I've been saying these things in one way or another for years. I just couldn't have said it any better than this...
From The Anchoress:

We must repeat, over and over, that Liberty is the means by which we created creatures are meant to live and to grow and be. That Liberty lives in the Truth. That Liberty lives where people can speak freely, without fear of injury or reprisals. That Liberty lives only when the press is free and unencumbered – when it is detached from events instead of entwined in them. That Liberty lives when people refuse to be intimidated into silence or acquiescence, whether in the workplace or within the community. That Liberty is the fragile thing that diminishes whenever one refuses to acclaim it for oneself.

Happy Christmas - We Just Lost Our Sovereignty

>> December 25, 2009

While perusing the excellent links in the iOTW list mentioned before, I ran across this little gem of information and a handy discussion thereof... Interpol is now above the law in the US due to an executive order signed by our great apologist, Barack Obummer. Every American needs to be aware of this abomination from Obamanation.
Get ready for another run on guns and ammo.
Thanks to pamibe and BigFurHat

Update: Found an interesting article with a slightly different take on the same subject over at Flopping Aces.
No matter which view one takes of this EO amendment, it's clear to me that "change" surely has come to the WH, and it isn't in our best interest as Americans.

Merry Christmas from the Robot!
The crazy folks at iOTW have graciously honored this blog with a reach around today. To them I owe a warm cup of eggnog and a huge dose of gratitude. They have showered this humble blog with hits never before seen. Much obliged!

To all the newcomers, y'all come on in. Take your shoes off and stay awhile. The coffee's brewing and there's a fire under the mantle. Wait a minute, I don't have a mantle. Fire! Fire! Someone get the extinguisher!

Peace to all, and Thanks again iOTW.

Merry Christmas! From Harry Reid

>> December 24, 2009

I truly wish I could have written just a light-hearted Ho Ho Ho or something today but I awoke this morning to the sound of our Constitution being crumpled up like an old newspaper and thrown in the waste bin or used to light a fire.

Even though the Senate passed their version of a Health Care takeover this morning, I find a small comfort in knowing the fight is not over. Our Texas Governor is calling for other Governors to battle this P.O.S. by way of the Tenth Amendment and any other way possible. Here is a link to the letter I am told was sent to other State Governors that may be willing to join in the fray.

While I don't agree with Governor Perry on everything, I will praise him when praise is due. We need to acknowledge and encourage Gov. Perry and any other lawmaker willing to stand up for our rights.

The big spenders in the Senate (with our money) this morning also passed a measure that increases the debt limit to unprecedented levels (12.4 trillion dollars).

Who wouldn't be able to have a Merry Christmas with that kind of cash? This is freakin ridiculous.

I'm off to find the rum and eggnog.

Sincerely though, I do wish you a Merry Christmas and while you are at it, say a prayer for our nation and its leaders. They need it badly.

Call or Email Your Senators! Keep The Pressure On!

>> December 23, 2009

Here is the email I sent to mine:

Dear Senator Hutchison,
I'm very concerned about the over reaching arm our government has grown. I am opposed to the takeovers and bailouts and this monstrous healthcare bill being voted on this Christmas. What a pitiful present to give to the American people. Please, I urge you to help in obstructing it's passage in any way possible. I am also against any increase in the debt limit that might get voted on this week or in the future. Thank you for serving the Great State of Texas.

Recon Afghanistan

>> December 21, 2009

Some of you may have gotten this in an email. I can't verify it. Wouldn't know how except maybe Snopes or Fact Check but the fact is I don't care. It's a good story and it rings true to me. The point is, remember the good guys are keeping the bad guys busy over there. And to remind us all to thank them when we can.

From the Sand Pit. It's freezing here. I'm sitting on hard, cold dirt between rocks and shrubs at the base of the Hindu Kush Mountains , along the Dar 'yoi Pomir River , watching a hole that leads to a tunnel that leads to a cave. Stake out, my friend, and no pizza delivery for thousands of miles.

I also glance at the area around my ass every ten to fifteen seconds to avoid another scorpion sting. I've actually given up battling the chiggers and sand fleas, but them scorpions give a jolt like a cattle prod. Hurts like a bastard. The antidote tastes like transmission fluid, but God bless the Marine Corps for the five vials of it in my pack.

The one truth the Taliban cannot escape is that, believe it or not, they are human beings, which means they have to eat food and drink water. That requires couriers and that's where an old bounty hunter like me comes in handy. I track the couriers, locate the tunnel entrances and storage facilities, type the info into the handheld, and shoot the coordinates up to the satellite link that tells the air commanders where to drop the hardware. We bash some heads for a while, and then I track and record the new movement.

It's all about intelligence. We haven't even brought in the snipers yet. These scurrying rats have no idea what they're in for. We are but days away from cutting off supply lines and allowing the eradication to begin.

I dream of bin Laden waking up to find me standing over him with my boot on his throat as I spit into his face and plunge my nickel-plated Bowie knife through his frontal lobe. But you know me, I'm a romantic. I've said it before and I'll say it again: This country blows, man. It's not even a country. There are no roads, there's no infrastructure, there's no government. This is an inhospitable, rock pit shit hole ruled by eleventh century warring tribes. There are no jobs here like we know jobs.

Afghanistan offers two ways for a man to support his family: join the opium trade or join the army. That's it. Those are your options. Oh, I forgot,you can also live in a refugee camp and eat plum-sweetened, crushed beetle paste and squirt mud like a goose with stomach flu, if that's your idea of a
party. But the smell alone of those 'tent cities of the walking dead' is enough to hurl you into the poppy fields to cheerfully scrape bulbs for eighteen hours a day.

I've been living with these Tajiks and Uzbeks, and Turkmen and even a couple of Pushtuns, for over a month-and-a-half now, and this much I can say for sure: These guys, all of 'em, are Huns... Actual, living Huns. They LIVE to fight. It's what they do. It's ALL they do. They have no respect for anything, not for their families, nor for each other, nor for themselves. They claw at one another as a way of life. They play polo with dead calves and force their five-year-old sons into human cockfights to defend the
family honor. Huns, roaming packs of savage, heartless beasts who feed on each other's barbarism. Cavemen with AK-47's. Then again, maybe I'm just cranky.

I'm freezing my ass off on this stupid hill because my lap warmer is running out of juice, and I can't recharge it until the sun comes up in a few hours. Oh yeah! You like to write letters, right? Do me a favor, Bizarre. Write a letter to CNN and tell Wolf and Anderson and that awful, sneering, pompous
Aaron Brown to stop calling the Taliban 'smart..' They are not smart. I suggest CNN invest in a dictionary because the word they are looking for is 'cunning.' The Taliban are cunning, like jackals and hyenas and wolverines. They are sneaky and ruthless, and when confronted, cowardly. They are hateful, malevolent parasites who create nothing and destroy everything else. Smart. Pfft, yeah, they're real smart.

They've spent their entire lives reading only one book (and not a very good one, as books go) and consider hygiene and indoor plumbing to be products of the devil. They're still figuring out how to work a Bic lighter. Talking to a Taliban warrior about improving his quality of life is like trying to teach an ape how to hold a pen; eventually he just gets frustrated and sticks you in the eye with it.

OK, enough. Snuffle will be up soon, so I have to get back to my hole. Covering my tracks in the snow takes a lot of practice, but I'm good at it.

Please, I tell you and my fellow Americans to turn off the TV sets and move on with your lives. The story line you are getting from CNN and other news agencies is utter bullshit and designed not to deliver truth but rather to keep you glued to the screen through the commercials. We've got this one under control The worst thing you guys can do right now is sit around analyzing what we're doing over here, because you have no idea what we're doing, and really, you don't want to know. We are your military, and we are doing what you sent us here to do, keep you safe, & keep the fight off of American soil.

Kay Bailout Hutchison Has To Go

I take a little time off and look what happens...
Hutchison Votes With Democrats To End Republican Filibuster, Accelerating Health Care Bill’s Passage

and from RedState:

...she accelerated it getting to the Senate floor in a bit of Senate gamesmanship.
She wants to be Governess? I don't think so missy...

Speaking of the Health Care Bill, RedState has a prescription for killing it. Where is Jack Kevorkian when we really need him to put this bill out of our misery? It would be nice if the extraordinary measures RedState speaks of weren't necessary. It would be nicer if we could just drive a stake through the heart of this vampire of a legislative monstrosity. Alas, such is not the case.
