Looks like a duck, quacks like a duck...must be a duck
or in this case an 'murican army of oppression....
h/t The Journal and Prof Whitehead. Link here
"A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.”—James Madison
“Here [in New Mexico], we are moving more toward a national police force. Homeland Security is involved with a lot of little things around town. Somebody in Washington needs to call a timeout.”—Dan Klein, retired Albuquerque Police Department sergeant
Salient point......"If the United States is a police state, then the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is its national police force, with all the brutality, ineptitude and corruption such a role implies. In fact, although the DHS’ governmental bureaucracy may at times appear to be inept and bungling, it is ruthlessly efficient when it comes to building what the Founders feared most—a standing army on American soil."
Read it all......we fail to remember when this government took it as a mission to kill our own. Southerners and Indians remember all to well the hundreds of thousands who died. In fact, the US government has been a solid performing killing machine for generations....the world over.
Look at the southern border...bringing in thousands upon thousands of illegal, illiterate, and violent aliens amoung thousands of sick and indigent people who have nothing in common with any of the normal population in any state in the disunion.........this government means to kill, steal, and destroy. That folks is a biblical phrase and it has one specific owner...

I know he has gone home, but I do and will always hear, see, and feel my Dad in my heart and head. And I am glad. I feel his presence as I walk, work, and live on our farm. Even now, when I go to work, I feel his smile and hear his interest and excitement in my work. Each time my career took a step, he was proud of his son, especially when he called me to ask how that last interview went. I think he as was excited as I was to hear I was headed back to Tech where we both got our engineering degrees. In fact, in spite of many things, he was always proud of all of his sons. He did not always understand us, but he was proud. He hurt those years there was so much strife. I chose a photo from 1972, we were younger and times were tough for the two of us. Times were tough in the family in general. That would get tougher for all of us before they got better. As I got older I came to realize just how difficult life can be and rearing three head strong boys can be a challenge for parents. And I know he did the best he knew how to do. Based on the three of his sons, he (and Mom) did not fail. For my part of the relationship, I thank God that I grew up and times got better between Dad and I. Through his examples (good and “less than good”), he set a standard for me as a person, a man, a husband and engineer.
Today, I honor my Dad all he taught me and how he loved me as his son.

Blackhawks, kiowas....and Stooges.....
It seems that the government doesn't sell the sand fleas everything. Some military stuff we just leave unguarded and let them drop by to pick them up. (LINK). It seems the mighty Iraq army that we have feed, clothed, trained....well you get the point.... have collapsed and run like dogs from Mosul. Leaving behind all kinds of things and lives.
Do we really care, after all it is really just a civil war in a foreign country that is basically Muslim on Muslim infighting. Well yes, we should care because, now they have a new and better toy than before. We have given them air power after all. And the US are the source of these toys as well as the unrest that results in the war.
We know they can fly, remember 9/11? We taught them how. So we may very well see these helos show up in Syria or anywhere in the sand box. But then we are supplying both sides, war is good business you know....
Ding Dong, a demo-rat is gone .....(Link). lets all wish Mr Puckett a well deserved good by...
And it seems that losing a demo-rat has already paid dividends in a state that had been operating pretty well until the election put the demo-rats into power.
Now, it seems Virginians who live in the 38th District (Bland County (All); Buchanan County (All); Dickenson County (All); Montgomery County (Part); Norton City (All); Pulaski County (All); Radford City (All); Russell County(All); Smyth County (Part); Tazewell County (All); Wise County (Part)) have the chance to make amends for voting for the current democratic carpetbagger and replace former Senator Puckett with a true Virginiaian conservative, assuming they can find one in the district.
In addition, while all good Virginians can celebrate the end of Senator Pucketts term in office, it seems to have some interesting side show opportunities if the AG has any moral foundation. (Link)
Wait, he is a demo-rat as well.....one who has already enlisted the federales in a war against other Virginians.
Elections have consequences...

If ever there was a better indication of the malinvestment boom created by an interfering Fed, this is it. As demand for shipping collapses on real slowing in the global economy - markets have "told" shipbuilders to "build it and they will come"... here is a ship-shipping ship, shipping shipping ships.

The news has recorded a number of Russian bomber flights over Europe and now over the Pacific near Kalifornia. Links to recent stories are here, here, and here for a sampling. Google the topic and there are a lot more reports.
What is somewhere between sad and funny is the west wondering what to make of it. The problem is no more complex than the bully in the school yard or the new tough guy on the block marking his territory.
But in the west, where the age old concepts of power and force have been rejected for a weak form of "diplomacy", we are stunned by the show of force. The west struts around like a bunch of powerful peacocks while in fact they have no real ability to project power. It is simple old world big stick diplomacy and they know they have the upper hand.
The Russians and their allies have in fact bank rolled the west, and the west has become soft and dependent. They know we can not afford to even talk about shooting one of them down, much less actually do it. Imagine for a moment what would happen if they decide to cause an economic collapse. This is not 1939 or 1940....this time when the money dries up, the cities will devolve into anarchy. the nation will go into grid lock. There is no "'merica" that will gel into a solid fighting force as it did after Pearl Harbour. Oh, they would suffer some economic loss, but not nearly what we would feel.
Unfortunately, there is no easy or quick way out of this jam. The west has been on a track that has created a weak, short sighted, narcissist self serving and self indulgent society. It has a shallow understanding of right and wrong so there is no inner or moral strength. There is no depth of character or patience. Meals are fast food and the news is sound bites. There is little honor or respect. Many of our people are ashamed to be what they are. The PETA folks honor animals more than humans, the left progressive "earthers" honor "nature" over mankind. White guilt, black power, La Raza....all are signs of hatred and disunity hidden behind "diversity". Too many people celebrate the option to kill children through abortion and older folks through euthanasia. Either way, it is celebrating death, not life..
This is a track that is self destructive. The Russians or Chinese don't need to attack as much as they need to simply collect the remains of what was great people. But we were great due to our faith and freedom in God and the disciplines taught through the scriptures. Principles of honoring the one God and his Son who died for us, through prayer and worship. Applying the scripture lessons of truth, faith, respect, responsibility, honor.....everything we have tossed out the window.
We can not fix this problem through government. No we must change it at home. We must go to church, a church that teaches a true faith. That will eliminate almost all of the denominational churches, most of them make bargains around the 10 commandments of one sort or another. Pay down debts and stop borrowing. Invest locally and stop banking in the big banking system. Stop flying and avoid all government travel search operations Do not give your consent, restrict government at every turn. Get off the grid. Resist the government at every turn as they try to stop us from making them irrelevant Stop taking children to public school....home school and church school. Allow boys to be boys and girls to be girls.....and expect fathers to be men who love and respect their wives and teach respect to the children. Expect children to obey parents and tell Child Protective services they are out of a job in almost all cases. Take strong sovereign freedom stands in every situation. It will be a long long road,....but there is no option.
The scriptures are full of accounts where Israel turned from God, turned from the teachings of God and the result was a weak society and ruin for generations. Returning to the teachings of God brings us back to the basic principles that lead to a strong society and a society he can bless as a result.
I don't worry about the bombers, I worry about the damage we have done and are doing to ourselves.
