Things To Read

It's Time

I have come to the conclusion that it's no longer time to hide. It's time to choose and stand. We - I - have been too accepting and complacent for too long. No, you can't say that, it might hurt someone's feelings. All lives matter. Babies lives matter. No, you can't say that, it's a hate crime. Well, that's just tough. It's my opinion and I am just as entitled to it as the next person.

Quite some time back Frank and I told you we are no longer nice people. We aren't. We work very hard at being good, decent, honest people, but we are no longer nice. I find it quite refreshing to read about people actually standing up for themselves. Even though I don't agree with everything the current protestors are saying, I defend their right to say it. On the other hand the criminals that foment violence, looting, rioting, burning, destruction and mayhem? They need to be treated like the criminals they are.

Life will never return to the 'normal' that existed as we welcomed in the New Year on January 1, 2020. Never. Is this difficult? Absolutely. But because of the virus or the economy or the intolerance, events have brought us truly to a point of massive change, one way or another. Will 2020 be the year the silent majority is no longer silent, but now emerges with a roar? Will it be the year when we finally wake up and realize that enough is enough? Or will it be the year that we watch the final death throes of life as we knew it? Life that will become one big autonomous zone of freedom where you have to be searched, follow all rules, give up any means of self defense, submit all possessions for the good of all, and face violent, physical consequences to the point of death if you do not comply. Sounds like the summer of love, doesn't it? What do you choose? Regardless of what we choose, it is probably too late. Events have been set in motion by a well organized group that has been planning, training and implementing their destruction of our country from within. They are embedded deep within our governmental structure and have been for decades. Will the roar of the silent majority sound like more than a meow even if it is expressed at all? 

Have you ever read the book, Who Moved My Cheese? I would highly recommend it. Because not only has the cheese been moved, there is no cheese to be had anymore, I don't care how far you go or how long you look. It's gone. Never to be found again. So, now what?

If you have not already done so, please listen to Tucker Carlson, then we'll talk some more.

**Blogger has recently updated and done something weird with the font when creating an article. I don't know what and can't find a good size. One is too small, the other too big. Sorry about that.

We received this in an email recently. I don't know the author, but found it interesting reading.

I'm not posting this for debate. When you think the President is a jerk ...Just please consider this..,

The bottom line has been that Trump IS a jerk. He’s crude, he bloviates, he gets his feelings hurt and he’s a hot head. And he should stay off Twitter.

Let me tell you what else he is. He is a guy that demands performance. He is a guy that asks lots of questions. The questions he asks aren’t cloaked in fancy phrases, they are “why the hell....” questions.

For decades the health industry has thrown away billions of face masks after one use. Trump asks, “Why the hell are we throwing them away? Why not sterilize them and use them numerous times?” He’s the guy that gets hospital ships readied in one week, when it would have taken a bureaucrat weeks or months to get it done. He’s the guy that gets temporary hospitals built in three days. He’s the guy that gets industries to build ventilators and face masks in a business that’s highly regulated by agencies that move like sloths.

He’s the guy that asks why we aren’t using drugs that might work on people that are dying; what the hell do we have to lose? In spite of all the naysayers. He’s the guy that shut down travel from China, when the liberals and the media were screaming xenophobia and racist. Now they are asking why didn't he react sooner? He’s the guy that ran on securing the border in the face of a screaming press and media. When he shut down borders in the midst of the corona virus virus they were up in arms over such a draconian move. Then the rest of the world followed suit all over, including the European Union between member countries.

Has he made mistakes, yep. Everyone I know would have. All of these experts wouldn’t have done any better. Trump is working harder than I’ve ever seen a President work. He isn’t hiding in his office, he’s out front every day.

Take for instance, all the shortages of PPE’s and ventilators. I’m unaware of anything that prevented all of these governors from ordering all the PPE and ventilators for emergency purposes over the last two years. And yet, it is Trump’s fault that they didn’t.

He’s balanced his approach and listened to the experts, when his distracters said he wouldn’t and couldn’t. When he offers hope, "he’s lying" … and when he’s straight forward, "he should be hopeful". It’s a no-win, but he is not deterred by all of that BS coming from the press and the liberals.

I’ll take this kind of leadership over a nice guy that can make eloquent speeches but does nothing.

Biker logic … He is my President!

The world will never be the same as it was a few weeks and months ago. Employment opportunities have changed. The way schools function will never be the same. I attended a virtual meeting with the leadership team from the school district I continue to do contract work for. The plans they are having to put in place to deal with COVID-19 and the possible impacts it may have as school starts back in the fall are daunting. You can hear the stress in the way people try to cope with the new requirements, the concern they have for the children and the health of everyone. The stress of working adults will affect the children, which will affect the families, which will.......

Folks, it's time. Time to choose which side you're going to be on. Actively choose. If the rioters come to your town, your neighborhood, your door, what are you going to do? If you are not allowed to speak, work, shop, vote, etc. What are you going to do? There are some locations that are starting to reimpose restrictions because of the virus. It will be the death of the economy, the country and the world if there is another massive shutdown. Impossible.
I don't know if we will make it to the election. Even if we do, regardless of the outcome, regardless of who wins, I think there are those that are highly organized that are bound and determined to burn down the country and leave it in the ashes. Those that cry the loudest about oppression and the unfairness of it all, will be some of the most brutal dictators in history if they are allowed to gain the power to control our country and the world.

It's time to choose. When The Man comes around to your location, to collect your food, your guns, your fealty.....what are you going to do?

We as a people, our side if you want to call it that, has been accepting of too much for too long. When they decided it was okay to kill babies and it became law, even though we thought it was murder, we honored others right to choose. When they implemented searches in airports before boarding a plane "for our safety" we accepted it. Even when it grew to the point of groping genitals and strip searches. Even when they insisted on physically groping the elderly in wheelchairs and nuns. But not women in burkas, we can't have that now can we?

We accepted, we respected, the
rights of others. But what happens when you appease and appease and appease. What happens to a dog that has no structure, no boundaries, no limitations? It becomes more and more aggressive in it's demands to be fed, it's demands for freedom, to wantonly destroy or pursue anything that comes within it's realm. Then when that is not enough, it invades any territory it comes upon and makes it's demands known. You will do as I want or I will hurt you. I will kill you. How many times a year do we read about a dog mauling someone to death? An innocent person walking down the street. A child that came over to play.

When The Man comes around will you be ready? This song can be interpreted in a number of different ways. I choose not to lay down and go peacefully into the potter's field when The Man comes around. What will you do? Time is short. It's time to choose and be ready.

It's already a hot summer. Listen to Frank. He says it's going to be a very, very hot summer. Don't ever get on the bus.

Until next time - Fern


  1. Fern, you are spot on. We try to be nice. We try to see other points of view. We try to be tolerant of those we disagree with. But I gotta tell ya - I am done.

    There is nothing nice about burning and looting. There is no way I can understand the point of view that says they will continue to riot and destroy until they get their way. And I will not be tolerant the wanton destruction of our symbols of America. I just won't.

    Most of us just want to be left alone to peacefully live out our lives. But that is no longer allowed. We are now told when we can leave our homes, where we can go, if we can attend worship services, and where we can shop without wearing a mask. We find it is no longer safe to walk our streets or even drive our streets, for fear of attack by the lunatic mobs.

    It is my opinion that the only thing standing in the way of total anarchy is our President. And if his presidency ends in November, we are toast.

    1. Yep, burnt toast. What do we do without going to jail? The other side owns the courts, they own the schools. I don't want to spend the rest of my life behind bars.

      What do we do?


    2. Frank...I wish I were a wise person with answers. I am not. I can say vote out every opposition candidate possible, but the left is expert with cheating on elections. But vote anyway. I am too old to go about smacking idiots upside the head and too old to take a whooping any more. But my voice still works and I can and will use that voice as long as possible to point out the facts of what is happening to my beloved America. And when you think about it, at my age, a life sentence is not much of a deterrent. :)

    3. Frank, I'm sure the likes of our founding fathers didn't want what they got, but knew that if they didn't act, they'd be doing the future a disservice. I don't want to go to jail. I'd rather not die in a second revolution or civil war. However, if doing either will save this country for my children and theirs, then so be it. What's go to be done has got to be done...

  2. Truly a wake-up call. I just wish someone smarter than me could explain to me how we regain our country peacefully... It is depressing. As Frederick Douglass said in a "Self Made Man" when governments are violating our rights, we have "the ballot-box, the jury-box and the cartridge box" to make it right. The ballot box we are all familiar with, the jury-box, I did not think much about, even when I read that George Soros was throwing millions of $ into the District Attorneys races across the country... Why, I thought... Then we have the riots, the looting, the destruction of personal property, and tearing down of statues, etc. Next, the DA's drop all charges against those charged... There we go. Where we go next is anyone's guess. I don't know anyone that lives in a city, but if I did, "it's time to move".

    1. Ozark Redneck: I would take exception to your comment about the Jury Box. Too many of us shirk our Jury Duty. So far, I have not been called since I moved to Kootenai County, ID in 2015. However, I have studied Jury Nullification and it is a huge form of resistance to corrupt judges and prosecutors. The downside is when your are subject to voir dire as a juror, you have to be circumspect about your views, vis-a-vis judging the law as well as the facts of the case. If the Black-robed Druid/Druidess or the Prosecutor even suspects you advocate Jury Nullification, you're gone and you will never be called on again. It happened to me when I lived in The Peoples Democratic Socialist Republic of Oregon. As far as regaining Amerika peacefully, it cannot IMHO be done. Stay away from crowds. Keep prepping. Stay vigilant. Bleib ubrig. - DWEEZIL THE WEASEL.

  3. Frank, Vicki said " We are now told when we can leave our homes, where we can go, if we can attend worship services, and where we can shop without wearing a mask. We find it is no longer safe to walk our streets or even drive our streets, for fear of attack by the lunatic mobs."

    So the question is are you not already in jail, just one without bars? Although it perhaps is not the time to start shooting the bastards, it approaches. When it does, the judges won't matter. The cops won't matter. Nothing will matter except killing as many of them as you can before they load you into a boxcar..... or up against a wall. Your survival (or mine) does not matter. All that matters is stopping them. Back in the day, if flew helicopters for the Army. Every time I go in one to go on a mission, I thought I might not come back. I had to make peace with that or I could not have done the job well. You must make peace that fighting for freedom is not free....It can cost you your life. To win you must.

    1. We had a similar frame of mind when we were with law enforcement.

      We will never be loaded into a boxcar or on the truck. Never.

  4. It is truly a time to have your "line in the sand" figured out and how you are going to deal with things. Have those very uncomfortable discussions with those you love and trust.
    I think voting for anything above county offices is probably a waste of time, at least in our state of Washington it is .
    I see no peaceable solutions to the issues at hand in our country. The communist machine has been very successful in gaining control of things over the years. There is no place to hide, no safe haven, no privacy.
    I never thought our country would be brought down from the inside, but it is being done as we idly sit by . Our best days are long gone as we have become a nation of fools and whining sissies. Venezuela here we come.
    My God , I wish and pray that I would be wrong , but looking at the world around me I see nothing but utter turmoil and no easy way out .

  5. John Mosby, in his book 'Guerilla Gunfighter: Clandestine Carry Pistol' discusses deciding ahead of time what you are willing to go to jail for. If you use a gun in self defense, especially in certain jurisdictions and against a 'person of color' you are most likely going to jail. Where is the line? A punch in the face? Sexual assault of your wife and/or kids? Destruction or theft of your property? Each one of us has to decide where the line is, and harden our hearts to do what we need to, when we need to do it.

  6. When the other side demands we play nice and then does very bad things, it is time for lessons from the school yard to take place.
    I don't want this to get lost in the shuffle:

    In God's Safekeeping Red

  7. We must decide now:
    What would it take for me to spit in the face of Christ?

  8. Agree with everyone here, thanks for posting Fern.
    It does appear the fork in the road is at hand. If we all choose, and we are the silent majority, it should be easy.
    Sadly I do not think the other side will accept anything but their full and total delusional state...
    We've tried the ballot box, and the jury box is usurped by the judiciary.
    Praise God and pass the ammunition!

  9. There's an old book from about 25 years ago called "Unintended Consequences" about something sort of analogous to the current situation (except that things are probably worse now with the mob action). One of the big questions in the book was the main character wondering where to draw the line. If you wait until you're being herded to the edge of a pit by people with guns, you've waited too long. Soldiers (and probably most police) are told they should refuse unconstitutional orders, but how does that get operationalized?

    I'm actually a little surprised there hasn't been more pushback yet. Some agitators are probably trying to provoke it and hope it can be used to further their goals, but they will keep moving forward without it.
