The Gadsden/Bonnie Blue Comparison

The Gadsden Flag is more like the Bonnie Blue than the Stars & Stripes.

In 1774 there were no united states. There was no united States. A minority faction of revolutionary thinkers, fundamental rights advocates and free-staters came together and penned a mighty document to provide future generations a foundation of liberty and personal responsibility.

Nearly every single one of those men died destitute or as an outlaw against the government which ruled at the time, that of King George, III of Great Britain.

There were few galvanizing events that shook these patriots (note the use of "patriots" before the existence of any nationality to ascribe) to the core was the confiscation of their personal arms. These men knew, as we do now, that in every instance where a tyrannical government has taken the effort to remove the ability (for they can never completely take the WILL) to defend themselves and their lands then they become slaves to that same government, unable to defend against despotism and abusive executive disposition.

In 1774 there was no flag. There was no "Stars & Stripes". There were only Thirteen (13) independent colonial subdivisions. Prior to the misapplication of the 14th Amendment and federally mandated "nationhood", these several, separate states were independent countries. They had no signal, no icon behind which to rally.

Time Again For Brady Campaign To Discredit Itself

Since its inception as the National Council to Control Handguns over 30 years ago, the Brady Campaign has premised its entire agenda on the notion that having more gun control laws and, therefore, fewer guns, means that crime must necessarily decrease.

History has not been kind to the group’s delusion, however. In recent decades, the severity of gun control laws has been diminished at the federal, state and local levels, the number of guns has increased by over four million a year on average, and today, the nation’s murder and total violent crime rates are at 45-year and 35-year lows, respectively.

If you’re a gun control group, this isn’t the kind of thing you want to put in your press releases to the Washington Post, of course. So, every year the Brady Campaign instead runs a little gimmick where it assigns arbitrary school-grade values to whatever gun control laws the group happens to be pushing at the moment. And since most states don’t have the laws Brady advocates, Brady gives most states very low grades. Naturally, gun control supporters plaster Brady’s school-grade nonsense on the pages of newspapers around the country, hoping people will take it seriously.

Afghan officials: Airstrike kills 27 civilians

Cabinet describes NATO attack as ‘unjustifiable’; U.S. general apologizes.
Oh, we're terribly sorry that your innocent sovereign citizens were murdered by our imperial army. They were just in the wrong place at the wrong time, mind you. We do hope that you don't take it too badly.

U.S. civilians killed on 9/11: 2,973*

Innocent Afghani civilians killed by coalition forces: 8,309*
Innocent Iraqi citizens killed by coalition forces: 815,411*

American citizens sent to their deaths by the U.S. government in the improperly named "war on terror": 5,290*

Ratio: 280-1

Two hundred eighty to one. For every innocent person killed on 9/11 by Saudi Arabian, Yemeni and Egyptian terrorists the United State government has murdered 278 innocent foreign sovereigns and sent two (2) additional U.S. citizens to their deaths.

Great job. Keep up the good work. Go U.S.A.

Union, Confederacy Make Peace at CCS

Imagine Civil War Gens. Ulysses S. Grant and A.P Hill standing next to each other and holding a cordial conversation.

That was just one of several significant moments at this year’s history fair in Culpeper Christian School’s multipurpose room Thursday.

Sporting makeshift gray beards, 13-year-old eighth-graders Preston Boxley portrayed the fearless Union leader, while Chance Marshall personified the brave Confederate who grew up on Main and Davis streets.

“History is alive here in Culpeper,” said Brad Hales, CCS history teacher and pastor at Reformation Lutheran Church.

We Should Not Honor Secessionists?

In response to an article in The Post and Courier:

This yankee carpetbagging indoctrinate has no idea what "patriotism" is. To him, one can only be patriotic if defending Uncle Sugar and the invasion of sovereign States under false pretenses.

The many hundreds of thousands who died defending Dixie and the millions more who have suffered since for their defeat were patriots to the Southern Cause. The Southern Nation. The Southern Flag.

While he may not see it that way, patriotism was not always about "expressing their devoted love, support and defense of the United States of America." That country had reduced them to 2nd-class citizens in their own lands, removed from them any semblance of representation in government by undermining them with apportionment so lopsided that Southern economic and commercial interests were rendered moot and used their own compacts to the union as shackles with which to fasten their fates to those of the yankee nation.

I know I am preaching to the choir here, but it can't be said enough.

I still receive abrasive and argumentative responses from people who truly believe that the war was fought strictly over slavery and that anyone who would want to see a free Southron country "rise again" must surely want to reinstitute such conditions among the races.

What they fail to realize is that the Dear Leader (and many who have come before him) have already successfully endeavored to enslave us all to their fiat money scheme, their taxation and usury. When a man's wages are collected and distributed to a select group of people, it is theft, plain and simple and we are slaves to the forced tribute of the fruits of our labors to the issuance of government debt.


People may like to imply that Cajuns aren't very smart, but anybody who would build a city 10 feet below sea level in a hurricane zone and fill it with Democrats is a damn genius...

Ronald Belford "Bon" Scott (1946-1980)

30 years ago today, rock-and-roll lost one of its most iconic and blisteringly talented frontmen... Death by misadventure. Godspeed, Bon.

From Findagrave.com:

Knife Amnesty on Anglesey After Man Died From Stab

A two-month knife amnesty has begun on Anglesey following the death of a 21-year-old man from a knife wound.

The amnesty comes as a memorial walk was held for Leon Jones, a mechanic, who died following an incident in Holyhead in November last year.

Mr Jones's parents took part in the torch-lit march on Friday evening.

North Wales Police have set up amnesty bins at Holyhead, Llangefni, Menai Bridge, Gaerwen and Valley police stations.

Before Friday's march, David Hughes, one of the organisers, said: "We're hoping to educate the kids, to enlighten them that, it's not big and it's not clever to carry knives, and to dump the knife and, hopefully, save a life.

"They might do [want to carry a knife] for their own protection but they are, by statistics, likely to be hurt by their own knife.
This lunatic's perspective on safety and personal responsibility is the same one behind the Brady Center To Prevent Handgun Violence and Violence Policy Centers' agendas of total victim disarmament. If we follow in the example of Great Britain and turn our steely resolve into a state of lukewarm, milquetoast permissiveness then we will sacrifice the very liberties our ancestors bore out of the wilderness on the shoulders of war with one of the greatest empires (until today) that has ever existed.

Welcome to Uncle Sam's Plantation

An individual with which I have had cause to converse on many aspects of "liberty" and "freedom" through a common friend on Facebook presented the following in response to this article on townhall.com:

Welcome to Uncle Sam's Plantation by Richard N. Mumm

To me, it does not strain credulity to see the “rich capitalists” opting for the pseudo-security of the nanny state. Certainly there are many who still prefer to rise or fall on the merits of their ideas and of their hard work, but the vast majority of American business leaders are no longer “entrepreneurs,” but rather “bureaucrats” who are skilled enough and politically savvy enough to have risen through the ranks of management at large companies and now find themselves “leading” perhaps hundreds of thousands of employees and grossing upwards of a hundred billion US dollars in a year.

The REAL Abe Lincoln

Contained throughout this site is a collection of quotes from the United States 16th President, Abraham Lincoln. These quote have been divided as best we could, into topical categories, with little to no commentary added as they adequately stand alone in their meaning.

New London Land Grab - Five Years Gone By

The Supreme Court's 2005 decision in Kelo v. City of New London stands as one of the worst in recent years, handing local governments carte blanche to seize private property in the name of economic development. Now, four years after that decision gave Susette Kelo's land to private developers for a project including a hotel and offices intended to enhance Pfizer Inc.'s nearby corporate facility, the pharmaceutical giant has announced it will close its research and development headquarters in New London, Connecticut.

The aftermath of Kelo is the latest example of the futility of using eminent domain as corporate welfare. While Ms. Kelo and her neighbors lost their homes, the city and the state spent some $78 million to bulldoze private property for high-end condos and other "desirable" elements. Instead, the wrecked and condemned neighborhood still stands vacant, without any of the touted tax benefits or job creation.

Eliminating Lee and Jackson at St Christopher's School

(Courtesy of SLMNews 'Blog)

'A 95-year tradition at the heart of St. Christopher's School is changing because of its association with two Confederate generals from Virginia.

The private Episcopal school in Richmond is changing the names of its elementary literary societies from the Lees and Jacksons to the Chamberlayne Reds and Chamberlayne Grays in honor of school founder Churchill Gibson Chamberlayne. The school's colors are red and gray. The changes take effect next school year.

In the school's letter Wednesday to parents and alumni about the name change, Headmaster Charley Stillwell said that in recent years, "history has attached a stigma of prejudice and intolerance to some individuals and symbols connected with the Confederacy, making some of our internal and external community feel uncomfortable and marginalized."'

Is Iran Going to Be Another Japan?

It is neither our duty nor responsibility to presume to know what is best for the rest of the world. Rallying against terrorism isn't going to end terrorism. Their religion mandates that they convert or murder all "infidels".

China has made the right move. The weaker Amerikha becomes, the more likely it is that it will collapse under its own self-aggrandizing and hubris and the sooner we can take back control of our lives. Amerikha looks weak because they have elected lawyers and banksters to rule over them instead of exercising their own sovereign rights and keeping their government in check.

That we even considered moving the "terror" trials to New York was obscene.

A Revelation

Several of the founding fathers (and, subsequently, early Presidents of the United State) were land surveyors. Throughout its infancy, though plagued by foreign agitation and internal disagreements, the country remained cohesive and cogent.

Only after the people began electing lawyers and accountants to the highest office did things begin to rapidly decay. Suddenly, men who had not done an honest day's work in all their lives were commanding authority over an entire country.

Perhaps if a few more states elected surveyors and engineers, men of character and ethics, those states would find the strength to deny the federal government and form a new, liberty-minded country based on the framers' designs.

The "Restaurant" Bill

In the majority of states throughout the country it is perfectly legal for someone who has taken the proper steps, passed the required criminal background check and voluntarily registered himself with his state's government to lawfully carry a concealed firearm into his favorite dining establishment, even if they <gasp!> serve alcoholic beverages.

Virginia is a strange animal in this respect. According to [current] Virginia statutory law it is illegal for anyone not exempted by special status (§ 18.2-308 (B))to carry a concealed handgun into such an establishment. They may, however, openly carry a firearm into those same establishments and, if they so desire, enjoy an adult beverage.

There has been a recent and well-deserved resurgence of Constitutionally-minded legislation being introduced in the VA House and Senate pushing to bring Virginia's conceal-carry status more in line with the national standard, but the opponents of such legislation continue to assail us with the same talking-point arguments that have been statistically disproven in nearly every instance.

Why I Voted Democrat

(Courtesy of progunner1957, WR)

I voted Democrat because...

I love the fact that I can now marry whoever or whatever I want - and I've decided to marry one of my sheep.

Because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

Because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

Because Freedom of speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

Beginning Of The End: Sarah Palin Hijacks The Tea Party Movement

The tea party movement is dead. The one I was familiar with anyway. Judson Phillips held it down and Sarah Palin drove a stake right through its heart live last night on C-Span in front of an unsuspecting audience.

Sarah Palin didn’t give a tea party speech last night. She gave a partisan Republican address. It was a purely political speech designed to position her for a presidential run in 2012 or 2016. Period. She wasn’t there to celebrate the organic nature of a movement she had nothing to do with creating. She was there to co-opt the name and claim the brand as hers. And she did.

Marvel Comics: Captain America Says Tea Parties Are Dangerous and Racist

I don't even know what to say to this.

Marvel Comic’s Captain America is the mightiest soldier with the super powerful secret soldier formula that makes him a super man. Sadly, this muscle bound hero that took on the whole Nazi army during WWII seems to be afraid of those American people who’ve joined the Tea Party movement. Not only is Cappy quaking in his little red booties, but he’s sure that the Tea Party folks are dangerous racists, too.

Isn’t it wonderful that a decades old American comic book hero is now being used to turn readers against our very political system, being used to slander folks that are standing up for real American principles in real life — and one called “Captain America” at that?

Not Your Father's Army

Most of us Americans have a deep and abiding respect and admiration for our country's fighting men who have served--and are serving--within the US Armed Forces. We appreciate their willingness to put themselves in harm's way for the preservation of our nation's liberty and independence. We honor their sacrifice. Indeed, many of us share that sacrifice with the deaths, dismemberments, and paralysis of our most cherished loved ones who were killed or injured in the line of duty.

It is time, however, that we awaken to the reality of what our military is becoming and where it is heading. Suffice it to say, this is not your father's army.

Council of Governors Takes Shape

As I have already written, the creation of a CG should be of serious concern to all liberty loving Americans. That more of us are not as concerned as we should be can be traced to the mistaken belief that the American people have nothing to fear from an overreaching federal government. This is pure folly! As I have said many times, we have far more to fear from Washington, D.C., than from Iran, Iraq, North Korea, or any other potential terrorist state. It is Washington, D.C.,--and Washington, D.C., alone--that has the power, opportunity, and propensity to squash our freedom and sell us into tyranny.

Admittedly I know very little about the process or purpose behind this "Council" so I have only to pray that Mr. McDonnell, Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, takes this opportunity to tell the Marxist-in-Chief what he can do with his health bills, his budgets, his industry and banking takeovers and his smarmy, apologist, self-righteous demeanor.

If your Governor is on the "list" I encourage you to contact them and, rather than demand that they decline to participate, that they scream from their seat on the council that the people of these several states have had quite enough of Washington's tyranny.

What Would You Do to This Dirtbag?

Warning: foul, ghetto, hood-rat language and absolute, complete disdain for whites:

As you watch this video, think to yourself, at what point you would be justified to use deadly force... if you were carrying your gun, at what point would you shoot?

After watching the video and answering these questions for yourself, see my comments below…

There is no excuse NOT to own a firearm. A personal defense weapon is your ONLY ANSWER when a resentful, desperate, drug-addled thug is destroying your property and physically challenging your right to exist.

The ONLY answer to this kind of open and notorious sub-saharan savagery is to meet it with deadly force.

License to Kill? Intelligence Chief Says U.S. Can Take Out American Terrorists

The director of national intelligence affirmed rather bluntly today that the U.S. intelligence community has authority to target American citizens for assassination if they present a direct terrorist threat to the United States.

There is no article or Amendment to the Constitution authorizing such activity. We the PEOPLE may as well claim that all sovereign citizens hereby have the authority to target U.S. GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS for assassination if they present a direct threat to Constitutional liberty and fundamental human rights.

And they do. So they should consider themselves marked men living on borrowed time.

The "Green" Police

This was an ad for the new Audi "green" diesel that ran during Superbowl XLIV:

Don't believe for one moment that there aren't people out there (Al Gore, Ed Begley, Jr., etc) who weren't masturbating feverishly when this commercial ran.

This is their wettest dream ever come true. With international events like the Copenhagen Climate "summit" we are only a UN "treaty" away from the EPA being given DHS and FEMA autonomy and super-authority.

This ad is more Orwellian than 1984...

Where To Start "Fixing" the Country

From an exchange on War Rifles (note: I am not the one running for NC Delegate)

Well folks,

This used to be my primary networking board before I got hell bent on Ron Paul, and since 2007, I have done pretty much nothing but Constitutional politics.

I have a plan that could affect a restoration of the Constitutional order, peacefully and politically, but it starts in the State houses rather than the US Congress and the White House. Problem is, it is hard to convince all of these activists to pay less attention to the glamorous US Congress races, and instead pay attention to the mundane State Assembly races.

I myself am running for NC State House, with an agenda to introduce 10th Amendment State Sovereignty, Firearms Freedom, HealthCare Freedom, and Energy Marketplace Freedom acts, but with most of the focus in the movement invested at the Federal level, I am not sure how it is going to work out.

More Federal Mandates = Tyranny

Under a new FCC rule, anyone who uses a wireless microphone that operates in the 700 MHz Band will have to stop operating their wireless microphone no later than June 12, 2010.

Because the government has now seen fit to commandeer another range of radio spectrum for their own purposes, nearly every single musician I personally know (and they are legion) who owns a wireless microphone or transmitter would be forced to "trade up" or buy a new unit.

This is utter bollocks. It would cost thousands of dollars to replace the units I have.

They can go to hell. It's time to make a stand.
