Utterly fucking amazing.
No, its not amazing that I was given a bottle of booze and a book, she knows me pretty well. Not even the title of the book or the subject matter is surprising,though she knew I could have written the book myself.
The book is "How to Survive the end of the world as we know it" by James Wesley, Rawles founder of the SurvivalBlog, a fantastic resource.
None of that is amazing at all, the woman knows me well, knows I love information of this type, (the views and opinions of another survival instructor are always useful) and she knows I'm a sucker for a bottle of top end whiskey. What took me by surprise is a bit complicated, but it came next...
I never, ever, pass up a chance to mention to ANYONE, what a total and complete failure Barack Hussein Obama is and that was BEFORE he became president of the U.S.A. What he has accomplished since is mind boggling, (not a damn thing) he hasn't done a single positive thing since the ELECTION, never mind the from the time of the oath. The United States would have been far better off just closing the white house for 4 years, the results would have been better.
During the course of the night, she once again told me how much she liked Obama, I of course laughed and ask her what I ask all of them, "So, what is it you like about him? Could it be his long list of accomplishments? His love of the United States and its people? How about the way he has honored his oath of office?"
ALL liberal respond to these questions in exactly the same way. Anger. They can not refute the charges I make or answer the simplest of the questions. I of course, got smacked, its ok, she has whacked me for almost 30 years now when I stymi her. I kind of like it.
Still not the surprising part. The surprise came next. "SHE", the liberal, the Obama supporter, told me that she feared the immediate collapse of our society and as the oldest male in our "group" and with my survival knowledge, it was my responsibility to see that the rest of the group was prepared.
Wait... you see whats coming, (and I don't disagree with this vision) yet you fail, nay, REFUSE to acknowledge the CAUSE? You fear the effects of your own delusional politics and want me, a Right Wing nut-job, a reactionary, a member of "The Mob" to save your ASS?
Its what guys like me do, its what we have to do when faced with cleaning up after people that suffer from mass hypnosis and in many cases, just plain stupidity. People like me fight the wars that you complain so bitterly about, though it was our choice to fight them. We stand up and say whats on our minds, while others hide behind the wall of "Correctness" we say what you want to say, but lack the courage. No, the only time you can speak out against anyone or anything is when you talk about US.
Needing a rescue? A knight on a White Charger? AGAIN?
This time, its gonna cost ya.
authors note: I have found this in almost all parts of the country and as a long haul trucker, I do visit ALL PARTS. Its not just my friend, I see liberals all over that are starting to react the same way... "the end is near, but the we refuse to admit that WE helped usher in the cause." ("Now, get off your Conservative ASS and SAVE US")

'In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: who lost Europe ?'
Here is the speech of Geert Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom, the Netherlands , at the Four Seasons, New York , introducing an Alliance of Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem .
Thank you very much for inviting me.
I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic. We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe. This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe.
First I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe . Then, I will say a few things about Islam. To close I will tell you about a meeting in Jerusalem .
The Europe you know is changing.
You have probably seen the landmarks. But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world. It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration.
All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen. And if they are, they might regret it. This goes for the police as well. It's the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corners. The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe . These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe , street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city.
There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe . With larger congregations than there are in churches. And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region. Clearly, the signal is: we rule.
Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam , Marseille and Malmo in Sweden . In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim. Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods. Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities.
In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims.
Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils. In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims. Non-Muslim women routinely hear 'whore, whore'. Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin.
In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin . The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity.
In England sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves. Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels , because he was drinking during the Ramadan.
Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II. French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya , Israel . I could go on forever with stories like this. Stories about Islamization.
A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live in Europe . San Diego University recently calculated that a staggering 25 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now. Bernhard Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century.
Now these are just numbers. And the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate. But there are few signs of that. The Pew Research Center reported that half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France ... One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks. The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of British Muslim students are in favor of a worldwide caliphate. Muslims demand what they call 'respect'. And this is how we give them respect. We have Muslim official state holidays.
The Christian-Democratic attorney general is willing to accept sharia in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority. We have cabinet members with passports from Morocco and Turkey .
Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behavior, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots. Paris has seen its uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus. I call the perpetrators 'settlers'. Because that is what they are. They do not come to integrate into our societies; they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam. Therefore, they are settlers.
Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighborhoods, their cities, their countries. Moreover, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored.
The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet. His behavior is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized. Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem. But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages - at the same time. Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed. Mohammed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza. If it is good for Islam, it is good. If it is bad for Islam, it is bad.
Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion. Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins. But in its essence Islam is a political ideology. It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person. Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life. Islam means 'submission'. Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.
Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam 'the most retrograde force in the world', and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran. The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor. I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times. I support Israel . First, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz, second because it is a democracy, and third because Israel is our first line of defense.
This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam's territorial advance. Israel is facing the front lines of jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines , Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan , Lebanon , and Aceh in Indonesia . Israel is simply in the way. The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.
The war against Israel is not a war against Israel . It is a war against the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel , Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest. Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.
Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities. But if Israel were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values. On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam. They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed. The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning. It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination. If they can get Israel , they can get everything. So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islamization as a 'right-wing extremists' or 'racists'. In my country, the Netherlands , 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II. And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat. Yet there is a danger greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last man standing. The lights may go out in Europe faster than you can imagine. An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for America - as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs. With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome , Athens and Jerusalem .
Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts. My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives. All throughout Europe , American cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home, and whose memory we cherish. My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians. We can only hand over this hard won liberty to Europe 's children in the same state in which it was offered to us. We cannot strike a deal with mullahs and imams. Future generations would never forgive us. We cannot squander our liberties. We simply do not have the right to do so.
We have to take the necessary action now to stop this Islamic stupidity from destroying the free world that we know.
Please take the time to read and understand what is written here, Please send it to every free person that you know, it is so very important.

This is my first Grand Child, a daughter named Eowyn Rose.
Eowyn was born prematurely due to a condition called Preeclampsia.
The condition showed up suddenly and extremely in about the 24th week. Uncontrollable blood pressure in my daughter caused the doctors to take the baby after only a couple of days. The condition was looking like it would take both the lives of the mother and baby otherwise.
Eowyn was born at 1 lbs, 2 oz and was approximately 10 3/4 inches long. To get a grasp of the size, in this picture, her head is about the size of a racket ball.
Eowyn is a fighter, like the rest of her family she has not given up for even a second. The doctors at this particular center are very experienced with this condition and administered a steroid almost immediately to the mother. This steroid allowed Eowyn's lungs to clear and begin working while still in the womb.
She attempts to breath on her own now, so much so that she fouls up the machines trying to breath for her and has to be mildly sedated. All in all, she is doing as well as can be expected and we have the highest of hopes.
The love shown to her and to us from friends around the world has been inspiring and more appreciated that any of you could know.
Now to the end purpose of this post.
Eowyn's treatment is expensive, it requires the most experienced of Doctors and Nurses to even give her a fighting chance.
Can you imagine this situation under a state run health care system? Can you hear the death panel's decision?
Yeah, me too.

Lou Pritchett is one of corporate America's true living legends- an acclaimed author, dynamic teacher and one of the world's highest rated speakers. Successful corporate executives everywhere recognize him as the foremost leader in change management. Lou changed the way America does business by creating an audacious concept that came to be known as "partnering." Pritchett rose from soap salesman to Vice-President, Sales and Customer Development for Procter and Gamble and over the course of 36 years, made corporate history.
AN OPEN LETTER TO
Dear President Obama:
You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.
You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.
You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.
You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.
You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.
You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core.
You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.
You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.
You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America ' crowd and deliver this message abroad.
You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.
You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.
You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.
You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.
You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations.
You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.
You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.
You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.
You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.
You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O'Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.
You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.
Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.
This letter was sent to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it. Big surprise. Since it hit the internet, however, it has had over 500,000 hits. Keep it going. All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing. It's happening right now.

I live in the heat of the Arizona desert, Bradley lives in the wooded beauty of Virgina. We could not be farther apart in our locals and in the lands we love. I think our dis-similarities end there.
We believe in a free America. In a place formed, shaped and promised by the works and deeds of men long gone to their maker. We are as effected by those deeds today as men were in the 1770s.
For me, it is well worth the fight we now fight. I'm certain that Brad feels the same way.
Both of us are working men, from working stock, the builders and shapers of this country. This is the first thing that draws me to Bradley. His solid belief in the principles that created America is another.
I bumped into Brad briefly tonight, online, he left me with a link to a speech he gave in Danville VA. on the 24th of June. Its a long read and worth every moment of it.
This speech separates Bradley from the "run of the mill" candidates that we have suffered with for way to many years.
"To explain, briefly, our political system is broken. The entire concept of the lifelong public servant has been a destructive force in this country, for the most part. A person becomes entrenched in the constant backbiting and convenient campaign promises that soon become broken ones through “no fault of my own.” These are precisely the age-old political staples that have led to the lowest Congressional approval ratings in recent memory. These people we keep sending back to Washington are not public servants in their own minds, but rather see themselves as our masters."
As I said, its well worth the read and I encourage you to take the time.
Given in Danville VA 24 June 2009.
This is the Speech that he "kicked off" his run for congress with, powerful stuff Brad!
Those of you looking to help rebuild the conservative base in congress, well here is a damn fine place to start.
Bradley Rees for Congress

I'm a long way from home today, sitting in what I consider to be a socialist stronghold in the free United States. I would much prefer to be down in Arizona with the wife and kids or at the very least over in Oklahoma with other family.
But, this is not what has me down today.
Today is not the first Independence Day that we celebrate as a nation in duress, sadly there "could" be at least three more.
Today and over the past few months, our most trusted public servant has been going out of his way to embarrass us and apologize to our enemies and so-called "Allies" alike, for our so called short comings and past actions. (mostly the times we defended ourselves or others)
At one point, he even "BOWED" to the leader of a nation that I believe helps to finance those that would do us harm.
Can you imagine, the PRESIDENT of the United States bowing to ANYONE? Not even someone as undeserving as Barack Hussein Obama should bow to anyone on this planet.
And to top it off, his wife, the woman that has never be proud of her country and in fact has shown nothing but disdain for it, proves her distaste for us today.
She's in Moscow Russia. (probably getting new orders for Hussein)
No, its just as well for me that I am a long ways from home, in the back of a truck stop, writing.
I would not be much fun today at a party.
I wanted to go to the Teaparty in Tucson today, I have friends speaking there. I encourage you to go to one. I would if I could.
Enough of my frustrations.
Happy Birthday Americans.
Then, one day, a rich tourist comes to town.
He enters a hotel, lays a 100 Euro note on the reception counter, and goes to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to choose one.
The hotel proprietor takes the 100 Euro note and runs to pay his debt to the butcher.
The butcher takes the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay his debt to the pig grower.
The pig grower takes the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay his debt to the supplier of his feed and fuel.
The supplier of feed and fuel takes the 100 Euro note and runs to pay his debt to the town's prostitute that in these hard times, gave her "services" on credit.
The hooker runs to the hotel, and pays off her debt with the 100 Euro note to the hotel proprietor to pay for the rooms that she rented when she brought her clients there.
The hotel proprietor then lays the 100 Euro note back on the counter so that the rich tourist will not suspect anything.
At that moment, the tourist comes down after inspecting the rooms, and takes his 100 Euro note, saying that he did not like any of them, and leaves town.
No one earned anything. However, the whole town is now without debt, and looks to the future with a lot of optimism...
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how most Governments do business today!

It's never worked anywhere else, why would it work here?
(And if it DID, who would want it?)

Do you really believe they were ever free? Do you think they ever will be?
"WE" can "set them free". It would be as big a waste of time as Iraq was.
Yet Americans persist. I understand, that's what we do, its what we always have done. WE, the free est people on earth, would share our great gift with everyone if we could.
If it was really what they wanted. In case you have forgotten, the people of Iran, Want. You. DEAD.
Saw this as a headline it what is otherwise a pretty good conservative blog:
Iran's Evil Exposed... by the 21st Century
You uh... just noticed that Iran is an evil place? George W. Bush (the guy you thought was so damn stupid) TOLD you it was evil, YEARS ago. ("Axis of Evil"? Iran is a part of it)
Of course, the guy that wrote that Head Line, was about 8 or 9 when 'W' said that. But the evidence is and has always been, right there for you to see.
Now there has been an election, an election filled with fraud and manipulation.
Then the same thing happened in Iran. (sorry, had to) :-)
And people were shocked? WTF have you BEEN?
And now someone managed to catch on tape, the dieing gasps of some woman murdered in the streets by... Who? who the hell knows? And you NAMED HER... (Neda)
This surprised you?
Iran is the enemy, they have been our enemy, man, woman and child, since the late 70s. They provide arms and supplies to terrorists murdering women and children in Iraq.
They also provide terrorists.
These terrorists are also, by the way, killing good American Soldiers and Marines. And these people, the very ones in the streets right now that you feel so sympathetic to, CHEER the deaths of each and every one of those Americans.
The government in Iran came from these people, is made up of these people.
And you're surprised that they turn on their own for protesting a crooked election? An election that was just a dog and pony show to start with?
It's quite plain to me, that something else is going to surprise you.
Sooner or later, this will be over.
And all of these people that have so gracefully accepted your moral support, will stand in the street, shake their fists in time to the GREAT LEADER'S and Chant...
DEATH TO U.S.A.
Saturday, June 20, 2009
"We the People" read this in the news;
"By unanimous consent, the Senate passed a resolution a short time ago apologizing for slavery and racial segregation." You seem to finally be on a roll and in agreement in what has been a very partisan house of congress.
So.... While You and whats his name seem to be intent on apologies that don't need to be made...
(Congress has formally apologized to Native Americans, to Japanese Americans for their internment during World War II, to Hawaiians for overthrowing their king, and for never enacting anti-lynching legislation. Plus Obama's apologies for everything bad that has ever happened to anyone if there was an American within 20, 000 miles...)
How about you and your "friends" also apologize for:
The overbearing and incomprehensible tax code that has driven hundreds of thousands of jobs to leave our shores.
Government intrusion into the lives of private citizens.
Ignoring both the letter of and the spirit of the US Constitution and the intentions of the founding fathers.
Not stopping the run away problems and just plain bad idea of "Sub Prime" mortgages, when you had the chance. (and had been warned)
Failing to insist that economic policies that worked, stayed working. Policies that you yourself, "foot soldiered" for.
For, through inaction and corruption, allowing our electoral system to fail its people
Enslaving our great grand children to a national debt that had far simpler solutions.
(a personal favorite) for not ensuring Osama bin Laden's head was on a pike on the White House lawn.
For allowing partisanship to overshadow the well being of America.
How about, since you people are great about apologizing to people that don't have one coming, how about you require Barbara Boxer, one of your own, to apologize for scolding Brigadier General Michael Walsh, for calling her Ma'am, instead of "Senator". General Walsh EARNED his rank, he and she, are not even of the same "class".
For allowing ANYONE, to even suggest that I, as an American, should not own a firearm.
For allowing a sitting US president to circumvent the Constitution and the law with "Czars".
For not openly recognizing that America has enemies and pointing them out.
For not thinking of these items and thousands of others, yourselves.
For apologizing in the first place.
In late 2001, all of congress took to the capitol steps, stood behind George W, (both literally and figuratively) sang (badly) of the greatest nation on earth and swore to "set things right". That song, as badly done as it was, was sweet music to patriots and was a song of death to our enemies.
You allowed all of us to believe that there might actually be hope for you and for us.
There are an uncountable number of things you "might should" apologize for and it is time for you to take to those capitol steps again and apologize for your greatest sin of all;
For believing that "We the People" were so stupid, we didn't notice.

In September of 2001, a group of Islamic radicals flew civilian airliners, loaded with civilians, into civilian targets inside American cities. Yes, I know they also hit the pentagon, where most employees are civilians. (don't make excuses for these animals) Most of us remember that all over the Islamic world, people CHEERED and celebrated in the streets. They were celebrating the brutal murders of American citizens. Men, women and children. I specifically remember images and film from Tehran.
We have known for years that Iran harbors and finances Islamic terrorists. They are doing it today, as we sit and watch the riots on TV.
Riots? Sorry, I meant elections...
We accuse Obama and his flunkies, along with criminal organizations like Acorn of "stealing" the 2008 election in favor of a badly unqualified, incapable candidate. The Iranian election was a joke, a dog and pony show for the sake of the world view. Theatrics to convince the world that they are worthy of even being considered a civilized country.
Were you surprised that this election was rigged? I personally don't find it surprising at all. I don't find the riots and reported violence in the streets surprising, I don't view the reports of "police" firing into crowds surprising at all. NOTHING vile happening in Iran is in the least surprising. The people in this region have been cheerfully murdering one another for a 1000 years or more.
Today, good Americans react to the news coming from Iran. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has retained his seat as"president" and people are outraged and surprised. There are reports that ole Mahmoud placed a sad third. This handy bit of news comes from the Iranian press.(mostly) How soon we forget the likelihood of a press organization to lie to promote its own agenda.
People here in the U.S. protest the the Iranian people are being denied the right to freely assemble, to voice opinions, etc etc.
These are AMERICAN rights, not Iranian rights. They honestly have very few rights that they can keep.
These are a people that raise their children to hate us here in America. They train young men and women to detonate themselves in streets filed with civilians. They lustfully cheer when Americans die. The more cowardly the attack, the better they like it.
These people are the enemy, I can think of them as nothing more than that.
Through years of hate, deceit, murder, cowardliness and racial, theological bias, they have made their own bed.
Let them lie in it.
