I Am Somebody! Are You?

The only way to get things done is to get involved and work.  With a new administration (which I still don’t trust completely) we have a chance to make some long-needed changes.  But it will take our involvement and some serious effort.  Sitting on our hands and waiting for a nanny government to do it for us is just more Marxist laziness.  Remember, we do not want a nanny government.  We want a smaller, lean, mean fighting machine of a government, doing the job of protecting our country, which is what it is tasked with by the Constitution. 

Getting rid of little big O was a first step in draining the swamp, but there is so much more to do.  If we do not agitate for change, or rather a return to the rule of law with the Constitution foremost, we will have nothing but the status quo.  Perhaps a few changes, but we’ll still have a welfare state with rampant fraud, open borders, government interference in all aspects of our lives, and all the rest of the crap that goes along with Socialism/Marxism. 

If we want to see America become great again, it is up to us, not the government.  Remember, a government powerful enough to give you everything you want is powerful enough to take everything you have, including God-given rights.  We cannot allow this to happen, therefore we cannot be un-involved going forward from here as citizens of the republic.  Our Constitution gives us the ways to make the necessary changes legally and peacefully (or not if absolutely necessary).  Of course, most of the changes needed to restore the country are simply a return to original-intent Constitutionality.  WROL is simply not an acceptable way to live.  So buckle up and let’s git ‘er done!



The Cold Hard Truth

Nobody says you have to believe, but what if you were asked “What would you accept as evidence?” how can you answer?  If you say you would accept no evidence then your mind is closed to any possibility that your beliefs are wrong.  This is common among Marxists and delusional snowflakes and cupcakes.  Their arguments are usually based around false accusations, straw man arguments, circular reasoning, part to whole comparisons, and other logical fallacies.  I recommend the book “The Fallacy Detective,” written to teach classic Greek logic to home schoolers.  Written by the Bluedorn brothers, this book teaches you to spot lies and propaganda that are all around us.  If you can expose false logic, you don’t even have to be well versed in the subject being discussed.    The war is on for the hearts and minds of the American people, and due to Marxist indoctrination we are losing.  This link is not as good as I had hoped it would be, but there is still some good stuff there.



Destruction Of The Air Force

Obama and the politically correct (incorrect) clowns that have been in charge for the last 8 years have done what they can to destroy our military.  Not just with stupid rules and lack of funding/personnel cuts, but in other ways.  This story details the loss of military decorum and discipline, both vital to a properly operating military force.  I hope Trump’s new SecDef can correct this.  Go, General Mattis! 



A Good Book


I had this on my reading list for a while, and it took over a month to get it from Amazon, adding to my wait.  The book is ‘Surveillance Detection, The Art of Prevention’ by Clark and Algaier.  It is not a ‘fun’ read, but it is fascinating.  Written by professionals in the field, it is simple enough for the soccer mom, and deep enough for the pros.  As an LEO, I think the principles presented would be invaluable to the woman with an order of protection, and to the average Joe who owns his own business (or manages one) and has to take the receipts to the bank on a regular basis.

Just how do you know when you are being watched?  What do you do to detect that surveillance?  And when detected, what do you do about it.  The book’s intent is to provide protection by teaching basic and advanced principles of avoiding the goblins.  And while the intent is not to teach surveillance techniques, the subjects are so intricately related that one cannot help but learn some handy things about being a watcher, not just watching the watchers.

It is important that we never stop learning in the areas of self-preservation and preparedness, and this is a very handy book for that purpose.  It includes scenarios from real life and templates for you to use to evaluate your daily risks, options based on those evaluations, and where to go for help.  If you like to read to enhance your skills, ‘Surveillance Detection’ is a worthwhile addition to your reference library.
