  1. CR@P!

    Just now able to connect (had to relocate).

    Shouldn’t be having any problems… considering this is basically a new computer. ­čśí

  2. This is the ‘whitest’ place I’ve ever lived… very few blacks or Mexicans here at all.

    Towns this small don’t appear to appeal much to most of them.

  3. ÔÇťThey tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power.ÔÇŁ

    1. “I stand up, fight for what’s right, then my ass gets thrown in jail, it was worth it”

      1. Oh yeah, then they took my gun and my right to own one away. This was 30 years ago.Won’t let me vote either. Ask me if I give a shit.

        I’m no saint, but goddamnit I dont go easy.

        I was yelling so loud the asshole SOB’S sprayed pepper spray down my throat, handcuffed.

  4. I see why you have leadership qualities, Henry, especially with your ability to rally others, and to point the way when some flounder. I remember a few weeks ago when you asked that if something happens to you who will take up the banner. I know some Trenchers said they would, but who could give it voice? That is something that also needs to be honed. How to speak passionately with conviction and to become and unstoppable voice for The Bill of Rights. That said, you have my deep respect and I hope you live for many decades to come.


  5. ÔÇťGuard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who comes near that precious jewel. Unfortunately, nothing
    will preserve it but downright force. When you give up that force, you are ruined.” Patrick Henry
