What Have We Forgotten?


Nineteen year later, it seems that the attack on America is a fading memory. Something to be relegated to history, a footnote to be mentioned in passing.

Considering the effort being made to selectively erase parts of American history, I’m not surprised. Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.

When elected officials state that they encourage and endorse violence in the streets for political change, they are forgetting the lessons of 1930’s Germany. The result was a world war that left millions of dead, civilian and soldier alike.

When the American people elect their representatives that express allegiance with “the Mob” and support the destruction of this country’s institutions of laws, justice, and the Constitution in favor of an ideology that has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of millions of people throughout history, we have indeed lost touch with not only history, but for what America stands for.

Acceptance of the mob’s demands isn’t civility, compromise, or change for the better. It’s abject surrender of society’s will to live. History has taught that the conquered do not survive long, and only that the useful idiots are among the last to die. The resulting chaos and anarchy will destroy any country.

I watched the towers fall, and I was sickened to my core. What is happening to the America that I love is just as bad.

Stay safe, stay well, and most of all, stay prepared.

Found the following in my personal Facebook feed. Thought I would share it –

“One the most jarring moments on 9/11 came maybe 2 hours after the second tower fell. As I recall, I received a couple of phone calls, one after the other. One was from a relative and the other was from a lifelong friend.

“To my shock, both of them explained to me, almost as if they had been rehearsing their speeches for years, why America as a nation deserved the attacks.

“At the time, I was a Leftie.

“But even I, as a Leftie, could not conceive of 1) the idea that we deserved the attacks, and 2) that it was anywhere near reasonable or appropriate to be saying such a thing when we could be in the middle of a new war.

“These two people added several levels to the rage I was already feeling. About 9 months later, I came to realize that the same two people were lying about Israel.

“These attacks on Israel offended me not only personally (for some reason I have always taken attacks on Israel personally), they also offended me on a spiritual level, as it has always been part of my Biblical understanding that Jews are God’s chosen people, and Israel is blessed among nations.

“So, when I realized that my friend and family members were lying about Israel, as well as lobbing a constant barrage of verbal grenades against the United States, I changed. I realized they were filled with hatred, not ideas. And I moved to the Right side of the political spectrum, where I have been ever since.

“I give you this history, as a setup to say something that is painful for me to say.

“For me, 2020 has been one long 9/11, unfolding in horrifyingly slow motion. A malevolent nightmare from which we can not seem to wake up.

“Islam may hate us, but it is the Leftists who will destroy us.

“That is clear as day now.

“So, for me, today, it is not a time of remembrance. It is not a time of quiet resolution. It is a time of disgust heaped on top of agony and outrage.

“It is like looking up in the middle of a battle, just in time to suddenly see a friend get his head blown off, and then realizing, I must do anything, and everything I can to avenge his death.”

Bumper Sticker Logic and Other Rantings


Hello all. It’s been a while, I know. As you may remember from the last post, the workload from both the personal and professional lives has increased almost exponentially. That means there isn’t much time left to vent intelligently here.

To paraphrase a couple of people I know, I hate bumper-sticker logic except when it’s dead on. And quite frankly, some of the memes I’ve seen floating around are not only dead on, but so dead-on it hurts.

And then there are events and people that get me going so bad that I think I’m going to stroke out because of the sudden increase of blood pressure. These situations are so bizarre that common sense is nowhere to be found. Needless to say, most of this is coming from our elected officials who seem to be hell-bent on destroying this country.

So, without further ado, let’s get started.


Watched the House Managers walk the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate, and it reminded me of a perp walk…which probably isn’t too far from the truth given that Schiff and Nadler were in the lead…


Watching Pelosi sign the aforementioned Articles of Impeachment with a billion and one pens with her name engraved on them was surreal at best. After the signing, she handed the pens out to various people in attendance, smiling all the time. One would expect a solemn occasion, not a celebration with party favors.

Thought Ted Cruz said it best when he stated the Pelosi should have used crayons instead of pens…


“A Generation that has been taught to hate the country will refuse to defend it. Let that sink in…”


Anyone who is concerned with individual rights guaranteed by the Constitution should be dismayed at the situation in Virginia. For those uninformed…

Virginia elected a majority of Democrat/Socialists into both the State House and Senate, and have a Democrat as governor. The Democrat/Socialists stated first act is to declare that gun control is the first order of business.

Now not a single one of the proposed gun control measures has crime control in their scope. Instead, it’s a sweeping banning/registration/confiscation of firearms from law abiding Virginians, and has a dose of extreme protection order (aka red flag laws) on the top like a cherry. Overnight, millions of Virginians would become felons if the proposed laws pass into law.

It doesn’t matter that the proposed laws are in opposition of Virginia’s Constitution – the laws must be passed to satisfy Governor Northram’s pledge of fealty to Micheal Bloomburg, who dumped millions of dollars into the Virginia elections on the behalf of Virginian Democrat/Socialists. There must be payback once the ring is kissed…

The Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) is having their annual Lobby Day (not a protest) on the capitol grounds, but the Governor has declared an emergency stating that firearms cannot be carried on the capital grounds (it’s lawful to do so).

The Virginia Governor has declared war on the rights of the citizens of his state, and it’s anyone’s guess how this is going to turn out. I’m going to make an educated guess that some laws will pass, those laws will be challenged in court, and either be overturned on Constitutional grounds, or the People of Virginal will elect a Republican legislature the next election cycle with the expressed purpose of removing those laws.

Of course, 20/20 hindsight should tell everyone not to elect Democrat/Socialists to offices, especially those backed by out-of-state billionaires.


From an undocumented article published after the West Freeway Church of Christ shooting:

Well, it happened again in Texas. Evil walks into church with a gun and starts shooting wanting to kill. This time the good guys were prepared and ended the evil act within seconds using their own guns, killing the evil person.

We all know what happens next. The leftist media will trot out politicians and law enforcement administrators to tell us how we must pass more laws on guns, ban guns, or whatever irrelevant nonsense they can up with.

This Texas incident can teach us many things. But one thing it demonstrates very well is that it’s not the gun itself that’s the problem here. There were several guns in that church in Texas. One was used for evil and others were used to stop evil. Was one gun bad and the other gun good? Why does the left want to eliminate them all? The good guys gun did exactly what it was supposed to do; protect the flock and defeat evil. The bad guys gun was misused for evil. It is so obvious that the gun is not the problem, THE PROBLEM IS THE PERSON AND NOT THE GUN!

There is also a lesson here on gun free zones and I have written on it before. In a gun free zone, the evil person with a gun can kill indiscriminately and at will knowing there is no one there to stop him. Thank God churches are not gun free zones in Texas. We can learn from them how illogical they are and do not solve any real problems, they just make them worse.


From a comment by magno et malo lupo3:

There comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take a whoopin’. I have yet to reach that point in my life but understand that it now takes longer to recover than it did when I was 30 or so!!!

I don’t carry a gun to kill people; I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil; I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.

I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government; I carry a gun because I understand the limitations and sometimes intentions of government.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry; I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone; I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man; I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.


When the politicians start spouting off that limiting or banning firearms will reduce crime, let’s remember:

• Murder is illegal.
• Attempting murder is illegal.
• A felon owning or possessing a firearm is illegal.
• Shooting people indecriminately is illegal.
• Using firearms in a criminal manner is illigal.
• Criminals do not go through background checks (universal or otherwise) to obtain firearms.

Therefore, explain how criminals will follow new laws. Explain how new laws will make the population safer. Explain how restricting law-abiding citizens rights to firearms even more will make us safer.

If the politician cannot fully explain the above, then their reasoning for passing new gun control laws is invalid and unconstitutional.


We can ban, regulate, or make illegal to own firearms and any other weapon, but evil will still find a way to create chaos and death. London, England is a perfect example – personal ownership of firearms is highly restricted, but crimes using knives and other weapons is at near epidemic levels. Around England, home invasions are on the rise as well, and the population has no effective means to defend themselves from personal harm.


“Gun Control isn’t about crime. It’s about disarmament of people who would oppose a tyrannical socialist government. The Socialists claims that it will prevent or stop crime are simply lies to get disarmament laws passed.” – unknown


Gun free zones do not create crime free zones – quite the opposite. Criminals know that their chance of being injured or killed by a citizen with a concealed firearm is greatly reduced, therefore increasing the crime rate in that area. The criminal will bring a weapon (including a firearm) to these areas to commit their crimes.

It’s also why greater than 97% of all mass murders occur in a gun-free zone – it’s a target-rich environment without anyone being able to fight back.

My opinion is that the politicians who came up with this idea are morally and criminally liable for each and every death and injury that has occurred in these gun free zones.

Yes, I’m talking about you, Joe Biden…


If Liberal Politicians treat us this poorly when we’re armed to the teeth, just imagine what they would be willing to do to us if they take away our guns?


I believe that the Democrat/Socialit’s end game is to disarm the public, leaving the remaining arms in the hands of the police and military. For what purpose can be summed up in this quote from Lenin:

“One man with a gun can control 100 without one.”

It’s not about safety or reducing crime – it’s about control.


Moving on…

If you remember the March for our Lives in 2018, it was promoted as a grass-roots response to gun violence in the United States, primarily concerning school shootings as illustrated by the Parkland murders. However, things aren’t quite what they seem…

As reported by The Washington Free Beacon (among others):

The March For Our Lives Action Fund, a 501(c)(4) “social welfare” organization launched in the aftermath of the deadly 2018 shootings at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, is bankrolled almost entirely by large donations in excess of $100,000. The group reported $17,879,150 in contributions and grants over the course of 2018, its first year of operations. Ninety-five percent of those contributions came from 36 donations between $100,000 and $3,504,717—a grand total of $16,922,331.

The group’s reliance on a small number of large donations raises questions about its ability to turn rally-goers and supporters into donors. It also provides ammunition to gun-rights activists who have long cast the gun-control movement as driven not by grassroots supporters, but by billionaire benefactors like Michael Bloomberg.

The group’s 990 tax form shows another 38 donations totaling between $5,000 and $100,000, which together accounted for an additional $876,114 of revenue. The remainder, just 0.5 percent of total receipts, came from those giving less than $5,000.

Not grass-roots, but another attack on the rights of law abiding Americans by a few power-hungry billionaires who have nothing better to do than to screw around with ordinary people.


And speaking of Michael Bloomberg…

Everytown for Gun Safety and Mom’s Demand Action are fully backed by Bloomberg minus what little funds they receive from their members. But that’s not all…

We have to remember that while he was Mayor of New York City, he placed a ban on the sale of soft-drinks (soda) over 16 ounces. Recently, he made a statement that higher taxes benefit the poor because they’ll live longer (the logic he states supporting this statement goes against human nature).

I’ve seen the “Bloomberg for President” ads. He has made a statement that he would gladly spend a BILLION DOLLARS to defeat Trump in the 2020 elections.

I can only think that this guy is on a power trip like no other, and there is no way in hell or heaven that he should be even be allowed to have any power. Nanny Bloomberg was used as a nickname during his stint as mayor, and it still fits – he wants to control YOU.


Switching gears…the clutch is worn so there is a little grinding going on… Millennials have no idea what a clutch is, so that just went over their heads…


The big stink about trans-kids competing in sports that do not match their biological gender is completely out of hand. It’s not fair that biological females who spend countless hours training for a sport are defeated by a biological male that identifies as female.

Here’s my take, and if you don’t like it, then tell me why…

The science is of genetics, male and female. Anyone who has attended a science biology class knows this (unless it’s one of the “progressive” schools, for which you have my sincerest condolences). XX (female) and XY (male) are the genetic markers for this distinction.

The qualifiers for sports or locker rooms should be genetic, not if the person “feels” that they are another sex. Biology trumps feelings. Period

Now for a side trip…

Feelings do not override the science of genetics, no matter what you think or say. And those politicians, administrators, and parents who do not understand this simple fact are, in fact, morons.

Yes, I understand that little Johnny thinks that he should be Jane, or Diane thinks she should be Don, and that you want to make everyone around them conform to your little angel’s whims. Grow the f*** up and be a parent. Get your child help – you’re the parent, not their friend.

The condition is called “Gender Dysphoria,” and was originally listed in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) as a disorder that needed to be corrected for the person’s continued mental health. This was later changed to be a condition that would need treatment to accept the condition (including surgical procedures) due to political pressure from the LGBT community.

So find help for your child. The statistics for suicide among transgender is far above the national average for normal people due to their unresolved feelings. So if you love your kid, be the parent & make the hard choice, even if it makes you unpopular with your kid.


While we’re sorta on the subject of health care – let this sink in…

Democrat/Socialists voted to mandate government approved health care to every citizen of the United States (exempting themselves, of course). Anyone who did not sign up would be fined.

Democrat/Socialists also voted to give health care to illegal aliens for free.

So who are they really concerned with? The citizens of this country who elected them, or everyone else?


Politics was never meant to be a career choice, but a service the ordinary person would temporarily perform for the good of the country. Consider this quote from Thomas Sowell:

“Most of the founders of this country had day jobs for years. They were not career politicians…We need leaders with experience in the real world, not experience in the phony world of politics.”

This is why Donald Trump has been so effective in the past 3 years than the politicians have in the past 30+ years. It’s also why the career politicians hate him – Trump has exposed their sham.


If Donald Trump had not won the 2016 election, we would not have had confirmation of our suspicions that the political elites were not only corrupt, but the depth of their corruption.

Just look at the Biden’s ties to corruption in Ukraine, & that sham of a charity called the Clinton Foundation, and that should be all the proof you need for the political elites getting rich off the backs of the American people.


To whit (a quote from an undocumented source)…

The DNC is a self perpetuating machine of sorts. They create hideous situations then march in boldly blaming all others for their own failures.

The only solution, they proclaim, is to join them as they are the only ones that can save the day, save everyone and make everything a dreamy utopia.

There are enough ignorant, plenty of uneducated and loads of stupid people to allow this perpetuation to continue, as history clearly shows.

People leave the DNC plantation only to be replaced by others, currently the invading hordes.


In closing, just remember that the actions of the Democrat/Socialists have done since the 2016 election have been to overturn the election, thereby negating the Constitution and the will of the people. That has been their priority, not the citizens of the United States.

That should be enough for you never to vote for the Democrat/Socialist party ever again.

Christmas Eve


Hello Everyone. It’s time for the Christmas Eve post, and quite frankly, I’m really not in the mood for it. I’ll explain.

First is the personal stuff.

This past October, my Father’s Alzheimer’s progressed to the point of where he needed to be placed in assisted living. Being the only child, it fell upon me to take care of all the arrangements, move him, and close out his condo. I’m still not done with all the paperwork, and won’t be until sometime next year.

I’m not ashamed to say that I’m a bit mad at God for allowing such diseases to exist because they destroy not only the victim of the disease, but torture the loved ones with watching the victim slip away. I know God has a plan, but I just don’t see it with this disease.

Yeah, it’s real hard for me to get into the Christmas season this year…

Then there’s the political side of it.

The Founder’s expected our Representatives to be good, upstanding citizens with the unsavory element to be few and far between. Oaths of office were to keep them cognizant of their duties, responsibilities, and honor. Instead, we seem to have the Representatives owing allegiance to their political party and not to the people & country they swore to serve.

The House of Representatives voted along party lines for Articles of Impeachment against President Trump after two and a half years of the most sleaziest political witch-hunt in anyone’s memory. And then, the Articles (of which has yet to be sent to the Senate) do not list anything approaching the “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” standard set out in the Constitution. “Abuse of Power” is more of an opinion since no crime that is against the laws of the United States has been listed or proved, and “Contempt of Congress” is something that is totally made up. I’ll let the legal eagles debate all of the previous.

I personally think that the Democrats (now Socialists) should be impeached under their own standards for Abuse of Power because I believe that they have totally overstepped their authority in this and other matters. They definitely are guilty of the charge of “Contempt of the United States Constitution and Citizens Thereof.”

The bright spot in the political crap is that President Trump is fulfilling the majority of his promises. The economy is up, the unemployment is down, and everyone seems to be doing better, even his detractors. The Democrats (now Socialists) have nothing except restating the policies that Obama put into action during his Presidency, and drove the country into the tank.

While I wasn’t sure about voting for him in 2016, I certainly didn’t want Felonia Von Pantsuit in that office. I will be voting for him in 2020, and any Republican that is up for election in my district. I, like a number of other people, have had it with giving the Democrats (now Socialists) any chance at obtaining political power. The past two and a half years should show anyone with a functioning brain and a smidgen of common sense that the Democrats (now Socialists) are about getting power over you, the American Citizen, and taking every right away from you.

Yes, I’ve been notorious for not bringing uplifting messages on Christmas Eve. So let’s continue on with a final thought…

Perhaps we should remember that Christ was born into this world for the sole purpose of being that perfect sacrifice upon the cross for all of mankind’s sins – past, present, and future. Perhaps we should remember that when all others fail or turn their backs on us, or even when we are mad at Him, God will still be there to love us. Perhaps that is the real message of Christmas.

Merry Christmas, Everyone.

Operation Overlord, June 6, 1944


Seventy-five years ago, an invasion began that heralded the end of a regime that held a terrified and war-torn Europe under its heel.

CAR194404CW00003/ICP586

There are many things I could write about the sacrifice made by so many young men, but they would fall far short of the magnitude of their actions that day.

I have great uncles that were on the beaches that day, and they refused to talk about the chaos and blood shed that day. And perhaps, that says it all.

To those that were in that great endeavor, those that died and those that survived, we, as a country and a people, are in your debt.

We humbly thank you.

4th of July


Post below the Constitution.

constitution-1486010_1280

Happy 4th of July, Everyone!

We should pause at this time and give thanks for the Founders, who by signing the Declaration of Independence, were signing their own death warrants as it was treason against the Crown.  Six years later, the Constitution was signed, and this country was born.

In the years that followed, wars both domestic and abroad challenged this country’s leadership and place in the world.  And we must never forget that the struggle is constant.

Today, we face political war from a Party that states that is it for the United States and its citizens, but place the rights of lawbreakers above that of the citizenry, and attempt to enact policies and laws that would eventually doom this country.  Deception and violence are its methods, and even that is becoming obvious.  They are so emboldened with themselves and delusional, they are actually telling us what they are doing.  Anyone with half a brain should see that the Democrats have absolutely gone over the edge to the Dark side.

I am pleased to see that some Liberals and Democrats are walking away from the Democratic Party.  Look up the hashtag #WalkAway on Twitter, and you will see a growing list of people that are fed up with the Democratic Party.

Part of this credit should go to President Trump, who by merely being elected, exposed the true purpose of the Democrats – the acquisition of power over the People of the United States.  When their corrupt gal-pal failed to be elected, they began melting down into gibbering messes.  The Liberals and far left wing(nuts) have thrown (and continue to throw) a temper tantrum of truly epic proportions, and in doing so, have exposed their true agenda – which is not to be servants of the people, but to be the masters.

Mad Maxine, Petulant Pelosi, and Slimy Schumer are all making statements that attempt to discredit one of the most effective Presidents (in my opinion, at least) in fulfilling his campaign promises of a stronger, working America.  Which is, again in my opinion, is a damn sight better than any career politician has done in my memory.  Perhaps that is why they are resorting to threats and calls for protests/violence to distract from President Trump’s successes.

If Americans truly wake up and see what these clowns are doing with their surrogates in the co-conspiring media, the Democrats are toast.  But it won’t be fast, and I hate to say, I doubt it’s going to be civil or bloodless.

Regardless, relax this holiday, for tomorrow, the fight for America continues.

Christmas 2017


It is rare that I sit down at the keyboard on a holiday and write something. No fancy graphics, no witty memes, no smart comments – just a sincere, heart-felt wish that all of my family, friends, work-mates, and extended family that they have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New New.

Let us also remember that the reason for this holiday is not to find out who gave or received the biggest or most expensive gift, because that has already been given – God’s Son Jesus. He was born so he could later give the most precious gift of all to Mankind – Eternal Life in Heaven in the presence of God Almighty.

Again, allow me to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas on this most special day.

Our Fellow Man


The following showed up in my personal Facebook feed, and it states very eloquently what the deplorables do when their fellow person needs help.

Cajan Navy

Let this sink in for a minute…..Hundreds and hundreds of small boats pulled by countless pickups and SUVs from across the South are headed for Houston. Almost all of them driven by men. They’re using their own property, sacrificing their own time, spending their own money, and risking their own lives for one reason: to help total strangers in desperate need.

Most of them are by themselves. Most are dressed like the redneck duck hunters and bass fisherman they are. Many are veterans. Most are wearing well-used gimme-hats, t-shirts, and jeans; and there’s a preponderance of camo. Most are probably gun owners, and most probably voted for Trump.

These are the people the Left loves to hate, the ones Maddow mocks. The ones Maher and Olbermann just *know* they’re so much better than.

These are The Quiet Ones. They don’t wear masks and tear down statues. They don’t, as a rule, march and demonstrate. And most have probably never been in a Whole Foods.

But they’ll spend the next several days wading in cold, dirty water; dodging gators and water moccasins and fire ants; eating whatever meager rations are available; and sleeping wherever they can in dirty, damp clothes. Their reward is the tears and the hugs and the smiles from the terrified people they help. They’ll deliver one boatload, and then go back for more.

When disaster strikes, it’s what men do. Real men. Heroic men. American men. And then they’ll knock back a few shots, or a few beers with like-minded men they’ve never met before, and talk about fish, or ten-point bucks, or the benefits of hollow-point ammo, or their F-150.

And the next time they hear someone talk about “the patriarchy”, or “male privilege”, they’ll snort, turn off the TV and go to bed.

In the meantime, they’ll likely be up again before dawn. To do it again. Until the helpless are rescued. And the work’s done.

They’re unlikely to be reimbursed. There won’t be medals. They won’t care. They’re heroes. And it’s what they do.
