The world is rising for freedom...while we in America are sinking into tyranny.

In America we are still at the stage where many of us believe in the promises of goodies and free stuff and protection from a wholly benevolent government. Perhaps we might even be allowed to enjoy a few crumbs that fall from the table of power and privilege at which Obama and Michelle feed their dogs in diamond necklaces.

When they aren't on multi-million dollar vacations.

We still think it is possible to grant mere men unlimited power and money -- in our name -- and they will remember our name at all. We are still stupid and childish and naive and reckless and arrogant.

The citizens of Ukraine and Venezuela are no longer able to indulge in the luxuries of stupidity and arrogance. They are farther down the road of absolute government power, having followed their particular Pied Pipers for longer...but the destination is always the same. And we will arrive at the same place if we continue in the same direction.

Do not pray for peace. Pray for freedom.


  1. They don't have a clue. When reality bites them on the ass, they'll have little left to sit on.

    1. Clueless people are often the most dangerous. We have a lot of very clueless people in this country. I just hope we have a greater number of people who are willing to weed them out when the SHTF.

  2. When they were fullest of wine and most flagrant in error,
    Out of the sea rose a sign—out of Heaven a terror.
    Then they saw, then they heard, then they knew—for none troubled to hide it,
    An host had prepared their destruction, but still they denied it.
    They denied what they dared not abide if it came to the trial,
    But the Sword that was forged while they lied did not heed their denial.
    It drove home, and no time was allowed to the crowd that was driven,
    The preposterous-minded were cowed—they thought time would be given.
    There was no need of a steed nor a lance to pursue them;
    It was decreed their own deed, and not chance, should undo them.
    The tares they had laughingly sown were ripe to the reaping.
    The trust they had leagued to disown was removed from their keeping.
    The eaters of other men’s bread, the exempted from hardship,
    The excusers of impotence fled, abdicating their wardship,
    For the hate they had taught through the State brought the State no defender,
    And it passed from the roll of the Nations in headlong surrender!

    --Rudyard Kipling, from City of Brass

    Sometimes you just have to kiple.

    1. I LOVE this!!!!! I have never read this poem. But Kipling is one of the greats and this is a GREAT poem!

  3. I would really like it if the next President has the IRS declare all the vacations where the Obamas took more than one 747 to be taxable income, above and beyond the salary and normal perks of the office. To be included: salaries of the crew of the second aircraft, fuel expended, maintenance required after use, salaries of the ground crew of the second aircraft, and salaries of any other extra personnel and equipment required.

    1. Your idea is beyond superb. It is OUTSTANDING! How about the 22 assistants Mooch has? How about she pick up the tab on all those, too?
