Seems I'm onto Something


It would seem that people prefer to ingest information through audio/video presentations rather than reading. Luckily, I can do that.

Introducing- Blasted Reality... Killing Time It's blogging, accelerated. I put a selection of my best work over there. In the future I will be putting way more than just my own crap up. Enjoy.

Alert type message: If you have never been to Dick Eats Bush go there and check it out. The guy that runs it is a friend of mine. It is great site, especially if you live in the herbally liberal Pacific NorthWest. He is in a bit of a bind, so if anyone out there could help him out a bit...

ps. You will still get to struggle through my long winded explanations of how and why we are doomed, if you feel so inclined. That will remain the tradition here.

First off I'm not buying the they didn't know crap about new recruits if they didn't know they are just morons.In past US wars, support was Damn close too 100 percent,It wasn't until the drug induced liberals from the 60's that support for our NATION in the time of war took a teasonous effect.Which has turned into a modern day Hate the Administration,protest the war,Protest everything mentallity

In the time of real America people voted for thier Presidents and accepted the outcome,because we were a nation united and regaurdless of who won the election the people rallied around the president elect.Becuase he was the President of the UNITED States.

Hellpig,
Actually, that is bullshit.

"Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the President MF any other public office save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country." -
Theodore Roosevelt


If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin." - Samuel Adams

"If patriotism is now defined as blind faith in executive authority, especially this executive authority, then we have lost far more than a war and a couple of towers" -Me

My Definition of Patriotism IN A TIME OF WAR is to stand behind the Administration.

On topics other than WAR I agree with Samuel Adams and Roosevelt and even you.

But we are at WAR and whether a person feels if is just or not.Has a duty to our troops dying everyday.Is to show support and not discourse.Did we not learn anything from NAM.

I shit you not if I ever see someone mocking a VET I will drop him where he stands.

SEMPER FI

"By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including my authority as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States, it is hereby ordered as follows:" -G. W. Bush

His authority apparently comes from the Constitution and the Rule of Law. Therefore he has no authority to act outside of the Constitution MF to be held above the Law which empowers him. Not the other way around. He does not make the Law. The Law makes him, even to the authority as Commander in Chief of the military. He cannot authorize anything outside of the Law. His job is to enforce the Law and Defend the Constitution.

"I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation MF purpose of evasion: and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me, God."

He has done neither.

"As usurpation is the exercise of power, which another hath a right to; so tyranny is the exercise of power beyond right, which nobody can have a right to." - John Locke, "Of Civil Government" 1689

But still you ask that we trust in the President?

"Let no more be said of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution." - Thomas Jefferson


And we follow blindly for what?

"Those who give up essential liberties for temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Benjamin Franklin

So do not tell me that I am a traitor because I question a man who has repeatedly lied, obstructed, and endeavored to pervert Justice and destroy Freedom. Treason is abandoning the American Ideals of Liberty out of fear for your worthless life.


I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty MF give me death." - Patrick Henry

YO Rev I see the Paranoia setting in....I never called you a traitor

Nice to see you quoting Republicans
maybe there's hope for you yet.LOL

"Henry is perhaps best known for the speech he made in the House of Burgesses on March 23, 1775, urging that legislature to take military action against the encroaching British military force. The House was deeply divided, but was very much leaning toward not committing troops. As Henry stood in Saint John's Church in Richmond, Virginia, he ended his speech with his most famous words;

Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"


Not nice to take quotes outta context shame on you

Reverend X said...

Yeah, that is how I meant it! To paraphrase the sentiment I usually just say "I'll gladly die on my feet before I live on my knees!"

Reverend X said...

Hellpig,

"YO Rev I see the Paranoia setting in....I never called you a traitor"

It is implied by the term "Treasonous Americans" in reference to people who question the President. Yeah, my paranoia has saved my life many times. Course, this will probably get me killed...

"My Definition of Patriotism IN A TIME OF WAR is to stand behind the Administration.

Therein lies the problem. That is one of the main reasons they started this Never Ending War. We, as a people, do rally behind the Flag. It is that fervor that they tapped into on 9-11. Didn't you ever notice how hallmark perfect most of the pictures were from that day? The fire consumed steel, black boxes, millions in gold, but not Old Glory... No that flag was right there amidst ruins. With only skeletal crosses standing up all around and escaping the total destruction. I recognized it , cuz I took behavior Mod (clinical psychology), too. I use imagery like a motherfucker when I make videos. The "stunned and shocked" photogragher snapping the official pics on 9-11 was coherent enough to bring props (the Flag), lights, and scope the whole place for the best possible images. And that was all intentionaly used to inspire the same faith that you have in the War President. Well, he started the War. If a killer kills so he can kill more, thou shalt not kill still works against him.

Hellpig said...

War President. Well, he started the War.

Now I am pretty sure he didnt fly any jets into the towers,and I am pretty sure that Congress allowed the war to take place and what were the #'s again

Hellpig,
No, Bush did very little on 9-11. He began the drive to War months before that.

The vote to authorizes force was not a Declaration of War. He has usurped far more than the Resolution granted.

Check this out.

Does that say what I think it says?

Does that say what I think it says?

Yeah it looks like it,If in fact it is the way you think it is,Do you believe that with all the turmoil surrounding BushCo that the American public is going to allow him to remain the Propheteering war monger.I hope and pray that the American public is smarter than that.

Bush actually goes against 2 of my 3 philosophies

1.BOARDERS
2.LANGUAGE
3.CULTURE

He has stripped away 1 & 3

which is why I wouldn't vote for him again.
