A lesson from Iceland

Via Knuckledraggin' My Life Away

Secession signers should be arrested and tried for treason!

at least Herman R. Brannen of Siler City, NC 919-663-7191 thinks so.:)

We's waitin', big boy.......


The Chatham Record Newspaper in Chatham County NC has published a letter from a man in Siler City for a warrant and arrest of me (Nov 28, 2012 edition) chuckle,  for just asking Obama to allow North Carolina to peacefully secede.  Here’s my response to this individual:

I’m bewildered on the basis of Mr. Brannen’s letter to the Chatham Record that I be served a warrant for treason and arrested for my peaceful petition request for President Obama allowing NC to peacefully secede.

These matters appear to be of the mind-set of the…
National Socialist regime of 1933 in Germany of being arrested for speaking out against the state.  Last time I checked, my freedom of speech was still intact.
If memory serves me, it was President Obama that told Christians to quit clinging to their Guns and Bibles and the next potential generation of homegrown terrorist could be United States vets (in which I am one from the Vietnam era), including several generations of my family fighting in all the World Wars, including the Korean War.
Lests don’t be bigots here, this Republic was founded on secession from the British Empire.
This is not about my guy loosing in the election, I didn’t even like Romney.  It’s about the principles of what our Constitution was intended to be, that has been perverted by politicians and courts alike throughout the course of our short history as a free Republic.
Yet as Obama said, if you do not like my free speech “come after me”, We’ll sit down and have a sweet tea Summit, chuckle.
If I may quote one of our founding fathers, Franklin quoted us, “here’s your free Republic, good luck on keeping it”

Store Clerk Shoots Black in Self Defense – Now Black Community in Uproar

"Father", you raised a punk for a son. Filed under tough titty.



I hate talking about the race issue because there is only one race: the human race.  Yes, there are different ethnic groups within the human race.  Some have darker skin, others lighter skin.  Some have almond shaped eyes, others have more rounded shaped eyes.  Some ethnic groups are quite tall and others quite short.  But the bottom line is that we are all part of the same human race and need to treat each other accordingly and stop trying to use race as a tool of hatred.

Case in point is what happened to Alexander Calloway of Houston, Texas.  Calloway, 21 and two other young black men approached a Valero gas station at 3:30 am, only to find it closed and the doors locked.  Instead of leaving, Calloway and his friends banged on the front door and yelled at the clerk who was working inside.  An argument ensued through the locked glass door.

In an attempt to resolve the matter, the clerk unlocked the door and tried to end the argument when Calloway hit him in the face.  Seeing that the other two men had guns, the clerk drew his own gun out and shot his attacker in the stomach.  Calloway was rushed to a local fire station by his cousin.  He was then sent to the hospital where he is listed in critical condition.

Police watched the surveillance tape of the incident and ruled that the clerk shot in self-defense and that his actions were justified.  Of course, the clerk is not black, so even though he was the one who was first assaulted, Calloway’s father, along with a number in the local black community are all up in arms and want the clerk arrested and convicted.

I’ve seen this all too often across the country.  Had the clerk been black and Calloway white, there would be no protests and no calls for justice.  If anything, the white guy would be found guilty of a hate crime for punching a black guy in the face.  But in real life, it was a non-black guy who defended himself against three armed blacks and now the blacks are blaming him and demanding justice.  I noticed I didn’t hear his dad say anything about his son assaulting the clerk first or that his wonderful son bears any blame.  And now, the clerk is out of a job because of the community pressure and protest against the store.

When will it all end or will it end?  The saddest part in all of this is that it is the blacks that keep pouring fire on racial hatred.  They are the ones that keep hollering the most when it is one way and not the other.  Years ago I was worked the electric company as a meter reader and one of my routes took me into an all black area of town.  I can’t tell you have many times I was yelled at, had someone in my face threatening me or how many times I was eyewitness to drug abuse and other crimes.  But the incident that got to me the most was when a 3-4 year old boy walked up to me and called me a ‘m.f. whitey’ and told me to get my white ass out of his yard.

It became obvious to me that it isn’t society that causes blacks to become hateful and bitter, rather they are taught to be that way by their families.  They are taught to hate whites from the earliest of age and that hatred continually gets fueled by family and friends as they grow up.

It’s no different than the way Muslim youth are raised to hate Jews, Christians and Americans from when they are very young.  By the time they enter their teens, they’re already armed and ready to kill.
Proverbs 22:6 says:
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
Unfortunately, too many children today are not being trained in the ways of the Lord and many of the racial issues we see taking place testifies to this.

Gov’t Gives PA Restaurant a Choice: Give 10% Sunday Church Bulletin Discount to Atheists Too or Discontinue it Entirely

Via Don

 Prudhomme Lost Cajun Kitchen Must Offer Church Discount to Atheists

Do you recall the furor surrounding Prudhomme’s Lost Cajun Kitchen, a Pennsylvania-based restaurant, this past summer? The establishment has been offering a 10 percent discount for individuals who bring in a church bulletin on Sundays. Citing this action as discriminatory, John Wolff, a local atheist, filed a complaint with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission (PHRC). Now, the restaurant will be forced to offer discounts to any individual who brings in a pamphlet involving religious faith — including atheism.

To continue offering its discount, Prudhomme’s Lost Cajun Kitchen must now honor literature that comes from any religious institution, The Christian Post reports. This includes secular bulletins from the Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist activist non-profit, and faith-based documents pertaining to Judaism, Islam and other religions on Sundays.

City Attorney of Bankrupt San Bernardino: 'Lock Your Doors and Load Your Guns'

Via Don

 City attorney of San Bernardino Jim Penman had the audacity to tell the truth to the residents of bankrupt San Bernardino at a recent city council meeting. Taking stock of the fact that San Bernardino’s murder rate has jumped 50 percent over the last year, that the city has been cutting its police force by about 80 officers, and that there is no good news in sight, Penman stated, “lock your doors and load your guns.” He stands by the statement today, explaining, “you should say what you mean and mean what you say.”

Re: Interim Haywood County "Display Policy"

Dear Mr. Killian:

This is a follow up to our letter of 19 November where we critiqued the County's interim "Display Policy" and your proposed "Display Policy," as unconstitutional.

Without waiving or altering anything in our critique letter, this is to inform you, the County Commissioner's and Haywood County Employees that the North Carolina Sons of Confederate Veterans and the Western North Carolina Flaggers intend to respect and conform our conduct to the current interim "Display Policy" by displaying only "official government flags" as defined by NC General Statute 144-7(c)(4); being "The flag of any state or territory of the United States," ie. the flag of the State of Mississippi. An image of the Mississippi State flag is attached.

Out of respect to your proposed policy, we will not display more than 2 flags at the monument, and we will pick them up at the end of the business day. It is our request that flags placed on Friday afternoon or Saturday be allowed to remain undisturbed throughout the weekend.

Please instruct the County Maintainance staff that the display of the Mississippi State flag comports in every way with the interim "Display Policy" adopted by the Haywood County Board of Commissioners on August 20, 2012 and therefore should not be removed or molested in any way.

I am also authorized to say that the SCV and WNC Flaggers consider premature removal of these flags from County Monuments by private persons or state actors to constitute theft and monument desecration.

Please feel free to call if we need to discuss.

Descendant of free black Confederate awarded

Roundabout via Carl

 Katheryne Boone Hamilton shows off the Marion Joyner Watson award at the Tom Smith Camp of Sons of Confederate Veterans meeting on Monday. She is the second black person to receive the award honoring those who help preserve Confederate history.

The Tom Smith Camp of the Sons of Confederate Veterans on Monday presented its 18th annual Marion Joyner Watson award to Katheryne Boone Hamilton, the descendant of a free black man who served for the Confederacy in the Civil War.

Her great-grandfather, Jason Boone, was born and raised in the Skeetertown area of the old Nansemond County, the descendent of Joe Skeeter, for whom the area had been named.

Hamilton, a Holland-area native and retired nurse, discovered her ancestor’s history of service in the late ‘90s, when her sister “got bit by the genealogy research bug.” They found that Jason Boone and his brother, Anthony, both served for the Confederacy.

“Jason Boone was a member of a community of freeborn blacks that had been in existence for over 150 years,” Hamilton said, speaking of what she believes was her ancestor’s motive for fighting for the Confederacy. “He had a lot at stake. I’m sure he thought about what was going to happen to Skeetertown. (When he saw others going to war), he felt like he was obligated to march off as well. He had a home to protect as well as they did.”

Both brothers survived the war and lived to be old men. Jason Boone fathered 30 children in two different marriages.

After discovering her great-grandfather’s history of service, Hamilton read about Sons of Confederate Veterans member Lee Hart in a newspaper article and called him.

During Monday’s ceremony, Hart recalled that conversation fondly, saying they connected as if they had known each other for years.

“She is a true friend, someone who I have the utmost respect for,” said Hart, the 2001 recipient of the Marion Joyner Watson award. “We are honoring her, because she deserves it.”

Hart encouraged Hamilton to track down Jason Boone’s grave, and she found it in the Skeetertown area. It didn’t have a veteran’s stone, so Hart helped her acquire one. It was placed during a ceremony in 1999 with Confederate honors.

The event attracted national media publicity. Hamilton said many members of her family, including her children and grandchildren, have been supportive, but others would rather have forgotten about their relatives’ service to the Confederacy.

But Hamilton cannot stand by and allow the truth to be covered up or neglected, she said.

“There are some naysayers that say it never happened,” Hamilton said. “I tell people, ‘You don’t have to believe me. Just let this be a catalyst for you to do your own research.’ I don’t try to force it on anyone, but I simply suggest to do your own research.”

Since discovering his story, Hamilton has visited schools, churches and civic groups to talk about her great-grandfather’s service.

“It has been a 14-year odyssey of educating people,” she said. “Anytime I’m called upon, I step forth to try to share with them.”

Hamilton also is working on her United Daughters of the Confederacy application.

“Katheryne Boone Hamilton is, to put it simply, a very special lady,” said Rebecca Sharrett, president of the Suffolk UDC chapter.

Tom Smith Camp Commander Mike Pullen said estimates vary for the number of blacks who served in the Confederate Army. Some sources say 60,000, but “I’ve heard numbers higher than that,” he said.

The Marion Joyner Watson award is given by the Tom Smith Camp to honor someone who has worked to preserve the heritage of the Confederacy or honor veterans in Suffolk and the old Nansemond County.

The first award was given to Watson herself shortly before she died. Initially meant to be a one-time honor of her, the chapter decided to make it an annual affair after her death.

The chapter hasn’t shied away from giving the award to black recipients. Councilman Curtis Milteer Sr. received it in 2006 after signing a declaration to observe Confederate History Month in Suffolk during a term as mayor.

‘We Are About to Have a Tea Party Second Wave that Will Dwarf the First Wave’



Republicans will win the game of fiscal chicken with the President and foresees a huge new wave of the Tea Party.

In my interview (here at 31:30) I asked Norquist about his being the latest Obama and Obama Media diversion in what is supposed to be a serious discussion about the future

of taxation and spending. He brushed it off saying he's used to it. He also said the President is the least serious player in the legislative scrum.  He was heartened by the way Republican Senators were demanding today that any 'fiscal cliff' negotiations be on C-Span and any bill forthcoming should be on the web for at least a week was a "big break through; good stuff." In fact, he said, "I think we have a shot at [getting transparency] it; I think this is breaking well."

Norquist claims the President is poised to overplay his hand again,

He is overplaying his mandate, just as he did four years ago. Four years ago, he took a 70% support level and drove it down to below 50% in a matter of months by spending all that crazy money on stimulus and TARP II and other spending programs, because somehow he thought the American people had signed up for this. They hadn't. Now he thinks they've signed up for massive tax increases as well as spending increases and, I've got news for him, 86% of his ads were Romney's an idiot, Romney will give you cancer. He won a mandate not to be Romney, OK? Not the same thing as a mandate to tax and spend.

There's much more about the discussion that I'll put in a new post tomorrow, but consider what he said about the Tea Party involvement in this discussion of the 'fiscal cliff.'
We are about to have a Tea Party second wave that will dwarf the first wave and that is because while 'spend too much' brought the Tea Party into existence, we're about to walk into 'spend too much, regulate too much, and tax too much, all together. It's going to be a perfect storm of annoying government behavior, which is devastating to the economy, and I think the small business community which is particularly hit by Obama's tax increases are going to lead the fight bigger, stronger, tougher than the last Tea Party.

He's not the only one who believes this.

NC School Orders 6-year-old to Remove 'God' From Poem


A North Carolina community is embroiled in controversy after a school ordered a six-year-old girl to remove the word “God” from a poem that she was supposed to read during a Veteran’s Day ceremony.

The girl is a first-grader at West Marion Elementary School. She was supposed to read the poem during a school assembly marking Veteran’s Day. The poem honored her two grandfathers who had served during the Vietnam War.

“He prayed to God for peace, he prayed to God for strength,” the poem read.

A parent reportedly found out about the poem and expressed concern about mentioning the word God during a school event. The parent did not want the Almighty’s name mentioned anywhere in the program, according to one account.

“We wanted to make sure we were upholding the school district’s responsibility of separation of church and state from the Establishment Clause,” Supt. Gerri Martin told the McDowell News. 
Martin told the newspaper she made the decision in consultation with the school’s principal and vice principal.

“We jointly decided that we must err on the side of caution to prevent crossing the line on the Establishment Clause of the Constitution,” Kirkpatrick told the newspaper. “As a principal of a public school, I must put aside my personal religious beliefs and follow the law — which upholds that we have freedom of speech and freedom of religion, but that we, as public schools, cannot endorse one single religion over another.”

Fox News contacted the parents of the child but they declined to comment on the controversy.
The incident has sparked widespread concern across this western North Carolina community — called by many the buckle of the Bible Belt.

A Rhyme from the Desk of Honesty


Todd Reece

 There once was a Democrat, from Illinois, a grand total of less than a decade in elected service had he… Promise this promise that, ‘fundamentally change’ this great country was where it was at.

SO full of Hope and Change was he, he refused to get off the neck of people like me.
He seemed so perfect, so beautiful, so inclusive.
But the truth has been so elusive.

The media cooed at him from the first day on the scene
That is not their job and never has been.
Now he’s been reelected and serves for 4 more
the rest of the ride will surely be not a bore.

The fiscal cliff, including massive taxes
will make America wish for picks and axes.
Death tax, Health Care, Capital Gains increase too
We gotta get mo revenue!

One day not too far from now,
The media will hang their head in shame.
For there will be no one else to blame.

Communist Party USA celebrates Obama win

Via Billy


“An enormous people’s victory.” That’s how the political party of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels jubilantly celebrated the results of the 2012 presidential election in the United States, which will put Barack Obama in the White House for another four years.

The comment was in a report to the Communist Party USA national committee from the party’s chairman, Sam Webb.

“We meet on the heels of an enormous people’s victory. It was a long and bitterly contested battle in which the forces of inclusive democracy came out on top. The better angels of the American people spread their wings,” he wrote in the online report.

He said blacks, Hispanics and women worked together to defeat “racist … white people” and that it now is time for the Communist Party USA to work on the foundations established by Obama on issues regarding the environment, homosexual marriage and minorities to its potential.

Some Things Never Change

Via Cousin John



I had dinner in my favorite hometown restaurant recently, Parker’s Barbecue in Wilson, N.C., Now there are Parkers around in various North Carolina towns, but they are all a little different and I don’t know much about them. When I say my “favorite,” I am talking about the Wilson version.

A couple came in, paused to read the “Seat yourself” sign by the door, then found the table next to mine in the middle of the restaurant. One of the waiters, a teenage boy in a white apron and white paper cap, came over and asked if they needed to see a menu. Most people don’t, of course, because they know everything that is on it. The man laughed and said, “Yes, we do. It has been a long time since we’ve been here.”

The waiter answered, “Don’t worry. It hasn’t changed.”

I thought, you know, that’s is a great thing to hear. You  can’t say that about many things these days, but when it comes to Parker’s Barbecue it’s true. Parker’s is older than I am but it is still good. The same thing I ate at Parkers on visits to the tobacco market when I was six years old is the same thing they serve now, made and served the same way  and with the same flavor.

The tradition goes from the Carolina-style vinegar-based  barbecue and chicken, to the décor and furniture. The same knotty pine that has always adorned the walls is still here. There are some framed photos blown up to giant size on the wall, of round 1940s Fords and Plymouths parked in the driveways, like giant lima beans lined up in front of the same building façade you just strode up the walkway  into. Other photos center around the tobacco market that was once so influential in Wilson. For years - until the federal quota buyout in 2004 - Wilson was known as the World’s Greatest Tobacco Market. In its heyday great stars would perform in the town during the annual tobacco festival. Bing Crosby once performed in the town, and home-grown comedians like Mustard and Gravy got their start at the festival and then made it big in Hollywood, too.

All that is gone, now, but we still have Parkers.

In my estimation, it isn’t one particular food that makes Parkers so good. It is the way all the foods and flavors go together. Not that the other selections aren’t good, but almost everybody gets a chicken and barbecue combination with boiled potatoes, Brunswick stew, slaw and corn sticks. Every time you get it, it is the same – and it’s always good. The sweet tea, with just the right amount and consistency of ice, goes down smooth and sweet  as ice cream. The service is great. The boys in white aprons, usually 16 to 25 year old or so, whisk around the tables like electrons. By the time you settle in good, the door to the kitchen flies open and here come your plates on big, pewter colored  trays. There is never much waiting at Parkers.

The thought of ice cream reminds me of another association with Parkers. Once some tobacco industry folks held a meeting at Parkers and ate family style in one of the back rooms. But the guy throwing the shindig wanted  to spruce it up a bit, and make the dinner he was sponsoring just a little bit better than the last meeting. He asked the waiter to bring some deserts. The waiter said, “deserts?” like he had never heard the word before. Everybody laughed.

It’s not that desserts aren’t a good thing. But everybody knows Parkers doesn’t offer deserts. There a few candy bars at the counter, but no official desserts, not even banana pudding or ice cream. After all, dessert is just not needed. Parkers is perfect just the way it is.

Federal Land Seizure Act Resuscitating Itself from the Dead

“Looks like GOA defeated Goliath. Nice work.”
GOA warned you earlier this month about S. 3525, the Federal Land Seizure Act of 2012.
As you will remember, Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) -- who is “F” rated by Gun Owners of America -- is pushing this “hunting” bill which authorizes the Obama administration almost unlimited power to seize private lands for “environmental” purposes.
While it purports to the contrary, the bill would allow these seizures without the permission of the landowners for virtually any reason.
You guys delivered a crushing blow to this bill when you pressed your Senators to oppose it.  We won, and it appeared the bill was dead for the year.
As one highly placed office in the Senate told GOA:  “Looks like GOA defeated Goliath. Nice work.”
Sadly, in politics it’s often the case that a dead “Goliath,” like a Zombie, can come back to life -- which is why we need now to cut off its head.  S. 3525 could come up for a vote as early as Today.
