Die with your boots on....updated.

Ok...Yeah i know. I still use Gmail and Blogger.
Yes I now they are in the pocket of the .gov.

But I'm here to tell you, I am about sick of the propoganda I get every single day from the Obama campaign, sinply because I joined Google circles. I added politics to my interests and of course now I receive notices for "the white house" aka The obama campaign, about how the republicrits are outspending them and they need money. Can I just donate $3? well it was like that for about 2 months and now it's....can i donate at leasdt $5? Every single dollar I net is precious to me at this point. I'm not even going to go into the hardships I've been through since the "annointed one" took office.

I'm not even going to go into how I've seen multiple people close to me lose their jobs without any prosperity in site for them in the last 3 years. I think i don't have to.

I don't think Romney can save our country, but I can sure as hell anticipate that an Obama win is going to send us down the rabbit hole wayyyyy quicker.

As a country, we are spoiled brats. It's true. Ask anyone older than 40 and you'll get the same answer...unless they're card carrying members of the democrat/socialist/ communist party.
And at his point in history...they are all pretty much the same.

Sad but true. I still know registered democrats that are more "conservative" than most of the GOP leadership.

So what does this say about us as a country?

Well, for one, we've allowed then forces of evil to overtake us through our complacency. And No...I don't believe for a second that every registered democrat is evil. Just like I don't believe that every registered rebublican is evil.

However I will qualify this statemant with this:

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." (Edmund Burke)

And that is what the majority of the "good Men/women" in this country have doen for uncounted years.

We are poised on a precipice now. I believe that we are about to make history here. What are our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren going to think of us? Are we going to perpetuate this travesty or will we right it? Are they going to be paying for our excessiveness or will we....or they curtail it? What will happen? I don't know. I'm not a prophet or a seer.

However I can tell you this, there is a large number of patriots in this country that are still willing to fighht and to die for what they percieve to be freedom. Some are right, some are not, but when roughly 50% of the population is just waiting for a war.....I think there may very well be one on the horizon. The question is...what side will you be on?

I'm not claiming a side...except to be on my side. I nkow alot of folks who will be on my side. And it has nothing to do with political persuasion.

So many of you don't think that such a thing can happen here. This is America, after all.

If you've never been to a third world country...or if you've never seen such a country in action, you have no rational basis to stand on. The world is not fair, and no amount of additional taxes levied on us by the great and all-powerful .gov will change this. We are already overextended as a country. The states need to declare and enforce their sovereignty. The US gov't is bloated and ineffectual. They cannot help the doers anymore. All theyseek to do is help they malingerers. At the expense of us.

It's gonna crash. It's just a matter of when.

In the meantime...

Keep your powder dry friends....

And die with your boots on!

Die with your boots on....


I realize I haven't posted anythimg for quite some time...

And maybe i should post more frequently...but I am at a loss to really say anything meaningful.

I am disgusted with my government. I see corruption at every turn.

How is it that the attorney general can get away with being in contempt of congrewss and there's no shouts saying the guy is dirty? The MSM is givin this joker a free pass. absolutely disgusting.

I get regular emails from the white house telling me I need to donate money to Barak Obama and I'm wondering why I should send this joker any of my money, since I have so little.

Since the current Teleprompter in chief has taken office, I lost my job, worked for several months as a temp (with no benefits) and was lucky enough to land myself a full-tie position because of ny work ethic. I still only make about a third of what I made before, but somehow the econoy is iproving..... Yeah right.

I know people that are working for half or less their former wages in the same organization, because the alternative is "unemployment". I know of people that have worked at this organization for close to 20 years that are now making a pittance just to make sure their families are fed. The trend I see disturbs me.

Personally, I can say I've been screwed by the system, but I blame noone but myself for not seeing it coming.

I am a single white male....and even if I didn't blame myself, the government would anyway.
No big deal.

But when I see guys who have bled for this country and have busted their ass for this organization working from job to job as a temp after many years of honorable service, I have to ask myself, Why are they being punished for the mistakes of our "so-called leaders"?

We're constantly being told that the economy is iproving, and yet we see no evidence of this.

I may be painting a target on my back for saying this, and quite frankly, I no longer care. But we have been in a deep recession for quite sometime....and we're not coming out of it any time soon. I read recently that we're headed for another recession....

Another recession?! really?! We haven't even recovered yet!

I've endured a whole lot of loss in the last couple of years.....and I can tell you that the blinders have been lifted from my eyes.

We have been led to believe that we live in a free society....If this is true, explain to me how we have the highest incarceraction rate of any country in the world.

I also have to say....

What happened to Peace officers? Do they even exist anymore? We now have LEOs ( Law Enforcement Officers) Every alphabet organization has a SWAT team now. Along with all the bells and whistles. Tell me...why does the IRS need their own SWAT teams with weapons that civilians are not allowed to legally own.  Why does the FDA have a SWAT team? Why does the Social Security Administration have a SWAT team?

Why is it that every podunk township have a SWAT team? Does anyone actually know what SWAT stands for? What those letters actually mean?

SWAT: Special Weapons And Tactics.

Back in the 70's, when SWAT was young, they were a special Law enforcemant element that was used only in very special situations. Thes men were highly trained and very professional

In the last several years we've een the militarization of our law enforcement departments.

The problem is, we see untrained or undertrained personnel attempting to pass themselves off as legitamate SWAT teams Simply because they have the hardware.

Case in point: Jose Guerena.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, your a day late and a dollar short.

I'm composing this post in the wee hours of the morning, so initially I won't be linking any videos or supporting links for any of this.

However...I will be coming back to post thos links later for all you haters out there.

Good men have died protecting their families against the police state. Because the police are never wrong....even when they are.

We are quickly becoming a third world country. Corruption is the norm. Justice is seldom seen. And it's just getting worse.

I don't know hat the answr is. I used to think that we could change things via the ballot box...

I no longer believe that is the case.

All I can offer is advice:

Keep your powder dry friends...

And die with your boots on.

Everyone deals with loss in their own way.

I've been dealing with loss for a long time.

From job, to house to people that meant the world to me.

A few hours ago, I learned my father has passed on. He left us quietly, he just stopped breathing while he was sleeping. I guess that was probab;y the best we could hope for since he's been suffering and in pain for the last 12 years.

Call me weak if you like, but I've just about killed a fifth o Jameson already.

I am my father's only son and I'm stuck 2000+ miles away. Still not sure if I can make it home for the funeral... I will probably get there, but it's still too soon to say for sure.

Back in May I lost a dear friend. Larry. Larry was probably the closest thing to an uncle I had here in AZ. He was my mentor and I was always learning from him. He died in an attempt to better his quality of life. Blod clots suck.

A few weeks ago, I lost my friend Randall. Randall was a tank commander in Desert storm. He survived a malfunction on his LT's .50 cal but lost some hearing and the vision in one eye. He was a damnad badass diesel mechanic and lot a finger working on heavy equipment. He was like a big brother to me and even though he was a recluse the last few years, when he did show up, it was always just like the old days. His son called me 2 weeks ago to let me know he'd died. He was alone when he died, up on Mt. Graham. An aneurysm supposedly. and supposedly he died quick with little pain. In a way, I am glad. At least he was where he was happy. I miss him. I miss him and Larry.

I havepictue on my FB page of myself and Larry with another good  man; Scotty Anderson. Scotty was in the last horse mounted cavalry unit in the US Army. He was rancher here in AZ. Scotty died a couple of years go. He held on longer than we thought he would. He was a good man.

I have to wonder...

Is there any justice in this world? Or do we have exact justice for ourselves. I spoke with Larry hours before the blood clot from his knee replacement hit his heart. they managed to bring him back from that, but the clot then moved up to his brain and caused a stroke... he died 3 days after I last talked to him. I suppose I can can be happy kowing I was one of the last people to speak with him before he became a vegetable. I don't think there's any way to to reconcile your feelings in these situations. time supposedly heals all wounds...we'll see how that works out.

He was my boss for awhile. We became really close friends pretty quickly. He was a Tanker, I was a Scout.
Randall was agnostic. He always said "if the Christian God really exists, he's got alot to answer for."

I hope Randall is giving him hell right now.


Dad has been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis for 12 years. As a resukt of his cndition and the meds he's been taking he has had a heart attack (and survived), he's had non-hodgkins lymphoma, (had chemo and survived). and finally his body said it was done. He went unwillingly. He didn't want to die nd fought it tooth and nail the entire time. There was s much left undone.

There is no justice in this world. Good men have left us through no fault of their own. They weren't charging the line or doing anyhting you might expect of a warrior. But they were warriors all.

No matter your religious or spiritual leanings...

Their gods havecalled them home.

I hope to drink with them at Fiddler's Green when my time comes.

And when the apocalypse comes I hope I can stand by their side and fight the forces of evil.

I'm havin a hard time seeing the monitor right now...looks a little blurry...

In the meantime,

Keep your powder dry and die with your boots on.
