It's Called "a Solution That Won't Work to a Problem That Doesn't Exist" Thing

Dear America,

fascinating thought is coming to the surface due to the massive overreach @ the FCC.

This whole "net neutrality" thing is anything but.

What has captured my attention -- the arguments against the new regulation in and of itself.

The arguments, the language --  the encapsulating of what is at stake and just what might be lost -- justify total restraint.  And in the natural process of things, circle back around to justify just why our Rule of Law in America, along with the government attached in its care, has been designed the way it was designed --  but even more important, why said government doesn't work anymore, let alone even exist.

From Ajit Pai:

[Net Neutrality] "a solution that won't work to a problem that doesn't exist," 

Don't think you're special over there at the FCC, Ajit --  it's just the left-wing, hair-brained approach for everything under the sun; it just so happens to be the everyday run of the mill oppression meeting up with twenty first century ignorance.  It's just occurring in the light of day, instead of its usual cover of night.

No. Wait.  It is happening in the cover of night...

Let's go to an outfit called "Electronic Frontier Foundation"  -  a place all about "defending your rights in the digital world."

They say:

"Our message has been clear from the beginning: the FCC has a role to play, but its role must be firmly bounded."  [ooooh, kinda like good government]

Needless to say,  they are now digitally reconciling big doubts along with a mother-load of good intentions.

They go on with their lament --

Two weeks ago, we learned that we had likely managed the first goal—the FCC is going to do the right thing and reclassify broadband as a telecommunications service, giving it the ability to make new, meaningful Open Internet rules.  But we are deeply concerned that the FCC’s new rules will include a provision that sounds like a recipe for overreach and confusion: the so-called “general conduct rule.”


it's taken you guys this long to connect the dots?

As crazy as this idea may sound, you should get together with Ajit.....

What we are experiencing now is called technical difficulties.  And it's complicated.

No.  Not really.
It's called "a solution that won't work to a problem that doesn't exist,"
Or, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

In other words, it's just how progressives make progress reaching their overreach goals.

Welcome to the other side, EFF; welcome to the party of less government is more.  Take a number.  Your input and help is greatly appreciated.

And finally --
apparently, the FCC Commissioner Tom Wheeler isn't even going to discuss it anymore.  He simply refuses to discuss the ruse before Congress on principle, being the principal decision maker for the FCC and the principles it keeps.  

Compromising on our principles is just what we do (now).

The vote is Thursday.


Make it a Good Day, G

PS.  ALL of my links today -- if not many days -- come courtesy of the Drudge Report.com !  You link, post, mock, revel,  in and around the world wide web everyday, Matt, and this girl loves you!   You make it so easy to link my thing with your thing and make something pure -- venturing to record and keep a diary of America by telling the Truth!   Thank you and God Bless you.

It's an Enigma that Keeps on Giving Thing

Dear America,

“The momentum that ISIL built up during the summer has dissipated. It continues, yes, to commit terrible crimes," said Kerry. "But it has also been forced to relinquish bases, abandon training sites, alter its mode of communications, disperse personnel, and stop the use of large convoys.”
quoting John Kerry...last November.

He went on to say, not to worry....

“Where once there was suspicion and discord, we now see the Saudi foreign minister link arms with Iraq’s Kurdish and Shia leaders. We see the government of Turkey agree to allow Kurdish fighters to cross its border and take on ISIL. We see the multi-confessional leadership of Lebanon jointly resisting armed incursions into their territory.”

...the region is working together to fight back.

Oh Really?

This is "momentum dissipated?"

This is working together?

From the Daily Beast, under a column named "Frenemies,"  Nancy Youssef highlights the current impasse between  the United States and Egypt; it comes on the heels of Egyptian airstrikes against ISIL after the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians on the shores of Libya.

Let's be a little more clear, shall we...

"We are neither condemning nor condoning” the Egyptian strikes, is all one U.S. official would tell The Daily Beast.

In other words, these once-close nations are now fighting separate campaigns against their mutual foe. And that could prove to be very good news for ISIS. The rift between U.S. and the region’s most populous country portends of another division that ISIS could exploit, this time for its expansion into northern Africa and the broader Middle East.

It's an enigma that keeps on giving.

And then, 45 Iraqi's -- some believed to be part of the security forces and their families -- were captured by ISIL and burned to death.

Thank goodness we telegraphed our immediate plans to take over Mosul -- and before the end of May, as, after that, it just becomes way too hot, and of course, there's Ramadan.

As ISIL responds to that,  almost immediately -- oh, so you wanna piece of me? -- bite me.

hmmmm wonder what they are going to do with nearly 90 Syrian Christians?

Yes, indeed, Secretary of State John Kerry -- I see it --  ISIL's momentum has totally dissipated.  
And whatever we are doing, we must be doing it right, as things have totally shifted in favor of freedom and liberty all the way.
[Just taking a break there with some bona fide sarcasm.]

hmmm wonder what the president is going to say about this new news?

I mean, the news of 90 Christians being abducted came from Al Jazeera; no doubt the president respects that news organization.  [Oh, and for great fun -- go back up to "bite me" and scroll down to the comments section.  woo hoo!]

Oh my.
G is feeling a wee bit punchy today...

bubble baths, 
 and I still want to smack somebody!"

With much thanks and appreciation
for this little gem 
going to
Gartner Greetings, Inc.

Encapsulating a feeling in a nano-second, the humble greeting card.  Brilliant.

It's just too bad we can't just send ISIL a greeting card saying something that will mend the broken fences -- the relationship --  right?  

I don't know -- a heartfelt apology perhaps...our condolences for their losses...maybe something more like a pleading, begging,  something to the effect of "crying Uncle" en masse,... please, please, make it stop...we can talk this out...grasping for just the right words to say....saying almost anything, promising to be better next time like a battered woman.

yeah, yeah

Fascinating isn't it?

If I believed in "jinxes" -- I would have to admit we jinxed ourselves the very day we gave this president of ours the Nobel Prize as the world's peacemaker. [considering it was merely two weeks into his administration when he was nominated...seriously?...]

Today --nearly every facet of peace working wondrously within society  -- foreign and domestic  -- is asunder. 

Marked by:

  • brand new divides in race relations, 
  • immigration policy in chaos and lack of security at the American borders, 
  • the actions or inaction(s) in the Middle East -- whether between allies or enemies, 
  • the upending of the finest health care system in the world, 
  • the divide between the have's and the have not's, tearing apart the free-flow of free-enterprise and thwarting efforts to create wealth and security for all 
  • the ongoing battle for truth and transparency centering around the many scandals under this administration,  
  • the culture, religion, and traditions in America coming under attack under the guise of social justice
-- just so many things at the center of complete unrest in America.

Cue the double entendre:   It's a wonder any of us can sleep.

Make it a Good Day, G

indeed, G, too many of us are asleep. 

point well taken.

thank you.

But for those of you with difficulty in the shut-eye department, you might want to try gardening, yoga, bubble baths, medication...

It's a Guts and Glory with Gusto is a Good Thing

Dear America,

 you know that New York Post cover...
just a couple of days ago...
showing the President with a blindfold over his eyes,
poking fun at his inability to see the truth about Islamic Terror...this one....

"I just don't see it,"  it says in the caption.

We might as well have a NY Post cover made for every democrat, left-winged liberal, progressive -- whether a Senator, or Representative, or Governor, or Head of the DNC (Debbie Wasserman Schultz)  -- whether black or white -- whether man or woman --- the cover covers everyone and anyone who continues to stand behind this president with no doubt of his allegiance to America;  and the caption would read the same... "I just don't see it."

They just don't see it because they don't want to see it.

Barack Obama -- in his campaign(s) leading up to the presidency, in his actions as president, and no doubt, in his continued efforts in retirement to use his position of influence even further in hopes of fulfilling his father's dreams of  RE-organizing America  -- shows us a man (just a man...tirelessly clinging to ambitions larger than life, even larger than his own ego) in utter contempt of America's history every day.

This contempt runs deep -- having grown and been shaped and earnestly persuaded of a certain ideology throughout his childhood and young adulthood from multiple fronts:  his natural born father of Kenya, who he hardly knew really -- and the many influences of  Marxist, Communist, Socialist mentors and associations  (including his grandparents who raised him, his own mother's alliances, his pastor and mentor of 20 years, according to Obama himself -- Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Frank Marshall Davis , Rezko, Ayers, Khalidi, Rev. Pfleger...and Saul!  Who can forget Saul Alinsky!  Rules for Radicals lovers unite!  Hillary....you, too....stand up...don't be shy).

And for the most part -- his childhood (the most impressionable years of a person's growth) was not on the mainland of America, but Hawaii or Indonesia.  This is a huge detail, not to be dismissed as just G being crazy.   (For more back story:  READ THIS well researched post @American Thinker...dated October 30, 2008)

The background on Barack was all over the place before he was elected.

But the mainstream media was silent; the MSM -- refusing to vet the man fully and to this day, highly culpable to the fraud -- was just so love-struck, they might as well be on a cover, all of them, with blindfolds, with a caption "I just don't see it" written in red and smeared across the bottom of the page.  I mean, my gosh, given the rise of the first "articulate ...and clean" African-American (am I right, Joe?)...what's not to love?  It  was like getting a thrill all up and down the leg, huh, Chris Matthews?

America was ripe for the taking.

We fell hard.


Even many of us on the right couldn't help but be excited of the thought of it.  It was contagious and bellowing up from our core, his approval appeared nearly unanimous.   America inhaled and now high on the loftiest of dreams, and ideals...... it was as if everyone's idea of an American president were being answered all at once.  boom.

We wanted Barack Obama to be The One, hence the pillars and surround sound following him wherever he went.

The media chose to sweep whatever suspect influences and alliances by association under the proverbial rug because it was time, it was worth it -- he was just what America needed.  And to be sure -- this African-American man who could speak (unbeknownst to us at the time, only by teleprompter) was going to fix race relations for the better, to be the end all of a long and brutal American history within the black community. With great hopes, we believed Obama was the fix for good.

I mean, honestly, people --  the American mainstream media -- can they really be trusted?  Really?  Brian Williams.  

Now, thanks to people like Sharyl Attkisson -- we now know how transparent things really are under this administration and the lengths they will go to control the information and more important, control the media and their talking points.  Desperate times call for socialist measures.

But now we've taken a far left turn.......

What the hell do you think "WE ARE FIVE DAYS AWAY FROM FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION" truly means?    How many times have I had to embed that little youtube show of bravado?  Not doing it today. Just not going there.  If you want to hear it again, look it up yourself.

And what the hell...let's go here, too - - Michelle has made no apologies for saying this during the first campaign:

What, like change everything, Michelle, my belle?
Including  "change our traditions, our history?"

[And just gotta love that she's in Puerto Rico talking smack against America]

And just how do you alter a history?   Wow.  To promise to change American history as a campaign promise -- that's good.

[It's funny, isn't it?  It's not like Obama can change HIS history...IF Obama had a different history, perhaps more embed-ed with all things Americana, we would be able to find it.   But it's not there, is it.   And more important, he can't change it unless by means of deception.]

But let's keep going --
And to change our traditions, Michelle?

What the fucking hell?

Barack and Michelle are united in marriage and in their contempt for this country.  Otherwise, why would they feel a need to change our history (however absurd that sounds)  and our traditions with aplomb.

They both, in tandem and decidedly, hate what America stands for in every possible way.

I mean, come on --  Michelle was never proud of her country until hope springs eternal during the Obama campaign!   Seriously?

Now of course, with every new presidency,  and with each new administration, an air of confidence to bring forth a certain level of influence, leaving an imprint upon America, is a lofty and spirited and patriotic ambition.   I would assume, anyway.

Generally speaking, becoming president of the United States, and by default, leader of the free world, history begs for a contribution.  No doubt about it.

However, I'm pretty sure the joy of such a responsibility, chock full of umpteen possibilities, doesn't begin with a grudge -- a chip  -- a despise beyond intelligent reason -- and essentially, an inbred ignorance of how America got here in the first place.  

The secrets of America's success leading to the founding of an exceptional nation, under God, and within the guidelines of a limited government, trusting of a system of checks and balances to keep the power of an overzealous government in check -- is of no interest to Him.

Obama grew up believing in community organizing to bring about change and government syncing with the community to bring about a radicalized  new America.  Little by little, nudge by nudge, systematically regulating the culture, business, schools, immigration, healthcare,  bureaucracy, media, a fundamental transformation of America within two terms becomes almost second nature over time -- and when he gets to his last two years -- when there are no campaigns left, right, Barack?  -- it's time to bring out a new tack....and it's something I like to call going for broke.

Which is what we are witnessing now.

This president is shunning Bibi Netanyahu and Israel while negotiating with Iran.  [um ah-hem... we are up against a deadline, March 24th]

This president is slamming Christianity while sheltering Muslims; and don't even get me started of how he can't even utter the truth about Islamic fundamentalists...President Barack "I just don't see it" Obama.   Making a connection between the deaths in the Middle East at the hands of radical Islamists because, you know, the Crusaders did the same thing...are you kidding me?

I mean, who can be surprised given how this presidency began -- running around like a chicken with his head cut off, apologizing to the Muslim world about America.

This president called the thirteen deaths at Fort Hood "workplace violence" for goodness sake.

This president ---  because he can't figure out how to close Gitmo, he is just releasing prisoners... just a few at a time....not to worry.

This president unilaterally changed immigration law, without a mandate and without congressional approval...And now, under this president, we are accepting refugees from Syria into America by the thousands.  Security?  Anyone?

This president fraudulently created another entitlement -- Obamacare -- lying to the American people about what it is, how it works, and ultimately upending one-sixth of this nation's economy.  This president created a burden so great, by design, it will lead to either Socialist medicine and a single-payer system for all OR it  will be the last straw....you know the one... the one that breaks America's back.  (And just look how it's burdening the federal bureaucracy already..).

This president is hellbent on destroying free enterprise, our cornerstone of wealth creation -- advocating for such things as a $15 dollar minimum wage!  ....recommended by a bureaucrat with no business experience.

This president claimed he was a big believer in "all of the above" energy policy -- but doesn't believe in the Keystone project?  Hammers out reckless regulations to the coal industry?   Nearly stops drilling for oil on federal property?  Liar, liar, pants on fire.

This president wants to take over the INTERNET!  Controlling commerce and free speech just for the politics.

I have to stop.

This president doesn't really love America the way America is intended to be.   He wants to.  He really wants to.  At least, he wants you to believe he wants to, anyway.   But truth is, that would be going against the anti-Colonialism -- and everything for which she stands -- fight running mighty strong and iron rich in his bloodstream.

He loves what he can do for America.

If he had his way, this president would have preferred to have been given a clean slate altogether -- to reorganize, remodel, and fundamentally remake America from her roots.

I don't know.

Of course, maybe you just don't see it.
There is that.

He is  smart, you know; and articulate...oooh weee, yes he is....and  highly educated......oooh wee, yes we can ........and clean......and how great is it that he is an African-American....finally.    And this guy knows what we, the people, need before we even know we need it.  It's truly amazing.

Perhaps, with any luck, the natural laws of oppression will catch up to us once again.

oh....almost forgot to say, go G, as in Guiliani.  Guts and Glory with Gusto is a Good Thing for America.

Make it a Good Day, G

It's Just G Quibbling Over Details -- it's What I Do -- Thing

Dear America,

happy lunar new year.

it's the Year of the Sheep...or is it more correct to call it 'the goat'....or my personal favorite, 'the ram'...ah, but this quibbling over terminology is pointless, just an obsession of Fox News,  right Eric Holder? He says it doesn't change how we deal with it...Radical Islam.

While true, due to constraints of the English language, the Mandarin takes on multiple personalities in translation here in America, and in the West.   And yet, all the while, the Far East has absolutely no issue understanding and recognizing the whole of the character, and more than that, celebrating it.    

From the New York Times just yesterday:

Zhao Shu, a folklore expert at the Beijing Institute of Culture and History, said in a telephone interview that the debate was silly. The creature in question arose as a general symbol of plenitude and good fortune, partly because the Chinese character yang shares roots with the one for auspiciousness, he said. 
“This is ridiculous,” he said. “Goat and sheep are different in French and English, but what’s that got to do with Chinese traditional culture? 
He also drew a lesson about the virtues of Chinese tradition. “In Western culture, things are subdivided into more and more detailed categories, and that’s why Europe has still not been unified after so many years,” he continued. “If you want to say whether it’s goat or sheep, then why not also ask whether it’s a ewe or a ram? But Chinese culture has an inclusive spirit and stresses harmony.”

And how.  I love that part when Zhao Shu notes how "[I]n Western culture, things are subdivided into more and more detailed categories..."   [We didn't start out this way...creating a land of subdivision; our birthright and origins were intended to assimilate into one culture, all of us being called the same thing... AMERICANS]

 Well, back to the Year of the Sheep-Goat-Ram-Ewe --  no sense quibbling over what a thousand year culture calls it, right; getting back to this day -- 

"Confucius always say, 
befuddlement make good party 
but bad foreign policy."


From Fox News, Sean Hannity Show:

"The first thing you must do when confronting an enemy is to label it and call it for what it is.  That is the foundation for your understanding of its motivations and therefore the basis for your reaction to it."

And yet -- this is our Commander-In-Chief, making a few remarks at the  "Shovel Ready Jobs For Violent Extremists Summit" yesterday:

By “violent extremism,” we don’t just mean the terrorists who are killing innocent people.  We also mean the ideologies, the infrastructure of extremists --the propagandists, the recruiters, the funders who radicalize and recruit or incite people to violence.  We all know there is no one profile of a violent extremist or terrorist, so there’s no way to predict who will become radicalized.  Around the world, and here in the United States, inexcusable acts of violence have been committed against people of different faiths, by people of different faiths -- which is, of course, a betrayal of all our faiths.  It's not unique to one group, or to one geography, or one period of time. 
go on...

First, we have to confront squarely and honestly the twisted ideologies that these terrorist groups use to incite people to violence.  Leading up to this summit, there’s been a fair amount of debate in the press and among pundits about the words we use to describe and frame this challenge.  So I want to be very clear about how I see it. 
and yet painstakingly, and purposefully, idealistically ambivalent you remain to claim.
Al Qaeda and ISIL and groups like it are desperate for legitimacy.  They try to portray themselves as religious leaders -- holy warriors in defense of Islam.  That’s why ISIL presumes to declare itself the “Islamic State.”  And they propagate the notion that America -- and the West, generally -- is at war with Islam.  That’s how they recruit.  That’s how they try to radicalize young people.  We must never accept the premise that they put forward, because it is a lie.  Nor should we grant these terrorists the religious legitimacy that they seek.  They are not religious leaders -- they’re terrorists.  (Applause.)  And we are not at war with Islam.  We are at war with people who have perverted Islam.  (Applause.) 

and yet, here we are -- up against an army of  wealthy, determined, righteous, unafraid, ISLAMIC Extremists who tell us THEY ARE AT WAR WITH US, the infidels, those who choose not to follow Allah and the Quran.

And going even further, our president gives consideration to the understandable grievances within the Muslim community --

The reality -- which, again, many Muslim leaders have spoken to -- is that there’s a strain of thought that doesn’t embrace ISIL’s tactics, doesn’t embrace violence, but does buy into the notion that the Muslim world has suffered historical grievances  -- sometimes that's accurate -- does buy into the belief that so many of the ills in the Middle East flow from a history of colonialism or conspiracy; does buy into the idea that Islam is incompatible with modernity or tolerance, or that it's been polluted by Western values.
oh, okay.

So those beliefs exist.  In some communities around the world they are widespread.  And so it makes individuals -- especially young people who already may be disaffected or alienated -- more ripe for radicalization.  And so we've got to be able to talk honestly about those issues.  We've got to be much more clear about how we're rejecting certain ideas.

Which, in turn, is why he supports the comments coming from his very own State Department -- Marie Harf -- having, most likely, put the words in her mouth to begin with...

In an interview with Chris Matthews, Harf says:

We're killing a lot of them, and we're going to keep killing more of them. ... But we cannot win this war by killing them," department spokeswoman Marie Harf said on MSNBC's "Hardball." "We need ... to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it's lack of opportunity for jobs, whether --
... "If we can help countries work at the root causes of this -- what makes these 17-year-old kids pick up an AK-47 instead of trying to start a business?" 

The "ROOT CAUSES" ... Marie, and with all due respect,  Mr. President,... was written into the Quran.  And it is quite clear.

While putting it another way...

Rob O'Neill, the former Navy Seal Team 6 who actually shot Osama Bin Laden, responded to the jobs idea with this:  "They get paid to cut off heads -- to crucify children, to sell slaves and to cut off heads and I don't think that a change in career path is what's going to stop them," he said.

Of course,  maybe this "jobs-for-extremists" idea is just way too nuanced for this girl to comprehend.

NOT.  [Feel free to read translations of  the Quran, here]

Let's go back to the president's remarks, doubling down on bringing a better opportunity to the poor, disenfranchised youth of the Middle East:

Conversely, there are terrorists who’ve come from extraordinarily wealthy backgrounds, like Osama bin Laden.  What’s true, though, is that when millions of people -- especially youth -- are impoverished and have no hope for the future, when corruption inflicts daily humiliations on people, when there are no outlets by which people can express their concerns, resentments fester.  The risk of instability and extremism grow.  Where young people have no education, they are more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and radical ideas, because it's not tested against anything else, they’ve got nothing to weigh.  And we've seen this across the Middle East and North Africa. 
And terrorist groups are all too happy to step into a void. They offer salaries to their foot soldiers so they can support their families.  Sometimes they offer social services -- schools, health clinics -- to do what local governments cannot or will not do.  They try to justify their violence in the name of fighting the injustice of corruption that steals from the people -- even while those terrorist groups end up committing even worse abuses, like kidnapping and human trafficking.  
So if we’re going to prevent people from being susceptible to the false promises of extremism, then the international community has to offer something better.  And the United States intends to do its part...

And so I guess, to that end,  starting today, we will be accepting applications from Syrian Refugees of all backgrounds, indiscriminate... simply trusting all who beg to come to America's shores for a better life, and especially to find better jobs,  "The United States intends to do its part..."

The idea isn't really all that new.

It would only be fair to observe that  "The United States has admitted 524 Syrians since 2011. We’re likely to admit 1,000 to 2,000 Syrian refugees for permanent resettlement in Fiscal Year 2015 and a somewhat higher number, though still in the low thousands, in Fiscal Year 2016," spokeswoman Jen Psaki [of the State Department] told reporters on Friday.

September 2014.

December 2014.

From Anne Richards, in a Department of State press release, December 2014:

But war’s true cost is measured in human suffering. Resettlement can help – one person at a time – to bring that suffering to an end. 
We applaud the 25 countries that have agreed to resettle Syrian refugees, including some who will be accepting UNHCR refugee referrals for the first time. The United States accepts the majority of all UNHCR referrals from around the world. Last year, we reached our goal of resettling nearly 70,000 refugees from nearly 70 countries. And we plan to lead in resettling Syrians as well. We are reviewing some 9,000 recent UNHCR referrals from Syria. We are receiving roughly a thousand new ones each month, and we expect admissions from Syria to surge in 2015 and beyond. 
Like most other refugees resettled in the United States, they will get help from the International Organization for Migration with medical exams and transportation to the United States. Once they arrive, networks of resettlement agencies, charities, churches, civic organizations and local volunteers will welcome them. These groups work in 180 communities across the country and make sure refugees have homes, furniture, clothes, English classes, job training, health care and help enrolling their children in school. They are now preparing key contacts in American communities to welcome Syrians.
This should all work out just fine; just as long as you all let the ladies of the Welcome Wagon know ahead of time so that they can meet the demands and be better prepared to make every refugee's transition easy breezy...

And while we're getting all characters united now, let's wrap things up with a story from the president,  In his winding down of his remarks, he shares this little beauty:

I’m thinking of a little girl named Sabrina who last month sent me a Valentine’s Day card in the shape of a heart.  It was the first Valentine I got.  (Laughter.)  I got it from Sabrina before Malia and Sasha and Michelle gave me one.  (Laughter.)  So she’s 11 years old.  She’s in the 5th grade.  She’s a young Muslim American.  And she said in her Valentine, “I enjoy being an American.”  And when she grows up, she wants to be an engineer -- or a basketball player.  (Laughter.)  Which are good choices. (Laughter.)  But she wrote, “I am worried about people hating Muslims…If some Muslims do bad things, that doesn’t mean all of them do.”  And she asked, “Please tell everyone that we are good people and we’re just like everyone else.”  (Applause.)  Now, those are the words -- and the wisdom -- of a little girl growing up here in America, just like my daughters are growing up here in America.  “We’re just like everybody else.”  And everybody needs to remember that during the course of this debate. 

And there it is.
The character of mass confusion explained; and by a 5th grader, no less.

 "If some Muslims do bad things, that doesn’t mean all of them do," she said.

Exactly.  Sabrina is not afraid.
Even a 5th grader calls a Muslim a Muslim.   She links her religion, Islam, to the violent acts ( the "bad things") without a second thought, even with the knowing that some, most, Muslims are, in fact, "good people."    How brave is she?  [I would just love to know her thoughts on the Year of the Sheep...but I digress.]

But allow me to respond, Sabrina -- we know.

The Good Muslims are NOT of issue at this time.

What is of issue is understanding how to beat "these big bad Muslims" so that the Middle East, if not the entire world, might make more love, not war.  It's kinda like beating back the big bad wolf in Red Riding Hood [of course, no denying the small, annoying detail of the original story...the wolf actually eats the little girl up and takes a nap!...oh snap!]

What is of issue is calling it by name and knowing our enemy.  Our president seems to be vewy, vewy afraid of calling it what it is.

What is of issue  -- as grating and extreme as it may sound -- is combating the violent, discriminating hatred resulting in death to the infidels at the hands of the Islamic Extremists who are acting upon Islamic doctrine at its very roots, with its goal creating the Caliphate by Jihad in order to support the true law of the land, Sharia,  as spoken through Mohammed and as written in the Quran.

And no, Sabrina, it's not all Muslims doing bad things.

ISIS, ISIL, potayto, potahto, al-Queda, Hamas, Hezbollah --

They are not a sheep.

They are not a goat.

They are not Christian.

They are not Jewish.

They are not Buddhist.

They are not a butterfly.

They are not a flea.

And they are neither  the JV team, nor in retreat.

[But they might just be related to the ewe...just sayin']

But just look who's quibbling over nonsense now.

They are what they are.   
And it is not good.

Make it a Good Day, G

It's About Being Masters of Duplicity, the Whole Kit and Caboodle, Thing

Dear America,

here's a little reminder, people...

America was AND is designed to allow all religions to live together in peace...
and with such a mandate, dating back a couple hundred of years, America was truly unique.  Some might even say, exceptional.

That is until living freely and openly Under God became a lightning rod for hate -- coming under attack by progressives tearing down our traditions and holidays almost on a daily basis, along with Atheists and other Freedom From Religion enthusiasts making it their mission to take any belief, and all evidence thereof, of God down.........and not like a lamb, but with a vengeance. [It's weird, really, as nondescript as "God" Itself truly Is -- but where it should not matter the packaging, the exercising, or the label attached...the consensus seems sharply focused upon attacking Christianity.  Can I get a witness?]

America was AND is designed to have personal freedom in the FREE EXERCISE of our religion AND in our FREE EXERCISE of no religion...that is until said free exercise (whether we agree with it or not) suddenly costs 150K.

America was AND is designed with a government respective of a Natural Law in place -- with a knowing that SOMETHING GREATER than humanity endows each member of our society UNALIENABLE RIGHTS with NO man, and more specifically, no GOVERNMENT made up of men, truly needed in order to give us, we the people, said rights.  [And men simply being, humanity...]

America just isn't like some places around the world at all.

Take for example, the Middle East, the whole kit and caboodle.  (Did you like that?   You know, the more you know, the more you learn you don't know...and sometimes the origins of things matter -- just as in other times,  it doesn't make a hill of beans difference  (boom).   Am I right, Mrs. Hillary "what difference at this point does it make" Clinton?)

oh my goodness, all this digression is gonna kill my point today.

So over the weekend, in a part of the world where multiple religions cannot live freely and openly with one another -- the Middle East -- we received word of another beheading.  No. Wait.  Not just one beheading, because then I might be able to reconcile a day of golf immediately thereafter -- but 21 be-headings.  Twenty One!   The antithesis of the 21 gun salute in every way, twenty-one Egyptian Coptic Christian men were beheaded on a beach in Libya.

Let's see why --  cue Breitbart:

"A Message Signed with Blood to the Nation of the Cross"  is the title of the video...

"Oh people, recently you have seen us on the hills of Al-Sham and Dabiq’s plain, chopping off the heads that have been carrying the cross for a long time, and today, we are on the south of Rome, on the land of Islam, Libya, sending another message. 
All crusaders: safety for you will be only wishes especially if you are fighting us all together. Therefore we will fight you all together. The sea you have hidden Sheikh Osama bin Laden’s body in, we swear to Allah we will mix it with your blood."
so that is pretty clear,

the land of Islam is fighting against the "Nation of the Cross" -- which is all of Christianity, no matter Rome, Italy or Rome, New York,  or Rome, Georgia.   [and what am I thinking -- let's give a free enterprise nod to Olive Garden's latest advertising campaign planting that seed.]

"All crusaders...The sea you have hidden Sheikh Osama bin Laden’s body in, we swear to Allah we will mix it with your blood."
Taking a cue from President Obama's speech at the National Prayer Breakfast a couple weeks ago, these Violent Islamic Extremists believe nothing's changed from the Middle Ages, talking the Crusades and all.  So thank you, Mr. President; our president handed them a new narrative --- not that any of them in the caboodle needed one.

And what up -- using the burial place in the death of Osama Bin Laden as another talking point? That certainly takes us back to the punting-football moment of "GM is alive and Bin Laden is dead", huh Joe.

And what up --  Libya?  Of all places for this caboodle of masked Islamic Caliphate marauders to land...

If anyone is keeping track, nearly everything this administration has done to"bring peace and civility" to the Middle East has blown up in their faces.  Or is that OUR faces -- as in, all of our faces, as in they, the "ISIL-affiliated terrorists," will fight us all together, as in all of us?

And just how did our administration respond to the be-headings?

“The United States condemns the despicable and cowardly murder of twenty-one Egyptian citizens in Libya by ISIL-affiliated terrorists,” it said. “We offer our condolences to the families of the victims and our support to the Egyptian government and people as they grieve for their fellow citizens. ISIL’s barbarity knows no bounds. It is unconstrained by faith, sect, or ethnicity.”
[But it IS CONSTRAINED by faith, sect, and ethnicity!!!!!   FOR THEY TELL US SO!!!!!!]

Oh but here's another thing -- it wasn't even spoken out of  the mouth of our president (because he went golfing!!!!!!).   The world comes to a standstill with the shock and horror of twenty-one Christian Coptic Egyptians being beheaded on a beach in Libya and our president cannot sit still for one day out of respect?  Seriously?  [Of course this girl is not surprised; he didn't join the world's leaders in solidarity in Paris either...]

Here's a thought:  Can you just imagine how the president would react if Christians beheaded 21 Muslims on a beach in San Diego? 

But wait.  There's more.

TO combat all of this stuff that we seem to not know about the kit and caboodle of characters, be it ISIS, al-Qaeda, Hamas, and lone-wolf terrorists of all shapes and sizes but same bat channel of religious association AND all of its affiliates:  the Nation of Islam...

we get a summit.
Because talking about it is much easier than doing something about it.

V.P. Joe Biden is expected to open the summit.

Wonder what he will begin with....perhaps we can expect something equally provocative and catchy as reminding the nation of Islam we killed their leader.  And with aplomb.

Rest assured, there will be many discussions -- MANY --  on the whole kit and caboodle that is  considered acts of extremism and terrorism and all things threatening in America and the entire world in which we live.  It will ALL be DISCUSSED.


It was just a week ago -- only a few days before the be-headings of 21 Coptic Christian Egyptians on a beach in Libya, a place of  Islamic Implosion since the day we bombed it without any long-term plan of sustainability in place -- our president made this announcement:

Make no mistake — this is a difficult mission and it will remain difficult for some time. It’s going to take time to dislodge these terrorists, especially from urban areas. But our coalition is on the offensive. ISIL is on the defensive, and ISIL is going to lose,” Mr. Obama said in a brief address. “Our coalition is strong, our cause is just and our mission will succeed. And long after the terrorists we face today are destroyed and forgotten, America will continue to stand free and tall and strong.  (The Washington Times)


They -- the "ISIL-affiliated terrorists"  -- came right back "on the defensive" and beheaded 21 Christians for no other reason than they be Christian  -- does it really matter where they came?

yeah, America is not like that.
America was AND is designed to be different...
exceptional, if you will.
The exception to the way of the world around us
was governed, back in the day;
and remains to this day
the divine design of
the ORIGINS of our 


The Washington Times continues, noting:

The authorization prohibits “enduring offensive ground combat operations,” but there is confusion about exactly what that term means. Mr. Obama stressed that he won’t commit the U.S. to another all-out ground war but made clear that he will use special operations forces to target Islamic State leaders when necessary. 
“If we had actionable intelligence about a gathering of ISIL leaders and our partners didn’t have the capacity to get them, I would be prepared to order our special forces to take action,” he said.
that's what summits are for -- and then applying the "actionable intelligence"  using any means necessary...It’s going to take time to dislodge these terrorists, especially from urban areas. 

[that's funny...'especially from urban areas'...what? did our president really just say that?]

and Our coalition is strong, our cause is just and our mission will succeed. And long after the terrorists we face today are destroyed and forgotten, America will continue to stand free and tall and strong. 

yeah. yeah,  they will just go away.

Because our mission is stronger than their mission, our cause is more just than their cause??

But what does history tell us...

The United States and Islam have a history...

From a piece plucked from WND.com, Bill Federer explains:

When Jefferson asked the Muslim ambassador what the new country of America had done to offend them, he reported to John Jay, March 28, 1786: “The Ambassador answered us that it was … written in their Qur’an, that all nations who should not have acknowledged Islam’s authority were sinners, that it was their … duty to make war upon them … and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners.”

President Jefferson's response -- he sent in the bloody Navy and the Marines, a.k.a. America's whole kit and caboodle, saying:

[In his First Annual Message, Dec. 8, 1801, Thomas Jefferson stated:] 
“Tripoli … of the Barbary States, had come forward with demands unfounded either in right or in compact, and had permitted itself to (announce) war on our failure to comply before a given day. The style of the demand admitted but one answer. I sent a small squadron of frigates into the Mediterranean, with assurances to that power of our sincere desire to remain in peace, but with orders to protect our commerce against the threatened attack. ”

As Federer continues to explain --

 The Navy and Marines later captured Tripoli and forced the Pasha to make peace on U.S. terms.
Frederick Leiner wrote in “The End of the Barbary Terror – America’s 1815 War Against the Pirates of North Africa” (Oxford University Press): “Commodore Stephen Decatur and diplomat William Shaler withdrew to consult in private. … The Algerians were believed to be masters of duplicity, willing to make agreements and break them as they found convenient.”

[And for more about this time in history, go to The Thomas Jefferson Papers, here]

"Masters of Duplicity"

kinda reminding me of a certain Commander-In-Chief.  just sayin'

Me thinks the whole kit and caboodle under God here is in for a rude awakening once history is documented for all the world to see. (That is, if we survive and live in a land with the freedom to tell the story still).

 Long after this president is gone -- after he finds himself upon the greens in Palm Desert with no reason not to... day after day after day -- we will all come to know the truth about what is truly happening here.

And the hindsight will not be kind; for President Obama's true caboodle is not here, but over there.

He will retire from office and realize what he's always known -- he will "convert" to Islam and come out of the closet a Muslim. [Working in the same pattern as his "evolution" on traditional marriage...   He lives a lie until he can safely come out with the truth.  It's just about the optics, of politics, you know....and everyone will applaud his bravery, no doubt.]  go ahead and laugh...what ever.  Mark my words, you heard it here first. 

Thing is -- the whole kit and caboodle always comes out eventually.

Make it a Good Day, G

and right, Mr. President -- ISIL is on defense, as far as the eye can see, which presently, is all over the internet.  God save us all.

It's a Chris Cuomo Day Thing

Dear America,

happy friday

I have a Valentine's wish...
can someone please mail a copy of the Declaration of Independence to CNN anchor Chris Cuomo?

why, pray tell?

with courtesy of www.breitbart.com, we have a nice clean copy of this exchange:

MOORE: I believe that’s a matter of law because our rights contained in the Bill of Rights do not come from the Constitution, they come from God. It’s clearly stated – 
CUOMO: Our laws do not come from God, your honor, and you know that. They come from man.
oh really, Chris?

boy oh boy, you little leftist aristocrats are just so enlightened.

I regret that I haven't referred to my most favorite book on the planet, The 5000 Year Leap, lately...if not actually, months, years.  It was early G Thing.  And I spent much of my time deeply enveloped in what I liken to first cause mode;  the beginning of every thing in America.  But let's put that on hold for a minute and return to CNN:

Cuomo and Moore continue...

MOORE: I would call it the organic law because the United States code calls it organic law. It is organic law because the law of this country calls it the organic law of the country means where our rights come from. And if they come from there, men can’t take it away. 
CUOMO: Our rights do not come from God. That’s your faith. That’s my faith, but not our country. Our laws come from the collective agreement and compromise. 
MOORE: It’s not a matter of faith, sir. It’s a matter of organic law, which states, ‘We hold these truths to be held equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.’ And the only role of government is stated in the next sentence is to secure those rights for us. The government starts taking those rights away from us, then it’s not securing and it is defiling the whole purpose of government.

[and thank you, breitbart, for always laying out the ugly truth with a virtual copy of everything]

"Our laws do not come from God, your honor, and you know that. They come from man," he said; "our rights do not come from God. That’s your faith. That’s my faith, but not our country. Our laws come from the collective agreement and compromise," making good at the alter of progressive oligarchy and omnipotence daily.   Isn't it lovely that CNN makes itself available to perpetuate the ongoing and growing solidarity against true American ideals.

BTW I'm merely choosing to print it in pink to pretend it's all pink unicorns and puppy dog tails -- struggling to preserve whatever sanity that remains so I can complete this task on the day.

So W.Cleon Skousen -- author of The Leap --  not only sets the record straight in simple terms, he highlights every good thing about why the Constitution, our Rule of Law, beginning with our Declaration of Independence, will NEVER be obsolete.

ORGANIC LAW, revisited

America began because --   "WHEN in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them..."

"we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain  UNALIENABLE RIGHTS, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.  THAT TO SECURE THESE RIGHT, GOVERNMENTS ARE INSTITUTED AMONG MEN, DERIVING THEIR JUST POWERS FROM THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED..."

Now, we, the America-to-be-or-not-to-be,  were fighting immense oppression from the British and the Church of England.  And of course, things change; times change.   But as Skousen says, "anyone who says the American Constitution is obsolete just because social and economic conditions have changed does not understand the real genius of the Constitution.  It was designed to control something which HAS NOT CHANGED AND WILL NOT CHANGE -- NAMELY, HUMAN NATURE."

The American government was designed, organically, and thoughtfully, to control any future oppressor; and more importantly, to reform how all governments had been designed to date!  Our Declaration of Independence, our Bill of Rights, our Constitution were the first of its kind!  And they were designed to emphasize the rights of mankind, endowed by our Creator, to reign over a highly, limited government.   Man was not dependent upon a king, or a church, or a government in order to experience life, liberty, and the pursuit of our happiness.

Something Greater makes it so! [And true to this day...by the way]

And this realization, this belief held tight to our chest for centuries, set forth the best environment for the betterment of the general welfare, and wealth creation, the world has ever known.

And just look at us!
Stumbling over every good deed and ambition our founders ever re-imagined with such arrogance and ignorance.

From Sam Adams:

"It is the greatest absurdity to suppose it [would be] in the power of one, or any number of men, at the entering of society, to renounce their essential natural rights, or the means of preserving those rights; when the grand end of civil government, from the very nature of its institution, is for the support, protection, and defense of those very rights; the principal of which...are life, liberty, and property.   If men, through fear, fraud, or mistake, should in terms renounce or give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the grand end of society would absolutely vacate such renunciation.  The right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave."
Natural Law was, and is, the settled science that cements the exceptional components of freedom and liberty with a limited government, thereby allowing the power of the individual potential to raise and secure the power of the whole society...that being "the collective" that Cuomo speaks so highly of.

And in fine keeping, the Natural Law our founders designated to be the societal cornerstone, was reliant upon our Unalienable Rights walking hand in hand with our Unalienable Duties!  The Left likes to ignore these duties (hence, the absence of common sense and the common man being at such odds these days).

As Skousen points out, "[T]here are two kinds of duties -- public and private. Public duties relate to public morality and are usually supported by local or state ordinances which can be enforced by the police power of the state.  Private duties are those which exist between the individual and his Creator.  These are called principles of private morality.  The only enforcement agency is the self-discipline of the individual himself."  [Of course, for non-believers, that self-discipline is then 'self' talking to 'self,' considering the decision to make oneself his very own God.]

The thing is, the best LAW for man was already in place and proven superior.  The Creator's Divine Law furnished not only true justice for all, equally, but it also allowed for the real power to be in the hands of the people --  verily distrusting government and its central control in every way.

Studying the history of the world and the rise and fall of governments, the founders recognized the follies of human nature and devised a system of checks and balances and limited powers in order to protect the individual  -- to chain the bureaucratic powers that be, restrain the natural propensity to mischief, and fully bind government, not man.

Honestly, I don't know how the Left keeps getting away with it.  Their arguments based on lies and misconceptions, coupled with their unrealistic and idealistic platforms based upon a Utopian dream, are so anti-American.

The Left wants us to believe that we all need government for this, that, patty-whack.  Combining a whirlwind of social justice schemes and income redistribution policies, the America we live in today is the antithesis  of our founders intentions, by Divine Design, and stands to destroy whatever self-reliance that remains.

"Our laws do not come from God, your honor, and you know that. They come from man," he said; "our rights do not come from God. That’s your faith. That’s my faith, but not our country. Our laws come from the collective agreement and compromise,"

you are an idiot, Chris Cuomo.
My rights, your rights, all come from our Creator.  Don't you get it?   It has nothing to do with whose in power.  End of story, you dumbass.  [Oh I feel good! You feel good?  I feel good.   Happy Friday!!!!!!]

And speaking of idiots how statesmen change... how times change...  this is something.   The Left would have us believe this is no big deal, right media matters?   oh, okay.    Of course, it's the same president who went to bed the night of Benghazi in order to be fully rested for the fundraiser in Vegas; and the same president who played a round of golf after James Foley was beheaded.   Pattern?

aw look at this girl, getting up on her high horse and all.  time for me to make my way to the sunset...for it surely ain't no morning in America, now is it.  C U  L8r  YOLO

Make it a Good Day, G

It's a National Prayer Breakfast Not for the Faint of Heart Thing

Dear America,

so, tweaking one of my favorite phrases a wee bit:

I'd agree with you, Mr. President, but then we'd both be wrong...

no, no, here's a wonderful response, coming from Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal:

“It was nice of the President to give us a history lesson at the Prayer breakfast,” Jindal said. “Today, however, the issue right in front of his nose, in the here and now, is the terrorism of Radical Islam, the assassination of journalists, the beheading and burning alive of captives. We will be happy to keep an eye out for runaway Christians, but it would be nice if he would face the reality of the situation today. The Medieval Christian threat is under control, Mr. President. Please deal with the Radical Islamic threat today.”

The shot through the heart heard round the world came out of our president's mouth while pontificating of the injustices at the hands of Christians -- in the "name of Christ," he said specifically -- speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast last Thursday.

Letting his ignorance of actual history and his deep-seated hatred for colonial America lead the way, President Obama said the following (mind you, fresh with the image of ISIL burning a Jordanian pilot alive, with a 22-minute video of the barbarity to show for it branded into our memory):

Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history.  And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.  In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ. 
Seriously, Mr. President?

We -- both in America and Great Britain -- abolished slavery in the name of Christ!  Do you have any clue as to who William Wilberforce is?  Look him up.  While the Crusades --  the Crusades happened IN RESPONSE to Muslim Jihad against "the infidels."  Not to mention, get a grip -- for all of this happened a long, long time ago, and all in an era when the entire world, as you say, happened to be "grappling with these questions."  You'd think it was just yesterday.

um, ringing in the Jindal perspective for an encore presentation: "The Medieval Christian threat is under control, Mr. President. Please deal with the Radical Islamic threat today."

But then,
Your Excellency,
you go on to say:

And, first, we should start with some basic humility.  I believe that the starting point of faith is some doubt -- not being so full of yourself and so confident that you are right and that God speaks only to us, and doesn’t speak to others, that God only cares about us and doesn’t care about others, that somehow we alone are in possession of the truth.

Who does this?  Who says this?  As a Christian, I'm offended of this sophomoric view you portray of us believers; while I'm pretty sure, going way back to Sunday School now,  as a Christian,  most of us were raised to believe God loves all the little children of the world...red, yellow, black or white.  

But more than that,
how about you say this directly to the brotherhood ...and when I say the brotherhood, we're not talking south side of Chi-town -- we're talking about the nation of Islam and all things justified in the name of Mohammed.


you scared?

but no, no,
to have the kind of courage of this president ....wow...

...mustering the strength to stand up to the "terrible deeds in the name of Christ" and to show up and bear all at a National Prayer Breakfast of all places....now that is something.  Who's full of himself now?

Given, reading the president's entire speech calls for the patience of Mother Teresa.  Honestly, he sounds all over the place -- deeply confused  -- co-mingling American ideals with falsehoods, grappling with keeping in step with his audience while keeping true to his own heart and soul, which seemed to struggle, at times, to reconcile with his own Christianity,  But feel free to read the President's remarks, here.

And for a quick rebuttal -- allow me to take the reins and send you to The Patriot Post.  go here.  Riding high and bear-back, of course, The Post  combines rugged American conservative opinion and news and values with integrity and grit and truth.

And from another view, read Star Parker's take  here.  [She attended the breakfast and witnessed the assault on Christianity herself]  Here's a thought from Star:

King Abdullah from Jordan was supposed to speak. But after one of his country's pilots was burned alive in a metal cage by terrorists, he needed to return to his country. In his place, a representative read his speech. After hearing it, I knew it was written from someone who knows the difference between good and evil. Someone who stands with Israel and Christians in the Middle East. And someone who yearned for a response from the world's only superpower, only to be told by our President that Christians are just as evil as terrorists.
And now imagine a speech when there isn't a rebuttal coming in from all directions; imagine that speech being so beautiful and unifying and wonderful and in sync with America's best interests at heart that the response was only applause.   Oh the girl can dream, can't she...

And speaking of King Abdullah -- let's compare kings, shall we?

here you go ...enjoy.

And just whose side are you on, President Obama?  I'm beginning to question.

 [um, that's not true. Pardon my Lyin' Williams moment. To go back to the  period of time when I was beginning to question, I would have to go all the way back to 2007; and to that end, I have questioned nearly everything he has either said and done, along with a  whole slew of things left undone.]

We should be afraid when there comes a day when it becomes acceptable to mischaracterize America's Christians of today and our Christian foundation.   But to have it come from our president and leader of the free world....really?   And to have it happen at the National Prayer Breakfast, intended to be a gathering on unity?    There is something so wrong with that.   You, sir, are no Martin Luther King, Jr....

This day, like so many coming 'round the mountain, is not ours to fully understand.

But a prayer or two, or 300 million minus the atheists,  might just be what the world needs now; love sweet love America.

Make it a Good Day, G

It's Chris Kyle Day --- granted, a day late -- Thing

Dear America,


As a servant of the Christ you must never lack courage.
It is a temptation to do so, for the shadows
group around you and tempt you to be weary, 
to have no confidence; they tempt you to say,
'I am no use,' and to have what you call an 
inferiority complex.  
Never doubt the power of God to work through you.
To think you are no good is to doubt God's power.

White Eagle, The Quiet Mind

so the thing is, 
today I feel a day late and an MRE short.

it's a combination of things, really.  nothing really stands out; but clearly, this dysfunction within me is doing the work of the devil's share, working against any possibility of making forward progress.

Distractions easily mount and the next thing you know, I've lost an entire day.  Oh sure, I show up at my job everyday, that is true.  It's not a total waste.  But oh the time in-between!  I simply can't account, so don't make me.

My intention was to show up yesterday --  with the subject: Chris Kyle.  It was after all, a day designated "Chris Kyle Day" in the glorious state of Texas, February 2nd.  In memoriam of the 'silent professional', the Navy SEAL brought to the attention of the entire country and brought to life on the big screen in American Sniper

the thing is, I didn't even watch the Super Bowl.  My mood, as you would know if you caught up with me "yesterday" was a wee bit, oh how do you say....deflated.  I just wasn't into it.  And given this girl LOVES her football, that was a major blow to my spirit. FIRST TIME EVER in my memory that I didn't watch the spectacle.  You want to talk about a shake up; if I wasn't living it myself, I never would have seen it coming.

But lo and behold,
there I was,
all by my lonesome,
not watching it.

Now coincidentally, upon the Friday Night Lights just before, I was loaned a KINDLE! for one reason and one reason only -- to read American Sniper.

The funny thing was -- and considering the boatload of distractions I can create out of thin air and on the fly like nobody's business  ---I didn't get to it right away.  huh. fascinating, isn't it?  yeah, sometimes I don't get me either.  moving on.org...

But come Saturday Night -- I hunkered down.  And when I dig in, I dig in deep.  Nobody, but nobody could find me unless, of course,  I want them to.  And I didn't.

Oh my fucking goodness it was good.
And the F bomb firmly planted there in Chris Kyle's honor.

Let me just say ....What a dude, what a dude, what        a        dude.

And what a way to see the war. 

You know which one, 

It's the war we are in against ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS hellbent on being on the receiving end of umpteen virgins for killing every westerner on the face of this planet in the name of their religion.

You see, Chris Kyle was very clear of exactly who is was up against.   
He lived it. He studied it.  He understood it.  And he was fully prepared to have his day with it.

He saw it play out on a daily basis --  not in a movie, not for audiences holding Raisinets and popcorn with extra butter, but in a way  way too close and personal kind of way; for his life and the lives of the brotherhood of every arm of the military and Iraqi civilians depended upon it.

Accompanied with the framework "God, Country, Family"  [IN THAT ORDER, mind you] Chris Kyle was not afraid.  And more than that, he was not afraid to identify the enemy for what they truly are -- radicalized, Islamic Extremists --  oh,  and perfectly crazy mother fuckers  to boot.  Oh my, just how do we reconcile one child of God with another without judgement and still come away with our full faith intact?  how?

Yes, I did.
Another F bomb dem dare bombs away.  pardon my french.  no, not really.

whatever, as Chris might say.

You see...the long and the short of it is...I missed the Super Bowl because I found myself deep in the trenches with a real  American hero. I couldn't put the book down until I finished the one and only task in front of me.

I couldn't be distracted by petty things or even modern man's frivolous use of his time, watching football -- even if it included seven layer dips, buffalo wings with extra sauce, jello shots in team colors, pizza, of course, all chased down with enough beer to fill the Pacific Ocean during the biggest game of the fucking year.  I wasn't having any of it.

I was making my own heaven listening to the voice of Chris Kyle [along with his wife, Taya, who happened to flow in and out sharing her intimate thoughts throughout...and I loved that].

I am still taken aback, really.


In awe of what our boys and girls are up against, as always, having never stopped; but now!  holy shit.

I know I couldn't do it.
And so, I, needless to say, rely on other Americans -- Americans like Chris Kyle -- to step up in my place ....

to defend my right to live, 
and speak, 
and do, 
whatever I want, 
even if on some days it is nothing at all.... putt-sing my life away, perfectly distracted, and mindlessly falling off the path from my life's purpose and whatever comes next, after shipping my baby girl off to college leaving me with so many options I can't see straight... as if I had all the time in the world. 

run on with that run on sentence.

At least I'm not afraid to call it what it is.




Put it all together and what have you got?

Know your enemy.

Keep your sights on doing what is right.

Stay focused and diligent and patient.

Trust God to put you wherever God pleases and that it IS exactly where you need to be in that moment....for THY will be done.   Can I get an amen?!

And above all things, do NOT runaway. [how 'bout that "runaway" called out in Chris Kyle style...get the book...and you, too, will know]

yeah, I like running away, too, sometimes.  Sometimes, I even run with scissors, don't tell mom.

But I digress.

I am amazed that Chris Kyle survived all his days over there, knee deep in war games and shit (literally).   Read what he has to say, in his own words, complete with his own way with words, before you go see the movie, if that be at all possible.

Before I leave you today, this day, February 3rd and clearly the DAY AFTER  I wudda cudda shudda been here -- 

check out Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, here.  "Despite what your mama told you, violence does solve problems."
and   America's Mighty Warriors, here.  Pass it on!

and Lone Survivor Foundation, here.  NEVER QUIT!

As I have been catching some of the episodes of  Sons of Liberty in all my spare time (he he), I am reminded of the fight we have deep within our soul of America.

We are entering another phase of fighting the good fight, even while most people go about their lives totally unaware.    And I truly believe, 2016 will bring us an election that either seals America's fate in fundamental transformation in every way, never to see the light of self-reliance and opportunity and  wealth again -- OR, the summation of generations of actual Sons and Daughters of real Liberty take America back for the benefit of the whole, and for future generations to come...

....for all the right reasons

...with all the absolute determination to dig in for the rest of our lives, no matter what

...for all the happiness of the world to come, for we truly are exceptional and the guiding light.

It's a turning point that demands every American's full attention and salute, not to be distracted; demanding the kind of comradery that works succinctly,  seamlessly, patiently putting all the variables together and lining up the target;  perhaps working osmosis-ly, organically, kinda like a code of honor...  spread the word.

Last thing,

from the bottom of my heart, thank you Chris Kyle.  this one's for you.

Make it a Good Day, G
