Talking and Doing

LIO10625It has been said that everybody wants to be a beast until it’s time for a beast to do what a beast does. I am well aware that I can give my readers what they want to read and try to stay in the grey area, but that is not being true to myself. I have written on various topics before, like my blog’s description implies, but I feel that I must write . . . even if some of it falls into the category of redundancy.

In the book of Matthew it is written that a house divided against itself cannot stand. The last time that America stood unified was during World War II (no, I’m not talking about 9/11 when everyone was freaked out and Congress joined hands for prayer on the capitol steps). Americans stood unified when our soil was attacked in 1941. The government reacted in a way that secured our nation, gave the military what was needed to win; and, believe it or not, collateral damage when targeting the enemy was a concern but not an avoidance . . . then there is today.

We have an enemy on our soil, under the guise and protection of religious freedom. Americans are dying . . . on our soil. Our government immediately responds with threats to the American people for “bad mouthing” Muslims and calling for new and stronger gun laws. France has some of the toughest gun laws in the world, and it is plain to see that they did not work in the prevention of terror attacks. The present government has a socialist ideology of “Just lay down your arms, people, and we’ll protect you.” Are there any George Orwell fans in the room?

“The cat joined the Re-education Committee and was very active in it for some days. She was seen one day sitting on a roof and talking to some sparrows who were just out of her reach. She was telling them that all animals were now comrades and that any sparrow who chose could come and perch on her paw; but the sparrows kept their distance.”
–Animal Farm

I admit it. I am nervous. No, not from fear of the sub-human species who threaten our way of life, but I am concerned about the future of our nation. The fox has been given keys to the hen house . . . unbelievably by the farmer, of all people! Our borders are bleeding everywhere. Citizens are scared to report someone suspicious for fear of being labeled a bigot. What can be done to stop the madness? During the Revolutionary War, approximately three percent of the population stepped up to face the strongest military force in the world. What will our legacy be after this is all said and done? Will people look back and shake their heads and wonder why we sat on our hands? Or will people look back and see a determined nation who would not allow themselves to be bullied? General George Patton once said to the troops of the Third Armored Division, “No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making some other poor dumb bastard die for his country.” Let’s win this.

  1. Truer words have never been written. I guarantee you, when my brother joined the Army (Airborne) after 9/11, this is not what he joined for.

    And how ironic, while they say to us, “We will protect you”, they’re projecting the message to the police, “You better not protect them”.

  2. I wish I could like this 100 times. “The fox has been given keys to the hen house . . . unbelievably by the farmer, of all people!” THIS is my thought exactly. We, the people, are allowing these people in and justify it by saying that they deserve all the freedoms that we have – – – the same freedoms that *they* want to take away. What I don’t understand is how people are so blind to this. All they have to do is read the Koran and the teachings – – The only way for those who follow the Islamic faith to get to their heaven is by eliminating everyone who is an infidel – that means to kill *everyone* who does not follow the teachings of Mohammed. They also believe in Taqiyya – lies. They will lie however they must, about whatever they must, in order to achieve their goal. Peace loving? Of course. That’s what they ‘say’. According to Taqiyya, they can even pretend to be non-Muslims as long as they say it with their mouths only, but not with their hearts. “War is deceit,” they say. THIS, what they are doing, IS war. Deep breath – maybe I should have just written a post of my own. I’m so angered right now at the blindness of the people. Thank you for standing strong and voicing the truth.

      1. Yes, indeed. I just watched a documentary (Dead End: The Calais Crisis) last night about a refugee camp they’ve set up in France. It got me so stirred that I couldn’t even finish watching it. I’m terribly afraid for our nation. It’s hard for God to do His job if everyone keeps kicking Him out.

  3. Well written! Our country has become so diverse in it’s ideologies that unification is rapidly becoming, or has already become, an impossibility. It may take actual attack on our soil by an enemy that is overall seen as an army. 911 did, indeed, unify us. Because of media coverage worldwide, we no longer look at 125 lives lost as an oddity. That’s sad. Fortunately, like you, I’ve read the end of the Book. We win. Rather He wins!

    1. Yes! The area that falls between now and “He wins” is the tough part. It doesn’t really affect me all that much. I’m concerned for the future of my children and their children. As far as an attack on our soil by an “army,” it will not happen. Since Korea, military strategy has shown that an army can NOT fight the United States head to head. ISIS is learning day by day how to win, using our own pampering ideas of religion and political correctness. Many, many small punches can be, and usually are, as fearsome as one huge haymaker.
