Patriotism is NOT a Sin!

July 4, 2011
 Kris Karrel notes: The following is a post  I ran across on a forum. Send this to every Patriot you know, but please include the proper accreditation.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!!!

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died.

Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.

Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.

What kind of men were they?

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists.

Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated, but they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.

Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.

Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife’s bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For For more than a year he lived in forests
and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished.

So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently thank these patriots. It’s not much to ask for the price they paid.

REMEMBER: FREEDOM IS NEVER FREE!

I hope you will show your support by sending this to as many people as you can, please. It’s time we get the word out that patriotism is NOT a sin, and the Fourth of July has more to it than beer, picnics, and baseball games.

HOOYAH U.S.A!!!!!!
Lieutenant (and future Mrs.) BUD/S USN!!

On This Memorial Day, Let US Ask

May 30, 2011

On this Memorial Day, more than any one before, let us ask ourselves: What did our patriots die for?

Did our Forefathers gamble their lives, their fortunes, their sacred honor so that we the People might, on this day, find ourselves and our children threatened with a present and future slavery to a Congress and White House unwilling to serve us and our Constitution?

Did the boys at the Alamo lay down their lives so that Mexicans might, on this day, overrun our borders with the feigned indifference and/or secret complicity of our Congress and the White House?

Did our soldiers fight and die in numerous Wars so that a new, more elite batch of foreign tyrants operating domestically in Washington DC might rule us in our America?

Was the ultimate sacrifice made by every patriot throughout our history for nothing?

By the will of our Creator, let us redefine Memorial Day to a day when all Americans–regardless of race, creed or color–renew that historic and sacred pledge to replenish Jefferson’s Tree of Liberty with not only our blood, but the blood of tyrants, both foreign and, especially now, domestic.

How better can we the People of these United States honor the great and costly sacrifices so willingly laid upon the altar of our Freedom than to declare this Memorial Day, and every one after, not only a day of solemn and humble remembrance and thanksgiving, but also, when so necessary, a vigorous call to arms.

A Solution for America

April 25, 2011

I have a solution for America–withdraw. At least for a time. Withdraw from the world completely. Yes, it will make for some incredibly hard times here for a while, but no worse than what the Soros/globalists/New World Order puppets of both parties in Congress and the White House have planned for us.

No more foreign oil. No more imports from China or elsewhere. Recall all our troops. Kick out the UN and send them not another penny. No more foreign aid or food sent anywhere. Close all of our military bases outside of our borders. With all that extra manpower, we can close our borders. Export all illegal aliens and anchor babies. Our new national motto: if we don’t make it here, we don’t need it.

It’ll take less than six months of shared sacrifice on our parts before the world begs. Beats decades of servitude to puppet politicians in Washington fronting for global tyrants bent on bleeding us dry of our resources (ask yourselves why Russia, China and Brazil can drill for oil in the Gulf, but we can’t). Like stripping a band aid. You want it quick or hair by hair?

I’m through being nice, generous, charitable, whatever, with the world. Time to take care of our own for a while and let them solve their own problems for a change.

Operation Pinkslip

December 20, 2010

Well, no one has ever accused me of sitting around waiting to be robbed. But that’s what we’re all doing–sitting around, waiting for both so-called parties in Congress and the puppet in the White House to rob us of our country on behalf of their ringleader, George Soros. They would murder America, if we let them.

All this time, since 2008, we’ve been REACTING to the Soros/Obama plan instead of ACTING on our own plan and in our own best interests.

We’re playing the part of willing victims, just like Soros/Obama expects us to do. And since I am not a victim, but an American, and I’m not one to nitpick without offering a solution, I propose OPERATION PINKSLIP.

Granted, the Soros/Obama regime has planned for every contingency. Or so they think. If we go for our guns, we get martial law. If we wait like good little mutton entrees to “vote” in 2012, we get more of the same. If we even get to 2012 before any number of manufactured crises kick in–food shortage, currency collapse, economic and political retardation and death.

These Progressive traitors, these radicals praying for violence, have every avenue covered except one–PEACE.

Peace is a beautiful weapon. Ask Mahatma Ghandi and Martin Luther King, Jr. If goons strike violently at any one member of your peaceful army, they show their cowardice and serve only to bring you more recruits.

Soros/Obama and the Progressives in Congress fear our PEACE.

I suggest that in the Spring, those patriots who would dare emulate our Forefathers should start out for Washington DC with the express goal of firing all 535 members of Congress as well as the marxist in the White House and all his minions. We converge on the steps of the Capitol and at the White House on July 4, 2011, by the millions, we issue our pinkslips and refuse to leave until our recently discharged employees do.

In the meantime, those who cannot physically join us can remain at home, organizing new elections for the recently vacated seats as well as the residence on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Progressives need violence to effect their FINAL SOLUTION to the AMERICAN PROBLEM.

So, we must give them what they cannot fight–PEACE. We must, in effect, shut this country down to keep our Constitution, our liberties, and our children’s futures intact. Soros/Obama will shut our country down in their own best interests, so we might as well preempt them and their plans.

What the hell do we have to lose? Soros/Obama will take everything from us if we continue to REACT like good little victims instead of ACTING like the Americans we are, and ACTING PEACEFULLY en masse in our own best interests.

So, pass the word. PEACE is a beautiful weapon, and a revolution fought with PEACE as our SWORD AND SHIELD results in far fewer casualties than any armed uprising.

Operation Pinkslip. July 4. And please do, write your congressmen and tell them we’re coming. The idea of millions of American employers paying a visit to DC to fire their treasonous employees might serve as enough of a deterrent to make Operation Pinkslip entirely unnecessary.

But don’t count on it.

Oh, and by the way, MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Geary-Khamis: The International Dollar You’ve Never Heard Of

July 10, 2010

From Wikipedia:”The Geary-Khamis dollar, also known as the international dollar, is a hypothetical unit of currency that has the same purchasing power that the U.S. dollar had in the United States at a given point in time. The years 1990 or 2000 are often used as a benchmark year for comparisons that run through time.

It is based on the twin concepts of purchasing power parities (PPP) of currencies and the international average prices of commodities. It shows how much a local currency unit is worth within the country’s borders. It is used to make comparisons both between countries and over time. For example, comparing per capita gross domestic product (GDP) of various countries in international dollars, rather than based simply on exchange rates, provides a more valid measure to compare standards of living. It was proposed by Roy C. Geary in 1958 and developed by Salem Hanna Khamis in 1970 to 1972.

The term, while not in widespread use, is sometimes used by international organizations such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund in their published statistics.

Figures expressed in international dollars cannot be converted to another country’s currency using current market exchange rates; instead they must be converted using the country’s PPP exchange rate used in the study.”

There’s little information on the Web, nothing in the news, about this fabricated dollar. And once we’re all using our debit and credit cards, our every purchase tracked, once the need for actual physical currency is gone, what’s left of our freedoms?

Here’s another link that says virtually the same thing about this hush-hush “international” dollar.

So, if the standard is changed, if the US dollar is no longer the base currency of measurement for the entire world, what then? How much do you think your property, your labor, your goods, the food you eat, will be worth in, say, Chinese yuan?

The “international” dollar. Out of very thin air. Why collapse our currency? Anyone?

How else do you reduce us all and our American standard of living to that of the third-world serfs already conquered in Europe, Australia, Africa and the like?

Collapse the currency, the economy, devalue drastically the human and material resources of an entire nation, and, equally if not more importantly, discount the value of land. When US dollars are worth Geary-Khamis pennies, my house won’t be worth diddly-squat, especially to someone loaded with Billions or Trillions of that brand new international currency. Gee, wonder how much Soros has stashed in his mythical bank account.

Tell me this isn’t the richest Progressives’ game. The annual Bilderberg meeting this year was more to laugh behind all our backs because, like this truth or not, they’re winning, against all of us–because we the People won’t stand together.

Independence Day, At Last

July 4, 2010

Nature teaches that any species who outgrows its resources or controlled environment faces a major correction to its population, up to and including outright extinction. Whether by political design or disease or starvation or privation or pollution, or even a breech of our round blue environ from without, the species Human is no exception.

The masses arguing over non-issues introduced as cover for the would-be Lords fighting each other for control of this round blue Petri dish labeled Earth are just begging for a rather rude and crude global correction, one we will all suffer equally if we collectively allow them to continue their gang warfare unimpeded.

Consider yeast cultured in a plain bowl. Each living molecule of the organism requires food and a hospitable environment to grow. One small misstep, one variation from these optimum conditions–limited fuel, not enough or too much heat in the environment–the yeast collapses and dies. This is a rather simplistic example of a natural correction. Now, whether our impending correction is self-induced or comes from without is anyone’s guess, but I’m praying that God, good Father and merciful, is going to let us all–good, bad and indifferent–feel his boot to our assets swiftly, catastrophically, strip the Band-Aid as it were, leaving but a smarting remnant to try this experiment again. That is, if he considers species Human worth saving at all.

I personally welcome an end to the global gamesmanship that would see an entire Gulf polluted with oil while the gang of Soros orgies with minions like Obama at the high altars of GREED and PENIS, aka EGO. He who dies with the most toys…wins what exactly? What is it that you think you actually take with you when you leave this planet? Penis stays here. Money stays here. Material possessions of every sort stay here. Self-proclaimed titles like Lord of Earth stay here. If, according to rudimentary physics, energy can never be destroyed, then apparently most of you have yet to consider whether you are an eternal energy housed in a temporary Human shell or just a wasted shell. The lot of you are looking more and more like the latter.

I’m bone-tired of entertaining the limited and misinformed opinions put forth by the rather fluffy young souls in our midst, souls the cosmic age-equivalent of elementary pupils who find the mere idea of a Mind behind this whole process of birth and rebirth too frighteningly large a concept for them to even marginally consider. That simple mathematics exists at all proves a Mind–nothing less could’ve created the very foundation upon which whole Universes are predicated.

Go ahead, call me, call every older soul certifiable who dares mention the larger scheme in play here beyond a single life on Earth. I’m not required to care about your names, your labels, your epithets or your opinion of me, of anything, anymore.

The concept of Earth as School, of each life spent as a single teaching moment in a growing list of them, might seem extreme on the surface, but so did the idea of a global conspiracy to bring about a One World Socialist Order at one time, until that arrogant moron Soros decided to try it. And if this impending planetary correction is, at least for some of us, graduation day from a course of life study whose syllabus includes the effects of the seven deadly sins on a weak and highly susceptible species Human, then I would have my soul right with God.

This schoolyard we call Earth will be cleared. And since I’ve now pointed this out to you numerous times in one setting, I have fully satisfied my moral obligation as an older soul to warn you of said correction. Let me say again, mainly for the eternal record: very sorry for your losses, both now and in the future, but I have this moment fulfilled my duty to both God and country. What happens next to billions of living Human souls of all cosmic ages when the correction, the graduation, the moment of truth, finally arrives no longer matters to me individually. You’re not listening anyway. You’re so sure you know all there is to know. Please continue to do just as your wizening hearts will.

It has become painfully obvious to anyone with more than just skin in this game that Truth no longer matters here on Earth anymore, not even in America.

“Accidents” of a magnitude as the Gulf spill are rarely timed with such efficiency; just as the bungling and outright intentional obstruction of the so-called cleanup effort is rarely accomplished with such overall efficacy. Yet, few Americans want to consider the whole of that and what it truly implies because then they might, just might, feel compelled by the last lingering shred of their morals and ethics to get off their assets and do something more constructive than rant and rail from the privacy of their home computers. Well, woe is me, too. Keep falling prey to the narcotic distractions injected like a junkie’s fix on a daily basis by the One World Media Machine; please do, keep fighting amongst yourselves over issues that mean little or nothing to your survival as a nation, as a planet, as a species, as an individual soul in the Universe at large. Pray you don’t have to come back and clean up after yourselves–if you happen to leave so much as a planet capable of sustaining life of a higher order than species Roach to come back to.

If you’ve hung with me thus far, know that I have already entered concepts and ideas into your thick heads, words that stick to the mind like glue, whether you focus on them, ignore them, understand them, pretend to forget them, hate them, or agree with the message, or not. From this moment on, you may no longer claim any valid excuse for doing absolutely nothing about the deplorable state of your nation, your world, your species, even if you act purely and selfishly on your soul’s behalf. What goes around, comes around, or doesn’t–get a dictionary and look up inertia or even karma. Ask yourself what happens if that God you love to disregard, that Mind you loudly declare impotent or even nonexistent decides you must repeat this course, from primordial soup to a last Decision to Act, all innumerable lives of it.

You can, of course, wait patiently for November and your vaunted ballot box, America, like Soros and the One World Media Machine want you to do. They know, better than most of you, that limiting your choices at said box is a prime way of taking your freedom without being overt. Ah, yes, be a good citizen and remember in November while, in the interim, oil continues to foul the Gulf; your so-called president is woefully, criminally derelict in his duties, yet remains unprosecuted; and the Soros Progressive agenda/coup is still being advanced–one Kagan, one new act of legislation at a time. It’s so much easier to wait to vote, to march once or twice in the streets carrying a sign that, in the end, accomplishes nothing of lasting import, so much easier to look the other way on crimes committed and unprosecuted at an alarming rate in your nation’s capital, isn’t it? Much easier than pledging your lives, your souls, your sacred honor, to gather in private homes and out of the way taverns, to arm yourselves with more than pithy slogans to defend all that’s left of Good. As a wiser man than me once said, you must give your life to save it. I would give my life, if only to save you and this nation and this species from yourselves. But you will have none of it.

At the very least, we the People should be squatting in this nation’s capital right now, camping on the lawns, in the forests, in the streets by the millions and refusing to leave until the direction of this country is bent to our will and the criminals purged from the White House and Capitol Hill. God forbid any of you so blessed with even a single life here in this most trying time of this American nation should actually decide to emulate the stellar example of your Forefathers in a timely-enough manner to save the last bastion of freedom on this Earth. Have you not seen the signs? Read the little articles here and there about the “need” for a “new” international currency? Soros will soon collapse the current international currency known as the US dollar to institute a currency of his own making. Where will that leave us all? Hungry, afraid, and still denying an international coup is presently underway? Brushing off the “extreme” notion that the Mind behind the scheme of all things might just be using this time to take full measure of each of our souls? What, pray tell, do you truly have to lose?

I completely understand now why Pontius Pilate washed his hands. There’s only so much any one person of conscience can say to a ravening mob of idiot children who’ve been led to believe there are no limits on their behavior, and no consequences to their actions, or lack thereof.

Perhaps this is my test, the most important lesson of my current life here on Earth–to realize finally and fully the utter futility of devoting a portion of the breath and time and energy of a life to the survival of a nation and a species fated to collapse, even to extinction. But I would be right with God, no matter how many ignorant, self-important schoolchildren wander by my tiny corner of this global playground to stick out their tongues and call me names. As a greater man than me once said, they know not what they do.

No, they truly don’t have even the most marginal clue.

Written Warning of Termination

March 10, 2010

Lest our Senators Baucus and Tester think I don’t care anymore what they do, I decided as one of their employers to give them a written warning of termination. So, I emailed them the same letter, the names changed where necessary, not that I think it will do any good, but again, I didn’t want them to think for one minute I’ve gone back to sleep. So here is the Baucus version–Tester got the same:

Look,

I’m going to say this to both you and [Tester] as one of your employers:

Blow off this reconciliation BS or announce your resignation.

A MAJORITY OF YOUR CONSTITUENTS, i.e. YOUR EMPLOYERS, don’t want this health care rammed down our throats, no matter how good you, who reside in your elitist ivory tower, think it is for us. WE THE PEOPLE DON’T WANT ANY LEGISLATION THAT MUST BE BOUGHT BY BRIBES IN ORDER TO BE PASSED. Tell me, isn’t bribery against the law? Why aren’t you bringing Obama up on charges then? Is that because you’re complicit in the crime?

I fully know I’m wasting my breath here, but I thought you’d like to know ONE BIG REASON why YOU’RE GOING TO BE FIRED by the peons you thought to rule when your time comes around.

And spare me the stump speeches and poor, poor pitiful stories, ok?

Man up, grow a pair, or resign. It’s the least you can do for all us little people you so willfully ignore.

No sooner had I clicked on publish (the above), I received the following response from Tester…as you can see, he ignored my request to spare me the stump speech…good thing it’s short…my one thought upon reading his reply is does he really believe his own BS or that of Obama’s? I’ll let you be the judge…He’s proud of his vote to screw us all–remember that in 2012…

Thank you for contacting me about health care reform.  It’s good hearing
from you.

I am proud of my vote for the Senate’s health care reform bill last
December.  The legislation wasn’t perfect, but I stand by my vote for this
bill because I believe it was right for Montana families, small businesses,
family farms and ranches, seniors and veterans.

The Senate health reform bill stops insurance companies from denying
coverage for pre-existing conditions.  It lowers the national deficit by
hundreds of billions of dollars, and it cuts waste and fraud to ensure that
Medicare is around for future generations.

If Congress does nothing to pass health care reform, health care costs will
continue to break Montana families and small businesses.  Medicare will go
bankrupt, and no one will hold health insurance companies accountable.

Here in the U.S. Senate, I will continue to fight for affordable, quality
health care coverage for all Montanans.  The people of this state deserve
nothing less.

I appreciate your perspective on this important issue.  Please don’t
hesitate to contact me again if I can be of further assistance.

Sincerely,

Jon Tester
United States Senator

A Thanksgiving Prayer

November 26, 2009

Lord God of all the Living Universe, God of Whom there is no image,

–Thank you for the Constitution of these United States, for once we knew we should be free.

–Thank you for the men and women of the Armed Forces who offer their lives in defense of America–no greater sacrifice is found.

–Thank you for our children, our future. May we not disappoint them–or you.

–Thank you for good friends and sworn enemies. Both teach us more about love and hate, trust and dishonesty, than we ever learn in church or school.

–Thank you for the athiests who daily prove your existence, lest their clamoring voices be raised against nothing but thin air.

–Thank you for what’s right in our world, and what’s wrong, that we may better know the difference, that we may all find the purpose–large or small–to our lives.

–Thank you.
