    Confederates AND Lincoln!

    I’d sure like to know what’s REALLY going on here, too. Could he really be a faux patriot – more concerned with fortune than sacred honor?

  • April 16, 2014 at 10:22am

    I wholeheartedly agree.

    However, as of this moment, we haven’t had a Lexington/Concorde-type event (thank Heaven!). Should the BLM/federal law enforcement return to the Bundy’s and become violent (over a civil judgement – wholly unacceptable!), that may be the moment: the modern “shot heard ’round the world”.

    Until then (or something similar), we must remain vigilant and hold fast. He who fires first, loses IMHO.

    That’s from the Declaration, bro – not the constitution.

    Just sayin’. ;-)

  • April 16, 2014 at 10:12am

    Yeah . . . I’ll listen to a guy who can’t even spell martial.

    May your chains rest lightly upon you, my friend.

    I too wonder what is going on in Glenn’s head, sometimes. He spoke so righteously (and correctly) about the Declaration and, in fact, the OBLIGATION of free men to resist tyranny, yet now, he’s back-peddling at full steam.

    HOWEVER, those inciting violence and aggression know not what they seek and have obviously never seen the ravages of war. To actually wish for such a thing in the US is utter madness. The time may arrive when such a thing becomes absolutely necessary. That’s true and I truly fear it will one day become wholly unavoidable. But, we’re not there yet – not by a long shot – and those calling for revolution should be shunned and avoided.

    By the way, Glenn, where does the constitution authorize the federal government to “own” land (let alone, the vast swaths of valuable real estate in the western states)? Short answer: it doesn’t – military facilities, government offices and border posts notwithstanding.

    Yup. Funny how these “study results” suddenly are hitting the news, isn’t it?

    It’s all bull****.

    That said, I do think pot use among kids can indeed effect the way they think and interfere with their ability to absorb/hold knowledge. However, that can be said of many other, far more damaging substances – not the least of which are drugs prescribed for everything from depression to ADD.

    As with most things, education and moderation are the keys to a happy, healthy life.

    Too bad my wife has to leave her teenie-weenie keychain pepper-spray at home because it’s considered an “illegal, offensive weapon” in DC.

    And my everyday-carry pocketknife is banned, too!

    I swore I’d never step foot in DC again after we were refused admittance to the Air & Space Museum for those very items (when we attended another pro-2A rally there a few years ago) and “threatened with arrest” by the idiot security guard! The regular DC cop who was present was sympathetic, though (thank God!), but I’ve still got the bitter taste in my mouth.

    The way he said it made it seem as though the armed men were going to “round up & herd” the women to the front as human shields/cannon fodder.

    Pretty stupid.

    Now, if moving the women up front was a strategy the women were on-board with, that’s different. But, this fool should’ve said THAT – not come across like women are only useful as martyrs.

    While this rancher might not actually be the innocent golden-boy, stand-up-for-your-rights-against-a-totalitarian-government, folk-hero many (righteously) wish to rally ’round, the good news is there are indeed freedom-loving, patriotic citizens who’ve woken up and are willing to “pledge their lives, fortunes and sacred honor” in mutual defense against an overly-aggressive, unelected government bureaucracy and it’s hostile, armed agents.

    And sure. In the face of a rather large armed/ready resistance, the government backed down – for now – this time. But, as BLM says, “This is not over”.

    The reality is the government can easily out-last Bundy’s supporters – nabbing him when it suits them. It will be interesting to see what happens then.

    Localities also get little to no revenue from such systems. Rather, these camera systems are basically a racket with the companies making enormous profits while towns and cities get the shaft.

    I’d like to see them all go away. Sadly, they won’t be going anytime soon as they pad the pockets of “all the right people”.

    I’m amazed they haven’t removed the statue of Gen. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain from the campus!

    After all, he wore a uniform (gasp!) and fought for republican ideals under a Republican Administration! I’d venture to guess he’d not approve of gay marriage nor most any other of Bowdain’s PC cause de jours, either!

    An honest-to-goodness class act, Chamberlain personifies everything Bowdain College (today) is not: personal sacrifice, moderation, strong Faith AND the personal integrity to honor & respect his former enemy. His stunningly gracious treatment of surrendering Confederate troops at Appomattox is the stuff of legend and SHOULD awe and inspire Bowdain students – yet, I bet only a handful know of it. His “The Passing of the Armies” should be required reading in high schools nationwide, IMHO.

    Few know it, but Chamberlain overcame s severe stutter and became one of the most revered speakers of his era. No doubt, he’s rolling over in his grave for the socialist cesspool his beloved alma mater has become.

    @ GoodStuff:

    You seem to forget that Old Glory flew over slave states before, during and AFTER the US Civil War.

    Or, could it be you’re talking out your ass and don’t even know the Emancipation Proclamation ONLY applied to states in open rebellion against/seceding from the federal government?

  • April 11, 2014 at 6:53am

    My ONLY criticism is his smile after ‘warning’ his sister’s murderer. I’m not sure that I can explain why, exactly. But, it seemed to lessen his sincerity somehow and could be used by his opponents to imply he’s capitalizing on her death for political reasons (career). And let’s face it, there are a LOT of sheep out there who will immediately dismiss him as a serious candidate the instant they see his Glock.

    That doesn’t mean I wouldn’t support him were he running in my state. It just means I think he could’ve handled it differently and still gotten the same, strong, pro-2A message across while also being decidedly pro law and order/rule of law.

    Just my $.02.

  • April 11, 2014 at 6:15am

    Boy! I hope this gets referred to the DOJ for prosecution!

    Oh. Wait a minute . . . . :-/

  • April 11, 2014 at 6:08am

    I bet we won’t see this on CBS “News” anytime soon either, huh?

  • April 11, 2014 at 5:56am

    “My son doesn’t trust police officers now.”

    Smart kid. But, what took him so long? :-/

  • April 11, 2014 at 5:53am

    Pray tell. How exactly do you “prove” a ghost tickled your feet?

  • March 26, 2014 at 5:54am

    How long till the left in America are having book burnings, I wonder?

  • March 25, 2014 at 9:36am

    What’s the summarized version of the First Amendment?

    “In America, you’re allowed to speak your mind – but, only in designated free speech zones and only as long as your words don’t offend anyone”? :-/

    Look into the Paleo-diet, Glenn. And watch a documentary called, “The Perfect Human Diet”.

    I know, you’re getting diet advice out the ying-yang. Hopefully, much is about the pros of paleo! I realize you’re not an evolution guy, but we evolved eating mostly meat, fish and some green vegetables and that’s what your body is craving. Please, as you always sway, “Do your own homework!”

    Godspeed, Glenn. Get well soon!
