11 September...

What do I think?

The attack on the WTC.

Benghazi.

And the people who claim that it wasn't Islam...

Yet, the terrorists who attacked the WTC in 2001 and the terrorists who attacked Benghazi 11 years later were Muslims who were at least partially sponsored by Islamic governments.  Governments represent people, whether they are free people  or subjects.  By extension I guess that means Islam attacked the WTC and the US Embassy in Benghazi.  Point being: the attackers were not just a loose knit group of individuals set on causing mayhem.  They had help.

And courts in the United States have come to that same conclusion and have found in favor of the WTC victims against state sponsored terrorism.  Particularly against Iran.  And the courts know that Saudi Arabia was involved in protecting or supplying the 9-11 terrorists, many of whom were Saudi citizens.  It's a bit more difficult to go after the Saudis.  Why?  Well, they are our allies.  Kinda.  But, wait...  Wasn't Osama a Saudi?  Well, yes, but he was simply an individual.  Who was our ally. Until he wasn't...

After 17 years I believe America has lost her desire to see justice served.  Other things occupy our time now...

You get what I'm saying.  Or not.   It's overly simplistic, I know.  Perhaps I'm not thinking clearly?

I miss it...

I miss the blog, but I don't have the fire...  There is so much going on and it's all crazy.  Who would have thought we would get to this point?  Ahhhhh, ummmmm, I take that back.  It should have been predictable.  The possibility of 'free stuff' makes people crazy.  And the desire to tell others how to live their lives.  Powerful motivators.

And, of course, the owners...  The people who own the politicians who are supposed to be working for us.  That is, of course, old news.  Old news that too many people deny.

Me?  I'm OK.  Life is different without Judy.  My Navigator.  But we're getting on.  It's been almost 17 months.  I should be past it by now, right?  ;)

Anyway...  I miss you guys.  ("guys" being gender neutral.  Perhaps I should have said "guys and gals" or "folks"...?  I have said "guys" all my life.  Probably not going to change that now.)

Stay safe.

 Just riding along...
Peace.

The one thing they agree on...

And there are those who still deny that all of our politicians work for the same masters...

Different strokes for different folks...

Different standards, I suppose...

Perhaps "Gun control advocates..." would be more accurate...?

Good Friday...



"On Thursday as they ate the Passover meal with Jesus, the disciples believed that the kingdom was coming and they were on the front end of a revolution. Then came the tragedy of Friday and, somehow even worse, the silence of Saturday. They ran. They doubted. They despaired. Yet, within the grave, God's power was still flowing like a mighty river beneath the ice of winter. And then there was Sunday morning."

Be Afraid...



The teachers knew...
The principal knew...
The police knew...
The FBI knew...
The students knew...
And yet, they blame it on the gun!


Complete failure at every level.  But, but, but...  It's the guns.

Put an end US gun rights...


Agendas...


Just gonna leave this here...

Trust...


Seems to be a true story.  :)

These things...


I'm not saying that our kids aren't smart.  I'm not saying that they are incapable of original, compassionate, heartfelt thought regarding the "mass shootings" in our schools.  I am saying that it doesn't seem all that strange that they follow the unresearched, agenda driven, narrative laden, Liberal thought process in their "protests".  I agree with this meme wholeheartedly.  The idea of a "walkout" spread like wildfire and was approved by most schools.  They weren't spontaneous.  They weren't planned by "the children".  It was a big ole' Liberal propaganda production.

These people are the "useful idiots" spoken about so often in history.  They don't know what they are doing and are easily manipulated.  They are unable to sit down and think their actions through to their logical conclusions.  And the people pulling their strings are driven by pure emotion.  No logic.  No reason.  Emotion.

The Left seems to believe that once they get rid of Trump and all of his followers, they will be able to regain control and get things back to the "way they were".  They don't understand that there is a reason that they were removed from power and that there will be no "going back".  They are going to have to learn that they aren't the only ones affected by "life and government".  They don't understand that not everyone sees the world the way they see it.  They are going to have to learn to keep their nose on their face and to live and let live.

It won't go well if they can't learn to live with those that disagree with them.  I cannot figure out how we got to this point where there is so much desire by the Left to control everything.  I think it's all about all of the "free shit" that they want.  Or, perhaps it's about the indoctrination they have received from the government sponsored public education system?

Ahhhhhh well...  Time will tell.


Department of Education.  No Child Left Behind.  Teaching to the test.

Somehow we have gone from #2 in the world to about #25 or #40, or something.  Since about 1978.  That would be about the time of the creation of the DOE by Jimmy Carter.  Or something.  (I'm making this shit up from memory right now.  Don't try to hold me to these ramblings if they are inaccurate.)

Anyway, I'm a bit rusty.  Forgive me.

Peace.

Still hanging in there...

Thanks to each of you who have left comments here or who have sent me emails.  I appreciate it.

Life is definitely different.

Easter is upon us.  Our favorite time of year.

Anyway...

Peace.

;)

I was real proud of that mustache, by the way...
