“It’s the end of the world as we know it. It’s the end of the world as we know it. It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.” Chorus to The End Of The World As We Know it by R.E.M. What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from. T. S. Eliot . Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. Martin Luther King, Jr.
First, my hat off to the City regulator folks who wisely decided to allow people to raise chickens in town. Liberty to feed your family any way you can is important. I was talking to a friend the other day about December 21st when a realization came over me! If December 21st is the end of the world, then my problems are over. If it’s the end of the world as we know it, then my work is just gonna be starting. Either way I really doubt that the world is gonna end or that the Monopoly game will be over. Bankers love Monopoly way too much. And my friend Mad Dog is just not so lucky as to have everything just float away, he is after all Irish. Okay, so if the end of the world did happen on December 21st it would mean no more bills, no more work, no more vacation, no more day to day grind, and especially no more rat races. YAY! Yes, your credit card debt will all be forgiven. Now, as we all know there are two things in life that people say are certain, DEATH and TAXES.
If you honestly think that the government is going to let the world end you are sadly mistaken. The Govmint simply cannot do without your income taxes. Besides the Chinese would be absolutely PISSED! Can you imagine if the world came to an end without the US repaying its debt to China? I mean we cannot possibly think that Apple is gonna let all those iPods made by 12 year old Chinese workers go to waste. Another aspect is that we will never know how Obama care turned out. Think about it, all that ruckus for something that never happened. Like a show being cancelled at the cliff hanger episode at the end of the first season. Now would that be politically correct? As we all know political correctness is a must these days. This just in from McDill Air Force Base in TAMPA, FL – Forget new gear, weapons, or sophisticated targeting systems. The newest tool coming to combat troops is low-tech: beards. In a report released yesterday, research think-tank Xegis Solutions noted that beards have a direct correlation to combat effectiveness. For more information look it up!
Beards make men more combat effective….hmmmmm? Guess I oughta grow a beard just in case aliens invade. Now as we watch the death throes of our republic (maybe), at the hands of someone whose intentions for us bible hugging gun clingers are questionable, we all wonder if TEOTWAWKI isn’t coming. The latest mass murder at a school, committed by a person of questionable mental capacity is another opportunity that is not being passed up by the control freaks. Once the laws pass and all of your guns disappear, life will be so much simpler. All of the law abiding folks will become victims and only criminals will have guns. That criminal element will include the government because the Second Amendment is an inalienable RIGHT. When the founding fathers wrote the constitution, the second amendment had nothing to do with hunting. It had everything to do with preventing tyranny in government. The shooting in Newtown, Connecticut was reprehensible, and has devastated countless lives, gun control at the level being suggested by our good Governor Hickenstoopid will do nothing to decrease the violence. Crimes like the one in Connecticut have been in fact on the decline. Hickenstoopid blamed the magazine capacity on the amount of devastation in Aurora. But when we examine the facts it was a murdering gunman who was responsible for Aurora and Connecticut. Police have no responsibility to protect us, the gun they carry is to protect themselves. If only one of those teachers, or the principal, would have had a gun, the results would have been far different. Basing my argument on the left’s argument that there could be a propensity for someone who is unstable to go off the deep end then we must disarm everyone to include police and soldiers. There is a possibility that anyone could go off the deep end at any moment. But I remember a little incident in another country by the name of Rwanda during the Clinton Administration. Hundreds of thousands dead, and the adversarial group used machetes with no magazines what so ever. Makes for gruesome work but they did it, killed lots of people in a few short weeks with over sized steak knives. So it doesn’t take a high capacity magazine or a rifle to commit atrocities.
Speaking of atrocities, I just learned today that there is a scheme being operated from the US Federal prison system in Atlanta. It seems a very entrepreneurial inmate was selling information about crimes to other inmates so that the inmates could then turn states evidence for the FBI, or whoever, and receive reduced sentences themselves. “At least 48,895 federal convicts, one of every eight, had their prison sentences reduced in exchange for helping government investigators, the probe shows.” Or at least that’s what is being reported in USA Today. Man gotta love the lengths the FBI and those other three letter agencies will go to for a conviction. This helped the FBI build cases and well, guess it stimulated the prison economy. Anyway look it up on the internet “Federal prisoners use snitching for personal gain”. So is it TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it) or is it just the end? Yea well, who knows? I have a feeling there ain’t much gonna change until we change it. It is probably time for a reset as we see a government in charge that is destructive to the good and happiness of the people. Ammo, magazines, and guns were flying out the door at the gun shows all over America today. I wonder if the guvmint is thinkin that they will pass a law and poof all the guns will go away…..I doubt it in a very big way. So, I am going out with Mad Dogtomorrow and digging a deep whole where we can watch the end of the world happen. Prolly gonna make it on the side of Tava (Mountain of the Sun) so we got a good vantage point. Okay so you know Tava as Pikes’ Peak. See, no one told Zebulon it was never lost. The Ute Indians knew where the mountain was and they also knew the name of the mountain. Until after the end of the world next week…..Eli Stone sends “It is necessary for every American, with becoming energy to endeavor to stop the dissemination of principles evidently destructive of the cause for which they have bled. It must be the combined virtue of the rulers and of the people to do this, and to rescue and save their civil and religious rights from the outstretched arm of tyranny, which may appear under any mode or form of government.” –Mercy Warren, History of the Rise, Progress, and Termination of the American Revolution, 1805
