We May Never Get Another Chance to Save America

Time is fleeting.  Time spent can never be recovered and time is slipping through the hour glass.  Where did mife go?  Better yet, what did I do with my life?  Except for what I invested in our children, what thing of significance did I really leave behind?  What GREAT thing did I ever do?
Never give up. Even though I have 10 years on Coach Dave, I still ask myself these same questions.  And the Coach has a good point. Think about it.
“Will the person you are worrying so much about offending cry at your funeral?”

We May Never Pass This Way Again

Like Columbus in the olden days, we must gather all our courage
Sail our ships out on the open seas. Cast away our fears and all the years that come and go. Take us up, always up.  We may never pass this way again.
  — Jim Seals and Dash Croft 1973.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)I will turn 67 on November 26th.  How is it possible that I could actually be this age?  Sixty seven is what I would expect my father to be.  But he is no longer with us.  He would have been 100 on October 12th.

Dad would be surprised to be 100.  That is something he would expect HIS father to be.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)Time is fleeting.  Time spent can never be recovered and time is slipping through the hour glass.  Where did my life go?  Better yet, what did I do with my life?  Except for what I invested in our children, what thing of significance did I really leave behind?  What GREAT thing did I ever do?

Most of us live our lives laboring in obscurity.  The world conforms us into its own image.  When most of us look into the rear view mirror we see nothing but speed bumps and skid marks, sad reminders of what might have been had we taken the time to more carefully plan our journey through history.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)But here we sit in 2019, some still searching for significance, as we become more and more aware of the emptiness of material things.  It is so much more fulfilling to live on after we die through PEOPLE than it is to live on through THINGS.

What have you done for Christ?  What moment of bravery most sticks out in your mind as you look back over the years and the myriad opportunities that you had to make a difference for the Kingdom?  As old age and eventual death blow over the hills of your life what proud thoughts warm your neck?  What thing of bravery have you ever done?

Combat Shooter's Handbook Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsCourage is a rare quality, especially in today’s world where everywhere you look you are being urged to conform, to remain silent, to keep your thoughts to yourself.  Have you ever looked over your chilly shoulder and longed to return to a specific moment in time when you had the chance to make a difference and didn’t?  When you had the chance to SAY your peace and decided instead to KEEP the peace?  Am I the only one who often longs for the one chance to go back and say what only I know I should have said?

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual  Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewIs there anything more regretful than a missed opportunity?

Perhaps it is old age, or maybe it is just crankiness, but I find that the older I get the less I care about what others think about me.  Oh, I want others to like me.  I want to be invited to all the right gatherings.  But I have reached the point in my life where I would rather speak the truth and be hated than speak a lie just to be loved.

A wise mentor once told me that life would be much easier and my conscience much clearer if I simply asked myself one question before choosing to bite my own tongue.

“Will the person you are worrying so much about offending cry at your funeral?”  That one answer so simplified my life and opened my mouth.

Apathy and silence is destroying America.

Why have Christians become so afraid to offend?  Why have we sat silently on the sidelines while the Devil and his minions have run roughshod over everything we hold dear?  Why have we remained mute in the face of evil, as if our silence somehow brings glory to our King?

Did you know that Jesus was called “the rock of offense?”  Did you know that He warned us that the world would hate us because they hated him first?  Did it ever dawn on you that they crucified Jesus because they hated his message?  You often can measure a man by the quality of his enemies.  Jesus had enemies.  Does that surprise you?  People actually HATED Jesus Christ?

Sadly, many still do today.

Why do Christians worry about the world loving them?  Why are we so focused on loving those who hate the Cross?  Jesus warned us to “love not the world nor the things of the world.”  Do you often find yourself loving what Jesus told us we should hate?

America sits at a crossroads and the hour glass is running dry.  No matter who wins the Presidency, America will never be the same.  If you think the haters of God are crazy now wait until the reality of “four more years” stiff arms them straight in the face.

If Trump loses…payback will be hell from the demons that occupy the swamp.  Either way, America is in for some rough sledding.

It is time for Christians to stand up and speak up.  Now is not the time to go limp.  Don’t cry “peace, peace, when there is no peace.”

My Dad was one of the Greatest Generation.  They turned back the greatest threat to liberty that this nation has ever known.

But those were our foreign enemies. All American was united in their common hatred of our common foe.

But today, our enemies are domestic.  Instead of bombs they use words.  In place of guns they use courts.  Mob violence is upon us.  Heroes will be made in the next 362 days.  Everyday Mom and Pops must rise to the occasion.  Now is the time for the voice of the church to ring out.

Through the hour glass of time who can explain why the Lord allowed us to be here now. It is time for us to be brave.   We must “sail our ships out on the open seas.”  Let us not miss this opportunity to defend our King.

Don’t miss your chance to be a hero.  All of Heaven is watching.  Have you been called into the Kingdom for such a time as this?

We may never pass this way again…

“White Privilege” Is A Racist Enterprise

It is now common… to hear “I hate white people” in supposedly educated circles… among people with university degrees.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)  The only thing that bothers me about white people is that we are the only race in recorded human history to have ever actively participated in its own genocide. How about the two great World Wars I and II? How many cures for cancer or trips to the moon fell face down in that French mud? And who was always the first over the top of the trench? The leadership.

We are the only race to have ever voluntarily limited its reproduction rate (via the pill, abortion, etc) for the “greater good”– having suckered The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) to the radical environmentalists. While “people of color” continue to reproduce like barn rats.

And now we continue to destroy ourselves by meekly kowtowing to the “politically correct” demands that we openly recognize (fess up to) our “White Privilege.”

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)Having been born in a sharecropper’s shack on a wore out, dry land cotton farm in Erath County, Texas, I have first hand experience with John Steinbeck style “Grapes of Wrath.” So, if there are any of you sumbitches out there that want a share of “white privilege,” you are welcome to mine. Come and get it.

by Paul Rosenberg at FREEMAN’S PERSPECTIVE

White Privilege” Is A Racist Enterprise

Most of the time I live in my own little world, trying to understand and to build good things. But once in a while new pollutions seep in and require my attention. And so it has become with “white privilege.”

It is now common (and I can hardly believe I’m writing this, even though I know it’s true) to hear “I hate white people” in supposedly educated circles… among people with university degrees.

And so I’ll deal with this new barbarity and get it out of my way:

Combat Shooter's Handbook Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other Misfits White privilege is a verdict. It is a conclusion, not a question and not an argument. It claims abuse on the part of the white person… on the part of all white persons.

The verdict is based wholly on skin color. Understand, please, that this is the same as any other ethnic slur, up to and including the so-called n-word. It applies directly to skin tone, condemning a billion individuals at once.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewWhite privilege is absolutely divisive. It claims that white skin defines an individual as a recipient of stolen goods, as a thief, as an abuser, and as an unenlightened ignoramus. All white people are defined this way by the term. It is yet another in the long stream of us-them divides that foment violence. From petty crime to total war, this is the root.

White privilege is anti-mind. It displaces observation, reason and balance. It barbarically shoves a billion people into a single mold and condemns the lot of them.

White privilege is dogma. The use of white privilege dances past reason and steps quickly past the slow and thorny process of trying facts and discovering justice. Rather, its user gets instant status by upholding the dogma that white people are inherently flawed, poisoned, stupid and inferior.

White privilege is full-blown arrogance. The user of the term claims to know everything relevant about you, your history and your soul. And this stands upon group-think and self-aggrandizement. The user surrounds him or herself with a chorus of fellow dogmatists, and jointly they undertake to praise themselves by degrading others.

White privilege is envy, sublimating into hate. White privilege is ultimately the slogan of people who hold painful opinions of themselves. Wishing to be free of those feelings is understandable, but envy weaponizes the pain and freezes it in place. And what one envies, one soon enough hates.

Someone who thinks of himself or herself as a competent actor in the universe does not require the degradation of others (much less an entire race) to feel good about themselves. Rather they work, they build, and they seek to cooperate with other people of goodwill. Calling white privilege is an attempt to subdue people that its user sees as above them; to bring them down and to supplant them, ending up with their stuff. It is a crime very much like communism, and if left unchecked it will have similar results.

White privilege is a weapon. Make no mistake, calling out white privilege is an attempt to maim, to diminish and to inflict anguish.

Ultimately, white privilege is devolution. It is the road back to ritual slaughter and killing the other simply because he or she is other.

All Racism Is Poison

Racism is despicable wherever it appears. We are all individuals. Skin color, language, etc. are trivial differences. More than that, they are accidents.

One of the oldest civilizing truths is that justice should be blind. White privilege is precisely the opposite of that. As is any other flavor of racism.

All forms of racism are dark, degrading and devolutionary. This one included.

Thank You Is Not Enough

My Marine Corps career spanned some 35 years (with a lot of reserve and broken time) and included 2 wars–Vietnam and Desert Storm.

I’m a slow learner. It took me some 45 years to come to the realization that NOTHING I had ever done for the Marine Corps ever had ANYTHING to do with “freedom in America” or “protecting the constitution” or any other of that flag waving horse shit.

EVERYTHING I ever did for the Marine Corps had EVERYTHING to do with the aggrandizement of the state and the enrichment of the politicos and their cronies in the military-industrial-congrssional-educational-and law enforcement Cartel.

In short, I was a dupe.

Furthermore, it pains me to realize that the uS government used to pay me to kill people who were just exactly like the people who run the uS government.

And please do not “thank” me for my service. I did not do anything that anybody should be thankful for. In fact I did a lot of things that we all should be ashamed of.

Yours for freedom in our lifetimes. — jtl, 419

PS. There is absolutely nothing in any of those fly farm hell holes worth even one of my good Marines.

Land & Livestock International, Inc.

The “Masters of War” learned from Vietnam; next time do not impose a military draft, buy up and consolidate the media to control the messaging and reporting, and then get the entertainers and talking heads to celebrate anyone who wears a uniform as a “hero” for keeping us safe and protecting our “freedoms”…. So any questioning or protest of our wars abroad risks being viewed by one’s fellows as not supporting our troops sent into harm’s way on what history has shown most often to be a lie.
