Will you shoot Americans?

.  Will you shoot Americans? My friends, as a nation we are being degraded...militarily, economically, and morally.  What I say is what I believe...but cannot prove, unless it's documented somewhere.  So, here's a few things you may not know or want to believe: you've heard about the massive purchases of ammunition by the Department of Homeland Security, and it's been mentioned by me.  Any idea why they need all that ammunition?  First, you'll be told that it's for training purposes...and that's a lie.  The bulk of the ammunition purchased was for hollow-point bullets which are made that way for one purpose and one purpose inflict as much damage to whatever it hits, as possible.  Depending upon the source you listen to, the DHS purchased enough ammunition for a 30 year war, or another source will say that they have enough bullets to shoot every man, woman and child in the United States ten times!
Still another report will tell you that they bought up all that ammunition so that private citizens would not have it, when push came to shove, and the government started rounding up all the now-disarmed civilians.  The American population is the most-armed population in the world and if people are smart, they will have been salting away ammunition for whatever guns they possess.  My purchases, for the weapons I own, are enough to hold off marauders, if it comes to that.  A theory put forth is that some sort of "event" will take place, the president will declare martial law, suspend the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and other documents that restrict the powers of government.
            The current president, according to my thinking, wants to be president-for-life, or king, or some other title that will keep him in office until he completely destroys this country.  The military, as has been reported, is being deliberately purged of any high-echelon officers that will not follow orders...especially if that order is to fire on American civilians.  The old saying, where's there's smoke there's fire is applicable in this situation.  There's just too many former high-ranking officers telling the same stories.  They have been fired or relieved of command because they didn't pass the so-called litmus test.  Are you old enough to remember what December 7th 1941 was?  If you do remember, then you also remember that America was the fortress for the free world.  We made things, great things, for war, and then for peace.  That is being threatened now by the current president who has a not-so-secret agenda to make this country into something resembling Iran or Somalia. 
            Maybe this is just the ramblings of an old man who remembers what America was like.  In truth, I may be an alarmist, or a conspiracy-theorist, but for my own well-being, I'll make sure that I err on the side of common sense and that common sense tells me that something is taking place...something that I don't like to think about, but I must...and maybe you should be thinking about it too.

A present for the American people.

A present for the American people.
            As we head into the holiday season, it seems only right that the American people get a present.  After all, they have been giving, these last couple of decades and, really haven't been getting much back for their investment.  Maybe it's just my imagination at work again, but it seems as though, during World War Two, we were king of the hill, and it's been going downhill from that point on.  So, let's think about what we, as Americans, could give ourselves, as a present.  What would we want?   Certainly we want peace in the world...but are we going to get it?  The short answer is no, and the short reason is two words...greed and power, and so long as those remain as desirable to some people, the world will not be at peace.  Oh, wait a minute...there is ONE solution to that.  Islam.                                                                                
Islam, the religion of peace, says that the world will be at peace when it is the one remaining theology in the world.  Unfortunately, in order to achieve that peace, they will have to murder a goodly portion of the population of the world.  They have been at that task for almost 1400 years and during that time they have brought peace to regions merely by slaughtering all of the inhabitants of that region...and those that they did not slaughter, they made slaves of them.  What civilized society deems to be heinous crimes are condoned by their holy book, the Quran.  As far as I know the other big-time religions have made modifications down through the ages, so that they would be in keeping with the times.  Not so Islam.  The book, as written by their prophet, is proclaimed perfect and therefore nothing in it can be matter how much it goes against modern mores.
What else would the American people want as a present?  How about a return to “the good old days”?  That’s not possible, since we don’t have time travel…yet.  However, there ARE things that we could bring forth, again, from those days…things like patriotism, industry, trust in government.  Let’s look at these things for a bit.  It makes me cringe when I hear from so-called singers absolutely demolishing the national anthem.  If they cannot sing it, as it was written, and as it should be sung, then turn down the request.  How many people anymore get tears in their eyes when they hear a good rendition of America The Beautiful, or when the flag passes by?  Why are we more interested in sports than science?  Where are the mental giants that we will need to survive in this century?
            As I said, during World War Two, we were king of the hill.  We supplied arms to our friends, all over the world, and with their help, we defeated two of the best military groups in the world at that time.  We made things…good things, things that the rest of the world wanted.  We had the best workers, building the best things, dreaming up the best things to sell to the rest of the world.  Now, “made in the USA” is a rarity, and it doesn’t make any difference whose name is on the product.  Now, if we want to make things, and I’m pretty sure we do, and we can…those jobs are not around.  We have become a part-time nation, and that’s a sad commentary on America.   It seems to me that a little common sense, and plain talk, would go a long way to straightening out the road we’re on. 
Trust in government?  Not now, and the general feeling of distrust has been growing for a long time.  Presidents, administrations, members of congress, judges…all have been slowly, but surely, rotting on the vine.  That sort of rottenness doesn’t happen overnight, or even during one or two terms, but so long as we have “career” politicians that rottenness will continue to develop.  The old saying is that a fish rots from the head down…does that suggest anything to you?  It was Sir Walter Scott, way back in the 1800’s who said “oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive”.  Think about that.
