Edgy

A businessman in the Oval Office encourages me.  It is edgy in the sense of having a bold, provocative, or unconventional quality.  No doubt it's also the common definition as well ie:  nervousness.

I come from a long line of businesspeople and military.  Some of it has rubbed off at least to the point where I have business sense even in artistic endeavors.

Now there are many dishonest businesspeople.  Of course.  Just as there are in every walk of life.  They take a short cut.  No muss no fuss?  Hardly.  But it becomes easier the more it's done.

Wealth is good or bad, depending on how it is acquired and used.

Some just acquire through underhanded ways.  They hoard and make it look as though they share.

Others are above board and make their wealth work for them.  One way is to use it to help people help themselves.  No not a gimme help themselves.  There's enough of that. Helping people heal themselves by giving them opportunities to be self reliant.

We will see what develops between now and the end of February.

Give and take, analysis, resources.

Edgy no?

Poor

Certainly a lot of talk and continued two way exploitation.  Poverty.  Institutionalized partly due to that nit LBJ etal.  It's become an orgy of theft and dependence.

I believe with Trump, we have a catalyst to give people opportunities of which they have been robbed for decades.  He's already undoing a great deal of weblike miasma with much more to go.  No wonder the collectivists and their globalist masters have their knickers in a knot.  Freedom, self determination, a real chance to succeed, are in the offing.

I'm not going to go on about it.  The perfidy is well documented.

On the tail of MLK Day and Black History Month looming, content of character is on my mind.

My Mom grew up poor during the Depression.  They did the best they could and never
starved. Clothes were saved and passed down, everything from soap to soup was used. Also, she often quoted an oft stated sentiment from those days.  ''If you are poor, you can at least be clean.''

There is real pride, self worth and hope/determination.  This is shared by all colors.  It's not limited to any group.  All are welcome.

Now, it's not a 'know your place' thing.  On the contrary, it is maintenance.  Gotta take care of yourself.  There is no gimme attitude.  Well, there wasn't.

People made do but hoped for more.

I'm not a cult of personality guy for anyone.  But, with Trump we can all take the bull by the horns.  It is anticollectivism time.

We can maintain such as feeding folks so they can think straight then feed themselves.  All we need is for government to get out of the charity business.

If we are truly getting back to having the power as in Constitutional Republic, we have that power within to lift ourselves and work with others too.

It may be a seemingly eternal way of life.  We shall see.

Stay clean.

Chopsticks

Not chapstick, though it's winter here and some are chaffing with the Trump win.

Chopsticks are the traditional utensils in China and other Oriental environs.

It takes some dexterous skill, but they can be used with aplomb.  China's like that.

I urge people to study China's history.  There are parallels with the West and differences too.  Cultural differences are interesting but I'll let you research.  They have contributed much wherever they go and many things we take for granted had origins in China.

China has had designs on conquering the world for millennia.  The Red Chinese are no exception.  It is a combination of military, economic and social subversion.

All collectivism leads to control. 

We have flavors of communism with some mixed with fascism such as Red China.  There is Islamic supremacism which masks itself in religion.  The others proclaim the state as god.

All relinquish individuality, with few in charge.  They also mask something else.

There are a very few, some string pullers, but several who remain in the shadows.  Old families old money.

Without using labels (call them what you want), its all about a hierarchy or lowerarchy and without going into detail, it is also spiritual.  I'll deal with that soon.

So study it all.  People are good or evil or straddling.  Many worldwide crave Freedom.

And they obviously won't let it be generally known, but Communist China is wracked with little revolts.

As a result, they crack down, including mobile executions.

We all know where that eventually leads, though with our Chinese world neighbors, it's a very winding road.

Brushfires of Freedom in the minds of men and women will not be put out.

Sure it's a hit and miss.  But Freedom is rising worldwide.

We are on the verge of the most crucial time in history.

Regardless, there are two kinds of people; those who seek Freedom and those who prefer to be told what to do.

Learn to use chopsticks, new skills and sew seeds of Liberty where you can.

Passionate Calm

Wowee.  That big ole hourglass got turned over and so has the world.

President Trump.  What a pleasure to have an actual president instead of a pretender, an occupier who was a former 'community organizer'.  I like the way Joel Gilbert referred to him.  Agitator is a better application.  It is an activity steeped in Marxism, meant to stir up and unbind the Republic.  Gilbert said he believes the occupier didn't think of himself as a president.  The occupier, good little Marxist that he is, loathes the Republic and all its appellations.  Not Trump.

Thank god for a businessman instead of a lawyer/politician.  Antimarxist doesn't even cover it.  But it's a good start.

Of course, power is never surrendered easily.  The collectivists are using their usual tricks to try and derail Freedom.  So far it's failing but they will never give up.  Neither will Trump nor those of us working to Restore the Republic.  I always say we fight an enemy that never sleeps so we must learn to sleep less.

I also boil down our enemies to useful idiots, true believers and string pullers.  A trifle oversimplified perhaps but nonetheless true.

The useful idiots have been unleashed in typical collectivist fashion. From outright rioting to jabbering sing song slogans, crowding people and assault (mostly by paid thugs), under the guise of 'protest', they try to hide behind free speech.  well, that ends when marches and slogans become mayhem and assault.

The stupidity of the useful idiots is legion.  They barely spout and spew hate like hating white men etc.  When questioned, some just display the middle finger (a popular collectivist retort) or they, if seeming to listen, are shooed away by handlers aka true believers.

The true believers, in league with the thugs, attempt to either assault verbally or physically, anyone opposed to them, including passersby.

Self defense is called for when they try this.  Go to oathkeepers.org for articles on counter methods.

One tip, don't take the bait, don't rise to the occasion.  Be watchful, wary and try to evade unless close observation is called for.  Be with others and watch each other's backs.

The socalled MSM try to play down these activities.  They try to make Freedom minded people take the blame.  Indeed, these days what was called alternative is the reliable source, instead of collectivist shills.  Don't rise to their bait either.  If interviewed, try to phrase things so the cannot be misquoted, unless they censor.

Cover yourself every way possible.

These 'people' are predictable but insidious

Be passionate.  Stay calm and ride the storm which Freedom brings when fighting tyranny.

Spinning Grains

Round and round they go.  They swirl and spin and almost seems to linger as the last grans of sand fall into the bottom of the hourglass.  Hours minutes seconds left.  It's over.

Like the grains, I have many last minute thoughts about many things.  Personal social national all come tumbling down.

I have writing to sell/market.  My other artful efforts are not far behind.

Pride and concern for my kids and what peaks and valleys come next.

Real new hope for the Republic, we hope -s-.

Why historically do people almost always wait to act when things keep getting bad to the point of destruction?

I'm sorry people are gone both famous and personal I hope to someone.  Even the lonely may be missed.  But I believe we live on, transition.

I spread the word of Freedom one to one, brushfires of Liberty in our minds.

Sunrise over the mountains as Crockett and his friends, red and white have seen.

Checking that I have plenty of grains of salt.

Not over nor under doing.

Biding time.

Taking action.

Not living in the past, remembering.

Not haunted by the past, lessons learned.

Planning not just dreaming.

Promises kept.

Thoughts just keep coming like the sand.

Yet it's not really over.  Soon the glass gets upturned.

There is no pause, just a breath as I prepare to leap into 2017.

See you all in the future now.

Preen Obscene

My apologies to birds.  It is only the human analogy which comes to mind. 

There is a lot of preening on several levels.  8 years of such from the Oval Office.  So many liberal Bertha Better'n Yous thinking they are above us.  Perhaps they should dislodge head from posterior.  It wouldn't help.  To borrow an election label, they are irredeemable -s- (borrowed from Alinsky).

Susan Olsen was attacked by such a preener.  He thinks he's succeeded and is very selfcongratulatory.  Fame is fleeting rosebud.

These prigs are not necessarily stupid.  They hunt, calculate and attack.  Watch out for hot buttons.  Look at the occupier fomenting war with Russia and promoting division re Israel.  Same answer as above.

The downside for them is their narcissism gives them notice indeed.  We are watching.  We are calculating.  We are countering.  And best of all, we are proactively deflating, eye to eye.

The feathers are being plucked slowly.  It will increase. 

Soon it will be bumpy skin and a bumpier road for our enemies, foreign and domestic.

So if you think this is just hot air, I guess you enemies can go pluck yourselves -s-.

Negan

Here we go, he said with a s*** eating grin.  Another psychopath from the realm of The Walking Dead.  Negan is the latest antagonist.

He has a cocky actually megalomaniacal attitude.  That grin is part of his trademark along with the barbed wire encrusted bat called Lucille. Oh he likes his followers in there gang called the Saviors to kneel with head lowered as he passes.  Sounds almost like a certain defeated presidential candidate lol.  Different kettle of fish than the Governor.  More vicious and far ranging.

That's it for character analysis except he rules by intimidation and fear outright.  It's an old method.

Ok.  There is a lot of buzz about this amongst WD fans.  Fine.  I'm all for fandom/entertainment/sports and the like.  My only caveat is not to let it distract you, especially now in our turbulent times..  I'll let the devotees thrash out all the whys and wherefores.

Me?  I usually wait til the end of a season and watch as many eps as I like at a time w/o commercials.

So what's the deal with this post?  Just a passing observance. 

The world created for the show is vicious, dog eat or zombie eat) dog.  Actually our roving band of protagonists have eaten dogs.  Supplies are short. 

There are/have been roving bands and 'settlements' pop up.  A few good guys.  Mostly not.  May or may not be the case.  For something less Hollywoody try Matt Bracken's books.

Everytime, guns/weapons are forbidden among most of the people and our heroes or whatever always have to surrender their guns.  Noone for instance in Alexandria (please research for yourselves) carries them even apparently after a zombie breach.  They are kept in an armory, with a listed inventory.

Negan just takes them all, leaving Rick etal disarmed save for bladed weapons.

I didn't write the show, and I'm not getting into a big mishmash.  This is again just my 2 cents.

Everybody should have been as trained as possible.  Everyone should have at least one long gun and a sidearm.  They should also have hidden guns and NOT on a dam list.  Oh well.

As for the Saviors, they are a biker gang for all intents and purposes.  They mostly take by murder and threat.  The gang is large and regionally farflung.  There are satellite posts, several manned and well armed.  There is a main base or 'Sanctuary.

My other thought.  Get to know your enemy as well as possible.  All aspects and details are important.  Learn how they function, hierarchy etc. 

Negan is only flesh and blood.  Figure it out.

Btw, he was apparently a high school gym coach and used car salesman pre bad times, fwiw.  Maybe, like the Governor he was triggered -s- by the meltdown.

The show doubtless will stretch out the drama.  Fine.  It's a show.  Good actors and special effects.

Ok, so take him.

Real life and fiction crisscross.  Make sure you know the difference.
