Today is the day that most of us have been dreading. Kim du Toit is retiring from blogging today. His comments will be open until midnight then he's all done. You may want to go over and wish him well. The internet will shrink quite a bit at midnight.

I Am Jealous

I just finally got around to watching the video of the Gun Blogger's Weekend with Todd Jarrett. Man, am I ever jealous. That looked like so much fun. I would love to have the opportunity to do that some day. The video is here if you want to check it out for yourself.

I wish that kind of facility was more common. None of the ranges I shoot at will let you do "shoot on the move" type stuff and that's really the kind of thing you need to work on.

Junk Science and Guns

So I'm reading over at the Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler and I run into this. It discusses the global cooling/warming hysteria started by the socialists then moves over to their welfare and gun confiscation agendas.

At the end of this, the author asks "how far are you willing to let them go?" which is a really great question and each needs to ask it of him/her self. Now I want to ask this question...If you've decided to draw your line in the sand at "X" point, then what happens when "X" point arrives?

See here's the thing that I see as the problem. We gun owning, constitution loving Patriots just aren't organized. We don't have a "central committee" if you will, that says "if "X" happens, a new civil war will begin (perhaps 2nd American Revolution is more appropriate) and we the people shall gather at this place". We don't have that and when just one or maybe 2 patriots stand up, they're going to be labeled as nut jobs by the press and written off. And probably carted off by the local morgue.

When do we organize? Where would we go? Has anyone thought of this? Even in the 1770's local militias were set up and organized, we aren't and if we were going to rise up against the tyranny that may yet be to come, we would have to be organized and ready because individuals would not prevail here, only an organized group.

So, pick your point at which you will no longer bend, but keep in mind that if we haven't organized yet, you may well be alone. I hope not, but, what would happen if the ball went up right now? We're all still in the pissing and moaning stage. We'd all be isolated and unable to support one another. Should we consider changing that? I don't know, wiser people than I will have to contemplate that.

Any who read this blog know that I was in the Navy and that I am very proud of my service. Some may not realize how very proud I am of anyone who has / is serving now.

Among the absolute cream of the professional crop are these guys, who need damn little introduction. Just watch the video, wipe away the tears and just say DAMN.

This is cool

I just spotted this over at Common Folk Using Common Sense and since I thought it was so appropriate, I decided that a bit of the old cut and paste was in order.

And So It Begins

Well, the Sheeple elected the Socialist. Sean Hannity is already calling it "Conservatisim in Exile" I say FUCK THAT. Let's be conservatism right in their faces. Let's not allow them to take a single step towards socalism without a fight. Why should we go into exile? Why should we just crawl off? Now is most definitly NOT the time to do that. Now more than ever, we need to be out on the front lines and writing letters (make them polite) and demanding that these people listen.

Sure, the Obamessiah won, but take a look at the popular vote. It was close. It was not an overwhelming majority. I also think that many who voted for the socialist were not voting for him as much as they were voting against Bush. I also truly believe that many of them voted based soley on race and have no clue as to the issues at stake. 44% of America knew the issues.

So, there's no reason for conservatives to hide under a rock. We need to make our voices heard loudly and clearly. Remember, there are 3 boxes in the political process, the soapbox, the ballot box and the bullet box. We fucked up the ballot box option. The soapbox is still a very valid option at this time. While I did buy a new DPMS M-4 variant yesterday and getting more toys every week, I would like to avoid the bullet box option.

Now more than ever, it is time to remember that this is a representative republic and we need to make those elected weasles answer to We the People.
