Sharpen Your Hatchet While The World Screams

Just Who Is That Man In My Mirror?

Because I have been sitting so much with my mother in her illness, I have had a lot of time to ponder some things. To look deeply at myself. I asked myself some hard questions, examined what I believe and maybe more importantly, what I am unsure about. Short of you being the terminally ill party, nothing draws out your inner feelings like watching someone you love die.

Humanity seems poised to slide into global despotism. Tyranny and false worship of the collective and its goals seems to be more than just a fad here in 2018. Our system of representative government has utterly failed. What is worse than one royal tyrant? Thousands of them. Our public servants have become our masters, by force and by coercion.

The public at large seems more than willing to allow themselves to be completely enslaved in a system where they exchange their labor, and therefore their very lives, for the chains which will hold them. They actually demand it. Giving power to men and women who despise them and who will use every machination to keep that power. It indeed is like watering the tree that holds up the noose around our necks.

As I have eluded in the past, I believe that individualists are incapable by and large of herd mentality and are more solid in their principles. So we see in the comments at big sites like WRSA, and eloquently explained here...

So we probably will not ever come together like the collectivists do because their nature is the collective while ours is the individual (and then tribal).

Where does this leave us?

In reality, not really in such a bad place.

Read this from NC Scout about how perhaps lots and lots of individuals could really give collectivism a bad time.

Now to the man in the mirror.

What am I willing to do? What are you willing to do?

TL recently opined that the time for words is about done. That we are into nut cutting time. Are we? Are you?

Are you really good with it? It isn't like the movies. I don't think we will feel good, or inspired or even vindicated. I think we will feel hollow. I think our souls will ache and our hearts will dry up. If you enjoy it, what is to come, then I don't want you around me and mine honestly.

We each should be examining ourselves, making peace with the requirements of our position. Hesitation will spell doom, the time for fleshing out your willingness is long before you are faced with opportunity.

Masks are coming down. It isn't a matter of coexistence with these people. Like (i) slam and many other evils, it is come along or be killed.

They mean to convert you, to heal your thinking and if not... they will kill you or imprison you. 

We seem to be waiting for a sign. 

Tick Tock


  1. They mean to convert you, to heal your thinking and if not... they will kill you or imprison you.

    That still isn't a reality for most people even among the supposed awoke folks...Why do I say that, because of people's actions at this point show me that it doesn't concern them...They still are to comfortable and since it isn't at their doorstep they aren't worried about it...Shoot it is at some people's doorstep and they still aren't doing anything... Still praying for you Brother hope she finds peace...

  2. To my former countrymen,
    Paul Waldman in "The Week" recently wrote an article titled "America's made-up culture of guns." He uses many words attempting to explain how we must better understand your positions and make concessions to you. He talks about these things to make himself and you feel better about your positions, and ends up denigrating us deplorable people anyway, because that is the default position of progressive socialists. He wants us to be more "accepting" of your culture and understand how you don't want guns in your society.
    Mr. Waldman asserts household gun ownership has fallen from 50% to 32%, mostly due to more people living in big cities and not rural areas. Yet, he fails to note than millions of citizens living in those big cities are unable to own firearms due to the anti-2A policies of the left, while armed criminals terrorize and kill unarmed law abiding citizens without fear of encountering an armed victim.

    It’s not just your anti-gun culture that is in opposition to the culture of those of us who exercise our 2nd amendment rights. Your culture of depravity in media, lifestyles choices, pseudo science, nanny state, killing unborn children, open borders with unchecked illegal immigrants, forced acceptance of behaviors that not too long ago were considered mental illnesses, assault upon our freedom of religion and speech and general willingness to demonstrate that you despise us for being unlike you that is in opposition to values we hold.
    Every inch we’ve ever yielded to you in the culture war has only emboldened you to push for a mile.
    Well, we’re just not going to take it much more. Your side has pushed and derided and declared war upon us. Now that you can see there may be unintended consequences to your actions you want to extend an olive branch?
    Sorry, experience shows us that you don’t mean it and next week you’ll be slapping us with your gloves in challenge to something else about us you don’t agree with.
    We have shown a willingness to allow you your depravity in some states while desperately trying to keep some states for ourselves. Yet, you are unwilling to let us be as we have been to allow you to live as you see fit. We see that you will never be satisfied until you have crushed those who think and act and live their lives differently than you.
    There exists no longer a “united” states of America, you progressive socialists have destroyed it. So, I leave you with this,
    “When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”


  4. When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns it's back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe.
