    I must confess, I haven’t read, watched or listened to anything you’ve posted through the last three articles.
    Spent couple of antsy days watching this Arthur storm in Florida until it finally moved north of my 91 yr. old mom in law at Daytona, then all day yesterday ’til about 1 am this morning as it cleared Jacksonville NC where couple of old Navy friend are retired. They fine. But I tired and didn’t read and study as I should have.
    I dyed in the wool for the right reasons for this day and of all the activities around the usual Independence Day, but partying and grilling out in heat I can’t do now. Wife has stepped out to pick up Independence Day fast food for supper. 🙂
    I did see one video…Orwell’s last warning…

    “There will be no loyalty except loyalty to the process.”… “Moral…don’t let it happen, it depends on you.”

      Nothing to confess there, Unit. Some things are more, much more important than reading my scribbles. 🙂

      Glad they’re OK, and get some rest, this drivel isn’t going anywhere. 🙂

    Today Arthur is a has been now. This time of year I do spend time reading blogs about the weather about tropical storms and hurricanes, and cyclones in other parts of the globe.
    All eyes are on a cyclone heading for Japan…NEOguri! They better prepare. 🙂

      Yep. Survival is at least 90% about preparation. As we all should know. 🙂

        Yeah. I took advantage of a comic book ad years ago. Bought a dagger guaranteed to stick every throw. So prepared ! That all I tell NSA. 🙂

    Progressives at work back then.
    BlackHawk was my favorite comic fighting Nazi and Commies. Progressives didn’t like that then.

      Hah! They never have liked the American instinct to be ungovernable, and that’s one of the things those comic books taught us, as did our Dads and older brothers.

      They’d like us to be quiet little Euroweenies, and it ain’t gonna happen, ever I think. Freedom is too deep in our psyche. 🙂

        Yeah. I responded to C.L. not long ago after one of her articles @ RN. If she wants a military arm, there are places on the internet one can by a French rifle, never fired only dropped once. 🙂

      I still promulgate without an E.O. I am one, an adult. Just natural law and common sense from experience tells me so.
