In the Christian liturgy there's a few lines where the priest is giving instructions to guards: "guard the doors," "the guards, the guards..." I don't know much about the ancient practice respecting posting guards in front of churches, but it existed and maybe we should bring it back. I think it would be kind of cool too just to have another little duty like that that people (guys especially) can do to help look after the church. It shows that you're a community and you look out for each other.
It does... but remember y'all, "there will be many false prophets..." and "I know neither the day nor the hour," only God the Father knows.
Look out for your soul, keep your head on a swivel, MAGA. And if it takes you away from Jesus, spit it out.
Speckled Hen if you can get it, and... a boiled pudding or something lol
I took great care when rifling this poem. It's a really under-utilized poetic device, but I think it works really well.
May all your sticks go boom.
I have a 1766 (repro) Charleville flintlock named Antoine.
I sleep next to Antoine every night.
He doesn't always hit the spot (smoothbore, y'know), but when he does...
*p.s. if you want one, Pedersoli is your company. And get French amber flints.
I suddenly want to buy everyone a gun.
This kind of thing will be more important in places where taxes already get funneled like candy to baby killing and the like. Problem is no one will do it unless they feel they have some chance of succeeding. That means organization. So first we'd need literature explaining how to do all this, and secondly we'd need a support group, preferably with lawyers and militia, to look out for people.
This isn't my area per se but since you're passionate about this approach those are some goals to start working on. Don't just keyboard commando, work on it if you can. People will trickle in.
This, exactly this. They gerrymandered by getting the districts re-drawn by some guy from California, they got their new government voted in, and now people with guns are getting pissed. They're trying to preserve their power by making it easier to persecute people trying to preserve their rights.
So while the legislature is busy doing that, let's start organizing local militias. It's a great American tradition, it's good for strengthening your community, and it will scare the politicians shitless.
If you have teenage kids with free time, have them literally go door-to-door and ask neighbors and friends to join your militia group over the weekend. Get together for a training day where you teach people about weapons and have a barbecue with the kids and family and everything. Build, build, build!!!
Intimidating who? Disordering what?
Come on. We all know what this is about.
Guy in NY got Red Flag'd last night. Some people raised a shitstorm on the internet, and actually drove to try and help him, and people's posts started disappearing off 4chan and people were having social media accts locked, etc. Supposedly the cops killed the guy's cell service too. That's what it looks like anyway.
Nothing ever completely gets rid of corruption. Even right after the Revolution politicians (including Washington himself!) were already working overtime to centralize federal power and make government bureaucrats untouchable. They had some good motives at the time, but they took it too far and the Constitution consequently lacks a lot of the more rigorous safeguards against tyranny that many in the Founding Generation fought and died in hopes of securing.
Yet, even the imperfect document we ended up with is better than literally anything anywhere else on the planet.
Likewise, wars have a way of sweeping decent people into horrible, horrible straits, dividing people on all the wrong lines, and causing immeasurable suffering. Yet sometimes war must be waged.
I think there's a good chance something is coming, and must be. But understand that you're not talking about a panacaea that will solve all the nation's problems, you're talking about taking a HUGE risk, including drawing the attention of other nations who might have an interest in taking advantage of such a fight (like China for instance) to degrade or even conquer part or all of the US, overtly or covertly (remember China likes to control through economic entanglement and politics, not military if they can afford it).
And, if you fight, and then win, the winners will immediately start bickering about something else, and you will have to keep the new arrangement from immediately descending into a string of coups, murders, and terror (read: French Revolution, or literally any South American dictatorship).
Part of what made 1776 different from basically any other revolution ever, and perhaps any other war ever, was that the Founders thought everything through and did a lot of level-headed debating way before they took action. Even the hot-headed guys in the streets throwing tea off ships were way more literate than their European counterparts. The failure of modern American education makes me worry that a modern attempt to re-take our liberties by force will end in a dictatorship because people today have forgotten how to really think, and will be too easily tempted to do short-sighted things.
Best thing to do, keep your powder dry, but also connect with your neighbors, build community, and EDUCATE: not about politics, but about logic, grammar and rhetoric. Teach Greek philosophy, and the Bible. That's what our Founders grew up on. And without that sense of community, you will not win either a cultural war or a hot one. Nobody talks to their neighbors anymore. So we are left trying to find "friends" on twitter instead and then when shit goes down, we get shut down. Start militia groups, but don't make it about machismo and don't wear black, copy what the Founders did and make it about community, get your whole neighborhood involved with their kids and everything and have militia barbecues and such along with weapons training. That's how Americans are supposed to be with their guns: intimate and comfortable. Re-build the fabric that's been shredded by marxism, globalism, and nihilism. We need it no matter what.
Seriously. Somebody posted a big thing on reddit with regular updates, hoping it doesn't disappear: https://www.reddit.com/r/progun/comments/e0rel9/afghanistan_veteran_in_new_york_currently_has/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share
where you seeing that? I'm seeing a lot of obfuscation, people reporting convos getting scrubbed from 4chan left and right, some reports saying there's still something going down, some claiming it's over, others saying people's social media accounts have been hacked, taken down, etc. to shut them up.
NO, it is not over, local news is saying it is but doesn't look like it. I posted one response to SupremeSpez but there are lots more.
News is bullshit, it is NOT OVER: https://twitter.com/whiskeynrebel/status/1198475625985495046
