Howard Zinn, Idiot

Howard Zinn was an acclaimed and well-respected historian.  Well, in some circles he was.  In other circles, he was viewed as an idiot. He ignored history and facts, preferring to make up history using his own viewpoint and anti-American ideals.
This “scholar” would seem to purposely take a section of history, then reverse what happened or not include all the facts.  He was exceptionally adept at ignoring facts or written history.
Almost without exception in his writings, he blamed anyone white, or anything American.
  I will not list his books, but if you want to read them, please go to the thrift shop, or book traders…Don’t spend good money on them.
 Just to know a little bit more about him, this website is very good.

Why am I blogging about this? Well, the left wing bloggers are upset that this “great” man has died.  This icon of ignorance has left the country he hated.  He is no longer spewing his venom upon the nation that allowed him the freedom to express his “thoughts”.
  Like his thoughts and his writings, wormfood.

Obama Who?

The other day, obama attacked the Supreme Court. Up untill now he has been content to attack anyone else that disagrees with his socialist agenda. The legislative branch is mostly in the socialist pocket, the executive branch, well, that is him and his fellow traitors.  That only leaves the judicial branch.  Many of the lower courts have gotten “progressive”. The only thing he could not control was the supreme court.  So now, he is attacking it. That makes you wonder why he is doing all this?  Why does he not recognize his position in this country as the elected president?  Is that not enough?  Is he so smart that he can fix all of our problems?  Is he so much more brilliant than any on else that he sees the right way and everyone else is wrong?
  Nope, dont think so.  I have not seen any records of his.  As far as I know he did not go to college.  All we are told is that he went to law school and passed.  That is all.  No one is allowed to see his transcripts. No one is allowed to access his records.  That alone makes me suspicious.  In my line of work, I have to be able to prove my education.    Also, to get a security clearance, we have to be able to account for everything. They want a detailed list of who you knew, who knew you, where you lived, where you worked……..Depending upon the type of clearance, you can be required to go back over 20 or more years.  Can the president do that? Can he justify to all the investigating agencies that he is trustworthy enough to have access to everything?  Are we sure who his father was?  How about his mother?  Is there proof who she was? We cannot even see if he was a live birth.

Personal update of Dallanta, the lost blogger

 

A few years ago, I read a book by Louis L’Amour called “The Walking Drum.”  Actually, I have read it several times over the years.  I love the book, what can I say.  So, the name of this blog reflects the overall premise behind that book (my opinion) and my attitude toward many things.

 It has been a long time and much has changed in my life since I last posted anything here.  For the last year, I have been working in Afghanistan.  Most of the blogging sites and Face book and My Space…. are all blocked content.  I just realized that my blogs were no longer blocked.  I had a good job in the states and I liked my job.  Trouble was, like many people, I did not have enough money to pay off bills.  They were killing us. That was the primary reason to come over here.  One other reason is that I wanted one more adventure?  before I got too old for it.  I discovered that I am not too old for it.  In fact, on some mornings, I have stood outside in the dark watching the sun come up on the Hindu Kush and thinking that this is what I do, this is what I have missed over all those years.    I know, only a complete idiot would think like that.  Who on earth would volunteer for a war zone in the middle of nowhere land and like his work?    I work 7 days a week and 12 hours each day.  They are lonely, long, sometimes cold and sometimes hot, really wet and dry as a bone. The dust storms are blinding, you cannot breath through the dust sometimes, and the ice and snow block off all movement.  Periodically the taliban throw mortars or rockets at us just to let us know they are there, and I love it all.  It is what I do.

  Some of the guys here complain all day about how bad it is and wonder if the money is worth it.  I have seen several people quit over the last year because of the living conditions and the danger.  I seem to be thriving on it though.  I hated my desk jobs in the states. They bored me to no end. And oh yes, they pay me dearly for this too.    Last week, I had my one year anniversary here. I am planning for two or three years here, but we will see how that goes.   This blog is not about me.  The remainder of my blogs will be about America, Islam, terrorists, treason, the Constitution, whatever.  Yes, another political blog from a patriotic right wing gun owner; not to be confused with a left wing extremist.

  I welcome anyone to respond, even if you disagree.  But don’t think for a moment that you will convert me to any liberal socialist causes or viewpoints.

Conspiracy or Business as Usual

 I normally do not follow or believe in conspiracy theories.  Saying that, I guess it must be easier for a group to conspire because no-one believes it happens.

  I love my country, but I trust any of our politicians about as much as I can toss one.
  The more I read, research, and listen to news though, it gives an impression that their really are groups out there that are conspiring for one thing or another.
  What is a conspiracy? If you look up the definition of conspiracy, you will see that the definition is about as clear as mud. So, here is my opinion of what a conspiracy is. A conspiracy is an ideal or actions taken by one or more individuals to further a specific goal, idea, or opinion; or to subvert someone else’s ideals, actions, group, The democrats are conspiring, the republicans are. the iranians are definitely doing it.  Come to think of it, most people are conspiring in one way or another.
   So much negativism about a conspiracy theory?  Just because it is a conspiracy theory does not mean it is nonexistant.  That is kind of like, just because I am paranoid doesn’t mean they are not out to get me.
  I guess that trying to figure out how to make my employer pay me for staying home is different from conspiring to get my man in office so he can work for what I want.
  
Hmmm, so the label of conspiracy theory does not exist; if someone is planning something to further their interests or those of their group, then it is not a theory.
  In light of this, I make my own assumption about it.
 
  I read too much and watch the news on TV more than I should.  All it does is tick me off.  I also read the news on-line.  The major news stations on TV do have their own agenda and slant.  Even the no-spin type news is the same way. 

 
  Over the last few weeks I keep getting bothered by this “conspiracy theory”, and I would hope it is just the rambling thoughts of this over-the-hill old fart that is just not happy with the kinds of change we are having  in this world.
  In the U.S., we are having so many problems that we are dealing with.
  The high price of fuel and food hit everyone’s pocketbook and does have an effect on our standard of living.  In addition to this, we have major problems with illegal immigration, border control, terrorism, iraq war, our elected and soon to be elected leaders, national security, and our personal freedoms and rights.

 These problems are either handled ineffectivly or not at all.  That is clear to most Americans now.  We yell and write and threaten, but it has no effect on how our elected rulers conduct business.  They keep doing things the way they believe to be right, getting the same results, not following the will of the people, and miring us down.

  While we are so busy worrying about money and oil, the war and terrorists, or the illegal aliens, we are not seeing what else is going on.  It appears to me that there are many more problems that are not “newsworthy” or done on the quiet with no fanfare, no publicity, and no one except the bloggers seem to be paying any attention at all! Are we being blindsided or misdirected. We have NAFTA, GATT, the  NAU.  Our goverment leaders and the very wealthy keep discussing how to open borders between Canada and Mexico. It has become politically incorrect to question anyones motives on anything. The 1st and the 2nd amendment, among others,are under attack by the Supreme Court, leftists, foreigners, and treasonous bastards.  After 9/11 it became acceptable for Americans to give up certain rights “for our own security”.  Our founding fathers warned us about this very thing, but people pay no attention or they believe they are smarter than the founding fathers. Hell, the Supreme Court has given RIGHTS to prisoners of war!  Now they can use our own laws against us!  If that had happened in WWII we would have lost the war.
The United Nations is a joke, but they are dangersous.  They do not like us,they want to control us. The news media will not discuss many of these other problems. There is an organization called CAIR. It is the Council on American Islamic relations. Many of their founders have been found guilty of terrorism. Several have either been deported or put in jail.  We do not hear about that at all.  On the list of organizations that Obama has supported you will find CAIR. They are also on the list of his supporters. The media and our leaders will not discuss this group here in the United States.  I guess that since it is an islamic group, it must be politically incorrect to question them.
  The first order of business should be to control the borders. The 2nd order of business should be to control congress.  Lets start over.  Lets not vote for any incumbant.  Vote out ALL of these idiots that cannot semm to do a darn thing right, or they are doing it right for themselves and their organization.
