When that which we think is, isn’t.

Disclaimer, I hunt, I believe in the right to keep and bear arms, I believe in the right to be free of unwarranted search and seizure, my home is my castle, collecting rainwater for my garden and orchard isn’t against the law, it is saving for a later day.

I also believe if you hurt a child, a woman, or a country of people who you intentionally kept uneducated for monetary and aristocratic reasons, that you should be hurt and healed multiple times until the scales are balanced. I also believe that if you are a hypocrite I no longer have to listen to you and that any words you proffer as advice, leadership, or caring from your last hypocritical point forward, are all lies and I don’t care what comes out of your sub-nasal blow-hole, because I quit listening one lie back.  That said I also believe we need the Erin Brockovich of the world, that the small man needs someone to keep out big industry, mom-and-pop shops are the life blood of America, and that everyone can use a hand up from time to time, and that growing your own food should be a standard of practice, not “those weird hippies at the end of the street”.

But when the liberal media and liberal actors tell us that shelters are bad, and eating animals are bad, and Sarah McLachlan guilt’s us into sending money in every time we hear her songs on the radio, and that it all might be a lie; I’m lost. You mind yours, I’ll mind mine, but don’t use sad images and guilt to get Legend and MonkeyHead to talk me into liberating multiple dogs from the local shelter, because “we have a big yard”.

It doesn’t have to be cold.

Since I am stationed 8 hours from home, I went to the movies last night, and saw Bad Grandpa, not the typical Johnny Knoxville shtick, but then you realize the kid is doing improve, its pretty good. That said, NOT FOR CHILDREN!!! Bubba is 18 she can do what she wants, but MonkeyHead is 10 and there is no way I or Legend would let her see this movie. As I left i was truly disappointing in my heart that parents chose this film as a bonding moment with there 6,7,8 and 10-year-old daughters..way to stay classy ‘Murica.

Every now and then we see that uplifting display of humanity that gives us hope, my post yesterday, gave me hope, the redneck justification system crushed my belief a little, then supposedly the Russian people brought it back again with the video below.

So here is your charge and on this Veterans day weekend, and it should be easy. Go thank someone for breathing, go help someone across the street, take a bowl of chili to the old man who lives on the corner, get out of your bubbles and teach your children, neighbors, and most importantly self, that good does exist in our world.
