    Reblogged this on FOR GOD AND COUNTRY.

  2. There was some talk hear recently about Cicero and the fall of Rome and how it inspired our founders. Is there a good video or book recommendation? There may need some rebuilding to be done soon and we know the collectivists have a plan

  3. Begin at the Beginning…

    Genesis Chapter 1, King James Version (KJV)

    1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

    2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

    3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

    4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

    5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

    6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

    7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

    8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

    9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

    10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

    11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

    12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

    13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.

    14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

    15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

    16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

    17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

    18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

    19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

    20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

    21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

    22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

    23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

    24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

    25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

    26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

    27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

    28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

    29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

    30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

    31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

    King James Version (KJV)

    No crib notes will avail. No makeup tests will be forthcoming. And that’s just the Introduction.

  4. Books? I hope she finds someone who knows how to apply that knowledge.

    “What have you done? Thousands of years of building and rebuilding, creating and recreating so you could let it crumble to dust. A million years of sensitive men dying for their dreams, for what? So you can swim, and dance, and play… You, all of you, I’m going back to my own time; I won’t even bother to tell of the useless struggle and their hopeless future, but at least I can die among men!”

    We’re already in a place in time when most people in their 20s have likely never done (or even seen in person not on a screen) any of the following: changed their own oil (the shop now kicks the vehicle operator out because of policy/liability), regulated a mechanical watch (what’s a watch? even grandpa stopped wearing one after he got a smartphone and his last one was quartz), planted a garden/fruit trees, killed/gutted/quartered an animal (wild or domesticated), cooked every part of a multi-course meal from scratch with local/regional ingredients, programmed a computer (html doesn’t count), used anything with a vacuum tube (much less even know what a tube looks like), used a tool to build a tool (one held in the hand that impacts the physical world, not an “app”). Given recent news I guess this also includes using a compass in one hand and a map in the other.

    Strangely enough the 3rd world is getting just as bad with this stuff as the 1st world is given that even food is becoming more and more packaged in factories and shipped from distribution centers (including meat). From personal experience I can tell you there are Chinese kids that have never used a knife to cut COOKED meat. One friggin generation moved from the 2nd into 1st world “modern civilization” and they have already lost this. I’m sure my older generation was just as incredulous when I didn’t know how to build a capacitor from components found under my kitchen sink.

    Everyone is now a specialist in one thing. Works fine as long as the big machine keeps running. Oh, yeah, the technocrats (just as specialized as the rest) will manage that just fine….

  5. More truth…
    Incidentally, truth sounds like hate to those that hate truth.

  6. Amen to that; I adore old books and used book stores. My idea of a perfect afternoon is to wander up and down aisles, looking for treasure. Barnes & Noble, while useful, is full of too bright lights, screaming ads, and weird subjects. Used books have dignity in those slightly dim lights, with well loved covers that are hand friendly. I am so happy that I dropped cable tv.

  7. I read old books because guys like Hemingway and Marcus Aurelius, and Shakespeare have a lot more to say and say it well, than the slop that passes for literature today. I even like Rawles books, although they got kind of repetitive. And Mr. Bracken is cool. I’d druther read a good book than peck this thing anyway. Vive’ printed paper!

  8. Off topic I hope no one minds.

  9. I’ve been reading old books for a long time, especially history books. Good stuff in there!

  10. Well boys and girls, sounds like you ought to read the Holy Bible. If for no other reason read it to understand just how pussified the American church is. And there’s plenty to learn from it even for the unbeliever. You will be astounded at the simple and timeless truths.

  11. Internet Archive is a great source many of those old tomes.

  12. right now I’m studying Douglas Reed’s CONTROVERSY OF ZION. One of the better things I’ve read on the JP and, because Reed was during the first 4 decades of the 20th century a world-famous Brit journalist, full of insider stuff. Like Solzhenitsyn’s 200 YEARS TOGETHER, also re the JP, it went unpublished in-English during his lifetime.
