KNOWLEDGE MUST BE GATHERED. MORE IMPORTANTLY IT MUST BE SHARED.

Yesterday I Ubered home. My wonderful truck (almost 200,000 miles) informed me that we needed a water pump and my trusted mechanic(s) told me that the job wouldn’t be completed in time for my drive home from work.

Hence Uber.

My driver was a very polite and energetic young man in his early thirties. Our first thirty seconds covered introductions. He told me he was a father of three and working three jobs to pay the bills. Through a little more discussion I found out he was a graduate from the University of California, Davis.

For those of you not familiar with California we in NORTHERN California refer to Davis as the People’s Republic of Davis.

Yes, as in the People’s Republic of China.

Upon my verbal curiosity he informed me he had graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in American Studies.

Of course this piqued my interest.

Number one, I am an American.

Number two, I’d never heard of that as a Major.

I kind of smiled and said, “well my friend please tell me what the professors in American studies are teaching you.”

His verbiage was filled with propaganda but it was very clear to me he was struggling with the things he was saying.

It was as though he knew the things he’d been taught were wrong but this was the education that he’d received so until someone said something different he was going to use that verbiage.

Kind of like auto-pilot.

Again a very nice, smart, hard-working and pleasant young man.

I turned off auto-pilot and started talking about the things I always talk about.

Freedom.

America.

“The Great Experiment”.

Benjamin Franklin and Adam Smith.

He listened very intently for about ten minutes, and when I paused, asked me to keep going because he agreed with everything I’d just said.

I discussed labels for a minute (how dangerous and unproductive they are) and then asked him to give me the title of one of his third or fourth year classes.

He answered with “African-American culture in urban America.”

I just started to laugh.

“That’s quite a handle. No labels there,” I said.

He laughed with me and said, ” I agree with everything you said and most of my professors would have hated you. As far as they are concerned everything is messed up because of the White Man.”

I nodded.

He continued, “except for one of my last professors. He talked about Adam Smith the way you just did. When I get home I am going to look up my notes. I loved that class!”

With a few minutes to go he said casually that he was a Muslim. I asked, as I always do, Sunni or Shiite. He said Sunni and that most Muslims are Sunni. We briefly discussed the Koran and then I said my problem with Islam is Sharia. Sharia is the law in Islamic nations and is systemic oppression. It abuses women, children, and many men.

He agreed and said he hated Sharia and that is wasn’t found in the Koran.

I replied whether it is or isn’t is irrelevant. It’s found in every nation where muslims are the majority.

He agreed.

We were almost to my house when I asked him where his parents were from.

He answered his father was from Syria and his mother was “Mexican-American…a Chicano.”

I smiled again and said, “no labels there.”

I then continued with “when I asked where your father was from you said Syria. That is a nation and a factual answer. You then said your mother was Mexican-American, a Chicano. These things don’t exist. We are humans, homo-sapiens, and we have a specific nationality. Mexico-America doesn’t exist. Neither does Chicano.”

I looked at him again and asked “where were you born?”

He answered, “Harbor City, California.”

I blinked twice and said, “so was I.”

We sat there for a few seconds and then I asked him “what is YOUR nationality?”

He looked me straight in the eye and said, “I am an American! I love the United States!”

America First.

AMERICAN ONLY.

The young people will listen as long as we continue to ROAR !!!

The Truth is a powerful thing.

The kids know they have been lied to and they are sick of it.

They’re just not sure where to turn.

Shine the light and lead the way.

Freedom First.

Freedom ONLY.

Let us take our pens and our swords and push “into this good night!”

Pens firing away.

Swords sharpened and at the ready.

So ready in fact they never have to be used.

God has blessed these United States.

The rest is up to us.

As Adam Smith has pointed out, the rest is up to you.

Lookin’ at the promise of the Promised Land

One day last week, on my way to work, I turned on the radio.

These days I normally head straight to music, but on this particular day I was feeling good and a little curious about the rest of the channels that I’d ignored off and on for the last few years.

I went to FoxBusiness first and listened to a grown man-child drone on about nothing in particular.  After sixty seconds my brain began to atrophy and I reached for the knob.

I hadn’t listened to the Comedy News Network (CNN) in forever but there had to be a missing plane somewhere that Russia was probably responsible for.

Wolf “Coyote” Blitzer was hyperventilating about the possibilities of Hurricane Irma while trying to pin some politician down regarding the raising of the debt ceiling.  In between the Coyote’s wailing and whining the no name politician used the term “schooled up” which caused me to lung for the knob and twist it to anything that would make the pain stop.

I landed on a station titled Mad Dog.  Mad Dog is supposed to be a sports talk radio station and par for the course the host was talking about how Hurricane Irma was going to mess up his kid’s fantasy football team.

Then again that is sports these days.

Fantasy football, assault, and kneeling.

I’m always a glass half full person but we may need more glass and better humans.

In other words we need a bigger boat.

Maybe Ark sized.

I thought about one more shot with sports radio but my senses finally kicked in and reminded me that to listen to former athletes who don’t enunciate or use words like “funna” “aks” or “whatsupdog”, accompanied by shock jocks that have no idea what it is like to compete athletically at any level, wouldn’t be something beneficial to my day.

As previously mentioned I headed to music.

Country music in particular.

I enjoy all forms of music but these days I prefer to listen to melodies that were created not sampled, harmonies not drowned out by a thumping bass, and lyrics that don’t refer to women as bitches and “hoes”.

Actually it’s not just these days.

It’s been this way my entire life.

Call me crazy.

I call it sane.

Falcon Sane.

That’s an inside joke for those who have been with me for a while and have also read Late Bird.

As always thank you.  You are the reason OUR message continues forward.

We are building an army from Northern California to Oklahoma to Michigan to New York to Florida.

As an American Brother of mine recently wrote, “It’s just beginning. I’m glad we are finding out who all the softies are before s*&t gets real. Pass me the ball, I’m ready to score. March on Brother!”

March on indeed.

I digress.

I landed on a country station that reminded me EXACTLY why I listen to country. The duo Brooks and Dunn came screaming through the speakers, fortunately without bass.

“Sun coming up over New York City
School bus driver in a traffic jam
Staring out at the faces in a rear view mirror
Lookin’ at the promise of the Promised Land

One kid dreams of fame and fortune
One kid helps pay the rent
One could end up going to prison
One just might be president

Only in America
Dreamin’ in red white and blue
Only in America
Where we dream as big as we want to

We all get a chance
Everybody gets to dance
Only in America”

There are so many wonderful lines here I won’t try to cover them all.

They did masterfully describe our country.

“Only in America, Where we dream as big as we want to”.

Otherwise known as the pursuit of happiness.

Of course for those to dream of fame and fortune someone has to pay the rent.

That someone is US and we continue forward to ensure that those “faces in the rear view mirror” get that chance to be President.

Lookin’ at the promise of the Promised Land.

Take a good look.

They are counting on US.

They are counting on you.

Only in AMERICA.

Dreamin’ in Red White and Blue.

Only in AMERICA.

Where we dream as big as we want to.

The dream is Freedom.

The rent is due.

Time to collect.

Crazy never takes a day off

When I sit down to write I have a theme or an idea in mind.  This week the world seemed to have jumped from one event to another faster than normal.

Maybe it’s just the sporadic and emotionally unbalanced way the Liberal Press decided to cover (selectively) current events.

With that in mind I will write at their same pace and try to balance out their proclivity of chasing their own tail or creating their own tales.

While Texas and Texans were getting crushed by Harvey, Liberals all over America were crowing that Texas was “getting what it deserved” or calling it “instant Karma” because Texas went Trump.

I abhor these parasites.

Yep it’s going to be that kind of column.

While humans were dying, the press focused on the clothing choices of the President and Mrs. Trump, her choice of shoes, his hat, and Russia.

When the President sent out a message stating he only wanted to Make America Great Again the hyenas attacked as though restoring these United States was something that only a crazy person would want.

America did what America does and rushed in from all over the country with food, water, supplies, and even boats that were used to help stranded and scared people.

A few stories of the Cajun Navy coming in to rescue Texans lead to others joining and we were even told that there was a Cajun Army, and Cajun Special Forces.

Good to know.

The “Rajun” Cajuns from that “bigoted”Red State of Louisiana were roaring into Liberal Houston, where the mayor was still rationalizing his decision to not leave, and putting their “uneducated, redneck, backward, white supremacist asses” on the line to save Liberals.

Sounds about right.

God blessed Texas that day with Louisiana, who was having their own issues with Harvey.

God bless those Rajun Cajuns.

The Liberal Press couldn’t be bothered to cover Americans who voted for Trump doing wonderful things so they turned their focus back to an unemployed idiot who chose to support Hamas over America.

Yes, that is exactly what Kaepernick did.

We were then told by the Hamas lover herself, Nancy Pelosi, that Antifa, or at least those in Berkeley, should be arrested and prosecuted because “our democracy has no room for inciting violence or endangering the public”.

Such a Stupid Human.

WE ARE NOT A DEMOCRACY you babbling idiot.

I told you it would be that type of column.

This is quite a turnaround for Pelosi as she did everything she could to help Antifa grow.

White hoods or Black hoods.

They’re all still HOODS, and for Ms. Nancy my guess is Antifa payback is coming, and just like all payback, it’ll be a Hillary.

Speaking of traitors it appears Warren Buffett continued to get richer off the backs of Americans.

Wells Fargo took their fake account program to apparently another level while Jimmy’s fat brother made another fortune.

How much is enough Warren?

Just like Nancy, silly Warren appears to believe the tide is turning against Progressive Liberalism (Oppression) as he recently stated “I think, if I can be helpful in some big way — there’s nothing at the present time — I’d do it.  I’d do it for President Trump.”

How droll.

He then followed that with “I would’ve done it for Hillary Clinton if she’d gotten elected,” showing us that both Clinton and Buffett should immediately be indicted.

One for admitted felonies and the other for supporting, aiding, and abetting known criminals and criminality.

This is called Racketeering.

Where are you Jeff Sessions?

Buffett is guilty as the day is long yet sadly he is a true measurement of someone “too big to fail”.

It’s not as though Liberalism was only found here this week.

Stupidity also popped its head up in Germany where Angela Merkel’s Foreign Minister wanted to warn us about a war with North Korea being the “deadliest conflict in history”.

Germany is infamous for at least three things.

Expelling Albert Einstein.

The massacre of Israelis at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich.

Starting and losing wars.

In case that wasn’t clear Nazi’s (Antifa) and Islam (CAIR) always lose in the end.

ALWAYS.

Those that wear masks and/or head cover because they cannot hide their shame, or control their bodily urges, will never prevail.

They simply won’t get enough Vitamin D.

Only Stupid Humans would rail on about solar energy and then completely cover their frames disallowing the sun to strengthen their bodies.

I suggest we have a party.

We get the Nazis, the KKK, (all twelve of them and their cousins), Antifa, Black Lives Matter, La Raza, and CAIR in the same room along with the head of the DNC, the Clintons, Obamas, and Bernie Sanders.

I can hear Tom Perez right now.

“Didn’t I tell each and every one of you to never be in the same place at the same time?”

Don’t worry Tom.  California is trying to pass a law before our next election that will allow felons to vote and the city of Sacramento is now paying “gang bangers” to not commit crimes.

Between the illegals, the convicts, and the Stupid Humans you’ll at least carry Southern California and no Sacramento isn’t Nor Cal.

Those of us in Northern California, well, we see it a little differently.

We are rolling with the Texans.

We are rolling with the Cajuns.

Let the Rajun begin.

Checkmate

Humans love to repeat thoughts or ideas regardless of truth, reliability, or even validity.

One such statement we hear constantly is Democracy is messy.  The implication is because Democracy is “messy” this makes it valid and/or reliable.

This is of course false.

Democracy isn’t messy.  It flows very cleanly from Oligarchy and leads to Tyranny.

Those without knowledge have accepted the label of Democrat, or even worse, Democratic Socialist, and they rant, rave, and argue at the thought of Democracy leading to Tyranny.

I use to tell them often “you aren’t arguing with me, you are arguing with the creator of the system.  You are arguing with Socrates.”

I don’t say this anymore because I don’t speak with Stupid Humans anymore.

I strongly suggest everyone join me in this endeavor.

It is quite freeing and relieves virtually all negative stress from our lives.

This always brings silence, as facts always do for a few seconds, to the organism known as Democrat, before the conglomeration of seizure-like non-verbal communication, takes place.

Even frothing can happen as the Truth hits the “Liberal Democrat”.

It can be a visually painful experience watching a human of adult age viscerally know they are wrong but fight and claw to push that information deep into the recesses of their brain where reality goes to die…and cause strokes.

I have more respect for most incarcerated inmates than Democratic Voters.  Most inmates (after sobering up) KNOW their decisions were and are wrong and many will even tell you so.

Some will even try to better themselves while in prison.

Not many, but some.

The Democrat doesn’t even try.

In this day and age the Democrat isn’t a wounded animal attempting to survive.  It isn’t misunderstood genius awaiting a new type of species.

The Liberal is the bottom of the barrel.  The melted cheese on the AM/PM wrapper only wanted by the ants.

Cockroach flora.

Seems a bit harsh Jason.

Really?

Here is a title of a column found on Yahoo from Robert “Third” Reich.

“Enough of this Madness.  Trump Must Go Now.”

Well okay then.

If Slick Willy’s right hand man says so, then it must be so.

Of course this putrid coward won’t actually try.  He is hoping to inflame others who will continue to behave like Democrats and lead America into Tyranny.

Again…Socrates.

It isn’t just Bobby “Richie” Reich who is pushing for this.  Over and over the ignorant wail “we are losing our Democracy” never mind not one of them has ever lived under such a form of government.

At least not in the United States.

As stated over and over we are a Republic.

A Constitutional Republic to be exact, not that it matters to the Democrats or RINOS, because they don’t care about America, the Rule of Law, or the Constitution.

They care about power.

This isn’t new in human behavior but the hope was when these United States were created, a new path would be taken.

“A great experiment” was to ensue.

Could men and women rule themselves without Kings or Queens, or some type of Overlord to keep the “unwashed masses” in check?

Would Adam Smith’s “Invisible Hand” be unleashed in the New World?

Could the one palatable form (temporarily) of Government in Socrates Five (Democracy) be replaced with something else as to not let another human civilization fall into Tyranny?

The answer was Yes, Yes, and YES!

All three happened and flourished, ripped apart slavery, crushed Nazism, and eventually broke Communism into little pieces.

The strength of the Individual known as American roared through two centuries making a better place for those, who wanted a better place.

A population that historically made up less than five percent of the world was putting a man on the moon, “opening China” and removing the Berlin Wall.

This same country is now trillions in debt, hundreds of trillions owed in retirement and medical, and in need of a wall to stop criminality, and frankly invasion.

What happened?

Apathy for one.

The Me Generation for two.

Finally, we stopped being Americans.

Some, out of necessity, became Tea Party Patriots, while others stooped to Compassionate Conservatism, wallowed around in the stench known as Progressive Liberalism or followed Jim Bernie Sanders Jones into Democratic Socialism.

We stopped being a Republic and reverted back to Democracy which is now prepped to be replaced by Tyranny.

Already happened in parts of Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, etc.

So what do we do?

WE remember that these United States are the “great experiment” and with all experiments we must have experiences.

Some good.  Some in the learning category, but we continue to push, prod, and punch whenever and wherever needed.

I didn’t put up a 10 second video of myself deadlifting over four hundred pounds for oohs and aahs.

Well maybe one aah.

I put it up to show that preparation comes in all forms, shapes, and sizes and we must be prepared for the “good” and more importantly the “learning” moments if we are to survive and thrive as Individuals.

As Americans.

Be bold, be brave, and ROAR at each and every opportunity you receive to serve the greatest country in the history of man.

The greatest experiment.

One doesn’t play chess to learn how the pawns are sacrificed.

We play chess to ensure there is no King or Queen, no OverLord, no Democracy, so that each individual Pawn has a chance to become anything they want.

A knight, a bishop, or a Michigan rock star.

That when each and every Pawn has that opportunity to pursue happiness they will always stand in service and with pride to the greatest collection of colors that has ever waved.

The Red, White, and Blue.

The Greatest Experiment is still alive but currently struggling.

It is time for all Americans to prepare their bodies and minds and to be ready to STAND shoulder to shoulder wherever and whenever the call comes.

Those that kneel are about to be run over.

The Greatest Experiment bows for no one, and as always, it will be the Pawns leading the way.

Let that gift be you

Growing up in the seventies and eighties one of the more common sayings was “if you don’t have anything nice to say, say nothing at all.”

Not only was this a wonderful lesson in self-control it also helped to keep the disease known as gossip under wraps.

That was then, this is now.

In today’s world that beneficial saying has been replaced with “just keeping it real” as though gossip and ignorance are “real”.

Whatever that means.

Another is “speaking MY truth” which allows virtually anything to come out of someone’s mouth.

Sadly these are the types of things that happen when Participation diminishes Competition.

When everyone believes they are “special” and a gift to the world.

Hubris has replaced humility.

Greed has replaced Grace.

Morals have been replaced with madness, and because of this, humanity and our systems, are breaking down.

Technology has opened the door for those, whose lives are empty, to “troll” and attempt to put their pain onto others.

They are “just keeping it real, yo.”

These souls are so damaged and in need of something with which to belong, they fill their days jumping onto websites, comment sections, and Facebook pages.

They speak their “truth” by threatening, badgering, and at times stalking others while using vile language including but not limited to profanity.

In the real world none of these things come out of their mouths as they are nothing but keyboard warriors and this is where we, for the betterment of our lives and theirs, must remove them completely.

These humans are comparable to cancer and have the same effect on our bodies.

Unlike cancer, dealing with these diseased animals is very easy, and at your fingertips.

Delete, block, and remove permanently from your life.

“Diversity of thought” doesn’t mean three caring intelligent minds sharing time with three ignorant bigots.

Life isn’t “fair and balanced”.

Life is what you make it.

For example Human Trafficking is never fair nor will there ever be a balance.

It’s something that must stop.

By engaging with the diseased we are giving them a platform to spread their infection.

Would you willingly eat rotten food?

Why then do we engage with rotten minds?

I don’t anymore.

A while ago I had a comment on one of my Facebook pages.  They wanted to know why, out of thousands of comments on my pages, none of them were negative.

This person went on to say they were “speaking their truth” while “keeping it real yo.”

After reading the first paragraph I scrolled to the bottom of the comment that went on for quite a while.  As one can imagine it was filled with hate and desperation and was screaming for my attention.

Like a meth head begging for a hit.

I know most, if not all of us, have had this experience or something similar at one time or another.

For those who value their own health and happiness, deleting and blocking these people without responding, is the best option.

If we have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all, and then remove them from your life so their internal battles don’t become yours.

This can be very difficult ( I have succumbed more than once) as most of us want to strike back or feel we must otherwise we are cowards.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

It is those who remove them without feeding the beast that have strength and are in a position of authority while providing leadership.

No one said leading or doing the right thing is easy.

If however you fall into the category of wanting to “save or educate” or believe it is your duty to explain to these lost vessels what is right and what is wrong I proffer this thought.

For an addict, drug or drama, to ever have a chance to heal, they must first want to heal, otherwise the cycle will repeat, and it does, right on our computer screens.

The loving thing to do with these individuals is to remove them from your life.  Only when they have nowhere else to turn, will the possibility of the truth entering their lives, have a chance.

Silence can be golden and in many cases less is more.

Humans aren’t born special but each one does have an opportunity to be a gift.

Let that gift be you.

America isn’t a village

There appears to be three types of voters in these United States.

Our first types are the ones that voted for Obama (the second time), those that voted for Hillary (at any time), and those still willing to vote for a Bush, a Kasich, a McCain, or any Democratic Candidate.

These are called Stupid Voters.

This may seem brutal but sadly it is quite accurate and the longer they are coddled the worse things will get.

They simply don’t have the capacity to learn or the willingness to care.

These are the types that have not, will not, and do not think for themselves.

They aren’t new to society or societies.

They are the ones that benefit from the hard work, creativity, and ingenuity of others.

These types have been around since Clans and Caves.  Sadly they also seem to be the type that procreate like rabbits creating more Woundworts than Bigwigs.

Our second group is made up of those who jumped on the Bernie bandwagon and never got off, those who think Rubio just needs some seasoning, and those still willing to support McConnell and Ryan.

These are the Ignorant Voters.

They have the capacity to learn but for one reason or another are still willing to IGNORE THE FACTS placed in front of them.

They use terminology like ‘he’s a nice guy” or “she’s the lesser of two evils”.

They correctly opine about the national debt and the criminality known as  “immigration” and yet continue to vote for the same individuals who promise to do something about these things while actively make them worse.

The Stupid Voter can be dealt with by having a Press, that provides factual data, as the Stupid Voter will repeat whatever the mantra is that day.

It is the Ignorant Voter that is the real problem and quite dangerous to Freedom.

They waffle back and forth between “fairness” and “equality” while calling themselves Blue Dog Democrats, Progressive Republicans, Compassionate Conservatives, or the new one, Pro-Life Liberals.

They have no moral code or boundaries and are easily swayed through emotional manipulation.  They view life in such an egocentric fashion that they believe their opinions are actually facts and hold the key to “peace on Earth”.

These are the deep thinkers that have come up with communal propaganda like “it takes a village” or “your kids aren’t yours” and stimulus checks.

They are also the bright minds who believe human consumption, specifically in The United States, is warming the planet causing the Earth to die while then trying to bring more humans in and gather them in Sanctuary Cities.

This is a special kind of lunacy.

The third type of voter in America is very easy to understand.

This group voted for Donald Trump because of three issues.

(1) The removal of all illegals.

(2) The repeal of ObamaDoesn’tCare.

(3) Trump wasn’t a Republican or a Democrat and it was very clear the brass in both Parties not only hated him but feared his election.

This group is called Americans.

This group knew “it” was broken and “it” had to be fixed.

This group didn’t run around “hailing Caesar” on bended knee like the Stupid and Ignorant did with Bert & Bernie or Hillary because of her gender.

Hillary would have been better served with “It’s MY time” as a catch phrase rather than I’m with Stupid (Her).

The Americans KNEW the border needed to be shut AND tens of millions needed to be removed.

This group knew ObamaDoesn’tCare was eating away at our systems and had to be removed completely.

This group understood that both Parties were filled with traitors and parasites, and although Trump wasn’t the perfect candidate in the history of the United States, he was the perfect candidate right now.

Someone way outside the box.

Someone who was not beholden to either Party.

Someone who would fight and could win if given the support and chance.

Americans stood up and have given him both and although he isn’t the perfect President he is perfect for where we are in America.

He has at times been crass,  occasionally calloused, and always clear.

If you don’t understand Trump it’s probably because you are “woke” and not awake.

The Stupid will continue to repeat what they hear on the “idiot box” and say things like “we are on the right side of history”.

Histrionics would be more accurate.

The Ignorant are filled with angst and emotion and cannot figure out which side they are on but are willing to follow along with the Americans as long as the stock markets continue higher.

Greed is a powerful force but not stronger than the group known as American.

The Americans will continue to push forward disregarding the daily babble from all news media and support the man who is standing on the hill currently taking the arrows.

The American doesn’t kneel, slobber, or beg for the President to save “them”.

Americans put Trump there to do the job that needed doing, and as long as he is, Americans will make sure he knows he is appreciated and respected for stepping into the fray.

Furthermore we are ready to stand on that hill with him.

He need only make the call.

Yet the Ignorant reading this now will still not comprehend how powerful the need for Freedom is to the American so let me make it clear.

It has been said millions of times and proven throughout the history of the United States that Her citizens, if need be, will defend Her with their very last breath, but for America to survive and thrive that last breath won’t be coming from the American.

It will be coming from her enemies.

This country has no place for the Ignorant.

Knowledge not education is power.

I strongly suggest you “educated souls” come in from the cold and out of the dark.

The climate is indeed changing and your only hope for survival is to get on the Right side.

If you aren’t sure which side that is then take a deep breath as it will be your last.

Your kind of ignorance will find no bliss nor any quarter in these United States.

Sincerely yours,

An American

“Vote Democrat because anything is possible.”

A while ago I wrote about a Democratic Congressman out of Florida who proclaimed that he and the Liberals had the “black and hispanic vote”, the strong support of the gay community, and were going to run the country.

Florida then proceeded to go for Trump.

Oh the well laid plans of mice and stupid men.

Still, I remember listening to this buffoon and wondering how someone with so much hate and ignorance could ever attain such a position.

I guess anything is possible within today’s Democratic Party.

That could be their new slogan.

“Burning cities, closing schools, runaway debt, and control by public unions which will require new taxes every election cycle.  Vote Democrat because anything is possible.”

I digress.

The Liberal Loon from Florida had made quite a statement.

The Dems had the blacks, hispanics, and gays.

I’m pretty sure there is a word for the concept of having blacks, hispanics, and gays but more on that in a minute.

As I do with all communication, verbal or written, I think about the actual words people use.

Black, hispanics, and gays.

I don’t “have” any black friends.

I don’t have any hispanic or gay friends either because I am not a BIGOT.

I have FRIENDS.

The proximity to the sun of one’s ancestors or sexual preference isn’t on my list of things I find important or relevant to call someone my friend.

Loyal, ethical, smart, hard-working, etc.

This is my list.

Anyone who has a list that has any color or gender preference on it or believes in “skin color diversity” is a stupid human and should be removed from your life.

I have.

These people believe in victimization and live their lives in that role.

It’s incredibly damaging to be around these types of parasites.

Chicago is filled with these types of humans.  California is as well.

Let’s get back to what works.

Loyal, ethical , smart, hard-working, etc.

That is my list.

All humans with these values are valuable to these United States.

I don’t “have” friends.

I am a friend.

Do unto others as you would have done unto you.

As Americans we must choose intelligently and wisely as to whom we will befriend.

In other words Liberals need not apply.

We don’t “have” any room for bigots and personally speaking I lost all patience for Progressivism five clicks back.

Click Liberals.

Click.

No Permission Needed

The survival of the human is a very simple thing to understand.

Water, food, shelter, security.

In that order.

With water, food, and shelter handled security becomes the most important survival factor.

Before men like Samuel Colt created weapons that could deal with multiple or larger attackers, most men and women had very little or no recourse in the face of physical domination.

Submit or die.

One need only look to countries like Mexico, Cuba, and Venezuela to see the very real effect of humans not being allowed to own a gun.

Death, rape, destruction, and human trafficking (slavery) are a daily occurrence in these and many other countries where deviants are willing to murder and molest those with no defense.

In the aforementioned countries, and many others, the only humans who have guns are the criminals, and they are broken into two groups.

Gangs and the Government.

The average citizen in these countries is simply waiting to die which is why tens of millions of them have fled into the United States.

Sadly in many cases they bring the death and destruction with them.

We have Russian gangs, Chinese gangs, Mexican gangs, and of course Islam not to mention our own collection of human depravity known as the Crips, Bloods, and Peckerwoods.

None of these individuals care about other people.

They do care about their own survival needs which is why they all have GUNS.

The 2nd Amendment wasn’t created because of idiots on the South Side of Chicago.

It was created to give us a chance to survive the elected idiots in places like Chicago.

Sadly, in many areas in the United States, the Gangs and the Government are either working together or selectively ignoring each other to the detriment of the citizenry.

If the government has guns and the gangs have guns it only seems appropriate that WE have guns.

Appropriate is actually the wrong word.

Required is a better choice.

Constitutionally.

Yet with all this madness occurring daily we still have those in this country who try and play word games with not only our survival but their very own.

We hear it all the time.

“The 2nd Amendment allows for a Militia to have weapons not the Individual Citizen.”

Who do these idiots think make up a “Militia”?

Putting this stupidity aside their statement is 100 percent wrong.

The 2nd Amendment reads very clearly.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Of course humans without knowledge or ethics will try and cram this sentence into one concept ignoring commas and the usage of verb(s).

If written today this is the way the 2nd Amendment would read.

A well regulated Militia is necessary to the security of a free State. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.

Just like Freedom and Free Will to have the first you must exercise the second.

Without the people keeping and bearing Arms a well regulated Militia would not exist.

Logic is easy to understand to the logical.

So is survival.

Those that lay down their guns have no trigger to pull and are already dead.

Dead men do not stand.

They lay head to toe six feet under and have seen their last sunrise.

We stand shoulder to shoulder and because of our guns, and our willingness to use them, will see many more sunrises and sunsets hopefully without pulling the trigger once.

Peace through strength.

Freedom through Free Will.

Some say it is better to beg forgiveness than ask permission.

They are wrong on both counts.

Free men and women do not beg, do not ask, do not grovel.

We stand in the sunlight and are counted in times of good and bad as our permission has already been granted.

The type of permission that comes with great expectations and greater responsibilities and only answers to one thing on this planet.

Freedom.

Seek and ye shall find.

Hammers Required

My life has always been pretty simple in regards to those who like to run their mouths or give me unsolicited advice.

When something is said that I don’t like I tell the person to stop.

If they do it again I invite them to deal with this issue in a nonverbal way.

Most of the time as a child, adolescent, or an adult the idiots stop running their mouths.

Now this is not to say there haven’t been times when something was said that I didn’t catch right away or it just took me a little while to get angry.

On this issue I have no doubt EVERYONE knows what I am referring to.  That stupid comment some relative, friend, or co-worker said that you stewed on the rest of the day and sometimes even longer.

I don’t “stew” very well.

Never have.

If there is something you’ve said or done that irritated me I will deal with you as quickly as I can and purge you from my life.

Whether you like the way I deal with you, or not, is irrelevant.

Your mouth is causing you your problems, not me.

Sounds like you think you are some kind of tough guy Jason?

I’m not Pat Miletich but who is.

I have a brother from another mother with a nickname of Caveman who has been reminding me in person for a few years that I’m not even the toughest guy in the Rocklin, CA area but aside from UFC Hall of Famers or wrestling/grappling/jiu jitsu physical freaks of nature with nicknames like Caveman, I’ll be your Huckleberry.

That’s just my game.

Again this is the way I was raised and most Americans understand what I am saying but sadly things have changed dramatically in these United States.

The concept of live and let live coupled with turn the other cheek has created tens of millions of humans who believe they can say or do anything they want from their “safe spaces” without repercussion.

These safe spaces used to be their cars.

The problem these days are the cowards have graduated from their cars and onto the internet.

I cannot tell you how many “keyboard warriors” I’ve dealt with over the years.

I’ve heard it all.  If you can think it I have read it.

Now I put my columns up for FREE.  If you don’t like something you’ve read move on.

You may as well.

I just delete your comment and you from the page.

I read items on social media all the time that are lies, half-truths, or just wrong but I don’t comment negatively on these things.

On the net?

What’s the point?

I have a life.

In person I will gladly engage in providing knowledge to the ignorant.  If they don’t like it they can walk away or if they have enough courage take it to the next level.

Not once have I had someone attempt to do so in person.

Not once.

Maybe it’s because of my big smile.

I doubt it.

On the internet though it’s any entirely different world.

I’ve had people call me things that even in my most angered state have never come out of my mouth.  One time a rather disturbed soul said such vile things to me I told him, “I am easy to find. That is my name and my picture.  But when you coming looking pack two lunches.  I’m going to eat the first one and feed you the second.”

His response:  “You’re crazy.”

Lucky for him I’m not.  These weasels think they are safe behind their computer screens.

Finding them isn’t hard at all.

I didn’t bother to respond.

As stated earlier I’ve been called anything and everything and I am just one guy with a website and a decent presence on Facebook.

Imagine what Donald Trump goes through on a daily basis.

He’s been called a Nazi, a rapist, a child molester, and a traitor.

His wife and children have been attacked.

Twenty-four hours a day seven days a week hate is spewed at him on the Internet, television, and radio.

Well he’s President Jason.  He’s going to have to turn the other cheek.

Nope.

Not anymore.

That’s how we got here in the first place.

We are out of cheeks.

We are out of turns.

Actually THEY are out of turns.

It’s OUR turn as in it’s OUR country.

Liberals have taken advantage of our “kindness” and now believe we are weak.

I don’t care what Donald Trump tweets, states, or yells, I will back him every step of the way.

It’s time to choose sides.

Literally.

If the House actually puts his impeachment on the floor or somehow the 25th Amendment is attempted (which still goes to the House)  I will be on my way back to Washington D.C.

I won’t be alone.

That is our line in the sand and if this is attempted we must ensure it is not successful.

WE MUST ENSURE IT IS NOT SUCCESSFUL.

Many have asked over the years what will it take for Americans to rise up?  Who will make the call?

Any attempt at Trump’s impeachment is what it will take for me and although I will make the call right here I doubt I will be the only one.

Regardless it will be made.

We are coming off the 4th of July Weekend.

The Birthday of The United States.

The Declared Independence of Americans.

From this day forward let it be known that in order for a house to stand the nails must be driven purely, forcefully, and literally into the structure.

There are nails aplenty.

Hammers required.

Lunch will be provided.

Happy Birthday to the Red White and Blue

Born in Southern California every 4th of July celebration I can remember was pretty much the same.  Playing in the neighborhood all day while stopping to eat a wide variety of foods usually only available on holidays.  I’m sure some type of large firework show took place but I don’t really remember them.  I do remember Whistling Petes, Black Snakes, and Sparklers.  The acrid smell of smoke and burnt vegetation as a Spinning Flower once bounced off a street curb and into one of our neighbor’s ivy.

That left a mark.

It wasn’t too long after that my family moved to Trinity County.

Northern California.

Even back then things were different.

The hub of Trinity County was and is a town called Weaverville.  Those of you who’ve read Late Bird I’m sure recognize the name.

Weaverville is surrounded by little mill towns that hold anywhere from thirty to one hundred people each.

Certainly not sprawling metropolises.  Probably more coyotes than people and without a doubt more snakes and scorpions.

I sometimes laugh when I hear “snakes are more scared of you than you are of them.”

They should be.  We have a corpus callosum and opposable thumbs.

At least those of us who voted for Trump.

In Weaverville the 4th of July was an event because the citizens and community leaders loved the United States.

Flags and bunting decorated the town.

Red, white, and blue hats, shirts, and bandanas were found everywhere.

Veterans were shown respect because of their courage to serve, protect, and defend.

The same type of courage found more than two hundred years ago.

The courage of men and women who if caught would be hung as traitors to the Crown.

The term American back then was whispered by many as it could get you beaten, robbed, or killed by the English or those loyal to the King.

American heroes like Francis Marion known as the Swamp Fox and John Paul (I have not yet begun to fight) Jones engaged in the battle on land and sea and American legends like Nathan Hale were created when unmeasurable courage met an unbreakable noose.

In the name of the United States.

In the name of Freedom.

Fireworks are a large part of most 4th of July celebrations.  Many ooh and aah at them.  I have done so as well.  We are gifted with their visual beauty because nothing horrific follows the streaking of light through the sky followed by a large explosion.

“And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.”

The flag was still there but many Americans were not and would never see the Stars and Stripes ever again because “Don’t tread on me” actually meant DON’T TREAD ON ME.

I hope each and every one of you enjoy your 4th of July celebrations.

My point of this article is to continue the knowledge, lessons, and stories that were given to me by my parents, teachers, and books.

That before we partake in the ice cream, hot dogs, and apple pie we pause for a moment or two to appreciate those who made it possible that we see fireworks as a beautiful sight because we don’t live in a war zone.

That before we run off to the lake to barbecue and swim that we say thank you to the Big Fella Upstairs for whom this nation was found under.

That before the carnivals start, the cotton candy sticks to too many little faces, that before the rockets red glare, we understand the ultimate truth.

Freedom isn’t Free.
