F**k the statists...


Well, I have to say I am pretty well pissed off.

It normally takes alot for me, but really?

The UAW is set to get aroud 7-8k in bonuses this year. Seriously.

And since this is a leap year and Christmas is on a Tuesday....the POTUS has declered that Monday is a federal holiday and every gov't worker gets pid to not show up for work. I am a contractor and since the gov't isn't going to be there....I am not allowed to go to work on monday. This results in a net loss of 10 hours of work. I am not going to go into the details, but since whatever work I do is not designated as so important that it can't wait until the 26th, I lose 10 hours of work. I have no leave time. And not because I am a leave takin sonufabitch, I just happen to be in that category of folks that don't get any actual leave until the end of Februaury. So I have to take leave without pay.

Now since I am on a work schedule where I am supposed to work 4 10 hour days next week, I lose 10 hours, because I have to take leave without pay for Monday. And on top of that, despite that my schedule is 10 hour days, I only get paid for 8 hours of holiday pay for Christmas, I lose another 2 hours there...that's 12 hours of pay I have to lose in one week. I'm a bit po'd about that., but seriously, Once every 5-6 years I shouldn't be upset right? Except with the "fiscal cliff" looming, there was speculation that the gov't might not do this....yeash right. The current POTUS loves nothing more than to spend money we don't have...and God forbid he break tradition...jus' sayin. If he had, he may have taken some flak, but would have gained a little bit of cred from the people that hate him already...and not because he's some kind of partially black/arab/white guy....just sayin.

I expected it, but there were so many folks that didn't think it would happen, what with the precarious financial situation our gov't is in....I was right and they were wrong. Big fucking surprise there.

So in the meantime, I am wondering what is in store for me come Jan. 6th. Sequestration is likely to happen because that is EXACTLY what his holiness(BHO) wants. I can't believe that Americans turned out for this charlatan again in the numbers they did unless they want the same BS commie state he does. And that saddens me.

I know that our public school system has failed in teaching the important concepts that made us who we used to be. I no longer cling to the idea of statism in any form, but for those that do even a little bit...for the constitutionalists out there...For the rugged individualists out there, do you really want to to be ruled? George Washington gave up that opportunity because he believed in what this nation of individuals could achieve...and look where we are now....disgraceful.

I could go on until the cows come home but I won't. I doubt anyone even peruses my blog anymore, but I needed to vent this, and if there are any truly liberty minded idividuals out there that wish to have a conversation...leave a comment and I promise you I will respond.

In the meantime, Keep your powder dry and die with your boots on!!!!!!!!!!!!

Keep your powder dry..., we have been inundated with reports concerning the shooting in CT.

I mourn for the families who lost their loved ones. I think this is a serious tragedy. Serious.

A whole lot of innocent people died for no good reason. A madman ended their existance. I can now call him a kid as he was about 20 years old, but he acted as an adult. He even killed himself .

The kid was mentally screwed up. There's no doubt about it. He was an introvert with some serious anger managemnet pronblems. Apparently, his mom was trying to see him through this and didn'y get him the help he actually needed. As a result, he murdered his mom....putting almost a dozen rounds in her head and adfter stealing her weapons, committing murder and stealing her car, he headed for an elementary school, where he forced his way in and murdered 26-27 people, adults and children, for what purpose? We still don't know. We may never know.

The media and our politicians think that banning weapons is the answer...actually they don't, it just fits into their agenda. The mass of people that are buying this line of bull is far too high for me to believe these are American citizens.

What happened to rugged individuality? What happened to us blaming the perpetrator and not society at large?

Facts be damned, it is factual that anywhere that draconian gun control has been implemetnted, massive casualties are the result. In areas where trained gunowners are carrying legally, crime...including this sort of nonsense are almost non-existent.

So why are we punishing normal, law abiding citizens for a massacre perpetrated by a madman? Because it plays into the hands of the communists. and I realize that may be a bold statement, but there are kids in this country now that don't even know the definition of communism.

There are voting age people who don't remember the fall of the iron curtain.

And they aren't teaching any of this to the kids in school now. They not only don't remember it, but they haven't been taught it. They are completely clueless.

Communism used to be a very dirty word, now...well, alot of people don't even really know what communism has done to those that adopted it in history. And they think that it is ok, because they haven't seen or been educated to it's outcome...EVERY SINGLE TIME IT HAS BEEN TRIED.

So, as I see it, we don't have many options. for one, when they do declare martial law and try to take our guns, there will be resistance. As well, there ought to be. We are not England, or any other European country. We are America. And what this country was founded on has been displaced by a creeping socialism brought on by political correctness and a desire to be more like the "enlightened" Europeans.

This country is/was the last best hope for freedom, and what our founders left us with was a recipe for that. They warned us of the dangers and we ignored it. We have as a populace embraced the socialist ideal and now we freedom lovers are in the minority.

When the gov't comes for our arms and we refuse, we will be labeled as terrorists and enemies of the state. When those who choose to fight do so, they will also be labeled enemies of the state. And the vast majority will agree because they are sheep. What we face now is far worse than our founders faced when they declared independence and faced down the greatest military on earth. We have allowed ourselves to become pussified to the extent that there is no possible way for a true revolution to succeed. And there is no place left on earth for us to turn. There is no frontier to make our own destiny on. Nowhere in the world does such a place exist.

Unless, we discover some way to colonize another planet, we are doomed. And I'm pretty well sure the technology isn't there for us to move away and stake our claim as free men/women.

So waht lies ahead for us? I can say this much...there will be bloodshed when they come after us. They will use all the power of the state to try and subjugate us. The only possible thing we have going for us is a true, SHTF scenario where all the infrastructure breaks down, and even then, there is no definite positive outcome.

I will leave you all with one last thought. And that long as we maintain a spark of freedom and the concept of it in our offspring, the idea will not die. We may have to go underground for awhile, but as long as we can educate our children properly, the spark will not die and no matter the outcome of martial law/civil war, as long as there is one person left with that spark...there is always hope.

In the meantime, keep your powder dry and die with your boots on my friends!

Well, I felt compelled to post something, so here I go....

I've realized that true to Obama's promise, the only thing I have to rely on right now is Hope and Change...

Change is constant. Things happen, roll with it.

Hope...well, due to the congresscritters and the newly re-elected POTUS, I can only hope I will still have a job after sequestration hits.

At this point I am beyond caring. They'll come up with some quick fix to keep the .gov running, they always do, but at what cost?

Eh. I don't really care about that either. At this point it's pretty obvious we're all screwed. Not just the US but everyone. Things are about to get ugly in these United States as well as the rest of the world. If the recent spate of petitions for secession are any indication, the people are prety well pissed off. The Media seems to not care and continues to tow the socialist party line. It's quite telling when Rush Limbaugh sounds more like a Libertarian than a Republican...just sayin.

I don't expect the world to end on the 21st of December....but I will be in good company if it does ( 2 horses, 3 dogs and 4 cats...oh and a couple of Axolotls)

I like my job. I don't make bank or anything, but I enjoy the people I work with and my boss is a pretty hands off type and I have practically ZERO micromanagement. Which suits me just fine thank you. I have opportunities to move and take on different responsibilities, but I am just not really inclined to do so at this time.

My co-worker and I have a running deal that since things are working so well for us, if one of us leaves, the other one will too. hehe.

I've had awesome jobs in the past and hoped that they would cntinue to stay that way, but change is inevitable. Randall (RIP) was probably my collest boss ever. He was, bar none one of my best friends and I respected him more than most people that have been in my life. But as time goes on, the world about us changes and we must change with it.

For the last several years I have been chadsing my past looking for hope and salvation in the past. I realized, the hard way, that this is absurd. You can never go back. ever.

I cherish my friendships I've managed to maintain for the long years, but my life is different now. I have come to realize that I need to accept the future and move forward and not pine for relics of the past.

If the .gov decides it is their best interest to cut my job, then so be it. For the time being I am going to continue to do what I do with due diligence and if I get let go (again) well, I will make that hurdle when it comes.

I have an amazing support network and I have a really awesome girlfriend. She's very pragmatic which is rather refreshing. She's open minded and is willing to learn new things. Not a gold-digger and not chasing rainbows. I'm very fortunate.

I guess I don't have much more tonight. I have been composing a new post in my head for days, but for some reason it isn't ready yet. I actually have alot to say, but I am going to be very particular about what i say when it is really important.

This is kind of a stream of conciousness post. Which is ok too. I just needed to say something since i have been so silent for so long.

In the meantime, for those of you that actually read this....Keep your powder dry and die with your boots on!
