The Razors Edge

After doing some pondering about what, if anything I wanted to say about the state of our nation In the Year Of Our Lord 2021, I have come to the conclusion that we are on the razors edge of self annihilation.

Last year I literally spent the day cleaning and oiling weapons of self defense and loading magazines in the fearful hope that I wouldn’t have to be using them anytime soon.

This year will see me doing so again without that uncertainty.

There will be no fireworks to speak of around here.

They have been banned for years now inside the city limits but because of the recent heat and the lack of rain, the entire county has banned fireworks due to the elevated fire danger.

I’m positive there will be some going off anyway, there are still plenty of BFYTW Americans around here.

Me, I don’t give a shit one way or another.

The America we grew up in is long gone.

What is yet to come that is going to replace it is still up in the air at the moment but that tipping point is approaching rapidly.

I still have the T shirt from that concert way back in 1991.

A lifetime ago now.

Like me it is getting worn out and easily damaged.

Representative of days gone by that will never return.

But still here none the less.

Some things hang around a lot longer than you would expect.

Like the idea of Liberty and Justice for all.

All is not lost yet but some of it is never coming back.

The Wheel of Life spins on and on.

At each revolution the same spoke comes around again and again though.

One of those spokes has Freedom engraved on it.

Until the day I die.

I promise.

  3. I am figuring we are going to celebrate two 4th of Julys… The original 4th and when we finally are victorious over the communist left and their wanna be tyranny.It may be Sept 4th or March 8th, but it will be a day of Independence! I don’t mind a second day of shooting off fireworks and having family picnics.

  4. Im with you phil, hanging on by a thread is the America that was handed down to us by those willing to sacrifice all. We owe it to them and to future generations to keep up the fight, even if it is within our own borders. BFYTW.

  5. Amen, brother. We haven’t given up, we just understand what it means to let slip the dogs of war. We don’t want war, we just want to be left alone. But the time is near when we will cast aside our old lives and commit our lives, our fortunes, and our honor to kicking those assholes back to the stone age.

      I imagine the desire to be a slave might be ‘eleutherophobia’, but I am not familiar with that.

  7. Preach it, Brother Phil! Another sermon about a vague conspiracy to take away unspecified freedoms. Yet you own weapons and freely preach violent insurrection on the internet.

    Did you know that traffic signals are a secret plot by the deep state to suppress your freedom of movement? Think about it.
