Sad Beyond Comprehension

Image result for nc Patcon

My GGG Grandfather built Dixieland, a Georgian style in 1790 and a Federal style in 1810.  We lost it after the War in 1866 and I was fortunate to be able to return it to the family in 1992. Today it was lost again.

The worst decision I've ever made, bar none 


I was listening to a Confederate podcast and the speaker
said he had a generational home in the Shenandoah Valley,
near the river, that if he lost that home it would be like
losing a family member. So your pain and suffering is
realistic. Dixieland is you and you are Dixieland.
We don't live in the past, the past lives in us. Basically,
you are haunted and hopefully the suffering will degrade
in time. Who would have ever thought.

And how can men die better

For the ashes of his fathers
And the temples of his gods.”

Hi, Brock. Just wanted to check-in on how you are doing.
Are you still monitoring the depressing news? There is lots
I would like to ask but will settle with you are Okay.
Your website is sadly missed as being one of the best on the web.
Take care and keep the faith as you will not be undone.


Brock, I never comment but I must say this. It is not merely good to forgive yourself, it is an absolute obligation. You didn't abandon Dixieland, rather the Lord G-d simply transferred it from your loving care into the care of another. It wasn't your failure, rather it was His Will. Therefore, you MUST forgive yourself, not only for your sake, but for His sake. Bless you my dear Brother.

May peace be upon you friend and brother. My best to you and your family and my deepest sympathies, but in this war that we call life, we cannot win every battle.Hold your head high for the fight that you have fought. Truly my best regards, Jay

Hey Brock, It's Good to see that you are still commenting at least. I too am on a Long March back to Normalcy, of a New Sort. Long Pneumonia, good days and bad days blend in my memory. I pray for your speedy recovery, Sir. You are an Iconic Figure, and a Voice heard around the World. Keep the Faith and Stay Strong My Friend.

Our dear Townsend, God bless you, good sir. You have been a blessing to many, even myself.

One less tear today

Mr Townsend, I just want to assure you that we love this house and we will take good care of it. We’re so grateful that you took such good care of the home so that our family can enjoy it, especially our 2 year old. I hope you enjoy your new home.

You are also welcome to visit anytime.

Tears, Idle Tears by Alfred Lord Tennyson 

Crossing the Bar

Sunset and evening star,
      And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
      When I put out to sea,

   But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
      Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
      Turns again home.

   Twilight and evening bell,
      And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
      When I embark;

   For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
      The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
      When I have crost the bar. 

********************

I am doing good for my age, turning 87 tomorrow, hopefully.  

I am so sorry to learn of you having another operation, this one for on your intestines.  I certainly pray for a full recovery and return to the health you had prior to going to Mexico.   I saw on your site that you recently sold Dixieland.  I know that must have been tough for you to depart the family treasure.  Hopefully, the new owners will take care of the home and preserve it, the way you did.  I have fond memories of several Sundays at Dixieland for our reunions and luncheons.  Thank you for opening up your home for those occasions.

Take care, Colby

  2. That's sad. I was born in the Illinois Corn Belt and today we've lost entire villages to Corporate farms. There are towns back there today where the cemeteries have larger populations than the neighboring communities. There's nothing left but corn, meth, and graveyards.

      Brock, is that elderly man who helped you replace the
      rotted wood on your home still around? Saw a pic of
      him a few times and seemed to be a good friend.
      Wishing you a pleasant Labor Day and hope your

    2. Seeing as you asked...
      When there is a hostile group of people within a society who have openly declared that another group within that same society is their enemy and that their unilateral declaration gives them the authority to kill you and destroy your way of life and there is no agency of the government created by that society as a whole that they have not corrupted to their purposes that is willing to intervene, what choice do you have but to defend yourself?

      There are four important and immutable lessons of history that these leftist would have the world ignore.

      1. Public opinion on issues is a pendulum and must be allowed to freely swing back and forth in it's natural arc. It's only restraints being common recognition of equal rights to personal self-direction and reasonable laws created in the course of open and public debate.

      But when one side has seized that pendulum in defiance of those restraints and pulls it too far in it's desired direction and ignores it's natural desire to return to center then those natural forces pulling it back can and will only grow stronger and weightier.

      2. This is evidenced by the fact that history has proven that you can't kill an idea and even trying to do so only strengthens it and adds yet more weight and counterforce to the aforementioned pendulum.

      3. People have an innate desire to be free. To be left alone to raise their families among other family and like minded people, free of government telling them what to do, how to do it, when to do it and extorting taxes from them that are used to create instruments of state that are used to force them to comply against their will.

      If these leftists hate the MAGA movement they had best look in the mirror. For it is a movement born out of their hubris in violating of these immutable historical precedents.

      This of course brings us to rule number 4. Such hubris and arrogance in destroying and suppressing the rights of others who simply want to be left alone can and will explode into resistance and then violence that will go far beyond any of their imaginations of control.

      Imperialists and socialists of every stripe have tried over and over across the centuries and each successive attempt becomes shorter and shorter as the will and the technology to subvert them grown larger and more accessible. But then that's another lesson of history isn't it?

    3. Yeah, yeah, yeah Putin is a remorseless murdering thug. Not the first in Russian history and probably not the last either.

      But... Where do the western powers get the arrogance to think that they can reimpose on Russia the borders and conditions of the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk wherein Ukraine was to be nominally free but in reality an occupied German protectorate.





      Russia is not the one prostrate under the conditions of still unsettled revolutionary chaos as it was in early 1918. In fact it is the west not Russia that is on the verge of a self imposed chaos and social unrest. Conditions that will only get worse as the fall temperatures fall into the cold of winter. Somehow I don't think global warming will save them.

      At this point ignorance of their own history is the west's failure and weakness. Now come the repercussions. Got any extra f
      firewood? If you do you might become rich.

    4. If a single word of Blinkin's press conference declaring that the bombing of the Nordstrom pipeline as an opportunity was true he would have proposed at the same time:

      1. Diplomatic initiative to move forward on the long proposed natural gas line from the southern Persian Gulf, thru Iraq and Syria to under water to Greece and Italy.

      2. Diplomatic initiatives to stabilize Libya to stop the flow of refugees and increase the flow of natural gas and oil thru existing pipelines.

      3. Temporary suspension of restriction on non US flagged vessels transporting LNG and refined oil products from US port to US port.

      4. Government subsidies for the design and construction of new LNG tankers in US shipyards. To help feed both the US, European and global markets.

      None of that will happen however because Davos doesn't want it to happen. Why? Because they want to kill off 90% of global populations. Covid was the first attempt, a test run for control systems. Next one is going to be another manufactured disease combined with massive food and energy shortages.

      Tactically blowing up Nordstream was just about taking a major card out of Putin's hand. Strategically it was about Davos signaling that no more pipelines will be built at all.

      But these elitist rich fools can't conceive that the chaos they have set in motion can quickly slip out of control and into the madness and blood on a pattern of 1789 in Paris.

      OR...it could have been done by some existing oil and ng producer or producers seeking to maximise their own sales price globally and in Western Europe especially.

      Beyond that I have yet to see any announcements as to what ships were in the area, who they belonged to and what if any moon pool deep dive or ROV capabilities they have. Neither has there been any public announcement who has been awarded an inspection contract by either Russia, Germany or any of the consortium members who own the pipeline.



      SO UNTIL FURTHER SUCH INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE EVERYTHING ANYBODY SAYS AS TO ACTIONS OR MOTIVATIONS, INCLUDING THIS AUTHOR, IS EITHER PROPAGANDA BULLSHIT OR PURE SPECULATION.

    5. The Ukrainian attack on the Russian bridge connecting to the Crimean peninsula should pretty much lay to rest any further bullshit about the Russians being the ones who blew up the Nordstream pipelines.

      The attack on the bridge may be a logistical set back for the Russians but it hardly qualifies as the total disaster it's being portrayed as. The Russians still control the entire north shore of the Sea of Azov that constitutes the land bridge to the Crimean peninsula. That's why the fighting for Mariupol was so intense and protracted.

      With Putin having already announced a partial mobilization and satellite imagery showing strategic bomber forces being moved to more forward bases, unless sainer heads prevail this war is far from over.

      The bombing of the pipelines and now the bridge is also likely to stir Russian patriotism and add to the lines at the recruiting stations.

      The last time the Russians surrendered was in 1918 and that only came about because Russia was prostrate from the chaos of revolution and those losses were quickly reversed after the German capitulation in the west. Throughout WWII there were advances and reversals '43, '44 and early '45. I'd say there is about a zero chance of them giving up anytime soon.

    6. OPEC and the oil price scam.

      All behind closed doors all of this is agreed to before any moves in the game are played.

      OPEC+ gets to make a big (and meaningless) PR play by cutting production to jack the price back closer to 100 deflated US dollars a barrel.

      Biden then gets to make a big (and meaningless) PR play by yammering about "reconsidering relations" with Saudi Arabia and threatening to move anti-aircraft systems from Saudi Arabia to Ukraine.

      The Saudis then get to play the PR card by publicly snubbing Biden and gets to bank "Street cred" standing up to the bullying Americans.

      Then while the world looks at the public plays with the left hand the Saudis right hand gives Biden $400 million for his pet "Let's drive the world into depression and war" project.

      In the end OPEC+ gets the price of oil back up, Biden get his payoff for the war, and whatever graft Biden Inc. can pull off the top.

      And the payoff for Americans? We get to finance the scam through inflation and fraud with the added bonus of getting to watch our cities turn into kill zones, homeless camps and ash heaps.

    2. I think it's time we all put up the ole Christmas tree and focus on what we do have and thank God for that. I find the grifters of the world always busy lining their pockets and doing their best to destroy our history. Fortunately, they will not get to destroy our memories of history and our ability to pass them on. I think we are a bit like the ancient monks that recorded and saved what was and then re-entered that history back into civilization after the crazies left the scene. It seems they even wish to converge Christianity. But I will hang with Franklin Graham and Archbishop Vigano, they still represent reality in this world of the fallen.

    I hope the landmines get placed in time.
    Unbelievable. I know you don't like the cold; will, it is cold.

    1. Yes. the injectable B12 is the only one which works. The
      other avenues, i.e. patch, by mouth, are destroyed by
      gastric juices. You really need the Acidolphis to put
      good bacteria back into your body.
      Are you still going to California? Got to -3 degrees where
      I am in Western North Carolina. Going to stay close to
      home for Christmas. Family issues.
      Again, have the merriest Christmas possible.

  33. Hi, Brock. Hope your new year is starting out well. I don't know
    what you do with your time but did you read about Jeff Beck
    dying of bacterial meningitis within two weeks? No other info
    is available such where he might have contracted it. Johnny
    Depp was at his bedside. See ya!

  34. I always have a list that that never gets compete! (Because I'm getting ready for your visit) How about the football player?

    1. The football player seemed to have recovered without too
      much of a problem. What got me was the ambulance
      waited on the field for the football player's mother to arrive so she could ride in the ambulance. The football player
      must have been stabilized in the ambulance otherwise
      they would have been long gone. What a world.
      I'll have to see ya later - it's snowing.

    2. Hi, Brock. Here is a somewhat different take on Robert E.
      Lee that you might find interesting. You can open up and
      go to different articles the writer has available on the
      article.
      West Point and the Pentagon are wiping out the Confederacy
      whom I wish had been victorious.

  35. You are a man of very few words, friend.
    I am not a 'Sir' but a madam.
    Thanks.

  36. It does appear that the newly seated North Carolina Supreme Court is going to shake things up in the voting booth and the legislature. Bravo and best of luck to them and you.

  37. Great and thanks! My Great, Great Grandfather B.F. Moore was Father of
    the Bar and you can find much about him on my two sites if interested.
