Posted on 09/15/2013 7:09:32 AM PDT by Tainan
I am just so tired of seeing the same stuff over and over again. I dearly love the U.S.A. I am a VN veteran an and a Mil /Govt employe. Now retired ...some what. Seen a lot in my years.
Just pissed-off when I think abut moving back to the U.S.A. for living.
Not much more...just a brief rant about hope and hopelessness.
obviously a vanity.
Come back and help us boot these bastards out.....Thanks for your service....being a former Marine I welcome you back brother.
I have big hopes for the 2014 midterm elections.
God is still in Charge and things will get a LOT Better
Mother died at 100 in 2008. Whenever I got down, she always reminded me that when the pendulum swings too far in one direction, it does likewise in the other and will always settle in the middle. Don’t give up, continue to fight in whatever way you can. There is hope!
I’d guess what you’re expressing is an exhaustion concerning the never ending attacks against culture, guns, and freedom. You’re probably tired of the incipient political correctness that causes everybody who is white to self-monitor everything you say for fear you’ll offend someone who will sue you, attack you, or just shoot you. It seems as though when one attack is defeated (like in the Colorado recall) ten more take place.
Well, liberals are like the Energizer bunny. they will never give up. On the other hand, we are overexposed to trivial and inconsequential attacks that will never amount to a hill of beans. It’s hard to separate those from the ones that threaten all of society.
I’d prescribe a rest from FR. Turn off the TV. Pack the family and take a vacation. Don’t read a newspaper. (Does anybody still read the newspaper?) Get a kindle and read a book. (Oh, here’s a few books!)
It’s pretty easy to be discouraged when you see the things we are seeing every day. Just remember, politicians are not really representative of the people and the things the media chooses to concentrate on is not what is going on with the average everyday American. It will get better when we can finally boot out the current media and replace them with real people who actually have hearts and souls.
See my tagline.
” I *am* William Wallace! And I see a whole army of my countrymen, here in defiance of tyranny. You’ve come to fight as free men... and free men you are. What will you do with that freedom? Will you fight?
Veteran: Fight? Against that? No! We will run. And we will live.
William Wallace: Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you’ll live... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin’ to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take... OUR FREEDOM!
Welcome Home, Brother.
It needs a lot of work.
You must be one of those sunshine patriots. We don’t need them.
He has preserved you and brought you to the perplexing and disturbing place where you find yourself, for a reason. It may not be apparent - of course it is not apparent -- but you are part of a much, much bigger story. Dimensions you cannot fathom.
I'm talkin' about BIG.
I absolutely believe God is in charge which is why there is a possibility...no, a probability that thing will not get better...at least as we might define better. This country has turned its back on God for the most part and our Lord, in His infinite justice and wisdom, may decided destruction to purge this country of its evil is the righteous sentence.
Hold strong to your faith, trust in Him, and he will see you through. Never stop praying.
After going toe-to-toe with the NVA in Vietnam, you’re worried about having to deal with the passive aggressive liberal wimps stateside? I think you have nothing to worry about.
I want you to know that I understand what you are saying. I am a generation behind, and most likely haven’t seen a fraction of the shit you have you, but feel similarly “tired”. I find as every day passes I am becoming more and more like my old man was in his middle age... intolerant.
I know other people have chimed in with ideas to “take your mind off things”... the only suggestion I can give... and I do so in full consideration that this advise is what I will need to give myself in the future, Hell, I may as well listen to my own advice now... is be “available” to others.
Everyone has a mother and father and a story... while some people are simply not worth the time of day there are many others that can gain from your story.
Don’t feel isolated and alone in your “malaise”. It does get worse before it gets better.
You sound old and cranky
Sorry but speak up about what is wrong with America.
We need to keep and grow AMERICAN production.
For the entire last generation, we have sent American production elsewhere.
Largely to China.
BRING IT BACK. Now.
The Marxo/Progs/libs ( or whatever they are calling themselves today) are laughing at us!
The NRA may win skirmishes but every government school day children are being INDOCTRINATED into hating and fearing guns. The NRA chops down trees but in our nation's single-payer and socialist-entitlement K-12 schools the Marxists are indoctrinating forests of future voters.
I am appalled that any conservative or Christian would allow their child to attend a government owned and run socialist-entitlement K-12 school. Nearly every teacher in one of these schools was trained by godless Marxists in godless colleges of education. Even if the teacher is not overtly Marxist her/his Marxist indoctrination and training will leak through.
Finally....When the Judgment comes, I expect that God will be especially annoyed with Christians and conservatives. Why? Because they turned their children over to care and influence of evil godlessness in the schools and media. It's a millstone thing, you see.
Well, liberals are like the Energizer bunny. they will never give up.
There are whole counties and even entire states where conservatives and Christians could render Marxo/Progs powerless and COMPLETELY collapse their two most powerful weapons:
(1) Remove your children from any government school. Remove your child from any godless private school. Remove your child from any liberation theology school. ( from pre-k through college).
(2) Turn off the Marxist/Prog media and inform their sponsors that you have done so.
Finally....When the Judgment comes, is it possible that God will be especially annoyed with Christians and conservatives? Maybe. Why? Because they turned their children over to care of the evil and godless Moloch. It's a millstone thing.
Yes I too believe this current MESS we are living through to be a part of Gods judgement on American
Long term...things will get ever so much better.
The problem is that we are surrounded by a godless Marxist forest that is busy planting future Marxist voting trees in nearly every school in this nation ( both private and government from K-12 through graduate school).
Unless the NRA, the Pro-Life groups, and every conservative think tank or Tea Party organization wakes up and understands this fundamental fact, this nation is LOST! They will LOSE the cultural war for freedom no matter how many skirmishes they may win in the near future.
“YOU CAN ACT LIKE A MAN!”
God will makes things better. The recall in CO is a nice boost for one’s hopes, but we’ve been down this road before. Too many dopes in this country. Dependent dopes.
Please read my post #21.
Colorado was a skirmish. We will LOSE the larger war if we continue on the same path.
It will not get better unless we get the nation’s children away from Marxist influence and Marxist media.
That means working to close DOWN the government run socialist-entitlement and single-payer schools. It means building alternatives to our nation’s Marxist run colleges and universities.
It means turning off the Marxist media and letting sponsors know that you have done so. I wonder how many Christians and conservatives allowed American Idol back into their home after Lady Ga Ga simulated intercourse during the final program?
Keep the faith, keep resisting, keep praying.
God is still in Charge and things will get a LOT Better
1) Millons of Christians and conservatives can show up to buy a chicken sandwich but can’t figure out a way to end abortion. Really?
2) On Monday morning the government’s GODLESS and single-payer and socialist-entitlement schools will be STUFFED full to the brim with the children of Christians and conservatives. And...In many states and counties Christians and conservatives could SHUT THESE GODLESS SOCIALIST SCHOOLS DOWN **immediately** by simply removing their children.
3) Nearly every teacher in this nation from pre-K through graduate school has been trained by godless Marxists in Marxist run colleges and universities and conservatives and Christian **willing** turn their precious children over to their care?
Nope! I think this nation is in for a solid judgement and I suspect the God is especially annoyed with Christians and conservatives, especially for how they have treated their children.
I have been speaking of better in the LONG LONG TERM
America has truly gone to HELLL in a handbasket Yes
We know the final chapter says GOD WINS.
this is a vanity thread, right?
..no, a probability that thing will not get better...at least as we might define better.
It will NOT get better unless **CHRISTIANS** and **CONSERVATIVES** repent!
Honestly...Is Friday night government school football more important than the souls of their children?
Please read my posts #21, #24, and #26 above.
In the final Judgment, I expect that God will be especially annoyed with Christians and conservatives for how they have treated their children.
Well....Yes the pendulum swings. It took nearly a thousand years to swing through the Dark Ages.
"To the last plane...
To the last bullet...
To the last minute...
To the last man..."
"We fight... We fight...
We fight... We fight..."
Americans never give up the fight for our God-given liberty...
This is our country...
... the country of a sovereign people!
Even the useful idiots are tiring of the lies, deceit, corruption and waste...
We will take America back...
Make the effort...
Get into the arena of ideas:
Contend for what is rightfully ours...
NEVER GIVE UP!
Those were Europeans/Western Civilization, I don't think Mexico or the places where our population comes from today, did much swinging.
We will not tire, we will not falter and we will not fail, against enemies foreign and domestic.
Thanks for your service, Tainan.
live - free - republic
I moved back to the USA from Taiwan in 1980 after 4 years there. I lived in Taipei, Peitou, and Tianmou, but traveled down south quite a bit. I went to your home page and enjoyed your market photos - really brought back memories. Best of luck, and may God go with you, Tainan!
Why would you wanna be there when all the action is here? I wouldn’t miss this for the world!! I will be right in the middle of it.
the Judgment is coming. We have a million bikers going to DC to show support of lost loved ones to terrorism. But I ask this, what if the terrorism is the beginning of the judgment? What do we need to do first to delay the just wrath of God?
Overturn Roe. Demolish the alters to molech.
Should have said: based on her lifetime experience....
I don’t respond to personal insults, either.
Can I persuade you to think a little beyond this?
Yes, indeed....But....What about the hearts of those who would consider an abortion? Let's say abortion were outlawed in the U.S. Yes, it would certainly be better. But...The same people who approve of abortion would still be going to the polls casting their vote for Marxists.
Along with abolishing abortion equally important is to change the hearts of the people in our nation. That's where schools enter the picture.
We can NOT continue to have the majority of our nation's children attending the government's godless and socialist single-payer K-12 schools and godless universities and NOT be under God's condemnation. Children who attend these schools MUST think and reason godlessly just to cooperate in the classroom and they risk learning to be comfortable with socialism.
In many counties and even in a fair number of entire states, if Christians and conservatives simply removed their children the entire godless system of socialist-entitlement schooling and Marxist indoctrination would immediately collapse.
Live in Hopey Changey, die in despair.
Just remember, our Rights come from God Almighty, not from Politicians. Compliance with Tyranny is Treason.
Time to upgrade my Tagline.
I agree with you, WT.
Christians all over the world - China, Uganda, Egypt, Syria - are being tortured and killed as they stand for their faith. We think we are being persecuted here because Seth McFarlane mocks us on Family Guy.
To add to your point: how many Christians opt out of Sunday night service (assuming their church still has one) to languish in front of the TV, watching typical filth that passes for entertainment? American Christians raise nary a word as the once great US military is being reduced to troops of homosexuals and pregnant women...a military where chaplains cannot pray in the name of Jesus Christ, but Muslim soldiers have chaplains exclaiming the greatness of Allah.
Why would God allow Christians in Egypt to die as martyrs for Christ while American Christians consider themselves so special that they will not have to go through judgement? We are blind.
You just did, sweetiecakes.
