Yeah, That One Hurt

I haven't felt much like blogging since that Day of Blackness, November 6.  But, in spite of the broken heart I have for America, her Founding Fathers, and the Constitution, there wasn't any slitting of wrists in Livermush Land.

And I don't quite feel like weighing in on the "why we lost" debate, yet.

While I'd certainly prefer to be basking in the hard-fought glory of a win, losing round #9 on a technicality (imposed by the Russian judge) does not mean that we're not coming out of the corner for round #10.

So, how best to win round #10?  Maybe some rope-a-dope, maybe some counter-punches, but most certainly we should plan on landing a few haymakers.  I like what Mark Davis wrote, No Time To Give Up in the Fiscal Fight:

We should not sign on to any plan that involves making job creators pay higher tax rates. If we are to entertain any closing of loopholes or striking of deductions (which are also tax increases), it should be upon receipt of iron-clad commitments from Democrats for real entitlement reform and other meaningful spending cuts.

That would seem highly unlikely. Still high on the adrenaline buzz of an election that seemed to smile on their big-government aspirations, Democrats are not in the mood to make deals.

Fine. Then let them be judged by that.

I know the media will paint any dark result as the fault of Republicans. Let them. It is time to stop worrying what the media say or how young and non-white voters might recoil at first.

We must do the right thing and let the chips fall where they may. Only then can we go to those voters we so deeply want to attract and say that we did it for them. They may not have appreciated it, but when we refused to let spending get even more obscene, we said no, and we did it for all Americans.

Again, I did not send my Congresswoman to Washington to cooperate or compromise.


And every 2014 Senate candidate should start practicing the phrase, "...the flat tax will eliminate all other (illegal) taxation: income tax, estate tax, payroll tax, obaminationcare tax, capital gains tax, gasoline tax, soda tax, fat-quotient tax, internet tax, and so on..."

...Represents our last best chance to reclaim Liberty in a peaceful manner.

And if you came by here one last time, with lingering questions as to how to use your vote (whether to vote, or which way), allow me to submit these two videos.

God bless America.

And yes, I was once a Democrat, too.

Reaping What They've Sown

I'm heartbroken for the loss of life & property those in NY & NJ have incurred.  I really am.

But, part of me hopes that they're feeling the negative repercussions of their very bad choices.  And that they begin opening their eyes to the very real nature of the thuggery they casually embrace as "standard operating procedure."

Do you want to know the true nature of Unions?  Witness the fact that while you (and your gas station) goes without electricity, your Union "bretheren" are shunning outside volunteer assistance because, get this, the crews from Decatur (AL) Utilities haven't signed Union affiliation contracts, and IBEW is chasing them away.  The International Brotherhod of Electrical Workers is part of the AFL-CIO.

The company that sent those crews tells about their presence being, at first being on condition of union allegiance, then rejected:

"We made a decision late last night, to go ahead and bring our crews home."

Such is the way with a parasite: You may be in peril and you may die, but they'll just keep sucking your blood.

Dear New Yorkers and Jerseyans, may God help you.

I also have some vandalism to my truck, that I believe is attributable to some Union intolerance toward the "NOBAMA" sticker on it.  No big whup...If there weren't any cowards in the world, there'd be little need for heroes.  If a dent in the bed of the truck is the price I pay for getting shed of the UnionThug-In-Chief, so be it.

Want to see more of those Union-folks at their best?  How about these folks that are happy to steal from you and suppress your 1st Amendment rights?

Throwing Lead Downrange

There probably aren't many bigger "hawks" than me.  If there exist enemies to my country, I say, "let's go shoot 'em."  Or even, "Let me go shoot 'em."

But given the deplorable rules of engagement currently in place, I see no value to having fine warriors such as Ty Woods and Glen Doherty (and the thousands more like them, actually wearing the uniform) in harm's way.  If we can't let them be more than mere targets, let's get them out.  Bring them home, and bring the concept of actual diplomacy home too.  Because, if we can't keep Ambassadors safe, there's little point of them being there.

And to everyone who would dare cite "the fog of war" as justification for abandoning those men and the Consulate, or for even the brief hesitation to act (much less the ensuing coverup for political dithering), I say damn you to hell.

Please consider reading this, from Mad Medic, contributed to Ranger Up, entitled A Tale Of Four Heroes...excerpted:

On October 3rd, 1993, in a forgotten corner of east Africa, an RPG caught a UH-60 in just the right spot, causing the second crash of a Blackhawk that day. (There would actually be two others that suffered enough damage that they barely made it back to base). The Blackhawk, call sign Super 64, spun into Mogadishu and landed hard after a nearly 70 foot free fall. When the dust settled, the crew was either dead or dying and only the pilot, CWO Mike Durant, was able to respond when a mob started to surround his crash site.

At this moment, two Delta snipers—SFC Randy Shughart and MSG Gary Gordon—requested three times to be inserted to hold off the mob until ground forces arrived to secure the crash site. Finally, they were given the go ahead, after being informed that Bravo company 3rd Battalion 75th Rangers was in heavy contact, and 2nd Battalion 14th Infantry was just then mobilizing. It was made absolutely clear that there was no certainty when help might arrive. They went anyway.

H/T to Blackfive.
