Harsh Medicine

But necessary.

Follow the directions given.

There is no cavalry coming to save you and your family.

There is no voting our way out of what is coming.

The only way out – and it is a way out – is to follow Admiral Stockdale’s advice and ruthlessly embrace reality:

“You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end – which you can never afford to lose – with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.”

Then act accordingly.

More on the topic next week.

In the meantime, had a thorough physical (including dental) lately?

Tempus fugit.

    Yep, My doctor & I talk about our latest firearms acquisitions so I always look forward to our visits, but my dentist is more into golf, and I also know a little about that too, however he is thinking of buying his first gun and if he does I’m taking him shooting!

      Heh, the reflection of Neo’s head in Morpheus’ mirrorshades in the freeze/still makes it look like he’s got google-eyes.

      Take your laughs where you find ’em these days.

    Breath of fresh air that was. Keep saying it til u can smile. Every once and a while remind yourself that you’re likely marked for imprisonment or death simply because you show up here. That metallic taste in your mouth is freedom. You are on your own and have been for some time.

    FUSA is indeed not at peace, and while the hologram persists it’s fading fast.

    Old saying about natural medicines: “Sweet in the mouth…sour in the belly. Sour in the mouth…sweet in the belly”. The truth may hurt, but it will set you free.

    • Ahhh… whiskey!

      • a man after God’s own heart, 06… whiskey…. mmm nectar. Another stockpile item… if only there were more bourbon drinkers, but alas, TPTB don’t share bourbon and cigars any longer, they drink fruity drinks or champagne, and ‘vape’ instead of cigars. They don’t eat steaks, they are ‘nutritarians’… they eat bird seed….
        It’s the end of the world as we know it.

        • Heh! Brother, our world only ends when we do.

          Live long enough to thwart and end the bastards.

          Grandpa: A shot of Knob Creek rye, a Bud or MGD back is a good way to end a stressful day. I’ll pass on the cigar. Cigars give me the hiccups!

        • We have a distillery on the ranch.
          Distilleries have value.
          Support your local distillery.

  5. I came to that very conclusion many years ago and the fact that the pos occupying the white house has been allowed to wreak havoc on this nation is proof positive that I was right. The DC crowd, all of them, have demonstrably worked to undermine our nation, faith and culture. And it’s about time for them to reap their rewards.
    What’s funny to me is they think we (what barry would call the bitter clingers) are fractured and unorganized. Nothing could be further from the truth. There are millions of us, well prepared, organized and motivated.

  6. Every American should learn about James Stockdale, and his experiences as a soldier, and POW held by the NVA. It is my belief that one reason our country has gone all to hell is that our youth are never taught about the true meaning of a man, about bearing and morality, and of stoichism. Todays youth, and most adults are marshmellows, weak, unfit, sickly, and moral degenerates. The root cause is Liberalism. Yes, we produce great soldiers, but even General Petraeus lacked a foundation of morality. America today is still militarily strong, but that strength is due to the efforts of men no longer with us. Todays political leadership is really disgusting. One look at Obama and his Cabinet, including SECDEF Ash Carter and you know we are in trouble. Until America returns to its roots of strong fit and morally sound children, led by strong fit and morally sound adults she will sink further into the depths toward Hell.

    What???????

    You mean that Donald Trump isn’t going to save us all, and Make American Great Again™?

    But everyone on Conservative Treehouse says that Trump was sent by God, and as soon as Trump wins in November, everything will change!

    The establishment will get kicked out, and freedom will reign from sea to shining sea!

    Are you saying that they’re wrong?
