Look at me now, baby! That’s usually a phrase someone would say when they’ve achieved something that no one thought could be done or was, at least, unlikely. For example, I got my master’s degree. I, for one, never thought it would happen, but it did. I know several people who figured I’d drop out of college before getting my bachelor’s, let alone my MBA. So, that’s where I would say “look at me now!” However, this is a different story attached to the phrase.
As many of you know, Nevada may mark the first stand against the federal government that may spark the initial volley into a new revolution or civil war. As militiamen and women converged on the Bundy’s ranch and surrounding area in Clark County, Nevada, we saw something that hasn’t happened in this country since the mid 1800s. We saw armed Americans show up in force against an abusive federal government.
Yesterday, I wrote about the goings on in Clark County, Nevada at the Bundy Ranch. I discussed that the Bureau of Land Management came in to enforce a lawsuit decision that stemmed from the government’s desire to protect the desert tortoise. He has been in dispute with the federal government since 1993.
First off, let me apologize for taking such a long break from writing. Had a lot going on and just flat out didn’t have time. Second, I will not be discussing the President’s speech from last night. Nothing in his speech was really surprising and it’s all the same stuff he always says or it’s all stuff we already knew he was doing, like killing liberty and freedom.
What I want to discuss are drones. Yes, again with the drones in our skies. Why? Because Fox News has a story on drones that confirms what I’ve been saying in past articles. Read the Fox News posting below.
The American Indian is often shown in two lights. Some show them as proud warriors with a strong culture and heritage. The other, well, the other is less flattering. You know, that as a savage drunk that’s dependent on the government for spoiled meat. Does it depend on the tribe as to which is true? Not really. I think, rather, it depends on who’s point of view the “light” is coming from.
I’m sure you’ve seen the flags at half-mast this week. I’m sure you know it’s for Nelson Mandela. In life and death, Mandela is celebrated as a great civil rights leader… for South Africa. Why are US flags at half-mast for a non-American? While I have no real problem with Mandela himself, the issue at hand is that this process of lowering our flag is reserved for American people.
Growing up, if your youth was like mine, you had one parent who gave you everything and was easier on you than the other. In most cases, it seems to be that the mother is more giving and easier on the child than the father. The father is more disciplinarian than the mother is; he tends to say “no” more often. It’s not that he doesn’t care or want the best for you, he just has a different way of showing it.
I hear people talking all the time about how we’ve lost so much in the last 20 years, as far as freedom is concerned; especially since September 11, 2001. Well, you’re right. We have lost a lot of the freedoms we once enjoyed. We have had liberties squashed under the thumbs of tyranny disguised as security. But, now, people are beginning to wake up and get loud. So, you want your freedom and liberty back, too?
