I haven’t written much in eons but that doesn’t mean that I won’t again sometime soon.  That being said, there is truly no excuse as to why I haven’t written much.  I guess it boils down to just having other priorities that got in my way.

In any case, I just wanted to throw this out there … not that it means much about anything … but since writing is cathartic for me and how I voice some of my feelings and stresses … I sometimes get the itch to write about something.  Sometimes I take long breaks from it, and sometimes I just write and write and write and it’s hard to stop.

So, loyal semi-followers, don’t give up on me.  I can feel some stories coming on soon.

I don’t know who originally wrote this or I’d give credit where credit is due.  It was anonymous when I received it as an email forward from a friend.  I generally don’t use email forwards but this is not only telling of current societal and cultural issues but also sad and unfortunately right on the mark for many that are your basic salt-of-the-earth citizens.

I USED TO THINK I WAS JUST A REGULAR GUY, BUT …

 

I used to think I was just a regular guy, but …..

I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist.

I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist.

I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobic.

I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business.

I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.

I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby.

I am older than 60, which makes me a bit less than I used to be.

I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary.

I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.

I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.

I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.

I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant.

Recently, a sick old woman called me and my friends “a basket of deplorables”.

I need to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, newfound challenges in my life and my thinking!

I just can’t imagine or understand what’s happened to me so quickly!

Funny . . . it’s all just taken place over the last 8 years!

And if all this crap wasn’t enough to deal with, I’m now afraid to go into either restroom!

The excerpt below was sent to me by a friend.  I share for 5 reasons:

 

  1. I live in California.
  2. I am a SMART woman, at least in my not-so-humble opinion.
  3. I have never voted for Dianne Frankenstein and never will.
  4. Yes, California seems to have a penchant for electing obnoxious and totally foolish women.
  5. My husband is from Maine (note the reference to Maine below).

 

Therefore … I offer the below idiocy.

 
*~*~*

 

 

Quote of the day by “Dianne Feinstein”:

 

Dianne Feinstein:  “All vets are mentally “ill” in some way and government should prevent them from owning firearms.”

 

Yep, she really said it in a meeting in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee … and the quote below from the LA Times is priceless.  Sometimes even the L.A. Times gets it right.

 

Kurt Nimmo:  “Senator Feinstein insults all U.S. Veterans as she flays about in a vain attempt to save her anti-firearms bill.”

 

Quote of the Day from the Los Angeles Times:

 

“Frankly, I don’t know what it is about California , but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office.  I’m not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including  Maine, even comes close.  When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we’re Number One.  There’s no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on ‘Macbeth’.  The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab.

You don’t know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words.”

Columnist Burt Prelutsky, Los Angeles Times

 

 

*~*~*

 

 

I actually agree with the LA Times for a change.  That’s all I have to offer.

A very wise friend stated the below comment recently and, while I know the sentiment has been around a while, and while I have definitely heard it before, I want to reiterate it as the thugs and goons in Washington DC try to take away my 2nd Amendment RIGHT.

“The best offense is a strong defense.”

 


 


 

 

 

Yes. 

“The best offense is using a strong defense.”

Remember that.

 

 

 

The best offense is a strong defense.

So … with that … I offer the below … and wish to state to BO and his gang of cronies and thugs the following:

1.       You aren’t *MY* president because you don’t love and PROTECT this country and her citizen’s rights. 

2.       You don’t seem to understand the Constitution as much as you like to say you do.

3.       This is my 2nd Amendment RIGHT. It’s not a gift. It’s a RIGHT.

 PERIOD

(By the way … my stating “PERIOD” means something.  Roy and I are quite well aware that your stating that means absolutely positively NOTHING.  When you state “period”, it means the “period” followed an outright LIE.)

 

 

The best offense is a strong defense.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE BEST OFFENSE

IS

A STRONG DEFENSE.

As the #WhiteHouse occupiers (#BO and #MoochObama and their kiddos) go on yet another taxpayer-funded lavish 2 week Hawaiian holiday which the vast majority of the American public can’t afford due to being taxed into oblivion and which they can’t even begin to imagine ever doing or affording, I offer these two pictures to the idiot that blames everyone but himself. This is all I have to offer to the people who live in the #WhiteHouse but wouldn’t know what “being Presidential” or “Leadership” mean. I’ll give them one clue anyway: “The Blame Game” is not part of it. I will never consider them to be “President” or “First Lady” because neither of them know how to act the part … and believe me … they could be black, white, green, purple, or orange with turquoise polka-dots … I’d still feel the same about their demeanor and attitude. They simply are not worthy of the title or my respect.

Anyway … Merry Christmas to my friends and family that truly know what love and caring and strength and purpose and law and order are all about.

These #imposters do not. They only know how to take from and use others. Karma will not be pretty on them.

I’m now done with my rant.

I learned long ago to smile and carry on … NO MATTER WHAT. The reason I write about this today doesn’t matter … but I have my own personal reasons. What matters is to carry on and hold my head high. I will never let others knock me off my course in life or tear me down or try to make me feel inferior. They can deal with the karma and the consequences all on their own. I don’t choose to participate. Leave me out of it all. They’ll be happier and so will I.

Smile
Though your heart is aching.
Smile
Even though it’s breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky,
You’ll get by
If you smile
Through your fear and sorrow.
Smile
And maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun
Come shining through
For you.
Light up your face with gladness.
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear
May be ever so near.
That’s the time
You must keep on trying.
Smile.
What’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you’ll just smile.
That’s the time
You must keep on trying.
Smile.
What’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you’ll just smile.
Nat King Cole

I get really tired of people on one side of the political aisle that want to silence those of us that think differently and dare to speak our minds.

20140716-062542-23142396.jpg

Guess what, any detractors and censors out there? Just ask my family and friends. I will say what I believe to be true NO MATTER WHAT … till the end of time.

20140716-062915-23355747.jpg

The politically correct liberal thought police out there will never stop that. I am not now and I never will be one of their stooges. Period. (Oh and guess what, gang? *My* “period” truly MEANS “period” … unlike the idiot BO currently occupying the White House.)

20140716-063445-23685643.jpg

PERIOD

THE END
