Better to Die in the Last Ditch
Women of the Confederacy by Augustus Lukeman, located on the grounds of the North Carolina State Capitol, Raleigh, North Carolina, USA. Monument dedicated on June 10, 1914. 

Of the war and its end in the submission and occupation of the American South, those enduring the degradation vowed that “These things will not stay forgotten . . . daughters and Veterans can not afford to be silent about the painful past.  Let our descendants have a truthful account of that awful time as far as written words can give it.”  The fine source below can be obtained from
Bernhard Thuersam, Chairman
North Carolina War Between the States Sesquicentennial Commission
"Unsurpassed Valor, Courage and Devotion to Liberty"
"The Official Website of the North Carolina WBTS Sesquicentennial"

Better to Die in the Last Ditch

“Defeated, oppressed, humiliated, poverty-stricken, disenfranchised, taxed to pay the war debt, while too poor to support ourselves, deprived of opportunity politically, and handicapped by pride and the bitterness of rebellion against our condition, the South was a pitiable spectacle – and her rise from that condition to the splendid attainments of today is a crown of honor she deserves because she has won it by overcoming obstacles which at first seemed insurmountable.” 

Dr. Henry Bahnson, in his speech to Confederate veterans, had this to say about Confederate women: 

“We can speak in unstilted praise of the best and greatest glory of the South – the women of the war.  Their soft voices inspired us, their prayers followed us and shielded us from temptation and harm. We witnessed their Spartan courage and self-sacrifice in every stage of the war. We saw them send their husbands and their fathers, their brothers and their sons and their sweethearts, to the front, tempering their joy in the hour of triumph, cheering and comforting them in the days of despair and disaster.  

Freely they gave of their abundance, and gladly endured privation and direct poverty that the men in the field might be clothed and fed.  Their days of unaccustomed toil were saddened with anxious suspense, and the lonely, prayerful vigils of the night afforded no rest. 

They nursed the sick and wounded; they soothed the dying; and in the last stages of the war when all was lost but honor, were made to marvel at their saintly spirit of martyrdom standing as it were almost neck deep in the desolation around tem, bravely facing their fate, while the light of heaven illuminated their divinely beautiful countenances.” 

Catherine DeRosset Meares [of Wilmington] remarked: “The sense of captivity, of subjugation . . . 
[was] so galling that I cannot see how a manly spirit could submit to it . . . Oh, it is such degradation to see [our] young men yield voluntary submission to these rascally Yankees. Better to stand on the last plank and die in the last ditch.”

A Visit to Seven Springs, North Carolina


On Saturday, October 19th, I traveled to Seven Springs, North Carolina at the invitation of the gentlemen of The Confederate States Armory, Kenansville Camp #2157 SCV.  They were meeting to raise a new 10x15 battle flag at the Whitehall Confederate Monument.

 The monument, dedicated in 2008, was erected in memory of the 13 men who died in the Battle of Whitehall.  My friend, Brock Townsend had encouraged me to look on the back for his grandfather's quote.  I was not disappointed: 

"I say we cannot know your suffering, but this we do know; We love and honour you, veterans, and are justly proud of the heritage you have given us. Just so long as warm blood flows in the veins of man, so long will the words 'Confederate Veteran' cause that blood to tingle with glorious pride, and, if there be one among us, born in our glorious Southland who is not so thrilled, every drop of stagnant blood proclaims him bastard to the South-a coward to all the world."

Census Bureau: Means-Tested Gov't Benefit Recipients Outnumber Full-Time Year-Round Workers
 Yeah, right.

Americans who were recipients of means-tested government benefits in 2011 outnumbered year-round full-time workers, according to data released this month by the Census Bureau.

They also out-numbered the total population of the Philippines.

There were 108,592,000 people in the United States in the fourth quarter of 2011 who were recipients of one or more means-tested government benefit programs, the Census Bureau said in data released this week. Meanwhile, according to the Census Bureau, there were 101,716,000 people who worked full-time year round in 2011. That included both private-sector and government workers.

That means there were about 1.07 people getting some form of means-tested government benefit for every 1 person working full-time year round.

Peter Brimelow writes: This is an adaptation of a talk I recently gave to a Dissident Right dinner club in New York City. Several friends of were in the audience.

Around Easter of 1980, I was in Paris trying to persuade my first wife, whom some of you knew, to marry me. I thought that, in the interests of full disclosure, I ought to tell her everything. So I said, look, I’m involved in an anti-Communist faction in journalism and we’re going to lose. I think there’s a real serious possibility that we’re all going to end up in a Gulag.

And, besides that, it’s crippling to our careers. I’d been approached by the CBC [Canadian Broadcasting Corporation] to do on-camera reports about business. I could have been Lou Dobbs! [Laughter] But when they heard I’d written anti-Communist stuff, they said they couldn’t possibly hire an anti-communist—even though what I would have been covering was entirely non-political.
Maggy was a Canadian and wasn’t particularly political. She listened to this and said she’d not thought about it before, but, now that I’d explained it, she could see it was true.

So, she asked with female practicality, why didn’t I change sides?

I usually tell this sort of story to illustrate that miracles do happen. Nobody—nobody—expected the Soviet Union to collapse. We, those of us that grew up in the 1950s and earlier, really did think in the 1970s that there was a very good chance the Soviet Union would prevail. Whittaker Chambers was convinced he was joining the losing side when he renounced communism in 1938.

But in fact, later in 1980, Ronald Reagan was elected president. And by 1991, the Soviet Union had collapsed.

NC: Gun rights group threatens to sue Raleigh over outdated park signs


North Carolina’s most vocal gun rights group is threatening to sue Raleigh if it doesn’t update signs in city parks that tell visitors firearms aren’t allowed.

Grass Roots North Carolina sent a letter to the Raleigh City Council this week, requesting an update to the signs now that state law allows concealed-carry permit holders to bring guns to playgrounds, greenways and college campuses.

In an email, Raleigh parks director Diane Sauer told the group it would be too expensive to replace all signs in the city’s 100-plus parks – especially because state lawmakers might change the rules again.

“Due to costs associated with and the potential of this coming up again, we are not going to replace all signs at once,” Sauer wrote to a Grass Roots member. “As signs are replaced (age or damage) or new signs are added, we will include updated information.”

Grass Roots North Carolina president Paul Valone says he doesn’t buy that argument.

“I find that disingenuous,” Valone said. “It’s not too expensive – you don’t have to replace them or anything, just take them down.”

Muslim Pirates Kidnap 2 US Sailors Off Coast of Nigeria

Pirates kidnap U.S. sailors off Nigeria’s coast 

Pirates attacked an oil supply vessel off the Nigerian coast and kidnapped the captain and chief engineer, both United States citizens, an American defense official and security sources said on Thursday.

Reuters reports that pirate attacks off Nigeria’s coast have jumped by a third this year as ships passing through West Africa’s Gulf of Guinea, a major commodities route, have come under threat from gangs wanting to snatch cargoes and crews.

The U.S flagged, C-Retriever, a 222-foot (67 meter) vessel owned by U.S. marine transport group Edison Chouest Offshore, was attacked early Wednesday, the United Kingdom-based security firm AKE and two security sources said.

Students Claim Econ Department is Too Free Market [!]

Economics Students Aim to Tear Up Free-Market Syllabus,” reads the headline in The Guardian. Some excerpts:
A growing band of university students are plotting a quiet revolution against orthodox free-market teaching, arguing that alternative ways of thinking have been pushed to the margins.
Economics undergraduates at the University of Manchester have formed the Post-Crash Economics Society, which they hope will be copied by universities across the country.
The organisers criticise university courses for doing little to explain why economists failed to warn about the global financial crisis and for having too heavy a focus on training students for City jobs.
Yet no curiosity at all about the Austrian School of economics, many of whose economists did predict the crisis, and who are far more free market than the vast majority of the neoclassicals who teach them.

This Court Ruling Could Bring Obamacare Down

The Department of Justice didn’t get their way when a federal judge decided not to throw out a case against Obamacare. While U.S. District Judge Paul Friedman denied a temporary injunction that would have prohibited the IRS from issuing Obamacare subsidies to states that opted out of setting up their own exchanges, he will allow the lawsuit to proceed. The subsidies will be used to entice people to enroll through an Obamacare exchange. That is, if they can get through to the website in the first place.

We hear liberals drone on all the time about how Obamacare is the “law of the land,” and that tea partiers need to get over it, because Obama was elected and re-elected on the issue of Obamacare, and that it was passed by the Congress and upheld by the Supreme Court.

Well, if it’s the “law of the land,” then why does the Obama administration not have to follow it? There are currently 36 states which decided not to set up their own exchanges. Only 14 have done so. According to this “law of the land,” the IRS is not allowed to pay out subsidies to those 36 states. They can only issue subsidies to the 14. These subsidies are in violation of section 1311 of the [un]Affordable Care Act:

First Americans came from Europe, NOT Asia.

Via Lone Voice


 America was first discovered by Stone Age hunters from Europe, according to new archaeological evidence.

Across six locations on the U.S. east coast, several dozen stone tools have been found.

After close analysis it was discovered that they were between 19,000 and 26,000 years old and were a European-style of tool.

The discovery suggests that the owners of the tools arrived 10,000 years before the ancestors of the American Indians set foot in the New World, reported The Independent.

Finding the tools is being heralded as one of the most important archaeological breakthroughs for several decades.

Archaeologists are hopeful that they will add another dimension to understanding the spread of humans across the world.

Three of the sites were discovered by archaeologist Dr Darrin Lowery of the University of Delaware, while another one is in Pennsylvania and a fifth site is in Virginia.

How To Opt Out of ObamaCare Without Paying the Fine


Less than two-hours ago, I submitted a revised W-4 form to our payroll department. My goal is to avoid being  in a position where at the end of next year I am owed a refund from the federal government. As an act of civil disobedience, I am refusing to purchase health insurance. This means that I am subject to a tax/fine of 1% of my income (2% the following year, 2.5% thereafter). But the beautiful thing is that unless I am owed a tax refund, the government will never get any of that money.

NC: Let Obamacare Take Effect and Die

After forcing a government shutdown to delay Obamacare implementation, there is now fresh sentiment among House Republicans to let the program take effect.

With reports of frustration nationwide as millions try to apply for coverage through, this "don't-delay" sentiment is coming from seasoned Republican members of the House.

"We may have made a tactical error by linking the defunding or delaying of Obamacare to the continuing resolution and the debt-ceiling extension bills," Republican Rep. Howard Coble of North Carolina told Newsmax.

"Perhaps a better tactic would have been to allow Obamacare to go into effect, and as we are witnessing now, then collapse from its own dead weight," said Coble, a congressman since 1985. "The Obama administration can no longer blame the disastrous rollout of the poorly named Affordable Care Act on just some computer glitches."

Obamacare Operator Fired for Talking to Hannity on Radio

 Be a good range target as it's not worth much more.

An Obamacare operator was fired after she blurted out that no one liked the new health insurance program during a live interview with conservative radio host Sean Hannity, it was reported Thursday.

"'We can’t have this type of stuff going on here, so we have to release you,'" Erling Davis of Panama City, Fla., quoted one human resources official telling her the morning after her Monday interview with Hannity, according to Real Clear Politics, which posted a partial transcript.

“They said that no contact with the media. No type of media whatsoever. We’re not allowed to do that at that company.”

But Davis told Hannity she’d never heard that directive during her training for the job, which started Sept. 23.

“I did not hear anything about that,” she said. “There were so many of us in a big group, you can only talk so loud.”

Still, Davis said she felt bad about the exchange with Hannity afterward.

“I’m just out here tryin’ to help everybody,” she said, according to the transcript. “[S]ome people are like, ‘Oh, you knew you shouldn’t have said that!’ And I’m just like, OK … I kinda felt bad about it. My gosh, I got fired.”

Hannity – who offered to pick up her $26,000 annual salary and help her find a new job – praised Davis for her calm under fire during the initial live interview.

Blaine Richardson’s prepared remarks for the Penobscot County Republican Meeting

Via Chuck

Do I have permission for straight talk tonight?  Because I have this other version I can do.  Are you sure?

About a year back the Republican Party was dealt a major set back with election losses.  We were told by the media,  including many Republican and allegedly “conservative” commentators, as well as a report paid for from the National Republican Party that the party, we here, needed to do a better job appealing to various “minority” lobbies, and move away from conservative, or Tea Party positions.

I found it odd, not that the Mainstream Media would offer Republicans terrible advice, but just how ridiculous the advice was. The Republican Party had electoral success in 2010, but not in 2012, after all.

What happened?  The top of the ticket featured two TARP Wall Street bailout supporters; two Amnesty supporters; two supporters of Obama’s policy to wage war indefinitely inAfghanistan.  In the third Presidential debate, Mitt Romney endorsed Obama’s policy of working with radical jihadist elements in Egypt, Libya and now Syria.

Let me talk about Syria just for a moment. The present regime protects a small, minority Christian population. In a Syrian church, there is to this day, the earliest known inscription regarding the man who you might know as Saint George, the one who slew the dragon a tale your father or mother might have told you as a child; the patron saint of England. Ask yourself, will this church survive if the rebels take over?

Do we really need to ask ourselves, in this room, why Romney lost?

Picture the scene. It is 1973 and Laurence Olivier, then widely regarded as the greatest actor in the English speaking world, has just finished recording the introduction to the first of 26 episodes of The World At War, which I am producing.

It’s been a long day, and Olivier, tired and somewhat unwell, clearly regards his work as done. He pushes back his chair, slides his red braces back on to his shoulders and wearily gets to his feet. 

The first recording sessions of the narration had been tricky, even tense. Olivier was exhausted by his recent theatre work.

How Badly Will ObamaCare Screw You? Answers Here!


Well well lookie what the cat dragged in.

That's a link to the unsubsidized data dump -- all 78,437 records -- for each county and State under the Obamacare exchange program.  I can verify that for at least my state and county the table is correct, since you can now look it up on without creating an account first (which I am not about to do.)

There are several very interesting statistical facts that come from this.

First, if you're "27", the average premium is $266.20/month or $3,194.40 per year.  How many 27 year olds have an extra $3,200 to spend on this?  Remember, this is the price that virtually every uninsured 27 year old must be willing -- and able -- to cough up in order to prevent the model this system is predicated on from collapsing.

If those 27 year olds don't show up, and they won't, then the system collapses instantly.  If they do show up because the government threatens them with fines the economy collapses as $3,200 a year exceeds the average 27 year old's disposable personal income after mandatory expenses (e.g. food, shelter, etc.)  Remember, there are always exceptions but these premiums are averages and over large pools of people the statistical averages are what matters -- not the ends of the barbell.

It gets better.  The "average" 50 year old premium, again, for single coverage, is $452.87, or $5,434.44/year.  How many 50 year olds will find that attractive compared against what they're paying now?  Probably more of them, especially if they're already sick.  But how about the healthy ones?
