultures are nearest Western, yet the GDP of Texas, California and New York are essentially equal to the entire GDP of Japan.  China, the world's second largest economy, is matched by the cumulative total of the top 15 States in America.  The least productive State in America (2008 numbers) is Vermont, yet it still ranks at about 108 on the list of world economies, beating out some 70+ nations.

Militarily America has no equal.  Texas could probably invade and hold 75% of the countries in the world if they chose to do so.

As bad as things are in America, let us not lose sight of how great - exceptional - we are. 

The only way America will lose our status as the most productive and innovative nation the world has ever known is if we permit the most stupid among us to give it away...

The most stupid among us are doing that, aided by the fact that as a nation too many of our Countrymen are becoming ignorant and detached from traditional American and Western values.

There will come a time in our beloved America when we will be faced with the need to rid ourselves of the immoral and treasonous among us, or yield everything that is good about our species, and what humanity can be.  There is not a single culture on the planet that can advance the species as can our tribe, if we return to our traditional American values.  Even other Western cultures can not compete with American values.  The entire Western world combined barely matches our productivity.  The real advances as a species did not occuer until America came into existence.

We are the best in the world because we refused to be like the rest of the world.

If we assume their values, (or lack of values), Western or non-Western, we surrender the best culture that has ever existed.

If we assume their values, we deserve what we will get...lower standards of living, tyrants, poverty, more disease, more war...


Witnessing History

Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen, Libya, Bahrain.

We are witnessing the rise of the new Caliphate. 

It may not take every State at once, it may not reach Saudi Arabia right away.  But what we are watching is the rise of Islam as the dominant political force in the Middle East.  It will become the stated objective of these Governments to spread Islam.  Ideology will openly and publicly replace commerce as the primary objective of Governments in the region.

Our Government now, according to Drudge, intends to smack Israel, again.

There will come a time in the near future of our republic, if we survive that long, that we will have no choice but to wage serious, unbridled war upon the people of Islam, or they will rule us with a barbarity that is beyond the comprehension of the average American.  Our military will have to kill them, en masse, across the globe, or we will perish.

They chop off heads of Infidels, and our elected officials heap them with praise and money for their religion of Peace.



Government is not Evil, but Men can be

My paternal grandfather had a career in the Navy Surface Warfare Lab.

When he was dying in the late 70's, we had a hospital bed in the living room so he could be comfortable.  He had some serious drugs pumping through his body for more than a year as he withered away.

60 minutes came on and discussed light bulbs and how the Government dropped bacteria into the NYC Subway to test effects.  To our surprise, my Grandfather was able to tell us the story before we heard the words coming from the magic moving picture box.  He had first-hand knowledge about this Op.  He had first-hand knowledge about quite a bit, it turns out.  We never learned my Grandfathers exact place in the system relative to these events, but he obviously had a first or second row seat.

The point: There are Countrymen who will do evil things while wrapped in the flag.  Many such men are drawn to Government.

Here is a list to be considered.  I give it weight because of the incident with my Grandfather.

Do not underestimate what the other guy will do to you.  Ever.

National Budget 101

FedGov receives about 2 Trillion in tax revenue.

They spend 3.5 Trillion, which means the difference is borrowed or printed.

Look at the cumulative of Entitlements, Interest on the Debt, and "Other Mandatory" spending:  It totals more than 2 Trillion. 

If we immediately cut Entitlement programs, the deficit would go away tomorrow. 

Yes, there would be pain.  Yes, we would have to find a way to make sure our oldest and most vulnerable do not go hungry as they have come to rely on their FedGov handouts.

But the pain today will be far less than the pain of doing nothing until the entire system collapses under its own weight.

Then, everyone will taste of Death.

Now consider if FedGov only spent what was Constitutionally enumerated...

Long train of abuses...

Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and John Adams worked together to compile thie ...long train of abuses... in the Declaration. 

I have listed them below.  What is our modern list?

He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.

He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.

He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.

He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing taxes on us without our consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:

For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:

For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:

For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:

For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of the head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

DoJ Budget - ATF had been slated for 13% cut...

The entire thing is here.


Denninger: Fix the Budget Now, or we Fail

KD:  The budget deficit has to be brought negative, and this means a cut in federal spending by 50%.
Which, incidentally, only takes spending back to 2000 levels.
We don't have a choice folks, and we have to do it now. 
We must get rid of fully half of all federal spending and we must run a primary budget surplus including all off-balance sheet items such as Social Security and Medicare.
I know nobody wants to hear it, but that doesn't matter.  It has to happen.  If it doesn't, and there's no evidence that it will, then at some time well before the 2020 line is reached the market will come to the conclusion that we will not fix the problems. 
On the day that happens yields will ratchet and the spiral - the last one - will begin.

No matter what happens on the political front, the arithmetic can not be negotiated or ignored.

If politicians do not immediately fix the spending curve, it will be fixed by reality.

When that happens, every worst nightmare becomes inevitable.

III Percent 527

I recently registered III Percent & III Percent Patriots as a 527 political advocacy group with IRS.

A 527 is allowed to advocate for issues, but we are not allowed, as an organization, to directly advocate for the victory or defeat of any specific candidate, nor may we coordinate any effort with any campaign.

A 527 is required to account for every penny in and out - it is a political organization that is absolutely transparant, publicly listed for all to see.  There can be no shannanigans.  I decided on this type of organization so that everyone could see exactly how every dime is spent.

Our book will be published under this entity, and any profits from selling to "Mainstream" folks will be plowed back into the organization.  I will underwrite the costs of copies for our Masters, select media and a number of copies that I'll send to various Lefty groups, just to watch their heads explode.  The book will be available at Amazon as well, for the general public.

Those of you who agree with me that the III should engage in the political fight in addition to other fronts will understand the need for such an organization.  Nobody involved with the organization will earn a paycheck, unless we actually grow to the point that hiring a professional DC Legislative or PR expert becomes prudent.

I have a concept for a hardcore video I'd like to produce this spring or summer that puts a visual and audio frame of reference out there for the III.  There are several things we can do with a legitimate organization, and you will help plot our course just as you helped to shape the book.

We are the III.  All of us.  If we do not have one another's backs, we are nothing.

I am no leader.

I'm just the guy who registered the paperwork.

Never hesitate to send me a note, offer a suggestion, cuss me.

Without you, they'll crush me (again) for daring to square off against the Status Quo.

With you, perhaps we can help write the next chapter of American History with a favorable ending for Liberty.

Politics alone will not get us out of the mess that is America today.  But political activity is essential, even if we are only laying the ground for the other side of the Ruckus.


Kerodin.com: Necessary Warning

Column up at Kerodin.com.

Thank you all who contributed to the conversations about the book.  We'll have a few more before the final product, but for now we'll get back to our regular programming while I work on compiling the book behind the scenes. 

The book has taken shape in a non-traditional format.  Every page will be a bite-sized and single thought, easily consumed by our sound-bite Political Class and the few reachable folks in the population who may still have a chance to be awakened.

The longest pieces will be the those contributed by you, surrounding our Platform.  Thus far several of you have suggested that you'll be submitting work, but I've only rec'd one thus far.  I'll have to cut entries in the near future so layout can begin - so if you intend to submit, give me a heads-up.  It's cool if you've changed your mind - it is a big deal to put yourself front & center with our Masters.

I've enjoyed talking with all of you on the project, and the percentages submitted on our polls say that most of us are on the same page.  We're not there 100% on everything, but the 80% rule seems to be holding strong.

One thing is certain: Our Masters will know where we stand.

Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking up Arms

The Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking up Arms is required reading for Patriots today.  Our book will incorporate aspects of this important document as we calmly, patiently, and intellectually explain to our Political Class why they are wrong and what we will do about it, if we must.

Here is the link.


Bush: I have abandoned free market principles to save the free market system

Here is an important principle I have repeated a few times as we have evolved our book:

III Patriots must provide the mettle to take point, and the determination not to violate the Constitution to save the Constitution.

It matters.

13 Year Old Girl Gang Raped

I have never come across such a story dating before 1960 - and now it is commonplace.

KTLA Story here.

Unless we correct the moral compass of our Countrymen that permit this sort of behavior - from the moral relativists to the parents who do not teach their children properly, to the apologetic fools in the Nanny/Coddle segments of society, it is pointless to fight for Liberty.

A society that breeds this sort of behavior will never hold true Liberty.

Arms of the Militiaman means...


The Arms of the Militiaman extend to all weapons of the modern soldier portable by a single man.
Does this work for you?  Should it be:
The Arms of the Militiaman extend to all anti-personnel weapons of the modern soldier portable by a single man.
Where do we draw the line?  Should you have a shoulder-fired AA missile system if you can afford it?  What about a fully weaponized tank?  F-111 with full weapon suite?  C-4?  Landmines? 
The question will be one of the first to come up from challengers who get a copy of our III to Congress in their hands.  What is our position?

Someone has to say it...

From Karl Denninger: ...and a federal budget that cannot be balanced even if every program save five - Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Unemployment and other Welfare are eliminated.  That's right - cut the rest, including defense, to zero, down to the level of the guy sweeping Obama's office floor, and we still cannot balance the Federal budget.

You and I know this stuff, and our Political Class knows this stuff.  But the professional politicians earn their paychecks based on the Status Quo - a Status Quo that is murdering the republic.

We have one final round of Platform discussions for our III to Congress book, and I think we need to call for an immediate end to all Entitlements.  There are ways to do it so that our elderly poor are not left starving.  But the systems must go, now. 

Until someone puts it out there, in their faces, and pushes hard, no one with a political future will touch the topic.  So, we include it in our book and we take the hardest Right position on the field, so that Ron Paul's proposals even look modest by comparison, and give our allies some cover.

I'll put the final round of topics up at Kerodin.com for the weekend.


Gentle reminder of why 2A is an innate Right

You have surely seen a chart like this before, and perhaps even this one from JPFO.

But it never hurts to have a fresh look.

No man has the Right to infringe upon your ability to arm yourself.

Because whatever he has planned next is up to him, if you have surrendered your means of defense.


Arizona Sues...

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is counter-suing the Feds for endangering her Citizens by failing to protect the border and enforce immigration law.

Suggestion to the Governor: Act like a Governor who has endangered Citizens.  Too many Americans today reach for a lawyer to handle problems.  How about putting the Arizona Guard on the border and shoot invaders?

You'll take PR heat from outside your State, but you'll have done the job your Citizens elected you to do. 

And it won't take long before new invaders choose Texas/New Mexico/Cali rather than Arizona...

Problem solved.

Kerodin.com: Rectitude & Ruckus

The painting is Memento Mori.  The translation is Remember you must die.  A Memento Mori is literally a reminder of death - a thing that helps keep the fact that you must die in the fore of your mind, so that you can choose to take the proper decisions when confronted with challenges.  The flower will wither and die.  The skull is obvious.  The sand will pass through the hourglass.

I wrote two columns at Kerodin.com today. The first is on Rectitude, doing the right thing.  We could use more of that.  Without more people giving real weight to a proper moral compass, it will not do us a bit of good to wrestle our Liberty back from our Masters - because an immoral People can not maintain Liberty.

The second is a fresh look at the Ruckus.  We need an ...or else... in our book to Congress.  Why would they care about a book demanding our Liberties?  A book is simply more pages to be ignored, just like the Constitution.

But if we demand our Liberties back, or else...

Now we have their attention.

It is not without risk.  But, life is not without risks.  Liberty is not deserved if we are not willing to risk for it.  We are lucky in our generation - we rarely have to defend our wives and children from lions and tigers and bears, oh my.  (Arctic Patriot may be an exception to that, he lives in Grizzly Country!)  The animals in our food chain that pose threats to us in our generation wear black robes and wear suits in elected offices.

Let's defend our families.


Denninger: Tea Party new hires who sold out on PATRIOT

UPDATE: In the end, only 4 R's voted No on PATRIOT. 

Last night’s ballot saw 248 vote in favour of allowing the extension to proceed, while 176 voted against.

Just four Republicans, including Congressman Ron Paul, voted against the extension. On Tuesday 26 Republicans had voted against. The other three Republican nays were Chris Gibson (N.Y.), Raul Labrador (Idaho) and Tom McClintock (Calif.).

Denninger says it all.  And there will be more votes...an  opportunity for others to cross the lines and vote For extension.

The Washington Establishment is, apparently, capable of warping a significant portion of who we send.

So, if we are to have any chance for victory through the polls, we need to send different people.  Do we have the time?  Can they get elected?  Are there even enough real Patriots who could do the job, much less would be willing?

I am not sanguine any of it matters.

Keep swinging, but know where the Exits are located.

IRS on the March

TL is taking heat from IRS.

Connect the dots. 

When you are starting to see flak, you must be near the target!


Denninger explains the truth we all know...

Most boys learn early on that if Mom is going to count to three, then numbers 1 & 2 are free. 

Most boys also learn early in school that a threat is useless, void of merit, if it is not believed and not executed.  Bullies are notorious for calling smaller boys on their threats.  The bully isn't afraid to swing.  If the scrawny kid swings back, he earns respect.  He may still get the snot stomped out of himself, but he can take the whoopin' with a bit of dignity.

But if he threatens to punch the bully back, then fails to live up to the threat...it's over.

Karl Denninger spells out the reason why Government in Washington (and to a lesser extent, State and Local) does not waste any energy taking We the People seriously: Because they understand that we will not swing.

Denninger: The effectiveness of protest only extends as far as does the implied threat of violence.

Imply violence in America, you will get stomped by the Stack.  Initiate violence, and you will die.

That leaves us with protests...that mean nothing to our Masters.


Biden argues for High Speed Trains

High Speed Rail is the project the Left is pushing.

How 20th Century.

Technology is taking us into the air in personal car/VTOL vehicles, that is our future and it is closer than most people think.  With electronics available in the very near future, and maybe even today, such a machine will not require pilots or drivers, just a suite of electronics that will take you from your driveway to your destination.

While I have no use for Government spending on research beyond legitimate Defense, I'd prefer our Politicians at least look forward rather than backward.  And if we get Government regulations out of the way, companies like Moller (the SkyCar pictured above) could be brought to market and made affordable quickly.  Imagine the revolution for our economy as the new technology goes mainstream.  Imagine the time saved for commuters who now spend hours each day sitting in traffic.  Consider throwing a duffle bag into the trunk and getting from DC to prime hunting in the Maine woods in 90 minutes.

That's the American innovation we need to work toward.

Not high-speed cattle cars.



I may be late to this party - I was very surprised to hear Rush today endorsing PATRIOT Act.

Heritage says not re-enacting would be irresponsible.

Michelle Bachman voted FOR it.

Watch what they do, not what they say.

There are fewer real Patriots than any of us think...

Cliffs of Insanity

Alvie posts typically dead-on insight here.

The Cliffs should be a daily stop for all Patriots.
