  • The barefoot one didn’t manage to freeze Mama. Reading this article, I’m not sure whether Colton Harris-Moore is a naive young kid or a crass hustler who’s going to head right straight for trouble again when they release him from prison this summer.
  • “This Bud’s for you, America.” Another one to read mainly because it’s by George Will, who writes like a barbed angel. The whole business with Budweiser’s temporary name change is as pathetic as it is cynical.
  • Why are house prices soaring across this Great Land of Budweiser? One guess.
  • When headlines lie: “American Airlines is fed up with the TSA and taking matters into its own hands.” Don’t we wish? But no, American Airlines is scared of losing money and having its service and employees reviled because of the TSA’s bad behavior. So it’s enabling the TSA in exactly the same sense a co-dependent enables an alcoholic.
  • Anybody up for 13 solid minutes of Hillary Clinton lies? No? Me, neither. Twenty years of them is enough, already. But for you who have stronger stomachs, here’s the video.
  • The bigotry continues. House v*tes to ban Confederate flags at V.A. cemeteries. Presumably even on the graves of men who fought for the Confederacy.
  • Not news to most here. But it’s been downhill since Jefferson wrote those famous words. Downhill as a nation, anyhow. As a government. But not all downhill for individuals determined to remain free.

    From the line in the airport picture, I see 10 individuals that need to be screened and the rest can be run through a metal detector right quick. Of course, I profiled, but there could more or less based on behavior not evident in the still shot. And the TSA feels it necessary to stick its hands down the panties of elderly, white, Germanic, Presbyterian, women from Albuquerque, for their own safety, because freeedum, of course. All the while the borders are wide open and anybody with a heartbeat is instantly made a citizen in cali and plane loads of who knows what are being flown in to keep them safe from the wars the NWO started in order to wreck any semblance of independence from global control.
    The letter says, but not out loud, that you are subsidizing the airlines by paying for security. I wonder how much a ticket would cost if the airlines had to protect their own property. The whole thing is a scam, get used to being watched and herded right into the freeedum education camps.
    Outlawing historic symbols, changing the meaning of words, taking down statues, deciding that the ideas some words convey should not be spoken, declaring the law old and not relevant, telling everyone to watch their neighbors trust only in your leaders and the best one yet, be afraid but we will keep you safe but be afraid. Any of this sound like the glorious revolution? If I had read, 20 years ago, what I just wrote, than I would have called a doctor and a priest for the the writer, but here we are.

    I’m still amazed at the incredible number of people who STILL put up with this insanity. I expected that the airports would be half empty soon after the naked scanners were put in place, but no… it seems people really don’t mind much being sexually molested – even their children and elders! So, I don’t have a lot of sympathy for people in these long lines. They don’t have to be there. Alternatives are available to most.

    The alternative available to everyone is just not to fly commercial. It is inconvenient, of course… But I’ve said many times that I won’t be flying again until my carry gun is welcome, and maybe I’m even given a small box of airline approved frangibles to load it with.

    Fred, well said. I doubt it’s intentional but the security theater show is yet another psychological conditioning mechanism accustoming the peons to being herded like cattle. Worse though is the demonstrated and reinforced impression that EVERYONE is a suspect and not to be trusted.

    Budweiser wants us to “embrace the optimism upon which the country was first built”? You mean kick out the tyrants and create our own brand new country?

    American Airlines will pour more money into the TSA cesspit? Idiots. TSA must die, and be replaced by frangible ammo vending machines.

    As we know, we’re just frogs in gradually heating water. Interestingly, George Wallace predicted that there would be a very strong reaction when citizens recognized the massive infringement of their liberties that would result from the Civil Rights Act.

    In a very good article on Ricochet titled “Going Down, ” he quotes a statement made by Franklin at the end of the Constitutional Convention:

    “In these Sentiments, Sir, I agree to this Constitution, with all its Faults, if they are such; because I think a General Government necessary for us, and there is no Form of Government but what may be a Blessing to the People if well administered; and I believe farther that this is likely to be well administered for a Course of Years, and can only end in Despotism as other Forms have done before it, when the People shall become so corrupted as to need Despotic Government, being incapable of any other.”

    Clearly, we’re just about there.

    Speaking of Confederates, I’m sure my dad, who passed tragically 31 years ago this August, is laughing in heaven knowing his body is at rest next to a Confederate officer! To think if we had put him on the right side of the two-space plot, he would’ve been under a crepe myrtle tree. I bet my mom, who now lays next to him under the shade, is happy with the arrangement!
