A few 'Wolverines' think I am too pessimistic.
I think they are too optimistic. Pulling the trigger of an AR is not sufficient to understand when and why it is prudent or justified to pull that trigger.
America has lost -- because we have allowed our youth to become ignorant, and we have allowed our youth to grow into adults who can not critically reason or be intellectually honest.
Heh. If you're a pessimist then what am I?ReplyDelete
I guess we are a pack of pessimists.Delete
That's fine by me.Delete
I would rather die in good company,
than live in bad company.
ToneDeaf, I believe the correct term is a peck of pessimists, or is it, a peck of pickled pessimists. Or make that a bushel...whatever.Delete
For what its worth.ReplyDelete
"because we have allowed"ReplyDelete
"and we have allowed"
Hope that's not the start of a pattern. Leads straight to Loserville.
I read that essay LT, very moving. So how'd that ride go?
I remain non-convicted, Jim. Which is not to say that they haven't tried - but even the remnants of our justice system provide decent cover, for a man who can 'think on his feet'. the best way to endure a punch, is not to be there when it arrives.Delete
I guess the real question is, for myself or any other true patriot, "for what would you be willing to sacrifice yourself?" Or in other words, "what is the 'value of the target' for which you would accept a mission, knowing that the chances of your surviving as a free man thereafter were so low as to be negligible?"

America today, like most "modern civilizations" is based on cowardice.ReplyDelete
It's so easy to civilize by teaching cowardice.
You water down the standards
which would lead to bravery.
You restrain the will.
You regulate the appetites.
You fence in the horizons.
You make a law for every movement.
You deny the existence of chaos.
You teach even the children
to breathe slowly.
But this is not actually civilization...
Call it what it is - this is Slow Death.
And we are indeed dying of it.
The civilizations of old knew Chaos;
And gave Chaos it's place, which cannot be denied.
They overcame exactly because
they were realists -
they did not delude themselves.
And they endured
because they were not so foolish
as to deny that nature
takes, even as she gives.
They did not withhold from the future,
that which it requires to come into being.
And when that wisdom left them
They each tried to possess
that which is and must ever remain
transitory and free.
They tried, and they died.
It is not good fortune, to live in the twilight of a particular civilization. But regardless, it has happened to many, many before us. Who are we to object?
Each of us will do what we must.
Some will speak,
some will fight,
some will die,
some will live,
and some will find it
within themselves to lead.
But all will adapt,
in one way or another.
It is inevitable.
Death is as much an adaptation to changing circumstances as any of the other options - but it is an option which conveys no further options. By this we distinguish it.
The rolling stone gathers no moss,
Until it comes to rest in the valley.
Let this be your fate.

Your splurging on more reloading equipment

that you are not feeling any pain.

Another ally has suggested a boycott campaign against Enemies of Liberty - do you think this would be a good place to start? Should we direct our disgust at Wideners & Ammoland - just enough to let them know we will never buy from them again - and we will actively denounce them across the internet - if they advertise on a welfare titty site?Delete

Welfare Lane has put him

I guess the welfare state and FSA
