Read both GVDL and WeaponsMan’s take on the same subject.
You don’t have enough friends, food, or firepower.
“You don’t have enough friends, food, or firepower.” Second that. If there is not a real collapse, it’ll be a slow drip of everything you have using things like obamacare(this is already happening). my guess is the powers that be are actually hoping for the slow drip, that wouldn’t cause them to any inconveniences in their lifestyle.
But we are at the end of America, relecting Obama proved it, just have to see if it turns into socialist England, socialist mexico or venezula.
On 5 and 6 June 1944 elements of the 82nd and 101st Airborne Division parachuted or landed in gliders behind enemy lines in Normandy, France. They didn’t have enough friends, food, or firepower, but they could not be restrained from climbing into their assigned aircraft, and even the thought of not being able to go made grown men start to cry.
Attitude, the operative word in your observation is “men”. Sadly these days they appear in short supply. Its part of the reason we are in this mess today.
Agree on the shortage of Men.
But, when you find them, they are as ten is to one.
There are no men in Twin Falls, ID.
You also left out that there were a great many of them with a common purpose, training and long supply lines. No NSA, FBI or other dominate agencies to monitor their thought process and to consider them terrorists: just saying – different time, different place and much different purpose. Gotta call things the way they are (or were) ………….
The character of those Paratroopers who jumped into France, the 2nd Rangers who climbed Pointe Du Hoc, and every other GI who participated in WWII combat simply does not exist in those numbers today; a tough act to follow when 16 million people were in the WWI era military. At least the Conservation Corps required men to work in exchange for money; when its being handed out now days.
WWII era GIs were able to set aside their differences (except racial segregation), they had thicker skins (they weren’t as politically correct), and they were willing to give up their youth and many gave their lives for cause of Individual Liberty.
Can America to coalesce like that again? It would apparently take an event on the magnitude of an extraterrestrial invasion; the way we nit-pick who is in our in-groups and out-groups (hemp rope club).
Its going to take unholy alliances if Individual Liberty is to survive.
Ne Desit Virtus
thanks for the enlightenment. I did not not know the War to Save the Soviet Union was about “preserving individual liberty”. Actually, thanks for the neo-con comic relief. No doubt the next War (and the one after that, fought with fists and clubs) will also be about “preserving individual liberty”.
There were even some who committed suicide because they could not get into the U.S. Armed Forces.
That is very good point Attitude.
Having a clear objective and clearly defined allies and enemies helps. We don’t exactly have that clarity. It’s generally clear who most of the enemies are, but not entirely. Likewise, it’s not exactly clear who is on which side. And objective? We have “Restore the Constitution,” “Exterminate most of the populace” and pretty much every possible point in between.
Reblogged this on ETC., ETC., & ETC..
It really does come down to ego; especially for the elites. THEY are the smart people. THEY are the people with a plan. THEY alone, can bring uptopia to fruition for all of the masses. THEY are the ones that are educated, concerned, and compassionate.
All of us need to take current events very, very, seriously. We are either buying time or the SHTF. I’d prefer buying time, cuz I personally would like more time. But then, the coming festivities are waiting on no one. So, preparation is the operative word.
PS- you can learn a lot from graveyards. Walk through one sometime.
I believe all of us would prefer more time, prep/plan/train… but I don’t believe we’re going to get much more. A good deal of this shit happened on my watch, sadly; and I’m not one to leave it to the kids and grandkids to unfuck this.
And despite my best efforts, I’m not getting younger. The sooner the party starts, the better it will be. I wish we didn’t have these troubled times…
Wishin’ ain’t gonna make it so.
then vote for Mrs. Clinton. She’ll bring it on. Real soon.
“The possibilities are endless once you start jailing bankers.”
REYKJAVIK, ICELAND — The party that could be on the cusp of winning Iceland’s national elections on Saturday didn’t exist four years ago.
Its members are a collection of anarchists, hackers, libertarians and Web geeks. It sets policy through online polls — and thinks the government should do the same. It wants to make Iceland “a Switzerland of bits,” free of digital snooping. It has offered Edward Snowden a new place to call home.
Bring back socially sanctioned DUELS.
would go a long way in weeding out the infestation of cowardly wannabe Bolsheviks (I include the “Marxist Muslim Jihadists” here of course)…
All of these super-cowardly ARMIES of ideologues who cannot stand on their WORDS will always resort to shooting masses of people in the back of the head and dumping there bodies in a trench.
Only despicable “Godless” COWARDS do political-homicide wholesale and on an expedited schedule to unarmed masses.
Just for amusement let’s use OUR diversely cognitive thought process and investigative resources to examine the possible Who, Why, Where, When, What, How of possible scenarios, when contemplating socially sanctioned dueling.
What could this look like? What kind of spectacle would “Dueling” ultimately manifest itself as if socially sanctioned?
To the Death or Not to the Death? Quarter or no Quarter?
My first flash (as is yours most likely) is upon Hamilton/Burr, but then immediately I turn my “imagination” to Kirk/The Gorn (Star Trek)…
then instantly I jump to the significant drop in NFL ratings, and I flash on the thought that People would pay ‘billions’ to see a Putin/Obama cage match!
How ’bout Jousting?…
directly to The Hunger Games (teams)…
“The Duel”; tanker tuck vs sedan (movie,Dennis Weaver)…
see how fun that (IMAGINATION) is!
Do your own research (also fun) on the historical aspects of “Calling Out” another human being to the possible outcome of loss of life, by mutual consent.
Even though I bring this subject up in a “tongue-in-cheek” fashion, at this point in history I believe that a lot of people out there would still view the outcome of such an event as; ‘what YOUR MAKER SEES as JUSTICE”.
You might even consider socially sanctioned dueling as a Micro/Macro reflection of the Massacre at Braziers,
“Caedite eos. Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius”
“kill them all, God will know his own”
one BIG?GIANT OK CORRAL!
Mao was so right, “political power comes out of the barrel of a gun”…
And the EXTREME result of death to one or more of the participants in a dueling festivity will most certainly change the deceased’s ideology.
I bring this up as a demonstration (to myself) of my sometimes eccentric diverse thought process,; I waited two years to bring up this somewhat obtuse, yet directly related aspect to the Second Amendment.
I have read just about everything in the news from at least seven sources (plus others of interest daily) or the past 18 years…
I honestly haven’t seen this aspect of the 2nd ever mentioned or discussed.
I do know that dueling was just coming back en vogue with Officers at the time of our American Revolutionary War. I am not sure if any aspects of dueling are eluded to in the Federalist Papers.
WE do know that the 2nd Amendment is NOT about deer hunting. It is about stopping tyrannical ideologies it their jack-boots.
Our Founding Fathers realized that the Social Justice Warriors of of the future were going to TRY to make FREE SPEECH, “illegal”.
Dueling could help ALL the rest of us “innocents” avoid being maimed, spindled, and mutilated in an ALL OUT war against CENTRALIZED “ONE WORLD” TYRANNICAL RULE.
It’s either Dueling or World Wide Revolutionary War!!!
(yes, mega hyperbole there ha ha
…get over IT all ready PC Principal)…
Back to the Ghost Dance
remembering Russell Means and Patrick Tillman
And no Gladiator Champions for the “nobility”!
Excellent commentary, both.
Both also fail, seemingly, to properly assess that the problem we face is not in .gov in and of itself, but in the black-hearted bastards that slither in the swamp of DC with nothing but hatred and ignorance toward their fellow man.
Things that slither usually end up under a boot heel.
Talk about being tone-deaf. Here is someone decrying the centralization of power, who quotes Lincoln with approval. Also quotes Franklin, one of the main proponents of the (counterrevolutionary) 1787 coup d’etat.
what did you expect? Gates of Strudel is a Zion-site. And WM is an ex-Imperial Stormtrooper who thinks we are being attacked by ROOOOsya.
I’m sure being kicked off WM’s site three different times for cause hasn’t colored your opinions much.
It is good to see others awakening to the lie that is Lincoln. Fucking heathen of the first order he was.
