Just Say NO!

With the elevation of Etch-a-Sketch Romney to challenge ObamaNation maybe it is time for We, The Exasperated, to just say NO!

It was originally Nancy Reagan’s idea after all. Can you just say NO? Will you just say NO?

Maybe it is my imagination, but I seem to see a number of examples in my daily life where people have just taken a tip from the lawlessness of ObamaNation and assumed the cause of Constitutional Restoration without consulting their neighbors, or without asking authorities for permission or without any real concern for consequences beyond the message of resistance and necessary disobedience.

To judge from radio commercials for Tax Resolution Services (CLICK LINK HERE)a number of people have wandered off the 1040 Income Tax reservation without regret or apology. Even at the low, low, settlement price of a 10 or 20 percent payout, people cannot be persuaded to come back to the mother ship and sign ZEE PAPER!

It is a somewhat mixed message. On one hand enough people have quit filing to the point where very expensive commercials try to persuade them to come clean and on the other hand all the commercials in the world hardly seem to dent the outcome.

So how about it? Will the person you see in the mirror every day find something, anything to just say NO?

Will you burn your 1040 form?

Will you remove the license plate from your car?

Will you refuse to renew your drivers license?

Will you leave the little checkbox for race on some obnoxious form empty?

Will you refuse to volunteer your Social Security number just because some file clerk demands it?

Will you light a cigarette in a NO Smoking zone even if you do not smoke?

For Heaven’s sake just drive around the parking lot without your seatbelt fastened!

Anything to break the hypnotic trance of tyranny which suffocates us all!

Surely you can find some element of resistance to let the world know you have cast off the cloak of sheeplehood.

Do not ask me what I think. Do not ask me what I intend to do. YOU decide. All by yourself.

Remember the repeal of 1,000,000 statutes begins with a single dissident act.

When will you begin your march?

Really, it’s for the children…….

Nick Vujicic, Genuine Tough Guy

Would that Chuck Norris be so lucky to be as tough as this guy.

Even if you are a minority within a minority of a minority, you can take lessons from a guy who is literally in a class by himself.

As the venerable Colonel Jeff Cooper observed: “Humans use their minds to fight, weapons are just accessories.”

Every day of his life Nick Vujicic has used his mind to fight.

Never say never again!

Operation EFAD From Travis McGee

Since my Free Republic Champion (Copernicus where art thou?) has been AWOL for over a year I do not follow events at Free Republic as closely as I once did, but I have learned long time Freeper and author Travis McGee has put his money where his heart is and concocted an interesting Falun Gong saber -rattling exercise.

On March 1st his contemporary action thriller *Enemies, Foreign and Domestic* will be available for free download from Amazon in a maneuver called Operation #EFAD.

The idea is to pump up download numbers so quickly the book will rise to the top of Amazon’s Bestseller Index.

You can help in two ways:

1. Publish the link everywhere.
2. Download the book.

It is a good read, but even if you already have a paid copy download another one for friends and family.

This could be a useful Public Relations Coupe if it works as designed.

Since Free Republic now seems to be AWOL two additional links to help explain the EFAD concept:

Tantalizing Excerpt:

Communiqué #1: D-Day Minus Seven, February 23

Want to join a beat-up old ex-Navy SEAL, ocean sailor and book writer on a real-world covert cyber operation?

I knew you did. So here’s the deal. The idea is a national clandestine psyop, using my first novel as a vehicle.

On next Thursday, March 1, Enemies Foreign And Domestic will be put into Amazon Kindle’s free library.

Where EFAD’s free download promotion will be different from those of the thousands of fantasy/romance/vampire novels currently offered on Kindle, is that I’m simultaneously coordinating a mass plan to ensure that Operation EFAD goes hyper-viral on all constitutionally-oriented, freedom-loving, and Second Amendment websites and blogs at the same time.

Or on at least on as many as I can reach, and that is where you come in. There are literally hundreds of patriotic websites and blogs, and I can only reach a few. You can reach them all, every last one. And then some. More about this in the next communiqué on D Minus Six.

North Carolina State University Rifle Team

Yes, there really are college level Rifle Teams! Yes, they really do offer college athletic scholarships!
Perhaps the day will come when it will be possible to watch them compete on the 2nd Amendment channel. (right next to the golf channel!)

Tantalizing excerpt:

Raleigh, N.C. — Deep inside the basement of Reynolds Coliseum, North Carolina State student-athletes are working on their shooting – rifle shooting.

NC State has the only fully-sanctioned, scholarship-level rifle-shooting team in the ACC. They are also fully coed with men and women competing against each other on a truly level playing field.

“If you look at the NCAA Championships, you’ll see roughly half men, half women,” said head coach Keith Miller. “Two years ago, TCU won the championship with an all-women’s team. First time that had ever happened.”

They may be the best team in the ACC no one has ever heard of – even on their own campus.

THIS DAY IN GASTRONOME

Happy New Year!

Skinny Moose explains Mincemeat Pie over on his blog:

Tantalizing Excerpt:

With plenty of venison in the house what to make for Christmas? I knew it would have to have venison in it so that’s when I decided to try to make a Mincemeat Pie for Christmas.
Never heard of mincemeat? Well it is an old pie that is older than our country, and probably was made by some of the first settlers to travel over from England.

Mincemeat developed as a way of preserving meat without salting or smoking some 500 years ago in England, where mince pies are still considered an essential accompaniment to holiday dinners just like the traditional plum pudding. This pie is a remnant of a medieval tradition of spiced meat dishes, usually minced mutton, that have survived because of its association with Christmas. This pies have also been known as Christmas Pies. Mince pie as part of the Christmas table had long been an English custom.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas is a time for reflection and renewal in the company of family and friends. This year I thought my faithful readers (Thanks Mom!) and first time visitors might enjoy something old and something new, something sacred and something, well, a little more profane……in other words, a little something for everyone in this, the annual Christmas compilation post.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!
